iOS 12 will automatically share your iPhone’s location when you call 911

%name iOS 12 will automatically share your iPhone’s location when you call 911 by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley

Despite having unveiled iOS 12 and detailed the software at WWDC 2018 earlier this month, Apple is still announcing new features for the update. On Monday, Apple said in a press release that iOS 12 users will be able to automatically share their location with first responders when they call 911 from their iPhone. This will allow emergency services to locate callers in an instant without the caller having to provide any information over the phone.

Apple claims that around 80% of 911 calls come from mobile devices, but the “outdated” infrastructure being used by first responders makes it difficult for call centers to accurately determine the location of a caller. Apple launched HELO (Hybridized Emergency Location) in 2015 to address the issue, but is redoubling its efforts this fall.

%name The smartwatch with one month battery life is back on Amazon, and it’s only $65 right now by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley

The Apple Watch is the best-selling smartwatch on the planet, and there isn’t even a close second. It’s nowhere close to being perfect, however, and many people out there are looking for other good options. And of course the Apple Watch doesn’t work with Android phones, so it’s not even an option for the billions of people out there who use Android. Check out the Amazfit Bip Smartwatch by Huami. It works with iPhones and with Android phones, it has GPS for run tracking, it has sleep tracking, it has constant a heart rate monitoring option, and it features battery life that lasts for up to 45 days on a single charge! It normally sells for $100 which is already an insane value, but right now it’s just $65 on Amazon.

Here are some key details from the product page:

  • Look as Good as You Feel: With a range of colors and options, the Bip is designed to be worn as an extension of your personal style. Weighing only 1.1oz (32g), and with a bright, transflective always-on 1.28″ display, the Bip can be worn all day
  • Go the Distance: Use the Amazfit Bip for up to 30 days on a single 2.5-hour charge.
  • Don’t Miss a Beat: Optical heart rate monitoring and built-in GPS allow you to accurately track in real-time your steps taken, distance traveled, calories burned, and quality of sleep. Special sport modes (running, treadmill, cycling and walking) give you even more detailed insights into your most frequent activities.
  • Be in the Know: The perfect companion to keep you organized and productive all day long. Receive one-way notifications for emails, SMS messages, and incoming phone calls (prompting you to take action on your smartphone), as well as alerts for Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp, LinkedIn, Snap, Slack, weather forecasts, and other mobile apps

%name The 512GB Galaxy Note 9 is supposedly real, but you’ll have a tough time buying one by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley

In less than two months, Samsung will reportedly unveil its next best thing, a Galaxy Note version that will look a lot like last year model, but pack better specs and improved camera experience. The Note 9, much like the Galaxy S9, will be “boring” that way. But the handset is expected to offer users a bunch of exciting features, including a bigger battery than ever before, and more storage than the competition has to offer.

However, not all Galaxy Note 9 buyers will be able to buy the 512GB version of the phone.

%name Thank heavens Samsung canceled this fugly foldable Samsung Galaxy phone by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley

If you see a device packing two screens adjoining smartphone screens that calls itself a foldable smartphone — or ZTE Axon M — run for your life. This is not the foldable phone we want or need right now. Yes, you do get more screen real estate, and you do get more space for a battery inside. But having a hinge running through the display is not what I’d call an ideal screen experience.

Samsung may be the first smartphone maker in the world to create a foldable device that actually looks good, not that I’d pay the rumored $2,000 price tag for it. But the Android vendor also toyed with the idea of launching an Axon M-like Galaxy phone a few years ago, but that project was canceled.

New helicopter video confirms Hawaii is basically Mordor now

%name New helicopter video confirms Hawaii is basically Mordor now by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley

Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings trilogy relied heavily on CGI to turn Mordor into hell on Earth, complete with a lava-spewing volcano and rivers of molten stone running through a barren wasteland. The same description also applies to parts of Hawaii’s Big Island, but the lava is real, and the Kilauea volcano was happy to do the terraforming for free.

A new aerial video from the US Geological Survey, captured during a helicopter flight over the East Rift Zone on Thursday, shows the extent of the devastation caused by the ongoing eruption. The coastline ravaged by the lava flowing from Fissure 8 is about a mile long, and it’s turned into a complete wasteland. Rivers of lava continue to flow, and the rock that’s left behind is as black and charred as you’d imagine.

This was an odd year at E3, with Microsoft taking charge, showing off 50 games, and confirming that the next Xbox is in the works, Sony shoving all of the attendees at its press conference into a crowded tent, and Nintendo deciding to show up with one big title and basically take the year off after launching a new console last year.

The good news is that there were still a ton of games — so many that it has taken me most of the day to decide which ten made the biggest impression on me now that E3 2018 has officially wrapped up.

%name Here’s everything AT&T now owns, apart from your soul by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley

Earlier this week, a judge decided the fate of the AT&T Time Warner deal, and the result was a big thumbs-up in the general direction of capitalism. The $85 billion deal has closed, Time Warner has officially been assimilated into AT&T (and renamed WarnerMedia), and there’s almost zero chance that anything will stop it now.

With the closing of the deal, AT&T is now far more than just a telecoms company. It owns dozens of brands, as well as the rights to some of the most popular shows on TV. It has dozens of cable channels, and if the worst fears about programming disputes play out, AT&T could black those channels out from your pay TV provider during a dispute. In no particular order, here’s some of the big brands AT&T now owns.

%name I wouldn’t buy a $2,000 foldable iPhone, let alone Samsung’s Galaxy X by Authcom, Nova Scotia\s Internet and Computing Solutions Provider in Kentville, Annapolis Valley

When the Galaxy X, Samsung’s first foldable phone, launches next year it’ll surely be one of the most exciting handsets released. It’ll have a total of three screens, if rumors are accurate, allowing you to switch between a smaller phone form factor and a tablet-sized phone. Samsung, of course, isn’t the only company in the world working on such devices, but it might make the first foldable gadget that actually looks good. Yes, the ZTE Axon M still sucks and I wish it never existed.

That said, I would not pay $2,000 for a foldable iPhone X if it launched next year. So there’s no way in the world I’d even consider buying a Samsung foldable phone.
