I cannot believe how many websites I m finding for businesses that do not work properly on mobile devices!Major news organizations, attorneys and even Apple s own website that introduces people to their new 7 Plus iPhone requires a magnifying glass to read the text even on one of the biggest phones in the world with one of the largest display screens.There is also a side scroll bug on the Apple website that prevents the entire top navigation menu from being displayed properly in vertical mode requiring users to flip to horizontal to even see the selections.In other words, your website needs to be responsive.No matter whether a visitor to your website is browsing on a laptop, iPad or a phone it simply needs to work.Scott Web Media specialists can redesign your website so that it is responsive to all devices.

p Update 09/05/2017: People backing-up WhatsApp conversations through iCloud will now benefit from the messages being encrypted by default.WhatsApp has confirmed the backed-up files are encrypted and it is believed the feature was introduced in late 2016 but wasn't spotted until now.WhatsApp has turned on end-to-end encryption across all of its apps, the company has announced.The Facebook-owned app, which has more than one billion monthly active users, has turned on the Signal Protocol, developed by Open Whisper Systems, by default.The open-source private messaging system, which has been supported by Edward Snowden, will protect group chats, attachments, voice notes, and voice calls made across WhatsApp on Android, iPhone, Windows devices and some Nokia and BlackBerry models.The encryption method lets users see content that has been sent but does not allow service providers, such as WhatsApp itself, to access the content of the messages.
unfortunately, it's not the sort of thing that you'll want to carry around with you.It's a small gadget that looks to be roughly the size of an iPhone 6 case.Not much has changed since the announcement back in January.The Pocket-VR viewer has a retail price of $70, which might seem a little pricey, when compared to the Google Cardboard.However, instead of being constructed from a paper material, you're getting a hard plastic shell that you can easily take with you anywhere.You can find the viewer available now in both iPhone 6/6s and Galaxy S7 flavors.
LONDON Reuters – Britain s ARM Holdings, the provider of technology for the iPhone, has bolstered its exposure to the developing market of embedded computer vision with the purchase of Apical for $350 million, it said on Wednesday.Embedded computer vision involves the use of digital processing and algorithms to interpret meaning from images or video – allowing devices to understand their environment through visual means.Cambridge-based ARM said the acquisition of Apical would accelerate its growth into new markets such as connected vehicles, robotics, security systems as well as industrial and retail applications.It said it would also extend ARM s product portfolio in existing markets such as smartphones and cameras.Computer vision is in the early stages of development and the world of devices powered by this exciting technology can only grow from here, said ARM Chief Executive Simon Segars.ARM said Apical s imaging products are used in more than 1.5 billion smartphones and approximately 300 million other consumer and industrial devices.Founded in 2002, Apical employs about 100 people, mainly at a research and development center in Loughborough, central England.Last month, ARM reported better-than-expected first quarter profit.Its shares have, however, fallen 11 percent this year on reports Apple has continued to reduce iPhone production.The stock closed on Tuesday at 928 pence, valuing the business at 13 billion pounds.Reporting by James Davey; Editing by Mark Potter
Photograph: Antti Aimo-Koivisto/AFP/Getty ImagesSoon, you ll be able to buy a Nokia again, 18 months after Microsoft quietly killed the name, seemingly for good.Meanwhile, the manufacturing, distribution and sales arms of Nokia have been bought by iPhone manufacturer Foxconn, which has also agreed to build the new Nokia phone for HMD.The chief executive of HMD global, Arto Nummela, said: We will be completely focused on creating a unified range of Nokia-branded mobile phones and tablets, which we know will resonate with consumers.After the dust settles, HMD will be running the Nokia brand with Foxconn as an exclusive licensee.This agreement will give HMD full operational control of sales, marketing and distribution of Nokia-branded mobile phones and tablets, with exclusive access to the pre-eminent global sales and distribution network to be acquired from Microsoft by FIH, access to FIH s world-leading device manufacturing, supply chain and engineering capabilities, and to its growing suite of proprietary mobile technologies and components.In September 2013, Microsoft announced it would buy Nokia s mobile phone business for €5.4bn £4.2bn .
Even today, it s great fun, testing your reflexes at a constant clip as you try to leap between rooftops, into tight office windows, and over fast-falling alien ships.I vividly recall playing it daily for weeks and weeks, frequently delaying my bedtime as one more game before shut-eye ended up being an hour or more of lost sleep.Due to a back-and-forth legal battle with a notorious trademark troll, the game was pulled from the App Store a couple times and even renamed on multiple occasions.See larger imageSurely one of the all-time great iPhone high-score chasers, Orbital $3 challenges you to keep shooting balls into a tight game board—and once each stops bouncing, it expands until it touches something else.And so it goes, as you carefully shoot more and more balls into the limited space while trying to clear the ones already there, all the while ensuring one doesn t bounce the wrong way and end up below the line.See larger imageOnce upon a time, Words With Friends free seemed like the biggest mobile multiplayer game in the world, as the asynchronous turn-based approach was perfect for on-the-go play and fans often juggled several games at once.
In a bid to win over more Indian developers, Apple on Wednesday announced it would set up by early next year a facility to help developers on best practices and to improve the design, quality and performance of their apps on the iOS platform.Apple estimates that over 1 million people in the city work in the tech sector, with over 40 percent of graduates from local universities specializing in engineering or IT.Apple s CEO Tim Cook is on his first visit to India, which he has identified as a growth market for the company, where he expects disproportionate growth versus the more developed areas.Developers usually try out a concept first on Android before offering an iOS version of the app, as it is easier to validate the concept with the large amount of feedback you get from Android users, he added.But iOS is also attractive for developers because users of the iPhone tend to have higher purchasing power and are more likely to retain apps they download, in contrast to Android users who frequently delete apps to save on memory on their phones, Mathew said.The company will also give developers access to tools which will help them create innovative apps for customers around the world, and provide support on Apple s Swift programming language.

The phablet will be in the form of the Xperia XA Ultra, a mid-range device with one big headline feature.Overall, the way the device looks – apart from being larger – is the same.Despite being a big 6ins device, the battery is rather small.It's a 2,700mAh cell which Sony claims will give you two days of battery life.To put it into perspective, the iSight camera used on the iPhone 6S – the device's main camera – is a 12 megapixel sensor, likewise the new though highly optimised camera hardware found on the Samsung Galaxy S7.No prices have been revealed yet and neither have the markets the XA Ultra will be available in.

Get concessions from Prime Minister Narendra Modi's governmentApple has applied to the Indian government for permission to import refurbished iPhones so that it can offer lower-priced phones to the Indian user.The company's phones are considered too expensive by India's price-sensitive users, even though the iPhone is a well-regarded brand and a status symbol in the country.More than two-thirds of the smartphones shipped in the first quarter were assembled within the country, with over 25 vendors making phones locally, according to IDC.Help increase smartphone penetration in IndiaGrowth in China is slowing, with research firm Canalys reporting that smartphone shipments grew by only 2 percent year-on-year in the first quarter.The Indian smartphone market will never grow to the size of China's because of the population's low average per-capita income, high taxes and the appreciation of the U.S. dollar against the Indian rupee, Kiranjeet Kaur, research manager at IDC Asia-Pacific, said in an interview recently.Also, unlike in the U.S. and some other markets where the majority of phones are sold through carriers, in India carriers focus on services rather than offering phones, thus putting demands on Apple to quickly roll out its distribution channels to markets outside the main cities.
When it launches this summer, Allo will offer an incognito mode that switches on an end-to-end encryption system known as Signal, designed by the privacy-focused non-profit Open Whisper Systems.And in the wake of Apple s landmark fight with the FBI over the encrypted iPhone of San Bernadino killer Syed Rizwan Farook, the move represents another step in Silicon Valley s shift toward user-controlled encryption in defiance of law enforcement.Allo s incognito mode represents a far more limited approach to encryption than Whatsapp s, Apple s, Viber s, or even what it s offering with Duo: Unlike with those apps, you must purposefully turn on incognito mode to send encrypted Allo messages; the app doesn t hide all messages by default.But Google s launching its encrypted communication apps as new tools that may or may not catch on, rather than Whatsapp s far bolder move to turn on encryption for its existing, massive userbase.Gmail and Google Hangouts, meanwhile, still lack end-to-end encryption, leaving them open to government surveillance orders.Allo and Duo s new security features, in other words, are Google s baby steps towards a fully-encrypted future, not the sort of bold moves to elevate privacy above profit or politics that some of its competitors have already taken.

In previous years, the only time you really get to hear about a smartphone's camera performance was in a review, sponsored or otherwise, days or weeks after the device goes to market.But with mobile photography taking on a more central role in smartphones today, you just can't get those reviews soon enough.DxOMark regarded the smartphone as having good HDR results when the feature is activated, thought at times inconsistent.Exposure is actually decent when indoors with low-light though there is some visible luminance noise.Of course, it performed best in bright light, where it exhibited better stabilization and noise reduction.But, then again, the smartphone is a mid-range device, so it will perform less spectacularly in other aspects.
