KICKSTARTER: Rocki Play - An inexpensive Multi-Room WiFi Music System for any Speaker
Posted by Arne Hess - at 18:35 CET under 01 - General News

One of the co-founders of the extremely successful Kickstarter financed smartwatch Omate TrueSmart smartwatch has something new for us which is said to "revolutionize the music world" with the first WiFi music system for every phone, speaker and everyone! There are countless Bluetooth speakers in the market as well as some well established wireless multi-room music systems like Sonos; however the futuristic and extremely affordable Rocki is going a slightly different way. Instead of building another WiFi speaker system, Rocki is said to transform every existing speaker into a WiFi music system, whether it is old or new. The Rocki Play is a clever little device that simply plugs into the audio input of any speaker system.

Posted by Arne Hess - at 11:09 CET under 01 - General News

While Telefónica O2 Germany announced the fastest German LTE-A cell yesterday, Vodafone Germany went a step further by also announcing its LTE-Advanced trial in Dresden. However, unlike O2 Germany, which is only covering its own office building in Munich, Vodafone Germany said it's covering the whole area around the Technische Universität Dresden (University of Technology), where Vodafone operates a professorship for mobile communication. Like O2 in Munich and EE in London, Vodafone is partnering in Dresden with Huawei which delivered the technology and like the other two carriers, Vodafone is using carrier aggregation on the LTE 800 MHz and LTE 2600 MHz bands which are bundled to archive 225 Mbps.

BREAKTHROUGH: Telefónica O2 Germany launches the fastest LTE Radio Cell in Germany as well as VoLTE
Posted by Arne Hess - at 17:26 CET under 01 - General News

While EE just launched a whole Cat 6 LTE network with 300 Mbps in London, Telefónica O2 Germany announced the launch of - well - Germany's fastest LTE radio cell at the Telefónica building in Munich. Speeds up to a data transmission rate of 225 Mbps are achieved. As Telefónica said in its press release, it achieved this enormous transmission rates because the base stations in question provide up to 150 Mbps in the 2.6-GHz band and up to 75 Mbps at 800 MHz. By combining these data streams, download speeds of up to 225 Mbps were reached. While the used new category 6 (Cat 6) LTE devices are yet not commercially available, Telefónica used prototypes from Huawei.

REGULATION: European EASA allows the use of Personal Electronic Devices on Board of Aircrafts
Posted by Arne Hess - at 18:41 CET under 01 - General News

That was fast! Following North American's FAA decision to allow the gate to gate use of personal electronic devices, the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) announced today that it will publish by the end of November 2013 guidance which will extend to all phases of flight the possibility to use personal electronic devices (PED) such as tablets, smartphones, e-readers and MP3 players as long as the devices are in "Flight Mode" or "Airplane Mode". Current EASA guidance allows the use of PED on aircraft, except during taxiing, take-off and landing. Bulky PED such as laptop computers will need to be stowed during taxiing, take-off and landing. The changes above will be applicable to aircraft operated by European airlines.
