Apple aims for better iPhone photos using AI and infrared

The quality of the photos smartphones capture has become increasingly important, and Apple just acquired a company called Spectral Edge to ensure future iPhone photos look even better. As Bloomberg reports , Spectral Edge is based in Cambridge, England and focused on developing technology that improves the photos we take automatically. It does this using a combination of capturing an infrared version of each photo taken and then using machine learning to use it for image enhancement. The end result is a crisper photograph with more accurate colors. Clearly Apple is impressed by what Spectral Edge was doing because it acquired the company. Although there`s been no official announcement yet, Peter Ronald Denwood is now listed as a director at the company . He`s better known as one of Apple`s corporate lawyers. It`s also telling that all other board members have been terminated, leaving Apple in control. Read more... More about Apple , Iphone , Spectral Edge , Tech , and Big Tech Companies

Roku Built the Dominant Streaming Box. Now It`s Under Siege

An anonymous reader shares a report: More than 30 million people use a Roku device to navigate the constellation of streaming TV services. The company`s portfolio includes the "stick" ($49.99), which resembles a USB drive; the "puck" ($79.99), a black square with smooth edges and minimal detailing; and a $400 smart TV with Roku`s operating system. The more expensive options offer better image quality and such features as extra digital storage space. As the era of cable and satellite TV dims, Chief Executive Officer Anthony Wood says Roku is poised to keep capitalizing on the boom in streaming video. It`s an independent player that can work well with all the entrants, he says, including new services from Disney and Apple and forthcoming ones from AT&T and Comcast. "It`s satisfying to see the world be all in on streaming," says Wood. "That`s nothing but excellent for Roku." Many investors on Wall Street agree: The company`s stock is up more than 300% this year, and Roku is valued at over $17 billion. Having built the dominant box, Roku is under siege from companies that recognize the value of its business model. Google sells a competing smart TV operating system. Samsung sells more than a dozen smart TVs that don`t use Roku`s operating system. Comcast is giving its internet subscribers a free streaming box. AT&T is offering a box for its customers. Apple is investing billions in streaming shows designed in part to strengthen the appeal of its hardware. But Roku`s biggest challenger is, which is vying for tie-in deals for its Fire TV with smart TV manufacturers and battling for supremacy in international markets. In September it announced a major expansion in Europe, where Roku is less dominant. Read more of this story at Slashdot.

Feds sue Fort Collins home care agency over alleged VA bribe scheme

FORT COLLINS — Two Fort Collins residents are due to plead guilty to federal bribery charges next year in connection with a multi-million dollar kickback scheme within the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. In its complaint filed Thursday, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for Colorado alleges that Glenn and Catherine Beach bribed former Veterans Affairs official Joseph Prince with $122,472 to steer spina bifida patients and beneficiaries to Fort Collins-based Gracewood Home Health Agency LLC for in-home care services. Prince, who worked for the VA in Denver, was charged last year with 44 counts of bribery and money laundering. Federal agents allege that he referred patients to shell companies that he, his family and friends owned. Those companies allegedly overcharged the department for hourly care, pocketed the rest and gave a kickback to Prince.  The scheme is believed to have cost the VA about $18 million in overpayments, with $1.5 million of that going directly to Prince. He is due to go to trial next year, according to court filings. The Beaches were released without bond and are due back in court for a guilty plea hearing on Jan. 9, 2020, according to court records. Federal bribery carries a penalty of two years in prison and a fine of at least $250,000. Nathan Chambers, the attorney of record for Glenn Beach, did not respond to a request for comment Friday.
