BlackBerry announced pop music star Alicia Keys as its new Global Creative Director to great fanfare during its launch of BlackBerry 10 late last month, but if a tweet posted by Keys today is any indication, she may not be being that faithful to the new platform. The superstar was caught tweeting “Started from the bottom now were here!” from the Twitter for iPhone app this morning, despite her promise to The New York Times that she was exclusive to BlackBerry 10 now. The original tweet has since been deleted, and Keys has followed up with not an apology, but rather a claim that she was hacked and didn’t post the tweet in question. It’s hard to say for sure whether or not Keys is telling the truth and someone with her password decided to…

Fisker Automotive is certainly no complete stranger to hold ups, and it ends up they have actually had an additional: production of the firm’s Karma hybrid has actually been halted since its sole battery supplier, A123 Systems, submitted for bankruptcy in October. Since A123 decreased its battery output after the claim, the automaker has been too short on batteries to continue churning out autos. Fisker anticipates returning to production after the ill-fated clothing is auctioned off, but it doesn’t expect to know the result of the sale until mid-December. If your Karma’s lithium-ion pack goes kaput in the meantime, there’s still hope. As of now, the business says it has enough batteries in stock for customers who require replacements.

Ever found yourself stuck at the lights persuaded that whatever is controlling these things is simply trying to test your determination, and that you could do a much better job? Well, appears you may– at least partially– be right. Research workers at the University of Southampton have simply revealed that they are exploring using synthetic intelligence-based traffic lights, with the hope that it could possibly be utilized in next-generation roadway signals. The research utilizes video presentation games and simulations to asses different traffic control systems, and apparently us people do a quite good job. The group at Southampton hope that they will be to follow this human-like strategy with new “equipment learning” software application. With automobiles currently being tested out with WiFi, mobile connectivity and GPS on board for incident avoidance, a system such as this can definitely have a ton of data to tap into. There’s no indication about when we might see a real globe trial, however at the very least we’re helped remind, for once, that as a race we’re not quite able to be replaced by robotic overlords completely.

This is just hilarious. Remember when Verizon Wireless stated rather unequivocally that its Galaxy Nexus suffered from a “signal strength issue” and that a fix was coming? Worry not, dear readers, because the company now claims that it’s identified the issue: apparently, there’s really no problem at all. According to Big Red, the Galaxy Nexus doesn’t suffer from poor reception, but simply reports it reception poorly. To resolve these ‘perception’ issues, the carrier states that it will deliver a software update that “will adjust the signal strength indicator to more closely match other Verizon Wireless devices.” So, whether or not there really is a problem with the Galaxy Nexus (LTE), one thing is for certain — very soon, its owners will have more bars to look at. Huzzah, indeed?
When companies go through a rough patch, it’s pretty rare to see the big man upstairs step up in an awesome way. Take RIM for example. In the middle of security troubles in India and amidst tough competition from Apple and others — right before a major product, the BlackBerry PlayBook was launched — co-CEO Mike Lazaridis shut down a BBC interview not only making himself look overly defensive, but making the company look frazzled. Today Nintendo’s president took a different route.
After the company’s disappointing quarterly results yesterday (and first-ever quarterly loss), Satoru Iwata told shareholders that he takes the blame, reports DigitalTrends. As a result, he’s cutting his paycheck in half. A good deal of Nintendo’s quarterly losses can be attributed to the 3DS, which hasn’t been selling as well as the Japanese company had hoped. Nintendo slashed its expected net profit from 1.4 billion to 258 million — a massive downgrade.
Obviously, half of Mr. Iwata’s paycheck isn’t going to cover those costs. Other high-level executives will also see a slash to their paychecks, between 20 and 30 percent. To respond to slow 3DS sales, Nintendo yesterday cut the price of its portable 3D gaming system from $ 249 to $ 169, which makes the device incredibly difficult to profit from.
Iwata acknowledged this in the meeting, and said he expects the price cut to help grow demand, which should then cut costs of production. Iwata also recognized the fact that a big problem with the 3DS is a lack of games, an issue the company plans to address ASAP.
When we send out an embarrassing text message at 2am, at least we can — in the words of Jaime Foxx — blame it on the a-a-a-a-a-alcohol. Unfortunately for New Zealand mobile carrier 2degrees, pinning it on the Henney, just ain’t gonna cut it this time. Early Wednesday morning, a few unlucky users were greeted by an influx of hundreds of unsolicited text messages. A few of those affected took to the company’s Facebook page for answers, and were provided with the following response:
Early this morning, a software implementation problem caused a small number of people to receive texts not intended for them. Our network team quickly identified the problem and resolved it by 2:30am. We apologize to our customers for any inconvenience this may have caused.
On second thought, judging from the reactions that apology received, the outfit might have been better off using the Blue Top as a scapegoat.
Drama concerning a 7-inch slate from Acer — who woulda thunk it? After teasing the world with a (relatively) low-cost entrance back at the start of this year, Acer abruptly informed us that the Iconia Tab A100 wouldn’t ship until the latter half of 2011. Now, however, it looks like we’re honing in on yet another specific time frame. Thanks to a Facebook reply from Acer Deutschland (and prying from one Jakob Otto), we’ve now learned that the A100 is back on schedule for a September release — at least across the pond. ‘Course, only time will tell if software was the reason, but given that Android 3.2 was tailor-made for 7-inch devices, we’re cautiously optimistic that Acer’s going to reward those who waited with an updated OS.
If you’ve stayed with friends who live in European cities, you’ve probably had an experience like this: You hop onto their WiFi or wired internet connection and realize it’s really fast. Way faster than the one that you have at home. It might even make your own DSL or cable connection feel as sluggish as dialup.
You ask them how much they pay for broadband.
“Oh, forty Euros.” That’s about $ 56.
“A week?” you ask.
“No,” they might say. “Per month. And that includes phone and TV.”
It’s really that bad. The nation that invented the internet ranks 16th in the world when it comes to the speed and cost of our broadband connections. That’s according to a study released last year by Harvard’s Berkman Center for Internet & Society on behalf of the Federal Communications Commission.
