  • Google whiffs on Q1 2014 earnings with EPS of $6.27

    BGR.com - Wed, Apr 16, 2014 4:05 PM EDT

    This past quarter hasn’t been the most eventful one in Google’s history but analysts were still expecting it to be a profitable one with a consensus earnings estimate of $6.40 per share on about $15.5 billion in revenue. The company on Wednesday missed those expectations by posting a first-quarter profit of $6.27 per share on $15.4 billion in sales.  Aside from the big EPS and revenue figures, Google also saw its cost-per-click — a key metric used to determine how much money Google can charge for advertisements — decline by 9% year-over-year. However, Google also points out that its cost-per-click figures have held steady from Q4 2013 and that the year-over-year decline from Q1 2013 to Q1 2014 wasn’t as steep as the year-over-year More »Google whiffs on Q1 2014 earnings with EPS of $6.27

  • Google develops computer vision accurate enough to solve its own CAPTCHAs

    The Verge - Wed, Apr 16, 2014 4:05 PM EDT

    Google has cracked the CAPTCHA. In a paper published this week, Google researchers say that they've developed an algorithm that can accurately solve Google's own CAPTCHA puzzles — those obfuscated jumbles of letters and numbers you type in on websites to prove that you're human — with 99.8 percent accuracy, obviously posing something of a problem to the puzzle's intended purpose of weeding out robots. The new system was developed to help Google automatically analyze hard-to-read signs and house numbers photographed by its Street View cameras, allowing it to accurately match images with locations on a map. Google is, of course, specially suited to developing such advanced automated text analysis because of its extensive work with Street View and reCAPTCHA, its own CAPTCHA service.

  • HTC One (M8) shipments seen reaching 3-5 million in Q2

    BGR.com - Wed, Apr 16, 2014 3:45 PM EDT

    Shipments of HTC’s new flagship One (M8) smartphone are expected to fall between 3 million and 5 million units in the second quarter this year. The phone launched in late March, so Q2 will represent the handset’s first full quarter of sales. This HTC One (M8) sales figure comes from a recent Digitimes report, and it cites the website’s typical unnamed industry sources. Channel sales of between 3 million and 5 million units might not seem terribly impressive compared to the numbers put up by HTC’s top rivals. Samsung, for example, shipped 10 million Galaxy S4 smartphones in just one month last year. Meanwhile, Apple sold 9 million iPhones in one weekend in 2013. But as HTC America president Jason Mackenzie More »HTC One (M8) shipments seen reaching 3-5 million in Q2

  • LG’s so-called ‘Galaxy S5 killer’ could launch in July

    BGR.com - Wed, Apr 16, 2014 3:31 PM EDT

    Releasing a new flagship smartphone has become tricky because you don’t want to release it too closely to new Samsung flagships that launch in the spring or new iPhones that launch in the fall. With this in mind, it looks like LG will be releasing its latest flagship device in July, according to a new report from ZDNet Korea. “An August launch seems too late considering the current market situation,” an unnamed LG executive tells ZDNet Korea. “We’ve completed many features that our competitors don’t have very quickly. (The G3) will go on sale on more carriers than any other LG Electronics’ smartphones.” The G3 looks like it could be one of the big sleeper Android phones released this year.

  • Google doesn’t have ‘any plans to bring Google Fiber to New York’

    BGR.com - Wed, Apr 16, 2014 3:15 PM EDT

    It was too good to be true after all. Speaking with Ars Technica on Wednesday, a Google spokesperson made it clear that there are no plans to bring Google Fiber to the New York area at this time, despite a seemingly surreptitious job listing discovered earlier this week. “Don’t read into the job listing,” said the spokesperson. “We’ve had a full team of folks working on Fiber in the New York office (and other locations around the world) for years. We don’t currently have any plans to bring Google Fiber to New York. We’re entirely focused on building out our networks in Kansas City, Austin, and Provo, and on exploring the possibility of bringing Fiber to the 34 locations we announced in More »Google doesn’t have ‘any plans to bring Google Fiber to New York’

    The Verge - Wed, Apr 16, 2014 3:06 PM EDT

    Denys Zhadanov, the 25-year-old marketing director of Readdle, a Ukrainian app-development company, peers out from behind the wheel of his gleaming white Volkswagen Tiguan, vainly searching for a landmark. We’re lost somewhere off Akademika Filatova street, a long four-lane boulevard cutting through Odessa, a sprawling Black Sea port of a million people in southern Ukraine. Christmas trimmings provide a welcome splash of color: Ukraine celebrates the holiday on January 7th, but a month later many decorations remain, including a giant gorilla in a Santa suit.

  • Does BlackBerry finally know what it’s doing again?

    BGR.com - Wed, Apr 16, 2014 2:56 PM EDT

    It’s way too early to declare BlackBerry on the comeback trail, but Wired nonetheless finds a lot to like in the company’s recent investment in health tech startup NantHealth, a move that the publication calls BlackBerry’s “first good idea in years.” Why is this particular investment such a good idea? As Wired explains, it’s a sign that BlackBerry has really and truly thrown in the towel trying to compete with Apple and Google and is instead focussing on niche markets where its core strengths are actually valued. “After years of lousy calls and stubborn attempts to stay relevant with consumers, the NantHealth investment is a promising sign that BlackBerry is doubling down on niche markets — the one place where More »Does BlackBerry finally know what it’s doing again?
