Audi, BMW, Mercedes Favored by Nokia for Maps Deal

June 27th, 2015

Nokia is aiming to pressure the bidders to increase their offer by continuing to entertain offers from others, said the people, who asked not to be identified because the talks are private. The maker of telecommunications equipment, favors selling its maps business to Audi, BMW and Mercedes-Benz, although price differences remain, according to people familiar with the matter.

The carmakers, who are key clients for the technology and first approached the Finnish company about a sale, may hesitate to pay the as much as $4 billion being sought for the unit, known as HERE, the sources said.

Nokia is seeking to sell the mapping unit as it focuses on mobile-network equipment. It agreed to buy Alcatel-Lucent in April to create the world’s largest supplier of the equipment. The company may still decide not to sell HERE, CEO Rajeev Suri told France’s National Assembly this week. The potential valuation of as much as $4 billion suggests Nokia’s mapping assets have lost much of their value since 2008, when the company spent $8.1 billion to buy map provider Navteq.

A spokeswoman for Nokia declined to comment. Representatives for Audi, Daimler, Apax and Baidu declined to comment. BMW couldn’t be immediately reached by email outside of regular business hours.

Samsung believes they have bigger uses in the future once they’re integrated with Intel’s RealSense technology, which the company will be targeting at the personalized shopping market. The company will also be teaming up with Intel to make use of its Real Sense technology, in order to create displays that can also interact with their viewers.

Samsung showcased the technology as an ad billboard and virtual necklace stand, but plans to build the technology into a virtual fitting room, where users can see what various items of clothing would look like before having to try them on.

Intel Real Sense seems like a good fit for this type of market too. The Real Sense platform consists of a series of 3D cameras and a software suite that can recognise people, their actions and surroundings, similar to what Microsoft did with Kinect. O.M.G. you guys. Shopping addicts’ dreams are becoming reality with Samsung’s new Mirror and Transparent OLED displays.

The technology supports gesture controls and face tracking, can measure distances, and can scan objects to be ported into 3D environments. This could lead to some quite novel interactive shopping and ad experiences in the future.

As for the actual display technology, Samsung boasts some big improvements over the competitors in the transparent display market. The company says that its transparent OLED technology has a substantially higher color gamut, increased transmittance and superior viewing angles than conventional LCD alternatives. For comparison, Samsung’s transparency level reaches 40 percent, compared with just 10 percent for LCD. LG’s similar technology was at around 30 percent transparency last year.

Capcom Gets a Jump on E3, Announces Mega Man Legacy Collection, Resident Evil 0 Remake and more

June 11th, 2015

Fans have quite literally been begging for Capcom to rerelease the original Mega Man games for years now. Capcom has heard. Capcom’s E3 lineup won’t be much of a surprise when the show rolls around next week. Today the studio announced the upcoming release of the Mega Man Legacy Collection, which includes the original six Mega Man titles in all of their 8-bit glory.

That’s because the developer and publisher has already released details regarding much of what it plans to show off including a new collection of Mega Man remakes as well as playable demos of Resident Evil 0 and Devil May Cry 4 Special Edition.

Mega Man Legacy Collection will include what Capcom calls faithful reproductions of the six original Mega Man games. It’ll also feature a new Challenge Mode that remixes gameplay segments from all six games with scalable difficulty for both newcomers and Mega Man veterans. Museum Mode, meanwhile, consists of a collection of history, high-res art and other original concept pieces from the popular franchise.

Look for it to launch on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC this summer before arriving on the Nintendo 3DS come winter. The features will be meta, including a Museum mode featuring a ton of artwork from the games, a Database with information on all of the enemies and access to practice against them, and then a Challenge mode replete with its own Leaderboards and Replays for top performers.

Capcom will also allow attendees to play a demo of Resident Evil 0, a remastered version of the popular prequel to the original Resident Evil. For those unfamiliar, the Resident Evil 0 was launched in 2002 and delves into what really happened before the mansion incident that jumpstarted the franchise.

Planting Microchips Under Employees’ Skin

June 10th, 2015

The technology has been around for some years now, but the use of RFID (radio-frequency identification) chips and other beneath-the-skin implants has only recently become more widespread.

A high-tech office complex in Sweden is now offering tenants’ staff the option of having a small RFID chip implanted in one’s wrist that allows certain functions in the building to be performed with a wave of the hand, such as opening doors and operating photocopiers.

Epicenter office block developers are in support of the implanting program, which is being made available through a Swedish bio-hacking group. The group promotes the use of bio-enhancement technology and predicts a future in which sophisticated implant systems will closely monitor a range of inputs from body sensors while interacting with the “internet of things.”

In other words, we will soon have the option of being physically connected to the Internet as well as to an increasingly widespread network of smart devices.

For many, the idea of having an implant containing personal information inserted under the skin is not a welcome option. Not only is there maybe something creepy about the whole idea to begin with, but the fact is that a lot of us feel our privacy and autonomy has been compromised enough already, without voluntarily becoming walking transmitters of our personal data.

Some predict that one day it won’t be a matter of choice, or that the use of implants and other types of bio-enhancement and connectivity will become so commonplace as to be expected, if not required. The fear is that we will lose our freedom and privacy in the process.

Others welcome the prospect of becoming physically connected to the internet of things, such as the bio-hacking group responsible for the office block’s RFID program.

NHTSA wants to use technology to curb drunk driving

June 10th, 2015

Don’t drive while you drunk! Or you’ll be dead.

Eliminating drunk driving is just one of the many benefits self-driving cars are expected to deliver once they become commonplace in the coming years. Until then, advocates like the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) are researching other forms of technology to help curb the problem.

What is NHTSA? Acoording from Wikipedia: The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is an agency of the Executive Branch of the U.S. government, part of the Department of Transportation. It describes its mission as “Save lives, prevent injuries, reduce vehicle-related crashes.”

Windows 10, Skylake & Thunderbolt 3 bring the most compelling reasons to upgrade in a long while

June 6th, 2015

Much of the tech press regularly overlooks PCs for wearables, smart homes, and IoT-related topics but, in the real world and to many people, PCs still matter a lot. So, this week’s news out of Redmond and Taipei (where the annual Computex Trade show is being held) are actually really important.

To wit, Microsoft finally unveiled the official release date for Windows 10 (July 29) and Intel released more details about its next generation CPUs and chipsets, which are expected in PCs shipping in August. The combination of all these technologies will lead to not only the best performing PCs we’ve seen, but also the most capable, most flexible, and most expandable as well. Windows 10 brings back the Start Menu and melds it together with elements of Windows 8 that really were useful once you got used to them (such as Tiles), while adding fascinating new extras like Cortana, Windows Hello for biometric authentication (e.g., log-in with your fingerprint, face or eventually, eye), and better integration with other Microsoft services (OneDrive, Xbox, Skype, etc.) The net result is a genuinely better OS both Windows 7 and Windows 8 users should be quite happy with.

Intel’s Skylake CPUs are expected to bring better battery life for notebooks and 2-in-1s, greatly improved graphics performance, and support for faster DDR-4 memory. More importantly, the companion chipsets launching with Skylake are also going to enable several key new system-level capabilities including wireless charging (although, initially, with a hit to notebook thin-ness) and the introduction of Thunderbolt 3.

Now admittedly, most people lost interest in PC connectivity standards a long time ago, but Thunderbolt 3.0 looks to be a big change because it brings together the new USB type C connector along with significantly expanded capability and throughput. Specifically, the 40 Gbps data transfer rate of Thunderbolt 3.0 will support up to two daisy-chained 4K displays (as well as external storage) and up to 100 W of electrical power over a single cable.

The Evolution of Technology – The History of Computers

June 3rd, 2015

While computers are now an important part of the lives of human beings, there was a time where computers did not exist. Knowing the history of computers and how much progression has been made can help you understand just how complicated and innovative the creation of computers really is.

Unlike most devices, the computer is one of the few inventions that does not have one specific inventor. Throughout the development of the computer, many people have added their creations to the list required to make a computer work. Some of the inventions have been different types of computers, and some of them were parts required to allow computers to be developed further.

The Beginning

Perhaps the most significant date in the history of computers is the year 1936. It was in this year that the first “computer” was developed. It was created by Konrad Zuse and dubbed the Z1 Computer. This computer stands as the first as it was the first system to be fully programmable. There were devices prior to this, but none had the computing power that sets it apart from other electronics.

It wasn’t until 1942 that any business saw profit and opportunity in computers. This first company was called ABC computers, owned and operated by John Atanasoff and Clifford Berry. Two years later, the Harvard Mark I computer was developed, furthering the science of computing.

Over the course of the next few years, inventors all over the world began to search more into the study of computers, and how to improve upon them. Those next ten years say the introduction of the transistor, which would become a vital part of the inner workings of the computer, the ENIAC 1 computer, as well as many other types of systems. The ENIAC 1 is perhaps one of the most interesting, as it required 20,000 vacuum tubes to operate. It was a massive machine, and started the revolution to build smaller and faster computers.

How to Get Out of Google’s Sandbox

May 22nd, 2015

OMG, Google’s sandbox, If your web site has good rankings on Yahoo, MSN and other search engines but not on Google, it’s likely that your web site has been put into Google’s sandbox.

What is Google’s sandbox?

In general, brand-new web sites with new domain names need about 6 – 8 months to get top rankings on Google.

The usual process is that Google indexes the new web site, lists it for some less important queries and then the web pages drop from the search engine result pages for several months. Although other search engines work fine, Google doesn’t list the web site, sometimes not even for the company name.

If you have a brand-new web site, don’t worry about this behavior. You are not doing anything wrong. Google seems to delay the inclusion of new web sites. This phenomenon is called the Google sandbox.

Why does Google delay the inclusion of brand-new web sites?

It seems that Google delays the inclusion of brand-new web sites to encourage webmasters to build content instead of building mini-networks.

Many webmasters try to artificially inflate the link popularity of their web site by creating a network of small web sites with different URLs that all link to each other. Many of these web sites have no purpose other than linking to the main web site.

By delaying the ranking of new web sites, this mini-network strategy doesn’t offer a quick jump to the top anymore. The delay might encourage webmasters to focus on the content of their main web site instead of building useless mini sites.

What can you do to get out of the sandbox?

If you have a new web site, expect that your web site will be listed within 6-8 months in Google. Add content to your web site, get good incoming links and make sure that your web pages are optimized for Google.
