Fijian Government Selects EUTELSAT 172B for Providing Universal Television Access

This post was originally published on this site

PARIS &Walesi, the Fijian Government’s Digital Television infrastructure management company, has signed a multi year agreement with Eutelsat Communications (Euronext Paris ETL) that will for the first time expand free to air television throughout Fiji. The agreement covers C band capacity on the EUTELSAT 172B satellite to complement terrestrial coverage of the Walesi digital television platform.

Eutelsat’s new, all-electric satellite, now in full commercial service, will allow Walesi to provide digital free-to-air television via a Direct-to-Home (DTH) platform that will serve even the most remote, deep rural, and maritime areas of Fiji located beyond range of terrestrial networks. The platform will initially provide access to six digital free-to-air channels – with capacity to further expand – that will be accessible via a set-top box. Walesi will announce details regarding the DTH roll-out and Government-subsidised boxes in the coming weeks.

“This universal satellite coverage will be transformational for Fiji in three ways: it will provide better access to information to all Fijians, especially those in remote, deep rural, and maritime communities; it will further Fiji’s standing as an international telecommunications hub for the entire Pacific region; and it will fortify the climate resilience of our infrastructure,” said Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum, Fijian Attorney-General and Minister for Communications. “This is just the beginning; going forward, our partnership with Eutelsat will allow the Government to fulfil our vision of providing video, data, and voice access to every community in Fiji.”

Michel Azibert, Eutelsat’s Chief Commercial and Development Officer, added: “This agreement reflects not only the value of our new EUTELSAT 172B satellite in complex geographies such as Fiji, but also the immediate impact of satellite broadcasting for nationwide coverage of digital TV. We are delighted to be working with Walesi to promote access to free-to-air television for all and to be part of the effort to bridge the digital divide.”

About Walesi Walesi is a 100% government owned digital television infrastructure management company. Tasked with providing a nationwide digital television platform and associated infrastructure, Walesi is installing over 17 major communications and broadcast sites around Fiji which will be managed on a neutral host model. These major sites will be complemented by micro sites in remote and maritime regions that will be supported by bidirectional satellite capacity to expand data, video, and voice connectivity to previously unserved communities.

Wileyfox Pro quietly unveiled with Windows Phone

This post was originally published on this site

Have you seen 28 Days Later? In the opening scene the main character wakes up to find the city abandoned with no living soul in sight. We only bring it up because Amazon put up the Wileyfox Pro on pre-order, a Windows 10 phone. Aside from a few tottering zombies, Windows on phones is dead.

Wileyfox Pro runs Windows, wants to be a business phone Wileyfox Pro runs Windows, wants to be a business phone Wileyfox Pro runs Windows, wants to be a business phone
Wileyfox Pro runs Windows, wants to be a business phone

Not to be discouraged, the British phone maker armed the Pro with a 5” 720p screen, a quad-core processor and an 8MP camera. Memory-wise, the phone gets 2GB of RAM and 16GB storage. Not bad for… wait, £190?

Wileyfox Pro quietly unveiled with Windows Phone

Okay, okay, the Wileyfox Pro is targeted at businesses and the key selling point seems to be support until mid-2020. Note that this is for the software only, there doesn’t seem to be any extended warranty offered by Wileyfox.

Still, most Android makers obsolete their phones as if it was a competitive sport so extended software updates may be desirable to business owners looking to buy company phones. Follow the Source link if you’re interested, Amazon will start shipping on December 4.

MovieBob Reviews: COCO (2017)

This post was originally published on this site

Is Coco good?
Very good.

What’s it about?
The story concerns a Mexican boy named Miguel Rivera who dreams of being a musician but faces fierce opposition from his extended family, a generational collective of shoemakers who disdain and forbid all music owing to having been founded by an iron-willed matriarch. The footwear entrepreneurship found salvation after her husband left home to become a musician himself and never returned. Through a series of plot complications, Miguel comes to believe that his absentee great-great grandfather is actually Ernesto de la Cruz, a celebrity musician who famously died young. And in attempting to prove this, finds himself trapped by a curse in the Afterlife during Dia de Los Muertos; the Mexican holiday wherein passage between the living and dead worlds is traversable under certain circumstances.

So it’s similar to The Book of Life from a few years ago?
Only very broadly. Apart from both using supernatural characters rendered in the style of Dia de los Muertos decorations the two aren’t actually very similar. Whereas Book of Life was very much about its supernatural mythology, Coco ends up being an intimate family drama where – apart from the sight gags and otherworldly adventure business, obviously – the afterlife plot device is ultimately a way to tell a story about a kid confronting his own family history in literal terms.

How so?
Once crossed-over, Miguel is quickly discovered there by the skeletal spirits of his ancestors, who are able to send him back but want to do so with the condition that he foreswear his musical ambitions. So he embarks on a quest to find de la Cruz, whom he believes can be more helpful in that regard – enlisting help from a skeleton hustler named Hector who has an agenda of his own.

I heard there was some controversy here?
At one point it was going to be called “Dia de los Muertos,” and Disney filed a copyright for the title. Obviously, this did not go over well at all with people in Mexico and throughout Latin America who’ve been celebrating the Holiday for several centuries. Disney eventually reversed course.

What sets it apart from other animated movies this year?
The decisive grounding in Mexican popular culture and folklore gives all of the proceedings a refreshing sense of identity apart from prior variations on the same kind of story. It’s not just a matter of Disney/Pixar borrowing a setting and a culturally-specific holiday, the storyline and Miguel’s journey through it allows for what’s effectively a walking tour of Mexico’s lasting contributions to art, music, movies sports and popular culture… but in a way that feels genuine and “lived” as opposed to just grabbing the well-known stuff – including some surprise cameos (sort of) by the Afterlife versions of historical figures I… can safely say I never expected to see in a Disney movie.

How does it compare to other recent Pixar movies?
At this point I feel like we’re reaching the point where comparing each new Pixar movie to where it might fit into the “canon” with the others has become kind of a pointless exercise – I mean, this isn’t some small artisanal operation anymore, if it ever was one… but for what it’s worth I’d say Coco is easily the best since Inside Out even though I didn’t have any real issue with Finding Dory or Cars 3. What IS kind of nice is that it feels like the first Western animated movie in forever that doesn’t feel like the need to merchandise played a strong role in the production. I’m sure there WILL be merchandise, and I don’t have anything against that per-say, it’s just a refreshing change to see something and NOT immediately be able to pick out which supporting character is trying to be this year’s Minions.

Is this one of those Pixar movies that will make me cry?
I did.

Deal: LG G6 for £363 on Amazon

This post was originally published on this site

The V30 may be the hottest LG phone these adys, but the LG G6, introduced in February, is still a pretty solid device. And now you can own one for as low as £363.20 on Amazon.

Deal: LG G6 for £390 on Amazon

This is a 42% discount from the original asking price for a 32 GB unit in either Astro Black or Platinum Ice color. Sure, it’s the smaller memory option, but LG G6 has a microSD that can take up to 256 GB storage.

With a great camera and one of the first 18:9 ratio screens, the LG G6 sure sounds like a steal if you can overlook the fact that it’s rocking a Snapdragon 821 chipset, which was last year’s top dog.

eBay has the best Xbox One S Black Friday deal out there

This post was originally published on this site

eBay on Monday shared with the world its Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals, which contain plenty of exciting discounts on electronics and gadgets, among other things. eBay’s deals start on Thanksgiving Day and run through Cyber Monday — here are the full ads for eBay’s sales events.

But the retailers waited until Thursday to unveil what’s possibly the best Xbox One S deal we’ve seen this Black Friday shopping season.

If you’ve been following our Black Friday deals coverage, then you probably know that most electronics retailers out there run console promos on Black Friday and Cyber Monday. This year, the cheapest consoles from Sony and Microsoft cost around $200, give or take a few bucks. That’s the PS4 and Xbox One S, respectively, if you’re keeping track. The PS4 Pro and Xbox One X, meanwhile, are the more expensive consoles that you can buy this holiday season.

So, how much is eBay charging for an Xbox One S console? Just $169.99, which is $110 lower than the regular $279.99 price, and slightly cheaper than all the other Black Friday deals. Microsoft sells it for $189, which is a great deal. eBay didn’t even include this Xbox One S promo in its official Black Friday flyer, so the only way to get it is by following this link. You should also save the link in case you want to try to price-match the deal at other stores.

Microsoft, meanwhile, has its own Xbox deals, available at this link. You should also check our list of discounted Xbox One games available in stores this Black Friday season.

Aquantia to Sell Its 5G and 10G Network Cards for $59 and $69 on Black Friday

This post was originally published on this site

Aquantia got a lot of positive publicity this year with its relatively inexpensive 5G and 10G network cards, which brought multi-gigabit Ethernet down to around $100, making them some two-to-three times cheaper than earlier NICs. On Black Friday, the company is going to slash prices of its cards even further to $59 – $69 per unit, making these the cheapest multi-gigabit NICs to date.

Aquantia’s AQN-107 and AQN-108 network cards are based on the company’s AQC107 (10 GbE) and AQC108 (5 GbE) multi-gigabit network controllers. The more affordable AQN-108 card uses a PCIe 3.0 x1 interface and supports various BASE-T standards, including 100M, 1G, 2.5G and 5G over an RJ45 connector using Cat5e/Cat6 cabling. The more advanced AQN-107 card features a PCIe 3.0 x4 interface and supports all of the aforementioned standards as well as 10G. The cards are compatible with various contemporary and legacy PCs running Windows 7/8/10 or Linux 3.2/3.6/4.2/4.4.

On Black Friday, November 24, the Aquantia AQtion AQN-108 5G NIC will be sold for $59, down from its regular price of $99. The AQtion AQN-107 10G NIC will be available for an $69, down from $127 regularly. This promotion is only going to work with Aquantia’s international distributors — Arrow, WPGA and WPI, but not regular retailers (see direct links to the cards on websites of the said companies in the table below).

Aquantia AQtion Multi-Gigabit NICs
Card AQN-107 AQN-108
Controller AQC-107 AQC-108
100BASE-T Yes Yes
1000BASE-T Yes Yes
2.5GBASE-T Yes Yes
5GBASE-T Yes Yes
10GBASE-T Yes No
Ports 1 1
MSRP $127 $99
Black Friday Promo Price $69 $59
Buy from Distributors Arrow
WPGA
WPI

WPI

It is not unusual for various companies to sell their products at bargain prices on Black Friday, however such a deep discount on a recently launched product is a bit more atypical. Keeping in mind that the AQN-107 and AQN-108 network cards were released only several months ago and are up to date (and you do not expect NIC developers to introduce new models every year), it is clear that $59 – $69 per unit are price points that Aquantia is comfortable with, and that this isn’t a Black Friday close-out sale. It’s probably a bit premature to make predictions regarding future retail prices of Aquantia-based multi-gigabit network adapters from partners like ASUS and GIGABYTE (who want to earn on their products), but it is safe to say that the multi-gig cards can get cheaper than they are now.

While multi-gigabit Ethernet cards for $59 – $69 look very affordable (by today’s standards), multi-gigabit switches still remain rather expensive. We have been monitoring pricing and availability of 10 GbE-supporting switches at leading U.S. retailers for several months now and it turns out that the least expensive model is still the ASUS XG-U2008 10GBase-T (two 10 GbE ports, eight GbE connectors) that is available for $220 from Amazon and Newegg. Perhaps, Black Friday will bring some sweeter deals.

OnePlus 5T wins charging sprint in latest ad

This post was originally published on this site

One of the best features on the OnePlus 5T is Dash Charge – it makes other other phones feel painfully slow to charge. The company decided to highlight that in its new add – how much will the phone charge in 30 minutes with the screen on?

The 5T phone got from 2% to 57% in that half hour. Which is pretty much in line with our own tests, we got to 65% in the same time, but with the screen off. How did certain competing flagships stack up? Not that great.

Check out the video, it only takes a minute:

Of course, to be fair we need to take into account the battery capacities of the phones involved. The OnePlus 5T does not have the biggest battery here, the Galaxy S8+ and Pixel 2 XL are essentially even here. The 5T does have the fastest charger though. Here’s a table for easy comparison

Phone Battery Charge (in 30min) In box charger
OnePlus 5T 3,300mAh 57% 20W
iPhone 8 Plus 2,691mAh 16% 5W (!)
Samsung Galaxy S8+ 3,500mAh 17% 15W
Google Pixel 2 XL 3,520mAh 11% 10.5W

Early Galaxy S9 leaks show Samsung can’t copy the iPhone fast enough

This post was originally published on this site

A report from a noteworthy insider said on Wednesday that the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ will be nearly identical to their predecessors when it comes to the design. However, it also highlighted one unexpected detail about the upcoming pair of high-end Galaxy phones. The Galaxy S9+ and the Galaxy S9 will not offer the same set of features, something that will annoy some of the loyal fans out there.

The report also seems to suggest Samsung needed more than a year to replicate Apple’s recent success and strategy, and may further fall behind its biggest rival.

The iPhone is still a major source of inspiration for Samsung, and while Galaxy phones may debut some features before Apple incorporates them into its flagship device, it’s always Samsung that’s expected to follow Apple’s lead. And Samsung usually delivers.

After tweeting that the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ will be itteratie upgrades, Evan Blass shared more details on VentureBeat about the two phones, including the unexpected revelation that the Galaxy S9+ will have a dual lens camera on the back and more RAM, while the Galaxy S9 will only get a single lens cam.

That’s what Apple did with the iPhone 7 last year, equipping the supersized smartphone with a dual camera and extra RAM to handle the Portrait Mode functionality. Samsung was not able to add a dual lens camera to the Galaxy S8, even though it tried to do it, and only introduced one such camera setup with the Galaxy Note 8 that launched almost a year after the iPhone 7 Plus.

From the looks of it, equipping a dual cam on the Galaxy S9 might still be a pretty challenging endeavor. Either that, or Samsung is looking to raise the average selling price of the Galaxy S line by restricting some features to the bigger model.

The Galaxy S9’s dual cam will be available some 18 months after Apple launched its own dual camera handset. But since then, Apple found a way to equip a dual camera on a smartphone about as big as the iPhone 7. And the iPhone X brings several other novel features, like an incredibly fast processor that has no rival in the Android world, and a facial recognition system that uses 3D technology to offer security that trumps Touch ID.

These are features that won’t be available on a Galaxy phone for some time to come. Recent leaks suggested the Galaxy S9’s chips won’t be able to match the power of the A11 Bionic. As for a Face ID equivalent from Samsung, you should not expect one on the Galaxy S9, reports said. Samsung may equip 3D sensors on other 2018 handsets, with the Galaxy Note 9 being a likely candidate.

Finally, what’s also interesting is that Samsung will stick with 3.5mm headphone jacks for at least one more year. By now, it should be fairly safe to ditch the aging jack without having to face too much backlash. Keeping the port may also be an indication that Samsung’s AirPods aren’t ready for mass consumption just yet. The norm seems to be that if you do plan to murder the 3.5mm jack, the least you could do is launch wireless headphones of your own.

That doesn’t mean the Galaxy S9 will not be a compelling device, or that it should be ignored because it’s a minor upgrade over the Galaxy S8. That’s hardly the point. But these early reports seem to indicate that Samsung is having a harder time “copying” the iPhone than before, and some of the things you see on a brand new iPhone won’t be available almost immediately on the next Galaxy S model. And yes, Samsung could very well refrain from replicating iPhone features every year. It’s just that many customers may expect Samsung phones to do everything an iPhone can, and perhaps even more.

Mysterious Sony Xperia ZG Compact appears again on Geekbench

This post was originally published on this site

Back in August, several Sony Xperia ZG Compact listings appeared in the Geekbench database. Now, the phone makes another appearance with slightly different scores.

Mysterious Sony Xperia ZG Compact appears again on Geekbench

Both scores are a bit lower than the results in August, and a lot lower than the Xperia Z5 Compact results with Snapdragon 810 from 2015.

It is highly unlikely Sony is building a phone with such an old chipset, especially when the Xperia XZ1 Compact came out in August with Snapdragon 835.

There are two possible explanations for this. For one, the device name may have been falsified and all of this is just someone feeding fans false hopes. Alternatively, this could be a device of lower standing, compared to the XZ1 Compact, and so it’s running older hardware. Smart money is on the first version, but you never know.
