This Video Game Company Has a Surprising Obsession with WWII Military History

Tracy Spaight has a job so cool it doesn’t sound real. He gets paid to travel around the world ensuring the historical accuracy of video games and overseeing his company’s support of military research on history expeditions.

Spaight works for Wargaming, the game company behind “World of Tanks” and now he’s also the brains behind the company’s new dramatized podcast, which aims to give a fresh take on the history of World War II.

‘The Finest Half Hour,” which combines slick production values and a devotion to storytelling, aims to explore the strategy of both Allied and Axis powers and root causes of the conflict that call back to World War I.

Among Spaight’s many adventures was an expedition to Myanmar to search for twenty lost Spitfires supposedly buried

Amazon Echo (2020) vs. Nest Audio: Which new smart speaker is best for the holidays?

Tech giants Amazon and Google always save their annual hardware events for the fall, and in 2020, they fell in back-to-back
weeks at the end of September. While Amazon’s event packed at least a dozen major announcements into a 45-minute time slot, Google stayed a little more modest with four major products in half-hour presentation. But both companies announced a new version of their signature smart speakers: the fourth-gen Amazon Echo and the spiritual successor to the Google Home, the Nest Audio.

We’re excited to get review units over the coming weeks so we can do a proper head-to-head comparison of the speakers, but for now, here’s how their specs stack up.

Amazon’s focus in 2019 was on hardware, rolling out half a dozen speakers and displays in a single year, but in 2020, Alexa is the star. Alexa’s improved home security features, more naturalistic speech

Fraud claims, DOJ probe and sexual abuse allegations cloud $2B deal between GM and Nikola truck startup

What seemed like a simple matter of crossing the t’s and dotting the i’s has turned into a protracted challenge for General Motors and Nikola, after negotiations to pair up and produce new zero-emissions trucks have been extended.

The $2 billion deal, announced Sept. 9, was billed as a “partnership made in heaven,” according to Nikola founder and then-chairman Trevor Milton, during a media call with GM CEO Mary Barra. But the Phoenix-based startup has since been hammered by claims of fraud, with a Securities and Exchange Commission probe now underway. Allegations surfaced this week of sexual abuse by Milton, who stepped down as chairman last week. Nikola’s stock has plunged to barely a quarter of what it was worth when the company went public last June.

Talks expected to wrap up today could now run through Dec. 3, at which time the proposed deal “may be terminated by either

‘Dating site technology’ to help heart failure patients find clinical trials

A UK charity for heart failure patients has developed a website which uses matching technology often used for dating sites to pair patients with appropriate clinical trials.

The Pumping Marvellous Foundation has launched the website, called cardiotrials.org, to mark World Heart Day in an effort to change how trials are recruited for and increase access to care.

The charity says it hopes the system can help take the pressure off the NHS by no longer relying on healthcare staff to identify potential patients suitable for trials.

The new website will allow patients to see what trials are currently running as well as match them to trials that suit their needs and requirements.

Heart failure expert Professor Mark Petrie, from Glasgow University, said the new system was a “huge step forward”.

He added: “That patients can now volunteer to join heart failure trials is fantastic. Specialist heart failure teams can now

Soteria Battery Innovation Group Signs Exclusive License and Option for a Battery Safety Technology by Oak Ridge National Laboratory

The licensed technology is for electrodes and foils for lithium ion batteries that are designed to break in a pre-defined geometry when the battery is physically damaged, effectively isolating the damaged part.  This can minimize the associated generated heat and avoid thermal runaway, or uncontrolled increasing temperature, thus rendering the battery safe.

“This technology can dramatically improve battery safety upon mechanical, thermal and electrical damage,” said ORNL’s Jianlin Li, a principle investigator of the technology. “This can simplify battery design and lead to higher energy density and lower cost.”

Combining the technology with Soteria’s own current collector technology was selected in 2019 for a $750,000 DOE Technology Commercialization Fund project, “Li-on batteries with Safer Current Collectors,” with support from the DOE Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, Vehicle Technologies Office.

The technology will be especially effective in vehicles, where physical damage can occur in automobile accidents and other

Baldur’s Gate 3 on Google Stadia will let YouTube viewers help steer the game when it arrives October 6th

Google has always wanted its cloud game-streaming service, Stadia, to change how YouTube streamers interact with their fans. Nearly ten months after release, Google is finally bringing its “Crowd Choice” feature to its first two games. Crowd Choice allows viewers to vote on, say, which team a streamer joins in the game, which piece of dialogue they pick, or other in-game choices the player might make. The streamer can ultimately decide if they want to follow the audience’s suggestion or make their own choice.

On October 1st, Dead by Daylight will launch on Stadia Pro, and it will be the first game to integrate Crowd Choice. In Dead by Daylight, the feature gives the audience a chance to vote whether the streamer should be a “killer” who is tasked with killing the other players in the match or one of the four “survivors” that is trying to evade or
