Google lost to Microsoft in Nokia race

first_img Google lost to Microsoft in Nokia race whatsapp Tags: NULL GOOGLE chief executive Eric Schmidt has revealed his firm was in “advanced” talks to provide its Android operating system for Nokia handsets before the Finnish handset maker signed an agreement with Microsoft.Schmidt said Google “would have loved it if they had chosen us over the other guys. We certainly tried.”Nokia instead chose to work with Microsoft, and will use its Windows Phone 7 platform on its handsets from later this year.Android is the fastest growing mobile platform, overtaking Nokia’s soon-to-be retired Symbian, with 3,000 activations every day.Schmidt used his Mobile World Congress Keynote to offer an olive branch to network operators, who say companies like Google put pressure on their networks through services such as YouTube without paying for the burden.He acknowledged that the investment cost to operators is “very high”, with demand for network space growing faster than wireless capacity.He said Google is looking at sharing search revenue on mobile devices but added that governments should play a part in better managing mobile spectrum.Schmidt also did not rule out a sensational $10bn (£6.23bn) bid for microblogging site Twitter.NEW PRODUCT LAUNCHESHTC FLYERJust when it looked like Steve Jobs had killed the stylus, HTC has boldly brought it back with its new tablet. While day-to-day navigation on the seven inch Android device is still done with your fingers, you can write and draw on to the Flyer with a stylus. It looks slick and smacks of quality, but expect to pay high-end rates.HP TOUCHPADHP’s first foray into the tablet market is a solid enough effort. Size-wise the TouchPad comes in almost exactly between the Galaxy Tab and the iPad – its two toughest competitors. It is the first tablet to run WebOS, albeit a customised version of the software, and multi-tasking is brought to the forefront. It’s an attractive enough device but no iPad beater. whatsapp Tuesday 15 February 2011 8:20 pm KCS-content Read This Next’The View’: Meghan McCain Calls VP Kamala Harris a ‘Moron’ for BorderThe Wrap4 ideal Zion Williamson trade scenarios from the New Orleans PelicansSportsnautRicky Schroder Calls Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl ‘Ignorant Punk’ forThe WrapRick Leventhal to Exit Fox News Just as His Wife Kelly Leaves ‘RealThe WrapNewsmax Rejected Matt Gaetz When Congressman ‘Reached Out’ for a JobThe Wrap’In the Heights’ Underwhelms at Box Office With $11.4 Million DebutThe WrapJason Whitlock, Former ESPN and Fox Sports Reporter, Resurfaces at BlazeThe WrapFox News’ Mark Levin Says Capitol Riot Suspects ‘Would Be Treated Better’The Wrap’Sex and the City’ Sequel Series at HBO Max Adds 4 More ReturningThe Wrap Show Comments ▼ Sharelast_img read more

House in Santa Cruz is part of a project from the early 80s of six semi-detached houses. It has the particularity of being the corner house which gives it greater autonomy and allowed us to take a more independent approach as well.Save this picture!© Francisco NogueiraThe proposal changed the Client’s initial program, which was practically faithful to the existing building. The new program is based on a house full of natural light, with a greater relation between the floors, as well as a stronger interior/exterior connection.Save this picture!© Francisco NogueiraThe living room was opened to the kitchen and have a small toilet to give support. A straight staircase was created to link all floors and also turn them to the outside. The staircase was designed as a void and excavation/subtraction of the pre-existence building in order to reach the terrace, previously unused. By this way, the staircase becomes a “patio” and the bedrooms, that previously had windows only in the main facades, started to have a deeper relation with the skylight.Save this picture!© Francisco NogueiraThe previously unused roof, became a large open rooftop with direct visual relations to the surrounding urban landscape.Save this picture!© Francisco NogueiraThe materials, wood and brass, were an immediate choice, due to the fact that these materials are associated with nautical and maritime environments. In this way, materials could be reinterpreted in a more delicate and contemporary design way.Save this picture!© Francisco NogueiraSave this picture!Roof PlanSave this picture!© Francisco NogueiraOutside, the proposal aims to highlight and divide the building volume in two uses: the housing program and the street-level parking program. The hole basement of the building can be recognized by the use of a heavier and darker materiality, as the upper volume, more private, becomes lighter and delicate, as if it floats, in which the white color dominates. Save this picture!© Francisco NogueiraSave this picture!© Francisco NogueiraProject gallerySee allShow lessUsing Furniture to Create a Seamless Flow Between Indoor and Outdoor SpacesArticlesBrick Cave / H&P ArchitectsSelected Projects Share Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project last_img read more

Brigade defies U.S. travel ban on Cuba

first_imgWW photo: WW Buffalo staffBuffalo, N.Y. — Twenty-two courageous U.S. citizens, members of the 45th Venceremos Brigade, crossed the Peace Bridge from Erie, Ontario, Canada, into Buffalo, N.Y., on Aug. 3, proudly declaring that they had defied their own government’s ban on travel to Cuba. Along with groups of supporters, they held demonstrations on both sides of the border, confronted U.S. customs ­officials and asserted the importance of challenging the decades-old U.S. blockade of Cuba.The Venceremos Brigade is a U.S.-based anti-imperialist educational work project that organizes travel to Cuba annually, breaking the travel ban to stand in solidarity with Cuba and allowing thousands of U.S. citizens the opportunity to see Cuba for themselves.The Brigade was welcomed to Cuba this year by Fernando González, who, along with Gerardo Hernández, Ramón Labañino, Antonio Guerrero and René González, was arrested in 1998 in the U.S. All five were given harsh and unfair sentences for monitoring Miami-based terrorist groups operating against Cuba. They are known as the Cuban Five. René González and Fernando González are back in Cuba after serving their full prison sentences, and both of them are fighting for the return of their other three comrades to their families in Cuba.As the brigadistas marched back into the U.S. with fists and voices raised, they chanted over and over, “It’s time to end the damn travel ban!” The solidarity rally that greeted them picked up the chant, holding banners that demanded, “End the blockade against Cuba!” and “Free the Cuban 5!”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Nearly 200 possibly exposed to coronavirus at service that violated stay-at-home orders

first_imgrclassenlayouts/iStockBy MEREDITH DELISO, ABC News(LOS ANGELES) — California public health officials have notified more than 180 people that they may have been exposed to the coronavirus at a religious service held in violation of the state’s stay-at-home order.The Butte County public health department said Friday that an attendee at the service tested positive for the virus a day after the event. Department officials said they have instructed the 180-plus people who attended the May 10 service to self-quarantine. Officials were also working to get them tested.The person who tested positive is now in home isolation, officials said.Public gatherings of any size are not allowed under Gov. Gavin Newsom’s stay-at-home order. On May 9, Butte County moved into Stage 2 of the state’s four-part reopening plan, which still does not allow for public gatherings.The health department urged residents to “do our part to follow the orders.”“At this time, organizations that hold in-person services or gatherings are putting the health and safety of their congregations, the general public and our local ability to open up at great risk,” Butte County Public Health Director Danette York said in a statement. “Moving too quickly through the reopening process can cause a major setback and could require us to revert back to more restrictive measures. We implore everyone to follow the state order and our reopening plan to help combat the potential spread of COVID-19.”The department did not reveal where the service was held.Earlier this month, the Pasadena public health department announced that a cluster of COVID-19 cases were traced to a birthday party in the Southern California city. The party was also held after the state’s stay-at-home order went into effect.California has 78,839 confirmed COVID-19 cases and 3,261 deaths, according to the latest data from the state.
