Since the advent of Ola and Uber in the Indian startup marketplace, aspiring entrepreneurs have all found technology aggregation attractive to add to their business models and catch investorsattention. But the number of such startups shutting shops suggests that that is not enough. “A number of such startups failed because they did not take a full stack view of the Indian logistics sector. Just adding a thin layer of technology does not solve the deep routed problems such as nonavailability of drivers and fragmented truck ownership. We are very bullish about investing in logistics sector in the future but we’ll look at companies that have a full-stack view before they venture,” Mukul Arora, managing director, SAIF Partners said. The venture capital fund invested in tech-enabled logistics firm Rivigo that raised $30 million from SAIF in a series B round and $75 million in a series C funding led by an affiliate of Warburg Pincus.

Pricing In comparing prices across vendors, the 27UD88 is the model number you'll see most often, and it's LG's consumer offering that comes with a one-year warranty. LG also sells a 27MU88 model for business customers, and that model comes with a three-year warranty and is otherwise identical to the 27UD88, so keep the warranty difference in mind if you're comparing prices across vendors and the two models. The 27UD88 carries a list price of 699, but at the time of this writing supplies are very short with many retailers being completely out of stock, so keep an eye out and be ready to grab one if you're in the market for it. LG tells us the supply shortages are temporary, so availability should improve. Note: LG provided the 27UD88 display to MacRumors free of charge for the purposes of this review. No other compensation was received. Tag: USB-C Discuss this article in our forums

In a recent posting called Liar's 3D Printing , I showed you how you can print with multiple filament colors even if your printer only has one extruder and hot end. It isn't easy, though, and a lot of models you'll find on sites like Thingiverse are way too complicated to give good results. An object with 800 layers, each with two colors is going to take a lot of filament changes and only the most patient among us will tolerate that. What that means is you are likely to want to make your own models. The question is, how? The answer is, of course, lots of different ways. I'm going to cover how I did the two models I showed last time using OpenSCAD (seen below). The software is actually really well suited for this hack, making it easy for me to create a framework of several models to represent the different colors. About OpenSCAD I'm not going to say much about OpenSCAD.

2016 may prove to be one of the most pivotal years in advertising history, and 2017 the most important. We will look back upon transparency issues, data miscalculations, over-the-top video advances, mergers & acquisitions, and economic fluctuations as by-products of a transformational shift in media business models that is being led, somewhat shockingly, by leading media agencies. Based on 18 in-depth conversations I recently video-taped with leaders of these agencies, I believe 2016 may come to be viewed as the year when our industry began its most massive shift in business models since 1877, when a bookkeeper for a small ad agency named J. Walter Thompson acquired the agency, changed its name, began packaging newspaper advertising along with creative services, and negotiated a 15% "agency" commission from the newspapers. By 1889, 80 percent of the advertising in the United States was placed through J.

The history of the Ford Mustang extends more than 50 years, and in that span, a the muscle car’ s legacy has been defined by a number of custom tunes and special edition models. As rich as that history is though, there is one model that trumps them all, largely because Shelby only built one model of it as a prototype. That model was the 1967 Shelby GT500 Super Snake, and to this day, it remains as the most expensive Mustang ever sold when it fetched $1.3 million at a Mecum auction back in 2013. Over the years, Ford has revived the Super Snake name a number of different ways, most recently with the 2015 Shelby Super Snake, a special edition Mustang that was limited to just 300 units. Fast forward to this year and the Super Snake name is making another comeback with the launch of the Shelby Super Snake 50th Anniversary Edition. Yes, the one-and-only original 1967 Shelby GT500 Super Snake is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year and for a car that has turned into arguably the most iconic Mustang in history, a special edition run of 500 units (499 more than the original Super Snake!) is the least Ford can do to commemorate the original Super Snake.

Will Beaumont 20 Jan 2017 To celebrate fifty years of the Super Snake name, Shelby has released an anniversary model of the Ford Mustang. The new supercharged Super Snake will be limited to just 500 models but will be available globally with the package starting at $36,79529,854). The Super Snake name was first applied to a 1967 Shelby GT500 prototype fitted with a 7-litre V8 from the Mk2 GT40, but the project was scrapped when Shelby realised the final car would be too expensive. The name was revived a year later when it appeared in a classified ad for a twin supercharged Cobra Mustang being sold by Shelby. The name didnt appear again until 2007 when Shelby offered a Super Snake upgrade for the GT500 that increased power to either 600bhp or 725bhp. Click here to read our review of the new Ford Mustang The new Super Snake follows a similar principle.

First, we need to ally ourselves with and support Congress members, governors and attorney generals, as well as mayors and other city officials who believe in government of and for all people, not just the super-rich. The campaign to preserve and improve our government programs means developing a list of priorities and identifying champions in the House of Representatives and the Senate who will fight the worst outrageous budget and service cuts and promote compromise on issues where reasonable legislators can agree such as investment in our Infrastructure. It also means encouraging governors and mayors to make their voices heard in protest of bad legislation and in promoting some of their best state and city programs that could be models for other cities, states or the country. National and state nonprofit organizations as well as businesses and labor unions need to overcome their differences and join in a movement to protect our rights and the functioning of our governments.

Now, as of January 10, new reports are corroborating with Kuo's analysis; Digitimes claims to have heard from sources which state that US firm Jabil will supply stainless steel frame components for Apple's 2017 flagship; interestingly, the last time Apple used a stainless steel frame was indeed on the iPhone 4S, which may add further weight to the idea of an iPhone 4S inspired design made mostly from curved glass. This time, the steel frames will be produced differently, instead of being milled by a CNC machine, the 2017 frames will be forged, where the steel is pressed into the desired shape. Stainless steel will potentially make the iPhone 7 more durable than recent aluminium-framed models, but it will also be more expensive to produce, a cost that is sure to be passed on to consumers. However, the forging of stainless steel is cheaper than the CNC milling process, an estimated saving of around 30%-50%.

20/01/2017 - 3:02pm Apples iPhone 8 will get a release date inside Q3 2017... below is ALL the latest iPhone 8 release date, leaks and specs rumours There's still much deliberation, and back-and-forth over precisely how many iPhone 8 models there will be, which ones will have OLED displays, and whether it will be called the iPhone 8, the iPhone 7s, the iPhone X, or something else entirely, but regardless, the rumours and leaks are still corroborating very consistently and firmly that 2017 is the year for a MAJOR design overhaul. Allegedly, this will be the iPhone Jony Ive has always dreamt of making. This year’s iPhone will be a big deal. Apple’s most profitable product is turning 10 years old, so it stands to reason the company will definitely be doing something special. Design will be a key factor, I believe, as will overall performance and usability.

Just like the Tesla Powerwall 2, the Nissan xStorage solves this problem by storing energy when there’s an excess, and then releasing it when the sun is down – effectively levelling things out. How does the Nissan xStorage work? As with the Tesla Powerwall 2, the Nissan xStorage uses lithium-ion batteries to store solar energy in the day to be used at night. The Nissan xStorage also comes in two distinct versions: two “Second Lifemodels that uses reconditioned batteries from old Nissan Leafs, and currently one system that only use new batteries. Interestingly, Nissan says the xStorage also comes with solar inverters already integrated into the home battery. These inverters are bidirectional, which means, in the future, battery would be able to sell energy back to the grid, if the opportunity presented itself. Nissan xStorage: Price The Nissan xStorage is currently available in two forms, a second-life version, and a more expensive, powerful version that uses only brand-new batteries.
