» Why You May See Cheaper Royal Caribbean, Carnival Cruises
23/05/22 21:00 from micro

Cruise lines Royal Caribbean and Carnival face a problem, but there may be a silver lining, according to a new report.

Since cruising from North America returned in July 2021, both Royal Caribbean (RCL) - Get Royal Caribbean Group Report and Carnival  (CCL) - Get Carnival Corporation Report have taken a measured tone when discussing their business.

Executives from both companies have made clear that the road back from a complete shutdown to normal operations would be long.

In the most recent quarter, however, both cruise lines had spoken positively about their booking trends.

"We continue to see strong demand for leisure travel and cruising," Royal Caribbean Chief Executive Jason Liberty during his company's first-quarter earnings call

"The robust secular trend of experiences over things that propelled our business in the past years is now recovering toward pre-covid levels. Consumers are now reengaging with the world, and as a result spending on travel in 2022 is set to outpace prepandemic levels with consumers planning to travel more frequently."

Carnival Chief Financial Officer David Bernstein made similar, albeit more tempered, comments when his company reported Q1 results in its late-March investors call.

"[Our] cumulative advanced book position for the second half of 2022 is at the lower end of the historical range," he said. 

"However, we believe we are well situated with our current second-half 2022 book position given the recent improvement in booking volumes, coupled with closer in booking patterns and our expectation for an extended wave season. 

"We continue to expect that occupancy will build throughout 2022 and return to historical levels in 2023."

That's all optimistic, but a new report from Truist Securities equity research analyst C. Patrick Scholes suggests that pricing and booking trends may face some major headwinds.

Cruise Lines May Need to Lower Prices

Cruise lines -- Royal Caribbean and Carnival were not called out specifically -- "will have to lower prices in the second half of 2022 to fill ships because cumulative bookings are 'in a deep hole' compared with 2019 levels," Travel Weekly quoted the analyst as saying.

"Consumers are clearly responding to the attractive prices/promotions, most notably for sailings within 90 days, especially in light of record room rates for land-based hotels and home rentals. However, prices are nowhere near where cruise lines want them to be, even more so with rising food and fuel costs," Scholes said in the report.

The author also noted that while the cruise lines may need to lower their ticket prices, they have been spending onboard at record levels.

"Travel agency executives speculate that there is a shifting paradigm to give up more on the headline ticket price in order to get people on board to spend," the report said.

Royal Caribbean's CEO did not comment on pricing during the earnings call, but he did mirror what the report said about onboard spending.

"Strong demand for cruise experiences continue to translate into robust onboard revenue performance for us across all categories from casino, beverage and shore excursions to Internet, retail and spa," he said. "[As] a result, we continue to see increased penetration of precruise purchases, which is leading to significantly higher total spend per guest."

Carnival Pushes Back on Pricing

While the report suggests that nonluxury cruise lines (which would include Carnival and Royal Caribbean) would need to lower ticket prices, Carnival was very clear in its earnings call that it was holding the line on pricing.

"Our revenue management teams held on price when we experienced an impact on bookings for near-term sailings, optimizing our longer-term prospects for future revenue and pricing," said Bernstein, who also noted that onboard spending was up.

"Once again, our onboard and other revenue per diems were up significantly in the first quarter 2022 versus the first quarter 2019, in part due to the bundled packages as well as onboard credits utilized by guests from cruises canceled during the pause."

Carnival CEO Arnold Donald made similar remarks on pricing earlier in the call.

"We did maintain price as we said we would," he said. 

 Scholes said that he had seen prices dropping. He did not specify a cruise line.

"Prices are often not sticking when it comes time for final payment a month out from departure," Scholes wrote. "Some prices have dropped by 20% to 30% since the time of the initial booking."


» Instagram Sans Is A Curly New Font For A Full Brand Refresh
23/05/22 21:21 from Social news digest

Instagram Sans final

Instagram is launching a full ‘brand refresh’ according to a recent announcement from the company, and the incoming change reportedly includes a new font dubbed Instagram Sans. The new typeface is heavily centered around Instagram’s logo. So it utilizes square shapes with some flair at some corners to round things off. As shown in the image above.

The new typeface matches, according to Instagram, its need to better support as many languages as possible. In service of that, Instagram designed the fresh hand-built typeface with some added help from linguists. Helping to ensure the new font works better not just with standard languages but also with script-based languages such as Thai or Japanese.

Additionally, the company has even shared some imagery to better illustrate that process. Showcasing some fonts from along the way, ranging from the nearly unreadable to more mundane. With some of those examples blending the two styles as part of its transition away from its signature cursive typeface in apps and on the web.

What else is new with the brand refresh for Instagram, aside from a new font?

Of course, aside from a new Instagram Sans font for the brand refresh, the company is implementing other changes too. The company says its new layout and design system are intended to be content-forward. With the underlying goal of serving and “celebrating creativity, simplicity, and self-expression.”

What that ultimately means for end-users remains to be seen. But in the interim, the company also says its intent is to put content at the center of everything. Refocusing on “simplicity.”

Based on a deeper exploration of the company’s announcement, that’s going to put content in a more grid-like ordering with “full bleed” images. That should, in theory, result in less wasted space between content shares. That’s in addition to incorporating behind-the-scenes changes. Such as better resizing to fit more aspect ratios and resolutions.

» E Ink postcard picture frame to send postcards online
23/05/22 22:03 from feedspot

There was a time when collecting postcards was considered a nice hobby. There was also the provision to send them to friends and family, maybe with a personalized note written to it. The latter bit made such postcards all the more special. Unfortunately, while modern day communication aids like WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, Skype, and whatnot have rendered postcards obsolete, someone by the name Cameron is aiming to revive the past glory of postcards with a postcard picture frame he has made using an E Ink display.

As Hackaday reported, the E Ink display is designed to show images that your friends might have sent you. However, to do that, your friends will have to open the link that you sent them to upload the image. The picture frame will pick up such images for displaying based on an internal algorithm that again has several customization options as well. For instance, you have the option to change settings or delete images you don’t like.

The picture frame itself is quite a looker too thanks to the beautifully crafted frame made of wood. This adds a touch of a retro feel to the picture frame as well though the nice thing with it is that the beauty runs skin deep. That’s because the PCB on the inside also has been beautifully crafted and assembled. Done up in black, the PCB hosts the ESP32, a battery, and a USB-C charging circuit. Battery life again is a commendable one year on a single charge thanks to the extremely low power requirements of E Ink displays.

More details in the video below.

» Tesla Rival Makes Big Investment That May Attract Attention
23/05/22 22:07 from together

Hyundai announces plans to build an electric vehicle plant in Georgia, one of several EV-related companies planting seeds in the Peach State.

In 1909, the White Star Automobile Company of Atlanta assembled the first car in the state of Georgia.

White Star went bankrupt two years later, but Georgia's future with the automobile industry is burning bright.

'Every Step of the Supply Chain'

Georgia's department of economic development said on its website that the state is working to develop the electric vehicle manufacturing sector "at every step of the supply chain, from material processing to battery manufacturing to automotive assembly to battery recycling."

The Peach State reached an agreement with Rivian  (RIVN) - Get Rivian Automotive, Inc. Class A Report that will give the electric vehicle maker $1.5 billion in subsidies for its planned factory.

The $5 billion facility, which Rivian announced in December, is projected to create 7,500 jobs with an average wage of $56,000 at Stanton Springs, half an hour east of Atlanta.

Then there's SK Battery America, which said earlier this year that it will increase its hiring at its Commerce, Georgia plant by 15% due to a surge in electric vehicle orders.

SK, which has supply contracts with Ford  (F) - Get Ford Motor Company Report and Volkswagen  (VWAGY) - Get Volkswagen AG Report for its Georgia-made batteries, will hire 3,000 workers in Georgia by the end of 2023, up from its original estimate of 2,600.

And now Hyundai Motor Group has agreed with the Peach State to build its first dedicated full electric vehicle and battery manufacturing facilities in the U.S.

'It's Official!'

"It's official!" Hyundai announced on Twitter. "Our first dedicated EV and battery manufacturing facility in the U.S. will be in Georgia!"

The announcement confirms new stories from earlier this month.

The new facility will break ground in early 2023 and is expected to begin commercial production in the first half of 2025 with an annual capacity of 300,000 units.

Hyundai said the $5.54 billion dollar investment is expected to create about 8,100 jobs, and pull in another billion dollars’ worth of investment from suppliers. 

The facility will be located on a dedicated 2,923-acre site in Bryan County Georgia.

The battery manufacturing facility will be established through a strategic partnership, which the details will be disclosed at a later stage.

Hyundai said it is stepping up its its electrification efforts with the global target to sell 3.23 million full electric vehicles annually by 2030.

To realize this goal, Hyundai said plans to establish a global EV production network that will ensure a stable supply of EVs around the globe.

Hyundai said last week that it plans to invest a total of $16.54 billion through 2030 for the expansion of its EV business in South Korea.

Shanghai Shutdowns

The company said it aims to become one of the top three EV providers in the U.S. by 2026.

Hyundai is the parent company of Kia, which opened its first car manufacturing plant in Georgia in 2009. The plant employs about 3,000 people who produce about 340,000 cars each year.

The U.S. auto locations come at a time when Tesla  (TSLA) - Get Tesla Inc Report has been contending with Covid-19-related shutdowns in Shanghai. 

The city imposed strict controls in March on the movement of people and goods to curb the spread of the virus during a recent outbreak.

Tesla plans to restore production at its Shanghai plant to the level at which it had operated before the city's lockdown by Tuesday, May 24, a day later than its most recent recovery plan, Reuters reported, citing an internal memo.

The company has been contending with such problems as insufficient workers, shipping obstacles and restricted supplies of parts, including wire harnesses.

CEO Elon Musk in April opened Tesla's new factory in Austin, Texas, marking the company's second U.S. plant.

» AT&T Subscribers Can Stream Control Ultimate Edition For Free
23/05/22 21:32 from micro

ATT Control Free

AT&T is basically giving Control Ultimate Edition away for free to its subscribers. In a partnership with Google, the carrier began offering a white-label version of Stadia to stream Batman: Arkham Knight last year. Now with Control, this marks AT&T and Google’s second game via what the two are calling ‘Immersive Stream for Games.’

It lets subscribers access the game on Android smartphones and tablets, as well as iOS devices and even computers. All you have to do is go to the direct page through a browser. Then gameplay starts right up after logging your age and entering your AT&T phone number and billing zip code.

You even get access to the full version of the game and all of its DLC content. It’s a pretty cool little perk if you’re already an AT&T customer and haven’t played this game. While AT&T is likely to offer more titles in time, at the rate it’s taken the carrier to push out two titles, we wouldn’t expect a large collection anytime soon.

Play Control for free using your AT&T smartphone or tablet

Obviously the focused benefit here is playing this game on mobile devices. While it does work on PC browsers, it’s clear that AT&T and Google are trying to highlight phone and tablet use. Should you choose to play on a phone or tablet, you can stream Control Ultimate Edition over WiFi or mobile data. Though your experience may vary depending on how fast and reliable your mobile data connection is.

The Immersive Stream system will tell you if it thinks you’ll experience issues over mobile data, too. So you can use that to decide if you should wait till you have access to WiFi or not. Playing on phones and tablets also supports both touch controls or the use of a connected controller.

AT&T doesn’t mention anything about plan lockouts, so as long as you subscribe to AT&T you should be able to take advantage of this cool benefit. You may need to have a postpaid plan though so keep that in mind if things aren’t working. But as far as we can tell, the only prerequisite is that you live in the US. You can also check out the trailer for this launch below.

Инстаграм с Ютюбом признали публикации/хэштэги «Азов» недопустимыми и удаляют все, что с ним связано.

Кстати жены азовцев просят не публиковать фото/видео, где их "герои" издеваются/убивают раненых солдат.

Это Зрада или Перемога?
