Milestone prizes announced for Google’s Lunar XPRIZE competition

Google has announced the full list of milestone prize winners in the Lunar XPRIZE contest. Five teams have won prizes totaling $ 5.25 million across three categories: landing, mobility, and imaging.

The biggest winner was a team from Carnegie Mellon called Astrobotic, which brought in $ 1.75 million for its lunar polar rover. The team’s awards in imaging and mobility were actually announced back in December, but it was discovered today that the team was also chosen for one of the $ 1 million prizes in the landing category.

18 teams are competing for the $ 20 million grand prize

A second US-based team, Moon Express, was awarded prize money in the landing and imaging categories for its proposed mission focused on mining. German team…

Microsoft may have accidentally announced that it’s buying email app Acompli

Microsoft may have just accidentally announced that it is acquiring email startup Acompli. A post, authored by Microsoft corporate vice president Rajesh Jha, appeared on the company’s official blog today. Titled “blank post please delete,” the post’s body copy gave no information as to its purpose, but its slug — the text in its web address — read “microsoft-acquires-acompli.”

Brookstone puts up pre-order page for Fitbit Surge before it’s been announced

Fitbit still hasn’t gotten around to officially announcing its new $ 250 Surge fitness watch, but the company’s retail partners are no longer waiting around. An apparent mixup has led Brookstone to prematurely publish a pre-order page for the “super watch.” A friendly tipster clued us in on the mistake. And the page (still live as of this writing) confirms everything we’ve already told you: Surge is a fitness watch — not a smartwatch — with built-in GPS and a variety of sensors that can record your workouts and overall activity regardless of whether it’s linked up to a smartphone.

Fitbit’s going after runners in a big way with this device; they’ll be able to look back at split times and route history thanks to the GPS, all without…

Tesla just announced a supercar

It’s called the Model S P85D. It comfortably seats four, more if you’re willing to squeeze in a kid or two.

If your frame of reference for automobiles ended somewhere around the year 2000, the performance of Elon Musk’s hottest all-electric sedan yet would be outright difficult to comprehend. Even today, the numbers put up by this all-wheel-drive hatchback compare favorably with some of the rarest, most exotic, and most expensive vehicles ever made.

The top speed of the P85D is undoubtedly limited to something that won’t send you violently hurtling into another dimension, but let me say it on no uncertain terms: its quoted 0-60mph time of 3.2 seconds is solidly in supercar territory. Acceleration isn’t everything, but it’s something….

Nusii is on online proposal service aimed squarely at design professionals

If you’ve ever had to draft a client proposal then you know what a nightmare they are. You throw away countless billable hours writing the damned thing, have no idea if the client has even opened it, and nearly lose the use of your fingers to “copy, paste syndrome”.

Nusii believes in simplicity. All non-essential elements have been stripped back, helping you write and send proposals in a fraction of the time. You’ll
have all your “hit” content in one place, starter templates, reminders to follow up with prospective clients, and an editor that just “gets out of the way” (think Medium :)

Nusii gives you back all those non-billable hours lost to proposals…and it’ll impress the heck out of your clients too.

About GavickPro

GavickPro have always focused on quality design, but now they’ve introduced several changes to help make their themes even better. They’ve abandoned the GavernWP framework, so all their latest themes will instead use WordPress’ built-in Theme Customizer to let you get a live preview as you change theme settings. A new page-based frontpage means you can get up and running in minutes just by importing the demo content, and new documentation provides in-depth, step-by-step installation guides along with answers to common customization questions so that even beginners can get the most from their theme.
