The best email marketers increasingly are switching to the more relevant and recipient-focused lifecycle campaigns.Instead of sending batch-and-blast emails, they send emails based on the stage the person is in – the first sign-up with the brand, the first purchase, ongoing interactions, and the dormant.A 2017 study by Mailchimp shows that segmented campaigns perform a lot better than the non-segmented emails, including:64% higher unique open ratesDevelop parameters for lifecycle marketingYou first must detail the parameters of your lifecycle email marketing program, from segmenting to email designs.
In a curious evolution of online attempts to scam people, the Varenyky malware being tracked by Slovakian anti-malware company ESET briefly included a screen-recording feature that scanned for particular pornography-related terms before recording what was on screen.During a presentation at the company's HQ in Bratislava, ESET's Ondrej Kubovic described how the malware "was able to record what was going on on the screen.Not everything but when you opened the tab, specific keywords which were all explicit or sex-related."Operating as part of what seemed to be a multi-stage extortion campaign, Varenyky steals passwords, spies on victims and receives command-and-control messages through Tor.Once opened, the malicious attachment (which tends to be a Microsoft Office document) says it needs macros to be enabled; once the victim does that, the email payload downloads the real malware.Once in place on the target device, the malware presents the threat text (saying the victim is in trouble with police, or has been filmed doing a private act, et cetera) along with a Bitcoin wallet address.
Ever since the Nintendo Switch launched in 2017, gamers have been treated to a wide selection of third-party and first-party titles.While some of these award-winning games make it over with all the bells and whistles intact, there are a few that are adjusted to run on the machines limited resources.Unfortunately, "Overwatch" is one of those that belong to the latter, which is apparently frustrating fans of the team-based shooter.Ever since Nintendo's new game system launched, gamers have been petitioning developers to port their favourite titles.These include award-winning fan favourites such as "The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim," "Doom," "Rocket League" and "Diablo III" just to name a few.The latter of which is another title from Blizzard Entertainment, which is the lauded game studio behind "Overwatch" and other popular games.

De svenska storbankerna hör till de minst omtyckta företagen i Sverige.Både entreprenörer och riskkapitalbolag ser sin chans att locka till sig besvikna kunder med smidiga bank- och finanstjänster.På en fungerande marknad leder hårdare konkurrens i regel till ökad kundnytta och billigare tjänster.Med ett modernt tilltal i påkostade tv-kampanjer och affischering i kollektivtrafiken riktar merparten av bolagen in sig på en yngre målgrupp.Förtroende är en färskvara och det krävs inte mycket för att fläcka ned bilden av ”innovativa teknikbolag som står på kundernas sida”.Många av bolagen har fortfarande svårt att ge förtroendeingivande svar om sina affärsmodeller

Racing fans from around the world are descending on Longchamp in Paris this weekend for the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe - Europe’s richest flat race, boasting a prize-money pot of €5 million.A Group 1 race, open to thoroughbred horses aged three and over, 'the Arc' has been dominated in recent years by trainer John Gosden's Enable.The thoroughbred returns to Paris once more this year with Frankie Dettori as jockey in a bid to win the race for a record third consecutive time.Enable is being well backed by the bookies to pull off the feat, and the clear favourite will have to fight off the challenge of a smaller than usual field of just 11 other horses this time out.The five-year-old's main rivals this year both appear to come from Aidan O'Brien's stable with his pair of Japan - drawn next to Enable in stall 10 - and Magical both also strongly tipped.The great news once again for viewers in the UK is that the Arc will be shown live on free-to-air ITV.

While the popular tablet-based 2-in-1 didn’t receive much of a change on the outside, the insides got a significant upgrade.Specifically, the Surface Pro 7 is now based around Intel’s 10th-gen Ice Lake CPUs, making it competitive with traditional clamshell laptops.Both sport Microsoft‘s familiar Surface design aesthetic and build, with a silver-gray magnesium formed into a thin (0.33 inches), light (1.73 pounds), and very robust tablet.Both 2-in-1s feel like solid chunks of glass and metal, and we think its probably the most elegant and modern Windows tablet around, thanks in part to the most flexible and the smoothest kickstand you’ll find.The Surface Pro 7 does improve connectivity, swapping out the Surface Pro 6’s Mini Displayport for a USB-C port (without Thunderbolt 3, alas), to go with the same USB-A port and Surface Connect port.Both 2-in-1s use the same Type Cover as before, a $130 extra, and the keyboard offers the same precise mechanism and consistent backlighting with a very good (if a bit small) Microsoft Precision touchpad with reliable support for all Windows 10 gestures.
Instagram began testing a Restrict feature in July, aimed at enabling people to avoid unwanted interactions with other users, without those users knowing.The Restrict feature began rolling out globally Wednesday.The Facebook-owned photo- and video-sharing network said the Restrict feature was designed to help empower users to protect their accounts and experience on the platform, while still keeping an eye on someone who might be bullying them or taking other inappropriate actions.Instagram users can access the Restrict feature by swiping left on a comment, via the privacy tab in settings or directly on the profile of the person they want to restrict.Once a person is restricted, they will be the only person able to see their comments on posts by the user who restricted them.People who have restricted users can choose to view their comments by tapping “See Comment,” at which point they can approve the comment so everyone can see it, delete it, or ignore it.

With companies like Mobvoi and Fossil developing superb Wear OS devices recently, it makes sense that the platform would draw in more OEMs.That’s precisely what it looks like is happening with Xiaomi.Recent findings suggest that the Chinese tech company is working on a Wear OS device of its own.According to 9to5Google, the latest Wear OS 2.28 APK shows evidence of a possible Xiaomi companion client.With Wear OS, manufacturers can develop their own device companion apps — Mobvoi is one such manufacturer that takes advantage of this with its Mobvoi app.The evidence for Xiaomi’s entrance into the Wear OS scene dates back to the 2.26 update.
McAfee study finds poor setups, even worse visibilityThe ongoing rash of data leaks caused by misconfigured clouds is the result of companies having virtually no visibility into how their cloud instances are configured, and very little ability to audit and manage them.This less-than-sunny news comes courtesy of the team at McAfee, which said in its latest Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) risk report that 99 per cent of exposed instances go unnoticed by the enterprises running them.Such unsecured instances (usually storage buckets or databases left accessible to the general public) have been responsible for many of the largest data leaks in recent years after researchers or, in some cases, hackers, stumbled upon the exposed servers and made off with their contents.McAfee's study, based on a sample of 1,000 enterprises in 11 countries as well as anonymized customer data, suggests that most businesses are woefully unaware of what data they have facing the internet.Customers told the security house they had, on average, around 37 instances of misconfigured systems and folders arise per month.
After two years of work, the wrapper comes off the giant glass cube this week, as Apple’s Fifth Avenue flagship opens to the public this Friday.The big reveal coincides with the company’s latest releases, including new iPhones and an Apple Watch — an appropriately grandiose homecoming for new gear.The cube itself appears largely unchanged, aside from a new shine.The colorful concealer wrap was, sadly, just temporary.But then, why mess with what’s become a New York City landmark in its decade and a half of existence?The store is positioned in one of the most highly trafficked corners of the city, at the southeast corner of Central Park, directly across from the Plaza (and perhaps less attractively to some, two blocks north of a certain presidential tower).
Mindmore utvecklar en digital plattform för kognitiv testning vid utredning av demens, depression och utmattningssyndrom.Nu tar bolaget in totalt 7,5 miljoner kronor i en kapitalrunda.Bland investerarna finns statliga Almi Invest, Sting och flera privata investerare, till exempel börsbolaget Elektas grundare Laurent Leksell genom en stiftelse.Pengarna från emissionen ska gå till vidareutveckling av tjänsten, marknadsintroduktion och försäljning.Mindmore grundades 2017 av Martin Löfbom, Fredrik Wetterhall och Sara Wallén, som också är vd på företaget, men har hittills inte uppvisat någon omsättning.Bolagets plattform mäter patientens kognitiva förmågor genom att bland annat testa minne, språk, exekutiva funktioner och reaktionssnabbhet.
The supermarket tried to embrace the future and got dragged back down thanks to a bunch of technologically-challenged cretins.That's not the exact quote, because no PR person in their right mind would cop up to that.But essentially that's what has happened, and now the shop in London that ditched its tills earlier this year in favour of having customers use its SmartShop Scan, Pay & Go app instead, is going back to the dark ages.The process should have been fairly simple; you head inside, grab and scan what you want, then use the QR code to leave the store so you can't play silly buggers and try to do a runner with anything.And just in case anything went wrong, you can find a help desk manned by an honest-to-goodness human being.But according to Sainsbury's blog post, the basic concept was missed by a lot of people who ended up queuing at the help desk to pay by cash or card.
