iPhones with curved screens and touchless gestures coming in 2-3 years

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

A new report purportedly coming from “people with knowledge of the matter” says Apple is working on bringing curved screens to its smartphones, a move which may happen in around 2-3 years. These panels will curve inward gradually from top to bottom, and not down at the edges like Samsung’s recent flagships. It’s unclear if Apple sees any additional benefit in ergonomics by going a different direction with its curves, or this is simply a measure meant to preemptively stop people from saying it copied Samsung. Apple iPhone X Although the OLED panel of the iPhone X curves at the…

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

A historic milestone occurred April 3, 1973: the very first call on a mobile phone. It was the phone equivalent of landing on the moon. But that call wasn’t an inspirational message — some equivalent of “a giant leap for mankind.” Nope, Martin Cooper, who headed up Motorola’s team developing the cell phone, called Joel Engel, […]

Valve quietly hides Steam Machine section from its game store after years of neglect

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

Valve has gone ahead and quietly hidden a link to its Steam Machines webpage from the Steam store itself, a move indicative of the ill-fated project to push a console-like transition for gaming PCs in the living room. The move, noticed by PC Gamer today, doesn’t mean Steam Machines can no longer be purchased. You can still find the live link here, and you can even purchase the recommended Alienware Alpha Steam Machine from Dell if so choose, as well as the Valve-designed SteamOS controller over on Amazon. But the “hardware” tab on Steam now only shows the Steam Controller, the HTC Vive headset, and Valve’s game streaming service Steam Link.

It’s clear Steam Machines are no longer a priority for Valve, which couldn’t overcome the product…

Report: Apple’s own chips will replace Intel in MacBooks within 2 years

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

Apple MacBook processors Intel

According to a report from Bloomberg‘s Mark Gurman, Apple is planning on replacing the Intel chips currently used in its Mac computers with Apple-designed processors by 2020. The move would help Mac devices work “more seamlessly” with iPhones and iPads, and could potentially be a major stepping-stone along the path to creating one unified operating system for all Apple devices.

Intel shares dropped more than 9 percent following the Bloomberg report.

According to Bloomberg‘s sources, replacing the Intel processors in Macs is just one part of a broader strategy to make Apple devices work better together:

The initiative, code named Kalamata, is still in the early developmental stages, but comes as part of a larger strategy to make all of Apple’s devices — including Macs, iPhones, and iPads — work more similarly and seamlessly together, said the people, who asked not to be identified discussing private information. The project, which executives have approved, will likely result in a multi-step transition.

The first step in the transition would be replacing the Intel processors in Apple’s laptops with a chip designed in-house. That step could be complete in just two years, and would give Apple much closer control over the processors used in its laptops. Apple works closely with Intel on processor design and features, but taking the process in-house would give Apple more control, and potentially more of an edge over rival laptop companies.

Apple has increasingly been focused on bringing component design in-house, although its efforts have mostly been restricted to mobile devices thus far. It designs the processors that run the iPhone and iPad, as well as a number of custom chips like the M-series motion co-processor. Apple is already rumored to be working on its own modem chips, some of which it already gets from Intel.

Malaysia just made fake news illegal and punishable by up to six years in jail

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

Malaysia passed a new law today that would punish citizens on social media or those working at a digital publication for spreading fake news with a 500,000 ringgit ($ 123,000) fine and a possible a prison sentence of up to six years. Led by Prime Minister Najib Razak, the Anti-Fake News bill passed in parliament today despite opponents who had criticized the bill for possibly impeding free speech and attempting to censor the prime minister’s involvement in a multibillion-dollar scandal.

A draft of the bill had specified a prison sentence of up to 10 years as punishment, but the government toned it down to six in the finalized version, as reported by Reuters. Fake news cases will be handled by an independent court process. Violators could…

Niantic settles class action lawsuit following last year’s disastrous Pokémon Go Fest in Chicago

How Complete Beginners are using an ‘Untapped’ Google Network to create Passive Income ON DEMAND

Last summer, Niantic Labs celebrated the first year of Pokémon GO with an in-person event in Chicago, with others to follow in Europe. It didn’t go well: spotty cell signals and overwhelmed servers turned the event into a disaster, and two dozen attendees launched a class action lawsuit to try and recoup travel expenses. TechCrunch is reporting that Niantic has reached a settlement, to the tune of $ 1.5 million.

The company will end up paying $ 1,575,000 for attendees’ flights, hotel rooms, car rentals, parking fees, milage, and tolls. The company will put up a website by May 25th for individuals affected by the problems, and it will notify users via e-mail.

To qualify for the settlement, users have to have checked into the festival in…
