the Finnish association of Architects limited grove group ceo Hannu lehto, according to the healthy competition.according to Him, affordable housing is possible to prepare, write trade magazine."If we are just given the chance, so we were able to build in Southern Finland, 100 000 € for two-room apartments.This happens, if we can make the formula your own pencil without zoning inspectors, boards and construction supervision of a number of unjustified restrictions," Grove argues."we Dropped a huge amount of housing costs, but we would follow still, all of the standards.This does not mean DDR-level traces, but the architect's professional skill there is to design preferably."
While smartphone-based headsets are still the most accessible items on the market, the PSVR is the most affordable and user-friendly high-end VR experience you can buy.Sony will throw in a demo disc with the headset and there's more available on the PlayStation Store.These include the "Dawnguard, Hearthfire and Dragonborn" expansion packs.A follow-up to last year's Until Dawn horror game is heading to the PS VR, but it will have a completely different name to its predecessor.It's a HD virtual reality-compatible remake of the original, which was available on the Dreamcast and PS2 in the early 2000s, and a psychedelic, sensory journey.Traversing through the surreal worlds and shooting enemies in rhythm creates awe-inspiring scenes.
It has a 5.5 inch full HD display and a 16 MP camera which according DxOMarks tests should be really good. Inside, there is Mid-processor Snapdragon 617, 2-4 GB of memory and 16-64 GB of storage. Photo: Moto At the same time selected retailers also start selling the slightly stripped-down regular Moto G. It has the same screen, but a slightly less dissolved camera of 13 MP. Moto G is released as I said also in June at a slightly lower price. Photo: Moto Later in the summer is also said Moto G Play come. The battery of 2800 mAh is said to last the entire day.
Finding a job can be a struggle, but it always helps to look in the right places.Each city s ranking is based on its Glassdoor Job Score, which is determined by weighing four major factors: how easy it is to a job there, how affordable the area is, job satisfaction, and general work-life balance.Glassdoor also includes each city s median pay, median home value, and the number of current job openings.They also mention some of the jobs with the highest demand in each area.Here are the top 10:San Jose, CASan Francisco, CASeattle, WABoston, MAWashington, D.C.Austin, TXSalt Lake City, UTRaleigh-Durham, NCMinneapolis-St. Paul, MIOklahoma City, OKLast year s top city, Raleigh, has been bumped down to eighth place and replaced by San Jose, where the median base salary is $112,000.No other city on the list comes anywhere close to that.
Here s what we know... A new company, HMD Global Oy, has bought the rights to use the Nokia name.It s partnered with Foxconn – a huge Chinese company that manufactures the iPhone, among many other things – to develop, market and sell new Nokia products.We see this all the time – it s why you see cheap-as-chips Pioneer TVs that bear no resemblance to the brand s previous glories.Until proven otherwise, this deal has all the qualities of an opportunistic attempt to make some money out of a brand that has a history.The chances we ll see phones with classic Nokia features, such as PureView cameras, are slim to none.I ll be delighted if I m proved wrong, but I m not getting my hopes up.
I m not proud of my lack of political involvement, I guess I ve always told myself that given the current state of politics, a single vote wouldn t make a difference.For most Americans, every dollar counts.Uber has managed the background check process themselves, typically via a third-party, and it only takes a couple of days for a driver to be approved.For startups aimed at disrupting existing incumbents in industries that are heavily regulated, the negative impact on fundraising will be even greater.Unregulated Transportation Options are Filling the Vacuum Left By Uber and Lyft.I m sure that someone could put together a ridesharing platform that works in a limited function, but I doubt it will offer enough trips to make it worth a driver s time, affordable rides or the many accountability and safety measures provided by Uber and Lyft.
Cole MarshallCharter Communications today said it has closed its acquisitions of Time Warner Cable and Bright House Networks following approvals from the Federal Communications Commission and regulators in California, the final state that had to sign off on the deal.Charter's announcement today said, "The completion of the transactions will drive investment into the combined entity's advanced broadband network, resulting in faster broadband speeds, better video products, more affordable phone service, and more competition for consumers and businesses."Charter CEO Tom Rutledge will continue to lead the expanded company, while Time Warner Cable CEO Rob Marcus will exit, reportedly with $92 million in severance pay after two and a half years at the helm.Federal regulators imposed conditions on the deal to boost broadband competition and prevent the newly expanded Charter from trying to shut out competition from online video.Within five years, Charter is required to bring broadband of at least 60Mbps download speeds to an additional 2 million customer locations, of which 1 million must be in competition against at least one other high-speed provider.The conditions will be imposed for seven years.
Google just introduced Google Daydream — a new design for virtual reality that it hopes will beat out Facebook's Oculus as the new standard for virtual reality.Like the Samsung Gear VR, which is powered by Facebook's Oculus technology, the Google Daydream design will let you slot in a smartphone as an easy, affordable path to virtual reality.But the Gear VR only works with Samsung phones.Google is thinking a little bigger."VR should be mobile, approachable, and for everyone," executive Clay Bavor said on stage at Google's I/O developers' conference on Wednesday.Google's Daydream reference design also includes a basic motion-sensing controller.Google has already signed on Samsung, HTC, LG, Huawei, Alcatel, ZTE, Xiaomi and Asus to make phones that would work with Daydream.Since Google introduced its deceptively simple Cardboard headset back at its 2014 conference, virtual reality has turned into the next big battleground, with Facebook and Samsung all making big bets on the technology.But Facebook's Oculus headset is really expensive and Samsung's Gear only works with Samsung phones.NOW WATCH: A SpaceX rocket just did something not even its engineers thought was possibleLoading video...
Or does Zyxel s corporate focus make for consumer tech that s too unwieldy for most users?On the back of the router are four gigabit LAN ports, and a gigabit WAN port.This is nice, but the lack of USB 3.0 compatibility is a little bit disappointing from a router otherwise so focused on speed.The sidewalk in front of the house, bathed in signals from the neighbors, was weak compared to other routers we ve tested.These results mirrored the Nighthawk X4S almost perfectly, and suggest real-world bandwidth is more likely to be limited by the devices you re using than anything else.Just plug the cable from your modem into the yellow WAN port, then plug another computer into a LAN port, and finally plug it into the power supply.
The company says its focus is on making sure the experiment is "safe for everyone on the road".A Ford Fusion will be taking to the streets of Pittsburgh to "collect mapping data" and "test its self-driving capacities", though a trained driver will be present in the cars at all time.This are the first photographs released of the self-driving car, which has been spotted around the city for over a year.Uber say it's part of a mission to develop self-driving technology, saying that self-driving cars have the potential to "save millions of lives and improve quality of life for people around the world"."1.3 million people die every year in car accidents, 94 per cent of which involve human error," Uber said in a statement."In the future we believe this technology will mean less congestion, more affordable and accessible transportation and far fewer lives lost in car accidents."
There s no shortage of apps if you re trying to find an event to go to, but now it s the other side s turn.Launching today, it is designed to help organizers of events big and small keep some semblance of sanity as the crazy world of event management rages around them.The app also tackles a couple of less obvious challenges with event registrations, such as e-signing of waivers such as legal disclaimers, film / photography releases and terms and conditions.The app also packs in an offline mode, so your event doesn t come crashing down to a smoldering pile of disappointment if the Wi-Fi network takes a stage-dive into the concrete floor and sinks into unconsciousness for a few minutes.The app provides organizers and volunteers with the tools to effortlessly keep lines moving on event day, said Tressa Schultze, Product Manager at Events.com.The app is only available for Android for now, citing the availability of affordable Android devices and an advantage in speed-to-market.
The souped-up hybrid Ford Fusion will be collecting mapping data and testing its self-driving capabilities, all with a trained driver behind the wheel to monitor the car s performance.Steel City residents likely won t have any trouble recognizing the car — it s marked with the Uber logo and is outfitted with high-tech gadgets including radar sensors, laser scanners and cameras.While Uber says it s still in the early days of testing, it appears to be the first ride-hailing company to get an autonomous car on the road.Earlier this month Lyft announced a plan to have self-driving electric cars on public roads within a year, via a partnership with General Motors.And Apple s recent $1 billion investment in Chinese ride-hailing company Didi Chuxing has led to speculation about how the deal could advance Apple s secretive Project Titan self-driving car project.1.3 million people die every year in car accidents — 94% of those accidents involve human error, the company wrote in its blog post.In the future we believe this technology will mean less congestion, more affordable and accessible transportation, and far fewer lives lost in car accidents.The company says it chose Pittsburgh because of the city s strong engineering talent and research facilities — and it s an ideal environment to test the self-driving car on a variety of road types, traffic patters and weather conditions.Photo: Uber s self-driving car is hitting the road in Pittsburgh.

Today, Uber gave us a glimpse of its current self-driving car.Announced in a blog post, the car is essentially a Ford Fusion equipped with laser scanners, radar, and high resolution cameras to photograph all the places it ll go.The sensors are all aligned almost like speakers or missiles – unlike Google s street view car with a 360-degree globe-like camera up top.Uber says it will be driving in Pittsburgh to collect mapping data and test its self-driving mode.A human driver will be sitting in the car to prevent accidents should the car steer in the wrong path.In the future we believe this technology will mean less congestion, more affordable and accessible transportation, and far fewer lives lost in car accidents.The test is still in its early days so it will be a while until a self-driving Uber arrives to take you to your destinations, but expect to see the car show up in other cities soon as Uber grows its efforts.
With a slated release date of June 10 for the GTX 1070 — both the $US499 Founder s Edition and the $US379 that's around £341 and £259 respectively, sans VAT, but localised pricing is TBA third-party cards are expected on this date — the new card gives the flagship GTX 1080 at least a couple of weeks to make its way into the hands of hardcore enthusiasts and early adopters.The reason is clear: early reviews are extremely positive, but plenty of people are waiting for a more affordable card that still uses the newest-generation Pascal GPU.Here s a table demonstrating the difference between the two:SpecificationsGeForce GTX 1080GeForce GTX 1070Core Clock1607MHz1506MHzBoost Clock1733MHz1683MHzCUDA Cores25601920Texture Units160120ROPs6464Memory Clock/Type10Gbps, GDDR5X8Gbps, GDDR5Memory Bus Width256-bit256-bitMemory Capacity8GB8GBTeraflops rated 8.9 TFLOPS6.5 TFLOPSTDP Watts 180W150WFrom the broad, paper-only specs available — there are only Nvidia s numbers to work from, not even the very top-line benchmark numbers we saw at the 1080 launch — it s looking like the GeForce GTX 1070 will be around 70 to 75 per cent as powerful in raw number-crunching as the GTX 1080 is.In a very simple benchmark — Nvidia loves to talk about relative performance versus previous generation cards — the GTX 1070 returns around 1.7x the performance of last year s GTX 970 in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and 1.8x in Rise Of The Tomb Raider, as well as blowing it away by around 2.5x in VR.The new GTX 1070 uses regular GDDR5 RAM versus the 1080 s newer and faster GDDR5X, and that should mean it has slightly less overall memory bandwidth.That s still significantly lower than the $US699 £619 in the UK price of the Founder s Edition GTX 1080, though, and in terms of performance per dollar we re expecting the 1070 to be the card of choice from Nvidia s camp for this generation.
And while that is still several years away today the company to one more step in that direction, confirming it is testing its own self-driving car on the streets of Pittsburgh.The car will be collecting mapping data as well as testing its self-driving capabilities, with a trained driver in the driver s seat monitoring operations at all times."While Uber is still in the early days of our self-driving efforts, every day of testing leads to improvements," the company says."Right now we re focused on getting the technology right and ensuring it s safe for everyone on the road — pedestrians, cyclists and other drivers."Self-driving cars are generally expected to bring a number of benefits when the technology is ready for public use.From less congestion, more affordable and accessible transportation, and far fewer lives lost in car accidents.
Today marks the 15th anniversary of Apple s retail stores.Led by Steve Jobs, the Cupertino-based company opened its first two retail stores, one in Tysons Corner, Virginia and the other in Glendale, California, on May 19, 2001.A year later, Apple hired former Target marketing executive Ron Johnson who was responsible for transforming the retail store from a K-Mart clone into a trendy chain that specialized in affordable, well-designed housewares.After what was described as a few false starts, he landed on the concept of focusing on the user experience of Apple's products.That s an impressive haul when you consider the iPod hadn t even been released yet and the iPhone was still six years away.These days, Apple s retail stores make more money per square foot than any other retail location.
This system has come at a cost of one billion dollars.Each sensor has an accelerometer that measures tremors and algorithms that detect earthquakes.When an earthquake is detected a signal is sent to a server in hundredths of a second.The damage maps are sent via email to fire departments within minutes of the earthquake and are downloaded to battery-powered devices in case power is interrupted.IoT standalone sensors are augmented by Zizmos smartphone apps Zizmos eQuake that are available free-of-charge for iOS and Android.Every second that passes, thousands of messages are sent from the sensors to servers for analytics and alerting.
Google's projects have been dominating headlines about self-driving car research for some time now, but it's Uber's turn to make an official announcement.After months of discussing plans on its own efforts to enter the autonomous vehicle game, the ride-sharing company has revealed the first official photo of its self-driving car.Like other self-driving cars, Uber's is loaded with equipment including laser scanners, radar, and high-resolution cameras, much of which is visible on top the vehicle.While tests will include autonomous driving, a human driver will still be behind the wheel at all times.Uber says that collecting mapping data is another component of its tests, along with "ensuring it s safe for everyone on the road — pedestrians, cyclists and other drivers."Uber's announcement doesn't give a roadmap for when riders might be picked up with a self-driving fleet of vehicles, but it notes that it's vision for the technology includes "less congestion, more affordable and accessible transportation, and far fewer lives lost in car accidents."
