Google-backed Magic Leap opens up to third-party developers

Magic Leap, the mysterious startup backed by Google that is developing a headset for augmented reality, wants outside help to create content for its device.

On Tuesday, the company said it would be opening its platform to third-party developers with an SDK (software development kit) that would let developers create content for Magic Leap?s system.

Magic Leap has developed what it calls a photonics light field chip, which would project 3D images directly on people?s eyes and superimpose those images over what users see in the real world. It?s designed to be superior to stereoscopic vision, which uses two different images to trick the eye into thinking something is 3D. Magic Leap thinks this ?augmented? content could take any number of forms, for applications in gaming but also in storytelling and communications.

Broadcom announces new tri-band, MU-MIMO, 802.11ac router chipset

New Wi-Fi technologies might not seem particularly sexy, but they?re critical to the growing IoT market. Whereas routers were once primarily judged on raw speed and signal strength, new models sport a bevy of fancy features designed for households with multiple Internet-connected devices. This is where Broadcom?s new 5G Wi-Fi XStream MU-MIMO platform comes into play.

In terms of speed, the second generation platform boasts 5.4Gbps of total Wi-Fi data throughput, though that?s an aggregate derived from adding the maximum theoretical throughput of both the 2.4GHz and 5GHz channels. Even so, that metric gives Broadcom the right to claim it has the fastest router platform available today.

Oracle brings Ghostery into Marketing Cloud to help users monitor their websites

The average company has about 70 different types of third-party code on its website but is aware of only about a third of them. The rest are hidden in services like ad networks, widgets and analytics tools, and they can bog down performance, threaten security and compromise search-engine optimization.

That?s according to Ghostery, which on Tuesday announced a partnership with Oracle whereby its TrackerMap Live monitoring tool is now available to users of the Oracle Marketing Cloud. Offered on the Oracle Marketing AppCloud, TrackerMap Live is designed to help reveal the interconnected ecosystem of code and third-party tags on company websites.

Using TrackerMap Live, companies can pinpoint where each tag on their site comes from and see what its effects are. Along the way, they can determine whether vendors are placing unwanted or non-secure piggyback tags on their website without permission.

Reading service Pocket built into Firefox, replacing Reading List feature

Pocket, a popular ?read it later? service, has been integrated directly into Firefox with an update to the browser pushed out on Tuesday.

It?s a fitting progression for Pocket, which began life in 2007 as an extension for Firefox called Read it Later. Since then, the service has added a wide variety of features and expanded to other platforms, but its core functionality has remained the same: users feed it some piece of media from the web that they?d like to save for later, and the service will hold on to it. With the new integration, users can log into Pocket using an existing account they have with the service, or sign in with their Firefox account.
