For example, if you’re travelling alone or otherwise with only one additional person, a mini-cab is a better alternative than a minivan or perhaps a sedan.

A Chinese billionaire named Bruno Wu is building out a nearly $300 million crypto innovation hub in an unlikely place — Hartford, Connecticut.

Part of the plan includes a fintech college, according to documents reviewed by Business Insider.

A little-known Chinese financial technology company is making a big splash in Connecticut's state capital with a plan for a nearly $300 million crypto innovation hub.

Seven Stars Cloud, a company led by China-born media-mogul-turned-tech-entrepreneur billionaire Bruno Wu, announced plans in July to build out what is being dubbed Fintech Valley, a hub for the firm and others to collaborate on robotics, machine-learning, and crypto-related initiatives, in Hartford, Connecticut.

To that end, SSC is looking to seek out partnerships with nearby colleges to create an accredited entity specializing in fintech.

Wu said he selected Hartford as the location for his new venture because of its proximity to top colleges.

The man federal prosecutors say operated the Kelihos botnet has now pleaded guilty.

During a hearing in federal court in Hartford, Connecticut, on Wednesday, Peter Yuryevich Levashov admitted guilt in one count of causing intentional damage to a protected computer, one count of conspiracy, one count of wire fraud, and one count of aggravated identity theft.

The 38-year-old Russian’s botnet, which dated back to 2010, spanned more than 10,000 machines and was primarily used to send out spam, steal logins, distribute ransomware, and more.

Federal authorities shut it down in 2017.

"For over two decades, Peter Levashov operated botnets which enabled him to harvest personal information from infected computers, disseminate spam, and distribute malware used to facilitate multiple scams," said Assistant Attorney General Brian Benczkowski in a statement.

The Department of Justice said that Levashov "controlled and operated multiple botnets, including the Storm, Waledac, and Kelihos botnets to harvest personal information and means of identification (including email addresses, usernames and logins, and passwords) from infected computers."

Toyota bet big on hydrogen, launching its Mirai fuel-cell vehicle in lieu of a battery electric car, but it's running into a big problem: Not enough hydrogen fueling stations, especially on the East Coast.

While battery-electric charging stations are more and more ubiquitous, hydrogen refueling stations are few and far between.

The Mirai is currently only available in California, where there are only 28 retail hydrogen stations.

If you live on the East Coast, the number is a big fat zero.

The company hoped for 12 stations to be ready this summer but has amended that number to a mere 3 or 4 by the end of the year.

Currently there two stations under construction, one in Providence, Rhode Island and the other in Hartford, Connecticut.

Johnmichael O Hare, the head of the Hartford center, in the few months it has been open the technology has already assisted in hundreds of criminal cases that resulted in arrests.

Speaking of the help the center gives Hartford s police officers, O Hare says, It s huge.

But now that s changing, thanks to federal funding and money from drug bust forfeitures.

New centers are also in in planning for Bridgeport, Connecticut, Modesto, California, and Wilmington, North Carolina.

When facial recognition software is used with such systems, the American Civil Liberties Union and other groups raise questions about possible detection errors and the potential for invasion of privacy.

On Thursday, Homero Joshua Garza, also known as Josh Garza, has now been sentenced by a federal judge in Hartford, Connecticut, to 21 months in prison, three years of supervised release, and more than $9 million in restitution.

The news was first reported Thursday by CoinDesk.

In their sentencing memorandum filed before the hearing, prosecutors were blunt in their assessment of Garza, saying that he "lied to investors and customers and took their money" to the tune of $9 million in losses spread across thousands of people worldwide.

While GAW initially began as a legitimate company, it soon shifted to its own cloud-based mining service (ZenMiner).

When GAW was unable to fill demand for this service, Garza created something called "hashlets"—a slice of purported mining profits, that would "always make money."

As he could no longer pay earlier investors, Garza switched tactics again and introduced GAW's own altcoin, dubbed "PayCoin."

Amazon Key faced a bumpy start in late 2017, with plenty of folks mocking the program's concept of delivering packages inside people's homes.

But, a year and a half later and following a slight name change (it's now called Key by Amazon), the service is still kicking and even undergoing its first geographic expansion since launch.

Starting today, Amazon Prime customers in these 13 additional cities will be able to use Key: Charlotte, North Carolina; Columbus, Ohio; Fresno, California; Grand Rapids, Michigan; Hartford, Connecticut; Las Vegas; Norfolk, Virginia; Oklahoma City; Omaha, Nebraska; Rochester, New York; Stockton, California; Virginia Beach, Virginia; and Wilmington, Delaware.

Key is now available in 50 US cities, and the expansion includes all three parts of Key's service -- in-home, in-car and in-garage deliveries.

Also on Tuesday, Amazon launched its Key in-garage delivery service using Chamberlain's myQ-connected garage-door software.

Amazon wants to use Key to gain more control over people's front doors, allowing the company to create a new platform to provide customers more secure deliveries, as well as access to services like home cleaners, dog walkers and repairmen.

Real time crime centers have opened in the past year in Hartford; Wilmington, Delaware; and Springfield, Massachusetts.

They also tap into surveillance cameras at schools and businesses — after getting permission in a process agreed upon beforehand — to help police respond to active shooters and other crimes.

PITTSBURGH (August 20, 2018) ... A research collaboration led by the University of Pittsburgh's Swanson School of Engineering is one of 15 national projects to receive nearly $8.8 million in Department of Energy (DOE) funding for cost-shared research and development initiatives to develop innovative technologies that enhance fossil energy power systems.

The proposal, "Integrated Computational Materials and Mechanical Modeling for Additive Manufacturing of Alloys with Graded Structure Used in Fossil Fuel Power Plants," was awarded to Wei Xiong, PhD (PI), assistant professor, and Albert To, PhD (Co-PI), associate professor in the Swanson School's Department of Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science.

DOE's National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) in Pittsburgh will manage the selected projects.

The team will focus on utilizing additive manufacturing (AM), or 3D printing, to construct graded alloys use for Advanced Ultra-Super Critical (AUSC) power plants at a shorter lead time and at lower costs.

Utilizing the expertise in integrated computational materials engineering (ICME), the team at Pitt will develop a new modeling framework for wire-arc additive manufacturing at UTRC that integrates both materials modeling and mechanical simulation to design and manufacture superior alloy components for these power plants.

"Wire-arc AM is a promising technique to build complex parts for fossil fuel plants.

The competition in the VR space is only getting more competitive.

Facebook s Oculus Rift and HTC and Valve s Vive are battling it out in a bitter war, courting developers with exclusivity deals.

By starting PlayStation VR at $399, Sony hopes that the more casual consumer will be attracted to its headset, especially those that already own a PlayStation 4.

But because VR games are so much more demanding, it s looking like Sony will most probably announce an upgraded version of the PlayStation 4 later this year, currently code-named Neo.

Amazon is aggressively expanding its presence in the real-world retail market, with a plan to open dozens of new pop-up stores in US shopping malls over the next year, a source familiar with the matter told Business Insider.The miniature retail storefronts are a separate effort from the physical bookstore that Amazon opened in Seattle last year and are primarily designed to showcase and sell the company's hardware devices, particularly its Echo home speakers.The pop-up stores, which are spearheaded by Amazon's head of devices and services, reflect the company's growing drive to reach consumers directly through a variety of access points including retail storefronts, home delivery, and innovative devices.Just as Apple changed its relationship with customers through its sleek retail stores, Amazon is building out its vision for a new class retail business that weaves together a powerful assortment of online and physical components.Pop-up stores, typically 300- to 500-square-foot locations in the middle of shopping malls, carry an assortment of Amazon hardware — including the Kindle e-readers, Fire TV, and the Echo speakers — as well as accessories.

But the broader goal is to drive more traffic to Amazon's online store, as these devices make it easier to purchase items there.As of August, Amazon had 16 pop-up stores in the US — nearly three times as many as the six it had at the end of last year, according to the source.

That number is expected to exceed 30 this year and could go up to as many as 100 by next year, as new stores are popping up almost every week in shopping malls across the country, this person said.In fact, Amazon quietly launched a new site dedicated to its pop-up stores; it shows 21 now.

The stores are spread across 12 states, including New York and Texas, with California owning the most six .End of the test phaseAmazon is hiring a number of positions for "Amazon device pop-up stores" in multiple locations that have yet to be announced, including Miami, Florida, and West Hartford, Connecticut, according to job listings.In one of the job posts, Amazon says pop-up stores "have emerged from the test phase with a goal to expand and grow.

"Business Insider's source said Amazon seems to be putting a lot more resources in its pop-up store expansion and that it could potentially evolve into other forms as well, such as a brick-and-mortar space similar to an Apple Store.
