Microsoft Employee Launches ‘Fixing Windows 8′ Initiative

Posted by on Apr 13, 2012 in Microsoft | 0 comments

imageIt seems that Microsoft’s latest version of Windows is receiving a mixed reaction: some people like it, and some people don’t. Naturally you can’t please everyone on the planet, but we really haven’t heard this much negativity since Windows Vista. The biggest issue thus far is that Microsoft seemingly caters to the new touchy consumer and brushed aside the old, making Windows 8 difficult to manage using the typical mouse and keyboard setup.

“During the MWC keynote, Microsoft made it very clear that Windows 8 will work fantastically if you are using touch, mouse or keyboard,” says former Microsoft employee Mike Bibik on his just-launched website “Unfortunately, that’s not entirely true.”

His initial rant, which went live on March 2, goes into a thorough deconstruction of Windows 8 and its blocky Metro UI. His first big beef was in launching apps that require the user to have a Microsoft account, essentially either a Hotmail account or Windows Live ID. He then complained that the scroll wheel — which for years allowed the user to scroll up and down on the screen — now moves everything horizontally.’

“Metro apps do not have window controls. How does a user know how to exit a Metro app? They can’t minimize, they can’t maximize, they can’t exit,” he wrote. “I’m pretty sure this is where 75-percent of first-time users will simply give up. This will be so frustrating, people won’t even try to fix it. We are going to hear a lot of ‘I just want it the way it used to be!’”

Most of what he found “broken” in Windows 8 were within the first hour of using the Consumer Preview. Granted things will likely change before the final version arrives on store shelves later this year, now is the time to throw complains out to Microsoft before code is etched in stone, hence the need for sites like to point out glaring design issues. Bibik is drawing upon his UX designer experience to offer potential solutions to these issues.

On his website, Bibik links to a video uploaded to YouTube recorded by Chris Pirillo which shows his father trying — and failing — to use Windows 8 Consumer Preview. As Bibik points out, power users should be able to figure out how the mouse works in Windows 8; novices and new users will be completely lost. As seen in the video, the “dad” couldn’t even figure out how to get back to the tiles after opening Windows Explorer.

“Who puts this out,” the dad says after four minutes. His son says it’s by Microsoft.

“They trying to drive me to Mac?”

In Bibik’s post called “Fixing Metro By Mouse,” he provides three possible solutions: Start+Charms, Apps+Charms, and an actual Metro Bar. The latter option would be visible at all times as a thin bar at the bottom of the screen. On the left would be a button for the Start menu and on the right would be a button for the Charms menu. When the Desktop is visible, the classic Start bar will need enough left and right padding so the Metro bar can fit on top of it.

At this stage, it’s highly unlikely Microsoft would even consider implementing his suggestions. Has Microsoft completely taken the wrong direction with Windows 8? Is Microsoft so intent on taking on Apple in the tablet sector that it’s completely lost track of the desktop consumer? We have a while before Windows 8 goes gold, so it will be interesting to see what will happen to the new OS before then.

Linux kernel 3.3 released with merged Android code and more

Posted by on Apr 13, 2012 in Linux | 0 comments

imageThe latest refresh of the Linux kernel, 3.3, is now available, and the second release of 2012 brings with it the long-awaited merging of code from Google’s little side project. While that is particularly interesting to developers looking to boot Android or run apps on the stock Linux kernel (FYI: optimized power management and other infrastructure that didn’t make it this time will arrive in the next release, 3.4) and represents a resolution to the issues that kept the two apart for so long it’s not the only new feature included.

There are improvements to file systems like Btrfs, memory management, networking, security and much, much more. Hit the source link below for the full changelog or grab the code and from the usual locations and get your compile on directly.

Google to Release 7 Inch Tablet this Summer

Posted by on Apr 13, 2012 in Google | 0 comments

imageIn January 2010, Google released the Nexus One, which is its first branded Android device. The smartphone was made by HTC. It failed to make an impact on the market as Verizon stuck with the Apple Android and other Android phones. Google 7 Inch Tablet

But Nexus One paved the way for other Android smartphones from various companies. The platform became the leader in the smartphone market as more Android smartphones are sold compared to the Apple iPhone.

One major issue that Google encountered with the Nexus One was that it was only available through online order. The meant that consumers couldn’t experience the look and feel of the device until it was shipped out to the buyer. As a result, a lot of Nexus One units were returned to Google and HTC because they didn’t live up to their expectations.

For its second attempt at con-branded Android device, Google is set to release a tablet that would be available near the end of the summer season. Google CEO Eric Schmidt said last December that the tablet would be ready in six months. Google originally planned to launch the device next month but pushed it back because the device was getting too expensive.

Google opted to spend a few more months to bring the price down so that it would be competitive with the Apple iPad and other tablets on the market today. It has a 7 inch screen, NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor, and runs on Google Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

iPhone game devs give us their thoughts on the iPad

Posted by on Apr 13, 2012 in Gaming | 0 comments

imageWith yesterday’s announcement from Apple of its much hyped "latest creation" — the iPad — and the news that already existing iPhone applications (that means games too, folks) will be playable on the device, we started wondering how the developers of the world felt about this shiny new piece of gadgetry. So we asked a handful of our favorites — Canabalt’s Adam "Atomic" Saltsman, Pocket God’s Dave Castelnuovo, and PopCap’s Andrew Stein, just to namedrop a few — to give us their reactions.

"It’s hard to say anything concrete without actually playing with the thing personally, but I’m optimistic about it continuing to open up video games to even more ‘normal’ people," Saltsman told us. "I’m hopeful that having a big multitouch space will help mediate the whole ‘fat fingers on a tiny screen’ problem." PopCap’s Andrew Stein agreed, telling us "We’ll certainly look at the unique capabilities of the iPad and work hard to utilize those in instances where they can make our games even more fun."

Republic of Fun prez Mike Rasmussen sees things a bit differently, noting the opportunity in the upped horsepower of the device. "From a pure gaming perspective, I’m excited about the additional resolution and horsepower, and really interested to start understanding the 3D performance of the A4 [chip]." But even the most successful app developer on the market — Pocket God creator Dave Castelnuovo — seems a bit reticent of the iPad, telling us he sees "a lot of potential with the device," but his company is going to "wait to see what kind of acceptance the tablet will have" before moving forward with development.

But that’s not all! See the full reactions from a variety of iPhone game developers after the break.

Apple iPhone 4s

Posted by on Apr 13, 2012 in Apple, Mobile Phones | 0 comments

imageAfter iPhone 4, the iPhone 4s is the most amazing release from Apple.  The iPhone 4s has such awesome features that can amaze its lovers. Like its precursor, the iPhone 4s has lovely design and improved features. When iPhone 4 was released, people were attracted towards it because of its unique and fabulous design than the whole iPhone series. On the same lines, the iPhone 4s is crafted. The chassis and body shape is almost the same but the iPhone 4s is a little heftier (140 grams) than iPhone 4 (137 grams). Dimensions and compactness of both the phones are also same.

The most amazing and attractive things about iPhone 4s are its software and hardware configurations. Let us first discuss about its software. The iPhone 4s contains “Siri.” You might be wondering about the word “Siri”? It is software that has indeed increased the value of iOS 5 operating system and iPhone 4s. For Siri, your voice is a command. Just speak and give your iPhone 4s an order to make a call, open a particular application, send the message, save the contact, schedule the meeting etc. Don’t think Siri as an ordinary voice command application, as in ordinary phones. It is something more than that. Talk to Siri as you would to a person. For example, “Remind me to pick up my wallet, before I leave for the meeting.” Siri will intelligently find the information that you need and give you the answer. Siri not only understands what you are saying. But it also understands what you mean and what you want. It is a very intelligent application of iPhone 4s that makes you feel that you are having a conversation with one of your friends.

The iPhone 4s contains the most advanced operating system, the iOS 5. It is a fact that the love of people with iPhone is due to its impressive features. And all the features of any machinery are embedded in its operating system. So, iOS is indeed the necessary cause of iPhone’s uniqueness and popularity. The new iOS 5 gives an elegant an instinctive user-interface, multi-touch feature with capacitive display, compatibility to more than 500,000 apps on iPhone app store and it is having more than 200 new features. The display of iPhone 4s is protected by scratch resistant glass with oleophobic coating. iPhone 4s contains iCloud. It is an application that can manage your contacts, photos, music, documents, videos and much more stuff. The iCloud has more versatility than “People Hub” being used HTC smartphoens.

Now, something about the hardware. The iPhone 4s is powered by the most powerful processor in the iPhone series i-e dual Core A-5 processor. Apple iPad 2 has the same processor. iPhone 4 has a simple 1 GHz Cortex-A8 processor. The A-5 has made iPhone 4s very speedy. You just need to tap a specific application and phone opens it in a real time. Also the multi-tasking is very good. You can play game and listen to the music at the same time. This new processor is power-saver and it gives iPhone 4s an excellent timing.

The iPhone 4s has 8 MP camera which is far better than the 5 MP camera of iPhone 4. The camera is provided with LED flash and touch focus, geo-tagging, face detection and HDR features. The camera gives excellent photo shoot and 1080p HD video recording. The camera does not care about whether you capture photo in low or high light and it also does not care about the motion of the thing to be captured and the number of people. It captures the world as it should be captured. The iPhone 4s has a secondary VGA camera. It also gives a good picture quality and helps you a lot in video calling or video conferencing.

The iPhone 4s does not contain any memory card slot but it has internal memory storage of 16 to 64 GB and 512 MB RAM. These two things are exactly in accordance with the iPhone 4.

Two other extraordinary features of iPhone 4s are Airplay and Airprint. With Airplay, you can connet your iPhone 4s wirelessly with your HDTV and speakers via Apple TV. You play the game on your iPhone 4s and what you are seeing in the phone screen is appearing on the big screen of TV. With Airprint, you can connect your iPhone 4s wirelessly with any printer and print your e-mails, photos, documents etc.

These were the few things that can easily differentiate iPhone 4s from other phones of its series and actually these are things that make iPhone unique and interesting.
