When Hisense unveiled the L5-series ultra-short-throw projector at CES 2020, the $5,000 price seemed a bit expensive compared to the competition. However, the company has announced that it’s finally going on sale at a lower $4,000 price and it includes a 100-…

The projector sits just 11 inches from the wall, so you can place it on a low piece of furniture with no need for a ceiling mount. It has built-in 30 watt speakers and uses dbx-TV for surround-like sound. Finally, Hisense has wisely chosen to include Android TV and Google Assistant, rather than building its own wonky TV app like Optoma did with its otherwise excellent laser projector. It’s also a smart move to include a screen, as sourcing one separately from the projector can be a pain. As I learned, you really need a proper ALR screen to get the most out of an ultra-short-throw projector (your wall won’t really cut it), and good models can cost $500 or more. The L5 Series is now available at Amazon, BeachCamera.com and Vanns.com for $3,999.

By James Ball Michelle DUrbano IN JANUARY 1989, two engineers Cisco’s Kirk Lougheed and IBM’s Yakov Rekhter sat down in the cafeteria at a technology conference in Austin, Texas. The two men were looking to work out a short-term fix to help address problems with the way data flowed across the fledgling internet, which at the time connected about 100,000 computers across the world. In the spirit of finding a fudge, they scribbled a new protocol across either two or three napkins. (They can’t recall how many and didn’t keep the originals.) This protocol was adopted as the new standard for …

‘One of them actually said, your symptoms are probably not to do with your heart because you’re young and you’re female. Even though my father had a heart condition,’ says woman

Women are forced to wait more than five times longer than men for a heart failure diagnosis, a new study has found. Researchers discovered women are 96 per cent more likely to get an incorrect diagnosis of heart failure than men attributing sharp disparities to such problems being wrongly viewed as a mans disease. The study, conducted by leading heart failure charity the Pumping Marvellous Foundation, found men said they waited an average of just over three and a half weeks to get a formal diagnosis after their first GP visit, but women waited just over 20 weeks instead.
