Online talent firm Fullscreen has launched its own subscription video platform to rival YouTube's offering. Until now, Fullscreen has worked with social media talent on free platforms such as Instagram, Snapchat and YouTube. But the company said the economics of producing premium video on ad-supported platforms "did not work out". One industry analyst questioned whether Fullscreen had the brand recognition necessary to attract a big audience. Fullscreen describes itself as a "modern media company", part talent agency, part content producer. It has a roster of 75,000 "partners", predominantly recruited through YouTube. More»

Masdar , Abu Dhabi's renewable energy company, has completed the delivery of 30 megawatts of utility-scale clean energy projects and 7,000 solar home systems in remote and strategic areas across Egypt. Together, the four clean energy projects developed by Masdar 's Special Projects unit will power 25,800 homes and displace 42,700 tonnes of CO2 annually, as well as advance the development objectives of the Egyptian government. On Tuesday, April 19, Masdar formally completed a 14 MW project comprised of four photovoltaic diesel hybrid plants developed in the governorate of the Red Sea. The new projects complement existing diesel-based plants with solar energy, thereby saving costs associated with the purchase and transport of diesel, reducing risk of fuel price increases and supply shortages, and greatly reducing CO2 emissions. The plants in Marsa Alam (6MW), Shalateen (5MW), Abu Ramad (2 MW) and Halayeb (1 MW) are specifically designed to ensure that the area's tourism sector - the lifeblood of the region - is supported by efficient and reliable electricity.

Hackers managed to steal $80m (£56m) from Bangladesh's central bank because it skimped on network hardware and security software, reports Reuters. The bank had no firewall and used second-hand routers that cost $10 to connect to global financial networks. Better security and hardware would have hampered the attackers, Reuters said, quoting an official investigator. The hackers aimed to steal $1bn but made mistakes that led to the theft being spotted and stopped. Better defence A firewall would have made attempts to hack the bank more "difficult", Mohammad Shah Alam, a forensic investigator who works on the Bangladesh team investigating the theft, told Reuters.

More than nine million virtual reality (VR) headsets will be shipped in 2016, suggests research by analyst firm IDC. The estimate is far more than the 350,000 headsets that were sent out last year, it said. Some of the growth will be down to the first consumer-ready versions reaching customers, said the firm. However, most numerous will be the "screenless" systems that use smartphones as their main display. IDC said it expected about two million headsets from Oculus, HTC and Sony to be shipped to consumers in 2016. The Oculus Rift headset began shipping on 28 March, HTC Vive headsets are due to start being dispatched this month and Sony's PlayStation VR should be available in October. More»
