It’s hard to remember a more dominant performance on football’s biggest stage than the USWT’s crushing 13-0 victory over Thailand during their opening game of the 2019 Women’s World Cup on Tuesday. There was no easing themselves into the tournament, with Jill Ellis’s team asserting themselves on the tournament in emphatic style, ruthlessly scoring nine …

The need to take card payments online and off has become paramount for the modern business. However, to do that requires payment processing, usually supplied by merchant service providers.
This can come in the form of a card reader for physical PoS (Point of Sale) transactions, in which even an app on your phone or other mobile device can run the transaction through. Additionally, or alternatively, you can also get credit card processing to run through an ecommerce site.
PoS processing fees tend to be cheaper, on the grounds that the customer is physically present and so the chances of fraud are less than anonymous online transactions. However, for PoS processing in a bricks and mortar store you may need to pay for additional equipment, not least the card reader itself.
Fees can also vary according to sales volume, and it’s worth keeping an eye on transaction fees. While some merchant services may charge seemingly high monthly fees, these often come with very low individual [...]read more
Il vetro che va in frantumi, la discussione, il pugno nell’occhio che si gonfia e rende il viso quasi irriconoscibile. «Quell’uomo infastidiva i passeggeri». Massimo Matrone, 55 anni, è conducente di bus Atm e venerdì notte, mentre era in servizio sulla «sua» linea, si è beccato un pugno in faccia. «Ero alla guida della 95 — racconta l’uomo — stavo andando dalla Barona verso San Donato». Un percorso di routine, conosciuto in ogni svolta e semaforo. All’altezza di via Ripamonti sale sul mezzo un uomo cileno, di 39 anni, che evidentemente ha mandato giù troppi bicchieri. Gironzola tra i sedili, inizia a infastidire i passeggeri, a inveire contro gli stranieri. «A quel punto gli ho detto di stare calmo, di lasciare tranquilli gli altri e di venire a sedersi più avanti» continua il conducente. In piazza Angilberto II, al Corvetto, riesce a far scendere l’ubriaco che intanto lo insulta. Manca poco a mezzanotte. «Sono andato avanti fino [...]read more

Sony’s newest premium handset, the Sony Xperia 1, launched at a whopping $949 / £849 price tag – that’s one of the highest prices of any Sony phone, and it puts it in league with the Samsung Galaxy S10, Samsung’s most recent flagship handset.
Both devices have high-end features like triple-lens rear cameras, novel screen tech, and the newest processors available, but they’re also different in a few ways – you can tell as much from the pictures.
We’ve compared the two premium handsets so you can see what the difference between them is, and work out if one of the devices is the next phone for you.

If you’re not making adjustments, you’re not learning, right? Isn’t that the reason every tech conference echoes with the word “iteration”? This week, we saw plenty of course corrections. Audi recalled a few E-Trons over a faulty grommet, a blooper that risks (but has yet to produce) a battery fire. Aurora, the self-driving tech startup, and VW ended their agreement to work on autonomous vehicles—just as Aurora struck another deal with FCA. New York decided it wanted even more rules for Uber and Lyft. We drove a Lamborghini that adapts to how you drive. Because change is sometimes fun, right?
Also this week: We learn how the engineers at Cadillac expanded the capabilities of its SuperCruise driver assistance feature, and hit the California coast in a hybrid Porsche 911. It’s been a week. Let’s get you caught up.
