2 is trying something different, by looking deeper into its heroes and their relationships.2 starts with a flashback like its predecessor, then segues into a massive action scene during the opening credits with four of the five Guardians fighting a mythic beast.The fifth, Baby Groot, just dances along to the music as his friends get the crap beat out of them and the credits roll.2 zigs instead of zags, because instead of keeping the Guardians together, everyone is given an individual story path that they will take through the bulk of the film, and only a few of these paths cross.As a result, the film always has several intriguing storylines going on at once, but it’s also lacking that strong cohesion that helped made the first movie so beloved.Right after that Kurt Russell shows up as Ego, Star-Lord’s mysterious, absentee father referenced in the first movie.

Helsingborgsbolaget Inyett har skapat en tjänst som ska säkerställa att företag inte betalar sina fakturor fel.Genom att kolla upp alla leverantörer och belopp innan betalningarna går ut kan Inyett varna sina kunder om avvikande belopp eller oseriösa företag.Ett exempel är när Filipstads kommun höll på att skicka 300 felaktiga fakturor – men stoppades av techbolaget.Inyett grundades redan 2009 och har kämpat länge för att hitta rätt på marknaden med sin lösning.På ett år har man gått från 7 till 23 anställda och öppnat tre nya säljkontor i Stockholm, Göteborg och även Oslo.Vi vet också att problemet är lika stort i England, Tyskland och USA”, säger bolagets vd Jone Sölvik.

Regulators in Beijing have urged Apple to tighten up scrutiny over apps available in its App Store after a recent crackdown on several live-streaming services providers.In a joint crackdown by three local government agencies, three live-streaming websites – toutiao.com, huoshanzhibo.com and huajiao.com – were found to have violated regulations concerning internet information services, live-streaming services and online performances, the Beijing Cyberspace Administration said on its official WeChat account this week.The cyberspace administration, together with the Beijing Public Security Bureau and Beijing Cultural Market Administrative Law Enforcement Team, found that some publishers broadcast live content forbidden by Chinese laws, including pornography.Other loopholes were also found in the management of user classification, verification of user identity and dealing with tips-offs, according to the statement, which said the government regulators planned to order Apple to tighten up its checks on software offered on its App Store.A Xinhua news report said the law enforcement team had already met with Apple representatives to examine live stream apps available on Apple’s online marketplace, without providing further details.Chinese regulators have stepped up controls over the streaming industry in the past year by requiring sites to monitor live content and shut down accounts in breach of rules.

På vissa större marknader är de redan tvåa bakom Canon och med nyss släppta alpha a9 vrider de om kniven ett par varv till för spegelreflexmärkena – som redan tappar försäljning så det ryker om det nu för tiden.Men man måste börja någonstans och med nya a9 är cirkeln sluten (?20 bilder i sekunden – MED autofokus – innebär att den slår Canon EOS 1DX Mark II och Nikon D5.Och ingenting verkar ha gått ut över bildkvaliteten.Rent tekniskt är a9 en helt grym kamera för fotografer som behöver knivskarpa actionbilder.20 bilder/s i snabb följd upp till 241 råfiler (eller 362 JPEG), 693 fokuspunkter som täcker 93 procent av bildytan, tyst och vibrationsfri slutare ner till 1/32 000 s samt 4K-video från hela bildsensorn (6K-avläsning) är bara en del av allt som gör kameran högintressant.

We produce more food than ever before — but our current model is unsustainable, and as the world’s population rapidly approaches the 8 billion mark, modern food production methods will need a radical transformation if they’re going to keep up.That’s a huge challenge given our current aquaculture practices, which are often inefficient, volatile (susceptible to disease), and damaging to the environment.So how do we scale production and avoid amplifying our existing problems?In this article, we’ll explore one of the most promising ideas to come out of this effort: a revolutionary closed-loop shrimp farming technique that ditches the open ocean in favor of man-made inland pools where farmers can better control environmental conditions.When commercial shrimp farming exploded in the 1970s, small-scale inland farms were launched to meet this demand and supplement the harvesting of the wild shrimp stock.But land in tropical zones is limited, so farmers often clear-cut valuable, ecologically sensitive coastal habitats to create man-made pools for their shrimp.

It's shown how its technology is tested.And it appears to have worked.The Korean tech behemoth's brand appears to have been resuscitated after the disastrous launch of the Galaxy Note 7 phone last year.You know, the phone that was recalled twice after some of its batteries failed and exploded.During the worst of that time, YouGov BrandIndex's surveys found Samsung was thought of in largely negative terms when respondents were asked, "If you've heard anything about the brand in the last two weeks, through advertising, news or word of mouth, was it positive or negative?"Now, just a day before the Galaxy S8 phone's global release, YouGov's respondents appear to consider Samsung roughly on par with Apple, which must seem odd to Apple and a relief to Samsung (neither company responded to requests for comment, though).

There’s nothing Qualcomm likes more than a good old patent scrap, but the cost of them is starting to take its toll on the bottom line.Qualcomm’s recent quarterly numbers made awkward reading, if you looked at the GAAP (generally accepted accounting principles) table, rather than the non-GAAP one (see below).Revenues were down 10% year-on-year and net income was down 36%.The reasons for this were the following one-off items included in the GAPP numbers but not the non-GAAP ones.A $974 million reduction to revenues due to an arbitration ruling against Qualcomm regarding historical BlackBerry royalty payments and the $868 million fine imposed on Qualcomm by South Korea.On top of that Qualcomm warned that future quarters are likely to be negatively affected by its ongoing patent agro with Apple, as per the slide below.

I’m pretty sure this is how casting for superhero movies works out, right?You get drawn as the character first, and then you sign the multi-picture deal.Either way, Cable co-creator Rob Liefeld’s take on Josh Brolin as the character is pretty damn awesome.Liefeld shared the art on his Instagram account to celebrate the recent news that Deadpool 2 had finally found its take on the time-travelling mutant nightmare; Liefeld, of course, co-created the character with editor Louise Simonson and Todd McFarlane on New Mutants.It’s a quick doodle that makes us think that, even if you weren’t convinced Brolin had the looks (or the jawline) to play Cable at first, he definitely does now.Presumably Cable will actually have a different costume in the film rather than a direct lift of his usual comic book look.

Liviu Babitz’s eyes well up when he mentions his young son.Babitz and others want to make biohacking more mainstream.They think artificial senses and implanted devices will be commonplace in society’s foreseeable future, and they’re jostling to get in on the ground floor of a billion-dollar industry before tech giants take over.Alex Smith, founder and sole-employee of Cyberise.me, runs his startup out of a converted double garage in Melbourne, Australia, where he keeps his assortment of equipment and packaging.“I started building my own implants because the ones that were available weren’t as advanced as I’d wanted,” he said.By then Smith hopes the biohacking industry will be booming and most people may have implants to unlock their front door, let them sense magnetic fields, or keep track of their vitals.

The government is being urged to recognise that the creative industries are as important to the economic success of the UK as cars, oil and gas, and is asking it to include the creative arts sector within its industrial strategy to a greater amount.The Creative Industries Federation has unveiled a 'blueprint' for UK economic growth and stressed the crucial role the creative industries play in unlocking innovation and growth in other sectors.The document was created by the group after consultation with 300 creative industry leaders has been submitted to the government’s green paper consultation on a new industrial strategy which closes tomorrow (17 April).Federation chief executive John Kampfner said that Brexit makes it “even more crucial that the government overhauls its approach to business to enable the creative industries – the fastest growing sector of the UK economy – to deliver more jobs, trade and exports.""There has been a tendency to dismiss the creative industries as something lightweight while claiming the glory of billions of pounds in trade that comes from hits such as War Horse, Sherlock and Slumdog Millionaire."Part of the recommendations in the document includes the creation of 'creative enterprise zones' where cities and regions could bid for bespoke culture and creative industry deals, modeled on the government’s enterprise zone programme.

Mass Effect Andromeda's lead designer Ian Frazier has spoken to IBTimes UK about the negative response to some elements of the sci-fi sequel that hit shelves toward the end of March.The issues have since been addressed in a patch, but for some time these singled-out elements dominated discussion of the game among fans.Frazier also spoke to us about an early version of Andromeda that was a "giant procedural game".So we went in thinking 'here's some stuff we're definitely going to do, and then here's some stuff we might do, maybe, let's see how the fans react'.Obviously the particulars change, but the overall timetable doesn't."But what of his own take on the negative feedback, or that of his team?

According to a 2016 report from PageFair, over 615 million devices were blocking ads by the end of 2016.Most simply want to browse the web uninterrupted by intrusive ads.These users might be surprised to know it has little impact, and might actually make you more visible.A 2010 report by the Electronic Frontier Foundation made us all painfully aware that web browsers did little to protect identifying information.After updating the details for 2017, a group of French researchers found that even the most advanced ad-blocking tools do little to stop that years later.Any extension — when paired with other identifying information — helps to create a unique fingerprint for web users.

Let’s say your airline does something to piss you off (shocking hypothetical, I know).If you’re like most people, you probably complain directly to the airline.Experts say you should also file a complaint with the Department of Transportation (DOT), though.The Airline Quality Rating ranks airline performance in the U.S. based on data filed with the DOT.For 2016, Alaska Airlines, Delta, and Virgin America topped the list and Frontier, Spirit and ExpressJet came in last.No huge surprises there, but one of the report’s authors Brent Bowen, told NPR:

The 30-person strong team has been working on the problem for five years and is based in Palo Alto, according to CNBC, and reports to Johny Srouji, who is the senior vice president of hardware technologies at Apple.There have also been unverified rumors of a separate sensor-packed Apple medical gadget.This team may be separate from Apple's more public health project, which reports to Jeff Williams, Apple's COO.The team is working on a non-invasive blood sugar monitor that could read levels without drawing blood or piercing the skin.What Tim Cook says The fact that Apple wants to make medical hardware should not be a surprise.Apple has been rumored to be working on a glucose sensor since before the Apple Watch was announced, and it's been hiring the biomedical engineers it would need to make it a reality.Apple CEO Tim Cook has also spoken at length about Apple's medical plans, most notably at a conference in Amsterdam last year.
