5g grounding planes5G wireless is the latest, cutting-edge standard of technology that is set to reshape the future of telecommunications and computing as we know it today. It will be at least 10 to 100 times faster than 4G/LTE, which is already in use.

This revolutionary leap forward in technology will enable new and exciting features and services, with a much wider applicability than previous standards.

With that said, in this week’s tech recap, we look at 5G grounding planes, Google Play Games comes to Windows, Advanced driver assistance tech in cars and the latest Tech Role.

5G is Grounding Planes:

The journey to 5G is having a turbulent take-off in the US.

The rollout of the wireless service has been partially postponed due to fears that it poses a threat to aircraft safety.

International airlines including Emirates, British Airways, and Air India cancelled flights to the US on Wednesday over concerns about interference from 5G towers.

Telecom’s giants Verizon and AT&T have agreed to restrict the rollout near key airports, but this hasn’t allayed the anger of the aviation industry.

What’s causing the problem?

Google Play Games comes to Windows, but only in a handful of countries:

Google Play Games, a PC app that lets you play Android games on a Windows PC, has finally launched – but there’s a catch.

The app is only available as a beta, and only in three countries: Hong Kong, South Korea and Taiwan. If you visit the Google Play Games site from any other country, you’ll get a “beta isn’t available in your region yet” message.

Advanced driver assistance tech in cars today won’t pass IIHS’ new safety rating:

Thinking of investing in a high-tech driven driver assistance car soon? You might want to pause on that for a bit.

Not a single advanced driver assistance system offered in today’s new vehicles would meet pending safety criteria being developed by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, according to the organization.

The non-profit that is funded by auto insurance companies said Thursday that its new rating program will evaluate the safeguards that vehicles with “partial automation” use to help drivers stay focused on the road.
