Acer Aspire 3951 Ultrabook is a 133inch MacBook Air alternative

first_imgAt the moment, Apple has cornered the market for ultra-thin and portable laptops everyone desires. There are Windows laptops that offer similar levels of portability, but since the Dell Adamo line disappeared there’s not been much in the way of competition for the sleek lines of a MacBook, aside from the thicker ThinkPad X1.Intel aimed to change this by introducing a new category of portable computing known as Ultrabooks earlier this year. To be classed as an Ultrabook manufacturers had to produce a thin, light and elegant design that’s no more than 20mm thick, has a second-gen Sandy Bridge processor, and cost less than $1000.Acer looks to be one of the first to produce a laptop worthy of the Ultrabook name. It’s called the Aspire 3951 and pictures of the new laptop have appeared via the Vietnamese blog Sohoa.The design does look very “Apple”, which is no bad thing as it will likely cater to that category of Windows user who wants a laptop that looks as good as a MacBook, but ships with a Microsoft OS.The finer details of the 3951 have yet to be officially revealed. What we do know is it is only 13mm thick, sports a 13.3-inch display, and has the prerequisite second-generation Sandy Bridge processor at its heart. There’s also thought to be several hard drive choices including a 160GB SSD option.This super-slim Ultrabook is housed in an aluminium case and weighs a mere 1.4Kg. Prices start at $770 going up to $960 making it significantly cheaper than both the 13-inch and 11-inch MacBook Airs.Although there’s no guarantee this laptop will ever see a release, we hope it does as this is what manufacturers need to do to really start competing with Apple in the premium laptop category: produce good looking, highly portable laptops at a reasonable price point.Read more at Sohoa, via Engadgetlast_img read more

Subs deal may be saved shipyard on the rocks

first_imgGreece and Germany appear set to make some headway in solving a long-running dispute over the delivery of four submarines, but the fate of a shipyard west of Athens remains in doubt following a high-level meeting last week.Defense Minister Evangelos Venizelos held talks with ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems CEO Hans Christoph Atzpodien in a bid to resolve the issue of the outstanding submarine order, which has weighed heavily on Greek-German relations in recent years.Greece has identified technical problems with the Type 214 diesel-electric submarine, manufactured by ThyssenKrupp, as being the reason for not accepting delivery of the four vessels that it ordered between 2001 and 2005. The first submarine, dubbed Papanikolis, has been docked in Kiel since 2006.There was an agreement to build three of the submarines and refurbish another three at Hellenic Shipyards, west of Athens.Sources said that ThyssenKrupp appears determined to quit its involvement in the shipyards as early as next month, despite government concerns about the job losses that this might cause. There were, however, discussions between the two sides about how some private involvement in the shipyards could continue.Venizelos and Atzpodien are also said to have reached an agreement on the first submarine. An unidentified third country is reported to be interested in buying the vessel and the two sides have agreed that selling it would be the best way out of the current impasse.The two men reportedly agreed that if the technical problems are ironed out, Greece will accept delivery of the remaining three submarines.

Stournaras hopeful of agreement with troika

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram In a message likely aimed at both a domestic audience and Greece’s lenders, Finance Minister Yannis Stournaras has called for “common sense” to prevail in the government’s latest talks with the troika after it was confirmed that officials from the eurozone and the International Monetary Fund would resume their program review in Athens on Monday.“There are solutions for all the matters, as long as there is realism, flexibility and common sense on all sides,” Stournaras told Kathimerini ahead of the troika’s return.“We all have to be calm,” he said. “Our lenders have to pay close attention to the fact that the Greek economy is turning around, which the markets have already recognized.”Apart from checking on when Greece will fulfill its three remaining “prior actions” to unlock another 1 billion euros in bailout funding, the troika representatives will also hold further talks with the Greek government about next year’s fiscal gap.Greece says it will be no bigger than 500 million euros but the troika sees the figure being between 2 and 2.5 billion euros. Sources said the three key arguments that Greece will use to defend its position are that tax revenues have beaten their targets this year, that the economy will contract by less than had been forecast and that the unified wage structure will be applied strictly across the public sector, including state companies, thereby generating at least 500 million euros in savings.Source: Kathimerinilast_img read more

Snow Leopard Apple à nouveau attaqué en Chine

first_imgSnow Leopard : Apple à nouveau attaqué en Chine la société chinoise Jiangsu Xuebao a attaqué Apple en justice. En 2000, celle-ci aurait déposé Chine la marque Snow Léopard, utilisé par la firme de Cupertino pour désigner MAC OS X 10.6. Elle lui réclame alors 80.000 dollars de dommages-intérêts.  Apple n’aurait pas le droit d’utiliser la marque Snow Leopard en Chine, estime la société chinoise Jiangsu Xuebao. La société aurait déposé en 2000 la marque Xuebao sur 42 produits divers (logiciels, produits ménagers, produits chimiques etc.). Xuebao qui s’avère en fait le terme chinois pour désigner Snow Léopard… Apple avait pourtant essayé en octobre 2008 sollicité l’enregistrement du nom de code de son Mac OS X 10.6, Snow Léopard, auprès de l’administration générale de l’industrie et du commerce en Chine. Cette demande avait alors été rejeté à l’époque. Un tribunal de Shanghai a alors validé la plainte de la société chinoise et une première audience devrait avoir lieu le 10 juillet prochain. Jiangsu Xuebao exige également des excuses publiques de la part d’Apple et réclame environ 80.000 dollars de dommages-intérêts (62.000 euros). Au vu de la récente affaire Proview, on pourrait alors croire que des opportunistes ont été inspirés par la défaite d’Apple.Une affaire qui fait des émules À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ? En début de semaine, Apple a dû en effet trouver un accords à l’amiable avec la société chinoise Proview. Cette dernière avait déposé avant la marque à la pomme, le nom iPad en Chine. La firme de Cupertino devait alors verser 60 millions de dollars pour récupérer le nom de son produit dans l’empire du milieu. Mais dans cette nouvelle affaire judiciaire, il reste peu probable que Jiangsu Xuebao remporte le procès. Apple utilise en effet le nom anglais Snow Leopard, tandis que la société chinoise n’a déposé que le nom chinois Xuebao. Néanmoins, dans une interview accordée au site de médias NPR (lien non disponible), Stan Abrams, avocat américain et enseignant spécialisé dans la propriété intellectuelle à l’université de Pékin, montrait toute de même une certaine inquiétude. Selon lui, la décision de la cour de justice dans l’affaire Proview va encourager les parties d’affaires similaires à trouver des arrangements pécuniaires, au lieu d’inciter l’établissement de nouvelles lois dans le domaine. Le nombre de procès pour violation de marque déposée risque donc d’exploser en Chine.Le 4 juillet 2012 à 16:30 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Bournemouth University sees 40 of staff sign up for wellbeing and sustainability

first_imgBournemouth University has seen 40% of its 2,000 employees sign up and participate in its employee wellbeing and sustainability programme.The initiative, provided by Green Rewards, was rolled out to all employees in January 2018 on completion of a six-month pilot period in 2017.The programme provides bespoke activities aligned to the University’s BU2025 strategic plan which encourage employees to boost their health and wellbeing, as well as work to reduce carbon emissions to create a more sustainable environment.The wellbeing and sustainability schemes uses leader boards, gamification and team and individual prizes to motivate employees to earn green points for addressing aspects of the global United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which Bournemouth University has committed to delivering. Monthly prizes are awarded to top-performing individuals and the team with the most green points are rewarded by being able to make an annual charity donation.Employees are further rewarded for signing the Sustainable Development Goal Accord, which is a commitment by learning institutions to support each other in achieving the SDGs.Since January 2018, participating employees have completed nearly 10,000 hours of exercise and have travelled 130,000 miles sustainably to and from the University on their commutes. The programme has also enabled employees to avoid more than 400 tonnes of CO2 emissions and 515kg of disposable cup waste.The overall team prize after six months was won by the University’s finance and performance team. For their prize, they gave £100 worth of food donations to the Bournemouth Foodbank.Dr Neil Smith, sustainability manager at Bournemouth University, said: “Right from the start, the Green Rewards programme has allowed us to achieve fantastic levels of engagement from staff and has been excellent in supporting our university sustainability and wellbeing initiatives. It’s great to see so many staff getting involved and receiving prizes for their positive actions.“A survey of participants found that the majority thought Green Rewards supports the university in reducing its environmental impacts, and over two thirds felt they had improved their sustainable behaviours at work showing that the programme has made a real, long-lasting impact.“We’re looking forward to seeing some exciting redevelopments of the programme and new activities for staff to take part in, in September.”last_img read more

National Journal Swaps Subscriptions for Membership Model

first_imgIn a letter to readers earlier this month, Atlantic Media owner and chairman David Bradley outlined an upcoming membership service for the National Journal Group that will supplant its existing subscription model. Membership with the Group will be at an annual fixed price and include access to all of its products as well as some new services.Bradley’s memo, as initially reported by Politico–a competitor of National Journal–and announced today by Atlantic Media, wanders through a review of his career highlights–mostly to set up the premise of National Journal’s new membership model. Bradley’s first company was a market research firm, he explains, and here he learned a valuable lesson: “Our work for clients-our work for banks in particular-taught us an insight wholly unexpected: the force of membership.”Fast forward to the present and Bradley notes that the National Journal Group is now beset by a number of competing brands. “Is there any major media company or sudden start-up not practicing Washington journalism?”Now, after a “multimillion dollar investment,” and as a way to differentiate itself from those competitors, the National Journal Group is moving to a membership service inspired by Bradley’s first company. “I would like to convert our purpose from cross-selling new publications to the membership ethic of unlimited service to our readers,” he says in the letter. The move is not one made out of urgency-Bradley notes the National Journal is producing its second highest income in 40 years–but rather one that attempts to make the brand more than just a news and analysis content engine. National Journal has a paid circ of about 15,000. Supporting the model are some very generous membership “ethics” that Bradley outlines in the memo. Aside from referring to subscribers as members, The National Journal Group will allow one membership to extend to an organization’s entire employee base and each member has access to every product. Also, there is a name-your-price loophole for members that think the fee is too high, and organizations can simply stop paying their membership fee when budgets are tight. “We are pleased to continue organizations as members without any charge for as long as their budgets require,” says Bradley. With the new membership structure come new services, including new bite-sized briefing products, annual research reports and member summits. The model does away with the costs behind individual product marketing and audience development as well as cross-selling efforts, greatly simplifying access, but the squishy fee structure, conversion success and positioning to advertisers are big questions. When contacted, Justin Smith, Atlantic Media’s president, declined to offer specifics on the membership fees, noting that the group is still in discussions with subscribers on the new pricing structure. Smith says the new model has been under consideration since earlier this year. “We’ve spent the last several months surveying our customers and identifying their unmet needs. We decided earlier this year that we could better serve them through a membership program that would provide them access to all of our journalism plus an enriched suite of information, briefings, and best-practices research compiled by a new, independent research staff-and other tools designed to meet the specific needs of public policy professionals.” As for conversion rates, Smith would only say that the response has been “very positive,” and declined to say if current subscribers automatically converted to the new membership model. “We will be talking this through with our subscribers over the next few months. We want those conversations to take place first before discussing the details publicly.”last_img read more

PIC Disha Patani gets trolled for showing off too much in lingerie

first_imgDisha Patani InstagramDisha Patani is one such celeb from the industry who has an equal number of haters for each of her fans. Not only do these haters and trolls keep track of all her pictures, videos, movements and updates but, never refrain from giving their two-cents either.Disha, who regularly endorses a lingerie brand on her Instagram, had recently shared some scintillating pictures of her wearing a red-coloured lingerie. While the picture soon went viral, with many complimenting the actress for such a perfect body, there were many who felt that the picture showed a bit ‘too much’.While a few questioned why Tiger Shroff doesn’t say anything to her on such photos, there were a few comments which said she doesn’t need this kind of publicity. Recently on Karan Johar’s show, Koffee with Karan, KJo had questioned Tiger about why they are always spotted together.”I am great friends with her. I love her company and we are keeping it at that. We both have very similar interests. I don’t have very many friends in the industry and she is one of the few people whom I get along with,” Tiger had said.While Tiger may have chosen his words quite carefully, papa Jackie Shroff has certainly spilled the beans on his relationship while talking to Mumbai Mirror. “Tiger found his first friend, who is a girl, at 25. Till then he never looked around. They share the same passions, dance and work-out together. She comes from a family of army officers, so, she understands the value of discipline. Who knows they may get married in future or remain friends for life. For now, they are just friends.”Well, we certainly don’t see anything wrong in this picture of Disha Patani and really hope the duo soon come out in the open and accept their relationship.last_img read more

Woman Watch Repairer Gets Hall of Fame Bid

first_imgFor Black History Month, the AFRO presents a series of articles highlighting important local heroes from the paper’s archives. We start off this week with Lillian Nutter, an expert watch repairer.In 1940, Lillian Nutter was nominated for the AFRO’s Hall of Fame. (AFRO File Photo)Because she is one of the few women in this country who are expert watch-repairers, Mrs. Lillian Nutter of 1719 Harlem Avenue is this week’s nominee for the AFRO’s Hall of Fame.For more than five years, Mrs. Nutter has worked daily alongside of Colvin R. Nutter, her husband, helping to repair watches and clocks, at their store in the 1200 block of Pennsylvania Avenue.Has Charming MannerMrs. Nutter is not the type of woman you would expect to see sitting at a work bench in a jewelry store – that is, if you would expect to see any woman handling that type of work. Small, pleasant-faced, and the possessor of a charming manner, she has the appearance, instead, of a woman whose interest rarely go beyond her home.Bearing the maiden name of Gray, Mrs. Nutter is a native of Calvert County, Md., and is one of a family of seven children. Before her marriage, she supported herself by her work as a seamstress.‘Twas Love at First SightApproximately seven years ago, she met Mr. Nutter, one Sunday afternoon, when her sister invited him to her house for dinner. It was love at first sight, and, shortly afterwards, they were married.Right away, Mrs. Nutter began to take an active interest in her husband’s jewelry business. Beginning in his store as a clerk and secretary, later she began studying the art of repairing timepieces under his guidance, and, in a year’s time, she was far enough advanced to handle the simple repair work.Now, she is fully capable of handling a watch repairing establishment by herself, and, according to Mr. Nutter, is an expert on both the theory and practice of watch repairing.Aside from all of this, Mr. Nutter declares that Mrs. Nutter is positively the best cook in the city, and is the only person he has ever known who could cook a turkey to suit his taste.Loves to CookMrs. Nutter readily admitted that she loved to cook, and also liked to read and play tennis. Not caring for fiction, her reading is generally confined to biographies, books on metaphysics, and other non-fiction works.Having been coached by her husband, who is himself a player of no mean ability, Mrs. Nutter has made such rapid strides in her tennis that she is now thinking seriously of entering one or two of larger tournaments this year.She’s a Bit ModestAlong with her husband, she has been a member of Metropolitan Methodist Church for a number of years. There are no children.Although she is a rather frank person, Mrs. Nutter is just a little modest when there is any mention of the fact that her advancement in her chosen profession has made her an outstanding character. Yet, her explanation of it all is that she thinks every woman should interest herself in her husband’s business, and help him as much as possible to make is successful.last_img read more

Baltimores Jess Hilarious Talks New Fox Comedy Rel

first_imgBy Jannah G. Johnson, Special to the AFROFox’s new sitcom “Rel” is a multi-camera comedy show based on comic Rel Howery’s life. In it he portrays a recently separated husband whose wife had an affair with his barber.The show chronicles Rel’s transition from a married to single man and a live in to long-distance father. Although Rel is the star of the show a lot of buzz for the show has been garnered by its supporting actress Baltimore’s own, Jessica Moore.Jessica Moore, aka Jess Hilarious, is one of the stars of the new Fox show ‘Rel.’Known as “Jess Hilarious,” Moore is a standup comedian best known for her appearances on Nick Cannon’s “Wild ‘N Out” and her Instagram segment “Jess with the Mess.” Moore has amassed an enormous following on Instagram with more than 3.5 million followers. She has also used her social media platform to launch her career as a comedienne opening for Martin Lawrence and Mike Epps and recently receiving the Clapback Award at BET’s recent Social Media Awards.“I knew I made it when Martin Lawrence called me and asked me to open for him. I had only done five stand-up shows and I had to perform in front of 1,300 people that night in my city. I was prepared. I had a whole script and everything but when I got out there I just threw it all away and ran with it. After the show he said ‘You’re the best opening act I’ve had, like you’re good.’ That’s when I knew I could do something with this, I could do something with being funny,” Moore says at a preview event for the Fox show at Landmark Harbor East on September 6.How has Jess risen to fame so quickly? She credits God and her work ethic to her success.“God is in everything I do. Rel and I facilitate prayers on set before we even start shooting…God is the only way I can make it out in LA on my own,” says Jess, who has recently moved to Los Angeles from Baltimore.Coming from Baltimore has proved to be a barrier she must hurdle in the industry, but Jess is prepared to deal with this obstacle and encourages other young artists to as well.“I feel like Baltimore is overlooked in the industry. There’s so much talent out here and they don’t trust us. Fox originally didn’t want me because they said I was too green. You know? It’s so much talent out here but all we’re known for is “The Wire.” I encourage everyone from my city to get out there. If I can do it you can too.”Moore hopes to eventually branch out into a show of her own and says she has some huge things planned in order to bring her Jess with the Mess segment to the big screen.“I’ve always wanted to be famous, I wanted to model but you know it didn’t work out like that,” Moore chuckled. “What’s next for me? Television, “Jess with the Mess” is coming to TV. I’m also working on a standup special. That’s why I haven’t been posting to Instagram as much. I don’t want to water down my content because soon you’ll be getting it for 30 minutes at a time.”‘Rel’ premiered September 9 and will air regularly on Sundays Fox.last_img read more

World of Warcraft lost 800000 more subscribers last quarter has the en

first_imgWorld of Warcraft lost 800,000 subscribers in the last quarter, according to numbers revealed by Blizzard CEO Mike Morhaime during an Activision Blizzard quarterly conference call on Tuesday.As of September 30th, the ending of ActiBlizz’s previous quarter, WoW held 10.3 million paying players. The previous quarterly result had been 11.1 million, which itself was down from a 12 million peak.Morhaime explained that the bulk of the losses came from Eastern territories, including China and Korea. What’s more, expansions like Cataclysm are only yielding temporary spikes in players. Experienced players resubscribe to the game to play the expansion content but unsubscribe again as soon as they complete it. That gave a net loss of nearly 1 million subscribers, according to reports from the call. Mists of Pandaria, a panda-ful content expansion pictured above, was announced at last month’s BlizzCon fan convention and is expected to launch next year.Also at BlizzCon, the company also announced that it’s giving away Diablo III to players who buy a year’s subscription to WoW. Rather than pay month-to-month, a down payment of a year’s worth of subscription money will get you the WoW Annual Pass and D3 for free.via GamasutraBlake’s OpinionThe gaming press has often looked for signs of the decline of World of Warcraft. Falling subscriber numbers have been a telltale sign, but for me it’s really the Diablo III tie-in. Blizzard’s willingness to discount WoW — by just throwing in a free copy of their hugely anticipated new game — shows a certain sense of urgency coming from Irvine.Morhaime pointed out that the losses of players are concentrated in Asia. Over there, Blizzard’s taking an old-school business model (paid subscriptions) to a very forward-thinking region of the world, where the free-to-play model has already been dominant for years. While Blizzard’s product is undoubtedly of higher quality than many Asian online games, it faces ever-increasing competition from regional publishers, like Korea’s Nexon and NCSoft, who are rapidly improving and have better ties within the various Asian markets. Moreover, Asian online game players are known to consume content faster than their Western counterparts, so for the (substantially more) gamers who’ve “finished” WoW, a major content expansion won’t hold their attention, either.Speaking of Asian markets, how are they supposed to react to a WoW expansion that’s full of Chinese-caricature architecture and humanoid pandas? Pandaria‘s reaction among the western BlizzCon crowd was underwhelming. Compared to the major in-game changes that came with Cataclysm, Pandaria is just a new area to go quest in and that’s about it. It’s a fair prediction that the Kung Fu Panda look-alike expansion will flop in East and West alike, accelerating this subscriber downfall even further.last_img read more

Our radiology managers and technologists selected Carestream’s DRX systems because they marry advanced features that address our imaging needs with ease of use and excellent image quality,” said Kelly Oppe, imaging director for Carle (Urbana, Ill.).“Our team also sees evidence of Carestream’s continuing investment in enhancing their software and hardware. We want to align with a supplier that is going to deliver new features and technologies that can further expand our imaging capabilities in the future,” she said.  “Another important reason we chose Carestream is their ability to deliver multiple digital radiology solutions, from a portable system to standard or premium rooms or detector upgrades to existing systems,” Oppe explained. “This creates an easy transition for technologists who are operating multiple X-ray systems at one location or multiple locations. It streamlines equipment management and delivers greater cost effectiveness.”  A DRX-Evolution Plus system with two Carestream DRX Plus 3543 detectors is installed in the Carle on Curtis outpatient center in Champaign, and a second DRX-Evolution Plus will be installed at the 393-bed Carle Foundation Hospital in Urbana later this year.“This advanced imaging system offers an extended tube column for enhanced flexibility and an autotracking feature that moves the X-ray tube into position to help reduce fatigue and repetitive stress injuries for technologists,” according to Pattie McCord, the organization’s director of East Regional Imaging.The DRX-Evolution Plus expedites capture of long-length imaging studies, orthopedic and cross-table exams and is designed to accommodate advanced imaging applications in the future.DRX-Ascend imaging systems are installed at two Carle outpatient clinics in Danville. Like the DRX-Evolution Plus, the DRX-Ascend offers an elevating float-top table and accommodates patients ranging from children to adults and patients who use wheelchairs. A rotating detector tray for both the table and wall stand allows for quick and controlled manual portrait/landscape rotation of the DRX detector without lifting it out of the tray.“Both imaging platforms also offer a multi-color touch screen on the tube stand for generator control and image preview within the exam room, which boosts productivity and convenience for both patients and technologists,” according to McCord.Carestream DRX detectors can be used with any DRX system to help deliver flexibility and radiology productivity. Carestream’s table also lowers to a height of about 21 inches, which is extremely helpful in imaging ill or injured patients.For more information: FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Technology | Radiographic Fluoroscopy (RF) | August 09, 2019 Shimadzu Medical Systems Receives FDA 510(k) for FluoroSpeed X1 RF System Shimadzu Medical Systems USA, a subsidiary of Shimadzu Corp., announced they have received U.S. Food and Drug… read more News | Radiology Business | June 26, 2019 Konica Minolta Healthcare and the Emory Healthcare Innovation Hub Partner to Drive Innovation in Healthcare Konica Minolta Healthcare Americas, Inc. read more Feature | Information Technology | June 27, 2019 | By Greg Freiherr Smart Algorithm Extracts Data from Radiology Reports Radiology reports may contain information essential to figuring out a patient’s condition. read more Technology | Digital Radiography (DR) | July 25, 2019 Samsung Announces New iQuia Premium Digital Radiography Platform Samsung has announced iQuia, a new digital radiography (DR) platform of premium products and technologies that improves… read more last_img read more
