Snip20130502_1

Google has updated its Google Search app to include a bunch of Google Now features, providing live weather and traffic updates, sports team scores, and plenty more…The iOS version of Google Now is embedded into the Google Search app. Google Now is about pulling live information from your Google account to provide you with relevant information for your day. This includes traffic updates based on your calendar, or sports scores based on your location. In the Google Search app, it does this by showing you various “cards” when you open up the app, and tracking your day over WiFi.

Beautiful!!! Enjoy

NFC – Near Field Communication

This technology allows  for simplified transactions, data exchange, and wireless connections between two devices in close proximity to each other, usually by no more than a few centimeters. It is expected to become a widely used system for making payments by smartphone in the United States. Many smartphones currently on the market already contain embedded NFC chips that can send encrypted data a short distance (“near field”) to a reader located, for instance, next to a retail cash register. Shoppers who have their credit card information stored in their NFC smartphones can pay for purchases by waving their smartphones near or tapping them on the reader, rather than bothering with the actual credit card.

It simplifies

  • File sharing
  • Electronic business card
  • Electronic wallet
  • Mobile payment
  • Parking ticket
  • Boarding pass…etc

Pairing is easy..not like Bluetooth or Wifi

This is the logo for NFC enables devices.

iPhone 5 might come up with NFC included devices in the near future. Persistent rumours and patent applications strongly indicate an NFC enabled iPhone is on the way, though there has been no official announcement yet.

The list of NFC phones available today

  • Google Nexus S
  • Samsumg Galaxy S II
  • Nokia C7 …Etc

NFC – its an ISO 18000-3 RFID compatible, Standardisation body is ISO/IEC, Network Standard is ISO 13157 etc, Network Type is Point-to-point, Cryptography not with RFID, Range <0.2m, Frequency 13.56MHZ, Bit rate 424kbit/s, Setup time <0.1s and Power consumption <15mA

Good luck!!!

Apple announce its new OS which is iOS5 for mobile/ipad platform..comming this fall…cool isn’t it?

Lot of new features going to get release with this platform and it is compatible with iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPod touch (3rd generation and 4th generation), iPad and iPad 2…

New feature like….

  • Notification Center: You get all kinds of notifications on your iOS device: new email, texts, friend requests, and more. With Notification Center, you can keep track of them all in one convenient location. Just swipe down from the top of any screen to enter Notification Center.
  • iMessage: With this you can send unlimited test message throug Wi-Fi or 3G from your iPad, iPhone or iPod touch to anyone with one of those devices. This apps built into the messages app, so you can send text, photos, videos, locations and contactss
  • Twitter: Integrated right into iOS 5… it even easier to tweet from your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. Sign in once in Settings, and suddenly you can tweet directly from Safari, Photos, Camera, YouTube, or Maps.
  • Camera: Now in iOS5, it integrates right onto the Lock Screen and you can take snaps instantly using the volume-up buttom and say “click”
  • PC free: New feature designed to be independence for all iOS devices. With iOS 5, you no longer need a computer to activate and set up your device…all you do is to connect your device wirelessly, right out of the box. Download free iOS software updates directly on your device. Do more with your apps — like editing your photos or adding new email folders — on your device, without the need for a Mac or PC. And back up and restore your device automatically using iCloud.

So what is this iCloud?? Its like a virtual Hard disk sitting on the cloud and when you sign up for iCloud, you get 5GB of free storage and it stores your content in the cloud. Your purchased music, apps, and books, as well as your photo stream, don’t count against your free storage. That leaves your mail, documents, Camera Roll, account information, settings, and other app data. With iCloud Photo Stream, when you take a photo on one device, it automatically appears on all your other devices. No syncing. No sending. Your photos are just there.

To get all these features, we have to patiently wait for this comming fall…if you want to get notified when iCloud is available, click here
