Google Drive: a better integration of third-party applications

Service, whatever it is, do not just to himself and that is exactly why he should not be afraid to open the door to third-party applications. Google Drive has understood and thus that the search giant has decided to extend a helping hand to his publishers by offering a privileged access to the tool. Now, therefore, third party applications attached to our account directly appear in the menu creation platform, and so we facilitate access. And it is still very nice.

Twitter, or even Dropbox, would perhaps not as successful if they had not decided to open their API to the greatest number. In making this decision, they actually gave life to a large number of tools and services that have enriched their offer and this is perhaps what enabled them to reach as many users in such a short time. And we understand why Google has applied the same strategy with Drive.

Drive the same which is also widely used by third-party developers. It suffices to take a ride on the Chrome Web Store to find countless applications and tools leveraging technology developed by Google. And in some cases they are even software solutions that are proposed to help us create our home plans, make diagrams or even to edit our photos. There are a lot of things, it is a fact, and it is precisely these tools that Big G ​​has decided to develop its platform.

Now, third-party applications exploiting technology of Google Drive will be directly accessible from the latter, through the menu "Create". Basically, it was mainly used to create new documents (word processing, spreadsheet, presentation, forms and so on) but Google just deploy an update that brings some changes. Now when the user clicks on this button, it will always appear to the left of the following component modules, but the menu also will list on the right, all third party applications connected to our account. Better down, you will also find a link that we refer directly to the Chrome Web Store, which will allow us to install new modules.

In the end, it is probably not the revolution of the year, but this little novelty should still make our lives easier and ultimately what counts.

Facebook Pages Manager allows you to program publications

Manager Pages Facebook or Facebook Pages Manager, if you do not know, is the official application of social network which allows you to manage the pages you are the administrator, an application that can be quite useful but However, still lacking a few features. And indeed, Facebook Pages Manager enjoys a new update improves the application a bit: now it is possible to program publications and events to create your page. Of course, it is possible to perform these actions from your computer, you can do so from your smartphone is something more practical.

From the web interface of the network, or create a publication schedule an event is simply from the box allowing you to publish status. In this new update, the operation becomes more or less on the same mobile device.

Thus, for a publication schedule, simply click on "Update my status", type it on the keyboard and then click on the little clock icon in the bottom left. This will effectively open a dialog box asking you the date and time at which it will publish this publication, a program that you confirm by clicking on the "Calendar" and you can delete by clicking on "Delete" (it seems almost logical).

Facebook events pages actually represent key moments, such as the new version of a program or other things like that. These events can therefore now be created from the Facebook Pages Manager directly by clicking on "Create Event" next to "Update my status". The form is the same as the web version, so you should know if you have already used.

ZTE unveiled at MWC smartphone OS in Firefox

The press release we received leaves no room for doubt: the Chinese manufacturer ZTE during MWC reveal two important novelties. The first is the Grand ZTE Memo. The second is more original: it is a smartphone OS that Firefox should be called the ZTE Mozilla.

All these developments will be presented during the press conference to be held ZTE Monday, February 25 from 16h. You can count on us for the relay! A priori terminals that will host this OS will be positioned at entry level with very competitive prices, and aspire to be a credible alternative to the dominant OS mobile landscape.

All this is really just confirmation of what has been announced in July 2012 Mozilla: at that time, and while Firefox OS (which, remember, is based on the HTML5) was only in its infancy Mozilla already stated that the OS supports benefited from several operators phone in North America and Europe, as well as two manufacturers that are ZTE and TCL (which markets the Alcatel One Touch). One can imagine that the main aim of all these actors is to reduce their dependence on Google and its Android OS, which represents a more dominant sales.

Nexus 7, Qualcomm could take the place of Nvidia

Pleasant or bad news? Today, we will focus on a rumor that evokes a rebranding for the architecture of the next generation of Nexus 7.

According to Michael McConnell, an analyst with Pacific Crest, Google may choose to move to a different brand architecture to Nexus 7 today. To believe speculation, Nvidia should be set aside in favor of Qualcomm, which simply would advance with a component at a price much more attractive in comparison to the next generation of Tegra 4 which actually cost much more expensive to unit at its distribution.

More concretely, the architecture of which should be the question would grind quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro APQ8064 which offers the advantage of a multi-natively compatible with 3G and 4G mobile networks for cheap.

If this is true, the loss of a position as important in a tablet that sells as well as the Nexus 7, could reduce revenues Nvidia 200 to 250 million. It is ultimately a good war since both of them are still two big competitors are equal in the field of mobility, and then Nvidia also occupies an important place in the notebook market, domestic and other sectors.

To conclude, it is said that the next generation of Nexus 7 will be launched in the second quarter of 2013. Obviously, all this is still only assumptions that are still logical, but who have no been confirmed by official sources, but could follow the movement of low-cost terminals such as the latest Nexus.
