Ericsson redovisar en förlust före skatt på 12,8 miljarder kronor för första kvartalet.Resultatet är sämre än väntat och företaget flaggar nu för en strukturförändring.– Det är en tuff marknad och operatörerna är utmanade, säger koncernchefen Börje Ekholm till TT.Förlusten före skatt på 12,8 miljarder kan jämföras med vinsten på 3 miljarder kronor motsvarande period 2016.Resultatet är otillfredsställande men stabilt, säger Börje Ekholm.Det befintliga kostnads- och effektivitetsprogrammet ger inte tillräckliga effekter, säger han och flaggar för strukturella förändringar.

We’re on the cusp of the summer-movie season, and it's going to come fast.Last year, the big complaint about summer movies was that too many sequels and reboots turned out to be duds.And though you will surely get some of that this summer, on paper at least, this batch seems promising.You have highly anticipated sequels like “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2,” “Alien: Covenant” (the sequel to “Prometheus”), and “Despicable Me 3,” and on the reboot side, you have Tom Cruise resurrecting “The Mummy,” The Rock flexing his muscles in “Baywatch,” and Tom Holland as Spidey in “Spider-Man: Homecoming.”And let’s not forget “Wonder Woman,” Christopher Nolan’s war movie “Dunkirk,” and Luc Besson’s gorgeous-looking sci-fi epic “Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets.”Here are 35 movies coming out this summer that you need to se: View As:

They’re crowded and noisy and everyone is grumpy because they’re late or hungover or both.You wait in line for everything, eat bad food, and invariably drink too much.And yet Jakob Schnetz loves trade shows.As crazy as it sounds, the German photographer has attended around 25 in the past five years and chronicled them all in his series Trade Show.His obsession started with EuroTier, a livestock show where he found a plethora of farming equipment, live animals, and at least one guy in a cow costume.“It was just this feeling of a compressed small artificial world,” Schnetz says.

Microsoft is offering IT pros some new guidance on when they can expect major feature updates for Windows 10, Office 365's client applications, and System Center Configuration Manager.Office and Windows are slated to receive two major patches per year, one in March and the other in September.SCCM will be updated in time with those releases to facilitate deployments.That means the next major update to Windows 10, codenamed Redstone 3, is due out in September.On top of that, Microsoft confirmed that each feature release of Windows 10 will be supported for 18 months after it is first made generally available.The move is supposed to provide additional consistency for large customers who want to plan out deployments around Microsoft's major update plans.

It’s got the same gorgeous design, the same best-ever display, the same awesome camera, same processor, memory, storage, features...it’s just smaller.The display is 5.8 inches instead of 6.2, and the battery is 3,000 mAh instead of 3,500.That means the problems with the S8 are apparent here as well, namely an unbelievably bad fingerprint sensor location and the lackluster debut of Samsung’s Bixby AI assistant.The Galaxy S8 has a smaller display than the S8 , whose lower power requirements help to offset the roughly 17 percent smaller battery.It’s improved a bit since its debut on the ill-fated Galaxy Note7, and while you do need to use your fingerprint for some apps, unlocking your phone and signing in to Samsung apps with your eyes is fast, secure, and reliable enough to greatly mitigate the disastrous fingerprint scanner placement.This one is no different: peak brightness, contrast, color accuracy, color gamut, sharpness—it leads the pack in just about every metric.

Ten years after he bought the beachfront Casa Malibu Inn for $20 million, Oracle founder Larry Ellison is just about ready to unveil the first in a new group of ultra-high-end luxury retreats.He's doing it with a trio of high-profile partners: Robert De Niro, chef Nobu Matsuhisa, and film producer Meir Teper.Dubbed Nobu Ryokan Malibu, a new 16-room hotel now stands on the property Ellison bought a decade ago.It's the first in what is being called the Nobu Ryokan Collection, a new group of luxury retreats in exotic destinations around the world, created by Ellison and the creative minds behind the Nobu restaurants.The experience, which is modeled after a traditional Japanese inn, won't come cheap — according to Curbed, rooms will start around $1,100 a night, though that rate could go up to $2,000 during "preferred" times.Let's take a look inside the hotel, which opens April 28.

With the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 finally ready for market, it's time for a round of smartphone updates from the usual suspects.The chip debuted in the Galaxy S8 (full review coming soon), and Xiaomi is now featuring the 835 in the Xiaomi Mi 6, the new flagship for the company's home market of China.Unlike the stunning Xiaomi Mi Mix, a slim-bezel "concept" phone from Xiaomi that the company actually sold, the Mi 6 is pretty boring to look at.Xiaomi has fallen back to its standard "do what Apple is doing" design language, with thick bezels on the top and bottom of the phone and a front-mounted fingerprint sensor.It gets a lot harder to complain when you see the price, though: $362 (RMB 2,499).Yep, for less than half of the price of a Galaxy S8, Xiaomi will sell you a phone with a faster 2.45GHz Snapdragon 835, 6GB of RAM (2GB more than the S8), 64GB of storage, and a 3350 mAh battery (also more than the S8).

If the sci-fi look of most neckband headphones is off-putting to you, V-Moda’s Forza Metallo headphones offer a stylish alternative.While some of V-Moda’s recent releases have been upgrades of existing products, like the Crossfade II Wireless headphones, others like the Remix Bluetooth speaker have seen the company moving in new directions.That is the case with the company’s newest release, the Forza Metallo Wireless neckband-style Bluetooth headphones.V-Moda calls the Forza Metallo the world’s first ergonomic neckband headphones.What that means is that using the company’s TrapLock titanium cable, the neckband conforms to the shape of your next and shoulders.While some other neckband-style headphones can’t help but stand out, the Forza Metallo were designed to stay low-profile, and can even fit under a shirt collar.

(Reuters) — General Motors Co said on Thursday it will add more than 1,100 jobs in California over five years at its Cruise Automation unit to boost its self-driving efforts after receiving $8 million in state tax credits.The largest U.S. automaker said it is investing $14 million in a new research and development facility in San Francisco that will more than double its current space.GM acquired Cruise Automation for $1 billion in March 2016 as part of its effort to build autonomous vehicles.GM is testing more than 50 Chevrolet Bolt electric vehicles with self-driving technology on public roads in San Francisco, the Detroit metropolitan area and Scottsdale, Arizona.“Running our autonomous vehicle program as a startup is giving us the speed we need to continue to stay at the forefront of development of these technologies and the market applications,” said GM Chief Executive Mary Barra in a statement.When GM acquired Cruise in 2016, the company had been working to develop hardware and software that could be installed in a vehicle to enable the car to pilot itself on a highway, without the driver steering or braking.Traditional auto companies have been making major investments in ride-sharing and technology companies as industry executives worry that the century-old business of building and selling cars that people drive themselves may shift rapidly in the coming years.California has aggressively courted companies to invest in self-driving research and development.A state filing said GM had 485 direct employees in California last year and will have more than 1,640 by 2021.“GM’s investment is further proof that California is leading the nation in the design, engineering and deployment of autonomous vehicles,” said Panorea Avdis, director of the California Governor’s Office of Business and Economic Development.(Reporting by David Shepardson; Editing by Leslie Adler and Bill Rigby)

Instagram’s copycat moves have paid off.Instagram Stories are disappearing slideshows of videos and photos that are near-identical to Snapchat Stories, down to the name.Instagram Stories got off to a great start: racking up its first 100 million daily users in October 2016, just two months after they debuted at the top of the feeds of Instagram’s 500 million users.By comparison, Snapchat had about 161 million daily users when the company filed for IPO, just over three years after the company introduced its version of Stories in October 2013.Even though Instagram Stories now seem to be more popular than Snapchat, it doesn’t seem like the imitation game is over.Instagram also announced new creative tools for pinning stickers into videos and creating your own selfie stickers.

Apple has a major advantage over Google in the world's most populated country.The Cupertino firm is now the biggest Western software seller in China, according to an analyst note from Macquarie sent to investors this morning.Citing internal analysis and App Annie numbers, Ben Schachter, Ed Alter, and David Gibson said the company earned around $6 billion (£4.77 billion) from Chinese App Store sales in 2016.They said that could more than double to $16 billion (£13 billion) by 2020 if Apple just maintained its current share of the market.They added, though, that Apple was only likely to get bigger as a rising Chinese middle-class buy more iPhones.Google doesn't sell apps in ChinaTo be clear, Apple can take the crown of being "the biggest Western software seller" in China because most Google services are banned from the country.While Chinese handset makers — like Xiaomi — rely on Android, users have to buy apps from third-party app stores operated locally.Apple's App Store has been in China since 2010.So while Android is overall bigger than iOS in China, the ecosystem's fragmentation is an advantage for Apple.As the analysts wrote: "Android is fragmented, against only one iOS — while all Android app stores combined (Google Play plus third-party stores) is likely to remain larger than iOS going forward, we expect [Apple] to retain the single largest app store with iOS."Apple can maintain a Chinese presence because it's willing to kowtow to local censorship rules.In January this year, Apple pulled the New York Times app from the Chinese App Store after a government request.Still, it looks like Google's working on the problem.According to a report from The Information, Google may partner with Chinese player NetEase to bring Google Play back to China.Get the latest Google stock price here.NOW WATCH: Ocean ‘dead zones’ exist — and there are more of them than scientists thoughtLoading video...

The more we hear about the Xbox One's upcoming Scorpio update, the more it sounds like Microsoft's effort to upend the idea of distinct console generations completely.The Xbox One ecosystem seems to be morphing into a PC-like space where one piece of software can run at different levels of detail depending on the power (and price) of the hardware it's running on.In an in-depth interview with Gamasutra published today, Microsoft's Phil Spencer gave some strong indications that Microsoft is headed in this direction with the Xbox platform.Spencer cited games like Destiny, Call of Duty, Minecraft, and GTA V to highlight how the biggest titles are starting to maintain their popularity across hardware updates and how Xbox needs to accommodate that."Because we said, 'OK, there's gonna be games that are going to live multiple generations.And our software platform really has to service a developer's need to service an ongoing set of users.'
