Now, though, the iPhone’s processor bests the MacBook’s in many benchmarking tests. A few even have docks or software that adapts to the big screen to serve up an experience virtually identical to a traditional PC. If you’re going to pay as much as $1,000 for it, it better be. Emily Prapuolenis/The Wall Street Journal A Bluetooth keyboard turns your phone into a super-portable PC replacement you can work on from almost anywhere.
Faced with new questions about whether it’s a monopoly, Facebook Inc. is making a bold argument: owning so many communications platforms helps keep users safe. On Tuesday, the European Parliament asked Chief Executive Officer Mark Zuckerberg whether he should be allowed to own two of the world’s largest chat applications, Messenger and WhatsApp, in addition to the biggest social network and the photo app Instagram. When Facebook sees spam, exploitative images or illegal content, for example, it can obliterate it on all platforms at once.

FBI director Christopher Wray has used false data on the number of phones that because of increasing mobile security from the likes of Apple and Google the agency could not access. FBI director Christopher Wray is likely cursing his number crunchers in Quantico this week, after it emerged figures he’d been using to justify his agency’s drive to get tech companies to help cops access encrypted data was wrong. In his attempts to explain the problem of encryption causing phone data to “go dark,” Wray had repeatedly claimed the FBI was unable to break the locks of close to 7,800 devices in investigations last year.

When it comes to business strategy, social media operators Twitter (TWTR), Facebook (FB), Google, and Snap (SNAP) all seem to think the future is in video. For Twitter, particularly, video is a big business already.

Acer Inc unveiled two high-end laptops running Google's Chrome OS on Wednesday as the companies take their first big stab at getting Chromebooks into businesses after capturing the U.S. education market. The Taiwanese computer maker, which IDC estimates was the No. 2 Chromebook vendor in the United States last year, outfitted its new line with aluminum bodies and Intel Corp's top-flight 8th Generation processors. The powerful gear and sleek look are meant to separate the Acer Chromebook Spin 13 and Acer Chromebook 13 from cheaper machines that have become popular among schools and children looking for simple computers.
Some bad ideas just won't die. It seems to matter not that many are silly beyond logic. When it comes to money matters, a big one stands out as ridiculous. That is the recurrent meme that China will somehow imminently oust the U.
Activists in Amsterdam on Wednesday launched the 'Datavakbond' or "data labour union", which hopes to elect leaders to negotiate directly with Facebook and Google over what they do with users' data.

The OnePlus 6’s main rival, despite what the Chinese manufacturer says, is the device that’s closest to it: Google’s Pixel 2 XL. Google’s Pixel 2XL, its highest spec smartphone, comfortably beats Samsung and Apple’s flagships on price, which is impressive considering what you get for your money. Elsewhere, though, it’s hard to see why you’d pay the extra for Google’s handset.
As noted previously, US-China trade war fears have subsided for the time being after the second round of talks held last week. Financial markets breathed a sigh of relief after the US-China trade war was put on hold. Broader market indexes like the S&P 500 (SPY) closed with gains on May 21 after constructive trade talks between the world’s two biggest economies. Notably, during the annual shareholder meeting, Warren Buffett, Berkshire Hathaway’s (BRK-B) chair, also expressed optimism about US-China trade relations. ...
The recently launched OnePlus 6 follows that maxim, and manages to bring high-level specifications to a very competitively priced handset (the baseline is $529 for the 6GB RAM 64 GB storage model). In the last few years, the answer has always been to look at the IP rating of a device, and IP67 has become somewhat of an industry standard (in short an IP67 rating means full protection against dust, and withstand submersion in one meter of water for thirty minutes). A close examination of the specifications will show there is no IP67 rating for the OnePlus 6.
