  • 2/15   China regulator announces anti-monopoly probe of Microsoft
    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    By Paul Carsten BEIJING (Reuters) - A Chinese regulator said on Tuesday it is conducting an anti-monopoly investigation into Microsoft Corp over its Windows operating system, in the latest in a growing number of competition probes that have unnerved Western firms in China. China's State Administration for Industry & Commerce (SAIC) was also investigating a Microsoft vice president and senior managers, and had made copies of the firm's financial statements and contracts, the agency said on its website. It said Microsoft, which has struggled to make inroads in China due to rampant piracy, had not fully disclosed information about Windows and its Office software suite. Microsoft is one of the biggest U.S. companies to fall under the eye of Chinese regulators as they ramp up their oversight in an apparent attempt to protect local companies and customers.

  • 3/15   Huawei says ships 34 million smartphones in H1 globally, up 62 percent year-on-year
    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    By Yimou Lee HONG KONG (Reuters) - China's Huawei Technologies Co Ltd said smartphone shipments in the first half rose 62 percent year-on-year, as it targets the more expensive smartphone sector dominated by Samsung Electronics Co Ltd and Apple Inc. Shenzhen-based Huawei has shipped 34.27 million smartphones globally in the first six months ending June 30 - about 43 percent of its annual shipment target of 80 million, according to Reuters' calculations based on figures provided by Huawei. "We recorded faster growth in areas such as Middle East and Africa and Latin America, with 275 percent and 550 percent year-on-year growth in the second quarter, respectively," Shao Yang, vice president of marketing in the consumer business group, told Reuters in a written statement. "Based on the growth momentum at the moment, we are firmly moving toward our full-year target," Shao said, adding that smartphones are now accounting for 97 percent of Huawei's global phone shipments.

  • 4/15   Orange's network investments help ward off low-cost rivals in France
    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    By Leila Abboud and Gwénaëlle Barzic PARIS (Reuters) - Telecoms operator Orange's investment in faster fiber and mobile broadband networks in its French home market has started to pay off, as its high-end focus insulates it from cut- price fixed plans offered by rival Bouygues. As France's largest carrier reported second-quarter results in line with forecasts on Tuesday, it said that some 60 percent of new mobile customers were signing up for high-end plans that include 4G and that 50,000 new customers had signed up to its fiber broadband offers, taking the total to 415,000. Orange shares are up about 30 percent so far this year, the biggest gainers among Europe's large-cap telecom firms, as investors bet on its recovery from a French price war touched off by low-cost player Iliad's entry to the mobile market in 2012 as well as possible consolidation. Bouygues took the price battle to the fixed broadband market this March with a TV, Internet and fixed-line phone bundle at 19.99 euros ($26.9) a month, a move that analysts said risked hurting Orange since it has the largest fixed client base.

  • 5/15   Osram to cut almost 8,000 jobs in switch to LED
    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    German lighting maker Osram Licht AG announced late on Tuesday plans for a new savings program that will include almost 8,000 job cuts, or around 23 percent of its staff, as it seeks to keep up with a shift in technology. It said that the extra measures would cost around 450 million euros and could result in it missing its long-term target for a reported operating profit margin of more than 8 percent in the fiscal year to the end of September, 2015. Osram also announced third quarter results a day earlier than planned, with sales of 1.2 billion euros ($1.61 billion) and better than expected adjusted earnings before tax and interest of 104 million euros. "While earnings continue to develop nicely, the growing market acceptance of LED technology is, as already announced, causing a significantly faster decline of the traditional business," said Chief Executive Officer Wolfgang Dehen.

  • 6/15   Always misplacing keys, wallet? Lost and found apps may help

    By Natasha Baker TORONTO (Reuters) - Finding misplaced keys, wallets and purses could get easier with new apps that take the guess work out of trying to remember where they might be. “With all of the technology around us, it’s still crazy to think that we still lose our things,” said Nick Evans, chief executive office of Tile, based in San Mateo, California.

  • 7/15   Former NSA chief makes up to $1 million a month selling cybersecurity services
    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    General Keith Alexander was in charge of the National Security Agency when all hell broke loose and former security contractor Edward Snowden leaked documents showing the organization was spying far beyond the extent to which most people were aware (or comfortable with). As Bloomberg first reported last week, Alexander has spent the last few months since his retirement as NSA head in March giving paid talks on cybersecurity to banks and other large financial institutions. Bloomberg also noted that Alexander has charged up to $1 million a month for his services, and even co-founded his own private security firm, IronNet Cybersecurity, Inc. In a more recent interview with Foreign Policy, Alexander admitted that his firm has developed "unique" technology for detecting and fighting so-called "advanced persistent threats" — cyber attacks that can extend for months or years at a time without being noticed, and are directed against specific targets like big companies or governments. Beyond the somewhat uncomfortable optics created by America's leading spymaster turning his skill-set to the private security sector, there are other problems with Alexander's new job.

  • 8/15   Here’s one more way the PS4 is better than the Xbox One
    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    PlayStation 4 owners who also happen to love watching 3D content should know that Sony has just updated its new console to support 3D Blu-ray playback, the company revealed in a short tweet. “PS4 System Software 1.75 is now ready to download. Get downloading!” the company wrote on its PlayStation Europe account, posting the image above that confirms 3D Blu-ray movies will be now supported on the console. Like Sony, Microsoft is also interested in offering 3D Blu-ray playback support, but that will happen at some point in August, in a following software update for the Xbox One. Thus, PS4 obtained another victory in its battle with Microsoft’s console, albeit a small one, being the first to support 3D Blu-rays. PS4

  • 9/15   Tesla CEO Elon Musk will appear on 'The Simpsons'
    TECHNOLOGY TOPIC NEWS

    Elon Musk seems to end up wildly successful in pretty much any venture that he's undertaking, and it appears that success extends into fictional worlds as well. According to EW, Musk will cameo on The Simpsons in a future episode, where he'll turn up in Springfield and somehow manage to bankrupt Mr. Burns. This won't be the first time that Musk, the CEO of Tesla Motors, has been referenced in the show — an earlier episode used his name as a body spray scent — but this will be the first time that he shows up in person.

    With details emerging about the upcoming new Iron Man series at this year's Comic-Con, Marvel has confirmed what the rest of America already knows: San Francisco is where you go if you're looking to launch an app. In the upcoming comic Superior Iron Man #1, Tony Stark is leaving Stark Tower in Manhattan and moving 3,000 miles to San Francisco to build his Extremis mobile app. Stark is a very, very, very rich man, and a narcissist who could benefit from a locally sourced, organic glass of humility. He'll fit right in.

    Unfortunately, this doesn’t always work — sometimes the sperm cells are just too quick, and things can go terribly wrong. As a result, the sperm would be able to crawl up the body cavity (the use of the word "crawl" is important because these sperm are amoeboid, meaning that they use protrusions of the cell body to push themselves forward, instead of "swimming" with a tail).
