The Apple iPad Air has just been released at the Apple October 22 Event just now. Starting at $699

If you had been following the apple event just now you would know that Apple has released a new product or rather a rebrand called the iPad Air. Basically a super light super efficient version of the iPad. The iPad Air has a battery time of 10 hours and a wow factor over 9000. Excuse the pun.

11

Basically some leaked photos of ‘cases’ show casing the new iPad Air already told us that Apple will be sticking with its 9.7-inch Retina display but that the design will be somewhat slimmer, features  resembling iPhone 5s.

iPad Air includes the new A7 64-bit processor. It weighs only 1 pound and starts from $699. Over 1 billion transistors, motion co processor, the whole shibang.

Apple October 22 Event Live Stream – Bookmark this Page and Stay Tuned! Event will Begin Shortly.

In just a few hours, Apple will begin their October Event carrying the slogan ” We Still Have a lot to Cover “. Ready your wallets because we are expecting the release of two shiny iPads; the iPad 5 and iPad Mini 2 and the iPad Mini Retina might even make an apprentice. We are also expecting a new refresh for the Macbook Pro carrying Iris Pro graphics. There has also been rumors in the air that the Mac Pro will make an appearance at Apples Event too.

Also we have reports that the OS Maverick will certainly show up on the event. Basically we are looking at a roundup of iPads, Macbook Pro Refreshes, Mac Pros and OS Updates (Maverick). Needless to say Apple should have its hands full. But until the event actually happens we cannot say for sure what expected products will come true.

Apple October 22 Event Live Stream will start soon.

The Apple event is taking place in Los Angeles and is set to start on 10 AM EST. In about 3 hours at the time of this writing. We are pretty excited about it, bu one thing is absolutely certain, no matter what products are unveiled today your wallets are in for a pretty decent lighten-ing. Apple got a lot of criticism over their new cheaper line of iPhones , we wonder what approach they might take today. Though highly unlikely a new iPad C lineup would brighten the day of many.

As you may know the October 22 Event is literally right around the bend and the rumor mill is running red hot. We have some confirmed and some unconfirmed reports on what might make an appearance on the October 22 Event tomorrow.

Apple-logo1

Almost Confirmed Rumors Regarding the October 22 Event

This what we know for almost certainty.

  • Unless we are wrong, the iPad Mini 2 and iPad 5 will definitely make an appearance. Images of the said tablets have been leaked time and again and this is an absolute no brainier.
  • We know that the 9.7-inch iPad 5 and the 7.9-inch iPad mini 2 tablets are now coming in White.
  • Also it is expected that iPhone’s Finger Print Scanner will make a comeback.
  • iPad 5 should be  priced at around $499 for the 16GB, Wi-Fi only version, going all the way up to $929 for the 128GB Wi-Fi + LTE model. Similarly, the iPad mini 2 to be somewhere around $329 for the cheapest 16GB, Wi-Fi only version, rising all the way up to $659 for the 64GB LTE version.

Ambiguous Rumors

  • Ok so here it is, there have been some talk that we might see the Mac Pro at this event.
  • We also believe that the Macbook Pro will get a refresh at this October 22 Event today. The refresh is expected to include much much better Iris Pro Graphics and better battery life.
  • It is also logical that Apple would shift over to its new 64bit SoC for the new iPads but of  course we have no confirmation regarding this whatsoever.
  • There is also talk of a retina iPad Mini. The iPad Mini 2 is also expected to have a Retina Screen.

In another grandiose move, Sony will pay Twitch to give you a complete Ad Free Viewing Experience on Twitch.tv right now (from 9 AM PST to 9 PM PST). That is ironically in this Ad-Free bliss you will just get one add in the 12 hour window. That add is of course for the PS4.

sony ps4

Sony Buys Out Twitch.tv for a Day so You can watch Ad-Free, with the exception of one Ad – The PS4

This, folks, is called specific targeted advertisement. Pulling a leaf out of movies, Sony’s stunt will earn it the attention of all the viewers of Twitch – mostly gamers at that – marketing directly to their actual audience.

“For the product’s first outing, Sony PlayStation 4 will be bringing Commercial-Free to Twitch viewers on Tuesday, October 15th, for 12 full hours between 9 AM PST and 9PM PST. During that 12-hour window, the only commercials viewers will see is a short bumper explaining the Commercial-Free program, followed by a brief Sony pre-roll, and then the rest of their viewing experience, regardless of which channels they may switch to, will be uninterrupted until 9pm PST.”

So in an amusing contradiction the only ad you will be seeing is of the PS4. This is what it will look like:

Well well well, it seems that Apple fans just can’t get enough of Bling. Rejoice Apple fans because it appears that Gold Colored iPad 5 and iPad Mini 2 are coming soon for they have been spotted and leaked.

Pictures of Gold Colored iPad 5 and iPad Mini 2 Surface on the Web

Th first picture we have is that of Apples’s Gold iPad 5 tablet. Featuring a coffee gold color (once you minus the warm tint) the Golden iPad screams serious bragging rights and maybe to a very little extent elegance. Although to be fair these are quite amateur shots and without professional lighting and equipment any color analysis is pretty much moot point. But hey, its gold. Without further ado here they are (Pictures Courtesy of CTechCN.com):

gold ipad mini 2
The previous picture was over saturated with a warm tone and this to my wannabe professional eye looks slightly unsaturated. Once again a probable lighting problem. More importantly however this picture showcases both the Gold iPad 5 and Gold iPad Mini 2 with perfect clarity. Apart from the copyright tag of the leak website only the backside is shown of both devices.  Here it is:gold ipad 5 There we go folks, Apples Gold iPads. As the release date is very near , you should take this almost as a confirmation that the Gold Color is included for both devices. We were wondering where the gold was when the shots for the iPad 5 leaked online, glad to see its all here. Also if Apple has learned anything from the iPhone 5s the Gold configuration of these devices is not bound to run out any time sooner. Best keep your fingers crossed.

ABI Research is a well known consumer research and market intelligence company, they released a forecast that the next gen consoles ie the PS4 and Xbox One will not outsell the predecessors. Current Gen sales are somewhere around 140 Million Units (In First Five Years) and Next Gen should sell 5% less than that according to ABI Research. However we think that now after 3 months we can finally disagree.

Next Gen PS4 Xbox One

ABI Research: Next Gen (Xbox One, PS4, WiiU) wont Match Sales for Current Gen (Xbox 360, PS3, Wii) And Why We Disagree

First of all this is an extract from the report by ABI Research regarding Next Gen Sales:

“ABI Research expects cumulative shipments of 8th generation consoles from the big three to pass 133 million during the first 5 years on market, compared to nearly 140 million 7th generation consoles over the same length of time……….Without solid titles and first-party franchises, platforms will have a difficult time finding traction. Streaming media is not enough when low-cost STBs are readily available. While we don’t anticipate a drop-off in game console households, barring significant changes to less developed console markets in Asia and Latin America there isn’t a great deal of growth opportunity beyond the current installed base”

Simply put the Market Intelligence Analysts believe that because Next Gen lacks “solid titles” and “first party franchises” next gen will suffer. Also note that this statement was made after E3, meaning they know all about the console exclusives. However we have a feeling that Next Gen will outsell Current Gen. Heres why:

Unless you have been living under a rock you would be aware that the US Government was (partially) shutdown after a bill failed to pass for government funding. Well, even though NASA has groaned to an almost complete standstill the lonely wanderer up on Mars wont take a break.

nasa-shutdown-curiosity-rover

Curiosity Rover Continues to be Operated from NASA even After Govt. Shutdown and Funding Suspension

NASA Affairs are in complete tatters. Out of their almost 18000 workforce only 550 people are currently working. These include some of the most critical employees and includes the full staff of the Mars Rover Curiosity. When the tweets and announcements came for the suspension of all NASA activity i wasn’t sure whether Curiosity would be included in it.

All the peeps of the Gaming World have been going crazy over 30 FPS and 60 FPS standards this last year. From 60fps/1080p being thought the new Next Gen standard to Ryse downgrades. But there a point many people are missing, one which i hope to shed some light on today, the point that why 30 FPS cant and shouldn’t ever be replaced with 60fps.

alanwake-review01-30fps vs 60fpsAlan Wake: A Game Renown for its Story Line.

30fps vs 60fps – The Magic of Story Telling Lies in Lower FPS, 30 FPS will always deliver a more “Cinematic” Experience than 60FPS.

I am of course making quite a bold claim and the burden of proof lies with me. One which i am more than willing to shoulder. Let me begin by saying that the minimum limit that our brain needs to perceive moving frames as a seamless entity ( a video) is 24 Frames Per Second. This is one of the reason 99% of Movies are shot at 24 FPS.  Though this was originally due to Sound Hardware limitation of Old Cinema, it has now become the Cinematic Standard. The 24 fps of the Cinema Industry is roughly equivalent to the 30 fps standard of the Gaming Industry. When you see a video shot at 24 fps / 30 fps there are holes to fill and your brain automatically does this by literally creating stuff out of your imagination : also known as movie magic. The More frames you increase, the less you brain fills in, the less the “magic”.

You would undoubtedly be aware that the next major version of Android will be called Android 4.4 “KitKat”. We know now that it was originally called Key Lime Pie but Google changed its mind for certain reasons Now that KitKat is drawing closer to release we look at the Top 5 Android 4.4 (Almost Authenticated) Rumors  we have:

Android-Kit-Kat

Android 4.4 KitKat Rumors – Top 5 Features

In no particular order and without further ado, lets delve into the top 5 features of KitKat that we know (almost surely) will make it into the final build.

1. Android KitKat will release sometime in October:

We have gotten confirmation from Nestle that KitKat will release in October. Rumors hint towards the 14th (just 3 days from now!. How much the Official PR of Nestle can be relied to accurately predict Android 4.4′s Release Date is anybody’s gues.

OpenGL Vs DirectX is Perhaps One of the most underrated debates of all time. Many people dont even completely understand the difference between the two,  i am sure some of you will be surprised to learn that you can get Games, with just as good graphics as DX on Open GL.

Open Gl Vs. Direct X – Why the Future Lie with Open Gl.

First of all let me say this: Open GL is basically an API called Open Graphics Library.  You can think of an API as the basic pipeline through which your games are run. OpenGL and DirectX are basically the same thing except the fact that the latter is proprietary (Microsoft). Linux based systems and Mac OS based systems currently utilize Open GL while nearly all Windows Based systems utilize Direct X.

Thing is the world is moving towards an Open Source future, where literally everything is non-proprietary.

A common example is Android which is insanely popular since it is open source. Another very important fact is that Open GL is basically thought to be a more stable API than Direct X. Consider the following benchmarks of a GTX Titan Running Grid 2 (Direct X) and Rage (Open GL).

There are no download caps once you’re a member and the best part is GraphicStock is constantly adding new images to their library.

Their graphics are easy to use in all types of media projects and creative design concepts from graphic design, website themes, and building apps to creating video games, motion graphics animations, and more.

With the current gen console war drawing ever closer to its inevitable ending, the stakes are getting higher for fans of both sides each looking for that hidden advantage that might cast the decisive punch. We feel that coupled with the Chinese Market opening, the second screen capabilities of Next Gen will be one of the deciding factors of the finale, if not the only one.

PS4 Second Screen App

Second Screen will be the Deciding Punch. PS4 Second Screen Vs. Xbox One’s SmartGlass

Do keep in mind we can only work with the info we have, ie previews. However, we are going to go on a limb here and say that currently Sony is ahead in the current gen battle. As you read this article feel absolutely free to flame and rage, infact we insist. However the opening of the Chinese Market might actually tilt the table just enough for Microsoft to take home a victory. The second tide turning feature would be the second screen capabilities of both consoles.

The Xbox One SmartGlass app will be released for iOS and Android and will be an update of the current app for Xbox 360. It is thought to get faster roughly by a factor of 4. The SmarGlass is able to control volume and other misc. stuff, access smart content, and gain selective game-dependent options on certain titles. An Example would be the minimap of an fps shown on your mobile.

Well it all began with the Ukranian Carrier Life :) , and if you are wondering, yes,  the smiley is included in the brand name as well.  Life :) also happens to be a highly reliable carrier when it comes to authentic information. No thing is, on their site Life :) ( wow i can’t write with a straight face with all these smileys) has put a disclaimer stating that it will “gladly equip you with a Nano SIM Card for your iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c, Nexus 5 or Android 4.4 smartphone”.

Evidence Surfaces that Suggests that Android 4.4 will make Nano SIM Compulsory

If you consider the fact that its coming from a carrier , you can pretty much count on it. The only alternative is that the statement was a typo. But a typo at this big a level is highly improbable. Still, know your grain of salt. Another point in their favour is that the company seemed to knew that (its now confirmed) that Nexus 5 will only support a nano SIM card. More interestingly the carrier specifically mentions “Android 4.4 KitKat” in it. With so much hints, it is probably not just a coincidence.

Nexus 5 will feature NanoSIM Card

Most of you would already know what a NanoSIM card is, but most people seem to confuse it with a MicroSIM Card. Its basically a further cut down version of the MicroSIM with almost no insulative plastic.

Google’s past history with Moto X and other smart phones shows a fascination? for NanoSims. And since the Apple Standard is a NanoSIM that could be a motivating point too. However, all logic aside, personally speaking, i find it improbable that Google will go ahead with compulsory NanoSIMs in A* 4.4.

PAKISTAN, Lahore, October 1, 2013 – Intel Pakistan and UNESCO have signed a Letter of Intent (LOI) to enable social change and build human capital in underserved communities in Pakistan.

Under the scope of this LOI, UNESCO will utilize Intel education content for pilot e-learning material used in schools; conduct pilot professional development courses based on Intel Teach Program, link Intel® Easy Steps and Intel® Entrepreneurship Basics course content to local UNESCO website. Intel & UNESCO will explore advocacy of these initiatives for the benefit of public sector education and relevant government departments.

Country Manager, Intel Pakistan, Naveed Siraj appreciated the collaborative approach agreed upon between the two organizations. “We are delighted to join hands with UNESCO to address the most critical need of the country; to improve access to education and raise literacy levels through the innovative use of technology. Intel’s engagement with UNESCO will ensure broader digital inclusion of rural communities & greater economic opportunities for our youth who can utilize newly acquired IT skills to transform their lives”, he said.

Intel® Teach Program offers K-12 teachers a curriculum designed specifically for their needs. Teachers learn how, when, and where to incorporate technology tools and resources into their teaching. They are able to learn to create assessment tools and align lesson plans with learning outcomes & act as agents of change better equipped to prepare their students to face the challenges of the 21st century workforce.

Intel® Easy Steps course is designed for adults in underserved areas who find themselves at a disadvantage due to lack of access to proper training on the basic use of computers. Intel Pakistan and UNESCO will integrate Intel Easy Steps Course content to help learners become capable to compete in the digital world.

Intel® Entrepreneurship Basics (E-Basics) Course develops knowledge of fundamental concepts associated with initiating, developing and running a business. Intel & UNESCO will encourage innovation and entrepreneurship as drivers of sustainable growth by leveraging Intel® E-Basics & providing the youth opportunities to develop solutions for relevant social problems.

Speaking at the occasion, Dr. Kozue Kay Nagata, Country Director, UNESCO, said that UNESCO and Intel have joined hands by signing a global framework agreement for carrying out common projects to achieve their common strategic objectives. She appreciated that areas identified for joint cooperation will help bridging the digital divide and promote the effective use of ICTs to support universal access to education, the delivery of quality learning and teaching, equity in education, the professional development of teachers and more efficient education management and governance.

In Pakistan, she said, there is a huge potential for ICTs to bring about the much required qualitative improvement in the system and support the universal access. So far, she said, the use of ICTs in Education is limited. It needs to be mainstreamed in the public sector education system to help Pakistan accelerate its pace for achieving its education and literacy targets. She emphasized that the cooperation between UNESCO and Intel in Pakistan will help build the demand for ICTs in Education and will build the capacities of teachers and teacher educators.

Intel Pakistan and UNESCO look forward to continue their efforts to promote sustainable development, growth and prosperity in the field of education, helping Pakistan to produce the next generation of innovators.
