Google wants to use Chrome to suck you into virtual reality

Google wants to use Chrome to suck you into virtual reality

 Google says it's now time to marry two computing realms: the web and virtual reality.


Its latest version of the Chrome browser includes a technology called WebVR, which lets programmers create websites that present the computer-generated 3D worlds of virtual reality. If you're into VR, you might appreciate the promise WebVR holds for expanding what you can do with a device like a Google Daydream View or a Facebook Oculus Rift VR headset.

That's because, in principle at least, WebVR makes it easier for developers to create a single VR experience that'll work across many VR headsets instead of having to create a separate version for each device. It's an extension of how a single website can span your laptop, Android phone or iPad tablet.

How to take reliable notes with iPhone and iPad

On the day of my show I'm a business analyst for a large hospital. A significant amount of my week is taken up with meetings, and obviously I have to take notes for them. I also take notes for my freelance articles and research notes for my writing fiction. Also, I have little notes from day to day I'll make a note of the RGB color values ​​you may need, or size screws I need to get to Home Depot.

In the center of this workflow is my iPad and iPhone. Today, I'll tell you what useOneNote, Evernote, and the built-in Notes application to take my notes. As with most of my documentation requirements, I want a cross-platform solution, or at least something that you can access anywhere.

My ritual of taking notes


My approach to taking notes is very simple. I want to be able to capture the information accurately and can easily flag a note as an action item. At this point, I'm not too worried about typos and correct grammar. I can go clean them later.

I want to be able to store clippings and notes for when I'm working on my fiction. One of the stories I'm working on is set in Boston in the 1970s, therefore, I have a digital scrapbook of Chinatown, who were political leaders and notes documentaries about the era.

Finally, there are a lot of little notes that I take during the day. These notes can be adjusted into a guitar effects pedal that I want to try, I want to order parts, and some network passwords (I know, that must be OnePassword).

Using OneNote for my work notes


By far the best solution I've found to take notes in meetings is OneNote. Evernote is second, but a distant space between the two applications.

I have a OneNote notebook (labeled with the name of the company where I work) and each project becomes a page in the notebook. When I came to a meeting, I bring my iPad with me, opens the page for that project and use the keyboard to take notes. Again, I'm more concerned about getting the information below accurately and only fix a bug if my memory of an event is prevented. Therefore, I'm going to fix an error on a field name, but I do not care if I got the name wrong person (unless, of course, do not know how his name is spelled).

When OneNote is successful for me is the ability to quickly track action items. If I make a note, I can simply click the task icon on the treadmill and OneNote puts a checkbox in front of the prayer. I will then add a sentence that will follow. At the next meeting of state, I will scan the notes and mark the points of completed action. This is very important for me, because before would have to use some sort of shorthand to track an action item. I begin with the phrase, with three asterisks, highlight, or some other solution.

Also I have OneNote installed on my Mac so you can edit notes on a bigger screen if I need it. I can also access my notebooks in theOneDrive website.

Using Evernote for my personal notes


It is true that I could use OneNote for many of my personal notes. I do not for two reasons: I have years of research notes in the mood to migrate; and I like to have a clear separation of the working notes and personal notes. Thus, if someone asks to see my iPad to look over some notes and not have to worry that they can click in the wrong section and see a personal note.

How to take reliable notes with iPhone and iPad

Moreover, a large part of my personal notes taken by saturating a website is one and commented on it. I find it easier to do this with Evernote. I usually use the iOS extension to crop a page in my research notes. OneNote also has a clipper, but I needed to us. I'll try that when I have to cut a webpage to work.

Unlike OneNote where I have a notebook for work in Evernote I have a different book for each category. I have notebooks for workspaces I have admired, one for investigation of Apple items, notebooks for gaming and references to great long-form writing that I clipped into Evernote.

Using the Notes application


Finally, I have a lot of incidental notes that do not really belong in either OneNote or Evernote. These are the kinds of notes that could put in a small notebook of paper or post-it note. Looking through my notes while I'm writing this I see notes for a Terminal command I need to enter to use a gateway client on my Mac, the site ID that I need to use when I call for support, some adjustments to try on my Amp, and some musical notes need to reference during band practice.

So, why are not those in the other two applications? Usually a note is I do not want to be buried or worrying about a sync error, and are usually only one or two lines of text. At some point, I should go through and group some of them into Evernote, but not a big enough of a deal.

What I would do to improve this


I do not use my iPhone 6 Plus to take notes in meetings, but would like to. The main reason I do is perception. Writing on my iPad it seems that I'm working. Typing on my iPhone it seems that I'm texting. For now, while I'm at work the safest option is to use my iPad. I've thought about getting a small folding Bluetooth keyboard to use in these situations.

Occasionally, I weighed whether to keep my notes divided between OneNote and Evernote is a good decision. Part of me wants to keep most of most of my notes in one place. I'm not as thrilled with OneNote web clipper, though. I think the Evernote clipper does a better job of making the page. For now, however, I'm fine with the division as I am playing to the strengths of each application.

New Apple iPad case scheduled for October 16

New Apple iPad case scheduled
 

Apple has sent out invitations for a special event on 16 October, where the company is almost certain to submit updates this year air the iPad and the iPad Mini. The event, held on the campus of Apple in a much smaller than the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus Launch place, probably also include some updates to other Apple product lines, such as the iMac and Apple TV. There is a remote possibility that we will see something new and crazy on October 16, and a TV, but I think it is unlikely, given recent debut of Apple clock.
new iPads

Top Menu October 18 event is a new Apple iPad and iPad Mini with Retina Display Air. There is a rather persistent rumor that the next iPad Air - call it the iPad Air 2 if you like, or perhaps the Air Plus iPad - will feature a 12.9-inch screen. As with the iPhone 6, several sites have published leaked photos of what appears to be an iPad thinner air, lighter, and bigger.




It is unclear what Apple will do with the iPad Mini with Retina display, but is supposed to get thinner and lighter. No word on whether there will be a 9.7-inch version of the iPad 2 with Air Plus 5.5 iPhone 6 inches, it is arguable that the 7.9-inch iPad Mini makes a lot of sense - but we'll have to wait and see what Apple has on 16 October.
 

A new iMac with Retina display, updated Mac Mini and Apple TV?


Apple should also reveal some other product updates at the event on October 16. We can only guess what these products really could be - but a new 27-inch iMac with Retina (5120 × 2800) display is possible. Teasing invitation "was too long" may indicate that the event will focus primarily on products that have not been updated in a while - Apple TV, the Mac Mini and iPod Nano are overdue an update. Or maybe Apple is just being sarcastic, considering it was a great event just a couple of weeks ago to launch the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus.


The current Mac Mini was released way back in 2012
 

We could also see a MacBook Air with Retina display, or even a brand new product. Using the invitation of the original colors of the rainbow Apple could indicate that there will be a lot of things related to the Mac at the event - or maybe just stayed at my desk for too long now and I'm starting to see patterns where there are no none.

In any case, we're going to have some reporters at the Apple event in Cupertino on October 16, and we'll be live blogging here at ExtremeTech. Stay tuned!

New Apple iOS 8 Mobile Software to arrive on Wednesday

New Apple iOS 8 Mobile Software to arrive

SAN FRANCISCO: New generation Applesoftware to feed their coveted mobile devices is scheduled for release on Wednesday, two days before the arrival of its latest iPhones.

The iOS mobile operating system will be available free for download for iPad iPhone and many models and will be pre-installed on the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, which was released on Friday.

Apple introduced iOS 8 at its annual developer conference in San Francisco in June.

The new management software is designed to provide a seamless experience for users flitting between mobile devices and popular Apple Macintosh computers.

Along with updates to the operating system, the California company unveiled the HealthKit software to manage personal and HomeKit health care for home appliances. They are integrated into the latest system update.

HealthKit provide a safe haven for the data gathered by devices such as fitness band that tracks activity and sleep.

Apple also synchronized HomeKit 8 to iOS software that could let iPhones or iPads can be used as a centralized Internet Control gadgets such as linked door locks, lights, thermostats and security systems.

Apple reached a common network protocol, so that not only can an iPhone be used to open clever locks, but virtual assistant Siri can dim the lights and settings lower thermostat when told, "Get ready for bed . "

Apple has also enhanced graphics and speed capabilities for games, which are consistently among the hottest apps on their mobile devices.

Capabilities woven into operating software include one called "Continuity", which allows tasks started by Apple gadget automatically delivered to another nearby.

Messages or calls can also be handed out between devices. Apple last week announced it is adding a SmartWatch its growing range of devices operating together.

Watch Apple will not be released until early next year

Apple introduces new iPhones, SmartWatch, software

new Apple smartwatch

 

 For the first time in years, Apple iPhones were not the star of the show. Apple released a SmartWatch Tuesday, a portable device that marks the first major entry of the company into a new product category since the debut of the iPad in 2010.


 The move is significant due to recent questions about whether Apple still has the ability to innovate after the death of 2,011 co-founder Steve Jobs.

The introduction of two new device eclipsed the iPhones, larger company that does not quite have larger screens; they will have a new landscape mode to take advantage of the larger screen.

The iPhone 6 will have a screen that measures 4.7 inches, while the iPhone 6 Plus will be 5.5 inches. In both cases, application developers can design applications that can be viewed differently when the phone is horizontal.

Apple also introduced a system to use the phone to make credit card payments in retail stores.

Apple is turning to the past, as it exposes their future. The company is holding the event at the Flint Center for the Performing Arts, the same location where Jobs introduced the Mac computer changing industry 25 years ago. The Cupertino, California, located close to the headquarters of Apple.

As for iPhones, which still represent the main source of profit for Apple, the larger models should help the company compete with Android devices.

This is what unfolded in Tuesday's event



BIGGER iPHONES

 

The iPhone 6 will have a 4.7-inch screen, while the iPhone 6 Plus will be 5.5 inches. The screen resolution on the Plus version will be sharper than previous iPhones, to 401 pixels per inch instead of 326.

With the larger screen is a new horizontal view of the Home screen. Usually icons are stacked vertically, even when the phone is horizontal. Application developers will also have new tools to reorganize their content to take advantage of the larger screen.

The new phones are not as great as the last flagship phone of Samsung - 5.1 inch to 5.7 inch Galaxy S5 and to Note 4 - but they will be large enough to neutralize a key advantage of Samsung and other manufacturers Android have had.

In particular, Note Samsung phone is not growing this year. Last year Note 3 was 5.7 inches. Instead, Samsung is emphasizing other hardware features, such as a sharper screen. Also releasing a model with a curved edge to show the time, weather and other information on the side of the phone.

Apple says the new phone will be faster and have better battery life than previous versions. The phones also have a new sensor, barometer, to estimate the amount you've climbed the stairs, not just how far you have walked or run.

Of course, some people still use their phones to actually make calls. When there is poor cellular reception, people will be able to make regular calls over Wi-Fi. The transfer between the two networks will be transparent. In the USA, this feature will initially be available through T-Mobile.

The resolution of the camera is 8 megapixels, while Android and Windows Phone rivals are pushing that. The S5, for example, is 16 megapixels. However, the number of megapixels is only one factor in what makes a good photo. Apple says it is putting in new sensors for better shots.

Apple is also enhancing the role of video in slow motion, allowing even slower shots. The camera is capable of taking 240 frames per second, twice what is on the iPhone 5s last year. Normally, the video is at 60 frames per second.

The new phones will begin shipping in the USA September 19, with pre-orders to start on Friday. Starting Prices are comparable to those in the past - $ 199 with a two years for the iPhone 6 with 16 gigabytes of storage.

However, models of elevators have double the memory than before - $ 299 for 64 GB and $ 399 for 128 gigabytes. The iPhone 6 Plus phones will cost $ 100 more for each configuration.
 

 

 

MOBILE PAYMENTS 

 

Apple is calling its new payment system Pay Apple.

You will be able to use your phone's camera to capture a photo of your card. Apple will verify that behind the scenes and add it to the account passbook your phone so you can make payments to a retailer. Apple announced several merchants who accept this system, including Macy's, Whole Foods, Walgreens and Disney stores - and, of course, Apple stores.

Many companies have tried to push mobile payment services, but none has caught on widely. Cook says that's because the business models have focused on self-interest of companies rather than the user experience. The latter, Cook says, is "exactly what Apple does best."

For security, the card number is stored only on the device. Every time you pay a card once to create the transaction.

 

A SmartWatch

 


The audience burst into applause as Cook proclaimed that he had "one more thing". It was how Jobs used to close his speeches.

That was a closer SmartWatch Apple thing. It's called the Apple clock instead of iWatch many people had been speculating.

Consumer electronics companies have yet to demonstrate a compelling need smartwatches while bracelets have been largely niche products aimed at tracking fitness activities. Apple device seems to change that.

Consider the history of the company: music players, smartphones and tablet computers existed long before Apple made ​​their own versions. But they were not the main or until the current popular iPod, iPhone and iPad arrived. According to Jobs, Apple made ​​those products easy and fun to use.

Cook said Apple had to invent a new interface for the clock because simply shrinking a phone would not work.

Much of the interaction would be through the dial on the clock, which Apple calls the digital crown. It is used to zoom in and out of a map, for example, which is not blocking the screen, what would have happened if you were pinching in and out of zoom.

Apple has also been working with application developers to create new functionality. You will be able to open the doors of the rooms at Starwood hotels or remembering where you parked your car with a BMW application.

The new watch will come in a variety of styles and straps, with a choice of two sizes. Clocks competing vendors have been criticized for being too large for small arms.

The clock will require one of the new iPhones or an iPhone 5, or 5c 5s. It will be available early next year, with a starting price of $ 349

  

 

NEW SOFTWARE

 

While much of the attention has focused on the new devices, software powering these devices is becoming its annual update. Apple iOS considers 8 to be the biggest update since the introduction of the App Store in 2008.

Current users of iPhone and iPad will be eligible for the free upgrade, too. Apple is proud of pushing customers to the latest version of the software, allowing application developers to incorporate new features without having to worry about the abandonment of existing users. With Android, many recent phones can not be upgraded immediately because of the restrictions imposed by manufacturers and wireless service providers.

Among other things, 8 will allow iOS devices work best in sync. For example, it is possible to start a message on an iPhone and finish it on an iPad. With a forthcoming update called Mac Yosemite, will be able to continue working in the same message on a Mac computer also.

These features extend handover to the new Apple clock, too.

The new software will be available for existing users on September 17.

Closing the event, U2 performed on stage before Cook made ​​his new album, "Songs of Innocence", available for free to all customers of Apple's iTunes.

Apple shares rose 1 percent to $ 99.36 in afternoon trading Tuesday.

Apple shares hit high for 2013 on holiday hope

Apple products are not only hot selling items this holiday, they are also popular online buying tools

The first customer of the tablet iPad in an Apple Store in Amsterdam

 Apple shares rose to the highest level this year as investors bet products like the latest iPads and iPhones will be hot sellers this holiday, helping the consumer technology giant kick-start earnings growth again.

The stock climbed 1.9% to $556.07 Friday. Earlier in the day, it touched $594.59, a 2013 high.

Apple unveiled two new iPhones earlier this year and more recently launched the new iPad Air and an upgraded iPad mini.

The iPad mini was among top sellers at Walmart on Thanksgiving, while Target said the iPad Air was a hot item at its stores. On eBay.com, one iPad was selling every second as of midnight on Thanksgiving.

"Apple products should be the holiday gift of choice this year," said Brian Marshall, an analyst at ISI Group. "The company has a great product cycle currently, the stock is cheap and we expect $600 within the next several months."

Apple gadgets are also popular shopping tools. Mobile devices running on the company's iOS operating system -- basically iPads and iPhones -- made up more than a quarter of all online traffic to major retail websites early on Black Friday. These devices also accounted for 18% of all online sales in the period, according to IBM Digital Analytics Benchmark.

Apple shares have lagged technology sector rivals and the broader stock market this year on concern about a lack of earnings growth and a slim pipeline of new products.

However, investors have recently become more confident that earnings growth will resume in 2014, according to Walter Piecyk, an analyst at BTIG.

There's also hope that China Mobile, the largest wireless carrier in that country, will soon start selling Apple products, he noted.

Japan's largest carrier, NTT Docomo, recently started offering iPhones and that helped Apple grab 76% of smartphone sales in the country in October, according to research firm Kantar Worldpanel ComTech.

"We would attribute the recent jump [in Apple shares] to a combination of renewed China Mobile speculation and strong product positioning heading into the holidays, including much improved iPhone supply," said Will Power, an analyst at RW Baird.

Gene Munster, an analyst at Piper Jaffray, checked 60 Apple stores recently and found that 90% of iPhone 5s models were available on average. That was up from 31% two weeks earlier and 10% at the beginning of October.

"We view the improvement in supply as an encouraging sign that Apple has begun to catch up to demand," Munster wrote in a note to investors.
