Researchers in Germany achieve 6Gbps across 37km distance, claiming it could improve satellite broadband, mobile backhaul and emergency communicationsResearchers in Germany have achieved a world record data transfer of 6Gbps over a 36.7km distance in a development that could improve rural broadband and emergency communications in the future.A signal was successfully sent between Cologne and the town of Wachtberg, with the researchers stating the transmission rate was only achieved because of the bandwidth available in the E-band and through the use of efficient transmitters, receivers and powerful amplifiers.Wireless data recordESA satellite 2Both the transmitter and receivers were fully monolithically integrated millimetre wave circuits MMICs based on transistor technologies developed by the Fraunhofer Institute.In the transmitter, signals were boosted to comparatively high powers of up to 1 W using power amplifiers, while built into the receiver were low-noise amplifiers capable of detecting weak signals at high distance.One of the biggest barriers to more comprehensive mobile coverage has been the availability of high speed backhaul, something wireless could help break down.In February, researchers at University College London UCL have achieved a record transmission rate of 1.125Tbps on fibre.

Now Google wants namely replacing them with so-called trust score that identifies you by your usage patterns. Abacus Project is the name of the system that Google is now pushing to kill the passwords. Why should they not be able to know who I am, so I do not need a password, said Daniel Kaufman, who leads Google's advanced technology projects when he unveiled plans for the conference Google I / O. All of it will also be entered into an API that developers can put in apps and used to be able to identify you in this way. API will according to Daniel Kaufman will be available to developers by the end of the year. Even now tested the system at 33 universities and in the summer, a number of banks also try it, reports the site Greenbot.

Above: GoGame is a Singaporean publisher promising to help developers identify fraud in player acquisition.Marketing fraud extracted $6.3 billion from developers last year, and Singaporean publisher GoGame says developers should only work with publishers that understand that problem.Speaking at the Casual Connect conference in Singapore last week, GoGame chief executive officer David Ng explained that mobile studios desperate for new players are often paying for bots instead.Gaming on iOS and Android thrives on free-to-play apps with virtual items that sell for real money.Typically, a studio agrees to pay a certain amount for each install these networks bring in.For now, he probably has a point since a publisher paying attention to fraud like this is better than one that wants to brute force their way through it with larger marketing budgets.

The results show that telecom operators have a lot of older customers improve service. unnecessary purchases In general, problems arise if the seller to use unfamiliar jargon or sales situation is busy and oppressive. One typical mistake is that customers buy the seller offered by 4G 3G phone even if it would be better for his residence in its territory. Valli Association Ikäteknologiakeskuksen Development Manager Sanna Kaijanen, in turn, says that the customer may sell the cable economy entertainment package, although this is not even a cable connection. René Tigerstedt Photo: Timo Keränen / Yle Post Office Lawyer Anna Saarela has also come across a case that the 10 Mbps internet connection was changed to 100 megabits per second. The problems known to operators Telephone Operators admit to sales and customer service related problems, which all operators will be a lot of feedback.

Ummo is a data-driven app that aims to bring self-awareness to public speakingAn app developed by Harvard and MIT students analyses speech patterns to help users improve their public speaking skills.The prospect of having to spontaneously speak and articulate a concept can be quite daunting and often, as noticed by the creators of Ummo, lead people to "fall into the trap of using endless filler words "umm", "uhh", "you know", "like" to bridge the silence as they articulate their thoughts.""We came together as friends at Harvard and realised that less-than-perfect communication is an issue for all and one that people desperately want to improve and yet simply have ignored for too long.We talked to everyone from professors in the communications programme at Harvard, to executive coaches and speech therapists around the nation, as well as to our former employers consulting firms and banks that spent ample money on communications coaching for new-hires to understand the most common use cases.Unlike some other productivity apps, Ummo currently stores no data including audio files.Most notably, Ummo does not provide "overall rating" for users' speeches.

From next month Three customers are advised to be more selective when sending pics of their food, cats or drunken escapades - as the mobile operator is more than doubling its pricing.Yes, like the ones that are eating mobile operators' breakfasts with internet voicecalls over Wi-Fi and pic-happy web-text.From 13 June, the charge for sending multimedia messages will change from 17.4p to 40p per picture or video message with a size limit of 300KB.It warned customers: "If you re being charged for MMS when you didn t intend to it might be because some phones, like older Samsung models, recognise emoticons or emojis as photos.It advised customers there are other ways to send multimedia messages "whilst keeping the costs at bay" such as mobile applications like Skype.Of course plenty of penny-pinchers won't be using their packages, but rather Wi-Fi that is not provided by the operator...A spokesman from Three said: Our MMS charge remains competitive in comparison to other providers.

Google is testing a real-time indexing API.In a talk Thursday at Google I/O, Google s Richard Gingras said the purpose is to give trusted publishers a way to send Google their content immediately, without Google having any delay in discovering that content.Google can then surface that content to searchers immediately, in real time, without any delay.Here is a photo of Gingras announcing it:Google plans on releasing a beta more widely in the upcoming months, but until then, we won t hear much about this new API.Google does have a live carousel, which shows live real-time coverage, but this seems different.Here is a photo of what real-time results look like with the API:About The Author

The tech world is built and rewarded on hockey-stick growth, wild valuations, beta launches and speed: Google, Facebook, Twitter, Uber.When people without medical degrees rely on data from companies that may not have FDA approval, there s a risk that they could make dangerous decisions about their own health.At a recent pitch contest, one founder attempted to sell an idea for an electroencephalogram EEG that provided biofeedback for a chronic medical problem.There may be many reasons for that disconnect, but one indicator of trouble for this company was the lack of any medical professional on the founding team or the board.Without any kind of regulation, this product could be mass-produced, cost investors and consumers millions of dollars, and, even worse, produce inaccurate results about vital health functions.And let s be clear, consumers in mobile health are you, your parents, your children, your spouse and your loved ones.

Credit: AppleApple s main flagship store in San Francisco, the one at 1 Stockton Street, has never been a particularly nice place.It opens to the public this Saturday, and on Thursday, retail head Angela Ahrendts showed off the store to journalists, unveiling several new design elements.Some just seem like rebrandings: The space for educational workshops is now called The Forum and has a really big video screen, and the off-the-floor space where Apple reps help business customers is now called The Boardroom.Although night owls beware: Union Square isn t the most inviting place in the middle of the night.Goodbye, Genius Bar applestore @AngelaAhrendts pic.twitter.com/zD7W2UFYQi— Shara Tibken @sharatibken May 19, 2016This might be one of those things you have to experience to figure out if there s any benefit.Apple Stores already lack a checkout—instead you flag down an employee with a handheld point-of-sale system—so having a desk for the Genius Bar at least gave the store that little bit of structure.

Those are some of the words used by those who attended Mark Zuckerberg s meeting with conservatives Wednesday at Facebook s headquarters in the wake of accusations of political bias at the social network.But also: No one is kidding themselves — everyone knows how left-wing Silicon Valley is.The accusations of bias stem from a recent Gizmodo report based on an anonymous former Facebook worker who claimed his fellow Trending Topics curators suppressed news from conservative media outlets.Facebook has denied finding evidence to support the claim, but the controversy ruffled enough feathers — including those of a senator — that CEO Zuckerberg arranged a meeting with conservatives such as Glenn Beck and several others.In a post Wednesday after the meeting, Zuckerberg thanked those who attended and said: It s important that Facebook remains a platform for all ideas and that we continue to give every person a voice.It doesn t make sense for our mission or our business to suppress political content or prevent anyone from seeing what matters most to them, he said.The Wall Street Journal cited a Barclays Capital estimate that political candidates were expected to spend up to $300 million on Facebook ads this year.Other Facebook executives who attended the meeting included Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg, plus a couple of conservatives, according to Politico and the WSJ: board member Peter Thiel, who is a California delegate for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, and Joel Kaplan, formerly an aide to George W. Bush and now the company s head of global public policy.Photo from Associated PressTags: conservatives, facebook, Glenn Beck, mark zuckerberg, trending news
