It will let users add live-updating spreadsheets to documentsCredit: QuipQuip, a Silicon Valley startup that s taking on the giants of the productivity software market, announced a major update to its spreadsheet capabilities Wednesday that s aimed at bringing its service more in line with Microsoft Excel.The service s spreadsheets now include features like the ability to merge cells, validate data and filter information in a sheet.These updates are key to helping Quip compete with its biggest rivals in the cloud productivity suite space: Microsoft s Office 365 and Google Apps for Work.That means the executive summary of a report can have the same data in a spreadsheet table and in a paragraph, because they re linked together.Taylor estimates they make up 80 percent to 90 percent of the users in a company.Of course, Quip s competitors aren t standing still.

At its Google I/O developer conference, Google today is launching new tools that will make it easier for developers to have their apps do things with spreadsheets inside Google Sheets and presentations in Google Slides.Slides now has its own dedicated application programming interface API , and there is a second, more powerful Sheets API.This will not affect the existing Sheets API.The new Sheets API gives developers programmatic access to nearly all of the features a user can access in the Sheets web and mobile interfaces, Google Sheets product manager Tom Holman wrote in a blog post.The new Sheets API is available now, and the Slides API will come out in the next few months, Holman wrote.The enhancements make sense as Microsoft has been ramping up its Microsoft Graph for accessing data from Office 365 applications like Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, OneDrive, and OneNote.The new API functionality isn t all that s new with Google Apps for developers.When the underlying data in the spreadsheet changes, an updated chart in the presentation is just one click away, Holman wrote.The corresponding functionality in Microsoft s Office applications is taking Excel charts and sticking them in Word or PowerPoint.People have been able to do both those things for a while.
The new newsletter hub, founder and CEO Jonathan Abrams told me, offers a rapid newsletter-building tool through which authors can select recommended content from your or your friends Nuzzel news feeds, plus they can add stories from other sources and some commentary.To build a subscription list, creators can import contacts from such sources as a Gmail or LinkedIn account, or from an Excel CSV file, after which invitations are sent out.In its announcement, Nuzzel pointed to a McKinsey & Company report that email newsletters receive as much as 40 times the engagement of Facebook posts or Twitter tweets.Some newsletters can grow large subscriber lists, like news summary theSkimm, with more than 1.5 million readers, or actress/author Lena Dunham and director/writer Jenni Konner s Lenny Letter, with 400,000.At launch, this network of newsletters won t actually offer any network effects, Abrams said, as those will be added when a critical mass of titles develops.The new hub is primarily intended as a tool for people to promote themselves, he said, such as influencers, business people or journalists.
2016 Chevrolet Colorado Z71Broadly speaking, new 4x4s are less capable off the beaten path than they were ten years ago.That s because rugged, body-on-frame SUVs are quickly going extinct, and car-based crossovers reign supreme.While crossovers are more comfortable and usually markedly more efficient than traditional SUVs, the most challenging terrain they re designed to conquer is a dirt road.All is not lost if you re planning on hitting the backcountry.There are still several great off-roaders on the market, including a handful that were designed specifically to excel when the going gets tough.Check out the ten best off-roaders on the market today, hand-picked by Digital Trends car experts.

With Episode VIII a year and a half away, leaks and spoilers are all we re going to hear about for awhile.This is almost guaranteed to be fake, but in the minuscule, minuscule chance that it isn t...Over the past few days, a video posted to Reddit claiming to show a poster revealing the title of Episode VIII, set up for the incoming Star Wars convention Celebration Europe in London, has been making the rounds.The title, it claims, is Star Wars: Fall of the Resistance.The star field of the poster looks really weird, stamped with the same repeated pattern of two stars all over it.If you look at the calendar for the ExCel Center, where the convention is going to be held, you can see it s pretty packed with stuff that s not Star Wars between now and then.But for now, we re pretty confident in saying that this is a whole steaming pile of Bantha poodoo.
Businesses spend countless hours trying to figure out how to improve the productivity of their workers even by a fraction of a percent.Traditional tech buying cycles usually take into account base units and input peripherals, but displays are left out of the equation because they still work and are a pain to move around and refurbish.The business advantages derived from multiple displays are well documented: Bill Gates and the late Terry Pratchett were well-known advocates, but rolling multiple displays across hundreds of desktops is not an easy task as it can be quite disruptive if the installation requires dedicated monitor stands.You can now find monitors sporting that resolution for around £300 and even less if you opt for a 4K TV set and a growing number of laptops - such as those with DisplayPort or HDMI 2.0 - can connect to them natively.A much higher pixel count translates into more being displayed onto the screen, which can give you more than 5,200 spreadsheet cells in Microsoft Excel and the ability to display four A4 sheets side by side in Microsoft Word.Want 4K as soon as possible?
It s a convenient moniker but also confusing because there isn t one trend to follow.In Slack, for example, bots have been built for fetching Digg content , ordering an Uber transportation , pulling data from Google Analytics data , and more.This model is powerful, and represents a massive battleground.Continued advances in machine learning are just about guaranteed, and if we couple that with APIs everywhere to interconnect services, we could very well deliver on the sci-fi promise of intelligent assistants.Instead, it will be more transactional: I need new pillows Hilton , I m looking for a camera Best Buy , or I m at the corner of 2nd and Harrison Uber .As the reality of human afterall becomes possible, companies that excel at conversation will drive higher customer satisfaction, engagement, and retention.Jeff Lawson is CEO and cofounder of Twilio.

After months of speculation and anticipation, Nvidia s latest piece of hardware you put in your computer to make things look pretty is here.It s capable of being overclocked I ve gotten it up to 2GHz fiddling about with the EVGA Precision tool provided to reviewers , but it won t ship that way.Apparently I need to spend several hundred dollars to upgrade to the advanced edition.Note that I had a ton of other stuff running at the same time, which probably skewed the results a little lower, but my results are within a few points of others I ve seen, so I trust them.The data was then entered into Excel, formatted as a chart, pasted into PowerPoint and then saved as an image.Comparatively, I wouldn t even bother trying with my old GTX 980, which Nvidia loves to compare its latest card to.
Since the whole world moved over from the original DDR memory, timings have come to play second fiddle to bandwidth and capacity.Fortunately we don t need to go out there and do the testing ourselves — the guys at TechSpot have already conducted some pretty thorough testing, and the results are illuminating to say the least.For its benchmarking session, TechSpot took five different speed memory kits, beginning at 2,133MHz and finishing up at the 4,000MHz mark, testing them alongside a pair of GTX 980 Ti graphics cards and a Core i7-6700K processor — so the CPU and GPU certainly won t be bottlenecking the memory.Photoshop, Excel, and Handbrake all showed big performance improvements from using the faster memory, in some cases by as much as 57 percent.While certainly processors and graphics card upgrades are almost always going to be the most effective way to improve your frame rates, games like ARMA III saw a 10 percent FPS improvement when opting for 4,000MHz memory over the 2,133MHz counterpart.The conclusion from the testing would suggest that if you already have a strong processor and graphics card, but are running slow, or suffer from low-quality memory, you might be handicapping your system more than you think.
You might not have heard of Automated Insights before, but chances are you ve probably seen what its software can do.The company has developed Wordsmith, which is essentially AI that can write human-sounding reports from raw numerical data, such as financial reports and sales forecasts.Available from today in beta for free, the plugin comes with an ExplainIt feature that can automatically generate descriptive captions for charts and graphs, making it easier to interpret your data.It works just like any spreadsheet formula: select your data visualization and hit the ExplainIt button, and Wordsmith will automatically generate a description you can place on your spreadsheet or embed right into your chart.The templates let you define how Wordsmith should interpret your data, what words it should use to describe things like rising and falling figures and which parameters it should focus on, such as average sales or median prices.And if you re using it in Microsoft Office, you can export those descriptions in other apps like PowerPoint and have them update on-the-fly.
Microsoft takes another swing at Google's productivity suite with the new featureA new Skype for Business integration makes it possible for users to hold live chats to discuss documents stored in OneDrive for Business and SharePoint Online.Microsoft's attempts to catch up with Google in the online collaboration space took a step forward Wednesday, when the company announced that it's giving business users live chat in Office Online.When more than one person is working on a shared document inside Word, Excel, OneNote or PowerPoint Online, they'll see a chat button show up in the Web app's toolbar.The chats aren't designed to replace traditional document collaboration tools like leaving comments and tracking changes, but they can help a team of people all looking at the same document to better work together in a more rapid-fire way.It's a feature that has been core to Google's Docs productivity suite for quite some time, and this update means that businesses using Office 365 have another reason to consider sticking with Microsoft rather than switching to one of its competitors.Microsoft has recently rolled out a number of other updates to Office, including new watch face support in Outlook on Android Wear and the launch of SharePoint for iOS, which the company announced earlier this month.
The company has been encouraging users of older operating systems to upgrade to the latest version, despite Windows 7 and 8 still being supported and many users wanting to remain on earlier software.Since Windows 10 is now labelled as a recommended update by Microsoft, Windows users who have security upgrades automatically enabled are receiving pop-up alerts saying that their PCs have updates scheduled.The new Start menu is split in two, with a list of commonly used applications and settings on the left hand side and Windows 8-style "live tiles" on the right, optimised for touch-based computing.There is now a button on the taskbar that gives you a zoomed-out view of all the apps you have running, and lets you select the one you want or create multiple virtual desktops.With the free Windows 10 upgrade offer ending on July 29, we want to help people upgrade to the best version of Windows, it said.1985: Windows 1: The first version introduced programs like Paint that are still in use1987: Windows 2: New graphical applications like Word and Excel proved popular1990: Windows 3: A leap forward in visual terms, it was also a commercial success1993: Windows NT: An enterprise-oriented version of Windows designed for servers and workstations1995: Windows 95: Many people's first foray into Windows introduced the Start Menu and Taskbar1998: Windows 98: The first Windows to come bundled with Internet Explorer2000: Windows 2000: Designed as a new alternative to NT for businesses2000: Windows ME: "Millennium Edition" was widely derided as a poor stopgap until XP was released2001: Windows XP: Possibly Microsoft's most successful OS ever, support was only officially ended in 20142007: Windows Vista: This long-awaited update had many security and performance flaws and set Microsoft back years2009: Windows 7: Microsoft put a lot of effort into improving on Vista, with 7 well received2012: Windows 8: Designed for tablets and mobile as well as PCs, it controversially got rid of the Start Menu2015: Windows 10: Pitched as Microsoft's last version of Windows, it introduces a new browser, Edge
Philip K. Dick s science fiction short story, The Minority Report, foresaw a future in which prescient mutants can predict and prevent crimes, and help the Precrime division apprehend criminals before any crime is committed.And how precise must a prediction method be?An Israeli startup may help us answer at least some of these questions with their facial personality profiling software, which they claim can identify terrorists, academics, professional poker players, and pedophiles by facial features alone.Supported by computer vision and machine learning technology, Faception has catalogued various classifiers that their software uses to analyze character, behavior, and personality traits with a high level of accuracy.How accurate?The software identified four players who would excel – two of whom made it to the final three.
The first magazine cover story I ever wrote, for MacUser, was a web browser shootout between the incumbent, Netscape, and a scrappy upstart called Internet Explorer.I wrote that IE was the better browser, which was quite a controversial statement in the days when Windows 95 Macintosh 89 buttons were in wide circulation.I also thought the Google I/O keynote last week was the best one I ve seen–disciplined and focused in a way previous I/O keynotes weren t. But some of the stuff Microsoft pulled in the 1990s was awful, and made users angry.Then came 1993, and something funny happened: Microsoft released new versions of Microsoft Office for the Mac, all based on the Windows code base.In any event, users rebelled, sticking with old versions of Word and Excel for years, or finding alternatives.I don t know the reason–arrogance, pride, or a lack of desire to do the extra work are all options–but for a while now, Google has insisted on using the Material Design approach when creating iOS apps.
