IN the united states received a VW customer know that she still had access to his Jetta despite the fact that she didn't took it.Today's connected cars have many times apps and on-line systems linked to it.But only for doing away with a physical car, it does not mean that you do end with its digital companion.On VW's online portal, she could, through their old account, four months after she sold Jettan, follow what happened to the car.She could see where it was, how far it had gone and if it was locked or if any lamp was started.This despite the fact that it was sold back to a VW-dealer.
ARCore är Googles plattform för att skapa applikationer och spel som baseras på förstärkt verklighet (augmented reality/AR).Enligt Google finns det redan hundratals titlar i Play Store som utnyttjar tekniken.En stor nyhet för ARCore som har tillkännagivits under I/O är stöd för delade AR-upplevelser.En programmeringsfunktion kallad Cloud Anchors gör att flera personer kan ta del av samma förstärkta verklighet och se samma saker i sina respektive sökare.Google ger praktiska exempel som att möblera om hemma, spela spel eller skapa en gemensam väggmålning.De delade AR-upplevelserna kommer till både Android och IOS.
Multiplayer has been one of the huge limitations of early smartphone AR platforms; it’s a tough thing to tackle and relies on a lot of computer vision smarts to match what one user’s phone is seeing with another’s to create a shared virtual space.Google is tackling this problem.Onstage at I/O today, VR exec Nathan Martz announced Cloud Anchors, a tool for matching up users’ AR experiences with each other in real time.“With Cloud Anchors, we actually allow multiple devices to generate a shared, synchronized understanding of the world so that multiple phones can see and interact with the exact same digital content in the same place at the same time,” Martz said onstage.With ARCore's Cloud Anchors, we've made it easy to build shared AR experiences.Works across Android and iOS.
There are Wi-Fi routers, and there are mesh Wi-Fi routers, and now Netgear brings a cable modem into the mix.Its Orbi Tri-Band Mesh Wi-Fi Cable Modem Router System incorporates a DOCSIS 3.0 cable modem so you can further decrease your network's physical footprint.Just because it's DOCSIS 3.0 doesn't necessarily mean your cable provider will accept it.Netgear says that its supported by Comcast Xfinity and Spectrum, with Cox coming within a few months and others later.The cable modem specs include 32x8 channel bonding with all 32 supported simultaneously downstream and a theoretical maximum download speed of 1.4Gbps.The router supports a theoretical maximum of 2.2Gbps over Wi-Fi, incorporates MU-MIMO and guest Wi-Fi and has four Ethernet ports.
Once upon a time, sharing files with other people would mean a lot of copying and pasting, and fumbling around with USB sticks – but thanks to the rise of the web and faster broadband speeds, the same job can now be accomplished in just a few mouse clicks.The only problem now is choosing which file-sharing service to make use of, and we've collected seven of the best ones here.Each has their own advantages, and we'll explain why you might choose one over the others as we go.Maybe the only mark we can put against Dropbox is that you only get 2GB of storage for free – an upgrade to 1TB of room will cost you £9.99/$9.99 a month.Of course, the service goes well beyond file sharing, so even at that price it still represents great value for money.Even the staunchest Apple or Microsoft fan would have to admit Google does the web stuff rather well, and Google Drive runs Dropbox very close in terms of sharing files—which one is best for you could well depend on which one you already spend more of your time in.
As the vanemänniskor we are, it is difficult to change the platform.In a market that is in decline, Huawei and Apple were the only ones that have a growing turnover.Therefore, it is interesting when both release new tablets.if you Have not already someone a tablet so is there any of these that you will buy, then you can watch movies and series on the planet and surf the web or tinker with a spreadsheet when you are on the go.Apple sits firmly on the throne, but Huawei, to enter with powerful hardware that is breathing down Apple's PRO in the neck.the Price on the ports, however, MediaPad M5 closer to the new iPad.
He was opposed to the project having a Community Code of Conduct that insists all people are welcome and are to be treated with respect.The CCoC has become a battleground for programmers these days.In other words, these internships are only for people in underrepresented gender and racial groups in the programming/open-source worlds and are not open to white men or Asians/South Asians.We all seemed committed to just writing a good compiler framework.Except those whose political belief mean that they don't agree with the code of conduct.It has only talked to the intern-placement group so far, and hopes to hire one in the future, Outreachy organizer Sage Sharp explained in a tweet.
Xiaomi is in the fifth place in the world.But unlike many of its rivals, this manufacturer is focusing on China and India mainly.Honestly, Xiaomi hasn’t done much to enter the US market.Especially, if taking into consideration how the US refuses the Chinese smartphone makers one after another, the manufacturer has to look towards other markets rather than the US.As for Europe, there is only one country hosted this brand officially.But today it became known Xiaomi is negotiating with a very popular European carrier, Three UK.
In the world of Star Wars fandom, there are fans, and then there are fans: the cosplayers, the Funko completists, the crawl-reciters.And then there's Greg Dietrich, who has spent the last six years of his free time building a full-size replica of the Millennium Falcon’s iconic cockpit in a garage in Huntsville, Alabama.Today, in fact, isn't just Star Wars Day—it's the sixth anniversary of Dietrich's decision to build the ship's flight console.A few days later he first posted his plan to rpf.com, a clearinghouse for enthusiasts who create “screen accurate” props, including furniture."As I'm posting images of the build," recalls Dietrich, "someone says 'you know if you build the console you've got to build the back wall.'"Before long others were chiming in, goading him into a project that most certainly is not making the jump to lightspeed anytime soon.

Chinese authorities revealed over the weekend that they have the capability of retrieving deleted messages from the almost universally used WeChat app.The admission doesn’t come as a surprise to many, but it’s rare for this type of questionable data collection tactic to be acknowledged publicly.As noted by the South China Morning Post, an anti-corruption commission in Hefei province posted Saturday to social media that it has “retrieved a series of deleted WeChat conversations from a subject” as part of an investigation.The post was deleted Sunday, but not before many had seen it and understood the ramifications.Tencent, which operates the WeChat service used by nearly a billion people (including myself), explained in a statement that “WeChat does not store any chat histories — they are only stored on users’ phones and computers.”The technical details of this storage were not disclosed, but it seems clear from the commission’s post that they are accessible in some way to interested authorities, as many have suspected for years.

When I saw the picturesque video of Kate Middleton standing outside the hospital doors holding her newborn baby in her arms for the world to see, looking fresh-faced, beautiful, and let’s face it, pretty much perfect, my first thought wasn’t, oh, how lovely!I studied her immaculate makeup and perfectly styled red dress and imagined the team of people it must have taken to make her look so effortless before the big reveal.Only, it couldn’t have been effortless.Your body, after all, doesn’t just ping back into shape hours later.Why do we feel we must present ourselves as if we’ve just stepped out of a salon, not a maternity ward?I think I looked pretty fresh-faced after giving birth, but as far as the rest of me was concerned, you would not have found me looking so picturesque.
After nearly 12 years on the market, Jeep has ended production of its wildly successful Wrangler JK model.The last vehicle, a white Wrangler Rubicon Unlimited, rolled off the assembly line at the Toledo, Ohio factory on Friday, months after its successor, the 2018 Wrangler JL, was first unveiled.Since its debut in 2006, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) produced over 2.1 million Wrangler JK models, selling an average of more than 180,000 units during its 12-year lifespan.The Wrangler JK is noteworthy milestone for the Jeep brand, as it was the first Wrangler to feature a four-door option.This made it an almost immediate success, as the vehicle now appealed to a much wider consumer market that was rapidly becoming more interested in crossovers and SUVs.119,000 Wrangler JKs were sold during its first year of production, eventually peaking at over 200,000 sales during 2015.
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
