  1. It's pretty hard to keep up with acquisitions in the tech world. A lot of companies change hands constantly, so it becomes very difficult to keep a track of everything that's happening. And in Apple's case, it's even more complex, because it's picking up companies all the time and Apple doesn't always tell the world when it buys another company. According to Tim Cook, Apple is always on the lookout for new companies. In fact, he told CNBC last week that Apple purchases a new company every two to three weeks on average. Yes, that's a lot of companies. © Reuters Cook noted that Apple bought between 20 to 25 companies in the last six months alone. Of course, not all of them are huge acquisitions. In fact, you might not even recognize some of the companies. But who's going to stop Apple from throwing all the money? It's said to be sitting on over $200 billion of cash after all. Anyway, here's a short list of companies Apple has acquired since November: · Laserlike · Stamplay · PullString · DataTiger · Platoon · Silk Labs Well, let's hope Apple will end up acquiring some good companies and come up with more innovative products for us consumers.

  2. 1st April a.k.a April Fool's Day has always been the day on which all brands try to put their best foot forward and lie to us for the sake of, well, comedy. You definitely shouldn't be believing what you see or hear on April Fool's day, but it's also the day that brings out the best in the tech space. Well, 2019 was no exception, and we got to see a lot of interesting stuff from big name companies. But here are the best April Fool's Day pranks, which we wish actually real: 1. Notifications That Literally Follow! Duolingo's pesky notifications bugging you every day to take your language test can get super annoying, which is why we're sure you end up ignoring them. But this April fool's day, the company took a step further by introducing the idea of having a large green owl appear in real life and follow you around to remind you to practice your language lessons. Heck, they even come in three modes - encouraging, disappointed, or passive aggressive - and it's downright hilarious. Check it out - 2. A Smart Assistant For Gaming? Sure. Nvidia also took it a step further by announcing a GeForce RTX smart assistant called R.O.N. The company claims it can give you cool tips when you play games like Apex Legends, telling you to hide, etc. R.O.N. can also use its brains to leave comments on sites like Reddit and Twitch for you. But be careful, R.O.N. can become a serious troll. The best part, however, has got to be the device itself, which throws a really cool holograph. Check it out - 3. RGB CPU, Anyone? Newegg's new CPU for April Fool's day makes us wonder - “How much RGB is too much RGB?” Seriously, the company showcased an RGB CPU for people who just can't have enough RGB in their life. It costs a hefty $4,999.99, and it comes with a whopping 100 cores and 200 threads. Its base clock is a supposed 1.4 Petahertz and overclock, well, if you overclock it, Newegg says you “might create a small black hole inside your CPU.” It's not something that we want, because the CPU will anyway be tucked inside a cooler, but it's a hilarious idea. Check it out here - 4. Do You Like Cup Noodles? Yes, that's what HyperX and Nissin came up with. Needs no explanation we suppose? They even claim that you can detach the fork and slurp some noodles while gaming. Sounds just about right. © HyperX - Noodles 5. Like Sharing Your Music? If you don't like HyperX's idea, then how about something more practical? Like this Jabra Earbud(dy) headphones, with which you can share the music that you're listening to. It apparently comes with an ultra-light headband that can be extended “seamlessly to accommodate the perfect fit for every pair of buddies.” © Jabra 6. An App Find Your Lost LEGO Bricks? LEGO's “Find My Brick”, as the name suggests, is a parody of Apple's Find My iPhone app. It will help you find your bricks for you in a pile of miscellaneous blocks. Image how simple your life would be with such an app, and that's exactly why we think this should actually be real. The long search is finally over... ð± #FindMyBrick pic.twitter.com/3yBIPJ2OPk — LEGO (@LEGO_Group) April 1, 2019 Well, that wraps our list of April Fool's pranks. Of course, there were countless other pranks by the likes of OnePlus, Razer, Tinder, etc., but these are the ones which we truly wished existed in real life, especially the Nvidia R.O.N. and LEGO app.
  3. Samsung has officially unveiled that Galaxy S10 in which there's also a 5G model for the upcoming services that will be rolled out in the U.S. soon. As 5G becomes more readily available, we will see more smartphones with new wireless tech including in phones from OnePlus and other manufacturers. © YouTube However, this is not enough for the U.S. President Donald Trump as he urged wireless carriers to deploy G and "6G" networks "as soon as possible,” What President Trump forgot to check was that 6G tech does not exist at the moment. "I want 5G, and even 6G, technology in the United States as soon as possible," Trump wrote on Twitter this morning. "It is far more powerful, faster, and smarter than the current standard. American companies must step up their efforts, or get left behind.” I want 5G, and even 6G, technology in the United States as soon as possible. It is far more powerful, faster, and smarter than the current standard. American companies must step up their efforts, or get left behind. There is no reason that we should be lagging behind on......... — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 21, 2019 In a second tweet, Trump said that 5G and 6G are "so obviously the future.” 5G is being rolled out sooner than expected and users on a 5G network can download an episode of Game of Thrones in minutes. 5G will also enable users to stream games from the cloud on their devices without any lag. 5G will also let users communicate with each other via 4K video. © BCCL Trump's tweet comes after concerns that Chinese companies like Huawei are ahead of US companies at developing 5G tech. However, Trump's demand for 6G technology is quite baffling as 6G doesn't even exist as a concept, not even in theory. 6G wireless technology, if it even exists, is years away from being implemented in real life. However, Trump's tweet me just be a subtle push for US companies to get a head start on 6G tech.
  4. In an attempt to show solidarity towards Huawei, companies in China are reportedly attempting to encourage employees to buy products from the Chinese giant. A Chinese textile company has released a notice banning staff who use iPhones from possible promotions and providing subsidies to those who buy Huawei devices. Several organisations and business groups in the country have issued notices urging staff members to show their support for the Chinese telecommunications giant by boycotting iPhones. © Reuters One company in Shenzhen, where Huawei is based, has even said that it will punish employees for buying iPhones. Menpad, which makes LCD displays and is one of Huawei's many suppliers, wrote in a statement on its website that “if employees buy an iPhone for themselves, the company will impose a 100 percent penalty on the basis of the phone's market price.” "So far, all members of the management team have changed their smartphones to Huawei models to show support for homegrown brands," a manager of Zhejiang Kangjiesi New Material Technology Co, based in Zhuji, East China's Zhejiang Province, surnamed Liu told the Global Times on Tuesday. © Reuters According to 9to5Mac, A Henan Province Brewer is offering free alcohol in the amount of 30 percent of the Huawei device sale price to both employees and customers who present a receipt. Xinjiang Nor-West Star Information Technology said in a statement they will only support Huawei, saying that it 'actively backs the calls to support Huawei and protect national brands with real action'. © Reuters Huawei's CFO Meng Wanzhou was arrested in Vancouver on December 1 on behalf of the U.S Government under claims the company violated U.S. sanctions against Iran. China and U.S.A are currently in the middle of a trade war after the Trump Administration threatened to apply tariffs on US$ 200 billion of goods imported from China. The U.S has accused Huawei of using a Hong Kong shell company to sell equipment to Iran in violation of US sanctions. It also says Meng and the tech company misled banks about its business dealings in Iran. © Reuters A Chinese court also recently ruled that Apple infringed on patents by Qualcomm, and moved to block sales of some models of the company's smartphone. Apple said it is appealing the ruling.
  5. In today's world, having a college degree is of utmost importance. It has become a bare minimum requirement in every industry, as many jobs demand a college degree even if they are not relevant. A degree has always been considered to be a milestone for a person, as it officially proves that you are educated and have a particular skill set. But Glassdoor recently released a list of 15 top employers that no longer require applicants to have a college degree. Companies like Google, Apple, IBM, and EY are all in this group. Companies are now inclined towards hiring candidates whose experience and skills best suit them for the job. © Google Google had acknowledged several years ago that college degrees are slowly becoming irrelevant and what matters most are skills. It is widely seen in India that a person, who has done an Engineering course, is ultimately working in the core banking sector, or is into business development or even marketing. This proves, that even though you have learned a particular subject very well and have a degree to prove the same, your skill sets may be pointing in the other direction. © Reuters Google's former SVP of People Operations Laszlo Bock as quoted in the report said, "When you look at people who don't go to school and make their way in the world, those are exceptional human beings. And we should do everything we can to find those people." The list of the 15 companies where you can apply and get selected without a college degree are- Google, Bank of America, Chipotle, Lowe's, IBM, Home Depot, Nordstrom, Starbucks, Apple, Publix, Hilton, Whole Foods, Costco Wholesale, Penguin Random House, Ernst and Young (EY), and Google. © Reuters Hold your horses though, this in no way means college degrees are worthless or a waste of time. For many people, a university is a place where they acquire skills employers value. And the people who do make it through without a degree are in very small numbers. What this ultimately means is, you need to have a proper skill set along with a degree to get past with ease. What's the use of having a degree if you can't survive in the real world?
  6. According to a report by our sister website ET, HTC is allegedly leaving the Indian smartphone market due to the stiff competition from its Chinese counterparts. According to the report, the top management of the company, including the country head Faisal Siddiqui, has resigned. © BCCL According to ET's sources, the company has asked the 70-80 member team to quit, apart from a few exceptions such as the Chief Financial Officer Rajeev Tayal. The company is also cancelling all distribution agreements in the country, as the company has stopped producing smartphones in India for over a year. One of the executives told ET, that HTC “plans to sell virtual reality devices online with Taiwan completely controlling Indian operation. This will be like an extremely small business.” © YouTube Other inside sources have said, that HTC may plan to re-enter the Indian market in the future as an online-only brand. HTC has been struggling as a brand globally, and it looks like the company won't make a return unless global revenues increase. A spokesperson from the company detailed that the company will continue to sell smartphones in India, and will invest in the country in the right segments at the right time. HTC has been unable to sway users to buy its products, as the company's sales have fallen by nearly 68% year-on-year. Reuters recently reported that the company plans to lay off 1,500 workers. © HTC According to Counterpoint Research, HTC has less than a 1% share in India and shares the same segment, which is currently being dominated by Apple, Samsung and OnePlus. HTC had seen success in the mid-segment in the Indian market, however, it wasn't able to compete with companies like Xiaomi, OnePlus, OPPO and Vivo. Did you ever own an HTC device or do you currently own one? How do you feel about HTC's exit?
