changing the game: 5g is much more than bandwidth

Being a pessimistic consumer is relatively easy. Until something is in your hands and you can see and feel its tangible benefits, any promises of ‘bigger, better, quicker’ sit firmly in category of the brain marked ‘pipe dreams’. 5G, for instance, reads like a simple, even standard upgrade on 4G, 3G, and the other two that you may not have been around for long enough to remember using: 2G and 1G. However, 5G is set to be the biggest mobile phone generation game changer since 1G was introduced in 1979. To get an idea of how significant 5G could prove to be, telecom experts are going as far as eulogizing its arrival as the spark to ignite the fourth Industrial Revolution. It is more – much more – than a mere…

samsung folding phone is different - but also almost $2,000

Samsung unveiled a highly anticipated smartphone with a foldable screen in an attempt to break the innovation funk that has beset the smartphone market. But it’s far from clear that consumers will embrace a device that retails for almost $2,000, or that it will provide the creative catalyst the smartphone market needs. The Galaxy Fold, announced Wednesday in San Francisco, will sell for $1,980 when it is released April 26. Consumers willing to pay that hefty price will get a device that can unfold like a wallet. It can work like a traditional smartphone with a 4.6 inch screen or morph into something more like a mini-tablet with a 7.3 inch screen. When fully unfolded, the device will be able to simultaneously run three different apps on the screen. The Galaxy Fold will also…

us seeks ways to recycle lithium batteries in cars, phones

The U.S. government will lead an ambitious effort to develop technologies to recycle lithium-ion batteries from electric vehicles, cellphones and other sources to ensure a reliable and affordable supply of metals crucial to battery production in anticipation of soaring global demand and potential shortages, Department of Energy officials said. Calling the effort a national security issue, the agency announced a $15 million, three-year research and development project housed at the Argonne National Laboratory outside of Chicago. The collaboration between Argonne, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, the National Renewable Energy Laboratory and several universities also is an attempt to catch up with China and other countries that manufacture and recycle the vast majority of lithium-ion batteries, including those shipped back from the U.S., officials said. U.S. dependence on other countries for metals such as…

house built by great plains tech students to go up for sale

A special house will be listed for sale in Lawton on March 1. The 1,600-square foot home, from floor to roof, granite-topped kitchen counters to walk-in closet, is the work of building trades students at Great Plains Technology Center and represents about 18 months of classroom work. Just call it on-the-job learning. The house is the eighth built by Great Plains students and was fronted — meaning, money provided to finance construction — by the Great Plains Technology Center Foundation, a volunteer board dedicated to supporting Great Plains and its students. Any surplus revenue realized from the sale of the house will go back into the foundation to support activities such as student scholarships. It’s a worthwhile venture, Glen Boyer, the foundation’s executive director, said to The Lawton Constitution. Boyer said the house is…

switch on: next generation entertainment

With Apple on the cusp of announcing its long-awaited streaming service, we take a closer look at the giant’s plans to revolutionize home entertainment, reveal the shows and movies in the pipeline, and consider reactions from industry rivals Netflix, Disney Plus, and Amazon. ONE MORE THING… Apple’s March event has long been used to show off hardware - just as it did in 2018 with the iPad education presentation . Next month’s event, however, is likely to take a different approach. Don’t worry - Apple is still rumored to show off a whole host of new hardware at the keynote, including the long-awaited AirPods 2, new MacBooks, a refreshed iMac lineup, the iPad mini 5, and perhaps the AirPower, first announced in 2017 . Apple’s ‘one more thing’ announcement, however, could be the…

google’s nest hub has a microphone it forgot to mention

Google said this week it forgot to mention that it included a microphone in its Nest Secure home alarm system, the latest privacy flub by one of the tech industry’s leading collectors of personal information. The company said earlier this month that its voice assistant feature would be available on the system’s Nest Guard, which controls home alarm sensors. But Google hadn’t told consumers about the device’s built-in microphone when it began selling the hubs in the fall of 2017. As recently as January, the product specs for the device made no mention of a microphone. Google said in a statement that the omission was a mistake. “The on-device microphone was never intended to be a secret and should have been listed in the tech specs,” it said. The microphone hasn’t been active since…
