Samsung Galaxy S IV rumored to arrive in April with S Pen functionality

 Samsung IV (four)

We’ve been hearing a lot of buzz about Samsung‘s next flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S IV, and we don’t expect it die down anytime soon. The latest rumor fresh out of South Korea is that Samsung is preparing the Galaxy S IV for an April 2013 launch, and it’s said that the new handset will come with S Pen functionality right out of the box.

Multiple Korean sources are saying that the new phone will land in April, and the accompanying S Pen feature hints that Samsung is allegedly looking to bring some of the best features of their Note series to the flagship Galaxy S IV, which wouldn’t be too terribly surprising, even considering how different the two devices are just from the screen size alone.

The alleged April 2013 release windows is right on the money with a previous rumor that we heard at the beginning of the month, saying that Samsung was working on “Project J” that is set for an April 2013 announcement. However, an announcement and an actual release are completely different, so we’re not really sure what to believe at this point.

It’s rumored that the Galaxy S IV will come with a 5-inch 1080p AMOLED display, a quad-core Exynos 5440 chip, a 13-megapixel rear auto-focus camera, and will feature a slightly thicker 9.2mm body, a change that would make the S IV very Note-like this time around, and would explain the S Pen functionality.

Latest BB10(Blackberry OS 10) likely to be features video chat

It might be a good news for all BlackBerry lovers because something exciting coming up in their hand  soon.                                                          
Research in Motion may be working on integrating video calling to its popular  BlackBerry  Messenger service. According to industry speculation, the next version of the company's mobile operating system, named BB10, is likely to support video calling via its secure messaging service, just like Apple's FaceTime, Android's Google+ Hangout and Microsoft's Skype. 

RIM has already said it would be enhancing the communication suite of BBM by adding voice calling. However, a RIM executive recently told tech blog The Next Web that 'something else' is also on the horizon. Could video be that 'something'? 

Shop BlackBerry @ oshop

In the BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha update released by RIM, reviewers at CrackBerry had chanced upon a folder titled bbm_video in the notifications section. This folder contained a ringtone by the name of video_chat.m4a, same as the tone used in video chat on RIM's PlayBook tablet. 

Though there is no official confirmation, it is likely that such new features will be included in BB10, which is RIM's last shot at succeeding in the smartphone market. The company has lost a lot of market share since the first iPhone was launched, but is still praised for its BBM application. It has recently been dumped by Yahoo as well as several US government agencies in favour of iPhone and Android devices. 

RIM delayed the launch of BB10 operating system as it seemingly did not want to release a half-baked product in the market and drive away customers. Many consider BB10 to be the company's last hope of regaining the lost market share.

Apple iPhone 5 breaks sales record

Apple said that it received over 2 million advance bookings for iPhone 5 within the first 24 hours of pre-orders. This is double the number of pre-bookings the company received for the iPhone 4S last year.

Philip Schiller, the senior vice president of worldwide marketing for Apple called the customer response "phenomenal."

US mobile provider AT&T said it set a sales record with Apple's iPhone 5 over the weekend, making it the fastest-selling iPhone the company has ever offered. The carrier claimed on Monday that customers had ordered more iPhones from AT&T than any previous model both on its first day of pre-orders and over the weekend.

However, AT&T did not provide the exact sales figures of total iPhones sold. The company said iPhone 5 was still available for pre-order and would be available at AT&T retail stores from September 21.

On Friday, even as the day pre-orders began, Apple's initial stocks finished within a few hours and the shipping time for the device was extended to October instead of a week. And even though Apple iPhone 5 will be available in stores on September 21, a few buyers have already started lining up in front of the company's store on New York's 5th Avenue a week in advance. Technology website CNET has reported that people with heavy coats and sleeping bags were seen standing outside the retail outlet, popularly known as the Cube. Similar was the case at Apple's store on Regent Street in London to buy the iPhone 5 where some buyers have been already camping to buy the iPhone 5.

Apple is expected to sell approximately 10 million units of the iPhone 5 in September itself. Its arch rival Samsung's flagship Galaxy S III took around two months to reach the same milestone.

In August, Samsung Galaxy S III outsold Apple iPhone 4S in the US market for the first time ever in the previous quarter.

How Big Brands got their Names

How Big Brands got their Names 



Absurd Laws From Around the World

 Absurd Laws From Around the World

Ah yes, laws – the rules which govern all nations universally (exempting an interesting few). They protect ordinary citizens and provide consequences to those who break them, providing order so that the country may be stable and not anarchic. There are, however, an abundant amount of countries with laws that are just downright ridiculous, ranging from the United States to Swaziland. I present to you the top ten lists of absurdly ridiculous laws, in no precise order, from ten different countries.

10. China — One Child Policy

I am fairly certain that this will be the most well-known law on this list, for it has received much controversy. Put into effect in 1987, the law hoped to slow and even decrease China’s vast population of more than 1.3 billion. The law places a heavy tax on couples who choose to have more than one child. Debate rages on the ethnics of the law, supporters stating that China has taken a great step in targeting the overpopulation issue in, not only its own country, but in the world. Detractors, however, believe that restricting couples ability to raise a family of less than what they would like is morally wrong, and that abortion has increased because of parents wanting to have male offspring. Numerous groups have fought for its repeal, and only time will tell what the future brings. 09 more after the break...
 09. Greece — Banning of Electronic Games

This law was first passed on September 3, 2002, and at first only illustrated the banning of video games in Internet Cafes as a way to combat illegal gambling, but as of December 8, 2003, it has been “revised” to include the banning of all electronic games. The reason was that lawmakers concluded that it would be too difficult to distinguish illicit gambling games from other harmless games, like online chess. I couldn’t imagine this law being implemented in my home of the United States, in which teenagers are infected with the “first-person shooter epidemic,” in which franchises like Halo and Call of Duty have sold millions of copies. However, other people have formed groups like the Mothers Against Video Game Addiction and Violence (MAVAV), which aim to have electronic games banned in countries, like the United States, believing that the increased violence in modern games increases instability and crime among young kids and adolescents.

08. France — No pig may be called Napoleon by its Owner

Yes, the great French general and emperor Napoleon Bonaparte, responsible for conquering most of Europe during the Napoleonic Wars (1799-1815), before finally being bested at Waterloo by the Duke of Wellington. The French had the utmost respect for him, and it is thought that George Orwell’s famous short story, Animal Farm, in which the pig representing Stalin was named Napoleon, launched the laws publication. Even in France, the pig is often referred to as “Caesar” rather than “Napoleon” in the book, but this is more due to Napoleon being represented as Stalin rather than being represented as a pig. Today, however, many people consider the law a joke and hardly anyone respects it, let alone know it exists.

07.Germany —Pillows are Labeled as “Passive Weapons”

Hmmm, if attacked by a thug, would you rather be assaulted with a knife or a pillow? As for myself, I would choose a pillow, yet in Germany they seem to think otherwise, in which pillows are labeled “passive weapons.” Perhaps if filled with rocks or used for suffocation maybe? In the meantime, however, I prefer to choose a gun as self-defense rather than a fluffy sack.

06. Israel — Picking your nose is Prohibited on the Sabbath

Ah yes, the nation of Israel, formed shortly after WWII, in 1948, as a place where Jews could reside without being persecuted. The country is internationally famous as being tough and resilient, fighting near constant war with its neighbors for nearly its entire existence. It is centered around key issues such as the rights of the Palestinians, and is the source of much controversy. Well, back to the law, a rabbi is legally allowed to, and often does, prohibit church-goers from picking their noses during the Sabbath. This law exists, not so much because of it being disgusting (although that is obviously a contributing factor), but also in that it is believed that the potential bleeding caused by the loss of nasal hair may result in violation of the religious code of sanctity. Thus, the law is only directed to believers of the Jewish faith, exempting ordinary citizens.

05. Swaziland — Forbidding Girls to Wear Pants

Swaziland is listed as one of the world’s absolute poorest and most poverty stricken countries, in which the average lifespan is between 30-35 years old. The people are suppressed by corrupt governmental control and a tyrannical and power hungry “king” (dictator), the current one being King Mswati III, who has passed a number of bizarre laws in an attempt to reestablish “traditional values” (aka patriarchic society), in which girls are unequal and considered inferior to their male counterparts. Thus, women are forbidden to wear clothing resembling menswear, and if one is caught in public displaying pants, they are subject to having them forcibly ripped off of them by soldiers, and humiliated.

04. USA/California — Animals Publicly Mating

That’s right, animals are prohibited from publicly mating with each other within 1,500 feet of any tavern, school or church. I selected a strange law from California because it happens to be the state I live in. What I wonder is how this law is enforced, and why this would be a concern with our citizens or local school children. I have never yet had the sudden urge to view animals mating during church, and I have yet to see any kind of “guards” or “regulators” who would be responsible for keeping animal couples from engaging within 1,500 feet of a school. As a resident of California, I can say that this law is, overall, just ridiculous and ignored by the people.

03. Philippines — License Plates Law

This law is very interesting in that it is so absurdly specific. It states that Cars whose license plates end with a 1 or 2 are not allowed on the roads on Monday, 3 or 4 on Tuesday, 5 or 6 on Wednesday, 7 or 8 on Thursday, and 9 or 0 on Friday. I can’t possibly understand what would be the goal behind the makings of this law, and how it would be implemented and enforced. Its logic has to do with some kind of identification and status procedure, but the law is so subtle and irrelevant it was difficult to do in-depth research on.

02. Japan —Honor Law of Marriage

This law isn’t so much “absurdly ridiculous” in the sense of others on this list, but it is surely considered very strange by most readers (especially American) and truly depicts the intense respect and honor Japanese people give to their family. This law illustrates that an elder brother, by law and honor, can formally ask for his younger brother’s girlfriend’s hand in marriage, and both must agree to it. Surprisingly, there are many laws similar to this in other Asian countries and displays how the Asian people still have not let go of the thousand-year tradition of respecting your elders. We Americans still do as well, we’re just not as serious about it.

01. United Kingdom — Death In parliament

Great Britain is famous throughout Europe for its number of ridiculous laws and taxes, dating back hundreds of years. Over 2,000 laws have been repealed since its long history. Justice Secretary Jack Straw has been on a crusade to get rid of all of Britain’s most absurd laws, and one of his top priorities was this one, in which it was illegal to die in Parliament. This law, which as of now is no longer in affect (wonder why) was internationally criticized and laughed at for being pointless, as there could obviously be no punishment, and if a government official were to abruptly collapse from a heart attack far from the exit and need urgent help, the paramedics would first move him outside before operating on him? In case he died in the building? God Save the Queen, it is no longer in affect now.

Facebook Wants To Hire 17-Year-Old

Nive Jayasekar created a mobile app for Home Depot over a weekend and won $10,500—and got an offer to work at Facebook.

She's only 17.

The Social-Loco conference organized a hackathon event held June 16-17, sponsored by big brands like Home Depot.

Jayasekar entered, drawn by the prizes. She decided to develop a project organizer for the home-improvement chain as a Windows Phone app, because that was a special prize category.

She swept the event with her app, which made it easy for both novices and experienced gardeners to find materials for landscaping projects. (Those were originally separate prize categories; she developed a single app that addressed both audiences.),But she barely made it to the conference to accept her prizes. After she found out she won, her mom had to drive her to San Francisco.
It was good timing: Because she was late, she got to present her winning app right before Emily White, Facebook's director of mobile partnerships, was due to speak. They met backstage and White offered her a summer internship.
"Nive is amazing and I'm going to be working for her someday," White said at the conference.
But here's the thing, and it tells you everything you need to know about the war for talent in Silicon Valley right now: The recent graduate of Monta Vista High School in Cupertino, Calif., who's headed to Carnegie Mellon University in the fall, wouldn't say whether she'd taken Facebook up on the offer.
"The recruiting process is still going on," she said.
Facebook couldn't comment on where things stood.
Let's review: A 17-year-old just got an internship offer from Facebook, on the spot after winning a programming contest. And she hasn't decided whether she's taking the job yet.
Meanwhile, she's porting the app to Apple's iOS devices and Android smartphones.

Apple iPad 3

Apple has announced its new third-generation iPad, which comes packing a new high-resolution Retina display. “Until you see it you can’t understand how amazing it is”, said CEO Tim Cook.


The new iPad is an oxymoron: It is at once a strong leap forward that will let Apple hold onto its huge market and mindshare, and yet the new features are not so different from the iPad 2 as to cause an I-need-the- new-iPad-to-change-my-life panic for current owners.

The new high-resolution display runs at 2048×1536 at a pixel density of 264PPI. That’s 3.1M total pixels. The new display is powered by an A5X processor with improved quad-core graphics capabilities. The processor itself is dual-core.The new iPad maintains the current 10 hour battery life with 9 hours on 4G. It’s 9.4mm thick and weighs 1.4 pounds.There is also a brand new feature in the iPad, an iSight camera on the front and a new rear camera that runs at 5MP, with a backside illuminated sensor, 5 element lens and a hybrid IR filter. It looks to be the same camera equipment shipped in the iPhone 4S, aside from the slightly lower resolution sensor. This allows the new iPad to record HD movies at 1080P .

The device ships with iOS 5.1, the latest version of Apple’s software. It will be available for all users of iOS devices and comes with new Siri support for Japanese users, which will roll out over the next few weeks.Apple’s voice dictation feature is also coming to the new iPad as well. This is not the Siri assistant feature, but it will allow for live transcription of your voice.

The new iPad also has quad-core LTE 4G capabilities, allowing for much faster network access and download speeds. The new chip is dual-mode and includes 3G HSPA+ for up to 21Mbps, and dual-carrier HSDPA for up to 42Mbps.In a very nice new addition, the new iPad will also act as a 4G hotspot, something that the current iPad does not do.

A host of Apple apps were updated to work with its Retina display, including iWork, iMove and Garage Band. Each of these apps will have a free update available for existing users.

Apple also introduced the brand new iPhoto for iPad, a basic photo editing, photo-beaming from device to device and a new Photo Journals (collages)feature. The new version of iPhoto offers a host of gesture-focused photo editing options including utomatic horizon straightening as well as more detailed information about the images you’ve imported from other cameras. Images up to 19 megapixels in size are supported.

Apple also announced an upgrade to its ‘iTunes in the Cloud’ product, which now supports seamlessly streaming purchased movies to all iOS devices. These movies will be available in 1080P, which is a nice boost.
The new version of the Apple TV also supports 1080P and comes with a newly designed interface that is heavily reminiscent of iOS. It will still run $99 and will be available beginning next week.

Apple’s Tim Cook said about the company’s role in a ‘post-PC’ world “We’re talking about a world where the PC is no longer the center of your digital world,” he said, “but is just another device. The devices you use the most are more portable, more personal, and dramatically easier to use than any PC has ever been.The iPad is reinventing personal computing.”
Last year alone, Apple sold some 172 million of these post-PC devices, including the iPad, iPhone and iPod. 62M of them in the final quarter alone. If you count the iPad as a PC, it outsold every other major manufacturer last quarter with 15.4M units in sales.

The new iPad is priced at $499 for 16GB, $599 for 32GB, $699 for 64GB. And $629, $729, and $829 for 4G. It will be available on March 16th in the US and available for pre-order from yesterday. It will be available from March 23 for 32 other countries. The iPad 2 will continue to be sold for $399 in a 16GB flavor and $529 for a WiFi + 3G 16GB model.

In india it will be available in coming few months.

Tata Megapixel car 2012

Tata Motors showed the Tata Megapixel concept at the Geneva Motor Show overnight - it's a four-seater range extended electric vehicle (REEV). An evolution of last year's Pixel concept, the Megapixel uses four in-wheel 10 kW motors and a 325 cc single cylinder petrol engine that generates 22 kW while charging the lithium ion phosphate battery. The result is a range of 900 km (559 miles) and an electric-only range of 87 km (54 miles). The Megapixel has several other killer party tricks, including acutely turning wheels which give it a turning radius of just 2.8 meters (9.2 ft), which is small enough to do a U-turn in a narrow street, and an inductive home charging system - park over the induction pad and it charges itself without needing to be plugged in. There's also some very useful automatic sliding double doors. 

The Megapixel is a good looking little beastie, and was developed by Tata's design centres in India, the UK and Italy. As a global car concept, this is both the company's evolving idea of the ideal city car for global urban environments, and the one you're most likely to see first if you don't live in India.
Tata Motors is India's largest automobile company, with enormous prospects. A few decades from now, India will be a superpower, with the world's largest population having transitioned from bicycles to scooter and now aspiring to drive a car. India's vehicle ownership ratios are currently the same as America's were in 1912 - when the Model T Ford was top seller.

Tata is already huge with consolidated revenues of US$27 billion in 2010-11 and operations in the UK, South Korea, Thailand, Spain and South Africa. Among them is Jaguar Land Rover, the distribution of Fiat cars in India, and the market leader in commercial vehicle sales in India. Indeed, it is already the world's fourth largest truck manufacturer and third largest bus manufacturer. Tata is unquestionably coming to a market near you, so if you think the Megapixel is worthy of consideration, it might yet become available locally.
The Tata Pixel which was shown at Geneva in 2011 had a "Zero Turn" drive system which has been evolved further in the Megapixel. When parking, the four independent electric hub motors drive the wheels in opposite directions, while the front wheels are turned at an acute angle. The unfeasibly small turning circle will enable parking in spaces you wouldn't even consider in a small car - very impressive and very useful!
The at-home induction charging system is another no-brainer. Time-saving and very convenient benefits are heavy motivators. It only takes a minute or so to plug and unplug a plug-in hybrid, but the two minutes a day you save adds up and it's one less of life's chores to tick off the list.

Getting into and out of a small car is also no easy task, and doubly difficult for the taller among us. More accessibility means much easier loading and securing of goods and children and the Megapixel's double-sliding door system and B-pillar-less design is very clever and genuinely useful.
Inside, it's bigger than you'd expect because the battery layout and hub motors maximize interior space.

Accordingly, the Megapixel accommodates four adults with luggage.
The front seats are cleverly cantilevered on the central tunnel, releasing floor space underneath the seats for additional storage.
Like every other automotive design house on the planet, Tat's has focused heavily on the human machine interface (HMI). There's a docking point on the console for a smart phone and the interface is based around a large touchscreen in the center of the instrument panel. The touch screen controls all the functions of the car, from climate to driving modes.
