Microsoft Surface Window RT / 8


Microsoft Surface with Windows 8 Pro
Surface with Windows 8 Pro is Microsoft's bold attempt to take on not just the iPad and Android, but the entire laptop market, and bring desktop-strength tablets — a niche-product for decades — to the masses. In doing so, the company has built on its years of experience with pen and touch interfaces, and created a tablet that offers multiple input methods — including fingertip, stylus, and keyboards — right out of the box. Running on Windows 8 Pro, this tablet will be able to run all Windows desktop applications. Microsoft says it will be priced to compete with Ultrabooks, and will also be able to take them on when it comes to performance and versatility.

Just like the 15-inch version Apple has upgrade the popular 13-inch model to support its Retina display technology giving it 227 pixels per inch for a 13-inch display. At a mere 0.75 inches and 3.57 pounds, the remarkably portable 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display is 20 percent thinner and almost a pound lighter than the current 13-inch MacBook Pro. The base model will have a 2.5GHz processor, 8GB of memory and 128GB of storage with a starting price of $1,699.

    Samsung to unveil 4-inch 'mini' Galaxy S III on October 11th

    JK Shin galaxy s iii
    10 Oct 2012  |  JK Shin, head of Samsung Mobile Communications, confirmed today that his company will be releasing a four-inch version of the Galaxy S III on October 11th in Germany. Shin announced the news during a meeting with Korean press on Wednesday.
    Shin didn't reveal many details about the device, though he said it was spurred by increasing demand for 4-inch devices in Europe. He also noted that it won't be an entry-level handset, telling reporters it will have "full form factor." This would make it an unusual addition to the Android landscape, where high-end devices tend to be 4.5 inches or larger.
    "We'll be launching a 4-inch Galaxy S III on the 11th in Germany," Shin said. "There's a lot of demand for a 4-inch screen device in Europe. Some call it an entry-level device, but we call it 'mini.'"
    Shin's confirmation comes just ahead of Apple's rumored iPad mini announcement.
    Update: Samsung has confirmed to The Verge that it will hold an event on October 11th. "Galaxy S III mini will come with 4-inch display and we are going to unveil the product tomorrow (Oct 11th)."

    YC-Alum Lockitron Is Back With A New Kit That Allows Smartphones To Control Dumb Deadbolts

    Locks are a necessary evil. They keep the bad guys out while allowing good guys in. The Lockitron aims to make the point of entry as safe as possible, but also as convenient as possible. Plus, it’s packed full of features including remote management, proximity entry through Bluetooth, and, even more fun, a vibration sensor that will notify the owner when someone is knocking on the door.
    The original Lockitron Deadbolt was a hit. A graduate from Y Combinator’s 2009 summer class, the company sold $100k worth of units of the novel $299 kit since launching it in 2011. Put simply, it was a deadbolt that could be controlled by a smartphone. But it still had its downfalls. For one, it was a deadbolt replacement, requiring the hassle of installation including re-keying. And at $299 and up, it was rather expensive. But the company has a fantastic new solution. But they need your help (i.e. pre-orders).
    Now just called Lockitron, the product piggybacks on top of existing deadbolts, awarding them all the features and more of the original model. This route allows the kit to retrofit nearly any deadbolt on the market including ones that are already installed on doors.
    The company’s founders, Cameron Robertson and Paul Gerhardt, tell me installation is simple. Simply loosen the two bolts on existing deadbolt, slip on the Lockitron’s backplate and place the front cover over top of the deadbolt, tightening the Lockitron’s large knob to pair it to the deadbolt. That’s it. There’s no need to tear apart the door or re-key a lock. Once installed, the real magic begins.

    Apple supplier closes China plant after riot.

    A Foxconn factory in Chengdu, China.

    HONG KONG (MarketWatch)—Apple Inc. supplier Foxconn Technology Group ordered one of its Chinese factories closed Monday after a dormitory brawl reportedly escalated into a violent riot that took several hours to bring under control.

    Not much is known about the reasons behind the fight, which is being investigated by authorities.

    The brawl broke out around 11 p.m. at the facility in Taiyuan in northern China’s Shanxi province, according to China’s state-run Xinhua news agency.

    The Associated Press reported that the dormitory was privately run and located near the Foxconn factory.

    Apple is the Cupertino, Calif., technology major, maker of the iPhone and iPad.

    Between several hundred and several thousand employees are believed to be involved in the riot, according to The Wall Street Journal, which cited workers at the plant it contacted over the Internet. Other reports put the figure at 2,000, with about 40 workers hospitalized.

    About 5,000 police officers were called in to restore order, eventually dispersing the crowds around 9 a.m., the report said.

    Queues around the world to buy the iPhone 5

    Published on Sep 21, 2012 by itnnews : People queued all around world to be the first to get their hands on Apple's newest smartphone, the iPhone 5. Report by Genelle Aldred.

    iPhone 5 full review:

    Finally, the iPhone we've always wanted.

    The good: The iPhone 5 adds everything we wanted in the iPhone 4S: 4G LTE, a longer, larger screen, and a faster A6 processor. Plus, its top-to-bottom redesign is sharp, slim, and feather-light.
    The bad: Sprint and Verizon models can't use voice and data simultaneously. The smaller connector renders current accessories unusable without an adapter. There's no NFC, and the screen size pales in comparison to jumbo Android models.
    The bottom line: The iPhone 5 completely rebuilds the iPhone on a framework of new features and design, addressing its major previous shortcomings. It's absolutely the best iPhone to date, and it easily secures its place in the top tier of the smartphone universe.
    The iPhone 5 is the iPhone we've wanted since 2010, adding long-overdue upgrades like a larger screen and faster 4G LTE in a razor-sharp new design. This is the iPhone, rebooted.
    The new design is flat-out lovely, both to look at and to hold, and it's hard to find a single part that hasn't been tweaked from the iPhone 4S. The iPhone 5 is at once completely rebuilt and completely familiar.

    Bluetooth headset: Plantronics Voyager Legend

    Slide 2
    Slide 3
    Slide 4
    Slide 5
    Slide 6
    Slide 7
    Slide 8

    The good: Lighter and less bulky than other boom-style headsets, the Plantronics Voyager Legend has superb audio quality and a well-crafted, comfortable design.
    The bad: The Plantronics Voyager Legend's big boom mic arm isn't compact. Its ear tips don't form a tight audio seal.
    The bottom line: The $99.99 Plantronics Voyager Legend big boom microphone isn't for the fashion conscious but its superb call audio quality and comfortable fit make it an excellent buy.

    Plantronics has been in the communications business since the dawn of the Jet Age and heady days of the Apollo space program. This experience shows in the company’s latest premium Bluetooth headset, the $99.99 Voyager Legend. It’s sure not a modest product name but designed as a follow-up to the Plantronics Voyager Pro Plus, and the Legend does what many might have though was impossible, improve on an already stellar design. In fact, the Voyager Legend offers even better call quality, a smaller size, a more comfortable fit, and a longer battery life. It’s still not inconspicuous compared with more minute headsets but if you do a lot of talking all over town and clear sound is your priority, you’ll want to splurge on this excellent mobile accessory.
