So, Nokia Siemens Networks wasn’t fibbing when it said it would re-focus its efforts on mobile broadband. It’s just announced a ‘six pipe’ radio head upgrade for time division LTE (TD-LTE) base stations that can boost capacity by 80 percent and coverage by 40 percent compared to a traditional three-sector site. Alternatively, the same replacement can be used to reduce a station’s running costs, by allowing it to cover three sectors using a single radio head. As far as we’re concerned, anything that recalls OK Computer is a good thing, but if it speeds up carriers’ shift to LTE then it’s even better. Meanwhile, for those who still want to invest in CDMA, Nokia Siemens is pushing it’s 1X Advanced technology, which also promises big improvements in voice and data capacity as well as energy efficiency. Read on for more technical details in a PR double-shot.
Ready to supersize your favorite RC helicopter and bullseye some perps with an aerial bean bag launcher? The Sheriff’s office in Montgomery County, Texas is, and it’s really freaking out the local news. KPRC Local 2 News feverishly asks if the Sheriff’s new unmanned Shadowhawk helicopter is a safety asset, or a privacy violation — we just think it’s awesome. Built and sold by Vanguard Defense Industries, this wireless whirlybird comes equipped with a remote video camera, an infrared heat-seeking device and an onboard GPS. It’s also capable of carrying weapons, although the Sheriff said that there were no plans to weaponize the UAV. The 50-pound chopper is FAA approved to help track down criminals on the run or assist swat teams in a standoff — a blessing that should keep this police drone from being grounded. Hit the source link below see KPRC‘s local coverage, “Big Brother” freakout and all.
We’re not exactly sure of the cause of this fancy new issue affecting Apple’s super cool iPhone line of cellphones, but apparently you’ve got trouble come 1/1/2011. According to an explosive stream of frustration-filled tweets on the Twitter microblogging service, when the clock strikes midnight, one off alarms will cease to sing out. The issue sounds eerily similar to recent Daylight Savings Time trouble we witnessed back in November, although we saw both repeating alarm and single alarm failures, respectively.
So how can you fix this potentially life-ruining problem? Well until Apple patches its OS — and it’s currently unclear if this is just iOS 4.2.1 or earlier versions as well — you can simply create a recurring alarm at the time you need to be woken up, and then disable it once your dreams are completely ruined. We’re taking a deeper look into the issue and have contacted Apple — if we get more news, you guys will be the first to know. In the meantime, feel free to commiserate in comments, and… happy new year?
