Har du en tv-apparat på 100 tum och tycker att det vore kul med något ännu större?Då kan du glädjas över att Samsung har visat upp en tv på hela 406 tum, vilket motsvarar 10,3 meter.Samsung Cinema Screen har en upplösning på 4K (4096x2160) och har riktigt hög ljusstyrka jämfört med vanliga tv-apparater.Dessutom finns naturligtvis stöd för HDR, något som ger rikare färger och högre kontrast.Så här ser Samsung Cinema Screen ut:Som namnet antyder är tv-apparaten först och främst avsedd för biografbruk, men Samsung tror att den även kan vara till nytta för företagspresentationer och liknande.

Instead of just buying it outright you get it ‘free’ with a 4G contract, starting at £16 per month.The plans creep up in intervals to £31 a month, which offers a tasty 50GB of data.If that puts you off you can also buy the Vodafone Smart Tab N8 outright for £129, which includes 6GB of data (lasting 90 days).It may all sound damning, but we don’t expect more than the bottom-rung essentials at the price.There’s no carry case or bag included, though, and you might want to get hold of one if you’re going to take this tablet on your daily commute.The glass on the front is toughened, but it’s a no-brand type without more advanced extras like fingerprint smudge resistance.

Details surrounding Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Note 8 smartphone have been leaking out for months now, so it seems like we know everything there is to know about the phone at this point.We know that it’ll feature an updated Infinity Display design similar to the Galaxy S8, but with an even larger screen and possibly even a better screen-to-body ratio.We also know it’ll be powered by Samsung and Qualcomm’s latest mobile processors, and it’ll have even more RAM than the Galaxy S8 and S8+ from earlier this year.We know there’s a dual-lens camera around back alongside a fingerprint sensor, we know there will be an upgraded S Pen stylus built in, and we know the phone will be unveiled in late August.Indeed, we know just about everything there is to know at this point.Since information has come from so many different sources, it’s highly unlikely that there will be many surprises left when Samsung unveils the phone at a press conference in New York next month.

Burger King is moving away from toys and trinkets to focus on an altogether more productive bundled freebies by handing out 3D printed prosthetic limbs to those in need.Brainchild of the creatives at David the All Hands on Flavor campaign slots into a wider bid to champion social issues as a means to elevate the burger brand, which offered its Stacker 'Atomic' five burger combo bun for sale at half price on 5 July – with 50% of sales (up to a maximum value of $200k) donated to prosthetic limb manufacturer Atomic Lab.This largesse enabled designers to produce an additional 1,000 hands and arms, two times the number donated over the preceding three years.Perhaps mindful of McDonald’s recent faux pas, which equated a Fillet’o’Fish burger to a bereavement salve, co-creative chief Joaquín Cubría told AdWeek: “Burger King is not playing the hero role, it’s just helping.The people in the film live normal lives - and always find a way to do what they want.They’ll accept our help, but can perfectly live without it.

Novitec has made the Tesla X more aerodynamic than before using a wind tunnel, carbon fiber, and decades of experience.Germany’s Novitec has made a name for itself in the tuning industry by modifying high-end cars built by the likes of Lamborghini, Ferrari, and Rolls-Royce.Recently, the company decided to follow the industry’s gradual shift toward electric mobility and turned its attention to the Tesla Model X. It’s not the first modified Tesla on the market, and it certainly won’t be the last, but this Model X looks better than the rest.Some tuners simply tack on as many extra panels as they can to the front, side, and rear of a car, give it an absurd paint job, and call it a day.Novitec started the tuning process by putting the Model X in a wind tunnel.It then developed a body kit that includes a splitter attached to the front bumper, side skirts, and an air diffuser integrated into the rear bumper.

Recently, a kerfuffle in the world of CRISPR illustrated just how easily money—and our perception of it—can impact science.Stock prices of three CRISPR companies—Editas Medicine, Intellia Therapeutics and CRISPR Therapeutics—tumbled.There is a significant body of evidence suggesting financial interests can correlate with favourable results.And rarely has there been as much money at stake as with CRISPR, the nascent gene-editing technique that promises to cure everything from genetic disease to global famine by allowing researchers to easily cut and paste particular genes.When scientists whose fortune and reputation hinges on a particular technology speak out against a paper questioning that technology, it’s hard not to wonder how that bias might factor in.“When it became clear that more and more scientists have a specific financial stake, it caused a lot of concern,” Johnston said.

China’s explosive growth of online shopping and cashless payment, and an industrial ecosystem surrounding mobile internet have Alibaba Group Holdings into Asia’s most capitalised company, while making its founder and chairman Jack Ma one of China’s wealthiest men.Behind Ma’s wealth are tens and thousands of women like Yin Han, a film and television producer in Beijing, who’s been an active online shopper for years.In 2014, she was among the first to be conferred the APASS membership since the programme was introduced.Prices are roughly the same whether purchased online or offline, and goods purchased from official online stores can be returned at brick-and-mortar shops, she added.As a mother raising a young family, she is a frequent buyer of children’s products as well as pet food.Minimum spending on the two platforms among APASS members still exceeds US$15,000 yearly.

Marvel Studios has a habit of filling its movies with references — both subtle and blatant — teasing a wide range of elements from Marvel’s comics lore outside the film’s main narrative, and the latest installment is no exception.Homecoming director Jon Watts and the rest of the film’s creative team packed a long list of call-outs to characters, objects, and story arcs from the world of Marvel Comics that had yet to be formally introduced to Marvel’s cinematic universe.From indirect references to potential Spider-Man allies to cameos from well-known foes, Homecoming offers an impressive amount of fuel for speculation as you watch Peter Parker’s adventure unfold.If the name wasn’t enough to make the connection, however, the tattoo of a scorpion on the neck of Mando’s character certainly reinforced the reference to one of Spider-Man’s most dangerous, recurring foes.It’s also worth noting that Mac Gargan’s mention of some powerful friends on the outside during his mid-credits scene with Michael Keaton’s character could foretell the introduction of the villain super-team known as “The Sinister Six” — a team long rumored to be getting its own movie down the road.The small-time crook played by Glover is identified in the film as Aaron Davis, which also happens to be the name of a villain known as The Prowler in Marvel Comics’ “Ultimate Universe” (an alternate version of the Marvel Comics universe with slightly different, more modern versions of the classic Marvel characters).

Conversations with robots are still pretty crummy.Now a new study from Adobe, released Thursday, provides some insights into how much folks use voice assistants and how much they like -- and dislike -- them.In all, 37 percent of people surveyed for the study described interactions with voice assistants as either "not good" or "terrible."The same percentage of people rated voice assistants positively, and the rest described them as "okay."A big reason for these less-than-stellar numbers is Apple's Siri, an underachiever that's single-handedly dragging down consumer expectations for voice assistants, said Adobe Digital Insights analyst Tamara Gaffney.An April study from digital marketer Stone Temple also showed poor results from Siri.

The UK's Financial Reporting Council (FRC) is to investigate PwC's audits of BT, following an accountancy scandal at the telecom firm's Italian unit.The accountancy regulator will probe PwC's consolidated financial statements of BT Group for the years ended 31 March 2015 to 2017, in the wake of the scandal which forced a writedown of £530m.BT's share price plunged when the news emerged in January 2017, and has yet to recover the £8bn which was wiped off its value.A BT spokesman said: “We note the FRC’s announcement that it has commenced an investigation into the audits by PWC.It would be inappropriate for us to comment further at this stage.”The company has faced a difficult year, with profits plunging 19 per cent to £2.4bn during 2016/17 amid record fines of £342m fines due to a failure to compensate ethernet customers, and a job cuts programme of 4,000.

More than 50 years ago, the Ford Mustang burst onto the scene — and changed the game forever.It wasn’t the first muscle car ever built, but it did birth the term “pony car,” which went on to describe such classics as the Chevrolet Camaro, Pontiac Firebird, and Plymouth Barracuda.A revamped 2018 model is due out later this year, and even though it’s technically a mid-cycle refresh and not a new generation, there’s plenty to digest.Ford debuted the 2018 Mustang and 2018 Mustang Convertible online following the leak of a promotional video on YouTube.In fact, the 2016 Shelby Mustang GT350R won the Performance category of our Car Awards last year, beating a Lamborghini Huracan and a Mercedes-AMG GT S on track day to do so.Ford is dropping the V6 entirely for the 2018 model year, leaving buyers with a 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder and a 5.0-liter V8.

INTERVIEW: Chris Brazdziunas, vice president of products at security intelligence company LogRhythum, discusses women in technology with SiliconDespite the progress that has been made over the past few years, there is still a lack of women in the technology industry.Having a diverse workforce and one that has a more equal balance of male and female workers in necessary for the future success of the technology world as it equips companies with the knowledge and scope to target products at wider demographics.And given how technology touches pretty much everything in modern daily life, having that scope could be the difference between an enterprise succeeding or being left in the dust by its rivals.While coding is now enshrined in the curriculum of English schools, thereby helping bolster the pipe line of digital skills in Britain, there is a trend of women leaving technical subject behind when the reach higher education.Then there are also factors such as women leaving the theology world earlier than men, and not just due to the desire to raise a family.
