Kanske soundbar-högtalaren som är snyggast att titta på, och den är dessutom användarvänlig.Ljudet saknar lite dynamik och attack och subwoofern är en aning fördröjd så att man hör var den står i rummet.Inget stöd för trådlösa bakhögtalare.LG SJ9 är en läcker, rundad soundbar som ser precis likadan ut som den som ingår till den lövtunna OLED-TV:n Wallpaper.Men medan Wallpapers högtalare elegant hissar upp två extrahögtalare när den aktiveras så är de infällda på ovansidan i SJ9.Högtalaren kopplas enkelt till nätverket med appen Music Flow, sedan är det bara att strömma musik trådlöst till den inbyggda Chromecast-mottagaren.
Mark van Dongen ended his own life in a euthanasia clinic 15 months after suffering such serious injuries he was paralysed from the head down.Van Dongen’s father Cornelius – also known as Kees – attended the trial at Bristol Crown Court on Thursday.Using a Dutch interpreter, Kees told the jury his son had been raised in Holland and came to England when he was 22, firstly as a student and then graduating as a civil engineer.His health and mental health was 100 per cent.”Kees travelled straight from Belgium to the UK after the incident and spent four months learning to communicate with his son, via a sheet of paper with the alphabet on for van Dongen to indicate letters with his tongue.He added: “He wanted to stay in England, he was always happy in England and met a girlfriend here.”
Vodafone has inked a deal for a full-fibre network built by CityFibre, which could connect up to 5 million premises over the next eight years.The network is expected to reach one million homes in 12 towns and cities by 2021, and could be extended to another four million in 50 locations by 2025, with construction commencing in 2018.The initial build is expected to cost up to £500m over 20 years depending on demand.The first customers are expected to be connected from next year, with Vodafone having the exclusive marketing rights while the network is under construction.The locations of the deal have not been disclosed.The new network will compete with established Openreach and Virgin Media services following previous discussions attempting to negotiate a deal between BT's subsidiary and its customers to bring full-fibre networks to internet users nationwide.
Första ryktet om Samsung Galaxy S9 kom redan i början av augusti och hävdade att telefonen inte kommer ha en ultraljudsbaserad fingeravtrycksläsare som sitter under skärmen.Den tekniken sades inte implementeras förrän i och med Galaxy Note 9.Sydkoreanska The Investor rapporterar nu samma sak och citerar lokala nyhetskanaler.Samsung kommer enligt utsago att börja massproducera Galaxy S9 nästa månad.Ett tidigare rykte har gjort gällande att S9:an sannolikt lanseras i januari nästa år.Om läsaren inte sitter under skärmen får vi hoppas att den bakre placeringen i vilket fall är mer fördelaktig än i S8 och S8 Plus.

Google released a security patch for its new Pixel 2XL phones on Monday, addressing various screen issues such as more color saturation options and protections against image burn-in.Since its launch in October, the Pixel 2XL has been plagued by complaints the screen looked a bit dull.To address the issue, Google has added a new Color menu that allows users to choose among Boosted, Natural, or Saturated.Google's patch also aims to resolve image remnants lingering on Pixel 2 XL screens with planned user interface changes that include new fade-out new navigation buttons at the bottom of the screen.After a brief period of inactivity, the buttons will automatically dim to prevent image burn-in that some users have complained of."These features have been carefully designed so as not to detract from the user experience," a Google community manager wrote in a blog post on Monday.
US President Donald Trump told a gathering of Japanese officials at a state banquet that he "never knew we had so many countries" in the world until after winning the election, and Twitter couldn't stop laughing.During a speech at the Akasana Palace in Tokyo on his last night in Japan – the first leg of his maiden trip to the Asian-Pacific region as president, Trump discussed his relationship with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, which he said "got off to quite a rocky start"."My relationship with Shinzo got off to quite a rocky start because I never ran for office, and here I am," Trump said.But I didn't know you were supposed to not see world leaders until after you were in office, which was January 20th.It was not a nice thing to do, and I understand that from the standpoint of the President whose place you were taking."He described Abe as a "very aggressive, strong, tough prime minister" and said Japan and the US "will have incredible friendship and incredible success for many centuries to come."
Danska Margrethe Vestager har i sin roll som EU:s konkurrenskommissionär gjort sig känd för sin skarpa kritik mot techjättar så som Apple, Google, Facebook och Amazon och hur de hanterar konkurrens och skatter.Under techkonferensen Web Summit som äger rum i Lissabon i dagarna skruvade hon upp kritiken ytterligare, enligt Financial Times."Motiven för att överträda konkurrenslagstiftningen är lika gamla som Adam och Eva.Och när du kombinerar det med makt får du en väldigt farlig cocktail”, sade konkurrenskommissionären enligt tidningen.Läs mer: Vinstfesten fortsätter – men har techjättarna hamnat i en framgångsfälla?Google, Apple och Facebook ska ha pekats ut som exempel på företag som förvrider konkurrensen genom att utnyttja sin starka ställning på marknaden.
That’s what some would call it: the so-called purists, asked to consider an electric super sports car with the Lamborghini badge.“At this moment, Lamborghini is a small company,” Reggiani points out, “we are focused on products.We have identified two areas where that change can be more radical.”The results, embodied by this new Terzo Millennio concept, are astonishing.Like a battery, they’re designed to store and then release power; however, supercapacitors have longer cycle lives, charge more quickly, and discharge more rapidly than batteries.Supercapacitors have, traditionally, had issues however.
The electric vehicle tax credit won’t die without a stirring defense — major automakers are moving their considerable lobbying might behind defending the credit, according to Automotive News, in the face of its proposed elimination in the new tax plan laid out by Republicans last week.Carmakers have obviously spent a lot of money, time and effort shifting their long-term plans toward electric vehicles and alternative powertrain options, so there’s a lot at stake when it comes to the tax credit in terms of helping spur adoption and managing the short-term cost differential that exists when it comes to building internal combustion cars versus those that use battery packs and electric motors.OEMs are changing their ways in order to meet a number of deadlines set by local and federal governments around the world for making their streets emissions-free, or at least greatly reducing emissions from vehicles.The U.S. incentives are a big driver for helping bring consumers along for the ride as automakers look to meet regulatory requirements, but if they’re stripped in this overhauled tax plan, it could leave automakers stuck between a rock and a hard place in terms of moving forward with their EV strategies.Luckily, the combined lobby power of the automakers, both U.S. and international, is not something that lawmakers can easily ignore.
The benefits of physical exercise on academic learning have long been documented, yet three years after Public Health England issued a report detailing the positive link between pupil health and wellbeing and academic attainment, young people's participation rate in physical exercise is still falling.This trend is particularly true of girls.The complex and largely negative attitudes held by many girls towards sport and physical activity is an issue that schools have been attempting to address for years.Physical Education in schools has been regularly criticised as inappropriate for many girls' needs, with a narrow curriculum that is dominated by competitive team games.Throughout my teaching career, I have seen girls become reluctant exercisers simply because the curriculum they are offered in school is too narrow.I believe that sport should be about encouraging and motivating young people to participate in physical activities that they can continue into their adult lives.
It’s a far crawl to the top of the ad industry, and even today’s marketing heavyweights started out making barely enough to pay for rent.We asked agency executives to share the salaries they earned at the start of their careers and included what those numbers amount to today, accounting for inflation.I met everyone who walked through the door — employees and clients — so it was a fast way to get to know the business.”Mike Sheldon, chairman & CEO, Deutsch North America“A month before I graduated from Michigan State, I landed a job at Y in California as an account coordinator on the Suzuki motorcycle account.We shared ties and thought we were really clever for using lawn furniture inside, since it doubled for both indoor/outdoor lounging.”

Chip Somodevilla / Getty Images• US President Donald Trump's Twitter account went down for several minutes Thursday night.• Plenty of people have quit their jobs in wild ways or devoted their last day at work to some pretty outlandish shenanigans.Some people just like to go out with a bang.This could be the reason why US President Donald Trump's controversial personal Twitter account was out of commission for a few minutes Thursday night.After some confusion, Twitter released a statement pointing a finger at an unnamed employee, who was apparently wrapping up their last day at work, Business Insider reported.
Bring back the six-day bike racing.The Houston Astros won their first World Championship last night—their first after fifty-six years’ trying—taking down the Dodgers, 5–1, in L.A., in the seventh and final game of the World Series: a glorious but un-tense finale in which the ’Stros did all their scoring in the first two innings.Astro fans everywhere, including the jam-packed hordes at their home Minute Maid Park, who were watching on giant television screens, loved every moment of this three-hour-and-thirty-seven-minute trial, but, dutifully sitting by my home set, I longed for the thrilling back-and-forth of the previous six, including even that 13–12, twenty-eight-hit, ten-inning monster of Game Five.As happens so often in a long series, the joys and triumphs of the winners and their rooters remain pure, while the rest of us, and not only the Dodger fans, try not to think about several inexorable but excruciating failures and pains.We must put aside, for instance, what today must look like for Yu Darvish, last night’s Dodger starter, who was gone after those two innings, and who had lasted for a bare five outs in his Game One start, while coughing up six hits and four runs.Dodger first baseman Cody Bellinger struck out three times last night and seventeen times in the Series, in the end resembling only an embarrassed high-school swinger up there.

The Trump administration said in September it would end the Obama-era program, which lets immigrants brought to the US illegally as children before 2007 stay without fear of deportation."DACA has produced -- and is continuing to produce -- important benefits for America's companies and for our economy as a whole," the companies wrote in the brief (PDF).Dreamers are filling vacancies at companies that cannot find enough workers to fill their needs."Apple, which filed its own brief opposing the move, said the company employs more than 250 Dreamers in 28 states."These talented and entrepreneurial people fill important and varied roles across the company, including in operations, research and development, administration, sales and marketing, and retail," Apple's VP of People Deirdre O'Brien wrote in the brief, seen by Axios.That unique culture enables employees throughout Apple to do the best work of their lives and excel at creating the most innovative products and providing the very best customer service," O'Brien wrote.

In early 2016, a crisis unfolded at Tesla Inc.’s TSLA -0.25% electric-car factory.Tesla took the unusual step of placing more than a dozen workers at the end of the assembly line who whacked doors and side panels into shape with rubber hammers, according to people familiar with the matter.The company suffered months of delays as it learned to build the Model X, leading to long hours and injuries as factory workers rushed to meet lofty goals, say people familiar with the effort.But as Tesla cranks up production on the Model 3 sedan, it is having to wrestle with mounting signs of labor unrest that could disturb the Silicon Valley company’s effort to build its first electric car for the masses.Several workers say the quality and design issues stemming from the Model X assembly have left them tired and worried about strenuous working conditions re-emerging as the company falls behind in meeting Mr. Musk’s ambitious goal of producing 5,000 cars a week by year’s end.Tesla made just 260 Model 3 cars during the third quarter, missing its projection of more than 1,500.
