    Raspberry Pi has introduced a new cheaper Raspberry Pi 3 Model A+ that uses the same Broadcom 1.4GHz Quad-core processor as the high-end Model B+. It also has support for Bluetooth 4.2 as well as 2.4GHz and 5GHz Wi-Fi and comes with 512MB LPDDR2 SDRAM. It no longer has an Ethernet port and has just one USB 2.0 port instead of four. The new model comes with improved USB mass-storage booting and improved thermal management. The entire board is certified as a radio module under FCC rules, which in turn will significantly reduce the cost of conformance testing Raspberry Pi–based products. It is powered by a 1.4GHz 64-bit ARM Cortex-A53 CPU Quad-Core processor with 512MB RAM. The company says that it will be available at a price tag of $25 (Rs.1,795 approx.). In India you can get it for about Rs. 2,150 (incl. GST).

    There are few products that manage to take a giant step forward with every successive iteration. Sony's 1000XM line of headphones is one such product that not only excels on their own but has taken the competition head-on.  The XM2 doubled battery but generally played it safe. With the WH-1000XM3 though, Sony has gone back to the drawing board and is making massive changes all around. What does it mean for the lineup? Find out in our review. In terms of design, Sony has completely re-engineered the headphone and the changes are almost universally positive. The headphone is flat out more comfortable to wear. From the pillowy faux-leather ear pads to the overall weight reduction, you can wear the MDR-1000XM3 for hours on end without any fatigue. During my testing period, I wore the headphone on flights, long bus rides and occasionally even when trying to sleep. There's more padding at the top which helps reduce pressure and Sony has reworked the design of the ear cups giving it a longer, more oval shape. The entire headphone now sits closer to the ears, which generally makes them more compact to carry around as well. Of course, like all the previous models, the ...

    Apple is said to be aggressively hiring engineers seeing designers with an aim to develop wireless components and processors that would weaken Qualcomm's chances of supplying chips for future iPhones. This month, Apple published 10 job listings on its website for chip design-related positions in San Diego. This marks the first time the Cupertino based technology giant has publicly recruited for such roles in the Southern California for chip design.

The company is said to be seeking hardware and software engineers to work on wireless components. It already houses chip designers in several locations, including in prime areas. The company has increased the number of components it designs itself over the lifetime of the iPhone giving it a chance to differentiate its flagship products from those made by rivals. This also gives Apple control over costs. To date, the company has released wireless chips for AirPods and the Apple Watch but hasn’t produced its own complete wireless systems for the iPhone. Apple is seeking engineers with experience in mainstream wireless protocols like LTE and Bluetooth. ...

    Microsoft is said to be planning on releasing a new hardware product which is an updated Xbox One console but won't be in the Scarlett devices which are next-gen consoles and are not expected until 2020 but in 2019. The company is planning to release a disc-less console.  However, if you have physical games lying around, Microsoft has a plan for that. It will have a ‘disc-to-digital’ program, which as the name states, turns your physical games into digital downloads. You will have to take your disc to a participating retailer and trade in your disc for a digital download. The goal with the new console is to lower the price point for the hardware. The current cost of the Xbox One is $299 and the company is looking to lower that price by possibly as much as $100; the new console price point is expected to be $200 or less. In addition, the company also has a revised Xbox One S SKU that is targeted for later in the year that focuses solely on cost reduction but does feature a disc-drive. As for Scarlett, Microsoft is still trying to decide if that console will include a disc drive but should be making the final decision very ...

Meaning, you and your friends can watch a synchronized video over group chat on your respective devices. The company is aiming to make users spend more time on Facebook Messenger while creating shared experiences that are more meaningful and positive. The feature was first spotted in Messenger’s codebase which describes Messenger allowing you to “tap to watch together now” and “chat about the same videos at the same time and Everyone in this chat can control the video and see who’s watching.” A Facebook spokesperson confirmed that this is an “internal test” and that it doesn’t have anymore to share right now. However, it is unclear where users would find videos to watch; it might allow you to enter the URL from Facebook or share a video from there to Messenger. The company might include a new video browsing option into the message composer or Discover tab. Facebook could allow the feature to work with video partners like YouTube. Co-viewing of videos could also introduce a new revenue opportunity for Messenger as well. It might suggest sponsored videos, such as recent movie trailers. Or it could simply serve video ads ...
