Latest Event Updates
You do not have to be a rocket scientist to know even without looking that iPad Air 2 is on the top of its class, do you? When Tim Cook says that this is a piece of magic glass, we have no reason to question his judgment. Yet, Apple may have a tiny problem here. Something we have already seen in the iPhone 6 bending story.
The iPad Air 2 greatest advantages are at the same time its most serious weaknesses. With its weight of fascinating 450 grams and only 6,1 mm of thickness, it is extremely suitable for the bending trouble. On the other side, it is highly unlikely that you would put the iPad Air 2 in your pocket. Right?
Yet, we have to ask a simple question. What if the iPad Air 2 ends up not it in the wrong, but in the strong pair of hands? We sure hope this is not going to transform itself in some kind of a bend-your-iPad challenge, is it? Or, maybe Apple has really pushed the limit of the acceptable thickness?
On the other hand, there is one thing you cannot bend so easily, and that is its price. It moves from $499 to $699 depending on the available memory, you are willing to acquire 16GB, 64GB, or 128GB. Let us see what is going to happen. One thing is more than certain. Apple has had enough of bending troubles, hasn’t he?
Here is what happens when you use Google Glasses 18 hours a day. You end up in the clinic for addiction problems. The doctors are confused. Which method to apply in order to fight this unusual addiction? Eventually, they have figured out the alcoholism addiction techniques are the most suitable ones.
So, what went wrong for this Google Glass fan? It is more than obvious that he was enjoying it too much for a normal human being to handle with no consequences. He reported being able to dream in vivid colors and pictures absolutely identical to those you can experience when using the Google Glass.
He had a feeling that he cannot make it without the Google Glass. That was the moment he realized that his problem was a serious one. The next thing you know, he is already in the clinic. So, what is the moral of this story? We are not advising you against the Google Glass? Something else you should remember.
Use them freely, but not according to the addiction formula 25/8. The ancient Romans or Greeks, we are not quite sure, did not have a luxury of using the Google Glasses. However, they knew to say when enough is enough. To know your limits is definitely a great virtue. Worth reminding that is for sure.
Who says that only Apple and Samsung know how to party in terms of merciless competition. This year has more than reason to be treated at the unprecedented one in the Chinese mobile market. The so-called “Chinese Apple” has finally claimed the mobile throne in its own home country for the very first time.
Yet, on the other side, it seems that Lenovo is not thrilled with the Xiaomi’s success. So, what they are going to do about it? Well, it is simple, and that is why it is so complicated. Lenovo plans to come up with the completely new mobile brand designed especially for the Chinese market. Why it is so difficult?
Our first concern is that Lenovo faces a danger of biting more than it can chew. Can Lenovo fight successfully on two very different and extremely challenging markets such as China and North America? As you already know Lenovo has acquired one of the proud mobile pioneers called Motorola.
On the other side, Lenovo has one of its business eyes focused on the BlackBerry in Canada. Do not forget the new smartphone brand for the Chinese market. Is this too much to ask even for Lenovo itself? We will find out first-hand soon enough. In the meantime, Apple and Samsung can take a break.
Who or what is Firefox Hello? That is Mozilla’s Skype. Do we really need one more Skype in an endless sea of more or less similar apps? Well, it seems that there are some busy little bees in Mozilla, who have decided to offer something different and interesting at the same time. So, what is Firefox Hello all about?
Imagine a chat or call feature integrated into your Firefox browser. Would not that be a lovely thing to have and use? No need to log or install a special app. Now, you got the whole picture. This kind of a Hello can really shake the IT ground. You are offering something, which is simpler to use.
You do not have to guess twice that Microsoft is not going to be thrilled with this sudden and quite an unorthodox competition. This is undoubtedly an intriguing and original concept. Let us wait and see, how it is going to work in the real cyber life. There are quite a few practical questions to be solved.
How you are going to contact your friends? Can you save your conversations? There are so many things we are eager to test ourselves. Either way, this is a strong encouragement for all of you dreamers out there. Who could have thought that it would be possible to talk and chat in your browser? Keep dreaming.
The world of smartphones is an endless ocean, where almost anyone can find his goldfish to grant him much than three wishes. This is not a joke, and it is far from a simple exaggeration. All you have to do is to play smart and be extremely focused. It seems that this formula perfectly works for the Omate brand.
We are talking about a smartwatch, which is not particularly smart. At least not in the terms and features of the Samsung Gear and iWatch. However, this one is perfectly suited for women. The Omate smartwatch comes with the impossible to resist design for women. You got that as soon as you see it.
The features are only formally compatible with the smartwatch category. Although, it is fully compatible with both Android and IOS, it can provide you only with the simple notifications and a little bit upgraded functions in comparison with the regular watch. One more time, it is designed for women.
What is that supposed to mean? With all due respect to all ladies out there, this one is supposed to be likeable to your eyes, primarily. In plain English, the Omate focuses on the gorgeous ladies, rather than to rocket scientists and IT geeks. If you can live with it, then this is the right choice for you.
Sometimes you cannot avoid a serious confusion. Those merciless IT analytics messing up with our lives. On the one side, we have dark predictions that the PC industry is at the very edge of extinction. On the other, we hear some voices that there is a surprising growth of almost 10%. Why is that a surprise?
Well, it is pretty much obvious, isn’t it? We live in the mobile world. Who need a PC, when you can carry it with you in your pocket? It seems that grandpa Microsoft strongly disagrees. We have to thank Microsoft for ensuring this positive survival percentage for the shaken PC industry. What is the catch?
If you can manage to offer a configuration, which costs no more than $250, then Microsoft can jump in with the Windows 8.1 and an integrated Bing browser. The message is clear. If you can do something about your own costs, then Microsoft can be a little bit generous when it comes to the licensing.
Finally, some reason in the difficult situation. Microsoft does not want to end up like the dinosaurs. It is going to fight back, no doubt about it. For what is worth, Microsoft can afford itself a luxury of being generous in all of its wealth. Better to keep something, than to profit on nothing. Right?
Lenovo is dead serious about acquiring the BlackBerry. The first time, Lenovo announced its intention the Canadian Government had some serious concerns about the national security. Do we have to mention that for quite some time the BlackBerry has been the number one choice in the White House?
For what is worth, the times are changing, in an inevitable and unstoppable way. The BlackBerry has done its very best to survive in the new mobile world. We have seen the unusual Passport model. That was a nice shot worth of admiration and our sympathy, but at the end of the day we were back at the beginning.
Once upon a time, the BlackBerry was the primary business choice in the USA where one in two mobile phones had a logo of this respectable Canadian mobile pioneer. It turns out that Lenovo has become the collector of the famous names from the dawn mobile phones such as Motorola and BlackBerry.
We sure hope that Lenovo is not only after the BlackBerry’s mobile patents. This is a sad fate of Nokia and Motorola. On the other hand, the mobile patent incomes Microsoft gets from Nokia reach almost one billion dollars on a yearly basis. Lenovo is up to its second win-win takeover in the mobile world.
