Apple Plans parodied with Hunger Games and Batman

Apple Plans is the application that makes the most about her since her commissioning. The bugs are numerous and it gave some ideas. The mapping system is parodied with Batman and Hunger Games. The result is quite nice.

Apple Plans application is about her, but because of many bugs. Sometimes the world turns into a video game , because the application revisits the bridges, the provision of roads, and even the location of cities. The users therefore had many surprises in wanting to use Apple Plans. This misadventure was also experienced by Batman and Katniss from Hunger Games. The super hero tries to find in the second episode the woman he loves. The Joker gives an indication and is trying to find his way with Maps. The boards are not good and the end ends badly.

Microsoft launches Xbox Music tomorrow

Exit the Zune brand that has always seemed like a bad clone of iTunes (online and players included), now is Xbox Music , the new music service omnipotent Microsoft. This is after tomorrow it will first its debut on the Xbox 360 home console becomes the occasion for a little more of a media hub. Microsoft has decided to capitalize on the Xbox and Windows brands.

Xbox Music is not iTunes (purchase songs or albums) or Spotify (streaming offer) or Pandora (streaming music via radio), it is all the time. The user will be able to buy songs from a catalog of 30 million tracks. Files are DRM-free and encoded at 256 kb / s. It will also be possible to stream songs unlimited (for now) but with audio and visual advertisements. Quality remains present as WMA files streamed are encoded at 192 kb / s. Microsoft will also offer a monthly subscription fee of $ 10 per month to get rid of this advertisement. Finally, radios organized around such musical genres as the Pandora service will also be offered in the tender Xbox Music.

The service will work on any computer or tablet running Windows 8 (or RT) on Xbox 360 and on smartphones running Windows Phone 8 . Recall that the commercial launch of Windows 8 is scheduled for October 26. Microsoft plans to preinstall Xbox Music in Windows 8. A new approach to risk alerting authorities to regulate competition (as was already the case with Internet Explorer preinstalled in Windows).

Music is a passport to anyone trying to mobility. Apple has been a pioneer in the field by making the purchase very simple music through the iTunes Store. The service was then allowed Apple to sell iPod. Google and Amazon have followed suit with their own fissa not music service associated with Android devices and Kindle.

Success will depend on the Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8. It can, however, already rely on the Xbox 360 sold 67 million copies worldwide. The catalog will also be an important factor: 30 million shares but absentees like the Beatles (catalog group bought by Apple). Microsoft also plans to launch next Xbox Music apps on iOS and Android.

However, the first flat since the service will not be available via Windows 7 (and through previous versions of Windows) and Windows Phone 7.5 (and what about Windows Phone 7.8?). However, the Zune Music service will be accessible (with the Zune client on Windows 7) with the same catalog as Xbox Music. But it will not be possible to use the streaming service free for those OS versions.

Finally, a cloud component will be added next year in Xbox Music.

On its website, Apple announces free replacement of Seagate hard drives may present failures. If you have an iMac 21.5-inch or 27-inch sold between October 2009 and July 2011, your Seagate 1TB may be faulty.

This is announced by the Cupertino company on its website , adding that she was trying to contact "  iMac owners concerned have provided a valid email address  "and allows those who are not contacted verify their eligibility for the program. Note that the iMac owners who have paid for a repair or replacement due to this problem can also contact Apple for a refund.

In addition, Apple recommends a replacement "as soon as possible". This program is not new, it is in fact an extension since it was launched in 2011 but covered only the iMac sold between May 2011 and July 2011.

This is not the first time Apple faces a replacement program for large, we remember that the end of 2011  Apple had acknowledged a manufacturing defect on one of its products namely the iPod nano 1st generation.

Finally, note that the program is valid up to three years after the date of purchase of the iMac or until the deadline of 12 April 2013. In the meantime, it is obviously advisable to back up important data on a physical media or why not, if Felix Baumgartner as you like clouds, using a wide range of services from storage in the cloud !

Motorola Razr i: smartphone with Medfield Atom arrives

Motorola unveiled the Razr i in September and is now announcing its availability in France. It is the first smartphone to carry a stamped Motorola processor Atom Medfield x86 architecture. Specifically, it is the SoC Z2460 Intel also found embedded in the Orange Smartphone with Intel Inside (read our article ).

Medfield at 2 GHz, screen "edge to edge" and complete specifications rather

However, Motorola says it is the first smartphone with Medfield 2 GHz (1.4 GHz against the Orange with Intel Inside). The SoC is supported by 1 GB of RAM, while storage is provided by an internal flash memory of 8GB and a microSD memory card slot is also present.

The terminal displays the qHD, that is to say 960 by 540 pixels on its 4.3-inch screen . There is a screen called "edge to edge" : the lateral edges are reduced to a bare minimum. In addition, the screen has a scratch protection thanks to its glass made ​​by Corning Gorilla Glass.

It shall have a main camera with 8 megapixel sensor with a burst mode at 10 frames / second. Intel had always communicated on the propensity of Medfield SoC to quickly process images with their ISP ( Image Signal Processor ), this little "brick" SoC, which gives the terminal which integrates the SoC propensity to rapidly acquire photos taken via the APN. The bandwidth of this circuit is 240 megapixel per second, or 30 frames per second for 8 Mpixels. In the state of optimization, the terminal is able to capture 10 per second, which puts at some DSLR. This technology in the chip Intel is inherited directly from the expertise of the Dutch company Silicon Hive acquired by Intel. The objective of the APN can also shoot 1080p.

Side connectivity, it features classic WiFi b / g / n, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS and NFC. Regarding the cellular modes, no 4G LTE or even DC-HSPA.

The Razr has a battery i comfortable 2000 mAh and runs on Android 4.0, aka Ice Cream Sandwich. It is regrettable in the case of a smartphone Motorola (Motorola Mobility has been acquired by Google). But it has at least a "sorry" the time required for porting to Jelly Bean x86 unlike other devices that run Motorola recently announced ICS but also as an embedded processor ARM architecture.

Motorola takes care to communicate the fact that the bootloader is unlocked (like the Razr HD). This allows the rooter and then install a ROM AOSP example, if you are not satisfied with the interface Motoblur Motorola. Finally, note that Motorola differentiates a strapping aluminum and Kevlar back giving it a very high resistance.

Official support for Google Android on x86

Beyond the full specifications of the terminal, it should be noted that the sign officially support Google Android Apps focused on x86 architecture. This is also the compatibility of some applications with Google Play devices with Medfield that question yet. Most of them are directly compatible with the x86 architecture. However, some incorporating native code compiled for ARM architectures are not.

Specifically, three cases are possible:

• apps developed with the SDK, from 75% to 80% of all the Google apps are natively compatible Play 
• apps developed with the NDK are not natively compatible with the x86 architecture. To this end, Intel has developed a software that automates the rewriting of ARM code to x86 
• Finally, some apps (eg the TegraZone) have been specially developed to take advantage of certain features of a specific GPU other than the GMA to Intel. These can then not be compatible

Galaxy S III Alpha: improvements from the Galaxy Note II

The Japanese will be entitled to a more powerful version of the Galaxy S III with the Alpha model. Its specifications are similar to those of the Galaxy Note II. For the occasion, it is incumbent mobile operator NTT DoCoMo who propose in December on the Japanese archipelago.

Internationale/GT-I9300 version (read our review ) was an opportunity for Samsung to introduce its new SoC into a finished product. The Exynos 4412 is built around a quad core Cortex-A9 architecture. If the latter is clocked at 1.4 GHz on the S III, it will be on 1.6 GHz Alpha S III as is the case on the Galaxy Note II has the same chip. Note the resemblance II who also goes by the amount of RAM: 2GB on it against 1 GB on international S III. Only with most versions of the 4G LTE S III have 2 GB of RAM, a built Snapdragon SoC with dual-core processor. Version i9305 S III has however Exynos 4412 SoC and 2GB (read our article ). However, its processor is clocked at 1.4 GHz.

The new version of the S III will be available in titanium gray and black sapphire. Remember. Samsung has introduced the new colors in late August: black sapphire is "  inspired stones used by the ancient peoples of India and Persia to protect themselves with the belief that they will strengthen.  "But if you won more titanium gray , know that "  expresses the feeling of modernity and wisdom providing futuristic element on the phone.  "And Samsung also specify that the gray comes as"  a symbol of intelligence, insight and curiosity.  "message fogged in a marketing campaign in which the philosopher's stone and the stones of Stonehenge have escaped our great relief.

Improved hardware with RAM and CPU frequency and cosmetics with color choices, but also software adaptations that make the Alpha S III rather attractive. It will have effect in Android 4.1, aka Jelly Bean, preinstalled instead of Android 4.0 (aka Ice Cream Sandwich). An update of the Android OS that comes with new features via Touchwiz. And multi-screen functionality present on the Galaxy Note II is also part of the Alpha.

Finally, there remain several outstanding issues regarding this enhanced version of S III. With the support of 4G LTE and its CPU frequency 14% higher, the Alpha S III may he not be cramped in its 2100 mAh battery? The dynamic power dissipated by a processor is proportional to the frequency. A 2400 mAh battery would have been minimal. Still, it is probably difficult to place in the same volume.

If the Alpha S III will land in Japan, Samsung did not say if it will leave then in other markets (Europe, USA ...).

iPad Mini and now the price?

The buzz is unpredictable. Who would have thought that the most credible rumor about the iPad Mini find its origin in Europe? After the various leaks, and the announcement of a probable keynote on October 23 for the presentation of the iPad Min i, here now new indiscretions from Cupertino or not a Chinese supplier, but a German blog.

The site MobileGeeks has a scan of what looks like a grid tariff describing no less than eight different versions of the iPad Mini with tarifsallant from 249 to 649 euros, depending on the memory capacity of the unit and its connectivity.

The pricing in question come from the group Media Saturn, which owns retail stores specializing in electronics and computer in several European countries, notably under the Saturn brand.

For those who are waiting for this new tablet eagerly hoping for a reasonable price, this could be a pretty good surprise, since the first model to come out 249 euros for a memory capacity of 8 GB ... Affordable price for an iPad, but that is still above the reference model 7 inches, the Nexus 7 , which embeds 16GB for the same price.

One other sources, always German splits even for a picture of the iPad Mini , which looks very much like a formal presentation Apple, the kind that could be found soon on the website of the brand to apple. Except that, as you quite rightly pointed out in the comments and on Twitter , the presence of the Google Chrome icon instead of the Safari Mobile on the bottom left of the screen in the dock makes this assumption unlikely and more like a snub or teasing from the designer behind this arrangement.

So, it only remains to wait for October 23 for confirmation of this. Or not.
