Michael Weitz and Abigail Tenembaum, founders of Virtuozo, coach everyone from TED speakers to CEOs to express their message effectively."Even the same audience is different at 9am on a Monday than it is after a long day of presentations at 5pm."That might mean throwing aside the PowerPoint, or adding in a personal anecdote if your message can go off-script."If you ask attendees of TED talks what drives them crazy, it's when speakers talk like they're reciting a memorised text," says Weitz."If you speak fast in a low voice, your impact will not be what it could have been.""Most people will put their foot on the accelerator," says Weitz.

Fang Binxing was forced to use a VPN to circumvent the Great Firewall of China Photograph: Kevin Frayer/Getty ImagesThe Father of China s internet censorship infrastructure, known as the Great Firewall of China, has been caught having to circumvent his own creation after attempting to display a website during a talk at the Harbin Institute of Technology in the Heilongjiang province of China.According to local reports, Fang Binxing attempted to display a South Korea website, which he said showed the views of South Koreans attempting to build similar infrastructure to China s firewall, but was blocked by said censorship system.Fang then had to resort to setting up a virtual private network VPN to circumvent the censorship, in full view of the lecture attendees, to display the site.Using VPNs to effectively make a tunnel through the Great Firewall of China to the outside internet world is a common, but frowned upon, practice used by many within China wishing to access western sites such as Facebook and Twitter.The UK also operates a system of censorship through court-ordered blocks of piracy sites by internet service providers, including the notorious Pirate Bay, which requires users to employ similar techniques such as VPNs to access.

We have in recent years tried some of smartphone models from Doro, the Swedish manufacturer that specializes in mobile phones for seniors. It looks great as a table clock when you charge the handset, but the location makes it impractical to hold if you want to upload, and such ring simultaneously. This does not mean that it is tough. The camera in front for self-portraits and video calls are a completely different story, it makes us greatly disappointed. Here sits a TINPOT VGA sensor gives blurry and grainy images even in good lighting conditions, and constant motion blur. Anyone who wants to talk to Skype with your kids should probably consider a laptop or better tablet instead.

The new app will be available later this summer.On stage at the Google I/O developer conference, Erik Kay explained how assistive technology can make messaging more productive and expressive.Messaging isn t just about text; smart replies have stickers and emojis too, Kay said.Another interesting aspect of Allo is when you send people photos through the app.During a demo on stage, a picture of a Burmese dog was shown and Allo displayed three options.You could either say awww, or perhaps cute dog, or get more specific.You can also use Google Assistant to play games such as guessing movies based on emojis, finding out sports scores, and more.Think about it as being Google s counter to Facebook s M assistant, which is available to a limited few through Facebook Messenger.And Google isn t done consolidating all the features from other messaging services, including end-to-end encryption, private notifications, and more, likely alleviating security and privacy concerns people have in light of Edward Snowden and the FBI/Apple case.Reports first surfaced at the end of last year with sources telling The Wall Street Journal that Google was building a mobile-messaging service that taps its artificial intelligence know-how and so-called chatbot technology.The move probably should not be surprising, especially as applications like Line, WeChat, Skype, Slack, and Facebook Messenger have gotten into the bot market.Signs of development were furthered during this year s Mobile World Congress, where the company formed a partnership with multiple mobile operators such as Orange, Sprint, Deutsche Telekom, America Movil, Vodafone, and the wireless standards body GSMA to roll out the Rich Communication Services for Android.
Microsoft is selling the feature phone business it acquired from Nokia back in 2013 to a subsidiary of Chinese manufacturer Foxconn for $350 million, it announced today.At the same time former owner Nokia said it has inked a deal to license its brand to HMD Global, a new Finnish company run by ex-Nokia and Microsoft devices staff, to create a new generation of Nokia-branded mobile phones and tablets .Holding onto a diminishing feature phones business clearly did not hold much appeal for Redmond which — despite its talk of continued development of its own smartphone platform — has been focusing its efforts on building up a services offering via apps made for Android and iOS devices.Last month, for example, it brought its Word Flow keyboard app, originally developed, for Windows over to iOS as an app.The company had already been testing a brand licensing strategy in mobile devices, working with Foxconn on an Android based tablet, the N1, for the Asian market back in 2015.Commenting on the impending return of the Nokia brand to the mobile market, Ramzi Haidamus, president of Nokia Technologies, dubbed it an exciting new chapter , adding in a statement: Instead of Nokia returning to manufacturing mobile phones itself, HMD plans to produce mobile phones and tablets that can leverage and grow the value of the Nokia brand in global markets.
