Rumor: Next iPhone lacks headphone connector – 99mac

The headphone jack of 3.5 millimeter can be the next thing that disappears from the iPhone to allow for thinner devices.

Apple plans to remove the headphone jack of 3.5 mm from the next year’s iPhone, commonly known as # Iphone 7. This reports the Japanese site Macotakara [Google-translated] and refers to ” reliable sources “. If the headphone is removed, the device would be “more than a millimeter thinner” than the current iPhone 6S.

If confirmed, would headphones only be connected to the iPhone 7 wirelessly via Bluetooth or via Lightning connector. Apple published last year, specifications for manufacture of headphones that use Lightning protocol during the program MFI (Made for iPhone). 99mac has also reported on a patent that suggests that Apple is developing wireless noise canceling headphones, which in future could replace today Earpods that come with the iPhone.

According to Macotakara, however, a special variant of Earpods to accompany Iphone 7, which connects directly via Lightning connector. The headphones will contain a small converter from digital to analog signals. Other manufacturers of headphones will need to include a Lightning connector, or an adapter from 3.5 millimeters for them to work with the phone.

Embark on a driverless ride in Tokyo – Swedish Dagbladet

The prototype car is a Nissan Leaf, which the entire cargo area is full of appliances that controls and regulates the self-driving technology. In five years, everything should be contained in a box the size of a video-game consoles. Photo: Eric Lund

We roll out into the Tokyo traffic. Everything is completely undramatic, except that the driver has released the steering wheel. The car rushes away almost soundlessly, because it is the Nissan Leaf electric car we travel in.

Soon approaching an intersection where the navigation screen shows we will turn left. The driver still has no hand on the wheel, and his feet rest from the brake and accelerator pedals. The car changes lanes, slow down in time for köslutet, biding his time at the red light, accelerates when the queue starts moving and then turn left onto New Street. Fully automatically.

All major automakers is working intensively with the technology that will make the cars self-propelled. At the motor show in Los Angeles recently, Volvo further steps in their research, and it’s race to first get a car that can run completely self – not only withstand relatively simple traffic queues.

American Tesla released recently new software for its electric cars, making them partially self-driving on highways. You call it a beta product, meaning that customers can join in and test a not yet fully developed technology.

Japanese Nissan’s plan is that in 2016 launch technology that will make the car yourself driving in queues, in 2018 technology manages highway driving, including on slip roads and 2020 technology that allows it to fend for itself, even in complex urban traffic.

Another must Nissan test driver have his hands documents prepared beside the wheel, but in the long run, the car should be able to take care of oneself as well as the motorway in city traffic. Photo: Eric Lund

It is a prototype to 2020 årstekniken we now test rides in Tokyo. The boot is packed full of devices that today are required to maneuver the car automatically, but in five years it should have been boiled down to a box the size of a video-game console.

– Our goal is that the price of the finished the product must be in the same district as today’s system for auto-braking and collision warning systems, says Richard Candler who is responsible for product strategy at Nissan. Not even the buyers of our cheapest models should have to hesitate to make the choice.

The overall purpose with self-driving cars is to reduce road accidents. The first steps have already been taken with the automatic braking system, which is standard in more and more vehicles. The more the car can manage on their own, the greater the safety profit as all calculations.

But there is also another aspect: many people like to drive, but few like getting tangled up in queues or heavy city traffic . In a self-driving car, the driver can engage in to see the film (which the automaker, of course, is financial gain in cooperation with the app and movie distributors) or use the time to work.

Nissan prototype has radar and laser sensors and twelve cameras that read the environment. The instruments in front of the driver – including a display projected on the windshield – always shows the vehicle’s intentions. Yet, however the driver to be ready for action in the Japanese traffic, legal requirements say that the hands must be kept near the steering wheel.

How can you trust that pedestrians do not suddenly absentmindedly starts to cross the street ?

The hardware is already well developed. What remains is programming. To follow filindelningar, read the traffic lights and turn right amount on the steering wheel may be complicated – but it is probably very simple in comparison with the millions of decisions a driver makes while driving.

Example: pedestrians walking on the sidewalk. How can we trust that he will not suddenly absentmindedly starts to cross the street? A van driver occupies almost unconsciously preparedness and relieves gas.

A car parked along the street: how can we know that not suddenly open the door? The experienced driver will probably take the turn a bit to round the parked car with a margin.

A street where there are hidden exits: which reduces a human driver at best speed to not be surprised if someone suddenly running or running out. It applies to the self-driving car also can identify these situations.

The car always shows the driver what is happening and how the planning run. Here we see that the car’s radar and cameras discovered the cars further ahead in the queue. Photo: Eric Lund

Another aspect is that the car must understand traffic culture. In some countries and cities tempo is low and forgiving, in other places it may require a little bit sharper elbows to keep up.

The car must understand traffic culture.

Anthropologists are hired to do research on these topics, and knowledge is converted into programming in the Autonomous körsystemen. Together with technologies are considering it, even if there should be a text display in which the environment can get messages from the car, for example, “I’m waiting,” or “Now I drive!”.

The test drive around the Tokyo Bay progresses as undramatic as it began. Prototype car can still only handle left turns (on the left), but all crossings and unexpected maneuvers from next to passing cars handled calmly.

– We are an entrepreneurial workshop in the media. We test, test, test. It does not work so we spend and test something new, says Douglas Roos.

The speed he believes is missing in the big media houses and take the Bonnier Group as an example.

– If Bonnier to do something, it’s like “20 Point of Contacts” before something happens. Then they have already lost the chance, says Douglas Roos in the podcast interview.

Comment: The film and television industry should be ashamed – Dagens Industri

Bredbandsbolaget freed from the film and television industry’s demands to block pirate site The Pirate Bay. It is good. A conviction could have unreasonable consequences.

“A severe grades of Swedish justice,” wrote film and television industry, commenting on Friday’s tingsrättsdom where Bredbandsbolaget freed from the requirement to block file-sharing site The Pirate Bay. In fact, the opposite is true.

Ultimately revolved namely the now completed the trial on a much larger issue: Should a network be held jointly responsible for the crimes committed in its own network?

Yes, said the loose coalition of film, music and television companies that stood behind the lawsuit, including Warner Music, Nordisk Film and the Swedish Film Industry . By not actively block pirate sites like The Pirate Bay enables telecom operators breach of copyright for huge sums of money.

No, said Bredbandsbolaget, which was the subject of the action.

The district court went completely on the defense line. It should not really have to be obvious right from the start. The principle of net neutrality – that operators have neither responsibility for, nor anything to do with the traffic that moves in their network – are quite central to the idea of ​​a free and open Internet.

Logically it would otherwise keep Trafikverket complicit speeding. Or electricity companies for crimes where electronics is involved.

Broadband Company representatives also warned purpose sliding. A conviction would open the doors for all sorts of lobby groups require blocking of sites that are considered to cause injury.

Friday’s statement is good news for all those who cherish a free and open internet. This applies to both file-sharers by the companies in the fast growing digital economy.

Certainly it is important to protect upphovsrättshavarnas right to get paid for their work. But the battle will be fought – as it already does – with claims and lawsuits against individuals and companies. Or even better: simpler, better and more modern services that make piracy obsolete. Half of Swedes pay today for any kind of music streaming service such as Spotify. 2.5 million of us even pay for streamed movie, for example via Netflix or Viaplay.

It should be said that the battle is far from won. Right holders will appeal the district court’s ruling. But Friday’s statement is still good news for those who cherish the free and open web. This applies tonårsfjuniga file sharers as well as companies in the fast growing digital economy. Many of them have business models that largely rests on operators’ indifference to what goes on in their network.

The film and television industry representatives on the other hand every reason to be ashamed . To even think of putting nätfriheten on the line to protect their own, outdated revenue models suggest a direct unworldly attitude.
