Technoid - iPhone Keyboard via SMH Digital LifeAs the song says – well kind ofSome guys have all the fun! Ben Grubb is such a man, the Digital Life wunderkind gets bundles of superneat new gadgets thrown at him, from the big guys and the not-so-big guys.

This week he’s been tossed a neat little gadget for that device we refuse to cover – the iPhone – from one of the littler guys. A prototype app made for the iPhone 4 allows users to type on a keyboard made of paper using vibrations.

Created by Florian Kräutli, a university student in London, the “Vibrative” app makes use of the iPhone’s inbuilt accelerometer, reading vibrations as a finger taps a surface to work out which key is being pressed.

According to the Daily Mail, the software works out the approximate location of a strike on a paper keyboard by analysing the strength and frequency of tremors through the surface the iPhone is resting on :: Read Ben Grubb’s full article at Digital Life »»»»

Android Apps Leaking Bank Details SMH Digital Life

Tens of millions of people around the world are using vulnerable Android apps that are leaking personal data, including bank account information and webcam access, according to new research. The study tested the 13,500 most popular free apps from the Google Play Store and found that 1074 – almost 10 per cent – used incorrect or inadequate coding. Researchers at the Leibniz University of Hannover and the Philipps University of Marburg, both in Germany, tried to hack a sample of 100 of the vulnerable apps. They were able to exploit almost half the apps, of which there are at least 39.5 million users worldwide, according to the Google Play Store :: Read the full article at Digital Life »»»»

 


Gizmag Reblog! The Anternet

Posted: September 3rd, 2012 | Author: | Filed under: BLOGGING!, REBLOG | Tags: | Comments Off on Gizmag Reblog! The Anternet

Gizmag Reblog - The AnternetAsk who invented the Internet and you’ll spark off an argument with everyone championed from DARPA to Nikola Tesla. However, two Stanford scientists claim that the inventor may have had six legs, antennae and a taste for disrupting picnics.

Professor of biology Deborah Gordon and professor of computer science Balaji Prabhakar say that red harvester ants – Pogonomyrmex barbatus – use the same Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) in foraging that the internet uses to manage data transmissions – making a sort of “Anternet.”

A common image of an ant colony is that it’s the ultimate dictatorship, with each ant condemned to a life of total regimentation. It’s nice metaphor, but it’s actually false. In fact, in an ant colony, no one is in charge.

True, there’s a queen, but she doesn’t do anything except lay eggs. As to the rest of the ants, no one makes decisions, no one tells anyone else what to do and no one supervises the work. This raises the question, how does anyone know what to do? :: Read the full article »»»»


Overclockers So Smitten With Ivy Bridge

Posted: June 10th, 2012 | Author: | Filed under: Intel, Technoid Computer News | Tags: , , , , , , , , | Comments Off on Overclockers So Smitten With Ivy Bridge

Overclockers So Smitten With Ivy BridgeFast, Faster, Fastest! Overclockers are an odd breed to say the least, taking a perfectly adequate processor, dragging it kicking and screaming to it’s physical limits, often with dire consequence. Overclockers apparently live to push the bounderies that hardware makers set as benchmarks. At a very basic level overclocking is about squeezing that last tiny bit of juice out of what was a  bog standard processor.

At an extreme level, overclocking can mean using liquid nitrogen to obtain speeds that perform set tasks in world record times and doing this has become a globally-competitive ‘sport’. Through establishing which components most-easily break in their quest to push performance boundaries, overclockers have helped make consumer level computers become faster and more stable.

It seems from all the ranting that overclockers are once again in lust with Intel – Intel’s new Platform, Ivy Bridge seems to have them all gaga – Dino Strklevic, an overclocker and abc.net.au contributor says “What an amazing new platform! Intel has finally given overclockers the jackpot! The new king is in town and geeks call it Ivy Bridge – Intel calls it  3rd gen Core processors –  it formally launched in Australia last week :: Read the full article »»»»
