Asus Google Nexus 7(2013)

Just before few days the new Google Nexus 7 Tablet was launched by Google and Asus.This is a successor to the old Nexus 7 Launched by Google last year.
Nexus 7 is a best competitor for the Ipad Mini but with a lower price.Google has made Some Interesting Improvements to this years Nexus 7.
Specifications of New Nexus 7-
  • 7 inch ips LCD Display with 1920/1200 pixel Resolution.(332PPI)
  • 5 Megapixel Rear camera without Flash and 1.2 MP front Camera.
  • CPU-1.5 GHz Quadcore Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro Processor.
  • GPU-Qualcomm Adreno 320 with 400MHz.
  • Ram-2GB
  • Latest Android 4.3 out of the Box
  • Stereo Speakers on Top and Bottom
  • 3950 MAPh Battery
  • Corning Gorilla Glass.
Seeing from the Specs above,Its clear that google had made huge improvements in the Display making this Tablet to be the Highest Resolution Display in a 7 inch Tablet.There is also improvement in the CPU from the Tegra 3 to Qualcomm snapdragon s4 pro.Ram has also improved from 1 to 2 Gb as expected.There few interesting things here in the New Nexus 7,

1.There are Stereo Speakers which Help in sound quality for Using this tablet as an Entertaining device.
2.Addition of a 5MP camera makes it clear that Google had been targeting for the Rivalry of Ipad Mini which also had an 5 Mp camera.
3.There is also an LED notification Light at the Bottom which looks good.
4.This new Nexus 7 has a Narrow Design than the previous one,So this makes it comfortable to hold the device.

Price
Its very good that Google has again made the Nexus 7 one of the Cheapest Tablets.The Price Starts at
16Gb-229$(Rs.20999)
32Gb-269$(Rs.23999)
32GB&LTE-350$(Rs.27999)
So there is only a 30$ increase for the basic 16GB model which Cant be bargained considering the Specs you get in the Device.
Asus has also planned to release a 4G LTE Model with 32Gb storage in coming September.

Wish A Dream Username On Yahoo Before 7th August And Grab One

Wonder each time you created an email address that you need a particular username but it’s already taken? Then you might get lucky with Yahoo’s new strategy to get users back on their website. Yahoo is well aware of the number of users who left a few years back and haven’t logged into their Yahoo accounts for quite a while. But the company sees that as an opportunity to get new users on-board. Yahoo is offering up those dormant e-mail addresses and starting today new or current Yahoo users can create a wish list of their most desired usernames or email addresses. Users can go to Yahoo’s new wish list site at https://wishlist.yahoo.com to request the username of their dreams — or, you know, a first name or first, last name combination.

Last month the company informed users whose accounts were dormant for over a year that they would begin a process which would give away their addresses. That part is over now – Yahoo says and it’s now time to free up those unused addresses for others to use.
The username wish list project is just one of many changes that Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer has made since she took over a year ago this week. Mayer has made a series of acquisitions and refreshes to products, including Yahoo’s weather app and Flickr photo-sharing service.
It sounds like a fun way to get a new user name, but there are some concerns, notably around privacy and for those who had these e-mail addresses before and used them to log in to social media and e-commerce sites. Yahoo says it is working with sites like Facebook to get around these issues and has begun to detail the process on its developer site. It plans to detail more in the coming weeks.

Just Before a couple of days back Samsung finally launched the S4,the next smart phone in the Galaxy S series.The previous year the Samsung Galaxy S3 was a hugh success to the company,will S4 be a success?!,Lets see from the Specifications below,



Specifications:

External Specs-

  • 5 Inches Super AMOLED Screen.
  • Full HD Resolution of 1080x1920 Pixels(441 PPI).
  • Corning Gorilla Glass 3.
  • WIFI,Bluetooth 4.0,NFC.
  • 13 Megapixels Rear Camera with LED Flash and Full HD 1080P Video Recording.
  • 2 Megapixel Front facing camera with 1080p Video recording.

Internal Specs-

  • 1.6GHz Exynos 5 Octa-core CPU with PowerVR SGX 544MP3 GPU Chipset.
(OR)
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 600-Quad-core 1.9 GHz Krait 300 CPU with Adreno 320 GPU Chipset.

Samsung has Improved the Camera to 13MP as of its nearest competitor Sony Xperia Z which has released now.But Samsung has improved its Camera features than that of Sony Xperia Z.It has Dual Shot, Simultaneous HD video and image recording,face and smile detection, image stabilization, HDR Video.

Will these Gestures help?I don't feel so.These can be done using the touch.It can be useful to some people.
The Design is the main reason of disadvantage.There is no difference with the Galaxy S3 except the Wider Screen.If Samsung would have made a new design then this device would have appealed many people.
