How's that 3D TV going? What's that? You only own two 3D films? The glasses got stood on? The manufacturer's exclusive content hub is generating nothing but 2D server errors? You forgot it even was 3D? That's the price the modern tech fan pays for buying things first nowadays they're also the first to be left owning something unsupported and obsolete. A few years ago, being an early adopter was a simple proposition: you paid the full RRP or maybe even a bit more to have something on day one, then had a lifetime with a usable product. You got it first. You were the best. The everyday man followed your lead and everyone owned things until they wore out. But now, buying something new is like taking a weird gamble on the product stock market. Will the maker still be in business this time next year? Will you have to pay a monthly fee to make it work next year? Will the entire product category head for the bin? Is what you're buying today, in the heat of the post-announcement pre-ordering process, going to be the next Google Glass ? This last few weeks alone we've seen the end of 3D as a home TV selling point , as the 2017 models announced by the big makers at CES left out all mention of the format that was once, about four years ago, supposed to be the next big thing in home cinema, plus Google is now discounting its Daydream VR headset presumably due to mounting buyer disinterest in VR already.

5% I admit this doesnt sound like a sane choice – a Bulgarian pinot noir? However, it exudes gentleness and elegant fruit. Strangely, this pinot noir is reminiscent of Château Rayas, the most refined and exotic Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Some may find it too delicate at first, but give it an hour or so to breathe, and you will be amazed at its complexity and sophistication. A steal at the price. The Week Wines price: £114.00, usually £150.00. Click here to order Papegaai, Swartland 2016 13% Adi Badenhorst is one of the most charismatic wine-makers in Swartland, and this wine is named after the Cape Parrot (Papegaai) – an endangered species that Adi is trying to rescue. The mixture of grapes here makes this sound like the most cosmopolitan wine imaginable: chenin, chardonnay and viognier. However, it is packed with luscious fruit with just a shimmer of acid at the very end, which enhances the experience.

KOLKATA: Eleven solar panel manufacturers in export oriented zones are on the verge of shutting down and another four have already downed shutters saying the import duty structure has rendered them uncompetitive in the local and export markets. “If export oriented units sell their panels in the domestic market, they become un-exempt from duty exemption while their counterparts from Special Economic Zones and Domestic Tariff Areas' remains exempt from such duties.This has resulted in a large number of units in export oriented units on the verge of closing down their operations while some has already been shut because they have been rendered uncompetitive,“ said Subrata Mukherjee, director at Sova Power and founding member of the All India EoU Solar Manufacturers. “There are around 46 solar panel manufacturers in India of which 11 are in export oriented units and they are the ones not being able to compete with their counterparts in other zones.

Instead of completing a bunch of additional steps, customers will scroll through their apps and click on the business that they wanted to find. Due to downloading crucial data before it is used, apps increase user experience and provide a direct link to your content. No worrying about your search ranking, no hassle of trying to get good service. One click, done. 2017 will result in more businesses using the best app makers to rival websites. Social Selling/Relationship Media The last major marketing trend of 2017 does not focus on new technology, but rather a refinement on something we already have, social media. Most businesses have treated their social media accounts as a free way to advertise to potential customers. Advertising Age seems to believe that this doesnt work nearly as well as anticipated. In a similar vein as content marketing, consumers are too perceptive when it comes to a company trying to sell a product.

It has been downloaded more than 50 million times. [JOOX app downloads and top 3 music apps in key Asian markets./ Source: McKinsey] In fact, overseas players such as Apple and Spotify are in an unfavorable situation in the Asian market. According to McKinsey analysis, Asian market has relatively high content costs and low advertising prices. Besides, consumers in Asia are less likely to be willing to pay for subscriptions. Prevalence of software piracy is also a factor pushing suppliers to lower subscription fees. As a result, Tencent's music streaming business is not yet profitable. Instead, it is raising revenues by selling ads to global brands like Adidas, Dior, Chanel, and handset makers like Samsung Electronics and Oppo. Another beneficial factor for Tencent is that most of its users are young people. It's because mobile operators are accelerating investment in large-scale infrastructure as the number of smartphone users is rising rapidly.

Take a look at the colour options for the new Ford GT Losers in the colour chart are brown, which slipped 40.1% to ninth overall, and silver with a sales down to 273,220 compared to its peak of 843,870 in 2004. Jane E Harrington, Colour Styling Manager of paint manufacturer PPG said: ‘Colour choices naturally change over time, though conservative shades such as silver, black and white tend to dominate. The important thing is for car makers to be responsive to the tastes of buyers as they come into the market and shift between vehicles types as they have families, buy a second car or want something more personal to them.’ Alisdair Suttie

Here's what Ziehl suggests, "Focus on what you can change and how you can resist. We are all called to be leaders now, in the absence of leadership." I believe that is what Mende myth makers were suggesting by narrating this dark myth. Unfortunately Little Moses was exactly who they did get in the civil war which soon followed my own fieldwork in Sierra Leone : murderous bands of children, incited by local warlords, burning, mutilating and pillaging their natal villages. Just for the hell of it. And now we (and the world) have a President with NPD who wants to strengthen and expand our nuclear arsenal.

Android One is an ambitious smartphone initiative launched by Google in 2014 . To date, it's been limited to a handful of countries - mostly in Asia - and it remains at best unclear if it's actually been successful. The idea was nice enough: Inexpensive Android phones built by typical handset-makers, but with Google lending a helping hand on the messy business of software updates. Of course, the carrot also came with a stick. Read More Does Android One have any chance at success in the United States? was written by the awesome team at Android Police .

Good judgment seeks balance and progress; lack of it eventually finds imbalance and frustration. The record of many long years stands as proof that our people and their government have, in the main, understood these truths and have responded to them well, in the face of threat and stress. But threats, new in kind or degree, constantly arise. Of these, I mention two only. A vital element in keeping the peace is our military establishment. Our arms must be mighty, ready for instant action, so that no potential aggressor may be tempted to risk his own destruction. Our military organization today bears little resemblance to that known by any of my predecessors in peacetime, or indeed by the fighting men of World War II or Korea. Until the latest of our world conflicts, the United States had no armaments industry. American makers of plowshares could, with time and as required, make swords as well.
