first_imgTags:#Android#mobile#news The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technology No exact details on pricing or U.S. launch dates on either of these devices, but they will be coming to Asia and parts of Europe in March. And no, original Galaxy Tab owners, you won’t be receiving a Honeycomb upgrade – ever – due to hardware limitations.Oh yes, and there were some stats announced somewhere in between the orchestra and the awful videos. We were told Samsung sold 25 million smartphones and tablets during 2010, 10 million of which were Galaxy S smartphones. We were not told, however, how many Galaxy Tabs were sold. That’s because we don’t know, says Kim Titus, Samsung’s Head of PR for Mobile, when I asked him later on. The operators would have to tell us that, he said. Hmm. Other new enterprise features have been added, too, like Exchange ActiveSync (for Email, Contacts, Calendar + GAL searches) support for Cisco’s VPN, WebEx, and Mobile (VoIP) services. A partnership with Sybase brings mobile device management capabilities, and, says Samsung, the phone is the first Android device to offer on-device encryption.Galaxy Tab 10.1Then there was the “one more thing” – the next gen Galaxy Tab II that was meant to be a final pick-me-up after a long, and rather embarrassing collection of cheesy PR videos that featured in no particular order a “cold” boss who turned out to be a secret kitten rescuer, a senile grandma who uses her phone to remember poetry she thinks up while in her garden, a skateboarding kid whose phone helps me make friends in a new city and an Indian fashion designer who likes taking pictures of saris. No really, it was painful. YouTube it. I swear at one point I thought the execs were actually messing with us, an audience of tech press, many of whom were operating off one hour’s sleep (*cough, cough*), especially when they came out at the end of each video and asked, “Now, wasn’t that wonderful?” I was sure that this was, in fact, some form of parody.In any event, the Galaxy Tab 10.1’s reveal was also as expected, except for the name – it’s actually the Galaxy Tab 10.1, not the Galaxy Tab II as previously thought. Its name refers to the screen size, of course. It also has a Tegra 2 processor, 8 megapixel camera, support for HD playback and recording (Full HD, 1080p) and will come in both 16 GB and 32 GB sizes. It will also run Android 3.0 (“Honeycomb”). What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … Just ahead of the official start of Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Samsung held its own press conference where it announced the second generation of two of its high-profile devices: the Samsung Galaxy S II smartphone and the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet computer. Neither launch was much of a surprise, considering the news had leaked online days in advance…right down to screenshots and specs. Nevertheless, Samsung still tried to pull its own variation of Apple’s “one more thing” and the end of an over-long conference in order to reveal its newest tablet.Samsung started its press conference talking stats associated with the original Galaxy S. Actually, scratch that – this is Samsung, after all – the same company that brought you “Zoll” during CES. (If you don’t know what that’s all about, check out Engadget’s archive for details of one of the most bizarre press conferences ever.) No, Samsung didn’t start with stats. It started the press conference with a live performance from an orchestra, violins and everything.  This was a show!It was also a bad sign, as it turned out. But we’re not going to review Samsung’s performance at the event (well, maybe a little) – we’re here to talk new toys.Galaxy S IIThe Samsung Galaxy S II, is the second generation of the popular Android smartphone from this manufacturer and this time around, the specs are beefed up a little.The new version will have a 4.3″ Super AMOLED Plus screen, 8 megapixel camera and 2 megapixel front-facing camera, support for 1080p video, a dual core processor, an improved 1650 mAh battery, support for HSPA+ and a lighter (116 grams), slimmer (849 mm) form factor. It will run Google Android 2.3 (“Gingerbread”) and some models will be sold with NFC built in. NFC, or near field communication, is an emerging technology that will be used in mobile payment systems designed by operators, banks and maybe even Google itself. Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagementcenter_img On the software side, the phone will offer four Samsung branded apps – “Hubs” as they’re called – one for Music, one for Games, a Social Hub for keeping up with your friends and an iBooks-like Readers Hub that will feature “2.2 million books and novels, 2,000 global and local newspapers in 49 languages and 2,300 popular magazines in 22 languages,” according to Samsung’s announcement. sarah perez Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces It’s unclear whether or not the Samsung Hubs and the experiences they offer will come downstream to the original Samsung Galaxy S phones – and the execs I talked to weren’t sure either. One even told me that there’s not a single answer to that question, because the content varies by region. (In other words, Galaxy S I owners, don’t hold your breath.)Another new feature called Samsung Live Panel offers a new take on customizable homescreen widgets that can also feature Web content, content from apps, and messages. Plus, Samsung’s Kies Air software has been updated so you can sync your phones on Windows PCs without having to tether it to the computer via USB cable – the syncing occurs over-the-air.

first_imgTaking their new-found friendship ahead, the Samajwadi Party on Wednesday decided to extend support to a BSP candidate in the upcoming Legislative Council polls while fielding its own candidate on the other seat.‘The Samajwadi Party will field its candidate on one seat while extending support to the BSP on the other seat for the Legislative Council,” SP spokesman Rajendra Chaudhary said.The election to 13 seats of the Council will be held on April 26 and the counting of votes will take place the same day.To ensure victory, a candidate needs 29 first-preference votes and arithmetically, the BJP and its allies are likely to win 11 out of 13 seats comfortably and still be left with five additional votes while the Opposition parties can get only two seats.In the 100-member U.P. Legislative Council, the BJP has just 13 members. The Samajwadi Party has 61 members, the BSP nine, the Congress two, the RLD one and others 12.Asked whether this decision was taken to compensate for the BSP support in the recent Lok Sabha bypolls in Gorakhpur and Phulpur which the SP wrested from the BJP, Mr. Chaudhary said: “Despite all efforts by our party, the BSP could not win the Rajya Sabha election because of the BJP’s gimmicks. The SP wants to ensure that one candidate of the BSP reaches the Legislative Council.”The SP-BSP combine struck gold in the ‘saffron’ bastion of Gorakhpur, associated with Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, and Phulpur, earlier represented by his deputy Keshav Prasad Maurya in the bypolls.The tenures of 13 MLCs, including SP national president Akhilesh Yadav and two Ministers in the Yogi Adityanath government — Mahendra Kumar Singh and Mohsin Raza — will end on May 5.Of the 13 seats falling vacant, seven are held by the SP, two each by the BJP and the BSP, and one by the RLD. The 13th seat is held by former SP minister Ambika Chaudhary. His seat fell vacant after he switched over from the SP to the BSP.Though the BJP and its allies have 324 MLAs in the 403-member State Assembly, it may not get the required strength in the Upper House to get Bills passed even after winning 11 of the 13 seats.During the winter session of the State legislature last year, the Aditynanath government had failed to ensure the passage of the Uttar Pradesh Control of Organised Crime Bill in the Upper House.last_img read more

first_imgOTTAWA — The United Nations is pushing back against restrictions Canada wants to put on the use of a military transport plane it promised to deploy in Africa.Prime Minister Justin Trudeau first announced in November 2017 that Canada would send a C-130 Hercules to Uganda as part of a larger package of pledges to the UN.However, the plan has run into numerous snags as Canadian, Ugandan and UN officials have wrangled for more than a year over the details.One UN official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because of diplomatic sensitivities, says Canada recently provided a list of conditions about where and when the plane can be used, including that the plane could only be used in daylight.The UN says the restrictions are too broad and won’t meet the organization’s needs.Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan’s spokesman Todd Lane says Canada and the UN are continuing to talk about how to fulfil the government’s promise to provide the aircraft.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

first_imgOTTAWA – When Sen. Patrick Toomey looks at the future of the ketchup market in his home state of Pennsylvania, he sees real blood on the floor.On Sunday, Canada’s $16.6-billion worth of retaliatory tariffs on dozens of U.S. products is set to kick in — the country’s answer to the crushing steel and aluminum tariffs imposed by the Trump administration.Ketchup is on Canada’s hit list, and that has Toomey worried because Kraft Heinz is headquartered in Pennsylvania. Four years after the company shuttered its operation in Leamington, Ont., killing 750 Canadian jobs, Toomey — a Republican — fears the doors closing to workers in his state.“We’re seeing the threat to their jobs,” Toomey told U.S. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross during his recent testimony before the Senate.“I’m really concerned about the retaliation, which hasn’t even really started to hit us yet. But it’s going to hit the people who make Kraft and Heinz products.”The impact of Canada’s reprisal will hit far and wide — beyond ketchup, beyond Pennsylvania, beyond its Rust Belt neighbours to other Trump-friendly Republican states in the Midwest and the south, according to an analysis of U.S. northbound exports by The Canadian Press.Canadian duties will leave dents on Democratic states, like New York, Washington and Illinois, say federal government numbers based on data obtained from Statistics Canada and the U.S. Census Bureau.Shortly after Trump announced the tariffs, the Trudeau government threatened to levy a 10-per-cent surtax on dozens and dozens of American consumer goods — unless the U.S. backed down.Washington has shown no signs of budging, so the Canadian retaliation is set to begin Sunday, which is also Canada Day. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will mark Canada’s birthday with visits to two locations on the front line of the trade dispute.One of Trudeau’s stops will be a big steel refiner in Regina. The other is the major canning and food processing operation in Leamington that was abandoned by Heinz.Ottawa released its finalized list of targeted products Friday — and the impact will not be negligible.In 2017, Canada imported nearly $4 billion worth of those goods from Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin and Illinois alone.Ohio, the bellwether state that almost always determines who wins the presidency, is likely to be the hardest hit. It exported about $1.3 billion worth of goods to Canada last year.The state is the leading exporter of a wide variety of goods to Canada that will likely face tariffs. Based on 2017 figures, the list includes: washing machines ($131 million); toilet paper ($91 million); organic face wash ($100 million); lawn mowers ($83 million); candles ($40 million); room deodorizers ($27.5 million); and glue ($23 million).“Ohio, as you know, is disproportionately hit. We’re hit harder than any other state by the Canadian retaliatory tariffs,” Sen. Rob Portman, a Republican, recently told the Senate finance committee.But there is plenty of other pain to go around.Of the listed items, Canada imported almost $158 million in Florida orange juice in 2017; almost $200 million in coffee from Washington state; about $176 million worth of toilet paper from Wisconsin and Ohio combined; and $84 million worth of herbicides from Michigan.Compared to its original tariff list released May 31, Ottawa removed only a handful of items. Beer kegs, prepared mustard and thermostats were among those struck from Friday’s final list.Taking a closer look at ketchup, Pennsylvania leads all U.S. states in exports to Canada with $81 million in 2017. The state’s sales to Canada more than doubled from $45 million to more than $100 million in 2015 — the year after Kraft Heinz pulled out of Leamington.Since 1994 with the arrival of the North American Free Trade Agreement, Kraft Heinz says it has developed supply chains that allow the condiment to cross the continent, including into Mexico.Av Maharaj, vice president of corporate and legal affairs at Kraft Heinz Canada, told The Canadian Press that the company is “obviously disappointed” by the escalating trade fight. He insists the tariffs could deliver a big financial hit to the company because it earns $2 billion per year in Canada.“We have a very integrated supply chain at work that runs across North America and we don’t believe the tariffs imposed by Mr. Trump or the Canadian government are helpful for business,” Maharaj said in an interview.“We are just now getting a handle on it, but I can tell you that the implication of the tariffs will be millions, potentially millions of dollars, if we do nothing and so we are obviously reaching out on both sides of the border and trying to figure out what we can do from a supply chain perspective to minimize the effects.”Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin all went to Trump in 2016 by tight margins. Those states are among those that will feel the sting of Canada’s tariffs the most.The Trudeau government insists it has carefully assessed where to place its countermeasure bull’s-eyes.As she released the finalized list Friday, Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland said that, where possible, the government has sought to put products on the list that can be easily sourced from either Canadian or non-U.S. suppliers.“Canada has no choice but to retaliate with a measured, perfectly reciprocal, dollar-for-dollar response — and that is what we are doing,” Freeland said in a statement accompanying her announcement at a steel factory in Hamilton.“The solution for this unprecedented dispute is for the United States to rescind its tariffs on Canadian steel and aluminum.”U.S. President Donald Trump used a trip to Wisconsin last year to attack Canada’s supply-managed dairy industry, accusing it of putting American farmers out of work.In Wisconsin, Ottawa’s countermeasures are set to target a broad range of other important exports shipped to Canada. They include handkerchiefs, paper towels, serviettes and tablecloths ($224 million), toilet paper ($84.5 million), mayonnaise, salad dressing and mixed condiments ($72 million) and upholstered wood-framed seats ($66 million).Ottawa’s preliminary list also included prepared and preserved cucumbers and gherkins, which will impose tariffs on imports from Wisconsin that totalled $38 million last year and nearly $23 million from Michigan.On the Michigan shores of Lake Huron, the president of family-run Gielow Pickles Inc. in Lexington says about 15 per cent of his business activity involves buying and selling cucumbers and pickles with partners in Canada.He’s ready to absorb the tariff increases himself, if necessary. But Gielow is hoping for a quick resolution to the dispute.“It won’t affect the bottom line for Gielow Pickles — it will come out of my pocket,” said Doug Gielow, whose company motto is “Fifth Generation Pickle People.”“When my pocket’s empty, I’m going to have to pass it on… If you looked through my pocket, you’ll see it isn’t that full.”— with a file from Tara Deschamps in Torontolast_img read more

Earning millions of dollars and national recognition as professional football players might make some forget where they came from and how they got to where they are, but Malcolm Jenkins and James Laurinaitis don’t fall under that category. Jenkins and Laurinaitis were invited by RealLife, a Christian student organization at Ohio State, to speak Thursday night at its weekly meeting in Independence Hall. The two discussed some football but also their relationships with God and the lessons He has taught them during their journeys to become NFL stars. “I got to Ohio State as a 17-year-old freshman, so you can only imagine where that went from there,” said Jenkins, current defensive back for the New Orleans Saints. “I kind of forgot about God, really.” Jenkins said he wasn’t living a Christian lifestyle when he first arrived, but it all changed one night when former OSU teammate Antonio Smith read a Bible story to some of his teammates. “What really changed my life around was when one of my teammates did a chapel the night before one of our games,” Jenkins said. “I began really living for (God) and seeking Him.” Jenkins and Laurinaitis, who now plays for the St. Louis Rams, talked about how their religious beliefs helped lead them to the right places in their professional careers, though they admitted they weren’t excited when they were drafted by their current teams. Laurinaitis was considered a top prospect for the NFL after his junior season. He was all but a lock to be a top 10 pick in the annual NFL draft, which would have earned him a multimillion-dollar contract. Laurinaitis said he pondered the matter and left much of his decision on whether to go pro or stay at OSU to prayer. “I felt that God was telling me, ‘You have more to do at Ohio State,’” he said. And so Laurinaitis returned for another season of donning scarlet and gray on Saturday afternoons. But after another impressive season, Laurinaitis wasn’t quite as big of a prospect after his senior year, though he said he felt like it was just as good as his previous year. The draft came around, and he didn’t go in the top 10. He didn’t even go in the first round. He fell to the second round, where St. Louis took him with the 35th overall pick, a spot he wasn’t satisfied with. “I had a lot of prayers and conversations with God, where I was just like ‘Why? What did I do to deserve this?’” Laurinaitis said of how his draft stock fell. But as Laurinaitis arrived and began to settle in St. Louis, he said, he came to the realization that this was the way God meant for it to be. “Now that I look back, it was such a blessing that I went 35th,” he said. “Just have faith that God is going to take care of you. He used something that I looked at, at the time, as something terrible that was happening in my life and turned it into an unbelievable lesson.” Jenkins said he also had to remember that, regardless of his stature as an athlete, his purpose in life was to serve God. “When I was going to the league, people were saying: ‘You don’t want to be a Chad Johnson or a T.O. Are you going to change your last name to dos and … whatever else?’” Jenkins said, drawing laughter from the crowd. “You are no more important than me, and I am no more important than you. We all have our own responsibilities and purposes.” During their time at OSU, Jenkins and Laurinaitis were affiliated with Athletes in Action, a sector of RealLife. When RealLife reached out to the two NFL stars, they were happy to speak to at the organization’s weekly meeting. “They’re superstars in the world’s eyes, but at the same time, they’re still humble,” said Jacob Beach, vice president of RealLife. “You ask either of them, and the most important thing in their lives is their relationship with Jesus Christ.” And that was the message the former Buckeye football stars wanted to push across Thursday night. “If you leave here tonight knowing about Jesus Christ and want to go back and crack open your Bible and just kind of learn about him, then that’s great,” Laurinaitis said. “That’s why we do this.” read more

The Ohio State men’s soccer team (5-7-5, 1-3-2) earned the sixth seed in the Big Ten Tournament after falling, 2-0, to No. 16 Wisconsin in the team’s regular season finale Friday. The loss on the Badgers’ senior night snapped a five-game unbeaten streak for the Buckeyes, who finished the regular season winning three of their last four matches.Buckeye coach John Bluem said he hopes the team learned that it needs to match the physical intensity of its opponents if it wants to play and get a win.“They physically dominated us, they were more aggressive than we were and they played harder than we played,” he said. “In most of the games this year, especially when we started playing better, it’s when we started matching the other team’s physical aggressiveness.”Although the Buckeyes began the match aggressive, taking the first shot and forcing the first three corner kick opportunities, a first-half goal by the Badgers (13-3-2, 4-2-0) halted Buckeye redshirt-junior goalkeeper Alex Ivanov’s four-game, 445-minute spell of not allowing a goal. The goal came in the 23rd minute of play when Wisconsin redshirt-senior midfielder Tomislav Zadro scored off a diving header from the far post, after connecting with Badger sophomore midfielder Drew Connor. The goal was Zadro’s fourth of the season.The Buckeyes tried to fight back, firing two shots of their own in the following six minutes, but were unable to find the back of the net. At the half, the Badgers had outshot the Buckeyes, 6-5.The Badgers added to their lead with a second-half goal midway through the 71st minute. Badger senior forward Nick Janus finished off a knockdown from an OSU defender, squeaking it past Ivanov into the right side of the net. The goal gave the Badgers a 2-0 cushion, eventually leading to the victory.Despite leaving Madison, Wis., with a loss, Ivanov said the team was able to learn some last-minute things about itself before heading into the conference tournament.“I think we learned that obviously, when we’re sharper than that, we usually play a lot better than we did,” Ivanov said. “We didn’t have that extra fiery edge that we usually do, and we all know collectively that we’re better than the performance we had.”Buckeye senior defender Sage Gardner said the way the team prepared for Wisconsin proves to him that the team can play at the same level of play as any team in the conference.“I think Wisconsin was a little fluke for us — we definitely got out-hustled and out-muscled playing up at Wisconsin for their senior night,” he said. “I think it was kind of a tough situation for us and I don’t think we responded well, but I think the way we’ve been ending the season the way we’re moving upwards is a positive.”Wisconsin finished the match outshooting OSU, 14-7, but Ivanov was able to gather six saves, propelling him into seventh place for single-season saves in OSU history with 101 on the season.Up next, the Buckeyes are scheduled to take on No. 18 Michigan State in the first round of the 2013 Big Ten Tournament at 2 p.m. Wednesday. The teams met earlier in the season, playing to a 1-1 tie in double overtime. read more

Ohio State sophomore cornerback Shaun Wade (24) runs on the field during the game against Rutgers on Sept. 8. Credit: Amal Saeed | Assistant Photo EditorShaun Wade is willing to do whatever it takes to help the Ohio State defense prosper. After sitting out his first season following an abdominal injury in 2017, the redshirt freshman has done anything he can to get on the field while teammates and fellow 2017 recruiting class members, such as cornerback Jeffrey Okudah and safety Isaiah Pryor, receive regular playing time. Wade did not want to get lost in the shuffle. To make sure of this, he became the ultimate utility man for the Ohio State secondary, extending his ability from his original position of cornerback to the nickel and safety spots, allowing him to find playing time at positions for which he was not recruited. For Wade, position did not matter. He just wanted to make a contribution. “I just wanted to be on the field to help the team,” Wade said. “That’s all.” Ohio State safeties coach and co-defensive coordinator Alex Grinch noticed Wade’s drive. In the Sunday practice after Ohio State’s season-opening win against Oregon State, Grinch asked Wade if he was willing to play some reps at safety. Wade agreed and, ever since, has been in Grinch’s position room.Even though safety is Wade’s newest position, Grinch said he has shown signs of progress. “He’s flashed for us a little bit,” Grinch said. “That’s a guy, when you do those things, you kind of make a determination as a staff is what’s the best position for him on the current roster to help us in 2018.”For Wade, the major difference between playing corner and playing safety is playing off the ball; he was used to playing man-on-man and on the ball as a corner his entire career. Even though nickel is closer to his normal position, Wade said it has been a transition, having to guard the slot against smaller, quicker receivers. “Nickel actually is a fun position to play,” Wade said. “It’s just like corner, but you can’t back up at all and you have to get hands-on definitely. If you don’t, it’s going to be a long day for you.”However, there have been moments when Wade has shown he is still learning. Playing nickel against Penn State’s redshirt freshman wide receiver KJ Hamler, Wade did what he was not supposed to do: back up. Instead of doing what he was supposed to — get up on Hamler at the line of scrimmage and put his hands on him to force a deflection or a catch and quick tackle — Wade backed up after the receiver did a quick stutter step. This allowed enough space, after getting the reception from Penn State redshirt senior quarterback Trace McSorley, for Hamler to outrun Wade for 93 yards, tying the longest touchdown reception allowed in Ohio State history. Grinch said a successful defense does not give up explosive plays such as the Hamler touchdown or the 93-yard run by TCU junior running back Darius Anderson on Sept. 15. He said it’s going to take the combination of improving scheme, execution and personnel to fix the issue. Even with the mistake during the Penn State game, the coaching staff views Wade as a significant part of the game plan moving forward. For defensive coordinator Greg Schiano, it can be hit or miss when a younger player enters the lineup. In Wade’s case, his recent playing time is because of consistent production on the practice field. “More reps, you either have more chances to make a mistake or more chances to make a play,” Schiano said. “And the guys that are ready, they had more chances to make a play. Shaun did that because he kept making more plays.”With Pryor suspended for the first half of the Indiana game on Saturday after recording a targeting call in the fourth quarter against Penn State, Wade could see increased playing time at safety, even if redshirt sophomore Jahsen Wint gets the start. Grinch said there is nothing settled in the secondary, but he has been pleased with the progress Wade has made, especially at safety. However, Grinch said a decision regarding Wade will need to be made: What position does the redshirt sophomore focus on? “Ultimately, you have to zero in somewhere,” Grinch said. “Otherwise, you stunt the growth of the individual.”Wade doesn’t care where he plays. He said it’s up to the coaches. As long as he is on the field on Saturdays, he will be satisfied. “I just needed to go hard, that was the only thing,” Wade said. “I got the skill set and I know how to do it in my mind. I just have to go hard every time.” read more

A provisional warrant was issued for his re-arrest on Friday as the United States tries to extradite Smith in connection to a sentence handed down in Orlando in 2009; a sentence of 30 years linked to a Ponzi scheme. Smith was since Friday night, held at the Chalk Sound Police Station after appearing in court that night and will this morning return to face Magistrate Clifton Warner as the former Olint owner plans to fight the extradition. Smith was on Thursday released from Grand Turk prison; the US warrant had a technicality, saying that David Smith was to be given into US custody upon completion of parole; since Smith served his entire sentence at Her Majesty’s Prison and never received parole, the United States was unable to touch him.
