Delayed release of Apple AirPods is reportedly caused by technology issues

Sat, 12/10/2016 - 07:43

According to a Wall Street Journal (WSJ) report Friday, tech giant Apple's AirPods wireless earphones will likely not be available for purchase during the 2016 holiday season because of a delayed launch by the company.

The $159-priced AirPods wireless earphones were announced by Apple in September this year as a companion to the company's latest iPhones --- iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. Since both the new iPhone models do not feature the headphone jack for slotting in conventional earphones, Apple had unveiled AirPods with great fanfare, as a replacement for conventional earphones.

When Apple unveiled the AirPods in September, it planned to start shipping the earphones to customers in October. However, the earphones were delayed by the company in October, without citing any specific reason. The company simply said that month: "We need a little more time before AirPods are ready for our customers."

According to the WSJ report, based on the information shared by an unidentified source, the delayed launch of the AirPods is rooted in technology issues with the manner in which wireless signals are received by the earphones through Bluetooth.

Meanwhile, about the delayed AirPods launch, which implies that Apple would miss the holiday sales season, Moor Insights & Strategy's chief analyst Patrick Moorhead said: "I think it's a minor blow to the brand, but not a big one, long term. [But] if there are continued hiccups then this, of course, changes."

Microsoft partners with Qualcomm to bring full Windows 10 version to ARM chipsets

Fri, 12/09/2016 - 07:50

In an announcement this week, Microsoft has revealed that it has a new initiative underway with Qualcomm, to bring a full version of Windows 10 OS - together with desktop app support - to ARM chipsets.

In announcing its Windows-on-ARM partnership with Qualcomm, Microsoft said that the key aim behind the partnership -- which marks Microsoft's first Windows on ARM effort -- is to make Windows 10-powered ARM devices fully compatible with 32-bit Win32 in 2017.

According to the announcement, Windows-on-ARM devices will be launched by Microsoft and Qualcomm in 2017. Those devices - which Microsoft is calling "cellular PCs" - will be based on unspecified Qualcomm hardware, most probably the Snapdragon 835. Traditional x86 desktop apps will be emulated, in order to unfold a seamless experience for the end users.

The Microsoft-Qualcomm Windows-on-ARM partnership was announced by Microsoft along with a demonstration of Windows 10 OS running on Qualcomm's Snapdragon 820 chip, complete with Adobe Photoshop support, HD video playback, and Microsoft Office.

According to Microsoft's projections, the new version of Windows 10 OS will likely be adopted by laptops first. However, the company is hopeful of eventually turning a smartphone into a real PC.
