Orange to juice 4G LTE in Europe

By 2015, the mobile operator says, it will have extended 4G LTE networks across all of its EU markets. It also wouldn't mind some government support.

Orange has promised that within three years, it will deliver "ultra-fast" 4G LTE data services in the U.K. and the nine other European Union countries in which it operates.

The mobile operator made the pledge at a meeting with the European Commission in Brussels yesterday, where it made 10 commitments designed to help the EU fulfill its Digital Agenda goals. However, it also stressed the authorities have a part to play in creating an environment in which implementing new technologies is viable.

"[Orange will] roll out 4G/LTE networks in all Orange European Union markets by 2015. We welcome the EU decision to make more spectrum available, in a timely and harmonised manner, to wireless services in the EU, and look forward to further, similar initiatives to help us cope with the massive growth in public data use," the company said in its announcement.

Details about Apple's 'spaceship' campus from the drone pilot who flies over it

MyithZ has one of the most popular aerial photography channels on YouTube. With the exception of revealing his identity, he is an open book as he shares with CNET's Brian Tong the drone hardware he uses to capture flyover shots of the construction of Apple's new campus, which looks remarkably like an alien craft.
