An accommodating agency announced that freelancers have the option to use new, simpler rules based on the size of their offices, starting with returns for calendar year that are filed in Under the revised rules, freelancers can more easily calculate their deductions and reduce their record-keeping and paperwork requirements. But the streamlining left unchanged the strict eligibility requirements that must be satisfied by freelancers who claim such money-saving deductions.
This year had no shortage of technology advances—some of which that read like a line out of a s sci-fiction novel. But these are also discoveries and innovations that will dictate the technologies of the future—the 10 best technology advances of A Retinal Implant That Can Receive Updates The Argus Retinal Prosthesis is the first of its kind—a bionic retinal implant that helps people see in the same way a hearing aid helps people hear.
The Argus II was approved and released commercially in the United States in this year and received a firmware update that granted users color vision.
The Argus II is a peek into the future—a glance into a future where once these implants get good enough, a bionic eye will be better than a natural human one. Hard Drives Filled With Helium Besides just sounding cool, the new helium-filled hard drives introduced by Western Digital this year are a game-changer in storage technology.
To put it simply, because their new highly efficient hard drives are filled with helium rather than air, they can now cram 6 TB of capacity into a single drive. Wait till you take a look at the 4K displays that companies have been flaunting all year.
They made a big splash at CES earlier this year, but now that prices have gone down and more content has become available, 4K displays might become the new standard sooner than we think. With its lag-free head tracking and HD displays, this Kickstarter-funded, virtual reality headset is the only one that has ever mattered.
It was created from stem cells in a London lab and was funded primarily by Google cofounder Sergey Brin. First Flying Car Gets Tested Publicly Alongside the jet pack, the lack of flying cars in modern society has been a constant reminder of how far we have to go for the past 50 years.
But saw the first movement on this front in years: The Transition is a vehicle that can drive down the street and take liftoff with just feet of runway.
