Commerce Dept. Extends ZTE Sanction Relief Again

ZTE can continue to export U.S. goods for another month due to an extension offered by the U.S. Department of Commerce. The Commerce Department first alleged in March 2016 that ZTE had violated trade sanctions in place against Iran by using shell companies to hide its exporting activities. The government initially banned ZTE from exporting any U.S. goods, parts, or components, but quickly offered a reprieve while ZTE worked with the government to resolve the issue. The initial reprieve gave ZTE until the end of June 2016, but was then extended to the end of August 2016, and then again to Feb 27 of this year. Now the extension runs through March 29. In prior actions, the Department of Commerce extended the relief by 90 days at a time. Reuters suggests the short, 30-day extension indicates a full settlement may be adopted in the near future.

UPS Test Drone Deliveries

UPS Test Drone DeliveriesThings didn’t go all that well for the initial press event but it looks like courier firms are also looking to drones to help with parcel deliveries. This YouTube video shows how UPS are envisaging the process, with the drone able to assist the delivery driver on normal delivery routes.

The drone can take off with one parcel while the van continues on to the next delivery, effectively splitting the one van into two smaller delivery units. It means that deliveries can be sped up and the drone can rendezvous again with the main UPS van further along the route. All of this happens automatically, with only minimal input from the driver..

As you can see in the video, the parcel is mounted to the drone and then it’s sent off via a roof-mouted launch pad. Nice huh?

  • Mobile World Congress / MWC – Why all the fuss?

    For quite a number of years now we’ve been lucky enough to head out to Barcelona. We go armed with ultra-portable gadgets and good running shoes. The event, held in the city since 2006, is basically where all the big mobile companies such as LG, Huawei, Sony and Samsung show off their latest kit. It’s also where we see networks, apps, services, gadgets, accessories, innovations and pretty much anything associated with a mobile phone.

    I’ve been lucky enough to attend for many years now and I’ve seen brands, manufacturers and trends rise and fall. Last year we saw a push towards modular smartphones, VR and lots of wearable tech. This year, who knows?

    Mobile World Congress / MWC   Why all the fuss?

    The event is held in a cluster of huge halls and, when you’ve seen the size of them, it’s a lot like running from one airport terminal to another. They house the biggest companies plus those smaller ones tucked away, way back in Hall 8. This is where you tend to find hidden gems, such as like this flexible screen from last year.

    We’re lucky enough to be heading out earlier this year – on the Saturday – and I’ve got quite a surprise for you later on in the week. I say “surprise” but, if you’ve been round these parts for long enough, you’ll know that we prefer to go “ultra portable” and work on the move. Our HQ is going to follow that same ethos. 🙂

    So do join us from Saturday and all next week. Matteo and I will be hitting you with story after story, so tune in on Twitter and via our YouTube channel for all the very latest video and written content, delivered fresh and in our own unique style. We’ll also hopefully have a live on-site podcast for you to enjoy.

  • Another flying Selfie Shooter – AirSelfie

    Another flying Selfie Shooter   AirSelfie
    Just the other week we had the SELFLY. It was a flying camera which, when it wasn’t in the air, formed a case around your phone. Now, we’ve got a competitor in the form of the AirSelfie.

    It looks to be a smaller and ultra-portable. The people behind it are actually showing it off in their London offices next week, so this isn’t just some CGI thing either. Four powerful propellers lift the unit into the sky and a 5 megapixel video camera shoots footage or takes a photo of you from on high. It’s smaller than a smartphone and can fly up to 66 feet up. You control it with your smartphone via the WiFi hotspot that is generated and it’s powered by a rechargeable battery.

    As before, this lives in a case on your smartphone so you can launch it a and when you need. It’ll then land safely and smoothly onto your open hand, or you can simply grab it while it’s hovering.

    It’s up for pre-order, but do check that your phone has a compatible case for this. It’s perhaps a little expensive for a lot of selfie fans (prices start at €249) but I guess you could perhaps tie your existing smartphone to a balloon to get a cheaper option…

    OK, that was a daft idea..
