Tuesday, July 15, 2014 | 0 comments

After updating the support page for developers, the new information entered by Apple offer new details on the adoption of its firmware in the mobile arena. According to these data, 90% of devices compatible with operating systems from Apple, are updated to iOS 7.




A minimal but important increase compared to two months ago, where the percentages reported 87% adoption. During the last quarterly earnings call, Apple pointed out that iOS 7 was the operating system most popular in the world, now the sales data together with those of adoption terminals enabled really seem to agree with the Californian company.


In recent months, expectations are focused on the next update to iOS 8 distribution currently stops at the third beta and the final version expected in September.

New version of Apple releases OS X 10.9.4 build 13E19 with good features

Friday, June 20, 2014 | 0 comments

New version of OS X 10.9.4 released by Apple in the last few hours, this is the build 13E19, which comes about a month after the public release of OS X 10.9.3, which has implemented important features such as better support the 4K display and more.


This new build is as always only available to registered developers at the website Dev Center, does not seem to be still present in the program is open to the public, called "Apple Seed". The elements on which to place greater attention are always the same, with the addition of other focus required by Apple: graphics drivers, audio, Safari, Bluetooth, as well as the Finder and the Mac App Store. Is not currently clear what the improvements that the final version of OS X 10.9.4 will bring to the public, but it should be the last major release.

WWDC 2014 OS X 10:10 the center of attention at the expense of iOS 8?

Friday, May 2, 2014 | 0 comments

As reported by 9to5Mac citing sources familiar with the facts very close to Apple, the next WWDC 2014 in San Francisco scheduled June 2 to 6, 2014, could focus more attention on upgrading to OS X Deployment 10.10 rather than iOS 8. This does not mean that the update of the operating system the mobile is not in the plans of Apple, but the biggest news will be visible to the desktop platform.

Always remember that rumor even if it is from an authoritative source, it is rumored that OS X 10:10 will feature a major redesign in terms of graphics, not dissimilar to the one that occurred with the mobile operating system to iOS in step 7. Apple seems firmly intends to promote in the first place to the next developer release, so time to hit the target has allocated human resources in the OS X team, taking them from those working on iOS, a move implemented to be able to finish the work in time for WWDC , 2014.

10:10 It is said that OS X will enjoy a design much more similar to that of iOS 7, with sharper corners of the windows, icons, more defined look more minimal and flat, but without changes confusing about the key features that users are loyal and accustomed. Finder management of multitasking and all the other classic features will be present, with a convergence version iOS 7 which seems to be purely cosmetic. Apple aims to release of OS X 10:10 later this year and is planning a series of upgrades hardware aimed at the promotion of the new software.

It is often spoken of a code name used internally to define the operating system, known as "Syrah", but the final commercial nomenclature should theoretically call a place in California, according to new started by Apple with the Mavericks. Between the main suspects, OS X Yosemite, in homage to the famous national park, a name which appears the most likely candidates. As we reported days ago, thanks to the use of shell companies Apple may have acquired, and other protected names relating to places of interest in California, such as Mammoth and Diablo.


As for iOS 8, many features in the works could not take immediate life, there are many ongoing projects reported in recent months and may be particularly functional.

The list includes the new app Healthbook , who will be born to aggregate statistics fitness and health data from third-party applications, external devices such as iWatch, or data collected by the iPhone. As for maps, Apple may introduce new features related to local transport with support for directions, is also rumored the creation of a stand-alone app for iTunes Radio, as well as the introduction of TextEdit and Preview on iOS too.

While until now it was thought that all could see a new introduction in iOS 8, now it is assumed that some of them may come with the next update to iOS 8.1, which Apple would already be at work.

As was the case last year, as the feature 'iOS Car "was mentioned in the preview during the presentation of iOS 7 and introduced in iOS 7.1 with the nomenclature" Carplay ", it is likely that many features of iOS 8 can get to the rear with the 'update to iOS 8.1.

Among these would fit the new partnership with Shazam for identifying multimedia content in Siri, and upgrading a wide cross-platform iCloud, with an eye version simplicity and efficiency of cloud-based applications developed in the future.


Also according to the rumors, iOS, 8 might be able to take advantage of the new generation of processors A8, emphasizing the duty to move to 64-bit architectures for the purpose of improving the overall efficiency and overall performance, critical factors into account increase of the now established dimensional displays and resolution in the next iPhone.

In this regard, internal voices from Apple employees, talk about a feature dubbed "Multi-resolution”, designed to improve the performance of iOS applications and integrated operating system, running on more than one type of display. An element that suggests the next iPhone models with different resolutions.

We also know that between the expectations towards new devices, set-top box Apple TV is indicated as the next update, but it is rumored that the new version of the software is working alongside iOS 8.1, and therefore the new hardware might screw arrive the market towards year-end and not before.


So there is no exact month, but as you can see there are many advances on the contents of the next conference WWDC 2014. As always, we will update you with further news.

Google Nexus 5 for all but not for LG, which he wanted to, call Nexus G [Inquisitiveness]

Saturday, November 16, 2013 | 0 comments

Although we have learned to identify the latest products in the Nexus range through a number, it must be remembered also that in the past Nexus S and Galaxy Nexus (both made ​​by Samsung) have been an exception, containing a reference to the line of smartphones Korean manufacturer: first with the letter S and then with the use of the Galaxy brand.
LG-Google-Nexus-G-003

Starting from this premise are interesting rumors on the current Nexus 5, who also wanted to sell LG as the Google Nexus G, clearly inspired by the line device of the Korean manufacturer, after the renewal of the brand and the introduction of the letter G on all the latest products (LG G2, LG G Pad).


Google would obviously rejected the idea, and one of the most plausible reasons, there might just be the marketing of the Motorola Moto G version of Google Edition, too similar in name to the hypothetical Nexus G.

Project Ara - The Building Block Smartphone

Monday, November 4, 2013 | 0 comments

Dave Hakkens was the brilliant mind behind what many are calling ‘the lego phone’. Dave came up with the idea when a single component in his favourite camera was damaged and he was advised that it would be cheaper and easier to just buy a new camera than it would be to buy the single component and replace it. He wanted to create a device where this would no longer be the case, where buying and replacing damaged or less desirable components became so easy that your grandmother could do it.
Project Ara - The Building Block Smartphone

The concept was called Phonebloks. When Dave first announced the idea he set up a website, a prototype and a plan – he wanted to find 500 supporters of the idea, but by the 29th of October had more than 381,000,000 supporters. The project was of course seen as valuable with so many people willing to get behind it, now it is no surprise that Motorola, one of the Google owned mobile phone production companies, has taken up the project with the full intention of producing the modular phone, which will be called Ara.

So – how come Motorola can just take this fantastic idea and make a phone? There are a surprising number of people looking at the Project Ara news and thinking ‘that looks just like phonebloks’; that would be because it is. Ara is not a similar idea, it’s the same idea, using the same concept, plans and designer. Yes; Phonbloks’ Dave Hakkens has teamed up with Motorola to product this fantastic device, with one simple goal in mind – to make a phone that will last a lifetime. There are many people who would consider this impossible, but the amazing fact of the matter is that technology is now ready to produce this and Dave Hakkens has made it possible with his simple but revolutionary idea.

The problem with technology at current is that it becomes outdated; new versions are released and when something more suitable for you comes along or your needs increase your old device just doesn’t hack it any more. Five years ago the phone you had was probably one you had owned for three years, at least, it may have been repaired a few times, some bigger memory cards and a new battery perhaps but it had been the singular device on which you had relied for quite some time. Today things are a little different; the average phone lasts 10 months before being replaced. Either because it was damaged (and replacing it was just easier than repairing it) or because something better came along.

With the Ara this wouldn’t be considered as great a problem; first of all Motorola would not be producing the phone itself, but rather the components for it. Cameras, batteries, clocks, storage, connectivity units; everything would be available separately and in multiple variations (such as bigger or smaller units to suit your individual needs). You build the phone yourself to include everything that you want it to and exclude the components that don’t matter to you, you select the components to be the size and capacity you need them to be and you worry only about the factors that actually matter to you individually. Each part, including the screen might I add, can be removed, upgraded and replaced later as new components are released and the technology itself improves, while you maintain the same device and other components.

Essentially this is evolutionary technology; you help it to evolve and change to meet your own needs and in turn the device will grow and adapt while still being the same device. The mass production of individual parts means that finding and purchasing a replacement part need never be a difficult or hugely costly task and is demonstrated as being very simple. Personally, after the disappointments that have come from some of the recent iOS updates, I am looking forward to seeing this highly flexible and adaptable smartphone, which is likely to be seen running Android when it is released though this has not been directly confirmed it has been said that the phone will “do for hardware what the Android platform has done for software”. 


Kate Critchlow has a keen interest in technology, in particular technology news such as Motorola’s Project Ara.

Tim Cook "iPhone 5C has never been thought of as entry level smartphones"

Wednesday, October 30, 2013 | 0 comments

Many of the topics discussed during the recent "Earning call" on the financial results of Apple, so among the curiosities are some comments from Tim Cook on the new iPhone 5C, telephone initially expected by many as a response to the mid-level on the market.
iphone-5c-great-mid-level-smartphone

Cook once again proving that he had never thought about the realization of the iPhone 5C as a device designed for the midrange. Responding to an analyst, Cook claimed that iPhone 5C was thought of as intermediate device between iPhone 4S and iPhone 5S, leaving the entry-level to 4S, the intent is obviously to grow sales of all three devices.
iPhone-5c-Colors-Original-Cases


Many users continue to see iPhone 5C as a low-end device Mancat either, and certainly the media have played a role in the creation of this thinking, of course, the evaluation of such a move by Apple, it is still to be determined. Although 5C iPhone has sold just now, it seems that total sales of devices can give some reason to Cook; we'll see what news will bring the next quarterly results.

Google is preparing a renewal of hardware for the current version of Glass

| 0 comments

The current version of the Google Glass known to date will be improved in the hardware specifications before arrival in the sales channels. This is confirmed by the development team through its Google+ page, as well as announcing the new version will soon be available for all participants in the Explorer program.
Google Glass New Hardware

The restyling of the hypothetical Google Glass 2.0 will adopt lighter lines, will be included support for prescription lenses and finally mount an ear-bud with mono audio output to improve the output audio in noisy environments (one of the major flaws of the current version).


No mention unfortunately regarding the battery life but at least in the coming weeks the program Glass Explorer allow you to invite up to 3 friends thus extending the tests and user feedback in order to obtain an even better product before the official launch.

In the future Google Glass could support the hand gestures

Friday, October 18, 2013 | 0 comments

A to talk once again of Google Glass, wearable computing and related technologies today is a Google patent on a feature for the detection of hand gestures through camera. From here you imagine this technology as a new way to communicate with Glass is a short step, though things might be a bit 'more complicated than that.

Google-Glass-in-Future-Support-hand-gestures-002

The software to identify gestures should be based on the same principle of any recognition software, video, and therefore be able to distinguish at least the 'forms' predetermined. The example of the heart shown in the patent makes the idea and might suggest an input that refers for example to a like on a social network. That this may derive from a real recognition of gestures is a desirable development, but difficult to see that in the short term.
Google-Glass-in-Future-Support-hand-gestures-Google-Patent-003


The patent in question was originally filed in June 2011, and considering the character assumed by the Google Glass seems unlikely now entering a new mode of input beyond voice input, swipe bar and head movements. On the other hand, assuming a redesign of the device in view of its actual commercial launch, the final version of the Glass may differ significantly from the one dedicated to the Explorers program. Unless immediate future, however, there is certainly to be expected that the wearable computing will evolve in this direction and that the hand gestures soon become part of the user interface-terminus.

Microsoft Office 365 will land on iOS iPad only after the touch version for Windows 8

| 0 comments

We have seen how a few months ago, precisely in June, Microsoft has released in the App Store a very limited version of Office 365 for the iPhone, but nothing optimized for iPad has been seen until now. During an event in Florida, Gartner, Microsoft CEO, Steve Ballmer said that a specific version for the Apple tablet is currently in the works.
Online Office on iOS iPad after Windows 8

Going down into the specifics of what was said, Ballmer has warned that his company will not release an iPad version before finishing the suite Office for Windows 8 Touch .

It is basically reiterated what was said by the head of the team applications and services, Qi Lu, long ago, namely that the touch versions of the Office suite are under construction, for both Windows and for all major platforms touch.


If the approach had to be maintained with the iPhone version, Office 365 will not be a true and complete productivity suite, as a companion to combine the use of the master suite on the PC, resulting in line with Microsoft's approach in theme applications when it comes to competing devices, just remember Outlook app, where the version of the client for iOS leaves much to be desired resulting incomplete at best and usable only in the presence of subscription to Office 365.

HTC One Max New Rumor-001

More interesting images are then those that illustrate the fingerprint scanner,  which will be positioned, according to the numerous rumor concerning him, in the rear of the shell. The image that arouses most interest is the one that follows, considering that seems to suggest the possibility of activating different functions depending on the finger used:
HTC One Max New Rumor-002

One could assume, for example, that functions as unlocking the device, authentication (such as password replacement tool insertion) and the launch of applications can be assigned to each finger. Speculation, for the moment, waiting for the curtain to raise permanently on HTC One max. Following further illustrative images that relate to the fingerprint scanner:

Scanner of HTC One Max New Rumor-003

The intensification of rumors about HTC One Max is certainly a good thing, considering that is helping to change the focus on HTC products at a particularly difficult for the Taiwanese company. HTC One max is undoubtedly one of the terminals that it takes to give a new boost to sales of HTC in the year. The official launch is expected next week.

The Apple A7 chip 64-bit is a marketing gimmick, Qualcomm attack

Wednesday, October 2, 2013 | 0 comments

Qualcomm is second to none and openly discusses the new Apple chip A7 by the senior vice president  Anand Chandrasekher , polemical tone and direct all the attention going to attack the media which concentrated in the last few weeks using a 64-bit chip. The processor used in the iPhone 5S, top of the range of the house of Cupertino, has been defined as a 'marketing gimmick' than a real technical revolution on the part of the executive Qualcomm, with no real benefit for users at this stage :

apple-a7-chip-64bit-vs-Qualcomm-002

We know, because there is so much hype around Apple did with its A7 (64-bit). I think they're doing a marketing operation . There is no benefit that users can draw directly . Due to the chip 64 bit it is possible to handle even more memory but the iPhone 5s only has 1GB of RAM . Basically you would need at least 4GB of memory, so, not if he has no need for the performance, and the type of applications that take advantage of this hardware are usually relegated to the class of server.

Apple wanted to be first to market with a 64-bit chip, anticipating all the chipmaker and other competing hardware platforms, but what are the real advantages present considered to be the rest of the hardware and the software that controls it? While waiting for Cupertino reveal the real advantages today s' strong criticism of Qualcomm, for its part, announced for the near future 64-bit chips, but not before they become really necessary and can be really usable. The executive Qualcomm then concluded:

Will only be meaningful by improving efficiency, in particular the operating systems they feel the need (64 bit) at some point.
