The founder of Blippar, which collapsed dramatically after a shareholder dispute, has a new augmented reality company

Ambarish Mitra, the founder of imploded startup Blippar, has registered a new augmented reality company. His previous company, Blippar, was an augmented reality startup that collapsed after struggling to raise further funding.

China reportedly made an app to show people if they're standing near someone in debt — a new part of its intrusive 'social credit' policy

A province in northern China developed an app that will tell users if they are within a 500-meter radius of someone who is in debt, state media said. It's called a "map of deadbeat debtors," the China Daily state-run newspaper reported. It hopes to get citizens to monitor the so-called debtors, and report them to authorities if they seem "capable of paying their debts." It's part of China's invasive "social credit" system, which aims to judge a person's trustworthiness. People have alre...

After my hard drive crashed and lost 3 months of work, I devised a foolproof backup system to protect myself in the future

I've made a lot of mistakes since I left New York to travel around the world as Business Insider's   international correspondent. By far the worst was when the external hard drive with all of my photos, videos, and interviews failed. When I returned home in September, I decided to find a foolproof method for backing up all my important data so I would never lose it again. I decided on three layers of backup security. I now back up everything to two highly reliable external hard drives and then...

The iPhone is reportedly going OLED-only in 2020

Apple could drop LCDs from the iPhone line next year, according to a new report from The Wall Street Journal. That interesting — if not altogether surprising — revelation in buried in a piece about a Japan supplier’s struggles in the wake of disappointing iPhone XR sales. The news, which comes courtesy of people familiar with the matter, makes sense, as prices for the display technology should drop, making it more attainable for more people. Whether Apple is giving up on the budget take on i...

MacBook Pro Stage Light Fault: Apple's Design Turns $6 Fix Into a $600 Nightmare

An anonymous reader shares a report: Some MacBook Pro owners have complained of a 'stage light' effect, where they see uneven backlighting at the bottom of the display. For some, the symptom is only the first stage, with the backlight failing altogether. iFixit says that it has identified the cause -- and the way in which Apple changed the design of the Touch Bar generation for the MacBook Pro turns what would otherwise be a $6 fix into a $600 nightmare. The problem, says the company, is caused ...

5 Ways to Build Your Business’s Brand

By Helen Cartright Many, many years ago a brand was defined by a logo, name, slogan or design that distinguished itself from other brands. Today, branding is a lot more complex and more important than ever. Why? Well, with Australia’s boom in small businesses (an increase of 3.1 per cent in 2017) you want your business to stand out among competitors. You can’t do this by simply driving leads. Potential customers are not going to know who you are so how can they trust you? Today, people are doing...

Apple is reportedly planning to change a key component of every iPhone lineup by 2020, and now one of its major suppliers is scrambling (AAPL)

Apple buys LCD screens for the iPhone XR, iPhone 8, and other models from Japan Display. But Apple is likely to cut out LCD screens from the iPhone lineup as soon as 2020, according to the Wall Street Journal. This has forced the Japanese government-owned Japan Display to seek a sale to Chinese and Taiwanese buyers. Since the first iPhone was launched in 2007, Apple has launched a new phone every year centered around a liquid crystal display, or LCD screen. In recent years, more expensive iPh...

Employees at some of Silicon Valley's most valuable startups tell us that fears of a recession are throwing ice water on their IPO dreams

2019 was supposed to be a blockbuster year for tech companies going public — but the volatility of the public markets is making some employees at IPO-bound tech companies nervous.  We spoke to a current employee at Uber and a current employee at Airbnb. Both companies are expected to hold their long-awaited IPOs this year.  The Uber employee says that there's a lot of anxiety within the company over the company's valuation — conflicting reports have said that Uber could go public with a market...

Apple Concedes That Qualcomm Was the Only 4G-Ready Chip Source

The admission on Jan. 18 by Matthias Sauer, Apple’s director of cellular systems architecture, is the kind of point Qualcomm will have to score in front of U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh as it continues its defense against antitrust allegations by the U.S. Federal Trade Commission. The government has charged it with using market dominance in smartphone chips to force phone makers to pay inflated patent licensing revenue. Sauer testified that Apple considered the likes of Ericsson, Broadcom and I...

What Do “7nm” and “10nm” Mean for CPUs, and Why Do They Matter?

archy13/Shuttertock CPUs are made using billions of tiny transistors, electrical gates that switch on and off to perform calculations. They take power to do this, and the smaller the transistor, the less power is required. “7nm” and “10nm” are measurements of the size of these transistors—“nm” being nanometers, a miniscule length—and are a useful metric for judging how powerful a particular CPU is. For reference, “10nm” is Intel’s new manufacturing process, set to debut in Q4 2019, and “7nm...

Canada blames US for Huawei CFO arrest backlash that left 2 citizens in Chinese prison and a 3rd on death row

Canada arrested Meng Wanzhou, the CFO of Chinese telcom giant Huawei, last month at the request of US authorities. Beijing subsequently detained two Canadians and put another on death row. Canada's ambassador to the US, David MacNaughton, blamed Washington for the backlash on Monday, in an interview with The Globe and Mail newspaper. He said the US "are the ones seeking to have the full force of American law brought against [Meng] and yet we are the ones who are paying the price." The US also ...

Apple’s 2020 iPhones said to adopt OLED display panels

Apple could drop LCD displays for its 2020 iPhones for the all-OLED line-up, according to a new report from the WSJ. This move would allow for more flexible handset design. However, this isn't the first time we are hearing such reports, but the new claim adds more weight to the speculation.  The new report suggests that Apple's LCD panel supplier Japan Display is seeking investor help that will put it on firmer ground before the switch to OLED-only iPhones takes place. This shift to OLED from...

I’m kicking myself for not buying an iPhone SE last weekend

Apple just started clearing out its stock of iPhone SE handsets – which launched back in March 2016 and discontinued last September – at $249 a pop (the 128GB version is listed at $299). It’s not exactly big news from Cupertino, but it is a hell of a good deal even in 2019, with a couple of caveats. Too bad it’s already sold out across the US. Let me explain why I’m bummed out. The SE is essentially an iPhone 6S fitted into the compact, beautifully designed body of the iPhone 5 from 2012. It’s o...

iBooks Wishlist

Hello, I was wondering if someone had the same issue as I have before heading to Apple's forums to further the research into the problem I have, which is : It looks like I have no more access to my iBooks wishlist.

Shoshana Zuboff discusses her new book, "Surveillance Capitalism"

Ever since academic Shoshana Zuboff coined the term "Surveillance Capitalism" in 2015, it's become a touchstone for the debate over commercial surveillance (we've cited it hundreds of times). This week, Zuboff published her (very thick) book on the subject, to excellent early notices; I haven't read it yet, but it's next on my list. Though I'm familiar with the general shape of Zuboff's argument, I'm really eager to get to grips with the specifics, and to see how it's evolved over the last ...
