Gogo To Boost In-flight Broadband Speeds With New Technology

In-flight broadband provider Gogo’s 2Ku technology has received approval from the Federal Aviation Administration, paving the way for data speeds up to 70Mbps. The company plans to launch commercial services this year. Clearing this regulatory hurdle was an important step for Gogo. The company has received the final so-called Supplemental Type Certificate from the FAA, which it required in order to launch the next-generation technology. Seven commercial airlines have signed up for either a...

Did Stephen Hawking Solve A Major Black Hole Mystery?

Stephen Hawking may have just solved one of the most vexing mysteries in physics — the “information paradox.” Einstein’s theory of general relativity predicts that the physical information about material gobbled up by a black hole is destroyed, but the laws of quantum mechanics stipulate that information is eternal. Therein lies the paradox. Hawking — working with Malcolm Perry, of the University of Cambridge in England, and Harvard University’s Andrew Stromberg — has...

Appeals Court Rules FTC Has Authority To Regulate Cyber Security

A U.S. appeals court has ruled that the Federal Trade Commission has authority to regulate corporate cyber security, and may pursue a lawsuit accusing hotel operator Wyndham Worldwide Corp of failing to properly safeguard consumers’ information. The 3-0 decision by the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Philadelphia on Monday upheld an April 2014 lower court ruling allowing the case to go forward. The FTC wants to hold Wyndham accountable for three breaches in 2008 and 2009 in which hackers...

Do Large Galaxies Off The Best Chances For Alien Life?

Do Large Galaxies Off The Best Chances For Alien Life?

Galaxies like the Milky Way may not be the best cradles of life in the universe — giant galaxies devoid of newborn stars and at least twice as massive as the Milky Way could host 10,000 times more habitable planets, researchers say. In the past 20 years, astronomers have confirmed the existence of nearly 1,900 planets that orbit stars other than our sun. These findings have led researchers to speculate which moons, planets and stars might be the best at supporting recognizable forms of life. Scientists...

Google Including Tweets In Desktop Search

Google Including Tweets In Desktop Search

An earlier agreement between Google and Twitter that has placed tweets in Google search results on mobile devices since earlier this year has now been expanded to the desktop. Relevant tweets will appear in desktop results for queries performed in English. The search doesn’t need to include the term “twitter” or twitter hashtags — if there are tweets that Google thinks are relevant, it will surface them anyway. Last Friday, for instance, a search for “President Obama” returned recent...

Sony Going After Drone Market With New Aerosense Device

Sony is making a play for a piece of the growing drone market, unveiling newly developed unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) from its just-launched drone venture, Aerosense. In addition to the vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) craft hinted at last month, Aerosense on Monday exhibited a quadcopter that makes use of Sony’s lens-type camera, the QX30. The camera, which resembles a lens for a digital single-lens reflex (DSLR) camera and can link to smartphones, is attached to the belly of the...

Instagram, Pinterest User Growth Soars

Possibly market saturation or because of waning interest, some of the world’s largest social networks are experiencing sluggish growth. Facebook, for instance, is the largest social network in the world, with more than 1 billion active monthly users. But it didn’t garner significant growth among U.S. Internet users in the past three years, according to a new study from the Pew Research Center. Some 72% of online U.S. adults use Facebook today. That is up only 5 points from 67% in...

Gravitational Constant Theory Proven By Pulsar

Gravitational Constant Theory Proven By Pulsar

Through extremely high precision measurements of a pulsar orbiting a white dwarf star, astronomers have found that the gravitational constant, which dictates the force of gravity, is “reassuringly constant” throughout the universe. Just as the speed of light in a vacuum (c) and Planck’s constant (h) well-known universal constants, the gravitational constant (or simply “G“) has been long assumed to be constant everywhere throughout the cosmos. But how can we be sure? In...

Engineers Launch 3D Printed Drone From Warship

A team of engineers from the University of Southampton launched a 3D printed unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) from the bow of a Royal Navy warship to show off how lightweight drones could be used at sea. After being launched from HMS Mersey off the Dorset coast in the south of England, the UAV was flown autonomously on a pre-programmed route for a few before landing on Chesil Beach. Known as the Southampton University Laser Sintered Aircraft (SULSA), the drone weighed 3kg with a wing-span of nearly...

Astronomers Believe Earth Like Planet Has Oceans

A small, rocky planet could host liquid water on its surface, if it also contains a carbon-dioxide atmosphere, researchers say. The planet, which scientists have dubbed Kepler-62f, has a diameter 40 percent larger than that of Earth, and could contain oceans of water if its atmosphere keeps the planet warm. “A high carbon-dioxide atmosphere is a reliable way to put liquid water on this planet,” Aomawa Shields, a scientist at the University of California, Los Angeles, who was involved...

Microsoft’s Edge Browser Not Winning Over Windows 10 Users

Microsoft’s new Edge browser is being used by a small percentage of those running Windows 10 — between one-sixth and one-third — according to data from a pair of analytics vendors. The early returns on Edge not only hint at Microsoft’s failure to get the earliest adopters to rely on the new browser, but also question Mozilla’s contention that Windows 10′s setup will result in defections from its own Firefox, or by association, other non-Microsoft browsers. During...

U.S. Rule Over ICANN Extended

The United States management of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, the coordinator of the Internet’s domain name system, will continue through September next year and perhaps even beyond. The Internet global multi-stakeholder community needs time to complete its work, have the plan reviewed by the U.S. government and then put it into action if approved, the U.S. Department of Commerce said Monday. The U.S. National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) said...
