It s been nearly eight years since Leica announced a proper successor to the M9 and now we re finally getting it with the M10 and from the looks of it, the wait has been worth it.The Leica M10 features a new 24MP full-frame CMOS sensor – a significant step up from the 18MP sensor in the Leica M9.On top of the resolution bump, Leica claims users should see improved dynamic range and image quality on par to the Leica Q.Thanks to the new Maestro II image processor, Leica s latest flagship camera supports ISO 100-50,000.Users can also capture images at 5fps for up to 30 RAW or 100 JPEG images at full resolution.Unfortunately, the M10 offers no video features, but this is par for the course from Leica.

Tim Cooks vänliga chefsstil är en av de största anledningarna till att Apple var så tråkiga under 2016.Jämfört med Steve Jobs – vars filosofi var att uttrycka starka känslor – är Tim Cook lika lugn som en insjö.Men där Tim Cook enbart tycks bygga på befintliga produkter, revolutionerade Jobs teknikindustrin med en mängd innovationer – exempelvis Ipod, Iphone och Imac.Och det är till stor del tack vare temperamentet, anser Bob Burrough."När Tim Cook tog över jobbade han hårt på att eliminera konflikter inom Cupertinos väggar och gjorde på kuppen de anställda mindre passionerade."Uttalandet kommer som ett svar på en tweet skriven av Apple-analytikern Horrace Dediu.

It has been 10 years since the launch of the iPhone.Ten years ago wind and solar power were considered environmentally and ethically desirable, but were still relatively high cost compared to incumbent fossil fuel generation.Not only do renewables now present a more favourable business case, they are also dramatically changing the way people interact with energy and its sources - especially wind and solar.According to analysis by financial advisers Lazard, the cost to build a utility-scale solar photovoltaic plant fell by about 80 percent from 2009 to 2014 while wind projects dropped by 60 percent.Based on what we ve seen at Mainstream Renewable Power, he is absolutely right.More and more countries are fast-tracking the transition to renewable energy in order to assure the sustainability of their environment and their economies.

The Apple TV is, without question, one of the best media streaming devices in the world.It supports nearly all of the top streaming apps out there, and now the latest version also supports Sir, which completely changes the viewing experience for the better.We love voice search and being able to say things like what did he say?for a quick rewind, or skip ahead two minutes instead of fumbling around with a traditional remote.There is one thing about the Apple TV s design that s pretty annoying, however: the box is so tiny and light that it always seems to shift around.In fact, a heavy HDMI cable can pull it right off of your entertainment center.

To many, eBay serves as a convenient conduit for shifting unwanted goods and buying items at a fraction of their MSRP.But the online shopping emporium has long been a popular platform for fake products, with luxury goods such as fashion accessories and jewelry high on eBay counterfeiters agenda.To counter this, eBay has revealed plans to introduce a new authentication program later this year, with a broad focus on high-end goods and launching initially as a trial with fashion items such as handbags.As we know, this particular set of inventory fashion causes some consumers apprehension in their purchase journey, explained Laura Chambers, vice president of eBay consumer selling.Based on our learnings, we ll look to broaden the service out further.Dubbed eBay Authenticate, the new service will be powered by a network of professional authenticators, and is ultimately designed to encourage buyers to part with cash on expensive items, safe in the knowledge that the merchandise is legitimate.This service is designed to help quell some of those concerns — and in turn — enhance the opportunity for our sellers to get top-dollar for their items.

Alexa is going to at least own the living room, and there s a good bet that it s going to own the whole home.But that s not stopping RnD64, a small company building a small little black voice-powered black egg, from trying to get in the kitchen first.Hello Egg works as a cooking assistant, with a few extra flourishes — like a friendly little eye to keep you company on a small reflective screen.That screen will show you techniques and videos as well as the typical recipe instructions over voice.After all, you ll probably want to know how to properly cut open an avocado before swinging your knife straight into it.The idea is that while the Echo is good at going through recipes along with a lot of other things, Hello Egg can nail down the kitchen with a bunch of specific use cases and features.

The modern day misery of having to sometimes click on an X to make a popup about cookies disappear could soon come to an end thanks to our former friends in the EU, as new guidelines on web cookie use could end the need for every site in the world to individually beg to be allowed permission to stalk us a bit.The changes are part of a wider look at privacy requirements the European Commission is engaging in, and could see the individual site notification replaced by one global option -- a checkbox in your browser, perhaps.The proposal explains the simplification with: "New rules will allow users to be more in control of their settings, providing an easy way to accept or refuse the tracking of cookies and other identifiers in case of privacy risks.The proposal clarifies that no consent is needed for non-privacy intrusive cookies improving internet experience e.g.to remember shopping cart history .Cookies set by a visited website counting the number of visitors to that website will no longer require consent."
