Apple has once again upped the ante with their latest version of Apple TV. To say that I love my current version of Apple TV would be an understatement. It’s TV a la carte at it’s finest, and with more networks joining the party (most recently CBS) I am likely to forgo traditional cable altogether.
For those you who aren’t familiar, Apple TV is a device, not a service, which allows you to watch TV through various apps (HBO NOW, Hulu, Netflix, etc.). You connect Apple TV to your TV through an HDMI, switch inputs to Apple TV and just like that you are accessing Web video and apps on your big screen TV.
The largest wind farm in the world has been given the green light in the UK. Wind power has grown rapidly in Britain in the past decade with the help of strong winds and suitable geography. This clean, sustainable energy source is currently producing 10 percent of Britain's energy needs.
In a recent statement this past Wednesday, offshore wind developer Dong Energy reported that a final decision had been made to construct the 1.2 gigawatts Hornsea Project One scheme off the coast of Yorkshire in northern England.
The massive development offshore is generating industry onshore. A factory is currently being developed in Hull, due to open in September, which will manufacture the enormous turbines. Energy went on to state that the development of Hornsea Project One will produce 2,000 jobs, and it will hire 300 employees once the project is complete.
Scheduled for completion by 2020, the colossal development would cross 407 square kilometers and use 174 wind turbines, each one 190 meters tall – almost twice the size of Big Ben or 10 Angels of the North.
This recent development places Britain on the glide path to meet pledges made at the World Climate Change Conference 2015 (COP21) to limit greenhouse gas emissions in Paris last year.
Recently we have seen our fair share of cynical analyst claims that Apple has reached its peak interest in exploring new and innovative mobile technologies. However, recent rumors suggest that Apple's desire to explore unique and enticing technologies remains as vigorous as ever. And why wouldn't they? Considering that the iPhone still accounts for the lion's share of Apple's quarterly revenue, it shouldn't come as any shock that a great deal of Apple's research and development has a decidedly iPhone-oriented approach.
Earlier this month, Bloomberg published an interesting article suggesting that Apple is working with partners to develop an entirely new wireless charging technology that may wind up in a new iPhone model as early as next year.
Granted, wireless charging isn't a new concept, but the report notes that Apple's wireless charging system will be a bit more elaborate and efficient as its implementation may establish the capability to charge devices at greater distances.
"Apple is exploring cutting-edge technologies that would allow iPhones and iPads to be powered from further away than the charging mats used with current smartphones," the report reads. "The iPhone maker is looking to overcome technical barriers including loss of power over distance with a decision on implementing the technology still being assessed…"
The question on everyone's mind is to exactly what degree does 'long-range' distance mean? In the past, Apple has published patent filings listing wireless charging technology capable of transferring power up to a distance of about 3 feet. In theory,we could charge our phones wirelessly while walking around the room.
Bloomberg reports that this rumored technology may see the light of day "as soon as next year." So it appears that we may have to wait until the iPhone 7s or iPhone 8 before Apple gets into the iPhone wireless charging game. As someone who is constantly forgetting to "plug in" to recharge this would be a welcomed addition to my iPhone. So come on Apple, the sooner, the better!
Anyone else out there excited about the possibility to enjoy wireless mobile charging? We'd love to hear your thoughts below.
This past week at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah, Samsung revealed plans to open a movie theatre in New York City aimed at creating high-quality virtual reality movies.
Other than offering the potential location for the theatre, the Korean tech giant hasn't offered any additional details. They believe that their New York City is the perfect location, as the marketing team currently located in the Samsung suite would be close enough to the new VR theatre to effectively advertise and promote the immersive stories Samsung will be creating.
During the festival, Samsung also announced a year-long partnership with the Sundance Institute, aimed at encouraging filmmakers to tell their stories. Chief marketing officer at Samsung USA, Marc Mathieu said, "At Samsung we love stories. And we love to help people tell stories." Currently, VR has a small audience but with corporations such as Samsung, Google and Apple poised to release products we are likely to see significant growth in the market.
We aren't likely to hear any details on the new VR theatre anytime soon. The process of creating a movie is long and involved, and one could assume that this process will be a bit more complicated with adding virtual reality into the mix. So for now, we are left to wonder if the VR movies will be exclusive to Samsung's VR products. Fingers crossed the New York City theatre is a success, providing the company incentive to open additional VR theatres around the world. Perhaps in the UK!
