Facebook’s paper app


I just experienced the new Facebook iPhone app “paper”, and it was an amazing experience. Techies add their pros and cons in their respective blogs, but my opinion is this app is much better and best working compared to other newsfeed apps like Flipboard, etc… Firstly this app is not available in apple store India, I’d to create an US store apple ID and then download it to my phone, and it worked.

So if you are desperate to put your hands on this app, even before it releases out of USA, you can create a fake apple ID with all details specific to USA and download the app from here

Paper app gives a brief introduction when you open the app for the first time, and after adding few of your interesting news categories, you are good to go and explore the news feed in a new and advanced GUI. I used iPhone 5 and I had a smooth experience, but I guess with iPhone 4 there might be some slowness, I have to test that sooner or later, because after started using iPhone 5 things are different when comparing my experience that I had with iPhone 4.

Some of the snap shots of the app below.

Small cubes that self-assemble


Known as M-Blocks, the robots are cubes with no external moving parts. Nonetheless, they’re able to climb over and around one another, leap through the air, roll across the ground, and even move while suspended upside down from metallic surfaces.

Inside each M-Block is a flywheel that can reach speeds of 20,000 revolutions per minute; when the flywheel is braked, it imparts its angular momentum to the cube. On each edge of an M-Block, and on every face, are cleverly arranged permanent magnets that allow any two cubes to attach to each other.

Gold iPhone 5S vs 50 Cal #ThroughGlass Google Glass

The iPhone 5S, stylized iPhone 5s, is a touchscreen-based smartphone developed by Apple Inc. It is part of the iPhone line, and was released on September 20, 2013. Apple held an event to formally introduce the phone (and its mid-range counterpart, the iPhone 5C) on September 10. Like the iPhone 4S, the 5S is a revised version of its predecessor, the iPhone 5, but also incorporates a 64-bit Apple A7 processor and a built-in fingerprint sensor called Touch ID on its updated home button.

The 5S ships with iOS 7, the seventh version of Apple’s iOS mobile operating system, which is based on the concept of direct manipulation, using multi-touch gestures. Interface control elements consist of sliders, switches, and buttons. Interaction with the OS includes gestures such as swipe, tap, pinch, and reverse pinch, all of which have specific definitions in the context of the iOS operating system and its multi-touch interface. New features in iOS 7 include Control Center, AirDrop, iTunes Radio, and a new flat design directed by Jonathan Ive.

Reviews for the iPhone 5S were generally positive; some reviewers called it the best smartphone on the market. While Touch ID was praised as a major market changer, many commentators believed that iOS 7 was the most major update to the smartphone line. The 64-bit Apple A7 was also favored. Pundits claimed that it is a catalyst for various new applications from developers.

iPhone 5S Teardown Round Up


We’ve been seeing spoilers of Apple’s latest iPhone for months, but that didn’t stop the excitement of getting our hands on one. We sent our co-founder to Australia to get it first look at the new iPhone 5s. This is an “S” version, which means its speedier, more secure, superior OR similar to it’s predecessor in form and function. Well whatever it stands for, we want to see what’s inside! And the teardown begins…

iFixitYourself does great job posting this video about Tearing down iPhone 5S, it just shows the mystery behind iPhone 5S hardware and architecture. This might be an interesting stuff for techies who love to explore iPhone 5S inside out.

I just got the update to iOS 7 option, it is official now, the new version is out, I am just going to update it on matter what the consequences I will face. I saw lot of blogs saying wait for the update till minor fixes are done or do things before updating. I don’t care about those, I am not a lame user of iPhone, I enjoy this technology.

Below is the list of timezone when the iOS 7 will be available, I am going to update the new version now and update my comments in another post.

iOS 7 release date


iOS-7

I am eagerly waiting for iOS 7 release today and excited about my hands on it. It is officially and unofficially told that the new updated and much more interesting iOS version 7 is releasing today September 18 2013. Fingers crossed that it is true and releases for iPhone 4, 4S, 5 and new version of iPhone also.

Definitely there will be some group of people getting ready to make their funny jokes and comments on the version, but who cares until Apple continues to make better and interesting releases. I will also join the group once I feel that someone had overtaken Apples innovations, probably/hopefully Phoneblocks.

I can see more updates coming on for all the applications that I use with my iOS 6.1.3, with a message that the updates contains new UI for iOS 7. It is a good sign that iOS is going to be available shortly today. I guess some of them are already able to download it.

Aquaskipper (Aqua skipper)


This is a cool invention that I would really like to add to my gadgets, since I love water sports and any activity that makes me stay in water.

Source from Wiki

Flapping wing propulsion devices are hydrofoils that generate propulsion by forcing a foil to move up and down in the water. The forward motion of the foil then generates lift as in other hydrofoils. A common design consists of a large foil at the stern that is used both for propulsion and keeping the passenger above the water, connected to a smaller foil at the bow used for steering and longitudinal stability. Riders operate the vehicle by bouncing up and down on a small platform at the stern, whilst holding onto a steering column.[4][5] It is started and landed from the shore, or preferably from a dock, and requires a bit of experience. When moving too slowly, it will sink, and the range of possible speeds is 9–30 km/h (5.6–19 mph; 4.9–16 kn)
