The tablet space is starting to get a little crowded. While the iPad Best Price at Amazon is still seated far above the others in terms of sales, the competition is starting to get it together. The Nexus 7 and Kindle Fire have started to make some dents in Apple’s market share.Apple has been famously opposed to 7-inch tablets, but the rumors surrounding a new 7.85-inch iPad Mini are reaching deafening levels. It very well could be that Apple plans to put a stop to the growth that these smaller, less expensive devices have been scratching out with a new device of their own. Instead of announcing this tablet at the same time that the new iPhone is announced, Apple is expected to hold a separate event in October to release this new tablet.October is expected to be a very interesting month for gadgets. Amazon and Google will be busy fighting with each other after the new Kindle devices are on shelves, and Microsoft has planned the release of their Surface tablet on the 26th.Throwing a new iPad into that mix will create an interesting powder keg. Apple’s tablet offerings are soon to be challenged by three different competitors, and each of their tablets offer an impressive take on how we should be computing. Depending on when in October the iPad Mini would be announced, Microsoft’s Surface tablet risks being drowned out by consumers eager to try Apple’s latest device.Like the Surface tablet, there’s still no mention of price for the new iPad yet. Apple has never been a company particularly interested in racing to the bottom, but it will be difficult to convince consumers that the iPad mini is worth the extra cash. The Nexus 7 especially has demonstrated an amazing experience for $200, and with the holiday season upon us, price will be a significant factor.via Bloomberg
Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Greek Finance Minister George Papaconstantinou last week expressed satisfaction over the understanding, as he said, shown by Eurogroup president Jean Claude Juncker and EU Economy and Monetary Affairs Commissioner Joaquin Almunia towards Athens’ efforts at greater fiscal consolidation. Speaking to reporters after an ECOFIN meeting here, the minister stressed it was very positive the fact that EU officials acknowledged that positive steps were taken towards the right direction, while they (officials) categorically rejected speculation over the “collapse” of the Greek economy.Papaconstantinou said the Greek problem was mainly a problem of policies implemented by the previous government and stressed that an ECOFIN decision to proceed with the next step of disciplinary procedures against Greece for its excessive deficits was a clear line dividing the past and the future. “A future which will be judged based on decisions taken by the current government and will be recorded not only in the 2010 state budget but mainly in an updated Stability and Growth program to be submitted to the European Commission in January,” he said.The Greek minister said he briefed his counterparts in a Eurogroup meeting over the main aspects of next year’s budget, which aims at supporting the growth of the economy and put the country’s public finances in order by cutting the fiscal deficit by 3.6 percentage points next year. Papaconstantinou said the government will table a new draft law on the tax system to Parliament in May, along with measures to drastically cut overspending in the public sectors, opening a dialogue on the reform of the social insurance system and actions to improving economic competitiveness.He said the European Commission has not made any recommendations to Greece towards cutting or freezing public sector wages.Papaconstantinou reassured markets that Greek state securities were a very good investment.
Royaume-Uni : l’écureuil roux a retrouvé son habitatAprès 50 ans de labeur acharné, des volontaires ont réussi à restituer aux désormais rares écureuils roux un habitat viable sur une petite île du Dorset. Leur principal ennemi : les rhododendrons invasifs, qui étouffaient la forêt.Depuis 1962, 15.000 volontaires, du louveteau au retraité, sous la houlette du Dorset Wildlife Trust, ont participé à la réhabilitation de l’île de Brownsea, au large de la côte du Dorset, littéralement envahie par les buissons de rhododendrons qui étouffaient le couvert végétal originel. Leur but : restituer aux quelques 250 écureuils roux de l’île un habitat propice.À lire aussiUn écureuil nous donne une leçon de déblayage de neige”Quand nous sommes arrivés ici en 1962, on pouvait à peine marcher sur l’île, la terre était vraiment mourante à cause des rhododendrons. Les premiers jours, nous avions du mal à voir les écureuils. Et maintenant, un jour comme celui-ci, vous pourrez probablement en voir une douzaine”, explique Richard Yeoman, un volontaire, au terme de décennies d’arrachage des plantes parasites et de restauration de la forêt.Le nombre d’écureuils roux devrait augmenter sur ce sanctuaire exempt d’écureuil gris – l’envahissant rival du roux – à mesure que la forêt se régénère. Ceci grâce au patient labeur du Dorset Wildlife Trust et du National Trust, qui se sont partagés le travail, et grâce surtout à l’énergie des défricheurs, amoureux du sympathique petit rongeur.Le 2 octobre 2011 à 13:03 • Maxime Lambert

Also pictured: His son Jacob Begich, wife Deborah Bonito and lieutenant governor running mate Debra Call. The three-way race includes Gov. Bill Walker, an independent, former state Sen. Mike Dunleavy, a Republican, and Begich, a Democrat. (Photo by Liz Ruskin/Alaska Public Media)Former U.S. Sen. Mark Begich announced that he’s staying in the race for governor. This sets up a three-way race between Begich, former state Sen. Mike Dunleavy and Gov. Bill Walker.Listen now“Alaska’s never given up on me, and I won’t give up on Alaska,” Begich said at a press conference in Anchorage on Tuesday. “For those that are wondering, I’m staying in this race for governor.”Both power brokers and conflicted voters have expressed concern that the Democratic Begich and independent Walker will compete for the same voters.A recent poll commissioned by the Alaska AFL-CIO found Dunleavy, a Republican, would win a three-way race by 10 points, but would lose to both Walker and Begich in a two-way race.Both Begich and Walker resisted calls to withdraw. Begich said he will fight for women’s right to make their own health care decisions. He also highlighted his support for protecting permanent fund dividends. And he said he would work to fully fund education and to reduce crime.“It’s a three-way race, so get used to it,” he said. “We are focusing on what this race is about: the people of Alaska. Alaskans will need to make their choice of who they will support and vote accordingly. You cannot cut a deal on your values, just to make sure that one person or another becomes governor.”Begich wouldn’t answer questions about how his decision to stay in the race could lead to Dunleavy winning.Begich has criticized recent cuts to PFDs made by Walker and the Legislature. Walker and lawmakers said they made the cuts to help close the gap between what the state spends and what it raises in oil royalties, taxes and fees.Both Begich and Walker have said they would make up for any long-lasting budget gap with new revenue. Neither have campaigned on a specific tax proposal.Dunleavy opposes new taxes. He has said he would use permanent fund earnings to pay for higher PFDs. But he hasn’t said how deeply he would draw down permanent fund earnings.Four years ago, Democratic nominee Byron Mallott joined his ticket with Walker, and the Alaska Democratic Party supported Walker and Mallott.
Maruti Suzuki’s next offering in the sedan segment, Ciaz, is not expected until September but the spy photos of the car has been doing the rounds on the web for quite sometime.Now the latest in the line is an image posted by the MotorBeam team, which shows Ciaz being tested outside Maruti’s Gurgaon plant. The car is seen heavily camouflaged, thus not revealing much details on its design.Ciaz, the new entry into the C-segment, was first seen at the Delhi Auto Expo 214 and is likely to make its India debut in September. The car, codenamed YL1, is expected to replace the underperforming SX4 sedan in the country and resembles the Suzuki Authentics concept car, which was shown at the 2013 Shanghai Motor Show.Ciaz is likely to pack the same 1.3 liter Multijet diesel or 1.4 liter K Series petrol engine of Ertiga. Under the hood, it is expected to carry some of the features of both SX4 and Ertiga. Other speculated features of the car include 16-inch alloy wheels, keyless entry, push button start, puddle lamps and leather seats.The car is also expected to host a number of safety features like Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) with Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD). Rumours are also rife that the Maruti’s new sedan will get the Automated Manual Transmission (AMT) technology, which was introduced with the new Maruti Suzuki Celerio. Ciaz will take on the likes of Hyundai Verna, Honda City and Volkswagen Vento.Maruti is also rumoured to launch the AMT version of Alto K10. Alto K10, a successful small offering of Marurti, has seen a dip in its sales in recent years. The introduction of the AMT variant of Alto K10 is expected to salvage its losing charm in the sub-continent market.(Edited by Vishnuprasad S Pillai)
United Airlines planes on the tarmac at San Francisco International Airport in San Francisco, California. AFP file photoUnited Airlines found itself in the middle of a social media storm on Monday, after the US carrier forcefully removed a passenger from a flight due to overbooking.The incident occurred Sunday on a United Express flight bound for Louisville, Kentucky, from Chicago. United Express flights are operated by one of eight regional airlines which partner with United.The airline said it had asked for volunteers to give up their seats on the flight, and police were called after one passenger refused to leave the plane.Smartphone video posted online showed three Chicago Department of Aviation police officers struggling with a seated middle-aged man.The man started to scream as he is dragged off while other passengers looked on—some recording the event with their phones.One passenger can be heard yelling, “Oh my God, look at what you did to him!”The incident ignited social media outrage, with “United” a trending term on Twitter, Facebook and Google.It was another example of bad press and negative social media coverage for United, after an incident in late March when two teenage girls were denied boarding a flight in Denver because they wore leggings.The airline defended its action, saying the girls were flying on passes that require them to abide by a dress code in return for free or discounted travel.In Sunday’s incident, United told US media that it had asked for volunteers to leave the overbooked plane.“One customer refused to leave the aircraft voluntarily and law enforcement was asked to come to the gate,” United spokesman Charlie Hobart was quoted by the Chicago Tribune newspaper as saying.The airline did not return AFP’s request for comment.United Airlines chief executive Oscar Munoz addressed the latest controversy in a statement posted Monday on the airline’s website.“This is an upsetting event to all of us,” Munoz said, adding that the airline was conducting a “detailed review of what happened.”“We are also reaching out to this passenger to talk directly to him and further address and resolve this situation,” he said.Tyler Bridges, who posted video of Sunday’s incident on Twitter, wrote: “not a good way to treat a Doctor trying to get to work because they overbooked.”He described passenger reaction on the plane as “disturbed.”“Kids were crying,” he said.Bridges also wrote that the man appeared bloodied by his encounter with law enforcement and posted video showing him later running back on the plane, repeatedly saying, “I have to go home.”The man appeared to be pacing and disoriented.US airlines are allowed to involuntarily bump passengers off overbooked flights, with compensation, if enough volunteers cannot be found, according to the US Department of Transportation.

Greg Abbott is set to meet with President Donald Trump on Friday at the White House.The meeting, scheduled for 11 a.m. Eastern Time in the Oval Office, will include Charter Communications CEO Thomas Rutledge, according to the White House.The topic of the meeting was not immediately clear, but it comes as the cable company moves forward with plans to open its first Spanish-language call center in McAllen. The call center is expected to add over 600 jobs to the border city. Since winning the presidential election last year, Trump has looked to highlight — and take credit for — new investments that companies have been making in the United States. Abbott’s meeting with Trump also comes the same day the U.S. House is expected to vote on Republicans’ plan to repeal and replace Obamacare after postponing the vote Thursday.

Many gamers will be settling down to play through BioShock Infinite today, some later than others if you chose to buy the physical copy of the PC version.One of the bonuses of completing the game is unlocking 1999 Mode, which can be described as an ultra hard setting. It’s not just a harder game mode, though, it’s both more difficult and a different experience.AdChoices广告1999 Mode is named after the release year of the game System Shock 2, which several employees of Irrational Games worked on, including Ken Levine. Just like that game, 1999 Mode will force the player to make decisions about specializations that cannot be reversed and could even render certain parts of the game unbeatable. Yes, 1999 Mode will inevitably force game restarts depending on your choices.If that sounds like the perfect challenge to you, the good news is you don’t have to complete BioShock Infinite in order to unlock the mode. Irrational has included an alternative unlock mechanism. You simply enter the well-known Konami Code.In the past, Ken Levine has said the game definitely wouldn’t allow the unlock to happen through a code, but he was either joking at the time or changed his mind. From the main menu you can enter the following sequence of button presses and the 1999 Mode will appear as an option:Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, B, A (or O, X on PS3)On PC, it will be whatever keys you have setup for cancel and confirm actions to replace the last two button presses in the sequence.I suspect most gamers will want to play the game to completion normally before attempting 1999 Mode. But the Konami Code is there in case you can’t wait. It’s also a welcome addition to the game as it does change the gameplay dynamics enough to make it a different experience. It’s not just you playing the same game again only having to play better to survive.
Nintendo is Killing Miiverse in Japan This NovemberThere’s a Reason Why Link Doesn’t Wear His Iconic Green Hat … Stay on target A few days ago I fired up my Wii U and played through the recent port of Severed, an indie game released earlier this year from the folks behind Guacamelee. Contrary to popular opinion, I really enjoy my Wii U and play it more often than you’d expect. However, there’s no denying that soon the console will be dead. Sooner or later Nintendo will have to reveal the NX, you know, that machine coming out in five months.This means every time I boot up my Wii U could be the last time. Every new game I play on it could be the last new game. This isn’t a new experience. It happens every time an older console generation dies so a new one can be born. However, this time, I realized something has changed. This time could also be the last time I use a certain console for the last time. Some of the most interesting video games come out near the death of a console. But what will happen if console death itself becomes a thing of the past?The life and death of a video game console used to be a fairly predictable cycle. A fun cycle to experience, but a predictable one to look back on. New systems would launch at roughly the same time with roughly the same power. Launch games were technical showpieces maybe with some exciting ideas that usually lacked content because they were rushed to market, especially if they were from third parties. As the years went on, the install bases grew, developers became more confident with the hardware, and the games improved. Soon enough it would be time for the next cycle of consoles and players were left with the last vestiges of old-gen software as developers shifted the bulk of their attention to the shiny new hardware.A lot of fascinating games were released during those twilight periods for waning game consoles, games free from the pressure to be huge tentpoles that could instead let their creativity flourish. I’m talking about games like Drill Dozer for the Game Boy Advance, Wario’s Woods for the NES, Final Fantasy XII for the PlayStation 2, Conker’s Bad Fur Day for the N64, Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath for the original Xbox, and Donkey Kong Jungle Beat for the GameCube. I now also include Severed in this quality bunch, but we’ll get to that later.However, this cycle is breaking down. The last generation was several years longer than past cycles. Eight years passed between the launch of the Xbox 360 and the Xbox One, double the time between the 360 and the original Xbox. The first few years of this last cycle resembled past cycles, but then we entered this strange overtime where even though the games on the consoles had already peaked in terms of quality, developers still had to crank out more of them. This is why we got extraneous sequels like Gears of War: Judgment and God of War: Ascension. I remember in 2008 hearing rumors that Microsoft was about to unveil a 360 successor, and while that’s so untrue it’s almost quaint now, peripherals like the Kinect, Wii MotionPlus, and PlayStation Move did basically turn their respective boxes into new machines.Eventually, proper new consoles did debut, but the sheer length of the previous cycle and fears about the viability of this cycle kept things from going back to normal. Instead of getting an intriguing crop of twilight games for the 360 and PS3, developers simply created games for old and new consoles alike. AAA games like GTA V, Metal Gear Solid V, Shadow of Mordor, Destiny, and Rise of the Tomb Raider were all cross-generation releases. And every day it seems like another 360/PS3 game is being “remastered” for the new consoles, HD remakes of games that were already in HD.Now the final destruction of the cycle is almost in sight. Later this year Sony will release the PS4 Pro, not the next PlayStation but an upgraded version of the existing PlayStation. Meanwhile, Project Scorpio arrives next year, a significantly improved console Microsoft still insists is part of the Xbox One family. Together these moves suggest console generations as we knew them are over. Like smartphones or PCs, console manufacturers will now improve and make iterations on existing machines rather than starting over from scratch every five or so years.There are upsides to this trend. Maintaining continuity between different versions of a console makes it easier to preserve backward compatibility. Developers will also likely appreciate having more power in a console they are familiar with, rather than having to learn how to code for an entirely new device. However, consumers might be confused by this shift, at least initially. It’s easy to understand the difference between a PS4 and PS3. A PS4 vs a PS4 Pro is a little trickier. There’s also the fear of these expensive toys becoming obsolete faster through the power of brutal capitalism. Then again, parents of NES-owning children were also outraged at first after the Super Nintendo launched. They got over it.This brings us back to the Wii U. Like I said the whole reason I started thinking about all this future was because I realized how Severed might be the last Wii U game I play aside from maybe Paper Mario: Color Splash, which I’m also playing and enjoying. I plan on picking up The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild on the NX. Unlike the PS4 and Xbox One, the Wii U is definitely going away. What little we know about the NX suggests it will be a clean break, not an incremental upgrade. But if this is the last time that shift happens to a console, that means this is the last set of those twilight games.Fortunately, Severed fits that tradition in a really great way. In Severed players control a one-armed girl named Sasha slashing her way to recover her family’s corpses in a stylish hellscape that continues Canadian developer DrinkBox Studios’ obsession with all things Latin American. The first-person perspective evokes classic computer RPGs like Ultima but the layered dungeon design and pattern-heavy sword combat are very much Zelda meets Infinity Blade. It’s quite satisfying. The game first launched on the PlayStation Vita (another dead video game machine) and is available on iOS as well. But this is a touch-driven game I can’t imagine not playing with a stylus, and the big screen of the Wii U GamePad makes this superior to the 3DS version also included with the purchase. Regardless of platform, I think Severed is a game worth playing, but it’s even more meaningful to me now as part of the farewell tour for both the Wii U and perhaps the very idea of video game console farewell tours.Maybe this is all premature. Maybe the NX will also have a traditional console cycle or maybe we will one day see an actual PlayStation 5 or a totally new Xbox. But video games are technology, and when technology changes it tends to keep changing rather than change but then go back to the way things were. So, severed from the past, soon we may all find ourselves in the peculiar position of not commemorating dead consoles but commemorating the dead concept of dead consoles.
The NBA world was buzzing this morning, after a story reported that LeBron James would consider a move to the Warriors if they opened up a max salary slot. Colin doesn’t believe there’s any real chance LeBron winds up with Golden State, and thinks the sexy rumor smells like another poorly veiled leak from LeBron’s camp to voice his displeasure with the current dysfunctional state of the Cavs.Colin has always supported player mobility, and was one of the lone national voices to defend LeBron’s move to Miami, but joining up with the Dubs would be ring chasing of the highest order and would do nothing to further James’ legacy. From Golden State’s side of the equation, they seem to being doing fine without him.Watch Colin explain why he thinks the internet scorching rumor is nothing but more smoke from LeBron.“The chances of this are highly unlikely. It’s ring chasing to an extreme position.” — @ColinCowherd doesn’t think LeBron will join the Warriors pic.twitter.com/uDAdv1W7wX— Herd w/Colin Cowherd (@TheHerd) February 1, 2018 Advertisement
