Toyota's efforts in developing hydrogen fuel-cell powertrains aren't limited to passenger cars -- it's also working to make semis a bit greener.Toyota has unveiled the second iteration of its Project Portal hydrogen fuel-cell electric semi truck. The first version, which started testing last April, was created as a skunkworks project and made it from concept to production in just about a year, with Toyota's engineers working out of a garage in Michigan.Project Portal gets its power from a pair of hydrogen fuel-cell stacks borrowed from the Mirai sedan. Combined with a 12-kWh battery, the truck put out an impressive 670-plus horsepower and 1,325 pound-feet of torque. Its total combined weight rating is a hefty 80,000 pounds. The first version's range was about 200 miles, but this second version pushes that range north of 300 miles. The new Project Portal also packs a sleeper cab and a revised powertrain that boosts cab space without requiring a longer wheelbase.Project Portal 2.0 … [Read more...] about Toyota unveils Project Portal 2.0 hydrogen fuel-cell semi truck

The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 rumor mill has been abuzz this week, with suggestions that the forthcoming phablet may attempt to beat Apple's next iPhone to the draw and release ahead of its usual slot. This notion was quickly put to bed by Samsung Mobile president J.K. Shin, who has today confirmed that the device will not be hitting the scene any sooner than it ordinarily does. Still, this isn't going to throw the ravenous tech community off the scent of the Galaxy S6 line's more sizable cousin, and the folks at SamMobile have scooped some exclusive details pertaining to the device.According to the report, the Galaxy Note 5 (SM-N920) is being referred to internally as Project Noble, and "might" include a 2K or a 4K Super AMOLED flat display.

A leaked screenshot of the inventory system for the U.K.'s Carphone Warehouse suggests a couple of interesting things. First, it shows a Invisible Shield for a device called the Samsung Nexus 2. Or at least it seems like it is for a new device called the Samsung Nexus 2. On the other hand, it could be a new SKU for the Invisible Shield belonging to the Samsung GALAXY Nexus. We wouldn't be having this conversation if it wasn't coming up to a year since the launch of the Samsung GALAXY Nexus. In this day and age, why that's almost eons since the release of the last Nexus phone. The latest word we've heard around the water cooler is that the next Nexus device will be coming from LG. That would seem to negate the thought that what we see on the screen is for a new phone.The other item on the screen is a 32GB model of the Asus built Google Nexus 7. The low priced tablet is currently available in both 8GB and 16GB models and without a microSD slot on the tablet to increase storage, it makes … [Read more...] about Leaked screenshot reveals Samsung Nexus 2 and the Google Nexus 7 in handy 32GB size
