Google to host $100,000 developer challenge for Project Ara


The Project Ara team just wrapped up its first developers conference, and although there was plenty of excitement, there are many huge challenges ahead before the modular smartphone becomes a Real Thing. To that end, Google is laying down a challenge to developers and offering a $100,000 prize as an incentive. The details of the competition will be made public in mid-May on the Project Ara website.

Google’s Project Ara is still considered a moonshot — one that has a small percentage of success — but it certainly has garnered the interest of tech geeks and developers around the world. Now, in an effort to attract even more developers, Google is apparently gearing up to offer a developer challenge worth as much as $100,000. Google hasn’t revealed the details for the challenge just yet; instead, we’ll have to wait until sometime next month to hear what sort of criteria the company is looking for. Tech News World learned about the two grand prizes, however. “The top two runners-up will get all-expenses paid trips for two or three people to the next Ara devcon — there will be a few more held this year — and guaranteed hardware for the project,” the news outlet said, citing information from the head of Project Ara Paul Eremenko.

Swiss clock maker’s deal with Samsung is a slap in the face to Apple


Back in 2012, the Swiss Federal Railways company SBB accused Apple of stealing its iconic clock design. Eventually, Apple did the right thing and agreed to pay $21 million to Swiss Railways to license the pleasing analog clockface design. It was a minor humiliation for the computer company, which prides itself on thoughtful and careful design. Now, Swiss Railways has poured salt in the wound by giving a huge contract to Samsung, Apple’s archrival. 

Samsung recently inked a deal with Swiss Federal Railways, the same organization that accused Apple of copying one of its iconic clock designs, leading some to speculate that Samsung may have sought the contract solely to make a dig at Apple. Earlier this month, Samsung revealed that it had reached a deal with Swiss Federal Railways to supply 30,000 phones and tablets to the organization also known as the SBB. But back in 2012, after the debut of iOS 6, the same state-owned rail company had a public spatwith Apple, in which the SBB accused the iPhone maker of stealing its iconic clock face design created in 1944 by Swiss engineer Hans Hilfiker. The clock remains the property of SBB, and is still used in the Swiss operation’s train stations, and the clock design Apple had used in iOS 6 bore a striking resemblance.
