FIREFOX OS

FIREFOX OS

iOS and Android are great, but they each have their own rules and policies that certainly inhibit the creative efforts of developers. Mozilla has since decided to build a newmobile operating system from scratch, one that will focus on true openness, freedom and user choice. It’s Firefox OS. Firefox OS is built on Gonk, Gecko and Gaia software layers – for the rest of us, it means it is built on open source, and it carries web technologies such as HTML5 and CSS3. Developers can create and debut web apps without the blockade of requirements set by app stores, and users could even customize the OS based on their needs. Currently the OS has made its debut on Android-compatible phones, and the impression so far, is great. You can use the OS to do essential tasks you do on iOS or Android: calling friends, browsing web, taking photos, playing games, they are all possible on Firefox OS, set to rock the smartphone market.

Look! A PC On A Stick!

Look! A PC On A Stick!

Gadgets CES Intel Look! A PC On A Stick! You can get pretty much anything on a stick. You can actually, and I kid you not, get fried butter on a stick. And soon, thanks to Intel, you can even get a full, Windows 8.1 PC on a stick. The Windows 8.1-based Compute Stick contains a quad-core Atom processor, 32 gigabytes of storage, 2 gigabytes of RAM, and wi-fi and Bluetooth support. It will retail for $149, early this year. A separate Linux version will contain half the RAM, a third of the storage, and will sell for a reduced $89.   source:   TechCrunch...
PC Shipments Are Slowly Recovering, Says Gartner

PC Shipments Are Slowly Recovering, Says Gartner

Over the past two years, the growing popularity of mobile devices has eaten into PC sales. A new report by Gartner, however, shows that shipments may continue to enjoy a very slow but steady uptick this year as tablet sales hit a peak. The research firm found that worldwide PC shipments in the fourth quarter of 2014 grew one percent year-over-year, the first increase since 2012. Shipment volumes growth, however, differed dramatically from region to region. For example, in the U.S., PC shipments in 4Q2014 increased 13.1 percent year-over-year, the fastest increase in four years, thanks to holiday purchases. Inexpensive laptops (about $200 to $300), thin and light notebooks, and laptops with a detachable screen helped drive growth. Meanwhile, in the Europe, the Middle East, and Africa (EMEA), 4Q2014 shipment volumes grew a relatively slim 2.8 percent to 26.5 million units. The increase was due in large part by Western European consumers, who purchased low price notebooks, as well as tablet-laptop combos. Shipments in the Asia-Pacific also grew more slowly than in the U.S., increasing two percent to 26.6 million units in 4Q2014. Buyers in those markets still preferred to purchase smartphones or tablets instead of investing in a laptop or desktop computer. “Users here are more focused on content consumption or on specific tasks where functions can be handled by a smartphone. Coupled with limited disposable income, these buyers are delaying PC purchases if they do not see a need, therefore making the consumer market more lackluster than it used to be,” wrote Gartner principal analyst Mikako Kitagawa. Lenovo continued to be the number one PC maker in...
Nintendo’s New 3DS XL Is Heading To The U.S. February 13 For $200

Nintendo’s New 3DS XL Is Heading To The U.S. February 13 For $200

Nintendo has revealed that it will bring the new version of the 3DS XL to the U.S. on February 13, following its launch of the redesigned hardware in Japan last year. The new version features a second analog stick, as well as two new shoulder triggers, microSD and NFC support. It also has improvements to the 3D viewing system that makes for better viewing from a range of angles, meaning the so-called ‘sweet spot’ for seeing the glassessless 3D effect on the upper screen is much bigger than before. The new version of the Nintendo 3DS XL has been reviewed positively by many who’ve had access to the original Japanese version, but so far games that support the new buttons are limited. Nintendo also announced today that a system update for the new 3DS XL model will activate Amiibo support, meaning you’ll be able to use Nintendo’s new figurines with in-game interactive features with the system, starting with Smash Bros. for 3DS, and coming soon to the new Ace Combat game launching alongside the new system on February 13. Nintendo specifically didn’t mention anything about a North American launch of the New 3DS, which offers the same C-stick analog controller, shoulder buttons and other features but on a form factor with proportions of the original 3DS (smaller than the XL). The 3DS XL also apparently won’t ship with an AC adapter in the box, based on the assumption many will already have this accessory from previous system purchases. The 3DS XL will also be available in a bundle with Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate on Feb. 13, which is a...
