Toshiba has confirmed that it is considering spinning off its semiconductor business, with storage giant Western Digital named as a possible partner in the newly-formed company.The news that Toshiba was investigating a partial sale of its semiconductor arm broke earlier this week in the Nikkei Aisan Review, which claimed to have word from unnamed sources that the company is looking to spin the division out into a separate arm and sell a 20 percent stake for between £1.4 billion and £2.12 billion as a means of raising a quick influx of cash to balance out a major loss it took on a US nuclear power push.The paper named Western Digital as the interested party, citing the two company's existing partnership on a fabrication facility in Yokkaichi producing NAND flash storage chips.For Western Digital, the deal follows its acquisition of memory maker SanDisk with a demonstration of increased focus on solid-sate storage.It also represents an interesting twist on a 2012 deal forced by the US Federal Trade Commission in which Western Digital was forced to sell selected assets from its Hitachi acquisition to Toshiba following monopoly concerns.For its part, Toshiba has confirmed that it is investigating a potential spin-off but claims that no deal has yet been struck.

While Elon Musk and his SpaceX team enjoyed a successful rocket launch over the weekend following a four-month break caused by serious technical issues, the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency JAXA had less luck with the launch of a much smaller rocket on Sunday.The SS-520 F4 mini rocket, which is touted as the world s smallest satellite launch vehicle and has the potential to reduce the cost of sending small satellites into space by as much as 90 percent, launched from the Uchinoura Space Center in southern Japan at around 8.30 a.m.Although the actual lift-off went without a hitch, the rocket, which is about 10 meters 35 feet long and 50 centimeters 20 inches in diameter, stopped sending data back to mission control soon after it left the ground.As a result, the team decided to abort the mission, causing the machine to crash-land in a targeted area in the sea.The rocket, designed with help from Canon Electronics and using parts from various consumer electronics devices such as mobile phones, was carrying a small 3-kg 6.6 lb satellite built by the University of Tokyo that s designed to take high-quality images of Earth.The first stage of the rocket s flight went as planned.
They didn't get their debut at this year's CES, but we still managed to get some listening time with Bragi's imaginatively-named Headphones.Those truly wireless buds were only half-aimed at music lovers - the other half had a real fitness focus.Not everyone leads an active lifestyle, though; that's where the Headphone come in.They feel comfortable and light enough, but I'd need to use them for a lot longer than my short demo session to see if they'll leave you with acheing ears.You're bound to find the right size in a few tries unless you have abnormally-sized lugholes .They sounded more balanced and robust than the Apple AirPods I've been using, but we'll have to wait for a full review to see how well they hold up outside of a quiet hotel suite.
Every company, especially a new startup, needs at least two tactics in its marketing arsenal: content marketing and public relations.Wielded strategically, these forces can work hand in hand to help you achieve victory and conquer the competition.Think of your efforts as a military assault: Content marketing is your troops on the ground -- your ground forces.Content marketing is material you yourself publish, create and share in order to establish thought leadership, trust and credibility.Crafting and sharing great content helps you attract new leads and sales.At the basic level, content marketing is your blog, social media activity and email newsletter.

OSLO—When Geir Johan Hanssen drove to work early Wednesday, he tuned into his favorite FM radio for his 15-mile commute to Brønnøysund in northern Norway.On the way home, however, static was all he could hear across the bandwidth.Mr. Hanssen, a 55-year-old fire chief, is among the 250,000 people living in the district of Nordland who are...
Suomalaisnuoret suhtautuvat työhön kunnianhimoisesti ja ovat sitoutuneita Suomeen, selviää Perheyritysten liiton Taloustutkimuksella teettämästä kyselytutkimuksesta.Kyselyyn vastanneista 87 prosenttia oli jokseenkin tai täysin samaa mieltä väittämästä, jonka mukaan he olisivat valmiita työskentelemään lujasti, "jotta minä ja perheeni saisimme entistä paremman elintason".85 prosenttia vastaajista oli vähintään jokseenkin samaa mieltä siitä, että työpaikan vakituisuus on tärkeää, mutta vielä suurempi osa toivoi, että työajoista voisi sopia joustavasti elämäntilanteen mukaan.Tasan 90 prosenttia oli vähintään jokseenkin samaa mieltä siitä, että he haluavat työskennellä yrityksessä, joka maksaa veronsa Suomeen ja työllistää pääosin Suomessa.Kyselyn tekijät tiivistävätkin tulokset näin: "Tutkimus kumoaa yleisen myytin työtä vieroksuvista taivaanrannanmaalarinuorista, jotka vain odottavat tilaisuutta päästä kesken kiireisimmän työsesongin Balille surfaamaan."Vajaa puolet, 44 prosenttia, vastaajista oli jokseenkin tai täysin samaa mieltä siitä, että oman yrityksen perustaminen on ajatuksena houkutteleva.

A lot of display companies are talking about 4K resolution at the moment, but Dell wants to make the conversation about 8K.Dell unveiled a slew of new products at CES today, and one of the most impressive and expensive, for that matter is a new 32-inch 8K monitor.The new monitor is part of Dell s UltraSharp line, and it will be arriving later this year.Dell says that this new monitor is the first of its kind, and that s an easy claim to believe when you consider that 4K displays seem to just be catching on in popularity.Offering a grand total of 33.2 million pixels at 280 pixel-per-inch, this new UltraSharp monitor offers four times the number of pixels as 4K, and 16 times as many as 1080p.That s nothing to stick your nose up at, but for now, many consumers likely don t have a need for such a display.
Hands-on from CES 2017 of Panasonic s new flagship CSC aimed at "hybrid photographers"When TrustedReviews reviewed the Panasonic Lumix GH4, it was the first compact system camera to include 4K video capture at a time when 4K displays weren t particularly prevalent.Nowadays, that s changed and 4K/Ultra HD televisions are far more readily available – and at a price that doesn't require you to take out a second mortgage.It s worth immediately noting that the Lumix GH4 isn t going anywhere; the new model merely acts as a high-end alternative for existing owners.Panasonic says it s targeting a new type of "hybrid photographer" with the GH4; a combination of skilled amateur photographer and pro videographer.As such, you won t be surprised to discover that both still image and video capture performance sees improvements.
Imagine reading a study from a prestigious science journal and finding out that the scientists performed and wrote the study as a joke.Other years you might have found it funny.But what if the joke was so arcane that only the scientist got it?Every year around Christmastime, the British Medical Journal releases an issue allowing comically-minded scientists a chance to show off their ability to have a good time.The BMJ has been publishing joke issues for at least 30 years, according to a New York Times report, to add some fun to the otherwise stuffy world of science publishing.The reports are said to meet the same rigorous scientific standards as the rest of the journal s articles but are often more lighthearted in content than the usual output, or produced with comedic intent and contain a dose of sarcasm.
Transport for London has decided to discontinue purchases of those curvy, funky-looking London buses we all like the look of, because they re really expensive and absolutely not worth it.Mayor of London Sadiq Khan has been fiercely critical of the new Routemasters, writing in the Standard ahead of his election last year: They are the most expensive buses in the world, with extra millions spent replacing the ludicrous windows that don t open.Their batteries are too expensive to replace and their diesel engines cause too much pollution.At around £350,000 each, they ve been costing around £50,000 more than standard London buses.Millions more was spent sorting out those windows that wouldn t open, and the hop on, hop off service previous mayor Boris Johnson banged on so passionately about has also been abandoned.All in all, a bit of a disaster.
It looks like Lenovo s toe-dip in the gaming laptop market has been successful enough to make the company s gaming aspirations more permanent.Announced at CES on Tuesday, Lenovo s gaming laptops have been spun off to a Legion sub-brand—which is definitely more fitting than the IdeaPad designation of the 2016 models.The new Y520 and Y720 models will be the first to bear the Legion name.Lenovo s external design shifts are probably more noteworthy than the internal component updates.When I reviewed the Y50 in 2015, I noted that it was an excellent bargain laptop hampered by an abysmal screen.Lenovo s taken that criticism to heart, and includes an IPS display on both the Y520 and Y720, with the option of including a 4K screen on the Y720.
