Nokia Lumia 820, AKA Nokia Arrow, photos leaked

Nokia Lumia 820 (Arrow)

It seems like just as you buy your new smartphone, you hear that an even better one is just being released soon. This might be the case here today, as photos of the Nokia Arrow (Nokia Lumia 820) are released from a Chinese website. However, one of the funny things about these images are that, on the bottom right corner it claims the phone only has 335 MB of RAM. This is probably due to it being a prototype, we hope. One thing we do know though, is that it will most likely be running Windows 8 (shock).

Sony 84-inch 4K Bravia KD-84X9005 is debuted, better then 3D and HD put together

 

Sony 84-inch 4K Bravia KD-84X9005

Television technology has been changing since its invention. However, within the last decade the technology used on our TVs have changed so rapidly, that we’ve moved from analog, to digital, to HD, to Full HD, to 3D, and now finally to 4K TVs. Keeping that in mind, Sony has just released a 84-inch 4K Bravia KD-84X9005, but the only problem is that we’re missing a lot of content. So other than the London 2012 Olympics your going to find it hard searching for 4K content, because 4K content needs to be filmed with a 4K camera, of course. However, if you wait a couple of years, this whole playground will be changed upside down.

Amazon Kindle Touch goes out of stock, could this behind a new Kindle line-up release?

Kindle Touch Out of Stock

Amazon has been slashing down prices, and announcing a press conference for Sept. 6th, suspiciously. And to add to that, Amazon has also just decided to put the Kindle Touches availability as out of stock, today. Therefore, I could almost bet my house  that Amazon is releasing a whole new Kindle line-up to rival up with the new Google Nexus and to-be-released Microsoft Surface tablets. However, I wouldn’t be too surprise if more Kindle get out of stock, or prices go down.

iPad Mini next to iPhone

Apple has always tried to become the first at everything. This time, it’s different as Apple has decided to copy the whole Amazon and Google’s 7inch tablet idea. With that in mind, the iPad mini will be released sometime in October after an iPhone debut (rumored at Sept.12).  Apple’s reason for separating the release dates are unknown. Probably their idea of how to increase profit margins for the new iPhone and iPad. What do you think?

If you shout brand names at your TV, Sony will let you skip the commercials

Sony TV Pantent

Interactive advertising has always been an important goal for major brands. As the better you advertise the more sales that will increase. It goes almost by the same rules like supply and demand. Invest in better advertising and get more money. For that purpose, Sony has filed a patent for an idea that by shouting at the TV you will be able to skip commercials. This is a very unique idea for the interactive marketing world, as you are forced to insert a brand name into your unconscious mind. So in their view, the next time you head out to the store, you’ll be buying the product you were swearing at.

DARPA is creating an unmanned sub hunting vessel

ACTUV

Submarines have evolved over the years in so many ways, that’s impossible to note them all. With these advances, submarines have been coming widely available to some second and third world countries. As not all countries are America’s friends, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), has decided to invent a submarine tracker. This tracker is called an Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) Continuous Trail Unmanned Vessel (ACTUV). In other words, no human intervention is required for the ACTUV to locate and trial submarines. The project will hopefully be completed by 2015, which would free the US Navy’s resources.
