Unlike the Greek sorceress it resembles in name, Midea Group 000333 -2.06 % doesn t have to be a prophet to realize it can no longer rest on cheap Chinese labor and low-end technology.That s why this top Chinese appliance manufacturer is willing to splash out for a German robotics giant.The offer looks unsolicited, suggesting Midea wants Kuka more than the other way around.Part of this is the natural result of China s rising wages in the past five years, especially in well-off Guangdong province, where Midea is based.That s richer than the 28 times a basket of 13 global peers trade at, and far richer than Midea s own 10 times.For investors who can access Midea s mainland Chinese shares, the stock could rally as Midea signals its intent to improve its technology.

Swedish developer Starbreeze might be putting a large portion of its eggs in the VR basket, but the company is still making an effort to develop more traditional games.But this is now a thing of the past: Starbreeze has acquired full rights to the series from publisher 505 Games, and in addition to the announcement of a third game, Payday 2 will no longer feature microtransactions.No release date was given, and we wouldn t expect any more news on the project for at least another year, as Starbreeze and subsidiary developer Overkill are committed to supporting Payday 2 until the end of 2017.This doesn t affect haggling on the Steam marketplace, however, as producer Almir Listo emphasizes that this is completely controlled by the players.Your prices, supply, and demand will still continue to shape the Payday 2 marketplace, Listo says.This change comes several months after public outrage following the implementation of the microtransactions — several years after the game was released- but it s better late than never.

"When Schaefer joined the startup three and a half years ago, it was making 4,000 deliveries per month.The second was spent creating partnerships with larger brands, like Starbucks and Apple, to broaden the types of deliveries Postmates couriers could make.Currently, Postmates — which has traditionally been priced like a luxury product it can cost nearly $10 to get a bagel delivered — is focused on bringing new, cheaper delivery options to the masses.The Postmates Plus program, which launched in 2015, allows users to get same-day deliveries for a flat $3.99 plus a 9% service fee from about 4,000 partnering stores.Her team of 15 spends a lot of time crunching numbers and playing with levers, like minimum basket sizes and delivery distance radiuses, to make sure of that."We were never spending recklessly, and we are always trying to figure out how to get the most out of each dollar," she adds.Schaefer sees Plus Unlimited subscriptions with their lack of delivery fees and service fees  as key to making Postmates a financially viable way of delivering anything and everything — like Prime was for Amazon when it was just a book retailer.The focus has always been much more around commerce and making your entire city available to you.

Yet it soon sprang back to life, as when the Black Knight from The Holy Grail quipped Tis but a scratch!As a student and teacher of media studies, I m well aware of the McLuhan-esque concept that technologies are extensions of our bodies and minds.The problem, she tells me, is that we re usually worrying about what s new and spectacular about each one, and we forget about our pre-existing social problems.Answer: possibly It s worth remembering, as Lynn Clark pointed out a while back, that horror films reflect deep-seated concerns originating in American culture s distinct brand of evangelical Protestantism: themes of evil, death, and possible salvation.Picture Steve Jobs backstage with a team of code-savvy midwives, cheering the arrival of an iPhone he d spawned from his own flesh before ushering him onto the stage at MacWorld 2007.As Sherry Turkle notes, the Internet is still in its baby stages.

Bronze, cast iron, pewter, and wood are all on the list, as are some plastics, like the kind you find in takeout containers.Without food, the enzymes have nothing to latch onto, says P If you scrape off the big chunks of cheese but leave the residue, the combination of hot water and detergent should soften, then clear away the stuck-on food.Skipping the pre-rinsing also saves water and time.Speaking of, many dishwashers let you adjust the height of this rack, so you can safely nestle taller wine glasses, for example.Arrange the dirtiest, carb-covered dishes in a circle, like the dishwasher s spray arms, and put dishes with protein stains, such as those from eggs, around the edges of the dishwasher.The latter need more time to soak up the detergent, while the spaghetti-encrusted plates get the benefit of a more direct jet of water.
Those were the good old days.If I could roll back the clock four or five years, I d do things differently.Set ground rulesWhen someone gets the keys to their first car, they can go wherever they want to go, but they do have to follow the rules of the road.Since it s impossible to set ground rules with a toddler for whom logic is an utterly foreign concept, try keeping track of how often you hand them your iPhone or iPad and for how long they have it.Make the proposition more attractive for everyone by picking up a multiport USB charging device and snaking the charging cables into the basket.You can teach your children that the smartphone and tablet represent a just single source of content and entertainment.

Might be best if you've done some maths other than mentally adding up the price of your shopping basket in the last 20 years.This one's quite easy -- Ben can assume none of them listen to music, instead listening to the autotuned rants of their favourite YouTuber.American Psycho has loads of mean words in it on every page, but To Kill a Mockingbird has hardly any.It might as well be Elon Musk asking how much petrol his spaceship needs to get to Mars.Guess 6.2/100 and hope for a half because it looks right.Doesn't everyone just Google the answers anyway these days, mumbling questions into Bluetooth mics hidden in their ties then writing down what their watch says?
