Arrest of Samsung’s Lee may not affect smartphone business in short term

The arrest of Samsung Electronics’ vice chairman Lee Jae-yong on Friday in South Korea may not have a direct impact on the company’s high-profile electronics business, including its smartphones unit, according to analysts.
Samsung announced in 2012 the promotion of the executive, also known as Jay. Y. Lee, to his current formal position at Samsung Electronics. But he is largely seen as the de-facto leader of the Samsung Group, running the business on behalf of his ailing father, Samsung Chairman Lee Kun-Hee.
He was arrested on charges of bribery as part of an alleged corruption scandal that led to the impeachment of South Korea’s President Park Geun-hye.

Wireless power transmission safely charges devices anywhere within a room

A new method developed by Disney Research for wirelessly transmitting power throughout a room enables users to charge electronic devices as seamlessly as they now connect to WiFi hotspots, eliminating the need for electrical cords or charging cradles.


The researchers demonstrated their method, called quasistatic cavity resonance (QSCR), inside a specially built 16-by-16-foot room at their lab. They safely generated near-field standing magnetic waves that filled the interior of the room, making it possible to power several cellphones, fans and lights simultaneously.



Google wants to use Chrome to suck you into virtual reality

Google says it's now time to marry two computing realms: the web and virtual reality.
Its latest version of the Chrome browser includes a technology called WebVR, which lets programmers create websites that present the computer-generated 3D worlds of virtual reality. If you're into VR, you might appreciate the promise WebVR holds for expanding what you can do with a device like a Google Daydream View or a Facebook Oculus Rift VR headset.

That's because, in principle at least, WebVR makes it easier for developers to create a single VR experience that'll work across many VR headsets instead of having to create a separate version for each device. It's an extension of how a single website can span your laptop, Android phone or iPad tablet.


Google Play listing shows how you'll pay on Android Wear

Google is hoping the release of Android Wear 2.0 will push more people toward smartwatches, and one of the key pillars of that strategy is Android Pay. 
Ahead of the launch, it has (perhaps accidentally) released some screenshots on the Play Store that show how it'll work and look. At supported retailers with an Android Pay or contactless logo, you simply hold your NFC-equipped Android Wear watch next to the terminal until it's approved. It'll then detail the latest transaction in a list, and you can scroll to see your recent history.

In other words, you'll get the ability to pay like a boss from your wrist instead of digging around for your phone, a feature Apple Watch and Samsung Gear S3 Watch users have had for a while now. However, there's a catch -- your smartwatch must have an NFC chip, and no current models do, so current owners are out of luck. Thanks to a leak, however, we know that LG and Google are set to release two models, the LG Watch Spor…

Lenovo's latest Android tablet is really a budget laptop

The Yoga A12 could be better than an entry-level PC in the right circumstances.


The tablet market is increasingly skewing toward laptop replacements, but what if you want a replacement for a low-cost laptop? Lenovo thinks it has the answer. It's introducing the Yoga A12, a 12.2-inch tablet that's really a budget convertible laptop for the Android crowd. 

Think of it as a lower-priced but larger alternative to the Yoga Book. You won't find the earlier model's pen input or Windows 10 option, but you'll still get a very portable design (it's 0.21 inches thick at its slimmest point) that can fold into a slate when you're watching Netflix, or a laptop when you need to get work done. The trick, as with the Yoga Book, is a flat touch-sensitive keyboard that eliminates some of the usual physical bulk. We found the Book's keyboard hard to get used to, but it might be easier on the A12's larger, more comfortable surface

The A12 still has an Atom x5 chip powering…

iOS cracking tools reportedly used by FBI released to public

Last year, the FBI ordered Apple to help crack the iPhone 5c owned by Syed Farook, one of the shooters in the 2015 attacks in San Bernardino. Apple refused, and the FBI reportedly worked with Cellebrite, an Israeli firm that specializes in mobile security. According to a statement from Celelbrite last month, a hacker breached one of its legacy servers. Now the hacker has released some of that data as a warning to the FBI. The data released includes code that seems to relate to Cellebrite's Universal Forensic Extraction Device (UFED), and can allegedly crack older iPhones like the 5c as well as Android and Blackberry devices. Speaking anonymously to Motherboardthe hacker explained that simply creating these tools makes their release inevitable, where they can be used by anyone with technical knowledge, including oppressive regimes around the world. "It's important to demonstrate that when you create these tools, they will make it out. History should make that clear,"…

The Galaxy S7 Edge may have just made me a Samsung convert

Historically, I’ve had a begrudging respect for Samsung flagships. I can objectively acknowledge the company makes very good, extremely popular phones, but I’ve never felt that the Korean manufacturer got everything right in a Galaxy S device. I’m not the easiest person to please, admittedly, but I’m finding myself irresistibly drawn to the Galaxy S7 Edge like never before. Don’t miss: all the biggest highlights of MWC 2016 With every previous Galaxy S phone I’ve always found a few too many decisions I didn’t like, missing features I desperately wanted or gimmicky add-ons I saw no use in. Despite the way the world fawned over the Galaxy S6 Edge, even it didn’t tickle my fancy because I thought it was largely unnecessary. The edge was new but it had no real purpose. If anything, I thought the S6 was the better option. The S6 Edge felt awkward with that sharp edge on the back, had a largely useless edge display, had dropped three popular Samsung features found in the Galaxy S5 – microSD…

Android Apps win downloads, iOS apps win money

Google there are a growing number of users, Apple continues to grow sales

of the established narrative with mobile technology is that Google's Android dominates in terms of the sheer number of users and devices, but Apple iOS collects the lion's share of the profits. Nothing changed on this situation in the year 2015, after app Annie's annual report, with the trends are actually always more exaggerated. Android its flight path of amazing growth and reaches approximately twice the app downloads of the nemesis plateaued iOS, seems to have in the last few years.


The Google App Annie explains expansion as driven by the emerging countries such as India, Mexico and Turkey, which is always more access to cheaper and more powerful Android handsets. The Google games store has also shown strong in the United States says the app analytics company. Apple is still very much in the lead when it comes to the economically important metric of App revenue. In 2015, 75 percent of iOS collec…
