Competition weekend! Win yourself a Huawei P smart

I did like the Huawei P smart. It’s properly cheap but properly good. Go on, read my review right here.

Now, this phone is less than £200 but it’s got Android 8.0, a 5.65″ 1080×2160 pixel 18:9 screen, an octa-core CPU, 3GB of RAM and 32GB storage with a microSD slot for more space.

So £200 is not much money, but you can make it even cheaper than that by winning the one that we’ve got right here. Yes! For free. Nothing at all. Deal huh?

It’s proper easy to enter. You just have to click this link, tell us your name and email, then like us on that Facebook thing. The competition ends in 6 days, so get in there !

While I’m here, I’m going another one of those daft cycling things again this year. A group of us will be cycling from the top of Wales to the bottom, over every blinkin’ mountain on the way.

We’re raising money, as we do each year, for a charity called Edward’s Trust. The charity helped one of the guys through a really dark time – they offer support for parents and carers of babies who are stillborn or children who die early in their life. They also offer counselling and therapy for children with have lost a parent. It’s a small charity that doesn’t get much recognition. Learn a bit more about them on their website.

If you do have a few quid, they would really appreciate it. Anything, whatever you can afford, click the JustGiving page and it’s all done.

Thank you so much. It really means a lot. I promise to keep the lycra photos to a minimum if you donate lots 😊

Qualcomm May Relax Phone Price-Based Licensing Model

Qualcomm is weighing a major change in strategy to ensure that its patent-licensing business continues to earn money. As it functions now, Qualcomm charges device makers a percentage of the total sale price to cover patented technology within. The more the phone costs, the more Qualcomm earns per device. Some believe this practice is unfair, including Apple and the governments of the U.S., China, and Korea. Apple has withheld more than $1 billion in royalty payments from Qualcomm as the two argue over the licensing model. In order to avoid such conflicts in the future, Qualcomm said it may cap the phone price at $400. With this calculation, Qualcomm would take a cut of the sale price up to $400, even for devices that cost far more. iPhones, which sell for close to $1000, would effectively be treated like a $400 device when Qualcomm calculates how much it is owed for licensing. This would lower the amount of money Qualcomm earns in these licensing deals, but could allow it to sidestep disagreements with customers. The information was shared by Qualcomm executives during the company’s recent quarterly earnings call. Qualcomm didn’t say if or when it might actually move forward with this strategy shift.

YouTube Kids to Give Parents More Control

YouTube has updates in store for its YouTube Kids service that will provide parents with more granular control over what their children can find and watch. Beginning immediately, Google’s partners will cull together “collections of trusted channels” that range across topics such as music, sports, and arts and crafts so parents can pick and choose which their children are allowed to watch. This tool is located in the Profile Settings, where parents can toggle access to collections from Sesame Workshop, PBS Kids, and more. Also starting this week, YouTube will give parents more power over the search function. Turning off the search function will limit the YouTube Kids app to only those channels and programs that have been verified by the YouTube Kids team. When search is set to off, it will not include recommendations from the broader selection of the YouTube Kids app. Later this year, parents will be able to take even more direct control over content. A new feature called parent-approved content will let parents “specifically handpick every video and channel” their kids are allowed to watch. This feature will be added in the months ahead. YouTube said the current version of YouTube Kids will remain available to those parents who are comfortable with its design and feature set. YouTube Kids is free to download from the Google Play Store.

Huawei Facing Criminal Investigation for Violating Iran Sanctions

Huawei’s survival in America is facing a new threat: a criminal investigation over whether or not it violated sanctions preventing the sale or export of select goods to Iran. The U.S. Department of Justice is looking into Huawei’s dealings with Iran to see if it broke U.S. law, though it’s unclear how far along the probe is and what specific allegations are being made. The investigation “follows administrative subpoenas on sanctions-related issues from both the Commerce Department and the Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control,” reports the Wall Street Journal. If Huawei is found to have violated U.S. law, it could be hit with severe penalties. The U.S government has already targeted the company this year, suggesting it is a security threat. AT&T and Verizon Wireless backed out of distribution deals with Huawei after being pressured by the U.S. government, and lawmakers have proposed to make it illegal for government employees to use Huawei phones. Huawei, the world’s third-largest maker of phones, did not comment on the new assault. Last year, Huawei rival ZTE settled a similar lawsuit over sanction violations.
