By Nick Statt SpaceX and Tesla CEO Elon Musk is backing a brain-computer interface venture called Neuralink, according to The Wall Street Journal . The company, which is still in the earliest stages of existence and has no public presence whatsoever, is centered on creating devices that can be implanted in the human brain, with the eventual purpose of helping human beings merge with software and keep pace with advancements in artificial intelligence. These enhancements could improve memory or allow for more direct interfacing with computing devices. Musk has hinted at the existence of Neuralink a few times over the last six months or so. More recently, Musk told a crowd in Dubai , “Over time I think we will probably see a closer merger of biological intelligence and digital intelligence.” He added that “it's mostly about the bandwidth, the speed of the connection between your brain and the digital version of yourself, particularly output.

Enlarge (credit: Andy Rubin ) Android Inc. cofounder and former CEO Andy Rubin has taken to Twitter to tease a new slim-bezeled smartphone. This is the first device we've seen from Rubin's new startup, Essential. The details on Essential came out in a January report from Bloomberg . The report said Rubin is currently building a consumer hardware company, starting with a "40-person team, filled with recruits from Apple Inc. and Alphabet Inc.'s Google." The company is still in stealth mode, but when it goes public, Rubin will be announced as the CEO, according to the report. Bloomberg described Rubin's company as "A platform company designed to tie multiple devices together," and in addition to a smart home product, "the centrepiece of the system is a high-end smartphone with a large edge-to-edge screen that lacks a surrounding bezel." The phone part certainly seems spot on after this picture.

The Asus Transformer Mini T102HA is a small, easily portable Windows 10 tablet that comes with a cover that doubles as a keyboard making it quick, easy and convenient to swap between tablet and laptop states. Thanks to Microsofts efforts in making Windows 10 an operating system that works well in both desktop and touchscreen tablet modes, devices such as the Asus Transformer Mini allow users to switch between convenience and productivity. So, while Microsofts mobile ambitions may be floundering when it comes to smartphones, 2-in-1 designs such as the Asus Transformer Mini, the Dell XPS 13 and Microsofts own Surface Pro 4 show that there's a healthy demand for Windows 10 devices that can be easily carried around. Price, availability and value The Asus Transformer Mini T102HA comes in a number of configurations and prices; the version we were sent to test was the Asus Transformer Mini T102HA-GR038T, which comes with a price tag of 600 in the UK and $429.

"We are currently producing around 11,000 tablets per day. We want to set up third plant also somewhere in the east but have kept it on hold for this year," Tuli said. As per reports, DataWind led Indian tablet market with 35 per cent share in 2016. "We are eagerly looking at states to roll out their promise of giving mobile devices to people. We hope that states will not only look at affordable devices but also content bundled with them," Tuli said. The company has partnered with educational content and app maker Vismaad for its VidyaTab. "We are having learning content in English. Today we launched content in Punjabi and now we will look at content in Hindi and Telugu. Gradually in other Indian languages where demand is high," Tuli said.

The iPhone 7 Plus on the other hand leans more heavily on metal, with a metal unibody and larger bezels above and below the screen, necessary in part to house the home button. Credit: WinFuture Those larger bezels mean the iPhone 7 Plus may be a similar size to the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus overall: the 7 Plus comes in at 158.2 x 77.9 x 7.3mm, while the Galaxy S8 Plus is rumored to be 159 x 74 x 8mm. That would make the S8 Plus slightly thicker and longer, but not as wide, despite likely having a much larger screen (discussed below). Both phones are clearly premium devices though. The lack of wasted space on the Samsung Galaxy S8 perhaps makes it appear slightly more premium and modern, but the glass back is also likely to make it more fragile. Then again, its rumored to be IP68 certified meaning its dust proof and water resistant to 1.

Google WiFi has been out in the US since the end of last year , but as is often the case with big tech launches, other countries have had to wait. For people in the UK, that wait is almost over, as it debuts in the UK next week , on April 6 to be precise. Maybe youve heard about Google WiFi, and perhaps something about mesh networking, but youre still not quite certain why you should be all that bothered about the router system. Were here to explain exactly whats different about Google WiFi compared to your average router , and why you should be excited concerning its imminent arrival. What is it? First of all, the basics. The idea of Google WiFi is to provide multiple devices which hook up together to ensure better wireless coverage across your home. One of the router devices theyre all identical compact little white cylinders connects to your DSL or cable modem as normal, and the others are strategically placed elsewhere around your home, connecting wirelessly to this first unit, and ensuring a strong Wi-Fi signal in their vicinity.

Elon Musk is about to get even busier. The CEO of Tesla and SpaceX is launching a new company, Neuralink, with the purpose of developing technology that connects our brains to artificial intelligence. The purpose? To help people with neurological disorders and, perhaps, prevent humans from becoming obsolete in the workforce. First reported by The Wall Street Journal , Musk confirmed the company's existence in a tweet : Long Neuralink piece coming out on @ waitbutwhy in about a week. Difficult to dedicate the time, but existential risk is too high not to. The goal, according to the report, is to create tiny devices that can be implanted in the human brain for the purpose of improving memory, and keeping up with technological advancements. The chips would enable people to link more directly to computing devices. The devices would also help people with severe conditions like Parkinson's and epilepsy.
