iPhone che prepara il caffè e la pastasciutta [FOTO]

iPhone è sempre stato sinonimo di smartphone tuttofare, sopratutto grazie al supporto delle milioni di app presenti nell’App Store. C’e’ un’app per tutto e tutti citando pubblicità piu’ o meno note dello smartphone di casa Cupertino. C’e’ un’app per trovare parcheggio, c’e’ un’app per elaborare foto, per fare la spesa, per trovare l’anima gemella.
Se vogliamo prepararci un caffè o una pastasciutta? Esiste un’app? Non lo sappiamo di preciso ma sappiamo che esiste l’iPhone stesso per il caffè e la pastaciutta.

Da quanto riportato da NetEase e poi ripreso dal sito M.I.C. Gadgetla polizia cinese di Wuhan ha incrociato una partita di oltre 500 iPhone tutti marchiati da Apple China Limited che possono fare caffè e pastasciutta.

Come vediamo dalla foto il problema è che non si trattava di smartphone, ma di fornelli a gas con il logo della mela morsicata e con il nome dell’azienda.

Naturalmente questi dispositivi difficilmente posso opsitare il sistema operativo iOS ma sicuramente posso fare il caffè e la pastasciutta. i prodotti sono stati sequestrati perché privi di garanzie di sicurezza. Ma se questi fornelli iPhone fossero entrati sul mercato? Volete dire che qualcuno li avrebbe spacciati per smartphone?

Indipendentemente dall’accaduto questi sarebbero stati i primi iPhone in grado di fare il caffè e la pastasciutta.

Google Doodle per Gioacchino Rossini festeggiato dalle rane

Nel Google Doodle di oggi 29 febbraio 2012 delle graziose rane vestono i nobili panni della lirica e omaggiano il 220° anniversario della nascita del compositore Gioacchino Rossini. La sorpresa non finisce qui: il Google Doodle visibile in tutto il mondo è tutto italiano, è stato disegnato dagli studenti del Liceo Artistico Mengaroni di Pesaro, la città natale del compositore, che hanno inviato il progetto a Mountain View. Il Doodle è piaciuto così tanto che Google ha quindi deciso di mostrarlo al mondo intero (guarda come appare Google in Francia, oppure negli Stati uniti e Regno Unito).

Ma perché proprio le rane? Nei paesi di lingua anglosassone gli anni bisestili vengono chiamati leap year per indicare il salto temporale che il 29 febbraio prevede per il riallineamento del calendario gregoriano al movimento astronomico del pianeta. To leap in inglese vuol dire saltare, e quindi quale miglior simbolo delle simpatiche rane? Già nel 2004 e nel 2008 gli anfibi furono protagonisti dei Google Doodle.

Il Google Doodle di oggi non è dedicato solo al giorno in più dell’anno bisestile, ma soprattutto all’anniversario della nascita del grande compositore italiano Gioacchino Rossini, come già Google ha fatto con altri celebri compositori italiani come Nino Rota . Cliccando sull’immagine la ricerca si aprirà proprio sulla chiave di ricerca “Gioacchino Rossini”, mentre la didascalia è “220° anniversario della nascita di Gioacchino Rossini / Anno Bisestile“. Insieme alla raganella pianista e alla soprano salta durante l’acuto, vengono ricordate due delle principali opere, quali il Barbiere di Siviglia e infine l’ultima ranocchia è vestita esattamente come il Guglielmo Tell.

Windows 8 Consumer Preview: download disponibile

Questo pomeriggio in occasione del Mobile World Congress di Barcellona Steven Sinofsky (Presidente delle divisioni Windows e Windows Live di Microsoft) insieme ai membri del suo leadership team engineering hanno presentato l’attesissima Consumer Preview di Windows 8, di fatto la versione beta di quella che sarà la nuova versione del sistema operativo Microsoft che si promette di essere un Windows totalmente reinventato.

In questi ultimi mesi sono stati diversi gli screenshot e le informazioni più o meno volutamente trapelati, Microsoft stessa ha tenuto in piedi un “devblog” con tanto di immagini di preview, quello che sapevamo da tempo era della presenza dell’interfccia METRO, vero e nuovo filo conduttore di tutti i sistemi operativi Microsoft che con questa interfaccia punta ad unifromare l’esperienza degli utenti sia dal punto di vista desktop che mobile. Se fino ad oggi Microsft era il grande assente nel segmento tablet, con Windows 8 tutto questo sta per cambiare.

Per tutti coloro che hanno Windows 7 installato sul proprio PC Windows 8 è a un solo click di distanza, è già infatti possibile scaricare il nuovo sistema operativo direttamente in formato ISO sia per architettura a 32bit che a 64bit, la volontà di Redmond è quella di far direttamente toccare con mano quello che è il lavoro di questi mesi e prendere familiarità con la nuova interfaccia direttamente a coloro a cui è destinata. Rispetto alla Developer Preview sono oltre 100 mila i cambiamenti apportati al codice sorgente il che rendono Windows 8 oggi molto più vicina alla versione definitiva.

I requisiti minimi per l’installazione di Windows 8 nono sono per niente lontani da quelli della versione 7, processore ad almeno 1 GHz, 1 GB di memoria RAM e 16 GB di spazio sul disco fisso per sistemi 32 bit, oppure 2 GB di RAM e 20 GB su disco per quelli a 64 bit ed una scheda video in grado di supportare la tecnologia DirectX 9 di Microsoft. Caratteristiche hardaware di certo abbordabili per molti il che evidenzia ancora maggiormente la bontà del nuovo Windows 8. Ma ora basta parlare, è il momento di scaricare dal link messo a disposizione da Microsoft!

Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (10.1) hands-on (video)

As far as product launches go, the 10-inch Galaxy Tab 2's debut was relatively discreet. Announced with little fanfare, it's not even on display in Samsung's booth here at Mobile World Congress; you'll have to talk your way into a private room if you want a shot at getting hands-on.

And we can see why: with a 1280 x 800 display, 1GHz dual-core processor and 3-megapixel rear camera, its specs are nearly identical to what you'll find in last year's Galaxy Tab 10.1. Sure, it has a redesigned back cover and ships with Android 4.0, but otherwise, it's the same tablet. But with the new Galaxy Note tablet replacing the original 10.1 as Samsung's premier 10-inch tablet, the new 10.1 could be the budget-friendly option its predecessor wasn't. So does it hold promise as a mid-range tab? It'll be impossible to say until we know the price, but watch our hands-on video after the break and decide for yourselves just how much you'd pay for this thing.

Joseph Volpe contributed to this report.


Hardware

We guess Ice Cream Sandwich adds a few calories, because the 10.1 has expanded in size from 8.6mm to 10.5mm thick, putting it roughly on par with the new Galaxy Tab 10.1 Note. (That's a jump from .33 to .41 inches, for all you Americans reading this.) If you do a side-by-side comparison, the difference in thickness and weight (588g vs. 565g) will be obvious, though on its own it still registers as relatively thin (it's no Thrive, anyway).

Flip the device over and you'll see that Samsung has traded the first-gen's semi-glossy white plastic for a matte silver cover. As fond as we were of the old design, we're pleased this budget tab doesn't pick up any fingerprints, and seems fairly resilient to scratches too (imagine how many hands this lone pre-production model has passed through!). Either way, the build quality hasn't changed: it feels well-made, though not as premium as the various aluminum tabs we've been testing. Then again, the Galaxy Tab 10.1 is no longer a premium device, and based on some conversations with Samsung PR, it sounds like it won't be priced like one either.

Need more proof this isn't a high-end device? The proof is in the product tour. Around back, you'll see Samsung's removed the LED flash that used to accompany the 3-megapixel rear shooter. Suffice to say, a different approach to cost-cutting than removing the camera altogether, which is precisely what Acer did with the 10-inch Iconia Tab A200.

But! Samsung did add a microSD slot this time around, which seems like a perfectly fair trade for what wasn't a great camera setup anyway. At the entry level, the tablet comes with 16GB of internal storage, with the higher-end configuration packing 32GB.

Otherwise, the list of sockets and buttons should be completely unsurprising: Samsung's proprietary charging connector, a 3.5mm headphone jack, a volume rocker and a power / lock button There's also a SIM slot and 3G radio, which supports HSPA+ (850, 900, 1900 and 2100MHz) with theoretical download speeds as high as 21 Mbps.

Display

The display, too, should ring familiar to anyone who's handled the original 10.1. You're looking at a 1280 x 800 PLS panel -- the same one used on the first-gen 10.1, as well as the 10.1 Note. Though it can't compete with the non-pentile Super AMOLED Plus display crowning the Galaxy Tab 7.7, it's still quite bright, and the viewing angles are suitable enough that we were able to watch YouTube videos with the tablet placed flat on a table. Likewise, you should be able to rest it on your legs while watching movies, though darker bits (say, the dim audience in an Academy Awards recap) might be tougher to make out.

Software and early performance impressions

Inside, you'll find 1GB of RAM and an unnamed dual-core 1GHz processor. (Samsung won't confirm it's the same Tegra 2 chip used in the original 10.1.) In our brief hands-on, we found the tablet was nimble enough at opening apps and responding to swipes, though it stumbled when we fired up the browser. As you can see in that video up there, scrolling through pages is a stuttering affair. Expect some jagged rendering when you pinch to zoom, too.

Software-wise, you're looking at Ice Cream Sandwich (4.0.3, to be exact), with Samsung's TouchWiz UX skin layered on top, of course. Sammy hasn't made any significant changes to the UI recently, so we'd encourage you to check out our reviews of the 7.0 Plus, 8.9 and 7.7 to get a better feel for the customized interface.

Outlook

The new 10.1 will ship in the UK starting in March, and will later make its way to an untold number of other markets (ignore that part in the video where we say we know nothing about availability -- yours truly just misspoke). For now, we don't know the price, and it's also unclear which countries will get a choice between this and the higher-end 7.0 Plus. We're also waiting to test battery life, and all that. Still, with the 7.0 Plus going for $300 in the US, we're cautiously optimistic the 10.1 could be quite affordable. If that's the case, this could be quite the contender in the budget 10-inch category

Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0) hands-on (video)

It's easy to get confused by the variety of 7-inchers coming out of Samsung's gate; you might even speculate that the category is getting a bit crowded. But with the arrival of the Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0), it appears the popular Android manufacturer has an ace in its sleeve. The slate leaps past its cousins with the latest build of Ice Cream Sandwich out of the gate, although it still reps the same 1024 x 600 PLS TFT display, 3MP rear camera, 4,000mAh battery and dual-core setup. We had a chance to get a real feel for the tablet, so join us after the break as we parse through our initial impressions.

If you've ever held any of Sammy's previous 7-inch slates, you'll immediately notice that this iteration is a bit thicker. It's unclear exactly why the Tab 2 (7.0) sports a slightly fuller 10.5mm waistline as compared to the Plus' 9.96mm, but it's by no means a deal breaker. Certainly, the device is well-crafted and much thought has gone into how it rests in the hand. With a smooth, matte plastic enclosure that sidesteps the collection of smudges, 12.2 ounces (345 grams) and its curved edges, you likely won't experience much fatigue when holding onto the unit for long stretches of time to consume video or carry on an extended Gchat.

Much of the design incorporated into the Plus remains the same here, as covered slots for microSD and SIM cards take up the left side of the device, power and volume hard keys are relegated to the right, the 3.5mm headphone jack sits up top, while the proprietary charging / connector port lies surrounded by dual speakers at the base. There are a few downgrades where specs are concerned, as you won't find the same 2 megapixel camera up front; here, it's VGA. And that dual-core processor (of which, Sammy won't specify) powering this TouchWizzed Android 4.0.3 affair is clocked at a lower 1GHz and buffered by 1GB RAM. Again, that's a step down from the Plus's 1.2GHz CPU, but the difference in performance is hardly noticeable. In fact, overall navigation throughout the UX is fluid and unfettered.

As we just mentioned, touch recognition on the tablet is exceptionally responsive -- most notably when utilizing the software keyboard and scrolling through web pages. As for the browser, we noted that full desktop sites loaded fairly speedily, at just under 15 seconds and evincing no lag or stutter. Pinch to zoom was similarly brisk, though there is a bit of delay for images to re-render. The only performance quirk we noticed had to do with the unit's accelerometer, which had a hard time registering the change in orientation from portrait to landscape and often required abrupt movements to be triggered.

All told, it's a solid product and one that should make for a smart purchase when it hits the UK this March in 8GB / 16GB / 32GB versions, although at the wrong price point that summation could reverse itself. Our only concern is that without the massive marketing support currently bolstering other Sammy devices (the Note 10.1, for one) consumers will certainly have a hard time discerning the appreciable differences between this 7-inch line and the Galaxy Tab 2 might not get the attention it deserves. The end result? This fab tab might get lost in the clutter.

Nokia Drive 3 teased at MWC with commute alerts via live tiles (video)

When the folks at Nokia took us aside and asked if we'd like a preview of the latest features slated for Nokia Drive, we knew something good was in store. Our intuition wasn't wrong. The next version of Nokia's navigation software will focus on commutes -- aiming to make the daily chore easier by learning driving habits, identifying regular trips and providing users with live tile updates that estimate journey times and traffic flow. Nokia Drive 3 will automatically query this data 30 minutes before an established commute is expected to begin, and will also provide drivers with suggested quicker routes to their destination. The traffic data is gathered both from traditional navigation sources and other Nokia Drive 3 users -- we're told this latter bit is completely optional and, while the privacy policy is quite explicit, the company insists it doesn't personally identify users.

Nokia tells us the software interface isn't finalized, so what you see in the Flash demonstration may change before Nokia Drive 3 arrives in the coming months. You'll find a demonstration of the new My Commute feature, from the creator himself, right after the break.
