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.
Getting into the smart home hardware business, today Google debuted Google Home, a voice-activated home automation system, at the firm s annual developer s conference, Google I/O 2016.We ve had a few teasers over the last few months and Recode previously reported that Google has been working on a portable speaker containing a built-in voice-activated assistant for the whole family in a prototype called Chirp.Mario Queiroz, VP of product management, introduced Google Home, stating that it lets you enjoy music and entertainment, manage every day tasks and Ask Google what you what to do, via a voice assistant.Consumers will be able to request music in specific rooms or request multi-room playback.It ll not only answer your queries and organize your life, Google Home promises to connect your other smart home devices: lights, thermostat, switches and – of course – Google s own Nest devices, with Querioz predicting that in the future it will control things beyond the home, via the voice assistant function.Apple, Microsoft and Google all have voice-activated assistants, but up until now, they ve been limited to mobile devices.
Android Auto may be all about burying the car company's infotainment system under a familiar Android UI from your phone, but Hyundai is showing off a new, more seamless integration.In the vehicles with Android Auto that Hyundai has on the market, the only mention of the automaker you'll find is the "Return to Hyundai" button which takes you back to the native UI.That shows your most recent driving score, a figure calculated based on how economical you are, whether you slam on the brakes or slow smoothly, how aggressively you accelerate, and how long you leave the car running idle.That creates a geofenced zone outside of which, if the car is taken, you'll get a push-notification warning on your phone.First of all you need to have a newer version of Android Auto than is currently on the market; that's because the APIs Hyundai is relying upon aren't supported in the existing version.Though the car is connected - it has a built-in LTE modem - and can communicate things like your driving score and maintenance issues with the cloud, the custom menus won't show up in the Android Auto interface unless your phone is plugged in too.
The mobile wallet for Android-powered smartphones is opening for business in the UK — its first market outside the U.S. where it launched in September 2015 — starting out on NFC-enabled Android devices running KitKat 4.4 or later.Tap to pay big in the UKNotably, American Express is not yet included in the card types supported it s available in the U.S. though so watch this space .Google last week gave a preview to journalists and analysts to show how Android Pay works, using an Android handset to tap to buy coffee at Holborn Grind and to travel from Holborn Tube station.That might sound sensible if you re a risk-averse consumer or retailer; but fiddly and time-eating if you re someone who is always looking for ways to do things quicker.Normally the Oyster system that TfL uses just charges you for the maximum cost of a ride when this happens; but if you use Android Pay you ll now get a warning when you pass the machines to remind you if you forget.It s possibly a mark of how Google wanted to make sure it gets the experience right from the start, lest the public or regulators find any other reasons to scrutinize the company.

View photosMoreRepublican U.S. presidential candidate Donald Trump poses for a photo after an interview with Reuters in his office in Trump Tower, in the Manhattan borough of New York City, U.S., May 17, 2016.In a Reuters interview, the New York billionaire said technology start-ups that had never earned a profit were able to sell shares at very high prices, likening the situation to the overheated stock market in 2007."I'm talking about companies that have never made any money, that have a bad concept and that are valued at billions of dollars, so here we go again," Trump said.Some startup founders rejected Trump's generalization that all companies are burning cash and overvalued; certainly many of them are, and in the last several months a correction has started to rectify years of exuberant investments."So far he has been saying dumb things but they seem to be getting dumber and dumber," Vivek Wadhwa, an entrepreneur and Stanford University fellow, told Reuters."There is nothing in his Trump's track record to show that he has been out here and met with any technology leaders and knows this industry and knows about innovation," said Aaron Ginn, co-founder of the Lincoln Initiative, a community that promotes libertarian and technology-friendly values.

For investors in Taiwan s $841 billion stock market, Tim Cook matters more than Tsai Ing-wen.While the ascension of independence-leaning Tsai to the presidency on Friday has sparked concern relations with China will deteriorate, JPMorgan Asset Management and BlackRock Inc. say the bigger risk is the slowdown in the global smartphone business.Apple reported its first quarterly sales decline in 13 years, with Chief Executive Officer Cook acknowledging on April 26 that -- nine years after the iPhone s game-changing debut -- the market had stopped growing.Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. and Hon Hai Precision Industry Co. both reported falling profit last quarter.Investor confidence in Taiwan s stock market reflects "export demand, and by far the dominant export demand factor is electronics and Apple in particular," said Howard Wang, Hong Kong-based head of greater China for JPMorgan Asset Management, which managed $1.7 trillion as of March 31.Pegatron Corp., which assembles iPhones, missed profit expectations and said April sales dived 16 percent.TSMC, one of the largest manufacturers of the application processors that are a mobile device s brains --- cut its 2016 smartphone demand forecast in April.In March, Chinese President Xi Jinping vowed to "resolutely contain Taiwan independence secessionist activities in any form," a warning to Tsai s incoming government.The Communist Party considers the island a province, even though it has been governed separately for more than 66 years, and reserves the right to use force to prevent it from moving toward formal independence."Taiwan having a government that s uninterested in unification with China is nothing new," Chou said, referring to two former presidents who leaned toward independence.She will focus on economic and social issues."

The European Union, locked in a tax battle with the likes of Apple Inc. and McDonald s Corp., laid down the law in its bid to rein in governments that woo multinationals with special fiscal deals allowing them to reduce their fiscal liability by booking profits abroad.The European Commission, which can ban unfair tax advantages conferred to companies, outlined measures cutting member states ability to make rulings that lower the tax burden of foreign businesses.Thursday s publication, which sets out how the regulator will police state aid, sends a warning shot to corporations shifting profits, insisting that such transactions between subsidiaries should be based on market prices.Any deviation from the best estimate of a market-based outcome must be limited and proportionate, the document states.This applies to situations where there aren t any good comparable transactions in the real world given that profit-shifting can involve remunerating hard-to-quantify intellectual property rights held in a low-taxation country.The EU already showed its resolve last year when it ordered Starbucks Corp. to pay as much as 30 million euros $33 million in back taxes.The commission said a Dutch unit paid millions of euros to a U.K.-based arm of the company that isn t taxed in Britain in exchange for a technique to roast coffee beans.Exaggerated tax-deductible royalty payments for this technique allowed Seattle-based Starbucks to unfairly lower its Dutch taxes, it said.The new rules beef up the regulator s powers to limit the type of deals it s probing in Ireland concerning Apple and Luxembourg s arrangements with companies such as Amazon.com Inc. and McDonald s.The iPhone maker s tax agreements with Ireland were criticized as unfair by EU regulators who said the deals were improperly designed to give Apple a financial boost in exchange for jobs in the country.The methods used to determine profit allocation to two Irish units result from a negotiation rather than a pricing methodology, the EU regulator said at the time.All the companies and countries targeted by the EU have denied they broke any rules, raising the prospect of protracted legal challenges.Multinationals should stick with the guidance provided by the Organisation for Economic Co-Operation and Development on the arm s length principle in order to determine how to allocate profits, according to the EU rules.The OECD s guidelines on the matter capture the international consensus on a principle which is meant to ensure that, for tax purposes, transactions between subsidiaries are based on prices an unrelated company would pay, according to the rules.The OECD says such profit shifting costs the world as much as $240 billion a year in lost revenue.
Mary Jo White made the stark warning on cyber-security, or lack of it, at the Reuters Financial Regulation Summit over in Washington.As we go out there now, we are pointing that out."White also noted that the SEC is being active in reviewing cyber-security defences of the likes of brokers to ensure they are up to scratch.Bangladesh Bank suffered from woeful security and lacked basic measures such as a firewall, and also used bargain basement $10 switches in its internal networks, all of which made it a much easier target than it should have been – and also meant it was much more difficult to trace those who pulled off the online heist.Last week, global payments network Swift warned that a second bank had been hit by hackers using broadly the same tools and methods seen in the Bangladesh affair.Many more banks, particularly those in developing nations, are at risk according to Swift, and they need to be seriously looking at their security measures.
It was a passing, throwaway moment shared by Google CEO Sundar Pichai, a footnote to the home automation talk, the Android updates and VR noise close to the end of last night s Google I/O 2016 keynote, that had the most profound impact for me.Going Out On A LimbPicking up a selected object is not a particularly difficult task for a robot these days, on the condition that an adept coder lays out the parameters, and the details of what object needs grabbing and where it is placed don t deviate from what the confines of the code dictate.By virtue of being hooked up to a physical robotic arm analogous to our own fleshy ones, seeing the bot make a small gesture that was startlingly human in its execution, made me sit bolt upright – a little nudge of indifference towards the black stapler blocking its goal of moving the yellow brick.The physical realisation of that meh feeling you have that leads you to push desk clutter to one side, searching for the one working biro in a sea of crap.Google reckons that ll help you get hyped for whoever is calling down the line, giving a glimpse of what they re up to.Sci-fi sceptics for decades have been warning us of the hubris associated with handing over too much responsibility to AI helpers, the disastrous, self preservation tactics that could worst case scenario, natch ensue if a sentient computer realised that these fleshy mortals have fingers hovering over its plug.
