without comments

eric-schmidt-steve-jobsGone are the days when comparing the top 2 widely used Operating Systems had significant differences between them to write about.If Simplicity and intuitiveness is what you seek than iOS might be your perfect companion. If a Robust with expanded options, Android is a winner.

While it’s also not new to see the guys behind the biggest companies talk directly to consumers, this is just more well layed out than ever. Eric Schmidt, former CEO and current Chairman of Google, has written a post on Google+ aimed at helping the less technically sound folks to switch from iPhone to Android.

While the device wasn’t launched on the various leaked dates, however now, the famous Twitter personality EvLeaks has posted the render of a white Nexus 5, which as per the tweet will launch on Novemeber 1 and as per various other leaks it will be priced at $349!

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…

Nexus 5 packaging reveals White version could be coming, with… BLUETOOTH!

without comments

nexus 5 white

We have seen it on the Google Play store. We have seen it in black. Now, we have seen it in white, sort of. A new leaked image has surfaced showing off what seems to be the Google Nexus 5′s official retail package, showing off a white variant as well.

Yes, it seems that the Nexus 5 will be coming in White too, just like its predecessor, just hopefully a bit sooner after launch than the White Nexus 4. There is a catch though, it seems that only the rear panel will be white, the side and front will remain black. So, in essence, you’ll just have a black Nexus 5 with a white back. Yes, considering you always stare at the front of the device, and the fact that you’re likely to add a lovely Amzer case onto that beast, you are likely to hate the fact that the ‘white’ Nexus 5 is just black.

Don’t feel too bad though, iPhone 5c users also have a black front bezel no matter what colour their device is, same goes for all of Nokia’s Lumia smartphones and select other phones by other smartphone makers. We can only dream for a white Nexus 5, that is actually white…

This is Nexus 5: Google accidentally bring the Nexus 5 online

without comments

nexus 5

Google just inadvertently unveiled the new Google Nexus 5 on the Google Play store, adding to it the starting price and some other tidbits of information that everyone has been eagerly waiting for.

This is what we know now:

  • The Google Nexus 5 will retail for $349, for the 16GB model, a 32GB model will also be launched
  • The Google Nexus 5 will feature a 2,300mAh battery
  • The Google Nexus 5 will launch on October 28
  • The Google Nexus 5 will run on the new Android 4.4 KitKat
  • The Google Nexus 5 will have a 5-inch 1080p display
  • The Google Nexus 5 will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 SoC

This is what we don’t know:

  • Will Android 4.4 KitKat devices taste like chocolate if you lick them?
  • Will LG make enough Google Nexus 5 device to cope with demand?
  • Will the rumoured $299 Nexus 4 LTE pack 8GB or 16GB of storage?
  • Will the Google Nexus 5 last at least half a day of heavy usage off of that tiny battery?

For now, we will have to speculate, just 10 days to go until Google is set to unveil the new Google Nexus 5!

Nestle teases Android 4.4 KitKat debut for October 28

without comments

Have a break, have a KitKat. Sadly, the treat is the only KitKat anyone can look forward to for at least the next two weeks. Nestle today released yet another teased leaning towards the 28th of October being the date on which Google will be unveiling the latest version of Android, and their new Nexus line.

Last year, Google unveiled the Nexus 4 and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean on October 29, it looks like they’ll be doing something similar just 364 days later. Nestle’s KitKat Twitter handle has been dropping hints towards the official launch date of Android 4.4 KitKat, first referring to “Everybody dance now.” that was sung by the 28th Street Crew and today to “This is it” the Michael Jackson movie which was released on October 28, 2009. Overall we are more than likely to see the devices on the 28th, 3 days earlier than rumours have suggested and just six days after both Apple and Nokia are set to unveil their latest line ups.

Google is expected to officially launch the Nexus 4 LTE, Nexus 5, Nexus 10 and Android 4.4 KitKat, maybe less or maybe even more. For now, have a break…

LG pranks people with their new 84-inch ‘Ultra Reality’ display

without comments

If you’re having a rough day or just want to have a great laugh, then you are in for quite a treat. A while back LG decided to prank some people by making use of their latest 84-inch Ultra Reality television set, and boy is it funny.

LG took to Spain this time in order to create some great viral content to show off just how realistic everything looks on their new 84-inch LG Ultra Reality television. LG cleverly replaced a window in an office building with one of their new displays and then invited some Spaniards in for job interviews. During the interview, the display goes on to show a huge meteor approach the city and then completely destroy it. Needless to say, many are sure to have had to go and get a change of clothes after the prank. Once again, LG knows just how to do some great marketing, maybe it will rub off on the utterly poor performing HTC…

Have a look at the video, if you haven’t seen it yet and let us know what you think of it. You’re in for a laugh!

LG Google Nexus 5 leaked through FCC, looks intriguing

without comments

lg-nexus-5-fcc-1379000165

It’s most definitely no secret that the next generation Google Nexus smartphone is coming soon, apparently as the LG D820. Thanks to the FCC and some nosy tech heroes, the LG Nexus 5 has been caught in some good quality photos during its FCC certification process, which was concluded a while ago already.

The Nexus 5 will once again be made by LG, which at this point is no surprise. The next Nexus will be called the Google Nexus 5, or LG Nexus 5 D820, both some equally bitter pills to swallow. Either way, LG and Google are gearing up for the launch of the first device to feature the upcoming iteration of Google Android 4.4 KitKat, which is expected to officially launch on the Google Nexus 5 somewhere towards the end of October. Not much is known about the Nexus 5 other than the fact that it will carry a 5-inch FHD display and a much improved camera over its predecessor.

Then again, its design is pretty much out there now so a launch is imminent. You can count on us to keep you updated!

New Yahoo! logo finally unveiled, looks simple and elegant

without comments

tumblrinlinemsmvvledqx1qz4rgp

After 29 days of constantly switching out their logo, Yahoo! has finally unveiled their new corporate logo and it is looking quite good. The new Yahoo! logo reminds one of Apple’s design philosophy; simple, yet elegant.

The new Yahoo! logo has finally been unveiled after the company showed off 29 possible new picks for their corporate logo each day for the last month. The new logo looks great to me, despite many voicing their strong dislike of the logo on social media channels. Many even went as far as to joke that with all the switching of logos, Yahoo just opted for their old logo as users are more than likely to have forgotten what it looked like. The new logo looks plain and simple and reminds me of Apple in a sense, it’s elegant and most definitely an improvement over the previous choice.

Yahoo! is entering into a new era of their corporate strategy, they’re changing quite well thanks to their new female leader, Marissa Mayer, and despite change sometimes being difficult, it seems to be quietly embraced by all after Yahoo! overtook Google as the world’s most visited website a few weeks ago for the first time in almost six years.

Welcome back Yahoo! We love the new look!

Nexus 4 gets price dropped to $199 once-off, successor in sight

without comments

nexus4-8gb

Nothing says “Nexus 5 coming very soon” quite like Google slashing the price for the current Google Nexus 4, made by LG, by 25%. That is right, the Nexus 4 is currently down to just $199 once-off, making it more affordable than the Nexus 7 tablet for the first time ever.

LG has been rumoured to be behind the next Nexus, quietly dubbed the Nexus 5, which is more than likely to feature a 5-inch 1080p display to give its name that double edge sword feeling. Curiously enough LG is set to launch their latest tablet, the weird looking LG G Pad 8.3 at IFA 2013 next week, could the Nexus 5 be seen then too? In all likelihood, the Google Nexus 5 is more than likely set to launch much later this year alongside the long rumoured upcoming version of Android, Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie, but the current Nexus getting a steep price cut from its already delicious price makes it quite the hot device.

Get the stock Android experience now for just $199 and remember to get your hands on all of Amzer’s great Google Nexus 4 accessories!
