Twitter wants to buy Flipboard

What many don't realize is that Flipboard is so much more than just a news reader. It's in fact a complete social network. I use it a lot and have great discussions everyday on posts there. So if Twitter wants to acquire Flipboard, I totally understand them. To me Flipboard is more social network than Twitter is at the moment. I think it would be a perfect match.

Twitter has been engaged in an ongoing series of talks to acquire Flipboard, according to multiple sources with knowledge of the situation, in an all-stock deal that would value the company at over $1 billion.

But despite a flurry of activity more recently, sources said these talks between Twitter and Flipboard — who are partners on a number of different fronts — seem to be currently stalled.

The 5 minute podcast: #13 - iPhone 6s 12 megapixel Sony camera will use RGBW technology

In this episode of my English short-form podcast called The 5 minute podcast, I talk about a new rumor about the 12 megapixel camera on the coming iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s plus. It will use the RGBW technology for better photos in low light conditions. And the sensor will be made by Sony. Download and listen to this episode via iTunes or manually from this RSS Feed.

See more what this episode is all about in the show notes below.

Show Notes:

  • The iPhone 6s will have a 12MP camera from Sony with RGBW technology
    • 12 Megapixel Sony sensor
    • with Sony’s RGBW technology for improved performance in low-light conditions.
    • it adds a “W” (white) sub-pixel together with the conventional RGB sub-pixels.
    • for higher quality images with less noise in poorly lit environments.
    • the report comes from Japan and now circulates in China as a rumor
    • it means that a 12MP camera with smaller pixels will still be excellent in low light environments
    • no mention of dual cameras
    • could mean that we still will have a protruding camera this year
    • so Apple's new dual lens technology that they bought from the company LinX could maybe be first used next year for the iPhone 7.
