Google acquires a start-up Bump to improve Android

Google confirmed the acquisition of the start-up “Bump”. Founded in 2008, it publishes an application that makes it easy to share data between two Smartphones by bumping against each other Bump is an editor application that enables the sharing of data between two Smartphones by simply rattling. Google should incorporate all or part of this technology to Android and, or perhaps some Smartphones. The peculiarity of the system is that it does not use NFC. The application detects the sensor information from the Smartphone when "bump" and sends them to a server where an algorithm will analyze and find the same features on the other end. Once identified the two Smartphones, data exchange can take place. Bump was a great success with over 100 million downloads. Last year, the company launched a photo sharing service called Flock. Google has not revealed its plans for the use of these technologies, but it is quite likely to be used either for Android or for some of its services. It may use it as an exclusive feature on the Motorola Smartphones! Bump will continue to operate normally, for the moment and can be read on the blog of the start-up. The amount of the acquisition was not disclosed, but a web source quotes that a sum of between 30 and 60 million.

Sound at your Fingertips

Technology from Disney Research, Pittsburgh has come out with a device which transmits sound through human touch. It is a new invention that enables you to record messages to friends that can be heard with a touch of your finger to the earlobes. With the help of your finger and another person’s ear, together forms a speaker that helps the other person to hear your message. Ishin-Den-Shin so called is named after a Japanese mantra which represents unspoken understanding and speaks into a standard microphone which is then converted into an inaudible signal which tends to get audible when the speaker touches another person’s earlobes. The sound can be transmitted from body to body with the help of any physical contact though it can only be heard by the person whose earlobe is touched and this technology won the honors at Ars Electronica Festival in Linz, Austria. This system depends on a special microphone created by Disney Research engineers, wherein the sound is recorded and rendered into a high voltage, low current and in an inaudible signal. The sound can only be heard when someone holding the microphone touches the fingers to another person’s ears. The sound can also move through multiple bodies if the person A holding the microphone touches person B’s shoulder while at the same time person C’s ear for the sound to be transmitted to the person C.

 Human bodies are capable of transmitting sound as electrical signals and using the human body to conduct sound is becoming common in the recent years. One of the most popular methods is the bone conduction which brings sound directly to the inner ear through bones in the skull and which is found in some head phones enabling hearing aids and in Google’s Glass. The system used by Disney Research is an electrostatic field which forms around the speaker’s skin and creates a vibration when it comes in contact with the person’s earlobe. The Ishin-Den-Shin system, which includes a hand held microphone, is connected to a computer. It operates when the speaker speaks into the microphone and the computer changes the sound into looped recording. This recording is then converted into high voltage, low current inaudible signal, which flows into the thin wires connected to the interior of the microphone. The looped inaudible signal then creates a modulated electrostatic field thus producing a tiny vibration as the fingers touch the ear, forming a speaker. The Ishin-Den-Shin system can be used for everyday activities for interactive sound devices without the need of any special instrument. It could help to explore new avenues for inter personal communication and can be used to transfer sound from one person to another with the use of our bodies which has the capabilities of a conductor of sound

Travel on Magnetic Levitation (MagLev) Train over 500km / h

Are you dreamed of boarding a floating train, then you have to go to Japan now! Yes, The Japanese have done it! Known as JR Maglev, the magnetic levitation vehicle has successful in their last test, the attain an impressive speed of 500 km / h! The Central Japan Railway Company has revived their test maglev train. Currently, the longest and fastest in the world, JR Maglev (abbreviation for magnetic levitation) was tested on a line for about 42 kilometers. The machine has reached a speed of nearly 500 kilometers per hour. After five successive test stops and some project years, Japanese finally begin to build a magnetic line connecting the two cities Nogoya and Tokyo. A journey of about 285 kilometers, which normally lasts 95 minutes and with this high-speed train, will be reduced to 40 minutes by 2027. For comparison, the Amtraks Acela Express makes the journey from Boston to New York takes about 3 hours and 40 minutes to cover the 338 kilometers. A distance that can be traveled less than an hour by JR Maglev. By 2045, JR Central hopes to expand the line to Osaka, which will reduce the number of passengers who frequently take flights between the two cities. When it is built, the magnetic line reread Tokyo airport to train at low speed Nagoya. The latter part of other rail systems that use magnetic rails to reduce friction problems but also offer more stability.

While the Japanese magnetic process promises an impressive technology, it still reins some concern on the part of the Japanese people who think that the machine is not large enough to support its weight. By itself, the extension of the line up to Nagoya will cost between 52 and 90 billion, mainly because of the mountainous landscape and towns that make it difficult to achieve straight rails. According to the Bloomberg financial group, there is a good chance that the building faces significant delays. Fortunately, JR Central is a highly profitable business with a history that allowed making big profits and thanks to its current high-speed trains. The company had cash of $ 2.95 billion according to their latest financial report. With a number of loan and bond that can easily allow the financing of an infrastructure project of this magnitude. It will take a little longer to appear before the floating trains that could change the way we travel and allow us to move much faster. now compatible with OAuth and IMAP

Apple announces 'Touch ID' for iPhone 5S

The emergence of a fingerprint reader allows the new Apple Smartphone to improve its security. This is the main and almost the only real innovation of the iPhone 5s by adding a fingerprint reader, which is quietly inserted into the new Home button on the device. “Touch ID” which will unlock your Smartphone by simply waving your thumb to the button without pressing. The user can also validate his purchases on the App Store and iTunes but not elsewhere, since this iPhone does not support NFC. It is also an additional protection against theft or false manipulations. But it is the business that is referred to this component. We know employees use more and more of their personal devices for work tasks, connect to their corporate network, this is the BYOD (bring your own device) trend. The iPhone is obviously well placed in this field, but IT managers who need to manage this new type of fleets sometimes regret the lack of security of the terminal, especially when faced with competing solutions.

With Touch ID, Apple clearly meets this requirement of securing BYOD with a powerful biometric solution that could bury those pesky passwords. Powerful because Apple says the A7 chip in the terminal, a 64- bit processor, is especially dedicated to the management and the strength of the encryption. The iPhone can also now boast of offering two-factor authentication. The most riding on the security companies can indeed impose fingerprint reading AND a password to unlock the device. So the apple climbs its upscale terminal to a new level of security and intends to strengthen its presence in business when BlackBerry is sinking. As for Android, it does not really favor with CIOs.

 It is also necessary that its technology is really developed. Biometrics is a technology and Touch -sensitive ID must demonstrate its reliability in a professional sense. According to the first taken in hand, the Touch ID configuration takes only 30 seconds. The function will also demonstrate its robustness against attacks. Because these technologies are fragile; it will be recalled that the facial recognition of Android 4.0 was diverted in two shots ladle. Again, with the help of the chip, Apple promises a maximum shielding. The issue of databases generated by Touch ID also raises questions. Where and how these data will be stored? Apple ensures that they will not be stored in the cloud.

When the gel layers are traversed by an electric signal, the rubber disc shrinks and expands successively, and very quickly. This vibratory movement then emits high frequency sounds in the same way as would a speaker can do. This transparent model can reproduce all the sounds in the audible range of human hearing, i.e. 20 Hz to 20 kHz, as shown in this video. They are not yet to come into your living room next to equip a stereo. Jeong- Yun Sun and colleagues at SEAS (Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences) built this prototype primarily as a technology demonstrator. Their goal is to show that it is possible to transit electric charges and therefore produce a stream of pulses by using not by electrons as usual, but the ions. This experience of Harvard University, Massachusetts is a major step in the development of the technology of ionic conduction. Indeed, researchers have managed the feat twice to develop a device that not only withstand high voltages, but also is able to change its structure very quickly.

The ions are much heavier than electrons and bulky chemical species, and therefore they move more slowly. Compared to conventional electrical conductors, ion conductors have several advantages. First, they can stretch to several times their length without changing their resistivity. Then their transparency opens the door for many optical applications. Finally, they are biocompatible, making them prime candidates for the implementation of artificial skin or muscles. Among other applications, the researchers believe such a high transparent speaker glued directly on a TV screen, Smartphone or tablet, and directly emit sound from the entire surface of the device. Such a device attached to the windows of an apartment could be used to actively cancel sound from outside. But researchers are also thinking of glasses able to adapt their length or even the “soft machines."

Acer Aspire S7 Ultrabook gets updated!

Acer's Haswell update for the particularly thin Aspire S7 comes simultaneously with a change of display technology. In addition, Acer S7 is a one of the best Ultra books available in the market. Acer updated its top Ultra book, in addition to the CPU upgrade to a Core i7 - 4500U, which improves the battery life of the notebook by 30 percent according to Acer; there is also a new IPS panel. Acer now installed a very high resolution display with 2,560 x 1,440 pixels at a screen diagonal of 13 inches. Acer also promises that the fan design also very now quieter. Acer improves the IPS display of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels Does not change the rest of the equipment. It remains in fast RAID 0 SSD systems with 256 GB of memory, 8 GB of RAM and the weight of 1.3 kg. There is still a change in the S7. The 11- inch model of the laptop has been discontinued. There will be no more Haswell update for this model. It was characterized by a very thin and light design. Acer's new Aspire S7 with 13 -inch display will come on the market in November 2013. It is equipped with the same 8.1 and Windows will have a starting price of 1,600 Euros. So it's slightly more expensive than the first versions of the Aspire S7. Let us hope the extra costs of few hundred Euros and includes a better service.

LG to launch 8.3-inch G Pad tablet at IFA 2013

LG presented the new Android tablet 8.3 inch LG at IFA, and is impressed by the quality of its full HD screen and slim design. Announced earlier this week, the LG G Pad 8.3 inch has not received much attention. We had to wait to discover the IFA for the first returns begin to happen. They are unanimously enthusiastic, citing a tablet to rival to the two references that are mini iPad and the new Nexus 7. For starters, its compact design (8.3 mm thick, 12.6 cm wide) and weight (338 grams) make, according to testers, it is also easy gripping a 7-inch tablet. Enthusiasm for the quality of the screen, the first of this size to be displayed in full HD 1920x1200 pixels. Very good return for your investment as the performance of the tablet, and torque processor (Snapdragon 600 quadruple heart 1.7 GHz) - RAM 2 GB provides good comfort. The internal storage of 16 GB can be expanded via a microSD card. There is QPair application to connect to a Smartphone via Bluetooth to receive text messages and make calls. That compensates for the lack of a 3G version. In fact, the only downside is the presence of Android 4.2.2 instead of the latest version 4.3. We hope soon they will correct this failure in their next update. LG G pad 8.3  will arrive soon and could be one of the best sellers of this season, provided that its price has not been disclosed,but it  is sufficiently competitive.

Wacom Cintiq 13HD

With the graphics tablet from Wacom Cintiq 13HD we can quickly and precisely edit photos. And can Exempt persons with wind-blown hair on photos, Reflective surfaces in matt structures transform. With the mouse that works even with the Wacom Cintiq 13HD, it was in the test but much more accurate and much faster. The 13 inch wide Cintiq is no ordinary Windows or Android tablet; it shows the exact contents of a PC monitor connected to it in such an open image with Photoshop. He can, however, use it as a second monitor for enlarged work surface for images. The screen displays photos and graphics in Full HD with 1920x1080 pixels. To make some color adjustments to an image region, the user can use the stylus. Together with the Wacom pen provides ten easy options with pen. For example, you can draw thick or thin lines of various measures with the pen. And the pen also determines how strong the user presses on the tablet. So with the pressure you can create strong and fine lines. According to the manufacturer the pin determined up to 2,048 levels of pressure. And also the pen just reverses and serves as an eraser. With the tablet you can create or customize fonts and drawings by following the illustration. This works like a sheet of paper: Unlike the drawing with the mouse, the Cintiq brings natural hand movements faithfully to the screen. The Wacom Cintiq works a lot easier. It works exactly and saves a lot of time - but it is damn expensive.

IBM Strikes Gold with $1 Billion Cloud Computing Deal

Few companies have been able to strike as huge a contract as IBM just did with the Department of the Interior. With a $1 billion ten-year contract, IBM has agreed to assist in the transition of the department's networks to a cloud computing infrastructure. IBM, along with nine other companies, was selected to assist with this tremendous endeavor. Drawing on the success of IBM's data storage practices, the strength of its database solutions, its ability to host websites, and many other factors, the Department of the Interior is hoping that this contract will help them with cost-saving measures while providing a secure solution for its ever-growing network of computers and devices.

IBM has a long history of providing technological and networking solutions for federal and state government contracts. With their recent success in the emergence of the cloud computing market, IBM has been at the forefront of development of new services and security in cloud computing. As a result, investors and agencies are all flocking to IBM to assist in the transition from traditional networks to more versatile and secure cloud-based solutions.

The $1 billion contract over ten years is only part of the Department of the Interior’s massive IT budget, which allocates nearly $1 billion a year for the department’s IT needs. With sixteen agencies reporting to the department that manage everything from national parks to relationships with Native American tribes, the department has a wide array of needs. Due to IBM's diverse offerings and portfolio of cloud-based solutions, the transition to the cloud is expected to save the department a tremendous amount of money as it hopes to close hundreds of data centers across the country.

In addition to the Department of the Interior, the agreement with IBM states that other departments may further utilize cloud-based solutions down the road. IBM and the other contractors hope that this contract is only one of many to come as the government seeks to cut down on its expenses and transition its services to the cloud.

So what does this mean for IBM? As this is the company's largest cloud-based contract with US government to date, IBM will continue to expand its portfolio of cloud-based solutions. In addition, IBM, along with all of the other companies included in the contract, will gain a competitive advantage in the highly competitive cloud services market. As technology analysts have seen in recent months, any edge in this market will give companies the potential for huge profits as the industry continues to balloon.

Industry analysts have predicted that the growth of the cloud computing industry has only just started. With large contracts like this one from the Department of the Interior, cloud-based service providers are expecting to see profits and contracts come streaming in during the next few years. The transition from local networks to cloud-based services on a web host will need to be performed by companies with experience. Few companies have as much experience in a wide variety of industries as IBM. This contract could only be the tip of the iceberg in potential profits for one of the oldest computing companies in the world.

New Sony FDR- AX1 Announced

While the IBC show video opens in Amsterdam; Sony has announced a new camera FDR- AX1, which will be available in late October. This is the first mainstream 4K camera from Sony; it can shoot images with a resolution up to 3840 x 2160 pixels (QFHD). The design of the FDR- AX1 is not new: it is similar to that of the Sony HDR- AX200. It is equipped with a "home" CMOS sensor Exmor R “back-lit” 1/2, 3 inch 12MP, including 8.3 effective. Its goal G Lens 29.5 to 590 mm (20x, f / 1.63 to 3.4) is stabilized and has 3 ND filters. 3 rings to make settings for zoom, focus and iris and are independent to each other. In addition to a microphone, the FDR- AX1 has two audio connectors XLR professional format. 4K videos are saved on expensive XQD cards, a recent XQD format provides efficient transfer rate and was previously used by the Nikon D4. The FDR- AX1 has two locations in this format. Sony want to sell like hotcakes its 4K screens , rather aggressively positioned in terms of quality and price against their Chinese and Korean competitors , it must justify its use until the 4K TV broadcasts becoming widespread.

 All Sony ecosystems are called upon to promote 4K, as there was little 3D, from cloud services PlayMemories until the PS4. Some choices Sony for its FDR- AX1 are sometimes a bit surprising for a camera that still costs 4 € 499.01. For example it uses the codec XAVC S placed in a MPEG4- AVC / H.264 container. It is a variant of the more compressed the XAVC/H264 Level version 5.2 codec. More bad news for users who want to go further than holiday movies on YouTube, the colors are sampled 4:2:0. Without going to a 4:4:4 coding or even RAW images, 4:2:2 would have left a significant latitude for color correction, calibration, clipping paths and masks, and other special effects and overlays on " green funds".

The FDR- AX1 is equipped with a single sensor of small size. In the same price range or less, many Full HD models competing not only have 3 sensors, and their size is larger. They record their video with 4:2:2 colors sampling, better than 4:2:0 solution. Sony seems to recommend a minimum of 4 lux for 4K images is more light than most HD cameras require ( the AX200 , very close to the AX1 requires only 1.5 Lux) and that the risk of require users to frequently use other extra light source. Sony has announced an update to make it compatible with the latest HDMI version 2.0 HDMI. The HDMI 2.0 will see a 4K video on a TV at 60 frames / s with a single HDMI cable. In addition, this update adds compatibility with the AVCHD codec and will also use SD cards for 1080p video.

The FDR- AX1 seems quite clear heat, after initial tests published on the Net. The XQD cards would be hot when removed from the camera. Similarly, AX1 which manages large data flows, processes and compresses, heat up quickly despite the internal fan which it is equipped. This also may be a concern for the sound by the internal microphone of the camera emits noise. This should not pose any problems to professional users, resorting instead to external microphones for their shots, but for the general public or semi pro users, high heat and fan trying to remedy it may hinder the sound made with the built-in microphone on the camera.

Adobe Announces Creative Cloud bundle

Canon PowerShot SX510 HS

Small, light, great zoom range with wireless data transfer via WLAN module is the new Canon PowerShot SX510 HS Bridge Camera. Despite 30x zoom, the PowerShot SX510 HS is Canon is in a compact housing. The Canon SX510 HS is a very light bridge camera with 350 grams. The operation is similar to its predecessor. That is about a dial on the surface, the photographer has access to full and half automatics or manual adjustment. On the back of the camera, there are buttons for shortcuts and other settings via a thumbwheel. Newly added is a wireless module that enables wireless transmission of photo and video material on PCs, tablets and Smartphones. If a Smartphone is connected to the camera, you also have the option to combine GPS data with the photos. With the 30- times zoom, the SX510 HS covers a focal length range 24-720 mm. Optical image stabilization ensures sharp images at long focal lengths. The light intensity is from 1:3.4 to 1:5.8, with values in the range of comparable cameras.

A highlight of the camera is its macro mode that allows you to zoom closer than an inch to the subject. When the number of pixels Canon has dared to take a bold step; instead of loading more and more pixels onto the sensor, the manufacturer has reduced the number from 16 megapixels to twelve at constant sensor size, thereby reducing the image noise when shooting under low light conditions. Video records in Full HD quality with stereo sound on. The camera has a slow motion mode and effect filters such as black and white, miniature and fisheye. A DIGIC 4 processor brings the camera up to maximum Speed. In the sequential mode, the SX510 HS shoots 3.8 shots per second at the highest resolution. Reduce the resolution to three megapixels, the number increased to 10.5 frames per second. One advantage of the new Canon is the ECO mode. This power -saving setting ensures that the camera according to the manufacturer with a battery keeps landing by about one-third longer. The Canon SX510 HS is available now at a price of 329 Euros.

Apple Airport Express

Apple Airport Express offers Wi-Fi and AirPlay at an affordable price. For many users, the Airport Express base station is a simple solution for wireless surfing and streaming on your home network. The Big Apple stores in the United States have fewer Airport Express copies in stock. Also, the retail chain Best Buy is no longer able to deliver, according to Apple Insider news. In both cases, customers put off by pointing to a delayed order. The online store of Apple, meanwhile, still shows a delivery time of 24 hours. Usually an increasing scarcity of a particular item indicates the end of each model. Since Apple has not revised the current version of the small wireless station for over a year, is actually expected to happen soon. As a fresh function including support for the new 802.11ac standard is feasible, since Apple already supports this with the current series of the MacBook Air and the Great Airport Extreme wireless station has been upgraded accordingly. According to Apple, data rates of up to 1.3 gigabits per second are possible thanks to the faster transmission.

Facebook corrects a flaw that allowed removing the photos of other users

Facebook has paid $ 12,500 to a security researcher in India for the discovery of a flaw that allows an attacker, through the identification of a photo and easily delete a photo. Unlike Palestinian hacker Khalil Shreateh, Arul Kumar has received a reward, 12,500 dollars, from Facebook to the discovery and disclosure of a security lapse on the site. The security researcher has discovered on the social network, and more specifically in the setup menus (Support Dashboard), a critical bug. The attack was done from the Facebook menu to send a request to withdraw a photograph published on the social network. These requests can be sent to Facebook or directly to the owner of the image. The process automatically generates a link, which if clicked then automatically generates the suppression of the image. Arul Kumar had found a way to send the request to another recipient and could remove at will and photos on the social network. For this, the attacker needed the id of the photo and the user ID (available on the Facebook Graph). The flaw in it has been corrected by Facebook's security team, and therefore rewarded Arul Kumar.
