The iPhone 5 and LTE _ what it means for you

What LTE on the iPhone 5 will mean to you _ questions and answers

By Peter Svensson

NEW YORK (AP) — The iPhone 5 is Apple’s first mobile handset that uses new “LTE” wireless networks. What’s LTE —and why should you care? Here are some answers.

Q: What does LTE stand for?

A: It’s “Long-Term Evolution,” but that doesn’t really tell you anything. It’s actually the latest and fastest way to transmit data from cellular towers to phones and other gadgets. It’s one of two so-called “fourth-generation,” or 4G, wireless technologies that have been deployed by various phone companies. (The other one is WiMax, which is available on Sprint phones. But WiMax coverage is low, isn’t being expanded, and even Sprint is betting on LTE for the future).

Q: How fast is LTE? Will it make a difference to me?

A: LTE networks in the U.S. reach speeds up to 20 megabits per second. That’s faster than most people get at home, with their cable or DSL services. It’s also faster than older wireless networks, but the differences aren’t always that big. Sprint and Verizon iPhone users should see a huge jump in speed with the new iPhone because their 3G networks are relatively slow. Downloads will be more than ten times faster where LTE is available. For AT&T users, downloads speeds should double or triple.

Acer skips Aliyun OS on China smartphone following pressure from Google

Lee Mathews

Acer had planned to launch a customized version of its Cloud Mobile smartphone in China that ran Alibaba’s Aliyun OS. The phone is already available elsewhere running Android, but with Acer’s brass keen to expand the company’s mobile market share, shifting to Aliyun in China seemed like a good idea.

Google apparently thought otherwise. According to an Alibaba spokesperson, Acer was urged to reconsider its course of action. Google reportedly threatened to terminate “product cooperation and related technical authorization” should it proceed with the Aliyun-powered phone. Acer decided to call things off — and naturally both Acer and Google are remaining tight-lipped about why this week’s launch party has been cancelled.

London Fashion Week: Day One

Ella Alexander

Corrie Nielson was given exclusive access to the Kew Gardens archives when working on her spring/summer 2013 collection, which was more than evident in the series of voluminous, ruched and tulip-shaped designs, in a pretty floral-tone colour palette. Zoё Jordan turned to her recent travels to Africa when looking for inspiration for her latest show, resulting in

her signature easy separates getting a serious injection of print. Sheer overlays covered almost everything on the Bora Aksu catwalk, from trapeze dresses to collared shirts -while all the models sported intricate sculptural crowns.

By: Russ Burlingame
According to commenters on our Facebook page, Eddy Barrows has posted to his personal Facebook page that he is not taking over the art chores on Aquaman but merely did this cover. We were unable to confirm this, due to privacy settings on Barrows’s Facebook account.

Writer/artist Rob Liefeld, though, apparently has had some kind words for Barrows in the recent past. He tweeted, “Hope they stick with my suggestion from 3 months ago and it’s Eddy Barrows on more than just the Aquaman covers.”

James Ellroy Novel ‘Blood’s A Rover’ Optioned By VS Entertainment


EXCLUSIVE: Vincent Sieber’s VS Entertainment has acquired screen rights to Blood’s A Rover, the latest novel by L.A. Confidential author James Ellroy.

Sieber, currently executive producing Alex Proyas’ The Unpleasant Profession Of Jonathan Hoag, will produce Rover with Clark Peterson, who recently wrapped production on Atom Egoyan’s Devil’s Knot. Ellroy will be exec producer.

Set during the troubled times of the late 60’s and early 70’s, the novel tells the story of Joan Rosen Klein who, against all odds, triumphs against her mobbed-up and politically connected foes to avenge her lost loved ones. In the process, she alters the course of history as well as the lives of the three men who follow her: Dwight Holly–J. Edgar Hoover’s pet strong-arm goon; Wayne Tedrow—-ex-cop and heroin runner—-who is building a mob gambling mecca in the Dominican Republic; and Don Crutchfield, a window-peeping private-eye within tantalizing reach of right-wing assassins, left-wing revolutionaries and the powermongers of an incendiary era. Their lives collide in pursuit of the “Red Goddess” Joan—and each of them pay a price to live history.
