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.
He said: "We appreciate and respect that there are a range of reasons that motivate people on both sides of the debate, but as a business that is very committed to this country, our view is that the UK should remain in the EU.The company employs over 5,000 people and works with 25,000 businesses.However, the company indicated that it will not stop operations in the UK if the country votes in favour of Brexit.At the same time, Hewlett Packard Enterprise UK managing director Andy Isherwood sent a note to the staff, saying that the UK should remain in the EU.Last month, IBM UK boss David Stokes said in an internal blog to staff, "As a large, globally integrated business with a strong presence across the EU, IBM sees significant benefits from EU economic integration.techUK polled 277 tech business leaders, three-quarters of which were SMEs, and identified a clear majority for the In camp.
Subscription TV providers Mediacom Communications and Time Warner shared last place with a score of 51 out of a possible 100.The same is being done with Bright House Networks LLC, which Charter purchased in conjunction with Time Warner for $10.4 billion.David VanAmburg, ACSI s managing director, said it s not surprising that Charter wants to rebrand Time Warner as it has scored better than Time Warner in recent years.It won t be a cakewalk, however, as VanAmburg said data suggests leaps-and-bounds improvement could be difficult.The announcement came shortly after Comcast dropped its proposed $45 billion merger with Time Warner due to regulator pushback.The failed merger ultimately cost the two companies more than half a billion dollars.
Hewlett Packard Enterprise CEO Meg Whitman is so serious about pushing HPE into the world of corporate venture investing, that she is personally involved with the program, reports Bloomberg's Brian Womack.HPE intends to invest $100 million in 2016, its second year of its program, which HPE calls "Pathfinder," Lak Ananth, the program's managing director told Womack.And although the investment group currently employs 10 people, and expects to be at 15 later this year, this project is very much Whitman's baby.Startups have to pitch to the billionaire CEO personally at quarterly "coffees with Meg" before HPE signs off on deals.She was, for instance, personally involved in HPE's investment in Mesosphere, a hot cloud startup that reportedly turned down a $150 million acquisition offer from Microsoft.Instead it stayed independent and raised another $73.5 million led by this HP ventures unit, raising about $122 million to date, with a reported valuation of over $1 billion .HPE's didn't just throw money at Mesosphere, it's also giving the startup access to the company's enormous sales force and partner network, she says.This gives Mesosphere many of the benefits of being acquired by a bigger company, while allowing it to stay on its own.Joining the clubIt was, apparently, Whitman's direct involvement that encouraged Mesosphere to go with HPE's funding, CEO Florian Leibert told Womack, who describes Whitman as "really responsive.Although she's had a storied career growing eBay, was a "strategic advisor" to VC Kleiner Perkins, and been on the boards of other startups like Zipcar, she's not known for her angel investing.She has no AngelList profile and Crunchbase only lists a single personal investment she's made, into startup factory Expa, founded by Uber and StumbleUpon cofounder Garrett Camp.Whitman isn't looking for HPE to become a big VC and make a killing on its investments, though she doesn't want to lose money.Instead, it's a way for HPE in general, and Whitman in particular, to keep tabs on the startup world, and get a stake in hot technologies without having to acquire every company outright, she says.NOW WATCH: How to see everything Google knows about youLoading video...
The federation of service providers and software vendors will begin stocking its virtual shelves from June 7Xavier Poisson, Hewlett Packard Enterprise's vice president for hybrid IT in Europe, Middle East and Africa, at a meeting for Cloud28 partners near Amsterdam on May 19, 2016Cloud28 , the cloud services federation backed by Hewlett Packard Enterprise, now wants to help you install enterprise applications, not just choose them from its catalog.The federation plans to open its new App Center for business later this summer, and will begin stocking its virtual shelves on June 7 with the opening of an App Onboarding Center.Once strictly an open source, OpenStack shop, it is now embracing Microsoft Azure, VMware, Ormuco and Docker.One of the advantages of Cloud28 for participating service providers operating in only one country is that it makes them more visible to independent software vendors from other countries looking for new distribution channels, said Khaled Chaar, managing director of German cloud service provider Pironet NDH.Although many applications are already cloud-ready, for a typical business the 20 percent or so of the applications it uses that aren't cloud-ready are probably the most valuable, industry-specific ones, he said.Making it easier to move those to the cloud will present significant advantages, he said.

US cloud giant Salesforce is expanding its UK headquarters in one of London's tallest skyscrapers.The San Francisco enterprise software company, which has a market cap of $77 billion £52.7 billion , announced the office expansion on Thursday at its largest customer event outside the US, alongside several other investments into the UK.The expansion will see Salesforce go from occupying four floors at 110 Bishopsgate to 10 floors, a Salesforce spokeswoman told Business Insider, adding that some floors are still under construction.Salesforce has not disclosed which floors it is taking or when they will be fully occupied.Salesforce tried and failed to officially rename the building— widely known to Londoners as Heron Tower — after itself in 2014.The company signed a 15-year naming rights deal with Heron International in May 2014 but City of London council members voted in September 2014 in favour of naming the skyscraper "110 Bishopsgate," after the building's street address.Several of the building's existing tenants, including failed startup Powa Technologies, were unhappy over the proposed Salesforce rebranding.At the time of the name change, Ant Sharp, Powa Technologies deputy chair, reportedly said it was "at best rude and at worse is contrary to the law and leases we signed."Despite not gaining official naming rights, Salesforce and Heron International still refer to the building as Salesforce Tower."NOW WATCH: This smart earpiece translates languages as they are spokenLoading video...
As one founder told the outlet, Being honest in Silicon Valley is like being the one member of an Olympic team that isn t on steroids.It s easy to wag our fingers as we wait to see how these narratives unfold, but here s the truth: due diligence only goes so far.Jonathan Abrams, the founder of social news aggregator Nuzzel, is a limited partner in the funds of Data Collective, a San Francisco-based venture firm that prides itself on making wide-ranging bets, from satellites, to antiviral therapeutics, to ocean freight reservations.Adds Abrams, who has raised millions of dollars from VCs across four startups and has personally invested in roughly 50 startups, You can understand VCs want to avoid investing in the next Theranos.Clinkle — a payments company whose $25 million seed round in 2013 was billed as the largest in Silicon Valley history — is perhaps the highest-profile example of this type of misguided thinking.I ve been surprised how some investors will oftentimes just go in behind a big brand, like, Hey, if this is KP and Sequoia, and the deal includes this partner and this sector, we need to move quickly, says Murphy, who insists that smart VCs know better.

A shocking device aimed at changing habitual behaviourA bracelet that gives its wearer an electric shock when they go overdrawn is being launched.The plan is worked out in four stages starting with the customer logging into their credit card or bank account facility.The bracelet is expected to be particularly appealing to the youth market with parents and partners particularly expressing an interest on their beloved's behalf.Managing director David Webber was quoted as saying: "My daughter and other people we've spoken to who are under 25 think it's brilliant.The wristband was launched in 2014 by a US internet business intended for use as a way of shocking people out of bad habits, such as smoking or nail-biting.It was based on the experiment conducted by Russian psychologist Ivan Pavlov with dogs which found that the dogs - and in this case people - can be trained to behave in certain ways through reward or punishment.

"The concept of Li-Fi came about after an Estonian company called Velmenni conducted a real-world test in which it was able to transfer data at 1Gbps, which is approximately 100 times faster than Wi-Fi," says Albie Attias, managing director of IT hardware reseller King of Servers."Similar to the infrared technology found in TVs, Li-Fi works by turning an input command into binary code, which is then transmitted through infrared light waves by the remote's sensor," adds Attias.Harold Haas from pureLi-Fi demoed the tech at TED five years agoWhat is VLC?VLC is being explored by Disney Research, while Qualcomm has its Lumicast technology, which could be employed in LED lighting fixtures where Li-Fi is used to transmit indoor location data."The latest innovation is totally wireless, and can operate with existing LED bulb technology," says Attias, who states that to go mobile, Li-Fi would require smartphones and laptops to be fitted with a photosensor to read incoming light.Li-Fi's biggest advocate is Harold Haas, a professor at the University of Edinburgh who gave a TED talk on Li-Fi, which included a demo, in 2011, then founded pureLi-Fi.

Southeast Asia s Internet economy, spanning online shopping to games and advertising, will surge sixfold to about $200 billion in the next decade, according to joint research by Google Inc. and Temasek Holdings Pte.As more consumers get online and shop from smartphones, e-commerce in the region could jump to $88 billion by 2025, a 16-fold increase, according to a report the two companies released in conjunction with a conference in Singapore.That growth will be driven by an increase in the number of Internet users from 260 million to 480 million by 2020, according to the report.Indonesia, the biggest economy in Southeast Asia, is projected to add Net users faster than any other country in the world, according to the report.Despite such prospects, the region that also includes Malaysia, Singapore, the Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam attracted less than a fifth of the venture capital funding India received in 2014.In 2014, VC investment in Southeast Asia accounted for 0.04 percent of its gross domestic product.That compares with 0.15 percent in China, 0.25 percent in India and 0.3 percent in the U.S., according to the report.Google and Temasek, Singapore s state-owned investment company which invests in VC firms and startups through its unit Vertex Venture Holdings Ltd., worked together on the report, using Google s proprietary data, Temasek s research, as well as interviews with 59 experts.
The MPA represents the international interests of six major Hollywood studios and it has had a 30-year-long relationship with FACT to fight copyright infringement in various ways, including to prevent recordings in cinemas and distributing pirated content online.However, that is set to end in six months, and as MPAA provides half of the organisation's budget, it will have to make do with the remaining 50% contributed by the UK Cinema Association, the Film Distributors' Association and broadcasters like ITV.Stan McCoy, the MPAA's president and managing director for EMEA told movie trade magazine Screen Daily that the MPAA has withdrawn its funding from FACT as part of a wider strategy to refocus its operations into regional hubs, rather than specific territories."We live in a world now where a piracy website can have its nexus in Sweden one day, then move in a few months to Eastern Europe, then to Thailand, or it can operate in all three of those jurisdictions at once," he said.It will be interesting to see if the loss in funding will affect how FACT tackles anti-piracy in the UK, especially in regards to its current rewards programme, which rewards cinema workers with cash payments of £1,000 each time they succeed in thwarting pirates – also known as "cammers" – during blockbuster season.One incident led to two arrests, while formal cautions were given out at four incidents.
We all have different methods for shopping.Slower music causes shoppers to move more slowly, meaning they will spend more time looking at offers and considering extra purchases.Firstly, you only go into each aisle once to make purchases and secondly, you should easily be able to tell if something is missing from the list.Try not to buy ready meals—in addition to being high in sugar, salt and fat, even the value versions cost a lot for what they are.Everyone can save time and money by breaking their normal habits and thinking just a little more about how they shop.Phillip Adcock is the founder and Managing Director of the research agency Shopping Behaviour Xplained Ltd and the author of Shoppology: The Science of Supermarket Shopping.
