How much would you pay for a Google Cr48

first_imgUnsurprisingly, I love my Cr-48. I say unsurprisingly because I feel like it was made for me. As a blogger I need little more than a web browser, an SD card slot, and crazy battery life. That is practically all the CR-48 is. Well, that and free data from Verizon Wireless for 2 years, and while 100mb/month doesn’t sound like much, consider Verizon having offered that to 30,000 people for free, and even more to everyone else who ever buys a Chrome OS device. As an added bonus I had already been a Chrome convert since it’s initial Chromium build in Linux, so I was a happy guy.Despite its many flaws I wanted to share this experience with as many people as I could. As I watched the Google PR event where they announced Chrome OS, a barcode lay in the background of the event. My trusty Android phone already in hand, I snapped a shot of it and was whisked away to a brief form where I might request a device. I not only filled it out for myself, but tweeted the URL so many others could experience the device.Today it’s estimated that Google gave out a little more than 30,000 of these sub-notebooks. Free. Not even a shipping charge. A more than generous offering and a great way to get the device in the hands of as many people as possible to help shake the fear of “yet another OS” from the presentation. These devices have been picked apart, teased, discarded, and loved in what seemed to me to be the weirdest combination of responses from a device I had ever seen. Probably the most interesting thought still reigns clear in the minds of many: Where can I buy one?!They aren’t for sale. The Cr-48 was a reference model. The mold from which hardware manufacturers could use to design and sell their own Chrome OS devices, which should be showing up in just a few short months. So here 30,000 people sit with a device that only the skilled can replicate on their own hardware (I’ve yet to see one that compares) with no price tag, and no real way to assess its value. Sure, compare it to loose similarities like the $450 Jolibook or the $1,000 Macbook Air. That’s fair, right? No. The JoliBook doesn’t have free data and access to cheap unlimited data. And while neither does the Macbook Air, the hardware similarities there end with relative screensize and battery life. The fact that this device even could be compared to a MacBook Air speaks highly of it.So what’s the value of a device that you got for free, offers chunks of free internet, has amazing battery life, and puts you on the cutting edge of a brand new kind of computing?I asked around, and for a used one, it didn’t seem like most would spend more than $400 to buy it off of me. Obviously I didn’t sell it, but that has more to do with the combination of really liking the device and a the complexity behind selling something I got for free for $400, but it’s interesting to me to see its implied value. Owning one puts you in a very exclusive club, and it’s membership has a very real value.last_img read more

Skype for PS Vita released oneups Windows Phone version

first_imgJust days after Windows Phone users got their hands on a non-beta Skype app, it has arrived for PS Vita owners, too. And in what must come as an unpleasant shock to the WinPho crowd, Skype for the PS Vita can actually run in the background.Yes, you can play Lego Batman 2 and Skype will camp out quietly and listen for incoming calls and messages. If someone rings while you’re beating bad guys into bricks, an alert pop-up appears in the corner of your screen and you can tap the PS button to answer. Skype for PS Vita also lets you make voice calls to any standard phone — as long as you’re a subscriber or have Skype credit in your account to cover it, of course.Both the front and rear cameras are supported, too, so you can flip the view around and take your friends on a virtual tour of your new apartment just like Fatal1ty does in the official demo video.You’d think that the new Skype app for Windows Phone would be at least as full-featured since Microsoft owns the company now. Did Sony really do a better job of implementing multitasking support than Microsoft did? Or was it just easier for the Skype team to tap into the Vita’s backgrounding features? Whatever the case may be, the fact remains that Microsoft’s own full-featured mobile OS isn’t even on par with the one offered on a competitor’s portable gaming platform.But hey, at last your Vita-toting friends will soon be able to talk to you from the comfort of your couch — once Skype for the Xbox 360 arrives.More at Skypelast_img read more

BLU launches crazycheap Tegra 3 Android phones phablet

first_imgBudget phone maker BLU Products has added three new devices to its line-up, and all run Nvidia’s quad-core Tegra 3 processor. The wallet-friendly phones come in two screen sizes — 4.5 and 5.7 inches — and will sell for between $249 and $349. Best of all, they’re all unlocked from day one. No need to get carrier permission to avoid any legal complications here.The BLU Quattro 4.5 HD stacks up nicely against the Nexus 4. In addition to the 1.5GHz Tegra chip, it’s got 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage and a capable 8MP rear-facing camera with an f/2.4 aperture lens. The 4.5-inch screen offers the same native resolution as the Nexus 4 and its ever-so-slightly smaller diagonal means there’s an equally slight increase in pixel density — but not enough that anyone would really notice. It’s also clad with Gorilla Glass for added durability. At $10 less than the Nexus 4, it’s a solid alternative.For those who think that 4.5 inches is still a bit undersized, there’s the Quattro 5.7 HD. That’s bigger than just about everything except Huawei’s 6.1-inch beast. The Quattro 5.7 HD will be substantially more affordable at just $299, but it does come with a few caveats. First, the display isn’t full HD — it’s 1280 x 720. There’s also no LTE support and only 4GB of internal storage. But there is a micro SD expansion slot, and that $299 price tag is hard to beat for a device this size that runs a real processor (sorry, Kogan).Rounding out the trio is the Quattro 4.5. It’s a scaled-back version of the 4.5 HD with a qHD display and a 5 megapixel camera. As with the Quattro 5.7, internal storage is bumped down to 4GB. Again, that’s not a lot of space built-in, but it’s expandable and the $249 price tag is hard to argue with.For budget-conscious shoppers who don’t want to sacrifice performance, the new BLU Quattro phones are well worth checking out. At $350 or less for unlocked phones that run on AT&T or T-Mobile’s HSPA networks, they’re hard to beat.More at PR Newswirelast_img read more

Source: Dublin City CouncilKennedy Wilson initially donated €2.5 million and agreed to help raise the rest. A planning application is currently with An Bord Pleanála with a decision expected in May.The council has said that its agreement with Kennedy Wilson means that the firm has to raise a minimum of 51% of the project costs. To raise the remainder, the council plans take a loan from the European Investment Bank (EIB).Kennedy Wilson will continue to fundraise beyond the €51 million in an effort to finance loan charges, the council said. “No works will commence until a minimum of 51% of the required funding has been raised in philanthropy,” a council spokesperson has said.So far, €5 million has been committed to the project, they said. “Based on previous experience of similar projects internationally we are confident that the required minimum 55% in philanthropic funding will be achieved”.“I think this project has huge potential for urban regeneration,” says Jackson. “The whole area will be transformed.”However, he has said that the project is now likely to cost over €100 million given inflation and construction costs. “Without fear or hesitation,” says Jackson. “If this doesn’t start and if the fundraising process doesn’t start, I’d be worried about the overall cost in the long-term.” Concerns raised over funding of Dublin’s City Library at Parnell Square The project is expected to cost over €100 million.

That’s a key component of the project, the financial viability.”The estimated cost of the project rose from €60 million to €100 million since it was launched in September 2016. Yet construction inflation could push up those costs even more, Jackson has said. Meanwhile, Independent councillor Mannix Flynn has said that as the project slowly progresses, a large portion of real estate sits idle. “You have an enormously important building up there.

Assassins Creed Origins Educational Mode Teaches Players About Egypt

first_imgStay on target As a history buff, I love how the Assassin’s Creed games allow players to experience history. I’m the guy who spends hours reading all of the in-game codexes to learn about each game’s time periods. This is an important aspect of the franchise and something that helps it stand out from other AAA titles on the market.According Assassin’s Creed: Origins Marketing Manager, Andrien Gbinigie, the game will allow players to experience history like never before. On Twitter, Gbinigie said the game will have a mode called Discovery Tour. Launching in the early part of 2018, this will be a “dedicated, educational mode where you can free roam Ancient Egypt in game.” This mode will not have combat, nor will it have time restraints. Players are free to indulge in Ancient Egyptian history for as long as they like.Super excited for the announcement of Discovery Tour by Assassin’s Creed: Ancient Egypt.

Players will meet historical figures like Queen Cleopatra and Julius Caesar. As in previous titles, players can freely explore the world on foot, horseback, or boat. Combat has been given an overhaul to make it more visceral and intense than before. There will even be a horde mode where players face off against waves of increasingly difficult enemies. Ubisoft promises this will be the biggest Assassin’s Creed yet.Assassin’s Creed: Origins will launch on PC, PS4, and Xbox One on October 27. You can pre-order it now from Amazon.last_img read more

Major Road Closure Starts This Weekend

We discussed the project with TxDOT’s Deidrea George:“We’re taking away the access from Spur 5 to I-45 if you’re coming from the University of Houston area,” says George. Those detours go into place as TxDOT prepares to start work on new northbound connectors linking I-45 to U.S. 59. George says the $30 million project is designed to eliminate the weaving that bogs down traffic. “A lot of time motorists are trying to get to 59 and 288 and they’re having to travel two, three, and four lanes to get over to access that,” explains George. “While those already in the left lane have to get over to access I-45 North.”     Northbound Spur 5 at I-45 will close at 9:00 Friday night and TxDOT expects to have detours in place for about seven months.

YouTube Shooter Told Family Members She Hated The Company

first_imgAPA sign for YouTube is displayed from windows at a Walmart corporate office in San Bruno, Calif., Tuesday, April 3, 2018. A woman opened fire Tuesday at YouTube headquarters, wounding some people before fatally shooting herself as terrified employees huddled inside, police and witnesses said. (AP Photo/Jeff Chiu)A woman who believed she was being suppressed by YouTube and told her family members she “hated” the company opened fire at YouTube’s headquarters in California, wounding three people before taking her own life, police said.Investigators do not believe Nasim Aghdam specifically targeted the three victims when she pulled out a handgun and fired off several rounds in a courtyard at the company’s headquarters south of San Francisco on Tuesday, police said.But a law enforcement official with knowledge of the investigation told The Associated Press that Aghdam had a longstanding dispute with the company. The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the case, said Aghdam used the name “Nasime Sabz” online.A website in that name decried YouTube’s policies and said the company was trying to “suppress” content creators.“Youtube filtered my channels to keep them from getting views!” one of the messages on the site said. “There is no equal growth opportunity on YOUTUBE or any other video sharing site, your channel will grow if they want to!!!!!”Aghdam “hated” YouTube and was angry that the company stopped paying her for videos she posted on the platform, her father, Ismail Aghdam, told the Bay Area News Group.On Monday, he called police to report his daughter missing after she didn’t answer the phone for two days and warned officers that she might go to YouTube, he said.Officers in Mountain View — about 30 miles (48 kilometers) from YouTube’s headquarters — found her sleeping in her car in a parking lot around 2 a.m. Tuesday but let her go after she refused to answer their questions. Aghdam didn’t appear to be a threat to herself or others, police spokeswoman Katie Nelson said.Nelson would not say whether officers had been warned that Aghdam might have been headed to YouTube headquarters.Earlier Tuesday, law enforcement said the shooting was being investigated as a domestic dispute but did not elaborate. It was not immediately clear why police later said the people shot were not specifically targeted.APThis undated photo provided by the San Bruno Police Department shows Nasim Aghdam. Law enforcement officials have identified Aghdam as the person who opened fire with a handgun, Tuesday, April 3, 2018, at YouTube headquarters in San Bruno, Calif., wounding several people before fatally shooting herself in what is being investigated as a domestic dispute, according to authorities. (Courtesy of San Bruno Police Department via AP)One of the victims — a 36-year-old man — was in critical condition, a spokesman for San Francisco General Hospital said. A 32-year-old woman was in serious condition and a 27-year-old woman in fair condition, the spokesman said.YouTube employee Dianna Arnspiger said she was on the building’s second floor when she heard gunshots, ran to a window and saw the shooter on a patio outside.“It was a woman and she was firing her gun. And I just said, ‘Shooter,’ and everybody started running,” Arnspiger said.She and others hid in a conference room for an hour while another employee repeatedly called 911 for updates.The world’s biggest online video website is owned by Silicon Valley giant Google, but company officials said it’s a tight-knit community. The headquarters has more than a thousand engineers and other employees in several buildings. Originally built in the late 1990s for the clothing retailer Gap, the campus south of San Francisco is known for its sloped green roof of native grasses.Inside, Google several years ago famously outfitted the office with a 3-lane red slide for workers to zoom from one story to another.“Today it feels like the entire community of YouTube, all of the employees, were victims of this crime,” said Chris Dale, a spokesman for YouTube.YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki said in a tweet the company would “come together to heal as a family.”Officers and federal agents responding to multiple 911 calls swarmed the company’s campus sandwiched between two interstates in the San Francisco Bay Area city of San Bruno.Zach Vorhies, 37, a senior software engineer at YouTube, said he was at his desk working on the second floor of one of the buildings on the campus when the fire alarm went off.He got on his skateboard and approached a courtyard, where he saw the shooter yelling, “Come get me.” He said the public can access the courtyard where he saw the shooter without any security check during working hours.There was somebody lying nearby on his back with a red stain on his stomach that appeared to be from a bullet wound.He said he realized it was an active shooter incident when a police officer with an assault rifle came through a security door. He jumped on his skateboard and took off.Officers discovered one victim with a gunshot wound when they arrived and then found the shooter with what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound several minutes later, San Bruno Police Chief Ed Barberini said. He said two additional gunshot victims were later located at an adjacent business. Sharelast_img read more

Aviation Ministry holds first consultations with MRO industry

The government at on Monday’s meeting sought suggestion from the MRO players, however, not much could be deliberated on Monday as it was the first interface with them,” the sources said.A second meeting in this regard is expected to take place in the near future, where the issue are likely to be discussed in details, they said.last_img read more

Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires

first_img Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires In other words, if this was a date, Arians better not crack out the fresh cut flowers or arrange a carriage ride through the park. And I don’t even want to hear the word “reservations.” Nope, Thursday night calls for Chinese take out and Netflix. No movie too adventurous though. Nothing with explosions or super heroes. Nothing starring Chris Hemsworth or Jeremy Renner. You know what? Try The English Patient. It doesn’t get more boring than that. Granted, the goal is to make the Seahawks drowsy, but if the Cardinals’ offense can be as dull and effective as Ralph Fiennes’ acting, you might just put mighty Seattle to sleep.The Seahawks are 5-1. They haven’t lost the turnover battle in a single game this season. They’ve run the ball more than they’ve thrown in it five games out of six. They’ve won the time of possession battle five games out of six. Seattle and Denver are considered the two best teams in the NFL, but the Seahawks don’t have a dynamic offense. Seattle wants to establish Marshawn Lynch, which sets up the play action pass for Russell Wilson, which allows for the offensive balance they seek, which leads to first downs and lengthy scoring drives, which keeps their defense off the field, which keeps their defense fresher than their opponent’s, which leads to their victories. The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo 0 Comments   Share   You want to beat the Seattle Seahawks Thursday night?Bore them to death.I realize that Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians loves the deep passing game, putting in wrinkles like Patrick Peterson at wideout and having an overall aggressive approach offensively, but he needs to quit on all that this week. It’s time to lean on old school principles: run the ball, control the clock, don’t turn it over, field position and win special teams. That’s how you’re going to beat the elite team in the division this week, and no other way. Top Stories Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Granted, the best way to keep the Hawks from their formula for winning is to light them up for three scores early, take them out of their rhythm and make them play catch up. But the Cardinals don’t have that kind of firepower. So, you do the next best thing. Beat them at their own game.The Cardinals’ defense is the strength of the team. Let them play the starring role Thursday night. Give them the chance to outplay Seattle’s celebrated D. That requires giving D-Wash, Peterson and the boys the same advantages Pete Carroll’s offense gives his defense. Don’t make them defend a short field, don’t make them defend 20 percent longer than Seattle has to, and don’t let major offensive mistakes put them in a position to do more than what should be required of them.Time to get boring.Like public access channel boring. Church boring. The comedy of Dick Cheney boring.From Arians to Zastudil, the team needs to jump on the stale trail, beat on the hum drum, overdose on chill pills.Time to leisurely stroll out onto that field Thursday night and show these Seahawks who’s dull.Who’s with me?!?last_img read more
