First reported by Kara Swisher, our sources are also telling us that former General Electric CEO Jeff Immelt is still being seriously considered and the board vote is expected to happen soon.The talks were first reported several weeks ago.Co-founder and CEO Travis Kalanick was asked to resign in June, following the completion of an investigation into the company’s culture.A lawsuit with Waymo and accusations of a sexist company culture are partly what led to his departure.But Kalanick still remains on the board and has the power to appoint two more board seats, which has become the subject of a lawsuit with early investor, Benchmark Capital.Benchmark wants Kalanick off the board because it believes that he didn’t disclose material information about the legal and ethical problems at the company.

Those long-shot outcomes are so rare, though, that as the Kauffman Foundation found in a 2012 report titled “We Have Met The Enemy… And He Is Us”, the average VC fund in their survey failed to return even investor capital, after taking fees.This “growth at all costs” mentality has led lots of startups to forsake reliable unit economics, or real business models that could get them on a path to sustainable growth and long-term profitability, for the sake of meeting the required user metrics required for their next round of funding.Put another way: Picture a steady, stable company that is growing predictably and focused on unit economics to achieve profitability but is not reaching 5x, 10x, or 20x annual growth rates.That company is going to get a lot of pressure from investors if it’s not poised to attract a buyer within five to seven years or to go public within 10.But steady, stable, profitable companies are good for our economy — and are great for the founders that start them and the investors that choose to back them.Making things worse, alternatives to equity have become scarcer for many young companies.

Spotify has removed several white supremacist bands from its service, following recent events at Charlottesville in America.Earlier this week, a music news website published a list of 37 "white power" bands which were being streamed online.Less than 48 hours later, Spotify announced they had removed some of the bands from its service in America.The Swedish company says it is also considering taking down the other named artists on the list.Some of the artists named by Digital Music News are still available for streaming in the UK.A spokesperson for Spotify in the UK tells Newsbeat "any takedowns they [Spotify] issue are effective for all markets, not just a specific country."

Now, after Charlottesville, Viriginia, some of the far-right movement’s most infamous personalities are getting kicked off.Off Uber, Google and PayPal – in one case, kicked off the web entirely – as tech companies rush to condemn last weekend’s violent white nationalist marches and penalise those who condoned them.“I haven’t seen them take this much action on all these platforms, ever,” said Keegan Hankes of the Southern Poverty Law Centre, which has long accused tech companies of tolerating hate speech.The Daily Stormer, an infamous white supremacist website, has endured server-related humiliations from its online landlords in the past few days.The site’s Web host, GoDaddy, evicted it last weekend, after the site published an article disparaging a woman who was killed while protesting the “Unite the Right” rally.By Monday, the Verge reported, the site had retreated to the “dark Web”, forced to publish its white supremacist screeds through anonymous platforms that most people never see.

This includes Intel and Under Armour this week – both having left a manufacturing council made for Trump.UPDATE: Amid a bleeding set of councils (see below), Trump suggested this afternoon that he was “ending” said councils.His Tweet read as follows: “Rather than putting pressure on the businesspeople of the Manufacturing Council & Strategy & Policy Forum, I am ending both.Thank you all!” The rest of this article remains as it was before this update.Trump’s Twitter outburst about Frazier’s exit generated many negative comments on open forums like Twitter, thus creating a bit of a paradox in the chart you’ll see below.As Business Insider mentions, the algorithm Brandwatch uses cant decipher context, and so finds outrage on behalf of Merck’s CEO just as “negative” as negative comments toward the company.

For the first time ever, Ethereum yesterday had more than 400,000 transactions, a record for any public blockchain, and around 40,000 higher than Bitcoin’s record day.The high transaction volumes haven’t caused much movement in Ether prices though, which have been pretty stable at around $300 over the last week (yes, there have been swings of +- $20, but that’s within the usual volatility in crypto).This time seems to be an exception, though, and there are a few possible reasons for this.Second, the constant influx of new Ethereum-based ICOs is affecting the price, with people sending their ETH to these projects.Finally, on top of this, you have the usual market manipulation, known as “whale games,” with the big players keeping the prices down.Even though prices aren’t increasing much yet, the transaction numbers means the network is being used.

Ända sedan hifins barndom har en stereo bestått av en eller flera signalkällor, en förstärkare och ett högtalarpar.Övergången från passiva högtalare till aktiva har pågått i inspelningsstudior och scenutrustning i många år och nu för tiden dominerar de aktiva monitorerna den professionella världen.En aktiv högtalare skiljer sig som sagt från sina passiva släktingar genom att förstärkaren är inbyggd.I äkta aktiva högtalare siter det nämligen en förstärkare till varje högtalarelement, och uppdelningen till bas, diskant och eventuellt mellanregister görs också på aktivt sätt.En av förutsättningarna för att högtalarna nu – och inte förrän nu – tagit steget till att bli aktiva, är den så kallade Moores lag, alltså konstaterandet att elektroniska kretsars komplexitet och processorkraft fördubblas var 18:e månad.Den första av Jans många fjädrar i hatten var BeoLab 5, som var hans sista studieprojekt.

Qualcomm announced a new Spectra camera technology that could enable smartphones to capture three-dimensional images and movement in real-time and convert that data on the fly into digital form.The Qualcomm Spectra module will have improved biometric authentication and high-resolution depth sensing.That could be useful in a wide range of photo, video recording, and virtual reality applications.It’s a fundamental technology that could ultimately lead to much better gadgets.The camera module uses Spectra image signal processors (ISPs).And it means that we’ll see smartphones and other devices hitting the market that will have the ability to sense a 3D environment and turn it into something that a computer can understand.

After all, Sonic games in recent years have been a bit hit or a miss, so it might be hard to know why this one should stick out.Sonic games like this don’t come around very oftenEver since the arrival of the Sega Dreamcast, many Sonic games have been fully 3D affairs.Sega was content to let 2D Sonic live on through handheld releases for many years, up until the launch of Sonic Generations back in 2011.Though Sonic Generations pleased a lot of fans with its 2D stages, Sega merely considered it to be a one-off type game that was released in celebration of the series’ 20th anniversary.As a result, 2D gameplay hasn’t appeared in many mainline Sonic games since then, so to be receiving Sonic Mania in all of its 2D glory is a rare treat.

Amazon is issuing refunds for those who’ve purchased possibly fake solar eclipse glasses on the site in anticipation of this summer’s big solar eclipse event.A lot of folks have been gearing up for the event that will — depending on where you are — either totally block out the sun or partially block it as the eclipse moves across the North American hemisphere on August 21st.Many of these same people have turned to the ease of Amazon for ordering the protective eyewear needed to look directly up at the sky while the solar phenomenon passes overhead.However, Amazon has not been able to verify all of the glasses on its site have come from reputable manufacturers and, as first reported in the Verge, has now sent out a safety warning, telling customers not to use the questionable eyewear.We want customers to buy with confidence anytime they make a purchase on Amazon.com and eclipse glasses sold on Amazon.com are required to comply with the relevant ISO standard.”Reports of safety issues have been going on for a couple of months.

Apparently Leagoo are going all in once again in their marketing department and will be sponsoring a new football team from the English Premiere League.Sponsoring smartphone brands in sport events isn’t new to Chinese manufacturer, in the past we’ve seen VIVO working with NBA and FIFA, Nubia sponsoring Cristiano Ronald and Huawei partnering with Messi.Leagoo isn’t even new to working with football teams and they’ve already done it in 2016.Now Leagoo’s CEO – Mr. Johnson – has announced on the company’s forum that they’ll be giving a surprise to both Leagoo and football fans.At the same times rumors of a possible launch of a new device in London have spread, but it seems as that could be a side note to the official announcement of partnership with a Premiere League club.Between the rumored football teams involved we have the Manchester United, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur, definitely top ranked teams.

By joining Google, IBM, Microsoft, Red Hat and just about every company that matters in the space, AWS has acknowledged that when it comes to container management, standards matter.When you’re that big and powerful, and control vast swaths of market share as AWS does, you can afford to go your own way from time to time.That belongs to Kubernetes, the open source container management tool originally developed inside Google.AWS was smart enough to recognize that Kubernetes is becoming an industry standard in itself, and that when it comes to build versus buy versus going open source, AWS wisely recognized that battle has been fought and won.Sometimes it’s better to switch than fight, and this was clearly one of those times.What we have now is a clearer path to containerization, a technology that is all the rage inside large companies — for many good reasons.

Mobile operator Three has launched a legal challenge against Ofcom's rules over the upcoming multibillion-pound radio spectrum auction.Last month Ofcom – the UK's comms regulator – decided to cap the maximum amount of mobile spectrum a British company can own at 37 per cent in its forthcoming auction, rather than the 30 per cent Three had called for in order to level the playing field.A spokesman for UK operator Three confirmed the business will seek a judicial review before the UK courts in relation to the competition measures that will apply in the upcoming spectrum auction.“We anticipate a short process and a court decision by early 2018.Ofcom does not expect commercial 5G services in the UK before 2020, so this short process will not impact the availability of 5G to UK consumers."Later this year, the regulator intends to flog licences to use 19 MHz of spectrum in two frequency bands, increasing the airwaves available for mobile devices by almost one-third.

According to a patent filing, the largest brick-and-mortar retailer in the world (likely looking for ways to compete with Amazon) is developing a technology that can identify whether customers are unhappy or frustrated.It will likely use existing security and checkout cameras to read the faces.Of course, all of those wonderful innovations will save us time and could even save lives (a car can swerve out of the way faster when a computer takes control than any young driver can).Why do I think this will be an episode of Superstore soon?Glenn, the store manager on the show (played by Kids in the Hall alumnus Mark McKinney, above right), is a little unhinged already.One day, a package arrives in his office from the corporate overlords — it’s a new webcam to install at the checkout lane.
