Microsoft launches Windows 10 on ARM

Microsoft launches Windows 10 on ARM

Microsoft and Qualcomm are officially unveiling the first ARM-powered Windows 10 laptops today. As expected, HP, Lenovo, and Asus are the manufacturers creating these new laptops that include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor. The first devices are similar to 2-in-1 tablet / laptops we’ve seen with Intel-based processors in them, but they differ primarily because of the version of Windows 10 and Qualcomm processor that’s powering them. Microsoft has previously shown Photoshop running on an ARM version of Windows 10, and the company has developed a special emulator to run traditional x86 apps on these new devices. These devices look and feel like normal laptops, and will run most of the software you’d expect to see on a laptop. HP and Asus are announcing their devices today, and Lenovo
Obama’s ‘startup visa’

Obama’s ‘startup visa’

A judge has found that the Department of Homeland Security did not have reasonable cause to delay the start of an Obama administration visa program for foreign entrepreneurs. The so-called International Entrepreneur Rule was instituted to keep foreign entrepreneurs in the U.S. by giving them a workaround to existing visas. The Trump administration delayed the program's start in July just days before it was set to begin. Other countries, including France and Canada, offer special visas intended to encourage entrepreneurs to set up businesses there. Those who come to the U.S. and start companies must navigate a complicated web. Existing visas, like the H-1B, aren't intended for entrepreneurs and make it difficult to launch a company. The International Entrepreneur Rule would allow fore

Designer creates Substitute Phone for when you can’t flick off yourself

CHANCES ARE that you're a smartphone addict. It's okay to admit it. Most of us are - absent-mindedly fiddling with our phones and feeling lost without them. If you want to cut down your dependency on your fruit or robot based device, an Austrian designer may have the solution. Klemens Schillinger has created the 'Substitute Phone', a sort of stress ball crossed with an abacus that will relieve the tension of those no-phone situations. In an interview with Dezeen, Schillinger explains that his hope is that the device will help people overcome their addictions, much like swapping a cigarette for a lollipop, Kojak style (though Schillinger claims he was inspired by Umberto Eco, rather than Telly Savalas). "The touchscreen smartphone has made it possible to 'escape' into social media," h

  Satna: In a rare surgery, doctors in Madhya Pradesh's Rewa district recently removed 5 kilogram iron objects - a chain, as many as 263 coins and shaving blades - from the stomach of a man who they said is not in a good frame of mind. The 32-year-old Mohammed Maqsood, who hails from Sohaval in Satna district, was taken to the state-run Sanjay Gandhi Medical College and Hospital in adjoining Rewa on November 18 after he complained of pains in stomach. Dr Priyank Sharma, attached to the Sanjay Gandhi Medical College and Hospital (SGMCH), on Sunday said that they identified the cause behind Maqsood's stomachache after conducting tests and through an X-ray. He said a team of six doctors surgically removed 10-12 shaving blades, four big needles, a chain, 263 coins, besides piece

Apple AR glasses release date

Apple AR glasses release date

Augmented Reality (AR) or Mixed Reality is different than Virtual Reality (VR). Rather than being immersed in a fully-rendered world, AR/MR layers data on top of the real world. Right now, Apple's efforts are focused on ARKit, its platform for hundreds of millions of iPhone and iPad users. But Apple doesn't see AR as a single product, like Microsoft's HoloLens or Snap's Spectacles. Apple sees AR as a core technology that will be part of many products coming in the future. Just like LCD and OLED are part of many products today. And that might just include Apple Glasses. November 21, 2017: Apple reportedly acquires Vrvana and its 'extended reality' headset According to TechCrunch As Apple reportedly ramps up work to ship an augmented reality headset in 2020, it has acquired a startu

OnePlus adds a six-inch screen and face unlock for the 5T

OnePlus adds a six-inch screen and face unlock for the 5T

OnePlus has carved out a nice niche for itself over the past couple of years. The company’s never been too preoccupied with the rush toward bleeding-edge tech. Instead, it’s worked to provide consumers with one of the best deals in smartphones. And the newly announced 5T is firmly inline with that mission statement. The phone hits retail here in the U.S. and Europe on November 21st, bringing with it a 6.01-inch AMOLED display with an 18:9 aspect ratio. The handset ditches the front-facing fingerprint reader (moving it to the rear of the device) to accomplish this. The 5T is also the first OnePlus device to offer up unlocking through facial recognition and Portrait Mode. If all of this sounds familiar, it’s because it’s what all of the cool kids have been doing for a little while already
