Samsung teases a reveal for its foldable, dual-screen smartphone.


It sure seems like the Korean phone maker will show off the device at its developer conference next month.


Samsung is getting closer to taking the wraps off its foldable smartphone, a prototype of which has supposedly been in the works for years now. In a tweet sent late last week, the company teased a big reveal of the device, or at least a prototype version of it, describing its upcoming developer conference as “the crossroads between the present and the future” and showing a subtle graphic of two lines unfolding into a right-facing arrow.


We’ve been hearing for a while now that Samsung was close to showing off its foldable phone. Samsung CEO DJ Koh hinted in an interview with CNBC in September that the product could arrive as soon as this year, but we still haven’t seen any hardware, even in just the prototype phase.




That looks like it could change as early as next month, with it now more likely than ever that either some form of the device’s software interface or perhaps some actual hardware will be on display at the Samsung Developer Conference in San Francisco, which starts November 7th.


So far, all we have to go on is this 2014 concept video showing what such a device might look like and how it could be used to fold a phone in two and noticeably reduce its size. Prior to that, Samsung showed off a prototype flexible AMOLED display way back in 2012.

Article inside YouTube invests $20 million in educational tutorial and DIY videos

Quote:

Google’s YouTube is investing $20 million into getting more educational videos ranging from cooking tutorials to science explainers on its platform.

The move will provide more brand-safe content for marketers to advertise on. YouTube videos have faced closer scrutiny since March 2017, when a Times of London report revealed advertisements from top brands were running next to neo-Nazi and jihadist content. It faced another challenge in November 2017 after ads were shown appearing next to sexualized child-related content. The company has made several moves to address the issues, including becoming more selective on which YouTube channels are eligible for monetization.

This investment into educational content, which was announced on Monday as part of the YouTube Learning initiative introduced in July 2017, earmarks $20 million to fun the videos and expands support for these kinds of video creators. It also introduces more ways for brands to find appropriate YouTube videos.

“What we’re really interested in is spotlighting and supporting very trustworthy and credible content,” Malik Ducard, YouTube’s global head of learning, said.

Initial grant recipients include TedEd, the educational arm of Ted Conferences, and Vox, as well as YouTube creators Crash Course and Socratica.

“I used to teach a classroom of kids, 30 kids at a time” said Kimberly Harrison, head writer and producer of Socratica. “Now I teach hundreds of thousands at a time. It’s amazing.”

YouTube will also introduce a new channel called Learning, which will become a hub to find tutorials, DIY videos, explainers and skill-based content. Other organizations will provide additional videos, including job skills clips from Goodwill. The videos will be selected using automated and human-selected techniques.

Marketers will be able to advertise on these kinds of videos through a partnership between YouTube and influencer marketing company FameBit. The two companies are working together to connect educational video creators with brands for sponsored opportunities.

In addition, YouTube will grow its educational conference YouTube EduCon to India and the U.K, add more online courses for YouTube creators looking to make educational videos, and hosting a NextUp creator camp for educational video creators.

“If you’ve watched the polarization of the people in this country, [educational videos] kind of bring people together,” Destin Sandlin, who created YouTube channel Smarter Every Day and educational video conference ThinkerCon, explained. “It’s kind of a media literacy thing as well.”

Article inside Facebook reportedly looking to acquire a cybersecurity firm in the wake of its most recent

| By BuyGold - 2 hours ago



Quote:

Facebook is in the market for cybersecurity help. The Information reported this weekend that the social network giant is looking to acquire a cybersecurity firm, likely to gain key security talent and to serve as a positive public relations move. Two anonymous sources tell The Information that the company has approached multiple firms about a possible purchase and that this deal could close by end of the year. It isn’t clear what kind of security help the company is looking to acquire.

This news comes nearly a month after Facebook announced that hackers stole access tokens for 30 million accounts (pared down from an initial estimate of 50 million), allowing them to gain complete access to these user profiles. Of those 30 million, the hackers accessed basic contact information (name and either email or phone number) for 14 million accounts, and additional data like gender, religion, location, device information, and the 15 most recent searches for another 15 million accounts. No information was accessed for the remaining 1 million accounts. As a reminder: you can check to see if your account was compromised here.

The company clearly needs to not only up its security but also make its efforts to do so clear, so an acquisition makes sense.

People could be banned from uploading videos to YouTube under new EU rules

2 people viewing this

| By BuyGold - 2 hours ago

Quote:

YouTube says that new EU copyright rules could force it to ban people from uploading their own videos.

It says that the new directive puts its entire creative community at risk and that the new rules could "drastically change the internet that you see today".

The comments from YouTube boss Susan Wojcicki‏ are just one part of widespread outrage about the new rules, which campaigners have referred to as the 'meme ban'.

One of the most controversial part of the EU's new copyright directive, known as article 13, will force major platforms like YouTube to scan through everything uploaded to them and ensure that nothing in it includes copyrighted content. Campaigners argue that could force companies to ban memes that use pictures or gifs from existing media, and that it could damage the way that social networks operate.

Opposition to the rules has united copyright campaigners and the major internet platforms, which have argued that it could undermine the very way the internet works. Now YouTube has spoken out in perhaps the most passionate comments from the tech industry yet.

The company said that YouTube could be forced to stop allowing normal users to upload videos, instead concentrating them in the hands of a small number of big companies. Viewers in the EU could be blocked from viewing some videos and small creators could be ruined, the company said.

Ms Wojcicki wrote that article 13 "threatens to shut down the ability of millions of people – from creators like you to everyday users – to upload content to platforms like YouTube", in a letter written to the site's community of video creators. "It threatens to block users in the EU from viewing content that is already live on the channels of creators everywhere," she wrote.

The new rules also "threaten hundreds of thousands of jobs", she said.

"The proposal could force platforms, like YouTube, to allow only content from a small number of large companies," she wrote. "​It would be too risky for platforms to host content from smaller original content creators, because the platforms would now be directly liable for that content."

Article 13 is just one part of a sweeping set of copyright rules that proponents claim will help fight against the theft and reuse of videos and music. Another controversial part of the rules is article 11, which will create a "link tax" and mean that sites like Google could have to pay to show a snippet of the websites they link out to.

EU lawmakers have voted through the new rules and their wording could be finalised by the end of the year. The directive is expected to go into force soon after that.

Image inside From China the land of fake: Huawei and Oppo banned from 3dMark for cheating

Huawei and Oppo devices caught cheating in benchmarks, 3DMark promptly delists them

In-house tests by 3DMark show Oppo falsifying performance scores for its latest Find X flagship smartphone and more. The news further damages the reputations of Chinese smartphone OEMs at a time when the U.S. government is already suspicious of telecommunication devices from China.



Huawei and Oppo devices caught cheating in benchmarks, 3DMark promptly delists them (Source: 3DMark)

Dishonest marketing isn't new, but smartphone OEMs are becoming notorious for pushing things a bit too far. 3DMark has informed press outlets that it recently removed both the Oppo Find X and Oppo F7 smartphones from its database rankings due to "artificially high and misleading benchmarks scores". The Find X was previously listed as the fourth best smartphone in the Sling Shot Extreme benchmark, but it is now unranked.



To catch the fake scores, 3DMark runs suspect smartphones through public and private versions of the same benchmark. If the final scores in the public benchmark are significantly higher than in the private benchmark, then the smartphone is likely equipped with specialized software made to recognize specific benchmarks which would be against 3DMark's guidelines. In Oppo's case, the final score was 41 percent higher in the public benchmark when compared to the private benchmark even though both benchmarks are identical.

3DMark has informed Oppo of the misleading numbers and Oppo admitted to cheating the system. Nonetheless, the Chinese OEM is promising to "strive to distinguish between the requirements of undetected apps or the subjective needs of users".

The news comes one month after 3DMark caught Huawei falsifying benchmark scores on some of its top smartphones. The Huawei P20 Pro, P20, Nova 3, and Honor Play were all delisted for the same reasons.

Google keyboard float option

| By precys - 1 day ago

The new option on the Google keyboard is fu*king dope and the perfect size too!!! Being able to move it to the top helps holding the phone more centered and balanced in my hand. If you got an Android phone with a large screen, try it!! It's fun to try out and actually see how simple but great it is!! LMAO









The option is located by opening the keyboard and hitting the Google logo (look at previous picture, the logo is top left of keyboard) then hit the 3 dot menu and you'll see "floating"

Déjà vu: Pixel 3 and 3 XL video recordings have poor audio

3 people viewing this

| By KingP1n - 3 days ago

Quote:


Google's Pixels are known for their software quality, but they're also known for launching with random issues, like last year's Pixel 2 audio quality problems when recording video. The theme continues with this year's Pixel 3 phones, and the first problem reviewers have noticed with Google's latest flagships is — you guessed it — another microphone/audio issue.

visit this link https://www.youtube.com/w .. ?v=S9qNHYtNsik

The problem was first brought to prominence by YouTuber SuperSaf TV, whose video (embedded just above) highlights the difference in recorded audio quality when compared to the iPhone Xs Max. Former Android Police YouTuber Jerome Ortega also noted the same difference in quality on his smaller Pixel 3.

In short, audio recorded by the Pixel 3 and 3 XL in videos sounds exceptionally tinny and distant. We haven't confirmed if the issue exists outside video (my own Pixel 3 is yet to arrive, so I can't check for myself), but the examples we've seen from video results are poor enough on their own to warrant concern.

Hopefully, like last time, this is something that Google is able to fix with an update. We've reached out to Google for comment on this story, and we'll update if any is provided. At least external microphone support is coming, right?

A spokesperson from Google responded to our inquiry for comment with the following statement:

We made several advances in the audio recording capabilities of Pixel 3, including enabling stereo recording in landscape mode. When recording outdoors, our tuning is specifically designed to reduce background noise like wind and road noise and overly loud sounds and optimize for audible speech. To achieve this, we selectively de-emphasize some frequencies, which minimizes disruptive noises and optimizes the resulting audio. We do extensive user testing of our products to ensure they are tuned for real world usage, and we're always looking at additional tuning opportunities based on user feedback

Take from that what you will, but it seems, like the Pixel 3 XL's speaker issues, Google considers its microphone performance to be "specifically designed" with this result in mind.

Image inside Pixel 3 XLs Much Improved Display is a Samsung OLED

2 people viewing this

| By 21 - 7 days ago


The Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL feature AMOLED displays that are dramatically improved over last year’s Pixel 2 XL. You all remember the drama that surrounded the Pixel 2 XL’s blue shifting and possible burn-in, right? This year, those complaints haven’t been there and there’s a good reason for it.

Google is using a Samsung OLED panel, according to a teardown by iFixit. Last year on the Pixel 2 XL, Google used a P-OLED panel made by LG and the reaction to it wasn’t exactly pretty.

Video inside Pixel 3 XL vs iPhone XS Max Camera Test Comparison

3 people viewing this

| By mr_underground - 7 days ago

Iphone crushed it with video, no competition and photos were even pixel applies ultra sharpening while iphone softens so its preference also iphone applies warming while pixel applies cooling.

pound the iphone was better as its rear camera is overall better, while pixels selfie cam is superior this year but because pixel has no usable video capabilities it loses.

summary: iphone is better overall. for still the pixel is great while the iphone is good. for video the iphone is superior while pixel sucks.

so if you want a complete camera ecosystem it has to be iphone.

Article inside Apple signs $600 million deal with European chipmaker Dialog

2 people viewing this

| By BuyGold - 1 week ago



Quote:

Apple is buying part of Dialog Semiconductor, a chipmaker based in Germany. The iPhone manufacturer is interested in Dialog's power-management technology and has put forward $300 million for it.

On top of this, Apple has committed an additional $300 million to make purchases from other parts of Dialog's business, making this the largest deal the company has undertaken. As part of the arrangement Apple will acquire patents from the chipmaker as well as 300 staff.

Dialog and Apple have been working together for some time already -- the power-management chips have been a feature of iPhones for many years -- and news of this latest deal caused shares in the chipmaker to leap by 34 percent. The transfer of employees represents 16 percent of Dialog's workforce, and the deal also sees Apple acquiring facilities in Italy, the UK and Germany.

Revealing details of the deal, Dialog says:

Dialog Semiconductor plc today announces an agreement with Apple Inc. to license certain of its power management technologies, transfer certain of its assets and over 300 employees to Apple to support chip research and development. Apple will pay $300 million in cash for the transaction and prepay $300 million for Dialog products to be delivered over the next three years. The employees who are being transferred have worked closely with Apple for many years, and this transition will foster deeper collaboration between the two companies.

Dialog also announces that it has been awarded a broad range of new contracts from Apple for the development and supply of power management, audio subsystem, charging and other mixed-signal integrated circuits. Revenue from the new contracts is expected to be realized starting in 2019 and accelerating in 2020 and 2021.

Dialog CEO Jalal Bagherli says:

This transaction reaffirms our long-standing relationship with Apple, and demonstrates the value of the strong business and technologies we have built at Dialog. Going forward, we will have a clear strategic focus, building on our custom and configurable mixed-signal IC expertise and worldclass power-efficient design. Our execution track record, deep customer relationships, and talented employees give us great confidence in our future growth prospects.

The transaction is expected to be completed in the first half of 2019, subject to regulatory approval.

Video inside Samsung Chromebook Plus V2 (LTE) coming soon -- a great Microsoft Surface alternative

2 people viewing this

| By BuyGold - 1 week ago



Quote:

Windows 10 has been a dumpster fire lately, but thankfully, Microsoft's OS stranglehold on the consumer PC business is dramatically diminishing. These days, many consumers would be better served by purchasing a MacBook or Chromebook rather than a laptop running the less-secure Windows. True, Apple's computers are expensive, but luckily, laptops running Chrome OS can be quite affordable. Chromebooks are shockingly capable too -- especially since Android app support was added.

Just as Samsung manufactures excellent smartphones running Google's Android operating system, it also makes quality laptops running the search giant's Linux-based Chrome OS. The Samsung Chromebook Plus V2 is one of the nicer Chromebooks, and today, the company unveils a new variant. The hardware stays the same, except for one addition -- LTE compatibility. In other words, the Samsung Chromebook Plus V2 (LTE), as it is called, is fully functional without Wi-Fi -- just add a mobile data plan!

"When innovation powerhouses come together, as Samsung, Google, and Intel have many times over many years, we're able to meet consumers' needs in ways we haven’t been able to before. With the Samsung Chromebook Plus V2 (LTE), we're bringing to market a premium device at an affordable price. Fittingly, it's one that will help consumers do things they weren't able to do before -- to connect their primary devices, such as Chromebooks, wherever and whenever," says Alanna Cotton, VP and GM of Computing and Wearables, Samsung Electronics America.

Josh Newman, general manager of Mobile PC Segments, Intel Client Computing Group explains, "People demand their devices match their level of always-on performance in order to achieve, contribute and be their best. Samsung's new Chromebook Plus V2 (LTE) device meets this expectation with style by fusing Samsung design ingenuity and Google's popular OS with Intel processors and Intel LTE connectivity."

The Samsung Chromebook Plus V2 (LTE) is surprisingly affordable at just $599.99 -- a much better value than a Surface Pro or Surface Laptop. It will be available for purchase beginning next month, on November 2, 2018. It will be sold from two retailers -- Verizon and Best Buy -- plus from Samsung directly. It will be interesting to see if Verizon offers a discount in exchange for signing up for LTE data service.
