T-Mobile’s “Digits” program revamps the phone number

Ars Technica - 1 hour 11 min ago


T-Mobile has announced the launch of its "Digits" program, coming May 31. Digits is a revamp of how T-Mobile phone numbers work, virtualizing customer numbers so they can work across multiple devices. It sounds a lot like Google Voice—rather than having a phone number tied to a single SIM card or a device, numbers are now account-based, and you can "log in" to your phone number on several devices.

T-Mobile says the new phone number system will work "across virtually all connected devices," allowing multiple phones, tablets, and PCs to get texts and calls. This means T-Mobile needs apps across all those platforms, with the press release citing "native seamless integration" in Samsung Android phones, Android and iOS apps, and a browser interface for PCs.

The new phone number system is free to all T-Mobile customers. Customers can also buy an extra phone number for $10 or by signing up to the $5-per-month "T-Mobile One Plus" package, which is a bundle of extra features like a mobile hotspot and in-flight Wi-Fi. Here, the "extra number" use case matches what Google Voice users have been doing for years: a personal and business number, or a number to give to online sales sites like Craigslist, or an easily dumpable number for your Tinder dates. Unlike Google Voice, the $10 fee means T-Mobile has no problem distributing a ton of phone numbers, and the mobile telco says you can access up to five lines from a single device.

IDG Contributor Network: What's NOW in digital transformation? - IT industry - 1 hour 32 min ago

A few times each year, senior digital executives from around the world assemble at Forrester's Digital Transformation Summit to check in with each other and Forrester analysts to discuss the current state of digital evolution.  I was pleased to be invited as a guest to the sold-out event, held in early May in Chicago. For those who couldn't spare the two days, here is a summary of key insights and trends.

While there were updates on familiar themes from prior years, such as Agile practices, the Internet of Things (IoT) and cloud computing, the major shift this year has been a central focus on Artificial Intelligence (AI) across industries and a need for an even more aggressive approach to digital transformation in order to compete. This shift breaks into five inter-related insights.

Medicinal use for marijuana confirmed: CBD helps kids with rare epilepsy

Ars Technica - 3 hours 11 min ago

In a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial—the gold-standard design—a component of marijuana called cannabidiol (CBD) reduced seizures in children with a rare and devastating form of epilepsy.

The results, published in the New England Journal of Medicine, provide the first solid evidence that marijuana can be used to treat epilepsy, something some patient groups and advocates have argued for years. It also adds to mounting data supporting the medicinal value of the controversial plant. The Drug Enforcement Administration currently lists marijuana as a Schedule I drug, which are those with no accepted medical use but a high potential for abuse.

A landmark review of marijuana research, released in January by the National Academies of Science, Engineering, and Medicine, concluded that marijuana can effectively treat chronic pain in some patients. But for other conditions, including epilepsy, the data is still inconclusive. Earlier trials on epilepsy, for instance, were small or suboptimal, and provided mixed results.

Gaming on Dell’s 8K $5,000 monitor

Ars Technica - 3 hours 32 min ago

Mark Walton

Specs: Dell UltraSharp UP3218K Size 32 inches Resolution 8K 7680×4320 at 60Hz Response time 6ms (grey to grey) Brightness 400 cd/m² Contrast 1300:1 Colour depth True 10-bit Colour spaces 100 percent Adobe RGB colour gamut, sRGB, and Rec 709. 98 percent DCI-P3 Dimensions 72cm x 21.5cm x 61.7cm with stand, 72cm x 5.3cm x 42cm without stand Inputs 2x DisplayPort 1.4 Ports 4x USB 3.0, 3.5mm line out Warranty 3 years Price $5000 (UK price TBC)

While Acer's 4K, HDR-ready, 144Hz Predator X27 gaming monitor is pretty hot, Dell has something even better: the 8K Dell UltraSharp UP3218K (buy here). This, if you're unfamiliar, is a display that sports a whopping 7680×4320 pixels spread over a 32-inch 10-bit IPS panel. It can display a 33-megapixel image pixel-for-pixel at a density of 280ppi, and at 100 percent of the Adobe RGB colour space. It requires the bandwidth of two DisplayPort 1.4 ports to function, and, predictably, it costs just shy of $5,000 (UK release and price still TBC, but don't expect much change from £5,000).

But then, this is a display that is so far ahead of the curve that $5,000 seems almost reasonable. In addition to all those pixels running at 60Hz, the 10-bit IPS panel also covers 100 percent of the sRGB colour space, 100 percent of Rec 709, and 98 percent of DCI-P3. Whatever creative field you're in—photography, cinematography, graphic design, publishing, game development—Dell's 8K monitor has you covered. It's even factory calibrated to a Delta E of less than two.
