ARM has acquired Apical, a U.K. designer of embedded computer vision technology, and plans to incorporate that technology into future ARM microprocessor and system-on-chip designs, it said Wednesday.The move will open up new opportunities for designers of autonomous vehicles and security systems, among other connected things, according to ARM CEO Simon Segars.That technology also turned up in Samsung Electronics' new laptop, the ATIV Book 9.Assertive Camera is another of Apical's developments: It's a range of software packages and silicon-based image signal processors for reducing image noise, managing color and shooting high dynamic range images.ARM makes its money by designing chips that others manufacture, or licensing its chip modules for others to incorporate in their own designs.Putting image analysis and interpretation capabilities in hardware could accelerate and simplify the design of a whole host of products, including self-driving cars and security systems.
Payphone production employs a rapidly increasing number of elements of the Tampere plant, as well as your pile of domestic subcontractors. Tampere Sarankulma ten thousand square meters in the halls has room to grow. The pace brought the company revenues of more than EUR five million last year, and this year it is the swing of EUR twenty million. The most important thing, however, was that the customers were satisfied and bought more. Since then, the same pattern has been repeated many times. Sarankulma Framery built a production line, where the payphone modules are piled up on the preparation of Finnish sub-components.
Google just announced Android will be able to use apps without downloading them.Android Instant Apps takes Google's concept of Accelerated Mobile Pages, which loads webpages near-instantly, to Android apps.Users will no longer need to download an app in order to use its features.The big news is that you won't need to be using the latest version of Android, Android N, in order to use Instant Apps.Google showed off Android Instant Apps on a phone running Android Kit Kat, and the feature will work with devices running all the way back to Jellybean 4.1 Android Instant Apps works by breaking apps up into modules, requiring users only to download the modules they need for a specific feature.The app loads instantly, you tap to pay, and you're on your way.
Android Instant Apps is a game-changer for the mobile Web.Announced at Google I/O today, Instant Apps lets developers take advantage of modules that allow mobile Web users to use an application without actually installing it.The first example showed the user clicking a Buzzfeed Video link to view a recipe and being transported to the appropriate part of the application — all in a span of about two seconds.No app install took place and after a total of three clicks, and about 30 seconds, the demonstrator has purchased a new camera bag.Google expects to roll out Android Instant Apps by the end of the year.Read next: The internet thinks Google Home looks like an air freshener
It means different things to different people, from the purist who considers it to be the kernel, to the GNU advocate who sees it as a part of GNU/Linux and the new user who thinks it is another name for Ubuntu.Strictly speaking, the term Linux used alone refers to the kernel of the operating system, while GNU/Linux is the whole operating system, comprising the Linux kernel and GNU tools – either would be useless without the other or one of its alternatives .An operating system can be defined as the software needed to enable the applications to run on the hardware –as such, it consists of several interleaved layers.Along the way, distros acquired package managers, update tools, configuration GUIs and a host of other niceties.If you are compiling your own kernel, a good rule of thumb is to build in drivers for hardware that is always in use, such as your network interface and hard disk filesystems, and build modules for everything else.There is still some hardware not covered by in-kernel modules, usually because the code is too new or its licence prevents it being included with the kernel yes ZFS, we're looking at you .
Interestingly enough, the Moto G4 is one in a set of three Moto G devices — a lineup that includes the standard Moto G4, the Moto G4 Play, and the Moto G4 Plus.For the purposes of this comparison, we re only going to look at the standard Moto G. But how does the Moto G4 stack up against the lauded 2015 version?This year s Moto G bumps the battery up to 3,000mAh, but with a 1080p display, it will likely last the same amount of time, if not less.It s no secret that smartphones have been getting bigger and bigger, and the 5.5-inch screen on the new Moto G reflects that, given it s 0.5 inches larger than the 5-inch screen on the 2015 Moto G. For those that like to watch videos and play display-intensive games on their smartphone, this will be a welcome change.While the 2015 Moto G had a rather large camera module that extended down to the Motorola logo, this time around, the camera module stays as the camera module, while the logo gets its own little crater.Last year s Moto G offered IPX7 dust and water resistance, meaning that it could be submerged in up to 3 feet of water for as long as 30 minutes.
View shot 2016-05-20 at 1.45.41 pmMOUNTAIN VIEW, CALIF. — If you've been wondering what's going on with Google's effort to create modular smartphones, also known as Project Ara, wonder no more.At the company's I/O developer conference, Google showed the progress it's made in building phones that let users swap individual components like the camera in and out like they're AA batteries.Popping modules in and out is a simple affair, and Camargo showed how a user can snap in a camera module and begin taking photos within seconds.Camargo also addressed the concern that the design of Ara phones might be bulky or unwieldy, saying they can be smaller, larger or the same as current smartphones — it's up to the user.Google makes a solid case for modular phones, and other players, most notably LG, are already following suit with some limited modularity.BONUS: Hands on with Android Wear 2.0
Project Ara built up a ton of momentum over the last couple years, with a public test announced for Puerto Rico last year... and then all of that was scrapped.But now the company has unveiled its revised vision for its modular Android smartphone at I/O 2016, and the results aren't too far off: a Project Ara Developer Edition phone will be available later this year, with a more refined consumer model releasing in 2017.Wired says the Developer Edition phone has a 5.3in display and is a "fairly high-end smartphone."However, what's changed since the earlier models is that the spine of the phone now contains the processor, RAM, and core storage within - that way, you're assured a basic smartphone experience that you can further augment as you see fit.Gone are the chunky dividers between modules, which can now coexist more easily on the back of the phone, and you can attach a module and use it immediately without configuration: Wired's feature mentions a camera module being attached to the phone and a photo taken right away with zero hassle.From the trailer above and the Wired coverage, developers are envisioning modules like a small E Ink back screen, advanced cameras one with 21 megapixels and optical image stabilisation, for example , multiple speakers, a panic button, fitness trackers, kickstands, app shortcut buttons, tiny projectors, and loads of other options.
A new Project Ara developer phone will be available the end of this year, the company announced at Google I/O today, followed by a consumer model later on in 2017.Google teased the kind of things owners will be able to do with an Ara phone, showing off different modules in everyday situations.The phone works using a series of removable modules on the back that have specific functionality — as Google demonstrated in the video below, you could swap in a high-quality microphone module for recording audio, a battery module for spare juice, fitness modules for tracking your activity, and more.These modules now fit together nicely, and they re presented in all sorts of colors, the arrangement of which can be used to create a multi-color phone, and to shake things up whenever you feel like it.The models Google showed off are still visual oddities — you ll definitely catch someone s attention if you pulled this out in public — but there s nothing unattractive about it.Multiple partners are in the pipeline to develop their own modules, and Google teased some interesting ones, such as the presumably low-power e-ink modules the would add a small secondary display to the rear of the handset reducing battery usage .
One of the more outlandish Samsung Galaxy Note 6 rumors is gaining steam, as it looks like the phone might pack an iris scanner.The possibility of eye scanning tech was first brought up in April, when it was discovered that Samsung had been importing "iris camera" modules for research and development, but now a new trademark application suggests that whatever Samsung is using them for could be near spotted that Samsung recently filed to trademark "Samsung Iris" and "Samsung Eyeprint" in the EU and there's really only one thing those terms are likely referring to.Hint: it's not the flower.Might not make the Note 6So we can say quite confidently that Samsung is working on an iris scanner of some kind - alongside plenty of other next-gen tech, presumably - but what's still not clear is which device it's first going to ship with.The Samsung Galaxy Note 6 is a logical choice, as the company is almost certainly going to reserve the tech for a flagship and that's the next flagship we're expecting to see from Samsung.
The first Ara phone will still be customizable, but users won't be able to swap its core componentsA Project Ara phone, with different modules on the back.Google's Project Ara modular smartphone is coming to developers soon, but it's lost a key part of its customization vision along the way.Ara's initial philosophy was to serve as a wholly modular smartphone, which would allow users to customize all of the phone's components, including its processor, battery, network connectivity, and screen.Last year, Google announced that its Project Ara smartphone pilot in Puerto Rico had ended as the company was re-evaluating what it wanted to do with the initiative.It still stays true to the idea of Ara as a heavily customizable phone -- the frame has room for up to six custom modules -- but simplifies the product.Consolidating all of the phone components of an Ara device into the frame reduces its customizability, but provides several benefits, like giving users a slim, integrated phone experience with room for them to add specific functionality they can't get from general-purpose consumer phones.
But Google just made a big promise that developers will be be getting their hands on a device this fall with a consumer version due in 2017.Although Project Ara has been on Google s mind for years now, it s been hampered by hardware delays.After a year, Project Ara didn t have much to show for all its talk of the future, but it certainly inspired the smartphone old guard to run with the idea.But where those attempts are the cozy consumer version of what a modular smartphone can be, Project Ara is the rugged frontier: a patchwork of hardware with a number of different modules that anyone can decide how to mix and match.A Wired exclusive on the reasons why it took Google so damn long was that the half-dozen modular connectors really needed to not suck.Ara chief Richard Woolridge spits out crazy edit-video-while-you-computer-vision use cases, but says the spec boils down to this: It can handle anything.
Project AraInitially a Motorola project that was ultimately unveiled at Google I/O 2014, Project Ara has been an intriguing project that has been on our radar for years now.For those unfamiliar, Project Ara is an ambitious program designed to create an entire hardware ecosystem for smartphone modules.DON T MISS: 10 Marvel movie mysteries that still need solvingSo, for example, if a particular user needed an upgraded camera, they would simply swap out their existing camera module for a more advanced version.And while the first incarnations of Project Ara envisioned users being able to swap out all sorts of components, from a device s RAM to its processor, Google wisely reconsidered and has since limited the number of swappable modules.With Google I/O still ongoing — it is a 3-day event after all — the search giant today announced that it s almost ready to let developers start playing with its long-awaited modular smartphone.In fact, Google said that progress on Project Ara is encouraging enough that they ve decided to spin it out as its own dedicated business unit.
Inno3D's new iChill X3 and X4 cooler designs are claimed to improve performance without adding to the cost of the cards to which they will be attached.'Heat production has been the major drawback for high end graphics cards,' Inno3D product manager Ken Wong hazarded at the announcement.'We have found ways to further optimise and improve our overall top solution under our iChill label, built to bring out the best of Nvidia's consumer products.In the latter case, the cooler features Inno3D's Active Power Cooling System APCS design: the fourth fan is placed on the top edge of the board facing down towards the PCI Express socket, and is used to draw cool air onto dual heatpipes which are attached to a heatsink designed to cool the components surrounding the GPU - including voltage regulator modules VRM and memory chips.Inno3D has also indicated that the cards, to launch under the HerculeZ branding, will include temperature-sensitive LED lighting to the iChill logo on the top: at idle, the logo will glow a cool blue; as the temperature increases, the LEDs will shift colour until they are glowing red to indicate the card is operating near its peak temperature.While Inno3D has indicated that the new coolers will be available without an increase in selling price compared to the competition, the company has not yet announced pricing or availability for the first cards to feature the iChill X3 and X4 designs.
Project Ara, Google s modular smartphone concept, is slowly but surely inching its way closer to becoming a consumer product.On Friday, project lead Rafa Camargo revealed a huge milestone in that developer kits will be shipping later this year.Best yet, a consumer version will be available sometime in 2017.The revelation came as part of an exclusive interview with Wired.In it, we learn that the developer edition shipping later this year will feature a 5.3-inch display and is described as a fairly high-end handset.The Project Ara team decided to handle this aspect of the device with software as it prevents mechanical accidents or failure.
So hats off to LG for trying something different with the LG G5, the first major brand smartphone to feature modular components, meaning you can clip new batteries, cameras and Hi-Fi adjustors to customise the phone further to your own requirements.Granted, you can tap the display awake and tap in your code to unlock it, but I still think the fact you need to be already holding the handset to use the scanner kind of negates the point of having one in the first place.It s powered by a speedy Snapdragon 820 processor, which runs games, multiple-tab web browsing and relatively power-intensive apps without a hitch.The blame for this can be largely lain on powering the screen, though what I would consider quite light web-browsing and music streaming also took a sizable toll.I can't think of a single instance when someone would want to use this feature The standard lens is excellent - pictures are sharp and defined, while colour is true to life The wide-angle lens is great for panoramic landscapes, but pictures tend to be quite dark The camera holds up well in artificial light Credit: rhiannon williams/telegraph A glamorous indoor location captured using the standard lens... ...and with the wide angle lens, standing in the same spot Saturation levels are good in bright light Credit: rhiannon williams/telegraphVerdictWith the LG G5, the South Korean company has made a major step forward from last year s setback and has proved it s not afraid to try something different in a sea of uniformity.In years to come, we may look back on the LG G5 as a landmark model which helped to kickstart the mainstream adoption of modules and the rise of the functional, customisable phone.
It s been a little while since we ve heard much about Project Ara, but Google wasn t going to let an I/O go by without shedding a little more light on the much discussed and formerly Moto-centric modular smartphone platform.Google Engineering Lead Rafa Camargo demoed the system by plugging a camera module in and taking a photo of the audience almost immediately.The system can eject the modules electronically with a simple voice command like, okay Google, eject the camera.The company is starting off with basic modules, including things like speakers and the aforementioned camera, but is already looking into non-standard phone functionality like secondary displays, helped along by an impressive list of co-conspirators, including, Samsung, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment, Panasonic, Toshiba , Harman and E Ink.It s not just a smartphone, Camargo told the audience, but a purely modular computing platform.The developer version of Ara is set to start shipping later this year.
However, it's easy to forget that vendors have been trying to break away from the mould the beige mid-tower format for ages.The Shuttle SZ170R8 cuts a very familiar shape, reminding us of the XPC SX38P2 Pro and the SH55J2 amongst others – it has a similar rectangular shaped chassis with a square-ish fascia.The SZ170R8 can take up to four 3.5-inch hard disk drives up to 40TB with four expansion slots available PCI-e x16, PCI-e x4, M.2 and Mini PCI-e and four memory slots supporting up to 64GB DDR4-2133 RAM modules .What surprised us was how easy it was to access the ports and empty bays.This spec will compete with ease when compared to much bigger desktop counterparts and the 500W power supply unit has the necessary firepower to handle all these components comfortably.Shuttle operates in a niche but lucrative market, one that has seen gaming laptops, like the Dell Inspiron 15 7000, emerge as realistic alternatives for gamers on the move.
