Sony Square NYC, Sony's brand showroom, is looking for great names for two of our aibo puppies. The puppies moved into Sony Square NYC on August 23, and have had a great time meeting new friends and acclimating to their environment. But they need names!

Our first pup, who has beautiful blue eyes, is always curious. aibo is frequently found exploring its surroundings at Sony Square NYC. It loves people and will sit and offer its paw on command and just wants to be loved!

Our second pup has brown eyes and is always playing and looking for adventure. aibo's favorite toy is its aibone, which it loves to fetch when asked. This pup is a little shyer than most, but very sweet and inquisitive.

There are two ways to help name our puppies. The first is to stop by Sony Square NYC, located at 25th St. and Madison Avenue in New York City, and submit your naming ideas. You will also be able to meet and play with our aibo puppies while you are there, and even snap some selfies with them. If you are unable to visit our brand showroom, you can still get in on the fun! Go to Sony Square NYC's twitter any time between now and September 23rd and submit your suggested names. Sony Square NYC will then post the top four names on the Sony Square NYC twitter page for all to vote on. The final names will be announced on October 3 and celebrated at 25 Madison Ave from Noon – 5pm.

First introduced in 1999, the latest design of aibo is the sixth generation of Sony's beloved companion robot. Unlike previous versions, it pairs cutting-edge robotics with a new, cloud-connected artificial intelligence (AI) engine and advanced image sensors, giving aibo the ability to learn and recognize faces. As aibo interacts with people over time, it develops its own unique personality through everyday interactions, enabling it to remember what actions make its owner happy and form a deep bond with members of the household.

The aibo First Litter Edition is now available for purchase in the U.S. through Sony's website, Consumers can now pre-order Sony's exclusive aibo product and service bundle, and early purchasers will begin receiving their new aibo companions starting in December 2018 – just in time for the holidays.

No two aibo companion robots are the same. Each owner's approach to raising their aibo shapes its personality, behavior and knowledge, creating a unique environment for growth. In fact, aibo is able to learn new tricks through owners' interactions, experiences with changing seasons and different events. Not content to sit and wait to be beckoned, aibo will actively seek out its owners and can recognize their faces. It can also detect words of praise and smiles, as well as react to being petted or scratched on the head.

Bitmain Announces Next-Generation ASIC Chip, New Mining Machine will be Available Soon

Jihan Wu, CEO and co-founder of Bitmain Technologies Ltd., announced Bitmain's next-generation ASIC chip BM1391 for mining cryptocurrencies using the SHA256 algorithm at the World Digital Mining Summit in Georgia today. Mr. Wu also revealed that Bitmain will soon launch a new generation of mining machines equipped with the BM1391 chip.

The new ASIC SHA256 algorithm acceleration chip carefully built by Bitmain uses one of the world's most advanced semiconductor manufacturing technologies, 7nm Finfet. The ASIC chip integrates more than a billion transistors and is optimized for maximum efficiency. Thanks to its unique circuit structure and low power technology, it is stable and more efficient. Mr. Wu said tests have shown that the chip can achieve a ratio of energy consumption to the mining capacity that is as low as 42J/T.

At his keynote speech at the summit, Mr. Wu said mass production of the 7nm chip will begin and be applied to the next generation of Bitmain's Antminer machines, improving the new miners in various performance indicators, in terms of power and power consumption, and enabling outstanding performance.

Mr. Wu also pointed out that blockchain technology has continued developing to the present day, noting that the technology's first decade has seen many difficulties, and that the future direction of development will center around applications of the blockchain. He said that as applications continue to develop, the industry's market capitalization as a whole will drive growth. Exponential growth in blockchain user traffic will at the same time require ever greater capacity in data processing, with hardware acceleration and parallel computing technologies being integrated with blockchain to help solve this problem.

Bitmain has been committed to the development and launch of high-performance computing chips. Since its establishment, Bitmain has independently developed and mass produced a variety of chips. In 2016, Bitmain took the lead in releasing and mass-producing 16nm chips, applying them to its Antminer S9 miner and other models. The Antminer S9 quickly occupied international markets with its high-computing power, low power consumption and strong stability, and has become a leader in the global mining machine industry. In addition, Bitmain's Antminer series of mining machines has introduced a variety of models that support different encryption algorithms to meet the global demand of different digital currencies.

As a world leading high-performance computing chip company, Bitmain has grown rapidly over the years. It now has multi-brand businesses including Antminer, Antpool, and Sophon. Bitmain's cryptocurrency mining machine has long been a world leader with a market share of more than 70%.

The 7nm chip reflects the R&D strength of Bitmain and further consolidates Bitmain's industry position. For the entire industry, this not only accelerates the development of digital currency mining but also sets a new benchmark for quality, providing miners with a better mining experience.

Huobi Founder Leon Li Meets With Vladimir Putin Advisor Sergey Glazyev

Huobi founder and CEO Leon Li and noted Russian economist Sergey Glazyev, an advisor to Russian President Vladimir Putin, met Monday at Huobi's Beijing offices to discuss blockchain technology, cryptocurrency and Huobi's potential place in Russia's financial marketplace. "The cryptocurrency industry is still booming and expanding, and almost every country on the planet is making an attempt to grow the crypto-space. If Huobi Group can set a good example for the market, it will be of great help to Russia's national legislation on blockchain cryptocurrencies," Glazyev said. "The combination of Huobi's experience to implement in Russia will have a positive effect on Russia's economic growth. Therefore, I believe this is a great opportunity to explore this area."

A noted supporter of blockchain technology, Glazyev also advocates the use of blockchain to support government affairs and to combat corruption and various types of financial fraud. "In some countries, blockchain technology has been used beyond digital assets and even in administrative processes, such as smuggling prevention, since this is the best technology for transaction transparency and risk prevention," he said. "Digital assets also enhances the development of blockchain technology. They are inseparably interconnected. I hope some advanced countries will use blockchain and digital technology in their national market organizations, because they can help make the money market more sustainable, transparent and less risky."


Is There Such a Thing as Being Too Dedicated to Work? Brandon Frere Says Yes, and It Could Be Hurting the Company

Running a business and making it into a successful enterprise takes a lot of dedication. But dedicating oneself entirely to a business is a quick way to burn out and lose out on a lot of the other things life has to offer. Brandon Frere, successful entrepreneur and owner of several businesses, advises business owners and CEOs -- new and seasoned, alike -- to be careful to not lose themselves to their work.

"I don't set alarms for work anymore, and I take time to enjoy myself with stuff like dirt biking. Years ago it was scuba diving," said Brandon Frere. It may seem like it's impossible to give too much time and effort to a business to make it reach its peak potential, but devoting 100 percent of emotional and mental resources on work deprives people of the other things in life worth living for. Going outside, sometimes literally, sometimes just out of a comfort zone, not only can reinvigorate a person but can highlight what the point of working so hard is all about. Being constantly buried under mountains of work causes unnecessary amounts of stress and doesn't allow for new experiences to come up that could be beneficial for personal and business wellbeing.

Limiting oneself to one type of experience is really one of the biggest ways to potentially harm a company in the long run, because new ideas will be that much harder to come by. While it may not be explicitly detrimental, it may starve the company of new ideas stemming from the CEO, the person best in charge to guide the company. It may mean only working a typical eight-hour workday instead of an 11-hour day, or actually taking a hard-earned vacation, maybe even cutting a day short to visit friends and family, but the potential rewards can be so good, they'll be worth the shorter hours. "Working on a thriving business can sometimes mean hard work on top of long hours, but that shouldn't be all someone works on. A thriving business needs a thriving leader, not just a surviving one," said Frere.

4 Apps That Provide a Crash Course For Learning Korean

I read once that Korean is the most difficult language for an English speaker to learn. I’ve been thinking about learning languages lately and I wondered what could make learning the hardest language easier. And then I thought: Apps! Apps are designed to make things easier, even hard things like studying and learning. So, I searched for Korean learning apps and found lots of them, like the ones on this list.

Best 10 Apps for Learning Korean by AppGrooves

I also found some others, and I thought maybe they would help someone out who was trying to learn Korean. So, here are a few that I liked! Keep in mind I gave each one about a day of usage. Nevertheless, it was enough to give my starting opinion.

Learn Korean Free with Learn Korean

First thing I thought to myself is that Learn Korean is very aptly named. It is a pretty simple app, with word-picture associations and flashcards. You can also listen to each word spoken, so you can practice your pronunciation. All in all, I thought this was a pretty solid app for anyone who’s just starting to learn Korean. I found it to be definitely useful if you’re just starting.

This app is for beginners, for sure. The lessons are not very in depth, so if you are an advanced learner, then a different app will definitely be better for you. But for what is and the fact my knowledge of Korean is practically zero, this is a very useful starting point.

Learn Any Dialect with Drops

What I found out in my research for Korean learning apps it that there are lots of different dialects in the Korean language. Basically mini-languages inside the language. So, I thought it was cool that Drops teaches specific dialects when you learn, that way you know you are speaking correctly. I don’t know how deep you want to go with learning, but if you want to understand the nooks and crannies of the Korean language, this definitely becomes useful.

Unfortunately, Drops is not totally free. If you want all of the features, then you will have to upgrade to pro. If you are looking to learn a language for free, I’d suggest sticking with Learn Korean and if you start feeling like you’re ready for the next level, then you should definitely move to Drops.

Get Ready to Travel with Learn Korean Phrasebook

Learn Korean Phrasebook is an app that I thought would be perfect for traveling to Korea! It is basically a dictionary that fits on your phone. If you need to ask the cost of something, or just for directions, you can search for the phrase in this book easily. It does have learning value, but I think the app’s main strength lies in getting the exact phrase on-the-go.

Although this app seems great, there is a small flaw. I found some translations to be a little bit funky. If you are looking for perfection, you won’t find it here. But I think a few mistakes are okay in the grand scheme of things. As I said, if you need a quick app to help you with your visit, this one is great. You might not get it 100% right, but it will definitely serve the purpose of creating an understanding.

Chat with Korean People with Eggbun

With Eggbun, you can join Korean chat rooms and get impromptu tutoring from Korean speakers. I think this is neat because maybe you will even make a friend! Plus, you’ll also learn Korean. So you basically get two for one. I managed to chat with a few people and although I obviously didn’t make long-lasting friends it was fun to see how good my social skills are. I always wondered what should I say first and in a way, it made the overall process fun and exciting.

There are no lessons to this app like the others, so if you are looking to learn Korean in a structured way, you should look elsewhere. There are also occasional server issues since the app is all online, but that is to be expected of any chat room. Eggbun is a solid app and definitely for those of you who love chatting with strangers.

I hope that these apps will help you on your journey to learn Korean, and I hope you enjoy Korea if you intend to visit. Even if you’re just planning to learn for the fun of it, the apps will surely come in handy. Good luck!

How to Create a Social Media Marketing Strategy

Many businesses admit to finding social media one of the hardest elements of digital marketing to conquer. We get it – in a world where number of likes and shares defines how popular a business is, brands understandably want to avoid a public hanging. But if you invest in creating a good social media marketing strategy, you can make a success of this.

Understand Your Objectives

Ask yourself - what do you want to achieve? Is it an uptake in sales for a particular product? Is it brand awareness? Is it sign ups to your marketing database? Work back from these goals and you can design your social media activity around this.

Know Your Target Market

If you have an existing digital marketing strategy, you should already know who you are targeting. This might be a few different demographics. Find out which social media networks are most used by these target demographics and design individual campaigns for each demographic on these platforms.

Nail your content

Your content should resonate with the demographic you are targeting. Personalise your content and keep it social for a better chance at engagement. Social media platforms are not the place for overly salesy posts. Aim to connect with followers on an informal level. Ensure your posts have a purpose – what do you want people to do? Make this clear.

Grow your followers

This won’t happen overnight, but you should be looking to steadily increase this over time. If you’re new to social media, make an announcement to your database in a newsletter or in some email marketing correspondence. Once set up, you can start following other relevant users, who may follow you back. Start with previous and existing clients and then follow users who show an interest in your industry (those who belong to social media groups etc). Post content worthy of being shared to reach wider audiences. Consider paid social media ads if you have a budget.

Exercise brand integrity

Invest time in managing engagement. Acknowledging posts and interacting shows you’re current and builds rapport. React to any negative posts with respect. Don’t delete them, but rather offer solutions, even if it’s to discuss their issue offline. It shows others that you care about good customer service.

Measure your performance

Social media metrics are good for showing you what’s working and what’s not. A tool like Google Analytics helps to show what traffic you have from social media and what they are doing when they land on your site. Tools like Hootsuite give you data and stats on social media activity by individual user.

Make It Easy for Yourself

Social media management is time-consuming, but you can make things easier. Tools like Buffer allow you to schedule your posts throughout the week, so you can set everything up on a Monday and let the posts go automatically at random times. You will still need to engage with posts, but you can set a promise to users, for e.g. ‘typically responds within 2 hours’ or ‘a business day’.
