Narratives affärsidé var att utveckla och sälja en liten kamera som fästs på kläderna, för att på så sätt kunna fånga livets viktigaste ögonblick.Totalt tog Martin Källström och hans medgrundare in över 100 miljoner i kapital och blev flitigt omskrivna i media.Men i verkligheten hade det börjat knaka i fogarna 2015, och när Narrative under hösten 2016 inte lyckades få in ytterligare finansiering var konkursen ett faktum.I Breakits podcast, som under sommaren består av fyra specialpoddar med erfarna entreprenörer, berättar Martin Källström om konkursen och vad han lärde sig:"Vi körde hela vägen på vår initiala strategi 'go big or go home'.Hade vi haft bättre koll på hur marknaden för wearables utvecklades i framförallt investerares ögon hade vi kanske bestämt oss för att växla den strategin i tid", säger han och tillägger:

When LG went back to the drawing board, it discovered that users valued reliability and survivability as much as they valued features.Not everyone, however can afford LG’s brand of reliability.Some are willing to skimp on the flashy features and specs for an affordable phone that can take them through the day and through life’s unexpected and unwanted mishaps.For these consumers, BLU’s latest armored phone, the Tank Xtreme Pro, might just fit the bill.It seems like yesterday only when BLU unveiled the Tank Xtreme 5.0.Actually, it has only been about 5 months.

Telsa and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk told a bipartisan gathering of US governors on Saturday (16 July) that artificial intelligence must be properly regulated, describing it as a "fundamental risk to the existence of civilisation.Speaking at the National Governors Association summer meeting in Rhone Island, Musk discussed the future of driverless cars and space travel, the strides made so far in AI research and development and the immediate need to regulate the AI sector."I have exposure to the very most cutting edge AI, and I think people should be really concerned about it," Musk said.Musk, who has long voiced serious concerns about the risks and dangers that come with AI, said he believes the government needs to proactively address and regulate AI development."Until people see robots going down the street killing people, they don't know how to react because it seems so ethereal," Musk said."Normally the way regulations are set up is a while bunch of bad things happen, there's a public outcry, and after many years a regulatory agency is set up to regulate that industry.

(Reuters) — A major, global cyber attack could trigger an average of $53 billion of economic losses, a figure on par with a catastrophic natural disaster such as U.S. Superstorm Sandy in 2012, Lloyd’s of London said in a report on Monday.The report, co-written with risk-modeling firm Cyence, examined potential economic losses from the hypothetical hacking of a cloud service provider and cyber attacks on computer operating systems run by businesses worldwide.“Because cyber is virtual, it is such a difficult task to understand how it will accumulate in a big event,” Lloyd’s of London Chief Executive Inga Beale told Reuters.Economic costs in the hypothetical cloud provider attack dwarf the $8 billion global cost of the “WannaCry” ransomware attack in May, which spread to more than 100 countries, according to Cyence.Economic costs typically include business interruptions and computer repairs.The Lloyd’s report follows a U.S. government warning to industrial firms about a hacking campaign targeting the nuclear and energy sectors.

The rich and famous will have to get their high-end phones from somewhere elseBritish-based luxury phone manufacturer Vertu has collapsed after finding that, surprisingly, there isn’t actually much of a market for £10,000 smartphones.Vertu was founded by Nokia in 1998 with the goal of building high-end devices for the rich and famous, such as the £10,700 ‘Vertu for Bentley’ and the £14,300 Signature Touch Pure Jet Red Gold.It was known for its bespoke jewel-encrusted devices, made with high-end materials such as titanium and sapphire glass, but is now no more after running up debts of £128 million.The company will enter into liquidation after Turkish businessman Hakan Uzan – who will retain the brand, technology and licenses – failed in an attempt to bail it out, resulting in the loss of around 200 jobs.Uzan acquired Vertu for £50 million in March of this year, becoming the company’s third owner in a matter of years after it had previously been sold to a Hong Kong-based investment fund for a reported £450m price tag.

On Wednesday, the Samba Team released new security updates to fix a vulnerability in "all versions of Samba from 4.0.0 onward using embedded Heimdal Kerberos," according to an announcement from the United States-Computer Emergency Readiness Team (US-CERT).The upgrade comes in response to an invasive piece of malware which virally spread ransomware known as "WannaCry," "WCry," or "WannaCrypt."As Ars reported in May 2017, within hours of the attack, computer systems around the world were crippled, prompting hospitals to turn away patients while telecoms, banks, and companies such as FedEx were forced to turn off computers for the weekend.Because of WannaCry, Microsoft took the rare step of issuing patches for three discontinued versions of Windows that hadn’t been updated in years.In a blog post released at the time, Microsoft believed that the ransomware worked due to a SMB protocol exploit.With the newly released update, Samba developers noted: "Additionally, Samba 4.6.6, 4.5.12 and 4.4.15 have been issued as security releases to correct the defect.

It has been almost 20 years, but one of Tom Clancy's best novels could finally hit the big screen soon.A number of Tom Clancy’s famous novels have been adapted into films, including Clear and Present Danger, The Sum of All Fears, and Patriot Games, but the author’s special-operations novel Rainbow Six hasn’t received the big-screen treatment yet.That appears to be changing, with producer Akiva Goldsman developing a film based on the novel for Paramount.According to Deadline, the film will follow the story of Clancy’s 1998 book, with former Navy SEAL John Clark leading “an international task force to combat terrorism.” Ryan Reynolds is reportedly in early talks to play Clark.Though this will be the first Rainbow Six film, it isn’t the first time we’ve seen the character on camera.He was played Willem Dafoe and Liev Screiber in Clear and Present Danger and The Sum of All Fears, respectively, opposite Harrison Ford and Ben Affleck as Jack Ryan.

GPS, Global Positioning System, är ett system för navigering med hjälp av satelliter.GPS har idag både militära och civila funktioner och kan användas av alla som har en gps-mottagare.Denna spärr togs bort, men om en konflikt skulle utbryta har USA möjlighet att stoppa tillgången till GPS för andra än den egna militären.För att gps ska fungera behöver din mottagare (exempelvis en mobiltelefon) ha kontakt med minst fyra gps-satelliter.Varje satellit skickar ut en signal som innehåller information om var satelliten befann sig när signalen skickades, samt vilken exakt tid signalen skickades, vilket avgörs av väldigt precisa atomur.De stora fördelarna med GPS är att systemet fungerar helt oberoende av andra system (telefonnät, internet) och kräver ingen överföring av data för att använda.

Game of Thrones returns for season seven on July 16th (17th in the UK), and there are plenty of major questions fans have had for years that will likely be answered during its seven-week run.the real story of Lyanna Stark’s abduction by Rhaegar Targaryen, who is Azor Ahai, will we get the Cleganebowl, etc.At the end of season two, Samwell Tarly is engulfed by a swarm of White Walkers and wights, indicating that winter is well on the way to Westeros.The White Walker leading the troops even appears to make eye contact with him, and then just moves on, like, “Dude, you’re so not worth my time.”I’ve seen a couple of explanations, though honestly none of them have seemed satisfactory.But given that they’d attacked a huge group of Night’s Watchmen, at least a few of which must have managed to escape, I don’t think one man by himself in the middle of an open wintry field would be all that valuable to them.

Its latest effort to one-up competitors is Snap Map, a digital map that lets you see where your friends are hanging out.The idea is that if you can see you’ve got a friend nearby, you’ll find it much easier to arrange impromptu meet-ups.If you and a friend follow one another, you can share your locations with each other so you can see where they’re at and what’s going on around them!Plus, meeting up can be a cinch.”Unsurprisingly, this location-sharing feature has led to concerns over privacy, which leads us onto the question of whether Snap Map is safe.It’s also not possible to share your location with someone who isn’t already your friend on Snapchat, and the majority of interactions on Snapchat take place between close friends.”
