The OnePlus 8T comes with a slew of great features including 5G, superfast charging and a lovely display. But it’s the cameras on the back that I’m most interested in, so I was excited to get the phone in my hand and take it on a walk through the orange leaves of Edinburgh in the fall.
The 8T has four cameras: a 48-megapixel main camera, a 16-megapixel super wide angle, a 5-megapixel macro camera for close up shots, and an additional monochrome sensor for black and white photos. TL;DR: It can take great shots with the main and wide camera modes, but the black and white sensor is pointless and macro images don’t look good. Read on for more information and to see my test images.
BENGALURU (Reuters) – Shares of Wipro Ltd fell 6.8% on Wednesday, a day after the software services firm posted quarterly organic revenue growth that was lower than peers and disappointed some investors with its plans to revive growth.
Chief Executive Officer Thierry Delaporte, who took the helm in July, said on Tuesday Wipro would focus more on large deals and “prioritize the markets and sectors that are relevant,” without giving more details.
The commentary let down some investors who were hoping for more concrete steps from a company that has underperformed its rivals in the recent past.
“The strategic roadmap from the CEO to revive growth was not as strong as it was expected to be,” IDBI Capital research analyst Urmil Shah said.
Wipro also saw a decline in revenue from its key markets of the Americas and Europe in the second quarter as clients cut
TOKYO (Reuters) – About one-fifth of Japanese companies have no female managers and most say women account for less than 10% of management, a Reuters monthly poll found, highlighting the struggle for the government’s “womenomics” drive to make headway.
The survey results come as Japan is seen to delay its target this year to raise the share of women in leadership posts to 30% as part of the government’s campaign to empower women, dubbed “womenomics”, and cope with Japan’s ageing population.
The Reuters Corporate Survey, conducted Sept. 29-Oct. 8, found 71% of Japanese firms said women accounted for less than 10% of management, while 17% had no female managers at all.
Asked how much scope there was to increase female managers, 55% said by around 10%, a quarter said by about 20%, one in 10 firms said by around 30%, while 5% saw no room for that.
A new model of competitiveness devised by academics at Goldsmiths, University of London in partnership with Microsoft scores almost half (46%) of UK firms in the lowest quadrant, posing a threat to Britain’s prosperity as organisations rally from the impact of COVID-19, and prepare for Brexit as UK-EU negotiations reach their conclusion.
The research finds that more than half (54%) of UK organisations surveyed have seen a decrease in revenue this year compared to last year, with more than one in five (22%) experiencing a drop greater than 15%. The same proportion (22%) had to scrap an existing business model within days of entering the UK’s first lockdown, and 45% of leaders surveyed expect their current business model will cease to exist in 5 years’ time – an increase of 12% over the past year.
However, the model also identifies minimal, rapid changes that UK organisations

They will lead the discussion around standard central processing unit (CPU) and associative processing units (APU), and how a higher-performance and more energy-efficient APU can be designed as an inter-connected array of
In July heavy rains triggered landslides and floods in Nepal that ultimately killed more than 130 people. As soon as the rain started falling, BYU professor Jim Nelson knew things could get bad.
That’s because the water-modeling software created by Nelson and colleagues from NASA under the Group on Earth Observations Global Water Sustainability (GEOGloWS) Partnership can predict the rise and fall of every river on the face of the planet. And in the case of Nepal, the streamflow forecasts were warning of severe flooding throughout the country.
Fortunately, the predictive models, accessible through the BYU software, made it into the hands of emergency agencies in Nepal, saving many lives in what could have been a catastrophic loss of life.

“The age of A.I. has begun,” Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang declared at this year’s GTC. At its GPU Technology Conference this year, Nvidia showcased its innovation to further A.I., noting how the technology could help solve the world’s problems 10 times better and faster.
While Nvidia is most well-known for its graphics cards — and more recently associated with real-time ray tracing — the company is also driving the behind-the-scenes innovation that brings artificial intelligence into our daily lives, from warehouse robots that pack our shipping orders, to self-driving cars and natural language bots that deliver news, search, and information with little latency or delay.
“We love working on extremely hard computing problems that have great impact on the world,” Huang said, noting that the company now has 110 SDKs that target the more than 1 billion CUDA-compatible GPUs that have been shipped. The company says more than 6,500 startups
As we approach the holiday buying season, many of the world’s leading PC vendors are announcing their latest PCs based on Intel’s newest 11th Gen Core processors. I covered Intel’s latest 11th Gen Tigerlake processors and Evo platform and the benefits they bring to the market, including the new Evo experience program. With HP’s latest premium line of notebooks, the company is leveraging the latest in Intel technology with HP’s latest engineering innovations. These new Envy and Spectre notebooks reflect HP’s continued design language while also adding new capabilities thanks to Intel’s 11th Gen Tigerlake processors.
Spectre x360 14 – Productivity Pro
First and most prominently is the new Spectre x360 14, which is a 14” (13.5”) convertible notebook with a 360 hinge. This latest 14” version of the Spectre x360 features a unique 3:2 aspect ratio, which HP has not offered in the
Samsung, Amazon, Roku, Google, Sony, Apple and Microsoft have unveiled their fall lineups of new tech gear with one biggie awaiting a reveal: those new editions of the Apple iPhone, which is expected later this month.
Perhaps you missed the announcements. Or wondered when the products would be available. Good news, Talking Tech fans. We have our annual fall calendar for you, right here.
Several new ones products have already been released, including the updated Series 6 Apple Watch, Amazon’s Fire TV streaming players (some so bare-bones, they don’t have TV controls or 4K streaming support) and a faster, more powerful $329 iPad. What else is in store? Read on.
Amazon’s annual hardware event has come and gone, with a slew of product announcements, from a brand new Echo speaker and Echo Show display, to a cloud-based gaming platform. But the star of Amazon’s smart home is, as always, Alexa. Amazon’s voice assistant continues to expand its reach, connecting with over 140,000 smart home devices, and boasting more than 100 million Alexa-compatible devices installed across its user base. But Alexa’s power isn’t just in its rapidly growing scale and ever-expanding reach.
When I spoke to Daniel Rausch, Amazon’s vice president of smart home and Alexa mobile, before the hardware event, he said Alexa is becoming more independent too. Alexa will soon be able to act on Hunches without asking, to listen for and react to sounds other than a wake word, and to protect your home more actively with an upgrade to Alexa Guard.
