Why it matters: Samsung created its C-Lab in 2012 as an incubator of innovative ideas from employees. Projects that advance to the end of the program can be spun off into standalone start-ups that Samsung supports through seed money investments and business consulting. Samsung at the annual Consumer Electronics Show will highlight eight new projects from its C-Lab (Creative Lab) program including an auto-adjusting monitor stand and a hearing assistant solution called SnailSound. The Girin Monitor Stand is designed to help improve users’ posture while they work on their computers. Sensors within the stand survey head and neck positioning in real-time; when a user is exhibiting poor posture, the monitor slowly moves so the person will adjust how they are sitting. The hope is that with repeated training, users may learn to correct poor posture naturally. SnailSound, meanwhile, consists of an earpiece and an app. Through basic hearing tests, the app gathers user-preferred sounds and … [Read more...] about Samsung to showcase eight new C-Lab projects at CES

Containers upended traditional software application deployment practices by opening up a whole new range of possibilities across multiple machines, and Docker, which pioneered the modern container movement, is joining forces with Microsoft on a new open-source project that adds new capabilities to containerized applications. The two companies are expected to unveil the Cloud Native Application Bundle (CNAB) Tuesday alongside Microsoft’s virtual Connect event and Docker’s European developer conference. CNAB helps users specify how application resources will be deployed across different computing environments both on and off the cloud by putting containerized applications into a single package; a container for containers, if you will. Containers helped developers break applications down into distinct pieces that could be executed across multiple servers, but higher-level applications need to work a little more closely together. CNAB will allow companies to re-package those … [Read more...] about Microsoft and Docker release new open-source project that’s basically a container for containers
Google on Wednesday announced plans to add three new devices to Project Fi. Starting today, Project Fi customers can use the Moto G6, LG G7, and LG V35, the latter of which was just announced (and is also available through AT&T). Today’s news expands Project Fi with some exciting new blood. Before, the only devices officially compatible with Project Fi included Google’s Pixel and Nexus phones, along with the Moto X4. For my money, the Pixel 2 is still your best option, but it’s nice to see more variety. The Moto G6 is one of the cheapest options available through Project Fi at just $199. The device offers a 5.7-inch (1080×2160) LCD display, 12-megapixel camera, 4GB of RAM, 3,000mAh battery, and Android 8.0. That’s a pretty good deal. If you decide to purchase the G7 or V35, those devices will retail for $749 and $899, respectively. When you consider the Pixel 2 is $649 and the Pixel 2 XL is $849, LG’s devices hardly seem worth it. Then again, … [Read more...] about Google adds three new phones to Project Fi

Dressed in blue jeans and ditching his tie, Putin jumped into the driver's seat of an orange dump truck Tuesday and drove across the bridge with cameras recording every move. One camera in the cab of the truck captured his small talk with a construction worker who was along for the ride and broadcast it across state media. The imagery was deliberate: Putin was sealing his disputed 2014 … [Read more...] about Putin made a show of crossing the new Crimea bridge. But he was upstaged by a cat.
