iPad 2017 Gadget Review: The Ideal Tablet – If You Need an Upgrade

iPad 2017 Gadget Review: The Ideal Tablet – If You Need an Upgrade

Apple’s Finest Tablet iPad Air

Way back in 2013, Apple completed the tablet when it had released the iPad Air and introduced a thinner, lighter design with a more compact body together with fingerprint sensor in its tablet. It was then considered as the Apple’s finest tablet.

Not much has been changed since then and the iPad Pro introduced in 2015 developed a new line for specialized users though the consumer grade device had not been updated for around two and half years. iPad sales seem to have fallen for some time now and users have not improved as they should with iPhones.

Several users still tend to be using the iPad 2 and 3 that does not run iOS 10, which is the latest operating system of Apple. Moreover the next version of iOS would probably drop the assistance for 32- bit apps thus making the iPad 5 out-dated.  This would mean that the new features together with security updates have not been done to most of the iPad users.

Apple’s new iPad, which had been announced three weeks back with much display, does not tend to have much by way of new features.  On the contrary it is being pitched as the appropriate upgrade for users of tabs which are four, five or six years old.

iPad_2

Slightly Thicker Chassis Same as Original iPad Air

The latest one at £339 is £40 cheaper than its forerunner that Apple expects would attract consumers in upgrading. The 9.7-inch screen is said to be much brighter about 500 nits in contrast to the Air 2’s 400, though the difference is not much noticeable.  Besides this is also a bit thicker than the Air 2 at 7.5 mm to the 6.1 mm of its waif-life precursor which shows a bit of cost-cutting from the point of view of cutting the price down for Apple.

However it has a marginal difference. The slightly thicker chassis tends to be the same as the original iPad Air and if the user is looking for a case other than the snap-on cover of Apple, then they should make a note of this.

The other variance is the A-9 chip of Apple which gives a performance upgrade on the A8 in the case of iPad Air 2.  This means that it would possibility have updates of iOS software for one year longer.

Taking into consideration that people seem to hold on to their tabs for few years, this seems to be an essential alteration.

Missed Some of the Features of iPad Pro

The 1.2 megapixel selfie camera and the 8-megapixel camera has not changed since the only thing is camera could be useful is for video calls. None of them seem to have the 10-hour battery life which Apple has claimed and that the latest one functions flawlessly.

The new tab seems to have missed out on some of the features of the iPad Pro.  The new tab is said to be everything which a tablets may require.  It has a great screen, with long battery life together with abundantly power. As in the case of the last two iPads, it had the Touch ID fingerprint sensor that not only tends to get unlock but is also being utilised more for payments.  Priced at £339, its price cut has been the most noticeable factor and not many essential changes have taken place in the new iPad.

How Apple and Microsoft are keeping the desktop off its deathbed

How Apple and Microsoft are keeping the desktop off its deathbed

Apple and Microsoft are working silently to keep desktop ‘alive’

However desktop computers will take a new form in upcoming days.

Tech companies will never wish to do away with a product category which helped in building some of the largest tech firms in the world. In order to keep the consumers hooked on to the traditional computers they will try to work with a different form factor, build in new functionalities and take the price further down to make it affordable.

Sliding sales is a sign of worry

Over the years desktops sales are declining dramatically and quite interestingly the most used operating system happens to be Android not Windows at the moment.

This simply add to the fear that Android devices which basically comprises of anything else than desktops are gaining the edge over the desktops. In similar fashion Apple iOS has more users that the Apple desktop OS which means more number of people are products like iPhone, iPods, and iPads than the Mac Desktops.

What tech companies doing to avoid it?

Apple is working towards making Mac Pro desktops highly customizable in order to give flexibility to the consumers in using it. To be more precise Apple is bringing about the marriage between a desktop and mobile which will be seen more prominently in upcoming range of desktops not just from the Apple but also from other manufacturers.

Apple is also trying to make the iPad Pro work better with the desktop in order to make sure people makes use of the both the devices. Microsoft has also started on the same lines with the launch of the Windows 10 just a year ago.

This helps in bringing the best of the mobile technology right to the desktop. Microsoft’s Surface ranges of devices are simply highly sophisticated, portable, advanced version of desktops disguised as a tablet for the users. Likewise Samsung has just launched the Galaxy S8 phones which have the ability to plug in with the desktop using a special dock and it brings a desktop like experience right to the small screen.

Self Destruct Gadgets Made not so Mission Impossible

Self Destruct  Option will Become a Stable Feature on Electronic Gadgets Soon

Mission Impossible movies have made the self destruction options quite popular in the modern age but we still don’t have that luxury. Soon we will have such gadgets like laptops and smartphones which can self destruct on its own but this technology will only be made available to corporate employees and government officials. The new self destruct mechanisms possess the ability to destroy the electronic gadgets within 10 seconds by receiving the wireless commands triggered by the sensors.

Arabian researchers had made the impossible possible

This technology has been developed by a team of researchers at King Abdullah University of Science & Technology (KAUST) in Saudi Arabia. It works swiftly and can effectively work across a variety of common semiconductor technology which is usually used in the most electronic devices. Researchers have stated that first customers are expected to be those who are in need of data protection such as the intelligence communities, hedge funds, social security administration, large corporations and all those who handles massive data.

How This Self Destruct Technology Works?

The self destruct mechanism developed by the team works on making the expandable polymer found in the modern electronics to their own benefit. When this polymer is heated over 80 degrees Celsius then it tends to expand to seven times more than its original volume. The trigger mechanism introduced in this technology helps in the polymer expansion which comes right from the heather electrodes drawing power from the battery of either Smartphone or laptop. They are making study available for the wider audience by publishing it in the upcoming issue of the journal called Advanced Materials Technologies.

The Testing Scenarios Conducted for Self Destruct

The researchers at KRAUT have tested this self-destruct mechanism for variety for scenarios where the self destruct can be triggered remotely. In the first testing a GPS sensor was utilized to trigger the device in case they move more than 50 meters away from their starting point. In the second testing researchers made use of the light sensor to automatically trigger the self destruct mechanism. This mechanism will helpful in such scenario where a top secret device is moved out of the box and placed under the light. The third scenario made use of the pressure sensor to cause the self destruction of the device in case it meets with any kind of unwanted force. This means if anyone tries to get into the device by forcefully opening the casing then device can be triggered to explode in order to safeguard it from being compromised.

In the fourth scenario researchers tested the compromising of the device or self-destruct functionality to its core. It was ensured that no one else expect the rightful person is able to trigger the self-destruct command making use of a smartphone app. Researchers has found the right way to ensure that this functionality only worked when a particular password is entered into the chip for destroying the device on demand.
