Google doodle today paid homage to one of Malaysia’s national dishes, nasi lemak. KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 31 — Nasi lemak, a Malaysian favourite and one of its national dishes, is being celebrated in a Google doodle today. The 40-second animated titled “Celebrating Nasi Lemak” featured the preparation of the ubiquitous dish. The video showed the coconut-milk infused rice being prepared with the traditional basic condiments of hard boiled eggs, sliced cucumbers and sambal with anchovies and peanuts, and served in various ways, with a sunny-side up egg, chicken, and wrapped in banana leaves. The official Google Doodle page describes the “humble delicacy” as a “rich, fragrant and spicy dish” that is the unofficial national dish of Malaysia, widely eaten year-round, and particularly at brea

Augmented reality startup Nreal was a hit at this month's CES event, with some even calling the device a worthy challenger to the Magic Leap One.However, the company's path to success in the US may not be as smooth as it first seemed, as gaming giant Epic Games has lodged a legal challenge that could ground the AR upstart before it even takes off.In a opposition filing entered in August of 2018 with the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), Epic Games, the company behind the Unreal Engine (which many developers use to create AR and VR experiences), as well as gaming hits like Fortnite and Gears of War, is challenging Nreal's right to use the name as a trademark for its wearable AR system in the US.Now, after months of silence, Nreal,...

Social media companies such as Facebook and Twitter could be required by law to share data with researchers to help examine potential harms to young people’s health and identify who may be at risk. Surveys and studies have previously suggested a link between the use of devices and networking sites and an increase in problems among teenagers and younger children ranging from poor sleep to bullying, mental health issues and grooming. However, high quality research in the area is scarce: among the conundrums that need to be looked at are matters of cause and effect, the size of any impacts, and the importance of the content of material accessed online. According to a report by the Commons science and technology committee on the effects of social media and screen time among young people, c

Information technology (IT) services businesses are paying in excess of $107 on average for top-of-page AdWords on Google, emerging as the most costly businesses to market online, according to new research. SEO Shark has compiled the average cost of getting an ad to appear at the top of Google for popular keyword searches across 21 industries, from retail and aged care. The results reveal some sobering realities for businesses trying to market their services in the IT industry, with average monthly search volumes of just 7,780 for popular terms such as “IT support” and “IT consulting firms”. With figures like that, it’s not surprising business owners like Nik Devidas, managing director of Rock IT, are forgoing AdWords altogether. “With low search volumes and people knowing how to run

Apple's (NASDAQ:AAPL) earnings per share reached an all-time high of $4.18 in its fiscal first quarter, edging out analyst expectations and blunting the blow from tumbling iPhone sales. Total revenue fell 5% from the prior-year period, with iPhone revenue slumping 15%. This per-share earnings growth was not driven by the company's much-touted services business, which grew revenue by 19% to $10.9 billion and posted a gross margin of 62.8%. Instead, it was a lower tax bill and Apple's massive share buyback program that pushed the bottom line higher. Without those two items, profits would have tumbled even mo...
