Streaming video may be what Netflix is best known for, but now the company also offers a tool for checking the speed of your personal internet connection.You don t have to be a Netflix member to use the website, nor does it throw any ads at you.You literally just go to the website and wait for it to quickly report its findings.When you re experiencing streaming issues, fast.com allows you to check the download speeds you re getting from your Internet service provider, wrote David Fullagar, Netflix s vice president of content delivery architecture, in a blog post published today.While they re certainly useful, the company s motives in launching them are likely not 100 percent altruistic.Plus, the tool may inspire users to opt for faster internet, which would in turn improve their streaming experience — and thus their Netflix satisfaction.
Netflix really wants to show you how fast or slow your Internet connection is, and to do so it has launched a new website at Fast.com that conveys the real-time speed of your connection to the Web — it s designed to give people greater insight and control of their Internet service.It looks like Netflix procured the Fast.com domain last month and, according to a filing with the United States Patent and Trademark Office USPTO , it s in the midst of trademarking the Fast logo.It works globally, on mobile Internet or domestic broadband, and it displays the speed of your connection, in megabits-per-second, at any given moment.The launch comes just a few weeks after Netflix introduced new cellular data controls to let users tweak the quality of their video streams, so that those on patchier connections can select lower-quality streams.Fast.com does seem like a random product on the surface, especially given the myriad of existing speed-test tools online, but Netflix wanted something of its own, that works in real-time, and which is devoid of any annoying distractions such as ads and other bells-and-whistles.Netflix s new speedtest tool actually links directly to Speedtest.net to allow you to compare the results and we can confirm they are accurate .We all want a faster, better Internet, yet Internet speeds vary greatly and can be affected by other users on your network or congestion with your Internet service provider, said David Fullagar, vice president of content delivery architecture at Netflix, in a blog post.Using Netflix servers, fast.com works like other globally available tools including speedtest.net, and the results should be similar in most cases.
REUTERS/Mike Blake Reuters - United Parcel Service Inc, the world's largest package delivery company, said on Wednesday it will expand the 3D printing services provided through its UPS Stores to create an on-demand manufacturing network starting this summer.Atlanta-based UPS and SAP SE also announced a partnership in which Europe's largest software company will provide supply chain solutions to help manufacturers get products to market more quickly and at a lower cost."Speed is critical to us and we see tremendous value" in extending SAP's capabilities further down the supply chain via UPS, said John Dulchinos, vice president for strategic capabilities at contract manufacturer Jabil Circuit Inc, in a telephone interview with Reuters.UPS already offers 3D printing services using ABSplus, an industrial grade thermoplastic, at more than 60 UPS Stores around the United States.Under the new system, customers will be able to upload digital designs to First Radius, a company specializing in 3D printing in which UPS holds a minority stake.IDC Research Inc analyst Robert Parker said the network will bring UPS only modest benefits at first because 3D printers have limited capabilities at present and few printable materials available.
Barclaycard research claims that managing returns is damaging profits for many British online businessesBritish online retailers are bearing the brunt of improved customer service, according to new research that found free return policies may be causing businesses to lose profits.Overall, nearly six in ten 57 percent of retailers said that dealing with the day-to-day cost of dealing with returns is negatively impacting their business, with one in five 20 percent even admitting to increasing prices to try and counteract the cost of returns.And more than a fifth 22 per cent of current high-street retailers are choosing not to sell online, because they are concerned about being able to afford the costs of managing the delivery and returns process.Time to changeonline shoppingThese solutions are grating against consumer habits, Barclaycard warns, as 30 percent of shoppers admitted to deliberately over-purchasing and subsequently returning unwanted items, safe in the knowledge they will be able to benefit from a range of quick and easy returns such as hourly courier services and local drop-off points.A similar proportion would like retailers to introduce technology to help them better visualise an item when shopping online, such as the ability to virtually try on clothing after uploading an image of themselves – a system currently being trialled by several big-name retailers.Today s time-pressed shopper expects the process to be fast, easy and free – and that applies to both buying goods as well as returning them, said Sharon Manikon, director of customer solutions at Barclaycard global payment acceptance.
Executives at restaurant food delivery startup Deliveroo may have felt a chill down their spine on Tuesday as Amazon announced tentative steps to move in on their territory by launching a restaurant food delivery service over the pond in Manhattan, New York.Deliveroo is arguably the best-known restaurant food delivery company in the UK but one of the startup's early employees is aware that there are other companies eyeing up the space it operates in.Last Wednesday, before Amazon announced it was going to deliver food from 350 eateries across Manhattan, Dan Warne, Deliveroo's managing director for the UK and Ireland, told Business Insider: "I m sure there will be some much bigger fish who consider entering the market at some point.But we feel we re in a very good position."Deliveroo, founded by former investment banker Will Shu and Greg Orlowski in 2012, pays a fleet of riders to pick up food from restaurants and deliver it to customers at their homes and offices."Restaurants don t necessarily have a back entrance to handle drivers or a second kitchen to handle deliveries," explained Warne.Warne said Deliveroo plans to put the RooBoxes in areas where there isn t necessarily high footfall.Tommi's first started using the RooBox in February.Tommi's manager Robert Magnusson told Business Insider that the RooBox has allowed Tommi's to test new markets and expand with low financial risk and overheads.The results of the test will be based around how drivers feedback on it.

But that didn't stop some homeowners and business owners telling the BBC this month that the lycra-clad groups, typically made up of males in their twenties and thirties, are becoming a bit of a nuisance.Stephen Foster, a bookseller from Chiswick, told the BBC that he calls the gathering close to his shop "the Deliveroost.We're a retail business and what you want is people to feel comfortable walking past your shop and going into it.Otherwise that customer gets exceptionally upset about that inability to order and the restaurant likewise if they cook food and there isn t a driver to pick it up.As order volumes get much larger, they become more predictable and less volatile, allowing us to staff drivers at more of an exact level vs. that order volume.We work with our consumer base themselves to give us feedback on where they see things like that.They represent our brand, they go into the restaurants.Its really important they re the right type of person so consequently, while there may have been an article about riders congregating together, you ll see in the article there is nothing that stipulates they have done anything wrong, which is why it s quite interesting that it was a BBC News at 10 article.We re going to act on it and take it seriously but it s going to happen, it s human nature.NOW WATCH: Bumble founder: Men should stop putting these 4 things in their profilesLoading video...
Shutting down the internet is an efficient way of discouraging internet-based cheating – but the move has been criticised by human rights campaigners.Photograph: Ghaith Abdul-Ahad/Getty ImagesIraq has been turning off the internet across the country to stop children cheating in exams.May 16, 20163rd 3hr blackout in 3 days as Iraq continues attempts to block cheating on exams.While attempting to ban mobile phones from exams or setting up local jamming equipment might be a less draconian measure, shutting off the internet is undoubtedly efficient.Last year it performed similar blackouts at exam times, as well as attempting to take areas controlled by Isis offline to help shut down the spread of propaganda.Other countries including Iran and China have implemented strong censorship, while the UK and other countries block access to certain sites linked to piracy at the ISP level.

Fast forward to today and Hnetinka has teamed up with JustVacay founder Wilson Lee to launch Darkstore, a delivery fulfillment platform for e-commerce brands that is already powering same-day delivery for mattress startup Tuft & Needle.Darkstore works by exploiting excess capacity in storage facilities, malls and bodegas and enables them to be fulfillment centers with just a smartphone, Hnetinka told me.Uber is the largest transportation company that doesn t own a car Airbnb is the largest hospitality business that doesn t own a hotel, Hnetinka said.For deliveries, Darkstore partners with Berkeley, Calif.-based Axle Hire, which charges $5 per delivery for small items and $10 per delivery for something like a mattress.The dark store concept has not yet been brought to the U.S., Hnetinka said, and Darkstore wants to democratize it.Our box is really convenient, but it s still a size that most last mile delivery companies can t deliver economically.
