iPhone Bezel PatentWhether you’re using an Apple iOS device – or any other maker – most smart-devicess work the same way, you typically use the touchscreen for input tasks such as typing, tapping and gesturing.

Until now, touch screens have worked just fine for most things we typically do on our devices, however, it can often be tricky to see everything that’s on screen when you’re holding your finger over a portion of the display.

Apple has an idea to work around this handicap…

A recently published patent application from the clever boffins at Apple covers an idea to make the bezels in iPhones, iPads, and other Apple devices touch sensitive as well.

The bezel is the portion of the device that frames the screen. The application describes a scenario where this slim – and getting slimmer – area would have touch sensors just like the screen, so that you’d be able to scroll and tap without ever needing to cover the display :: Read the full article »»»»

University of Melbourne Has Developed Algorithm Explaining Viral VideoA marketing professor at the University of Melbourne says he has developed an algorithm to explain what makes an internet video go viral. YouTube has only existed for six years, but already there are more than 20 videos that have each been viewed by more than 100 million people. Videos that go viral often depict funny or amusing situations captured by everyday people – like ‘Charlie bit my finger’, featuring a young boy complaining of his baby brother’s toothy habits, which has exceeded 100 million views. Until now no-one has had a real theory about what makes a video go viral, but University of Melbourne marketing professor Dr Brent Coker thinks his algorithm can explain the success of viral videos B★C READ MORE


INDIA: $36 Tablet PC, Meet Aakash Tab

Posted: October 6th, 2011 | Author: | Filed under: mcsixtyfive | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , | Comments Off on INDIA: $36 Tablet PC, Meet Aakash Tab

The Indian Government has unveiled a prototype of a touchscreen, tablet computer, the Aakash Tablet PC will go on sale for $36. As more data is migrated to the cloud simple web-enabled platforms such as tablet-pc’s will replace the bloated desktop and laptop hardware architectures of today, the future is apparently mobile. The Tablet PC has been launched as the world’s cheapest tablet computer, to be sold to students at the subsidised price of $36 and later in shops for about $61. Most of India’s 1.2 billion people are poor and products such as Apple iPad are beyond the reach even of many in the fast-growing middle class. The government is buying the first units of the lightweight touch-screen device, called Aakash, or “sky” in Hindi, for $51 each from a British company which is assembling the web-enabled devices in India. A pilot run of 100,000 units will be given to students for free, with the first 500 handed out at the launch to a mixed response. Aakash Tab supports video conferencing, has two USB ports and a three-hour battery life but some users said it was slow. India has a reputation for creating affordable products that are easy to use and sturdy enough to handle its rugged environment – from Tata Motors’ $2,000 Nano car to generic versions of pharmaceuticals. Right about now, Apple Inc has to be sat in a corner sweating, wondering what it can cut off iPad, a $600 Tab now sounds far fetched? B★C READ MORE

A recent specious update to several Android-based HTC devices has resulted in the installation of tools that are collecting a treasure trove of personal data without permission, according to a recent report. Security researcher Artem Russakovskii found that any app that requests – android.permission.internet – a standard for apps that access the Web or show ads, can also access things like location history, phone numbers, SMS data, as well as a list of user accounts and logins. In news that will doubtlessly trouble HTC smartphones owners, a security team have uncovered a “massive security vulnerability” in HTC Android devices that allows any application with Internet access to gain access to private data, including user accounts, email addresses, GPS location, text message data and phone numbers. The vulnerability is said to affect HTC smartphones running the latest version of HTC’s software, including the EVO 3D, EVO 4G, Thunderbolt, and others!  M★C READ MORE
