Mark Duffy has written the Copyranter blog for 12 years and is a freelancing copywriter with 25-plus years of experience.His hockey wrist shot is better than yours.The smarter shops don’t do much more than that because, really, what separates one agency from another?Because of insecurity (or because a marketing MBA got involved), they feel they need to try and explain what it is they do that is so transcendentally different from other ad agencies.And whoever typed this stuff deserves a Man Booker Prize for fiction.Global shop Gyro’s strange, kind of cryptic tagline is “What A Time To Be Alive.” And its CEO-CCO has such a perspicacious vision (right).
Slashdot started in 1997 as Chips and Dips by Rob "CmdrTaco" Malda.Between working as an ad programmer and going to college, he ran it off of a single server.In 1999, moderation broadened from 25 editors to a rotating pool of more than 400 users.This makes it really hard to objectively consider the future of the site."Slashdot launched Slashdot TV on March 28, 2012.Slashdot became a part of their subgroup, Open Source Development Network (OSDN), said Timothy "timothy" Lord.

Finding time to get enough sleep has been a struggle ever since we invented artificial light.While burning the midnight oil may be necessary once in a while, it’s of imperative importance to our health that we do find the time to get our heads down for a good amount of sleep as often as possible.If you’re looking for a free app that helps you to track your sleep, wake up at the right time, and gain an insight into how you sleep, then SleepBot should be your first port of call.Using a simple system of clocking in when you go to sleep, and clocking out when you wake up, SleepBot can keep a remarkably good log of your sleep times.This app can ask a lot of you, but if you’re willing to go deep into the intensive logging spree, you’re sure to learn a lot about how you sleep.Sleepo comes with 32 carefully selected sounds, sorted into four different categories: Rain, city, nature, and meditation sounds.

Putting fully autonomous cars onto the streets of a place like Manhattan suggests the technology is making real progress.Drivers in New York City may soon have to ask themselves the profound question: If the car in front is a self-driving one, is there any point in honking my horn?General Motors’ (GM) self-driving unit, Cruise Automation, could soon begin tests of its modified Chevy Bolts in a move that would see “fully autonomous” Level 4 vehicles tootling along the busy streets of Manhattan for the very first time.New York City Governor Andrew Cuomo announced on Tuesday that GM has applied for a permit with the aim of starting trials in early 2018.The governor described self-driving vehicles as an “emerging industry that has the potential to be the next great technological advance that moves our economy and moves us forward.”GM and Cruise are already laying the groundwork for the vehicle tests, mapping streets within a geofenced area in Manhattan.

You might want to sit down, because this could come as a surprise: Comcast is doing something bad.According to the American Cable Association, Comcast has been using its ownership of “must-have” programming, like NBC regional Sports channels, to quash the spread of so-called “skinny” cable bundles from other cable companies.In other words, Comcast is accused of abusing its position as a content owner to kill competition in the home cable market.That might sound like the kind of grossly anti-competitive behavior that regulators should be vigorously cracking down on, but if you still believe that, you’re probably new here.The American Cable Association, an organization representing 800 small cable companies nationwide, make the comments as a response to an FCC request for comments on the 19th “Annual Assessment of the Status of Competition in the Market for the Delivery of Video Programming.”According to the ACA, Comcast is forcing small cable companies to bundle NBC Sports into any cable package that reaches more than 15% of a customer’s user base.
Huawei has just announced a Porsche Design variant of its latest flagship, the Mate 10 Pro.Loaded up with an 18:9 screen and a 4,000mAh battery, the Mate 10 Pro is already an impressive smartphone, so what can the luxury Porsche Design branding add to the mix?As with the Mate 9 Porsche Design, Porsche’s Mate 10 Pro swaps out the default colour-scheme for a deep black version.In-hand, it feels identical to the standard Mate 10 Pro, looks sleeker and has a tendency to attract a few more fingerprints.A 6-inch 18:9 screen, curved glass back and fingerprint scanner all combine to produce a very handsome, rich-feeling smartphone.Loaded up with a vertical strip and the Porsche Design logo at the back, there’s no mistaking this thing for the vanilla version.
“We want students to use their brains and learn what careers could look like,” said Axel Reitzig, a program director at the district’s Innovation Center.And career preparation here isn’t just a buzzword but more like a guiding principle: When the end-of-day bell sounds, some children transition from students to employees of the district, and earn $10 an hour for working on a variety of projects for local technology companies.The project that has caused the biggest splash in the district came from the Innovation Center’s aquatic robotics team.“We were just four guys, we really didn’t know anything about it.” (Today the group has swelled to 13 members and includes girls.)“But classroom walls are becoming a lot more permeable,” she said, citing examples in which a group of students in Georgia earned a patent for work they completed in school and seven districts in Iowa teamed up to help students spend part of their school days working for local companies.“The desire to do this causes some really interesting conversations between schools and project partners,” Boss said.
Suunnitelmien mukaan kaikki palkkatiedot näkyvät järjestelmässä 2019 alusta ja Kelan ja muiden tahojen maksamat etuudet vuoden 2020 alusta lähtien, kertoo Tivi.Hankejohtaja Terhi Holmström Verohallinnosta kertoo Tivin haastattelussa ohjelmistohankkeen edistyvän aikataulun mukaisesti.Kesäkuussa julkaistiin ensimmäisen käyttöönoton rajapintakuvaukset ja tässä kuussa on luvassa rajapintojen testaamista koskevan sidosryhmätestaussuunnitelman julkaiseminen.Hallitus teki esityksen tulorekisteriä koskevasta lainsäädännöstä 5. lokakuuta.Sen on määrä tulla voimaan 2019 alusta lähtien.Hankkeen kokonaiskustannus 15 vuoden sopimusajalle on arviolta 90 miljoonaa euroa.
The asteroid that came “damn close” to slamming into the Earth this week could cause utter devastation several decades down the road, and scientists can’t rule out an eventual collision.The rock, known as 2012 TC4, came within a cosmic hair of our planet just a couple of days ago, slipping by at a distance of just over 27,000 miles, but future safe passes are anything but certain.TC4 came so close to Earth this time around that it was nearly within the orbit of many of our satellites, and just a fraction of the distance between Earth and the Moon.Based on current models forecasting its path, the rock will perform another near-miss in 2050, and we should be safe for that event, but its return in 2079 is giving scientists a reason to worry.“We know today that it will also not hit the Earth in the year 2050,” Rudiger Jehn of the Eurpean Space Agency explains.“But the close flyby in 2050 might deflect the asteroid such that it could hit the Earth in the year 2079.”
When I was growing up in the 90s the concept of consumption and the definition of “energy efficient” was very different to what it is today.Halogen light bulbs were considered the saviours of planet Earth and my father was always quick to remind me to turn off the lights when I left a room.However, what it means to be environmentally aware in the modern world is vastly different.We are now being told that these little changes are not enough, and that we should all band together and make significant alterations to our lifestyles — many of which come at a steep cost — to ensure the longevity of our planet and species.Fortunately, we (at least the majority of us) haven’t ignored the facts and stats.Despite Mr. Trump’s outlandish claims that global warming is a Chinese conspiracy designed to upset America’s economy, most of us will agree and accept that changes MUST be made.
Who could ever forget Cupertino's chief design officer Jony Ive describing the iPhone 5C as "beautifully, unapologetically plastic"?Yet here comes Microsoft with an utterly glorious collection of pretentious dialogue to describe its creation of a color called Aqua for its Surface Pro accessories.Yes, it's exactly the sort of aquamarine-ish, turquoise-ish color you'd expect.But not as far as lead Surface designer Quan Jasinski is concerned.Now that doesn't sound like Bill Gates's Microsoft, does it?Jasinski, though, continued: "We are consistently inspired by everything around us varying from consumer behavior, cultures merging, nature, architecture, art, science, fashion, sports, and the list goes on."
Before this landstingslokaler has become an experience center for the vr-buffs.What: Mission IX – new vr arcade in Street 44, at Medborgarplatsen in Stockholm.a few ago, the doors to Sweden's first vr-hall.With the name of the Mission to IX has a bunch of vr-entrepreneurs transformed old landstingslokaler of approximately 750 square feet to an experience center where visitors can play the advanced (and scary) vr games.the Centre will also stimulate the development of vr services and increase the attractiveness to be a vr gamer.
It’s going to the area just outside Disneyland — Downtown Disney (in Anaheim) and Disney Springs (next to Disney World in Orlando).As we noted in August, Lucasfilm has been working with VR startup The Void on a huge, room-wide virtual reality experience called “Secrets of the Empire” that would exist only at various dedicated locations.As the trailer shows, you and your team of three others will suit up in The Void’s standalone VR rig (a backpack and headset) and go undercover as Stormtroopers in search of — what else?— “Imperial intelligence.” It seems to be set around the same time as Rogue One; K-2SO is there, and everything down to the name mentions “The Empire” rather than the “First Order” baddies found in the later-era flicks.By mapping VR to a physical space, The Void is able to build a big ol’ sprawling walk-around environment.They know where every wall and doorway is in the real world and can build the VR world accordingly; add in the fact that each player’s VR rig is self-contained in a backpack — rather than tethered to a PC tower on the floor — and The Void can go beyond the normal safety bubble (read: small area free of things to trip over) required for VR.

It may not seem like so much time has passed, but the venerable Tamagotchi turns 20 this year (in the US, that is), and to mark the occasion Bandai Namco will release a special miniature version of the gizmo.Only limited quantities of the device will be made available, an annoying trend mirroring things like the NES Classic and McDonald’s special dipping sauce.Bandai didn’t specify just how limited of quantities it will have of these six Tamagotchi models, so it is possible there will be enough to avoid a mad rush on the device.Still, it is likely we’ll see some individuals attempting to buy large quantities to resell on eBay at ridiculously marked up prices, so don’t delay in getting one if you want it.The release will take place on November 5, at which point buyers in the U.S. will be able to choose between six different shell designs, including orange, white, aqua blue, clear blue, sky blue, and a red/blue option.All six have the classic pixelated LCD display — an especially tiny one — and present a little creature that needs to be taken care of to prevent death.
Will 2018 be the year Chrome OS devices emerge as mainstream computers in the corporate world?Microsoft Windows is predicted to represent 85% of worldwide PC shipments next year, with macOS at 8% and Chrome at 6%, according to IDC.But consider this: In 2017, 5.5% of all PCs sold will be Chrome OS devices, according to IDC analyst Linn Huang.This marks the first time a third operating system has joined Windows and macOS in crossing the 5% threshold in PC shipments since IDC started tracking that data in 1995.You’ve got lots of Chrome choicesThere’s a growing selection of Chrome devices available across a broad range of styles, including convertible tablets/laptops, touchscreen and non-touchscreen devices, laptops and desktops, models geared for businesses and others aimed at consumers, and devices designed for meetings.
