Like Wyze, Blink doesn’t charge for cloud storage. The XT2’s videos are stored in the cloud for up to a year, but there are two caveats. First, if you run out of cloud storage, Blink will delete old clips to make room for the new ones. Second, the maximum clip length is 20 seconds, which is a little light. There’s no way around this limitation, so what you see is what you get. … [Read more...] about The Best Smart Indoor Security Cameras

The Base’s operations would eventually stretch far beyond Nazzaro. This past November, 18-year-old Richard Tobin, an alleged member of the Base in South Jersey, was arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to commit vandalism of two synagogues in the Midwest. Two months later, in Maryland and Delaware, the FBI arrested three alleged Base members on weapons and other charges: 27-year-old Patrik Mathews, a former combat engineer in the Canadian Army Reserve turned international fugitive; 33-year-old Brian Mark Lemley; and William Garfield Bilbrough IV.

The main issue -- and the one which is the most difficult to overcome -- is getting Huawei's products into the hands of consumers with carriers unwilling to sell the devices, which would have served a built-in distribution channel. Its direct Chinese domestic competitor, Oppo, has mostly been able to overcome this with the OnePlus brand, and so has ZTE, which was also once on the entity list, but it now sells its products directly as well. Could Huawei do a deal with Amazon or Microsoft to resell the devices without violating the entity list restrictions? Potentially, yes, because Huawei's entity list inclusion does not restrict payments between parties. Would any of these be willing to consummate such a partnership on such a basis? That much is uncertain. … [Read more...] about Huawei P40 Pro: Android phone without Google? No problem!
It's retained a handful of employees and is negotiating debtor-in-possession financing to continue operating its satellites, which allows it to keep its spectrum license as it attempts to sell the business under the court bankruptcy process. The Financial Times notes that OneWeb's constellation is currently too small to offer telecoms services or generate revenue and the value of its spectrum remains unclear. … [Read more...] about Coronavirus: SpaceX internet-beaming rival OneWeb files for bankruptcy over COVID-19
