The divestment, which is a sure sign of Gaumont's strategy to refocus on production activities, will see Pathé control France's biggest cinema chain. Gaumont has partnered with Pathé in the exhibition business for the past 16 years, operating not just in France but also Belgium...

Its easy for us hyper-connected geeks in our tech-savvy filter bubbles to believe that everyone understands smartphone specs and cares about them as much as we do. After the Nokia news from MWC, other Android manufacturers must be kicking themselves: all this time, they assumed people craved bigger screens, better cameras, more power but it turns out all we wanted is a bombproof exterior and a vague feeling of nostalgic joy.

Star Wars figurines, rubber ducks and Thomas the Tank Engine trains might come from different fantasy worlds, but they all have one thing in common: they were once made in Hong Kong. Hong Kong Museum of Historys three-month exhibition titled The Legend of Hong Kong Toys will open on Thursday (March 2), featuring over 2,000 playthings from the last century, with origins that can be traced back to the city. Hong Kong, once the biggest toy maker in the world, now manages the...

I accept the responsibility and will ensure that it is done," he told Bernama. Isahak said the contractor for the road upgrading project have shown their commitment to clean-up the area before the international event starts. "Following the many complaints received, we have given them until Friday to improve the road condition (Jalan Pantai Cenang)." Work on one lane of the road which serves as an alternative route to Jalan Pantai Cenang would be completed before Lima '17 starts and thus reduce traffic congestion in the area.

3D Print.com From February 15 to 18, the 9th International Exhibition of Gold, Silver, Jewelry, Watch and Related Industries (Iran Gold Expo 2017, for short) took place in Tehran. The jewelry industry is one that many people think of as fairly unchanging, and that’s been the case for a long time – it’s ancient craft that has been around for thousands of years. In the nine years since the Iran Gold Expo began, however, a lot has changed in the world of jewelry – in fact, a lot has changed in just the last couple of years. Traditional methods of fabricating jewelry have been around so long for good reason – they’re effective, and in the right hands (and for the right price) they can produce beautiful, high-quality pieces that can last for decades if not centuries. I dont expect that the older methods of jewelry-making will ever disappear entirely, but 3D printing has certainly made a lot of headway in the jewelry industry recently, and that’s a trend that’s not likely to disappear.

It's going to make the VR experience more enjoyable. The fact that the newer Google Daydream View has a remote only increased fan pressure of Samsung to release its own one-handed controller. It's here now, and we've played around with it. Its success or failure is going to come down to a few factors, including how many games new and old take full advantage of the motion sensors, and how the battery life holds up. Its a bit surprising that Oculus went with two AA batteries, not USB-C like the Daydream. Were bound to hear more about the Samsung Gear VR Controller and the slightly refined Gear VR headset at Samsung Unpacked on March 29. Thats when we also expect to see the Samsung Galaxy S8 launch, so hopefully we'll see a price and release date for both. MWC (Mobile World Congress) is the world's largest exhibition for the mobile industry, stuffed full of the newest phones, tablets, wearables and more.

AMC Entertainment says today that it had a couple of firsts in 2016, the period when it became the world's largest exhibition chain with acquisitions of Carmike Cinemas and Odeon and UCI Cinemas: It was the first year in which AMC's admissions revenues topped $2 billion, and concession sales exceeded $1 billion. But most of the Q4 numbers were pretty much in line with Wall Street expectations. Net income fell 20.1% to $33.3 million, with $22.8 million of merger and...
