Digital technology is now at the centre of many important world events, impacting everything from politics to economics to culture. TECH 24 hosts Anelise Borges and Marc Edwards break it all down and explore the week’s key trends and technology news. Mondays at 4.45 pm.
This week's show looks at initiatives that are transforming the places we live into cities of the future. Among the bright ideas: a road that glows in the dark - a project signed "Daan Roosegaarde" design. And in Test 24, we introduce you to ELIKIA: the first smartphone made in the Republic of Congo. We compare it to some of the market heavyweights.
On this week's show we focus on two giants: Chinese search engine Baidu and American multinational corporation Google. Baidu is investing 1.2 billion euros in "cloud computing" and has already begun to eye international markets such as Japan, Southeast Asia and Brazil. Meanwhile, Google launches its newest tablet: the Nexus 10 promises "immersive HD content and the best Google apps" on the world's highest resolution display.
Barack Obama is back in the White House and faces real challenges in the digital world: like re-thinking the Smart Grid, beefing up Cyber Defense, and scrapping (or bringing back) Sopa and Pipa… Is Obama up for the 2.0 task?
And in Test 24, we check out the new iPad mini: everything you love about the iPad… You can now hold in one-hand.
It's 'election time' in the US and we devote this week's show to to discover if the future of democracy is digital.
And in Test 24 we check out the new console that promises to "change the way you play". The Wii U hits the shelves in the US and Europe in the coming weeks.
Microsoft bets on a radical redesign of its operating system and launches Windows 8. Jean Philippe Courtois, President of Microsoft International, speaks to Tech 24 about the new project. And on Test 24, we check out the new Surface, a tablet whose creators believe can replace the computer.
