Over $50 for a burrito? World’s elite splash the cash on snacks at Davos

The burrito in the Steigenberger Grandhotel Belvedere came with a side of salsa and guacamole.CNBCDAVOS, Switzerland — Hungry attendees at this year's World Economic Forum may have found some of the food a little hard to stomach, with some eye-popping prices in some locations.Just a stone's throw away from the main Davos Congress Center, the fancy Steigenberger Grandhotel Belvedere was charging punters 49 Swiss francs ($51) for a burrito on its "snacks" menu.It was accompanied by a small bowl of guacamole and salsa.

The reasons why Samsung bets on 8K in its top TV range and, although there is no content, it makes sense

The South Korean company has several models that make the leap to 8K resolution in large models >65" and although there are no channels or much content available in that native resolution, it does make sense in several ways. It is difficult to justify the purchase of an 8K TV if we stop to take a look at what content we are going to see on TV. If we talk about DTT, in Spain there are some 4K channels in tests, but the majority of "high definition (HD)" are of 720p or 1,080i resolution. If we stop to think about streaming platform contentthe vast majority of content is FullHD or 4K in the best of cases, so we really do not have an offer beyond some specific test.Youtube have some demo in 8K and there are few devices with which we can record our own videos in this resolu...

The Uber-like ‘app’ with which the Ukrainian artillery annihilates Russian battalions

The GIS Arta system decides how to attack the enemy in record time, according to the British newspaper 'The Times'Without technology we are nothing. Less, still, if we refer specifically to the war. Since the beginning of the invasion of Ukraine, which has already been completed for three months, the army of the country governed by Zelensky has taken advantage of the shipment of material and solutions from abroad to stop the advance of the Russian soldiers. However, the state also has its own solutions. Solutions that, moreover, are becoming a headache for the Kremlin troops. That is the case, for example, of the GIS Arta application, a system that, thanks to the use of artificial intelligence and the Starlink satellite internet provided by Elon Musk, is allowing the Ukrainian artil...
