Intel’s Java on iOS native cross-platform framework repurposes code and skills 

Intel lets developers reuse Android Java code on iOS — Yes, you read that right the first time. And the iOS Java apps running on iPhones have native Xcode UIs.

To the astonishment of everyone seeing Multi-OS Engine for the first time, iOS apps can be developed on Windows using Android Studio and debugged on Windows using a USB tethered iPhone or the iOS emulator Intel built for Android Studio.
Developing mobile apps that work on both iPhones and Androids isn’t easy – or cheap. And given the shortage of developers that continues to plague IT, a framework that allows app shops to repurpose code from one platform to the next promises to save both time and money. That’s what Intel is promising.

My Nexus 6 never needs a midday charging. Never means…well, never. It only sees its charger next to my bedside after I've run out of energy. With subscriptions to seven news apps, my Nexus's huge six-inch screen is often lit for long periods of reading time whenever I have down time. Its 5.96-inch, 1440x2560 pixel/493 ppi screen delivers clear detail and an unstrained reading. http://
Recent reports about battery issues with Samsung's new Galaxy S6 Edge and S6 Edge+ smartphones are a reminder of the benefits of the Nexus 6.

Now with regular updates, Android’s security model is much better than iOS and Windows 10. Android source code is available for the security community to examine. Open source makes Android a good subject for commercial and academic researchers to test theories and postulate vulnerabilities. Google will pay a bounty for verified vulnerabilities. 
The extremely exaggerated risk of the Stagefright vulnerability may have precipitated an improvement in the Android security model.

After reading the description of how things go from Java source to running on the VM, I'm not convinced the author knew how Java > Java bytecode > Dalvik bytecode > native machine code worked. Sheesh.

3 years ago we embarked on a project to put computing inside a contact lens -- an immensely challenging technical problem with an important application to health.  While I am delighted at the progress that project has made, I could not have imagined the potential of the initiative it has grown into -- a life sciences team with the mission to develop new technologies to make healthcare more proactive.  The efforts it has spawned include  a nanodiagnostics platform, a cardiac and activity monitor, and the Baseline Study.

It’s a huge undertaking, and I am delighted to announce that the life sciences team is now ready to graduate from our X lab and become a standalone Alphabet company, with Andy Conrad as CEO.  While the reporting structure will be different, their goal remains the same. They’ll continue to work with other life sciences companies to move new technologies from early stage R&D to clinical testing—and, hopefully—transform the way we detect, prevent, and manage disease.  
   
The team is relatively new but very diverse including software engineers, oncologists, and optics experts.  This is the type of company we hope will thrive as part of Alphabet and I can’t wait to see what they do next.

Splitting the name of Google’s new holding company Alphabet into two – “alpha” and “bet” – may help explain the new business structure that JP Morgan analyst Doug Anmuth called “an elegant way for Google to continue to pursue long-term, life-changing initiatives while simultaneously increasing transparency and management focus in the core business” in a recent report. 
The search giant’s new Alphabet corporate structure may appeal to many more types of investors. And the overhaul may be a natural way to sort financial backers based on risk versus reward.
