Solarimpulse_large

On Saturday evening the solar-powered aircraft Solar Impulse touched down safely at John F. Kennedy International Airport, completing its coast-to-coast journey across the domestic United States. The aircraft took off from Mountain View, California on May 3rd, piloted at the time by Bertrand Piccard. It was the first step in a multi-leg trek; Piccard first flew the plane to Phoenix, Arizona. Subsequent jaunts took the plane to Texas, Missouri, and Virginia, with Piccard handing off flying duties to pilot André Borschberg along the way. Each stretch took between 19 and 25 hours, with the vehicle and the Solar Impulse team resting several weeks between excursions.

21stcentury_large

Last December Rupert Murdoch’s News Corporation announced that it would be splitting into two distinct corporate entities, and that vision has finally been realized. As of 4:30PM ET on Friday, News Corp and 21st Century Fox were officially separated — putting the majority of the company’s profitable ventures under the latter banner. 21st Century Fox includes the 20th Century Fox film and television studio, Fox Sports, FX, and the Fox News Channel. News Corp, on the other hand, will oversee the publishing divisons, including the New York Post, The Wall Street Journal, The Times of London, and book publisher HarperCollins.

Northrop Grumman’s MQ-4C Triton long-range drone completes first flight (video)

DNP  Northrop Grumman's MQ4C Triton longrange drone completes first flight

Northrop Grumman’s MQ-4C Triton unmanned aircraft is one step closer to serving the Navy in reconnaissance and surveillance missions, having just completed its first flight. The drone spent 80 minutes in the air, reaching an altitude of 20,000 feet. That’s child’s play compared to the aircraft’s full potential: according to the Navy, it can soar at up to 60,000 feet and stay airborne for as long as 30 hours, due in no small part to its 130-foot wingspan. By 2015, the Triton will undergo operational testing and evaluation, and the Navy hopes to add additional aircraft to its existing fleet (currently just two strong). Check out the long-range spy plane in action just past the break.

Microsoft completes Hotmail to Outlook.com upgrade, SkyDrive integration rolling out

Outlookwebmailfinal_1020_large

Microsoft announced on Thursday that it has now completed its Hotmail to Outlook.com upgrade. Over 400 million active accounts are now using the service, with Microsoft having migrated 150 petabytes of email data in just over six weeks. Alongside the milestone, Outlook.com is getting two new features: SMTP send and improved SkyDrive integration.

Improved SkyDrive integration and SMTP send

SMTP send allows Outlook.com accounts to send email directly through another email account’s SMTP server. In the past Outlook.com has supported this by using a “send on behalf” feature, but now email will send directly to recipients. “We knew this was a pain point for some people,” explains Microsoft’s Dick Craddock. “So now we’ve made it so that…

Ethiopian Airlines completes first commercial 787 Dreamliner flight since grounding

Ethiopian Airlines completes first commercial 787 Dreamliner flight since grounding

Nervous flyer? If so, it’s probably best you weren’t heading from Addis Ababa to Nairobi on business recently. If you were, you might have found yourself onboard the first commercial 787 Dreamliner flight since the global fleet was grounded due to concerns over battery failures. The flight comes just days after the FAA approved Boeing’s fix, prompting deliveries of the new craft to resume. With Japan already having cleared the 787 for takeoff, we can expect to see a few more of them in our skies soon. We’re more interested in joining the mile-high Android club.

Open webOS reaches version 1.0 on time, completes its open source transformation

via assets.sbnation.com

Today is the last weekday in September, which implies today is the last day for HP’s Open webOS team to keep to the roadmap it set for itself in January and full webOS’ open source transition. It turns out that the group had the ability to attain that objective, as Open webOS 1.0 is available now as a last, non-beta version. The operating system itself hasn’t experienced any significant modifications with the bump up to variation 1.0, however the web-based Enyo 2 application framework is now supported.

Exactly what does that all mean for customers, though? We have actually currently been told that initial webOS hardware won’t be supported, but now that open sourcing is complete the OS is prepared to be ported to other gadgets. HP won’t be taking the lead on that– it’s in the …
