Can you get your very own Starbucks? CTO says yes

first_imgTags:#Adobe Systems#coffee#Gerri Martin-Flickinger#Internet of Things#IoT#McAfee#mobile#Postmates#starbucks#VeriSign How Myia Health’s Partnership with Mercy Virtua… Related Posts Follow the Puck Starbucks is one of the smarter businesses when it comes to integrating mobile technology, but the new CTO wants to make the experience even more simple, connected, and personalized.At the annual shareholder event in Seattle, CTO Gerri Martin-Flickinger laid the vision to shareholders of a future where customers have personalized menus, automatic orders, and autonomous deals depending on volume and sales data.“Imagine you’re on a road trip, driving across the country, and you pull into a Starbucks drive-through that you’ve never been to before,” she said, according to GeekWire. “We detect you’re a loyal customer and you buy about the same thing every day, at about the same time. So as you pull up to the order screen, we show you your order, and the barista welcomes you by name.”She followed by saying that this isn’t a crazy pipe-dream, but a goal Starbucks is working towards in the next few years.Starbucks serves IoT hot with sprinkle of Silicon ValleyFlickinger is a Silicon Valley veteran, working at VeriSign, McAfee, and Adobe Systems, so its not surprising she is fixated on all sorts of technology trends and how they can be applied to Starbucks. She was named the first CTO in late 2015, affirming the coffeehouse chain’s commitment to the integration of technology.Two months after Flickinger was appointed, Starbucks began a test delivery service with Postmates. It also partnered with Lyft for the My Starbucks Rewards Program.Starbucks already uses some innovative systems in its store, like internet-connected ovens and coffee machines that receive automatic orders to change the temperature, based on new products and customer feedback. That reduces the human error, by ensuring that there is a standard across all stores.In the future, the system might be able to personalize the heat, texture, and even the design of a product to meet the customer’s demands, according to Flickinger. The huge amount of data acquired by Starbucks on its customers will help tremendously in this personalized pursuit, with 90 million transactions per week from customers.Flickinger didn’t give a precise roadmap for these new systems, but as we move into a more connected age, we suspect Starbucks will continue adopt these technologies before other stores.center_img What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … David Curry Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaceslast_img read more

Underscore is not supported in Intel AMT Hostnames

first_imgIf you are seeing any failures in your log around setting the hostname during a Remote configuration it could be due to a underscore in the host name. Check out Terry Cutlers post on altiris juice @ . Terry references the RFC952 – DoD Internet host table specification @ Here are the assumptions from that specification. ASSUMPTIONS 1. A “name” (Net, Host, Gateway, or Domain name) is a text string up to 24 characters drawn from the alphabet (A-Z), digits (0-9), minus sign , and period (.). Note that periods are only allowed when they serve to delimit components of “domain style names”. (See RFC-921, “Domain Name System Implementation Schedule”, for background). No blank or space characters are permitted as part of a name. No distinction is made between upper and lower case. The first character must be an alpha character. The last character must not be a minus sign or period. A host which serves as a GATEWAY should have “-GATEWAY” or “-GW” as part of its name. Hosts which do not serve as Internet gateways should not use “-GATEWAY” and “-GW” as part of their names. A host which is a TAC should have “-TAC” as the last part of its host name, if it is a DoD host. Single character names or nicknames are not allowed.last_img read more

Zlatan’s social media stir

first_imgZlatan Ibrahimovic caught everyone by surprise when he posted a video of his name printed on a Hammarby shirt on Tuesday morning. The Milan and Bologna target caused some concern for the Italian clubs on Tuesday morning and stirred up a media storm as his name appeared on the back of a Hammarby shirt from the Swedish Allsvenskan. Hammarby’s executives are in Los Angeles to attend a scheduled meeting between the two clubs and the LA Galaxy superstar has now linked himself to become a new member of the Swedish club. LA Galaxy owner Philip Anschutz owns 45 per cent of the Swedish club and it’s not expected that Zlatan will return to Sweden as a player when his contract in Los Angeles expires. “We’ll have more information later this week,” Hammarby’s press officer Love Gustafsson told Aftonbladet. “It’s correct that they are over there now. We share owner with Los Angeles Galaxy and they have invited us over to discuss future business.” @Hammarbyfotboll — Zlatan Ibrahimović (@Ibra_official) November 26, 2019 Watch Serie A live in the UK on Premier Sports for just £11.99 per month including live LaLiga, Eredivisie, Scottish Cup Football and more.

I enjoyed the fifth goal the most.”Casillas’ former side, Real Madrid, came from behind to beat visiting Paris Saint-Germain 3-1 in the other Champions League game on Wednesday.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next BeautyMNL open its first mall pop-up packed with freebies, discounts, and other exclusives Do we want to be champions or GROs? – Sotto Ethel Booba on hotel’s clarification that ‘kikiam’ is ‘chicken sausage’: ‘Kung di pa pansinin, baka isipin nila ok lang’ MOST READ PH military to look into China’s possible security threat to power grid ‘We cannot afford to fail’ as SEA Games host – Dutertecenter_img Hotel says PH coach apologized for ‘kikiam for breakfast’ claim Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

(AP Photo/Luis Vieira)PORTO, Portugal — Liverpool put one foot in the Champions League quarterfinals with a 5-0 away rout of Porto in the first leg of their last-16 match on Wednesday.Sadio Mane scored a hat trick and Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino provided the other two goals to give the Premier League side a huge advantage ahead of the second leg at Anfield on March 6.ADVERTISEMENT A mistake from Porto goalkeeper Jose Sa allowed Mane’s shot to squirm under his body after a slow start from the visitors, and Salah displayed all his class to make it 2-0 four minutes later inside the first half-hour.James Milner hit the post but Salah was well-placed to take the rebound, lift it with his left foot and then head it past Sa before slotting into the empty net without letting it touch the ground.It was the African player of the year’s sixth goal in the competition, and his ninth in eight games across all competitions.The home side showed promise after the break but was caught on a counterattack when Sa saved Firmino’s effort, only to push the ball toward Mane’s feet. The Senegal striker needed no second invitation for his second goal.Sa was playing in place of Iker Casillas, dropped earlier this season after falling out of favor with Porto coach Sergio Conceicao, who must have been reconsidering his decision after a shaky performance from the 24-year-old Sa.ADVERTISEMENT View commentslast_img read more

Hashim Amla quits as South Africa Test captain, AB de Villiers to take over

first_imgHashim Amla surprisingly quit as South Africa’s test captain on Wednesday in the middle of the four-Test series against England, hoping “someone else can add more value” as skipper.Amla said after the drawn second test at Newlands – where he made a double century in a big return to form with the bat – that he was stepping down immediately.”I am comfortable in my decision knowing that I have given my best and will continue to do so,” Amla said after the match.He will remain available as a batsman for the remaining two Tests.AB de Villiers will replace Amla as captain for the remainder of the series, Cricket South Africa chief executive Haroon Lorgat said.Amla took over the captaincy from the long-serving Graeme Smith in 2014 in a popular decision considering his outstanding Test record as a batsman. However, he came under pressure after a lean run of recent results for the top-ranked team, and relative struggles with his own form.Amla oversaw series wins in Sri Lanka and Zimbabwe and a home victory versus West Indies, but South Africa’s recent 3-0 drubbing in India – the Proteas’ first series loss away from home since 2006 – left a lasting impact.Following that, South Africa then lost by 241 runs to England in this series opener in Durban, where Amla was asked about the captaincy. He said then that he was still enjoying it.However, Amla conceded on Wednesday that he had been mulling over the decision to quit as far back as two weeks ago, before the series against England began.advertisementHe denied the fierce criticism in South Africa over the team’s apparent slump, and his own poor scores, influenced his move. He just felt a change was best for the team, he said.”You get to have a bit of a thick skin,” Amla said. Still, stepping down was “a little bit of a relief,” he said.Amla’s decision was unexpected considering his 201 in South Africa’s fighting performance at Newlands. Amla’s first test hundred since December 2014 was at the heart of South Africa’s 627-7 declared, a defiant response after England scored 629-6 declared. By the end of the match, South Africa was on top and England was batting to save a draw.Some of the criticism of the softly spoken Amla’s leadership style was the he wasn’t aggressive enough, a characteristic out of kilter with some recent Proteas captains, who favored an in-your-face kind of style.”If you try and copy anybody, you’ll never be a success,” Amla said. “There are many forms of leaderships.”Amla remains a batsman with an impressive record. His double century in Cape Town was his 24th Test century in 90 matches and his fourth test score over 200. He averages 51.13 in Test cricket.”I honestly feel a lot of the criticism that Hashim has faced in the last couple of weeks is very harsh,” South Africa coach Russell Domingo said. “He is one of South Africa’s greatest players … there hasn’t been enough respect shown of his achievements as a player.”last_img read more

Australian Teams Ready For Trans Tasman Battle

first_imgAfter wins in the Open’s and Youth Trans Tasman Series over the past 18 months, it’s now the Masters turn when they take on New Zealand from Friday, 11 until Sunday, 13 June at Queens Park. Five divisions will be contested in the three game series, with the following divisions to be played: Men’s 30’s, Women’s 30’s, Men’s 40’s, Men’s 45’s and Men’s 50’s.The Australian players arrived in Townsville on Wednesday and will compete in some practice matches against local sides on Wednesday night. At 6.30pm the Australian Men’s 45’s team will take on the Thuringowa Men’s 27’s side and the Australian Men’s 40’s will play the Townsville Men’s 40’s side. At 7.30pm the Australian Men’s 50’s side will play the Townsville Men’s 50’s team, while the Australian Women’s 30’s will play the Townsville Women’s Open team. The Australian Men’s 30’s will take on Thuringowa’s Men’s Open side at 8.30pm. Thursday will see the final touches put on all the team’s preparations, before an official welcome and opening function will be held on Thursday night, with the series beginning on Friday night. 2010 marks 25 years since the first Trans Tasman Series was played in Melbourne in 1985. Touch Football Australia Chief Executive, Colm Maguire, says that it’s a great time to reflect on Australia’s achievements. “The recommencement of the Masters Trans Tasman Series is a great opportunity for long time servants of the game to represent their country and it will complete the final link in the pathway at the Trans Tasman level which we have recently established,” Maguire said. November 1991 was the last time that Masters players had the chance to play a Trans Tasman. Australia and New Zealand Masters teams last competed against each other in the 2007 World Cup against New Zealand, but haven’t played in a Trans Tasman Series for almost 19 years.  Given the time frame since the last time the teams met, TFA High Performance Manager, Wayne Grant, is unsure what to expect from New Zealand, but is confident of Australia’s chances. “We haven’t played them in most senior divisions for quite some time now, but as always they are very tough and determined whenever they play us,” Grant said. The Trans Tasman Series is being played in conjunction with the 2010 North Queensland Championships, which will be contested on Saturday, 12 and Sunday, 13 June. Game one will be played on Friday night, with game two held on Saturday and the final game of the series played on Sunday.Game 1 – Friday, 11 June 2010 5.00pm – Men’s 50’s 6.05pm – Men’s 45’s 7.10pm – Women’s 30’s 8.15pm – Men’s 40’s 9.10pm – Men’s 30’s Game 2 – Saturday, 12 June 2010 10.30am – Men’s 50’s 11.30am – Men’s 45’s 12.30pm – Women’s 30’s 1.30pm – Men’s 40’s 2.30pm – Men’s 30’s Game 3 – Sunday, 13 June 2010 9.15am – Men’s 50’s 10.15am – Men’s 45’s 11.15am – Women’s 30’s 2.00pm – Men’s 40’s 4.00pm – Men’s 30’sTo keep up to date with all of the latest news and results for the 2010 Masters Trans Tasman Test Series, please visit the Trans Tasman website: read more
