Smith A few minutes after SpaceX launched one if its self-landing Falcon 9 rockets on June 28, 2015, it exploded into a rain of debris over the Atlantic Ocean.NASA had a bunch of cargo riding on top of the rocket, and it tallied its losses at about $112 million.Meanwhile, SpaceX — founded by tech entrepreneur Elon Musk — lost tens of millions it had invested in the launch itself.
You don t get to keep the games you get as part of Nintendo s Switch Online service.Nintendo is beginning a paid online gaming network for Switch that is similar to Xbox Live Gold and PlayStation Plus, except it has a few key differences.Switch Online will begin charging a monthly fee in the fall, and active members will get access to online multiplayer, a party system, and a monthly game download.For those downloads, Nintendo is offering up Nintendo Entertainment System and Super Nintendo games with newly-added online play at no additional charge.But once the month is over, everyone will lose access to the game unless they purchase it.That s a rather restrictive bonus considering that both Sony and Microsoft have a similar feature that gives players a handful of far more modern games at no extra charge, and you always have access to those games as long as you maintain an active subscription to either PlayStation Plus or Xbox Live Gold.Nintendo still hasn t said how much Switch Online will cost.If it is significantly less expensive than those competing platforms, than maybe the company can get away with this.But, regardless of the price, the publisher is missing the point of a free games for subscribers feature.
Ett par kala, vita väggar hemma i familjen Blomqvists vardagsrum - där börjar historien om e-handelssuccén Desenio.Men vi hittade bara dyra och tråkiga alternativ, så då snickrade vi ihop några själva istället , säger Helena Blomqvist.Det här var 2009 och det hade börjat bubbla en del bland vissa e-handelsbolag men konkurrensen var fortfarande inte så tuff.Min plan var att dra igång en webbshop men jag visste inte inom vilken nisch och det var i det läget som idén att sälja ljuddämpande tavlor dök upp , säger Martin Blomqvist.När vi började med posters 2014 fanns det inte så många aktörer på marknaden men sedan dess har trenden blivit allt starkare och starkare.Att byta ut planscherna du har i ram och kanske köpa några nya kuddar är ett snabbt och prisvärt sätt att byta inredningen i ditt hem och det upptäcker allt fler , säger Helena Blomqvist.

Dell Technologies' 140,000 staffers have been wincing in anticipation for the expected 2,000-3,000 layoffs after the $67bn EMC acquisition completed, and now the wait is over.The axe is swinging and heads have begun to roll.A person close to the events told us: "Almost 80 people have been terminated from the Hopkinton location and there is more to come."We were first alerted to this possibility just before the new year by an industry insider.He said three rounds of layoffs were coming.Late last year Dell enterprise systems head David Goulden reorganised the servers, storage and networking divisions... and some execs left.
The CES 2017 technology show in Las Vegas has closed, packed up, and the audience has gone home.Yet that hasn t stopped CyberPowerPC from revealing just one more new product as an encore performance: A new VR-ready desktop fine-tuned for the Oculus Rift headset.The price for the desktop is a mere $499, which is great considering that the full Oculus Rift setup costs a hefty $800 on its own.Instead, the company is only serving up a $1,100 bundle through Best Buy, as seen here.For that price, customers get the VR-ready PC, a gaming keyboard, a gaming mouse, the Oculus Rift headset, one sensor, the Oculus remote, an Xbox One controller, cables, and the VR game Lucky s Tale.The new Oculus Touch controllers and second sensor are not included.
Japanese tech startup Xenoma showed its e-skin motion capture shirt at CES 2017, the big tech trade show last week in Las Vegas.The e-skin translates your body s movements into digital form, which can then be used to control a character in a video game.But the shirt can also be used to train athletes and monitor their performance — or record the movements of someone being trained in operating an industrial machine or a vehicle.And it can be used for virtual reality applications.The e-skin has 14 strain sensors strategically placed to detect the wearer s body movements that include bending, stretching, and twisting joints.The e-skin hub is placed on the chest, and it transmits sensor data via Bluetooth 4.2.The e-skin hub can record data at a rate of 60 frames per second.It has a 3-axis accelerometer, 3-axis gyro sensors, and a micro-USB port for recharging.It also has four hours of battery life.
Luxury hair care company Kerastase and tech company Withings realize this and have joined to save the day for people everywhere with high-maintenance hair.The result is the Hair Coach, a smart hairbrush that knows as much about your hair as your personal stylist.What on Earth does it do?Based on the sound, the brush can tell if your hair is dry, damaged, or oily, and then help you address the issue with hair treatments.Of course, since it s an app made by Kerastase, the recommendations are for its line of hair products, but it isn t heavy-handed.An accelerometer allows the brush to know when you re brushing the crown of your head near the roots or the bottom ends, which are more exposed to the elements.
Since the original Agile Manifesto of 2001, which was written by and for software developers, the Agile movement has spread exponentially.It s provided a tried-and-true process for continual improvement and a focus on providing value to customers, not an obsession with following stiff procedures.What does it mean to be Agile?Instead of planning out all work in advance and then rigidly sticking to that plan for the long haul, Agile separates projects into mini sprints.This ensures that progress is made and that the process can be refined continuously based on real-time customer feedback.With Agile, the primary focus is about delivering real value to the customer, right away and continuously, without getting bogged down in procedures and outdated ways of thinking.
Anyone who has bought a home will tell you: it can be a long, drawn-out process.Sometimes what seems like a done deal, even going into escrow, can backfire and you have to start shopping for a home all over again.For the sake of your finances and your loan, hold off any moving plans until all the closing documents are officially signed.It seems like common sense, but there are so many this is it moments during the homebuying process that it s easy to jump the gun.Hiring a moving company when you have not signed your final loan documents is just plain unnecessary and it sets you up for failure.If you have a moving company come on a certain day and for whatever reason your house doesn t close, things can become problematic.
I know I recently argued that we should ignore Trump's tweets about the auto industry, but hear me out.On Thursday, Trump rehashed an attack he made earlier this week on GM, this time threatening Toyota.Business Insider's Bob Bryan had the report."Toyota Motor said will build a new plant in Baja, Mexico,
Just a few moments ago, I wrote about the Coolpad Conjr and how I feel it s disappointing.Well, I ve just been overwhelmed with an ever bigger disappointment this time.And now, the culprit is the Alcatel A3 XL, a large device with some pretty awful specs.Now while the Conjr has some fairly bad choices, some of the specs are still decent enough.The Alcatel A3 XL has no such saving grace, with the 6-inch display being a meager HD unit.On top of that, we get the MT8735B, a measly quad-core 1.1GHz CPU along with a 1GB RAM and 8GB storage combination.Continuing this streak of terrible choices, the device also only has an 8MP rear camera and a 5MP front camera.If there s a silver lining, it s that the device has a rear fingerprint scanner, though it doesn t help much.
The now-classic dual-controller disk array went hybrid to keep storing primary data, but all-flash arrays are taking on that role and so the hybrids went all flash too.The public cloud growth was unstoppable, with AWS out ahead, followed by Azure and Google, and then by Oracle and IBM – the only on-premises storage suppliers with public cloud service ambitions.Amazon went into physical storage with its Snowball 80TB hard disk drive enclosure transfer to its public cloud from customer data centres, and its 100PB Snowmobile trucked shipping container of storage.Micron flash storage exec Rob Peglar joined Symbolic IO as its CTO during 2016, giving it additional credibility.Michael Dell is now an entrepreneurial IT colossus alongside Bill Gates, Steve Jobs and Larry Ellison.Load Dynamix and Virtual Instruments merged after VI ran into revenue growth problems.
I love when photographer Mike Olbinski chases storms because his always stunning time lapses always remind me that the city I shelter myself in isn t what the world is supposed to look like.The sky is a breathing beast that I m blind to.Olbinski s latest video, which comes from a mix of monsoon and supercell plains chasing, is done up in black and white and it s tremendous.By stripping the color from the footage, you re able to notice more of the texture of the clouds and the movement of the storm which means you re able to see the sheer power and get even more scared of Mother Nature .

Science follow their own strict methods, but sometimes new things can be found completely their from the outside, a lucky coincidence.Cornell university researchers figured out the micro electrodes using spider visual activity.turns Out that the animal belongs the sound you up to three metres and particularly sensitive it is for those frequencies, which sent the biggest threat, loispistiäinen.Rice university scientists conducted experiments in materials magnetic kiss and studied the results of the x-ray.When physics professor Emilia Morosan trying to grind gold and titanium mixture, the task proved nearly impossible.When we try to grind into a fine titanium gold, nothing came of it , he said.
We're planning a series of activations which consist of a branded food truck parked outside grocery stores, giving out food that features our client's product.Basic idea is introducing people to the brand on their way into the store.So it's pretty standard activation.But we want to maximize our conversions from tasting at the food truck to buying once they go inside the store.There are a few basic tactics here like signage, endcap displays, a food demo person inside, etc, and of course coupons.We've done coupons in the past this client is a Unilever brand, so we used their couponing platform , but now our client is worried about a massive volume of print coupons being given out, and the hit to bottom line those could add up to if they are all redeemed.
Police vs tech – round two.Amazon resists US police demands to hand over data gathered on Echo speakerPolice investigating a murder in the US state of Arkansas have gained access to some audio data that may have been recorded on an Amazon Echo electronic personal assistant.But Amazon is attempting to resist police attempts to access the data stored on an Echo device at the centre of a murder investigation, in the latest development that sees a tech firm refusing a law enforcement data demand for privacy reasons.The case is centred in Bentonville, Arkansas, and according to the information website, concerns the death of Victor Collins, who was found on 22 November 2015, in a hot tub at the home of James Bates.Police apparently found signs of a struggle, including spots of blood and broken bottles, as well as an Amazon Echo on the home s kitchen counter.
A critical remote code execution vulnerability in PHPMailer, one of the most widely used PHP email sending libraries, could put millions of websites at risk of hacking.The flaw was found by a security researcher named Dawid Golunski and an initial fix was included in PHPMailer 5.2.18, which was released Saturday.The PHPMailer library is used directly or indirectly by many content management systems CMSs including WordPress, Joomla and Drupal.Because of this, the flaw's impact can vary from website to website.For example, the Joomla security team determined that the Joomla JMail class, which relies on PHPMailer, has additional validations in place that make exploiting the vulnerability impractical.The flaw is caused by insufficient validation of the sender email address input and can allow an attacker to inject shell commands that would be executed on the web server in the context of the sendmail program.
