Reliance on smartphones linked to lazy thinking


Reliance on smartphones linked to lazy thinking
Our smartphones help us find a phone number quickly, provide us with instant directions and recommend restaurants, but new research indicates that this convenience at our fingertips is making it easy for us to avoid thinking for ourselves.

Alleged HTC One M9 Plus photos make the rounds

Purported live photos of HTC One M9 Plus made the rounds online. The yet to be revealed handset is expected to be a version of One M9 with beefed up hardware.

The unannounced device sports similar design as the regular HTC One M9 save for its main camera unit. The latter’s cutout is circular as opposed to squarish in the One M9 that already debuted.

HTC One M9 Plus might debut with two different chipsets – a MediaTek MT6795 model could cater to the Chinese market, while a Snapdragon 810 version will be sold elsewhere. The rest of the device’s rumored specs include 5.2″ QHD display, fingerprint scanner, 3GB of RAM, and 32GB of expandable memory.

JDI outs WQHD LCD display with in-cell touch integration

Japan Display Inc. took the wraps off a WQHD (2560 x 1440 pixels) LCD display with in-cell touch integration. The high-end component is the first of its kind to enter mass production.

The newcomer will have a diagonal larger than five inches. It incorporates in-cell touch used in JDI’s “Pixel Eyes” technology. In-cell touch integration has been difficult to incorporate in high-resolution displays, so the new LCD panel is quite an engineering feat.

Viewing angles of the display will be larger than 160 degrees. Its surface luminance and NTSC ratio are 500cd/m2 and 85% respectively. The unit’s contrast ratio is 1500:1.

The component is certain to debut in a high-end smartphone at some point in the near future. JDI also made noise recently in a rumor about potential partnership with Apple.

Speaking in Code


Speaking in Code
Some version of the “future of poetry” has been happening at least since 1959, when Theo Lutz wrote poems using the programming controls of a Zuse Z22 computer. The connection between code and language goes back to its earliest inception. Code is language. It seems only natural that code should be, or would become, poetry.
