Eco-friendly Laser Can Brand Vegetables and Fruits, Making Labels Obsolete

Sweden isn’t really that well-known or popular when it comes to the latest technology. But in the supermarket aisles of Swedish supermarkets, laser marks are replacing printed labels on organic avocados and sweet potatoes. In December of last year, Swedish supermarket chain ICA started experimenting with types of “natural branding.” This is the process of…

AT&T Follows 'Unlimited' Lead Set by Verizon, T-Mobile, Sprint

AT&T today announced its own unlimited family plan meant to compete with the likes of those introduced by Verizon Wireless, T-Mobile, and Sprint earlier this week. Beginning Feb. 17, customers will be able to sign up for a wireless-only AT&T Unlimited Plan that AT&T says will cost $180 for a family of four. The package includes four lines with unlimited data, talk, and text. The first line costs $100 and each additional line costs $40. The four-person plan will start at the cost of $220 per month ($100 + 3x$40). The $180 monthly price reflects a $40 credit for the fourth line, which won’t be applied to the account for several months. Critically, the new AT&T Unlimited Plan does not include tethering or mobile hotspot at all. AT&T says customers who wish to use those features should select is Mobile Share Advantage plan instead. The Unlimited Plan includes its Stream Saver by default, which downgrades video quality to 480p resolution to cut down on data use. Customers can turn Stream Saver off at no additional cost to stream HD video. Further, AT&T may throttle data speeds once customers exceed 22 GB of data usage in a given month. The AT&T Unlimited Plan also allows customers to make unlimited calls from the U.S. to Canada and Mexico, roam at no extra cost in Canada and Mexico, and send unlimited texts to more than 120 other countries. AT&T’s plan costs the same as Verizon’s for four lines at $180 per month, but Verizon permits up to 10 GB of mobile hotspot use. AT&T’s separate unlimited plan for its DirecTV customers remains in place.

Google Assistant “Can I Help You?” – Apparantly Not

For less than 24 hours, the new shiny Google Assistant was available on non-Pixel handsets running Android Nougat or 7.0 in old money. If you don’t know what the new Google Assistant is, well it is the new version of the service we have got used to on Android handset but it was exclusive for the Pixel range in the US.

Google Assistant Can I Help You?   Apparantly Not

Google released an update to Nougat on 13th February which included an alpha version of the new AI assistant but noticeably on devices like Nexus 6P but there was also reported the assistant would work on the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 if you sideloaded it on.

Reports from and Android Police say the alpha application was pretty buggy, so it was unsurprising that Google recalled it immediately.

  • LG at MWC 2017 – Like a G6, Like a G6

    If LG don’t use this song as part of their G6 launch I will be properly upset. The phone will be introduced Mobile World Congress 2017 in Barcelona, Spain on February 26th. It’s not long to wait, but you can at least have a look at their new UX 6.0 in the following preview video…

    LG have today released more information on the upcoming handset, which will have a 5.7″ QHD+ FullVision display. That’s 2,880 x 1,440 pixels, and it’ll have an 18:9 screen aspect ratio to let you run multiple windows on one screen more easily. LG state that this display will also let you create a homescreen collage of your photos, plus you can multi-task by creating a memo on one side of the screen while surfing the web on the other.
    LG at MWC 2017   Like a G6, Like a G6
    The user interface makes the most of the display with an improved camera UX to “maximize the extra real estate provided by the 18:9 format display”. Basically that means that you can shoot images and review them on the other side of the screen. The expanded top and bottom of the screen delivers greater productivity, plus there’s an improved GUI which lets you put two perfectly square working areas side-by-side.

    It’s all about multitasking, but although we’ve seen this split-screen idea on phones previously, it’s the first time that we’ve seen the screen size specifically adapted to deliver a dual-square screen.

    We’ll hopefully be at the launch of the G6 and, with any luck, we’ll be hearing LG play that Far East Movement track 🙂


    Unique 18:9 Screen Aspect Ratio and Complementary UX
    Enables Unparalleled Consumption of Mobile Content

    LONDON, Feb. 16, 2017 — LG Electronics (LG) will feature its new mobile UX 6.0 in its upcoming G6 smartphone specifically customized to maximize the advantages of the device’s expansive FullVision® display. LG G6 will feature a 5.7-inch QHD+ FullVision display (2,880 x 1,440) with an 18:9 screen aspect ratio that almost entirely fills the front of the smartphone. The dimensions of the phone are ergonomically designed to ensure maximum comfort and compatibility with existing and upcoming digital content.

    The phone’s new UX maximizes the benefits of the FullVision display, providing the user with the ultimate convenience and advances, such as:

    · Differentiated experience for viewing content such as video clips and web surfing

    · Improved camera UX that maximizes the extra real estate provided by the 18:9 format display

    · Smartly designed GUI (Graphical User Interface) that enables the opening of two perfectly square windows side by side, delivering a more productive, better multitasking experience

    A Differentiated Experience
    The FullVision display in the LG G6 provides users with a new viewing experience. The large screen features an expanded top and bottom that allows users to view more information when surfing the web, or while reading e-books and provides a more immersive experience when users view videos or play games.

    The LG G6 is expected to kick off an era of premium smartphones with 18:9 screen aspect ratios, which is why such a wide variety of films, apps and games tailored to the 18:9 aspect ratio is sharply rising. The smartphone includes a feature that allows users to view existing 16:9 ratio content easily in 18:9 format.

    Enhanced Camera UX
    The camera UX has been considerably enhanced thanks to the expansive 18:9 screen aspect ratio display in a way that increases the convenience and the fun. The expansive screen enables users to take and review photos simultaneously. LG UX 6.0 provides a Square Camera feature which divides the 18:9 display into two identical perfect squares. With this, users can shoot images in 1:1 format – a popular format on social media apps such as Instagram – and review them in the adjacent window. There is also new shooting mode called Food Mode that delivers high colour quality and saturation ideal for, well, food. Users can create GIF files by combining anywhere from 2 and 100 pictures in a loop.

    Advanced Multi-tasking
    The LG G6 takes advantage of the expansive 18:9 display in many ways. Open a call reception window next to the calendar app or the photo gallery at the same time as the message app. Multiple square photographs can be connected together and viewed as a Collage Wallpaper on the lock screen. Type a memo on one side while surfing the web on the other. Inside the calendar app, turning the G6 horizontally will display the calendar in the left window while a detailed schedule will appear on the right. The combinations are endless.

    “The LG G6 with FullVision was inspired by the philosophy of experts in the movie industry who believe that an 18:9 ratio screen would be the best solution for viewing both old and new cinematic content in the digital age,” said Juno Cho, president of the LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “We’ve not only embraced that philosophy in our newest smartphone but taken it to a whole new level by incorporating the 18:9 format in many other ways. I think users will appreciate the many ways we’ve made the LG G6 more productive.”

    The LG G6 with UX 6.0 will be introduced to audiences worldwide at MWC 2017 in Barcelona, Spain on February 26. Click here for a video preview of the new LG UX 6.0.

  • Yahoo Issues Another Warning in Fallout from Hacking Attacks

    Yahoo is warning users of potentially malicious activity on their accounts between 2015 and 2016, the latest development in the internet company’s investigation of a mega-breach that exposed 1 billion users’ data several years ago.

    Yahoo confirmed Wednesday that it was notifying users that their accounts had potentially been compromised but declined to say how many people were affected.

    In a statement, Yahoo tied some of the potential compromises to what it has described as the “state-sponsored actor” responsible for the theft of private data from more than 1 billion user accounts in 2013 and 2014. The stolen data included email addresses, birth dates and answers to security questions.

    The catastrophic breach raised questions about Yahoo’s security and destabilized the company’s deal to sell its email service, websites and mobile applications to Verizon Communications.

    The malicious activity that was the subject of the user warnings revolved around the use of “forged cookies” — strings of data which are used across the web and can sometimes allow people to access online accounts without re-entering their passwords.

    A warning message sent to Yahoo users Wednesday read: “Based on the ongoing investigation, we believe a forged cookie may have been used in 2015 or 2016 to access your account.” Some users posted the ones they received to Twitter.

    “Within six people in our lab group, at least one other person has gotten this email,” Joshua Plotkin, a biology professor at the University of Pennsylvania, said. “That’s just anecdotal of course, but for two people in a group of six to have gotten it, I imagine it’s a considerable amount.”

    Plotkin said in a telephone interview that he wasn’t concerned because he used his Yahoo email for messages that were “close to spam.” In the message he posted to Twitter , he joked that “hopefully the cookie was forged by a…
