Don’t get too attached to that collection of TecTiles if you’re upgrading to a Galaxy S 4. AnandTech has discovered that Samsung’s newer phone includes an NFC chipset that can’t read the older TecTiles, which rely on a less common tag type to register our taps instead of the NFC Forum’s standards. Customers aren’t being left in a bind, however. Samsung has confirmed that it’s about to release a follow-up, TecTile 2, which adheres to the official format while supporting the company’s older NFC-equipped phones. The fully modernized tags will be ready sometime in the “coming weeks.” That doesn’t offer much immediate relief for GS3-to-GS4 upgraders whose TecTile layouts have suddenly been reduced to decorations, but those buyers should at least get the replacements they seek before long.

It’s no key that China keeps a tight lid on web liberties, and it’s not about to brighten today. The federal government has actually passed regulations calling for that locals utilize their genuine names whenever they enroll in web – and phone-based services (not just the access itself); while those were already usual practices, there’s now the genuine hazard of punishment behind them. Anyone who clears those hurdles additionally needs to be more watchful of exactly what they write. If a web page or post is deemed “illegal information,” service hosts now have to delete its public presence, archive it and pass the content along to authorities. The state unsurprisingly suggests that those who already remain on the sunny side of the law have nothing to anxiety from the brand-new measures (where have we heard that prior to?), but the peace of minds won’t be much aid to privacy supporters or those tough corruption.

Trying to find a mobile hotspot that’s a bit less mobile? Rogers’ exclusive LTE Rocket Hub might be the pick for you, delivering 40 Mbps ordinary download speeds with support for up to 15 simultaneous wireless tool connections. LTE service is currently offered in 28 cities above the border, however places without the current network can hop on HSPA + to get connected. The component is set to ship beginning August 2nd, and unlike the provider’s existing Rocket Mobile Hotspot, this bigger taste will certainly require an electrical outlet– however with more than a dozen hookups and a 10 event LTE cap (which we presume applies here as well), you will certainly require to unplug once in a while. More information at the source link below.

Question by Divz: I have this CMU cam2+ robotics project that requires image processing, where do i start from??
I think i am pretty much clear with the idea that the cam actually tracks a ball. I would like to know if there is anyone who has already worked on the same and has experience with the image processing part of the project. For example, what color model is better if the cam is used? After the entire robot is set up how do we actually get the data from the robot?
Answer by Snoopy’s Best Friend
You asked a lot of questions here.
In my experience, the best color to use with the CMU cam (speaking from experience with the original CMU cam) is in the red spectrum — red, light red, orange, etc.
The camera has various modes that you can extract data from it. One mode will tell you how much of a color is visible to it at that point in time. You can also extract where the bulk of each color is in relation to the camera frame. That is how you can tell if something is moving, where a certain color object mass is in relation to the camera frame, etc. The camera sees in two dimensions so it can’t tell you how far away something is, but it can give you x-y coordinates in relation to the frame avaialble to it at that time.
If you go to various robotic sites, there are samples of these programs. I am assuming you have already been to the CMU website as well.
I am not quite clear on what you are asking in your last question.

Question by dr3amzcom3true: How come iPhone requires separate texting number?
It doesn’t make sense. My friend has an iPhone and when she needed to buy the texting plan and that her texting number is different from her calling number..
I was planning to get an iPhone but if I need to get separate numbers, I feel like that’s a little too inconvenient… is it like that to everyone’s iPhone or just hers?
Answer by John
No haha that’s weird. I use Verizon and have an iPhone 4 but it’s great and I have one number.

Holy crap! CyanogenMod, the custom ROM of choice for many power users, will no longer offer root access upon first install. Now before you panic, let’s make this part clear: everyone so inclined may still enable superuser access — for ADB, apps or both — from the Developer Options menu. The biggest change, in fact, is that CyanogenMod is making a significant departure from the majority of custom ROM developers, which offer root access to all users by default (and often without their knowledge). The move is an attempt by CyanogenMod leaders to make the platform more secure, and given the number of ROMs that are based on CyanogenMod (or glean its packages), we wouldn’t be particularly surprised to see this feature become more commonplace amongst other custom Android ROMs. To learn more about the rationale of the project leaders, be sure to hit up the source link below.
Check out IBM’s 305 RAMAC (Random Access Method of Accounting and Control) hard disk and those gripes about dragging around that USB thumb drive soon evaporate. This 1956 HDD was composed of 50 24-inch discs, stacked together and taking up 16 sq ft of real estate. The once-cutting-edge monstrosity was capable of commanding an annual fee of $ 35,000 and stored up to 5MB of data. Sure, by modern standards it’s a pretty modest capacity, but the RAMAC still weighed in at just shy of a ton. Our technological forefathers could have done with that exoskeleton prototype.
The limitations of online-only DRM are, perhaps, in truth only hypothetical. It’s possible to imagine a DRM scheme that must be online all the time, yet handles outages gracefully and never limits your play. Unfortunately, that DRM is not the kind Blizzard is installing on Diablo 3, one of the most anticipated titles of the year. At a briefing given to a few gaming sites, it was revealed that the game will indeed require an active internet connection at all times in order to play at all.
Remember the last time a top-shelf game did this? Remember the outages, the errors, the frustration, the lack of communication? Blizzard says it has to be this way because otherwise they can’t be sure you haven’t cheated to create your character. What a brilliant solution to the problem!
Here’s the money quote, as reported by 1up:
What a great thing to say! What an incredibly lucid statement! He’s completely correct. There are other games to play. Other games that, unlike Diablo 3, I’ll be buying.
The very first thing I thought of was simply to make the system opt-in: you create a character on Battle.net and log in to play single player, collect loot, and are tracked the whole time. That’s the way persistent online games work. Has been for quite a long time now. But what if you just want to play offline? Why, you create an offline character, who can never be played online. The online character is stored entirely on Blizzard’s servers (like, say, my guy in Bad Company 2), and the offline character is stored locally (oh, like my other guy in Bad Company 2).
Blizzard isn’t stupid — or perhaps I should say, they aren’t stupid in a way that would prevent them from thinking of this solution. But they are stupid if they think this is going to work. Battle.net might be one of the biggest online gaming presences in the world, but if Blizzard thinks this little obstacle won’t be cracked and Battle.net spoofed, they’ve got another think coming. And if they think breaking paying users’ games will decrease piracy, they’re just plain nuts. A little more banter can be found at PC Gamer’s writeup of the briefing.
And a note to Blizzard PR: suggesting people play other games than your own because yours will be deliberately inaccessible isn’t really selling it.
The electric Kangoo is Renault’s version of Ford Transit Connect Electric. Its a small van on a car frame and is very popular in the commercial fleets. Think of it as a vehicle for people who drive less than 100 miles per day and park their vehicles in the same spot every night. It doesn’t offer the most flexibility for everyone, but for some it’s quite promising, except for certain rental fees.
It’s available for order right now in France with delivers later this year in July. The electric motor produces 59 hp with 167-lbs/ft of torque and the battery capacity is 22 kWh. The official range is 100 miles, though maxing out the 1,430 lb payload will probably reduce range. The batteries, housed underneath the floor, have the exact same cells in use by the Nissan Leaf. Sounds pretty good, right? Except the nearly $ 32,000 price tag doesn’t include a battery, and you cannot buy one.
So how does the car actually..um..run? Well, you have to rent the battery; it costs $ 1,500 a year. So while the burden of paying for gas is gone, it costs an additional $ 125 a month, even if you don’t drive it. However, it’s not all sad news. Those who will use it as a work truck in a fleet can almost guarantee that the battery will always work — once it dies, you just rent another.
