PDV Raises $218M, Will Launch 2-Way Radio Network

Pacific DataVision Inc. said on Tuesday that part of the $218 million in equity funding it recently raised will go toward the purchase of Sprint Corp.'s spectrum licenses, as PDV works to launch a two-way radio network for businesses.

PDV, which is run by the co-founders of Nextel Communications Inc., said it has agreed to buy all six of Sprint's 900-megahertz spectrum licenses. According to a Tuesday press release from PDV, upon the completion of the deal with Sprint, it will focus on developing a walkie-talkie-style service for small and medium-size businesses.

The Paterson, New Jersey-headquartered company said it has already received approval for the service — which will be offered primarily through Motorola Solutions Inc.'s authorized dealer network — from the Federal Communications Commission.

"With the availability of Motorola Solutions' digital radio technology, we see an opportunity to incorporate PDV's proprietary cloud-based mobile resource management solutions into a next generation offering for businesses," Brian McAuley, chairman of PDV and one of Nextel's co-founders, said in a statement on Tuesday. "These solutions increase productivity through the delivery of real-time information from and about mobile workers to their managers."

Motorola Solutions will lease a portion of the spectrum from an undisclosed PDV subsidiary, PDV said.

Morgan O'Brien, who serves as PDV's vice chairman and who co-founded Nextel with McAuley, echoed the sentiments of his colleague in a Tuesday statement of his own.

"By acquiring Sprint's nationwide spectrum at 900MHz, we take on the challenge of making the most efficient use of that spectrum," O'Brien said. "The selection of Motorola Solutions' digital radio technology is the first step in that process. We will continue to explore ways to further improve spectrum efficiency."

John C. Pescatore, CEO of PDV, praised his "extraordinarily talented team of telecommunications industry veterans," in a statement, saying that they have helped propel PDV to be positioned to create the "largest private push-to-talk network in major markets throughout the United States."

PDV paid Sprint for its spectrum licenses in the form of $10 million worth of PDV common stock. The company said it recently raised more than $218 million in equity funding in a private placement with institutional investors.

FBR Capital Markets & Co. acted as the sole initial purchaser and placement agent. The identities of the rest of the investors were not disclosed.

McAuley and O'Brien co-founded Nextel, which was originally known as FleetCall, in 1987. In the early 2000s, Nextel — which in 2005 would merge with Sprint — made a name for itself with the introduction of push-to-talk technology that enabled its cellphones to be used as high-tech walkie-talkies.

PDV — which in addition to its planned Nextel-esque two-way radio network develops mobile workforce communications and management solutions and provides customers with voice and photo documentation, GPS tracking and cloud-based management tools — was born in 1998.

Representatives for Sprint and Motorola did not immediately respond to requests for comment on Wednesday.

WWE Crowns New World Champion at Landmark Event

Last Sunday, World Wrestling Entertainment hosted the 30th edition of its annual ‘WrestleMania’ Pay Per View event. The company celebrated its anniversary in style by crowning a new World Champion in Daniel Bryan, a greatly respected wrestler formerly known as ‘The American Dragon’.

The show, held at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana, featured a star-studded card. Returning stars Hulk Hogan, ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin and The Rock made non-wrestling appearances, as more recent stars like Antonio Cesaro, The Shield and AJ Lee emerged triumphant in various contests.

The talk of the night, however, was Daniel Bryan.

As part of the WWE’s ongoing storyline, ‘D-Bry’ had made an enemy of company bosses Triple H and Stephanie McMahon. He first won the WWE Championship at the company’s ‘SummerSlam’ PPV in August of last year, however, minutes later, fellow wrestler Randy Orton arrived and took the belt away via the company’s ‘Money in the Bank’ stipulation.

Later, at September’s ‘Night of the Champions’ event, Bryan was victorious over Orton, only to have his title belt stripped away the following night by HHH. Further attempts to raise the gold at October’s ‘BattleGround’ PPV and October’s ‘Hell in a Cell’ event were also unsuccessful (in most cases due to some outside interference).

During this time, Daniel Bryan’s quest for the WWE laurels became a mainstream concern. His T-shirts were seen being worn at numerous American sporting events and his signature chants of “YES! YES! YES!” and “NO! NO! NO!” were heard in a multitude of sports.

For a while, the WWE appeared to have dropped Daniel Bryan as a Main Event prospect, raising the ire of his fellow wrestlers and wrestling fans alike. The company promoted returning wrestler and former champion Batista as being the hero that would unseat the villainous Randy Orton, but fans rejected this premise, booing Batista and demanding Bryan.

The event stipulations were that Daniel Bryan first had to defeat multi-time WWE Champion Triple H in order to gain a place in the Main Event against Orton and Batista (all are considerably bigger than the diminutive would-be champ). If successful, Bryan would then have to triumph over the combined might of two established WWE stars in order to finallyhere.

The majority of fans were overjoyed by the result.

More controversial (and far more polarizing) was legendary wrestler The Undertaker’s loss to former WWE and UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) kingpin Brock Lesnar. The Undertaker is famous for his winning streak at the WrestleMania events, having never lost in 21 years of appearances at the company’s flagship show. Lesnar’s victory signalled ‘Taker’s first ever loss at the event, something which many fans found distasteful and upsetting.

WrestleMania has been the WWE’s signature event since 1985. The show was wrestling’s first major Pay Per View event and featured appearances by mainstream MTV stars of the time like Cindi Lauper, Mr. T and even Liberace.

In addition to numerous live musical acts (most notably Ray Charles, Little Richard, Living Colour, Run DMC, Willie Nelson, Ozzy Osbourne and Motorhead) later celebrity WrestleMania appearances have included boxing Champion Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather, American footballer Lawrence ‘LT’ Taylor, Mike Tyson, baseball legend Pete Rose, Pamela Anderson, Burt Reynolds, Mickey Rourke, Alice Cooper and, of course, Muhammad Ali.

The 30th anniversary show was also the first WWE event to be streamed online via the company’s newest venture, the WWE Network, a live-streaming subscription service.

NASA Confirms Liquid Water on Saturn’s Moonell

A major scientific discovery was made this week as scientists uncovered overwhelming evidence indicating the presence of a ‘great lake’ on Saturn’s moon Enceladus. The discovery is important because it marks Enceladus as being a possible site for life existing outside of our own planet.

Initially, icy material was seen being squirted into space from an odd ‘striped’ pattern on the moon’s southern pole. It was theorized that this material was water being ejected from a large body of liquid H20 on the moon’s surface. This week, measurements from NASA’s Cassini probe revealed the water’s gravitational signal, effectively confirming the theory. The Cassini probe even sampled the water as it was ejected into space.

Professor Luciano Less, of the Sapienza University of Rome, who was interviewed on the subject by BBC news, said, "The measurements that we have done are consistent with the existence of a large water reservoir about the size (volume) of Lake Superior in North America,"

To add context to this statement, Lake Superior is the largest freshwater lake in the world by surface and the third largest in the world by volume. It reaches depths of 147 metres and has an approximate volume of 12,000 Km3. It also plays home to over 80 different species of fish.

Data extracted from the probe suggests that the water is about 40km underneath Enceladus’ icy surface.

Enceladus is locked in an eccentric orbit around its parent planet; this means that the moon’s orbit is non-circular and it therefore follows that Saturn’s gravity will have the effect of melting the ice in some places and freezing any liquid found in others.

There are a lot of places in our solar system that possibly house liquid water, but not as many where that water can come into contact with rock. Rock is important because rocks release minerals and salts into the water - and these materials are among the key building blocks of life.

Professor Andrew Coates of the UCL-Mullard Space Science Laboratory was also interviewed for BBC news, he remained positive regarding the possibility of microbal life on Enceladus. Prof Coates said, "I think Enceladus has gone to the top of the charts in terms of a place where there could be life. (...) It's got several of the things which you need for life - there's certainly the presence of heat, there's liquid water in this ocean, there's organics and that type of chemistry going on. (...) The only question is, has there been enough time for life to develop?"

However, as Professor David Stevenson, from the California Institute of Technology, pointed out “we don’t know whether the ocean is being added to at present or is freezing up”. It is theoretically possible that the great body of water confirmed this week has been there for 100 million years, but it is also potentially a far more recent development. At present, no one knows for sure.

It Ain’t Broke, So Don’t Fix It: Capaldi’s Twelfth Doctor Keeps Matt Smith’s Screwdriver...And Leaked Photos Reveal a New Monster

Photographs (and a short video) have appeared online which apparently show that new ‘Doctor Who’ star Peter Capaldi will not have an updated sonic screwdriver for the latest series of the show (at least, not until episode 4, anyway)...The pictures also teased fans with images of a terrifying new monster.

The sonic screwdriver, a fictional piece of technology cherished by fans of the long-running British science fiction series, first appeared in the (now lost) 1968 story ‘Fury From the Deep’, starring Patrick Troughton as the eponymous Second Doctor.

Since that time, the screwdriver has been redesigned on numerous occasions. The first major screwdriver re-design occurred during the tenure of the Third Doctor (as played by Jon Pertwee).

Matt Smith, who portrayed the eleventh incarnation of the character from 2010 – 2013, received a brand new version of the device in his debut story ‘The Eleventh Hour’ in 2010. Prior to this, Tenth Doctor David Tennant and Ninth Doctor Christopher Eccleston had shared the same basic screwdriver design in their adventures. It is the Matt Smith-era version of the device that Capaldi appears to be using in the photographs/film.

The scenes being filmed in the photos apparently belonged to episode 3 of the newest series and were being shot by veteran ‘Casualty’, ‘Brookside’ and ‘Hollyoaks’ director Paul Murphy. The majority of the footage appears to feature multiple takes of Capaldi checking the screwdriver before anxiously running down a small alleyway.

...They also hinted at the introduction of a chilling new villain.

The un-named monster appears to be some sort of robot, with an angular, insectoid head and two glowing blue eyes. It seems to be a completely new character, although it is possibly a radical revision of an existing one. Only the head can be seen in the video, but it is enough to have fans speculating already.

Scottish actor Peter Capaldi was officially named as the casting choice for the Twelfth Doctor in August of last year and put in a cameo in the 50th anniversary special ‘The Day of The Doctor’, before making his debut in full during the Christmas special episode ‘The Time of The Doctor’.

The upcoming series (series 8 of the revived show) will feature Capaldi’s first full episodes in the role.

Android Astronaut Takes Off

Robots are in the news a lot lately. From Google’s mysterious plans to do something vaguely robotic over the next ten years (we’re not allowed to know exactly what), to Amazon’s proposal to build flying drones for international deliveries, it seems that the metal munchkins are everywhere, but none are as cute, nor as interesting, as Kirobo.

Resembling a cross between a mid-90’s SNES protagonist and an overgrown Lego man, Kirobo the robot stands at just 33CM tall (which is still positively gargantuan for a Lego man). His claim to fame? Kirobo is the world’s first robot astronaut and is currently orbiting the Earth aboard the International Space Station (ISS), where he has been since August of this year.

Kirobo was designed and built during a collaboration between an advertising company called Dentsu, the University of Tokyo and car manufacturers Toyota. He was designed as a companion for Japanese astronaut Koichi Wakata, who is perhaps best known as the first Japanese person to command the ISS.

Kirobo’s creators hope that the diminutive robot will provide emotional support to Wakata, providing here regarding whether robotic companions can comfort individuals who are subjected to long periods of isolation.

Kirobo has been specially designed to navigate zero gravity environments, he can also speak and understand spoken commands. In fact, Kirobo has many of the same properties as a smartphone in that he can record video and make (very) long distance calls (although his high score on ‘Juice Cubes’ is not yet a matter of public record). Kirobo’s facial recognition software means that he can recognise and react to certain individuals (presumably empathizing with their moods).

In addition to being a cutting edge piece of technology, Kirobo also appears to be of a friendly disposition, the little guy has already called us from space, saying, “My dream is to see human beings and robots live together as friends,"

Kirobo also reportedly requested Wakata’s presence at the station, saying “I really want to see you soon”, he’ll be waiting a long time, however, as Wakata is not due at the ISS for about eleven months.

is xbox 360 better than ps3

A long time ago in a galaxy of gaming far, far away...There were two factions engaged in a perpetual war, a war between two groups of nerds that had waged since at least the 1970’s...The two clans had very different ideas of how games ought to be played and very different cultures, sensitivities and beliefs. On one side, were the PC gamers; arrogant, elitist and prone to almost pathological sarcasm. Games, for them, were hi-spec, graphically rendered masterpieces, the sort of exquisite perfection that Baudelaire may have appreciated had he ever played the original Duke Nukem.

On the other side of this intellectual no-man’s land, their dreaded, bitter, Cromwellian rivals did dwell. These were the console gamers (the words spat with derision) the sort of ignorant peasants who rose above their station in life. Not content with ‘Pong’ or the arcade machines they spent all their coins in, they demanded more, and they got it. These ‘cartridge-gamers’ did not to bother knowing the game specs or even uploading anything at all. Oh, the nerve of it! Just slap the cartridge in and play!? Whatever next?

Well, flash forward to the early noughties and sadly, not much had changed. Console games had evolved from their humble origins, and had made their way into the home as a sort of super-peripheral. PCs were now a vital part of everyday life, and a house without one would seem as archaic as a home without a TV set. The nerd clans had grown, and still the debate raged, an evolutionary standoff of Morlock/Eloi proportions.

Until computer Gods Microsoft did the unthinkable. The definitive PC makers designed, built and sold in record numbers, their very own console. It may as well have been the bomb.This, here, blurred the lines considerably, and now, even Sony’s Playstation has taken note, adding web-based content to its PS3. Internet gaming, for too long the domain of the descendents of the PC brigade, suddenly opened its doors to the Cartridge family and a robust meeting of minds has been taking place ever since. Often involving swearing and abuse hurled at people’s mothers, but whatever, progress is progress.

XBox 360 has built on this further, and whilst I stay true to my own proletarian origins by preferring the Playstation, I have to admit the X Box 360 is quite a thing. There are, of course, those old die hards who resent the creation of a console with computer innards. Console gameplay (ever the strong point, especially now with the new may-as-well-be-Playstation-great-they-finally-listened-to-me-yay-now-where’s-my-check? Controller) With PC processing power? Oh, the Humanity! It’s like that kid’s book where the white and black elephants go to war and eventually the grey elephant is born. Peace in our time. Ahhh.

The Dead Actor’s Studio

Imagine a young Marlon Brando starring alongside Johnny Depp, or Audrey Hepburn playing rival to Sandra Bullock as Marilyn Monroe stops by for a catty cameo.

Depending on how you look at it, this is either tantalizing ‘fantasy film making’ or else an utterly horrible, cash-in exercise in Hollywood excess. Whatever your viewpoint, it does seem likely that someone, somewhere will try this in the near future.

About three years ago, the news broke that George Lucas, the genius behind the ‘Star Wars’ merchandise (and a couple of related movies), was buying up the likeness rights to a plethora of iconic, yet deceased, leading men and famous actresses from Hollywood’s golden age. His plan? To use a concoction of existing footage, CGI and motion capture to create reasonable facsimiles of classic Hollywood stars and have them appear in future films, despite the notable handicap of being, well, dead.

Initially, it was just for one project, but it raised the prospect of other films being made, as well as a number of interesting philosophical issues.

The majority of critics reacted negatively to the notion of these ‘Franken-films’, some saying that the magic of an individual acting performance would be notably absent in the films, others upset that the actors themselves could potentially ‘star’ in projects that they may not have supported in life.

It really must be said, however, that blockbuster movies like 2009’s ‘Avatar’ and 2011’s ‘Rise of the Planet of the Apes’ already received plaudits for their use of motion capture techniques and CGI ‘acting’. It is an accepted part of modern cinema, like it or not.

Lest we forget, George Lucas’ own ‘Star Wars’ films also featured a number of purely CG characters. In our era, we are becoming very used to CG characters; even CG versions of real actors are commonplace. It really isn’t a huge leap of imagination (or available technology) to foresee deceased stars headlining blockbusters once again.

We are also living in a world that specializes in the glorification of deceased idols and recycled imagery (take a look at this month’s music magazines and count how many times you see Jimi Hendrix, Kurt Cobain or other dead stars on the covers). Look at the movie magazines as they feature young DeNiro as Travis Bickle, or Ray Liotta as Henry Hill. We, as consumers, are being conditioned to expect our stars to be able to do anything we can imagine, including coming back from the dead.

Why we want it:

The question here, to at least some degree, is ‘do we want it?’ but for now, I’m going to be positive and assume that we do...

Bringing classic actors back to ‘life’ would be a daring and controversial decision and would inspire all kinds of debates. It would also, no doubt, stimulate the film industry by providing literally hundreds of thousands of new prospects, pairings and casting choices.

On the downside, it would probably create an updated version of the old Hollywood studio system that would likely prove to be a legal nightmare involving no small amount of heartache for the families of the stars being featured. It could also have the negative effect of holding down upcoming talent.

However, many Hollywood actors do what they do for a shot at immortality and this is, frankly, the closest that they are likely to get to that goal. It would not surprise me at all if ‘likeness rights’ contracts started containing an ‘after death’ clause that specified use of the actor’s image in posthumous film projects.

Culturally speaking, in a world where dead musicians like Hendrix and 2Pac routinely release albums and where popular music is dominated by the ‘sampling’ (and in some cases, outright theft) of other works, or where film texts constantly, almost obsessive-compulsively, reference each other (in whantat has become the intertextual equivalent of an M.C Escher drawing), rehashing the stars of the past seems like an obvious choice.

Dead icons could spice up Hollywood by adding controversy, class and bankability to the summer’s contrived blockbuster selection. Plus, all their skeletons, secrets and shameful actions are already a matter of public record, so there’s no ill-timed revelatory ‘gossip’ that’s going to rear up and threaten the production.

Even those who oppose the making of such movies will still have to watch them in order to write the requisite bad reviews, this simply proves the old adage that controversy generates cash.

When can we expect it?

Oh snap, it already happened. In the year 2000, actor Oliver Reed sadly died during the filming of Ridley Scott’s ‘Gladiator’. In order for him to finish what would become his final role, the VFX team created a CG ‘mask’ of Reed’s face and used a body double to complete their film.

Remember that car advert with Steve McQueen? It has already begun.

Real, workable CGI stars are already a reality, but the technology does not yet exist to create a completely CG James Dean for a sequel to ‘Rebel Without a Cause’. I’d give it maybe 10-20 years before we start seeing the stars in respectful, tasteful cameo roles, or else old actors performing alongside their younger selves. After that, it’ll be 3-5 years before we see the screen idols like Errol Flynn, Clark Gable and Grace Kelly headlining movies again.

Cool factor 3/5 – It really depends on how these ‘stars’ are handled. The results could, potentially, be beautiful codas to a star’s career (which is how they could be sold to the audience), but they could also be horribly insulting, denigrating the work of great actors and actresses. Time is going to tell, as usual...

Electric Buses Set to Arrive on Time

Eight experimental electric buses will be operating in Milton Keynes from late January onwards. The fleet will begin operating along the busy Number 7 route, which covers the 15 miles between Wolverton and Bletchley. They are the first electric buses to operate in the UK.

UK-based bus manufacturer Wrightbus have built these new electric buses in conjunction with Japanese company Mitsui and UK engineering group Arup.

Wireless ‘booster’ plates in the road, placed at the beginning/end of the route, give the buses a charge that allows them to operate for a full day. They are then charged overnight at the bus depot.

The buses will need to stop over the booster plates, before lowering the bus’ own receiver plates and resting there for 10 minutes’ charge time. The journey will then resume, exactly the same way a regular bus ride does.

The process is called ‘inductive charging’ and it involves electricity passing though wire coils in the plates that creates a magnetic field. The field then shares its voltage with the bus’ receiver plates, charging them up.

Similar electric bus trials are being implemented in Italy, the Netherlands and Germany. In 2013, South Korea unveiled a 7.5-mile stretch of road, which recharges electric vehicles as they {you can find morehere, without requiring any charge time at all.

In an interview with the BBC, John Bint of Milton Keynes Council said, "Electric buses have huge potential and we're exploring how they can help us take better care of the environment without compromising passenger service,"

If these trial models prove to be successful, the Council plans to run them all across the town.

The environmental impact of this scheme is certainly considerable, with local councils potentially being able to significantly reduce their area’s carbon footprint. In addition, the future development of electric buses can only help the similar evolution of the electric car, an invention that has the potential to seriously lower the world’s carbon emissions.

Arup consultant John Miles who is also an engineering professor at Cambridge University, told BBC that, "These electric buses will be expected to do everything a diesel bus does (...) They will be operating on a demanding urban route, and that's all part of the trial's aim - to prove that electric buses can be tough as well as green."

Book about Jewel Encrusted Skeleton ‘Saints’ released to great enjoyment

Paul Koudounaris, who’s also identified by his nickname ‘Indiana Bones’ in known as an writer, photographer and principal professional on bone-decorated places and ossuarys. Earlier in 2013, Koudounaris released a book that includes hd images of that 400-year-old ‘catacomb saints’ of Rome, a bunch of corpses that was painstakingly ornamented with gems and finery before being offered as the remnants of saints to congregations across Europe.

Throughout the Protestant Overhaul of that 16th Century, Catholic churches were routinely stripped of these relics, cryptogram and finery. So they can defy this, The Vatican had antique skeletons removed out of the Catacombs of Rome and lavishly decorated as a remnants of recognized saints.

Even though regularly forgotten until Koudounaris released his book, the catacomb saints still fascinate concerned parties; they can still encourage religious zeal. In 1977, the settlement of Ruttenbach in Bavaria labored hard to raise enough money to buy back 2 of their original saints from undisclosed collectors, the ornamental skeletons had initially been auctioned off in 1803.

The book, which Koudounaris has surreptitiously titled ‘Heavenly Bodies’ sees its writer attempt to locate and photograph each of the present crypt saints.

In their glory days (a period that lasted over 200 years before conclusively coming to a close within the nineteenth century), the saints traversed everywhere, being transported at enormous expense by the Church. They were venerated as things of devotion, or conduits for prayer.

However the saints could appear strange to contemporary eyes (one Telegraph reporter described them as ‘ghastly’), it is imperative that you remember that those who prayed at the feet of those gilded cadavers were a lot closer to demise than their contemporary counterparts. Within the wake of The Black Death (which recurred regularly throughout Europe from the 14th to the 17th Centuries), art, literature and also worship had moved to accept such ghoulish, macabre imagery.

The remnants were typically garlanded by nuns and sometimes positioned in various lifelike poses, before being protected in glass cabinets. Some of the careful decoration took as long as 5 years to finish, with jewelry and costumes being exceptionally impressive.

Koudounaris’ book, ‘Heavenly Bodies’ is available now.

The Definition of High Quality TV: It’s Not TV, Its HD TV

It seems that everybody is using high definition television these days. It’s rare you see a house without one. So, if you’re still unsure about if HD TV is right for you, here are a few of the advantages of a Sony TV. I say Sony TV because Sony are currently among the world leaders in HD TV design and their models are usually cutting edge to the point of drawing blood.

Hi-Def television (HD TV to its friends) is preferable for its superior sound and picture quality, when combined with a Blu Ray player and surround sound; you can create a spectacular cinema-lite experience, with screens that seem to get nearly as big, too! Now, whilst I am personally an ardent fan of thecinema experience, there’s a lot to be said for inviting your friends over for a movie marathon complete with microwave popcorn, beer and as-and-when-needed bathroom breaks.

Another cool feature is the ease with which you can hook your Sony TV up to a laptop computer (the cable costs about £7), meaning you can watch DV, MP4 and Avi files at your leisure. HD TV is a great development in television and home technology in general. The option to attach a Sony TV directly to the wall is also a plus; it’s a real space-saver as well as looking very cool indeed.

With HD TV, every movie is a great big adventure. Big budget, special effects-laden movies fare particularly well in HD. My brother recently bought the remastered, all-singing, all dancing Star Trek boxset and they look great on our HD TV. Especially in the case of the newer ones with the CGI Enterprise, the meticulous design and attention-to-detail really shines through. Set design, mise en scene and subtlety are really rewarded with an HD TV.

Television is the focal point of the modern living room. In fact, television seems to be of increasing importance to the social fabric itself. Is ownership of an HD TV the latest status symbol? Probably not, but it can’t hurt to upgrade just in case.
