TECHNOBYTE for 10 July 2015

At a summit in Australia this week, Randi Zuckerberg called for a digital detox. Kids are way too immersed in their devices, she says. Zuckerberg isn’t someone you’d expect to be weighing the benefits of getting more kids offline. Now the head of the social media company Zuckerberg Media, she previously was a senior level marketing director at Facebook. But over the last few years she has become an increasingly urgent voice in the conversation about getting kids to turn off computers, smartphones and video games — at least some of the time.

The P8 embodies classic yet inspiring design, class-leading technology and ease of use that is bound to amaze and inspire its users. The Huawei P8 is undoubtedly the smart phone of choice for the fashion-conscious, visually stimulated modern user. The P8 will be available in South African stores and through all network operators from the second week of July. The P8’s outward appeal lies in its sleek, classical design that reflects its users’ sense of style and appreciation of performance and usability. Combining elegance, craftsmanship and durability, the P8 is manufactured using the latest Nano-injection moldings technology to deliver a one-piece aluminum body. The sleek design combines comfort and ease of use, with the beveled body measuring a mere 6,4mm in height and weighing only 144g. Catering to the fashion conscious consumer who delights in choice, the Huawei P8 is available in silver, gold, black and grey. The P8’s 5.2’’ full HD display with a 1080p resolution completes the design of a handset that redefines elegance and a fully immersive experience.

IBM showed off a prototype chip today that is being hailed as a technological breakthrough for the tiny transistors -- electrical switches that help power a computer -- that have been made so thin they're 1/10,000th the width of a human hair. The breakthrough -- the result of research at IBM and the State University of New York Polytechnic Institute in Albany -- could allow as many as 20 billion transistors to be placed on a chip the size of a fingernail and is half the size of the current 14 nanometer standard, company officials said. A nanometer is one-billionth of a meter.
