Kings Cross, Sydney, 29-June, 2012

Aust over 20 years since I have last visited Kings Cross. Finally I managed to visit it again. It is much safer and cleaner now.

iPad Mini to be thinner than Google Nexus 7 and new Apple iPad (iOS, repair, unlock, Auckland, Takapuna)

Apple’s as-yet unofficial ‘iPad Mini’ will be substantially thinner than the regular sized iPad, schematics for cases purportedly intended for the next-gen slate suggest.
Think iOS has got its hands on some drawings of a third-party case for the iPad Mini, courtesy of unnamed sources in China, revealing some impressive dimensions for oft-rumoured but hitherto unseen device.
iPad Mini leaked case drawing
According to the leaksters, the iPad Mini will be 200.13 mm (7.87 in) tall, 134.73mm (5.3 in) wide and a staggering 7.3 mm (0.29 in) thin.
By way of comparison, the new iPad is 9.4mm (0.37 in) thick, while the iPod touch is 7.2 mm, which corroborates rumours that the iPad Mini will be ‘almost as thin’ as Apple's touchscreen music player.
It also means the tablet is considerably slimmer than Google’s recently unveiled Nexus 7, which comes at 10.45 mm (0.411 in) in depth – making Apple’s effort a more attractive option in the portability stakes.
Although it’s not revealed how much the tablet will weight, we’re thinking it will be broadly in line with rival seven-inch slates, possibly slightly heavier if it rocks an aluminum body like its older siblings.
Specs are still hard to come by but if you place much faith in analysts' forecasts, it will sport a 7.85-inch display and possibly the same dual core A5X processor as the new iPad. However, it’s unlikely to feature Retina resolution or even a rear-mounted camera.
A more svelte iPad could seriously scupper the charge of smaller, cheaper Android slates - even though it’s unlikely that Apple will be able to undercut the competition in price, which is likely to sit somewhere in the region of $299 (£299).

Software, Intelligence, Sharing, Greatness and Enhancements.

The Application uses a Natural Language User Interface to Answer Questions, make Recommendations, and Perform Actions by delegating requests to a set of Web Services.

Smart Stay
Samsung Galaxy S3 - Smart Stay
One of the other big-hitting features Samsung is talking about is the ability to Track your Eyeballs to make sure the Display Stays Lit when you're looking at it. In theory this should mean that you can keep the Screen Timeout to a minimum of Fifteen Seconds and then Never have to Worry about it Turning Off. A little Eye Icon ( EyeconAppears in the Notification Bar when it's Tracking your Peepers. It waits till you're Asleep, the Screen maintains a bright Display as long as you're looking at it. 
In practice it works around 75% of the Time, even in Bright Light it can sometimes still Turn Off the Display, despite the icon Showing up. In fact, the Icon can Pop Up even when you're Wearing Sunglasses - so it's hard to trust it.

Smart Alert

Smart alert takes the Motion Sensor in the Phone and Sends you a Vibration Notification if you have any Notifications that you haven’t Cleared yet. What is most likely happening here, if the phone picks and chooses what notifications to tell you about via Smart Alert, there is likely a White-List of sorts that allows you to set notification type for Smart Alert.It knows when you've been away from your phone: a vibrating nudge lets you know that you have missed calls or messages.

Samsung Galaxy S3 -  Home Button
The Home Button has also been Elongated, although the same Menu and Back Buttons remain from the Prequel.The Button Design around the Phone has been well thought, as for a Phone this big it's very difficult to make all the Keys Accessible, so putting the Lock Button on the Right Hand Side rather than the Top makes a Large degree of Sense.

The Volume Up and Down Button is Parallel to the Lock key on the Left Hand Sideof the Phone, and also within easy reach when Holding the Galaxy S3 in the Hand.

Cell Phone News Update: The Next iPhone Could Deal A Crushing Blow To Samsung’s Android

Not only did Apple silently stare down Google during their WWDC 2012 Keynote by releasing a new Maps app and better Siri integration, they also mentioned an app which will give them even more ground in the ongoing smartphone wars.

Passbook was announced as a sort of digital folder for electronic tickets, such as boarding passes, movie tickets and even Starbucks cards. Using location technology, the app will know where you are, pulling up your movie ticket when you arrive at the theater. The app makes for a very slick demo, to be sure.
 

But such an announcement stumbles upon Apple’s insane levels of secrecy and can be seen more of a nod to the future rather than a complete, finished product.
Apple intentionally made no mention of the next iPhone, focusing mostly on software and one new piece of hardware. The closest they got to acknowledging the new iPhone was announcing an iOS 6 release date.
 

Each of these new apps—Maps, Passbook, even Siri can be seen as new at this point—will be available in iOS 6 and built to take full advantage of the next iPhone. As such, what does Passbook say about the next smartphone?
Some analysts and Apple observers are suggesting Passbook will also work with Near Field Communications (NFC) technology, something found in nearly every smartphone rumor for the past 3 years.
 

Google has been making a push towards an eWallet which will allow users to do away with cash and cards and simply rely on their devices as form of payment: A convenient notion, but also more than a little unsettling.
 

Android’s latest flagship phone, the new Samsung Galaxy S III, features NFC and works with Google’s Wallet functionality. Google has yet to gain much traction in the eWallet field, however. As such, only Sprint’s version of the Galaxy S III has the NFC feature built in.
 

In fact, the Google Wallet feature works in a similar way as Passbook, collecting digital tickets and stubs in one location to be easily called up in a moment. When paired with NFC, Google Wallet can be used to make a payment by simply tapping the device on a “PayPass” enabled device.
As they often do, Apple took a few minutes to brag on themselves, boasting their astronomical app downloads and subsequent payouts to developers. Tim Cook also made a point to mention Apple has 400 million accounts, each with a registered credit card. These Apple ID accounts are the only way to register new devices and make purchases through either store, allowing every user the ability to give Apple their money by simply tapping a button and typing in a password.
This kind of sheer brute strength could send Google packing if and when Apple gives the nod to Passbook, allowing it to not only display your tickets, but also purchase them as well.
 

In fact, Apple has already been using similar technology in their stores, which have become extremely beautiful and profitable test labs for features such as these. With the new Apple Store App, a customer can walk into any Apple store, find the iPhone case, headphones or MagSage charger they require, scan the barcode with their phone, input their password and walk out of the store unmolested. Your iPhone is associated with your Apple ID, which is associated with your credit card. When your phone connects to the Apple Store Wi-Fi network, it turns this feature on and brings everything together to allow for beautifully simple payments.
 

Until this point, the big news in iPhone rumors was the adoption of a 4-inch screen and a retooled design. Now, it appears as if the real big news about the next iPhone will be the ability to (finally) make payments with your iPhone. If this comes to pass, Apple could have one very large leg up on Google and Android. Now, we have only to wait until “this fall” to see how things play out.
