Apple + Pear = Fruitful Life!

March 15, 2011 1 comment

When I say Apple + Pear = Fruitful life! I simply mean that Apple Inc. products make your life simpler and fruitful. Be it the revolutionary iPhone®, iPad®, or iPod Touch®that keeps getting better with each new app or add-on.

One such product is the newly launched Peel and no you dont have to peel your iPhone®, iPad®, or iPod Touch® to make it to work :p

What is Peel?


Peel is all about discovering and controlling  TV programmes right from your iPhone®, iPad®, or iPod Touch®. Lose your remotes, once and for all. Quit scrolling those tiresome grid guides. See what you want, right at your own fingertips: your shows, your controls, your friends.

Why Peel?


Don’t you some time feel that it’s getting tougher and tougher to sit back and just watch TV. While it’s awesome that we have seemingly unlimited choices of shows to watch, finding a show and actually getting it onto your TV has become tough–channels are impossible to remember, grids are painful to navigate, remotes are all over the house, and sources are multiplying like rabbits in the Spring.  When you turn on TV, you’re just looking to see your shows.  Peel can help you with that.

How to Peel?

Peel universal control takes it to the next step.  Once you choose a show, simply tap Watch it on TV, and bang: you’re watching.  The grid is gone, channels and sources become invisible, and your inputs change like magic. It truly is TV made friendlier, but it doesn’t stop there.

Peel the App



Peel is designed to put the shows first.  Peel suggests programming you like, and it remembers when you interact with one, whether by sharing it, indicating it’s a favorite, or cutting it from your Top Picks.  The more you use the guide, the more tailored your Top Picks get.

Peel the Fruit


Everything looks slick but how do we make all this happen?  A little love, a little magic, and a little orb we call the Peel fruit. The Peel fruit sits almost anywhere in your living room, with no lights, no buttons, and no cables, and it controls your whole entertainment system, including the TV, cable box, Blu-Ray player, AV receiver, and more.  No more aiming at the system while your complicated remote goes through a long series of commands: control simply just happens. Your iPhone talks to the fruit through the other part of our system, the Peel cable, which plugs into your wireless router.  The Peel cable sends off commands, and the Peel fruit never misses–even when you’re in the other room grabbing a beer.

Time to download the Peel app or buy the Peel fruit from here – Peel App or buy Peel Fruit

Once you have the Peel App and the Peel Fruit – You just need to get Ready, Aim and Fire.

Samsung Galaxy S FroYo update dealyed again?

September 22, 2010 1 comment

Samsung appears to have delayed upgrading its flagship Galaxy S blower to Android 2.2 FroYo. The mobile maker has taken to Facebook over in Spain, where it’s told punters to expect its arrival in late October. If you were counting the days until the Froyo update hits the Samsung I9000 Galaxy S then you’ll have to count longer than expected. The update has been delayed in Spain and India and possibly other regions too.

Samsung Galaxy S - Froyo delayed again ?

There’s no official press release yet, instead the bad news trickled through Facebook (the Spanish page) and Twitter (the Samsung India account). Though the update will be available through Samsung Kies whenever its launched.

These are the two sources that claim that the launch has been delayed till October end. Till then, Let’s wait for the official word from Samsung.

PS:  Though there are unofficial ways of updating your GalaxyS to Froyo but that would void your warranty.

The NEW APPLE

September 2, 2010 1 comment

Apple was on a spree yesterday when it launched the new – iPOD Touch, iPod Nano, iPod Shuffle, Apple TV, iTunes 10. The only problem is that no matter how many new products they launch or updates they make Steve Jobs still wears the Black Tshirt he has been wearing since Apple incorporated. Mr.Jobs, If you can spend so much money on your products then why not spend a few $ for a new Tshirt 😐

Well lets just leave Mr.Jobs at the moment and see how the new products look like –

Now that you have had a glimpse of all of them, lets see them each and know their Tech-Specs.

1) Ipod Touch –

2) iPod Nano –

3) iPod Shuffle –

4) Apple TV –

Apple – WWDC : Why We Do Care?

June 8, 2010 1 comment

WWDC –  One of the most prestigious event when it comes to tech. The first thing you would like to know is –  What is WWDC?

The answer to that question is – WWDC is Apple Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) it is the premier technical conference for developers innovating with Apple technologies. Over 1,000 Apple engineers will be at Moscone West to present advanced coding and development techniques that will show you how to enhance the capabilities of your applications with the revolutionary technologies in iPhone OS and Mac OS X. But for me WWDC stands for – Why We Do Care ?

Not just that Over 5,000 of the world’s best and brightest Apple developers come together for the week-long Apple Worldwide Developers Conference at Moscone West, in San Francisco, California. This technical event provides you the opportunity to hear about the latest advancements in iPhone OS and Mac OS X through practical examples that you can apply directly to your app development. And trust a million others sit at home and read,tweet,blog about it.

One thing I fail to understand is WWDC (Why We Do Care) what Apple is doing? Has there ever been a time when Steve Jobs has launched something new and the World hasn’t gone hysterical about it, till the time its out in the market cos as soon we get our hands on to it we realise that nothing could have been dumber than this. Be it the most recently launched ‘Apple iPad’ while the people from all over the world were going gaga over it. I just passed one judgment about it and that explained everything about it. For me ‘Apple iPad’ is –  A dumber Macbook Air + A Bigger iPod Touch. You can’t call that silly bigger iPod Touch an invention. The only invention worth calling an invention was a sanitary pad or a writing pad but not iPad ever. And if anybody disagrees to it then please feel free to comment. I can mention everything about WWDC,the new iPhone,iOS4 etc but I am not going to waste my time on it as I am not a blogger who blogs what’s in the news or what will people read, I blog what I want people to know as the rest of the tech blogs are already doing the same job and I hate yellow journalism.

But for all those who really care about Apple WWDC, here are the best sources to know about it:

1) http://www.crunchgear.com/2010/06/07/live-from-apples-2010-wwdc-keynote/

2) http://www.macrumors.com/

5) http://www.technixupdate.com/17-new-features-in-ios-4-iphone-4-os/

Thats all for now but will post more soon as we move ahead in the WWDC – Why We Do Care 😉

Firefox 3.5 to Launch Today

July 1, 2009 1 comment

Firefox 3.5 – Faster, Safer, Smarter, Better Mozilla is all set to launch its latest Firefox browser today, the 30th of June. Shiretoko is the codename for Firefox 3.5, and it’s been expected for a while.

To recap, the list of new features includes a new privacy mode (the so-called ‘porn mode’ which Microsoft’s Internet Explorer, Apple’s Safari, and Google’s Chrome have all introduced already), location aware browsing, and video rendering without the need for plugins. A release candidate version of 3.5 has been available for some time, with positive reports in terms of speed and performance.

Key Points:

  • Twice as fast as Firefox 3 – The Fastest Firefox Yet

Things move quickly online, and we’ve beefed up the engine that runs Firefox to make sure you can keep up: Firefox 3.5 is more than twice as fast as Firefox 3, and ten times as fast as Firefox 2.* As a result, Web applications like email, photo sites and your favorite social networks will feel snappier and more responsive.

  • Private browsing, tear-off tabs and more – Advancing the Web

We’ve been working hard to make sure Firefox 3.5 brings you the best of the modern web. With new features like private browsing, tear-off tabs and enhancements to the Awesome Bar, plus major performance enhancements, you’ll enjoy life on the cutting edge.

  • The most advanced Firefox yet – Instant Website ID

Want to be extra sure about a site’s legitimacy before you make a purchase? Click on a site favicon for an instant identity overview. Another click digs deeper: how many times have you visited? Are your passwords saved? Check up on suspicious sites, avoid Web forgeries and make sure a site is what it claims to be.

And for all those who are already using firefox 3.x need to update it manually so either update it from check for update option or click here

So, My final word is – Make the switch to Firefox – the faster, safer, smarter way to browse the Web.

Free Copy – Ashampoo Burning Studio 2009 Advanced

But, what if I give it for free?? Yes, you read it right, I am giving this one helluva software Ashampoo Burning Studio 2009 Advanced with massive feature’s absolutely free to all my readers. Just click the link at the bottom of the post and get your free copy.

Easy, not limited

chip_download of the day Anyone who has ever struggled with complicated disc burning software is always amazed when they try Ashampoo Burning Studio. This is how software should be: Instead of studying complicated manuals you just choose what you want to do and then follow the instructions displayed on the screen. For example, to make a DVD you select Create a Video DVD and the program guides you through the steps of adding clips, building menus and burning the disc.

This doesn’t mean the program has been “dumbed down”: Burning Studio is a complete and powerful disc burning suite that also satisfies advanced users with all the tweaking features you expect from less accessible programs.

General program improvements
