Google has released Android 7.0, codenamed Nougat. The new version of its mobile operating system allows two apps to be run on the same screen at once, and makes it possible for devices to handle more complex 3D graphics. For now, only Nexus-branded handsets and tablets can get the update. Google says a forthcoming phone from LG will also have the software pre-installed. But other device owners will have to wait for manufacturers to carry out their own checks before they make it possible to install the code. The situation poses a challenge to Google, which wants as many users as possible to upgrade. According to the firm's own figures, only 15% of Android devices in use got the previous version of Android. More»

A Windows 10 update has stopped many popular webcams from working. The update, released earlier this month, stops many cameras being used for Skype or to broadcast and stream footage. The cause seems to be a change in the way Windows 10 handles video so it can be used by more than one program at a time. Microsoft said it was working on a fix but has not given any date for when the patch will be available. 'Poor job' Soon after Windows Update 1607 was distributed in early August, many people started reporting webcam problems to Microsoft via its support site. The trouble affected both webcams connected via USB cables or on the same network and meant either that footage could not be streamed, or that images froze after a while. More»

China's largest personal computer maker Lenovo Group reported recently that net profit for the April-June period surged 64% year-on-year, helped by asset sales and cost cuts, despite a fall in sales. Lenovo said it expects to return to growth over the next year as it continues to integrate with Motorola, which it acquired two years ago, and focuses on higher-end mobile phones. Lenovo's net profit surged 64% in the first quarter from a year earlier to $173 million, beating market expectations. Its Hong Kong-listed shares hit an intra-day high of HK$5.63 before closing up 2.24% at HK$5.47. The company said revenue declined 6% to $10.1 billion in the three months ended June 30 from a year earlier, dragged down by a 9.8% fall in sales in its core Chinese market --which accounts for roughly 30% of its total sales. PC demand continued to soften in the region. More»

Facebook Inc stock has the potential to climb by more than 20 percent over the next year given the growing advertising revenue among its platforms, according to a Barron's report on Sunday. The social media giant, which traded at just under $124 a share on Friday, has seen a recent acceleration in growth in part because of its increasing mobile ad load, or, the number of ads Facebook can serve up to its users, the report said. Facebook also has other avenues of ad load growth, including Instagram, Messenger and WhatsApp, which have yet to fill up on ads, it said. Wall Street expects daily average users, which are 1.1 billion now, to reach 1.7 billion in four years. By then, Facebook will have learned more about how to turn its ads into transactions, leading to growth in the advertising rate it charges, Barron's said. More»
