 Canon has employed optical image stabilisation for over or close to, a decade. When a scene is captured on two or more frames and the camera knows exactly what the intervening movement was (shake or otherwise - from data supplied by the actuators), the processor can perform sub-pixel interpolation (almost mentioned is one phrase in the article), which produces a physically higher resolution image. This is because each camera pixel samples a little bit of the neighbouring...
'The official blog of Samsung Electronics has revealed the design inspiration for its latest Galaxy S5 phone, which says involved extensive research into "iPhone and iOS," a technology currently showing as a preference for young, savvy customers.'   There, fixed that typo for Scamsung.
 The problem with this device will not be in what it can do but in what it cannot. Limited capability will doubtless result in false readings, failure to analyse and a lot of food rejected at the table in restaurants. Havoc might well ensue lol. Mass spectrometry has been described the ultimate analytical tool for the technique's ability to discern substances down to not just the atomic level but to the level of distinguishing isotopes of single elements. This is the...
Okay, I like this. From memory, physical focussing permits a faster lens, that is, one that has a larger aperture and collects more light. This is because a larger aperture reduces the available depth of field (not sure about depth of focus) and would cause problems for a fixed lens camera. The advantage of course, is more light being presented to the imaging system and better exposure control. Being a MEMs system, it should outlive the phone. :-)
 Very nice, I must try that sometime. :-)
 Do you know what OS the Xiaomi Mi3 employs? Why is it with these tech writers that Apple (only) should be afraid? (I'm sure there is a reason, there always is.)
 Don't understand your post, sorry. Is SpaceX reinventing or duplicating? Well, the aren't reinventing because of course, Elon Musk is fully aware of precedents. Neither are they copying because there is novelty to SpaceX's designs that take advantage of modern knowledge, computing power, materials and engineering practices. The entire business model of SpaceX is built on vastly lower costs to orbit. According to Musk, they can now do it more cheaply than the Chinese....
 Interesting that you mention IT specifically. I feel that Apple has moved forward with faltering steps, except in respect of overt hardware design, which continually and successfully pushes the envelope. However, comparing Elon Musk's companies with Apple is perhaps mainly illuminating of the differences between them that result from circumstance rather than design. Apple is a long established business in very competitive markets that has everything to lose, whereas...
R&D doesn't just develop products, it develops people. Woz and to some degree, Jobs, got their start in part with the aid of a once great R&D institution, Hewlett Packard. Can't imagine the boost to the human capital that R&D spending by companies like Apple has provided. Go Apple, (and Tesla, SpaceX and the others... well, some of the others lol). 
 Facebook will decide what happens to the data and users will decide what they are prepared to believe.
