  • Did you know? In the Philippines, people pay more for slower Internet

    Vulcan Post - 3 minutes 33 seconds ago

    Southeast Asia is a very interesting region. It is home to the world’s selfiest cities, most expensive city to live in, and even the most instagrammed building in the world. It is also home to countries with the fastest and slowest Internet connectivity. In a recent study by ASEAN DNA on Internet speed in Southeast Asia, the good news is that every ASEAN country has access to the Internet. The bad news? Internet speed across the region varies significantly from one country to another. From the chart above, Singapore reigns supreme as home to the region’s fastest Internet speeds at a whooping 61 MBPS. This number is even faster than Japan and even the US whom are at 41.7 and 22.3 MBPS respectively. From a Filipino’s perspective, I am used to around 1 to 2 MBPS everyday and the Internet speed in Singapore is significantly higher than what we have here. From the same chart, the Internet speed here seems to lag behind from other ASEAN countries. With the Internet speed averaging at only 3.6 MBPS, it is worse than Laos, Myanmar, and even Thailand – the nation closest to the Philippines in terms of economic growth. There are a lot of ...

  • New Microsoft CEO Nadella impresses Wall Street, stresses challenges

    Reuters - 32 minutes ago

    By Bill Rigby SEATTLE (Reuters) - Microsoft Corp's new chief executive on Thursday won rave reviews for his first public encounter with Wall Street analysts who said he communicated willingness to transform the world's largest software company as it scrambles to catch up in the mobile-computing era. Marking the first time in five years that a Microsoft chief executive joined a quarterly earnings conference call, veteran insider Satya Nadella, who took over the helm on Feb. 4, said his first weeks in the new job were taken up with getting to know the company afresh. He said he is also dealing with the reality of the new tech marketplace in which Microsoft has ceded its market dominance to Apple Inc and Google Inc .

  • Video: Choose sides in this interactive trailer for next-gen game Evolve

    BGR.com - 34 minutes ago

    Evolve is shaping up to be the most captivating cooperative game of the new generation of consoles. Announced earlier this year, Evolve is a successor of sorts to Turtle Rock Studios’ last major project, Left 4 Dead. As in Left 4 Dead, players in Evolve will team up to fight a terrifying threat, but this time the threat is much larger than a zombie. Evolve pits a team of four humans players (Hunters) against a single, gigantic monster (Goliath). In the recently published interactive trailer, you can swap between the perspectives of each player character and the player-controlled Goliath in real-time throughout the course of a full match.

    By Lisa Richwine and Liana B. Baker LOS ANGELES/NEW YORK (Reuters) - Netflix Inc's streaming video subscription service will be integrated into TiVo Inc set-top boxes for customers of three of the smaller U.S. cable operators, the companies said on Thursday. The deals with Atlantic Broadband, Grande Communications and RCN Telecom Services are the first in the United States to bring Netflix as an app to cable set-top boxes. The arrangements make it easier for consumers to access Netflix movies and TV shows on their television sets because they don't have to switch to another device like an Apple TV or Roku box.

  • Apple's sales boom in communist Vietnam

    Reuters - 1 hour 10 minutes ago

    (This story corrects period for sales in the first paragraph) By Nguyen Phuong Linh HANOI (Reuters) - - Communist Vietnam is suddenly Apple Inc's hottest market after sales there tripled in its fiscal first half, a growth rate five times faster than in India where it is spending heavily in a battle for market share. Vietnam has barely received a mention from Apple executives in their regular briefings for financial analysts. Quarterly iPhone sales more than doubled and the strong growth appears likely to continue given Vietnam's predominantly young, tech-savvy population, rapid growth in internet and mobile phone use and a projected doubling of the middle class by 2020.

  • Pinterest focuses on discovery with new Guided Search

    Engadget - 1 hour 14 minutes ago

    With over 750 million boards and 30 billion pins, Pinterest has seen nearly a 50 percent increase in new pins in just the last six months. Indeed, CEO Ben Silbermann even calls it the "world's largest human-curated collection of things." Therein, however, lies a problem. With so much information, it can be difficult to find what you really want, but even worse, it becomes really (really) hard to find or even discover new things that might be of interest to you.

  • California bill to require a 'kill switch' on phones fails in state senate

    The Verge - 1 hour 15 minutes ago

    A California bill that would require anti-theft measures to be included in smartphones, failed to pass today after a vote fell two Senate members short of its minimum. Senate bill 962 — which was introduced in February by Senator Mark Leno, a San Francisco Democrat — asked for any "advanced mobile communications device," sold in the state next year to have hardware or software features to let owners render the devices useless when stolen. The vote comes just a week after nearly every major player in the phone industry pledged to make their smartphones harder to steal. Apple, Google, HTC, Huawei, Motorola, Microsoft, Nokia and Samsung, along with the five major US cell carriers, agreed on plans to offer customers a way to remotely wipe or make inoperable their devices beginning July 2015. Along with the California bill, a separate piece of legislation introduced in Congress in February called the Smartphone Theft Prevention Act, asks for both carriers and device manufacturers to provide options to remotely wipe the phone, or render it useless if stolen.
