- Business Insider 02:00July 15, 2020With no mandate to shut down, even if employees get sick, one expert calls Silicon Valley's reopening 'a very easy route of transmission' (FB, GOOGL, GOOG, AAPL, AMZN)Katie Canales/Business Insider Public health experts warn that an office is an inherently risky environment for spreading COVID-19.
But major tech companies like Apple and Facebook are starting to send some employees back to the office, even as coronavirus cases in much of the country, including in California, continue to rise.
How a workplace handles COVID-19 in its ranks is often left up to the company. There is little mandate from federal or state governments in how companies should deal with and communicate infections to employees, though there are guidelines.
Federal and local health departments recommend employers notify workers who come in contact with an infected person and advise sick and potentially sick employees to stay home. There are no obligations to close offices or tell employees of a confirmed COVID-19 case among staff, should one happen.
With so much of the response left up to businesses, the question becomes: What will your company do if someone gets sick?
Melissa Perry, a public health researcher at George Washington University's Milken Institute School of Public Health, advises employers to be flexible about reopening and to do so on a trial basis. "It makes no sense to get entrenched in the decision to return no matter what, because that's putting people in greater risk," she told Business Insider.
Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. When tech's long-dormant offices begin to reopen their doors to employees, life will look significantly different. Gone will be the heaping self-serve buffets, the on-site massages, and the access to gyms and sleep pods. In their place will be boxed lunches, spaced-out desks, and temperature checks.
Some companies, like Apple and Facebook, have already begun sending a limited number of employees back, allowing the rest of their workforces to continue working at home.See the rest of the story at Business InsiderNOW WATCH: Pathologists debunk 13 coronavirus mythsSee Also:This intense-looking humanoid robot is performing coronavirus tests in Egypt — here's how it worksAmazon's new grocery store will have a smart shopping cart that lets you skip the checkout lineWhat it's like when one of your oldest friends becomes a conspiracy theoristSEE ALSO: How tech companies from Google to Salesforce are planning to reopen offices and bring employees back to work in the wake of the coronavirus crisis

Though citizens of the World State believe they're living in a utopia, Huxley's characters rely on a drug called soma to maintain happiness and struggle to rise above their predetermined status in society. Their utopia is further called into question when World State citizen Bernard Marx encounters a young man raised in the outside world. The show stars Alden Ehrenreich, Jessica Brown Findlay, and Harry Lloyd.

Visit Business Insider's Tech Reference library for more stories. PowerPoint is an incredibly useful tool for giving presentations. With the click of a button, you can control how fast or slow you want the slides to progress, and when other extras like music or animation come in.
However, if it is not your intention to give your presentation live and in person, this fact can be more of a hindrance than a help. If you intended, for example, to email it to your coworkers, or to post it online, it might be more helpful to simply have your PowerPoint be a video that people can press play on and simply sit back and watch.See the rest of the story at Business InsiderNOW WATCH: Why electric planes haven't taken off yetSee Also:How to change your Microsoft PowerPoint slideshow orientation to portrait modeHow to add page numbers to your PowerPoint slides to organize your presentationHow to create a custom PowerPoint template to use or share with othersSEE ALSO: The best home projectors you can buy

- Business Insider 22:57July 14, 2020This intense-looking humanoid robot is performing coronavirus tests in Egypt — here's how it worksAn Egyptian mechanical engineer created a robot that can test patients for COVID-19.
The robot is remote-controlled by a health professional, reducing the risk of transmission.
Robots have been used in fighting the coronavirus around the world.
Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. A robot that looks straight out of the uncanny valley is performing coronavirus tests in Egypt.
Twenty-six-year-old mechanical engineer Mahmoud El Komy created remote-controlled robot is being used in Cairo, Egypt to collect samples for testing.
Measures like this robot could reduce the risk of transmission for medical providers, who have to get very close to people who potentially have infectious diseases.
Robots have increasingly been put to use since COVID-19 spread around the world. A team of doctors and researchers in Korea recently developed a remote-controlled robot that can take nasal swabs for COVID-19 tests.
In Boston, Spot robots were used to screen patients remotely, using iPads so doctors could talk to and visually assess them. In India and other countries, robots have been tasked with screening patients using thermal temperature guns, picking out people with fevers as potential COVID-19 patients.26-year-old mechanical engineer Mahmoud El Komy spent more than a month developing this remote-controlled robot.

The current prototype, El Komy's second, can take temperatures, collect mouth swabs for testing, and recognize when people aren't wearing masks.
The swab used by the robot is the same PCR diagnostic test used in nasal swabs, though the robot collects them from the throat, which is also acceptable.

- Business Insider 22:57July 14, 2020The best digital-to-analog convertersA digital-to-analog converter (DAC) is a useful tool for any music lover who wants to play digital audio files in high quality.
This gadget refines the processing of digital to analog audio transformations to improve the sound produced by smartphones, computers, and other connected devices.
The Chord Mojo is the ultimate DAC thanks to its studio quality sound, simple interface, and versatile connections.
Read more: Everything you need to know about HD audio and how it can enhance your music-streaming experience A digital-to-analog converter, or DAC, takes your digital audio content and transforms it into analog so that your sound system can amplify and play it. It's through this process that you're actually able to listen to audio stored in a digital file format, like MP3, WAV, or FLAC.
Virtually all music played through a digital device, including the tracks you stream on music services like Spotify and Amazon Music, needs to be converted to analog in order to be heard through a pair of headphones or speakers. Different digital sound formats have different qualities and specs, but they all store music as bits of data. A DAC works as an interpreter that takes these digitally stored recordings and translates them back into an analog signal. This is what you ultimately hear from your output source.
It's actually a chip that conducts this whole process, and this chip can be found in almost every device that has the ability to play music. It's in your phone, your computer, and your TV. The question is, if a DAC chip is already included in all of your devices, why bother to buy a separate one?
Well, the answer comes down to quality. DACs vary in performance, and in most cases, the ones you find integrated in phones, computers, and TVs are not of the best quality. If you really want to enhance the way you experience music, having an external DAC is an imperative, as a high-end DAC will make your music sound as close to its original analog recording as possible. If you own good headphones or speakers and feel that you're not getting the sound you hoped to get, a DAC is your best bet for unlocking the full potential of your device.
There are DACs designed for various needs in several sizes, with some models geared primarily toward headphones and others suited for larger hi-fi setups. As someone who has a background working for an AV/IT installation company, there are several primary factors I take into account when selecting a DAC, including audio quality, compatibility, and user experience. For more detailed information about all of the features you should look out for when purchasing a DAC, be sure to read our additional buying advice.
After deciding what type of DAC is best for your needs, there are plenty of models to choose from. To help narrow the field, we've picked the best DACs you can buy for a variety of audio needs and budgets.
Here are our top picks for the best DACs: Best DAC overall: Chord Electronics Mojo
Best desktop DAC: Cambridge Audio DacMagic Plus
Best portable Bluetooth DAC: iFi xDSD
Best USB DAC: AudioQuest Dragonfly Cobalt
Best budget DAC: FiiO K3 Updated on 7/14/2020 by Steven Cohen: We replaced the FiiO E10K with the FiiO K3 as our pick for best budget DAC and explained why. Added links to related articles. The best DAC overall
With its straightforward interface, practical design, and amazing sound quality, the Chord Electronics Mojo offers everything you could want from a DAC.
When it comes to making DACs, Chord Electronics is one of the frontrunners of the industry. Among the company's many exceptional products is the Mojo, which stands out thanks to the convenience it offers. What makes this item so brilliant is its user-friendly interface and the overall sound experience it delivers. This is also probably the best DAC you can still realistically carry around.
First off, for a portable DAC, this device provides its users with an exceptional sound. You will not only notice the difference this DAC makes when you're not using it, but also when you compare the sound to that of another DAC in this same price range. Its high-end performance lives up to the standards promised by Chord products. Alongside being a DAC, the Mojo also packs an amplifier that can boost audio output for louder playback.
Another quality that separates this DAC is its overall convenience. While some DACs may be too complicated for people who are not experienced around audio equipment, the Mojo is very straightforward. It's a plug and play device that is compatible with all operating systems and outputs. When turned off, it remembers all your last saved settings, and it can play almost any audio file (up to DSD 256) as it has a wide sample rate range (32kHz to 768kHz).
When you look at the Mojo, the first thing that catches the eye are the three huge buttons attached to the matte black body of the device. These buttons stand for power and volume control and also have LED lights inside that change color depending on the file's audio resolution.
Moreover, the device has a micro USB, Coaxial, and Optical input, along with two 3.5mm analog outputs, which means that you can plug two headphones in at the same time. However, the Mojo doesn't support wireless connectivity. The Mojo works on battery power and the life of the battery is rated for around eight hours. It can be fully recharged in four hours using a micro USB cable.
The Chord Mojo is great whether you want to use it on the go with your smartphone or want to plug it in to your home computer. It's easy to use and delivers studio quality audio. It's without a doubt the best sounding DAC for its price and size, which makes it a popular product among audiophiles.
Pros: Amazing sound quality, combined DAC and amp, easy-to-use interface, extensive compatibility, two headphone inputs that can work simultaneously, up to 768kHz sample rate
Cons: Doesn't work while charging, doesn't support wireless input, is portable but not small enough to carry in your pocket, gets warm when charging
The best desktop DAC
If you need a DAC for your speaker system, the DacMagic Plus is probably the best device for you with its wide selection of connectivity options.
Cambridge Audio is another leading brand in the audio world, and the DacMagic Plus lives up to the quality the company is known for. Though this product may have an old-school appearance with a square shape and bulky design, there is nothing archaic about the functions and capabilities of this DAC. It even has a wireless connectivity feature which allows your phone or tablet to connect through Bluetooth for high quality music streaming.
Unlike the more compact DAC models on our list, which are primarily geared toward headphones, the DacMagic Plus is an excellent DAC to incorporate in a hi-fi stereo audio system. It offers a generous selection of connection options both in the input and output side. It has several digital inputs: an asynchronous low-jitter USB port, two digital coax ports, and two optical inputs. As for the output options, alongside the standard ports, it provides you with a balanced XLR and a single ended RCA. It's a versatile device that will be able to connect with virtually any speaker system without any compatibility issues or add-on adapters. The DAC is also able to support digital music of virtually any format and can upsample sources to 24-bit/384kHz.
As one would expect from a dedicated desktop DAC, the DacMagic Plus is one of the largest DAC models on our list. Despite how it looks, though, it's actually pretty light and can be easily lifted. The bigger size also helps to enable strong performance, as this device is able to significantly improve the quality of any audio file. As for the interface, it's easy to use with one big volume knob and three buttons. On the downside, the DAC doesn't have a volume display on it and it doesn't come with a remote control.
At this price range, the DacMagic Plus is the best high quality desktop DAC you can buy. With a variety of connection options and the ability to work with all major music formats, the DacMagic Plus is a reliable and accommodating device to have in your audio setup.
Pros: Competitive price for a desktop DAC, a lot of connectivity options, Bluetooth support, able to accommodate a lot of devices
Cons: Large size, no volume display, no remote control
The best portable Bluetooth DAC If you want to buy a portable DAC with Bluetooth support, the iFi xDSD is one of the most cutting-edge products you can find.
The iFi xDSD is an amazing pocket-size portable DAC that offers both quality and functionality. Don't let the small size of this device fool you, because this DAC is packed with a variety of special features, including a built-in amplifier, a high quality Bluetooth streaming receiver, a bass correction system, and iFi's 3D+ immersive soundstage system. The sound it produces is detailed and clear which makes it a solid choice for enjoying high resolution audio.
This device also provides you with more variety in sound compared to other portable DACs because it enables you to have control over a selection of modes that can be used to fine-tune your music. Most of the other portable DACs offer only one default setting, without much customization. This quality makes the DAC a very enjoyable device in the hands of a person who knows his way around audio equipment. The opposite can be said for people who are not very well-versed with audio specs, however, so some buyers might find this model to be too complicated.
The iFi xDSD also stands out from the batch with its stylish design. The body of the device has an elegant, curvy metal frame, and there's a huge analog volume control wheel located on the top center of the unit. The DAC also comes equipped with all the standard inputs and outputs for a model of this type. It's a perfect device for portable use with headphones as it's compact and ergonomic. It even comes with a Velcro strap to attach to the back of your phone. It runs off its own internal lithium battery that lasts up to 10 hours and can be recharged using a micro USB charger. The device can support up to 32-Bit/768kHz via USB with DSD512 support.
The iFi xDSD is one of the most advanced portable DACs you can get. It provides you with many additional features that you don't see in other DACs, it delivers high resolution audio over wired connections, and it offers aptX-enabled streaming music through Bluetooth. Compared to other similar models, it offers more control over your audio settings which makes it unique.
Pros: A lot of advanced modes to fine-tune your audio, high quality Bluetooth streaming, stylish design and small size for convenient portability
Cons: Can be too complicated for some users, it takes time to get used to its controls

- Business Insider 20:58July 14, 2020Amazon's upcoming supermarket could be the first step in an ambitious plan to change the way we grocery shop — here's what we know about it so far (AMZN)Business Insider Amazon is opening a new grocery store in California this year that would be separate from Whole Foods, the company confirmed in late 2019.
The confirmation comes after The New York Times reported that Amazon is looking into creating a new grocery chain that would combine the aspects of online and traditional shopping.
The new store opening next year will also be separate from Amazon Go, the company's grab-and-go cashier-free convenience stores.
Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. Amazon is making an even bigger leap into the grocery business by opening a new supermarket later this year.
The tech giant confirmed such plans in late 2019 after CNET's Ben Fox Rubin spotted a job listing for a management role at the store.
Details on Amazon's ambitions in the grocery space are scarce. But the new store opening in the Woodland Hills area of California would be separate from Whole Foods, which Amazon acquired for $13.7 billion in 2017.
The company also temporarily opened the store as an online-only shop for fulfilling grocery deliveries to expand its offerings in the early days of the coronavirus pandemic back in April.
Previous reports have shed light on Amazon's plans to expand its presence in the grocery market beyond Whole Foods.
The New York Times' Karen Weise reported in July 2019 that Amazon was brainstorming a new type of grocery store that would combine traditional shopping with online pickup. The Wall Street Journal also reported last year that Amazon was planning to open dozens of grocery stores in the United States, with the first store potentially opening in Los Angeles by the end of the year.
Here's a look at what we know about Amazon's grocery plans so far based on these reports.The first store will launch this year, and others could soon follow.
Amazon's first new grocery store will open this year in Woodland Hills, California, although it's unclear precisely when it will debut. But it could be one of several grocery stores Amazon is planning to open.
The Journal reported in March 2019 that the company is planning to open dozens of stores in several cities in the United States, noting that the first store would open in Los Angeles.
The online retail giant has also reportedly signed leases for two separate locations, according to The Journal, and discussions are said to be in place for stores in Seattle, San Francisco, Chicago, Washington D.C., and Philadelphia.
The new grocery store won't be like Amazon Go, the company's cashier-less convenience stores.
The new grocery story opening in Woodland Hills won't be an Amazon Go location, which allows customers to purchase products through a smartphone app without having to pay at a checkout counter. This new store, rather, will have a conventional checkout experience.
But it will have smart shopping carts called Dash Carts that allow you to bypass the checkout line. Amazon's Woodland Hills grocery store will have smart shopping carts that can detect which items you place in the cart and automatically charge your Amazon account as you leave.
The cart won't be able to handle heavy shopping trips, however, as Amazon says it's suited for holding one or two bags of groceries.
Each cart will also have a touch screen for viewing your Alexa shopping list and your subtotal as you shop.

- Business Insider 20:51July 14, 2020The best thermostatsA high-quality thermostat is easy to install, works with a broad range of heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems, has an intuitive interface, and can help save you hundreds of dollars in energy costs.
The thermostats we recommend have a track record of accurate performance, high-contrast displays that are easy-to-read, and effortless operation.
The Google Nest Thermostat E is our top pick because it's made by one of the most trusted names in the industry, has an attractive appearance, and is supported by a feature-rich app. A thermostat lets you control a home's climate by connecting it to the heating and/or cooling systems. Whether it's an analog slider or digital push buttons, a thermostat allows you to adjust the temperature for heat and/or cooling.
Thermostats are, from a user's standpoint, relatively simple, straightforward instruments. To increase or decrease the temperature of a room, you simply turn a dial or move a slider to a temperature range or basic settings for cool, hot, or off.
But they can also be complex. Many thermostats today are smarter and actually require little interaction from our part. Some can be programmed to operate on a schedule, while more advanced, "smart" thermostats can be controlled from a smartphone or even learn your household's daily habits and adjust the temperature automatically. These advanced thermostats let you tune into the exact temperature. Yes, there is a big difference between 65 and 70 degrees Fahrenheit — just ask any dad.
For our guide, we looked at three types of thermostats: non-programmable, programmable, and smart. For a full breakdown of the differences between them and what else we looked for when determining our picks, you'll find a full explainer at the end of the guide.
Here are the best thermostats: Best overall: Google Nest Thermostat E
Best non-programmable: Honeywell Digital Non-Programmable Thermostat
Best with Alexa: Ecobee SmartThermostat with Voice Control
Best smart thermostat on a budget: Emerson Sensi Wi-Fi Smart Thermostat
Best (non-smart) programmable: Orbit Clear Comfort Programmable Thermostat Updated on 7/14/2020 to edit the prices, titles, links, and remove references and ratings from third-party sites, because we've found them to be unreliable in the past. The best overall
The Google Nest Thermostat E has an impressive set of high-end features and a mid-range price tag.
The Thermostat E (T4000ES) is Google Nest's affordable offering but it offers much of the same outstanding functionality as the Learning Thermostat, Google Nest's flagship and pricier model.
Performance-wise, the Thermostat E operates like the Learning Thermostat. For the lower price, you don't get color options (it comes in just white), it's made out of plastic instead of metal, it has a lower resolution display that isn't sharp (it's harder to read, especially from a distance), and it's compatible with 85% of HVAC systems (compared to 95% for the Learning Thermostat). You also can't pull up the time or weather on the display, as you can on the higher-end model.
However, as long as your HVAC system is compatible and you can do without the frills, the Thermostat E offers the same great smart functions as its sibling including remote control, auto temperature adjustment, and the ability to learn your household habits and adjust the climate accordingly. We also don't think the white plastic looks bad; in fact, subjectively, we think it's sleek-looking.
All you need to control your home's HVAC system is the feature-rich Nest App. From installation to making adjustments while in bed or out of town, the app makes it easy to save energy. To simply turn the temperature up or down, you can also just turn the dial on the unit itself.
In the app, you can set a simple schedule that adjusts the temperature based on your comfort and habits. The thermostat will adjust to a more energy-saving temp when you leave. The app's energy history provides useful information about your energy use and what you can do to save money. And, Nest's unique learning ability makes adjustments based on your preferences.
Pros: Attractive appearance, easy to install, learns your preferences and adapts, adjusts the temperature based on whether you're home or away, outstanding app
Cons: Display can be hard to read, limited compatibility with non-Nest smart home devices
The best non-programmable
If you don't need the bells and whistles of a smart thermostat, save yourself hundreds of dollars with the Honeywell Digital Non-Programmable Thermostat.
While we are big fans of smart thermostats and believe they pay for themselves in energy savings, you might prefer to avoid the hassle of using an app or programming your thermostat. For an affordable, barebones workhorse, the Honeywell Digital Non-Programmable Thermostat (RTH111B1016/E1) should get the job done.
The Honeywell Digital Non-Programmable Thermostat is simple to use. Just two buttons let you adjust the setpoint and there are just two switches, one for heating and cooling and another for turning the fan on or setting it auto. That's it. Installation is equally simple, and because it doesn't have any complexity, it should be reliable.
One drawback is that the Honeywell Digital Non-Programmable Thermostat does not work with electric baseboard or heat pump systems.
Pros: Easy to read display, affordable, intuitive operation, simple installation, maintains temperature if the power goes out, great for rental properties
Cons: Not programmable, incompatible with electric baseboard or heat pump systems
The best with Alexa
The Ecobee SmartThermostat with Voice Control not only has an outstanding app and intuitive programming, but it also has built-in Alexa and a speaker with good sound quality.
What sets the Ecobee SmartThermostat with Voice Control apart from other smart thermostats is the built-in smart speaker. Essentially, it's a hybrid device that combines a thermostat with Amazon's Alexa smart assistant for voice calling, messaging, music streaming, and more.
The SmartThermostat comes with a sensor that measures temperature readings wherever it is installed. The thermostat then adjusts the heating and cooling based on the reading and whether the room is occupied. You can purchase additional sensors, too.
Though I had some initial trouble getting the SmartSensors to connect — a bug that Ecobee has since fixed — I've found they are accurate and do a great job of regulating the heat in my large, drafty house. After a little tinkering, the temp controls are fully-automated; I rarely need to make adjustments to the schedule.
The voice control is a nice luxury, but for me, it's more of a novelty. It's fun to tell the SmartThermostat to communicate to a robotic vacuum that I want it to start cleaning. I'm more appreciative of the speaker, though. My thermostat is located in the dining room, and it's great for background music during dinner.
Pros: Integrates into the most popular smart home system, user-friendly app, speakers that actually sound decent, built-in Alexa, dual-band WiFi
Cons: Trouble connecting SmartSensors, not compatible with all HVAC systems

- Business Insider 20:13July 14, 2020In a rare move from Apple, the new iPhone 12 could be cheaper than most other 5G phones (AAPL)Apple could release a 5G version of the iPhone 12 that costs less than $1,000, says Wedbush Securities analyst Daniel Ives.
That's significant because 5G smartphones tend to be more expensive than standard models, with flagship models costing around $1,000.
Some smartphone makers like OnePlus, TCL, and Samsung are already beginning to release cheaper 5G smartphones.
But a decision by Apple launch a lower-cost 5G iPhone would mark the first high-profile device to debut with 5G at an affordable price.
Apple has influenced the industry before when it comes to shifts like eliminating the headphone jack, and it could similarly set a precedent for others to follow with the iPhone 12.
The launch of a 5G iPhone would also mean that millions of people may potentially have 5G phones by the end of the year, possibly giving carriers more incentive to further build out their networks.
Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. When Apple's iPhone 12 launches later this year, you may not have to spend upwards of $1,000 to buy a model that's works on 5G networks, according to Wedbush Securities analyst Daniel Ives.
If his predictions turn out to be accurate, the iPhone 12 launch could mark a critical turning point in the industry, potentially ending the trend of tech companies charging a premium on smartphones equipped to handle next-generation wireless networks.See the rest of the story at Business InsiderNOW WATCH: Why Pikes Peak is the most dangerous racetrack in AmericaSee Also:You may now be eligible for a $25 settlement from Apple if your iPhone experienced issues due to 'batterygate'The best Apple deals for July 2020 — save $60 off Apple's AirPods with a wireless charging caseThe best headphone deals — save $42 on Sony's flagship noise-cancelling headphonesSEE ALSO: Apple's iPhone 12 is expected to bring major changes like a new design, 5G, and 3D cameras — here's everything we know about it so far
