Philips Hue Edison bulbs are introduced along with a new lamp and smart plug


Philips has announced a number of new products for its Smart Home Hue product line.

The Edison-style Hue Smart lamps are LED lamps, but they are designed to have exposed filaments inside – visible through the clear glass of the lamp. Very hip.

The Edison bulbs will be available in three sizes and will be available in the US from October. There is currently no information available on a more complete version. However, prices are expected to start at $ 25 (~ £ 20).

The next interesting addition to the Hue series is a Smart Plug – finally. A Hue Smart Plug has disappeared since its launch in the Philips Hue ecosystem, focusing instead on lighting products. The price for the Smart Plug is $ 40 when released.

The Philips Hue Smart Key is another fascinating new product. The button is designed to simplify the control of your lighting system at home. Use the button to turn the lights on and off, dim and adjust them to automatically adjust to the time of day. The button is sold for $ 20 (~ £ 17).

The Hue Go now has a longer battery life and stands up correctly when loading. The lamp will be available in the US from November for $ 80.

Last form

In case you do not want to get any further

Scotland have had a mixed qualifying campaign with two wins and two draws and had to face a heavy defeat against Belgium.

Russia was in a much better shape, with only one defeat in qualifying. A victory in Scotland, however, would mean that both records are identical, which underlines the importance of the game.

Scotland Russia
Belgium – Scotland 3: 0 (06/11/19) Russia – Cyprus 1: 0 (06.11.19)
Scotland – Cyprus 2: 1 (6. 8. 19) Russia 9-0 San Marino (8/6/19)
San Marino – Scotland 0: 2 (3/24/19) Kazakhstan 0-4 Russia (24.3.19)
Kazakhstan – Scotland 3: 0 (21.3.19) Belgium 3-1 Russia (21.3.19)
Scotland – Israel 3: 2 (20.11.18) Sweden – Russia 2: 0 (11/20/18)


In case you do not want to get any further

Scotland have had a hard time and the fans were dissatisfied with the performances – especially with the sad performances against Kazakhstan and San Marino.

Russia has a decent team, but the difference is that they play with strong unity and conviction. As a result she should have too much quality for the Scots and claim a significant profit for their qualification hopes.

Forecast: Scotland 1-3 Russia

Maurice the rooster wins the fight for the continuation of the dawn in a series that separated France


Maurice, the loud French rooster that made international headlines when its owner was sued by its neighbors for its severe dawn call, has the right to continue crowing, a court ruling on Thursday ruled.

The noisy rooster became one of France's most famous birds when a retired couple took him to court and demanded that he not be greeted every day with a loud chorus of screeches and shrieks.

They wanted his owner, Corinne Fesseau, to be removed or silenced. They suggested locking him in a dark room to protect him from dawn and disturb sleep in their holiday home on the picturesque island of Oléron off the west coast of France.

The court dismissed her appeal and ordered her to pay Ms. Fesseau € 1,000 (£ 896) to cover her litigation costs.

The case ruffled rural feathers and came to symbolize the tensions between rural people and retirees or holiday homeowners disturbed by animal noises, odors or insects.

City dwellers who have bought holiday or retirement homes in the country in recent years have initiated similar lawsuits against cows, ducks, nocturnally mating frogs and church bells.
