EE's Su­per-Quick Speeds

EE engi­neers have boasted, quite rightly, of achiev­ing speeds of 2.1Gb/s from a trial LTE demon­stra­tion, achieved along­side its part­ner­ship with Huawei. It’s worth bear­ing in mind that this was an en­gi­neer­ing test, so it’s not a true-to-life demo of what can be achieved by con­sumers in the field – but 2.1Gb/s, wow.

Dude, Where's My Car?

It's a com­mon ques­tion... Maybe not in that ex­act phras­ing, granted, but one that can now be an­swered by and iOS app called Tu­ture. It doesn’t need any ac­ces­sories to work, as the app au­to­mat­i­cally records the lo­ca­tion of your car at the time you left it, with a park­ing en­trance in­di­cated on your mo­bile de­vice if you left it in an un­der­ground car park.

You can man­u­ally in­put a lo­ca­tion if you’d pre­fer and, as well as let­ting you know where you left your ve­hi­cle, plans are a foot for the app to in­form users in real time when a park­ing space be­comes avail­able close to your car.

Ger­man Users Cut Off

Up to 900,000 cus­tomers of Ger­many’s Deutsche Telekom were cut off from their broad­band af­ter – yes, you’ve guessed it – some­one was sus­pected of hack­ing into the com­pany’s hard­ware. The prob­lem seems to have af­fected own­ers of cer­tain routers, lead­ing the com­pany to make the fol­low­ing state­ment: “Based on the er­ror pat­tern, we can­not ex­clude the pos­si­bil­ity that the routers have been tar­geted by ex­ter­nal par­ties with the re­sult that they can no longer regis­ter on the net­work.”

There have been a few too many hack­ing sto­ries to re­port in this week’s news, we’re afraid. Nasty busi­ness.
