He raises the level of those around him by 10-15% and opponents don’t want to look stupid in front of him.”last_img read more

Fletcher loved playing with Rooney and Ronaldo

first_imgManchester United’ own Darren Fletcher, revealed what it was like to play with two of the best forwards in the club’s history: Rooney and Ronaldo.The generation that won the last Champions League at Manchester United under Sir Alex Ferguson was truly brilliant, it was filled with talented players like Wayne Rooney or Cristiano Ronaldo and people like Darren Fletcher had the honor of playing alongside both players.The former Scottish player was able to give a better insight into his career with the Red Devils, he talked about many topics but he was especially excited to mention both of the best players in the modern era who also happened to play alongside him at Manchester United.When Fletcher spoke about Cristiano Ronaldo, the Scotsman revealed that there was a sensation he would become the best player in the world from the very start of his career as the Portuguese forward was a very dedicated athlete.Fletcher first confessed that a lot of people doubted Cristiano Ronaldo’s resolve and determination, but somehow he felt that the star would get to where he wanted sooner rather than later.Out of all the players he shared a locker room with, Darren feels like Ronaldo was the biggest example of how to be a professional and he always followed that example as a player.The brilliant nickname that Cristiano Ronaldo gave Wayne Rooney at Manchester United… https://t.co/vGRHinpEPq pic.twitter.com/EC1QGVpY28— SPORTbible (@sportbible) November 6, 2018It was quite evident that Cristiano was a winner from the very first day he arrived in Manchester United from Sporting Lisbon, Fletcher was there almost from the very start and he recalled the first years of Ronaldo’s career on Monday Night Football for Sky Sports.“He had a mindset that he was going to be the best player in the world from the day when he came into the club,” said Fletcher during the interview.“He took training to another level. At first, people loved the desire but he did get stick for it with people saying: ‘It’s easier said than done.’ But people respected it and liked that mentality of wanting to be the best.”“There were times when he was putting ankle weights on for training and doing fast feet. The lads were laughing at him but he didn’t care and it didn’t deter him.”“Ultimately people respected it. The lads saw it as a bit of banter but deep down they respect that work rate, that desire, and that sheer determination to be the best player in the world, and he went on to achieve it,” added Darren Fletcher on the Sky Sports program.Ronaldo on Wayne RooneyRomelu Lukaku, Inter MilanLukaku backed to beat Ronaldo in Serie A scoring charts Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Former Inter Milan star Andy van der Meyde is confident Romelu Lukaku will outscore Cristiano Ronaldo in this season’s Serie A.“I miss him. The future, nobody knows, maybe we’ll play one day together again.” pic.twitter.com/eCp5WAevJM— Sánchez (@OMDItsme) November 5, 2018During the long interview about his career at Manchester United, Darren Fletcher also remembered Wayne Rooney and how both players were the youngest on the squad.Being the newcomers on Sir Alex Ferguson’s team meant that both players developed a unique connection: “Wayne was fantastic,” said Darren.“We were two of the youngest in the dressing room and we built up a good relationship very early. There were a lot of experienced winners in the dressing room and me and Wayne were close in age with similar backgrounds and we just got on and clicked.”“You could tell Wayne was going to go on and be a Manchester United great. The only worry was would a Real Madrid or someone like that come in for him, because that was quite possible.”“But there was no doubt that he was going to go on and win everything, go on and be club captain and end up England and Manchester United’s leading goal scorer – what an achievement.”“I don’t think he gets the appreciation he deserves. Still, people don’t realize how good Wayne Rooney was, and always was, at Manchester United. And again, he was a team player. He sacrificed himself at times for the good of the team,” he concluded.With 80 caps for @ScotlandNT and over 200 appearances for @ManUtd, Darren Fletcher has played alongside and against some of the best around! 💫🗣 Got a question for him?Tweet it to us using #MNF and it could feature on the show! pic.twitter.com/H3kbNmZNhF— Sky Sports MNF (@SkySportsMNF) November 5, 2018What do you think about Darren Fletcher’s take on Cristiano Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney during his days at Manchester United?

Netflix widens smart downloads to iPhones

first_img Netflix Tags Share your voice 0 Digital Media Post a comment Netflix makes its originals shows, like Sex Education, available for download.  Jon Hall/Netflix Netflix is widening its “smart downloads” feature to Apple mobile devices, the company said Thursday, giving more mobile users the option to let Netflix automate your offline cache so you don’t need to keep on top of the episodes downloaded to your device. The streaming-video giant introduced “smart downloads” on Android devices in July as a way to automatically remove downloaded shows you’ve already watched and refresh them with the next episodes you haven’t seen once your phone reconnects to Wi-Fi. Netflix defied downloads for years, holding out for the day that connectivity would advance so much that downloading to watch offline wouldn’t be necessary anymore. But it changed course more than two years ago, as competitors like Amazon Prime Video began offering downloads, and as Netflix itself expanded internationally to markets where mobile connectivity was more scarce and expensive. In 2016, it began letting subscribers download much of its catalog.  Tech Culture: From film and television to social media and games, here’s your place for the lighter side of tech. Apple: See what’s up with the tech giant as it readies new iPhones and more.last_img read more

Google Doodle pays tribute to Japanese inventor Seiichi Miyake

first_img Online Wellness Smart City Google When Seiichi Miyake found out a close friend was losing the ability to see clearly, he wanted to help. That desire led to an entirely new way for the visually impaired to navigate big cities, railways and parks. In 1965, Miyake invented the tactile paving slab (or “tenji block” in Japan) with his own money. Monday’s Google Doodle celebrates the introduction of the block 52 years ago.The doodle from March 18, 2019. Google The tenji blocks were first installed in the Japanese city of Okayama on March 18, 1967, next to a school for the blind, and they would go on to revolutionize the way the visually impaired interact with the world, making it safer and easier to get around public spaces independently.Miyake’s original design, which was installed in all Japan Railway platforms in the 1970s and rapidly found its way to cities across the globe, featured two tactile patterns that people with visual impairments can detect with a cane or through their feet — providing cues on which way they should head.Subway tracks in New York with the yellow tenji tiles.Subway tracks in New York with the yellow tenji tiles. Keith Getter/Getty Images One pattern features a series of raised lines that indicate “forward”. The second design is commonly referred to as the “truncated domes” pattern, a series of small bumps that act as a “stop” sign — typically at the edge of a train platform or before a motorway.A number of different patterns have been designed since, with smaller raised dots or more pill-shaped bumps signifying different directional cues. For instance, when the raised lines are horizontal in the direction of travel, that might mean “look out for steps ahead”. All of those cues, which many may not even notice as they wander through a city, are incredibly important for those with limited vision. 4:33 Share your voice Comments Now playing: Watch this: Google Doodle Google 49 Photos Tags Microsoft tech teaches children who are blind how to… Our favorite Google Doodles through the years 23last_img read more

Broken Tech Should You Fix it or Replace it Infographic

Whether we accidentally spill liquid on them, drop them or they finally give in to wear and tear, in time and without question, all of our beloved electronics will eventually let us down, workplace devices included. So the question isn’t when will your gadget’s day of reckoning come, rather, it’s what will you do when it does? Will you suck it up and pay to fix it? Or will you ditch it and buy a new one?Deciding can be a tough nut to crack, especially if you’re too busy to crunch the repair vs. replace cost-benefit numbers. Instead, stick with this simple rule of thumb: If the expense of replacing the broken item is more than twice the cost of repairing it, it’s probably best to repair it, according to Lexicon Technologies, a technology maintenance company and the creator of the helpful infographic on the topic below.Tablet lovers, you’re in luck. Tablets are generally worth fixing if the cost of repairs doesn’t exceed $210, Lexicon reports. Replacing a broken tablet with a new one will likely cost you double, typically around $420. Is a new tablet really worth it? Probably not if you have to replace more than a few for butterfingered employees.

As satirical British street artist Banksy recently (and quite sinisterly) illustrated, we’re basically at peak smartphone addiction. Some of us even sleep with our cells more than we do our lovers. Should our precious phone croak, we (yours truly included) often fly into a panic and replace it straight away, without so much as budgeting or shopping around for a good deal and that’s no bueno. Why not? Repairing an ailing smartphone is typically a smarter money move than getting a new one. So much for that shiny, new iPhone 6, huh? The average price of replacing a smartphone is about $500 these days, whereas fixing one usually costs between $50 and $150.   Switching to bigger electronics now, it’s generally best to replace desktop computers, ideally every three to four years. On the other hand, laptops are generally more cost effective to repair, while desktop printers are cheap enough to simply replace when they kick the bucket.Related: Long Live Your Laptop BatteryFor detailed side-by-side repair vs. replace comparisons for all of the above mentioned electronics and more, check out the infographic below.  Click to Enlarge+Related: 10 Questions to Ask When Hiring Your Company’s First IT Support Person Register Now »last_img read more

Want a 3D Printed Selfie Theres an App for That

first_imgMarch 2, 2015 Register Now » 3-D printed selfie.Image credit: DacudaEver wanted a 3D printing of your selfie? Well you’re in luck.Swiss company Dacuda and Swedish company Volumental have developed a mobile app that allows selfie-lovers to have their picture printed in 3D.Users can take a picture using their smartphone or tablet, moving it from left to right in front of their face. This will create a 3D rendering of their face. They will then be able to send the picture to a 3D printing company and receive a 3D version of their face in the post.Alexander Ilic, the founder of Dacuda, told CNBC that he anticipates many people won’t own their own 3D printer, but the technology will become so cheap that having a selfie delivered will be plausible.”We expect people won’t have a 3D printer quickly but we think the technology will become more affordable,” Ilic said in an interview.The app is so far compatible with Apple’s iOS devices from the iPhone 5 range and above. iPads can also be used. Ilic said the app can work on Android version 5.0, but only on certain devices that have compatible camera software.Dacuda is showing off the technology on a Dell tablet, which uses a compatible version of the Android operating system, at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona this week.Taking advantage of the selfie trend has become a battleground for device makers as they all look to outdo each other on the specs of their smartphones’ front cameras.Dacuda’s app is taking advantage of this trend. Ilic said the software is set for a global roll out in the third quarter of this year and will likely be free, with the company earning money by taking a cut of revenues from the companies printing the 3D selfie.

How to Get Google to Quit Tracking You

first_img Free Webinar | Sept 5: Tips and Tools for Making Progress Toward Important Goals April 20, 2017 Where you go, Google goes. If you have location services turned on, Google Maps keeps track of every step you (and your smartphone) take. You can also share your location with anyone in real time on iOS and Android.Depending on your settings, all this activity is archived in your Google Timeline. The feature, introduced in 2015, can be a walk down memory lane, but it can also leave the door to your privacy wide open. With Timeline, not only can Google Maps show you where you’re going, but where you’ve been. There might also be photographic evidence since Timeline syncs with any shots uploaded to Google Photos.If you’ve turned on location services, Google is constantly pinging your phone from cell towers and Wi-Fi and using GPS to see where you are. The frequency with which it finds you can be every few minutes or every few seconds, painting a pretty accurate picture of where you are at all times.If this all seems less helpful and more harmful, you can remove your location history and tell Google to quit it already and stop following you. Here’s how.AndroidWhen you upgrade to the latest version of Google Maps, and check out your Timeline (Hamburger icon > Your timeline), Google will ask you to turn on Location History. You can then check out where you’ve been. I signed in on a borrowed Galaxy Note 4, so the only thing it had tracked was my location at the office.If you’d rather not have your Android phone tracking your location, go back to Your timeline and tap on the three dots on the upper-right corner.Select Timeline SettingsScroll down to Location Settings.Tap “Location History is on.”A pop-up window will appear; tap the checkmark next to “On”Tap “OK” on the window that appears.(You can also navigate to Hamburger icon > Settings > Google Location Settings > Location and toggle it to off.)You can also get rid of everything under “Delete All Location History.” A pop-up will warn you that everything is about to be deleted, which might affect how Google Now and other apps that use Location History work. If that’s OK with you, check the box next to “I understand and want to delete” and then Delete.Apple iOSGoogle only just brought Timeline to Apple devices. Like on Android, select the hamburger menu and tap Your timeline. There you’ll see recent locations (or nothing if you have it turned off or limited).If you want to wipe a location out of your history, tap the three dots on the top right and “Delete the day.” You can also navigate to Settings > Maps History and tap the “X” next to a location you want to delete.To get rid of absolutely everything, go to Settings > Personal Content > Delete All Location History, acknowledge this is what you want to do, and click Delete.In order for Google to populate the Timeline section of your app, you’ll need to turn on location tracking in the background. On your iPhone, go to Settings > Privacy > Location Services > Google Maps > Always. To only enable location tracking while you’re using the app (not in the background), select “While Using the App.” This can be helpful if you want the phone to remember where you’ve been for future searches but not be constantly tracking you.WebYou can also clear your history from a desktop. Go to Google Maps and sign in to your account. Select Menu and then Your Timeline. You’ll see every place you’ve been while Google Maps has been with you.You can delete just one day by selecting the day on the top left and clicking the garbage can icon.To delete your entire location history, go to the Timeline, click the gear icon on the right side of the screen and select “Delete all Location History.” Like on mobile, a pop-up will ask you if you really want to do that. If so, check the box next to “I understand and want to delete all Location History” and then “Delete Location History.” Attend this free webinar and learn how you can maximize efficiency while getting the most critical things done right.
