<p>So far, we see some rain fade, but weather has not been as big a factor as some thought because the links are short — about 100 to 300 meters — and even the farthest links still get a Gbit/second, with probably more possible when you have line of sight.”</p>

>> It is scarcity of US manufactured products in Euro market shelves. And this becomes even more true for China. A lot more true indeed, because your discussion is on "products" -- not all that's relevant, really. Trade deficit comes from goods and services, amongst other factors. If you stop concentating on what you call "shelves" and include New Econony companies like Google and the like which are either blocked or close to non-existent in China, you get an idea why it's perhaps not appropriate to mention US-China and US-Europe relations in the same sentence. Even if you just look at the small subset of Continental Europe, Google doesn't pay any customs duty for their multi-billion turnovers (nor, as a sideline, any serious income tax obulus on billions of profits), and these turnovers are from services exported to Continental Europe. If all business was included in US trade deficit calculations, a European front truce could be a lot closer.

The fourth quarter results confirmed again that PCs are no longer popular holiday gift items,” Kitagawa said through a press statements. This does not mean that PCs will disappear from households.”

Instead, Kitagawa said, PCs will become more specialized, purpose-driven devices. PC buyers will look for quality and functionality rather than looking for the lowest price, which will increase PC average selling prices and improve profitability in the long run,” Kitagawa said. However, until this point is reached, the market will have to go through the shrinking phase caused by fewer PC users.”


Gartner and IDC agreed that HP was the leading PC vendor in the fourth quarter and for all of 2017 with market share of greater than 20 percent. Both companies ranked Lenovo second and Dell third for the quarter and for the year.

SAN JOSE, Calif. — Smart glasses — the Holy Grail for augmented reality — are still five to 10 years away. Before we get there, 5G will arrive, but it is not expected to provide as big a bump in spending as previous cellular generations.

The views expressed at last week’s Industry Strategy Symposium let a little of the air out of hopes for the two emerging markets.


Smart glasses will be the next big compute platform replacing our smartphones … [but] it will take many significant silicon breakthroughs to make them a realty,” said Joe O’Keeffe, who works on chip, display, and sensor research at Oculus, the virtual reality headset maker owned by Facebook.

Someday, such AR glasses will let users see virtual people and objects and provide services based on machine learning such as translating signs in a foreign language. There will be a lot of gimmicks, toys, and demos, but we are in the game of getting to an iPhone equivalent,” said O’Keeffe.

SAN FRANCISCO — Injong Rhee, a former chief technology officer at Samsung Electronics, has joined Google as an entrepreneur-in-residence to lead Google's Internet of Things (IoT) business, Rhee said in a blog posting on LinkedIn.

Rhee, who left Samsung in December after six years — including two as CTO and head of R&D, software and services — said in the posting that he will report to Diane Greene, CEO of Google's cloud computing unit, Google Cloud, and a member of Google parent Alphabet's board of directors.

Google, like virtually all tech companies, has been heightening its focus on IoT. Last year, Google introduced a service called Google Cloud IoT Core to help companies connect IoT devices to Google Cloud, manage them centrally and integrate them with Google's analytics services.

Just to recap, structured light and ToF technologies are two different methods available for depth sensing today. Structured light does 3D scanning by projecting a known pattern onto an object. When the light hits the object, the pattern is distorted. Structured light analyzes the deformation of the known pattern to infer depth.
