He has been a journalist…More Read more LIVE FROM MOBILE ASIA EXPO 2014: Creating a base of user advocates from existing “fans” of Meizu and Ubuntu will be key to driving the early success of Ubuntu in the mobile market, Cristian Parrino, VP of mobile and online services for Canonical, told Mobile Asia Daily.“Our objective for the first phase of launch is to create the first few hundred thousand advocates. Only when we have these advocates in the market, when there are people talking about it, will we go into physical retail,” he said.Canonical announced its partnership with Meizu to offer Ubuntu devices in the Chinese market ahead of Mobile World Congress in February, alongside a deal with bq targeting Europe.And while the company is using Mobile Asia Expo as an opportunity to provide an update on its progress bringing devices to market, Parrino acknowledged the challenges of bring a new platform to market, especially when it will face fierce competition from Google’s Android, Apple’s iOS, and Microsoft’s Windows Phone.“We want to get the first devices into the hands of people who already love the respective brands, will have a little more tolerance for the first version of something new, and we’ll have a little more opportunity to talk to them about what’s new. As opposed to sticking it in retail, where the guy is just going to sell Android.”Central to the new proposition offered by Ubuntu in the mobile space is what it calls Scopes, which enables operators, device makers, developers and publishers to integrate content into the device user interface.“From the very first time a smartphone came out, there has always been a grid of app icons. 15 years later, it’s still a grid of app icons. What we’ve done is look at what people use the most on a phone, and expose that directly, without having it hidden behind apps or stores,” Parrino said.“I think we’ll come out with something that’s really different for users, something that really brings out their favourite content and services as part of the UI, without any barriers.”Ubuntu also faces the challenge that with hundreds of millions of users already, its rivals are already supported by a large apps and content ecosystem.Parrino points to two things the platform has in its favour: the fact that millions of developers worldwide are already familiar with Ubuntu, even if they are using it to build apps for other platforms; and the fact that Canonical has made it “dead simple” to come to the platform, without needing to create expensive native apps to target a new OS that has no user base.“There is no magic answer to the ecosystem story. There’s no magic bullet. But we have a number of cards that we can play that give us a good head start,” he said.

first_imgMore than half of people who recover from COVID-19 still report fatigue 10 weeks later, regardless of the seriousness of their initial infection, an observational study published Nov 9 in PLOS One has found.Led by researchers at Trinity College Dublin, the study involved taking blood samples from and administering the Chalder Fatigue Scale (CFQ-11) assessment to 128 patients visiting an outpatient post-coronavirus care clinic at St. James’s Hospital in Dublin. CFQ-11 rates fatigue on a scale of 9 to 63 based on a nine-item questionnaire, with a higher score indicating more fatigue.Sixty-seven of 128 participants (52.3%) reported fatigue, a common symptom of acute COVID-19 infection, a median of 10 weeks after recovery, while 54 (42.2%) said they had recovered their full health.According to the CFQ-11 case definition, 67 of 128 participants (52.3%) met the criteria for fatigue, with a mean score of 20. While participants’ physical and psychological fatigue levels after COVID-19 were higher than those of the general population, they were lower than scores indicating chronic fatigue syndrome, a complex illness causing extreme fatigue for at least 6 months unrelated to any underlying disease.Nearly a third hadn’t returned to workBefore their illness, 105 participants (82%) had worked outside the home, but 33 (31%) of them still had not returned to employment by the time of study participation. “This is of particular concern, given that it is recommended that post-viral infection return to work should take place after four weeks to prevent deconditioning,” the researchers wrote.Seventy-one of 128 patients (55%) had been hospitalized for treatment of COVID-19, 35 (49%) of them receiving the antimalarial drug hydroxychloroquine, and 6 (8.5%) of that subgroup also receiving the corticosteroid prednisolone.There was no link between persistent fatigue and the need for hospitalization, supplemental oxygen, or critical care or concentrations of laboratory biomarkers of inflammation or cell turnover. However, women and those previously diagnosed as having depression or anxiety or reporting use of antidepressant drugs made up a disproportionate number of those with lingering fatigue.Of the 128 patients, 66 (51.6%) were healthcare workers, but there was no association between occupation and lasting fatigue. “The large number of healthcare workers in our cohort is reflective of the overall demographics of Irish data and our institution, where 50% of positive SARS-CoV-2 cases involved healthcare workers,” the authors said. “The high proportion of healthcare workers infected by COVID-19, not just in our cohort but internationally, means that this will have a significant impact on healthcare systems.”Mean participant age was 49.5 years; the study findings were independent of age.Impaired quality of life, health system functionThe authors noted that the rates of persistent fatigue in the study were much higher than those reported in a 2006 study of patients after recovery from Epstein-Barr virus, Q fever, or Ross River virus, but that a 2009 study reported that 40% of patients had fatigue 1 year after recovery from infection with the coronavirus that causes severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS).”A lengthy post-infection fatigue burden will impair quality of life and will have significant impact on individuals, employers and healthcare systems,” the authors said. “This study highlights the importance of assessing those recovering from COVID-19 for symptoms of severe fatigue, irrespective of severity of initial illness, and may identify a group worthy of further study and early intervention.”last_img read more
