Apple Altar by Georg Dinkel

Georg Dinkel Apple Altar review photo
It’s not a secret that Apple, Inc. and it’s products have many devoted fans around the world. Many people choose to use MacBooks, iPhones, iPods, iPads, etc. just because they carry the famous Apple logo, without paying any attention to what Apple’s competitors have to offer. Some people go even further and start wearing t-shirts, sweaters, and other gear with the Apple logo. Moreover, there are cases when this loyalty becomes a real obsession or even a mania to some people. To this people, Apple is not just a favourite brandname, it’s a cult, a religion.

A designer named Georg Dinkel has taken the part about religion literally. Mr. Dinkel has come up with an audio doc-station for iPod Nano which has two mono speakers, and looks like a small temple with extremely rich decorations. Moreover, the luxurious tower clock of this temple has an iPad as one of its details. All the smaller details of the fine plasterwork are made of polymeric clay.

Georg Dinkel Apple Altar review photo
 
We still have no information to share regarding whether this Apple temple is going to be manufactured in a somewhat considerable number of copies, but if it would - a number of Apple fanatics would finally have a real altar to worship their divinity. Another thing to feed our imaginations upon would be the name of this new... (device? accessory?) item. Would they name it a ‘MacAltar’? Or would they prefer an ‘iChurch’? Maybe they would rather think of something original?

Anyway, all the Apple zealots around the world have a new matter to pray their divinities about. If let our imagination run wild, our eyes picture people leaving their secular lives to serve the mighty Apple, a new Apple, Inc. CEO elected on a conclave from and by a number of most devoted and high-ranked ‘Applers’. Then, this new CEO would probably call his followers for a crusade against the heretic blasphemers who use Android-operated devices... Hopefully, it’s just imagination. Still, Georg Dinkel’s temple is quite real.

Smart Watch for Android and iOS


MetaWatch STRATA Review Photo
Where do you usually carry your cellphone? Most commonly people carry their cellphones in a pocket or in a bag. This custom is bound with certain inconveniences. For example, many of us have had a situation when you want to know what time it is, you get your phone out of your pocket, look at it, put in back into your pocket, and then - instantly forget what time it is at the moment, and have to get the phone out of the pocket once again to see what time it is. Or, for example, when somebody is calling you, and you can hear your phone ringing in your bag, but it takes you too much time to find it, and the person calling you drops the phone, - you can’t answer your phone in time, and you have to call back which is not always possible. Surely, each of us has a story like this to share, so it is completely needless to list all kinds of such situations within this article.

Probably, each and every one of us has been thinking about how great it would be to have a device that could serve as a solution to all these problems and inconveniences. As an answer to this demand, MetaWatch has come up with a device called STRATA.

There also is the Lost Phone Alarm function which vibrates if the phone to which the MetaWatch STRATA is attached, gets far from the device, - people who have the habit of leaving their phones in all sorts of places will surely find this function quite useful.

iPhone Laser Gun

iPhone Laser Gun photo, review
Everybody knows how advanced and sophisticated Apple’s iPhone is. Still, not advanced and sophisticated enough, some designers find. These designers tend to think hard about ways to make our iPhone experience even more convenient and pleasant, and persuade manufacturers around the world to present more and more different iPhone accessories. Quite often, the innovations these designers introduce happen to be really impressive.

Of course, far not all of these innovations are really useful for everyday operation. But hey, they are fun! A great example of such fun innovations is the newest thing Hasbro - the world largest toy manufacturer - has come up with on the 1st of August this year. It’s a called LaserTag and represents a toy pistol to insert an iPhone or and iPod into. It is compatible with iPhone 3GS, 4, and 4S, as well as with iPod Nano.

Air Android Toy

Android Air Toy Photo Review
It is hard not to notice that many companies have certain fandoms. A person may happen to become a fan of a brandname. In the IT business, the best example of such tendency is Apple, Inc. Not that the quality of Apple products did not correspond to their prices, but we must admit that there are many people around the world who prefer to buy Apple products (iPods, iPhones, iPads, etc.) only because of the famous Apple logo these devices carry, without actually paying any attention to the technical specifications of both Apple devices and similar devices of their competitors.

However, it is not only Apple, Inc. to enjoy such phenomenal popularity. For example, over the last few years Android OS has gained popularity not only among manufacturers of smartphones and tablet personal computers, but also among common people using these devices. The Android OS has an oval-shaped green creature with two antennas on its head for a logo, but the picture of this creature can not only be seen on the screens of AndroidOS-operated mobile devices, but also on t-shirts, sweaters, and other kinds of merchandise.

Recently, these Android OS merchandise-producing guys have decided to go even further. This time, they have introduced an air toy which looks like that green creature from the Android logo. The toy is about 65cm or 25 inches tall. This new Android toy is also a tumbler, i.e. it keeps to vertical position all by itself. Probably, one of the biggest attraction of this toy is that it is radio-controlled. The remote control of the toy can operate in three frequencies - so, in one are people may play with up to three Androids. This means, that you can make battles between the toys! All these factors make the new Android Air Toy a perfect present for an Android fan.

The price of the new Android Air Toy is around $80.

Apple Gradually Reduces Cooperation with Google

Google and Apple
The cooperation between Apple and Google has a long (in terms of the IT industry) history. Ever since the introduction of the very first iOS in 2007, Google has been the default search engine in iPhones and iPads. Besides, every iPad and/or iPhone user is used to the YouTube icon in the upper right corner of the desktop, because the YouTube application was included into the basic package of applications of the iOS used by Apple’s mobile devices.

However, nothing lasts forever, all things come to an end, and currently we can observe that this ‘friendship’ experiences some cracks. Thus, the basic applications package of the new iOS 6 will not include the YouTube application. Of course, this does not mean that iPhone, iPad and iPod Nano users will not be able to watch videos on YouTube. The special YouTube application will still be available from Apple’s AppStore. A user will also be able to view the YouTube website through the Safari web browser. Still, such sudden change seems rather curious.

Lenovo ThinkPad 2 photo
Presently, we observe that the market of mobile devices in general and tablet computers in particular is growing extremely rich. There are Apple products, such as iPhones and iPads, and a great variety of AndroidOS-based devices from HTC, Samsung, and a huge number of other manufacturers. In order to keep up with the times, many manufacturers of computers, laptops, and cellphones have nothing to do but to present tablet personal computers of their own. They come across a question - which operation system to use in their tablet computers. iPads from Apple Inc. employ the Apple’s patented iOS, the vast majority of Apple’s competitors on this particular market employ Android OS for their tablet PCs. However, some of the manufacturers, for example, Lenovo, opt to use the Window 8 operation system from Microsoft for their tablet computers.

Lenovo ThinkPad 2 photo
Recently, Lenovo has announced the new tablet computer called ThinkPad 2. Let’s take a closer look at the technical specifications of Lenovo’s new tablet PC. This new device is quite thin: the thickness is only 9.8mm. The diagonal of the display is 10 inches and employs the IPS (in-pane switching) technology, and the supported screen resolution is as much as up to 1366 per 768 pixels. Quite naturally, there are two cameras: front and rear. The front camera is 2MP, and the rear camera is 8MP. Of course, there are ports: USB, Ethernet, and microHDMI. The battery of the new Lenovo ThinkPad 2 tablet computer runs for up to 10 hours without recharging. The new device supports both 3G and 4G.

The new Lenovo ThinkPad 2 tablet computer also has some truly distinguishing features. The first one is the in-built stylus, and the second one is the fingerprint scanner.

The announced release date of the new Lenovo ThinkPad 2 tablet computer is in October this year. However, Lenovo still keeps silence about the price of its new device, but this is a common practice and companies do have understandable reasons to hide such information.

Meanwhile, you have some time to consider the technical specifications of the new Lenovo ThinkPad 2 tablet computer, and make up your mind upon whether you want a device of such kind or not.

New Google Translate App Allows to Translate Signs through Camera

Google Translate
In our everyday lives, most of us happen to come across various situations when we need to translate something from a foreign language. It is quite needless to point out all the huge variety of such situations within this humble article. It is also quite pointless to explain why a common dictionary may be ineffective when there’s a need to translate a word combination or a phrase. For the purposes of translation people most commonly tend to use various translators.

Today, Google Translate seems to be the most popular online translating service. It can be used both directly online and as a separate application. In spite of all the sophisticated advantages embedded and the popularity among users achieved, Google never stops developing its translating tool and making it even more advanced and convenient. Due to this tendency, Google has recently introduced a new update to the Google Translate smartphone application.

Probably, the biggest part of this latest update to Google Translate for mobile devices is that it allows you to translate written or printed text. Here’s how it works: you simply launch the Google Translate application on your smartphone and direct your smartphone’s camera at the written or printed text you want to have translated, the text appears on the display of your smartphone, and the application processes it. The update package includes a convenient touch-guided interface which is used for ‘drawing’ over the text image and highlighting the part of text which you want translated.

However, the update package includes more innovations most useful, such as improvement to voice translation (including new dialect preferences), improved recognition of Japanese handwritten characters, and more.

As you can see, the combination of the above-mentioned advantages makes Google Translate for smartphones even more convenient and extremely useful. The only drawback of this new update seems to be its relatively big weight. So, if you plan to use it abroad, it is recommended that in order not to spend all the money from your phone account, you either download it beforehand, or make sure that your phone is on WiFi-only connection.

Google Robocars traveled 300 thousand miles with no accidents

Google Robocar Review Photo
Undoubtedly, cars play a significant role in our lives. We drive cars to get to the place we want fast enough. The history of car industry counts over a century of quite even development. Yet, however, driving cars has turned out to be not so easy. There are many reasons why drivers may sometimes be careless and get into accidents. This, in turn, results in phobias some people have against driving. Such people have to seek ways to avoid driving: they use public transportation, they ask their family or friends to drive them to the places they want to, they sometimes even have to spend extra money to hire drivers. Car accidents sometimes even provoke some people to having phobias against the very presence in a car. How can these problems be resolved? Numerous sci-fi writers forecast cars driven by robots or computers instead of people. Of course, such concept could reduce the number of car accidents and make driving and travelling by cars safer, because robots can’t gets drunk or otherwise emotionally unstable. But how close is this idea to our objective reality?

Google Robocar Review photo
Some time ago Google announced that it begins to test its robocars - robotized vehicles controlled by onboard computers. It is quite obvious that such innovation represents a real breakthrough in car industry, making it much more convenient to use cars and allow people to avoid the bureaucracy and other complications bound with getting a driver’s license.

Recently, Google has announced the results of the testings of robocars. All the robocars tested have in common traveled 300 000 miles (or 482 800 km) without running into ANY accidents. It is necessary to note that the cars were tested under most various conditions (different traffic, weather conditions, time of day, etc.) This achievement is a real success, and evokes expectations most enthusiastic.

Google Robocar Review photo
However, there is still much left to be done before robocars can be introduced to mass customer. It is still necessary to test how good robocars are under a number of specific circumstances: to improve the road recognition when it snows, to recognize the temporary road signs, as well as work through a number of more individual, yet common road situations.

Elecom TK-FNS040BK NFC Photo, review
Many people who use smartphones and have a great deal of working with text on their smartphones come across one and the same problem: the keyboard of a smartphone is too small. Not that it was impossible to input text through a smartphone keyboard, but it is rather unconvenient, which results in the job done not as quickly (and peacefully) as it could have been done, if the keyboard were a little more convenient to use.

This forced a number of companies to introduce mobile keyboards to be used with smartphones in order to make working with text on smartphones more convenient for the user. These mobile keyboards come in extreme variety of design, functionality, price, etc. For example, Japanese company Elecom has recently announced its new TK-FNS040BK NFC mobile keyboard for Android phones.

This new mobile keyboard from Elecom seems the ultimate accessory of the kind for Android phones equipped with an NFC module. The connection is realized via the NFC IP-1 protocol.

The biggest advantage of the new Elecom TK-FNS040BK NFC mobile keyboard seems the location of buttons. Most other mobile keyboards have buttons placed both on the left and on the right from the connected smartphone. Such location of buttons is different from that on an ordinary keyboard of an ordinary computer. For this reason, the user needs to take some time to get used to such keyboard. On the new Elecom TK-FNS040BK NFC mobile keyboard, all the buttons are placed to the right from the connected smartphone, which helps it to better resemble an ordinary keyboard of an ordinary computer. This will help the user to faster get used to the new TK-FNS040BK NFC mobile keyboard, and to perform the operations he wants somewhat faster than with most other common mobile keyboards.

However, the new TK-FNS040BK NFC mobile keyboard from Elecom does have a drawback, considerable or not - judge by yourself. The battery of this mobile keyboard is extremely thin. For this reason, it can’t be replaced or recharged. It is quite long-lasting though: it can last for approximately 8-18 hours if used for 8 hours a day.

The price of the new TK-FNS040BK NFC mobile keyboard from Elecom is $240.
