Android Challenge

For Apple’s “History of the cattle earnings”, the capital market seems to sniff out the extremes meet in this. Insiders believe that Apple shares fell nearly 7% in after-hours, direct factor is the decline in gross margin, the deeper reason may come from the challenge of Google Android camp.

Jobs for Android’s public comments, to some extent a signal. Trying to catch up for the Google Android system, Jobs said, opening and closure of the debate is just a smoke bomb, “We think Android is very divided, and this differentiation is still growing. Apple’s efforts to develop an integrated model allows users to avoid to act as system integrator. ”

Jobs pointed out that many camp Android handset manufacturers, including HTC and Motorola, the two largest companies have installed a proprietary user interface for Android to their experience with the popular distinction. In addition, Android application store too many users and developers will also cause more problems.

“Google had with manufacturers to customize the interface early, so as to get more support for OEM manufacturers.” Analysys International analysts said. In fact, Google has begun to consider the integration of Android, the recent trade rumors, the new version of the Android3.0 system, Google will take a unified user interface to achieve the integration objectives.

However, top mobile phone makers, said such practices are unlikely to achieve at present, a feasible solution is the “Google Phone will be in the form of a unified mobile interface, but only the manufacturers using Android system does not enforce, or have two sets of System. ”

In any case, Google has begun action to address issues raised by Apple. Wang Yang think, Android also has a problem to be solved is the application software. Data show that Apple’s App Store has more than 30 million lines have been applied, the number is more than 3 times the Android Market and Android applications, or distributed in different platforms.

Don’t Kill Your Dog: Understand The Dog Food Ingredients He’s Eating

Sunday, January 21st, 2018

By Kelly Marshall

It is often confusing when you go to buy dog food to try to identify what is important on the label and why some foods are priced so much higher or so much lower than the rest. It is important to buy a good quality food that meets your dog’s needs, but the quality of the food is not always guaranteed by the price. Many of the very high priced dog foods or ‘gourmet’ foods are no more nutritionally balanced than the premium foods offered by large or small dog food companies. Typically the very low priced dog foods should be avoided as they are largely made up of filler type ingredients and little protein and very little nutritional value.

What’s On The Label?

The ingredient portion of the label must list all the food items and additives that are contained in the food. In most developed countries the items in dog food are controlled by a federal agency to ensure they are appropriate for consumption and are not a danger to the animals. The substances in dog food must by generally recognized as safe, or GRAS. No diseased meat, improperly processed meat or vegetable material or other items may be used in the food.

The items listed on the ingredient portion are listed by natural weight at time of processing, starting with the heaviest item and working down. That means that the meat is weighed in its moist, natural state just like the soy meal or ground wheat will be listed in their natural dry state on the ingredient list. Since processing removes most of the water, especially in dry food, the first ingredient on the list may not be the predominant ingredient in the final dry kibble. In reality most dry foods will list beef, chicken or meat as the first ingredient but on full analysis of the final dry ingredient there will be far more of the wheat fillers in each kibble. Avoid dog foods that list animal or meat by-products as the main ingredients as these have almost no nutritional value for the dog.

Since there is almost no way to know how much of the original ingredient is in the final result the information on the ingredient label is not as useful as it may seem. The better information that is provided on the label is the actual analysis of the feed, which is based on the final product and its actual breakdown.

The analysis will list the crude protein, carbohydrates, fat, vitamins and minerals. Generally a dog should have between 21 and 26% protein in the diet depending on their age and level of activity. The more active a dog is the more protein they will need to sustain energy levels. Puppies and senior dogs should not be fed high protein diets as it can cause problems in puppies with bone growth and may cause excessive weight gain in older, more sedate dogs.

How much to feed?

If you are feeding a good quality premium dry dog food it is important to follow the feeding recommendations. Poor quality foods will have you feed more and will lead to increased mess to clean up. Premium dry foods usually are fed by current body weight of the dog as well as the growth stage of the dog. Be sure to feed the correct food for the correct growth stage to optimize the benefits to the dog.

If you are in doubt about the correct feeding amounts or are concerned that your dog may be gaining or losing weight due to the food immediately seek the advice of your vet. Often rapid weight loss or gain has nothing to do with the food but may be a serious health concern or even a genetic condition.

About the Author: Vets also recommend feeding your dog from an elevated dog feeder to reduce the amount of air ingested when eating.

Does The Duty Of Utmost Good Faith Apply To Claims

Tuesday, December 26th, 2017

By Frank Egan – LAC Lawyers

Originally the duty of utmost good faith was a common law concept which applied directly to contracts of insurance. The introduction of the Insurance Contracts Act 1984 (the Act) brought about a fundamental change to this duty – the Act states ‘a contract of insurance is based on the utmost good faith and there is implied in such a contract a provision requiring each party to it to act towards the other party, in respect of any matter arising under or in relation to it, with the utmost good faith.’ Today the duty of the utmost good faith must be looked at from both the common law and statutory perspectives with respect to obligations owed by insurers to insureds once a claim has been lodged under an insurance policy. Insurance contracts are subject to the duty of utmost good faith because each party to the contract must act with the utmost good faith with respect to their dealings with one another. This duty is not to be confused with the duty of disclosure which deals with the pre-contractual obligations of the parties and is otherwise dealt with under the Act.

Effectively the duty of utmost good faith is now implied in contracts of insurance which previously was not the case at common law. At common law the strict application of the duty might have resulted in an insurer entitled to avoid a contract of insurance ad initio (from inception). The difference now is that as an implied term in a contract of insurance a breach of the duty by the insurer can now give rise to a claim for damages in contract in relation to the settlement of a claim. As the meaning of ‘utmost good faith’ is not defined in the Act reference must be had to some of the cases in this area. What is important to keep in mind is that duty focuses on the word ‘utmost’ and that this is the measure of good faith relied upon with fairness and honesty being part of it. Of course the duty has to be viewed objectively and it applies globally to all aspects of the relationship between an insurer and insured encompassing the payment and settlement of claims. There is an argument that the duty may have some precontractual force although this does not have much currency. Given that we are talking about an insured being able to sue under the Act for damages for breach of an implied term of the duty of utmost good faith, this begs the question: whether or not an insurer could be held liable in damages where they have exhibited bad faith? Suffice to say, in the USA bad faith claims have been around for many years and perhaps this area of the law may develop in Australia in future although the courts have expressed otherwise.

One of the vexing questions which remains to be asked is whether in certain circumstances an insured’s duty to act with good faith extends to third parties along with the utmost good faith. Recent cases suggest that there can be a breach of a duty of utmost good faith even where the insurer has not acted dishonestly and where third party interests are involved. As matters currently stand there is no tort of bad faith and a breach of the duty can only result in a liability for damages for breach of contract. In a recent case the New South Wales Court of Appeal ruled that an insurer has a duty of good faith and fair dealing not only to an insured but to those who benefit under a policy. The court said that the duty of good faith applies where the policy is at least for the indirect benefit of the insured. Despite this there remains considerable doubt as to whether the duty of utmost good faith extends to third parties as the duty that the court is talking about here is one of good faith and fair dealing.
