NEW LG V20 SPECS LEAK SUGGESTS BEASTLY PERFORMANCE

Well perhaps, we can expect for the v20 to have better front camera(min. 8mp) wide angle as well and has longer battery life.

The LG V20 will be the next flagship phone from the South Korean manufacturer, with a confirmed September 6 launch date. Google has now stepped in and confirmed that the V20 will be the first phone to run Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box. Read below for LG V20 price, release date, specs and features.

LG V20 price and release date
New price and release date details for the LG V20 have emerged on Reddit. A redditor posted claims of inside information about the V20’s release on T-Mobile. According to the post, T-Mobile will begin accepting pre-orders on September 14, with a “likely” release date of September 23. The phone will reportedly cost $650. Other leaked details include three bonuses. The first is an extra battery and ‘enhanced hand grip’; bonus two is a memory module attachment, and the third is a year of Hulu and three Vudu rentals. The latter would be a T-Mobile exclusive.

LG has now set LG V20 release date. In a brief statement published on its site, the South Korean manufacturer will unveil the V20 on September 6 in San Francisco. The invitation posted with the announcement shows a pop-up booklet with the words ‘Play More’ scribbled over the top. This hints that the V20 could be the most versatile hardware offering from LG – an even more important device than the G5.

Windows 10 IoT Core Will Get BitLocker and Secure Boot For Additional Security

“I’ve been using bitlocker for some quite a while and I think this is a great news for those who want to add more security features in their PC. With growing cyber security threats, companies indeed has the responsibility to assure their customers.”

Owning to mounting cybersecurity concerns, Microsoft is beefing up security on Windows 10 IoT core, a lighter version of its operating system designed specifically to work with connected devices.

As a part of those added security measures, Microsoft is bringing in in-built BitLocker and SecureBoot integration. Microsoft’s BitLocker data encryption technology and its Secure Boot system for only supporting trusted software will both appear in in an upcoming release of the operating system, Microsoft announced today.

By building on Windows 10 IoT core with this newly announced beefed up security, you can get these highly valuable security features without needing to build your own implementations meaning you can get your project done faster and still be more secure.

With Windows 10 IoT Core being part of the Windows family, it already offers Universal Windows Platform’s (UWP) rich programming model and language support. Thats not it though. Microsoft says that it has seen “a great deal of enthusiasm” for using Node.js in IoT projects, and the company is hence investing to improve the experience for developers on IoT Core with a single installer for all Node.js components, support for the Node.js ‘Serial’ and ‘Cylon’ robotics framework libraries, and even a ‘Cylon’ project template for Visual Studio.

Additionally, based upon the feedback it has receieved, Microsoft is also bringing in support for pulse-width modulation (PWM) and analog-to-digital converters (ADC) via an integrated and extensible provider API, addressing issues around the USB HID class driver, and many bug fixes.

Also, owing to the popularity of the web-based device management interface with customers, Microsoft is continuing the investment in …

IBM’s Silicon Photonics Technology Ready to Speed up Cloud and Big Data Applications

“IBM has unveiled again a new leap in technology as it announced the IBM’s silicon photonics technology. Discover how this announcement could make a huge impact in businesses and datacenters today.”

 

Yorktown Heights, N.Y. – 12 May 2015: IBM (NYSE: IBM) today announced a significant milestone in the development of silicon photonics technology, which enables silicon chips to use pulses of light instead of electrical signals over wires to move data at rapid speeds and longer distances in future computing systems.

For the first time, IBM engineers have designed and tested a fully integrated wavelength multiplexed silicon photonics chip, which will soon enable manufacturing of 100 Gb/s optical transceivers. This will allow datacenters to offer greater data rates and bandwidth for cloud computing and Big Data applications.

“Making silicon photonics technology ready for widespread commercial use will help the semiconductor industry keep pace with ever-growing demands in computing power driven by Big Data and cloud services,” said Arvind Krishna, senior vice president and director of IBM Research. “Just as fiber optics revolutionized the telecommunications industry by speeding up the flow of data — bringing enormous benefits to consumers — we’re excited about the potential of replacing electric signals with pulses of light. This technology is designed to make future computing systems faster and more energy efficient, while enabling customers to capture insights from Big Data in real time.”

Silicon photonics uses tiny optical components to send light pulses to transfer large volumes of data at very high speed between computer chips in servers, large datacenters, and supercomputers, overcoming the limitations of congested data traffic and high-cost traditional interconnects. IBM’s breakthrough enables the integration of different optical components side-by-side with electrical circuits on a single silicon chip using sub-100nm semiconductor technology.

IBM’s silicon photonics chips uses four distinct colors of light travelling within an optical fiber, rather than traditional copper wiring, to transmit data in and around a computing system. In just one second, this new transceiver is estimated to be capable of digitally sharing 63 million tweets or six million images, or downloading an entire high-definition digital movie in just two seconds.

The technology industry is entering a new era of computing that requires IT systems and cloud computing services to process and analyze huge volumes of Big Data in real time, both within datacenters and particularly between cloud computing services. This requires that data be rapidly moved between system components without congestion. Silicon photonics greatly reduces data bottlenecks inside of systems and between computing components, improving response times and delivering faster insights from Big Data.

IBM’s new CMOS Integrated Nano-Photonics Technology will provide a cost-effective silicon photonics solution by combining the vital optical and electrical components, as well as structures enabling fiber packaging, on a single silicon chip. Manufacturing makes use of standard fabrication processes at a silicon chip foundry, making this technology ready for commercialization.

Silicon photonics technology leverages the unique properties of optical communications, which include transmission of high-speed data over kilometer-scale distances, and the ability to overlay multiple colors of light within a single optical fiber to multiply the data volume carried, all while maintaining low power consumption. These characteristics combine to enable rapid movement of data between computer chips and racks within servers, supercomputers, and large datacenters, in order to alleviate the limitations of congested data traffic produced by contemporary interconnect technologies.

Silicon photonics will transform future datacenters

By moving information via pulses of light through optical fibers, optical interconnects are an integral part of contemporary computing systems and next generation datacenters. Computer hardware components, whether a few centimeters or a few kilometers apart, can seamlessly and efficiently communicate with each other at high speeds using such interconnects. This disaggregated and flexible design of datacenters will help …
