Bell Labs celebrates net speed record over copper lines
Jul 09, 2014 - 10:55 PM - by ekim68
A team of researchers has announced it has transmitted data over traditional copper telephone lines at a record speed of 10 gigabits per second (Gbps).

Bell Labs said it used two pairs of 30m (98.4ft)-long standard phone cables to achieve the speed in its laboratory.

It suggested the tech could eventually be adapted to offer 1 Gbps in real-world uses.

That could reduce the amount of expensive fibre optic cable needed to boost internet speeds in cities.

This robot from Zuta Labs may change the way you print
Jul 03, 2014 - 7:24 PM - by TechSocial
The future of portable printing is rolling slowly across a piece of A4 paper on a hot Thursday afternoon in Jerusalem’s early summer. After what seems like an eternity compared to a standard inkjet device, the prototype creates seven characters with two spaces; the end result looks like it was spit out of an aging dot matrix printer.

“It’s slow,” Tuvia Elbaum, co-founder of Zuta Labs, says for about the third time after the printer finishes its work. And while it may be slow now, the idea driving this start-up is nonetheless engaging.

The Zuta Pocket Printer is not your typical boxy tabletop inkjet or even a miniaturized version of one. It’s a robot that’s a little smaller than a CD case, with four wheels and a printer cartridge currently tethered to an Arduino board.

Don't Sell Your Used Cellphone Until You Read This
Jul 08, 2014 - 11:14 PM - by ekim68
Does factory-resetting your smartphone delete all your embarrassing photos? Many people who resell or pass on their used smartphones use the built-in factory-reset feature to delete their personal info. But many studies, most recently by Prague-based security company Avast, have shown that a factory reset may not be enough.

In this study, Avast's experts bought 20 Android smartphones on eBay, some rooted and some not, which on the surface appeared to have been wiped of data and restored to factory settings. But by using some simple digital forensics tools, the experts were able to unearth everything from anime porn to nude selfies to sensitive financial data on these supposedly clean phones.

YouTube, following Netflix, is now publicly shaming internet providers for slow video
Jul 07, 2014 - 11:00 PM - by ekim68
When videos blur, buffer, or won’t play altogether, YouTube is now pinning the blame on your internet service provider.

“Experiencing interruptions?” reads the message in a blue bar underneath choppy video, as seen in the above screenshot. Clicking “find out why” brings you to Google’s new website, where it displays video playback quality for internet service providers (ISPs) in various countries. It’s like a report card for your delinquent ISP.
