Today In TV History
On this date in 1938, television transmissions from the BBC in London are picked up at RCA’s frequency measuring laboratory at Riverhead, New York; after picking up and recording the sound component, engineers acquire a 405-line receiver and film the images picked up. Atmospheric conditions at the time were exceptional, favoring long-range propagation.
FIFA President To Continue Until…
In the ongoing saga of a man in desperate times, Sepp Blatter will continue to be president of the scandal ridden FIFA organization until the Presidential election is held in February 2016. Six of the seven executives arrested in May remain in custody in Zurich awaiting extradition hearings. Jeffrey Webb, the former Concacaf president and Fifa vice-president, has pleaded not guilty to corruption charges.
Social Media News
More Facebook and Twitter users are getting their news from those platforms, says the Pew Research Center. Some 63% of each group said the social networks are a platform for their news consumption, up from 52% (Twitter) and 47% (Facebook) in 2013. This rise appears to be across age and gender groups. While Facebook and Twitter users report comparable levels of engagement with most news types, Twitter users are more likely to say they see news about national government and politics, international affairs, business, and sports.
‘WiFi Aware’ to Create Brave New World for Mobile Devices
WiFi is going to get a lot smarter. A new service developed by some of the biggest brands in tech, called /WiFi Aware’ is going to be a game changer. Like GPS but extremely smart, it works in the background to scan and notify you of local devices, points of interest or even people. Developed by the WiFi Alliance—a consortium that includes Microsoft, Apple, Samsung, and Sony, among others, ‘WiFi Aware’ is designed to function without cellular data or even an internet connection.
Starting this week, the Alliance will begin certifying various gadgets, apps, and services as “WiFi Aware”—just like current WiFi- or Bluetooth-compatible products. At the heart of the platform is location—or, more accurately, your device’s proximity to relevant services or devices. The WiFi Alliance designed ‘WiFi Aware’ to operate in crowded environments—a crucial feature given the ubiquity of WiFi-enabled devices—and you have to actively establish a connection with another device to send or receive information. The service was also designed to be application-driven, allowing users to control privacy settings and opt in to notifications. We can expect to see social networks like Facebook or LinkedIn begin rolling out WiFi Aware services before the end of the year.
