Samsung finds no evidence of underage workers at supplier HTNS Shenzhen

Samsung finds no evidence of underage workers at supplier HTNS Shenzhen

With so many companies recruiting outside factories to manufacture parts for their devices, we often hear about the working conditions at these factories. Samsung is something of an outlier in that it makes a lot of its part in-house, but there is still a small need for outside help, which means that the company isn't immune to controversy when one of its suppliers is allegedly operating outside the rules. One of these suppliers, HTNS Shenzhen Co., was recently accused of hiring underage works, allegations that Samsung discussed this weekend in a release on Samsung Tomorrow.

EROS 10-inch Shenzhen tablet: nice idea, shame about the battery

EROS 10-inch Shenzhen tablet: nice idea, shame about the battery

Can't wait until next Wednesday?  Have to have a sizeable webslate right now?  Then get yourself to China, my impatient friend, and pick up this 10.2-inch EROS tablet, an Atom N270 based Windows XP/Windows 7 machine that's on sale there for under 3,000 yuan ($440).  Your money gets you a 1366 x 768 resistive touchscreen, 720p HD video playback and some reasonably clean (if uninspiring) design.

Shenzhen HT560 MID packs VIA C7 CPU

Shenzhen HT560 MID packs VIA C7 CPU

Given how popular Android has tuned out to be among no-name tablet manufacturers, it's almost a surprise to see a new Windows XP slate.  Still, the Shenzhen Seed Industrial Co. HT560 has a few tricks up its sleeve: behind the 5.6-inch WVGA 800 x 480 touchscreen lurks VIA's 1GHz C7 processor rather than the Intel Atom we've come to expect, paired with 1GB of memory and between 8GB and 32GB of SSD storage.

Shenzhen MacBook Air clone packs 3G, removable battery, $249 price tag

MacBook Air clones coming out of China aren't in short supply, but the constant refreshing has at least pushed them beyond Apple's official model in some respects.  Shanzai have been taking a look at the Shenzhen Tong Men Tech Company's latest offering, and while it lacks some of the official Air's style, its removable battery, integrated 3G, relative surfeit of ports and $249 price tag go a long way to making up for it.

Shenzhen Suno Technology MA-216 PMP

This PMP from Shenzhen Suno Technology looks pretty good compared to most of the rather boxy media players we see these days. It will play AVI, WMV, MP3, and WMA (with lyric display) as well as display various picture formats.

Qualcomm steps up efforts to help Chinese OEMs go global

Qualcomm steps up efforts to help Chinese OEMs go global

Qualcomm, one of the biggest chip makers in the mobile industry, is facing quite some challenges on multiple fronts. It practically admitted taking a hit from Samsung's decision not to go with its chips for the highly popular Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge flagships. It also explicitly mentioned incurring no small amount of loss in settling an antitrust case in China. But despite the latter, Qualcomm is even more intent in wooing the large market, this time by establishing ties with Chinese smartphone makers to help them launch their products abroad.

UK investigation finds Huawei isn’t a security threat

UK investigation finds Huawei isn’t a security threat

Huawei, along with ZTE, has previously been a source of concern for western governments, many of whom have expressed worry that the Chinese company could be performing surveillance for the Chinese government. That has led to use of its hardware being banned in some places, and probes into whether Huawei hardware has been compromised. Back in 2013, Huawei revealed that it would be launching an R&D facility in the United Kingdom, and that resulted in an investigation into the matter. It has been quite a while since then, and the result is in Huawei's favor.

Penguins can’t taste ice cream, so says science

Penguins can’t taste ice cream, so says science

All penguins - of all types - have been discovered to have no taste for sweet, bitter, and umami flavors of edible matter. Of course they can't taste anything sweet, even if it happens to be a sweet-tasting rock - but this finding is linked inextricably to eating. As it turns out, its likely penguins lost their taste for several types of food over the course of their migration to cold climates and evolution to the creatures they are today - friendly, tasteless waddlers though they are.
