there will be no GTX 1080M.Instead, the specs and performance are now close enough that Nvidia will be unifying the naming structure across desktop and mobile – you can expect gaming notebooks sporting the GTX 1060, GTX 1070 and even the GTX 1080, albeit with a few slight adjustments.The boost clock stays the same at 1,733MHz, but the base clock drops a little to 1,556MHz.In turn, however, these run slower at new base/boost speeds of 1,442MHz/1,645MHz – said to be a more efficient way of achieving roughly the same performance.Lastly, there's the GTX 1060, which sits in for the outgoing GTX 970M.TDP figures have not been revealed beyond Nvidia saying that they're close to those of the chips they replace.

Google is taking on the likes of FaceTime and Skype with its brand-new messaging app for iOS and Android.Duo is a free app for 1-to-1 video calling that makes speaking to friends and family easier on mobile devices than using Google's already popular Hangouts service.Duo also boasts a new feature called Knock Knock, which shows a live video of the person on the other end before you pick up.Google's blog post says this feature is to "make calls feel more like an invitation rather than an interruption".The app is also end-to-end encrypted to ensure your phone is secure when using it.Duo will ask for your phone number and access to your phone's contacts list, but you won't have to sign up for anything.

A new leaked image purporting to show some of the iPhone 7's internals is making the rounds – and apparently reveals that Apple's next smartphone will feature a new fast charging standard.Android manufacturers have been mucking about with making their phones charge quickly for a while now – Qualcomm's Quick Charge and the OnePlus' Dash Charge are a couple of the names on the market – but Apple has so far failed to join the speedy party.That could be about to change, depending on how gullible you're feeling today.Posting on Twitter, @the malignant claims that the following photo is a leaked snap of the iPhone 7's logic board next to that of the iPhone 6S :Apparently, the hazy pic speaks volumes about the iPhone 7's juicing capabilities, telling us that the new phone will support chargers that output sy 5V/2A five volt, two amp , a significant improvement over the current one amp current.But to say the image is dubious would be a hefty understatement.

China launches world s first quantum satelliteChina has successfully launched the world's first quantum satellite that is designed to establish hack-proof communications between space and the ground.It was launched from the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center located at China's northwestern province of Gansu at 1.40am local time on 16 August.The satellite, Quantum Experiments at Space Scale Quess , is nicknamed Micius after a fifth century BC Chinese scientist, who is said to be the first to conduct optical experiments.As quantum communication features ultra-high security, it is impossible to intercept or crack details that are being transmitted through it.The new satellite would help scientists conduct secure communication between Beijing and Xinjiang's Urumqi.

Apple's attitude towards smartphone batteries is ambiguous at best, even comical at one point.While iPhones are arguably more battery efficient than their Android counterparts, they still leave much to be desired.And when users clamored for a better battery, Apple responded by putting out a highly criticized battery pack.It seems that with the iPhone 7, Apple will be going around the issue again but with a compromise.According to a leak, the iPhone 7 will, at least, get faster charging speeds.Smartphone makers on the Android side of the fence have been boasting about fast charging technologies recently, either utilizing a feature that comes almost free with the chipset, like Qualcomm's Quick Charge, or pushing forward their own in-house tech, like OnePlus' DASH Charge.

These days, it's almost impossible to keep a new device, be it smartphone, tablet, or even smartwatch, secret for long.While most of the time, manufacturers want to keep things completely under wraps to protect it from the competition, leaks can also work in favor of a product, building up the hype at no extra cost to the company.So this latest set of leaks for the LG V20 could still go both ways, especially considering how ambiguous the market has been towards the LG G5's take on modularity.The information comes from a Redditor who claims to have some insider scoop on the T-Mobile's release details for the LG V20, though, as always, take things with a grain of salt.As for carrier-specific information, he claims that T-Mobile plans to open pre-orders on the 14th of September, with a very tentative September 23 shipping date.As for the price, it's set at $650, which is a very surprising number considering an equally high-end Galaxy Note 7 costs around $850.

Our iPhone might be one of our most treasured pieces of technology, but that doesn t mean we always treat them with the respect it deserves.As anyone who owns a smartphone can testify, they do have a tendency to fall out of our hands especially when there is a hard, concrete surface below .And always seems to land screen down, damn it.Continuing to use the phone but getting tiny shards of glass in your finger every time you swipe.And your face, if you re lucky.Admitting defeat and reverting to your Nokia 3310.

Professor Brian Cox resorted to drastic measures on live TV to try to convince an Australian Senator that climate change is real.The physicist appeared with Malcolm Roberts, a far-right politician and climate change sceptic, on the ABC panel show QHe became frustrated when the senator repeatedly said there was no empirical evidence for climate change.Cox told Roberts the absolute, absolute consensus was that human actions had caused the world s average temperature to increase.But it seemed Roberts - an elected senator and member of Australia s One Nation party - could argue with it.He said he was stunned at Cox s argument which had no evidence behind it, and that he believes there has been a pause in global warming for two decades.So Cox decided to pull out a graph - the Global-Land Ocean Temperature Index - to show that Roberts was wrong.
