The hotel business is at peak due to the increased tourism in various countries.As a hotel owner, this is obviously good news but the real question is are you ready for handling it.Many hotel owners register with third-party apps to spread their hotel name and connect with customers.Also as a guest, we should note that booking a hotel through these third-party apps and agents is a time-consuming activity.What if we fly over these apps and why cannot we straightly reach the hotel for booking.To offer this feature to the customer the hotel owner should have online reservation software.
in the great, dark forest of the universe has us searching for signs of water.But closer to home there's a more pressing question: Where did Earth's water come from?"We have identified a vast reservoir of Earth-like water in the outer reaches of the solar system," said Darek Lis, lead author of the study, in a statement.The study, published in Astronomy and Astrophysics Letters on May 20, used NASA's Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy (SOFIA) to investigate the so-called Christmas comet, as it made a close approach to Earth in December 2018.The instrument operates out of a specially-designed Boeing 747 up above the clouds, enabling it to see cosmic phenomena with a pair of clearer eyes than some of our ground-based methods.A long-standing theory posits the Earth's water was delivered by icy comets originating from the outer reaches of the solar system.
Matthew Marre was indicted [PDF] and arrested last month for allegedly obtaining "confidential phone record information ... by making false and fraudulent statements and representations" when he called a hotline run by the different mobile networks, and asked for the GPS location of specific cellphones – all of which belonged to people that were wanted for skipping bail.What is remarkable is that Marre was seemingly able to get the information at all.The police are required to follow a "legal court process compelling the companies to assist law enforcement" i.e.When Marre was interviewed following the bush-tracking incident, he told a police officer that he was the owner of "Colorado PSC LLC" and had been contracted by a bail bond company to track the man in question.We haven't been able to find a limited liability company called "Colorado PSC" but it is possible that Marre simply implied he was a police officer by saying he was from "Colorado PSC" and was given the information by the mobile operator.Either way, Marre was apparently able to get hold of information that should been restricted only to law enforcement officers in an emergency situation – and was able to do so repeatedly with three of the four mobile operators, suggesting at the very least that those companies have lax data protection systems in place.
He was the one of the greatest starship captains the galaxy has ever known, a shining beacon of intelligence, tolerance and empathy who made baldness look badass.That's the question posed by the trailer for Star Trek: Picard, a new show that picks up the good captain's adventures years after we last saw Patrick Stewart take command of the USS Enterprise.It's been exactly 25 years since Star Trek: The Next Generation ended, and nearly two decades since the last Star Trek movie with the TNG crew.Disclosure: CNET earns commissions from the services featured on this page.The show, which is expected to debut before the end of 2019, will explore why Picard abandoned the Enterprise and why he might be tempted to return.The time-traveling finale of The Next Generation jumped from the first episode of the show to an imagined future where a mightily bearded Picard ran a vineyard.
In 2015, physicists at Julius-Maximilians-Universität (JMU) Würzburg in Bavaria, Germany, succeeded in establishing a new Collaborative Research Centre in Würzburg.The German Research Foundation (DFG) provided around 11 million euros for this purpose.The money went into research into topological materials - this class of materials is characterised by very unusual properties.This process was very successful for the university: The DFG continues to rate the work carried out and the new research plans as excellent.It is funding the SFB "Topological and Correlated Electronics in Surfaces and Interfaces (ToCoTronics)" for another four years with a total of 12 million euros.Results are published in renowned journals
It looks like Amazon is working on a new Alexa-powered gadget that can listen to you and decide how you feel, and make recommendations based on your human emotions.Bloomberg could not say whether the testing in question “includes prototype hardware, the emotion-detecting software or both.” The report does say that the device is a “wrist-worn gadget” being developed in collaboration with Lab126, the same company that helped develop the Echo and the Fire phone (LOL).As the lifelike drawing above illustrates, a sick woman could arrive home, cough, and say she’s hungry.Alexa would tag her as “sick” and then recommend chicken soup.Alexa could even offer to order lozenges from Amazon in an effort to ease the human’s malaise.The Alexa workflow, according to the same drawing, might look a little bit like this:
User reviews are often a good way to get a feel for what your peers think of a movie, game, or TV show, but usually there isn’t any kind of vetting process associated with them.How can you tell that the person leaving an exceedingly low (or exceeding high) rating on a movie actually saw it?Rotten Tomatoes asked the same question, and today, it’s introducing verified audience reviews and ratings.Up until this point, Rotten Tomatoes has allowed users reviews and ratings from everyone, assuming the movie being reviewed has actually been released.It’ll still do that after today’s introduction of verified audience ratings, but now when you visit a page for a movie on Rotten Tomatoes, you’ll see the collective verified audience rating first.You can still see the audience score that takes every user review into account, but it’ll initially be hidden behind a “More Info” tab.
We now have the first trailer for Star Trek: Picard, a new series stepping back into the life of the Starfleet hero we first met as captain of the USS Enterprise in Star Trek: The Next Generation.In a neat link to All Good Things, the finale of The Next Generation that aired 25 years ago Thursday, the trailer opens in, presumably, the Picard family vineyard, where we see Jean-Luc Picard is devoted to making wine.Fifteen years ago, we're told, he led a rescue armada that saved us all -- but why did the now Admiral Picard leave Starfleet?Perhaps the even bigger question is, what has prompted him to come back?Star Trek: Picard is the second new Trek show to launch on streaming service CBS All Access following Star Trek: Discovery, which has been renewed for a third season.(Disclosure: CBS is the parent company of CNET).
Indeed, it is common wisdom that when you lose one sense, the remaining senses heighten.Brain data initially seemed to explain these sensory superpowers.When a major sensory input is lost, the brain area that would have supported the missing sense now becomes active to other inputs.This can happen across sensory systems – like visual areas activating to touch in the blind.While this is still the consensus across the scientific world, the idea is starting to attract some unexpected controversy.Our new paper, published in the Journal of Experimental Psychology: General, has shed some light on the problem.
Amazon is already neck-deep in the world of smart assistants with Alexa, but today we’re learning that it may be working on new technology that will make these AI assistants quite a bit more capable.Amazon is said to working on a new wearable device that can discern human emotions, and while it would indeed be pretty cool if it was able to pick up on human emotions accurately, it’s sure to spark an entirely new privacy debate.After all, Amazon and Alexa have both been in the news lately for unsettling reasons.Last month, Bloomberg reported that Amazon has a team of humans listening to and annotating voice clips from Alexa users in an effort to improve the AI, bringing the issue of privacy front and center once again.If an AI assistant like Alexa is capable of learning your emotions and using that to make product recommendations, is that a step too far?That’s a question we’re going to have to confront if this wearable ever makes it to market.

With a population of around 1.4 billion people, everyone wants a piece of the Chinese market.And as Chinese consumers become increasingly connected in cyberspace, digital marketing provides a shortcut for businesses and brands to that opportunity, provided, that is, marketers select online channels wisely.Speaking at the Emerge by TechNode conference in Shanghai on Thursday, CMO of key opinion leader (KOL) marketing platform PARKLU Elijah Whaley told delegates that while Chinese social, content and commerce platforms offer similar functionalities, there is a key differentiating factor—user purpose or intent.The question, according to Whaley is, “Why am I walking into this app or what am I explicitly getting out of from interacting with the ecosystem?”The seamless ubiquity of WeChat makes it the go-to place for online marketing, but the platform is particularly good for CRM, and as a place for conversation given its core function in messaging friends, families, and coworkers.“We see a lot of partners really wanted WeChat to be a marketing platform,” he said.
But nearly one-fifth was meant to help state governments jumpstart the shift away from driving on dirty diesel.So it’s just a bit distressing that, for the most part, the officials charged with spending that money don’t seem especially intent on putting it toward a cleaner future.That’s the takeaway from a newly released report by the US Public Interest Research Group, whose authors went over the high-level plans each state had to submit before collecting its check.The money in question comes from a $2.9 billion Environmental Mitigation Trust that VW funded as part of the 2016 settlement, which it signed with the Environmental Protection Agency and Federal Trade Commission.When the settlement was finalized, US PIRG recommended that states spend 15 percent on their windfalls on infrastructure, and put the remainder into fully electric buses to replace vehicles that are commonly diesel-powered and tend to travel in densely populated areas, around children.The Sierra Club and Natural Resources Defense Council made similar recommendations.
There’s little question that Apple has iPhone 11 models in the works for later this year, but if there was any doubt, the appearance of eleven unannounced handsets on a regulatory database should quell it.The smartphones were spotted on the Eurasian Economic Commission’s regulatory database by 9to5Mac, but the listings don’t tell us much.They’re listed as Apple smartphones with the model numbers A2111, A2160, A2161, A2215, A2216, A2217, A2218, A2219, A2220, A2221, and A2223.Check out our guide to the best iPhoneThe iPhone 11 probably won't join the ranks of 5G phonesBased on the model numbers, 9to5Mac theorizes that the A2111, A2161 and A2215 are models of the iPhone XR successor, which might launch as the iPhone 11R.

Office 365 can generate a lot of questions from enterprise users, but few reach the magnitude — in volume, in exasperation — as, "Where do I save my files?"That's because corporate Office 365 subscriptions come with two competing destinations: the personal storage space managed by OneDrive for Business and the most unsettling public, or at least collaborative, document libraries of SharePoint and its mutating team sites.At one level, there's no right answer.As long as you save the document or file somewhere — assuming you can remember where that somewhere was — everything is good.But that won't make the question retreat.So we've tried to come up with a round-up of advice in the form of answers to the sub-queries underlying Office 365's biggest: Where does this document go?

“What if you had 5 million videos with 5 million unique people signing with you, instead of 5 million YouTube views?” That question is how founder and CEO Jeff Smith pitches his social music application, Smule, to labels and artists.Smule has about 40 million users, and Smith said the nearly 11-year-old company brings in some $150 million in annual revenue, with investors including China’s Tencent and India’s Times Bridge.“I wanted to go be a professor of music, but fate had something different in store for me this time,” he said.Smith created the company while earning his doctoral degree in computer music at Stanford University.He says that he wasn’t planning to start another company, but he began creating music with a whole network of people via the then-new iPhone, and that initiative evolved into building prototypes of products running on iPhones.“I started the company with a mission to bring music back to its roots as more of a participatory creative medium,” Smith said, “to build a fabric kind of like Facebook but mostly anonymous—the music becomes the bridge.”
