Aurelia says the plan was inspired by the boarding house, a once prevalent model in the U.S. that was replaced after World War II with the rise of suburban living.The Days exhibit explores the potential of portability, proposing strange new types of personal spaces—two inflatable, wifi-connected spheres that can you can climb inside and roll around to new environments.It suggests that you really can live anywhere, as long as you can get online.Years, the least architectural installation of the bunch, is a shell construction that imagines a home built for living, not profiteering; it contains only those things necessary to qualify for a mortgage: a roof, running water, electricity, a lavatory, and a basin—and spartan examples of each, at that.Our goal was to make immersive environments to explain an idea, says Hesselbrand cofounder Magnus Casselbrant, pointing out how space—rather than lots of complex text—can speak for itself.But after the Brexit fallout, Brits might consider all the money-making options they can get.
CloudLock s technology protects content based on remote services such as Office365, Google Drive and SalesforceCisco on Tuesday said it would acquire CloudLock, a cloud-based security provider, for $293 million £219m in cash and stock, as companies look for ways to protect documents and other content that is increasingly hosted in remote facilities.The Massachussetts-based startup, launched in 2007 by three co-founders who met while serving in the Israeli Defense Forces, provides cloud access security broker CASB technology that allows organisations to monitor the security of cloud-based content and enforce access policies regardless of the device used to access the data.Cloud controlscloud data protectionIt allows administrators to put in place specific controls based on location, according to the company.The technology addresses concerns raised not only by the cloud, but also by the trend that sees employees increasingly using their own devices to carry out work tasks in locations that may range from their homes to public Wi-Fi networks.CloudLock, which Cisco said has about 700 customers, competes with companies including Skyhigh Networks, CipherCloud, Netskope and Microsoft, which recently purchased CloudLock competitor Adallom.CloudLock brings a unique cloud-native, platform and API-based approach to cloud security which allows them to build powerful security solutions that are easy to deploy and simple to manage, said Rob Salvagno, vice president of Cisco s corporate development unit, in a statement.

A German court on Friday handed publisher Axel Springer — the parent company of Business Insider, Bild, and Die Welt — a material win in its fight against ad blockers, which users can install on computers or mobile devices to prevent advertising from being shown.The appeals court in Cologne on Friday banned German startup Eyeo, the parent company of Adblock Plus, from charging Axel Springer a fee to appear on its "Acceptable Ads" whitelist.The whitelist lets companies that submit advertising to Eyeo, which is not deemed to be annoying or intrusive, to have their ads served to Adblock Plus' users.Large entities, such as Google and Criteo, are charged 30% of the additional revenue created for having those ads whitelisted.Now, the court ruled that Axel Springer will not have to pay to appear on the whitelist, which could open the floodgates to the many other large entities taking Eyeo to court on this matter too — at least in Germany, where 25.3% of internet users have ad blockers, according to a 2015 report from PageFair and Adobe."The appeals court ruled it did not have objections to ad blocker usage, but agreed with Axel Springer that the Acceptable Ads list arrangement was in breach of German unfair competition law.Adblock Plus explained in its blog post:Axel Springer s attorneys used this sub-clause Paragraph 4a UWG to justify their secondary request to the court: to ban an adblocker if that ad blocker allows ads that meet certain criteria and requires that Springer emphasis mine needs to pay a fee for it.Now, the Acceptable Ads initiative to which this obliquely refers is completely fair and utterly transparent.What it provides is a way for publishers and advertisers, if they so choose, to reach ad blockers on their terms.Last September, a German court said that Adblock Plus does not breach laws on competition, copyright, or market dominance — the arguments first brought by Axel Springer, which went on to appeal.Reporting by Lara O'Reilly, Business Insider and from Reuters: Nikola Rotscheroth; Writing by Harro ten Wolde; Editing by Georgina Prodhan Disclosure: Axel Springer is Business Insider's parent company.
It was reported earlier this month that Samsung may replace Android with its own Tizen OS on all the Korean company s mobile devices.Now, another big smartphone manufacturer, Huawei, is said to be considering a similar course of action.A report from The Information says the Chinese company is building an alternative operating system as it "doesn t want to be on the crutch of Android."The move is partly prompted by a recent statement from Google CEO Sundar Pichai that suggested the company wants more control over OEMs' devices.Huawei stands at number three behind Samsung and Apple on the list of world s largest smartphone manufacturers, mostly thanks to the popularity of its mobile devices in China.The company is looking to improve its current Android experience, which has been criticized for its poor user interface and attempts to imitate iOS.

Software is still an issue for Huawei phonesChinese handset manufacturer Huawei may be building its own mobile operating system that will help it reduce its reliance on Google's Android claims a new report.If successfully developed, Huwaei will join the likes of Samsung and OnePlus, which have built their own OS in the form of Tizen and Oxygen.The Information reports that the Chinese company is "secretly developing an alternative mobile operating system", citing three people close to the project.The Huawei skin has, however, often been labelled as an iOS rip-off especially the way the app icons look.It is in all likelihood possible that the company is looking up to her expertise to make its future OS look less like iOS.Huawei's strategy has been to launch affordable handsets in emerging markets, combined with increasingly competitive flagship models in western markets.

Video: Black Hole Wakes To Devour StarA sleeping black hole woke up and devoured a passing star that drifted too close to it.An artist's impression of the event shows the star being quickly sucked into the black hole, which then gives off a burst of X-rays.It happened about 3.9 billion light-years from Earth in the direction of the Draco constellation, and was spotted using old high-energy X-ray data from NASA's public archives.The black hole glows, giving off X-rays after devouring its space snackNothing can escape a black hole after falling inside, including light.The study's lead author Erin Kara, from the University of Maryland, said: "Most tidal-disruption events don't emit much in the high-energy X-ray band.The event was first detected in 2011, but the extensive research into the event was concluded and published this week.
The Federal Aviation Administration FAA has finally signed off on the rules regarding commercial drone flights in the U.S., which means companies such as Amazon can begin testing the airborne tech for deliveries and other purposes.Drones and whatever packages they're carrying must weigh less than 55 lbs that's about 25 kg and each drone must have its own pilot.Taking to the skiesThose restrictions particularly the line-of-sight one would seem to put a dampener on Amazon's plans to have delivery drones buzzing all over the country, but the FAA has said companies can apply for waivers if they're able to prove their technology is safe.An online portal for waiver applications is going to be available soon.In its own press release the FAA admits this is only a "first step" in regulating commercial drone flights, but at least companies can now get up and running without breaking the law.Find out why scientists are purposefully crashing dronesGet the lowdown on the OnePlus 3 with our video review:
Originally, the demo – which lets you blast your way through the game's first level – was only supposed to be available while the E3 show was in town last week, but the freebie is still around today.A tweet from Doom's official Twitter account noted: "Due to popular demand, we're extending the DOOM Demo!"Some have suggested that it would make sense to keep it as a permanent fixture, and while that seems like a good idea to us, the fact that Bethesda says it's 'extending' availability would suggest that this is still a temporary thing.So if you've not tried the Doom reboot and want to give it a whirl and see what all the fuss is about, it might be an idea to grab the demo now download it here .In our review of the game, we dubbed it a remarkable achievement, mainly because it manages to capture what's so great about the classic Doom games, while bringing things forward into a contemporary gaming era and managing to avoid feeling old-fashioned.The single player campaign is certainly much running-and-gunning, well-balanced blasting fun, although the multiplayer didn't tickle our fancy quite so much.
And when you go back to what makes us quintessentially human, you realise the power that food has on our culture and mindsets, said Olivia Sibony, co-founder of Grub Club.Creating a platform that enables people to partake in amazing dining experiences which will leave a lasting impression is a fundamental way in which we can connect with our own humanity and become closer to those around us, said Sibony.The event for 100 people came together in just 10 days, including a raffle and auction with prizes donated from Faction Skis, Angel Investment Network and Lesa Green Jewellery.Another champion of this idea, Conflict Café aims to promote peace through dialogue by serving food from countries suffering from violence and conflict.They will soon announce their new dates for September here.Even better: gather your friends and loved ones together for a dinner to celebrate Gay Pride and to raise money for the victims and their families at the GoFundMe page organized by Equality Florida.
Saints Row via OverwatchVolition became known for open-world games with the Saints Row franchise, and Agents of Mayhem is an extension of many of the ideas players love from that series.In many ways, it plays like Saints Row, but trades out those games crazy weapons for crazy characters.You can switch to the other characters whenever you want, mid-battle, and you ll need to do that pretty regularly as each character takes damage.In Saints Row 4, you play the president, who has superpowers, and is fighting an alien invasion.— Multinational Agency for Hunting Evil Masterminds — which is basically an equivalent of Marvel s S.H.I.E.L.D., but with more moral ambiguity.Agents of Mayhem takes place in Seoul, South Korea, instead of Saints Row s usual setting of Stilwater, and is based on one of the possible endings of Gat Out of Hell — an alternate timeline in which the Earth is rebuilt post-alien invasion.
Initially scheduled to launch almost a year ago, the game was then moved to February before settling on a June 21 release date.Citing issues regarding the publishing process on Xbox 360 and a certification bug spotted in the final round of testing, developer Comcept says that game will be delayed by only a few days if all goes according to plan, and that a new build has already been submitted to both publisher Deep Silver and Microsoft for a second round of testing.9 have also been held back, but these are planned for launch very shortly as well.If you have a somewhat-capable PC — given the game s horrid visuals, it shouldn t take much — you ll still be able to play the game while you wait for the Xbox 360 version.Kickstarter backers who chose the 360 as their preferred platform are now being sent Steam keys, though the lack of connectivity between Steam and Xbox 360 means you re going to have to start all over again should you choose to switch to the console.While fans hoped for a true successor to Mega Man, as Capcom has not released information on a true sequel for several years, early impressions suggest something very different.
photographer: Anerdgy A combined solar and wind turbine specially adapted for mounting on buildings launches Swiss Wind Rail System. Wind Rail modules are placed on the roof edge and utilizing the air heated flows upward along a wall. The module then tapers off, the air flow speed increases to double and then passed a wind turbine. The effect of the test facility is 2.5 kW. The technique requires flat roof, and the roof can carry the 250 kg heavy modules. Another requirement is mounting at a height of at least seven meters above the ground.
