Zipshare_screenshot
WinZip is known as the company that launched the file compression utility in the early 90′s, and they are still getting over 30 million downloads per year. That company is now moving to the cloud, and have announced ZipShare, a file management system that works with many of the major online file hosting platforms. ZipShare will not be another hosting platform – instead they are looking to launch as a platform that is more relevant to today’s world. WinZip launched version 17 in October 2012, and added support for cloud services in that version. ZipShare will allow for quick sharing...

Google_Glass_Titanium_Collection_Split_Frames
It seems that Google is lobbying officials in at least 3 different states to put a halt on the proposed restrictions to drivers wearing headsets such as Google Glass. A total of eight states are considering placing restrictions on wearing such headsets, and officials are concerned that some people may pay more attention to the tiny screen than the road. Wearable technology may represent the next big trend in technology, and Google has deployed a number of lobbyists to help persuade a number of officials in Illinois, Delaware and Missouri that the restricting the technology is not a necessary step....

T-Mobile_logo_100
Hop on board, the UnCarrier is about to take off. T-Mobile CEO John Legere has done a great job talking up the merits of his company in recent months, and it seems to be working. The re-branded mobile carrier was on a steep decline when Legere hopped on board, and he’s done an excellent job of turning the train around, as the company announced today that it added roughly 4.4 million customers in 2013. With its UnCarrier, Jump and Simple Choice programs, it has made things a whole lot easier for customers, and the numbers prove it. Although the company...

lg_homeboy_02
Yes, you read that right. LG has a product at MWC 2014 going by the name LG homeBoy. The device is an entertainment system for the LG G Pad 8.3. The rather large device will let you hook up your tablet and all sound from apps, including music, will be played through the speakers. Reports indicate they don’t sound half bad. Besides serving as a large external speaker for the LG G Pad 8.3, the device can be connected to a television to mirror content. Unlike a device like the Chromecast that forces all sound through the television, the homeBoy...

ATT-Mobile-Phone-Wireless-Logo-Store-Window
Today, AT&T is making it much more affordable for customers to text and call internationally from the United States.

The 35 countries includes Canada and Mexico, as well as a multitude of Latin American and Caribbean countries. This is clearly a response to T-Mobile, who cut international costs last year, and gave subscribers free texting and internet access internationally, as well...

Moto_G_Back_Camera_TA
The Moto X may have been Motorola’s most hyped device of the past year, but instead it’s the lower-end Moto G that has met the marks, and exceeded them. Motorola senior vice president of product management Rick Osterloh proclaimed that the Moto G “has been the most successful, highest-selling smartphone in Motorola’s history.” Osterloh went on to say that Motorola is making a profit on every sale, and that they will make even more once the Lenovo action is complete.

quixey_functional_search
Quixey, the search engine for applications, has announced the next step for its application. Rather than just locating apps that fit a search, Quixey will now go within an application and take you directly to where you need to be. Functional Search aims to list all of the information possible as to where the user would like to go. So as you can see in the image above, a Linkin Park search will bring up Spotify will suggest tracks or albums and other information that may be useful. The private beta for this feature will open next month and a...

xperia-tablet-z2
There’s good news for you prospective Xperia Z2 buyers. At a meeting today at the Mobile World Congress, Sony confirmed that their “fixed screen protectors,” also known as “anti-shatter film,” will not be used on the Xperia Z2 and Z2 tablet. Instead, the devices exteriors will just contain bare glass and metal. The previously used film had many problems, including their tendency to scratch and pick up fingerprints more easily than reinforced glass, which makes this news very welcome as Sony introduces their next generation of devices.

Samsung has announced today the next step for its Knox security suite. With Knox 2.0, apps no longer have to be run within Knox. Instead, many apps from the Google Play Store can now operate with Knox to secure app data. Samsung has also launched the Knox Marketplace — a cloud-based store that allows managers to remotely install apps on employee devices. So far, Box and GoToMeeting have joined the Knox Marketplace and Samsung says more companies are actively working on adding their apps. While the Galaxy S 5 ships with Knox 2.0, other Knox-ready devices will be upgraded when they...

GSMA_Global_Mobile_Awards_2014
Every year at Mobile World Congress, the GSMA holds the Global Mobile Awards, and this year was no exception. They have a slew of categories for devices, services, and apps. For best phone, it went to the HTC One unsurprisingly. Unfortunately winning in this category doesn’t always translate into sales or profits. Did an Android tablet get best tablet? Unfortunately not, as the Apple iPad Air grabbed that one. Again, unsurprisingly. What about innovation? The most innovative device manufacturer went to LG. AT&T also took best consumer mobile service. If you want to see all the awards, hit the break...

The world’s energy infrastructure — with its massive generating plants, mines, refineries, electric grids, and gas stations — is often likened to an aircraft carrier: Trying to change its direction is a slow and difficult process. But at times, such changes can take place with surprising rapidity, as some speakers pointed out at this year’s MIT Energy Conference.One stunning recent example, author Daniel Yergin said, has been the change in the natural gas industry with the twin technologies of horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing...

Since he was a graduate student, Armando Solar-Lezama, an associate professor in MIT’s Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, has been working on a programming language called Sketch, which allows programmers to simply omit some of the computational details of their code. Sketch then automatically fills in the gaps.If it’s fleshed out and made more user-friendly, Sketch could ultimately make life easier for software developers. But in the meantime, it’s proving its worth as the basis for other tools that exploit the mechanics of “program synthesis,” or automatic program generation. Recent projects at MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence...

Researchers have devised a way of making tiny holes of controllable size in sheets of graphene, a development that could lead to ultrathin filters for improved desalination or water purification.The team of researchers at MIT, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, and in Saudi Arabia succeeded in creating subnanoscale pores in a sheet of the one-atom-thick material, which is one of the strongest materials known. Their findings are published in the journal Nano Letters.The concept of using graphene, perforated by nanoscale pores, as a filter in desalination has been proposed and analyzed by other MIT researchers. The new work, led by graduate...

Cancer rates in developing nations have climbed sharply in recent years, and now account for 70 percent of cancer mortality worldwide. Early detection has been proven to improve outcomes, but screening approaches such as mammograms and colonoscopy, used in the developed world, are too costly to be implemented in settings with little medical infrastructure.   To address this gap, MIT engineers have developed a simple, cheap, paper test that could improve diagnosis rates and help people get treated earlier. The diagnostic, which works much like a pregnancy test, could reveal within minutes, based on a urine sample, whether a person has...

In a surprising new finding, researchers have discovered that bacterial movement is impeded in flowing water, enhancing the likelihood that the microbes will attach to surfaces. The new work could have implications for the study of marine ecosystems, and for our understanding of how infections take hold in medical devices.The findings, the result of microscopic analysis of bacteria inside microfluidic devices, were made by MIT postdoc Roberto Rusconi, former MIT postdoc Jeffrey Guasto (now an assistant professor of mechanical engineering at Tufts University), and Roman Stocker, an associate professor of civil and environmental engineering at MIT. Their results are published...

By the late 1990s, scientists had observed more than two decades of rapid global warming, and expected the warming trend to continue. Instead, despite continuing increases in greenhouse gas emissions, the Earth’s surface temperatures have remained nearly flat for the last 15 years. The International Panel on Climate Change verified this recent warming “hiatus” in its latest report.Researchers around the globe have been working to understand this puzzle — looking at heat going into the oceans, changes in wind patterns, and other factors to explain why temperatures have stayed nearly stable, while greenhouse gas concentrations have continued to rise. In...

Debates about the globalization of U.S.-based businesses date at least to the 1970s, but in recent years — following research such as MIT’s Production in the Innovation Economy project — there has been a sharp upswing of interest in promoting advanced manufacturing in the U.S. Now a new study by researchers at MIT and the University of California at Berkeley, supported by the National Science Foundation, aims to add to our empirical knowledge of the subject. Using a representative cross-section of U.S. organizations, the study looks at the prevalence of outsourcing and offshoring, and whether such activity tends to occur...

In 11th grade, when many high-school students are working on college applications, juggling extracurriculars, and taking multiple AP courses, Suan Tuang was doing the same. But at 16, Tuang was also striving to learn English, settle into a new home in a new country, and help his family navigate the financial straits of joblessness in the midst of the economic crisis.“As a family, we were really struggling,” Tuang says. “We thought maybe we made the wrong decision: How long was this going to last?”Tuang...
