Andrew Luck retires: New Colts starting QB Jacoby Brissett got a 24-hour heads up

Andrew Luck retires: New Colts starting QB Jacoby Brissett got a 24-hour heads up “He was like, smiling at the end,” Brissett said. “That’s what helped me gain clarity and an understanding of the situation."

RED ’s ambitious Hydrogen phone project is ending after the release of just a single device, the Hydrogen One, according to an announcement from company founder Jim Jannard that he is “shutting down the HYDROGEN project ” as he retires due to “a few health issues.”

RED is still committed to producing both the titanium and aluminum version of the RED Hydrogen , and says that it ’s going to give people who pre-ordered the Manufacturing difficulties are tricky, and anyone who preordered the phone over a year ago is going to be rightfully unhappy about the delay.

At the age of 70, RED founder Jim Jannard has announced he's retiring, saying that between his age and a few health issues "it is now time." As he steps away from the company, he also announced its Hydrogen phone project will end after producing just one device. When the Hydrogen One arrived late last year it brought some technology, like "4V" for its display and image capture that was innovative, but didn't live up to its $1,295 price.

Earlier this year RED announced plans to "radically" change the program and build a device to have wider appeal across pros and regular users. That's all done now, although the Hydrogen One will continue to receive software updates, and RED Digital Cinema is still operating with Jarred Land as its president. You'll just have to find your next moonshot phone from a camera company somewhere else.

Solar energy 'breakthrough' could replace fossil fuels in some industries .
If solar energy is truly going to take over from fossil fuels, it needs to be hot enough for not only generating power, but replacing industrial processes outright -- and even the 1,049F of the best solar concentrator systems wouldn't cut it. Heliogen, however, may have finally cracked that barrier. The Bill Gates-backed startup has successfully concentrated solar energy at "breakthrough" temperatures above 1,832F, making it toasty enough to replace fossil fuels for industrial tasks like producing cement or steel.The trick is the use of computer vision (aka a form of AI) to align a large array of mirrors as they reflect sunlight on a solitary target.
