Samsung has denied recent claims its TVs have been built to cheat at tests following allegations that Volkswagen-style "Defeat Devices" could have been used to fool regulators about environmental standards.The claims, which were made in The Guardian this morning, suggested the South Korean firm's televisions used a feature called "Motion Lighting" to reduce power consumption during lab tests in a way that would never happen in real life, therefore giving a false indication about how much power one can expect it to consume.Writing on the company's corporate blog, Samsung Tomorrow, the company strongly denied that it was attempting to trick test results - and that Motion Lighting was a normal part of TV operation.It said: "It is a standard out-of-the-box feature, which is switched on when the customer takes delivery of their TV, and remains on whenever the customer chooses to watch their TV in Standard viewing mode."Power balanceThe way Motion Lighting works is that when there is a lot ...

Wireless speakers have become essential gear for music lovers, running the gamut from portable Bluetooth devices to higher-end Wi-Fi systems from the likes of Denon and Samsung. Sitting atop all of them, however, is a company that’s been doing multi-room wireless audio for more than a decade — Sonos. Today it’s announcing two new products: an updated version of its flagship Play:5 speaker, and Trueplay, a software update that will let current and future Sonos owners custom-tune their speakers to sound ideal in any room, with any kind of placement.

Sonos is continuing to bet that the best way for it to differentiate itself is to provide a listening experience that is as close to what the artist intended in the studio as possible, and...

Although the iPhone’s ‘s’ models aren’t normally as hype-worthy as the full version upgrades, one thing you can always expect out of them is top notch performance. This year’s iPhone 6s, however, has the special honor of being as powerful as one of Apple’s newest laptops, the 2015 MacBook. John Gruber from Daring Fireball benchmarked the iPhone 6S using Geerkbench 3, a multi-platform testing tool designed to measure overall computer performance. Needless to say, the results are impressive. The phone’s A9 chip can outperform or beat the $1300 1.1 Ghz MacBook, and nearly go head to head with the 1.3Ghz model: Test iPhone 6s…

Apple Can Stop Samsung From Selling Phones – ReadWriteWeb

A U.S. federal appeals courts sided with Apple on Thursday, in a verdict that could block Samsung from issuing new devices that infringe on the iPhone company's patents.The ruling—which covers Apple patents for slide-to-unlock, autocorrect, and quicklinks—is the latest in a four-year legal tussle. A previous decision in May 2014 awarded Apple nearly $120 million in damages, but didn’t require the South Korean tech company to pull those features from its mobile devices. Apple appealed, hoping to cover what it viewed as a crucial hole in that decision. Apparently, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit in Washington agreed. According to the ruling:The right to exclude competitors from using one’s property rights is important. And the right to maintain exclusivity—a hallmark and crucial guarantee of patents rights deriving from the Constitution itself—is likewise important. Perhaps seeing the writing on the wall, Samsung has already removed ...

Amazon’s answer to Apple TV: a Fire TV box with Alexa and 4K video support – The Verge

Last week Apple sucked up most of the air in the tech press with its newest gadgets, which included a long-awaited, new Apple TV. This week, Amazon has some TV box news of its own.
The e-commerce giant just announced a variety of updates to its Fire TV product line. The newest Fire TV set-top box, a flat, plastic box that plugs into your TV and offers a variety of internet video content, now supports 4K Ultra HD video, a claim that Apple can't make with its own set-top box. (You'll have to be watching 4K content, on a 4K TV, to really reap the benefits of this, but at least the option is there.)
Amazon has also brought "Alexa," the popular cloud-based assistant found in the enigmatic Echo speaker, to the Fire TV through its...

With its small 205mAh battery, many expected the Apple Watch would need as much time on a charger as your wrist.

It wasn’t an individual product or service that stole the spotlight at Google I/O this year, but rather an idea. As Android continues to proliferate throughout the world, Google wants to find intelligent ways for mobile devices to interact with users, and from everything we’ve seen thus far, the company is on the right track. Although Apple is crushing everyone in its path with new sales records year after year, it has often struggled to compete with Google, Amazon and others when it comes to machine learning and predictive behavior. Now, based on key findings from Reuters, it looks like the company is doing everything in its power to get up to speed...

Les premières 24h, le volume avait atteint les 14 millions alors que Windows continue d'être distribué gratuitement par vagues auprès des utilisateurs éligibles. crédit : Brett Morrison Le mode de distribution choisi par Microsoft rend forcément délicate une comparaison directe avec les précédents lancements. 40 millions de mises à jour du mal aimé Windows 8 avaient été vendues en un mois et il avait fallu en attendre six pour atteindre les 100 millions.
