  • 1/15   Samsung Elec tips Q2 pickup, smartphone challenge looms
    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    By Se Young Lee SEOUL (Reuters) - Samsung Electronics Co Ltd on Tuesday said it expected stronger earnings in the second quarter as a pickup in sales of high-end televisions and smartphones spurs growth, after it posted its second straight fall in quarterly profit. The South Korean tech giant said the football World Cup in Brazil should help boost sales of screens and smartphones in the current quarter, as fans splurge on up-market devices like ultra high-definition (UHD) TVs to watch the action. A revival of sales of upmarket TVs and smartphones is crucial for Samsung to sustain growth, as its mainstay mobile business, which generated three fourths of its first-quarter profit, reported its first smartphone market share loss in four years. "Their handset shipments guidance suggests there will be low single-digit growth for smartphone shipments for the second quarter, which I think might be below street expectations," said Maybank Kim Eng analyst Warren Lau.

  • 2/15   Bitcoin traders settle class actions over failed Mt Gox exchange
    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    U.S. and Canadian customers of failed Tokyo-based bitcoin exchange Mt. Gox have agreed to settle their proposed class action lawsuits that alleged the company defrauded them of hundreds of millions of dollars. The class action plaintiffs agreed to support a plan by Sunlot Holdings to buy the shuttered exchange and accept their share of bitcoins still held by Mt. Gox, according to a statement and court filings. "BEST OPTION" Once the world's biggest bitcoin exchange, Mt. Gox is slated to be liquidated after the Tokyo District Court granted the company's request to abandon plans to revive its business. In return for settling separate class actions, the U.S. and Canadian customers will share in a 16.5 percent stake after Mt. Gox is sold to Sunlot, a firm backed by child actor-turned entrepreneur Brock Pierce and venture capitalist William Quigley.

  • 4/15   Wall Street remains split on Twitter's prospects
    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    By Gerry Shih and Edwin Chan SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - There was a time when Twitter strove not to end up like Facebook. Now, the one-time Wall Street darling's inability to replicate its bigger cousin's success in mobile and online may be what holds it back. Wall Street remains divided over Twitter as the seven-year-old company prepares to unveil only its second set of quarterly numbers on Tuesday. Eleven of 31 investment analysts polled by Thomson Reuters rate it a "sell," outnumbering the seven who deem it a "buy." The rest have a hold rating or its equivalent.

  • 5/15   LG Electronics Q1 beats estimates; tips stronger TV sales in Q2
    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    LG Electronics Inc beat market expectations by reporting its strongest quarterly profit in nearly two years, after strong sales of its high-end television sets boosted the South Korean manufacturer's bottom line. LG, the world's second-largest TV maker, on Tuesday said sales of large-screen TVs combined with lower material costs to yield high returns in the first quarter, and that it expects TV revenue to increase in the second quarter. The company is battling overall weak TV demand by ramping up production of high-end products such as ultra high-definition (UHD) TVs. For January-March, LG reported a 44 percent on-year rise in operating profit to 504 billion won ($486.89 million) - the highest since the second quarter of 2012 and eclipsing the 279 billion won mean estimate of 37 analysts polled by Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S. Shares of LG Electronics, valued at $11.32 billion, were trading up 3.2 percent after the earnings announcement, versus a 0.3 percent in the wider market , following the stronger-than-expected earnings.

  • 6/15   In cell phone cases, U.S. top court to take up digital privacy
    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    By Lawrence Hurley WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday confronts the question of whether the increasing amount of deeply personal information kept on mobile devices means police officers need a warrant before they can search an arrested suspect's cell phone. The nine justices are weighing cases from California and Massachusetts arising from criminal prosecutions that used evidence obtained without a warrant from a judge. According to a 2013 report by the Pew Research Center, 91 percent of adult Americans have a cell phone, more than a half of them smartphones that can connect to the Internet. Concerns about increasing government encroachment on personal privacy, especially in relation to electronic communications, has surged into the public eye over the last year in light of the disclosures made by former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden about government surveillance.

  • 7/15   Nokia returns $3.1 billion to shareholders, Suri becomes CEO
    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    By Sakari Suoninen and Jussi Rosendahl HELSINKI (Reuters) - Finnish telecommunication gear maker Nokia on Tuesday reported higher-than-expected quarterly earnings and promoted Rajeev Suri, the head of its biggest division, to lead the company following the sale of its once-dominant phone business. The company also announced plans to return $3.1 billion to shareholders via buybacks and extra dividends, a move seen by some analysts as an attempt to retain investors as it refocuses is business. Suri, a 46-year-old Indian national, was widely expected to become the CEO as he helped Nokia's networks business, formerly called NSN, turn profitable with cost-cuts and divestments. The margin is also expected to remain at the higher end of a 5-10 percent target for this year, Nokia added in its earnings statement.

  • 9/15   LG one of the few making money from TVs as profits triple
    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    While LG's earnings and profits are dwarfed Samsung, at least it has some bragging rights this quarter. Unlike its Korean arch-enemy, LG actually made money with its home entertainment and display division, which it chalked up to better sales in large TVs. In fact, the company claims it now sells more big-screen displays than any other, including Samsung, with a 27 percent share of the market worldwide.

  • 10/15   Building a tomb for the Chernobyl disaster
    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    It will cost the United States and "about 30 other nations" an astronomical $1.5 billion to erect the Chernobyl arch. The 32,000 ton structure is meant to seal off what remains of the nuclear reactor that exploded in 1986, thereby allowing for the final stages of cleanup. Over at The New York Times, Henry Fountain writes about history's worst nuclear power plant accident, the construction of the gargantuan arch designed to prevent further atmospheric contamination, and the people connected to the project.

  • 11/15   Video: Here’s one good reason to break open your MacBook Pro or Air
    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    One of the “issues” Retina MacBook Pro and MacBook Air have is the lack of a user-friendly way to upgrade their SSD drives. While buyers may easily purchase an external hard drive or rely on the cloud to have access to more space, Transcend has devised a very easy way to upgrade the internal SSD drive of these Apple laptop models, while turning the built-in drive into a spare, external storage option. The company’s JetDrive SSD upgrade kits have been specifically crafted for the Retina MacBook Pro and MacBook Air notebooks, and they come with up to 960GB of storage (depending on the model), installation tools, instructions and a slick USB 3.0 aluminum enclosure that will house the original SSD drive.

    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    In an age when mobile photography is more popular than it ever has been before, the quality of photos taken on leading mobile devices like the iPhone 5s and Galaxy S5 continues to impress. At the same time, however, there is still a huge disparity between photos taken by smartphones and images captured by dedicated compact cameras. Or is there? Because mobile photography has become so popular, a new category of smartphones has emerged. Made up of just a handful of high-end handsets like the Nokia Lumia 1020 and the Samsung Galaxy S4 zoom, this new breed of camera phones tries to come as close as possible to providing the quality and experience we might expect from a dedicated camera.

  • 14/15   Samsung's Galaxy K zoom is a high-end smartphone and an incredible selfie machine
    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    With cool camera stuff." That's how Samsung's Philip Berne describes the Galaxy K zoom ("K is for camera... if you're German"), the company's latest attempt to figure out how to fully marry an excellent smartphone with an excellent camera. It's a technological achievement, with a retractable 10x zoom lens and 20.7-megapixel sensor crammed into the body of a smartphone. And it makes phone calls — this isn't just a camera that connects to the internet like the Galaxy Camera, Samsung says. Most of Samsung's software enhancements for the Galaxy S5 are present on the K zoom as well, from the Ultra Power Saving Mode to the customized settings menus and S Health.

  • 15/15   Samsung blurs the line between phone and camera (again) with the Galaxy K zoom
    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    Last year, Samsung tried something a little kooky: it made a mash-up of a middling smartphone and a solid point-and-shoot camera (you know, the kind smartphones have nearly driven to extinction). The resulting chimaera was called the Galaxy S4 Zoom, and it was... not great. To absolutely no one's surprise, though, Samsung's fixation on fusion is still going strong and the company's trying to crack the code again with a new camera/phone combo called the Galaxy K zoom.
