It seems as though people are enamored with the power and versatility of a vacuum, as Shark's IonFlex spot by Madras Brand Solutions garnered the most votes by our readers to make it the US Creative Work of the Week.The 30-second spot for vacuum maker Shark uses muscle car-style imagery and close-up shots of the lightweight, cordless model sucking up even the toughest and heftiest dirt, candy and aquarium rocks, while being able to bend under couches and across floors.Shark, known perhaps more for its infomercials, went for a tougher tone than the usual vacuum ads, and Madras enlisted production company the Marmalade, which used a robotic arm-held Spike camera for intense close-ups on the mechanical action.To see the full spot, click on the Creative Works box below.If you’d like to vote for next week’s US Creative Work of the Week, visit our US Creative Works here.To keep up to date with all the advertising, design and creative projects from around the globe visit our Creative Works homepage.

We’re just a few hours away from getting official specs details on the upcoming Huawei Mate 10 and Mate 10 pro, and while we have already had countless leaks and renders of the upcoming devices, it looks like there’s no end in sight to the leaks pouring in, with the latest one revealing just the retail package of the base Huawei 10.So while we await the big unveiling and possible pre-order, here’s what the Huawei Mate 10 retail box will look like once it hits your doorstep:Other than the fact that it looks like a photo that was hurriedly snapped by someone privileged, the box is nothing special as it didn’t reveal many basic details about the upcoming device.The box suggests there is a twin rear camera made in collaboration with Leica at its rear.The flip side of the box ought to contain few other specs of the device, but that is unfortunately not covered here.Just to refresh your memory, the Huawei Mate 10, mate 10 pro and mate 10 light have all been rumoured to come with display with very slender bezels, some latest leaked images showing the devices with tiny bezels to either side of the screen, but still, significant ones above and below it somehow back up that rumor.

Chief executive James Wildman has led a commercial overhaul at Hearst Magazines that has brought an end to its siloed, title-led approach in favour of two content divisions and four agency sales 'hubs' that have already delivered a "much deeper" relationship with advertisers.The UK publisher owns 22 titles and formerly operated in a brand-by-brand structure, with individual client teams on each title.In other words, if an advertiser wanted to buy across the Hearst portfolio it would have to negotiate with 22 different sales teams.Wildman admitted that clunky structure meant Hearst "wasn't easy to navigate" and ultimately made the business "less efficient" for its customers.Since succeeding Anna Jones as chief executive in April, Wildman has put in place a strategy to make it easier for clients to navigate Hearst and remove silos preventing it from pushing package sells.The business has restructured around two content divisions, overseen by two chief brand officers, and four agency sales 'hubs' to manage its relationship with the industry's major media agencies.

Amazon and Microsoft on Thursday rolled out open-source software called Gluon in the stated hope of simplifying the implementation of machine learning.Gluon provides an interface, in the form of an API, for building neural networks, something that's not all that easy to do for those not steeped in the art.The software, available under the Apache 2.0 license, allows developers to construct machine learning models with the help of modular components.Supporting both traditional imperative programming and symbolic programming – where computational results are represented in a graph – Gluon is essentially an abstraction layer designed to work with deep-learning frameworks Apache MXNet and, soon, Microsoft's Cognitive Toolkit."Developers who are new to machine learning will find this interface more familiar to traditional code, since machine learning models can be defined and manipulated just like any other data structure," said Matt Wood, general manager of AI and deep learning services at AWS, in a blog post today."More seasoned data scientists and researchers will value the ability to build prototypes quickly and utilize dynamic neural network graphs for entirely new model architectures, all without sacrificing training speed."

Update, October 13: Evan Blass followed up on his report from September 29 with an image of what’s alleged to be the Galaxy S8 Active for T-Mobile.Looking at the image, there’s no notable difference between T-Mobile’s and AT’s versions of the device.Original post, September 29: The Samsung Galaxy S Active series has always been exclusive to AT in the US.According to a report from Venture Beat, this could soon change, as the Galaxy S8 Active is expected make its way to T-Mobile as well.Evan Blass over at VentureBeat got his hands on marketing materials revealing that T-Mobile’s variant of the S8 Active will carry the model number SM-G892T.This isn’t surprising based on the fact that AT version of the device, which is already available and retails for $850, has the same model number but with an “A” at the end — SM-G892A.

If you’ve noticed that not every text message sent to you on your Samsung Galaxy S8 is getting through, you’re not alone.Numerous other users are reporting the same issue.In threads on Reddit, users across Verizon, AT, T-Mobile, and Sprint are all reporting that some messages people have sent to them aren’t being received, or that there’s a delay in getting them.This seems to happen regardless of which SMS app is used.Some users report that services that push message alerts to your computer momentarily show the messages, so they are coming through, but for some reason aren’t being displayed on Galaxy S8 handsets.Anecdotally some users are saying that if they disable ‘Advanced Messaging’ in Samsung’s own SMS app the problem is solved, but others are still reporting missing texts.

If you want something a little bit special for taking your camera on your travels, The Bowery messenger bag won't disappoint.Most people will buy a camera bag to stash a whole heap of gear in, and will want that gear to be well protected, which means bags can often be large, cumbersome affairs that aren't much fun to lug around for long periods.Not so ONA Bags' The Bowery.This is a compact messenger bag that's aimed at those who want to travel light and carry only essential kit – perfect for wondering round the city or a short break.The design of The Bowery doesn't shout 'camera bag', but the stylish retro design certainly looks the part.It's beautifully crafted from a premium water-resistant waxed canvas (more costly nylon and leather versions are also available), and finished off with a leather trim and a tuck-clasp closure on the front.

The NeverSettle smartphone maker has found a new way to irk users and alienate potential customers.OnePlus, the Chinese company that made a name for itself with its budget “flagship killers,” had to deal with various controversies this year, most of them related to the OnePlus 5 launch.A new report shows that OnePlus has been collecting a treasure trove of information about its customers, and it looks awful.There’s no good reason for the company to obtain this much data, no matter what OnePlus will tell us.It was developer Christopher Moore who first noticed the unusual network activity of its OnePlus handset.Apparently, the phone was sending a lot of data to a OnePlus-owned domain, open.oneplus.net.

A desert doesn’t sound like the most promising place to plant a tree.Yet, since 1978, China has planted at least 66 billion of them across its arid northern territories, hoping to transform its sandy steppes and yellow dunes into a Great Green Wall.Ian Teh documented this epic undertaking while traveling through northern China last year.His expansive photographs show workers tending saplings, filling irrigation tanks, and blasting young trees with water.“Planting trees sounds great on paper, but you can feel skeptical,” Teh says.“But in person, it was impressive.”

In 2012, Facebook purchased Instagram, then a promising photo-sharing app, for a cool $1 billion dollars.While this time could be presumably spent doing something more productive, the app certainly does have its merits.Unless you’re sadly part of the Soylent movement, most of us can appreciate a good nom.From Aziz Ansari‘s tour de tastes and Lorde’s purported secret onion ring review account, to the delightfully straightforward Hot Girls Eating Pizza, there are plenty of options to choose from.While Tasting Table may not be the choicest option for foodies with dietary restrictions, the red-blooded omnivorous among us will drool over the peanut-doused African chicken, grilled cheese donuts, and eggs Benedict hosed in hollandaise.Go ahead and follow and watch Food Baby take a bite out of the Big Apple one nom at a time.

In honor of AIM, one of the oldest messaging platforms that is shutting down after 20 years of service, it's reminded me of other platforms that have gone away but were very popular at its peak: ICQ, MSN Messenger, mIRC, among others.Messaging and social apps are more popular than ever, seeing tremendous growth and evolution in the last half decade.With dominant platforms -- depending on where you live and the purpose of communication -- that could be WhatsApp, Skype, Viber, Instagram, Line, Snapchat, Facebook (or their own Messenger), Slack, and the list goes on.In this weekend's open forum, tell us what chat platform you remember being your first widely used platform and what do you use today for messaging and keeping in touch with friends and what else do you use (if any) for work related communication?
