GoPro’s Drone Initiative Crashes With Karma Recall

gopro-karma-droneGoPro’s ambitious plans to be a player in the fledgling drone market crashed last week when it had to announce a product recall due to Karma UAV units falling from the sky.

The company needed to resolve a performance issue related to loss of power during operation, it said. It indicated it would resume shipment of Karma at some point, but didn’t suggest when.

The Karma recall likely will have a significant financial impact on GoPro.

“With the amount of competition in the consumer drone space, it is imperative to satisfy demand, or that demand will shift to another product,” said Michael Blades, a senior industry analyst at Frost & Sullivan.

“The longer Karma is sidelined, the less chance it has of grabbing significant market share,” he told TechNewsWorld.

Revenue Hit

GoPro’s stock price had begun slipping before the recall and has continued to decline steadily, Blades added.

“The impact will be on stock price and revenue,” he said.

GoPro already had lowered its fourth-quarter revenue forecasts because it launched Karma later than planned, explained Ken Hyers, director of wireless device strategies at Strategy Analytics.

“In the two weeks it was available, GoPro sold around 2,500 Karma drones and surely had been anticipating strong sales for the Karma drone from Thanksgiving on. That revenue is now lost,” he told TechNewsWorld.

“Worse, GoPro had been counting on the Karma to drive sales of its new GoPro Hero5 and Hero5 Session cameras, and now that opportunity has also been lost,” Hyers added.

Black Eye

Since Karma was GoPro’s first UAV, the drone was supposed to establish the company’s reputation in the market. It has done that — but not in a good way.

“Given that the Karma is GoPro’s first drone, and in many ways was seen as the future of the company, it’s recall has to be viewed as devastating for its reputation as a drone maker and its ambitions in the drone space,” said Hyers.

“Drone buyers are more likely to avoid GoPro in the future, with severe consequences for the company’s future drone and camera sales,” he noted. “There are simply too many very good drone alternatives available on the market for buyers to risk giving GoPro another chance.”

The recall emphasizes the fact that GoPro is a camera company and not a drone company, Frost’s Blades added.

“GoPro should not have been expected to develop a perfect product with its first drone,” he said. “However, the market is innovating so quickly that if your product is not better or more capable than the latest products, you will likely fail.”

Flawed Strategy

Consumer interest in UAVs has been less than anticipated by the industry, and the Karma recall isn’t going to improve that, observed Brad Russell, a research analyst with Parks Associates.

Less than 5 percent of U.S. broadband households own a drone, and less than 4 percent said they were interested in owning one at the beginning of the year, he noted.

“Negative drone stories in the press and mechanical failures, such as GoPro’s recent troubles, are likely stifling consumer interest outside of film and video professionals and enthusiasts,” he told TechNewsWorld.

Even without the recall of Karma, GoPro’s prosumer drone strategy may be flawed, suggested Philip Solis, a research director at ABI Research.

Although revenues from prosumer drones amount to about half of the $1 billion consumer drone market, those drones represent only 6 percent of drones shipped in the space.

“GoPro’s strategy should be to use drones to expand the sales of their cameras, but they’re pricing themselves into the prosumer space, which is low volume, which means a very tiny amount of additional cameras sold,” Solis told TechNewsWorld.

Debacle for GoPro

What’s more, by selling Karma at $799, GoPro is going head-to-head with the established leaders in the market, DJI and 3DR. “If you’re not DJI or 3DR, it’s awfully hard to compete in the market,” Solis said.

“If they had a product at $400 to $600, they could compete better in the market and sell a lot more cameras,” he maintained.

“The Karma drone has been a debacle for GoPro, and it will be extremely challenging for them to bounce back in the drone market after such an awful start,” said Strategy Analytics’ Hyers. “Going forward, GoPro should partner with another drone maker and outsource drone development. It’s clearly not ready to do it on its own.

Friend Finder Data Breach Exposes 400M Swingers

hackers-data-breach-friend-finderHackers have stolen information of more than 400 million users of Friend Finder Networks, which runs several adult dating and pornography websites, LeakedSource reported earlier this week.

This is Friend Finders’ second breach in two years. Last year, hackers accessed 4 million accounts, exposing information on users’ sexual preferences and extramarital affairs.

Data of more than 412 million users was compromised in the latest breach, LeakedSource reported. Passwords taken in the breach were either in plain text or SHA1 hashed, and neither method could be considered secure.

The hashed passwords appeared changed to all lowercase before storage, making them easier to attack, the LeakedSource team noted. However, it also makes them less easy to use in the real world.

Whatever Hackers Want, Hackers Get

Friend Finder reportedly has been aware of potential security vulnerabilities for several weeks and has been taking steps to investigate them. Several reports of flaws apparently were extortion attempts, but one was an injection vulnerability that the company fixed.

Friend Finder did not respond to our request to comment for this story.

Friend Finder maintains that it takes the security of its customers seriously, as is typical of companies that suddenly find millions of their users’ accounts hacked.

“It is hard to tell if a company that has been breached is lax in their security,” said Jon Clay, director of global threat communications at Trend Micro.

“History has proven that hackers are able to penetrate many organizations regardless of their security controls,” he told TechNewsWorld.

However, this case doesn’t merit the benefit of the doubt, according to Stu Sjouwerman, CEO of KnowBe4.

“This is criminal negligence, as it’s not the first time,” he told TechNewsWorld.

“This hack is very similar to the data breach they had last year,” Sjouwerman said. “Their procedures and policies are severely lacking. Even users who believed they deleted their accounts have had them stolen again. ”

There were nearly 16 million accounts with appended to them, LeakedSource said, which could mean Friend Finder decided to store information on accounts that users wanted deleted.

Friend Finder wouldn’t be alone in such treatment of customers who asked to have their accounts deleted, noted Tony Anscombe, the security evangelist atAvast.

“It’s very difficult to have a company delete your account data. Typically, the settings to do it are hidden. They don’t want to delete you because they want to market to you going forward,” he told TechNewsWorld.

“There has to be a better method across the whole industry of allowing somebody to remove their data from a database,” he added.

Get Ready for Extortion

The consequences for users from the breach at Friend Finder likely will be similar to those suffered by users of the infidelity site Ashley Madison after its data was breached.

“Identity theft and extortion are two of the main consequences for the victims whose information was stolen,” said Trend Micro’s Clay.

Anyone with an email address in the stolen data can expect to receive harassing or threatening emails, as well as click bait offers to “see if your name and password are on the list,” KnowBe4’s Sjouwerman added.

“Do not go looking for your data,” warned Avast’s Anscombe.

“Lots of scammers will say they’ve got it. There will be sites popping up saying ‘check to see if you were part of this breach.’ Those sites are gathering data,” he explained.

“When you type in your email address to see if you were part of the breach — guess what? — you just gave a cybercriminal somewhere your email address,” he said.

Short Attention Span

Consumers aren’t the only ones who suffer from gigantic breaches.

“Data sets of credentials that contain user names, emails, passwords, and answers to secret questions are sold to attackers targeting enterprises,” noted Israel Barak, CISO of Cybereason.

“They’re looking to take advantage of users that re-use their passwords,” he told TechNewsWorld.

“Those users use the same password for the dating site, as well as for their corporate email, corporate VPN, personal email, personal bank account and so forth,” Barak said.

“This scenario has been shown to be extremely effective after the LinkedIn breach that led to numerous secondary breaches based on reused passwords,” he added. “This will be a very likely outcome of the Adult Finder breach as well.”

And what about the damage to Friend Finder? The breach likely will be no more than a near-term setback for Friend Finder, if Ashley Madison is any indicator. Traffic bounced back in a short period of time following its massive hack attack.

However, the impact is “broader than these sites,” said Rami Essaid, CEO ofDistil Networks.

It affects “how we are as a society in general,” he said.

“Target rebounded; Home Depot rebounded,” Essaid told TechNewsWorld. “The repercussions of being a victim of a breach are short-lived. We have a very short memory as a society and are not holding people accountable long-term.”

One of the Best New VR Things: Buying a Car

jaguar-i-pace-virtual-reality-presentationI had a fascinating experience last week. I got to see and experience the new Jaguar I-Pace, the company’s electric answer to the as-yet-unannounced Tesla Y SUV, long before I’ll actually get to see the prototype. I didn’t just get to see the car — I got to understand intimately why the car was created and what went into its design. I got to experience aspects of the vehicle viscerally, without actually getting into it.

My experience was possible due to an alliance between Dell, HTC and Jaguar. It dovetails with a project that Nvidia and Audi have undertaken to showcase cars in dealerships without the dealerships actually having to floor the car. It opens the door, ironically, to an even more localized experience than Tesla has with its store front dealerships.

I think VR eventually will change how we buy most physical things, and I find it amazing that it is starting with cars first. I’ll focus on that this week and close with my product of the week, which has to be this amazing new car from Jaguar. I loved it so much I got on a list to order it.

Virtual Reality

There are three visual technologies in the process of coming to market right now. There’s augmented reality, which Google Glass showcased and nearly killed. AR overlays information over the real world — usually through some kind of small head-mounted projector muck like a heads-up display. Like heads-up displays, AR doesn’t really change what you see — it enhances or augments it.

The newest of the new visual technologies is mixed-reality, which uses massive computing power to render and blend the real world with what is rendered. In its final form, you can’t tell the difference. It is pretty rough and more proof-of-concept now, with Microsoft’s Hololens the closest to production. That’s largely because it cheats, though — it is more an augmented reality device.

Virtual Reality is a fully rendered technology that places you in an environment. There are low-end offerings that use smartphones, which actually are surprisingly good. High-end versions use high-end PCs, as well as workstations and headsets from firms like HTC and Facebook subsidiary Oculus Rift. They now can create experiences that are ever harder to distinguish from reality. This is the technology that Jaguar, Dell and HTC demonstrated.

Car Showcase

Firms like Audi and Jaguar are working to figure out how to get people more excited about new cars, how to find new ways to engage and drive purchases, and how to assist in the car ordering process. This last is where Audi and Nvidia focused their effort.

Their project enables a space in dealerships where a prospective buyer can put on a VR headset and then see the full range of options. It’s as if the customer’s perfect car were right there. Options include not only interior and exterior finishes and colors, but also features. Customers then can experience each feature or package as they would if they actually were driving the car. They can figure out, before paying for it, whether the car is worth their money.

This is particularly important for newly launched cars. Mistakes often are made in ordering, because people either don’t realize they want a feature or it accidentally gets left out. That happened to me last month, when I got the Mercedes I’d ordered. A feature I’d asked for was left off the final order sheet due to changes made to the ordering system.

Had I been able to see the rendering of the car I’d ordered, I would have caught the omission and not have missed this important feature (built in garage door opener and self-dimming mirrors).

This is just the start, though, and Jaguar, Dell and HTC took it further. (I should point out that the Dell workstations used to create and show this technology used Nvidia graphics solutions, so Nvidia is in both systems.)

VR on Steroids

What Jaguar did was add significantly to this experience by changing the presentation from just a showcase for the car to a showcase for the whole story that surrounds the car. Manufacturers can hope we fall in love with a car at first sight, and some of us certainly do, but a far more powerful way to sell us on a car is to build a compelling story around it. It’s like the difference between seeing actors’ head shots vs. getting to know them and experiencing their art.

They started our tour by taking us up above Earth to about where the Space Station orbits. That gave us an amazing, almost god-like view as they walked us through the birth of the car and built the car out with each storied major component, while both showcasing and telling us the back story.

We then plunged to Earth were we could see the rendered car perform on roads. We got to sit in the car and have each major feature showcased, with Jaguar’s top designer explaining why each feature existed and, in some cases, why particular decisions were made.

As a result, the car wasn’t two dimensional for us. We left understanding deeply why the car was the way it was, and that helped drive a higher level of lust in us.

The Future

I think this is only the tip of the iceberg, because VR will allow you to do this wherever VR capability exists, potentially turning your future living room into a dealership. In addition, you could build driving experiences into presentations and embed cars into other content — like VR games.

The next time you play a driving game, might actually play it with the car you own or the car the advertiser wants to sell you. Finally, they could actually give cars virtual personalities, much like in the movie Cars. Your car, or the car the firm wants to sell you, could be the hero of a coming virtual movie. That would get your kids wedded to the cars you drive and go well beyond what many of us did when young and named them (yes, I did that).

Wrapping Up: Massive Change

This is only one of the massive changes we will see — not only in the automotive market, but also in the appliance market, the home market, and anyplace where seeing something rendered could assist in the offering’s sale or use.

These experiences won’t be limited to VR. As we move to mixed reality, we’ll be able to see products as they would exist in our homes and cities long before they are actually built.

As we move to self-driving cars, this may be how we gain back the fun of driving — by virtually driving in game-like settings while the real-world car we’re riding in safely transports us to where we want to go. I’ve seen the future of cars — and most of everything else — and that future is virtual!!

Gadget Ogling: Big Bendy Screens, Chatterbox Robots, and TV in the Cloud

aoc-monitorWelcome, dear friends, to Gadget Dreams and Nightmares, the column that’s distracted itself from the shellshock of the election just long enough to cast a beady eye over the latest gadget announcements.

Spied from inside the comfort of a warm blanket this time around are a curved monitor, a robot with Alexa integration, and a cloud-based DVR from TiVo.

As always, we are sworn to inform you that these are not reviews, and the ratings reflect only how much I’d actually like to try each, assuming my nerves hold up long enough to handle any gizmos.

Around the Bend

A little more than four months after moving to a new apartment, I’m at long last about to start setting up my office. Goodbye, Ikea dining table. Hello, fancy new desk. When I actually have my new setup, I’d like to have a monitor at long last to complement my laptop. AOC’s latest is under serious consideration.

The AG352QCX, pictured above, is a 35-inch, curved behemoth with two USB 3.0 ports, one HDMI 2.0 input, VGA, DVI, audio in and out ports, and DisplayPort 1.2. That’s plenty enough for most people’s purposes, though a second HDMI port would have been welcome.

Do note that when I say I’ll have an “office” for “work,” I fully intend to spend plenty of time in that little nook playing games as well, so a monitor designed for interactive action is high on the priority list. The 200-Hz refresh rate and 4ms response time, along with FreeSync (which smooths gameplay and reduces screen tearing), should help make sure I get the bad guys before they get me.

The 1080p resolution is not fantastic for the price — Pounds 699, approximately US$866 — when we’re edging toward 4K and Retina displays becoming commonplace. That’s more a concern for desktop usage, though. The lower resolution will be less noticeable for high-refresh rate gaming taking up the entire screen.

It fits my needs, giving me extra screen real estate while working, and a monitor on which to play games in the off hours. It’s probably a little too large for me, though, even if the curved screen does look great.


Rolling Robot

Regular readers may note that there is virtually zero chance of me giving a low rating to a cute robots with giant eyes, even if those peepers are on a screen and not physical eyes.

Omate’s Yumi has a 5-inch display for a face and can show different expressions, while it has a light ring to alert you to notifications. More practically, it has Alexa integration: A microphone and speakers let you issue commands and receive feedback from Amazon’s personal assistant.

It has wheels, so it is somewhat mobile. Unfortunately, it can’t rotate its head, and while there’s a camera for video calls, Yumi needs to stay in place for that, so you can’t chat to a relative through the robot while walking around your home.

The little cherub is winsome and with the helpful Alexa integration, I would not hesitate to bring one home. Still, there are better-looking alternatives already on the market, and I suspect plenty more are on the way.

Less of a product announcement than a leak, the first few details of TiVo’s cloud-based DVR have seeped into the world. It seems the Mavrik saves all the shows you want to watch later in the cloud, and you’ll be able to stream them whenever you want.

Certainly, there are streaming services around, like Hulu and HBO Go, which provide consumers a way to watch shows soon after they air. These services are decentralized, though, and without paying for a whole bundle of them, it’s unlikely you’ll find it easy to watch all of your favorite shows.

A system like Mavrik should cut out the wait time, and save the shows you want instead of relying on each service’s cherry-picked portfolio — as long as you have the cable package to match, that is.

Tivo Mavrik

The box connects directly to a TV antenna, according to the leak, though it appears you can stream both live and recorded shows and movies using an app. Mavrik would have been dead on arrival if TiVo didn’t allow users to stream content to whichever device they prefer to watch on, so in-app streaming is heartening.

There are other cloud-based DVR systems around, though none really have the brand value of TiVo, meaning this could become a commonplace setup in relatively short order. It will require a subscription, of course, but the likely utility of Mavrik just might make it worthwhile. The cost of the subscription plus a cable package nullifies the convenience for me, but it just might stick for others.

Google’s DeepMind AI Said to Outperform Professional Lip-Readers

Google's DeepMind AI Said to Outperform Professional Lip-ReadersArtificial technology has taken significant leaps in recent times with companies such as Microsoft even making bold claims that its speech recognition system is as good as humans. Now, the latest achievements of Google’s AI technology might help in significantly improving the lives of hearing-impaired people with a better lip-reading system, as well as improving the quality of translations using Multilingual Neural Machine Translation.

An AI system developed in collaboration with DeepMind, owned by Google’s parent company Alphabet, and University of Oxford was trained by using news videos with runtime of over 5,000 hours, and over 118,000 sentences, according to a report by New Scientist.

The videos were taken from BBC shows that aired between 2010 and 2015. After training, the system was set to lip read programmes broadcast between March and September of this year. According to the report, the system can decipher entire phrases like “We know there will be hundreds of journalists here as well,” by just looking at the speaker’s lips.

While a professional lip-reader was able to register a success rate of just 12.4 percent in trying to decipher 200 randomly selected clips from the above data set, the AI system successfully recognised 46.8 percent of all words from the data set.

Google further announced that the company’s translation tool – Google Translate – which recently received the support of Neural Machine Translation to recognise entire phrases instead of single words, will now make use of Multilingual Neural Machine Translation. The company says that Multilingual Neural Machine Translation improves upon the previous system and uses it as a base.

“Our proposed architecture requires no change in the base GNMT system, but instead uses an additional “token” at the beginning of the input sentence to specify the required target language to translate to. In addition to improving translation quality, our method also enables “Zero-Shot Translation” – translation between language pairs never seen explicitly by the system,” the search giant said in a blog post.

This effectively means that Google Translate will now use one system for all translations instead of using individual systems for each language pair translation. It further allows the system to do translation between language pairs that it has never seen before.

Even though we will have to wait for the actual impact of these achievements by Google’s AI technology, it has to be said that the technology’s feat is impressive at the very least.

Vodafone M-Pesa Customers Can Now Withdraw Cash From Company Outlets

Vodafone M-Pesa Customers Can Now Withdraw Cash From Company OutletsVodafone India will allow its 8.4 million-plus Vodafone M-Pesa customers to withdraw cash through their digital wallets from any of its over 120,000 outlets across the country, the company said on Wednesday.

“Vodafone M-Pesa customers do not need to stand in long queues outside ATMs and bank branches for cash. We have invested in building a nationwide network of over 120,000 M-Pesa outlets, equivalent to the numbers of bank branches in the country,” said Suresh Sethi, Business Head, Vodafone M-Pesa, in a statement.

Over 56 percent of these outlets are located in rural India.


“Our customers can visit any of these outlets and use the unique cash-out feature of Vodafone M-Pesa to withdraw cash from their digital wallets at their own convenience. Further, our digital wallet too can be easily digitally loaded via credit/debit cards or net banking,” he added.

Customers need to carry an identity proof to their nearest M-Pesa outlet from where they can withdraw money, subject to availability, in line with the Reserve Bank of India guidelines, the statement added.

Smartphone Shipments in India Cross 30 Million Units in Q3 2016: IDC

Smartphone Shipments in India Cross 30 Million Units in Q3 2016: IDCFor the first time, the smartphone market in India crossed the 30 million unit shipments milestone in the third quarter of this year, the International Data Corp (IDC) reported on Tuesday.

According to IDC’s Quarterly Mobile Phone Tracker, smartphone shipments clocked 32.3 million units in Q3 2016 with 17.5 percentage growth over the previous quarter, maintaining its traction with 11 percent Year-on-Year growth.

“This seasonal spike in third quarter can be attributed to the channel preparation for the festive season, mega online sales and early import of smartphones owing to Chinese holidays in October,” said Karthik J, Senior Market Analyst (Client Devices) IDC India.

Lenovo Group, which constitutes almost a fourth of total online smartphone shipments, continues to lead online channel followed by Xiaomi.

“Online share of smartphone increased to 31.6 percent with impressive 35 percent Quarter-on-Quarter (QoQ) growth due to strong performance by key online players primarily from China-based vendors,” Karthik added.

Samsung led the Indian smartphone market with 23 percentage share with 8 percent sequential growth followed by Lenovo Group (including Motorola) with 9.6 percent share of smartphones.
Reliance Jio sustained its fifth position in the period despite a healthy 20.9 percent growth over previous quarter while Xiaomi made its debut in top 5 as its shipments doubled over previous quarter.

“Mobile vendor ecosystem is going through a multi-dimensional transition. Continuous investment from China based vendors on retail expansion and high decibel marketing has led to disruption in the plans of home-grown vendors to some extent,” added Jaipal Singh, Market Analyst (Client Devices), IDC India.

Analysts said migration from feature phone to smartphone had slowed down, helping India-based vendors to maintain their dominance in overall mobile market.

4G smartphone shipments grew 24.8 percent over the previous quarter in Q3 2016.

“The rollout of Reliance Jio network has further increased the share of 4G-enabled smartphones in India. Seven out of 10 smartphone shipped in Q3 2016 were 4G-enabled and 9 out of 10 smartphone sold by eTailers were 4G,” Singh added.

Vodafone Says First Half Loss Doubled on India Woes

Vodafone Says First Half Loss Doubled on India WoesBritish mobile phone giant Vodafone on Tuesday said its first-half net loss doubled to more than EUR 5 billion owing to a huge writedown for its Indian unit.

Vodafone said its loss after tax soared to EUR 5.1 billion ($5.5 billion or roughly Rs. 37,229 crores) in the six months to September 30 compared with a net loss of EUR 2.5 billion one year earlier.

Vodafone said it was hit by an impairment charge of EUR 6.4 billion (roughly Rs. 46,716 crores) “in respect of the group’s investment in India”.

“Competition in India has increased in the year, reducing revenue growth and profitability,” Vodafone chief executive Vittorio Colao said in the results statement.
“We have responded to this changing competitive environment by strengthening our data and voice commercial offers and by focusing our participation in the recent spectrum auction on acquiring frequencies in the more successful and profitable areas of the country,” he added.

Stripping out the exceptional hit from India as well as interest payments, Vodafone posted pre-tax profit of EUR 7.9 billion for the first half, a drop of 1.7 percent compared with one year earlier.
Vodafone’s share price was up 1.6 percent at 207.9 pence in early deals on London’s rising FTSE 100 index.
