News Apple Gedgets Update : Apple’s Upcoming Watch Will Replace Your Car Keys, Says CEO Tim Cook

Apple Watch will replace your car keys and its battery will last the whole day, Apple’s Chief Executive Tim Cook told the Telegraph in an interview. The watch is designed to replace car keys and the clumsy, large fobs that are now used in many vehicles, Cook told the newspaper.

Its battery will last the whole day, and will not take as long to charge as an iPhone, the report quoted Cook as saying. Apple Watch will also work as a credit card through Apple Pay, Cook told the paper, but did not mention how user verification will work with the watch.

The rollout of the watch might pose a challenge for Apple’s stores, which may involve “tweaking the experience in the store,” the Telegraph said, citing Cook’s conversation with the staff at Apple’s Covent Garden store in London.

Last March, Apple unveiled CarPlay, which lets drivers access contacts on their iPhones, make calls or listen to voicemails without taking their hands off the steering wheel. Earlier this month, Reuters reported that the iPhone maker is looking at making a self-driving electric car, and is talking to experts at carmakers and automotive suppliers.
In the interview, Cook said that the Apple Watch will operate a special rewards system, track the user’s activity and “be correct to 50 milliseconds”.

Apple was not immediately available for comment.

The company has scheduled a special event on March 9, where it is expected to showcase Apple Watch, which will be launched in April. While announcing Apple’s record-breaking earnings, CEO Tim Cook had revealed a rough launch date of April 2015 for the device.

The smartwatch was announced last year in September, but the company didn’t reveal much about its availability, except that it would come in ‘early Spring’. Later, Apple retail chief, Angela Ahrendts,was more specific and revealed the Watch would come only after the Chinese New Year. She had also disclosed how Apple had started planning marketing strategies and all retail employees would be trained to help customers try out the new watch and its features.

The Apple Watch sports a squarish design instead of a circular one popularised by Motorola’s Moto 360. The Watch is crafted from custom alloys of polished or space black stainless steel (Apple Watch), space gray or silver anodized aluminum (Apple Watch Sport) and 18-karat rose or yellow gold (Apple Watch Edition). Going by the demo during its launch keynote, the Watch can do a lot of stuff. Here’s everything you need to know about the Apple Watch.

News Motorola Gadget : A Big Bet On Choice: Motorola Will Soon Let You Build Your Own Smartwatch

In March, Motorola will flip on a new version of Moto Maker, the tool it created to let users design a Moto X to their exact specifications. This time, though, it won’t just be for smartphones: Motorola will soon allowing you to customize your own Moto 360 smartwatch.

You’ll be able to choose from three watch casings: silver, black, and champagne gold. Then you’ll choose a band, which comes in two sizes, in either leather or metal. (Motorola’s careful to not designate the sizes “male” and “female,” but that’s obviously the idea.) Lastly, you can select one of 11 watch faces, picking the one that will appear the first time you turn your watch on. There are a couple of new watch faces, and Motorola finally offers the gorgeous single-link band it teased in its first promo video nearly a year ago.

Motorola’s been working towards this moment. When I ask if Moto Maker has always been the plan for the 360, everyone on our video call laughs. Of course it’s always been the plan, they tell me, it’s just taken a while to get here. In an effort to be present at—or at least near—the birth of Android Wear, Motorola had to tear a few pages off its launch plans. “There’s a couple of things here we’ve been dying to finally get out, for people to buy and wear,” says Dickon Isaacs, Motorola’s director of design for wearables.
What the announcement means, right now, is that you can simply combine parts however you want. It’s not going to convince the naysayers to suddenly buy a smartwatch, but if you’ve held off on a purchase because it just didn’t quite look the way you wanted it to, there’s certainly a lot more to try now. During a demo with Motorola execs, I picked out a natural silver case, a dark metal 23mm band, and a gold watch face. It’s classy but edgy; it says yeah, I sell insurance and drive a Camry, but I could kill you and get away with it.

What the expanded Moto Maker might mean later is much larger. It might allow Motorola to offer upgrades to its products more quickly, with more customizations. It might allow it to build an Apple Store-like experience online, where you can play with your device before you buy it. It might allow it to flip the upgrade cycle, so that you upgrade each part only as you need to. Most of all, it might show the rest of the tech industry that this is how you sell technology when technology is made to be beautiful. You give people choice, you let them test and try and experiment, and you let them build something they love because it’s uniquely theirs.
Building your own Moto 360 won’t change everything, but Moto Maker eventually could

The Moto Maker interface is obvious as ever, a rendering of your chosen timepiece changing in real time to mirror your selections. It’s not like with the X, where you pick from dozens of colors, accents, and storage options. Buying a watch is much simpler. There are high-res, detailed images of every part of the watch, designed to be good enough to make you feel like you’ve touched the device. You can see the textures on the band, the shadows on the face.

“Our research across all categories show that details matter, construction matters, materials matter,” Isaacs says. “When people first see an object, it’s a visceral reaction, right?” Once you’ve selected your case, band, and face, the Moto Maker facility in Shenzhen, China makes your device and ships it to you. Don’t like the one you picked? Ship it back, on the company’s dime, and try again.
I’ve always loved playing with different combinations for the Moto X—I’ve spent hours designing dream phones, even though I’ve never bought one. That fun of shopping is a key part of what Motorola is tapping into.

This is only the beginning, too. Moto Maker is a much larger project at Motorola, one Isaacs says is core to the ethos of the entire company. “We clearly believe in the power of choice, as a brand. And this is really empowering. To be able to design your own watch—it’s not an analog watch, it’s a highly sophisticated device of the future. To be able to do that at this level, we just think it’s going to be incredibly liberating.”

Isaacs’ stance is surprisingly controversial in the watch world. Apple’s design chief Jony Ive made waves last week by attacking an “unnamed” watch company, and though he didn’t say the word “Motorola,” he all but blinked it in Morse code. He flippantly told The New Yorker that “their value proposition was ‘Make it whatever you want. You can choose whatever color you want.’ And I believe that’s abdicating your responsibility as a designer.”

When I mention the quote, Isaacs pauses for a moment before responding. Then he leans close to the microphone. “I just think… we’re not dogmatic about our design approach. We want to empower people, and ultimately people are going to be more emotionally connected to their device if they’re part of the design process.”

John Renaldi, who runs web products and e-commerce at Motorola, likens it to the Ikea Effect, the idea that we place far more value on things we create ourselves, even when our part in the process consists of pushing a piece of wood into a pre-made hole in another piece of wood.

“You don’t actually build a table from Ikea, right?” he says. “But when you have a part in that process, actually assembling it yourself… then you’re out telling people ‘look how great this freaking table is.'” I know the feeling: I’ve put together an apartment’s worth of Ikea furniture, pushing this thing into that other thing, and I’m very proud of myself.
The Ikea Effect works in Motorola’s favor

Offering choices is just good business—Motorola loves creating evangelists, and a few times the execs lovingly mentioned buyers who get their device and immediately Instagram their customized model. Isaacs also happens to be right when he says it’s crucial for the Moto 360 to reflect its owners’ taste and style as much as their ability to quickly get directions to Starbucks. Motorola wants to guide that style, though. It’s intentionally not offering hundreds of wildly varying options to users. There’s no plastic model, no Hello Kitty strap; the idea seems to be that you can design anything you want so long as it’s pretty. “So of course they can go anywhere,” Isaacs says, “but at a high level, when people go into the site for the first time, they’re going to see beautiful examples.”

Over and over, Isaacs and Renaldi tell me this is just the beginning for Moto 360 and Moto Maker. They won’t be specific about what’s next, but they lay clues. Isaacs says he’s always viewed the watch “as a true collection and portfolio of products,” instead of the few options initially available. Moto Maker might soon be a natural place for Motorola to offer new bands and colors for each season and trend, or to offer unique, curated collaborations with designers and brands. Picture it now: Motorola Moto 360 by Marc by Marc Jacobs.
One challenge with the X was the simple mechanics of purchasing. Moto Maker is a website, and most people buy phones in a physical store, with a sales associate who can answer questions about upgrade dates and early termination fees. The Moto 360 doesn’t have this problem, but Motorola seems to also be exploring ways to bring Moto Maker to places other than your computer.

On the software side, there might someday be more to customize than just the watch face. Lally Narwal, the company’s director of product marketing, won’t reveal much, but he says coyly that “the funny thing is, when you go over to the Google campus… they’re all wearing 360s.” Motorola didn’t provide them, he swears. “So they understand that we need to work together. Motorola being the lead OEM when it comes to Android Wear, they’re certainly making a collaborative effort to improve the experience.” It’s not hard to imagine being able to pre-install apps, set up shortcuts, and completely personalize your watch before it ever leaves the factory.

There are a lot of maybes. Hidden behind the glass window in the conference room are the 360 team’s desks, which they promise are filled with other things left to show. But one thing, Motorola has made abundantly clear: to them, design isn’t about telling me what I want. It’s about providing all of the best things it can find, and then letting me mix and match them how I will. That sounds like something even Jony Ive could get behind.

New Product Launched : HP Unveils The Spectre x360, A 13-Inch Convertible

HP is looking to wow customers with its latest notebook, a touch-enabled, hybrid device called the Spectre x360. Featuring a machined-aluminium body, a thin profile, powerful internals, and long-battery life, the Spectre looks set to impress.

Hybrid devices have been a staple of the Windows 8 era but the new laptops coming onto the market seem to just now be coming into their own. That’s thanks to better than ever battery life, and improvements in screens and CPU power optimizations.
The Spectre x360 fits into this market very well, and HP seems to have focused heavily on the design and aesthetic of this machine. The device features a 0.6-inch profile and a clamshell formfactor.

However, the 13-inch FHD/QHD touchscreen display can bend over backwards, up to 360 degrees. Users can change the screen orientation depending in which way they use the machine, alternating between regular laptop and tablet styles of use.
HP is also touting the new hinges that the device uses, claiming they’ll last for the lifetime of the laptop without any of the problems that are traditionally found on this type of device.

One of the most important aspects that the manufacturer is touting, is the Spectre’s battery life. HP claims that the combination of efficient screens, CPU and Wi-Fi optimizations will allow the device to go more than 12 hours without a charge. Of course, this claim will need a lot of testing once the device hits markets.

Here are the Spectre x360’s main specs:
  • Dimensions: 12.7 in (W) x 8.6 in (D) x 0.6 in (H)
  • Weight: 3.26 lb (1. 47 kg)
  • Intel Broadwell i5 -5200U CPU at 2.2 Ghz
  • 8GB DDR3 RAM
  • 256GB SSD (upgradeable to 512 GB)
  • 13.3-inch Full HD/Quad HD display
  • 3x USB 3.0 ports, HDMI port, MiniDisplay port
The HP Spectre x360 goes on sale today on the manufacturer’s website, and will also be arriving on BestBuy after the first half of this month. As for pricing, that all depends on which specs you opt for. The base i5 model with a 1080p screen starts at $899.99, while a range-topper i7 with a QHD screen and a 512GB SSD will end up costing you $1399.99.

New Producte Revealed : Microsoft Lumia 640 And 640 XL Appear Ahead Of Reveal

File this under strange, but Microsoft appears to have accidentally revealed two new devices on its website, the Microsoft Lumia 640 and the Lumia 640 XL. The page has since then been pulled but WinBeta managed to grab a screenshot of it before it went offline.

While these handsets have obviously not been confirmed by Microsoft, it's quite possible we'll see the devices being unveiled at Microsoft's keynote in the Mobile World Congress 2015 tomorrow.
The devices will probably be entry-level as an Adduplex report earlier this month confirmed that we would probably see a Microsoft RM-1031, a phone with a 4" display with 480x800 resolution. The model number matches the Nokia XL, an Android phone that was short-lived, so Microsoft may soon be launching successors for the Nokia X and Nokia XL, which are likely the devices (un)announced above.

Still, without knowing the full specifications, price point, or an official confirmation from Microsoft, it's difficult to determine whether these phones will be the recycled versions of the previous Nokia handsets, but we'll let you know when they launch. Other low to mid-end Lumia devices are expected to be unveiled at Microsoft's keynote tomorrow, including the Lumia 1330.

News Product Launch : Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 With Windows: Write On The Screen With Any Pen Or Pencil

Summary: This 8-inch Windows tablet is the first with Lenovo's Anypen technology that enables using any pen or pencil to write or draw on the screen. We go hands on with it to see how it fares. 

Yoga Tablet 2

At the CES earlier this year Lenovo proudly showed off the new technology for touch tablets that permits writing on the screen with any pen or pencil. The Anypen feature is designed to work like tablets with special pens for drawing and writing on the screen.
The Yoga Tablet 2 is the first touch tablet from Lenovo with this technology. The 8-inch Yoga is much like the company’s other Yoga tablets with a cylindrical handle on one edge that houses the camera, kickstand, and a large battery. It ships with Windows 8.1 with Bing and is priced at $299.99.

Yoga Tablet 2 hardware specs as reviewed:
  • OS: Windows 8.1 with Bing
  • CPU: Intel Atom Z3745, quad core, 1.33GHz
  • Display: 8-inch IPS, 1920 x 1200; Anypen (write with any pen or pencil on screen)
  • Memory/storage: 2GB/32GB
  • Connectivity: Wi-Fi a/b/g/n; Bluetooth 4.0
  • Ports: microUSB, microSD (up to 64GB); 3.5m audio
  • Battery: 6400 mAH; 24 WH; 15 hours
  • Cameras: Front - 1.6MP; Rear - 8MP
  • Weight: 0.94 lbs
  • Price: $299

Good Windows tablet:


The construction of the Yoga Tablet 2 is very solid. While it feels like premium metal, the case is constructed of plastic. It is easy to hold for long stretches, especially using the cylinder on the side of the tablet in portrait.

The kickstand flips out of the cylinder with a little finagling, and forms a multi-position stand. This permits using the Yoga Tablet 2 at a low angle for handwriting, upright for viewing the screen, and hanging from a hook. Popping out the kickstand exposes a door covering the microSD slot. This slot handles cards up to 64GB, which will be needed given the 32GB internal storage.

Windows 8.1 runs very well on the Yoga due to the Intel processor. It’s one of the best Windows tablets I’ve used due to good performance, the nice display (1920 x 1200), and the kickstand. The start screen flows smoothly, as do most apps. With only 2GB of memory, it is surprising that it runs so well. That might not be the case if a lot of apps are run at once. It is a joy to use the Yoga Tablet 2, especially given the low price of $299.99.

Lenovo estimates the battery life at 15 hours, and in testing that’s what we experienced. The long battery life is due to the cylinder on the tablet which can hold a bigger battery than other thin tablets.

The cylinder also houses the rear camera and big power button that lights up when charging. Close to the cylinder are the Windows Home button on the left, and the microUSB charging port and volume buttons on the right.

The Yoga Tablet 2 has a decent audio system for such a small tablet. The stereo speakers are on the cylinder facing the front. Audio is not overly loud but louder than most tablets we’ve tested.

Anypen - where’s the rejection?

When Lenovo unveiled the Anypen feature at the CES earlier this year it sounded like a new pen technology that would work like active digitizers with special pens. In reality, Anypen is a touch digitizer that in addition to operation by fingertip, can also be used with standard pens and pencils.

This works OK, but writing on the screen with a pen/pencil is sometimes hit or miss. If you press down a little harder than normal it works better.

There is no special software for using Anypen on our review unit; it is handled by Windows 8.1. Handwriting is done through the Windows pen text entry panel, which works as we expected. Handwriting and drawing with a pen or pencil can also be done in any app that supports the activity. Drawing and inking in OneNote works as expected.

Anypen is simply a touch screen that allows pen/pencil use for more precision than possible with a fingertip. It doesn’t add extra features to touch control of the Yoga Tablet 2. Using a pen is like using a stylus on a touch screen but in our testing this often resulted in missed taps and we resorted to using the old fingertip to work the interface.

While writing on the screen in apps like OneNote using a real pen is cool, it doesn’t work well due to the lack of palm rejection. That’s the technology that ignores the hand when it’s resting on the page and only registers the pen input.

Long-time tablet users know how important palm rejection is for inking on the screen. Without it, writing with a pen is unnatural as you must keep your hand off the display and only touch it with the pen tip. That’s the case with the Yoga Tablet 2, and it’s a big failure to not have palm rejection. This reduces Anypen to largely a gimmick that is not practical for use.

In conclusion:

The Yoga Tablet 2 is a nice Windows tablet, especially for the low price. It is fluid in operation, and the 8-inch display is great with Windows. The battery life is outstanding, and the integrated kickstand rounds out the offering.

Anypen is an interesting gimmick, but as implemented it's not practical for either controlling the Windows interface nor its intended use for handwriting on the screen. The lack of pressure sensitivity makes it useless for drawing on the display, which is virtually impossible without palm rejection.

On the plus side, the Yoga demonstrates what we found when testing the Dell Venue 8 tablet, that 8 inches is a good size for a Windows tablet. The display is large enough for easy viewing, yet small enough for comfortable use.

The Yoga Tablet 2 is a good value for $299.99 with Windows 8.1. It comes with a license for Microsoft Office 365.

Pros:
  • Fluid performance
  • Good price
  • Long battery life
  • Microsoft Office 365 license included
Cons:
  • Anypen
  • Lack of palm rejection
Reviewer’s rating: 8 out of 10

Lenovo sent us the optional sleeve for the Yoga Tablet 2 which is priced at $29.99. Since the cylinder on the tablet precludes the production of any type of smart cover case, buyers will likely want the sleeve to protect the tablet when out and about. A photo of the sleeve is included in the gallery above.

New Technology Update : Drones Still Useful In Supply Chains Despite FAA Regulations

Last week the Federal Aviation Administration published its rules and regulations for the oversight of drone usage within the United States. Many will and have argued that these rules are too restrictive for companies such as Amazon or Google to truly take advantage of the technology. The basic parameters of the guidelines set by the FAA:
  • Drones must be less than 55 lbs in weight
  • Can only fly during the day in good weather
  • Must not fly close to airports
  • Cannot fly faster than 100mph
  • And must be within visible site of the operator
 
On the surface these restrictions severely limit the dreams of the likes of Jeff Bezos. One of the great opportunities for drones within the supply chain and particularly with the delivery side is the ability to enhance the last mile portion. The last mile is always a challenge since you have to break down the orders to the individual level. Drones seem to offer an affordable and flexible solution - but not if the FAA rules are in place. This does not mean there are not some use cases that supply chains can take advantage of immediately:
  • Asset monitoring - this is already taking place in agriculture, oil & gas, and mining to name a few. Drones provide the flexibility for activities such as survey work, monitoring of assets, determining crop growth, etc. In countries such as Australia, mining companies are already leaning heavily on the pilot-less aircrafts to assist with activity on the ground. By some estimates the usage can save close to 90% of the $2000 an hour cost for a helicopter.
  • Remote delivery: Logistics firms such as DHL have been able to expand their reach via drones. The ability to connect remote German islands in the North Sea has enhanced the remote locations with a more regular delivery service. Of course these drones are clearly flying outside of site lines of the operator.
These use cases are not necessarily replicable under the FAA rules. However I have to believe that as the technology continues to evolve the FAA will loosen its regulatory grip. So what could we expect from more open drone rules? If and when the drone rules become more open here are some opportunities that supply chains might enjoy:
  • Smaller window of delivery for certain items. Think of Kozmo.com with drones rather than people on bicycles. Companies from Amazon to CVS to Giant Eagle to Five Guys will be able to deliver a whole host of items to your door at the drop of a hat. Well maybe not that fast. But why couldn't books or other items from Amazon be delivered within the hour? CVS could deliver your prescriptions and Giant Eagle, your groceries, and Five Guys, your cheeseburger. Once drones become a more viable delivery extension of the supply chain, look for businesses to take advantage of the new reach this provides into the home.
  • Untethering the consumer from a physical address. Drones, coupled with the explosion of mobile, will allow delivery systems to ignore the limitations of roads and physical addresses. Today deliveries rely on infrastructure such as roads, as well as fixed addresses in order to manage delivery of goods. What happens when you have a drone that has far fewer restrictions? Couple this with a mobile device that provides the digital location of the recipient. Your mobile can send the drone the exact coordinates and the drone can then fly its way to your location. We will not longer have to worry about having a package delivered to our home or office; we can just tell it what time to deliver it to us as it hones in on our GPS coordinates.
I realize these changes are a ways off. But these are examples of how the supply chain will be expanded beyond the traditional links - loading dock, retail store to name a few. These types of digital disruptions will begin to turn our homes into an extension of our supply chains.

New Microsoft Gadget Gallery : Microsoft's Band Virtual Keyboard, Bike Tile And More Ffrom The First Major Update


Earlier today, Microsoft released an update for the Band and with it comes several new features like a bike tile and a virtual keyboard. This is the first major update for the Band since it was released back in October of 2014 and one that many have been waiting to arrive.

If you want to see the entire change log, you can view it here, but for consumers, the two big updates are the bike tile and the virtual keyboard. The bike tile, as the name suggests, makes it easy to track your bike rides much like you do with running.

The virtual keyboard is much more interesting as it allows you to respond to SMS messages from the band. With help from Microsoft’s World Flow technology, which predicts commonly used words and phrases, the keyboard on the Band is a decent implementation based on early feedback.

You can take a look the images below and thanks to @c1c2c3c4 for the keyboard images as my band is not showing the keyboard settings no matter how many times it has been reset or paired with my phone.

All four devices will be available in LTE and 3G variants. The LTE devices will sport metallic back covers, while the latter features patterned plastic back covers.

To keep up with the times and trends, LG kept the "selfie" craze in mind for the four new handsets, and tweaked its Gesture Shot feature, which recognizes gestures to initiate a countdown when taking pictures, to incorporate selfie sticks. According to the press release, the feature can now recognize gestures up to 1.5 meters away to make taking selfies with a selfie stick or monopod easier (Belfie sticks, anyone?).
The range also features LG's Glance View, which displays time, messages, and missed calls even when the display is turned off.

Juno Cho, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications, offered his thoughts about the new devices: He stated:

    "LG’s new mid-range collection continues our legacy of offering amazing smartphones at reasonable prices. For millions of consumers around the world, the deciding factor on which smartphone to buy isn’t how fast or how big it is but how balanced it is. With our new mid-range smartphones, more and more customers will be looking to LG for their next handsets.”

Information about the price of the new handsets has not been disclosed. However, LG has stated that rollout will begin this week in selected markets around the globe.
