The golden rule is that contributing to the company blog should never be seen as a homework assignment.Start by defining why “Whole Company Blogging” is worth the effort.Your reasons are your own, but here’s why we believe team contributions are worthwhile.To highlight the potential, fly under the banner of “Do things, tell people” (borrowed from Carl Lange).Remember that “being liked” isn’t marketing fluff; it’s a genuine advantage.@helpscout I can confirm this is true :) For me, writing about our culture helped a lot in recruiting.

All newbies must toil long and hard with their Linux installations before they can describe themselves as one.The ideal distro for power users is one that encourages tinkering extensively with all the different aspects of the OS, and makes you work towards your goal of a perfect system.For these three distros, despite the wide array of default packages, you still need to install codecs and other plugins before you can play media files, or enjoy videos on YouTube, or even get the most out of your proprietary graphics card.Slackware offers the Calligra office suite, while Fedora and Debian both ship with LibreOffice.You can change the desktop background, the icons theme, define keyboard shortcuts, configure power management, and make many other changes to the appearance and behaviour of all Linux distros though, so what's the big deal?This is in marked contrast to distros where you go through installation, then you have to remove packages and settings you don't want, which will never deliver as good (or streamlined) a system as one built from scratch to your specifications.

Sometimes, it can take years between when an automaker first receives a field report and the recall that eventually follows.After receiving its first report in 2015, Mazda's finally recalled some Mazda6 sedans.Mazda has issued a voluntary recall for 57,878 examples of the 2015-2016 Mazda6.The build dates of these vehicles range between Nov. 3, 2014 (the start of 2015 production), and Dec. 9, 2015 (the date the problem was remedied on the line).While the recall covers issues with the wiring, the root cause was narrowed down to bad welding.Spatter from a weld on the front passenger seat frame could scrape at the occupant classification sensor wiring harness.

The 5G testing continues and Ericsson has scored a win over its Chinese rivals by getting in with China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology.The collaboration also involved US chip giant Intel and concerned 5G multi-vendor interoperability over the 3.5 GHz band at a field test in Beijing.It used Ericsson’s 5G radio testbed and Intel’s 5G client test platform.The MIIT seems to be a combination of government department and regulator for IT and Telecoms, so it’s presumably pretty influential in a country where the state has far more power and influence than in western democracies.“We recognize the importance and innovation of the Chinese market and by working closely with ecosystem partners such as Intel, we are helping to pave the way for a successful rollout of 5G in the future,” said Chris Houghton, Head of Market Area North East Asia at Ericsson.“This accomplishment is the first of many that will enable our customers to benefit from better, smarter networks.”

For over a year, Instagram has been pushing the idea that small businesses represent a big potential growth area for its advertising business.For instance, that was the thrust of the message conveyed by former Instagram global head of business and brand development James Quarles (who since has moved on to lead Strava) at Cannes 2016.Well, today, all that talk certainly doesn’t seems like malarkey.Timed to Advertising Week, which kicks off today, the Facebook-owned app is revealing that it now has two million monthly advertisers, growing from 1 million as recently as March, which represents a massive jump of 900 percent since February of last year, when it had 200,000 advertisers.are increasingly utilizing Instagram video ads, local players are getting into the game.For instance, New York politicians for the Sept. 12 primary elections consistently bought Instagram ads, including Democratic city council hopeful Justin Brannan (seen above), who won his party’s nomination in Brooklyn’s 43rd district.

Although the Fourth Amendment protects us and our “effects” from “unreasonable searches and seizures,” Customs and Border Protection agents can take advantage of an exception to this constitutional protection and search our electronic devices at airports without first establishing reasonable suspicion or securing a warrant.The plaintiffs claim that warrantless and suspicionless border electronic device searches violate the First and Fourth Amendments.For example, earlier this year Sidd Bikkannavar, an engineer at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, was subject to a secondary airport inspection at the airport in Houston, and was asked by a customs and border patrol agent for the passcode to a phone he was carrying.The phone belonged to NASA, and although Bikkannayar explained as much, the agent continued asking for the code.Fearing that CBP would seize the phone and that he would miss his connecting flight to Los Angeles, Bikkannavar relented and provided it.After around 30 minutes the agent returned with the phone, telling Bikkannavar the phone had been analyzed with “algorithms” and that no “derogatory” information had been found.

It provided one of the most spectacular and intuitive indications that seemed to show that dark matter was real.Looking back at the Bullet Cluster today—how we got from here to there and back again—highlights how science works in that same clean manner.When you map the results of the first model onto models of many galaxy clusters randomly colliding with each other, you should find that the predicted collision is not too extraordinary.Yes, it is possible that we hit the equivalent of a winning lotto ticket.Or, more precisely, for every collision that requires extreme conditions, we should have observed lots that are within the normal range.The first indication that something could be amiss came from models that collided two clusters.

Trello has grown quickly since it spun off from software firm Fog Creek three years ago, adding millions of users every few months.Trello started off in January 2011 as a prototype from Fog Creek, aimed at solving “high-level planning issues,” according to the company.It was launched at TechCrunch Disrupt later that year and then spun off as its own company, with Fog Creek co-founder Michael Pryor as CEO.Others include Asana, Workfront, Smartsheet, Planview and Projectplace; Microsoft has also launched a Trello rival, Planner.Trello’s initial use case has been for small teams of up to 10 people, or even for personal use.Trello draws on the principles of Kanban, a method of visualizing workflows to provide an overview of a project from start to finish.

Gmail is packed with a lot of time-saving features, like Smart Replies for mobile users.So it’s a bit surprising to realize that Gmail will only now start to automatically detect and convert addresses, phone numbers and contacts into links.The feature, which begins rolling out today for Gmail and Inbox on Android, iOS and the web, should be familiar to most users because almost every other major email client has it already.Address links will open Google Maps, clicking on an email address launches a new compose window in your email client and phone numbers dial a new call in Hangouts or your default phone app.As the G Suite team blog puts it, “Gmail users often exchange information like addresses and phone numbers with each other to set up meetings, introduce colleagues and plan events.Precious time can be lost by having to copy and paste this information from an email into other apps and websites, so we wanted to provide a better way to perform these tasks that also saves time.” Indeed.

Beyond the disruption of business and data – things that many of us don’t have a need to care about – AI is going to change the way most people live, as well.As a GPT, AI is predicted to integrate within our entire society in the next few years, and become entirely mainstream — like electricity and the internet.While electricity brought illumination and the internet revolutionized communication, machine-learning is already disrupting finance, chemistry, diagnostics, analytics, and consumer electronics – to name a few.This is going to bring efficiency to a world with more data than we know what to do with.It’s also going to disrupt your average person’s day — in a good way — like other GPTs before AI did.Anyone who lived in a world before Google and the internet may recall a time when people would actually have arguments about simple facts.

Project 'Honolulu' gives some PowerShell-only jobs a GUI and hyperconverges WindowsMicrosoft's Ignite gabfest kicks off in a fortnight and Redmond will use it to show off a shiny new Windows Server admin GUI that includes tools previously only available in PowerShell.Project “Honolulu”, as the tool is known for now, appears to address two issues for Microsoft.One is that it says Windows Server users say “PowerShell is necessary but not sufficient, and that Windows Server ease-of-use is still largely dependent on GUI tools for core scenarios and new capabilities.” A richer GUI should sort that out.The other is that hyperconverged infrastructure is hot, but nearly always features either vSphere or open source software.Microsoft therefore created vendor alliances for Windows-powered hyperboxen and has been pumping out blog posts saying Windows Server really is hyperconverged too for about ten days now.

Finansminister Magdalena Andersson motsätter sig att beskatta digitala tjänster med en omsättningsskatt där försäljningen sker.Det bör betyda att svenska spelbolag på Malta, AirBnB, Amazon och andra digitala bolag kan känna sig säkra att deras skattesituation i Sverige inte ändras."Har man en omsättningsskatt blir det de facto att flytta skatten dit konsumentmarknaden ligger", sade hon i en intervju med Nyhetsbyrån Direkt på fredagen."För ett exportland som Sverige, som har en ganska liten befolkning men många stora företag, är det inte uppenbart i vårt intresse", fortsatte hon.Det informella ekofinmötet ska på lördagen diskutera hur digitala tjänster ska kunna beskattas.Många EU-länder har upprörts av att Apple, Microsoft, Google och Facebook betalar lite eller ingen skatt alls i EU.
