    Вести.net in Russia there is no more brand Vertu
    The court declared bankrupt, the daughter of the British company, Vertu Russia. Now begins the sale of its assets and partial repayment of debts. Details in the program Вести.net.

    In Russia there is no more brand Vertu, once very expensive, beautiful, high-status phones. The court declared bankrupt, the daughter of the British company, Vertu Russia. Now begins the sale of its assets and partial repayment of debts. Fully to pay its creditors will not work: say, the debt has already exceeded 270 million rubles, to cover which are less than thirty.

    However, all this is rather a technicality. The fact that the Russian subsidiary Vertu will have to close, it became clear last year, when bankruptcy was declared by the parent company.

    Vertu appeared in ' 98, effectively as the premium division, then dominated the mobile market Nokia. Her inspiration was the lead designer of the Finnish company Frank Nuovo. The main idea of the brand was simple: to make a phone that would emphasize the status of the owner. In the course went the most expensive materials (for example, crocodile skin, gold and platinum), and each unit assembled by hand.

    And included with the device was the Concierge service-Vertu assistants were able to buy plane tickets, to negotiate with the dry cleaners or to book a table in the restaurant. Well that is about it, where to move all voice assistants, which are today in any smartphone.

    In the heyday, Vertu was selling premium phones at $ 200 million per year. One camera worth a few thousand (sometimes tens of thousands) of dollars. However, by the end of the zero from Nokia itself, which missed the smartphone revolution, things have not gone very in 2011, giant sold its premium brand. The new owner, Swedish EQT, tried to save the business, in particular making the Vertu of the Android platform. But it didn't work out.

    The company resold several times, eventually she ended up in the hands of the Turkish businessman Hakan usana. He was unable to repay the debts Vertu and declared it bankrupt. A few months ago, the businessman promised that outsource production to China and make the brand more accessible. But the chances of revival are not many. For fans of a very expensive exclusive is the iPhone in the buildings, and from a technical point of view, to do something better and more reliable than existing flagships from the market leaders is almost impossible.

    In the card of the YouTube app in the Apple App store has information not yet available via in-app purchases with prices in rubles. Their names suggest that we are talking about subscriptions to paid Premium YouTube Music and YouTube Premium, the upcoming launch of which (including in Russia) was announced last week.

    New options in-app purchases (the ability to make them in the current version of the app is not yet available) called YouTube Red (A) and YouTube Red (B). First it drew the attention of the publication iGuides. Option A is more expensive — 249 rubles, option B will cost 229 rubles:


    Launched this week in the USA YouTube Premium costs $ 12 per month, and YouTube Music Premium (without the ability to watch exclusive video content) — $ 10. It is easy to assume that 249 and 229 rubles per month, respectively — it is likely the cost of these subscriptions in Russia. It is possible that in the end the prices will be other

    YouTube Music allows listening to music from the extensive catalogue (including all that is in the streaming service Google Play Music, and more, concert recordings, remixes, covers, video clips) "reinvented" the mobile app, as well as "brand new" desktop player "designed for music". The free version (not Premium) will not allow you to listen to music, leave the app, or save it for offline listening, and will contain advertising.

    The app will recommend on the home screen the music is not only based on listening history, but given the location and time of day. In addition, the promise of "thousands" playlists that will help you to find music suitable for a situation and discover new interesting artists and songs.

    YouTube Premium, in addition to the subscription to YouTube Music Premium will also allow you to completely get rid of ads on YouTube and will give access to exclusive content.

    Microsoft demonstrated a similar Google Duplex
    Earlier this month, Google showed the new feature "Assistant" to make phone calls and communicate on behalf of the user. The sound of the voice and manner of communication of the virtual assistant was too realistic: in search even wondered to warn the interviewee in the beginning of the conversation that he communicates with the bot, and the call is recorded.

    Earlier this month, Google showed the new feature "Assistant" to make phone calls and communicate on behalf of the user. The sound of the voice and manner of communication of the virtual assistant was too realistic: in search even wondered to warn the interviewee in the beginning of the conversation that he communicates with the bot, and the call is recorded.

    For the development of analog technology Duplex Google came from Microsoft. A couple of years the developer of Windows is testing in China chat bot Xiaoice (pronounced as "SAOs"), which it enjoys tremendous popularity. Unlike other chat programs, behavior Xiaoice is indistinguishable from 17-year-old girl: she puts Emoji and expresses sympathy, may I ask a stupid question and remembers what it said before.

    Says CEO Satya Nadella, China's Xiaoice more than half a billion "friends." "She has her own TV show, she writes poetry and does many other interesting things," he said. Users can interact with the chat bot via WeChat messenger by sending messages to one of 16 channels, and the local social network Weibo.


    According to Nadella, Xiaoice recently learned how to call and communicate with people by voice. This feature is available as an alternative to text input: the user can accept the call and something to ask of the program. However, to dial another person and talk to him on behalf of the user, like Google Duplex, it can not yet.

    Xiaoice is able even to predict what is going to say. For technology demonstration in London, Nadella revealed how a chat-bot interrupts the user mid-sentence, warning him about the weather and advises to close the window before going to sleep.

    Started manufacturing processors for the next-generation iPhone
    Taiwanese TSMC begins mass production of processors for smartphones next-generation iPhone, which Apple is expected to introduce in the fall of 2018. About it reports Bloomberg with reference to informed sources.

    Taiwanese TSMC begins mass production of processors for smartphones next-generation iPhone, which Apple is expected to introduce in the fall of 2018. About it reports Bloomberg with reference to informed sources.

    The processor that Apple will likely be called the A12, will be the first mobile system-on-chip using a 7-nm process technology. Currently, most advanced chips, including Apple A11 in iPhone X iPhone and 8, as well as Qualcomm Snapdragon 845, available for 10-nm process technology. Recall, it is expected that Apple this year will release three "iPhone" extended and standard version of the device similar to the iPhone X, and "budget" variant of the same design, but more affordable components. The latter, according to some estimates, can support 2 SIM cards and cost from $ 550 — almost twice cheaper than the iPhone X.

    7-nanometer (a measure indicates the distance between the computational elements of the chip) posessory can be more efficient, more productive and more compact 10-nanometer. Them smartphones, having the same performance, will be able to operate on battery power longer and less warm, or, while maintaining autonomy and the two contacts of the previous generation of chips to be more powerful.


    ∎Apple's plans revealed: the fall will release three "iPhone"read more

    On Tuesday about plans to start production of 7-nanometer chips until the end of the year stated and the main competitor Apple, the Korean Samsung. TSMC, for several years, which is the main manufacturer of systems-on-chip for Apple, announced the beginning of mass production of 7-nanometer processors at the end of April. The company said that such components are ordered for more than a dozen partners.

    Comparing the 16-nm FinFET process technology CLN16FF+ (the most widely used now in TSMC) new CLN7FF will reduce the chip area by 70% (with the same number of transistors), to reduce energy consumption by 60% or increase the clock speed by 30%. Until the end of the year production will be ready about 50 products that use CLN7FF.

    In TSMC noted that in contrast to the 10-nm process technology, required only for multiple mobile systems-on-chip, the new process technology will be used in addition to mobile SoC, for chips of different purposes, including Central and graphics processors, components for neural computing, automotive equipment, and mining of cryptocurrencies.

    CLN7FF technology based on lithography in the deep UV using excimer lasers argon fluoride emitting at a frequency of 193 nm. This allowed TSMC to develop new process technology into existing equipment. At the same time, had to increase the number of cycles of treatment that requires more time and increases the cost of production.
