The 2017 Audi A4 Allroad talks to you. And it has something important to say. During my recent test, the car sensed when my iPhone was still connected to the USB port. A voice reminded me to take my phone with me. Admittedly, it’s a minor feature on a car that is equipped with multiple safety sensors, including one that adjusts your speed for the car in front of you and shows an alert if you get too close in traffic. Yet the surprise for me is that this is the first car I’ve tested that shows signs of greater awareness about my needs as a driver…when I’m not even driving. You can see how this could evolve. A...

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

When I recently discovered a draft of new guidelines for password management from NIST (the National Institute of Standards and Technology), I was amazed about the number of very progressive changes they proposed.

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

Vince, one of the studio’s proprietors, came in to show Lacy how the mixing boards and monitors worked. Lacy didn’t care; he was just in it for the chair.

Apple could ditch Dialog Semiconductor’s power management chips from the iPhone, analyst says

(Reuters) — Dialog Semiconductor risks losing a crucial supply deal with Apple Inc, according to a financial analyst who cut his rating on the stock on Tuesday, sending the Anglo-German chipmaker’s shares down by as much as one-third. Bankhaus Lampe cut its rating on Dialog to “sell” from “hold” as it argued in a research note that Apple was working on its own battery-saving chip for the iPhone that could replace Dialog’s power management integrated circuits (PMIC) as early as 2019. Apple accounted for more than 70 percent of Dialog’s 2016 sales, the broker estimated. Shares in Dialog fell as much as 36 percent to a seven-month low. By 0831 GMT they were trading down 23.7 percent at 36.39 eur... Read More

HTC U Ultra review: disappointment by a thousand cuts

In a season filled with almost endless smartphone hype and announcements, you’d be forgiven if you missed that HTC, once a major player in the Android world, announced and released a new, high-end phone. That phone, the $750 U Ultra, is the company’s current flagship, and the first major device released under its own name since last spring’s HTC 10. But there’s little about the U Ultra, apart from its screen size (5.7 inches) and price (high), that makes it feel like much of a flagship. The way HTC is selling it — unlocked, through its own online store, and without any carrier involvement — isn't typical for top-tier phones. Even more importantly, the U U... Read More

Apple bringing more chip design in-house to lower costs and speed development

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

(Reuters) – Apple’s decision to stop licensing graphics chips from Imagination Technologies is the clearest example yet of the iPhone maker’s determination to take greater control of the core technologies in its products – both to guard its hefty margins and to position it for future innovations, especially in so-called augmented reality. The strategy, analysts say, has already reduced Apple’s dependence on critical outside suppliers like ARM, now owned by SoftBank. Apple once relied heavily on ARM to design the main processor for the iPhone, but it now licenses only the basic ARM architecture and designs most of the chip itself. More recently, when Apple bought the headphone company Beats Electronics, p... Read More
