How many of you non-photographers out there even bother with a camera anymore? Smartphone photography is taking the world by storm. With faster speeds, more megapixels, better lenses and bigger capacity on our phones there remain few reasons to carry a camera. Yet becoming a professional photographer may not be totally possible with these handheld devices. Let’s face it, holding onto the delicate sides of your phone while trying to take quality photos does pose a challenge sometimes.

On the bottom you have micro-USB port for charging the controller and standard tripod too.  iOS and Android companion photo apps are available. Black/silver and silver/white/brown color options are available.And get that camera feel back into your photography.

Now, smartphones to act as secure and versatile keys

Washington: Researchers have developed a new software that makes the technology of opening car and home doors using Smartphone apps more secure and versatile.

“In essence, ShareKey offers two new functions: users can issue digital keys remotely and assign these keys certain user permissions.”

ShareKey sends electronic keys directly to the user’s mobile phone, in the form of a QR code attached to an e-mail or MMS.

“Recently, users of parcel stations have fallen victim to phishing attacks. Equally, hackers continue to target their efforts on smartphones. In light of this, the big challenge was to protect the electronic keys without compromising the intuitive operation of such devices”

ShareKey works using the Near Field Communication (NFC) transmission standard, which allows data to be exchanged wirelessly over short ranges of up to a few centimeters.

“To open a door, all you need to do is hold your mobile phone close to the lock”.

NFC interface and door locks only operate within a narrow bandwidth and have limited computing power.

Scientists at the SIT have equipped ShareKey with particularly resource-efficient communication protocols.

Electronic keys are reliably protected on the smartphone from malware and unauthorised access. This is achieved by leveraging advanced technologies which keep sensitive data on the smartphone separate from other data and apps.

Communication between the mobile phone and a central server is protected by established security protocols.

Finally “And even if this communication is hacked into, it’s impossible for unauthorised people to gain access to the digital key.”

Lenovo to release giant 27-inch ‘coffee table PC’

Dismayed that family members are spread out over the house, each with a separate PC or tablet? Lenovo has
something it believes will get them back together: a PC the size of a coffee table that works like a
gigantic tablet and lets four people use it at once.

Lenovo Group Ltd., one of the world’s largest PC makers, is calling the IdeaCentre Horizon Table PC the
first “interpersonal computer” – as opposed to a “personal computer.”

At first glance, it looks like a regular all-in-one machine in the vein of the iMac: It’s a 27-inch
screen with the innards of a Windows 8 computer built into it, and it can stand up on a table.

But you can pick it up off the table, unhook the power cord and lay it flat for games of “Monopoly.” It’s
big enough to fit four people around it, and the screen can respond to ten fingers touching it at the
same time.

As a tablet, it’s a monstrosity. The screen is the size of eight iPads stitched together, and it weighs
15 pounds. It’s almost as homebound as a flat-panel TV.

The Table PC will include plastic “strikers” for “Air Hockey,” and joysticks that attach to the screen
with suction cups for other games, including multiplayer shooter “Raiding Company.”

In a demonstration at the International CES on Sunday, photos and videos could be rotated with fingers.
Spreading five fingers at once on the screen cleared the screen of clutter, while squeezing them together
brought the photos and videos back.

Lenovo, a Chinese company that owns IBM Corp.’s former PC business, said the Table PC will go on sale
this summer starting at $1,699.

YotaPhone Dual Display Smartphone

Russian cell phone company Yota Devices will be introducing new YotaPhone dual screen Smartphone featuring a color and black and white side.

The YotaPhone dual screen Smartphone will be released in the second half of 2013. According to Yota Devices, the phone will have the regular colored screen while incorporating a second screen on the back of the mobile phone that is embedded with e-Paper. The second screen’s e-ink display will allow users to read newspapers, books and magazines more comfortably without the eyestrain of the battery drainage. The best part about the YotaPhone’s second display is that even when the battery does die, the contents that were being viewed will remain on the screen so users don’t have to worry about bookmarking or reloading images.

Lost a phone? Here’s what to do…

You can’t always be vigilant about your Smartphone. It might get misplaced, forgotten or even stolen. But don’t worry, there are tools to help you get it back, or at least salvage your personal data.

For Android 

Lookout is a nifty app that backs up your device data (contacts, photos, call history) and it even helps you recover your handset in case you lose or misplace it.

Install the app, create an account, and you’re set. After that, if you lose your phone or if it’s been stolen, simply head to www.lookout.com.

In the Backup tab, one click will copy and store all your contacts from your lost handset. When you first install the app, you can backup your device at that point itself, and even set intervals for automatic backups. If you have upgraded to the Premium version (for Android only, costing $2.99 per month or $29.99 per year), you can also backup your pictures and call history.

The Missing Device tab has a ‘Locate’ button to show the phone’s current GPS coordinates on a map. There is also a ‘Scream’ button to emit a high-pitched alarm tone from the handset. Premium users can also choose to lock the phone with a password, or wipe all the data on it remotely. Backed up data can be restored to the phone when you recover it, or to a new phone if you have the Premium version.

For the iPhone, iPad 

Set up an iCloud account, and download Find My iPhone from the app store. Turn it on in Settings > iCloud. You can then visit icloud.com at any time to get a GPS lock on your lost handset, send a message to it, play a sound, or remotely wipe the device.

If the iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch you want to locate is running iOS 6, Find My iPhone also includes Lost Mode, which locks your missing device with a 4-digit pass code. It then displays a contact phone number right on the lock screen. And while in Lost Mode, your device will keep track of where it has been and display its recent location history when you check in with the Find My iPhone app.

For BlackBerry 

Download BlackBerry Protect from the App World and set it up. It can wirelessly backup contacts, calendar entries, memos, tasks, text messages, browser bookmarks, Password Keeper entries and Wi-Fi profiles.

The Options menu will let you stop the app from being deleted through Deletion Protection, and you can even activate its location tracking from there.

If your device is lost, head to protect.blackberry.com to view its current location, make a sound or display a custom message on the home screen. You can also remotely lock the handset, change your password or delete all data from it.

For Windows Phone 

Just log on to the website www.windowsphone.com and in the dropdown menu of ‘My Phone’, sign in and click ‘Find My Phone’. Through the web-based menu, you can find the GPS coordinates of your handset, wipe all the data, lock the phone, and have it ring loudly.

Also, this feature, by default, saves the GPS location of your device every few hours, thus helping save battery to track your phone for a longer time.
