Try Windows Phone 7 Online – Interactive Demo/Emulator

After hearing lots of talk over internet on Microsoft’s latest astonishing mobile OS called Windows Phone 7 named ‘Mango’, many of them were just curious to try it, especially its Metro UI (user Interface). It’s new, We don’t have any idea how it feels when we use it, We don’t know how it will do, when we hold it on our hands. To know that, we don’t have to afford for a new phone, for the sake of trying its interface and look. Microsoft planted a online based interactive demo on its website for those who want to try it, before buying it.

The demo is quite interactive, which seems to resemble a emulator, but it is not. It demonstrates some of the features that might help you to understand the interface better. Not all the features are functioning, but some of them like adding a calendar entry, adding a mail account (predefined account) and some more. This is just to demonstrate how the interface works. As it is online based and runs on browser, you can try this in your mobile browser, this gives you a feel that you are using windows phone until you reach the limitation boundary of this demo.

The demo performs better in desktop based browsers, it succeeds in delivering all the graphical effects concerned to the user interface. Those who are new to Metro UI can experience and learn the way how it works. The interactive demo also guides with a green dot and green swipe symbols to show the new users clickable areas which shows them the new feature and swipe direction. Note that, this is online JavaScript based demo, the real windows phone works far better than this, while the graphics are even more eye catchy and feel were even more feather touchy.

Windows Phone Demo Page on Microsoft’s site, If you are using mobile phone to view this, the demo may or may not appear based on your phone’s capability.

iPhone 5: Phil Schiller introduces the iPhone 4S

But clearly on the bright side Apple went guns blazing on the techie side of the product from it’s predecessor. And yes we do get an Dual Core A5 processor in the iPhone 4S.

Windows 8 The Next Windows Is Announced!

Good news for all Windows users and Microsoft fans. The next installment of Windows Operating System ” Windows 8 ” successor of currently available Windows 7.

The new Windows OS now have over-hauled its GUI to something more of an Tablet or Gaming console GUI. Well this is an great move? Well, Yes it is specifically for Tablets and its really been promising. I wish this OS will merge the distance between the PC and Tablets. This new OS is now being demonstrated only on Tablets so an PC version of this OS is not shown yet.

There is also some rumor that this UI will come to the PC version with the help of Microsoft Console sibling the Kinect camera. If that comes it will be soo easy for some Users who don’t have any OS working knowledge.

This is an great step by Microsoft but if they sacrifice all the customizing options on PC. Well this is an utter disaster. Do tell us your thought below by commenting and do follow me on twitter http://twitter.com/#!/Sudharshan_Hi5

iPhone 5 Debut’s On September!

Apple just slightly told us that they were going to release the next-gen iPhone in sometime in 2011. But now we have an release date that it is off-course its September. Still there is no news on what we are expecting from Apple, yet we can never wish of Apple giving us flash support. But still this product makes us exciting after some controversies that it went over the ” Network Coverage problem”. The iPhone 4 was an piece of art in the modern World technology, whether you love or hate it. Will iPhone 5 will be as good looking as its predecessor? Well in September we will surely know about it.

The iPhone 5 come with Apple’s A5 processor and the iOS4 is now upgraded to iOS5. Apple also promised that due to the new powerful processor the battery life will not decrease and the iPhone will have the same 10hour battery life or even more. Due to the more powerful processor at hand Apple is now going for some 4G support. Yet 4G is in its early stages I doubt they would put this into it. What the heck anyway they would put it in iPhone 6. And Apple would be very keen on its slim factor and do some ways to make the battery thin because the processor is kinda power hungry. I’m sure that the next iPhone will be thinner and it would really have an bigger screen than iPhone 4.

Well these are the information that we got. If you guys have more information on this do tell us and share it with us by commenting below.

Apple Is Tracking Your Location With The Help Of Its Mobile Devices

Yes, recently it has been come to know that Apple can track your locations with the help of your iPhone’s and iPad’s. How? Because they have actually built the device with an tracker into it. This has offended many people that are using Apple’s products. Hey! everyone does needs some privacy here and there. So this actually caused an lot of issues and Mr. Jobs is questioned again for this problem and well, he started defending his company for it.

Jobs admitted in a New York Times interview Wednesday that the storing of location data was a mistake, but said the company wasn’t keeping tabs on its customers.

And Jobs said;

“We haven’t been tracking anybody,” Jobs said. “Never have. Never will.”

In a press release, Apple said that it didn’t receive location data for iPhone and iPad users, but rather signals from nearby Wi-Fi hotspots and cell towers. The maps showing customer location history was called “a bug” that will be fixed in a free iTunes update soon.

The location data, according to Apple, “helps your iPhone rapidly and accurately calculate its location when requested.” After the update, the data cache will be saved for a maximum of seven days.But many people don’t believe Jobs’ explanation.The attacks against Apple built up quickly in the week following the release of an iPhone Tracker app that showed customers’ location history, including a lawsuit. “South Park” even had fun with it in an episode Wednesday night showing dark-suited men from Apple tracking down Cartman’s iPad and attempt to take his blood.

Well that episode was indeed really funny and sometime kinda make us think like are we being watched by some goofy guys over the internet? Well I sure don’t like to be tracked because I hate being tracked. Do tell us what you think of this misery that Apple created and what should be done by commenting below.

Those who are planning on getting the new White iPhone. Think again.

Google’s Answer To Apple iTunes

Google the great web giant just in this monday bought an music sync company called Push Life. This is been found that Google motive to acquire this company is kind od an mystery at the first time. Then after some research it is found that Google acquired this company to challenge Apple’s giant the iTunes.

Push Life’s existing Android and Blackberry apps act as stand-ins for the iPod app found on Apple’s iPhone. Users can purchase and play music from the app on their phones, and then sync with either iTunes or Windows Media Player on their computers using a desktop plug-in. From now onwards this company would serve Google as it primary music selling service as of like the iTunes. Push life’s new service would become exclusive to Google android users and we might see an fierce battle over music download section of the market. Even the iTunes have some drawbacks in its User Interface. Well if Google sorts those things we might finally have an iTunes killer.

Due to this acquisition it is not even surprise as if even Google came up with own digital music playing device that will come as an competition to the iPod. Well these are actually our suggestions, you can also tell your suggestions by leaving an comment below.
