Huawei seeking trademark for own mobile platform

After Dawn on 13/06/2019 pm30 20:17:00

Huawei has been all over the news recently, thanks to Trump administration blacklisting the company. It is becoming increasingly hard to be competitive for Huawei if the blacklist goes into full effect and U.S. as well as many European ones can't or won't do business with them. There's still ways for Huawei to avoid this, and even Trump's Treasury Secretary has noted that Huawei might be cleared off the blacklist if negotiations go appropriately. However, tech companies are making sure that they'll avoid tariffs as much as possible if Trump and Xi Jinping don't find common ground. For Huawei tariffs are the least of their problems. Things like not having an operating system (Android) or processors for their smartphones is far greater... Read the article

Apple expands to Windows 10 – iCloud available in Microsoft Store

After Dawn on 13/06/2019 pm30 17:56:00

Apple has never really been one to bridge the gap between operating systems, ecosystems, and platforms. The company's stronghold over things like iMessage are essentially keeping people locked into iOS, although arguments could be made its totally escapable. However, there might be some light at the end of the tunnel, as Apple seems to be more willing to expand some of its services to competing platforms. After all, for example, Apple Music is available on Android and iTunes (later replaced with Apple TV after iTunes was effectively killed) was released earlier this year for LG and Samsung TVs Now iCloud is making its way to competing operating systems. Apple and Microsoft have become closer partners, and Apple has released iCloud for... Read the article

Tech companies are moving manufacturing out of China to avoid tariffs

After Dawn on 13/06/2019 pm30 17:36:00

After Hon Hai Precision, better known as Foxconn, assured investors that iPhones could be assembled outside the China if needed, others are following suit. According to Wall Street Journal, Nintendo has started producing their next-generation game console, two of them to be exact. This means the dual successor to highly successful Nintendo Switch is just around the corner. It also means that current trade issues between China and the U.S. might really affect where and how it is manufactured and shipped. Nintendo is reportedly ready for the effects the trade war might have with their products, and has already moved some of the manufacturing out of China. This will allow them to avoid profit killing tariffs. While officially Nintendo hasn't commented on this,... Read the article

Apple is planning on buying Intel's failed modem business?

After Dawn on 12/06/2019 pm30 19:39:00

Apple's rise to the top with the iPhone was nothing short of miraculous, but things haven't necessarily been going as great after Steve Jobs passed, although they are again closing in on that $1 trillion. Market cap was rising until it hit a trillion dollars last year, but since it has hit some big roadblocks. One of them was the failure with 5G. Apple's sole modem partner was Intel, who completely flopped with their 5G modem development. Not only were they late to the party, but they eventually had to pull out entirely. For Apple this meant costly settling and negotiations with their courtroom rival Qualcomm, full price of which has yet to be determined. Worse yet, there is still no word... Read the article

Mozilla updates Firefox logo after major news

After Dawn on 12/06/2019 pm30 18:06:00

Mozilla's Firefox has been in a slow and painful decline ever since Google announced their own web browser, Chrome, approximately 10 years ago. Not only has Firefox's market share been cut in third but the company has become increasingly dependent on search engine partnerships and the royalties they provide. That's why the company has just announced a new premium version of Firefox. A massive move from the company that has provided, and keeps providing, a free to use web browser. While the premium Firefox is only going to hit the testers this fall, the company has already revamped Firefox's image quite a bit. Mozilla has also determined that in the future Firefox will encompass not only the browser but a larger group of... Read the article

Film photography is making a comeback with Fujifilm's new black & white film

After Dawn on 12/06/2019 pm30 15:44:00

Not many of the younger generation of photographers know what developing a photo is like. However, apparently the ones that have learned about it are interested. There's interest enough for Fujifilm to bring back photographic film to the market. The company has started producing a new version of its iconic black-and-white Acros photo film. The new product is called Neopan 100 Acros II. They are producing both a 35 mm as well as 120 film variants of this monochrome technology that we thought had been largely forgotten. This nearly 200 years old method of photography has some new technology inserted in it. According to Fujifilm, a new Super Fine-Σ technique improves the sharpness and produces a more fine graininess compared to... Read the article

Foxconn: Apple won't feel the brunt of the trade war

After Dawn on 12/06/2019 pm30 15:29:00

The best example of the escalation of the trade war between China and the U.S. is of course Trump blacklisting world's number two smartphone manufacturer and top 5G competitor Huawei. However, there is no trade war where there is no retaliation. China has warned that it is willing to blacklist companies in America, and elsewhere, who abide by what Huawei calls unconstitutional ban. Furthermore general trade war actions, like tariffs, could damage other companies as well. One of the main ones in the line of fire is of course Apple, who've had troubles in China. Fortunately Apple's key supplier Hon Hai, better known here as Foxconn, is assuring investors that drastic trade war acts are not going to leave Apple without... Read the article

Mozilla to release a premium version of Firefox

After Dawn on 11/06/2019 pm30 16:33:00

Mozilla CEO Chris Beard has revealed a rather strange development for the web browser developers. The company responsible for the popular Firefox browser is going to be releasing a premium version of the browser. At this point he doesn't reveal what kind of price people are required to pay to access this new piece of Mozilla software, but needless to say it will include some improvements over the free version. In an interview with Germal publication t3n, Beard says that the new version might include things like integrated VPN service as well as free and safe cloud storage, although not all features have yet been decided. He ensures that in no universe is Mozilla going to get rid of the free version, however.... Read the article
