In 2014, Apple introduced the world two new smartphones - iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Both of these mobile devices have become completely new to the "apple" corporation, because they were installed 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch screens respectively, whereas before that Apple produced only 3.5 and 4-inch mobile devices, which were convenient to use with one hand. Until now, all smartphones of the "apple" corporation, except for the iPhone X, are equipped with large displays, as a result of which it is extremely difficult to use phones with one hand.
If we talk about the iPhone 7 Plus or iPhone 8 Plus, then using these mobile devices with one hand is incredibly difficult even for a person with long fingers. In other cases, it is simply impossible to do this, since the phone now and then falls out of hand. Nombiss has found a solution to the problem - it has released the most necessary accessory for all generations of the iPhone. Novelty is an innovative protective glass. Now very many owners of iPhone 6, iPhone 6s, iPhone 7, iPhone 8 and their Plus-versions have to constantly intercept the mobile device in order to click on the button "Back" or "Refresh". This is not only inconvenient, but also dangerous for a smartphone, because at the moment of "interception" the phone can fall out of hand. Innovative protective glass company Nombiss called Intelli + marks the role of the most necessary accessory for all smartphones Apple. Externally, the Intelli + glass looks exactly like any other, but there are special connection pins on its sides that allow you to add additional buttons in all modern iPhone - "Back" and "Refresh", which are not accessed at the top of the phone, and right next to the "Home" button with a fingerprint reader built into it. Due to this protective glass, to the left and to the right of the "Home" button there are additional touch zones, after clicking on which the emulation of pressing occurs in the upper left and right corners of the phone. Equally important, the Canadian manufacturer estimates its invention at just $ 14. Nevertheless, when the Intelli + glass goes on sale, it will cost $ 49. To save money on the purchase it is already necessary to place an order for it within the framework of the Kickstarter site. Mass production of the most necessary accessory for all generations of iPhone will begin in the very near future, and the first buyers will be able to get it into their hands already in early 2018. A new Canadian development is designed to greatly simplify the use of mobile devices from Apple, equipped with screens with a large diagonal. Taken with

One of the newspapers that published several of these articles is Newsquest. Director of Development of the publication Toby Granville said that these stories are well diverged online and are quite suitable for citing in social networks. In total, 20 such articles were published as part of the pilot launch of the project. The project began work in late November on the initiative of the British news agency Press Association and the startup Google - Urbs Media. The agency won a Google grant for this project amounting to 706 thousand euros. For today RADAR uses already 35 regional publications. Developers plan to expand the audience and argue that the capacity of the service can reach up to 30 thousand stories a month. Recall, in early 2017 it became known that the Chinese robot journalist Xiao Nan, developed by a team of scientists from Beijing University, wrote his first material. The text consisted of 300 characters and was devoted to the reloading of transport due to the celebration of the New Year. The robot wrote the text in one second.

A few years ago, Xiaomi created the crowd-hosting platform MIJIA, which became for it a kind of testing ground for various experiments. It is through her that the huge assistant of various devices for the "smart" house, the electric scooter M365, and also hundreds of other equally interesting devices appeared.
Today, the Chinese corporation introduced to the public a new product called Vima Smart Lock Cylinder, which prevents the robbery of an apartment or house. The engineers of the Chinese corporation managed to create the world's first innovative smart lock, which differs from the usual door "larva" in that it has a special cylinder at the rear. It has a unique 128-bit chip, which is responsible for identifying the key. The whole point of the Vima Smart Lock Cylinder device boils down to the fact that when the door is opened with a key, this gadget verifies its authenticity. So, in particular, if suddenly the Vima Smart Lock Cylinder lock is opened with the help of skeleton keys or something else, as a result of which the special chip can not read the unique identifier of the original key, then the alarm will trigger. The further development of the event will depend on what actions the owner of the castle has set up for this event. He can receive a notification on the phone that someone has opened or trying to open the door of his house (apartment), or immediately turn on a loud alarm to frighten the thief and discourage him from the desire to go back. In this case, the lock is opened with the help of a real physical key, in which a unique identifier is embedded, confirming its originality. The Vima Smart Lock Cylinder comes with five keys, all of which can be programmed to work with a lock through the proprietary Mi Home application, available for Android and iOS devices. If the key owner loses the key, it can be removed from the system to prevent unauthorized access. A special cylinder with a built-in 128-bit chip for identification works from its own power source, which needs to be changed every few months (2 times a year), but even if it suddenly sits, the door can still be opened without any problems, any problems.
Buy a new product from the company Xiaomi to prevent the robbery of an apartment or house will be available from January 24, 2018 in China. For one lock Vima Smart Lock Cylinder, which includes five keys, will have to pay 399 yuan or $ 60. The choice of buyers is available in several sizes of a smart lock for installation in the keyhole - 55, 65, 74 and 90 mm. Xiaomi promises that if this product will be very popular, then in the future it will focus on creating its improved versions. Taken with

Typically, when some analytical companies share information about the success of certain companies in terms of sales, they are betting on the total number of mobile devices, rather than on specific models.
Analysts from Counterpoint decided to act in a different way, denoting the general demand for specific smartphone models in the world, thanks to which already everyone can learn about which mobile devices were most in demand among buyers in October 2017.
It should be understood that although the data were relevant for October, they are the freshest, since analysts take weeks of labor, and sometimes months, to process sales information. According to the source, the world's best-selling smartphone in October 2017 was the iPhone 8, which accounted for 4.6% of all global sales. Next to him, in second place on demand, is the iPhone 8 Plus with a rate of 4%. The third line is Samsung Galaxy Note 8, which accounted for 2.4% of global sales. On the fourth position was Samsung Galaxy S8 + (1.5%), the fifth - iPhone 6 (1.2%), the sixth - iPhone 7 (1.2%), the seventh - Vivo X20 (1.2%), on the eighth - Samsung Galaxy S8 (1.2%), on the ninth - Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 (1.1%), and on the tenth - Oppo R11 with the index of 1.1%. As you can easily see, the greatest interest is shown to Apple products, while the demand for Samsung smartphones is about half that.
Unfortunately, there is no data on sales of the iPhone X yet, but the figures should be incredibly high, since for almost a whole month this smartphone, being the most expensive in the world, was in short supply in all regions.
The funny thing is that even the "old" iPhone 6 and iPhone 7 are in greater demand than the classic Samsung Galaxy S8, released this year. This suggests that most of the buyers prefer to buy Apple hardware, let it be far from the most modern. Taken with

In 2014, Mikhail Shlyapnikov, a farmer from the village of Kolonovo, created his own paper currency, colony, to settle with his neighbors. The initiative ended with a loud judicial case with the authorities, which was written by many media outlets. However, the idea of using his own money as a means of settlement and investment did not leave him. In 2017, the farmer successfully conducted the ICO, now uses the colony crypto currency as a financial tool for business development, writes
Interesting experience, advice to entrepreneurs who are thinking over the use of blocking technology Michael Shlyapnikov shared in an interview with Pro Business on the eve of the conference on finance and investment Capital Day 2017.
Such a traditional sphere as agriculture - and suddenly the release of its own crypto currency. How did it all start?
- I have been engaged in farming for more than 10 years and have long understood that the state farm and collective farm methods no longer work. And the new ones have not started yet. And we had to look for some new model of management, somewhere in the middle.
Everything rested on problems that are approximately the same in Belarus, as in Russia: lack of working capital, problems with product safety, elimination of unnecessary intermediaries between production and consumers.
So we had to print paper money in 2014 - a local currency, which was used for settlements with neighbors and fellow villagers. We called her colyon. From that moment it all began.
Everyone already knows this story: the prosecutor's office, the state was initiated. There were 6-8 court sessions, it was banned.
And at that moment I heard about the system of blockade, and about bitcoin.
What happened next? How did you decide to launch ICO?
Then there was no such excitement with the ICO. Engaged in this mostly freaks, trade was for bitcoins. A year ago, in December 2016 we raised New Year trees and said that we will try to sell them for bitcoins. I was interested to know how everything is arranged - how to get this crypto currency, how to calculate. This involved a person 15-20. As a result, I realized how it works, and people were drawn, they also became interested.
Naturally, a situation arose: why only bitcoins? I began to delve into it and it turned out that this is just ours, the local currency can somehow correlate with the crypto-currencies. And this year - in February-March, we began to think about how to hold our ICO. There were no accelerators, no assistants, no experts. I had to learn the topic myself. And on April 1, 2017 we offered colony in a public online space.
On April 1, they launched ICO, and the second day they forgot about it, because the sowing campaign started. And remembered about the ICO in just two weeks. And there already without our participation everything went - people began to send bitcoins, ethers, other crypto-currencies.
The fundraising campaign began to grow at such an alarming rate that on April 30 we had to stop collecting investments in order to understand what to do next.
As a result, an amount of 401 bitcoins was collected. And we sat for a week and thought about what we had done.
Honestly, there was still no understanding, there was no excitement yet. We were the first to come to this kitchen. Of course, we also "printed" - issued, and all investors were given colibs.
What was done with the funds raised?
Honestly, we never used them. They lie in our financial portfolio. Of these, more than $ 6.5 million was generated (at the bitcoin exchange rate on December 11, - note "Pro business"). The funds remained with us as a kind of collateral, like a bank. Gold reserve.
We also successfully went through calculations in our own crypto currency: we began to sell seedlings and food products for coli. That is, we purchased the colony already - we did not expect it ourselves - the function of payment became a means of payment.
And at this moment just this summer there was a rapid growth of ICO. And we also took part in provoking this excitement.
People looked and said - if a peasant without the Internet, without a computer could conduct this ICO, then we with lawyers, with programmers, probably will get ahead of a simple peasant.
Now we are expanding production for our own funds - for coli. And the portfolio that we have collected becomes some sort of guarantee that colony will not fail.
How did your colleagues in the industry react - farmers, partners, customers?
I also had this question: to whom I will sell my currency? Who will take it? And everyone asked him - who needs your colyons?
In response, I can ask: "Offer someone to sell products for dollars. Take it? ". Yes, they will take dollars for them. Then I said: "Did you ever offer your products for bitcoin?". They tell me - no. I say try it! Yes - they answer, for bitcoin - through one, but the products will still be bought.
Then you can ask the following question: if you sell products for your own crypto currency?
That is, people are afraid to take the first step. I say - yes, do it, then you will understand the minuses.
That in general, we did. One supplier refused to supply us with products - we bought lumber, for our crypto currency. And the other
