  • Battery for Toshiba PA3729U-1BAS

    Hollywood studios have always limited distribution to a local country inside the EU, believing they can get more money by licensing movies exclusively in each territory.This was the perfect trigger for 21st Century Fox, which owns programming assets in the US, India and Australia, as well as the UK. Since the European Commission made this order, Sky, 39 per cent controlled by 21st Century Fox, has moved to sell service to British viewers who live overseas within Europe, and has pushed its Now TV service in Spain, but only in English for the many UK viewers there who have watched Sky with impunity, from the satellite feed by buying access in the UK and taking their decryption card to Spain.Now that activity has been legitimized, and Sky is on a global quest to grow its OTT businesses as broadly as possible in a pre-emptive strike on local pay TV businesses.It had already helped fund iFlix in May 2015 with a $45m investment to chase Asia Pacific SVoD domination, in partnership with the Catcha Group and Philippine Long Distance Telephone Company and iFlix has tied up deals with Hollywood and most of the local telcos to push into markets ahead of Netflix.And in September it bought into French OTT service Molotov for $4.5m, which might help with the marketing of its News services to French speakers, contained in this announcement.Sky’s European prowess currently spans the UK, Ireland, Germany, Italy and Austria, but previously it had no presence in France or Spain; aside from its loyal legion of expats with huge satellite dishes and those getting Now TV via a VPN.

    Back in October Cisco moved to take control of the 1Mainstream assets, just a few months after Sky had put its last tranche of cash into the fledgling OTT start up and it looks now like Sky saw the chance to take control of its underlying OTT technology by partnering with one of its all-time favorite technology firms.Remember Cisco bought NDS for $5.0bn in 2013, a company which had been hived off only a year earlier from 21st Century Networks, and which originally had its relationship with Sky in the UK, managing encryption for it.Cisco bought 1Mainstream in October last year, not only to please Sky, but also because it needed a more flexible, more recently written, end to end OTT system.1Mainstream has always written pure iOS, Android and TV apps, and has existing DRM relationships with Widevine and PlayReady, and already plugs into multiple CDNs. It comes with its own subscriber management and entitlements databases, and offers an online promotions system and its own CMS based analytics engine. In the past, it has worked with Envivio encoders although Sky is now pretty much exclusively Elemental, and it uses the Wowza streaming engine, and offers support for the Freewheel programmatic advertising system.

    1 Mainstream was acquired by Cisco alongside (in the same week) ParStream, a big data analytics firm, and Lancope, a cloud security firm, but we’re not sure if either of those are significant to OTT delivery.Prices of the OnPrime services vary from the lowest at around £8.99 ($11.50) in Hindi, to £17.99 ($22.75) and each come with a free month trial. We suspect now that Sky will partner with local MNOs and operators to do the marketing on these, in operator partnerships right the way across Europe and even beyond. It is even possible that Sky could engineer their sale in the US, although we imagine that such a move would come directly from Fox.In the meantime, the UK’s BBC has teamed up with the UK independent broadcaster, ITV to bring a British based service to US viewers, based on much the same logic. They are calling it Brit-Box, and it is advertising-free, paid SVoD, which will launch early next year. AMC Networks, which operates BBC America in the US, as a joint venture with BBC Worldwide, is likely to take the lead in bringing this to US viewers. BritBox will make British TV available as soon as 24 hours after being first broadcast in the UK.

    On-call Welcome again to On-Call, our weekly column in which we recount readers' tales of jobs gone wrong, often at times or for reasons that are just plain wrong.This week, meet “Aaron”, who once worked for a construction company he says “didn't need in-house IT but had delusions of grandeur and so employed me.”The company had just one server and about 30 users. Aaron says “most were former builders and mostly clueless when it came to technology.”“One such user had climbed the ranks from bricklayer to contract manager and was constantly finding fault with IT where there was none. Then one day he came in to the office declaring that he could solve all of his problems. He had seen something on TV that he claimed would make him much more efficient.”“Said item was the IBM Transnote, which our very own Lucy Sherriff covered at the time of its launch in the year 2001.

    It has a digital notepad attached, for making handwritten notes. IBM says that the digital pad can be used to fill in customised forms so will be marketed at industries where there is a lot of form filing - for example, insurance firms. "Anywhere where there is a lot of duplication," an IBM spokeswoman said. Lucy quoted the price of the machine at £2,059. Aaron remembers that price tag as rather excessive at the time, so when the chap asked for one “I laughed and said that there was no chance of us purchasing this for him.”But this user had leverage and “the call came from above that he absolutely needed this and we were to order it in immediately.” So Aaron swapped it for his perfectly functional laptop and got on with other things.Until a couple of months later when “the magical machine was placed before me with the claim that it was faulty and its fan must be broken as it was so noisy.” Aaron was pretty sure the user just couldn't figure out how to work IBM's magic digital notepad, but assured the user he would take a look at it immediately.Two weeks later Aaron told the user he'd sent the machine to IBM for repairs. But it was really still on the shelf.

    But the many disadvantages of the Tandy 200 included slow operation, a liquid crystal screen that was hard to see, and minimal storage capacity. Articles which had not yet been used by the paper - and could therefore still go astray - had to be deleted to make room for the next one.It was tempting, then, to contemplate the next generation of portables. They had virtually limitless memory compared with the Tandy, their backlit screens were easy on the eye and they ran much faster. But they were power-hungry: they had hard disks and built-in fans to keep the works cool, not to mention fancy software such as Windows. They needed heavy nickel-cadmium battery packs, but could not do without mains power for long.If you avoided using the hard disk too often, and switched off the machine while you thought, a battery pack could last four hours. That might seem plenty of time to finish one's work, but it was never that simple.Unless nickel-cadmium batteries are charged up fully, then drained fully, they lose their ability to retain any charge at all. Short of carrying a battery charger and spare packs, the peripatetic computer-user sooner or later has to use the mains to power the machine in the middle of a work session, with the kind of consequences described above.

    Dell vient de lancer deux nouveaux ordinateurs portables, dédiés à des marchés opposés : d’un côté nous trouvons un produit très léger, le Latitude 13, et de l’autre une station de travail mobile puissante, la Precision M6500. Ces deux notebooks nous ont été présentés par Franck Bernard, responsable portables professionnels chez Dell France.« Le Latitude 13 est avant tout un produit professionnel, robuste et design. Il réduit l’écart de prix constaté entre les ultraportables professionnels précédents et les CULV [Consumer Ultra-Low Voltage,NDLR] actuellement disponibles sur le marché. L’accueil de la part de nos clients est excellent. »

    Épaisseur de 16,5 mm, poids de 1,5 kg, dessus du châssis en aluminium, écran de 13,3 pouces proposant une résolution de 1366 x 768 points; cet ultraportable à de quoi séduire. Il est aussi très professionnel : processeur Intel ULV, gestion à distance, module TPM en option, disque dur classique, disque dur avec puce de chiffrement ou volume flash et large choix de systèmes d’exploitation (Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7 et Ubuntu Linux).

     

    Une belle machine, dont l’autonomie est comprise entre quatre heures trente minutes et cinq heures. Notez que l’unité de stockage optique est externe.« Nous passons de la belle à la bête. L’ordinateur portable Precision M6500 se veut une référence pour les ingénieurs et les designers. Il sera également très apprécié par les télétravailleurs. Cenotebookest conçu avec des technologies issues des PC fixes. Il intègre exclusivement des processeurs Intel Core i5 ou Core i7 et il sera possible d’ajouter jusqu’à 16 Go de mémoire vive(NDLR, quatre emplacements sont disponibles). »L’affichage est confié à un écran de 17 pouces HD (1440 x 900 points) ou Full HD (1920 x 1200 points). Les infographistes apprécieront son gamut de 100 %. Cette dalle est pilotée par des cartes graphiques disposant de 1 Go de mémoire dédiée : NVIDIA Quadro FX 2800M, NVIDIA Quadro FX 3800M ou ATI FirePro M7740. Côté stockage, vous pourrez installer deux disques durs 2,5 pouces (configurables en Raid !) et même un SSD complémentaire. Enfin, l’offre en terme de systèmes d’exploitation est pléthorique : Windows XP (via un downgrade) Windows Vista 32 bits ou 64 bits, Windows 7 32 bits ou 64 bits et la Red Hat Enterprise Linux 64 bits.

    Le tout pèse 3,8 kg et proposera une autonomie limitée (mais une station de travail mobile n’est pas conçue dans ce but).« Le Dell Precision M6500 est livré avec la technologie Latitude On. Un processeur ARM permet d’utiliser la machine pour des tâches de base, avec une bonne autonomie sur batterie… limitée toutefois par la consommation de l’écran. En plus d’outils d’accès au web, Latitude On est livré avec des clients VMware et Citrix. Le M6500 pourra ainsi se transformer enthin client. »Notez que Latitude On est accessible au démarrage de la machine, mais aussi lorsque le système d’exploitation principal est en veille. Les OS de type « instant on » utilisant le processeur principal (par exemple, Latitude On Flash) ne proposent pas cette fonctionnalité.Les Dell Latitude 13 et Dell Precision M6500 seront disponibles courant février. Leurs tarifs restent à préciser. Ils devraient se situer entre 500 et 800 euros HT selon la configuration, pour le Latitude 13, et autour de 2000 euros pour le Precision M650.

    Selon la firme chinoise Shenzhen Great Long Brother Industrial, l’iPad d’Apple ne serait qu’un clone de son produit, le tablet P88. Après l’accusation de plagiat du terme « iPad », Apple subit un feu nourri.La « tradition » veut que certaines entreprises chinoises clonent certains appareils tels que l’iPhone ou des téléphones Nokia pour le marché intérieur. Pour autant, cette fois la tendance semble s’inverser avec la plainte d’une société chinoise pour plagiat contre Apple.La firme Shenzhen Great Long Brother Industrial explique avoir déjà déposé un brevet de son tablet P88 en mai dernier. Un tablet déjà présenté voilà 6 mois et au design très proche de l ‘iPad d’Apple. Interrogé parLeMonde.fr, un responsable de la société s’est exprimé : « Je ne comprends pas. Pourquoi ont-ils fait le même produit que nous ?»

    ourtant, les deux appareils sont quelque peu différents. Disque dur de 160 gigas côté chinois contre disque Flash

     

    SSD (64 Go maximum), présence de ports USB, processeur plus puissant, utilisation de Windows et une batterie de moindre qualité (une heure et demie contre dix heures pour le modèle d’Apple). Reste à savoir ce que va donner une éventuelle action en justice. De l’aveu même des responsables chinois, une action sur le sol américain sera plus que difficile.Pour autant, Apple a toujours maille à partir avec certaines entreprises. L’iPad est déjà dans la ligne de mire de STmicroelectronics qui revendique le nom d’iPad. Une propriété également revendiquée par Fujitsu. Le constructeur japonais commercialise un produit sous la marque « iPAD » depuis 2002 aux Etats-Unis. Un terminal numérique portable pour les commerces, destiné à faciliter la consultation des prix d’un magasin.Apple doit répondre avant le 28 février s’il s’oppose à la demande d’enregistrement du nom par Fujitsu. La firme japonaise n’aurait pas encore décidé si elle compte lancer une action en justice contre Apple. Un choix qui pourrait dépendre de la popularité de l’ iPad…

    L’iPad profite des atouts d’un iPod Touch pour proposer la lecture de livres numériques. Reste à savoir s’il existe une place sur le marché. Les analystes sont partagés sur la question.La presse a plus que relaté la sortie de l ‘ardoise tactile d’Apple, l’ iPad. Pour autant, l’appareil doté d’un écran 9.7″, d’une autonomie de 10h et d’un poids d’environ 700 g (selon les configurations) a-t-il un avenir dans le secteur des contenus numériques, plus particulièrement, les livres électroniques? Point de vue d’iSuppli et de Forrester.Proposé au tarif de 499 dollars sous sa version d’entrée de gamme, l’ ardoise dévoilée hier par Steve Jobs nourrit les interrogations des observateurs. ISuppli se pose ainsi la question de savoir si l’arrivée de l’iPad va provoquer un changement des règles comme celles que l’informatique a connu avec l’arrivée de l’Apple II, du Macintosh, de l’Ipod ou de l’iPhone. Plus précisément, l’iPad est-il une révolution ?

    Kosdaq Computer Hardware Index (KOSDAQ-158) Plunges -0.55% on Sep 8
    September 8, 2017 - By Kurt Siggers

    Shares of Kosdaq Computer Hardware Index (KOSDAQ:KOSDAQ-158) last traded at 16.32, representing a move of -0.55%, or -0.09 per share, on volume of 2,037 shares. After opening the trading day at 16.44, shares of Kosdaq Computer Hardware Index traded in a close range. Kosdaq Computer Hardware Index currently has a total float of shares and on average sees shares exchange hands each day. The stock now has a 52-week low of 16.29 and high of 16.5.

    KOSPI: A Powerful Indicator Of The Asian Economy
    South Korea has one of the most progressive, fast-paced economies in Asia. It is an influential global leader that helps drive growth in the Asian economy. Leading abilities of South Korean market help Kosdaq Computer Hardware Index to attract more attention to its work. Without it, the region’s capacities are surely minimized.

    One of the most important factors backing South Korea’s successful economy is the Korea Exchange (KRX), which boasts with over $1 trillion in total market capitalization. Despite being one of the youngest stock exchanges in Asia, it has already transformed the conduct of trade and commerce in South Korea. It brings foreign investors to Kosdaq Computer Hardware Index and other companies.

    Stock Market Division of the KRX
    Under the Korea Stock Exchange and Futures Exchange Act, the KRX is divided into three: 1) the Stock Market Division; 2) the KOSDAQ Market Division; and 3) the Derivatives Market Division. All publicly traded companies are listed on the Stock Market Division of the KRX.

    The Korea Composite Stock Price Index (KOSPI), which was first published in 1983, is one of the main real-time economy indicators in South Korea as it tracks the performances of all the companies listed on the Stock Market Division of the KRX. That being said, the KOSPI had to be divided into several sub-indices. These include the KOSPI 50, which monitors the 50 most active stocks on the Stock Market Division of the KRX; the KOSPI 100, which monitors the 100 most active stocks; and the KOSPI 200, which monitors the 200 most active stocks out of more than 700 stocks. A stock can be included in the KOSPI 50 and the KOSPI 100 only if it is included in the KOSPI 200. At the same time, a stock can only be included in the KOSPI 50 if it is included in the KOSPI 100. Kosdaq Computer Hardware Index is inside the KOSPI trading operations.

    The KOSPI tracks stocks on the Stock Market Division of the KRX based on market capitalization using the base value of 100. The base date is January 4, 1980. Similarly, the KOSPI 200, which represents roughly 70% of the total market valuation on the Stock Market Division of the KRX, monitors its components using the base value of 100. The base date is April 2007.

    Historical Statistics
    In January 1981, the KOSPI had reached its all-time low of 93.10 points. In May 2011, it had reached its all-time high of 2,228.98 points. On the other hand, in June 1998, the KOSPI 200 had reached its all-time low of 31.96 points; and in April 2007, it had reached its all-time high of 100 points.

    When the Asian economy was recovering from the financial crisis that had started in Thailand, the KOSPI had recorded its largest one-day gain of 8.50% in June 1998. Meanwhile, after the 9/11 tragedy that had shaken the global economy, the KOSPI had recorded its largest one-day decline of 12.02% in September 2001.

    By 2019, Asia is highly expected to account for 26% of the global financial wealth, demonstrating a 2% representation growth in just five years. The best way to bank on that fast-paced growth is to invest on stocks listed on the Stock Market Division of the KRX. Investors which work with Kosdaq Computer Hardware Index hope to find the best quality there.

    On the U.S. economic front, the Institute for Supply Management released a report showing a rebound in the pace of growth in service sector activity in the month of August.

    The ISM said its non-manufacturing index climbed to 55.3 in August after falling to 53.9 in July, with a reading above 50 indicating growth in the service sector. Economists had expected the index to rebound to 55.8.

    A separate report released by the Commerce Department showed the trade deficit came in slightly wider in the month of July.

    The Commerce Department said the trade deficit widened to $43.7 billion in July from a revised $43.5 billion in June. Economists had expected the deficit to widen to $44.6 billion.

    Railroad stocks are showing a substantial move to the upside in morning trading, resulting in a 2.1 percent jump by the Dow Jones Railroads Index. The index has reached its best intraday level in well over a month.

    CSX Corp. ( CSX ) has helped to lead the railroad sector higher after reporting very good progress in transitioning its operating model to precision scheduled railroading.

    Significant strength has also emerged among computer hardware stocks, as reflected by the 2.1 percent spike by the NYSE Arca Computer Hardware Index. With the gain, the index has also reached a one-month intraday high

    Electronics for Imaging (EFII) is posting a standout gain after the digital imaging company said it does not currently expect an accounting review to require a restatement of previously reported financial results.

    Energy stocks are also seeing considerable strength amid an increase by the price of crude oil, while most of the other major sectors are showing more modest moves.

    In overseas trading, stock markets across the Asia-Pacific region moved mostly lower during trading on Wednesday. Japan's Nikkei 225 Index edged down by 0.1 percent, while Hong Kong's Hang Seng Index fell by 0.5 percent.
