Forget OLED – Apple’s reportedly already working on the next generation of display tech

TwitterFacebook

Apple is probably embracing a brand new display for the next version of the iPhone – but even before the switch is officially made, the company could be experimenting with the next generation of display tech. 

The most consistent rumor about the upcoming iPhone 8 is that Apple will shift from LCD displays, which have been used for every iPhone until now, to OLED screens. OLED is brighter than LCD, with better color reproduction and improved contrast while requiring less energy and no backlight, making the screen thinner. Samsung, which uses an OLED screen in the Galaxy S8, has signed on to supply the OLED displays to Apple, so there’s more than just speculation behind the rumor.  Read more…

Tom Bilyeu has a vision. It’s of a world in which Tom Bilyeu’s wisdom is available to you, aspiring business leader bereft of foresight, at any time, on any platform, in any medium, always and forever. “My product is educational content that changes your life,” says Bilyeu, 41, whose social media feeds are a never-ending stream of positivity. “Blast through ‘good enough’ and become capable of the extraordinary,” one Instagram post reads, the text running below a soft-focus photo of Bilyeu staring off into the distance. Another says, “Human potential is nearly limitless.”

For seven years, Bilyeu was, as he puts it, “the protein bar guy,” the co-founder and president of Quest Nutrition LLC, a Los Angeles-based manufacturer of low-carb snacks that reached a $1 billion valuation in 2015. Last fall he left Quest and founded Impact Theory, an entertainment company that he says will be a 21st century equivalent of Walt Disney Co., making its money on long-running franchises. It’s a lofty goal. For now, Impact Theory’s main property is a YouTube talk show Bilyeu hosts from his living room, which averages about 45,000 viewers per episode. Read more…

Top 5 Reasons You Should Install An In-Car Camera

This article originally appeared on ValuePenguin You may have noticed in recent years that people have begun to install cameras inside their cars. At first blush, these gadgets, which can cost as little as S$30 and as much as around S$1,000 plus the price of installation, may seem like just another method of parting you from your hard-earned cash. However, our team at ValuePenguin think they are a smart investment that can save you hundreds, even thousands of dollars in the long run. In the following guide, we’ll walk you through a list of reasons why installing an in-car camera, also known as a dashboard camera or “dashcam,” is well worth the cost. Installing a dashcam can save you thousands in the long run. 1. Save on your car insurance premiums One of the most direct ways you can personally benefit from installing an in-car camera is by potentially saving on your car insurance premiums.

A happy ending to a poignant NBA storyline

TwitterFacebook

J.R. Smith was living the dream: He got married to girlfriend Jewel Harris last summer right after his Cleveland Cavaliers won the NBA championship; soon after, a baby daughter was on the way. 

But that dream turned scary in January when baby Dakota was born five months early. Nearly a week after birth, she still weighed just one pound. It fell beneath the mainstream radar, but Dakota’s future was a poignant storyline basketball fans followed for much of this NBA season. 

Now that story has a happy ending. 

Smith announced via Instagram on Tuesday that Dakota has finally gone home after spending the better part of five months hospitalized.  Read more…

Apple takes a step toward lightning fast 5G

TwitterFacebook

Apple is one step closer to the super-fast wireless networks of the future — or at least being able to test them, anyway. 

The company applied for a license to experiment with millimeter wave wireless technology, aka 5G, with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), according to Business Insider. The future wireless tech is expected to massively expand networks’ bandwidth and speed, which will likely make your iPhone much faster than it is today. 

The application doesn’t share many details about the tests. It does, however, state that testing “will provide engineering data relevant to the operation of devices on wireless carriers’ future 5G networks.”  Read more…

Canadian police officer goes to house party to break up jam sesh, plays drums instead

TwitterFacebook

Members of Toronto-based rock band Vinyl Ambush feared their private gig would be shut down after police showed up to a party they were playing on Saturday. But much to their surprise, the Peel Regional Police officers didn’t break up the jam sesh, they joined in.

According to a local report from Canada’s City News, after receiving a noise complaint, cops showed up to the party and came to an agreement that the band would turn down the noise and stop playing by 9:30 p.m. That seemed pretty chill, but when the police returned later that night, the teen rockers were sure they were in trouble.
