Skype International

Many of us have used and are currently using Skype to contact our friends and family, it has been very useful. Now Skype has let people use the Beta of Skype Translate without having to sign up for it. This only works for text chat, but is still pretty awesome for those of us that chat with international clients on a regular basis.

Today, we’re excited to announce that we’re making it easier to obtain the Skype Translator preview by removing the sign-up requirement. Simply download the Skype Translator preview application from the Windows Store for your Windows 8.1 or Windows 10 preview PC or tablet – no waiting or sign-up needed – use it as soon as you download it!

Blu-Ray Now Does 4K

For a while now online video streaming and posting services have released video in 4K. Thus far there are no 4K disk format media, but the Blu-Ray Disk Association is changing that . They are bringing out the Ultra HD Blu-Ray. This is about time! Not everyone has the bandwidth for streaming 4K content and with the big push behind 4K TVs, content was lacking. I expect 4K TV sales to increase once these disks start hitting the market.

For years, Blu-ray Disc™ has set the standard for high definition picture and audio quality in the home. Ultra HD Blu-ray will do the same for UHD home entertainment," said Victor Matsuda, chair, BDA Promotions Committee. “The technical capabilities of Blu-ray Disc, in particular its significant storage capacity and high data transfer rates, will enable the delivery of an unparalleled, consistent and repeatable UHD experience."

Ground Shaking Cellular

Earthquakes affect a lot of people on earth. It is terrible the damage that earthquakes can do, but it is made worse when you can't reach emergency services because the cell towers aren't able to work due to damage from said earthquakes. LA has vowed to change that, and made new regulations on the quality of new towers.

The Los Angeles City Council on Friday moved to require future free-standing cellphone towers be built to the same seismic protection standards as public safety buildings, which are meant to be usable after a strong earthquake. Under current regulations, cell towers in the city are built to a lesser standard. They're expected to remain standing after a major temblor but not necessarily usable.

The Keurig of Food

We are all very familiar with the coffee maker that allows you to make individual cups of coffee in mere seconds, and now a similar machine has recently been launched that attempts to do the same thing - for food. This new device is called the Genie and all you do is put in your smart baking pod and away you go.

At the end of the 30 sec baking process, the Genie door will pop open, unleashing the mind blowing aroma of a chef. Inside you’ll find your personalized freshly baked dish, exactly the way you pictured it, exploding with your specifically chosen flavor! Bon Appetite

Technology Hits the Philippines

In North America we have many apps for things such as hailing cabs and paying for them through your smart-phone. The Philippines has not been on board with these kind of apps till now. This could be a great lead forward for app developers in that country as well as for consumers as it does in fact make travel that much more easy.

The DOTC is also imposing certain standards for vehicle eligibility, such as the requirement of global positioning system (GPS) tracking and navigation devices for convenient and safer services. Only sedans, Asian Utility Vehicles (AUV), Sports Utility Vehicles (SUV), vans, or other similar vehicles will be allowed. A maximum age limit of seven (7) years will be enforced.

Editors Note: What is an "Asian Utility Vehicle"?

Gaming in the Void

We all have that one game that has captured our interest and imagination for quite some time, and done so in such a way that we wished to actually be there. Though this is impossible, Ken Bretschneider is working on giving us the next best thing. This will be called the "Void"; a padded room and a head mounted display. All of this to provide the best to date of virtual reality.

As soon as next summer, customers visiting The Void could don his custom-built virtual reality gear and not only be immersed in a different world, but able to walk and run around in it. What looks like a bland room lined with dense foam walls will be transformed into something entirely different. Imagine it as laser tag on steroids, or a video game you get to dive into.

Pre-Apps

Ever had the desire to pre-order a new App before it is released? Well, I haven't. If you have been chomping at your virtual bit and can't wait to give your money away, you may be glad to hear that Google has now allowed this through Google Play Store.

Google has introduced an interesting new feature to the Google Play Store after it began allowing users to pre-register for upcoming Android apps.
Terminator Genisys: Revolution from Glu Mobile - the company that recently took investment from China's Tencent - is the first title to take advantage of the feature, as the folks at Android Police noticed. Interested users simply tap the pre-register icon (which is where 'download' would usually be) to show their interest.

Kids React to Apple Watch

Normally, some of these kids reactions grate on my nerves, but when they see how really useless the Apple Watch is, it kind of melts my heart. Such sweet kids.

 

Lego Landers

Many have heard of the game "Skylanders" and of its success. LEGO has a brick up their sleeve and are making a game similar, called "Dimensions". This game has sets from The Lord Of The Rings series as well as Batman, but they are also bringing characters from Back To The Future, Doctor Who and the Simpsons.

For the first time ever, characters from different universes join forces in worlds outside their own. A Dark Knight, a Wizard and a LEGO Master Builder traveling down the Yellow Brick Road is just the beginning.
