Physicists from the University of Basel have observed the quantum mechanical Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen paradox in a system of several hundred interacting atoms for the first time.The phenomenon dates back to a famous thought experiment from 1935.It allows measurement results to be predicted precisely and could be used in new types of sensors and imaging methods for electromagnetic fields.How precisely can we predict the results of measurements on a physical system?This limit is expressed by the Heisenberg uncertainty relation, which states that it is impossible to simultaneously predict, for example, the measurements of a particle's position and momentum, or of two components of a spin, with arbitrary precision.A paradoxical decrease in uncertainty
Would you work more productively if you knew there 5,000 living plants surrounding you…on the 41st floor…of a Manhattan high-rise?“We think of it as the world’s best living room,” said Elizabeth Pinkham, evp of global real estate for the San Francisco-based cloud computing and an 18-year Salesforce veteran who ran the company’s successful events business, including its Dreamforce programs, for 15 years, as she gave Adweek a first look at the under-construction tower’s apex.Error loading player: No playable sources found“The New York office started 15 years ago with eight people,” said Pinkham, who says putting everyone under one roof “is about creating one Salesforce.” The company takes up about 20 percent of the building.In early May, Salesforce will open its Trailhead, the Sixth Avenue entrance that takes guests through the Salesforce client success experience.The company needed to go big here, and the selection of 1095 Avenue of the Americas, adjacent to Bryant Park, fits into one of the company’s real estate pledges.
Samsung’s latest earnings report sheds some interesting light on the state of OLED display adoption across the tech industry, with a special focus on what it could mean for the general success of the iPhone X and its successor.While LG is reportedly scrambling to get its OLED manufacturing situation in order, Samsung seems to be so flush with supply that it’s twiddling its thumbs, so to speak, as its display business grew just 3.4% this quarter while, as a whole, the greater operation grew a whopping 20%.The culprit for the lagging growth in the display market?The report pins it on a “slow demand for flexible OLED panels.” The lion’s share of Samsung-made OLED displays go to its own phones, like the Samsung Galaxy S9 and looking forward, the Samsung Galaxy Note 9.But it also is the main supplier of OLED panels for the iPhone X, and likely the iPhone X2.How Apple can turn this into a win
If you’ve ever seen Say Anything, the classic 1989 Cameron Crowe-John Cusack romance flick, you may have had fantasies about taking a boombox and serenading your crush in the wee hours of the morning, possibly to Peter Gabriel’s In Your Eyes.JBL’s new Boombox speaker can make that fantasy a reality — though it is a little hefty to hold above your head for hours on end.It’s got more of a “fun” feel than a premium feel, but it’s a boombox, so that’s appropriate.Presumably, such power is required to charge the speaker’s mammoth 20,000mAh battery.We understand the aim of making speakers ready for global distribution, but we wish there was at least a URL available leading to instructions in place of dozens of pages of paper warranty info and fine print.You can also sync it up with any newer JBL speaker with Connect+ via the JBL Connect app (this is currently limited to the newer Flip 4 and Pulse 3 speakers, though).
HOUSTON -- (April 25, 2018) -- Computer scientists at Rice University have created a deep-learning, software-coding application that can help human programmers navigate the growing multitude of often-undocumented application programming interfaces, or APIs.Known as Bayou, the Rice application was created through an initiative funded by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency aimed at extracting knowledge from online source code repositories like GitHub.A paper on Bayou will be presented May 1 in Vancouver, British Columbia, at the Sixth International Conference on Learning Representations, a premier outlet for deep learning research.Users can try it out at askbayou.com."People have tried for 60 years to build systems that can write code, but the problem is that these methods aren't that good with ambiguity," said Bayou co-creator Swarat Chaudhuri, associate professor of computer science at Rice."A developer can give Bayou a very small amount of information -- just a few keywords or prompts, really -- and Bayou will try to read the programmer's mind and predict the program they want."
Automatic savings mobile app Digit is expanding its services, adding the option to let users pay off credit card debt with money in their Digit account, as reported by TechCrunch.To try out the new feature, called Digit Pay, users create a “credit card debt” goal in the Digit app settings, then activate the service.Once Digit Pay is enabled, the app will begin to use funds saved within the account to pay off your credit card balances.There’s also a new feature called “Boost,” which tells the app how to prioritize the goals you’re saving for.So, if credit card debt is most important, you can mark it with a boost, and the app will work toward clearing that goal first.Digit was first launched in 2015, and it’s a service that smartly socks away money for you once connected to your checking account.
There were more players who wanted to access it, but as a city, we had the priority, " says Marcelle Abou Haidar, project manager for the .stockholm the city of Stockholm.A weighty motive was to make sure to keep a grip on the Stockholm brand and ensure that it is not passed to any third parties with other interests. " We didn't want it to go to a commercial player – we have our values, and it gives us control in a completely different way when we own it.also Read: In the e-nation services - so he transformed Estonia into a country "as a service"so far, the use of the tld is hard limited – only Stockholm's own operations, companies and events where the city is with and hosts can use it.But in the long term is the idea that Stockholm is going to let the other actors.
With all those steep inclines in San Francisco, it makes perfect sense for the city’s bike-sharing schemes to include electric motors with their two-wheelers.Jump launched a service using electric-powered bikes in the city last year, with Uber incorporating the scheme into its app in January as part of a trial.Now, Ford GoBikes, already a well-established bike-sharing scheme in San Francisco, is adding 250 ebikes to its fleet, easing the burden on tired legs battling to climb some of those challenging hills.Dubbed the “Ford GoBike Plus,” the new ebike can reach speeds of 18 mph, enabling you to “chop your commute in half and experience the city from new heights,” says Motivate, the bike-sharing company behind Ford GoBikes.To find a Ford GoBike Plus, riders simply fire up the app and check the online map for a lightning bolt icon indicating a docked ebike at one of its 287 stations.The bikes can be rented using a Clipper card or a smartphone with the app, and parked at any of the Ford GoBike stations throughout the city.
OtterBox continues its quest to cash in on Disney's hottest film franchises.Last week the company introduced a new collection of Star Wars Symmetry Series cases in advance of Solo: A Star Wars Story.This week it's releasing new Avengers: Infinity War cases ahead of that movie's opening on Friday.The four new Marvel cases include Black Panther, Thanos and Iron Man cases (the Iron Man case glows in the dark, a first for Otterbox), plus an "Assemble!"case that unites the Avengers on a single case (that's the one I'd rock on my phone).Both the slimmer Symmetry Series and tougher Defender Series feature the new Marvel designs.

In case you've forgotten, Apple is buying Shazam -- you know, that app that recognizes songs playing nearby?-- for roughly $400 million.Apple had planned to combine Shazam with its Apple Music streaming service.And in case you've forgotten, some European regulators were a teensy bit worried that Apple + Shazam might adversely affect competition, unfairly giving Apple Music a leg up on other music streaming services like Spotify, Pandora and Tidal.Well, it looks those fears may delay the deal further, because the European Commission (EC) has just launched an in-depth investigation.In a press release issued Monday, regulators lay out three specific things they're concerned might happen:
Adding Google Assistant to the mix rounds out Emerson's smart platform offerings, which already include Amazon Alexa, Apple HomeKit and Wink.We liked Emerson's Sensi Touch Wi-Fi Thermostat when we reviewed it back in 2016.At the time, the smart thermostat only worked with Alexa, but its comparatively low price ($130, about £95/AU$170 converted) set it apart from the rest, if you could get past its basic, somewhat outdated design.The $170 (£120/AU$225) Sensi Touch Wi-Fi Thermostat looks nicer, but offers the same general features, including remote access through a related Android/iOS app.Emerson isn't the only thermostat company to offer Alexa, Google Assistant and HomeKit support.Select Ecobee and Honeywell models also work with all three smart home platforms.
Another letter to the European Commission from the major telcos has emerged today, raising the questions whether regulators believe telcos should be philanthropic organizations not money-making machines.According to the telcos and major kit vendors, changes to the Electronic Communications Code could disincentive organizations to invest in infrastructure to power the connected era.Changes do need to be made, but it is critical these changes are justifiable and create an appropriate environment for the industry.While it is easy to forget about the telcos when companies like Google and Amazon are tearing up trees all over the place, the telco sector will be the foundation of any and all success in the digital economy; we can live without Facebook or Spotify, but without the telcos the whole pyramid collapses.The attitude of governments, regulators and bureaucratic bodies like the European Commission, seems to be the communications companies and their assets are servants of the nation.It looks like it has been forgotten the telcos are no longer nationalised bodies and the infrastructure is not a government owned asset.
Avkylningen av bostadsmarknaden går snabbt.I Stockholm lämnar flera bostadsutvecklare tillbaka mark till kommunen.Lennart Weiss, direktör på byggbolaget Veidekke, räknar med att bostadsbyggandet minskar med 25–30 procent kommande år.Veidekke sålde 75 procent färre bostäder i Sverige under första kvartalet i år jämfört med motsvarande period förra året, skriver Dagens Nyheter.– Jag har aldrig varit med om en sådan inbromsning, säger Lennart Weiss till tidningen.Bakgrunden är att bankerna ställer hårdare krav på låntagare samtidigt som Finansinspektionen (FI) infört lånekrav och amorteringskrav.
@EmilyThornberry says she is "fed up" of hearing about anti-semitism in the Labour party and says "we will sort this out" marr pic.twitter.com/Tu6EedMYsW— The Andrew Marr Show (@MarrShow) April 22, 2018Anti-Semites feel comfortable enough to approach Labour’s Shadow Foreign Secretary in the street to put forward their views, Emily Thornberry revealed today.The Islington South MP described how just last week a woman started an unacceptable conversation with her, believing it was supportive of the Labour Party.Thornberry said she was “shocked” by what she heard, but indicated this was not the first time it had happened.In Parliament last week Labour MPs revealed the scale of anti-Semitic abuse they had received from people claiming to support party leader Jeremy Corbyn.
Every year, Gartner surveys CIOs on how their jobs are changing in the digital age.“To successfully lead digital transformation, CIOs must help their organizations move beyond digital experimentation and pilots and start bringing digital best practices to scale.” That means working more closely than ever with the CEO and other senior leaders.He wanted to be located right next to the general manager for the business his IT department supported.This first seemed surprising, but as we talked, I realized it made complete sense and echoed a trend in the changing relationship between the business and IT.CIOs typically sat in a back office, seldom making critical business decisions, always searching for the balance between efficiency and effectiveness.They focused on “how” to deliver and now “what” to deliver.
Lexus is taking a risk, pushing the envelope on its best-selling sedan.This time around, you’re either going to love it or you’ll hate it.Lexus just hopes you don’t forget it.While the LS has offered full-size luxury in its battle against the big Germans, and the IS a sports sedan alternative to what Acura and Infiniti dealerships can provide, the ES has been a quiet crowd-pleaser.Satisfying a certain type of customer, certainly, but hardly standing out as it did that.Ironically, of course, it’s also become Lexus’ most popular sedan in the process.

The online security market is expanding globally, and for good reason.Whether their motive is mischief, or theft, the impacts can be far-reaching and very costly.As an example, the downtime cost on Amazon’s North American sales operations as a result of the 2016 'Dyn' cyberattack - ~211 minutes of service disruption - resulted in a loss of $32 million.Most companies don't have the same eCommerce revenue as Amazon, but this event demonstrates the impact a cyberattack can have on targeted companies.Global business investment on cybersecurity solutions will grow by 33 percent over the next 4 years, reaching $134 billion annually by 2022, according to the latest worldwide study by Juniper Research.Their new research analysis found that nearly 70 percent of 2022 spending would originate from medium-sized businesses, as cybercriminals target some of the least protected commercial operations.
A pair of amateur archaeologists -- one of them a 13-year-old boy -- unearthed an 1,000-year-old stash of coins dating back to the 10th century reign of Harald Gormsson on the German island of Ruegen in the Baltic Sea, the AP reports.Gormsson, better known by the nickname "Harald Bluetooth," was one of the last Viking rulers of Denmark.Eons after his reign, the Swedish telecom company Ericsson would name a short-range wireless protocol in honor of his ability to unite Scandinavia (scrutinize the Bluetooth logo, and you'll find the runic letters for his initials, "HB," hidden within).Today, Bluetooth seems to connect just about everything, from audio accessories and smart home gadgets to video game controllers and sleep trackers.The discovery occurred in January when archaeology buffs Rene Schoen and Luca Malaschnitschenko started scanning a field with a metal detector.Luca discovered the first coin -- soon, state-backed professionals stepped in for a thorough search of the area.
