    Seoul (AFP) - Samsung announced Wednesday the $1.7 billion sale of stakes in four affiliates and a $2.0 billion share buyback as the South Korean giant steps up restructuring efforts ahead of a generational ownership succession.

    The sale of its petrochemical and defence units to the Hanwha conglomerate, which has major petrochemical holdings, is expected to be finalised in the first half of next year, Samsung Group said in a statement.

     

    Squeezed by Chinese rivals like Xiaomi Technology [XTC.UL] at the low end and Apple's iPhones at the top, Samsung's share of the smartphone market has also shrunk year-on-year for the last three quarters, leading to speculation that mobile business head J.K. Shin could be on the way out.

    "People are very uneasy; even the senior management are asking around about what might be coming," said one Samsung employee.

    Apple fans are still a good six months away from testing the gadget maker’s new smartwatch, but details are ticking out — thanks to the geeks building apps for the device.

    In preparation for the Apple Watch’s 2015 debut, Apple released a guide for software engineers, with what to expect when building apps.

    This is what the geeks have to say about the upcoming $349 smartwatch after reviewing the developers kit, which hit the Web on Nov. 14: Watch users will be tethered to their phones.

    Yes, Apple CEO Tim Cook made it clear when announcing the Apple Watch in September that it will work closely with the owner’s iPhone. But developers say they are surprised just how tethered it will be.

    Et tous les dix ans
    La menstruation gagne un an
    C'est le contraire pour la durée de l'allaitement
    A l'âge de pierre, c'était six ans
    De nos jours, c'est environ quelques semaines
    Pourtant, rien ne vaut le sein en bouche
    Voilà ce que l'on aime
    Si émouvant quand on le touche
    800 millilitres de lait par jour
    A boire, aux seins, je fais la cour
    Progestérone, prolactine
    Ocytocine, dopamine
    Les hormones mettent en relation
    Et dans chaque corps, une transformation
    Mais le lait des femmes
    Est aussi pollué que le reste
    Dont nous portons les vestes
    Et notre société nucléaire
    Qui à chaque seconde impulse des cancers
    1 sur 4 pour la prostate, chez l'homme
    1 sur 8 pour les seins, pour les femmes
    Et dès 1867, avec Nestlé, le lait en poudre
    De l'artificiel, c'est le coup de foudre
    Comme les seins de substitution
    Pas aussi beaux que les vrais nichons
    Ce fut d'abord, avant toute utilisation

    People are still out buying the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus but there are already rumors about an iPhone 7. While the next Apple flagship won't be coming until next year, as per Apple's annual product cycles, spec details and release rumors are already making its rounds on the web.

    First, there are speculations that the iPhone 7 will be called an iPhone 6S instead. However, there are also rumors that Apple is considering the option to drop the "S" naming convention as it has only been perceived negatively. Rhe next iPhone could also be called the iPhone Air, seeing as how Apple is managing to make an "Air" version of the Macbook and the iPad.

    But it isn’t the perfect Leatherman — far from it. The iPhone 5 and 5S are small, fragile, and run out of juice before you’ve finished that first cup of coffee. Logitech’s Case+ helps MacGyver the iPhone in every way that matters. If you're running around with an iPhone 6 or 6 Plus, you'll have to wait for your turn at the accessory game. Thankfully plenty of us haven't parted with our 5/5S, because it's still so darn good.

     

    The Logitech Case+ is a transformer... just without so many moving parts or explosions. Originally sold in the U.S. as a $200 all-in-one system, Logitech now sells the parts individually in Australia, the UK and Europe.

    Les crimes
    Contre l'humanité
    Sont partout
    Dans une société sans aucune humanité
    Toujours l'on dénonce
    Mais ce sont des effets d'annonces
    Contre le crime
    Mais il y a toujours des crimes
    Contre la drogue
    Mais c'est la cocaïne qui finance les banques
    Contre la faim
    Mais des millions et millions de gens meurent de faim
    Contre le viol
    Mais chaque jour, des femmes sont victimes de viols
    Comme la réalité qui rigole
    De toutes ses volontés molles
    Contre la colonisation
    Mais
    Départementalisation comme assimilation
    Sont justement le visage de la colonisation
    Comme en France de l'outremer
    Qui servit, pour la Guyane, pour les essais nucléaires
    4/2/1794
    Abolition de l'esclavage aux Antilles
    Mais vite, le colonialisme reprit ses billes
    Avec feu ( 1769-1821 ) Bonaparte qui abolit l'abolition
    Et cet héritage de la ( 1792-1795 ) nationale Convention
    Et rapidement revint le Code noir de feu ( 1619-1683 ) Colbert

    Avec trente grammes
    De LSD-25, le diéthylamide de l'acide lysergique, LSD
    Qui joue avec des dés
    Quand dans le cerveau, c'est l'alarme
    L'on peut aisément fabriquer
    Trois cent mille doses
    D'acide lysergique pour délirer
    Car cela génère, dans l'encéphale qui ose
    Des stimulations des récepteurs de la sérotonine
    Qui hallucinent des images gaies ou moroses
    En rapport à son histoire idiosyncrasique
    Car la carte d'un cerveau , qui ose
    Et donc en plein délire, est toujours identique
    C'est toujours le brouillage
    C'est parfois l'orage
    Entre perception et imagination
    C'est la roulette russe chimique
    Trop incontrôlable encore, pour être une arme étatique
    En découvrant cette bombe atomique encéphalique
    A la grande puissance psychique
    Feu ( 1906-2008 ) Albert Hofmann
    Fit très fort, même sans aucun caméraman
    Mais quand le thalamus
    Et les lobes frontaux aux idéaux
    Sont en hyperventilation, c'est le mauvais voyage
