Rogers BlackBerry KEYone receives update starting tomorrow; focus is on bugs, not security

A leaked internal document reveals that starting tomorrow, July 17th, the Rogers branded version of the BlackBerry KEYone will receive an update. Unlike other handsets in the Rogers family that are receiving updates tomorrow (such as the Moto G4 Plus, Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+), the new files being sent to the KEYone are related to bug fixes instead of security.

The issues that need to be addressed by the update are apparently related to the Rogers’ network. Early last month, several Rogers subscribers complained about their inability to receive incoming phone …


'Destiny 2' introduces a new raid with a very specific focus

TwitterFacebook

Luke Smith, the director of Destiny 2 and one of the key architects behind the series, looks at all of the raids to date as his children.

“I love all of them and they’re all unique in their own way,” he said during an E3 interview.

Smith led the raid team across the finish line with Vault of Glass, and he’s continued to work closely with Gavin Irby — who took over after Smith leveled up to Game Director — on one of Destiny‘s signature features. The six-player co-op activities — which, fundamentally, are hours-long group puzzles — are widely acknowledged as the sprawling game’s most unpredictable and play-changing activities. Read more…

Apple is enlarging its Seattle engineering center to focus on machine learning and AI

Apple, usually famous for being a very secretive corporation, has made a rather interesting revelation this Thursday. Carlos Guestrin, a University of Washington professor, former Turi CEO, and now director of machine learning at Apple, announced that the company will be expanding its offices in Seattle:

We’re trying to find the best people who are excited about AI and machine learning – excited about research and thinking long term but also bringing those ideas into products that impact and delight our customers… The bar is high, but we’re going to be hiring …

Samsung Galaxy S6 speed and productivity focus

With around two weeks to go until the start of the 2015 Mobile World Congress, we will finally learn if all the rumors in regard to the Samsung Galaxy S6 turn out to be true or not. We can safely say that many of them will not, although a handful seem rather plausible, such as this latest one that discusses how to improve its speed and productivity.

There is no denying that the Galaxy S range of phones pack a punch in terms of power, but its software usually holds it back. We often feel as though these range of handsets enter the smartphone market as if it were in a three-legged race, as its bloatware hampers it from the start, something Apple does not have with its iPhone.

Samsung-Galaxy-S6-speed-and-productivity

However, don’t expect this to happen with the Galaxy S6, as we are being told that the bloatware that often slows things up and takes up space may not be there. SamMobile has learned that Samsung could be about to remove a ton of its pre-installed software, and while it will still come with its TouchWiz, it is said that the S6 performs just as fast as a Nexus device now.

That is such a big claim, although removing a ton of apps and giving the user the opportunity to download them at their own leisure is surely a far better option.

However, to help improve productivity, the Galaxy S6 will come pre-loaded with a selection of Microsoft apps, such as Office, OneNote, OneDrive and even Skype.

We already feel as though we know so much about the Galaxy S6, such as its rumored design, specs and even what sort of cases we can expect. However, with MWC 2015 fast approaching, it is not long until some of these rumors will be debunked.
