​SK Telecom and Samsung to collaborate on 5G for enterprise

Published

on

SK Telecom and Samsung will collaborate in 5G research and development as South Korea gears up for the imminent rollout of the next-generation network.

Specifically, the two will collaborate in mobility enhancement for 3.5GHz and 28GHz millimetre-wave (mmWave) spectrum bands, widen coverage, and enhance 5G use cases.

South Korean telecommunication carriers are expected to deploy 5G for consumers in March next year, but enterprise clients will start using the network in trials next month.

28GHz has a wide spectrum but short distance, while 3.5GHz is the opposite. The two companies will build tech to utilise both, in order to increase data transfer rates and distances.

The two will also build tech to widen the coverage of 28GHz mmWave spectrum.

SK Telecom said these developments will help augmented reality, UHD videos, and autonomous vehicles services deploy seamlessly.

The South Korean telecommunications carrier was the first to announce its preferred bidders for 5G equipment; it chose Samsung, Nokia and Ericsson while excluding Huawei. Later, compatriot KT also chose the three companies, while LG Uplus included the Chinese vendors.

SK Telecom and Samsung are also close partners in the development of 5G standalone equipment.

Earlier this month, Samsung said the second 5G standard, Release 16, will be set next year in December to pave the way for autonomous vehicles and smart factories.

Indiana Is The First State To Sue TikTok Over Child Safety Worries

Published

on

To tech-savvy and/or historically informed readers, the widespread concern about TikTok in the U.S. might smack of earlier moral panics. As mental health nonprofit Take This reports, it’s a matter of record that social media, video and tabletop games, clothing choices, music genres, and virtually anything else enjoyed by the young have been excoriated by American elders on one moral basis or another.

At the same time, serious questions have been raised about the safety of TikTok as a platform. We’ve reported in the past about the successes and failures of TikTok’s content moderation, from its largely hands-off, algorithmic approach to managing content to the borderline unethical treatment experienced by the human moderators the platform does possess. Content capable of generating severe psychological trauma in adult professional content managers certainly shouldn’t be emerging in children’s feeds.

Moderation and data security are also inescapably entwined. Hands-off moderation doesn’t just threaten the possibility of traumatic content in users’ feeds; it allows for sharing media at least some users are likely to see as unethical if not illegal. Add that to the documented pressures that Chinese law puts on social media platforms and it starts to seem like the Indiana lawsuit, right or wrong, at least has some kind of grounding.

Still, TikTok has answered critics and survived plenty of tough talk from the previous presidential administration. Whether it can continue to do so will depend both on the commitment of the platform’s user base and its ability to adapt to the requirements of American law.

How Fast Is The Electric Harley-Davidson Motorcycle Really?

Published

on

According to Livewire, the ONE has some impressive speed and acceleration numbers, going from 0-60 mph in just three seconds and topping out at 110 mph. Sure, 110 mph doesn’t seem awfully fast, but Harley-Davidson motorcycles were never known for being fast. According to testing by CycleWorld, the Livewire ONE lives up to its reputation, accelerating from 0-60 mph in 3.1 seconds — a fraction of a second slower than the marketed number.

Interestingly, in terms of acceleration, the Livewire ONE is second only to the FXDR 114, which has a 0-60 mph time of only 2.5 seconds, according to Harley Davidson of Kingwood. Being quick off the line is par for the course for an electric motorcycle, though — there are no gears to cycle through, and electric motor torque is usually much higher at low RPM. The highest top speed for a production Harley-Davidson bike also goes to the FXDR 114, which tops out at a respectable 160 mph, according to Peterson’s Harley-Davidson. As far as the Livewire ONE’s 110 mph top speed, that’s par for the course for Harley-Davidson, with most everything except for the FXDR 114.

The Most Luxurious Features Of Mariah Carey’s 1.8 Million Dollar RV

Upon entering you are immediately met by a makeup station with an oversized mirror ringed by “true” makeup lights. On the opposite wall behind the seat is an offset television so the Queen of Christmas can watch her favorite program (through the mirror) while getting properly primped. Dark wood lines the floors, top and bottom (via HotCars). 

This segues into a lounge with a curvy 15-foot custom couch ($7,000) and a 65″ Samsung 9000 connected to a Genelec studio-grade 5.1 surround sound system. The left side slides out 35 feet while the right slides out 25 feet to create a 600-square-foot space for her entourage.

The full gourmet kitchen includes a convection microwave, two-burner induction stove top, Sub-Zero hideaway fridge, and a $4,000 LeveLuk SD501 Platinum Kangen water system. Granite stairs lead from the kitchen to a second floor, where the roof pop-ups via hydraulics to reveal what designer RJ Anderson calls a “skyscraper on wheels” (per Daily Mail via AOL Celebrity Motor Homes).

Huge windows run down each side of the bus providing a nearly 360-degree uninterrupted panoramic view, while a 35-foot wrap-around couch seats 30 people. Not only can the lights be dimmed, but it comes with a color wheel that can turn the area into a proverbial nightclub. Big 60-inch televisions on either end of the room round out the entertainment area (via AOL Celebrity Motor Homes).

Anderson Mobile Estates also operates the 7744 Ranch, a resort outside Austin, Texas, where anyone can book a stay in a previously-owned-by-a-celebrity motor home. One of the five listed is “The Lounge.” However, a promotional video not only says it once belonged to Jennifer Lopez (not Mariah Carey) but looks precisely like Mariah Carey’s from the 2005 “Access Hollywood” segment. 

Now, all we really want for Christmas is some clarification in this great camper caper.
