Telus Store Fort Saskatchewan Note 6 News & Rumors





Anticipation is starting to build around the Note 6 and what advances it will boast!  Here is something interesting from John Dye at Android Authority below:

Samsung just unveiled a 10nm 6GB RAM chip that may arrive on the Note 6

samsung galaxy note 5 review aa (30 of 32)

Yesterday Samsung showcased a 6GB RAM chip at a Mobile Solutions Form event in Shenzhen, China. While 6GB of RAM isn’t a totally new thing for smartphones, it’s definitely a spec that is far from mainstream, and what puts this chip above existing models is that it’s packed into a tiny 10nm form.

Although nothing has been confirmed by Samsung, some are theorizing that this 10nm 6GB LPDDR4 could power the Samsung Galaxy Note 6. Advances in processors and RAM chips are currently crucial to the evolution of mobile devices, because lithium ion battery technology is essentially at a standstill. While chips are still advancing in relative accordance with Moore’s Law, we need some kind of substantial battery breakthrough to be able to store power in a smaller, cost-efficient manner. Ergo, currently the best way to keep battery life in stride with more demanding components is to make high power chips smaller and more efficient. Not only does that leave more room in the device to be devoted to the battery, but it also assures that power will be used more efficiently.

Samsung Galaxy Note 6 specs

Details are scarce but a few leaks are giving us a look at what the Galaxy Note 6 may pack. According to the International Business Times, the upcoming phone is to feature a massive 5.8-inch screen with a QHD (2560×1440) display. What’s interesting is that this time Sammy might be doing away with the Diamond Pixels and instead has opt for a slimmer RGB matrix AMOLED panel.

Rumors of pressure sensitivity are also going around. This means the Samsung Galaxy Note 6 may feature something similar to Apple’s 3D Touch. The Samsung Galaxy Note series is known for its digital pen input features, so I would assume any new application of pressure sensitivity would somehow be linked to the S-Pen.

Apple was busy in the news today.  The biggest tibit was that Buffett snapped up 9.81 Millions Share of the Company obviously while the stock is down.  maybe you should too.  See the article by Neil Hughes at appleinsider below:

 

Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway buys $1B of Apple stock

Investor Warren Buffett has taken advantage of Apple’s lowest share price in years, as new filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission reveal Berkshire Hathaway now owns 9.81 million shares of the iPhone maker.

Shares of AAPL were up nearly 2 percent in premarket trading on Monday after investors learned of Buffett’s new stake. The shares, purchased as of March 31, are valued at about $1.07 billion, as noted byThe Wall Street Journal.

News of Buffett’s buy-in comes after activist investor Carl Icahn sold all of his shares in the company last month. Icahn said he still views Apple as a “great company,” but concerns over the Chinese economy and government led him to sell off his shares.

And last week it was revealed that David Tepper’s Appaloosa Management also sold its stake in Apple, dumping more than 1.26 million shares worth about $133 million.

Buffett’s stake in Apple is noteworthy because Berkshire Hathaway has traditionally avoided technology stocks. Berkshare also boosted its position in IBM, quarterly SEC filings reveal.

Though Buffett didn’t previously own shares in AAPL, he did weigh in on the company in 2013, saying he thought Apple Chief Executive Tim Cook should buy back more shares and build value. At the time, he compared buying back shares of Apple to purchasing a dollar valued at 80 cents.

Apple releases iTunes 12.4 with interface and navigation changes

In addition to releasing software updates across iOS, Mac, and watchOS, Apple today has released an update to iTunes. The update brings iTunes to version 12.4 and includes the design tweaks that were initially rumored earlier this month.

iTunes 12.4 introduces a variety of interface tweaks that Apple says make it easier to navigate the app and switch between different kinds of content. First off, there’s a new media picker that allows users to quickly switch between Music, Movies, TV shows, and more.

Perhaps most notably, there’s a persistent sidebar reminiscent of the old days of iTunes. This interface tweak makes it easier to switch between different categories of content, such as recently added, artists, albums, songs, and genres, Apple says.

The new sidebar also makes it easier to build and adjust Playlists, allowing you to easily drag and drop songs into Playlists. You can also edit the sidebar to show only your preferred views.

As expected, the Menus interface has also been simplified. You can use the View menu to customize your Library or to act on specific

This week I came across some articles you have to see.  We are slowly being over taken.  Read below the first article by Mike Campbell over at Appleinsider below:

Chinese Uber competitor Didi Chuxing, formerly Didi Kuaiti, on Thursday announced that Apple recently invested $1 billion to become the transportation network’s latest big-name strategic partner.

Apple’s massive funding contribution is the largest single investment Didi has received, reports Reuters. According to Apple CEO Tim Cook, the company hopes to gain insight on the sometimes complex Chinese market, an area of great importance to future growth.

“We are making the investment for a number of strategic reasons, including a chance to learn more about certain segments of the China market,” Cook said. “Of course, we believe it will deliver a strong return for our invested capital over time as well.”

The announcement was also reported by The Information’s Amir Efrati, who disclosed the development in a tweet earlier today.

Didi currently offers a variety of transportation services in China, including taxi and private car hailing, designated drivers and peer-to-peer products like ride-sharing. In February, The Wall Street Journalreported the Chinese firm was looking to raise a total of $1 billion from investors in a bid to compete against global ride sharing technology powerhouse Uber.

UK shows off prototype of digital iPhone driving license using Apple’s Wallet app

It looks like drivers in the UK could soon be able to store their driver’s license within Apple’s Wallet app on iPhones as CEO of the country’s Driver Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) today shared the image of the work in progress feature above.

 

Apple’s Wallet app on iOS is currently used to store Apple Pay credit cards and debit cards, as well things like boarding passes, tickets, and rewards cards. It appears that the UK government is working with Apple’s Wallet APIs to allow users to store their driver’s license alongside their other cards already in the app.

In a separate tweet, DVLA CEO Oliver Morley shared additional information noting that the app is currently only a prototype and that there is no timeline regarding availability. He also noted that the feature is not a replacement for a photo card but “an add-on” and that security is a main priority.

Development of the feature has been made possible by recent changes to laws for UK driving licenses that abolished the paper counterpart to the photo card last

If that doesn’t take the cake then dogs are checking out what’s the world coming to see what your best friend may do in the future below in an article by Jamie K White over at CNN below:

 

Dog runs away, checks himself into day care

The 5-year-old golden retriever loves it so much, he walked over a mile to get there. Unannounced.
The only problem was, Riley wasn’t supposed to be there.
He was supposed to be in the backyard of the Mostellers — where Tonia Mosteller left him when she went to run errands.

Meet Riley, a 5-year-old golden retriever, who LOVES daycare.

The great escape

The great escape happened last Friday in the small North Carolina town of Belmont.
Earlier that day, Mosteller and Riley ran into a group of dogs from the daycare during their morning walk.
“Riley was crying because he loves to play, he loves happy dogs,” Mosteller said.
He whined all the way home.
So, later, when Mosteller went off on her run, Riley lifted the latch on the backyard gate.
And just like that — he was daycare-bound.
“We walk Riley everyday, typically through town, and sometimes we will stop by the daycare,” Mosteller told CNN. “Riley knows his way around town.”

New Improvements so Your Mobile Phone Doesn’t go up in Flames!

 




We recently had one of our customers come into out store with a phone which had been plugged in charging on the kitchen counter and suddenly burst into flames.  “Lucky we were home when it happened” explained the very concerned customer.  The manufacturer which will remain nameless immediately replaced the phone under warranty.   I was extremely pleased when I saw this article by Igor Bonifacic over on Mobile Syrup.  See below;

 

Your HTC 10 or LG G5 won’t go up in flames if you use a USB-C cable to charge it, says Qualcomm

HTC10-5

USB Type-C ports may be the future, but that doesn’t mean this next-generation standard is free from growing pains.

The latest issue to pop up with the port involves the LG G5 and HTC 10. Some users have expressed concerns about the fact the two phones feature both USB-C and Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0

The worry is that this specific combination of standards may make the G5 and 10 fire hazards.

The answer, it turns out, is complicated.

Benson Leung, the same Google engineer who pointed out that the USB-C cables OnePlus used to sell on its website weren’t built to spec, says the two standards aren’t compatible with one another. The short and dirty version, according to Leung, is that the USB Type-C standard doesn’t allow the variable voltage trick Qualcomm QC 3.0 uses to top up devices in less than a hour. “Type-C Spec forbids it,” he says in a Google+ post.

Qualcomm, on the other hand, says HTC 10 and LG G5 owners don’t need to be worried. In a statement to Android Central, the processor manufacturer says the two standards are compatible.

The imminent launch of the HTC 10 with these added safety features is sure to win HTC a lot of customers.  Check out more info on this highly anticipated phone from a post by Patrick O’Rourke

HTC 10 review: Back to basics

HTC10-16

 

For HTC, the 10 is a return back to the basic concept of a smartphone.

It’s also a direct response to the heavy criticism the M9 received last year, likely encouraging the company to drop the M from its flagship line’s naming scheme, opting for a more eloquent and simple “10.” There’s no denying the release of the 10 has a lot riding on it with HTC struggling financially and Vive sales not predicted to skyrocket until virtual reality roots becomes more mainstream.

HTC is reportedly building Google’s next pair of Nexus smartphones, codenamed M1 and S1

HTC10-6

The world’s most prolific (and accurate) leaker has spoken: Google’s next pair of Nexus devices will be made by HTC.

In a tweet sent out just minutes ago, VentureBeat editor Evan Blass says HTC is making not one but two devices for Google’s vaunted Nexus program. The devices are reportedly codenamed M1 and S1, and will showcase the capabilities of Android N, Google’s next iteration of the Android mobile operating system.
