This week introduced the Lenovo-owned Motorola two new smartphones - Moto Moto Z and Z Force. Rumors have been in the spring claimed that the Z series will replace the existing X-Series, which Motorola launched in autumn, 2013. But the Moto X will live on, according to the statement from Motorola. The manufacturer says that the two phone series have similarities but they ultimately provide different experiences, so customers can find the perfect cell phone. It is therefore possible that we will see a new Moto X later this year, alongside the Moto Moto Z and Z Force.
You can, of course, watch all the games live on the BBC and ITV for free in the UK and on ESPN and others in the USA check here for international broadcasters , but if you're after something beyond the usual TV punditry, it's to pod-land you must go.The catalyst for live TV coverage of Serie A was Gazza's transfer to Rome's Lazio, but the highlight was the café-based banter from presenter James Richardson.He's still doing it on BT Sport's Sunday Night Football Show, but his best work is the decade-old Guardian Football Weekly podcast for The Guardian newspaper, which will transform into Euro 2016 Football Daily for the duration of the tournament.Anyone from veteran commentator John Motson to Danny Mills and the easily riled Steve Claridge can feature.The Total Soccer ShowMuch of the best and least cliché-riddled analysis of British and European football comes from other continents, and that's certainly true for this independent podcast.Though the shouted contributions of Kartik Krishnaiyer can be a little grating, the serious, considered opinions of UK football journalist Kristan Heneage of ITV News and Yahoo UK are the highlight.
The meetings, held since 1954, bring together around 130 business and political leaders from Europe and North America.This year ten main topics are up for discussion, including "Cyber Security" and "Technological Innovation," in talks that will last for three days."Thanks to the private nature of the conference, the participants are not bound by the conventions of their office or by pre-agreed positions.Furthermore, no resolutions are proposed, no votes are taken, and no policy statements are issued."Several members of the technology elite are regulars at Bilderberg, with Alphabet chairman Eric Schmidt attending as usual, accompanied by steering committee member and well-heeled Gawker nemesis Peter Thiel.The US "political landscape" is on the list too, aided no doubt by the presence of former Republican presidential challenger and Trump's bête noir Lindsey Graham, and Henry Kissinger, who hasn't missed a Bilderberg session in years.
Michael Passoff of Clean Yield Asset Management wanted to know the extent of Google s use of dark money non-profits .She noted that at Google, Class C shares, with ten votes per share, are closely held by management insiders .Studies have shown that excessive voting control given to insiders leads to poor performance over the long term, she noted.And if you could figure out a way to do things like meat from plants and from growing, from cellular organisms and so for and there is now a huge industry right?Asked how often Google executives lobbied directly by detailing its White House visits, Schmidt offered an answer straight from the Vladislav Kurkov playbook of Dark Arts: I think we have no way of knowing exactly what's true, I mean that s been reported and we definitely have made visits to the White House, said Schmidt.Nothing is true?

Serpentine Pavilion 2016 designed by Bjarke Ingels Group BIG ; 10 June – 9 October ; All images: Iwan Baan Each year, the opening of the Serpentine Pavilion heralds the beginning of summer with a temporary structure installed in a London garden.Depending on where you stand, it s either a very convincing take on a contemporary Minecraft cathedral, or a fancy modern house for Q*bert.The way they made the cubes is a method called pultrusion where fiberglass is pulled through a mold to keep the fibers in the resin perfectly straight, resulting in a very strong object.Which means the structure is sturdy enough to climb on, but you can only go as high as a wire that politely suggests ok that s high enough, thank you.If the first thing you thought when looking at this is that it looks exactly like Minecraft, well, even Ingels said it himself:It s actually pretty amazing to see how different the structure looks from different angles.And sometimes it looks like a pixelated limestone canyon.
A 3.5-star rating?That s why Literary Hub, a site dedicated to book news, essays and excerpts, has launched Book Marks, which they call a Rotten Tomatoes for books, aggregating professional critics takes on new literary novels and assigning them a letter grade.Literary HubBecause book reviewers aren t prone to slapping a rating on their takes, Lit Hub editors — many of whom have worked as professional critics themselves — assign the reviews letter grades.I think books are an extremely important part of our culture, and I think professional critics are people who devote their lives to engaging with books in a substantive way, Hunter said, explaining why Lit Hub embarked on the project.A book reviewer has a responsibility to talk about a book s worth within the context of its peers and the history of its genre and the works of other authors that are tackling similar subjects.Further complaints, most recently slung by Bookslut founder Jessa Crisipin, center on the perceived nepotism of book reviewing.
But in reality the controversial law s effects have been much broader by allowing game developers, music and film companies and others to keep a tight control on how consumers use their copyrighted works, preventing them in some cases from making copies of their purchased products for their own use or from jailbreaking smartphones and other devices to use them in ways the manufacturers dislike.The DMCA has two problematic sections: section 1201, which deals with the circumvention of copy-protections and section 512, which allows a copyright holder to send a so-called takedown notice to web sites and others believed to be infringing a copyright.A study released this year by researchers at UC Berkeley and Columbia University found that about a third of DMCA takedown notices are on shaky legal grounds, based on a sampling of some 108 million takedown notices issued over a six-month period.Bogus takedown notices fall into many categories, but one example involves a San Francisco news station that once used the DMCA to try to erase a reporting blunder.Eventually, regulators learned that Volkswagen had embedded secret code in its software to help its vehicle cheat emissions tests.Adobe urged the FBI to act but had to withdraw its complaint after the security community rose up in protest.
Uber Technologies Inc. will on Monday reverse fare cuts announced in South Africa two months ago, saying demand didn t grow enough to ensure that drivers made the same amount of money as at the previous price levels.We cut prices to encourage more riders to use Uber, Alon Lits, general manager for sub-Saharan Africa, said by e-mail.At the time, we promised that if those price cuts didn t work out for drivers -- because they weren t busy enough and therefore earning more -- fares would go back up, he said.Uber cut fares by 20 percent in South African cities in April to improve demand for the ride-hailing service during the colder winter months.The U.S. company increasingly has to compete with similar services entering the African market, with Taxify of Estonia starting the service in Johannesburg and Cape Town this year.Uber drivers have also been involved in violent clashes with operators of metered taxis.Uber currently has about 4,000 drivers in South Africa and plans to grow the number to 15,000 in the next two years.
Tony Fadell brought the iPod to life at Apple Inc., ushered in the iPhone, started Nest Labs in 2010 to modernize home gadgets and sold to Google for $3.2 billion in 2014.Greg Duffy, founder of Dropcam, chimed in, saying he made a mistake selling the camera startup to Nest in 2014.He s been quietly investing in about 100 companies and has felt the need to coach these startups and perhaps chase another new venture.I just know that when I look at the numbers and I say we shipped four new products, when we have millions of customers, happy customers, when you look at the star ratings that s the reality of the situation.Do I wish I could ship more products?I respect what Larry and Sergey Brin have built.I think, just like what happened in 99 and 2000, which was everyone got well ahead of themselves, and we didn t have Sarb-Ox Sarbanes-Oxley, stricter public-company rules back then, so we could float them on the Street fast.
Doctors believe they have found a way to reverse the long-term debilitating effects of stroke to give patients the ability to walk, move their arms and get back to normal life.Patients who were in wheelchairs are walking now.For most patients, at least a full year had passed since their stroke — well past the time when further recovery might be hoped for.Into these patients brains the neurosurgeons injected SB623 cells - stem cells derived from the bone marrow of two donors and then modified to beneficially alter the cells ability to restore neurologic function.It felt like it was almost dead.Although the results are promising, Steinberg cautioned that further trials are needed to test the procedure.
Just 2mm across and finer than a human hair, the tiny device can magnify nanoscale objects and gives a sharper focus than top-end microscope lenses."The conventional fabrication of shaped lenses depends on moulding and essentially goes back to 19th Century technology.Electronics manufacturers making microprocessors and memory chips routinely craft components far smaller than the pillars in the flat lenses.There are many other potential uses: mass-produced cameras for quality control in factories, light-weight optics for virtual-reality headsets, even contact lenses.The precise character of the lens depends on the layout and composition of the pillars.It is also cheap.
If you nabbed a Fire HD 10 tablet during one of Amazon s stellar sales, chances are you re part of a growing chorus of displeased buyers who don t like its cheap fit and finish.Review: Amazon s new Fire HD 8 and 10 are better as vending machines than as tabletsRelaunching an existing tablet with a new metal finish may sound unorthodox, but Amazon is taking the high road.However, other than the shiny new exterior, there aren t any changes to speak of — the processor inside is the same, which should make owners of plastic Fire 10 tablets feel a bit less disappointed.The tablet offers competitive specs for the price and features a 10.1-inch 1,280 x 800 pixel screen, a 1.5GHz quad-core processor, Dolby-calibrated stereo speakers, a front-facing camera and complimentary 5-megapixel rear shooter, a MicroSD card slot, and a battery that lasts up to 8 hours on a charge.Amazon took the wraps off the tablet in September, and while its build quality left a bad taste in many buyers mouths, reviewers immediately lauded its slimness.Lenovo s Tab 2 A10 offers a higher-resolution screen and longer-lasting battery for $200, or $30 cheaper than Amazon s tablet.
'I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears, sweat and enhanced washing machine resistance.'Getting into the "blood, toil, tears and sweat" spirit, Carney added: "It is stronger than paper and can better withstand being repeatedly folded into wallets or scrunched up inside pockets.Polymer notes can survive a splash of Claret, a flick of cigar ash, the nip of a bulldog, and even a spin in the washing machine afterwards to boot."Karsh legendarily relieved Churchill of his cigar just before pressing the shutter, hence his somewhat indignant expression.Pic: Bank of EnglandThe £5 note will hit the streets on 13 September, followed by the Jane Austen tenner in 2017, and a JMW Turner £20 in 2020.The switch to polymer currency - already packing wallets over 30 other countries, including Oz and Canada - will offer "enhanced resilience" against counterfeiting, the Bank of England assures.

Samsung has finally launched its mobile payment service, Samsung Pay, in Europe, though it s only available in Spain for now.Already in South Korea, the U.S., and China, Samsung Pay is similar to other mobile payment services — such as Apple Pay and Android Pay — in that it lets users upload as many as 10 bank cards to their NFC-enabled phone and make payments through contactless terminals.At the time of writing, Samsung Pay-compatible devices include the Samsung Galaxy S7, S7 edge, S6, S6 edge and S6 edge .Today s news comes two weeks after Google launched its equivalent service in Europe for the first time, with Android Pay landing in the U.K., its first market outside the U.S. By launching in Spain, Samsung becomes the first such payment service to arrive on the scene, so it could have first-mover advantage.But when — or if — Google brings Android Pay to market there, Samsung will face stiff competition.We are proud that Spain is the first European market to introduce Samsung Pay, an innovative new service that we believe will mark a turning point both in Spaniards payments behavior and the evolution of the payments market as a whole, said Celestino Garcia, corporate vice president at Samsung Spain.The opportunity for Samsung Pay in Spain is significant, due to the high smartphone penetration rate and the digitalization of the banking sector.It has long been rumored that Samsung Pay would be arriving in Europe via the U.K. or Spain — we now know which of these the Korean tech titan has chosen for its entry point to the market, which means that the U.K. will likely be next.At launch, Samsung Pay will only be available for customers of CaixaBank and ImaginBank, with Abanca and Banco Sabadell customers added to the mix soon.
