Open source software: The question of security

The transparent nature of open source software does not make it any more vulnerable than closed systems, experts argue.

Chromebooks just don’t get the hardware they deserve

The economics may not work out in a way that we’ll get great high-end Chromebooks

As I’ve spent an increasing amount of time using Chromebooks over the course of the last year, reviewing several personally, I’m starting to get worried about the state of the Chromebook market. While there are plenty of very capable Chromebook options out there that represent a fantastic value to price-conscious consumers, I’m wondering if there will ever be a time when we see a selection of higher-end devices for those who want (or frankly need) more.

The “Chromebooks are just the new netbooks” argument has been thrown around quite liberally in the past two years, but I’ve always been optimistic that we would eventually see a range of Chromebooks that aren’t just cheap machines meant to undercut the competition. But as we enter a new generation of Chromebooks hitting the market with low-cost and low-power Intel and ARM processors, the cheapest possible display components, limited memory and uninspired designs, I’m losing some of my confidence.

Microsoft’s Windows 9: Much ado about little, given cloud shift

Windows 9 will be important—if only to put Windows 8 to bed—but could be the last of Microsoft’s big bang OS releases if CEO Satya Nadella’s cloud-centric plan works out well.

How to save data when using Google Chrome

You can use Chrome to save data, and this is how you get that going

Unfortunately, I am on a limited data plan with my carrier. I know that most of you are probably in the same boat. And on limited data plans, data saved is data earned. Many popular music streaming apps have made it possible to save data by storing music on our devices. Google also makes it possible for us to save data using its Chrome web browser. That’s definitely something I can get behind. Data savings are made possible by compression from Google’s servers.

So how do you go about it on an Android device? Let’s find out! It’s not too painful of a process.

Apple filed to expand sapphire production, likely for the iWatch

Apple filed to expand sapphire production, likely for the iWatch

In case you wanted even more evidence Apple is planning to release a new sapphire laden device, here is a signed document.

PTT Research Senior Analyst Matt Margolis has posted an Apple filing asking the U.S Department of Commerce for permission to expand its sapphire production operations at its new Mesa, Arizona factory. Everything looks real down to Apple Director of Global Trade Compliance James J. Patton’s signature.

The alleged request was filed on July 2 and it asks Department of Commerce for an expedited review so that Apple could meet an "aggressive go-live timeline of August 2014." The letter goes also on to make several mentions to sapphire and "jewelry components."

Adding everything up, it seems as though Apple was looking to kick start sapphire production by the beginning of the month. The newly reported documents tie closely to reports last week suggesting Apple was hoping to begin producing mass quantities of sapphire by the end of August at its GT Advanced Technologies co-operated factory.

Time’s up

So far, we’ve heard many early reports pointing to the Cupertino introducing a sapphire screen device. Once again there’s no mention what size or type of electronic we might see sapphire being incorporated into.

Due to the lateness of the sapphire production it seems even less likely it will come to the iPhone 6. Assuming history repeats itself, Apple’s next handset should show up at its usual September event and go on sale close to a week later.

It would be nearly impossible for Apple to go from producing phones, assembling them and then launching the device into a full retail launch all within the span of a month and a half. At the same time reports have suggested sapphire is being reserved for a more expensive iPhone 6.

The heavily speculated iWatch seems like a much more likely candidate to receive the sapphire screen upgrade. Luxury watches typically come with the scratch resistant material and a recent report also tipped the Apple wearable to get the sapphire treatment.

Apple could also easily announce the smartwatch at a later date unlike the iPhone, which is expected shortly.

Duplica la autonomía del Samsung Galaxy S5 con la nueva batería de Mophie

Es por ello que los principales fabricantes de accesorios se centran igualmente en el smartphone para diseñar soluciones que logren mitigar el problema de la autonomía. Mugen Power ya nos ofrecía una batería con algo más de carga sin aumentar el grosor del equipo y ahora Mophie nos trae una solución más completa, aunque no exenta de inconvenientes.Bateria de Mophie para el Samsung Galaxy S5
