Men det blir både svårt att genomföra, och "helt meningslöst", enligt upphandlaren Svenska Kraftnät.I vintras beslutade regeringen att förlänga effektreserven från 2020 till 2025, eftersom landets effektsituation tros försämras under en övergångsperiod.Nyligen beslutades dessutom att effektreserven ska bestå av förnybart producerad el – inte, som idag, av gamla kol- och oljekondenskraftverk som sätts igång vid behov.Det faller på Svenska Kraftnät att ställa miljökrav vid upphandlingen.Men enligt Svenska Kraftnät blir det svårt att hitta förnybar elproduktion som uppfyller de krav man måste ställa på en effektreservs uthållighet och tillgänglighet.I ett remissvar från i somras, då regeringen först förslog att effektreserven skulle förlängas, skriver generaldirektör Mikael Odenberg att "miljökrav som hindrar upphandling av kondenskraft skulle motverka effektreservens syfte.

Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer faced credible threats in 2015 that caused the company to drastically boost its spending on security for her and her family.The Sunnyvale company spent $544,061 for security for Mayer last year, according to recent company filings, including one Monday.That compares with $26,891 in 2014.Mayer, who s been under fire from shareholders over the direction of one of Silicon Valley s iconic companies, in 2015 faced specific security threats that we believed were credible, the company said in its filings, without specifying the threats.Calling Mayer an embattled CEO might be understating it a bit; analysts, investors and the media have scrutinized her every move since the former Google executive took the helm of Yahoo in 2012 — after other CEOs before her failed to bring back the company s mojo amid the rise of mobile, Google, Facebook and Yahoo s own missteps.The company said in the filing that it provides security services for Mayer and her immediate family she has a husband and three kids in addition to the business-related security services it pays for, and that the reported amount of security expense is especially reasonable in light of the fact that Ms. Mayer does not ask the Company to reimburse her private aircraft costs for business travel.A Yahoo spokeswoman told SiliconBeat the company would have no additional comment.This latest figure comes on the heels of other reports based on recent Yahoo filings, including how much Mayer made last year $36 million, a 15 percent decline from the previous year , and how much she might make if the company is sold and she is fired.Under pressure from activist shareholders who recently grabbed seats on the board, the company is considering bids now, which are reportedly coming in lower than expected.Back to the security costs: The amount Yahoo spent wasn t unusual or outrageous compared with what other tech companies have spent on security for their top executives.For example, Pat May wrote last month about how much Facebook and Twitter shelled out in 2015 for security for Mark Zuckerberg, Sheryl Sandberg and Jack Dorsey: $4.3 million, $1.2 million and $68,500, respectively.Photo: Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer delivers the keynote address Feb. 18, 2016, at the Yahoo Mobile Developer Conference in San Francisco.

For advertisers running text-based mobile ads, character limits will increase from two 35-character lines to one 80-character line; headlines will expand from one with a 25-character limit to two with 30-character limits.Speaking at a press briefing yesterday, Jerry Dischler, vice president of product management for AdWords, said that even with the rise of ecommerce, 90 percent of global sales happen in stores and that Google maps have the opportunity to be the bridge where mobile and local meet.The example below shows new, branded pins within the map and more robust business pages, which — in addition to providing information like location and hours — can show custom, in-store promotions and could also include a link to store inventory levels.This would be helpful in the case of someone seeking a specific tv model from a retailer like Best Buy.Google Maps : promoted pins top and business page bottom Dischler said that the efficacy of mobile ads for local businesses began to be understood two years ago with the introduction of a metric called store visits.Since then, Google advertisers have measured over 1 billion store visits, globally.In fact, Nissan claimed a 25 to 1 return on investment ROI for the mobile ad campaign.Last year, Google s search and advertising tools generated $165 billion for companies in the U.S, as mobile devices become increasingly indispensable to consumers.

Image Source: Rafiq SarlieWhile the bulk of Apple s laptop updates in recent years have been relatively incremental in nature, Tim Cook and co. have plans to really shake things up in 2016.Without question, it will be interesting to see how and where Apple implements Touch ID on the new MacBook Pro, especially in light of rumors that the iPhone 7s may incorporate an edge to edge display with an embedded home button and Touch ID sensor.As far as other notable features are concerned, Apple s 2016 MacBook Pro is slated to feature a thinner and lighter design, hardly a surprise given what Apple managed to do with its MacBook Line.This is particularly noteworthy because not everyone is fond of Apple s new keyboard design.In other words, the revamped MacBook Pro models will likely come in the same 13-inch and 15-inch form factors available today.In turn, the 11-inch MacBook Air will be positioned as an entry-level device with the MacBook and MacBook Pro serving as mid-level and premium notebook options, respectively.

Set in a 90s school, the short video shows kids using the classic flip phone, while a teacher looks on enviously.The description text reads, Flip back to the Razr days to yesteryear and get ready for the future.Is it possible the Razr brand will return, and be stamped on a new flip phone, complete with classic Razr styling and a virtual representation of that unusual laser-etched keypad?That s what we want to believe based on the nostalgic video, but it s pure speculation, as it could be interpreted a number of ways.Flip phones themselves, while still produced, have limited appeal, and it d be a risk — no matter how cool a modern reinterpretation of the Razr flip would be — to introduce a new one.The second, and sadly more likely, interpretation is this is just Lenovo s way of drawing on Motorola s heritage to show how influential it has been in the mobile industry.
