An internet pioneer is doubtful Mark Zuckerberg can refocus Facebook on privacy. Here's why. (FB)

Internet pioneer Paul Vixie is dubious about Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg's plan to create a "privacy focused" social networking platform. Vixie, the CEO of Farsight securities, has worked on privacy and security issues for decades. The concepts of "private" and "social" are fundamentally at odds, and no one yet has figured out a way to blend the two, he said. Facebook may be feeling constrained by Europe's new privacy law, which illustrates how difficult it can be to promote both privacy and ...

This smartphone maker put a selfie camera where no other phone maker has put one before

Chinese smartphone maker ZTE's upcoming smartphone has a selfie camera that sticks out from the main body of the phone. It's a novel design solution to avoid using the divisive notch that was popularized by Apple's iPhone X and adopted by numerous other Android phone makers.  Moving the selfie camera outside the main body of the phone has a few benefits, like allowing more space for a larger battery, and allowing for a full-screen display without interruptions from a notch. It does, however, l...

The Galaxy S10 is the better smartphone for taking photos compared to the iPhone XS, and it's clear what Apple needs to add to its next iPhone

The Samsung Galaxy S10 and Apple iPhone XS take nearly identical photos, so there's no specific winner for camera quality.  But Galaxy S10 users have an option that iPhone users don't: an ultrawide camera that captures a much wider field of view than a smartphone's regular camera. That option alone make the Galaxy S10 a better smartphone for taking photos.  It's pretty clear that if other phones are going to have an ultrawide camera, the next iPhone is going to need one.  I've finally had a c...
