Nook HD—catch fire again in tablet market

    In 2010 or 2011, when we talk about tablet, Ipad seems the only one occur to our mind. Ipad seems the king of tablet market and on one else could threat it until meet android tablet’s  uneven rise in this year. Samsung’s Galaxy series, Nexus 7 come from google and Amazon’s Kindle fire HD+, all of those ones share the tablet market and led to increasing competition in the area. Now Nook HD also join the fight. This affordable tablet comes with main stream hardware and also light and smart. 

   The Nook HD is a 7.7inch tablet starts at $199 for 8GB model and the 9 inch Nook HD+ starts at $269 for 16GB model. Both tablets would shipping in the October.
  The Nook HD+ meanwhile has a larger 9.5-inch display, which packs a whopping 1,920x1280 pixels. Under its bonnet a 1.5GHz dual-core processor keeps things ticking along nicely, while Barnes and Noble reckons this is the lightest full HD tablet ever created -- it weighs a mere 515g. Both tablets are powered by Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.
Barnes & Noble aimed to improve those specs with its own Nook HD. At first glance, the most obvious enhancement over the older Nook line is the HD's crisper screen. The 7-inch Nook HD features a screen resolution of 1440 x 900 and supports 1080p video; Barnes & Noble says that's 25% more pixels than the Kindle Fire HD. The 9-inch version of the new Nook is 1920 x 1280 (which falls short of the iPad's resolution) and plays 720p video.

  To take advantage of the improved screen resolution, Barnes & Noble is launching Nook Video. Users can buy or stream content in either HD or standard definition, and a representative said the prices will be "comparable" to other a la carte services. Nook Video will also be available as an app for use across several devices.

Iphone5’s Innovation-Shouldn't Be Underestimated

After a week after the release of iphone5, we have known much about this new device, larger screen and A6 chip; it seems that iphone5 didn’t deliver a great creation in this time. I had waited iphone5 from spring but this new apple had not brought much surprise to me. However, Is this familiar-looking iPhone really no surprise? Not so in iphone5, it bring some new to us that we hard recognize from its hardware parameter. Now let’s talk something about it.
iphone5 weight

Size and weight
The first upgrade I want to say is the weight. We draw much of attention on displayer ppi and CPU speed and less of us care about the upgrade in weight. The iphoen5 is 20% lighter than iphone4s. Many smartphones boast large screens and sleek looks, but few weigh as little as 3.95 ounces, iphone5 made it! 4 inch super high resolution displayer and other high rank features with only 112g and 7.6mm depth, that’s a great job. Don’t complaint its less change from 4S, that’s really a big upgrade in this level. When you hold the iphone5, you will meet the surprise.
iphone5

Excellent speed
No one knows that how fast A6 would bring to us unless you try it by yourself. It’s a dual-core one with 1.2GHZ speed and undoubtedly do better than A5, the question is~ How fast it could do.
In particular, the excellent speed I want to talk, it’s about LTE. We needn’t LET network at home, Wi-Fi is Ok. However, when it comes to mobile devices, it absolutely useful. LTE would faster than home broadband wireless net. 
iphone5

Beautiful map
Whenever you hear that an app is beautiful to behold, especially an app as integral to the use of the iPhone as Maps, it can't help but feel superfluous. Still, try to look at Maps on an iPhone 5 and not feel wowed. Right now, it's the best graphics demo the iPhone 5 has in its stable, and Flyovers feel intensely surreal, even if you're a Google Earth addict. Whether the graphical finesse of the new Maps and turn-by-turn navigation can make up for the lack of more-refined Google search terms, Street View, and public transit directions feels like a dicey proposition, but Maps is undeniably fun to play with.
How to rip blu ray movie to iphone5
Ok, in this sense I recognize that there is no big change on the iphone5, we were dissatisfied with the simple upgrade form 3.5inch to 4inch and a bit improvement in cpu. However, at this apple’s level, IPhone is so excellent that harder to make one or two changes than galaxy or HTC’s One series. Our over-high expectations undermined the improvement of iphone.

Kindle Fire HD:Amazon's Counter Attack

  Today we got the long-anticipated Kindle Fire 2, to be exact, the new Kindle Fire named Kindle Fire HD. Yes, the all-new Kindle Fire offering 3 versions with the price from $199 to $499 which make the small size tablet market more interesting, Nexus 7 meet a robust rival, and the high level version would also trouble Ipad.
Kindle Fire HD details:
Kindle Fire HD

Kindle Fire HD:  $199 for 16GB and $249 for 32GB, 7 inch antiglare ISP displayer with 1280*800 resolution, dual-core 1.2Ghz processor with PowerVR 3D graphics core. Dual-driver stereo speakers, dual-band, dual-antenna Wi-Fi for 40% faster downloads and streaming.

Tablet Comparison

  
  Amazon clearly learned lessons and made change to previous generation to offering the 7inch and 8.9inch tablet with price from $199 to $499. That’s a fairly large-span on the tablet market, it offer more choice both in 7 inch and 10 inch tablet line. Nexus7 might never dominate in the 7 inch and $200 rank tablet market, on the other hand, ipad3 and the upcoming ipad mini would also under their influence. Amazon’s new Kindle Fire HD, to some extent, set the price level of tablet market. It would be a counter attack of Amazon

IPhone 5 Event- one week countdown

  After long long time wait and endless rumors about this fantastic gizmo, this Wednesday we have a likely release date of Iphone5. Apple has officially announced a September 12 press event in San Francisco, and we know that new devices would release, the wait almost over. The invitation says, "It's almost here," and shows the number 12, whose shadow forms the number 5. This, of course, refers to the rumored iPhone 5.
Iphone5

After months of rumors about iphone5, Apple confirmed that it would indeed be publishing some new products on next Wednesday, 12nd Sep. All of us hope that the Iphone5 would be the star of the event with revolutionary design.  Here, we have a week waiting time, let make a finally guess about what this iphone would bring to us.


Almost confirmed :
New design
We could confirm that Iphone5 would have new design, Longer and thinner with 4-inch screen as many rumor says. This screen could be manufactured using "in-cell" technology, a method of creating an even thinner all-in-one touch screen without any added layers The thinner 4 inch screen would enable an extra row of icons on the home screen. Black and white color scheme and the new one would return to metal back.

Iphone5 back


New Dock
New 8 pin connector would replace the old 30 pin port, It's time for a smaller connector standard: the space-wasting, dust-collecting 30-pin port on the bottom of iPhones and iPads is an old legacy connector, and many connections are now made via Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, or NFC. A new 8-pin port will take up less space.

Iphone5 dock

iOS 6
That’s no doubt that new Iphone would running with iOS6 which apple demonstrated at its WWDC in june. iOS has lots of new features available for iphone4s, but some primo features of iOS6 will only available on the new iPhone and iPad, turn by turn navigation is one of those new features and next Siri would be on the list.

NFC
NFC(Near-Field Communication), a technology increasingly show up in other cellphone like Galaxy S3. We have reason to believe that iphoen5 wouldn’t miss this attractive feature.

Unconfirmed: 

New camera
Iphone have made good job in camera both on iphone4 and 4s, few user have any complaints about the camera of iphone. We could almost say that iphone has did its best in this area, so we couldn’t confirm that is there any update(multiburst, improved multifocus, or better flash) of the old 8m camera. With all the other new iPhone features, advancements in camera tech could take a year off.

ATIV S: The First Windows8 Smartphone

Samsung announced new windows8 based devices this weekend at the IFA trade show in Berlin, first windows8 smartphone ATIV S, Samsung’s 11.6 inch ATIV smart PC, and the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 was also unveiled.
Atvi smart PC

Galaxy note 2The galaxy note 2 which increases the screen size to 5.5", adds a quad-core CPU, the Android 4.1 (a.k.a. Jelly Bean) operating system, a battery more than 20% larger, and an improved S Pen, all in a package that is only slightly larger than its predecessor and weighs just two additional grams.
 Video converter tool for Galalxy note 2
 If galaxy note 2 is just a update, the announces windows8 phone is the main focus of this show.
And just a quick glance at its specs sheet is enough for us to conclude that we are dealing with a top-tier device. The new Microsoft-sanctioned smartphone offers a 4.8-inch screen with an HD Super AMOLED display, a 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm CPU, 8MP rear camera and 1.9MP front-facing cam. Additionally, it's got a beefy 2,300mAh battery, 1GB RAM, Gorilla Glass 2 and will come in both 16 and 32GB flavors. At 8.7mm, it's also reasonably thin.
ATIV S
1.    1.5 GHZ dual-core Qualcomm CPU
CPU is the heart of every smartphone, and the one that beats inside the Samsung Ativ S is a powerful one indeed. Like all Windows Phone 8 devices expected to be announced in the near future, the Ativ S is powered by a dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor clocked at 1.5GHz and backed up by 1GB of RAM. Older Windows Phone devices could not handle dual-core, which is why seeing such potent piece of silicon inside the first WP8 handset is such a big deal.
2.    4.8 inch HD Super AMOLED display 
In addition to being the first Windows Phone handset to equip a dual-core processor, the Samsung Ativ S is also the first to be equipped with an HD display. In this case, the screen uses Samsung's tried and tested Super AMOLED technology. Spread all those dots across 4.8 inches of display real estate and you get a really high pixel density – exceeding the 300ppi mark, for sharp visuals and smooth curves.
3.    8 Megapixel camera
The Samsung Ativ S is equipped with an 8-megapixel auto-focus camera, and an LED flash has been added for those times when light just isn't enough. We can only guess what photos taken with it will look like, yet a high-end device like this should be capable of delivering photos well above what the average handset can produce.
4.    Windows8 OS
Windows Phone 8 takes care of many limitations that plagued its predecessor and adds plenty of more-than-welcome improvements, both on the outside and on the inside of the platform. For starters, there's the redesigned home screen that can host live tiles of more sizes and of different colors, not to mention that there is more information that they can contain. Also, the mobile platform shares the same core with its desktop counterpart, which should help developers port their PC software to WP8. Let us not forget that Internet Explorer 10 comes included with improved JavaScript and HTML5 handling.
5.    WP8-friendly MicroSD slot
This might not seem very important to us, but for a fraction of users, having a microSD card slot is an essential smartphone feature. Well, the Samsung Ativ S supports micro SD cards, meaning that by getting a 64GB card, the smartphone's total storage can be expanded to the whopping 80 or 96 GB, depending on whether you have the 16 or 32GB model.

Galaxy Note 10.1 could Challenge ipad?

Galaxy Note 10.1, the new tablet made by Samsung had announced this week, is attempt to chip away at the market dominance of ipad. Apple sold 28.8 million iPads in the first six months of this year to hold 64.4 percent of tablet market in the world, and Samsung sold only 4.4million to take less than 10percent market share. The new released Galaxy note 10.1 had be inspired high hopes to challenge Apple’s iPad.

Galaxy Note 10.1 Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1:
Price: $499 for 16GB and $549 for 32GB
Hardware: 
10.1inch screen with 1280 by 800   pixels resolution
 quad-core processor with 1.4 GHz clock   speeds 2GB Ram         
1.3 pounds weight
 5 megapixel rear camera and a 1.9 megapixel front facing camera 
 9 hours battery life  
Operating System: Android 4.0



The new iPad:
iPad sizePrice: $499 for 16GB and $599 for 32GB, $699 for 64 GB
Hardware: 
9.7inch screen with 2048 by 1536 pixel
1.44 pounds weight 
5-megapixel camera on back and a low-resolution camera on front 
10 hours battery life
Operating System: iOS



   Besides being slightly larger than the 9.7-inch iPad, the 10.1-inch Samsung model has other differentiating factors including a stylus-based note taking and sketching function and screen split feature that allows users simultaneously to use two different apps side-by-side. And this would be the most attractive new feature of the one.
  Starting at $499, Samsung's base Note 10.1 model seems a reasonable enough buy when you factor in the addition of the S-Pen, PS Touch, Exynos 4 processor and 16GB of storage. However, until you take a glance at other Android tablets like ASUS' Transformer Infinity Pad TF700, which boasts a crisper 1,920 x 1,200 display, double the storage (32GB) and a quad-core Tegra 3 CPU. The Galaxy Note 10.1 was just so-so. And compare with ipad, Apple's iOS ecosystem is where most consumers will instinctively want to it. Moreover, 2,048 x 1,536 Retina display with the same price $499, that would be easy to make the choice for us.

galaxy note 10.1 VS iPad
The new one may not the best one , if you have plan to get a tablet, ipad3 still at the top of this area and the new Galaxy note 10.1 seems hard to change the situation . what’s more, next generation iPad is on the way now.

Rumors of Iphone5 in 2012

   Since the release of iphone4s in 2011 instead of a revolutionary Iphone5, we have look for the next IPhone for year, and Apple have returned to its lab to create the devices with all efforts. After the new ipad unveiled in March, we are believed that the real iphone5 would a radically different one and would come out in autumn. From March to now, we have much of rumor about iphone5: big screen, dual core, new design…..   Now, the iphone5 have begun to product in china, we could get it in 1-2 months, Let check the rumor around the iphoen5 in this year, that would be funny.
iphone5
August 
taller screen
    One of the most popular iPhone 5 rumors surfaced again when 9to5Mac reported that Apple has been testing a taller display for its next handset. 9to5Mac used iOS development tools to simulate a 640x1,136-pixel-resolution screen, which gave the phone five rows of icons stacked vertically above the dock, instead of the four displayed with iOS 5.
Now a 9-pin connector
   We've already heard that Apple might shrink the iPhone's 30-pin connector to either 19 or 8 pins, but now the possibility of a 9-pin connector is afloat. 9to5Mac says it found a code string for a 9-pin connector in the latest beta version of iOS 6. It's important to keep in mind, though, that until Apple issues the final release of iOS 6 the company will continue to add and remove strings as it tests the operating system.
The screen ships out in August
   Sharp, a Japanese company that is producing the screen for Apple's new iPhone, said it will begin shipping its models out. Though there hasn't been any official confirmation of the handset's launch date, the fact that Sharp's president, Takashi Okuda, told reporters in Tokyo that the screen will ship out now is consistent with a 2012 launch.

July
More iPhone 5 footage has been released
   Last month, a video purporting to show the new iPhone was released on the Interwebs, and a flurry of speculation followed. Today, another video has sprouted up, posted by Japanese site Macotakara. Though it's best to take this one with a grain of salt as well, the featured device is consistent with past rumors that the new iPhone will have a taller display, a smaller dock connector port, a relocated headphone jack, and a new back design.
The NFC idea is getting tossed around again
   The evidence is more substantial than from your run-of-the-mill press "insider": a patent application by Apple itself revealed an NFC chip imbedded into several Apple products, including an iPhone. The patent is titled "System and Method For Simplified Control of Electronic Devices," and illustrates the NFC acting as a remote control for televisions, standalone cameras, and DVRs.
A smaller dock, once again
   Reuters reported that the new iPhone's Dock connector port will indeed be smaller. Its current 30-pin port is expected to shrink down to a 19-pin connector. This will give more room on the bottom of the device for a headphone jack, which for now rests on the top of the iPhone.
Production has started in Shanghai
    According to a Taipei-based report, manufacturing company Pegatron has already started building the new iPhone. Based in Taiwan, the company has begun production in its Shanghai factory. It is also expected to produce the new version of the iPad, reported Digitimes.
Wait for the fourth quarter During the company's quarterly conference call, Verizon CFO Fran Shammo hinted at possible timing for the next iPhone with a vague reference that the carrier expects to launch a major phone in the fourth quarter.
Taller phone with a center camera
    The Taiwan-based blog Apple.pro posts photos of an alleged iPhone frame that is as wide as the iPhone 4S, but taller. That would allow for a 4-inch display with an aspect ratio of 16:9. It's already in production. Production of the next iPhone has already begun, a Japanese-language Apple blog claims. The Macotakara blog cites listings for iPhone 5 cases on a Chinese site as proof of its claim and it says the back of the new iPhone has both glass and aluminum.
quad-core A6 chip
    The not-always-reliable DigiTimes says that Apple's next-generation iPhone will be powered by a quad-core ARM processor based on Samsung's Exynos 4 architecture.
NFC
   The coding from two iPhone 5 prototypes may hint at Near Field Communication capabilities, according to 9to5Mac. NFC chips have already been featured in Android devices for Google Wallet and Android Beam, so this may mean that Apple is joining the mobile payments industry. This will coincide nicely with its launch of Passbook, an iOS 6 feature that lets users store electronic versions of receipts, tickets, and other merchant information.


June
After WWDC 2012, more rumors spread about a bigger iPhone
   Now that software developers are getting their hands on iOS 6, more hints about the new iPhone are emerging. Most notably, of a new Auto Layout feature that lets developers set parameters for certain UI elements. According to one developer that TechCrunch spoke to, Auto Layout is a necessity for Apple before it can launch devices with different resolutions -- implying that perhaps the next generation may have a different resolution than the last.
camera lens

It may have a 16:9 aspect ratio and HD front-facing camera
     People who use the iPhone's front-facing camera for vanity shots and Web chatting, rejoice. Mingchi Kuo, an analyst from KGI, believes the new iPhone will sport a 4.08-inch screen, a 16:9 aspect ratio, and a high-def front-facing camera. In his report, Kuo also says he believes the rear-facing camera will still retain its 8-megapixel spec, but its maximum aperture will jump from 2.4 to 2.2.
iPhone 5 may launch in September
    In addition to the iPad Mini, an analyst from Topeka Capital Markets said that the iPhone 5 will likely launch in September. According to AppleInsider, the analyst, Brian White, cited sources from inside Apple's supply chain in Taipei.


May
That pesky taller iPhone 5 screen pops up on video
   Japanese Apple blog Macotakara publishes a visual comparison of the mystery screen part that's been floating around, next to the existing iPhone to show just how much bigger the screen would be. The the two notable changes are that the screen is taller, and that the FaceTime camera has been moved to the very top, center of the device, like on the iPad.
iPhone 5 launching with 3.95-inch display
   Citing sources, Apple blog 9to5Mac says Apple's testing two iPhones with larger displays at its headquarters, one of which will be released. The blog adds that the screen has a 3.95-inch display, which would be up from the iPhone's current 3.5-inch option.
More rumors pop up about that 4-inch screen
   Looks like that 4-inch screen may be happening after all, now that the more reliable Wall Street Journal's the one reporting it. According to one of the paper's sources, Apple has been tapping for larger screens from its suppliers (which include LG, Sharp, and Japan Display) to compete with Android devices.
Alleged iPhone 5 SIM card tray surfaces
   The next iPhone may not be all that different from current versions if an allegedly leaked part is to be believed. Spare parts site SW-BOX.com posts photos and details of a SIM card tray it says belongs to the next iPhone. The part is nearly identical to the one offered in the iPhone 4 and 4S with very minor cosmetic differences.


April
 It'll be made of Liquid metal
The rumor that Apple is ditching the iPhone's glass has surfaced again. This time from a Korean new site, ETnews, which reported that the iPhone 5 may be made out of Liquidmetal. In late 2010, Apple acquired a license for Liquidmetal, but has only used it for the iPhone's SIM ejector tool.
Different chip, different body
   Several iPhone rumors from varying media sources suggest that the iPhone will be more robust, both inside and out. Business Insider reported that it'll have a 4-inch screen and a unibody case, and 9to5Mac claims it'll be equipped with an A5X chip.

What’s New in Windows 8?

   Even though Windows 8 won’t be released for common user until October, the release of RTM would be a milestone of windows 8 release process. With the release of RTM , features of windows 8 come out . Many people see windows 8 as the revolution of the computer operating system and what’s new in the windows 8?
 1.Boot Speed improvement
windows 8 boot  The load and boot up speed has improved significantly over Windows 7 and win XP. This is partly due to the better resource allocations to applications and the system. When compared to Windows 7 desktop CPU, Windows 8 has an even speedier boot time.
   How did they improve so much over Windows 7? Windows 8 employs a technique of hibernating the system kernel  when you shut down, such that it becomes almost like a partial hibernation each time. When you reboot the system, the ‘memory’ of your previous session gets reinitialized quicker.
2.New innovative Desktop
    The tiles-based interface, or the Metro UI, will be the first thing you see upon logging in to Windows 8. At first glance, the UI seems to go intuitively with touchscreen devices like tablets and smartphones. Indeed, in such devices, you tap on those apps to open them. The grid layout seems to facilitate such interactions. Needless to say, you can customize your grid by adding and arranging applications.
windows 8 desktop
    The coolest thing, however, is that not only does Windows 8 allows you to personalize your desktop with the organization of the apps, it is also able display real-time information through them. Microsoft had demonstrated how the tile for a weather app could reveal the current temperature in a city without having to activate the app. The same goes for emails and such. In one glance over your tiles, you can have access to all that you need to be notified and take action on those which are urgent.
3.Windows TO Go
win to go
    With all of new features, I think the one that offers the most convenience to users. The new function allow users to make a copy of their OS setting (wallpaper, files and app) into USB devices. When user plug it into another computer running with windows 8, you would get a exactly similar interface as your computer with all profile setting.  It would be amazing experience like this. With this new function, a virus-infected and crashed system could be revived by simply plugging in the USB drive with your last saved settings, inclusive of all your files, apps, etc. Users don’t have to worry about losing the ability to work on their projects just because their PC is down; they can always rely on plugging in that drive into another Windows 8-installed PC.
4.New Search Function
    Windows 8 has no search box in the start menu, it even has no trademark start menu. If you want search something on windows 8, all you need to do is to type something and a search box would appear at the right of desktop and give your search result, it would displaying all matching apps and files. The new search function also available in apps, if you want search a emails sent by your contact, type the name and search result would come to you.
windows 8 search

    With those new functions and revolution interface , we have reason to wait for the windows8 release on October. By then, more windows 8 devices would be launched and Microsoft’s Surface will release. Microsoft would stage a comeback in digital product market and window8 just a prelude.

MacBook or ultrabook?That is a question!

Ultrabook VS macbook
  If you are planning to buy a new laptop, you must meet the hard choices: MacBook or ultrabook. I have struggle with this problem too. However, ultrabook only is the quantity winner and MacBook is the substantial laptop king of this year.
 what’s ultrabook? To be honest, i have no idea about what is ultrabook, so let’s get more info about this new conception. Ultrabook is a term intel coined to describe ultraportable laptops that meet a certain set of guidelines. These machines are less than .8 inches thick and use either a solid state drive (or a cache of flash memory) to boot windows fast and wake from sleep almost instantly. You should also expect at least 5 hours of battery life. The goal: to make notebooks as responsive as tablets.
 Today’s ultrabook are very similar to the MacBook in terms of constraction and design, very similar.
Similar: weight, battery life, hardware and performance, touchpad
    The 13-inch MacBook air goes for three pounds and measures 0.7 inches thick, while the new ultrabooks weigh around 2.9-3 pounds and measure 0.6-0.7 inches in depth. It’s not identical, but it’s pretty darn close.
   Both the MacBook air and the new ultrabooks are intended to impress in terms of autonomy and, without any exception, they do. Apple’s 13-incher can go for around six hours between charges, while the new ultrabooks are pretty much all there or thereabouts, with estimated autonomies of between five and a half hours (the asus ux21) and six and a half hours (the lenovo u300s and the toshiba z830).
    With a few tiny exceptions, which we are going to detail a bit later, the MacBook air and the ultrabooks are equally strong and snappy. Apple’s laptop is powered by a 1.7 ghz intel core i5 processor and features 4 gb of ram, as well as a 128 gb ssd, which is the exact specification of the asus ux31 and is ever so slightly different than the u300s’s tech specs.
The large glass touchpad featured by the MacBook air was a first a while back, but is standard on today’s ultrabooks.
Defferences: keyboard, screens, hardware and performance,software
  Even though the new ultrabooks come with pretty decent, accurate and comfortable keyboards of their own, the MacBook air still holds a big advantage in this area. Apple’s keyboard is the only one backlit and that can make a difference in a battle so tight.
  The air sports a beautiful 13.3-inch display with 1440 x 900 pixels resolution, which, even though it’s glossy, is much better than the ones featured by the lenovo u300s or the samsung series 9. on the other hand, the asus ux31 comes with a higher-resolution 1600 x 900 pixels screen and if you want the better overall image quality, this is the way to go.
As we already mentioned, there are a few slight differences in terms of performance between the air and some of today’s ultrabooks. The acer s3, for example, only comes with a 20 gb ssd, while the standard version of the toshiba z830 is powered by a slower 1.4 ghz intel core i3 processor.
  The MacBook air runs the terrific mac OS 10.7 lion, while all the other ultrabooks are windows-based. That’s a very important difference, but it would take us a couple of days to clearly determine which of the two operating systems is better, so for the time being we will call it a tie…
Ultrabook

   In spite of this, which one is better is up to you. As for me, ultrabook seems more atrractive than then expensive MacBook. Ultrabook offers far better value for money than MacBook .the 13-inch air costs a somewhat steep $1,299, you can pick up an ultrabook like the toshiba portege z835 (pictured) for as little as $799. it’s the lightest ultrabook yet at just 2.4 pounds and lasts nearly 7 hours on a charge. It’s core i3 processor and 128gb solid state drive aren’t as fast as the air, but you get good performance for the money. Moreover, ultrabook offer more choices than mac, 13 inchs is the sweet spot for ultrabook, but you also could choose the other size you like. And for mac, with forever size and design……..
  Finally, I found a comparison of mainstream ultrabook, put up here for your reference.

Google Nexus7—killer of Kindle fire but just another android tablet for ipad

google  Nexus
  Google's Nexus 7 is a milestone for android tablet. The first tablet with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, offers the most bang for the buck you can get in the market right now. It's versatile, well-built, fast, and a lot of fun to use. It basically renders every 7in tablet priced at more than 250 bucks pretty much irrelevant. If Amazon has been wondering whether it should have released the Kindle Fire in the UK earlier, that question has been answered now – now that the Nexus 7 is here, the Fire won’t stand a chance. 

Physical features and Internet
  The Nexus 7 feels well-built, even classy for such an affordable tablet—and trust me, I've handled plenty of cheap tablets. Kudos goes to the hardware manufacturer, Asus, a company that typically builds good stuff. A Gorilla Glass screen dominates the front of the tablet, and around back, there's a slightly grippy, stippled black rubber panel. At 198.5 x 120 x 10.45mm (HxWxD) and 340g, it's comfortable to hold in one hand for long periods.
Turn the tablet on using the prominent Power button at the top right corner, and you'll see a perfectly fine 1280 x 800, 7in IPS LCD screen with a huge black bezel around it. The screen is higher-res than the Kindle Fire, which clocks in at 1280 x 600. This is one monster of a bezel, and it makes you wonder if the screen could have been larger, or the tablet smaller. The answer is probably, but not for £159. The display is bright enough to see indoors and out, although it's more reflective and less saturated than the high-end AMOLED screens used by the far more expensive tablets.

Performance and apps
  The quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 chipset inside is one of the fastest mobile processors around. This unit runs at 1.3GHz in single core mode, and 1.2GHz when two to four cores are active. While our Antutu system benchmark won't run on the new version of Android, we ran a bunch of other benchmarks, including Geekbench and Quadrant for system scores, Browsermark and Sunspider for the Web, and Nenamark for graphics.
System-wise, the Nexus 7 performed on par with other recent Tegra 3 tablets. Geekbench is a cross-platform benchmark, and the Tegra 3 tablets score considerably higher on it than the dual-core Apple iPad does—in this case, 1,472 to the iPad's 761. Graphics performance was rock-solid with a 55.9fps rating in Nenamark, higher than the Asus Transformer Pad TF300.
Games just rock here. I downloaded a few of Nvidia's Tegra Zone titles, and both Zen Pinball and Riptide GP had the smooth ease of control, which marks a really good gaming experience. There was no jerkiness, no lag, and no compromises.
This is the first Google device to install Chrome as the default browser, and that's great; it's about 30 per cent faster than the older stock Android browser, and it has a better tab interface.
The performance news gets even better with Android 4.1 thanks to Butter. That's Google's code-name for a project that makes everything in the Android UI smoother, and it works. Screen transitions are indeed smoother, and there's no lag with the touch keyboard. The whole experience feels more polished and professional than previous Android iterations.
Butter doesn't solve everything, though. Android has problems with processing stylus touch inputs that can make it difficult to use drawing programs. I tried Sketchbook Pro with a stylus and still saw a lag. Android 4.1 apparently fixes this, but consumers won't see the advantage yet because the apps involved need to be retooled for the new OS.
Thus we get to the stickiest issue with Android tablets: The perpetual lack of great apps designed to use high-end hardware. This is less of a problem with Tegra-powered 7in tablets than with larger devices, or those with different chipsets, but it's still an issue. Apps designed for 4in phone screens don't look so bad on 7in tablets (although they don't look great), and Nvidia has been busily helping developers churn out a few dozen super-high-end games for its chips.

  However, the comparison between Nexus and ipad seems make no sense. After Google announced its new Nexus 7 tablet last Wednesday during their Google I/O event, Brian White of Topeka Capital Markets stated that Apple need not worry. For him, the search engine giant’s device is “just another Android-based tablet.”
  Apple probably doesn’t need to worry about Google’s latest tablet eating into its profit share. In fact, Android chief Andy Rubin admitted the company’s own profit margins for the device are extremely low: “When it gets sold through the (Google) Play store, there’s no margin. It just basically gets (sold) through.” The latest projections from IDC suggest that Apple will take back market share from Android this year, as the Cupertino-based company is expected to achieve 62 percent of the tablet market.

Surface VS ipad (Is Surface ipad killer?)


  Since the surface released by Microsoft earlier last week in California, Surface become the biggest rival of Apple’s ipad. Microsoft's competition in the tablet space is fierce, and seems no devices are as fearsome as iPad. However, the Surface seems want to do something in this dark market.  The Surface has two versions: one with a ARM processor and running Windows RT, the other with an intel Processor and running windows8. Although the price and exact release date of the “ipad killer” have yet to be announced, we have reason to believe that the surface would have a giant even revolutionary effect on the tablet market. Now, Let's come back to the main topic, is Surface really better than ipad and to be a ipad killer?  Here, Let’s check the unique features of surface.





1.keyborad 
surface keyboard  A frustration for many users of the iPad and other touchscreen devices is the keyboard. While it's possible to get somewhat proficient at tapping spots on a flat screen, most acknowledge it's impossible to get e-mail and other documents written as quickly as with physical keys. Sure, there are third-party keyboards you can buy to add onto the iPad, but they can be clunky. The Surface keyboard will be part of its Touch Cover, which is connected with magnets and flips open. There will be a version with pressure-sensitive flat keys and another with more traditional raised keys called a Type Cover. They're both sleeker and thinner than the third-party offerings for the iPad. The Touch Cover is 3 millimeters thick, and the Type Cover is 5 millimeters. And for the style-sensitive among us, they'll come in a variety of colors, including black, pink, red and blue.

2.USB ports
  Both versions of the Surface come with USB ports (2.0 on the RT and a faster 3.0 on the Windows Pro). The lack of ports has been one of the few persistent complaints about the iPad. These ports open up the possibility of extra storage, printing and other external capabilities that should be easier and quicker than the workarounds iPad users need involving cloud storage, Wi-Fi connections and the like.

3.Digital Ink And Stylus
  Microsoft designed the Windows 8 Pro version of the Surface tablet to accept stylus input. The company's demonstration of how the digital ink works gave the impression that writing, highlighting and underlining on the tablet is easy. Writes Slash Gear, "The distance between the screen (digitizer) and the stylus is only .7mm thick, and allows for it to be highly accurate, making you feel like the ballpoint of a pen is actually writing on the 'surface.'"

4.Options For Casual And Power Users
Surface
  Before picking up a Surface tablet, potential buyers should consider which version best fits their needs: The Windows RT version, a more traditional tablet that's slim and light and performs basic tasks -- with a presumably iPad-like price tag; or the Windows 8 Pro configuration, a slightly beefier and slightly pricier tablet that's more closely related to a laptop and capable of running heavy-duty software. Surface tablets running Windows RT are built around an ARM processor. According to CNN, chipsets made by ARM are found in 95 percent of other mobile devices, including the iPad. Windows 8 Pro models are built around an Intel chip and will run applications that one would expect to find on traditional laptops: Photoshop, Word, and Excel.

5.Size
Surface
  Apple has made such a compact, stylish tablet that many of its competitors look chunky by comparison. That's not true of the Surface, at least as it was demoed Monday. First, its display screen is 10.6 inches, almost a full inch bigger than the iPad's. And the company says it's optimized to have essentially the same dimensions as a movie screen: So, farewell black bars when watching video. The Surface for Windows RT is a fraction of a tiny thinner than the iPad (9.3vs.9.4), while the heftier Surface for Windows 8 Pro will be 13.5 millimeters. The RT weighs virtually the same as the iPad, while the Pro will be around 2 pounds.

New Features of iOS6 You might missed

ios6
  
  Apple presented the long awaited iOS6 update as the WWDC, the iOS6 would be available for iPhone, ipad and touch in the Fall. News about iOS6 had dominated headlines all the the week. Cook says the new iOS contains more than 200 new features. we need a closer look at this new operation system coming this fall. Here, I would like list some new features long awaited and also something you may missed.

1.Siri Upgrade(New languages, launch apps)
ios6 siri
 
  With iOS 6, Siri gets a couple of distinct improvements you might find useful. First, because of the aforementioned changes to the Maps app, when you ask Siri to find a restaurant or gas station it will be able to literally help you find it with turn-by-turn navigation. Another aspect of Siri in iOS 6 that you’ll appreciate is the ability to open apps. What’s more, iOS6 would bring siri to the new ipad , Imagine, though, the new ipad with siri, tha’s so cool~


2.Apple Maps(turn-by-turn navigation)

apple map
 
  Apple is ditching Google Maps, and switching to its own home-grown mapping app. The best part about the change is that the new Maps app will include turn-by-turn navigation, Yelp integration, and real-time traffic updates. The Garmin Street Pilot app sets the bar pretty high, so it remains to be seen if the iOS 6 Maps app can live up expectations. But, there is no way to assign the Garmin Street Pilot app as the default, so it will be a vast improvement to at least have the default Maps app provide more useful instructions to get your from Point A to Point B. We hope apple map would get a big improvement.


3.A new Share screen

ios6
 
  In iOS 5, when you tap to share a photo, you get a long list of sharing actions to choose from—whether it’s posting to Twitter, sending an email or iMessage, or some other option. iOS 6 adds Facebook sharing as an option, along with sharing to various Chinese social networks. (That’s a nod to how important the Chinese market has become to Apple.) But Apple decided against cramming more buttons into that panel.
Instead, iOS 6 presents you with a new, icon-based sharing screen. It uses icons to represent the apps and services that you can share your content with and looks quite a bit like the iPhone’s home screen.

 
4.Call rejection

ios6
 
  Sometimes, you can’t take a call when your iPhone starts ringing. You can already quickly send a call to voicemail by tapping the Ignore button, but iOS 6 adds more powerful options for when you’re too busy to answer. When your phone rings, you’ll see a button on the screen akin to the new camera shortcut on the lock screen in iOS 5.1—a switch that you slide up to trigger.
  When you do so, you’ll see options to send the caller a message, or to remind yourself to call the person back later. If you choose to send a message, iOS offers several default options; you can also save custom responses. Your iPhone will then attempt to iMessage or SMS the caller with your note, while also sending them straight to your voicemail.

 
5.Spotlight tweak
  If you have lots of apps, sometimes it’s hard to figure out precisely which homescreen they’re located on. However, in iOS 6, Spotlight makes that at least a smidgen easier, by listing the name of the folder a particular app is nestled inside when it appears in the search results.

 
6.Safari

ios6 safari
 
  Apple has copied some of its competitors with some much-needed upgrades features for Safari. First and foremost is the ability to sync open tabs from Safari on a desktop to Safari on an iOS device via iCloud. This also requires OS X Mountain Lion, but still, it took Apple long enough. Opera, Firefox, and others have offered this for ages.

Finally, let’s check about the compatibility of iOS 6 for apple devices:

Which Feature You Want on The Iphone5?

  All overall world are waiting for the release date of iphone5, the next generation of I phone. Although widely expected, there is no iphone5 in the first half of 2012. However, according to the deluge of rumors about iphone5, we could believe that the new iPhone would release in October this year.
  From the first generation of iPhone to the iPhone 4s, every time a new one is launched, most of the focus is on particular feature, antenna design of iphone4 and Siri of 4s. We also found tons of guess about the new features of iphone5 on the net, and today let check those guesswork and there must some features you want.

1.Flexible OLED Displayer.
iphone5 flexible displayer

  There have been rumors floating around that iPhone 5 would have Flexible displayer. And the flexible displayer would produce by Samsung. SKwon Oh-hyun, Vice Chairman of Samsung, recently stated that mass production of the flexible displays will start in the second half of 2012 and there is significant demand from clients. However, most of the experts think that it might be a bit too early to expect such changes in the next iPhone. The next iPhone – which will be the 6th generation of iPhones – is being referred to as iPhone 5. Realistically speaking, the major upgrades can be expected for the processor, display, memory, camera and the software of this phone. If you talk about the long-term changes, then you can expect Apple to move away from the traditional design which has become so popular. But for the immediate future, the design is likely to remain the same.
Hope index: 100%
Chance of implement: Tiny


2.Removable battery
iphone5 removable battery

  This well-known rendering of a future iPhone dreams of a model with a removable battery. However, it appears to run counter to Apple's current design principles. All of us want a battery removable iPhone, Alas, this dream seems never come true.
Hope index: 100%
Chance of implement: never


3.Biometric security
iphone5 security

  It's not a must-have upgrade, but it really cool to swipe your finger rather than enter a password to unlock your phone. It could also be combined with NFC (near field communication technology -- see next slide) for making mobile payments. For Apple, it’s not a tough job and who could look for it as a light spot of iphone5.
Hope index: 50%
Chance of implement: possible

4.NFC-enabled (near field communication technology)
iphone5 NFC

  There's been some speculation that Apple might include Near Field Communication (NFC) technology in the iPhone 5, turning it into a kind of credit/debit card. Leading up to the release of what turned out to be the iPhone 4S, rumor had it that Apple may have been working on integrating near field communication technology (NFC) into the next iPhone. This is sort of a bar code replacement technology that would allow your iPhone -- among other things -- to act as a payment device (e-wallet) or even a car key.
Hope index: 70%
Chance of implement: possible


5.A6 processor
iphone5 A6

  With Apple's acquisition of PA Semiconductor, it's been designing and churning out its own CPUs, including the 1GHz A5 processor in the iPhone 4S and A5+ processor in the new iPad. Many people thought we'd get the A6 processor with the iphone5 -- and that it would be a quad-core chip. The A6 chip is probably a 28nm process (compared with the 45nm of A5), with lower energy consumption and higher speeds. The high range processor could improve the performance of programs like Siri, as well as a host of other features, including still and video image capture.
Hope index: 80%
Chance of implement: probably

6.High performance of Battery

  Removable battery seems never come true, however we could get more hope to the better performance of the battery .We have no expect that when Every time Apple puts out a new iPhone, the battery life gets slightly better, so we expect no less from the iphon5. At least on paper, the iPhone 4S offers very similar battery life to the iPhone 4, so this is one area where there's significant room for improvement.
Hope index: 100%
Chances of implementation: Must


7.Larger screen
iphone 5 screen

  Larger screen is certain, we could confirm that the iphone5 with a 4inch+ screen. However, large screen means more battery consumption. We're hoping Apple can come up with the right balance. Going to 4 inches makes a significant difference for user experience and is probably the optimal size for a smartphone screen.
Hope index: 100%
Chances of implementation: Must
