Bezelless is one of those ill-fitting words we’ve been using for far too long regarding phones that are sort of bezelless, but not really.So what do we call the next generation of truly bezelless (or at least, more bezelless) phones on the horizon?Well, for starters, we can call the first one the Xiaomi Mi MIX 2.The original Mi MIX was the harbinger of the age of bezelless devices, so it’s only fitting that its successor will almost completely shave off the chin still found on the likes of the Galaxy S8, LG G6 and even the Essential Phone.In a concept video shared by its returning designer, French designer Philippe Starck, there’s barely an outline of bezel on the top three sides with a bottom bezel that looks about half as wide as that found on the Galaxy S8.Of course, concept videos are to reality what fanboy expectations are to supply chains.

According to a newly released Foreign Policy report, leaked communications show Wikileaks declined to release a cache of hacked Russian documents in the summer of 2016, dismissing the only partially published records as “already public.” While there will be plenty of talk about this being proof of founder Julian Assange’s loyalties to Russia, it most prominently displays his general hypocrisy and self-interest.Ever since Wikileaks published Hillary Clinton, the DNC, and John Podesta’s email archives, the organisation has been on the outs with many liberals and leftists in the US.It was hard to deny that Assange has held a grudge against Hillary Clinton for many years and, by all appearances, he was willing to take that grudge so far that he’d help get a maniac like Donald Trump elected.Foreign Policy’s report from Thursday will not help the Wikileaks founder gain much credibility in his denials.Foreign Policy was able to view partial chat logs from the time and was given details by a source that provided the internal communications.The logs show only Wikileaks’ side of the conversation, with an unidentified representative reportedly writing, “As far as we recall these are already public.” In 2014, the BBC reported on some of the hacked materials that were being offered to Assange, but according to Foreign Policy, that was less than half of the materials that Wikileaks turned down in 2016.

Web hosting service DreamHost is fighting a Department of Justice demand to scoop up all the IP addresses of visitors to an anti-Trump website.The website in question, disruptj20.org, organized participants of political protests against the current U.S. administration.Blogging about its objections to the warrant yesterday, DreamHost’s general counsel describes it as “a highly untargeted demand that chills free association and the right of free speech afforded by the Constitution”.DreamHost says it has not been able to see the affidavit pertaining to the warrant as those records are sealed.“That information could be used to identify any individuals who used this site to exercise and express political speech protected under the Constitution’s First Amendment.That should be enough to set alarm bells off in anyone’s mind,” argues DreamHost.

Gently easing us into the NVMe-over-Fabrics and storage-class memory futureAnalysis NetApp will bring disruptive NVMe-over-Fabrics technology to its customers in a non-disruptive way.NetApp chief evangelist Jeff Baxter gave a presentation at the Flash Memory Summit last week explaining this.On the faster media side there are NVMe SSDs and storage-class memory (SCM) such as 3D XPoint (and Samsung Z-NAND) becoming available.Faster fabric interconnects such as 25/50/100Gbit Ethernet, 32Gbit/s Fibre Channel and NVME-over-Fabrics (NVMe-oF) were bringing network access speeds up to better access the faster media types coming.NetApp will initially use the new media selectively, then scale its adoption and fully integrate it, leading to broader adoption and optimised media.

German media company Spiegel-Gruppe has had a fact-checking team since the 1950s, several years after its print weekly magazine, Der Spiegel, published its first issue.The team, called dokumentation, is organized by expertise that mirrors the publisher’s different desks, such as politics, science, economics, foreign affairs, culture and sports.Often, members of the team work on articles with journalists, providing them with relevant research on the economics of North Korea and its relationship with other countries, for instance, playing more of a consultative role as well as checking the manuscripts once they have been written.The backbone of dokumentation is a database of text articles and official information about notable people, enterprises or topics that could be useful for the journalists at Spiegel-Gruppe.Each week, the database automatically adds another 60,000 articles from German and international media and other official sources like government documents.Within dokumentation, a team of seven people has trained algorithms in the database to pull in specific sources based on content — from articles fed from Germany’s news agency Deutsche Presse-Agentur to more in-depth analysis pieces from around the world that need more contextual knowledge to understand.

We’ve waited more than a year for a new addition to the Moto X line, but the wait appears to finally be over.On Friday, Android Authority shared the first high-resolution images of the unannounced Moto X4 as well as an exhaustive list of features and specifications that its sources uncovered.According to the leak, the Moto X4 will feature a 5.2-inch Full HD display, so right off the bat you know that we’re looking at a mid-range device rather than something to compete with the iPhone 8 or Galaxy S8.There will be four global variants of the phone, but all four versions will powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 processor and the Adreno 508 GPU.The model set to launch in North America, Europe and Latin America will have 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage, while the model primed for the Asia Pacific region will have 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage.Other features include a fingerprint sensor beneath the display, a 16-megapixel front-facing camera for low-light selfies, dual cameras on the back of the phone and a 3,000mAh non-removable battery capable of turbo charging.

Kun googlaa hakusanan, pääsee pian erilaisiin aihetta käsitteleviin terveyssektorin koulutustilaisuuksiin ja seminaareihin.Vaikka Lean onkin kehitetty alkujaan valmistavan teollisuuden tarpeisiin ja jotkut sen työkalut soveltuvat pääosin vain sinne, on Lean ajatusmaailmana yleispätevä.Lean-ajattelussa tavoitteena on viilata prosessi tai tapahtuma asiakkaan kannalta mahdollisimman sujuvaksi ja ”hukattomaksi”.Tavoitteena on siis, ettei resursseja tuhlata ja saadaan läpimenoaika mahdollisimman lyhyeksi.Leanin tuntemat seitsemän hukkaa ovat turha odottelu, turha liikuttelu ja kuljetus, turha varastointi, laatuvirheet, yliprosessointi ja ylituotanto.Arvomaailmana Leanin voi kiteyttää sanoihin ”Älä Tuhlaa”.

I am going to get through this without any literary dog puns.No, you're not even going to bait me into suggesting that the new audiobooks for dogs series -- launched on Monday by Amazon subsidiary Audible.com and famed Dog Whisperer Cesar Millan -- would never allow "The Great Catsby" onto its list.Nor, indeed, "The Cat of Monte Cristo."Instead, I'll simple tell you that Millan believes classic works read by soothing voices will create calm for your dog while he or she is home alone.I cannot confirm that the other 24 percent were forced to listen to "The Diversity Myth" by David O. Sacks and Peter Thiel and Eric Schmidt and Jonathan Rosenberg's "How Google Works."Among the titles going to the dogs in the Audible series are "The Art of Racing in the Rain" by Garth Stein, "Born a Crime: Stories From a South African Childhood" by Trevor Noah and, of course, Jane Austen's "Pride and Prejudice."

Mozilla plans to release a version of its Firefox browser Tuesday that embraces a version of virtual reality for the web.Back in 2014, Mozilla developers including Vladimir Vukicevic put together a concept called WebVR.The idea was to let web browsers navigate virtual realms, and make it easier for people to create a VR world once that would work on all sorts of devices.But Vukicevic headed off to game engine maker Unity, and Google's Chrome browser beat Mozilla with WebVR support.Microsoft and Google, which sell devices to experience virtual reality and its augmented reality cousin, have a big incentive to make virtual reality real."WebVR is the major platform feature shipping in Firefox 55," the latest Firefox release calendar update says.

Straubel har installerat Solar Roof på sina hem men det framgår inte om dessa bilder är från något av deras hus.När Musk visade bilderna sa han bland annat:"I want to emphasize that there’s no Photoshopping on the roof.That is actually how it looks, and it wasn’t taken by some… it was take some pics with your phone and send them over.That’s what we’re talking about here, not some special lighting conditions, pro-photographer situation.

Google ska ha varit intresserade av att köpa Snap för 30 miljarder dollar, runt 240 miljarder svenska kronor, under förra året.Källor till Business Insider uppger att Snap missade chansen att sälja till Google för minst det dubbla bolaget är värt i dagSnap börnoterades i mars i år och Googles första erbjudande ska ha diskuterats precis innan Snap avslutade en investeringsrunda i maj förra året.I dag ligger marknadsvärdet strax under 115 miljarder kronor, att jämföra med runt 195 miljarder kronor i samband med börsnoteringen.En representativ för Snap säger till Business Insider att ryktena är falska och Google har i sin tur avböjt att kommentera uppgifterna.

When the WannaCry ransomware attack hit back in May, it was really good at causing chaos but not so great at generating ransom money.If the people behind the malware are as clumsy as they seem, they should be worried, because they recently started moving what Bitcoin they did collect during a particularly perilous time for cybercriminals.Quartz set up a tracker to follow the wallets and future transactions.The basic idea of a mixer is that a company has a large pool of their own Bitcoins that they are ready to trade.Anyone looking to further anonymise their Bitcoin can send it to the mixer and then receive an unconnected Bitcoin in return.While the public statement claimed that the founder had a change of heart about how anonymous Bitcoin should be, many people had suspicions that law enforcement was putting pressure on the company.
