Guardiola We are better than last season

first_imgManchester City manager Pep Guardiola believes his side has improved since winning the Premier League title last season.Despite losing two games and trailing four points behind leaders Liverpool so far in the Premier League this season, Guardiola insists his current City has improved since their record-breaking season last season when they won the title with 100 points.“In little details, we are better than last season, which is normal because we have more time together,” Guardiola told Sky Sports.“Our process, our build-ups, our high pressing we can use different movements, we have more alternatives to defend into attack and we are more solid when we defend deeper.”Manchester United delayed City’s title celebrations last season with a shock 3-2 victory at the Etihad, but Jose Mourinho’s side lost 1-0 to West Brom a week later and handed their bitter rivals the title.“Even in games when you are winning 2-0 or 3-0 with 20 minutes left to play I am still not comfortable in saying it’s already done,” he said, recalling United’s incredible comeback from 2-0 down to 3-2 win.Premier LeaguePremier League Betting: Match-day 5 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Going into the Premier League’s match-day five with a gap already beginning to form at the top of the league. We will take a…“But in that game, the way we reacted after a tough week with a Champions League quarter-final against Liverpool in the middle and then United, the way we played the first 10-15 minutes in that game, said to me that we are going to win the Premier League.“Because even if we lost that, the way we reacted and showed what we were, that moment I felt we were going to win the title.“It was our consistency. Of course, we dropped points, that happens, but after that, we were always there, which was the most remarkable thing and what I give the most importance.“Winning cups or the Champions League that’s six or seven games where you have to be good, but in the Premier League it can be every three days, which is why it’s the title I like the most.”last_img read more

Hulu tops 25 million subscribers but still trails Netflix by miles

first_img Share your voice Post a comment 0 Tags TV and Movies Digital Media Hulu has been adding subscribers but remains much smaller than rival Netflix.   Sarah Tew/CNET Hulu surpassed 25 million total subscribers across all products in 2018, the company said Tuesday, an increase of 8 million from a year earlier. Like all other subscription streaming video services, Hulu is still far behind global leader Netflix, which had 137 million members worldwide at the end of September. But Hulu noted its milestone means it has more video customers than even the biggest cable and satellite TV companies in the US, which includes Comcast. The cable giant, which incidentally is one of Hulu’s parents, had 21 million residential TV customers at the end of September. (Awkward… )Although smaller than Netflix, Hulu was one of the vanguards of streaming television. As Netflix has secured its dominance, Hulu has grappled with a crowd of rivals to be one of the other services most consumers sign up for. That competition is set to only grow. Traditional Hollywood giants like Disney, Time Warner and others plan to launch their own versions of Netflix this year.In its end-of-year recap, Hulu said it’s the only service of its kind that has full seasons of 80 percent of the shows nominated for Emmys last year. And people are binge-watching there, too. For Hulu’s top 100 shows, more than half of all viewing sessions were for three or more episodes of the same series.Among other stats, Hulu said average time spent per subscriber each month increased 20 percent last year, and it said viewers who subscribe to both its on-demand service and its live-TV offering spend half of their time watching that on-demand or recorded programming. Hulu said it leaned in to that behavior by investing “significantly” in exclusive programming and improving its streaming technology. It reduced buffering by 90 percent, it said. Its advertising revenue hit a new high of $1.5 billion in 2018, up more than 45 percent. The median age of a Hulu viewer is 32, and the average annual household income was $93,000.Correction, 12:11 p.m. PT: This story initially misstated the year that Hulu’s advertising revenue hit a new high.

Cordcutters delight The AirTV is just 4999 today

first_img The Cheapskate Walmart Best Buy See it $699 Mentioned Above Sonos Playbar $665 $699 Review • Sonos Playbar review: A sound bar for Sonos disciples Share your voice Media Streamers Gadgets Wireless & Bluetooth Speakers See It Bonus deal No. 2: Get an electric arc lighter for just $6.36tacklife-ely01-close-upCan your lighter do this? Tacklife Still lighting candles with matches? Go back to the 1800s, grandma! For a limited time, Red Baby AI (via Amazon) has the Tacklife ELY01 rechargeable arc lighter for just $6.36 with promo code GZ2Y24C4. That’s even less than the Father’s Day deal from last month. The lighter normally runs $13.See it at AmazonThis thing blows matches and propane lighters out of the water. For starters, it has a gooseneck, so it can light where you need it to light. It’s windproof, because there’s no actual flame to blow out. And it won’t ever run out of propane, because it relies on a rechargeable battery that’s good for up to 1,000 uses (!) between charges.The only caveat: If you use it to light candles, wax can get on the tip, which can prevent the arc from lightning. Just scrape off the wax with your thumbnail and you should be back in business.CNET’s Cheapskate scours the web for great deals on PCs, phones, gadgets and much more.

A sound bar for Sonos disciples Now playing: Watch this: Tags Preview • The Sonos Playbar is official: A sleek sound bar that streams all your music for $700 CNET may get a commission from retail offers. Sonos Playbar At just $50 refurbished, the AirTV is one of the cheapest ways to keep local TV channels. And no monthly fees! AirTV Update, July 11: The refurb AirTV is sold out at the $50 price. You can pick up a new AirTV at Amazon for $80 ($40 off), or you can check out the similar Amazon Fire TV Recast for $130 ($100 off). That latter product costs more — and only works with a Fire TV streamer — but it includes a built-in 500GB DVR. Like the AirTV, however, it requires no monthly fees.Read the Air TV review | Read the Fire TV Recast reviewFor many a cable TV cord-cutter, local channels are the final piece of the puzzle. How can you continue to watch (or record) those stations without piling on more monthly fees and defeating the whole point of cutting the cord?Here’s how: Today only, and while supplies last, Woot has the refurbished AirTV dual-tuner local-channel streaming box for $49.99, with free shipping for Amazon Prime subscribers. (Others pay $5.)See it at WootEverything you need to know about this product, you can find in CNET’s AirTV review. However, allow me to sum up: Connect an antenna to the AirTV box, then link the box to your Wi-Fi network (or plug it into your router’s Ethernet port). Presto! Now you can watch live local channels via your streaming devices (Fire TV, Roku and so on) and mobile devices (even if you’re away from home).Better still, the AirTV can pull DVR duty, though it’s BYO USB hard drive. If you have an extra one lying around, great. If not, here’s a Toshiba Canvia 1TB drive for just $49. (My point: Adding your own storage is extremely affordable.)Although the box was “built for SlingTV,” you definitely don’t need a SlingTV subscription. If you have one, those channels will populate the program guide alongside your local ones, which is nice. Even nicer? There’s no monthly fee for AirTV’s program guide.So, yeah, you’re in for $50 for the box. And if you already have an antenna and hard drive, you’re done. The latter is optional, and here’s an indoor HD antenna for just $17.Cord-cutting solutions don’t get much cheaper than this. Even if Woot’s supply of refurbs runs out, the AirTV is quite reasonable at $79.99.If you’ve used one and have thoughts to share, hit the comments section!Bonus deal: The Sonos Playbar drops to $549 (save $150)Sonos Playbar Jason Jenkins/CNET Speaking of refurbished gear for your TV viewing pleasure, the Sonos Playbar sound bar normally sells for $699, but for a limited time, you can get a refurb Playbar for $549. That’s a rare deal and one of the biggest discounts I can recall seeing on this speaker.See it at SonosEverything you need to know about it, you can learn in CNET’s Sonos Playbar review. (Wow, did this thing really come out way back in 2014?)One thing worth adding: All refurbished Sonos gear is guaranteed to be good as new, right down to the full one-year warranty. Sure, at $549 the Playbar is still a pricey addition to a home theater — but at least it’s a little less outrageous. Best laptops for college students: We’ve got an affordable laptop for every student.

Pawan Hans IPO Helicopter firm plans fleet expansion ahead of public issue

first_imgPawan Hans, a state-owned helicopter service company, is accelerating plans for an initial public offering (IPO) listing by the end of 2017 or early 2018. However, before that, the company is taking measures to expand its services to pose itself as an attractive entity for investors.Keen to join the regional connectivity scheme of the central government, the Delhi-based helicopter services firm aims to increase its revenues threefold to Rs 1,600 crore over the next decade from Rs 500 crore during the last financial year (2015-16), the Business Standardreported.Pawan Hans is planning to raise about Rs 350 crore from the market listing. The company has charted out a new expansion plan wherein it would increase its fleet size, diversify business and invest in MRO (maintenance, repair and overhaul) facility, according to BP Sharma, chairman and managing director of Pawan Hans.In an interview to the publication, Sharma further said that the IPO preparation is on in full swing. The State Bank of India (SBI) is currently carrying out a risk assessment survey for the company and the report is awaited. The concrete proposal for the market listing is likely to be out by March next year.Civil Aviation Minister Ashok Gajapathi Raju previously said the public listing will help Pawan Hans a transparent and efficient firm.Expansion plansThe company, which is known for offering helicopter services for VIP movement, now plans to make the service available for the common man. With the proceeds from the IPO and financial backing from the government, the company plans to spend about Rs 4,000 crore to increase its fleet size, which at present stands at 43.According to Sharma, Pawan Hans may acquire around 100 helicopters over the next six years and is reportedly in talks with Bell Helicopters and Airbus Helicopters for the acquisition.Additionally, the company plans to provide connectivity to the Northeast region of the country. “Northeast is a region where the company already has a strong presence through helicopter service. We plan to connect the northeast capitals as well,” Sharma said.last_img read more

The Himalayan expedition

first_imgCascading waterfalls, mighty mountains, wild forests and the lush green valleys  make for everyone’s idea of utopia. For some it is a reality that they breathe day in and day out. The Himalayas, nurtures and sustains the faiths and socio-religious beliefs of its civilization. It cradles myths, legends and tales – some told some untold. Author Alka Raghuvanshi and photographer Sanjay Sharma capture these magical moments in places few have ventured due to reasons of inaccessibility in the book Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’ Garhwal Himalayas- Chorus of Solitude. ‘Perhaps it was ordained that many of the trips were made well before the book was even envisaged. And as the reader goes through the maze of legends and reality juxtaposed in weird and wonderful patterns, it would be important to remember that this journey into the unforgiving terrain – one wrong move is all that separates life from life eternal,’ says the author Alka Raghuvanshi. The photographer made endless trips to most places featured in this book in different seasons in his quest for getting just the right picture, including earlier this year in adverse weather conditions. Being the last documentation of the Uttrakhand region before havoc, this book written over six years assumes even more importance in this context.last_img read more

Despite Long Litigious Past Samsung and Google Announce 10 Year CrossLicensing Agreement

first_img Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box. 2 min read Are Google and Samsung frenemies now? After years of litigation over mobile technology patents, it appears as though the tech giants have finally made peace. The companies announced today a decade-long cross-licensing agreement that covers existing patents and those that may be filed in the future.“With this agreement, Samsung and Google gain access to each other’s industry-leading patent portfolios, paving the way for deeper collaboration on research and development of current and future products and technologies,” Samsung said in a statement.Both companies have tens of thousands of patents, however, the statement does not specify which ones are covered under the agreement.Two years ago, Samsung agreed to pay Microsoft royalties and collaborate on the development of Microsoft-based phones in order to avoid going to court over violating its patents. At the time, the agreement was seen as a setback to Google which had been attempting to establish itself as the standard in mobile operating systems by giving its Android software to smartphone and tablet makers for free.The deal with Google comes at a rough patch for Samsung, which could be strategically aligning itself as it continues to fight a major dispute with Apple. Last November, a U.S. jury in federal court ordered Samsung to pay Apple roughly $290 million in damages. The companies have agreed to a mediation meeting sometime before Feb. 19.Related: In Patent War, Apple and Samsung to Try Mediation Before March Court Date January 27, 2014 Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own.
