beat Wall Street's expectations across the board for its second quarter earnings on Wednesday with $9.32 billion in revenue driven primarily by mobile ads.The world's largest social network maintained its steady 17% year-over-year user growth, with 66% of its 2.01 billion users visiting the service every day.Shares dipped roughly 4% in after-hours trading over apparent confusion related to the company's recent switch to reporting GAAP numbers.Bloomberg, which is widely relied on by traders for financial info, initially reported that Facebook had missed earnings targets, but quickly issued a correction.Facebook's stock is up roughly 40% this year, demonstrating assurance from investors that the company can diversify the sources of its revenue growth and continue to grow its user base.Traders have been the most bullish on the stock in years heading into Wednesday's earnings.

BINGHAMTON, N.Y. - Why use regular sunscreen when you can apply a DNA film to your skin?Researchers at Binghamton University, State University of New York have developed a coating made out of DNA that gets better at protecting skin from ultraviolet light the more you expose it to the sun, and it also keeps your skin hydrated."Ultraviolet (UV) light can actually damage DNA, and that's not good for the skin," said Guy German, assistant professor of biomedical engineering at Binghamton University.What happens instead if we actually used DNA as a sacrificial layer?German and a team of researchers developed thin and optically transparent crystalline DNA films and irradiated them with UV light.They found that the more they exposed the film to UV light, the better the film got at absorbing it.

Last year LG and Google both killed their respective modular phones.So the new Moto Z2 Force, with its small array of magnetic attachments, is the closest thing we have to a smartphones with customisable modular hardware.No one actually wants this, but that’s not stopping Motorola from doubling down and insisting that the modular phone’s time has arrived.As with the Z, the new Z2 Force is a super thin phone with a mighty thick camera bump and a magnetic connector on the back.The mods, which range from fancy cameras to fatter batteries, simple connect to the magnet, creating a chunky new device.Last year the Moto Z failed because it was too much gadget and not enough of a good phone all on its lonesome, so this year Motorola is focusing on making a great phone first.

Republikaanisenaattori John McCain palaa ensimmäistä kertaa senaattiin äänestämään aivokasvain-diagnoosinsa jälkeen.Hän osallistuu äänestyksiin Yhdysvaltain terveydenhuoltouudistuksesta sekä uusista Venäjä-pakotteista.McCain kertoi viime viikolla, että häneltä on löydetty aggressiivinen aivokasvain kesäkuussa tehdyssä leikkauksesa.Poliittinen haastaja Kelli Ward on ehtinyt jo vaatimaan McCainia luopumaan tehtävästään diagnoosin vuoksi.McCain päihitti Wardin republikaanien esivaalissa vuonna 2016, mutta nyt Ward ehdottaa, että hän voisi korvata McCainin Arizonan senaattorina, kertoo NBC News.”Toivon, että senaattori McCain miettii pitkään ja ankarasti tätä sekä että hänen perheensä ja neuvonantajansa miettivät tätä ja ohjeistavat häntä astumaan syrjään niin pian kuin mahdollista”, Ward sanoo.

Flashback to the early 1980s, when this programmer pilot fish is writing code for IBM's newest and tiniest minicomputer: the System/23 Datamaster."It was the granddaddy of the IBM PC," fish says."It was an all-in-one computer that would fit on a desk, but it weighed almost 100 lbs.My employer used it for inventory management."When the IT VP asked if we could get a word processor for it, I knew there was supposed to be an option like that -- hardware plus software -- that cost $1,000."But our IBM sales guy told me it wasn't available.

IBM ups its cloud infrastructure investments on the back of disappointing second quarterIBM has expanded its cloud presence with the opening of four new data centres across the UK, US and Australia, bringing its total footprint up to nearly 60 facilities in 19 countries.Two of the data centres are located in London, with IBM following hot on the heels of Google’s opening of a new data centre region in the UK capital to grow the reach of its Google Cloud Platform (GCP).IBM’s two other facilities are in San Jose, California and Sydney, Australia, giving local businesses the opportunity to access to IBM’s cognitive and big data-driven cloud services and meet regulatory compliance.Data security and privacy are key concerns in today’s digital world and having access to local data centres enables organisations to store data how and where they want depending on their specific requirements.This flexibility and assurance will be especially important for European businesses with new Global Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) on the horizon and the two new London facilities will go a long way to assuring businesses of IBM’s commitment to the region in the face of Brexit.

American physician and surgeon William J. Mayo, one of the founders of the famed Mayo Clinic, stated, “The aim of medicine is to prevent disease and prolong life, the ideal of medicine is to eliminate the need of a physician.” Emerging applications of artificial intelligence (AI), as well as medical research trends, suggests that we are moving toward fulfilling medicine’s aim and achieving its ideal.Prediction and prevention, wellness and rehabilitation, amelioration of aging, and technological augmentation of doctors are all noticeable themes.Out of 218 health care AI startups selected from an industry database, 54 were involved in predictive medicine, with 44 founded in 2010 or later.Some companies, like Jvion and HBI Solutions, provide health care organizations with patient-level predictions and risk scores.Others, like Ocuvera, bring prevention to hospitals’ operations by, for example, by identifying a patient’s proclivity to fall and helping to avoid the accident.Activity in the wellness segment of the health care value chain also reflects growing interest in the preventive aspect of medicine.

Canada's current wetland protection efforts have overlooked how the environment naturally protects fresh-water resources from agricultural fertilizer contaminants, researchers from the University of Waterloo have found.In a recent study, engineering researchers at Waterloo found that small wetlands have a more significant role to play than larger ones in preventing excess nutrients like nitrogen and phosphorus from fertilizer from reaching waterbodies such as the Great Lakes.Excess nutrients are a primary cause of algal blooms, which have a number of impacts, including impairing drinking water quality, robbing aquatic life of needed oxygen and closing beaches to swimming."With agriculture and urbanization, Canada has lost a huge portion of its wetlands, which have had a number of environmental impacts," said Nandita Basu, an associate professor of civil and environmental engineering."While we have made some progress in protecting larger wetlands that act as habitat for wildlife, we have been less successful in protecting smaller ones that continue to be removed to make way for things such as new housing subdivisions."What is often not appreciated is that different wetlands serve different purposes."

Friendly near-monopoly wants to work with industry, honestOpenreach has launched a consultation seeking input from industry to create "full fibre" broadband in Blighty - part of its new cuddly, collaborative approach post legal separation from BT.Under its proposals, the body could roll out fibre to 10 million premises by 2025.Openreach under BT had committed to laying two million full fibre lines by 2020.Clive Selley, chief exec of Openreach said the body wants to work "closely with communications providers, government and Ofcom" to build a much larger full fibre network.“By using new techniques, we recently halved the cost of delivering ‘full fibre’ infrastructure, but building a large-scale network is still a huge commercial, technical and logistical challenge that’s going to need real ingenuity, flexibility and coordination across government and industry.

I’ve talked to a number of people on the Surface team over the last few months, and the decision to hinder their beautiful new piece of hardware still boggles the mind.The Surface Laptop is really nice — in fact, it’s quite possibly the best piece of hardware to carry the Surface name.Launching the device at an education event made it look like the company was releasing a $999 Chromebook competitor.I’m not saying there’s no place in the world for Windows 10 S — I’m just saying that if you’re reading this, there’s a pretty good chance it wasn’t built with you in mind.Windows 10 S is defined mostly by its limitations: it’s a locked-down version of the operating system, most notably in the case of apps, which are limited to what you download from the Windows Store.It’s easy to see why teachers might embrace those restrictions — it keeps students’ focus and weeds out potentially malicious apps.

When that happens, and if the tech also has that ‘desirable factor’, well .. then you start to see it everywhere.We have chosen jobs that involve sitting in front of computers, writing about other computers.And so we tend to gravitate to certain gear… Which probably gets a little cliché for those of you at home watching the same items pop up in every video!If you’re going to call yourself a content developer, then you’re going to need yourself a mechanical keyboard.This let’s everyone know you are a writer and you’re into your tech and especially anyone who is within earshot – these things are noisy.Mine literally pulses every time I hit a key, because that’s what I learned from Random Frank P. (I saw the rhyme coming and I went for it).

Googles anteckningstjänst Keep har fått en finess för att ångra och upprepa inmatning.Nyheten återfinns i version v3.4.803, vilken kan laddas hem manuellt av otåliga.Uppdateringen bör annars dyka upp i Play Store inom kort.Självbeskrivande bakåt- och framåt-pilar visas i fältet längs ned i appen.Om du råkar göra en oavsiktlig redigering kan du således enkelt ångra den.Det verkar inte finnas någon begränsning för antalet steg som kan ångras eller upprepas, men om du stänger en anteckning och går tillbaka till startsidan nollställs ”ångra”-listan.

Because conversion optimisation deals with improving website performance, and because websites are primarily technical constructs, it’s easy to lose sight of one simple fact: websites exist to draw customers, and customers are real people.All of the traffic reports we see in Google Analytics (and similar tools) represent actual human beings visiting a site and trying to figure out whether to buy anything or not.We can get overly absorbed in the technical details of tracked events, goals, conversions, and other more exact and numerically expressed indicators.All these quantified data points are easy to interpret — the data can’t lie, right?— and sometimes we can neatly, gratifyingly fit our findings to our theories.However, we’re frequently surprised by the findings of the analytical tools that we’ve taken great care to configure.

Personalized radio service Pandora is using Attribution by Foursquare, a tool that provides real-world conversion measurement for cross-channel media, to help its advertisers better understand how their digital ads are driving foot traffic to brick-and-mortar locations.Foursquare said Attribution by Foursquare tells advertisers about visits to stores, incremental visits, lift for a campaign, return on ad spend, incremental revenue, impressions and devices reached.It also provides audience insights like geography, age group, gender, customer loyalty and category and chain and taste affinities.The data is derived from Foursquare’s foot traffic panel, which it said measures anonymized, aggregated trends for over 2.5 million people.To date, Subway and Mohegan Sun have run campaigns leveraging Attribution by Foursquare to measure foot traffic impact of Pandora’s digital and streaming ads, which include audio, display, video, native ads and branded stations.By integrating Attribution by Foursquare, Pandora has shown advertisers their ads have the potential to drive as much as 7.5% incremental visits to store locations, Foursquare said.

The Reg understands the last of the UK-based staff were let go in March this year, with the office closing down in May - the space is now occupied by another company, despite the number and address still being listed on Basho’s site.Our repeated attempts to get an exact figure from Basho have been ignored, although CTO Dave McCrory has confirmed to us that he no longer works for the company.CEO Adam Wray no longer lists Basho as his current employer on LinkedIn and the company has removed the leadership page from its site.Sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said trouble had been brewing as early as 2012, with problems attributed to a combination of overly controlling investors, a change in management and a shift in work philosophy.Effectively, Basho ceased to grow and then ceased to exist, sources told us.Then, in 2014, Collins left, along with two major players from the company’s original team: CTO Justin Sheehy and Riak author Andy Gross.
