INDIA WEIGHS BAN ON PUBG AFTER DEATHS

INDIA WEIGHS BAN ON PUBG AFTER DEATHS

Electronics‎
A boy’s suicide this week in southern India after his mother scolded him for playing a popular online game has inflamed a national debate over whether the game should be banned. The 16-year-old’s father demanded a ban on PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, known by the acronym PUBG, after his son hanged himself from a ceiling fan at their Hyderabad home following a reprimand for wasting time online rather than studying for an English exam, according to Indian news reports. At the heart of the conflict in India is a cultural norm: Parents expect their children, many of whom live with them well into adulthood, to concentrate on academics and professional pursuits. And supporters of a ban say the game can be a deadly distraction. In March, two men in their twenties playing…

Amazon.com Inc is trying a new way to take its Alexa digital assistant mobile: wireless earbuds that mirror Apple Inc’s popular AirPods. The Seattle-based e-commerce giant is readying earbuds with built-in Alexa access for as early as the second half of this year, according to people with knowledge of the plans.

APPLE 2019 IPHONES LINEUP WITH BIGGER SCREENS AND BATTERIES

APPLE 2019 IPHONES LINEUP WITH BIGGER SCREENS AND BATTERIES

Gadgets
Apple’s next iPhone lineup could have bigger batteries, according to a research note from TF Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. In the note, Kuo says the successor to the iPhone XS could get a 20 to 25 per cent battery bump, and the 6.5-inch iPhone XS Max is expected to get a battery that’s expected to grow by 15 per cent. In case of the successor to the iPhone XR, Kuo expects the battery life should remain the same. The reason why Apple might pack bigger batteries to the 2019 iPhone line is that they could gain bilateral charging support. Simply put, the Cupertino company plans to add a reverse wireless charging feature to the next-generation iPhones. This feature allows the user to charge other devices (AirPods or Apple Watch, for…

SMARTPHONES INNOVATION IS ALL ABOUT CAMERAS AND IT IS GETTING BETTER

When Huawei launched the P30 Pro in Paris last week, there was one clear hero feature: the quad cameras on the back that can shoot 10x lossless zoom images. Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei Consumer Group, summed it up as a bid to deliver professional-level photography, “a new chapter in mobile photography”. While it might seem like a bold statement to make, DSLR-like picture quality on a smartphone is exactly what the industry is striving to achieve as its next goal. Innovation has maxed out in the smartphone segment and most devices across brands now have too much in common within a certain price band.
