Intel has announced that it is cancelling its Intel Developer Forum (IDF) programme of events, effective immediately, just as it was about to celebrate its two-decade anniversary.First held in 1997, the Intel Developer Forum started life as a US-only biannual gathering of developers from around the globe.After its first decade Intel added a third annual event in China for those who couldn't make it to the US versions, though in recent years the company has gone back to a biannual format: one event held in the US, the other in China.Regardless of where it is held or at what time of year, IDF has always proven a hotbed of Intel-related information: over the previous years the company has used IDF to showcase everything from novel SSD overclocking and its ill-fated Larrabee graphics architecture, which would see a second life as the basis for the company's more-successful though niche Xeon Phi co-processor boards for high-performance computing (HPC), to the benefits of multi-core gaming and even the first public outings of new microarchitectures like Sandy Bridge back in 2010.Sadly for those who look forward to the company's IDF unveilings, all that has come to a crashing end.'Intel has evolved its event portfolio and decided to retire the IDF program moving forward,' a company spokespeson has explained in a terse note on the official event website.

It looks expensive, but SiteGround is still good value if you'll use its many features.The StartUp account – £2.75 ($3.40) a month initially, £7 ($8.70) on renewal – has unlimited traffic, emails accounts and databases.There's one-click install of WordPress and other apps, a powerful cPanel-based management console, and features that some hosts don't even offer in their premium accounts: basic free SSL, daily backups, Cloudflare CDN and more.One potential catch is that none of the SiteGround plans include a free domain.Even hosts who promise ‘unlimited’ space won't allow you to store 500 ISO's or your entire MP3 collection.If your website code plus database will be less than 10GB, you'll be able to use SiteGround's StartUp account.
The presence of metal on the back does make the phone look and feel more premium, but it's not as grippyThe Moto G5 Plus features an all-new design this time around, complete with a metal back and plastic sides.This is certainly an upgrade when compared to the plastic builds of its predecessors, though that metal back plate means it’s no longer removable.The presence of metal on the back does make the phone look and feel more premium, but on the other hand, the metal doesn’t provide as much grip as the plastic backs of previous Moto G devices, making the G5 Plus a touch more slippery than what you may be used to.Fake chrome has been used numerous times in the past in an attempt to give smartphones a more high-end look, and considering that it didn’t really work back then, it’s no surprise that it really doesn’t work now.The build quality is quite good overall, and aspects like the fake chrome frame are more forgivable when considering the price point of this device.
Nissan manages to keep the GT-R fresh with near-constant updates, the latest of which is this Track Edition model.The Nissan GT-R already has the nickname “Godzilla,” but it might also be appropriate to call this supercar slayer “Dorian Gray.” Despite a design that’s roughly a decade old, Nissan manages to keep the GT-R fresh and relevant with continual updates.The standard GT-R and GT-R NISMO models received a major overhaul last year, and now Nissan is rolling out a revised version of the GT-R Track Edition at the 2017 New York Auto Show.As before, the Track Edition sits between the base Premium model and the GT-R NISMO, catering to buyers who want a sprinkling of extra performance hardware, while maintaining at least a degree of civility.Like other GT-R models, the Track Edition gets revised exterior styling and a revamped interior meant to feel more upscale.The Track Edition also gets the NISMO’ models front fenders, as well as a model-specific dry-carbon rear spoiler and 20-inch wheels.

We have already seen quite a few great smartphones announced this year including the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus, LG G6, and the Huawei P10, but there are plenty more high-end devices coming this year which will go head to head with the current flagships on the market.The flagships also come with Samsung’s own digital assistant called Bixby, which is an alternative to Google’s Assistant.They are slated for a global release on Friday, April 21, but you can already pre-order them in the US and a bunch of other countries.If the company sticks to the traditional one-year release cycle, it will announce its upcoming flagship in May, with sales starting about a month later.These will allow users to perform certain tasks, like launching the camera, by simply squeezing the edges of the device.It looks like the upcoming OnePlus flagship will skip the number four due to its association with death in Chinese culture.
Retail makes up the largest category of internet ad spending, representing about 21 percent of total revenues, according to the most recent IAB report — or roughly $15 billion annually.That’s why the development of a “cost-per-(store)-visit” ad model (CPV) is potentially so significant.Some of that retailer ad spending is driven by pure-play e-tailers.While traditional retailers are suffering, more than 90 percent of consumer retail spending still happens in stores: trillions offline vs. billions online.In addition, though they’re more tech-savvy than millennials, members of so-called “Gen Z” strongly prefer to shop in stores.Internet ad revenues by industry category

US authorities are working to take down one of the world's largest botnets, which controls tens of thousands of infected computers and sends hundreds of millions of spam emails that distribute ransomware and malware across the globe.Working alongside the FBI and security company Crowdstrike, the US Department of Justice has started blocking domains associated with the Kelihos botnet, one of the most prolific networks of hacker-controlled computer systems in the world.The network of infected Windows machines has been known to send spam emails, distribute ransomware and malware, harvest usernames and passwords and engage in Bitcoin theft and spamming.It even uses peer-to-peer communications to allow each individual node to act as its own command-and-control server and its malicious activity is thought to have affected five percent of all organisations across the globe.Like other botnets, Kelihos is designed to remain undetected on the infected victim's computer, enabling it to secretly receive instructions for malicious activities and send data back to its operators.In order to aid in the disruption and dismantling of the botnet, US authorities obtained court orders from the US District of Alaska, granting them permission to redirect traffic from Kelihos-infected computers onto a substitute server run by the FBI, and record the IP addresses the machines attempt to connect to.

The Galaxy S8 has been unveiled in all its curvy glory, and there's no doubt Sammy has churned out yet another phone marvel – and one which looks like it might just steal the title of best Android phone from Google's Pixel.You're going to be paying around over £650 for it, and even more if you opt for the larger S8 .Which is why companies, such as Chinese firm OnePlus, have become so successful providing top end hardware at a price that dramatically undercuts its competitors.Is that enough to make it worth buying over Samsung's latest?The Samsung Galaxy S8 measures 8mm thick and weighs in at 155g, while the ‘Infinity’-style screen wraps around the sides of the phone to make for a distinctly sleek-looking device – even if the OnePlus 3T is a slightly thinner handset at 7.4mm.Still, that 5.8 inch (6.2-inch on the S8 ) ‘Infinity Display’ – Samsung's term for a screen that takes up almost the entire front of the handset – really does make a difference from a design perspective.
Before “Mad Men” premiered in 2007 — an astonishing 10 whole years ago this summer — AMC was known as the channel that plays old movies.But the network really stepped up its game and left its own imprint on the so-called golden age of television.While AMC hasn't had another Emmy-sweeping hit like "Mad Men" or "Breaking Bad" since those shows finished, it has continued to make innovative shows that focus on great writing and acting, like "Better Call Saul," which has its season-three premiere on Sunday.Some AMC shows are good, but some of them, as it goes with any network, are total duds.We took to Metacritic, which aggregates reviews and assigns each season of a show a score based on them, to rank every AMC scripted series according to critics.We included every scripted show, but left out unscripted series like "Talking Dead," "Rdie with Norman Reedus," and "The Pitch." Here's every AMC show ranked from worst to best, according to critics: View As:
We’ve gone over several methods to help you grow your audience, from basic visibility tips and optimization, to working with the coopetition and doing outreach.Being an early player on a new network gives you a visibility advantage relative to mature networks, simply on a numbers basis.If the smaller network you identify and put actual effort into should manage to go from 100,000 to 1,000,000 or 10,000,000 you will almost certainly see your personal audience increase accordingly, and can translate back to your other network profiles as friends and followers that discover you on the new platform will be more willing to also follow you on the existing, mature platforms.Vine is ideal for a couple of reasons:It offered an explosion of growth where new talent was discovered due to the novel concept of short format videos that attracted new social media users.Steve Bowbrick knows what I’m talking about.
Updates provide more data and add transparencyFacebook is rolling out a handful of new tools that let marketers take a deeper dive into campaign performance in hopes of providing more transparency about how ads do on the social network.a redesign of its Delivery Insights dashboard to provide more metrics about ad campaigns, including impressions, amount spent and cost per result.The updates also include letting advertisers know when certain audiences overlap in a way that affects performance or when certain users are overexposed to certain ads.The tools come as Facebook continues to assure advertisers that their ads are performing as Facebook says they are after the revelation in 2016 that the tech company inflated video viewing numbers for as long as two years.(Facebook has since apologized, explaining it as an unintentional error that didn’t greatly affect the billable parts of campaigns.)
A couple years ago, researchers discovered what they called the ‘most important planet found outside [our] solar system,’ the exoplanet named GJ 1132b.While this planet is itself far too hot to sustain life, researchers had said that if GJ 1132b has an atmosphere, that’ll be a monumental discovery indicating other — potentially cooler — planets nearby may likewise have an atmosphere.That makes this latest discovery all the more exciting: GJ 1132b does, indeed, have an atmosphere.Get Fast Shipping & Better Pricing.This marks the first time researchers have discovered an Earth-sized planet other than Earth that contains an atmosphere, marking a milestone for space research.This exoplanet is orbiting around the dwarf star known as GJ 1132, and it boasts a mass about 1.6 times greater than Earth’s.
