Amazon Web Services has opened a store that will allow customers to purchase additional software-as-a-service products and pay with their monthly AWS bill.The cloud giant says that the AWS Marketplace Vendors program will let cloud customers buy the additional services as needed, paying for time or data used rather than as a recurring cost.Those products are then billed to the customer as part of their monthly AWS account charge, with Amazon passing the balance for the SaaS services over to the developer.AWS did not say whether it would take a cut of the revenues as a service charge."The new SaaS solutions run on AWS infrastructure and you will pay only for the service that you consume, with no monthly fees or subscription costs," wrote AWS evangelist Jeff Barr."For example, you can buy security services on a per-host basis, log processing on a per-GB-ingested basis, geocoding on a per-request basis, or caching on a per-GB-cached basis.

"Retail, as we know it today, is dead."That s according to Thoryn Stephens, former chief digital officer at American Apparel.And he should know; his ex-employer just filed for bankruptcy."There's no shortage of data, there's no shortage of technology but there's a shortage of stakeholders who know how to use said data and technology," Stephens told the audience at WIRED Retail 2016 in London.With Google Analytics, Google AdWords and Salesforce he had a huge amount of data on his customers, but when he looked at traditional retailers he noticed very few were taking advantage of all this information.Fast-forward to today and stores still have electric lights, clothes and mannequins.

Hitachi might not be known for its image-capture technology, but a new press release details the workings of a lensless camera technology the company is working on that s capable of focusing the image after it s already been captured.The details in the press release are rather verbose, but in its simplest form, Hitachi s camera uses a specialized piece of film in front of the image sensor to direct the light onto the sensor in a particular pattern.The information captured by the sensor is then used to reconstruct the image with the help of specialized algorithms.Since depth information is captured in addition to overall exposure, Hitachi says the technology allows the image to be refocused after capture, similar to how Lytro s light field cameras work, albeit at a much smaller level.It s safe to assume the quality of the image won t be nearly as impressive as those captured with traditional cameras.But Hitachi s goal isn t to replace traditional cameras.

There's only a day to go until the mysterious OnePlus 3T is officially unveiled, but if you simply can't wait, this new teaser image might tide you over until tommorrow.Coming via the company's verified Weibo page a Chinese social media site , according to PhoneArena, the image seems to be a legitimate teaser poster for the upcoming handset – though we're not entirely certain.A sketch of the phone is shown standing in front of a mirror we're not sure why either – something to do with 'being a better me" according to the tagline with a backplate that looks very similar to the existing OnePlus 3 and a 'T' clearly visible in the reflection.The Weibo post in question also seemed to confirm some of the rumoured specs, listing a Snapdragon 821 chip as part of the device's hardware setup.OnePlus has confirmed that the upcoming phone will use a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor, which should provide the upgraded version of the OnePlus 3 with a significant performance boost.Another recent rumour suggests the phone will arrive with a massive 8GB of RAM, which seems like an unnecessary amount – the rumour is unconfirmed, however.

Fortunately, the holidays are just around the corner.To ensure that the season will be enjoyable not just for you but for your friends as well, Microsoft has rolled out its 2016 Holiday Update for the Xbox platform, both on the Xbox One and as well as the Xbox apps.And like many of the updates these past months, this one puts a lot of weight on the social aspects of gaming, like forming Clubs and Looking For Groups, whether on the console or on the PC.Clubs are really just a fancy name for more persistent groups, in contrast to ad hoc, goal-oriented ones which we ll see later.And just like any other club, you gather around common interests, throw Xbox parties, chat with one another, and, of course, play games together.As Clubs are usually formed around specific titles, those that are associated with such games will have their names listed in the game s Game Hub.

En väldigt bra anledning att uppdatera.Med IOS 10.2 ökar Apple sitt säkerhetstänk.Enligt en ny rapport är nämligen säkerhetskopior gjorda i Itunes mycket svårare att hacka.Det tar drygt 1000 gånger mer kraft att hacka ett lösenord från en IOS 10.2-kopia jämfört med en från IOS 10.1, menar säkerhetsexperterna på IMazing.Resultatet ska ha uppnåtts genom uppdaterade krypteringsverktyg som tidigare mer eller mindre varit samma sedan IOS 4.Läs också: Nya emoji, bakgrundsbilder och effekter – nyheterna i IOS 10.2

Putting limits on your brainstorming may seem counterproductive, but it actually helps you get your ideas flowing.The Japanese game of shiritori is an easy way to guide your brainstorming session, whether you re looking for ideas for a new project, book, or physical product.The basic idea behind shiritori is that you start with a word and then come up with another word that starts with the letter the first word ends with.Tweak this to apply to brainstorming by thinking of ideas as well as the next word.As toy developer Shimpei Takahashi explains in his TED Talk above, let s say you start with the word cat .In his case, he designs toys, so what would a cat themed toy look like?

The great thing about smartphones is that you can charge any of them over USB with whatever cable came in the box.The vast majority of high-end Android smartphones nowadays support either Quick Charge 3.0 or 2.0.Quick Charge 3.0 devices are backwards compatible with the slightly slower 2.0 spec, so at this point, we d recommend future-proofing and buying 3.0 chargers, even if your current phone doesn t support it.USB-C is a remarkable little port that can handle a ton of power, and heretofore unheard of amounts of data, all through a tiny, reversible connector.For example, the Google Pixel smartphone can charge at up to 18W, the 12" Apple MacBook charges at 29W, and the 13" and 15" MacBook Pros charge at 61W and 87W respectively.Wall chargers generally fare better, though we haven t seen any third party chargers as powerful as Apple s MacBook Pro charging bricks.
