The last few years have been difficult for the production team behind the Star Trek fan film Axanar, with their ambitious project getting them sued by CBS and Paramount, owners of the franchise, followed by news that the copyright lawsuit was being dropped, only for it to proceed anyway.But it appears the bumpy road has finally come to an end, as Axanar Productions has revealed it s finally reached a settlement with the film and TV studios, preventing the need for a jury trial.While the exact terms of the settlement haven t been revealed, the agreement will allow the fan film to be completed and released, as long as a number of substantial changes are made.Along with this, the production team has acknowledged that both the incomplete film and its previously released prequel, Prelude to Axanar, were not approved by Paramount or CBS, and that both works crossed boundaries acceptable to CBS and Paramount relating to copyright law.This case has also prompted Paramount to release new guidelines for fan films, which Axanar Productions must follow in any future projects.Among these rules are the requirements that fan films be no longer than 30 minutes, and must be released in two parts, they cannot use the name Star Trek in the title, and they can raise no more than $50,000 in crowdfunding.

Of all the products I ve used from Chinese OEMs, those from Meizu always struck me as the most polished.In the center is a USB-C port for charging and data transfers, flanked by iPhone-like exposed pentalobe screws.There is no microSD card slot included on this device, although you ll get 64 GB of internal storage as standard with the option to upgrade to 128 GB.All of the benefits of an AMOLED display are on show here, including deep black levels and fantastic viewing angles.Meizu lists a contrast ratio of 10,000:1, although considering the Pro 6 Plus display switches off its pixels to display blacks, the actual contrast ratio is closer to infinite.In the benchmarks that follow, I ve included the results for the Pro 6 Plus in both its balance and performance modes.

It was understandably difficult for Note 7 owners to abandon their device.After all, it was a well-received handset, save for…that one thing…Still, as Samsung has routinely reported, return rates have been high for the device.At last count, the electronics giant touted a 96-percent return rate on the phone tied to a bit of news about the FAA no longer having to announce its ban on flights .But, as anyone with a basic understanding of math will happily tell you, 96 is not 100.So, what s to be done about all of those Note fans unable to give up the dream?

It appears cyber thieves are attempting to trick Gmail users into clicking on fake links which then lets these online criminals steal personal information.The shocking scam was detected by security firm Wordfence, which outlined just how it works in a blog post on its website.According to Wordfence victims of the scam are targeted via an email to their Gmail account, which may include an attachment or image, and might even come from a contact or company they recognise.When the link is clicked, it opens a new tab with a page which closely resembles the real Gmail login page, and asks the user to sign in once more.However the page is actually a portal for hackers to steal your email address and password information - giving them full access to your account.The hackers can then spread their virus even further by sending emails to all of your contacts.

A friend who owns a local hi-fi store once brought me into the store s listening room to hear some of their best audio equipment: A pair of Wilson Sasha loudspeakers $26,900 for the pair driven by a Ayre KX-R Twenty preamp $27,500 and a pair of Ayre MX-R Twenty reference mono block amplifiers $29,500 for the pair , anchored by a JL Gotham subwoofer $15,000 .While the system s overall audio performance was stunning, I ll never forget the sensation I got from the JL Gotham sub: It produced the tightest, deepest, cleanest, and most authoritative bass I d ever heard.My search is finally over: SVS new SB16-Ultra subwoofer delivers what I ve been looking for at a price of $2000.Balanced inputs are are particularly good at rejecting noise over long wire runs.With the included inputs and outputs you can daisy-chain multiple SB16-Ultra subs together.This is especially handy if your AVR or pre-processor has limited subwoofer outputs, or if you want to manage your wire runs a certain way.

Kansainvälinen valuuttarahasto IMF suhtautuu varovaisesti Yhdysvaltain seuraavan presidentin Donald Trumpin taloustoimenpiteisiin.IMF odottaa, että Trumpin lupaamilla toimenpiteillä Yhdysvaltain talous saa vain kohtalaisen työnnön, kertoo uutistoimisto Bloomberg.Trump on luvannut leikata veroja ja tehostaa kulutusta infrastruktuuria kohtaan, mutta hän on samalla uhannut asettaa tulleja kauppakumppaneille kuten Kiinalle ja Meksikolle.Tällaiset rankaisevat toimenpiteet voivat nostattaa närää ja aiheuttaa kostotoimenpiteitä.Trumpin käytännön toimet tulevat selkiytymään enemmän sen jälkeen kun hän on astunut virallisesti virkaansa tammikuun 20. päivä.IMF:n pääekonomi Maurice Obstfeld sanoo, että Yhdysvaltojen talouspolitiikkaa koskeva suuri epävarmuus asettaa tavallista laajemman valikoiman riskikertoimia .

Sedan de nya modellerna av Macbook Pro lanserades i höstas har Apple fått en hel del kritik för att batteritiden inte lever upp till de utlovade 10 timmarna.För att uppnå den utlovade batteritiden kommer Apple att genomföra ett antal mindre justeringar i Mac OS Sierra 10.12.3 som för tillfället betatestas för fullt.En av nyheterna är att det ska bli enklare att minska ljusstyrkan på skärmen.Tack vare ett nytt alternativ i menyraden räcker det med ett klick för att ändra ljusstyrkan till 75 procent, alltså samma procentsats som Apple använder sig av i sina tester.Den skarpa versionen av Mac OS Sierra 10.12.3 väntas skickas ut till allmänheten inom kort.

Efter två glada år där siffrorna pekat spikrakt uppåt gick kinesiska Xiaomi in i väggen under fjolåret.Både under 2014 och 2015 låg bolaget bland världens fem största tillverkare av smarta telefoner.Men under 2016 var det annat ljud i skällan.Då var bolaget plötsligt bara fjärde störst av de kinesiska tillverkarna, då trion Huawei, Oppo och Vivo samtliga var större.En av anledningarna till tillbakagången är att bolaget har haft svårt att lyckas utanför Asien, men i år räknar man med att lansera sina lågpristelefoner i USA.Hur det går återstår att se.

The two leading app stores both experienced a tilt towards Asia in 2016, according to an annual study.They suggest China still lagged behind the US and Japan last year.Google and Apple both take a cut of software sales and in-app fees from third-parties that publish on their respective platforms.Their differing successes are explained by the fact that Google Play does not operate in China, while iPhones have a much smaller share of the Indian market than they do in most other countries.San Francisco-based App Annie's data is widely used by app publishers and others involved in the digital industries, but it acknowledges that its figures are estimates.The popularity of Google Play downloads in India is linked to the fact that the nation became the world's second largest smartphone market in 2016, according to the United Nations, based on the number of people with mobile data subscriptions.

A good way to tell whether a "cybersecurity expert" truly knows something about cybersecurity is to take a look at their website, assuming they have one.Does the site look like something coded for a middle school project?If so, you might want to be skeptical.If, for example, the newly appointed informal cybersecurity advisor to President-elect Donald Trump has a company website that looks like it was built after a handful of coding classes, it makes sense to doubt his expertise.Folks on the internet immediately denounced the cybersecurity chops of former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who was announced as an informal cyber advisor to Trump on Thursday.Giuliani runs a management firm called Giuliani Partners that houses a company branch allegedly dealing with security services.

What is the Astro A40 TR Gaming Headset?Available in two base colours black and white , the A40 TR is a large, stereo wired headset designed for use with PlayStation consoles and PCs, although it's also compatible with newer 3.5mm jack-equipped Xbox One controllers.While I personally like the curves and two-tone colour scheme, it won't be to everyone's taste.Build quality throughout is strong, with a solid feel to the headband and earcups.The A40 TR can be customised, too, with Mod Kits sold separately that allow the user to swap out the headband and earcups – padding and covers – to better suit their style.The 3.5mm port on the underside allows the user to swap out the cable should they so desire, with the supplied 2m cable providing ample length.
