DARPA's XS-1 spacecraft could hit speeds of Mach 10

“Star Wars: The Force Awakens” buzz has already kicked off, but in the real world, the US military has taken a step closer to making advanced spacecraft a reality. The XS-1 is airplane-like space vehicle that can fly to space and rapidly launch small satellites, space weapons, and more into orbit at the edge of Earth’s atmosphere. This space plane can then return, land, get refueled, and take onboard another delivery, before it blasts off again.

The $120 Windows 8 tablet finally emerges at IFA 2014: Can Microsoft take on Android?

Toshiba Encore Mini, cheap Windows 8 tablet
IFA 2014 kicked off in Berlin this morning, and already we’re seeing an interesting trend emerge: Those cheap-and-cheerful small-screen Windows 8 tablets that Microsoft promised back in April are finally arriving. Both Toshiba and Acer have announced their offerings (priced at $120 and $150 respectively), and the usual OEM suspects (Dell, HP, etc.) should unveil their offerings over the next couple of days. These tablets will all be fairly low-spec devices with either a 7- or 8-inch screen, and most of them will be powered by an Intel Atom (Bay Trail) SoC. This means you can now get a full Windows 8.1 device for just $120 — a proposition so juicy that Microsoft hopes it can entice customers away from cheap Android tablets and into the Windows camp.
