$999 Best Buy Boost Mobile Aug 31 • Your phone screen is gross. Here’s how to clean it Aug 31 • iPhone XR vs. iPhone 8 Plus: Which iPhone should you buy? Huawei’s foldable Mate X phone uses the company’s in-house Balong 5000 5G modem chip. Andrew Hoyle/CNET The future of 5G on the iPhone is getting messy.Starting in 2016, Apple used chips from both Intel and Qualcomm to power its iPhone’s modem, connecting it to 4G cellular networks. But in 2018, the company switched entirely to Intel’s wireless chips for its $999 iPhone XS, $1,099 iPhone XS Max and $749 iPhone XR. And it’s believed the next iPhone will also use only Intel chips as well.That’s led to speculation the iPhone won’t be able to offer new 5G wireless technology until at least 2020. In the meantime, Apple and Qualcomm are battling in court over patent licensing, with the latest trial scheduled for next week in San Diego. While that court battle continues, it’s unlikely Qualcomm will supply 5G chips for iPhones anytime soon.While that drama plays out, the Chinese tech giant Huawei says it has a solution for Apple. The company said it’s “open” to selling its own 5G Balong 5000 chipsets to Apple, Engadget reported on Monday, citing an unnamed “source with knowledge of the situation.” Huawei declined to comment. Apple didn’t immediately respond to requests for comment. While Huawei may offer an alternative with its 5G modem, which is used in the Mate X phone, the company reportedly sells almost none of its wireless chips to other device makers because of national security concerns.Lawmakers in Washington consider Huawei a security threat, in part because of its close link with the Chinese government. As a result, federal agencies are banned from using the company’s products. The US has also encouraged other countries not to use Huawei tech with their 5G networks. As a result, Huawei devices are hard to come by in the US, despite it being one of the top phone makers in the world. For Apple, though, the lack of 5G wireless technology could be a liability. Every other major phone maker will have a 5G phone available by 2019.First published April 8, 1:13 p.m. PT.Update 2:30 p.m. PT: Adds details about Apple’s legal problems with Qualcomm, and Huawei national security concerns.

Axis Bank chief executive officer (CEO) and managing director (MD) Shikha Sharma.TwitterAxis Bank released a statement that rubbishes the claim of the news report, which said chief executive officer (CEO) and managing director (MD) Shikha Sharma is likely to join the Tata Group, The Economic Times (ET) reported. “Your assertions are untrue and unfounded. There is a laid down process that the board undertakes at regular intervals, but to conclude that there is going to be a change of leadership is entirely premature and speculative,” the bank said in a statement.Shikha Sharma is likely to join the Tata Group to lead its financial services vertical, BloombergQuint reported earlier on Tuesday.The report further said that Tata Sons Chairman N Chandrasekaran has selected the managing director and chief executive officer of India’s third largest private lender to head the vertical that will include companies like Tata-AIA Life Insurance and Tata Capital.India’s third largest private sector bank, Axis Bank, has appointed executive search firm Egon Zehnder to identify a new CEO as Sharma’s term ends next year, Bloomberg reported earlier this month.Sharma took over as the MD & CEO of Axis Bank in 2009, after a long stint of 29 years with ICICI Bank. She expanded Axis Bank’s operations in corporate and retail lending, besides venturing into investment banking. The bank’s loan book grew more than four-fold to Rs 3.73 lakh crore during her term, the report claimed.”We request you to exercise utmost caution in airing your speculative assertions because such malicious reports may only cause spread of unnecessary apprehensions and concerns that neither is at the best interest of the bank nor its stakeholders,” the Axis Bank statement further said.Sharma and Tata Sons haven’t confirmed anything to media.
A woman walks past a signboard of Dewan Housing Finance Corporation Ltd. (DHFL) outside its office on the outskirts of Mumbai, January 31, 2019.ReutersShares in one of India’s biggest home loan and property finance companies, Dewan Housing Finance Ltd (DHFL), are expected to fall sharply on Monday after the lender reported dismal results and warned about its grim financial situation.DHFL reported a net loss of 22.23 billion rupees ($324.3 million) for the quarter ended March 31, in a regulatory filing late on Saturday. It also said it had defaulted on the interest payments due on two non-convertible debentures.”The share price would be impacted significantly. I expect it to be down around 10-15% when markets open as their business has been significantly affected,” said Arun Kejriwal, founder of independent advisory firm Kejriwal Research.The company’s ability to raise funds has been substantially impaired and the business has been brought to a standstill with there being minimal/virtually no disbursements, DHFL said in the note accompanying the results.”The most concerning thing in the result is that increased provisioning amount of 32.8 billion rupees ($478.5 million), which has suddenly come up in Q4FY19,” said Hemindra Hazari, an independent banking analyst, adding this implies either a sudden asset deterioration or that stressed assets are finally getting recognised.”This is not a great sign,” said Hazari.DHFL’s results are the latest sign of growing stress in India’s finance sectors as state-owned banks grapple with bad debts and a recent liquidity crunch in the shadow banking industry.This, in turn, has hurt economic growth, which in the March quarter fell to its lowest level in more than four years, presenting a challenge to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who recently won a second term in office.RESTRUCTURING PLAN DHFL has said it is talking to bankers and other lenders on restructuring its borrowings and is in discussions to sell its retail and wholesale portfolio.The company will submit a resolution plan shortly, which may include extending the tenure of loans, converting debt into equity, seeking additional working capital and inducting a new management team and financial investors, sources who attended a meeting with its lenders on Thursday told Reuters.”We are in constant touch with the DHFL management and we’re confident that a resolution plan can be worked out in the coming days,” said one of the bankers involved in the recovery process, requesting anonymity.Still, investors say the company’s dire warnings about its financial situation raising doubts around the “ability of the company to continue as a going concern,” will remain in focus when markets open on Monday.”The losses are not surprising but the quantum is definitely surprising,” SP Tulsian, an independent investment adviser told television channel CNBC TV18.”I don’t accept these arguments about the company finding a solution in the next couple of months as that seems unlikely,” he said, noting that DHFL’s management has been trying to sell assets for the last four to six months.
.Road accidents claim nine to 20 lives every day in the country but the government has no updated figures to address the situation.A total of 3,079 people were killed in road crashes in the past one year, says a report compiled by Prothom Alo.Statistics produced by several private organisations show the number of the victims of road accidents increased recently, compared to the figures shown in official reports.The government has fixed a target of reducing deaths in road accidents to half from the current level in line with the UN objectives, said Moazzem Hossain, director of road accident research institute at Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology.It’s not clear how such goal will be attained when there is no accurate figure of deaths from road accidents, he pointed out.A total of 7,397 people lost lives in road accidents, meaning 20 such death per day, in 2017, according to Bangladesh Passengers’ Welfare Association. Nirapad Sarak Chai (We Demand Safe Road) put the figure at 5,645 or 15 deaths per day.The Bangladesh Police is yet to publish the report on the number of victims of road accidents in the past year.However, the police reports on the road crashes in the previous years show the average number of deaths in a range between 2,000 and 2,500.Moazzem Hossain regretted that most of the persons who died of road accidents were younger ones and earning members of the families.Unfortunately, such losses would be equal to 2 per cent of gross domestic product (GDP) of the country. There is no scope to urgently address this as its a national loss in all respect, he added.*This report, originally published in Prothom Alo print edition, has been rewritten in English by Nusrat Nowrin.

Ofaz went into hiding after the verdict. Local people said Ofaz convinced Jahangir to surrender in his stead for Tk 300,000. He also promised Jahagir to arrange bail.Jahangir, 30, was a driver and drug addict. He lived in Kholapara village in Kaliakair upazila. He is now in Kashimpur High Security Prison.

Universal Music Refutes Claims of Last Artist in Lawsuit Over 2008 Fire, Requests Dismissal Tencent is known primarily for its gaming and social network business — it owns China’s powerful WeChat platform, which has 900 million daily users. But the company also has its own music unit, Tencent Music Entertainment Group, which raised more than $1 billion in an IPO late last year that valued the division overall at $21.3 billion. Tencent also holds a 7.5% equity stake in streaming giant Spotify, the result of a share swap in December 2017, making it one of the Swedish company’s biggest shareholders.Vivendi and Tencent are already familiar interlocutors. In 2017, UMG and Tencent Music struck a multi-year agreement making the latter a distributor of UMG music in China on its QQ Music, KuGou and Kuwo streaming platforms. Tencent Music also has exclusive rights to sub-license UMG’s content in the Middle Kingdom.In a letter to staff, Lucian Grainge, the CEO and chairman of UMG, hailed the talks with Tencent.“This is an exciting development for both Vivendi and UMG and affirms once again just how much our strategy and hard work are succeeding,” Grainge wrote. “As Vivendi discussed last week with its investors, we continue to deliver remarkable, record-setting results. Our success is driven by placing our recording artists and songwriters at the center of everything we do and providing them with the industry’s best creative and commercial resources on a global basis.“Obviously, we remain part of the Vivendi family – today’s announcement is about a minority investment by Tencent. I can assure you that Vivendi’s Supervisory and Management Boards as well as the Bolloré family continue to be steadfast supporters of our strategy, our work and our teams. And it goes without saying, that our commitment to recording artists and songwriters will continue unchanged.”Tencent had long been rumored to be one of the suitors for a stake in UMG after Vivendi announced a year ago its intention to sell up to 50% of the company. The French media giant ruled out an IPO as an option. ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.

UMG has also been hit by a controversy over a fire in 2008 that is estimated to have wiped out 500,000 master recordings in the company’s massive archive.An insider with knowledge of the sale process told Variety that a deal with Tencent would be strategic because China is primed to become the world’s biggest music market. At the same time, however, the potential deal is also supposed to encourage other investors to get involved in order to keep a Chinese company from gaining too much control of UMG, he said.In June, Yannick Bollore, chairman of Vivendi’s supervisory board, said that the company was “not in a hurry” and “very confident” it would find the right partner to purchase up to 50% of UMG. He cited the music industry’s “huge growth” as a pace Vivendi wants to maintain in the coming years.In its latest quarterly financial results, Vivendi reported that its revenues were up nearly 20% to $3.7 billion during the first six months of 2019.Shirley Halperin and Elsa Keslassy contributed to this report. Chinese digital giant Tencent has entered negotiations with French media conglomerate Vivendi to buy a 10% stake in Universal Music Group.Vivendi announced the talks Tuesday, saying that the negotiations were based on a valuation of UMG of €30 billion ($33.6 billion). Tencent’s potential 10% stake would therefore cost €3 billion ($3.36 billion). The deal would give Tencent a one-year option to purchase another 10% stake on the same terms.Vivendi said the two companies were also exploring other areas of “strategic commercial cooperation” that would help grow UMG, the world’s biggest music company with market share of more than 30% in 2018, through new digital initiatives and territories. In addition, Vivendi is continuing to seek other buyers interested in a stake in its extremely lucrative music unit, which boasts a glittering roster of superstars such as Katy Perry, Lady Gaga and Billie Eilish, as well as divisions dedicated to publishing, merchandise and other sectors.
