Häromdagen lanserades Nokia 8, en ny flaggskeppsmobil från HMD Global med skärm på 5,3 tum.Enligt den ryska sajten 4Pda har emellertid HMD Global planer på att lansera en ännu större mobil.Namnet blir troligtvis Nokia 9, men exakt hur stor skärmen blir framgår inte.De första ryktena om Nokia 9 publicerades redan i februari.Då hävdades det att mobiltelefonen skulle få stöd för Ozo Audio, en teknik som bland annat gör att bakgrundsbruset minskar.En demonstration av Ozo Audio kan ses nedan:

Alphabet's Google is developing new tools designed to boost subscriptions for news publishers, following a similar olive branch from Facebook to an industry that has seen the digital behemoths take over the online advertising market.Google’s latest foray arrives on three fronts.It’s all part of Google’s broader effort to keep consumers and content-makers returning to the web, the lifeblood of its ads business.But Richard Gingras, Google’s vice president for news, said the search giant is talking to dozens of other outlets as media companies move toward online subscription models.“But it’s also clear that we’re seeing a shift in a market.”Media companies are focused intently on online subscriptions as print ads shrivel and digital ad spending consolidates with Facebook and Google, which together this year will garner more than 60pc of the $83bn market, according to EMarketer.

New Star Wars movies will be in theaters in a handful of months, but Disney is already looking years into the future.According to sources who have surfaced, the next standalone Star Wars movie will center around Obi-Wan Kenobi, though who will be playing him hasn’t yet been determined.The sources claim that Oscar-nominated Stephen Daldry has been tapped to direct the next movie.The information comes from The Hollywood Reporter, which says it was alerted to the plans via sources claiming the deal is very early in its existence.No script for the movie has been written, and it sounds like Daldry hasn’t been completely guaranteed as director.The roles of Obi-Wan Kenobi have previously been played by Alec Guinness and Ewan McGregor.

The products and services we use every day are also the ones hate groups use to organize and spread their messages.Prominent tech leaders are involved in government.The president issues statements from his mobile phone.If you're having trouble keeping up, below is a roundup of companies and their responses to not just the events that left one woman dead and more than 30 injured, but to President Donald Trump's own controversial response, as well as to outcry to snuff out the type of content online that celebrates racism, bigotry and hatred.Our team has been thorough and have had thoughtful discussions for years about what the right policy was on censoring.Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg wrote a post on Facebook responding to Charlottesville and underlining the site's policy to take down any post that "promotes or celebrates hate crimes or acts of terrorism."

Why do I feel so much like Sigourney Weaver?"In March 2017, the Amazon founder and CEO appeared piloting the gigantic robot prototype at the company's MARS conference in Palm Springs.Standing at four metres tall, Method-2's cockpit, housed in its torso, is just big enough for one person.The pilot's hands are connected to two mechanical levers that transmit movement to its huge aluminium hands.But what appeared to be a billionaire's party prank was actually the culmination of a research project that began in 2014, when industrial designer Vitaly Bulgarov received a mysterious inquiry.For the previous 12 years, Bulgarov had worked for the film and games industries, creating designs and characters for RoboCop, Transformers and World of Warcraft.

Up until now the Huawei Mate 10 has largely been a mystery, but new renders for the phone may have just shown off an early look at Huawei's intended design.A user on Chinese social networking site Weibo posted the images of the Mate 10 phablet and were spotted by tech blog Android Crunch.It's uncertain where the images come from, but if each is accurate it shows some major design changes for the Mate 10.The render comes with an edge-to-edge display, which is something Huawei hasn't achieved before while the screen has very small bezels along the top and bottom of the phone.There's a fingerprint sensor on the rear of the phone - unlike the Huawei P10 - and then a dual-camera sensor that seems to have a Leica logo meaning the camera partnership with the German firm will probably continue.The phone looks a lot flatter than the Mate 9 and seems to have a brushed metal effect on the rear as well as metal edges.

MetroPCS has revealed that it will be the home of a new 6-inch smartphone from ZTE called the ZTE Blade ZMax.While the phablet isn’t yet available to purchase, interested buyers can ‘pre-register’ for the phone; as well, the carrier is offering a new promotion where buyers get a $25 gift card for the Google Play Store.You’ll only get the promo if you pre-register in time.If you want the gift card promotion, you need to head over to MetroPCS’s pre-registration and complete the survey, which asks for things like your name and phone number, which carrier you’re currently with, and whether you’re an existing MetroPCS customer.Once that process is finished, you’ll be taken to the company’s existing ZTE phone offerings.The pre-registration ends on August 27, at which point you’ll be able to actually purchase the phone, which is also a necessary step in getting the gift card.

Which means I was up early on Sunday, ready to watch soccer players from all over the world play much better than most English players.Ads interfere with sports, so I rarely look at the screen as I watch.I still didn't look up.Oh, it seems the sexes have very different dreams.Yet, looking at the ad, it's the men who do everything but the food part.They smile as they perform brain-sapping engineering tasks.

Uber SVP of Global Operations will be leaving that full-time senior leadership role in the middle of September to “focus” on his role as a director of Uber’s board.Graves, who acted as Uber’s CEO from early 2010 until founder Travis Kalanick took over the position at the end of that year, had been seen as a close associate of Kalanick’s over the course of his long tenure at the ride-hailing company.An earlier report from Business Insider suggested that Graves had had a decreased role in Uber’s operations since last August, and he remained out of the spotlight during Uber’s recent issues around culture and accusations of sexual harassment.In an email to employees announcing Graves’ departure from his SVP role, he ends by alluding to the need for the company to focus on culture now, as it neglected much of the need to do so during its rapid growth to this point.The full email from Graves to staff, obtained by TechCrunch by a source close to the matter, is included below.In the past 7.5 years of building Uber, I’ve learned so many different lessons, one of which is the fact that people who embrace uncertainty and change have the best grip on reality.

This history continues today through a resurgent national security apparatus with emboldened nationalist tendencies.This piece of legislation must be reformed in order to prevent dragnet surveillance, backdoor searches of phone and email records, and unlawful targeting of communities of color and immigrant communities.The law passed in 2008 during the George W. Bush's presidency, was extended by the Obama administration, and is now set to expire at the end of 2017, unless Congress reauthorizes the provision—a move the Trump administration supports.Rebuttals to questions of surveillance often go something like this: 'If you’ve got nothing to hide, then you shouldn’t be worried.'High-profile cases of surveilled prominent figures include civil rights leaders Martin Luther King Jr. and Cesar Chavez, who were both monitored by the FBI.Black Lives Matter activists in Ferguson, Missouri became targets of surveillance.

Back before the internet, all we had to make-do with was Teletext.But hey, that wasn't all bad, as deep within the depths of Channel 4's old service was the greatest games magazine that ever existed: Digitiser.It was an amazing work of both art and journalism, and is one of the reasons I became a writer: Despite the limitations of the teletext format, every day Mr Biffo (aka writer Paul Rose) and his colleagues would deliver a round-up of the latest games news, utterly bizarre characters and some subtly risqué jokes.In fact, I've sat here for the last ten minutes trying to think of the words to adequately convey my love for Digi, but alas it feels like an almost impossible cult institution to describe if you weren't there.But rest assured, it was the best.Anyway, the reason I mention it is because today Mr Biffo announced the launch date for perhaps his most ambitious project yet: Mr Biffo's Found Footage.

Heat waves and other weather events will increase the number of climate-related deaths dramatically in Europe in the coming decades.In a worst-case scenario, the deaths increase femtiofaldigt, according to a new study.the Study, published in The Lancet Planetary Health, is partly based on the analysis of 2/300 weather disasters in the EU area from 1981 to 2010, These were combined then with the data on the future expected climate change up to 2010.the Starting point was a worst-case scenario, with a continued strong increase of global greenhouse gas emissions.Results: in the Year 2100, two of the three people in the EU be affected by various weather disasters, from approximately 25 million per year today, to over 350 million per year at the end of the century.the Number of weather-related deaths could increase 50-fold, from 3/000 deaths per year in the period 1981-2010 to 152 000 per year during the period 2071-2100.

The increasingly internet-connected nature of vehicles means cars are fast becoming just another potential target for hackers looking to steal personal data, remotely control vehicles or even leave the driver unable to start the car because the systems have been infected with ransomware.And that's before the eventual arrival of driverless vehicles on roads across the country.In an effort to combat the issue before it's too late, the UK government has issued a set of cyber security guidelines for connected and autonomous vehicles in order to better protect them from hackers and cyberattacks.While many automotive companies already have specialists focusing on security, the eight principles are designed to provide guidance to car manufacturers and their supply chains on how they can ensure cyber security is ingrained into every level of the car building process.The basics of the principles are:Organisational security is owned, governed and promoted at board level
