This has lead to users taking multiple versions of the same image in order to capture the best one, and lead to many younger users, in particular, running secondary accounts where they can post more goofy, relaxed images away from their polished main feeds.Or, alternatively, they can just publish to Snapchat where that content disappears.But Instagram doesn t want to be seen that way – as Instagram s Head of Product Kevin Weil recently told Recode: We want Instagram to be a place where you share all of your moments, including the more private moments or the inside jokes that are relevant not for your entire Instagram following but for a smaller group of folks.This is the impetus behind Instagram s latest big announcement – rolling out over the next few months, Instagram is bringing live-streaming to Stories and disappearing photos and videos to Instagram direct messaging.First off, there s live-streaming – as we reported last month, Instagram is looking to bring live-streaming into the Instagram Stories experience.

Valet bör inte vara så svårt längre eftersom hybriddatorerna i dag har samma innanmäte som vanliga laptops.Kvaliteten på 2-i-1-datorerna har ökat enormt de senaste åren, i och med lanseringen av Windows 8 och framför allt Windows 10 så känns det helt naturligt att växla över till surfplatteläge och bläddra runt på skärmen med fingrarna.Precis som beteckningen antyder får du två produkter i ett, som kan användas både som en vanlig bärbar och som en platta att slösurfa med i soffan.Innan du ger dig i kast med att välja din nästa hybrid så måste du bestämma dig för om du föredrar en modell med 360-graders vridbar skärm eller om du är mer intresserad av en med löstagbart tangentbord.Eftersom priserna på de senare har sjunkit så kan de med fördel tas med i beräkningen när du ska köpa en ny 2-i-1-dator.Modelltypen medför dock en inte oväsentlig kompromiss, eftersom en surfplatta inte har lika många in- och utgångar som en vanlig bärbar, plus att de lösa tangentborden ofta är ganska så platta och inte är i närheten av lika sköna att skriva på längre stunder.

Apple last week impressed and shocked the world when it released a brand new product just weeks after unveiling the iPhone 7.For just $300, Apple fans can now get their hands on a new coffee table book that highlights a select history of Apple products dating back to 1997, beginning of course with the iconic Bondi Blue iMac.Okay, so maybe nobody was impressed.And sure, maybe no one was shocked either, aside of course from the deluge of snarky Internet commenters who were quick to blast Apple for having the gall to release a book for $300.DON T MISS: Daryl may have quietly made The Walking Dead great againDedicated to the memory of Steve Jobs, Apple design guru Jony Ive explained the impetus behind the book s creation as follows.

The 31-year-old—who has Asperger's syndrome—faces up to 99 years in prison and fears for his own life, his lawyers have said.A home office spokesperson told Ars: "On Monday 14 November, the secretary of state, having carefully considered all relevant matters, signed an order for Lauri Love s extradition to the United States.Mr Love has been charged with various computer hacking offences which included targeting US military and federal government agencies."Rudd considered four so-called legal tests of the Extradition Act 2003: whether Love is at risk of the death penalty; whether specialty arrangements are in place; whether Love has previously been extradited from another country to the UK—thereby requiring consent from that country; and whether Love was previously transferred to the UK by the International Criminal Court.However, the home secretary concluded that none of these issues applied to Love.It comes after more than 100 MPs recently penned a letter to president Barack Obama, urging him to prevent Love's extradition to the US on the grounds that the hacking suspect's case is similar to that of British citizen Gary McKinnon, whose extradition to the US was blocked in 2012 by then home secretary Theresa May.

It s probably the reason why I have always preferred Netflix to conventional cable, because binge-watching a great show from five years back seems a far better offer than having to wait an entire week for a single episode of a newer title.My views changed significantly when I saw one of the biggest gaming titles of the year succeed not just despite, but because of its episodic program.They kept everything that ever made the Hitman franchise a success, open-world sandboxes, attention to detail, highly interactive environments, intense and exciting gameplay, non-linear approach and imposing storyline, and brought it to the next level using the advanced Glacier 2 rendering engine.By focusing on the exact points that made the franchise likeable and making them even better, IO Interactive may have just breathed life into a dying genre of stealth-action games.However, what seemed like a poor marketing decision is precisely what enabled the game to succeed on such a massive scale.Releasing the game one level at a time every month enabled the developers to work on each and every mission with extensive attention to detail.

Microsoft has announced it has signed new wind farm contracts that commit the company to buying 237 megawatts of wind energy, enough to power its zero-carbon data center in Cheyenne, Wyoming.The company says it has contracted to purchase wind from a 178 megawatt Bloom Wind farm in Kansas, and 59 megawatts from the Silver Sage and Happy Jack farms in Wyoming.This is in addition to its existing 75-megawatt wind farm agreement in Illinois and 110-megawatt contract in Texas, meaning this latest news takes the company past the 500 megawatt mark.For the Silver Sage and Happy Jack farms in Wyoming, Microsoft is partnering with Black Hills Energy, and Microsoft has revealed that its data center s backup generators will be offered for use as a secondary resource for the entire grid, meaning that during times of high demand, Microsoft will actually be providing electricity to the local community.The company says that it approached Black Hills Energy with this offer when it discovered that Black Hills Energy was considering building a new plant in Cheyenne, and the two subsequently teamed up to offer a new tariff and avoid having to build the plant.This is a small step toward a future where other customer-sited resources may help make the grid more efficient, reliable, and capable of integrating intermittent energy sources like wind and solar, explained Brad Smith, president and chief legal officer at Microsoft.Unlike traditional backup generators that run on diesel fuel, these natural gas turbines offer a more efficient solution and, more importantly, ensure the utility avoids building a new power plant.Microsoft opened its Wyoming data center, which it calls a data plant  and which is powered by a fuel cell that converts biogas into electricity, in November 2014.

Metsäteollisuus ry:n toimitusjohtaja Timo Jaatinen.Republikaanien Donald Trumpin voitto presidentinvaaleissa heijastuu myös eurooppalaiseen teollisuuteen, kirjoittaa Metsäteollisuus ry:n toimitusjohtaja Timo Jaatinen blogissaan.Ennen kaikkea epävarmuus tulee lisääntymään ja juuri epävarmuudesta yritykset eivät pidä, Jaatinen jatkaa."Sen jälkeen, kun markkinat ovat toipuneet yllätyksestä, katse kannattaa kääntää edessä oleviin muutoksiin teollisuuden toimintaympäristössä.Yksi kiinnostava kysymys liittyy siihen, miten "ruosteenvärinen" teollisuuspolitiikka puree.Eli onnistuuko Trump tuomaan takaisin edes osan amerikkalaisille lupaamistaan työpaikoista", hän pohtii.
