Google has flicked the switch on the Australian version of YouTube Red , the twelve bucks a month version of the service that features no ads and allows online viewing.If you pony up you also get access to a clutch of YouTube Originals that extend the output of popular YouTubers and look to be aimed squarely at the youth market.Google also throws in a subscription to its streaming music service and folks who already pay for that get YouTube Red gratis.YouTube ads are an endurable irritant and the Originals are not likely to excite many: your correspondent's 14-year-old progeny thinks YouTube-spawned comedian PewDiePie is old hat, while my 11-year-old's ardour is fading.But Vulture South's team cannot imagine that YouTube Red will scare Australia's incumbent paid video providers Foxtel, Stan and Netflix, or make telcos Optus and Telstra feel like their strategies are weak.Sponsored: Make your system highly available and recoverable using PureApplication system
Here you can peer into the lives of some of Facebook s global community of 1.65 billion users.But don t expect too much – a random look through feeds late Wednesday showed a guy staring blankly at his smartphone camera, a shaky POV of a motorcycle journey, a person buttering toast, and a guy in a youth hostel eating noodles.Blue dots indicate the location of a stream, and hovering your mouse over it connects you to the feed.These point to where current viewers are located around the world, though maybe Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg will look at them as an indicator of how well he s succeeding in his quest to connect everyone on the planet.Live Video s interactive map should certainly boost traffic for the service, as before the only way you d know if a user was broadcasting live was via a notification, meaning you had to already be following them.Facebook knows there s money to be made here – users reportedly watch live broadcasts for three times longer than recorded video, and post 10 times more comments.
More people will be allowed on the road as regulations are relaxed, allowing old, disabled, and youth to drive a car.Most experts see three parts to the autonomous vehicle rollout: human-AI interaction in the next two to five years, fully autonomous travel with regulations in the next five to 10 years, and fully autonomous travel for any human in the next 10 to 20 years.KPMG still sees autonomous vehicles as indispensableKPMG s report focuses on the last part, where everyone has an autonomous vehicle or can order one and regulations — at least in the United States — are relaxed to the point where teenagers, elderly, and disabled people are allowed to drive unsupervised.Automotive-as-a-service could be a potential new market for app developers, creating systems on top of the autonomous architecture.Connect it to Uber and make money while at work.We might even see a day where cars are public transport, the same as trains and buses, ordered on an app whenever you need one.
DT s entertainment show, Between the Streams, is your guide to all of the hottest, most important, and of course dumbest new developments in streaming and entertainment, providing a handy recap of the week that was.Sure, there s the possibly disastrous Warcraft film, the critically panned Angry Birds film which opens this weekend , and you may have even seen some pretty intriguing trailers for Michael Fassbender s new Assassin s Creed movie.While Angry Birds was a big stretch, it seems nearly impossible to make an actual film about falling blocks, but don t tell that to Chinese media exec Bruno Wu and producer Larry Kasanoff of True Lies fame , who are said to be pitching an $80 million joint venture about the hit game of old.The icing on the cake is director/writer Shane Black, who has created some of the best action films and buddy flicks in the genre, from the Lethal Weapon franchise to Kiss Kiss Bang Bang.In other words, there will be no movie magic to bring Schwarzenegger s iconic original character back to the franchise in his youth via CGI.Other topics this week vary from Harley Quinn s own DC Comics spinoff film, to a Star Wars film hoax, to Daniel Craig s stepping down as Bond for a possible ascent to the throne by Mr. Tom Hiddleston, aka Loki himself.
A shocking device aimed at changing habitual behaviourA bracelet that gives its wearer an electric shock when they go overdrawn is being launched.The plan is worked out in four stages starting with the customer logging into their credit card or bank account facility.The bracelet is expected to be particularly appealing to the youth market with parents and partners particularly expressing an interest on their beloved's behalf.Managing director David Webber was quoted as saying: "My daughter and other people we've spoken to who are under 25 think it's brilliant.The wristband was launched in 2014 by a US internet business intended for use as a way of shocking people out of bad habits, such as smoking or nail-biting.It was based on the experiment conducted by Russian psychologist Ivan Pavlov with dogs which found that the dogs - and in this case people - can be trained to behave in certain ways through reward or punishment.

Microsoft chief executive officer Satya Nadella said: "We are focusing our phone efforts where we have differentiation - with enterprises that value security, manageability and our Continuum capability, and consumers who value the same.However, the planned reductions will not impact the employees working for Microsoft Oy, a separate Microsoft sales subsidiary based in Espoo, according to the company.The company expects a significant part of the layoff process to be complete by the end of the calendar year and fully completed by July 2017, the end of the company's next fiscal year.The company sold its entry-level feature phones business for $350m earlier this month.In February, a report said that Microsoft was planning to shut down two mobile-phone manufacturing facilities in Beijing, China, cutting 9,000 jobs.Beijing Youth Daily cited a source familiar with the matter as saying that the company was looking to move some of the manufacturing operations to Vietnam.
Two thirds of them will go on to live life on or below the poverty line, having left school ill equipped to work and will live a life marred by unemployment and loneliness.As well as offering and promoting emotional support to children and their families, we're increasingly looking at ways in which technology can positively influence the life chances of a vision impaired child.It is set to become the global benchmark for using mobile devices for audio navigation.Its quite a coup for our Youth Forum to have been involved in the foundations of this global revolution, which will have such an impact on their lives, and the lives of their peers.In the same way that Wayfindr aims to take the stress out of travel, we want to see existing and emerging technologies giving vision impaired children a profoundly improved experience at school.We will continue in our quest to collaborate with the best innovators and designers that want to help us translate ideas into better futures for young vision impaired people.
Dr. Vishal Sikka is a champion of technology, and clearly sees it as an amplifier of human potential.For example, the Zero Distance initiative, which focuses on bringing innovation to every project for every client on an ongoing basis, has set a precedent in the industry for driving grassroots innovation.And if I could go back and give myself advice, I would say follow your heart more, trust your instincts more, and do what feels right, feel more confident that it s going to be okay, everything is going to work out.I had several teachers in my youth - Marvin Minsky, John McCarthy and I also admire Steve Jobs for his focus, his tenacity, and passion.Our eyes are not trained to see global climate change happening.How do you make sure that you not only think about the long term but build a road where the long term gets built, prioritized, and unforgotten?
