Rick MoranisWith a string of highly successful comedy movies in the 80s like Ghostbusters, Spaceballs, Honey, I Shrunk the Kids, and Parenthood, Canadian actor Rick Moranis star was on the rise.But in 1997, four years after he starred in buddy action movie The Flintstones, he decided to go on a hiatus that ended up lasting 18 years.Sadly, Moranis' wife died in 1991, causing him to slow down his career until finally deciding to quit for good to raise his kids full time.He was reportedly invited to make a cameo appearance in the upcoming Ghostbusters reboot, but declined.He has appeared in a few projects over the past few decades, including voice-over roles, and in his own comedy album, The Agoraphobic Cowboy, which was nominated for a Grammy in 2006.But for the most part, this hilarious actor has gone MIA from Hollywood.

Samsung Copies AppleIt s quite embarrassing that Samsung in 2016 still feels the need to blatantly copy as much as it can from Apple.And while it s one thing for Samsung to look towards the iPhone for inspiration — because let s be honest, Apple isn t shy about siphoning off features from Android either — it s an entirely different matter to see Samsung going so far as to copy Apple s advertising campaigns.DON T MISS: Leaked iPhone 7 photo shows a major change we never saw comingNow truth be told, I ve generally been a fan of Samsung s anti-Apple ads.The most recent offender is a new advert titled Captured on Galaxy S7.Fair enough, but the ad s slogan seems awfully similar to Apple s longstanding and ongoing Shot on iPhone campaign which aims to show consumers the power of the iPhone s camera.Remember when Apple introduced the Rose Gold iPhone 6s?
Sea of Thieves will be coming to Xbox One and Windows 10 in 2017, Microsoft and Rare have confirmed.Speaking to Kinda Funny in a recent video, Xbox Games Aaron Greenberg confirmed a rough early 2017 release window for the game.Sea of Thieves is coming out in that window, Scalebound, a lot more titles..."The game was previously slated to launch in 2016, but it's nice to have confirmation on when we can roughly expect to play Rare s latest adventure.Rare also confirmed that Sea of Thieves has no plans to support a free-to-play model after launch, a question that surfaced due to its largely online gameplay elements.From the developers of Viva Pinata, Banjo Kazooie and Kinect Sports, Sea of Thieves will have players team up to man their own pirate ship and sail the seven seas.You can check out the E3 2016 trailer below:Arrgh you excited?
I mitten av januari i år lanserades Swish Handel, en tjänst riktad till e-handlare.– Vi upptäckte ett problem med driftstörningar i hela swishsystemet i slutet av maj. Då gjorde vi en stor felsökning och kunde snart konstatera att det berodde på en felaktig implementering, säger Per Ekwall, presskontakt på Getswish, bolaget bakom Swish som ägs gemensamt av Danske Bank, Handelsbanken, Länsförsäkringar, Nordea, SEB samt Swedbank och Sparbankerna.Och på Swish Facebooksida trängs inlägg från besvikna och upprörda e-handlare.Vad säger ni till de e-handlare som satsat på Swish – får de någon kompensation?– Vi ser att vi har enormt förtroende hos vår bas som består av 4,5 miljoner privatanvändare som är väldigt nöjda med tjänsten.När den nya versionen av vår e-handelstjänst är ute och är stabil tror jag att vi ganska snabbt får tillbaka förtroendet där också.
Bolivia has rejected an offensive donation of 100,000 chickens from Bill Gates, saying the billionaire philanthropist should apologise for not knowing that Bolivia already has enough poultry.How can he think we are living 500 years ago, in the middle of the jungle not knowing how to produce?Respectfully, he should stop talking about Bolivia and once he knows more, apologise to us.Gates announced the chicken initiative earlier this month, writing that i t s pretty clear to me that just about anyone who s living in extreme poverty is better off if they have chickens , because they re cheap, a good investment, eggs keep kids healthy, and women can sell them.The idea was to donate 100,000 chickens to high-poverty countries.Of course, this means the gift of the chickens saddles your country with a designation that is not exactly flattering, which might be especially hard to swallow for a leftist, anti-imperialist government like Bolivia s.The chickens especially could be seen as an insult since, according to a report from the Bolivian Institute of Foreign Trade, the poultry industry including both eggs and chickens grew by 35 per cent from 2008 to 2014.
The UberEats app has more than 150 restaurants Credit: UberUber has launched a food delivery service in London, extending the company s reach in the UK beyond its car booking app for the first time.I think people will come to UberEats for the same reasons they come to Uber in the first place, said Alex Czarnecki, the general manager of UberEats in London.The rating systems of the Uber car app, which the company uses to weed out bad drivers, will be replicated for both couriers and restaurants.Uber says it has signed up thousands of delivery couriers, who will be paid a per-mile and per-delivery rate that Uber says will be equivalent to £10 an hour.Workers for both are classes as freelancers, so choose when to work and are not subject to minimum or maximum hours.These gig economy apps have been criticised for failing to provide traditional employee rights such as paid holidays, and Deliveroo has been accused of putting cyclists at risk by failing to ensure safety standards, and refusing to accept liability.
The FBI s system culls photos from driver s licenses, passport applications and visa applications to cross-reference with photos of criminal suspects.A study from the Government Accountability Office GAO released Wednesday for the first time revealed the extent of the program, which had been queried several years before through a Freedom of Information Act request from the Electronic Frontier Foundation EFF .The office recommended that the attorney general determine why the FBI did not obey the disclosure requirements, and that it conduct accuracy tests to determine whether the software is correctly cross-referencing driver s licenses and passport photos with images of criminal suspects.They guaranteed 80%, maybe 85% accuracy if the candidate is in the top 50 responses – so basically what they re saying is that it s highly inaccurate!No information on how often the database returns false positives is currently available.The reason state governments currently keep detailed facial recognition databases from driver s licenses, said Lynch, is to stymie identity theft and other crimes.
Libratone might have been founded by engineers from companies like Bowers & Wilkins and Bang & Olufsen, but the company s wild designs have definitely helped it carve out a unique space for itself in the audio world.Judging by the looks of its latest duo of speakers, those aesthetic sensibilities aren t going away anytime soon.Regardless of the sequel-inspired name for the latter, both models feature 360-degree sound, and were created with portability as one of the main design goals.The less expensive of the two new models, the Too seems to be aimed at those who want a speaker they can easily grab on their way out the door, and is available in the same colors as the One Click.Despite their small sizes, Libratone claims the two new speakers provide relatively full bass, and based on what we ve seen from the company s other speakers, this seems believable.Both speakers come with a 30-day no questions asked return policy that allows buyers to make sure they re happy with how the speaker sounds, including a return shipping label in the box if purchased from the Libratone website.

All the major technology firms have launched wearables in the hope of tapping into this emerging market, but many have failed to get gadget fans excited.Now Apple is hoping a major update to its watch can help boost sales and the firm s new WatchOS 3 operating system certainly appears to be a huge improvement over the original software.This means apps will now load instantly rather than waiting for the few frusrating seconds users currently have to bear.This allows users to quickly write letters on the display with the Apple Watch thenl converting the handwriting to text.Play VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration Time 0:00Loaded: 0%Progress: 0%Stream TypeLIVERemaining Time -0:00Playback Rate1ChaptersChapterssubtitles off, selectedSubtitlescaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedCaptionsFullscreenThis is a modal window.We'll have to wait until September to find out.
Så här fördelar sig ansökningarna över landet.Torsdag 16 maj avgörs vilka av de 110 förslagen som får chansen att kämpa om de åtta platser som ger många miljoner per år.Centren byggs upp i samarbete mellan ett universitet eller en högskola och partners från näringslivet eller offentlig sektor.– Den nya satsningen är lik de satsningar vi haft tidigare, men vi har tryckt på att centren måste vara bättre på att placera sig i innovationssystemet och veta vilken forskning som pågår inom deras områden både nationellt och internationellt.Vi har sett tidigare att det finns en risk att de isolerar sig från den övriga högskolan, säger Lena Eckerdal Rimsten, som är ansvarig för det nya kompetenscentrumprogrammet på Vinnova.Att få forskningen att verkligen göra nytta i företagen som deltar i samarbetet är en utmaning för centren och en av de viktigaste punkterna Vinnova tittar på i samband med fortsatt finansiering.

And where Sony has gone with a Matrix vibe in codenaming its Playstation-related products, Microsoft is going decidedly astrological: Project Scorpio.Scorpio, Microsoft said at its E3 media briefing in Los Angeles on Monday morning, won t be like the leap from Xbox 360 to Xbox One, where you start over again from scratch with a new machine and new game library.Your existing accessories, too, will work on Scorpio.This wasn t the only new piece of hardware Microsoft showed at its conference.If you want to keep playing the box you already have or the S model it ll release shortly , you ll still be able to play the latest games on it.In other words, consoles are shifting to a phone-like upgrade model.

Everything there is to know about what is said to be a software-focused WWDC.We'll be liveblogging the whole thing as usual, and you can join us on Monday June 13 at 10:00am Pacific 1:00pm Eastern to find out more about the replacements for El Capitan, iOS 9, and more.And "OS X" may be rebranded as "macOS" to bring it in line with the naming convention Apple established with watchOS and tvOS last year.Speaking of Apple's watch and set-top box, we know even less about the new versions of watchOS and tvOS than we do about the iOS and OS X updates.Finally, most sources are saying not to expect new hardware this year, as much as we're itching for updates to the MacBook Pro and most of Apple's other Macs, besides .It could still happen, but don't get your hopes up.
Mack Truck LR, Hybrid Electric Garbage TruckTesla cofounder Ian Wright and his company Wrightspeed teamed up with commercial truck builder Mac Trucks to create a new hybrid electric trash hauler.They featured the Mack LR Model at the 2016 Waste Expo in Las Vegas, and was a move in the right direction for resource wasting refuse vehicles.This hybrid electric truck takes an innovative approach on electric vehicle design by taking the truck s worst fuel-wasting components and then replacing them with electrical components.The LR has four electric motors, and reportedly runs 24 miles on electricity alone.Wright announced the LR is capable of charging directly from the grid, and incorporates a range extender that burns fuel, makes electricity, and charges the batteries on the go to extend the truck s range.Even though the truck is not completely electric beyond its initial 24-mile range, the real innovation comes from engineering individual mechanical components of the truck to run on electricity, and as a result, drastically reduce emissions and fuel consumption.
