Gullit Higuain is not a great fit for Chelsea

first_imgChelsea legend Ruud Gullit believes someone like Roberto Firmino would have been a much better striker than Gonzalo Higuain for the club.The Blues pulled off arguably the biggest coup of the winter transfer window by signing Higuain on a loan deal from Juventus until the end of the season.The Argentina international made his debut for Chelsea on Sunday in their 3-0 FA Cup win over Sheffield Wednesday at Stamford Bridge.But Gullit, who played as both a midfielder and forward during his playing career, is not convinced that Higuain’s playing style will suit Chelsea.The Dutchman believes Eden Hazard and Willian will not be able to provide the kind service Higuain needs and suggested that a player like Liverpool’s Firmino would have been a better call.“I hope I am wrong, I really do, but [Gonzalo] Higuain is an old-fashioned striker who needs crosses and, if he plays up front all the time, he will not see many balls there because of the way Eden Hazard and Willian play,” Gullit told BBC.Tammy Abraham, ChelseaChelsea hat-trick hero Tammy Abraham hopes for more Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Tammy Abraham hopes this season will be his big breakthrough at Chelsea after firing his first hat-trick for the club in Saturday’s 5-2 win at Wolves.“Those two always come inside, and dribble or shoot, and try to do things themselves. So they don’t need a player up there who is a target man, because Chelsea don’t use one and, under [Maurizio] Sarri, they never do.“Instead they need a centre-forward who can play in midfield too, and be effective on the ball as well as be a finisher inside the box. Roberto Firmino, who comes so deep for Liverpool, is the perfect example.“That is how Chelsea’s frontman has to play too, which is why I am not sure [Gonzalo] Higuain is the answer.“At the very least, he has a difficult job because, with the way they are set-up, he will not be able to play the way he wants.“We will have to wait and see, but Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud are both good strikers, and it has not worked out for them.”last_img read more

ATT earnings sees wireless growth in Q2 but video side continues to

first_img Share your voice 1 Review • Live TV streamer is stronger on channels, weaker on DVR 2:00 Now playing: Watch this: News • AT&T misses on revenue, loses more DirecTV Now customers Why you should say no to DirecTV Now Mobile Tech Industry 13 Photoscenter_img DirecTV Now continues to underperform for AT&T.  Rafael Henrique/SOPA Images/LightRocket via Getty Images AT&T met analyst expectations in its latest earnings report, even as struggles continued around the company’s U-Verse and DirecTV video unit. The technology giant added 335,000 phone users, the bulk of them coming on the company’s prepaid side. AT&T says it added 72,000 postpaid users, the more lucrative customers that sign up for its traditional monthly wireless service. By comparison, in the first quarter of the year, the company added 179,000 phone users, of which 80,000 were postpaid. Utilizing its deployment of FirstNet, a wireless network for first responders, AT&T says it has been able to upgrade its traditional wireless network and get it ready for 5G, which it plans to make commercially available nationwide during the first half of 2020. “The wireless side of the house, we’re feeling more and more confident every day,” said Randall Stephenson, AT&T’s chairman and CEO in a call with investors. Stephenson says the company has built out 60% of its FirstNet network thus far. The growth in mobile comes as its more premium DirecTV and AT&T U-Verse continue to shed users for its traditional satellite, cable and streaming DirecTV Now services. AT&T said it lost 778,000 premium video users, with an additional 168,000 users disconnecting from DirecTV Now as the company rolled out fewer promotions. AT&T warns that the losses could continue through the rest of the year as it still has 1 million users locked on two-year pricing promotions. The company is touting a new, forthcoming over-the-top streaming service called AT&T TV, set for trial in the third quarter of the year, as well as next spring’s HBO Max launch, as options to turn its video ship around. Read more: DirecTV Now vs. YouTube TV vs. Sling TV vs. Hulu and moreStephenson says HBO Max will have live sports, touting the NBA and MLB as two potential examples. While it is unclear exactly what AT&T TV will look like and how it will compare to the company’s other streaming services, Stephenson told investors that the company “will put our shoulder and our muscle behind AT&T TV.”WarnerMedia, the division that houses the Time Warner properties AT&T acquired last year, including Turner TV stations and HBO, had revenues of roughly $8.4 billion. Earnings per share were 89 cents for the quarter, exactly matching the estimates from analysts polled, according to Yahoo Finance. Revenues came in at $45 billion, slightly higher than the $44.85 billion analysts anticipated.   Samsung, LG, Motorola: How soon can we expect 5G phones?

Epsons 3D glasses simulate 80inch screen

first_img © 2012 PhysOrg.com At tech events, wearable displays that have showcased in the form of high-tech visors and chunky spectacles or goggles seem to draw measured responses—impressive inventions for private media viewing at home or on the go but silly-looking or even evocative of special-recovery shades for postoperative elderly outpatients. We noticed at least one reference to “grandma glasses.” Epson’s Moverio BT-100 Wearable Display do not look exactly like designer sunglasses but they do have loaded features for gadget collectors who do not think $699.99 is an unthinkable price. Explore further Epson packs features into new Android HMD More information: www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/jsp/Moverio/Home.do According to reports, the glasses have pico projectors that are able to create a virtual experience of up to 80 inches’ display at a perceived distance of about 16 feet. According to Expert Reviews, the headset has a tiny pico projector built into each arm, pointing inwards towards an angled mirror in each lens, which projects the image in the center of the wearer’s vision. The dark outer visor is semi-transparent, letting the wearer see surroundings without being distracted by them. The device carries 1GB of built-in storage. Users access downloaded content via the microSDHC card slot (4GB card included) There is built-in WFi connectivity; a lithium rechargeable battery provides around six hours of continuous use. Built-in earbuds provide Dolby Mobile virtual surround sound. Of all the features, much appears to be made of the Android name in Epson product descriptions, as “Android-powered Moverio glasses.” The glasses connect to a control module; this Android 2.2-based handheld device lets the user select the content to view. Moverio is running on an Android 2.2 platform with Adobe Flash support. Epson publishes the kernel and an SDK, but the company is requiring developers to submit apps to them for consideration rather than going through an app store. The good news is that Epson is interested in seeing more new Android-based applications and side-by-side 3D content for its Moverio BT-100. To help support application and content development for Moverio BT-100, Epson is offering programs for developers residing in the United States.Meanwhile, Epson’s end-user vision is to see the product adopted not merely for personal entertainment use but also for business and professional ends. Epson America’s Anna Jen, director of New Business Development, said the Moverio BT-100 may play a role in virtual training platforms, 3D-CAD environments, and visualizing 3-D design renderings.
