p Recently, Wendy’s received a heap of media coverage for its controversial social media approach of offering providing responses to complaints and criticisms.It’s pretty funny, for sure, and there are various examples of Wendy’s executing this approach perfectly - but at the same time, the strategy presents significant risk.While it has worked to generate coverage and exposure for Wendy’s, it may not be the best approach for your business – and a new study from Sprout Social has found that such responses are actually not appreciated by customers at all, even if they generate attention.By comparison, and as you can see in the above chart, what consumers want more than anything else is honestly from business on social, as well as a welcoming, helpful approach aimed at providing them with effective customer service.The numbers also show that consumers are less interested in brands trying to tap into trends or bringing political opinion to their brand presence.Of course, individual results will vary, and you should always be driven by what your unique community responds to, but Sprout’s findings show that it’s not always necessary to jump onto the latest trend.

p Lots of people really want to go to Mars.The thing about a Martian colony is that people would have to be able to reproduce there in order to keep it going — and luckily for those hopeful pioneers, a team of Japanese scientists have achieved an important first step toward making their pipe dream a reality.That team has successfully bred mice from sperm kept on board the International Space Station (ISS) for nine months, from August 2013 to May 2014.The freeze-dried sperm were kept in some pretty extreme conditions, receiving roughly 100 times the radiation we do on Earth.While other studies have analyzed the effects of microgravity on bird, sea urchin, and even fish reproduction, information on how mammalian reproduction, including human fertility, might respond to spaceflight is scarce.“If humans ever start to live permanently in space, assisted reproductive technology using preserved spermatozoa will be important for producing offspring,” the researchers write in their paper published today in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

Microsoft states that Windows 10 is now installed on more than 500 million devices, halfway towards the goal of 1 billion by 2018 that it set itself at Build 2015.In July 2016 the company acknowledged that its target was not realistic, telling the press that "due to the focusing of our phone hardware business, it will take longer than FY18 for us to reach our goal".Build saw the announcement of a new Windows 10 release, the Fall Creators Update, along with key new features.The "Creators" concept is rather tangential both to the new features and to Windows users in general.Unfortunately, hands-on demos of the new controllers were not available at Build but we may see more at the E3 event next month, where Xbox chief Phil Spencer has promised "new experiences with different IP".The failure (so far) of the Windows Store sums up everything that has gone wrong for Microsoft since the Windows 8 upheaval.

p The system showcases connected tech and digital transformation put to proper usePursuing its desire to inject artificial intelligence (AI) into digital transformation, Fujitsu has revealed how its latest AI engine can be used to detect potholes in roads before they appear.For anyone used to driving on British A and B roads, that will be music to their ears, but Fujitsu’s AI tech was put to use by Japanese company Kawasaki Geological Engineering to develop a system that can detect subsurface cavity survey technology.Through the use of Fujitsu’s deep learning platform, the complex sounding Cloud Service K5 Zinrai Platform Service Zinrai Deep Learning, Kawasaki Geological Engineering uses the AI tech to process and analyse large volumes of radar imagery collected from underground probes to search for cavities before they form surface potholes.According to Fujitsu, this system will bypass the need for expert technicians to take up time making visual evaluations of underground cavities.Furthermore, the system can be connected to Fujitsu’s Traffic & Road Data Service to display problematic spots on a map so that the road authorities can fix the problem before it becomes a fully blown pothole.

Silmäaseman listautumista Talouselämä uumoili pari viikkoa sitten.Ensimmäinen Interan pörssiin viemä yhtiö oli korjausrakentaja Consti, joka aloitti Helsingin päälistalla joulukuussa 2015.Intera jäi listauksen jälkeen Constin osakkaaksi 12 prosentin osuudella, jonka se myi pois viime kesänä.Jos Intera jatkaa linjaa, että listattavan yrityksen tuotteen pitää olla tuttu ja ymmärrettävä kadunmiehelle, seuraavat pörssiehdokkaat salkussa ovat lasten sisäliikuntapuistoja pyörittävä HopLop ja ravintolaketju Royal Ravintolat.HopLop tosin on noin kymmenen miljoonan euron liikevaihdollaan liian pieni, mutta kasvunäkymiä alalla on.Päälistalta löytyy sitä pienempiä yhtiöitä, esimerkiksi maanantaina hurjan kurssinousun kokenut tietoturvayhtiö SSH, jonka liikevaihto oli viime vuonna 15 miljoonaa euroa.

p On the opening morning of the TM Forum Live 2017 event a succession of operators and vendors lined up to give their take on how virtualization is progressing.The ultimate conclusion was ‘it’s complicated’, as illustrated by prevalence of the all too familiar ‘loads of boxes inside bigger boxes’ software slides.Everyone agrees on what a great idea telecoms virtualization is, and the need for telcos to at least get closer to so-called OTTs in terms of speed, agility, etc, but how to get there seems more convoluted than ever.A lot of this discussion occurred at the NFV & SDN keynote thread, where the difficulty of marrying top-down strategic objectives with bottom-up facts on the ground was lamented.Right now we still seem to be stuck in a relatively unstructured trial-and-error model, which is very time consuming and offers no guarantee of achieving the desired outcome.One speaker reflected on his presentation being not too dissimilar to one he made at this even seven years ago.

p Microsoft so far hasn’t been able to compete with Google and Apple’s mobile platforms, with Windows products occupying about 0.3% of the smartphone OS market share at the end of 2016.Now, Microsoft appears to be eyeing a more “if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em” approach: PC’s don’t just love Windows 10 Mobile devices, PCs love all your devices, apparently.At Microsoft’s recent Build 2017 conference in Seattle, the company discussed plans to help improve the user experience for those with Windows machines and other devices.This lofty goal will be achieved mainly through two new features: Timeline and Pick Up Where I Left Off.Timeline will track your progress in a particular task on Windows 10, be it writing a document or sending an email, and then Pick Up Where I Left Off will let you resume your task at the same point on a different device.So, if you leave your home halfway through reading a news story on your PC, for example, you’ll be able to access it again on your phone to continue reading on the move — providing you have the Cortana app installed.
