06:05 EDTBCSBarclays extends cheque imaging to Android users
Barclays announced the extension of its pioneering mobile cheque imaging service to nearly a million more customers, including 500,000 customers with android phones. In another UK first, the service is also now being made available to iPad users. Since the launch of cheque imaging a year ago, nearly three quarters of a million pounds have been deposited by the 30,000 Barclays customers signed up to the mobile cheque imaging tool on their iPhones. The latest roll-out will see this number rise yet higher as more customers are able to benefit from the speed and ease of this time-saving technology. Mobile cheque imaging is available through the Barclays Mobile Banking app and allows customers to pay in a Barclays cheque of up to £500 within minutes of receiving it. Customers simply need to take a photo of the cheque then complete a few quick steps before the funds are immediately available in their current account. Reference Link

07:08 EDTFBGoogle apps take up nearly as much user time as Facebook’s apps, WSJ says
A study released by Forrester Research suggests that U.S. smartphone users in late 2014 spent roughly 12% of their time in Google (GOOG) apps, just below the 13% spent on Facebook (FB) apps, the Wall Street Journal reports. The time spent on Google apps is likely to be “much higher” since respondents were only asked to list apps they downloaded and the time spent on them, excluding apps pre-loaded on certain Google phones, the report says. The same is true of Apple’s (AAPL) apps, amounting to 3% of users time, the report says. Reference Link

Earlier on Tuesday, Semiconductor Manufacturing International (SMI), Huawei, imec, and Qualcomm Global Trading -- an affiliate of Qualcomm (QCOM) -- announced the formation of SMIC Advanced Technology Research & Development, an equity joint venture company. The joint venture company will focus on R&D towards next generation CMOS logic technology and an advanced integrated circuit development R&D platform. SMIC Advanced Technology R&D will be majority owned by SMIC, while Huawei, imec, and Qualcomm will be minority shareholders. "By enabling fabless semiconductor companies to join the development process as shareholders, the product development cycle can be shortened and the advanced process node tape out time can be accelerated," said the statement. In the first phase, the joint venture will develop 14 nanometer CMOS technology for mass production, which will be based on imec's expertise. The project will be done at SMIC's production line. SMIC will have the rights to license the required intellectual property rights on the mass production technologies of advanced nodes developed by the joint venture company.

09:51 EDTFBFacebook near test of life high, levels to watch
The stock has been trading in a range largely defined by a low at $77 and a high at $85 since February of this year. That is a slightly more bullish range than the previous several months characterized by a low at $75 and a high at $82. The life high for the shares is at $86.07, with the stock breaking the range high and last at $85.65. This move could be another oscillation in the range, or it might presage a genuine breakout in price. With the range having built for so long a period, a breakout could see a more rapid increase in price with a probe to the $90 to $95 area quite possible. A move back below $85 would mean this was another excursion testing the bounds of the range, with next support below at $82.
