Exact figures on how much it is costing British firms vary but recent research from the UK government found that eight out of ten large companies had suffered a breach and most were seeing attacks on at least once a month.But nowadays it is increasingly attracting professional criminals.They can make good money from cybercrime and the risk of getting caught is low.Even if they do get caught the punishments are far less arduous than if you get caught robbing an actual bank or dealing drugs.The huge growth of Bitcoin and other alternative currencies have also made it much easier for the crooks to get paid.The traditional way of protecting a business against cyber-attack was to protect the perimeter.

U.S. Patent Office Today, when a car runs into a pedestrian, it often carries the person along until the driver brakes, throwing the victim from the vehicle, possibly leading to further injury as they hit the road or some other hard surface, or get hit by another car, the patent said."An eggshell-like layer covering the adhesive would protect the sticky surface during everyday driving, but shatter in an accident to reveal the glue.The Google patent comes at a time of rising pedestrian traffic fatalities, with preliminary data suggesting a 10 percent increase nationally last year from 4,884 deaths in 2014, according to the Governors Highway Safety Association."Manufacturers have gotten remarkably good at protecting the occupants of the vehicle, but there's been much less attention to protecting the people outside.But, Smith said, Google's patent highlights a problem central to safety engineering: solutions create their own concerns.Contact Ethan Baron at 408-920-5011 or follow him at Twitter.com/ethanbaron
Google engineering director Erik Kay talks about the new Allo messaging app and Duo video calling app during Google I/OGoogle has revealed its latest project to the world - an app which can effectively write your text messages for you.Allo learns over time from your style of writing and emoji use, and will present replies accordingly.Its Smart Reply feature is capable of analysing pictures sent to you - for example, a dog or a baby - and generating suggestions such as "Aww, cute dog!"will return results without the need to clarify who 'he' is.Clever feature Whisper Shout is an amusing way to enlarge or downscale your text in order to convey your emotions more clearly, and you can write and doodle on photos using Ink - similar to the way you can draw over Snapchat photos.Alongside Allo, Google launched new video messaging app Duo, which provides a live video preview of the caller in order to make the call feel less intrusive.
Apple has announced that it s creating its first app development accelerator in Asia, as the Cupertino company seeks to woo India s engineering community with a dedicated space in which to learn design best-practices for Apple s mobile operating system.Expected to open in Bengaluru in early 2017, the iOS App Design and Development Accelerator will support engineering talent and accelerate growth in India s iOS developer community, according to a press release.India has emerged as a key battleground for the big U.S. tech companies as both Google and Facebook look to tap the burgeoning online population — with varying degrees of success — even though much of the country s 1.3 billion inhabitants remain offline.And earlier this year, Apple confirmed plans to open a new development hub in Hyderabad, India that s expected to eventually house around 4,500 people.Apple s new app accelerator will essentially serve to help developers improve their design and development skills for iOS and will include one-on-one app reviews for developers, as well as support for Apple s programming language, Swift.India is home to one of the most vibrant and entrepreneurial iOS development communities in the world, said Apple CEO Tim Cook.With the opening of this new facility in Bengaluru, we re giving developers access to tools which will help them create innovative apps for customers around the world.Bengaluru is a major startup hub in India — an estimated one million people work in the city s technology industry, while more than 40 percent of university graduates in the area specialize in IT or engineering, according to Apple.This isn t the first such center Apple has unveiled — earlier this year, it announced its first iOS App Development Center in Europe, to be located at a partner institution in Naples, Italy.The company also has a similar hub in Brazil.

We looked at the big picture and distilled the 2016 Exponential Manufacturing conference into the four big themes we saw emerge during the event.Dale Doughtry, CEO and founder of Maker MediaCrowdfunding platforms are fueling the entry of these low-cost machines, like the Makerarm, which raised nearly half a million dollars on Kickstarter, and is the first complete digital fabrication robotic arm that mounts to a desktop.Robotics expert and director of Columbia University s Creative Machine Labs, Hod Lipson, projected how these advances in AI and robotics will converge to create fully resilient and adaptive cloud-connected factories in the future.Shree Bose took this route with Piper, a computer kit for kids to learn engineering through the game Minecraft and the grand prize winner of Google s Global Science Fair.Bose said she only built one scrappy prototype of Piper before beginning the Kickstarter campaign.Hagel said the economy is splitting into two parts—products and services are fragmenting into smaller and smaller pieces, while the platforms knitting them together are getting bigger.
Business leaders who have opted to wait out a tech jobs hiring crunch to fill or add positions in their organization may want to consider getting off the sidelines.When a talent shortage article is published, it s likely that some people in the audience will roll their eyes and think that they each know a half-dozen talented IT professionals who are either under-employed or unemployed.Analysis of U.S. Bureau of Labor statistics by corporate advisory and strategy firm CEB shows that by 2020, the U.S. could have 1.4 million open computing jobs.Eóin O Toole, co-founder and managing partner of recruiter Arete Partners, notes that when employers turn up their noses at night school and online certificate programs, they exacerbate the problem.That may mean encouraging people with backgrounds not typical of those in science, technology, engineering and math.Programs aimed at adults are bringing people into STEM careers from seemingly unlikely backgrounds.

Seats are limited--secure yours now Most everyone has a general understanding of the laws of attraction.It s the idea that tells us by focusing on positive or negative thoughts, a person brings positive or negative experiences into their life.We have to take attitude out of the equation, and replace it with proven marketing tactics that will get leads interested in your business.Getting out of the office is the only way to do that.While you may not win with affordability or the amount of shade provided, you can win by explaining how your product is the easiest to carry and set up when you re hauling four kids and all their stuff to the beach.To showcase this expertise, you could create videos that show the time and effort it takes to load a traditional beach umbrella into a car and then haul it to the beach versus how much easier it is with your product.
In a bid to win over more Indian developers, Apple on Wednesday announced it would set up by early next year a facility to help developers on best practices and to improve the design, quality and performance of their apps on the iOS platform.Apple estimates that over 1 million people in the city work in the tech sector, with over 40 percent of graduates from local universities specializing in engineering or IT.Apple s CEO Tim Cook is on his first visit to India, which he has identified as a growth market for the company, where he expects disproportionate growth versus the more developed areas.Developers usually try out a concept first on Android before offering an iOS version of the app, as it is easier to validate the concept with the large amount of feedback you get from Android users, he added.But iOS is also attractive for developers because users of the iPhone tend to have higher purchasing power and are more likely to retain apps they download, in contrast to Android users who frequently delete apps to save on memory on their phones, Mathew said.The company will also give developers access to tools which will help them create innovative apps for customers around the world, and provide support on Apple s Swift programming language.
Chinese home-appliance maker Midea Group 000333 -2.06 % announced Wednesday it plans to launch a takeover of Germany s Kuka AG KU2 28.84 % , in a deal that values the industrial robot maker at more than $5 billion, making it one of the largest unsolicited approaches of a foreign company by a Chinese buyer.Midea Group said it intends to increase the shares it owns in Kuka to more than 30%, which requires an offer for all issued shares in the Ausburg, Germany-based company.Morgan Stanley is providing Midea with a bridge loan to finance the deal, a spokeswoman for the Chinese company said.State-owned China Securities Finance Corp Ltd and private-equity firm CDH Investments are among Midea s minority shareholders.Closely held German engineering company Voith Group holds 25% in Kuka, with another 10% being held by German billionaire Friedhelm Loh via his holding company.On the bright side for Voith Group and Mr. Loh, stronger ties with Midea could help Kuka spur sales in China, which is the world s fastest-growing robotics market with an expected annual growth of 14% for the next few years, according to the Chinese company.

Chinese mobile dating app Tantan has raised a $32 million USD series C funding from a group of investors, including LB Investment, Vision Capital 元璟资本 , and DST Global.The latter is headed by Russian billionaire Yuri Milner, whose investment portfolio includes big name tech companies, including Didi Chuxing, Xiaomi, Facebook, Snapchat, and Twitter.After this round of funding, we plan to continue focusing on user pain points, improving daily usage, and consolidating our position in the social application industry, a PR spokesperson from Tantan told TechNode.Well this looks familiar…The company claims to have 2.5 million active users, about 80% of which are part of China s post-90 s generation.According to Chinese media, the male-to-female ratio on Tantan s app is 6:4.Founded in 2014, the Chinese app is almost identical to Tinder, down to its UI which lets users swipe left and right for potential matches.In 2015, the Beijing-based company came under fire when multiple security risks in the app were revealed by Hong Kong-based entrepreneur, Larry Salibra.By reverse-engineering the Chinese app, Mr. Salibra discovered that sensitive user data, including passwords and telephone numbers, were not encrypted and vulnerable to hackers.
Hedge fund Corvex Partners has revealed that it owns 10 per cent of the veteran streaming music company – and that selling out to a larger company is preferable to pursuing a "costly and uncertain business plan."In a US Securities and Exchange Commission filing, Corvex expresses dismay over the return of founder Tim Westergren as CEO.The hedge fund doesn't think it's worthless – just that it would be worth more to shareholders if it sold now at a premium."Pandora's logged-in mobile user base, deep reach and engagement, and differentiated song recommendation engine are unique assets, and we believe a large, well-capitalized acquirer could further accelerate the company's competitive advantages over time through synergies in areas such as technology and engineering, ad monetization, and customer acquisition and marketing.Simply put, we believe Pandora can become an even more differentiated product and a more valuable business as a part of a larger enterprise," Corvex notes.Corvex points out that Pandora has made only modest gains since IPO relative to the market.
GIFMany of us spent a good portion of our college years battling it out in Mario Kart.Those carefully-honed skills aren t exactly a big seller on your resume, unless you happen to be one of four Colorado State University students who created a real-life version of the game, complete with weapons and power-ups.It s called Junkyard Battle Racers.Undergrad engineering students Alex Zenk, Katie Johnson, Floyd Bundrant, and Jacob Gover managed to use what they d learned in their mechatronics class to create a pair of interactive go-karts that turn racing into more than just a test of their driving skills.These randomly assign the kart with either a speed boost, a shield, or a pair of weapons that can be used against other racers.But when hit by a death beam, the brakes are applied as well, bringing the kart to an immediate stand still giving your opponent the chance to race ahead.

Eight studies have received funding under Phase 2 of the NASA innovative Advanced Concepts program, including a proposal to blast tiny spacecraft to other star systems using powerful lasers.The high-risk, high-reward ideas — which received grants under Phase 2 of the NASA Innovative Advanced Concepts NIAC program — include a possible way to induce a hibernation-like state in Mars-bound astronauts and a proposal to blast tiny spacecraft between the stars using powerful lasers."The NIAC program is one of the ways NASA engages the U.S. scientific and engineering communities, including agency civil servants, by challenging them to come up with some of the most visionary aerospace concepts," Steve Jurczyk, associate administrator of NASA's Space Technology Mission Directorate in Washington, D.C, said in a statement Friday May 13 .This basic idea is at the heart of the $100 million Breakthrough Starshot project, which Stephen Hawking and other scientists announced last month.In this concept, a spacecraft would slow down upon approach to a planet by generating its own magnetic field.- See more at: http://www.space.com/32894-nasa-interstellar-flight-tech-niac-space-grants.html sthash.r4Idujwq.dpuf"Phase 2 decisions are always challenging, but we were especially challenged this year with so many successful Phase 1 studies applying to move forward with their cutting-edge technologies," Jason Derleth, the NIAC program executive at NASA Headquarters in Washington, D.C., said in the same statement.
Microsoft has announced it is selling the feature phone business it acquired from Nokia to FIH Mobile, a subsidiary of Foxconn, and the newly-established Finnish company HMD Global for $350 million.But Nokia is still a mobile phone company at heart, and it has previously hinted at a comeback, only this time around it would focus solely on designing products and then license the designs and Nokia brand to someone that can handle manufacturing, sales and distribution.HMD Global is a recently-founded company headquartered in Helsinki, Finland, to be run by former Nokia and Microsoft executive Arto Numella.The company has signed a licensing agreement with Nokia Technologies that gives it the sole use of the Nokia brand on mobile phones and tablets worldwide for the next decade, as well as key cellular patents.HMD will make Nokia-branded phones using Google's Android and will invest $500 million over the next three years "to support the global marketing of Nokia-branded mobile phones and tablets.Some rumors say Microsoft may be focusing on a Surface Phone launch next year and it's unlikely we'll see another Lumia this year.
