2016 Paris Motor Show: Mercedes Benz to present the new Electric Intelligence (EQ) Generation car.Video.

Note: The name EQ stands for “Electric Intelligence” and is derived from theMercedes-Benz brand values of “Emotion and Intelligence”.

With "Generation EQ", Mercedes-Benz shows how electric cars can soon move into the fast lane: the concept vehicle, with the appearance of a sporty SUV coupé, gives a preview of a new generation of vehicles with battery-electric drives. 
The dynamic exterior design with its new electro-look underlines the focus on the powerful electric drive system. Two electric motors, with a system output that can be increased to up to 300 kW thanks to scalable battery components, and permanent all-wheel drive deliver the guarantee of dynamic high-level performance. With a range of up to 500 kilometres and the typical Mercedes strengths of safety, comfort, functionality and connectivity, "Generation EQ" meets every demand in terms of contemporary, sustainable mobility.

2Q 2016: WorldWide PC Monitor market share: Dell 17%, HP Inc 13%, Lenovo 10% says IDC.

The total worldwide PC monitor market shipped more than 30 million units in the second quarter of 2016 (2Q16), up 4.9% year over year and 4.6% quarter over quarter, according to the International Data Corporation (IDC) Worldwide Quarterly PC Monitor Tracker.
"The second quarter proved better than forecast overall, with the U.S., EMEA, and Canada markets recording solid year-over-year results. However, IDC expects the global monitor market will continue to decline at rates around 3% year over year from 2018 through 2020," said Maura Fitzgerald, senior research analyst, Worldwide Trackers.
IDC currently forecasts 118 million PC monitor units will be shipped for the full year 2016 and expects to see a year-over-year decline of 12.7% in worldwide shipments to 26.7 million units in the second quarter of 2017. By 2020, worldwide shipments are expected to be less than 100 million units as the adoption of mobile devices at lower price points is expected to continue.

Apple increasing 20-30% in part and components orders for the iPhone 7

Apple has increased its part and component orders for iPhone 7 devices, with order visibility for the fourth quarter of 2016 to be 20-30% higher than expected, according to sources from Taiwan-based touch panel makers.
Touch panel makers TPK Holding and General Interface Solution (GIS) shared the touch panel orders for iPhone 7 devices previously, but Apple appeared to have pulled in more orders from GIS recently.
GIS, a subsidiary of Foxconn Electronics, is expected to see its revenues grow significantly in the fourth quarter.
However, TPK said that touch panel orders from its major clients for the fourth quarter have not been fixed completely, and some adjustments may be made later.
Shipments of the iPhone 7 devices from ODMs are expected to reach 80-84 million units in the second half of 2016, compared to 85-90 million iPhone 6s shipped in the latter half of 2015.

SONY CSL-Paris launches world`s first Ai made song with a touch of The Beatles style.

I don`t know when we all the humans will be replaced for robots and Ai machines for certain humans activities.
Not so long ago we use the computer and started to make movies with animations and some games software resembles very close what we do in some way.
By the time being SONY CSL-Paris Research Laboratory has uploaded on youtube a video musical made by Ai with a touch of The Beatles style: Daddy`s Car sounds good and the other video song is called Mr Shadow ( nice try)
Let`s take a look:

Scientists at SONY CSL Research Laboratory have created the first-ever entire songs composed by Artificial Intelligence: "Daddy's Car" and "Mister Shadow".

The researchers have developed FlowMachines, a system that learns music styles from a huge database of songs. Exploiting unique combinations of style transfer, optimization and interaction techniques, FlowMachines composes novel songs in many styles.


Amazing: 6 young inventors built a text-to Braile translator device.

How six scrappy young inventors built a breakthrough text-to-Braille translator deviceA group of engineering students knew exactly what they wanted to build at a student technology competition, and they had just 15 hours to do it.
As they worked furiously alongside other MIT students, the young women hit a series of snags. They had to wait in long lines to use the 3D printer and laser cutter they needed to shape various parts for their project. Some of the supplies their design called for had already been snatched up by others.
Bonnie Wang, an engineering and materials science major, recalls it as “one of the most hectic 15 hours of my life, ever.”
They cobbled together their prototype with barely 15 minutes to spare. It was clunky, with taped corners, an array of wires sprouting from the middle and gaps they’d hastily filled with cardboard — but it worked.
The device will allow people with low or no vision to read everything from textbooks to menus by converting words into Braille on a d…
