Iran’s Mobile SMS Up & Running; Will Twitter Start to Lose the Green Hues?

first_imgWhy Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting According to a report today from the BBC, Iranians are able to text message one another for the first time since the day before the presidential elections.SMS service, which political dissidents had used to spread messages and organize protests, has been restricted since June 11, causing many Iranians to use Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, and other social sites to broadcast and communicate.The BBC report stated that, according to Iranian news outlets, SMS capabilities are now unblocked but that users are experiencing massive technical problems. Some messages as old as three weeks were just now being received, and some messages were delivered multiple times.Iran’s broken digital communication infrastructure caused many Iranians to turn to services such as Twitter, using proxies to work around government restrictions for web use. Twitter became so integral to Iranians’ communication, particularly with the wider global community, that the U.S. State Department asked Twitter to postpone scheduled maintenance which would have occurred in the immediate aftermath of the election and resultant protests. Other services rushed to add Persian translation features.Hopefully, the unblocking of text messaging in Iran is a sign that communication channels are returning to normal. So, does this mean that everyone’s new favorite color, “Solidarity Green,” will begin to fade away from social web avatars sometime soon? Once the country and its government emerge from crisis mode, what news will come from Iran, and what will the Internet have to say about it? jolie odellcenter_img Related Posts A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Tags:#politics#web last_img read more

Check out Samsung’s wireless charging phone case

first_imgInternet of Things Makes it Easier to Steal You… Tags:#Gear S3#Internet of Things#IoT#patent#phone case#Samsung#smartphone#wireless charging Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces Related Posts Follow the Puckcenter_img How Myia Health’s Partnership with Mercy Virtua… Samsung has patented a wireless charging smartphone case, capable of powering a separate wearable device, like the Gear S3. In the patent released last week, it showed how the case would be able to send energy from the smartphone to the wearable, as a top up.It is another solution Samsung has proposed to fix the problem of lackluster battery life on its smartwatches. Many customers are still put off by the meager battery life, which usually is unable to last over a day with moderate use.Samsung’s high-end flagship smartphones have been able to maintain over a day battery life with heavy usage, so it makes sense that owners of the Galaxy S8 and Gear S3, for example, should be able to move some of the energy from one device to the other.Even though the patent shows the possibility, Samsung has yet to make the case official. We see thousands of patents every year that hint at what manufacturers are up to, but often it turns out to be nothing more than an idea.Samsung has shown other ways it could improve battery life for its smartwatches, including movement that generates energy and solar charging. Neither of these ideas has made it to the company’s current selection of wearables.See Also: Wearable sales to double by 2021, says IDCThe company has started to see some growth in the wearables market, although it is sorely behind Apple and Xiaomi in total sales.The Gear S4, Samsung’s next smartwatch update, is expected to launch before the end of the year.
