Comcast also said it would divest another 2.5 million subscribers into a new publicly traded company, dubbed SpinCo for now, to be one-third owned by Charter and two-thirds owned by Comcast shareholders.

Reports of the problem surfaced last week and come less than a month after the phone's global launch, with Samsung banking on the S5 to outdo its predecessor and rebuild momentum for the brand in an increasingly competitive market. "We have discovered that the issue has been seen in a very limited portion of early production Galaxy S5 units, and was caused by complications in the ROM (Read Only Memory) component which stores the information necessary to operate the camera," Samsung said in an e-mailed statement. Customers affected by the S5 camera failure should contact Samsung's customer service or the mobile service provider, she said.

  • 34/50   Microsoft rushes to fix browser after attacks; no fix for XP users
    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    By Jim Finkle BOSTON (Reuters) - Microsoft Corp is rushing to fix a bug in its widely used Internet Explorer web browser after a computer security firm disclosed the flaw over the weekend, saying hackers have already exploited it in attacks on some U.S. companies. PCs running Windows XP will not receive any updates fixing that bug when they are released, however, because Microsoft stopped supporting the 13-year-old operating system earlier this month. Security firms estimate that between 15 and 25 percent of the world's PCs still run Windows XP. Microsoft disclosed on Saturday its plans to fix the bug in an advisory to its customers posted on its security website, which it said is present in Internet Explorer versions 6 to 11.

    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    Whenever we see a self-driving car, we're always nervous that it won't see us and steamroller us straight into the tarmac. It's a fear that Google is trying to quell with its latest video, revealing that the vehicles are constantly tweaked to better understand and navigate the obstacles of California. In the clip we learn that the cars can now spot a cyclist's arm-waving, and will wait until they've passed before moving along.

    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    Samsung on Friday confirmed that its latest Android flagship handset is affected by a major camera failure, without actually revealing how many Galaxy S5 devices have the flaw. Apparently, after a few days of regular use, the Galaxy S5’s main camera delivers an unexpected message – “Warning: Camera Failed” – and the camera stops working. The issue isn’t fixed after rebooting the device or returning it to factory settings. “We have learned that a limited number of Galaxy S5 devices may have an issue that causes a ‘Camera Failure’ pop-up error message,” Samsung told Re/code. The company further described the issue in a statement to Reuters. “We have discovered that the issue has been seen in a very limited portion

    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    One of the first Windows Phone 8.1 devices due for release after Microsoft’s acquisition of Nokia’s phone business will be focused on the front-facing camera capabilities. Sources familiar with Microsoft’s plans tell The Verge that a Nokia ‘Superman’ device is currently in development with a 5-megapixel camera at the front. Nokia has typically reserved such additions for the rear of its devices, but Superman marks a shift. It’s not clear if Microsoft plans to market Superman as the ultimate selfie-taking phone, but a 5-megapixel camera at the front instead of the standard 1-megapixel offering is no accident.

According to the company's blog, it came down to the increasing price of wholesale data, which made the ad model unsustainable. Fortunately, if you bought a SIM card recently or paid for a data top-up (another option if you didn't want ads), you'll get a refund.

    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    Nokia’s handset business is officially no more, having been absorbed this past Friday by Microsoft as part of a $7.2 billion deal. Nokia’s phones will live on, however, and the burden of selling them will now fall squarely on Microsoft’s shoulders. Nokia had been the only smartphone vendor to really make any progress with Windows Phone, and most of it was with low-end devices in emerging markets. Even with Nokia’s newfound success in recent quarters, however, Windows Phone’s global market share still sits in the low single digits more than three years after the platform first launched. Of course, this is no longer Nokia’s problem. Microsoft is now on its own in its efforts to sell Nokia-built smartphones, and it recently released

In a behind-the-scenes video released online, CBS' Lesley Stahl talks through her experience touring the facility, revealing her surprise at the aging equipment and relatively inexperienced staff. At one point, a staff member shows Stahl a still-used 8-inch floppy disk, highlighting the tech of the '70s that helps power the US' nuclear deterrent.

    Microsoft on Sunday published a new security advisory warning users that a new vulnerability (reference number CVE-2014-1776) has been found to affect all Internet Explorer versions, from Internet Explorer 6 to Internet Explorer 11, although a fix for it isn’t available yet. The security issue has been discovered by security firm FireEye. “The vulnerability may corrupt memory in a way that could allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code in the context of the current user within Internet Explorer,” Microsoft said. “An attacker could host a specially crafted website that is designed to exploit this vulnerability through Internet Explorer and then convince a user to view the website.” However, the flaw only works once a user has been convinced to

  • 46/50   Ancient flying reptile from China fills evolutionary gap
    SCIENCE TOPIC NEWS

    The newly identified Jurassic period creature, a species named Kryptodrakon progenitor that was unearthed in the Gobi desert in northwestern China, was modest in size, with a wingspan of perhaps 4-1/2 feet (1.3 meters). But later members of its branch of the flying reptiles known as pterosaurs were truly colossal, including Quetzalcoatlus, whose wingspan of about 35 feet was roughly the same as that of an F-16 fighter. Roughly 220 million years ago, pterosaurs became the first flying vertebrates to appear on Earth, with birds - first appearing about 150 million years ago - and bats - appearing about 50 million years ago - coming much later. Pterosaurs arose during the Triassic period not long after their cousins, the dinosaurs, also made their debut.

    SCIENCE TOPIC NEWS

    By Sarah McBride NEW YORK (Reuters) - Making mini satellite dishes that collect signals or building remote-controlled mini Rovers such as the kind NASA has used on Mars are the types of activities that could interest kids in science, but their complexity can derail all but the most enthusiastic hobbyist. Now, NASA, the U.S. space agency, hopes it has found a workaround through new space kits and a collaboration with a New York-based startup called LittleBits. NASA, through its Aura mission to study the Earth’s ozone layer and climate, is working with LittleBits to develop activities around a new $189 space kit, announced on Thursday. Using electronic modules such as motors and dimmers that snap together, the creations will perform functions that normally might require hours of tedious tinkering or piles of electronics components.

  • 48/50   Swiss lab 'nano chisels' world's tiniest magazine cover
    SCIENCE TOPIC NEWS

    A laboratory in Switzerland has created the smallest magazine cover in the world, using a tiny chisel to create an image so minute that 2,000 of them could fit on a grain of salt. Scientists carved the 11x14-micrometre image of two pandas that appeared on last month's cover of the National Geographic Kids magazine onto a polymer using technology similar to 3D printing. "My idea was to do something similar to chiselling a rock, but just to do it on a nano-scale," said Urs Duerig, a scientist at IBM in Switzerland and one of the inventors of the machine. "The application range is quite broad," said Felix Holzner, chief executive of SwissLitho, a startup to which the IBM technology has been licensed.
