Facebook: 1.01 billion and 604 million active members on the monthly mobile

On the occasion of the publication of its financial results for the third quarter cash, Facebook has released statistics that are worth a look on its users.

Regarding the financial aspect of the company Mark Zuckerberg has slightly exceeded analysts' expectations with a turnover of 1.26 billion and earnings per share of 0.12 dollars, while analysts were betting instead on a number of Affairs of 1.23 billion and earnings per share of 0.11 dollar ...

As for statistics, the social network has passed the symbolic threshold of 1.01 billion active members per month to 30 September 2012, an increase of 26% compared to last year. And Facebook has nearly 604 million members each month on mobile, with an impressive increase of 61% compared to last year. Finally, the social network identifies an average of 584 million active members per day in September 2012.

The latest available figures, and relayed on this blog at the beginning of October, reported a billion active members per month and 600 million on mobile. It is now possible that these statistics eventually stagnate, even though it is quite possible that the number of mobile users rises again with tablets flooding the market.

The iPad Mini and 4th generation iPad not compatible with 4G LTE

The iPad Mini has just been unveiled. A careful examination of its cellular connectivity demonstrates that it is not compatible with 4G LTE in France (and in many other European countries).

If the iPhone 5 is not compatible with the bands 7 (2600 MHz) and 20 (800 MHz) of the 4G LTE allocated to French mobile operators by ARCEP, the iPad Mini is not either.

In the specifications for cellular connectivity is discovered that Apple has made ​​a substantial effort (compared to the iPad 3rd generation). The iPad 3G/4G Mini comes in two versions: A1454 A1455 and. The model A1454 is compatible with the bands 4 (AWS) and 17 (700b MHz) while the version is A1455 with bands 1 (2100 MHz), 3 (1800 MHz), 5 (850 MHz), 13 (700c MHz) and 25 (1900 MHz).

4th generation iPad is also being unveiled is also available in two versions (for model "WiFi + cell") and A1459 A1460. Both versions have the same accounting respectively 4G LTE A1454 and A1455 versions of the iPad Mini. They are not compatible with 4G LTE bands allocated.

There remains only one hope with the re-farming of band 3 (1800 MHz), which allow mobile operators have space in this band for use of 4G LTE (instead of GSM).

However, it should be noted, however, that the iPad Mini and 4th generation iPad is compatible with DC-HSDPA.

The iPad Mini is now a reality and a new iPad

We waited as the highlight of the show offered by the keynote and it has been announced. It is the iPad Mini, Apple's response to Google and Nexus 7. The firm at the apple has also not denied on several points compare to the iPad Mini (forgetting, however, that the price of the Nexus 7 is less than $ 80).

The iPad Mini declined in two colors (black or white) is characterized by a screen of 7.9 inches with 1024 x 768 pixels, 163 ppi (Retina Display not so). Size that is easy to remember because the iPad "classic" has a 9.7 inch screen, two digits reversed for "move" from one size to another.

An inch larger than the screen of the Nexus 7 which, according to Apple, makes a difference and contributes to ease of use. The usable area of ​​the screen is so much higher (3/2 larger) on the iPad Mini on the screen of the Nexus 7. According to Apple, the 4:3 screen also helps to show more content on the screen making it (in landscape mode) surfing on the internet much more comfortable.

He joined the A5 chip (not the A6 as in the iPhone 5 or even the new iPad A5X) has Lightning connector (like the iPhone 5 and the new 9.7-inch iPad also unveiled) a FaceTime HD camera with 5 megapixel sensor and has 4G LTE connectivity and a WiFi n on 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz. It is characterized by a thickness of 7.2 mm and a weight of 308 grams (312 grams for the WiFi version + cell). Apple indicates that Smart Cover will be available (with more green model). Finally, add the iPad apps are compatible with the iPad Mini.

The 4th generation iPad ships A6 SoC (like the iPhone 5), which translates into power twice the CPU and GPU. Autonomy is 10 hours and receives a 720p FaceTime HD Camera. Dock 30 pin connector is replaced by a Lightning.

The iPad Mini is available in six versions (16 GB, 32 GB and 64 GB WiFi but 3G/4G/WiFi). Versions For WiFi, the price is $ 329 (16GB), $ 429 (32GB ) and $ 529 (64GB).

Apple will continue selling the iPad 2 (WiFi version for $ 399), while the fourth generation 9.7-inch iPad displays a rate of $ 499 (price unchanged to the new iPad unveiled earlier this year).

Apple Announces MacBook Pro 13 inch Retina Display

After Tim Cook, Phil Schiller is mounted on stage to present a new MacBook Pro. And not just any model because it is a model with resolution Retina Display.

MacBook Pro 13 inch in its declination is the most sold models in the range. It therefore seemed logical that Apple offers a version with display Retina Display.

On its 13.3-inch screen, it displays 2560 by 1600 pixels, or 4,096,000 pixels, which makes the laptop with the second highest resolution after the ... MackBook Pro 15-inch Retina Display.

It has two ports Thunderbold, USB 3.0, HDMI output, an SD card reader, but lost its optical drive.

Display side, Apple says 29% more contrast compared to previous models and 75% reflected light within a viewing angle of 178 degrees and a brightness of 300 nits.

It can integrate up to 768 GB of flash memory (SSD) but come with 128 GB in its minimum configuration.

Its battery ensures an autonomy of 7 hours.

It also features 8GB of RAM and an Intel Core i5 or i7 (Ivy Bridge) Dual Core.

Connectivity side, we find the Bluetooth 4.0 and WiFi n.

The first model is 1699 dollars while a second more powerful version is proposed to 1999 dollars. Apple announced that it is now possible to order.

The conference live from Apple's Safari browser

By a little more than two hours, Apple will begin his keynote during which we should discover the iPad Mini and possibly other products.

We have seen that Apple TV owners will be able to view it live on their HDTV. The information is now confirmed on Apple's site.

But the Cupertino company has decided to extend this opportunity to all owners of iOS devices: iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch. This requires that the device is running iOS 4.2 minimum .

Finally, if you have a Mac running Mac OS X 10.6 minimum (condition probably need to install version 4 (minimum) Safari), you can also view it from the Safari browser. To do this, you must have the version 4 (minimum) of Apple's browser . One can also imagine that it should be possible to watch it from any PC if Safari v4 (at least) is installed or another browser "modern" (Chrome, Firefox, IE ...).

A radical change in communication since Apple since 2010, it is not possible to see the live keynotes from Apple.

For now, the Apple online store is closed, the history of the "achalander" with new products that will be presented at the end of the day. The star should be the iPad Mini, this iPad with 7.85 inch screen probable. Tim Cook dared a format that Steve Jobs had yet relayed to the rank of ridicule. Many questions are now focusing on these characteristics and prices.

A fair price could be at $ 330 or $ 350 (for the least expensive model), that is to say between those battery of the iPad and iPod Touch. However, if the first model includes only 8 GB of internal memory, you can also expect it to be lower.

The keynote is expected to see a MacBook Pro 13 inch Retina Display (only one 15-inch model is now available with Retina Display screen). Finally, Apple has also in its cartons a new Mac mini and a new line of iMac.

Many presentations of new devices that could potentially dilute, if confirmed, the effect of the announcement of the iPad mini.

See you on the URL to 19 am, French time, from your web browser Safari (version 4).

For Windows users, go to this URL to download the latest version of Safari (version 5.1.7 dated 9 May 2012). Other browsers should also do the trick (if the installed version is newer) .

The application mix edjing arrives on iPad

The application of edjing mix, which is already a hit on iPhone , now arrives on iPad with new social features.

Edjing, or how to become a DJ with a free application. The French start-up founded in 2009, has launched its iPhone application last March that works very well with over half a million members worldwide and over 2 million downloads in four months.

For those who want to discover the joys of mix or impress evening edjing is a fun and easy tool with DJ effects of semi-pro, social functions but not only. Finally, the application also includes handy features recording or previewing.

edjing for iPad provides including the ability to share his musical compositions on Facebook with the "fMix." Your friends can listen liker mix or comment directly on the social network. New quasi-professional effects have also been introduced, it is the case of "Reverb" which adds a resonance effect in the mix.

I imagine that the iPad app is easier to use than the iPhone because it can not be easy to use a mixer, with all the effects and settings on a smartphone screen. Strongly that happens on Android!

Conference on the Apple iPad Mini live on Apple TV

As of 19 pm today, follow-Lemon Press Conference Live from Apple. However, do not expect a replay of the event on video. Apple has a habit of charging event for those who want to get there a few days and then post the video on its website.

But this time, the firm at the apple could have pushed habits with a live broadcast for a select few only, owners of Apple TV.

Thus, according to Macrumors, a new icon named "Apple Events" appeared on the menu of the Apple TV. It comes in the form of an invitation to see the press conference live from 7:00 p.m. today. Remains whether the option is open to all owners of Apple TV in the world or whether it will remain confined to U.S. users.

Used the plural for "Apple Events" suggests that it is the first time that Apple conference is broadcast live on the Apple TV, it should not be the last time.

Precisely, the last time Apple released a live keynote was in 2010 for "Back to the Mac".

The event is of great importance to Apple in addition to the iPad Mini could reveal a new iPad connector Lightning and a MacBook Pro 13 inch Retina Display, a new Mac mini and maybe even a new iMac line.

The iPad Mini made its debut at 19 hours in the market shelves. After many rumours  Apple finally unveils its new product. We suggest you follow the keynote live.

The Internet will finally know the true features of the iPad Mini. According to rumours  Apple revealed the features of the new tablet. Fans expect a smaller size of 7.85 inches. An effective concept to compete with tablets already on the market such as the Kindle Fire Amazon or Google Nexus 7. In terms of design, concepts reveal an aluminium hull with a metallic colour  others offer carbon fibre with a dark coating. In all cases, the Cupertino company wants to keep some consistency in its catalog, the design should be closer to that proposed by the latest Smartphone.

Only certainty, the iPad Mini will have the new connector Lightning already present on the iPhone 5. In terms of features, Apple has kept the secret. The keynote will shed light on these mysteries. Relying on the invitation sent last week, the company may decline the tablet in several colours by taking the concept of the iPod Touch.

During this conference , we will also know the prices charged. The latest rumours suggest a marketing between 249 and 649 euros. Four storage capacity should normally make their appearance (8, 16, 32 and 64 GB). For connectivity, the BBC revealed that Apple only offer WiFi, although a screenshot shows the opposite.

iPad Mini: The keynote to follow live on Apple TV

The keynote of Apple will be broadcast on the Apple TV. A reader pointed out this morning, in fact you can see the logo appears "Apple Events". The conference this October 23 will be broadcast live from 19 hours.

If Apple made ​​the approach to offer the keynote on television, it is possible to imagine that it will be released on iTunes or on iOS devices running. This is not the first time that the Cupertino company offers this concept. Indeed, three keynote was shared with the public, it was enough to connect to iTunes or via a smartphone to access. This method is effective, it will reach a maximum of users. The presentation of the iPad mini may well be followed by many fans in anywhere. For the moment, no official information has been forwarded by the company.

Unlike the previous keynote launch of the iPhone 5, which was held in San Francisco, the keynote of the iPad Mini will take place in San Jose, the heart of Silicon Valley, not far from the headquarters of Apple Cupertino.

Obviously, for each event as the launch of a new Apple device, nothing is known officially, and we can only rely on rumors and other information via leaks from different suppliers and manufacturers.

We already know a lot about the iPad Mini, which - unless one is dealing with bigger bluff of Apples history - should be a tablet with a screen of 7.85 inches would have preferred 7 inch short) with a screen resolution of 768 x 1024 (like the first iPad), and it should be equipped with the famous lightning connector. If all this is true, it remains an open question, as I have not seen addressed anywhere: what about the applications on this new format? Will we install versions iPad or iPhone? For media apps like Flipboard or reading, you must admit that the question makes sense, as the iPhone and iPad versions are different.

The keynote should also be an opportunity to introduce other new Apple. We talk about different products covered by an update or new version, including iPad 4, but on the latter I believe medium.
