HTC confirms that a flagship Snapdragon 835 phone is coming this year

Fresh off reports that Samsung’s Galaxy S8 would be the first phone to launch with the highly anticipated Snapdragon 835, HTC wants everyone to know it won’t be left behind. Despite the upcoming release of a brand new flagship built on the older 821 architecture, HTC is vowing to deliver an 835 phone as well this year, possibly just months after the U Ultra’s launch.htc u ultra pdp hero

When HTC unveiled its dual-screen, all-glass handset earlier this month, there were some questions as to why the company was opting to introduce its premium handset now rather than wait until the newer chips were readily available. In an interview with Tbreak, Chialin Chang, president of smartphones and connected devices at HTC, dismissed those concerns and said the release is part of a very specific strategy.

“When we will look back, it will be clear why HTC introduced (the U Ultra),” he said in a brief but wide-ranging interview. “We want to have a couple of months of leadership before the next flagship CPU comes. But that will be in another period of time—not at MWC. Not for us or any other player. I can tell you that for sure.”

Earlier this week, it was reported that Qualcomm’s latest processor would be making its debut in the Galaxy S8, and Chang’s comments seem to jibe with that. However, while HTC might not be at the front of the line to get its hands on the new 10nm chip, it will be sure to take advantage of it once it arrives.

“Every time there is a brand new CPU with power that we can leverage, we’re always at the forefront doing that,” Chang told the site. “When the next flagship CPU comes, HTC will be one of the very first tier doing that. … When the new CPU comes, HTC will have another flagship.”

A second top-tier phone would be a break from HTC’s usual release schedule, and Chang’s comments could serve to blunt the impact of the U Ultra, as would-be buyers wait to see what the Snadragon 835 phone brings to the table. But Chang is confident in the company’s strategy. “Some people are talking about the timing, but timing was determined 9 months ago. This is the best CPU out there.”

Additionally, the mobile chief briefly discussed Android Wear (there won’t be an HTC watch anytime soon), the Pixel (just “one aspect” of HTC’s relationship with Google), and Google Assistant (it will come when its ready). Chang also addressed concerns about the U Ultra’s relatively small 3,000 mAh battery, assuring customers that it “will get you one day” while discussing the fine line between form and functionality.

“We wanted to get a symmetric design and the trimming on the sides impacts the battery,” he said. “I admit, the bigger the battery, the better, but there’s always a trade-off with the design.”

 ‘Tis the season for Android smartphone rumors, but it’s rare to get one straight from the company’s mouth. And while it’s great news to hear that HTC will be getting on board with the newest chips as soon as they’re available, we can’t help but look at the U Ultra in a less flattering light now. HTC was already facing hurdles with the U Ultra’s lackluster battery and lack of headphone jack, but now there’s even less reason for people to plunk down $750 to buy a phone that might very well be obsolete before the end of the summer.

French to fight fake news with backing from Google, Facebook

News organizations operating in France will open up a new fact-checking service, CrossCheck, at the end of this month. Their initial focus will be on covering the forthcoming French elections, but with a number of international organizations participating, the project’s reach could grow.Donald Trump

CrossCheck’s focus will be on identifying and debunking misleading news sites, photographs, videos, memes or comment threads.

The service is backed by First Draft News, an organization that offers guidance on how to find, verify and publish content from the social web, with support from Google (through Google News Lab), Facebook and news organizations including BuzzFeed News, Agence France-Presse (AFP), and a host of national and regional French newspapers.

The news organizations involved will help debunk false information, and use that work to improve the accuracy of their own reporting, First Draft said Monday.

But at the News Impact Summit in Paris on Monday, some speakers doubted whether readers appreciate such fact-checking initiatives in the coverage of politics.

Journalists tend to believe that candidates for office should not tell lies, and assume that readers share that opinion, said Yoni Appelbaum, Washington bureau chief for The Atlantic. “The audience may not share that opinion of what’s qualifying or disqualifying in politics,” he said. “One of the things the media gets in trouble with is bludgeoning its audience over the head with facts rather than telling stories.”

Matthew Ingram, a senior writer for Fortune, summarized that: “The more you argue, the less they trust you. The more you fact-check, the less they believe you.”

One reason for that, said Amy Mitchell, director of journalism research at Pew Research Center, is, “There are so many different definitions of what’s fake news, it’s so hard to agree on the basic facts, even when it’s data.”

That won’t stop CrossCheck and its contributors. These include French newspaper Le Monde, which has built a database of more than 600 news sites, Le Décodex, identifying them as “satire,” “real,” “fake,” and so on.

Facebook, one of the vectors for the kinds of information CrossCheck seeks to debunk, will also support the project, providing dedicated tools, explaining the verification process to its users, and keeping them up to date with confirmed and disputed information relating to the election.

It’s impossible to fact-check every piece of information published in the press or circulating on the internet, so CrossCheck will be picking its battles. It will use CrowdTangle to discover social media content relevant to the election, and Spike a tool developed by NewsWhip to predict which posts will go viral.

It’s not just about France: Bellingcat, one of the CrossCheck partners, will map patterns in misinformation as part of a wider project to map European elections.

And First Draft and Google News Lab have been involved in election coverage before, through the Electionland initiative to report on voter suppression in the November 2016 U.S. presidential election.

Intel packs a tablet chip from yesteryear inside New Balance’s new RunIQ smartwatch

You’re probably aware that the chip inside your smartphone contains more computing horsepower than the systems that helped launch a man to the Moon. Intel’s taken that in a slightly different direction: An Atom chip formerly used in smartphones and tablets now drives New Balance’s latest RunIQ smartwatch.New Balance runiq promo

Jerry Bautista, vice president and general manager of the New Business Group within Intel, said that the New Balance RunIQ fitness watch, which began shipping last week, contains a “Cloverdale Peak” chip inside of it. Specifically, that chip is part of the Z34XX family, Bautista said, which powered tablets and Intel’s smartphone efforts in 2014.

“Powered” is the right word. Intel claimed that the original Z34XX family for tablets and smartphones had enough horsepower to run Asphalt 8, a fairly sophisticated 3D driving game for Android, iOS, and Windows phones. If the RunIQ ran the full Android OS rather than just the more limited Android Wear, you might be able to play some pretty hardcore games on a smartwatch.

Intel has rapidly diversified beyond just a PC company, as chief executive Brian Krzanich likes to remind us at public events. A year or so ago, Intel was making waves with partnerships with Luxottica, Fossil, and Opening Ceremony for a number of stylish, smart devices. What’s interesting is that those devices were often powered by Intel’s Curie or Quark, small low-power edge processors Intel designed as the engines of the Internet of Things. New Balance went a different route, opting for Atom’s more powerful legacy and possibly trading off some battery life in return. Will Atom show up in other wearables, too?

asphalt8 2 1500

 New Balance’s RunIQ doesn’t necessarily look like a former smartphone chip is hiding inside of it, though the $299 fitness watch is decidedly chunky. Intel and New Balance ruggedized and waterproofed the watch to 5 atmospheres. Its battery life is rated at 24 hours, though just 5 with GPS tracking and its real-time optical heart-rate feature turned on. That’s considerably less than what smartwatches like the Garmin Vivoactive line offer, however—or even the Basis Peak, which Intel began manufacturing in 2014, later recalling it after a sensor problem.

Otherwise, the RunIQ watch can store your music with 4GB of onboard flash storage, then stream it wirelessly via Bluetooth. It can’t make calls, though it will display messages from a synced Android phone.

Behind its color AMOLED display, however, hides a surprisingly powerful Atom processor. According to Bautista, Intel repurposed and repackaged the Cloverdale Peak chip for RunIQ. The company isn’t disclosing the exact specifications of the chip, though the related Z3480 gives some idea: the Z3480 is a dual-core, dual-threaded chip, running at a whopping 2.13GHz.

“It’s a very, very capable platform,” Bautista said of the Cloverdale Peak chip. “Android is very, very snappy on this device. There’s no delay. It’s a very good experience.”

Bautista said Cloverdale Peak was a legacy of Intel’s efforts in the smartphone business, which struggled without an integrated cellular radio. In 2016, Intel drastically cut its Atom line, essentially exiting the smartphone business.

So how in the world did Intel shoehorn a smartphone chip into a smartwatch? “Well, the good thing is that we do have very deep packaging expertise,” Bautista said. “So for us, to take a piece of silicon, repackage it, move the I/O differently…is just something that we can do. And it gives more life to a product that is quite fine. Performance is great per watt. So why not? Why not just use that?”

Though Intel has seemingly prioritized Curie and Quark in recent years, Bautista said that Intel will pursue a hybrid strategy, repurposing older silicon like the Atom where it makes sense. Sometime, though, that’s not good enough. “In a number of cases, you do have to build purpose-built silicon from the ground up,” he said.

Myth: fruits are full of sugar

Reality: it is just a coincidence that obesity is increasing and it is becoming an epidemic in the United States. Several researchers have shown that only 1/3 of Americans use the recommended percentage of fruits and vegetables in their diet. The absence of fresh fruits and vegetables in their diet is also one of the reasons that they are turning to words packaged food items which are responsible for obesity.

Despite of having simple sugar in fruits, your body will digest it slowly that is why the carbohydrates present in the fruits will not spike insulin levels. Fruits will give you antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. You can opt for apples and berries which have a good amount of fiber and other essential nutrients. Always include fruits in your regular diet to get numerous benefits. You are not supposed to avoid them because they have are a couple of grams of sugar in them.

Eliminate or minimize corrosion in non-ferrous metals

Rust forms when ferrous metals like steel and iron oxidize. Oxidation causes industrial metal components to become weak and start to break down. Coatings can help prevent corrosion and rust on metals. These coatings are specially designed to prevent oxidation by protecting metals from water and oxygen; the two factors required for rust to develop. Zinc coatings shield ferrous metals from rusting. Zinc will be corroded before zinc coated metal parts start to rust. The protected ferrous metal part remains unaffected as the zinc coating corrodes. A process known as anodizing helps to eliminate or minimize corrosion in non-ferrous metals.
Image result for Eliminate or minimize corrosion in non-ferrous metals
Step 1
The first step involves cleaning the metal surface or parts. This helps to ensure that all dirt and other foreign substances are scraped off the surface of the metal before the coating can be applied. Dry the metal surfaces after cleaning. Some metals require additional preparation procedures after cleaning.

Step 2
Apply the coating on the metal surface. Some of the best coatings for preventing the development of rust on metal surfaces include grease and oil. These coatings provide an extra layer of protection that helps to shield the metal surface from water and oxygen. If you are coating an industrial component, be sure to apply coating on the component as well as all parts that come in contact with it.

Step 3
Apply primer and paint or a rust-proof primer. Primers and rustproof paints are normally used on large metal surfaces. The coating can be applied using vacuum coating equipment. Make sure the surfaces you want to coat are well prepared by removing any dirt, loose paint, or corrosion. Clean greased surfaces with trisodium phosphate or solvent as directed by the manufacturer. It is important to note that primers and rustproof paints cannot be applied to the surfaces of moving parts.

Step 4
Apply a rust-resistant resin on the metal surface. Resin come in a wide range of colors and provide durable rust prevention layer on metal surfaces. However, they are more expensive than paint.

Step 5
Apply zinc coating to chemically protect the underlying metal. You can apply zinc coating on metal surfaces by spraying or brushing. When rusting or oxidation occurs, the zinc will oxidize leaving the ferrous metal underneath unaffected. This process prevents weakening and corrosion of the ferrous metal.

Step 6
The final step involves anodizing the metal parts. Anodizing is a manufacturing process that is usually done on new metal parts and often carried out by professionals.

Top Notch Drug that Controls Appetite Dramatically

One of the prime reasons for the fat accumulation in the body is the ignorance of the common person about how much food to eat.
