p Galaxy S8... upcoming Note 8... and now, two Galaxy J phones.Samsung's Galaxy J5 (2017) and Galaxy J7 (2017) phones appeared on a an official website for its "Kids Mode" app, spotted by SamMobile.The site's in Korean, but the phone names in English are clear, and still live on the site at the time of writing (along with the J7 Pop and J7 Max).The only thing is, Samsung has yet to announce either of these two phones.The Galaxy J series is Samsung's take on super affordable Android smartphones.While superpremium devices suck up a lot more attention, lower-end phones are important for phonemakers like Nokia and Motorola, and yes, Samsung too, to make their names in emerging markets and other places where low prices matter.

It must be summer in London at last.Time to stroll through Hyde Park, stop for a drink at one of the capital’s countless drinking establishments… and then risk death by melting, by stepping on to an unbearably warm Tube.So as any Londoner will tell you, this means that it can get really, really hot.A couple of years ago our pals at the excellent CityMetric assessed the below map, which was released by TfL.It shows the tunnelled part of the Tube network, coloured by how warm it gets.But today, thanks to a freedom of information request we’ve got the actual data - and more recent, up-to-date, data on tube temperatures.
p POLL The self-described “Veteran Unix Admin collective” that in 2014 promised to give the world a cut of Debian without systemd has delivered: Devuan 1.0.0 LTS hit the web today.The collective's objections to systemd were rooted in the belief that its inclusion in Debian created “a lock in systemd dependencies which is de-facto threatening freedom of development and has serious consequences for Debian, its upstream and its downstream.”So they forked it, initially suggesting they'd get the job done some time in 2015.A beta eventually emerged in April 2016, followed by a second beta in November 2016 and two release candidates in April and May of 2017.Today the Collective mailed its followers to announce that: “There have been no significant bug reports since Devuan Jessie RC2 was announced only three weeks ago and the list of release critical bugs is now empty.So finally Devuan Jessie Stable is ready for release!”
If you’re Steve McQueen, you can race around it in an orange dune buggy.And, if you’re Gérard Philipe, in “Une Si Jolie Petite Plage” (1949), the saddest of all beach films, you can mooch along the strand, in the rain, with a face like rolling thunder.The television series started in 1989 and, after a hiccup, ran for most of the following decade, earning “a wider audience on the planet Earth than any other entertainment show in history,” according to a Times report, in 1995.There were three attempts to promote the show from the small screen to the big, including “Baywatch: Hawaiian Wedding” (2003), whose plot is anyone’s guess, but, tragically, all three swam straight to video.Kelly Rohrbach steps into the part of C. J. Parker, Mitch’s thoughtful sidekick, although Pamela Anderson, in the eyes of some experts, has never truly vacated it.“Baywatch” certainly skirts that risk, as when Matt listens to his pals at lunch and remarks, “Everything you guys are talking about sounds like an entertaining but far-fetched TV show.” The sight of C.J.

However, with the amount of technological progress taking shape on a daily basis, this is actually one of the fastest moving fields out.Yes, the safety industry is about to get a major facelift with innovative technologies at the forefront.If you’ve been keeping up with any of the major technological changes in the past couple years, many of these applications are directly applied to the safety industry.Sectors like AI, Machine Learning, E-Learning, and Wearable Tech are quickly adapting to the shifting field, setting an example for the rest of the tech world to what’s up next.And luckily for you, we’ve compiled a list of how these changes are making an impact.As so many folks feel as though the majority of our factories are going to replace humans with robots much sooner than expected, the AI/Machine Learning revolution is hitting the industrial sector with full force.
p Its wallet-busting price means the BeoSound Shape certainly isn’t for everyone, but if you’re looking for a speaker system that’s as much a decoration for your home as it is a source of music, then the BeoSound Shape looks to be a great way of achieving both without much compromise.Contained within the muted Scandinavian colors are a number of different tile types.You can expand the system up to a maximum of 44 speakers (a configuration that requires 11 amps), but with a basic four speaker setup retailing for £3,400 (around $4,400 or AU$5,900) we suspect only commercial spaces will get anywhere near this size of setup.Although it contains four speakers, the minimum setup actually contains a total of eight tiles.The speakers themselves - which contain one 13.3cm woofer and 1.9cm tweeter - are joined by one amplifier, one core (housing the setups connectivity ports), one dampener, and one empty tile.We like that this upgradable core means that the setup can stick around for a good number of years, because the BeoSound Shape appears to have an involved installation process.

p Apple and Nokia officially buried the hatchet on Tuesday.In a joint statement, the two companies announced they have settled all patent disputes and agreed new terms that should see them work together harmoniously for many years to come.Under the new agreement, Nokia will provide network infrastructure products and services to Apple.Apple, for its part, will resume selling Nokia Health products, formerly sold under the Withings brand, in its stores around the world.Better still, the two are set to work together on new digital health initiatives.Apple pulled all Withings products from its stores in December 2016 and accused Nokia of "using the tactics of a patent troll," when the Finnish company announced it was suing the California tech giant over 32 phone patents.
p After three intense days of activity, Google I/O has wrapped for the year.The answer is a resounding yes.So we put together a short walkthrough video to give you a feel for what it’s like to be on the ground at the Shoreline Amphitheatre at the Mountain View Googleplex.But what that video won’t show is the blazing sun, the energy and excitement of the attendees and the sense of community that permeates the entire space.Chief among the issues with last year’s I/O was the question of seating.There was insufficient seating at sessions, no overflow spaces, and no reserved places.
p IHS recently reported that there will be 76 million autonomous cars on the roads by 2035 and that self driving cars will be ready for deployment in cities by 2022.IHS recently reported that there will be 76 million autonomous cars on the roads by 2035 and that self driving cars will be ready for deployment in cities by 2022.UK consumers believe that there will be more autonomous cars than traditional cars within the next two decades, according to a new report.The new survey by OpenText, found that 66% of 2,000 UK consumers believe that autonomous vehicles will become the normal method of transport within 15 years.Mark Bridger, vice president of sales, Northern Europe, OpenText, said: “We are on the cusp of self-driving cars becoming a reality and, in the next couple of years, the automotive industry will be transformed beyond recognition.Driverless cars’ onboard sensors generate vast amount of data.
Google AMP is bad news for how the web is built, it's bad news for publishers of credible online content, and it's bad news for consumers of that content.It's time for developers to wake up and, as Jason Scott once said of Facebook, stop: "Shoveling down the sh*t sherbet" Google is now serving with AMP.Announced in 2015, duly open sourced and integrated into Google’s mobile search, Google has pitched AMP as a way to speed the mobile web.It employs something the ads slinger calls AMP HTML that the firm describes as a “new open framework built entirely out of existing web technologies.”What it is, is a way for Google to obfuscate your website, usurp your content and remove any lingering notions of personal credibility from the web.And if you don't, consider yourself not part of the future of search results.

p In 1925, when astronomer Nancy Grace Roman was born, "The Great Gatsby" had just been published, the Scopes Monkey Trial was about to begin, and outer space was still a giant mystery waiting to be explored.But Roman, who turned 92 on Tuesday, showed an interest in the stars from an early age, and became the first chief of astronomy in the Office of Space Science at NASA headquarters and the first woman to hold an executive position at NASA."Throughout her career, Dr. Roman has been a spokesperson and advocate of women in the sciences," NASA notes on its site.Roman is one of the five women honored with her own Lego figurine in the forthcoming Women of NASA set, approved by Lego in February.The other four are Katherine Johnson, one of the scientists featured in the film "Hidden Figures," computer scientist Margaret Hamilton, astronaut Sally Ride and astronaut Mae Jemison.(Release date and price have not yet been revealed for the figures.)
p Over the last few years messaging apps have developed from SMS-like services with a few extra features into platforms that are almost like internet portals.Kakao, LINE and — most notably — WeChat are examples where users can buy products, read news, pay money or more inside the app.Over in the U.S. market, however, iMessage is the dominant messaging service and, while Apple has taken steps to advance the sophistication of its service, it seriously lags its Asian competitors when it comes to being a platform.The iMessage App Store, introduced just over six months ago, was seen as a way to level the field, but it hasn’t panned out how Apple may have expected.That’s where a new startup — Loji — is aiming to make a difference.Loji, which is competing in the Battlefield competition at TechCrunch Disrupt New York, wants to bring much-used information and snippets of the web into iMessage conversations without forcing users to leave the app.

p So I do marketing for my small company.FB Ads, e-blasts, some retargeting (though we've stopped retargeting because the returns didn't justify the cost).This morning, I watch a Reddit video on my iPad (in the Reddit app) about a women who patrols the Barcelona subway for pickpockets.Then I launch the NYTimes app to see today's news and the first ad is for pickpocket-proof clothing.How do I prevent it?
