Dog Dream House

They say pets can possibly live better lives than us humans. Check out this swanky looking dog house! One of the most notably biggest dog event, Crufts, is held in Brimingham NEC where Samsung featured their ‘Samsung Dream Doghouse’. It showcases a lavishly designed kennel with awesome tech built in. We see a cool treadmill, some really nice dog wallpapers, a dog food server and even a Samsung tablet nicely mounted on its lush interiors. Such is the quintessential for all the ultimate and affluent dog lovers.

I refer to a post on digitaltrends with regards to the possibilities of Samsung coming out with a new smartphone incorporating an iris-scanning security feature. Thats what we call future technology! Obviously such feature is what we often see in the movies. As reported, a hint from a tweet published on official Exynos Twitter account gave it away. The image you see a hypothesis of such innovation coming our way. Seriously, what is Apple doing anyway? And to think im actually waiting for the new iPhone! Users are tired of the swiping action, we need something new. Of course im exhilarated by this news, though I do have my own reservations on the feasibility of such features. Remember the last time they implement new awesome features that didnt exactly work like they do on their videos? Apparently some new features from Samsung tends to less useful but technically exciting. The article speculates a possible installation of this interesting feature on the Galaxy Note 4. Lets keep our fingers crossed.

 

Wall hugging?

Im sure this isn’t something new to all of us. Especially iPhone users out there, you KNOW it. The fact that we need to constantly plug in for battery power is beyond frustration. Somehow this video seemed to depict Samsung mitigating this issue. The new Samsung S5 with lesser power issues? Really? While I highly doubt so, I do think the commercial resonates with a lot of people out there. Most of us suffering from the mediocre battery performance from smartphones are compelled to make a switch to another brand often promising us longer, more robust battery performance. Well, i do think this is a rather amusing commercial of how Samsung would sell through benefit but at the expense of Apple.

Samsung Galaxy S5

I know this should have come much earlier. But the concise article from The Verge gave more insights to the upcoming Samsung S5. We see how important and convenient smart phones are to our social behaviors and remains perpetually integral in our daily routines. Samsung’s S4 had previously drove it’s offering to the stratosphere, leaving little room for its next innovation. While many might think that way, it might not be true. Im an iPhone user but occasionally, I would check out Samsung’s offerings. While there is little adjustment to the facade, the new innovation, S5, boosts a huge repertoire of new functions to woo you over. If being avant garde and living on the edge of technology is something up your alley, then this might just be the phone for you.

We now have a fingerprint scanner as well as several important features like an Android back button and capacitive keys. And I see how the tech giant is trying to move into the health segment by improving its gadgets to incorporate more personalized functions that aims to monitor your health progress. Atop of that, the S5 has attempted to built more functions around its home button too. These include tying up with merchants like Paypal making purchases through fingerprint scanning. Definitely a smartphone worth waiting for isn’t it?

Motorola Moto G

Smartphones have prove themselves almost as important as water is to our survival on a day to day basis. I cannot for once imagine if I leave home without a tech gadget. Worse, if it was my phone, I would drive back miles to retrieve it. Trust me, how can one possibly leave their door without their phone. Its insane. Ok, I’m sure you get the picture. As much I emphasis the significance of the phone, the huge attention and monetary values we invested in it comes naturally. A lot of us might not consider other brands apart from the current likes of the Apple iPhones or Samsung Notes. The reality is that we actually have a lot more on the table that is available for our selection. And they are no less inferior than your iconic iPhones or Samsung Note 3s. Introducing the Motorola Moto G. Look, I need to be honest, I was looking for a rather cheap phone but yet just as good as the iPhone. As much as I preach my devotion to Apple, I was hunting for a cheaper alternative to substitute as a work phone and I chanced upon the Moto G.

Some might even helm the Motorola Moto G as the new evolution of market-altering smartphone. Why is that so? It comes at a rather affordable price but packed with dynamite specs that makes it so competitive in the current smartphone landscape in Asia. 

“Don’t let the price fool you, this is a well-built phone”

When you price an item at a low cost, humans don’t desire it like they actually want it. We have weird tastes. True enough a good phone that comes with a cheaper tag sounds extremely fishy. Here’s some stuffs to consider if your planning to purchase the Moto G:

• Motorola is currently owned by Google. Which means it gives great user interaction and technology.
• Moto G currently uses Android 4.3 Jelly Bean but will soon be using the new 4.4 KitKat pre-installed. Talking about being stable? Nice.
• Motorola Protect gives you similar if not better features like your Find My iPhone service. When linked to your Google account, allows you own the thief by remotely locating the device, locking the screen and changing passwords.
• Motorola Assist silences your phone, goes into meeting mode or sleeping mode for your own pre-set desires.
• Motorola Migrate allows for a much easier transfer of data from your old phone to the Moto G.
• It also puts iPhone’s well acclaimed Retina Display to shame with it’s screen pixel density of 329ppi, 4.5-inch touchscreen packed with a 1280 x 720 pixel display screen. Waaadaa!
• Of course, the Moto G comes equipped in Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 400, running at 1.2GHz with a 1GB RAM.
• I think the coolest feature is getting our freedom from the charger BACK. The Moto G is able to multi task a number of apps and features simultaneously without much battery drainage. Absolutely necessary!

Taken from DigitalTrends:

Highs

  • An absolute bargain at $180 unconnected
  • Stock Android 4.3 Jelly Bean/Android 4.4 KitKat
  • Fast, capable processor
  • 4.5-inch, 720p screen is just about perfect
  • Excellent battery life

Lows

  • The camera is basic
  • A choice of 8GB or 16GB of memory
  • No removable battery
  • External speaker has to be cranked up to hear

Please go check this phone out.

Blackberry

Last week as I accompanied my mom to one of the telco retailer flagship stores, I was appalled by the fact that Blackberry smartphones are still taking up a significant space with quite a big number of phone offerings. As compared to Samsung or Apple, the BlackBerry phone range is quite comprehensive and some are not actually that bad. However, the company has been in a state of financial crisis since its last burst of fire and it has been reported that Fairfax Financial, a Canadian holding company did a $4.7 bullion buyout on Blackberry. Even with a huge backing, the company is still looking to close more possible deals with potential companies like Google, being amongst one of the boys on it’s top tier list. The company is reportedly pursuing big companies like LG, Samsung, Intel and Cisco for their keen interest in the company. They hope to hear an interest from these companies as soon as next week. With BlackBerry’s failure in the mobile market lately, it has since declared its retreat from the mobile market and most or if not all of their products might be sold to potential buyers. With 4500 layoffs and a big cut in market profits, the management is under extreme pressure to sell off the company. It’s a pity that BlackBerry had to retreat considering they aren’t that bad afterall.

Golden S4

You might be seeing another Gold phone coming up real soon. Shortly after the Apple revealed their gold champagne iPhone, Samsung took a bold step to counter offer it’s consumers with something just as good. Their offer was a new Gold Edition Galaxy S4. Looking at the visual, it does look very exclusive and classy. You can see two options that is available. There is the Golden Pink or the Golden Brown edition both of which Samsung is pushing off at the United Arab Emirates’ social media platforms. From the look of the ads, it seem to be scaled towards the middle east market. One thing to note is that Samsung also has the ability to counter Apple’s marketing efforts. I actually like the Golden Brown Edition and do hope it would make it’s way to Singapore.
