Remember the old days, when you used to have to click on a picture in Twitter to see it? No longer. As of Tuesday, Twitter is making your photos and videos show up in your stream by default — making the service look a lot more like Facebook. No related posts.
An ingenious prototype pen developed by a German start-up is promising to give our longhand writing a similar sort of safety net. Lernstift (German for “learning pen”) is a digital pen with a difference, carrying not only ink inside its casing but also a tiny computer that alerts users to spelling errors. The AAA battery-powered Linux computer includes a vibration module and a patent pending non-optical motion sensor which recognizes specific movements and shapes of letters and words. The pen employs a menagerie of sensors, including a gyroscope (for measuring orientation), accelerometer (for calculating propulsion) and magnetometer (a device that measures the strength and direction of magnetic fields) — all to calculate the pen’s 3-D movements. Lernstift recognizes all writing movements,
BlackBerry announced Monday it agreed to a $4.7 billion buyout by a consortium of investors who plan to take the struggling Canadian smartphone maker private. The company said in a statement in Ottawa that it has “signed a letter of intent agreement under which a consortium to be led by Fairfax Financial Holdings Limited has offered to acquire the company subject to due diligence.” Fairfax, a Canadian firm, is already BlackBerry’s largest shareholder with approximately 10 percent of its shares. Under the proposed deal the consortium would offer $9 for each outstanding share, and Fairfax would contribute its own shares in the transaction. BlackBerry said its board of directors said support the plan. A firm deal, once due diligence is completed, is expected to be announced by November 4.

Purchasing a new phone in the year 2013 is becoming more complicated every day, considering that OS has so much to offer in terms of design and features. Eventually, I found what brand of phone that I need. Nevertheless, i still need to decide one more thing. Should I purchase the Blackberry Q10 or the iPhone 5? However I love all class of devices, I was never able to purchase a smartphone. Right now I am using a Nokia torchlight phone. So, as you can see, I really don’t have solid experience with using a smartphone. This will be my first time and I wish this all to go smoothly for me. I’ve gotten a lot of Konga newsletters advert on different phones that are available, but they have not been helpful. But then again, this is probably my fault because I just seem not able to choose the

Posted Via Techloy About a month ago, Seun Osewa, founder of Nairaland said in a Facebook update that, “if you’re a programmer who loves to be pampered, you should start updating your CV because something is happening in Sango Ota!” My first thought was that Osewa was about to set up a tech hub or developer’s space in that city for programmers to work out of just like several hubs being created in Lagos and elsewhere, and so I asked him to fill me in with any information regarding such, although he’s not responded yet. Today, Techloy learnt that Osewa is finally setting up a — long overdue — large office space in Ota, Ogun State, after managing the largest online forum in Africa for eight years with over one million registered users, attracting zero external funding, and raking
This appeared on Evans Akanno’s blog here: http://bit.ly/Evansakanno Brand identity is like sign language. I mean how would you know what to do if you cannot identify a sign, right? So basically people will spend time teaching signs to themselves until they’ve become used to it and respond almost unconsciously when they arise. Logically speaking, you would spend more time teaching complex signs to people than very simple signs that could serve the same purpose. And if it were a game, the guys with simpler signs will have even more people identifying to with them and what they stand for than the guys with complex signs. In brand identity, it’s a lot more complicated. As a business, your primary goal is to overwhelm your target audience with your type of product or service in order
