Don Bradman Cricket 17 Release Date for PC Announced; May Not Be Available on Disc
HIGHLIGHTS
Don Bradman Cricket 17’s PC release date is January 22
The game will be available for the PS4 and Xbox One on December 22
The PC version is probably digital only
If you thought you could play Don Bradman Cricket 17 on the PC at the same time as it hits the PS4 and Xbox One, think again. Developer Big Ant Studios has confirmed that the PC version of the game has been delayed to January 22.

“We have built completely new batting, bowling and fielding mechanics based on player feedback,” Big Ant Studios CEO, Ross Symons said in a prepared statement. “With Don Bradman 17 releasing right in the heart of the Aussie cricket season, we’re looking forward to players recreating the classic moments of the summer of cricket in their homes.”

“We were overwhelmed by the success of our first run at Don Bradman Cricket,” Symons added. “To this day players from around the world play it daily, whether they are simulating their favourite test team matchups, or playing games with as little as one over each side. We think they’re going to love the enhanced career mode, refined on-field mechanics, and enhanced visuals and animation. After all, many of the changes came as a direct result of feedback from our most dedicated fans.”

“The first Don Bradman Cricket game did a wonderful job of reflecting the heritage of The Don, and giving cricket fans around the world an authentic and accurate rendition of the sport on their gaming consoles,” Rina Hore from the Bradman Foundation said. “We’re looking forward to seeing how fans respond to this year’s greatly enhanced version.”

Furthermore, it appears that Big Ant could be following the footsteps of bigger publishers like Ubisoft and EA by not having a disc version of the game available at retail for PC. Reason being, a press release from the studio mentions a retail and digital release of the game on the PS4 and Xbox One. All that’s said for PC is that it would be available on Steam a month later.

Mi Notebook Air May Remind You of Another Computer — But Cheaper

Mi Notebook Air, the New Xiaomi Laptop, May Remind You of Another Computer -- But Cheaper

The founder and CEO of Xiaomi, Lei Jun, doesn’t like to be compared to Steve Jobs, but the latest product from the company, the Mi Notebook Air will do very little to convince people otherwise. You don’t have to have a degree from Stanford in computer science to see the similarities with Apple’s Macbook Air, right down to a portion of the name. That said, the Mi Notebooks are a worthy challenger for the computers coming out of Cupertino.

Who is Xiaomi?

Just in case you haven’t heard of Xiaomi, the Chinese company was founded in 2010 by Jun, and its rise to the smartphone leader board has been remarkable.  In just five short years, the company has become the fifth largest smartphone maker, selling close to 71 million units in 2015.

In addition to the phones, the company has a range of other products, including tablets, personal transports, drones, healthcare monitors, cloud services and more.

First Xiaomi Laptop: The Mi Notebook Air

The first ever laptop line by Xiaomi was a big surprise when it was announced at a recent press event in Beijing. And the company didn’t disappoint when it introduced two notebooks, a 13.3″ and a 12.5″ version. So here is a basic comparison between the Xiaomi and Apple Air notebooks.

The 13.3″ Mi Notebook Air

The 13.3″ Mi notebook is 14.8mm (0.58 inches) thick and weighs in at 1.28kg or 2.82 pounds, which makes it slightly thinner and lighter than the Apple version. The real differentiator is the discrete Nvidia Geforce 940MX graphics card and 256GB SSD storage that come standard on the Xiaomi. Not having to share the memory to process games and graphic intensive applications means the Mi notebook is going to work well for gamers and designers.

Xiaomi Laptop - Mi Notebook Air-970-80

The processor is an Intel 2.3GHz Core i5-6200U (Turbo up to 2.7GHz), with 8GB of DDR4 RAM and a 9.5 hour battery life, according to the company. These are all great features for a flagship PC, but what is more impressive is the price, which comes in at less than the 11″ Macbook Air at $750.

The 13″ inch MacBook Air has many different configurations, but the one that currently has the $999.00 price tag on the company’s site has the following specs. It comes in a little bigger than the Mi Note at 17mm (0.66 inches) thick and weighing in at 1.35kg (2.9 pounds). The processor is a 1.6GHz dual-core Intel Core i5 processor (Turbo up to 2.7GHz), with 8GB of RAM, and 128GB of flash storage.

The 12.5″ Mi Notebook Air

The 12.5″ Mi notebook is slimmer and weighs less, coming in at 12.9mm (0.5 inches) and 1.07kg (2.3 pounds). The specs also come down considerably, which is not surprising since it is more than $200 cheaper.

The processor is an Intel Core M3 CPU and it includes 4GB of RAM, a 128GB SSD, one USB 3.0 port and an HDMI port. The battery life is much better on this version, which lets you enjoy two additional hours compared to the 13″ model. You get all this for $520, not bad when you compare it to the 11″ Macbook air.

Xiaomi Laptop - Mi Notebook Air with a diagonal of 12.5 inches

The 11″ Macbook air is thicker at 17mm or 0.66 inches and weighs almost the same at 1.08kg. However, the Mac has a better processor with the Intel Core i5 and more options as to how you can configure your device. The standard version includes 4GB of RAM, 128GB SSD storage, and 9 hours of battery life. The latest available price for these specs from Apple is $899, which is $379 more expensive than the Xiaomi.

The Price Difference for Small Businesses

Small businesses are always on the lookout for affordable technology, and Xiaomi makes a great case to merit a second or even a third look at what it is offering. Price differences of $249 and $379 are considerable and may be enough to sway many owners to make the change. But it is important to remember Apple has carved out a niche market for creative types who will almost always go for the Macbook, and there is nothing Xiaomi or anyone else can do about that.

Both the Mi Notebook and Macbook have great specs, but Apple gives you more configuration options. Since this is the first offering from Xiaomi, it is limited, but if the company takes the same route for its notebooks as it did its smartphones, it won’t be long before it makes more options available for its customers.

Though there’s no knowing when Xiami will offer this notebook for sale outside China, those determined enough can doubtless find a way to get it. The question is, would this device be an asset to your business?

Facebook Signs EU’s Privacy Shield Treaty; May Spark Privacy Row

Facebook Signs EU's Privacy Shield Treaty; May Spark Privacy RowSocial networking giant Facebook has agreed to adopt a new European Union (EU) data accord that allows personal information to be transferred to the US, potentially sparking yet another privacy row, the media reported.

Facebook has quietly signed the Privacy Shield – a controversial treaty that allows US technology companies to transfer EU citizens’ details abroad. It will apply to certain advertising data and its new Workplace service for businesses, the Telegraph UK reported on Saturday.

Privacy Shield, a replacement deal that was designed to provide extra safeguards for Europeans, came into force in July. Google and Microsoft have already adopted the treaty.

Facebook signed up at the end of September, although only two aspects of the social network use it.The first is Workplace, a special version of Facebook that allows company employees to communicate, which was launched last week.

The other is its “Ads and Measurement” technology that uses customer data supplied by other companies to target adverts.

Other user data is not covered by the treaty, although it can be transferred to the US under secondary legal measures, the report said.

“We have signed up two important parts of our business to the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework – Facebook at Work and our relevant Ads and Measurement services,” a Facebook spokesman confirmed the report.

Facebook’s adoption of the treaty is significant because the prior US-EU agreement, Safe Harbour which was abolished by the European Court of Justice as a direct result of legal action against the social network by privacy campaigners.

However, it is likely to lead to further scrutiny of the Privacy Shield deal from Facebook’s critics, the report stated.

HP Elite x3 Phablet May Be Pricey for Budget Conscious Small Businesses

HP Elite x3 Phablet May Be Pricey for Budget Conscious Small Businesses

The HP Elite x3 phablet is one device that functions  as two. While it has features that back up that claim, the $799 price tag may be a bit much for some small businesses.

The new x3 phablet is part of HP’s continuing effort to blur the lines between mobile and desktop computing with modular designs. Since the company split in two, there has been a concerted effort to revive its PC segment with some innovative devices.

The X3 is part of that drive, and HP (NYSE:HPQ) has tried to push this mission forward by creating a portable device that is just as at home on the desk with additional components.

HP Elite x3 phablet Specs

As its price should suggest, the X3 has premium hardware:

  • Display – 5.96-inch 2560×1440 AMOLED,
  • Processor – Quad-core 2.15Ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 CPU with Qualcomm Adreno 530 GPU,
  • 16MP f/2.0 FHD rear-facing camera and 8MP front-facing camera and Iris camera,
  • Memory – 4GB RAM,
  • Internal Storage – 64GB with up to 2TB microSD expansion,
  • Connectivity – Wi-Fi 802.11a/b/g/n/ac (2×2), Bluetooth 4.0 LE, NFC, and
  • Battery – 4150 mAh Li-ion polymer (non-removable) with Qi and PMA for wireless charging.

There is also a dock with two USB 3.0 ports, a USB-C port that can be used for charging and a full-sized display port connector.

HP Elite x3 Phablet

While these features are impressive, where the X3 shines is the utilities it comes with. It has Microsoft’s Continuum, Windows 10 Mobile, and HP’s Workspace that turn this phablet into a PC. You will be able to use Win32 apps on your phone, which can be invaluable for businesses that rely on these applications.

With Continuum, you can start a task anywhere and finish it at your desk without saving, syncing or restarting, by simply docking your HP Elite x3.

HP Elite x3 Phablet

The HP Elite x3 is not cheap, and not many small businesses will be able to afford it, but for those that do, it takes the collaborative and remote workforce environment to a new level.

Mobile Phone Production in India May Reach 500 Million in 2 Years: DoT

Mobile Phone Production in India May Reach 500 Million in 2 Years: DoT

Mobile Phone Production in India May Reach 500 Million in 2 Years: DoT
Mobile phone manufacturing in the country may reach 500 million units in coming two years on the back of good base of talent and an incentive policy, a top Department of Telecom (DoT) official said Sunday.

This year, India produced 100 million phones as compared to 45 million last year.

“The number of phones being manufactured was 10 million sometime back (which increased) to 45 million last year and 100 million this year. The time has come when we will reach 500 million, may be in 2 years,” Telecom Secretary J S Deepak said in New Delhi.

(Also see: Mobile Phone Production in India Reaches 100 Million)

He was speaking on the second day of a seminar on Telecom and Broadcasting theme – ART (Adjudication, Regulation, Telecommunication) of Convergence, TDSAT.

He added that apart from phones, the differential tariff is helping domestic manufacturers to get into other areas like medical electronics, consumer electronics as well as broadband equipment, set up boxes.

“Today with base of talent and incentive policy, India is becoming a global hub for manufacturing of phones and specially low-end phones,” he added.

The government is making efforts to reduce imports of electronic products and meet requirement of domestic market through indigenous production.
The government has received proposals worth Rs. 1.13 lakh crore in the electronics manufacturing segment from major brands under the modified special incentive package scheme (M-SIPS).

M-SIPS has been extended till July 2020, which was earlier valid till July 2017. The scheme offers capital subsidies to large investments in electronics manufacturing and system design.

The Secretary also said that making high-speed broadband available to individuals in rural areas is a priority of the government.

According to a survey, he said, while Internet users may have touched 400 million, broadband users are in the range of 40-50 million and growing very slowly in rural areas.

“May be 7 percent people in rural areas use Internet.

More importantly, it’s the issue of digital divide. We have only 14 percent rural households which are digitally literate…this needs to change,” he said.

Evernote Says Small Number of Mac Users May Have Lost Notes, Offers Premium Subscription

Evernote Says Small Number of Mac Users May Have Lost Notes, Offers Premium SubscriptionEvernote Says Small Number of Mac Users May Have Lost Notes, Offers Premium Subscription
HIGHLIGHTS
The company says it was only able to restore some lost notes
Users with lost notes can attempt to manually restore them
Premium users can use the gift code for an additional year of service
A small number of Evernote for Mac users are being sent an email by the company that apologises for a bug that caused data loss in certain types of notes – those featuring images or other attachments. Text notes are said to have remained unaffected. The company is making up for the issue by offering Evernote Premium, which also helps restore missing date from notes by using the premium Note History feature.

The email to users states that a small number of users running versions of Evernote for Mac released in June and September were affected, which is a rather vague description for those worried users who may have lost data in hundreds of notes. However, the company confirmed to TechCrunch that specific versions 453991 (which was available directly from Evernote servers) and 454042 (available from the Mac App Store) were the ones affected, under “specific conditions”.

Evernote in its email tells users to update immediately to the latest version – v6.9.2 (454158 from Evernote and 454159 from the Mac App Store) – to avoid the issue and also prevent any “further loss of data”. The company added that as soon as it discovered the issue it “worked quickly to implement a solution and attempted to restore all lost data”, however, it did not succeed in some cases.

(Also see: Evernote ‘Can Overwhelm Some People,’ Admits Ken Inoue, GM APAC and Japan)
Those users that lost data can manually restore the data by using the Note History feature available to Evernote Premium subscribers, which as we mentioned was also being provided to free users that were affected by the issue via a redemption code. Those users already on Evernote Premium can use the code to buy another year of premium services, or save them as Points to be used at a later point.

The company is telling users to update their Evernote for Mac app via the menu, from where they can navigate to Help > Check For Updates… It adds that users who do not see the option should visit the Mac App Store or the Evernote website to download the latest version of the app.

Of course, the entire debacle is very embarrassing for a note-taking service. Evernote told TechCrunch however that once its recently-begun migration to the Google Cloud platform is complete, such issues will be a easier to prevent and resolve. The full email, with the subject “We’re sorry. Please update Evernote for Mac”, can be seen below.

We have identified a bug in some versions of Evernote for Mac that can cause images and other attachments to be deleted from a note under specific conditions. We believe you are one of a small number of people impacted by this bug.

Please update Evernote on your Mac to the latest version as soon as possible:

From the menu, go to Help > Check For Updates…

If you do not see this menu option, update through the Mac App Store or from our website

The bug can occur in the version of Evernote for Mac released in September, and less frequently in versions released since June. In these versions, certain sequences of events, such as skimming quickly through a large number of notes, can cause an image or other attachments to be deleted from a note without warning. Text in notes is not affected.

Once we identified the problem, we worked quickly to implement a solution and attempted to restore all lost data. Unfortunately, some of your attachments couldn’t be automatically restored. However, you may be able to recover your attachments using Evernote’s note history feature available through Evernote Premium.

We are giving your account one free year of Evernote Premium to make amends and give you access to priority customer support via chat or email. If you already have Premium, the gift code can be used to extend your subscription for one additional year, or banked as Points to use for later.

If you run into any difficulties redeeming your code, follow ….

We understand how important your notes and attachments are, and we apologize. Again, please update your app as soon as possible to prevent any further loss of data.

Many iPhone 7 Users Reporting Bluetooth Connectivity Issues; iOS 10 May Be the Culprit

Many iPhone 7 Users Reporting Bluetooth Connectivity Issues; iOS 10 May Be the Culprit

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Spotty Bluetooth connectivity common among iPhone 7 users
  • Apple has been releasing updates in quick succession to fix issues
  • Apple has not yet officially acknowledged the Bluetooth issue

Since sales for Apple’s latest iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus began, users around the world have experienced a number of issues, bugs, and glitches with their devices. Earlier reports pertained to issues like a weird hissing noise, loss in cellular service and Lightning EarPod issues. Recently, two separate polls revealed that spotty Bluetooth connectivity was among the most common issues being faced by users.

The polls, conducted by popular tech sites Gizmodo and 9to5Mac, reveal that many users are unable to connect their iPhones to in-car entertainment systems. The problem, however, is not limited to iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus users. Those who have updated their iPhone units to the latest iOS 10 OS are also facing the issue.

(Also see: iOS 10: Ten Cool Things to Try in Apple’s Latest Mobile OS)

Gizmodo has received 12 different email tips related to Bluetooth connectivity on the iPhone. One of the readers told the site that automatic Bluetooth connectivity failed with the iPhone 7 but worked seamlessly with older units like iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s.

Meanwhile, 9to5Mac has received complaints from BMW owners stating that their iPhone 7 device abruptly disconnects or stops working when connected to their car’s system.

Apple has been releasing updates in quick succession in its attempt to solve various bugs and issues. So far, none of the updates have resolved the Bluetooth connectivity issue and one can expect a third update to iOS 10 to roll out soon enough to address that. Notably however, Apple has not yet officially acknowledged the issue.

Spotty Bluetooth connectivity as an issue would not have garnered so much attention had Apple stayed with the headphone jack. However, with the Cupertino giant aiming for a wireless future, Bluetooth connectivity is now a major factor for Apple’s latest devices and the company needs to make sure that connectivity is seamless on this front.

iPhone 7 May Face Supply Shortage at Launch: Report

iPhone 7 May Face Supply Shortage at Launch: Report

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Blass says that he is confident about the September 16 launch date
  • Next iPhone coud be called the iPhone 7 or iPhone 6SE
  • The larger variant will sport a dual camera setup

It’s the end of August, and there is no Apple invite. This silence from the Cupertino giant is getting people a bit edgy, and we are now starting to question all previous rumours. However, this delay could possibly be because of the production difficulties Apple is currently facing.

A new report from Nikkei claims that the iPhone is going through production mishaps leading shortages in supply chain. A fair number of faulty components could lead to less stock on launch day. “If Apple sticks to its launch schedule from last year, there may not be enough supply at the beginning, as some suppliers are still trying to fix low yield rates of their components,” the paper cites an industry source familiar with the matter to say.

Furthermore, Yuanta Investment Consulting analyst Jeff Pu claims that this year almost 10 million fewer iPhone 7 units will be manufactured, than last year’s iPhone 6s. To put things into further perspective, the iPhone 6s also faced significant shortage at launch.

Alongside, noted tipster Evan Blass has again reiterated that Apple will release the next iPhone into the market on September 16. He retweeted his July tweet that hinted at a US market release of September 16, and quoted, “FWIW, I’m very confident on this date.” Apple traditionally hosts an event a week before the smartphone hits the market. This means any time in the next week, largely expected to be on September 7. Blass is rarely wrong, so Apple is still expected to send out invites some time this week. There’s also a report that tips carrier availability a little later on September 23.

x

While the launch date mystery continues, rumours suggest that the iPhone 7 will come with little change in design. The camera at the back will have a protective ring around it and the antenna bands have been shifted to the edges. It will see camera upgrades, the new iOS 10 running out-of-the-box, and a new Force Touch Home button possibly. There’s also the big absence of the 3.5mm audio jackthis time around. Apple says goodbye to the 16GB variant, and is looking to replace it with 32GB as the base storage variant. The other storage options will be 128GB and 256GB.

The larger Apple smartphone will see many hardware upgrades like the dual camera setup, and aSmart Connector as well. To accommodate all of this, Apple will also introduce a new 3GB RAM. Both the variants will come with the new A10 chipset.

Lastly, but importantly, there’s a lot of noise about the next iPhone being called the iPhone 6SE. This is due to the minimal design changes, and one of the latest leak even shows the final retail box with the iPhone 6SE branding on it. Whatever may be the name, expect the next iPhone to go out of stock real soon.

Reserve Bank may not be able to meet inflation target: IMF paper

The IMF working paper assumes significance as the RBI has recently implemented an inflation-targeting regime that requires it to hit publicly announced targets for retail inflation, based on consumer price index (CPI).The IMF working paper assumes significance as the RBI has recently implemented an inflation-targeting regime that requires it to hit publicly announced targets for retail inflation, based on consumer price index (CPI).

New Delhi: An International Monetary Fund (IMF) paper has raised question marks over the ability of the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) to target inflation through monetary measures, saying the size of formal financial sector is small in India and may undermine the effectiveness of interest rate changes on aggregate demand.

The IMF working paper assumes significance as the RBI has recently implemented an inflation-targeting regime that requires it to hit publicly announced targets for retail inflation, based on consumer price index (CPI).

Under the new dispensation, RBI will be required to meet retail inflation target of 4%, plus or minus 2% over the next 5 years. The interest rate from next policy, due on 4 October, will be decided by a six-member monetary policy committee (MPC) instead of the central bank governor.

“In the absence of effective and reliable links between the policy instruments controlled by the RBI and aggregate demand in the Indian economy the public may lack confidence that the RBI is able to deliver on its announced inflation target, making the target more difficult (and costly) to achieve,” said the IMF working paper—’Monetary Transmission in Developing Countries: Evidence from India’.

It said that careful studies of the effectiveness of monetary transmission in low-income countries have often found monetary policy effects that are counterintuitive, weak, and/or unreliable.

“On the other hand, the small size of the formal financial sector in India would tend to undermine the effects on bank lending rates on aggregate demand,” said the paper authored by Prachi Mishra, Peter Montiel and Rajeswari Sengupta.

According to the paper, in case of India, the response of the exchange rate to monetary policy shocks is in the right direction but the magnitude is very small. “The implication is that any effects of monetary policy on aggregate demand in India are more likely to operate through the trade balance than through interest-sensitive components of aggregate of aggregate demand, but any such effects are likely to be weak,” it said.

The paper noted that there is no reason to expect that mechanisms of monetary transmission in low-income countries would be similar to those that have been found to operate in high-income ones.

In China, Fears That Pokemon Go May Aid Locating Military Bases

In China, Fears That Pokemon Go May Aid Locating Military Bases

Not everyone loves Pokemon Go, the mobile game that has become an instant hit around the world since a limited release just a week ago.

The augmented reality game, in which players walk around real-life neighbourhoods to hunt and catch virtual cartoon characters on their smartphone screens, has been blamed in the United States for several robberies of distracted mobile phone users and car crashes.

A US senator has asked the developers of the game to clarify its data privacy protections.

And although the game is not available in China, the world’s biggest smartphone and online gaming market, some people there fear it could become a Trojan horse for offensive action by the United States and Japan.

“Don’t play Pokemon GO!!!” said user Pitaorenzhe on Chinese microblogging site Weibo. “It’s so the US and Japan can explore China’s secret bases!”

The conspiracy theory is that Japan’s Nintendo Co Ltd, which part owns the Pokemon franchise, and America’s Google can work out where Chinese military bases are by seeing where users can’t go to capture Pokemon characters.

x

The game relies on Google services such as Maps.

The theory is that if Nintendo places rare Pokemon in areas where they see players aren’t going, and nobody attempts to capture the creature, it can be deduced that the location has restricted access and could be a military zone.

“Then, when war breaks out, Japan and the US can easily target their guided missiles, and China will have been destroyed by the invasion of a Japanese-American game,” said a social media post circulated on Weibo.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang said he was unaware of reports that the game could be a security risk and that he didn’t have time to play with such things. He gave no further details.

Other government ministries did not respond to faxed questions about the game.

Undeterred fans
But the calls for a boycott, and the fact that Pokemon Go hasn’t even been released in China, have not deterred fans.

“I really looked forward to playing the Pokemon artificial reality game since they first announced it. I really liked Pokemon as a kid,” said Gan Tian, a 22-year-old student at Tsinghua University. She plays an unofficial version with an artificial map based on countries where the game is available.

But for many others in the country, playing is proving a challenge. Not only is the game not on Chinese app stores, but Google services are blocked in China.

Nintendo has given no indication as to when or whether Pokemon Go will be released in China.

Niantic, the lab that developed the game, declined to comment on Friday on an eventual launch. Chief executive John Hanke said in an interview that it would be technically possible to launch in China, but noted a host of complex rules and restrictions.
