Device owners must also delete their data before they install the update.Reportedly, the process is due to encryption issues from the last closed beta that have not yet been fixed.Thanks to previously-imposed sanctions finally being lifted, ZTE finally pushed out the Android Oreo update to the Axon 7.The release might have severely overlapped with Android Pie’s general availability, but who cares!Unfortunately, you might want to think twice about installing the Oreo update if you own the Axon 7.Submarine Captured These Horrifying Titanic Images

But not everything was completely perfect, so now it's gratifying to UE Boom 3 and UE Megaboom 3 has been launched.They are introduced in metallic red, black, blue and purple but they are learning as well as the forerunners come in all sorts of color combinations and patterns.Looking closer, they have actually a new, denser lining, a material used in motorcykeljackor, and fire equipment.Much really is the new speakers are sift-proof and more resistant to abrasion, in addition to previously to be waterproof and shock-resistant.Looking closer I notice that the wide strip on the back, where the volume set, now has been significantly narrowed.As with most Bluetooth speakers, it is just a hold on the pairing button and select the speaker among your phone's available Bluetooth devices.

When Hxouse (pronounced House), the mentoring and incubator program for Toronto’s emerging artists, entrepreneurs and other innovators formed by The Weeknd’s creative director La Mar Taylor, launches next month, it will do so with the support of Twitter Canada.After all, it was on Twitter where the idea for Hxouse spread its wings.“Since the beginning of our creative journey Twitter has always been a platform that allowed us to express ourselves in our own unfiltered voice,” Taylor, co-founder of Hxouse, creative director of The Weeknd’s XO label (andan) Adweek Toronto Brand Star, said in a statement.“It is only right that we align with the platform that allowed for us to build such a resource beyond vision.”— Twitter Canada (@TwitterCanada) September 28, 2018The ideation behind Hxouse dates back to Dec. 5, 2016, when Taylor issued a series of tweets addressing a creative problem in Toronto.

More telescope than camera, the Nikon Coolpix P1000 takes this concept to the extreme, with a best-in-class, 125x optical zoom that lets you survey the craters of the moon.All told, the camera weighs more than three pounds, but weight may not be the only drawback of putting such a big lens on a compact camera.At the extreme telephoto end, is it even possible to shoot handheld and get sharp results?Sure, it’s still lighter than hauling a DSLR and a few big lenses around, but it’s not the automatic go-to choice for adventure photographers.If the on-lens controls aren’t your thing, at the top of the camera you’ll find another zoom toggle switch wrapped around the shutter release button, the typical setup of long-zoom bridge cameras.The back of the camera is dominated by a 3.2-inch, 921,000-dot LCD screen that flips out to the side and rotates a full 180 degrees, meaning, yes, you can see yourself when you take a selfie — although, you certainly won’t be doing this at the telephoto end of that 125x zoom.

As if long telephone wait times weren’t infuriating enough, folks who call some corporate customer service departments in France actually have to pay for each minute they spend on hold.Ultimately, a surtaxé is added to their phone bills, and the funds redistributed to the brands that kept them hanging on the line.With such indignities in mind, ING Direct launched a campaign touting its free telephone hold times in France, which last, on average, less than 50 seconds.The initiative includes an amusing hidden-camera film shot at a gas station near Paris, where the fictitious “wait tax” really strips some gears:“The director (Cyril Tellenne) is a specialist in this type of exercise and had worked a lot for a hidden camera TV show here,” says Jean-Francois Sacco, co-founder and creative chief at Rosapark, which developed the campaign.“There are absolutely no actors in the film except the guy in the booth.

An electronic capsule that measures gases in the gut to revolutionise the diagnosis of gut disorders could be available within four years, following an agreement between Australia's RMIT University and Atmo Biosciences.The commercial licence agreement, which gives the start-up exclusive rights to commercialise the RMIT-developed technology, will enable Phase 2 clinical trials to be pursued.The world-first patented technology can detect and measure gaseous biomarkers in real time to help improve the diagnosis of gut disorders, which affect one in five people in their lifetime.Set to hit the market by 2022, the electronic gas-sensing capsule offers rapid, non-invasive diagnosis of these common and debilitating conditions, which remain undiagnosed in 30% of patients.When swallowed, the capsule moves through the gastrointestinal system and transmits information via a handheld device and mobile app to the cloud for doctors to examine, enabling targeted treatment, earlier relief of symptoms and reduced healthcare costs.As well as pursuing Phase 2 human trials, Atmo Biosciences - an early stage venture of leading health tech and innovation company Planet Innovation - will work to enhance the existing technology and expand the range of gases the capsule can sense.

(If you can’t see anything above, try QQ video instead.)For OnePlus, one is enough.The company, founded in Shenzhen in 2013, tends to introduce only one new model each year.This year, they’ve tasked that phone — the OnePlus 6 — with the near impossible: compete with the iPhone X on style, compete with the Galaxy S9 on performance, remain number one in India’s premium phone market — and do it all for less than $600.Does this cost-conscious premium phone live up to expectations?

The National Science Foundation's (NSF) Tribal Colleges and Universities Program (TCUP) has awarded $14 million to tribal colleges and universities (TCUs) to establish four new centers -- the first of their kind.The Tribal Enterprise Advancement (TEA) centers will build upon the scientific and engineering (S) expertise at the TCUs to prepare the next generation of scientific professionals who will serve as the decision-makers and intellectual resources for their tribes and communities.A trained S professional workforce, positioned for employment in tribal, state and national government agencies, will help change the economic well-being and quality of life on reservations and in other native communities.Since the establishment of TCUs in the 1970s, federal agencies, particularly NSF, have invested in their science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) instructional capacity, supporting curricula, faculty, students and research.The new TEA Centers represent a significant step forward for TCUs that serve their communities as STEM partners."When TCUP began in 2001, we couldn't have anticipated the tremendous growth in the TCUs' STEM programming in such a few years," said Jody Chase, program director in NSF's Education and Human Resources Directorate.

The world is edging closer to a reality where smart devices are able to use their owners as an energy resource, say experts from the University of Surrey.In a study published by the Advanced Energy Materials journal, scientists from Surrey's Advanced Technology Institute (ATI) detail an innovative solution for powering the next generation of electronic devices by using Triboelectric Nanogenerators (TENGs).Along with human movements, TENGs can capture energy from common energy sources such as wind, wave, and machine vibration.A TENG is an energy harvesting device that uses the contact between two or more (hybrid, organic or inorganic) materials to produce an electric current.Researchers from the ATI have provided a step-by-step guide on how to construct the most efficient energy harvesters.The study introduces a "TENG power transfer equation" and "TENG impedance plots", tools which can help improve the design for power output of TENGs.

A Jaguar and Land Rover spokesperson confirmed that Android Auto will be available in all vehicles built in 2019 and beyond.Unfortunately, customers will have to pay at least $280 for the package.Over the weekend, a rumor surfaced that Toyota had finally agreed to include Android Auto in its vehicles after coming to a deal with Google.While this hasn’t been made official, a spokesperson for Jaguar and Land Rover told MacRumors that the two manufacturers will offer both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay in all 2019 cars and beyond.But as with most good news, there’s a caveat.Unlike some companies that just make Android Auto standard, Jaguar and Land Rover will offer it as an extra option for the InControl Touch Pro and Touch Pro Duo infotainment systems.

Instead, the kind of guys who wear shirts patterned like graph paper are watching four colorful dots creep their way around the grid of a city map, like sedated Pac-Man ghosts.Each dot represents a real car, some of the first in the world that will talk to each other, to traffic lights, to pedestrians, and yes, even to the government.Before they learn to drive themselves, cars are going to get a lot chattier.The driver really just punched a button to trigger the airbag sensor and fake the crash, but the results are no less impressive: A nearby CDOT camera mounted on a light pole snaps around to refocus on the scene of the “accident” in just seconds.Accelerometers can measure the thump of broken pavement.“They have micro-level weather data about bridges and roadways, and they can share that in this V2X environment,” Armstrong says.

As of this year, light trucks (including CUVs and SUVs) hold roughly a 2:1 market share compared to passenger cars.The 2019 Cadillac XT4 is the American luxury brand’s first small SUV, slotting under the XT5.Aimed at younger buyers, the XT4 is intended to be a nurturing product — something to introduce new customers and lead to future Cadillac sales.Though on the larger side of its subcompact segment, the XT4 matches up against BMW’s X1 ($34,895), Mercedes-Benz’s GLA ($34,395), Audi Q3 ($33,875), and Volvo XC40 T4 ($34,195).A new scroll wheel and quick select buttons accompany the standard 8.0-inch touchscreen display to avoid the on-screen hunting that plagued previous generations of CUE.Voice commands and steering wheel buttons remain as alternatives to center-stack controls.

Magic Leap first captured imaginations with its promotional material (the video with whale in the gym is, admittedly, impressive) before, more recently, capturing our attention with its soul-crushing price: $2,295 (about £1,750, AU$3,160).What Magic Leap hasn’t been quick to do, however, was provide a concrete app or game for us to look forward to.But, that could change today.The catalyst to that change, potentially, is Angry Birds FPS: First-Person Slingshot, a new game from Rovio and Magic Leap that will leverage the firm's augmented reality (AR) technology.The game, which debuted at a press event in San Francisco, brings the towering strongholds of Angry Birds to your living room and uses the Magic Leap’s controller to fling an avian arsenal at the dastardly pigs.More than a simple tech demo, Angry Birds FPS is a full-size expansion of the franchise into AR with dozens of levels – giving Rovio a new platform to overrun.

“Insatiable,” the Netflix comedy about an overweight high school girl who suddenly becomes slim and beautiful thanks to having her jaw wired shut for a summer, has been drawing controversy ever since its first trailer went online.The reviews for the show were almost uniformly negative, yet they didn’t quite prepare me for the terribleness of the initial episodes, which alternate between feeble attempts to mine humor from hot-button issues like sexual assault and suicide, and even feebler attempts to treat those issues seriously.To help me figure out just what makes this show so bad, I was joined by Original Content‘s original co-host, Darrell Etherington.Our ultimate question: Is this the worst thing we’ve watched for the podcast?We also discuss the fact that Henry Cavill has been cast as the lead in Netflix’s adaptation of the “Witcher” video game franchise.This episode was actually recorded more than a week ago, but I didn’t get time to edit it until after Disrupt SF.
