Model Railroader Launches Paid Video Site

first_imgWith video initiatives of its own that began in 2008—MR currently has about 500 videos and will continue to update its library going forward—Keefe says the magazine’s site served 1.5 million video views last year, up from 1.2 million in 2011. MR currently draws about 200,000 unique visitors and 1.5 million pageviews per month and has a circulation of more than 131,000, per the Alliance for Audited Media.Annual subscriptions to MR Video Plus cost $52.95, though they’re being offered for $32.95 to subscribers of the magazine. Monthly options are also available at $4.95.Interestingly, MR Video Plus’ price is higher than the magazine’s ($42.95/year).”The pricing reflects the costs,” Keefe says. “[That price point] was a simple mechanism of the cost to launch the site and what it’s going to cost to continue to keep the videos fresh.”Keefe says the site will maintain about 250 clips at all times, with 180 original videos produced annually. Instructional pieces will make up the majority of the content, though topical features and interviews will also be included.That instructional, “how-to” audience is a segment Keefe wants to capitalize on. From enthusiasts like MR to consumer publications like Motor Trend or This Old House or Everyday Food, video is proving popular with hobbyists.”[There’s] evidence elsewhere that companies seem to be having success in doing this with other hobbies,” Keefe says. “Things like cooking, gardening or woodworking.

BTS To Release New Album Love Yourself Answer With Upcoming Tour

Love Yourself: Tear reached No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart dated June 2, the first time ever a Korean band has claimed the top spot. Although the hints are more tantalizing so far than revealing, it looks like they are aiming for a repeat.On that same June 2 chart, the BTS single “Fake Love” reached No. 10 on the Hot 100, their first Top 10 hit. On Oct. 17, 2017, the band’s “DNA” from their album Love Yourself: Her reached No. 67, kicking off the latest period in which public awareness of the seven more-than-idols exploded. Although the band’s music quality has always been high, Love Yourself: Tear reached an unexpected level of growth, both critically and in sales.center_img BTS will arrive in Los Angeles on the U.S. leg of their sold-out tour on Sept. 5, just after Labor Day. That will be one week after they are expected to begin performing their highly anticipated new material. Whatever the details prove to be, this is going to get a lot of attention from the group’s passionate fanbase. Fans went wild as news of the announcement spread, and BTS Army are bound to do their best to spur sales.BTS offers their fans a lot: targeted content, the rich backstory of alternative BTS universes and symbolism, even a philanthropic context connecting fanhood to global citizenship. Three percent of all Love Yourself album proceeds have been pledged to the group’s UNICEF Love Myself international campaign. Simply put, these young men have taken K-pop to unprecedented heights.Moreover, it takes more than nerve for first-ever pop stars to drop a new album only two months after having an album at No. 1. That’s artistic confidence, and the fan army are not the only ones wondering what behind-the-scenes songs BTS will unleash, challenging themselves like this. We know the answer is in an album called “Answer” and besides that, the world will have to wait.Catching Up On Music News Powered By The Recording Academy Just Got Easier.

FCA leans on Harman and Google for new connectedcar services

But now, its Uconnect telematics are set to receive a big boost to help adapt to the future of in-car services.Fiat Chrysler announced on Tuesday that it will rely on tech from Harman and Google to build out its connected-car services. This “ecosystem,” as FCA refers to it, is set to launch in the second half of 2019, and it’ll be part of all new FCA vehicles around the world by 2022.Harman’s Ignite cloud platform will serve as the base for the out-of-car side of FCA’s services. With 4G connectivity and tech that fosters “the evolution to 5G,” FCA says its cloud services will work with any service provider worldwide. It’ll cover all the normal stuff that other automakers have in their connected-car portfolios, like fuel and charging station locations, predictive maintenance and over-the-air updates. It should also be capable of working with vehicle-to-infrastructure communication.Enlarge ImageHere’s a quick look at the major things FCA wants its new system to deliver. Yes, it’s a lot. Fiat Chrysler Automobiles Google comes into play inside the car. The next version of its Uconnect infotainment system will run on Android, further bridging the connection between phone and in-car telematics. While this might conjure memories of Volvo’s announcement that it will use Android OS in the upcoming Polestar 2, there’s one key difference. Whereas Volvo’s foray with the operating system includes Google Maps, Google Assistant and other apps and services, FCA’s system won’t have any of those ancillary bits, just the operating system.FCA was quick to note that these new foundations will allow for a number of services specific to electrified vehicles, too — an area where, at least in the US, FCA lags behind its competitors. These platforms will enable remote battery management, EV navigation that keeps range in mind and services that help the vehicle work better with the electrical grid.There’s even more than that in store. FCA has its sights set on alternate mobility methods, too — its system is capable of working with usage-based insurance, varying-term vehicle rentals and even peer-to-peer car sharing. The automaker didn’t say which parts would start rolling out first, but as we push into the next decade (just a few months away!), we’ll get a better idea of what FCA has in store.Originally published April 30, 8:08 a.m. PT.Update, 5:32 p.m.: Clarified differences between Volvo and FCA operating systems.last_img read more

YouTube comments hidden by default in companys new test

first_imgWill YouTube say no comments? Sergei Konkov/Getty Images YouTube’s comments section can be a mix between no man’s land in a war zone and the Wild West. Translation: The place can be dangerous. So instead of making you read what the New Statesman called “the worst of the internet,” YouTube is working on a new feature that would hide comments by default.YouTube didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment but it confirmed the test in a statement to TechCrunch on Friday. “This is one of many small experiments we run all the time on YouTube, and we’ll consider rolling features out more broadly based on feedback on these experiments,” the Google-owned site told the publication. XDA developers had spotted the test in India on Wednesday. You have to scroll past engagement buttons and recommended videos to find the comments section on Android and iOS now, but the new test reportedly hides the comments section entirely. Comments would instead be accessible by clicking a new icon, beneath the video and to the right of the thumbs-down icon. Comments could also be found by scrolling past the recommended videos, like before, but you’d have to tap to see them. It remains to be seen whether a user’s engagement with a video would drop if comments were hidden.  Comment YouTube banning supremacist and hoax videos, Amazon unveils… CNET Apps Today Share your voice Tags Now playing: Watch this: 1:12 1 Mobile Software Mobile Apps YouTubelast_img read more

BMW Motorrad Vision DC Roadster mimics a boxer but is actually electric

first_img 2020 BMW 330e first drive: A plug-in 3 Series without compromise BMW Motorrad BMW 2019 BMW X7 first drive: Big-time Bavarian BMW’s riderless, self-driving motorcycle goes for a spin… Motorcycles Electric Cars Concept Cars 1:30 Comment More From Roadshow Tags Now playing: Watch this: Share your voice 1 2019 BMW X5 xDrive50i review: A potent and tech-rich SUV 27 Photos Enlarge ImageI don’t think I’m cool enough to even look at this bike. BMW Motorrad Electric motorcycles aren’t new, but they’ve been gaining some serious steam as companies like Harley-Davidson finally pick up the pace and accept 21st-century technologies into their products. BMW Motorrad’s motorcycles have a very important history with a specific combustion engine, but because the future doesn’t wait for anyone, BMW gave its bread-and-butter setup a heapin’ helpin’ of electrification.BMW Motorrad, the automaker’s motorcycle division, unveiled the Vision DC Roadster concept on Tuesday. The manufacturer did away with the Beemer’s staple flat-two “boxer” gas engine and replaced it with — I’ll pause so you can grab your pearls for later clutching — an electric motor and battery. Yet the company didn’t want to eliminate that link to the past in its entirety. Given the small nature of the electric motor, and the relatively not-small nature of the batteries required for decent range, BMW Motorrad shuffled things up a bit. The battery is now where the boxer engine used to be, and the OEM did the best it could to arrange things so that they still bore a passing resemblance to an internal combustion engine. The cooling elements are exposed and placed in the air stream to keep temperatures manageable, and when the bike starts up, the cooling elements move outward. Instead of using a chain to drive the rear wheel, it uses a universal shaft.BMW Motorrad Vision DC Roadster ConceptEnlarge ImageNo fuel tank? No problem. BMW Motorrad Since there’s no gas engine, that means there’s no need for a gas tank, which means there’s more space to get expressive with the design. The whole thing looks like something out of a dystopian anime, sharp and aggressive with a healthy dose of cool. The bike’s electric drive is surrounded by a milled aluminum frame and some minimalist fairings. Further adding to the sci-fi theme is a set of fluorescent elements on the sides of the tires that can create designs while the bike is in motion.Heck, even the rider’s gear is plucked from some 23rd-century megalopolis. In addition to looking more like street wear than traditional armor, the suit has built-in magnets, to which a rucksack can be attached. Whenever the rider needs something from the bag, just pull and detach the magnets. Just don’t stand too close to any old-school CRT televisions.The BMW Motorrad Vision DC gives us a pretty interesting look at the future of BMW’s motorcycle division. With an emphasis on applying new technologies without losing sight of the design that made the old one so cool to start, this new concept looks right at home alongside BMW’s other new concept, the Vision M Next. BMW Motorrad Vision DC Roadster is an all-electric thrill ride BMWlast_img read more

Abhinandan could start flying fighter jets soon Bengalurubased group to take final

first_imgIAF Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman will return to the cockpit and resume flying soon.Indian Air Force braveheart Abhinandan Varthaman, who was captured by Pakistan last month and returned to India two days later, could once again fly fighter jets after he is given final clearance by the Bengaluru-based Institute of Aerospace Medicine (IAM). As per reports, there’s a fine chance that the 35-year-old IAF hero will return to the cockpit and resume flying soon.As per laws governing the Indian troopers, any serving officer who has recently returned from enemy captivity has to undergo a series of tests. It is believed that Abhinandan, too, will have to undergo all kinds of training all over again before he can take to the skies again.Abhinandan joins his squadronIAF Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman has gone back to his squadron in Srinagar though he is on sick leave for four weeks. The IAF pilot preferred to stay with his squadron in Srinagar than spending time with his family in Chennai while on leave. Varthaman was on leave for few days after the security agencies completed a nearly two-week debriefing after his return from the nuclear-armed neighbour Pakistan.The IAF Wing Commander returned home on March 1 after his MiG 21 Bison crashed during a dogfight with Pakistan.

After Air Pegasus Air Costa halts operations over payment issues

first_imgFinancial crunch is making it tough for regional airlines providing connectivity to smaller towns to conduct their operations. On Thursday, Air Costa became the second regional airline to halt its operations.The Vijayawada-based carrier had received a licence to operate flights across the country last year. However, owing to non-payment of dues, its flights were cancelled for a day. “There are some payment issues with our lessor GE Capital Aviation Services (GECAS), which are being sorted out. Tomorrow i.e. on August 5, we will start our operations as scheduled,” an Air Costa spokesperson said on Thursday.The airline covers six Indian states — Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Rajasthan and Gujarat. It flies 24 flights daily to nine destinations and is reportedly planning to start operations from Varanasi and Delhi in the near future.Air Costa is the second regional airline to cancel its operations after Bangalore-based Air Pegasus, which had cancelled its flights last month. Air Pegasus, which has a fleet of three aircraft, had suspended its operations for an indefinite period after its lessor took back the aircraft due to financial reasons.The civil aviation ministry said on Thursday that it would examine the feasibility of any assistance if there is a request from the regional airlines.”If they (Air Costa and Air Pegasus) approach us, we will examine…what is feasible and what is not. But as of now they have not approached us,” RN Choubey, the Civil Aviation Secretary, was quoted as saying by Press Trust of India. The government’s initiative to provide regional connectivity to every Indian was unveiled in the new civil aviation policy, which was released on June 15. Under the new guidelines, regional airfares will now be capped at Rs. 2,500 and Rs. 1,200 for one-hour and a 30-minute flights, respectively.last_img read more
