  • Dr. Ataken Peker, the founder of Liquidmetal Technologies said that in the making and design of Apple’s new wireless antennas Liquidmetal’s shapeless metal alloys might be used. Dr. Ataken Peker pointed out at an interview which was held by Cult of Mac, that the properties which Liquidmetal hold, makes it a very useful material for an antenna. This can be a reason behind Apple’s signing of a broad licensing agreement with the company.


    Commonly illustrated as metallic glass, the different alloys that go into the making Liquidmetal provides great strength at minimum weights, utmost durability or wear resistance, and the softening temperature being low, it is easier to mould it into designs and shapes that are complex in nature. Liquidmetal is already being used in various consumer products such as sports equipments especially skis, golf clubs etc. jewellery, and also in electronic equipments where it appears in USB thumb drive casings, MP3 players, and cell phones. The wireless modem, Verizon USB727, which is famous for its excellent reception capability uses Liquidmetal technology in its antenna. Moreover, Apple also uses the same technology in the newly launched Magic Trackpad.



    Apple may not be eyeing for Liquidmetal to be solely used in the making of the simple antenna, it may as well be used in the seamless, complex casings of products such as iPod, unlocked  iPhone4 and the iPad. Moreover this technology can also be used to make novel casings that receive radio signals. The Bezel Antenna that is used in iPhone 4 can be replaced by an outer casing that receives signals thus making the whole casing itself an antenna. Liquidmetal has properties that allow it to be bended without fatigue or erosion of any sort so it can also be used to make one piece foldable devices too.

  • Fotopedia Heritage, the new app for iPad and iPhone users, now offers access to over a few thousand works by photographers who are a part of the Fotopedia community bringing together more than 20.000 photos locating close to 3.000 places of interest throughout World Heritage locations. Fotopedia is now officially a collaborative encyclopedia of photographs from all over the world. Fotopedia Heritage was developed by a team headed by Jean-Marie Hullot, who is the former CTO of American computer company NeXT and has been a part of Apple's application release division.


    According to Fotopedia, as this incredible app was coded, the entire Fotopedia community placed and screened the photos carefully in order to ensure a high level of relevance and immaculate quality. Fotopedia CEO Jean-Marie Hullot also says that their much awaited application has now reinvent the whole coffee table photo-book experience as the app merges the whole concept of a limitless number of photos with equally vast and needless to say, relevant information.


    Fotopedia Heritage allows iOS platform device owners to navigate through content easily, with the help of tags, and at the same time learn about every place they search for by going through rich descriptions provided by UNESCO and complemented by Wikipedia.


    Initial test on the unlocked iPhone4 confirm this app is bug free despite the small glitch that displays information on this app on a small part of the iPhone screen. However this app was intended to be more appropriately for the iPad in the first place. Users also have the added benefit of a proper and interactive map service on this very map. TripAdvisor has provided travel information for all the World Heritage Location anyone may find interest in, for a trip.


    The only issue with this app is that it requires either iOS 3.1.3 or a later version to function fully. Otherwise it is compatible with all iOS devices.

  • AlwaysOnPC recently unleashed its new version the Virtual PC app centered around the Android and iOS platforms. The feature release comes with about forty pre-installed programs that include a mobile office suite and the Firefox browser with enabled Flash functions. AlwaysOnPC aims at putting the incredible capacities of a desktop machine into the narrow dimensions of an iPhone, iPad and Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 Unlocked Android phone.


    The application provides users with a mix of tools that help productivity and services that enable users to almost discard their desktops. While Open Office allows users to copy, paste and edit through apps, and also save the most common types of files like Word (.docx or .doc), PowerPoint (.ppt, .pptx) and Excel (.xls, .xlsx), and much more.


    The absence of a Flash enabled environment has always been a highly debated problem put forth to Apple and this issue continued to disappoint anticipating users, up until now. AlwaysOnPC finally delivers an unlocked iPhone4 and iPad Flash Player bundled with Firefox so the users can browse the whole Web without any hitches on the device, at long last. Although full audio support or even motion are still not enabled on this device, with Apple working on the aforementioned improvements, customers can still enjoy full access to sites like Google Analytics, Facebookgames, and a lot more from their device.


    Hosted by "Internet Cloud," AlwaysOnPC actually offers a proper encrypted SSH protocol connection during data exchange on devices. This provides total solid security along with the promised high levels of performance for several common tasks. For example a user can now access large files, say maybe a PDF file, or even PowerPoint decks and of course Excel Spreadsheets of as much as 100Mb size or even more from an email attachment, a storage service online such as Megaupload at speeds up to more than ten times sooner than the other competing mobile service providers. A gem of a release indeed!

  • The Simon Property Group, that current owns more than 350 malls in the United States of America has teamed up with a startup from Silicon Valley called Shopkick in order to devise a way to make cell phone coupons work.


    Starting from August, around 25 malls in the cities of Loa Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago and New York will have devises installed that will help Shopkick in its effort to make its cell phone coupons work. The malls owned by Simon Property Group, have on an average, 140-150 stores and the shops that will be participating in this scheme will have to have speakers installed near its entrance, which will emit a high frequency sound that is beyond the audibility limit of humans, but the frequency will match that of the microphones in mobile phones. When a customer walks by the store, they can activate the application, which is by the way, only available on unlocked iPhone4 and Android powered devices, and will start to receive points, discount offers, news and updates about what the shop has to offer and so much more that the shop could use to get you inside and cajole you to part with your money.


    Four other big guns in the retail business are also using the latest application from Shopkick, the most recognizable being Macy’s Big Buy, although the other three wished to remain anonymous. Macy’s will have the technology up and running in almost 25% of its store in one week in the test phase and if the experiment goes well, they will expand it to the other stores as well. Sources reveal the Macy’s stores in San Francisco might be the first ones to have this technology.


    However, the skepticism about it is still there and experts believe that it will drive young people to shop online even more.

  • BlackBerry releases the Torch
    Posted on August 22, 2010 by Pure Mobile

    It’s official! Finally BlackBerry has answered all the prayers from its ‘worshippers’ and released the new Unlocked Torch 9800, the vertical slider and it will be going live on AT&T. it packs quite a punch, it must be said, for RIM and also the new BlackBerry 6 operating system. The Torch, however, has been hailed as one of the best offerings from RIM in quite some time and the news time that it is getting is nothing short of what it deserves.



    The new device is very impressive, to put in short. The full QWERTY keypad was a cause for concern for many users, but after prolonged sessions of testing it, it has been found to work just fine. The slider display also does not cause any sort of hindrances to the QWERTY keypad in no way, and once you open the keyboard to use it, you will find that the device balances nicely in your hand as well. The BlackBerry 6 also fares quite well and although it is not much different from earlier renditions of the Operating System, the users of BlackBerry unlocked cell phone will more or less be satisfied with the total package that the company is offering them.


    Perhaps the most impressive thing about the Touch is the Touch screen display. RIM’s previous touch screens do not have a very good reputation, but the Torch does it no harm and rather enhances it very much and puts it on the same category as the iPhone or such devices. The response of the display is very prompt and the latest pinch-to-zoom feature is very much a delight to use and is very much like those on the iPhone4 unlocked handset.


    AT&T is offering the BlackBerry for $199 and here is the real test for the phone and everyone is eager to see how it actually fares in the market.

  • The people at Nokia and Apple were expected to provide genuine haptic feedback technologies to devices such as the iPad and iPhone that would allow feedback on the touch screen, which can be perceived by the sense of touch and also can emulate the real sensation of variable surfaces and buttons. A demonstration from Senseg displays Apple’s iPhone4 and iPad working with Senseg E-Sense which is a new type of feedback technology. Senseg E-Sense has used electrical charges and the feel of a touch screen has completely changed. It is highly possible that iPhone makers are seriously considering localized haptics to use in their yet-to-be released, new-generation iDevices because the demo was shown on an unconcealed iPad. Now first-timers are probably wondering what exactly “tactile feedback” and “localized haptics” mean. The word “haptic” originated from the Greek word “haptikos” which means something pertaining to the sensation of touch. It originated from “haptesthai”, the Greek verb which means to “touch” or “contact”.



    Tactile feedback is a term that is used in describing any sensation which is touch-based. In the world of unlocked smartphones the term has a range of descriptions, from the way a cell phone vibrates to show that a key is depressed to the way a finger presses to click a button. Often “tactile feedback” is replaced by the word “haptic feedback” as they are interchangeable words. However, the future lies in “localized feedback”. Handsets which have genuine haptic feedback technology installed in them would not simply vibrate when someone presses a key. Vibration feedback technology, though useful to some extent, is crude and a mere compromise till the grand entry of localized haptics is witnessed. With the advent of gen-next haptic technology touch screen would be able to create variable sensations when a user touches the display surface. The changes would be localized, restricted to the area under the direct touch of the finger.

  • Gangster goes to Miami
    Posted on August 22, 2010 by Pure Mobile

    It was only a year back, when Gangster: West Coast Hustle was released by Gameloft. The obvious inspiration for it was the Grand Theft Auto series by Rockstar Games. And as it seems, Gameloft has again been ‘inspired’ by the series and will be launching the follow up Gangster: Miami Vindication in a few weeks.


    The backdrop of the game is beautiful Miami. The game is said to be full of unrestricted environments where you will be required to take up missions, with a combination of action and driving sequences and so you better brush up on those skills of yours phone. As it was with its predecessor, here also, you will be required to brawl, steal, kill i.e., get involved with a number of criminal activities as you advance through the game. The company has promised to surpass all previous levels of 3D graphics, as it looks to take advantage of the new Retina Display technology in the iPhone 4.



    A trailer of the upcoming game was released by the company also to give gamers a sneak peak of what is to come, what they could expect from the game. The trailer looks promising, although some of the vehicles lack a few minor details, as well as some of the characters which could have been made to be much more detailed. Knowing these kinds of games lack details in its characters, it is very difficult to understand how even the Retina Display of the Unlocked iPhone 4 will help with the lack of quality in vehicles and models of characters.



    Gangster: West Coast Hustle was very enjoyable and was immensely popular and those who loved the original game are surely looking forward to the new one, however, with such low key details, it might be hard for the company to keep hold of its fan base.

  • Liquidmetal Technologies recently signed with software giant Apple, a licensing deal, worth $11 million. This would allow the California based Liquidmetal Technologies to clear out what was an estimated $11 million worth of debts.


    The transactions were recently revealed through Liquidmetal’s 8-K periodical filing of accounts to U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. It is unclear what Apple's plans with its newly acquired rights to Liquidmetal’s patents and nothing to this effect has been stated officially , but if speculation is to be believed then the word in the market is that Apple intends to apply any new developments to redesign and develop the structure for its new unlocked  iPhone4,  iPad and iPod. Thus it wouldn’t be too surprising if Apple now shells out a slimmer and more compact designs for all its products which should eradicate a rather common complaint related to its iPad that the tablet is built too heavily. Apple may even consider using the patented alloy technology from Liquidmetal to upgrade its Mac construction as well however there is nothing to suggest that it may be a practical move from Apple to do so considering that there are hardly any complaints about the Mac construction. Although a complete and radical revamp of the Mac products cannot be ruled out in which case the electronics market will be set abuzz soon.



    Coming back to the deal itself, the deal still affords the alloy company the freedom to license the products it comes up with to any customers it wishes to for any use related to non consumer electrical use or electronics. The deal seems to have been a rather advantageous one for Apple and opens up a wide range of possibilities when it comes to designs for its products but in all practicality its Liquidmetal Technologies that has 11 million reasons to smile away to the bank!

  • The Android has arrived! Well technically it arrived a long time back when Google officially released it, but the sales report figures now prove that Google Android has indeed arrived. Brace yourselves people, Google Android sales have beaten figures for the Apple unlocked iPhone4 globally. Need a bigger shock still? Google Android sales have also beaten sales figures for the BlackBerry in the United States. The Android invasion is on! The numbers in all practicality are not very surprising, since several research firms confirm that Android sales are going very strong indeed. Android devices according to Gartner have had 10.6 million sets shipped out into the market this quarter, clearly edging out iOS to be placed third overall, which culminates to close to 17.2% of the market share. What inspires awe is the fact that this is in fact a growth of 850% for Android in a matter of one year.


    Android’s incredible sale figures this quarter is dedicated to the fact that it managed availability across several mobile operators, that too on numerous mobile devices. It has been powering pretty high-profile, high end devices like the Samsung unlocked Galaxy S mobile devices and the HTC EVO 4G.


    A report says that Apple sold around 9 million iPhones this quarter, which culminates to 14.2% share of the mobile market. Out of this the unlocked iPhone 4, itself had sold three million sets in a matter of 3 weeks. Apple, despite not having the biggest market share still posts a higher profit from sales because of the higher profit margin per device it holds out. Before we end up too excited with Google Android or with the Apple iPhone, we would do well to note that RIM and Nokia are still on top of the mobile mountain, when it comes to pure market share. Till date Symbian OS is still the most popular platform for smartphones in the world today commanding close to 41.2% share of the market, with BlackBerry posting a share of 18.2%.

  • Chaos Rings, the swashbuckling RPG from Square Enix, made its debut on Apple’s unlocked iPhones4 close to 4 months back. The game was subjected to a tremendous amount of critical acclaim from various outlets. Soon enough Chaos Rings managed to secure a No.1 positioning on the basis of sales in a total 15 countries all over the world. After taking the phone gaming world by storm, this immensely popular creation is now here to conquer the iPad. The game was recently launched for the iPad platform and is receiving critical acclaim aplenty.


    One close look at the iPad version of Chaos Rings reveals that nothing much has changed from the iPhone version that is of course, except for  the inculcation of HD graphics which was expected considering that the iPad has a much bigger screen. The game runs at a resolution of 1024×768.  Remember this game looked magnificent from a graphics point of view on the iPhone itself, upping the graphics on top of it can only add to the “wow factor” that won so much acclaim from all corners of the gaming world.


    Would a new release from Square-Enix game be complete without a subsequent or simultaneous drop in prices for the remaining titles available through the App Store? When Chaos Rings for the iPhone was unleashed a few months ago, we saw a similar change in pricing for the other games from Square-Enix and it seems Square-Enix is bent on keeping the traditional price drop move alive. So if you want a Square-Enix release for cheap, just keep low till their next release and you’ll end up saving a few bucks at least. After all Square-Enix releases don’t come cheap at all. However Chaos Rings is one game we would recommend you don’t wait for a price cut in. Yes, ladies and gentlemen the game is THAT good!
