Leaked dongle hints at end of the headphone jack on Galaxy Note

first_imgA leaked adapter signals the possible end of the headphone jack on the Galaxy Note 10.  Roland Quandt The headphone jack on phones had a good run, but like all good things, it eventually must end. That end seems to have finally arrived with Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Note 10 line. After being one of the last holdouts against the trend of ditching the headphone jack, it appears that Samsung is going to do just that for the Note 10 line. In leaked images shared Thursday by Roland Quandt and SamMobile, it seems pretty clear Samsung is planning a 3.5mm headphone jack to USB-C dongle for its new Note 10 and 10 Plus.  Aug 31 • iPhone 11, Apple Watch 5 and more: The final rumors Apple • Share your voice Samsung Galaxy Note 10 (Plus) #donglelife pic.twitter.com/FmXsMkvF9h— Roland Quandt (@rquandt) August 1, 2019 Aug 31 • Your phone screen is gross.

But it signals the end of an era, showing that Samsung may indeed be planning to move on without the port going forward. It is unclear if Samsung will include the dongle in the box (like Google) or charge separately for it (like Apple). That answer, as well as Samsung’s heavily rumored and leaked next flagships, will likely need to wait until Samsung’s Unpacked event on Aug. 7. Samsung didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.  reading • Leaked dongle hints at end of the headphone jack on Galaxy Note 10 Tags Aug 31 • iPhone XR vs. iPhone 8 Plus: Which iPhone should you buy?

VR lets you fire a virtual employee to practice doing it in

first_imgThis is your chance to learn how to fire people the right way. Talespin Poor Barry Thompson is about to get fired, and you’re the unfortunate one shouldered with lowering the ax. You might not feel sorry for Barry given he’s virtual. But the idea is that firing him in VR will help prepare you if you ever need to terminate someone who isn’t made of pixels.Barry is the creation of Talespin, a VR company that develops virtual- and augmented-reality training programs for Fortune 500 partners including Farmers Insurance and telecom and finance companies. The company introduced Barry to demonstrate its “Virtual Human Technology.”What it looks like to fire an employee in VR.  GIF by Leslie Katz/CNET “The premise behind the software is giving employees a safe space to practice challenging interpersonal situations, while using AI to create emotionally realistic characters to stimulate and challenge them,” says Kyle Jackson, CEO and co-founder of Talespin. The company, which is based in Southern California and The Netherlands, built Barry using speech recognition, AI, natural language processing, gamified scoring, dynamic feedback and enterprise learning management system, or LMS, integration. He can fluidly converse with the real person wearing the VR headset, display realistic emotion and understand context.The highly realistic-looking Mr. Thompson has gray hair and bags under his eyes and looks like he’s probably put a whole lot of years into the company. His reaction to the bad news varies depending on how you handle the situation. In some scenarios, he gets angry and yells, in others he cries. If you handle his firing well, he calmly accepts the news.Barry is not taking the news well. GIF by Leslie Katz/CNET “Users that elicit the more dramatic or emotional responses from Barry can learn from the experience and try to do better next time,” Jackson says.Talespin’s virtual humans give trainees the chance to practice other challenging interpersonal situations with colleagues and co-workers, such as giving managerial feedback, negotiating and making a sale.In one sales scenario, for example, the CEO of a company you’re trying to sell your firm’s services to has her arms crossed, looks away as you explain why you’re there, and says you won’t get the full time requested for the meeting. You have to rely on your training to overcome her disinterest and unlock different parts of the conversation where you can be successful. Talespin isn’t the only company creating VR training content for workers. Thousands of Walmart employees have donned Oculus Go virtual reality headsets for a training program created by Strivr, which also counts Verizon, Fidelity and United Rentals among its customers.”When you watch a module through the headset, your brain feels like you actually experienced a situation,” Andy Trainor, Walmart’s senior director of Walmart US Academies, said when announcing the program last year.Or, as Talespin’s Jackson puts it, “Virtual humans can help us become better humans.”Now, can someone please hook Barry up with a new job?Originally published Aug. 14.  Why using VR to teach you to fire someone isn’t completely… See It How To • Prime Day 2019 best gaming deals: Oculus Go 32GB for $159, Nintendo Switch for $329 and more available now Now playing: Watch this: Best Buy 2:47 Walmart will use Oculus Go headsets to train employees VR is now helping teach midwives to deliver babies This VR simulator might help you survive a bear attack More on VR training $199 Virtual Reality Artificial intelligence (AI) Comments Tags Culturecenter_img $198 $199 Walmart CNET may get a commission from retail offers.

As our sister site TechRepublic suggests, VR could be the future of sexual harassment training in the workplace since it’s more immersive than HR-based classes or slideshow and video presentations and lets users feel what’s it like to be harassed.”The immersive properties and rich, consistent contextual cues associated with VR improve the quality and speed of initial learning,” according to Training Industry. “One strength of VR is that it can be implemented in such a way as to target [both] the behavioral skills system and the cognitive skills system.” See It News • Flash sale: The Oculus Go VR headset is back down to $159 (Update: Expired) Share your voicelast_img read more

Motorola adds 5G compatibility to a 2017 phone if you buy the

first_img Phones Lenovo 130-15AST 15.6-inch laptop: $210 (save $90) 5G Motorola,I’m shocked — shocked! — to learn that stores are turning Labor Day into an excuse to sell stuff. Wait — no, I’m not. As much as I respect the original intent of the holiday (which became official back in 1894), to most of us, it’s just a bonus day off — one that’s blissfully tacked onto a weekend. So, yeah, stores; go ahead, run your sales. I’m listening. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Labor Day doesn’t bring out bargains to compete with the likes of Black Friday (which will be here before you know it), but there are definitely some sales worth your time.For example:We’ve rounded up the best Labor Day mattress deals.We’ve also gathered the best Labor Day laptop deals at Best Buy.The 2019 Vizio P Series Quantum is back under $999.Be sure to check out Amazon’s roughly three dozen Labor Day deals on TVs and audio. Google Express is having a big sale as well, one that includes deals on game consoles, AirPods, iPhones, laptops and more.Below I’ve rounded up a handful of individual items I consider to be the cream of the crop, followed by a handy reference guide to other Labor Day sales. Keep in mind, of course, that products may sell out at any time, even if the sale itself is still running. Note that CNET may get a share of revenue from the sale of the products featured on this page. Apple iPhone XS Apple AirPods with Wireless Charging Case: $155 (save $45) Read DJI Osmo Action preview The problem with most entry-level laptops: They come with mechanical hard drives. That makes for a mighty slow Windows experience. This Lenovo model features a 128GB solid-state drive, so it should be pretty quick to boot and load software, even with its basic processor. Plus, it has a DVD-burner! That’s not something you see in many modern laptops, especially at this price.

Oooh, ahhh, indeed. At $250, the compact Rylo dual-lens camera is selling for its lowest price yet. And for an extra $50, you can get the bundle that includes the waterproof housing.This deal runs through Sept. 3; it usually costs $500. $520 at HP Read Lenovo Smart Clock review Though not technically a Labor Day sale, it’s happening during Labor Day sale season — and it’s too good not to share. Nationwide Distributors, via Google Express, has just about the best AirPods deal we’ve seen (when you apply promo code ZBEDWZ at checkout). This is for the second-gen AirPods with the wireless charging case. Can’t imagine these will last long at this price, so if you’re interested, act fast. Sarah Tew/CNET See It 0:57 $999 Lenovo Smart Clock: $59.99 (save $20) $6 at Tidal Boost Mobile Spotify and most other streaming services rely on compressed audio, which robs the listener of full fidelity. Enter Tidal, the only “major” service that delivers lossless audio — meaning at least on par with CD quality, if not better. Want to see (er, hear) the difference for yourself? Grab this excellent extended trial while you can. It’s just $6 for three months, and it’s good for up to six listeners. 7 Free Echo Dot with an Insignia or Toshiba TV (save $50) Google Nest Hub: $59 (save $70) Chris Monroe/CNET $60 at Best Buy See It Formerly known as the Google Home Hub, Google’s Nest Hub packs a wealth of Google Assistant goodness into a 7-inch screen. At $59, this is within a buck of the best price we’ve seen. It lists for $129 and sells elsewhere in the $89-to-$99 range.This is one item of many available as part of eBay’s Labor Day Sale (which, at this writing, doesn’t specifically mention Labor Day, but that’s how it was pitched to us). DJI’s answer to GoPro’s action cameras is rugged little model that’s shockproof, dustproof and waterproof down to 11 meters. It normally runs $350, but this deal drops it to $261 when you apply promo code 19LABOR10 at checkout.

I’ve used it many times and found it a great alternative to traditional car-rental services — in part because you get to choose exactly the vehicle you want (not just, say, “midsize”) and in part because you can often do pickup and dropoff right outside baggage claim.Between now and Sept. 1, the first 300 people to check out can get $30 off any Turo rental with promo code LDW30. Other Labor Day sales you should check out Best Buy: In addition to some pretty solid MacBook deals that have been running for about a week already, Best Buy is offering up to 40% off major appliances like washers, dryers and stoves.

JBL Soundgear wearable speaker: $90 (save $160) I thought this might be a mistake, but, no, the weirdly named HP Laptop 15t Value is indeed quite the value at this price. Specs include an Intel Core i7 processor, 12GB of RAM, a 256GB solid-state drive and a 15.6-inch display. However, I strongly recommend paying an extra $50 to upgrade that display to FHD (1,920×1,080), because you’re not likely to be happy with the native 1,366×768 resolution. An Echo Dot makes a fine match for any Fire edition TV, because you can use the latter to say things like, “Alexa, turn on the TV.” Right now, the 24-inch Insignia Fire TV Edition starts at just $100, while the 32-inch Toshiba Fire TV Editions is on sale for $130. Just add any Fire TV Edition to your cart, then add a third-gen Echo Dot, and presto: The latter is free.

Juan Garzon/CNET Motorola and Verizon are bringing 5G compatibility to another phone this week, the Moto Z2 Force, with an update to its $350 5G Moto Mod. Motorola on Thursday said updates to the 5G Moto Mod now allow compatibility with the Z2 Force, along with “better battery life and faster speeds across the entire Moto Z family.” The expensive Moto Mod launched in April and enabled Verizon’s Moto Z3 to become the “world’s first commercially available smartphone to connect to 5G” in Chicago and Minneapolis. In the meantime, Verizon has expanded its 5G coverage to Denver, Providence, Detroit, Chicago, Minneapolis, Atlanta, Indianapolis, St. Paul and Washington, DC. Motorola also rolled out 5G compatibility for the Moto Z4. As well as offering a snap-on modem upgrade, the 5G Moto Mod behaves like a backup battery and can charge or be charged by the connected Motorola phone. CNET’s initial tests of the 5G Moto Mod on the Moto Z3 were inconsistent, and next-gen 5G networks are still in their infancy and waiting on key technologies. Recently updated to include digital-photo-frame capabilities, the Lenovo Smart Clock brings Google Assistant goodness to your nightstand. It’s a little smaller than the Amazon Echo Show 5, but also a full $30 less (and tied with Prime Day pricing) during this Best Buy Labor Day sale. $155 at Google Express Here’s everything that 5G can do for you Share your voice Read the AirPods review $999 Tags $59 at eBay Comments Angela Lang/CNETlast_img read more

New dock at Jewel Lake makes area accessible to everyone

first_imgAnchorage’s Parks and Recreation Department opened a new dock on Jewel Lake yesterday. Unlike the previous, weather-damaged facility that loomed 15 feet over the water, this one makes the lake accessible — to everyone.Jewel lake dockProject proponents speak as Ira Edwards tests out the new accessible dock on Jewel Lake.Traffic on Diamond roars by as Ira Edwards tosses a kayak into the water then raises himself out of his wheelchair. He’s testing out the new accessible dock at Jewel Lake in south Anchorage. The kayak sits in a metal cage affixed to the edge of the low wooden dock.“As a paralyzed person, I don’t have quite the torso control that you might,” Edwards explains.  “And it allows me to have a more stable platform to get into the boat. So once I’m in the water the boats are naturally stable enough to try to avoid tipping over, unless I do something really dumb.”Edwards was paralyzed when a tree landed on him in 2010. He was clearing trails in a state park after a massive wind storm. But he says he hasn’t let his injury slow him down; he still skis, hunts, fishes, and paddles.“You have to make the choice to get out and do things. You can sit at home and mope about things, but if you want to do it, you have to go for it.”Edwards says projects like the new dock help make that possible.Maeve Nevins managed the $60,000 project for the municipality. She says some features that make the dock accessible are simple.“As you come down, you notice the wood four by four bumpers?” she says she she walks down the low grade ramp. “That’s so that a wheelchair or a person who is blind or whatnot can navigate. They can find their way, and their not going to fall off.”The bumpers line the entire custom-built dock, which is low enough on the water for anyone to fish from it. It also sports a two-tiered bench to help someone move from a wheelchair into a boat. It’s the first accessible public dock in Anchorage. Nevins says the municipality is also installing accessible playgrounds all over the city. They have $100,000 to upgrade Jewel Lake Park.Beth Edmands Merritt is the CEO of Challenge Alaska, an organization that’s been working with people with disabilities for 30 years. She says projects like this help people overcome both mental and physical barriers to being active. She says they help the community, too.“The more people see people with disabilities out and about, they realize what can be achieved.”Down on the water, Edwards paddles about a bit then pulls up to the dock to a handful of people.“Wa-la! I floated, I launched. I loaded it back up.”“Perfect!” his friend says, as he helps Edwards load up the kayak and the dock is now available for the next person seeking an adventure.last_img read more

12 indicted in bust of Fairview Bloods gang

first_imgFederal officials announced a massive gang bust in Anchorage on Thursday.Download AudioActing U.S. attorney Kevin Feldis announces the first indictment in Alaska that alleges the presence of a nationally recognized gang. Photo: Zachariah Hughes/KSKA.Delano Williams of Anchorage is still being sought. Photo: U.S. Department of JusticeThe sprawling indictment from the U.S. Attorney’s office details allegations of drug trafficking, money laundering, illegal firearm possession, and violence by 12 individuals based in Anchorage’s Fairview neighborhood.Speaking during a press conference, U.S. Attorney Kevin Feldis explained how the multi-agency collaboration built a case against the Fairview MOB — which stands for Member Of Bloods.“The Fairview MOB gang members are alleged to be associated with the national Bloods gang. This case here in Alaska, this federal indictment is the first time that we have federally charged a gang activity in Alaska that is alleged to have ties with national gang activity.”The indictment outlines alleged crimes as far back as 2012, with profits from the sale of heroin, crack, and cocaine being laundered through LA-based entertainment companies.Existing criminal records from the Alaska court system show several of the indicted men face charges of assault with a deadly weapon. Three are charged with an attempted murder in May. Another, Michael “Boogie” Reynold is charged with a double-homicide that happened in January in East Anchorage.The Bloods are a Los Angeles-based gang. The picture shows their gang symbol. Photo: Shawn Ishihara via Wikimedia Commons.Anchorage District Attorney Clint Campion says the case is the result of an aggressive task force convened in January after a high-profile spike in homicides and shootings.“There was a moment in early February, as the chief says, where we had to step back and say we have to take a step back and have a different approach. And I distinctly remember members of our federal law enforcement agencies coming to the Anchorage Police Department, meeting with us, and talking about how they could help. And I think the investigation that led to yesterday’s arrests and the indictments preceding it are the culmination of that effort.”It’s not clear how much of the violent crime from last winter’s spike is related to alleged illegal activities by Fairview Bloods.Still, Christopher Constant — a vocal member of the Fairview Community Council running for the area’s Assembly seat — says there’s a sense of relief that the task force is making strides on public safety.“It’s definitely an issue that people have come forward and asked about consistently, and I think today is proof that something has changed, that there is some active enforcement, that there is a partnership tackling a problem.”Of the 12 people indicted, 10 are Anchorage residents, all of them in their 20s. Two others are from Los Angeles.Police are asking for the public’s help locating the only two men not currently in custody — Delano Williams of Anchorage, who also goes by “D,” and Dearon Walton of Los Angeles.last_img read more
