The iPhone 6s may be an old warhorse, but that hasn't stopped the smartphone from becoming consumers' most favored handset. According to a report from the IHS Markit, the Apple smartphone has emerged the best-selling handset for 2016. "In terms of shipments, the iPhone 6s from Apple bested all competitors for sales in 2016, according to new analysis from IHS Markit," noted the report. The report based its findings on the research from the IHS Markit Smartphone Shipment Database. This database keeps track of quarterly shipments for over 350 smartphone models. On the basis of shipments, the iPhone 6s routed even sibling iPhone 7 in sales and took home the top honors. The Q4 2016 figures, however, tell a different story as in this period, the world's iPhone 7 was the best-selling smartphone, followed by the iPhone 7 Plus. IHS Markit did not divulge the shipment estimates for 2016, but the chart reflects that the iPhone 6s accounted for 60 million shipments. According to analysts, the iPhone 6s performed better than its contemporaries largely due its top-end features and specs. "The iPhone 6s is wildly popular in dozens of countries globally, due to its attractive hardware design blended with rich features such as 4K video, large multi-touch display, and fingerprint security," said Neil Mawston Executive Director at the Strategy Analytics. The top four spots in the list of the most sold smartphones in 2016 went to Apple courtesy its iPhone 6s, iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, and iPhone 6s Plus. This means that Apple easily managed to rout rival Samsung, which made it to the top five thanks to its Galaxy S7 edge. Samsung's Galaxy S7 edge was not the only handset from the company to make it to the list. The company's Galaxy S7 was the ninth-best in the rankings. While Samsung may have been outpaced by Apple, a silver lining for the company is that the two smartphones performed better than their predecessors Galaxy S6 edge and Galaxy S6. The gross and combined shipment of the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge was 10 million higher than that of its predecessors in the same period. Samsung shipped roughly 25 million units each of the 2016 models of the Galaxy J3, Galaxy J5, Galaxy J7, and Galaxy S7. The Oppo A53 also made it to the list of the best-selling smartphones for 2016. It was ranked seventh and was the only non-Samsung or non-Apple device in the list. However, Huawei, which is the third biggest smartphone maker in the world, did not make it to the list. © 2017 Tech Times, All rights reserved. Do not reproduce without permission.

UK house prices fell for a second month in a row in April in a sign that the squeeze on family incomes is starting to weigh on the property market. The average price of a home fell by 0.4% over the month to £207,699, following a 0.3% drop in March, according to Nationwide. It was the first time that prices fell in two consecutive months in nearly five years and drove down the annual rate of house price growth to 2.6%, the weakest since June 2013. Robert Gardner, Nationwide’s chief economist, said the slowdown could reflect the broader backdrop for consumer finances, which are coming under increasing pressure from a combination of rising inflation and weak wage growth. “While monthly figures can be volatile, the recent softening in price growth may be a further indication that households are starting to react to the emerging squeeze on real incomes or to affordability pressures in key parts of the country,” Gardner said. He said the outlook for the property market over the coming months was particularly difficult to predict because of the upcoming general election and uncertainty surrounding the outcome of Brexit negotiations. “The economic outlook is unusually uncertain, and housing market trends will depend crucially on developments in the wider economy,” he said. Nationwide said housing affordability was a key issue for potential homebuyers, with a typical house price currently at 6.1 times average earnings, well above the long run average of 4.3 times earnings. The lender expects house price growth to more than halve in 2017 to about 2%, from 4.5% in 2016. Consumers have been the main driver of UK economic growth since the financial crisis but there are mounting signs that the appetite for spending is beginning to wane. Retail sales are falling, and households have been dipping into their savings to maintain spending in the face of rising prices in the shops. Inflation is currently at 2.3% and expected to rise to 3% in the coming months as the weak pound since the Brexit vote feeds through to the cost of living. Howard Archer, the chief UK economist at IHS Markit, said that against this backdrop house prices were likely to come under increasing pressure. “We suspect markedly weakening consumer fundamentals, likely mounting caution over making major spending decisions, and elevated house price to earnings ratios will weigh down further on housing market activity and house prices over the coming months,” he said. However, he said that a housing crash is unlikely because the shortage of homes coming on to the market will limit the extent to which prices fall. The weakening consumer backdrop was reflected in the latest high street lending figures from the British Bankers’ Association, which showed growth in consumer lending slowed to 6.1% in March from 6.5% in February. The fall was due to slower growth in personal loans, credit card borrowing, and overdrafts. “In March, annual growth in consumer borrowing from the main high street banks slowed, perhaps mirroring the dip seen in retail sales volumes as price rises appear to have started biting into consumers’ spending,” said Eric Leenders, the BBA’s managing director for retail banking. Mortgage approvals for house purchase were 2.8% lower in March than in February, at 41,061. Hansen Lu, property economist at Capital Economics, said the BBA data and the latest Nationwide house prices index made sense together. “Mortgage approvals for house purchase fell in March and that subdued demand was, in turn, reflected by a modest dip in house prices in April. The main reason for this slowdown is high house prices, suggesting that prices are unlikely to accelerate again this year.”

Britain’s factories enjoyed their fastest growth for three years last month on the back of strong demand at home and abroad, according to a survey that will temper worries about a Brexit-driven economic slowdown this year. The manufacturing sector, which makes up about a tenth of the UK economy, enjoyed the strongest pick-up in new work since the start of 2014 and smashed expectations in April. Firms also took on new workers at a faster pace and ramped up production, the closely watched Markit/CIPS UK Manufacturing PMI (pdf) showed. Its main barometer of business activity jumped to 57.3 in April from 54.2 in March. That confounded forecasts for a modest slowdown to 54.0 in a Reuters poll of economists. A reading above 50 shows growth while one below indicates it is contracting. The measure for manufacturing only briefly fell below that no-change mark in the wake of last June’s vote to leave the EU but then recovered along with readings for the construction industry and the much larger services sector. The latest manufacturing report signalled that strong demand came from the domestic market as well as overseas, continuing a pattern of export support for UK firms from the weaker pound. Sterling’s sharp fall since the Brexit vote has made UK goods cheaper in foreign markets. But it has also raised the cost of imports. The survey of more than 600 industrial companies follows official figures last week showing the UK economy slowed markedly in the first three months of 2017 as the effect of higher import costs worked its way through the economy, raising inflation and squeezing consumer spending. But while some consumer-facing businesses have struggled, manufacturers have reported a boost from the weaker pound and from a recovery in the global economy. PMI surveys published earlier on Tuesday showed eurozone factory growth hit a six-year high in April. The PMI report’s compilers said strength and demand from North America, Europe, Africa and Brazil were helping UK factories. But they cautioned against reading too much into April’s bounce. “Although only accounting for 10% of the economy, the upturn in the manufacturing sector represents some welcome good news after the sharp slowing in GDP seen in the first quarter,” said Rob Dobson, senior economist at IHS Markit. “The big question is whether this growth spurt can be maintained, especially given the backdrop of ongoing market volatility and a number of political headwinds such as elections at home and abroad. Other surges seen since the middle of last year have generally proved short-lived, as weak wage growth sapped consumer spending.” The report also raised concerns about manufacturers facing shortages of raw materials. That was adding to cost pressures and companies mentioned paying higher prices for a wide range of materials, including chemicals, metals and plastics. But input cost inflation had eased significantly since hitting a record high in January, Dobson noted. Mike Rigby, head of manufacturing at Barclays highlighted the mixed effects of the weak pound on manufacturers. “Despite some easing, inflationary pressures will continue to take their toll on factory gate prices and ultimately manufacturers’ margins, however, the weakness in sterling and an improving global outlook continue to provide export opportunities for the sector,” he said. “What we don’t want to see now is the prospect of fractious Brexit negotiations fostering a more cautious and uncertain approach to investment from the sector.” Economists are looking ahead to PMI reports from the construction sector on Wednesday and the services sector on Thursday for more clues on how the economy fared last month. Some doubt how far a manufacturing improvement can make up for weaker consumer spending. Martin Beck, senior economic adviser to forecasters the EY ITEM Club, said: “With ‘the makers’ accounting for little more than 10% of GDP, it will require a strong performance from the sector to compensate for headwinds from inflation and other sources affecting the dominant services sector.” But Ruth Gregory, UK economist at the consultancy Capital Economics, said: “After last week’s surprisingly downbeat first quarter GDP figures ... today’s survey provides us with optimism that the manufacturing sector should play a bigger role in offsetting the slowdown in the consumer services sector ahead.”

Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) will revolutionize the ways in which we conduct business, perform research, enforce the law, manage natural resources, educate students, and execute many other tasks. While advances in computing technology enhance cloud storage and maximize data exploitation, the UAV imaging sensor remains the key component driving system performance and market growth. This book, Getting Started with UAV Imaging Systems: A Radiometric Guide, is an effort to examine UAV imaging systems in light of their platform and applications contexts. The following excerpt from Chapter 5 focuses on platforms as prelude to examining how mission requirements are met using commercial cameras in different regions of the electromagnetic spectrum. The larger platforms' imaging sensors are well-defined; rather than developing new sensors for each mission, sensor suites for theater and tactical U. S. DoD platforms are specified long in advance. Table 5.2 lists mission and payload types on some larger platforms. Several carry both video and still cameras and include laser instrumentation for covert target illumination.1 While different UAV systems have been designed for different missions and/or altitudes/durations, there is some competition for instruments within the DoD. For example, sensors from the manned U2 reconnaissance platform have been integrated into Global Hawk with the goal of long-term cost savings.3 Small UAV platforms and their imaging sensors serve both military and commercial markets. Increasingly, the term "sUAS" appears to distinguish this type of platform/sensor and associated ground-control hardware from its heavier cousins.4 The Raven, for example, is noteworthy in this category. "SWaP-C," where "C" stands for cost, expresses the importance of minimizing the size, weight, power and cost constraints while meeting mission requirements. Manufacturers advertise their sensors as "low SWaP" or even "smallest SWaP."5 Table 5.3 lists some of the factors that contribute to the design of low SWaP-C systems. The extreme example of "small" is a swarm configuration, whereby numerous small platforms carrying miniature cameras are connected via a communications network.9 More specifically, the term refers to the ability of a collection of small UAVs to achieve a specific objective. The technologies necessary for a successful swarm mission include those in Table 5.3; artificial intelligence (AI) also contributes.10 Miniaturized hardware and enhanced networking capability are key to this strategy's success, which furthers the disruptive effects of UAV imaging. Very small drones that fit in the palm of one's hand are already commercially available.11 The choice of a UAV platform for a smaller sensor is not typically performed according to one, uniform set of criteria. Often, the platform integrator will choose a sensor that best suits a customer's application (one reason it behooves sensor manufacturers to work closely with platform developers.) Contributing factors in platform selection include cost and deployment strategy. For example, situations that involve limited space for maneuvering (such as dense forests) benefit from a rotary aircraft for vertical takeoff and landing.12 Table 5.4 lists some of the factors that influence platform selection. Many other factors are relevant for specific applications, including the ability of the platform to fit a specific carrying case or transport backpack. Integrating UAV sensors to their platforms is an art in its infancy and will develop as the industry matures. 1. Traditionally, military cameras operating in the visible portion of spectrum are called "EO." Therefore, one often sees the term "EO/IR" sensors to refer to visible and infrared cameras, respectively. 2. Catapulted from a rail launcher, see p. 43 in Gertler1. 3.

Samsung's new flagship phone is undoubtedly beautiful. But beauty comes at a cost. The Galaxy S8 costs $307.50 to build, which includes the cost of materials and manufacturing, according to an estimate released Thursday by analytics firm IHS Markit. That's more than Samsung's previous Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge, which cost $255.10 and $271.20 to make respectively, said IHS Markit. The Galaxy S8 also costs more to build than its competitors, according IHS, including the Apple iPhone 7 and Google Pixel XL. Here's a look at the estimated material and manufacturing costs of several high-end phones put together by statistics site Statista. For consumers, the Galaxy S8 -- on sale around the world starting Friday -- costs $750, £689 or AU$1,199. Samsung said last week that it was already seeing high demand for the phone, with preorders for the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus surpassing the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge's preorder numbers from February 2016.
