Spotify to Entertain Through Thai Mobile Music
To cash in on the digital music trend, leading media companies in Thailand are seeking overseas partners to expand their downloading services for both international and local listeners.
GMM Grammy's International Business Managing Director Surachai Sensri said that 3G cellular connections would improve following the auctioning of 3G licenses by the regulator.
The company plans to partner with two leading global digital music streaming services which are Sweden's Spotify and France's Deezer. With this technology, smart device users can enjoy mobile Internet services, including digital music downloading, streaming and broadcasting.
Spotify was founded in Sweden, in 2006 and raises its headquarters' flag in the Denmark Soccer Jerseys
UK with offices in Paris, Oslo, Madrid, Amsterdam and New York. It counts more than 10 million registered users worldwide.
Surachai said that next year Spotify would likely come to Thailand, where smart-devices are on demand, while Deezer might follow later. GMM Grammy has already developed its supporting technology, equipment and human resources for this coming service.
Last month, Apple's iTunes Store Thailand was introduced to local music lovers. GMM Grammy also provides its music content on this online music store.
More than 10,000 songs produced by its artists can be found at iTunes stores located in many major markets such as Singapore, Malaysia, the Philippines, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Sri Lanka, Macao, Brunei and Hong Kong.
Prior to this online music store's arrival in the region, GMM Grammy provided digital music downloads on iTunes in the U.S., Europe, Japan and Australia. Its popular songs have been downloaded over one million times.
The company expects to see 500,000 audio downloads via the new iTunes Store in Thailand this year, generating at least Bt15 million in sales.
RSiam, the country music business of RS, is also seeking strategic partners in Laos and Cambodia as the music and entertainment group bids to expand its operations regionally.
RS Executive Vice President overseeing RSiam Soopachai Nillawan, said the company had been France Soccer Jerseys
in talks with several firms in the telecommunications and broadcasting industry in both countries. It expects to strike the first deal in Laos.
The company plans to introduce a new service in the two countries, namely digital music downloads via mobile phones, and hopes to keep piracy problems to a minimum.
Minister Paradis Unveils the Made-in-Canada Techno
The Honourable Christian Paradis, Minister of Industry and Minister responsible for the Canadian Space Agency (CSA), unveiled Canada's contribution to the James Webb Space Telescope, successor to the Hubble Space Telescope.
The CSA is contributing a two-in-one instrument that will direct the telescope precisely, allowing it to study stars and planets forming in other stellar systems. The highly advanced, made-in-Canada technology will be delivered to NASA for integration into the Webb telescope on July 30.
"Canada has a proud legacy in space and we are once again pushing the frontier of what is possible. These two outstanding technologies are perfect examples of how Canada has secured its world-class reputation," said Minister Paradis. "Our Government is committed to ensuring the long-term competitiveness and prosperity of such a vital economic sector."
"Imagine the challenge at hand here: to design and deliver technology capable of unprecedented levels of precision to conduct breakthrough science on board the largest, most complex and most powerful telescope ever built," said Steve MacLean, President of the CSA.
"The Webb telescope will be located 1.5 million kilometers from Earth- too far to be serviced by astronauts like Hubble was. At that distance, the technology simply has to work. This is the outstanding level of excellence Canadians are capable of achieving. It's something for all of us to be proud of."
Slated for launch in 2018, the James Webb Space Telescope is a joint project between NASA, the European Space Agency and the CSA. The Webb telescope will examine the first stars and galaxies to form after the Big Bang; the formation of new stars; and extra-solar planetary systems capable of supporting life on planets like Earth.
Canada is providing Webb's Fine Guidance Sensor (FGS), and the Near-Infrared Imager and Slitless Spectrograph (NIRISS). Both Wholesale Toms Glitters
were designed, built and tested by COM DEV International in Ottawa and Cambridge, Ontario, with technical contributions from the Universite de Montreal and the National Research Council Canada, and scientific guidance of the FGS science team. The CSA's contribution guarantees Canadian astronomers a share of observing time once the telescope launches.
The FGS consists of two identical cameras that are critical to Webb's ability to "see." Their images will allow the telescope to determine its position, locate its celestial targets, and remain pointed to collect high-quality data. The FGS will guide the telescope with incredible precision, with an accuracy of one millionth of a degree.
The NIRISS will have unique capabilities for finding the earliest and most distant objects in the Universe's history. It will also peer through the glare of nearby young stars to unveil new Jupiter-like exoplanets.
It will have the capability of detecting the thin atmosphere of small, habitable, earth-like planets Toms
and determine its chemical composition to seek water vapour, carbon dioxide and other potential biomarkers such as methane and oxygen.
The FGS-NIRISS science team is jointly led by Dr John Hutchings of the National Research Council of Canada (NRC) and Professor Rene Doyon from the Universite de Montreal, Director of the Mont-Megantic Observatory and member of the Centre de recherche en astrophysique du Quebec (CRAQ).
The team includes astronomers from: COM DEV; the NRC; Saint Mary's University; the Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI); the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich (ETH Zurich); the Universite de Montreal; the University of Rochester; and the University of Toronto.
Ramsey: Arsenal and FAW opposed Team GB call-up
Aaron Ramsey has revealed that his decision to accept a call-up from the Team GB football squad went against the wishes of both Arsenal and the Football Association of Wales (FAW).
Gunners manager Arsene Wenger last year described the Games as “not a real football tournament” and insisted that appearing in the tournament would put too much strain on players’ fitness.
However, the midfielder says he did not want to miss out on the opportunity to win a gold medal in front of a home crowd.
"We had a meeting in which he gave his opinion and I gave mine," he told the London Herre Nike Free Run 3
"The Olympics is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, plus it is the chance to play in an international tournament, an experience I have not had.
"I’ve followed the Olympics all my life and though I did some athletics at school, I never dreamed about being an Olympic athlete and I never thought about taking part because there isn’t normally a Great Britain football team. So to be part of it and perhaps win a medal is exciting."
The FAW had previously expressed concern over the implications of a unified Great Britain side for their independent membership of Fifa but Ramsey insisted the tournament can only benefit Wales.
"We had one meeting with the FAW and they said it was up to us. They made it clear how they Herre Nike Free Hyper TR
felt but said the ball was in our court," Ramsey added.
"We are all mature enough to make our own decisions and we are here.
"The number of Welsh players in the squad shows how far Welsh football has come in the last few years and the experience of being involved in an international tournament can only be good for us."

Knap 1000 fulgte Randers-exit
Efter en d?rlig anden halvleg tabte Randers HK med syv m?l i Rusland og er ude af Europa Cuppen.
Med et nederlag p? 23-30 til russiske Zvezda har Randers HK udspillet sin rolle i Cupwinners Cup allerede i ottendedelsfinalen.
Randers var rejst til Rusland med en beskeden Dame Nike Free 5.0
etm?lssejr fra den f?rste kamp p? hjemmebane i rygs?kken, og den viste sig alts? langt fra at v?re tilstr?kkelig.
Det s? ellers fornuftigt ud for ?stjyderne, da spillerne forlod banen efter f?rste halvleg. Da var stillingen nemlig 15-15.
Knap 1000 fulgte Randers-exit
Men efter pausen gik det galt for tr?ner Jan Leslies tropper, der faldt helt fra hinanden og tabte anden halvleg med syv m?l foran knap 1000 tilskuere i Zvenigorod lidt vest for Moskva.
Dermed vandt Zvezda dobbeltopg?ret med 55-49 og sender Randers ud af pokalvindernes Europa Cup.
Det er bem?rkelsesv?rdigt, at Randers' 23 m?l blev fordelt p? hele 11 spillere, men tyske Nina W?rz form?ede som Herre Nike Free Run 2
den eneste for alvor at f? skudt sig ind p? den russiske m?lvogter.
W?rz scorede syv gange.
Troede ikke det var muligt
Luke Donald sikrede sig s?ndag f?rstepladsen p? den europ?iske golfpengeliste. Han vandt ogs? den amerikanske.
Verdens nummer et i golf, engelske Luke Donald, blev historisk s?ndag, da han sikrede sig f?rstepladsen p? European Herre Nike Free 7.0
Tours pengeliste for 2011.
I oktober vandt han ogs? pengelisten p? den amerikanske PGA Tour, og dermed er Luke Donald den f?rste i historien til at have vundet pengelisten p? de de to st?rste Tours i samme ?r.
- Jeg er ekstremt stolt
Triumfen blev en realitet, da Caroline Wozniackis k?reste, Rory McIlroy, kom ind i klubhuset ved European Tour-s?sonafslutningen Dubai World Championship og kunne konstatere, at han ikke vandt turneringen
Dette var ellers et krav, hvis McIlroy skulle true Donalds f?rsteplads.
- Jeg er ekstremt stolt. Dette er noget, jeg har t?nkt p? meget i den sidste halvdel af s?sonen, siger 34-?rige Donald if?lge Reuters.
Troede ikke det var muligt
- Jeg havde ikke troet, at det var muligt at vinde pengelisten begge steder. Det var ikke en nem uge for mig, men det blev afslutningen p? et fantastisk ?r, siger Donald, der er noteret for fire turneringssejre i 2011 samt et hav af topplaceringer.
En s?dan en af slagsen fik han ogs? i Dubai Herre Nike Free Run 2
med tredjepladsen. Med samlet 16 slag under par sluttede Donald tre slag efter den spanske vinder Alvaro Quiros.

Succes kr?ver point mod Holland
Den hollandske profil Arjen Robben kan volde sin direkte modstander alvorlige problemer, mener Lars Jacobsen.
Lars Jacobsen har spillet over for mange gode topspillere i sin karriere, men p? l?rdag kan det blive f?rste gang, han st?r over for Bayern München-profilen Arjen Robben i EM-kampen mod Holland.
- Heldigvis har jeg aldrig pr?vet at st? over for Robben f?r.Han ser da ubehagelig ud.
- N?r man ser ham i fjernsynet, s? er han Nike Free 7.0 Mænd
en type, der kan afg?re kampe p? egen h?nd og har gjort det flere gange i ?r, s? det er noget grimt noget, siger Lars Jacobsen.
FC K?benhavn-spilleren er allerede begyndt at lade op til opgaven mod Holland, og h?jrebacken har en idé om, hvad der venter Danmark.
- Jeg har sk?vet lidt til de kampe, de har spillet, og de resultater, de har leveret, men det er f?rst i denne uge, jeg begynder at spore mig ind p?, hvem jeg kan risikere at spille over for - hvilke typer kunne det v?re?
- Og s? g?r jeg selvf?lgelig og forbereder mig lidt med de holdkammerater, jeg har, og dem som eventuelt kunne komme til at spille omkring en selv.
- Jeg kan snakke med dem om, hvordan opgaverne skal tackles, forklarer han.
Succes kr?ver point mod Holland
Kampen mod Holland er den f?rste af Nike Free Dame
tre gruppekampe ved EM, hvor Danmark ogs? skal m?de Portugal og Tyskland.
- Det kan godt v?re, det er lidt klichéagtigt, men hvis man ser p? de sidste mange slutrunder, s? er det meget f? hold, der g?r videre, hvis de ikke f?r et resultat i den f?rste kamp.
- Selvf?lgelig kan det lade sig g?re, selv om vi ikke skulle f? point i den f?rste kamp, men vi skal p? tavlen hurtigst muligt, og hvis kan komme det i den f?rste kamp, skaber vi os et godt udgangspunkt, siger Lars Jacobsen.
The WikiMobile Encyclopedia, an app designed to view Wikipedia articles, has a cute dog mascot that chases its tail while the program fetches articles. Unfortunately, the dog is the best aspect of WikiMobile.
The app is straightforward enough; the search engine is integrated with Wikipedia. In addition to searching you can view bookmarked articles, see a random article, or look at popular articles. Though I have no idea what might motivate someone to read Wikipedia articles at random, the other two features are somewhat useful. The popular articles are divided into several categories: In the News, Celebrities, Sports and Games, Movies and TV, The Arts & Culture, and Science & Technology.WikiMobile formats each article into pages that you browse through. I'm Nike Free Dame
not sure of the reasoning for the formatting, however--I prefer to read in the top-down format that most people are used to seeing on Wikipedia. WikiMobile also doesn't provide any information about how many pages an article consists of, so it's difficult to gauge how long a given article is going to be.One particularly odd design choice: Images are not embedded in the pages. Instead, you must load them up from the menu to browse through them, again in the divided-page format. From the menu you can also load up the Table of Contents, as well as the Quick Facts, the information you typically see in the box at the right side of some Wikipedia articles. In general, the whole process of jumping from page to page to look at information proves cumbersome.The single Nike Free Mænd
most annoying feature of WikiMobile, though, is that it displays the occasional pop-up trying to take you to the Android Market to download other Bonfire Media apps--an obtrusive and obnoxious interruption. Ultimately, this pop-up is what makes the app unattractive.WikiMobile is yet another app that is less useful for most people than the Wikipedia mobile Website is.
