    Tech Media Network (Tom's Guide) - Wed, Apr 16, 2014 1:25 PM EDT

Samsung’s senior vice president of product strategy, Yoon Han-kil, made the announcement during an interview with Reuters. He also said that Samsung is working towards making its existing Gear smartwatches compatible with all Android phones, as opposed to just Samsung devices.

  • BlackBerry's meltdown sparks start-up boom in Canada's Silicon Valley

    Reuters - Wed, Apr 16, 2014 1:24 PM EDT

    By Sayantani Ghosh, Ashutosh Pandey and Euan Rocha (Reuters) - The troubles at BlackBerry Ltd, which fired more than half its staff and lost more than 90 percent of its market value as consumers shunned its smart phones, might have spelled disaster for the company's hometown of Waterloo, Ontario. More than 450 start-ups opened for business in the twin cities of Waterloo and Kitchener last year, more than four times the number begun in 2009, according to Communitech, a local company that advises them. Often, the new companies are being founded by former BlackBerry employees chasing their entrepreneurial ambitions in a community that's Canada's answer to technology hubs in California and elsewhere. "For those who are trying to get a new tech business off the ground, get it funded, and not get lost in the shadow of Silicon Valley, Waterloo can be the best place to get your company on the map," said Sean McCabe, vice-president of engineering at drone manufacturer Aeryon Labs Inc in Waterloo.

  • Not even Tor can keep you safe from Heartbleed

    BGR.com - Wed, Apr 16, 2014 1:18 PM EDT

    So here’s some sort-of good news: Cybercriminals might be just as freaked out about the Heartbleed bug as the rest of us. Trend Micro analyst J.D. Sherry writes that revelations about the gaping hole in the Open SSL, the security protocol used to encrypt web traffic, have caused “shell shock in the Deep Web as many of the hidden services within the TOR (The Onion Router) are impacted as well.” Why is Heartbleed so potentially thorny for people who use Tor? Well consider what makes Tor so popular for criminals in the first place: It keeps your online activity anonymous by routing your traffic through several different servers before sending it through to your computer. However, the anonymity of your communications can become compromised More »Not even Tor can keep you safe from Heartbleed

  • LG will launch golden G3 smartphone with crazy resolution this summer

    The Verge - Wed, Apr 16, 2014 1:05 PM EDT

    When reached for comment, LG declined to discuss its future product plans, though it did confirm an earlier report that its next phone will feature a 2560 x 1440 screen resolution. Indeed they have made their way into the market through devices like the 5.5-inch Oppo 7, but LG's G3 is likely to be the first 1440p phone from the major manufacturers.

  • What Google Glass Can't See

    Huffington Post - Wed, Apr 16, 2014 1:04 PM EDT

    Like its cousins, Google Plus and Google Hangouts, Google Glass seems destined to be disappointing. Perhaps it is best expressed with the words used by 1950s actress Shelley Winters to describe her occasional lover Marlon Brando: "All promise and no delivery." More »What Google Glass Can't See

  • Scientists discover the protein interaction that triggers conception

    The Verge - Wed, Apr 16, 2014 1:00 PM EDT

    Scientists may have discovered the key to mammalian fertilization: the interaction between two proteins, Izumo and Juno, located on the surface of sperm and eggs, respectively. But until now, scientists didn't know what Izumo recognized, or to what it might bind. So researchers at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute in the UK created an artificial version of Izumo that they introduced to the surface of mouse eggs. This experiment allowed the scientists to identify Izumo's binding partner on the egg's surface — a partner they named "Juno," after the Roman goddess of fertility.

  • Microsoft gives Bing users a taste of its Cortana personal assistant

    The Verge - Wed, Apr 16, 2014 12:59 PM EDT

    Microsoft's personal assistant Cortana was designed to make Windows Phone smarter and more helpful, but its features won't be limited to smartphones. Today the company announced that Bing now offers some of the same features that make Windows Phone 8.1 feel more "personal." New cards that appear on Bing's homepage will track news headlines, local weather, flight status, and stock performance based on your preferences. Microsoft says there's "more to come" in the company's continued effort to "help you keep track of things that matter to you." Bing is the underlying technology behind Cortana brains, so it's no surprise to see Microsoft taking advantage of all that it's learned — "through years of machine learning and big data experience doing web search" — to spread that personalization across its services.

  • Teardown reveals what makes Google’s new 3D-sensing Android phone tick

    BGR.com - Wed, Apr 16, 2014 12:51 PM EDT

    Project Tango is a new Google initiative that aims to bring 3D-sensing to mobile devices. The tech could allow people to use devices for mapping areas around an individual, especially indoors, for navigation, gaming and other purposes. Just like Project Ara, the modular phone developed by Google, Project Tango is still in its infancy, with only a handful of developers having been invited to test it out. Even so, it appears iFixit has gotten its hands on the device in order to put it through its usual teardown paces. While Google did not reveal any specs and features for the Project Tango handset, mentioning only its cameras-based 3D-sensing capabilities, iFixit managed to confirm its hardware.

  • Currency probe drives bank demand for Big Brother software

    Reuters - Wed, Apr 16, 2014 12:40 PM EDT

    By Jamie McGeever LONDON (Reuters) - "What's your interest in Bill and Ben in the pick?" While most people wouldn't understand the question, this is common vernacular for London currency traders active in the daily 4 o'clock "fixing" of global reference exchange rates. A basic translation of that particular line of Cockney rhyming slang, originating in London's working class East End, would run something like: "Are you a buyer or a seller of dollar/yen at the daily benchmark rate-setting fix?" The wisecracking, rhyme-based language that can make a "whistle" mean a suit (from "whistle and flute") or a "Barnet" mean hair (from "Barnet Fair") has been used by traders in the City of London for decades. Financial regulators are now trying to translate such exchanges into plain English as they investigate whether dealers have colluded to rig benchmark foreign exchange rates used to price trillions of dollars' worth of deals. Britain's financial watchdog, the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), has 50-60 staff dedicated to the foreign exchange investigation, some of whom are former market participants who are helping to decode the traderspeak.
