The Alexa Alarm Clock: What Amazon's New Echo Spot Can and Can't Do
The Alexa Alarm Clock: What Amazon's New Echo Spot Can and Can't Do
Connected speakers are currently the electronics industry's biggest hit. However, the market leader in connected speakers is not an audio specialist like Sony, Bose or Pioneer, but rather the online retail giant Amazon.Now nearly three years after Amazon introduced its first Echo speaker, the company has released a second connected speaker with a camera and screen, the Echo Spot.Visually, the Echo Spot could also pass for a designer alarm clock from the 1970s, with a 2.5-inch screen built into the front of an almost spherical casing.As with other devices in the Amazon Echo family, the Spot listens for key words like "Alexa", "Echo" or "Amazon" to then transmit voice commands to the Cloud. Alexa can order you a taxi, answer general knowledge questions, read out the latest headlines, even tell you a joke.Customers of Amazon Music can also listen to sports games or hear live news reports on the Echo loudspeakers. Additional functions are available via apps, which Amazon calls "skills".Users can transform the Echo into a small control centre for a smart home with these apps, for example, and use Alexa to open up the networked garage door or turn off the lights in the storage closet.With a price tag of US$115 (RM447.90), the Echo Spot ranks in the midfield of Amazon's Echo product range. The Echo Spot's screen displays the time or the weather by default, and users can select from among 17 different clock faces, similar to a smart watch.Unfortunately, the screen is surrounded by a thick border, which reduces the usable area of the screen. The Spot is controlled by finger swipes and primarily by voice command, which functioned seamlessly in tests.The display automatically adjusts the brightness level to the surrounding lighting. In addition, the Echo Show contains a night mode where the screen is strongly dimmed. Still, the Spot's night mode can only be activated within fixed times (for example, daily from 10pm to 7am) and not spontaneously by voice command - something Amazon should improve.With a resolution of 480 x 480 pixels, the Spot's screen is suitable for video conferences with other Echo Spots, the Echo Show or smartphones with the Alexa app. Video counterparts appear reasonably sharp on the round display screen and can be understood well via the built-in speakers.Video quality could nevertheless have been better had Amazon not skimped on the quality of the webcam. With the Echo Spot, the camera only provides a VGA resolution of 640 x 480 pixels. The Echo Show, the Spot's big brother, was equipped with a webcam with a 5 megapixel resolution, however.In addition to normal video calls, there is also a so-called "drop-in function" that connects directly to a receiver - provided all participants have given consent. With this function, the Echo Spot can also be turned into a baby monitor. Still, unfortunately only Amazon Chats are supported with this feature and not other services like Skype.Given its round display screen, the Echo Spot is only partially suitable for viewing films. Images are brutally cut off on both the left and right sides in zoom mode, while a thick black border frames the screen from above and below in normal mode, making the actual picture image so small that it's barely recognizable.The quality of the loudspeaker is fully sufficient for voice commands from Alexa and the alarm clock function. However, if users want to play music with the Echo Spot, they would do better to connect the device to a larger loudspeaker or audio system.So far, so good, but what remains unclear from these tests is the primary purpose of the Echo Spot. On the one hand, Amazon is positioning the Spot as a modern radio alarm clock for the bedroom.But important functions like the activation of night mode are far too laboriously configured for this. And on the other hand, data protection activists aren't the only ones who'll ask themselves whether putting a networked device with a built-in video camera in the bedroom is such a good idea.The Spot cuts a better figure on desks, especially when users like to have frequent and simple video chats with the same contacts. But the Echo Spot could become more valuable in the future, namely when more apps from Amazon and third-party providers are better adapted for the Spot's round display screen.- dpa Get the Amazon Echo speaker right now at Lazada.To download the Lazada App and start shopping on your mobile devices, click here
Google Glasses Prompt Privacy Fears
Google Glasses Prompt Privacy Fears
It is set to be the next big thing for gadget lovers everywhere - but users of Google Glass, a high-tech pair of spectacles with in-built hands-free video camera and internet access, are being given some basic advice: Take them off when visiting public conveniences.Some attendees forgot to remove their Google Glass during calls of nature at a Google developers conference in San Francisco. The device has already raised privacy fears because it can record video far less conspicuously than a handheld device and could make it difficult for people to know when they are on camera.Drew Olanoff, reviewing Glass for the Techcrunch website, said: "In its current state, Glass is a utility that allows you to do some of the things that your smartphone does now. The difference with Glass is that you can do these things hands-free, quicker than before and in a less socially disruptive way."Still, we heard about people wearing Glass in the bathroom, as if to remind us that not everyone is ready to feed into the hype of the device."Alex Roth, a technology reviewer for Techradar, said: "Google is actively trying to reduce the voyeur factor by making it rather obvious when Glass is engaged. The screen emits a glow when in use, and spoken commands like 'take a picture' make sure those around you are clued in to what you're doing. You also have to look up to read the screen, so broken eye contact will be a dead giveaway. Your friends will know when you're checking football scores instead of listening to them. It also suffers a similar stigma to the Bluetooth earpiece, in that it's distracting, and a bit goofy looking."Google executive chairman Eric Schmidt dismissed concerns about privacy during a talk at Harvard University's Kennedy School of Government in April, saying: "Criticisms are inevitably from people who are afraid of change or who have not figured out that there will be an adaptation of society to it."Google Glass is supposed to perform many of the same tasks as smartphones, except the glasses respond to voice commands instead of fingers touching a display screen. The glasses are equipped with a camera and tiny display screen attached to a rim above the right eye.Users can speak to the glasses as well as record video, access email, get driving directions and surf the internet by connecting wirelessly to a user's cell phone.Google Glasses have yet to go on open sale but are being tested by a selected group of users in the US. The company also sold an unspecified number of Explorer models to computer programmers last year. The finished product is expected to cost around 1,000.Nick Pickles, director of privacy campaign group Big Brother Watch, said: "Google Glass doesn't just challenge our assumptions about consent, it challenges whether we even have a choice any more. It makes it seem perfectly normal to collect data on other people, without ever asking their permission and that is a dangerous step that poses a fundamental threat to our current notion of privacy. People wearing Google Glass don't own the data, they don't control the data and they definitely don't know what happens to the data. This is turning members of the public into a Google army, collecting data for the sole benefit of selling advertising and boosting Google's profits."PA Media
IPhone 8 Screen Can Be Scratched by Sand, Says Apple ...
IPhone 8 Screen Can Be Scratched by Sand, Says Apple ...
Sand will leave scratches on the new iPhone 8 screen and Apple 'cut corners' with its sapphire camera lens.That's the opinion of one tech expert who tested the phone's durability.YouTube's JerryRigEverything channel dismantled the new model and scratch-tested the screen using the Mohs scale - a test that uses graded picks to measure the resistance to hardness.He explains: 'Plastic screen phones would scratch at a level three. Glass is usually around a five or a six on the Mohs scale, and real sapphire scratches at a level eight or nine.'The iPhone 8 display screen scratched at a level six, and suffered a deeper groove at level seven,which is the exact same score the iPhone 7 got last year.The expert continued: 'When Apple says 'most durable', they might be talking about impacts or drops instead of scratch resistance.'Even though my screen is impervious to my razor blade, coins and keys, I would still recommend a screen protector - plenty of other dust, minerals and pocket sand are harder than a level six, and can cause micro-abrasions.'But he took real issue with the iPhone's camera lens, which Apple claims to be made from sapphire.It scratched more easily than he expected it to.He said: 'It looks like Apple's still using their own proprietary blend of sapphire. It is indeed aluminum-oxide, which is the ingredients of sapphire. But my Mohs picks and an electron microscope indicate that it is a lower-grade material than the actual pure sapphire that's used in Tissot's premium high-end watches.'It's my opinion that they cut some corners with this sapphire stuff.'The iPhone 8 models come in a series of new colors including gold.Apple said they include the highest-quality video ever for the iPhone and new 'portrait mode' for the camera.Other features include augmented reality gaming.iPhone 8's will start at $699, and the Plus model at $799.They will be out on September 22.
Vancouver's Recon Instruments Acquired by Intel
Vancouver's Recon Instruments Acquired by Intel
Recon Instruments, creator of smart sports glasses and, has been acquired by Intel.The companies announced this morning they closed the deal Tuesday, although terms were not disclosed.Recon, which was launched in 2008, successfully spinning off technology developed at the University of BC, created the first heads-up display for eyewear, even before Google Glass made its first and somewhat limited appearance.Co-founded by Dan Eisenhardt, the company's CEO along with CTO Hamid Abdollahi, Recon released its first consumer HUD technology in ski and snowboard goggles that delivered GPS and other data to a tiny screen in front of the user's eye.In a post on the acquisition, Eisenhardt said the company and staff will remain in Vancouver. He said joining Intel will give Recon the resources it needs to develop its smart eyewear business."Not only is this a huge milestone for us and a pivotal event in the consumer electronics industry; we at Recon believe this is also a tremendous opportunity that will lead to amazing things, just as much for us as for our customers," Eisenhardt said in the post."...As part of Intel, we'll have the resources to continue the mission we began with the creation of Recon in 2008, but with a level of efficacy and speed that's beyond the reach of a pioneer in a new market. We'll stay right here in Vancouver, and we'll retain our talent, our brand, and our entrepreneurial spirit," said Eisenhardt, who was an internationally competitive swimmer and first conceived of the idea for a heads-up display for swimming.Most recently, after a successful online fundraising campaign, , smart glasses for biking and other sports that have a tiny display screen that's the equivalents of a 76 centimetre (30-inch screen) viewed from two metres away. The Recon Jet has a camera that shoots stills and video, built-in GPS and other sensors including an accelerometer, gyroscope, altimeter, barometer, and magnetometer. TheJet also hasANT, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi wireless connectivity and can be paired with a smartphone for text message, caller ID and posting to social media networks.Acquiring Recon gives Intel a considerable boost in the fast-growing wearables market."This acquisition gives Intel a talented, experienced wearable computing team that will help us expand the market for head mounted display products and technologies," Josh Walden, senior vice president and general manager of Intel's New Technology Group said in a release."Customers and retailers of Recon products can rest assured they'll continue selling, enhancing and marketing their products under the Recon brand without disruption. The team will also partner with Intel's New Devices Group to develop smart device platforms for a broader set of customers and market segments."In this video, Eisenhardt talks about the lean beginnings of the company in a small and unassuming office at the UBC campus, where he and Abdollahi used to try and hide a big stain on the floorwhen visitors arrived for meetings.

6 Quick Tips About Best Fish Finder
6 Quick Tips About Best Fish Finder
The fish finder is a thing with which people can know the location of the fish beneath the water. It is important to take the fish finder when going to catch the fish because in the middle of the sea, you do not know where the fish is.And to know proper information about the fish, you have to choose the best fish finder. But choosing the right one is not that easy. You have to either a techie person or you have to use it before. That is why you need to follow some tips about the best fish finder. Here are some tips about the best fish finder. If you need a suggestion for best fish finder, you can check betafishing.com where you will get an unbiased review of some of the best fish finder.1. Higher Frequency Frequency is the thing with which the fish finder finds the location of the fish. That is why frequency is very much important. And if the fish finder produces high frequency, you will get more information in your screen about the fish. So the best fish finder should produce a high frequency.2. More Power Power is another important thing to consider. Maybe you know power is the thing that controls the strength of the machine. The higher the power, the more the strength. Many people just think about the frequency when buying the fish finder rather than the power. But the thing is that you cannot get the right result unless you have the proper power, no matter how high your frequency is.3. Display screen Once upon a time, people used a black and white screen. But those days are gone. Now when everything is getting digitalized, fish finder comes with a colour display screen. So you should take the colour display screen rather than a black and white screen. And also, you should go for a larger display screen with higher resolution so that you can check the location of the fish more accurately.4. Portability Since you are going to carry the fish finder, it is important for the fish finder to be portable. It should be lightweight and easy to carry. You might go to the middle of the sea to catch fish where a portable fish finder will come to work.5. Scanning Fish finder scans in two way. Either it scans down or side. If you buy the one that scans side, it will not be effective in deep water. And if you go for the other one, that might miss some things. So it is recommended to buy both of them to get the best result.6. Price Always go for the quality. I always say this to people. Some people go for the exclusive one all the time where some people want to save money always. Both are bad. Higher price does not mean good quality and you cannot get the best one at a cheaper price. So it is best to go for the best quality always.Follow these tips and I hope you will get the best one for sure.
Lurking in Apple's Future: Transparent Displays and Styluses?
Lurking in Apple's Future: Transparent Displays and Styluses?
A number of recent patent applications suggest that Apple is exploring technologies that could change the way consumers use its iOS-based devices: styluses and transparent displays.Styluses aren't new by a long shot. Touch screen technology has often been paired with a stylus in the past: Microsoft (MSFT) and its various pen-driven Windows interfaces, Palm with stylus-carrying PDAs, and Wacom (WACMF), which has long made graphics tablets and, more recently, combination tablets and displays, are three vendors that come immediately to mind. Steve Jobs dismissed using a stylus in 2007:If you've ever used a mobile device that needed a stylus, you'd know how annoying it can be to lose it. But it's more likely that Jobs likely wanted to distance the iPhone, with its pure touch interface, from the extensive number of products that had previously used a stylus on a touch-sensitive surface. There are times when a finger tip simply won't do. Trending News LIVE: Tony Awards Deadly Crane Collapse Trophy Hunting Documentary Women's World Cup Even now, Apple already sells third-party styluses as products that "adapt iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch for special needs." Patent applications over the last few months show Apple's developing interests in specialty pen and display combinations. A patent application from January and two more from today show Apple's continued interests in stylus computing. The January application and number 20110162894 from today both focus on a capacitive stylus that would work with the type of touch technology Apple currently uses. Below is a drawing from the application that makes the intended use clear:Although there is massive prior art for using a stylus on a tablet, previous examples generally used resistive technology, in which pressure causes two conductive layers to touch and complete an electric circuit, which identifies the position on the surface.Apple uses capacitive screens, which require a new approach to work, as the first independent claim from the application filed January 2010 and made public today shows:A stylus comprising: a body having a first end and a second end; a tip located at a first end of the body, wherein the tip capacitively couples a user to an input device touched by the tip.The capacitive pen might pass muster as being significant different from previous work in the field, though it may have challenges. (Samsung, for example, has come out with a capacitive touch screen stylus for the Galaxy Tab tablet.) The other application, number 20110164000, is for a communicating stylus that would let the user write on paper, a whiteboard, or some other surface and then display on a screen what had been written.Again, the concept isn't new, but doesn't have to be for Apple to find a particular variant to patent. The more important point is to see the company's potential strategic direction.More intriguing, in terms of what it could mean for device design, is patent application 20110164047 for a transparent electronic display. Again, because the concept and not the breadth of legal protection is of primary interest, here is the abstract:A method and system for displaying images on a transparent display of an electronic device. The display may include one or more display screens as well as a flexible circuit for connecting the display screens with internal circuitry of the electronic device. Furthermore, the display screens may allow for overlaying of images over real world viewable objects, as well as a visible window to be present on an otherwise opaque display screen. Additionally, the display may include active and passive display screens that may be utilized based on images to be displayed.You'd be able to actually see through the screen, like a window capable of displaying images. You can imagine a variety of uses for something like this, such as the following:augmented reality, in which information would display over something you looked at in the real world augmentation of existing video programming without having to go into the video stream itself an actual window in a building that could immediately turn into an electronic display, either for entertainment or for marketing and merchandisingRelated:Relax, Everyone -- Apple's New Multi-Touch Patent Won't Kill Its Smartphone Rivals Apple Wants To Store Your History in the Cloud Apple Invents at Home, Other Tech Companies Need Overseas R&D
