The reputation you have, the experiences you create, the ways you differentiate -- everything rolls up to brand.Can you compete with other companies that market and sell the same products in the same category to the same group of people?It should include information that is core to the ongoing development and preservation of your brand, such as your brand promise, mission statement, core values, key messaging and positioning statements about your products, customer personas, visual style guide and communication guidelines for each channel and medium you use when interacting with customers.A brand book can be as simple as a Google document shared with all members of your team, or it could be a professionally designed and printed resource that you give to each employee or agency who works for you.What matters at the end of the day is not the look of the resource, but the value and usefulness of the content inside.Is it worth all the hype (and the investment)?

Just as former Microsoft exec and former Nokia CEO Stephen Elop feared, the mobile market has become a two-horse race between Android and iOS.More than that, however, Android has overtaken Windows as the most Internet-connected platform and iOS, particular iPadOS, threatens to displace Windows on some fronts.In some alternate reality, however, Windows Mobile could have been the dominant mobile platform, a possibility that, at least according to Microsoft founder and ex-CEO Bill Gates, was destroyed by the US government’s antitrust lawsuit in 1998.It was a distraction, Gates told the New York Times.The case took much of Microsoft’s resources and attention that could have been applied instead to its mobile operating system.Had that case not happened, Microsoft would be a very different company and Gates would have been CEO for a bit longer as well.

One of the brands that we're always excited about come EICMA season is Aprilia, and this year, there's a lot of reasons to be excited, and most of them have 660 in their name.What we're talking about is the new RS 660 and the Tuono 660 concept, oh, and did we mention that Aprilia is also revamping its RSV4 superbike to keep pace with the new V4s from Ducati?So, to start, let's talk about the 660 bikes.With a power output of just 100 horsepower (still a lot, mind you), it's way less to try and manage than the full-fat V4 version, which for 2020 will now make 201 horsepower.The RS 660 drops a bunch of weight over its bigger, racier progenitor.Specifically, Aprilia designed the RS 660 with what it's calling a "double fairing" which will help funnel air through the bike as cleanly as possible.

TBao may not be the most familiar brand name to many people, but this Chinese vendor is trying pretty hard to differentiate itself from the army of smaller identikit laptop vendors that operate in South East Asia.One of it latest launches is the TBOOK5 Pro laptop, and it looks to stand out from the crowd with one very unique selling point.The keys on its keyboard have rounded edges that give it a rather peculiar look.The marketing department at TBao calls it "retro punk", claiming that it has a "realistic knocking and light rebound, so that it has a retro charm in both appearance and trial feel".At $489.00 at the time of writing, the TBOOK5 Pro is quite expensive for its components, sporting an Intel Celeron 3867U paired with a dedicated Geforce 940MX GPU with 2GB dedicated memory, a full HD display, a full metal body, a backlit keboard and a fingerprint reader.This makes it as expensive as outrageously stunning Inspiron 14 5000 (5481) from Dell, which also has 8GB of RAM and 256GB SSD with Windows 10 and a 14-inch display.

Engineers from the Military Studies Center at Far Eastern Federal University (MSC FEFU) developed a brand-new concrete with improved impact endurance and up to 40% made of waste: rice husk cinder, limestone crushing waste, and siliceous sand.The new concrete is 6-9 times more crackle resistant than the types produced under GOST standards.The endurance of the new type of concrete grows with the increase of impact affecting it.A concrete slab exhibits the so-called 'rubber effect': it contracts and becomes springy, but doesn't crack.According to the engineers, the construction absorbs impact due to its dynamic viscosity.This effect is caused by the reinforcement of concrete, in this case adding metal or touchstone fibers to it.

ESPN+ subscribers have noticed a number of pre-roll ads running before videos in recent weeks, despite the fact that a major selling point of the app is that customers wouldn’t have to deal with constant annoying commercials.Disney, which owns ESPN, started running pre-roll ads on October 1st, which also marks the start of the company’s 2020 fiscal year, according to a person with knowledge of the matter.The pre-rolls were included to increase ad revenue, the person added.A Disney representative denied that financial concerns motivated the additional advertisements, insisting to The Verge that it was strictly a business decision.“ESPN+ has always had advertising, including in live sports streams,” the Disney representative said in a statement.“We recently adapted the advertising experience and ESPN+ subscribers now also see targeted pre-roll ads in video clips across the ESPN digital environment.”

RCS is championed by the GSMA, which has been banging on about it for over a decade.It’s positioned as the heir apparent to SMS, offering all sorts of ‘rich communications’ such as images, group chat.That all would have been pretty handy when it was first proposed, but since then there have been countless OTT messaging apps launched, such as WhatsApp, which seem to provide at least everything RCS does.The US operators clearly disagree, however, hence this announcement.But what is less obvious is the incentives smartphone users would have to switch to it.Presumably most would reflect on their current messaging app portfolio and conclude that if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.

And with each new trailer, we see that Strandingwill include the same crazy bullshit we’ve come to expect from a Kojima production: a script heavy with exposition, on-the-nose names and titles ripped straight from a twelve-year-old’s first sci-fi story, and a heavy dose of the supernatural.Included in the release date reveal trailer is a scene in which a presumed antagonist licks Léa Seydoux’s face.While completing the game in five hours sees Samus remove her helmet and thus reveals her identity, this powerful moment is undermined by anyone who finishes in three hours which sees her don a skin-tight leotard like something out of GLOW.Even Resident Evil 2, which has made a point of being more grounded in reality, puts Leon in a wealth of ordinary clothing while Claire’s bonus costumes focus on a more bedraggled and revealing theme.This concept of using women as a reward is not confined to video games.Masamitsu Hidaka, show-runner of the Pokémon anime, had this to say on the high turnaround of female characters in the series: “It gives boys some new eye-candy every once in a while… girls are more customizable and you can change their outfits, like when they are in bathing suits.”

Det svenska bolaget Uniti, som sedan 2015 haft en ambition om att börja tillverka små elbilar, tog för ungefär ett år sedan ett beslut om att flytta hela sin tillverkning till Storbritannien.Frågan har sedan dess varit när produktionen inleds, och hur stora volymerna ska bli.Bolaget har tidigare skruvat ned ett mål om att framställa 5 000-10 000 elbilar vid slutet av 2019.Nu meddelar Uniti att de första leveranserna till kunder i Sverige och Storbritannien kommer att ske i mitten av 2020.Priset för modellen Uniti One, som har plats för tre personer, kommer att vara 168 000 kronor efter miljöbonus.Om kunden vill ha en Uniti-bil med ett bättre batteri, som har en räckvidd på 30 mil i stället för 15 mil, kostar fordonet 299 000 kronor.

Got too many Lego pieces scattered throughout the house?“This is something we’ve had on our mind for a while now,” says Tim Brooks, vice president of environmental responsibility at Lego.The mass redistribution is being facilitated by Give Back Box, a logistics company started in an effort to reuse discarded shipping materials.The biggest challenge in the process, says Give Back Box founder Monika Wiela, will be sorting and cleaning all the pieces.Her company will collect the bricks at its facility in Alabama, where workers will then separate out the broken bricks and machine wash the rest.“When you look at the world, you don't see lack of resources, there's only a problem with moving the resources,” says Wiela.

AMD has big plans for its next microcode (ie firmware) update for Ryzen 3000 processors, with the incoming AGESA 1.0.0.4 reportedly making over 100 improvements to help you get more from these 3rd Generation CPUs.This revelation came from MSI (as spotted by German site Planet3DNow.de) in the motherboard maker’s ‘insider’ show.According to the info provided, AMD will begin to roll out this fresh BIOS update as soon as next week to motherboard manufacturers.They will then fine-tune it for their respective products, with MSI expecting the update to become available to users in November (although we may see beta versions pushed out before then, so perhaps later this month, even).Exactly what the 100+ enhancements and tweaks will consist of, MSI didn’t reveal, but as Planet3DNow pointed out, AMD has previously mentioned work on an overclocking menu.If you’ve been keeping track of news in the Ryzen world lately, you’ll doubtless realize that this next firmware version follows on from AMD’s BIOS fix for issues Ryzen 3000 CPUs were having with not reaching promised boost speeds.

Stealth-tekniken minskar effektivt stridsflygplanens radarprofil, och länge smög USA ensamma i luften med modeller som attackflygplanet F-117 Nighthawk och bombaren B-2 Spirit.Men nu har de andra stormakterna knappat in på försprånget.Och i dag har även de små jaktplanen begåvats med stealth-egenskaper – från USA:s F-35 till Kinas J-20.Men samtidigt är det givetvis många ingenjörer som ägnar dagarna åt att försöka peta hål på smygtekniken.Nu går den tyska radartillverkaren Hensoldt ut med att man har kunnat följa två exemplar av Lockheed Martins stealth-jaktplan F-35 i 150 kilometer.Företaget ska ha lyckats med detta under förra årets upplaga av Berlin Air Show.
