The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Android/iOS Game Arriving On 17th April

Gameloft has finally revealed the release date for 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' game for Android, iOS and Windows Phone users. The mobile game will arrive on 17 April, and will be accessible via its respective app stores.


Last month, Gameloft and Marvel released the teaser trailer for the mobile game, which showcased some of the gameplay and villains such as Electro and Green Goblin, two arch-rivals of Spider-Man. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 also includes some of the other iconic villains from the Marvel universe.

This is the open-world sequel to Gameloft's first, Silver Award-winning mobile game adaptation of Marvel's arachnid-like superhero.

You'll be able to combo-hit all the goons you like, and sling as many webs around New York as you can handle. Probably while using an egregious number of Sony-brand products, if it's anything like the movie.

There's also a non-mobile version of the game that will be launching slightly closer to the moment the movie hits cinemas. It will be coming to 3DS (and every home console under the sun) on April 29th.

IUNI U2: A $320 (INR 20K) Phone with Snapdragon 800, 3 GB RAM and 16MP Camera

IUNI, a spin-off brand of China's Gionee (known for making the current world's thinnest Smartphone), is preparing a very interesting handset IUNI U2 which has a 2.2 GHz Snapdragon 800 CPU, 3GB RAM, and a 4.7-inch 1080p display with a pixel density of 469PPI inside.



But that's not all. Reportedly, IUNI wanted to make the best single-handed metal-clad phone possible, so it machined a 0.4 inch (10.2mm) thick body that's 2.56 inches (65mm) wide and 5.38 inches (136.9mm) tall. There is a 10-degree fold at the phone's top and bottom, and the chamfer has a shiny "3D polish".


Perhaps the most interesting part about the IUNI U2, aside from its clean design, handy size, and powerful hardware, are the cameras. At the back, you have a 16 megapixel shooter with a f/2.2 aperture that is capable of recording 1080p videos in a full 60 fps frame rate. Flip it over and you will be greeted by a 4 megapixel f/2.0 camera. Don't let that number fool you, however, since the camera is actually an UltraPixel, the same technology being brandished by the HTC One, and soon the New HTC One. Perfect for those selfies.



The IUNI U2 will run on its own IUNI OS based on Android 4.3. IUNI say their OS is devoid of bloatware and clutter making it a fast and streamlined system.

Chinese E-commerce site Jingdong Mall will be selling the IUNI U2, the 32GB version with 3GB of RAM is just CN¥1, 999 (about $320) unsubsidized, whereas the 16GB version with 2GB RAM is just CN¥1, 799 (about $290). International sales yet unknown.

WILL - A New Tech to Sharing Handwritten Notes

Wacom has been a leading supplier of pen tablets and interactive pen displays. Wacom has contributed to the evolution of creative: digital expressions, digital imaging, industrial design, games and movies.


WILL - Wacom Ink Layer Language is a single, cross-platform standard for sharing handwritten notes and sketches between users, regardless of whether they're using a stylus or a finger, an iPhone or a PC, an app or a browser. WILL captures a pen stroke's coordinates, pressure and the identity of its creator (through a unique "Pen ID"), as well as allowing the scribble to be edited by others. Users can also see other people's handwriting being created in real-time, i.e. we're not just talking about static images.

WILL is delivered by Wacom to partners as a Software Developer's Kit (SDK) to integrate into their hardware or software, ecosystem or enterprise infrastructure -- enabling everyone to speak the same universal inking language. WILL contains a set of development Application Programming Interfaces (API), to make use of hardware features.

Google will announce the Android 4.5 and Nexus 8 tablet in July

Google won't be using its annual I/O conference in June to announce the next, Android 4.5 version, claim insiders. The I/O event will be utilized to demonstrate a bunch of new Google services, while the Android-related announcements will be left for July.



The source, allegedly from Google's vast offices in Dublin, also tipped that his managers are talking a Nexus 8 tablet release, that will be used as a poster child for Android 4.5. Google is allegedly throwing in the towel on 7-inchers, due to the cutthroat competition that formed in that segment, and will take it up a notch, to the 8-inch realm. There's only a handful of Android slates in that market niche for now, like the Galaxy Note 8.0, Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4, and LG’s G Pad 8.3, so the move might be warranted.

This rumor contradicts the previous speculation that Google will be ready with the first batch of two million Nexus 8 tablet units, built by Asus, by the end of April. Nothing is mentioned about the eventual specs of the rumored tablet, though we've heard before that the Nexus 8 might be using Intel's new mobile processors. There is also no word yet on its pricing scheme, or what will be the new features in the speculated Android 4.5 update, but we've got plenty of time for more leaks to happen between now and the summer.

Mobile Phone Usage Has No Adverse Health Effects

An 11-year long UK study, encompassing 31 research projects worth $22.4 million (INR 138 Crores), produced a report which concludes that cell phone usage has no reported health effects, busting decades-old myths about wireless signals making us sick. The 60-page long report describes it has found “no evidence” that exposure to mobile network emissions during pregnancy increases the risk of developing cancer in early childhood, or that use of mobile phones can result in risk of leukemia.



We couldn't find anything about our favorite myth of all, which said that cell phones sitting in our pockets basically microwaved our private parts. However, we're now led to believe that they are safe from invisible harm as well.

Still, the report doesn't explicitly state that mobile users are entirely safe. The report ends by recommending further studying of possible impacts of mobile phone usage on kids, as well as potential adverse reflections on sleep and brain function. Thus, the research will continue with another long-term study, investigating whether there are any delayed adverse effects of mobile phone usage, which could become apparent only after years.

For the scientifically-inclined, the full report is available in the links below.

How to Obtain GPS Coordinates On Your Phone?

A geographic coordinate system is a coordinate system that enables every location on the Earth to be specified by a set of numbers or letters. The coordinates are often chosen such that one of the numbers represents vertical position, and two or three of the numbers represent horizontal position.


A common choice of coordinates is latitude, longitude and elevation. These values can be obtained by using Global Positioning System (GPS) on your phone.

One Touch Location is an android/iOS application which lets you to obtain GPS coordinates and address of your location. The accuracy of the values depends on the quality of the GPS receiver on your phone. Sources of error include signal arrival time measurements, numerical calculations, atmospheric effects, ephemeris, and clock data, multipath signals, and natural and artificial interference.




Using One Touch Location you can also share your location in the form of a Google Maps link, letting others track you over time. Plus, there's a built-in feature that lets you discover places of interest nearby.

Nokia X Running Android 4.1 Spotted

Nokia X (Normandy), has appeared on the CamSpeed database, the benchmark test of Sofica, with a pretty good score, indicating a fixed focus camera on the back, where the focusing time is essentially zero.


The forked Android-powered handset is said to sport a 5 MP snapper, though the resolution used for the CamSpeed test is 3 MP. It also should have 512 MB of RAM, 4 GB of internal memory expanded by a microSD card slot, as well as a 1500 mAh battery. It will be available in a dual-SIM version, codenamed RM-980, which is the one appearing on CamSpeed, and will arrive in six jolly colors, aimed at teens and emerging markets.


Nokia is allegedly reshuffling its MWC event plans after it became clear that Samsung decide to pull the Galaxy S5 unveiling forward to the expo timeframe, so it's unclear if and when Normandy will be unleashed. It is expected to be announced as part of the Asha family, presenting an interesting twist of fate for Nokia's budget portfolio, as it will be its first commercial handset with Android on it, albeit evidently a highly modified one.

Aviate - An Intelligent Andoid Launcher Acquired by Yahoo for $80M

Aviate is an intelligent home screen replacement Android app which was recently acquired by Yahoo for $80M.

During CES 2014, Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer was on hand to deliver a keynote. During the keynote, she mentioned that Yahoo had just purchased a company called Aviate. That company makes software that replaces the standard home screen on Android devices.



Aviate automatically categorizes all of your apps, and intelligently rearranges your homescreen throughout the day to dynamically give you the apps and information you need most, at precisely the moment you need it.


Aviate uses a variety of factors, including the time of day and your location to determine what you’re likely doing, and provide the appropriate apps, buttons, and links for that moment. For example, when you wake up and unlock your phone, Aviate provides a widget filled with your next few appointments, the weather, and even an icon for Twitter, since you like to scan news headlines in the morning. On the way to work, Aviate pops up Waze, Pandora, and Gas Buddy. When you head out to lunch, your home screen adapts itself to the restaurant you’re in, providing photos and tips from Foursquare, as well as the option to check in. As you walk to your car after happy hour that evening, Aviate pops up quick links to get directions home and check on traffic. When you plug in your headphones for an evening walk, your music apps appear. And finally, as you slump into bed after a long day, your home screen includes a new "Set Alarm" button, and a link to your Kindle app.


 Now, Aviate is finally free for everyone to try on the Google Play store, and all it takes it to put in “YAHOO” when it asks you for a code.

iPhone 6 Air Initial Leaks

Apple will release two new models in 2014. But unlike last year when both the Apple iPhone 5s and Apple iPhone 5c sported 4 inch glass, this year one new iPhone will wear a 4.7 inch screen, while the other will be a phablet sized 5.7 inches.


Additionally, both models will offer an undisclosed form of biometrics. This could mean that both models could feature the Touch ID fingerprint scanner embedded in the home button of the Apple iPhone 5s, or it could mean that Apple will be using an eye scanner.

First images of the metal housing iPhone 6, or " iPhone Air ", appeared on the web. The rear of the metal housing of small thickness presumably serves as a basis for the new flagship Apple.



The thickness of the iPhone Air will be only 6 mm, and the screen size will be 4.7 or 5.7 inches as mentioned earlier.

iPhone camera module supplier Largan Precision saw its stock take a significant dip yesterday amid rumors that Apple will not be upgrading the resolution of the rear camera for the iPhone 6 later this year, reports The China Post.

The report cites analysts from Nomura Securities who indicate that while the iPhone 6 should see some camera improvements such as enhanced optical image stabilization, the device will continue to use an 8-megapixel sensor rather than a higher-resolution sensor in the 12-16 megapixel range.

Nevertheless, this information can not be considered reliable, so treat it critically.

50 Cent headphones

50 Cent in collaboration with Lucasfilm released a series of thematic headphones devoted universe Star Wars. The new line will be available for sale for a limited time and will be supplied with a certificate of authenticity and various souvenirs in the box with the logo of Star Wars.

4 versions of Headphone are available: Stormtrooper ("Assault"), Rebel Alliance ("rebels"), Boba Fett ("Boba Fett") and Imperial edition.

Basketball fans may be interested in another line of headphones - Audio Sport, dedicated to Carmelo Anthony. 3 models of headphones that are included in this series include both wireless and wired accessories, the latter are protected from tangling wires. As a bonus, each buyer will receive the complete collection towel and headphones themselves will be available in three colors.



Headphones go on sale for as low as $ 80 to $ 180 for wired and wireless headphones, respectively.

Project S - A 299$ Ideal Smartphone with High-End Specifications and Features

Sony's flagship phones have best Uni-body Design with water and dust resistance but the performance is not the best in the industry while Samsung phones have better features and performance but lacks good design. Still these phones are over priced. The best phones of any manufacturers may be the top-selling or they may have the best specifications in the industry but they are not IDEAL.


An Ideal phone is one which has top notch specifications, best in class Design, innovative features, maximum durability and is nominally priced.  

Project S is now a trending topic among tech enthusiasts because it is on the verge of manufacturing an Ideal Smartphone.

Display


The Phone features a 5.8" WQHD Display with the resolution of 2560x1440. The screen is protected with scratch resistant tempered glass.

Design

The has an ergonomic design which allow fingers easily grip. The Aluminum unibody Project S phones have double side scratch resistant glass like Sony Xperia Z. The phon e is just 7.6mm thick. Unlike SXZ the speakers and microphone are hidden to maintain the unibody design. The phone is dust and water resistant. Black and white colors are available.


Processor and Memory

This phone is a powerhouse, unlike Samsung phones it has True Octa-core processor optimized with ARM Big LITTLE Tech. The phones have 3GB RAM and 32GB internal storage which can be expandable up to 64GB using an SD card.

Camera



The phones boasts a 16MP camera with LED shutter which can record up to 2160p @30fps and it also has features like OIS, HDR, etc. The front 2MP camera is more than enough for video calls and its can also record 1080p videos @30fps.

Other Features

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas - Android Game Review

Grand Theft Auto - San Andreas is one of the most popular games of all the time. The Guinness World Records 2009 Gamer's Edition had listed GTA SA as the most successful game in the PlayStation 2, with 17.33 million copies sold for that console alone, from a total of 21.5 million in all formats. The open world action-adventure legend video game developed by Rockstar is now available for Android and iOS.


Plot

GTA: SA is an open world game where you play as an ex-gang banger named Carl. Five years ago, Carl Johnson escaped from the pressures of life in Los Santos, San Andreas, a city tearing itself apart with gang trouble, drugs and corruption. Where filmstars and millionaires do their best to avoid the dealers and gangbangers.



Now, it’s the early 90’s. Carl’s got to go home. His mother has been murdered, his family has fallen apart and his childhood friends are all heading towards disaster.

On his return to the neighborhood, a couple of corrupt cops frame him for homicide. CJ is forced on a journey that takes him across the entire state of San Andreas, to save his family and to take control of the streets.



Gameplay

This Open World game is mission based but If a player is not ready to go for a mission he can simply cruise around and kill some people.



On foot, the player's character is capable of walking, eating, running, sprinting and swimming as well as using weapons and hand to hand combat.

Players can drive a variety of vehicles, including automobiles, buses,  boats, helicopters, trains, tanks, motorcycles and bikes. Players can also play side mission by stealing taxis, Ambulances or Fire Trucks.



Rockstar has emphasized the personalization of the main protagonist by adding many role-playing game elements. Clothing, accessories, haircuts, jewelry, and tattoos are now available for purchase by the player, and have more of an effect on non-player characters' reactions than the clothing in Vice City. CJ's level of respect among his fellow recruits and street friends varies according to his appearance and actions, as do his relationships with his girlfriends.



Players must also ensure CJ eats to stay healthy and also exercises properly. The balance of food and physical activity has an effect on his appearance and physical attributes.

Graphics

GTA: SA is one of the games with richest graphics available now for mobile platforms. Though the graphics of the game look similar to original GTA: SA, it has some upgrades and enhancements from the original game which includes newly remastered graphics, consisting of dynamic and detailed shadows, a greater draw distance, an enriched color palette, plus enhanced character and car models.


Many people have complained about the game lag and crash even in some high end phones. Rockstar will definitely fix them soon. The game performance can also be improved by changing the graphic options like resolutions, shadows and reflections.



Controls

Rockstar has done a good job by providing various options to redefine the controls. But the Touch adapted controls are not that simple to play but one can master them soon. To completely enjoy, I recommended to use some controllers to play the game.





Verdict

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is the most entertaining game available for mobile platforms. Apart from some graphic issues with the game, it scores well in all areas. The game costs 7$. It has 70 hours of gameplay and there are no In-App purchases, thus it's worth buying. Rockstar also offers cloud save support for playing across all your mobile devices for Rockstar Social Club Members.



Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas will change the face of the gaming industry and now we can expect true console like games for our phones from Gameloft, EA, etc.
