A couple of years ago Matador first crossed our radar with a giant tear-proof emergency blanket that folded smaller than a wallet.Since then the company has introduced countless other collapsible products that make packing for a trip much easier, but its new Beast 28 adventure backpack is easily its most impressive feat of engineering.Have we seen collapsible backpacks before?Of course we have, but they tend to be lightweight, flimsy, and really only useful for carrying stuff in an emergency.Try to use one for a hike into the woods and you d find yourself limited in what you can carry, and returning home with a sore back.When packed up for travel, the Beast 28 looks like nothing more than a collapsible travel blanket.
Hur hanterar Google den intressekonflikt som uppstår när man marknadsför allt fler egna produkter samtidigt som man konkurrerar med andra om sina egna annonsplatser?Den frågan ställer amerikanska Wall Street Journal.Och enligt ett stickprov bland 25 000 sökningar ser det inte helt bra ut.Där hamnar nämligen Googles och dess systerföretag, som Nest, egna produkter i topp i 91 procent av fallen.Sökningarna gjordes på en mängd olika produkter från bärbara datorer och högtalare till kolmonoxiddetektorer.Efter att tidningen delat resultaten med Google i mitten av december försvann dock många annonser och i en andra analys den 22 december hade andelen Googleannonser i toppen sjunkit till 19 procent.

The camera market has long been segmented into three basic categories: Cameras for professionals, models for the so-called serious hobbyists, and models for the newcomer.The market for aerial photography aka drones with real cameras on them is about 150 years younger, and therefore somewhat less segmented.This compact, low-priced $500, cheap for a UAV flyer is the drone equivalent of a cellphone camera, complete with an over-emphasis on selfies.As someone who falls somewhere between the professional and serious amateur markets which is to say I make money off drone cameras, but have not, thus far, felt the need for a pro level drone like the DJI Inspire 2 my first instinct was to scoff at the Breeze.Would I bring it to a high-end real estate photo shoot?The Breeze is lightweight and designed to fit in a backpack, though at 13 ounces, it still needs to be registered with the FAA.
Earlier today, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration published a detailed report absolving Tesla of fault in a May 2016 crash.That incident saw a Tesla under the control of semi-autonomous Autopilot software run into the side of a truck trailer, which subsequently saw critics freak out about the unsafe deployment of beta software to the nation s roads.Not only did the NHTSA report absolve Tesla of any blame in the accident, but analysis and testing of the Autopilot system found that across Tesla s fleet, the deployment of Autopilot reduced accidents by around 40 percent.Sorry, humans: we re all bad at driving, and even the first generation of trial software is better at paying attention than your brain on Red Bull.The NHTSA took mileage and airbag deployment data from Tesla and conducted an analysis to see how Autosteer affected the number of accidents that Tesla vehicles were involved in.This isn t looking at the number of deaths per miles driven with Autopilot — that number is still around one in 250 million — but rather, how many total accidents vehicles equipped with Autosteer were involved with.
If you want to make a lot of money selling digital ads, you need to win over direct-response advertisers, like Google and Facebook have, Twitter is trying to and Snapchat now wants to do as well.Following the footsteps of Google, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Pandora, Snapchat will start targeting and measuring ads on its platform based on what people buy outside of Snapchat, the company announced on Thursday.The new purchase-based ad targeting options will be available for all ad formats on Snapchat, whether brands buy those ads directly from Snapchat or through a third-party ad-buying firm that uses Snapchat s Ads API.Snapchat will use Oracle Data Cloud s syndicated audience segments.The list of roughly 100 categories takes Oracle s data tracking people s online and offline purchases and organizes them into un-branded segments like cosmetics shopper and consumer tech shopper.If people don t want to be advertised to on Snapchat based on data collected outside of Snapchat, they can opt out of the targeting through the Snap Audience Match preference in the app s settings section.
Though GarageBand still primarily serves as a "light" version of Logic built around the same engine, version 2.2 allows iOS users to save tracks directly to iCloud-synced Logic files, which could be useful for jotting down ideas when you're not at your computer.It picks up a version of the Alchemy synth feature added to Logic back in 2015.And it also adds support for third-party effects that use , a "multi-take recording" feature that lets you quickly record over, compare, and replace different takes on a given track, an Audio Recorder feature, and more.
People holding out for 3D TV to become a thing are going to have to wait another 20 years or so, as LG and Sony have now joined the list of companies to have binned all support for 3D viewing in their newest TV ranges.Cnet spoke to LG product development man Tim Alessi, who said: "3D capability was never really universally embraced in the industry for home use, and it's just not a key buying factor when selecting a new TV.Purchase process research showed it's not a top buying consideration, and anecdotal information indicated that actual usage was not high."So hardly anyone bought it, and those that did never used it.Another massive win for the tech world's love of telling us what we need.Alessi says HDR is the future of making men upgrade their screens instead, seeing as if doesn't need special glasses, adding: "We decided to drop 3D support for 2017 in order to focus our efforts on new capabilities such as HDR, which has much more universal appeal."
data scientists get to work now in many companies, but the sector studies for start-Gartnerilla's gloomy forecast: graduation by the need for labour has decreased by automation.Gartner predicts that more than 40% of data scientists work at automating is the year 2020.the Company believes that data and analytics easier: because of their users to find the specific skills, rather than more and more other work items under.These data to the understanding of the other sectors components of Gartner used the term citizen data scientist, i.e. freely translated by citizens ' data scientist.the research company believes that already in 2019, their own action along with analytics use people bypass the actual data scientist required by the analysis tasks as factors, when the meter is made of the number of analyses.
Business use of mobile apps is exploding, and with good reason.As a result, many mid-market and enterprise companies now need dozens to hundreds of business workflow mobile apps for their workers.These mobile apps can yield big benefits in cost reduction, increased productivity, and worker job satisfaction.But many of these organizations can t keep up with the demand for a high number of custom coded mobile business apps.It s simply too costly and takes too long to go the custom coding development route.And in many cases, it s not necessary to use custom coding, because new Rapid Mobile App Development RMAD platforms empower citizen developers who have just modest technical skills to create robust mobile apps for a fraction of the time and cost of custom coding.Gartner Research projects that by 2018, more than half of all business-to-employee B2E mobile apps will be created by enterprise citizen developers using codeless tools.Forrester Research projects the market for such citizen developer mobile no code/low code platforms to be some $3 billion by 2020.This is a big deal.So, what s the profile of a citizen developer?Citizen developers do not need true coding skills.

The development begs the question of whether Julian Assange, the WikiLeaks founder, will surrender to US authorities.Assange has been living in a self-imposed exile in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London, amid fears he could be charged in the US for exposing the secrets Manning had leaked to the whistleblowing site.Five days ago, Wikileaks : "If Obama grants Manning clemency Assange will agree to US extradition despite clear unconstitutionality of DoJ case."WikiLeaks did not immediately respond for comment.
Members of this big family morph into deadly CREs when they develop or acquire genes that code for resistance to carbapenems—a group of antibiotics used to treat severe infections that are often already resistant to several other antibiotics.These carbapenem resistance genes come in several types and are often on mobile pieces of DNA or on shareable loops of DNA called plasmids.In other words, there s a bunch of them and they can spread around frighteningly easily.Bacteria can share resistance with their comrades or even to distant relatives; can spread resistance genes to neighboring , for instance.In the US, those two are the most common CREs.
There s an old philosophical question that s so familiar, it s almost a joke: if a tree falls in the forest, does it make a sound?But this thought experiment is more serious than it seems.The puzzle can be restated as: if something is unobserved, can it be said to have happened?I m not going deep into the potential philosophical paradox here, but for the sake of this blog post, let s reframe the question with account based marketing ABM in mind: If your ABM program is influencing your target accounts and you don t know about it, are you really influencing your accounts at all?The question is -of course- yes and no.Yes, your efforts are moving the needle with your target accounts; but the answer is no if you have no way of validating it.
Vr-företaget Oculus köptes av Facebook för nästan tre år sedan.Satsningen på vr ses som en viktig del av strategin framåt för Facebook och Oculus Rift blev det första vr-headsetet på marknaden tidigare i år.Men nu stäms Facebook på två miljarder dollar, nära 18 miljarder kronor, av företaget Zenimax som äger spelföretaget Id Software.En summa lika stor som den Facebook betalade för Oculus.Zenimax hävdar att Id Softwares tidiga innovationer i vr har använts i Oculus Rift.I skärningspunkten för striden står Oculus teknikchef John Carmack som tidigare arbetat på Id Software och ses som hjärnan bakom spelsuccéer som Doom och Quake.
Third-largest soccer brand partners with UberManchester United has partnered with Uber as a way to ease match attendees transportation to and from game, and to help the team expand upon its sizeable global reach to Uber's customer base.In Manchester, the company is creating a dedicated Uber pickup and drop off zone at Old Trafford, creating a convenient and safe way for all fans to travel to and from games.Uber also provide Manchester United with the opportunity to show content to and organize fans in the ride-hailing company's 30 global markets.Possible opportunities include distributing behind-the scenes content and organizing and driving fans to watch games together at supporter bars and clubs.The deal makes sense for a global brand like Manchester United.
Juniper Research estimates a 40% growth in smartwatches market by 2020.Juniper Research has found that despite the fall in the number of high-end smartwatches, hybrid watches still seem to remain unaffected by market reduction.Although basic smartwatches are expected to account for around 30 percent of the current market value, this share is expected to grow to almost 40 percent in the next five years, according to Juniper.It is also anticipated that less than 60 million smartwatches are to be shipped annually by 2021, disregarding the fact that no must-have use cases have been seen to emerge for multifunctional smartwatches.Juniper s research, Smartwatches Trends, Vendor Strategies and Forecasts 2017-2021 , found that as the high-end multifunctional smartwatch market sees a decrease in pace, vendors are likely to refine or remover unpopular functionalities leading to a stronger focus on fitness and health.Multifunctional smartwatches are seen to be the most visible smartwatch category, but due to the change in initial interest, the segment varies.
Nvidia s Shield line of devices is now more than six years old, and the latest member of the family is the new Shield TV, an update of Nvidia s first set-top streaming box from 2015.The 2017 version slims down the console to a remarkably portable rectangle, adds a redesigned controller with a built-in ambient microphone, and includes a more traditional wand-like remote in the box.The $199 device or $299 for a larger version with a built-in 500GB hard drive has big ambitions: Nvidia wants Shield TV to be not only the only streaming TV box you need, but also a gaming console, a smart home device and a personal digital assistant all in one.Software makes it feel like a completely new device, however – and that s going to benefit both existing users and those new to the Shield platform.There s a much less confusing games section that groups all content under one broad Games category, for instance, which replaces the Shield Hub app.More generally enjoyable additions with this software update include the ability to adopt external storage as native, which means you can plug in external flash drives via the two USB ports on the back and have those act as fully accessible storage space for games and media.
Stiftelsen som specifikt riktar in sig på att finansera techbolag med ett samhällsförbättrande syfte, har under de senaste månaderna gjort sina lokaler i de gamla spårvagnshallarna inflyttningsbara.Nu står huset ett stenkast från Stureplan i Stockholm klart.Det finns två syften med huset.Det ena är att skapa ett kreativt kluster där vi för samman bolag som försöker göra världen bättre med grymma techbolag som vi inspireras av.På det viset kanske de hittar gemensamma lösningar , säger Erik Engellau-Nilsson, nytillträdd vd för Norrsken.Det andra är att skapa en hajp kring socialt entreprenörskap och vi hoppas kunna skapa nästa generations rockstjärnor.
