The Pro will go up against Microsoft s own upgraded console, a new Xbox One currently dubbed Project Scorpio.Scorpio has the edge on the specification sheet, but the PS4 Pro's opening salvo is that is arrives in November this year, a whole 12 months ahead of Scorpio s scheduled release, and at £349 Scorpio is expected to cost considerably more .PlayStation s global head of marketing and sales Jim Ryan is bullish about Sony's ability to build an advanced machine at such a price and still make a profit.One aspect of the machine that surprised and disappointed many commentators is the lack of a 4K Blu-Ray drive able to play ultra-high definition discs.While the current amount of content is limited, admits Ryan, the number of 4K shows from Netflix such as Narcos and Luke Cage, should increase in line with the growing popularity of 4K televisions.However, it is still some way from being the standard, while HDR high dynamic range , an imaging technique that improves colour and contrast, is still in its nascent stage for TVs.

Samsung Galaxy Note 7 after sustaining fire damage from its battery Twitter Last week, Samsung recalled roughly 2.5 million smartphones after it was discovered that at least 35 of the devices had spontaneously burst into flames.But don t worry, if you d like to bring your Galaxy Note 7 onto a flight, the FAA still hasn t decided whether it should ban the devices on planes.The agency is thinking about it, however.Tonight, the FAA finally told us that it s still working on exploring the issue but that no final decision has been made.If the device is recalled by the manufacturer, airline crew and passengers will not be able to bring recalled batteries or electronics that contain recalled batteries in the cabin of an aircraft, or in carry-on and checked baggage.

It was a scary holiday weekend at the box office, with last week s champion Don t Breathe reigning supreme once again across the four-day span.Director Fede Alvarez s thriller stayed strong in its second week, and led a long list of returning films that raked in the lion s share of holiday ticket sales.The film, which follows a group of would-be thieves who discover that the blind man they tried to rob has some deadly secrets, is now the first horror movie since 2014 s Ouija to win the weekend box office for two weeks straight.It was a relatively good holiday weekend for second-place finisher Suicide Squad, too.The supervillain team-up movie moved past 2013 s Man of Steel both domestically and worldwide to become the second-highest grossing film in the studio s DC Comics cinematic universe also known as the DC Extended Universe .Suicide Squad is now just $30 million shy of the mark set by franchise leader Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice in U.S. theaters, but $200 million shy of the worldwide total for Dawn of Justice.

Many readers may be familiar with the term robotic process automation RPA , a technology whose software robots are changing the corporate workplace by mimicking employee task activities across internal and web-based applications.For those just getting acquainted with this new type of automation, key points to keep in mind include:Speed: Robots complete tasks far faster than their human predecessor;Productivity: robots are free of human error and work 24/7;Scalability, robots can be quickly ramped up or down to match work fluctuations;Compliance, robots generate full audit trails.Perhaps most significantly, software robots are implemented on the presentation layer where human actions reside so underlying applications and IT infrastructure are untouched.Therefore, deployments are faster, far less expensive and much less risky than typical IT automation projects.But what s often overlooked is how the overhang of legacy systems hobbles ERP effectiveness.With age measured in decades and characterized by outdated programming languages, architecture and hardware, legacy systems are also generally unsupported by contemporary ERP software.But, despite these serious deficiencies, it s common to see large corporations depend upon them to play important operational roles.These roles persist because this old software either delivers critical functionality that business users have tweaked over the years, or it brings that functionality from mergers or acquisitions.It doesn t take long for aggressive companies to wind up with dozens of incompatible, poorly documented, legacy systems from acquired or merged competitors.They re rarely integrated with ERP systems and they re not scheduled for replacement because either possibility would be too expensive, time-consuming and risky for the company.When legacy functionality lacks ERP integration, the company suffers from incomplete end-to-end process automation.

De flesta som har försökt hitta nya appar på App Store har märkt att det kan vara lite som att hitta en nål i en höstack, eller kanske snarare en guldklimp i en gödselstack.Sökfunktionen har lämnat en del övrigt att önska, och upptäckbarheten för appar som inte uppmärksammas av Apple är inte direkt hög.Ett av problemen är att det helt enkelt finns så otroligt många appar, och många av dem är gamla och har inte uppdaterats på länge.I många fall fungerar de inte längre eller fungerar bara på vissa IOS-prylar.Apple har nu skickat ut nya riktlinjer för utvecklare och meddelar samtidigt att företaget kommer börja gå igenom äldre appar och sålla bort övergivna och trasiga appar.Utvecklare kommer få en chans att uppdatera dessa innan de tas bort.

In what seems to be a huge turnaround, Apple CEO Tim Cook says the company plans to bring back billions of dollars in profit to the U.S. next year.Cook s statement, made during an interview with RTE radio Thursday, contradicts his previous public statements on the issue: He has said for years that U.S. corporate taxes are too high, and that the Silicon Valley company wouldn t be repatriating profit until its home country changed its tax code.Right now I would forecast that we repatriate next year, Cook said, saying that the company has provisioned several billion for that purpose.The interview with Irish radio was about this week s European Commission judgment, which found that Ireland s tax arrangements with Apple were illegal.The commission found that Apple had paid as little as 0.005 percent to 1 percent in taxes there, and ordered Ireland to collect the equivalent of $14.5 billion in back taxes.Cook said Apple will appeal the decision, which he called maddening.Ireland — whose low corporate tax rates are a lure to other multinationals such as Google and Facebook — may also appeal the commission s decision.The decision has rankled the United States, which wants its share of the tax pie.After all, U.S. corporations were holding more than $2 trillion in profit overseas in 2014, according to a 2015 study by Citizens for Tax Justice and the U.S. Public Interest Research Group Education Fund.

According to Florian Mettetal- A growth hacker finds a strategy within the parameters of a scalable and repeatable method for growth, driven by product and inspired by data.Growth hacking s goal are based in marketing but driven by product instincts.A growth hacker lives at the intersection of data, product, and marketing.A growth hacker lives within the product team and has a technical vocabulary to implement what he or she wants.The end goal of every growth hacker is to build a self-perpetuating marketing machine that reaches millions by its self; however, growth hacking is a process, not a secret book of ideas.Growth strategies cannot be easily copied and pasted from product to product.

If you've ever moved to a new city or found yourself in the market for a new doctor, then you've likely faced the challenge of transferring your medical records.For all the work that's been put into health-information technology systems, in 2014 only 34% of doctors surveyed were very satisfied or satisfied with the ones they were using.Each hospital had its own electronic health-records system, but connecting those, at the moment, is almost impossible.And they're still being described as "clunky," or stuck in the 1990s compared to the flashy consumer technology that we use every day.Those two shortcomings are what healthcare experts hope changes, and soon.When it comes to innovating electronic health records, "We're at the tip of the iceberg," Dr. Robert Robbins, CEO and president of the Texas Medical Center, told Business Insider.A mandatory push into technologyIn 2009, Congress passed the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health HITECH Act, which set up incentives for hospitals to get off pen-and-paper charts and onto electronic systems.Over the next six years, hospitals could buy these information-technology systems, implant them into their hospitals, and receive money in return for doing it.And this did make a big shift in how many people had an electronic health record EHR ."A lot of companies had to do compliance, so innovation got slowed down," said Jessica S. Ancker, a professor of healthcare policy and research at Weill Cornell Medical College.Getting doctors to use EHRs and hospitals to share dataWhile that innovation had to pump the brakes, that left room for two shortcomings, Ancker said: usability and interoperability.These aren't technologies that doctors are flocking to.But user experience just hasn't been as high a priority, for better or worse, for those building the systems.
