The reality of M&A for augmented and virtual reality

In Business, Government, Mobile Technology, Start Up by Venture BeatLeave a Comment

Tech News Keywords: , , , , , , ,

Despite Facebook’s blockbuster $3 billion Oculus acquisition in 2014, augmented and virtual reality has been too early stage for large scale mergers and acquisitions (M&A) so far. But that’s set to change in the next year to 18 months, so let’s look at what could drive M&A deals going forward. Where Digi-Capital’s Augmented/Virtual Reality Report Q1 2017 and deals database tracked $1.5 billion investments in the last 12 months to Q1 2017, there was only $600 million of M&As in the same period. That dynamic of investments... Read More

How Apple can fix news

In Business, Government, Mobile Technology by Venture BeatLeave a Comment

Tech News Keywords: , , ,

Two months ago, Tim Cook railed against the rise of “mind-killing” fake news and pledged Apple News’s support in the battle against it. And so far, Apple News has done an admirable job of curtailing false news. But it’s done a lousy job of elevating good journalism. Here’s why that’s an issue: Starting with iOS 10, Apple News comes as a preinstalled widget on the iPhone. Because few people customize their widgets, Apple News enjoys undue influence in shaping daily news perception. With that power, Apple has had the opportunity to usher-in a new standard for digital journalism. Instead, it has eschewed bold stro... Read More

Encrypted Chat Took Over. Let’s Encrypt Calls, Too

As end-to-end encrypted messaging apps have exploded in popularity, several well-known services have added encrypted calls as well. Why not, right? If it works for text-based chat, voice seems like a natural extension. If only it were that easy.Encrypting calls has plenty of value, keeping conversations strictly between the two parties. They can circumvent government wiretaps, or criminal snooping. But a host of technical challenges with facilitating the calls themselves has slowed the spread of voice over internet protocol overall. Bandwidth is expensive. Firewalls and network filters make it harder to route data streams. Even basic call quality issues, like delays and echoes, prove difficult to fix.

Samsung Galaxy S8 review: ahead of the curve

Tech News Keywords: , , , , , , , , ,

People "aren’t excited by new phones anymore." That’s the first thing Samsung’s product manager said to me before introducing the company’s new flagship Galaxy S8 last month. He’s not wrong: the modern concept of the smartphone has been around for a decade now, and the differences between devices are exceedingly incremental. It doesn’t help that virtually every smartphone looks the same, too. So for the Galaxy S8, Samsung made an effort to do something different. It combined everything it did in the past few generations of its phones and added some new ideas to produce something different from everything else on t... Read More

If you’re a smartphone company and your last major product caused fires and explosions and had to be removed from the market, you’d want to make sure your next big phone model really stands out and is an object of desire. Samsung did exactly that with the new Galaxy S8, which goes on sale this week for the very hefty starting price of $750 at most US carriers ($720 at Verizon). The S8 is a fast, versatile phone with fine cameras. But by far its biggest benefit is this: it fits a big screen into a surprisingly small, comfortable-to-hold, easy-to-carry body. And the end result is a visual and tactile triumph. There are some trade-offs that resu... Read More

Google is adding a new way to let you purchase goods and services through Android Pay. On Tuesday, the company announced a new partnership that lets consumers use PayPal as a payment method, be it in-store, in-app, or online. Now shoppers in the U.S., instead of using a debit or credit card, can use PayPal. Using services like Android Pay, Samsung Pay, and Apple Pay was predicated on the fact that people had to have a credit or debit card. But what about those who prefer alternative means of payment? Google has made Android Pay more accessible to those that want to experience the tap-and-go experience without linking their card by partnering with PayPal.
