Smartwatches, VR headsets and Bluetooth speakers can all take a back seat, wireless in-ear headphones are the latest must-own tech accessory. With smartphones moving away from classic cabled connections, the need to cut the cords is growing. That's where the $199.95 (169.99 / AU$299.95) Sennheiser HD1 In-Ear Wireless headphones come in, as the last pair of audio enablers to tick all the right cable-cutting boxes, with Bluetooth 4.1 and aptX abilities making it easier to shun the traditional 3.5mm audio jack. These are part of a new breed of wireless in-ear headphones, however. Ones untroubled by degraded sound, latency issues and woeful battery life. Theyre also a pair of headphones that are entering an increasingly crowded market, with this neckband style design having been adopted by everyone from Bose and Beats to Samsung and LG.

Apple has just begun accepting orders for the new 9.7-inch iPad and (PRODUCT)RED iPhone 7 and 7 Plus on its online store in the United States and dozens of other countries and regions around the world. The new 9.7-inch iPad is equipped with a faster Apple A9 chip and brighter Retina display compared to the iPad Air 2, which has been discontinued. It is also somewhat thicker and heavier than the iPad Air 2 since it lacks a fully laminated display with anti-reflective coating in order to keep costs down. The tablet's tech specs are otherwise identical to the iPad Air 2, including a display resolution of 2,048‑by‑1,536 at 264 PPI, 8-megapixel rear iSight camera, 1.2-megapixel front FaceTime camera, two speakers, Lightning connector, 3.5mm headphone jack, Touch ID with Apple Pay , and Bluetooth 4.2. The new 9.7-inch iPad starts at 329 for a 32GB model with Wi-Fi, making it the cheapest new tablet that Apple has ever sold.

Marketing tools are essential for streamlining and automating the more arduous aspects of the process. The only issue is that you’ve got to actually learn how to use them. You have to learn their capabilities, their limitations as well as their nuances. It’s no biggie if you’re tech-inclined. But what if you’re not so tech-savvy? Using marketing tools can nearly negate the purpose if it’s a struggle just to figure them out. That's why I compiled a list of 26 marketing tools for non-tech-savvy marketers. Each one is practical and user-friendly and requires a minimal learning curve. Many are even free. Content creation 1. WordPress Let’s start with the absolute basics: WordPress. You could consider it to be the “OG” of content management systems. As of late 2015, it powered 25% of the world’s websites. And it’s very likely that number is even bigger today.

Will robots steal our jobs? Its a question that keeps popping up , and the latest answer from PwC is that almost a third of existing jobs in the UK could be at risk of becoming the domain of robots or AI by the close of the next decade. PwCs report forecasts that 30% of jobs could be at potential risk of automation by the time 2030 rolls around, and that less well-educated workers are facing the highest risks of having their roles given to a robot. Specifically, the employment sectors most likely to be affected are transportation and storage, with 56% of jobs at risk of automation in this area, along with manufacturing (46%), plus retail and wholesale (44%). The good news is that all this new technology driving automation will generate fresh jobs in the digital arena maintenance and so forth and on a broader level, the tech will boost overall wealth and spending.

Thomas McMullan 6 min 38 sec ago Art Douglas Coupland has hit a coffee wall. His dressing room has a spread of tiny sandwiches, but he is too jetlagged to eat or drink. His time is out of whack. Coupland coined the termGeneration X”, with his debut 1991 novel of the same name. In the decades since, he’s written a smorgasbord of novels, short-story collections, nonfiction books, screenplays and columns. He’s also a visual artist, with public works dotted around his hometown of Vancouver . Technology, and technology culture, has been a consistent presence in his work, most obviously in 1995’s Microserfs (which tackles a pre-Windows 95 Microsoft) and 2006’s JPod (which follows a group of six game developers). I meet him in Berlin, where he’s been giving a keynote for the Japanese business-tech company Konica Minolta, talking about the “future of work”.
