Japan’s SoftBank Group, U.S. investment group Dragoneer and Chinese rideshare giant Didi Chuxing are close to finalizing their investment in Uber via a joint venture, sources tell TechCrunch.The tender offer is on track to launch by the end of the month and includes a direct investment in the company, as well as the purchase of shares from employees and early investors.We’re hearing that the conversations are not only still happening, but that the deal is likely to include the largest secondary transaction in history, with thousands of Uber employees eligible to sell shares.Bloomberg earlier reported that Uber could be lining up between $2 billion and $10 billion from these new investors.We’re hearing that the latest conversations involve numbers toward the top of that range, around $8 billion to $10 billion.The investment is being led by Dragoneer, Didi and SoftBank — which now has about $100 billion to deploy from its Vision Fund — but General Atlantic is also expected to participate.

En (egentligen två) helt ny 12-megapixelkamera (med 4K-video) har bättre färgfilter, djupare pixlar som fångar upp mer ljus samt en bättre bildprocessor.Man kan lägga till den berömda Rembrandt-effekten så att det ser ut som om ljuset bara faller mot ansiktet och suddar ut bakgrunden.Det är också mer stabil än tidigare modeller, med det tåligaste glaset – på både fram- och baksidan – som Apple någonsin har använt.En ram av rostfritt stål skyddar glasskanterna och glaset är belagt med antireflexbeläggning och ett optiskt skikt som ska förstärka färgerna.Antingen med Apples kommande AirPower (2018), som är en laddplatta med plats för flera enheter, eller någon annan laddare.Apple har valt Qi-standarden för trådlös laddning, så att man kan använda laddningsplattor från andra tillverkare.

Shoddy healthcare practices at Cooley Dickinson Hospital in Northampton, Massachusetts, led to the preventable deaths of two babies and a pregnant woman between 2013 and 2014.Yet most of the hospital’s patients had no idea of the dangerous state of affairs at the time—the hospital maintained its accreditation throughout the three tragedies, and, according to an investigation by The Wall Street Journal, it was even called a top performer by its accreditor, the Joint Commission.According to data collected by the Journal, hundreds of hospitals with federal safety violations continue to boast accreditation and a “Gold Seal of Approval” from the Joint Commission, a nonprofit that the government relies on to accredit almost 80 percent of US hospitals.Hospitals can use state inspections to prove they’re in compliance with federal safety standards and eligible to receive money from federal health programs.But many rely on accreditations and programs from private organizations such as the Joint Commission, which is the largest of the private accreditors.But the Joint Commission appears reluctant to downgrade a hospital’s status.

But there are a few other cosmetic and usability features as well, and you'll certainly notice them first.Unfortunately, Oreo is only rolling out to Google Pixels or Nexus phones for now.These are just our first impressions of Oreo -- stay tuned for our definitive analysis in the next few weeks.Animations such as swiping down to reveal the notification shade appear to have been tightened up, which gives the impression of speed, but overall I didn't notice much of a difference when switching between applications or launching apps.Resize the box by tapping once, or move it around the screen.Picture-in-picture is only available in a few apps including Chrome and YouTube Red.

Founded in 1997, the tech conglomerate NetEase is most well-known as China’s second largest gaming publisher after Tencent.Financial Times 2016 report described four Chinese tech giants BANT (Baidu, Alibaba, NetEase, and Tencent) as the answers to FANG (Facebook, Amazon, Netflix, and Google).What they share in common are the similarities in their products’ aesthetic and style, with the ultimate goal of initiating a lifestyle and conducting some standards of values through their products.With a slogan of “a better life doesn’t have to be costly”, it is dedicated to help build a more affordable yet quality life to young city dwellers by providing selected basic daily life products, ranging from home products, home textiles, kitchen ware and household appliances to daily life consumption products such as body & hair care, basic items of apparels, among others.Now products sold on Yanxuan are limited to nine main categories and the SKUs (Stocking Keeping Unit) are controlled around 7,000 items, according to Chinese media reports.The same big manufacturers in China contracted by Yanxuan are also the original producers for global brands.

For all of the breathless hype that containers and cloud native get, the strange-but-true story is that enterprises still need to run servers and for that vSphere is arguably the best possible option.Not surprisingly, then, VMware at its eponymous event linked arms with Pivotal (its step-child) and Google (with a cloud business run by ex-VMware and ex-Pivotal folks) to announce… PKS, essentially a rerun of the company’s open source Kubernetes-on-BOSH (KuBo) project.But the bigger fail in all this is that VMware, while missing the container hype train, still has plenty of virtualization to sell.Or, as The Register’s Simon Sharwood reported, PKS “make[s] all three partners more relevant”.Which makes Virtzilla's code relevant to another important application and therefore more useful.Google shows that Kubernetes may be cloud-native, but is also relevant for those who aren't wholly committed to the cloud."

Yesterday, Equifax announced that a hacker obtained information about 143 million consumers.This data included Social Security numbers, birth dates, addresses and, in some cases, driver’s license numbers.Equifax customers are obviously really, really mad.So it’s not surprising that Bloomberg discovered that a class action lawsuit was filed against Equifax.Hacks have become quite normal these days.But it’s a bit different with Equifax as the company has a ton of personal information about you.

sciencehabit shares a report from Science Magazine: U.K. soccer star David Beckham was known for "bending" his free kicks over walls of defenders and around sprawling goal tenders, thanks to a physical force called the Magnus effect.Now, the physics behind such curving kicks is set to be used to propel ocean ships more efficiently.Early next year, a tanker vessel owned by Maersk, the Danish transportation conglomerate, and a passenger ship owned by Viking Line will be outfitted with spinning cylinders on their decks.Mounted vertically and up to 10 stories tall, these "rotor sails" could slash fuel consumption up to 10%, saving transportation companies hundreds of thousands of dollars and cutting soot-causing carbon emissions by thousands of tons per trip.Rotor sails rely on a bit of aerodynamics known as the Magnus effect.In the 1850s, German physicist Heinrich Gustav Magnus noticed that when moving through air a spinning object such as a ball experiences a sideways force.

The smartest thing Debra Bednar-Clark has done for her career wasn't an internship, or a meeting, or an elevator pitch.Before starting her own company, career and leadership coaching firm DB+co, Bednar-Clark was the global head of strategy and growth at Facebook, and spent time as Microsoft's director of US market strategy and engagement."When I look back," she told Business Insider, "I think for a lot of my career I was in a tug of war between what I was supposed to do and who I actually am or aspire to be.Early in my career I was one of few female coders, and I felt compelled to really shut down the different sides of myself to fit in and earn the respect of my male colleagues.But what I realized is that when we're separating our personal self from our professional self, we're often leaving the best parts of who we are at the door when we walk into the office every day."Plus, she continued, "this fragmentation is self-limiting because you're ultimately just showing a one-dimensional version of yourself rather than all of the things that make you unique.

We now exist an interesting interstitial moment, one defined by big corporations producing much of the innovation and some of the world’s richest companies – Apple, Amazon, Uber, Facebook – trying to solve big hairy problems.These are the problems that startups would have once solved but because they are so expensive – I’m talking about commercial VR, self-driving trucks, gene editing, and the like – there are no startups capitalized to tackle them.First, it means the frothy startup mania that defined this past decade – and was largely chronicled on this site – is going to slow for a while.Small companies could pull off upsets – Compaq and Microsoft leading the charge – but most of the heavy lifting was done by IBM, TI, and the other massive corporations.It also means that big companies will be tackling big problems with big money and it’s time for those selfsame companies to start doing these things in places outside of SF, London, and New York.Their continued revival is critical to the country’s ability to innovate and compete, create jobs and raise incomes and living standards.
