Samsung Series 5 Ultrabooks hit India amid much fanfare

Holla! The much prized Series 5 Ultrabooks from Samsung have just entered the Indian market and have already thrown the crowd into a tizzy. Significantly inferior to the Series 9 Ultrabooks from the Korean maker, the Series 5’s India visit comprises of the 13- and 14-inch variations, and still boast a spec sheet that will leave your mouth watering.

Starting off with the hard-disk, while the 13-incher can hold data up to 500GB, the 14-incher comes loaded with a 1TB HDD. Connectivity ports are divided as one USB 3.0, two USB 2.0, 4-in-1 multi SD card slot and Ethernet for the smaller lad, while the 14-inch machine comes with  two USB 3.0, one USB 2.0, 4-in-1 multi SD card slot and Ethernet. In addition to this, both the machines sport a  full-size HDMI port, an Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB RAM, and a built-in webcam for that feeling of indifference. Both the models also use screens with Samsung’s SuperBright Technology, which supports maximum resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels. Look-wise they are elegant and performance-wise they are more than just satisfactory. Already want to own one of these? Shell out Rs.48,990 and you might land yourself the 13-incher, or cough up an additional Rs.5,400 to get the 14-incher at Rs.54,390.

India’s Premier League Soccer gets delayed

The start of the inaugural edition of India’s IPL-style football extravaganza, the Premier League Soccer, has been delayed indefinitely due to an overly embarrassing situation in the country – lack of available football grounds. The six-team competition, featuring a host of world class footballers such as Fabio Canavarro, Robert Pires, Hernan Crespo and the likes was originally slated to kick off March 24 in the eastern Indian state of West Bengal but the organisers said they could not secure the stadiums owned by the state government, resulting in an indefinite delay in the inauguration. The organizers are now working towards a mid-April start to the cash-rich football league, though nothing can be confirmed as of yet in a country like India.

Apple’s New Game-Changer: Messages For Mac

Back in the 90s and early 200x, having the ability to send a text message across to another person far away from you via an electronic device (a la SMS) was a costly affair. Back then we didn’t have technologies and innovations as we have now so we were left at the mercy of our network carriers to charge us inexplicable amounts for sending and receiving SMSes. Today, it’s a different ball game altogether.

Ideas like the BlackBerry Messenger, more popularly referred to as BBM, from RIM have found a way to bypass the carrier and instead use the data networks of operators to send instant messages, making it cheap and convenient for users all around. And while we thought things couldn’t get better than this, they just did.

As you know, Apple’s answer to RIM’s BBM is iMessage — an instant messaging service available on all iOS devices, making it a true SMS replacement so long as all your friends have iOS devices which, let’s be honest, they probably do. Now, after a great response, Apple is bringing iMessage to Mac OS. Yes!

With the release of the Mountain Lion OS this summer, Apple will be making iMessage a part of the in-built desktop experience, offering something that not even the incumbent SMS can offer and something that’s not yet possible, unless you resort to a third-party chat protocol-using app.

Ubiquitous instant messaging

With Messages for Mac you can start a conversation on your iPhone and continue it on your Mac whenever you return home. Getting cozy on the bed with your iPad? No problem, your iMessages go with you everywhere. Throw in Skype for calls and FaceTime for video chats and we don’t need these useless carriers at all. Think different.

Samsung Galaxy S III / Galaxy S 3D coming this February?

Back in February of this year, Samsung Electronics had unveiled what turned out to be the most successful Android device out there in the form of the Galaxy S II. They unveiled the popular smartphone at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) – an event held in Barcelona, Spain every year that acts as a launching pad for many new gadgets. Now, with the unprecedented success of the Galaxy S II, people all over are looking forward to the Galaxy S III, which a report claims will arrive in the same glorious way its predecessor did.

The report claims the successor to the S II will feature a new quad-core processing technology, and possibly even some three-dimensional magic (3D), as the Korean electronics giant looks to differentiate its smartphones from Apple’s popular iPhone.

The report also claims 3D photo and video recording capabilities may be coming to additional Samsung smartphones next year, specifically mentioning a device referred to as the Galaxy S 3D — helping users deliver content to their 3D TVs easily.

If the report is to be believed and Samsung have really lined by the S III and/or S 3D for MWC 2012, then the device(s) is(are) most likely to be made available to the public somewhere around May/June of 2012.

As always, we’ll keep you informed as and when we find something.

Apple releases iTunes Match with iTunes 10.5.1

Following several quick-fire beta releases in the past few days, Apple has now released iTunes 10.5.1 final to the public, bringing along iTunes Match as well for the Americans. With iTunes Match, users can now sync their music from their iTunes libraries to iCloud for $24.99 a year. Apple has explicitly said only songs that are available on iTunes can be synced and no songs from outside will be allowed. There’s no limit to your uploads so get downloading iTunes 10.5.1 from Apple’s site here, or from your iDevice’s Software Update option, and begin making your illegal music legal.

P.S. Despite the public launch, Apple is still labeling iTunes Match as a beta product. Developers who have tested iTunes Match will continue receiving a free three months with their yearly subscription.

Apple to launch iTunes Match soon, issues notice to be prepared

Apple is working very hard behind the scenes and is all set to launch iTunes Match very soon, judging by the ‘update’ they have sent out:

As we prepare for the launch of iTunes Match, we will be deleting all current iCloud libraries on Saturday, November 12th at 10 AM PST.
Please turn off iTunes Match on all of your computers and iOS devices. On your computer, choose Store > Turn off iTunes Match. On your iOS device, tap Settings > Music, then turn off iTunes Match. On your Apple TV, please choose Music > Turn off iTunes Match.
The songs on your computer should not be affected. As always, please backup regularly and do not delete the music you add to iCloud from your computer.

Apple has asked beta users of its iTunes Match cloud library service to backup their belongings as all the libraries in the cloud will be deleted today at 10 AM Pacific time.

Apple had previously set itself a deadline of October to launch the service but failed to deliver.

We still haven’t received any new launch date but a launch any time soon looks imminent given Apple’s preparations.

Motorola Facebook phone is real, goes by the name Motokey Social

Earlier during the year, several rumors had surfaced regarding an alleged Facebook phone to be built by Motorola. The rumors picked pace and photos (concepts) popped up before the rumor mill threw a twist in the midst, speculating the phone is to be built by Facebook itself. This prompted Mark Zuckerberg to come out and say that the folks at Facebook themselves have no such plans of building any phone, eventually killing the rumors of a Facebook phone for good. Fast forward to November and the phone’s a reality, built by Motorola.

The Motorola Facebook phone is exactly as its name suggests and as the rumors pointed out: a QWERTY phone with a dedicated Facebook button — to ease your entry into the social network. It has a 2.4-inch touchscreen, a 3MP camera, offers basic access to Gmail, Facebook and Twitter, and will run on a proprietary platform (read: not Android), which means this could be an inexpensive option to appease the kiddies during the holidays.

Motorola still hasn’t publicly spoken about the phone so details such as pricing and availability are still far off. But at least we have a name to call it: Motokey Social.


As always, we’ll keep you informed as we find out more. You can also subscribe to our feeds/newsletter to stay directly in our loop.
