Google is reportedly interested in purchasing US-based social video app Firework that lets users share short videos like Chinese player TikTok. According to a report in The Wall Street Journal, Chinese micro-blogging platform Weibo had also shown interest in acquiring Firework but "talks with Google are further along". Based in Redwood City, California, Firework that entered India last month was valued at more than $100 million in a fundraising round earlier this year. TikTok's parent, Beijing-based ByteDance, is valued at around $75 billion. Firework is part of a suite of apps created by Loop Now Technologies, a startup that focuses on next-generation consumer mobile applications. Similar to TikTok that allows users to post 15-second short videos, Firework allows users to create 30-second videos and with "Reveal", its patent-pending technology, will allow creators to take both horizontal and vertical video in one shot from their mobile device. The app is currently available on both Android and iOS smartphones with over a million registered users. Firework has appointed Sunil Nair as CEO and MD for its India operations. My vision for Firework in India is to become more relevant and give our users every opportunity to stay meaningful and seamlessly experience a new view from their lens," Nair said in a statement. In November last year, Facebook also quietly released a standalone app called Lasso to compete with TikTok. On Lasso, which is currently available in the US, users can record themselves dancing and lip-syncing to music, similar to what they can do on TikTok. In addition, Facebook recently roped in former Google employee Jason Toff for a key portfolio...

Popular online reference website Wikipedia went down in several countries after the website was targeted by what it described as a "malicious attack". The server of the Wikimedia Foundation which hosts the site suffered a "massive" Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack, the organization's German account said in a tweet late Friday. In a separate statement, the Wikimedia Foundation said that the attack on the Wikipedia online encyclopedia -- one of the world's most popular websites -- was "ongoing" and teams were working to restore access. DDoS attacks often involve legions of zombie computers -- machines infected with viruses and commanded to simultaneously visit a website. Such a massive onslaught of demand can overwhelm website computer servers, slowing service or knocking them offline. Wikimedia condemned the breach of its server, saying it threatened "everyone's fundamental rights to freely access and share information." Similar cyber-attacks have hammered other popular internet domains including Twitter, Facebook, and Google in recent years. ...

Google said Friday it was banning online ads for unproven medical treatments including most stem cell and gene therapy.  "This new policy will prohibit ads selling treatments that have no established biomedical or scientific basis," Google policy adviser Adrienne Biddings said in a blog post. Biddings said Google will "prohibit advertising for unproven or experimental medical techniques such as most stem cell therapy, cellular (non-stem) therapy and gene therapy." Google will also ban "treatments that are rooted in basic scientific findings and preliminary clinical experience, but currently have insufficient formal clinical testing to justify widespread clinical use," she added. The online giant said it made the decision due to "a rise in bad actors attempting to take advantage of individuals by offering untested, deceptive treatments." The company said this was not an effort to diminish the importance of medical discoveries but maintained that "monitored, regulated clinical trials are the most reliable way to test and prove important medical advances." Google said it took the action after consulting experts in the field and that its move was endorsed by the president of the International Society for Stem Cell Research, Deepak Srivastava. In Google's statement, Srivastava was quoted as saying, "The premature marketing and commercialization of unproven stem cell products threatens public health, their confidence in biomedical research, and undermines the development of legitimate new therapies." Online services have struggled to filter out misleading and deceptive content, including medical hoaxes while remaining open platforms. Earlier this year Facebook and Google-owned YouTube moved to reduce the spread of misleading health care claims after a media report showed the proliferation of bogus...

Camera performance is one of the headline features of Google Pixel phones. As per new leaks, the upcoming Pixel 4 duo will continue this trend with some notable camera enhancements such as 8x zoom support and a new “motion mode” for capturing images of moving objects with a blurry background. The vaunted Night Sight feature for low light photography is also tipped to receive an upgrade on the Pixel 4 pair. Additionally, a leaked image suggests that the Pixel 4 might bring 8x zoom support and will come equipped with 6GB of RAM, a notable upgrade over the 4GB RAM module inside its predecessor. A 9to5Google report, citing information from a reliable authority, claims that the Pixel 4 will introduce a new camera feature called Motion Mode for action photography. This feature will reportedly allow Pixel 4 users to capture images of fast-moving objects by bringing them into focus while blurring the background elements for a dramatic effect, just like standalone cameras.Moreover, the Night Sight mode has reportedly been improved on the Pixel 4, thanks to speed-related enhancements and general improvements. While it is not clear how image quality will be affected, but speed-related enhancements indicate that the image capture and/or processing time has been reduced. It is unclear whether the improvements will make their way to older Pixel phones. More Pixel 4 images and feature leaks have also surfaced online,courtesy XDA Developers. A new leak gives us a glimpse of the Pixel 4's white variant. The front has a familiar design with a thick top bezel housing the selfie camera and soli radar sensors. Over at...

Qualcomm promised on Friday to bring 5G mobile phones to the masses with a high-end modem and said its chips would also power mid-price devices hitting the market next year. Fifth-generation chipsets from Qualcomm, the world's biggest supplier of mobile phone chips, now run on five devices from Samsung Electronics, including the $1,299 Galaxy S10 5G model and the new $2,000 Galaxy Fold. The company at IFA 2019 announced plans to "accelerate 5G global commercialization at scale by expanding its portfolio of 5G mobile platforms across the Snapdragon 8 Series, 7 Series and 6 Series in 2020."Samsung, the world's top smartphone seller, has also put Qualcomm chips in its lower-priced A90 5G model, which had used Samsung chips in an earlier version.Qualcomm President Cristiano Amon predicted such devices would achieve volume and scale. The transition to 5G is going to be faster than earlier transitions," Amon told Reuters on the sidelines of the IFA consumer electronics fair in Berlin. "Now we have to bring it to everyone. More than 20 network operators and a similar number of smartphone makers - from the United States to Europe to China - are launching 5G services and handsets. Amon estimated there were 2.2 billion mobile users that could upgrade. Such bullishness contrasts with the challenges faced by China's Huawei, the No.2 smartphone seller behind Samsung that also unveiled its 5G chipset at IFA. Huawei's consumer business chief Richard Yu touted the Kirin 990 chipset at IFA as the "most powerful" and superior to Qualcomm's Snapdragon 8 series. Due to US trade sanctions, Huawei's 5G-ready Mate 30 smartphone range to be launched on September 19 could be hobbled because...
