Is 64 Bit Processing Going To Change The Landscape in 2014?

without comments

android-logo-with-64-bits-qualcomm-nvidia-broadcomAs 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.

xprimesensesensor071613Apple has just recently announced PrimeSense – A tech partner for the famous Microsoft Kinect hardware. This deal was sealed at a whooping $345 Million.

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.

Will Apple’s iWatch offering make the scenario for Smartwatches any good?

without comments

ipod-nano-watchesWith the markets raving and experimenting the fundamental uses of Smartwatches, one thing that remains common is the ongoing rumor roundups of two biggies – Apple and Google entering and saving the sad state of watches that act as an extension of our smartphones as of now.

While users on other side trying to make do with the learning curve associated with these devices, there are some like the Pebble who have really shown a direction to these manufacturers. One manufacturer may be looking to shake things up – Apple . Reports suggest that Apple intends to introduce a pair of iWatch models with varying screen sizes: one for men, and one for women.

Apple is apparently planning to bring in two variants – one for men and the other for women with differences only in the screen sizes with one measuring 1.7 inches and the other at 1.3 inches respectively both boasting OLED displays for better readability. However, it’s wise to wait as of now till we have any word on what apple intends to make these devices work on and how different will they really be compared to current offerings.

Apple allegedly building a large, curved display iPhone for late 2014

without comments

Apple is allegedly working on a curved display iPhone with a bigger screen for the second half of 2014 say folks at Bloomberg who say they have some sources at Apple to back this up. The expected iteration of the iPhone would make a public appearance in the second half of 2014 and would also feature a technology (that Apple is now working on) which would sense different level of pressures on the touch panel.

Apple is rumoured to introduce two and not of  these and will reportedly be Apple’s largest phones to date, at 4.7 and 5.5 inches. However, these two devices are rumoured to be stuck in their testing phases as we speak. We are aware that Apple does lots of experimentation in terms of hardware and testing and we would still keep ourselves a bit skeptical till we see any official hints being dropped by Apple.

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

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…

iPhone 5s is the world’s fastest smartphone, officially kicks Snapdragon 800 device butt

without comments

iphonesuccess

What comes in Silver, Gold and Space Gray, has a TouchID fingerprint reader and a killer Apple A7 64-bit SoC? That’s right, the iPad 5, wait, no, the iPhone 5s. What has also been crowned the world’s fastest smartphone? No, not the LG G2; the iPhone 5s in all of its dual core glory!

Which? magazine conducted an official, independent Geekbench test of the iPhone 5s, Galaxy S4, LG G2, HTC One and other smartphones to see precisely which is the world’s fastest, and if Apple’s dual core A7 SoC with its 64-bit architecture stands a chance against the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 SoC, which many have regarded as the industry’s best. The A7 turned out to leave the Snapdragon 800 sobbing in a pool of tears, to become the world’s fastest processor, both in single core and multi core tasks. The LG G2 came out second, with the Galaxy S4 coming in third, it was first in June, and the HTC One going down to the fourth spot. The iPhone 5c beat both the Galaxy S4 Mini and HTC One Mini.

This just once again proves that it doesn’t matter how many core you have, it’s about how you make use of those cores that counts!

Here are their results:

Apple iPhone 5s: 1410 (single core score), 2561 (multi core score)
LG G2: 882 (single core score), 2355 (multi core score)
Samsung Galaxy S4: 687 (single core score), 1939 (multi core score)
HTC One: 643 (single core score), 1805 (multi core score)
Apple iPhone 5c: 711 (single core score), 1281 (multi core score)
Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini: 649 (single core score), 1135 (multi core score)
HTC One Mini: 477 (single core score), 880 (multi core score)

Chinese couple sold their daughter for an iPhone and some shoes

without comments

iphone5s-5c

Some people sell some vital organs for the latest iDevices, others, however, sell their children. Chinese media are reporting that a Shanghai couple sold their daughter, the latest of three children, and spent the proceeds on some lavish products.

Yes, the Shanghai couple sold their daughter for an iPhone. They advertised their daughter online for between $4,000 and $5,000 in order for her to get adopted. They stated that they wanted the child to have a better life than their current two children are having. They got arrested for illegal human trafficking after purchasing an Apple iPhone, some high end sports shoes and more lavish products. Of course they opted to get a new iPhone instead of using the money to improve their and their children’s lives.

When last did you hear about someone selling their kidney or child for a Samsung? Never? Oh…

Twitter allows all your pesky stalkers to Direct Message you, without you following them

without comments

twit

Wouldn’t you just love it if anyone using Twitter could send you a direct message, whether you follow them or not? It was a rhetorical question, of course you would not like that, imagine getting a million spam messages per day. Point proven.

Twitter has started experimenting with a new feature that will allow users to allow anyone using Twitter to send them Direct Messages, whether they follow said person or not. Now of course it would lighten everyone’s timelines from brands constantly interacting with every single human being alive trying to solve their queries and adding a fullstop, a greeting or anything else before the persons handle. Now let’s look at the cons. Paedophiles get easy access to kids using Twitter. Spammers can harass loads of people that would otherwise have been pretty difficult to do. All of your exes or stalkers can now constantly send you messages, making your phone sing with notifications just as you were about to dose off.

So. Yes, the feature has to be enabled by the user first, but I would not recommend it, I already get enough DM spam, from everyone I follow, now imaging if all of the 200,000,000+ Twitter users could message you…
