Google, Samsung, Apple, cell carriers, and others are teaming up in an effort to fight robocalls

Everybody hates telemarketers, but the classic stranger on the line phone call has an important limiting factor: humans. Somebody has to get paid to make those calls, so there are big financial reasons for the spammers to knock it off.

Robocalls, on the other hand, require much less manpower so the bad actors have incentives to make a lot of them—even when rarely successful. With that in mind, Google, Samsung, Apple, and several other major tech corporations are getting together to try to protect consumers from predatory robocalls.

HTC Nexus Marlin and Sailfish get certified by FCC

It's been reported that this year's Nexus devices will be built by HTC for quite a while now. We've had recreations, we've had photos, and now we've got FCC certifications. These applications were granted earlier today for both Sailfish and Marlin.

Although these labels don't look like they'd tell us much, we can learn a few things from them. First off, we now have further confirmation that there will be two Nexus models. From the weights listed, it's clear that G-2PW4100 is the larger Marlin, while G-2PW2100 is the smaller Sailfish. In addition, the font of the labels looks very similar to that of Google's new logo.

Rumored follow-up to the NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet K1 seemingly cancelled

 

Around this time in 2014, NVIDIA unveiled the SHIELD Tablet, and then refreshed the device as the Tablet K1 at a lower price point in late 2015. Back in May, we brought you the report that an FCC filing for a possible 2016 follow-up to the Tablet K1 had leaked. Among some possible measurements, we could only tell that the device was codenamed “P2290W,” that it was simply called a “Shield Tablet” in the filing documents, and that it would ship with 2.4GHz and 5GHz 802.11ac Wi-Fi.

Furthermore, a poster on the NVIDIA forums claimed to have seen a mention of the device in the code for NVIDIA’s Android TV, citing it is as “Hawkeye.” He stated that “Hawkeye” had a Tegra X1 SoC, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, and 1920x1200 for a screen resolution.

Saygus says it's restarting the FCC approval process for the long-delayed V-Squared

The Saygus V-Squared smartphone, which debuted with an intriguing presentation at CES a year and a half ago and was still being changed and promised at MWC in February, still isn't available. Of course it isn't. It's coming any day now, it really is, right after Valve releases Half-Life 3, Apple makes a combination television-car, and Google brings Fiber to [insert your town here]. But Team Saygus is insistent that the development process continues, as evidenced by their latest tweet.

New NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet Pops Up At The FCC

NVIDIA launched the original SHIELD Tablet nearly two years ago in 2014, then it refreshed the device with a lower price point at the end of 2015 as the Tablet K1. However, it has yet to mention a true successor to the tablet. A new NVIDIA device has just hit the FCC, and it looks like a new SHIELD Tablet, if the documents are to be believed.

Verizon Wireless was caught recently using so-called "supercookies" to track users for advertising purposes, and unlike regular cookie files, there was no way to block or opt out of this tracking. Well, the FCC has finished its investigation of Verizon's tracking practices and fined the company a mere $1.35 million.

Google Glass: Enterprise Edition Shows Up On FCC Website, Google Continues To Play Dumb

Google's attempt to make a wearable face computer didn't go so well, but maybe the masses just weren't ready. Now, Google Glass is reportedly on its way to businesses with a new Enterprise Edition. This assumes even businesses have a use for Glass. Google has yet to acknowledge the existence of this device, but images are now up on the FCC's website. It looks a lot like the original Explorer Edition Glass.

The FCC Will Release Robocall And Information Weekly To Help You Block Scammers And Telemarketers

Hey you, the guy with the New Jersey accent who keeps offering me a small business loan: I hate you. I hate you with a passion that eclipses any love or loathing that I have felt for anything in the mortal world. I hate you and your army of randomly-dialing robots, I hate you and your legions of foreign switchboard operators trying to sucker Americans into possibly illegal and/or phony loans. The multiple times that I've actually gone through your rigamarole claiming to be Archibald Buttz, the owner of a talking dildo emporium called "Buzzwords," has not kept you from calling me on my private cell phone several times a week.

Unannounced OnePlus 'E1005' Appears At The FCC

The OnePlus 2 has been sort of available for a few months now, but it's still not something you can just purchase. The Shenzhen-based company is moving forward with a second phone, which has been mentioned in passing a few times. Now, it's shown up at the FCC. Most of the details of the device have been kept confidential, but there is one good image of it from the back and another not so good from the front.

The FCC Just Listed The LG-H790 And LG-H791 (Nexus 5X) With Dimensions, Screen Size, And LTE Bands

Ready for the new Nexus phone announcements next week? Google is, and apparently they're preparing for a launch soon after that. A device that's without a doubt the LG Nexus 5X has arrived at the Federal Communications Commission for documentation and certification, an essential step in selling any wireless device in the United States (and a frequent source for gadget leaks to hungry nerds). This particular phone uses the model number LG-H790, presumably the carrier-agnostic version for the United States, while the international version leaked by an Amazon India listing yesterday is the LG-H791. The LG-H791 has also been listed in the FCC database.
