Global Technology News for 22 Feb 2017

Microsoft seeks IndianThere's a growing population of Skype users in India, and Microsoft wants to capitalize on that with the launch of Skype Lite, a new app that's designed to be more useful in that market. The app... allows users to send and receive Skype messages, plus make video and audio calls to both users of the Lite version and the full version of Microsoft's app. Skype Lite is supposed to be optimized for delivering a good experience over rough network conditions, which is key for India where high-speed cellular data is harder to come by. Building a special app for India makes sense, as the country hosts a large and still growing smartphone market. Skype faces a crowded competitive landscape in the messaging market, which also includes Kik, WhatsApp, Line, WeChat, Telegram and a host of other...

The news comes within two weeks of Facebook's own announcement of ad auditing. Google is expanding auditing of YouTube metrics, with three partners that collect data on the viewability of ads -- that... is, whether people actually see them -- slated to have an independent audit. The company announced today that Moat, Integral Ad Science and DoubleVerify "will undergo a stringent, independent audit" for accreditation by the Media Rating Council, an influential nonprofit organization that sets rules for the tracking of media consumption. Earlier this month, Facebook announced that it, too, would have some of its ad metrics audited by the MRC. This followed Facebook's revelations earlier this year it had miscalculated several metrics used to measure content's performance on the platform. The...

The FBI might be forced toAbout a year ago, Apple went head to head with the FBI over an iPhone that belonged to one of the San Bernardino shooters. The FBI wanted to force Apple to break into the handset by creating a... backdoored version of iOS that would bypass the phone's lockscreen. Apple wanted none of it, and a PR battle emerged between the two parties. Ultimately, both won. Apple did not have to comply with the FBI's requests, and the FBI got that handset unlocked by hiring an unnamed third-party to hack the handset. The FBI has never shared any information regarding that operation. We have no idea how much it cost, what information the FBI obtained, and who hacked the handset. However, we might soon get some answers, as three news organizations have asked a judge to force the government to reveal how much it...

Apple really shouldn't addRumors have been swirling for the last few months that the iPhone 8 will have some kind of wireless charging feature. This would be real news, because Apple has been studiously ignoring the existence... of wireless charging for the last five years, even as Samsung and Google have embraced it. So why would Apple make the jump now? Initially, it was tied to the launch of a major improvement in wireless charging technology, led by a company called Energous. But Energous's solution -- at least the one approved by the FCC -- is barely better than what's available in Android phones today, and rumors are now suggesting that Apple is going to go with Qi, the same standard that you currently find in Android phones. I'm here today to beg and plead with Apple not to do that. If you're not going to blow...

Instead, the scientists showed that the cost of erasure could be paid in terms of an arbitrary physical quantity such as spin angular momentum--suggesting that heat energy is not the only conserved quantity in thermodynamics.

It's wireless, there's an optical sensor, and it lights up in pretty colors. What's special about it? Logitech's big selling point for this mouse is its ultra low latency wireless (and wired)...

Cat owners can breathe easy: there's little danger that your beloved tabby will make it more likely for you to develop a mental illness. New research has cleared the name of cats, helping put to rest... the debate over whether the creatures are dangerous because they host a common parasite that may play a role in disorders like schizophrenia. Cats host a parasite called Toxoplasma gondii that other research has linked to various mental illnesses. So, for some time, people have wondered whether cats are unsafe; for example, pregnant women are usually told to stay away from litter boxes. In a study published in the journal Psychological Medicine, researchers looked at data that tracked 5,000 Brits born in the early '90s until they were 18....

Besides a few job posts Apple never formally admitted to being the occupant at 90 Hills Road in Cambridge. This week, however, Cambridge News has spotted confirmation of Apple's presence in the city, in the form of the Apple logo appearing on signage outside of the office building. For the last two years Apple has been tight-lipped about its office in Cambridge, but now it seems the iPhone maker is ready to come out of the closet.

Martin Scorsese's Next Movie Is Heading To Netflix

The Huffington Post - 22 Feb 2017 16:54
Martin Scorsese's Next MovieNetflix has acquired its most prestigious title yet: a Martin Scorsese movie. “The Irishman,” a $100 million gangster flick starring Robert De Niro,was initially set up at Paramount, which... released Scorsese’s previous movie, “Silence.” But with 12-year Paramount chief Brad Grey leaving the studio after a financially spotty 2016, Scorsese and his team opted to package the movie elsewhere, according to IndieWire. “Scorsese’s movie is a risky deal, and Paramount is not in the position to take risks,” a source reportedly told IndieWire. “This way, he can make the project he wants.” In other words, Scorsese’s team wants to work somewhere that executives won’t panic about box-office numbers. That’s presumably a response to “Silence,” which cost $46 million but...

It isn't the first unboxing video to make its way... on to the internet, but it is the best we've seen, so if you're desperate to know what's inside the box, keep scrolling down.

Having just received one of my own earlier this week, I can confirm it is noticeably smaller than both the Xbox One box and the PlayStation 4 box. Considering the fact that the entire console is just a small tablet, this shouldn't come as much of a surprise to anyone who has been following the Switch: At the top of the box are the Joy-Con controllers...

That date should be familiar to fans: May 25th is the original release date of A New Hope back in 1977, and up until The Force Awakens, every live action Star Wars film hit theaters in May, at the beginning of the blockbuster season. (The one exception is The Clone Wars theatrical film, which hit theaters in August).

New leak shows off the LG G6 next to last year's G5

Android Central - 22 Feb 2017 16:24
New leak shows off the LG G6LG G6's slim bezels get highlighted in latest leak. The latest LG G6 leak shows off the device next to last year's G5. LG has previously stated that the G6 will feature a big screen in a small body,... and it's easy to see that from the image posted on Weibo. In spite of featuring a 5.7-inch QHD+ display, the G6 is only marginally larger than the 5.3-inch G5. The thin bezels certainly make the device much more appealing, but we'll have to wait and see if they pose any usability problems. In addition to the numerous leaks and rumors, we've seen sevveral teasers from LG in recent weeks highlight marquee features of the device, with the latest showing off the dual 13MP cameras at the back. With the 5.7-inch display set to offer a 2:1 ratio, LG is introducing new features to take advantage of the...

Autonomous racing cars also crash

The Loop - 22 Feb 2017 16:06
Autonomous racing cars alsoThe Verge: The world's first self-driving robot racing series took a big step toward reality this weekend. For the first time ever, both of Roborace's prototype autonomous racecars ran against each... other on a track. And: The two Roborace prototypes -- which the company refers to as DevBots -- "battled" each other around the same Puerto Madero street circuit in Buenos Aires that hosted the third race of Formula E's third season. The cars' Nvidia-powered brains handled 20 autonomous laps across the race weekend, according to Roborace, and topped out at about 115 miles per hour. 115 mph (185 km/h) is pretty slow for race cars, but fast enough to enjoy. At Monza last year (the Italian Grand Prix), the top speed was 225 mph (360 km/h). Once the bugs are all worked out, I expect we'll see...

AMD's Ryzen launches March 2,Ryzen is here. AMD said Wednesday that it plans a "hard launch" of its first three Ryzen processors on March 2, outperforming Intel's high-end chips while undercutting its prices by as much as 54... percent. AMD executives confidently unveiled the first three desktop chips to attack Intel's Core i7, supported by several top-tier motherboard vendors and boutique system builders. In many cases, executives said, AMD will offer more for less. The top-tier Ryzen 7 1800X will cost less than half of what Intel's thousand-dollar Core i7-6900K chip does--and outperform it, too. You can preorder Ryzen chips and systems from 180 retailers and system integrators today.

AMD Ryzen benchmark preview:AMD's Ryzen is out to prove that some things aren't too good to be true. At least that's what the latest round of benchmarks released from the company appear to prove. At this point, the numbers... indicate the underdog company's new chip will be every bit as impressive as the hype says it is. At a briefing on Tuesday ahead of its Wednesday launch, AMD again showed how its Ryzen chip matches or outperforms Intel's best and brightest, this time in the popular Maxon CineBench benchmark. CineBench measures a CPU's ability to render a 3D scene, loves multi-threading, and is generally well-respected as a valid way to measure pure CPU performance. In AMD's demonstrations, an eight-core AMD Ryzen 7 1700X matched Intel's eight-core Core i7-6900K. The kicker is just how much that Ryzen 7 1700X costs:...

Today's SpaceX news isn't nearly as cheerful, as the Dragon cargo... ship that was placed into orbit by the rocket has been forced to make an emergency abort before it reached the International Space Station, delaying the delivery of supplies to astronauts aboard the craft. The Dragon capsule, which is unmanned and guided entirely by remote commands, experienced a software glitch that produced a faulty value in its navigation calculations. The Dragon was less than a mile from the ISS when the capsule's software cried foul and, according to a NASA spokesperson, the SpaceX craft "did exactly what it was designed to do" by breaking off its approach.

For social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter, live streaming sports is key to attracting people since sports is one of the few types of content that people still watch live. Streaming live sports is still an experiment searching for a business model. It's not clear that Twitter made money on last year's Thursday Night...

Pad & Quill Debuts LeatherPad & Quill has created a Leather Apple Pencil Grip that allows users to get a better hold of the Apple Pencil when drawing or working on a compatible iPad. The grip accessory comes in a two-piece... construction, with one piece towards the bottom of the pencil to provide the holding grip, and the other towards the top that acts as a clip and Lightning cap holder. Like all of Pad & Quill's leather products, the Apple Pencil Grip is made of full-grade American leather so it's unique and is "designed to age with use and break in like an old baseball glove."

Surprising dunes on comet Chury

Phys.org - 22 Feb 2017 15:52
Surprising dunes on cometSurprising images from the Rosetta spacecraft show the presence of dune-like patterns on the surface of comet Chury. Researchers at the Laboratoire de Physique et Mécanique des Milieux Hétérogènes... (CNRS/ESPCI Paris/UPMC/Université Paris Diderot) studied the available images and modeled the outgassing of vapor to try to explain the phenomenon. They show that the strong pressure difference between the sunlit side of the comet and that in shadow generates winds able to transport grains and form dunes. Their work is published on 21 February 2017 in the journal PNAS.

Apple Purchases iCloud.NetApple recently purchased the iCloud.net domain, one of the last major iCloud-related web addresses that wasn't in its possession, reports TechCrunch. The iCloud.net domain, which now appears to be... registered to Apple, was the home of the "iCloud Social Network," a dubious-looking social networking platform designed to allow people to share activities, pictures, music, videos, and other content. It's not clear how many users iCloud.net had before Apple purchased the domain, but the site now states that the iCloud.net services will be shut down at the end of February 2017, and data will be destroyed in March. It has apparently existed since 2011, and in a blog post, the site's owner said "iCloud.net finished his mission, it is time for him to retire." MacRumors received a tip suggesting...

Alexa just became a virtual doctor

BGR - 22 Feb 2017 03:00
Alexa just became a virtualAlexa is useful for a great many things, from starting up a music playlist to talking you through a morning workout, so it should come as no surprise that Amazon's virtual assistant just became a... doctor, too. A new Alexa app built by personal wellness startup HealthTap lets you actually simulate a doctor visit right from your couch, using the combined knowledge of the company's 100,000 doctor network. HealthTap's Dr. A.I. -- which is already available as an app for both iOS and Android -- is kind of like a virtual WebMD, allowing you to describe your symptoms and respond to questions from a digital doctor with your own voice. The app provides feedback including tips on how to mitigate symptoms, but stops short of definitively diagnosing any actual ailments for obvious legal reasons....

Hands-on: CalDigit's TS3 LiteThe $199 CalDigit Thunderbolt Station 3 Lite (TS3 Lite) is a Thunderbolt 3 dock geared towards 2016 MacBook Pro users. Unlike some of the docks released prior to the most recent MacBook Pro refresh,... the TS3 Lite works out of the box without needing to employ any hacks or workarounds. The aluminum-wrapped unit comes with dual Thunderbolt 3 ports and is capable of being daisy-chained. It also comes with two USB-A ports, Gigabit Ethernet, DisplayPort, and audio in/out connections. Perhaps most-notably, the TS3 Lite works with the LG UltraFine 5K Display, which makes it an option that may warrant the consideration of those with such a setup. But as you’ll see from our hands-on video walkthrough, the TS3 Lite isn’t for everyone; it’s primarily aimed at customers who don’t require full...

Let that sink in... (no pun intended!) for a minute. SEE ALSO: VR may be hyped, but it'll take 'maybe a decade' to become mainstream The VR headset, which MIT Technology Review says is about as decent as Google Cardboard, was created by Allan Evans, cofounder of the Avegant, the company behind the Glyph headset, and Stephen Greenwood, the director of creative development at Discovery Digital Networks, as a side project to "combine an isolation tank — where you float in a dark, silent room, alone — with virtual reality."

Redfin CTO says machineMachine learning can automate the handling of huge troves of data to help companies make and save money. However, they're not without pitfalls, as the real estate tech company Redfin learned. As... Redfin began building its own machine-learning capabilities, it ran into a problem: Employees weren't using them. Bridget Frey, the firm's CTO, said in an interview that there was a key reason for that: At first, Redfin didn't leave room in these systems for the real estate agents who were supposed to use them to make modifications. For example, a Listings Matchmaker feature generated a list of personalized recommendations for homebuyers, based on their interests.

UPS has unveiled its plan for delivery drones: build them right into trucks, and launch them at various points along their route. The delivery company ran an initial test on Monday, when it claims to... have successfully launched a drone from the top of a truck, let it autonomously deliver a package, and then return to the truck at a different location. While that test might have been successful, UPS's system is still far from being ready for delivery. TechCrunch reports that a second test of the drone failed, with the drone aborting its own launch, falling over, and nearly getting crushed. Still, it's a relatively novel take on how delivery drones could work. Rather than focus on replacing drivers, UPS wants to augment its drivers with...

Apple won't skimp on storageFor the last ten years, Apple has had an odd habit of nickel-and-diming customers over the cost of internal storage. Although the flash storage chip inside the iPhone normally costs Apple $20, it's... stuck with a base level of 16GB of storage for the longest time, only recently springing for a 32GB base option with the iPhone 7. Once you've loaded up the OS, a couple slo-mo videos and a few Spotify playlists, it still isn't enough for most users. Sure, you can buy iCloud storage for a couple bucks a month, but the more logical solution for Apple would be to have a base option fo 64GB, much like most flagship Android phones. According to a supply-chain report from TrendForce, that's exactly what will happen with the iPhone 8. Per the report, the new flagship iPhone 8 will ship with 64GB or...

The latest Facebook spam waveI just spammed all of my friends and family to install an app I had just uninstalled. Installing new apps is a part of the job. It is rare that I will go through a whole day without deciding to check... out an app I haven't heard of before, and a lot of my friends will recommend stuff either for my opinion or to share a new cool thing. It's rare that a new app finds a permanent home on my phone, but I like trying new things so I usually dive in without a ton of research. Today that had an unfortunate side effect, and it's actually part of a nasty spam wave hitting Facebook right now. I got a notification from a friend to try out Chatous via Facebook. Tapping the link takes me right to the Play Store, where I see it is a messaging app that lets you talk with random people in your immediate...
