Casual Tech

You have to watch the demo above which is made by the CEO of a company called Swype, Cliff Kushler and Randy Marsden who are the founders of the company have worked on some successful input technology before but I truly believe this might be the next big thing for them

Like you saw on the video you only have to swipe your finger or stylus over the letter of the words and it gets on the screen with impressively low number of grammatical errors. Now this is apparently only limited to the speed that you can swipe, Mike claims that you can do up to 50 words per minute and I don’t think hes exaggerating.

This works on multiple plataforms from tablets to cellphones. I’ll let the presentation video speak for itself you have to watch it …Youll be blown away  I promise 😀

Did You Hear The News That You Are Dead?

Many of you may not now but Google introduced its browser with a comic that explained every features it includes. The image above is from a recent contest Gizmodo.com did and it has some pretty funny entry in the gallery just  click here to see them.

In other notes the world apparently proved to be stronger than many tought and failed to collapse under the ginormous pressure of the LHC that went live today. But this was just a small test, the real experiment starts on October so please try to enjoy life has much has possibly before reality bends :]

For all of you who don’t know about it Apple announced a special event for September 8, some days before that Microsoft had announced an event for that same day. Because of Apple tradition we know that this is going to be a iPod event and there are rumors that Microsoft is going to go head to head with Apple and announce something Zune related. Leaked photos of the new iPod nano and information about iTune 8.0 after the jump….Plus what you should expect from Microsoft event.

I saw this hotness a long time ago… I think just after the first iPhone had come out so it got lost in all the buzz and dint get the attention it deserved. This is the first Sony phone with Windows mobile OS in it and what a product came out of this collaboration.

The X1 sports touch screen support, from which comes one of my favorite home screen on any cellphone. Its called the Xperia Panel Interface its just like the customizable icons on your desktop but they look way more cooler on the high resolution screen of this phone and have some really nice effects that adds to the experience.

With a camera in front it has support for a feature some iPhone users wish they had, video calls. It also has a 3.5 mega pixel camera on the back thats comes with a App that lets you photoblog right from you cellphone not mention that you can actually take videos unlike the iPhone photo only camera.

If you slide it to the side it has a qwerty keyboard from where you can write all the text messages you please , according to some hands on reviews the Keyboard does not disappoint in quality. Lets not forget you can also read/write all you emails because it supports Push Email.

For your internet browsing needs you get mobile IE and absolutely fast 3G speeds, not to mention it also does Wifi whenever you get into a hotspot. Blog reading on the go wont be a problem because it includes an RSS feed reader right out of the box.

You must agree with me here. This cellphone has one slick design with some powerfull feautures to back up all its beauty, there’s only one thing Im not diggin  Windows mobile on it :S … I mean I cant say its really bad but its not the best out there. Sometimes I wish Apple would just distribute its mobile OS to other cellphone makers, oooh how I love you selfish Apple XD. Take a look at this Youtube vid which shows Xperia1 full beauty.

I sooo want one!

Google today officially entered the web browser market with its entry called Googles Chrome which you can check all details and download it here. I’ve spend the last two to three hours using the browser and visiting all the usual sites I frequent daily, so far I have had no inconvenience with anything. 

 

After three hours I miss all my favorite Firefox extensions/add ons, but at the same time that’s what I like about it. This browser feels simple,fast and stable , I have yet entered a site where it gets all slow and crappy. Read the rest of this entry »
