DisplayPort 2.0 launches, promising 8K video support by late 2020
While U.S. broadcasters are still mired in 1080p, foreign markets are already looking at 8K video—and that's exactly what the new generation of DisplayPort technology, DisplayPort 2.0, is designed to address.

In late 2020, the first products incorporating the new DP 2.0 standard are expected to be made available, according to the Video Electronics Standards Association, or VESA. DP 2.0 can use the existing DP connector that appears on many high-end desktop PCs, or be carried over cabling that uses the standard USB-C connector—though you'll still need a PC with DP 2.0 silicon to support it. 

DP 2.0 offers three times as much bandwidth as DP 1.4a, the current standard. While DP 2.0 keeps the four available data lanes as its predecessor, the available link rate has been increased up to 20Gbps per lane with 128-bit/132-bit channel coding. That translates into a maximum of 77Gbps, with support for 8K video: 7680x4320 at 60Hz, with full color 4:4:4 resolution at 30 bits per pixel for HDR.

Oracle does-in Dyn, resets DNS services to cloud
Some may call it a normal, even boring course of vendor business operations but others find it a pain the rump or worse.

Oppo announces the ultimate notch killer: an under-screen selfie cam
Smartphones are on a mad dash to eradicate bezels and notches, and already this year we've seen pop-up selfies, and flipping rear cams, and hole-punch displays. But now Oppo is showing off what could be the holy grail of notch killers: an under-screen camera.

The China-based smartphone maker unveiled the tech at MWC Shanghai, but it comes with some serious caveats. For one, it's basically a proof-of-concept, so it isn't available in a phone just yet and Oppo hasn't given a time frame for when it will be. For another, it requires heavy lifting behind-the-scenes.

Due to the inherent quality hit with a camera that's placed under a screen, Oppo says it's developed algorithms for haze removal, HDR, and white balance to create a selfie cam "that rivals current smartphones in the market today." That's not very convincing, but Oppo has lots of time to tweak and refine its computational model, since no other company has announced an in-display camera.

Oppo's Under-Screen Selfie Camera Makes Notches Feel Like a Lazy Design Placeholder
You can tell yourself whatever you need to feel better about having to stare at your smartphone's ugly notch all day, but it's an awkward design decision that serves as a placeholder until a more elegant solution to hiding a front facing camera (and other tech) comes along.

Apple reportedly canceled quantum dot camera technology for the iPhone 11
The iPhones arriving this September will feature more cameras than ever, according to various leaks from the past few months. Apple is said to be bringing triple-lens cameras to the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Max, while the iPhone XR successor will get a dual-lens shooter. Apple will likely bake a bunch of extra camera features into iOS 13 to take advantage of the additional lens, but these have yet to leak.A new story from the UK, meanwhile, does mention a camera feature that Apple has abandoned because of costs.Apple is believed to be the major Nanoco client that canceled a multi-million dollar deal, per The Telegraph, which crashed its stock by 74%. If this kind of stock behavior sounds familiar, it's because it happened in the past with UK companies that lost lucrative supply deals with Apple.Nanoco would not confirm the identity of the customer, but the company did announce a contract with a "large undisclosed US listed corporation" in 2018 valued at £17.1 million ($21.75 million) over two years, which amounted to more than half its revenues. The Telegraph believes that company to be Apple.The two parties were working on advanced image sensors that should have been featured in this year's iPhones, but Apple apparently abandoned Nanoco's quantum dot technology in favor of an alternative.Quantum dot technology allows for "precise control of light that allows for higher-quality digital camera sensors than the silicon ones in today's smartphones," the report notes, adding that quantum dot t
