Quietly flying under the radar in the fitness wearables market is Whoop, a manufacturer of high-end wrist-worn straps that measure data 100 times per second.In what could turn out to be one of the more bizarre licensing agreements ever, the startup struck a deal with the NFL Players Association today that will make it possible for players to sell their health data.At its most basic level, the agreement paves the way for Whoop to sell licensed player-designed wristbands for its $500 Whoop Strap 2.o but that’s the least interesting part.The players who decide to participate in the program will own all of the health data that Whoop collects and the NFLPA sees this as another monetizable part of the game.“Every day, NFL players produce data that can translate into physiological and financial opportunities.We see partnering with WHOOP as the first step in harnessing this exciting technology,” Ahmad Nassar, President of NFL Players Inc. said in a statement.
The Sony Xperia XA1 will be available in the United States starting on May 1, but ahead of that launch date comes preorders through a couple online retailers.The Xperia XA1 will be offered in a few colors — white, black, pink and gold — and will be sold unlocked for use at any supported carrier.This handset features an edge-to-edge 5-inch display, a fairly substantial 23-megapixel rear camera, and (much) more.If you’ve used any of Sony’s recent Xperia handsets, you’ll have a good idea about the XA1’s design.Aside from the rectangular shape, the XA1 has very slim bezels thanks to its edge-to-edge 720p edge-to-edge 5-inch display, which itself is coupled with Image Enhance Technology.Under the hood lies a MediaTek helio P20 octa-core 64-bit processor and 3GB of RAM.
Akavan puheenjohtaja Sture Fjäder suunnittelee ensi viikolle kokousta, johon osallistuisivat Akavan ohella SAK, Kaupanalan esimiesliitto KEY sekä Ylemmät toimihenkilöt YTN.Kokouksen tarkoituksena on käydä läpi KEYn ilmoitusta olla tukematta kaupan alan ylempien toimihenkilöiden lakkoa, jonka on määrä alkaa vapun jälkeisellä viikolla.Fjäderin mukaan kyseessä on normaali toimenpide kun jotain tällaista sattuu, eikä siihen liity suurempaa dramatiikkaa, vaikka toteaakin KEYn tiedotteen olleen räikeä ylilyönti.”Yritämme nyt vain hoitaa asiat fiksusti, että KEY ymmärtää, että eivät he noin voi toimia, koska se on kaikkia työmarkkinapelisääntöjen vastaista”, Fjäder toteaa Talouselämälle.Ei toisen tilannetta hankaloiteta omilla toimilla, mikä tarkoittaa esimerkiksi lakkotilanteessa sitä, että tehdään sitä työtä mitä työsopimuksessa lukee.”SAK:n puheenjohtaja Jarkko Elorannan mukaan keskustelua on käyty, mutta varsinaista kokousta ei vielä ole lyöty lukkoon.
“A good day is when no one shows up…and you don’t have to go anywhere,” says Burt’s Bees co-founder and namesake Burt Shavitz in the 2013 documentary Burt’s Buzz.This statement is a fairly good window into the life and times of the photojournalist turned beekeeper turned brand ambassador.Shavitz died in 2015 – and even though CPG giant Cloroxbought his eponymous personal care company for $925m in 2007, the Burt of Burt’s Bees – and his “quiet, uncomplicated life in nature” – remains core to the brand’s identity, too.And that’s why Burt’s Nature: A 360-Degree Tour is enabling virtual visits to Shavitz’s cabin in Parkman, Maine.It was relocated to the company’s headquarters in Durham, North Carolina in December 2016.To bring virtual visitors to Shavitz’s homestead, Burt’s Bees worked with Google and creative agencies Baldwin & and MediaMonks to create an on-site digital viewfinder that immerses visitors in the sights and sounds of rural Maine.
Hela 635 miljoner kronor har Energimyndigheten stoppat in i svenska cleantech-bolag under de senaste åren.I dag har man 84 bolag i sin portfölj, varav 71 fortfarande är verksamma.”Vi jobbar nästan som ett VC-bolag, men finanserar med lån och bidrag”, säger Andreas Stubelius, med titeln portföljutvecklare på affärsutvecklingsavdelningen, som är en del av Energimyndigheten.De är initiativtagare till Energimyndighetens nya cleantech-hubbar, varav en av dem invigdes i San Francisco i veckan.De andra två är i Shanghai och London.”Klimatministern och vice statsministern Isabella Lövin klippte banden för hubben i San Francisco och pratade om vilken påverkan de här innovationerna kan ha på miljön”, säger Andreas Stubelius.
Last week, a smirking, overeager guy in a Burger King polo and hat appeared on TV and managed to hijack countless Google Home speakers in a matter of seconds."You're watching a 15-second Burger King ad, which is unfortunately not enough time to explain all the fresh ingredients in the Whopper sandwich.They're hoping to take advantage of a rare new channel for ads that sits in the home and can speak directly to millions of Google Home and Amazon Echo owners."All our clients sense something's going on," said Jason Hartley, head of search and paid social at advertising firm 360i."Ideas are bubbling underneath the surface, but we are in a gimmicky phase until we discover more utility for how users are using these devices."Early adopters of smart home devices like the Home and Echo tend to be tech-focused and wealthier, a highly desirable audience for brands.
When you’re just starting out as a streamer, making money on Twitch can be kind of difficult.As it is, you pretty much need to rely on donations from viewers to make any cash until you grow your viewer base large enough to be admitted into Twitch’s partner program.That’s all about to change, with Twitch introducing a new system to allow even up-and-coming streamers to generate income while using the platform.At launch, there won’t be much for non-partnered streamers, only support for donations via bits.At launch, cheering is the only thing the Twitch Affiliate Program will allow, but as time goes on, Twitch will continue to add support for affiliates.For instance, eventually Twitch will allows users to pay $5 per month to subscribe to affiliates as if they were partnered streamers.
Code Vein is a new action RPG from Bandai Namco that appears to be a mixture of God Eater and Dark Souls with an anime coat of paint.Coming to home consoles across North America, Japan and Europe in 2018, Code Vein is developed by God Eater veterans Keita Iizuka and Hiroshi Yoshimura alongside much of the same team behind the cult series.“In the not too distant future, a mysterious disaster has brought collapse to the world, as we know it.Towering skyscrapers, once symbols of prosperity, are now lifeless graves of humanity’s past pierced by the Thorns of Judgment.At the centre of the destruction lies a hidden society of Revenants called Vein.This final stronghold is where the remaining few fight to survive, blessed with Gifts of power in exchange for their memories and a thirst for blood.
American Servicenow, which is easiest described as a service platform in the cloud, is at the hefty rise, both globally as well as in the Nordic countries.As we wrote earlier, got the former Ebay ceo John Donahoe in as the new ceo, and Swedish Daniel Österbergh has been picked out from the EMC as a channel manager in the Emearegionen.

Not everyone can afford a life guru.That’s why Shine created a free daily messaging service to make well-being more accessible.The Brooklyn-based startup announced today that it has secured $2.5 million in a round co-led by Betaworks and Eniac Ventures.According to cofounders Naomi Hirabayashi and Marah Lidey, text messaging has an open rate of 98 percent, which is why they initially chose to capitalize on this medium.Some skeptics might have a hard time believing in this approach in an age of social media and fleeting apps — but the cofounders are confident.“Function over feature is more important,” said Lidey, in an interview with VentureBeat.Shine initially started with just SMS, but it has now expanded to include Facebook Messenger and Kik.The Shine bot collects and analyzes custom inputs to offer users personalized content, all around their well-being.

Though we’ve seen the internet revolutionize hundreds of industries since its birth, cable TV has been something that has stayed largely the same since it was originally monetized.Over the last couple of years however, a number of players have attempted to change the way we watch TV not by replacing broadcast television altogether, but by creating streaming services that give consumers access to both broadcast TV and pre-recorded series and movies.This was evident even when streaming first began a couple of years ago, and players like Roku and Hulu swept in to fill the void consumers so badly craved.Now, Google is looking into get into the game by offering (select) consumers instant access to live television as well as a select list of TV shows and movies for a monthly cost of $34.99.Having access to your favorite live and recorded content anywhere you want is absolutely fantastic, since it can be viewed anywhere as long as you are signed into your Google account.After all, many Smart TVs on the market today already include YouTube integration, and so a simple update to these apps would make it possible for folks to use YouTube TV without having to rely on casting from their phone.
With the growth of social media platforms continuing and more and more people sharing their every day lives, IMP Media took a step back 300 years to show that the phenomenon is nothing new.During SXSW in Austin Texas, IMP Media recreated a gold lions head that was originally unveiled by Joseph Addison in 1713 in a London coffee shop asking people to contribute to his daily paper, The Guardian.Just like modern day media, the coffee houses were plagued with reports of fake news.Addison asked that only 'wholesome and substantial food' would be fed to the lion, meaning he only wanted truthful news to report.IMP Media co-founder, Tony Cuthbertson said Addison Addison was eager to find and print truthful life stories"It is really significant in the history of news because the lion was the first time people could contribute directly into stories that then found themselves in print and the newspapers," he told The Drum.

Our readers have bought thousands of OxyLED’s T02 stick-anywhere LED night lights over the years, and now they come in sizes to fit any cabinet, closet, and hallway.But like any family, each individual light has its own quirks.Less than 4" long, the T-02 Mini runs on two AAA batteries, does not have an on/off switch, includes six LEDs, and mounts with a magnetic strip.The standard T-02 is just a larger version of the Mini, utilizing 10 LED bulbs, and requiring four batteries instead of two.My favorite light of the bunch, the T-02U is the same physical size as the T-02, but with twice as many LEDs arranged in a 2x10 array, a USB-rechargeable battery, an on/off/auto switch, and optional screw mounts.The T-02S is the oddball of the family.
Vertex Ventures China invests in high-growth internet and technology start-ups across mainland China and provides funding support and value-add services to portfolio companies in their growth stage.With Mobike launching in Singapore, it’s first market outside of China, we thought we’d take a look at how we at Vertex Ventures China ended up embarking on this bicycle ride.In 2014, we had our annual Vertex network conference.That year, it was in California, the golden state.Despite being the tech capital of the world, where cement, bits, and technocracy supposedly rule, San Francisco and the Silicon Valley stretch across endless green.Since it was our first time there, we thought we’d take a bike ride from San Francisco to Sausalito, we’d heard recommendations about its wine country, and figured what more romantic or scenic a way than to go by bike.Our Beijing and Shanghai natives, who grew up in China’s era of bicycle empire, were titillated.What we really wanted was to pick up a bike wherever we were and drop it off at our destination.When we returned to China after this trip, we hunted for a bike sharing site.Public transit, cars, and motorbikes slowly killed the need and wont of having a bike.And don’t forget, as studies have begun to show, even with self-driving cars and car booking services, they’re actually bringing more congestion onto the streets.
You'd be forgiven for never hearing about Pivot, a "disruptive" cable TV network that disrupted very little in its three-year lifespan.Fortitude is set in a small, fictional Norway-governed Arctic research/fishing town of the same name, and its cast includes Stanley Tucci, Michael Gambon, Sofie Gråbøl (original The Killing), Richard Dormer (Game of Thrones), and many other fantastic actors.Townspeople disagree about what's going on.The larvae were preserved inside of the aforementioned mammoth corpse, then started spreading from resident to resident.The hosts become murderously insane and force their infestations on others (cue gross fly-transfer horror scene).Look at this list: Dennis Quaid, Ken Stott (Rebus), Robert Sheehan (Love/Hate), Parminder Nagra (Bend it Like Beckham, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Android fans are about to be divided into two groups: those who buy a Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8 , and those who wish they had a Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8 .Consumers haven’t even yet had the chance to experience Samsung’s 2017 flagship phones for themselves, but they already know these phones are something special.Samsung’s nearly edgeless “Infinity Display” combines with curved sides on the front and back of the phone to create a look and feel that are as close to perfect as any company has come so far, considering current technological limitations.Samsung already said Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 pre-orders have outpaced last year’s Galaxy S7 and S7 edge, and now the company has offered actual pre-order figures that are impressive, to say the least.Samsung announced earlier this week that global Galaxy S8 and S8 pre-orders are outpacing the previous-generation models.The company noted “strong double-digit growth,” but failed to offer any firm pre-order figures.
Yahoo has been slapped with a lawsuit alleging it mismanaged millions of dollars in trust funds that were earmarked to aid jailed Chinese political dissidents.Filed in a federal court in Washington D.C. on behalf of eight Chinese dissidents on Tuesday (11 April), the lawsuit accuses Yahoo of "willfully turning a blind eye" as the fund's manager and high-profile political activist, Harry Wu, illegally used the funds for personal gain.Back in 2007, Yahoo agreed to set up a $17.3m (£14m) human rights fund to help Chinese democracy advocates, human rights lawyers and writers as part of a lawsuit settlement with the families of dissidents.To administer the funds, Yahoo appointed Shanghai-born Wu, a political rights activist who spent 19 years in Chinese labour camps before eventually seeking asylum in the US.The US citizen and director of the Washington-based human rights organisation Laogai Research Foundation (LRF) died in April 2016.Yahoo reportedly had a legal duty to ensure that the funds were properly managed and used.
