Google Chromecast, Already a Hit!!!

chromecastGoogle Chromecast

Google unveiled Chromecast , a device that looks  set to rival Apple TV.

Google announced their new Chromecast device, a very small stick thing that plugs into your TV and allows you to play videos or music on your TV. It costs $35, and if you’re a Netflix subscriber you will get credited 3 months free,  bringing the price essentially down to $11.00 so people are very excited about it.

Google Chromecast, essentially bit more than an HDMI dongle, is Google’s first foray into the media streaming market,  and it works in some  way to Apple TV and the firm’s Airplay technology.

Google showed off the Chromecast dongle, which measures little more than 2 inches,  at an event in San Francisco .  They explained, With Google Chromecast, all you have to really do is plug it into any HDMI input on your Television, sync  to your home WiFi network, and you’re ready to go .  It simply disappears behind your TV.

Once Chromecast is plugged in, if you want to watch Youtube on your TV, you simply go to the same Youtube app on your laptop or tablet and press the Chromecast button to play it on your TV.

Google boasts that unlike Apple TV and Apple’s Airplay technology, Chromecast works in multiple operating systems, such as, Windows iOS, and Mac OS X . This was demonstrated using  Netflix on an iPhone, an app that supports the chromecast” button to fire the footage onto the TV.

Also unlike Apple’s Airplay technology, users can continue to use their tablets and phones  for browsing the web and sending emails while streaming to their TVs.

As well as enabling users to stream House of Cards from their phone to their TV, Chromecast also supports music playback and tabs within the Chrome browser, so you can share an open webpage with your television.

Google Chromecast is available in the US for just $35.

Ten Best Gadgets For 2012

         Ten Best Gadgets For 2012

iPad 3
It’s all eyes on Apple’s latest tablet, which could be announced as soon as next month. A high-resolution 2048×1536-pixel display, 4G connectivity, an A6 processor, USB 3.0 and NFC technology (short-range radio used for contactless payment) are all rumored and it may even be 3D. What we eventually get will be a good indication of what is to come with the iPhone 5.

iPhone 5
Apple could unveil the new quad-core iPhone in June but we expect to see it on shelves by the autumn. If you felt short-changed by the 4S, this promises to be an all-new design, albeit of similar proportions (reports suggest a 5in screen has been canned).

Google tablet
Company president Eric Schmidt has hinted Google will launch its own branded tablet to rival the iPad within the next six months. Speaking to Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera, he revealed that Google would be ‘marketing a tablet of the highest quality’ and to expect a ‘brutal competition between Apple and Google Android’.

Apple HDTV
Not to be confused with Apple TV, its miniature set-top box, the Californian company has decided to make its own television sets as well – albeit with screens supplied by Sharp. No idea on price yet or whether a 3D option will be available, but expect an iOS operating system. Production is to begin in the spring with a mid-2012 unveiling.
Wii U
Nintendo’s next-generation home console boasts controllers with an inbuilt 6.2in touchscreen that works with your main display – or can be used as a portable gaming device. We finally get 1080p HD content and internal flash memory upgradable through USB or SD. No official release date, but 2012 looks promising.

PSP Vita
Sony’s shiny new portable games console launches here on February 22, priced from £229, and boasts impressive features such as an A9 quad-core processor and 5-inch 960×544 OLED touchscreen display. However, Sony faces stiff competition from iOS and Android gaming devices.

Google TV
Landing here in early 2012, Google’s smart TV platform can be controlled via Android mobile phones, browses the web using their popular Chrome browser, runs Android apps and includes HD web video recordings. Despite a lukewarm reception in the US, Schmidt claims that most new TV sets will carry the platform by summer 2012.

Samsung Galaxy SIII
The SII was many people’s phone of the year, so Samsung has its work cut out to meet expectation with its successor -– but the rumors sound good: a quad-core handset with up to five times the graphics quality and a 12-megapixel camera. Look out for announcements in early 2012.

Amazon Kindle Fire
An Android tablet with Amazon Kindle pedigree for £125? It sounds like the gadget bargain of the decade and the Fire is certainly hot. The 7in device doesn’t have all the bells and whistles of the iPad but then it never promised that. What it does possess it uses to its full potential. Now we just need a UK release date.

Intel Ultrabooks
Ultra light, super-slim and lightning-quick PC laptops to rival the MacBook Air have arrived. We’ve already had the gorgeous Asus Zenbook, now expect other big players such as Sony, Samsung, Dell and Acer to follow suit shortly.

The 20 most useful Android smartphone apps of 2011

The 20 most useful Android smartphone apps of 2011

1. Google Voice

Google Voice is a service that is so useful I consider it one of the top benefits of Android itself. The service gives you a phone number that can ring to multiple places or devices and it allows you to access all of your voicemail and text messages from the Web. The Android app integrates even deeper. It can make outgoing calls look like they’re coming from your Google Voice number so that you can keep your real mobile number private.

2. Advanced Task Killer

One of the realities of having a multitasking mobile OS is that you have to manage your apps so that they don’t hurt performance or battery life. Advanced Task Killer (ATK) is my favorite on Android. It even comes with a widget that you can tap once to kill all open apps and you can also set up ATK to kill all apps at periodic intervals. Some people will argue that task managers are irrelevant and unneeded in Android, but I still prefer to use ATK.

3. Dropbox

Dropbox is a great cloud service that automatically syncs a folder of files between multiple computers (Windows, Mac, or Linux). This app extends Dropbox to Android and interacts with other apps (such as Documents To Go) to open the files. It allows you to access PDFs, image files, and business documents by simply dragging them to a folder on your computer and then you immediately have access to them from your mobile phone, once you have this app installed.

4. Evernote

Once you get used to typing on a virtual keyboard (and it honestly took me over a year to do it), then these devices are great for note-taking, and Evernote is a great note-taking app. It is similar to Dropbox in that it saves data locally but syncs it across all your machines and devices.

5. Taskos

There are plenty of to-do apps to choose from on Android but I now prefer Taskos because of the clean, easy, Android-friendly user experience. It also has a few extras that give it an advantage over apps. The biggest one is voice recognition, which lets you speak a task that the app turns into a to-do item (you might have to correct a word or two).

6. DroidAnalytics

For some reason Google doesn’t have an official app for Google Analytics (for either Android or iPhone). The best one I’ve found on Android is DroidAnalytics. Another good one is mAnalytics.

7. Documents To Go

The free version of Documents To Go offers a great little reader for Microsof Word and Excel files. You can upgrade to the full version (for $15) if you want to be able to create and edit files and add PowerPoint files to the mix. If you do want editing capability, I’d also recommend taking a look at QuickOffice.

8. Google Docs

If you mostly work with Google Docs (including uploading Microsoft Office files to your Google Docs repository) then the only app you’ll really need is the Google Docs app. It’s a nice mobile implementation of document management, although the one annoyance is that always open up files in a web browser rather than within the app itself, which would be a little smoother.

9. Tripit

I dig Tripit. It is by far the best app I’ve found for keeping track of all my travel itineraries. It runs on some great backend systems. You simply forward your confirmation emails for your flights, hotels, rental cars, and more to Tripit and it automatically organizes them into trips with all your details and confirmation numbers. Or, if you use Gmail, you can even use a plugin to automatically catch confirmation emails and turn them into Tripit trips.

10. Google Places

This is an awesome app for finding shops and services near your current location. From restaurants to medical facilities to taxis, this app is very accurate and takes advantage of the business information from Google Local. This app is better than the info you get from a GPS unit (or app) and better than any of the similar apps available on the iPhone. It’s also integrated into Google Maps.

11. Astro File Manager

Another one of the great things about Android (if you’re a geek or a tinkerer) is that you have lower-level access to the system itself. Astro is an app that lets you navigate the Android file system, which is mostly just interesting, but can be handy once in a while.

12. Speed Test

I’m obsessed with running speed tests to check my bandwidth in various places, both to see 3G/4G fluctuations and to check the quality of Wi-Fi. There are a number of really good speed test apps, but my favorite is the Speedtest.net app. It’s generally consistent and it has some of the best graphics and options.

13. Amazon Kindle

I’ve never completely warmed up to the Amazon Kindle e-reader, but I’m a big fan of the Kindle mobile app. Since it was released I’ve read a lot more books simply because my smartphone is always with me and I can pull it out and read a few pages anytime I’ve got a couple minutes free.

14. Google+

I’ve written a lot about Google+ since it launched in July and I’m pretty active over there (+Jason Hiner). One of the great things that Google did was to release a Google+ Android app at the same time it launched the service as a beta. And, surprisingly, the app was actually pretty good and has been improved since. It immediately became one of my most used mobile apps and definitely stole some of my time away from Android’s Twitter app, mostly because Google+ is a little more interactive.

15. TED Air

The TED conference features a meeting of the minds of some of society’s most influential thinkers. You’ll disagree with some of them since there’s a large diversity of viewpoints, but many talks are worth listening to in order to catch the latest creative thinking on society’s biggest challenges. The cool thing is that they’ve taken the videos from the conference and made them freely available on the Web. The TED Air app provides a great way to access the videos on a mobile device. I hope more conferences follow TED’s lead on this.

16. Google Goggles

This is a fun app that is a little bit ahead of its time. It does visual searches. You can take pictures of things and then the app tries to tell you what they are. It’s limited in its scope but it is pretty cool, and it’s definitely a peek into the future. One of the coolest features is the ability to take pictures of text in a foreign language and let the app translate it for you. In a foreign country, this can help you read street signs and avoid going into the wrong bathroom. 🙂 On a more practical level, Goggles is a QR code reader and you can also use it to scan bar codes on products to look them up online.

17. Photoshop Express

Photoshop is, of course, the best known photo editor in the world and its mobile app doesn’t do anything to hurt that reputation. But while the desktop version is known for having a zillion features, the mobile app is distinguished by its simplicity. It’s the best Android (and iPhone) photo editing app for simple crops, brightness adjustments, and sharpens, for example.

18. Audible

As much as I like the Kindle ebooks, I actually consume more books as audiobooks via Audible. With the Audible app you can connect to your Audible library and download over the air. The app also gives you a self-contained player optimized for audiobooks, with a skip-back-30-seconds button and the opportunity to make notes and bookmarks (although I wish the app would store these online so that they could be accessed from the Audible site).

19. Shazam

If you want to impress your friends with a mobile app, show them Shazam. Ever hear a song being played at a store or on the radio and ask yourself, “Oh, what song is that?” That’s where Shazam comes in. Just hit the button and let it listen for 15 seconds, query its database, and then return the name of artist and the song. It has about an 80% success rate. This one isn’t particularly productive, but it is really cool. (You have to live a little, every once in a while.)

20. Google Finance

This is a great little app that regularly gets overlooked. It connects to your Google Finance account, where you can set up a list of stocks and companies to follow and sort them into groups (portfolios). The app provides three simple tabs — a look at the market, a look at your portfolios, and the latest market news. It even does real-time updates when you have the app open.
