Mobile giant Telefonica's Spanish PayTV group Movistar+ has announced a gamble on an unprecedented volume of exclusive Spanish-language shows as a means of attracting new subscribers, something it has been doing with increasing success of late.The company was formed as a result of a 2015 merger and rebrand of Movistar TV and Canal+, and now boasts just shy of four million subscribers, masterminding an uprise in PayTV subscription with the launch of a new Velvet Collection series, a sequel to Velvet.Partly to thank for this boost was also the release of a lower price option called Fusion + Ocio.On the original content front, Movistar+ is perhaps only comparable in scale to Sky UK's efforts in Europe.Speaking to The Drum from Mipcom, Movistar+’s head of content, Domingo Corral shared how the company is embarking on an unprecedented original content drive that will touch down in Spanish-speaking nations such as Spain, Argentina, Chile, Uruguay, Peru, Ecuador, Venezuela, Colombia, Mexico, Guatemala, Panamá, El Salvador, Costa Rica and Nicaragua.As a quadplay provider, Telefónica's Movistar+ has multiple rivals but one force looking to disrupt its home market is Netflix.

Smartphone makers are looking for new features to try out and ZTE has gone all-in on its new flagship model unveiled today at a New York City event.ZTE has chosen to power the Axon M with a Snapdragon 821 processor running Android Nougat 7.1 paired with 4GB of RAM.Packing two displays and last year's high-end processor, battery life is going to be a major concern.ZTE claims the handset should be good for one day of use although it is unclear if that rating was tested with both displays active.Having only 1080p screens instead of higher pixel count 18:9 displays could result in reasonable battery life but it still will not be all that impressive.This is a somewhat practical idea but how much anybody intends to use this capability is unknown.

While the 13.5-inch for $1,499 succeeds the original Surface Book laptop released in November 2015, there’s also a 13.5-inch starting at $1,999 that succeeds the Surface Book i7 released in November 2016.As you might expect, this model is more powerful (i7 CPU and GPU in the base), but it is thicker (with fans) and less portable.In a small meeting with the press, Panos Panay, head of engineering for all of Microsoft’s devices, declared that the Surface Book 2 “transforms the boundary between the desktop and the laptop.” In terms of graphics, Panay shared that the 13-inch is “three times more powerful” than the original Surface Book and that the 15-inch is “five times more powerful.”The original Surface Book could push 1 million teraflops of GPU power, while the Surface Book i7 went up to 1.9 million teraflops.Panay joked he was frustrated the team wouldn’t let him hit the arbitrary 7 million.Panay also noted the Surface Book 2 has the “thinnest LCD stack ever created.”

Failure to make necessary upgrades to software code can have dire consequences, such as the major data breach at Equifax.A recent study finds that auto-fix tools are effective ways to get programmers to make the relevant upgrades - if programmers opt to use them."Most software programs rely, in part, on code in external 'libraries' to perform some of their functions," says Chris Parnin, an assistant professor of computer science at North Carolina State University and senior author of a paper on the work.And while the external library was patched, Equifax never got around to updating its internal code.So months after the problem was identified, Equifax was still vulnerable and got hacked.Could they help prevent another Equifax?"

Vi rapporterade nyligen att Tesla nu försenar presentationen av sin kommande lastbil.Men det har inte hindrat den vakna Youtube-användaren Jim Beaubien från att filma det som påstås, och mycket väl kan vara, prototypen för Teslas eldrivna lastbil ute på öppen gata i Usa.Lastbilen i klippet ser inte superspejsad ut mer än att den har en iögonfallande stor låda bakom förarpartiet.Baserat på videoklippet är den också väldigt tyst vilket talar för att den faktiskt är eldriven.Hur pass den här varianten är lik den siluetterade bilden som Tesla visat upp tidigare på lastbilen är däremot diskuterbart.Vi lär veta mer den 16 november då Tesla sagt att de officiellt kommer visa upp sin lastbil.

Sorry, I meant to say “Give me a minute while I sort my things out” but I’ve been writing a lot about disruptive technology this week.I must have zoned while dogfooding my hume-code for bugs… er, I mean “got carried away while proofreading my articles for typos”.I appreciate that I might be using some of these IT development expressions incorrectly, and some probably didn’t exist at all until I made them up just now, but heck, can I help it if I’m disruptive?If it wasn’t, tech-savvy people around the world would be free to invent home-grown buzz terms in their own native languages rather than being forced to stoop so low as to sprinkle their poetic ancient vocabularies with every tagnut of technobollox that English farts out.In that case, good for you, Americans!I love Americans and the way they mangle English as if they spontaneously decided to pull the Babelfish from their ears and chew them like gum instead.

Tropical Storm Ophelia developed on Oct. 9 around 5 a.m. EDT as the seventeenth, tropical depression of the Atlantic Ocean hurricane season.It formed in the Central Atlantic Ocean about 875 miles (1,405 km) west-southwest of the Azores islands.NASA's Terra satellite provided forecasters with a visible image of the storm as it strengthened into a tropical storm.NASA's Terra satellite passed over Ophelia when it was still a depression at 9:35 a.m. EDT (1335 UTC).But the image provided by the MODIS instrument, or Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer that flies aboard Terra, showed that there were strong thunderstorms around the center of circulation and in a thick band east of the center.National Hurricane Center (NHC) forecaster Stewart noted on Oct. 10 at 1:44 p.m. EDT "Convective banding has continued to become better defined since the previous advisory, and an eye-like feature has developed in the center of the convection.

But the new administration is getting rid of many of Obama’s policies, ones that are not quite as far-reaching as, say, the Affordable Care Act but still could impact millions of people.The latest example came Friday, when Trump’s team announced broader exemptions for an ACA mandate requiring employers to offer birth control free of deductibles or co-pays to their employees.1As Vox’s , the administration technically released two new regulations: one that broadens the religious exemption and one that creates a new moral exemption.Health care experts say the new regulation will essentially allow any organization to argue that offering contraceptives to its employees violates its religious or moral views (even if it is not a church, religious school or another clearly religious entity), and thus be freed from the mandate.But after a political fight that included even some liberal faith leaders opposing the initial policy, the administration carved out a narrow exemption from the contraception mandate for some religious organizations.It’s hard to know exactly how many employees Trump’s new provision will affect, because we don’t know how many employers will seek this exemption.

We’ve got new phones, speakers, earbuds, cameras, and yep, you guessed it, a new laptop.The Google Pixelbook is a 12.3-inch foldable laptop running ChromeOS.It takes the glass visor design from the Pixel phones and applies it to a laptop, with a glass panel on lid to aid in Wi-Fi reception and silicon panels flanking the touchpad.It’s very stylish and looks every bit as expensive as its price tag.If you want to get crazy with upgrades you can, from the Pixelbook Pen for $99, which really should’ve just been included, to various spec bumps that can inflate the final price of the laptop to $1649 (not including the optional Pixelbook Pen).It works just like a standard Wacom stylus with no Bluetooth pairing required.

No compatible source was found for this media.A diligence report ordered by Uber has indicated that the ride-sharing company knew that Anthony Levandowski – the self-driving car expert who used to work for Waymo – had thousands of documents and trade secrets, including protected intellectual property developed at Google, with him before he was hired.Levandowski left Google to set up his own self-driving car start-up Otto, which was then acquired by Uber for $680m (£513m), according to a report by Wired.Now, it has been revealed that Uber might have already known that Levandowski stole documents from Google before he left Waymo, but went ahead with his recruitment.Waymo, Google's self-driving unit under Alphabet, has been locked in a legal battle with Uber over patent and technology infringement.The case began earlier this year when Waymo asked courts to stop Uber from using allegedly stolen self-driving technology.
