Microsoft has surprisingly revealed the forthcoming Xbox One S console will be capable of upscaling HD video games to 4K resolution.Initially, the firm had revealed the slimmer device would play 4K video via a n Ultra HD Blu-ray player, but had not mentioned the potential for gaming.The bombshell was dropped by Jeff Henshaw, Group Program Manager at Xbox at an E3 session via TechRadar .See also: Xbox One S vs Xbox One: What's the differenceAlthough it won t be quite as good as native 4K, it will mean those with Ultra HD displays will get a taste of gaming at the higher resolution before the holiday 2017 launch of the Xbox One Scorpio.Since the initial reveal on Monday, plenty more news has emerged to suggest the 'S' console will be a considerable upgrade on the original.As well as a 40 per cent slimmer body, the 4K Blu-ray player and 2TB hard drive, we ve since learned the console will contain additional processing power.
The arrest was made as part of the investigation into the leak, which saw 11.5 million documents from the law firm leaked to the German newspaper Süddeutsche Zeitung.The documents detailed thousands of offshore companies set up by Mossak Fonseca on behalf of rich clients, sometimes for the purpose of tax avoidance.The identity of the worker has not been released, and the Süddeutsche Zeitung reporter who led a year-long investigation into the documents said he did not believe the arrested worker was his source.According to our information the mossackfonseca IT person arrested in Geneva is not panamapapers" source "John Doe" @ICIJorg @f obermaier— Bastian Obermayer @b obermayer June 15, 2016Still, a lawyer for Mossak Fonseca told Swiss newspaper Le Temps that the millions of documents were accessed and downloaded via the arrested worker's computer.The newspaper quoted a lawyer for the arrested worker denying all charges.The leak caused embarrassment for many, including politicians who had used the law firm to establish overseas companies to hold assets.
She conceded Silicon Valley will continue its reign for years to come, though Israel could give it some competition.Arieli has faith in Israel because the government fosters young people's "soft skills," such as creativity and out-of-the-box thinking, from a young age.Since these high schoolers have accumulated little work experience by then, the military looks for soft skills and potential, according to Arieli.Once enlisted, "they're exposed to the biggest technological challenges and are empowered to actually solve them with very lean resources," Arieli says."The result of all that together is disruptive technology led and developed by young people."For example, the ultra-secretive Unit 8200 of the Israeli Defense Force produces an uncommonly large number of tech entrepreneurs.As a lieutenant in the elite intelligence unit, she led a team working with technology and also oversaw faculty at the intelligence office's training school.The company where she currently works, Start-Up Nation Central, is a nonprofit organization that connects international business and government leaders with Israeli innovators.Arieli says another important ingredient for the next Silicon Valley's success will be access to capital.More from Tech Insider:The new 'Zelda' didn't make the one major change it probably should have madeHere's what it's really like to have obsessive-compulsive disorderNo, you won't have to buy a new Xbox every year MSFT Apple is changing how read receipts work in the new Messages appThe new 'Legend of Zelda' gets rid of the worst thing about the seriesNOW WATCH: An Israeli startup invented a compost bin that converts kitchen waste to cooking fuelLoading video...
And it could shed light on one of most poorly-understood properties of life on Earth.Image: B. Saxton/NRAO/AUI/NSFWhile the biological advantages of homochirality are obvious, what s less clear is how this unique property of life emerged and why certain molecules exist in the left- or right-handed version.Given that the building blocks of life—simple chains of carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen—probably came from outer space, studying patterns of chirality beyond Earth offers a tool for peering into our distant past.They ve focused their research on Sagittarius B2, a cloud of interstellar dust that weighs as much as 250,000 suns and is situated some 28,000 light years away toward the center of our galaxy.If you add up all of the propylene oxide we found, it weighs about four fifths of an Earth, Carroll said, adding that while this sounds like a lot, it pales in comparison to the size of the SagB2 cloud, and is just at the limit of our detection threshold.Perhaps left-handed proteins and right-handed genetic code are fundamental traits of life everywhere.
Värdet av bitcoin har ökat mer än 50 procent i värde på en månad.Men kryptovalutan har som mest varit uppe i 1 216 dollar, skriver CNBC.Den senaste tidens prisökning kommer i ett läge innan utgivningstakten av nya Bitcoins halveras, skriver Business Insider.Mängden ny valuta är programmerad till att minska till noll med tiden och en absolut gräns på max 21 miljoner enheter av bitcoins har införts.Att utgivningstakten minskar drabbar speciellt bitcoinbrytare, som KNC Miner som gick in konkurs för drygt två veckor sedan.Läs även: KNC Miner-grundaren: Kina har fördelar som vi inte känner till Med minskad tillväxttakt har priset stigit och handeln i bitcoins har ökat, något som bekräftas av Booby Lee som är vd på Kinabaserade BTCC som är en av de största handelsplatserna i världen för kryptovalutan.

Det är en tuff utmaning, säger Stefan Catsicas, Nestlés högsta chef för forskning och utveckling.Vi människor har av naturliga skäl ett sug efter vissa ämnen, så när fettet blev tabu började folk äta socker istället.Nestlé är mest känt för kaffe, katt- och hundmat, mjölkersättning, flingor, glass och choklad – produkter som de flesta kanske inte förknippar med hälsosam föda.Men enligt Stefan Catsicas vill man se sig som ett näringsföretag snarare än ett livsmedelsföretag.– Vi går mer och mer mot en framtid där människorna vill ha så nyttig mat som möjligt.Han tror att nyckeln till att få folk att äta riktigare är utbildning, kunskap.

For instant, here s a search Apple demonstrated today, speaking search the web for pictures of falconry to Siri, as shown below in a screen shot from the excellent live blog The Verge did of the WWDC keynote:Notice how pictures from web image search results are shown.Now, compare that to what happens doing the same exact search on the Mac now:No results at all.Occasionally, Spotlight Suggestions will appear that may route you to other sources like Wikipedia.It s unclear if Spotlight search — which looks to remain an option alongside Siri — will allow you to also search beyond your Mac.On iOS, it does, and it would make sense for that to finally follow on the Mac.Google still remains the default for Safari.
Sverige tillhör de länder i världen som snabbast har tagit till sig Microsofts Windows 10.Här kör nu mer än en tredjedel av alla skrivbordsdatorer Windows 10, enligt statistik från Statcounter.Det innebär att Windows 10 är det mest använda operativsystemet.Så är det också i större delen av Europa enligt Statcounter, men Windows 10 leder även i Danmark, Litauen, Island, Nederländerna, Belgien, Storbritannien, Irland och i Portugal.Sett till hela det senaste året är Windows 7 störst i Sverige, med drygt 40 procent av skrivbordsdatorerna.Enligt Microsoft är Windows 10 Microsofts snabbast växande operativsystem någonsin.
Credit: Rob SchultzThe upcoming Windows 10 Anniversary update—also known by its codename, Redstone—will have lots of new features for PC users.But Windows 10 Mobile users will have some new goodies, too—among them being an updated Microsoft Wallet app and NFC tap-to-pay support.Windows Central got a chance to try an internal development build of the new Wallet 2.0 app, and says the new version has a section for loyalty and membership cards, and another section for credit and debit cards.He also notes that the new Wallet 2.0 app is compatible with loyalty cards from a number of popular merchants, such as Petco, JC Penney, Rite Aid, and more.The US-focused store listings for the loyalty cards implies this as a US feature and once we finally enabled it on a localized UK phone, there were no banking or credit card options, Rubino notes in the report.If you have a phone running Windows 10 Mobile, you won t have to wait much longer for Microsoft Wallet 2.0 and NFC tap-to-pay: The Windows 10 anniversary update will arrive sometime this summer.
One stops -- not on a dime, it turns out, but rather over a QR code stuck to the floor -- and allows the other to proceed, carrying inventory to a human worker who will pluck out an item, scan it and send it off for packing and shipping.In this building the size of 28 football fields, containing four miles of conveyor belts and 15 million items awaiting customer orders from Northern California and beyond, the two limbless goods-moving machines are part of Amazon's 30,000-strong robot army.Gliding in straight lines on a grid, separated from workers by chain-link fencing with signs warning people to keep out, the machines can lift and carry up to 750 pounds of retail products.It has leased a fleet of 20 jumbo jets to further speed deliveries as an estimated 54 million Americans have flocked to its two-day-delivery Prime service.The company says its superhuman robots have created far more jobs than they've taken, but experts say that employment trend will reverse as machines grow increasingly sophisticated and climb ever higher on the job-skills ladder, bumping Homo sapiens to the side.The company in May won a patent for robot-aided stowing that says, "some or all of the activities described as being performed by a human operator may be performed by automated mechanisms."Amazon ORder-fulfillment CENTERSU.S. fulfillment centers: 50Roboticized fulfillment centers in U.S.: 15Roboticized fulfillment centers in California: 3Human workers: 90,000Robots: 30,000Fulfillment centers, global: 123Amazon associate Michael Keele, of Tracy, scans items before stowing them in a portable storage unit to be carried away by an Amazon Robotics robot at the Amazon fulfillment center in Tracy, Calif., on Tuesday, April 12, 2016.
Both realities have presented a problem for Axl Rose, the once-wiry lead singer of Guns N' Roses who traded Appetite for Destruction for Appetite for Just About Anything.But Axl Rose is taking it a step further, opening his equally fat wallet to hire attorneys to demand that Google take down pictures of him that he feels leave him in an unflattering light, claiming they violate his intellectual property.Since we live in a global world, American companies like Google and Bing might soon have to comply domestically, even though a right to be forgotten runs afoul of publishers' First Amendment protections.I may identify as buff, but my ample touchas still qualifies for both its own zip code and a congressman.I can't hear Sweet Child o' Mine without thinking about my 1985 gun-metal gray Chevy Monte Carlo, driving down Broadway in Bayonne, N.J. Those memories, the sounds coming from Slash's guitar, evoke something raw, passionate and emotional in me, because of the authenticity and innovation of the music I was hearing.If anything, his crusade to stamp out his fat period threatens to take away something from the Axl Rose mystique, which more than anything is his unique selling proposition.
LG s newest G5 smartphone has a removable bottom so you can stick in a camera grip or bigger battery.With ditching the X moniker and going with the Z, Motorola s new name comes with new ideas.During the demo with Ashton Kutcher, yeah that dude is still hanging around, the modules simply snap onto the the connector pins and don t restart the phone, like the LG G5.Other than this radical hardware reinvention, the Moto Z also finally comes with a fingerprint sensor, a hardware feature that Motorola s stubbornly left off its phones for years.The push for mobile VR and modular phones are attempts to keep up with the crushing pace of phone innovation, yet neither have definitively proved that they are innovations that people even want.The Moto Z Droid and Moto Z Force Droid will be available this summer in the US only through Verizon, which seriously sucks.
Heartwarming pictures show an injured and sick owl hugging the man who helped nurse her back to health.Wild at Heart Rescue Founder and Director Missy Dubuisson told FoxNews.com that the great horned owl, dubbed GiGi, was brought to the center in late May.The bird was suffering from a severe concussion, a crop infection, possibly caused by eating rotten food, as well as a respiratory infection.The wonderful photos show Gigi hugging Douglas Pojecky, a U.S. Navy veteran who is the center s main caregiver for birds of prey.In one photo the caregiver is seen calming the bird.The owl is great, she s back in the woods, Dubuisson added.
The Danish company claims the headset is particularly adept at making calls, and says its battery can last up to 17 hours.Jabra has a decent track record with these things, so it should be fine.What s more interesting is its design.The Halo Smart is yet another take on the neckband-style headsets that have steadily grown in popularity over the past couple of years.As with LG s Tone series, its earbuds protrude from a band that you wear around your neck.If you ve never encountered one of these before, you might be asking yourself why anyone would want to wear a human collar.An electronic necklace isn t terribly conducive to working out, either.Still, they re not going away — Samsung, Bose, Sol Republic, and others have all introduced their own neckbuds in recent months.

COMING SOON: Apple looks set to unveil its new iOS 10 operating system on MondayThere's another mega week ahead for lovers of all things Apple.The US tech giant's yearly WWDC developers conference will open its doors on Monday June 13th and expect some major news to be announced.Likely to be called iOS 10, rumours are suggesting it will bring a host of improvements to your smartphone.Siri is thought to be getting some extra and more useful features including being able to tell a caller why you are unable to pick-up the phone, and transcribe any voicemail messages so you can read them on-the-go or in a loud venue.Apple's payment service may soon allow iOS users send money to mates with a tap or a transaction through iMessageCOMING SOON: Apple's iOS 10 looks set to be unveiled on Monday 13th June TOP MAN: Apple boss Tim Cook is expected to reveal some big news at WWDC this yeariOS 10 should also bring improvements to the in-built Photos app.The refreshed Apple Music and Music app will ditch the bright colours and translucency of the current iteration in favour of a stripped-back, simpler black-and-white design.
Limited functions, inaccurate data, and lack of a cellular connection are among their complaints.The findings are an indicator to makers of smartwatches and other wearables of what they need to focus on in coming generations of devices, Ericsson said.Consumer objections to wearables are very legitimate, I can say, said Jasmeet Sethi, senior researcher at Ericsson ConsumerLab and author of the wearable report on the survey.They see a lack of functionality, lack of connectivity, inaccurate data and a walled garden approach by vendors, but all four need to come together to ensure that wearables are a success.While some wearable apps work across both the Android and Apple Watch platforms, Sethi said vendors need to work harder to create cross-platform functionality.Another novel item that generated high interest by participants was a smart water purifier that is comprised of a bracelet with a UV purifying light bulb that can be detached and placed in water to kill contaminants.
