If Samsung Made An iWatch…

It would look something like this. The South Korean chaebol is obviously working on its own smart watch and so, if a set of leaked screenshots is anything to go by, then, it will have a 500-by-500 pixel resolution display. Lee Young Hee, executive vice president of Samsung’s mobile business, said that his company has been preparing the watch product for so long. He also confirmed that the watch is one of the products Samsung is actually getting prepared for the future. It is reported that Google is working on a smart watch project as well. It’s apparently being developed by the Internet giant’s Android unit and should act as an extension to the smartphones using that operating system. It is reported that LG is taking part in the smart watch craze, and that Microsoft is monitoring how the smart watch space evolves over time. Apple has also been claimed to be developing an ios-powered wearable device of its own, and relaying notifications and double as a fitness device. Daring Fireball’s John Gruber isn’t buying this theory. He thinks that the iwatch project is real, and confirms that Apple will release it shortly after the competing smart watches hit the Market. Then, if Apple makes more watches than it ships, it would be amazing, though, because next around of watches from all other companies will in some ways end up looking like versions of Apple’s. Another theory says that an iwatch could be a Code-name for a rumored standalone TV set from Apple. Indeed, the moniker could state in no ambiguous manner what consumers will do when they purchase the gizmo. Last but not least, it was reported yesterday that the iTV, which will come out either later this year or next year, will have a 4K screen...

The HTC One Is Not Really Repairable

iFixit is a reference for techies, this U.S. team dissects devices and gives repairability “notes”. These famous notes used to estimate the difficulty of repair – itself – a device malfunction. Today they are interested in HTC One, verdict: 1/10. As you know, the HTC One is designed with one single shell of aluminum, called “unibody”. The battery is inaccessible, as many “upscale” devices using finer materials such as aluminum or glass. Pink: power amplifier multiband. Yellow: Qualcomm PM8921 (energy management). Red: Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 quad-core 1.7 GHz. Orange: Samsung KLMBG4GE2A (32 GB flash memory). Blue: Synaptics (tactile Management). Green: Qualcomm MDM9215M (3G/4G modem). Black: connectivity (WiFi, FM, Bluetooth 4.0, etc..). As highlighted iFixit, HTC wanted to create a homogeneous product, no screw is visible. It will use a plunger to detach the glass and access to the screws, in addition to a heat source to “melt” the adhesive used. The rest does not really designed to be dismantled: foam padding, screws irregular, copper shield … the difficulties are numerous. You understand, do not start a battery change or a component replacement if you are not “sure”. You have been warned! iFixit...

T-Mobile announces today an offer in its range of mobile for April 12, the iPhone, the first for the U.S. operator. It has actually taken six years for Apple and T-Mobile to negotiate and reach an agreement.The fourth operator in the United States will change the way its “friends” work. The customer has two choices: Either they buy their brand new iPhone 5 for full price at once, or they pay $ 99 to get it, and then pay the rest in 24 monthly installments of $ 20. Again, the package is separate from the device; customers do not need to make a commitment of 24 months as do AT & T, Verizon or Sprint. For its part, the iPhone 4S will cost $ 69.99 with 24 monthly payments of $ 20, and the iPhone 4 will start for 14.99 dollars with 24 monthly payments of $ 20 again.

A Flaw In The Sony Xperia Z Can Unlock The Phone Without Entering The Security Code

The Sony Xperia Z receives “blows” : After the sudden death, security unlock screen can be easily circumvented. Everything seems to be working well for Sony earlier this year. After being the first manufacturer to release a new generation of smartphone in 2013, the Japanese has the ability to keep an eye on its competitors because HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S4 will not arrive until April. Despite the positive remarks this phone received, a problem was noted long time ago: The phone is affected by the sudden death, and so without giving any sign of weakness, the phone refuses to restart overnight. Sony was very fast because a hotfix is already being deployed. Today a security hole has been found and bypassing security implementation on the unlock screen. Just go into emergency call, dial the code *#*#7378423#*#*, select Service tests, and NFC, and finally NFC Diag Test.  All that remains is pressing the Home button and the phone will automatically display the desktop. The Security hole can not be changed, However,  a malicious individual can then access all data stored on the phone. Hopefully a patch is deployed very...

Here’s what happens: With full Screen, when you’re in full screen mode, the buttons are still present but in a very discreet way, and can be modified as desired (position, size and transparency). The following actions can be assigned to a button: Back: return within applications Home: shortcut to go directly to the Home screen Show recent applications: quickly switch between recently opened apps Restore the system tray: an action which reappear in the system tray with a simple click Open the application menu: easy access to the applications installed in the device Pie-Menu: Open the setup menu of the application What is the root?
