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.

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.
At the Bing News PubHub, publishers can submit their news sites to Bing for consideration of inclusion in Bing News, which is syndicated in front of Windows 10 users through Cortana and in front of Outlook users through Outlook News Connector, in the Bing mobile apps on iOS and Android and other places.Bing says they will judge your news site based on the following criteria:Newsworthiness: Report on timely events and topics that are interesting to users.Similarly, content that consists strictly of information without including original reporting or analysis, such as stock data and weather forecasts, is not considered newsworthy.Originality: Provide unique facts or points of view.Faced with numerous sources frequently reporting similar or identical content, originality or uniqueness becomes a critical way to determine the value to a user of an individual story.Readability: Create content with correct grammar and spelling, and keep site design easy for users to navigate.

But beware: If you're the type of person who likes a challenge and enjoys tinkering with computers, it can get addictive fast.It's done to get more performance for heavy-duty applications like gaming and video processing, and there's even a competitive side to it, with international rankings and competitions.At 43x I managed 2,608, and at 44x it was at 2,651 -- a 24 percent increase from the starting point.Something wasn't performing well, so I rolled back to 44x and set my sights on other adjustments.The blue screens were becoming more frequent and the adjustments I was making were becoming finer and more exotic.After about 30 minutes of trial and error, I decided to call an end to my overclocking career -- at least for now.
