It will let users add live-updating spreadsheets to documentsCredit: QuipQuip, a Silicon Valley startup that s taking on the giants of the productivity software market, announced a major update to its spreadsheet capabilities Wednesday that s aimed at bringing its service more in line with Microsoft Excel.The service s spreadsheets now include features like the ability to merge cells, validate data and filter information in a sheet.These updates are key to helping Quip compete with its biggest rivals in the cloud productivity suite space: Microsoft s Office 365 and Google Apps for Work.That means the executive summary of a report can have the same data in a spreadsheet table and in a paragraph, because they re linked together.Taylor estimates they make up 80 percent to 90 percent of the users in a company.Of course, Quip s competitors aren t standing still.

Payphone production employs a rapidly increasing number of elements of the Tampere plant, as well as your pile of domestic subcontractors. Tampere Sarankulma ten thousand square meters in the halls has room to grow. The pace brought the company revenues of more than EUR five million last year, and this year it is the swing of EUR twenty million. The most important thing, however, was that the customers were satisfied and bought more. Since then, the same pattern has been repeated many times. Sarankulma Framery built a production line, where the payphone modules are piled up on the preparation of Finnish sub-components.
The airline Easyjet recently announced a pair of shoes with the help of vibration in the sole of the shoe can show where to go. If left shoe will vibrate to swing left and right shoe vibrate, so it's time to turn right. The shoes are connected via Bluetooth to an associated app in your phone which then, via GPS, has an eye on where you are and where to go. The shoes named Sneakairs and is currently available only in prototype form, but in the future Easyjet hopes to be able to sell these shoes for their passengers. wired.com
NASA engineers think about it rather a lot, which is why they ve been dropping the new Orion module, full of crash-test dummies, into a huge swimming pool.The space agency points out that for the briefest of moments, even after decelerations with parachutes, the impact with the sea creates the mission s greatest deceleration and with that, some of the greatest forces on the human body.The engineers do the only sensible thing and load up a module with crash test dummies, then drop it into NASA Langley Research Center s 20-foot-deep Hydro Impact Basin.Not only can we learn how the structure reacts to a water impact in these tests, but we can also understand how splashdown loads are transmitted to the seats and crew, explains Mark Baldwin, who s the crew injury lead for Orion at Lockheed Martin.So far, the team has carried out four drops into the pool.But it will now embark on a series of swing tests that investigate what happens if the capsule enters the water at unusual angles.

Nokia gives HMD Global for the use of Nokia's trade mark rights. Nokia does not have to bear the risk of the contract just about anything, and it can be accessed through a single partner scaled its brand, as well as the licensed technology. However, the Convention should not be likely to substantially swing current of approximately EUR 800 million of annual Technologies Unit licensing revenue stream, Rautanen write a review, on Thursday morning. Rautanen According to a particularly lucrative contract to Nokia this is not worth waiting for, even if the brand and technology licensing is Nokia, a good and profitable business. First of all, the smartphone market has already left the market saturation and the earning potential is very limited.
The bidding price for Yahoo's core business could be in the range of $2 billion to $3 billion, the Wall Street Journal reported on Thursday.That's significantly lower than the $4 billion to $8 billion range a lot of Wall Street analysts were expecting.But soon, CNBC's David Faber disputed those numbers, calling it "completely wrong," and pointed out the reported price would be lower than even the lowest bids Yahoo received in the first round of bidding last month, citing his own sources.Why all the chaos?There are a lot of parties involved in Yahoo's bidding process, so it's hard to point to one simple reason."We think it is unclear as to what is being bid for, and it is important to understand that there are various assets that Yahoo can potentially sell," Peck wrote in a note published Friday.In other words, Yahoo owns a lot of different properties that it could potentially sell as its "core" business, and depending on what each bidder wants as part of its deal, the bidding price could significantly vary.Peck notes that the $2 billion to $3 billion range would only make sense if the bid was just for Yahoo's online advertising business, which includes its online properties.That part of the business is generating roughly $300 million in earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization EBITDA , and with a 5X multiple, which is still lower than the 7X multiple Verizon paid for AOL, Yahoo's internet business would be roughly valued at $1.5 billion.But if you include Yahoo's web intellectual property, which Peck estimates to be in the range of $1 billion to $3 billion, the "core" value would instantly jump.Yahoo could also potentially throw its real estate property and rights to Yahoo Japan royalties, each estimated to be worth roughly $1 billion, into the mix, and the value of the deal would swing all over the place.Yahoo has never defined what exactly it's selling as its "core" business.That's not much of a surprise since Yahoo's running an auction for its various properties and is looking to maximize its return.
A fresh round of staff layoffs has reportedly hit multiple divisions of technology goliath IBM, with dozens of soon-to-be-former employees speaking out on condition of anonymity about how long years of service have been bookended by the sudden notice of termination.Meanwhile, in the UK, staff from the firm's Global Technology Services GTS have been informed that the corporate axe is expected to swing throughout the month of June, which will be the second round of redundancies to hit UK shores within three months.Our source confirmed to IBTimes UK the next round of RA notices is planned for the EMEA region next month – June 2016.Four month Work End Date and a month's severance."Just got the RA call from my manager," another person added.Move to the cloudFor its part, IBM has maintained it has "more than 20,000" open positions within the company – which is increasing looking to move its focus towards cloud computing and AI technology to stay ahead of the curve and competition .
Microsoft takes another swing at Google's productivity suite with the new featureA new Skype for Business integration makes it possible for users to hold live chats to discuss documents stored in OneDrive for Business and SharePoint Online.Microsoft's attempts to catch up with Google in the online collaboration space took a step forward Wednesday, when the company announced that it's giving business users live chat in Office Online.When more than one person is working on a shared document inside Word, Excel, OneNote or PowerPoint Online, they'll see a chat button show up in the Web app's toolbar.The chats aren't designed to replace traditional document collaboration tools like leaving comments and tracking changes, but they can help a team of people all looking at the same document to better work together in a more rapid-fire way.It's a feature that has been core to Google's Docs productivity suite for quite some time, and this update means that businesses using Office 365 have another reason to consider sticking with Microsoft rather than switching to one of its competitors.Microsoft has recently rolled out a number of other updates to Office, including new watch face support in Outlook on Android Wear and the launch of SharePoint for iOS, which the company announced earlier this month.

Ron AmadeoA report from Bloomberg claims that Google is going to take yet another swing at making manufacturers care about Android updates.At Google I/O 2011, Google triumphantly announced the "Android Update Alliance," an agreement where Google and OEMs would work to ensure that devices got 18 months of updates.A year later everyone promptly forgot about it, and it hasn't been mentioned since.Nexus devices and a handful of OEM flagships have started to get these updates, but for most Android users, this is just more code that never makes it to their devices.That's a lot of devices that not only lack the latest features but are also missing out on security updates.With Google Play Services, Google has re-architected Android to make the underlying OS version more or less not matter for many feature implementations.
Some abilities peak in early adulthood, while others don't reach their maximum potential until approximately age 50.And while researchers have used a variety of tests to analyze different aspects of mental acuity, we now have an especially powerful way of demonstrating the differences between young brains and those belonging to older minds: competitive video games.In a recent episode of the PBS Digital Studios YouTube show "It's Okay To Be Smart," biologist Joe Hanson analyzes what researchers have learned about the brain by studying video gamers.As Hanson explains, researchers have long used games like chess as ways to show how certain brains are better at processing information than others.But chess's pace and rule set limit the amount of information it can show us about the way our brains work in real world scenarios.Now, researchers are particularly interested in studying the real time strategy game "StarCraft II.The sheer number of things happening in a real time strategy game like "StarCraft II" means that researchers think it's actually a pretty good analogue for showing how our brains deal with the cognitive stresses of reacting to all the stimuli in the real world.By studying thousands and thousands of "StarCraft" matches, researchers have been able to figure out how players win and how their brains are reacting to the changing world on screen.Hanson says that elite players regularly conduct 300 "actions per minute" APM, clicking on a unit or giving it orders and in battle, they often top 600 APM.You need to be able to move faster than the other person, and this is where young brains excel.Canadian researchers analyzed how long it took for a person to act after they saw a different part of a game map.As Hanson points out, if a 39-year-old player reacts 150 milliseconds slower than his 24-year-old opponent after every map move, that might essentially cost that player the equivalent of 30 seconds of action in a 15 minute match, enough to swing the tide.Still, not all hope is lost for older competitors.
"It's an interesting anecdote we were reminded of during a visit to the NSA's public museum in Maryland, where it has an exhibit on the so-called "Black Chamber" founded in 1919 by Herbert O. Yardley.Officially known as The Cipher Bureau, it was America's first peacetime organization dedicated to code breaking.Located in New York City and disguised behind a public-facing commercial code company, its existence was a highly-secret affair that was jointly funded by the State Department and the US Army.Throughout the 1920's, the bureau cracked thousands of diplomatic messages."But the peace throughout the 1920's meant there was less to intercept, and its budget was continually reduced.Then its time came to a close soon after President Herbert Hoover came into office."Gentlemen do not read each other's mail," he wrote in his memoirs.That attitude didn't hold for long, of course.A law that closed the "loophole" and prevented any further secrets from being revealed was passed two years later.Read the original article on Tech Insider.
The team says that the same forces that drive ice ages here on Earth drive ice ages on Mars."We found an accelerated accumulation rate of ice in the uppermost 100 to 300 meters of the polar cap," said Dr. Isaac Smith, a postdoctoral researcher at SwRI and lead author of a paper published in the May 27 issue of Science.Radar observations of the ice cap provide a detailed history of ice accumulation and erosion associated with climate change."The team says that Mars has seasonal cycles along with longer cycles that have impact on the distribution of ice on the planet.While these changes are not severe on Earth on Mars the scientists say that the Red Planet's tilt can change as much as 60-degrees on a scale of hundreds of thousands to millions of years."Because the climate on Mars fluctuates with larger swings in axial tilt, and ice will distribute differently for each swing, Mars would look substantially different in the past than it does now," said Smith.

Leggy excavator for work in the vineyards. photographer: Hyundai If you want to sell excavators in the French Champagne district have to be inventive. The French retailer excavator Sermat TP is active in France's Champagne district. On behalf of a local vineyard, they have done a Hyundai mini excavator leggy by raising the undercarriage, so that the 3.5 tonne machine can move between the vines without crushing them. The machine is also equipped with so-called automatic swing top, which prevents digging arm from swinging out too far to the sides and damage the valuable plants. Sermat TP has patented modifications, and now hopes to sell more goof-diggers to wineries around the world.

Even more crucial is the new open-world approach, which unlocks a vast array of options for taking on missions and manipulating the environment and its inhabitants – in blisteringly intense co-op, of course.And despite the look, the Ghosts are certainly ready to react to the wide array of situations that follow in this huge tactical playground.What the open world allows is a true sense of freedom: these missions can be tackled in so many different ways, and even with each of your four co-op operatives or three A.I.That's messy, but it can get the job done – plus you get to unleash some hell from the barrel of your assault rifle, which is always a perk.Only in Wildlands, it's a co-op experience with three mates all making important decisions, and loads of options amidst the open setting.Also, given the strength of The Division and its striking recreation of New York City, Ubisoft's living worlds are certainly on an upward swing.
