9%, while Idea posted its first ever loss since listing in 2007. “One would have expected different kinds of offers (for example bundling with other Reliance Jio products) or some sort of guarantee in service experience. However, that’s not the case so far. This means the market will continue to fight on price as compared to quality, at least in near future,” said Nandan. Ambani noted that there were lakhs of subscribers who had switched loyalties and ported their numbers to the Reliance Jio network. PRICE POINT TO COMPETE To be sure, the introduction of a subscription fee is still a relief to the incumbent companies that now have a tangible price point around which to build their service packages unlike in the past where, as analysts said, they were practically shooting in the dark. Rajan S Mathews, director general, Cellular Operators Association of India, said paid services would mean that “consumer choice and preferences will now be revealed in the marketplace.

But while the Article 29 Working Party (a group of 28 EU authorities which uphold data protection laws) acknowledged Microsofts willingness to cooperate in this respect, it still wasnt satisfied with the overall privacy position regarding Windows 10. As Reuters reports, the authorities still feel that Microsoft isnt making it clear enough to users what data will be collected if these options remain switched on. Informed consent The EU organization issued a statement to say that even considering the proposed changes to Windows 10, the Working Party remains concerned about the level of protection of users personal data. And it further added: Microsoft should clearly explain what kinds of personal data [is] processed for what purposes. Without such information, consent cannot be informed, and therefore, not valid.

Critics believe that Trump will demand such strict standards, requiring for instance, the cooperation of hostile governments such as Iran’s, to help vet travelers, that the pauses could be permanent. Trump has said in interviews that he wants religious minorities overseasspecifically Christians — to have preference in admission to the United States. He also said during his campaign for president that the U.S. should, on national security grounds, bar all Muslims from entry, a position he later switched to what he calledextreme vetting.” Advocates for refugees and immigrants say current vetting procedures are already extremely strict, with permission to enter the United States sometimes taking years to obtain. The federal lawsuits against the Trump administration have used his public statements as evidence that he is trying to impose a religious test for U.S. entry.

While flying from Bratislava to Prague, 9W 118 was on correct frequency as it transmitted and acknowledged messages from the ATC. After that, the crew allegedly switched over to 132.980MHz and did not monitor the emergency frequency. When it got incommunicado while over Czech Republic and about to enter Germany, the Prague ATC spotted that 9W 122 (Delhi-London) was ahead of the flight from Mumbai. Prague then asked the Rhein ATC (in Germany) to contact the flight from Delhi. (These London-bound planes from India were flying over Czech Republic, among other countries in EU, before entering Germany and then Belgium/Netherland on their way to UK). The Rhein ATC then used ACARS to get in touch with the flight from Delhi. By this time fighter jets had been scrambled for 9W 118. Finally by the time the flight from Mumbai contacted the ATC, it had entered German airspace and contacted Rhein ATC.

NEW DELHI: About 40% of the total voice calls will be riding on Voice over LTE (VoLTE) technology by 2020, though traditional voice service through circuit switched technology will remain relevant and dominate the local market, Aircel chief technology officer Sameer Dave said. He said in the next three to four years there will be a large number of VoLTE handsets, along with large 4G sites, that will make VoLTE more popular. “The trend is starting… now customers are getting a bundled package where voice will be free. As voice will be free, all the VoLTE handsets will start consuming more data, whether you’re using a voice call or a data call,” Dave said. And as VoLTE handsets and data become cheaper, the consumption of video will go up, he said. Telecom operators in India have started integrating VoLTE technology with their systems but it is yet to become the mainstay.

The First Lady usually sat in an open cabin in the middle of the plane, and we would gather there for staff briefings, to discuss a recent stop, surprise somebody with a celebration, or just chat. The Military Made Us Feel at Home Regardless of what plane Mrs. Obama was on or where she was going, the plane itself was referred to as “Bright Star,” in the same way any plane the President is flying on is called Air Force One. It’s flown by the Air Force and the hard-working crew are all active duty. But despite the pilots and flight attendants being the best in the world at what they do, they werent intimidating at all. In fact, it was quite the opposite. It was always nice to board the plane and see their warm, kind, familiar faces. When there were special occasions like birthdays or final flights for Secret Service Agents (before they switched to a different assignment), members of the crew with a knack for baking would surprise us all with a cake mid-flight.

Stuart Gallagher 17 Feb 2017 £44,415 Audi’s A4 underwent a considerable transformation at the end of 2016, when under the control of Ulrich Hackenberg the mid-sized saloon and Avant estate model had as much focus put on their dynamics as they did on interior design, technology and quality. The result was a lighter, stiffer, better balanced and more focused chassis that has transformed the regular cars and promises the same with the new S models and the forthcoming RS4. For the S4 focus also turned to its drivetrain, with the outgoing car’s supercharged V6 replaced by a new turbocharged unit and the S Tronic gearbox switched for a Tiptronic unit. The quattro four-wheel drive system was also reconfigured. Read our review of the previous Audi RS4 here Unlike Audi ’s hard core RS models, the S range has always been the under the radar choice, offering more attitude than BMW’s M Sport models but without the aggressive overtones of the Mercedes-AMG C43 variants.

There's no clicking the 'i' button in the EPG anymore, either. Just slide (or click) to the episode you want and all its information is displayed at the top of the EPG grid. The live picture has switched from the top right corner, to the middle of the left panel. This is a sound move, as it means you have around four fifths of the display dedicated to the EPG. The menu system will be familiar with anyone who has used Sky. There's sections for movies, sport, the Sky Store, kids and music. Music includes content from video-streaming site Vevo. A new section is Sky Boxsets. Again, Sky is blurring the line between on-demand content and live programming and boxsets offers a whole host of television shows ready to be watched. Giving boxsets their own section makes them easier to find - this is a theme that's consistent with the new Sky setup - it constantly tries to offer up new content for you to watch.

PUTRAJAYA: Malaysia Airlines (MAS) Flight MH179 en route to Colombo made a turn back to Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) due to technical problems. Malaysia Airlines said the aircraft, which departed from KLIA at 10.10pm yesterday, was forced to turn back when its auxiliary power unit (APU) was unable to start. "The aircraft landed uneventfully at 1.50am today," it said in a statement. The APU is a backup power unit that is required to be switched on when an aircraft crosses over water. Malaysia Airlines said due to closure of Bandaranaike International Airport for scheduled maintenance at the runway, an immediate retiming was not possible, hence passengers were accommodated at nearby hotels. It said the flight would now operate as MH179D and depart KLIA at 3:30pm and arrive in Colombo at 4:35pm (local time), today. Malaysia Airlines said the return leg MH178D was retimed to depart Colombo at 5:10pm (local time) the same day and arrive in Kuala Lumpur at 11:20pm.

T. Cross Co., based in Providence, Rhode Island. “My guess is he’s running low.” Presidents since Ford wielded Cross pens Cross pens have been supplied to presidents at least since the Gerald Ford administration, said Boss, whose grandfather bought the writing instruments manufacturer a century ago. The company, sold to a private equity firm in 2013, was once a major Rhode Island employer but now makes most of its pens in China. It still tries to put an American imprint on the presidential pens, which are lacquered and engraved in China but go through their final assembly in Rhode Island using a mix of domestic and foreign parts. President Barack Obama used the company’s pricier Townsend model to sign the Affordable Care Act in 2010 but later switched to the slimmer Century II, the same felt-tipped model wielded by Trump when he signed an action last month expressing his intent to repeal Obama’s health care law.
