samsung eyes bigger play in indian gaming industry


new delhi: eyeing a bigger play in the niche indian gaming market, samsung today launched its 'curved' gaming monitor, priced at rs 35,000 onwards. "gamers are demanding a nced display technologies in monitors in order to experience every nuance of the game. there is a need for better monitors for enhanced gaming experience in the country," samsung india director (ce b2b business) puneet sethi told reporters here. he said the launch of the curved gaming monitor is a step in that direction. samsung will compete with the likes of benq and asus, who also have a strong line-up of gaming monitors. to be available in two versions -- 24-inch display (rs 35,000) and 27-inch (rs 42,000), the monitors have a radius of 1800mm, providing an immersive experience to gamers. "the monitor comes with a ho






samsung will unveil something at mwc on february 26th


we're not sure what it shows, and your guess probably hinges on whether you think the mark in the center is a home on or a usb-c port. of course, this being the "mobile" event, and considering the devices already ruled out, it could be some new (albeit oddly-shaped) galaxy tab. whatever it is, you have a month to get your guesses in.

coin shuts down its payment services on february 28th


it's a quiet end, but you probably won't see too many people lamenting coin's fate. fitbit's upcoming payment-friendly smartwatch will likely be more convenient than pulling out a card. and even if you have no interest in fitbit's hardware, there just isn't as much desire for a tech-savvy card as there was when coin made its debut back in 2013. tap-to-pay technology has exploded in the years since then, and samsung pay can work at those stores that still depend on magnetic stripe readers. if you can just use your phone or watch, why bother reaching for a card in your wallet? coin was appealing for a while, but its moment has p ed.

mit demos smartwatch app that detects emotions


researchers tuka alhanai andmohammad mahdi gh emi built an algorithm that can analyze speech and tone. this data is crunched to work out what emotion a person is roughly feeling for every five second block of conver ion. in one example, a person is recalling a memory of their first day in school, and the algorithm can identify the moment the tone shifts from positive, through neutral, down to negative.the researchers used an iphone 5s to record the audio part of the conver ions, but made each test subject wear samsung's simband. that's the company's developer-only wearable platform that runs tizen and has space for various additional sensors. it's not the most elegant of implementations, but the pair have built the system with an eye on incorporating it inside a wearable device with no out

those invited, according to a reuters report, include google, netflix and airbnb. all four of the companies declined to comment on the meeting. kickstarter, box, adroll and twilio have voiced their interest in participating as well. amicus ("friend of the court") briefs are legal documents made by parties not directly involved in a litigation but have a strong interest in the matter. last year, for example, the tech industry rallied behind apple in its lawsuit against samsung and stridently opposed north carolina's inhumane hb2 legislation.the group hasn't specified in which cases the document could or would be filed. if it were to file such a brief, it would place the industry squarely in opposition of the administration. while silicon valley has made overtures to trump's team during the






apple posts all-time record revenue in india, technology news, ettech


apple ceo tim cook said the company posted all-time record revenue in india in the october-december quarter despite the demoneti ion move which created lot of economic pressure.the chief of the iconic us-based makers of iphone and ipads added the impact of demoneti ion has not worked its way and the company continues to place its long term bet in india.“it's still definitely having some overhang. but i think in the longer term, it's a great move, and i feel really good about how we're doing there. we are in discussions on a number of things, including retail stores, and fully intend to invest significantly in the country and believe it's a great place to be,” cook said.cook was addressing analysts during the company’s earnings calls on wednesday early morning.et was the first to report in






handset industry divided over pcb customs duty hike


new delhi: the customs duty increase proposed on populated printed circuit boards (pcbs) has divided the local handset industry. one section says it encourages local manufacturing and the other contends it disturbs the level playing field and benefits only samsung electronics, which manufactures over 90% of its devices locally. imposing the 2% special additional duty (sad) is a progressive step, said vikas jain, cofounder of micromax informatics. “it will enable long-term and serious handset manufacturers for setting bigger investments into play and thus provide the necessary impetus to ‘make in india’ initiative.” the duty increases costs nominally in the short term and will get mitigated when investments are made in manufacturing based on completely knocked down units, jain added. howev






facebook shows no sign of stopping, now has 1.86 billion users


those numbers are pretty good when you look at daily users too. the company reports that 1.23 billion people use facebook everyday, with 1.15 billion doing so from mobile devices. still, the growth is only up 3.91 percent from last quarter, which is slightly slower than the 4.67 percent reported a few months ago. also, while $8.8 billion is certainly a hefty amount, it'll lose around $500 million due to the zenimax lawsuit payout announced earlier today. for the whole of 2016, facebook made close to $27 billion, which is an increase of 57 percent from the previous year. much of the growth can be attributed to expansions of facebook properties like instagram, whatsapp and facebook messenger. ceo mark zuckerberg said on the earnings call that he continues to see video as a "mega trend" going






apple reversed its iphone slump. but what's next?, technology news, ettech


apple has snapped out of the first sales slump in the iphone's decade-long history, although the modest upturn doesn't mean that it has broken out of its innovation funk. if anything, the numbers apple released tuesday highlight the company's growing dependence on the iphone, whose sales tower above apple's other current offerings. the company hasn't managed to come up with another breakthrough product since its chief visionary, steve jobs, died in 2011. meanwhile, apple's rivals have been rolling out new products in other promising fields such as augmented reality, virtual reality and artificial intelligence.apple currently trails in those areas, although many analysts believe the company may try to catch up with products featuring those trendy technologies later this year.iphones on the

us is getting 5g network. will india's struggle with 3g ever end?


american telecommunication conglomerate at&t has unveiled its plans of introducing 5g network in two cities of the us. austin and indianapolis are the two lucky cities that are going to get at&t’s ‘5g evolution’ network, which the company is also calling ‘3.0 indigo’ or simply ‘indigo’. the aim is to achieve the theoretical speed of 400 megabytes per second over its wireless cellular network, a speed that is unheard of so far. though 5g is expected to run on a humongous of 1 gigabytes per second, indigo is a stepping stone in this direction as it plans to use the existing technology– hardware and software– to create a solid ground that would need little upgradations for sustaining the super speed that 5g is going to bring in.the world today is witnessing a shift in terms of the mod
