Nintendo Switch Will Not Play Wii U Discs and 3DS Cartridges

Nintendo Switch Will Not Play Wii U Discs and 3DS Cartridges: Nintendo

  • The Nintendo Switch may feature backwards compatibility digitally
  • There will be different bundles with various accessories for each region
  • There’s no confirmation if the device will play smartphone apps yet

 

With Nintendo revealing the Nintendo Switch console via a slick three minute video, more details about the console are slowly being made public. In conversation with Japanese website Famitsu and translated by Perfectly Nintendo, the company confirmed that you will not be able to play Wii U and 3DS games.

 

However the company was keen to state that this applies to physical copies of Wii U and 3DS titles. This could imply some form of backwards compatibility when the device is made available. Perhaps through it’s Virtual Console service. This makes the Nintendo Switch its first console not to support physical backwards compatibility since the GameCube.

In addition to this, the company claims it is not the successor to the Wii U, which old-timers would remember is what was said when it replaced the Game Boy Advance with the Nintendo DS. Furthermore, it will ship in Japan with the main unit, the Dock, the Joy Con detachable controllers (Left and Right), and nothing else. As for other inclusions such as the Joy Grip and the Pro Controller, Nintendo will make these known closer to launch. Each region can expect different bundles.

 

 

On being asked if the Nintendo Switch can play smartphone games due to the presence of a Tegra chip, it said that it could not answer that question right now.

In terms of battery life Nintendo confirmed that it was designed for users to play as long as possible and “comfortably” even if there is no access to a power outlet. Specifics on battery life will be shared later.

With the Nintendo Switch due in March 2017, you’d think that every detail would be laid bare. But with the company playing its cards close to its chest, it’s makes us wonder how close to completion it really is.

Are you picking up the Nintendo Switch at launch? Let us know in the comments.

 

Xiaomi Mi Note 2 Launch Confirmed for October 25

Xiaomi Mi Note 2 Launch Confirmed for October 25

  • The Mi Note 2 is one of the company’s most leaked smartphones this year
  • It is tipped to sport a dual edge display as well as dual rear camera set
  • The smartphone will be launched at an event in Beijing on Tuesday

Xiaomi on Friday confirmed it will be launching the Mi Note 2 flagship smartphone at a Beijing event on Tuesday, kicking off at 11:30am IST. The long rumoured phone has been leaked several times in the past few weeks, and, the company has now confirmed one of the biggest expectations – it will sport a curved or dual edge display.

In a tweet on Friday, Xiaomi said the Mi Note has been “curved to impress”. While this itself may leave some room for speculation, the company has very specifically added that the smartphone will feature “two-sided dual curves”. This all but confirms a dual edge curved display like the ones Samsung employs on the Galaxy S6 Edge and Galaxy S7 Edge.

The Mi Note 2 launch confirmation by Xiaomi follows a major leak from earlier this week that tipped pricing and specifications, all in the form of leaked presentation slides. The leak also tipped another much-rumoured feature – the presence of a dual rear camera setup similar to the one launched with the Mi 5s Plus last month. Also tipped is an iris scanner.

The leaked presentation slides reveal two models will be launched – 4GB of RAM/ 64GB of inbuilt storage at CNY 2,799 (roughly Rs. 27,800), and 6GB of RAM/ 128GB of storage at CNY 2,999 (roughly Rs. 29,800).

Other leaked specifications include a 5.7-inch Super Amoled (1440×2560 pixels) display with pressure sensitive technology – similar to the Xiaomi Mi 5s. It is said to be powered by a 64-bit Snapdragon 821 SoC, while the dual rear camera sensor is said to bear a 23-megapixel Sony IMX318 sensor and a 12-megapixel Sony IMX378 sensor. On the front is said to be an 8-megapixel sensor.

The Xiaomi Mi Note is also tipped to sport a 4100mAh battery with Quick Charge 3.0 technology, an ultrasonic fingerprint scanner embedded under glass, as well as 4G VoLTE , Bluetooth 4.1, WiFi 802.11 ac (2.4/5 GHz) MU-MIMO, GPS, NFC, and USB Type-C connectivity options. The smartphone is said to run Android 6.0 Marshmallow-based MIUI 8, and support dual-SIM slots (Nano + Nano).

 

Managing Your Sports Schedule Has Never Been Easier

Running a sports league can turn into hard work if the process isn’t organized and efficient. Fortunately, there are ways to automate parts of the process to make it easier for everyone involved.

Paper and Pen Leave Lots of Room For Error

Managing a sports league the old-fashioned way has plenty of shortcomings. First, it’s just a lot of work. Then there is room for error. There will always be someone complaining about their schedule, and there’s no way to know if the process was completely fair. Automated leagues using computer software take away a whole lot of the work and make it completely fair for each team and player.

Tracking Leagues is a Snap With Automation Software

Statistics can easily be tracked with league software. The statistics are simply input into the program where they can be accessed and processed in hundreds of ways. The data will be safe, and can be maintained for years. Performing tasks like this with pen and paper would be a major hassle, and most leagues don’t even consider it.

Scheduling is an Afterthought

Scheduling is probably the most difficult thing about running a sports league. Making sure everything is fair and square for all the teams involved while working around a myriad of other conflicts is a huge hassle for the commissioner, and it often creates ill feelings with the players and teams if they don’t feel like their team got a fair shake. The league scheduler function of league automation software makes this task go from a major headache to something that is basically taken for granted. The computer software figures out a schedule that works for everyone, and it is fair, because the software certainly has no agenda.

Manage Your League is one solution to all of your league automation needs. Not only is this software powerful for your needs, but they even provide a demo so you can see how it would work before you commit to the whole program. Basically, there’s no reason not to at least give it a shot. Make running a league a breeze with Manage Your League, and let the computer sweat the small stuff.

Artificial Intelligence Hub Opened at Cambridge University by Stephen Hawking

Artificial Intelligence Hub Opened at Cambridge University by Stephen Hawking
Professor Stephen Hawking on Wednesday opened a new artificial intelligence research centre at Britain’s Cambridge University.

The Leverhulme Centre for the Future of Intelligence (CFI) will delve into AI applications ranging from increasingly “smart” smartphones to robot surgeons and “Terminator” style military droids.

Funded by a £10 million ($12.3 million or roughly Rs. 82 crores) grant from the Leverhulme Trust, the centre’s express aim is to ensure AI is used to benefit humanity.

Opening the new centre, Hawking said it was not possible to predict what might be achieved with AI.

“Perhaps with the tools of this new technological revolution, we will be able to undo some of the damage done to the natural world by the last one – industrialisation.

“And surely we will aim to finally eradicate disease and poverty. Every aspect of our lives will be transformed.

“In short, success in creating AI could the biggest event in the history of our civilisation,” Hawking said.

The centre is a collaboration between the universities of Oxford, Cambridge, Imperial College London, and Berkeley, California.

It will bring together researchers from multiple disciplines to work with industry representatives and policymakers on projects ranging from regulation of autonomous weapons to the implications of AI for democracy.

“AI is hugely exciting. Its practical applications can help us to tackle important social problems, as well as easing many tasks in everyday life,” said Margaret Boden, a professor of cognitive sciences and consultant to the CFI.

The technology has led to major advances in “the sciences of mind and life”, she said, but, misused, also “presents grave dangers”.

“CFI aims to pre-empt these dangers, by guiding AI-development in human-friendly ways,” she added.

Fears of robots freeing themselves from their creators have inspired a host of films and literature – “2001: a Space Odyssey” to name but one.
Hawking warned technological developments also posed a risk to our civilisation.

“Alongside the benefits, AI will also bring dangers, like powerful autonomous weapons, or new ways for the few to oppress the many.

“It will bring disruption to our economy. And in the future, AI could develop a will of its own – a will that is in conflict with ours,” he said.

But catastrophic scenarios aside, the development of AI, which allows robots to execute almost all human tasks, directly threatens millions of jobs.

 

Freedom or destruction?
So will AI, which has already conquered man in the game of chess, ultimately leave humans on the sidelines?

“We don’t need to see AI as replacing us, but can see it as enhancing us: we will be able to make better decisions, on the basis of better evidence and better insights,” said Stephen Cave, director of the centre.

“AI will help us to learn about ourselves and our environment – and could, if managed well, be liberating.”

With this in mind, ethics will be one of the key fields of research of the CFI.

“It’s about how to ensure intelligent artificial systems have goals aligned with human values” and ensure computers don’t evolve spontaneously in “new, unwelcome directions”, Cave said.

“Before we delegate decisions in important areas, we need to be very sure that the intelligence systems to which we are delegating are sufficiently trustworthy.”

The opening of the research centre comes at a time when major international groups have competing ambitions in AI.

 

Google has integrated the technology in its new phone, Apple and Microsoft are proposing personal assistants, while Sony and Volkswagen have also invested in AI development.

T-Mobile Fined $48 Million for Slowing Down Unlimited Data Plans

T-Mobile Fined $48 Million for Slowing Down Unlimited Data Plans
Federal regulators are slapping T-Mobile with millions of dollars in fines and other requirements after consumers complained that the wireless carrier misled them with its advertising on “unlimited” data.

T-Mobile has agreed to pay $7.5 million (roughly Rs. 50 crores) to the government and to compensate affected consumers with $35.5 million (roughly Rs. 236 crores) worth of additional mobile data and discounts on phone accessories.

The federal probe, which began last year, targeted T-Mobile’s marketing of unlimited data plans. Unlike many phone plans with monthly data caps, unlimited data plans generally don’t charge overage fees when a customer uses too much data. But the FCC said Wednesday it had received hundreds of complaints about T-Mobile degrading the mobile data connections of its most data-hungry unlimited users.

“According to consumers, this policy rendered data services ‘unusable’ for many hours each day and substantially limited their access to data,” the FCC said. It added that T-Mobile didn’t do enough to tell its unlimited data customers that their plans, did, in fact, have some limits.

The news takes on even greater significance in light of the carrier’s efforts to promote unlimited data plans to all its customers. T-Mobile’s fine print states that the top three percent of data users will temporarily have their network usage de-prioritised – that is, kicked to the back of the line – when other customers are trying to use a heavily congested cell site.
The company didn’t respond to a request for comment. Under the terms of the settlement, T-Mobile will also have to provide at least $5 million in free tablets or other devices to children in low-income school districts, as well as free mobile data for their schools and families for four years. As many as 80,000 children are expected to benefit from the program, which begins next October, according to the FCC.

Federal regulators have taken a closer look at “unlimited” data plans and the surrounding marketing. Last year, the FCC proposed a $100 million fine for AT&T over the same issue.

Apple CEO Tim Cook Continues Japan Expedition With Shinzo Abe Meeting

Apple CEO Tim Cook Continues Japan Expedition With Shinzo Abe MeetingAmid sluggish iPhone sales around the world, Apple Inc. Chief Executive Officer Tim Cook is lavishing more attention on Japan, a country where his products still reign supreme.

A day after visiting Nintendo headquarters in Kyoto, Cook met with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in Tokyo on Friday. The two discussed Apple’s development centre in Yokohama, south of Tokyo, which is scheduled to open in December, according to Japan Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga.

“The drift of the conversation was about collaborating with Japanese firms on their new service,” Suga, who attended the meeting, told reporters afterwards. Abe responded that Apple should “cultivate even deeper ties with Japanese firms as we begin development at the new facility,” he added.

It was Cook’s first trip to Japan since taking the helm at the world’s biggest company by market value five years ago, according to a Facebook post from Japan’s Cabinet. During that period, he’s made several visits to Greater China – its biggest foreign market.

 
Apple’s devices accounted for 42 percent of Japan’s mobile market in 2015, the company’s fourth year as the country’s leading supplier, according to MM Research Institute Ltd. Within smartphones, its grip was even tighter at 53 percent. Apple also held the largest share of tablets in the country last year, accounting for 40 percent of the market, according to the researcher.

In recent years, Apple has lost ground in China to local competitors, raising the priority of maintaining its lead in Japan. Apple reported its first quarterly revenue contraction in more than a decade earlier this year.

HP Plans Up to 4,000 Job Cuts Over Three Years Amid PC Slump

HP Plans Up to 4,000 Job Cuts Over Three Years Amid PC Slump

  • The company will eliminate positions across the board
  • HP has about 50,000 employees now
  • Newest job cuts will generate cost savings of up to $300 million

HP Inc. plans to cut 3,000 to 4,000 jobs over the next three years to help bring costs in line with slumping demand in the market for personal computers and printers.

The company will eliminate positions across the board, Chief Executive Officer Dion Weisler said on Thursday. The comments came as HP held its analyst meeting in New York. The reductions could include about 1,000 jobs being outsourced if the number of positions edges close to 4,000, Chief Financial Officer Cathie Lesjak said.

Weisler is searching for additional ways to drive profitability after his PC company gained independence last year from Hewlett Packard Enterprise, which sells corporate tech gear. Earlier this year, Weisler saidHP would need to accelerate a plan announced in 2015 to eliminate about 3,000 positions over three years. Instead, those reductions are to be completed this fiscal year. HP has about 50,000 employees now.

 

“As technology improves and as we become a faster, nimbler company, you are always looking to become more and more efficient,” Weisler said in an interview. “Efficiency wins the day. And when I think about the markets that we’re in, what’s important is that we remember to stay focused on the reinvention, the innovation that we’re driving.”

The company’s shares slipped 1.8 percent in extended trading following the announcement. Earlier, they had fallen 1.3 percent to $15.15 at the close in New York. The stock has gained 28 percent this year.

Labor costs
HP said the newest job cuts will generate cost savings of about $200 million to $300 million (roughly Rs. 1,337 crores to Rs. 2,005 crores) annually starting in fiscal 2020. The Palo Alto, California-based computer maker expects to take $350 million to $500 million (roughly Rs. 2,340 crores to Rs. 3,343 crores) in charges in connection with the plan, and of that total about $200 million will be labor costs, according to a regulatory filing.

The company also gave a forecast for fiscal 2017. Lesjak said adjusted profit per share in the year that ends next October will be $1.55 to $1.65, compared with analysts’ average estimate of $1.61, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. HP also is boosting its planned quarterly dividend by 7 percent to 13 cents a share.
