Microsoft Officially Unveils Windows 10; Skips Windows 9!

Sep 30, 2014 - 12:38 PM - by dgstorm

Even though this is obviously not Android news, it's still a surprising development in the tech world, so we thought it prudent to share it with you.

It looks like the folks in Redmond can still shock and awe from time to time, although this time it's really just a PR gimmick. Microsoft just officially unveiled Windows 10 to the public. You read that right... they are skipping the Windows 9 name and going straight for the next generation.

While the operating system is still the same thing they have been working on since Windows 8 was a big flop, Microsoft felt that the changes to the OS were so significant it was worth passing over the Windows 9 name. Ultimately this is just a marketing semantics stunt, but it definitely has our attention.

Even more notable is that the release has now slipped farther down the road. According to the report, Windows 10 will be released "later in 2015." Here's a quote with some of the details as to why Microsoft execs decided to go this route,

Yes, the company is skipping the "Windows 9" moniker. Why skip "9"?

"When you see the product in its fullness I think you will agree with us that it is a more appropriate name," [MS executive Terry] Myerson said.

Among other things, Belfiore said the company wants to focus on personalization, to make the Windows experience particular to individual users' tastes and preferences.

"We are trying to hit this balance in just the right way," [MS executive Joe] Belfiore said.

Starting Wednesday, Microsoft is launching a Windows Insider program and will release a technical preview of Windows 10 for laptops and desktops, with other devices to follow.

Microsoft will start talking more about the consumer experience next year at the company's developer conference in the spring, Myerson said. It expects to launch Windows 10 "later in 2015.."
What do you guys think of Microsoft's curve-ball to the media?

Asus Announces New MeMo Pad 7 and Zenwatch Android Wear Smartwatch

Sep 03, 2014 - 7:46 AM - by dgstorm

Before the big Samsung event kicks off in about ten minutes, here's a quick IFA update from Asus. They just announced a couple of new products. The first is their new MeMo Pad 7 which will now have a full-HD display.
Here's the full spec list: Intel Atom CPU, a 64-bit quad-core Z3560 clocked at 1.83 GHz, 2 GB RAM, 16 GB internal memory, microSD slot that can accommodate 64 GB cards, 5 MP camera at the back, 2 MP shooter at the front and 16 GB free cloud storage.

It will be available for 199 (about $260), and will be offered in red, gold and black color variations.

The other device they shared is the Zenwatch Android Wear smartwatch. You can check out the video above for a teaser. Not too many details were revealed regarding this device, but it will sell for 199 Euros. There's no word if Asus plans to bring it to the US.

New 7-Inch Intel-Powered Asus Tablet Stops by the FCC

Aug 05, 2014 - 9:27 AM - by dgstorm

Intel has had a hard time competing with Qualcomm when it comes to chipsets in mobile devices. Of course, that isn't going to stop "Chipzilla" from trying, and their latest offering just showed up in a 7-inch tablet as it stopped by the FCC offices for its certification testing.

The tablet in question will include the Intel 64-bit Moorefield processor called the Atom Z3560. It's a quad-core processor running at up to 1.8GHz. It also will sport the following specs:
  • IPS LCD with a resolution of 1200 by 1920 pixels
  • 5MP camera on the back and a smaller one on the front
  • The usual smattering of Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and GPS
  • 16 or 32 gigabytes storage space

Several questions remain. First, will this be an Android tablet? Also, if it is, will it be a new MeMo or will we see another Asus made Nexus 7 (perhaps called the 2014 Edition)?

What do you think it is?

John Woo Makes Games Now Too! 'BloodStroke' in the Google Play Store

Jul 29, 2014 - 10:18 AM - by dgstorm

There's a stylish new action game for Android available on the Google Play Store, and it is supposedly a game from famed movie director John Woo. It's called BloodStroke and sells for only $0.99 at this moment. Your character's name is Lotus, and she is a private security and combat specialist who has been betrayed by her employer. Here's a quote with a description,

Legendary filmmaker John Woo presents his action-packed mobile debut, Bloodstroke.
Gun in one hand, a blade in the other, Private Security Agent, Mai Lee codenamed Lotus, shoots and slices through the street of Hong Kong and Beijing to ensure the safety of her first assignment.

This app offers in-app purchases. You may restrict in-app purchasing using your device settings.

"Bloodstroke is a terrific action game." Touch Arcade, 4/5

"Compelling, fast-paced, and action-packed, Bloodstroke is the perfect time-killer" 148 Apps, 4.5/5

"Bloodstroke is a bloody and beautiful good time." Gamezebo, 4/5

ANY MEANS NECESSARY
Protect Dr. Koorse at all costs! Draw enemy fire and use a selection of lethal melee weapons and guns to keep gangsters, snipers and katana-wielding bikers from assassinating your client.

PAINT THE TOWN RED
Equip Lotus with an arsenal of deadly blades and firearms. Cut down your foes using dual chackrams and blow them away with grenade launchers and shotguns to decorate the streets of China with red ink.

ARTISTIC ACTION
Blending traditional brushstroke visuals with John Woo's signature balletic violence, Bloodstroke is authentically presented with distinct graphics and sleek comic book panel cut-scenes that unravel into a compelling tale of betrayal.

[Rumor] Asus Planning to Launch Affordable ($99-149) Smartwatch This Fall

Jun 27, 2014 - 10:01 AM - by dgstorm

According to the latest intel out of Taiwan, Asus is planning to fire a direct shot over the bows of the other Android Wear smartwatch competitors, LG, Motorola and Samsung. Supposedly, they plan to offer a new Android Wear smartwatch in the Fall of this year, but at a highly competitive price, between $99 and $149. This would be a significant discount compared to the Samsung Gear Live at just $200 and the LG G Watch at $225.

Of course, it's also worth noting that by that timeframe rolls around, we might see price drops from these manufacturers as the competition heats up and more devices start flooding the market. The only detail shared regarding Asus' smartwatch offering was that it would include an AMOLED screen, just like the Samsung device, and possible movement and voice controls.

What do you think of Asus' chances of breaking big into this emerging market? The only thing left now is to find out what HTC has cooking.
