I cannot believe how many websites I m finding for businesses that do not work properly on mobile devices!Major news organizations, attorneys and even Apple s own website that introduces people to their new 7 Plus iPhone requires a magnifying glass to read the text even on one of the biggest phones in the world with one of the largest display screens.There is also a side scroll bug on the Apple website that prevents the entire top navigation menu from being displayed properly in vertical mode requiring users to flip to horizontal to even see the selections.In other words, your website needs to be responsive.No matter whether a visitor to your website is browsing on a laptop, iPad or a phone it simply needs to work.Scott Web Media specialists can redesign your website so that it is responsive to all devices.
Samsung SmartThings Hub and sensors Photograph: SamsungThe Internet of Things – where seemingly ordinary devices connect to each other and the internet to make them more than the sum of their parts think fridges that know when you re out of milk and then order more for you – is still more a concept than a reality for many.Samsung s SmartThings hub hopes to be that central pin that connects them all.Photograph: Samuel Gibbs for the GuardianIt supports home-network based devices, plugging into your router to control them through fixed or Wi-Fi networks, as well as two of the most broadly used wireless home-automation standards, ZigBee and Z-Wave.It means that the Hub can talk to almost every product currently available on the market that doesn t use an isolated proprietary system.

p Update 09/05/2017: People backing-up WhatsApp conversations through iCloud will now benefit from the messages being encrypted by default.WhatsApp has confirmed the backed-up files are encrypted and it is believed the feature was introduced in late 2016 but wasn't spotted until now.WhatsApp has turned on end-to-end encryption across all of its apps, the company has announced.The Facebook-owned app, which has more than one billion monthly active users, has turned on the Signal Protocol, developed by Open Whisper Systems, by default.The open-source private messaging system, which has been supported by Edward Snowden, will protect group chats, attachments, voice notes, and voice calls made across WhatsApp on Android, iPhone, Windows devices and some Nokia and BlackBerry models.The encryption method lets users see content that has been sent but does not allow service providers, such as WhatsApp itself, to access the content of the messages.
In one hand they held traditional glasses of bubbly, but in the other were sheets of paper they had filled with their personal data.They wanted to know what would happen in a world where instead of vetting potential dates by their artfully posed selfies or carefully crafted dating-site profiles, we looked at data gathered by their computers and phones.As use of data-gathering devices increases, it s a world that s just round the corner.Elsden and his colleagues want to explore other ways we can use data that gets collected as we go about our modern lives.Can we give people more control over it, make it more ambiguous or playful?It asked for a host of specific numbers: shoe size, the farthest distance they had travelled from home, the earliest and latest times of day they had sent an email in the past month, their heart rate as they filled out the form.
p The NHS has a rotten reputation when it comes to technology.At Davos in January last year, NHS England CEO Simon Stevens announced seven innovation testbeds that will take a different approach to tackling the impending health crisis.Two of the testbeds focused on Internet of Thingstechnology, with Surrey and Borders partnership NHS Foundation Trust using smart devices to help people with dementia stay at home longer and West of England's Academic Health Science Network developing a diabetes digital coach.The other five testbeds weren't as prescriptive: in North East London and in Lancashire and Cumbria, testbeds were looking to support older people with dementia; Heywood, Middleton and Rochdale NHS was working with Google's Verily on prediction and prevention techniques; Sheffield was looking to help people with diabetes, hypertension and other long-term condition treat themselves at home; and the Birmingham and Solihull project was developing tools for managing mental health.That's only expected to increase as demographics skew older, with the number of people 75 or older up by 89 per cent since the mid 1970s.As long term illnesses affect more people – as of 2013, there were 3.2 million people with diabetes – that's expected to increase to four million within the decade.
p Wildlife may now be thriving in the Chernobyl exclusion zone, but it's not always been so scenic.After the 1986 nuclear reactor disaster, the area was completely deserted, leaving buildings empty and in disrepair.Now, a VR tour allows you to experience the before and after of the disaster.The Chernobyl VR Project, developed by Polish games company The Farm 51, is the "first ever virtual tour of Chernobyl and Pripyat intended for VR devices".The project was filmed using high-resolution stereoscopic cameras and includes shots from inside houses, amusement parks and offices.The Farm 51 team say the project is intended to "tell the story" of the victims of the disaster.
Installing apps is a time consuming pain in the arse sometimes.Google just announced it s brilliant solution to this problem: Instant Apps.What s more exciting is that Instant Apps will be compatible all the way back to devices running Android Jellybean.The most common way to activate an Instant App download seems to be clicking on a link, but Google also suggests it could be done in other ways.In one example, an NFC tap actives the download of a payments app at a parking meter.Although Google s announcing the initiative today, it s not ready for prime time just yet.
If I'm already at my computer, I'll do a quick Google search to see if I can find some info on the caller before they go to voicemail.WhoApp is a new app that specializes in finding out who is calling you.The call will be sent to WhoApp, who will dial back the number and show you information on who the caller is.If the caller is some form of telemarketer, they'll show a large warning shield, letting you know that you probably don't want to answer it.And since they appear to call the person back, that does make me think that there will be some issues, depending on the caller.There's no word on whether or not the company plans to bring it to Android devices.
LONDON Reuters – Britain s ARM Holdings, the provider of technology for the iPhone, has bolstered its exposure to the developing market of embedded computer vision with the purchase of Apical for $350 million, it said on Wednesday.Embedded computer vision involves the use of digital processing and algorithms to interpret meaning from images or video – allowing devices to understand their environment through visual means.Cambridge-based ARM said the acquisition of Apical would accelerate its growth into new markets such as connected vehicles, robotics, security systems as well as industrial and retail applications.It said it would also extend ARM s product portfolio in existing markets such as smartphones and cameras.Computer vision is in the early stages of development and the world of devices powered by this exciting technology can only grow from here, said ARM Chief Executive Simon Segars.ARM said Apical s imaging products are used in more than 1.5 billion smartphones and approximately 300 million other consumer and industrial devices.Founded in 2002, Apical employs about 100 people, mainly at a research and development center in Loughborough, central England.Last month, ARM reported better-than-expected first quarter profit.Its shares have, however, fallen 11 percent this year on reports Apple has continued to reduce iPhone production.The stock closed on Tuesday at 928 pence, valuing the business at 13 billion pounds.Reporting by James Davey; Editing by Mark Potter

During the recently concluded Google I / O 2016 event featured the American sökjätten, just as speculation before the event took place hinted, the new, and the Google-developed virtual reality platform Daydream. Daydream is a much more advanced version of its predecessor Cardboard and is both software and hardware-dependent and is closely linked with the upcoming version of Android, in short, called N. To ensure that it works as well as possible, Google has developed a standard that interested manufacturers must adapt their hardware for, such as special sensors and displays of a certain quality and standard. By doing Daydream dependent on specific hardware, instead of just consist of software, Google can ensure that delay, repsonstider and image flow will be as good as the technology permits, resulting in a better experience for the user. Although Daydream is still in its early years, Google has been able to find no less than eight manufacturers who are interested in producing Daydream compatible devices; Samsung, LG, HTC, Asus, Xiaomi, Huawei, ZTE and Alcatel. Missing from the list does unfortunately including Sony and Lenovo / Motorola, but we're guessing that many more manufacturers will join during the year.

Those who wish can register their interest at home.google.com. Whether the product will be launched officially in Sweden is highly uncertain.
Oracle Chief Executive Officer Safra Catz put an Old Testament spin on her company's software copyright battle with Google as she told jurors about an encounter with her adversary's top lawyer at a bat mitzvah in 2012.Catz's testimony in San Francisco federal court was intended to buttress what Oracle claims was Google's brazen theft of Java code to build its Android operating system, and to begin to explain how that theft caused the database maker damages of $9.3 billion.Catz's message: Google undercut Oracle's licensing revenue by co-opting Java to develop Android into the operating system now used in 80 percent of the world's mobile devices.Google took a language designed to "write once, run anywhere" across different computing platforms and "forked," or split into two, Oracle's Java community of programmers, she said.AdvertisementGoogle lifted and employed the code so that it would only run on Android, leading smartphone manufacturers such as Samsung Electronics, ZTE., and Motorola to adopt that platform, which the search engine company offered for free, and to cease paying Java licensing fees to Oracle, Catz testified."They use Android instead of taking a copy of our software."
Researchers have developed a new solar powered battery, capable of changing its shape to fit various flexible forms.The team says the battery could transform the wearables market by lowering the space required for a battery, a big benefit for e-skin and e-clothes products.See Also: America trumps Europe in fitness wearables The components are electronically connected via flexible copper-polymer interconnects, mounted on a highly elastic silicone core, and enclosed within a silicone shell, the team said.The authors demonstrated the use of these systems for continual logging and wireless transmission of body temperature data in a variety of realistic scenarios, such as monitoring skin temperature during physical exercise and bathing, and measuring temperature changes during breathing.The battery may also be a welcome addition to the e-skin market, with researchers recently creating a much longer lasting tattoo that changes color and can even track things like UV rays and heart-rate.Wearables are still a young market, but with 67 percent growth from 2015 to 2016, more companies are starting to see the potential of devices able to gather more data on the customer.
