ADATA DashDrive Elite HE720 External Hard Drive Review

Are you looking for an external hard drive? Tweaktown has recently reviewed the ADATA ultra thin external hard drive.

The ADATA HE720 is one of those such drives, and apparently ADATA knows this too, marketing the drive as the "thinnest of them all". Coming in at 8.9mm thick it appears the engineers over at ADATA took the time to sand this enclosure by hand to achieve this, as the direct competitor, the Toshiba Canvio, is 9mm thick.

Apple with new patent on lessening damage from drops


Apple developed a system that magically flips iPhones into the proper position during a fall to lessen damage. Yes, Apple has patented a method that turns your phone into a cat.

apple_wants_your_iphone_to_be_more_cat_like_and_less_like_toast_new_patent_designed_to_lessen_drop_damage

US Patent #20130073095 describes a "Protective Mechanism for an Electronic Device" that appears to use centrifugal force to reorient an iPhone in the event of a drop or fall. From the patent drawings, it looks like a small motor with a weight on one end would spin up and make the phone flip into an orientation that would lessen damage to sensitive parts like the screen.

The patent also mentions alternative methods that would deploy airfoils to levy aerodynamics to reorient the phone. There is also mention of cables that could be jettisoned to catch the phone mid fall, and other far out there concepts like gas canisters used in conjunction with thrust nozzles to reorient the phone. Below you can see more of the artwork courtesy of Apple Insider.

The patent states:

In one example, the protective mechanism is configured to alter the device orientation as the device is falling. This may allow a less vulnerable portion of the device to impact the surface at the end of a freefall. For example, the protective mechanism may be activated to rotate the device so that it may impact a surface on its edge, rather than on a screen portion.

Nexus 5 details being leaked


Android and Me have received an an image from an anonymous source, claiming that they work for Google, telling them the image below is the real deal on the Nexus 5. Their source claims that the Nexus 5 would be released later this year, October to be precise, and that they are evaluating several prototypes from different manufacturers.

rumortt_leaked_specs_on_nexus_5_megalodon_would_be_a_smartphone_powerhouse

One of these prototype's is LG's, who made the Nexus 4, and is going under the codename of "Megalodon". Megalodon looks like a serious powerhouse, but before we get into them we will state that this is a serious rumor, and half of these specs are most likely not correct:
  • 5.2" OLED Display with 1920x1080 resolution
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 @ 2.3 GHz
  • 3GB LPDDR3 Ram
  • 16/32/64GB of internal storage
  • 16MP rear camera by OmniVision (4k video recording @30FPS, 1080p video recording @60FPS, Real Time HDR & HDR video recording, optical image stabilization, BSI 2.0)
  • 2.1MP front camera (1080p video recording @30FPS)
  • 3300 mAh Lithium Polymer battery
  • Front positioned stereo speakers
  • Qualcomm RF360 (LTE 150 Mbps & HSPA+)
  • Integrated DVB-T / ATSC-antenna
  • Gesture like controls (navigation, zoom, etc)

A Nexus 5 with a 5.2-inch display would make sense, since we're seeing more high-end smartphones feature bigger displays, like the Galaxy S4's 4.99-inch display. 3GB of RAM is quite insane, so is a 2.3GHz-clocked processor. The 16-megapixel rear-facing camera with 4k video recording is quite a step forward, as is the 3300mAh battery. I'd expect those specs to be the ones that change, but I do think we'll see Google put even more pressure on Apple going into the future.

With a huge market share, Android also enjoys most amount of malware


According to F-Secure, a security firm, Android accounted for 79% of all mobile malware in 2012. This is an increase of 66.7% and 11.25% for 2011 and 2010, respectively. Apple's iOS doesn't even attempt to come close to these numbers, and only accounted for 0.7% of mobile malware in 2012.

android_malware_numbers_are_staggering_with_the_os_accounted_for_79_of_all_mobile_malware_in_2012

Windows Mobile, Blackberry and Symbian all entered the pie with much less than Android, with 0.3%, 0.3% and 19%, for Windows Mobile, Blackberry and Symbian, respectively. The security firm also discovered that Android saw a surge in malware at the end of the year, but most of the malware is found in emerging markets. This means that most, not all, people in Europe and the US won't be affected, but everyone should always play it safe when opening up messages, links and emails.

Samsung not supporting Windows


With Samsung seeing so much success with their Android-based Galaxy range of devices, can you blame the company for digging on Microsoft's Windows Phone platform? Well, according to a new research note from Detwiler Fenton analyst Jeff Johnston, it looks like Samsung aren't interested in Windows Phone, the analyst says:

samsung_continue_to_show_no_love_for_windows_phone_they_have_no_interest_in_seeing_the_windows_phone_platform_succeed

There is no evidence that Samsung has any interest in seeing the Windows Phone platform succeed.

Quite a strong statement, but Samsung are seeing great success with Android, and are waiting in the wings with their Tizen platform, too. Johnston continues, saying that Samsung's "Windows Phone roadmap is limited to a small number of smartphones, none of which appear to be all that exciting."

The analyst finishes with "Having a successful Windows Phone 8 platform only means it will have another mobile platform (backed by deep pockets) to compete with. Samsung has a long way to go before we can take Tizen seriously however one thing seems certain, it is going to keep its foot on MSFT's throat as it pours money into Tizen."

Budget iPhone to be featured in different colours


Apple Insider is reporting that the Cupertino company will be keeping some old and bringing some new features to the table on it's upcoming budget model iPhone.

rumortt_upcoming_budget_iphone_to_be_featured_in_several_different_colors

Analysts are saying that Apple may release the cheaper iPhone with the same 4-inch Retina display featured in the current generation iPhone, and that it's half millimeter thick plastic case could come in as many as six different colors in addition to the traditional black and white.

That sounds like a very thin, very easy to break case, but it is reportedly reinforced with glass fibers which makes it as strong, if not stronger, than current phones with plastic cases. The colors will be similar to those found in iPod's and should appease the mass of teens who will flock to the cheaper device.

Swiftkey integrated with Galaxy S4


Samsung's Galaxy S 4 taps into Swiftkey knowhow for its builtin keyboard
We'd heard rumors that Swiftkey might have assisted Blackberry on its well-received (and often prescient) BB10 keyboard, but the app maker has now confirmed that its software is behind the Galaxy S 4's native keyboard. It's the first time that the company's publicly admitted to powering a handset manufacturer's keys and will sidestep the need for S 4 users to download its standalone app. Though, there's still plenty of reasons to download the app from Google play if you dig the customization options and themes of the original. Swiftkey's CTO Ben Medlock said that the keyboard is "at the heart of [Samsung's] flagship smartphone" and is hopefully just the first of many Android devices arriving with the company's voodoo already built in. We've added Ben's full statement after the break.
Update: The company reached out to us to clarify that while its prediction engine is at the heart of Samsung's keyboard it is not Swiftkey in the purest sense. The natural comparison it reached for? Android and TouchWiz.

Smartphone Accessories



Are you looking for accessories that are compatible with your smartphone? Well, you have came to the right website, because I am going to review a website that sells reasonably priced accessories that will suit the style that your smartphone has. Some of the things that the website is selling includes reasonably priced Bluetooth speakers, slim profile cases that have an external battery integrated into the body of the case. They also sell cables that might suit your multimedia needs for your smartphone.

The battery cases that they have only include the iPhone 4 Battery Case and iPhone 4S and unfortunely they do not have any products available for iPhone 5 (yet).  The battery capacities available includes 1450 mhA to 1500 mhA. They have a built in kickstand that allows you to place the phone in landscape mode and watch movies on your smartphone. Although their extended warranty is really expensive at $29.90 for another year which is about the cost of the product at $39.90

They have two types of Bluetooth audio devices which includes the Bluetooth headset or the Bluetooth speaker.

The Bluetooth headset that they are selling are the kind of headset that is simplistic in design which takes minimal space for storage. They are retailing it at a relatively cheap price of $49.99 with a limited 1 year warranty.

They are also selling the Bluetooth speaker that mimics Xmini's design by being small and compact. The speaker's outer casing is covered in Aluminium hence it is resistant to scratches and shock damage. They have also included a microphone that allows you to pick up calls during your music sessions with your iPod/iPhone products. The charging port is the same port that you use for your Apple products.

New Underwater Simulation Game - Infinite Scuba


 Cascade Game Foundry (CGF®) launchesInfinite Scuba™, the first product in their portfolio of next-generation simulation games. Infinite Scuba helps players of all ages experience the beauty, mystery and serenity of scuba diving in breathtakingly recreated dive sites from around the world.

"We are thrilled to collaborate with world authorities on scuba diving and environmentalism to create Infinite Scuba," says Kathie Flood, Managing Director at CGF and a 17-year veteran of the video game industry. Partners include PADI® (Professional Association of Diving Instructors), DEMA (The Diving Equipment and Marketing Association), Mission Blue (the Sylvia Earle Alliance) and 20 scuba equipment manufacturers, including SCUBAPRO, Body Glove, Oceanic and BARE. "Our partners," says Flood, "helped us create an incredibly immersive experience, one that delivers the real adventure of scuba diving to our players."

"As a featured gear manufacturer, we are very excited for the release of Infinite Scuba. It is very thorough and well thought-through, with excellent attention to details that will make a noticeable difference for real-life divers who play the game," says Kate Booth, Marketing Manager for the Americas - Johnson Outdoors Diving LLC, which includes the SCUBAPRO® and SUBGEAR®brands.

In the initial release of the downloadable game, players explore a shipwreck in Chuuk Lagoon, the site of a pivotal World War II battle that is now a renowned South Pacific dive destination. In the years since that battle, the Chuuk shipwrecks have transformed into thriving reefs. Players search for fish and coral, as well as artifacts from the war, each of which unlocks a page of local history or dive science. Players exploring the wrecks can take photos to share with friends and earn dive certifications which unlock additional content. Players can also purchase and download new equipment, challenges, and dive sites from inside the game.

"Scuba diving is an exciting, life-changing activity that can be enjoyed by people of all ages," says Kristin Valette, PADI Americas' Vice President of Marketing and Communications. "The PADI organization's goal is to help people learn to dive and appreciate the wonder of the underwater world. Through our partnership with Cascade Game Foundry, PADI and Infinite Scuba will introduce an even broader audience to the excitement of diving and encourage them to dive into the real thing."

"DEMA is extremely excited to be part of the launch of Infinite Scuba," commented Tom Ingram, Executive Director of DEMA. "The game is a positive fit with DEMA's mission of promoting sustainable growth in recreational diving and activities such as DiveCaching. Having the diver search for DiveCaches while diving in Infinite Scuba will showcase the adventure and excitement of discovering 'real treasure' underwater."

Facial recognition for Google Glasses


Google Glass
Facial recognition? Pah. Dahling, the only way to find someone in a crowd is to pick out what they're wearing. InSight is an app being developed for Google Glass by Duke University that helps you identify your chums, even when they've got their back to you, by channeling its inner Joan Rivers. All your pals have to do is submit some self-portraits to the app, which then creates a spatiogram -- identifying the colors, textures and patterns with which they've adorned themselves. That data is then pushed to Google Glass, hopefully allowing you to avoid the usual "I'm by the store, no, the other store" routine.

iPhone repair services


Are you an iPhone lover who wants some changes or modifications to your iPhone, because you feel left behind by your friends who keep changing phones every 2 years?  Or are you part of the other group of people who has had some bumps with your phone and needs to repair either the screen or back cover?  Well, please read the review of this website and you might find this supplier fits the bill for your iPhone customization desires.



So you might be wondering what does this website do and why should you visit it?   Well, it is a website that provides spare parts for your iPhone, iPod, iPad, and Samsung phones. They are basically providing spare parts for your smartphones, tablets and MP3 players so that you can customize and repair your gadgets without having to burn a hole in your pocket for official repair services from Apple or Samsung.

Not only can you choose to change your screen, you can also change the back plate and the charging port. Even the home button can be changed. They also have what's called “color swap iphone 4” which is such a unique service!  

For Samsung phones, they support the 3 generation of Galaxy S and the 5 generations of iPhone and iPad and iPod touch.

You can also pay them to do your phone repair for you, or even perform their iphone 4 color conversion, but you have to take note that this service is only available for Apple products.  It really isn’t necessary to have them do your repair for you, because they have posted a very self-explanatory guide on how you can repair your gadgets yourself.  They've definitely covered all the bases here!

  However, if you really cannot wait for the phone to be repaired, you can actually go to one of the 3 stores that they have around US (if you're near one) and get them to repair it for you. The stores are located at Coney Island, Sheepsheadbay and Sunset Pack and sorry to say,  they are all in New York - at least for now!

Check it out.

ASUS Transformer AiO launching Q2


ASUS Transformer AiO launching Q2 for $1,299 and up, marries Windows 8 desktop with monster Android tablet
We were beginning to think the ASUS Transformer AiO was just a figment of a summer daydream after hearing nothing of it since our chance look many months ago. As it turns out, we were right about the furtive FCC filing last December, and with all that paperwork in order, we've now been granted a formal introduction. The Transformer AiO (all-in-one) is very true to its name, as like the Autobots, it has two completely different configurations. In desktop mode, you're looking at a Windows 8 machine running on a Core i3 / i5 / i7, with a 2GB NVIDIA GeForce GT730M GPU, between 4 and 8GB of RAM, and up to a 2TB SATA HDD. It also has a DVD-RW optical drive (can you believe it?), a card reader, a bunch of ports and even a TV Tuner should you want one. Being a Windows 8 rig, it's not surprising that the 18.4-inch, 1,920 x 1,080 IPS display has ten-point multitouch, but it gets even more interesting when you free that screen from its desktop restraints.
Popping it from the dock means you're now looking at a monster tablet with its own internal specs: a quad-core Tegra 3, 2 gigs of RAM and 32GB of flash storage. If you're in the mood to continue peering at Redmond's squares, it'll work as a remote terminal for the "PC Station." But, if you've got a sweet tooth, you can switch the slate to Android mode and knock around in 4.1 Jelly Bean. The Transformer AiO (P1801) is expected to be available in North America early second quarter at $1,299 for the basic model, which doesn't sound all that extortionate given the versatility of the desktop-come-tablet.

Would Firefox OS fail?

Reading the opinion post from an Engadget editor, I cannot help but to also bring up some valid points that the editor brought up with regards to how Firefox OS would perform in this increasing squeezed out industry.

Mozilla is not only facing competition from Google in the browser wars with Chrome winning more market share then ever, but also facing competition in the smartphone wars with Google dominating with their Andriod platform, Microsoft throwing its weight behind it also and Ubuntu trying to enter the market also.

It also faces a flawed software design from the start as quoted from the editor, whereby he laments how the platform that Firefox OS is build on does not suit the target audience. "Like Chrome OS, there's little more here than a web browser running on top of Linux. But, unlike Mountain View's product, Mozilla has focused exclusively on mobile sites that are rarely as fast, stable or functional as their desktop counterparts. Ultimately the web-as-app approach doesn't work particularly well when you're trying to deliver a rich and smooth experience, especially on mobile. As Facebook has discovered, there are serious performance issues with HTML5. Mark Zuckerberg even went so far as to say that relying on it for mobile apps was one of the "biggest mistakes" the company has ever made. It doesn't help matters when you're trying to render that inefficient code on extremely low-end hardware, like the sub-1GHz single-core chip inside the ZTE Open."

The unfortunate truth is that Firefox OS just doesn't offer anything that consumers in developed markets want. Nor anything those in emerging markets need. Mozilla can tell us "the web is the ecosystem" or encourage us to "blaze your own path," but a budget Android handset does all the same things and more. During their shared keynote Kohli turned to Stephen Elop and told him he'd like to see $30 smartphones. If Firefox OS has any chance of succeeding, it will have to deliver a rock-solid browsing experience at prices near that and figure out a way to efficiently manage data consumption. Most importantly, it will need to learn the same lesson Apple and Facebook have -- HTML5 "apps" just don't cut it.

Judge orders new Apple vs. Samsung trial to reevaluate $450.5 million in damage awards


Judge orders new Apple vs Samsung trial to reevaluate $4505 million in damage awards
Samsung has tentatively been on the hook for $1.05 billion in penalties after allegedly infringing on Apple's patents, but that figure is about to change -- for better or for worse. Judge Koh has ordered a reevaluation of $450.5 million of the damages in a second trial, arguing that the jury set one damage figure per product where there were six infringement claims that had to be taken into account for each device. She also believes that Apple may be entitled to damages for sales not included in the original case. There's a chance Samsung can lower the amount it ultimately has to pay, but the extra factors and devices could easily worsen its situation. Koh hasn't set a trial date, either, but we'd like it to come soon: Apple versus Samsung is quickly becoming the battle that never ends.

Samsung could opt to use multiple processor types in the Galaxy S IV


We've already seen some leaked benchmarks from the upcoming Galaxy S IV, but it looks like we could expect the same thing we did with the Galaxy S III - different processors for different Galaxy S IV variants across the world. The news comes from the Taipei Times, who report from JP Morgan's note to clients, where they said:

rumortt_samsung_could_opt_to_use_multiple_processor_types_in_the_galaxy_s_iv

Similar to its previous Galaxy S3, Samsung is expected to adopt multiple solutions for the application processors and baseband chips in its new Galaxy S4, which will be unveiled in New York on March 14.

THis means that we might see the Galaxy S IV use Qualcomm's impressive Snapdragon 600 processor, while the rest of the world will see the Samsung-made octa-core Exynos 5 processor. Only time will tell, and in any case, no matter the processor you're going to get one powerhouse of a smartphone.

Google wants to get Glass on sale by end of this year for less than $1,500


Google is looking to get a "fully-polished" version of Glass on sale by the end of this year. The search giant has said that the augmented reality headset will cost "less than $1,500" when it eventually goes on sale. The headset has already been available for pre-order for $1,500, though those versions aren't the same as what will be released to the general public.

google_wants_to_get_glass_on_sale_by_end_of_this_year_for_less_than_1_500

As with all technology, the early adopters end up paying a premium to remain an early adopter. The Project Glass headset was announced last year and got a demonstration at Google I/O. The headset will be able to record pictures and video, provide directions, and much more, all controlled by your voice.

Maximize your returns on your software



With the rise of mobile phones and tablets, the landscape of software is no longer the same anymore. Developers have to cater to the mobile platform or risk being alienated. In addition, they also have to design their software to fit different screen sizes which adds onto the complexity of the software project that they have at hand. Not just that, the price that one can charge for their software has also gone down dramatically because of competition with those programmers that are willing to be paid lower. Here is where you can use scrum software that is provided by Inflectra to manage your software project and maximize your returns from your software project.

You can also use their other services like SpiraTest to test your software for its original functionality. It would run the software in an environment that allows you to test if the software works as intended under various scenarios.

For project managers, you can use SpiraPlan to help you organize the timeframe of your project and plan the deadlines that you ought to adhere to, to ensure that you finish the software on time and have time to debug and test the software.
