Miguel has a rare and specific talent as a vocalist and presence: he has the ability, whether through dynamics or range or sheer intensity, to make whatever he's singing about feel transgressive. It's a technique he first showed off on 2012's Kaleidoscope Dream, one of the best albums of that year, and he doesn't hesitate to return to the well on Wildheart, his new full-length. Miguel Pimentel was once a pretty straightforward R&B singer, one who looked a little bit like Kobe Bryant on his album cover and wasn't quite sure how to harness his obvious magnetism.
Virtual reality games might have taken the center stage at E3 earlier this month, but film could still be a major draw for the medium. Together, the images they produce form a sphere of video that filmmakers can put viewers inside. This is the two-year-old Jaunt's fifth generation of camera, and it's far from the only company to be working on 360-degree video.
You already have WhatsApp, Hangouts, Facebook Messenger, Telegram, and a litany of others to choose from, so anyone else trying to get involved in this field must have something unique to offer.

On Android devices, Pushbullet also lets users communicate via WhatsApp and other popular messengers, and now the company has decided to fill the obvious void of providing its own chat capabilities as well.
EU authorities made a last-minute offer to salvage a bailout deal that could keep Greece in the euro as the clock ticked down on Tuesday, with Germany warning that time had run out to extend vital credit lines to Athens. With billions of euros in locked-up bailout funds due to expire at midnight, the European Commission urged Greece to accept the proposed deal, while holding out hopes that some tweaks could still be possible. If no agreement is reached, Greece will default on a loan to the IMF, setting it on a path out of the euro with unforeseeable consequences for the European Union's grand currency project and the global economy.
MUMBAI/FRANKFURT (Reuters) - Network equipment maker Nokia has signed up India's largest mobile operator Bharti Airtel to supply it with 3G wireless network gear covering some of the most populous regions in India, the Finnish company said on Tuesday. Nokia Networks said it will supply radio antennas, hardware, software and network management and planning services for five large areas of India, as well as network expansion in three sub-regions where the two companies had existing contracts, or eight out of India's 22 telecom sub-regions. The Asia-Pacific region outside China represented one-third of Nokia's Network worldwide business sales of 2.67 billion euros ($3 billion) during the first quarter of 2015, making it the largest contributor to the company's results.
PARIS (Reuters) - Two executives from Uber's French branch will go on trial on September 30, a prosecutor said on Tuesday, after the two were held for questioning as the government intensified its clampdown on the U.S.-based taxi and ride-sharing service. Thibaud Simphal, manager of Uber France, and Pierre-Dimitri Gore-Coty, general manager for western Europe, were detained on Monday as part of an investigation that earlier led to Uber's offices being raided by police in March. ...
Uber France and two company executives will go on trial in September, French prosecutors announced today, on charges related to its UberPop service. Pierre-Dimitri Gore-Coty, Uber's general manager for Western Europe, and Uber France CEO Thibaud Simphal were taken into police custody yesterday in Paris, a few days after French taxi unions staged a nationwide strike in protest against UberPop. As AFP reports, the executives and Uber France have been charged with misleading business practices, complicity in operating an illegal taxi service, and illegal treatment of personal data.
Euro zone stocks and low-rated bonds recovered the worst of their losses on Tuesday but remained on edge as Greece looked set to default on a debt repayment to the IMF and plunge deeper into financial crisis. The breakdown of talks between Athens and international creditors over the weekend has led Greece to close its banks and impose capital controls. There have been few signs of market panic even as the uncharted territory of a Greek exit from the euro zone becomes more likely, with investors citing Europe's improved ability to fight financial contagion since the height of the euro debt crisis in 2011.

General Electric Co said it would sell its European private equity financing business to a unit of Japan's Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corp (SMBC) for about $2.2 billion as the U.S. conglomerate sheds financial assets amid a restructuring. This makes the deal attractive to the core banking unit of Japan's third largest bank, Sumitomo Mitsui Financial Group (SMFG) , which is trying to diversify away from the fiercely competitive corporate lending sector. In 2012, SMFG acquired an aircraft leasing company from Royal Bank of Scotland Group for $7.3 billion and this year, Mizuho Financial Group Inc agreed to buy the U.S. and Canadian loan portfolio of RBS for $3 billion.
