Bill Gates invests in plan to cover Earth in video feed satellites

MSFT

Bill Gates invests in plan to cover Earth in video feed satellites. An aerospace company that hopes to launch a network of satellites to provide a continuous live feed of the whole of Earth has been backed by Microsoft founder Bill Gates. EarthNow has plans to launch a fleet of advanced imaging satellites into orbit above the Earth, which will then provide a feed of photos and video as the world itself changes through the seasons and as major natural events occur. It also says its feeds could be used to track whale migration and to help the media in telling stories as well as be used to make “smart cities” become more efficient. As well as backing from Gates, Japanese tech giant Softbank and aviation company Airbus are also investing in the firm.

"AppNexus has been a key partner in ramping up our video monetization efforts based on their innovative video technology solutions and capability to bring us unique video demand," said Kelly Davidson, Director of Global Partnerships, Microsoft. "We launched with a single video ad format in one market and expanded our offering to include three video formats in 65 markets, including broad reach in Europe and emerging markets. As a result, we've seen eCPMs increase by 29 percent and grew video advertising revenue from AppNexus 201 percent year-over-year." To monetize their inventory, Microsoft leverages three different video ad formats, including instream pre-roll, outstream in-article, and AppNexus' unique multimedia superauction technology to enable multiple media types to participate in a single unified auction. "As an open, transparent platform that actively supports verification and measurement by 3rd parties, accessing premium inventory via AppNexus' marketplace is a key element to achieving our clients' video campaign goals globally. We look forward to making Microsoft video inventory on AppNexus available more broadly to GroupM's clients."

3 Stocks That Feel Like Microsoft in 1986

MSFT VTR

'In 1986, Microsoft Corporation was set to take advantage of an incredible transition, as the world increasingly shifted to the use of computers for everything from work to recreation over the ensuing decades.', "That's exactly the opportunity presented by Canadian marijuana stock Aphria Inc.(NASDAQOTH: APHQF), internet banking pioneer First Internet Bancorp(NASDAQ: INBK), and healthcare property owner Ventas Inc.(NYSE: VTR).", "Aphria is growing its top line at a torrid pace. For instance, the company just reported a 100% jump in year-over-year revenue for its third quarter on the back of higher shipments and prices. For the nine months ended Feb. 28, 2018, Aphria's revenue surged 69% year over year.", "The three above are looking to do the same thing, but in different industries: Aphria as legal marijuana goes mainstream in Canada (and beyond), First Internet Bancorp as consumers increasingly accept online financial relationships as normal, and Ventas as the aging baby boomers crest into their highest medical-use years. If you are a big-picture thinker, take a deep dive on each of these very disparate companies -- it's likely that at least one could find its way into your portfolio."

Gates backs gene technologies in fight to end malaria

MSFT

Gene-editing technologies that alter mosquitoes' DNA could prove critical in the fight against malaria, Bill Gates said on Wednesday, and ethical concerns should not block progress in such gene-modifying research. Speaking at the Malaria Forum conference in London, the billionaire Microsoft co-founder and philanthropist said that while gene editing raises "legitimate questions", that should not jeopardize exploration of tools such as CRISPR gene editing and so-called "gene drive" technologies. "I'm very energized about the potential of gene drive.

How to download a copy of everything Microsoft knows about you

MSFT

How to download a copy of everything Microsoft knows about you. CNBC18 April 2018. I've written detailed guides on what Amazon , Google , Twitter and Facebook know about us and, when possible, how to download that data. For some reason I didn't really think Microsoft knew a lot about me. I was wrong — it does know a pretty decent amount. Here's a look at some of the data that I found Microsoft has:. It knows where I am right now. It knows what apps I opened on my Windows 10 computer, down to the exact day I opened them. It has all my search data from its Edge browser. It knows what movies I watched with its Windows 10 movie player, down to the exact date and time. The good news is that, while some of this is kind of creepy -- like Microsoft's knowledge of the apps I opened on my home computer -- Microsoft doesn't seem to have as much as other companies... at least not on the surface. If you use the Edge browser and, like me, share your location with Microsoft, then you might see even more information about yourself. You can see what Microsoft knows about you by visiting Microsoft's Activity History page. To download your data:. - Visit Microsoft's data archive site. - Select "create new archive." This will take a couple of minutes. - Open the archive from your 'Downloads' folder. - Open individual files in the archive with Notepad in Windows. If you're interested in what data other firms have on you, check out some of our earlier guides:. - How to find out what Facebook knows about you. - How to find out what Amazon knows about you. - How to find out everything Twitter knows about you. - How to download a copy of everything Google knows about you.
