Apple company is getting interested on WiTricity's wireless electricity systems.

A week ago, Apple was said to be planning a new way of charging their next-generation iPhone. Now, it seems that the company found the best source, which can help them in implementing their plans. The WiTricity, a company that develops such wireless electricity, has been the target of most brands including Apple. The scientists of WiTricity was known for showing off a new method of transferring energy even with larger distances.

Several months ago, Apple introduced an international patent application called “Wireless power utilization in a local computing environment”. The said application, which they based from the original paper published by the MIT researchers, highlights some vital details regarding the new technology.

Apple describes that through using the wireless electricity, people can charge their iPhone and iPad even with 1 meter distance from their computers. “…by doing away with clumsy and annoying cables and eliminating the need to replace batteries, an easy to use and efficient local computing environment can be provided to the user”, the company stated.

Transmit videos through your glasses

Written on June 06, 2011 by R. Depp

Comments Off

Developers at ZionEyez in Seattle are working on Eyez, a pair of glasses with a tiny embedded video camera that can continuously record everything you see in 720p. The video can then be broadcasted wirelessly to social media sites like Facebook, for the world to see.

ZionEyez is describing Eyez as “a new revolution in social media technology,” enabling some exhibitionistic gadget lover to wear these video-shooting glasses that transmit the images via Bluetooth to an Eyez app on an iPhone or any Android device. The video would then be streamed through WiFi networks to video sites online, where it could all be viewed live.

The 8GB flash memory as well as a mini-USB port allows users to record the goings-on and then transfer them to a computer for editing and later transmission.

Here is another fascinating gadget which could turn into an interesting performance-art project. It won’t be long till everyone will record video of everything they do every day, and stream it live on the web.

Samsung Requests Apple to Provide Samples of Upcoming iPhone and iPad

Written on May 30, 2011 by Japhet Writ

Comments Off

After Apple filed a copyright infringement lawsuit against Samsung last month, the latter want to make sure that it won't happen again by requesting a sample of the big fruit's upcoming devices.

After Apple filed a copyright infringement lawsuit against Samsung last month, the latter’s legal team requested the Cupertino-based company to hand over next-generation versions of the iPhone and iPad by June 17, 2011. This is done to make sure that Samsung’s own future devices will not be subjected to the same lawsuit that it’s currently facing. The motion, filed last Friday at San Jose, California, asks the court to make Apple provide samples of the ‘final commercial version(s)’ of the iPhone and iPad — along with its retail packaging.

But a week before the request was filed, Apple petitioned to see the final production samples of the unreleased number of Samsung products – including Galaxy Tab 10.1 and 8.9, Galaxy S II, Droid Charge and Infuse 4G. While at that, Samsung asks that only their lawyers – and not the production team – be allowed to see the upcoming Apple devices.

Apple’s lawsuit against Samsung last month alleged the latter of copying the user interface and design features of big fruit’s devices. Samsung fired back by launching a number of patent infringement lawsuits, aiming at Apple’s products in various countries. While the two company compete, they have been close business partners. Nevertheless, the relationship has not kept Samsung and its telecommunications group from being targeted.

Comments Off

Opera Mini finally lands on the iPhone and iPad. Worth a download for users.

Opera Mini 5 has made its way to iPhone in April last year and quickly became a big hit.

As with Opera Mini for other devices, Opera Mini 6 for iOS doesn’t only allow users to access webpages more quickly over slower connections, it also has a lot of features not found in the native iOS browser, Safari. Better panning and zooming for viewing sites that do not have a mobile stylesheet is one of the features. It then makes it easier for the user to share links or pages via Facebook, Twitter or MyOpera.

Furthermore, iPad users can also use the browser as it has also been designed to fit the larger device.

Opera Mini 6 is worth a download for users looking for something new, especially if you work with slow connections. It has a nice new UI, some enhanced features and is free.
