In lieu of a traditional orientation—we’re not much for HR anyway—we think it would be more effective to outline the many, many ways in which you are screwed.For starters, you’re going to need to fill a few executive-level roles.We on the board have done you the service of putting 14 people in charge simultaneously after Travis Kalanick left.Leadership-by-clown-car is a paradigm shift we’re committed to exploring.Honestly, just please make sure that whoever you pick sets the right tone.Or better yet, instituting a way for people who experience any (or in several cases, all) of those to report incidents without being ignored or actively penalized.

I am looking to get more specific ideas about whether to prefer Partner Network or Content Marketing as our next steps.We are at the stage where we have consistent lead generation channels set and also have good number of users but now we are looking to scale and expand more.I understand that good content generates great traffic, but it takes more time to see direct results.What do you guys think about expanding partner network first?And just to let you know, we are working in fully crowded space of CRM.So you guys can assume the competition.

You may well consider QR codes as a relic of a past digital age, but leading bag-maker JanSport is having none of it.The company has recently developed a backpack that acts as a kind of QR code so the wearer can share stuff like their favorite music video or an Instagram profile or website.The backpack — part of a project aimed at repurposing fabrics as programmable devices — is currently a prototype and could be a new way for people to share interests instead of adorning their bags with stickers and patches, CNN reports.Steve Munn, president of JanSport Americas, said that while a backpack is primarily “a place to put something to eat, something to drink and something to wear … now it becomes potentially an avenue for social interaction.”JanSport partnered with MIT professor Yoel Fink, CEO of Advanced Functional Fabrics of America, to create the special QR-code backpack.Three hundred of the bags have been produced, each with their own unique design.

Nothing on the internet ever really dies, and an equally immutable fact could be nothing on the internet is ever really exclusive.Samsung smartphone owners were recently given exclusive access to Google Play Music’s “New Release Radio” station.The station is a personalized mix of new music releases — it’s updated daily and based on your listening preferences.This comes a few months after Samsung and Google partnered to make Google Play Music the default media player and streaming service on all Samsung phones.If you have a Samsung phone, once you open the Google Play Music app, you will be prompted with a notification introducing the New Release Radio as a “Samsung Exclusive.” With a simple tap of the “check it out now” button you will be able to check out the station and add it to your Music Library.Google has not released numbers on how many people are paying for its streaming music service, but this is the latest attempt at bolstering those numbers and bringing more ears to Google.

Electronic Arts managed to generate a ton of buzz at this year's E3, even though the company technically didn't hold an E3 conference.E3 2017 has ended, and as the dust settles, we have begun to look forward to the onslaught of games releasing for the remainder of the year.But just what games are players most excited to get their hands on?According to YouTube, gamers are ready to go to a galaxy far, far away.Compiling views across trailers, interviews, gameplay demonstrations, and “fan-uploaded reactions,” YouTube released its top 10 most-viewed games of E3 2017, which ran June 9-14.Somewhat unsurprisingly, Star Wars Battlefront II managed to top the list, as it received a huge amount of support from Electronic Arts during the week, including a half-hour multiplayer demonstration to end its press conference.

Of all the TVs in Samsung’s flagship line-up for 2017, one model stands out head and shoulders above the rest.The Frame might have a strange name, but its combination of wafer-thin display technology and picture-frame styling make for a TV that most of the time doesn’t look like a TV.Indeed, the idea is that you can hang it on your wall and tell people it’s actually fancy artwork.Samsung showed us The Frame back in March, describing it unusually as “a lifestyle TV.” Designed in collaboration with Yves Behar – who has also worked on the Ouya Android games console, and August’s smart door lock – it has interchangeable bezels that can be switched out to suit the room’s decor.It’s also designed both for wall-mounting and to be free-standing, with an optional “studio stand” for the latter configuration.As with the other flagship 2017 sets, there’s a 4K panel at the heart of the TV.

You can check into some unusual locations and maybe get your accommodation on the cheap if you choose Airbnb over a standard hotel or hostel, but on the other hand you're putting a lot of trust in the owner of the property.Hosts also have to trust guests to leave everything as they found it.With that in mind Airbnb is planning to make it harder for both hosts and guests to get scammed - Bloomberg reports the company is buying the startup Trooly, which specializes on running background checks through social media and other sources.In other words, it looks like you'll be able to vet other Airbnb users more easily in the future, once the Trooly technology gets integrated into the main service.Trooly has actually been partnering with Airbnb for a couple of years.Among the problems Airbnb has come up against in its nine years of existence are guests trying to circumvent the service fee by arranging bookings outside of Airbnb, and fraudulent listings being created on the site.

Ever since its premiere in 1959, we have swedes heard on the bbc Radio program this Summer, where interesting people talk and play music.Long as we made it through the classic radios, but since several years, there Summer, even as the pod.the Program is spent on the internet so that you can listen when you want to.of course, You can do it via Swedish Radio's site or the app, but a smoother way is to use the Acast, which is a free poddapp.And the really big advantage is that the technology has given us completely new players.You can listen to the Swedish Radio program that Summer, the Scouts and to-The-minute – but also on standalone applications that Task (long interviews), Lyxfällan (personal finance) and Läkarpodden (medicine).

For Dan Simons, co-owner of Founding Farmers (the most booked restaurant in the US on OpenTable), he calls his big fail his “million dollar graduate degree.” While expensive, anxiety producing, and lacking the cast of mentors and benefactors many graduate schools cultivate, he knows it paved the way for his current success.“I’d always wanted to go to grad school,” says Simons.It was a crazy stressful time, and there are certainly parts I wish we could have avoided, but in the end, I’m not sure I’d change it even if I could.That is, if your ears and eyes are tuned into some of the critical pillars of success, including your team, the experiences of others, as well as your own, and how to really use what you know.When a business struggles and fails, it often kills the relationships at the core of the business.And we’re all still together to this day.”

If you liked the book Moneyball, I highly recommend The Cubs Way, published earlier this year by Tom Verducci.It tells the story of last year’s world champion Chicago Cubs, including one of the best descriptions of Game Seven of the World Series (a contender for best baseball game ever played) and also a deep analysis into how the team was built in the first place.Theo Epstein famously helped the Red Sox break a similar century-plus championship drought 13 years ago before joining the Cubs front office five years ago.With the consent and patience of a new owner (himself a lifelong Cubs fan) Epstein proceeded to completely remake not just the Cubs roster but the organization and its culture.Epstein still used vast amounts of data as he did with the Red Sox, as most teams do now, and how Billy Beane did for the Oakland Athletics as memorialized in Moneyball.But in building the Cubs into a champion, he knew statistics and baseball skill wasn’t going to be enough.

Apple HomeKit is about to get a lot more devices.The tech giant announced Monday that devices will no longer require a piece of hardware called an MFi chip to work with its smart home platform HomeKit.This might sound like jargon at first, but the ramifications are serious: every HomeKit gadget sold thus far has required its developer to install extra hardware -- a pricey process.Without that extra barrier to entry, many more developers will likely jump aboard the HomeKit platform.The update will come this fall, with the release of iOS 11.Amazon and Google have both taken this more open approach from the beginning, and it's paid off with many more integrations.

A group of anti-nuclear campaigners have claimed Britain’s nuclear deterrent submarines are vulnerable to hackers – and their report setting out the “evidence” quotes, in part, from Wikipedia.The British American Security Information Council (BASIC) reckoned that Blighty’s four Vanguard-class nuclear missile submarines could be hacked using one of the variety of techniques that have sprung up over the last few years.“Recent suggestions that the fleet is vulnerable have sometimes been met with complacency and claims that the isolated ‘air-gapped’ systems cannot be penetrated,” said the report (PDF, 38 pages), which was co-authored by Russian security researcher Stanislav Abalmov and veteran British anti-nuke campaigner Paul Ingram, BASIC’s exec director.The report sets out the usual generic attack vectors and the factors that mitigate these – chiefly, the fact that for months at a time the boat is air-gapped from the entire outside world by virtue of being hundreds of feet below the sea’s surface.“Trident’s sensitive cyber systems are not connected to the internet or any other civilian network,” the report continues.“Nevertheless, the vessel, missiles, warheads and all the various support systems rely on networked computers, devices and software, and each of these have to be designed and programmed.

p Middagsfrid, som grundades 2007, var den första spelaren som levererade färdigplanerade matkassar med recept direkt hem till dörren.Enligt uppgifter till Breakit betalar Axfood cirka 20 miljoner kronor för bolaget."Genom köpet stärker och breddar vi ytterligare vårt erbjudande till kund", säger Axfoods vd Klas Balkow.Middagsfrid har varit ute till försäljning redan sommaren 2015.Då sattes prislappen till närmare 100 miljoner kronor men det fick de potentiella köparna att backa ur och processen lades på is.Nu betalar Axfood alltså bara runt 20 miljoner kronor för matkasse-bolaget.

p Highlighting how silly rage quitting is in a competition is a fun way to acknowledge it without glorifying those who do so.Rage quitting isn’t something anyone should be proud of doing, but winning The Manila Masters’ Battle of the Rages is an exception.The DotA 2 competition also hosted a contest for fans to show off their best rage-quitting skills, complete with screaming, throwing, and generally childish antics.While you might not expect it though, the winner’s performance was rather understated compared to the competition.Quitting an online game before it’s over is considered poor form in multiplayer games, especially ones with a heavy team focus.It’s frowned upon and punished by a number of developers, but it still happens from time to time and is just as common in Valve’s DotA 2 as it is elsewhere.

Ibland dyker de mest märkliga buggar upp.Den här buggen i Windows 7 och 8 som upptäcktes av ryska sajten habrhabr.ru är ett väldigt bra exempel på det.Om mappen som hyser bilderna till en webbplats har de fyra tecknen ”$MFT” i namnet/sökvägen får det systemet att först börja bli långsamt för att till slut krascha fullständigt.Det finns inget du kan göra åt det utöver att starta om datorn.”$MFT” är en textsträng som används i speciella metadatafiler i Windows, och systemet får spader när den dyker upp i ett mappnamn istället.Microsoft har inte kommenterat den nyupptäckta buggen, men den ser inte ut att utgöra någon säkerhetsrisk utan enbart ett möjligt irritationsmoment.

p The Body Shop has unveiled a series of clever out of home (OOH) ads in London that remove pollutants from the atmosphere.The cosmetics and skin care company has teamed up with environmental tech firm Airlabs to pilot the scheme at three high-profile and highly polluted locations in the capital.Airlabs' air cleaning system removes harmful pollutants from city air including nitrogen dioxide and particulate matter.The Body Shop has signed on to incorporate the innovative cleaning units into its OOH ads as part of its commitment to environmental activism.The posters will be active at three JCDecaux bus stops sites in New Oxford Street, Tottenham Court Road and High Holborn as part of a pilot scheme.Airlabs research shows that Central London has exceeded legal limits of N02 levels nearly every day so far this year.
