It’s been another action-packed week for India’s tech and startup scene.Google launched Areo, a hyper local app for food delivery and services.In a really strange move, Google has kind of entered the food delivery services market in India, which has seen quite a bloodbath over the past year with the likes of FoodPanda shutting down operations.2.Snapchat responded to heckling; said it’s “grateful for Indian Snapchat community.” India’s social media scene was on fire this week, thanks to Snapchat.Variety quoted ex Snapchat employee Anthony Pompliano as saying that CEO Evan Spiegel told him (in September 2015) that “the app is only for rich people.I don’t want to expand into poor countries like India and Spain.”3.

There's yet another unexpected way for hackers to attack a system and steal our data, this time using its ambient light sensor.Our gadgets actually have all kinds of weaknesses that could allow nefarious parties to steal our information, and some of them are things we’d probably never consider.One of those weaknesses stems from the fact that our PCs, tablets, and smartphones are stocked with sensors that extract information from our environments and use that data to make our devices more useful.Some researchers have found a way to use the innocuous-seeming ambient light sensor to grab potentially sensitive browser data and pass it along.The ambient light sensor is used for a couple of purposes.It detects background light levels and adjusts screen brightness, and it works as a proximity sensor to determine when to shut off a smartphone’s screen during a call.

When you think of "Cabin Fever 2," "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows" or "Bait Shop" (starring Bill Engvall and Billy Ray Cyrus), only one thought enters your brain.That thought is, "I'm glad I am under no requirement to ever watch any of those movies when Amazon adds them in May."However, there are good titles to catch.Amazon bolstered its James Bond collection by bringing back a whole bunch of titles including "Thunderball," "Goldeneye" and "For Your Eyes Only."In the comedy classic section, you've got "A Christmas Story," "Planes, Trains and Automobiles" and the Naked Gun trilogy.Then there are some all-time greats like "Gone with the Wind," "Wizard of Oz" and "A Fistful of Dollars."

That’s easy enough with a square mile of it, but what about a thousand?But not only does this lack the detail of the previous approach, but the loggers who are to cut the trees will move more slowly as they rely on their discretion to determine what fits the prescription’s bill, or argue over which zone they’re in.Here’s a situation where technology actually can come to the rescue.And with the devastation caused by wildfires recently, it’s not merely a question of healthy forests any more, but of preventing serious disasters.Essentially, a forestry worker will walk (or ATV) around as before observing the forest directly.They can note the locations of individual trees or groups of them with GPS coordinates, but they don’t need to tag every one.

One of the most acclaimed and successful indie games in the past few years has been Prison Architect, from developer Introversion Software.Today, publisher Paradox Interactive announced it was working with Introversion to launch a version for Android tablets, along with Apple’s iPad.The game is all about you building and running a high security prison.Viewed from a top-down perspective, you have to not only construct and maintain the prison itself, but you also have to keep it running by managing your guards and staff.Of course, you also have to keep an eye out on your prisoners, and you can even try to increase their morale by launching special reform programs inside so they don’t try to riot or escape.Introversion launched an alpha version of Prison Architect back in 2012, and used money from its pre-orders to help fund its development through to its final release in 2015.

Samsung delivered somewhat of a surprise when it confirmed the Note series would return this year in the form of the Galaxy Note 8.The Note 7's disastrous run left many thinking Sammy would forgo a new phablet in 2017, at least one with the Note branding, but it seems the company is pushing ahead.And now that the Note 8 has been confirmed, you can cue the usual cavalcade of speculation and rumours, starting with this research note from KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.According to the reputable analyst (via), the Note 8 could be Samsung's first dual-camera phone when it arrives later this year.Kuo predicts the South Korean firm will be adding two lenses to the phablet, and that the camera will be “the most important upgrade” on the handset.He says the dual-cameras will come with 12-megapixel wide-angle CIS supporting dual photodiode (2PD), 13-megapixel telephoto CIS, dual 6P lenses, and dual OIS.

If you use an iPhone 7, iPhone 6s, or an iPhone 6, you know that a battery case is an absolute must-have accessory.You also know what the worst thing about iPhone battery cases is: they connect through the Lightning port, so you can’t plug anything else in while your iPhone is in its battery case.Well, there’s a new case out there that just launched from well-known smartphone accessory maker Anker, and it offers a very smart new take on battery cases.What makes it so different?It’s actually more than a battery backpack than a battery case.The Anker PowerCore Case’s design leaves the entire bottom of the iPhone open so that you can plug in any accessories or headphones you want.

A graphene coating that can change color when it cracks isn't just cool materials science -- it could actually save lives.All-round miracle material graphene has yet another transformative use case to add to the collection: Quickly and easily revealing when a man-made structure is in need of repairs.That’s thanks to researchers at Germany’s Leibniz Institute of Polymer Research, who have developed a smart graphene coating which shows breaks and fractures by changing color.“Extensive research efforts all over the world focus on single-layer graphene, and graphene enables a wide array of functional coatings and paints for many possible applications,” Shang-Lin Gao, a scientist in Leibniz Institute’s Department of Composite Materials, told Digital Trends.“However, our work only considers multilayer graphene nano-platelets with a widely distributed size and thickness.Variable structural coloration is achieved for the first time by overlapping these graphene nanoplatelets.

Today is a big day for Google Earth, as Google has delivered a large update that adds a lot of new features.In fact, the update is so big and packs in so many features that Google is prompted to call it “the new Google Earth.” Indeed, there’s a lot to explore, so let’s get down to it.These are “guided tours” around our fair planet, usually hosted by someone who knows what they’re talking about, such as Jane Goodall or BBC Earth.There seems to be a good selection of tours already available within Voyager, whether you’re looking to find out more about Earth’s exotic locations or cultures, or you just want to find your next travel destination.Google has also added Knowledge Cards to Earth, allowing you to get more information about the places you’re interested in.Beyond learning more about the location you’re currently looking at, you can also use Knowledge Cards to find related places.

So many phones feel like every other phone, but not this one.It features Bixby, Samsung’s attempt to hang with Alexa and Siri and Google Assistant as the software platform you thread through your entire life.The tall, narrow pane of glass dictated everything about the S8—for better and for worse.But the S8 features a bezel so slim the comparisons fall apart.Tall phones represent the future, and developers will surely catch up.What’s not fine is Samsung’s crazy and apparently last-minute choice to put the fingerprint reader way up high on the back, make it tiny, and stick it right next to the camera lens.
