To spend half of their time at the different meetings is not uncommon today – even in fast-growing startups.Here are seven common meeting time-wasters and struktören, effektivitetskonsulten and föreläsarens David Stiernholms tips to solve them.Möteskulturen is deeply ingrained and says that at all cost we should meet eye to eye to discuss.”of course It depends entirely on what type of meeting it is.At a kick-off meeting before a project may all need to meet in order to get along and get to know each other, but for the follow-up meetings you can attend to the far more efficient digital.”Standing telefonavbrott is a distraction that is slowly but surely have been accepted as fully legitimate.

p In just a few days, Google will kick off its annual I/O conference and the year of Android will finally begin in earnest.The company has been busy, but until Sundar Pichai takes the stage at the Shoreline Amphitheater, we won’t know for sure what Google has in store for the rest of 2017.The rumor mill has been oddly quiet with the show mere days away from starting, and we’re on pins and needles waiting to see what Google has to show us.Among our favorites, Google will be limiting background processes to eke out more battery life between charges, a new API will let us access password manager right inside Chrome, and picture-in-picture will let us work and play simultaneously on our phones.The first developer preview is for coders who need to do testing, and isn't part of the beta program.And we have to assume that Google is also prepping some long-overdue commands, like setting sleep timers, creating reminders, and reading recent texts or emails.

p Tekniksajten Engadget rapporterar att det populära mp3-formatet har dödförklarats, detta då Fraunhoferinstitutet har upphört med både licensiering och support för formatet.Mp3 såg dagens ljus 1991, men det dröjde några år innan formatet mer eller mindre blev standard för komprimerade musikfiler.Till en början användes mp3 mestadels för piratkopierad musik, men så småningom började även skivbolagen att sälja låtar i formatet.

The larger of the two, aptly called the Galaxy S8 Plus, features a beautiful 6.2-inch display that is packed into a body that feels far more compact than that size would suggest, and comes with the same gorgeous design, features, and capabilities as its smaller sibling.Which is why, we’ve rounded up some of the best protective cases and covers that are currently available for the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus!In addition, a bumper case adds extra gripability, which considering the slippery nature of glass could really come in handy.At $24.95, the Rhinoshield is far from the cheapest case found in this list, but could be perfect if you simply want a little extra protection and grip without adding any noticeable bulk.The buttons are covered, and the case features precise cutouts for the charging port, speaker, headphone jack, camera, and fingerprint scanner.This case is just 0.35mm thin, yes that is not a typo, it’s that thin.

p The Norway-based tech icon Opera is huge in Africa, with almost 100 million people using its mobile and desktop products across the continent.Recognizing this, Opera is investing $100 million (30 billion Nigerian naira) in Africa over the next two years, aiming to speed up Internet adoption and strengthen the local Internet ecosystem.The company is also overhauling its browser product with African consumers in mind, and has partnered with several major African publishers on a news curation system.On the browser front, Opera plans to add value-added services to its product, including data bundling and mobile payments.The latter is pretty exciting.It’d be interesting how integrating that – or a rival service – into a browser would work.

p Fueled by imagination, this 27-year-old Lego set—the Solo Trainer—flew thousands of hours in the hands of kids and collectors.But Adam Woodworth, an aerospace engineer and hardware designer at Google, wanted to see just how aeronautically sound Lego’s design really was, so he built a giant RC version of it.Made from various types of foam, including the one-inch thick panels used to insulate a house, Adam’s recreation is a near-perfect replica of the original Lego model that flies surprisingly well given its angled design doesn’t look very aerodynamic.A motor failure resulted in a devastating crash for the original version of Adam’s Lego-inspired plane.But he’s since rebuilt it, which took about 100 more hours than the Lego toy did.

p The next Assassin's Creed game looks set to play with the series' successful formula by opening up the game's borders for more exploration.2016 was the first year in a while that didn’t have a mainstream Assassin’s Creed release — if you don’t count the movie — so rumors abound about what we can expect.The latest ones claim that it will be called Origins and will focus on open-world gameplay set in ancient Egypt.Much like Syndicate, it too will feature two protagonists: One man, one woman.Rumors that appeared last year gave us our first hint of the game’s setting, though the suggestion early on was that it would be called Assassin’s Creed: Empire.While the Egyptian setting remains the current prediction for it, Origins is a new name that WWG was told by a claimed Ubisoft insider.

p Valve has revealed the first wave of Battle Pass features and rewards for the run up to this year's premier Dota 2 tournament, The International 2017.The in-game pass for TI7 mixes up the usual itinerary of rare and exclusive cosmetic items by offering a four player co-op campaign mode.The loosely story-led mode, dubbed Siltbreaker, will be split into two acts.The Sands of Fate arrives for Battle Pass owners later this month (May), while the final, climactic act, A Vault in the Deep, will launch in July.According to Valve's synopsis, Siltbreaker will take players of the hugely popular PC MOBA "into the blackest depths of Dark Reef... to battle through a diverse landscape of loathsome monsters, cunning traps, and other lethal terrors."The remainder of the Battle Pass is very much business as usual for Valve's eSports darling, with players hoping to increase their Battle Level enough to unlock rare Immortal Treasures, new terrain, taunts, voice-lines, emoticons, cosmetics and more.

p Google is betting big on YouTube’s future as a destination for exclusive video content: Bloomberg reports that the company will spend ‘hundreds of millions of dollars’ to fund more than 40 original shows and movies for its platform over the next year.To that end, YouTube is roping in big names to create fresh content, like comedian and actor Kevin Hart – who will try out trendy exercise routines with other celebrities – as well as talk show host Ellen DeGeneres who will take viewers through the making of her talk show.YouTube stars Rhett & Link will get a chance to flesh out their daily talk show Good Mythical Morning and grow their viewership of 12 million, and singer Demi Lovato will be shadowed by a camera crew as she writes and records her new album.The bold move could well pay off for YouTube, as, unlike traditional TV channels, can reach a global audience with its programming – and that’s a huge draw for advertisers.About half a dozen of these shows will be ad-supported and available to viewers for free.For its Red subscription-based streaming service that features original content, YouTube is slated to ramp up funding for shows, matching the $3 million – $6 million per hour budgets that are more common among major TV channels like HBO.
