Microsoft's slow rollout of the full suite of Azure tools in the UK has taken another step forwards today, with Automation arriving in both of its UK regions.Redmond says Azure Automation offers users a way to, well, automate the more tedious manual tasks that need to be repeated when managing a cloud and enterprise environment, by creating runbooks of automated processes.Admins can create, monitor, deploy, and maintain resources in their Azure, on-premises, or third-party cloud environments, by using what Redmond reckons is a "highly scalable and reliable process execution and desired state configuration engines".Although availability was announced today, Microsoft hadn't updated its website as of publication to show the service's pricing in the UK regions.At the moment a number of services remain unavailable for the UK West and South regions.Data residency is one of the key concerns of British businesses when it comes to moving to Azure, especially those in the financial and health sectors.

Facebook s chief executive, Mark Zuckerberg, appeared in court to testify on behalf of the social media giant s virtual reality company Oculus Rift on Tuesday, as it was accused of stealing trade secrets from Id Software, maker of the Doom and Quake games.He characterized the plaintiffs as opportunists: It s pretty common when you announce a big deal that people just come out of the woodwork and claim they own some part of the deal.We re disappointed that another company is using wasteful litigation to attempt to take credit for technology that it did not have the vision, expertise or patience to build, an Oculus spokesperson told the Guardian.Representatives from Zenimax media, owner of Id and chief plaintiff, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.Zenimax alleges that Oculus founder Palmer Luckey and Id co-founder John Carmack – now chief technical officer at Oculus – tweaked the software that operates the Oculus while Carmack was still under contract at Id and then destroyed evidence of the collaboration.Luckey is also accused of using Zenimax games to promote the Rift during its Kickstarter campaign without permission.

Gun violence moves through a city the way a virus moves the body: predictably, but with uncanny precision.The authors, Yale sociology professor and Chicago native Andrew Papachristos, and Harvard students Ben Green and Thibault Morel, studied nine years of gun violence data from Chicago, totaling over 13,000 shootings.The arrest records, along with the info on gun violence, were sourced from the Chicago Police Department the dataset excluded suicide, accidental discharges and police shootings .The researchers concluded that bullets follow a path of familiarity, spreading in a pattern resembling a virus.Gang violence looks more like a blood-borne pathogen than it does a flu, per say, Papachristos told Gizmodo.So, per his example, a trip to the 7-Eleven turns deadly for Individual A because he arrives with Individual B, who has beef with rival gang members already present when they arrive.

Instead of building and designing bomb-laden autonomous drones, or humanoid robots like ATLAS who are probably going to overthrow humanity in a couple of years, researchers should be inventing robots like the Frobot vending machine that only exists to serve up frozen yogurt.The Frobot isn t the first all-in-one machine designed to serve up frozen treats.Other companies have tried to automate restaurants like Pinkberry by completely re-inventing how frozen yogurt is made and served, but with little success to date as a result of over-complicating the process, resulting in expensive machines that are hard to maintain.So what does the Frobot do differently?If you ve ever ordered a soft serve ice cream cone from an Ikea or a McDonald s, the machines responsible for those tasty treats are secretly hiding inside the Frobot.It just replaces the hourly worker who served you your cone with an automated process, so to order a bowl of frozen yogurt you just need to make your selection from a streamlined touchscreen UI, and swipe your debit or credit card.
