Poliisin esitutkinta Finaviassa johdannaissopimuksia tehneiden henkilöiden osalta päättyi 27.5.2016.Esitutkinnan perusteella on syytä epäillä, että Finavian entinen rahoituspäällikkö ja varatoimitusjohtaja ovat syyllistyneet rikokseen ryhtyessään johdannaissopimuksiin.Asia siirtyy syyteharkintaan.Entisten hallituksen jäsenten osalta asia ei johda syyteharkintaan.Johdannaisasian selvittäminen on ollut hyvin poikkeuksellinen asia valtionyhtiössä.Asianajaja, laamanni Pekka Merilammen tekemän yhtiöoikeudellisen selvityksen mukaan osakkeenomistajalla on oikeus antaa ohjeita yhtiön hallitukselle eikä se merkitse epäsopivaa puuttumista yhtiön operatiivisiin asioihin.

Acting on orders from Iran s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, the country s Supreme Council of Cyberspace has issued strict, new rules instructing foreign messaging companies to transfer all data linked to Iranian citizens into the country.The new guidelines dictate that messaging services have a year to move their data servers within Iran or risk facing censorship, according to the state news agency IRNA.In the absence of the aforementioned platforms, Telegram has managed to successfully accumulate 20 million users in Iran, which has a total population of about 80 million.We can not and will not help them with that, said Durov.Several arrests were made earlier this month in what Tehran s Cybercrime Court described as a sting operation on obscene content.Iranian officials, on the other hand, freely use banned social networks.
Floridalainen panimo toi markkinoille biohajoavan sixpack-pakkauksen.Tölkit palautetaan yleensä kiltisti kierrätykseen, mutta pakkauksen muovinen pidike heitetään surutta roskiin – tai pahimmillaan jopa luotoon tai mereen.Sieltä se voi päätyä merieläinten ruoaksi tai esimerkiksi kuristamaan linnun kaulaa.Suomessa pakkaukset kääritään usein kokonaan muoviin.Sixpack-pakkausten muovirenkaat ovat juuri sitä jätettä, jonka väitetään hajoavan maailman merissä ja kulkeutuvan mereneläinten elimistöihin.Floridalainen Saltwater Brewery on nyt tarttunut tähän ongelmaan kehittämällä vehnästä ja ohrasta valmistetun pidikkeen.
According to a report from Tech Insider, the company has sold off all of its wearable inventory.It s not been confirmed and we ve reached out to Jawbone for comment , but Jawbone has apparently sold off all of its existing Up wearable inventory to a third-party reseller, and is shopping its speaker business around as well.It s not known if the move was also a precursor for new wearables, or if Jawbone is simply exiting the tough wearable hardware business it never quite cracked.The newest Up wearables slipped off easily, and the precursor to it was a weird wrap-around band that put many off.A recent report suggests Jawbone is actively seeking a buyer for that branch of its business.The rub there is that Fortune indicates the speaker sell-off was made so Jawbone can focus on its health and wearables business — which Tech Insider indicates may also be in jeopardy.
If you rent your home temporarily with Airbnb or other home-sharing services, not every type of loss may be covered on your existing homeowner insurance policy.Allstate will soon offer an add-on to your policy that covers home-sharing gaps, according to the Chicago Tribune.The Airbnb policy, for example, adds liability coverage in case a guest gets hurt in your home and decides to sue, but if a guest breaks or steals something, Airbnb s policy doesn t help.If you re considering HomeAdvantage it s worth a few minutes to check with your agent to see if the new program s specific benefits are already included in your current policy.If a temporary renter accidentally set a fire in the kitchen trying to cook dinner, you d still be covered without this endorsement, said Allstate spokesman Justin Herndon.While some home-sharing companies like Airbnb or HomeAway may have coverage options for their hosts, Allstate added in its related statement, Allstate s HostAdvantage targets specific needs of customers who participate in home-sharing and provides a trusted brand that enhances a customer s current homeowner policy.

Yhdysvalloissa jopa suuri internet-operaattori Comcast on ollut sotajalalla runsasta Netflix-katselua vastaan ja maksumieheksi on vaadittu milloin asiakkaita kuin Netflixiäkin.– Nyt kuluttajat käyttävät enemmän rahaa maksulliseen sisältöön kuin ennen.Myös urheilun sisältöoikeudet pilkkoutuvat maa- ja jakelukanavakohtaisesti.Sisältöjen paketointi onkin jatkuva neuvotteluiden aihe mediayhtiöiden kanssa.Suurten kansainvälisten palveluiden sisältöihin operaattori tuskin kuitenkaan pääsee käsiksi.Niinpä yhteissopimukset perinteisten televisioyhtiöiden kanssa olisivat mielekäs tapa hankkia sisältöä, urheilusarja olisi mahdollista hankkia puoliksi.
Noted Apple watcher John Gruber shared on his podcast The Talk Show that his sources which we believe are quite good indicated the next next iPhone would have an all-glass case, edge-to-edge display.And frankly, although we don t doubt that Apple has been working on the 2017 iPhone for quite some time the lead-in time for devices like the iPhone and iPad are often years, not months , it s odd for such concrete details to leak so early.At its annual shareholder meeting, the chairman of longtime iPhone supplier Catcher Technology Allen Horng said, indicated that the 2017 iPhone would indeed have an all-glass display.Catcher has been the chassis maker for iPhone devices for a number of years and the move to a non-aluminum chassis could mean Catcher would lose business.Stay skepticalWe should note that comments from a supplier CEO – even though interesting – don t confirm anything about Apple s future iPhone plans.It will come in rose gold.
And search no further, friends, as we now have a real proof of concept for a truly life-saving device.The XSTAT hemostatic device, which seemed to be the stuff of science fiction when it was first introduced last year, has now successfully been used on a soldier to staunch severe bleeding in an almost immediate capacity.The brainchild of RevMedx, Inc., we first told you about the XSTAT hemostatic device last Christmas — it s designed to stop severe bleeding in a matter of seconds and prevent life-threatening blood loss in areas of the body that can t easily be treated with a tourniquet — such as the chest or armpit.As per reports from the U.S. military, a soldier who suffered a gunshot wound to his thigh spent hours with a medical team in efforts to control residual bleeding from the bone and accessory vessels, all to no avail.Indeed, the military reports, Throughout the course of the roughly 7-hour surgery, multiple attempts at using bone wax and cautery on the bleeding sites were unsuccessful and the patient received multiple units of blood and plasma.The first-in-human experience with XSTAT is the culmination of tremendous effort on the part of both RevMedx and our military collaborators, said Andrew Barofsky, president and CEO of RevMedx.
It's sure to be very expensiveSamsung Galaxy Note 6 release dateAccording to @evleaks the Samsung Galaxy Note 6 will be released during the week of August 15, so with no other release date rumors to go on that's looking the most likely.Given that all the rumors so far are pointing to the same size and resolution it's likely that's what we'll get.Certainly it's going to be at least QHD, given that the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 is, and 5.8 inches would only be marginally bigger than that phone's 5.7-inch screen.While most camera rumors are pointing to a 12MP lens PhotoRumors claims Samsung is working on a new sensor that will be between 18MP and 24MP and have a wide f/1.4 aperture, which should allow it to take in a lot of light.The Gear VR is a nice bit of kit, but it's held back by a lack of visual fidelity.The Note 6 will be a newer handset, so we want newer, better things, like full waterproofing, rather than just water resistance.
Just because that fancy washing box in your kitchen is called a dishwasher doesn t mean that s the only thing it can wash. You can also clean things like gardening tools and plastic toys with it.As consumer advice site Clark Howard points out, a lot of plastic or metal objects that can fit in your dishwasher can be safely washed inside.Things like stove knobs, waste baskets, cosmetics brushes, and heat register covers could all go for a thorough cleaning and a dishwasher is a worthy candidate for the job.You can usually take off the top rack in most dishwashers to give you more space for larger items.Just make sure you don t wash anything made of wood, cast iron, brass, or anything else that s sensitive to intense heat or water.Check out the full list from Clark Howard s site below for more ideas on things you can wash in your dishwasher.
It seems like only yesterday that Hyperloop felt like nothing more than a few concept drawings and a grin on Elon Musk s face.Well the tube-based transportation system has come a long way and to prove just how far here s a sneak peak at what travelling in one of the trains will be like.HTTHyperloop Transportation Technologies one of the companies that has taken on Musk s concept released a short video during a conference call that showed how they would make travelling in a tiny capsule not only bearable, but actually pleasant.The company has partnered with Re Flekt, a firm in Germany, who will be creating the next-generation of screens for the Hyperloop s windows.HTTTo compensate the company has designed a concept which creates a fake window which would show what the passenger would see if they did actually have a window.HTT has got a partnership in place with the Slovakian government and the hope is that they can create the first looped system between Bratislava and Budapest.
India s finance minister has ratified a decision that Apple Inc. must meet local sourcing rules to open its own stores, according to people familiar with the matter, dealing what may be a fatal blow to the iPhone maker s effort to open retail outlets in the country.Minister Arun Jaitley decided to support the decision by India s Foreign Investment Promotion Board that Apple will have to procure 30 percent of components locally if it wants to sell through its own retail stores, said the people, asking not to be identified because the matter is private.The company makes most of its products in China and doesn t currently meet that criteria.Apple Chief Executive Officer Tim Cook went to India last week for the first time as he seeks to capitalize on the market s prospects and revive his company s growth.India has become the world s fastest-growing smartphone market, with a billion devices forecast to be sold over the next five years.Apple has little market share in the country now, as consumers opt for less expensive devices from rivals such as Samsung Electronics Co. and Micromax Informatics Ltd.India seeks to encourage companies to make products in the country as part of its industrial policy, aimed at reaping the benefits that come from manufacturing facilities and jobs.Malik couldn t immediately be reached for comment.In price-conscious India, most phones are bought at small, congested street-corner shops and carriers typically don t subsidize handsets through calling plans.
Gamaya says these alerts and predictions will help farmers lower costs for water and fertilizer while improving their yields.Agricultural surveying has become one of the most widespread use cases for drones in the US, where companies like PrecisionHawk and Airware are also combining drone imaging and analytics for the agricultural sector.The Swiss post office has even experimented with delivering mail by drones.With a more open legal framework for commercial drones, Switzerland's drone startups have an advantage that could help them grow more quickly than US drone startups.Drones turned the corner in 2015 to become a popular consumer device, while a framework for regulation that legitimizes drones in the US began to take shape.The accelerating pace of drone adoption is also pushing governments to create new regulations that balance safety and innovation.Safer technology and better regulation will open up new applications for drones in the commercial sector, including drone delivery programs like Amazon s Prime Air and Google s Project Wing initiatives.Jonathan Camhi, research analyst for BI Intelligence, Business Insider's premium research service, has compiled a detailed drones report that forecasts sales revenues for consumer, enterprise, and military drones.It also projects the growth of drone shipments for consumers and enterprises.The report details several of world s major drone suppliers and examines trends in drone adoption among several leading industries.Finally, it examines the regulatory landscape in several markets and explains how technologies like obstacle avoidance and drone-to-drone communications will impact drone adoption.Here are some of the key takeaways from the report:We project revenues from drones sales to top $12 billion in 2021, up from just over $8 billion last year.Shipments of consumer drones will more than quadruple over the next five years, fueled by increasing price competition and new technologies that make flying drones easier for beginners.Growth in the enterprise sector will outpace the consumer sector in both shipments and revenues as regulations open up new use cases in the US and EU, the two biggest potential markets for enterprise drones.Technologies like geo-fencing and collision avoidance will make flying drones safer and make regulators feel more comfortable with larger numbers of drones taking to the skies.Right now FAA regulations have limited commercial drones to a select few industries and applications like aerial surveying in the agriculture, mining, and oil and gas sectors.The military sector will continue to lead all other sectors in drone spending during our forecast period thanks to the high cost of military drones and the growing number of countries seeking to acquire them.In full, the report:Compares drone adoption across the consumer, enterprise, and government sectors.Breaks down drone regulations across several key markets and explains how they ve impacted adoption.Discusses popular use cases for drones in the enterprise sector, as well as nascent use case that are on the rise.Analyzes how different drone manufacturers are trying to differentiate their offerings with better hardware and software components.Explains how drone manufacturers are quickly enabling autonomous flight in their products that will be a major boon for drone adoption.To get your copy of this invaluable guide, choose one of these options:Subscribe to an ALL-ACCESS Membership with BI Intelligence and gain immediate access to this report AND over 100 other expertly researched deep-dive reports, subscriptions to all of our daily newsletters, and much more.
It makes sense: Apple's mantra is owning the entire user experience, which is why Apple makes both the hardware and software for its phones, tablets, computers, and more.If Apple truly is working on an electric car, the company probably doesn't want to rely solely on existing charging options, instead opting to try and advance the tech and infrastructure to improve the experience.Reuters suggests that that limited number of charging stations and lengthy waits often required "could be an opportunity for Apple" to innovate in the space.Apple has reportedly been hiring engineers from BMW and Google with a focus on charging methods, which previous rumours suggested was more about adding wireless charging to a future iPhone.Apple is reportedly in talks with several charging tech companies to better understand how their methods work, but Reuters says the companies are "treading carefully," and are concerned about sharing too much data with what could be a potential future rival.Earlier this month, Apple invested US$1 Billion in Didi Chuxing, a Chinese ride-hailing app, which could pay off down the line should Apple need to start mass-testing cars or build services around them.
A modular based kit which allows robots to be created out of cardboard, non-plastics and other materials has been developed.The kit, created by Ziro and currently in crowdfunding, is operated by a glove fitted with motion sensors allowing robots to be gesture controlled.Meanwhile, prototype CellRobot is a collection of modular robots "robotic cells" , which when connected together can perform different functions.BBC Click's Lara Lewington finds out more.

Bitcoin s contractual language is quite limited, by design.Consider: heavily funded Bitcoin startup Coinbase will soon support Ethereum trading on its rebranded cryptocurrency exchange.People with projects they d like to build for The DAO can submit ideas in the form of a proposal written in plain English accompanied by smart contract code.But if this sounds to you like a poor fit with existing legal and regulatory structures, and/or a disaster waiting to happen, well, you re certainly not alone:To quote Eris COO and attorney Preston Byrne:the plain-English covenants made on funding proposals, the absence of legal certainty as to what THEDAO actually is and the nebulous and ever-shifting nature of THEDAO s membership, will make it very difficult to properly assign ownership in these projects work product.As Bitshares founder and DAO skeptic Dan Larimer puts it:The DAO has tentatively raised $100 million dollars worth of ETH, but so far the investors have taken no real risk.Let s wait for the results, if any — legal and otherwise — to roll in before declaring the DAO revolution underway.

Colourbox Red Square Alcohol consumption has dropped five years in Russia by almost a third, says the Ministry of Health päideasiantuntija Yevgeny Bryun Moscow Times,. "An adult drink an average of 12.8 liters of pure alcohol each year. Five-six years ago, the official figure was 18 liters per person, "says Bryun. In his view, consumption is a reduction of the work of the economic crisis, päidehuollon and the Board of Directors due to increased alcohol regulation. "Alcohol and substance abuse are indicators that reflect the society as roaring in the background processes. People now have less money and their first reaction is alcohol Saving "Bryun interprets.
NXP FTF: New systems will make vehicles more intelligent and aware of the world around themDriverless cars are a hot topic within the technology industry, as demonstrated by this week s Queen s Speech, but how close are we to actually seeing autonomous vehicles on the roads?At its Future Technology Forum FTF event in Austin this week, NXP demoed demo a smart driving concept, powered by its Vehicle to X technology V2X system, which it hopes will bring self-driving cars closer to reality.NXP FTF: Self-Driving Cars Get 360 Degree Vision / Contactless Payments Can Go Beyond The Home / NXP Vehicle to X V2X Drive onNXP V2X demoAlthough they resemble slightly upgraded golf carts, NXP s vehicles represent an important step forward into getting V2X technology into road vehicles, creating a safer driving experience for drivers, passengers and pedestrians tonight.The system is even able to offer alternatives to the vehicle when problems occur – for example, when only one lane is open, the V2X system controls on-coming vehicles with traffic lights to safely share the single lane.The vehicles on show in Austin this week were able to react to lights changing ahead of the car, and was even able to stop completely when a pedestrian unexpectedly stepped out in to traffic.This should also start appearing soon, as NXP says the first BlueBox-powered vehicles will start to appear later this year, and that four of the world s five largest auto manufacturers are signed up for 2020 launches.
He was seen there with Anant Ambani, son of Reliance Industries chairman Mukesh Ambani, whose Jio 4G service is expected to be a game-changer for mobile internet in India by the end of 2016.Such high-speed networks would "unleash the power of the iPhone", Mr Cook had said after announcing Apple's results for the first quarter of 2016.While global iPhone sales fell for the first time ever, a drop of 16% from the first quarter of 2015, they rose 56% in India in the same quarter.None of the California-based technology giant's seven CEOs ever visited India while in office, though Steve Jobs famously came here as a backpacking hippie looking for "answers" in the mid-1970s.Apple announced that it would invest $1bn in Chinese ride-hailing app Didi Chuxing last week to "better understand the Chinese market", Mr Cook told Reuters.The centre would later move to Apple's own campus in or near the city and expand to 2,500 employees, government sources told The Hindu newspaper.
Web/Chrome/Android/iOS: We ve shown you how to encrypt your email with PGP, but it can be daunting to get started with.Passlok is a webapp, mobile app, and Chrome app that makes the process easy, and there s a Chrome extension that even integrates with Gmail, Outlook, Yahoo, and others.The video above is your classic Alice and Bob want to exchange secret messages scenario, narrated by Passlok creator Francisco Ruiz, Associate Professor at the Illinois Institute of Technology.He walks through using Passlok to create a lock and key for secure messaging, and then sending the lock to others so they can send in secure messages for which only you have the key—it s an apt description of how PGP works, just couched in how Passlok does the job.Passlok itself, available for iOS, Android, as a webapp, and as a Chrome app, works on its own without really installing anything, so you can generate your key and use it to lock and unlock messages freely without saving anything on your computer useful for loaner or work PCs or by installing the app and using it for messages you receive or send on your own devices.Best of all, Passlok is open source, so you can deliver feedback on how the app works directly to the developer, file issues or bugs you run into, or if you re a developer yourself, contribute to the project.
Volkswagenilla on uusia ongelmia USA:ssa.Yhdysvaltain viranomaiset tutkivat, onko Volkswagen-konserni rikkonut toisen yhtiön omistamia patentteja.Patenttiriidan on viritellyt baltimorelainen Paice LLC -yhtiö.Paice väittää, että Volkswagen-konserni opetteli Paicen hybriautojen tekniikan ja lopetti sen jälkeen äkillisesti yhteistyön eikä lisenssoinut Paicen tekniikkaa.Nyt Paice pyrkii estämään Volkswagen-, Audi- ja Porsche-merkkisten hybridiautojen maahantuonnin ja niiden myynnin Yhdysvalloissa.Mahdollinen tuomio olisi Volkswagenille uusi merkittävä takaisku USA:ssa, kun dieselautojen myynti on pysähtynyt ja nyt sama uhka leijuu myös hybridien yllä.
The Android smartphone in your pocket is a powerful tool that, when used correctly, could make your everyday life more organized and less chaotic.Instead of searching for "coffee shops," for example, just say "OK Google, where's the nearest coffee shop."Once it's downloaded, keeping a list of groceries is as easy as saying, "OK Google, add coffee to my shopping list."Google Keep will launch, a dedicated Shopping List will automatically open, and the item will be added alongside a checkbox."OK Google, set an alarm for..."The number of people who use their smartphones as an alarm clock but aren't aware this voice command exists is mind-boggling."OK Google, text/call/message/email...

It s another kick in the delicate bits for Barclays customers, who had to wait nine months for the bank to finally jump on board with Apple Pay.It was the last major UK bank to do so.Barclays will instead focus on its own mobile payment service, Contactless Mobile.It will work in pretty much exactly the same manner as Android Pay, allowing users to pay for goods through their NFC-enabled Android phone, as long as it runs KitKat or above.Read More: Meet Contactless Mobile, Barclays' Android Pay RivalAn exact launch date for Barclays' own payment service has not yet been revealed, but it should arrive next month.Not that we're saying the bank has a bit of a rep or anything, but the emphasis is very much on 'should'.
Teollisuustaiteen liitto Ornamo myönsi palvelumuotoilija Mikko Koivistolle tänään maanantaina muotoilualan tunnustuksen, Ornamo-palkinnon.Hellonin johtavana palvelumuotoilijana ja asiakaskokemusjohtajana työskentelevää Koivistoa pidetään suomalaisen palvelumuotoilualan pioneerina, joka on vaikuttanut alan kasvuun Suomessa."Asiakasyritykset haluavat itselleen yhä enemmän palvelumuotoilun osaamista, ja palvelumuotoilutoimistot tarjoavat organisaation kehittämiseen liittyviä palveluita.Projektit ovat entistä strategisempia, teemme palveluista strategioita – emme ole yksittäisen palvelun kehittämisessä kiinni vaan viilaamme koko palveluliiketoimintaa.Kun ensimmäiset palvelumuotoiluyritykset aloittivat toimintansa Suomessa 2000-luvun alussa, ne keskittyivät pääosin palveluihin ja prosesseihin eli siihen, kuinka niitä palveluita käytettiin.Myöhemmin palvelumuotoilu laajeni tuotteiden innovointiin ja arvolupauksiin.
