First i must admit, the sets of BlackBerry coming in these days are awesome and what makes it very much interesting is that they aren't just working on redesigning the shapes and feel of their devices instead they work on the software too. That is something BlackBerry fans weren't expecting.

iPhone were the first to do something like this and Nokia took up the step by introducing Android and Microsoft but BlackBerry maintained on this OS 10 generation which has tremendously changed the way BB Users communicate with their phone.

Anyways that's by the side, i am here to introduce you to the all new BlackBerry OS 10 version 3 (10.3) which according to the company it brings together a new look and feel, along with powerful new productivity features designed to boost productivity, collaboration and communication.


  • Android FULLY compatible Operating System with more ways to access apps. It's Android and BlackBerry Apps all in one OS!!! Now that's two for one.


  • The Power to go anywhere, Blackberry Blend brings messaging and content that's on your BlackBerry to your Computer and Tablet with just a click a way.


  • BlackBerry Personal Assistant feature works like charm, you can manage your email, contatcs, calendar and other BB 10 features through Voice and Text command (You can say that's a SiRi beta lol) 


  • BlackBerry Hub fully functional.





Now isn't it tempting to move to BlackBerry now that everything is at your finger tips ?
 



Obviously this year has been a great year in Tech world and we the consumers can testify to that.

Anyways this is a teaser from Nokia Conversation blog and it shows that Microsoft and Nokia will be unveiling a new Lumia Smartphone.


In a nutshell the company posted


Microsoft is delivering the power of everyday mobile technology to everyone.
Come back on November 11, to find out more!
#MoreLumia

Rumor has it that this phone is going to be a lower-end smartphone due to some leaked images online but i have a good feeling that this Lumia set to be released in less than 5days might not disappoint because lately i have been listening to radio and i hear this huge voice of someone talking about a new Lumia so i'm guessing this is it but to be honest the Radio advert WOW' me and i'm expectant hope you are ?


Till 11-11-2014 we'll see and by the way the image above is the snippet of the new lumia.

Date of Release:





Officially announced    25 Feb 2014 (Not Yet on Sale as of the time of this post) 


BlackBerry Q10:

Date of Release:
30 Jan 2013          

Now in my previous post on difference between Blackberry phones, this one seem to amaze me because there isn't anything specially different between both of them excerpt the size. One report claim the reason why BlackBerry thought about this smartphone was due to high demand from customers who finds it hard very hard to SWIPE on BlackBerry Q10 and Z10.


Obviously the price for BlackBerry Q20 won't be as expensive as Q10 when it finally arrives since it's called a "CLASSIC Smartphone" bringing back the track pad should be affordable.

Choose wisely.

First of all i came across a trouble on this and i found the solution so i wanna share it to those who dunno the logic.


Short Story:
 I was trying to blog from my iPhone 5s and suddenly i mistaken Select All and Cleared the whole post i just wrote. So i followed the steps below.


Shake your iPhone/iPad.



A mini screen should POP-UP as seen in  the image below...


iPhone Undo Typing - Smartfonefreaks.com


To Redo or revert back to the updated text, shake your iPhone again... See image below...


iPhone Redo Typing - Smartfonefreaks.com

And that's how to UNDO a Text Deleted on iPhone/iPad.



If you've ever wondered and pondered where the heck is the download path for your Appcake downloaded apps then you're at the right place coz i'm about to show you how to find those apps and also backed them to your PC for a later time installation, not to waste time re-downloading and most especially to free up space on your iPhone.


First of all if you don't know Appcake then you haven't known what Jailbreak is, sadly this is not the time for that. If you want to Jailbreak your iPhone using Pangu kindly Google it to follow simple instructions and it works like magic, then you can come back to this post to check the path where your downloaded Apps are.

Difficulty: Easy
Time: 2mins
Device: All iPhone

Tutorial Begins:

For those who know Appcake:
Download iFunBox to your System, Install it normal.


Now lets locate the file we downloaded from AppCake.


1. Connect your iPhone to your system.

2. Start iFunbox you just installed.

3. Click on iFunbox Classic

Then follow the steps in the image below.






Number 7 in the image above is the downloaded files and i think the BTDownload Folders refers to the downloads from Torrent (If you've updated to the latest Appcake which now allows Torrent downloads your Apps will be stored there.)

Just incase you don't understand the directions of the arrow simply follow this steps.


Click on iFunbox Classic ---> "Raw File System" ---> User ---> Media ---> Appcake ---> Download ---> Downloaded ---> Look to your right there's the Apps you've downloaded.



Final steps for us to extract it to our PC.





Again if you don't understsand the illustration above follow below.

Once you've seen the apps, just RIGHT CLICK on the APP you want to copy to PC and then locate where you want to store it but it's advisable to copy them to your itunes folders which is....


C:\Users\Your PC Name\Music\iTunes\iTunes Media\Mobile Applications

 
So that whenever you want to install it, it appears in the iTunes Apps ready for install. 

And that's how you locate and save the apps downloaded from AppCake. Hope it was as easy i thought and if not drop your comments and we can digg it together. 

Please Note: Downloading Premium Apps from AppCake is not a legal thing to do however if you want to test the app in FULL before buying then you can download from Appcake and uninstall the app once done. The developer got family and bills to pay plus it took them sleepless night trying to code and design those stuffs just for YOU!




After launching iPhone 6 and 6 Plus few weeks back, Apple is expected to release a new sets of iPads and it's going to be a special event according to a reliable source.


The set date is October 16 and rumor has it that some spanking cute new iMacs will be coming out too (same day).
 
Apple who apprently lost $20 billion off its value after it was forced to pull the latest update for its mobile operating system iOS 8 just few hours of it launch due to series of problems with the software hopes this new iPads and iMacs will get them back on track.

We also heard about how the iPhone 6 goes bent ? 



Well, concerned iPhone 6 owners are now relieved with the help of a company who recently launched pre-bent cases to fit snugly to the misshapen devices, the cases were produced using a 3D printer plus it costs around £12, manufactured and sold by Shapeways.





It's amazing how Microsoft keeps watering our thirst on this Windows 8 Family, here comes Windows 10. One lovely feature that i so much adore is that when you run an app( you installed from Windows App Store) you can have it in the desktop instead of hovering your mouse to the top left corner of your system.

Apps from the Windows Store now open in the same format that desktop apps do and can be resized and moved around, and have title bars at the top allowing for maximize, minimize, and close with a click but the only disadvantage of this is that Windows users with small screen won't enjoy this amazing feature.

And also the Ultimate Start Up Menu is back and better, I have tried installing third party ones on my 8.1 but error, hanging and stuff, i had to uninstall it and now nothing like Factory Installed Start Up Menu.

Read On for the rest captivating features.... Pssss It'll be available early 2015!

" It’s a humbling and amazing thing to work on Windows, which is used by over 1.5 billion people in every country of the world. From kids playing with computers for the first time, to writers and journalists, to engineers, to gamers, to CEOs, at some point Windows has empowered all of us.


In the Windows team, we’re proud of this – but we also know that the world today is very different from the one in which Windows grew up. Today, devices outnumber people. Connectivity is like oxygen. The tension between the desire for agility versus stability poses a huge challenge for IT Pros. Experiences – no matter what device you’re on – just need to work. The only thing that hasn’t really changed is the situation for developers – still too much to do, and not enough time.


One way to look at it is that Windows is at a threshold :-). It’s time for a new Windows. This new Windows must be built from the ground-up for a mobile-first, cloud-first world. This new Windows must help our customers be productive in both their digital work and their digital life. This new Windows must empower people and organizations to do great things.
That new Windows is Windows 10.


Windows 10 represents the first step of a whole new generation of Windows. Windows 10 unlocks new experiences for customers to work, play and connect. Windows 10 embodies what our customers (both consumers and enterprises) demand and what we will deliver.


Windows 10 will run across an incredibly broad set of devices – from the Internet of Things, to servers in enterprise datacenters worldwide. Some of these devices have 4 inch screens – some have 80 inch screens – and some don’t have screens at all. Some of these devices you hold in your hand, others are ten feet away. Some of these devices you primarily use touch/pen, others mouse/keyboard, others controller/gesture – and some devices can switch between input types.


We’re not talking about one UI to rule them all – we’re talking about one product family, with a tailored experience for each device.
And across this breadth of devices, we are delivering one application platform for our developers. Whether you’re building a game or a line of business application, there will be one way to write a universal app that targets the entire family. There will be one store, one way for applications to be discovered, purchased and updated across all of these devices.


Windows 10 will deliver the right experience on the right device at the right time. It will be our most comprehensive platform ever.
Now, during the design of a new Windows, we spend time with many diverse customers. One of the most important of these customers is the enterprise. In the past year I’ve talked to dozens of enterprise customers and listened to how they are using and deploying Windows, and what they need from us.
These customers are betting their businesses on Windows – in the first half of this year, shipments of enterprise PCs grew 14%. In that same time period, shipments of Windows enterprise tablets grew 33%.


These customers have a need to evaluate Windows early, so we are starting our dialog with them today. For more details about what Windows 10 will have for these customers, check out this blog post on the Windows for your Business blog.


Tomorrow, we are excited to announce the Windows Insider Program, where PC experts and IT Pros can get access to a technical preview of Windows 10 for desktops and laptops. Soon after, we’ll also be releasing technical previews of Windows Server and our management tools.


With the Insider program, we’re inviting our most enthusiastic Windows customers to shape Windows 10 with us. We know they’re a vocal bunch – and we’re looking forward to hearing from them.
The Windows Insider Program is intended for PC experts and IT pros who are comfortable using pre-release software with variable quality. Insiders will receive a steady stream of early builds from us with the latest features we’re experimenting with.


This week’s announcements are just the first chapter of our conversation with customers about Windows 10 – with a focus on enterprise features (because enterprises have a need to evaluate software early on) and the desktop/laptop experiences. Early in 2015 we’ll introduce the consumer chapter and talk much more about other device types and more consumer features. We’ll then continue the conversation with the developer chapter at our Build conference, and later in the year we’ll release Windows 10 and look forward to some amazing new devices.


Today was an important beginning for our customers and partners as we embark on the Windows 10 journey together. I encourage everyone reading this to sign up for the Windows Insider Program, download the technical preview, and let us know what you think. Check here tomorrow for specific details – but in the meantime, here’s a peek at some of the new features you can test drive once you become an Insider:



Tech Preview_Start menu


Start menu: The familiar Start menu is back, but it brings with it a new customizable space for your favorite apps and Live Tiles.


App_Commands





Everything runs in a window: Apps from the Windows Store now open in the same format that desktop apps do and can be resized and moved around, and have title bars at the top allowing for maximize, minimize, and close with a click.




Tech Preview_Three program snap and suggestions





Snap enhancements: You can now have four apps snapped on the same screen with a new quadrant layout. Windows will also show other apps and programs running for additional snapping and even make smart suggestions on filling available screen space with other open apps.





Tech Preview_Task view





New task view button: There’s a new task-view button on the taskbar for quick switching between open files and quick access to any desktops you create.





Tech Preview_Virtual desktop

 



Multiple desktops: Create desktops for different purposes and projects and switch between these desktops easily and pick up where you left off on each desktop.

Find files faster: File Explorer now displays your recent files and frequently visited folders making for finding files you’ve worked on is easier. "

But what happened to Windows 9 ?



Months back we read about the news that FaceBook founder Mark Zuckerberg and its Board of directors purchased the number one text messaging app Whatsapp for $19billion dollars but it looks like the transaction was withheld up until Friday(03-Oct-2014) when Reuters broke the news that the European Union has finally approved the purchase.

First thing that could have popped up on anyone's mind is "Why Do They Need Approval ?"... Well according to a reliable source  the deal was on hold because the EU felt it would harm communication telecom market...Here's what they have to say..

"We have carefully reviewed this proposed acquisition and come to the conclusion that it would not hamper competition in this dynamic and growing market. Consumers will continue to have a wide choice of consumer communications apps," European Competition Commissioner Joaquin Almunia said.


Although in the United States back in April Facebook had already gotten approval to acquire Whatsapp less than two m,onths after Facebook annouced it's proposal in February.


WhatsApp and its rivals such as KakaoTalk, China’s WeChat and Viber have in recent years won over telecoms operators’ customers with a free text messaging option, posing a serious threat to the sector’s revenues from this business, which totalled about $120 billion last year, according to market researcher Ovum.
