That, however, hasn’t stopped the technology world from staring straight at the elephant in the room: can the Playbook compete with the iPad?At first glance, it looks like it can. Its processor and RAM are both superior, despite its smaller size. This would seem to be good news for users dealing with a lot of video or multi-tasking between apps. It has been positioned closer to BlackBerry’s core enterprise market, rather than the consumer-facing iPad, which could reel in the massive following the smartphone commands. Goldman Sachs issued a cautiously optimistic note yesterday in which it said: “RIM’s Playbook tablet surprised us by being positioned for enterprise and by having a robust set of specs. This could allow RIM to offer a differentiated product to the iPad.”But Morgan Stanley was less enthusiastic, saying: “We believe the Playbook is well suited for enterprise, but could be far less successful with consumers.” The market seems to have reacted with a similar degree of scepticism, with RIM’s stock falling yesterday. The Canadian firm lacks the cult following of Apple and cannot hope to emulate its rival’s overnight success, especially given its Playbook is competing in a market with two other lauded devices – the iPad and Samgung’s Galaxy Tab. However, if it can win over business users it could be a sleeper success. Pricing is likely to be the key and Lazaridis has hinted the device will undercut the iPad, with figures yet to be unveiled. This fight is far from decided. Share Tuesday 28 September 2010 10:38 pm RIM goes toe-to-toe with Apple’s iPad Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Analysis: Spotlight on New Zealand’s kicking against Ireland

first_img As his England side prepared to take on Steve Hansen’s men in the autumn of 2013, with a three-Test summer tour of New Zealand on the horizon, Stuart Lancaster stressed the importance of the All Blacks’ kicking game. From alleviating danger to scoring tries, he argued that the boot was fundamental to their success.Later, Lancaster would be criticised for obsessing over New Zealand’s approach. But he could never be accused of failing to do his homework. Lancaster noted that the All Blacks had kicked 17 times in open play during the first Test against France the previous June. Les Bleus caused the hosts problems and almost stole a tense tie at Eden Park. Over the next two weekends, New Zealand registered 78 kicks. They won each game comfortably.That series saw Aaron Smith, Ben Smith and Beauden Barrett – although the latter was only an impact replacement – continue to establish themselves in the international fold. And such tactics have survived an overhaul of personnel following the 2015 World Cup. Over 13 matches since the tournament, New Zealand have kicked 285 times. Opposing teams have kicked 282 times.SAS GEO ERRORThis video is not authorized in your locationRELOAD YOUR SCREEN OR TRY SELECTING A DIFFERENT VIDEO read more

Five things we learnt about rugby in September

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Slippery: Sean Maitland fumbles the ball against Samoa (Getty Images) Japan play a fusion of Super Rugby and Test rugby. Solid yet rapid set-piece mixed with short sharp passes in midfield. Against Ireland, Japan used ‘channel one’ ball on virtually every scrum. It went in and out quicker than a prorogued Member of Parliament.Slick hands: Kotaro Matsushima spreads the ball for Japan (Getty Images)Other than the All Blacks, their back-line passes the ball smoother than any other team in the World Cup – especially in midfield. Their outside-centre and back three stay well connected, meaning that they rarely pass the ball further than ten feet. The result is few big loopy passes in midfield and a greater chance of successfully moving around the defensive ‘edge’.Japan were worth every minute of their victory, and it may not be their last. They’re top of their pool and have Scotland to come.Incorrect decisions, using playback, are inexcusableThe officials at the World Cup have so far taken more hits than any of the openside flankers at the tournament. In fact, the officials have had it worse than any of the players. At least the players don’t have to worry about taking kicks to the head or the body, whereas the officials took a boot to the windpipe from their own organisation.It seems unfair to criticise referees, as their job is actually impossible. It’s like being a single parent with 30 kids: you simply can’t keep an eye on everyone. But when an incorrect decision is made with the use of TV playback, it is inexcusable, and we must be allowed to criticise it.Flashpoint: David Halaifonua and Tomas Lavanini during Argentina v Tonga (Getty Images)That Tomas Lavanini’s corner-flag tackle on David Halaifonua was judged legal, was wrong, just wrong. You can tell me a thousand times that he used his arm but I will not concede, because I have eyes.Rugby has a certain ethos when it comes to criticising officials and in real time we must have utmost sympathy for them. But when they get wrong using replays, it is fair game.Uruguay made us smileIt’s very easy to become overly negative as a rugby supporter. Complicated laws and interpretations, the game becoming overly dependent of money, and residency rules are just a few of the reasons that the sport seems a bit fraught at the moment.Blue tune: Uruguay players celebrate with fans after the Fiji win (Getty Images)Then you see Uruguay beat Fiji and everything changes. To see a squad containing semi-pros rolling over big household names is magical. It makes you remember why you fell in love with the game in the first place.Match report: Fiji 27-30 UruguayUruguay’s tackling was old school. Not old school like taking a player’s head off, old school by going low and going face-cheek to bum-cheek. Whilst the rest of the world was debating what a high tackle was, Uruguay ignored the whole issue and just went low. Then they got up and went low again. It was amazing. It was like watching 15 Dan Lydiates.So, the next time you get fed up with your club not being able to afford another £1m winger or your team’s new shirt costing £100, just flick on Uruguay v Fiji and enjoy rugby again. From back-row battles to morale-boosting victories, Paul Williams looks at key talking points from the past monthcenter_img Why aren’t players wearing gloves at the World Cup?Japan is humid. On average 79% humidity in September. Add another 21% to that and you’re living like Nemo. But despite all of the handling problems that we have seen so far in the competition, few players are wearing gloves. It is a strange situation.Rugby has made massive strides over the past decade with strength and conditioning, in-game technology and GPS etc, yet the kit they wear remains the same. Even stranger, the kit remains the same regardless of the conditions.Blast from past: Ireland great Brian O’Driscoll sports gloves back in 2002 (Getty Images)Golfers, tennis players and NFL athletes all adapt their kit to the conditions, yet rugby does not. It is understandable that the half-backs and centres may not want to wear gloves, as you do lose some touch and feel, but it seems like a no brainer for those players whose primary role is carrying.The Wales back row beat the bestIf you’re Welsh, you’ve long held a suspicion that somewhere in Australia there is a giant voodoo dragon. And when the match clock strikes 75 minutes, a load of Wallaby supporters begin kicking the dragon in the nuts.For once, and at the most important time in this four-year cycle, that didn’t happen – Wales saw the game out at the World Cup in Tokyo. It was a fantastic match between the two most evenly balanced teams of the past decade and was arguably the game of the tournament so far.Match report: Australia 25-29 WalesOver the past ten years there has been little difference between the squads. If there has been an advantage, it has usually been in the back row, where both teams have, on occasion, delivered an extra 5% to tip the balance.Front jumper: Justin Tipuric wins a lineout against Australia (Getty Images)In Japan, that was once again the case. Josh Navidi, Justin Tipuric and Aaron Wainwright were more than the equal of the always impressive Michael Hooper and David Pocock. Tipuric was immaculate on the ground and in the air, where he has become Wales’ go-to jumper at the front of the lineout – not just for quick back-ball.Navidi once again morphed into flesh scaffolding, managing to hold up and then drop some big Australian structures. Whilst Wainwright looked like he’s been playing Test rugby for 15 years and doesn’t quite understand what all the fuss is about.To compete with Pocock and Hooper is to have a feather in your cap, to beat them is to have a golden eagle perched on your head.Related: The rapid rise of Aaron WainwrightJapan win prettyJapan are no longer giant killers; they have become serial killers. Their win over Ireland was the second in their series of rugby murders, and the most exquisitely executed yet.The victory alone was remarkable, but the manner of the victory will live long on YouTube. When Tier Two teams haul down a genuine Tier One nation, it is usually ugly. There’s always a dodgy try thrown in there, a lucky bounce, a red card or some weird rugby quirk. But that isn’t how Japan beat South Africa in 2015, nor Ireland in 2019.Match report: Japan 19-12 Ireland Keep track of events in Japan with our Rugby World Cup home page.Follow Rugby World magazine on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.last_img read more

Rugby’s Greatest: Michael Lynagh

first_imgNothing he did could match that day and the subsequent final victory over England at Twickenham, but he continued to impress on the international stage right up to the last days of amateurism, scoring 17 points in his final Test – one of 12 as Wallaby captain – against England at the 1995 World Cup. Rugby World once played paintball with Lynagh and he splattered us in every game. His reactions were always a cut above and thank goodness he “dodged a bullet” eight years ago when suffering a near fatal stroke. He’s a staunch supporter of the Stroke Association.Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Unerring: Lynagh kicks for Saracens in 1998 (Getty)Nicknamed Noddy, Lynagh then played three seasons in the English Premiership with Saracens, bowing out with victory in the 1998 Tetley’s Bitter Cup final.

He would sit in public areas of hotels so that people would talk to him and deny him the time to get nervous. His strategies certainly worked because he retired from Test rugby as the world’s record point-scorer with 911, a figure since surpassed by only eight players.He was only 21 years old when he played outside Mark Ella on the Wallabies’ Grand Slam tour of 1984, and his distribution, measured tactical kicking and ability to never look rushed marked him out as a special talent.By the 1991 World Cup he was a world-class fly-half, and showed in the closing minutes of the Dublin quarter-final against Ireland that he possessed leadership skills to go with his clear thinking. Spurning a drop-goal attempt, he called a backs move that would win the game rather than draw it, and Lynagh himself went over for the crucial score. “Cometh the hour, cometh the man,” said head coach Bob Dwyer.

M+R & Rally bring digital Benchmarks Study to UK

first_img Tagged with: benchmark Digital Research / statistics The study has been running in the US for 14 years, and this year sees more than 200 US charities taking part. Next year, for the first time, UK charities have the opportunity to take part and benchmark their digital fundraising and campaigning data against other UK charities as well as the US market. Those interested in participating are now invited by Rally and M+R to register their interest. “In order to drive radical change we need to know how we’re doing compared to the sector. Not because we will be happy to achieve average or benchmark performance, but so we can establish what needs our attention and where we can do better. I’m really excited to be working with M+R and with UK charities to provide the UK sector the information and data that I know will help kick-start the acceleration in digital fundraising and campaigning.” In line with the US Study, UK analysis will incorporate key data points for email, social media, mobile and web traffic. The final Study is due to be published in 2021, and will include data from 2019 and 2020 to offer a snapshot of the latest trends as well as changes over time. It will be available at no cost to the whole sector. Participants in the Study will receive early access to the results, a personalised report for their organisation, and the opportunity to go through that data with a consultant to contextualise and discuss trends. Paul de Gregorio, founder of Rally said: Advertisement “We started the Benchmarks Study so long ago that we called it the eBenchmarks Study, because that was the cool way to indicate something was digital. At the time, we had fewer than 30 charities involved, and the only people who used Facebook were college students. What hasn’t changed is the need for data to ground our decision-making – Benchmarks allows us to evaluate world-shifting events like the 2016 election or Covid-19 and contextualise them for non-profits in a way that is intelligible and actionable.”  348 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis M+R & Rally bring digital Benchmarks Study to UKcenter_img Melanie May | 6 August 2020 | News AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Matt from M+R commented: M+R is bringing its digital Benchmarks Study for charities to the UK for the first time, in partnership with Rally.

January Crop Report Friday has New Release Twist

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News January Crop Report Friday has New Release Twist January Crop Report Friday has New Release Twist Facebook Twitter The January crop report will be issued by USDA Friday and there is great anticipation to see the final 2012 production figures. But there is also a new twist with this report. It is the first time that the release comes at noon eastern time instead of early in the morning before floor trading starts, and that’s cause for some concern according to senior market analyst for Water Street Solutions, Arlen Suderman.“That’s going to give the opportunity for full volume trade. The concern of course is for high frequency traders where the computers are set to read the headline will be able to react in tenths of a second vs. farmers and end users needing to take this massive mountain of data in and try to respond while high frequency traders are already doing so. So that leaves them at more risk and a lot of concern. How will it go this first time around at the new time, although we’ve had the market open in recent months during trading, just at an earlier hour.”Suderman says there is a pattern in the last 6 months of fearing bearish surprises in the government reports, so there has been heavy liquidation leading up to them. The January report in particular is known for surprises.“In fact five out of the last six years we have seen daily limit moves in corn, three to the down side, two to the upside, as a result of surprises in this January report. Traders are very cautious about establishing any positions.”Starting Tuesday it’s expected the major index funds will begin an approximately 5-session run of rebalancing, “and generally that’s expected to lead to selling of Chicago wheat, selling of soybeans, selling of soy oil, buying of soy meal, depending on the fund. But that’s kind of the average of it all.”But Suderman says a lot of that has been expected and is already priced into the market.[audio:|titles=Jan report twist] SHARE Facebook Twitter SHARE By Andy Eubank – Jan 7, 2013 Previous articleProposed Food Safety Rules Released by FDANext articlePeterson Has No Plans to Work on Farm Bill Without Commitment from Leadership Andy Eubanklast_img read more
