News on the sidelines the week of October 15-23

Johnny Eve joins Airbnb in a joint collaboration

Airbnb announced that it has signed a contract with Johnny Eve, the legendary former Apple designer, and his current company, LoveFrom, to be responsible for developing products and services coming from Apple. Johnny and the company he founded after leaving Apple specializes in industrial and technical design, that is, he designs products as well as applications. It is reported that Airbnb is planning a new phase in the company's history, which will start with the company's public IPO, which is expected at the end of this year; It is expected that, later, a number of services will be launched for it.

5G networks reduce the battery life of the iPhone two hours

The famous Tom's Guide team tested battery life over 5G networks and how it affects the battery. Apple at its conference said that it had developed technologies that improve battery performance to reduce the impact of 5G, and then it was recognized that Apple reduced the size of the battery to be the only one that supported 5G and reduced battery capacity. The report on Tom's Guide said that running it reduces the battery life of the iPhone by two hours on the iPhone 12 and two and a half hours on the iPhone 12 Pro, which is a large percentage compared to other companies (Android) that have not developed any technologies to extend the life of the battery.

It is possible that Apple's technology did not work because the team was using the phone to open a new website once every 30 seconds, which made it permanent on 5G networks and did not switch to 4G automatically as Apple said. In any case, this is a comparison of battery performance on 4G / 5G networks and Apple's comparison with other Samsung, Google and OnePlus.

Huawei: The Kirin 9000 processor is the fastest processor in the world

Huawei announced its Kirin 9000 processor, which it said is the fastest processor ever, surpassing the Samsung Exynos 1080 processor and even the Apple A14 processor, and said it is 10% faster than the SD865 + processor.

They said that compared to the SD865, the Huawei processor is 25% faster in the CPU, 150% in the NPU and 50% in the GPU.

Leak: The fingerprint in the screen is coming to the iPhone

A leak said that Apple is currently testing a built-in fingerprint scanner; In the past, several reports have said that Apple wants to adopt this technology and that it is conducting research with Qualcomm to develop its own technologies.

America begins investigations of Google's monopoly charges

The US Department of Justice announced the beginning of investigations with Google into the charge of monopoly. The investigation came after a number of states agreed that Google would destroy Internet competition. The states demanded the activation of the Sherman Antitrust Act, a law that was used in the conflict with AT&T in 1974 and against Microsoft in 1998. They accused Google of taking a number of steps to weaken competitors, including:

  • Entering into exclusive agreements that prohibit the pre-installation of competing search services.
  • A long-term agreement with Apple to make Google the default search engine in its Safari browser and various Apple tools.
  • Taking steps to prevent companies from removing search engines and some of their applications regardless of consumer preference.
  • Using the profits obtained from monopolistic practices to buy preferential transactions for its search engine, thus generating new profits and weakening competitors, buying other services and so on and what they called a "monopoly self-reinforcement cycle" continues.

Google: We have no monopoly and ask Firefox and Yahoo

Google commented on the charges against it and said that the charges are incorrect and that their company has not done anything illegal and customers have not been forced to use Google's services and search engine. The company said that investigators can return to the previous agreement of Mozilla Firefox with Yahoo, to become the latter as the main engine instead of Google; But they were surprised that the user changes the engine to become Google, and accordingly, they later contracted with them and terminated Yahoo's contract. Google added that its money is now the main financier for Firefox, which is a competitor to the Chrome browser, which denies the charge of weakening competitors. Here, Google is financing its competitor.
