It's all about E-Waste management

1 May 2016 by Kavitha Srinivasa

Friends all I can say is that this blog can be read as a continuation of the previous one. I'll tell you why, because when I visited the manufacturing facility, people were telling me about disposing e-waste or electronic waste. As I left the facility I began to think about e-waste and everything connected to it in terms of disposal, management and recycling. By the time I reached home, I kind of had a hazy picture of this story. Anyway, let's see how it pans out.

Should we take UK tech firms' Brexit threat seriously?

29 Apr 2016 by Pelle Neroth

There is a certain deja vu about international businesses threatening to abandon Britain if the UK votes to leave the EU. In a poll for the members-only fintech (financial technology) association Innovate Finance, 82% of firms said they wanted the UK remain in the EU. In another survey, conducted by Reuters, 7 out of 10 tech companies contacted said they would consider leaving the UK if Brexit took place.

29 Apr 2016 by Paul Dempsey

Within the activist investor community, Carl Icahn is a big hitter. He is also a familiar and often controversial figure within high technology. So, he certainly caught the market's attention by selling all his Apple stock a few days after the company reported its first fall in quarterly revenues since 2003. Until then, Icahn had been a very public Apple fan.

SIM cards everywhere - as long as you can lose the card bit

28 Apr 2016 by Chris Edwards

As the market for smartphones saturates, companies like Qualcomm are very keen to put their chips into things that could be turned into communications devices - such as the dashboards of cars or sensors that detect movement in bridges. The problem for the Qualcomms of this world is that, though they dominate the market for smartphone chips the really important part of the handset is the comparatively simple chip that sits inside the SIM card. It's the one thing that tells the network it's a real phone and not a fake. Without it, the iPhone becomes a glorified iPod.

The Telharmonium

12 Apr 2016 by Justin Pollard

Many engineers create things that are 'before their time'. Sometimes they are simply laughed at by a public who fail to understand the coming world. Sometimes the technology of the day simply cannot deliver the dream of the engineer and so the idea must wait for later dreamers and more sophisticated times. So it was for Thaddeus Cahill, the man who tried to give us muzak and the Hammond organ before we were really ready.
