Windows Phone 7.8: update arrives, according to Nokia

Windows Phone 7.8 seems to be desired and you're probably some of you ask when it will be possible to enjoy. The information is not official, of course, but Nokia has even all-of-view to speak on the issue and the Finnish manufacturer has revealed that the update was still scheduled for the beginning of the year therefore it could happen in the next few days, or in the coming weeks. Suffice to say that addicts tile should tremble with joy.

Always according to the same information, which actually come from Italian and Spanish divisions of Nokia, Microsoft would have preferred to take the time to thoroughly test its platform with manufacturers and operators. In order to be sure that all goes well on the day of its deployment. The firm would have been overly cautious and it is obviously very difficult to blame him, especially when we take a look at his passive and more specifically the various pots that drags behind it. Big thinking for Mango, who had earned a cold sweat to a lot of people.

After, of course, we can not help thinking that Microsoft may have (this is an assumption) deliberately dragged feet to allow time for Windows Phone 8 to install on the market. A choice that would ultimately make more sense, especially when we know that the holidays season is generally very promising in terms of sales volume.

For those who have missed the boat, you can still take time to remember the major improvements in Windows Phone 7.8. They are not necessarily that much but so many in the lot, there are even all-of the new lock screen, new color themes or the famous resizable tiles that allow you to put some order on your Home screen. Very friendly innovations, therefore, which should please all those who cling to their Windows Phone as a lifeline.

Until now, when wanted to invest in a hard drive, it should be preferred storage space, or to prefer speed. Crucial is clearly not the kind of company to compromise and thus that he has just lifted the veil on its new SSD, a drive that offers nothing less than 960 GB of storage space.

  • SSD 960 GB - 2.5 inches: 500 MB / s read, 400 MB / s write.

In addition, you should know that these four discs will support the AES 256 for encryption and they integrate several capacitors to avoid the worst case of power failure. Better, the buggers will even integrate management technology internal temperature, a technology that is able to automatically decrease disk performance in case of overheating.

On paper, it's still great and promising as saying that the 960 GB SSD may enter the eye of a lot of people. Especially at this price, especially with the performance, especially with embedded technologies. And finally, the hybrid hard drives have just lost all interest.

As for simplicity, it is found in the OS developed by Google that does not require more setup than a smartphone Android (Google Account and key Wi-Fi). Moreover, this OS does not need antivirus or patch installations or updates since it automatically.

Another important point of the Chromebook is that they operate on the principle of the permanent synchronization of all content in the cloud. In this way we can access its data wherever one is or any Chromebook simply by identifying themselves. As for the software to use, it will simply Google services or applications and games available on the Chrome Web Store, but for some it is already enough for their use.

CES 2013: the Chameleon arrives on smartphone smart launcher

Chameleon Launcher is starting a project to Kickstarter launcher for tablet , having managed to raise $ 30,000 from 6400 investors. After a first version only available in tablet , creators unveil smartphone version.

A launcher is a software that allows you to create customizable home screen according to your preferences, like an RSS feed to Netvibes. Chameleon provides a virtual space where you can specify a location for your widgets, and the size that they occupy.

Running in the background, the launcher fits your location and contents of the widgets that you just selected.

At CES 2013 , Chameleon Launcher shows a version intended for smartphones running on the Samsung Galaxy Note II and Nexus 4 , and any smartphone Android 3.2 and higher.

PaperTab: touch pad flexible wants to replace the paper

The interesting thing with CES is that manufacturers are little known and trying all de same to make a difference with original and sometimes downright strange. This is particularly the case with Plastic Logic , which took the show to unveil the PaperTab a prototype tablet touch screen and flexible benefits plus a processor  Intel Core i5 and a beautiful screen of 10.7 inches . All with advanced features allowing it to interact easily with other similar slates. And if you want to see how it works in real life, then know that you'll find a little lower for a video demonstration.

So of course, given the size of the craft, needless to say that the processor that anime is not directly integrated with the device. As you can see from the picture and the video accompanying this article, it is actually connected to the screen via a web. In addition, and although we do not know the screen resolution, you can add that last tape in 10.7 inches and it only plays the card of "black & white".

From my point of view, finally PaperTab three interesting features. Its flexibility, for starters, which allows him to get closer to the cover of a magazine or even a book. This is pretty cool and it could finally give life to a lot of nice things in the next few years. Another advantage of this device is also its usability as finally just bend some corners of the screen to navigate through the platform. Again, the ergonomic, it is rather promising.

And then, of course, there is the connectivity between PaperTab. Each screen actually seems to be able to identify the location of other devices. It suffices to consider two device to switch the display on both devices. Very interesting for those who need to see plans, or even to easily share photos and other media shelf to another.

The trick, of course, is that the technology is still in its infancy, it will probably take a few years to mature, but I find that flexible displays are very promising and we have to also had evidence this morning with the prototype smartphone designed by Samsung.

Autorip when Amazon offers MP3 CD of all purchased

Amazon has just lifted the veil on Autorip , a new service that may be of interest to all those who regularly buy CD on famous online store. Why? Just because everyone buying a cake can now leave with its digital version , and therefore with all MP3 going well. Very practical, of course, but this is not a reason to pack everything away because Autorip is currently available in the United States. And it will have to wait a little longer before you can enjoy in Europe.

In addition, we must also temper the good news by saying that this offer does not have all the CD shop. In reality, for the moment, only 50,000 albums would be eligible. Not glop, of course, but know all de same as the list is expected to grow in the weeks and months to come, it is in any case what Jeff Bezos solemnly declared at its conference.

Yes, and there's more ... because this offer is retro-active . What does that mean? Simply that Autorip go for the CD you buy in the future, certainly, but also for all wafers acquired since 1998. Attention all de same as Autorip works based on the Cloud Player . Basically, the service will send digital versions of all the albums in your possession to your storage stashed in the "cloud". It will be recalled in passing that the free version of Cloud Player includes only 5 GB of disk space . Not stupid, Amazon through this system will be able to kill two birds with one stone gently pushing us subscribe to a pay for it. Very well thought out.

If you want to know more about the service, please note that you only need to make this page to learn all of it. For the more adventurous among you, or those terribly bored in this beautiful afternoon, the conditions of use are in there. Well, in any case Amazon has once more hit hard because nobody expected to launch a service of this kind.

The social network has sent invitations to the American press conference for January 15, without specifying the subject. The announcement has since ceased to fuel speculation even stock market.

Facebook gives us a nice announcement effect. The social network has sent invitations for an event on January 15th to be held at its headquarters in Menlo Park, California. "Come and see what we built", can be read on the solicitation. Group Mark Zuckerberg did not give further details about the conference, but it was enough to reassure investors.

The action of Facebook has taken last Wednesday the 30 dollars, while in September it had reached its lowest historical to 17.73 dollars. As a reminder, during the Facebook IPO May 8, 2012, the action of the group was 38 dollars.

Since then, rumors have continued to multiply on the canvas. Some media talk of launching a smartphone, Facebook stamped, which would be created in collaboration with HTC. This rumor, already mentioned in the past, remains unlikely. Mark Zuckerberg was especially entrusted in July that the project "makes no sense" .

Hypothesis is also search engine developed by Facebook. The group's founder has never hidden its intentions to create your own tool. "We are in a unique position to respond to people's questions. At one time or another, we will. We have a team working on it", he explained at a conference.

The principle is not to compete directly with Google, but to offer a social aspect to online research, so that it is more personalized.

It may finally that Facebook offers several new features, such as streaming music or VoIP within their apps. The group is indeed associated recently with Skype and Spotify. The establishment of an online shop is also possible, since the company has already launched Facebook Gifts that can offer gifts to their contacts. Therefore expect 15 January to have the heart net.

IllumiRoom, the new concept of Microsoft

After Kinect , IllumiRoom could be the next technology Microsoft to emerge.

Currently still in its simple concept, IllumiRoom would be able to project images of the space around your TV so you can immerse more in the gaming experience.

Once your living space analyzed using Kinect, a projector would be responsible for creating a game environment using various visual effects. Single flashes of light or true extension of the field of vision plated directly on your furniture, the system would be managed dynamically according to the arrangement of walls and objects close to the television.

Microsoft says that the video demonstration of this technology is realized in real time without any effect of post-production, and it must be said that the result shows quite impressive.

Impossible however whether this idea will state the simple concept that if it is developed with a view to future commercialization.

PureView: lots of new things to come from Nokia

Nokia has been in trouble for many years but this story belongs to the past. By partnering with Microsoft and abandoning its own mobile platform in favor of Windows Phone, the Finnish manufacturer has succeeded in reversing the trend and we even put a few slaps well felt. Between smartphones beautiful , ecosystem reasoned and PureView technology , we can even say that it has hit hard. And of course, Nokia is not going to sit there and thus one of its executives announced the arrival of several products using technology PureView.

Contrary to what one might think, technology PureView not just anecdotal. In fact, its benefits are not taken lightly and just finally take a look at pictures or videos taken with Lumia 920 to realize its full potential. Especially when the light is lacking, moreover, since the guy does not sag and even though the performance of most of its competitors collapse miserably under the same conditions.

In short, the PureView is cool and Nokia seems determined to exploit its technology as much as possible. Juha Alakarhu the man at the head of the division image Nokia, told in an interview that he and his employees wanted to go further and they worked well on new things affecting around this technology. Obviously, we do not know more, but it seems that these new touch equally to hardware than software . In other words, if the introduction of new products is not to be excluded, it is undoubtedly the technology itself that may make a big leap this year.

Finally, it may be recalled that the technology PureView was presented at the MWC 2012. Although I would put my hand to cut, so I think it is likely that Nokia will bring some surprises for MWC 2013.

Nuance unveils Wintermute, a universal Siri

The mobile manufacturers have launched their own virtually all voice assistant. There is of course the famous Siri Apple, but Samsung S-Voice. LG, Motorola and HTC unveiled their same voice assistant. Wintermute But Nuance could come play spoilsport.

Indeed, Nuance unveiled at CES, assistant Wintermute. Formally, the wizard closely resembles Siri. Ask him a question, he answers you and helps you to access your application. But where it can really hurt is that it is a universal tool that adapts to all machines, not just in your phone. Tablets, PC, TV, one can imagine an application Wintermute on all devices.

Better Wintermute Nuance will be personalized and store all your tastes and requests for help, and whatever the device used. So you do not possess one assistant who can help you on all machines at the same time. A little bit of JARVIS in amount.

For now in the planning stage , Wintermute has not yet release date.

Google Time: a concept for a Google SmartWatch

Now Google is a very nice tool and even if we can not still enjoy all the features of the old continent, we may as well admit that to yourself Big G ​​did a great job on this one. No doubt he also will not stop there and the giant will not fail to decline his tool on other devices. It seems that Adrian Maciburko think like me since it has done a very good concept of integrating Google Now SmartWatch, a concept that should enter into the eye of a lot of people and you can see a little lower.

Our smartphones have become, over the years, real monsters power and just take a look at our new chip foundry preferred to realize that the trend is unlikely to reverse. However, you may also find that large firms working on the technology sector consider more alternative tracks, tracks like the famous Glass Project from Google that will allow us to access our information otherwise.

I could be wrong, of course, but I think SmartWatch should also be developed in the near future. And it will probably come a day when Google Time imagined by Adrian will be more than just a concept. In reality, it is exactly the same type of products that would not hurt to be necessary in Geeks, and perhaps even Madame Michu. As you can see from the pictures that accompany this article, this is all about Google SmartWatch Now. Just as playing with his little touchscreen to access the weather in the region or to easily manage reminders and appointments . Same thing to update their status on Google or search on the web.

And finally, we say that the service SmartWatch could make a lot of people. Because, well, smartphones, it's great, but they often sleep at the bottom of our pocket. And when you receive a notification any, we should take the time to get them, unlock them and see what it is. While there, a Google Time, we would not have to rack your brains and it would ultimately few seconds to access all the information we need daily.

Gigabyte: A Mac Mini for April

Gigabyte does not merely present its 10.1-inch touchscreen tablet running Windows 8 at CES 2013, the automaker also took the opportunity to lift the veil on a new computer which may not appeal to many people. Yes, a lot of people, and more specifically to those who are looking for a compact and small size. Because, as this Mini PC looks like a Mac Mini fed hormones and that does not compromise on power ... The picture and specifications are obviously in the sequel.

The interesting thing with this Mini PC is that it does not just take the format and guidelines of the Mac Mini. No, because it is paid in the luxury of being more compact than the latter. Pretty impressive, of course, especially when one takes a look at what lies under the hood.

For indeed, this bike benefits from a technical rather complete with an Intel Core i3/i5/i7, up to 8 GB of RAM , 256 GB hard disk format SSD , WiFi , three USB ports 3.0, an Ethernet port and two HDMI outputs. The graphics card, for its part, should not look far and as this little machine that does not impose such a machine gamers. It's a shame, it's true, but it may well act as an extra computer or even media center evolved.

Especially the little machine is not bad looking with a nice aluminum shell which denote not once you have installed in your home. Finally, we can specify that still do not know the name of this machine, or even its price. The only thing we know is that it will hit the market in the month of April and we'll talk maybe once available and its price is known.

SSDs are great, it is a fact, but they are not necessarily perfect and ugliest default, this is undoubtedly their limited storage capacity. To overcome this drawback, the manufacturers are working on hybrid solutions and bringing together the best of both worlds. We had an example with Fusion or Apple Drive with the latest Toshiba Qosmio but this time it was the turn of Western Digital to enter the race with its WD Black, the hybrid hard drives formatted 2.5 inch and which may be of interest to a lot of people.

But before that, we will still take the time to briefly explain the operation of hybrid hard drives.

On the one hand, we will have the space to store our files and the other, a fast disk that will improve the overall performance of our machine.

Architecture that Western Digital has decided to take over to build its new hard drives, series WD Black. The latter will not happen on the market right now, it is a fact, and we do not yet know the price of these discs, but we already know that the first two models play the map with a compact 2.5 format inches and extremely fine ranging from 5mm to 7mm depending on the model.

On the disc itself, you should know that it will be available in two models to start: one 500 GB and 1 TB one. Both drives will ship 24 GB or 32 GB SSD and they should arrive at the market somewhere in the next 6 months.
