Starlink Mini Brings Internet To Backpackers

Starlink has launched the Starlink Mini, a compact, laptop-sized dish designed for backpackers and adventurers.

This DC-powered device includes a built-in Wi-Fi router and delivers internet speeds over 100Mbps while consuming just 20-40W of power — making it operable for several hours using a standard USB power bank.

Priced at $599, it costs $100 more than the standard dish, with an additional $30 per month for the Mini Roam service.
 

Choosing The Right Sounds For EVs

Automakers have been focused on creating futuristic sounds for electric vehicles (EVs) to alert pedestrians at low speeds, but a recent survey of 400 adults in the US suggests that people prefer more familiar, non-tonal sounds resembling traditional car noises.

Of course, automakers are pretty butthurt about this considering they’ve invested in high-profile sound design projects.

Anthropic Has Fast New AI Model

Anthropic has introduced its latest AI model, Claude 3.5 Sonnet, which promises to outperform competitors like OpenAI’s GPT-4o and Google’s Gemini 1.5 across various tasks.

Claude 3.5 Sonnet is twice as fast as its predecessor and excels in writing code, managing workflows, interpreting charts, and transcribing text from images.

Alongside the new model, Anthropic is launching a feature called Artifacts, allowing users to interact directly with the AI-generated content within the app — it’s available now on the web and iOS.
