To Ditch Dash Charge Name

We all know very well that OnePlus is undoubtedly one of the brands that holds one of the best fast loading technologies on the market. However, now according to the latest reports, the well-known Chinese smartphone manufacturer, of course, OnePlus to ditch Dash Charge name simply due to trademark issues.

OnePlus is undoubtedly one of the brands that holds one of the best fast loading technologies on the market.

If until now this characteristic had the name “Dash Charge”, problems with the registration of the mark caused the Chinese brand to abandon the denomination.

Although technology has evolved at an accelerated pace in recent years, the truth is that the batteries and the autonomy of smartphones have remained almost unchanged for some years now.

In order to overcome this issue, as it does not yet have a stable technology to replace the current one, brands have chosen to focus on developing ways to charge the battery faster. Thus, even if the autonomy is not higher, a short charge period becomes sufficient for a few more hours of charging.

OnePlus is one of the leading brands in this field, with Dash Charge, one of the most efficient fast loading technologies on the market, managing to charge about two-thirds of the battery in half an hour.

Since being introduced in OnePlus 3, the term and brand Dash Charge has accompanied the new smartphones, giving the name to this mode of fast loading. However, this brand seems to have come to an end with OnePlus removing it from everywhere.

Brand “Dash Charge” comes to an end and should be replaced
During the presentation of the new OnePlus 6, there was a term that was purposely omitted from the features of the smartphone, the Dash Charge.

After trying to register the brand in the United States and Europe, OnePlus saw its idea rejected on the European continent after two brands dispute the use of this brand. Both Bragi, a brand of wireless audio equipment, such as Amazon, for its API Dash Replenishment Service, claimed the use of this brand, leading to the rejection of the registration by the Chinese brand.

Although OnePlus can still use this name to identify its fast loading technology, the Chinese brand has chosen to completely eliminate its use.

To do this, it has already renamed all of its media and changed the name of its charging cables to “Fast Charge”. This change should be temporary, while OnePlus looks for a new name for its technology that can be registered.

Launched Its Own Spotify by Google

According to the latest reports, the tech giant Google has just launched its brand new music application, yes, finally it has launched its own Spotify. Basically, it is a new streaming service for the music videos of the platform, of course, YouTube.

The giant video platform, of course, YouTube has just launched its brand new music application which is known as YouTube Music, a new streaming service for the music videos of the platform, and has renamed its YouTube Red payment platform, which becomes known as YouTube Premium.

YouTube Music is a mobile application that can be “streaming” between the YouTube music catalogue and includes official songs, video clips, live performances and playlists, as explained by the tech giant Google through a statement.

The new application will be launched today in the United States and four other countries, to which will be added to 14 European countries. It will have a free version and a paid version without advertising and downloads for a price of $9.99 per month.


In addition, YouTube has also decided to modify the name of its subscription service and its own content in streaming YouTube Network, which is now called YouTube Premium, and which will integrate the services of the paid part of YouTube Music.

YouTube Premium, which will have a monthly cost of $11.99, will be launched “soon” and will be available in new countries that its predecessor Network had not reached, according to the company.

Music in the video
YouTube has also presented the new tool ‘Music in the video’, which is shown in the videos when accessing the ‘Show more’ tab and that includes information about the artist and the topic even in the videos created by Youtubers, such as Google has explained through its official site.

The function, which is already shown in more than 500 million videos of the platform, aims to “offer greater recognition and exposure” to musical artists, according to the tech giant Google.

It shows data about the song as the artist, the record labels and links to the official channel and the music video of the song.

Through proprietary technology for Content ID creators and alliances with record companies, the giant video platform, of course, YouTube is able to automatically identify both the topics that appear in both video clips and songs added to videos created by the users themselves.

Flagship Mi 8 To Feature An In-Display Fingerprint Sensor

We all know very well that the fingerprint reader under the screen of the Xiaomi Mi 8 could be the main novelty of the next high-end of the Chinese firm if a recent filtered video is true and that shows us this unlocking system.

The fingerprint reader under the screen of the Xiaomi Mi 8 could be the main novelty of the next high-end of the Chinese firm if a recent filtered video is true and that shows us this unlocking system.

There are many rumours concerning the new Xiaomi Mi 8 of the Chinese company, which would come to celebrate the eighth anniversary of the brand, and possibly come with some very remarkable novelty.


Although it is not clear if we have a Xiaomi Mi 7, what seems obvious is that the Chinese company wants to get its own iPhone X in the form of the Mi 8, and that could be characterized by this innovative biometric unlocking system by pressing with your finger on the screen.

This fingerprint reader under the screen is one of the most expensive technologies currently implemented in a mobile phone, although at the beginning of the year the Vivo X20 Plus UD debuted in the market with a feature that, presumably, will be usual to see it in most of the high-end next year.

Beyond this video of the Xiaomi Mi 8, there is not much else, although it does seem that the start screen with the MIUI9 customization layer is visible.

Among the features of the Xiaomi Mi 8 that have been rumoured is a phone with the Snapdragon 845, 8GB of RAM and 256GB storage. We will know soon because the presentation of this device is not far in time.

Open Sourcing Some Software Code

Although not widely known, much of the software that Tesla uses in its cars is based on Linux. However, now according to the latest reports, the car company of Elon Musk, of course, I am talking about Tesla has started open sourcing some of its software after facing criticism.

Although not widely known, much of the software that Tesla uses in its cars is based on Linux. The company makes use of the open-source software that is available and changes it for its hardware and for its needs.

Contrary to what would be expected, it has not contributed to this code and was reluctant to reveal it. This has now changed, with the release of part of the code on GitHub https://github.com/teslamotors, open to all.

In addition to all the hardware that equips Tesla cars, much of their intelligence is built on the software the company has created and maintains. Much of the base of this software is based on open-source platforms that everyone can access.


Tesla shows the code of its applications
As expected in the open-source community, the changed code must be made public, so others can evaluate it and incorporate it into other applications. Tesla, after a long time turned to itself, has now decided to become part of its public code.

It is not, of course, any software code that it uses, but it is already a big opening for this company. To give access to this code, it has put it on GitHub, in two different areas, because it is different software.

What open-source code does Tesla have available?
For now, and in good faith, Tesla has made public part of the code that is used in its Autopilot system, as well as the kernel of the Autopilot boards and the NVIDIA Tegra-based entertainment system used in Model S and Model X.

As expected, this code does not allow these systems to be replicated and built on other cars. It is code that is known to be outdated and is only part of what is required for this system to work.

Although limited and out of date, the availability of this code reveals that Tesla wants to contribute and to know all the bases of the software that equips its cars.

Dead Man's Phone by 3D-Printing his Fingerprint unlock by police

Now no more fight with Apple or any smartphone maker, as federal authorities have discovered a new tool for unlocking phones, as far as your phone is using any biometric sensor…
3D Printing!
Yes, Police in Michigan is considering 3D printing a dead man’s fingers so they could unlock smartphones in investigation crimes using their biometric sensors.


A new report published today from Flash Forward creator Rose Eveleth revealed that the police recently approached professors at the University of Michigan to reproduce a dead man’s fingerprint from a prerecorded scan.
Once reproduced, the 3D print would be used to create a false fingerprint of the dead man, which could then be used to unlock his smartphone using its biometric sensors.
The man was a murder victim, and law enforcement investigators believed that his phone might contain some useful information relevant to the case.
Why Police Can't 3D-Print Themselves? Because...
Since smartphone biometric sensors used to detect someone’s fingerprints today rely on electrical currents that most 3D-printed objects can not conduct, such technique would not normally work and help investigators get into the victim’s phone.
This, in turn, made the police approach professor Anil Jain, who told Fusion that he "coated the 3D printed fingers in a thin layer of metallic particles" so that they could conduct electricity and "the fingerprint scanner can read them," helping the police catch the murderer.
Sounds great... Right?
But that will not always be the case.
When thinking about its implications and consequences in future, this technique could make everyone vulnerable who uses biometric security to protect the privacy of their smartphones.
Since fingerprints are the unique and all time the constant identity of a person, there is a risk of having someone steal a fingerprint using a high-resolution photo and recreating it that way.
Since the investigation is ongoing, much details about the technique are not available.
The best solution, for now, is to disable any biometric sensor enabled on your smartphone, just in case you don't want the police or anyone else to 3D print a replica of your fingers and unlock it with ease. Rather set a secure password to lock your device.
Remember: You can change your passwords if it is stolen, but you cannot change your fingerprints.


Buy Yahoo for $5 Billion — Here's Why a Telecom is so Interested!

Finally, Someone has come forward to buy Yahoo! Guess Who?
The telecommunication giant Verizon.
Yes, Verizon Communications Inc. is reportedly closing in on a deal to acquire Yahoo’s core business for about $5 Billion, according to a report from Bloomberg.



Since the agreement between the companies has not been finalized, it is unclear at this moment that which Yahoo's assets the deal would include.
"In order to preserve the integrity of the process, we're not going to comment on the issue until we've finalized an agreement," a Yahoo spokeswoman said in a statement provided to CNNMoney.
You might be wondering Why Verizon is buying Yahoo! Well, I’ll come to it in the second half of my article, because before discussing this point, let’s first focus on why Yahoo! wants to get acquired.
Why Yahoo Was Up For Sale?
Founded in 1995, Yahoo! was once the brightest star of the Web. But when its rivals including Google, Facebook and even few-years-old companies like Snapchat and WhatsApp have won over users, Yahoo! has not been able to maintain that glory.
Yahoo! CEO Marissa Mayer - formerly a Google executive - has spent billions on acquisitions so far to improve Yahoo's mobile products, expanding its audience by acquiring Tumblr and doubling down on premium media content.
But Mayer struggled to slow the overall ad sales decline of Yahoo! and failed.
Last Monday, the company accepted that its revenue fell 15% in the second quarter, after excluding accounting adjustments, and its operating profit fell 64%.
So, after keeping investors at bay for years, Mayer said Yahoo! would explore strategic alternatives, including selling its core assets.
Verizon has long been considered a suitable buyer for Yahoo’s Internet assets, which the telecom giant wants to combine with AOL - the American global mass media corporation bought by Verizon last year for $4.4 Billion.
Now, the two companies are in one-on-one discussions, and Verizon will reportedly acquire Yahoo! for about $5 Billion.
Here's Why Verizon Wants to Buy Yahoo!
So, why does a mobile telecom provider want to acquire the core editorial business of a failed Internet portal?
The sure short answer is:
Advertising!
With the success in the wireless industry, Verizon has been buying up Internet and ad technology companies, like AOL, to compete in a mobile advertising market dominated by two big players, Google and Facebook.
And for this same reason, it is now buying Yahoo!’s ad and content businesses.
Yahoo! has millions of users, and a collection of websites like Flickr, Tumblr, Yahoo Finance, and Yahoo Sports, including some digital-ad technology like Flurry and BrightRoll.
Since the growth of Verizon’s traditional telecom business has been decreased, companies like Yahoo! and AOL would necessarily help Verizon make money from digital advertising on mobile devices.
The deal would not only give Verizon a powerful collection of content and revenue from ad related to that content but also give the telecom company a considerable amount of user data to provide target advertisements to users by the telecom as well as others.
So, this is the kind of deal Verizon was interested in when it acquired Yahoo!

Allows Crooks to Steal Money From Chip-and-Pin Cards

Forget about security! It turns out that the Chip-and-PIN cards are just as easy to clone as magnetic stripe cards.
It took researchers just a simple chip and pin hack to withdraw up to $50,000 in cash from an ATM in America in under 15 minutes.
We have been told that EMV ( Europay, MasterCard and Visa) chip-equipped cards provides an extra layer of security which makes these cards more secure and harder to clone than the old magnetic stripe cards.
But, it turns out to be just a myth.



A team of security engineers from Rapid7 at Black Hat USA 2016 conference in Las Vegas demonstrated how a small and simple modifications to equipment would be enough for attackers to bypass the Chip-and-PIN protections and enable unauthorized transactions.
The demonstration was part of their presentation titled, "Hacking Next-Gen ATMs: From Capture to Washout," [ PDF ]. The team of researchers was able to show the audience an ATM spitting out hundreds of dollars in cash.
Here's How the Hack Work
The hack requires two processes to be performed.
First, the criminals need to add a small device known as a Shimmer to a point-of-sale (POS) machine (here, ATM's card reader) in order to pull off a man-in-the-middle (MITM) attack against an ATM.
The shimmer sits between the victim's chip and the card reader in the ATM and can record the data on the chip, including PIN, as the ATM reads it. It then transmits this data to the criminals.
The criminals then use a smartphone to download this stolen data and recreate the victim's card in an ATM, instructing it to eject cash constantly.
Tod Beardsley, a security research manager for Rapid7, told the BBC that shimmer is basically a tiny RaspBerry-Pi-powered device that could be installed quickly to the outside of the ATM without access to the internals of the cash machine.
"It's really just a card that is capable of impersonating a chip," Beardsley said. "It's not cloning."
The perpetrators would only be able to replicate each card for a few minutes and use it to fraudulently withdraw money, enabling them to make between up to $50,000, but Beardsley suggests that a network of hacked chip-and-pin machines could create a constant stream of victims.
Researchers have disclosed full details about the issue in Chip-and-PIN ATMs to banks and major ATM manufacturers and said they hope the institutions (currently unnamed) are examining the issue.

World's 1st 'Hack-Proof' Quantum Communication Satellite

China has taken one more step forward towards achieving success in Quantum communication technology.
China has launched the world's first quantum communications satellite into orbit aboard a Long March-2D rocket earlier today in order to test the fundamental laws of quantum mechanics at space.
'Hack-Proof' Communications System
The satellite, dubbed Quantum Science Satellite, is designed to develop a ' Hack-Proof ' communications system in this age of global electronic surveillance and cyber attacks by transmitting uncrackable encryption keys from space to the ground.


The 600-plus-kilogram Quantum Science Satellite, better known as Quantum Experiments at Space Scale (QUESS) satellite, took off from the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center in Gobi Desert at 1:40 AM local time on a 2-year mission on Tuesday.
The QUESS satellite will help China perform unprecedented levels of experiments in quantum communication by sending entangled photons from the satellite to relay stations in China and Europe, which is separated by about 1,200 kilometers (746 miles).
The pioneering experiment is to test if the spooky property of quantum entanglement can work at long distances as well.
The satellite's payloads include:
Quantum key communicator
Quantum entanglement emitter
Quantum entanglement source
Quantum experiment controller
Processor
Laser communicator
The payloads, designed to operate for two years, were developed by the National Space Science Center in Beijing under the Chinese Academy of Sciences.
The QUESS satellite will also test the possibilities of communication via quantum 'teleportation,' using an entangled pair of photons.
If the satellite is able to successfully transmit quantum information securely between two ground stations, it could have huge implications for encryption and cryptography.
China has largely been ambitious to realize the importance of Quantum technology. From past two decades, Quantum technology has been a top strategic focus in the country's 5-year economic development plan.
While the United States invested about $200 Million a year in quantum research, China spent $101 Billion in quantum physics in 2015, up from $1.9 Billion in 2005.
China Invests Billions of Dollars in Quantum Technology
Quantum communication encryption is secure against any kind of interception because information is encoded in a quantum particle in such a way that it will be destroyed as soon as the system detects any intrusion attempts.
For example, when two people share an encrypted quantum message and a third person intercepts it, the message will change in an unpredictable way.
Quantum researchers have recently experimented the use of photons to successfully communicate securely over short distances on earth.
But if successful, the QUESS satellite would vastly expand the range of unhackable communication to long distances as well.
"The newly-launched satellite marks a transition in China's role - from a follower in classic information technology development to one of the leaders guiding future achievements," Pan Jianwei, the scientist who is leading the project, told the official Xinhua news agency.
If successful, the QUESS satellite would be the world's first transcontinental quantum key distribution network of its kind and China hopes to erect a global quantum communications network in 2030.
"If China is going to send more quantum communication satellites into orbit, we can expect a global network of quantum communications to be set up around 2030," Pan added

1.9 Gbps Internet Speed achieved over 4G Mobile Connection

Elisa, one of the biggest Finnish Internet Service Providers (ISP), claims to have achieved a new world record for 4G network with 1.9 gigabit-per-second (Gbps) data download speed using Huawei technology.
Currently, Sweden and the United Kingdom have been crowned as the top countries across the world when it comes to fastest mobile 3G and 4G speeds, but now Finland is also working hard to give them a tough competition.



Elisa set this record-breaking benchmark with the help of technology provided by Chinese telecom giant Huawei that could allow real-world mobile 4G users to download a Blu-ray film in just 40-45 seconds.
4G and 5G Technology: The future of Mobile Networks
In February last year, a team of researchers from the University of Surrey managed to achieve a record-breaking speed of 1 Terabit per second (1Tbps) during a test of 5G wireless data connections, which is over 500 times faster than Elisa's 4G speed.
While, in June last year, the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) decided that 5G compliant Internet providers will have to provide a standard data speed of up to 20Gbps , which is still 10 times faster than Elisa's 4G speed.
But currently, the fastest available mobile 4G broadband subscription provides a speed of up to 300Mbps, while the maximum possible speed on a real-world Elisa's live network is 450Mbps.
"The speeds that the 4G network offers are continuously increasing and, possibly in the next few years, we will even be able to offer mobile data connections of several gigabits per second to our customers," says Sami Komulainen, Vice President at Elisa.
However, Elisa is not the first telecommunication company planning to offer at least 1 Gbps on 4G network within the next " two to three years, " as VodaFone Germany has also prepared to provide 1 Gbps on its 4G network by the end of 2016.
Do You Need Ultra-High Speed Mobile Internet?
You might be thinking that why a mobile user needs an ultra-high speed internet connection?
If higher speeds have the potential for a more connected world with the faster flow of information, then what's wrong in it?
Hyper-fast network speeds will not only be a boon to virtual reality and augmented reality but also will accelerate the mobile video market, facilitating the streaming of larger files, like " high-quality 4K video and beyond. "
Moreover, in today's portable world, mobile customers also make use of their mobile Internet data on their laptops and desktops via tethering feature and higher speeds will improve their Internet experience.

Aegle marmelos or Bael is a middle sized

Aegle marmelos or Bael is a middle sized slender aromatic armed tree native to India.. It has since spread to throughout South-east Asia. It is a gum-bearing tree. The tree is used in several cooking preparations in India. It is also important in religious rituals and has medicinal value. In the Hindu religion, the Tri-foliate leaves typical of the Bael is seen as the 3-pronged Trident (Trisula) that Lord Shiva holds in his right hand. It is also popularly known as Bilva, Bilwa, Bel, or Beli fruit, Bengal quince, stone apple, and wood apple. In the system of Ayurveda this drug finds several and frequent therapeutic uses in different forms and recipes . They are prescribed in a number of diseases such as gastro intestinal diseases, piles, oedema, jaundice, vomiting, obesity, pediatric disorders, gynecological disorders, urinary complaints and as a rejuvenative. Besides the wide medicinal utility the plant and its certain parts (leaves and fruits) are of religious importance since the tree is regarded as one of the sacred trees of Indian heritage.

This Wi-Fi Router Can Read Your Emotion

Are you good at hiding your feelings?
No issues, your Wi-Fi router may soon be able to tell how you feel, even if you have a good poker face.
A team of researchers at MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) have developed a device that can measure human inner emotional states using wireless signals.
Dubbed EQ-Radio, the new device measures heartbeat, and breath to determine whether a person is happy, excited, sad, or angry.



Using EQ-Radio, which emits and captures reflected radio frequency (RF) waves, the team bounced waves off a person’s body to measure subtle changes in breathing patterns and heart rates.
This data was then run through a bunch of algorithms and a machine-learning process programmed to match a person's behavior to how they acted previously, categorizing the person's emotion as one of the four emotional states: Pleasure, Joy, Anger and Sadness.
The impressive part about the technique:
EQ-Radio doesn't require you to wear any sort of monitoring device or on-body sensor.
"The whole thing started by trying to understand how we can extract information about people’s emotions and health in general using something that’s completely passive—does not require people to wear anything on their body or have to express things themselves actively," says Prof. Dina Katabi, who conducted the research along with graduate students Mingmin Zhao and Fadel Adib.
In its test, the team says if their device is trained on each subject separately, it measures emotions with 87 percent accuracy and 72.3 percent accuracy when using a single classifier for all subjects.
EQ Radio uses the same carrier frequency as Wi-Fi, but with about 1,000 times less power, which means the system could be integrated into an existing Wi-Fi router or other devices that transmit and receives wireless signals.
According to the researchers, EQ-Radio, and similar systems may help in some practical situations, like:
movie makers and advertisers could use it to better evaluate people's reactions to their work in real time;
doctors could use it to diagnose mental health conditions like depression or bipolar disorder; and
it could also integrate into smart homes, adjust temperature, lighting, and music automatically to match the user's mood...
...all without the target's knowledge or consent. All it takes is some RF signals mixed with a set of algorithms and a dash of machine learning process.
For more technical details and working of the EQ-Radio device, you can head on to the research paper [ PDF] titled, " Emotion Recognition using Wireless Signals.
