Dashlane now supports fingerprint unlocking on select Samsung devices

samsung dashlane

Dashlane’s password manager now taps into the fingerprint scanner on Samsung devices for quick data entry to apps and websites.

The new feature works with the Galaxy S5, S6, S6 Edge, Note 4, and Note Edge.

I activated the feature on my Galaxy Note 4 with relative ease by following the on-screen prompts (be sure you have the latest version of the Dashlane app from the Play Store).

samsung dashlane unlock
In just a few steps you can unlock Dashlane by using the fingerprint scanner on select Samsung devices.

You may have a better experience if you have a Galaxy S6 or S6 Edge because those devices allow you to just place your finger on the scanner, much like Apple’s Touch ID. Whereas with the Note 4, like previous generation Samsung devices, I had to slide my finger over the scanner. It took a couple of triesto get the fingerprint to register, but it eventually did so.

Either way, it’s faster method to use the fingerprint scanner to authorize a password when you go to sign in to a new app or website with Chrome. The new feature is a good update that could make its way to future devices that come with a fingerprint scanner.

Why this matters: Recently, Dashlane integrated with SwiftKey keyboard, which creates a pretty slick method for instantly entering your password on an Android device. Online security is a critical business, and with Google’s continuing efforts to eliminate the password altogether, Dashlane and rivals like LastPass will need to keep one-upping one another to stay relevant. Dashlane promises integration with other brands of devices in the near future (we suspect as more and more phones ship with fingerprint readers).

Android Wear Update to Bring Watch-to-Watch Sharing, Interactive Faces

moto_360_metal_bands.jpg
While Google announced new features for its Android Wear OS at the Google I/O 2015 in May, rumours and leaks for the next OS version have already started surfacing on the Internet. A report has suggested couple of major features that will come with the next Android Wear OS version.

The first feature said to arrive in the next Android Wear version is the single tap gesture. The gesture would let users make visual changes, launch activities, in-line expansion and more using one tap on the watch face, saving users the inconvenience of making several swipes, reports Phandroid.

It is worth mentioning that some watch faces available from Google Play already have the single tap gesture. However, those watch face developers are able to bring this feature using a hacked method – access of service window or use of invisible buttons. These might result in system conflicts. The introduction of the feature in the next update would make the function native to Android Wear.

android_wear_interactive_watchface_phandroid.jpgThe report also claims that with the next update, the function to launch voice commands using a single tap on the watch face display would be replaced completely by the new swift left gesture that was introduced with Android 5.1 update for Android Wear.

As per the document provided to the website, Google has given four examples of the functionality of the single tap gesture – changes to watch faces, state changes (such as weather), revealing more information (such as fitness graph), and launching an activity (will slide from right side of the watch face). It has been understood that Google, upon the launch of next Android Wear, would promote the interactive watch faces under a separate collection in Google Play.

android_wear_interactive_watchface_launch_activity_phandroid.jpgThe second important feature said to be included in the next Android Wear OS version is the watch-to-watch communication called Together. The feature is said to have taken clues from Apple Watch’s functionality using which users can send heart beats and doodles to other Apple Watch users. In Android Wear, users would be able to send messages, stickers, emojis, and doodles.

The clues suggesting the existence of the feature come from some code strings. It has been also found out that the feature is limited to a single watch face, but the report notes that the code strings obtained were quite old, and it is possible Google would make changes to it ahead of launch. Also mentioned is that LG G Watch R, after the next Android Wear update, would be receiving the Wi-Fi upgrade. The feature was missing from the Android 5.1.1 update for Android Wear.

Ather Energy to Begin Test Drives for Its Smart Scooter in India

India’s first premium electric smart scooter will soon be available for test drives by October or November this year, as the Bengaluru-based automotive startup Ather Energy gears up for the launch of its first scooter in 2016.

Ather Energy’s first scooter, the S340, has received thousands of enquiries on its website, and will offer a test drive to potential customers starting with Bengaluru, followed by Chennai and Delhi. Co-founder Tarun Mehta said that the scooter will be priced under Rs. 1,00,000, with a formal price announcement likely three months from now.

The co-founders believe that this space is ripe for disruption, as locally available electric-scooters lack either the speed or the smarts, with a majority of them running on lead-acid batteries.

“Typically we have electric scooters which have a top speed of 25-40kmph, they have poor acceleration, and a battery life of 5,000-6,000 kilometres, and a 6-8 hour charging time. Unlike these, our scooter doesn’t feel like a step down from a petrol scooter,” Tarun Mehta said, speaking with NDTV Gadgets.

Atherenergy_body.jpgAther’s smart scooter is specced to deliver a top speed of 75kmph, and will do 0-60kmph in 11 seconds, have an estimated driving range of 50-100 kilometres, and recharge to about 90 percent capacity in an hour. The lithium-ion battery will have a life-cycle of 50,000 kilometres, with a lifespan of five to six years. “We don’t let the battery charge up to 100 percent, otherwise you will just damage the battery for an extra 2-3 kilometres,” Mehta said.

Ather has used a digital battery system, which gives a lot more control and feedback, enabling features like remote firmware upgrades. The battery pack is built out of the 18650 cell format, which is also used by Tesla on its Model S electric car. Compared to an elastic battery pack, Mehta said it offers higher energy density and is safer. He estimates that the S340’s battery should be able to achieve two to three times the estimated life stated on the specifications.

“We’ve done a lot of interesting work with the battery management system, we’ve gone for a massive amount of integration, the BMS is integrated inside the battery pack, the battery pack itself is integrated into the vehicle chassis. That has allowed us to significantly cut down on costs, weight, and overall thermal performance.” Mehta said. “Taking the heat off an off-the-shelf battery pack becomes quite difficult, you’ll have to do a lot of retrofit around it. We’ve gone for a structural battery pack, which automatically allows us to improve cooling significantly. Had we taken off-the-shelf specs, we wouldn’t have come up with similar performance specs at this price.” he added.

Taiwanese company Gogoro launched its smart scooter last month at $4,100 (roughly Rs. 2,60,000). According to Mehta, the specs offered by Gogoro are about 20 percent more than the S340. While it will be priced higher than petrol-powered scooters, Mehta said that they’re creating a whole new vehicle category, and therefore is not trying to match its pricing to the existing scooter category. “What we are trying to do is make sure the vehicle is priced below Rs. 1,00,000, including the price of the battery.” he said.

The battery can be managed remotely using a smartphone, and will manage itself during long breaks in Vacation mode. The S340 also has an Android-based smart dashboard that helps with smart features like navigation and theft protection.

The company raised $1 million (roughly Rs. 6.3 crores) in a seed funding round led by Flipkart founders led by Sachin Bansal and Binny Bansal. Its most recent round was a $12 million (roughly Rs. 76 crores) funding round was a Series A from Tiger Global in May 2015.

Object Theory takes aim at HoloLens business apps

Microsoft HoloLens

While augmented and virtual reality are often associated with video games, Microsoft has highlighted enterprise plans for HoloLens, its augmented reality headset.

In one HoloLens video, Microsoft shows the self-contained computer being used to review building plans and design a motorcycle as well as to play Minecraft.

Before HoloLens appears in offices, though, there have to be applications that can overlay 3D images on the real world. While Microsoft will most likely develop software for the HoloLens, outside companies will also create applications for the device.

This week, Object Theory launched as one of the early companies to build enterprise software for the HoloLens. It was founded by Michael Hoffman, who mostly recently worked at Microsoft as one of the lead HoloLens engineers, and Raven Zachary, who started a company that built mobile apps for Whole Foods and Starbucks before selling the business to Wal-Mart in 2012.

Existing game studios will handle entertainment software, said Zachary. Object Theory, in Portland, Oregon, will build HoloLens applications for businesses.

Hoffman and Zachary won’t say if they have any clients booked yet, but they said business are interested in learning if HoloLens is right for them.

At Microsoft, Hoffman worked on HoloLens partnerships with outside companies, and the reaction to the device was positive, he said. Businesses believe “the hardware has the real ability to generate value,” he said.

Companies in medical imaging, computer-aided design and other fields have contacted Object Theory, Hoffman said. With HoloLens, doctors could study parts of the human body like the skeletal system and 3D designers could view their projects in scale.

Zachary, who worked for Wal-Mart after the company bought his business, sees HoloLens being used in retail environments. High-end jewelry and fashion stores and car dealerships could use HoloLens to show customers products that are customized to their specifications. Holograms can help retailers plan store layouts and shelf placement, among other in-store uses, he said.

Object Theory can use the Unity game engine to create programs that will be similar to what a business would experience using a HoloLens program, Zachary said.

Virtual and augmented reality always seem to be on the cusp of becoming mainstream, said Hoffman. What makes this time different is advances in the technology behind augmented reality, like gesture recognition, and in underlying components like batteries.

“We’re getting to the point where all of the off-the-shelf technology is there, but we needed other technologies to be invented,” said Hoffman.

The investments that major tech players are making in virtual reality also show the space is maturing, said Zachary. Other companies working on the technology include Facebook’s Oculus VR business, which is coming out with a virtual reality headset next year, and Google, with its Cardboard virtual reality platform. Meanwhile, Sony is developing a virtual-reality headset code-named Project Morpheus that can work with its PlayStation game console. Apple has the tech community guessing at its virtual reality plans since it posted job listings for engineers with a background in the technology.

For now, Object Theory will stick with building applications for HoloLens.

“As long as it makes sense from a business perspective, we would just stay focused on HoloLens and become really good at that,” Hoffman said. He’s confident Microsoft is dedicated to making the headset commercially viable.

“Being close to HoloLens, I have confidence this project is real and Microsoft is in it for the long haul,” he said.

Google to Release Monthly Data on Self-Driving Car Accidents

rinspeed_budii_self_driving_car_interior_reuters.jpg
Google Inc said it would give monthly updates of accidents involving its driverless cars.The report for May showed Google cars had been involved in 12 accidents since the company first began testing its self-driving cars in 2009, mostly involving rear-ending.

Google said one of its vehicles was rear-ended at a stoplight in California on Thursday, bringing the total count to 13 accidents.

“That could mean that the vehicles tend to stop more quickly than human drivers expect,” public interest group Consumer Watchdog said.

A Google spokeswoman said the consumer watchdog conclusion was erroneous because most of the rear-end accidents occurred when the vehicle was stopped.

Consumer Watchdog called for more details on the accidents, including statementsfrom witnesses and other drivers.

None of these accidents were caused by a fault with the car, Google said.

Google’s self-driving-car program director, Chris Urmson, said in May that the cars have been involved in 11 accidents.

The accidents mostly involved Google’s self-driving Lexus RX450h sport utility vehicles.

Google is about to take its pod-like prototype vehicles off the test track and on to Mountain View, California, roads this summer. The company described the two-seater car as “the world’s first fully self-driving vehicle.”

Built in Detroit by auto supplier Roush Industries, the prototypes will be equipped with removable steering wheels, brake pedals and accelerator pedals so test engineers can “take over driving if needed,” Urmson said in May.

First Apple HomeKit Devices Launched Ahead of WWDC 2015

eve_sensor_website.jpg
Days before the onset of Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), companies have launched their first device that will be HomeKit-compatible and available to buy soon. HomeKit, Apple’s framework for home automation and IoT devices to work with its ecosystem, was introduced at last year’s WWDC conferencealongside the iOS 8 SDK.

Since that time, manufacturers have been working to have their devices certified for the HomeKit platform. Apart from a set of APIs, HomeKit is also a standardised network protocol that allow apps and Siri to control various home automated services and gadgets within the house.

Lutron, iHome, Elgato, Ecobee, and Insteon have launched the first consumer devices that will have been certified to work on Apple’s Homekit platform – Caséta Wireless Lighting Starter Kit with Smart Bridge, iSP5 SmartPlug, Eve connected home sensors, the Ecobee3 Wi-Fi Thermostat, and Insteon Hub, respectively.

caseta_bridge_iphone_app_amazon.jpgThe Caséta Wireless Lighting Starter Kit made by Lutron includes one Smart Bridge, two Caséta Wireless dimmers (which support dimmable LED, halogen, and incandescent bulbs), two remotes, and two pedestals. The Smart Bridge lets users control the wireless dimmers using Siri commands on iPhone and iPad devices.

The iSP5 SmartPlug made by iHome can fit into a wall socket and controls devices like lamps, fans, and other devices that are connected with the plug via the use of Siri voice commands or the iHome Control app. Additionally, the SmartPlug comes with support for different ‘Scenes’ to control multiple devices. The app will let users to group multiple SmartPlugs together and give a single command to all. It is worth mentioning that up to two SmartPlugs can be fitted in one wall socket and would require Wi-Fi connectivity to work.

Elgato’s “Eve” connected home sensors will let iOS users keep a check on air quality, smoke, humidity, air pressure, energy and even water consumption via an app. The kit includes different sensors that monitor different aspects. While the Eve Room checks the indoor air quality, Eve Weather monitors outdoor temperature and humidity. Eve Door and Window alert users for open and closed points for entry in the house. Lastly, Eve Energy handles the energy consumption data and the control of other electronic devices. Eve Energy however is only available with European sockets. Each sensor can work on Siri voice commands. An iOS app is also available to switch the electronic device on or off.

ihome_smartplug_homekit.jpgWith the Ecobee3 Wi-Fi thermostat, users would be able to control the room’s temperature via Siri voice commands from iPhone and iPad devices. The device is also the first HomeKit-enabled thermostat available to consumers. Ecobee3 can also be grouped with other HomeKit devices.

Insteon Hub, which was first seen at CES this year, lets users control Insteon’s range of smart home products such as LED bulbs, cameras, wall outlets, keypads, switches and more via the Insteon+ app. The new hub can also connect with the Nest thermostat.

As for the pricing, the Caséta Wireless Lighting Starter Kit is available for $229.95 (roughly Rs. 14,700) starting Wednesday. The iSP5 SmartPlug pre-order will be available starting June 15 at $39.99 (roughly Rs. 2,500) as mentioned by MacRumors, while the Eve sensors will also go for pre-orders starting Wednesday with price range from $39.95 (roughly Rs. 2,500) to $79.95 (roughly Rs. 5,100) depending on the sensor. The Ecobee3 along with a sensor will be available for pre orders starting June 23 for $229 (roughly Rs. 14,600), while the Insteon Hub is available to buy online for $149.99 (roughly Rs. 9,600).

mediatek_helio_p10.jpg
MediaTek on Monday announced the launch of the Helio P10, a SoC for ‘high-performance, super slim smartphones.’ The Helio P10 features a 2GHz true octa-core 64-bit Cortex-A53 CPU and a 700MHz dual-core 64-bit Mali-T860 GPU. Announced at the sidelines of Computex in Taiwan, the Helio P10 will be available to OEMs in Q3 2015 and is expected to be in consumer products in late 2015.

The P10 is the first chip in the new Helio P family, a series that comes with features such as WorldMode LTE Cat-6, supporting 2×20 carrier aggregation with 300/50Mbps data speed; MediaTek’s CorePilot task scheduling algorithm, which sends workloads to the most suitable computing device – CPU, GPU, or both; and, MediaTek’s Visual Processing Application – non-contact Heart Rate Monitoring, which uses only a smartphone’s video camera to take a heart rate reading.

“The P series will provide OEM smartphone makers with greater design flexibility to meet consumer demands for slim form-factors, which provide dynamic multimedia experiences,” said Jeffrey Ju, Senior Vice President, MediaTek. “The P10 enables state-of-the-art mobile computing and multimedia features all while balancing performance and battery life.”

The Helio P10 is the first product to use TSMC’s 28nm HPC+ process, which allows for reduced processor power consumption. With the Helio P10, MediaTek is claiming up to 30 percent power savings in certain usage scenarios.

The P10 also comes with support for up to 21-megapixel cameras and a new TrueBright image processing engine. MediaTek is boasting the P10 enables improved colour capture and low-light performance, dual rear-camera support, amongst other camera-related enhancements; high-fidelity audio support; and display-related improvements thanks to MiraVision 2.0.

Chinese Researchers Develop ATM With Facial Recognition Technology

atm_facial_recognition_china_nbc_24_youtube_screenshot.jpg
Chinese researchers have successfully developed the first automated teller machine (ATM) with facial recognition technology to reduce the risk of theft, media reports said.

The developers include Tsinghua University and Tzekwan Technology, a Hangzhou firm in eastern China’s Zhejiang province that provides security protection for financial transactions, South China Morning Post quoted Chinese official media as saying.

Tzekwan chairman Gu Zikun, an anti-counterfeit technology expert, believes the technology will curb ATM-related crimes.

China currently relies mostly on imported ATM technology, the report said, but the new machine – which combines high-speed banknote handling, improved counterfeit-bill recognition and facial recognition – was wholly Chinese.

Gu said the product had passed the authorities certification and would soon be available on the market. It is unclear who will manufacture the ATMs and how it will collect facial data.

The news come a week after the state launched its “Made in China” campaign, which aims to transition the mainland from a manufacturing hub for low-end goods to high-quality products within the next 10 years.

Cash machines using fingerprint authentication have sprung up in countries like Chile and Colombia. These biometrics ATMs are not being used by some countries, such as the United States, because of privacy concerns and its high cost.

The new ATMs are expected to connect with the country’s banks and public security networks, which guarantees that only cardholders withdraw money, even if someone else knows the password.

But opponents to the technology have taken their concerns about privacy and accuracy online. “What happens if someone had plastic surgery to look like someone else,” one user asked.
