The growth in 3-D printing is allowing manufacturers to reduce production time and save money.But the predicted mass production of 3-D printed products for consumers has not yet come to pass.An article in Chemical & Engineering News (C), the weekly newsmagazine of the American Chemical Society, explains how industry is using the technology.Over the past decade, 3-D printing has been portrayed as the next big manufacturing trend, and companies are now starting to take advantage of the technology.For example, as C Senior Correspondent Alexander Tullo reports, Volkswagen has started using 3-D printers for tools and parts, which has saved the company time and hundreds of thousands of dollars.Others are also getting on board, spurring global sales of 3-D printing equipment and related materials to grow to $2.7 billion last year.

Idag släppte Myndigheten för press, radio och tv sin rapport "Medieutvecklingen 2017 – Medieekonomi”.I den framgår det bland annat att annonsinvesteringarna i mediebranschen under 2016 landade på en ny rekordnivå – hela 34,9 miljarder kronor.Det motsvarar en ökning med 6,2 procent jämfört med året innan.Den starka siffran innebär dock inte nödvändigtvis goda nyheter för exempelvis tidningsbranschen.I rapporten framgår det att tillväxten framför allt återfinns i de digitala kanalerna, där techjättar som Google och Facebook dominerar.Annonsintäkterna för dagspress backade med 11 procent – samtidigt som 45 procent av av annonspengarna hamnade i digitala kanaler.

The internal database is being used to keep track of known bugs and vulnerabilities in Microsoft software, including Windows.Several of the bugs to be later used in a hacker attack.Hacking was discovered four years ago, but only now do we know how serious it was.Five former Microsoft employees who Reuters interviewed anonymously can all confirm what happened.Because the database is used to save information about bugs that are not fixed yet, it could be a gold mine for hackers.Anyone got access to the database would for example be able to use this data to carry out attacks before the security holes are fixed.

You’ll soon start seeing self-driving cars being tested on the streets of New York City for the first time, although you might be surprised by the company involved.It’s Cruise Automation, the self-driving car division of General Motors, and the team apparently beat out all other companies that’d applied because it was willing to abide by New York’s tough rules, which were introduced by Governor Andrew Cuomo back in May.GM, though, seems ready to tackle that risk as conditions in New York may help give it an advantage over competitors."Testing in New York will accelerate the timeline to deploying self-driving cars at scale.New York City is one of the most densely populated places in the world and provides new opportunities to expose our software to unusual situations, which means we can improve our software at a much faster rate," said Kyle Vogt, CEO of Cruise Automation, in a prepared statement.New York's rules include the need to insure each of the fully automated Chevy Volts involved in the tests for $5 million and heeding restrictions such as staying away from construction or school zones.

Google today is rolling out a revamped version of its longtime Security Checkup feature – a service that helps users make sure their Google accounts are safe by checking those items that could impact your account’s security.Now, Security Checkup will be improved by offering more personalized suggestions, says Google.Before, the Security Checkup would offer the same, passive checklist for everyone – meaning you’d have to go through each suggestion to make sure your account was safe, even if not all items would have impacted you.With the new version of Security Checkup, the guide is tailored to you with personal recommendations about what to fix.For example, you might be informed that some of the third-party apps connected to your Google account are not secure, and given the option to remove them.Or you may be prompted to remove your account for older devices, or set up additional account verification methods.

It’s a double-decker, superjumbo passenger plane, with four engines and a wingspan greater than two Boeing 737s side by side.When it first started flying in 2007, airports had to upgrade their facilities to deal with it.The plane had to make an emergency landing at a remote military airport in Canada last month.The experience sounds harrowing: As the plane flew over Greenland on its way between Paris and Los Angeles, passengers said they heard a loud bang.The front fan of one of the Airbus' four massive engines had disintegrated.It landed at tiny, remote Goose Bay Airport—a mostly military airfield on the first bit of land the pilots came to.

Apple's Face ID will make its debut on the iPhone X on November 3, and it looks like the new tech may be here to stay.According to KGI Securities analyst and known Apple commentator Ming-Chi Kuo (via MacRumors), all 2018 iPhones will likely have Face ID.Thanks to Apple's TrueDepth camera system, the X gets all sorts of new tricks like Face ID, AR, and (yes) Animojis.This makes facial recognition a standout feature on the phone and also one of the big differences between the X and the more traditional iPhone 8 and 8 Plus.Kuo suggests that iPhones released in 2018 are likely to abandon the fingerprint sensor, which might mean it's the end of the line for Touch ID on the iPhone.Touch ID has been used for certain situations like unlocking your phone or Apple Pay, but if Face ID works as intended, we may see the end of Touch ID (at least in its current form).

No compatible source was found for this media.Samsung CEO Kwon Oh-hyun has announced his resignation from management and will be formally stepping down in March 2018.Kwon has not specified any reason for the shock decision, although he reportedly wrote about an "unprecedented crisis" in the company in an internal letter sent to employees.While he has not elaborated on what the crisis was, it is being speculated that he could have meant the charges against the heir to the Samsung empire, Lee Jae-yong.Lee was found guilty of corruption and sentenced to five years in prison in August.Kwon is reportedly known as "Mr Chip" in the company, and is credited with the growth of Samsung as a chip and memory component maker.

(Reuters) — Samsung Electronics said on Friday its third-quarter operating profit likely nearly tripled from a year earlier to a new record, beating analyst estimates as strong memory chip prices fattened margins.Samsung shares touched a fresh high of 2.74 million won soon after the market opened on Friday, on hopes for record 2017 earnings driven by soaring demand for memory chips with ever greater storage capacity.The rate of supply increase has slowed drastically, while demand has exceeded expectations, rapidly lifting prices,” said Kim Woon-ho, analyst at IBK Investment & Securities.“Although the share price has recently seen steep jumps, it still doesn’t reflect all the forecast profit increases.”Brisk sales of the latest Galaxy Note 8 smartphone, launched in mid-September, lifted mobile profit as Samsung recovered from last year’s costly withdrawal of the fire-prone Note 7 device, analysts said.Samsung is also expected to announce a new shareholder return policy for the next three years as soon as the end of October, when it releases third-quarter results.

Personally, whenever I sign into the Facebook app on any of my devices, the first thing I do is turn off autoplay videos.There’s something about an app doing something I don’t want at any given time that rubs me the wrong way, but others view it as a convenience rather than an annoyance.I can respect that, which is why I can respect Google experimenting with autoplay videos in the YouTube app.Videos automatically play when you scroll through the Home section, though there is no audio.To make up for the lack of sound, subtitles are overlaid to understand what is being said.The first thing to note is that only one video will automatically play at any given time.

E-handeln växer så det knakar, inte minst i möbelbranschen.Succébolag som Royal design och Furniturebox omsätter stora pengar på sina digitala affärer – men även tungviktaren Ikea satsar numera hårt på att få snurr på sin digitala verksamhet.Nu rapporterar sajten Ehandel.se att möbelgiganten förra året omsatte 672 miljoner kronor från näthandel – bara i Sverige.Det är en ökning med 12 procent från förra året.Under fjolåret hade man över 90 miljoner besökare på den svenska sajten, att jämföra med 38 miljoner besökare i samtliga fysiska varuhus under samma period.Det är dock en försvinnande liten andel av hela koncernen som omsatte ungefär 340 miljarder kronor under 2016.

The recent Microsoft Ignite event in September told us a lot about the direction technology is going — and specifically how it will impact marketers.Microsoft emphasized two trends that will have a significant effect on marketers.The first is an effort to make artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning available to the masses.The second is heavier integration between Microsoft and LinkedIn.What do both of these mean for us?We’re getting closer to the holy grail of closed loop marketing, one tech innovation at a time.

It’s one of my 10 favorite releases of 2015.Due to an insane number of incredible games, Star Wars: Battlefront II will have to work a whole lot harder than the original to make my top-10 list this time around.But the beta test (which runs through October 9) reveals that it may have that potential because, like Pinocchio turning into a real boy, Electronic Arts has turned Star Wars: Battlefront II into a substantial game.I’ll say it again: I enjoyed my time with Battlefront.It was a solid playground to bang Star Wars characters together, but that’s all it was.Battlefront II maintains that foundation and builds better progression and mechanics on top of it to make you feel something deeper about your connection with the game and not just the Star Wars universe.

Microsoft has explained how a cascading series of cockups left some of its Northern European Azure customers without access to services for nearly seven hours.On September 29, the sounds of "Sacré bleu!"Virtual Machines, Cloud Services, Azure Backup, App Services and Web Apps, Azure Cache, Azure Monitor, Azure Functions, Time Series Insights, Stream Analytics, HDInsight, Data Factory and Azure Scheduler, and Azure Site Recovery were all titsup.The problems started when one of Microsoft's data centers was carrying out routine maintenance on fire extinguishing systems, and the workmen accidentally set them off.This released fire suppression gas, and triggered a shutdown of the air con to avoid feeding oxygen to any flames and cut the risk of an inferno spreading via conduits.This lack of cooling, though, knackered nearby powered-up machines, bringing down a "storage scale unit."

After joining a major financial company in 2005 as CEO, I set out to build a senior leadership team that would best position the company to achieve results for our shareholders, and best serve our customers (US homebuyers and homeowners).This team was tested rigorously in the years that followed and not only survived the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression in 2008, but successfully re-emerged as a leader in the US mortgage insurance industry.I was simply committed to recruiting the strongest and most capable team.It had not occurred to me until then that my team, which I thought of only as highly capable, was indeed diverse in terms of its demographic makeup.We made other changes to our team, including recruiting one of the most respected and admired people in the entire mortgage industry, boasting a Columbia law degree and experience with top-tier banks and mortgage lenders.As it so happens, this senior executive is a woman and is also African-American.
