Panasonic appliances will be controlled by your phone

Panasonic Appliances App

Since the age of TV remote controllers, remote controlling has been reinvented again and again. Panasonic thinks that you need to control your Panasonic appliances (refrigerators, TVs, speakers, etc…)  via an app on your smartphone instead of using a basic remote controller. They do have a point about convince, however, what are you going to do if a virus hits your appliances? Will they ruin your milk and meat? Or just cause your new Panasonic refrigerator to overheat and blowup? Make sure to tell us if that happens, because it would make a great story…

Apple divorces Google, YouTube becomes a foe

Apple has decided to ditch Google one more time. After removing Google’s maps feature on the new IOS6, Apple has decided to remove YouTube on the pre-installed app list too. This means that Apple has only one more thing to cross off before it officially divorces Google. Search engine. That means that it’s possible that Apple is working on a secret search engine. However, you shouldn’t worry if your a Google die-hard fan, as all those apps will now appear on the App Store, including the new Chrome browser.

Apple has decided to reinvent its whole new line with a new dock connector

Time and time again, Apple decides to reinvent. What is Apple reinventing now, you ask? Will the latest rumors claim that they will be changing from a 30 pin dock connector to something smaller. This is big news, as this will mean that Apple will have to update all of its mobile products (IPhone, IPad, IPod) and cause a huge headache for a lot of accessory manufacturers. Furthermore, some people are speculating that this dock connector will be a mini USB as the majority of mobile products out there use it (Android in particular). Whether this rumor is true or not, we will all be anticipating for Apple’s new lineup which should debut sometime in early September.

Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 16GB pre-orders now and ships tomorrow from Negri Electronics

What a unique tablet to find on Negri Electronics. You can now have it but for a pretty expensive price tag. $750. Worth it? Possibly. Just remember it doesn’t come with the latest Android. So Android 4.0 will have to suit you. But it does come with some pretty decent specs, including 3G, two cameras (5MP and 1.9MP) and the back one comes with HD video. You can also rely on its 1.4Ghz Quad Core Exynos 4412 (the same as in the Galaxy S III). If that’s still not good enough, it ships tomorrow.
