Ultrafast Camera snaps transparent objects at 1 trillion fps

Caltech scientists have invented an ultrafast camera that is capable of taking 1 trillion frames per second of transparent objects. The invention comes after the university created a camera so fast that it could capture light in slow motion about a decade ago. The camera is called phase-sensitive compressed ultrafast photography or pCUP.

Internet Explorer security flaw in active use, patch still coming

Internet Explorer security flaw in active use, patch still coming

It may be long past expiration but Internet Explorer is still being used on some computers and in cases where companies or organizations have locked themselves into technologies that depend on good ol' IE. In fact, Microsoft's browser is still installed by default on almost all Windows computers, which means it can still become a security liability, like in this new flaw that's reportedly being exploited in the wild. Microsoft's response? Wait next month for the fix.

Google Chrome battery usage could go down thanks to Microsoft Edge

Google Chrome battery usage could go down thanks to Microsoft Edge

Chrome may have the lion's share of the web browser market but it is no secret that it is also one of the more resource-heavy and battery-hungry options in the market. Not a problem for desktops, of course, but as more and more people start working more on laptops, it definitely becomes a pain point. Fortunately, there might be some hope coming and it's coming from a rather unexpected source: Microsoft's Chromium-based Edge browser.

Lexus design concepts imagine how we’ll travel on the moon

Much of the focus on lunar space travel is spent on getting to the moon because, of course, we need to get there and establish a base first before anything else. But once we've settled down, how are we going to get around our new lunar home? That's the question that Lexus has sought to answer with a set of concept design sketches that are figuratively and literally out of this world. Some of them we'd probably wished wasn't so out of reach.

Opera resorts to questionable loan apps as browser market share tanks

Opera resorts to questionable loan apps as browser market share tanks

Back in the days when phones weren't exactly smart, the only way people could browse the Web was often through Opera. In the age of smartphones and Google Chrome, however, Opera has become almost a legacy, a legacy that might soon be tarnished by the company's own actions. It turns out that Opera is using what can only be described as predatory loan apps on Android to make a profit but could, in turn, get it banned from Google Play Store for good.

Huawei to replace Google Maps with TomTom

Although matters have been quieter on that front, Huawei remains barred from accessing many US products critical to its smartphone business. It hasn't stopped trying to look for key apps and services to replace its dependence on Google's popular software. The latest piece to be replaced is Google Maps which has now become the go-to service for location and navigation and the Chinese OEM has just closed a deal with Dutch mapping company TomTom exactly for that purpose.

ASUS ROG Phone 2 camera performance is disappointing says DxOMark

ASUS ROG Phone 2 camera performance is disappointing says DxOMark

Following the footsteps of the Razer Phone, a few phone makers have started carving a niche gaming smartphone market that combined the usual high-end specs you'd see in premium flagships with a few gaming-centric touches. The ASUS ROG Phone, both the first and the current second-gen model, is arguably the most expensive of the group but while the ROG Phone 2 does have the makings of a topnotch gaming phone, it seems to have missed out on one of the most important aspects of modern phones today: the cameras.

Windows 10 Your Phone might soon copy and paste content across devices

Microsoft seems to have found a way to make its presence in the mobile market felt even without having a mobile platform of its own. Instead of trying and failing to make its own mobile OS, it has started to focus on making its apps and services not only available on mobile but making them actually desirable. One of the most recent examples of that is the Your Phone app for Windows 10 that might soon have yet another feature that may make it worth having on your phone.

SpaceX Crew Dragon escape test success could lead to Spring crewed flight

SpaceX Crew Dragon escape test success could lead to Spring crewed flight

By now, SpaceX is quite famous for launching rockets that land safely back on earth to be reused again. Last Sunday, however, it let a Falcon 9 rocket explode and actually got congratulated for it. That's really because the expensive rocket wasn't the focus of the launch. Instead, SpaceX was testing the Crew Dragon's escape system that could hopefully save even more precious lives when the capsule does make its first manned flight in a few months.

Galaxy S20 Ultra cameras will have this distinct look

It will be less than a month before Samsung's next big Galaxy reveal and, naturally, the leaks have by now painted an almost complete picture. Curiously, one last-minute detail seems to have just landed regarding the top of the line Galaxy S20 Ultra. It doesn't actually debunk any of the previous unofficial information we've received but it does paint a rather unusual image of what the phone's cameras might look like.
