Vicks launched its TouchOfCare campaign in India, challenging the viewers to redefine what a family means in today’s society while reaffirming the importance of care.The campaign was created by Publicis Singapore, with the story told in the first person by an orphan Gayatri.The film captures how Gauri, a transgender woman, cared for Gayatri on her own against all odds, reflecting the challenges Gauri faces from society.As the definition of family changes across India, away from traditional norms, the idea of family now goes beyond biological connections or a surname.The Vicks brand has stood for family care in India and has adopted this progressive stance – that care is the ultimate definition of what a family is.“Vicks has always been about the gentle touch of a mother’s care, as she caresses and gives relief to her child.
Men i väntan på 5g utlovar vd:n Börje Ekholm lönsamhet under 2018.”Står man med byxorna nere får man börja med att dra upp dem”.Det sa Börje Ekholm, vd för Ericsson, till Ny Teknik förra hösten.Det Ekholm kanske inte förstod då var att byxorna bara hunnit till knäna.På en rad bland många andra - trots att den borde vara skriven i röda versaler - skriver Ericsson i ett pressmeddelande att de tvingas göra avsättningar mellan 7 och 9 miljarder kronor.Lägg därtill omstruktureringskostnader på mellan 6-8 miljarder kronor i år, alltså mer än dubbelt så mycket som tidigare aviserats (låt vara att det beror på att omstruktureringen ska ske snabbare än tidigare beräknat).
At least 2,000 digital staff are needed within the next five years, and probably far more – and the private sector won’t be any help, the NAO warnsThe government’s planning to provide itself with specialised skills isn’t keeping pace with the scale of the challenges that lie ahead, including the delivery of ever-more ambitious digital projects, requiring a more “urgent” response, according to the National Audit Office (NAO).The NAO’s “Capability in the Civil Service” report found that in addition to scarce project planning, benefits realisation and contract management skills, government departments say they will need an additional 2,000 digital staff within five years, at an annual cost of between £145 and £245 million.However, the Government Digital Service (GDS) and the Infrastructure and Projects Authority (IPA) believe the short-term digital skills shortage may be much greater, the study found.The changing expectations of both citizens and civil servants are putting pressure on government to deliver ever-more ambitious digital projects, but the skills needed to do so may be difficult to find – even from the private sector.“Citizens’ experiences as consumers have led them to expect public services to be more individualised, and available digitally; they also expect to be kept up-to-date on progress,” the report found.
The successful launch of the Nintendo Switch earlier this month is already creating retail shortages and steep markups on the secondary market.Now, major retailer GameStop says it expects those kinds of shortages and nearly instant sell-through of shipments to last throughout 2017 in its more than 7,000 retail stores."The demand is incredibly strong for this [Switch] column," GameStop COO Tony Bartel said in an earnings call yesterday evening.We anticipate that we're going to be chasing supply this entire year."CEO Paul Raines said elsewhere in the call that the retailer's initial shipment of Switch systems sold out in two days and that "multiple replenishments since the launch... have sold out in hours."Beyond the system itself, though, Raines noted that the average Switch buyer at GameStop also bought 5.5 related products (including both Switch games and accessories) along with the system.
Events There are just seven days left until we close the call for papers for M3, and we would really love to hear how you’re putting artificial intelligence, machine learning and predictive analytics to work in business.We’re just as interested in how the technology is finding its way into traditional organisations and augmenting or even over-turning established ways of doing business as we are are in what hyperscale operators and cutting edge academics are achieving.Whether you’re targeting the world’s population, or just the robots on your production line, we’re really interested in how you’re tackling the ethical and societal issues AI and robotics are inevitably going to throw up.If you've got experience of putting the popular open source libraries and tools to work in business or the public sector, we'd love for you to show others how you did it.Similarly, if you've built software tools from the ground up and are running them across specialised hardware, we know our attendees are going to be fascinated.After all, if your fellow developers, engineers, architects and CIOs aren't already getting projects up and running, we suspect many of them will to be starting to experiment very soon.
IOS 10 släpptes i höstas och de stora nyheterna var imponerande: Bilder fick ansiktsigenkänning med artificiell intelligens, Meddelanden blev sprängfullt av emoji, och Siri fick stöd för tredjepartsappar.Men IOS 10 är spännande även av andra, betydligt mindre och näst intill undangömda, nyheter.Här är 14 av de mest okända funktionerna.IOS 10 kan använda din Iphones olika sensorer för att känna av när du har parkerat bilen och börjat gå.Du slipper bländas om du tänder ficklampan mitt i natten.Det enda kruxet är att det kräver 3d Touch och i dagsläget fungerar del alltså bara på Iphone 6S och Iphone 7.
För drygt en månad sedan rapporterade den brittiska affärstidningen Financial Times att Soundcloud - som kan beskrivas som ett Youtube för ljud - är i kris.Två tunga chefer hade då precis lämnat bygget, samtidigt som bolaget uppgavs vara i ekonomisk kris."Soundcloud bönar och ber om pengar, men jag skulle inte ge dem några just nu.De måste tänka om vad gäller värderingen och nöja sig med en nedåtrunda (till lägre värdering)", sade en investerare, som bett om att få vara anonym, till Financial Times då.Nu rapporterar Business Insider att bolaget fått in välbehövligt kapital i form av ett lån på 70 miljoner dollar, motsvarande cirka 600 miljoner kronor.Enligt handlingar på brittiska motsvarigheten till Bolagsverket kommer pengarna från Kreos Capital och Davidson Technology Growth Debt Fund.
The United Nations annual World Happiness Report has named Norway as the world's happiest nation – jumping up from fourth place last year.This year, Norway pipped fellow Scandinavians in Denmark to the title and, while doing so, leapfrogged Iceland and Switzerland.Despite a tempered political climate in the UK, fuelled by Brexit and talks of the Union breaking up, the country also moved up the report's ranking.The report is produced by creating average scores based on six areas for each country: income, life expectancy, social support, generosity, freedom, and trust.Of the top four, the authors say they are "clustered so tightly that the differences among them are not statistically significant".The report continues to say that due to the country's decision to produce oil slowly and invest money in its future, it has succeeded in "insulating itself from the boom and bust cycle of many other resource-rich economies".
Qualcomm Inc. is introducing a new product designed to bring faster wireless service to basic, lower-priced cellphones in emerging markets, an attempt to bolster the chip giant’s reach among consumers who can’t afford smartphones.The new product, which starts shipping in the second quarter, includes a processor along with other hardware and software that will enable so-called feature phones to take advantage of today’s faster wireless networks, the company said.The new offering—designed for phones to be sold in markets...
What would you do if you were a billionaire?Elon Musk is trying to get to Mars.Peter Thiel wants to live forever.And Jeff Bezos, well, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos apparently wants to rule the world in a gigantic robot.At least that’s the impression you might get from the photos and video taken yesterday.Last night at Amazon’s annual robotics conference Jeff Bezos slipped into something a bit more comfortable—a 13-foot tall robot designed by Korean company Hankook Mirae Technology.
Earlier in the week, an IndieGoGo campaign for a product called Nimuno Loops launched.Basically LEGO tape – an adhesive strip you can stick anywhere and attach LEGO to – it seems like a marvellous idea for fans of the colourful blocks.With a modest IndieGoGo budget of $8,000 (around £6,400), the team behind Nimuno Loops obviously weren't expecting a massive amount of interest.Just five days into the campaign, it has raised $1.2 million and counting.That's a mindblowing 15,054% of its initial goal.Whoa, people really, truly need LEGO tape in their lives, it would seem.
Netflix is finally going to ditch its confusing star-based rating system, replacing it with a new thumbs-up/thumbs-down alternative.For years, Netflix has offered viewers the opportunity to rate TV shows and movies using a five-star system.What many viewers don’t realise is that these ratings are based on how much Netflix thinks you’ll like the show, rather than an overall score based on user ratings.In a bid to fix that – and some other kinks in the star system – Netflix has confirmed that starting next month, the five-star scoring will be killed off entirely.Speaking to press during a briefing yesterday, Netflix VP of Product Innovation Todd Yellin described how using stars to rate content was a relic from the past (via The Verge):“Five stars feels very yesterday now.

Seems like Vernee are fully commited to bring some cutting edge stuff with their devices and the latest information is hinting at the OXI desktop experience system could be coming built-in the latest Vernee Apollo X model.So what is this OXI again ?It was developed for Android to provide a new desktop-like experiece for your phone or tablet with multi-window mode possibility.That really shines when you can cast the screen to an external display while still keeping the full screen mode on your mobile device.So it feels like the Microsoft’s Continuum idea, except it’s for the Android.With current mobiles being more powerful than the desktop computers just few years ago, such move makes sense and we can just applaud for trying.Join GizChina on TelegramVernee has apparently formed a deep cooperation with auxens, the OXI developers and they are planning to integrate the OXI into all the higher end Vernee models.
And far be it for me to argue that every Apple product needs to be updated every year, but the iPad, well, the iPad has struggled a bit over the last few years, and it could use a jumpstart.So, assuming that new iPads are coming down the pipeline—and the consensus seems to be that they’ll arrive sooner rather than later—what can we expect?But it’s still not clear what distinguishes a pro iPad: Apple Pencil compatibility?Even the current models don’t have parity, with the 9.7-inch boasting several features that the 12.9-inch model lacks, like a wide color gamut, True Tone display, better cameras, and broader LTE support.I expect to see a revision to both Pro tablets that brings the specs a little closer together.In general, Apple offers more in bigger, costlier models, not less—just look at the Plus series of iPhones.
It’s easy to be cynical when companies say things like “2017 is our year of digitalization” and “our ambition is to be the most digital aviation group”.Three innovations stand out particularly: Lufthansa’s FlyingLab, an inflight digital conference and tech testing experience; the use of immersive 3D mapping, and the use of 360 video/virtual reality to drive sales and upgrades.This allows the airline to run an inflight conference with the keynote speakers streamed live to passengers’ personal devices – laptop, tablet or smartphone.They listen through the headphones and the mobile device has a split screen showing the video of the speaker in one part and the presentation slides on the other.On the first FlyingLab to San Jose last year, we tested the Samsung Gear VR and Neuroon, a sleep mask that monitors your brain waves and pulse and recommends when you should sleep and how much to sleep you require.This is a video headset that projects images [from a smartphone, laptop or game console] directly onto retina in your eyes.
Single hybrid array replaces 8 disk boxesA hybrid flash/disk array is replacing several disk arrays at a UK college and shows the way mainstream disk array replacement is heading towards flash for primary data applications.Bolton College in the UK has replaced eight Dell EqualLogic disk arrays used for databases, virtualised servers and virtual desktop environments with a single Tegile T3630 hybrid array.Because flash arrays are so much faster, the college has found a 57 per cent reduction in its storage requirements, falling from 43TB to 19TB.The eight EqualLogic PS Series iSCSI arrays stored 43TB of data and the first ones were acquired in 2010.By 2016 they were supporting 450 VMware Horizon View virtual desktops and a VMware environment supporting some 12,000 students and 500 staff with their application, database and file storage needs.
