HP has announced a trio of refreshed Pavilion laptops which feature Intel’s new Tiger Lake processors, and go big with their green credentials, being the first of the company’s consumer notebooks which are made using recycled plastics including ocean-bound plastics. The revamped HP Pavilion 13, Pavilion 14, and Pavilion 15 laptops will be available from November and as mentioned are built around Intel’s 11th-gen mobile chips with integrated Xe graphics (the CPUs we’ve been hearing some good things about lately).

‘Fortnite: Save the World’ will shut down on macOS September 23rd

As a result, refunds are coming to “all players who purchased any Save the World Founder’s or Starter Packs (including Upgrades) and played Save the World on macOS between September 17, 2019 and September 17, 2020.” This announcement comes just after Apple said in a legal filing that Epic’s actions are a thinly-disguised attempt to reinvigorate Fortnite, citing Google Trends as evidence that interest had dropped some 70 percent in the last year. Apple is preventing us from distributing games on Mac which ends our ability to develop Fortnite: Save the World for the platform. Beginning September 23, 2020, Save the World will no longer be playable on Mac.

Going fully electric could save more than 6,000 lives in the US by 2050

When we talk about electric vehicles (EVs), we often speak of how they’re better for the planet than combustion engined vehicles. But it goes without saying that they’re also better for human health. Earlier this week, the American Lung Association published its “Road to Clean Air” report and detailed the impact that moving to EVs would have on respiratory health in the States. The ALA found that if the US pivoted totally to electric transport, the country could save more than 6,300 lives and prevent 93,000 asthma attacks over the next 30 years. If that wasn’t compelling enough, it would also translate to saving more than $72 billion in associated healthcare costs. [Read: 5 things to know when you’re buying your first electric vehicle] Those figures are contingent upon the US pivoting so that 100% of vehicle sales are electric by 2045. That includes passenger cars, heavy-duty vehicles, commercial vehicles, school buses, and airport shuttles. Basically, every kind of new vehicle sold by 2045 needs to be electric if the ALA’s estimations are to be met. That’s one huge leap forward for a country that has relied on combustion engine vehicles. At present, less than 5% of new car sales to individual drivers are electric vehicles. When it comes to combustion engine vehicles, particularly diesel, we’re well aware of the impact that particulate emissions can have on health. A 2018 article from the Guardian reported that diesel emissions was costing healthcare providers across the EU €72 billion per year. HT…Continue readingGoing fully electric could save more than 6,000 lives in the US by 2050
