A small bit of information about Window 8

A lot of hype has been created around the latest operating system – the Windows 8 by Microsoft. Many people are terming this as an experience they have hardly had in the field of computers. However, as this OS still in its infancy, there are many things that need to be told from the scratch.
But before beginning, do you know that there are a couple of versions to Windows 8. It is designed exclusively for the touch screen use.

Here is a users’ guide to Windows 8.


You should be aware of the fact that Windows 8 has two versions – the Windows 8 and the Windows RT. Their visual appearance might not be too distinct from each other. However, both of them work on diverse processing chips. When on one hand Windows 8 runs on chips from Intel and AMD, the Windows RT can work on smaller tabs and on hybrids of laptop and tab.
Navigation for the new Windows 8
After you start, a picture greets you upfront. Swipe from bottom to top to go to the next screen. If you are using a keyboard or a mouse, just hit a key and you are done. The next screen shows the Mosaic of Live Tiles. They indicate an app. Windows 8 programs will run her comfortably.

To get back to the original screen, you can do so with a mouse or with a touch screen as well. If you are using a mouse, get your mouse cursor towards the top hand right corner of your screen and then do swipe it downwards towards ‘Start’. With a touch screen, swipe from the right side of the screen.

Though Apple stands out when it comes to Smartphones and has tasted success with iPhone 5, companies like Samsung still remain their biggest challengers.

Apple cannot hold the copyright for tablet; loses against Samsung

In an important ruling Apple has lost against Samsung an important copyright appeal over the design Samsung was accused of copying. The ruling could potentially put an end to the legal fight between the two giant firms that spread almost all across Europe. The fight was over the patent for Smartphones as well as tablets.
Image: osxdaily.com
The Court of Appeal in the UK did not reverse the decision taken by the High Court earlier that though there were some types of similarities between the designs of the phones by the two companies, the Galaxy Tablet from Samsung did not gatecrash the designs made by Apple because the Samsung products weren’t ‘cool’.
The decision stands for the entire Europe. So this means, there would be no legalities involved between the two manufacturers as far as the design is concerned for the European region. There were no comments from Apple as yet. That is not all. Apple has to also carry out ads in some selected newspapers as well as their web site that Samsung didn’t copy their designs.
There was enthusiasm in the Samsung camp saying that Apple wasn’t the first company to design a table that carried rounded corners to a rectangular shaped gadget.

According to the expert, the display of the Samsung Galaxy S III happens to be a bit thinner and is blessed with an improved color gamut. The key rival to Samsung Galaxy S III is the iPhone 5 and it looks like the Samsung gadget has easily overtaken the Apple phone.
It should be noted that the iPhone 5 has a 4” display, which is an improvement over it comparatively smaller iPhone 4S display. In spite of this, the Samsung has something more up its sleeve in the form of better specifications for the display screen.

Asus to bring out Jelly Bean update for the Transformer Prime

Asus is busy bringing out the updates for the Transformer Prime. The update includes the Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean). The Transformer Infinity is also ready for getting updates. However, it will get the updates after the Prime gets its share. The update includes the Google Now and will also help in improving the performance with Project Butler.
To see if the update is available or not, move towards the “About” part that you should find in the settings. Then select the “Check for firmware updates”. If you want to download and install the update, see to it that the tab is charged not less than 80% for a safe and secure installation process.

The Asus Transformer Prime made its way to India in March with a price tag of Rs. 50,000. However, as far as the Indian model is concerned, it comes only with Wi-Fi. It at the moment looks difficult for the company to launch a 3G adaptation.
Some of the highlights of the device are as follows:
  • The tab uses a 1.3GHz Nvidia Tegra 3 processor – it is the first ever quad-core CPU for any handheld device.
  • It comes with 1GB RAM.
  • The gadget has a 10-inch LED backlit display and a resolution of 1280 x 800.
  • There is the 8MP camera on the back.
  • Memory is expandable up to 32GB with MicroSD card.
  • For seamless data transfer, there is the Bluetooth with A2DP as well as a USB 2.0

Nokia brings down Smartphone prices before new launch

Nokia has been facing a horrid time in the market. And now as they are going to launch the Smartphone, they have decided to cut down on the prices already. The cut is expected to be anywhere between 10% and 15%. The prices will be brought down on the top two models in the Smartphone range.

The price cut is done in the hope of boosting the sales. The price of Lumia 800 was cut by around 15% and that of Lumia 900 by 10%. The price cut has been brought into effect for the European region. This month the company has already launched a couple of Lumia phones – the Lumia 820 and the Lumia 920.

Experts and buffs in the field take this launch as one of the most important for the company and feel that the very existence of Nokia is based on these two phones. However, the phones can be brought in the market only in November. That means the company has to make do with the older phones for the entire October, which might prove to be a challenging task.
Life has indeed been tough for Nokia. The company has lost as many as $3.86 billion in a year and a half. Moreover, Nokia also had to face tough competition from other companies and fell behind in the race.
