We doubt recent earnings reports at Dell have been met with balloons on the quad and sheet cake in the cafe. And that’s likely the case this time around as well. The PC maker reported revenue of $ 14.07 billion, but earnings of just 21 cents per share — a bit shy of estimates. The company’s stock price is hovering around the $ 13.65 mark, the amount shareholders have been promised once the firm goes private later this year. As you might imagine, Dell’s books won’t be open to public scrutiny once that transaction closes, making this one of the very last earnings reports. Things may not be looking so good for Q1 2014, but will the company end its public streak on a high note? We’ll find out soon enough.
While there have been white space test runs in the UK, these were private trials that weren’t going to get the ball rolling without government help. Thankfully, local regulator Ofcom is of a like mind. It now plans a trial for data on the in-between frequencies this fall, with full-fledged service going live as soon as 2014. The agency expects to settle on the final locations for the pilot after it chooses partners. No, Ofcom can’t guarantee that all the stars will align for rural broadband or other long-range wireless projects — but its involvement at least means those stars are within reach.
The Thirty Meter Telescope has been under development for more than a decade, but the sheer amount of land needed on Hawaii’s Mauna Kea for its namesake main mirror has proved problematic: locals have formally challenged the multi-university effort over concerns that it might damage both the environment and natives’ heritage. Regardless of which stance you take on the issue, the project is going forward now that the state’s Board of Land and Natural Resources has granted an official land permit. The move clears an optical and near-infrared telescope with nine times the coverage area of its peers, and three times the sharpness. That’s enough to observe light from 13 billion years ago as well as put a heavy focus on tracking extrasolar planets, including planets in the making. Any impact on science or Mauna Kea will have to wait when construction doesn’t even start until April 2014, although we’re hoping that environmental care requirements attached to the permit will let us appreciate both the early universe and modern-day Earth in equal measure.

Mercedes has revealed its first electric vehicle for the US here at the New York International Auto Show: the B-Class Electric Drive. The German company has added a 28-kWh lithium ion battery pack to its standard fuel-powered (and slightly bulbous) B-Class compact, and it has seen fit to update the interior styling fairly extensively for the occasion. Mercedes says that the battery will offer 115 miles of range on a charge, and that it can charge up to a 60 mile range in less than two hours and up to full capacity in four hours using a 240-volt power connection (no information is available yet on how long it will take on a regular wall socket). The battery pack is placed underneath the floor of the car — rather than the trunk like some…

After the decision to provide Windows Phone 7.8 to existing Windows Phone 7 users, instead of a full Windows Phone 8 upgrade, Microsoft is now unveiling the support dates for its latest mobile operating systems. The company has previously shied away from support timelines for Windows Phone, only mentioning a brief promise of 18 months at the first unveiling of Windows Phone 8, but recent lifecycle updates confirm support dates until 2014. Windows Phone 8 will be supported, with security and other updates, until July 8th, while Windows Phone 7.8 will continue to be supported until September 9th.
An 18-month support plan, but what about upgrades?
The dates mean both operating systems will be supported for 18 months after they originally…

A pure LTE world is still a long, long way off. But some countries and carriers could get there quicker than others, and indeed Verizon has revealed that it’s considering launching LTE-only handsets, with no CDMA chip, within the next couple of years. Speaking to analysts at a recent Deutsche Bank event, the carrier’s CFO, Fran Shammo, said his company’s goal is to establish voice over LTE by the end of this year and then to “start to think” about pure LTE handsets in “late 2014″. Shammo mentioned this possibility in the context of bringing out cheaper phones, and a general incentive for any carrier to leave 3G behind would be to avoid paying associated licensing fees to the likes of Qualcomm or Broadcom. If those savings eventually trickled down to us customers, and if we could breath the clean air of the countryside without LTE dropping, then it’d certainly be an enticing prospect.

The Japanese government strategies to begin the world’s first 4K TELEVISION broadcasts in July of next year, according to a report in the Asahi Shimbun. If real, this would mean that we’ll be seeing Ultra HD TV a great deal earlier than anticipated– the government had actually previously set a target of 2016 for 4K programs, though the publicly-owned NHK just recently announced that it will check 8K content that year. The 4K transmissions will reportedly begin utilizing CS (communication satellites) prior to transferring to BS (broadcast satellites) and terrestrial digital at a later date.
The faster rollout is meant to feed need for 4K TVs, many of which are manufactured by Japanese business such as Toshiba, Sharp, and Sony. For the rest of us, the move could be a promising …

Sure, 3D printing is fun and cute. And products like the Makerbot and Form 1 will most certainly disrupt manufacturing, even if it’s only on a small scale. But the possibilities of 3D printing stretch far beyond DIY at-home projects. In fact, it could entirely replace the construction industry.
We’ve already seen folks at MIT’s Research Labs working on ways to 3D print the frame of a home in a day, as opposed to the month it would take a construction crew to do the same. But it isn’t just geeks taking an interest; a Dutch architect is interested in 3D printing a home, with the hopes that it’ll be ready by 2014.
The architect’s name is Janjaap Ruijssenaars of Universe Architecture, and his project is a part of the Europan competition, which lets architects in over 15 different countries build projects over the course of two years.
Ruijssenaars will work with Italian inventor Enrico Dini, founder of the D-Shape 3D printer. The plan is to print out 6×9 chunks of frame, comprised of sand and inorganic binder. From there, they’ll fill the frame with fiber-reinforced concrete.
The final product will be a single flowing design, a two-story building.
Here’s the project in Ruijssenaars’ words:
One surface folded in an endless möbius band. Floors transform into ceilings, inside into outside. Production with innovative 3D printing techniques. Architecture of continuity with an endless array of applicability.
As I said, he doesn’t plan on realizing the dream until 2014. So just because he has plans to build the world’s first 3D-printed building, it would appear that others have time to nab the title first.

Wearable connected devices are having a moment — largely anticipatory — as excitement constructs about the capacity for sensor-packed mobile kit that you strap to your individual and usage to augment/record activity from your day-to-day life. Yesterday Google revealed the first hackathons for its Job Glass brilliant specs to get designers thinking about developing apps for a new kind of mobile gadget, while a smorgasbord of wearable health and fitness tracking gizmos such as smart watches and bracelets continue to appear and bring in attention (and occasionally a great deal of cash) on crowdfunding websites.
Rumours of huge name tech business entering wearables likewise remain to do the rounds, sustained by patent filings such as this Apple Project Glass-style patent declaring. And this from Microsoft. Apple has also been rumored to be constructing an iWatch. The marketplace for wise mobile wearables is nascent and for that reason unproven (one example: Pebble ’ s brilliant watch brought in close to 70,000 backers and even more than $ 10 million in funding on Kickstarter) but there does not look to be a scarcity of business — big and small — prepared to check the waters. Expert Juniper has had a look at the mobile wearable gadgets market — parcelling up various kinds of devices consisting of wise glasses, health and wellness wearables and venture wearables (such as scanners and tracking
devices that are made use of for business logistics and in factories) — to made its best guess regarding exactly how the marketplace will ramp up over the next five years. In a new report the expert predicts the marketplace will expand from 15 million clever wearable device sales in 2013 to virtually 70 million in 2017. (For a little perspective, the number of smartphones in usage globally surpassed one billion in Q3 alone last year, according to Strategy Analytics). While Juniper reckons the international market for brilliant wearables will be worth even more than $ 1.5 billion by 2014, up from $ 800 million this year. Juniper ’ s wearables prophecy factors in a substantial ramping up to completion of the projection duration, based on ” significant adoption … driven by the launch of increased reality glasses and comparable items from Google, Microsoft and Apple ”. “ Google Glass will be offered to the consumer just by late 2013 and with players like Apple & Microsoft declaring wearable gadget patents, we anticipate Apple to introduce comparable products in the medium-longer term, ” states Juniper expert Nitin Bhas. That ’ s rather a huge presumption at this point so — as with all analyst projections — don ’ t take these figures as gospel. Juniper concedes there ’ s a fair amount of uncertainty going on at this early stage. ” There are, naturally, fundamental challenges in forecasting a market which is early in its life-cycle, ” Bhas states. ” While Juniper Research has actually questioned crucial users on their expectations of the marketplace for both their own projects and the marketplace as a whole, we believe that only when a number of commercial roll-outs are underway can adoption rates be ascertained
with a high degree of certainty. ” Caveats aside, the analyst is predicting that health and fitness and sports wearables will dominate the wearables market, followed by health care devices – taking a consolidated market share of more than 80 per cent in the last forecast year 2017, with the retail worth of healthcare devices somewhat larger than fitness and sports owing to greater retail price points. Juniper also anticipates customer adoption of brilliant glasses to enhance by 2017 as retail price decreases. The advancement of an app-ecosystem for wearable devices will be important to drive adoption by building a platform around the innovation, it includes. In terms
of geographical markets, North America and Western Europe will control worldwide wearables – representing more than 60 per cent of gadget sales, according to Juniper. Bhas adds: “ Juniper Research’s very own research, corroborated by conversation with market players, suggests that adoption will be highest in the U.S., but the expectancy is that usage will infect chosen European and Asian markets throughout the 5 years for which roll outs are forecast in the report. ”

There are some things in life you can count on every year– like having to declare taxes. For mobile reporters this includes a yearly pilgrimage to CES, MWC, plus the spring and fall editions of CTIA. This year is no exception, with CTIA spring occurring May 21-23rd in Las Vegas and the autumn program (re-baptized MobileCon in 2012) occurring October 9-11th in San Jose. But things are going to be different next year– the Wireless Association revealed today that it will be merging the spring and fall versions in 2014 and forming a single CTIA “very mobile program.” Thinking about how peaceful CTIA and MobileCon were last year, this seems like an excellent possibility for both customer and enterprise-centric merchants to mingle and bring some exhilaration back to the show. CTIA 2014 is scheduled for September 9-11th in Las Vegas and we’ll exist, naturally. Full PR after the break.
