A picture illustration shows a YouTube logo reflected in a person's eye, in central Bosnian town of Zenica(Reuters) - Google Inc's YouTube will directly invest in new shows to be launched in partnerships with its four top content creators, it said in a blog on Tuesday. The world's No. 1 online video website also said it entered into an agreement with DreamWorks Animation SKG Inc unit AwesomenessTV to release feature films over the next two years. The partnerships would help YouTube, which completed 10 years last week, secure higher quality advertising as it transitions from a repository of grainy home videos to a site with more polished content. YouTube has been trying to lure more premium video advertising to boost margins as overall prices for Google's ads have been declining.

The phone has a 5-inch display, slightly larger than the iPhone 6 and the same as Xiaomi's Mi 4 smartphone, and starts at 799 yuan ($129). To cut on marketing costs, the Honor 4C will be sold primarily online through outlets including Alibaba Group Holding Ltd's Tmall, George Zhao, the president of Huawei's Honor brand, told the Global Mobile Internet Conference in Beijing.


A PayPal sign is seen at an office building in San Jose, CaliforniaPayPal, eBay Inc's electronic payments division, said on Tuesday it will extend its single-touch payment service from mobile devices to online transactions to try to reduce the $4 trillion in merchandise abandoned in retailers' online shopping carts every year due to complicated checkout procedures. PayPal One Touch, which is widely used by shoppers on mobile phones, is designed to ease checkout flows that have users bouncing between screens and typing in personal information, which leads to millions of unfinished transactions. The average documented online shopping cart abandonment rate is 68 percent, according to the Baymard Institute, an e-commerce research firm. PayPal One Touch will allow customers a secure checkout across PayPal-enabled websites with a single touch, without having to re-enter login information, Anuj Nayar, PayPal's senior director of global initiatives said in an interview.


A woman holds up the iPhone 6 Plus at the Apple Store in Tokyo(Reuters) - Apple Inc beat Wall Street's revenue and profit forecasts on Monday as it sold more iPhones in China than the United States for the first time, but the company gave no sales figures for its new Apple Watch. Apple's iPhone sales in China soared, increasing its revenue in the country 71 percent to $16.8 billion, although that was helped by gift-buying for Chinese New Year. Chief Executive Tim Cook said that China's expanding middle class is fueling iPhone sales there, which is the bulk of the company's sales.


Guests stand next to a Volkswagen logo at the stage of the company at the 16th Shanghai International Automobile Industry Exhibition in ShanghaiBy Julia Fioretti BRUSSELS (Reuters) - All cars and light vans in Europe will have to be fitted with automatic emergency calling devices from April 2018 under new rules approved by European Union lawmakers on Tuesday, which could cut road deaths by 10 percent a year. The so-called eCall device will automatically alert the nearest emergency centre in the event of a crash by calling the EU-wide emergency number 112, which will give authorities information such as the exact location and time of the crash and the number of passengers in the vehicle. Members of the European Parliament in Strasbourg approved the law on Tuesday, meaning car manufacturers such as Volkswagen and Volvo would have to ensure all passenger cars and light commercial vehicles are fitted with the devices by March 31, 2018. "This decision brings Europe one step closer to making operational a system which we have been advocating since 2004," said Erik Jonnaert, secretary general of the European Automobile Manufacturers' Association which includes companies such as BMW, Fiat and Daimler.


A Bitcoin (virtual currency) paper wallet with QR codes and coins are seen in an illustration picture taken at La Maison du Bitcoin in ParisBy Jonathan Stempel NEW YORK (Reuters) - A Manhattan federal judge has denied a request for a new trial for Ross Ulbricht, the man convicted of being the mastermind behind the Silk Road online black market for illegal drugs Calling evidence of Ulbricht's guilt "overwhelming," U.S. District Judge Katherine Forrest on Monday night rejected arguments that the defendant was improperly denied a right to review materials demonstrating his innocence, or examine alleged corruption by two "rogue" agents involved in the case. "According to Ulbricht, the government's gamesmanship in this regard led to inadequate trial preparation, an inability to investigate whether certain evidence might be exculpatory, and, ultimately, an unfair trial," Forrest wrote in a 25-page decision. "These arguments are without merit." Joshua Dratel, a lawyer for Ulbricht, did not immediately respond on Tuesday to requests for comment. A federal jury on Feb. 4 found Ulbricht, 31, guilty of narcotics and other charges for helping to enable about $200 million of anonymous online drug sales using the virtual currency bitcoin.


The European Commission, the EU's executive, says the automatic eCall system could speed up emergency response by 40 percent in built-up areas and 50 percent in the countryside -- saving up to 2,500 lives a yearThe European Parliament voted Tuesday to require all cars EU-wide to be fitted out by 2018 with an automatic dial-up system so emergency workers can get to crash sites as swiftly as possible. "The European Parliament has repeatedly stressed that reducing deaths and the severity of injuries on the roads is its priority," said socialist MEP Olga Sehnalova, lead negotiator of the legislation. The European Commission, the EU's executive, says the automatic eCall system could speed up emergency response by 40 percent in built-up areas and 50 percent in the countryside -- saving up to 2,500 lives a year. In the new regulation, all new models of passenger cars and light utility vehicles will be fitted with 112 eCall and infrastructure put in place to ensure handling of the calls at response centres across the European Union.

As expected, the new device features a 5.5-inch display with a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels, a 16-megapixel camera, 3GB of RAM, a removable 3,000 mAh battery and a microSD card slot.

Watch nature push a freight train off a bridge with rain and windIn another film this would be the origin of a superhero — you don't even need the feats of nature — but this was actually just a Monday outside of a New Orleans' fast-food joint. A huge gust of wind toppled over several freight cars passing along a bridge, and a local reporter just happened to stop his car where he had a perfect view to record it. No leaks and no injuries are reported at this time," Jeff Davis, New Orleans Public Belt general manager says, according to The Times-Picayune. See the photos of train cars toppled, trees blown down as storms rip through New Orleans.


When it comes to flagship smartphones, there are basically three main contenders — though a potential fourth was just unveiled on Tuesday morning by LG. Until we’ve spent some time with the G4, however, the Galaxy S6 (and S6 edge), HTC One M9 and iPhone 6 are as good as it gets for discerning smartphone users looking for the cream of the crop. There has been extensive testing since the One M9 and Galaxy S6 debuted earlier this year, and we’ve seen a common theme emerge: the Galaxy S6 crushes the competition when it comes to raw power and the iPhone 6 is the best in the business when it comes to gaming. But do these test results carry over

A Chrome extension taught me to love the internet again


It’s become commonplace for new electronics to be spoiled days before their unveilings, but we’ve basically known all there is to know about the G4 for weeks now. What can LG do to surprise us when it takes the stage in New York City today? READ MORE: Major new LG G4 details: Stunning camera quality and display secrets revealed From what we’ve heard, the G4 will feature slightly curved, 5.5-inch Quad HD display, a 16-megapixel camera with F1.8 aperture, removable 3,000 mAh battery and a microSD card slot.

Will new laws give federal cybercops too much power?Last year, a single strain of malware was responsible for credit card breaches at Target, Home Depot, and more than 1,000 other US companies, with damages totalling hundreds of millions, if not billions of dollars. In February, President Obama signed an executive order to promote information sharing on cyberthreats, and a new crop of information-sharing bills in Congress look to clear the path even further. The result is one of the more puzzling privacy fights in recent memory, as Congress looks to legally authorize the information sharing that's already taking place, and privacy advocates say the bills in question aren't about sharing information at all. There's already a lot of information sharing in the cybersecurity world, but it tends to happen on an informal basis, and federal agencies like the FBI are often last on the list.


Windows 10’s notifications sound like you’re booting up a Windows 95 PCMicrosoft originally commissioned English musician Brian Eno to create the startup sound for Windows 95. At just over three seconds long, it became an iconic sound as Windows 95 grew in popularity. Microsoft has since changed its sound schemes for many Windows versions over the years, but now it appears to be evoking memories of the summer of 1995 with Windows 10. Russian site WP7 Forum has discovered a number of new system sounds in an unreleased preview version of Windows 10.

Sesame Street parodies The Avengers. Poor HawkeyeIf you were tasked with mapping Sesame Street characters to Marvel Studios' preeminent superhero team, Cookie Monster as The Hulk is a pretty natural fit. Thus, we form the basis of The Aveggies: Age of Bon Bon, wherein the team tries to get "Dr. Brownie" to focus, turn green, and eat the flying chocolate chip with a jam-shooting gun. The five-minute segment is a nod to the ending of the first Avengers, and as with Sesame Street's plentiful other parodies (e.g.


VR company Jaunt is starting a virtual reality movie studioAs virtual reality steadily moves closer to mainstream reality, one of the biggest outstanding questions is content: how popular can VR devices get if there’s nothing to watch or play, and where will the content come from if nobody has devices? Today VR company Jaunt is announcing a new initiative to help answer that question, and a trio of Lucasfilm veterans are jumping on board to bring its plans to fruition. The newly announced Jaunt Studios is a Los Angeles-based wing of the company that will be dedicated solely to developing and producing live-action VR experiences.

What you need to know about camerasI love my new camera, even though I have little understanding of how it works. I recently wrote about the Fuji X100T, which I swear is less complicated than its Terminator-esque name would have you believe. I love how it looks, how it feels, how its pictures look like the photographs I used to take on my mother's SLR. Plus, the X100T is so easy to use, that my not knowing much about its inner-workings, or even some assumed photography basics, doesn't prevent me from enjoying the experience of photography. In fact, it's been a belated re-entry point.
