This is a ruggedized and waterproof Bluetooth portable speaker with an IP67 rating, meaning it s impervious to dust penetration and that no harmful amount of water will enter its enclosure when submersed in water down to one meter.There s mild thump, but it s not over-emphasized and it leans heavily toward the low mid-range.That may make the kids sad; then again, perhaps they ll appreciate being able to understand the lyrics.Indeed, one of the tunes I test with is Renegades, by the X Ambassadors you ve probably heard it in a Jeep commercial .Said cap is snug, and not particularly easy to pry open, but you ve been warned.Cool if you re not peace-seeking hikers looking to commune with nature s symphony.

Kotaku is reporting a smaller Xbox One is coming this year ,and The Sams Report Petri executive editor Brad Sams first broke news about the Xbox Elite controller is talking about two Xbox streaming devices.Both reports, coincidentally published on the same day, also discuss a more powerful Xbox console slated for 2017.Let s first focus on what s coming sooner rather then later.The streaming stick will let you access Xbox digital content, including Xbox One games from your console so you can play them on a second TV using Xbox One controllers.Full-blown Xbox One games wouldn t be available without streaming from an Xbox One console, but casual games that Windows 10 users can play would be.While all of the above is likely to be shown off at E3, we doubt Microsoft will unveil its more powerful Xbox next month.The big picture here is that Microsoft wants to bring Xbox and Windows closer together, as part of a project codenamed Helix.Games would have to be forwards and backwards compatible on both Xboxes and Windows 10 computers.Keep in mind that none of this is final until it is announced.

Netflix is in the midst of a big transition.While Netflix gained much of its past dominance in the streaming space by letting you binge-watch reruns of old shows and movies, the company has increasingly pivoted toward its own original content.That isn t new for Netflix, which has constantly reinvented itself since it debuted its DVD-by-mail service in 1998.Netflix executives have said, on many occasions, that they believe original and exclusive TV shows and movies are the best way to provide value to its subscribers moving forward.In a recent survey, 49% of Netflix subscribers thought Netflix s content had improved over the last year further breaking that number down, 30% said it had greatly or moderately improved with the remainder answering "slightly improved" .The rest of the surveyed subscribers thought the quality of Netflix's content had "stayed the same.RBC says it expects original content to be more impactful moving forward.That s what Netflix is betting on.Last fall, Netflix CFO David Wells said the company had found originals to be much more impactful relative to licensing, and the company has jumped headfirst into this area.NOW WATCH: The defense attorneys from 'Making a Murderer' respond to criticism from Steven Avery s new lawyerLoading video...

I have never worked with the same kind of budget that they had, but it is quite simple to draw conclusions and ideas from the tactics and strategy they employed.in order to get people to share whilst at a music festival.One of our biggest takeaways was that people were eager to share during the event, when they did not experience something at the same time - ie.Might not be that odd, but considering most brands want that epic bombastic event activation, yet measure on shares, mentions etc.It is an important learning, as we have to both focus on experience and idle time when marketing at events.In direct contrast to that conclusion, we found that the more produced content we shared shortly after the event, the better the engagement rate, whilst the production height time, finish, budget didn't matter as much as time passed.

Your content should be so brilliant that your audience can t help but share it, repin it, and bookmark it.This goes without saying: you have to respond to questions.Identify areas where your potential customers lack the necessary knowledge to make a good decision.I personally love Google Keyword Planner as it provides tons of information on the volume of searches over time, different variations and relevant search queries, as well as how competitive specific keywords are.Create a short questionnaire or a poll about what struggles they experience and what types of information they d find the most valuable.Spend some time getting to know your audience and show your consideration of their needs, and you will reap amazing results that will translate into sales.

You re probably used to getting turn-by-turn directions to your next destination with Google Maps, but there s also a pretty-well-hidden Driving Mode just for... well, driving.It alerts you to traffic problems, directs you to nearby petrol pumps and shops, and is useful for those times when you already know your route or don t even have a destination in mind.Google launched Driving Mode earlier this year for Android but it s kind of tricky to find: in Google Maps, choose Start driving from the app menu or make use of the 1x1 widget under Maps .If it s close to commute time, you ll see ETAs to your home or work if you ve added them to Maps .Again, these results stay on screen until you dismiss them, so if you re circling around looking for a place to eat then the results keep updating as you move.For those times when you know where you re going but still want traffic updates, Driving Mode is helpful; it s also useful when you re touring around an area without any particular destination in mind.

The Google Cultural Institute has been hard at work digitally preserving works of art from collections around the world in gigapixel images.The Art Camera uses laser and sonar to measure the distance of the artwork, ensuring perfect focus, then robotically steers the camera exactly where it needs to go to capture every detail in ultra close-up.Being able to zoom in to the component parts of a painting reveals some of the hidden secrets of its creation, and inspires a deeper emotional connection to the work.The Art Camera is designed to work wherever a piece of art is displayed, without changing the lighting or needing to move a piece.One of the Google Cultural Institute s goals with the Art Camera is to bring the museum experience to people everywhere, so anyone has the opportunity to view classic masterpieces with the type of detail not otherwise possible without seeing it in person.The collection includes work from Cézanne, Rembrandt, Van Gogh, Monet, and many others, captured in stunning detail.

Like some immutable law of entropy, internet freedom is a one-way process.The insightful Emily Bell, director of the Tow Center for Digital Journalism at Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism, delivered an apocalyptic — and headline friendly — lecture earlier this year in Cambridge, entitled "The End of the News as We Know It: How Facebook Swallowed Journalism."Is, like Bell founder Theodore Vail, Mark Zuckerberg fighting to control the distribution of news?Facebook is the de facto global social network.Four out of every five smartphones around the world run a version of Google's Android operating system.News gatekeepers have always existed, once it was media barons, now it is lines of code.

Yhdysvaltain tulevan presidentin Donald Trumpin hallinnon mahdollinen tuki Euroopan unionin hajoamiselle olisi "sulaa hulluutta", sanoi virassaan lopettava Yhdysvaltojen EU-lähettiläs Anthony Gardner toimittajille Brysselissä.Gardnerin sanomisista uutisoi esimerkiksi Time.Hän muun muassa kertoi, että Trumpin hallinto on jo tiedustellut, mitkä valtiot tulevat seuraamaan Britannian esimerkkiä ja jättämään Euroopan unionin."On sulaa hulluutta ajatella, että tukemalla Euroopan sirpaloitumista ajaisimme etujamme.Se on järjetöntä", Gardner kritisoi.Brexit-kampanjan keulahahmo Nigel Farage oli ensimmäinen brittipoliitikko, joka tapasi Trumpin hänen vaalivoittonsa jälkeen marraskuussa.
