p It's a bummer that most cell phone plans don't have taxes and fees included, especially because fee increases will get passed on to those customers.Calling all T-Mobile customers — some less than stellar news is coming your way.The Un-carrier just announced a new fee change that will impact some of you — specifically those who are not part of the T-Mobile One plan.Beginning June 10, 2017, the Regulatory Programs & Telco Recovery Fee for certain T-Mobile accounts will increase.Voice line costs will go from $2.71 to $3.18, and data lines will jump from $0.98 to $1.16.Because T-Mobile One plans have their taxes and fees included, no changes will be made for those customers.

p Dish is getting serious about voice control.The company just announced that you can now use Amazon Echo’s Alexa to control any generation of a Hopper DVR or a Wally satellite receiver.That’s great news for Dish subscribers who missed out on the company’s homegrown voice control remote released last July because they lacked a Hopper 3 DVR.We first heard about Dish’s plans for Alexa during CES in January.While you can have any generation of a Hopper DVR to use Alexa, you will need some specific Amazon hardware.Dish’s integration works with Alexa on the Amazon Echo, Echo Dot, and Amazon Tap.

p Spotify is known for its personalized recommendations, and those might be getting even better now that it's acquired AI-startup Niland.Spotify has expanded its growing empire once again.The music streaming service, which seems to have plans to go public in the near future, is quickly adding to its portfolio, acquiring yet another company.This one marks the forth acquisition this year, with the first three being blockchain startup Mediachain, content recommender MightyTV, and audio detection firm Sonalytic.Paris-based Niland, an artificial intelligence startup, is the latest company to join Spotify, and it would appear that the goal is to leverage the company’s AI capabilities to surface “the right content to the right user at the right time.”Earlier this week, Spotify confirmed the acquisition in a short blog post announcement, noting that the startup has “changed the game for how AI technology can optimize music search and recommendation capabilities and shares Spotify’s passion” for bringing music to the masses.

p Kaupunkisuunnittelun arvostelu nousi uusille kierroksille, kun Talouselämä julkaisi Tebatti-kirjoituksen, jossa strategiseen suunnitteluun perehtynyt hallitusammattilainen Henrik Immonen arvosteli Jätkäsaaren ja Länsisataman alueen liikenteen ongelmakohtia.Immonen kritisoi, että Länsisataman läheisyydessä jyrisee ulkomaisia rekkoja aivan asuintalojen vieressä.Liikennesuunnittelupäällikkö Reetta Putkonen Kaupunkisuunnitteluvirastosta myöntää Immosen olevan oikeassa siinä, että alueella kyllä liikkuu rekkoja.Niillä ei ole oikeutta ajaa keskustassa, kuten ei muillakaan yli 12-metrisillä kulkuneuvoilla ilman lupaa”, Putkonen sanoo.”Tavaraliikenne kasvaa Helsingin sataman tilastojen mukaan Vuosaaren satamassa, eli näissä meidän kaupunkimatkustajaterminaaleissa ei kasva tavaraliikenne vaan matkustajaliikenne”, Putkonen selventää.Helsingin kaupunki pyrkii siis systemaattisesti ohjaamaan tavaraliikennettä juuri Vuosaaren satamaan, mutta aivan kaikkia tavararekkakuljetuksia ei sinne voida siirtää.

p Viestintäviraston Kyberturvakeskus on poistanut punaisen varoituksen WannaCry-kiristyshaittaohjelman osalta, joka tunnetaan myös nimellä WanaCrypt0r.Viime lauantaina annettu varoitus koski haavoittuviin Windows-tietokoneisiin tarttuvaa ohjelmaa.Kyberturvakeskuksen tiedotteen mukaan "leviäminen on laantunut ja suurin osa haavoittuvien tietokoneiden omistajista on tehnyt tarvittavia toimenpiteitä tietoturvaongelmien korjaamiseksi".Kokonaan kiristysohjelmien aiheuttama uhka ei kuitenkaan ole poistunut.Kyberturvallisuuskeskus arvioi, että lähipäivinä ilmaantuu useampia uusia muunnoksia, joissa pyritään hyödyntämään WannaCry-haittaohjelman käyttämiä menetelmiä.WannaCryn käyttämästä saastuttamismekanismista ei edelleenkään ole varmuutta.

p When Australian payroll-for-contractors outfit Plutus Payroll stopped paying its customers, several pointed out that the company looked too good to be true – because it did not charge for its services.And now we know why: the biz has been named at the centre of an AU$165 million (US$122.5m, £94.5m) fraud against the Commonwealth of Australia.As detailed by the Australian Federal Police (AFP), a syndicate ran Plutus and “... accepted money from legitimate clients to process payroll on their behalf.This money was transferred to seven sub-contracted companies known as Tier 2 companies, which then made payroll payments to individual workers of clients.”The AFP points out that Plutus was a legitimate company, but asserts that “directors of these Tier 2 companies … are essentially a front – individuals recruited to appear to be running the companies, but the syndicate members retain effective control.”The syndicate used that control to direct the Tier 2 companies to pay only some of the income tax they were required to pay on behalf of customers.

p YouTube is new to the television streaming game but the company is already adding seven new networks—AMC, BBC America, Sundance TV, Telemundo, Universo, We TV and IFC—to their basic $35/month package.So you can now get more for your money when you subscribe to YouTube TV—but there are some limitations to know about before deciding if it’s the right service for you.It’s not available for everyone yetThe biggest drawback of the TV service provided by YouTube is that it’s not available for all users in the country.Currently, YouTube TV has launched in five metro areas: Chicago, Los Angeles, New York City, Philadelphia and the San Francisco Bay Area.You can watch local networks in areas where the service has launched — so you can get local coverage from New York or Chicago but can’t view live local networks from a city where the service had not made its debut.

p En gammal klassiker för sång är att kombinera en LA-2A och en 1176-kompressor.Det är två kompressorer som jobbar väldigt olika, där LA-2A:n är långsam mjuk och musikalisk och 1176:an är snabb och exakt, vilket gör att de kompletterar varandra mycket bra.Förut har denna kedja varit mer eller mindre ouppnåelig för mindre aktörer inom studiovärlden på grund av pris och tillgänglighet.Med pluggar har en kunnat efterlikna detta ganska länge, men nu finns det fler och fler budgetalternativ till dessa ikoniska original.För mig personligen har det varit väl investerade pengar att skaffa mina hårdvaruburkar för denna uppgift, då det har snabbat upp och underlättat min mixprocess väldigt mycket.I vilken ordning dessa två kompressorer ska placeras har diskuterats mycket.

p Dogs can be wonderful pets, but one big problem a lot of adult dog owners face is that their dog cant stand being alone.Man’s best friend can be exceptionally clingy, barking or tearing up furniture when left alone for hours on end.This can be problematic for those who work full time, particularly if you live in an apartment building.If you don’t want your dog to disturb your neighbors, you’ll need some way to distract it when it starts to get anxious.Thankfully, there is a nifty gadget available for just that task: Furbo, a remote-operated camera with some interesting features.At first, Furbo may remind you of an ordinary webcam.
