Samsung Galaxy Note Art

The days of blocky 8-bit art are long gone, and while they may still hold preference for some nostalgic minds, the new wave is here and it’s being recognized by users of the Samsung Galaxy Note. Recently, we discovered the ‘Note is Art’ gallery located in Seoul, South Korea. The most interesting note, pardon the pun, is that the curator, Yeondo Jung, is also the artist who re-created these works of art made by other users of the Galaxy Note. It certainly does appear as if this phablet cold have a niche market to sell to for years to come.  You…

Android has been around for some time now. You would think Google would have made a central point for fans of the heralded OS to get their info. Apple has their hub for iPhone users, and every manufacturer of smartphones has their one stop software and info depot on the Web. So why the lag, Google? Never to mind that critical viewpoint though, as the Android team has finally launched an official blog! Previously, Google Mobile was the spot to get all your fresh sourced info about Android. Naturally, Google is using the well-known Blogspot hosting for Android as they…

A few days ago we reported on Google Fiber Gigabit Internet and it’s expected value on the market. But we never expected anything quite like this: Kansas City, MO is now hovering at the 25th percentage mark for having all Google thresholds met. If you’ll recall, Google is requesting that fiberhoods meet certain quota before they rollout their network in a specific area. It’s being reported that eligible fiberhoods are surpassing demand and the numbers just keep rising. Keep in mind, this statistic is only for the Missouri side where apparently people can buy into such ideas. Things are not…

Friday Android app

  Every once in a while, an app comes along with such ingenuity and intuition, that it makes its audience pause and reflect on how integral smartphones have become in our daily lives. The creative app I’m about to share with you is one such app and believe me, it won’t disappoint that headline! Friday, as noted by its developers, “changes the way you use your android. It captures your entire life through your phone and builds a beautiful timeline of your life.” In essence, it’s a bit like using Facebooks’ notorious Timeline but as a separately functioning Android app. This can…

  On the heels of the successful release of the much hailed Nexus 7, comes exciting news from Google: cheaper gigabit broadband coupled with TV. This may not seem like much, but to be honest, in the monopolized realm of US ISP’s, it’s big news. Google just launched its first rollout in the Midwest region and is using an old marketing trick of growing their customer base. Remember the old Gmail and Google Wave invite?  They plan to use the same idea for this new service in order for it to “go viral”. Google is asking potential customers to tell…

It appears, as of Friday, that Google may be in a bit of hot water over the neglecting of some promises signed in November of 2010. Earlier in May 2010, the company admitted to some concerns over a public privacy breach. This happened while it was scouring neighborhoods in Street View vehicles. Through these networks, located in Britain and 30 other countries, retrieval of personal data and images from unsecured networks were retained during these Street View image collections. Then, in November 2010, a notice was issued to Google to delete the data. It said it would comply. Recently, the British…

In a future article, we will go over the inherent beauty of the Google Fiber Internet plan and its forecasted undermining of the monolithic structure that is US ISP’s. In this edition, we will briefly cover one of the services the plan serves to meet, and its a large segment of the market: HDTV. Broadband TV is not a new concept, with HDTV, DVR, and the now defunct TiVO, being used for the 1st generation of Internet based streaming video. Households now have the option to watch and record, just about anything they can lay their eyes on. Google intends…

It seems as if Moore’s Law is standing firm and being proven correct with the advancements of late, in social technology. Let’s take a quick peek at the undertaking of Google to meld reality and interweave it in the threads of cyberspace. This technology has actually been around a while and it’s called augmented reality, but Google appears to be taking it to a whole new level of surreal. In the modern world, our lives are being increasingly shaped and fundamentally changed by the progression of how cyberpsace is viewed and used. Project Glass, by Google, merely intends to make…

Android. We know the name but do we truly understand the ideals behind it? A few points to mull over before we begin this piece: Android is Google’s brainchild. Android is property of the public. Android is, and has been, a boon to mobile manufacturers, app developers, and retail outlets. Think about the above for a moment. Imagine a world without Android. Would we still have diversity in the market? Would Windows Phones have Android’s market dominance in a competitive battle with iOS? I surmise it wouldn’t but let’s backtrack for a moment. Google develops each release of Android. However,…
