Today, I woke up and opened Reddit's front page like I normally do (ahem, every single day for the past six years).I've spent all morning answering dozens of texts, emails and Facebook messages from co-workers, old friends, even guys I used to go out with, wanting to know if the girl in the photo was me.It's surreal, and time-consuming, to go viral on the internet.If you're as obsessed with Reddit as I am, you might have seen a picture of a woman standing in front of a William-Adolfe Bouguereau painting called "The Broken Pitcher" looking strikingly like the girl in the 1891 portrait.I posted the photo to Instagram (with a filter to add an old-timey feel) and Facebook, where my friends and family generally thought the photo was cool.Up until a few days ago, my 10-month-old Instagram photo received a whopping ...11 likes.
BMW is the company that gave us the modern sports sedan and for the past four decades has remained the standard bearer in the segment.This week, BMW gave the public a glimpse at its vision for the future of the sports sedan with the all-electric i Vision Dynamic show car at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show."At the BMW Group, the future of electric mobility has already arrived," BMW chairman Harald Krüger said in a statement."With the BMW i Vision Dynamics we are showcasing how we envisage future electric mobility between the i3 and i8: a dynamic and progressive, four-door Gran Coupe.According to BMW, it will have 25 models equipped with an electrified drivetrain.Here's a closer look at the new BMW i Vision Dynamic concept:
Lääketukkuyhtiö Oriolan toimitusvaikeudet eivät juuri ole heilutelleet yhtiön osaketta, mutta kriisi tulee laskemaan yrityksen kolmannen vuosineljänneksen tulosta."Yhtiölle on varmasti tullut menetettyä myyntiä ja ylimääräisiä kuluja kolmannelle vuosineljännekselle, oli tuo sen verran iso show."Näissä projekteissa on lähes aina käynnistysvaikeuksia, mutta en kuitenkaan usko, että yhtiössä ajateltiin asioiden menevän niin hankaliksi, ettei se saa toimitettua isoa osaa tuotevalikoimastaan apteekkeihin viikkoon."Evli Pankin analyytikko Joonas Häyhä uskoo myös, että järjestelmän käyttöönottoon liittyvät kulut ovat suuremmat, kuin yhtiö odotti.Vaikka toimitusvaikeudet ovat negatiivinen asia, ovat ne Häyhän mukaan luonteeltaan kertaluontoisia ja muutenkin melko tyypillisiä uusia IT-järjestelmiä implementoitaessa.Osakkeen kurssi on ollut laskusuhdanteessa koko vuoden, sillä vuoden alun 4,3 eurosta laskua on tullut noin kaksikymmentä prosenttia.
Amazon's controversial 1-Click patent opens with a summary that's decidedly dry.Despite its stiff language, that US patent, which was granted in 1999, helped open the internet to droves of shoppers by allowing customers on Amazon.com to buy stuff with -- you guessed it -- just one click.It also became a lightning rod for what's wrong with the US patent system, with some griping that too many and too broad patents were getting OK'd.It's a world that's gotten particularly messy and confusing in recent years as you have to grapple with multiple ways to buy that new frying pan online.Also, PC shopping -- where the bulk of online purchasing happens today -- could be streamlined thanks to an initiative including Google, Apple and Facebook.This project would let customers add payments information into their web browsers and use these credentials at any participating website.

Att Python är ett poppis programmeringsspråk och framför allt att dess popularitet ökar märks på många sätt.Håll i er nu, det här kan bli lite komplicerat.I ett blogginlägg beskriver dataanalytikern David Robinson hur intresset för Python har ökat stadigt sedan 2012.Faktiskt så till den milda grad att det har gott om alla andra språk som avhandlas på Stack Overflow.För det första rör den användare från höginkomstländer som USA, Storbritannien och Sverige.En anledning att särskilja dessa länder är att de skiljer sig åt från till exempel Indien, Kina, Ryssland och Brasilien.

But the company's future will be determined by something else entirely, writes Sven Carlsson.In internetsvängen going to people unjustifiably, often with the word ”revolutionary”, especially when it comes to the products.For more than ten years ago, Steve Jobs introduced a product that, despite it being unfinished would change their users ' everyday lives.this version is rumored to have face recognition, better screen and a bunch of other features you can read about here and there.the Price will reportedly be increased to 1 000 dollars, the equivalent of 8 000 sek.Apple's share has risen by almost 40 per cent since the end of the year just on the anticipation that the new Iphone is going to sell like previous versions – or even better.
You know, many generations of language reformers have tried and failed to fix the sloppy way humans naturally use language.Perhaps the most famous attempt was in 1668 by Royal Society Fellow John Wilkins, who created a language intended as a replacement Latin as the universal language of scientific (then called "philosophical") communication.The first order of business was to get rid of all that figurative cruft and replace it with precisely defined concept-signifiers.The attempt, while attracting grea
Zelle, a new payment service backed by more than 30 US banks, will launch its standalone app on September 12th to take on competitors like Venmo and Square Cash.The network had been quietly powering money transfers for major US banks including Bank of America, Chase, Wells Fargo, and Citibank since launching in June.Since the network works directly with banking partners, money can be transferred between accounts — regardless of bank affiliations — for free, and can be withdrawn in minutes.In comparison, Venmo balances need to be “cashed out,” and it can take at least 24 hours until that money is available in your bank account.Venmo parent company PayPal recently offered instant withdrawal for 25 cents per transaction, but has yet to roll out a similar feature on Venmo.For example, the Zelle app offers the ability to split payments between multiple people, making to easier to charge friends for a shared meal or taxi ride without individually starting a new transaction per person.
Opinion: Free no longer goes as far as it used toI’ve been asked recently for my advice on whether or not companies should send free product to some of their target influencers in return for promoting their brand and products.But what type of guarantee can you get with “free?”This approach to influencer engagement is not uncommon: It’s actually something I’ve seen consistently over the past few years.Despite the global explosion in popularity many influencers have enjoyed, too many brands are failing to splash the cash and form paid partnerships with these potentially game-changing communicators.As the evolution occurred, the vast majority of PR and communications people saw these emerging bloggers, vloggers and social media gurus as an extension of the earned media engagement they were already undertaking.
Today, a secret US military space mission has been launched by a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket, the Chaos Computer Club has warned of vulnerabilities in Germany's election tech, ultrasound audio can send secret commands to your digital assistant and more.Also known as the Orbital Test Vehicle, the space plane is likely to remain in orbit for an extended period – the previous OTV-4 mission spent two years aloft.There's intense speculation as to what the X-37B missions are in aid of, ranging from suggestions that it could be a space weapon to the rather more prosaic option of a debris and satellite recovery system.The Chaos Computer Club has warned that it found serious vulnerabilities in the PC-Wahl 10 software used to count and transmit voting results in Germany (Motherboard).In a press release, the group said it found "a whole chain of serious flaws, from the update server, via the software itself through to the election results to be exported allows for us to demonstrate three practical attack scenarios in one".The hackers, who shared their findings with the software's developers in anticipation of Germany's September 24 elections so that patches could be implemented, found problems including insecure voting data transmission, no authenticity verification for updates, and the use of easily guessable credentials in some server setups.
Ryan Murphy and Sarah Paulson have a history of making magic together, and their new series, 'Ratched,' which is headed to Netflix, is shaping up as another winner.More than 40 years after its release, Miloš Forman’s One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest remains a landmark film, a classic story of a battle of wills between Jack Nicholson’s small-time criminal Randle McMurphy, whose actions land him in a mental institution in rural Oregon, and Louise Fletcher’s controlling Nurse Ratched.Screenwriter Ryan Murphy — one of the most prolific TV writers of the 2010s, having masterminded series such as Glee and American Crime Story — is heading up a prequel series, titled Ratched, which will focus on the villainous nurse.According to Deadline, Netflix has picked up the series for 18 episodes split over two seasons.Starring as the eponymous lead character will be Sarah Paulson, who has worked extensively with Murphy on several shows, including American Horror Story (which Murphy co-created with Brad Falchuk), American Crime Story, Nip/Tuck, and Feud.Ratched is the brainchild of Evan Romansky, who wrote the script fresh out of film school.

Digitalisaatio on ollut viimeisen vuosikymmenen suurimpia yhteiskunnallisia muutosajureita.Digitalisaation eteneminen on näkynyt toimintatapojen muutoksena niin teollisuudessa, tilitoimistoissa kuin perinteisessä postinjakelussakin.Muutoksen vaikutukset näkyvät ihmisten jokapäiväisessä elämässä, kuten erilaisten verkkopalveluiden lisääntyneenä käyttönä.Digitalisoitumisen myötä yrityksissä toimivia manuaalisia prosesseja ja siten perinteisiä työtehtäviä tulee poistumaan kokonaan.Tämä kehitys kiihdyttää digitalisaatiota entisestään – syntyy uusia palveluita, joita käyttämällä asiakkaiden käyttäytyminen muuttuu ja syö samalla vanhojen ja paikoilleen jääneiden palveluiden kysyntää.Virtuaalinen tieto linkittyy fyysisiin paketteihin viivakoodien skannausten yhteydessä ja on sekä lähettäjän että vastaanottajan käytettävissä useimmiten reaaliaikaisesti.
The lawsuit, filed against the startup and its co-founders by former director of digital and social media Elizabeth Scott, alleged that the company had sought to create a “boy’s club” environment and described “rampant” sexual behavior in the office, allegations that co-founders Will Mason and Taylor Freeman denied as “entirely without merit.”The lawsuit is now over, according to people familiar with the matter, and though the terms of the agreement were undisclosed, some in the virtual reality community feel that the company has dodged a bullet in reaching some conclusion over the litigation.“The matter has been concluded,” was Upload’s official statement.The Upload allegations came at the beginning of a tumultuous summer for technology companies as women (inspired, perhaps, by Susan Fowler’s courageous exposure of harassment at Uber) came forward with stories of inappropriate behavior from venture investors and executives.“From the other cases that happened along the same lines, either with Uber or 500 Startups, something happened with the people that did those things.“[Upload’s co-founders] said one little quote and then they dragged a settlement case out for long enough that it wasn’t even news anymore.”
Facebook has apparently found a new approach to giving its Stories feature a much-needed shot in the arm: soon you’ll be able to just double-post your Instagram stories to Facebook directly from the Instagram app.As Mashable reports, some Instagram users are already seeing an option to simultaneously share their image or video story to Facebook just before uploading to Instagram.In Facebook, they’ll appear in the Stories section as though you’d actually created them there, but you’ll know that those stories actually originated from Instagram because they’re denoted with an “Instagram” label beneath the user’s name.This whole experiment sounds rather desperate and sad, but it also shows how badly Facebook has so far failed at making Stories a success within the company’s principal app.If you’re like me, the Stories row at the top of Facebook’s mobile app is probably a barren desert of zero activity.None of my friends and family are using the feature.

Julkisten ja hyvinvointialojen lliitto JHL ja Akavan Erityisalat kritisoivat esityksiä nollatuntisopimusten tulevista pelisäännöistä.JHL:n mielestä nollatuntisopimusten käyttöä pohtineen työryhmän esitys lakimuutoksiksi ei turvaa työntekijöiden asemaa.Työryhmän ehdottamat muutokset eivät myöskään tuo riittävää selvyyttä nollatuntisopimusten pelisäännöistä.Työaikalakiesitys jättäisi asiantuntijan vaille työaikasuojaa, kritisoi Akavan Erityisalat lausunnossaan.Myös monityösuhteisten ja toimeksiantajistaan riippuvaisten itsensätyöllistäjien kasvavan joukon työsuojelukysymykset on liiton mielestä tarkasteltava jatkovalmistelussa.Akavan Erityisalat katsoo, että nollatyösopimuksia koskevissa ehdotuksissa esitys sairausajan palkan määräytymisestä on epätyydyttävä tilanteessa, jossa tunteja ei ole merkitty työvuoroluetteloon.
