Update 11:02 ET: In our original coverage of the latest Google Camera update we mentioned that the selfie-flash feature is new to Google Camera v4.4.This function, it turns out, has actually been in place since v4.3.We apologize for the confusion and have now removed reference to it from the article.Google Camera v4.4 is now rolling out in the Google Play Store.The latest version carries with it some lightweight, but somewhat useful, new additions, including the ability to double tap the display to zoom in, and a new toggle for switching between camera functions.The double-tap to zoom feature is a simple gesture that will zoom the camera to 50%, and then zoom it all the way out again, when you double-tap on the display.

If you were one of the unlucky souls who desperately tried to pre-order a Fallout 4: Pip-Boy Edition only to find that it had sold out far in advance of the game’s actual launch, you’re finally going to have a second crack at it.Bethesda just announced that it’s planning to re-release its highly acclaimed role-playing title in a Game of the Year Edition, and it’s launching a limited number of Pip-Boy Editions along with it.Fallout 4: Game of the Year Edition comes with the main game along with all of its DLCs.That’s six extra pieces of downloadable content, including: Nuka-World, Vault-Tech Workshop, Contraptions Workshop, Far Harbor, Wasteland Workshop and Automatron.This is typical of Bethesda, with the majority of its titles getting DLC-packed GOTY editions a year or two after their initial debuts, but the twist here is that Fallout 4 is getting a Pip-Boy Edition GOTY version as well.Like the original Pip-Boy Edition of the game, this re-release will include a replica of the wrist-worn computer donned by the main character.

The FCC is seeking to oversee the pace of America's mobile broadband rollout, but it needs a set of standard speeds as a foundation.It’s part of the FCC’s yearly investigation into the rate at which internet connectivity is being deployed to the general American population.In 2010, the FCC determined that basic broadband access had a standard download speed of 4Mbps, and an upload speed of 1Mbps.Those numbers increased in 2015 to 25Mbps for downloads, and 3Mbps for uploads, which still remain effective.Meanwhile, mobile internet connection speeds are throttled by a device’s proximity to the closest cellular tower.Transfer speeds continue to diminish as you move away from the router.

LONDON — Crowdfunding platform Seedrs announced on Thursday that it has appointed a new CEO after an 18-month search.Jeff Lynn, who cofounded the company and served as CEO for five years, is becoming executive chairman.Kelisky's promotion comes after Lynn asked the board to find his replacement early last year, Seedrs said.The company said in a press release: "Lynn told the Board that as Seedrs moved from its startup phase to being a true scaleup, he felt it would benefit from having a CEO who had already led a successful, high‐growth transformations in technology-driven businesses."Kelisky previously served as CEO Fidelity-backed image capture tech company Picsolve.Lynn, whose background is law, said in a statement:

Microsoft's decided not to support digital certificates issued by Chinese outfits WoSign and StartCom, but the first-mentioned CA disputes the decision.Google, Apple and Mozilla binned WoSign certs in 2016.Microsoft says it has now “... concluded that the Chinese Certificate Authorities (CAs) WoSign and StartCom have failed to maintain the standards required by our Trusted Root Program.”“Observed unacceptable security practices include back-dating SHA-1 certificates, mis-issuances of certificates, accidental certificate revocation, duplicate certificate serial numbers, and multiple CAB Forum Baseline Requirements (BR) violations.”The decision means that “Windows 10 will not trust any new certificates from these CAs after September 2017” and allow “natural deprecation of WoSign and StartCom certificates by setting a “NotBefore” date of 26 September 2017.”WoSign has labelled Microsoft's post “misleading”.

If "Jurassic Park" has taught us anything, it's that some dinosaurs are bigger than others.But the biggest dinosaur ever discovered is a colossus among behemoths.Meet Patagotitan mayorum, an herbivore that even Godzilla would find intimidating.A ranch workman stumbled across the first titanosaur bone in Argentina in 2012, but researchers just now settled on an official name for the species.Patagotitan mayorum, which lived during the Late Cretaceous period around 100 million years ago, is one a group of massive dinos known as titanosaurs.The Museum of Paleontology Egidio Feruglio in Argentina calls them "the largest terrestrial herbivores in the history of our planet."

The perfect city bike would be comfy and safe to ride and it would look sharp.Bonus points if it's super-low maintenance and doesn't require you to constantly fiddle with the chain and the shifters.Such bikes exist, but not if you're on a budget.Bikes quickly get pricey once you start adding features that make them lighter, safer, and less fussy.OK, $1,000 is still pretty steep, but you get a bevy of advanced features for your money.You also get a Gates carbon belt instead of a chain.

A start-up called Internet Gaming Entertainment, or IGE, had found a novel way to make millions of dollars each month in the exploding online video game industry.For wealthy gamers, IGE offered an alluring proposition.In April 2004, according to internal company records, IGE took in more than US$2.7 million in revenue for virtual goods in four popular online games, including EverQuest and Lineage II.Michael Angeles, an operations manager in Hong Kong at the time, says Bannon was introduced to him in mid-2005 as “a big investor who would come in and start to help with the company”.The month Bannon joined, IGE opened an office in Shanghai.That supply chain was also part of what made IGE so controversial.

More expensive than the rest of Europe, as it turns out.In fact, anyone commuting into London can expect to pay four times more than their counterparts who work in cities like Berlin, Brussels, and Rome.It's the kind of news that makes me glad I left London, and don't have to commute into the office very often.This report came from the RMT Rail Union, which used the results as an opportunity to slam the government for letting rail companies treat British commuters as "nothing more than self-loading cash cows".The union's figures show that travelling 27 miles from Basildon to London costs commuters around £264 a month, compared to £127.80 (€143) a month it costs Belgians commuters to travel 28 miles from Antwerp into Brussels.Maidstone to London (35 miles) costs £412.50 a month, compared to £99.80 (€111.67) to travel 36 miles from Luckenwalde to Berlin.

The great thing about standards is that there are always so many to choose from.The Internet of Things is a vast digital petri dish for them, and they just keep growing.AT, Cisco, General Electric, Intel and IBM founded the Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC).This covers the intricacies of the production line, creating testbeds for these thousands of obscure components to work together.How do you build the code to control them all and where do you run it?"They've been working hard since the merger to bring those projects together, and we’ve been seeing results in terms of software bridges and interoperability between IoTivity and AllJoyn," he says.

All eyes may be on the iPhone 8 and its anticipated September launch, but iPad just had its best quarter sales-wise in a long time.And not just a tiny uptick: Apple sold 11.4 million iPads in Q3, the three months ending July 1.CEO Tim Cook called these "very positive results" on the company's earnings call.iPad also achieved its highest market share in over four years, Cook said.For a device that's struggled through perpetually slumping sales, Q3 was a big win for iPad, and a sign the slate isn't ready to go quietly into the night just yet.Though Apple didn't break out figures for specific models, this could mean customers bought more less-expensive iPads rather scrambled to scoop up to the newer, pricier models, as TechCrunch suggests.

I samband med att Apple presenterade sin senaste kvartalsrapport framkom en lång rad mer eller mindre intressanta uppgifter.Bland annat fick vi veta följande:Apples kassa är nu uppe i 261,5 miljarder dollar, vilket motsvarar 2 122 miljarder svenska kronor.94 procent av Apples kassa finns utanför USA.Apple har hittills spenderat 223 miljarder dollar på återköp av aktier.Totalt ska 300 miljarder dollar spenderas inom ramen för återköpsprogrammet som pågår till mars 2019.

Just days after we heard about a very serious proposal for Comcast to buy Verizon, new reports are emerging that Sprint, Charter, and T-Mobile could soon become one giant ball of suckiness.Sources told Reuters that SoftBank, the Japanese telco that owns Sprint, is working on financing to buy out Charter.The deal would likely be worth more than $100 billion, and turn Charter-Sprint into a formidable telecoms behemoth that could offer home internet, cable TV, and wireless services.On a conference call to discuss Sprint’s most recent earnings, CEO Marcelo Claure said that an announcement regarding Sprint’s future “should be coming in the near future.” He continued, saying “We have plenty of options, and we’ve had discussions with a lot of different parties.”Charter management has poured cold water on any rumors that Charter could buy Sprint, but the kind of deal being reported would bypass management and involve Charter’s ownership directly.As ever, a merger would make sense on paper.

The name Rolls-Royce conjures images of chauffeurs, toffs and top hats.And while anyone who can afford £400,000 for a new Phantom has probably got enough cash to pay someone to drive it for them, why would they want to?With an almost silent 563hp V12 engine, it's packed with sensors, including a camera that analyses the road ahead to warn the air suspension about the bumps to come, and satellite-assisted transmission that means the gearbox is always prepared for any steep hills.If you can’t even be bothered to drive a car like that, it’s probably time to get a bike.

Tesla will deliver the first Model 3s to eager buyers tonight, but you don’t have to wait until supper time on the West Coast to find out new details.While updating the Tesla website in advance of tonight’s event, some poor developer leaked the Model 3’s power efficiency, which hints at a truly impressive range for the baby Tesla.Source code on Tesla’s website, spotted by Electrek but since removed, points to the Model 3 having an efficiency of 237 Wh per mile, way more efficient than the power draw of the Model S and Model X, which use 344 and 367 Wh respectively.Electric vehicle efficiency is exactly like the miles per gallon of a conventional car: the more efficient, the better.Even though the Model 3 is expected to come with smaller battery options than the Model S and Model X, the far superior efficiency could give it a range of over 300 miles.That efficiency could come at the cost of lower acceleration and fewer heavy gizmos compared to the Model S and X, but Tesla has been saying for a while that the Model 3 won’t have all the same bells and whistles.

One of the most consistent criticisms of Apple's iOS, the operating system used by the iPhone and iPad, is its limited ability to organize documents and data.Until now, documents created on a mobile device have been saved to an app's file space, and opening a document generally involved reopening the app — usually with no easy way to sort and organize the files.But the sandboxed nature of iOS apps meant documents could only be saved to, and then accessed from, the apps that created them.Apple over time added ways of sharing data between apps and to contacts, making it easier to share documents first via email and text message and more recently by using online services such as DropBox and OneDrive.[ Further reading: The 50+ best features in iOS 11 ]Still, users have longed for more complete "file system access" — a way to organize, tag and track all documents from a single location.
