Japan its own enemy in improving cybersecurity


japan's efforts to improve data security are being hobbled by a widespread corporate culture that views security breaches as a loss of face, leading to poor disclosure of incidents or information sharing at critical moments.


OKINAWA: Apart from rogue hackers, criminal organizations or even state-backed cyberwarfare units, Japan's businesses and government agencies are facing a unique cybersecurity foe: themselves.

Even with the frequency and severity of cyberattacks booming worldwide, efforts by the world's No. 3 economic power to improve its data security are being hobbled by a widespread corporate culture that views security breaches ..

Google is trying to fix biggest problem with Android


Google is negotiating deals with chipmakers to help solve fragmentation, one of the biggest problems with Android, The Information reports. By working directly with chip partners, Google is looking to create hardware that will work seamlessly with Android, just as Apple products do with iOS.

The fragmentation of Android is a real issue for Google, phone markers, and users, who have to deal with outdated hardware, poor security, and a sub-standard experience. According to one estimate, there are over 18,700 distinct versions of Android compared to Apple's five or six.


Google is seeking a more Apple-like approach, combining core functionality of the phone onto one chip. In the negotiations, Google asked chipmakers for a more sophisticated camera unit, improved on-board memory, and more power efficiency.If Google manages to solve this conundrum, however, it could lead to an overall better Android experience for users that would place high-end Samsung, HTC, and Huawei devices in line with the iPhone.

IPhone @Steve zobbs

When the definitive history of the personal computer is written, familiar and historic names such as Olivetti, Apple, IBM, will all be given recognition for their innovations of the 1960s and 1970s.


But will future generations remember visionary John Blankenbaker, and his ground-breaking invention, the Kenbak-1 Digital Computer?


It was an machine which first went on sale in 1971 and is considered to have been the world's first "commercially available personal computer", coming on to the market some five years before Apple 1.

In fact it was a panel of experts, including Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, meeting at the Boston Computer Museum in 1987, which gave the Kenbak-1 its pre-eminent status.

Back in 1970 Mr Blankenbaker, then a computer engineer and consultant, put together his machine at his home in Brentwood, California.

AuraVisor virtual reality headset has built-in computer


26 October 2015 Last updated at 10:51 GMT


A York-based virtual reality start-up believes it has spotted a gap in the market and is seeking the public's support to get it into production.


The AuraVisor headset includes a built-in computer and a wi-fi chip, allowing its maker to offer a "wireless" solution.


It is set to be cheaper than high-end kit set for launch over the coming months that will require a PC or video games console to work.


However, those wishing to dip their toes into VR might get a cheaper and higher-quality experience by using headsets that make use of a slotted-in smartphone.


Rory Cellan-Jones quizzed AuraVisor's founder James Talbot about its prospects as the company prepares to launch a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter.

A new age by Activision , popular for ©all of duty

Activision Blizzard, maker of the Call of Duty video game, announced it will make original films and TV series.


The newly formed Activision Blizzard Studios will base the shows and movies on the company's games.


It plans to release a TV series based on Skylanders Academy in 2016 and films based of the military videogame Call of Duty starting in 2018 or 2019.


The firm made the announcement during its annual fan convention called BlizzCon.


Nick van Dyk co-president of Activision Blizzard Studios said the studio would deliver the "action that fans expect from this franchise".


"We'll have a fraction of the overhead of the typical studio since we're starting with a blank page and building an organization that is right-sized for our intended creative output and for the future of the industry," he said.


Branching out


Activision already had plans to release a film based on its game franchise Warcraft in 2016 through a partnership with Legendary Pictures.


It is a further effort by the company to expand beyond games for games consoles.


On Monday Activision announced plans to buy mobile phone game maker King Digital Entertainment, the creator of Candy Crush.


That deal is valued at $5.9bn (£3.9bn).
