There are many areas of marketing technology that are considered “hot” right now.And yet MarketsandMarkets forecasts that the global event management software market alone is expected to grow from $5.10 billion in 2014 to $7.78 billion by 2019.Despite all the event creation, promotion, attendee check-in, and management solutions available — both at the low end and within the enterprise — many companies still run their respective seminars and conferences exactly as they used to decades ago.In B2B circles, the days of stapling business cards to manually completed “lead sheets” are still with us.Even now, with smartphones and tablets as prevalent as they are, double-entry of attendees is rife, and sales reps have no clue when an “important person” walks into the conference hall.Today, Attend wants to change that for good with the release of a new mobile app that augments its existing event management platform.
Saab announced on Wednesday it would postpone the new Gripen E-a fighter jet the first flight of the year.so far, the first flight is expected to happen already this year, such as Saab tentatively announced in may, the presentation of the machine conference in Linköping."we have a clear plan where to stage the first flight is flown, but still we do not disclose the exact date, otherwise than in 2017."Saab said the moratorium does not mean a change in the first of the new gripen of the delivery schedule: the Swedish and Brazilian air force ordered aircraft deliveries will begin as planned in 2019.the first flight of a postponement of the previously planned due to the company according to the fact that the Gripen E's systems tests are going better than anticipated."we Have decided to perform a full software qualification confirmation before the next flight instead, that we'd conduct the verification parts in, what is today's practice in the defense industry."

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.
Similarly, in the B2B world, artificial intelligence (AI) and predictive technologies represent a disruptive shift that’s forcing companies to reimagine how they operate.With that in mind, here are eight questions everyone is asking about self-driving cars, each of which has an important parallel that helps frame AI’s impact on business and society at large.Google’s self-driving cars have already driven 1,210,676 miles yet, as of July this year, there had only been 14 accidents — all caused by human error, not by the software.Given the fact that around 33,000 people die in traffic accidents in the U.S. every year, and much of blame falls to distracted drivers, there is a huge opportunity to make our roads safer.In the B2B world, very few of our decisions are life or death, but there is still important revenue at stake.When the models are live, someone needs to monitor the impact of any changes and watch for drift in performance to ensure continued accuracy.
Users have long complained about performance issues and it sucking up battery and last year Facebook s chief product officer, Chris Cox, took the unusual step of making his staff ditch their iPhones and move to Android until they sorted out the issues.But the problems have remained, and recently they led the Android blogger Russell Holly to dump the app, starting a chain reaction which revealed something rather interesting about the app s performance.Prompted by Holly s revelation that life on Android was better without Facebook s app, Reddit user pbrandes eth tested the app s impact on the performance of an LG G4.They found that when the Facebook and Facebook Messenger apps were uninstalled, other apps on the smartphone launched 15% faster.They found similar results when testing for app loading performance.Over the course of a day my Huawei Nexus 6P had 20% more battery.
Media Portal is one of the closest alternatives to Windows Media Centre, and one of the slickest Photograph: Media PortalWhat do I need to do to watch a DVD in Windows 10?It was disabled when I upgraded from Windows 7.PC manufacturers normally add it to the PCs that ship with a DVD or Blu-ray drive, often including Cyberlink, Roxio or similar third-party software.Also, Microsoft probably recognised that there was even less point in paying for a DVD player when users either had one already eg Cyberlink or could easily download a free one.Briefly, Windows Media Player is a media player that can rip and burn audio CDs, and sync with portable devices.

Today he's the cofounder of Qualtrics, working with his younger brother Ryan Smith, who is founder and CEO.The company was also founded with their father Dr. Scott Smith, a professor at Brigham Young University.While younger brother Ryan has always been the flashy, stylish frontman of Qualtrics, Jared was the behind-the-scenes product genius that built the first version of the product (as well as subsequent versions) that brought the company initial success.He had been working as a successful exec at Google before his brother prodded into joining Qualtrics instead.He got an internship at word-processing-software maker WordPerfect, which was bought by Novell.He worked his way up to product manager by age 18.
Well, most of the time that wasn’t just coincidence – those photos were taken during what’s commonly known as the golden hour, also known as the magic hour.Also, while the terms are nearly synonymous, golden hour actually has a definition based on the measurable angle of the sun to the horizon, whereas magic hour is a broader term that sometimes incorporates both the golden hour and the blue hour — another measurable time based on the sun’s angle to the horizon.The temperature of the light during this time is, as the name suggests, in the yellow range when it comes to the light spectrum.When the sun is very low in the sky, its angle is more drastic in relation to the earth, making shadows longer and softer.Having long shadows in your shot helps show all three dimensions of the world when you’re trying to capture them in a two dimensional space.Shooting portraits during the golden hour

You heard me correctly, I said “meh.”I’m not talking about the “meh” used to ironically describe something beautiful/awe-inspiring; like when your friend uploads a beautiful sunset to their Instagram story and captions it “meh” (yeah, yeah, we know you are such a jetsetter).Hailing from the mobile app analytics industry, I’ve seen many founders pour tons of hours and thousands of bucks into apps that just don’t perform or deliver a good experience.Plus, when the idea comes from your own experience, it can make it even more challenging to detach yourself from the concept and look at the app from an objective viewpoint.If you have an idea, go out and validate it, but validate it the right way.The problem of ego oftentimes leads to what is known as confirmation bias.
It doesn't seem like there are any other cars on the market right now that have as many easter eggs as Tesla's cars do.Most of them are even hidden directly in front of the driver, but chances are you haven't even seen them.If you press button on your Tesla's charge handle, the light around the charge port flashes rainbow colors.Something to keep you entertained while you wait for your car to charge.If you've purchased Tesla's Autopilot software, turn it on four times quickly to display a Mario Kart-like rainbow road on your gauge cluster screen.Elon Musk referred to this rainbow Easter egg as a "psychedelic cowbell road."
Installing apps is a time consuming pain in the arse sometimes.Google just announced it s brilliant solution to this problem: Instant Apps.What s more exciting is that Instant Apps will be compatible all the way back to devices running Android Jellybean.The most common way to activate an Instant App download seems to be clicking on a link, but Google also suggests it could be done in other ways.In one example, an NFC tap actives the download of a payments app at a parking meter.Although Google s announcing the initiative today, it s not ready for prime time just yet.
Google, not being particularly amenable to letting other robots into your life has unveiled its own version, Home.Just by speaking, you can order an Uber, play Spotify, set alarms or just ask questions.Duo, meanwhile, is quite simply Google's answer to FaceTime or Skype, allowing internet video calls.Both are coming for iOS and Android in the summer.Google's next software operating system update for smartphones and tablets, codenamed Android N, has been released as a developer previewThe new system will be named after a tasty treat, and could be called Nerds, Nutella or NougatNew features include split-app multitasking, the ability to reply to messages from within a notification and increased battery efficiencyGoogle has been dipping its toes in low-end VR with Google Cardboard for a couple of years, but is stepping up by bringing it to Android N.A new feature called Daydream will allow certain phones to up their performance to deliver VR, and Google is releasing a Play Store, Street View and YouTube for VR.Google is also thinking beyond the limitations of Cardboard, and has produced a blueprint for a headset which it will share with third-parties, alongside a natty little controller reminiscent of the Siri-powered pointer Apple unveiled alongside the latest Apple TV last year.
During the recently concluded Google I / O 2016 event featured the American sökjätten, just as speculation before the event took place hinted, the new, and the Google-developed virtual reality platform Daydream. Daydream is a much more advanced version of its predecessor Cardboard and is both software and hardware-dependent and is closely linked with the upcoming version of Android, in short, called N. To ensure that it works as well as possible, Google has developed a standard that interested manufacturers must adapt their hardware for, such as special sensors and displays of a certain quality and standard. By doing Daydream dependent on specific hardware, instead of just consist of software, Google can ensure that delay, repsonstider and image flow will be as good as the technology permits, resulting in a better experience for the user. Although Daydream is still in its early years, Google has been able to find no less than eight manufacturers who are interested in producing Daydream compatible devices; Samsung, LG, HTC, Asus, Xiaomi, Huawei, ZTE and Alcatel. Missing from the list does unfortunately including Sony and Lenovo / Motorola, but we're guessing that many more manufacturers will join during 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."
