Google Apps user needs 10000 contacts Google says no

first_imgWhile I doubt many people will ever reach 10,000 contacts it is something to keep in mind. It also makes very little sense as to why 10,000 is the limit. Any ideas?Read more at FeldThoughts There are many limits I can see a user reaching on their PCs and in the online services they use. Storage is the main concern with your Gmail account having a storage limit, your Dropbox account having a ceiling depending on your account tier, and ISPs increasingly limiting our bandwidth quotas. One limit I never thought I’d see someone quote is a contacts limit, but that’s exactly what one Google Apps user is currently facing – he can’t add any more people to his list.Brad Feld, managing director of Foundry Group has recently hit such a limit on his Google Apps account. He thought it strange, so got his IT guy Ross to contact Google about increasing the limit. His mail simply said:AdChoices广告One of our users has hit some sort of limit of 10,000 contacts – we need this increased as this user needs more than 10,000. Can you let me know how to increase this limit? Google’s usual response to such a question is to increase the limit, or at least offer to for a price. Both would have been acceptable responses for Feld. But in this case it is a hard limit and Google responded as such:Hello Ross,Thank you for your message. I understand that you are inquiring about the Contact limit per user for a Google Apps for Business account.This is expected functionality at the moment and we suggest that you remove some of the contacts that you don’t use to free up some space on your account. You are not able to increase this amount, however if you would like you can submit a feature request for increasing the amount of Contacts each user has. To do this please follow these instructions1. Login to your Google Apps account.2. In your dashboard, scroll down to the very bottom on the screen and you will see a link called ‘Suggest a Feature.’3. Click on this link and you will be able to fill out a feature request.I hope you found this information useful, Ross and thank you for your understanding.last_img read more

Lenovo to launch ThinkPad Tablet running Android 30

first_imgRead more at This is my next 2011 has always been viewed as the year Apple‘s competitors would start to offer some serious alternatives to the iPad. Well, it’s 4 months into the year, and Lenovo has just had a pretty serious contender of its own called the ThinkPad Tablet leaked via a set of PowerPoint slides.ThinkPad has always been a name associated with high-quality laptops running a Windows operating system. The ThinkPad Tablet is different though, as it will run Android 3.0. As for the rest of the specs, it looks to be an impressive 10.1-inch tablet:AdChoices广告10.1-inch IPS capacitive display @1280 x 800Display is pen compatible for sketching and writingNvidia Tegra 2 dual-core processor16, 32 and 64GB storage optionsWiFi, 3G and 4G optionsUSB 2.0, Micro USB, 3-in-1 SD Card, and mini-HDMIFront and rear camerasWeight: 1.6 poundsDimensions: 258.4 x 177.3 x 14mmWhile the underlying hardware looks solid, Lenovo has also spent time creating its own interface solution to sit on top of Android 3.0 rather than relying on the default experience. It is being referred to as the Lenovo Family UI.Lenovo is also clearly aiming this at the business user with supporting slides proclaiming “For on-the-go business professionals”. This is further backed up by the existence of a keyboard case which effectively turns the tablet into a ThinkPad laptop.As for the all-important price, Lenovo is starting from a very acceptable $499 which will likely get you a WiFi-only tablet. We can also expect to see this launch at some point in August, although July has been mentioned.The slides that were leaked are a few months old, so we expect Lenovo has further refined the Family UI. There’s also support for a bunch of popular apps and service which is sure to have grown by the time we reach July. Here’s the two slides showing what is expected to be supported and offered on the tablet:last_img read more

UFCQue Choisir attaque Orange

first_imgUFC-Que Choisir attaque OrangeL’association de consommateur reproche certaines conditions imposées par l’opérateur. Notamment pour son offre quadrupleplay Open.UFC-Que Choisir ne compte pas laisser Orange imposer des conditions qui lui donnerait l’impression de poser un éventuel piège pour les consommateur. L’association a décidé d’assigner l’opérateur devant l’Autorité de la Concurrence à propos de son forfait quadrupleplay Open. Elle lui reproche en effet trois choses. Tout d’abord le fait d’imposer la reconduction de l’engagement sur la partie fixe, lorsque le consommateur fait évoluer son contrat mobile. Ensuite, Orange empêcherait les consommateurs de découpler les offres Tripleplay et mobile au moment de la résiliation d’une d’entre-elles. Enfin, l’opérateur refuse la portabilité du numéro fixe et mobile lors de la résiliation totale de l’offre Open, détaille les Échos du Net.Appelé à réagir, Orange assure de son côté “qu’il n’y a aucun engagement sur la partie fixe, et on peut résilier son offre triple-play sans que soit résiliée la partie mobile”. Le problème réside en réalité dans le fait que les forfaits Open sont gérés par la société Orange France (Orange Mobile) alors que les forfaits Livebox est géré par la société France Telecom sous marque Orange.  Le 5 janvier 2012 à 13:30 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Those little eyes speak volumes literally

first_imgNarayanpet: Till so far we are aware that communication is done only by voice or by writing and reading, however, here is a case where the school students of the Government High School in Potireddypally village in Kosgi mandal of Narayanpet district are fast catching up with the new language of eyes and communicating with each other using the movements of eye lids and eye balls. Also Read – Hyderabad: Intermediate student dies of cardiac arrest in class Advertise With Us Communication using the movement of eye lids and eye balls, though is not new for artists who perform Bhartnatyam and other dances and other folk art forms, however, developing it into a complete language by dedicating each movement to each alphabet in Telugu language is first of its kind development observed here with the students of Potireddypally Government School. Also Read – Vemulawada school seized after road accident Advertise With Us In ancient days it is said that the language of eyes, also called as Netravadhanam was used by kingly scholars and those who did spying and those who lead the soldiers and armies. However, this language which is called as spy language had slowly faded away and was confined only with a few art forms and was on the verge of extinction. However, thanks to the Telugu teacher Hanmanthu of Government High School in Potireddypally village, where he learned this language during the World Telugu Mahasabhalu conference held in Khammam district in 2014. Advertise With Us The Telugu Teacher after being transferred to Potireddypally village shared the language he learned with the school students.

In Telugu literature only literary experts used it and learned it. However, as I found it fascinating I decided to learn it and pass it on to the students, so that this ancient language of eyes can be known to the future generations,” said Hanmanthu.

LT Infotech focuses on hiring in India even as IT firms ramp

first_imgA logo of Larsen and Toubro (L&T) is pictured outside its Corporate office in Mumbai, India May 25, 2016.ReutersEven as numerous major technology conglomerates have been making efforts to hire in the United States, Larsen and Toubro Infotech has said that the firm’s focus remains on India and that is where most of the hiring activity is going to take place.While the firm earlier sent many workers from India to the US on H-1B visas, the firm now plans to hire a few local talents and carry out a majority of work through offshore operations.”This year we have said we will hire around 1,500 freshers and maybe up to 1,000 laterals (both in India and overseas). And I am not going to increase my onsite ratio. So, we will hire some locals for onsite but predominately bulk of the hiring will happen in India,” Sanjay Jalona, CEO at L&T Infotech, told BusinessLine.”So 24 per cent I am saying don’t change the onsite ratio. The same percentage of people will get hired in the US and obviously we want to hire more number of locals. Suppose you are hiring 5 people out of 60 (posted onsite) in the past locally, now you may want to hire 25 people out of 50.”Even though L&T Infotech plans to hire a few locals in the US for onsite operations, the plan may take some time to materialise as Jalona believes that procuring the right kind of talent in the US is not easy. He explained that the firm has been facing issues when it comes to onsite workforce in the US as talent is not readily available. Instead, the firm has been carrying out business through video conferencing. “Using these technologies we do more work even offshore,” Jalona added.Speaking of the change in H-1B visa norms and other government regulations Jalona said that the impact hasn’t been massive yet, but will slowly have an effect. He was, however, thankful that L&T Infotech’s presence is much smaller in the UK due to which Brexit will not have any major effect on the firm.”I think there are a good amount of opportunities. Obviously, the protectionist environment will also come into play both in the US and the UK. Thank god we have small mercies in the Netherlands and France….but otherwise I think its positive overall,” he said. ReutersMeanwhile, numerous IT firms have ramped up hiring in the US after the Donald Trump administration expressed displeasure over US firms outsourcing jobs to other countries. Indian IT giants such as Infosys and Tech Mahindra too have said that they plan to hire a large number of employees in the US.last_img read more

Hold On Houston The Great Oil Slump Is Almost Over…Maybe

first_img Share X To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: Listen 00:00 /00:55 Dave FehlingDeloitte’s John England at Oil & Gas conference in HoustonWhen oil prices plummeted 50 percent in 2014, you might have heard people say what John England heard.“When people say we’ve seen this before, we actually haven’t seen this before. This downturn is very different than any downturn we’ve had in the past,” England told reporters attending the Deloitee Oil & Gas Conference in Houston.England leads energy analysis at the consulting firm. He says this downturn is uniquely bad, having lasted longer than ones in ‘86 and ‘98. Deloitte surveyed oil & gas executives recently to see when they thought this downturn would end. “I think there’s, at best, cautious optimism that we’ve turned the corner and things are starting to go up. Over 50 percent of them believe we’ll get back to $60 a barrel by the end of 2017,” England told reporters.England says $60 a barrel for oil is the threshold that would allow many oil & gas companies to grow versus just survive. Oil now is at about $45 a barrel. The Deloitte survey found many executives think the recovery is underway right now or will be by next year. But the survey found about a third of the executives thought a recovery won’t begin until 2018. Then there’s the political factor. When a new president is elected in November, England says a lot of people in the energy industry may still wonder what impact it’ll have on their business.“The level of uncertainty around this election seems higher than I ever remember in any past ones…because I think they’re not putting out a lot of specifics around energy policy. I don’t think it’s really been front and center in this election. “last_img read more

Corps Funding Will Cover Less Than A Third The Cost Of A

first_img 00:00 /00:49 Graphic by Todd WisemanThis week, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers finally funded the start of a coastal spine, also known as the “Ike Dike,” to guard Greater Houston against storm surges. But the grant still falls short of what’s needed. The Corps allocated close to $5 billion for flood control infrastructure projects in Texas, including $3.9 billion for the construction of a coastal spine stretching from Galveston Bay to Sabine Pass.“Four billion is absolutely a step in the right direction, but is decidedly not nearly enough to protect the region from a direct hit from a major, major hurricane,” says Philip Bedient, director of the Severe Storm Prediction, Education & Evacuation from Disasters (SSPEED) Center at Rice University.Engineers and policymakers have been pressing for construction of a coastal spine since 2008, when Hurricane Ike devastated Galveston and nearly sent a storm surge straight up the Houston Ship Channel. Bedient says $4 billion would just cover the cost of a coastal levee. He estimates building the entire system, including surge gates across the Bolivar Roads, would cost more than $12 billion.

Bringing Back the Art of the Rap Beef

first_imgBy Vance Brinkley, Special to the AFROIf you are a rap fan, there’s a very good chance that you are informed about the current beef between Pusha T and Drake. Ever since the G.O.O.D. Music president went for the Canadian superstar on “Infrared” off of his latest album “Daytona,” the social media world has been taken aback by how entertaining this beef has become.Drake fired back with scathing bars about Pusha over a soothing beat on “Duppy Freestyle,” which had many of us believe that the “Hotline Bling” star had caught another body following his historical rap beef with Meek Mill. However, no one expected for Pusha to respond with “The Story of Adidon,” a track that delivers personal shots to Drake himself, exposes his alleged secret child and mocks Drake’s longtime producer for having multiple sclerosis.Rapper Pusha T used a picture of Drake in blackface as the cover of his Drake diss song. (Courtesy photo)As we move closer to closing yet another decade full of memorable moments in rap, it’s clear that conflicts between rappers have evolved from what the West Coast/East Coast rivalry once represented. Instead of picking up a magazine that would feature one side on the cover, fans now have the opportunity to post how they feel about it on social media and artists can see whether they are on the winning side.What does rap beef look like in our current age? It’s fairly obvious that with music being more convenient to upload for artists, it’s much easier for them to build a proper fanbase off of their own platform. What even makes this idea much more valid is the fact that rappers like Tekashi69 has not only built a following off of only a few tracks on music platforms like Soundcloud, before releasing an album earlier this year, but has also been able to connect, collaborate, and sometimes troll both fans and artists through social media.Unfortunately, while those high numbers of followers can be a monumental attribute to one’s career, it can also be a curse when things don’t go well. In the case of the Pusha T/Drake beef, we never saw Drake on the losing side before “Story of Adidon.” This Grammy-winning artist has several accolades and records broken on the Billboard, not to mention a victory after his rivalry with Philly-rapper Meek Mill, but Pusha T changed all of that with a track the reveals a side of Drake no one has seen and then stomps on it.The chances of you getting shot by another rapper’s group are much lower, yet constant trolling and lack of response can mess up your numbers and eventually your money. It’s a dangerous game that several artists had to play with their careers to keep it going after taking shots that failed. Remember when Nicki Minaj tried dissing Cardi B through a song and certain interviews? She was ducking Remy Ma after “Shether” dropped last year, though.What about rapper Action Bronson? While his music is still good, after a viral video of Ghostface Killah threatening him for throwing shade on an episode of SportsNation about the Wu-Tang rapper, Bronson backpedaled and steered most of his time to Viceland shows.While this the new generation of rap beef can be entertaining on the ‘Gram, things can get messy if it stumbles into reality. Violent moments come from more random encounters in different cities that somehow ends up on social media, but then there are some moments that actually seems to be planned.Recently, Chief Keef was allegedly shot at in New York, with some speculating that the two shooters were allegedly a part of Tekashi69’s entourage. Although those rumors were false, it took 69 to open up on social media about how they were false, but he eventually trolled him in the process. You see? Chief Keef’s moment was a “random encounter,” but Tekashi69 was there to add insult to injury.Keef and 69 were already beginning to trend for beefing on the internet because of a situation between him and his cousin Taito. But you know what Keef did? Made a track with Tekashi’s kryptonite – Trippie Redd. Rappers like 69 and XXXTentacion has experienced the critical effects of the things they wrote on social media, unfortunately, which usually results into getting embarrassed at airports or getting hit in the face during a live concert.So are rap beef as popular as they once used to be? Yes, but it’s on a completely different frontline. Sure, we may have certain diss tracks like the one between Pusha and Drake, but sometimes things can get dangerous if it gets out of hand.In the beef between Chief Keef and Tekashi69, a woman was physically harmed, Keef had actual gunshots fired at him for no reason, and god knows what Birdman thinks about Pusha T now. We’ve seen this several times, but will continue to see it as long as Facebook and Twitter remain prominent in the tech world. However, we hope that there’s no harm to any of these artists because we have also witnessed how rap beefs were once settled. No one wants another Tupac or Biggie.last_img read more

Rage on Xbox 360 is a 22GB install

first_imgIf you watch any gameplay video of id Software’s forthcoming Rage FPS you know it’s going to be a big game. The size of the environments coupled with the quality of the graphics don’t come without lots of data. That accounts for the Xbox 360 version shipping on two DVDs, where as the PS3 can easily handle it on a Blu-ray.360 owners are in for a bit of a shock when they come to install the game, though. John Carmack has confirmed that if you choose to install, then expect to see 22GB of space disappear on your hard drive. Not only is that significantly larger than all other games as far as we know, it’s going to take a while to transfer across.It’s probably not worth considering bypassing the installation as Carmack stated in his QuakeCon keynote that for the 360, installation is “the way to go.” So in the long run, a painfully long installation is worth the wait to help cut down on much longer load times that will end up costing you even more waiting time.As for the PS3 version, we aren’t sure what the deal is, but an install also seems likely if not as large as on the 360. PC gamers can be happy in the knowledge it will be the usual deal of a full game install and disc required in the drive while you play. We hope that’s all it needs and is free of that ridiculous always-connected DRM nonsense some publishers are now opting to use.For some, 22GB may be too much for their 360, and a new hard drive purchase could be in order. You’ve still got a while before the October 4 release date though, it’s just unfortunate Xbox hard drives carry such extortionate price tags.More at VG247last_img read more

Envoy Mortgage Enters Correspondent Lending Space

Thompson suggests Envoy and other lenders with similar market positions are ready to step up and fill that void. “”As a privately held originator and servicer operating nationwide, Envoy is well positioned to enter the correspondent market,”” Thompson said.

Dan Hastings, newly appointed EVP for the correspondent lending division at Envoy says not only is the “”timing bright”” for Envoy to enter the market, but also “”[m]ortgage servicing rights are more valuable today than in many years because of the high quality of loans.”” Cheney, as SVP, and Hastings, as EVP, will head the new division at Envoy.

Dragon Hill Spa: relax and wash away your stressJust like the famous saunas of the Scandinavian countries, Korea has its own upgraded version of bath and relaxation centres called jjimjilbangs. These establishments are found all over Seoul and are popular with the young and old alike and will usually bring in a mix of families, couples and friends. Once you pay the inexpensive fee, you’ll be given keys to your locker and a set of cotton T-shirt and shorts to change into. Once you change into the uniforms (in separate men and women’s sides) and lock your clothes and belongings in your locker, grab a towel and follow the signs to the shared common area, which will be nice and toasty! From here, choose from a multitude of rooms to enter and sweat it out with varying temperatures and properties (salt room, jade room, charcoal room, etc) each of which is supposed to provide a unique health benefit. In between the different rooms you can relax and watch TV, lull on the many floor mats scattered around or grab a snack and refreshing drink from the cafeteria. Once you’re done sweating it out, go back to your locker room area, peel off your sweaty uniforms and go soak in the many different tubs and saunas. If you want the real experience, pay a small fee and get yourself a scrub from one of the professional scrubbers and watch as all your dead and dirty skin goes down the drain leaving you squeaky clean from head to toe.40, Hangang-daero 21na-gil, Yongsan-gu, Seoul+82-2-792-0001www.dragonhillspa.co.kr3.

Gwangjang Market: eating and shopping at Seoul’s oldest marketEstablished in 1905, this traditional market holds some 5,000 independent shops and vendors selling everything from silk to satin and high quality hanbok (traditional Korean clothing). The goods are all high quality yet at a fraction of prices elsewhere, due to many of the shops being wholesale vendors and some even owning the factories where the goods are produced. After marveling at and getting lost in the maze of shops, make your way over to the market’s central ground level where countless stalls, shops and vendors will sell all sorts of traditional Korean bites from blood sausages to spicy rice cakes and more. Particularly famous is the bindaeddeok, a savory pancake made from ground mung beans, vegetables and meat, fried and served piping hot.

Bukchon Hanok Village: a glimpse of traditional KoreaSeoul’s skyline is a bit uninspired and mostly dotted with high-rise apartment buildings. But for a glimpse of traditional Seoul, Bukchon’s Hanok Village offers visitors a look at what home life was like in the past. These simple yet highly efficient and beautiful traditional homes were the centre of the importantly regarded family life in Korea’s Confucian culture, and the simple and tranquil beauty of these homes can be enjoyed in a picturesque setting in this village.

Risen and soaring since then, here’s all the best this happening city has to offer as recommended by this longtime resident and Tripbod in Seoul.1. Mount Bukhan: hiking it up to Seoul’s highest pointWith a vast majority of the landscape in South Korea being mountainous, it’s no wonder mountain climbing is an immensely popular sport for Koreans. While the more famous peaks and ranges may be found outside of Seoul, the capital city’s own Bukhansan (or Mount Bukhan) is the highest peak in Seoul at 836.5 meters above sea level and is a challenging but rewarding climb for veterans and first timers alike. There are many routes to the different peaks but no matter which one you decide to take, the breathtaking views of Seoul and the surrounding areas on top will be an experience in itself. On the way down, reward yourself at one of the locally operated eateries. Chilled noodles, kimbap and makgeolli (a fizzy alcoholic rice wine drink) tastes heavenly in the mountain air and you deserve it after a long hike! Mountain climbing is also one of the best ways to experience the kinship and warm camaraderie of Koreans and don’t be surprised if you make new friends on your hike while getting offered snacks and drinks along the way. Be sure to bring plenty of water and dress appropriately.Ui-dong, Dobong-gu & Gangbuk-gu, Seoul-si+82-2-909-0497www.knps.or.kr RelatedTop 10 things to do in SeoulDress up like a royal at Gyeongbokgung Palace, climb a mountain in the middle of the city, and feast on delicious Korean BBQ: South Korea’s capital is full of surprises.
