    Tech firm LeTV riles Qihoo with Coolpad investment

    Portfolio Manager / Alcuin Asset Management
    China
    Online video firm LeTV has announced that it has acquired an 18% stake in smartphone manufacturer Coolpad, which is an unusual move given that Coolpad formed a joint venture with Qihoo in December. The move is part of LeTV’s diversification plan, but it is very difficult to see how Coolpad can work with both LeTV and Qihoo.

    Nanotech revolution puts high-end gadgets in your pocket

    Business Spectator
    We’ve seen a mountain of gadgets released this year. Apple Watch and wearables, virtual reality viewers, 3D printers that can scan, drones, ultra-high-definition TV, incredible high-resolution screens on phones and more. Elon Musk’s Powerwall lithium-ion battery unit takes the cake. It stores renewable energy locally. Computer components are even tinier. For example, a computer graphics card just released by chipmaker AMD has 8.5 billion transistors. So now a fast, high-end computer fits in your pocket, complete with one terabyte of storage, and a low-power central processing unit featuring large yet cheap solid state drives. Lower power means less heat generated, less ventilation needed and less space.

    Japanese chat app hits right note with music streaming service

    CNBC
    In Japan, a homegrown music streaming service is set to outdo international rivals and breathe new life into an industry still dominated by CDs and vinyl records. Nyshka Chandran reports that LINE Music, the streaming arm of popular messaging app LINE, launched in Japan last week, ahead of industry giants Apple Music and Spotify. Spotify isn't yet available in the country and it's unconfirmed whether Japan will be included in Apple Music's global release at the end of June. Japan is the world's second-largest music market after the US but streaming still remains a novelty as fans opt to purchase physical formats like CDs instead.
