GTA 5: information on the "collector" versions

The delay of GTA 5 has some teeth gnashing and it is perhaps for this reason that Rockstar distills more information about his upcoming title. This time, the publisher wanted to shed light on both editions "collector" Grand Theft Auto 5, editions it is possible to pre-order now and that will give some very interesting bonus. Bonus "real" or "virtual" because it will also issue weapons, uniforms and additional vehicles, as well as some very interesting bonus. Needless to say, all the information that go are just a little later in the article, eh?

We must admit, at this time, means a lot to talk about GTA 5. Just last month, we were treated to three trailers featuring the three heroes of the game, or Michael, Trevor and Franklin. High colour video and also allowed us to better understand the personal history of these three thugs.

Today, Rockstar has decided to give a layer, this time, information on the two versions of "collector" of GTA 5. As often with titles so popular - and expected - that he, the editor has actually decided to launch no less than three different versions: a standard for players who do not necessarily want to empty their bank account, and two versions a little more "rich" and taking advantage of additional content.

These are the characteristics of these two special versions:

Special Edition - € 79.99: Contains artbook and a map of Los Santos in poster format, a plan that will no doubt soon to adorn the wall of your bedroom, your living room or office.
Collector version - € 149.99: This edition includes everything that can be found in the special version, with a few additions like playing in a metal case, a baseball cap and a pouch which can be locked.

Well, from this perspective, one might think that it's a bit of a scam, but be aware that these versions also incorporate a lot of bonus "in game". With them, each character will have their special ability bar to increase by 25% , a bar that also recharge 25% faster. In addition, players will receive new weapons, new outfits, new tattoos and even new vehicles.

Not bad, right? True, and if you are interested, know that both editions will be available for pre-order in the coming hours, all with delivery scheduled for September 17.

Xbox One: up to Xbox Live Gold subscription?

Until now, Xbox Live is declined in two distinct offerings: the Silver, to download demos and bonus and Gold, for the right to play in multiplayer. Thereupon, there was also a special solution for the whole family and to ensure that all players in a single household should buy all their subscription. Friendly, yes, but the Xbox One will change everything. If one believes Polygon, Microsoft would actually change strategy by eliminating altogether the offer dedicated to the family. And both say that this could have an impact for all players on Xbox officiating.

The first thing to know to begin with is that the Xbox Live Gold subscription will work as well on Xbox One on Xbox 360. If you decide to splurge on the new console from Microsoft, so you will not need to iron to the body and you can find your subscription, your profile and all related information. It was pretty predictable, but it will not fail to comfort all players who posed the question precisely.

Another novelty is the removal of the offer Xbox Live Gold Family. An offer that will disappear very soon in the intricacies of the "cloud" and will no longer be available at all. The question you should definitely ask yourself is whether it will be replaced by a new subscription solution and finally the answer is one word: no. Rest assured, however, because it does not mean that all members of your family gamers will purchase their own subscription. No, actually, once the offer is associated with Gold console, above all configured profiles can enjoy.

Xbox Live Gold: A subscription for the whole family

If you and your brother / father / mother want to play multiplayer on Xbox One, so you will have to pay one Gold membership will be automatically shared among all family members.

Here, one might think that Microsoft gave us a huge gift, and it may be the case, but it must nevertheless temper that good news since the company has not yet announced the price of its offer Gold, there therefore know how it will actually cost us and u will increase is perfectly conceivable . Especially when you know that Microsoft has invested in no less than 300,000 servers to support the launch of its new console, and allow players to compete in the best possible conditions. A significant investment, which will of course be profitable in one way or another.

Mailbox is now available on iPad

Mailbox caused a sensation at the beginning of this year and mail client designed exclusively for iPhone has attracted millions of users before being bought by Dropbox in March  this year. Nice, but the publisher of the application was a little further last month by announcing the imminent arrival of a specially optimized for the iPad, a version of which we have not heard since release. And indeed, if we talk about today, it is not for nothing, since the latter has just made ​​its debut on the AppStore. Mailbox is available on iPad now and no doubt this news should please a lot of people.

Level features, no big surprises, the iPad version of Mailbox aligns with the iPhone version. We thus find that interface if these famous stripped and multitouch gestures that have contributed significantly to the success of the application. In a few moments, it will be possible to archive your messages, remove them, add them to a list, or even create a reminder if you wish.

Tablet requires the application developers have obviously made ​​sure to adjust the resolution Mailbox and the size of the iPad screen. So it looks like any client of the same kind with a window divided into two areas: the message list on the left, the content of the messages right. At the top, on the left, we also find a button that allows us to access the different files in our account. In short, nothing new to that side, we finally found the same logic as for ergonomic Mail and all the other tools in the industry.

Anyway, this is a new step has been taken for the couple Dropbox / Mailbox and it will now be able to focus on new ports. Here, also, while we're at it maybe would not hurt to attack Android.

HTC Desire 600: It's official!

I have not had the opportunity to talk to you but they are no less than two new smartphones HTC who were "Leakes" on the web late yesterday afternoon, the 200 HTC Desire and HTC Desire 600. Two new terminals that would target the entry and mid-range, thus completing the offer of the manufacturer. But in fact, imagine that it took advantage of the calm early morning to lift the veil on one of these two mobiles, and more specifically on the HTC Desire 600. Great, of course, but be careful because it does not necessarily come out in all markets. That said, if you want to learn a little more about it, then know that you could not be better.

On the aesthetic level, the HTC Desire 600 does not look like the HTC One. It was to be expected, huh... well it is heavily in plastic and he enjoys relatively clean lines, but much less sexy than its big brother. On the front face of the terminal, can be of any self-note the presence of two colored liserets located on either side of the screen.

Okay, and then under the hood? Again, there is not enough to break a three-legged duck. Desire 600 and includes a Super LCD2 4.5 inches with a resolution of 960 × 540, a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor clocked at 1.2 Ghz 200, an 8 megapixel sensor on the back of the device and a second sensor 1.6 megapixel front, a sensor capable of shooting 720p. No word, however, on the amount of RAM or storage space onboard. It is also a shame. Besides that, the HTC Desire 600 will also benefit from the latest version of the overlay home and therefore the HTC Sense 5. All with BlinkFeed, BoomSound and Beats Audio bonus. Another feature new smartphone integrate two ports for SIM cards to allow you to jump from one subscription to another.

As mentioned above, the Desire 600 not out in all markets, at least not at first. If arrive in Russia and Ukraine from June, we do not know when it will be possible to enjoy the rest of the world.

Definitely an interesting way to learn the musical trend in your neighbourhood  but unfortunately there are times when the odd neighbour takes care to show your tastes blaring. I leave you with a video review of the application after the jump.

Microsoft updates Windows Phone version of YouTube, but it seems just to satisfy a portion of Google's requirements

Last week, Google was because Windows Phone version of the YouTube terms of service violation causes letter require Microsoft will be applied under the frame , and also bluntly Microsoft in May 22 must be stopped before its installation and make the appropriate correction. Today, time is up, modified, such as about the new version also re-appear in the software shops.

But it is worth mentioning that, although Microsoft has removed the download video feature (previously installed legacy applications users will also not be able to download the video), but the problem is a major focus: Advertising still does not appear in the new version of applications. Microsoft is only mentioned in a press release on their own "equipment limited video" and "off-line video" function has been modified, and that "together with Google's YouTube for users to create a great experience." And Google aspects have yet to comment on the matter for I do not know that they will not ask Microsoft recycled remake it?

iPhone 6: still a new concept

The iPhone 6 seems to fascinate our creative and so we have seen passing over the past few weeks a number of interesting concepts all over each other friends. This time it is Uygar Kaya and Ran Avni who tried to imagine what might look like an upcoming Apple smartphones, and the pair have made a nice video to illustrate their vision and all that it should appeal to some of you.

What is interesting with this concept is that it does not look like the previous iPhone products by our friend the bitten apple. We are thus faced with a smartphone built entirely around a metal frame that goes on the top and bottom of the screen, a metal frame that includes the various buttons on the terminal, but his microphone. All in an extremely thin case.

Well, but that's not all because our designers have also integrated on each side of the iPhone 6 LED notification can alert the user when receiving a call or even a message, and also visually represent the state of charge of the battery. The result was not lack of interest and say that this is typically the kind of feature that could improve our lives. With this kind of LED, it would be possible to know the state of our smartphone without having to unlock it, or even take it in hand.

Our two guys are obviously not stayed there. Like the Sony Xperia Z, the iPhone 6 has been designed to resist water and dust. Better, the terminal also embeds a wireless charging technology similar to that found on the latest Nokia Lumia.

Finally, the only thing that can be blamed for this video, it is undoubtedly the pace a little too slow.

A wonderful concept Nintendo smartphone

Nintendo , it's not really right now. If the 3DS has sold quite well, it is quite another for the Wii U and it is all the more worrying that it had no real competitor in front so far. What will change soon with the launch of the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. And if we add to this the explosion of smartphones and tablet PCs, it is said that the Japanese giant is likely to have trouble keeping his footing. The solution, finally, it might be that he is interested in other markets and creative T3 must be thinking the same thing since I have developed a wonderful concept featuring smartphone Nintendo.

We must admit, this concept should appeal to many. On the question of design, T3 opted for a mobile with very clean lines and is reminiscent both of those HTC One and those of Samsung Galaxy S4. The two mixed together, of course. The result is very pleasant and this concept and has nothing to envy the most beautiful devices currently available on the market.

However, no offense to Jony Ive and his henchmen, the design is not everything. And a smartphone meet the expected success, it really needs a strong ecosystem on which to build. The smartphone is designed by T3 pretty strong on that side because it was thought to be able to act as well ... handheld. The opposite would have been surprising, of course, but the idea of being able to run a small Mario on his mobile, and therefore in any event, not lack of interest so far.

So of course, this concept is also nice to share all the tools and all platforms, developed by Nintendo. Through it, users would have access to manage their profile, a tool for instant messaging as well as much other all the more fun than the other stuff. All in a very "Nintendo-esque" atmosphere, even if the interface of the platform could be a little more successful ... and more original. There, the state was especially the feeling of being faced with a theme found on Cydia and it's a shame.

Anyway, for the rest, this video should delight all those who remained loyal to the brand, and hopes that it will manage to return to the front of the stage.

Panasonic Lumix GX2: The first informal specifications

As mentioned earlier in the week, Panasonic could benefit from the torpor of summer, and more specifically from the summer heat of August to present a brand new hybrid camera that would be aimed primarily at experts looking for a device with compact dimensions. Connoisseurs will have understood, this is obviously the Lumix GX2, or who will succeed... GX1. And even if his name is not actually confirmed yet - so we're not immune to a reversal of last minute - the home of nosy Digicame managed to get the first informal specifications of the beast, specifications you will naturally be able to discover later in the article.

As usual, however, it should be noted that any rumor must necessarily be taken with the greatest prudence. If Digicame is rarely wrong so far, and if the manufacturers seem to have the greatest difficulty in keeping secret their new products, nothing says that the following information will prove to be accurate. Morality, you'd probably better equip you to think of your tweezers rumors before going further.

Also, be aware that this is not the complete data sheet GX2 you'll discover here. Not yet, at least. For the moment, only four features of the new Panasonic case would be known:
  • New 18-megapixel sensor.
  • Maximum shutter speed to 1/8000 second.
  • Built-in image stabilizer.
  • Integrated tilt viewfinder.

The most amazing thing with this noise corridor, from my point of view, it is the supposed presence of an integrated housing viewfinder. On the GX1, the only way to enjoy a sight it was to buy option dedicated accessory, an accessory that therefore not incorporated in the casing. Digicame If sources are true, then Panasonic have finally changed strategy by integrating directly to the viewfinder housing. Knowing that it is rather an expert public, or at least enthusiastic, it is fairly consistent but nonetheless it would be better not to pack too quickly.

Xbox One: when Microsoft pays the players' heads

The Xbox One was presented before yesterday and now we know almost everything about her, except of course the price. If the new console from Microsoft is not unattractive, it nevertheless suffers from some rather annoying limitations, limitations that affect the lending of games , of course, but also for backward compatibility . Yes, because this naughty little slut will unfortunately not be able to make the titles of Xbox 360 turn, which is sure to infuriate those who had a well-stocked library. The funny thing of course is yet to come because not content with limiting players, Microsoft has apparently decided to pay their cum ... Everything is explained in the following.

In reality, everything is pointed out in an interview with the Wall Street Journal. Don Mattrick, head of "interactive entertainment" at Microsoft, and was allowed to speak on the backward compatibility of the new console. According to him, the lack of backward compatibility is not really a problem since it is relevant only 5% of players. In this context, it was not really necessary to spend time and spend money to develop technology capable of running games designed for the Xbox 360 on the Xbox One.

Well, then again, everything is fine, but then things go wrong. For indeed, Don would have concluded the interview by releasing a terse "If you're backwards compatible're really backwards" . What does that mean? Well, in good French, it looks something like: "If you are backward compatible, so it is that you are really retro" . This is not necessarily a literal translation, of course, but the idea is there. In essence, this means that all players wishing to play their old songs, even those who reported the money to Microsoft.

Microsoft: as communication problems?

However, it is important to note that these statements were extracted from the interview mentioned a little earlier. His comments are out of context, and it will take with the utmost of prudence.

Finally, and speaking of the Xbox One, you should know that Gamespot UK has posted an interactive poll so people can vote for their favorite console. A survey that takes place on Twitter, which is based on two simple hashtags: # GameSpotPS4 and GamesSpotXbox . Yes, last night was the PlayStation 4 which carried with no less than 89% of the vote. And even if it is not necessarily a reflection of what people think all the players around the world, we can not help thinking there as discomfort.

Google Drive: a new interface for Android app

Google loves maps, and you can even say that he loves. Proof is, after entering Google Now, the latter eventually landed on Google+ and it seems that the giant does not want to stay there. Yes, because it has deployed a new version of Google Drive, a version that takes advantage of a redesigned interface that is based on the famous card. The result is obviously not lack of interest and if you have a terminal in Android, well aware that you will be able to enjoy it now. Great, is not it? Certainly, and this is why we talk about it.

As you can see from the picture that accompanies this article, the new Google Drive is not unattractive. No, contrary to recent updates to the application, it is a complete redesign and pushes the concept far enough. Oh, of course, at the top, you always find the good old horizontal bar that allows us to access the main features of the tool, but it is quite another for a list of documents stored on the account.

These are actually the latter that is now displayed in the cards when you switch over to the new view mode, or the "Grid" mode. The interesting thing is that we allow each thumbnail to preview the associated document without having to open it. Better for us to make a clearer picture, we can also start quick overview to briefly examine the contents.

Google Drive: a scanner and saving documents locally

Not bad, and it is not finished because our friends Googlers have also added a feature that should please a lot of people because it is... a scanner. When you want to create a new document, so you can select the "scan" option and then photographed in the process, the document you want to scan. Last but not least, as told by our friends eating pudding, it may also save a copy of the selected document... locally. Very handy, especially for those who spend their lives in the subway.

Well, it's not all that, but we would like to have the same thing on iOS.

Download Google Drive on Play Store

Deezer arrives on Xbox with Kinect support

Firefox is one of the key leaders in the field of streaming music. To always attract more users, the company launched from time to time with new features and some of these do not also lack of interest. Here, known as Deezer has just lifted the veil on a new fully for the Xbox 360 implementation, a rather pretty to look at application and that everyone will eventually benefit. Including those who do not have a premium account on the platform.

Yeah, well that's not entirely accurate since, they have to deal with some limitations. Which? Well they can only read the first thirty seconds of all the tracks present in the catalogue  It's a pity, but nothing is lost at all because they can always fall back on the thematic radios that they will be available without any limit whatsoever. So you can animate your evenings no problem with Firefox.

The interface of the application, in turn, is aligned with the Modern UI dear to Microsoft. We thus find a horizontal navigation that lets you juggle home, search, news, music, radio and everything else. Deezer has done a good job and enjoy a tool seems particularly desirable ergonomics and rather intuitive.

But the really interesting thing is the integration of voice commands and support for the Kinect. With it, users can fully control their Deezer's voice or by the sly devils in front of their television. Typically the kind of features that should not put a lot of atmosphere to the house late at night and after a few bottles emptied.

Finally, you can specify that if the Deezer application is available on the Xbox 360, it should also be on the next Xbox to be unveiled tonight by Microsoft.

Chrome: a launcher applications on OS X

Those who have already had the opportunity to lay hands on a machine running Chrome OS necessarily know that it incorporates an application launcher. By clicking on the appropriate icon, it is possible to display the list of all installed applications on the platform and I must admit that it is still very convenient to find all his favourite tools in one place. Yes, Google apparently wants to extend this functionality to other systems because + Fran├žois Beaufort has announced the arrival of the pitcher on the latest version of Chromium on OS X. So, if you have a Mac at home, then you will be able to enjoy this famous pitcher now.

But how did it work, the guy? In reality, it is very simple. Once activated, it will be enough to swing a little click on the icon of Chromium, the same that is in the dock, to bring up a window that corresponds in every respect to the integrated Chrome OS launcher.

In this window and we find the list of all applications installed on our browser, applications that appear on a very visual grid and focusing on icons. At the bottom of this window, we also find two horizontal bars that allow us to scroll through the pages of applications. Recent work on the same principle as the home screen of Android, and each page can contain no less than 16 different icons and the user will of course the possibility of order as it sees fit.

The only thing missing, ultimately, it is the search field. On Chrome OS, it is at the top of the window allows you to find easily the application of choice - and maybe more - by entering a few letters. It seems that Google’s have decided not to implement the OS X version of Chromium and it's still a shame.

It must also know is that this marker is not active by default. To benefit, you will have need to launch the application with the following option: show switch-app list. If you do not know how, it is not shameful and knows that all instructions are well located at this address. Oh and also consider installing at least one application, otherwise your launcher does not appear.

Deezer arrives on Xbox with Kinect technology

Deezer already had very good applications for iPhone , Android, Windows Phone, iPad , Mac, Windows 8 for connected TVs (Samsung, LG & Toshiba) but also radios Parrot.

We could think that the music streaming service had circled the field of possibilities. But no! Deezer announces its version for the Xbox 360 games (although we imagine it should also work on the new Xbox unveiled tonight).

In some ways, this application tunes resemblance to Windows 8 (which is not surprising since Microsoft seeks to bring a unit in its product range around the famous Metro interface - Windows 8).

Users do not have a premium account + will have access to thousands of radio stations as well as thematic discovery mode (which allows 30 seconds of listening on all tracks).

Premium users will, in turn, access the full service and find their playlists and albums in unlimited listening.

The Kinect technology for music

Deezer could have stopped there, but they decided to bring a little more. Indeed, if the navigation can be done with the controller, this video also features a voice control (with the possibility to state the name of a playlist, for example) or gestures through Kinect (where you can scroll and select a track by moving the hand).

Deezer has not forgotten a game console is often shared between different players, since it also allows the ability to easily switcher a Deezer account to another (up to 3 accounts simultaneously).

And just imagine that Spotify has decided to put the cover with a new feature of the same type, a feature that will allow you simply to integrate the most popular songs from the catalog on your website or blog.

This is obviously not the revolution of the year, that's for sure, but this novelty should still appeal to all those who are present on the platform and who like to offer from time to time the music to their readers. And especially as developed by the small company widget is rather full.

As you can see by taking a peek at the end of this section, developed by Spotify widget does not lack of interest. Particularly complete, you will slowly animate your site, or some of your items, without taking your head. First observation, it actually incorporates two tabs, one for the Top 50 Spotify, another for the Top 50 Social. What is it? Easy to say that we find here all the most shared tracks by users. Very convenient to find the pieces that work best.

Spotify: stuffed widget functionality

In addition, on the right, one can also detect the presence of a very funny flag, a flag that will allow you to switch between different countries since all the information given by the widget are actually geotagged. Knowing the Top 50 of our Russian friends is not necessarily identical to the Top 50 in the UK or even France, it is obviously a very good thing.

Just below the tabs, we also find an option that will allow us to choose the period of interest. We can therefore easily see the top of the week, or that of the previous week, or even that of the week before.

It's not bad, of course, but is not perfect, however, and the biggest flaw of this widget is that it only supports unfortunately not playing songs. In other words, when you click on a track, the guy you refer to the web version of Spotify and you will therefore have to go through it to play the selected track.

If you want to include this widget on your site, remember that all the information to do so are here.

Facebook developers offers the native function 'Share' on iOS

Late last year we inform you that Facebook wanted to move the user experience in mobile web to the fullest, and one of the keys to achieve going to allow content sharing social network from their own smartphone. Well, now, this function is also available for developers to move it to mobile applications in the social network. The idea is that since these apps can share content, tag friends or indicate the location of each, and the best thing is that all this is possible with a single line of code. Besides this, the app in iOS version will be enhanced by actions of Open Graph . Have all the details in the links below.

The iPhone reduces its rate of satisfaction among users in the U.S

It is one of the strengths of Apple among its products: the index of user satisfaction keeps true to the apple products and purchase them repeat over and over again. Indeed, it has been one of the arguments put forward by analysts to predict that the iPhone will continue to grow in market share. However, this goose that lays the golden eggs of Cupertino could have begun to see its decline if we stick to the latest study conducted by the American Customer Satisfaction Index. According to the report, Apple's smartphone would be reduced satisfaction index by 2% over the previous year in the same period.

The bad news does not arrive alone and Tim Cook, in addition to seeing their precious eroded ratio, has witnessed a dramatic growth of Samsung, which has catapulted its registration by 7% in a year. According to the ACSI report, “Samsung recorded the highest growth among manufacturers, "but it is noteworthy that Koreans are still below the mark that Apple records (76% for the former versus 81% for the Cupertino.) ACSI's report is based on a survey conducted in the U.S. from 70,000 users and includes more than 200 companies in different sectors. 

PlayStation 4: a reconstruction from teasing

Yesterday, Sony has posted a strange video, or rather a teasing, showing some of its next home console and therefore the PlayStation 4. A very rhythmic and that showcases the artistic blur video, all with a large number of sequences chaining at a breakneck pace. Taking his courage in both hands, a user of Reddit decided to get their hands dirty and reassemble all the sequences in order to proceed with the recovery console. The result is quite interesting and it finally gives us a good idea of what the PS4 could look like. The image is of course later in the article.

It must be admitted, the teaser released by Sony yesterday did not lack pace. Not really, in fact, and the video has aligned twenty sequences of very short duration, sequences focusing on some of the "pieces" of the console. I also made ​​some history you facilitate reading catches the past are available at this address, and it seems I'm not the only one who had the idea.

Proof of this is some-Albino Zebra did exactly the same thing as me, but he has shown a little more courageous than your humble servant since decided to assemble these images to determine the general lines of the console. After many hours of tinkering, he managed to get a result and thus supposed to represent the famous console that has caused so much ink since the beginning of the year picture.

PlayStation 4: towards more angular curves?

It is of course very difficult to know if this image is reality, only a privileged few should know at the moment, but it is not inconsistent. In fact, the reconstructed image on console quite like a PlayStation 3, but with a more angular shell and that showcases the metal. All with a number of premium ventilation grilles.

As to whether it is actually the PlayStation 4, well only time will tell. At last, it is actually question Sony unveils its new console during E3 2013, and it will have to wait next month to be fixed.

Flickr: a new interface and more storage space

Flickr is not very young, he officiates in the industry since 2005 and brings something like 54 million unique visitors worldwide, all with more than 6 billion photos stored on its servers. Great, of course, but the guy is unfortunately stalled for some years now and so it is very difficult to stand up to newcomers like 500px. Yahoo, meanwhile, has decided to react by launching a new version of its flagship service. A new version available on all accounts from that night, and finally brings a lot of news.

Starting with a new interface. From that side, it must be admitted that the work did not fail because the interface flickr has not really changed in recent years. She was beginning to show its age , it really did not respect the expectations of the users of the platform and Yahoo engineers have decided to start again from scratch.

Although they took as the new Flickr interface is much nicer than the old one. The content is well developed and our pretty pictures will be much more impressive than they were before. Yahoo has also opted for a darker interface and this is obviously a good thing because the pictures that comes out more. However, what can be noted is that some elements of the old version tend to rise from time to time over the pages. By clicking on a photo, for example, the old interface back for a split second before disappearing swiftly. Worse, some items are broken and this is particularly true of the homepage that seems to load without CSS.

1TB for the new version of Flickr!

Strange, that's for sure, but no doubt that everything should quickly return to normal.

Among the new features to the service, there is this cover story that seems very fashionable at the moment. Just like Facebook and Twitter as well as Google+, Flickr will now allow us to change the coverage of our profile and we can stick him a pretty picture on the buttocks in order to show how we are all creative. Also in the same vein, Yahoo also announced news that should please all those with a free account on the service.

Which one?

Well this is a story of storage space, actually. Now, Flickr allow us to store as much as 1 TB of data without having to leave our credit card. Two subscription plans are yet in force: the phrase "Ad Free" without advertisement, charged $ 49.99 per year and the phrase "double" with 2TB of disk space charged $ 499.99 per year. With that, you should have plenty to do, even though we would all like to see land cheaper intermediate formulas.

So naturally, it is still too early to know if this new version will save the service, but it should all de same to please those who have remained faithful all these years, and have therefore not been look elsewhere.

Oh, and if not, know that a new version of the Android app also just landed the Play Store, a new version that provides exactly the same as the new web portal.

Nokia EOS information and a release date?

Nokia is in great shape right now, and this is apparently not about to change. Having formalized its Lumia 925 and Lumia 928, the company could actually get up very soon the veil on a new smartphone that we've heard a lot in recent weeks as it is ... the Nokia EOS. Nokia EOS entirely designed for photography and resumes broadly the same technical specifications as the Nokia 808 PureView, at least in terms of the sensor. Interesting, for sure, but there are better since secret informant WMPoweruser have had the opportunity to play with the beast. Needless to say, he took the opportunity to note some of the characteristics of the EOS...

Before going further, it is important to note that all the information is absolutely not come from an official source, so it is better to take with the utmost of prudence. As always it comes to rumors, and even when these are not accompanied by any evidence, or even a single index. This is precisely the case with this new corridor noise, of course.

In short, according to this anonymous informant, the Nokia EOS resume the same lines as the Nokia Lumia 920 with a polycarbonate shell and a similar screen, a 4.5-inch AMOLED screen if my memory does not fail me. However, it is sufficient to return the terminal to realize that it has absolutely nothing to do with his distant cousin. Nokia EOS have a little overweight at the sensor, a sensor which we unfortunately do not know the number of megapixels because it was not shown in the tested prototype our mysterious friend.

Nokia EOS just for the photo, of course!

However, it noted a lot of interesting details. It would appear that the Nokia EOS enjoys a Xeon flash and optical a little more discreet than the Nokia 808 PureView. Just off the flash, there would also be a small LED that could - should note the conditional - when the autofocus assist light is missing.

Another interesting point is the Nokia EOS embarks a new application called Nokia Camera Pro, an application that would benefit from a unique interface allowing the user to indulge in the joys of manual map. How? That's a good question, but it will wait for the mobile hand knowledge.

Besides that, WMPoweruser has further information on the Nokia EOS, information that comes from a different source. It would thus not be available in several colors and will not support either the wireless charging. Note finally that the EOS Nokia should normally be submitted by the manufacturer somewhere between the months of July and August, so it will not stay very long to wait to know everything about it.

Pinterest: more information to the content pinned

Pinterest going strong. Late last year, the famous social network and totaled 20 million users, an increase of 2702% compared to the previous year. However, the company does not want to rest on its laurels and it thus has consistently deploy new features. After the new interface and arrival statistics , thus the sharing module which now enjoys some significant improvements, improvements that affect mainly the information retrieved when a user pin content on one of his paintings edge. Pinterest is and wants to be more useful, more practical, and it might allow the service to attract new users.

Until now, when someone wanted to share content one of its panels, Pinterest was able to recover only the media of the associated page. The user, in turn, still had the option to add a description, but it is unfortunately not going much further.

Soon, things will be very different and the team in charge of Pinterest is thus working on a new module sharing friendlier and especially much more comprehensive. Available for certain content, it can recover a bit more elements then the display directly on our dashboards. In the case of a film, for example, is the complete and other information related to movies that are uploaded by the casting tool. Same for recipes, where we have this time right ingredients and all associated details. Shopping sites will not be outdone and it's downright price and date of availability of our products to be well recovered by the module.

Towards "rich pine" button and compatible with mobile applications

Not bad, of course, but know however that these new sharing options are not yet available everywhere. It thus seems that we can not still enjoy in Europe and only some sites would test this new tool , sites like Etsy, Netflix and others. However, for those interested, Pinterest has posted on this page a complete documentation on these "rich pine."

In addition to this new, Pinterest has also announced that it implemented a new share button designed and developed for our mobile applications. Again, only a few applications can take advantage of the moment but this novelty should be rapidly extended to most of the mobile applications market. Morality, if you do intensive use of Pinterest, then something tells me that you must be very happy.

Jolla: a first Sailfish smartphone OS in the end of 2013

MeeGo has a number of fans and creators of the Finnish company Jolla should be included. Proof of this is the last year, they decided to design a new mobile platform based on the embers of the old MeeGo, a platform called Sailfish OS and we have discovered, in video, in late last year. Since Jolla continued its merry way and the company has just announced the launch of its first smartphone OS Sailfish! The good news is that it will be released throughout Europe by the end of the year and we do not have to wait long before you can enjoy.

Jolla, for those who do not know, is not like any other company since it was founded by former employees of Nokia. People who know the market and therefore have some experience in mobile telephony. Following the tragic death of MeeGo, they have decided to start their own company in order to give a second life to the platform by developing a new "fork" Sailfish OS.

A Sailfish OS takes advantage of a unique interface and features some particularly significant, as this lock screen that can display several widgets, which allows mobile users to access information without having to unlock their smartphone. Rather convenient, and it is thanks to the many advantages of the platform Jolla managed to attract several firms officiating on the mobility sector, companies such as ST-Ericsson or the Finnish operator DNA.

Good, and the first smartphone OS Sailfish then it is what?

We do not yet know all its specs, but it should enjoy a 4.5 inch screen and 16GB of storage space accompanied by a port for micro SD cards. It will also be possible to rely on a 8 megapixel sensor on the back of the camera and compatibility with 4G networks. The battery, meanwhile, will be removed and it will not fail to delight all those who frequently ranting against the autonomy of their terminal.

On the question of design, this phone looks like any smartphone, but it offers a very interesting feature: it is possible to buy separately, colored rear shells that will be clipped onto the terminal. Well, then, you might say this is nothing revolutionary and you do not necessarily get wrong, except that Saiflish OS will be able to recognize the color of the back cover to change its own color. Basically you hang a green back cover and the interface of the platform takes the exact same color. It's pretty fun, in the end, and this detail has at least the merit to play the card of originality.

Okay and the price of the beast then?

The first smartphone designed by Jolla will be offered at a fairly attractive price since it cost only € 399. Thereupon, the company has also introduced a special offer to reward mobile users who trust him. If you decide to pre-order the device, and you can enjoy a discount of € 100 and it will cost you and the modest sum of € 299, the same price as a Nexus 4.
