  • During last weekend’s Disrupt SF Hackathon events, 147 teams had 24 hours to design, build, test and present their products to judges. Only three teams had the chance to demo their projects in front of the crowd. The first place team was awarded a $5,000 grand prize.


    Techcrunch, the sponsor of the event, invited hardware hackers to “Build toys, robots, Arduino cases, or whatever you want and enter the Disrupt Hackathon as an inaugural hardware hacker. We dare you.” 400 hackers took TechCrunch up on their challenge.


    While the Sirious Margarita Maker “a highly complex system that allows you to tell Siri to make you a margarita, and the Memstash app “that helps you memorize anything” gave the winners a run for their money, three other teams beat them and everyone else out of the top prize.


    First Prize: Livebolt


    Livebolt is a cloud-based identity management system. It consists of a metal block that slides on the back of a physical lock. The block responds to an order from an iPhone app. Once a user passes authentication, the iPhone app can authorize the metal block to lock or unlock the user's door.


    Runner-up #1: Autopus


    Autopus is an app that lets sellers on sites like Craigslist to conduct auctions on their own listings. As bids are placed on their stuff, sellers gets notified and can monitor activity in almost real-time.


    Runner-up #2: HeatData


    HeatData provides a way to track the gestures of mobile website users. Knowing how users interact with pages helps vendors determine how to improve the design and UI for their mobile app.


    Many of the other teams didn’t go home empty handed. Sponsors like AT&T, Evernote, dotCloud, Ford, Locu, Microsoft Bizspark, Dropbox, New Relic, Pearson, Qualcomm Innovation Center, Qualcomm Labs, SAP HANA, SkyDrive, TokBox, Twilio, and Zypr all awarded prizes to the teams that made the best use of their services.


    TechCrunch Disrupt is one of the most anticipated technology conferences of the year, and it's underway this week through Wednesday.


    Hold onto your smartphones, tablets and any other device with a broadband connection. There's a lot of innovation going on out there.

  • Flipboard's new motivation
    Posted on September 7, 2012 by kduggan


    There’s no doubt that Flipboard, the iPad app that displays content from Facebook (FB), Twitter, magazines, and newspapers in a consolidated interface, made a huge splash two years ago. Its design became a techie and fan favorite. For one thing, just like reading a magazine, you could turn pages with the swipe of a finger. Apple named it the best iPad app of 2010. As of July, 20 million users had signed up.


    Now comes the next hurdle for the company. Just like Facebook, Flipboard cannot live on investor funds alone. It has to figure out how to make money through advertising. Co-founder and CEO Mike McCue has been pitching to major brands that ads on Flipboard generate more revenue for advertisers than the tired old banner ads on websites and mobile apps. Flipboard’s design requires readers to engage with an ad as they swipe to turn pages. McCue’s position is that people are ignoring the ads running down the right panel on a website. A Flipboard ad is more like a full-page print ad. In order to get to a magazine's stories, you have to flip through the pages.


    Flipboard is targeting their efforts on magazines like Vogue and Elle whose readers prefer the glossy, full-screen ads typical of those magazines. To encourage companies to advertise through Flipboard and get in front of the readers of these publications, ads of similar quality to those in the print versions are showing up in the Flipboard portfolio. Ads from companies like Verizon, Levi’s, and Universal Pictures are appearing within articles of publications like Vanity Fair and tech websites like Engadget and GigaOM. “They have figured out a way to make print ads look beautiful in a digital environment,” says Alan Cohen, OMD USA’s CEO.


    What do you think? Is Flipboard on the right track with their advertising strategy? The bottom line is whether the print ad format will cause people to buy their advertisers’ products. Would these kinds of ads make you want to go out and spend money any more than a banner ad would? Let us know!

  • Now we know a few more details about Nokia’s new Lumia 920 and Lumia 820 phones. The big unveiling took place yesterday in New York City, and what we saw was pretty impressive.


    The Lumia makes a big splash with its accessories. It seems that Nokia is determined to pioneer the cause of the wireless charging station.


    The Lumia 920 and 820 both incorporate Qi (pronounced “chee”) tech for wireless charging (an option with the Lumia 820.) Rather than connecting to a dock, all that’s needed to charge one of the phones is to place it on top of a (plugged in) pad. We’d already heard rumor about the design of the wireless charging pad, and what Nokia unveiled was actually three different styles.


    The basic dock that looks like the same type of design as the phone case. It’s streamlined and shiny, and comes in a few bright color choices – red, blue, white, black and yellow.


    The Fatboy Recharge Pillow is a puffy base that looks like a pillow. Its length and width extend at least one inch beyond the edges of the phone when it’s centered on the Pillow. The color choices are the same bright hues as those for the basic dock.


    The JBL PowerUp Charging Speaker is definitely the star of the group. The charging stand includes an NFC chip that will trigger an app launch when you place it in the dock. Just put the smartphone on the stand where it will charge and automatically open your music player or alarm clock. The stand is equipped with high-quality audio speakers and a retro style. Its color choices are black, gray and blue.


    In addition, Nokia said it has made deals with Virgin Atlantic and Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf to have charging stations in various public locations. Eventually, Nokia wants to see charging stations in public places all over the world.


    Nokia is part of the Wireless Power Consortium. One of the Consortium’s goals is to build a true wireless-charging network with open standards. Qi is part of that design ethic. If your device is equipped for Qi wireless, you'll be able to charge it on any charging base that uses the Qi wireless charging standard.


    No word on pricing or launch date for either phone.

  • What to expect from Apple's new iPhone
    Posted on September 5, 2012 by kduggan


    Name: You can almost bet the farm that the new name will be iPhone 5. The only other contender would be the “New iPhone”, following in the tradition of the “New iPad.”


    Design: A slimmer, longer, but not as wide, case. A two-toned color scheme. Possibly a metal back like the original iPhone.


    Screen: A four-inch screen with a different aspect ratio than the 4S. A 640x1,136-pixel-resolution screen would allow an extra row of icons on the home screen. This would provide apps with extra screen space above the virtual keyboard, and a better fix for HD videos in landscape mode.


    Dock connector:  A completely new 8-pin connector that will take up less space than the old 30-pin that’s been in use forever. The downside of losing that 30-pin dust collector - the old accessories and cables will be obsolete. Let’s hope Apple provides an adapter.


    Connectivity: 4G LTE has got to be a certainty. Apple did it for the New iPad, and lack of 4G LTE wireless has been a big beef of even the most loyal Apple fans.


    Processor: A couple of alternatives here. A quad-core A6 processor be a more advanced CPU than what's in the third-gen iPad’s A5X processor (with a dual-core CPU and quad-core graphics). The new iPhone might possibly have a smaller A5X processor with the same power but more compact design.


    iOS 6: Many older Apple devices will get the iOS 6 upgrade, but Apple has also indicated that a few features like the new Maps app’s turn-by-turn navigation will only be available on the latest iPhone and iPad models.


    What the iPhone 5 probably won’t have:


    • NFC might not be possible with the slimness of the case
    • Expect only minor camera upgrades. Apple has made significant camera improvements in the last three iPhone models. Look for smaller tweaks like multiburst or a better flash.

    Other rumors have the iPad Mini or new iPods making their debuts alongside the iPhone 5. Don’t bet on it.  Apple will want to get as much mileage out of the buzz with multiple new product announcements. The latest talk on the street has an iPhone launch in September, and an iPad Mini launch in October.

  • A couple of weeks ago a jury agreed with Apple in their latest lawsuit against Samsung, awarding Apple over $1 billion supporting its claim that Samsung infringed on their patents in the design of eight Samsung mobile phones and one tablet. But, there is method to Apple’s madness, and it isn’t putting Samsung out of business.


    What this verdict does give Apple is the upper hand in “negotiations” that are being conducted through the courts all over the world. Apple’s opponents include five of their largest competitors in the global war for smartphone and tablet dominance. It’s not just Apple claiming patent violations. Most of the mobile behemoths are fighting amongst themselves over license agreements.


    Apple big beef with its device-making rivals like Samsung, it that they use the Android operating system that Google gives away for free. According to Bloomberg Industries, Android accounts for about 60 percent of the mobile market, three times as large as Apple’s iOS. The big prize Apple has its sights on is having the dominant operating system in the device market. The problem many consumers, app designers and device manufacturers should have with Apple’s OS is that it’s a closed-garden operating system while Google’s (and Microsoft’s) is an open system. This means that Apple controls everything. (This was a point that Steve Jobs was always fanatical about.)


    U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh will probably deny a request by Samsung to throw out the verdict. Samsung’s lawyers will file an appeal in a higher court.


    Koh will still have to decide whether to issue an injunction blocking the sale in the U.S. of the nine Samsung devices in the latest lawsuit. If she decides in favor of Apple, Samsung will have to make some design changes, eliminating the offending features or pull them from the market. Samsung probably won’t expend too much effort on this since the nine devices are older ones, and they can still sell them outside the U.S. The hit to their bottom line should be minimal.


    Once the competitors get some legal satisfaction, they’ll make their financial deals over supplying products and components to one another. Even Apple will play nice. (Apple is Samsung’s biggest customer for mobile-device components).In the meantime, the companies are still doing business as usual with one another while they keep their lawyers busy in court.


    Telecom companies and consumers aren’t going to put up with a clearing out of the competition by Apple. Many of us like Android devices like Samsung’s, and Microsoft’s Windows Phone OS is a welcome addition to the competition. Bottom line: what ultimately happens from all this bickering is up to us.

  • Think you’re pretty good with an iPad? Can you draw like this? An 84 year-old woman created this incredible self-portrait in the first thirty minutes of having an iPad in her hands.


    According to her grandson’s Reddit thread, “She’s 84 and never had a tablet, and wanted it for ‘art’.”


    As his story goes, he installed the app ArtRage and left his grandmother for thirty minutes. When he came back, she had created this work of art. The image was posted to Reddit and quickly shot to the front page.

  • The iPhone 5 release is only weeks away, and Apple is already planning for turnover. If you’re willing to hand over your old iPhone 4S when it releases the new 5, Apple will give you a $345 Apple gift card.


    Through its Reuse and Recycling program, Apple plans to offer the gift cards in exchange the older model. Whether or not you are eligible for the trade depends on the condition of your 4S.


    The first step in determining whether you’ve got a phone that Apple wants is to get an evaluation from Apple’s online wizard. The wizard lets you select the model, color and condition of your iPhone 4S then it will crank out an estimated value of the device. Obviously, scratches, water damage, or other flaws will diminish the value of your phone.


    Their Reuse and Recycling program applies to other Apple devices, including iPads, Macs and even PC computers. The program has you send in your device to Apple for assessment. They’ll determine the exchange value and get back to you. If they say it’s not eligible for reimbursement, you can still turn your device over to Apple for recycling.


    Gift cards can be used at any Apple retail or online store. Although you still have to shell out the money for the iPhone 5, this is a decent way to offset the cost of all the extras you will absolutely have to have for your new device.


    Just for comparison, vendors on online shopping sites like eBay have iPhone 4S inventory. Some listings show the device going upwards of $500.

  • Finally some pictures have surfaced with close-ups of a device that might be the next generation of Nokia phones.Up till now, we’ve only had leaked pictures, component images and patent application drawings to fuel speculation about what Nokia’s very unique Windows Phone 8 might look like.


    The phone in the pics has a boxy design, like the shape of a deck of cards. One of my first thoughts: if you aren't connected by Bluetooth or a headset, the edges might make it tiring to hold for a long period of time.


    The views also show elongated speaker grilles down one whole side. The phone is  supposed to feature DTS sound - multichannel audio technology that is known for surround sound formats. The poor quality of speaker sound in portable devices today is almost as big a deal as battery life. DTS could mean a big leap forward in the audio experience. From a design standpoint, we can't imagine speakers extended the whole length of the handset. Maybe it's just for effect.


    There's a lot that pictures can't tell. So the rumors of specs like a quad-core SoC, 12-megapixel camera and 4.5-inch HD screen should be taken with a big grain of salt.


    Of course, this is all just a guess at whether these models are sourced from Nokia or rendered from legitimate hardware images or specs, but they are interesting. Maybe, we'll hear more on September 5th when Nokia and Microsoft hold their press event.



    No matter what, a boxy design like this would be a real departure from the Apple, HTC and Samsung smooth, rounder edged and stylized cases we love right now. Windows 8 or not, I'd feel like Nokia's new device is drawing attention to my hand the way my eyes can't help but notice to a Nissan Cube on the street.

  • Just in case you haven’t sprung for the Galaxy S III, extended your contract for another 2 years to get that HTC One X, or aren’t a Apple loyalist, you might be glad to hear that we’ll finally be getting the official word on Motorola’s new Droid RAZR M 4G LTE next week – September 5th to be exact.



    If even that’s too far away, the specs have been leaked. This looks like a pretty sweet phone.


    • 4.3-inch, 960 x 540 pixel, Super AMOLED Advanced display
    • 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor
    • 8 GB of storage
    • 1 GB of RAM
    • 8-megapixel rear camera and a 3-megapixel one on the front
    • Gorilla Glass 2 display glass
    • Kevlar-reinforced back
    • Virtual navigation buttons at the bottom of the screen
    • MicroSD expansion
    • Wi-Fi
    • Bluetooth
    • GPS


    NFC, GSM / UMTS / HSPA+ global roaming are on board and the whole package will be powered by Android 4.0 - Ice Cream Sandwich


    No word yet on price and availability. It would have been nice to hear about the battery, too, but September 5th isn’t far away. If you’ve got a purchase decision to make, you might want to hold off a week.
