Gadget Daddy: Want a floating light? Forget the collectible – Business – News Chief

The VGAzer Magnetic Levitating Floating Wireless LED Light Bulb Desk Lamp “no need cables.”

Here’s a gadget that I just know will make Gadget Daddy’s Best Gadgets and Computer Items of 2020. Since I’m the one that makes that call, I’m certain of it.

A few months ago, I saw an advertisement for the Harry Potter Levitating Golden Snitch Sculpture. The sculpture consisted of a winged golden ball that floated about an inch above a platform that glowed with a blue light. It also slowly rotated while floating in space.

“Strong demand is expected … for this collectible sculpture.” Collectible? Maybe. Such items get collected — only to be disposed of years later at garage sales for pennies on the dollar. The cost to acquire this one? $199.95. Also add $23 for shipping and another $14 sales tax for an all-in of approximately $237.

But this levitating accessory idea was

    The 10 best tech stocks to buy for 2020.

    The 2010s, among other things, were characterized by the rapid rise of “Big Tech,” which brought Wall Street its first trillion-dollar empires. Entering 2020, the five most valuable companies traded on U.S. exchanges were all tech stocks. The specter of antitrust regulation is real, but the idea that regulation will bring Silicon Valley to its knees is a fantasy. In another 10 years, technology will play an even larger role in everyday life and markets than it does today, so investors may as well come along for the ride. Without further ado, here are 10 of the best tech stocks to buy for 2020 – and how those picks have fared in a market marred by volatility.

    Popular weather app and data-collection service Dark Sky has been acquired by Apple for an undisclosed sum, a blog post from the Dark Sky team announced. The post claims that Dark Sky will now “reach far more people, with far more impact, than we ever could alone.”

    The iOS app will not see any changes “at this time,” and it will continue to be listed on the App Store. Android and Wear OS are a different story, though. The Android app will no longer be available for download, and “service to existing users and subscribers will continue until July 1, 2020,

    Motor manufacturer, Kia, have today released a report detailing two pieces of customer research in November 2019 and January 2020, speaking to 3000 UK residents between 16 and 60 about their views on moving to Electric from Petrol or Diesel cars.

    The research revealed that almost half of those interviewed admitted to over-exaggerating their green credentials to family and friends on subjects such as going ‘plastic-free’ and adopting zero-emission vehicles.

    It transpired that 65% of parents make green decisions after pressure from their children, with 46% of parents saying they felt pressured by them to go green.

    However, only 60% of Brits say they are ready to make the move to fully electric cars.
