    Adobe Launches Creative Suite 6 and Creative Cloud Service
    After a series of sneak previews and early announcements, Adobe now is detailing the full CS6 line, the meat and potatoes of Adobe's business. It has formally announced its upcoming Creative Cloud service, along with Adobe Creative Suite 6. It's important to a large number of people involved with photography, videography, design, and publishing on the Web or on paper, and it's set to be arrive within 30 days, and Adobe streams a launch event on April 23.

    The Adobe Creative Cloud is a subscription-based offering that is a hub for making, sharing and delivering creative work and it is centered around a the new release of Adobe Creative Suite 6 software, which features new design, Web, video and digital imaging tools. Adobe first announced its Creative Cloud in October 2011 at its MAX conference in Los Angeles. Those who currently have an Adobe subscription or own Adobe CS3 through CS5.5 can get a subscription for $29.99 per month for a year. But CS products aren't cheap, so Adobe must periodically add something new to keep people coming back. This time around, Adobe is adapting CS6 for more advanced Web design and publishing on mobile devices, and it's got a major new way to buy the products for $50 a month, the new subscription plan called Creative Cloud. For CS3, CS4, and CS5.x customers, Adobe is offering an introductory offer of $30 per month.

    “The urge to be creative is universal, and harnessing the creative spark – in everyone from school children to creative pros – has never been more important,” said Shantanu Narayen, Adobe’s president and CEO, in a statement. “Wherever and whenever inspiration strikes, Adobe will be there to help capture, refine and publish your ideas.” The new CS6 release features Adobe Photoshop CS6, Adobe InDesign CS6, Adobe Illustrator CS6, Adobe Dreamweaver CS6, Adobe Premiere Pro CS6, Adobe After Effects CS6, Adobe Flash Professional CS6 and more. Adobe Creative Cloud integrates Adobe’s line of creative touch tools with CS6 desktop applications. Adobe Touch Apps bring professional-level creativity to tablet devices and address multiple areas of the creative process: image editing, ideation, sketching, mood board creation, website and mobile app prototyping, and the presentation of finished work. Photoshop Touch and Adobe Ideas are already available on the iPad and Android tablets: Adobe Collage, Adobe Debut and Adobe Proto.

    The new version will thrill nearly all categories of users, from photographers to designers. Sure, it isn't cheap, but Photoshop remains the ultimate image editor of choice, and it's refreshing to see the makers of such a successful program not sitting on their laurels, but instead continuing to make impressive advances in their art. The all-encompassing Master Collection CS6 costs $2,599 new and $549 to upgrade; the more basic Design Standard costs $1,299/$299; and the Production Premium and the newly consolidated Design and Web Premium options each cost $1,899/$399.

    Apple's attitude to Agency Model
    After Jobs, Apple live through so many things, the charges, proview, and so on, this kind of things is coming one by one... April Earlier the U.S. Department of Justice and authorities in several other countries announced that they were filing lawsuits against Apple and six book publishers, alleging anticompetitive behavior in shifting to an Apple-backed agency model in which publishers set retail pricing and retailers such as Apple receive a 30% commission on the sales price.

    Apple has stood firm in its stance that the move did not represent collusion and price fixing but instead served as a way to give publishers control over pricing and break up Amazon's near-monopoly in the e-book market. Former Wall Street Journal publisher and Press+ founder Gordon Crovitz published a column over the weekend outlining how Apple's plan for a 30% commission on publishers' sales is merely its standard business practice, not any sort of collusion to fix prices in the market.
    'I don't think you understand. We can't treat newspapers or magazines any differently than we treat FarmVille."

    With those words, senior Apple executive Eddy Cue stuck to his take-it-or-leave-it business model of a 30% revenue share payable for transactions through the iTunes service. Despite my arguments to Mr. Cue in Apple's Cupertino, Calif., offices last year on behalf of news publishers seeking different terms, to him there was no difference between a newspaper and an online game.

    It was a sobering reminder that traditional media brands have no preferred place in the new digital world. It also should be the defense's Exhibit A in the Justice Department's antitrust case against Apple and book publishers: The 30% revenue-share model is Apple's standard practice, not, as alleged by the government, the product of a conspiracy.
    Over the past couple of years, thanks to the agency model, the Kindle's market share has fallen to 60% [from 90% previously] thanks to competition from iPads and Barnes & Noble Nooks, and there is more variation in consumer prices, typically ranging from $5.95 to $14.95.

    Pricing flexibility for publishers is necessary to allow innovation.
    With settlements already looking at unwinding the agency model to allow Amazon to once again begin controlling the e-book market by leveraging its consistent $9.99 pricing to drive competitors out of business, investors have become increasingly skittish about Barnes & Noble and other retailers trying to stake out their positions in the market. Consequently, there are real fears among authors, publishers, and retailers that the federal government's efforts are working quickly to restore an Amazon monopoly capable of bringing down its competitors.

    The Outcry Going On Around the Internet Right Regarding CISPA
    The Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act of 2011 (CISPA), which has yet to be debated before the full House, is being called everything from the “Son of SOPA” to a dangerous invasion of First Amendment rights. Opposition to pending cyber-security legislation ramped up when several high-profile Internet groups joined forces to protest the CISPA.

    SOPA, the “Stop Online Piracy Act,” caused furious protests by Internet companies, Web users at large and First Amendment advocates claiming that the proposed legislation would stifle free speech and give law enforcement excessive powers to shut down Websites without judicial review. New revisions to a proposed federal cyber security law still would permit Internet companies to hand over confidential customer records and communications to the National Security Agency. A coalition of Internet advocacy groups - including the American Civil Liberties Union, the Electronic Frontier Foundation, and Reporters without Borders - launched "a week of Internet-wide protests" today, which calls on Web users to tweet their lawmakers with their opposition to the bill. A recent torrent of criticism prompted the politicians behind the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act to circulate a revised version of CISPA this evening before an expected floor vote next week. But the authors made only relatively minor tweaks.

    The current text of CISPA is also online, as are an amendment that would prevent any quid-pro-quo forcing of information sharing and one that adds a reporting requirement. Note that the amendments are written by the sponsors of the bill, so their incorporation into the final draft is certain. What sparked the privacy worries is the section of CISPA that says "notwithstanding any other provision of law," companies may share information "with any other entity, including the federal government." The effort comes several days after Facebook voiced its support for CISPA. Joel Kaplan, vice president of U.S. public policy at Facebook, argued that the bill will help guard the social network against cyber attacks via information sharing and denied that any user information will be shared with the government. A copy of the bill is available on the committee website, as is a Q&A about the legislation. It was approved by the panel in December by a vote of 17 to 1, but has not yet been considered by the full House or Senate.

    "We have maintained an open door for all interested parties since the drafting of this bill began last year, and we appreciate all the constructive feedback and input we have received," House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers said in a statement. "This transparent process has involved hundreds of meetings and phone calls and has certainly made this a better bill.” Aircraft maker Boeing was reportedly attacked, and the information gathered was used by the Chinese government in the development of its own passenger aircraft. Such attacks are relentless and unlike in the U.S. and Western Europe, they’re not just for military advantage.

    Apple Planning to Launch a New iPad Mini
    Although Apple’s new iPad has only been on store shelves for weeks, the company is planning to launch a new slate, called the iPad Mini. Rumormongers have been spreading tales of a miniature, 7-inch Apple tablet since before Apple even released its first iPad in 2010. It’s reported that the pint-size Apple tablet will land in the third quarter of this year to “counter attack” upcoming Windows 8 tablets and 6 million units will be ready for launch, and the smaller tablet could sell for $249 to $299.

    The device will come with a smaller screen size and a far more affordable price tag, and compete against Amazon’s Kindle Fire and the Barnes & Noble Nook Tablet. If and when the device launches, it could be a sales juggernaut. Foxconn and Pegatron are reportedly making the mini iPad. As Kotaku pointed out, "Pegatron was at one point a subsidiary of Asustek, who are currently working with Google on the next line of Android tablets.” While Steve Jobs himself has dismissed the notion of a smaller iPad, rumors have continued to pop up that Apple is readying a smaller version of its iPad. The success of Amazon's Kindle Fire, which has sold well largely thanks to its lower price tag, may have convinced Apple that there is an opportunity for a smaller, more affordable tablet. Analysts have said such a device would help it maintain its lead over competitors.

    Apple has a 7.85-inch iPad in its labs, various claims of Apple moving closer to production of the smaller iPad have also been surfacing as rumors continue to swirl. Apple may be preparing the smaller iPad as a response to the expected launch of competitive devices running on Windows 8, according to the report. While Android tablets haven't sold as well, Microsoft could have more luck given the potential to integrate desktop, laptop, and tablet operating systems. Rumors about a smaller iPad have been circulating since before the March launch of the new iPad, which retained its 9.7-inch size. Back in December, there were reports that Apple had purchased 7.85-inch panels from LG Display and AU Optronics. Then in February the Wall Street Journal claimed to have a source who confirmed that Apple was testing the new, smaller screen line of tablets.

    Apple is expected to launch the iPad Mini at some point toward the end of 2012. When that happens, the last thing Apple should do is bring iOS 5 to the device. Apple will likely launch iOS 6 over the summer, making it a near-necessity for the company to bundle its latest software in the device. A recent report from Gartner said that Apple will maintain its tablet dominance for years. About 61.4 percent of tablet purchases this year will likely be for the Apple iPad, while Android tablets will probably make up 31.9 percent of tablet sales in 2012.

    Samsung Hosts a May 3 Event to Show off Its Next Galaxy Product
    In an invitation sent out to journalists and posted on Facebook, Samsung announced that it would be unveiling "the next Galaxy" on Thursday, May 3, at 7 p.m. in London. Samsung emailed, tweeted and blogged Monday about a May 3 event in which reporters are being invited to “come and meet the next Galaxy.”

    Samsung's Galaxy lineup includes Smartphone, tablets, and the larger form factor "phablet" known as the Galaxy Note. But with recent Galaxy Tab and Galaxy Note launches, it's the next Galaxy Smartphone for which most Samsung fans have been waiting. The Galaxy S III would be the successor to the Galaxy S II, which was never a single phone, but rather a line-up of devices with varying internal specs and exterior designs for different countries and carriers. Shoot, even the S II’s display sizes varied, with both 4.3-inch and 4.5-inch screens. That will see the mysterious device launched in a little over two weeks. No device is named, but it seems highly that this will concern the follow-up to the Galaxy S2, as having seen the company's crop of new gear at Mobile World Congress, Samsung's unlikely to have any more products to launch in the first half of this year.

    Though Samsung didn't provide any details, we suspect that the device to be unveiled will be called the Galaxy S III, and we've heard rumors of what this device might offer. The tech site Boy Genius Report was tipped off about the GS3's 1.5GHz quad-core processor, a 4.8-inch HD screen with 16:9 aspect ratio, 4G LTE, an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera and 2-megapixel front-facing camera, Android 4.0 "Ice Cream Sandwich," and, curiously, a ceramic case. Back in February, Samsung decided not to unveil the Galaxy S III at Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona, opting to instead show off the Galaxy Beam Smartphone plus projector, the Galaxy Note 10.1, and the Galaxy S WiFi 4.2. The company also raised eyebrows by admitting to "not doing very well" in the tablet space. By all accounts, the Galaxy Nexus is currently Samsung’s best Android phone, its single-carrier limitation notwithstanding. But what will happen when the Galaxy S III is released? This question, too, is complicated by the 5.3-inch Galaxy Note, which has been a surprise hit for Samsung. More than 5 million Galaxy Note units have shipped worldwide — and this is a phone that runs on the horribly antiquated Android 2.3.

    When the Galaxy S III is unveiled, the Smartphone will be worthy of flagship status for at least a few carriers, Rubin said: “The idea behind the Galaxy Nexus is to provide a pure Google Android experience,” he said. “The Galaxy Note, which has the largest screen size of any handset in a major U.S. carrier portfolio, is clearly about maximum screen real estate and the S-Pen for notes, annotation and drawing. Each device has its trade offs and Samsung is trying to have something out there for most anyone.”

    Apple CEO Tim Cook Visits Valve
    Tim Cook visited the headquarters of Valve, the video game firm behind the Steam digital distribution platform and a number of popular Pc and Mac games. No one knows his purpose; Hope Tim Cook is more serious about gaming on Mac than Jobs. Some one also said “I hope Cook urged Valve to make a real Cocoa-native Steam client rather than the half-assed hack we have now”. I think He should be. It's the single greatest market segment of the PC industry that Mac is largely missing out on. Behind price, playing games is the second biggest reason I hear from young people as to why they don't go Mac.

    Valve and Apple join forces to make a gaming console. Hardware and OS design by Apple, Online integration and ecosystem by Valve. Gabe Newell (director of Valve) on their upcoming gaming hardware: "We'd rather hardware people that are good at manufacturing and distributing hardware do. We think it's important enough that if that's what we end up having to do, then that's what we end up having to do."

    Earlier this year, Valve released a Steam companion app for iOS, allowing users to browse the Steam marketplace and even purchase games for later download and play on a PC or Mac.

    It is unclear just what Apple and Valve might come up with in terms of an expanded collaboration if one is in the works, including whether it would extend in some form to iOS or remain limited to gaming on the Mac platform. Valve has been rumored to be working on its own hardware offerings related to Steam services, and the company has just posted job openings related to hardware engineering for such projects.

    Maybe steam for apples TV so it can compete with things like the Xbox and play station.
    Well the problem is that the Apple TV is not powerful enough to run major games. It is only made to play videos and do simple user interactions and networking. Not to mention there would need to be some kind of controller other than an Apple remote. I don't think that this exact thing would be a possibility.
    This is interesting because the whole idea of having a "smart TV" seems to be headed to consoles. Apple would not have any momentum in this arena though, but a partnership with Valve could help put them on the map--and Valve seems to be equally interested in moving into the living room lately.

    Lots of speculation about this, but I think no matter what this will turn out to be something positive for gamers. I mean the main question here is why would Tim Cook himself have to personally visit Valve?? There are many projects and collaborations (including big ones) between Apple and Valve that would not necessitate Tim himself visiting. He could have sent many of his underlings (including high ranking underlings). But it is not. He went down there himself. So, WHY? Hopefully we'll find out sooner than later! If anything, I'd love to see Apple take gamers more seriously. Like many other posters have mentioned, improving gpu capabilities would be a huge improvement. And it wouldn't even be hard to do! But between that and Steam and iOS development and a million other things, I think there will be some positive benefits for us gamers...!

    Amazon Appstore Launching the New In-app Purchasing Service
    Amazon Appstore plans to launch the new in-app purchasing service to compete with Apple, Google and other competitors. This new feature allows developers to charge for digital products and subscription content, such as upgrades, expansion packs, in-game currency, and magazine issues. With the new service, users of the Kindle Fire and other Android devices will be able to purchase in-app content with just one click.

    Amazon said that Disney, Conde Nast, Gameloft, Dow Jones, and the New York Post will become the first batch of enterprises using this feature after a test of the past three months. “It has become the basic functions of the major application stores to allow in-app purchasing, which contribute to the Amazon competing with other companies in the market.” U.S. investment bank Robert W. Baird & Co. analyst Colin Sebastian said, "Without this feature, I think Amazon's application store will be at a disadvantage.” Simplify the application fee process is expected to mobilize the developer enthusiasm for the Amazon app store development software. 30% commission will be taken from the share of each application and this feature will bring additional revenue for Amazon. The application is part of the overall strategy of Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, he hopes to raise the needs of Kindle Fire and other equipments, while promoting the development of the digital content business.

    With the new capability, developers could be more inclined to write software for Amazon's Appstore, Bloomberg Businessweek pointed out. Amazon is the field of application store to catch up with the pace of development of the Apple and Google. The company currently has 34,000 applications, about 4000 in March last year when on-line models. Google and Apple's application is total to more than 450,000. It's also a win for Amazon because the online retailer keeps a 30 percent cut of every in-app purchase. According to the U.S. market research firm IHS estimates, the scale of application share market will reach $5.6 billion in 2015. Amazon are adding more features for the Kindle Fire, hoping to challenge the Apple iPad. The company's sale of equipment at a loss but it can make a profit through music, movies and applications. Royal Bank of Canada Capital Markets analyst Ross Sandler estimates that, thanks to movies and books download service, Amazon can earn $136 with each of the Kindle Fire. Google added in-app billing for Android apps in March 2011. In-app purchases have been available via Apple's App Store since October 2009 and via BlackBerry App World since September 2010.

    Amazon app store business director Aaron Rubenson, said this new feature will use Amazon's one-click shopping feature, needn’t to exit the application being used. You can purchase goods directly. "Many developers have said that the technology is essential to their business model." He said, "to such applications that really need this feature, it is an important step to help us attract new applications.”

    Microsoft Will End the Support for Windows XP after Two Years
    Microsoft is ending support for Windows Vista this week as part of an effort to push users to upgrade to Windows 7. Those of you still holding on to Windows XP have two years to spend with the now-antiquated OS before Microsoft pulls the support plug. All support for Windows XP and Office 2003 will end in two years. The company will no longer offer free technical support for customers running Vista, nor will they honor warranty claims for the five-year-old operating system, but it will provide basic support.

    Microsoft divides its support lifecycle into two stages: "Mainstream" and "Extended." In the Mainstream phase, software receives the full range of free security updates, stability improvements, bug fixes, and occasional new features. In the Extended phase, only security updates are freely available, though companies with paid support contracts can receive other fixes. Customers will continue to receive critical security updates, and will have the option of paying for support through April 11, 2017. After this point customers will be out of luck, and Microsoft will finally put Windows Vista out of its misery. Vista's gradual decline into obsolescence won't be an issue for most consumers, since most of the computers purchased with Vista installed are able to handle Windows 7. Vista's loss of support shouldn't come as a surprise--after all, Microsoft has been warning users about this day for over three years. Last April, Microsoft cut Vista users out of Internet Explorer 10, claiming that it needed to "take advantage of the ongoing improvements in modern operating systems and modern hardware".

    Windows XP and Office 2003 are currently in “Extended” support. Once this ends in 2014, they'll cease receiving even security updates, leaving anyone still using that software vulnerable to whatever malware the Internet throws at them. On April 8, 2014, Microsoft will officially end support for Windows XP and Office 2003, the software giant reminded business users in a blog post this week. "If you still have some PCs running Windows XP and Office 2003 in your organization, now would be a good time to start migrating them to Windows 7 and Office 2010," wrote Microsoft's Stella Chernyak. Chernyak warned against waiting for the next Windows and Office update. "Not only is it important for companies to complete deployment before support runs out, but they should also be aware that by upgrading to Windows 7 and Office 2010 today they can gain substantial results today while laying the foundation for future versions of these products," she wrote.

    The much-maligned followup to XP, Windows Vista, is currently in use by 7.65 percent of Windows fans, Net Applications said. Windows XP made its debut in 2001. According to March data from Net Applications, approximately 46.86 percent of global Windows users are still running XP, with 37.54 percent on Windows 7. That's up slightly from February, when 45.39 percent of users were running XP.

    Nokia Releases Lumia 900: Do You Like It?
    Nokia and Microsoft are making a big splash with the first major launch of a Nokia Windows Phone in the U.S. While Windows Phones until now have generally been capable if not outstanding devices, the Lumia 900 brings Microsoft's mobile platform to a new level. Nokia's Lumia 900 smartphones reached AT&T stores on Sunday for $99.99. One analyst said it could be the start of something big: Windows Phone as a market disrupter between the successful iPhone and Android phones.

    Windows Phone, Microsoft's mobile operating system that's used by Nokia in its Lumia line of smartphones, is so far a small portion of the smartphone market, less than 3%. Still, Forrester analyst Sarah Rotman Epps said in a blog Thursday the smartphone market is "ripe for disruption ... and every player in the ecosystem (other than Google and Apple) want a third player to wedge between Google and Apple.” The Lumia 900 is Nokia's flagship Windows Phone in the U.S. market. It's packed with high-end features including an 8-megapixel camera, vivid 4.3-inch screen, and 4G LTE support. But the most attractive thing about the Lumia 900 is the price. AT&T is selling the device, which has 16GB of storage, for $99 with a two-year contract. Meanwhile Apple's iPhone 4S, now six months old, would cost me $200 for the 16GB model. The price difference is only $100, but with Apple's extended AppleCare warranty, the difference is really $200. Given that my last iPhone didn't make it a full two years before it died, that's definitely something I should consider.

    Plenty of AT&T stores and Microsoft stores didn’t open in the release day. Worse, there wasn't a blanket "We're all closed on Easter Sunday" policy for either AT&T's or Microsoft's retail shops: If you're interested in grabbing a Lumia 900, you're going to have to put in some foot time and trudge over to all the various stores in your local area to see who's open — unless you want to just start cold-calling every store within a 50-mile radius, that is. "It's difficult to imagine that American shoppers will scout for an AT&T store that's open on Easter just to try a Lumia 900," writes the New York Times' Brian X. Chen. "And for companies, day one sales are important, because they can serve as a measure of the public's excitement about a product and determine how it will sell over all. It's no question that AT&T executives seem excited about the smartphone — "The Lumia has received tremendous product reviews and we have been taking pre-orders online and in our stores all week. We are already off to the races."

    The Nokia Lumia 900 has the weight of two technology behemoths and Windows Phone fans on its polycarbonate shoulders. Nokia and AT&T have said they will promote the Lumia 900 in AT&T stores with more floor space and promotional signs than other phones and by training sales reps to show it off.

    Some Redesigns Issue about iPhone 5
    It is said that a new research report summarizing some of the takeaways from a recent trip to Asia to talk with companies in Apple’s supply chain. According to the news, chatter from those suppliers is pointing toward a larger 4-inch screen on the iPhone 5, which will also include a redesign bringing a "new, sleek look".

    In our view, this will be the most significant iPhone upgrade with a four-inch screen and a new, sleek look that we believe will require a Unibody case. This new, sleek look will be the most important reason that consumers decide to upgrade to the iPhone 5, while we believe the addition of 4G will also attract buyers of the new device.

    White notes that some suppliers are expected to begin ramping production of components in June, ahead of a launch in the August-September timeframe leading into a blockbuster final quarter of 2012.

    As in any discussion of a larger screen on an iPhone, the issue of screen resolution is certain to be a key sticking point. With the iPhone currently offering a 3.5-inch Retina display, an increase to 4 inches would require one of two changes: an increase in resolution that would yield difficulties for developers by adding yet another device size to the mix, or a decrease in pixel density that would maintain the current resolution but see density drop to roughly 285 pixels per inch from the current 326 pixels per inch.

    Among White's other takeaways from his trip:

    - Display issues have caused a bit of a bottleneck on supplies of the new iPad, but the shortages seem to be easing. Any small constraints on March quarter sales numbers would be compensated for by a boost to June quarter sales.

    - Suppliers suggest that a smaller "iPad mini" is still in the works, but launch timing remains unknown.

    - While the new iPad is not yet officially available in China, some resellers are already carrying the device. Speculation is pointing to a potential May release for the new iPad in China, although evidence for that timeframe beyond a recent regulatory approval appears scant.

    Maybe some one will like the new design, maybe not, but it is moot point. Soon we will know the real face of iPhone 5, so we are looking forward for it.

    Now let’s listen to the saying from apple fans: “I think the aluminum back is a lot uglier than the glass. This looks like a step back. To anyone who thinks I was expressing anger in this post, I wasn't. I simply prefer the old design. It is big deal. This isn't an actual design anyway, so it's a moot point. I was merely expressing my opinion of the curved back design that we see here and we see on the iPhone 3G. I like a flat back. People read into things. They see what they want to see.”

According to the news, chatter from those suppliers is pointing toward a larger 4-inch screen on the iPhone 5, which will also include a redesign bringing a "new, sleek look".

    In our view, this will be the most significant iPhone upgrade with a four-inch screen and a new, sleek look that we believe will require a Unibody case. This new, sleek look will be the most important reason that consumers decide to upgrade to the iPhone 5, while we believe the addition of 4G will also attract buyers of the new device.

    White notes that some suppliers are expected to begin ramping production of components in June, ahead of a launch in the August-September timeframe leading into a blockbuster final quarter of 2012.

    As in any discussion of a larger screen on an iPhone, the issue of screen resolution is certain to be a key sticking point. With the iPhone currently offering a 3.5-inch Retina display, an increase to 4 inches would require one of two changes: an increase in resolution that would yield difficulties for developers by adding yet another device size to the mix, or a decrease in pixel density that would maintain the current resolution but see density drop to roughly 285 pixels per inch from the current 326 pixels per inch.

    Among White's other takeaways from his trip:

    - Display issues have caused a bit of a bottleneck on supplies of the new iPad, but the shortages seem to be easing. Any small constraints on March quarter sales numbers would be compensated for by a boost to June quarter sales.

    - Suppliers suggest that a smaller "iPad mini" is still in the works, but launch timing remains unknown.

    - While the new iPad is not yet officially available in China, some resellers are already carrying the device. Speculation is pointing to a potential May release for the new iPad in China, although evidence for that timeframe beyond a recent regulatory approval appears scant.

    Maybe some one will like the new design, maybe not, but it is moot point. Soon we will know the real face of iPhone 5, so we are looking forward for it.

    Now let’s listen to the saying from apple fans: “I think the aluminum back is a lot uglier than the glass. This looks like a step back. To anyone who thinks I was expressing anger in this post, I wasn't. I simply prefer the old design. It is big deal. This isn't an actual design anyway, so it's a moot point. I was merely expressing my opinion of the curved back design that we see here and we see on the iPhone 3G. I like a flat back. People read into things. They see what they want to see.”

    FTC Releases the Code - Standardize Data Collection Behavior
    The Federal Communications Commission released its final report on privacy on Monday, planning to regulate online advertising, user tracking industry and clean up the misconduct. The FTC's report applies to the browser developers, Internet service provider, online advertising, search engines, social networking and offline data collection enterprise. It encourages Web site developers to build in privacy protections, include simplified mechanisms like "Do Not Track" protections, and include greater transparency about the use of consumer data

    Companies that do pledge to obey the code, but then fail to uphold them, could then be investigated by the FTC for “unfair business practices,” much as the FTC has fined and penalized companies for violating their own privacy policies "If companies adopt our final recommendations for best practices – and many of them already have – they will be able to innovate and deliver creative new services that consumers can enjoy without sacrificing their privacy," said Jon Leibowitz, chairman of the FTC, in a statement. "We are confident that consumers will have an easy to use and effective Do Not Track option by the end of the year because companies are moving forward expeditiously to make it happen and because lawmakers will want to enact legislation if they don't.” Leibowitz said that the FTC will not initiate any independent rulemaking proceedings concerning privacy, save for the update to the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act that is already underway. That’s how the FTC imposed 20-year privacy audits on both Facebook and Google — using their own privacy policies against them.

    FTC hopes that the companies can comply with this criterion for the deployment of best practices to protect user privacy information. For example, in the default settings, privacy, and give users greater control over simplify the selection, increased transparency. The FTC report emphasizes what it calls “privacy by design,” alluding to the idea that privacy and data security should be built into any service, not an afterthought. The four principles called for in the report are data security, reasonable collection limits, sound retention practices, and data accuracy. While the report is new, the principles are based on 40 year princples known as Fair Information Practices. As a matter of practice, the FTC's ability to initiate legal action against a bad actor is significantly limited by its statutory mandate, and many of these companies may not be covered by areas in which the agency has explicit enforcement authority, such as its powers under the Fair Credit Reporting Act

    This Code of Conduct applies not only to Internet companies, including user data collected by line means business. The FTC also emphasized that companies can design products to consider privacy issues, rather than remedial. As it looks ahead, the FTC plans to continue its work with industry stakeholders in the hopes of advancing work on do-not-track and other privacy practices. The agency is planning to convene a privacy workshop May 30.

    Apple's iBookstore Where Will Going?
    Brazil is one of the major publishing markets of the world, not to mention an extremely vibrant economy in all senses; therefore, it would be great for Apple to score a major e-book push there against Amazon.

    Besides, books in Brazil suffer no taxation at all (a constitutional principle to maximize reading among the population); thereby leading to a fairly uniform price even when digital publications come from abroad.

    With the release of iBooks 2, Apple is proving that it wants to be the place for interactive books.
    Yet for now, when it comes to creating interactive kids books, publishers are often forced to create apps because many features won’t actually work in books sold in the iBookstore. Digital publishers Ellen Jacob and Kirk Cheyfitz have had to release books as apps to do the things they have wanted to do.Fast Company has the story: “If you want to sell your book in Apple’s iBookstore, you have to create it on Apple’s iAuthor platform, but then you are only allowed to have video and links in your book (unless those links lead to Amazon’s store, then fuggedaboutit). If you design it so readers can interact with it and have it do all the things that Jacob and Cheyfitz wanted Bats! And Horse Magic to do–both were created on gaming platforms; Bats! On Unity, Horse Magicon Corona–it goes into the app store.”

    Not only is this an issue of where a publisher might want to sell and market their books, but it is also an issue of cost. Apps are often cheaper than books, but can be more expensive to produce.
    Apple's iBookstore is coming to Brazil within the next 30 days, according to a Brazilian magazine. The iTunes Store and iTunes Match launched in Brazil late last year. Brazil has been specifically mentioned by CEO Tim Cook as an extremely important growth market for Apple.

    The launch of the iBookstore in Brazil may position Apple ahead of Amazon in the country.

    As the journalist Jardim points out, this news means that Apple could leapfrog Amazon on the e-bookstore front. While the retail company has been negotiating publishing rights with Brazilian publishers for the last few months, rumor has it that the discussions have stalled, and Amazon hasn’t yet confirmed when it will start beefing up its local catalogue.

    In addition to being a major growth market for Apple, Brazil is also one of the only countries outside China where Apple products are actually made. Earlier this year, the Brazilian government signed off on tax incentives that enable Foxconn and Apple to build iPhones and iPads in the country.

    Will Google Launch Online Store To Sell Android Tablet?
    Google is planning to open an online store to sell co-branded tablets running its Android mobile operating system. The online store would offer tablets made by Samsung Electronics Co and Asustek Computer Inc. The possibility of a Google-made Nexus tablet has been a major source of speculation over the past year. Google hopes the move will increase the adoption of its Android operating system in tablets. But selling tablets online could be challenging, since consumers often prefer to see the hardware in person before making a purchase.

    Google will sell the devices online through its own store and is considering the possibility of subsidizing the price in order to beat the Kindle Fire. Google's first tablet will reportedly be manufactured by Asus. It would be 7-inches and cost between $149 and $199, which directly targets the Kindle. The search giant had mixed results with a brief, earlier effort to sell its own Android smartphones, but the pressure is on to get the ball rolling for poorly selling Android tablets in a market dominated by Apple's iPad. Google first experimented with being a device retailer when the original Nexus One launched in 2010. The experiment ended badly for Google due to limited demand and the difficulty of handling customer support. Although Google has continued to produce its own Nexus devices, the company has transitioned to selling them through various retail partners, including mobile carriers and Best Buy. Nexus devices are no longer directly available to regular consumers through Google's website.

    Android has been a big success in smartphones, but Android tablets have yet to make much of a dent in Apple's huge iPad business. Perhaps the strongest competitors today are from Amazon, and those tablets are based on a fork of the Android OS, for which Google receives no payment. "Clearly, Google is in a difficult position," said Bob O'Donnell, an analyst at IDC. Google now relies on retail and carrier partners to sell Android smartphones, Android has become the world's No.1 smartphone operating system, ahead of iPhone-maker Apple Inc. But Apple still dominates the market for touch-screen tablet computers with its two-year old iPad. Amazon's Kindle Fire is based on open-source Android computer code, but the device features a customized interface that does not use many Google services. Succeeding in tablets is important for Google because it will make Android even more attractive to developers. "Their goal ultimately is to have the OS on as many devices as possible," O'Donnell said.

    Google started selling its own Android smartphone, the Nexus One, in 2010, but it closed the online store six months later because it wasn't successful. Amazon can afford to sell tablets at a lower cost than many of its rivals because the company is banking on content and application sales to make up the difference. Google has been working to build up its own content library and could be positioning itself to pursue the same approach. Google has recently taken steps to streamline its various content distribution channels into a more unified service.

    Windows 8 is coming
    Windows 8 will show to us in late May or early June, according to a post made by winunleaked.tk over the weekend. This would mesh with an earlier rumor that the software will be finished in the summer, with retail availability in October.
    All these dates are unsubstantiated rumor at this point, but they're not at all surprising. Microsoft has been clear that the development of Windows 8 is following the same track as Windows 7—initial preview about a year before release, public beta in the first quarter, release candidate mid-year, and a release in fall.
    The timelines aren't, however, identical. Windows 7's preview came in October 2008, with a beta shipped at CES in early January 2009, the release candidate in early May 2009, and the final build completed in late July 2009, with retail availability in October of the same year. Windows 8's preview was released in September 2011, but its beta didn't ship until late February of this year, making it a little slower to reach the same developmental stage as Windows 7. A June release candidate would similarly be a little behind the timetable laid down by Windows 7.
    While Windows 7 and Windows Vista both had three months between RTM and retail availability, there's likely scope to compress this slack time. Windows XP, for example, had only two months between its August RTM and October retail release. Windows 2000 similarly had two months between a December RTM and a February release. If Windows 8 RTMed in August, per Bloomberg's summer estimate, an October launch would be a bit tight, but well within reach.
    Usually the RC's actually are a bit cleaned up with the final user interface, close to final versions of IE and tweaks and refinements to the UI. Nothing, major.

    The differences between the Beta and RC of Windows 7 were quite large; however most of them were under the covers.
    It’s weird though, for Windows 8, the Tech Bata Groups for Connect have yet to get any notification of anything.
    Maybe I am wrong, but I predict a total flop, at least for the desktop market. Win8 makes sense to me as a tablet OS, in fact I'm looking forward to it. But the PC user experience so far (with the preview versions) has been a complete disaster in my opinion. I've shown it to several people, and they all agree that forcing this onto desktop PC and laptop users appears to be a colossal disaster in the making.
    Maybe some one will say Vista was a commercial success in that Microsoft sold tons of copies. Each Vista license allowed runs XP instead, which most businesses did. Even if people are slow to adopt Windows 8, Microsoft might do the same thing and sell Windows 8 licenses that allow run 7 instead. Whatever it will coming when it is at hand.

    Facebook Protect User Account from Business invasion
    Are you a Facebook user? Are you a worker? Weather your company demand you to be told your accounts and your passwords or not? If it had happened Facebook can protect you now.

    Facebook has spoken out against businesses that demand Facebook usernames and passwords from their employees and prospective hires.

    “In recent months, we’ve seen a distressing increase in reports of employers or others seeking to gain inappropriate access to people’s Facebook profiles or private information. This practice undermines the privacy expectations and the security of both the user and the user’s friends. It also potentially exposes the employer who seeks this access to unanticipated legal liability,” Facebook chief privacy officer Erin Egan writes in a Friday blog post.

    “If you are a Facebook user, you should never have to share your password, let anyone access your account, or do anything that might jeopardize the security of your account or violate the privacy of your friends.”

    Reports of such practices are widespread. In June 2009, the city of Bozeman, Montana made headlines when it was revealed that its job applications forms asked for usernames and passwords for the job seekers accounts on “social networking,” including everything from Facebook and Twitter to YouTube and Google. Earlier this year, the American Civil Liberties Union took aim at the Maryland Department of Corrections after it asked a Maryland man for his Facebook credentials during a recertification interview. And just this week, the Calgary Herald reported on a similar incident in Canada.

    A day before this report, US Senator Richard Blumenthal told Politico that such requests are an “unreasonable invasion of privacy” and that they should be prohibited in the business world, much like lie detector tests.
    In her blog post, Facebook’s Egan went on to say that Facebook would take action to protect the privacy and security of its users by engaging policymakers or “initiating legal action, including by shutting down applications that abuse their privileges.”

    Some took this to mean Facebook would consider legal action against employers who asked employees and prospective hires for login info. Asked to clarify this comment, the company spokesman told Wired: “While we do not have any immediate plans to take legal action against any specific employers, we look forward to engaging with policy makers and other stakeholders, to help better safeguard the privacy of our users.”
    As more of a general warning, Egan also argued that employers may take on an unexpected legal burden if an employee should actually turn over Facebook information. If the user’s information suggests they committed a crime, Egan said, the employer may have a legal responsibility to notify the police.

    So if you are a user of Facebook and you are asked to share your Facebook account or password, you can take up the weapon of law to protect your privacy.

    New iPad and Its Smart Cover Problems
    After the thing overheats then it won't charge properly and now it is nearly two weeks since the new iPad released, smart covers doesn't work., how unlucky iPad products are. And how unlucky the iPad users are!

    It appears that some iPad Smart Covers aren't working properly with the new iPad, including older Apple Smart Covers. The new iPad has a slight change in how its magnets work. Apple has reversed the polarity of one set of magnets related to the sleep/wake sensor that turns the iPad off when the Smart Cover is closed. As a result, older Smart Covers, that weren't designed with this change in mind, fail to turn the new iPad off when they're closed.

    Why some work and some don't: The original iPads didn't have a polarity sensing magnetic switch. So it didn't matter if the magnetic field was N-S or S-N. As a result it didn't matter what direction the magnet was built into the case.

    Now with the new sensors the magnet can only be oriented in one direction for the cover to work properly. In the older covers it was random which way the magnet was oriented - kind of like flipping a coin. Sometimes it will be N-S and the rest of the time it will be S-N.

    This also means that any new covers will also work with all iPads using the older sensor.

    I've learned why Apple decided to use a polarity sensitive switch in the new iPad 3. Some iPad 2 customers were having issues with their iPads entering sleep mode when they flipped Apple's Smart Cover around flat behind their iPad 2. Since the iPad 2's sleep/wake sensor wasn't polarity specific, it could sometimes be triggered from the magnet being positioned at the rear of the iPad. By changing to a sensor that requires the correct polarity, the problem is eliminated.
    Booth also notes that Apple is replacing older Apple Smart Covers at Apple Stores for customers who ask. New iPad owners having difficulties with third-party smart cover-compatible cases should contact their case-makers for possible resolutions.

    With regard to older genuine Apple Smart Covers that still work correctly with the new iPad... count yourself lucky. A lot of people on multiple forums are reporting that they weren't so lucky. It all depends whether those early Smart Covers were made with the one magnet in question facing the "right" way or the "wrong" way. It appears to be luck of the draw.

    As for any third-party cases that are sleeping the new iPad correctly but also sleeping it when the cover is flipped around to the back, please contact your case manufacturer. Something is going on with that case due to the size and/or position and/or strength of that magnet.

    I think if is 100% likely that Apple Smart Covers will be hit and miss until Apple notified the supplier that they had to 100% orienting the magnets in a certain way. The good thing here about Apple is you can bring the nonfunctional cover to a store and they will likely replace it (as reported by a number of customers).

    Intel Release Ultrabook to Fight against Apple iPad
    Intel haven’t tasted the sweet for it’s not the chip supplier of iPad in Apple feast, which facing with Apple's continued strong momentum, Intel has finally determined to release the Ultrabook to challenge the Apple iPad. “Intel has set up A Fund with $300 million and will carry out a large-scale advertising campaign in April this year.” Intel's worldwide senior vice president of Sales and Market Division, general manager, Tomas M. Kilroy said. “Generally speaking, there is a turning point every decade In PC field, Intel can promote the transformation of the computing experience through the turning point, and we will achieve the change through Ultrabook in 2012.” Moreover, the traditional PC giants HP, Lenovo, Acer, and Asus have joined this challenge.

    As we all know, since the advent of the Apple iPad quickly swept the world, the dwarfs of the traditional PC industry, Apple iPad didn’t adopt Intel chips, so Intel did not have tasted the sweet in the Apple feast. However, Intel has been highly valued the study of Apple iPad, Intel said that they will put “meet the needs of users” to the first, and then follow the trend and direction of this industry, it is clear that the direction of the Internet is more and more personalized in the past more than one years. To the standard of the Ultrabook, Intel said: "It is continue to improve, at first the sizes are required and now manufacturing processes, such as less than 18 mm can be considered Ultrabook. Another example is that the battery life is more than five hours and then move forward on the 12 hours or more, in the second half of this year is the AOAC.

    The first generation of Ultrabook is very thin while maintains the performance, the appearance is a breakthrough. With the introduction of more technology, the application will be richer. For example, Windows 8 is the traditional computer and touch integration, which is an iconic, but Windows 8 is not the only, Android also has a touch.” It is worth noting, Tomas M. Kilroy said that they had set up a $300 million fund for Ultrabook to support the entire ecosystem around the development of Ultrabook." Through this fund we will support smaller, specialized companies, these companies can not be considered the OEM, and ODM are not really. But they focus on the production can be assembled to Ultrabook of this component or components which, we hope accelerate their development work, and accelerate their product launch to the market rate so that we can promote the Ultrabook of the cost of materials which achieve higher efficiency and lower costs.”

    Tomas M. Kilroy alleges that Intel will carry out a large-scale advertising campaign in the media from the beginning of April this year. Apple launched its new generation iPad in San Francisco, Apple CEO Tim Cook at the press conference emphasized: "The PC is no longer the center of the digital world." As the PC industry "actual control" - Intel apparently does not agree this word, which obviously that Intel put prodigious faith in Ultrabook, and seems to the bargaining chip to fight against Apple.

    Facebook's Executives Begin to Invest Political Software
    NationBuilder, the American political movement software company, has got a number of Facebook's Executives small-scale investment, which indicated that they will continue to increase the investment to the high-tech industries in Silicon Valley. NationBuilder on Thursday said that they has obtained the first round of the $6,250 thousand investment from the company which co-founded by Marc Andreessen and Ben Horowitz.

    The company also received a capital injection of a series of small-scale, one of the participants, including former Facebook president Sean Parker, Facebook co-founder Dustin Moskovitz and Facebook former senior director of marketing Dave Morin. Now widely expect a repeat of the early 21st century PayPal Mafia, the scene of large-scale promotion of the Internet revolution. After the 2002 PayPal eBay acquisition, a large number of employees left the company to re-entrepreneurs in Silicon Valley to start their own business, which generated professional networking site LinkedIn, shop review site Yelp and YouTube and other emerging high-tech enterprises. Facebook has more than 845 million users, and is prefer for raising $5 billion during IPO, and market value may exceed $100 billion. Facebook threw its hat into the ring of curated newsfeeds on Thursday, offering a new "Interest Lists" feature that will allow Facebook users to subscribe to interesting, topical content. For example, users who want to keep up with the 2012 presidential candidates can subscribe to a list of updates from the candidates themselves, and the political news outlets that follow them.

    The origins of NationBuilder and Facebook can be traced back to the period of university of the company's co-founder Joe Green; Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is a roommate with him. Also Green and Parker have created a social change venture Website Causes. NationBuilder, the company's background has been proud of Green this venture companies to become "investment" by the Silicon Valley heavyweights involved in the political sphere. Green said in an interview: "This is not a self-touted...ever set foot in this area because none of the companies with our background.” At the same time, NationBuilder also tried to win more political influence through political channels for the Silicon Valley. High-tech industry has become one of the important sources of funding to support the re-election of U.S. President Barack Obama. A proof of the most vivid than Zuckerberg last year to participate in a private fund- raising dinner, sitting in a group photo of the Obama side.

    In Addition, NationBuilder played an important role in the last fall in San Francisco mayoral elections, which helped the San Francisco Chinese American mayor Edwin Lee from a number of candidates come to the fore. Horowitz pointed out that politics and science & technology are almost not interfere with each other, but now the boundaries between the two has begun to blur. He said the software will significant implications in politics. Horowitz has previously invested more than 90 companies in Groupon, Skype, Zynga, Foursquare, and Facebook through his venture fund.
