p Advertising has long been considered an art form, with awards celebrating compelling and iconic ads in a range of formats.Part of the allure in advertising has always been in part the mystery of why some advertisements become the gold standard while others fall flat – but when it comes to your business, that mystery is a liability.Imagine being able to continuously refine your ads, staying on top of trends and deteriorating campaigns so that the advertisements you send out will always be the most effective ones.Using the latest developments in artificial intelligence and automation, smart ads turn the ambiguous and highly subjective process of advertising into one that is surprisingly predictable and far more efficient.Very few are taking advantage of these technologies to lift the cloud of advertising’s subjectivity with real data and intelligent systems.A recent survey of marketers by Wakefield Research revealed that while 77% of marketers were convinced that AI is a critical trend in the industry, 90% said that they weren’t currently using it.

p Thanks to Google Maps, hundreds of tourists got to visit a tiny, idyllic town in Norway.They were all 19 miles away from where they needed to be.The tourists were all looking for the Preikestolen cliffs, a geological formation in western Norway.When they tried to find a route there, however, a glitch in Google Maps sent them to the wrong side of the fjord from the cliffs.They flooded the town, and didn’t really understand when the locals tried to explain.From the sounds of it, the residents were simultaneously confused and amused by the tourists’ plight.

p Gliders offer many advantages on the battlefield, not the least of which are low cost and silent operation—two things the military loves.The US Marine Corps is testing disposable autonomous gliders that could deliver supplies to troops in enemy territory, or provide support to amphibious forces assaulting beaches far from resupply ships.This marriage of glider technology with advanced guidance and control systems turns cargo boxes into flying trucks, capable of carrying 1,600 pounds of supplies to drop zones up to 74 nautical miles away.That kind of range means larger aircraft can deploy the gilder drones far from the battlefield—and help avoid teh risk of enemy fire.“Rather than fly a bunch of helicopters around and needing to stop and unload, here you could just have a cargo plane dump a couple gliders off the back and hit a couple locations,” says Paul Scharre, project director for the 20YY Warfare Initiative at the Center for a New American Security.“It might allow for faster dispersed resupply in more hostile environments.”

p Manufacturers don’t usually rattle off component models and sources for a variety of reasons.One is to protect their partners and another is to save majority of consumers from boredom.But thanks to some recent events, consumers might be a bit more paranoid about those unidentified components.Astute observers and powers users are now bringing forward the speculation that Samsung might have put different kinds of data storage chips inside the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8, which unavoidably brings up a similar but more severe case with the Huawei P10.It actually isn’t that rare for OEMs to source components of the same type from different companies.That, however, isn’t the case with the Huawei P10 and now the Samsung Galaxy S8, though the latter is far less extreme than the former.

p The drive kick-started by Barclays comes on the heels of a survey that revealed millennials are most vulnerable to cybercrime.Leading UK bank Barclays is launching a £10m nationwide initiative, dubbed the 'Great British Fraud Fightback', aimed at spreading awareness about financial fraud risks.The digital safety drive launched on Monday (8 May) marks the first attempt by a high street bank to enable their customers to assume full control over how their debit cards would operate.Branch employees will also have access to a new police hotline to be used in instances when customers are scammed."Fraud is often wrongly described as an invisible crime, but the effects are no less damaging to people's lives" said Ashok Vaswani, chief executive of Barclays UK."As a society our confidence in using digital technology to shop, pay our bills and connect with others has grown faster than our knowledge of how to do so safely.

p Stealthy attack code spotted going after payment systemsMicrosoft's security team is urging developers to shore up their software update systems – after catching miscreants hijacking an editing application's download channels to inject malware into victims' PCs.In a security advisory, Redmond's infosec gurus describe Operation WilySupply: their mission to find, isolate and destroy an unusual and highly targeted form of malicious code that was hiding in the software update mechanism of a widely used, and unnamed, editing tool.Microsoft thinks that the attackers found a flaw in the application's upgrade system that allowed them to send unsigned updates to Windows machines to install.A 132-byte binary called ue.exe was dispatched to some victims' computers: this fired off PowerShell scripts and Meterpreter to fetch and run the Rivit trojan.This wasn't the usual spray-and-pray malware attack.

p Ed Bernard has all the right pieces, but wasn’t able to find a straightforward explanation for backing up his three Macs to a single external drive that he’s attached to one of them.First, Attach the hard drive to the Mac you want to act as the Time Machine “hub.” This should be a desktop machine and, preferably, one that’s connected via ethernet to your home network.Wi-Fi will work, but the amount of backup data passing over even the latest, fastest Wi-Fi flavor may bog down other simultaneous network activity.Even if only your Time Machine destination Mac connects to a base station via ethernet, that still halves the amount of backup data that passes over Wi-Fi—it’s transmitted from a Mac to the base station over Wi-Fi, and then from the base station via ethernet to the destination Mac.I wrote a column earlier this year that explains the formatting issues for local and networked volumes.Open the Sharing system preference pane, and make sure File Sharing is checked.

A new class of laptops, with prices ranging from $189 to $2,199, was born, and at the heart of it is Windows 10 S. Call it Secure, Streamlined, or Stunted, this new flavor of Windows 10 S is designed to sing to educators and system administrators.But, almost like a siren’s song, it comes at a cost.In addition to limiting the apps that you can install, Microsoft is also putting some limits on the settings you can change.So, yes, you can install Chrome from the Windows Store, but it will always be a second class citizen on Windows 10 S.You’re only way out is a $50 Pro upgradeIf there comes a time, in the not so distant future, when you do want to finally switch to a different browser, or you need to install some “legacy” Windows program outside of Microsoft’s store, you do have an option.

People with rich parents win again at life when it comes to buying homes, it seems, as research suggests that 26 per cent of all home purchases in the UK are done with some deposit money coming in from mum and dad.That's according to data collated by insurer Legal & General, which says that a staggering £6.5bn is being handed down through the generations to help pay for homes -- a figure that's up from £5bn the year before.This hand-me-down is enabling around 298,000 mortgages to be taken out, money that's allowing £75bn worth of housing stock to be purchased by people whose parents timed it right and struck it lucky.This total puts family lending on a level with the amount of money handed out in mortgage form by the Yorkshire Building Society, making mums and dads the joint ninth largest mortgage lenders in the UK, but presumably with slightly more favourable terms.The average amount loaned/handed out per struggling child is a massive £21,600, up from the previous year's £17,500.
