Hololens: Getting Ready For Something Truly Amazing

Microsoft is releasing Hololens to developers in March and they should have their devices by month end. As part of the announcement they showcased some of the initial tools and games and this got me to thinking about the unusual things this device could enable. Games we’ve never thought to play before and uses that could be truly amazing. Let’s talk about some of these. Hololens + Kinect We’ve played games with Kinect where the Xbox can translate your body into a game controller and capture images but now think about playing games with the Xbox where you were also using an integrated Hololens...

The Dark Tetrad Of Trolling Traits: Are You A Troll?

What do deception, narcissism, psychopathy, and sadism have in common? Together, they form the “Dark Tetrad” — the killer combo of personality traits that psychologists believe may contribute to a person’s ability to enjoy inflicting mental and emotional pain on others. And when you’re online, that sense of everyday sadism contributes to Internet trolling. Internet trolling can take many forms. It can be tame, like a mean comment on a random article online. Or it can be completely sociopathic, such as when Martin Shkreli bumped up the price of a life-saving AIDS drug from $13.50 to $750...

At Mobile World Congress Panasonic Launches The Super Smartphone

I’m not talking about a phone that is super intelligent, that’s coming in a decade or so, but one that is super like Superman is super.

Apple vs. The FBI: Why Apple Is Screwed

Apple is in hot water because they are not responding to a Judge’s order to disable a core security feature in the iPhone in order to access data about the San Bernardino Shooters. This comes shortly after a Harvard Report indicating requests like this are stupid . Apple has taken a hard line with regard to customer security but it is hard to understand why, in this case, where the phone belongs to the local government and the owner is a dead terrorist why Apple isn’t stepping up. First Apple “probably” can do this but even they likely don’t know for sure and if they do it then it will...

The Birth Of Gigabit LTE: Your Next Phone Could Be Supercharged!

This week Qualcomm announced their X16 Modem which is intended to provide Gigabit wireless speeds likely making us wish we all had unlimited data plans again. This layers on top of their Mu-MIMO effort which is already showing up in some phones providing near Gigabit speeds over Wi-Fi. To give you a sense of the speed boost this is 10x the speed of the first LTE (4G) devices and 500x the speed of the first 3G devices and about 2x the speed of the fastest modems in market today. But what does this mean in terms of what you can do? Now be aware that this generally won’t show up in phones until...
