Microsoft releases universal real-time translator for Skype
Microsoft has taken its Skype Translator Preview out of closed beta and has made it available to anyone running Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 Technical Preview, no sign-up needed. The announcement was posted on the Microsoft Skype blog last week.At this point, the translator only supports Italian, Mandarin, and Spanish in spoken word. For plain-text instant messaging, however, it supports more than 50 languages, including Klingon. Somehow, I suspect that one may get used more than the human languages.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here Read More

LTE smartphones are becoming faster and cheaper
High-end smartphones offer high-speed wireless connections—but few mobile operators have made the infrastructure investments required to keep up with them. The arrival of cheaper phones with 300Mbps LTE capabilities may encourage that investment.LTE chips with real-world download speeds over 100Mbps have become a standard feature on high-end smartphones, while smartphones costing under US$100 now include LTE chips, albeit slower ones.Better cameras, screens and design have gotten most of the attention on this year’s crop of high-end smartphones, but support for the latest versions of LTE, a rarity a year ago, has become a standard feature. Download speeds on the HTC One M9 and the LG G4 top out at 450Mbps on paper, while the Samsung Galaxy S6 is theoretically capable of 300Mbps.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here Read More

IT Resume Makeover: Just the facts (and only the pertinent ones)
David Thorburn-Gundlach's resume might as well have been covered by a cloak of invisibility, at least as far as recruiters and hiring managers were concerned. Though the nine-page document included a wealth of technical skills, knowledge and facts, it wasn't doing him any favors. In fact, it was hiding his true value to potential employers.But what Thorburn-Gundlach did have going for him was an awareness that his resume was more of a hindrance than a help, and that it was badly out-of-date.Out-of-date and much too long "I had invested a lot of time and effort into crafting a resume -- 10 years ago! I knew my resume was entirely out of date, and that the focus of my career has since changed. I figured it needed modernization to bring it into line with current presentations, since styles change," Thorburn-Gundlach says.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here Read More
