The spring season is wonderful time for the tech world to reveal a ton of new products in many different categories of technology and gadgets. Many products have been released, announced and rumored to be coming to stores near you this early spring. The most popular gadgets that seem to get everyone’s attention are the new line of cellphones to be launched by Blackberry, Samsung, and of course Apple. The Blackberry Z10 is getting the most attention since they’re completely different from anything the folks down at Research in Motion ever put out.
Positive: RIM did a good job making it more consumer friendly, made a new slim, futuristic design, and a actually useable OS compared to the old one.
Negative: Compared to most Cell Phones these days, the BlackBerry’s OS does not cut out to what iOS, and more so for android. The quantity and quality of apps still need time to grow and improve overtime.
Another Device expected to release in the near future is the latest in the Galaxy Note Tablet series by Samsung. The Galaxy Note series is known for its nice bright touch screen display. It’s no secret that it’s going to be released very soon thanks to all of the leaked pictures and information striking the web daily.
The buzz in Japan is a new Sony PlayStation 4, which is rumoured to release sometime in late 2013. Reports have estimated to new console by Sony is going to be around $425 USD and going to be announced on February 20th along with other products that the future of Sony have to offer, and be put out in stores around January of this year. Sony has not responded to these any of the rumors.
The iPhone, or any product by apple for that matter is always bombarding the Internet, and many tech websites with tons of rumors. Alike every other iPhone the rumors for the iPhone 5S starting blowing up as soon as the iPhone 5 was announced. Sadly at he moment the rumors have no solid proof, and the supposed leaked pictures that were all over the internet the past month were reported as fake.
More in the news of tablets, the Microsoft Surface Pro recently has been released and it could be better then portrayed. With its amazingly crisp 1080p HD screen, the capabilities of a full-fledged ultra book, and it’s thin cover with they very portable keyboard. Although all these heaven like tablet features may be crossed out with the negatives of the tablet. The fact that it costs as much as a real laptop, its only 64 gigabytes which is extremely low for a laptop, and its very low battery life does make it so its not worth the $899 USD with the keyboard cover not included. We still have hope for the tablet but I think the tablet will progress in time.

That stops the complicated adjustments that snipers have to make for wind, weather, the dip of the bullet as it flies through the air and any movement by the target, and could mean that snipers’ targets could be hit from much further away.
Firefox hopes to regain some marketshare by history-wiping ‘Forget’ button.
Feeling ashamed of your latest Kim Kardashian news binge? The latest version of Firefox can easily forget all about it.
Firefox version 33.1 adds a new button called “Forget,” which lets users wipe only their most recent browsing history and cookies. Users can choose to forget the last 5 minutes, 2 hours or 24 hours of activity, while preserving all history and cookies prior to that timeframe.
Firefox has long offered a Private Browsing feature, which wipes all history and cookies once users close the private window. But that requires planning ahead. For users who browse normally and later realize they’d like to erase some evidence, they previously had to dig into the tools menu to find the “Clear Recent History” option. The Forget button brings some of those history-clearing options to the main toolbar, making them accessible with just a couple of clicks. It also takes the extra step of closing all current windows and opening a fresh one in their place.
Why this matters: Firefox’s market share has been trending downward for years as more people turn to Google Chrome, and efforts like an open Web app store andcustomizable interface have done little to boost the browser’s relevance. But the privacy angle is a compelling one, and even if it doesn’t reverse Firefox’s dwindling usage share, it at least gives users a reason to consider Firefox once again.
India getting high on twitter
New Delhi: In this age of a rapidly changing world, micro-blogging site Twitter is fast catching the fancy of Indians and as “news happens on Twitter, news breaks on Twitter”, the US-based company is very bullish on this country.
“With Twitter, anyone can share ideas with the whole world. Twitter is uniquely positioned to do that. The media industry understands Twitter is a companion to its business,” Rishi Jaitly, market director, South & Southeast Asia at Twitter told in an interview.
Globally, Twitter has 284 million monthly active users. Of those, over 77 percent are outside the United States. India is one of the fastest growing markets. The company declined to share any country-specific data.
Talking about 2014 and the rising popularity of Twitter, Jaitly said: “Twitter entered the Indian market a couple of years back. When we entered we knew 2014 will be an important year for us as there will be Lok Sabha elections and IPL during the year.”
“In India we have immersed ourselves with the media business. We have engaged ourselves with the ministry (of information and broadcasting, TV channels and leading stakeholders in the audience business,” he added.
Describing Twitter as a “mobile microphone”, Jaitly said it has given voice to people across the country.
“Our goal is to ensure every Indian with a mobile device is deriving value from Twitter every single day. There is space and relevance for everyone on the platform, whether you’re an FMCG brand, an automobile brand or a spiritual leader. We’ve seen that users in India tend to take to Twitter around news, politics, cricket and entertainment,” Jaitly said.
With 8.5 million followers, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi is currently the second most-followed political leader in the world after US President Barack Obama and continues to grow his followers at a rapid pace, Twitter’s data on 2014 shows.
The “Golden Tweet” of 2014 was Modi’s declaration of victory May 16, 2014 gaining 70,519 retweets celebrating his win.
In India in the last 18 months, there was 600 percent increase in conversations, with politics, governance and public issues being the most talked about, Jaitly said.
He was very optimistic about India and felt there are more opportunities awaiting in 2015. “In 2015 there will be cricket World Cup. We will concentrate more on partnerships and ensuring that businesses across India see values in Twitter.”
