Microsoft Teams är tänkt som en hubb för samarbete i team och ska ge användare tillgång till innehåll, verktyg, medarbetare och möjligheter att konversera inom ramen för Office 365-miljön.Den stora frågan är naturligtvis om Microsoft Teams kan konkurrera med mäkta populära Slack.Teams drar nytta av att vara en del av Office 365, en molnplattform som är ett trovärdigt alternativ för många företag.Att Microsoft valde att ta fram en egen produkt i stället för att, ryktesvis, betala åtta miljarder dollar för Slack visar att det är en viktig produkt för it-jätten.En färsk studie från molnmäklaren Bitglass visar till exempel att Office 365 har rullats ut i 35 procent av alla organisationer.Även om det kan upplevas som ännu ett Microsoftverktyg att hålla reda på så erbjuder det ett viktigt alternativ.

Ultimate Marvel vs, Capcom 3 should give players a nice appetizer before its full sequel arrives later this year.The PS4 is relatively small, packaged in a simple black chassis, and it features a sloped front occupied by a disc slot and touch-sensitive power and eject switches.A light bar on the top turns blue to signal it s powering up, white when it s smoothly running, and yellow when it s powered down.The console runs very quietly, except when you put a disc in for the first time.First-person shooter games in particular benefit from a specific type of controller, one with triggers and a longer frame to grip than previous Sony controllers offered.Up to 15 minutes of footage can be saved, and then uploaded to Facebook.

I veckan berättade Airbus att de arbetar med en prototyp för flygande bilar, men de är inte ensamma om att vilja få upp våra landfordon i luften.Nu har den amerikanska armen nämligen bevisat att även cyklar kan bli luftburna.Det är US Army research laboratory som tillsammans med industripartner tagit fram svävarhojen JTARV Joint Tactical Aerial Resupply Vehicle som man nu tagit ut på en testflygning.Ordet svävarcyckel är i dagsläget lite av en överdrift, för prototypen av JTARV liknar mest en avskalad quadrakopter.Men när maskinen är redo för fältet förväntar sig armén stora saker från svävaren.Var som helst på slagfältet kan soldater potentiellt få nya förnödenheter inom mindre än 30 minuter , säger Timg Vong, chef vid US Army research laboratory, till arméns sajt.

BI-systemen är bland de viktigaste verktyg som cheferna i en kommun har.Men de är långt ifrån användarvänliga När Jonas Elmtoft började i rollen som controller med ansvar för beslutsstödet i Botkyrka kommun var det under 30 procent av cheferna som ansåg att de hade en bra användbarhet och funktionalitet.– Redan från början förstod jag att det var dags att se över vår beslutsstödslösning eftersom den var väldigt svår att administrera, säger han.Så för att ta reda på hur verktyget skulle fungera på bästa sätt fick helt enkelt cheferna säga sitt.Det handlade mycket om lättanvänt och att alla viktiga system skulle aggregeras i samma rapporter så att det går att få en bild av ekonomi, personal och verksamhet i samma rapport, säger Jonas Elmtoft.När all data som är relevant för en chef för att få helhetsbild över sin verksamhet fångas upp i samma rapport går det också att snabbare se tecken på om något är på tok framhåller Jonas Elmtoft.

Kiinalaisen JD.com-verkkokaupan laskurin mukaan tiistaina kello 12.45 jo yli miljoona asiakasta on varannut suomalaisen HMD:n uuden Nokia 6 -puhelimen.Varaus ei ole sitova, mutta maksaa Phonearena.com-sivuston mukaan noin 9 euroa.Summa hyvitetään lopullisen kaupan yhteydessä.Myynnin on tarkoitus alkaa ylihuomenna 19. tammikuuta.JD.com-verkkokaupassa toimitettujen puhelinten todellinen määrä on usein selvästi varausmäärää pienempi.Varausmäärä kuvastaa kuluttajien kiinnostusta puhelinta kohtaan.

4K video capture at 30fpsUnfortunately, previous generations of GoPros have erred on the unapproachable side, lacking a rear screen to set up and review footage, bamboozling users with a variety of complicated camera settings, and making it a pain to retrieve footage and images when in a rush or on the move.TomTom's Bandit, Garmin's Virb range and the seriously affordable Olfi camera all offer 4K video recording, but with a much friendlier UI designed to appeal to those starting out in the action cam game.That range now consists of the Hero Session, Hero5 Session and the daddy of the lot: the Hero5 Black.New additions to this high-performance monster include a rear touchscreen display, voice activation and super-easy one-button control, while the overall experience has been abridged to make capturing the action as painless as possible.At £349.99 / $399 / AU$569, the Hero5 Black is priced in line with the Hero4 Black that it replaces, despite the new gizmos, while video resolution is boosted to 4K at 30fps, still images jump to 12MP and ultra-smooth super slow-mo opportunities are now possible with a 1080p resolution at 120fps.

Chinese brand Leagoo is trying to aggresively advance towards the better market share across all the mobile phone segments and in the budget segment they are pinning their hopes on a new Leagoo M8 model.Leagoo M8 is trying to follow in the footsteps of older brothers M5 and M5 Plus and the design looks pretty much the same with some small differences.Despite the plastic build the back cover has a brushed metal texture so it should both look and feel pretty okay.It s also slightly bigger than the conventional 5,5-inch phones these and sports a 5,7-inch screen with HD resolution and 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass 4 protection.Pure budget ancestry comes sadly with the very basic MT6580A processor clocked at 1,3 GHz meaning you will have to survive without the 4G support.At least they put in the 2 GB RAM and 16 GB of extendable storage for better performance.Rear 13 MPix camera comes with a Sony sensor with f/2.2 aperture and the front selfie one with 8 Mpix f/2.0 sensor.Phone is a dual SIM one with rear fast fingerprint scanner and Freeme OS 6.0 based on Android 6.0 Marshmallow.

Most of us have, at some point in our lives, run into a boss who thinks the rules don't apply to them.But a new HMRC report shows that some really take pride in flouting the rules, giving some truly jaw-dropping reasons for not paying their employees the legally-mandated minimum wage.My workers are often just on standby when there are no customers in the shop; I only pay them for when they re actually serving someone.The employee wasn t a good worker so I didn t think they deserved to be paid the National Minimum Wage.It s part of UK culture not to pay young workers for the first 3 months as they have to prove their worth first.I ve got an agreement with my workers that I won t pay them the National Minimum Wage; they understand and they even signed a contract to this effect.

Another edition of the Consumer Electronics Show has come and gone, and as with most years, it was ground zero for a host of technically-but-not-really-smart things that have little practical value or actual chance of coming to market.If you ve ever had a hankering for internet-connected water bottles or fitness-tracking belts, CES was the show for you.For everyone else, the pickings were a little more slim, but there were still some gadgets that are worth keeping an eye on as we forge into the new year.Here s a handful that gave me reasons to be hopeful.

The days of FM radio are numbered, at least in Norway.Beginning later this week, Norway will begin switching off its FM radio network as it transitions to Digital Audio Broadcasting DAB .It s the first country to commit to such a change, though depending on how it goes, other countries may soon follow suit.Though Norway is moving full steam ahead with its plan to make FM radio a thing of the past, the move has been met with some controversy.According to Reuters, a whopping 66% of Norwegian citizens oppose the switch, with only 17% saying they re in favor of it.A major concern, according to that report, are the two million cars that aren t equipped for the changeover.
