Google's Transition API allows developers to access context-aware features

Wed, 21 Mar 2018 16:31:00 -0500

(image) Google says that it has heard from app developers that they are spending too much time working with location and sensor data just to determine when an Android user has started or ended certain activities like walking or driving. And all of the checking that an app needs to do to ascertain whether the user is just starting his travels or is at his destination takes a toll on a phone's battery life...

The Apple iPhone exaggerates the U.S. trade deficit with China

Wed, 21 Mar 2018 12:40:00 -0500

(image) While scouring Twitter, you might have come across a tweet or two from President Donald Trump lambasting U.S. corporations and government officials for running trade deficits with certain countries. First, a little Economics 101. A trade deficit results when the value of our imports from a specific country exceeds our exports to them. If the value of our exports to a country is greater than the value of our imports, it is called a trade surplus...

Wed, 21 Mar 2018 10:29:00 -0500

(image) Facebook is in a bit of a pickle over a new data-siphoning scandal. Long story short — one of these fun little poll apps that asks for access to your Facebook profile wasn't so innocent and a company that specializes in advising politicians used it to gather tons of data. Oopsie.(image)

Wed, 21 Mar 2018 10:11:00 -0500

(image) And just like that, the Galaxy S9 and S9+ have been on the market for nearly a week now. They are not massive improvements over their precursors, the Galaxy S8 and S8+, but that's normal - after all, it's really hard to come up with meaningful innovations for those two devices, which were already as close to perfect as it gets...(image)

Wed, 21 Mar 2018 08:14:00 -0500

(image) The mysterious "serial bomber" that terrorized Texans is no more, as cell phone triangulation techniques revealed the Round Rock, TX hotel, where the suspect was hiding, and SWAT teams swooped in to enter in a car chase with him. According to the chief of Austin Police, Brian Manley, "as members of the Austin police department SWAT team approached the vehicle, the suspect detonated a bomb inside, knocking one of our SWAT officers back, and one of our SWAT officers fired at the suspect as well."


Verizon CEO: 5G phones and devices to have monster battery life

Wed, 21 Mar 2018 07:47:00 -0500

(image) Imagine a future where your phone will have to be charged just once a month. Crazy? Verizon's CEO begs to differ. While taking part in a panel discussion during a tech conference, he clarified that what 5G networks will bring in terms of added value aren't crazy high download speeds, as 4G LTE can be fast enough at the moment, too, rivaling home broadband, but low latency, and the ability to handle much more crowded tower connections.

AT&T offers the same very deal now (sans the Costco cash card, of course), but running until the end of the month, and folding the Note 8 into its warm, loving embrace, too.(image)

The iPhone X successor may be priced much cheaper, as Apple cuts costs

Wed, 21 Mar 2018 06:25:00 -0500

(image) The next edition of Apple's first handset with OLED display panel, though, is shaping up to cost much less in terms of parts and assembly costs, as components have fallen in price significantly, reports an analyst, citing supply chain sources out of Taiwan. By now, it is no mystery what Apple's 2018 crop of iPhones may look like - one iPhone X successor with 5.8" OLED display by Samsung, a 6.1" iPhone 9 with LCD screen, and an iPhone Xs Plus, or whatever Apple calls it, with a giant 6.45" OLED screen, supplied most likely by LG.(image)

T-Mobile puts the blame for its anemic prepaid growth on AT&T

Wed, 21 Mar 2018 05:05:00 -0500

(image) T-Mobile posted a very good last quarter, but noted a stark decrease in prepaid subscribers, pretty unusual for the Un-carrier. The user base for its prepaid offers increased with 149,000, a far cry from the 260,000 posted in Q3. Compare that to the sequential growth in postpaid subs, from 595,000 to 891,000, and you'll see what got T-Mobile worried, not to mention the fall from 541,000 net prepaids in Q4 2016.(image)
