    Capitalism: Passenger Economy, looking through ass-hole
    • The Passenger Economy will stimulate value creation from the adoption of Mobility-as-a-Service and other new mobility services as well as emerging new applications and services as well as from savings in time and money associated with vehicle use and from the resulting freedom of movement. Our research finds that autonomous driving technology will enable a new Passenger Economy worth US$7 trillion in 2050. It will drive change across a range of industries, displacing vehicle ownership with Mobility-as-a-Service, and defining a new landscape of concierge and ride-hailing services, as well as pilotless vehicle options for businesses in industries like package delivery and long-haul transportation.


      One thing that is interesting in almost every capitalists reports or predictions is how transparent it is that they are made for regressive class. Contrary to simple words on real people life improvements you see main focus on profits counts, margins, and stock growth potential. This guys think like cook who is only interested in volume and color of your shit produced by his meals. Whole class look at the life via ass hole. And it no surprise that they see dark, scary and smelly future ahead.

    Google will charge you for allowing ads on your site
    • Google will introduce an ad blocker to Chrome early next year and is telling publishers to get ready.

      Chrome’s ad blocker won’t block all ads from the web. Instead, it’ll only block ads on pages that are determined to have too many annoying or intrusive advertisements, like videos that autoplay with sound or interstitials that take up the entire screen.

      Unacceptable ads are being determined by a group called the Coalition for Better Ads, which includes Google, Facebook, News Corp, and The Washington Post as members.

      Do not worry, it is only first step. As it will wipe out all competitive income.

      Next original step will be lower the bar and charging money for so called page certification. :-)

    Canon to join buyback game
    • At the Board of Directors meeting held on May 31, 2017, Canon Inc. (the “Company”) resolved to acquire its own shares under Article 156, as applied pursuant to paragraph 3, Article 165, of the Corporation Law, as follows.

      1. The Company decided to acquire its own shares with the aim of improving capital efficiency and ensuring a flexible capital strategy that provides for such future transactions as share exchanges.
      2. Details of acquisition
        1. Type of shares to be acquired: Shares of common stock
        2. Total number of shares to be acquired: Up to 14.0 million shares, equivalent to 1.3% of outstanding shares, excluding treasury stock
        3. Total cost of acquisition: Up to 50 billion yen
        4. Period of acquisition: From June 1, 2017 to July 14, 2017

    Sony sensors: Cutting costs and aiming at larger margins
    • The conglomerate aims to generate 100 billion yen ($900 million) in annual profit from the segment, even when Japan's currency appreciates to 100 yen per dollar.

      To bolster resistance to any appreciation in the yen, Sony will cut costs, raise production yields for new offerings and increase sales of image sensors used in automobiles. The moves aim to shield the semiconductor business from highly volatile smartphone demand. Output of image sensors is expected to reach 100,000 a month at the end of March 2018, with the volume rising another 10-20% by 2020.

      Sony holds the leading global market share of nearly 50% in value terms for image sensors, Techno Systems Research says.

      Such thing is good read, as it shows both chaos of capitalist markets and real goal having nothing to do with real needs - profits.

    Curved sensors - big advantages but hard to make
    • image

      The significant optical and size benefits of using a curved focal surface for imaging systems have been well studied yet never brought to market for lack of a high-quality, massproducible, curved image sensor. In this work we demonstrate that commercial silicon CMOS image sensors can be thinned and formed into accurate, highly curved optical surfaces with undiminished functionality. Our key development is a pneumatic forming process that avoids rigid mechanical constraints and suppresses wrinkling instabilities. A combination of forming-mold design, pressure membrane elastic properties, and controlled friction forces enables us to gradually contact the die at the corners and smoothly press the sensor into a spherical shape. Allowing the die to slide into the concave target shape enables a threefold increase in the spherical curvature over prior approaches having mechanical constraints that resist deformation, and create a high-stress, stretch-dominated state. Our process creates a bridge between the high precision and low-cost but planar CMOS process, and ideal nonplanar component shapes such as spherical imagers for improved optical systems. We demonstrate these curved sensors in prototype cameras with custom lenses, measuring exceptional resolution of 3220 line-widths per picture height at an aperture of f/1.2 and nearly 100% relative illumination across the field. Though we use a 1/2.3” format image sensor in this report, we also show this process is generally compatible with many state of the art imaging sensor formats. By example, we report photogrammetry test data for an APS-C sized silicon die formed to a 30° subtended spherical angle. These gains in sharpness and relative illumination enable a new generation of ultra-high performance, manufacturable, digital imaging systems for scientific, industrial, and artistic use.

    Autodesk - not so good as Adobe
    • In first 2018 financial quarter Autodesk gained $485,7 millions compared to $511,9 millions year ago. Net losses reduced from $167,7 towards $129,6 millions.

      Now Autodesk is doing same thing as Adobe - forcing you to pay monthly fee and reducing expenses to developers, as they no longer need to add so much software features. At the April 2017 number of forced to subscribe clients raised to 1,32 millions. Total number of subscribers if you include servicing agreements reached 3,29 millions.

      Here you can directly see on example of two big companies how regressive capitalist monopoly becomes.
