January 28, 2011 - Blu-ray Players'd better to cut price down

Moreover in their initial days Bluray players by Samsung were priced as high as $1000 in 2006, which means that if $39 prediction is true then the drop in price will be about 2500 percent. Unbelievable! Moreover, it is also indicating that we would be able to buy bluray players cheaper than today's prices of some Blu-ray titles. 'Star Wars: The Complete Saga (Episodes I-VI)' is priced at hefty $89.99 and for Shrek: The Whole Story (Shrek / Shrek 2 / Shrek the Third / Shrek Forever After) you need to shell out $40.49.

January 28, 2011 - When SONY PSP VS Apple iPod touch

Sony's inclusion of a variety of input methods on the NGP: gamepad, capacitive touchpad, touchscreen, analog sticks, gyroscope, accelerometer and dual cameras seems to reflect a growing desperation from the company. It appears that Sony, after watching the iPhone and iPod touch chip away at its market share for years, decided on an awkward marriage of the intuitive touch and motion controls of iOS with the legacy gamepad and analog stick controls from its previous PlaySation products. As with the PlayStation Portable and the PlayStation 3.

January 27, 2011 - Blu-ray Players Price may Go down on 2011

Blu-ray firmly won the format war against HD-DVD, and now it looks like it's poised to become the household replacement to DVD players (Copy Blu-ray to DVD). In fact, they might be bundled alongside televisions (which are also dropping in price), making their proliferation even more pronounced. Seems like so long ago that they hit the scene. Time to update my Betamax, because this news gives even more weight to Fure's argument for everyone to buy Blu-ray players. Learn to Rip Blu-ray to MKV..

January 27, 2011 - More movies on Apple TVs than iPads from Netflix Streaming

Apple TV connects to user's HDTVs directly, making it easier to watch hours of content without the potential for interruption, while iPad users are more likely to check their mail, play a game, or have their device commandeered by a spouse or child before they can finish a full length movie. Netflix noted that iPad use is "also-growing," and that its iPhone app is also "very popular," although the most popular devices for using its service were identified as being ones with "large installed bases," specifically Windows PC and Macs, the Sony PS3 Microsoft Xbox 360, and Nintendo Wii.

January 27, 2011 - Verizon iPhone, iPhone 5, iPad 2 get more hope from Qualcomm

Qualcomm also makes application processors like the ARM Snapdragon used in the HTC Droid Incredible, but is facing stiff competition from Nvidia's Tegra family (used in the Zune HD and many Android tablets), Texas Instrument's OMAP 3 and 4 series chips (used in Motorola's Droid X/Pro/2 phones, and RIM's upcoming PlayBook tablet), Samsung's Hummingbird (in the Galaxy S smartphone line and Galaxy Tab), and Apple's own A4 design (used in iPhone 4, iPad, and Apple TV), which is also manufactured by Samsung.

January 26, 2011 - RIM PlayBook is not easy to bypass Apple iPad

The survey, performed by Royal Bank of Canada Capital Markets analyst Mike Abramsky earlier this month after the Consumer Electronics Show 2011 in Las Vegas, indicates that buyers aren't simply attracted to tablet hardware specifications alone. RIM's strongest card with its new PlayBook is the promise to deliver dual core CPU performance via its newly acquired QNX real time operating system. However, a major factor of the iPad's success wasn't hardware features but rather its familiarity with iPhone and iPod touch users and the third party developers building apps for it.

January 26, 2011 - Microsoft Broadened Trial time of Office on Mac OS

In contrast to smaller developers such as Pixelmator, which have embraced the new Mac App Store enthusiastically, Microsoft (along with Adobe) hasn't released any titles through the Mac App Store yet. It has released Windows Live Messenger and Bing search apps in the iOS App Store, in addition to the new iPhone OneNote, a note taking component of Office for Windows that hasn't ever been ported to the Mac.

January 25, 2011 - Blu-ray makes sights and sounds richer

WHAT A TREAT to view this classic Steven Spielberg film in HD! For those who haven't seen it in years, I defy you to have dry eyes by the end. There's no question about it. "Purple" is a major tearjerker but Spielberg surely does sentimental better than any other modern director. The cinematography is terrific with locations, sets and period details that are remarkably varied and rich. Watching on Blu-ray Player, every actor, object and background pops in deeply saturated color. The soundtrack is crisp and clear with songs that can fill a room.

The test studied readers between ages 18 and 32, and had them view print and iPad versions of advertisements featured in a past issue of a digital magazine. Participants were asked to rank their perceived interactivity, engagement, message involvement, attitude toward the adds, and purchase intent. Participants ranked ads in each category from a score of one to nine. Interactive ads on the iPad carried a purchase intent significantly higher than their static counterparts.

January 25, 2011 - Production of Apple's iPad 2 to begin in February

EnjoyChina's Commercial Times reported Monday that iPad 2 production will begin in February in a "small pilot." But the company's shipments for the second quarter of calendar 2011 are expected to grow significantly, and may even exceed the peak seen by the first-generation iPad in the fourth quarter of 2010. If true, the report would contradict earlier rumors that pegged partners to begin production of the iPad 2 in January. Still, a February production date would keep the device on track for rumors of an April launch.

January 24, 2011 - Sony BDP-S570 Review: Flexible Blu-ray Player Reduce HD Quality?

At first glance, the Sony BDP-S570 Blu-ray player seems perfect: It costs a reasonable $225. It prepares discs for playing in record time. It incorporates a video search engine and plays Internet video from a multitude of sites. It's 3D-ready (via upgrade). And it lets you send everything to your HDTV in the source's original format. But when we assessed the BDP-S570's image quality against that of other Blu-ray players we've tested, our enthusiasm evaporated.

According to DigiTimes, Apple has more than doubled the number of iPad 2 printed circuit board suppliers from three to seven. Apple reportedly recently added Compeq Manufacturing, Gold Circuit Electronics, Meiko, and Nan Ya PCB to the mix. The companies are expected to begin shipments of any-layer high density interconnect boards in "small volumes" between the end of February and early March. The report indicated that Apple plans to begin "mass shipments" of the next-generation iPad in April, marking one year after the first-generation tablet launched.

January 21, 2011 - Sony will Cut down PS3 Pirates by using Blu-ray Serial Keys

Citing "a very reliable source," the site outlines a new serial-key authentication process whereby Blu-ray disc games would be paired to PlayStation 3 units, authenticating against Sony's servers. The site adds that each serial key would only be usable up to five times. Kind of like Sony's PlayStation Store, then. As I understand it, you can download something from the PlayStation Store as many times as you like, but only activate it on up to five discrete PS3s.

January 21, 2011 - Apple iPad sales slamming hard drive makers

Because most conventional PC products use hard drives, the growth of iPad at their expense is both depressing hard drive demand and creating excess supply, an issue that threatens to shift production and investment away from hard drive technologies and toward flash RAM storage. In the meantime, Apple also benefits from more favorable component pricing in its devices that continue to use hard drives, including iMacs and most MacBooks, which are differentiated enough from iPad to prevent a cannibalization problem.

January 21, 2011 - New Photo Stream and iPad FaceTime App move to iOS 4.3

"Photo Stream uploads and stores the last thirty days of your photos on MobileMe and downloads them to all of your devices," according to text appearing in iOS 4.3 beta 2. Apple previously offered a feature in iPhoto called photocasting, which allowed users to share an album with friends via an email link. Once shared, the album would appear in their iPhoto source list and stay updated (as new photos were added) via an RSS feed, similar to a podcast.

January 20, 2011 - Opera browser added on Sony Bravia HDTVs and Blu-ray players

Sony and Opera, the web browser traditionally associated with mobile devices, have teamed up on a scheme to put the latter's software onto the former's Bravia HDTVs and Blu-ray players. The network-connected hardware would support some fledling Internet standards as a result, such as HTML5, HbbTV and OIPF. At the same time, it would offer users an option other than the Google TV platform that's being embedded into some Sony hardware.

January 20, 2011 - It's too hard to Believe high-res screen in iPad 2

"Retina Display" on the next iPad, as reports have suggested the device could have a 2048-by-1536-pixel resolution, quadruple that of the current iPad. But, he said, sources have told him those rumors are "too good to be true." He said it's likely that the next iPad will retain a 1024-by-768-pixel resolution, though the display may be improved in other ways, such as brighter with less power consumption.

January 19, 2011 - The Hole Blu-ray review

Even without the benefit of 3D Bluray technology, The Hole looks marvellous on Blu-ray (Learn to Backup Blu-ray to PC Hard drive), the high definition image doing proper justice to Theo van de Sande's cinematography, and lending its own sense of depth to the inky void of the trapdoor in the basement. Sadly, the disc's extras aren't anywhere near as sparkling as the film itself, with a brief 'making-of' documentary that amounts to little more than a synopsis of the main feature.

January 19, 2011 - Apple Rule over iPad competitors Android OS

Jobs comments appeared to be directed at Samsung's Galaxy Tab and Dell's Streak, two of the more visible Android tablets that became available last year. Cook also echoed Jobs' sentiments on 7 inch tablets from RIM and Android licensees, saying "you wind up having the size of a tablet that's less than reasonable. Or one that's not even a real tablet experience. It's a 'scaled-up smartphone.' That's a bizarre product in our view."

January 19, 2011 - Apple's iPad Rules Q3 2010 tablet PC market share

The "media tablet" market, as defined by IDC in its report, includes 5 to 14 inch tablet-shaped devices with color displays and running "lightweight operating systems (such as Apple's iOS and Google's Android OS)." This definition excludes eReaders, most (but not all) of which use monochrome E-ink displays, and also excludes "tablet PCs" (uncapitalized in the report), which the firm defines as running "full PC operating systems" (Windows) as well as being "based on x86 processors,"

January 18, 2011 - Magazine worry about Apple iPad subscription deals

In a story profiling the apparent frustration of publishers with the iPad, The New York Times notes that the ongoing development of a new application subscription feature through Apple's App Store was apparently the reason The Daily, a new tablet-only newspaper from media giant News Corporation, was delayed from an anticipated launch this week. "It is expected that magazines will eventually have an arrangement similar to the one News Corporation has with Apple that allows for iPad subscriptions," author Jeremy W. Peters wrote. "But no such deals have been struck yet with Conde Nast, Hearst or Time Inc., said people close to discussions with Apple that were intended to be private."

January 18, 2011 - iPad 2 screen will give public a glimmer

The alleged iPad 2 LCD screen sells for $218.19 from Globaldirectparts.com, as noted by MacRumors, though the part is currently out of stock. Since the website currently offers replacement screens for the original iPad for $63.35, the higher price of the so-called "iPad 2 screen" could possibly corroborate reports of a higher-resolution display on the second-generation tablet. Apple will reportedly quadruple the number of pixels on the iPad with a 2048 x 1536 resolution when it launches a new model, expected this spring.

January 17, 2011 - Sony Foresee 2011 Portable Bluray Player

The company's also using this opportunity to announce three integrated home theater systems (BDV-E780W, BDV-E580, and BDV-E280), as well as a 5.1 channel home theater audio system (HT-SS380). Each of the models play back DVD, CD, SACD and Blu-ray, but the real star of the show is the BDP-SX1000. That is Sony's first-ever portable Blu-ray Disc player, which features a larger-than-average 10.1" WSVGA display, support for broadband connectivity, and access to BRAVIA Internet Video services including Video on Demand and Music Unlimited, not to mention Netflix, Hulu Plus, Slacker, YouTube and Pandora.

January 17, 2011 - iPad 2 is Planning to quadruple pixels as 2048 x 1536

Last summer, iPhone 4 doubled its screen resolution in both directions (from 320 x 480 to 640 x 960), resulting in four times the pixels and an industry-leading pixel per inch density of 326. Apple called the new screen the "Retina Display," because it exceeded the typical resolution of the human eye, making individual dots all but impossible to discern. The original iPad offered a 1024x768 resolution (at 132 ppi), leading many to guess that the next version might also get a similar Retina Display. However, a 300+ ppi display covering a 9.7 inch screen would require a fantastically high resolution.

No matter how you got your CES 2011 - whether you read about it on Digiarty, watched snippets on TV, or went in person - you know that 3D Blu-ray was the big news of the show. Like it or not, it's what all of the major companies are pushing. Some companies are making the 3D move more forcefully than others.

January 13, 2011 - Compare Bluray and DVD - Is Blu-Ray an Inferior Format to DVD?

Let's put aside the technical arguments for a moment, and simply ask: does the pleasure of watching Blu-Rays outweigh the potential annoyances? I love watching Blu-Rays, but there's a reason why much of my Blu-Ray collection languishes on my shelf. The players aren't up to snuff and the speed with which the discs load is terrible. Blu-Ray has killed the "casual watching" that I used to enjoy on DVD, where I could pop in a disc, skip the menus, and be up and running within seconds. With Blu-Ray, it frequently takes 30 seconds just to turn the damn thing on, let alone load a disc and slog through the difficult-to-skip trailers.

January 13, 2011 - Behind Apple-Verizon iPhone cooperation?

One of Verizon's top engineers worked at Apple's campus, helping the company learn CDMA technology, and McAdam himself even personally tested the new Verizon-compatible iPhone before it was announced on Tuesday.

In calendar year 2011, Abramsky expects Apple to sell a total of 70 million iPhones, which would account for 19 percent of the global smartphone market.

January 12, 2011 - Google Chrome no more using H.264 video but switch to WebM

According to Google's product manager of Chrome Mike Jazayeri, the company will be "focusing our investments in those technologies that are developed and licensed based on open web principles," at least when it comes to WebM VP8 and Theora video codec Google released after acquiring On2 last year. That effort excludes support for the ISO's MPEG 4 H.264 codec, which is commercially licensed by its pool of patent holders. Google is apparently not exercising the same principles when it comes to supporting Adobe Flash, which unlike H.264, is completely proprietary to one company rather than being administered by a standards body.
