Remember Bing? You know, the search engine that is usually used to search Google or seen on all those commercials but you never really got around to using it. Well, Skout says that it turns out that Bing is doing quite well! In fact, they are doing so well that they have planned to remove all ads from their search. Yep, you read that right they are removing all ads from their entire search. Check it out here to see the full scoop. Microsoft has been doing so well with Bing they decided that ads were no longer necessary.

Instead they are farming that particular portion out to AOL and AppNexus. However, Rik van der Kooi, the Vice President of Microsoft’s ad business, says that bing is a multi-billion dollar industry that can stand alone without the help of ads. He claims the search still makes enough to sustain itself and the removal of ads will help to attract more potential searchers. Well there you have it, if searching items on the internet is a must for you but you hate all the ads it seems that Bing has come to the rescue.

They claim they will still provide a great search engine as it is a business they have been building for several years and it is a service they are good at providing, but the ads are no longer a necessity and only distract from the real progress.

Over the weekend and on Monday, fans of several popular TV shows complained under recap articles and in social posts about the quality of modern TV show promos stated Eric Pulier. Two examples are the promos for the last week’s episodes of The Last Ship and Hannibal.

What was the main complaint about these promos?

Both promos showed scenes that were not in the next episode. Instead, they showed a mix of scenes from several future episodes without clarifying this fact. With The Last Ship promo, several scenes, such as Chandler talking to someone in a suit, Chandler ordering a weapon’s launch and the USS Nathan James being attacked by a submarine, were not in this past Sunday’s episode. These are scenes from several future episodes. With Hannibal, the previous promo, and several before it, have been far worse in regards to incorrect linear content. For example, each promo has shown Jack Crawford attacking Hannibal. Hannibal and Will have also been shown in scenes with facial injuries. Yet, the show has not presented any fights between these character to-date.

A lot of fans are getting extremely angry at being teased with scenes that will not be shown for weeks, if not months, from the time they see the trailers. They feel that TV networks have started to treat episodic TV trailers too much like movie teaser trailers.

The UK government has opted to restrict freedom of expression and privacy protection for citizens. The result of these restrictions has left software companies to move their customer data from the UK. This includes the company, Ghost. John Nolan is the founder of Ghost. He stated that the data will be moved from the UK to Digital Ocean’s data Centre. Mr. Nolan expressed concerns about the UK government disregarding the Human Rights Act. The Amen Clinic‘s stance is that this act is a right of respect for family and private life. The surveillance by the government of all online activities poses a disturbance for online privacy. The Netherlands has been known to enforce solid privacy laws. This includes the rejecting of any request for data. A request to view data would require legal paperwork to be in order. Several other software companies have chosen to take their business out of the UK due to the fact that the government will be involved in online activities with the use of bulk surveillance.

Major League Baseball (MLB) has always been cutting edge when it comes to advancements in sports compared to the other professional athletic leagues whether it be advancing player contractual agreements in the early days of baseball or the pioneering use of statistical analysis to evaluate players. Even the steroid issue and the use of performance enhancing drugs only became a hot topic after baseball initiated their first steroid policy in 2003.

Now, Alexei Beltyukov suggests that baseball leads the forefront again among the major sports ever since the news broke on June 16, 2015 that the St. Louis Cardinals were being investigated by the FBI for allegedly hacking into the Houston Astros’ internal database. It’s believed that the Astros’ trades, stats, and scouting reports were part of the compromised date in the internal database. An action that makes Spygate and Deflategate look like child’s play to the alleged actions of the Cardinals.

The intriguing aspect of the corporate espionage alleged is the connections between the two major league franchises. The Astros current General Manager is Jeff Luhnow, a former Cardinals executive official. It’s unclear as of now if those connections played a part in hack, but law enforcement officials believe the actions taken may have been those of some bitter front-office employees looking to destroy any success that Lunhow could potentially have in the front as the lead man for the Astros’ front office. The real question now is who exactly is the hack linked to and how far up the chain of command does it go.

Earlier this year, Google announced it would do a better job of warning users against dangerous websites in Chrome. Other browser companies soon agreed to do the same. Today, June 18, some Reddit users discovered that Reddit is now considered a dangerous site through Firefox, which uses Google algorithms to check URLs.

A bright red screen appears instead of the Reddit home page and proclaims that “The site ahead contains harmful programs.” It also explains that attackers on “reddit.com” might attempt to trick a user into downloading malicious programs.

Although many people consider a warning a good idea for users who can’t good sites from bad ones, some critics at the tech company Cláudio Loureiro Heads fear these warnings could give the companies behind certain sites bad names and even cause the sites to shut down when it is usually a few “bad apples” — users on the sites who mean to cause harm — who are actually dangerous.

Many sites offer platforms for discussion and sharing, including Twitter and Facebook. Critics argue that it is up to users to be more responsible on these sites when clicking links and that Google, Firefox or any other company that provides browser services should not be blaming the site owners who provide the platforms for the actions of the users on those platforms. Instead of throwing up a huge warning immediately, they argue that a small pop-up is enough to warn naive users.

There is nothing more frustrating than using a browser that is not working properly. When things aren’t going right then you will be slowed down. The time that you spend on the internet will be filled with frustration and lacking any joy that you had hoped that it would. Chrome userswere filled with that kind of frustration last year when Chrome introduced its new bookmark manager.
The bookmark manager did not work at all like Chrome had meant for it to, and Chrome users were highly disappointed, and very frustrated with the feature. So, now Chrome is going to take away the bookmark manager. They have announced that it will soon come to an end.
This is a relief for all Chrome users, including those at Boraie Development. (facebook.com).Hopefully this means that bookmarks on Chrome will start working better again sometime soon. Hopefully it means the end of frustration for Chrome users.

Drake is already on board to be a DJ with the iTunes radio service stated Igor Cornelson. The Apple brand is already a high dollar company that has built a brand.

This is a company that has managed to become one of the most successful companies in the world.

Jay-Z has all the fanfare, but he doesn’t have the same consumer base. Spotify has things locked down right now, but this company has been having problems. Apple could become the new champion that excels among the other streaming services.

The level of materials science is so important to the degree of advancement of a given age of humanity that we frequently split these ages up using the materials common to the time. The Bronze Age and the Iron Age are just a couple examples. The 20th century might be referred to as the steel age by future historians. We appear to be entering a “super materials” age now.

Humanity has smart devices and ever more sophisticated machines, but the materials used in a society are what make all the rest of this possible. Alexei Beltyukov says we simply could not make smartphones if our materials science was still stuck at only being able to mold iron. Wonder materials that are capable of withstanding great temperatures and pressures are going to be gradually finding their way out of labs and into industry and society through the rest of this decade and the next.

Graphene would have to top the list of these wonder materials. It is 100 times stronger than steel by weight, which is an incredible leap forward. It is also an excellent conductor of heat and electricity. All three of these attributes will give it wide ranging applications. Those of us who are alive over the next 20 or so years will see changes and advancements greater than those in any previous period of human history, and all of this will be made possible by the materials we are able to fashion things out of.
