Introduction:In this report I will be outlining three articles that have experienced atechnical change, underwent a merger and have experienced changes due tobrexit. The articles will be of 2018 published from online newspapers. Technical change There are anumber of changes to the Smartphone industry in the coming of 2018, most ofwhich are subtle, unlike those for this season. The exception is the introductionof a touch id sensor embedded in the screen of a little known Chinese company Vivoalong with Synaptics who have successfully showcased a prototype at 2018 CES (ConsumerElectronics Show) this January.
Synaptics are the one who have perfectedthe technology to be implemented in a Smartphone. You would believe this typeof innovation to be achieved by Samsung, Google or Apple by now. The industry was waiting for some time now to see thistechnology brought to market so for Synaptic to be the first to actuallyachieve this is a major feat that deserves congratulations. The short story isthat Synaptic’s’ implementation is based on a CMOS sensor that sits underneaththe OLED screen and captures the fingerprint through the OLED stack with helpof illumination of the screen itself. The structure,weighing approximately 10 kg, has resulted in a weight limit increase from 728kg to 733 kg. With some teams right on this year’s weight limit, they will needto lower the mass of current components by more than 5 kg to be able to runballast next season, so there may some outfits slightly over the limit.
Overall, alaptime penalty of around 0.4s will result from the Halo thanks to the extra 5kg overall, plus the fact that its high-up position is detrimental tostability. Your task is to write a report thatdescribes, explains and analyses threerelevant newspaper articles published in the UK national print press. Each newspaper article should refer toa specific firm that is undergoingor responding to a particular kind of change. Each of your three stories shouldfeature a different firm.

A firm that is experiencing theeffects of Brexit. The newspaper articles you use shouldhave been published between 15 October 2017 and 15 January 2018.
They should come from daily broadsheetnewspapers (e.g. The Financial Times, The Guardian, The Times, TheTelegraph). It is fine to use the online versions of such newspapers.
However,’Tabloidesque’ papers such as the Sun, The Mirror are not acceptable as sourcesand neither are blogs or social media reports. Only newspapers that arepublished daily are acceptable, so articles from for example The Economist(published weekly) are not acceptable.
