Article inside Android L updates for Samsung Galaxy S5 and Galaxy Note 4 may be launched in November / December

By Tiko377 - 12 hours ago

Android L updates for Samsung Galaxy S5 and Galaxy Note 4 may be launched in November / DecemberArguably the most important Android update ever, Android L has yet to receive a final name. Even so, we already know a lot about this new version of GoogleÂ’s OS, including the fact that manufacturers should start pushing Android L updates before the end of the year.

While we still have to wait a bit for official release dates, we now have details on when SamsungÂ’s Galaxy S5 and Galaxy Note 4 may get Android L. According to Sam Mobile (usually a very reliable source when it comes to Samsung-related info), SamsungÂ’s two flagship handsets should be updated to Android L by the end of November, or in early December. Of course, that may be a bit later than some Samsung users were expecting. But we have to keep in mind that Samsung will have a lot of work to do optimizing its TouchWiz UI for Android L.

Hopefully, weÂ’ll hear more on this soon. Until then, for a close look at Android L, you should check out our preview of it here.

Article inside ‘No chance’ of finding an iPhone 6 Plus tomorrow

By Tiko377 - 12 hours ago

We just spoke with multiple sources at carrier stores and authorized Apple retailer partner locations, and the straight up fact is itÂ’s going to harder to find an iPhone 6 Plus tomorrow than a Turbo Man. We are told that stores have been receiving shipments all throughout the day, and out of all the new iPhone 6 models received, typically only about 2-3% are iPhone 6 Plus units, and in only one color.

There is “no chance” of finding an iPhone 6 Plus unit to purchase tomorrow, we were told. Sources also said there are no 16GB iPhone 6 Plus devices to be found.

As far as the iPhone 6, all colors and storage capacities are available to some degree. Apple Stores are going to be the best bet as Apple always stocks its own stores with loads more inventory, but I donÂ’t believe the Plus breakdown is going to be much different there.

WeÂ’ll keep you updated as other sources start to report inventory to us.

New Traffic Radar Gun Will Detect When Drivers Are Texting

By thetfd - 12 hours ago



WeÂ’re all familiar with the radar guns that police use to catch and ticket speeding drivers. But the next stage of that technology is now poised to nab drivers who are engaged in a behavior thatÂ’s possibly even more dangerous: texting behind the wheel.

A Virginia-based company called ComSonics is developing a new type of radar gun that can actually detect whether text message radio frequencies are being emitted from passing cars. According to The Virginian-Pilot, ComSonics says the device is “close to production.”

Virginia is one of 44 U.S. states that has a ban on texting while driving.

As the topic of distracted driving continues to gain nationwide attention, ComSonics isnÂ’t the only company attempting to create at technology designed to temper it.

Third-party apps for Android and iOS, like DriveScribe and DriveOFF, detect when your car is moving and will block all incoming notifications on your phone. And an activity-reporting app called Canary can be installed on young driversÂ’ phones to let parents know when their kids are calling or texting while driving.

Apple itself has been sitting on a filed patent for a “driver handheld computing device lock-out” to keep iPhone owners from texting while on the road. As for when or how exactly this feature would be rolled out to iOS or the company’s new CarPlay system, that’s anyone’s guess.

ItÂ’s yet to be determined whether law enforcement in Virginia or anywhere else will adopt ComSonicsÂ’ texting-detection gadget. Whether it pans out or doesnÂ’t, the best advice we can give would be to keep your eyes open and on the road. Slow down and put the phone down.

Android L phones will shut out NSA for increased privacy

By xFMx ALCHEMiST - 12 hours ago



via AC

The next version of Google's Android operating system, known as Android L, will automatically encrypt user data out of the box, making it more difficult for law enforcement officials and security personnel to access your personal data. Though Android has had optional encryption for devices for some time now, next month's Android software update will be the first time that encryption will be turned on out of the box for all users.

Google's announcement follows Apple's announcement that it neither stores nor has access to personal information from its iOS and Mac OS X users. Both companies are feeling public pressure in an era of increased NSA surveillance, and Google's announcement will help it distance itself from government snooping, a move that could help Android gain further adoption in the government and enterprise space.

The negative consequence, according to the Washington Post, is that law enforcement officials warn that it may be difficult to solve crime:

Quote:

Expanded deployment of encryption by Google and Apple, however, will have the largest effect on law enforcement officials, who have long warned that restrictions on their access to electronic devices makes it much harder for them to prevent and solve crimes.
Additionally, due to the fact that Google's software update releases trickle down to users, it may take some time for older devices to benefit from the encryption. New devices, like the rumored HTC Nexus 9 tablet and the much-speculated Motorola-made Nexus phone, should ship with Android L out of the box and will have encryption automatically enabled.

Image inside You Can Now Attach Your iPad Directly to Your Face to Experience Virtual Reality

By thetfd - 12 hours ago




It was only a matter of time. The iPad has been adapted for all sorts of intriguing and surprising purposes over the years (including, recently, a sex toy). Meanwhile, a number of enterprising organizations and individuals have sought to create makeshift virtual reality goggles out of people’s readily available mobile devices (e.g., Google Cardboard). Now the two trends have converged: AirVR is a Kickstarter project from Toronto design firm Metatecture that seeks $20,000 in funding from backers to create an inexpensive headset for converting your iPad mini (Retina) or soon-to-be-delivered iPhone 6 Plus into a portable virtual reality viewer.

It works as you might expect: Slide the iPad mini or iPhone 6 Plus into a bulky headset with two lenses displaying left-eye and right-eye imagery, respectively. Metatecture says it’s already developed some initial apps for the product, and points out that the headset also leaves all the ports on your iOS device open, so you can attach other potentially useful peripherals like a game controller. If successful, the company plans to begin selling its AirVR headsets for just $49 a pop in early 2015.

“AirVR brings the magic of Virtual Reality with you everywhere you go,” the Kickstarter campaign suggests. “Ditch the tangle of cables and experience VR anywhere in the world.”

However, what’s left unsaid is the fact that AirVR’s headset, at least as proposed in the prototypes shown off on the Kickstarter page, would require sticking the iPad mini or iPhone 6 Plus hardware directly over your face, limiting your mobility while playing and making you look like some sort of dark Cronenbergian visage/goofus. Are you annoyed by people holding their iPads in front of them to take photos? This is that times a thousand, so it’s probably not the product for you. That said, Metatecture clearly put thought and craftsmanship into the AirVR project, and for those curious about virtual reality who don’t have access to an Oculus Rift and are too lazy to make their own headsets, it may yet prove a viable alternative option.

Article inside Samsung rumored to be working on its own GPU

By Tiko377 - 1 day ago

A report published on Tuesday says that Samsung is planning on producing its own GPU. This is something that Sammy allegedly has been working on for some time, hiring talent from superstar silicon slingers like NVIDIA, AMD and Intel. Building a GPU is said to be quite a difficult task. Samsung has a good reputation when it comes to the Exynos CPU, but building a graphics chip is a different thing entirely.

Financially, eating your own home cooking can help save you some money in the long run. In the short run, there are plenty of development costs involved. But once you have these chips rolling off the line for a while, you can save plenty of money. Eventually, Samsung might be able to pass along the savings to the consumer in the form of lower device pricing.

There is no precise timetable mentioned as part of the rumors, and it still might be some time before a Samsung GPU is ready for prime time. For the time being, we will file this away and keep it in the back of our mind as something that still could be quite a few years away from being introduced.

Article inside Apple to unveil new iPads, release OS X Yosemite on Oct. 21

By mrfreak76 - 1 day ago



On the heels of announcing two new iPhones and teasing the Apple Watch, Apple has a bit more to say. The company is planning to hold its next event on Oct. 21, where it will unveil two new iPads and announce the release of OS X Yosemite, the next version of its Mac operating system, according to sources familiar with the matter.

Apple plans to unveil the sixth generation of its iPad and the third edition of iPad mini during the event. OS X Yosemite, a complete visual overhaul for the Mac, is slated to be released immediately after the event.

Last year, Apple held an event on Oct. 22, where it announced the iPad Air, second generation iPad mini, and released OS X Mavericks.

Apple will release the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus on Sept. 19.

The iPad Air 2, or iPad 6, will likely be given a similar fleet of upgrades to the third-gen iPad mini. Technically, the iPad Air and iPad mini with Retina display are almost identical, with only a slight difference in processor clock speed separating the also differently-sized slates.

As well as Apple’s new A8 processor and M8 motion coprocessor, the Touch ID fingerprint sensor is also expected to début on the larger devices after a successful roll-out with the iPhone 5s, and as ever, it’s also likely that both tablets will be thinner than the current line-up.

As far as Yosemite is concerned, thereÂ’s not really much to tell. We already know of most of the features, and with the numerous previews and betas, have had a chance to monitor its progress.
