Global Power Tool Accessories Market Outlook and Forecasts to 2025 – Impact of COVID-19

The “Power Tool Accessories – Global Outlook and Forecast 2020-2025” report has been added to’s offering.

The power tools accessories market by revenue is expected to grow at a CAGR of over 6% during the period 2019-2025.

The global power tool accessories market is expected to witness growth after the post-2020. Rapid industrialization and increasing applications in households and commercial sectors are primarily driving the power tool accessories set. These sets are primarily used in industries such as automobile, aerospace, construction, electronics, and shipbuilding. The growth in the use and demand for Li-ion batteries along with the rise in infrastructural developments have surged the demand for cordless power tools and batteries. The industrial sector is the largest end-user followed by commercial and residential segments.

The spread of the COVID-19 pandemic across the globe in early 2020 has deeply plummeted the demand from end-user industries, especially from construction, automotive, and

Near-optimal chip-based photon source developed for quantum computing

Researchers have developed a new CMOS-compatible silicon photonics photon source that satisfies all the requirements necessary for large-scale photonic quantum computing. The research represents a significant step toward mass-manufacturable ideal single photon sources.

There is a widespread effort to develop chip-based quantum computers because the mature CMOS fabrication processes used to make today’s computer chips could greatly lower the cost of large-scale quantum information processing. Although researchers have demonstrated many of the components needed to make quantum computers in silicon chips, an on-chip single photon-source has proven challenging because of the stringent demand to create high-quality photons.

Stefano Paesani from the University of Bristol in the UK will present the new research at the all-virtual OSA Frontiers in Optics and Laser Science APS/DLS (FiO + LS) conference to be held 14—17 September.

“By demonstrating low-noise photon sources simultaneously meeting all requirements for large-scale photonic quantum computers, we have overcome a

Chargeasap Flash: Is this the future of portable smartphone charging?

Regular readers will know that I like power banks. A lot. I have quite a few, ranging from big and bulky and packed with lots of features, to small and subtle and can be slipped into a pocket. But it’s rare that a power bank brings something different to the table.

The Chargeasap Flash changes that.

A lot of people have been asking about the Flash 2.0, and I’ve finally got my hands on one and have been testing it.

Externally, the Flash 2.0 looks pretty much like any other 20,000mAh power bank. It’s a big, chunky slab packed with batteries and electronics, and has USB ports to allow you to plug cables into to charge gadgets.

But there’s a difference.

Inside the power bank are 21700 Panasonic lithium polymer graphene composite battery cells — the packaging refers to them as Tesla batteries, but the website doesn’t — and these

Sarasota’s Roper Technologies closes $5.3 billion purchase of Vertafore

LAKEWOOD RANCH — Roper Technologies Inc. has closed its largest acquisition, paying $5.35 billion for an insurance software vendor.

Roper, a diversified tech company with executive headquarters in Lakewood Ranch, paid cash for Vertafore.

Denver, Colorado-based Vertafore’s cloud-based software provides management, compliance, workflow and data solutions to more than 20,000 agencies and 1,000 carriers in the property and casualty insurance industry.

Roper said it funded the transaction with cash on hand, its revolving credit facility and new debt.

This week Roper completed a public offering of $2.7 billion worth senior notes to finance the deal.

“Vertafore is a fantastic business characterized by clear leadership in its niche market, a strong management team, high customer retention and a long track record of consistent revenue and cash flow growth,” Roper president/CEO Neil Hunn said in announcing the purchase last month.

Vertafore will contribute about $590 million in revenue and $290 million in

The 5 best tablets under $200

As technology advances, the line between laptops and tablets becomes more and more blurred. On the bright side, that means impressive capabilities and more advanced tech for your compact tablet — but on the not-so-bright side, that usually means a more expensive price tag. The best tablets under $200 can be as powerful and reliable as some of the $800 models; you just need to consider the size, processor, memory, and RAM before making your purchases.

  • Display size: This is the size of the screen, measured diagonally in inches from opposite corners. Bigger screens often make it easier to see while you’re watching movies or surfing the web, but smaller screens are better for travel and easier to hold.
  • Processor: This is a tiny chip that lives in your tablet and responds to basic instructions. You don’t need to know everything about processors to make a good purchase;

X50 Pro-like design and cameras, but at a much affordable price

a close up of a computer: Vivo X50 review

Vivo X50 review

Vivo’s not been extremely busy over the last few months. Compared to some of its competitors, the company hasn’t launched too many devices since the country has stepped out of the coronavirus induced lockdowns. But while it has been lacking in the numbers game, this period has seen the company switch focus from the numbers game, and channel its energies towards launching some really interesting products.

Part of this list are the Vivo X50 and X50 Pro. While we’ve reviewed the latter already, we now have the more modest X50 with us, which despite bringing much of the same in terms of hardware and features, offers a slightly different experience, albeit at a more affordable price point than the X50 Pro.

So let’s dive straight into the review of the Vivo X50 to find out if the phone is for you.

The Canon XF705 is a camcorder with the future in mind

In this part of our Canon XF705 review we take a look at what this future-minded camcorder is like to use out in the field as well as take a look at picture quality.

Read part 1 of this review here.

In this final part of of review I wanted to put the camera through its paces with consideration to the types of use it might be put to. I didn’t have the camera for a huge amount of time, so I have focussed on the areas that I would consider important to news gathering, documentary, and other environments where getting the shot is more important than being Quentin Tarantino.

Start-up time and power on

As people who read my reviews know, I like to take a note of how long a camera takes to power on. The shorter the better, especially for a camera being used for news operation.

Feds confirm they will stop buying used computers

Despite hearing objections from refurbished equipment dealers, the U.S. General Services Administration will finalize its decision to halt government purchases of used and refurbished computers.

A prime acquisition arm for the government, the GSA confirmed it will eliminate the product category – or special item number (SIN) – through which it signs contracts for purchases of used and refurbished computer equipment. The change goes into effect Sept. 30, 2020.

In addition to federal agencies, local and state governments can also purchase used equipment through the GSA supplier contracts.

GSA first publicized its intentions last summer, arguing that purchasing used or refurbished computers presented supply chain risks that could lead the U.S. to purchase counterfeit goods or make it vulnerable to spying.

In response, a number of industry comments, including from the
