Yet while HMD Global's slightly gimmicky relaunch of the Nokia name relied mostly on a device that is unlikely to wow the smartphone crowd, TCL's full-blooded BlackBerry revival with the stunning KeyOne is nothing less than the real deal.IBTimes UK went hands-on with the QWERTY keyboard-toting Android device, formerly known as the BlackBerry Mercury, and were mightily impressed with what we saw.Like the Priv that went before it, it is also as satisfying to wrap your palms around as it is to behold, feeling hefty and premium but light at the same time (somehow it weighs just 180g).The 4.5in Full HD LCD screen's 3:2 aspect ratio won't please those looking to stream widescreen videos on YouTube in crystal clear quality, but for browsing the web, drafting emails and using BlackBerry's unique app suite (including BlackBerry Messenger), it seems to do the job.On the rear lies a 12-megapixel Sony sensor borrowed from the Google Pixel, but we understand that the imaging software on the unit we tried isn't fully finalised.For what it's worth, our quick snaps were sharp, clear and colourful with natural hues.

Aren't all smartwatches essentially smartphones you wear on your wrist?The Huawei Watch 2 is different, in that it's available with built-in 4G.If you think I'm going to be texting and making calls with a watch, you've got another thing comingOh, don't be like that.Sure, constantly talking to your wrist is going to make you look like a right Dick Tracy, but there are times that it could be extremely useful.Imagine you've left your phone behind to stay nice and light for a long Sunday run, but only 20mins in it starts to rain, your hangover kicks in and all you can think about is the epic roast that your favourite pub does.

It is with this perspective that we must consider how to prepare for the IoT and how to derive value from the coming onslaught of data.A lot of hype surrounds IoT: It will catalyze business process efficiency improvements and create new personalized technology experiences and categories.Some of these statements will prove true, but in the years to come executives must ensure two things:They must not overestimate the near future and invest too far ahead of IoT technology s capabilities.I ve spent years working with companies helping them elicit value from their data.For example, an energy company operates multiple wind farms — each with dozens of turbines — in different locations.

Trump has also proposed investment in a "serious missile defense system" based on updating the Navy's class guided missile cruisers' Aegis systems and building more class guided missile destroyers.The ballistic missile defense version of Aegis and the Standard Missile 3 RIM-161 missile it controls are currently only capable of intercepting short and intermediate range ballistic missiles, not intercontinental ballistic missiles; to have a chance at taking down a US-targeted threat from North Korea, for example, they would have to be very close to the launch site and hit it early in its launch the boost phase .

I m sure there were a handful of people that Apple s newest laptops didn t piss off after last year s long-awaited unveiling.I wasn t one of them.For a device that calls itself Pro, the decision to strip away ports, use sixth — not seventh — generation Intel chips, and limit RAM to 16 gigabytes certainly weren t doing any favors to the creative types the company once appealed to.Apple, as Apple does, defended each decision proving unequivocally that it knows best.Battery life was the priority, and a one-size-fits-all approach was, and still might be, the path forward.Offering options for different use cases was simply out of the question.

If you were a relatively unknown company, you could put out quality content on twitter and it had a very good chance of being retweeted until your website crashed.Unless you have an existing fan base of 1000s, you ll be lucky to get a couple of retweets and some likes.Post a cool article or promo on Facebook, you ll essentially get some of your own customers to simply like it or a random share if you re lucky, but if you want to reach new masses, you re going to have to pay Facebook for that.Create a post on LinkedIn, and you ll maybe get a couple of likes and a few messages asking for employment opportunities.Today, everyone will still tell you content is king .Just as people eventually ignored radio ads, until TV ads came about, then ignored TV ads when you could quickly turn your attention to your phone.

Brixton Road, South London, has breached its annual air pollution limit only five days into the new year.Levels of nitrogen dioxide NO2 on Brixton Road repeatedly breached the EU limit, according to research by King s College London.EU law states that the average hourly level of NO2 must not exceed 200 micrograms per cubic metre more than 18 times a year.KCL, which runs the London Air Quality Monitoring network, found that Brixton road exceeded this annual limit 19 times in the first five days of 2017.KCL said similar pollution problems are found along many of London s main roads, including Oxford Street, Kings Road and the Strand.Last year, the first road to breach the EU s limits on NO2 was Putney High Street, which took eight days.

Social publishing startup Medium.com Inc. is laying off about one-third of its staff, as Chief Executive Ev Williams acknowledged that its advertising-based business model has fallen short of expectations.The company has plans to launch a yet-to-be-announced new business model that will make the company—and its customers—less reliant on digital advertising, Mr. Williams wrote in a blog post calling ad-supported media a broken system.We had started scaling up the teams to sell and support products that were, at best, incremental improvements on the ad-driven publishing model, not the transformative model we were aiming for, wrote Mr. Williams, who co-founded Twitter Inc., itself an advertising-supported microblogging platform.Medium has raised more than $130 million in capital from investors including Andreessen Horowitz and Lerer Hippeau Ventures.When San Francisco-based Medium launched in 2012, it published original content and used its platform to host commercial publishers, earning it the moniker platisher —a combination of platform and publisher.Last year, it sold or spun off its own publishing brands, with the publishing platform the remaining business.

LG has its hands in almost every consumer electronics cookie jar except one: robots.Well, except maybe for the HOM-BOT robot vacuum, which everyone makes these days, and the G5 Friend Rolling Bot, which is practically a hi-tech toy for cats.At CES 2017, however, LG will get serious with robots as it unveils its first team of non-cleaning robots for both private and public use.And, of course, like any smart thing these days, they will be equipped with AI to make them feel more personal and maybe even human.Actually, LG s latest robot set will still include a cleaning robot.Or more precisely a groundskeeper robot.

View photosMoreLeEco's new Le Pro3 phone is on display during a press event in San Francisco, California, U.S. October 19, 2016.By David Stanway and Jess Macy YuSHANGHAI/HONG KONG Reuters - China's cash-strapped LeEco said it is in talks to secure 10 billion yuan $1.4 billion from an unidentified strategic investor, but the announcement was seen as insufficient to dispel concern over the high-tech conglomerate's financial health.Led by tycoon Jia Yueting, LeEco expanded aggressively into electric and driverless cars and smartphones after making its name in video streaming, but last month warned staff it was facing 'a big company disease' after growing too fast and in too many directions left it short of funds.LeEco is still finalizing details of the investment, according to a filing by its Shenzhen-listed unit Leshi Internet Information and Technology .Leshi said it would extend a trading halt on its stock but the halt would not exceed 10 days.

so basically ive been running a couple of ads on fb and ig recently for a clothing brand and getting the hang of it..i understand the basic premise and some intermediate stuff of running these ads..right now im looking to do them betterim just sticking to interest based targeting for now ill do custom/lookalike/retargeting/behaviour etc later and wondering how i can be better at it?currently im just focusing on some more targeted interests putting in 'vogue' or 'miranda kerr' instead of 'fashion' im trying to include more specific things like events or organizations or blogs but many times they dont register in the interest tab..also is making an ig ad worth it or is it better to make an fb ad and run it on ig as well?
