Looks Like Apple is Finally Ready for Push Notifications: AIM and BeejiveIM Go Live

first_imgTags:#Apple#mobile#news#Product Reviews#web The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technology Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces Just this morning, our own Sarah Perez wondered if Apple wasn’t ready for push notifications yet, as only a few push enabled apps had made it into the App Store so far, but as is so often the case in our business, only a few hours later Apple first allows the AIM instant messenger (iTunes link) into the store, and now BeejiveIM (iTunes link), a multi-network IM app that was extensively demoed at Apple’s developer conference two weeks ago, has also arrived in the App Store as well. We are still waiting for a number of other apps with support for push to be allowed into the store, but it clearly looks like Apple has now opened the floodgates and more apps will probably follow soon.Works as AdvertisedWe got a chance to test both apps and both work just as advertised. For the AIM app, for example, the delay between sending a message and a notification popping up on our phone was usually under five seconds and sometimes almost instantaneous. Push, by the way, is enabled both for the free AIM app, which features ads, and the $2.99 paid version which is ad-free. One problem we noticed, though (and the same goes for the Associated Press news app with push), was that clicking on ‘view’ in a pop-up notification only open the app, but didn’t take us to the actual message. We almost wonder if this is something Apple’s API doesn’t support, as this seems to be common among the push apps we have seen so far. BeejiveIM is a bit pricey at $9.99, and the price might go up to $15.99 later, so if you really want this app, which supports, Windows Live, AOL, Yahoo, Google Talk, Facebook, MySpace, ICQ, and the Jabber protocol, not is probably the time to buy it. The one IM protocol this app misses support for Skype chats, though we are hoping for IM+ with support for push notifications (iTunes link to the free version) to be allowed into the store in the next few days. Finally!We are very excited to see the first new batch of push notifications in the App Store, though we would still like Apple to make a few changes to the way the iPhone handles these messages (including the ability to set a ‘quiet time’ during which notification are ignored). However, as long as Apple doesn’t allow applications to run in the background, push notifications are the best alternatives and we are looking forward to seeing what developers will do with this new feature.center_img What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … Related Posts frederic lardinoislast_img read more

Seized MT Badr Sets Sail from Burgas ReFlagged and Renamed

first_imgzoomImage Courtesy: GNMTC The Libyan-flagged crude oil tanker MT Badr that was seized by Bulgarian authorities in 2017, has been renamed and taken over by Bulgarian-based oil and gas contractor Bulgargeomin, the General National Maritime Transport Company of Libya (GNMTC) said in an update, stressing the transfer of ownership was illegal. As informed, the ship left Burgas anchorage on December 28, 2018, with a new crew on board, with the sailing permission issued by the Bulgarian Marine Administration and provisional Panama-flag certificate. GNMTC said that the provisional flag was revoked by Panama’s Maritime Authority a day before the ship left the port, slamming the actions as illegal.The sequence of events followed Badr’s seizure by Bulgarian border police on December 21, while at Burgas anchorage, and subsequent removal of the ship’s crew from the vessel.The ship had been detained by the Port Authority of Burgas since November 2017 over an alleged unpaid mortgage to Bulgargeomin. The company denied the claims that it owed a USD 9.23 million mortgage on the crude oil carrier, saying the mortgage was falsified. In January 2018, the Bulgarian Supreme Court ordered the vessel’s release, however, the vessel remained in detention ever since.Furthermore, according to the court documents, dated November 2018, the translation of which was provided by GNMTC to World Maritime News, the Supreme court cancelled the order for the seizure of the ship, and ordered Maritime Administration to compensate GNMTC damages for legal proceedings.As disclosed,  the court decided that BGM did not have corporate legal status that allows them to be a valid party in any court procedures, being a consortium of three companies Moran West Ltd, Moran Trade and Tectona Ltd.Separately, press office of Bulgargeomin said in a statement that all the documents seeking damages and MT Badr as collateral were legitimate, in line with the contract from 2013 signed by Hristina Ivanova Stamova, liquidator of the state owned Bulgargeoin EAD and Bulgargeomin.The company added that it was the only bidder in the subsequent official public auction for the sale of MT Badr, which was awarded to Bulgargeomin LTD in the presence of both sides of the case.“As a legitimate owner of MT Badr by virtue of award of ownership certificate (Write of Ownership) on movable property (MT Badr) dated at August 30, 2018, entered into full legal force on September 15, 2018, and not subject to appeal, Bulgargeomin changed the flag and register as the new owner of the ship. On December 13, 2018, the Panamanian Maritime Authority issued a provisional registration certificate for MT Badr with a registered new owner “Bulgargeomin Ltd” DZZD, and a new name Bdin,” the statement reads.GNMTC claims the letter of award was forged and that the order did not enter into valid legal force.“The basic starting activities of the auction as well as some of the formalities and documents concerned were finally revoked by the District Court of Bourgas on 21. Dec 2018 which makes the whole auction invalid and the vessel need to be considered as not sold at all. Unfortunately, the judgment is dated on 21 but it was visible as text on 27 of December,” GNMTC further stressed.On the other hand, GNMTC claims that the reflaging was based on “misleading documents” as Bulfarfeomin claimed it was the new owner, which GNMTC denies to be true. The company noted that the process is underway of returning the ship to Libyan flag registry.“From 21 to 27 of December, all relevant authorities were informed of all the details and were officially informed about these illegal actions – the Prosecution, the Ministry of Justice, the Ministry of Internal Affairs, the Border Police, the Marine Administration and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs,” GNMTC said, adding that the transfer of the vessel possession is being appealed.The company added that an appeal process was also underway against Marine Administration’s sailing permission, which GNMTC described as “wrongful and unlawful.”“We, Libyan Navigator Limited, as legitimate and valid ship-owner if the vessel Badr, will require and seek only one thing-the pure and real justice from the Bulgarian judicial system and the relevant informational judicial authorities and courts,” the company further noted in a statement.World Maritime News Stafflast_img read more

Henry pleased with Monacos appointment of exdistance runner

first_imgAS Monaco manager Thierry Henry has backed the club’s decision to appoint Bouabdellah Tahri as a member of the medical staffThe Monégasques have brought in the former distance runner in order to aid the players with mental preparation and their respective injury problems as they bid to turn around their disastrous start to the 2018/19 campaign.Currently, Monaco are 19th in Ligue 1 with just three wins from their opening 16 matches.Henry’s own arrival as the new head coach has done little to change their fortunes with Monaco winning just two games under the Arsenal legend.Now Henry hopes the appointment of a 2009 World Championship bronze medallist will have the desired impact.“I didn’t know him personally, but I think it is a good thing for the club,” said Henry, according to Fox Sports.“We know what he achieved in his professional career. It’s great for the club, he’s not the only one who just joined us in Monaco.“Every team needs it. We had one at Arsenal, one at Barcelona, they are everywhere. That’s it.”Neymar responds to PSG criticism with a stunning winner Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 14, 2019 Despite all the backlash he got today at Parc des Princes, Neymar responded by scoring a stunning winner vs Strasbourg.We all knew that Neymar’s…Monaco will take a trip to the Groupama Stadium on Sunday to face Lyon, who are fourth in Ligue 1 and qualified for the Champions League knockout stages on Wednesday by drawing 1-1 at Shakhtar Donetsk.And Henry is well aware of the challenge that awaits his Monaco side in what will be their first Ligue 1 game for two weeks after last weekend’s fixture against OGC Nice was postponed due to riots in Paris.“We have to play this game now,” added Henry.“Winning two games in a row is just anecdotal. You know that we couldn’t play our game against Nice and it may have been better for us to have another win.“That’s what I would have hoped for. We’ll play away once again. It’s going to be a tough game in Lyon.“It is never easy to play them away especially when they just went through in Champions League.”The Lyon-Monaco game will begin at 21:00 (CET) on Sunday.last_img read more

Felanis family yet to get justice

first_imgFelani . File PhotoAlthough seven years have elapsed since the killing of Bangladeshi girl, Felani, by members of Indian Border Security Force (BSF) along the border, justice has not been served to her family yet, says UNB.Felani, who used to work as a domestic help in New Delhi, was shot to death by the BSF members while returning home crossing the barbed-wire fence along with her father along Anantapur border point in Kurigram district on 7 January, 2011.  Later, BSF troops hanged her body on the barbed-wire fencing at the border. Felani’s death triggered a huge global outcry as a picture of Felani’s body, which was hanging from the barbed-wire upside down, went viral. The BSF men handed over the body a day after her killing.Following the public criticism, BSF started investigation into the incident and submitted a charge-sheet against its constable Amiya Ghosh who shot the girl.However, a special court constituted by the BSF had acquitted Amiya Ghosh of the charge on 19 August, 2013.Later, in the wake of widespread criticism of the acquittal, BSF decided to revise the murder trial. However, another judicial court upheld the previous verdict and acquitted Amiya Ghosh again on 2 July, 2015.Following this, Felani’s father Nurul Islam with the help of human rights organisation Manabadhikar Suraksha Mancha (MASUM) filed a writ petition with the Supreme Court of India.Later, Indian Supreme Court bench, headed by the chief justice, show-caused several bodies concerned, including the home ministry, in this regard.”I’m still optimistic that I’ll get justice from the Indian apex court,” Felani’s father said while talking to UNB.Lawyer Abraham Lincoln, who stood for Felani during the BSF trial, also expressed the hope to get justice as the Indian apex court accepted the writ petition.Meanwhile, Chairman of Ramkhala union parishad Abdul Alim Sarker demanded that 7 January be declared as the Border-Killing End Day.last_img read more

Finders Sellers

October 20, 2006 Register Now » Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box. Starting a business on eBay is about more than being a seller. It’s about being a savvy buyer. Traditional retailers send their buyers around the world looking for items that will appeal to their customers. But you can start right from your own region to source the products that will successfully launch your business on eBay.Garage sales and thrift stores are great ways to find castoff items at dirt-cheap prices. If you have a knack for guessing the market value of the deeply discounted goods, you can score big with collectors and other buyers online who are willing to pay the item’s true cost. One strategy is to narrow your purchases to souvenirs unique to your area with appeal to people around the country or even worldwide. Watch for marked-down items at local retailers, or ask if you can sell their overstock for them.Serendipity also plays a part. Robert Sachs noticed collectible Elvis Pepsi bottles at several gas stations in Memphis, Tennessee, in 1998. Sachs, 48, bought them for 99 cents each and sold them on eBay for an average price of $15 each. Sachs (eBay User ID: rosachs), owner of RKS Solutions LLC in Memphis, now runs a shoe store on eBay.An even more convenient marketplace might be your own home or those of your friends and family. Everyone has products stored away that have outlived their usefulness or been replaced by updated versions. The better an item’s condition, the better your chance of creating bidding online.Time can change how much you value your own collections, making them another good source for products. Curtis Chan (eBay User ID: cxc273), an avowed movie lover in State College, Pennsylvania, owned about 20 VHS movies. But as DVDs became the dominant medium, Chan, 33, decided to sell off those tapes before they became obsolete. “I said to myself, ‘When DVDs get big, VHS will be worthless,'” Chan says. His collection sold in one lot to a single buyer for almost $100.Now, Chan finds that DVDs have an even shorter shelf life. “Studios will make a new version of a movie with more features,” he says. “When I find out, I get rid of the version I own.” Chan stays on top of new releases on websites such as DVDfile.com and DVDtimes.co.uk, giving him time to sell his copies before the news of a release reaches the general public.When you exhaust your personal possessions or get tired of driving to garage sales, you can still shop locally online. Scan the listings on online trading marts, such as Craigslist.org, for quality used goods, and keep up with new listings in your local newspaper’s classified section or PennySaver publication. Large corporations and universities can be other surprising sources, as they often sell surplus equipment through on-site retail locations or online auctions.Eventually, many entrepreneurs start looking for a steadier product supply to create a niche on eBay. This requires an important shift in your approach to online selling, says Michael Miller, author of Absolute Beginner’s Guide to eBay. Miller recommends writing a business plan that spells out what you want to sell and why, identifies suppliers, and compares anticipated expenses with income. “eBay is one business that’s really easy to get into,” Miller says. “That’s [both a] good thing and a bad thing.”Julie Monahan is a writer in Seattle whose articles on small business and emerging technology have appeared in numerous consumer and trade magazines.
