Netflix CEO Reed Hastings just took the stage on Monday afternoon at the Mobile World Congress show in Barcelona, Spain to talk about content in the midst a period of disruption and change during a light-hearted chat.Interviewed on stage by the BBC, Hastings briefly touched on the company s incredible Oscar win on Sunday.Internet TV is clearly the way to go for content companies like Netflix and its competitors.Hastings, however, doesn t seem afraid of the increasing competition, especially in coming years.That said, Netflix is excited about being at the forefront, and about having a huge slice of the market in the near future, when everything TV-related will be done over the internet.Hastings explained that being at the forefront is also bringing to light more challenging topics, including suicide among teens — Netflix has an upcoming show based on that controversial topic.

The NHS has been accused of covering up a large data loss involving the loss or mislaying of more than half a million pieces of confidential information.Confidential medical correspondence – including test results, diagnoses and treatment plans – between GPs and hospitals went undelivered during the five years from 2011 to 2016, The Guardian reports.The problem arose because the firm tasked with arranging the delivery of internal NHS correspondence mistakenly stored it in a warehouse.A total of 708,000 items of correspondence were undelivered, 200,000 of which covered change of address forms and are therefore of great importance.The NHS has put together a team to assess the impact of the systematic blunder, The Guardian adds.Tony Pepper, co-founder and chief exec of data security company Egress, said the NHS's reliance on paper records is partly to blame for the systematic screw-up.

Most people, with the exception of those who live beneath the subway grates and Ted Cruz, don t like to be alone for too long.When that attention comes from an intelligent piano-playing machine, however, shit gets weird.It s pretty simple: Open up the web player, play a few notes on your keyboard, and wait for your strange new robot friend to respond with its own music.It s like jamming, if jamming involved a machine instead of your long-haired friend who likes to noodle badly on the guitar.When I first tried it, it didn t work quite as planned.I played a few notes—terribly, because one semester of piano lessons in college taught me how to play the beginning of Coldplay s Clocks and nothing else, which is horrific and sad in its own way—but my computer friend didn t answer.

Seasonal traffic trends have a tremendous impact on websites, and businesses need to take full advantage of the traffic spikes surrounding specific seasons and holidays — particularly those that are relevant to their products and services.For example, with Google Trends, we can see interest in the term Valentine s Day gifts spikes, unsurprisingly, around Valentine s Day:Interest begins building in early January and then drastically falls off after Valentine s Day, around February 16.Websites that sell Valentine s Day gifts would surely want to be aware of and prepared for these periods of boosted interest.Of course, taking advantage of these surges in interest requires ongoing work throughout the year.You need to launch your link campaign long before a holiday to reap the rewards when interest peaks.

The National Weather Service rating of an EF-3 makes it the strongest tornado to impact Orleans Parish since record-keeping statistics began there.The operational Enhanced Fujita EF scale indicates that 3-second wind gusts were likely in the 136-165 mph range.Such winds did take its toll on a key NASA facility.As a former NASA scientist myself, I often find the public's knowledge rather limited on NASA's mission and geographic reach.Though I was an Earth scientist and research meteorologist at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland for twelve years, people would always ask me if I worked at Kennedy Space Center or in Houston.They would also assume that I did something related to the space shuttle even though NASA's mission is so much broader than people's perceptions of it.
