Nokia denies return to phone manufacturing
The Nokia company logo is pictured at its headquarters in EspooFinland's Nokia denied reports in Chinese media that it planned to return to manufacturing phones. "Nokia notes recent news reports claiming the company communicated an intention to manufacture consumer handsets out of a R&D facility in China. These reports are false," Nokia said in a statement posted on its website. "Nokia reiterates it currently has no plans to manufacture or sell consumer handsets." However, Nokia has said it is looking into returning to the smartphones business by brand-licensing.
Alibaba, China Telecom tie up to sell phones
A cleaner waters the flowers below a logo of Alibaba (China) Technology Co. Ltd at the company's headquarters on the outskirts of HangzhouChinese e-commerce leader Alibaba Group Holding Ltd and state-owned China Telecom Corp Ltd have tied up to sell inexpensive smartphones aimed at boosting mobile commerce in smaller cities and rural areas. The phones, dubbed "Tianyi Taobao Shopping Handsets", will come installed with either an app for easy access to Alibaba's flagship Taobao online shopping platform or its home-grown YunOS mobile operating system, it said in a statement late on Friday. The partnership is a bid to deepen Alibaba's e-commerce base in less developed parts of the country and promote its mobile operating system in a shrinking, cut-throat handset market. Mobile Taobao is China's most popular mobile shopping app with more than 200 million monthly active users, it said.
India's Ratan Tata buys stake in Chinese phone maker Xiaomi
People stand near a logo of Xiaomi ahead of the launching ceremony of Xiaomi Phone 4, in BeijingRatan Tata, chairman emeritus of the holding company of India's Tata conglomerate, has acquired a stake in Xiaomi Technology [XTC.UL], a deal that is likely to bolster the Chinese phone maker's presence in the world's third-largest smartphone market. Financial details of the unspecified stake bought by Tata in Xiaomi, the first by an Indian, were not disclosed in the statement issued by the Chinese company on Sunday. Xiaomi, the No. 3 global smartphone maker, was valued at $45 billion after a December funding round. Tata, a respected business leader who was the chairman of salt-to-software Tata Sons for more than two decades, has previously invested in Indian start-ups, including online retailer Snapdeal.
Orange boss sees end to French telecom price war
French telecom operator Orange Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Stephane Richard speaks during a news conference about the 100% fiber optics Orange in ParisThe chief executive of France's telecom leader Orange said on Saturday he believed the price war in the national telecoms sector was coming to a close. Stephane Richard also argued in a radio interview for consolidation in the French telecoms sector, saying a market with three operators would function better than with four. "In France we have among the lowest prices in the world for both fixed and mobile telecoms. In France the entry of low-cost player Iliad into the mobile market in 2012, has put pressure on prices, which Richard said fell by around 45 percent over three years.
Sony raises FY 2015 profit forecast to $2.5 billion: Nikkei
Visitors walk past a logo of Sony Corp at its headquarters in TokyoJapanese consumer electronics firm Sony Corp has raised its operating profit estimate for fiscal 2015 to 300 billion yen ($2.52 billion), or four times its previous estimate, the Nikkei reported on Saturday. Expectations for higher sales of display sensors used in mobile phones and the Playstation gaming console were the reason Sony raised its forecast, the Nikkei reported without citing sources. No one from Sony was available to comment. Sony also expected earnings in the fiscal year that ends in March 2016 to improve as restructuring costs had been declining, the Nikkei said.
EU antitrust case against Google based on 19 complainants: sources
Euro coins are seen in front of a Google logo in this picture illustration taken in ZenicaBy Foo Yun Chee and Eric Auchard BRUSSELS/BERLIN (Reuters) - The European Union's decision to take on Google last week stems from official complaints by 19 companies in Europe and the United States, including Microsoft and a number of small firms, people familiar with the matter said on Friday. The list of complainants in the European Commission's charge sheet, which includes companies not directly involved in the charges around Google's shopping service, would make it easier for the regulator to expand the case beyond its preliminary focus on price-comparison shopping sites. Being an official party to the case gives the companies an insider track on the regulatory proceedings as they will be able to get a copy of the detailed EU charge sheet and argue their case at a hearing of competition experts should Google ask for one. While around 30 firms have since gone public with their complaints, to date no one other than the EU enforcer and Google knows exactly which parties have been included as official complainants on the charge sheet.

Software that helps power Siri is named after Iron Man's AI, JARVISRemember JARVIS, the hyper-intelligent AI from the Iron Man movies? Well, it seems Apple's engineers used that sci-fi software for some inspiration when building the backbone that powers Siri. At an engineer meet-up last week in Cupertino, Apple revealed that the servers that run Siri use Apache Mesos. The open source software, first developed out of UC Berkeley, is designed to make massive data centers more efficient and easier to manage.

Nokia denies reports that it's reentering the phone business
Nokia denies reports that it's reentering the phone businessAfter rumors sparked up last week that Nokia has plans to get back into the phone business, the Finnish company today made the unusual move of publicly discrediting those claims. It's been a year since Microsoft closed the deal to purchase Nokia's phone business, but that hasn't stopped murmurs that Nokia would some day throw its hat back into the ring. Recode stoked the fire last week with a report that Nokia has plans to reenter the consumer handset market as soon as next year. Whatever Nokia's plans may or may not be, the company is restricted by its agreement with Microsoft not to use its brand on phones until Q4 2016.

What Good Is a Video You Can't See?
What Good Is a Video You Can't See?Soon, thousand of police officers across the country will don body-worn cameras when they go out among the public. I talked to several representatives from privacy, civil rights, and progressive advocacy groups working on body cameras. Body cameras were introduced as a tool of public accountability, but making their videos available to the public might be too fraught, too complex, and too expensive to actually put into practice. Much of the ambiguity around body cameras comes down to this: Despite their general popularity, despite being the only policy change called for by the family of Michael Brown, body cameras are a little weird.

Fall into a hypnotic daze with this CGI aquarium video
Fall into a hypnotic daze with this CGI aquarium videoVisual artist Oleg Memukhin planned a recent CGI experiment around one of Earth's most hypnotic visuals: fish swimming around in a circle. Using the graphics application Houdini, Memukhin created a school of small, shimmery fish and had them move in sync around any objects placed in their path. In the video above, Memukhin describes the four elements in his "flocking model": cohesion, separation and alignment, obstacle avoidance, and shape animation and flee behavior.
Russian hackers reportedly read some of Obama's emails last year
Russian hackers reportedly read some of Obama's emails last yearLast year, some of President Obama's emails were exposed to Russian hackers during a White House computer system breach. Servers that control the traffic to Obama's BlackBerry also remained secure. Obama's personal email account was not affected, rather, much of his correspondence was culled from the accounts of people with whom he communicated frequently. The White House is hit with cyberattacks every day, the Times reports, but this was an advanced, highly targeted attack.

Tony Hawk shares a cheeky video of a Pro Skater character in real lifeIn advance of the Pro Skater 5 release, Tony Hawk has been having a little fun on the internet. Earlier this week, he shared a clip on Instagram created by skater Rob Wootton that cheekily nods to classic Pro Skater games. Wootton imagines himself as an animated character from the menu screen, spinning his board and bobbing around with a blank look on his face while changing outfits. The attention to detail is intense: the music playing in the clip was even used in Pro Skater 2, Polygon reports.
