Apple is developing its own power management chips, says analyst

Apple is developing its own power management chips, according to a report from German private bank Bankhaus Lampe. The release of the report Tuesday led to a sharp drop in the shares of Dialog Semiconductor, the current supplier of these chips to the iPhone maker.“The teams of both companies collaborate very closely and thus, Dialog cannot be replaced by a third-party supplier. However, Apple itself could replace Dialog,” wrote analyst Karsten Iltgen.[ iPad Pro vs. Surface Pro vs. Pixel C vs. Galaxy TabPro S: The "tabtop" tablet/laptop hybrids compared. | Get deep into Windows: Subscribe to the InfoWorld Windows Report newsletter. ]As evidence, the report cited 16 different job openings on Apple’s website for analog/power management engineers for the design center in Munich alone.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

Merkel calls for balanced approach to data protection

EU should not be 'too restrictive' with data protection law EU countries must not be too restrictive in how they apply EU data protection laws or risk damaging the development of big data projects, German chancellor Angela Merkel has said. Germany has traditionally been cautious over data collection, but if countries are too restrictive then "big data management will not be possible", Merkel told the 10th IT Summit (link to video in German) in Saarbrücken. Europeans are famous for banning things, Merkel said.

These bans are put in place for good reason, she said, but can be damaging if taken to excess. "In Germany we have the principle of 'data minimisation', but we may have to give a little on that.
Such a principle doesn't seem as appropriate when you are looking at big data," she said. While it is important to protect personal data, it is also important to enable new developments, she said. "Courts will have to be careful not to be too strict if that means limiting opportunities", Merkel said. Munich-based data protection expert Kirsten Wolgast of Pinsent Masons, the law firm behind Out-Law.com said Merkel's comments suggest a change of direction. "Merkel obviously wants to create some space for big data business models, and make it a bit easier to establish.

But we'll have to wait and see whether the data protection authorities or courts take her comments into account," Wolgast said. Berlin data protection commissioner Maja Smoltczyk said this month that nine of the country's federal data protection authorities are to conduct a review of 500 businesses' data transfer arrangements. The review will focus on arrangements the businesses have in place for transferring personal data outside of the European Economic Area (EEA).

IBM's IoT blockchain service gets ready to set sail

A massive DDOS attack and weaknesses in critical systems have put security concerns front and center in the internet of things.
IBM thinks a technology best known from the world of bitcoin could lock down at least one use of IoT. The company is using blockchain technology to ensure that everything’s in order with IoT transactions. Just as a public blockchain makes bitcoin transactions traceable and verifiable, the private, cloud-based system that IBM will operate for enterprises will verify non-monetary interactions between some devices. The blockchain offering, part of IBM’s Watson IoT Platform, was announced earlier this year. On Tuesday, the company is announcing general availability of professional services for enterprises to get ready to use the blockchain. The news comes as IBM ratchets up its investment in IoT, spending $200 million on a global Watson IoT headquarters in Munich.

That’s part of its global investment of $3 billion to bring Watson’s cognitive computing capabilities to IoT.

The company said it has 6,000 clients using Watson IoT solutions and services. The main industry IBM is targeting with blockchain is logistics. When something in transit reaches its destination or goes through different facilities along the way, those transactions can automatically be logged in a tamper-proof blockchain ledger, said Bret Greenstein, vice president of IBM Watson IoT.

Also, sensors on a shipped item can detect things like temperature and vibration and record those in the ledger. Blockchains are secure because they’re distributed records of information.

There’s no central repository of data that can be hacked or falsified.

Each block in the record contains a computational "hash" of itself and of the previous block, like links in a chain.

Any change to a block requires changes to all subsequent blocks, which makes it hard to fake data convincingly. In this case, the ledger is private, unlike the one used for bitcoin, so each company has sole possession of the data in its ledger. However, partners can enter data into the ledger, and the company that owns the ledger can selectively share data from it, Greenstein said. For example, a shipping company that’s tasked with delivering ice cream around the world could use sensors to measure the temperature of the product throughout the journey and share that information with the ice cream maker so they know the shipping company is fulfilling its contract.

Because every entry in the ledger is verified, the maker knows that the shipper didn’t tamper with the readings. Likewise, when a container gets handed off from ship to train to truck, IoT devices can automatically record those transactions in the verified ledger. IBM hosts and manages the blockchain as part of its Watson IoT Platform.
In most cases, enterprises will integrate the service with an application, something IBM is happy to help them do as part of its professional services. The blockchain service itself will become generally available at a later date.
Some IBM customers, including electricity providers, oil and gas companies, and cities automating logistics processes, are already using the blockchain service in early engagements, Greenstein said.
