The onus is now on a national imperative to put in place a plan that allows the UK tech sector to continue to flourish.Access to the Single Market must be the primary objective of any UK negotiationAccess to the single market allows tech firms to compete for business on equal terms across Europe, generating jobs and growth and is a key factor in the UK's ability to attract foreign investment.If the UK can no longer benefit from free movement then a new 'smart immigration' policy needs to be put in place that prioritises the needs to the UK's fast growing and high value tech sector.Work should start now on securing international data flows and data protectionTech businesses are data driven and depend upon the ability to move data across national borders.
If you re the kind of person who takes lots of photos and videos at concerts, your days might be numbered.The patent, filed back in 2011, describes the iPhone s camera detecting an infrared signal in order to receive information.One of the most obvious possibilities for this type of data transfer would be to prohibit concert-goers from capturing bootleg footage at exclusive events.Apple even included illustrations in the patent filing to show how the technology would work.Here s how Apple describes that process in its patent filling:In some embodiments, a device may apply a watermark to detected images as an alternative to completely disabling a recording function.In such an example, the device may then apply the watermark to all detected images that are displayed or stored e.g., single pictures or frames of a video .
Comment Ever wondered what would happen if you gave that stoner dude with the far-out ideas millions of dollars?Not content with wasting money delivering food, cleaning laundry, walking dogs and whatever other nonsense the Valley has wasted millions on the past few years, Y Combinator is thinking big.Rent is, like, crazy high – let's find a way to build new houses that are really cheap but also super cool.Y Combinator thinks that you can decide what values you are able to embed into the culture of a city – and decide them ahead of time.And it goes on and on like this: affordable high-speed transit no doubt from being delayed on BART ; "should we have human-driven cars at all?"The brains behind the idea: Adora Cheung of YC ResearchWhy on earth is Y Combinator wasting its money on something like this?
For B2B demand marketers, media has until recently been synonymous with impressions, maybe clicks and hopefully, leads.The focus over the last several years, however, has shifted to: Impressions are a bonus; I expect leads.Now on top of the static lead/contact info itself, think of all the added insights aggregated through the analysis of this data:surging contextual content that illustrates interest in specific topics among individual leads e.g., the number of white paper downloads in a set period of time ;actions that signal info consumption preferences;industry trends e.g., sudden bump in, say, cloud computing interest among enterprise companies ; andchanges in account info e.g., human capital jumps between companies .The future of media is full-funnel data supportThe major takeaway here is that media companies are no longer chained to top-funnel activities.It ll certainly help you prioritize lead nurturing and sales follow-up.ABOUT THE AUTHORScott Vaughan is CMO of Integrate, a cloud-based, closed-loop marketing software provider, where he leads the company s go-to-market and marketing strategy focused on serving its growing customer base of marketers.
Machine moves closer, execs move d outMartin Fink, the chief techie straddling Hewlett Packard Enterprise s global Labs is quitting just as the prototype of his most ambitions project to date, The Machine, edges closer.Martin has had a remarkable career, driving some of our most important initiatives, including our cloud, open source and Linux strategies and leading the Business Critical Systems division and The Machine, she said.Whitman said today the prototype will bring The Machine to life , but provided little detail.To further accelerate the time it takes to drive technology from research and development to commercialisation, we will move Hewlett Packard Labs into the Enterprise Group , said Meg.This, she said, will help align R legwork on The Machine with the business - particularly how we integrate key components like photonics and memristor into existing product lines - by bringing together our innovation roadmap with our business roadmap .All these changes also coincide with the end of COO John Hinshaw's career at HPE - he was previously in charge of customer advocacy, IT and operations and oversaw the split of HP into two companies, and did a good job, channel partners told us at the time.
The first grumblings about the new device have surfaced from a bug report about a trust prompt issues with the device via the Ubuntu Touch IRC and on Launch Pad.According to the chatter, the trust prompt issue causes the mystery Midori device and the MX4 to reboot.RC is a release candidate for those unfamiliar with the abbreviation and is talking about the release candidate channel for Ubuntu Touch images."We're working on a fairly large ofono change at the moment for a new handset so we expect to land a new version of ofono soon although not before the freeze for OTA12."As it stands all we have are rumors and gleaned details from various sources to point at a new smartphone running Ubuntu.Perhaps more details will be coming soon.
Tillsammans med solid ram med rundande kanter, matta metallytor både runtom och baktill och snyggt upphöjt så kallat 2,5D-glas framtill ger den intrycket av att vara en riktig premiumlur.Kant till kant-känslan för skärmen är extra läcker och den hade vi gärna sett i de andra två Xperia X-modellerna också.Det är synd, för du vill verkligen ha koll på vad du gör om du vill ut i sommarsolen för att fota.Xperia XA har liksom de flestas Sony-lurar separat kamera-knapp.Du kan ställa in den så att den tar en bild på en knapp sekund, även om telefonen är låst.På det stora hela är det dock en bra kamera i den här prisklassen.

As of today the UK is still part of the EU and is still fully compliant, as a jurisdiction, with the Union's requirements on data sharing.As the Information Commissioner's Office ICO patiently attempted to explain today: The Data Protection Act remains the law of the land irrespective of the referendum result.The ICO s role has always involved working closely with regulators in other countries, and that would continue to be the case.Meanwhile the political risk is that the EU will not want to set a good precedent for those wishing to secede, and will not be making the dis en tanglement very easy – they will be doing what they can to make sure this doesn't start a domino effect, Colvin said that the UK is in a good position.The EU is a major trading partner and thus there will be certain compliance requirements, but having been pat of the EU we're obviously fully compliant, we've got the right safeguards in, which is starkly different to states attempting to affiliate, where when it comes to approaches for trade-agreements with members, are viewed as non-compliant entities.Much again depends on the political leadership of the future, with Prime Minister David Cameron, who campaigned for remain, announcing his resignation today.

Three vendors, including Microsoft and Amazon Web Services, have won a key U.S. government authorization that allows federal agencies to put highly sensitive data on their cloud-computing services.The FedRAMP high baseline, including more than 400 security controls, allows federal agencies to use AWS for highly sensitive workloads, including personal information, AWS said Thursday.About half of the U.S. government's annual US$80 billion IT budget is spent on systems covered by the high baseline, FedRAMP noted in a blog post."This release allows agencies to use cloud environments for high-impact data, including data that involves the protection of life and financial ruin."The FedRAMP high baseline for AWS gives agencies a "simplified path" to move their sensitive data to the cloud service, Teresa Carlson, vice president for the worldwide public sector at AWS, said in a press release.The FedRAMP high baseline is aligned with the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology's security controls, which classify data as high risk if a compromise would severely affect an organization's operations, assets, or people.

I once wrote a review of Apple s iOS that was twenty four thousand words long.But over the last few years, several industry forces have altered the fundamental equations of reviewing operating systems.First of all, they re mostly either cheap or free.Another is the move towards all devices becoming thin clients that are front ends for cloud services.Any more, OS reviews have become ad hoc user manuals with an op-ed spin or hyper technical dissections for the obsessed.doesn t help anyone.
Converse s iconic Chuck Taylors may have begun as high-end sports accessories for the earliest basketball stars, but they have become the footwear of many musical stars over the years.In celebration of this fact, the company has partnered with fashion company CuteCircuit to produce a pair of Chucks with a built in wah-wah pedal — an homage to the company s many musical wearers that they have labeled the Converse Chet Atkins All Wah.Wah pedals create the classic wacka-wacka waves of sound employed by musicians like Jimi Hendrix.The shoes were originally the pet project of design agency Critical Mass, who first worked out the design three years ago.Many never thought they would actually see the light of day, given that the Nike-owned Converse probably can t move a massive number of pairs of the niche product.The way it works is relatively simple: A flex sensor is responsible for telling an outboard wah box, and that data is then transmitted to guitar signal.
Concept art from Criterion's now-cancelled game.In recent years Criterion has aided in the development of Visceral's Battlefield Hardline and DICE's Star Wars Battlefront, helping with the vehicular portions of those games.It was now supporting the development of Star Wars Battlefront: X-Wing VR Mission, a game heading to Sony's PlayStation VR headset.The cancelled Criterion project was introduced at E3 with a strange developer diary embedded below that offered a look behind the scenes at concept art and very early gameplay footage, but was also focused on Criterion's development practice and office layout.Discussing the game, it was revealed that it would have been a first-person game influenced by GoPro footage often shot by extreme sports fanatics and published online.The last game Criterion developed itself was 2012's Need For Speed: Most Wanted.
Trailer for The Girl with All the GiftsOne of the most fascinating sci-fi horror novels of 2014 was The Girl with All the Gifts, M.R.Our young hero Melanie is part of a second generation of hungries, who carry the fungal invaders but are otherwise completely normal humans.Well, except for the part where they have the urge to eat human flesh.While it's not entirely clear where the movie is taking this scenario, it's obviously exploring the infected as a scientific phenomenon, and Melanie is at the heart of it.Possibly the best comparison might be with In the Flesh, a British TV series about zombies whose violent urges can be controlled with drugs, and who are now struggling to rejoin the communities where they once rampaged.It hits theaters in the UK on September 23.
The central idea is good but something personal would really help the audience get to that they re going to do it again thing.It just so happened that the same person was Tony s friend and Carol s romantic friend and I did say out loud, I don t know exactly where they re going to land in the Civil War movie but I know Rhodey gets hurt and I m worried about even the concept of poaching something.I used to get crap like this when I was writing Daredevil.It s like, Okay, yeah, we can lose him because whatever imagined numbers for our audience won t care about him.I m not saying it s the only way to feel or that this is the last statement on the subject, because I don t think it is at all.I m not talking about all the incidents, which obviously, I have no control over.
The days of the two-step verification code are numbered, if Google has its way.Photograph: Samuel Gibbs for the GuardianUsing two-step authentication, normally a code from an app or texted to you, is a crucial, but highly irritating, part of logging into all manner of things.Now Google is attempting to make the whole process less irritating and much faster, using a push notification which users can simply accept to login.Google s new two-step notification on Android.Photograph: Samuel Gibbs for the GuardianAvailable soon for both Android and iOS - iPhone users need the Google Search app installed - when a user logs into a Google account or a third-party service using their Google credentials, they will be sent a notification asking if they re trying to login.You still have to fumble for your phone, but at least it s now just a one-tap affair.
There was this apology that was riding alongside this entirely human desire to look good, she said.She wanted to get answers to big questions: Can putting on makeup be considered a feminist act?Certainly there are women who are unabashedly in love with beauty and in love with the products, but I found that a lot of women who consider themselves a little more serious — for lack of a better term — had guilt about caring about those things.I know that a lot of trans women report in their transition into womanhood that beauty routines and those shared experiences — and being able to do it openly — was something they had been looking forward to since they were children.Were there any common themes?It seemed both very individualistic and very collective, all at once.
