The protest of the Real causes a carousel of changes in the schedules of Cup and League

first_imgThe reactions as soon as the schedules of this next tie were known did not wait. Reactions of outrage, such as Asier Illarramendi, the captain of the San Sebastian team, who did not hesitate to be very critical of his team’s match schedule in this Cup round, and did not bite his tongue. “You have worn the Copa schedules. Not even 48 hours to rest between matches,” wrote the midfielder Mutrikuarra, that anyway he was not going to be able to play the game when he was in the final stretch of his injury recovery. The anger inside the Real was very great.The Royal immediately called the Federation to complain about the schedule, Arguing that between a League and Cup match there must be a minimum of 48 hours for players to rest. And in this case it was not fulfilled, no matter how much the San Sebastian team plays their next two games at home, at the Reale Arena, and does not have to do any displacement. The Royal, in fact, with the regulation in hand could refuse to play at that time, something they have threatened to do if the federation did not change the day against Osasuna. The complaints have taken effect, the Federation has heeded the request of the Royal understanding that he was right and took the game to Thursday at 9:00 pm, a more logical schedule, because then Real plays Sunday at noon in the Leganés field, so it does meet the stipulated time between game and match. The cup draw held on Friday has crossed into Real Sociedad with Osasuna in the round of 16. The Federation initially determined that this meeting be held next Tuesday, at 7:00 p.m. It would be the match that opens the round of eighths. The Royal Society complained about not having 48 hours of rest between the League game that will be played this weekend and the Cup clash. So both the Federation and LaLiga have decided to change the schedule of two games. The Federation has delayed the Real Sociedad-Osasuna Cup on Thursday (9:00 p.m.), while LaLiga has passed Villarreal-Osasuna from Saturday, February 1 (6:30 p.m.) to Sunday 2 (6:30 p.m.)Those of Imanol Alguacil face in this league day to Mallorca on Sunday, at 6:30 p.m. For its part, Osasuna, the rival of the San Sebastian team in the Cup He played his league match this Friday against Levante. With the change of the cupbearer duel between San Sebastian and Pamplona, The Royal Society will have one more day of rest.

Sony delivers final verdict on lossmaking Xperia smartphone lineup

first_imgAfter years of lagging behind Samsung and Apple, Sony has finally revealed its decision on whether or not to continue its loss-making Xperia smartphone line.Despite an operating loss of $879.45 million (£695.86 million), Sony will continue to manufacture smartphones, as it sees the devices as “necessary” for a sustainable hardware brand.Related: Best smartphonesReuters reports that CEO Kenichiro Yoshida has said: “We see smartphones as hardware for entertainment and a component necessary to make our hardware brand sustainable. And younger generations no longer watch TV. Their first touch point is smartphone.”Sony has reported record-breaking profit — but that’s no thanks to its smartphones business, which has a global market share of only 1% and ships just 6.5 million handsets annually. By comparison, Samsung sold 291.3 million units, ahead of Apple on 206.3 million (via Digital Trends).Recently Sony gave its existing smartphone lineup a face lift, no doubt hoping to improve its flagging sales.This includes the Sony Xperia 1, a new flagship that succeeds the Xperia XZ3. We haven’t yet given this unreleased device a full review, but when we tried it we dubbed it a “promising powerhouse” and a “step in the right direction”.It features a Snapdragon 855 processor, like the one found in the OnePlus 7 Pro, and a 3330mAh battery. The rear triple camera comprises three 12-megapixel sensors, and it’s capable of shooting 4K HDR video at 24fps.But the main selling point is its 6.5-inch screen, with a 21:9 aspect ratio for a widescreen experience when watching full-screen videos. It’s not just big: it’s also the first-ever 4K HDR OLED display in a smartphone, born from Sony’s Bravia TV technology.If it lives up to the hype, this might just be the smartphone to reverse Sony’s fortunes for the better.If you’re looking for a less expensive alternative from Sony, the Xperia 10 features the same 21:9 aspect ratio, but we were disappointed with its underpowered performance and below-average battery life.
