p With the HTC U 11 set to be announced in a little over a week, it’s only fitting that we take a look back at its predecessor, the HTC 10, which is easily one of the most underrated flagships of 2016.It really is unfortunate that the HTC 10 failed to garner more attention from consumers despite being universally praised by reviewers, which is not something that can be said for a couple of its predecessors.In fact, I’ve seen the LG G5 out in the wild a whole lot more than the HTC 10, and HTC’s marketing (or lack therefore) is definitely accountable for that.It’s a shame that this phone became one of the best smartphones of 2016 that no one was buying, despite going toe to toe with the other flagships that were available at the time.Things have been at a steady decline since then, but with the LG’s 2016 flagship being mostly a miss with consumers, HTC had an opportunity to recapture that magic.In terms of the phone’s durability, there are some minor nicks and scrapes to be seen, but it definitely is in great shape when you consider that I didn’t use a case with this phone.

p Microsoft is making it easier for developers to manage their cloud deployments on the go, using a new mobile app and browser-based command line.On Wednesday, the company unveiled Azure Cloud Shell, which lets developers spin up a full-fledged terminal environment inside Microsoft’s cloud and comes with a set of preconfigured tools for managing deployments.Each user will have persistent file storage in their Cloud Shell, hosted in Microsoft Azure.Cloud Shells are accessible through the Microsoft Azure web portal, as well as the Azure mobile app for iOS and Android, which was just released Wednesday.That app also provides users with the ability to monitor the workloads they have running in Microsoft’s public cloud and perform basic management like stopping and restarting virtual machines.Those two tools allow developers and administrators to get more work done, even if they’re not at their personal computer.

Director Guy Ritchie, best known for gangster films like Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels and Snatch, takes the style and locomotion of those films and infuses it with the spectacle seen in his big Sherlock Holmes films.When King Arthur is just about Arthur (played as an adult by Pacific Rim’s Charlie Hunnam), Ritchie is in his element.There are dynamic character interactions, lots of energy, fast-cut montages, and precise dialogue.The director begins the grandiose story of King Arthur, with all its magic and legend, in a grounded, gritty reality.Where the film is a little less confident is when it has to live up to Arthurian mythology, albeit a modified version of it.Arthur is sent off on his own, raised in a brothel, and becomes a ground-level gangster.
p Russians are reportedly tired of hacking accusations aimed at Moscow.After the newly-elected French president Emmanuel Macron's political campaigns' 9GB worth of data was leaked on 5 May, just 48 hours before the election, some security experts pointed fingers at Kremlin-linked hacker group Fancy Bear, also known as APT28 or Sofacy.However, following the leaks, Russians reportedly took to social media platforms to express their displeasure, claiming that the country was being made a scapegoat.Vocative reports that Russians are deeming the allegations from the international community as "continued demonization" of Russia.One Russian took to Twitter to mockingly comment on an article in a Russian state-owned newspaper, about the US accusing Russia for the Macron leaks.It's not even funny," the user wrote.
p Intrepid music lovers have found a way (or think they’ve found a way) to swing the Billboard charts in favor of their favorite musician.The Verge reports groups of fans on Tumblr and Twitter are working together, using VPNs and all-night streaming sessions, in an effort to boost Billboard chart numbers.The song they’re trying to get to the top of the charts is One Direction band member Harry Styles’ solo single “Sign of the Times.”The VPNs are used by non-American users to show an American IP address, which is necessary as Billboard only counts US music streams.Fans trade VPN links to the song and stream it across multiple services all night on low volume.They buy the song for themselves and as gifts on iTunes, and feed it through the popular Shazam app (under the assumption that the latter has an effect on radio play).
p Grilled cheese is already one of the best snacks around but, believe it or not, there’s a way to make it even better: add cheese (and other toppings) to the outside, not just the inside, of the sandwich.Cancel your appointments for the day and make this grilled cheese instead.When I saw Popsugar’s suggestion to add even more cheese on top of your sandwich, I was skeptical.Sure, more cheese is almost always a good idea, but would it really make the sandwich that much better?But they also topped their grilled cheese with sliced mushrooms, which seemed to melt right into the bread, making me even more curious and eager to try this method with other toppings.To properly melt the cheese into the bread, Popsugar used an electric countertop grill, and luckily, I had one, too.
En knapp på startmenyn ledde dit och möjliggjorde installation av olika uppdateringar.2005 kom Microsoft Update, som även tillät uppdatering av Office-paketet och andra Microsoftprogram.Samtidigt kom också de hatade automatiska omstarterna för viktiga uppdateringar.De allra flesta av de uppdateringar som hämtas till ditt system med Windows Update-verktyget tar tag i något säkerhetsproblem.Inget program kan vara perfekt och det finns en hel värld av skurkar där ute som ständigt letar efter programmeringsmissar som kan utnyttjas för att angripa din dator på olika sätt.Microsoft rättar rutinmässigt nyupptäckta hål, lägger till nya definitioner till Windows Defender, förstärker säkerheten i Office och så vidare.
p Google’s Home speaker can do all kinds of cool things just by listening to your voice commands, such as describe the weather, play music and control your smart home devices.But what if you want a voice assistant that doesn’t cost over a hundred dollars?You build your own, of course.The latest issue of MagPi, the official magazine from the folks behind the Raspberry Pi DIY computer, comes with all the hardware you need to add voice capabilities to a Raspberry Pi – including a cute cardboard case.The hardware kit that’s bundled with the physical magazine was developed in partnership with Google.Issue 57 of the magazine – which includes instructions and notes on projects you can build with the kit – will set you back by about $8, and you’ll need a Raspberry Pi 3, which costs about $42.
p Microsoft gör om sitt erbjudande för dataanalystjänsten Power BI.Det är både goda och dåliga nyheter för de som är gratisanvändare i dag.På den ljusa sidan märks att de som kör gratisvarianten av tjänsten, Power BI Desktop, får tillgång till samma funktionalitet och till samma datakällor som med betalvarianten Power BI Pro.Dessutom ökas datavolymerna som kan hanteras, både strömmande och för lagring.På den mörka sidan ser vi att Power BI Desktop-användare inte kommer att kunna dela med sig av analyser och ”dashboards” och inte heller får tillgång till samarbetsfunktioner.Desktopvarianten blir alltså ett rent enanvändarverktyg.
And it is also the part which forms a kind of foundation for the Swedish business, which is growing in Lund. Bosch saw it as a very interesting region and as an opportunity to be able to work with the issues in a new way.the Operations for Car Multimedia in Hildesheim, needed to be expanded and it was difficult to recruit people, " says Carl Gustavsson, who is assistant plant manager for Bosch Lundagäng.We have had a focus on senior developers, and have also recruited a smaller number of engineers with no or few years of experience, and on the way it is, " says Carl Gustavsson, who has seen the business grow considerably in the last year, and it is far from satisfied. " We started in January last year.Right now, we are just over 90, and the goal for this year is to be 105.
p Back in March, Google updated its relatively new effort called Project Sunroof, an initiative that uses a bunch of data to estimate the solar potential of buildings in a region.The project is intended to help businesses and consumers make decisions about utilizing solar energy.The project has thus far released solar potential data for regions across the U.S., and now it is expanding overseas with the announcement of a new partnership in Germany.The Project Sunroof has teamed up with E.ON, the European company behind many electric service providers.Solar power is an important part of renewable energy, but it’s still largely out of the reach of many consumers.The difficulty in utilizing a solar system for energy isn’t limited to costs, which are coming down, but also to knowledge and available information.
p Talk about 5G networks has been increasing, and most of the big carriers have at least mentioned the technology.Latest among them is T-Mobile, which has called out its two biggest competitors over what it feels are inferior and/or sketchy 5G claims.The Uncarrier goes so far as to accuse AT of peddling a ‘fake 5G’ network, the latter carrier’s so-called ‘5G Evolution’ offering.Amidst it all, T-Mobile made a big claim: it plans to offer a legit 5G network, and that network will be available nationwide in 2020.T-Mobile started its announcement with a nice long rant, saying, “5G is the buzziest of buzzwords in wireless right now.The carriers are fueling the hype to create tons of confusion.’ It then goes on to point firmly at AT and its recently announced ‘5G Evolution,’ a supposed 5G offering for select phones in select places.
p This morning Microsoft took an unexpected turn and released a traditional notebook computer called Surface Laptop.This machine is traditional in several respects – it doesn’t have a detachable display, it’s not meant to be used without its keyboard, it runs full Windows – but it’s also unique.This Surface Laptop has a Signature Alcantara covered keyboard and palm rest, Dolby Audio Premium “Omnisonic Speakers”, and has a touchscreen display with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 to protect it.In the paragraph below I’ve included images of all the specifications of the Surface Laptop.There are several configurations of this laptop coming to the public, while only a few – or just one configuration – comes with multiple color options.This notebook has some oddities about it, to be sure.

p If you can't afford Intel's super fast Optane SSDs but need a massive speed boost, the company's latest DC P4600 and DC P4500 SSDs may fill the need.The new SSDs are based on conventional 3D NAND and targeted at data centers.The SSDs will be used in servers or storage arrays to serve up quick video streams, voice-assistant AI responses, and even pull out information from databases.These SSDs are a reliable upgrade for those who don't want to mess with Optane, which is based on brand-new memory technology.According to Intel's rough estimate, the P4500 and P4600 drives provide two times faster read and write performance compared to predecessors, the DC P3520 and P3600 drives.The P4600 will come in capacities of 1.6TB ($1,384) and 3.2TB ($2,589) for the U.2 form factor and 2TB ($1,619) and 4TB ($3,239) for the AIC form factor.
There has been much Elon Musk the last few days.And it is perhaps not surprising when the multi-the ceo just made an appearance at a Ted conference in Vancouver, where he talked about everything from ellastbilar to tunnelborrar.And now the entire performance is available via the Ted.com.Something that should be seen as quite unusual when Ted usually takes almost half a year before they place their conference materials online.the Best quote from the Musks Ted Talk?"I'm not trying to be someone's rescuer.
Jo vuosia Afrikan kehittyneimpien valtioiden talouksien on hehkutettu nousevan Brics-maiden nyttemmin jo hiipuneen loiston perillisiksi.Afrikka ei vielä ole lunastanut odotuksia, sillä maanosan poliittinen kehitys on osoittautunut edelleen kovin epävarmaksi ja ennustamattomaksi.Siellä täällä leimahtelevat kriisit ja sotilaalliset yhteenotot nujertavat talouden kehitystä.On kuitenkin yksi maa, jossa ei ole sodittu sen rauhassa tapahtuneen itsenäistymisen jälkeen, jossa korruptio on vähäistä ja poliittinen elämä soljuu hyvässä demokratian hengessä aina presidenttien lakisääteiseen vaihtumiseen asti.Sosiaalitukien Botswana onkin kuin demarilandia, jossa kaikki poliittiset liikkeet yrittävät kilpailla siitä, mikä niistä on sosiaalidemokraattisin.Työmarkkinaneuvos Pekka Peltolan kirja antaa uutta tietoa.
p Turkey has blocked all access inside the country to the online encyclopaedia Wikipedia, one of the world's most popular websites.It was not initially clear why the ban had been imposed.The Turkey Blocks group said the site was inaccessible from 08:00 (05:00 GMT) by order of the Turkish authorities.People in the capital Istanbul were unable to access any Wikipedia pages without using a Virtual Private Network (VPN)."After technical analysis and legal consideration based on the Law Nr.5651, an administrative measure has been taken for this website," Turkey's Information and Communication Technologies Authority was quoted as saying.
