Will WhatsApp Face Competition From Amazon

Just when you thought the messaging app market couldn’t get any more crowded, along come the rumors that Amazon wants a piece of the action. According to AFTV News, Amazon has begun surveying customers about the new messaging service to gauge which features are most important them. Called Anytime, the rumored app will apparently be a one-stop-shop focused on voice and video calls, alongside a photo sharing feature with @mentions, as well as some highly-original real-time filters for photos...

Is Virtual Reality To Expensive For The Masses

The current generation of virtual reality is not dead, but it’s not exactly full of life, either. What once was a pulsating buzz has faded into the background of an industry, not because there are newer, shinier toys to play with, but simply because for all the newness and shine of VR, there has been little evidence that a significant audience exists for the experiences we can deliver at this time. Earlier this week, Oculus instituted a temporary $200 price cut of the Rift, dropping the headset...

Is Google Involved In Shady Research

A watchdog group has accused Google of funding academic research to try to influence public opinion and policymakers. Campaign for Accountability (CfA), a Washington-based non-profit that recently launched the Google Transparency Project, said in a report that the company has thrown money at research papers in the US and Europe that appear to support its business interests, covering topics including antitrust, privacy, net neutrality, patents, and copyright. “Google uses its immense wealth...

Intel Launches ‘Purley’ Xeon To Compete With AMD’s Epyc Processors

Intel has unveiled a new series of ‘Purley’ Xeon server processors based on its new Skylake-SP architecture.  The new Intel Xeon SP (‘Scalable Platform’) CPUs, which feature up to 28 processor cores per socket and six terabytes of system memory, were unveiled in New York on Tuesday, and the firm claims a 1.65 times performance boost, on average, compared to the prior generation Broadwell-based server CPUs.   The launch comes just weeks after AMD unveiled its Epyc line...

Is Intel Worried About AMD’s Epyc Processor

Intel is clearly feeling a little insecure about AMD’s new Epyc Server processor range based on the RyZen technology. Intel’s press office retreated to the company safe and pulled out its favorite pink handbag and emerged swinging. It did a direct comparison between the two, and in one slide, it mentioned that the Epyc processor was ‘inconsistent’, and called it ‘glued together’. Intel noted that it required a lot of optimisations to get it to work effectively, comparing...

Did Astronomers Find More Evidence That Planet 9 Exist

Did Astronomers Find More Evidence That Planet 9 Exist

A new salvo has been fired in the back-and-forth debate about the existence of Planet Nine. In 2014, astronomers Scott Sheppard and Chadwick Trujillo suggested that a giant unseen “perturber” may lurk in the far outer solar system. The duo based this hypothesis on peculiarities in the orbits of the dwarf planet Sedna, the newfound object 2012 VP113 and several other bodies beyond the orbit of Neptune (trans-Neptunian objects, or TNOs). The case grew in January 2016, when astronomers Konstantin...

Former MIT Professor Predicts Telepathy On The Horizon

A former MIT professor and engineering executive at Facebook, Oculus, Intel, and Google claims she is close to making communicating telepathically happen relatively soon. Mary Lou Jepsen quit her job heading up display technology for the Oculus virtual reality arm of Facebook to develop new imaging technologies to help cure diseases. Shortly thereafter she founded Openwater, which is developing a device that puts the capabilities of a huge MRI machine into a lightweight wearable form. Openwater...

Is Video Game Development Going Truly Global?

The international video games industry owes a considerable amount to the efforts of immigrants from countries like Syria. Companies like AdMob – founded by Syrian Entrepreneur Omar Hamoui, and later acquired by Google for $750 million – have helped reshape the conventions of game publishing as we know it. Steve Jobs’ own biological father was a Syrian emigrant to the states. On taking that journey, Abdulfattah ‘John’ Jandali unknowingly set events in motion that would...

Does Uranus Have An Odd Magnetic Field

Does Uranus Have An Odd Magnetic Field

The planet Uranus just keeps getting weirder. The icy gas world that strangely orbits the sun on its side may also have a wonky magnetic field that constantly flickers on and off, new research suggests. Magnetic fields around planets, or magnetospheres, create shields against the bombardment of radiation from the sun known as solar wind. On Earth, for example, the magnetosphere lines up pretty closely with the planet’s axis of rotation, and magnetic field lines emerge from Earth’s north...

Astronomers Shed Light On Star Explosions

New looks at the heart of a supernova remnant are revealing clues about the deaths of massive stars and how these dramatic events affect their host galaxies, two recent studies report. Observations made by the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) in Chile allowed one research team to construct a detailed 3D map of SN 1987A — the remains of a huge star that exploded three decades ago — and another group to spot several molecules previously undetected in the supernova remnant. “When...

Are Russian Hackers Targeting Our Nuclear Sites

US nuclear facilities, their suppliers and manufacturing plants using phishing methods, US authorities have said. Last week the US Department of Homeland Security and the FBI released a joint report into recent attacks, including one on Kansas-based nuclear power station operator Wolf Creek Nuclear Operating Corporation. The report was obtained by the New York Times. The networks of Wolf Creek and other key infrastructure companies were said to have been infiltrated. The attackers appeared to be...

Is Open Source Winning

Is Open Source Winning

Going way back, pretty much all software was effectively open source. That’s because it was the preserve of a small number of scientists and engineers who shared and adapted each other’s code (or punch cards) to suit their particular area of research. Later, when computing left the lab for the business, commercial powerhouses such as IBM, DEC and Hewlett-Packard sought to lock in their IP by making software proprietary and charging a hefty license fee for its use. The precedent was set...

Is Mars Soil Toxic To Microbes

Is Mars Soil Toxic To Microbes

The Martian surface may be even less hospitable to life than scientists had thought. Ultraviolet (UV) radiation streaming from the sun “activates” chlorine compounds in the Red Planet’s soil, turning them into potent microbe-killers, a new study suggests. These compounds, known as perchlorates, seem to be widespread in the Martian dirt; several NASA missions have detected them at a variety of locations. Perchlorates have some characteristics that would appear to boost the Red Planet’s...

Will The EU Fine Canon

Will The EU Fine Canon

EU regulators said they might fine Canon up to 10 percent of annual revenue for jumping the gun in its acquisition of Toshiba Medical unit. The EU Commission said Canon breached rules by using a so-called “warehousing” two-step transaction structure involving an interim buyer to buy the company prior to obtaining relevant approvals. Ten percent of Canon’s annual revenue would be roughly equivalent to $2.9 billion. The $6 billion deal, completed late last year, raised eyebrows at...
