AWS and NXP unleash limitless IoT opportunity with node-to-cloud connectivity
niedziela, 03 grudnia 2017 16:05

NXP Semiconductors N.V. introduced the LPC54018 MCU-based IoT module with onboard Wi-Fi and support for newly launched Amazon FreeRTOS on Amazon Web Services - offering developers universal connections to AWS. Amazon FreeRTOS provides tools for users to quickly and easily deploy an MCU-based connected device and develop an IoT application without having to worry about the complexity of scaling across millions of devices. Once connected, IoT device applications can take advantage of the capabilities of the cloud or continue processing data locally with AWS Greengrass. The cost and complexity to develop, deploy and manage secure connected nodes have continued to gate the market from realizing the true potential of the IoT.

Revolutionising the future of electronic devices
niedziela, 03 grudnia 2017 11:59

New research by the Universities of St Andrews and Tokyo has revealed an understanding on how to create topological electronic states in solids which could fuel the development of improved materials for fast and energy-efficient electronic devices. The findings could lead to new types of computer chips that could be much more powerful than those found in today’s computers and smart phones. The way in which electrons behave inside a solid is governed by its electronic structure, an intertwined network of ‘bands’ which define the allowed energies and momenta of electrons in the solid. If the right type of bands cross over, this can give rise to interesting, and potentially extremely useful, physical properties of materials.

Google faces UK lawsuit over illegal data collection
niedziela, 03 grudnia 2017 08:06

Google may be forced to pay out compensation to more than 5 million Brits if a class action lawsuit in the UK is successful. A group, labeling itself “Google You Owe Us,” is taking Google to court, claiming it unlawfully collected personal information by bypassing privacy settings on Apple’s iPhone Safari browser. Google, Facebook, and several other online advertising networks were caught in 2012 using a workaround to bypass restrictions, allowing the companies to deposit cookies on an iPhone even if the device was set to block them. While Google claimed at the time its practice was limited to the company’s failed Google+ initiative, the UK lawsuit alleges that Google used the workaround to track “internet browsing history, which Google then used to sell a targeted advertising service.”

Lenovo sells off Wuhan R&D base after lackluster 2017
sobota, 02 grudnia 2017 19:59

Lenovo Group has sold a Wuhan research and development facility to China New Town Development, the computer-maker's latest disposal of a real estate asset this year amid lackluster earnings in its mobile phone and PC businesses, Caixin reports. Beijing-based Lenovo will sell 100% of its equity interest in Lenovo Mobile Communication Software Ltd., a subsidiary whose main asset is the R&D facility, for 1.24 billion yuan, the company said in a Hong Kong Stock Exchange filing on Tuesday. The company established an industrial base in Wuhan in 2012, where it had planned to build R&D and production facilities. The Wuhan facility is still under construction and is expected to be completed in 2018, according to the announcement.

sobota, 02 grudnia 2017 11:55

Google created its AIY Projects initiative - "artificial intelligence yourself" - to encourage developers and DIY enthusiasts to learn about artificial intelligence. The first project in the series, the ready-to-assemble Raspberry Pi-based AIY Voice Kit, was based on a project from MagPi magazine. Now Google has a second project ready for release this year: the AIY Vision Kit. The camera kit comes with a cardboard shell, an AI-capable circuit board, a light-up arcade button, a tiny speaker, a lens kit with both macro and wide settings and various connection components, including a tripod mounting nut. You'll need to supply your own Raspberry Pi Zero W, Raspberry Pi Camera, an SD card and a power supply.

Broadcom delays higher Qualcomm bid until next year
piątek, 01 grudnia 2017 20:04

Broadcom Ltd. isn’t planning to increase its $105 billion offer for Qualcomm Inc. ahead of a proposal next week to replace directors on its board, according to people familiar with the matter. Broadcom doesn’t anticipate increasing its $70-a-share offer until closer to Qualcomm’s board meeting in March, said the people, who asked not to be identified because the matter is private. Broadcom plans to nominate directors to Qualcomm’s board ahead of a Dec. 8 deadline, the people said. For now, Broadcom and its tough-negotiating Chief Executive Officer Hock Tan will lean on a direct appeal to Qualcomm’s shareholders in an effort to pull off the biggest acquisition in the history of technology.

Juniper shares drop after Nokia denies takeover chatter
piątek, 01 grudnia 2017 18:04

Shares of Juniper Networks Inc fell 8 percent in pre-market trade after Finland’s Nokia denied reports that it was in talks to buy the U.S. network gear maker. CNBC on Wednesday reported, citing sources, that Nokia was in talks to buy Juniper at an offer that would value the company at around $16 billion, higher than Juniper’s $11.26 billion market capitalization as of Wednesday’s close. That valuation would imply a price of about $42 per share, a level last seen by Juniper shareholders six years ago, Morningstar analyst Ilya Kundozerov wrote in a client note. Within hours of the CNBC report, however, Nokia, which does not typically comment on market rumors, said it was not preparing an offer for Juniper.

GM to launch autonomous cars in big cities sometime in 2019
piątek, 01 grudnia 2017 16:00

General Motors expects to have autonomous vehicles working commercially in big cities sometime in 2019. The company made the prediction in slides posted on its website ahead of an investor presentation. The company says that based on its current rate of change, it expects "commercial launch at scale" in heavily travelled urban environments in 2019. The slides mention delivery and carrying passengers. GM's Cruise Automation unit is currently testing autonomous Chevrolet Bolt electric vehicles with human backup drivers in San Francisco, Detroit and Phoenix with plans to test in Manhattan next year. Presumably the backup driver would be removed at the time of the commercial launch. The slides say that GM is focused on deploying self-driving vehicles safely but say the company is in the lead vs rival companies.
