HTC invests in audio firm Beats Electronics

WorldWide Tech and Science. Francisco De Jesus.

HTC announced a “strategic partnership and investment” in audio technology company Beats Electronics, stating that “the two fast-growing brands will focus on bringing high performance sound to HTC phones.” While the official announcement was short on details, HTC’s investor website confirmed the acquisition of a 51 percent stake of the company via its HTC America arm. Numerous reports put a price tag of US$300 million on the deal.
Beats Electronics is best known for its Beats by Dr Dre brand. HTC said the partnership will see “a line of HTC devices integrated with Beats sound innovations, available this fall [autumn].”
In an interview with All Things D, Peter Chou, CEO of HTC, said that the deal should “help create an emotional connection to HTC’s brand.” HTC is not the first technology company to work with Beats Electronics: a deal is also in place with HP for its notebook computers, which HTC said will remain in place after it…

WorldWide Tech and Science. Francisco DeJesus.

The GSMA has announced that Anne Bouverot (pictured) from France Telecom Orange is to become the association’s new head, effective September 1. Bouverot was most recently executive vice president of mobile services for the Paris-headquartered operator and has served on the board of the GSMA for the past two years.

Bouverot replaces long-standing CEO Rob Conway, who announced his resignation in June. However, Bouverot will not assume the label of CEO, instead taking the title of the GSMA’s Director General.

The reason for this switch, says the GSMA, is because the association’s board and its chairman (Franco Bernabè) wanted the GSMA's new leader’s title to “fully reflect the GSMA’s role as an association representing the interests of its members.” The association noted that the ‘Director General’ title is widely used as the highest executive officer within many industry associations and other organisations. “This is the case…

USA Falcon Hypersonic glider launched

WorldWide Tech and Science. Francisco De Jesus.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — An experimental unmanned hypersonic glider has been launched from an air base on the central California coast.
The U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency used Twitter to announce the launch Thursday from Vandenberg Air Force Base 130 miles northwest of Los Angeles.
A rocket carried the agency's Falcon Hypersonic Technology Vehicle-2 to the edge of space, where it separated from the booster to maneuver through the atmosphere at 13,000 mph. Minutes into the flight, the agency said the mission was on track in its glide phase. The mission will end with a plunge into the ocean.
A similar vehicle was launched last year and returned nine minutes of data before contact was prematurely lost.
The U.S. military is trying to develop technology to respond to threats around the globe at speeds of Mach 20 or greater.

Image
WorldWide Tech and Science. Francisco De Jesus.WARNING This video was made before the webOS 3.0.2 update.


A few bloggers and friends asked if I can make a video about the HP Touchpad performance since I overclocked the device to 1.5Ghz. This is the wifi only base model. Also the 3.02 webOS update was installed recently.
The software and procedure needed is as follows:


 1. Install version of Latest Java,
 2. webOS SDK, 
3. Sun Virtual Box. 
4. Preware. 
5. WebJar application


 From your TouchPad unconnected install Govnah and the UberKernel from webOS internals. As a backup I would suggest installation of webOS Doctor.WebOS Internals developed Govnah for webOS about two years ago. 


The application has been tested and proven to be stable. However, please understand that this may void your warranty and there's always the possibility of overheating and damaging your device. 


LAST THING! Be sure to make a donation to them! It's great to have guys like these in the webOS Homebrew community!htt…
