As mobile phones continue to grow, the demand for multiple screens and smaller frames dominates the design. Manufacturers proudly show higher percentages of the screen-aspect ratio on the body at a press conference. But there is a problem: where to place cameras, sensors, and scanners of fingerprints on such devices? We all saw the cut-off, a scary cut at the beginning; this black dive at the top of many of today's leading phones, from Apple iPhone XS to Huawei Mate 20 Pro - but if the other half 2018 has a way to go after Oppo detects Find X, then the phone zip is the future. It seems that Xiaomi was thinking so after the announcement of the latest product, Mi Mix 3, at a press conference in Beijing, China on October 25th. And Honor followed this conference a week later with an event on October 31 in the same town, pointing to the momentum of the slider phone growing. But is the slider a future or just a passing grace? We are researching current devices trying to present an

I was at Cambridge Union to win the award, which was in the second year, and Pocket-lint was one of the two present presses and heard his grateful speech about how he designed the daily battles, giving a brief insight into the spirit of one of the greatest designers at the world. The project I'm talking about is making what Apple has finally called multi-touch technology that Apple did not introduce before launching the iPhone in 2007, about five years after the start of Raw Work. Jonathan and his team. How did iPhone never really happen ... "Some of you might remember the first use of the interface, maybe it was on one of the first iP

Image
Rumor says Samsung Galaxy F is Samsung's first foldable smartphone. But will it be called Galaxy F or Galaxy X, as it has already been reported? Well, no one knows, and since the rumors of folding smartphones have been so long, we are not convinced that one day it will be launched. It's a phantom phone if you want. In any case, as we have just heard of Galaxy F, we are holding this up. So here's the story of Samsung's foldable smartphone. Samsung Galaxy F: Date and price of the release Possible launch of MWC 2019, to be revealed in November It could have come before the Galaxy S10 It could cost $ 2,000 Rumor is that Samsung's folding phone is coming for years.

Blockchains Fight to Gain Traction in Enterprises Why?

Image
The program in 2000 (is anyone remembering it?) It was created because software developers, from the beginning of computing, thought the most powerful new business systems would come very quickly and that their efficient two-digit date systems will be replaced before the works begin. Arrived in 2000. At that time there were very few CIOs, and many of them would have explained these effective software developers carefully if something does not break, do not fix it, which often reflects a point of view on computer problems. You may think that CIO is passionate about technology, and they are, but today computer systems are almost always critical. Changing them means accepting a significant operational risk. Although you can not create a car with a computer exchange, if these messages do not go out or go, there will be no raw material for the production line. As a result, risk management in large companies means we can not use blockchain technology wherever we see a good app. High

Cryptocurrency Learns How to Lobby, But Whose Benefits Are Being Served?

Image
There is concern that lobbying groups that have formed may have interests that do not correspond to a complete cryptocurrency ecosystem as a whole. Nonetheless, it is too quick to assess the risk of such close ties. Money is power. This may be an old cliché, but the existence of pressure groups in Washington, London and other centers of power may suggest that it has at least one-grain truth. Only in the United States spent $ 3.37 billion for lobbying politicians in 2017, while the annual total amount has surpassed $ 3 billion a year since 2008. Since lobbying is a significant economic activity, this is why the growth of cryptosystems for the first time introduces companies based on the crypto and blockchain. Although their initial moves in that direction were modest and inaccessible, they recently acquired ground, and Coinbase, Circle and other companies announced the creation of the Blockchain Association in September. However, although these obvious good news for cryptogra

Bitcoin Began a New World We Could Have Only Imagined

Image
In ten years since the publication of the Bitcoin White Book, our understanding of the world around us has changed. The introduction of a worldwide digital currency that may exist without the central government has opened our eyes to the opportunities offered by the currency - to be different from what we knew. As a community, we are now aware of the opportunities provided by the digital economy, and we have discovered what it means to act as a private bank - and this is an incredible release. It is also essential that this change took place only in ten years. I admit I read the white paper for the first time; I was skeptical. Some of the problems mentioned, such as duplicate costs, were not among the problems that had to be solved earlier. A complex mining labyrinth, nodes, group awards and evidence of work have made the network unbelievable. For the second time I read it, I was interested. Can this complex network really deal with global transactions? For the third time
