Domino's Pizza's Australian outpost has blamed a partner for a security breach, after angry customers went online complaining about finding themselves on spam lists.The company owned up to the breach after Redditor “Pinchie McPinch” complained about receiving e-mails from “Sarah” and “Jess”.What tipped Pinchie that the data may have come from the pizza chain was that the spammers were referring to his/her favourite Domino's locations to make the approaches look more plausible.Domino's acknowledged the breach and said it is investigating what happened.The company blamed the breach on an unnamed “former” supplier.The company's statement says the breach was limited to “email addresses, names and store suburbs (related to pizza orders) … at no time has customer financial information (including credit cards) or passwords, been accessed or compromised.”

Going into my hands-on demo with Oculus’ Project Santa Cruz headset, think I forgot how it felt to be surprised by virtual reality.Since then we’ve seen a few refinements—Oculus Rift’s built-in headphones and lighter form factor, the remarkably comfortable and intuitive Oculus Touch controllers—but the fundamental tech has stayed pretty similar to the Vive demo I saw in 2015.I forgot about—well, articles like this, where I wrote about waving back to a virtual alien.Mobile VR is fairly simple, fairly small, and limited by the hardware—meaning no position tracking of either the headset or separate controllers.Oculus was pretty tight-lipped about Santa Cruz’s specs, but did let us go hands-on with two different demos.Maybe not Intel Core i7 and a GeForce GTX 1080 Ti great, but certainly on par with the lower spec Oculus-ready machines—maybe one equipped with a GTX 1060?

At the recent MarTech Conference in Boston, I got a chance to sit in on the opening morning’s fireside chat between Dun & Bradstreet Chief Marketing Officer Rishi Dave and conference chair Scott Brinker.One of the main points of their discussion was how data should underpin all things marketing within an organization.That includes branding, marketing, culture, and of course, the marketing technology stack itself.It’s no accident that data and marketing have joined together within the ever-evolving consumerized environment.With the increased emphasis on customer experience in business and marketing, the art of storytelling in marketing communications has evolved to blend seamlessly with the science of data-driven digital analytics.[Read the full article on MarTech Today.]

Microsoft almost beat Apple, Samsung, and Google to the punch when it comes to bezel-less, full-screen smartphone displays.Windows Central happens to have in its possession a rare Windows Phone prototype device, codenamed “Vela,” that was an early iteration of what would eventually become the uninspired Lumia 435.The device sports the now nearly ubiquitous edge-to-edge display style now being used by Apple’s iPhone X, the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Note 8, and Google’s new Pixel 2 XL.Vela’s development appears to also predate Xiaomi’s Mi Mix, which helped popularize the modern bezel-less trend last year.Even more surprising: Windows Central says Microsoft was planning to price the unreleased Lumia phone at under $200, choosing to brand it as a budget phone with an otherwise unprecedented display design.Like the similarly ambitious Sharp Aquos Crystal, another bezel-less phone a couple years ahead of the big mobile players, Microsoft planned on putting the front-facing camera into the bottom of the device, to ensure the top of the phone’s frame remained slim and flush with the screen.

LOMPOC, Calif.—Space Exploration Technologies Corp. blasted 10 commercial satellites into orbit Monday, completing the first of a pair of consecutive launches slated from opposite coasts in roughly two days.The predawn liftoff from central California’s Vandenberg Air Force Base, which put the cluster of communications satellites into space for Iridium Communications Inc., IRDM 0.44% was the 14th consecutive successful launch this year for SpaceX, as entrepreneur Elon Musk’s closely held company is called.The bright orange glow during ascent filled the night sky, and the clear weather meant the plumes of the returning first stage were clearly visible as it headed back for a pinpoint landing on a floating platform in the Pacific Ocean.SpaceX plans to put up a commercial satellite for a different customer on another Falcon 9 rocket from Florida’s Kennedy Space Center as early as Wednesday afternoon, demonstrating its bicoastal prowess to dispatch and organize launch personnel on such a compressed timeline.Through the end of 2018, Mr. Musk’s management team is targeting one launch every two weeks on average, a pace exceeding any company or government schedule world-wide.The Air Force recently suggested it is moving toward the ability to launch two rockets from various Florida pads on the same day.

An anonymous reader quotes the Sydney Morning Herald: Billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk's claims about the self-driving capabilities of his upcoming Tesla vehicles are "full of crap", General Motors' self-driving Tsar says... "To think you can see everything you need for a level five autonomous car [full self-driving] with cameras and radar, I don't know how you do that"... GM's own solution involves several radar and Lidar sensors, as well as cameras and multiple redundancy systems.Each system costs hundreds of thousands of dollars, and GM are some way away from getting the cost low enough to be commercially viable."The level of technology and knowing what it takes to do the mission, to say you can be a full level five with just cameras and radars is not physically possible," Mr Miller said.

Like a scene from the movie Alien, insect parasitoids inject their eggs into unsuspecting hosts, their offspring grow and eat from within, eventually bursting out leaving dead, empty host vessels.Parasitoid wasp larvae feed on the pupae of nesting bees, and their fast reproduction can destroy entire colonies with barely a trace of the preceding carnage."Collecting field data is necessary but expensive, so it's great to show we can use mathematical models to help focus efforts and make data collection more efficient," Phillip Staniczenko, Ph.D., lead author and research fellow at the National Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center (SESYNC)."Faced with all the complicated relationships among species, and between species and the environment, it's amazing we can identify simple patterns that, although not perfect, describe how humans might be affecting parasitism in the same way at different places all over the world."Joining this research effort were Staniczenko's former adviser, Felix Reed-Tsochas, Ph.D., at the CABDyN Complexity Centre at the University of Oxford's Saïd Business School, Owen Lewis, Ph.D., professor of ecology at the University of Oxford, Jason Tylianakis, Ph.D., professor of ecology at the University of Canterbury in New Zealand, Matthias Albrecht, Ph.D., researcher at the Institute for Sustainability Sciences in Switzerland, Valérie Coudrain, Ph.D., researcher at the Mediterranean Institute of Marine and Terrestrial Biodiversity and Ecology in France, and Alexandra-Maria Klein, professor of ecology at the University of Freiburg in Germany.They based their findings on host-parasitoid interaction data collected in Ecuador, Indonesia, and Switzerland, at field sites located in a diverse range of ecosystems, including tropical forest and agroforest, temperate meadows and plains, as well as human-modified habitats, such as pasture land and rice paddies.

Apple revealed Siri with the iPhone 4S in October 2011, one day before cofounder Steve Jobs died.“Apple hasn’t improved to stay as competitive as it needs to be.”A Google product event Wednesday underscored the growing gap.What’s more, Google executives showed off features of Google assistant so far unmatched by Siri and Apple.HomePod includes Siri, but Apple CEO Tim Cook has positioned it more as a successor to the iPod, an attempt to “reinvent home music,” than the multifunctional home helpers it most resembles.Google and particularly Amazon also have done more than Apple to enable outsiders to work with their assistants—borrowing a strategy the Cupertino company pioneered with the iPhone’s app store.

There were many questions asked, but the majority of them centered on finding out what editors are interested in printing and determining how to contact the editor/reporter.Communications to editors/reporters vary with the person.Some of the older, experienced editors still like to sort through the faxes in their in-box, regardless of how busy they are or how tech-savvy they want to be.Making the communication stand out is key to making sure it won't go into the delete file or the waste bin.Editors expect e-mail communication and faxes, so don't think of it as spam or unsolicited faxes.Some hometown publication editors like to get phone calls.

Marketing encompasses everything you do or say that customers and prospects see or hear.That includes the way your proposals look and how they're presented, your signs, your voice-mail messages and any traditional marketing that you use.The key to your marketing is to choose the weapons that work for you, that are applicable to your markets and customers, and that you can afford mentally and financially.You can't do it all; you can't launch and implement every single marketing weapon there is.In some cases, there will be financial considerations that might not be affordable.Different combinations of marketing weapons work for different businesses and different people.
