New Blackberry Empathy

The Blackberry Empathy concept phone comes with a biometrics ring that detects the mood of both parties which is very interesting to me. Additionally the Empathy is normally crystal clear when inactive and changes to black when in put in use. Very impressive to say the least.

Another spicy feature is how this phone is charged. With the phone you also get a power mat that lets you sit your Empathy and biometrics ring for charging purposes.

This new Blackberry Empathy comes with all full necessary Accessories and come with 1years warranty and 7month return policy.

New Blackberry Empathy cost about $550USD.

Apple iOS 6 starts seeding to iDevices around the globe

Apple has just started seeding its latest iOS 6 to iDevices around the globe. If you own a 4S, 4, 3GS oriPad 2, new iPad and iPod Touch you can expect to get the update in the following hours.

This is the first iOS release that’s available over the air so you can check the Software update menu on your eligible device. You can also check for the update from your computer, but you’ll need the latest iTunes (v10.7) installed.

The update might take a while depending on where you are. If you know your Apple stuff you should know that the main features in iOS 6 are the brand new Maps app with free voice-guided navigation, which replaces Google Maps, Facebook integration and a more functional Siri. Here’s our iOS 6 previewif you want to check out what else has changed.


iPhone 5 mini dock USB cable photo leaked

The next generation in Apple USB connector cables has appeared in a relatively clear photo presented to the world hoping for every detail they can get on the iPhone 5 – another piece of Apple hardware that’s not yet even been announced by the manufacturer. Rumors up to this point have converged on a new dock connector for the new iPhone, a newly improved iPad 3, and an iPad mini, each of them with the same port for a 16-pin cord. This cord appears to have two sides, each of them with 8 pins that are able to face upwards or downwards interchangeably.


The photo appears to show a scannable code for the USB connector end of the cord and a brand new (familiar) connector on its opposite end. This cord doesn’t appear to be a standard length, strangely enough, or it certainly doesn’t seem to match the length of the cords currently appearing in iPhone and iPad boxes in stores at this moment. Because of this, we’re going to go ahead and guess that this is a 3rd party component cord leaked from a manufacturer who has Apple’s plans well in advance of the final reveal.

Apple’s 30-pin connector is not restricted to construction by Apple alone at the moment, appearing in connection kits of all kinds across the Apple-loving accessory spectrum. You’re currently able to head out to your local department store and pick up a wide variety of 3rd party iPhone, iPad, and iPod connection cords, so a future cord made by a group other than Apple is certainly within the realm of possibility.





Nigeria leads Africa’s Internet speed rankings

WITH an average speed of 322kbps, and a peak rate of 5,674kbps, Nigeria has been ranked as the country with the fastest Internet speed in Africa.

According to latest Internet publication by Akamai Technologies Global Internet Platform, Nigeria has surpassed South Africa in terms of speed.

The body explained that Nigeria has an average connection speed of 322kbps with a peak rate of 5674kbps. But while South Africa’s average speed is faster at 496kbps, the country’s peak speed is only half that of Nigeria, at 2172kbps.

The report stressed that all mobile providers have average peak connection speed of over two mbps, though last place South African provider, ZA-1 was just above the threshold, losing over 13 per cent from the prior quarter, at 2.2 mbps.

Furthermore, the report noted that in 2011, South Africa was one of only two countries listed in the report with an average peak connection speed of below two mbps. It explained that South Africa had average 442kbps over Nigeria’s 286kbps. It said Nigeria has now surpassed South Africa with peak 4871kbps and average 462mbps per month.

The report also stated that Internet speed across the globe improved, adding that all 117 countries that qualified for inclusion measured an increase in average connection speeds.

According to it, the gain in average speed however was not uniform, as Montenegro grew by 0.2 per cent to 2.8 mbps, while Libya measured a 75 per cent increase for a speed of 0.5 mbps.

However, despite the new ranking, huge amount of bandwidth capacities still lies fallow at the Nigerian shore.

The minister of Communications Technology, Mrs. Omobola Johnson said in Abuja   recently that over 7.78 terabytes of Internet capacity was lying untapped at the shores of the country, even as Internet penetration in the country remained abysmally low.

Johnson said unless the capacity was connected to the hinterlands through last-mile connectivity, it would remain a challenge for the country in getting the capacity inland and that Internet penetration in the country would also remain a challenge.

The minister said number of Internet users in the country was about 52 million, while Internet subscription was about 3.6 per cent, while she put penetration is 33 per cent.

Apple expands iOS 6 3D Maps coverage to US, CANADA and EUROPE

Apple has released iOS 6 beta 4 that notably drops the Google-backed YouTube application and adds some tweaks. The iOS 6 3D Maps application is one of the highlight featuresof the upcoming iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch operating system, so we’ve been combing the app for newly supported 3D regions. We’ve found that Apple has added some new incredible 3D views for new major cities both in the U.S. and abroad. Here are the major new 3D cities we’ve found:


United States: Boston, Atlanta, Portland, Phoenix, New Orleans, Philadelphia, Houston, Dallas.


Canada: Toronto.


Europe: Lyon, France; Birmingham, UK; Manchester, UK.


Previous iOS 6 releases, beginning with the beta 1 release in mid-June, include several other cities: Los Angeles, San Diego, Memphis,Español: Este es un logo para IOS (Apple). Más...

Denver, Copenhagen, Montreal, San Francisco and the Bay Area, Las Vegas, Sydney, Melbourne, Chicago, Miami, Seattle, and Sacramento. Apple’s iOS 6 3D mapping technology was inherited with the company’s 2011 acqusition of a company called C3 Technologies. C3 also produced 3D data for London, Barcelona, Milan, Prague, Toronto, Venice, Oslo, and Vienna so perhaps we will see those cities added soon.

Is Twitter the end of small talk?

Recent events on Twitter show it is now time to consider the unintended consequences of our very public online conversations, says Tom Chatfield.

“Action speaks louder than words, but not nearly as often,” wrote the 19th Century author Mark Twain. Although he courted more than his fair share of controversies, Twain lived at a time when public and published words were possessed by a minority. Mere talk – those mundane conversations and concerns his wit so carefully skewered – existed far from worldly words and actions.

Eleven decades after the author’s death, such boundaries are less certain.

Consider just a handful of the cases and controversies currently involving Twitter. Thanks to an allegedlyracisttweet, Manchester United’s Rio Ferdinand has been charged by the Football Association with improper conduct. Legal action is beingbroughtagainstTwitter in the US in order to make it reveal the identity of the person behind a spoof account satirising the chief executive of a newspaper group. British journalist Guy Adams was suspended from using the site following American broadcaster NBC’s complaintsoverhistweeting, although he was reinstated after a public outcry. Ugly, abusive threats to the Olympic diver Tom Daley led to the arrest of a teenager. Twitter’s own chief executive recentlycalled some of the abuse and heckling that takes place on his site “horrifying”. And the US government – among others – has made many hundreds of user information requests to the service for its own reasons.

It feels, as the author and media expert Dan Gillmour recently put it, like “a defining moment for Twitter”. But it’s also a moment in which larger issues of both law and belief are being defined. What freedoms and protections do we owe to each other in this young arena, where even the most casual comments are fleshed with enough permanence to act upon the world? And are our old structures for judging and enforcing these protections remotely up to the job?

‘Menacing character’

Some of the most suggestive recent answers to these questions seem, to me, to be bound up with a tale that Twain himself might have considered exemplary satire: that of the British man convicted of telling a dubiously tasteful joke.

Like all the best stories, it begins with a boy and a girl. In January 2010, 28-year-old Paul Chambers was poised to visit his girlfriend in Northern Ireland when he discovered that the UK’s Robin Hood airport was closed due to snow. In frustration, he posted a message under his own name on Twitter. “Crap!” it exclaimed, “Robin Hood Airport is closed. You’ve got a week and a bit to get your shit together, otherwise I’m blowing the airport sky high!”



RIM launches new line of PlayBook tablets

TORONTO (Reuters) – Research In Motion chose its home country to launch a PlayBook tablet with built-in support for cellular networks, a crucial feature that its initial models lacked.

The BlackBerry maker said on Thursday that the new tablets will be launched in Canada next week and rolled out in coming months in the United States, Europe, South Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean.

The PlayBook tablet, launched more than a year ago, is strategically important for RIM as it is the first product to use the QNX operating system RIM will move onto a new generation of BlackBerry phones designed to compete with sexier devices already on the market.

But the PlayBook was widely criticized at launch for lacking basic features such as email, and it has failed to wow consumers despite sharply discounted pricing and a major software upgrade.
