Geolocation fences will be deployed to avert unwanted local searchers
In 2014, the European Union’s highest court, the European Court of Justice (ECJ), ruled that Internet search engines like Google must be required to erase all webpage links to an individual’s search results in which personally identifiable information is deemed “inadequate” or “irrelevant” to a larger context of search inquiry. At first, the court order was only applicable to Google’s European Union-based search sites (see: Google.co.uk, Google.fr and Google.de, etc).
But Snapdragon 820 is still faster than A9 overall
Earlier this week, a hands-on performance comparison between Apple’s crown jewel of 2015, the iPhone 6S Plus, and Samsung’s crown jewel of 2016, the Galaxy S7 Edge, was uploaded to YouTube where real-world performance was tested side-by-side to see how fast each phone runs a sequence of various apps.
Open Compute Project (OCP) and NVMe compliant
In an effort to keep up with the ever-increasing high performance storage demands of datacenters and enterprise customers, Seagate has announced it will launch the world’s “fastest ever” solid state flash drive this summer with throughput performance of 10 gigabytes per second (GB/s), according to a new press release.

Requires iOS 8 and above
Over the past seven and a half years since the App Store launched in July 2008, Apple’s mobile application market has blossomed from a size of just 500 applications at launch to more than 1.5 million as of last month. Unfortunately, even with all of these apps readily available, the company has been reluctantly strict in allowing developers the ability to change application functionality with their own third-party enhancements. Until last summer, the process was mostly restricted to jailbroken iOS devices and there have been few app tweaks available for non-jailbroken devices, until now.
Named in "top 10 breakthrough technologies of 2016" by MIT
Recently, a team of computer scientists from the University of Washington have developed an ultra-ultra-low power, extremely energy efficient version of the ubiquitous Wi-Fi transmission technologies that most of us have come to welcomingly embrace over the past decade and a half. Dubbed “Passive Wi-Fi,” the new standard consumes nearly 10,000 times less power than current Wi-Fi components and triples battery life on a wide range low bit-rate devices at home and in the workplace.
Competition with Pine A64 project heats up
