Bharat Browser Eager to Be India’s UC Browser

On June 23, BlueSky released Bharat Browser as its latest browser with features such as Indian language support and access to hyper-regional content to persuade Indian consumers.

The startup had the Venus Browser as its first Web browser for mobile users that was launched in October 2017 and came preloaded on phones by companies including Comio.

Gadgets 360 spoke with BlueSky Inventions Co-Founder and CEO Dinesh Prasad over a phone call to understand how the Bharat Browser is different from other Indian Web browsers, and why we ultimately need an Indian browser.

Dinesh Prasad, Co-Founder and CEO of BlueSky Inventions, admits the word "Bharat" in Bharat Browser helps attract new users So did you choose Bharat as a keyword to get more users on board through that name only?

Bharat Browser comes with a dedicated My State tab to offer content from a specific state Although UC Browser is banned, from the consumers' point of view, why should I use a “made in India” browser at this moment?

iPhone 12 to feature ‘high-end’ camera lenses, insider says

Kuo’s new note does not specify the nature of the “high end” lenses the iPhone 12 is getting.

Kuo says that Largan will supply premium camera lenses to Apple for the iPhones, although deliveries have been delayed compared to previous years.

A new note to investors from analyst Mini-Chi Kuo (via MacRumors) elaborates on the camera upgrades coming to the iPhone.

Mini-Chi Kuo said in a new note that the iPhone 12 is getting “high-end” camera lenses from Largan, but the supply has been delayed.

Kuo said in previous reports that the 5.4-inch and 6.1-inch iPhone 12 models will hit production in September, while the 6.7-inch Pro will be delayed to Smith started writing about gadgets as a hobby, and before he knew it he was sharing his views on tech stuff with readers around the world.

The Pixel 3a Is Dead

Then, after finally being able to ramp up production, Google may have decided to delay the Pixel 4a’s release again to avoid the recent slump in smartphones sales, which has seen smartphone sales drop by 20% worldwide.

But if you’ll allow me to speculate...what probably happened is that like a lot of other recent gadgets, production delays forced Google to postpone the Pixel 4a’s intended release window.

Last year Google released the Pixel 3a at Google I/O in early May, and it was generally expected that Google would follow suit this year for the Pixel 4a.

After a little more than a year on the market supply for the Pixel 3a on Google Store began to dry up recently, and in a statement first sent to Android Police, Google said “[The] Google Store has sold through its inventory and completed sales of Pixel 3a.

So while we continue to wait for word on the Pixel 4a, let’s take a quick moment to remember the Pixel 3a, a phone that combined good performance, simple design, reasonable price, and camera quality on a par with some of the best phones on the market, which is all you really want from a great, mid-range phone.

Iron Man VR is a tinfoil version of a truly great Iron Man game

While early trailers might give the impression that Iron Man VR is a gussied-up on-rails shooter, the reality is that Camouflaj has given players nearly complete freedom to soar through the skies as Iron Man.

Since players are standing vertically the whole time, it’s still not quite analogous to the soaring Iron Man flight in the films or comics, but it’s as close as you can probably get with a VR setup.

Unfortunately, while Iron Man VR has moments where it really captures what it might be like to suit up as Iron Man himself, it’s held back by finicky controls, repetitive levels, and gameplay that just isn’t that much fun to play for very long.

Iron Man VR is a game with a simple premise: putting players inside the famous metal suit of Marvel’s Armored Avenger, letting you fly around and battle supervillains with laser blasts and gadgets galore.

‘Iron Man VR’ is very repetitive The game also breaks up the Iron Man action with plenty of time spent jumping around Tony’s mansion or Nick Fury’s helicarrier doing the gimmicky sorts of VR tasks that the genre had outgrown years ago.

Apple Earnings Show Growing Immunity to Smartphone Malaise

"The Services segment will grow between 13 percent and 20 percent per year over the next five years driven by continued growth in existing services along with new, innovative services," Gene Munster, co-founder of Loup Ventures and a veteran Apple analyst, wrote in an email following the results on Tuesday.

Synovus's Morgan recently estimated that services will drive about 60 percent of Apple's revenue growth over the next five years.

As long as Apple continues to sell around the same number of devices each year - 217 million iPhones, more than 40 million iPads, and almost 20 million Macs in fiscal 2017 - it can sell users of these devices a growing list of services that integrate tightly with the hardware.

Cheaper iPhone models for emerging markets, and wearable gadgets like the Apple Watch, also drove revenue growth.

"Slowly but surely, [Apple] is morphing into more than just an iPhone story and is displaying ability to sustain revenue growth irrespective of iPhone trajectory," Amit Daryanani, an analyst at RBC Capital Markets, wrote in a research note.

Virgin Media users set to enjoy huge broadband upgrade without increasing monthly bills

The Hub 4 boasts more antennae than its predecessor, the Hub 3, meaning it can manage multiple devices at the same time around the home which can all share the hyperfast speed.

So, if you've got plenty of connected home gadgets – from smart doorbells, security cameras, always-listening smart speakers from Google or Amazon and more – these should all get a strong connection throughout peak times.

The rumoured free speed boost – from 500Mbps to 600Mbps – and the arrival of the 500Mbps speeds for broadband-only customers could launch next month, according to sources speaking to ISPreview.

Virgin Media has not commented on the rumoured plans for the speed boost across the UK.

The gadgets Late Night with Seth Meyers uses to keep the show running from home

Since he started hosting Late Night at home during the coronavirus pandemic, he’s also been in charge of recording his own video and audio, running a teleprompter, and uploading the files to his production staff to make the show look, feel, and sound enough like the one he’s been making in 30 Rockefeller Plaza for the past six years.

A late-night talk show is a pretty well-oiled machine at NBC — the format has been around since at least the 1950s — but according to Eric Leiderman, one of the producers for Late Night with Seth Meyers, a lot of the production workflows from Studio 8G couldn’t carry over to a show that’s done completely remotely.

Since the hosts of these TV shows aren’t trained to operate professional broadcast-quality systems, it’s left producers, directors, and studio technicians to send iPads, USB podcasting microphones, Lightning port lavalier microphones, and webcams to the hosts and guests instead.

For the guest spots — an integral part of any late-night talk show — Meyers conducts the interviews over enterprise-turned-consumer video chat app Zoom.

Before each interview, Late Night director Alex Vietmeier and lighting director Kathleen Dobbins chat with the guests on Zoom to figure out the right spot for them to sit in their home to get the best-looking framing, lighting, and sound.

Lovely reason why NHS staff are pinning photos of themselves on PPE

A clinician at Florence Nightingale Hastanesi hospital in Turkey with an instant picture of themselves to show their patients who is treating them (Fujifilm ) Fujifilm UK’s general manager Neil Harris said: “Donating instax cameras and film is just a small way in which Fujifilm is able to help – but to both NHS staff and patients, we’ve been told that by being able to easily show the friendly face behind the PPE, it can help bring comfort and understanding in the most difficult of situations.”

“Having photos of the doctor without their mask is a simple but imaginative idea that should provide a lot of reassurance to patients who will be able to see the face behind the mask.”

Speaking about the initiative, CEO of the Patients Association Rachel Power, said: “PPE is vitally important for both keeping patients and doctors safe and reassuring patients about their safety at a worrying time.

The company has donated its Instax instant cameras to 31 intensive care units across the UK which allow doctors and nurses to take a photo of themselves and attach it to the front of their hospital gowns so their patients can see the person behind the mask.

Do You Remember the Time Sega Made a Micro-Sized Self-Playing Grand Piano Too

The replica’s biggest selling point is its self-playing functionality, where a collection of built-in songs across six different genres (including classical, Japanese, and even western) could be played, with the appropriate keys appearing to be pressed by an invisible pianist thanks to actuators hidden inside the piano’s body.

Users can attempt to plink out a tune using a toothpick or an especially thin finger but manually playing a song on the Grand Pianist seems like a feature that few would actually have taken advantage of.

They’re not made of ivory, but the Grand Pianist’s 88 plastic keys all work, although the metal strings inside the piano are just for show; this is essentially a miniature electronic synthesizer.

Yesterday, Sega revealed its Game Gear Micro throwback console and if you think putting just four retro games inside a tiny handheld with an even tinier screen was strange, the company has some even weirder gadgets in its back catalog, including a meticulously detailed miniature grand piano that plays all by itself.

The self-playing keys could be disabled altogether for those who just wanted to use the Grand Pianist as a speaker, although given it was released over a decade before wifi and Bluetooth became common, users would have to plug an audio cable into the tiny piano to pipe music through its equally tiny speaker.
