  • What Big News Can We Expect from Apple's WWDC this Year?

    Returning to its San Jose roots after being held in San Francisco for the past 14 years, Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) is expected to bring some big announcements, including a possible sneak peek at the iPhone 8, expected to launch later this year.

    Yesterday, Apple announced that its 28th annual WWDC will run June 5-9 at the McEnery Convention Center in San Jose. In addition to a lineup of keynote speakers, the conference will also feature a number of technical sessions, hands-on labs with Apple engineers and “very special experiences around San Jose throughout the week.”

    There’s plenty of reason to expect the iPhone to have a high profile at this year’s WWDC, as 2017 marks the 10th anniversary of the debut of the iconic device. In addition, Apple will likely take the wraps off the latest version of its mobile operating, iOS 11, as well as announce updates to the macOS desktop system, watchOS and tvOS.

    Expect Siri News, ‘Premium’ iPhone Design

    As usual, Apple isn’t providing many details about the WWDC lineup and announcements at this point. However, the company noted that developers will be able to register for tickets, to be offered via random selection, to the event starting on March 27. Those who can’t nab tickets or make it to San Jose will be able to watch the conference via live-streaming.

    With other tech competitors regularly rolling out new digital assistants and bot offerings powered with machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI), Apple is also likely to provide some news about updates to its Siri AI. Unveiled at last year’s WWDC, iOS 10 already added a number of new Siri-powered capabilities. At last year’s event, Apple also launched SiriKit, which opened up the AI to developers who want to create new Siri-integrated apps.

    According to the Apple-focused…

    Samsung Family Succession Hits Snag with Chief's Arrest

    South Korea was taken by surprise Friday with the arrest of the scion of the country’s richest family and de-facto leader at Samsung over his alleged involvement in a massive corruption scandal that engulfed the president and riveted the nation.

    Prosecutors believe Lee Jae-yong, 48, a vice chairman at Samsung Electronics and the only son of the ailing Samsung chairman, gave bribes worth $36 million to President Park Geun-hye and her close friend to help win government support for a smooth company leadership transition, including a contentious merger of two Samsung companies.

    A look at how his arrest affects the electronics giant:

    Little Impact on Phone, TV Businesses

    Some conservative commentators are worried that Lee’s arrest could hurt Samsung’s businesses and therefore the economy, which relies on such companies for exports and jobs.

    But others dismiss such concern as exaggerated. “What would affect its businesses are the Galaxy phone’s success, the performance of the semiconductor sector and how fast Chinese rivals are catching up, not whether Lee Jae-yong is arrested or not,” said Park Sang-in, a professor at Seoul National University.

    Chiefs of companies such as Hyundai Motor Group and SK Group have been jailed before but still ran their companies from behind bars.

    Samsung Electronics, which is the world’s largest maker of mobile phones, TVs and computer memory chips, has three separate chief executive officers each overseeing its electronic component, mobile phone and television divisions.

    But long-term business decisions, such as appointing executives and deciding on mergers and acquisitions, may be put on hold. Samsung normally announces personnel reshuffling and promotions each December, but postponed those announcements in 2016 as it was dragged deeper into the political scandal.

    Lee is not the first in his family to face criminal charges. His father was convicted in 2008 and 2009 for embezzlement and tax evasion related to business dealings designed…

    SAVFY Wireless Bluetooth FM Transmitter – Review

    SAVFY Wireless Bluetooth FM Transmitter   Review
    Get this for $19.99 from Amazon US or just £13.99 from Amazon UK and then stick it into your cigarette lighter / 12V feed. After a simple pairing procedure it’ll hook into your phone via Bluetooth and pump out the music via FM. Then it’s just a matter of tuning in your car radio to the appropriate frequency and off you go. All your MP3s or streaming content banging through your car speakers.

    In addition, this SAVFY Wireless Bluetooth FM Transmitter will acts as a car kit – letting you send and receive calls thanks to an in-built microphone. Up top, and easy-to use dial which controls the frequency, volume, power and input. There’s also a 1.44 inch display for telling you what’s happening and some easy-to-hit buttons either side for switching the input, changing to the FM channel choice or skipping tracks.

    SAVFY Wireless Bluetooth FM Transmitter   Review

    Once you plug it in it does protrude a little, and that’s something to consider if your 12v output is near to the gearstick or handbrake. You can, however, tilt the unit forwards and back a little – good if you want to get a better look at the display and also to perhaps move it into a more comfortable position.

    The unit will, for most people, connect to your device via Bluetooth. This it does rather easily, but you can also connect via a 3.5mm audio port or you can pop a microSD card in and play tunes from that – using the buttons on the top to switch tracks and the knob to adjust the volume output. You can see on the shot below that the 3.5mm audio port is painted yellow so that you can locate it more easily.

    SAVFY Wireless Bluetooth FM Transmitter   Review

    The display can also show the name of songs, the incoming phone number and the voltage input.

    SAVFY Wireless Bluetooth FM Transmitter   Review

    In addition, and what I think is a really bonus, there’s two 2.1A USB ports so that you can charge your phone and something else while your charging. In essence this is a charger for two devices, an FM transmitter and a Bluetooth hands-free car kit.

    Below you’ll see me using the FM transmitter in the car…

    The unit is built well, and the main control knob is nicely done with a smooth “click” as you twist it round. It’s precise and the FM transmission is clear. It’s also a good design, but I did find that there was some FM “bleed” during use. I found that, if I tuned it to broadcast on a blank FM space of 106MHz, I got a poor signal on main radio stations right up the other end of the dial – such as Radio 2 on 88.3MHz. It was as if the unit wasn’t broadcasting just on the frequency I’d selected. I ended up unplugging the unit when it wasn’t in use, just to get around this, as listening to “normal” FM radio stations became tricky. When you’re charging devices or using this as a Bluetooth car kit it’s a bit of a pain in the bum.

    SAVFY Wireless Bluetooth FM Transmitter   Review

    On the display itself you can see that I’m connected to my phone (the Bluetooth name is simply “G5” and I’m broadcasting on 87.5MHz at volume 30. You can use the volume here or the volume on your radio if you wish.

    For the price, and it really is quite cheap at $19.99 from Amazon US or £13.99 from Amazon UK, it’ll play tunes very well from your phone and the audio is clear and loud. The control system is simple and very easy to understand, plus it’ll auto-connect when you get into the car and power it up. I also liked the fact that it had two USB outputs and a clear, easy-to-read screen.

    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…
