They move the finger scanner around, add variable aperture cameras, and garnish it all with a faster chipset, at much the same prices as last year, at least on US carriers. Perhaps that is why T-Mobile does the unboxing in low gravity, and even offers sample photos done with the S9 - you know, moonshots. This is a discussion for a news.

Google's X Lab is sort of the focused incarnation of Larry Page's "iterate fast and break things" philosophy of development. The X Lab is where you find the most ambitious products, but also the most secretive, because failing is an important part of the process. Now, head of the X Lab, Astro Teller, has teased a new "moonshot" coming from the team later this year.Although, the term "moonshot" could be interpreted a number of ways, it seems to us to just be a reference to the rumor that the X Lab was trying to build a ladder to the moon. The rumor was completely false, but the idea of "shooting for the moon" became something of a "mascot" to the team, according to Teller. The only information that Teller would give on the project is that it is "related to control systems". Other than that, he just said that Larry Page told the team when he approved the project to work so fast that they "break 5 prototypes". That's quite a pace.What do you guys think Google X Lab could be working … [Read more...] about Google X Lab to unveil a “moonshot” later this year

Peter27 (Posts: 233; Member since: 13 Jul 2012) maybe some big laser gun that can shoot and destroy the moon (or asteroids). maybe google with all that money is going to take over the world and become Dr evil. just kidding.. posted on 12 Mar 2013, 16:08 0 13.

Vice President Joe Biden today released his vision for doubling progress against cancer over 5 years. It includes numerous policy recommendations and a laundry list of projects by the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and other federal agencies that would require additional funding. Biden and his wife, Jill, have met with thousands of experts and patient advocates, they explain in a 17-page strategic plan submitted to President Barack Obama, who asked Biden in January to lead the effort. “We sought to better understand and break down the silos and stovepipes that prevent sharing of information and impede advances in cancer research and treatment, while building a focused and coordinated effort at home and abroad,” they explain. The Bidens’ wish list ranges from giving patients more control over their medical data to launching “a national conversation” about cancer drug pricing. They also want to see more high-risk research funding at NCI and changes to the … [Read more...] about Biden’s moonshot cancer plan calls for more data sharing
It’s Friday lunchtime. In a spacious meeting room inside Barcelona’s Diagonal Zero Zero tower, a disparate group of coders, engineers, data experts, designers and general thinkers have gathered over sandwiches to listen to a short presentation by a distinguished neuroscientist. His topic for the day is the cutting edge science that is mapping, with ever more accuracy, the brain activity that correlates with physical actions. Today, impulses from the brain are being used to enable patients to move and manipulate objects using robotic limbs. But with scientists beginning to understand the link between specific neurons lighting up and speech—even down to individual words and phrases—we are looking ahead to a world where humans may be communicating each other through a kind of machine-enabled telepathy or at the very least a thought driven man/machine interface.When the presentation comes to end, those in the room are divided up into groups and asked to come up with … [Read more...] about Is Google-inspired ‘moonshot factor’ a new model for tech R&D?
