It’s another post about a wearable device that would track your fitness and keep a watch at your calorie count. So what’s new about this new device?!!

It is the maker of this device and the platform on which this device has been built makes it more special and unique. The maker of this fitness tracker is the software giant, Microsoft. The company named this device to be Band.

The Band is packed with sensors which is understated to provide both solid fitness tracking and limited smart watch functionality. Though it appears that Microsoft has entered this segment it looks to be a good option whether you’re a Windows Phone user or not.

Talking technical, the Microsoft Band looks similar to that of others like the Samsung’s Gear Fit with the 1.4 inch , 320×106 display . The device is powered by 100 mAh batteries. The company promises that it will be completely charged in less than an hour and a half. Once completely charged the Band will be up and running for 48 hours as reported.

The device can track steps, distance travelled, calories burned as well as duration and quality sleep. It does so many functions with the help of 10 sensors on-board including built-in GPS. One most interesting of the features is the UV index display helping the user decide whether they need to apply sunscreen.

It connects to the Windows phone 8.1 handsets, as well as those running iOS 7.1 and later, or Android 4.3/4.4 through Bluetooth. Once established this link it will show email previews,calendar alerts, incoming calls and real-time weather notifications.It is available in three sizes for US$200 online and in Microsoft stores starting today.

Lenovo Acquires Motorola Mobility from Google http://gizmorati.com/2014/10/31/lenovo-acquires-motorola-mobility-google/ http://gizmorati.com/2014/10/31/lenovo-acquires-motorola-mobility-google/#comments Fri, 31 Oct 2014 08:31:15 +0000 http://gizmorati.com/?p=16274

It has been the year of big deals so far among the leading companies. The recent addition is Google selling Motorola Mobility to Lenovo, giving the Chinese smartphone manufacturer a major presence in the US market. Google has signed an agreement to sell Motorola to Lenovo for $2.91 billion in the mixture of cash and stocks. At the deal’s closing , Lenovo will pay Google $660 million in cash and $750 million in stock, while the remaining $1.5 billion will be paid out over three years.

While Google still retains the majority of Motorola’s patents. Lenovo will get around 2,000 patents of Motorola and a license on the remaining patents. The belief at the both ends of the deal about the opposite company is appreciative.

Google CEO Larry Page said “Lenovo has the expertise and track record to scale Motorola Mobility into a major within the Android ecosystem”. He also added “t this move will enable Google to devote our energy to driving innovation across the Android ecosystem, for the benefit of smartphone users everywhere”

Google with its interest in Motorola’s patent portfolio has bought the Motorola Mobility for $12.5 billion back in 2012. Since the acquisition Google has been losing hundreds of millions each quarter. The patents haven’t been as helpful as Google initially hoped and the entire ownership of Motorola has been something of a headache for Google, and finally the internet giant takes steps to cut its loses.

On the other hand it is a good news for Lenovo, which has intended to expand its reach in US smartphone market this year although it hasn’t made much headway with that until now. Although it made a bid for Blackberry late in 2013, this Motorola acquisition will place the company in a much stronger place.

Let’s wait up, to see what Lenovo has planned with this acquisition. This is the second acquisition  the company has announced recently.

This Vinge Train Station in Denmark is Mind-blowing http://gizmorati.com/2014/10/30/vinge-train-station-denmark-mind-blowing/ http://gizmorati.com/2014/10/30/vinge-train-station-denmark-mind-blowing/#comments Thu, 30 Oct 2014 14:37:14 +0000 http://gizmorati.com/?p=16258

Henning Larsen Architects and an international team consisting of Tredje Natur, MOE and Railway Procurement Agency created a mind-blowing S train station in Vinge near Copenhagen, Denmark.

By 2033, the Frederikssund Municipality hopes that it’ll be a full-fledged town. The 350 hectares of land will be home to an estimate 20,000 residents, many of whom will likely use Vinge’s train station to commute to and from Denmark’s larger cities. The train station will connect the new city with neighbouring regional areas, as well as Copenhagen, and is expected to be built by 2017 ahead of the city’s completion in 2033.

The basic idea of Vinge is to create a city where nature is not an addition to the town, but an integrated part of the city. Buildings of varying heights situated along the tracks are intended to integrate the station into the larger city infrastructure.

“The proposal best connects the train station, nature and town structure as one united whole,” lauded the selection committee regarding Henning Larsen’s winning scheme.

The aim of the station is, of course, to facilitate the easy coming-and-going of those moving in and out of the city. Situated in the center of Vinge, it has also been designed with the aim of pulling the city together and allowing for the easy movement of people within the city.

As passengers step out onto the platform they’ll see an opening framed by an elliptical-shaped concrete structure. This piece of concrete functions as a pathway, bridging the two opposite sides of the platform and preventing the “wrong side of the tracks” mentality that’s often the result of separating neighborhoods with infrastructure.

Clione Mini USB speaker lamp is an attractive and innovative speaker and lamp. People usually love the attractive gadgets and most fond of attractive accessories. Under this category, we have Clione mini USB speaker which looks like a beaker and you would expect fluids to flow out of it rather than music. The glowing aspect is not so new but it thrills you when you see it to be touch sensitive .Touch the ring and you can scroll through the brightness of lamp, right from ice blue to snow white.

When coming to power, USB or 3 AAA batteries will suffice the power needs.

It runs only for about 2 hrs on full charge and light goes for 4-8 hrs maximum.it has a 3.5mm port and runs almost everything you throw at it.The touch sensitive lamp helps you turn it on and off with single touch. Considering its battery backup ,you cannot consider this as a portable gadget.

clione-led-lamp-speaker-1

Finally, if you are sitting in a pleasant and calm place to listen to the music in a dark area, you could opt this to uplift your mood and gain some piece of mind. Given all the gimmicks, it price tag still doesn’t seem to be correct. It comes at 61 USD which clearly is a huge amount for a Touch sensitive Bluetooth speaker cum lamp. It would have been better if it reads a memory card and had a better battery life.

clione3

Though idea and concept is quite creative, it surely needs to be polished and upgrades can suffice the price with which it is tagged.

What all updates will you make in this device, if you are gonna design such thing?

Are you a selfie freak? Then this phone is just made for you. The Chinese smart phone manufacturer Oppo recently revealed its Oppo N3 with motorized swivelling camera. It also have some exciting features in hardware domain. The hybrid fingerprint scanner and hollow notification light bar makes the device stand out of crowd making it  one among few devices with such functionalities. The N3 is accompanied with mini remote, which helps you snap your photos remotely and also swivel the camera for video recording and panorama. These features seem exciting but let us have a peek into specs to know whether this device is really worth buying this season.

Design:

The 5.5 in screen N3 looks big and quite comfortable in hand giving you a good feel of a premium mobile. It measures 161.2x77x9.9 mm and weighs around 192 g.

Thanks to the aluminium casing on its outer edge which makes Oppo stylish smart phone. LED notification bar on the bottom of device which can be seen no matter what angle you are holding your device(probably similar to the Xperia SP).There is an Hybrid fingerprint scanner on rear of device which can be used for both the transactions and lock your apps. I wonder why Oppo has put this on rear rather than front.

Screen:

The 5.5 inch IPS display seems to be pretty sharp and produces consistent colors. The viewing angles are acceptable. The 1080×1920 pixel screen with 403 ppi resolution doesn’t stand extraordinary considering its price but it does its job quite well and protected by Cornilla glass 3.

 

Speed and Power:

It runs on Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor which is good enough for the heavy applications and multitasking. Clocked at 2.3 GHz Krait CPU and Graphic unit of Adreno 330 and 2GB RAM ,it should serve the gaming needs for an average user ,but you cannot expect high end games to run on the device with ultimate full scale graphics. The device comes with in-built 32GB memory and has a provision of expanding memory up to 128GB.

Camera:

When comes to camera, this Selfie device comes with 16MP Schneider certified camera which gives you pictures of 3456×4608 pixels that are good. All you need to talk about is motorized rotating lens and O-click remote control. This is all you need if you are always “selfi”tized. Oppo helps you shoot 2160p @30fps and 1080p@60fps promising the decent video quality.’

Others:

N3 runs on Android 4.4.2 Kit Kat and hopefully will receive lollipop update once it is released .Powered by 3000 mAh battery , we predict that it has a OK OK battery life which should suffice daily needs. When we see the connectivity options, it has 4G ,Wi-Fi ,Dual Sim ,Bluetooth 4.0 and NFC.

The Oppo N3 will be available this December for $650 off-contract.

Summary:

Oppo N3 is definitely made for selfiee obsessed users but the price tag $650 keeps customers away a growing company like Oppo where you can get much better mobiles under this price range. However, if you are “The selfie obsessed Guy”, go out there try this on ,who know you might get surprised.

Verizon in association with Motorola have announced Droid Turbo featuring industry best intense specs. Fans call it all-in superphone in the Droid line from the company. Both the companies have always had a close relationship. This new release of Droid will help both of them to penetrate more into the market.

Motorola has been a hit with its Moto E, Moto G with minimal prices and huge specs covered. It’s flagship phone has been Moto X. It is considered to be one of the best and finest android mobiles but Droid Turbo outshines it in every way possible. The Turbo has the same shape and size, with a woven nylon back and prominent Verizon branding.

Talking about the specs, the Droid Turbo is packed with one of the most powerful processor, Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor running at 2.7GHz. It has a 5.2 inch screen with a resolution of 2560*1440 AMOLED screen at 565 ppi. That is the best package of having the powerful  processor and densest screen till date. This outruns the likes of LG G3 and Samsung Galaxy Note 4.

The phone is backed up by far the most powerful  and huge 3900mAh battery. This makes the phone a bit thicker than some of its competitors.11.2mm at its thickest point. For its specs this shouldn’t an issue . The company duo promises a 48 hours of ‘mixed usage’ although still this promise has to be reviewed by experts.

Added to these amazing specs there comes the humongous 21-megapixel main camera that can record 4k video and a 2-megapixel front camera. Though the front camera is quite disappointing I think the 21 MP main camera will compensate for that. With 3GB RAM and variants of 32GB and 64GB internal memory the mobile has enough space for storage.

The mobile comes with Gorilla Glass and software package of Android 4.4.4 but has a guaranteed update of lollipop. The 32GB Droid Turbo will cost $199.99 with contract and the 64GB model will cost $249.99, both available starting Oct. 30.

Do you think Apple 6 is overpriced? Then it’s time for you to look at this, A working model of Apple 1 computer has been sold at auction for a price of $905,000, which breaks the record of highest paid Apple 1 which was sold in Germany last year.

Out of the 200 Apple 1 computers only 64 are known to exist as of now and of them there are only 15 pieces which are in working condition, this piece is one among those 15 which sold at this huge price. Back when Apple started in 1976, Steve Wozniak built this device in Steve Jobs family residence.

Bonham, the auction house expected to fetch around $300,000 for this device but the $905,000 figure is most impressive and exceeding the expectations for this epic device with greater historic importance.

Henry ford organization bought this Apple 1 for the unbelievable amount and plans to display it in the museum.

“Steve Wozniak and Steve Jobs put technology directly in the hands of the people with the creation of the Apple 1, completely altering the way we work and live,” said Patricia Mooradian, President of the organization.

The device is nothing but a only motherboard, though it came with the famous wooden keyboard including manual with details of operating instructions and an cassette interface .Sanyo monitor and power supply completes the package

As there are only few of these kind, they often get sold at high prices as we see that

Apple 1 was sold at $671,000 at an auction in Germany last year, which narrowly beat the previous record of $640,000.

A historic piece of treasure is definitely worth such huge amount which will be remembered in the course of human timeline.  download (5)

The simple act of watering your lawn is not always so easy. Keeping your yard beautiful should not be a headache. Your home should be a place of enjoyment and relaxation for friends and family. Your life can be very demanding of your time and the last thing you should be stressing about is your yard’s health. Water is essential to lawns. But too much or too little can harm them. Running the sprinkler all night wastes a precious resource and sets up the right conditions for disease. Frequent, light watering sets your lawn up for trouble in hot weather. If you find watering your lawn is troublesome, here is a new app to make your task easier.

The new app, Rachio Iro, aims to greatly simplify things by allowing you to set up and tweak complex lawn irrigation schemes. Rachio Iro simplifies the process of sprinkling your lawn and it reduces wasteful watering practices. This smart Wi-fi enabled irrigation controller will cost you $250 (15,333). Rachio offers apps for iPhone and Android and there is a beta for a web app. The app lets you screw through the unit itself directly into the wall, which saves you the trouble of matching up screw holes. The app uses a pairing technology called BlinkUp. The Iro also checks weather reports and during a rainy day, sprinkling is postponed automatically. All the apps offer charts to break down your water usage by hours or minutes, gallons and cubic feet.

It’s a great way to monitor how much watering you have been doing. The app also shares additional insights about watering, including data from other Rachio users, in your area who are sharing their reports.

Not so cheap Samsung Galaxy Note 4, the latest phablet released by innovation specialist Samsung swipes out the dollars right away from your pockets but does it really deserve the rob? The phablet equips a new QuadHD display which gives a resolution of ‘2K’, leading Snapdragon 805 processor and new metallic frame as of Xiaomi’s MI4.

Samsung-Galaxy-Note-4

Design:

The size is the obvious parameter which needs to be discussed under the category of phablet.This phablet has 153.5*78.6*8.5 mm dimensions and is a little bit lighter than its descendant.It weighs around 176 g and feels lighter and comfortable to handle. Coming out of its comfort zone ,Note 4 comes with the metallic encasing around the device which ensures better durability.

Screen:

The Quad HD Super AMOLED screen of this device is pretty much impressive than any other around. With a mind boggling resolution of 2560X1440 resolution constituting 515ppi, this display never fails to impress anyone. It has multi touch up to 10 fingers and comes with cornilla gorilla glass 3.The Samsung multi window feature is definitely justified with this device. The bright colors and viewing angles are excellent which are basic to expect from a Super AMOLED screen.

Camera:

Featuring an 16 MP camera Samsung keeps the Note 4 in race but the innovation doesn’t lie only in the meaning less megapixel superiority but also the f stop ,which is now  at f1.9 that means it allows the light almost  62% more than its descendant. The images are in 5312×2988 pixels resolution and shoots videos of 2160p@ 30fps.It has a new feature when used with S pen called snap note which is quite interesting that will be covered in later articles. The 3.7 MP front facing camera helps to capture some impressive pictures @ 1440p.

Speed and power:

This device is powered with beast processor, The Snapdragon 805,which is best in class processor till now. The  Adreno 420 GPU suffices the gaming needs quite well. The 3 GB RAM performs greatly and suffices the heavy multi-tasking needs of a professional and an average user.

Others:

Note 4 comes with Android 4.4.4 Kit Kat and hopefully gets the lollipop upgrade. It is available in 32 GB variant and also supports expandable memory up to 128 GB. The S pen is quite good unlike its previous devices and also has Fingerprint sensor which is PayPal certified. The Dual band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, Infrared port and 4G nevertheless must for the gadget. It runs on a 3220 mAh battery and can give a stand by for one complete day.

Summary:

The innovative, smart, overwhelming gadget comes at a whooping price of $700 in US and 750 Euros in UK. In terms of technology and innovation, Samsung Note 4 is way up ahead of Apple’s IPhone, But Is it really worth your buck?? You decide .Keep me posted!

Google’s latest Nexus smartphone – The Nexus 6, is a beast in the specifications and a definite flagship killer in performance. One of the major attractive aspects of its last two predecessors was how affordable they were, even with high specifications for the market. With the Nexus 6 running on latest android 5.0 lollipop and its overwhelming specifications Google pushed the high end mobile to top end mobile resulting in the price hike of 300$ than its descendant .Now it’s up to you to decide whether this flagship device worth the buy ? .

Design

The Nexus 6 is huge. It measures around 159.3*83*10.1 and weighs around 184 g which is quite large and heavy for a normal pocket .Though the mobile is plastic built, the metal band around its edges gives it a stylish look and feels good in hand. After Sony coming up with dust and water proofing, Google made Nexus 6 is expected to have water proof but that’s not in the basket for this time. Overall this Nexus 6 is almost like an elongated Moto x .

This is available in both the Nexus premium colors, black and white

nexus-6-lolly

Screen

The 5.96” screen with a display of 2560*1440 with resolution 493ppi AMOLED screen is impressive .The large screen give rich colors and higher contrast and great viewing angles. It is as good that you wouldn’t find a pixel even after keeping it nearer to eye but the drawback here is that it cannot be operated using single hand given its size constraint.

Speed and Power

It runs on powerful Snapdragon 805 32-bit processor clocked at 2.7 Ghz . Though cannot be compared with apple’s a8 beast but it does its job well.3GB RAM is already expected as the One plus One and galaxy note 3 are already in market with 3GB RAM. It does support 4g network on all available bands for now. This top end Nexus should remain a capable performer for coming few years for now.

Audi Sets a New Milestone in History with Self Driving Car http://gizmorati.com/2014/10/28/audi-sets-new-milestone-history-self-driving-car/ http://gizmorati.com/2014/10/28/audi-sets-new-milestone-history-self-driving-car/#comments Tue, 28 Oct 2014 15:36:15 +0000 http://gizmorati.com/?p=16097

It has been the era of modern technology making our lives more simpler and sophisticated. Self driving cars is one of the products of such a technologically advanced era in science. It all started with Google with took the initiative for introducing this technology to cars. It has received applause from around the globe. This triggered the pioneers of the automotive industry to develop and introduce this kind of technology to their cars.

Audi recently has been proactive about this technology and recently it proved to the world that it is on par with the latest technology pertaining to the four-wheeler. It sent RS7 on to a race track without driver inside in Germany’s Hockenheimring. The RS7 with self driving ability nicknamed “Bobby”, lapped the Formula One track on Sunday under the close monitor of group of Audi engineers.

The 560 hp car the six straightaways at full throttle. The group observed the car taking precise turns at each of the 17 turns and  has hit 149 mph topping its charts.The group has announced that the self driving car ‘Bobby’ has completed the lap in roughly 2 min, 10 sec. This is about 30 seconds slower than the times posted by the professionally-trained humans in the DTM races held after the Audi demonstration.

Approach of Audi has been different from that of Google where the internet giant concentrates on slow sub urban roads, Audi takes the sporty high speeds as a challenge.

Bobby, had a detailed digital map of the track and was following an optimized path through it, Audi did not preprogram things like torque or steering. It was up to the car to decide how to keep up speed and stay on track. It had to adjest to things like changing trackion and grip, and the chance to see how it fared is what makes this testing useful.

Audi is taking a slow but gradual, evolutionary approach installing autonomous technologies one by one as they are proved reliable. Hope to see self driving cars from Audi available for the public to buy as soon as possible.

Everybody must have had dreams to visit or even some would have even visited the places like New York, San Francisco, Stockholm or Oslo. But because of some reasons it wouldn’t have been possible. This is where the Sound City Project steps in to gives its user the real feel of the city of their desire without even leaving home.

Sound City Project is an immersive audiovisual experience combining 3D sounds and panoramic views  of popular and iconic world locations.The 360-degree black and white image view of such locations alongside high-quality recordings gives the user an realistic experience about the place. The locations which are available are Broadway and Union Square in New York, Golden Gate Bridge and the Japanese Tea Garden in San Francisco, and The Old Town and Sergel Square in Stockholm.

The creator David Vale has now collaborated with Rick van Mook and Caco Teixeira for this amazing project. The project is now visiting the smaller cities of Bergen and Flam in Norway.

You select your desired location by the city maps or website navigation and you can easily imagine you are standing on a street corner amongst the city’s sights and sounds.

Three-dimensional sound is the key factor to make it as realistic as possible. To create the 3D sound they wanted, the team prototyped a series of 3D printed “soundheads” with two pairs of microphone “ears” at 90-degree angles. The soundhead is based on the human head and takes into account the distance betwen the ears, allowing for head-related transfer function, a response that characterizes how an ear receives a sound from a point in space.

This project is similar to Night Walk launched earlier this year by Google. Night Walk integrates numerous Google products which play a part in exploring the streets with the ambient city sounds.

For music lovers, headphones are becoming more and more important, as people tend to spend more of their lives on the go. That’s in addition to the obvious benefit of listening without disturbing others, whether they are roommates, neighbors or fellow commuters. Buying these headphones is not easy. Most people will go by the most recognizable brand in their budget. But that might not always be the best deal you can get. Here are few tips of how to purchase a good set of headphones.

Ear buds vs. In-ear vs. On-ear vs. Over-ear

There are four major types of headphones.

Ear buds : These type sit in your ear, but are not inserted into your ear canal. They’re comfortable for long periods and usually the cheapest option. However, they can fall out of your ear and they don;t isolate noise. If you want this type, ideally get those with ear clips so they stay stable.

earbuds

In-ear : These type have a rubber tip which is inserted into your ear canal, blocking out noise and directing all the sound directly inside. That fit can be uncomfortable for some people though. Most phones ship with these.

On-ear : The foam padding of these will sit on your ear, but not engulf it. This design tends to let a little noise through. These strike a balance between portability and good sound.

over_on_in

Over-ear : These look similar to on-ear, but are slightly larger. It’s all about the sound with no consideration for how bulky or heavy they are. Over-ear headphones will completely wrap around your ear, touching your head. They’re great for noise isolation and comfortable to wear, but they’re not easy to carry around or wear and walk around.

Before you buy any headphone, decide which of the above four types best suits your tastes.

Twitter, a couple of days back has released a new software development kit at the developers conference. It is called as Fabric. It definitely is the friendliest platform till date for all the mobile app developers. It does a lot of pretty cool things. But what is significant in knowing about a platform that is very useful for the app developers? The under-the-hood news is what that is interesting. It is not just a tool for developers.

Fabric is the foundation for Twitter to transform a business based purely on single product-tweets, into a diversified service aimed at every person and company that makes mobile apps. This would affect every-person who uses mobile apps.

The only way a company could become the part of lives on a grand scale is to make a handset or an operation system, but Twitter has no plans of Twitter phone or Twitter OS. Instead it wants to make the way in a big way through the applications that are being used on the devices. If Twitter succeeds with this plan, it wont matter whether or not you use Twitter the product, but you will end up using Twitter the company every time you use your phone- without your knowledge.

To achieve this Twitter is going to give them-at no charge- a suite of tools designed to help them sign up new users, analyse their applications usage. In exchange, the developers will build Twitter right into every app that gets written.

“This is a big step for Twitter,” says Kevin Well, who runs all of  Twitter’s business products and leads the Fabric effort. He believes that this will help the company stepping into play a more powerful role in the mobile ecosystem.

If that sounds audacious, it really is. And this is the real transformation of Twitter.

An accident is what you would like to avoid , especially that involves pedestrians when seating inside your car. Car manufacturers today are inventing new technologies that would reduce or completely avoid the accidents involving pedestrians.

Recently Ford has joined the fraternity of the companies that have been introducing anti-collision to its vehicles. The company has announced a new “pre-collision assist” system that takes utilized the radar and cameras mounted on the car to actively detect pedestrians and apply brakes automatically to avoid or to reduce the severity of the accidents.

A windshield-mounted camera and radar located near the bumper scan the road and provide warning to the driver if a collision risk is detected and if the driver fails to respond promptly enough, the system can automatically brake applying full force if necessary.

The semi-automated collision avoidance systems like the this , one developed by Volvo and the recent Tesla with its new autopilot functions are designed with an aim to reduce the dangerous impacts of distracted driving.  It seems to the companies that this kind of assistive design imbibe bad habits to the drivers, but Ford stresses that this kind of systems are not for replacing the driver but to save lives and prevent injuries of the people.

Ford says that its engineers have tested the system and closed tracks using rigs fitted with mannequins under a variety conditions.

After thorough testing and several trials the system will first debut as an option on the 2015 Ford Mondeo in Europe this year before expanding to other models and markets.

Toca, a chicgao-cased customization firm has released a twin-turbo 600-hp performance version of Hyundai’s Genesis sedan dubbed ” Steel Phoenix” ahead of SEMA in Las Vegas next month.

Hyundai and Toca are competing with the German “super-sedans” like that BMW-M5 and Mercedes E63 AMG with the Steel Phoenix. The car engine gets a significant engine boost with the reworked version of Hyundai’s 5.0 liter “Tau” V8. This version gives a 600hp power, courtesy to the Garrett twin-turbo setup.

Under the bonnet, the Steel Phoeix has been fitted with two Garret inter coolers, wastegates and boost control valves from TiAL and a custom oil cooling system from Earl’s Performance. This upgraded version has an ARK Performance twin exhaust system.

Extra power needs upgrades in the chassis and braking system, which has bee done by the Toca. The Steel Phoenix is fitted with an AirREX air suspension system that lowers the car’s ride height for  a better presence on the road,  and front brakes have been upgraded to 380-mm disc clamped by 8-piston forged calipers.Rear brakes are 356-mm disc and 6-piston forged calipers.

The 21-inch wheels wrapped in Toyo Proxes T1R tires measuring  255/30 up front and 295/25 at the rear round out the performance package. The wheel and tire package besides providing  good grip they complement the car’s wide body kit and lowered stance. The custom metallic grey paint mix gives the “steel” in “steel Phoenix” package.

Toca has changed the interiors too, contrast white stitching on the Hyundai’s black leather seats, carbon fiber trim and a Rockford Fosgate stereo system, which takes the advantage of a new trunk screen that shows off the car’s audio and air-suspension hardware.

The Steel Phoenix Genesis will be on display at SEMA, which runs from 4-7 November.

Toshiba has launched the new Satellite Radius “2-in1″ convertible laptop to compete with its industry peers. This laptop is not the best of the “convertible category”  but offers decent features like excellent battery life being it the best in class for a  device this size.

At the first sight you will feel that the Toshiba Satellite Radius looks like any other wide-scree 15.6 inch laptop, with spacious trackpad and an island-style keyboard. There is also the numeric keypad but the compressed style of the keys make it difficult for the speed entry on numbers. The 15.6 inch screen offers 10-point touchability. It also rotates for a complete 360 degrees making it flexible for using it. The complete rotation makes it possible to have presentation mode (the inverted ‘V’) of the laptop. It offers a bigger screen than Lenovo Yoga which was the first in this category.

The oversized screen might pose more of a challenge to the user. Adding to its screen-size, the convertible has a weight of 4.8 pounds which is the heaviest among all the standard tablet devices. It also a bit awkward to hold such a huge slate in hand.

The body of the Toshiba Radius is made out brushed aluminium featuring slim plastic bumpers around the edges. The slate is quite slim, with its 21mm thickness it feels comparably light.

Talking about the usage, the Toshiba Satellite Radius works fine without any complaint. All the components such as keyboard, touchpad and touchscreen are all accurate and responsive. The audio quality is crisp and loud courtesy of Harman/Kardon speakers.

Toshiba Satellite Radius review

The screen has a resolution of 1920×1080 pixels feel dim and the slow graphics would not help in anything. Toshiba Satellite Radius has relatively high-end 2.6GHz core i7,8GB RAM,USB 3.0 ports, HDMI, and an SD card reader. On the whole Toshiba Satellite Radius under-performs for its specs. The benchmarks are the proof for this which show that some Atom processor laptops are better than this.

Toshiba Satellite Radius review performance

On the whole, plus to this device is the amazing battery life which is promised to have more than 6.5 hours with a screen of this size and the minuses are many as already stated. Buying this product is at users discretion.

It can be burdensome to the web users to remember the passwords if they subscribe to lots of online services. It is also difficult to key in the email address and passwords in mobile phones. Twitter tries to fix this and begins war on passwords with its new app called ‘Digits’. Digits will offer us ‘freedom of passwords’. Because of this, we no longer need to remember the complex user names and passwords. We just have to remember the combination of digits which makes up our mobile number which is much more simpler.

Digits allows the users to log-in to mobile apps with a phone number. Jeff Seibert, director for mobile platforms at the popular social network, introduced Digits, a free tool Twitter offers in 28 languages and 216 countries. The purpose of this ‘social sign-in’ service is to simplify the log-in process for users, while providing more reliable demographic information to web developers. Digits aims to simplify the process by allowing the users to log-in to mobile apps using their phone number alone. After downloading the app, the user simply has to enter their phone number and the app will verify it by sending a text message to that number and reading it automatically. digits

Digits is just one among the features of Twitter’s new mobile development platform, called Fabric, which aims to give developers a comprehensive toolkit for developing apps that integrate with Twitter. It is an interesting concept and it’s nice to see Twitter expanding its services for once, instead of just leaving Facebook to do all the work.

Back in March 2014, Google unveiled its brand new wearable tech operating system, Android wear. The first to chime in the product announcement was the trusty Motorola – the company spoke up a matter of hours after Android wear was initially unveiled. Finally Moto 360 is officially here.

Display and Design :

Moto 360 has a 1.56-inch LCD display clad with Gorilla Glass 3 on a round watch-face, making it the only the circular smartwatch in the market. The IPS panel is pretty good to look at and adjusts the brightness by itself if you have turned on the ambient light sensor. The display remains turned off usually but lights up automatically when you turn the wrist to look at the watch; of course this means that the display panel lights up anytime your wrist faces upward, for example while typing an email on a laptop. The Motorola smartwatch looks much better than the other smart watches available in the market now.

How it works :

Basically, Moto 360 is just like any other Android wear smartwatch – it brings all of your smartphone’s notifications to your wrist. All of your notifications, such as SMSs, WhatsApp messages, emails, updates or alerts by apps etc, come on your wrist as soon as you pair it with an Android 4.3 or 4.4 smartphone. The problem in this is that the app selection is limited.

Battery life :

Moto 360, sadly, does not have all-day battery life if used to its full capabilities. During the review period of the watch, maximum battery life that it delivered was 17 hours, while the average period was in the range of 14 and 15 hours.

Moto 360 is currently priced at Rs. 17,999. But it is still a lot of money to spend on a gadget like that which still have a room for improvement.

Facebook on Thursday released an application that lets the users create virtual ‘rooms’ to chat about whatever they wish using any name they would like. This software is introduced in the US and Britain and is available now for iPhone. Users can sign in to the app with an email address or use a pseudonym and they don’t need a Facebook account to join. It is a free app that lets you create or join chat rooms based on shared interests. It brings people together around their interests.

A “Room” is a feed of photos, videos and text like Facebook or Instagram, but the focus is on a single topic by the person who created it. According to Facebook, the Rooms application was inspired by both the ethos of these early web communities and the capabilities of modern smartphones. In each room you create or join, you can have your own name or identity according to your own interests and need not have your real name. You can use different nicknames too for different rooms.

Rooms is just the latest example of Facebook’s continued focus on refining how users send messages to one another. Facebook already has apps called Messenger, WhatsApp and Slingshot, which help users send messages to one another or groups. Its photo-sharing app Instagram allows largely anonymous users to share photos and have conversations. people who choose to run individual rooms can choose whether they want it to be a free-for-all of anyone posting whatever they like, or they can approve posts manually as they are sent.

Rooms is available today on Apple’s iOS in the US, UK and some other English-speaking countries.

The automotive industry has become one of the most competitive field of work and lot of investments are being made on the research work which aim to design most efficient and powerful engines. Now the new marvel in engine design is the 4-in-1 piston engine concept. Namikoshi Electronics of Japan believes its unorthodox concept engine could provide an alternative power plant to the automotive industry.

For this design of the engine there remain many friction points that reduce energy output.The engine design has tool ages to evolve.It took many forms like the Duke Engine radical design & Volvo’s 450 hp triplr turbocharged four banger. Now the Japanese industry believes that this new low-friction engine is getting its turn in the limelight.

The company believes that the design has significant advantages over traditional engines in terms of friction and vibration. Unlike the traditional design of engine where pistons are connected in-line to the crankshaft, Namikoshi has fixed the opposing the opposing pistons onto one central unit. This approach reduces vibration and the number of friction points when compared to a typical 4-cylinder engine, producing vibration levels similar to that of a rotary engine, as claimed by the company.

The company feels that this new design would significantly reduce the emissions as outputs of this design would be on par with hybrid engine. Namikoshi which designed the engine has realized that its 4-in-1 piston engine could possible be adapted for use in the automotive sector.

Although the company has not provided with any output specs or friction efficencies relative to a traditional four-cylinder to back up the claim. But the company says its invention will be really taken into and adapted quickly. It also see applications fro the design, with alterations, in scenarios such as heating water from waste heat in geothermal systems.

Below is the video of the display test of Namikoshi’s  4-in-1  piston engine concept.

AOL has announced that its new app will be available on Google’s Android TV, the same day when the internet giant unveiled the first streaming media player that would run the new platform. AOL said that its library of premium content would help them in expanding the reach of its service.

The company’s app include original shows like the short-form series “Park Bench with Steve Buscemi,” movies such as those from Miramax and clips from brands AOL owns like Huffpost Live and TechCrunch.

Google’s previous attempt Google TV, a seperate software package that promised easy access to television listings and full access to the web on a TV, was a failure. Learning from its mistakes and making the necessary improvements Google has developed the Chromecast which has been the best seller but to what extent the reach of this device is still unclear.

AOL President of Video and Studios Dermot McCormack said being on preferred devices is crucial for companies like AOL as viewing habits evolve. Rob Delacruzm vice president and general manger of consumer experiences at AOL Video, said that Anroid TV is unique for personalized ways to discover content, through Google’s introduction of “recommendation cards”.

Personalized content recommendations appear automatically on a user’s home scree, and users can utilize a voice search feature, cast from their laptops, phones and tablets, as well as control Android TV deivices from their phones and Android wear devices.

AOL continues to take its step towards the commitment to strengthening consumer video offerings, and providing viewers with the content they love across every screen and every device.

Technology has widespread into all aspects. Digital innovations make it possible for consumers to use portable devices to access their medical information, monitor their vital signs and carry out a wide range of tasks. Now iPhone brought an interesting app to ensure your eye health. Researchers have successfully used an iPhone app for imaging the inside of the eye of immobile and paediatric patients. The team used the iExaminer smart phone system and an iPhone to image 28 paediatric patients with a diverse range of retinal and optic nerve conditions.

The system consists of a PanOptic Opthalmoscope and an adapter that attaches the opthalmoscope to an iPhone to enable taking photos and videos. PanOptic Opthalmoscope is a lighted instrument to examine the inside of the eye.

It can image the key structures of the back of the eye in a single view without necessarily requiring dilation drops. The associated app facilitates capture, storage and transfer of data. This also makes it possible for real-time tele medicine consultation without violating patient identity as no external facial features are revealed. This system is not only useful for Opthalmologists but also physicians, general practitioners and hospitals.

Photography plays a critical role in documenting and tracking the progression of eye diseases. It can instantly capture photos and videos of the back of the eye through an undilated pupil. This new app helps us to check our eye health time to time and keep it healthy. In short span of time, this app is going to replace big instruments in hospitals which also makes it easy to use.

Google, the internet giant has introduced its first OS platform, Chrome OS which has become huge hit in the technology market. And from the launch of Chromebook by the it has been the rapidly growing OS platform. And now Samsung has revealed a new, 11.6 inch addition to the line that’s powered by an Intel chip.

There is a 2.16GHz dual-core Intel Celeron N2840 processor at the heart of the new Chromebook. Like the existing Chromebook 2 (along with several of Samsung’s recent smartphones and tablets) the new Chromebook has a faux leather(plastic) finish.

There is a pair of 2 watt speakers, a 720p webcam and 802.11ac wireless module. The machine features the same 1.67cm(0.66 in) thickness and 1.2 kg(2.65 lbs) weight as the existing model. According to the company the new product is also more rugged than competing systems, offering a reinforced metal frame. It has display and electronics-protecting electrostatic insulators.

This new model from Samsung carries over the same spec found on the existing 11.6 inch Chromebook 2 model, which had an octa-core Samsung Exynos 5 processor in place of the Intel chip. The new model like its elder brother has a non-reflective 1366*768 display and 2 GB RAM.

On the storage front the company is not offering any expansive internal storage solution. There is only 16 GB flash storage on board, but since the Chrome OS is all about working in the cloud the provide storage is more that what is required. And  you get a 100 GB of Google Drive storage free for two years with this device.

This modern age has witnessed one of the all time greatest inventions. One of the many and most popular invention was the technology of 3D printing. It has been used in almost all the fields that one could think of. Be it a toy or a medical implant the 3D printed items prove to be of great value and help. The main advantage of the 3D printed medical implants is that it can be manufactured or produced according to the requirement and demand. It helps in producing patient specific implants.

The patient specific 3D implants use a combination of CT imaging, modeling software and 3D printing technology in their production. Such a patient specific implants would help avoiding the complications that has to be faced by the patient.

Knee replacement surgery count has gone up and is a procedure undertaken by around 700,000 people annually, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. Post surgery issues such as the minor blood loss and infections arise due to the mismatch in the specifics.

A Massachusetts-based medical device company has created a new ground in knee replacement surgery. The company produces patient specific implants with the help of CT scan that taken the patient’s hip, knee and ankle, with the company’s specialized software converting the scan into an exact 3D model of the patient’s deteriorating knee. Using this model, personalized implants and instruments are made as one-off devices, produced, in part, by 3D printers.

The company claims that its implants will mimic the curves and feel of the patient’s original knee, eliminating many of the problems that typically accompany the procedure. One recipient to CBS Boston, ” Physical therapy was much easier. I got movement so much faster. If i didn’t see the scar on it, I would assume it was my normal knee”.

This speaks the advantages of the 3D printed knee. Below is the overview.

Robotics, the parent for the mind controlled robotic arm, has been an essential part of revolutionizing any technology. Since a decade or so there has been more inclination towards robotics in all the fields of the science. It has been one field that does not have any limits to reach. Its use in prostheses  has been on the rise in the past few years. All the technological explosion has made this possible in terms of both capability and cost.

Few years in the past no body would have imagined if there would be something externally connected to the human body and still be controlled by the mind. But today robotics with association with other scientific fields have made it a reality. A proof for the concept of mind controlling prosthetic arm.

The prosthetic arm has a electrode-implanted biomuscular interface which provides the advantage of having more stable platform for their limb,along with easier attachment and detachment. The feedback and control experienced by the recipient means that they are able to interact more fully-and with much greater finesse- than they could with a traditional prosthetic replacement.

The electronics of this has a close proximity between the implant controls and electrodes in the muscles also diminishes the possibility of activity from other muscles interfering with signals. This makes the control of prosthesis movement more intuitive.

The implant,it is free from any environmental interference, changes in temperature or misfirings from electromagnetic intereference. The electrodes implanted directly into the nerves may be used to send signals directly to the brain as felt sensations emanating from the prosthesis.

The researcher plan to help more amputees with this technology later this year.

In the recent revelations in the reports of Reuter, the tech giant Google has applied tto the FCC which is to obtain the permission to use the unused air waves to begin wireless spectrum tests in the San Francisco area.

The company wanted such a permission as it would want to test its new technology that might be the foundation for the next generation wireless version of it super fast “Fiber” Internet service. The news was revealed to the public by the telecommunication experts who scrutinized the company’s regulatory filings.

A new path

Google wants its internet services directly into homes through wireless medium. With such a initiative the internet giant would open a new path now thoroughly dominated by Verizon, AT&T, Comcast and other entrenched cable and broadband providers.

With this new technology the internet service could be of ultra-fast speed. This also potentially offers quick and cheap way to deliver internet services. This could be endangering to the cable-telecom firms.

Craig, Barratt, the head of the Google Access and Energy division leading the effort to offer high-speed fiber networks in Kansas City and other locations, signed off as the authorized person submitting Google’s FCC application.

In the application the firm has requested to used the millimeter frequency range of EM waves for testing this technology. Stephen Crowley, a wireless engineer and consultatn who monitors FCC filings, says that the “mm” frequency can transmit data at speeds of several gigabits per second over short distances.

This application to conduct the 18-day test is heavily redacted to protect confidential information that Google said would provide “valuable insight into Google’s  technology innovations and potential business plans and strategy.

If the tests prove to be fruitful and stable it poses a potential for super-fast internet in the future

Is n’t it surprising and exciting to know that some bizarre creature is our very distant cousin! But it is proved to be so. They have been a mystery since their discovery more than a century ago. With the discovery of fossils of these bizarre creatures recently on Kangaroo island off of Australia, researchers understood how these creatures fit into the tree of life. As improbable as it seems, these bizarre creatures are distant relations of humans. These creatures were lived five hundred million years ago and are eyeless swimmers.

These creatures are in the strange 8-figured shape. These were lived during the Cambrian period and are called vetulicolians. They appear to have possessed a notochord, a hollow nerve structure – just like modern vertebrates acting as a cartilaginous sort of skeletal support before the bones form. Some boneless invertebrates including these creatures retain the notochord through out the life. All animals with notochords are called chordates. This puts vetulicolians in the same chordate category as vertebrates including humans. These vetulicolians were truly bizarre. They lacked eyes, had a wide mouth and a segmented tail. These animals swam through oceans like miniature whale sharks. Running through the tails were long rod like structures. They might have been part of the gut, but they were unusually long and wide. More mysteriously, the rods appeared segmented into strange block-shaped structures.

Generally, Notochords are present in the embryos of all vertebrates including humans which made the researchers say that these were our cousins. Research shows that these vetulicolians likely swam through water columns, filter-feeding. Researchers say that the ultimate goal is to reconstruct the family tree of some of the first animals ever to evolve.

You Tube is the most popular video-sharing site which allows us to view or post videos. Many users across the world use You Tube for checking on videos or posting their ad videos or movies or whatever it is. But recently, to our surprise, Facebook which is a social networking website has dominated You Tube in august in sharing videos! Videos on Facebook are fast catching up with You Tube in terms of number of shares and this popular social networking website may soon overtake You Tube in video sharing.

Brads used to prefer You Tube to share their links of their advertisements. But now it seems so that they are preferring Facebook to share their links than You Tube. What many people tend to do is upload their videos on You Tube and post those links in their Facebook or twitter profiles. So, even though they have uploaded the same video in both You Tube and Facebook, the users in Facebook are viewing, interacting, liking or commenting the videos more compared to the interaction in You Tube. Hence, even the top brands preferred to use Facebook to advertise their brands as it may have more response because except almost no one uses this.

Facebook is now adding a pair of You Tube like features. We will be able to see how many views a video on Facebook has received, something that has been part of You Tube’s service since years. Another feature is to show the related videos after the user has watched a video. Basing on these latest news, Facebook may soon challenge You Tube in becoming top video sharing website.

Video content for that matter any kind of media can be easily shared on these two services. Now Skype is now getting on the same stream action of sharing media with its new Qik app.

With Qik, essentially Skype Lite, users can share short videos as a one-off message or part of a conversation. Thus the media content is shared and saved. This is available for iOS, Android and Windows Phone today, though not all features are available on all platforms at launch.

Skype calls have been on high on count during the weekends than the week days. The Skype program managers say that this Qik app application will let its customers to connect each other through out the week through small videos and other media.

The managers also added that this application makes the video conversations more spontaneous and fun that you don’t have to wait until your next call to connect with your favorite people.

Once this application is downloaded onto your mobile OS the user can start sharing videos with anyone in his contacts list. The person who uses Qik app will get the media and other who do not use the application get instructions to install the app.

The release comes several years after the giant , Skype, has acquired real-time video broadcasting service Qik, though Qik was not officially shut down until April. The developers of the either ends of the deal have collaborated and have rebuilt the app to fit the modern style of media sharing.

Last few months it has been a feast to the technology enthusiast with the release of most advanced gadgets like the Apple iWatch, Moto 360 etc in the wearable segment. These gadgets offer a lot to its users. Apple iWatch one among the best smart watches so far released has understood the need of the accessibility of these apps and other features by introducing a digital crown that can zoom into the content.

For the big fingers these smart watches prove to be clumsy as this will not allow free navigation on the screen. All the so released  smart watches have this same problem of having a smaller screen. So what is the solution for making it is easy to navigate and to have a better look and feel? Is increasing the size of the screen is the only solution making it bulky and look uglier? The researchers from Carneige Mellon University disagree to this solution.

Gierad Laput, a PhD student at Carneige Mellon in the Future Interfaces Group says why not be a little more creative in finding the solution of this problem? He proposes his solution as why not turn our arm into an extension of the watch. In a recent publication Laput and his team have explored projecting interactive buttons onto skin as a way to extend a smart watch’s display.

Laput alongside his team have developed these skin buttons. They help in performing various activities such as the open an email or music application by tapping an icon on your wrist. You can navigate through apps, using the skin buttons as arrows to scroll up down and over. The team head Laput says that this will alleviate space constraints with is an obstacle for the actual application.

This invention becomes a technical marvel, if a smart watch could project the notifications or even the screen itself. Lets see what is in store for us in the future.

The mobile giant Apple has been on the streak of giving newer and innovative products to its customers. It never has disappointed its customers with its services. One of its announcements included the announcement of the Apple CarPlay back in March for infotainment in Vehicles. This announcement has attracted the attention of many people as this was the first time that the company has come out to provide a service like this.

But it was known at that time it would be available and integrated only in selected vehicles, at least initially. This led to some amount of disappointment for the iPhone-toting drivers.

Now Pioneer has come up with three multimedia systems that can be fitted to any vehicle and feature Apple CarPlay to offer smartphone control from behind the wheel. This has been welcomed by the music lovers too as they can playlists directly from their smartphone without any external media.

These new Pioneer devices link the iPhone with a touchscreen display via cable, which acts as a charging source at the same time. They offer up common iOS apps on-screen, such as Messages, Maps and iTunes Radio, along with the access to third-party streaming software such as Spotify.

The multimedia system also supports the Siri feature which helps in anything from navigation, finding the nearest coffee shop, reading and responding to text messages to performing routine Google searches.

The system also can connect with any device with playback support for DVD, CD, USB and aux-in, the regular set of features of any multimedia system. It also features Bluetooth module if the need arises.

The reach of this infotainment system can be revolutionary in its segment.

To keep your photos and messages safe and sound, a new app is released now which protects your pictures from screenshots. “Yovo” – “You Only View Once” is the app developed by a privacy software company called Content Guard. It is the iOS enabled app which uses a common optical illusion to make your sent photos a lot harder for the receiver to screenshot.

It brings an interesting technology into picture. This new technology is called D-fence (Digital fence). It lets you add flickering filter to your photo. It is based around the idea that your eyes can see what’s behind a slatted fence as you are driving by at a high-speed. This application lets you share photo messages with self destruct timers on them. With this ability, the photos disappear after a designated time frame. You can set this timer for how long you want his message or post to be visible to others. It has ways to conceal an image such as blurring our the image to the extent we wish to or covering up the image with digital fence or bars. Yovo does not prevent the ability of screenshots to be captured. Instead it obscures them by making the resulting screenshots almost entirely unusable.

When the receiver wants to view your image, they can view it completely for the specific time that you set already. If they try to take the screenshot of the image, it appears as the blurred image or the digital bars will cover up your photo which does not let them see your image clearly. This app is now currently available in iOS and you can download it for free from the iTunes app store.

Want to be a center of attraction in rain? Then you can have fun with Air umbrella. It is also called as “Invisible umbrella”. Because the upper part of umbrella is not visible in this kind. Only the bottom part is visible. The traditional umbrella is compact and resistant but cannot withstand very strong winds. But this invisible umbrella can withstand even in the power of storm.

Structure and operation:

This type of umbrella removes the plastic top of traditional umbrella, replacing it with wind shield. It has a simple adjustable handle, so the user can rest their arm at whatever height they want, the option which lacks in traditional umbrellas. It is a battery-operated umbrella. The basic principle of this device involves sucking of air at the bottom of handle and shooting it out of the top in the pattern of a canopy. In case of heavy rains or storms this canopy or shield can be widened by the controls given on the handle. Removing the canopy also dispenses with minutes shaking all the water off before you bring it inside.

As the umbrella is designed to shoot the rain away from your head through an air pump, it would certainly shoot out the rain on the innocent bystanders. When the wind curtain is actually strong enough, the device has a significant flaw about its battery life. If the storm is particularly strong, it drains out the battery quickly. Generally this battery lasts for 30 minutes. In that case, we may have to carry another battery which could be difficult.

However, this design seems great as the plastic canopy of traditional umbrella turns inside out at the gust of wind.

Now it is possible to charge your phone even when you are not in reach of power grid! Wanna know how it is done? Then you have to check out the new “Ampy charger” found by three PhD engineering students of Northwestern University. It uses “Kinetic energy” to charge your smart phone. With an average of 10,000 steps per day, you can charge ampy and it can be used to charge your smart phone or smart watch or fitness tracker or any other accessories. The same is applicable for an hour of cycling or 30 minutes of running. It charges using the motion of your body. You just need to put it in your pocket or strap it onto your body.

Specifications:

The device’s size is approximately half the size of the smart phone but with the same weight. Its size is 2.5″ x 2.5″ x 0.75″ and weighs around 140g. It houses a meagre 1000 mAh battery that charges with the kinetic energy. It has a USB port for output and a micro USB port for input. This can be used as a regular power bank charging from a wall outlet using this micro USB input.

Accessories:

It has an additional pack of accessories such as armband, sleeve and clip. You can wear Ampy around your arm, leg, clip it on your clothes or put it in a purse or bag.

Price:

Currently, its price is $85 for the Ampy charger. If you wish to have the charger along with the other accessories such as armband, clip etc. it costs $105. Outside the US, shipping charge of $15 is also included.

It has an own application which shows the number of calories burned, energy generated for Ampy and carbon footprint offset got by using Ampy instead of using regular electricity. Finally, this is great for people who cannot wait to charge from general electricity. It also saves electricity. So worth using this!

Google named its next iteration of Android mobile OS as “Android 5.0 Lollipop” officially replacing the “Android L” code name. Google’s Lollipop has a consistent design called “Material Design“. It allows the users to add an animated look to their apps. Elements can dynamically shrink and expand, there’s more white space between elements. There is an overall 3D look.

Battery Saver Feature:

Battery generally drains out when we use the devices more. Lollipop has a new battery-saver feature that extends the device life by as much as 90 minutes. It gives more control over the device. Also, when an important notification comes through, one can see it directly from the lock screen. Multiple user accounts and guest user mode are enabled and devices can be secured with a PIN, password or pattern or by pairing the phone to a trusted device like a watch or car with smart lock.

Nexus devices running Android 5.0 Lollipop:

Nexus 6 is developed in collaboration with Motorola. It is more like a Phablet. It has a contoured aluminium frame with a 6-inch Quad HD display and a 13 megapixel camera. Turbo charger is accompanied with that which provides 6 hours of use with just 15 minutes of charging.

In partnership with HTC, Nexus 9 Tablet is developed which can be easily carried around in one hand. It runs on Nvidia’s 64-bit Tegra K1 chip which provides a great gaming and multi-media experience. It has an 8-megapixel rear camera and 1.6-megapixel front camera and 16 GB or 32 GB of storage. It has a magnetically attached keyboard folio which can be folded into two different angles and rests securely on lap like a laptop.

In collaboration with Asus, Nexus player (a first device running Android TV) is released. It is a streaming media player for music, movies and videos. It is great for playing Android games on HDTV.

Now these three Nexus devices have the new Android 5.0 Lollipop while Nexus 4,5,7,10 and Google play edition devices are yet to be released in coming weeks with this new Lollipop OS.

Using the all new and improved Laser Detection And Ranging ( LADAR) system researchers have invented a new device that can generate high-definition 3D maps of objects at distance up to 10.5m (35 ft). This new system has been developed by the researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).

The team claims that this laser technology could find its application in fields related to forensics and pattern matching. Precision machining and assembly also can use this technology.

Going into the working of the system  the NIST LADAR device produces a range of wavelengths by utilizing what is called as frequency comb as a method of measuring signals to reveal the difference between the frequency measured and comb frequencies produced.

The NIST system receives the initial reflected laser light from the object scanned and then combines that with the light from the comb reflected laser light from the object scanned and then combines that with the light from the comb frequency light produced by a secondary laser.

The system using this laser technology will produce two measurement points every millisecond whilst ensuring sub-micrometer accuracy due to the precise nature of the frequency comb in defining the spatial coordinates. The system scans the object using these measurement points across a grid and then calculates the distance between each point. Using this distance data, the system generates a 3D image of approximately 1 million pixels in around 8.5 minutes, with distances on aspect of texture surfaces reflecting light in numerous directions accurately measure to within 10 micrometers.

One of the mooted applications for this 3D mapping technology is in the collection of forensic evidence.like virtual casts of compression footprints in soil.

This research was funded by NIST and DARPA with the results published in the journal Optics Express.

For starters, a Submersible Exosuit is a suit that uses a series of rotary joints in order to allow the pilot a high degree of flexibility. We all are audience for the idea of deep water excavation through different media like movies with help of graphics. This fantasy of diving deep below the surface about now can turn to reality with the help of Submersible Exosuit.

Canadian based Nuytco Research has created ADS-Automatic Diving System and has brought it to the sea floor usage. This suit allow the divers to safely operate at depths of up to 1,000 ft without any nasty pressure-induced side effects that so often ruin a deep sea diver’s day.

The Research centre does not call it a Submersible Exosuit, but instead it has given the invention a  official certificate as a submarine that merely happens to take the shape of a person. However be the official classification the Submersible Exosuit undoubtedly the most impressive and imposing tool that any wealthy diver enthusiast would love to have it in his arsenal.

The exterior is made of A536 aluminimum alloy and features pincer- like appendages located at the end of each arm that can be manipulated by the pilot to perform delicate tasks. It has a oxygen back up of about 50 hours, and has integrated batteries capable of running the electronics for the duration of the dive.

The magnetically attached thrusters help in maneuvering the suit. There are also additional LED lights, an HD camera and even sonar as the situation requires. And this depends on the variant of the suit needed for the purpose. The source of the mentioned details is Nuytco Research website.

Thinking about the price? Well, it comes with heavy price tag of about half a million US dollars. Still interested , buy one for yourself and try it. Share us your experience…

The Mayor of London, Boris Johnson on october 9 has revealed the new designs for the new underground transport system for London. These designs for the New Tube for London- a fleet of 250 trains become operational in the mid-2020s

The feature of the design that makes its extraordinary is that the trains are fully automatic operational.The designs have taken significant changes after estimating the demands of some parts of underground system needed much attention. For example, for the Piccadilly line which is the most demanded key route the demand is expected to increase by as much as 20 percent by 2020.

This new service aims to improve the overall transit of the city by increasing the number of trians,by increasing their speed, by increasing the capacity of the trains and by increasing the frequency of trains. This new concept of driverless trains will also helps in tackling the issue of growing population who use the underground train services.

Few changes that make this design unique from the existing train services are- addition of air cooling for the first time on deep-level stretches of the Tube, Wider doors, walk-through carriages, bulit-in live information screens and improved accessibility by means of step-free access. Although this new design does not include long range services they look more modern, spacious and open than the existing carriages.

The complete cost of this ambitious project is a estimated to be anywhere between $1.6 billion – $4 billion. Premier companies like Siemens, Hitachi and Bombardier are competing for the contract that is scheduled to be awarded in 2016.

The life span of this amazing carriages is about 40 years. The first new carriages are expected to roll onto the the Piccadilly line in 2022. You can also check out the video below for a fly-through of the new design.

Ever since 3D printing was made popular in the western part of the world, it has been put up to different purposes manufacturing different products. The wide varieties so manufactured using this technology include the NASA’s rocket engine, Complex machines, household utilities and wearables like shoes etc. However perfect the algorithms are and however fine the manufacturing is done for wearables like shoes there is a certain amount of roughness, which is undesirable.

Francis Bitonti, who has a rare blend of skill set- technology enthusiast and fashion designer has made 3D printed good to look more like a fashion material rather than some Maker Faire. He has made 3D printed stainless steel belts and some very pretty flatware. His new project was to create some – outstanding shoes.

This 3D printed shoes are made from pixel upon pixel of printed material. The stunning shapes are the result of using John Conway’s Game of Life as the starting point for the shoe’s algorithms. For the beginning stages Bitonti would define a set of rules and following which the algorithm would take the course of the manufacture of the shoe.

The shoes are colored using Stratsays machine, which blends the primary colors to form new tones. This machinery and procedure to manufacture shoes promise a bright future for 3D printed shoes.

The shoes were made for Adobe’s 3D Print Show. Bitonti and his team are currently in the process of developing a commercial version of the shoe that will include more structural support like an insole. For now the shoe is more a proof of concept than a commercial item.

Amazon is opening a store, a physical store. This is like a dream to many of us, amazon opening a store to showcase its products for shopping. It had to happen, that’s what The Wall Street Journal is reporting citing unnamed sources. The Journal adds that the physical store location across from the Empire State Building in Manhattan will open in time for the lucrative holiday shopping season.

For such a superhit online megastore amazon.com why to open a physical might be intriguing. A physical store is against the basic existence of the store. The fact that amazon is where is it today is because its online which offers great convenience to select from the wide varieties available. This also reduced the expenses like the rentals for the store and the salaries for the retail employees, instead which they invested in betterment of their website.

To answer the question, the sources say that this brick and mortar space across the street from the Empire State Building serves as a huge advertisement for the firm’s online operation. But behind the scenes, it will work in other ways- ways that reveal even bigger ambitions for the company.

Most recently Amazon has been taking aggressive steps to grab any piece of retail market, changing face of retail market to less lucrative with introduction of online shopping.

In recent times the online shopping sites have introduced the idea of one day delivery which amazon has taken it as a challenge to compete with other sites. But for groceries it takes two days which is little more than others.The futuristic plans of the firm give us an idea that it will deliver even them in a day.

But when a media site has seeked confirmation from the online store, a spokesperson of Amazon said ” We have made no announcements about a location in Manhattan.”. Lets wait up and see if this is really going to be happening.

iRobot is the most famous bot manufacturer whose bots can be used in military activities mostly. These bots perform harder and dangerous tasks. Worldwide more than 6000 iRobot’s security and defense robots are deployed. These bots do help in many dangerous activities, for example iRobot’s bots were helpful in reading the radiation levels in Fukushima nuclear power plant. The activities of this miniature wonder spans through various tasks which includes bomb disposal duties in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Now controlling these bots to achieve the primary goals is the most challenging activity for the controllers. With the minimal resources the controllers have been doing wonderful job. They used to control the robots with an outmoded interface which has a joystick to control and a separate monitor.

iRobot App Bot Army“The training of a controller of this bot took about five to six days which is a lot of time for a robot that’s really only meant to be used once in a while.” says iRobot Technical Director of Defense and Security, Orin Hoffman.

Controlling a mission-critical bot on such a complex interface proved to be stressful, which the company wants to reduce by taking the advantage of the open source platform Android. The company has created this new App which is the interface through which we can control the bot hassle-free and with more sophistication.

In its simplest of setups this arrangement of controlling the bot is easier than driving a remote-control car. The app’s live-view scree shows you a feed from a robot’s front-mounted camera, and tapping on locations simply drives to that point. The app also lets us to draw curves on the live-view which makes the bot to move in curved paths to reach the destination.

The system requires the uPoint Robot Radio rig, which is able to avoid jamming by moving communications to different frequencies if it detects network interference. “With a clear line of sight, the radio network can extend for kilometers,” Hoffman says.

Introducing a four cylinder engine is not something very special and would not draw much attention to it. But Volvo’ High Performance Drive-E Powertrain Concept is an exception. This 2.0 litre, gas powered unit features ” triple boost” technology that is capable of generating a massive power of not less than 450hp.

Unlike the regular turbocharged engines Volvo has come up with a new concept in engineering its engine. In a regular turbocharged engine the engine exhaust spins the turbos which forcefeeds additional air into the engine but this new design has two compressor units agead of the paralled twin turbochargers that “wind up” the impeller units prior to power coming online. This pre-spooling engineering so introduced reduces the turbo-lag disease that is present in the turbo engines.

This new engine is on-par racing engine delivering almost the power same as that of V8s and other race track engines. The direct fuel injection system helps in developing the extra power from the 2.0 liter engine.

Volvo design department team aims to develop the concepts of engines that reduces the emissions without compromising the performance. The resultant engine designs are part of the this ongoing process of new designs.

This new concept engine gives the unique combination of high power and quick response which generally is not the case with most of the high powered cars. The compact size improves weight distribution between the front and rear axle and lowers the center of gravity. These are two main factors that determine the handling of the car. Thus this engine also benefits the design too.

Breathing underwater one of the IMPOSSIBLE things for a human being .But scientists say that they have created a substance that will help in making this impossible thing to be possible. The scientists from the University of Southern Denmark have created which can absorb oxygen in high concentrations. They claim that a bucketful of this substance can absorb a roomful of oxygen.

The absorbed oxygen can also be released in a controlled manner when it is needed, the scientists say.This could replace the bulky scuba tanks that divers use for underwater swimming.

The major component of this new material is element cobalt, which is bound in a specially designed organic molecule. Based on various parameters like available oxygen content, ambient temperature,barometric pressure the absorption of oxygen by this new material may take anything from seconds to days.

Professor Christine McKenzie from the University of Southern Denmark says ” The material is both a sensor and a container for oxygen, we can use it to bind, store , and transport oxygen-like a solid artificial hemoglobin”

Breathing Underwater

The professor also added that by varying the constituents of this new material the rates of release and binding can also varied. This means it could be used to regulate oxyhen supply in fuel cells or create devices like masks that provide pure oxygen without any need of equipment.

Professor explains that divers can substitute the tanks for these materials as these can filter and concentrate oxygen from surrounding air or water . Few grains is what divers have to carry for their requirements.

There has been no word of possible commercial production or public availability of the material yet.

Google X labs, since its inception has been on the mission to make living more sophisticated and technologically advanced. It has been the visionary leading with ground-breaking technologies. Few to mention are the Google Glass and self-driving cars.

Now Google X labs adds a new technology to its arsenal which the internet is working on. This new project is about the creation of larger modular display made up of smaller displays or lego-like merging displays.

The Wall Street Journal describes the project as being “at early stage”. It says that the Google X team is trying to create a modular display technology in which smaller pieces fit into a larger screen. This display can be made into any shape whichever suits your style and needs.

The biggest challenge the researchers are trying to solve is not to just combine these displays but to combine them in such  a way that there are no visible seams. A WSJ source says that ” the big challenge is to electronically, and through software, do the stitching between the seams”.

But why? is the big question that has to be answered. This big idea seems to be almost impossible and far-fetched. But one should not forget that Google X was established on the foundation of to reach the ‘far-fetched’.

The answers for the big question are very difficult to even guess. Is Google planning to bring in new devices? Is it planning something even more bigger? These are few other questions that arise from the tech enthusiasts.

Because the report does not give any details and the journal’s reports state it to be in early stages, we should await an announcement from Google X.

Earlier this week HP has confirmed its split into two divisions for its own betterment. Following its lead the security firm Symantec has also might have made the decision to split. Reports for Bloomberg suggested that the security giant tech may split in two.

The report cited unnamed people connected and with knowledge of the matter who suggested that the security firm is in “advanced” talks to break up its business. One of the resulting companies would sell Symantec’s security programs while the other would offer data storage options.

The move to split into two divisions might be announced officially in the next few weeks although the company has declined to comment on the rumor when contacted by a media firm.

If the rumor turns into reality, that is if the split happens according the plans, Symantec would be the latest in a string of firms who have announced similar moves in recent weeks. EBay in late September revealed plans to separate form PayPal in 2015. This move was announced for their betterment as it was stated that the companies will be able to pursue new markets and partnerships independently.

The other company with the same set plans and to split recently is the Hewlett-Packard.The company split into two publicly traded companies.

The Symantec rumor comes after the company has trimmed its Norton security line from nine products to one. The flagship solution, dubbed Norton Security, will include all the functions of the security firm’s existing products.

Will this rumor turns into reality? Will have to wait for following weeks for the announcement.

The 2014 Nobel Prize for physics is being awarded to three scientists namely Isamu Akasaki and Hiroshi Amano at the University of Nagoya, and Shuji Nakamura working at Nichia Chemicals in Tokushima, Japan. The researches received the 2014 Nobel Prize in physics on Tuesday for inventing efficient blue light emitting diode(LED).

Their invention, a efficient blue light LED, has allowed the creation of white LED light sources causing a phenomenal effect in the field of light sources.The use of these LED lights have spanned from home lightning, headlights,TV screens to traffic signals marking an energy-efficient lightning.

This LED technology is now being used in high speed networking, data storage, smartphones, water purification and efficient home illumination. Their usage in optical fibers has made the impossible possible by reaching unimaginable speeds for the data transmission.

The unique features of the LED lights with characteristics such as the directionality has added huge number of advantages to the invention. Another key advantage is that the minimal amount of power being used to produce light. This technology uses as much as around 20% of the electrical energy used by preceding technologies like incandescent and fluorescent lights.

White LEDs have become the part of regular lightning of offices and household. The white light so artificially produced is the result of the blend of the three primary colors of light: red, green and blue.

LEDs are very efficient at converting electrical energy into visible light, but blue LEDs proved much harder to engineer than red and green ones. Almost a quarter of the electrical energy consumed will be used for illumination by these.

European regulators are scrutinizing tax deal between Luxembourg and Amazon which may amount to “illegal state aid,” reports suggest.

According to the financial times, the EU’s Competition Commission is on the verge of launching an intense probe into the country’s tax arrangements with the online retail giant. The publication says that a 2003 arrangement may have led to potentially illegal subsidies for operations conducted in Europe over almost a decade.

Tax rulings and arrangements are not illegal in Europe but several such delas have come under scrutiny in the past several years to check the credibility of the arrangements and , if any, illegal deals. Such deals hamper the revenue the country should earn from the foreign investments as their would be tax breaks and reduced levels of income from the company.

Amazon’s 2003 arrangement focuses on a deal which capped the tech giant’s tax exposure to the Grand Duchy, According to people familiar with the matter, this special arrangement limited the firm’s overall bill to less than one percent of Amazon’s European revenue.

The retail giant is not the only company facing  tax-based investigations by EU regulators– as Apple in Ireland, Starbucks in the Netherlands and Fiant Finance and Trade in Luxembourg have also come under fire in the recent times. It is alleged that Apple and the Irish government struck a deal which gives the iPad and iPhone maker a lower corporate tax rate of around two percent in the country, while the standard rate is over 12 percent. In return, apple is to guarantee jobs in Ireland.

But Microsoft Research has made this possible to turn the living room into a huge game giving the gamers the live-in-the-game experience.

The software giant is famous for one of its kind products from their arsenal. With this new product the research division of the company has once again proved what are they worth of. The researchers at Microsoft have showed off Room Alive, an immersive gaming experience that turns your surroundings into the game.

This new technology uses a Kinect sensors and multiple projectors to extend the gaming experience beyond the confines of the TV. The multi-projector system is fixed to the ceiling.

Once the game is initiated the players no long sit on the couch and interact via controllers. The players hit their target with a plastic gun or by slapping it with their hands.

The multiple projector-camera units that include a depth camera, a wide-field-of-view projector and a computer. Together, they can cover an entire room or focus on one corner.

This amazing technology will be showed at this week’s Association of Computing Machinery (ACM) Symposium on User Interface Software and Technology. At this point the company says that this just a proof-of-concept prototype and the research division is working on the sounds to  make the game more realistic.

For an example is there a river in the game you are playing the Room Alive turns the floor into a flowing river. This simple experiment implies the potential of the amazing gaming product. Let’s wait to see what are the other features ready to mesmerize us.

Lamborghini has been the pioneer among the automotive manufacturers and is a leading auto technology giant. It has been concentrating on making the cutting edge auto technology in terms of potent powertrains and lightweight materials. Lamborghini has introduced its new concept Asterion. It is a plug-in hybrid concept. The first from the car manufacturer.

The competitors McLaren and Ferrari have introduced their hybrid flagship models at last year’s Geneva Motor Show. In Paris, Lamborghini presented its very first hybrid, 910-hp plug-in with more than 30 miles (50 km) of all-electric drive range.

The power offered by Asterion is almost the same as the LeFerrari and McLaren P1, but its plug-in hybrid drive provides a respectable all electric-range of 30 miles.

The concept is also a parallel hybrid, with an electric motor bolted onto the transaxle that incorporates a starter motor and generator. Two other motors are located on the front axle, altogether they contribute an additional chunk of energy worth 220kW, equivalent to almost 300bhp.

Like the Porsche 918, the Asterion has four wheel drive. There’s no mechanical connection between the front and rear axles. The batteries of this beast live in the central tunnel where you would normally find a propshaft. This adds to the safety and car’s center of gravity.

Talking about the interior, the Lamborghini has lovely cabin. It features ivory leather, for a more luxurious atmosphere, as well as aluminium, forged carbon and titanium. The interiors also provide more storage space.

It presents three drive modes for the user- zero (for full electric), I (for ibrido), and T (for termico) via buttons on the steering wheel. Also a detachable tablet handles the Asterion’s infotainment, climate control and GPS function.

This definitely marks new history for the company, will it be the hybrid everyone wants? We have to wait to find out.

The deal of the century, Facebook-WhatsApp, has finally got an okay nod from the regulatory of Europe. With the FTC approving this deal April and with the recent approval the deal should finally wrap up as soon as possible.

This $19 billion acquisition of the messaging app WhatsApp by the social network giant Facebook is the biggest in its history. This approval from the Europe regulatory rises concerns among the fellow competitors which think that this partnership of the messaging app and social network poses problems for their future.

The regulatory commissioner Joaquin Almunia said in a statement that they have carefully reviewed this proposed acquisition and come to the conclusionthat it would not hamper competition in this dunamic and growing market, and the consumers will continue to have a wide choice of consumer communications apps.

The European Commission also  found that Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp are not close competitors. This deal has already received approval from the Federal Trade Commission this past April.

WhatsApp had plans for improving its services to the customers by not being just a mobile messaging app. It reportedly plans to add free voice calling services to its app later this year, which could be a stiff competition for the already existing calling services. However, the EC did not address this issue in its statement.

Meanwhile the internet giant Yahoo has confirmed that it has acquired the startup MessageMe, a service similar to WhatsApp. It will be shutting down the messaging service and the eight members staff of MessageMe would join Yahoo to work on mobile communication products for Yahoo.

For all the Apple fans this is happy news, on the iPad front. According to the reports Apple has planning to conduct its second launch event for its new line of iPad and Mac. The venue for this launch may be its headquarters in Cupertino, Calif. The date reported by Recode has been accurate for the iPhone launch in the September. There has been official date declared by the company but from the valuable resources the Recode has reported the date to be October 16.

Apple has declined to comment on these rumors about the launch date. If launched, the launch would come about a month after Apple showed off its new iPhone and the first wearable from the company.

Apple this year is expected to launch its new iPads and its Mac OS X Yosemite software for its computers. The company has revealed the same at its worldwide developers conference in June. Also the tech company can introduce new Mac computers including the new iMacs.

Reports say that the launch event may also host the gold option iPad as well as the Touch ID fingerprint sensor found on iPhones since last years’s 5S.

Apple’s iPad launched in 2010 has completely changed the way the computing is handled. The portability and the ability for multi tasking and storage has made this device to be one of the most demanded and appreciated devices of the century.

Apple iPad is the second largest money maker for the company after the mobile iPhone. About 15 percent of total revenue coming from the tablet to the company. The different variants and features have added to the demand for the tablet.

The recent revelations from the reports of The Wall Street Journal indicate the break up of Hewlett-Packard business sectors. The business would be segmented into two, one focusing on PCs and Printers and the other on corporate products and services.The new HP PC and Printers division include PCs, tablets, printers and other accessories.

HP, the world’s-second largest PC vendor after Lenovo, has taken this decision and the move would be announced as early as this Monday according to the sources of the Journal who are ‘familiar with this matter’. This split would help HP to regain the top spot in its business segments and to increase the value of the company.

The split of the HP into two sectors has been the most contemplating issue for HP and its investors, and there has been put a lot of effort and thinking in making this decision, says the Journal.

CEO Meg Whitman said “We are gradually shaping HP into a mor nimble, lower-cost, more customer-and partner-centric company that can successfully compete across a  rapidly changing IT landscape” after the company’s second quarter earnings were released in May. This was an indication for the split up.

Mr.Whitman would be the chairman of the new PC and printer business and chief executive of the separate “enterprise company,” while the board member Paticia Russo will be chairman of the enterprise company. Don Weisler, the current executive vice president of HP’s printing and personal systems group will step in a s CEO of the PC and printer business, according to the Journal.

This move wasn’t the first time HP has attempted to jettison its PC business. Earlier attempts where rejected by the investors and Whitman reversed the decision and began a “multiyear journey” to revive HP.

Kawasaki has been the top and most wanted brand in the motorcycle segment. Driving a kawasaki superbike is a dream that every bike lover dreams of. Now Kawasaki creates history by introducing its new bike. It smashes the superbike class of motorcycles with 300 horsepower, supercharged Ninja H2R.

The Kawasaki H2 of the 1970s was 750cc, 3-cylinder, 2-stroke widowmaker with a reputation as one of the maddest things on two wheels. With such a rich history Kawasaki maintained its reputation in all its releases.

The hype these days is very common until the final product and many at times the hype is luring but the final product does not meet the expectations. But with Ninja H2R’s spec sheet was beyond our wildest dreams.

The 2015 Ninja H2R will beat the street motorcycles, which have taken a path towards 200 horsepower over the last few years, by almost a figure of fifty percent more.

The bike is supercharged with a massive 998 cc inline four cylinder engine. With such a magnificent engine this bike devil H2R makes 300 horsepower. To understand this amazing figure, in comparison with the MotoGP championship bike the horsepower of this bike is higher by good 30hp.

The company tells that this is a production machine and not some conceptual flight of fancy. The other specialty of this is that this is the only one from a major manufacturer to feature forced induction for many years.

However, this monster is not road legal, this a track special. This masterpiece from the motorcycle giant is going to be revealed at EICMA in November along side its roadgoing brother H2 which has the same supercharged engine, but with a slightly different state of tune.

The bike will be available in Kawa green. and care has gone into the design details. The bike looks like a premium product that’s beautifully engineered, and will likely be priced stratospherically and made in limited numbers.

Did you buy the most awaited phablet sized mobile from Apple, iPhone 6 Plus and are disappointed with the disfiguring of the phone because of the pressure of the skinny jeans? That really frustrating isn’t it? If you are one among the nine according to the company then you have got a ray of hope for replacement of your mobile.  The good news for the reported people is that you may be able to get a replacement, unless it passes the ‘visual inspection’.

The recent online chat with Apple’s support desk by TheNextWeb dealt with the bend problem of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. The support representative for the company gave a optimistic though not definitive answer for the problem of BendGate.

The Apple representative said that the company is taking this problem very seriously and looking into the details of the problem. He also said that there is a test called a Visual Mechanical Inspection that the device will have to pass. If it is within the guidelines, they will be able to cover it. If not the replacement would be a paid one.

Apple on last Thursday has downplayed the probelm, telling CNBC that it had only received nine complaints about the bending of iPhone 6 Plus devices. The company added that it is impossible to have such kind of problem if the devices is used normally according to The Wall Street Journal. Apparently, using the device normally does not mean putting it in your back pocket and then sitting on it for 18 hours!!!!

Meanwhile Apple had to also deal with the problem with the first update to iOS 8 as it had killed their cell services and broke Touch ID. Apple has pulled the update and released a step-by-step guide for reverting back to iOS 8. Late Thursday it pushed out iOS 8.0.2 to officially fix those and other bugs in previous update.

The courier company DHL has announced that it will begin using its drones to provide the delivery services to its customers. It is one among the top companies to announce the plan to launch drone-based delivery services. The Parcel service has announced the usage of unmanned DHL Parcelcopter to deliver pharmaceuticals from the German seaside village of Norddeich, across 12km (7.5 miles) of the North Sea, to the small island of Juist.

This drone based delivery takes places on days when the regular ferry or manned flights are not available. The company plans to deliver through this medium at once in a week after which, looking at the results, it might extend its services.

The Parcelcopter will take off, fly and land autonomously, beyond the line of sight of its mobile ground station in Norddeich. The administrators will monitor the flight continuously in real time via a long-range data link, and will contact the regional air traffic controllers constantly.

Going into the technical details the drone has been built by prohect co-partner Microdrones GmbH (the other partner is The Institute for Flight System Dynamics at RWTH Aachen University). The quadcopter itself weighs under 4kg and can carry a payload of up to 1.2kg. The copter can remain flying for 45 minutes continuously or at least 12 km. This means that  it need a quick batter swap before heading back to the mainland.

I will cruise at an altityde of 50 meters(164 ft) and speeds of up to 18 meters(59 ft) per second, depending on wind speeds.

For some time now it will deliver only high-priority pharmaceuticals, as opposed to other types of packages. The flights will continue for several weeks after which the long-term feasibility of the system will be assessed.

Bryn is on an adventure trip and his venture begins at Telluride as he meets his old friends John and Gabe Lifton. The Liftons have lived here for generations and know the place in and out. There’s something that Bryn would want to explore about this land and the Liftons prove to be good guides for him.

All three of them gear up for the exciting experience and Bryn is all ears when John and Gabe narrate the history of the place- from the time it was purchased by Gabe’s grandfather to the inhabitants of the place, their contribution in making what the place looks like presently etc. Bryn has had a good insight into the history of Telluride and there’s much more to be seen on the way. Quiet roads, tough terrains, lonesome travel- all this only adds more joy to Bryn, thanks to his Land Rover- his travel mate and the Telluride story is only the beginning of the feast for him.

On the way, he expects to find more such remarkable adventures. His journey to off beat roads is just another way of telling us that there is an endless list of things to look out for.

Twitter finally begins the testing ‘buy’ button after months of rumors and some tests by the company. This button helps to make purchases on the site.

Twitter has taken this step towards a larger strategy which the company is planning for engaging its users to buy things online. The users of twitter can shop instantaneously the products they follow. The company also is planning to extend this service in order to increase its revenue.

The buy button will help demonstrate the influence of a tweet in directly driving sales for businesses.

“In some capacity, we’ve been working on it since day one that i have been here,” Nathan Hubbard, the former Ticketmast CEO who joined Twitter a year ago as its first head of commerce, told in an interview. “I think you have seen us do a lot very quietly over the past year that informs where we are today”

Twitter, for this new shopping feature has partnered with Stripe, an online payment service, to process transactions. The company has entered this ecommerce world with promotions such as the facility to add products to their Amazon shopping carts by adding the hastag #AmazonCart. The promotion also includes the partnership with Starbucks to let customers buy a $5 gift card for friends.

This announcement from Twitter came in less than two months after Facebook began testing a “buy” button of its own. The company sees itself as a powerful platform for more spontaneous purchases and limited-time offers.

If the Twitter does well in the testing of the “buy” button the social network platform will emerge as a new e-commerce platform for immediate sales and offers.

On Tuesday Apple has launched its remarkable products such as the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, Apple pay and Apple watch. With its new products Apple has announced the discontinuation of its  revolutionary product iPod Classic.

The iPod Classic being the one of its kind technology developed by the company represented the line of iPod music players for a long time now. On Tuesday the product was quietly removed from the company’s products.

The company has been on the down-side in encouraging this music player. It was evident from the actions of the company such as no updating the player since 2009 and not mentioning about the product even at the iPod specific products.

The iPod classic has been the biggest of the music players from the company. It was unique in its shape with heavy build material and block type model, also it had the most amount of storage of about whopping 160 GB for music and videos. This storage can hold up to 40,000 songs, according to Apple.

It does not have the most attracting touch-scree which almost now all the devices have. Even without the modern upgrades it still is loved by many of the loyalists.

Hearing the news from the company the iPod classic lovers have bid adieu to the device on social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter . The users reacted with real emotion on the farewell to a “good buddy” and “old friend”. Some also mentioned that it has been the best device and bears a resemblance to the original and other early models.

Let’s be frank, Skype is fantastic for one-on-one interactions or discussing business amongst a small group of colleagues. The problem with Microsoft’s voice-and-video chat software appears when you attempt to do anything other than talk to a handful of people –it gets overwhelmed with messages and voices too quick for much sense to be made of the conversation.

Depending on your goals with an online business meeting, there are a handful of alternatives to Skype that’ll help you get the discussion or presentation done more efficiently.

Group Meetings and Presentations – ClickMeeting

When it comes to full-featured online meetings and presentations, ClickMeeting should be a top choice for professionals. Insofar as Skype functionality is concerned, ClickMeeting has it all and then some.

Featuring audio and video conferencing, moderated Q&As, private chat and full desktop sharing, there are still a ton of options that make ClickMeeting superior for business discussions than Skype. These include rebranded meeting and waiting rooms and instant translation of chat conversation. It’s this kind of flexibility that makes the software a champion when it comes to international business ventures.
Another significant aspect of ClickMeeting that makes it one of our favorites is the ability to integrate social and calendar apps into its usefulness. From sharing webinar information with Facebook and Twitter to scheduling and inviting through Google Calendar, the app assimilation makes setting up and managing meetings painless.

In-app viewer polling, post-meeting statistics and meeting recording options round out this robust replacement to Skype for businesses.

Off-Site Computer-Based Guidance – Mikogo

The name of Mikogo’s game is screen sharing. The program allows for one user, the presenter in our case, to take over another person’s computer (with permission from the other user, of course) to demonstrate precise steps. This is a great option for those who’re demonstrating new software or techniques to new users or off-site employees.
However, the rest of Mikogo’s conferencing features fall in line with most of what other online meeting programs do, including voice conferencing, whiteboard, mobile participation and more. Additionally, one of the problems encountered with the software was a small stuttering lag when taking over others’ computers, which was only a minor annoyance. Otherwise, the web-based viewing options and total remote PC control make Mikogo a go-to program for those of us who don’t want to spend an hour describing something that can be done in five minutes.

Quickest to Get Talking – Google Hangouts

For those times when you just want to use skype but others don’t have it installed, Google Hangouts will usually fill your needs and won’t require much setup. Since it’s likely most anyone you’re trying to do business with has a Google account, all they really have to do is head to the website and click “Get Hangouts” and use it either through Google+ or Chrome. It’s likewise available for install on mobile devices, as are Skype and ClickMeeting.

Another benefit of using hangouts is that it can be broadcast directly -and saved- to YouTube, allowing anyone to watch the replays later; which is great for any presentation that goes over non-proprietary instructional material. Beyond that, Google Hangouts doesn’t really offer much else. The only reason you’d really ever want to use it in a business setting is when you’re having a small conversation, others don’t have another chat program installed, and they already have an account with Google.

Otherwise, your online business communications should be well met with a combination of Skype and ClickMeeting with Mikogo taking the reins for very specific tasks. Whatever the case, good luck with your ventures!

Apple has announced the release of iOS 8 at the launch event Tuesday in Cupertino, Calif. The operating system goes live on September 17, two days before the company’s new phones go on sale.

The software is available for download for the iPhone 4S and above. This new software release marks the second major release of Apple’s mobile operating system under the guidance of head designer Jony Ive and new software head Craig Federighi.

The previous operating system iOS 7 had different typography and color schemes from previous versions of the operating system, along with a flatter design concept and added features like automatic updates, AirDrop and iTunes Radio, iOS 8 tkes Ive’s design efforts a step further.

The new operating system focuses more on functionality than visuals. With this new release Apple brings a list of features that many fave desired for years. This update tackles with long-standing issues with iOS notification system,software for managing files and devices and many others. It also extends its reach into the health and home-automation space with a suite of new “Kit” apps and developer tools.

The new addition to iOS 8 includes Handoff, which lets users start a task on an iPhone and then finish it on an iPad or Mac. iCloud Drive creates a device-agnostic way for users to store files. Also it features the new aspect of Apple’s Messages app, called Quick Type which is predictive keyboard software enhancement that will learn how you talk with different people to allow for quicker auto-correct and fill-out suggestions.

Users now can install third-party keyboards, and TouchID fingerprint scanning. Additionally, widgets from independent developers will be available for download from the App Store and will function within the Notification Center.

Along with the above mentioned features, Apple also launched two new initiatives, called HealthKit and HomeKit. HealthKit serves as a data center for health-related information. HomeKit provides a similar service for the smart home.

Microsoft To Acquire Maker of Minecraft, Mojang for $2 Billion http://gizmorati.com/2014/09/11/microsoft-acquire-maker-minecraft/ http://gizmorati.com/2014/09/11/microsoft-acquire-maker-minecraft/#comments Thu, 11 Sep 2014 15:32:16 +0000 http://gizmorati.com/?p=15600

It is reported that the tech giant Microsoft is in advanced talks to acquire the maker of the most interesting game Minecraft. The deal is worth more thatn $2 billion. The sources say that the move was intended to make the most popular games from this maker to be available for the computer giant’s family devices. Yet the sides have to work on many details and a deal could fall through, according to one of the people who spoke on condition of anonymity.

Acquiring the Minecraft would give the company a strong hold on the online world of games. This acquisition by Microsoft is unlike many of the start-ups purchased by big technology companies for billion of dollars because the main reason is that the blocky graphics of the game are crude by today’s standards of the modern games.

Markus Persson, the co-founder Mojang, the privately held Swedish company that makes Minecraft has said in the past that he did not want to sell the company. He also disliked the move to take money from outside investors for the company.

Mojang follows the old way of selling its game. It charges people to buy a copy. The price varies depending on which the game will be played. A version of Minecraft for Microsoft’s Xbox has topped the charts for best selling game for the console, yet it costs only $20.

Minecraft is not available on Windows Phone, the operating system which Microsoft has struggled to turn into a strong competitor to other operating systems.

After Microsoft made an initial offer for more serious talks between the sides, Mojang has hired additional advisers to assist in the discussions. Talks are continuing between them, and an agreement could be reached by the end of the month.

Apple events have been of military precision from its inception for introduction of its flag ship products like iPad and iPhone. The company has been responsible for the radical changes in the technology with its inventions. The company believes that its has did the same for the fifth time on Tuesday by unveiling Apple watch and new iPhone. Apple watch is the most stylish product from the company since it created the iPad in 2010.

The apple event hosted the announcements of two large screen mobiles and a new electronic payment system that allows its users to pay through their phones for their purchases at the stores. This new payment method, called Apple pay is the result of Visa partnering with the tech giant.

Both the new Apple watch and the Apple pay possess the capacity of changing the way things are seen. Through this remarkable products the company and its chief executive, Tim Cook suggest that it has the capacity to invent new products and new services that can define an industry.

Only change that can be observed under Mr.Cook leadership is that, the company is allowing the third party developers to penetrate into the mobile operating system than under Mr.Jobs leadership.

Apple has promised that the new phones will be out this month for the world to buy them. It says that this new Apple pay system will be operational in October. But sadly the Apple watch will no be in stores until the next year.

The event also revealed that the new operating system from Apple, iOS 8 would be available from September, 17. This update would be available for all the devices which can support this.

Talking about the smart watch from the company Mr.Cook has described that it will perform functions similar to those of the many wrist devices that Apple’s competitors have released over the last few years. But , as Apple demonstrated it, its does better than its competitors, with improved hardware and a software interface that looks easier to use.

The ultimate success of Apple’s smart watch and its new fine line products, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus and its lasting utility to users won’t be known for months or years to come. This apple event was the most anticipated event worldwide and hope the audience are satisfied with the new tech and gear from the tech giant, Apple.

Though the big Apple news item of the day had to be the debut of the groundbreaking Apple Watch, there was also plenty of other news to go around from the California computer manufacturer as well. What might that be, you ask? How about word of new iPhones, the release date for iOS8 and a new mobile pay system?

First, the new iPhones. Apple made it clear it is going after the likes of Samsung and its popular large mobile smartphone formats with the debut of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Dubbed as “the biggest advancements in iPhone history” and pricing at around $200 and $300 starting, respectively, both models will be available September 19 in the U.S. The biggest things to note here, all packaged up in slick new thin and seamless designs, are the 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch Retina HD displays. That makes these new models larger then the current iPhone 5 units, while at the same time sporting new “second generation 64-bit desktop-class architecture” that powers the pre-installed iOS 8 and offers very advanced HD camera and video functions.

Speaking of iOS 8, Apple said its latest mobile operating system will be available to those not purchasing an iPhone 6 as a free software update starting September 17. There’s a lot of new functionality packed into this new iOS, such as updated Messages and Photos features; predictive typing for Apple’s QuickType keyboard; Family Sharing, which keeps a group connected through a shared family photo stream and calendar; the Health app, which gives one a clear overview of health and fitness data; and iCloud Drive that allows for remote storing and access of files.

And, finally, there’s Apple Pay. Defined as “a new category of service that will transform mobile payments with an easy, secure and private way to pay,” it essentially allows one to pay through NFC technology a host of vendors such as the Apple Store, Bloomingdale’s, Disney Store and Walt Disney World Resort, Duane Reade, Macy’s, McDonald’s, Sephora, Staples, Subway, Walgreens and Whole Foods Market. It supports credit and debit cards issued by many popular banks, and is available on both the new iPhone 6 models and the Apple Watch through a built-in antenna design and dedicated chip.

It’s been rumored and talked about and may well be the most non-officially hyped product of 2014, but it also looks to be a new category killer stepping into the developing wearables tech niche. Apple is out now officially with word of its forthcoming Apple Watch, declaring it the computer maker’s “most personal device ever.”

The Apple Watch, which will be coming to retail and wrists everywhere in early 2015 for a starting price of almost $350, is designed to define a new generation of technology from the company in much the same way the iPod Click Wheel or iPhone Multi-Touch did for previous Apple offerings. An iOS-based user interface created for smaller devices will work with something being called the Digital Crown, which is being hyped by Apple as “an innovative way to scroll, zoom and navigate fluidly, without obstructing the display.” It will also serve as the Home button on the watch and provide an easy way to access that fun loving personal digital assistant Siri. It is, for all intensive purposes, the same side knob you would use on an analog watch to set the time and date.

There is a lot going on in this digital smart watch which, by the way, will be available in three different collections dubbed Apple Watch, Apple Watch Sport and Apple Watch Edition. With in them, for example, is something called Force Touch, “a technology that senses the difference between a tap and a press, providing a new way to quickly and easily access controls within apps.” This is joined by “Taptic Engine” and a built in speaker to quietly “enable an entirely new vocabulary of alerts and notifications you can both hear and feel.”

Apple is aiming to make its new Watch offerings not look too much like a calculator design, creating products available in two different sizes, 38 mm and 42 mm. They are crafted “from custom alloys of polished or space black stainless steel, space gray or silver anodized aluminum and 18-karat rose or yellow gold.” Also of note here is a range of watch straps that include leather and modern styles. Charging of the watch is done through “a unique charging system that combines Apple’s MagSafe technology with inductive charging for a quick connection that snaps into place.”

Functions of note for the Apple Watch, which features Wi-Fi 802.11b/g and Bluetooth 4.0 to pair with your iPhone, include Activity and Workout apps that help motivate you to be active by providing data from the accelerometer, a built-in heart rate sensor, GPS and Wi-Fi from your iPhone for information such as calories burned, brisk activity and how often you stand up during the day; 11 customizable watch faces that can display information such as upcoming events, moonphases or your activity level; messaging that can be started on the watch and finished on an iPhone; and digital payment of items like coffee through Apple Pay.

Should all of this not be enough, Apple is also opening up the Watch to developers through WatchKit, which will let them create new apps to further enhance your on-wrist experience.

Looking for a better high performance home audio experience? Harman Kardon thinks it may have what you are looking for in the form of two new wireless speakers and a special wireless adapter which can be used in tandem to turn your wired HD audio system into something you can enjoy in places where no wires can go.

What’s dubbed as the new Harman Kardon Omni system comprises three products: Omni 10 and Omni 20 wireless HD loudspeakers and the Adapt plug-in. Pricing at around $200, $300 and $130, respectively, these items all make use of Blackfire Research wireless media technology. At the heart of this is the Adapt, which plugs into your already in place audio equipment in order to make it Wi-Fi enabled and compatible with the speakers.

Making use of a special app, you can combine two to five speakers to create a multi-channel listening experience that can be placed in any room within range of the Adapt. Functions such as “One Touch Follow Me Audio” let one go from room to room with the same music follow you along, while another feature dubbed “Link Button Speaker Control” lets one cycle through multiple songs that are being played wirelessly before choosing to enter a “party mode” that plays the same music through all speakers.

Support for up to  24-bit/96kHz audio streaming is enabled through the Omni system, and besides the default app Harman is making available to control all of this custom applications can be added to extend the system functionality, thanks to an open programming interface being introduced to leverage third-party app development.

How much TiVo do you need exactly? The digital tech company, known for its pioneering digital video recorder technology, has since 1999 been slowly increasing the storage capacity of its popular set top box. They’ve now announced their biggest offering to date, capable of holding approximately 24 terabytes of programming.

Put another way, the new TiVo Mega is designed to host over 26,000 hours of standard definition television shows or 4,000 hours of HD. Why you would need this much capacity is beyond the mind of this mere mortal, but to be clear there will likely be plenty of TV watching junkies out there jumping at the possibilities. To help fill up that RAID 5 HDD storage as quickly as possible this DVR is equipped with six tuners, allowing you to record up to six shows at once.

Like other TiVos before it, the Mega model has many of the other features its smaller brethren share tucked into its user interface. This includes support for a range of streaming Internet entertainment services such as Netflix and YouTube; universal search across cable, video on demand and web apps; personalized suggestions on what to watch; editorial collections based on current events or categories and a channel guide with filters to more quickly help find what you want to watch.

Besides these features, the TiVo Mega comes with a full QWERTY-format slide out keyboard remote and support for a smartphone app that lets you manage the DVR remotely for functions such as scheduling programs to record. This product is expected to be available in the first quarter of next year at what’s projected to be a jaw dropping $5,000.

Have you ever wanted to have your name in lights? How about your tweet in a time capsule adrift in space? The latter is something you may very well be able to do shortly, courtesy of the folks at NASA. The U.S. government arm charged with exploring the depths of space is soliciting short messages from the public that could be placed in a time capsule aboard a spacecraft launching to an asteroid in 2016.

NASA said its Origins-Spectral Interpretation-Resource Identification-Security-Regolith Explorer, or OSIRIS-REx, is a spacecraft that will hopefully hook up with the asteroid Bennu in 2019, snag a sample from it and return that sample in a capsule to Earth in 2023 for detailed study. The mission, which is robotic in nature, will spend over two years at the over 1,700 foot asteroid as it spins through space.

As for what you can make the short message (images are being accepted as well) say in order to get the attention of the mission team, the topic needs to be about solar system exploration in 2014 and predictions for space exploration activities in 2023. It needs to be submitted via social media, according to NASA, by September 30, after which 50 tweets and 50 images will be chosen for the capsule.

Barring any unforeseen incidents, such as little aliens intercepting the capsule to study the thoughts of early 21st century humans in a time of short character communication, whoever is on the NASA mission team in 2023 when the capsule returns will open it to view the messages and images. These will be placed as well, at that time, online for the world to see, so make sure to bookmark the time capsule page to check it again early next decade.

There was a time not too long ago, at least according to tech years, in which Sony was the dominate force in handheld electronics. People would be in awe at the release of a new Walkman. That was until Apple came along with all of its iDevices. Now Sony seems content to trot along in the shadow of its rival, unveiling new media players it perhaps still hopes will one day top the sales charts. The latest thrown out there for your consideration is the Walkman NWZ-WS613.

Sony said the Walkman NWZ-WS613 digital audio player, which is waterproof up to 2.0 m depth for 30 minutes, is its latest generation offering that’s wearable and also doubles as a Bluetooth headset that you can pair with your favorite smartphone (cough, iPhone, cough) to hear music straight from. Should you instead want to hear tunes from your Sony player, fear not, as it will let you store music in its on-board memory that you can enjoy in a standalone fashion.

There are some interesting touches built into this digital Walkman, including a wrap around design that hosts special earbuds; a so-called “ring-type remote commander” that’s wireless, low power and controls music playback/lets one accept calls while on the move; support of AAC and apt-X audio codecs and support for a Sony app you install on your mobile phone that allows for control of compatible Sony audio devices.

As for pricing and availability, expect to find the Sony Walkman NWZ-WS613 at retail outlets beginning next month at around $160.

Facebook, the new home of every internet user has become the platform for sharing the videos and obtaining huge likes and shares. For instance Beyonce has posted a video of behind the scenes and preparations for her live performance last month on Facebook and YouTube. In the first four hours, Facebook users have hit the view 2.4 billion times whereas during the same period on YouTube it was played only few thousand times.

The above is one such examples to say firmly that Facebook has become the primary platform for sharing the video content online. Undoubtedly YouTube is the biggest online store of videos but the trend has been changing recently as users use this social network for their videos.

For celebs and other important personalities, fb.com has become the sole platform to communicate content to fans and receive their love through likes and shares. The followers see the video and share the same which in turn gets more shares and finally increasing the number of views. The news feed of the social network has made the content circulation more rapid than ever and to any corner of the world. This content sharing also helps in marketing and making money out of the ads posted on the video page.

According to stats, Facebook has served up an average of a billion video views a day, a two-thirds of them on mobile devices. About a hundred million new videos are uploaded every month.

Now, Facebook plans to announce some new tools for video publishers which helps them to monitor and improve the performance of the video content so posted. Most important tool being offered is the public counter which shows the number of times a video has been watched.

Hope this new tools helps the publishers to know the most trending genre which has been almost impossible till now.

The tech giants around the world have now aimed to make the home smarter with the smart devices so developed. The idea of Smart Home has been on the papers from a long time. The tech companies have been developing unique ideas to make the most use of the resources available to make the home a sweet and smart home.

The plans of the tech companies are on the show at the IFA consumer electronics conference, Berlin.

Tech companies such as Siemens, Bosch, Panasonic and Philips have introduced their new Internet-connected household products. The reception to these products is closely monitored by the likes of big tech giants like Google and Samsung as they have also jumped into this incipient in the recent months.

Despite the efforts from these electronics giants to make smart household products many of the consumers do not see the need for these smart appliances and connected devices. The new technology so developed by the companies often remain prohibitively expensive, this might be one of the reasons for the users reaction.

Consumers are being skeptical about these products. But on the other hand companies are planning to have an extensive research and aggressive marketing about their smart home devices. The analysts at technology research company IDC say that the companies are in a race to gain the market that could be valued at almost $9 trillion by the end of the decade.

Google has spent billions of dollars to obtain the smart-thermostat maker Nest Labs, while Samsung Electronics last month bought SmartThings, a start-up that makes accessories to connect home appliances. Adding to this, Apple has announced its plans to allow its devices to control everything from heaters to light bulbs through new software called HomeKit.

The competing interes in home appliances may lead to unexpected problems. Let us all wait and see till what extent are the smart home appliances penetrate the smart devices market.

To improve the machine’s ability to see the world around has been the challenge for the computer scientists. This is possible with more accurate mathematical calculations involved in the large scale visual recognition. This improvement was visible in contest results released for the annual challenge to measure improvements in the state of machine vision technology.

The Large Scale Visual Recognition Challenge this year was actually started in 2010 by Stanford, Princeton and Columbia University scientists. This year the contest drew 38 entrants from 13 countries. The groups use advanced software to detect, locate and classify a huge set of images taken from Internet sources like Twitter.

The programs so developed by the groups would run them on high-performance computers based in many cases on specialized processors called graphic processing units.(G.P.U).

The results revealed that in this year competition the accuracy of the output has almost doubled and the error rates have been cut in half when compared to the previous results, according to the organizers.

“This year is really what I consider a historical year for the challenge,” said Fei-Fei Li, the director of the Stanford Artificial Intelligence Laboratory and one of the creators of a vast set of labeled digital images that is the bases for the contest. “What really excites us is that performance has taken a huge leap.”

The accuracy has taken higher steps in results of the competition held in 2012 and this year says one of the organizers. This year the entrants are also provided with the option of disclosing their algorithms which could make their research a commercial product.

Machine vision has countless applications, including computer gaming, medical diagnosis, factory robotics and automotive safety systems.

This year almost all of the entrants used a variant of an approach known as a convolutional neuraal network which helped in increasing the accuracy results from 22.5 percent to 43.9 percent this year and also the error rate fell to 6.6 percent from 11.7 percent according to Olga Russakovsky, a Stanford University graduate researcher who is the lead organizer for the contest.

This is phenomenal achievement in field of object recognition. Although this is prominent, the ability to comprehend the same in human language is even more challenging.

The CEO of this company believes that this would definitely benefit both the sides of the deal.

This buyout is just the latest of the president and CEO Marissa Mayer’s more than 40 buyouts since she took the position more than two years ago. Last quarter the display revenue of the company fell 7 percent from the same period last year clearly marking the decline of the advertising business. Yahoo has made this move to gain back the dominance in the online ad world which is now held by young competitors like Facebook.

The move also comes as Alibaba, the Chinese e-commerce company in which Yahoo holds a large stake, has announced to hike the upcoming initial public offering from $60 to $66.Yahoo will retain 16.3 percent stake after the IPO. The IPO is yet to come and Yahoo has a stake as large as 22.6 percent of the company.

The Chinese company wants to make an amount of $24.3 billion through this initial public offering. Yahoo could rake in more than $8 billion before taxes. The internet giant has promised to return half of the IPO proceed to shareholders. The remaining amount could fund other Mayer’s acquisition.

Over the internet nothing can hide from being hacked, The hackers always do find ways to hack the accounts using different techniques. This proves that everything over the internet is vulnerable and can be stolen or can be misued. Finding a hack-proof account will be a blind chase. If you have not found your to be hacked till now, god, you have been very lucky until. But there is always a possibility that any account can be hacked at any time.

In this few lines of the article i would like to give you three essential steps that keeps your account a little more secure than present. Although these steps do not guarantee you 100% safe account without getting affected by malicious data theft, following them would definitely make your account less vulnerable from the hacker attacks.

Don’t Resue Passwords

Reusing the password for lot many accounts the user has, is the biggest mistake of all. Breaking into using a remade key is difficult but if all the other locks also have the same key, it is feast for the robber. Same applies for the connected world and that is the reason why people rush to try the passwords on other sites if one service has a breach (say Yahoo or LinkedIn) . People use their smartness for their password schemes. Although it seems different password to them the small changes in the “same password” will be identified by the machine, if not by a human being.

Set Up Two-Factor Authentication

The two-step authentication is not as complex as it sounds. It is just that whenever a try to log into your account from a new location ( new computer, new location) is made this enabled service would send you a number that is used to authenticate the log in trial. The number would be a random 6-digit that would be sent to you as a message. Mostly it is set it and forget it service provided by the sites.

Use Password Manager

The password manager helps to create and manage your passwords. A good password manager would provide the user with strong passwords and manages them. All you need to remember is only the master password for the manager. All your passwords would be stored as encrypted message that can be unlocked only by the master password. Get the best Password Manager and be safe.

The IFA show this year has become the host of magnificent devices such as the smart watches, high end mobiles and tablets. The device also include the thinnest tablets and 2-in-1 PCs, many of them made possible by the Intels’s new low power Core M chips.

Intel first teased the world with its new invention earlier in the summer, in the form of a 7.2mm thick tablet that was even thinner than the iPas Air. Now this show exhibits so many devices and they are all going for their sales. Thin new adoption of this chip to the various devices explains the capability of the new Core M chips.

These chips fall in family of ” Broadwell”, the one after the current Haswell line. The Core M chip is the follow-on to a specific variant of Haswell processors, the ultra low powered “Y series” which are already used in 2-in-1 PCs. Core M chips promises faster performance and longer battery life.

Going into the technology of the manufacture of this new chips, Intel moved from a 22-nanometer process with Haswell to a 14-nanometer one with Broadwell. This special breed of chips are intended for a more thinner and lighter devices than the former devices. Because of this significant design change by the Intel the motherboard in the new devices alone is 25 percent smaller: the die size, meanwhile, is 37 percent smaller.

The company says that CPU performance is up to 50 percent faster, with Intel’s integrated HD 5300 graphics notching a 40 percent performance improvement. These processors also include Wireless Display 5.0; Intel’s Smart Sound Technology. This new tech helps the device to wake on voice. More CPU options will follow early next year, including some vPro-enabled chips for corporate-issued machines.

The Bose QuietComfort 25 headphones benefit from over 30 years of ongoing research, cancelling more noise than any other. Bose engineers have put lots of effort in developing this masterpiece. They have placed a microphone inside and outside which helps in improving the sensitivity and the measure of unwanted sounds.

The output of the measurements are sent to the microchip designed by Bose engineers especially for this purpose. This chip calculates a more precise equal and opposite noise cancellation signal, within a fraction of a millisecond.

The Bose QuietComfort 25 comes with a single AAA battery for up to 35 hours of use also usable after the battery dies. An inline remote and mic provided make it easy to attend the calls from iPhone, iPad models and select smartphones. The ear cushions are made of protein leather and earcups feature a soft-touch TPE bumper.

The Bose QuietComfort 25 comes in two variants in colour: Black or white, each with blue accents. It is priced at $299.95. It is available from September 3,2014, can be bought from the retail stores of Bose,Bose.com and authorized Bose dealers.

Adding to its arsenal Motorola launches its smartwatch Moto 360 Android Wear. Moto 360 has been the most discussed tech wear from Motorola. It has most awaited product of Motorola. The tech enthusiasts wanted to look at Motorola’s approach towards the smart watch category. It was the most exciting news from the tech giant when it teased the world with its smart watch new back in June. But now its gets even more exciting with the launch of the device.

The Hands on reveals that this is easily the most comfortable Android Wear watch yet. The feel of the watch feels great partially due to the leather strap and totally smooth-slightly rounded back of the watch. The comfort is increased by the absence of the metal dots that are present in the other watches for charging.

The display is at the high-end solidness with its solid hunk of glass. It is completely contrary to the thin and flimsy display of LG G watch and Samsung Gear Live. In fact you can tell that the glass is thick only because of the prism-effect at the edge of the watch when you look at it from an angle. The bezel around the glass is nice and thin made out of stainless steel. This thin border lets the user see all what is displayed.

There is distracting blank space at the bottom of the display and on questioning the representatives they have answered that it is where the drivers of the display are present. This is also the place where the ambient light sensor of the device is present, which is not present in the other smart watches mentioned before. This feature helps to see well in the daylight and also to save the battery.

It also has heart sensor which constantly monitors the heart rate. This app also lets the user know about his heart rate zone. This is better than many ways for monitoring health. The company says that its customers can expect updates and added functionality. The battery lasts for about 24 hours with the ambient sensor on.

The smart watch is priced at $250 from Google Play Store, Motorola.com, and BestBuy.com

It has been so far very good and lucky for the hacker community as they were successful in the massive breach at The Home Depot and mass celebrity photo leak. It is good for hackers and mark these events as a milestone in their line of work, but it is bad for everyone else. Hackers are now stronger than ever before breaching the most secure services. And this is why LinkedIn now creates three privacy features to protect user accounts.

LinkedIn has said it will introduce three tools designed to give users more control over the data associated with their accounts. These tools promise to keep the accounts more secure than before and will let the users know the details of the devices on which their account is being handled.

Users now will be able to see every device on which they are logged into LinkedIn to determine whether or not someone has accessed their account without permission. This can be done by going into settings and clicking on “See where you are logged in”. Users also can log out of any session remotely from within this tab.

LinkedIn list of new features also include the feature that allows the users to export all of their LinkedIn data including updates, activity, IP records, and searches. Users can access this information within the settings tab under “Download your data.” This data helps you to analyze everything you have done or not done in turn helping to determine if someone else has posted or searched your account.

Lastly another feature that LinkedIn has developed to secure the accounts is providing additional information to automated password change emails. Now, if the password is changed an email will be sent to the concerned email id which stated the details like date, time, device, browser, operating system, IP address, and approximate physical location in connection with the password change.

LinkedIn has updated these features for the global users and is asking them to check if these features are alive.

Wearable tech has been the field of geeks who want to have a great wearable tech with most functionality embedded into it. But how to tap the untapped market? This is most interesting question for the tech giants who produce and intend to produce dozens of wearable tech in short time span.

All the smart watches so released have been in the negatives when its stylish quotient is considered. For example the Pebble, its release in 2012 was greatly hyped because of its ability to show text messages and emails, but to the lovers of style it looked like a small kindle strapped to your wrist. Smart watches made by LG, Samsung and Sony are not any better with their cheesy leather or rubber strap.

But these ugly genre of watches are all set to change in future. According to a source who works at Apple as a designer, the most talked iWatch is going to be a trouble for Swiss watchmakers. This hints the change, but it is uncertain when this masterpiece from the tech giant is going to be launched.

On Wednesday, Intel, in partnership with Barneys New York and Opening Ceremony, unveiled a new wearable smart bracelet that looks stunning and all nothing but a gadget. This tech-piece is ready to set a trend in the wearable market. This partnership may prove to be the change talked above. Intel says that people especially women would be excited to buy this.

Intel’s smart bracelet is called MICA – My Intelligent Communication Accessory. It comes in two styles that are black snakeskin and pearls, and white snakeskin and obsidian. Both come with curved sapphire screen and built-in wireless radios. The smart bracelet looks absolutely amazing says a person who has seen them in real.

The company’s vice president is confident about the MICA smart bracelet and said that it would become an accessory that people will likely be proud to wear. Everyone but the Swiss watchmakers.
