Door Force Touch herkent het scherm hoe hard de gebruiker drukt, waardoor je bijvoorbeeld bij zacht en hard drukken een verschillende actie onderneemt. Denk bijvoorbeeld aan zacht drukken om een video normaal door te spoelen en hard drukken om een video snel door te spoelen. Force Touch is ook al beschikbaar in de trackpad van de nieuwe Macbook en het scherm van de Apple Watch.

De iPhone 6S en iPhone 6S Plus worden op 9 september in San Francisco gepresenteerd. Op de uitnodiging die Apple naar de pers heeft gestuurd, staat de slimme assistent Siri. "Hey Siri, give us a hint", zo schrijft Apple op de uitnodiging. Mogelijk presenteert Apple nog meer dan enkel de smartphones, zoals de nieuwe Apple TV, maar dit is vooralsnog onbekend.

Apple and IBM may be getting much more serious about cozying up to each other, to judge by a leaked internal video that hints at the possibility of IBM becoming Apple’s largest corporate MacBook customer.

 

The leaked video, which was shown on MacRumors, appears to show IBM CIO Jeff Smith recounting the story of a bar-side chat he had with Apple’s CIO Niall O’Connor about a potential deal to deploy 200,000 MacBooks at IBM.

The Square Kilometre Array: radio silence in Western Australia for most powerful telescope in history


On a former cattle farm in the remote outback, scientists are laying the ground for the biggest science project of the next 20 years: a radio telescope capable of picking out something like an airport radar on a planet in another solar system. Turn on your phone at your peril, because preserving radio quiet here is priority number one

Sourced through Scoop.it from: www.theguardian.com

The telescope will be perhaps 10,000 times more powerful than any we currently have, and we will need a supercomputer more advanced than anything yet built to analyse the data it produces. Right now we can spot planets circling around distant stars. The SKA will be able to spot the equivalent of an airport radar system on one of those very, very distant planets.

 

It will also allow us to dig down into the ancient history of our universe, and there’s no knowing what it will find there, or what it will mean for us.

 

On SKA’s website, there is a list of five things the telescope will look into, but as Dr John Morgan, a tall, cheerful astronomer from Curtin University, puts it: “You can guarantee that the thing that SKA will be remembered for – is not on that list. It’s going to be the thing you have not thought of. It’s the unknown unknown.”

The thing that SKA will be remembered for … is going to be the thing you have not thought of

Why Marketers Should Care About Snapchat


Not using Snapchat for your marketing yet? Here’s why you may want to consider it.

Sourced through Scoop.it from: www.inc.com

Snapchat has evolved from a solely photo-sharing platform to a content consumption platform with an increased focus on marketing and advertising. But exactly how large is the Snapchat audience? Compared to popular photo sharing platforms Snapchat, Whatsapp, Facebook, Instagram, and Flickr on the basis of number of photos shared per day, the current number of users, the age of each company, and photos shared per second, Snapchat came out on top despite being the youngest company (Photoworld). This data reveals that Snapchat’s 200 million and growing users share 8,796 photos per second–even more than WhatsApp, even though in comparison it is a much larger network.
