Many people who need only occasional Internet access for their own laptop can simply tether to their phones as necessary, but Verizon’s Jetpack AC791L provides a more stable connection and can handle multiple computers and tablets for extended periods. It has been our pick since early 2016, and it remains our favorite because it gets almost 20 hours to a charge, supports 802.11ac Wi-Fi, and can even recharge your phone in a pinch. Those features put it ahead of newer models like the Jetpack MiFi 7730L, which gets only about 12 hours of run time. But it’s really the network that matters most here, and ... Read More

One of his takeaways from the experience was that the iPhone will likely never be made in a US factory. Here's why. Following is a transcript of the video.I don't think any kind of labor intensive factories can be relocated to the US.It's just because the wages are just too low. You are paying 2,320 yuan to Chinese workers, which is about $400. How are you going to pay [that] in terms of base salary? Base salary to American workers?Even if the factories are relocated in the US, ask a lot of the work will be replaced by machines. Because I do see a lot of work... Read More

In Healthcare, Mobile Technology by Wired NewsLeave a Comment

Tech News Keywords: ,

Modern cameras are little more than computers that take photographs. Open one up and you’ll find a circuit board and chips and sensors. But an old camera, now that’s a gadget, filled with gears and springs and levers. It feels almost alive. The shutter fires with a delightful click, the film advances with a satisfying ratchet, and the back closes with a lovely click-CLACK!Most people don’t know this, because they’ve only ever made pictures with a smartphone. But Kent Krugh delights in peering inside old cameras, whiling away his time after work X-raying every one he gets his hands on.

For the better part of a decade, there was nothing more impressive than owning a BlackBerry.

BlackBerry KeyOne review: part productivity, part nostalgia

It was in about the third hour of using the new BlackBerry KeyOne, available for preorder now for $549 unlocked, that I started to question my longtime preference for touchscreen keyboards. Because as I was pushing on the KeyOne’s tiny little buttons with the tips of my thumbs, I remembered why some people still have such an affinity for these things. It wasn’t that I was able to type faster with the BlackBerry’s keyboard (I wasn’t), or that I was more accurate with it (I still used autocorrect). It was that I felt like I was more productive when using it. I wasn’t wasting time tweeting nonsense or sending emoji in ephemeral messages. I was sendi... Read More

Imagination Technologies begins ‘dispute resolution procedure’ with Apple over licensing agreement

Tech News Keywords: ,

(Reuters) — Imagination Technologies said it had started a “dispute resolution procedure” with Apple, its biggest customer, after failing to resolve a standoff over licensing between the two companies. Imagination said in April that Apple had notified the British firm it was developing its own graphics chips and would no longer use Imagination’s processing designs in 15 months to two years time. The potential loss of Apple, which accounts for about half of the British firm’s revenue, sent its shares down 70 percent on the day, and the stock has barely recovered. It has also sent shudders through other Apple suppliers. Apple has used Imagination’s technology in its products from the time of the iP... Read More

The world’s most valuable company will today drop its latest quarterly earnings report — chock-full of data points that will be pulled apart and scrutinized by thousands of bloggers and analysts. Will iPad sales stop dropping? Did the new, late-quarter iPhones goose sales a bit? Did the bleeding in China stop? Are Services still growing fast enough to make up for weakness in hardware? The reality is that none of this really matters as far as Apple is concerned. Apple’s stock has been hitting record highs of late. Basically, investors are giving the company enormous credit because it managed to stop revenue from falling last quarter. And they are betting that the report today will deliver modest, but not spectacular, ... Read More
