Apple has done away with Google Maps for its latest operating system iOS 6, and come up with its own offering. The result hasn't exactly been smooth.
Probably a bit of an understatement, but most of the talk happened before the phones were even released. For those who say that Google is way better, try some simple routing in Auckland, say from a street in Newmarket to the bottom of town, say Halsey Street. Unless they have fixed it recently, the route doesn't make sense.
It appears that perhaps the mapping (programming by Apple using TomTom data) wasn't well tested yet before it was released....
By now, many of us are aware of the Leap Motion, a small, $70 gesture control system that simply plugs into any computer and, apparently, just works. If you've seen the gesture interfaces in Minority Report, you know what it does.
More importantly, if you're familiar with the touch modality -- and at this point, most of us are -- the interface is entirely intuitive. It's touch, except it happens in the space in front of the screen, so you don't have to cover your window into your tech with all those unsightly smudges.
To understand how subtly revolutionary Leap will be, watch the video ...
Share your Whiteboard Screen on Learner iPads/Androids with TeamViewer.
Basically a practitioner installs the free TeamViewer client on their computer and starts a meeting. Learners runs the free TeamViewer for Meeting app on their iPad/Android and then enters the meeting room code the Practitioner gives them. They can see the computer screen, and zoom and pan around it. But importantly, not interfere with what the practitioner is doing.
I går kväll kom beskedet om att Apples begäran om säljstopp i USA, för Samsungs surfplatta Galaxy Tab 10.1, gick igenom. Något som medierna här beskriver som en av Apples viktigaste segrar i patentkriget med Samsung.
The common theme here is that cloud computing has reached the consumer market in a big way now. If you're not using Dropbox, Evernote and iTunes Match (or any of their competitors), you are missing out on hassle-free online storage
I ett öppet brev ber nu Apples vd Tim Cook om ursäkt för den dåliga kartfunktionen i IOS 6 - och rekommenderar Nokia och Google som jag Father ben gjort hela 2000 talet-. Androidtelefoner och Nokia överlägsna då det gäller kartor och karthantering. Samsungplattor överlägsna iPad på samma sak ... :-) / rescooped från Lars E
SMART phones may be more pervasive, but it is tablet computers such as Apple’s iPad that are having a more profound impact in driving consumers into the digital world, according to a survey by mobile ad network InMobi.
Posterous Spaces was bought by Twitter earlier this year, but it appears to still be going strong and hasn't changed at all.
I have always liked is the ease with which users can create a group blog.
- allow people to make contributions to their blog by simply sending an email to "yourblog'sname" @ posterous.com.
- choose to moderate or not moderate those contributions.
Using the email method of contributing to a group blog is much easier than having to enter permissions for each person to contribute.
Practitioners also don't have to spend time walking learners through creating log-in credentials for another service.
It's got to be the quickest way to get a classroom full of learners contributing to one blog.
