China Freezes $1.5 Billion of P2P Assets in Intensified Probe – BloombergWhat happened: Chinese police have frozen RMB 10 billion (around $1.5 billion) worth of assets across more than 380 peer-to-peer (P2P) lenders in a large-scale investigation spanning 16 countries.The operation, code-named “Fox Hunt,” has led to the arrest of 62 suspects since June.Why it’s important: Chinese authorities have been clamping down on the P2P lending industry that started flourishing in an under-regulated environment a decade ago.Rife with fraud, P2P lending has earned a bad name in China.Most infamously, it spawned the country’s largest Ponzi scheme in 2015.
Microsoft today reported earnings for its second fiscal quarter of 2019, including revenue of $32.5 billion, net income of $8.4 billion, and earnings per share of $1.08 (compared to revenue of $28.9 billion, net income of $7.5 billion, and earnings per share of $0.96 in Q2 2018).Analysts had expected Microsoft to earn $32.5 billion in revenue and report earnings per share of $1.09.The company thus met, but did not beat, expectations.“Our strong commercial cloud results reflect our deep and growing partnerships with leading companies in every industry including retail, financial services, and healthcare,” Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella said in a statement.“We are delivering differentiated value across the cloud and edge as we work to earn customer trust every day.”The consistent quarterly success can be attributed to Nadella’s plan to turn Microsoft into a cloud company.

Xiaomi, the Chinese company best known for budget phones, is betting big on a future of connected homes.It plans to plough at least 100 billion yuan, or $1.48 billion, into the so-called “AIoT” sector over the next five years, founder and chief operating office Lei Jun announced on Friday.AIoT, short for “AI + IoT,” is an upgrade from devices connected to the internet, known as the Internet of Things.AIoTs are intelligent, run on automated systems and can learn from users’ habits, like lights that automatically turn on when you get home.A wave of home appliances will be replaced by smart devices.The move comes as Xiaomi, the world’s fourth-largest smartphone vendor, copes a weakening market.
Digital signals can be compressed and can include additional information for error correction.HDMI Encoder Modulator,16in1 Digital Headend,HD RF Modulator at SOUKA https://www.soukacatv.com/.Characteristics of Digital Signals Bit intervalIt is the time required to send one single bit Bit rate(i) It refers to the number of bit intervals in one second.1 kilobit per second (Kbps) = 1,000 bits per second 1 Megabit per second (Mbps) = 1,000,000 bits per second 1 Gigabit per second (Gbps) = 1,000,000,000 bits per secondAdvantages of Digital Signals Digital Data - Digital transmission certainly has the advantage where binary computer data is being transmitted.The equipment required to convert digital data to analog format and transmitting the digital bit streams over an analog network can be expensive, susceptible to failure, and can create errors in the information.Compression - Digital data can be compressed relatively easily, thereby increasing the efficiency of transmission.As a result, substantial volumes of voice, data, video and image information can be transmitted using relatively little raw bandwidth.Security - Digital systems offer better security.Digital information, on the other hand, can be encrypted to create the appearance of a single, pseudorandom bit stream.Additionally, digital networks deal more effectively with noise, which always is present in transmission networks.Cost - The cost of the computer components required in digital conversion and transmission has dropped considerably, while the ruggedness and reliability of those components has increased over the years.Upgradeability - Since digital networks are comprised of computer (digital) components, they are relatively easy to upgrade.
Some of the most frequently used screen resolutions include 1,920 x 1080, and even 1,024 x 768.Sometimes these resolutions are listed at FHD, 1440p, 1080p, 4K, or QHD.Contrast ratio – Not really 1,000,000,000:1This phrase is one that you’ve almost certainly heard before.There are many ways to fudge the results, which is why there are inexpensive displays that claim insane ratios like 10,000:1.The laptop with highest contrast ratio we’ve ever tested is the 4K version of the Dell XPS 13, though laptops in the Surface and MacBook line often include high contrast as well.
Thanks to a shocking security vulnerability, hackers have flooded a “decentralized” token exchange platform with 1 billion fake EOS EOS.By the end of the heist, the thieves were able to steal almost $58,000 in cryptocurrency directly from users.The hackers created a new EOS-based token, ironically named “EOS,” and used it to illegitimately purchase BLACK, IQ, and ADD tokens from exchange service Newdex.“EOS account oo1122334455 issued 1,000,000,000 fake EOS tokens,” Newdex wrote in a statement.A total of 11,800 fake EOS orders were issued to purchase BLACK, IQ [sic] and ADD.”The thieves eventually traded the collection of tokens for real EOS cryptocurrency.
If LED-LCD sets are dying, no one gave the biggest TV manufacturers in the world the memo - in fact, if this keeps up, 2018 might just be the year LED-LCD manages to outshine OLED.These quips aren't based on mere conjecture, however; We can say them knowing the final specs and release date for VIZIO’s sought-after P-Series Quantum - a quantum dot set with some fairly high specs at half the price of the competition.To that end, the P-Series Quantum will be available at retailers starting today (surprise!)- but only come in a single size (65-inches) packing an inordinate number of contrast control zones (192!).It will feature UltraBright 2000 that allows the TV to output up to 2000 nits at peak brightness and VIZIO’s proprietary Quantum Color Spectrum technology that will help the TV display over 1,000,000,000 colors.It will have a 240Hz effective refresh rate (what VIZIO calls Clear Action 960) as well as its SmartCast OS that layers a traditional UI on top of Google’s Chromecast Built-in platform.
Short for "frame-tick" if you're willing to overlook the absence of the letter "l" from either word, a flick lasts 1/705,600,000 of a second.It's a bit longer than a nanosecond, which clocks in at one billionth (1/1,000,000,000) of a second, and that's by design."When working creating visual effects for film, television, and other media, it is common to run simulations or other time-integrating processes which subdivide a single frame of time into a fixed, integer number of subdivisions," explains Christopher Horvath, who spearheaded the creation of the time unit for Facebook's Oculus VR, in the code's GitHub repo."It is handy to be able to accumulate these subdivisions to create exact 1-frame and 1-second intervals, for a variety of reasons."It turns out that film and video frame rates can't be evenly divided using nanoseconds.If you represent the duration of a single frame at 1/24 fps in nanoseconds and then multiply that by 24, the result isn't exactly a billion.
Facebook launched a new product today: Flicks, a new unit of time.A unit of time, like seconds or minutes or hours.After all, why limit asserting your corporate dominance to social connections, the consumption of the news cycle, and advertising on the internet, when you can define the very flow of time itself?According the the GitHub page documenting Flicks, a Flick is “the smallest time unit which is LARGER than a nanosecond,” defined as 1/705,600,000 of a second.(For comparison, a nanosecond is 1/1,000,000,000 of a second, making a Flick roughly 1.41723356 nanoseconds long.)We've launched Flicks, a unit of time, slightly larger than a nanosecond that exactly subdivides media frame rates and sampling frequencies.
Facebook just hit 2 billion monthly active users.Look, we all know Facebook is massive and growing, but that figure is still remarkable.It was at 1.94 billion as of March, so it took a while to add those final 60 million users, but that’s not too surprising given most people who will ever use Facebook are probably already on it.Also a of March, the company had 1.28 billion daily users, so it’s clear most people are using the platform regularly.For reference, the current estimated Global population as of April 2017 is 7.5 billion.That means that over a quarter of all the people on planet Earth use Facebook every month – and that’s not even counting Facebook-owned apps like Instagram and WhatsApp.
CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced today (on Facebook, naturally) that the social network now has 2 billion users per month.The milestone means that Facebook is still the planet's most popular social network.The news underscores how Facebook's ever-growing community makes it more valuable as an ad platform.It also validates the social network's status as a place where people share news and ideas.Meanwhile, Instagram -- which Facebook also owns -- topped 700 million users in April and reached its own milestone earlier this month: 250 million daily active users on Instagram Stories.By comparison, Twitter had 328 million monthly users by the end of the first quarter of 2017, according to Statista.
announced Tuesday that the social network now has more than 2 billion monthly users.first-quarter earnings report last month that it had 1.936 billion monthly users as of March 31, so it was just a matter of time.and product manager Guillermo Spiller that other monthly milestones include more than 175 million uses of the Love Reaction, more than 800 million likes and more than 1 billion people using groups, and they introduced “several personalized experiences” that the social network will launch “over the coming days”:We are launching a personalized video to celebrate bringing the world closer together.You may see your video in your News Feedfacebook.com/goodaddsup.After someone reacts to a friend’s post with Love, wishes someone happy birthday or creates a group, they will see a message in News Feed thanking them.
Thirteen years after launching and less than five years after hitting 1 billion, Facebook now has 2 billion monthly active users.Meanwhile, Mark Zuckerberg played it cool with this brief announcement message.Two billion makes Facebook the largest social app in terms of logged-in users, above YouTube’s 1.5 billion, WeChat’s 889 million, Twitter’s 328 million and Snapchat’s estimated 255 million (extrapolated from its December 2015 ratio when it had 110 million daily and 170 million monthly users).Beyond YouTube, only Facebook’s other apps have more than 1 billion, including WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger, with 1.2 billion each.Instagram might soon join that club as it recently rocketed past 700 million.Facebook’s growth the last half decade has been fueled by the developing world.
Facebook, the world’s largest social network by a sizable margin, now officially has more than two billion monthly active users according to a post on Tuesday by founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg.Product Director Mike Nowak and Product Manager Guillermo Spiller in a joint press release credited the millions of smaller communities and individuals for helping them achieve the milestone.To show their appreciation for the many ways people support each other on the site, Facebook said it plans to share several personalized experiences over the coming days.Zuckerberg started Facebook in 2004 while still a student at Harvard.The social network was initially limited to college students but that restriction was peeled away a couple of years later, leaving the service ripe for growth.It would take Facebook a full eight years to attract its first billion users and just five more years to lure in the next billion.
The global app economy will be worth $6.3 trillion by 2021, up from $1.3 trillion last year, according to a new report this morning from app analytics firm App Annie.During that same time frame, the user base will almost double from 3.4 billion people using apps to 6.3 billion, while the time spent in apps will grow to 3.5 trillion hours in 2021, up from 1.6 trillion in 2016.These figures represent more than just the revenue generated through app stores, the firm noted.It also took into account other forms of monetization, like in-app ads and mobile commerce.Today, the 3.4 billion app users, on average, spend $379 in apps across all three forms of monetization last year, or $0.80 per hour, per person.This figure, of course, varies wildly from market to market.
Google has been fined a record €2.42 billion for contravening the EU's antitrust law, following a seven-year investigation into the company by the European Union.It's the largest fine issued by the European Commission for an antitrust law violation, with the Commission stating Google had "abused its dominant position by systematically favouring" its own Shopping price comparison service.Google Shopping appears at the top of Google search results and compares prices from various retailers.The company described the service in a statement:"When you shop online, you want to find the products you’re looking for quickly and easily.That's why Google shows shopping ads"
Klarna, the $2 billion+ startup out of Sweden that works with some 70,000 e-commerce sites to enable payments and provide flexible financing to make purchases, is adding one more key investor to help take its next steps into a wider range of services.Today it announced that credit card giant Visa is making an equity investment in the company, and as part of it, the two are forging a strategic partnership to roll out new products.“There are many things you can do with a credit card besides the issuing of plastic cards, which are obviously still widely used, but clearly technology and product is moving very quickly towards digital or virtual issuance which is extremely interesting but also wider NFC technology, push payments, biometric authentication, mobile wallets, and so on,” said a spokesperson for Klarna.“It is not a lack of possibilities or ambition in product development nor is it always being first but it is about being the best.They include the likes of PayPal, which continues to add more services to widen its own payments net; and a range of banks that are starting up at aiming at the new class of consumers, such as Atom, and more established entities that also want in on the action by investing in them (such as BBVA).The investment comes on top of a significant secondary investment of at least $225 million made by Brightfolk, a Swedish firm controlled by a fashion magnate called Anders Holch Povlsen, at what we understand is a valuation higher than its previous $2.25 billion, which was reached in its last $80 million funding in 2015.
