SOLiD and Intel Alliance Leverages Intel mDR and FPGA Technology to Develop 5G mmWave Repeaters

Plano, TX, Sept. 02, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — SOLiD, the leader in indoor and outdoor cellular and public safety communications infrastructure, today announced new RocketWAVE™ 5G mmWave repeaters based on Intel mDR and FPGA technologies to address coverage challenges in high band spectrum. The license of the Intel technology enhances SOLiD’s prior investment and development of 5G mmWave repeater technology. Building on the success of multiple trials, the alliance leverages Intel’s field-proven technology to accelerate the time to market and improve the features of SOLiD’s RocketWAVE™ 5G mmWave repeaters.

There are three primary use-cases for enhancing coverage with 5G mmWave repeaters: mobile outdoor urban, mobile in-building, and fixed-wireless access.

Outdoor urban 5G mmWave mobile coverage faces challenges resulting from reduced range and easily obstructed high band signals. RocketWAVE™ 5G mmWave repeaters overcome these limitations by extending coverage distance and retransmitting signals around obstructions, which reduces CAPEX by decreasing the required

Apple to delay privacy change threatening Facebook, mobile ad market

By Stephen Nellis

(Reuters) – Apple Inc said on Thursday that it will delay until early next year changes to its privacy policy that could reduce ad sales by Facebook Inc and other companies targeting users on iPhones and iPads.

The delay could benefit Facebook, which last week said the changes to the iOS 14 operating system would render one of its mobile advertising tools “so ineffective on iOS 14 that it may not make sense to offer it.”

Apple announced new privacy rules in June that were slated to take effect with the launch of its iOS 14 operating system this fall. Among them is a new requirement that advertisers who employ an Apple-provided tracking identifier, or other tools that have a similar function, must now show a pop-up notification asking for tracking permission.

Facebook said last week it would quit using the tool that requires a prompt in

Apple is delaying plans to require iOS developers to request permission from app users before collecting their unique device ID for the purposes of ad tracking, the company said Thursday.

“When enabled, a system prompt will give users the ability to allow or reject that tracking on an app-by-app basis,” Apple told CNET. “We want to give developers the time they need to make the necessary changes, and as a result, the requirement to use this tracking permission will go into effect early next year.”

First announced at WWDC in June, the new requirement was set to replace the current opt-out model, where developers are free to track

The number of US prescriptions for hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine were significantly higher in March and April than in the same period in 2019, and the providers prescribing them were different, according to new research published in the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report on Thursday. 

The drugs are typically used to treat autoimmune diseases and to prevent malaria, but early in the pandemic, were touted by President Trump and others as a possible Covid-19 treatment. On March 20, the US Food and Drug Administration issued an emergency use authorization for the drugs to treat Covid-19. The EUA was rescinded on June 15.

To identify differences in prescriptions for these drugs, researchers looked at prescriptions

Walmart Just Made a Huge Announcement. Here’s the 1 Big Thing It Proves

I’ve been curious, to put it lightly, what Walmart was waiting for — why it hadn’t launched its long-rumored Walmart+ subscription service, described as a way to compete with Amazon Prime.

The company was supposedly going to launch Walmart+ in March, but the pandemic impacted plans. That was followed by comments from Walmart CEO C. Douglas McMillon last month that seemed to suggest Walmart might be delaying further.

But on Tuesday, Walmart finally made its announcement.

Walmart+ will be offered starting September 15 at $98 per year or $12.95 per month. Compare that to $119 per year for Amazon Prime, if you pay full price.

The initial package includes the following, with other add-ons promised down the road:

  • Unlimited free delivery, “as fast as same-day on more than 160,000 items from tech and toys to household essentials and groceries,” and for the same prices as in stores
  • Scan & Go,

  • Facebook came under fire last week after site moderators did not remove the Facebook page of a militia group that encouraged violence against protesters, despite being reported hundreds of times. 
  • CEO Mark Zuckerberg said last week that Facebook ultimately did remove the page, but that the removal came too late because moderators hadn’t been adequately trained on Facebook’s new policies against militia groups.
  • “Counter protest? Nah. I fully plan to kill looters and rioters tonight,” one person wrote on the event page.
  • But Facebook didn’t remove the page, according to a new BuzzFeed News report — rather, the group’s own moderators took it down after two protesters were shot in Kenosha, Wisconsin.

Facebook has been on the defensive for the past week over its handling of an event calling for members of a group to

True size of the prehistoric megalodon shark revealed

Researchers at the University of Bristol, in southwestern England, and at the Swansea University, in south Wales, used mathematical calculations to work out the size of the megalodon shark from rare fossil remains of its teeth.

The findings were published Thursday in the journal Scientific Reports.

Researchers told CNN that the giant shark species would have grown up to 18 meters (59 feet) in length and weighed about 48 tons, which is larger than any other shark known to have existed and more than twice the size of a great white shark.

With teeth as big as human hands, it would have had a bite force of more than 10 tons, dwarfing that of a great white shark’s bite force of two tons, researchers said.

Its tail would have been as long as 3.85 meters (12.6 feet) and its fin would have stood at 1.62 meters in length (5.3 feet)
