From the rumors I hear, Samsung is very upset with Google's purchase of Motorola Mobile since it makes smartphones. Consequently, Samsung is said to be developing its own proprietary OS in hopes of dropping Android. As far as that goes, Facebook is also pursuing its own OS for a smartphone so it too can avoid using Android. Only time will tell if Google has miscued again as it did with its first smartphone attempt.
Great! I'm sure it is going to be very convenient for the users if the same application runs on different platforms.
Samsung is developing a new OS? If this rumour turns out to be true, I'd wonder what would be the need for a new OS...lesser dependencies on Google and Microsoft?
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
