Potential for human superbugs in cow manure: study

Researchers say genes from a cow's gut bacteria can increase resistance to antibioticsCow manure, commonly used to fertilize vegetable crops, contains a high number of genes that can fuel resistance to antibiotics, a US study out Tuesday found. These genes come from the cows' gut bacteria, and while none have yet been found in superbugs that are infecting humans, researchers said the potential is real. The research was done by scientists at Yale University, who sampled manure from a handful of dairy cows at a farm in Connecticut. In those samples, they found 80 unique antibiotic resistance genes.

A Bigger iPhone 6 May Be Delayed for Battery IssuesApple's iPhone 6 could arrive in 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch variations this year, but those clamoring for the latter may have to hold their breath a bit longer. According to Taiwan's Commercial Times, the purported phablet-sized iPhone could be delayed a year due to battery production issues. As pointed out by Cnet, battery manufacturers are having a hard time crafting a battery that would fit within the thin frame Apple wants for its 5.5-incher.

WSJ: iPhone is a collateral victim of T-Mobile’s ‘Uncarrier’ attacks

WSJ: iPhone is a collateral victim of T-Mobile’s ‘Uncarrier’ attacksHandset makers may be significantly affected by the carriers’ shift from subsidized to full price smartphone purchases, The Wall Street Journal reports, with Apple’s iPhone singled out as a device that could see significant harm. T-Mobile’s ‘Uncarrier’ no-contract initiatives did not go unseen in the U.S., with competitors looking to adapt their offers as well. T-Mobile replaced handset subsidies – which offered users the ability to purchase new devices for lower price, as long as they agreed to ink a costly two-year agreement – with a new purchase model that allows buyers to choose a cheaper service plan with a new handset, and pay for the device separately in installments over a certain period of time. Because Apple’s iPhone is

Amazon’s smartphone reportedly favors tilting gestures over buttons

Amazon's smartphone reportedly favors tilting gestures over buttonsAfter leaking the first photos of a prototype, BGR is back today claiming to have more details about Amazon's upcoming smartphone. That includes a deeper look at the unique gestures and tilt-based user interface made possible by the four infrared cameras on the front of the device. Amazon's proprietary cameras and head-tracking system will work alongside various sensors to create a 3D effect as the device is shifted around in your hand. "By tilting the handset in different directions while the device is in use, Amazon’s interface will display additional information on the screen without the user having to touch or tap anything," BGR says.

Bland Theft Auto: China censorship weighs on games consoles

By Paul Carsten BEIJING (Reuters) – China has fully lifted a 14-year ban on selling video game consoles, but foreign console makers hoping to make a killing in a potentially huge new market will first have to find a way around the country’s onerous censorship rules. The likes of Microsoft Corp, Sony Corp and Nintendo Co will henceforth be able to manufacture and sell consoles in China through “foreign-invested enterprises” in Shanghai’s free trade zone, Shanghai’s government said on its website on Monday. China is the world’s third biggest gaming market, where revenues grew by more than a third in 2012 to nearly $14 billion last year, but piracy and the dominance of PC and mobile gaming will leave little room for legitimate console and game sales. Console games will also have to win approval from Shanghai’s local culture department, which will ensure they do not harm China’s national unity, territorial integrity or reputation – or promote racial hatred, obscenity, gambling, violence or drugs.

IBM, Atos, HP looking at Lufthansa IT infrastructure unit: source

The logo of German air carrier Lufthansa is pictured at Fraport airport in FrankfurtLufthansa's IT infrastructure business, which the airline is trying to sell, is drawing interest from big IT groups IBM, Hewlett-Packard and France's Atos, a source familiar with the matter told Reuters. The German airline earlier this month said it was seeking a buyer for the business, part of its IT unit Lufthansa Systems, and has already held some early talks with interested parties. The infrastructure business, which provides data centers, networks and telephony, requires a high level of investment and economies of scale are critical, Lufthansa said then, explaining its decision to exit. Deutsche Telekom unit T-Systems had also considered the sale, but then decided not to make an offer, the source said.

Raymond James and Cantor Fitzgerald upgraded the stock to their equivalent of a "buy" rating, citing strong growth prospects from international markets.

China Mobile books lowest quarterly profit in five years as apps sap revenue

By Paul Carsten BEIJING (Reuters) – China Mobile Ltd booked its lowest quarterly profit in five years as the world’s biggest mobile carrier by subscribers struggled to compete with mobile Internet applications offering services such as messaging. China Mobile’s traditional revenue sources such as phone calls and short messaging services (SMS) have rapidly lost out to apps such as Tencent Holdings Ltd’s popular WeChat, which allows smartphone users to communicate over data networks. To capitalize on increased data demand – and recover higher-spending customers from rivals China Unicom Hong Kong Ltd and China Telecom Corp Ltd – China Mobile has been investing heavily in fourth-generation mobile networks. The company complimented 4G’s faster connection speeds in the first quarter by starting sales of Apple Inc’s popular iPhone, to stem the flow of defectors turned off by China’s Mobile’s slower 3G network and lack of iPhone.

Espionage hacking grows, with more from east Europe: Verizon study

A Verizon logo is seen during the International CTIA WIRELESS Conference & Exposition in New Orleans, LouisianaBy Joseph Menn SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) – Hacking for espionage purposes is sharply increasing, with groups or national governments from Eastern Europe playing a growing role, according to one of the most comprehensive annual studies of computer intrusions. Spying intrusions traced back to any country in 2013 were blamed on residents of China and other East Asian nations 49 percent of the time, but Eastern European countries, especially Russian-speaking nations, were the suspected launching site for 21 percent of breaches, Verizon Communications Inc's said in its annual Data Breach Investigations Report. Though the overall number of spying incidents studied tripled to 511 from total in the 2013 Verizon report, most of that increase is due to the addition of new data sources. Even looking at just the same contributors as before, however, espionage cases grew, said Verizon investigator Bryan Sartin.
