We got to try Nintendo's forthcoming console, the Nintendo Switch, today—playing seven different games, holding the new Joy-Con controllers in roughly five different ways.Our first real experience with the Switch and its new Joy-Con controllers might as well start with the goofy-looking fighting game Nintendo unveiled during their presentation out of Tokyo last night, called Arms.The Nintendo staffer manning one of the Arms booths let us play around with the Switch first.Sliding the Switch into and out of its dock immediately transfers gameplay between the TV screen and the Switch's 6.2-inch screen, which displays at a 1280x720 resolution.Hitting a release button on the Joy-Con controllers—each labeled with a "plus" or "minus" sign to indicate the face-button-adorned controller, or the d-pad one, respectively—lets you slide the Joy-Cons into either the Switch itself, the Grip controller where the two are joined into one form, or into their individual straps.Arms is played holding two Joy-Con controllers, one for each hand, with the face of the controllers in your palms and your thumbs on the ZL and ZR triggers.
Watch the new trailer; this game looks completely off the chain.Now for the details, which came out almost too fast to register in the first 15 minutes of the presentation.The console comes with 32 GB of space inside, but you can also slot in a Micro SD card, something that many gamers will appreciate.You can play while charging, of course; it hooks up via a USB Type-C connector in the dock or a cable.Up to 8 Switches can be connected for local multiplayer.The Joy-Cons have a screenshot button and shoulder buttons, and also include motion sensors like Wii remotes.

The expanding universe of big data brings in more opportunities for ventures to thrive, yet more risks inevitably follow, too.To escape the complexities, some companies decide to ignore the topic, in general, underestimating the importance of data science, big data analysis and business intelligence services for their marketing activities.For good or bad, big data is not a fad that will disappear anytime soon.Over time, this trend will only peak, thus adopting it faster means getting an access to its advantages earlier.Sometimes the wording is rather foggy, like Big data helps you to transform raw information into a valuable resource .Accurate pricingMcKinsey states that a 1 percent price increase results in an 8.7 percent increase in operating profits.They also estimate that up to 30 percent of yearly pricing decisions actually fail to deliver the best price, which leads to an extensive amount of lost revenue.As the art of pricing is critical to business success, nowadays it s impossible to only rely on trial and error or gut feeling.

Steve Jobs presenterar den första Iphonen.Dyr och tekniskt undermålig, enligt experterna.Men den första Iphone, lanserad för tio år sedan i dag, kom ändå att bli startskottet för en helt ny teknikera, skriver Ny Tekniks Kalle Wiklund.Jobs beskrev Apples första telefon som en slags magisk tre-i-ett-pryl: En bredbilds-Ipod med pekkontroller, en revolutionerade mobiltelefon och en banbrytande enhet för internetkommunikation.Den första Iphonemodellen möttes med skepsis från många inom telekombranschen.Den uppfyllde inte en enda teknisk specifikation, menade teamet.

Every year, technological titans and scrappy startups alike descend on Las Vegas to show off the amazing products they ve been quietly toiling away on all year – and offer consumers a glimpse at the future.There s something new lurking around every corner at CES, the annual consumer electronics show in Las Vegas, and with 32 football fields worth of show floor, there are a lot of corners.We re proud to say we turned them all to bring you the most comprehensive coverage you ll find anywhere.Rather, BlackBerry has partnered with TCL to release Android phones under the BlackBerry brand name.The latest device, revealed behind closed doors at CES 2017, doesn t have a name yet, so we ll rely on its internet code name — which BlackBerry suggested — of Mercury.2016 was a year of innovation for Facebook, and to celebrate, the company has named some of its favorite projects and products that came from its hackathons at its offices around the world during the year.
Samsung has announced a massive profit surge for the last quarter of this financial year, which is odd when you consider that 2016 was also the year its flagship phone the Galaxy Note 7 was recalled after it started exploding.The Galaxy Note 7 hit headlines this year after a major fault caused many handsets to overheat and catch fire.Eduardo Munoz / Reuters This is Apple s best iPhone ever, and if we re honest it s one of their most innovative devices yet.It has an incredible camera, is water-resistant and boasts a stunning bright new display.Of course it can t escape the rumours surrounding next year s device but if you re looking to buy a smartphone right now, and Apple are on your radar, this is the phone for you.It s not cheap though, with the XL costing over £800.
Super thin 4K TVs are proving popular at CES 2017 in Las Vegas, and Chinese electronics manufacturer Xiaomi is showing off one of its own at its first ever CES press conference.The Mi TV 4 is thin to say the least; measuring only 4.9 mm at its thinnest point, Xiaomi say it s thinner than the iPhone.Just like the company s highly anticipated Mi Mix smartphone, the Mi TV 4 has virtually no bezels making this TV a whole lot of screen.The TV runs Xiaomi s own Patch Wall software, a skin on Android, which apparently uses AI to make intelligent recommendations for the next thing you should watch.The recommendations are based on things you ve watched already, but the system draws its suggestions from a vast library of content rather than just one streaming service.An interesting feature of the Mi TV 4 is its modularity, something that was first introduced in the Mi V 3.

Shenzhen-based Tencent is banking on its acquisition last year of a controlling interest in Finnish mobile game developer Supercell to push its initiatives worldwide.Tencent Holdings and NetEase are looking to ratchet up their international mobile gaming expansion plans this year, using two very different strategies, to reinforce their position as China s two largest video game providers.Shenzhen-based Tencent is banking on its acquisition last year of a controlling interest in Finnish mobile game developer Supercell to push its initiatives worldwide, while Beijing-headquartered NetEase is expecting to attract a global audience with its in-house developed portfolio of titles across a variety of genres.The importance of quality game content is becoming more pronounced ... as players tastes become more demanding, research analysts at Nomura said in a report last month.Apart from being Nomura s top picks in China s video game industry, Tencent and NetEase were also the two largest Chinese game companies by revenue in the third quarter of last year.Internet giant Tencent, which also operates popular social messaging platforms QQ and WeChat, generated total revenue of 40.39 billion yuan HK$45.09 billion in the three months to September 30, including 18.17 billion yuan from its online and mobile games business.
And now the battle for urban housing affordability rages on these streets.The effects on inequality, mobility, and the demographic composition of cities are very real, their causes multifold, and the solutions difficult.Experts reading into president-elect Donald Trump s proposed tax and housing policies—including his appointment of Ben Carson to lead the Department of Housing and Urban Development—see little hope that the federal government will help reverse this course next year.In 2016, the capital required to sign a lease on the average-priced $3,500-a-month apartment in San Francisco often topped $12,000, thanks owing to requirements for first and last months rent plus security deposits and a broker fee.Housing issues are a product of economic growth in the city bumping up against strict zoning constraints, that s what leads to the unaffordability problem, says David Shulman, Senior Economist at UCLA s Anderson School of Management.The opposition to change drives the price of the existing housing supply up—which homeowners love—and ripples into the rental market.
