The Smart Tech Evolution.

So I guess now that cell phones have come full circle, who’s next? Perhaps the Smartwatch oddly enough brings about the Smart Pocketwatch.

Yes, I know that would be as convenient as the Apple Pocketwatch featured at the video link below. But would that stop a hipster, uh no. ^_^

Martin Cooper. Some call him a pioneer; others call him a visionary. We call him the wizard that came up with a genius idea: Why can't I just take my phone with me?

I know I haven't posted anything in a very long time, so I made this somewhat humorous post... ;)

A Great Nexus.

Perhaps the lovechild of the latest LG Smartphone and a high-end Nokia Lumia would result in a 5.2-inch display and a 13-megapixel back camera with a 5-megapixel front camera, Android 4.5 Lollypop, 4k resolution recording, Bluetooth 4.0 with dual-band Wi-Fi plus NFC, and next-gen Qualcomm Snapdragon quad-core processor clocked at 3GHz. O_O

Although this is just a Nexus 6 concept and it will probably never happen, one can dream right? What features would you like to see on the next Nexus phone?

Taking it from the general public, 91mobiles conceptualized a Google Nexus concept and we think it's pretty much aligned with what people require. Nexus 6 takes things to the next level and is built around a 5.2-inch LCD display featuring a full-HD resolution. Corning’s Gorilla glass protects it and the curved design fits your face perfectly. The pressure-sensitive screen lets you unlock the device by simply tapping on it or swiping upwards.

Now if Google terminates its “Nexus” brand around early next year (rumors going around due to recent moves by Google), we might get one last Nexus phone and it better be awesome...

Microsoft Will Try To Put Windows 8 In Its Rear-View Mirror.

I guess Microsoft will be making Windows 8 the new Windows Vista as it tries to replace it with Windows 9 (code name "Threshold"), supposedly in early 2015.

No surprise there since the Windows 8 UI failed to attract most traditional non-touch screen desktop owners (and that's a huge number of computers). It seems like the rejection of Windows 8 in most part is do to consumers not ready to turn their traditional desktop computers into a smartphone/tablet type of device.

I can see how for those with non-touch screen desktop/laptop computers, Windows 8 can seem a bit odd and not like their traditional Windows experience. Microsoft trying to turn Windows desktop computers into some kind of big Windows Phone has obviously not been a big hit.

I previously wrote about Threshold in Microsoft to Take Windows to the "Threshold", Further Changes Coming in Windows "Threshold" and Big Changes Are Coming to Windows. This is the release my sources previously pegged as being the one that will see the return of the Start menu and the ability to run Metro-style apps on the desktop alongside desktop applications.

But Threshold is more important than any specific updates. Windows 8 is tanking harder than Microsoft is comfortable discussing in public, and the latest release, Windows 8.1, which is a substantial and free upgrade with major improvements over the original release, is in use on less than 25 million PCs at the moment. That's a disaster, and Threshold needs to strike a better balance between meeting the needs of over a billion traditional PC users while enticing users to adopt this new Windows on new types of personal computing devices. In short, it needs to be everything that Windows 8 is not.

What do you think, can Microsoft turn their Windows woes around fast enough or is it all continuously down hill from here? I myself can't wait for the WinAndroid dual booting computers-tablets like Asus is starting to manufacture.

MS has hypnotized ppl to belive them even whenthey get cheated. Not once you received WINDOWS OS without a patch or without update or without stealing your machines contents by MS, it is like, you are having a gr8 car with four wheels of different sizes always all the time.:)
I do not see any thing gr8 about Windiws, except that we are used to it and used to their cheating

SkyJack: The Drone That Hijacks Other Drones In Mid-air.

I guess deliveries by drone will already have an adversary/predator waiting for them way before they even come to fruition. I'm sure there will also be folks that will shoot down drones just for kicks, or perhaps more towns like the Colorado town that proposed a "$100 drone bounty" to shoot down drones on site (I posted about that months ago).

Amazon's Prime Air announcement last week brought concerns about the use of commercial drones to the fore, but one programmer may have just muddied the waters even more. Notable hacker Samy Kamkar recently modified a Parrot AR.Drone 2 with his custom software, called SkyJack, allowing it to seek out the wireless signals of other UAVs and take control of them, even while in flight.

If his name sounds familiar, that's because Kamkar is the same hacker-turned-legit security researcher that released a worm that took down MySpace back in 2005 and later went on to expose security weaknesses in several major credit cards.

For his latest project, Kamkar rigged a Parrot AR.Drone 2.0 with a Raspberry Pi, a USB battery, and two wireless adapters, before uploading his custom programming. The SkyJack software is designed for Linux devices and runs a few supporting programs in sequence to effectively hijack any drones in the area.

Drones beware...

The Self-Folding Origami Robot.

This miniature origami robot can walk, climb, dig, carry, swim and dissolve into nothing, and it's only the first step. Just wait for the nanobots that will clear clogged arteries.

So what can we do with super tiny self-folding robots? Researchers hope to develop even smaller autonomous robots with additional sensors that can dissolve in water. Such tiny devices could have a variety of medical uses when introduced inside of a human body, maybe zapping cancer cells or cleaning clogged arteries.

It sounds a bit scary having nanobots fixing your body, hopefully they could never take over your body or go haywire like in some sci-fi movie. LOL!

Check out the video below to see this miniature origami robot in action...

1000x Quicker Than Google Fiber.

Wow, just wow! But I wonder what the cost for such insane speeds of 1.4 Tbps (Terabit) would be. Supposedly with those speeds you can stream 64 hours of HD Netflix, or 38 hours in 3D/4K in under one second. O_O

Fiber Internet is great no matter who's laying it down. Gigabit connection speeds? Hell yes. But if you thought that was fast, researchers in the UK have something better that will not only blow your hair back, but blow it right off: a 1.4 terabit connection, and all with commercial-grade hardware.

Developed by a joint research team from French telecoms company Alcatel-Lucent and BT, the magic of this incredible connection isn't in fancy hardware. Instead, it's in a new protocol named Flexigrid that lets you lay multiple signals over the top of each other in a a single cable, which lets data race from point A to point B in parallel. When layered all together, seven 200 Gbps channels form one, mega "Alien Super Channel" that offers the 1.4 Tbps speeds across a 255 miles stretch of fiber that already exists between the BT Tower in London and a BT research campus in Suffolk.

Even though Flexigrid theoretically doesn't require any infrastructure changes since it can run under current fiber lines. I highly doubt we will see it here in the U.S. anytime soon, since better speeds and better service (no throttling/caps) at reasonable prices seems to basically be against cable company policies...

Bitcoin Users Smash Their iPhones And Get A Free Nexus 5.

Well I guess that's one way to get an Android phone, lol. Though the real reason to smash their iPhones was not entirely just to get a free Nexus 5, but more to do with them saying goodbye to Apple. Due to the banning of the Blockchain Bitcoin payment app from the app store, affecting its supposed 120,000 users.

Blockchain was the last remaining Bitcoin wallet app available for iOS devices.

Early Thursday morning, just hours after Wired first reported the deletion of Blockchain from the App Store, a member of Reddit’s Bitcoin community issued a proposition: “For every 100 upvotes this post receives, I will gift someone a Nexus 5 for a video of them smashing their iPhone.”

The redditor who proposed the tradeoff, “round-peg,” included the following stipulations: Only the first five people to submit videos would receive a Nexus 5; the smashed iPhone had to be of the iPhone 5 or 5S variety, running iOS 7; and the video needed to include the person’s face, name, and reason for deciding to destroy his or her iPhone.

“Your reason should include the fact that Apple is anti-Bitcoin, not just because you want a free trade for a new phone,” wrote round-peg.

About two hours after round-peg’s post went live, redditor “netpastor” became the first person to take round-peg at his word by posting a video of him smashing his 32GB iPhone 5 with a piece of metal tubing.

Well I guess Apple is 100% anti-Bitcoin now, but could Google ever do the same?...

Mac Pro Hackintosh Made Using An Actual Bathroom Trash Can.

Well I guess someone had some spare time on their hands and I'm sure they had fun making it.

German modder Dschijn over on the Tonymacx86 forums has created his very own Apple Mac Pro Hackintosh which he created using a bathroom trash can bought from Amazon.

The awesome later 2013 Mac Pro replica is equipped with a Core i3 Haswell processor, Gigabyte z87n wifi, Radeon 7750 and solid state disk (SSD) & HDD together with a ATX power supply. The finished Mac Pro Hackintosh measures 18cm width, 26cm height and has also been finished in limed edition red to finish the final effect.

Sure the specs don't match a real Mac Pro but I guess this can be the affordable version for us peasants, lulz... ^_^

500Mbps Internet Over Phone Lines Approved.

I'm all for it if it can offer me a better deal/savings so that I can finally ditch my dinosaur cable company with their data caps and high monthly fees. Urgh!

The International Telecommunication Union (ITU) yesterday gave initial approval to a data transmission standard capable of 500Mbps speeds in both directions over existing telephone wires. The new standard, G.fast, can be used on phone lines within 250 meters of a distribution point, benefiting fiber-to-the-node deployments. With telcos not having to build fiber on the proverbial "last mile" (or, really, 250 meters), this could bring fiber-like speeds to many more homes.

The ITU describes G.fast as providing speeds up to 1Gbps over existing phone lines, but telecom equipment vendor Huawei notes that "Reports of G.fast bandwidth exceeding 1 Gbit/s generally refer to the sum of the upstream and downstream bandwidths," or 500Mbps in each direction. And although G.fast is usable within 250 meters of a node, the highest speeds aren't likely to be available on the top end of that range.

G.fast is not to be confused with DSL as it operates on much higher frequencies, 106/212 MHz compared to DSL at 17/30 MHz. Though it can offer very high speeds it might never be anywhere near 500Mbps under real life conditions.

With that said, G.fast will surely be good competition for the cable companies as it starts to roll out in the next few years (2015/2016 more likely)...
