• A Utah Company Claims It Invented Contact Tracing Tech

    In the fight against Covid-19, contact tracing apps have so far largely been disappointments— in the United States, at least. Proposed in the spring as a way to help quickly stifle viral outbreaks by tracking down potential exposures using smartphones, they were stunted by technical glitches, concerns over privacy, and the US’s fragmented, haphazard pandemic response. Now, they may become mired in a fight over patents.

    The challenge comes from Blyncsy, a Salt Lake City–based maker of software that helps cities gather and analyze mobility data. In recent weeks, the company has sent claims seeking the equivalent of $1 per resident to states that have released or plan to release contact tracing apps, including Pennsylvania, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Virginia. The company holds three patents related to contact tracing. One of them, granted in February 2019, for “tracking proximity relationships and uses thereof,” describes methods of tracking

  • OnePlus’ well-balanced Nord line is US-bound with sub-$400 5G model, says report

    We were pretty pleased with the OnePlus Nord — a well-balanced, mid-ranger that made some compromises but generally delivered for its price. But the Nord wasn’t available in the US, which is why we’re excited to see reports that OnePlus is readying a new Nord model that apparently will be coming to the United States: the Nord N10 5G.

    News of this handset comes from Android Central which cites “an insider source.” The publication says the Nord N10 5G will be powered by the Snapdragon 690 which offers 5G support (the original Nord had a Snapdragon 765G), and that the base variant will have 6GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, and a 6.49-inch FHD+ display with 90Hz refresh rate. That’s a slightly larger screen than the original’s (6.44-inch) but slightly less RAM (8GB for the base Nord) and what benchmarks suggest to be a marginally slower processor.

  • Man on bus uses a snake as a mask. Yes, you read that right.

    At this point in a pandemic, I think we’re all familiar with the different kinds of face masks, right? Surgical masks, cotton masks, N95 masks and even silk masks for when you’re feeling fancy.

    However, we’re not sure what kinda look this guy was trying to go for though… As you can see in the picture above, this man is using a snake to cover his face while on a bus in the UK.

    According to reports, the man boarded the Swinton bus at Salford with the python wrapped around his neck – perhaps in an attempt to mock the mandatory mask ruling.

    The eyewitness said she found the incident to be “really funny” and that “no-one batted an eyelid” upon seeing the man.

    Just in case you were actually wondering, yes, medical experts have strongly discouraged using snakes as a face mask. Duh.

    According to Adam Hart, Professor of
