Together, the quintet is value at $2.8 trillion but to date none have managed to achieve the milestone of a $1 trillion market cap.Historically, even speculation that a company could approach that level has been finance's version of the Sports Illustrated jinx.Apple's recent run up has given CEO Tim Cook a lot to smile about.To say the road to a trillion hasn't been easy is to quickly gloss over the wreckage of contenders to the throne.The software giant then spent most of the next 15 years in the wilderness, trading down and then sideways before finally starting a sustained rise post recession -- but not before bottoming out around $200B.Consider that in the same era Vodafone, the mobile provider, was considered a possible trillion-dollar baby.

Thanks to Google’s Chromecast, and a host of other options, wireless streaming from your phone to your TV has never been easier.Using an MHL connection to wire your phone directly to your display via HDMI may not be as convenient as wireless streaming but, for a variety of reasons, it can be an enticing option.In 2010, a band of electronics companies, including Sony and Nokia, developed the MHL connection protocol.The most common way to connect for most people is to use an MHL adapter such as the one shown below, which consists of a male Micro USB plug on one end and a female HDMI port on the other.If your phone or tablet does not host a Micro USB port, you’ll also need another adapter, which we’ll discuss in more detail in the next section below.Now, though, there are lots of different cables that support MHL, including direct Micro USB-to-HDMI cables.

Jag var helt enkelt tvungen berätta för honom hur han kan tjäna så mycket mer pengar än han redan gör idag.Idag kommer merparten av hans intäkter (om vi bortser från bokutgivning och scenföreställningar) från olika sponsoraffärer kopplat till podden.Helt okej pengar såklart – men de borde tänka mer långsiktigt än att bara sälja bort sin målgrupp till högstbjudande.Istället för att bara marknadsföra andras produkter mot en ersättning skulle de få chansen att vara med på en verklig värdetillväxt som aktieägare.Det är dessutom tillgångar som finns kvar även om eller när de tröttnar på att podda.Men när jag var klar kunde jag ändå skönja ett visst intresse i hans ögon.

Since this method doesn't required additives or a kiln, it would help cut back on cargo -- and costs -- needed for a trip to Mars.Future Martians may live in brick buildings made of Martian soil thanks to research from a team of engineers at the University of California, San Diego.The new technique would allow astronauts to cut back on the amount of cargo they carry by leaving raw materials and most construction machinery behind.For years, NASA has sought proposals for using lunar and Martian soil (regolith) to build habitats.It is expensive to launch stuff into space, so by using resources found along the way (a principle called in situ resource utilization), agencies can cut back on transportation costs.Although previous proposals managed to create bricks out of regolith, they required kilns and complex chemistry to transform the soil into construction material.

The drugs used in lethal injections were not designed to kill people, and they are on the market today because of their use in medicine.Pharma companies don’t allow them to be used for executions, but Arkansas got their hands on some anyway.But corrections officers in Arkansas have managed to get their hands on three drugs that courts have ruled are suitable for the job.They have to hurry, though, because one of them expires at the end of this month.They planned eight executions, and four were allowed to go forward.An anesthesiologist might give you some when you get a colonoscopy, or as you’re heading into surgery so you don’t get nervous about everything else that’s going to happen.

WASHINGTON—State banking regulators sued a federal agency in an effort to prevent it from issuing specialty national banking licenses to financial-technology firms, a growing area of competition for traditional banking.The Conference of State Bank Supervisors claim the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency is reaching beyond its jurisdiction with its plan to license fintech firms that make loans, take deposits or cash checks.The group, which represents bank regulators from all 50 states, argues the OCC only has the...

Ron Howard is explaining what makes a genius."If you view the known as the light and the unknown as the darkness," he says, "then scientists and geniuses are working on that front line.They go in behind enemy lines, parachute in and have to fight their way back with any bits of knowledge they can discover.I'm on the phone with Howard to talk about "Genius", a new show exploring the life of legendary scientist Albert Einstein.The project began with Gigi Pritzker, who bought the rights to the biography of Einstein by Walter Isaacson.Isaacson also wrote the biography of Steve Jobs that was turned into the 2015 film, and Pritzker was intrigued by his exploration of creativity and where it comes from.

After Verizon struggled through Q1, it is becoming increasingly clear where its profits and customers have gone; T-Mobile has been pinching them again.While it will come as little surprise CEO John Legere and magenta army of disruptors have romped away once again, perhaps the scale of the victory will be somewhat of a surprise.Over the course of the last month, competition has intensified in the US postpaid market as a flurry of unlimited data contracts have been released from all angles.It would be fair to assume customers would stick to current providers considering the hassle of moving and the little benefit gained, though T-Mobile has continued momentum with another whirlwind performance.Over the course of the quarter, 798,000 branded postpaid phone customers we brought in, as well as 386,000 on the prepaid side of things.Postpaid net customer additions for full-year 2017 are now expected to be between 2.8 and 3.5 million, up from the previous guidance range of 2.4 and 3.4 million.

Instead of heading to couples’ counselling session to ail your frustration-filled pairing, however, tech could soon be sent to rescue you.More specifically, wearables, with scientists developing a way for body-adorning tech to be used to preemptively detect when arguments are about to break out.Research into the matter has already begun, with a team of scientists at the University of Southern California having kitted couples out in specialist wearables to study rising anger levels.As well as getting the participants to manually record their feelings towards their other half on an hourly basis, smart tech was used to monitor a range of body-tracking metrics.These included body temperature, heart activity and sweat levels.Combined with audio analysis looking at speech intensity and GPS data to show when couples were avoiding each other, all the data was fed into a machine learning system to detect when arguments were occurring.

Xiaomi Mi MIX is one of those smartphones that really impressed us during the last year and surely made Xiaomi officials to re-think their whole manufacturing process as a whole.Join GizChina on TelegramThe device needs a special treatment in order to produce its tri-bezel less display and also its ceramic coating, which resulted in huge delays and reduced production numbers.This led to mediocre availability for quite some time now, but according to new reports all these will be a thing of the past, since the Chinese company finally managed to solve all of the aforementioned problems.An insider revealed that now Xiaomi has enough stock of all 3 available Mi MIX variants (black, pearl white, black-gold ceramic) in its official store, because now all the challenges with the production of the ceramic body have been resolved.I guess you already know by now that the Mi MIX comes with a 6.4 inch tri-bezel less display, 4/6GB of RAM, 64/128GB storage and a 4400 mAh battery along with a rear mounted fingerprint sensor.It is currently priced at ¥3499 ( $508) for the 4GB/128GB model and can reach up to ¥3999 ( $580) for the 6GB/256GB model.Oh, there’s a Mi MIX 2 currently in the works by Xiaomi designers, scheduled to be unveiled in the coming months, but we will talk about it soon.Share this:TweetMorePocketShare on TumblrEmailPrint

After my Galaxy S8 review, of the most frequent questions I’ve been asked is whether people should buy the new Samsung now, or wait until the new iPhone is revealed later in 2017.Samsung deserves some serious kudos for what it’s done with the latest Galaxy flagship.Indeed, with bells & whistles like waterproofing and wireless charging that Apple is still yet to embrace, and the fact that the Galaxy S8 manages to include the 3.5mm headphone jack that proved so controversial in its absence on the iPhone 7, you might think the decision was a no-brainer.While Samsung may not have opted for a dual-camera system on the S8 – it looks like we’ll have to wait for the Galaxy Note 8 for that – I’d happily argue that the results from its single lens are at least on a par with what you’d get from a dual-camera Android rival.Factor in the easy upgrade process from one device running Google’s OS to the next, and really the only issue is figuring out whether to go for the 5.8-inch Galaxy S8 or the 6.2-inch S8 .Problem is, along the way you have to find Android equivalents to the apps you currently use, figure out how you’re going to port across purchased music and video, and potentially re-invest in a whole bunch of accessories because your current Lightning ones won’t work with the S8’s USB-C port.

Twitter-owned Periscope and the now defunct Meerkat paved the way for mobile live-streaming, and other social platforms have followed suit, with Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube all developing their own live video capabilities.However, tapping into this marketing opportunity presents its challenges.Here’s a look at a few of the issues that producing live content presents, and the ways brand marketers can overcome themThe most important thing to remember about live content is that its primary focus shouldn’t be about the brand or its services.Instead of viewing live video as a way to present information about a product or service in a new format, marketers should consider it as a way to share a story about a product or service, and how it adds value to a brand’s audience.As you begin incorporating live content into your marketing strategy, think about the key message and information you want your brand to convey, and evaluate whether or not you can achieve that goal with the help of live content.

If you’ve ever been inside a weed store, whether that’s medical or recreational, you know that there are usually ludicrous sounding claims for every strain of marijuana the store has.One might be “perfect for anxiety,” while another is best suited for chronic pain.When it comes to weed strains, there are two terms to know: sativa and indica.A strain of marijuana is genetic blend of the two, usually called a hybrid.These hybrid strains of weed generally get goofy names like Purple Kush or AK-47.For legal reasons, as John Oliver pointed out on Last Week Tonight, research on marijuana has been pretty difficult, but that doesn’t mean it’s impossible.
