Prototype Nano-Tech Charger Can Fully Recharge Your Cell Battery in Under a Minute

Apr 07, 2014 - 3:19 PM - by dgstorm

Although it sounds like something out of Shadowrun novel, there is some new tech on the horizon which could make our worries about smart-device battery drain a thing of the past. An Israeli company named StoreDot just showed off a high-tech new prototype battery charger at Microsoft's Think Next event. This new battery charger utilizes Nanodots technology, which is essentially some of the newest nano-tech available.

Nanodots are bio-organic nanocrystals with superior energy storage capabilities, although commercial applications for them could eventually be seen in data storage, flexible displays, and imaging sensors. In this particular application...

Samsung Breakthrough Could Commercialize Graphene Sooner Than Expected

Apr 04, 2014 - 10:46 AM - by dgstorm

Samsung has been working with the Sungkyunkwan University to develop graphene technology for future flexible devices, and they recently made a breakthrough in the manufacturing process. This breakthrough is likely to bring the super-material to market much sooner than predicted. This new breakthrough is a new manufacturing method, designed to produce large, thin sheets of graphene. While it is true that methods for that already exist, what is unique about this one is that Samsung's process does not reduce the mechanical properties of the nanomaterial, which has been a problem of other manufacturing techniques.

If you haven't heard of graphene, it's a nanomaterial which is likely to completely disrupt and alter the future of the entire electronics industry. Here's a quote which explains why graphene is so revolutionary...

International Samsung Galaxy S4 Gets KitKat Update

Mar 05, 2014 - 9:03 AM - by dgstorm

Look what happens... I'm out sick for a day and I come back to a spam-fest of KitKat updates for multiple devices! The international version of the Samsung Galaxy S4 is the next device to report the Android 4.4.2 KitKat update. So far, (as of the original source of this report) the update has only been rolling out to users in Belgium, Greece, Malaysia and Poland. The file size for these folks is between 362 to 424 MB depending on what software they are currently on.

It's possible it is rolling out to other regions as well. Sound off in this thread if you have the update and give us your impressions of it.

[Editorial] VZW's CEO Claims Heavy Internet Users Should Pay More Than Everyone Else

Feb 26, 2014 - 9:59 AM - by dgstorm

For most of us, the roles(s) we play in life color our perspective of the world. Because of this, it's sometimes challenging to see things from "other people's shoes." This begs the question though... is it harder for a billionaire CEO of a billion+ dollar corporation to understand the perspective of the average working-class American consumer, or is it harder for them to understand his point of view?

Regardless of the philosophical debate that question might spark, we have a prime example of this to share with you today. Verizon CEO Lowell McAdam recently made some potentially inflammatory statements...

FCC Already Working on Plan to Fix Net Neutrality and Save The Internet

Feb 12, 2014 - 10:17 AM - by dgstorm

It almost sounds like the plot of some Hollywood thriller, but a new report indicates the FCC is trying to stay one step ahead of the dark forces threatening Net Neutrality. They are already working on a plan to circumvent the recent results which damaged the heart of a free an open internet.

In case you missed it, a few weeks ago we reported that Net Neutrality was dealt a potentially "lethal" blow by the combined forces of Verizon, AT&T and several other cable companies, telecoms and ISPs. On January 14th, 2014 a United States Court of Appeals Judge for the District of Columbia ruled against the FCC, and basically gave ISPs the power to oversee and control any internet content across their service. This would mean the ISPs could block/restrict/data cap/charge more for any content they wanted to, and for any reason.

This was a major blow to the FCC's power to insure a free and open internet. Luckily, the FCC was prepared for this possibility and a new report indicates they are already putting a plan in motion to bypass this ruling. Here's their idea...
