T-Mobile, Sprint Merger Appears To Be In Trouble

The merger between T-Mobile and Sprint may not happen after all. Sprint’s parent company, Japanese carrier SoftBank, plans to break off merger talks, according to a new report from Nikkei.

SoftBank may approach T-Mobile’s parent company, German carrier Deutsche Telekom, as early as Tuesday to end the deal, Nikkei said. It added that the two companies had reached a broad pact but haven’t agreed who would control...

Google’s Brass Fixates On Cheeseburger Emoji

Google’s technical achievements are well known : Google Search, Google Maps, the Pixel 2 XL. And yet, it doesn’t seem to know the simple formula for assembling a cheeseburger. The company’s problematic approach to making up everyone’s favorite meaty sandwich was pointed out on Twitter by writer Thomas Baekdal, who noted that in Google’s version of the cheeseburger emoji the cheese sits underneath the patty. Quelle horreur! Fortunately, Google immediately put its...

Is The Olympic Committee Beginning To Take eSports Seriously

Esports’ battle for mainstream acceptability has yet another endorsement, this time from the International Olympic Committee. In a statement following a summit of the IOC, it was announced that esports “could be considered a sporting activity.” According to the IOC, “the players involved prepare and train with an intensity which may be comparable to athletes in traditional sports.” While acceptance comes with certain caveats – esports must not “infringe on...

Is Intel In Trouble

Chip giant Intel always looks on the bright side. Or, to put it another way, it spins the news to pretend things are better than they actually are. The press release to match its third quarter financial results, for example, is a classic of its type. Intel chose to head up its “news” by headlining the release by saying data centres, the internet of things, and memory business “all achieved record revenue”. But, in fact, although third quarter revenues amounted to $16.1 billion, that’s only...

Is Another Mission To Pluto Being Planned

A grassroots movement seeks to build momentum for a second NASA mission to the outer solar system, a generation after a similar effort helped give rise to the first one. That first mission, of course, was New Horizons, which in July 2015 performed the first-ever flyby of Pluto and is currently cruising toward a January 2019 close encounter with a small object known as 2014 MU69. New Horizons got its start with letter-writing campaigns in the late 1980s, and the new project hopes to duplicate that...

Google To Roll Out Fix For Pixel 2 In Coming Weeks

Problems are begging to plague the Pixel 2 XL, Google’s 6-inch marquee phone of the season, but Google says a solution is on its way. First reported in the Pixel user community, there has been evidence of the Pixel 2 XL recording terrible-sounding audio in video recordings. In addition to recordings sounding sharp and tinny overall, background sounds are muddy and warbled. In one extreme case, a user uploaded a recording in which the whole track sounds completely stifled for a few seconds...

Apple Boasts That iPhone X Pre-orders Are ‘Off The Charts’

Apple Inc swatted away concerns of muted demand for its iPhone X on Friday, saying pre-orders for the 10th-anniversary phone were “off the charts”. The company’s shares, which have fallen steadily since it announced in early September it would launch two iPhones within two months, rose nearly 3 percent in response. Pre-orders for the much-anticipated 10th-anniversary phone started from 12.01 am PT (0701 GMT) on Friday.  “We can see from the initial response, customer demand is off the charts,”...

Does Apple’s iOS Have a Loophole

Felix Krause has uncovered a worrying setting in iOS that enables apps with camera permissions to secretly record photos and videos without them knowing.  To demonstrate the issue, the Austrian developer created an app called ‘watch.user’ that can take pictures of its user every second and upload them without notifying them in any way. The iOS feature, which Krause described as a “privacy loophole that can be abused by iOS apps”, also allows developers to run real-time...

Can nVidia Put Fully Autonomous Cars On The Road In Four Years

Nvidia chief executive Jensen Huang said artificial intelligence would enable fully automated cars within four years, but played down a demand for its chips from cryptocurrency miners. Huang told the assorted throngs, riff-raff and great unwashed who attended a company event in Taipei: “It will take no more than four years to have fully autonomous cars on the road. How long it takes for the vast majority of cars on the road to become that, it really just depends.” He said that cars are not the...

Did Life Start With A Cosmic Splash

A new study bolsters the theory that the chemical origins of life on Earth were midwifed by meteorites that delivered essential building blocks from space. Meteorites slamming into warm, small ponds on the planet’s rising land surfaces more than 4 billion years ago could have delivered those building blocks into an environment where they could grow and combine into ribonucleic acid, or RNA, said Ben K.D. Pearce, an astrobiologist at Canada’s McMaster University. The study, produced by...

Twitter Beats Revenue Expectations, Shows Signs Of Momentum

Twitter still has a long way to go. For a second straight quarter, the social network said Thursday its user growth remained essentially flat.

Walmart Piloting Self-scanning Robots In Some Stores

Wal-Mart Stores Inc will debut shelf-scanning robots in approximately 40 stores to replenish inventory faster on its shelves and save store employees time when products run out. The company has been piloting such robots in a handful of stores. “If you are running up and down the aisle, and you want to decide if we are out of Cheerios or not, a human doesn’t do that job very well and they don’t like it,” Chief Technology Officer Jeremy King told Reuters. The robots are about 2 feet in size...

Viacom Eying Mobile As A Way To Gain Younger Viewers

Viacom Inc is experimenting with a new tactic in its multi-front effort to win back younger U.S. viewers ditching expensive cable TV packages: seeking deals directly with mobile phone networks. Media companies and mobile networks are increasingly dependent on each other for content and distribution. AT&T Inc’s pending $85.4 billion purchase of Time Warner Inc, for example, is a means for the No. 2 wireless carrier to own the content that its mobile users want to stream. New York-based Viacom...
