Some breaking new from the Leagoo side today, because they just revealed they are working on some pretty non-budget for a change.And looks like with their new KIICAA series of phones, specifically with the KIICAA S8 they can claim the world’s first title utilizing the upcoming Mediatek MT6763 chipset.From the only picture available it looks like the phone will be looking pretty much like the Samsung S8 and just like it it should be sporting the 18:9 aspect ratio.After all the name could be already a pretty strong hint towards the Samsung resemblance.From what we know so far the phone should be equipped with the aforementioned MT6763 chipset, 4GB/6GB RAM, 64GB/128GB ROM, 5.72-inch/5.99-inch with 1440×720 pixel resolution.And looks like there is a dual camera with fingeprint scanner on the back too.

I think you'll find it's not as simple as thatReg Reader Research One of the silliest concepts peddled by large industry analyst firms is "The CIO agenda".Listen to some of them and you would get the impression that everyone running an IT department woke up one morning and decided the priority would now be Web 2.0, Enterprise 2.0, grid computing, SOA, cloud, analytics, mobile, IoT, software development, DevOps, or one of the other "critical imperatives" that have been foisted on us over the years.Digital transformation is the latest such "do or die" idea to emerge and supposedly dominate the "agenda".When you get past all of the hype, spin and inevitable 'me too' industry marketing, there's usually (though not always) something of potential value underpinning the noise.But whatever it is will be interesting to different organisations in different ways at different times and for different reasons.

This week, German food watchdogs chased down Teutonic Tofutown brands to set up a landmark judgement.Legislators from the European Court of Justice ruled that for the purposes of marketing and advertising the term ‘milk’ must be reserved for animal based products only.Although there are exceptions, dairy names are protected under EU regulation 1308/2013 and the use of milk itself or for that matter, milky based or dairy terms such as cream, butter, cheese or yoghurt would also be protected.Interestingly, even terms like ‘milk’ used on packaging to explain the product in the description would also be a no-no or nein-nein?Alternatively, if Dave Davies (so good they named him twice…) has his way, post Brexit, Brit brands could be in the clear with nothing to cry over.Consider the early Brexit ramifications - what could be a huge commercial cost for brands and retailers could turn into an unexpected near miss as a result of our recent political chaos.

After playing Rare's Sea of Thieves at E3 2017, it's safe to add another entry to the list of causes of death for pirates: bloody useless crew members.Some scene setting: in the chaos of E3, one of the world's biggest video game conferences, the dense crowds make showcasing even single-player games tough enough.This is a game that exists in a shared persistent world and depends on crews of four players teaming up to do everything from exploring booty-filled island caves and surviving the perils within, to solving riddles and simply steering their ship.That's a formula for a great time when playing with mates, where you already have something of a rapport.What it doesn't lend itself well to though is being thrown together with random strangers – which is exactly what happened to WIRED.Those are all scenarios entirely possible in the game's dynamic oceanic world, which lends itself well to emergent storytelling and player-driven experiences.

If you thought it was safe to go back in the water, you might want to hold that thought; this is after a group of fishermen in the North Sea pulled a previously undocumented two-headed marine mammal from the deep.In a world first, a siamese harbour porpoise with two complete and well-developed heads joined to one body, was caught by a Dutch commercial fishing vessel on 30 May, about 28 kilometres west of Holland.Dutch trawler caught a siamese porpoise calf yesterday.Fishermen threw it back overboard in fear of prosecution, so no chance for research.— Daniel Moore (@dm_moore_) June 7, 2017Unfortunately the crew threw the specimen back in the water as they were worried it would be illegal to have the body on board.

So do not need it at all – as long as nothing breaks down, the computer loses no sting at all, it works exactly as it did when it was new.the New operating system, for example, has for a long time almost always had better computers.In theory, you can often continue to use a very old computer, even with the newer systems.Also, most newer programs will work with older computers, because neither the programs farther raises their requirements for each new version.Just as with, for example engines, it is possible to improve the speed and performance of an older computer by replacing parts or supplementing it with new.There is of course a limit where the cost to upgrade does not correspond to what it offers in improved performance and it is better to buy new, but it varies depending on what you want to achieve.

As one of the more popular shows on TV, Game of Thrones is certainly no stranger to controversy.Even though the show airs on HBO — a channel were ostensibly anything goes — there have been some vocal critics who have lambasted the show for the way it treats women and its depiction of violence that some argue is gratuitous and a tad over the top.Of course, Game of Thrones author George R.R.Martin has been quick to dismiss such criticisms, noting in the past that “drama comes out of conflict” and that “if you portray a utopia, then you probably wrote a pretty boring book.”All that said, there’s no denying that death is one of the reasons why GOT is so enthralling and compelling.After all, it takes a special skill to create a character so vile (read: King Joffrey) that viewers are actively hoping for his brutal demise.

Toimihenkilökeskusjärjestö STTK:n hallitus tehnyt päätöksiä järjestöön kuuluvien liittojen yhteisistä tavoitteista työelämän laadulle.Keskeisiksi tavoitteikseen STTK kertoo henkilöstön edustajien aseman parantamisen, palkkatasa-arvon sekä osaamisen, työhyvinvoinnin ja jaksamisen edistämisen.Tavoitteet on laadittu syksyllä alkavaa työmarkkinoiden sopimuskierrosta varten.STTK:n puheenjohtaja Antti Palolan mukaan palkkatasa-arvon edistäminen on liittokierroksella haasteellista, muttei mahdotonta."Tasa-arvoa voidaan edistää esimerkiksi erillisellä tasa-arvoerällä, joka voi ylittää niin sanotun yleisen linjan.Osa palkankorotuksista voidaan sopia myös paikallisesti, jolloin korotus kohdennetaan perusteettomien palkkaerojen poistamiseen yksittäisellä työpaikalla", Palola toteaa järjestön tiedotteessa.

By exploiting a collection of bugs in infotainmentsystemet MZD, which is available in several car models of the mark Mazda, a hacker can run malicious code directly in the car via a simple usb-stick.the Bugs have been fixed in mazda's latest firmware update (version 59.00.502) which was released last month, but among Mazdaägare have breaches been known since 2014 when it cirkluerat various modifications on the internetforumet Mazda3Revolution.One of the Mazdaägare who first discovered the bugs, and the risks they entail, is säkerhetsingenjören Jay Turla, which gathered information about bugs on Github.”I just want to see what attackvektorer that was available for my car.I also wanted to test my car for my own research,” he says to Bleeping Computer.Since the bugs made it possible for hackers/car owners to modify the car via external code, there is according to Jay Turla almost no limits to what could be done with the car, provided to the hacker sitting in the right knowledge and skills.

Microsoft's rapid-fire E3 2017 press conference ran through a ton of games in quick succession, but stopped to shine its spotlight on an extended gameplay demo of Rare's multiplayer, shared world pirate game Sea of Thieves.At the end of the new footage the game was given an early 2018 release window.The demo (embedded below) starts underwater, with a group of pirates pillaging a sunken ship for treasure before encountering some sharks.It's possible to take on the creatures but not advisable, so they quickly head back to the ship.Back on board they follow some clues, in the form of a riddle, to a new island.Ashore they meet some hostile skeleton locals who began firing on the player's ship.

The disaster that is Brexit could be mitigated by the election results.Bad news... er, Theresa May has promised very specifically that she still has authoritarian dreams of controlling the internet.In her first address outside Downing Street today following her disastrous night, she said this, in reference to what her new government (whether coalition or minority) will do:"It will work to keep our nation safe and secure, by delivering the change that I set out following the appalling attacks in Manchester and London.Cracking down on the ideology of Islamist extremism and all those who support it, and giving the police and the authorities they need to keep our country safe."In other words, she's referring to the comments she made following the London Bridge attack, when she said:

Paul Allen likes to go big.The entrepreneur and Microsoft co-founder owns a 414-foot (126-meter) superyacht and is now also responsible for bringing us the world's largest airplane.Workers towed the Stratolaunch out from its massive hangar at the Mojave Air and Space Port in California last week, giving us a good look at the monster machine.The Stratolaunch has a 385-foot (117-meter) wingspan, a tail height of 50 feet (15 meters) and a matching pair of fuselages that measure 238 feet (73 meters) in length.All that bulk requires a lot of wheels.The Stratolaunch has 28 of them.

Instead of the mere two tech IPOs we had this time last year, there have been at least 10, depending on what you count as a tech shop.The resurgence of IPOs and some strong ensuing performances has brought back the talk of companies “leaving money on the table” during their debut.Therefore, large IPO pops can be construed as mistakes.Goldilocks and the three IPO resultsLast week on Equity, IPO and M lawyer Rick Kline talked us through IPO pops and where his perspective lands.He brought up a recent discussion with other financial folks who argued that 35 percent was too high to underscore that point.)
