Much like in a triathlon – the trifecta of swimming, biking, then running – it’s hard to be good at all three disciplines.B2B marketers are familiar with the concept of selling into specific accounts and building relationships that lead to ongoing sales, renewals, and referrals.ABM requires coordination between marketing and sales, which, in many companies, spend more time arm wrestling (as we like to call it at R2i) than aligning.There’s no point in marketing to an account if the sales team won’t pursue it.Thus, ABM often dies because marketing and sales can’t agree on the basics.target account, channel target, services target) to produce useful segments in ABM tools

Changes in the ownership of domains used by Kodi piracy addons to stream pirate content have raised concerns that anti-piracy groups could be monitoring the streams.TorrentFreak reports that after TVAddons shut down back in June, several of the domains it used for streaming pirated content have been transferred into the ownership of a Canadian law firm.With this firm now in control of the domains questions are being raised about whether the firm is monitoring their traffic, which would in turn report user’s IP addresses.There have been multiple reports recently about the legality of buying, selling, and using Kodi streaming boxes.Sellers of piracy-enabled Kodi boxes is definitely illegal, but so far the courts haven’t gone after buyers and users of these boxes.However, with the IP addresses of illegal streamers this law firm could potentially be in a position to go after these individuals in the future.

Buy them in a store or online, and your misstep becomes painfully clear just a few squint-intensive hours later.These seven sunglasses are our favorites, and while only a couple of models are perfect, just about any of them will help you enjoy the dog days of summer.For just $10, Joopin's retro-styled sunglasses could easily be used as backup shades.It's hard to tell if they're actually polarized (as the Amazon page claims) but if they are, these shades are clearly not made with the same quality of polarized glass as the other more expensive pairs on this list.You get what you pay for though, and these should do fine in a pinch.For less than three Jacksons, you get a light and durable set of sunnies with an azure tint that will turn your world blue.

The Glaukar lens can help photographers create that vintage aesthetic without ditching the digital camera.Pairing a vintage lens with a modern camera helps bring that older aesthetic to digital photography — and photographers with a flair for the vintage could soon have another lens to choose from.Two German photographers and an optical engineer are working together to bring a century-old lens back to modern cameras, the Emil Bush Glaukar 97mm f/3.1 lens.Now fully funded with more than twice the original goal on Kickstarter, the Glaukar lens is expected to bring a smooth gradation from sharp to out-of-focus, along with strong colors and bokeh, the designers claim.The lens is inspired by the original of the same name created by German lens maker Emil Busch in 1910.According to the developers of the updated lens, the first Glaukar was the first anastigmatic lens for portraits, or the first to correct for astigmatism as well as spherical aberration and coma lens errors.

Super Mario 64 still has plenty of fans the world over, so to launch an N64 Classic Edition without it would be a bad move.Mischief Makers puts you in the role of the robot Marina as she attempts to save her creator, who has been kidnapped by an evil emperor.Mischief Makers is an interesting title in that much of the gameplay revolves around shaking and throwing objects you find in the world.Rare made a lot of quality games for the Nintendo 64, but even with greats like Goldeneye, Perfect Dark, and Banjo-Kazooie in its portfolio, one Rare game that continues to stick out to me is Jet Force Gemini.A third-person shooter that almost feels like Starship Troopers for kids, the game puts you in the shoes of three Jet Force Gemini soldiers as they attempt to fight off an invading insectoid army.Pokemon Stadium put Pokemon battles on the big screen, while Pokemon Puzzle League was a very addictive entry in the Tetris Attack series.

It’s one of these articles that could be described as hit or miss.The image comes from the Twitter account of Arun Maini and presumably shows a true render of the most awaited Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 flagship model, scheduled to be unveiled in the coming months.Obviously there’s a ton of renders strolling around all over the internet show we have to be careful what to believe and what not to.So having all of the above in your thoughts, enjoy the render of the device, that has an impressive bezel less display with no space left for a selfie camera, touch buttons, fingerprint sensor or… any other kind of front facing sensors (I guess).According to the leakster this could be the design of the next Mix model, with almost non-existent bezels, meaning that there’s no place for a selfie camera.Some say that the camera could pop out from the top of the phone, but as always we have to be careful with this type of leaks.

Oracle’s public cloud within a customer data centre gains SaaS, PaaS, and IaaS servicesOracle has expanded its Oracle Cloud at Customer service, which allows customers concerned about data privacy to deploy Oracle’s public cloud in their own data centres.Launched in 2016, the Oracle Cloud at Customer service was intended as a workaround for those organisations who, whilst eager to move enterprise workloads to the cloud, had been previously held back by legislative or regulatory requirements.Now in an effort to tempt cloud laggards to use this service, Oracle has added full SaaS, PaaS, and IaaS services to the offering.Oracle said that it has significantly expanded the breadth of services available through Oracle Cloud at Customer, which it says has seen ‘unprecedented growth‘ in the past year since its launch.The platform has all of the major Oracle PaaS categories, but now for the first time, also features Oracle SaaS services.

The 94-year-old added his handprints and footprints to the Hollywood Walk of Fame on July 18, and while he was there, he revealed to Variety that he has dozens of other characters he still plans to unveil sometime in the future.“I have about 50 [characters] that I’ve already developed that I haven’t shown to anybody,” he said.It sounds like Lee is sitting on so many additional superheroes that he doesn’t necessarily feel pressured to dream up more.He indicated as much, saying, “There’s no need for me, really, to do any more now.”Die-hard fans might not agree with that sentiment, but it is true that the superheroes we already have are keeping us plenty entertained at the moment.Still, these top-secret, still-to-be unveiled characters sound promising, and we’re certainly curious to learn more about them.

The profile of cyber security in general has been raised to a record high in the last couple of years, with instances such as the WannaCry ransomware attack hitting headlines globally.With attacks on critical infrastructure increasing, we should be very concerned.The attack is able to take direct control of electricity substation circuit breakers using industrial communication protocols, this means that power stations, transportation control systems, water, and gas plants are all potential targets.Awareness to these risks is a major factor in the success of these simplistic approaches.Eugene Kaspersky, cybersecurity expert, and CEO of Kaspersky Labs issued a warning to the world that we could be on the brink of turmoil, with hackers closing in on the features of critical infrastructure.The move to attack the infrastructure of another nation, with the intention to potentially commandeer it is extremely frightening, and potentially foreboding of the future of warfare.

Since going public last month, things have not gone particularly well for Blue Apron, thanks to the specter of Amazon and its $13.7 billion acquisition bid for Whole Foods.The bad news, again, continues to roll in as what may have been a competitor in theory now seems more and more like an existential threat.Blue Apron’s shares are down another 10 percent today, continuing a streak of mistrust and misfortune on the public markets since making its debut.That seems on the heels of evidence of its ambitions in the meal-kit market through the form of trademark filing earlier this month.Amazon is well known to bulldoze its way into new, sometimes perpendicular markets — like minting a $10 billion plus business in server farms and buying a video game live-streaming company — and now it looks like the company has set its eyes on meal-kit delivery.That’s seems for good reason, too.

Owners of some Windows 10 laptops and tablets are crashing into a worrying roadblock when they try to install the Windows 10 Creators Update.Windows Update initially says the notebooks are compatible with the upgrade, but fails to install it after downloading the setup files, instead displaying the following message: “Windows 10 is no longer supported on this PC.Uninstall this app now because it isn't compatible with Windows 10.”That sounds ominous, but you don’t need to uninstall your existing version of Windows 10, and there’s no app to uninstall.Here’s what you need to know about the error, which affects early 2-in-1 PCs powered by Intel’s Clover Trail processors.Microsoft won’t let affected hardware install the Creators Update because “Icons and/or text throughout the Windows interface may not appear at all, or may appear as solid color blocks on some devices.”
