BERLIN (Reuters) – The customers of software group SAP <SAPG.DE> are suffering severe declines in revenue and earnings while at the same time facing intensifying pressure to hike IT spending to go digital, a survey showed on Monday.

The poll of SAP’s German-speaking user community found that nearly three-quarters were experiencing sharp drops in revenue. At the same time, over four-fifths said the coronavirus pandemic made digital transformation a more pressing task.

“At the centre of this crisis is the need for businesses to do more with less,” said Marco Lenck, chairman of the German-speaking DSAG user group that commissioned the survey.

The DSAG, which represents 3,700 businesses, is an influential lobby that has called on SAP to make it easier to upgrade systems traditionally hosted on site to run in remote datacentres.

Such cloud hosting makes it easier for firms to scale up or pare back

The “iPhone 12” could include a faster Face ID authentication than currently offered, a leaker claims, as well as an enhanced version of digital zoom that is assisted by advancements in computational photography.

In the days before Apple is anticipated to launch a new collection of iPhones, more leaks about what to expect are surfacing by various sources. One such leak from a well-established leaker centers around the photographic capabilities of the inbound models.

According to a series of tweets from “@Pineeaks,” a Twitter account operated by Max Winebach, Apple is still planning to ship a “dynamic zoning algorithm” for the TrueDepth camera array. The algorithm would enable the Face ID biometric authentication system to acquire a user’s face at a faster rate, which will shave off fractions of a second from the entire Face ID unlocking process.

The tweet list, spotted by MacRumors also claims Apple

Britain’s top antitrust enforcer laid out plans for a new regulator, saying the largest tech companies would face scrutiny for any transaction, no matter how small.

Andrea Coscelli, who leads the Competition and Markets Authority, said he wanted to see a “special parallel regime” for the tech giants that have strategic market status. The new program could also apply a stricter test before clearing any deal, Coscelli said in a speech delivered remotely to a New York conference.

The CMA is increasingly voicing concerns about internet giants swallowing up smaller firms and the new system would automatically have oversight of deals like Facebook Inc.’s purchase of Giphy. The renewed effort to roll back the dominance of these companies comes as the U.K.’s departure from the European Union gives the CMA leeway to devise new approaches to antitrust.

“For me, the case for regulation is

If two markets are pretty much guaranteed to make money over the next decade separately it’s artificial intelligence and cannabis. Together, the pair could form a perfect storm thanks to COVID-19 driving demand. Cannabis is more popular than ever thanks to lockdowns and vape technology and the market is predicted to be worth $76.3 billion by 2027). A.I. adds new business benefits for the industry that the COVID boom could mean big changes ahead for regulation.

Adrian Holguin, CEO of CannaShark Consulting, started consulting for cannabis companies in 2017, and in three years he says the changes have been dramatic. Previously a Silicon Valley alum working in intellectual property and patents and trademark work, Holguin, now works with entrepreneurs and startups entering the

Park Seo-Jun is now the face of BYS cosmetics

ALL IN MY HEAD – Monique Toda (The Philippine Star) – October 1, 2020 – 12:00am

I have personally met Korean superstar Park Seo-Jun. It was for only 15 minutes, and it was an interview and not a social gathering, but it counts, right? Approximately around the same time last year, I was face to face with this man of many fans’ fantasies. He was in the country as the global endorser of Bench. I hope he didn’t get the impression that I was staring at him, but I marveled at his flawless skin with a little bit of envy. Coupled with his casual and easy demeanor, I thought that he was quite cool.

A year later, Park Seo-Jun and I meet again — though not personally.  It is unfortunately not meant to be. He has been announced as the

Mobile device management outfit Jamf has revealed it will be rolling out an updated version of Jamf Connect 2.0 that will overhaul the identity management tool, including the addition of using Touch ID and Face ID on an iPhone for user authentication on Macs.

Revealed during the virtual Jamf Nation User Conference on Tuesday, Jamf Connect 2.0 is a major update of the company’s account and identity management tools for large networks. The system, which enables for a user account to be provisioned to a device and authenticated throughout a corporate network, has been given some upgrades that take advantage of cloud computing and alternative authentication systems, including elements users are already familiar with using.

Version 2.0 will use a single cloud-based set of identity credentials for users, which will be used throughout the network’s hardware. In theory it will help produce a more seamless authentication experience for

WARSAW (Reuters) – Poland’s former health minister, who had become synonymous with the country’s fight against COVID-19 before his resignation last month, has tested positive for the disease, website Onet.pl said on Monday, as daily infections hover near record levels.

Lukasz Szumowski was rated Poland’s most trusted politician at the height of the national lockdown in April. He resigned in August after scandals surrounding the purchase of ventilators and masks dented his reputation. He denies any wrongdoing.

Szumowski could not immediately be reached on Monday to confirm the Onet.pl report, which said that members of his family had also been infected. The health ministry declined to comment on the report.

Poland weathered the first wave of COVID-19 infections that swept Europe in the
