It's due for release in the Fall, and going by previous iOS launches that means early-mid September, which is conveniently the same time we expect the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus to rear their heads.This has been the pattern for the past few years of iPhone releases, which means we'd bet our house on this being the case in 2016.Coming this SeptemberWith iOS 10 sporting a 'Fall' release date, that all but cements the iPhone 7 release date for the same time.Usually how things work is the iPhone is announced during the second week of the month, and goes on sale the following week.iPhone 7: the remote to your lifeApple's resurrecting its Apple TV remote app with iOS 10 and it's baking in HomeKit control into the Control Center, allowing you to adjust lights, shutters, garage doors, intercom systems and security cameras all from the palm of your hand.We can see additional life control features through new sensors that are exclusive to Apple's newest handset – encouraging those with older devices to upgrade.
Frenzied volume Friday in LinkedIn Corp. options before its acquisition by Microsoft Corp. reflected spread trades that probably ended badly for their owner.About 2,200 lots that changed hands in four series of out-of-the-money puts and calls Friday appeared to have been legs in a strategy known as a broken wing iron condor that would ve lost money after LinkedIn surged 47 percent today, according to Jim Smith, an options strategist at OTR Global Trading LLC.What ties the positions together is their timing: four trades -- two each of 600 bearish puts and two of 500 bullish calls -- all occurred at 1:40:39 p.m. on Friday.The hodgepodge of bets represented by the package, in which some contracts were sold, others bought, resulted in a profitability threshold that couldn t withstand today s rally, Smith said.
Some may have feared the device might already have been forgotten by Apple, but that s anything but the case.For those who would still rather work that way, a new and improved Apple TV Remote app for iPhone will allow text entry with the keyboard, in addition to supporting the gyroscope and accelerometer for playing games.The company announced Monday that 12 channels from Viacom, including Comedy Central, BET, Spike, MTV, and Nick Jr., are coming to both its single-stream service and multistream beta, while content from FXX, Nat Geo WILD, and FS2 are coming to the multistream core service.As for other programming, Fox Sports Go is planned to arrive this summer, in addition to more than 100 live channels coming later this month.Other changes include a new dark mode for better viewing in dark rooms, and the ability for entertainment apps downloaded on your phone to automatically download on your Apple TV.The preview of the forthcoming tvOS is available to developers now, with the new features coming to everyone this fall.

Image credit: Carlos Dattoli, all artwork used with permission of the artist.When the official uniforms for next years Power Rangers movie were first revealed, fans were surprised at just how Iron-Man-esque the latest teenagers with attitude were looking.It was a decidedly mixed reaction to be sure—but what would it have been like if these fan-imagined suits had been revealed instead?This brilliant bit of redesign work comes from artist Carlos Dattoli, who recently shared them online, and they re a brilliant compromise between modern costume design and paying homage to the iconic looks of the original Rangers.But the suits themselves are much more faithful to the classic incarnations: the right colours if a bit muted , helmets that are way more in line with the originals, and streamlined suits that, while still borrowing from the modern costume design approach of hyper detail and heavy texturing, are closer to the classic spandex than they are Marvel s Iron Avenger.In an alternate reality where these are the movie designs, there d probably still be complaints—this is, after all, the internet—but I bet reaction wouldn t have been anywhere near as mixed.
Any major job promotion can be considered an act of faith—a gamble that the recipient eventually will make the effort and money worthwhile.LinkedIn s trailing 12-month revenue is less than 4% of Microsoft s. Rather, Microsoft thinks that adding a professional social network to its portfolio of business-focused software offerings will create a new class of opportunities that will help the company further wean itself from its legacy on personal computers.It is certainly less dicey than buying a dwindling mobile-phone business, or trying to buy a shrinking internet portal.Still, buying LinkedIn is a gamble and no bargain.Microsoft says it will fund the deal primarily with new debt, which will bring down its net cash balance further.But, chances are it will get the job done.

Microsoft will pay $196 per LinkedIn share, a 50% premium to LinkedIn s closing price on Friday.Shares of LinkedIn, which had dropped 42% so far this year through Friday s close, jumped 47% to $192.95.That could increase the value of Office to customers, and helps explain why Microsoft made the deal.It s worth the bet.As the LinkedIn and Office engagement grows, new opportunities will be created for monetization, Mr. Nadella said.About two-thirds of LinkedIn s revenue comes from its talent-solutions division, which helps corporate recruiters identify job candidates, in contrast to other social networks that primarily rely on advertising revenue.
Nothing strange so long as the information is handled safely, he writes in a blog. So if you want to find a neighbor's link, go bet. But a small storm clouds appear in the sky. It is the second time in a week that security highlighted deficiencies in Messenger. According to a message he got from this is the problem, he discovered the already well-documented and conscious behavior. He also says that it certainly can be useful app and web developers.
Symantec, which has lost momentum since the company was parceled into two, that is divided into Symantec and Veritas, is now making a big bet. This attköpa by web security vendor Blue Coat for 4.65 billion dollars, equivalent to almost 39 billion. Big deal is expected to be fully completed in the third quarter. Symantec has namely during the last month of markets led by an acting president, Ajei Gopal. This after former CEO Michael Brown left the company in April because of the weak financial performance. The deal means that Symantec hotbevakningssystem will be combined with Blue Coat network and cloud security.
Following its big announcement at Google I/O 2016 last month, Android Wear 2.0 has been revealed to not be coming to some of the platform's earliest devices, including the original Moto 360 watch.The lack of compatibility was confirmed by the Motorola Support Twitter account.The reasoning is likely simple: just like aging smartphones, the first-generation Moto 360 can't meet the performance demands of Android Wear 2.0.Owners of the original Moto 360 can at least take comfort in knowing that the device will still receive "essential" security patches when needed.As for version 2.0 of Android Wear itself, some of the new flagship features include improved smart reply options, third-party watch faces and complications, and, bizarrely enough, even an on-screen keyboard.The new smartwatch OS is currently available as a developer preview, but is due for final release this fall.
Mercedes eventually went on to produce very limited and very expensive special editions, such as the incredible six-wheeled G63 AMG 6 6, with its truly all-terrain capabilities.The G550 4 4 which, if you're curious, is said as "four by four squared" — and if by math is correct, would actually make it the "four by sixteen," but that's just a silly name for a car was first released in Europe last November.When it arrives in the US in early 2017, it will be sporting 17.2 inches of ground clearance, and a 4.0-liter Biturbo V-8 engine that produces 416 horsepower and 450 lb-ft of torque.In the event drivers need to go off-road on the way to pick up groceries, they'll have nothing to worry about, as the G550 4 4 's suspension includes dual springs and dual dampers at each wheel, two stabilizer bars, and while it comes with a measly two axles, they're both military-grade.Three feet of water won't even make this German SUV pause.Mercedes hasn't announced the final pricing, but since the G550 4 4 is a tier above the more "reasonable" AMG G65, which costs around $218,000, you can bet it will include more than a few zeros.
Once viewed as an imperialist tech superpower, Microsoft is now considered a gentle giant willing to partner up with anyone and everyone.From releasing more Android and iPhone apps, to making its flagship technologies available on competing platforms like Linux, Microsoft is much more open than it used to be.Those rumors dovetail nicely with Nadella's broader ambitions.Microsoft sees Windows 10, which came to the Xbox One console in late 2015, as a single platform for every kind of device — PCs, tablets, phones, virtual reality, and, yes, video game consoles — so your apps and data can follow you everywhere and anywhere.It was originally pitched as an all-in-one multimedia device, combining movies and TV with video games — an idea that was met with disdain by its core gamer demographic, who demanded a more dedicated video games machine.Microsoft compounded the error with unclear communication on whether or not the Xbox One would function without an internet connection, which was meant as an anti-piracy measure.And so, there's a concern as to whether or not putting Windows on the Xbox might overcomplicate what's been a very straightforward, plug-and-play way to game.Worse, gamers are wary that the Xbox One could just become more like a generic PC, drifting away from its focus on gaming to fulfill Microsoft's relentless push to put Windows 10 everywhere.The bigger pictureTo preemptively deflect charges of getting away from gaming, expect Microsoft to keep hammering its message of more-games-everywhere.After all, even when Sony releases a new, more powerful version of the PlayStation 4 later this year, it's still limited to PlayStation 4 games, and PlayStation 4 developers, and PlayStation 4 owners.
"The company added that when customers have issues with their car, even if not caused by the car itself say you drove down a muddy road and got stuck, for example , Tesla will cover the repairs to see if they can learn anything about their vehicles.In these instances, they will ask customers to sign a "goodwill agreement" that prevents these gratis repairs from being used against them in court.Fine.In its blog, though, Tesla went a step further and all but implied that Niedermeyer and others discussing potential issues surrounding the company are really just motivated by potential financial gains from a decline in Tesla's stock price.Tesla is blaming short sellersShort selling is a bet that a stock's price will fall, and Tesla's tactic of blaming those who stand to gain from your financial distress for the fact that you are experiencing that distress in the first place has a long and storied tradition in financial markets."Ken Lay, the founder of Enron, also blamed short sellers for the company's eventual collapse, and later in 2008 Dick Fuld, then the CEO of the now bankrupt investment bank Lehman Brothers, did the same.Earlier this year, Valeant Pharmaceuticals asked the Securities and Exchange Commission to investigate short seller Andrew Left, who had raised issues about some of the company's accounting practices, only to have the SEC turn its gaze to Valeant.Just as blaming your partner for a failed relationship and not owning your even "minor" mistakes amplifies your wrongdoing, accusing those critical of your business or accounting practices of merely being in it for the money is to miss the point of their exercise and invite further scrutiny.Niedermeyer's colleague Bertel Schmitt, however, told Business Insider's Matt DeBord in an email: "The only shorts I have are the ones between me and my chair."The risk Tesla runs here, again, is to merely heighten existing questions the company faces in the marketplace.In his interview with the FT, Chanos said that from a portfolio-construction standpoint, a short seller allows those betting stocks will go up to be more long, as a good short fund can hedge out potential losses in a downturn.
