Telecoms.com periodically invites expert third parties to share their views on the industry’s most pressing issues.In this piece James Crawshaw, senior analyst with industry research firm Heavy Reading, presents his thoughts on the opportunities for automation in the telecom industry.For me, the three key themes coming from this year’s SDN NFV World congress (9-13 October, The Hague) were automation, automation and automation.The basic concept of automation – the replacement of human activities with mechanized processes – is, of course, well established.Many have spent the last decades wrestling with ways to integrate multiple B/OSS systems inherited through acquisitions or new technology rollouts (e.g.Unfortunately, many of the big-bang style transformation programs have gone massively over budget, taken far longer to complete than initially planned and ultimately delivered less impressive results than hoped for.

This is by no means a bad video game—and effort was absolutely poured into making its RPG elements feel more substantial than last time—but the LEGO bricks of this game's combat, exploration, themes, and South Park-caliber script were all put in the wrong order.Tactical shift... for the worseSouth Park: The Fractured but Whole opens with a lingering battle from the last game in which warring factions face off in Tolkien-styled combat, but it doesn't take long for the neighborhood kids to shrug off their swords and wizard hats.Thus, the game picks up on the TV series' boys-playing-superheroes conceit—which existed well before Stick of Truth came out, mind you—so that Cartman can find a lost kitty and get a $100 reward.This schism arose, if you're wondering, because the boys couldn't agree on whose superheroes would be first to receive their own feature-length films or Netflix series.You have to wander around the town of South Park, which looks exactly like the cardboard cut-out TV show, and complete a variety of quests (primary and side) while getting into turn-based battles.

I'd suddenly and dramatically increased my credibility, and I was invited to speak at events (and get paid for it).Even better, I generated more leads for my business interests.And few things says "expert" quite like publishing a book on the topic you focus on in your professional life.I worked with a traditional publisher, and while I'm grateful for that support, I learned some important lessons about the publishing industry.Many first-time authors are surprised to discover that although publishers don't help market your book, they still take the vast majority of earned revenue.Who better to learn from than Chandler Bolt, founder of Self-Publishing School?

Wednesday morning, Stat published a piece on the quaint, old-school pharmacy that hand-delivers prescription medications to our hardworking Congress members on the Hill each day.While the piece was focused on the history and workings of the pharmacy, the Internet zeroed in on one eye-popping section:Mike Kim, the reserved pharmacist-turned-owner of the pharmacy, said he has gotten used to knowing the most sensitive details about some of the most famous people in Washington.“At first it’s cool, and then you realize, I’m filling some drugs that are for some pretty serious health problems as well.And these are the people that are running the country,” Kim said, listing treatments for conditions like diabetes and Alzheimer’s.“It makes you kind of sit back and say, ‘Wow, they’re making the highest laws of the land and they might not even remember what happened yesterday.’”

Much of HTC’s phone business now belongs to Google, however, the Taiwanese manufacturers decided to stick to its VR headset division which has probably been busy creating a new VR Headset.This speculation stems from the fact that HTC registered a trademark in New Zealand for a product which is believed to be a VR headset.This product called “Vive Eclipse” is believed to be a VR headset because excerpts of the product description in the registration file states “head-mounted display for computer simulated reality“.As of now, nothing is known about Vive Eclipse, not even a render image or an idea of its specs is available but more will be unveiled in the next few weeks.

It’s common knowledge that Hollywood isn’t a fan of Rotten Tomatoes.While the review aggregate site has been around for almost two decades, it’s become increasingly influential over the last few years, leading several prominent actors, directors, and producers to speak out against it.The latest being Martin Scorsese, who seems to hate everything about the website, even its name.In an op-ed piece in the Hollywood Reporter, the Oscar-winning director of Casino, Goodfellas, and The Wolf of Wall Street said sites like Rotten Tomatoes and Cinemascore “set a tone that is hostile to filmmakers,” adding that “even the actual name Rotten Tomatoes is insulting.”Producer/director Brett Ratner is another industry name to have famously attacked Rotten Tomatoes, calling it “the destruction of our business” earlier this year.Scorsese’s verdict was just as damning: "They rate a picture the way you’d rate a horse at the racetrack, a restaurant in a Zagat’s guide, or a household appliance in Consumer Reports," he wrote.

The data-stealing malware has been advertised in a number of hacking forums since early 2016.Security researchers have discovered a new data-stealing malware called FormBook that has been targeting aerospace companies, defense contractors and some manufacturing firms in the US and South Korea over the past few months.Researchers at FireEye said hackers have been using various methods to distribute the malicious payload via email campaigns in the US including malware-laced PDF, DOC or XLS attachments.FormBook is a type of data-stealing and form-grabbing malware that has been advertised in a number of hacking forums since early 2016 that works on "all versions of Windows".It can also execute commands from a command and control server including instructing the malware to download and execute additional files, start processes, shutdown and reboot the infected system as well as steal cookies and local passwords."One of the malware's most interesting features is that it reads Windows' ntdll.dll module from disk into memory, and calls its exported functions directly, rendering user-mode hooking and API monitoring mechanisms ineffective," FireEye researchers said in a blog post.

Forza Motorsport 7 has drawn criticism since debuting earlier this week for an in-game economy that seems to put a throttle on your progression to encourage you to buy loot boxes.Forza developer Turn 10 Studios has not flipped the switch to enable players to purchase those crates with real money yet, but all the hooks are already in the game.Those include cosmetic items, but not for your vehicles — instead, this is the first Forza to put an emphasis on your driver.But Turn 10 has always let people go wild decorating their Subarus and Hondas and sharing those decal designs with one another.“It felt distant for me, as a fan,” he said.Pick a character that represents you and let the fantasy play out from there.”
