Amzer added excitement to CES this year by unveiling one of their most anticipated products – Amzer Control. Amzer bridges the gap of smart interaction between you and your appliances with the launch of Amzer Control . Users can now take control of their appliances in a way yet so unexplored.
AMZERcontrol™ uses MESH node networking along with IFTTT web service which enables you to control the AMZERcontrol™ Personal Lighting System, AMZERcontrol™ Wireless Plug and more using an awesome, intuitive AMZERcontrol™ App available for iOS, Android and Windows Phone. Yes, we love the added platform support!
There is reason to talk about the iWatch since there was a rumour stating that when we got an update about a possible timetable. Another report later stated that Apple might not be able to cope with the mass production needs of this hardware pushing it to late 2014.
October is when Apple would apparently get the iWatch to the masses. Apple is much clear about it’s stand on wireless charging : they hate it! Until now, new rumours suggest that Apple is looking at Wireless charging as an option and is serious on developing this technology for it’s wearable accessory.
Sony’s announced their latest USB flash drive and it features dual micro USB and USB 2.0 connectors. It is compatible with devices running Android version 4.0.3-4.3, but compatibility for Android version 4.4 should also arrive soon.
These drives are fully compatible with USB OTG for which devices act as hosts. They are priced at $19.99, $29.99, or $62.99, for the three storage capacities i.e. 8GB , 16GB and 32GB.
Samsung just patented a Transparent Display technology that would enable users to interact with touch interaction from the back of the phone. Right now, there are no obvious indications that Samsung’s working to deliver a system like this in a Galaxy smartphone anytime soon.
The new and enhanced so-called Type-C connector would be of almost the same size as a microUSB used on current phones only with a number of enhancements. Major ones include faster charging and a lightning-like ability to choose what way you use.
These connectors would start rolling out next year by Q2 and would be incorporated by phones later after.
As we get close to one of the most anticipated events of 2014 – CES ’14, it is expected that hardware manufacturers like Nvidia, Broadcom and Nvidia are gearing up for launching 64 bit processors of their own.
Google and the various System-on-a-Chip (Soc) designers have been under pressure to bring 64-bit computing to Android. Just after Apple launched the iPhone 5S, Samsung’s CEO JK Shin confirmed that the Korean company planned to ship 64-bit SoCs next year.
Answering a very important question here, Is 64 bit important for Android? Well, the straight answer is No. As far as i’m aware Android is not at all capable of taking advantage of the 64 bit architecture and hence requires a major update. At this point there is very less known of how an overhaul like this is to mean anything to the end user and no where is this relevant question answered.
If the news has to be believed then Apples future devices may very well have Motion Sensing Technology. It could also mean that Apples stagnant iTV is getting a revamp with this update. Apple is making sure that they do everything to keep their devices to par with the latest tech.
We all posses smartphones and/or tablets and we are consciously aware of how much of backup each one of them is capable of providing. We are also aware of the new “Qi” standard charging to wirelessly charge our cellphone – although slow but this does get the work done.
However i beg to differ, i still believe that Qi is not true wire-less charging as you still have to plug the charger into the wall and the device has to be stationary and you possibly can’t get any more freedom than you would get with a standard wall charger.
We do know that each one of us, even as you read this are being exposed to multiple signals – WiFi signals,Radio signals,Cellphone signals,etc. and the principle behind all these is that they travel by using charged particles. Using such many more concepts, folks of the Duke university have setup an experiment to see if they can truly making the process of charging gadgets – wireless.
A harvesting array is an array of specialized cells that were able to output 7.3-volts of electricity. How many amps? Probably not many but very much satisfactory for a prototype. We are not even close to the final product but we do find the direction very promising.
According to a report in Bloomberg, Samsung is working on a Galaxy series smartphone with a three-sided bended display. The phone reportedly uses an upgraded version of Samsung’s Youm technology, which is also found on the Galaxy Round.
This news surfaced when a Patent made by Samsung early this year was made public on the website yesterday.This application talks about a smartphone with bended/ wrapped around display on the three sides of the phone and its use-cases.Bloomberg also says that this phone could make it’s appearance in the first half of 2014 beyond which no details are available.
After a humongous failure by Nvidia to push the Tegra 4 to see the light of the day, the company is ready with it’s latest offering in terms of the new Tegra 4i which Nvidia believes shall be rocked by major smartphones next year.
However we need to slow down in terms of expectations just in case we are overlooking the fact that the Tegra 4i is a slightly scaled down version of the Tegra 4 with added LTE/HSPA+ Baseband support. NVIDIA is confident that the 4i should launch in Q1 2014, and actually ship by Q2 at the latest which is backed up by the fact that AT&T has already certified the 4i for its future smartphones.
In any case, let’s just hope the new Tegra 4i atleast stands as a competitor taking the current Qualcomm dominated markets in consideration.
