En su debut como secretario de Comercio, Roberto Feletti cerró un rápido acuerdo con empresas y supermercados un acuerdo para congelar el precio de 1.245 productos de consumo masivo (alimentos, limpieza e higiene personal). A una primera lista de 900, se sumaron en las últimas horas 345 más. Las compañías deberán presentar este mismo miércoles a última hora una lista con los precios de esos productos al 1º de octubre firmada por sus representantes legales.

Serán esas listas las que funcionarán como base del acuerdo que deberán cumplir hasta el 7 d enero de 2022 y que estará ya vigente a partir de mañana y que incluirá la lista aun vigente de Precios Cuidados, sin aumentos. “El objetivo es aparear la política de ingresos del Gobierno con una política de precios. Para eso tomamos como base un indicador que mide el impacto de la canasta básica de un adulto en el salario promedio de los trabajadores registrados. Ese indicador era de 9% en 2019, cuando asumió el Gobierno, y hoy está en 11%”, señaló Roberto Feletti durante una charla con periodistas.

Feletti aseguró que el acuerdo fue “comprendido” por las compañías porque está en el marco de un ciclo de expansión de consumo que se prevé para los próximos meses

Luego del encuentro con los empresarios de las principales compañías de consumo masivo y supermercadistas, Feletti aseguró que el acuerdo fue “comprendido” por las compañías porque está en el marco de un ciclo de expansión de consumo que se prevé para los próximos meses. Y que la idea es que las empresas puedan ganar por cantidad y no por precio.

“Vamos a un trimestre de expansión de consumo. Es algo estacional. Hay paritarias, se cobra el aguinaldo, están las fiestas y las vacaciones. Y con la caída de los contagios hay mayor expectativa de circulación. No podemos permitir que el crecimiento del consumo se frustre por una suba de precios”, aseguró el secretario de Comercio que asumió en reemplazo de Paula Español.

Feletti también confía en que el acuerdo servirá para lograr una baja en el índice de inflación. “Como secretario de Comercio, nuestro trabajo es definir una política de precios que tenga correlación con los salarios. Asumo la responsabilidad de esa política de precios”, aseguró Feletti.

Los precios de los productos que forman parte del acuerdo estarán identificados en las góndolas aunque aun no se sabe si el programa contará con un nombre que lo identifique o se mantendrá el de Precios Cuidados. “Se les pidió a las empresas que tengan un rótulo y estén señalizados. En lugar de Congelados prefiero usar Estabilizados”, dijo el secretario de Comercio.

Consultado sobre la efectividad de estos acuerdos de precios, que ya fueron implementados varias veces en la historia económica de la Argentina, Feletti aseguró que normalmente este tipo de programas se aplicaban en momentos de sobre expansión de la economía, donde la capacidad salarial era mayor.

DJI announces compact, modular, and magnetic Action 2 camera

Published

on


DJI has announced a follow-up to its Osmo Action camera, and it’s got a completely new design — the Action 2 drops the Osmo name and focuses on modularity with a suite of additional parts and accessories that attach to the camera magnetically.

The camera module itself is small (it’s 39mm square and 22mm deep) and includes a 12MP sensor capable of 4K recording, a lens that provides a 155-degree field of view, and a 1.76-inch OLED touchscreen covered by Gorilla Glass. Using magnets, you can attach another touchscreen (which also boosts the battery life and adds an array of microphones), an extra battery, or a variety of mounts that let you attach it to tripods or GoPro mounts, or even wear the camera as a necklace.

Modules, like the one that adds extra battery power, attach with both magnets and physical clips.

Speaking of GoPro, any action cam is going to face comparisons, and the Action 2’s specs fall short when put side by side with those of the recent Hero10 Black: it can do 4K at 120 frames per second like the Hero10 but lacks any higher-resolution options (the Hero10 can do 5.3K60), and its 240fps super slow-motion runs at 1080p instead of the GoPro’s 2.7K.

It’s worth keeping in mind that the Action 2 is tiny in comparison — it weighs just 53 grams, which is almost exactly a third the weight of the Hero10. DJI also includes 32GB of built-in storage (expandable with a microSD card), something the GoPro lacks.

There’s also the system of magnetic accessories DJI is working on, which lets you customize your camera in a way that’s not really possible with the GoPro. If you need a second screen or more battery, you can just snap them on — and then take them off when you want a compact or discreet camera. Other accessories, like a headband or magnetic ball-mount adapter that can be attached to tripods, are similar to GoPro accessories but will (in theory) be easier to attach to and detach from the camera.

The Action 2 has a touchscreen on the back, and the front screen module lets you add another one, as well as augmenting the camera’s single microphone with three others.

The Action 2 also has action cam table-stakes features like electronic stabilization, horizon leveling, and the ability to livestream or be used as a webcam, as well as some neat tricks like a color temperature sensor that DJI says will help produce better colors in complicated lighting situations or underwater.

Comparing the Action 2’s price with GoPro’s isn’t straightforward, due to GoPro’s pricing model and the DJI’s modularity. You can get the Hero10 for $400, but that requires having a $50-a-year subscription — otherwise, the camera is $500. The Action 2 power bundle costs $399 and includes the camera, power module (which extends your record time to 180 minutes versus the camera’s 70 and adds an extra microSD card slot), a mount, and a lanyard. DJI tells me you can’t buy the camera by itself, which seems like a shame.

If you want to replicate the Hero10’s built-in front-facing screen, you’ll have to go for the $519 dual-screen bundle, which includes the same things as the power bundle (but swaps out the battery module with the screen one) and adds a ball-joint adapter as well. While that’s technically more than the GoPro’s non-subscriber asking price, the Hero10’s lack of built-in storage means that you’d probably make up the price difference buying a microSD card anyways.

DJI says that the dual-screen bundle will be coming on November 2nd, and the power combo, along with most other accessories, will be coming in “mid-November.”

Nor’easter: 490,000 outages as Massachusetts hit by strong winds

Published

on


Nearly 500,000 homes and businesses in Massachusetts were without power early Wednesday as a powerful nor’easter continued to batter the East Coast.

The National Weather Service in Boston warned of a «dangerous situation» near and southeast of I-95, the East Coast’s main highway.

«Winds gusting over hurricane force across southeast Massachusetts. Numerous downed trees,» the service warned on Twitter. «TRAVEL IS NOT RECOMMENDED early this morning in southeast MA.»

The storm has already caused flooding in New York and New Jersey, where emergency services have carried out dozens of rescues.

The fire department in Duxbury said that «many roads are impassable» and that it was «handling a very high volume of emergency calls.»Duxbury Fire Department

Coastal areas of Massachusetts are now bearing the brunt of the storm, with reported wind gusts of up to 97 mph that have brought down trees and power lines.

The Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency said close to 490,000 customers were without power as of 8:30 a.m. ET

Most of these, almost 300,000, were in Barnstable and Plymouth counties, which cover Cape Cod and an area south of Boston.

All schools on the Cape have been closed, according to the Barnstable County Regional Emergency Planning Committee. And images and video posted on social media showed downed trees and other debris littering roads. 

In Boston, downed trees disrupted parts of the Red Line and Mattapan Trolley service, according to the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority, which deployed replacement shuttle buses.

The Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency warned people to «avoid downed power lines, check on neighbors, and use generators outside away from buildings.»

The Massachusetts Steamship Authority, which runs ferries from the mainland to Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket, said it was canceling all services until further notice. It warned people not to attempt to get to its terminals and to stay off the “extremely dangerous” roads.

The harbormaster in Plymouth said some boats had broken free from their moorings.

On Tuesday, New York City saw almost 4 inches of rain in lower Manhattan and and Brooklyn in 24 hours — which are amounts approaching the rainfall typically seen in a month.

The weather service said the window for the strongest winds along the coast was between 7 a.m. and 8 a.m. local time, «with somewhat lesser winds farther inland.»

It said early Wednesday that the wind would «slowly diminish today but it remains windy» as the storm pushes off the coast.

The Northeast won’t have much time to dry out, as there’s more rain in the forecast for the region on Friday.
