When in Rome, do as the Romans do.Or in Google's case, speak the languages they speak.Heeding that advice, Google has introduced support for nine Indian languages with its Neural Machine Translation technology, the company said in a statement to CNET.This language support will be added to products including Maps, Translate, Chrome and Gboard (Google Keyboard).Although India recognises 23 official languages, more than 400 languages are spoken in the country today, and only 20 percent of the population is fluent in English.Bridging the language barrier appears extremely important for Google if it wants to be relevant in the country.

Starring in HBO's "Silicon Valley" hasn't changed how Martin Starr or Kumail Nanjiani view social media.But as the show enters its fourth season, the two recognize that social media, particularly Twitter, has changed a lot in the last four years."A lot of times it seems like social media has devolved into people just yelling at each other and not really conversing," said Nanjiani in an interview with Business Insider.Nanjiani, an active Twitter user with over a million followers, largely tweets about politics with a little bit of the HBO show, which debuts this Sunday, thrown in.However, Nanjiani says that he's stopped paying attention to messages sent to him for his own mental health, he said.Starr, who tweets way less frequently than Nanjiani, also has a hard time tolerating what Twitter, and its fellow social networks, have become.Nanjiani originally thought the "great promise" of social media would be people of different backgrounds being able to converse with people that they wouldn't normally have access to."The flip side, and we’re seeing a lot of that, is people finding other people who agree with them and who sort of reinforce their narrow beliefs and then people just getting stronger and stronger in their beliefs and are not really having a conversation," Nanjiani said.
In some major markets, they are already second behind the Canon and with the just released alpha a9, turn the if the knife a couple of turns to spegelreflexmärkena – which is already losing sales, so it smokes on it now-a-days.But you have to start somewhere and with the new a9, the circle is closed (?20 frames per second – autofocus – means that it beats the Canon EOS 1DX Mark II and the Nikon D5.And nothing seems to have gone out over the quality of the image.technically is a9 an absolutely amazing camera for photographers who need razor-sharp action shots.20 pictures/s in rapid succession up to 241 råfiler (or 362 JPEG), 693 fokuspunkter that covers 93 per cent of the screen area, quiet and vibration-free shutter down to 1/32 000 s and the 4K video from the entire image sensor (6K-reading) is only a part of all that makes the camera interesting.

It’s a nightmare scenario straight out of a primetime drama: a child-seeking couple visits a fertility clinic to try their luck with in-vitro fertilisation, only to wind up accidentally impregnated by the wrong sperm.In a fascinating legal case out of Singapore, the country’s Supreme Court ruled that this situation doesn’t just constitute medical malpractice.The fertility clinic, the court recently ruled, must pay the parents 30% of upkeep costs for the child for a loss of ‘genetic affinity’.This can take you in all sort of fucked up directions.”In the court case in question, the couple underwent a successful IVF procedure at Thomson Medical Centre in Singapore and gave birth to a healthy baby girl in 2010.Soon, though, the couple suspected something was amiss.
FB 1.01% first launched its open-source, “Surround” 360 camera at last year’s F8 developer conference in a push to propel the 360 video ecosystem.On Tuesday, the company unveiled two smaller, more portable versions of its Surround 360 camera that can capture three-dimensional content that can be viewed in virtual reality, as well as 360 video.The cameras enable an advanced level of immersion known as “six degrees of freedom” (6Dof), which means viewers can move up and down, forward and back, and left and right to see content from different angles.Facebook prototyped the x24 and x6 cameras on-site in its Area 404 lab over the past year, from concept to hardware.While Facebook doesn't plan to sell the cameras directly, it is licensing the designs to a select group of commercial partners with the goal of launching a product to market this year.The social network's long-term vision, according to Facebook's CTO Mike Schroepfer, is to help make 360 cameras affordable and simple enough to bring to people's homes.
How much thought did you put into your current profile picture on Facebook?Probably a little more than you're willing to admit.Well, it may have been a waste of time - because it's likely that a complete stranger would have done a better job.That's the rough conclusion of a study published in the journal Cognitive Research, which compared self-selected profile pictures with those chosen by others.Six hundred and ten participants were asked to choose images of themselves that they were most, and least, likely to use on Facebook, on professional sites and on dating sites.They rated those images for a collection of different factors - attractiveness, trustworthiness, dominance, competence and confidence.
eBay Australia says it may prevent local buyers from purchasing goods from international sellers, if the government’s proposed GST changes go ahead.The Australian Government has proposed alterations to the federal Goods and Services Tax (GST) legislation, which would force all online sales to incur the additional 10-percent charge that currently applies to products purchased locally.In a submission to a senate inquiry on the changes, eBay Australia’s vice president Jooman Park has stated that “the most likely outcome” of this government legislation going ahead is for eBay “to prevent Australians from buying from foreign sellers”.Park has listed several reasons for opposing the tax alongside the block, with eBay stating that it believes the tax would not end up helping physical stores or raise much revenue, as buyers would shift to less legitimate online retailers that dodge the tax.The company also says that the complexities of the tax would mean that separate goods in a single box would attract two different types of tax for goods over or below $1,000, and that it thinks the July 1 rollout date is “completely unrealistic”.A likely reason for the company’s opposition is that the tax would treat businesses like eBay as the seller themselves, whereas Jooman Park argues that its site is merely a platform and that eBay doesn’t handle the goods or the payments.

Once overlooked, hotel executives are now taking notice of Airbnb.The short-term rental company was dismissed by one Marriott executive as recently as December, saying the company was “not really making headway in the corporate environment, which is really our bread-and-butter business.”According to documents obtained by The New York Times, the American Hotel and Lodging Association (AHLA) — a group representing the $1.1 trillion hotel industry — has a multi-faceted plan to take down what it has since come to recognize as its biggest threat.It started with two seemingly-unrelated actions.The short-term rental company drew the attention of the FTC last year after senators began an investigation into how Airbnb affects soaring home prices.Later that year New York Governor Andrew M. Cuomo signed a bill imposing sizable fines on any Airbnb hosts caught breaking local housing rules.
My wife and I cut the cord many years ago, and have survived ever since on discs, downloads, streaming media, and over-the-air (OTA) programming.OTA has been a surprisingly rich source of enjoyable shows, especially from our local PBS stations and alternative standard-definition channels from network-affiliated broadcasters.Because digital video recorders (DVRs) shifted a few years ago to being mostly a commodity item offered by a programming provider like Xfinity or Dish, the market for standalone units shrunk.During 2016, macOS choices increased from one—eyeTV 3, now from Geniatech—to four.All the DVR software I examined supports these models; SiliconDust’s DVR offering includes support for a fourth, discontinued model.The Extend has built-in on-the-fly H.264 compression, which produces a dramatically smaller file.
In order to tie your shoes, there's a simple knot that almost all of us learn how to make when we're small children: a "criss-cross and tuck" part, followed by a "loop-and-pull" part.That simple knot has three strong advantages to it over most other types:It effectively takes up the rest of the length of the shoelaces, so they don't drag on the ground.And it forms a relatively strong knot, unlikely to come undone during the course of a day of moderate walking.Of course, many of us have experiences where it takes only a few minutes of moderate walking to undo our efforts of tying our shoes.One has to do with the physics that goes into the forces that walking provides, but the other is a detail you've probably never noticed before.
Flygplansmodellen Boeing 787 – även kallad Dreamliner – kommer snart att byggas med 3d-utskrivna komponenter.Komponenterna består av en titanlegering.Tillverkningen sköts av norska bolaget Norsk Titanium.Norsk Titanium har fått fyra olika komponenter godkända av FAA, den amerikanska luftfartsmyndigheten.Titanlegeringar är dyrare än aluminium, men genom att ersätta traditionella metoder med additiv tillverkning kan kostnaden bli lägre.Mycket lägre, enligt Norsk Titanium själva.
Appleinsider rapporterar att Apple, trots att de redan öppnat en butik i Mexico City, redan smider planer för nästa.Tydligen handlar det om en butik som ska bli deras ”flaggskepp” i staden – inte helt olikt den de har vid World Trade Center i New York City.Informationen kommer från en källa "nära projektet”, som även uppger att Apple kommer att ta över en stor butikslokal i Antara Fashion Hall.Ytan är dubbelt så stor som första Mexiko-butiken som finns i affärscentrumet Centro Santa Fe.När butiken öppnar är oklart, men enligt uppgifterna kan det dröja ett bra tag.

A court just banned Uber from using its apps in Italy — yes, all of Italy.The court ruled in favor of the country’s taxi drivers — who filed the suit — claiming Uber was “unfair competition.” Now Uber can’t use it’s apps — including UberBlack, Uber LUX, X, and Select — and it can’t promote or advertise itself at all within the country.For all intents and purposes, Uber is banned in Italy.This is the cherry on the sundae that is Uber’s terrible week: First, a judge came down on it for allegedly dragging its feet in the Waymo lawsuit.Second, one of its drivers filed suit against it for using software to defraud employees and customers.Uber’s not having a lot of legal luck, apparently.
