It’s difficult to narrow down everything that happened at CES this year. We met tons of promising new startups and went hands-on with brand new gadgets on the floor of the expo hall, nightly events and on our Hardware Battlefield stage.

1. Plume

This is a wearable device that tracks pollution around you – kind of like a Fitbit for air quality if you will. It tracks particulate matter (PM2.5), nitrogen dioxide, ozone, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), temperature and humidity. It can be clipped to a bag and is designed for people who live in big polluted cities.

10. 4K HDR OLED TV


There were so many TVs at CES that its hard to stand out. But Sony’s new TV for its flagship Bravia line actually looks pretty great. It’s a 4K HDR OLED TV that Sony is calling the A1E series. The TV has an edge-to-edge design and is stand-less — meaning it sits directly on the ground and has a back leg that it leans against. This also means it doesn’t have speakers. Sony says that sound will come from the screen itself using new technology it is calling Acoustic Surface.

Some 600 bitcoin mining computers have been stolen in Iceland, in what is being described as one of the biggest thefts ever in the small island nation.



A total of 11 people have been arrested so far after four burglaries in the Reykjanes peninsula. The computers are yet to be found and are believed to be worth almost £1.5m.

Icelandic media have dubbed the crime the “big bitcoin heist” and the thieves could potentially make more money if they use the computers to mine the cryptocurrency and then sell it. "This is a grand theft on a scale unseen before," police commissioner Olafur Helgi Kjartansson said, NBC reported. "Everything points to this being a highly organized crime." Bitcoin hit the news last year after its value increased by more than 20 times from below $1,000 to a peak of more than $20,000.

It is a digital currency that was created in 2009 by a mysterious figure using the alias Satoshi Nakamoto and can be used to buy or sell items. It doesn’t exist in physical form, there is no central bank and a record of each transaction, using anonymized strings of numbers to identify it, is stored on a huge public ledger known as a blockchain. The supply of bitcoin can only be increased by a process known as mining. For each bitcoin transaction, a computer owned by a bitcoin miner must solve a mathematical problem. The miner then receives a fraction of a bitcoin as a reward

A young woman amputated from the knee breastfed a 40-day-old infant who had lost his entire family in the bombings.




The UN Security Council has unanimously demanded a 30-day ceasefire in Syria, as new air strikes on the rebel enclave of Eastern Ghouta took the civilian death toll from seven days of bombing to more than 500.

With support from Russia, the Security Council adopted a resolution on the ceasefire to allow for humanitarian aid deliveries and medical evacuations, but the measure did not specify when the truce would go into the force beyond saying it should be "without delay."

After the council vote Saturday, Syrian warplanes backed by Russian air power launched new raids on a town in Eastern Ghouta, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

At least 127 children are among the 519 dead in the bombing campaign that the regime launched last Sunday on the rebel enclave, just outside Damascus, the British-based monitor said.

At least 41 civilians were killed in Saturday's strikes, including eight children. Russia has denied taking part in the assault.

Quickly following up on the vote, French President Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel will speak by phone Sunday with Russian President Vladimir Putin to push for the truce to take hold "in the coming days," the Elysee palace said in a statement.

To this end, France's Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian will also go to Moscow on Tuesday.

The UN vote was initially expected to be held Thursday but was repeatedly delayed as diplomats were locked in tough negotiations to avoid a veto from Russia, which is militarily supporting President Bashar Al-Assad.

"Every minute the council waited on Russia, the human suffering grew," US Ambassador Nikki Haley told the council after the vote, accusing Moscow of stalling.

"As they dragged out the negotiations, the bombs from Assad's fighter jets continued to fall. In the three days, it took us to adopt this resolution, how many mothers lost their kids to the bombing and the shelling?"

Russian Ambassador Vassily Nebenzia rejected accusations of foot-dragging, saying that negotiations were needed to arrive at a demand for a ceasefire that was "feasible."

"What is necessary is for the demands of the Security Council to be underpinned by concrete on-the-ground agreements," he said.

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, who has described Eastern Ghouta as "hell on Earth," said the ceasefire must be "immediately" implemented.

To win Russia's approval, language specifying that the ceasefire would start 72 hours after the adoption was scrapped, replaced by "without delay," and the term "immediate" was dropped in reference to aid deliveries and evacuations.

In another concession to Moscow, the ceasefire will not apply to operations against the Islamic State group or Al-Qaeda, along with "individuals, groups, undertakings and entities" associated with the terror groups.

That would allow the Syrian government offensive to continue against Al-Qaeda-linked jihadists in Idlib, the last province in Syria outside the control of Damascus.

French Ambassador Francois Delattre said it was now important to ensure the ceasefire turns into reality on the ground, vowing to be "extremely vigilant... in the hours to come and the days to come."

"Nothing would be worse than seeing this resolution remain a dead letter," he said.

Russia has vetoed 11 draft resolutions throughout the Syrian conflict to block action that targeted its ally.

In November, it used its veto to end a UN-led investigation of chemical weapons attacks in Syria.

In Eastern Ghouta, news of the UN vote on the ceasefire was greeted with a shrug.

"I don't think this decision will be implemented. It will be respected neither by the regime nor Russia," said Abu Mazen, a resident of Douma, Eastern Ghouta's main town.

"We can't trust Russia or the regime. We are used to their betrayals," he added.

Control of Eastern Ghouta is shared between two main Islamist factions, while Syria's former Al-Qaeda affiliate is also present.

Russia has been pressing for a negotiated withdrawal of rebel fighters and their families like the one that saw the government retake full control of Syria's second city Aleppo in December 2016.

But all three rebel groups have refused.

World leaders have expressed outrage at the plight of civilians in Eastern Ghouta.

The enclave is surrounded by government-controlled territory, and its 400,000 residents are unwilling or unable to flee the deadly siege.

In one of the many unfolding dramas at a field hospital in Douma, a young woman amputated from the knee breastfed a 40-day-old infant who had lost his entire family in the bombings.

Food supplies have been running dry, with bread no longer available on local markets.

The cornered rebels in Eastern Ghouta have been firing back into Damascus, where six civilians were wounded Saturday, state media said.

Around 20 people have been killed in eastern districts of the capital since last Sunday, according to state media.


More than 340,000 people have been killed and millions driven from the homes in the war, which in March enters its eighth year with no diplomatic solution in sight.

Sridevi passed away on Saturday night after a cardiac arrest, confirmed her brother-in-law Sanjay Kapoor. She was 54. The first female superstar of Bollywood was reportedly with her husband Boney Kapoor and daughter Khushi at the time of death.



Sridevi passed away in Dubai early Sunday morning after a massive cardiac arrest. Social media is being flooded with condolences as the news of her death spread.

Sridevi, known for her versatility as an actor, made her Bollywood debut in 1978 with "Solva Sawan". But it was only after five years with Jeetendra-starrer "Himmatwala" that she gained commercial success.

Before her entry into Bollywood, the actor had been a known face in South Indian films. She made her debut as a child artist in in Tamil film "Thunaivan" in 1969. She also worked in Malayalam, Telugu and Kannada films.

Sridevi was awarded the Padma Shri, the fourth highest civilian honour, in 2013.





Sridevi's beguiling eyes, scintillating screen presence and acting prowess soon made her one of the most sought-after actors in the Hindi film industry. While films like "Mawaali" (1983), "Tohfa" (1984), "Mr India" (1987) and "Chandni" (1989) kept her at the top in the box-office game, her outings like "Sadma" (1983), "ChaalBaaz" (1989), "Lamhe" (1991), and "Gumrah" (1993) earned her critical acclaim.

She went on a hiatus for 15 years after starring in home production "Judaai", co-starring her brother-in-law Anil Kapoor and Urmila Matondkar. It was director Gauri Shinde's "English Vinglish" in 2012 that marked Sridevi's comeback.

Her nuanced performance as a middle-class woman, learning to speak English to feel accepted by her family, won accolades, and the film was also a commercial success. Last year, she was seen in revenge-drama, "Mom", opposite Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Akshaye Khanna. She also shot for a special appearance in superstar Shah Rukh Khan's upcoming film, "Zero", which releases in December.

Minutes after the news of her death broke, many Bollywood actors like Amitabh Bachchan, Priyanka Chopra, Sushmita Sen, Sidharth Malhotra and Riteish Deshmukh took to Twitter to pay their condolences.

The price volatility is still a problem for merchants, said Rainey in a WSJ interview.

Bitcoin may succeed in the future as a payment system, but it may take years, said the CFO of PayPal John Rainey in a WSJ interview.

Given the volatility of Bitcoin right now, it’s not a reliable currency for transactions because if you’re a merchant and you have a 10% profit margin, and you accept bitcoin, and the very next day bitcoin drops 15%, you are now underwater on that transaction," said Rainey.

Rainey went on to present the Venmo payment platform, which has social media features and appeals to Millenial consumers for the ability to share purchases. At the same time, crypto payments are still tending toward anonymity, and in fact, more users are trying to obscure their crypto holdings.

Currently, the advantage of PayPal is the wider merchant acceptance, as well as payment speed:


"It’s important to make it a more frictionless experience: 60% to 70% of all shopping experiences begin on mobile in the U.S., so there is a ton of friction in typing in your credit-card number and address that can be eliminated. With PayPal One Touch, with a simple fingerprint or click of a button you can follow through with a purchase," added Rainey.

Crypto coins are seeing a slower adoption, but the most current round of expansion comes from Litecoin, expecting to popularize the literary approach in 2018.

At the moment, the Bitcoin network has survived the unexplained transaction overload of the past months, and there are less than 4,000 pending transactions, with a speed of more than 28 transactions per second. Because of the high network power, a single transaction has become more expensive not only in terms of minor fees but in terms of electricity: more than 749 KW/h of electricity go toward one transaction.
The cost of electricity is only partially covered by miner fees, and it is difficult to trace who absorbs the real cost. Miners usually cover their costs by selling the block rewards, and thus most of the electricity bill is paid by Bitcoin speculators.
But there is a more worrying reason for the low network load: there are less overall Bitcoin transactions:

Another Indian Army camp has been assaulted, this time at Sunjuwan. Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) fear mongers sneaked into the camp in the early hours of Saturday morning, entered the family quarters of Junior Commissioned Officers (JCOs) and began terminating at 5 am. 

Starting at 1 pm, the loss of life remained at two jawans slaughtered and six, including the girl of a JCO, were harmed. The region organization has solicited schools inside 500 meters from the armed force camp to stay close. Terminating should have halted at 6 am, however there aren't any reports about whether the terrorist(s) are still stayed. The armed force is wanting to get them alive, however the task is in no way, shape or form over. It might take a couple of more hours, and the likelihood of more losses can't be precluded. 

Home Minister Rajnath Singh has addressed DGP of Jammu and Kashmir with respect to the occurrence. Media reports discuss the zone being cordoned off; they say the armed force will talk in regards to a "fitting reaction" at the time and place. Another surgical strike might be requested; the armed force will challenge Pakistan's atomic blustering; et cetera. Correspondents are requesting to know how the fear based oppressors figured out how to dive so deep into Indian region — as though this is occurring out of the blue as though Pathankot was spot on the fringe. The media is hypothesizing that Pakistan is "utilizing fear based oppressors since it's terrified of India". They are calling the psychological oppressors the 'Afzal Guru Squad of the JeM'.

No point in chasing elusive peace with Pakistan; better if India pays back in same coin
