Maps HERE for ‘Samsung Galaxy, or how Koreans … –

Since Microsoft bought some Nokia mobile maps HERE become one of the key products in the portfolio of the “old” Nokia. It can be expected that the expansion of services will be quite fast and reaches the competing operating systems.

yesterday presented maps HERE Beta for Android, and actually so far only for devices Samsung Galaxy series. The company brings the best, that is, maps and navigation offline, after having download data for entire countries or continents. This is a significant advantage over solutions from Google, which has not proposed a real mapping offline, and save local fragments of maps is not working as it should. Searching the maps HERE we have a choice of transportation, public and pedestrians, and the system we propose three alternative routes. Being online, additionally get information about traffic, obstacles on the road and sync with our account HERE. The service will be available after the release of the Samsung smart watch Gear S, which also will use technology from HERE.

For more information about this solution can be found in the press release, but much more interesting phenomenon is the diversification of services by Samsung. Apple for quite some time trying to be decoupled from the application Google. Changed among other things, a base search on Bing and created their own maps, which replaced Google Maps. Samsung by playing with Tizen and strong interference in its overlay TouchWiz Android drew the wrath of the heads of Mountain View. The investment in the map HERE is another step towards independence. However, remains an open question – who needs whom more – Samsung Google or Google Samsung.

Project Wing – you will not believe what Google is testing two years –

Wing Project was disclosed by Google project, where for several years he has worked Laboratory X – department of the company, which is behind the glasses Google or self-tracking in cars.

The aim of the project is to create drone, which very soon will be able to reach a certain place and deliver a small charge. Google in its prospectus describing Wing Project highlights:

This has more to do with our autonomous cars than remotely piloted aircraft, which people play in the parks on weekends.

Drones to reach ( flying at an altitude of approx. 60m over hurdles) at the programmed location coping with obstacles and variable weather conditions. Same flight would take place – as is the case with Google car – without human intervention.

Google believes, of course, that creates another revolution. Drones are ultimately “make the world a much better place” – said in an interview with The Atlantic Astro Teller, who is responsible for the design expert Google.

largest Internet company in the world comes to his next project in a way that we already know. No rush. First, long work on the first prototypes, later tests (just underway in Australia). The next step is – the longer the specific results that can be shown – reaching agreement with the authorities. Sure is, after all, that no institution supervisor airspace not agree that just like that found hundreds of drones fly without any supervision. So Google has plans to consult with representatives of the government. It’s something completely different from the joke , which Amazon successfully attracted the attention of the media.

Google wants to be a pioneer in another industry. Everyone else probably would not dare to spend lots of money on something that is ahead of our concept of a decade or more. It may, however, prove that it is still working on what Google in the near future will be the norm and standard. This is all the more possible that today in different parts of the world drones already provide shipping.

Plan on September 9th Apple: iPhone 6 and iWatch? – Business Pulse

Apple tycoon on the market new technologies sent out invitations to the conference, which will be held on Tuesday, September 9 at Flint Center for the Performing Arts in Cupertino, California, near the company’s headquarters.

Time and place of presentation, moreover, are not accidental. Apple showed last year, two models of the iPhone 5S and 5C which is also the second Tuesday in September. This date optimal, because you can set up delivery before Christmas crazy shopper, when technological innovations spread like hot cakes. In turn, Flint Center for lovers of Apple almost cult place. The facility, which can hold 2.3 thousand. of Steve Jobs showed in 1984, the Macintosh.

we know the date, other details, as usual, are shrouded in mystery. On the new Apple probably all waiting. The company since the death of the charismatic manager Steve Jobs is still waiting for a new, breakthrough products.

news agency Bloomberg says that a few days Apple will show two new models of the iPhone, the gadget that generates the most profit. The smartphone will be available in two sizes: one will have a 4.7-inch screen and the other slightly larger in size 5.5 inches. If you check the forecast, it will be Apple’s answer to the growing popularity of larger smartphones.

Perhaps it will be a long-awaited and announced SmartWatch, a type of smart watch, which according to reports is to be called iWatch.

Samsung, Apple’s main competitor, as well as several other companies already have such products.

Apple has not entered into a new product category from 2010., When he first unveiled the iPad.

Fans of the brand watching for new products, and investors are a potential source of profit.

Project New Warsaw, Warsaw or returns to the shows –

For nearly two years a group of enthusiasts in the capital of Lower Silesia working on a new version of the Warsaw 223 Referring to the iconic communist owski vehicle, they want to create a fully modern luxury car, designed to restore the good name of the Polish automotive industry. For now, they managed to finish the 1: 1 model, which until September 17 in Wroclaw, you can watch Sky Tower shopping center. Work on the prototype is still in progress. talking to the originator of the project New Warsaw Michael Koziołek. At what stage are you?

Michael Goat: The most important is over . We finished model 1: 1, which already looks like a real car. Compared to what we showed some time ago in Poznan, an amazing jump. To make the model look like, spent almost four months of acute work after twenty several hours a day, sometimes completely without sleep.

Some say it’s just a model that does not drive. But we also have to seventy, eighty percent of a finite target vehicle. It is already inserted into it pięciolitrowy V10 engine is done the whole body, suspension, brakes – exhaust remake yet.

We are constantly working on the interior. We finished model it on the computer, then print them in 3D, on a scale of 1: 5. In this material we will work to then do not make the mistake in real interior. I think that in a month we will start the construction. When we’re done, it’s hard for me to say. We operate on a little chain reaction – one company that cooperates with us, you must finish a stage, so the game could enter the second. It may take us half a year, maybe four months. Do not hurry. We prefer to extend the period of production, the car came to an even higher level, so that at the time of the official presentation was a real show of Polish possibilities.

What do you want to attract potential customers?

Among other things, luxurious finish. Leather, wood and so on. Firing and certain functions in the car will normally be controlled by voice, the technology we have developed. We also want to install a camera that will watch everything that happens in the middle. It is possible that we combine it with the capabilities of an autonomous vehicle. Iron Zbyszek of our team has created the first such car in Poland. We will not itself be moved, because it’s not that, but certainly some features of this car move.

In the trunk you want to do some curiosities, such as drawer for shirts, which will be put forward from the floor pneumatically trunk. There will also be a good place for alcohol, in this case can not champagne, but on a national vodka to even more emphasize the Polish character (laughs). To this place the glass, humidor for cigars. We would like it to be a class by itself.

also think about adding to the car electric scooter.

This is a plan that would stand up with the rear bumper . This is a larger wrinkle, but there is a chance it will work. Recently jointly developed a scooter, who won the event in Barcelona Smart Moto Challenge, so we have experience in these matters. We thought about inserting a small scooter from behind to businessman could at any moment to pull it out and drive up the piece to work. It all depends on how much effort it will require from us. Already working for twenty, twenty-four hours a day. Check unfortunately, no longer continues.


Aurigidy in our evening sky – NEWSFix Magazine


In the coming days will begin its activity swarm Aurigidów that we will be able to watch up to 5 September – told PAP Assoc. Arkadiusz Olech Astronomical Center Polish Academy of Sciences in Warsaw.
Around August 25 dies known Perseid activity. “As a consolation for all observers meteor swarm remains Aurigidów, which starts its activity in the area on August 28 and ends September 5. This is not a swarm so well known and active as the Perseids, but he can show off explosions, where you can even see a few dozen meteors per hour, “- said the astronomer. Recent events of this type were observed in the years 1935, 1986, 1994 and 2007.

Maximum swarm activity usually falls around Sept. 1. It is no different this year, because I expected it exactly that day in the chair. 9 of our time. At this time in Poland is already the day, but at the same time it means that the second half of the night of August 31 to September 1 will be a very good time to observe.

To follow good layout encourages the phases of the moon. In the second half of the night, at the turn of August and September, Silver Globe is below the horizon and completely not interfere with the observations. What’s more, the radiant swarm shines above the horizon – the caller said the PAP.

Aurigidy at a maximum offer from 5 to 10 meteors per hour. This in itself is not a high value, but it is worth noting that they are part of the large swarms, which include the The September Perseids and Delta Epsilon Aurigidy, as well as a handful of weaker, less known or even waiting to be discovered swarms.

“In sum, in good conditions, we can expect that in this region of the sky dojrzymy up to 15 meteors per hour. Of course dojrzymy them only when well prepare to follow. We must choose a dark place, away from city lights, as well as adapted eyes to the darkness (time of about 10-15 minutes is enough, because our eyes + shifted + to night vision), “- said Dr. Olech. He added, trying to follow the strongly illuminated city will end the score at 1-2 meteors per hour.

Neptune in opposition. It is worth watching! – Polish Radio

Opposition astronomers call an outer planet setting in which it shines exactly on the opposite side of the sky than the Sun. – This configuration always creates good conditions for observation of the body being in opposition – says dr hab. Arkadiusz Olech Astronomical Center Polish Academy of Sciences in Warsaw. – It is located high above the horizon since around midnight, making his observations are the easiest.

In Wroclaw, recharge your smartphone at the bus stop. Good idea … – Gadzeto Mania

Wheel at the bus stop in Wroclaw is the first investment of this type in Poland. And, unfortunately, immediately begs the adage: first plums robaczywki.

At several stops residents of Wroclaw can succor your electronic equipment

The idea of ​​the paper is actually great. He dropped the phone, and we have an important conversation? Kindle exhausted and want to finish chapter before reaching home? Just a minute form and for a few minutes the device will definitely come to life .

Standing at the bus stop does not have to be idle. And besides, slowly catching up with the world. In Boston they have a bench that can charge smartphones, with us, in Wroclaw, saving stops.
However, there are a few “buts”. One must wonder the same location chargers – why not in the middle of the bus? So down to earth, it seems that would be more convenient if we could do when charging just sit there – the benches would be ideal. And so we have to bother and such. During rain exposed to dampness.

Do not immediately charger built in Wroclaw

surprised by the fact that at hand no cables , for example. permanently mounted. At once there is a counter-argument that someone might snatch it. Agreed, but if we are afraid that something will be destroyed, theoretically, we should not create. Vandals unfortunately missing ..

In the absence of cables suffer users, yet is about our comfort comes . With hand on heart – how often do you have at the wire in the charging? I never, and I suspect that most of the no. Anyway, drew attention to one of the commenters video, so it is not exaggerated the problem.

Yes, these are the details. We can be glad that the charger at all established (though not for long – it’s just advertising company, which will be liquidated on September 15), and for a moment we can enjoy the progress.

But I do not exaggerate in the other direction – Do not settle for just anything . If you have such a project is realized, let it be designed and manufactured so that any potential user will be happy with it and will use at any time. And not only when just at hand will be the cable. Progress so bungle – no

No, unless the idea is to promote a company. People will say, and that not everyone will use the charger? Well, what to try and take care of the details, once for two weeks, and so it disassembles

IFA 2014: LG G Watch R and Samsung Gear S – two different ideas for … –

LG G Watch R Gear S and Samsung have announced today, although their official launch will take place at the IFA in Berlin, which begin Sept. 4 (there will be a strong team – expect many relationship). This, of course, competitive products, although very different approach to the concept of a smart watch.

Lg G Watch R Fig. LG

LG G Watch R

The new LG G Watch R is the successor shown in June WATCH G Watch. It’s the “R” in the name probably means “round” or round. Because – at first glance – the main difference between these models. While the first SmartWatch LG looked a bit blocky, with so many new “R” is a watch that you can confidently wear a jacket and a shirt.

The screen is a circular OLED display with a resolution of 320×320 pixels. What does it mean when a round screen? Probably the wheel diameter in inches of 1.3. The screen is placed in a stainless steel housing, which is attached to a typical strip. Whole meets IP67 or is completely resistant to dust and can be submerged to a depth of 1 meter for 30 minutes.

Watch LG is based on Android and the Bluetooth connects to the smartphone. Then becomes his “extension” – informs about incoming calls or messages and connects to the network using the phone.

LG G Watch R is based on the Qualcomm Snapdragon processor 400, has 512 MB of RAM and 4 GB data storage. It is equipped with a position sensor, barometer and gauge the pulse. The whole is powered by a battery with a capacity of 410 mAh.

Illustrations that are presented are not photographs and images wyrenderowanymi watch. It can be expected that the face of the watch will not look as good as it is presented – the screen resolution may not be sufficient, so to accurately show details. How will, in fact we will see next week.

Samsung Gear S Fig. Samsung

Samsung Gear S

The watch shown by Samsung based on a different idea. While the LG G Watch R is almost entirely dependent on the phone so much and Samsung Gear S is the unit yourself connecting to the network. On the back wall is a slot for a SIM card, which allows the watch is practically independent phone. Of course, can still work with your smartphone, but it is not from him hooked.

Is this a good idea? In some situations, for sure. SmartWatch Gear from the beginning they were made with a view to practicing a sport. Gear S is ideal for running – no need to take along a large phone and we can stay in touch with the world (if anyone has such a need). Gear S allows both voice and messaging.

Samsung Gear S has 2-inch rectangular, curved Super AMOLED display. It works not based on Android, and Samsung’s own system – Tizen. What is interesting to pedestrian navigation using Nokia maps here, which is another departure from the Google system. It is equipped with an accelerometer, barometer and gauge the pulse. Processor with two cores clocked 1 GHz, memory is 512 MB RAM and 4 GB of data. 300 mAh battery having a watch to keep alive for two days.

Samsung introduced a very interesting handset – Gear Circle. This wireless headset connects to your phone or watch via Bluetooth. Headphones like a necklace or – as some prefer – collar. When not in use, they can be joined by magnets so that encircled his neck. We must also admit that Samsung’s Circle Gear as shown vividly recall a few months ago like handset released by LG.

Which approach is better – watch depends on your phone or yourself connecting to the network? It must be remembered that the latter requires a separate SIM card, so a second subscription or prepaid. Sure convenient to have a separate unit, but if the future of the Internet of Things is to rely on buying countless SIM cards, I see it in black.


IFA 2014: new smartphones and tablets from Archos –
