Tag Heuer concept watch beats 3.6 million times per hour, $89,000 price tag gives heart palpitations

Tag Heuer's high-end concept chronograph is so precise, blink and you'll miss it -- literally. The Mikrotimer Flying 1000's watch movement runs at 500Hz. Compare that to other high-end chronos plodding along at 5Hz, and you start to see the sort of power and precision Team Tag are working with -- this mesmerizing piece of wrist jewelry is capable of banging out 3.6 million beats per hour. Initially planned as a one-off, the concept watch will now go on sale for a lucky few timepiece obsessives. Be prepared to reach for your severely over-burdened money clip, though; the price is set at €65,000 ($88,580), with a limited run of ten arriving before the end of the year. Gawp in awe at the brief video after the break. You may have to sell the Batmobile.

Facebook per iPad presentato finalmente il 4 ottobre?

L’attesa per Facebook per iPad si è ormai così dilatata da rendersi quasi inesistente, come l’appetito dopo un digiuno prolungato. Tuttavia forse finalmente qualcosa si sta muovendo e l’app potrebbe vedere la luce nientemeno che durante la giornata di presentazione di iPhone 5 (o di iPhone 4s). Proprio così, il 4 ottobre 2011 prossimo, a Cupertino in California, l’applicazione ufficiale di Facebook per iPad potrebbe essere finalmente svelata mettendo fine a un’attesa troppo lunga e per certi versi poco comprensibile.

In realtà il motivo di questo ritardo così prolungato potrebbe dipendere da una querelle tra lo staff del social network numero uno, fondato da Mark Zuckerberg e da Cupertino stessa. Ma c’è un particolare ancora più particolare: l’app sarebbe pronta da tempo notevole. Ma in gioco di trincee le due fazioni non avanzano né si scontrano, ma potrebbero presto trovare un accordo. Il 4 ottobre spazio a tutte le risposte.

Vodafone InFamiglia: e la tecnologia diventa amica degli over 50

Vodafone InFamiglia è un particolare progetto che punta, citiamo, all’alfabetizzazione informatica per le persone over 50 ossia per tutti quegli utenti o potenziali tali che non nascono nel mondo delle tecnologie e desiderano però apprezzarne tutte le sfaccettature e le caratteristiche. InFamiglia si strutturerà in una serie di appuntamenti in 13 diverse città della Penisola con veri e propri corsi di web e di social network per tutti. Si dà infatti troppo per scontato, mentre per molte persone è necessario partire direttamente dalle fondamenta.

Vodafone InFamigliaInternet in Pillole parlerà così del web e dei servizi che offre, con debutto a Roma e poi a seguire importanti centri come Catania, Pisa, Napoli, Bologna, Milano, Padova, Lecce, Torino, L’Aquila, Cagliari, Reggio Calabria e Matera, tutti nelle sedi di Vodafone o presso partner. Un’iniziativa lodevole, che segue quella a proposito del rinnovo dei centri d’assistenza.

Scopri Google Gravity e gli altri giochi con Google

Google Gravity è uno dei giochi di Google più divertenti degli ultimi tempi! Si tratta di un’applicazione che non possiamo non provare, soprattutto perché risulta molto originale. L’app online, creata in HTML 5, permette di utilizzare una versione particolare del motore di ricerca, sottoposta alla forza di gravità. Una volta collegati all’home page di Google Gravity infatti, dopo qualche secondo, tutti gli elementi presenti nella pagina cadranno verso il basso, come se fossero attratti inesorabilmente dalla forza di gravità. Ma le particolarità non finiscono certo qui.

Infatti il motore di ricerca funziona perfettamente, anche se distrutto in tanti pezzi. Potremo giocare con i vari elementi dell’home page di Google Gravity, trascinandoli e lanciandoli ai bordi dello schermo. E potremo addirittura usare la casella di testo per effettuare delle ricerche online. E le pagine dei risultati della ricerca ovviamente subiranno lo stesso trattamento della pagina principale. Probabilmente non servirà a molto, ma il risultato è veramente spettacolare.

Non è la prima volta che assistiamo ad un gioco di questo tipo a tema Google, che ha festeggiato di recente il 13esimo compleanno con un Doodle molto particolare. L’azienda di Mountain View ha lanciato tempo fa un Google Doodle molto particolare tutto da giocare interamente dedicato a Pacman. E la lista degli esperimenti, dedicati a Google Chrome e alle nuove tecnologie sul web, creati dagli utenti continua ad esempio con “te lo cerco io su Google“, un’interessante web app che in pochi secondi ci permette di ottenere un link per automatizzare una ricerca sul motore più famoso del mondo.

India’s $35 tablet said to ship in October, do dreams really come true?



This mysterious $35 tablet has broken our hearts, crushed our fantasies and even made unicorns cry with delay after delay. Today, HRD Minister Kapil Sibal assured us that the much anticipated slate will be released on October 5th -- promising that this time, "[It's] not just a dream." Evidently, the tablet has overcome the manufacturing problems that plagued the project previously and now production is proceeding according to a new plan. That means that five, seven and nine inch slates are said to be shipping to lucky Indian students in early October -- sadly, both the Loch Ness Monster and Bigfoot have advised us not to hold our breath.

[Thanks, nithin]

The Nokia contraction continues: 3,500 further job losses and more on the horizon

Nokia continues to align its workforce and operations

Next phase of changes to improve efficiencies in manufacturing, Location Commerce, and supporting functions

Nokia Corporation Stock exchange release September 29, 2011 at 10.00 (CET+1)
Espoo, Finland -

Nokia today announced plans to take additional actions to align its workforce and operations. The measures support both the execution of the company's strategy and the savings target the company announced earlier this year, and also target to bring efficiencies and speed to the organization.

Earlier this year, Nokia announced changes primarily focused on aligning its RD operations in Smart Devices and Mobile Phones. Today, the company announced the next phase of operational alignment, which includes plans for reductions in manufacturing, the Location Commerce business, and supporting functions.

Nokia plans to adjust its manufacturing capacity and renew its manufacturing operations to better serve its global network of customers, partners and suppliers in the following manner:
- Focus its feature phone manufacturing on those locations with optimal proximity to suppliers and key markets. As a result, Nokia plans to close its manufacturing facility in Cluj, Romania by the end of 2011, as Nokia's high-volume Asian factories provide greater scale and proximity benefits.

- Review the long-term role of its manufacturing operations in Salo, Finland, Komarom, Hungary, and Reynosa, Mexico. These factories are expected to continue to play a key role in serving European and North American smartphone customers, but the plan is to gradually shift their focus to customer and market-specific software and sales package customization. It is estimated this would have an impact on the number of personnel in 2012, with no impact in 2011. Nokia will engage in discussions with employee representatives and stakeholders in these sites, and expects to have more visibility into the possible headcount impacts in the first quarter of 2012.

Nokia previously announced its plans to create a Location Commerce business consolidating location assets including NAVTEQ and Nokia's social location services operations. As part of consolidating this business, Nokia has identified potential synergies and opportunities to increase effectiveness through automation. Location Commerce is responsible for driving the delivery of the world's best digital mapping content, location platform and social-location experiences. Nokia plans to concentrate its Location Commerce development efforts in Berlin, Boston, Chicago and other supporting sites, and plans to close its operations in Bonn, Germany and Malvern, US.

Nokia is also starting consultations with employees in Sales, Marketing and Corporate Functions, in line with Nokia's earlier announcement on April 27, 2011.
"We are seeing solid progress against our strategy, and with these planned changes we will emerge as a more dynamic, nimble and efficient challenger," said Stephen Elop, Nokia President and CEO. "We must take painful, yet necessary, steps to align our workforce and operations with our path forward."

"Europe is core to Nokia's future. In addition to our headquarters, we have a strong RD presence in Europe. We have four major RD sites in Finland and two major RD sites in Germany, as well as Nokia Research Centers and other supporting RD sites in Europe. Nokia also retains a strong local presence in our many sales offices throughout this region, as well as our operations in Salo and Komarom," said Elop.

The planned closure of the Cluj factory combined with adjustments to supply chain operations is estimated to impact approximately 2,200 employees. The planned changes in the Location Commerce business are estimated to impact approximately 1,300 employees. These personnel reductions are in addition to the measures announced in April and are expected to take effect by the end of 2012.

In line with the company values, Nokia will offer employees affected by the planned reductions a comprehensive support program. Nokia remains committed to supporting its employees and the local communities through this difficult change.

Huawei Honor gets video run-through, manages to hold the mobile court’s attention

Sure, it may not grab headlines like a new iPhone or Google phone but that's not to say we're utterly uninterested in seeing a bit more of Huawei's forthcoming top-drawer handset. Now confirmed to play friendly with US radio frequencies, the single-core 1.4GHz Honor has been given a full video run-through. Techblog posits a December launch and a €300 ($400) price-tag -- not exactly the bargain basement prices we've come to expect from Huawei, but with a 4-inch touchscreen, DLNA abilities, an 8 megapixel camera on the back and a substantial 1900mAh battery, it looks like you'll get what you pay for. Catch the video after the break to judge for yourself.
