LTC-07

Leawo Tunes Cleaner is super easy to use. While it did have problems with my Mac based iTunes Library files, this IS after all, a Windows app. When dealing with simply the songs in question however, the app was stellar. It was able to correctly identify the songs in question, and then see that they were, for example, missing art work. Leawo Tunes Cleaner identified the appropriate artwork and then pulled it down. However, when I tried to apply the changes to the song files, the app refused to do so until I purchased a license. So, you get a trial, but you don’t get to save any of the changes.

A phone worth keeping

pbAbout a week ago, a colleague of mine wrote an article about what’s the right phone to choose when you want to buy a new phone. I think that he was right, but a different concept that I found on the great world of internet, and truly, is just a concept, made me think about a totally different design and idea about how we can choose what phone we want and how to make that phone to be perfect for each human being. We all are different and we all want something special, just for us. Of course, even in this concept, you probably won’t have a completely unique phone, but that won’t be a problem.

The concept is called Block Phone, and as you can see in the video, it would be an extreme upgrade to all we knew so far about electronic devices. First of all, we all know that the electronic devices, as you can see in the video, are not made to last…the technology is advancing so fast, and the devices that yesterday were the ultimate generation, tomorrow will quickly be left behind by the newer amazing ones. This is making the electronic waste the biggest ever of the modern world.

The components are customizable and upgradable! So, you won’t need to buy a complete new phone, you will be able to upgrade just the part of the phone that you want! Display, processor, battery, camera, wifi, memory, etc… Exactly how you can see in the video, all the parts.

Well, for the moment is just a concept, but I really hope that it would be under development in a short time. This for sure will open many doors for the electronic industry, and we will reduce the electronic waste. In my opinion, it’s a win-win situation for all mankind…well, maybe except for the big companies. But I still hope the leaders of those companies are human.

iPad 5 Rumors

With the release of the iPhone 5C and 5S out of the way, thoughts now turn to Apple’s iconic tablet line…

28-Apple-logoThe world changed in January 2010 with the release of Apple’s Magical Device, the iPad. Since then, it’s taken the world by storm, recreating and redefining the personal computing market. Traditional PC sales are on a steady, marked decline and have been for a few years. Google and their supporting hardware partners have been introducing look a likes and similar devices hoping to capture their piece of the pie. Depending on the hardware partner, they’ve been met with varying levels of success.

With the release of iOS 7 now firmly completed and the iPhone 5C and 5S have been rolled out to varying levels of interpreted fanfare, nearly everyone in the iDevice camp is seriously wondering what’s going on with the iPad. Here’s my take on what to expect.

Release Date

I haven’t seen anything yet on a definitive date. However, if Apple stays true to its rev cycle with the iPad, it’s likely we’ll have one well before Black Friday (traditionally, the day after Thanksgiving, in the US) in November. This will insure that everyone has a chance to have another stellar iHoliday giving season.

Unfortunately, there’s nothing definitive or at least reasonably speculative out there that would help us narrow it down to October or November of 2013. However, it is reasonable to assume that an announcement should be forthcoming if Apple wants to make the 2013 Holiday Buying Season.

Price

Apple is famous for pricing new product iterations at the old price points so think $499, $599, $699 and $799 for the 16GB, 32GB, 64GB and 128GB Wi-Fi versions, respectively. However, the iPad 2 is expected to be retired with the release of the iPad 5, so they’ll need something else in the $399 spot. Whether this is the iPad 3 or the iPad 4 is still unknown. However, the iPad 2 has done very well in that spot.

Hardware Changes

Screen

The iPad 5 is supposed to have a GF2 touchscreen supplied by either LG or Sharp, which should make the display up to 23% thinner than previous touch screens.

Processor

The iPad 4 had an A6X processor in it. Unless there’s a new “X” version of the A7, you can expect the A7 chip – the same chip is in the iPhone 5S – in the iPad 5.

Bezel

The screen size is changing. The screen is supposed to have a thinner bezel on two of four sides, making for a wider screen.

Case
The iPad 5 is supposed to be thinner and smaller than the iPad 4. I don’t know if the new screen has exactly, near, or about the same visible area as the screen from the iPad 4; but it’s going to be close.

So, in short, smaller, faster with either a wider or same size screen.

Wireless Charging

This one was pretty cool and comes at least in part – or at least people firmly in the Microsoft camp will argue – from the pages of the Surface 2 and Surface 2 Pro playbook and it’s Power Cover. There are rumors that Apple is working on a wireless charging method for its Smart Covers that would enable them to charge an iPad when closed. How this might happen is open to debate; but the most credible idea has the cover TAKING power from a plugged in iPad, and then GIVING it power when it was unplugged.

Unfortunately, this rumor got publicized early this year and hasn’t seen much more press or discussion since then. You’re going to have to file this under, cool to have, but probably unlikely to happen.

The one thing about Apple watching that I hate the most is that it’s very difficult and not the most accurate activity either. While most of this is culled from information I’ve been able to dig up on the internet, so, please take this with a grain of salt, but I think that the information here is supportable. Hopefully, we’ll hear more in the coming days. Stay tuned to Soft32 for more information as it comes available.

Tenorshare Android Data Recovery

android-data-recoveryBUN Recover lost data from your Android smartphone with this must have Windows utility.

More than half of all the smartphones in the world are Android smartphones. Until the iPhone 5 came out last year, I was using an Android phone. They are really that good.

The biggest problem with having an Android or any smartphone is the protection of your data. Lose it, and you could be out of luck. That’s one of the reasons why applications like Tenorshare Android Data Recovery is so very important. It’s a Windows desktop utility for your Android phone.

Sometimes it can really suck when life happens. We rely on our smartphones to do a lot – phone book, appointment book, notes, memos, and on top of that, music player, video consumption device as well as digital still and video camera. That’s a lot to ask of from any device, let alone one that gets dangled over every public toilet you see because you stick it in your shirt pocket. You can avoid a lot of this – except the Evel Kenevel dangle of death out of your shirt pocket – thanks to Tenorshare Android Data Recovery.

You can get back ALL of your data – Contacts, photos, text messages, appointments, etc. – including all of these plus call history from just about any Android phone or tablet, including those from Samsung, LG, Motorola and HTC. It also works with every version of Android…ever.

The best thing about the app, though, is that you can review data, and selectively recover just what you need. You can mark lost files and then make sure you get them back.

TADR-03

If you’re looking for a decent Android utility, this may be the first place you should stop. There are different setup requirements based on the device you have, so you should look here for specific instructions.

The biggest issue with Tenorshare Android Data Recovery is that your device MUST be rooted in order for you to be able to recover any data besides photos and videos. This is somewhat problematic for individuals who aren’t comfortable with rooting or able to do it due to work restrictions, even with one of those automatic rooting tools.

However, if you do have a rooted device, and you’re looking for a way to backup and recover data, this is an excellent choice.

Microsoft needs a new CEO and Blackberry is for sale…

So, is Apple happy-happy-joy-joy? Not sure yet, but they might now get a small leap forward…

Business Leaders Gather In Detroit For The National Business SummitBallmer’s closing speech was a bit emotional, exiting the stage on the Dirty Dancing soundtrack, Time of my life. That’s how he would describe it’s time spent as CEO at Microsoft. And of course, he added that this song best describes his experience there and the promising future of the company.

Well, about the future.  It’s a thing that I have to admit, made me curious. It’s well known that Microsoft, and Blackberry are fairly well behind Apple and Samsung, and that, I think might be caused by the need of humans to get mobile with most, or quite with all of their devices. What they have forgotten about, is human nature. The human nature is always oriented to follow the easy path and the eye-candy is just not enough sometimes. We will choose, at a moment, the things we can afford, and of course those things that will make our lives easier. That’s why most of us have in their pockets or in their bags a device that is replacing many, many old devices, into a single device.

I’m guessing that Microsoft thought that what they’ve build will last forever, because where there’s a computer, there must be a Windows. And that was so…once upon a time. Let’s face it, Windows 8 and the Surface tablets didn’t caught the public’s attention. First of all, may be the price, but also the new UI in Windows 8. So, there it goes.

About Blackberry, as you can read here, it’s for sale, and it seems that they already have a buyer. I really hope that they will change the strategy. Holding on an OS that is quite obsolete, doesn’t seem to be a good plan. I know, they were focused on the business department, but that department embraced for already a long time ago the iOS and Android platforms. Simply because the human nature wanted to have easier ways to complete the daily tasks….on the bus.

GBU

In my opinion, the same happened with Nokia… They hold on very much on their Symbian OS, until it was almost too late.

I can’t wait to see who will be the next Microsoft’s CEO, and what company will invest their money to save Blackberry. And of course, we all can’t wait to spend our money on their new high-tech devices in the future.  And a good step, besides eye-candy design, cool features and hardware, it would be to develop many applications for their OS, no matter what OS they choose.  An OS without many applications and games is simply…boring. Let’s hope we’ll see all the Blackberry devices with Android, and Windows devices with a decent OS, where you can install anything you would have in your Windows Desktop PC, at a good price! Let us be…human.

What Microsoft and Surface 2 Forgot to Address

Microsoft Surface 2 is a decent update to the tablet and ultrabook hardware platform, but doesn’t address all of the issues. Let’s take a quick look

 

Introduction

Microsoft’s first foray into the tablet space didn’t fare too well. Windows RT and Surface RT are largely misunderstood. Now, with the introduction of Surface 2 and Windows 8.1, Microsoft is hoping to come closer to giving the world what it really wants. I’ve given you an insight on what Microsoft has done with the introduction of Surface 2. However, no one really knows what need Windows RT is supposed to meet in its current form, largely because the ARM based OS is still Windows or at least Windows branded. Surface 2 should be a decent upgrade to Microsoft’s Windows showcase hardware. Let’s take a look at what they did and where it might still fall short

 

Cost

As I mentioned previously, Surface 2 will start at $449 for the 32GB version. Surface 2 Pro will Start at $899 for the 64GB version, with 128GB, 256GB and 512GB versions available. The latter will cost a cool $1799. Clearly, Microsoft did NOT get the message on tablet cost.

All of these costs are completely out of line for this type of device. I’ve got a bit more on this in the Hardware Confusion section, below. My guess is that the sweet spot (at least as far as storage is concerned) will be the 256GB model. I doubt that Microsoft will sell very many 512GB Surface 2 Pro devices. It’s just too expensive for a tablet.

In fact, the entire tablet line is about 2x-3x more expensive than it should be. Microsoft had a huge opportunity to change its position and stance on tablet pricing with the introduction of Surface 2, and it totally missed the boat. They’ve already taken a huge $1.0B charge for unsold Surface RT tablets.

Lowering the entry point for Windows tablets should have been a priority for Surface 2. Unfortunately, it wasn’t. Surface 2 should have been priced no higher than $249 for the entry level device. The entry level Surface 2 Pro device should have been priced at $349. Pricing for the 512GB version of Surface 2 Pro should have been $999. Period. Pricing at these levels would have made Surface 2 much more attractive than it currently is, and could have made some of its short comings more forgivable.

Mobile Broadband

After I got my Surface Pro and saw that it didn’t have a SIM card slot, I wondered what Microsoft was thinking in making their top of the line, highly anticipated enterprise ready tablet Wi-Fi only. I decided to go to a local Microsoft Store and ask one of the associates for their take on the issue.

To make a long story short, their take was that Surface RT and Surface Pro were already late to the market. Redmond knew this, and instead of going through the additional 18-24 months of engineering and wireless certifications that would be required for a mobile broadband device, the decision for a Wi-Fi only device was justified. I give the kid top marks for a great fish story; but I’m not buyin’ what he’s sellin’.

Microsoft knows that both Apple and almost any Android tablet manufacturer produce both Wi-Fi and mobile broadband compatible tablets. If they could see far enough down the product pipeline to get their ducks in a row, then Microsoft should have found a way to get the job done.

The time is way over for lame excuses. You can’t tell me that with Microsoft’s connections, lobbying power and available cash they couldn’t find a way to fast track mobile broadband certification for LTE versions of both Surface RT and Surface Pro.

Microsoft is indicating that an LTE version of Surface 2 WILL be available; but won’t be around until Q1 2014 at the earliest. That’s way too late. What the heck has MS been doing since the introduction of Surface RT and Surface Pro? Why haven’t they been working on this since then with prototypes or samples in testing with all 4 major wireless carriers?

It’s easy to blame Ballmer for this, especially since he’s the lame duck CEO; but this is another HUGE ball that’s been dropped. It’s also going to add an additional $100-$150 to the cost of each storage sized version of Surface 2 and Surface 2 Pro, which again, is wrong. The devices are already way over priced; and cellular radios are cheap now a days. What would be cool is if this turned out to be modular and something and end user could snap internally into the tablet; but that won’t happen either…
