We swedes are diligent with communicating via the internet, and e-mail is still our primary channel.Nearly seven out of ten internet users use email on a daily basis.And virtually all of the swedes, 94 percent, are internet users – this is shown by the Swedes and the Internet, the major survey about our internet habits as the internet infrastructure foundation in Sweden, IIS, releases each year.This is a level which has remained steadily in the past ten years.It is not so that the e-mails are rejected by the younger as it is sometimes said usage is high in all ages.However, it is one of the services which also the older adopted: people over 76 years old use e-mail in the same or a greater extent than those in the age span 12 to 15 years.

No compatible source was found for this media.The proliferate North Korean state-sponsored hacker group Lazarus, believed to be behind numerous high-profile cyberattacks against global financial and government institutions, appears to have focused again on international banks.Lazarus is now suspected to have been behind the recent Taiwan bank cyberheist, which saw hackers steal millions from the Far East International Bank.The cyberattack on the bank involved hackers stealing money by compromising the bank's SWIFT network.The stolen funds were then transferred to several overseas beneficiaries in Sri Lanka and Cambodia – countries where Lazarus' bank heist activities have previously been detected.According to security experts at BAE Systems, the recent bank hack is reminiscent of the $81m (£61m) Bangladesh Bank cyberheist, with similar malware and hacking tools used to carry out the attack.

Delivery of food and other necessities, especially to remote areas, has been hampered by a variety of ills, including a lack of cellular service, washed-out roads, additional rainfall, and what analysts and Puerto Ricans say is a slow and insufficient response from the US government.Platforms such as Google Maps are more comprehensive on the mainland than on the island, explains Juan Saldarriaga, a research scholar at the Center for Spatial Research at Columbia University.This is because companies like Google often create maps for financial reasons, selling them to advertisers or as navigation devices, so areas that have less economic activity are given less attention.Saldarriaga recently organized a “mapathon” at Columbia, in which volunteers examined satellite imagery of Puerto Rico and added missing buildings, roads, bridges, and other landmarks in the open-source platform OpenStreetMap.While some universities and other groups are hosting similar events, anyone with an internet connection and computer can participate.Volunteers like Saldarriaga largely drive HOT’s “crisis mapping” projects, the first of which occurred in 2010 after Haiti’s earthquake.

The specs for the new iPhone 8 Plus' camera sound enticing — it's one of the most highly touted improvements on the phone.But when I was given the chance to compare the new iPhone's camera to the $9,000 Hasselblad X1D digital medium-format camera, I couldn't say no.While drawing a comparison between a Hasselblad camera that produces 51-megapixel image files and an iPhone that produces 12-megapixel image files might not be totally fair (internally, they rely on different technology to capture a photo), I wanted to see how this incredibly expensive equipment held up when it came to taking everyday, tourist-type photographs.I wanted to answer the question: when it comes to photographing your next vacation, is it worth investing in one of the best new cameras on the market, or should you stick with your iPhone?I went to photograph Chinatown — one of my favorite New York City neighborhoods because of its vibrant colors and always-busy streets — to find out.

The media industry must interrogate the quality of the data available on the market, plus learn from the errors made in the ‘desktop internet era’ if they are to truly realize the potential promised by the digitalization of TV.That was consensus among panelists at a panel event hosted by The Drum and Alphonso, to help mark Advertising Week New York.TV ad spend has traditionally been at the top of the media value chain in terms of spend, but an eMarketer report into US media spending patterns shows that it was eclipsed by digital last year.In 2017 digital ad spend in the US is set to hit $83bn this year, when the total amount spent on connected devices will eclipse that spent on TV by $10bn, according to the research house.A 2016 poll of North America marketers, asking them about their priorities demonstrates this but clearly there is a deficit when it comes to solutions in the market (or at least a perceived one).Panelists were led by Skylar Kim, Horizon, VP of digital, in their recommendation that advertisers and data suppliers ensure the quality of the data at their disposal is up to standard.

Apple CEO Tim Cook met with Emmanuel Macron on Monday in Paris but reportedly didn't quarrel with the French president over talk of changing the rules to extract more taxes from tech giants.Macron is spearheading a group of European nations in an effort to change laws that allow companies to minimize their tax burden by funneling revenue through countries such as Ireland and the Netherlands.The two didn't discus past disputes, but Cook accepted that laws are changing to hold companies accountable for taxes where profits are actually earned, Macron's office told Bloomberg.Tax deals in Europe have come under scrutiny by the EU over the past couple of years.The EU believes Ireland hasn't been collecting enough taxes and instead has been giving companies like Apple too big of a break on Ireland's already low 12.5 percent tax rate.Last year, the EU ordered Apple to pay a whopping 13 billion euros ($14.5 billion) in back taxes.

It says tens of thousands of dollars were spent on ads by Russian agents who were aiming to spread disinformation across Google’s products — including its video content platform YouTube but also via advertising associated with Google search, Gmail, and the company’s DoubleClick ad network.Asked for confirmation of the report, a Google spokesman told us: “We have a set of strict ads policies including limits on political ad targeting and prohibitions on targeting based on race and religion.Google, Facebook, and Twitter have all been called to testify to a Senate Intelligence Committee on November 1 which is examining how social media platforms may have been used by foreign actors to influence the 2016 US election.Last month Facebook confirmed Russian agents had utilized its platform in an apparent attempt to sew social division across the U.S. by purchasing $100,000 of targeted advertising (some 3,000+ ads — though the more pertinent question is how far Facebook’s platform organically spread the malicious content; Facebook has claimed only around 10M users saw the Russian ads, though others believe the actual figure is likely to be far higher.)(And, lest we forget, late last year he entirely dismissed the notion of Facebook influencing the election as “a pretty crazy idea” — words he’s since said he regrets.)Safe to say, tech’s platform giants are now facing the political grilling of their lives, and on home soil, as well as the prospect of the kind of regulation they’ve always argued against finally being looped around them.

Many were dismayed when news broke that Microsoft executive, Joe Belfiore used an iPhone and a Samsung Galaxy S7 as his main smartphones throughout his 9-month leave of absence from Microsoft.It was unusual because Belfiore played an important role in the development of Windows phone.As of now, he uses a Samsung Galaxy S8 loaded with Microsoft software and many still wonder why a man will abandon his creation for someone’s work.Today, Belfiore finally spoke on the reason he has a Galaxy smartphone instead of a Windows phone.He said that Microsoft has done all they can with apps but users are just too low for companies to invest.Of course we'll continue to support the platform.. bug fixes, security updates, etc.

Powerful and understated, the SC17 pumps out some serious pixels, but lackluster battery life and fan noise dull some of the shine.With an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 8GB graphics chip, 32GB of DDR4 memory and an available G-Sync 4K display, this EVGA is equipped for heavy lifting.This is unquestionably a desktop replacement, going toe to toe with other gaming powerhouses, like the Razer Blade Pro and the Alienware 17 R4.All three computers have a lot in common: enormous weight, screen size and price tags.CPU: 2.7GHz Intel Core i7-6820HK (quad-core, 8MB caches, up to 3.6GHz with Turbo Boost)Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 (8GB GDDR5 RAM), Intel HD Graphics 530

At long last, Google's cloud has an on-premises extension.Google came to Scale on a purely nerd-to-nerd basis as some staff had been impressed by the upstream code contributions that Scale had been making.Combined with some software-defined networking wizardry and an on-premises virtual machine, this GCP/Scale instance can be used by a customer's existing on-premises cluster for backups and disaster recovery just as they could use the traditional physical appliance to do cluster-to-cluster backups.Doing a first rollout with Google is reasonably straightforward, because Google uses KVM and nested virtualisation with KVM can be accomplished with almost zero overhead compared to running on bare metal.In theory, any service provider willing to stand up a KVM-based environment with the right configuration could also support a Scale hybrid infrastructure.Down the road, this could lead to smaller regional service providers with an existing business of being managed service providers for small businesses standing up Scale-based hybrid clouds.

One of the many perks of being human (upright walking, big brains, we can win awards) is our ability to transcend the limits of our senses.We may be un-microscopic animals, but we can still peer into the microscopic world.That’s thanks in large part to a technique called cryo-electron microscopy, which today earned three scientists—Jacques Dubochet, Joachim Frank, and Richard Henderson—the Nobel Prize for chemistry.Their work has helped reveal the shape of biological molecules like proteins by combining beams of electrons with very, very cold temperatures, in the process revolutionizing the field of biochemistry.Your traditional microscope is great and all, but an electron microscope blows it out of the water as far as resolution is concerned.And second, that beam of electrons tears biological material to shreds.
