Siri and App Store will make Apple TV a game-changer

Siri and App Store will make Apple TV a game-changer | Innovation in Developing Environments | Scoop.it

A new Apple TV set-top box is set to arrive this summer at Apple’s World Wide Developers Conference, according to a new report citing sources familiar with the situation.

The upgrade would represent a much-needed “significant overhaul” of the device, letting it go far beyond Apple’s current TV offering and crossing over into other areas such as music, apps and even home automation — with a nifty Siri-based interface, to boot.

Apple TV Transformed, Given Market-Killing Price of $99

Apple TV Transformed, Given Market-Killing Price of $99 | Innovation in Developing Environments | Scoop.it

The new Apple TV is tiny--palm sized, literally--and will cost just $99 when it goes on sale in four weeks. Jobs placed huge emphasis on ease of use, running from its wireless connectivity to its trademark simple Apple user interface, and no need to "sync" the device to anything, or store files on it since everything is streamed from the cloud.

For TV shows and movies, Apple's done a deal with ABC and Fox, BBC America and the Disney Channel (other studios will follow along, overcoming their reluctance at all this newness, Jobs joked) to bring streaming rented TV shows for $0.99. Movies will be available for a rental of $4.99, and Jobs promised day-and-date releases with DVD at that same price--the rental window lasts 30 days, but once you start watching the movie you can view it for a 48-hour period. As movies get "older" that price will drop even lower. There's also seamless integration with Netflix, giving access to all of its archive of content--all of which streams over the Web already.

Contextual Computing: Our Sixth, Seventh And Eighth Senses

Contextual Computing: Our Sixth, Seventh And Eighth Senses | Innovation in Developing Environments | Scoop.it

As mobile computing becomes increasingly pervasive, so do our expectations of the devices we use and interact with in our everyday lives. In looking at the advancements seen in computing technology in 2013, a few things are beginning to stand out, namely the idea of context based computing.

 

First and unsurprisingly, the desktop is no longer the center of the computing experience. Instead a variety of Internet connected peripheral devices are increasingly becoming central to our daily lives. These things can ranging from the wearable to the embedded, yet regardless of the form they take, they have begun to augment how we as humans interact with both our virtual and physical worlds around us. Thanks to recent advancements, in the near future, devices will able to see and perceive the world as humans do, providing a kind of contextual sixth sense. Yes, computers which are contextually aware.

 

Context awareness did not originate in computer science, the word “context” stems from a study of human “text”; and the idea of “situated cognition,” that context changes the interpretation of text, is an idea that goes back many thousand years. In terms of computing, contextual awareness was first described by Georgia Tech researchers Anind Dey and Gregory Abowd more than a decade ago. It is an idea that computers can both sense, and react based on their environment in much the same way our brain interpret various stimuli. Context aware devices are given information about the circumstances under which they are able to operate and based on rules, or an intelligent stimulus, react accordingly.

 

Although we’re in the earliest days, the future generation of connected things will become smarter, may anticipate our needs, and share our perception of the world so we can interact with them more naturally.  In a recent article published on fastcodesign, Pete Mortensen, a senior strategist at Jump Associates, described contextual computing as “our Sixth, Seventh And Eighth Senses.”

I never really liked the classic definition of boomers as those born 1946 to 1964. Its overbroad, and well, wrong. That age cohort should really end in
