I cannot believe how many websites I m finding for businesses that do not work properly on mobile devices!Major news organizations, attorneys and even Apple s own website that introduces people to their new 7 Plus iPhone requires a magnifying glass to read the text even on one of the biggest phones in the world with one of the largest display screens.There is also a side scroll bug on the Apple website that prevents the entire top navigation menu from being displayed properly in vertical mode requiring users to flip to horizontal to even see the selections.In other words, your website needs to be responsive.No matter whether a visitor to your website is browsing on a laptop, iPad or a phone it simply needs to work.Scott Web Media specialists can redesign your website so that it is responsive to all devices.

Almost every fourth fatal accident, the consequences could have been milder, if the scene of the accident would have been the central railings or handrails should be installed better, I found the accident data of the institute OTI .Sometimes the railings might be too low or short, but most commonly the problem is the railing of the absence, either the average of the handrails or the other.the New, safer vehicles in the spread of waiting for railing solutions it is important to pay attention to.Railings can be used to improve the traffic safety of vehicles regardless to say I contacted the chief Tapio Koisaari notes.the Year 2015 engine traffic happens 198 fatal accident, which killed 222 people.there were 59 pedestrian traffic accident, which killed 30 pedestrians and 29 cyclists.
Ten years ago, I was in the early stages of the PhD programme in robotics at Carnegie Mellon University.The potential of these technologies was incredible, but up to that point, the focus had been overwhelmingly on applications in areas such as defence, space, manufacturing or pure research.Then, top autonomous driving research was funded almost exclusively by Darpa and other government agencies, and although large-scale autonomous cars have always been one of the dreams of robotics researchers, we would have all been shocked to see what is happening today: dozens of the biggest companies in the world led by a search-engine company , as well as highly funded startups, are collectively investing billions of dollars at the pursuit of the commercial autonomous car.Now there is a sense of inevitability to autonomous cars being a staple of our daily lives within a decade or sooner , with the only questions being the pace at which they will take over, and which of the companies chasing this prize will pull away from the pack.These developments in transportation are a great template for how robotics can disrupt even the most entrenched industries, and highlights a few themes that we will begin to see more frequently:• Incumbents will rarely be the ones that disrupt their own spaces.
Yep, Google I/O came and went without an official name for the latest and greatest version of Android, with the world's biggest search engine saying it was "too tough" to come up with a name by itself.It doesn't look like Google wants you to limit your ideas just to desserts, either.NameyMcNameFace, anyone?Android N borrows code from Chrome OS for "seamless" updates, that download and install in the background when you're not using it.There's a lot of behind-the-scenes tech tweaks going on too, mostly to help make Android a better platform for VR.There's still time for new features like the long rumoured support for 3D Touch-style pressure sensitive display tech before Android N arrives later in the year.
Google Home will be released later this yearGoogle has unveiled a voice-controlled, AI-powered robot assistant that can be ordered to turn the lights down, play music or order a taxi.Google Home, a pint-sized speaker and microphone combination, is designed to sit in a room and respond to its owner's every command, from answering questions to checking the weather.Google's Mario Queiroz unveils HomeThe device is similar to the Amazon Echo, which was released in the US in 2014.By always listening, Google Home can respond to any queries just by users saying "OK Google" and issuing a command, rather than having to type a phrase into a search engine or check emails to dig out flight details."Computing is evolving beyond phones, and people are using it in context across many scenarios, be it in their television, be it in their car, be it something they wear on their wrist or even something much more immersive," Google's chief executive Sundar Pichai said.Google, which unveiled Home at I/O, its annual developer conference, said it would be released later in the year.
Oracle Chief Executive Officer Safra Catz put an Old Testament spin on her company's software copyright battle with Google as she told jurors about an encounter with her adversary's top lawyer at a bat mitzvah in 2012.Catz's testimony in San Francisco federal court was intended to buttress what Oracle claims was Google's brazen theft of Java code to build its Android operating system, and to begin to explain how that theft caused the database maker damages of $9.3 billion.Catz's message: Google undercut Oracle's licensing revenue by co-opting Java to develop Android into the operating system now used in 80 percent of the world's mobile devices.Google took a language designed to "write once, run anywhere" across different computing platforms and "forked," or split into two, Oracle's Java community of programmers, she said.AdvertisementGoogle lifted and employed the code so that it would only run on Android, leading smartphone manufacturers such as Samsung Electronics, ZTE., and Motorola to adopt that platform, which the search engine company offered for free, and to cease paying Java licensing fees to Oracle, Catz testified."They use Android instead of taking a copy of our software."
Yesterday, Google was awarded a patent that proposes placing a strong adhesive on the hood of its autonomous cars.This way, pedestrians or cyclists who happen to find themselves being struck by a Googlemobile would be protected from what s called secondary impact.The patent was filed back in 2014 and seems to be designed as a temporary solution to keep the humans around the self-driving cars safe as autonomous technology improves:While such systems are being developed, it must be acknowledged that, on occasion, collisions between a vehicle and a pedestrian still occur.Such safety mechanisms may become unnecessary as accident-avoidance technology is being further developed, but at present it is desirable to provide vehicles with pedestrian safety mechanisms.As for what kind of glue Google is planning to smear across its hoods, it s described in the patent as having some kind of eggshell -like coating over the main adhesive layer so the car doesn t drive around scooping up insects and other small animals like actual flypaper.Nissan s pop up engine hood uses tiny explosives to slightly raise the hood of the vehicle once it senses an impact to help stop pedestrians from hitting their heads.
As the rumours predicted, Google used the opening presentation of its annual developer conference, I/O, to reveal a new personal assistant aimed at the home.Called Google Home and voice-activated with the entire power of Google s search engine built into it, Home is set to launch later this year.The device connects to your home WiFi network and can also sync with Chromecast devices, meaning it can control TVs as well as other connected devices including speakers and smart appliances.The device has a striking similarity function-wise to Amazon s Echo, which launched last year – something even Google CEO Sundar Pichai referenced when announcing the device.At the heart of Home is the updated and supposedly more intelligent Google app software and the new Google Assistant.This is said to be better at understanding context and able to offer better proactive suggestions to users as a result.
Volvo has given us the first glimpse of its new 40 Series cars, in the shape of two new concepts: an aggressive crossover and a punchy sedan.Built on Volvo's Compact Modular Architecture CMA , the new cars aim to distill the style, safety, and technology of the award-winning XC90 SUV and the upcoming S90 and V90 luxury sedan and wagon, down to a mass-market price.That flows nicely into Volvo's hockey-stick shaped rear light clusters, and a rear that has elements of Porsche Macan to it.Like the Concept 40.1 it has Volvo's signature "Thor's Hammer" lights, but they flow into a high shoulder line and partially-concealed rear doors.In addition to gasoline-only cars, there'll be a pure all-electric option, along with a new T5 Twin Engine.That, based on Volvo's 3-cylinder gas engine paired with a new 7-speed dual clutch transmission and an electric motor, will borrow heavily from the T8 plug-in hybrid system the XC90 and S90 have, but be front-wheel drive rather than all-wheel drive.
The search engine compares the semantic language – the real meaning of the content – in the documents to reveal unseen patterns and connections in fractions of a second.I saw a demo of the platform in January at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, and it has a lot of interesting potential.Omnity s basic search is still free, but its subscription packages and special information databases start at $100.The specialized information that Omnity is offering includes Securities and Exchange Commission filings and records, patents, Library of Congress data, court precedents and legal records, scientific journals, pharmaceutical and biomedical trials, financial reports, and U.S. Congress reports and legal history.Discovering unexpected connections between diverse knowledge domains reveals unique insights that sharpen focus and drive innovation.We created Omnity to help scientists, engineers, medical professionals, lawyers and financial people cope with the explosion of data and knowledge that is happening in every field of study.Omnity is designed to be powerful yet easy to use, and is priced so that organizations large and small can access this transformative technology.Unlike conventional search, Omnity said it can find related documents even when they do not cite or link to one another.The company is offering introductory pricing of its commercial service in five tiers, with the first month free for all paid tiers:

Hedge fund Corvex Partners has revealed that it owns 10 per cent of the veteran streaming music company – and that selling out to a larger company is preferable to pursuing a "costly and uncertain business plan."In a US Securities and Exchange Commission filing, Corvex expresses dismay over the return of founder Tim Westergren as CEO.The hedge fund doesn't think it's worthless – just that it would be worth more to shareholders if it sold now at a premium."Pandora's logged-in mobile user base, deep reach and engagement, and differentiated song recommendation engine are unique assets, and we believe a large, well-capitalized acquirer could further accelerate the company's competitive advantages over time through synergies in areas such as technology and engineering, ad monetization, and customer acquisition and marketing.Simply put, we believe Pandora can become an even more differentiated product and a more valuable business as a part of a larger enterprise," Corvex notes.Corvex points out that Pandora has made only modest gains since IPO relative to the market.
The crazy future of transport: in pictures View GalleryFor a jet or rocket to be classified as hypersonic, it must travel at five times the speed of sound, or Mach 5."You could fly long distances over the Earth very, very quickly.The Antipode would travel at 24 times the speed of soundThe team plans to run 10 trials on the rocket, which has a supersonic combustion engine that uses oxygen for fuel, making it lighter than traditional rockets.Boeing and the German space agency are also working on the project with the US and Australian militaries.Earlier this year a concept design for the Antipode, which could travel from London to New York in just 11 minutes at 12,427 miles per hour, was released.The X-15, operated by the United States Air Force and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration secured the official world record for the highest speed ever reached by a manned, powered aircraft.
It looks like Google may be changing the name of their app indexing protocol from Google App Indexing to Firebase App Indexing.Last night, I captured screen shots of Google changing the Google search developer page from saying Google App Indexing to Firebase App Indexing.But it seems Google changed it back this morning to just App Indexing.Yes, Firebase is a company Google acquired back in October 2014.So it is possible Google would renamed their mobile efforts Firebase and bring App Indexing into that.They also announced more features around this that we covered over here.
Back in October 2014, Bing enabled searching by emoji, but Google was unable to return any results when you used emoji characters.Now that has changed — You can now search on Google desktop or mobile using emoji characters.Try it by searching for or or other characters, and Google will no longer show you that there are no results; instead, Google will show you results for the emoji character.Here are some screen shots:It also works on mobile, as you d expect:Again, the key difference between how Google handles emoji searches and how Bing does it is that Google shows you a result set for the emoji character with emoji results, and Bing just shows you for the character.Hat tip to David Naylor for spotting this.About The Author

Russian space agency Roscosmos has released an impressive rocketcam video shot from the Soyuz-2.1a which last month became the first mighty lifter to depart the country's new Vostochny cosmodrome.The edited highlights footage shows the rocket leaving the pad, the separation of two of its four liquid-fuelled boosters, then core stage separation as the third stage engine fires.The curved structure that's seen falling away about eight seconds later at around 1:16 is one of the aerodynamic panels which "connected the second and third stages", as Spaceflight Now helpfully explains.Finally, the Volga upper stage, with its satellite payload visible, is released into the wide black yonder.The Volga features a restartable hypergolic fuel motor, which in this case was later fired twice to place three satellites into their final orbits.It's just about visible in the ground-based footage of the Vostochny launch at 5:28 , but here's a beautiful example captured during the lofting of Europe's Sentinel-1A satellite in April 2014 fast forward to 2:18 :Vostochny cosmodrome is still a work in progress, but the facility will ultimately host 10 launches a year, reducing Russian reliance on Baikonur in Kazakhstan.
