toimitusjohtajan Rajeev Surin mukaan toisen neljänneksen vahvan kannattavuuden taustalla on Nokia Technologies -liiketoiminnan erinomainen suoritus sekä verkkoliiketoiminnan vahvat bruttokateprosentit ja entisestään parantunut liikevaihto.”Vuosineljänneksellä tekemämme hyvän työn johdosta suhtaudun yhä luottavaisesti siihen, että saavutamme verkkoliiketoiminnassamme koko vuoden ohjeistuksemme mukaisen 8-10 %:n liikevoittoprosentin”, Suri sanoo tiedotteessa.

Written by: Tito Hamze, John MannesI don’t know what to wear on Crunch Report (It’s a hard decision and I suck at dressing myself).If you are a startup and want to me to wear something mail me an XL T-shirt and I’ll wear it in an episode.I’m not going to mention the company on the shirt in the episode but it will be there.No offensive stuff, it’s totally at my discretion if I wear it.

Google has confirmed that it is trialling videos that automatically start playing when they appear in its search results.The test comes at a time when its rival Apple is preparing to make it easier to prevent videos from self-starting within its web browser.Facebook has also faced criticism for recently automatically turning on sound for auto-play videos on its platform.One expert said the feature could be a fresh money-spinner for Google.The BBC understands, however, that Google will reveal more about its plans on Thursday.The videos appear on the right-hand side of results and appear to be limited to queries involving films at this time.

Google’s parent sees lower profit after being slapped with record Europe Union fineGoogle’s parent Alphabet has suffered a setback to its recent strong fiscal performance after it revealed a decline in second quarter net profits.Until now Google had been delivering stunning growth in both profits and revenues, helped by its principle cash cow, namely the advertising market, but also other ventures including its growing cloud business and revenue from its hardware (i.e Pixel smartphone) and Google Play Store.But in the last quarter (June to be exact) Google was slapped with a record-breaking fine of 2.4 billion euros (£2.1bn) by the European Commission for abusing its monopoly on Internet searches within the European Union.This fine has notably impacted Google’s second quarter financial performance, after Alphabet for the month ending 30 June, posted a net profit down at $3.5bn (£2.7bn) from $4.9bn (£3.7bn) in the same year-ago quarter.The profit would have been much larger had it not been for the EC penalty.

Tropical Depression Greg appears as a ghostly swirl of low clouds on satellite imagery from NOAA's GOES-West satellite on July 27.NOAA's GOES-West satellite captured an infrared image of Greg on July 26 at 11 a.m. EDT (1500 UTC).The image showed that Greg's circulation consists of a tight swirl of low clouds with a few small patches of deep convection.Strong vertical wind shear is affecting Greg now, pushing the clouds away from the center of circulation.The National Hurricane Center (NHC) noted at 11 a.m. EDT (1500 UTC), the center of Tropical Depression Greg was located near 18.1 degrees north latitude and 141.0 degrees west longitude.It was about 965 miles (1,550 km) east of South Point, Hawaii.

E-handelsbolaget Fyndiq (NTL), som har kallats "nätets Ullared", bytte förra året strategi från snabb expansion i utlandet till lönsam tillväxt här hemma i Sverige.I samband med detta fick bolaget även återlämna 100 miljoner kronor i riskkapital som var öronmärkt för utlandsexpansion och en dryg fjärdedel av personalen fick lämna bolaget.Läs mer: Fyndiqs vinstpanik – ger tillbaka 100 Mkr i riskkapitalÅtgärderna gav resultat i räkenskaperna och på hösten kunde bolaget berätta att de gick med vinst på månadsbasis.Läs mer: Efter sparpaketet: Fyndiq visar svarta siffrorMen någon vinst på helårsbasis är det än så länge inte tal om, visar bolagets årsredovisning för 2016.

In Japan, where the elderly population has been swelling for the past two decades, that shift has led to an alarming trend on the road.Recent data from the country's National Police Agency show that 13% of traffic deaths (459 fatalities) were caused by a driver 75 years and older in 2016.The first is that the rate of traffic fatalities overall has actually been going down — the 2016 figure was a 67-year low for Japan.But the other is that Japan's elderly population keeps growing, which means more older drivers are on the road.At least 10 years ago, Japanese banks started offering higher interest rates to seniors who gave up their drivers' licenses.Department stores started offering free delivery to senior customers.

G Suite business users: go and check your configuration, and make sure you're not publishing enterprise information to the whole world.That's the warning coming from security outfit Redlock, which says it found “hundreds” of organisations leaking both organisational data and employees' personal data.As the company's advisory explains, it's a single radio-button setting that people are getting wrong: in G Suite Groups for Business's Advanced Settings, they're publishing groups to the Internet instead of keeping them private to the organisation.The company says the IBM-owned Weather Company, Intellicast, and Fusion Media Group were among those it spotted with misconfigured G Suite settings.Cloud misconfiguration seems to be the new black: last week, Dow Jones leaked customer information via an AWS S3 bucket, imitating a similar feat from Verizon.Indian company Tata leaked customers' code on GitHub in June, and in a gold-medal performance, Sweden's Department of Transport leaked its entire vehicle registration database last year – including secret identities such as those of its special forces.

Early in the Season 2 premiere of Insecure, Issa Rae’s HBO comedy about black thirtysomethings who live and love recklessly in Los Angeles, Molly (Yvonne Orji) discovers her co-worker has been getting paid more than her.Upon first seeing the check, she radiates with a smile that cuts from cheek to cheek, but soon realizes it was a mailroom mishap; the check was for her white male colleague.On most shows, the chance to interrogate the wage gap would make it the B plot, if not the episode’s centerpiece—but Rae and her adept writer’s room choose not to dwell on the moment for too long.There, issues perch at the center of the show, with its characters circling in orbit, each one bringing their own baggage to the table.But Insecure is a different kind of comedic outfit: it tackles issues by not, by refusing to tether an entire episode to one Very Special Moment, the way Blackish has increasingly done.Here, the moments come and go, and come again.

A few months ago, Razer made the surprising move of buying Nextbit, a small company that had just entered the market with a cloud-oriented phone.If it wasn’t already clear then that Razer intended to make a smartphone, a report by Bloomberg corroborates the suspicion.According to “people familiar with the matter,” the company is shooting for a $3-5 billion valuation on a Hong Kong IPO in order to help fund the smartphone.This theoretical device would be aimed at Razer’s hardcore gaming audience, whatever that means.I, for one, would be curious to see a Razer phone.The company has been excelling in the gaming laptop market, arguably making the only such devices that also work just as well in an office or school environment.

You are very lucky that you ended up about the size that you are today, somewhere between one and ten feet tall and weighing somewhere between one and one thousand pounds.This is a very good size.Not to body shame, but if you were, say, a quadrillion times shorter and weighed a nonillion times less (that’s one followed by 30 zeros), that would be very inconvenient for you.One thing you take for granted as a human-sized thing, for example, is that when you push things, they move forwards.But a team of researchers realised that this is not necessarily the case if you zoom into the quantum world, where particles might decide to go backwards, no matter what kind of outside force you put on them.That’s demonstrated by a quintessential experiment: If you shoot particles individually through parallel pairs of slits, they appear like dots on the wall behind them.

Defend your smartphone from voice impersonators gaining access to your bank account.It's a lot easier to talk to a smartphone than to try to type instructions on its keyboard.This is particularly true when a person is trying to log in to a device or a system: Few people would choose to type a long, complex secure password if the alternative were to just say a few words and be authenticated with their voice.The most common methods for securing voice-based authentication involve only ensuring that analysis of a spoken passphrase is not tampered with; they securely store the passphrase and the authorised user's voiceprint in an encrypted database.Fortunately, there are automatic speaker verification systems that can detect human imitation.Conventional speakers contain magnets, which vibrate back and forth according to fluctuations of electrical or digital signals, converting them into sound waves in the air.

Vi har i korthet summerat några av de mest intressanta svaren nedan.De som vill ta del av hela frågestunden kan besöka Reddit.Google anser att det är för svårt att implementera en fullskalig temamotor som är tillräckligt pålitlig och konsekvent.Utvecklarna skriver att det saknas ett API för att beskriva exakt vad som kan ändras med tema och att kontrastproblem lätt uppstår.Pålitligheten för ljud över Bluetooth har ”förbättrats drastiskt” i och med Android 8, enligt Google.Förbättringarna är dock inte tillgängliga i senaste förhandsversionen, annat än internt.

Capable of reaching speeds of around 40 mph miles per hour, regular drones are not exactly dawdlers.But when you are dealing with specially designed racing drones, things are on another level — and the Drone Racing League has the Guinness World Record to prove it!In a record set last week, the Drone Racing League achieved a new drone speed record of 163.5 mph.While we’ve seen some fast drones before, the Drone Racing League’s DRL RacerX is almost mind-bogglingly fast for a battery-powered remote quadcopter.To put it in perspective, it is not quite on a level with the world’s absolute fastest sports cars, but it is certainly going to outrun pretty much every vehicle you see on the road.Hey, one-fifth the speed of sound is not exactly bad!
