Terms & Regulations

Scheduling
Our schedule changes daily, depending on other clients, traffic conditions and public transportation. You should allow us a one hour margin from your appointed time. If we schedule for 5:00pm, we might arrive as late as 6:00pm, but we always try our best to be punctual

Time = Money
When your technician comes over, please remember that time is money. Although we work very fast, we are not psychic and can never be 100% sure how much time a certain task could take. The charge is by an hourly rate, even if it takes 4 hours to do something you thought would take only 2 hours.

One Hour Minimum
The first charge is always for arriving/traveling and the first hour of work. Even if your problem is fixed after 9 minutes, you will still have to pay for the entire hour. After the first hour, charges will be made for parts of an hour (for example, 2 hours and 10 minutes).

Payment
We accept cash or checks (with a preference for cash). If you are a business, we can invoice you, and set up a time to be paid. For remote/online service, we accept payment through PayPal.com or Google Checkout.

Coverage Area
Since this is New York, most of our traveling takes place on public transportation, which means that if you live too far from the city, there will be an extra charge for the first hour (the hour that includes the traveling fee).

UK startup Huddle reportedly needs to find either $5 million or a buyer

Alastair Mitchell and Andy McLoughlin of Huddle

Enterprise software firm Huddle urgently needs to find at least $5 million (£4 million) or a buyer to keep its bank happy, according to a Companies House filing that was first spotted by Computer Weekly.

Huddle has until April 30 to explain to its bank how it will raise at least $5 million in equity. It needs the money to ensure it can meet its financial obligations over the next 12 months.

“If the covenant is not met, the group would not have adequate cash resources to continue to pay liabilities as they fall due for at least the next 12 months,” the filing reads.

“Management is confident they will meet the covenant requirements, however this represents a material uncertainty which may significantly cast doubt about the company’s ability to continue as a going concern.”

Huddle was cofounded in London in 2006 by Andy McLoughlin and Alastair Mitchell, who was also the company’s CEO. The company has raised $89.2 million (£70 million) for its content collaboration platform. It was called out by UK government agency Tech City UK as one of the UK’s most promising startups in 2013 when it was selected to be part of its Future Fifty cohort.

Huddle VP Tim Deluca Smith said there was no need to be concerned about the impending deadline presented in the filing.

“As we are coming to the end of a funding cycle, our annual [Companies House] filing requires us to disclose how we are expecting to bridge our funding requirements going forward,” he reportedly told Computer Weekly. “This is very normal. We are a venture capital (VC)-backed company and, like any other, we require funding until either we break even or the business is acquired.”

Mitchell stepped down as CEO in January 2015 and made way for Morten Brøgger, a veteran tech exec whose past roles included CEO of Mach, which he helped sell to Syniverse for $715 million (£557 million) in 2012.

Huddle did not immediately respond to Business Insider’s request for comment.

Oracle plans ‘startup organization’ focused on cloud computing, AI, and VR

Oracle is hiring people for a “new startup organization” inside its North America operation that will focus on key technology trends, including cloud computing, internet of things, artificial Intelligence, and augmented and virtual reality.

The Solution Engineering organization the company is setting up will consist of Solution Engineering Centers in Reston, Va., and Denver.

The database and enterprise software company has previously indicated its interest in investing in some of these technology areas like machine learning and analytics.

Rooby language unites Go, Ruby

The Go and Ruby languages are partnered in the Rooby language intended for efficient development of microservices.

The object-oriented language has Ruby’s syntax and is written in Go. It’s for developing microservices that should be performant and easy to write. But the language does not constitute a Ruby upgrade. “Having full support of Ruby’s [features] will be a huge effort and that would be a wrong way to go,” according to the language’s documentation.

Rooby’s developers also say that the language “can’t be syntactic sugar over Go because we are building an abstraction layer upon it, not forking Go and modifying its parser. So we certainly need to keep [improving] our implementation to make it as performant as possible.” To make Rooby performant, plans call for building a server library using Go’s net/http package. Rooby can be compiled into bytecode and evaluate bytecode directly. Currently, its parser is handcrafted and will have limitations.

Investors backed an AI startup that puts a doctor on your smartphone with $60 million

dr ali parsa babylon health

UK artificial intelligence (AI) startup Babylon has raised $60 million (£47 million) for its smartphone app which aims to put a doctor in your pocket.

The latest funding round, which comes just over a year after the startup’s last fundraise, means that the three-year-old London startup now has a valuation in excess of $200 million (£156 million), according to The Financial Times.

Babylon’s app has been downloaded over a million times and it allows people to ask a chatbot a series of questions about their condition without having to visit a GP. The medical chatbot provides feedback on the patient’s symptoms and recommends a paid-for video call with a human doctor when the occasion calls. One-off calls with a doctor start at £25, while calls with a specialist cost more. Alternatively, Babylon users can pay £5 a month for a subscription to the service.

“The new funding will be used to accelerate the development of our technology and expanding geographically,” Ali Parsa, founder and CEO of Babylon, told Business Insider. “Our focus will be in deepening our machine intelligence and broadening the expansion of Babylon across new geographies.”

Babylon, which employs around 170 people, said in a press release that it wants to build the world’s most advanced AI platform in healthcare, support medical diagnosis, and predict personalised health outcomes globally.

“Cutting edge artificial intelligence together with ever increasing advances in medicine means that the promise of global good health is nearer than most people realise,” said Parsa in a statement.

“Babylon scientists predict that we will shortly be able to diagnose and foresee personal health issues better than doctors, but this is about machines and medics co-operating not competing. Doctors do a lot more than diagnosis: artificial intelligence will be a tool that will allow doctors and health care professionals to become more accessible and affordable for everyone on earth. It will allow them to focus on the things that humans will be best at for a long time to come.”

Last January, Babylon raised $25 million (£19.5 million) from a range of investors, including DeepMind cofounders Demis Hassabis and Mustafa Suleyman. That round valued the company at over $100 million (£78 million), according to The Financial Times.

The latest funding round reportedly includes Egyptian billionaire business family, the Sawiris, as well as several other new investors.

The company teamed up with the NHS in January on a trial project that saw its AI doctor used to power the NHS 111 app, which is available to over a million north London residents. The partnership means that Londoners will be able to type their symptoms into an app instead of calling a human to describe their health problems over a phone. The app will then provide advice to the person on what to do next.

Oracle is building a 'transformational' startup inside the company (ORCL)

Larry Ellison

Oracle doesn’t want to be accused of missing the boat when it comes to the next wave of tech.

It is launching two new Solution Engineering Centers where it plans to build out all kinds of cutting new technology, such as “artificial intelligence, augmented and virtual reality and many other exciting technology trends that interest us all,” according to an employment ad first spotted by Bloomberg’s Brian Womack.

The company calls this plan a “startup inside Oracle.”

The centers will be in located in Reston, Virginia and Denver, Colorado, the ad says and will involve, “a unique and rare opportunity to join the ground floor of building a truly transformational organization inside Oracle North America.”

And it’s looking for people now, including directors of each center.

The unit will apparently build custom cloud apps and work on other new-age tech for Oracle customers, the ads imply. For instance, engineers might build virtual reality apps for the resort industry, artificial intelligence apps for the retail industry and so on.

Oracle is best known for its popular database and enterprise software that helps companies do everything from run their finances, to manage suppliers to market their wares. But companies are increasingly not buying software the old-fashioned way and installing it in their own data centers. They are renting it all from cloud computing vendors. 

Oracle has its own cloud but it came later to the game and is now trying to play catch up, even as Amazon is deliberately trying to pick off Oracle’s customers for itself.

In the meantime, Facebook is working on a post-smartphone world; artificial intelligence is the next big thing in software; and Amazon Alexa, Google Now and Microsoft Cortana are already crushing it with voice commands.

Oracle has been exploring how to bring some of this new tech to the business world. For instance, last September chairman and CTO Larry Ellison demonstrated how to use Oracle’s chat bot to order business cards. 

The company is now trying to step up its game, and nab talent.
