Are Palm phones coming back in 2015 ?

Apparently YES. On the new web site you can see popping up the announcement of the video above.

The site is registered to a company named Wide Progress Global Limited, which apparently purchased the right to use the Palm brand from Hewlett Packard recently. One of the names attached is Nicholas Zibell, who is also Alcatel OneTouch’s president of operations in America.

Alcatel OneTouch hasn’t made anything official yet, and there’s every chance this could all turn out to be a coincidence. However, the use of the “smart move” tagline, which is also used by Alcatel OneTouch, does make the deal and a forthcoming brand resurrection even more plausible.

Outside of this, there are no clues about what products the Palm name will be used on, or whether webOS will be involved. Alcatel OneTouch concentrates on Android-based smartphones and tablets.

The company who is behind this project is:

ALCATEL ONETOUCH is a brand within TCL Communication, an international multicultural company which designs, develops, and markets globally a growing range of mobile and Internet devices. TCL Communication is a public company listed on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange (2618.HK) and part of TCL Corporation one of the largest consumer electronics companies in the world.

LG`s 2015 4K Ultra HD TV Line Up offers, Crisp colors, Improved design, WebOS 2.0 and more features.

Introducing Most Diverse Ultra HD Lineup at CES 2015,
LG Has 4K TVs to Meet Every Need

LG Electronics (LG) will be unveiling its expanded lineup of 4K ULTRA HD TVs, with new designs, more features and picture quality enhancements, at the 2015 International CES® in Las Vegas from Jan.  6-9. This will be the first opportunity for audiences to get a first-hand look at LG’s full collection of 4K ULTRA HD TVs for the 2015 model year.

Named by the Consumer Electronics Association as the “4K Ultra HD Partner for the 2015 International CES,” LG will be demonstrating the superb color reproduction of its ColorPrime series which produces greater realism and depth either with Wide Color LED or Quantum Dot technologies.

LG’s 4K ULTRA HD TV with Wide Color LED technology, making its debut at CES 2015, utilizes different phosphor-based LEDs to display greater color depth and more lifelike images. LG will also be unveiling for the first time ever its 4K ULTRA HD TVs with Quantum Dot technology, which offers high color accuracy along with a 30 percent increase in the color gamut.

LG’s 4K ULTRA HD TVs deliver exceptional 4K (3840 x 2160) resolution with In-Plane Switching (IPS) 4K panels. These displays render color vibrancy of images in near original quality and do so while allowing for remarkably wide viewing angles. LG’s True Black Control local dimming technology refines the contrast and creates darker, deeper blacks. Also new for 2015 is LG’s Natural Color feature which minimizes color reproduction errors while Contrast Optimizer maximizes color contrast and brightness.

Superb picture quality aside, LG’s new ULTRA Slim concept, which has been integrated into the highly praised CINEMA SCREEN design, is an important factor in the TV’s immersive capabilities. The beautiful, slim bezel and clean, seamless appearance creates a compelling package where even the back of the TV has been designed to add a modern touch to virtually any interior décor.

Five of LG’s 4K ULTRA HD TV models come equipped with an impressive multi-channel ULTRA Surround System, developed in partnership with audio expert Harman/Kardon. Deep, rich and powerful sound is guaranteed to further enhance the level of viewer immersion. The thoughtfully-designed forward-firing speakers are compact but effective. And new for 2015, the high-end UF9500 series features an integrated Auditorium Stand designed to reflect and centralize sound for maximum performance.

LG’s newly upgraded proprietary smart TV platform, webOS 2.0, is even more user-friendly than its predecessor, letting users explore the system’s full potential in intuitive ways. Booting time has been reduced by up to 60 percent and connectivity to external devices is even more effortless than before. What’s more, users can customize their own menus on the Launcher Bar for a more personalized experience.

LG has also integrated its sophisticated 4K Upscaler algorithm into its 4K Ultra HD TV lineup for smooth rendering of SD, HD and Full HD content into near Ultra HD quality images. What’s more, the built-in 4K High Efficiency Video Codec (HEVC) Decoder supports both 30p and 60p 4K content from external devices, helping to assure  that LG TVs will be compatible with future Ultra HD transmission standards.

“LG 4K ULTRA HD TVs are designed to offer a viewing experience unmatched in the TV industry,” said In-kyu Lee, senior vice president and head of the TV and monitor division at the LG Electronics Home Entertainment Company. “The breathtaking picture quality is underpinned by our latest ColorPrime series for a truly superb home entertainment experience.”

Visitors to LG’s booth at CES 2015 (Las Vegas Convention Center, Central Hall #8204) from will have the opportunity to see LG’s stunning 4K ULTRA HD TVs with their very own eyes.

Samsung announced the Galaxy Note 4 World`s First LTE-Advanced Tri-Band Carrier Aggregation smartphone. Specifications.

Samsung Electronics Launches the World’s First LTE Advanced
Tri-Band Carrier Aggregation Smartphone

New technology delivers download speeds of 300Mbps, four times faster than LTE services

Samsung Electronics announced the world’s first commercially available LTE Advanced (LTE-A) Tri-Band Carrier Aggregation (CA) smartphone. The LTE-A Tri-Band CA enabled Galaxy Note 4 will provide a download peak speed of 300Mbps, four times faster than the speed of today’s 4G LTE service. 

This will deliver an unparalleled multimedia experience by enabling faster downloads and web browsing, as well as powering faster content streaming and better access to data intensive applications.

“The LTE-A Tri-Band CA smartphone is a meaningful advancement in mobile and telecommunications technologies, and demonstrates Samsung’s long-term commitment to providing innovation within the telecommunications industry,” said JK Shin, CEO and President of IT & Mobile Communications Division at Samsung Electronics.

“We continue to set new challenges for the industry and push boundaries to take mobile technology to the next level and deliver the best possible customer experience.”

The LTE-A Tri-Band CA enabled Samsung Galaxy Note 4 will provide the most innovative network experience currently available on the market by selecting optimally available bandwidths.

The device receives three different frequency bands and aggregates them into a single connection, supporting Category 6 network service with speeds of up to 300 Mbps. Users can download a 700MB video in about 19 seconds or 10 songs with 40MB in about one second.

As mobile and telecommunications technologies continue to evolve, the LTE-A Tri-Band CA Galaxy Note 4 will be LTE-A Category 9 service ready, with speeds of up to 450 Mbps download expected to be commercialized later 2015.

Samsung’s commitment to driving 4G LTE adoption reached a major milestone with the Galaxy S5 LTE+ and Galaxy S5 Broadband LTE-A earlier in 2014, which provided the fastest download speeds to date. During Mobile World Congress 2014, Samsung demonstrated the world’s first LTE-A Tri-Band CA network solutions with 450Mbps speed.

LTE: South Korea: SK Telecom launches world’s first tri-band LTE-A service

SK Telecom said Sunday that it had commercialized a tri-band Long Term Evolution-Advanced service for the first time ever, as part of efforts to develop fifth-generation telecommunications networks.

The tri-band LTE-A service will enable users to download a 1-gigabyte movie in 28 seconds at a speed of 300 megabits per second, which is four times faster than existing fourth-generation LTE, and 21 times faster than the third-generation service, South Korea’s largest mobile carrier noted.

This follows the successful demonstration of the tri-band LTE-A by SK Telecom and its partners Ericsson and Qualcomm Technologies last October after developing the technology in January. 

The tri-band LTE-A enables faster data transfer and communication as it aggregates three different frequency bands of 20, 10 and 10 megahertz into one spectrum.

“With the successful commercialization of tri-band LTE-A, SK Telecom not only secures an important edge in LTE-A four-band carrier aggregation, but also moves a step closer to realizing the 5G service,” SK Telecom said in a press statement.

Korean tech giant Samsung Electronics said Sunday that it had launched the Galaxy Note 4 S-LTE running on tri-band LTE-A service.

Subscribers of SK Telecom will be able to enjoy the service for the same price as the existing LTE, the telecom giant said.

“With the launch of the world’s first tri-band LTE-A service, we will not only provide our customers with unprecedented network speeds, but also offer differentiated and diverse mobile value-added services that meet customers’ needs and interests,” said Lee Jong-bong, executive vice president and head of SK Telecom’s network division.

Meanwhile, KT, Korea’s second-largest mobile carrier, said it would launch a trial service of its tri-band LTE-A X4 for consumers to experience a data download speed of 300 Mbps.

LG Uplus, Korea’s smallest carrier, said it would launch its tri-band carrier aggregation service next month with LG Electronics’ new mobile device. 

A Hug that helped change medicine. Video Un abrazo milagroso.

In 1995, a baby was saved by the hug of her sibling. CNN's Lisa Sylvester reports on a twin bond that has lasted.

A miraculous story happened in Western, Massachusetts, United States, October 17, 1995, where a pair of twins who were born prematurely for 12 weeks, and even each weighing less than 1 kilo, by the way they survived it was really shocking.

Paul Jackson, father of two, knew of complications, and even asserts that the hospital NICU, "the nurses were very honest with me, they told me the next three days would determine to live or not."

When they were just 3 weeks of life, one began to have trouble breathing, his heart began to pump too fast and her oxygen level fell precipitously, and even began to put in a blue tone.

One of the nurses had the idea of bringing them together, removing them from their incubators and put them next to each other in one incubator, something that had never been done. What happened next was truly shocking.

Kyrie Jackson, healthy sister, put his arm over the back of the sick twin, Brielle Jackson, hugging her. This surprising and miraculously made Brielle levels were stabilized, saving his life.

This happened 17 years ago, and now, the twins have grown, healthy and normal life, but what they achieved that day changed the way in which the processes are handled at this hospital and throughout the United States even, and from that moment each having problems with premature babies, from 22 weeks of gestation, physical contact between infants and their mothers, or in the case of twins together, calling this "Kangaroo Care" are since then promoted.
