It may be the most significant move toward modernization that the format has taken since the first digital backs, but it stays true to Hasselblad’s heart and soul of fine craftsmanship and excellent image quality.This isn’t to imply that standard digital medium-format cameras are going away — far from it, as you’ll read in our Hasselblad X1D-50c review — but users of such cameras now have an option that’s easier to take with them on location, and both portrait and landscape photographers have reason to be excited about it.A rubber gasket encircling the battery itself allows the camera to be environmentally sealed despite the lack of a battery door.In particular, a focus point selector would have been very welcome.Overall, these issues were minor and intermittent, but were enough to pull us out of the shooting experience when they occurred.That extra surface area means each pixel is larger, helping to gather more light and improve resolution, high ISO performance, and dynamic range.

Något förenklat kan det sägas att världens engelsktalande länder helst väljer Iphone före Android-mobiler, medan länder där modersmålet är något annat än engelska föredrar Android.Uppgifterna presenteras i rapporten ”The Mobile Web Intelligence Report", som släpptes under föregående vecka av Device Atlas, rapporterat via Appleinsider.I länder som Kanada, Australien, Storbritannien och USA är IOS betydligt vanligare än Android, medan länder som Malaysia, Nigeria, Polen, Ryssland och Brasilien har precis det omvända förhållandet.Se bilden nedan, där ljusblått är Android och mörkblått är IOS.Apple erkänner mikrofonbugg i Iphone 7 – det här kan du göra åt sakenMen det finns också två undantag på listan.

360 Mobile just released an interesting teaser about the upcoming 360 N7.The smartphone is indeed set to come with AI, albeit by listening to the company claims, the N7 will be smarter than that.Let’s have a closer look!Translating the Chinese poster literally we read that: “The essence of intelligence, not AI, think of what you think, is the future, together with the recall of pure carefree”.This basically means the smartphone will be so smart that it’ll think for you, potentially bringing an ultra smooth user experience.According to previous leaks, the 360 N7 is expected to come with a mid-range MediaTek Helio P60 processor, which is based on a 12nm manufacturing process and is composed of a Cortex A73x4+Cortex A53x4 clocked at 2.0GHz, meanwhile the GPU is a Mali-G72 MP3.

Nikola's decision to accept orders for its hydrogen fuel cell trucks without a deposit might be seen as foolish from a cash flow perspective, but it also means companies can throw around big orders with little financial skin in the game.Anheuser-Busch and Nikola announced today that the potent-potable giant has placed an order for 800 hydrogen fuel cell trucks.It's part of A-B's desire to move its fleet entirely to renewable energy by 2025.In that same time period, it hopes to reduce its per-beverage carbon footprint by 25 percent.Those orders require $20,000 deposits per truck, so it makes sense that A-B's Tesla order would be much smaller.Nikola announced in April that it would no longer require deposits, and that it would refund those who already put deposits down.

Another set of solid results for Apple, despite fears over weak demand for expensive iPhone XApple has posted impressive second quarter results that have allayed market fears that its principle cash cow, namely the iPhone, was slowing down.There had been concern that Apple would be negatively impacted by slow sales of its iPhone X, but the firm sold 52.2 million iPhones in the three months to March, up from 51 million a year earlier – only just missing Wall Street expectations of 52.3 million.The expensive iPhone X had analysts worried about long term demand amid a global smartphone slowdown, especially considering its initial lukewarm reviews.But Apple said that the iPhone X was the best-selling model in every week of the quarter – despite costing almost $1,000 or £1,000.For the quarter ending 31 March, Apple posted a net profit of $13.8bn (£10.1bn), up from last year’s $11bn (£8.1bn).

Microsoft’s offer to upgrade Windows 7 or Windows 8 to Windows 10 for free for users who need assistive technologies was supposed to run out at the end of 2017, and despite a loophole being open for a while, Microsoft has closed it.The assistive technologies upgrade was meant for anyone who was going to use Windows 10’s accessibility features, and there was no verification process involved, so anyone was able to upgrade using this method (dubious moral issues aside).Unfortunately it seems the other method of upgrading to windows 10 – using an existing Windows 7/8.1 product key to activate the installation of the new OS – has also been deactivated at the time of this writing.Ultimately, Microsoft probably wasn’t too worried about closing these loopholes for a while, because having more Windows 10 users is obviously nothing but a good thing for the company.Some of the best laptops out there run Windows 10

Representative democracies rely on people being able to participate in free and fair elections.A large turnout is good for everyone, including the successful candidates who have a stronger mandate upon which to make decisions.But this time around, in some parts of the country, an additional barrier has been put in place which risks locking out legitimate voters: mandatory voter ID.This is being trialled in Bromley, Watford, Woking, Swindon and Gosport – meaning anyone wishing to vote will have to first prove they are who they say they are by providing a particular document (for a full list of requirements in each area see here.)“When voter identification was introduced in Canada for federal elections, the independent body responsible for conducting elections, Elections Canada, found that (in the seven by-elections held after the new rules were introduced) 4% of voters said they could not vote because they didn’t have the right ID.Just one of these allegations resulted in a prosecution – out of nearly 45 million votes cast in total throughout 2017 (i.e.

The research and development of 5G technology have gotten to advanced stages and the likes of Huawei and MediaTek are expecting their 5G devices to go commercial next year.Now, Chinese manufacturer, ZTE is ready to pull some strings with respect to 5G development.The fate of ZTE remains in a balance after the sanctions imposed by the United States, the consequences for the company are unpredictable.This stringent punishment also sparked the faster development of domestic self-developed chips.ZTE stated that it will continue to increase R investment in core chips and other products and strive to become a pioneer in 5G.To support this ambitious goal, ZTE decided to invest at least twice as much on 5G R than it did last year.

I framtiden kan Apple, Google, Amazon, Expedia och många andra företag som på olika sätt förmedlar andra produkter och tjänster på nätet få betydligt striktare regler att följa i EU.Ett nytt lagförslag skulle, om det klubbas igenom i EU-parlamentet och medlemsländerna, införa en rad nya regleringar av branschen, rapporterar Reuters.För det första skulle företagen vara tvungna att redogöra för hur de rankar sökresultat och varför vissa kunders produkter eller tjänster har tagits bort.Företag som använder dessa plattformar får också en ny möjlighet att gemensamt stämma företagen bakom om de anser att företagen har brutit mot regler om diskriminering och transparens.För mindre konflikter skulle ett nytt obligatoriskt system med medlare införas, vars kostnad delas av plattformarna och kunderna.Till sist skulle företag bakom plattformar bli tvungna att förklara i sina användaravtal hur deras egna produkter särbehandlas jämfört med andra företags produkter.

The Home Office set targets for voluntary departures of illegal immigrants, according to a 2015 watchdog report, in contradiction to testimony given yesterday by Amber Rudd.Speaking to the Home Affairs Select Committee, the Home Secretary said “we don’t have targets for removals” adding “that’s not how we operate”.But a 2015 inspection report shows a target of 12,000 voluntary departures in 2015/16 was set by the department.The issue had previously been raised by Labour’s Yvette Cooper who said a response she received from the Home Office was a “complete fudge answer”.This is a complete fudge answer to my question on whether the Home Office has targets for immigration removals after the contradictory evidence from the ISU & the Home Secretary at @CommonsHomeAffs today.Tomorrow I will be writing to the Home Secretary to get a proper answer pic.twitter.com/Xv1qYpkvuT

Burger King and its agencies are always looking for creative, attention-grabbing ways of highlighting that the chain’s burgers are flame grilled rather than the flat griddle used by most competitors.In the newest print campaign, from creative agency David Miami, Burger King features photos of mansions formerly owned by McDonald’s executives, with the point being that each one owned a patio grill (assuming the outdoor layout hasn’t changed much since they owned the homes).“Flame grilling is hard to resist,” notes the copy positioned alongside each grill.It’s a bit more subtle than David Miami’s much-awarded “Burning Stores” campaign, which showed the flaming husks of actual Burger King locations, with the tagline “Flame grilled since 1954.” But for those who appreciate some good marketing jabs between competitors, the new campaign is a good example of how to punch up without going the Full Wendy.The new ads will run in the South Florida Sun Times, Hamburg (Iowa) Reporter, Palestine (Texas) Herald-Press, Laguna Beach Independent, Chicago Sun Times and New York Daily News.The agency hasn’t clarified why those specific outlets were chosen.

Some companies, like Philips Hue, focus primarily on light bulbs, while others focus on smart switches.Caseta plays nice with just about everyone — Apple HomeKit, Nest, Wink, IFTTT, Amazon Alexa, Google Home, Alarm.com, and home automation platforms like Savant and Control 4.Caseta is one of our favorite lighting systems, but depending on which kit you go with, can be expensive.There are several Lutron Caseta starter kits out there, but you will want to go with one that includes the Lutron Bridge, which is required for the system to work.You can then build on the system from there by adding more switches.Once installed, the wall plate sticks out from our basic cover plate, although it’s not just Lutron’s switches that do this.
