Imagination's share price immediately fell off a cliff as a result.Shares jumped 20% on Thursday as buyers look to grab a bargain.UK tech company Imagination Technologies has put itself up for sale less than three months after Apple said it no longer wants to use its chip designs.Hertfordshire-based Imagination Technologies said in May that it was planning to sell off two core business units but on Thursday it announced that the board has decided to put the whole company on the market.The decision comes after Imagination received interest from a number of parties, Imagination said in a statement on its website, adding that preliminary discussions with potential bidders are already underway.Apple's decision to ditch Imagination was a huge blow for the UK tech firm, which recorded a revenue of more than £120 million ($149.4 million) in the year leading up to April 2016.

Perhaps you remember a leaked video that appeared last week, purportedly showing a vivo smartphone with an in-display fingerprint sensor (embedded in the screen), but apparently that was fake.This however doesn’t mean that vivo isn’t indeed working on such technology, and today’s rumors hint that this could become reality.Today a teaser poster from the company has revealed that Vivo might be working on the same technology and is going to introduce it at the Mobile World Congress Shanghai exhibition that is taking place on June 28th.The teaser mentions: “Unlock the future” and the message is paired with what looks like the outline of a fingerprint going through the outline of a phone – one can easily think that we’re talking about an in-display scanner similar to what we saw last week on that fake video.As always we have no official confirmation that any of the above will happen for sure, so you’d better take them with a pinch of salt.After all this is just a purported teaser, and the company hasn’t yet said anything official about coming out with a smartphone featuring such a sensor.

Nearly everything about the customer experience is changing because of digitalisation —including the role of the CMO.Evolving technology means there are more touch points between brands and customers than ever before and the purchase decision path has consequently become more complex.Today the CMO has a far bigger seat at the boardroom table than ever before, as revealed in a study from Deloitte stating that 75 per cent of CMOs see their role as increasingly influential to business success.The objective for today’s CMO is to build a valuable and personalised experience that harnesses data representing a complete view of the customer across all channels.This means driving a digitally centric business model with responsibilities reaching far beyond traditional marketing —technology, analytics, growth and, above all, measurable impact on revenue.The strategic synergy that digital provides leads to CMOs making considerable investments in technology.

Four people are missing and nearly a dozen homes were flooded after a rare tsunami struck the west coast of Greenland on Saturday.Initial reports attributed the giant wave to a magnitude four earthquake, but speculation is emerging that the highly-localised tsunami was actually produced by a massive landslide.“After the earthquake in Nuugaatsiaq we were made aware that the forces of nature can suddenly change...what happened is tragic and my thoughts are with everyone from Nuugaatsiaq.”A video captured by Olina Angie K. Nielsen shows the panicked moment when the wave hit the village.In classic tsunami fashion, the ocean appears to move inland, flooding dwellings and damaging structures, and then receding back into the ocean.Helicopters and medical staff were dispatched to the village, and some 39 residents have been evacuated.

When someone goes missing, their friends or family can provide a photo for police to circulate in case they are recognized by a member of the public.When it comes to longer-term missing person cases, however, police can take an image of the person as they were when they disappeared, and then age it to show how their appearance might have changed over time.The results can be extremely helpful — but also subject to plenty of imprecise guesswork.What researchers there have developed is a method for — or so its creators claim — more accurately aging facial images, courtesy of some smart machine-learning technology.“In our work, we teach the computer by presenting hundreds to thousands of face images and the corresponding ages,” Ali Maina Bukar, a researcher on the project with expertise in facial analysis and synthesis, told Digital Trends.“Thereafter, having learned the human aging process, the machine explicitly progresses images on the fly.

NAS and SANs were typically used for backups and replication of important data and were bolted onto the rest of the infrastructure.It was for data not required by applications instantly.The focus was on cost and ease of maintenance and it played little role in central enterprise technology planning.Storage had to be cheap but reliable and for many industries was an important part of corporate governance and compliance.In house storage and back-up systems cannot compete with cloud providers on price or ease of use.You can call up more storage resources instantly and you don’t have to pay for capacity you’re not using and you don’t lose space in your data centre.

Some of today’s greatest minds seem to think that it’s entirely plausible that the world as we know it is little more than a giant simulation.Neil deGrasse Tyson in 2016 pegged the probability of such scenario at 50 percent while Elon Musk thinks there’s a one in a billion chance that we’re in base reality.If true, the amount of processing power that would be needed to pull off a simulation that’s indistinguishable from base reality would be orders of magnitude greater than anything we can even fathom at this point in time.Indeed, we’ve only barely scratched the surface of mapping the visible universe using our own cutting-edge technology.Researchers at the University of Zurich in Switzerland have spent the last three years creating what is now the largest simulation of the universe.The code they developed, known as PKDGRAV3, was created specifically to take advantage of resources afforded by a supercomputer – in this case, the Piz Daint supercomputer located at the Swiss National Computing Center (CSCS).

Scientists at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory have begun the latest chapter in the quest to explain how the universe works at the smallest, most invisible levels of particle physics with the help of a very large and well traveled superconducting electromagnet.On May 31, the Muon g-2 experiment at Fermilab kicked off its search for mysterious particles or forces that could upend our fundamental understanding of what holds everything together.Muons are one of a number of elementary particles known to exist, according to the standard model of particle physics, and research into muon properties from around the turn of the 21st century at Brookhaven National Lab in New York have yielded some surprising results that demanded a closer look.To make that possible, the 50-foot-wide electromagnet from the Brookhaven experiments was transported via a very long barge ride and a specially-designed truck to Fermilab in 2013, where it is now paired with the lab's intense beam of muons to follow up on some of the questions raised by the experiments at Brookhaven."Getting the magnet here was only half the battle," said Muon g-2 experiment project manager Chris Polly in a release."Since it arrived, the team here at Fermilab has been working around the clock installing detectors, building a control room and, for the past year, adjusting the uniformity of the magnetic field, which must be precisely known to an unprecedented level to obtain any new physics."

p Samsung's Galaxy S8 is one beauty of a phone but it's still missing one promised feature, the Bixby virtual assistant.This is the case in the US at least, disappointing since Samsung said it would debut on the company's flagship handset.Launched on April 21, Bixby failed to make an immediate appearance.To explain this absence, the electronics giant clarified that of its assistant did actually make it to the S8, such as "Vision, Home and Reminder" and that the main Bixby Voice function will arrive on US versions of the phone "later this spring."Unfortunately that deadline has come and gone.It might not be astronomically correct according to the Farmers Almanac, but in America summer starts Memorial Day weekend (this weekend just gone).

Määräaikaisissa työsuhteissa olevien henkilöiden palkkatulot jäävät myöhemmässä työelämässä pysyvissä työsuhteissa olevien palkkatuloja paljon pienemmiksi.Asiasta kertoo Palkansaajien tutkimuslaitoksen Talous ja Yhteiskunta -lehti.Pidemmällä aikavälillä määräaikaisten ja pysyvässä työsuhteessa olevien palkkaerot kapenevat, mutta ne eivät silti yllä samalle tasolle.Määräaikainen työskentely vaikuttaa selvästi kielteisesti myöhempään palkkakehitykseen.Kun palkkoja seurattiin kahdeksan vuoden ajan, havaittiin, että määräaikaisessa työsuhteessa olleen palkkatulojen yhteismäärä oli noin 15 prosenttia pienempi kuin jos henkilö olisi ollut pysyvässä työsuhteessa.Myös työpaikkojen laatu on määräaikaisissa työsuhteissa keskimäärin pysyviä työsuhteita heikompaa.

p It may contain the root word “ad,” but the realities of the current ad tech world could not be further from its impetus.There is no thoughtful creative, no careful planning and targeting involved.Countless large brands have pulled out of these streams entirely, forcing Google most of all to reevaluate how it does business with regard to ads and brand safety.Turns out, context does matter to advertisers.Advertisers have been sold down the river, and they’ve lost their focus on delighting the consumer with the creative they deliver.Ad tech promised clicks and eyeballs — those imperative measurables for any advertising budget — but never expanded on the solution it was providing.

One day they’re titans of the tech industry; the next, their ideas are rightly referred to as “toxic assets.” And with millions in funding and an ever-moving finish line, that unpredictability leads to constant backstabbing and double-crossing.That zero-sum dynamic applies to rivalries within Pied Piper as well as without.But in the cases of frenemies Gilfoyle (Martin Starr) and Dinesh (Kumail Nanjiani) and the hostile partnership of Erlich (T. J. Miller) and Jian-Yang (Jimmy O. Yang), that antagonism takes on racial overtones that reinforce pernicious stereotypes about Asians in tech and other industries.Silicon Valley grapples with the difficulty of translating genius into profit—but only its white characters get the privilege of suffering that dilemma.Loyal Jared (Zach Woods) has come through for his team time and again by looking at the larger picture when the rest could only focus on the details.And Erlich, who last season conjured up a $6 million bidding war over lunch, continues to turn stems and seeds into medicinal-grade sativa.

p Hola kind people of Reddit.Last year I had a small e-commerce business to dull the boredom of being unable to work.I'm still sick but I stopped trading due to moving home, I have been putting off resuming trading because the artistic side of it (hand making products) just doesn't excite me.I spent so much time last year learning as much as possible about social media marketing and SEO, and I quickly found that the more I learned the more passionate I felt.I'm still sick but I would absolutely love to learn all about marketing, ideally doing a distance learning course that is a recognised qualification, and start from the very basics.What I'd really love to know is what would you, as an employer, be looking for on a CV?

p At C2 Montreal, marketers from companies including Molson Coors and The North Face gathered to discuss what exactly brand purpose means in today’s world.Christine Jakovcic, chief marketing & consumer excellence officer of Molson Coors Canada, said that this can be particularly difficult when it comes to beer marketing.“In the very competitive and crowded beer category, it is very difficult for brands to really have meaningful purpose and a meaningful place in the hearts and minds of consumers,” she said.“One of the big things that we’ve learned is that going back to our authentic core truth of what we stand for is what’s working with consumers right now.”Jakovcic said that Molson Canadian recently harkened back to its roots to celebrate Canada’s 150th anniversary this year.Since Molson has been brewing beer in Canada since before the country was even officially founded, the beer brand is celebrating the anniversary with a campaign called ‘A Taste of Who We Are’ that stars seventh-generation family member Geoff Molson and puts a spotlight on what it means to be Canadian.
