Nine of February’s top 10 YouTube ads were Super Bowl spots, with Hyundai ranking No.The automotive brand’s “A Better Super Bowl,” a live video featuring US military personnel that aired in the first commercial break immediately following the game, generated 26 million views for the month.Of the nine Super Bowl spots that made last month’s ad leaderboard, seven of them ranked in YouTube’s top 10 Super Bowl ads released the day after the game: Hyundai, Budweiser, Kia, Mr. Clean, T-Mobile, Audi and 84 Lumber.Honda and Nintendo’s Super Bowl spots didn’t win enough views to make the first list, but both earned enough popularity throughout the duration of February to rank No.2 the day after the Super Bowl) made YouTube’s top 10 Super Bowl ads list but lost their momentum during the month and failed to make the February ad leaderboard.Hyundai: “A Better Super Bowl” (26M views)
Förmodligen har du stött på allt färre fuskare i League of Legends i det senaste.Något som kan ha att göra med att utvecklarna bakom spelet, Riot Games, sämt Leagusharpe, en sajt där du kan skaffa en bot som spelar åt dig för att automatiskt vinna i spelets matcher.Riots argument för stämningen var då att Leagusharps verktyg stred mot Digital Millenium Copyright Act genom att gå förbi League of Legends fuskskydd.I samma veva anklagades Leaguesharp också för att ha attackerat Riots servers, doxxat en av deras anställda och upprättat ett skalbolag för att komma undan juridiskt.Nu kommer Leaguesharp att behöva betala 10 miljoner dollar (cirka 90 miljoner kronor) samtidigt som deras mjukvara blir bannlyst och ägandet av sajten tas över av Riot Games.Leaguesharp stängde egentligen dörrarna redan i januari men det är först nu som informationen kommit ut, skriver Engadget.
You’ve probably seen enough Nokia 3310 hands-on videos to fill a long weekend, but what you’re yet to witness is the destruction of its older brother… until now.The folks over at Amazing Timelapse recently dunked the champion of the feature phone market into a vat of acetone and left it for 20 hours.The results, as you will see, were very predicable.All it took was for the lower half of the phone to be submerged for the melting process to begin, the bottom edge crinkling up like your finger tips after a long bath.It got no better for the poor device from there, its insides popping out like pillow stuffing and the acid eventually made its way into the screen resulting in Ghostbusters-esque green slime.The whole show ends with the author picking away at the carcass, parts of the softened body coming away in the same way mozzarella pulls away from a piping hot pizza.
The film Logan (2017) features several vintage-looking X-Men comic books that play a key role in the playing out of the film’s plot.This week we got the opportunity to pose a number of questions to the creator of those comic illustrations and designs, Dan Panosian.This illustrator is wildly talented in creating a wide variety of looks in his drawings and comic book designs and is also – importantly – able to illustrate, ink, and letter pages and covers for comics.Also in this image you’ll find Panosian’s own Comics Board stamp of approval – you’ll see below how the standard Comics Code Authority stamp had to be replaced.The difference between the two with the washed-out coloring and breaking up of black spots with aging effects really makes the illustration go from modern to retro in an instant.I’m not so sure they were carefully considered… Maybe they were.
Det bekräftar företaget efter att en läsare till Techcrunch rapporterat om försöken.Det handlar bland annat om tumme upp och tumme ner, men även fem andra uttryckssymboler (älskar, skrattar, förvånad, ledsen och arg).Att kunna ogilla något på Facebook har varit en lång diskussion som hittills inte fått något gehör av den sociala mediejätten.Nu har möjligheten alltså kommit till några användare av Messenger-appen, men inte Facebook-appen, ska förtydligas."Vi håller hela tiden på att testa nya sätt att göra Messenger roligare och mer engagerande.Det här är ett litet test där personer få möjligheter att dela emojis som bäst avspeglar deras känslor på ett meddelande", svarar företaget i en kommentar.
You’re going to be in charge of a giant space arc in Mass Effect: Andromeda, looking to find a new planet that humans and other sentient lifeforms can settle on.A new teaser for BioWare’s next scifi action RPG gives a glimpse of seven promising potential homes in the stars.It’s not actual gameplay footage, but the Golden Worlds briefing offers a quick tour of the best options for colonization in the far-off Helius Cluster.A voiceover snippet at about three minutes into the video hints that the game won’t shy away from the fact that some of these planets will already be home to different civilizations, and in the briefing makes reference to “first contact” protocols.This will doubtlessly be part of the exploration and alliance-building gameplay teased in another recent glimpse at Andromeda.
Despite recent advances, quantum computers are still at an early stage of development.As part of its IBM Q project, the firm plans to build "commercially available universal quantum computers" over the coming years.The announcement comes as IBM also says it is upgrading its quantum technologies already available to developers.Using the fact that subatomic particles can exist in two states (0 or 1) simultaneously, the qubits are able to store more information than traditional bits, and process information faster."As a first step to increase Quantum Volume, IBM aims at constructing commercial IBM Q systems with 50 qubits in the next few years to demonstrate capabilities beyond today’s classical systems," the company explained."IBM Q systems will be designed to tackle problems that are currently seen as too complex and exponential in nature for classical computing systems to handle."
Its wireless coverage equipment has been deployed in hospitals, airports, hotels, data centers, cruise liners, and even super yachts.ZDNet recently spoke to the company's CEO, Scott Willis to find out more.We are a wideband radio, looking to advance that to 150MHz and then all the way to 2.7GHz and beyond.In 2016 we were able to bring in a number of new customers, and so we think the value is sinking in at the enterprise level.We tend to use the phrase, 'Wi-Fi like'.Now that's because the customer does not have to pull coax from the basement of a building with all the disruption that involves.
Bred as a Wall Street alternative to Bloomberg’s messaging service, the Palo Alto startup is now targeting clients from law firms to governments.Symphony — which raised at a $1 billion-plus valuation in late 2016 — has a strategy to “increase seats” (or individual users) based on price, adaptability, and scale.On price, Symphony’s monthly product fee of $15 per head is comparatively low.Symphony is also a cheaper alternative for the Wall Street trading crowd than Bloomberg’s chat tool, which comes on Bloomberg’s Terminal analytics platform with thousand dollar plus monthly fees.“Think about manufacturing, defense, insurance, energy, which are very [business-to-business] centric and the relative value of confidentiality, of data ownership, and security of information is extremely high.”Symphony has been touted as a “Bloomberg killer”, launched by a cabal of Wall Street firms in 2014 after Bloomberg News journalists reportedly snooped on Bloomberg Terminal client messages.
Remember that time when Amazon decided it wanted to sell you internet service and cable TV?Yep, Amazon’s “Cable Store” is no more.As you may recall, around a year ago, the online retailer launched a “cable store” website where it began reselling a variety of Comcast’s services, including its internet, TV and phone bundles.The move seemed a bit odd, but perhaps fit in with Amazon’s goal of being the online site for anything consumers want to buy.That store was later expanded in November 2016, when Amazon added Frontier to the list of service providers you could shop on its site.The site itself offered a way to view and compare the providers’ most popular plans, as well as product detail pages for each of their offerings.
Just before midnight tweeted Spotify to the music service reached the historic milestone of 50 million users of the payment service.in the space of scarce ten years to build up a base of customers who on an annual basis generarar approximately sek 50 billion in revenue is really impressive.Certain it is possible to say that the music service's losses are still huge, but I'm convinced that Ek/Lorentzon with a large intäktsmassa can turn the business to profitability when they wish to do so.Even if the figure of 50 million, has a large symbolic value is still not the strategic value is even greater.It is one of techvärldens worst kept secrets to Daniel Ek at the moment, are in crucial negotiations with the world's largest record labels on new rättighetsavtal.In the negotiations is the key issue of how much compensation that Spotify would give to record labels and ultimately the artists.
Urb-it är ett av Stockholms mest omskrivna techbolag.”Urb-it har kommit mycket långt fram i sin teknikutveckling – nu är det dags att använda sig av börsen som finansieringskälla”, säger han i en intervju med Dagens Industri.Det ska enligt Dagens Industri ske redan innan sommaren.Bolaget erbjuder möjligheten att en ”Urber” inom en timme levererar varor hem till kunden från fysiska butiker.Urb-it vill på så sätt bli ett sätt för den fysiska handeln att ta del av e-handelstrenden.Enligt Breakits källor har Urb-it under en längre tid sökt nytt kapital från riskkapitalbolag, men misslyckats.
Electric vehicle (EV) charging network ChargePoint has raised $82 million in a round of funding led by German automotive giant Daimler, with participation from existing investors that include BMW i Ventures, Linse Capital, Rho Capital Partners, and Braemar Energy Ventures.Founded in 2007, Campbell, California-based ChargePoint is among the biggest EV charging networks in the world, with more than 30,000 charging stations across North America and Australia.The company has now raised more than $255 million since its inception, including a chunky $59 million infusion last May.This latest tranche represents its biggest single investment to date, and it will be used to fund the company’s mission to “lay the foundation for Europe’s most comprehensive and intelligent charging network,” according to a company statement.The latest funding actually represents part of a larger $100 million raise, but only $82 million of it has been unlocked for now — the company wouldn’t elaborate on what the additional money is contingent on or when it will be arriving.It is likely tied to ChargePoint meeting some pre-agreed targets with its investors, however.The global EV market is still modest compared to pure diesel and petrol vehicles, but it is a fast-growing market — global plug-in vehicle sales grew by 42 percent to 773 600 units last year.Emerging brands such as Tesla, whose recent fourth quarter sales grew by 27 percent, are recording greater sales with each passing year.Such a marked increase in EV uptake, be it hybrids or pure electric vehicles, bodes well for companies such as ChargePoint.“The automobile industry is at an inflection point, with more vehicles coming onto the market offering highly advanced electric powertrains than any other time in the world’s history,” said Pasquale Romano, CEO of ChargePoint.
For the longest time, millimetre wave was considered to be an unusable radio frequency, because it only works over very short distances such as a few kilometres because of high free space loss and atmospheric absorption.However, now that all of the desirable spectrum has been used up, and there's no more spectrum that can be reused from legacy technology, the mobile industry has turned back to millimetre wave for 5G.The indoor experiments and in-the-field trials so far have all had different distances and vastly varying speeds so the results cannot be compared against each other – from the record speed of 32Gbps being sent over 2.5m in a laboratory to Germany's 6Gbps over 37km to Facebook's 20Gbps over 13km.So how can we be confident on using the technology to provide next-gen wireless speeds?It doesn't have the same coverage characteristics of other frequencies [but] whether it's the beamforming or beam tracking, we've made some great improvements," Robert Topol, Intel's general manager for 5G Business and Technology, tells IBTimes UK.The major advancement in millimetre wave is maximising the data throughput and improving the coverage by the way you set up those access points and beamforming and beam tracking.

Rovio Entertainment Ltd. said it returned to a profit in 2016 thanks to increased spending on marketing and attention from the Angry Birds movie based on its well-known fowls.The privately-owned Finnish company Tuesday said it recorded a profit on earnings before interest and tax—or EBIT—of €17.5 million $85 million in 2016, compared with a loss of €21.1 million a year earlier.Revenue increased 34% to €190.3 million after falling...
[...] we're going to talk about the current state of the App Store, we're going to talk about maybe obstacles that you're facing as a developer - I think that will be relevant - maybe how to create apps, get traction, the role of automation, and a bit more about Pyze.
Tax on robots have become a hot political issue.Unemployment and reduced tax revenues threatening the welfare of robotrevolutionens tracks mean advocate in order to introduce a robotskatt.Two proponents of such a tax is the Microsoft billionaire Bill Gates and Benoît Hamon, the socialist candidate in the French presidential election.the Proceeds should help to replace the people who lose their job through, for example, a system with the so-called basic income.Read more: Economist: Every other job can go away"If the automation leads to that there will be radically fewer jobs will be robotskatten an obvious idea to look at", says Max Andersson, member of the EUROPEAN parliament for the green Party.
It is the case these days that, with some exception, most companies don’t completely reveal critical availability details for a newly announced product.And by “critical”, we mean when it will actually start selling and for how much.This gives said companies enough time to adjust their figures in between announcement and launch.The LG G6, for example, will go on sale starting March 10, at least in Korea.And that price is 899,800 KRW.Yes, that’s a rather high price to pay but it’s probably going to be less than the Samsung Galaxy S8 when it launches.
I looked at the router settings, and they seemed OK.The router showed no interference from competing networks, but the amount of traffic it logged was suspiciously high.I'd never tracked my household traffic before, so I couldn't be sure that what I was looking at the normal combined Youtube and Netflix usage of five people plus regular visitors.
