SITA launches investigation after computer glitch hits airports

first_imgSydney airport expects strong growth. Photo: Sydney Airport. Technology company SITA  has launched an investigation into computer problems that caused widespread delays at Australian and New Zealand airports Monday morning.Airline staff were forced to resort to manual check-in procedures for international flights after problems with SITA’s Advanced Passenger Processing System used by airlines to check that people can travel to their proposed destination.The failure of the system caused delays and queues at affected airports and delays in international departures of up to 60 minutes.SITA said the problem was due to a network connectivity issue which say border control systems disrupted for just under three hours.“We are treating this incident with the utmost urgency and our Major Incident Management Process has been triggered,’’ it said. “All services now have been fully restored and operations are running as normal.“We regret any impact this incident has had on our customers and passengers.  Our priority remains, as always, to ensure a stable system so that our customers can conduct their business efficiently and effectively.’’The company said it was conducting a full investigation to discover the root cause of the outage and its team remained on “high alert”.last_img read more

Akhilesh’s verse attack

first_imgSamajwadi Party (SP) president Akhilesh Yadav went lyrical on Wednesday to slam the Adityanath government for renaming Uttar Pradesh cities, saying the developmental works in the State have come to a halt due to it. “Band pade hain saare kaam, bikhra pada sab samaan; tarakki ke ruke hain raste, badal rahe hain bus naam,” (All works have stopped, materials lie scattered; paths of development stand blocked, only names are being changed),” tweeted Mr. Yadav, tagging a few photographs of stalled works. This came on a day when the SP faced another ‘poetic’ attack from its own Minister, Om Prakash Rajbhar, the chief of ruling NDA constituent Suheldev Bhartiya Samaj Party. “Diwali me Ali basey, Ram basey Ramzan, Aisa hona chahiye apna Hindustan,” (India’s ethos should be just like that of Diwali, which has Ali in it and Ramzan, which has Ram),” tweeted Rajbhar Wednesday, highlighting the futility of changing names.last_img read more

Our favorite 55inch OLED TV is down to 1099

first_img Comments Now playing: Watch this: TVs Video Games 1:55 The dazzling LG B8 55-inch OLED TV has never been priced this low. Sarah Tew/CNET Cheeps! If you happen to live in the vicinity of White Lake, MI, come on out to the White Lake Township Library tonight at 6:30 p.m. I’ll be there talking about some of my favorite money-saving tips and tricks (including something I’ve never discussed here). Everyone who shows up gets a cool prize, and some folks will win even cooler prizes in a raffle. Hope to see you there!You know me: I’m all about the cheap TVs. I prize low prices over picture quality, especially when the latter is “good enough.”But there’s a whole other category of people (including many of my esteemed CNET colleagues) who lean the other way: They want the best possible image quality, period. Price be damned.Thankfully, it doesn’t always have to be. Today only, and while supplies last, Newegg has the LG B8 55-inch OLED 4K TV for $1,098.88 — the lowest price to date and a savings of at least $400 over other stores. (Amazon and Best Buy are both currently at around $1,600.) Forget damned; more like “damn!”See it at NeweggOne important thing to note: This deal comes from Newegg proper. If the inventory runs out, that link will still work, but you’ll likely end up seeing a slightly different price from a third-party seller. Does that matter? It might. Newegg is an authorized LG dealer. If you buy from an unauthorized dealer, LG may not honor warranty claims.The B8 is, according to CNET’s resident expert, David Katzmaier, “the best high-end value TV.” In other words, even though it was still pretty pricey when he reviewed it, overall image quality was second only to LG’s even-pricier models.It features a super-slim design, four HDMI inputs, built-in Google Assistant and all the other advanced goodies you’d expect.The B8 is super popular with owners, too. It has a 4.6-star average at Amazon and a 4.7 at Best Buy. Now, will I still argue that most folks will be just as happy with, say, a 55-inch TCL Roku TV in the $400 range? Absolutely. But if you want the best, at least here you can get it for a lot less than just a few months ago.Your thoughts? Share your voice Walmart LG Titanfall 2 deal: Just $5!Game time! Titanfall 2 was released in late 2016 to mostly glowing reviews. Price then: $60, the same as pretty much every new videogame release.For a limited time, and while supplies last, Walmart has Titanfall 2 for Xbox One for $5. Yep: Five. Bucks. And that’s for a boxed copy, not a download.See it at WalmartFear not, PS4 owners: Walmart also has Titanfall 2 for PS4 for $7. Regular price on both editions: $20. (That’s also proof-positive that you should never buy a videogame when it’s first released.)See it at WalmartShipping isn’t free unless you hit at least $35 in your shopping cart. If you don’t have more to buy, choose in-store pickup to bypass the shipping charge.This is a seriously good game deal.
