If you don t like bothering people with favors, there may be a part of you that s afraid they ll be annoyed with you.If that s the case, go ahead and ask, because personal favors actually make you more likable.Often our own actions about people determine our ideas about them, rather than the other way around.In other words, we don t give our enemies a chance to become our friends, and asking for a favor can turn that around.There s another way to look at this, though.Asking for a favor also gives someone a chance to help you, and that makes people feel good about themselves and about you.

Here is a small but very useful and long overdue update to Google s G Suite apps: Docs, Sheets, Slides and Forms are getting support for creating custom, reusable templates that you can share with your co-workers.While you may not use templates much in your day-to-day G Suite life, this is a necessary feature for businesses.You don t want to have to recreate your report or newsletter layout every time you start a new one, after all.For the most part then, the addition of template support in Google Docs is yet another example of Google trying to make its service more attractive to business users as it gets serious about the enterprise.Google notes that G Suite for Business and Education will be able to require their users to request approval before their templates appear in the domain-wide template gallery.In addition, they can restrict who can even submit templates to begin with.

The evolution of the Nexus: introductionThe Google Nexus range, in many ways, helped revolutionize the mobile market in much the same way that the Apple iPhone has.The Nexus devices may not have set the world alight in terms of sales, but they served as important reference points for Android manufacturers - and some of them have been rather good.The Google Nexus One was not the first Android phone to market, that was the T-Mobile G1.With manufacturers still seemingly unconvinced about creating devices for its new mobile OS, Google introduced the Nexus One to show developers just what the software could do.Google had never planned on making the Nexus series into a staple of the annual smartphone diet.

Kameos affärsidé går ut på att privatpersoner går ihop och finansierar lån till bolag, något som kallas crowdlending.Bolaget har dock inte lyckats få verksamheten att lyfta och har sedan lanseringen i våras förmedlat 7,5 miljoner kronor i lån fördelat på sju lån.Det kan jämföras med konkurrenten Tessin, som förmedlat 250 miljoner kronor i lån sedan de startade i maj 2014.Läs mer: Kameo får Fi:s tillstånd – första crowd-lånet går till fastighetsbolag2017 siktar Kameo på att förmedla 100 miljoner kronor i lån och bolaget hoppas att satsningen i Norge ska ge större volym.Vi är fortfarande i ett ganska tidigt skede.

A burger is a relatively fragile thing.It s a stack of stuff, and you ve got to be quite careful with it, says Mr. Green, head of U.K. sales for Deliveroo, a U.K.-based app that connects users to restaurants that wouldn t normally deliver.But fancier ingredients also up the risks of a burger gone wrong, creating challenges for delivery services.In the U.S., GrubHub says it sees hundreds of thousands of orders a month, while burgers were the second-most popular item in 2015, behind french fries, purchased on DoorDash, a delivery company that operates in several U.S. states.And in London, burgers are the most-searched item on UberEATS, says Toussaint Wattinne, general manager of the delivery service app from transportation company Uber.Deliveroo says burgers are among the top three cuisines in 90% of over 110 cities where it operates in Europe, Asia and Australia.

There's a couple of weeks to go until Black Friday carnage is unleashed, but several outlets are getting a head start, with Argos announcing a full-on deals bonanza.Starting on Friday, November 18, the retailer will run a 13-day Black Friday event that will continue through Cyber Monday, and which it promises will provide "deals galore on thousands of products".While the company is yet to reveal specific deals, it promised there will be some sizable discounts available on a range of technology, toys, consumer electronics, and domestic appliances.Black Friday itself takes place on November 25, but it seems there will be plenty of opportunities to bag a deal in the days leading up to, and after, the big day itself.Amazon has already announced it's Black Friday discounts will go live starting Monday 14, and go on until Black Friday, while several other outlets will be slashing prices over the coming weeks.Cyber Monday takes place on November 28, and is basically Black Friday's geekier, digital cousin, when a range of technology deals are set to go live.

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare ReviewPlatforms: PC, PS4, Xbox OneAlthough Call of Duty is now an annual event, like Christmas or cleaning out the gutters, the last time we saw a Call of Duty from Infinity Ward was three long years ago.Sadly, that happened to be the dreadful Call of Duty: Ghosts.Infinite Warfare sees Infinity Ward trying hard to bring back the glory days of the studio, by transposing the action to a future scenario where humanity has colonised the solar system.The campaign is a thoroughly entertaining mixture of the familiar running and gunning, and arcade-like spacecraft combat.

Google engineers offer guidance to keep application developers from shooting themselves in the foot.In the wake of the last month's distributed denial of service DDoS attack against Dyn, a DNS management service, Google engineers want to remind application developers that self-harm represents a more realistic risk.Just as US citizens have a greater chance of being crushed by falling furniture than to dying at the hands of terrorists, developers are more likely to DDoS themselves than suffer downtime from an external attack, or so claim Google site reliability engineers Dave Rensin and Adrian Hilton in a blog post.The Register asked Google if it could quantify that claim with specific figures, but we haven't yet heard back.Rensin and Hilton observe that software engineers commonly assume that system load will be evenly distributed and fail to plan for the alternative."Of course, you don t want a momentary hiccup in network coverage to force you to wait an extra 15 minutes for the information, so you also write your app to retry every 60 seconds in the event of an error."

Olen pahoillani, että emme voittaneet tätä vaalia jakamiemme arvojen ja Yhdysvalloille näkemämme vision puolesta."Näin puhui Yhdysvaltain presidentinvaaleissa karvaan tappion kokenut demokraattiehdokas Hillary Clinton kampanjahenkilökunnalleen ja kannattajilleen Manhattanilla sijaitsevassa New Yorker -hotellissa keskiviikkoiltana Suomen aikaa.Hymyillen ja pitkien aplodien saattelemana lavalle saapunut Clinton myönsi Yhdysvaltojen olevan jakautuneempi kuin he olivat uskoneet ja korosti, että Trump ansaitsee amerikkalaisilta avoimen mielen ja mahdollisuuden johtaa.Hän sanoi myös toivovansa, että Trumpista tulee menestyksekäs presidentti kaikille amerikkalaisille.Clinton kiitti vuolaasti kampanjaväkeään, lahjoittajiaan ja vapaaehtoisiaan.Hän totesi tietävänsä, miten pettyneitä hänen kannattajansa ovat, ja kertoi itsekin olevansa.

Vetskapen om hur personer öppnar, delar och läser dokument som skickas via mejl kan göra företags sälj- och marknadsavdelningar mer effektiva.Det anser bolaget Attach NTL som har skapat ett analysverktyg som visar just det.De flesta har hört om att man spåra mejl men vi vill ta det ett steg längre och spåra dokument.För när du gör en affär eller har någon form av företagskonversation så är det i slutändan innehållet i de bifogade dokumenten som du bryr dig om snarare än mejlen, säger Attachs vd Ryan Gum.Trots att bolaget inte ens har ett år på nacken har man redan lyckats attrahera riskkapitalbolaget Moor NTL och investmentbolaget Recapex NTL som investerare.Vi kom i kontakt med Attach genom att våra andra bolag, som Universal Avenue, använde deras tjänst , säger Andy Johnston, investerare på Moor.
