Ice Cream Sandwich:Learn How to Run the Emulator







Google announced Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and, on the same day, released the SDK. This means that you can run ICS for yourself in your computer. On the bottom of this post you'll find steps (plus a video) on how to get Android 4.0 working on your desktop. But first, I wanted to show you a walkthrough of Ice Cream Sandwich to point out the major new features.


Altough the emulator doesn't give us a good sense of the performance, but what I can tell is that ICS looks much more refined and feels much more consistent when compared to previous versions of Android for phones. We see a ton of UI elements come from Honeycomb, which isn't a bad thing.


To run the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwhich emulator:

1. Download the SDK
2. Extract the Zip to a folder on your desktop
3. Click SDK Manager.exe
4. Put a check in the box for Android 4.0, click Install Packages on bottom right
5. Go back into the Android folder on your desktop, open AVD Manager.exe
6. Click New
7. Give it a name, change the target to Android 4.0
8. Click Create AVD
9. Hit Start, wait five minutes

Windows 8 Shortcuts Tips and Tricks



Keyboard and mouse shortcuts and tips for Windows 8 Developer Preview users on a PC without a touch-screen.

Windows key shortcuts:

  • Windows + Spacebar switch the input language and keyboard layout
  • Windows + Tab cycles through apps
  • Windows + Q brings up Application search
  • Windows + W brings up Settings search
  • Windows + F brings Files search
  • Windows + I brings up settings charm
  • Windows + O brings rotation lock
  • Windows + C brings up the Charm menu, as does hovering over the lower-left hand corner of the screen
  • Windows + F brings up the Search screen, though simply typing (when on the Start screen) is more convenient
  • Windows + Z in a fullscreen app brings up the contextual menus
  • Windows + D takes you to the desktop
  • Windows + L locks the PC, invoking the lock screen
  • Windows + P pulls up multi-monitor settings
  • Windows + I brings up the Settings charm
  • Windows + E invokes Windows Explorer, as ever
  • Windows + R brings up the Run prompt
  • Windows + Y makes all your open windows (and the Metro UI) transparent, so you can see the desktop beneath
  • Windows + X shows Windows Mobility Center, which appears to serve much the same role as the Settings charm but on the desktop instead


Metro UI tips:

  • You can simply start typing with your keyboard on the Start screen to launch applications and search.
  • You can use most old keyboard shortcuts such as Win+D or Win+R or Win+L.
  • Mouse mode lets you activate the charms/options by putting the mouse at the bottom left edge.
  • Mouse mode also lets you active in-app options by right clicking.
  • Use the keyboard's arrow keys and page down/up to pick tiles. Use Enter to launch them. The menu button will let you select them.
  • The Scroll wheel pans across Start screen, slowly
  • Right-click brings up contextual menus in a full screen app
  • Left-click on the Start screen brings up options to unpin, resize and uninstall apps
  • Ctrl-Alt-Delete summons a screen with options to shut down, switch users, log off or quickly open the Task Manager
  • To unlock the lock screen, double tap on your mouse or hit any key on the keyboard instead of dragging to the top
  • In any app, right click to bring up the “app bar” to see everything you can do
  • To go back to the Start screen, simply use the Windows Key on your keyboard
  • Bump your mouse against the left side of the screen to see a thumbnail of your most recently used app. Use the scroll wheel to see all open modern apps
  • Modern apps don’t generally need to be closed — they are suspended when they’re not in view. If you really need to close them, use the task manager (via the tile or ctrl+shift+esc) to force quit
  • Use the page up and page down keys to move between tile groups on the Start Screen
  • Bump your mouse to the left and grab an app, if you pull it towards the right and then bump it to the left it will cycle to the next app
  • Pin/unpin tiles or remove apps by right clicking on tiles on the Start Screen
  • Activate Semantic Zoom in Metro apps by using Ctrl+ mouse scroll

Metro UI Tweaker

The Windows 8 Developer Preview has been just released and already tips and tweaks on Windows 8 have started making the round. Then can an app for Windows 8 be too far behind? Well, here we are with the first tweaking utility for Windows 8! A Metro UI Tweaker for Windows 8!





Metro UI Tweaker Tool is a freeware tool, designed to tweak a few settings that are unavailable to users in Windows 8.
The tweaks being currently offered are:
  1. Disable Metro Start Menu: Disables only Metro Start Menu Screen. This function requires editing a system file. It does not remove the file.
  2. Disable Metro Ribbon: Disables only the Metro Ribbon UI. This function I discovered myself. It requires Taking Ownership of a System File. It does not remove this file.
  3. Disable Metro Start Menu and Ribbon: Disables the Metro Start Menu UI, Ribbon UI, MetroTask Manager UI and the Lock Screen.
  4. Enable Metro Start Menu and Ribbon: Re-enables all available Metro UI options.
  5. Add Power Options to the Metro Start Menu Screen: Logoff, Switch User, Lock, Sleep, Restart and Shutdown
  6. Add any Application/File to the Metro UI Start Menu Screen: Some Applications/Files may not be available to you to add to the Metro Start Menu Screen. This program allows you to add those Applications/Files which would otherwise be unavailable.
On first run the program will generate a folder in your Windows Directory labeled Metro UI Tools. This folder is to keep your Power Option apps in places without worrying about them having to be moved. Once generated and the files are unpacked from the program, do not remove the folder or the Power Apps from this folder as these options will no longer be available and may generate errors.
Metro UI Tweaker v 1.0 for Windows 8, 32-bit and 64-bit, has been developed by Lee Whittington for The Windows Club. It will be updated with more tweaks from time to time.

Android.next: Ice Cream Sandwich


Google has dropped some interesting information about Ice Cream Sandwich, the next version of Android - Android 4.0 at its Google I/O conference in San Francisco. 

Interface

Ice Cream Sandwich will bring all the interface loveliness of Android 3.0 Honeycombto Android smartphones. Android phone users will get the updated app launcher, holographic user interface, interactive and new homescreen widgets plus the multi-tasking panel.

Features 

Google says Ice Cream Sandwich is its "most ambitious release to date" and will incorporate all the best bits of Honeycomb, the Android tablet OS, and make them useable on smartphones too.
But Ice Cream Sandwich is about more than just the user interface and it will bring all the new Android 3.1 features to phones. This new update means Android tablets will also be able to act as a USB hub and you'll be to hook up devices such as mice and keyboards and game controllers to tablets and smartphones.
Google is also intending to make life easier for developers by releasing a new set of APIs that will help them to scale their apps across the various sizes of Android devices - Google acknowledges that it's important for developers to be able to design apps that will work across 3.5-inch smartphones up to 10.1-inch tablets.
During the Google Google I/O keynote those on stage also showed off 3D headtracking using the front-mounted camera so you can figure out who is speaking and focus on them while on a video call. Face detection will be a key feature in the OS.

Google is intending to make Ice Cream Sandwich fully open source. It didn't do this with Android 3.0 Honeycomb in an attempt to make things more consistent.

Android 4.0 Leak Pics


Fans of Android’s next big thing have some great leaks out this morning. Romanian site Mobillissimo released a video walkthru of the upcoming Galaxy Nexus/Nexus Prime for your viewing pleasure, and now these screen shots have also made their way onto the web. These look to be pretty genuine shots of the next version of Android, including some great widgets, Honeycomb-style virtual keys, and the Honeycomb app switcher. Take it with a small grain of salt, but we’re pretty confident that this is the real deal.

Unfortunately, we’ll all be waiting a little longer to get an official look at things, as Google and Samsung have delayed the launch of the device and OS, which were expected to headline the October 11th Unpacked event. You can still whet your appetite with this leaked spec sheet, though, and it looks like Verizon owners seeking an upgrade should hold off as the device is rumored to be a Verizon exclusive.Download Android 4.0 SDK

Dart, a JavaScript alternative


Google today launched an "early preview" of Dart, a programming language the company hopes will help Web application programmers overcome shortcomings of JavaScript that Google itself feels acutely.
Programmer and project leader Lars Bak detailed the project in a talk today at the Goto conference in Denmark and in a blog post. Dart is geared for everything from small, unstructured projects to large, complicated efforts.

Google also unveiled a Dart language site that includes open-source tools for writing Dart programs, code samples, and tutorials; libraries of supporting software; the Dart language specification; and forums for discussion.

Google is releasing Dart now for the next step in its maturation: outside feedback and participation. "We hope the other browser vendors will be excited," Bak said, adding that today is the first that Google has shared details about Dart with them or others.Google is evaluating the best way to integrate Dart directly into its Chrome browser, something Bak is keen on. One reason: it will enable a "snapshotting" technology that dramatically improves a Web app's startup time. Snapshotting involves taking an application and "serializing" it into a single block of data.Google is releasing Dart now for the next step in its maturation: outside feedback and participation.

The new $35 Aakash Tablet


Indian government’s ultra low-cost tablet ‘Aakash’ is finally in front of us. The official launch comes after nearly one year telecom minister Kapil Sibal flaunted a prototype of the device. Previously nicknamed as ‘Sakshat’, the Aakash is being touted as the “world’s cheapest tablet”.  The tablet is considered to be a significant accomplishment for the government, which believes the device will bridge the gap between the rural India and the ongoing technology boom in the country.  Of late we have got several queries regarding the new Aakash tablet, so we’ve decided to give you a Facts post, which will help you find answers to most of your queries.

Availability 


The government will roll out 100,000 units of the Aakash tablet initially.  The details of the availability of the device are bit sketchy. The government says it will distribute the device to students through the institutions they are studying. So, best way to find out exact availability of Aakash tablet is to contact your concerned department of your college/institution.

Developed by

The Aakash tablet is designed, developed and manufactured by a Canada-based firm called DataWind in co-ordination with IIT Rajasthan. According to reports, DataWind plans to launch a high end version of the device in less price sensitive markets such as the UK and US.

iPhone 4S





Apple on Tuesday, announced the next generation iPhone: the iPhone 4S, 3G smartphone with an improved processor, which is designed to run seven times faster than the iPhone 4. This will also make the device capable of running applications faster than its predecessor. The new “World Phone” can run both CDMA and GSM networks, with an advanced and faster 8 megapixel camera.Having the iPhone 4S announced, Apple also stated that its earlier generation iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4 will stay on and continue selling it,however their prices may be reduced.


4S Features





Powerful Processor





At first glance, the iPhone 4S looks quite similar to the iPhone 4. However, the important feature that the iPhone 4 sports is the dual core A5 chip, the most powerful iPhone processor ever. The two cores in the A5 chip are set to deliver flawless performance with 7x faster graphics and two times more power. With the power of A5, the iPhone 4S is quick and responsive, which makes all the difference when you’re launching apps, browsing the web, gaming, and doing just about everything. And with all this, the A5 is yet so power-efficient with an outstanding battery life.


OS

The most exciting feature of the Apple iPhone 4S is that it will run on the iOS 5, which Apple announced it during its WWDC 2011 this year. It sports more than 200 features than the earlier versions, which includes Twitter integration, a new messenger called the iMessage application – used to communicate between iOS devices, improved Notification System on emails, News Stand and more. Apple claims that the iOS 5 is the most advanced and powerful OS, which will definitely enhance your experience with the iPhone.
Along with its 200+ features, it will also include the iCloud service. This will enable users to sync, host and manage content like music, photos, apps, calendar, mail, contacts, documents, and so on. It certainly is an effortless way to manage your content, which can be accessed from any part of the world. The service will be available from October 12. However the golden master version of it can be downloaded from here.


Camera



The iPhone 4S sports a splendid 8 megapixel resolution camera that claims to pack 60 percent more pixel for better shooting experience with autofocus, LED flash and face detection. It has a new custom lens with a larger f/2.4 aperture and an advanced hybrid infrared filter for sharper and accurate images.It also supports 1080p HD video recording at 30 frames per second. Improved auto white balance makes the color even more accurate, and temporal noise reduction helps you take great videos in low light and also has the video stabilization feature which will eliminate unwanted motion caused by unsteady shaky hands. Along with this, you can edit your video on the go and share them with your friends.

Display



Sadly, the display size is the same as the iPhone 4 and so is the resolution. It has a retina 3.5 inch with a 1.5:1 aspect ratio widescreen multi-touch display. It has an LED backlight IPS TFT LCD screen with a 960 by 640 pixel resolution at 326ppi (0.61 MP). This will provide crisp and crystal clear images, which brings a better viewing experience for a viewer. An interesting feature that the iPhone 4S has is the fingerprint resistant oleophobic coating on the front as well as on the back.

Siri


A new voice control feature in the new version of the iPhone 4S is an intelligent assistant called Siri. Siri helps you do everything with just your voice command. With this the device exactly understands what you say, and helps you figure out the right answer. If you want to make a call, send a message, set a meeting or schedule a reminder, the new Siri will help you make it possible.
For instance, if the user commands stating “What is the weather going to be like?”, then the assistant will response such as “The weather is to be cloudy and rainy and drop to 60 degree today”. It’s an interesting feature that Apple has come up with, and I’m sure most of them will find it quite helpful.
The voice control feature not only understands what you say, but it’s smart enough to know what you mean. So if you ask Siri, “Any good burger joints around here?”, then Siri would reply “I found a number if burger restaurants near you” and provides a list of all the restaurants nearby.
The same feature can also be used to take dictation. Instead of typing, the iPhone 4S can listen to your voice and convert them into text. You can mainly use this to write messages, take notes, search the web, and more. You can also update your Facebook and update tweets with third-party apps.


FaceTime


The FaceTime feature lets you talk to your friends and loved ones no matter how far you are from them. With this feature you can not only video chat with your friends, but also host important meetings. With a tap, you can make video calls from your iPhone 4S to your friend’s or colleague’s iPhone, iPad 2 or iPod Touch.
Or you can just command Siri, “FaceTime with Jake”. Or maybe you’re already talking to Jake, and you want switch to video mode. Just tap the FaceTime button on the screen and an invite pops up asking if he wants to join you. It’s seamless and works in both portraits and landscape view.


AirPlay





With AirPlay, you can wirelessly stream what’s on your iPhone to your HDTV and speakers via Apple TV. And with AirPlay Mirroring, whatever you see and do on your iPhone appears on your HDTV at the same time.

Network

iPhone 4S is the first phone to intelligently switch between two antennas to transmit and receive, so call quality is better. It also doubles the maximum HSDPA data speeds to 14.4 Mbps.8 Which means faster connections, faster loading and reloading, and faster downloads. And iPhone 4S is a world phone, so you can use it almost anywhere. Whether you’re a GSM or CDMA customer, you can roam GSM networks in 200 countries around the world.

The iPhone 4S will be available for pre-order from October 7th. The order can be placed from the Apple Online Store or by calling 1-800-MY-APPLE. Choose a carrier and plan, and Apple will ship your iPhone free for delivery beginning October 14. However, the device will be available in-store starting on October 14 at 8am in US, Canada, Australia, United Kingdom, France, Germany, and Japan.
It will be released on October 28 in the following countries:

Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Mexico, Netherlands, Norway, Singapore, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland. And will be released in 40 more countries by December 2011.

Windows 8

Windows, being one of the most used OS, brings great challenges for Microsoft to keep its users impressed in the next version of Windows.While it released the early version of Windows 8 on a prototype tablet last week. Those of you who would like to taste and experience the all new Windows 8,can download the Developer Preview, which is currently in pre-beta version clicking here.The developer version shows off the current stage of the OS.


Windows 8 Features:


Support for both x86 PCs and ARM 

Windows 8 is the first edition of Windows which will work on both ARM based tablets and traditional x86 (as well as x32 and x64) PCs based on ARM processors from Intel and AMD.
“Support for ARM-based chipsets, touch, and sensors makes Windows 8 work beautifully on your choice of a full spectrum of devices, such as 10-inch slates with all-day battery life, ultra-lightweight laptops, and powerful all-in-ones with 27-inch high-definition screens,” Microsoft contends, in a Windows 8 Guide distributed with Windows Developer Preview


Windows To Go

The “Windows To Go” seems to be an exciting feature that basically allows Windows 8 to boot from a USB device (called as Live USB), including user’s programs, settings and files. The feature is designed to work with both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, and on both legacy NIOS and UDFI firmware. However, Microsoft says that a user will not be able to “Hibernate” with this feature.
“Windows To Go is a new feature in Windows 8 that enables enterprise administrators to create USB drives containing complete, managed Windows images that users can use to boot and run Windows on any Windows 7 or Windows 8 capable computer. Windows To Go makes it possible for employees to use a managed device whether they work from home, a client office or in a free seating environment. This session will discuss Windows To Go, its hardware requirements and building compatible and complementary software.”
Another interesting thing about this feature is that, if the USB drive is removed, Windows will automatically freeze, but will continue to operate if the USB drive is inserted back in the next 60 seconds after removal.


Windows Store

Windows confirmed the introduction of a Windows Store, similar to Mac App Store, which allows users to browse through Windows applications, while developers can publish their Metro-style apps there.Here's a quick demo of how it works.




Improved Windows Defender

The Windows Defender which was first released with Windows Vista is getting a security upgrade with the upcoming Windows 8. This would probably edge-our third-party antivirus and anti-malware programs. Windows Defender will become a full-fledged anti-malware solution for Windows 8. This will include protection against all types of malware such as virus, worms, trojans and rootkits.
In addition to that, Windows Defender will provide real-time detection and protection from malware threats using a file system filter, and will interface with Windows secured boot, which is another security feature.


Internet Explorer 10

The developer preview of Windows 8 comes with a Metro version of Internet Explore (IE) 10. Since it is a preview version, it does not support any browser plugins and extension – including Adobe Flash and Microsoft Silverlight. However, it will feature full screen browsing mode by default, implements several new HTML5 capabilities, turbocharges HTML5 performance, and adds some security options for Web applications.



Minimum System Requirements

It is reported that Windows 8 is expected to have the same system requirements as Windows 7, and will run on existing PCs/laptops that run Windows 7. Here are the following minimum system requirements to run Windows 8:


Processor: 1GHz or faster 32-bit or 64-bit processor
RAM: 1GB (32-bit) or 2GB (64-bit)
HD Space: 16GB for 32-bit (or 20GB for 64-bit)


Download Windows 8
