the Castle, which was founded in Malmö in 2015, has lived here since the since the fall of 2016.He has always hated to talk on the phone and also felt that it was hard to speak English in situations where he needed to deliver something of value.But he had to overcome it and take all the sales calls, but so far we have not Castle any employee of the seller.the Castle's original view, that the product would be sold as a självbetjäningsprodukt via its website, the founders of the moment had to leave, even if the vision is left.Despite the fact that the solution itself is automated requires the sales process to both educate the industry and have personal contact with customers.“They will not draw a card and pay 2 000 dollars, without knowing who is behind,” says Sebastian Wallin, who is technical director at the Castle.

When you're sending a little email do you worry that some representative of Big Brother is going to try to read it?It specifically examined the Muslim American experience by talking to 1,001 Muslim Americans aged 18 and over between Jan. 23 and May 2 this year.They also say that media coverage of Islam is unfair.Yet one statistic seems more surprising.That leaves 41 percent with a remarkably trusting attitude towards authority.A fulsome 70 percent of Americans believe the government is monitoring their emails and calls.

Apple has been ordered to pay the University of Wisconsin-Madison's patent licensing arm a sum of $506m (£387.49m).The company was sued for making use of a 'predictor circuit' developed by the Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation (WARF).The verdict was handed by US District Judge William Conley in Madison.He added $272m to the $234m jury verdict that WARF won in October 2015 against the iPhone maker.The company allegedly continued to infringe upon the patent until it expired in December 2016 without paying what they owed WARF due to which the amount payable was increased.However, Apple would be contesting the verdict, Reuters reports.

Apple has agreed to build three new manufacturing plants in the US, according to an interview between President Trump and the Wall Street Journal.In the interview, Trump told reporters that Apple agreed to build “three big plants, beautiful plants.” He gave no indication of when or where the plants would be built, or what they would manufacture.The WSJ reported that during the interview, Trump said “I spoke to [Mr. Cook], he’s promised me three big plants—big, big, big.I said you know, Tim, unless you start building your plants in this country, I won’t consider my administration an economic success.He called me, and he said they are going forward.”It’s unclear if Apple is actually planning on setting up plants itself, or if this refers to Foxconn, Apple’s longterm manufacturing partner.

The proposition that fabulous people and lifestyle porn are viable marketing tools for ordinary brands can be a tough one for some.Organic reach may not be “dead” as it is often claimed, but it has been greatly limited.Facebook’s algorithm, for example, has been particularly brutal: one Ogilvy report put the network’s organic reach as low as 2% for companies with 500k + fans (6% for companies with less than 500k).Crucially, 20% of respondents said an influencer tweet inspired them to share a product – and nearly 40% said they made a purchase based on a Tweet from an influencer.On average, marketers earn $6.85 in media value for every dollar invested in an influencer marketing program.Retail and apparel brands see even greater returns of $10.48, while the CPG food sector tops the list at $11.33 ROI per dollar invested.

Companies that want to optimise their business or save costs will hardly be able to dispense with artificial intelligence.A computer, much like a human, saves knowledge gleaned from experiences and can then independently derive solutions — based on algorithms — to new and unknown problems.To do this, a computer program analyses samples and, using self-learning algorithms, tries to recognise certain patterns and regularities in the data.AI systems are, without a doubt, extremely usefulThe world is becoming ever more complex, meaning that a well-thought-out and wise use of our human resources is required.The quest for an artificial copy of man and the issues associated with this are not entirely new.

Currently large enterprises require large accounting teams to do what’s known as cash matching and credit collection.This is very manual stuff.Some of the ERP vendors (most notably SAP) have their own modules to do this, but in this world the big players are firms like Hanse Orga which is focused on Germany and the SAP ecosystem, and US players HighRadius and Billtrust.However, much of this work could be done with machine learning.So, look out accountants, because there’s a new kid on the block out to get you.Rimilia claims to improve the quality and speed of cash matching and credit collection while automating almost the whole process.

Remember that nice Hawaiian shirt or that jacket that was almost a good fit?Chances are you didn’t set out to buy these delightful items or any of the others that are quickly consigned to the back of the wardrobe or the charity shop pile.Somehow you became distracted during the retail experience and parted with your hard-earned in return for items that very soon you’ll barely be able to look at.That kind of shopper regret is a phenomenon that clients often also experience when they go shopping for new agencies.Too many clients run a pitch process only to end up with an agency that fits badly or who don’t live up to their price tag.The stakes are just a bit higher of course than when buying a shirt.

After an acclaimed first season, the next few episodes of Preacher look poised to focus on some of the most memorable villains from the comic.Adaptations of comic books have done big business for the movie industry for many years but as of late, we have seen comics serve as the basis for an increasing amount of incredibly popular television series.AMC arguably started this trend with its adaptation of The Walking Dead, but its most recent project in this vein is Preacher, which debuted last year — and over the weekend, the network unveiled a new trailer for its second season at Comic-Con International.Preacher is based on the critically acclaimed series by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon, which originally ran between 1995 and 2000.The second season of the television adaptation began airing on AMC in June and this new clip gives fans a glimpse of what to expect from its remaining episodes.The first season of Preacher was largely focused on protagonist Jesse Custer discovering the powers bestowed upon him by the entity known as Genesis and teaming up with his companions Tulip and Cassidy.

Plausibly Redmond-related domains were used to phishBit-by-bit, Microsoft is hitting back at an international domain-squatting/drive-by-hacking operation by taking over the domains involved.An unsealed order from US District of Eastern Virginia judge Bruce Gerald Lee shows that at the end of June, Redmond gained control of more than 60 domain names registered with the Public Internet Registry, Afilias USA, and VeriSign.The basis of the lawsuit is that scum and scammers were using domains with Microsoft-like names, presumably so phishing emails from “ms-update.info” would look legit.Rather than wait for law enforcement, Redmond used a trademark and copyright complaint to launch the action.The John Doe lawsuit doesn't say who Microsoft believes is behind the domains, although the Daily Beast believes they're part of the Russian-backed “Fancy Bear” group.

Lenovo might not be the biggest name in the mobile scene, smartphones or tablets, but you can’t say it isn’t willing to make some ambitious leaps.From the first commercial AR Tango phone to the Yoga Book tablet and, indirectly, to the modular Moto Z, it has been willing to play around with trends and hype, whether or not it actually continues to produce and support those products.For now, we can at least appreciate how Lenovo is this close to bringing the foldable device dream to life, showing off a working prototype at the Lenovo Tech World and making our mouths drool.It’s not yet the realization of the foldable mobile device as we have seen in many concept videos.The device doesn’t fold inward, with the display facing in.That has pretty much been an expected compromise given how we still haven’t reached the stage where displays can be folded flat.

Quite obviously, the cast of what may be TV’s most spoiler-protected show ever wasn’t going to march out onto Comic-Con’s Hall H stage and start spilling secrets, especially in the absence of David Lynch.In fact, they couldn’t even if they wanted to—aside from perhaps MacLachlan, the actors are only allowed to read the pages of the script which contains dialogue for their characters.In the panel hosted by Damon Lindelof (The Leftovers, Lost)—who credited his entire career to Twin Peaks, a show which affirmed to his teenage self that he wasn’t the only weirdo in the world—original series stars Kyle MacLachlan (Agent Dale Cooper), Everett McGill (“Big Ed” Hurley), James Marshall (James Hurley), Dana Ashbrook (Bobby Briggs), and Kimmy Robertson (Lucy Brennan) were joined by newcomers Naomi Watts (Janey-E Jones), Tim Roth (Hutch), Matthew Lillard (Bill Hastings), and Don Murray (Bushnell Mullins).MacLachlan got the ball rolling with Dougie’s rallying cry from his slot-machine winning spree in episodes three and four: “Helllooooooo!” But the ball didn’t roll too far; there were no big reveals or teasers or anything to hint at what’s to come in the second half of the season.Veteran actor Murray called it “one of the happiest sets I’ve ever worked on,” adding that Lynch “really shows a great appreciation for other people’s work.You go home after a day’s work with David and you feel good about yourself and about the world, having had that experience.”

For entrepreneurs and startup founders looking for new ways to grow their businesses, there’s no shortage of information on the “whats” and “hows” of digital marketing.For the past decade, I’ve done my best to provide even more information in those categories, helping entrepreneurs with everything from the basics of building an online presence to advanced tactics in categories like SEO.Last year, I attempted to answer these questions with an original survey I called “What Works in Online Marketing,” and I walked away with some interesting revelations about the state of the industry.Now that it’s a year old, I figured it was time to redistribute the survey and find out exactly where we stand today.It comprised a number of questions regarding the use and effectiveness of multiple different online marketing strategies, including content marketing, SEO, social media marketing and link building.We distributed the survey to 376 people, most of whom are professional marketers or business owners, and collected the results for analysis.

Scientists have confirmed what all dog owners have long known to be true, that our furry friends are in fact more like family than pets.This is as a new study has found people and doggos actually have a similar genetic makeup (they do say canines look like their owners), in a chromosome that dictates our social behaviour and interaction.No wonder we prefer hanging out with them than other humans.The team at Princeton University were looking at what differentiates a domesticated dog’s ability to communicate and socialise with humans, compared to wolves.Comparing data from 18 domesticated dogs and 10 capture human-socialised wolves, they found that there is a region of chromosome present in dog DNA that is not present in their wild cousins.This section contained unique genetic insertions that were strongly associated with a dog’s desire to seek out humans for physical contact, assistance and information, which would explain why they behave differently to non-domesticated dogs.
