Digital Makeup

This is pretty nifty and makes our nifty and nerdy cool video of the day. OMOTE is real-time face tracking and projection mapping that does some pretty nifty stuff. Keep in mind that the model is a real person and the stuff on her face is projected and mapped. Awesome coolness.

Cortana Trash Talks Android

I love my Android phone and I also love the way Cortana trash talks Android. Microsoft is building a lot of character into their personal assistant. Just be careful what you ask her as this AI has survived the Covenant invasion and a lot more.

HPs $199 Windows 8.1 Notebook

If you don't think a Chromebook has quite enough features for you to use for your daily grind, a Windows laptop probably gets the job done better, but if you lose the think, you're generally out a lot more money. That's where Chromebooks have exceled and I do like it. The latest generation of Chromebooks is a bit more pricey and Microsoft really wants to compete in this space and they are. The HP Stream is a $199 Windows 8.1 machine that is powered by AMD and comes with 100GB of OneDrive. There's more details at the link below.

Instead of Intel's Atom or Pentium-SoCs here comes an AMD A4 Micro-6400T Quad-Core SoC with 1.0 GHz (up to 1.6 GHz) and integrated Radeon graphics R3 unit, which only needs 4.5 watts. This also ensures that the new cheap laptop from HP manages apparently without an active fan, because in his own excavations at us repair manual surfaced only a heatsink, but no fan on.

Smartphone Celebrates 20th Birthday

It seems that Apple didn't actually come up with the Smartphone idea. In fact, the smartphone just celebrated its 20th birthday thankfully things have gotten a little better. Simon was the name of IBMs flagship device and it actually had an amazing list of features. Take a look at the link below for all the details.

The phone was developed by firm IBM and the American cellular company BellSouth. IBM said it was called Simon because it was simple and could do almost anything you wanted. Charlotte Connelly, the content developer for the exhibition, said it was initially marketed around the idea of the game 'Simon says'.

Windows Threshold Preview in September

If you just can't wait to get your hands on Windows 8.1 SP1 Windows Threshold, there is a preview release on schedule to be released in late September of this year. While it does look like this will indeed be a public preview (read, beta), there isn't a lot of information as to whether it will be an open beta or closed to a few thousand people. There are a lot more details to come I'm sure so stay tuned.

I had heard previously from my contacts that Microsoft was aiming to deliver a public preview of Threshold available to anyone interested toward the end of calendar 2014. I'm not sure if there's still a plan to make a public consumer preview available at that time or if this "technical preview" is the only "preview" Microsoft will release before Threshold is released to manufacturing.

Apple Holiday TV Ad

I know it's early for holiday ads, but somehow this one slipped by me last year and was recently brought to my attention. It's a great ad that shows that not everyone is what they seem - that in mind, this ad shows the exception rather than the rule. Still, it's a great ad.

 

Moto 360 Up Early at Best Buy

While the Moto 360 wasn't supposed to be released for a couple more weeks, there was a sneak review that made it up online a while back and now Best Buy has leaked the full specifications and features list. What I find impressive about all of this hardware is that the Moto 360 in all its beauty is actually priced at the same as ugly square or rectangular smart watches. Hopefully that, and the two-day battery life really push the wearable market forward.

The device is also listed as having a 1.5-inch backlit LCD touch screen, with a 320×290 resolution, 205ppi, and Corning’s Gorilla Glass 3. Matching up to what we learned from a leak a week ago, we are also seeing mentions of a heart rate monitor, water resistance (up to 3.3 feet for up to 30 minutes), and an ambient light sensor.
