Wing is also launching a page to take suggestions on what might be most in demand to deliver by drone. This will be the company’s first attempt to spread its wings in Europe. It has run four separate trials co...
For many years now, cell phone chipmakers have been on a race to miniaturize 5G components in order to win the biggest market quota when the devices become available. That race is still on.

As one of the top telecommunications equipment companies, Qualcomm 5G antennas are expected to feature massively in early 5G smartphones. Qualcomm revealed QTM052 millimeter wave antennas (first Qualcomm 5G antennas) to the public earlier in July. The world’s f...
IDMvalidate has set the pace for how to provide instant ID authentication results for embassies, banks, cryptocurrency exchanges and other financial institutions who want to undergo a primary second-source verification. Seth Sewornu, the former head of the Ghana Police Visa and Document Fraud Unit, once met a man who tried to rent his passport. The detective had a valid UK visa, and the man offered him $1,300 because they looked alike. If Sewornua had leased his passport to the visa fraudster—he did not—it would not have caused much ...
You are doing a final editing of a presentation on your Smartphone which is to be delivered in next 5 minutes. Meanwhile, the device simply slips from your hands. Now either the presentation will happen or there is another burn on your pocket. Okay, this is something similar to watching a horror movie and you don’t want to start your Monday like this. Don’t worry, soon we may see no phones with broken screens, thanks to a German student named Philip Frenzel of the University of Aalen. He has designed an “airbag for Smartphone” as a p...

Google’s I/O developer conference is starting in just a few hours from now, and we expect that the company has by now packaged all it has in store to show us during the event at the Shoreline Amphitheater in Mountain View, California. With the various products and services provided by the tech giant in various tech industries, there’s a lot to see from tomorrow; a lot of surprises. However, before Google I/O 2018 dates in the month of May every year, we are able to decipher most of what Google has in store to present based on how it p...
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg on Tuesday at the company's F8 developer conference acknowledged that 2018 has been an "intense year" for the company. And many would agree with that statement, including the faithful Facebook users who would either accept that data scandal is part of social media standards or pretend that Cambridge Analytica which is now shutting down has willingly given up the credentials to seamlessly sway their political choices in the nearest future. Facebook unveiled several new features set to be included in its va...
We make use of the social networking sites on a daily basis. It brings to us new ideas and news from all across the globe. But it is also a fact that social media can never be trusted with whatever you read. We hate to admit that we too make use of the social networking sites more than we should but then at least we know (or we feel so) that we need to be more cautious than ever! Technology has taken over humans in a way that is shocking and mind-boggling. The internet then came into play and took over people’s lives in unimaginable ...

Technology can help us find a way to reduce physical impairments as much as possible. In the case of a hearing or speaking impairment, such people use a different medium of communication which is not understood by a majority of people. To curb this problem, two undergraduate students from the University of Washington have come up with...
