Honeywell Home’s T9 smart thermostat gets HomeKit support, finally
The , Resideoâs first consumer thermostat to support remote temperature sensors, has finally brought a long-promised feature to its users: HomeKit.

Animal Crossing’s new turnip price tracker doesn’t tell you the most important thing
Nintendo quietly added a turnip price tracker for Animal Crossing: New Horizons to the Nintendo Switch Online app, but itâs not as useful as I was hoping. Disappointingly, the tracker doesnât show the current turnip price on your island. Instead, it lists historical prices over the past week.
To see the tracker, which is cleverly dubbed the Turnip Tracker, youâll need to be a Nintendo Switch Online subscriber. If you are, open the Nintendo Switch Online app, tap the Animal Crossing: New Horizons icon, tap the âIsland Newspaperâ on the list of NookLink apps, and scroll down to the bottom.
Below is an image of what the tracker looks like on my iPhone 12 Mini, taken as I was writing this article. You can see itâs missing the current price...

The FBI has put out a PSA about an interesting crypto scam
The FBI is involving cryptocurrency ATMs. A con artist convinces a person to put cash into a cryptocurrency ATM and send the purchased coins to the scammer using an address stored in a QR code (). While the actual scamming is relatively low-tech, itâs an interesting misuse of technology and shows how criminals are using crypto to âimproveâ on old methods.
As the agency describes it, the scammer will contact their victim and somehow convince them that they need to send money, either with promises of love, further riches, or by impersonating an actual institution like a bank or utility company. After the mark is convinced, the scammer will have them get cash (sometimes out of investment or...

Brembo’s ‘intelligent’ brake system could apply pressure to each wheel individually
High-end Italian brake manufacturer Brembo in October its plan to release Sensify, an AI-enhanced braking system that promises both âdriving pleasure and total safetyâ when it rolls out via an unnamed manufacturer in 2024. Going beyond anti-lock brakes, traction, and stability control, it replaces hydraulic controls with electronic ones for design flexibility and, potentially, more precise control.
Incorporating AI into vehicles isnât new, as algorithms control playlists, maps, driver assistance, and even âself-drivingâ to various degrees. AI-based brake systems, however, are enough to raise eyebrows about how exactly they will work or enhance safety.

iPhone 13 DIY screen replacements break Face ID unless you can microsolder
Appleâs new iPhone 13 lineup might pack a lot of new features, but they now have a major restriction that makes it much harder for independent repair shops to replace broken screens. If you try to swap the screen, Face ID just wonât work â that is, unless you know how to microsolder and can successfully move a tiny microcontroller from the original screen to a new one, as detailed .

Uber prices are still way up, so the company is bringing back carpooling

New York City’s mayor-elect says he wants to be paid in Bitcoin
New York Cityâs mayor-elect Eric Adams Thursday that he wants his first three city paychecks paid in Bitcoin, in a bid to show up the mayor of Miami and indicate his hopes that New York will be a place where the cryptocurrency industry is welcome.
To put it lightly, the feasibility of Adams actually getting paid in Bitcoin seems dicey. (Is the cityâs payroll even set up for that? How will this work with the fluctuating price of Bitcoin? My goodness, whatâs the tax situation going to be like?) Whether it actually happens or not, though, heâs sending a clear message about his intended plans as a mayor â you probably wouldnât say something like that if youâre going to ignore cryptocurrency and Bitcoin completely.

And now, Pillonel has published a far more detailed video showing just how he managed to pull off the hack, with technical details, CNC instructions, and information on the custom PCB that he designed for anyone brave enough to try and put together a similar hack.

Ford’s selling electric crate motors based on the one in the Mach-E
Ford has an electric crate motor based on the one that powers the GT version of the Mustang Mach-E. The âEluminator e-crate motorâ makes 281 horsepower, 317 pound-feet of torque, and costs $3,900.
The motor is just the first in a series of EV building blocks Ford says it plans to sell, like battery systems, motor controllers, and inverters, all of which would make it easier to retrofit internal combustion engine vehicles with all-electric drivetrains. Right now, those types of conversions are still mostly limited to specialty shops and hobbyists who often cobble together parts from all sorts of random places in the supply chain.
To promote the new motor, Ford built a one-off all-electric version of a 1978...

âItâll be expensive for us in the short term, but itâs the right prioritization for our customers and partners,â Amazon CEO Andy Jassy said today in .
