街头共享单车数量明显少了 “禁投令”该不该放松 – Tencent TechWhat happened: Alibaba-backed bike rental company Hello Transtech was summoned by the Shanghai government in January for illegally placing new bikes in downtown areas like Jingansi District of the city while the ban to place more bikes in the city is still in place.The company has been ordered to suspend the move and withdraw the illegally placed bikes.Hello Transtech said the reason for the “misplacement” of the bikes was the company’s unfamiliarity with the locations in question by the company’s operations and maintenance staff.The company said it will cooperate with government departments in the future.Why it’s important: To curb the negative side effects of rental bikes on local transportation management, Shanghai placed a halt on new bikes in the city in August 2017.
A new virtual tool could help planners choose the best places to install bikes lanes in cities.The data-based tool builds on previous research at the University of Waterloo that validated the safety benefits of bike lanes for cyclists and motorists.Collected using sensors and a handlebar camera as researchers cycled hundreds of kilometres in Kitchener-Waterloo, Ontario, the data showed bike lanes virtually eliminate vehicles getting too close to cyclists when they pass them."In many cases, they just don't feel they can leave more space because of the geometry of the road and the proximity of other vehicles."On four-lane roads, unsafe passing dropped from almost six per cent with no bike lanes to .5 per cent with bikes lanes.One metre of separation was used to distinguish safe passing from unsafe passing in the study because it is a legal requirement in some jurisdictions in North America.
It centers around the evolution of “Cellular IoT.” It’s a four-point strategy and they hope it will create new capabilities with their 4G and 5G networks, as well as help them tap growth opportunities from industry digitalization.Cellular IoT is a technology that connects things to the Internet over wireless networks and smartphones.As 5G comes to reality, Cellular IoT will be increasingly important going forward for networks, industries and companies, not just in wireless but other industries as well.This space is still very young, which means there are plenty of growth opportunities.The four segments of Ericsson’s Cellular IoT plan are what they call:5G mobile broadband will play an increasingly larger and important role going forward, offering faster data rates and lower latency in each of these sectors.
He's pushing the under-construction SpaceX Starship as the way to get humans to the Red Planet.It seems like Mars might be crushing right back after a strange and suggestive Twitter exchange Friday.An anonymous Twitter account named Mars (with the handle @4thFromOurStar) tweeted a message saying it wants only Elon to move to Mars, implying no other humans will do.Musk replied to the planet with, "I want you too baby."He dropped a classic, but not classy, internet flirtation line: "Send me hot pics and I'll be right over."So Mars did, tweeting a kissy face emoji with a perspective view of Gale Crater and Mount Sharp culled from the Science Photo Library.
At industry conferences, every new product seems like it’d be a perfect fit for your organization.Marketers have to be able to ignore the noise from fellow marketers and instead focus on what actually matters: potential buyers.The rise of the internet in the late 90s, as we all know, revolutionized marketing.and Ask.com exploded, providing marketers with an unprecedented concept: inbound prospects.Soon, the CRM platforms we all know so well came into existence and gained traction.The problem is not that we’re marketing a lot to consumers, it’s that we’re marketing to other marketers instead of our buyers.
After we broke the news in November that Oculus’s former CEO had left the company partially due to disagreements on the company’s PC hardware direction, including the cancellation of a high-end “Rift 2” in favor of a more iterative “Rift S” headset, new details are emerging that confirm Facebook’s directional shift for its flagship headset.UploadVR found some supporting files that back up my November report that Oculus is releasing a new headset with inside-out tracking called the Rift S https://t.co/9wK02Pr80n— Lucas Matney (@lucasmtny) February 5, 2019User interface code discovered by UploadVR seems to confirm that Oculus is actively readying their software for the “Rift S” hardware.Details including the “Rift S” name and the fact that the headset will be powered by onboard cameras rather than external sensors were apparent from code that referenced options to change settings on the “Rift S cameras.” The report also details that the displays could function differently and utilize a software-based approach for adjusting for the distance between a user’s eyes.We’ve reached out to Facebook for comment.
Not all markets are equal, which sometimes means that not all markets are given the same opportunities to access the same devices.Expensive premium devices are sometimes withheld from those labeled as “growing economies” while more budget-friendly entry-level products are unavailable in “major markets”.Sometimes, though, those products eventually make their way, but only after some time has passed.Just like the Lenovo Tab E10 Android tablet that just silently popped up in the US, months after it could have made a difference.OK, maybe it might not have made a difference at all.Of the five tablets Lenovo announced out of the blue last August, the Tab E10 had the distinction of being the largest of the company’s low-tier offering.
Between display and search ads, and sponsored Instagram posts, studies have shown that I have seen hundreds of digital ads today.“All you have to bring is your love of everything.”That commercial was on heavy rotation back when the resort was still called Mount Airy Lodge.I hadn’t seen the jingle in decades, though I could still recite every single word.“Despite the billions of dollars in investment in digital platforms and ad-tech and data management platforms and 1:1 ad targeting, it still remains to be seen whether these digital ads connect emotionally or spur memory of the product,” he says.“‘Old-school’ delivery devices like TV and outdoor do a better job of instilling memory.”
Line Corporation, the company behind the dominant chat app in Japan, Taiwan, and Thailand, announced in a filing that it is investing US$182 million into Line Pay, its mobile payments subsidiary.No other details were revealed.The move cements Line’s ambition of being becoming the dominant WeChat-like ecosystem outside of China, though it faces stiff competition in Southeast Asia’s superapp sweepstakes from Go-Jek and Grab.The investment is significant considering it made US$1.88 billion in revenue (growing 24 percent year-on-year) and US$52.7 million in losses in 2018.Like WeChat, Line is building out a wide range of content to bolster its ecosystem.These include games, jobs, manga, and ecommerce services.

We're long-time fans of Formula E here at Ars.Sure, some purists will whine like a Hewland gearbox about the lack of internal combustion noise, but I'm sure horse racing fans made the opposite complaint at the turn of the 20th century when cars started being used in competition.Formula E has doggedly stuck with its game plan of doing motorsport differently, with all-electric cars powered by renewable energy racing in places where electric vehicles make the most sense—city centers.Electric vehicle puts in solid performance in the world’s toughest rallyNow, some of the brains behind Formula E have a new electric racing idea for us—one that's radically different from these cool-but-identical-looking single-seaters battling head to head.It's called Extreme E (agreed, not the best name), and it's an electric off-road racing series.
Car manufacturers owned by Fiat-Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) often advertise a feature named Uconnect.It sounds like it might be an easy way to hook up a trailer, or a hot new social media platform developed to dethrone Facebook, but it’s neither.The screen replaces the radio, so Uconnect’s most basic function is letting drivers choose the type of music they want to listen to.Options include Bluetooth audio streaming from a phone, an iPod, and SiriusXM satellite radio.Drivers can pair their Apple- or Android-powered smartphone to their car via Uconnect.After completing a few basic steps, they’re able to make hands-free phone calls, send text messages thanks to cloud-based voice recognition technology, and access their list of contacts.
Grab’s fundraising push continues unabated after the Southeast Asian ride-hailing firm announced that it has raised $200 million from Central Group, a retail conglomerate based in Thailand.Central’s business covers restaurants, hotels and more than 30 malls in Thailand, while it has operations in markets that include Vietnam and Indonesia.Singapore-based Grab confirmed that this deal is not part of its ongoing Series H fundraising, but is instead an investment into its Thailand-based business.Rumors of the deal were first reported by Reuters last year.Following this investment, Central said it will work with Grab in a number of areas in Thailand, including bringing its restaurants into the Grab Food service, adding Grab transportation to its physical outlets and bringing Grab’s logistics service into its businesses.Grab is under threat from Go-Jek, which expanded to Thailand at the end of 2018.

Lego itself was founded 87 years ago, and the humble bricks turn 61 this year.But until The Phantom Menace the two had never come together.Since this year is 2019 it means Lego Star Wars is about to turn 20, and to celebrate it looks like Lego is releasing a bunch of special anniversary sets.Each set comes with an updated version of a classic Lego Star Wars vehicle, plus a bunch of exclusive stuff like exclusive minifigures that retain the yellow faces that have been scrapped from recent licensed brands.Inside you have minifigures of Boba Fett, Zuckuss, 4-LOM, and Han Solo with or without carbonite.The UCS Snowspeeder is on its way out, and since the original snowspeeder set was released back in 1999 this one makes quite a bit of sense - even if the ship itself isn't nearly as iconic as the X-Wing or TIE Fighter.
Linköpingsbolaget Wematter was founded in 2014 when Robert Kniola, founder and ceo, worked as a plastkonstruktör and discovered the shortcomings of today's 3d printers.– the Prints can be very stylish, but when testing the features so crack the plastic, said Robert Kniola to the New Technology in February 2016.the Solution for Robert Kniola was to start a private company to develop a 3d printer for glass fiber reinforced plastic.Makes the world's strongest 3d printing in plasticFor the prints is used powder including the glass fibre-reinforced polyamide, or Polyamide 11, a bio-based materials.Labbdata from the research institute the Rise shows that the company's 3d printing in plastic - made with 3d-skrivartekniken SLS, selective laser sintering - is the strongest in the world.
