After the failure of the Tegra 4, will Nvidia’s new Tegra 4i make it to your future smartphone?

without comments

tegra-4i

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.

Is Samsung Galaxy Gear a flop show?

Reports as well as leaked sales document on Geek.com suggest that Samsung’s much hyped and much awaited smartwatch from Samsung is not doing very well. The leaked document suggests that the return rate at a major American retailer is well over 30%, which isn’t something Samsung would have wanted for it’s first smartwatch. Samsung has reportedly asked it’s employees to figure out why the return rates are so high.

Although the product is first of it’s kind, there is very little productive use of the watch which could be seen as one of the reasons for it’s cold start in the market. What do you think?

This dude uses Siri to get a date, got to give it to the guy for using something different than the regular bunch of stale pick up lines. The video has received over half a million views and reportedly a behind the scenes video is also in the works. What do you think?

BBM is now available on the Apple App Store and Google Play Store!

bbm-logo-05-2013-560x292

Good news everyone with common sense! The cross platfrom BlackBerry Messenger, or BBM, application is now live on both the Google Play and iTunes App stores for download onto compatible Android and iPhone smartphones!

BBM first started rolling out late last month, but after an overwhelming demand, some errors caused by the overuse of the leaked Android BBM app, loads of fake BBM apps and more, the rollout was delayed. Now, we can finally get a taste of the good life again, even if the company’s image is in ruins, especially after killing the rollout last time. Users will have to sign up upon downloading the app and will be allocated BlackBerry PINs once completed.

BBM is the world’s fastest, most secure and most cost effective way to communicate with others. It’s PIN based system also keeps you from revealing personal information to strangers. BlackBerry chose just the right time to unload considering tomorrow’s big day for Apple, and Nokia’s farewell…

Did Jony Ive design iOS 7 in Microsoft Word? This guy shows you how!

without comments

There has been a lot of scrutiny and jokes surrounding the new iOS 7’s user interface design. Some trolls suggests that it was made by crayon wielding toddlers, other suggest that is was painted by monkeys in the jungle, but what if it was just a ‘simple’ Microsoft Word jobs?

Designer Vaclav Krejci went ahead and made quite a detailed video showing us all how to recreate iOS 7 in Microsoft’s Word application. It’s so crazy that it actually seems true! Krejci went ahead and redrew iOS 7 screenshots using all the tools readily available to millions of MS Office users around the world. The finished product is pretty amazing and almost identical to Apple’s rendition of iOS 7. So, did Jony Ive’s InDesign license expire and Papa Cook refuse to renew it, leaving Word as the only option, or does this designer just know all the simple tricks there is and had a lot of time on his hand?

Wow. Just wow. Tomorrow we are more than likely going to see some great new iOS 7 products from Apple with their new iPad line, just remember that you can still recreate that colourful UI on your good old Windows machine…
