When Top Gear shoots a film there are always police involved to close roads, keep the public safe and to allow the production to do things they wouldn't normally be allowed to do.According to reports though, the BBC production may have pushed the Norwegian police a little too far by driving 150mph through a tunnel.The production apparently had permission to hit 90mph in the tunnel that usually has a 50mph speed limit.The Norwegian police is now investigating, as it's unclear who was driving the car at the time.However, the BBC was quick to point out to The Drive that "neither Matt LeBlanc nor Chris Harris were with production, or in the area, at the time of this alleged infringement".As usual with Top Gear, some shots of cars being driven use production staff rather than have the presenters drive for every single pickup.
Concerns over the threat posed by cyber-attacks on power stations and electricity grids is “off the scale” in the UK energy sector, according to a leading industry figure.No other country in the world has an energy industry as worried about the risk from cyber threats, such as the WannaCry ransomware attack that recently hit the NHS, the former chief of National Grid told the Guardian.Nowhere else is as worried as the UK about cyber threats: we are just off the scale on our energy system concerns on cyber,” said Steve Holliday.He said the danger posed to energy systems was coming to the fore now because of the trend away from well-protected, centralised large power stations and towards decentralised power, such as lots of small, flexible gas power plants and solar panels on homes.There were also a growing number of web-connected devices in energy technology, he added.One obvious target is the smart meters that are being installed in every home by the end of 2020, to automate meter readings.
Brands and marketers flock to the Cannes Lions Festival of Creativity to mingle, enjoy the sun and take away key action points to implement after the festival is over.But according to consultant and entrepreneur, Charlie Crow, it is easy to be swayed by the lavishness of the festival and lose sight of the end goal.What are the main industry issues and how will they be tackled thereafter?“If I was a brand coming here, I would have two things to think about,” he says to The Drum.“First, I would look at the yachts, the lavishness, and the parties and I would say to myself as a CEO or CFO for a multinational company; that’s why I am still sceptical about advertising.”He continues: “How do all these pieces fit together?

Have you ever spent weeks or even months crafting a perfect piece of content that generated almost no response from your audience?While you might accept these disheartening flops as the cost of doing content marketing, they represent an enormous waste of time and resources.For now, the main thing to note is that minimum viable content enables you to learn what your audience is interested in and then use what you’ve learned to create big, high-effort pieces that perform well.For content marketers, that means we must test several small, low-risk pieces of content, see which ones perform best, and expand only on the most successful.The concept of minimum viable content comes from the Agile idea of a minimum viable product.Minimum viable content is the smallest stand-alone content release that does at least one of these things:
Researchers finger trojan-slinging AdGholas groupSecurity researchers have suggested that the ransomware attack on University College London last week was spread through a "malvertising" campaign.Proofpoint reckons the AdGholas group spread the infection using malware-tainted online ads.Mole is a member of the CryptFile2/CryptoMix ransomware family.On June 15, 2017, several universities in the UK including UCL and Ulster reported that they were victims of a "zero-day" ransomware attack.This was unrelated to a separate spam campaign spreading the Dridex banking trojan, Proofpoint said.

Reply threads on Facebook are about to get a lot more animated.To mark the 30th anniversary of the GIF format, all users will get the new GIF comment button that Facebook began testing three months ago.Facebook also announced that almost 13 billion GIFs were sent on Messenger over the past year, with 400 million GIFs sent just on New Year’s Day 2017.The GIF button lets people search and post GIFs from different services, like Giphy and Tenor, directly in the comments box (on desktop browsers, the GIF button also displays trending GIFs, just like in Facebook Messenger).Facebook added GIF support two years ago, but until now users had to enter the URL of a GIF hosted somewhere else.The GIF button makes the process a lot easier, especially on mobile.
This E3 has been a good one for many who are fans of playing online games with friends and strangers across different console and PC platforms.Psyonix announced that a newly announced Switch version of Rocket League would be able to interact with existing versions on the Xbox One and PC.And Microsoft announced that online Minecraft players would soon be united across Switch, Xbox One, PC, mobile, and VR platforms.Missing from both of those lists is Sony's PlayStation 4, which will keep its players segregated to the PlayStation Network for the time being.“The honest answer is PlayStation has not yet granted us permission," Psyonix VP of Publishing Jeremy Dunham told Polygon regarding the reason for the Rocket League's cross-platform block on PS4.Since Psyonix runs its own servers and since those servers have already been certified for Microsoft's strict technical and security requirements for tying in to Xbox Live, adding PS4 is "literally something we could do with a push of a button, metaphorically," he added.
Reports that Marissa Mayer, freshly resigned as Yahoo CEO, was looking forward to using former arch-rival Google’s Gmail provoked her to respond, and respond again.A day after she resigned June 13 when the company’s $4.5 billion sale to Verizon closed, Mayer took to Twitter following a media report that cited tweets suggesting she had an affinity for the mail service of the company that played a key role in the demise of Yahoo.“I’m looking forward to going back to Gmail,” was her comment, according to one tweet from a London conference.“I look forward to using Gmail again.Am always faster when using a tool I designed myself,” said the other tweet referenced in a Business Insider UK article.In her first Twitter response, Mayer, a former Google executive, linked to the article and tweeted, “I will continue to use the excellent Yahoo Mail too.
Leaked audio from a Tuesday all-hands meeting shows that Uber, still struggling to win back the public’s goodwill since the company was accused of widespread misogyny and sexual harassment earlier this year, can’t help but continue on its path of self-destruction.The ostensible purpose of the long-awaited meeting was to announce CEO Travis Kalanick’s leave of absence and a series of recommendations stemming from an investigation into the company’s culture.Finance, billionaire board member David Bonderman interjects when Arianna Huffington (the only woman on the board) speaks to the company about the merits of including more women in senior positions.This just happened at @Uber's all-hands meeting.@YahooFinance's @JPManga got some leaked audio.To recap, a billionaire septuagenarian, born just a couple of decades after women could legally vote in the US, casually cracked a joke about women talking too much at a meeting explicitly prompted by widespread accusations of misogyny.

Brands like Longchamp and Burberry are eyeing more sales as they hop on the WeChat bandwagon and set up their in-app stores.The app with nearly 900 million monthly active users is ready for a good fight with Alibaba, China’s e-commerce behemoth, in the online retail sector by bringing in luxury fashion brands.One to beckon consumers to order customized handbags, and the other to allow shoppers to post and flaunt their newly purchased handbags from its physical store in Shanghai.Innovation is the key to success,” Jean Cassegrain, Longchamp’s CEO, told local press Jiemian.There’s no Facebook, Twitter or Google here [in China] which we are more familiar with,” said Cassegrain, adding that he gives the China team quite a bit of flexibility to explore marketing channels.Indeed, it is smart for those brands to test Chinese consumer behavior via WeChat, especially when the app earlier this year optimized the process to make it easier for companies to launch multimedia campaigns and open online stores.
