The French manufacturer has had several models that we have been very pleased with, but today revealed the news of an entirely different caliber. The close dialogue between the design, development and production have resulted in high-end speaker series Sopra and Utopia, and it is obvious that Focal has wanted to make use of this expertise for the main speakers too. Photo: Focal Focal simply has the ambition to become a reference brand in the high-end headphones, and for the success of the bet they rock hard. It's about two headphones based on a completely new design, Focal has researched exactly how sound propagates as close to the ears, and not least, what is crucial to the sound quality. The big question of course is when they will and what they cost? Reportedly, they show up in Sweden in mid-July and will then cost as follows: Focal Listen: 2000 SEK Focal Elear 11 000 Focal Utopia: 42 000 Read also: Test of 10 closed headphones
Yeah, the LG G5 ships without an app drawer.According to Business Korea, industry sources say that LG has just completed development of a phone could be wirelessly charged at a distance of up to 7 cm from the actual charging pad.It uses a technology is known as magnetic resonance-based wireless charging.By comparison, magnetic induction wireless charging, supported by the popular Qi standard as well as PMA, requires contact.The feature has proven popular with phones like the Galaxy S7 Edge.Though it wasn t the most elegant implementation, and LG would need to really wow buyers with a slick setup in order to convince them it s time for another phone.
Job ads in Ireland seeking copper jointers and copper gurus for the National Broadband Network have been pulled from Monster.ie after they were spotted by Australian media.The advertisements were placed by a recruiter, and while they were seeking staff to work on the National Broadband Network, the company in charge of the operation, nbnTM, has told The Register it did not place the advertisements.The timing of the recruitment campaign was inept, since they emerged during Australia's federal election campaign and the NBN is a sensitive issue.Mystery surrounds who did place the advertisements, which on Monster identified the advertiser as OneIRC.Its LinkedIn page here, or cached in case of deletion links to a parked domain at Crazy Domains.While nbnTM issued a statement that it wasn't responsible for the advertisements, it did not respond to questions from The Register asking what it knew about OneIRC.
It's been almost five years since we first saw Siri presented, and many times the question has been asked why not, Siri is also available on the Mac. But now, most indications are that we will see a greatly updated Siri on Apple's upcoming WWDC event - and even on the Mac this time. He has several times in recent weeks a number of questions like, "Siri open the settings window." Here you can see Roemmeles tweet with a video showing Siri's responses. They are both important parts of Mac OS X, but are notoriously not the IOS. This thus provides additional water on rumor mill, and it is not unlikely that we will soon see Siri also on the Mac.
Amazon leaked a new image of the next game in The Legend of Zelda series for the Wii U, and it may have revealed one of series hero Link s newest abilities.The hero of the next Zelda, which is debuting in 2017 for Wii U and Nintendo s followup console codenamed NX, may have the ability to climb mountains, according to an image released early by Amazon via Cartridge Games .The artwork features Link hanging from a vertical cliff with one hand.Nintendo previously announced that Zelda Wii U, as fans call it, will have an open-world map, but now it looks like even mountains won t constrain him.Check it out:
Not necessarily, according to a statement provided by Lenovo-owned Motorola to Android Police.In it the company says the Moto X is "alive and well" so it doesn't sound like it'll be disappearing just yet."Moto X and Moto Z do share some great qualities, but they ultimately provide different experiences and make our portfolio more robust for consumers looking for the perfect smartphone to fit their needs," said the statement.Letter lotteryThe brief response issued by Motorola mentioned the launch of the Moto X Force in October last year as a sign that the X line isn't going anywhere - but it stopped short of promising that there definitely would be new Moto X-branded hardware in the future.Perhaps the Moto X and Moto Z will continue to develop alongside each other or perhaps the availability of the two ranges will depend on where you happen to be in the world.The letter Y is still free - maybe Lenovo has plans for yet another line of phones offering something different to consumers.
Security researcher Inti De Ceukelaire this week penned a Medium blog detailing how he was able to see private links shared between users using the Facebook s crawler tool.The crawler is used to obtain details about a URL to display them the way you normally see links on Facebook: with a title, description, and thumbnail image.It does not, however, show you who sent the link.When he contacted Facebook about the issue, the company responded that this is how the crawler works, and the process is intended.Still, it s an interesting insight at exactly how Facebook treats URLs when they re being shared on Facebook.If you don t want links to your personal photos or projects potentially being looked at by curious developers, De Ceukelaire s research is just another cautionary tale of a simple mantra: don t share ultra-private things on social networks.

At 1:59 pm ET, a Delta IV rocket will send what is likely a spy satellite into space on behalf of the National Reconnaissance Office NRO — and it ll be live cast here.Named the NROL-37 mission, everyone involved is remaining tight-lipped on the purpose of the launch, but we do know that it supports national security.What little information we do have is that the NROL-37 features a mysterious mission patch, which depicts a knight, a symbol of courage with a chivalrous code of conduct representing bravery, training, and service to others.Furthermore, the NRO claims, the eagle displayed on the knight s chest is indicative of freedom, and the sword serves as a message of tenacious, fierce focus with the claws representing extreme reach with global coverage.But that may soon no longer be the case, as SpaceX s Falcon Heavy rocket is expected to force the Delta off its throne later this year.The livecast will begin 20 minutes prior to launch at 1:39 pm, and you can watch all the action here.
The offering is anticipated to close on or around 22 June 2016, subject to customary closing conditions.After consummation of the Dell-EMC Merger, Denali's subsidiary Dell International and EMC will assume all of the co-issuers' obligations under the Notes.The European Commission and the US regulators have approved the merger, which is still subject to EMC shareholders approval.Under the deal, EMC shareholders will receive $24.05 per share in cash in addition to tracking stock linked to a portion of EMC's economic interest in the VMware business.The deal is anticipated to close before Dell's third quarter ends next month.Dell went private in 2013 to better serve its customers and drive the innovations that will help them achieve their goals.
"At the time the FAA organic statute was created, drones were the stuff of science fiction," Mario Cerame, of the Randazza Legal Group, wrote in his recent opening brief defending the student, Austin Haughwout, and his father, Bret Haughwout.The elder Haughwout declined the government s efforts, telling the FAA in an e-mail that because the agency had not alleged a particular violation, then he was under no obligation to comply.Ceramic plates during a lovers spat.Similarly, a lawyer who represents a pilot whose drone was shot down over Kentucky noted that this case is still in the early phases—after all, neither Haughwout has been charged with a crime."On the broader question of the legality of arming a drone, the law prohibits recklessly endangering the public when flying an aircraft," she added.But there's a strong argument that shooting bullets from a UAS would be considered illegal under one or more existing provisions that are designed to ensure safety."
Image copyright Image caption University IT workers tried to crack the ransomware for more than a week before the paymentA Canadian university has paid hackers to restore access to data they had turned into the digital equivalent of gibberish.The University of Calgary transferred 20,000 Canadian dollars-worth of bitcoins $15,780; £10,840 after it was unable to unwind damage caused by a type of attack known as ransomware.The malware caused emails and other files to become encrypted.The move comes the same week Intel warned that ransomware infections were spreading at "an alarming rate".The University of Calgary told a local newspaper that more than 100 of its computers had been affected since it was attacked last month."The hackers are threatening to publicly publish information they found on your computers if you refuse to pay, which acts as a double incentive to comply."
Tonight, Hillary Clinton plans to claim victory as the first female candidate to become a major political party s presumptive nominee for president.In honor of that moment in history—and before the results of today s six primaries are announced—the Clinton campaign has released a video that celebrates the former Secretary of State s accomplishment, positioning it as the climax of decades of work stretching back to the women s suffrage movement in the 1800s and the women s liberation movement of the 1960s.The video features footage and famous quotes of prominent female leaders, including Gloria Steinem and Rosa Parks, and of course, Clinton herself.These include Clinton s famous declaration at the 1995 UN Conference on Women: Human rights are women s rights, and women s rights are human rights, once and for all.Now, as she readies herself for battle against presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump, whose support among women in the United States is dismal, Clinton is embracing with both arms not only the historical significance of her pending nomination but the obvious electoral advantages is could give her in November.President Barack Obama waits during a break in filming a town hall meeting for PBS Newshour at the Lerner Theater in Elkhart, Indiana on June 1, 2016.
After overhauling the look of mobile Pages last fall, Facebook is experimenting with a new design for the desktop version of Pages that drops right-rail ads from the page, among other changes.According to screenshots posted on Twitter by The Next Web s head of content Matt Navarra, the redesigned desktop Pages adopt the changes Facebook made to mobile Pages last year, such as buttons displayed more prominently atop the page that people can click on to open a business s app or shop on its site.We re testing a new design for Pages on desktop to make it easier for people to learn about and interact with businesses on Facebook, including a larger cover photo and more prominent call-to-action button, the spokesperson said.In addition to the larger cover photo, the page navigation menu is repositioned along the left-hand-rail, and the page information boxes, such as the like count and about boxes, are switched over to the right-hand rail.It s unclear how much the right-rail ads contribute to Facebook s desktop ad revenue and how that contribution has trended over time, but it seems safe to assume it s a minority share considering they bring in less money per ad than Facebook s news feed ads.I wasn t able to encounter live versions of the redesigned desktop Pages, but you can check out screenshots posted by Navarra and designer Hugh Briss for samples of what they look like.

It s well established that while fitness programs and the wearing of fitness wearables are enthusiastically embraced, both receive a drop-off after three months or less.This is compounded by the fact that, so far, there s been a proliferation of human performance data in the market, but a lack of understanding about what the data means and what to do with it.EXOS is a human performance company that trains elite athletes, such as the likes of Russell Wilson, Andrew Luck, and German National Soccer team.The company helps prepare hundreds of college players for the NFL every year, and it built on this program by reaching a deal with the NFL Players Association to provide lifestyle services to current and former players that deal with health, wellness, and life after football.With that in mind, they announced a partnership with Intel in March this year — the first of its kind — with the aims to:Track fitness data using Intel s line of wearable productsAnalyze corporate wellness environments to correlate wellness and productivityEXOS is currently launching new education courses designed for fitness professionals, focusing on behavior upgrades and wearables data collection.Friedman stresses that there is a need to ensure that data focuses on a variety of activities in an ongoing way with a consideration of the individual beyond the quantified self, Is a healthier employee more happy, do they have more energy, do they stay more engaged?
Opendoor, a two-year-old, San Francisco-based startup is a swing-for-the fences type of bet during a time when the most ambitious startups are suddenly less fashionable than they once were.In fact, Opendoor, which is on a mission to make it simple to buy and sell houses online, just added another layer of risk onto its big-risk, big-reward model.Specifically, if someone changes his or her mind for any reason, that person has 30 days to receive a full refund.We stand behind our homes, says Eric Wu, CEO and co-founder of Opendoor.In return, Opendoor gets enough money to ensure that a home is whipped into move-in-ready state, including addressing any safety issues.To keep from buying any real lemons, Opendoor won t purchase any home built before 1960.

FÖRVÄRV Amerikanska operatörsjätten Verizon ska ha lagt ett bud på Yahoo på 3 miljarder dollar.Det rapporterar Wall Street Journal med hänvisning till källor.Verizons bud är lagt i en andra budomgång.Bland andra aktörer som lagt bud på Yahoos verksamhet på internet finns operatören AT, TPG och ett konsortium lett av Bain Capital och Vista Equity Partners.Tidigare har det talats om bud i intervallet 4-8 miljarder dollar.I februari i år inledde vd Marissa Mayer en strategisk utvärdering.
Was the 2013 Shelby GT500 with 662hp quicker to 60 mph and through a quarter-mile?In the Shelby GT350/R, this translates to an 8,250 rev limiter and one of the most vicious sounds of any production vehicle.Both the standard GT350 and more aggressive R designation produce the same power, use the same 6-speed Tremec manual transmission, and route their horses to the rear wheels through a Torsen limited-slip differential.Both cars also employ Ford s MagneRide magnetic dampers, 15.5-inch front brake rotors with 6-piston Brembo calipers, 14.9-inch rear discs with 4-piston calipers, and lowered ride heights.Visually, you can pick out the R from its larger chin splitter, carbon fiber rear wing, red interior accents, and lack of rear seating.While three laps is hardly enough to draw firm conclusions about how a vehicle handles—and we ll have more significant time with the GT350 next month—it was enough to see Ford s engineering brilliance shine through.
