Everyone loves a tale of a bootstrapped startup founder’s journey to an eight-figure exit.The team at Toronto-based Cluep have a good one.The founders of the adtech startup raised less than $500,000 from angel investors before selling their company to Impact Group for $40 million ($53 milllion CAD) this week.Founded in 2012, Karan Walia, Sobi Walia and Anton Mamonov were just 21, 17 and 16 years old, respectively, when they started the digital advertising platform, which uses artificial intelligence to help brands connect and engage with people based on what they are sharing, how they are feeling and the places they’ve been.They, being teenagers, struggled initially to get the company off the ground.At one point, the trio hacked into computers at a university in Toronto to train the neural networks on large amounts of data sets because they didn’t have enough money to buy their own tech.

Google has released an update for the Play Books app on iOS, bringing an updated design that’s “brighter, cleaner, and easier to use,” via AllThingsD.It’s not a major update, feature-wise, but the new design should make navigating, reading, and listening to your books more enjoyable.It’s certainly nice for anyone who buys their ebooks and audiobooks from Google’s online store.But it’s the timing that seems more significant: the update came out just hours after Apple launched iOS 12, which also offers an updated design for its own Apple iBooks app.Was Google trying to steal Apple’s update thunder?Probably not since it’s, well, an update to an ebook app.

Young, passionate men in form-fitting costumes; folks who go by the name "witch"; monsters gleefully planning the end of civilization.No, this isn't the Marvel Cinematic Universe—it's the weird, twisted world of American Horror Story.It may not be as intricately plotted and intertwined as the MCU, but the world of Ryan Murphy’s FX anthology series is full of enough recurring themes and characters to fill whole racks full of comics.So, does that mean that if you haven’t watched the seven installments leading up to tonight's Season 8 premiere you’ll be totally in the dark?AHS is still an anthology show, after all, and each season typically manages to stand on its own.So while some seasons may have referenced others—Murder House foreshadowed Roanoke, for example—this one should have far more connective tissue than most.

With Google slated to announce its updated Pixel hardware lineup next month, there has been a number of leaks over the past few days of what Google’s latest hardware designs for its Chromebook could look like.Google is widely expected to take the wraps off of what appears to be two distinct Pixelbook 2 models at its October media event, and the latest images of show what appears to be a convertible Chromebook design with a virtually bezel-less display.Given that the ad depicts what appears to be a Chrome OS device with a similar convertible form factor to the Pixelbook, this design may be for the Pixelbook 2 model with a code name of Atlas.Like the current generation model, this design allows the Pixelbook 2 to convert between laptop and tablet modes with its 360-degree hinge.What’s interesting is that the images for this device come by way of official Google ads on Facebook and not from leaks.The narrow bezels could be the result of photo manipulation, a practice that’s not uncommon for rendering images in advertisements.

Samsung has confirmed that its latest batch of mid-range phones and tablets will arrive in the US from September 14th.The newest entrant in Samsung’s mid-range-but-still-very-nice-looking Galaxy A series, the A6, will be available with Sprint.(Is the A6 Plus coming too?The larger device is available in Europe, but Samsung hasn’t mentioned a US launch date.)The Wi-Fi-only version of the 10.5-inch Galaxy Tab A will be in stores including Amazon and Walmart on the same date, while the LTE version will be coming to Sprint and Verizon some time “later this year.” And, after launching with carriers earlier in June, the Galaxy J3 and J7 (mid-range phones but they look like it) will be available unlocked on Samsung.com from the 14th.There are no real surprises here as the devices have been available in various markets earlier this year, but here’s a run down of specs if you should need them:

The tool won’t involve any changes to Apple securityApple Inc, which in June announced it was boosting encryption on its iPhones in order to prevent unauthorised police efforts to unlock handsets, is planning to create an online tool for law enforcement officers to formally request user data.That’s according to a company letter seen by Reuters.In the letter – by Apple General Counsel Kate Adams to Senator Sheldon Whitehouse, a Democrat from Rhode Island – the company said it had responded to 14,000 US law enforcement requests last year that it had generally dealt with within 20 minutes of receipt “regardless of the time of day or night.”Rather than taking those requests by email, the company will now create an online tool for law enforcement officials to make and track requests, according to its letter.Apple is capable of and does provide some user data, such as data stored in its iCloud online service, to law enforcement officials if they make a valid legal request, Reuters notes, but the company has repeatedly clashed with US law enforcement officials because it encrypts its devices in such a way that Apple cannot access the devices, and has refused attempts to build backdoors into its OS.

Despite government instructions to remove misleading listings, online housing rental platforms including 58.com (58同城), Anjuke (安居客), and Fang.com (房天下) have failed to abide by the order.An investigation by the Beijing News found that after the Beijing Municipal Housing and Urban-Rural Development Committee, among others, issued a deadline of September 1 to clean up these listings, the companies still had not complied with the directive.Rental agencies have been found to include fake pictures of apartments in their listings on these platforms to attract more customers.In some instances, what appears to be newly renovated apartments turn out to be old and run down.Location data is also faked, with agencies advertising properties as being close to public transport when long walks are required.Once prospective renters have been attracted by low prices and striking apartments, agents take them to view numerous properties within in the same price range, often with none of them matching the pictures in the listing.

For wireless carriers, the single biggest challenge in deploying next-generation 5G cellular networks is physically equipping new and old towers with 5G radio hardware — a process the FCC says will cost over $200 billion in the U.S. alone.Ericsson has a solution that will ease that pain and lead to faster 5G deployments: a software upgrade called Ericsson Spectrum Sharing, which can turn existing 4G towers into hybrid 4G/5G towers.Spectrum Sharing enables Ericsson’s 4G radio hardware to dynamically and simultaneously service both 4G and 5G devices rather than being dedicated to just one standard.As a result, if a new 5G smartphone includes the ability to transmit on 2.5GHz radio frequencies that were previously used for 4G, it could use the same spectrum for a superior connection — when connected to a compatible radio.There should be quite a few of those: Ericsson says that Spectrum Sharing can be installed remotely via software on Ericsson Radio System radios shipped since 2015.As the company notes, this software upgrade is standards-compliant, and will let carriers quickly upgrade their nationwide networks to 5G coverage without completely dedicating existing 4G towers to 5G, a decision that would reduce 4G availability.

Huawei released new colors for its P20 Pro and unveiled the Lite version of its Mate 20 handset (before it's even introduced the higher-end device).The Chinese company's Honor business teased its new Magic 2 phone and talked up European availability of its Honor Play gaming phone.The sheer breadth of devices launched at IFA is a reminder that the smartphone world isn't just about Apple and Samsung.That dynamic means you'll be missing out on some unique alternatives.ZTE in May shut down "the major operating activities of the company" and didn't resume operations until President Donald Trump intervened and helped broker a billion-dollar settlement."We never left the US, but we do have to re-evaluate our plans," Yee said Thursday in an interview at IFA.

Qualcomm has announced a new version of its aptX audio platform at IFA 2018, which aims to deliver the same performance and quality of a wired audio connection.The headphone jack is dying as the rise of wireless continues its march across our devices - Qualcomm says the wired connection is going away - but there’s potentially good news for audiophiles worried about a poorer, wireless audio experience.AptX Adaptive is the latest version of the firm's wireless sound technology, and Qualcomm claims it provides a robust, hi-res and virtually glitch-free listening experience.It's not just focused on music playback though, as aptX Adaptive has been tuned to improve audio response for gaming and movies.Current Bluetooth doesn't address latency issues - which proves problematic when gaming or watching video - and it's an issue you don't get with a wired connection.What the Adaptive upgrade provides is a wire-like low latency experience which Qualcomm hopes will encourage more users to ditch the wire and adopt wireless headphones.

If you’ve been patiently waiting for the next generation of Apple AirPods, we have some good news and some bad news.The good news is that you’re likely going to see the Apple AirPods 2 mentioned on stage at Apple’s September iPhone event … but, bad news, you probably won’t be able to bring them home until sometime next year.The information comes by way of Barclays analyst Blayne Curtis who reports that while the new water-resistant AirPods won’t hit the market until late 2019, a version of the AirPod carrying case that supports wireless charging that we've heard rumors about in the past could be available as early as late September.That means that we'll probably see the AirPad-ready AirPods case on stage during Apple's September event with a release date to follow shortly after.Even better, on the software side of things, Apple may potentially add 'Hey Siri' support to the original AirPods by the end of the year – and make that a cornerstone feature of the true wireless earbuds moving forward.Curtis got this information during a tour of Apple’s Asian hardware suppliers and compiled a report of observations and predictions that was put out to investors.
