Qwiki - Smart Information
This alpha stage site is now busy extending its arms into every kind of data. I'm a lot impressed with the Alpha release and can't imagine the final product. Like Doug calls it.. Its Information Experience at its best!!!!
Even though its Summer its time to say good bye to Froyo !!!Because its all about Ginger bread now . Yes, its Android 2.3 !!
It's hard to believe this is what Android looked like two years ago. This is exactly what Google would’ve wanted it to be!
Main highlight of this version is that it has a Bold and Beautiful Text Input interface. The keys themselves are reshaped and repositioned for improved targeting, making them easier to see and press accurately, even at high speeds.
They have also worked on Improved power Management which takes an active role in managing apps which consumes power and closing inappropriate apps which helps for better battery life .
The irony, of course, is that most of the careful design work that's gone into Android 2.3 won't ever be seen by a large portion of Android users. The definitive Android design won't be experienced by people who own phones covered in custom software. There's only a handful of Android phones in the US where you'll be able to get the real Android experience—Nexus One, T-Mobile G2 and the Nexus S—even though it's unquestionably better than anything phone makers are conjuring up themselves these days.
Whatever it may be Gingerbread is here to stay and it will !! its sharper stronger and smoother (not taller) than 2.2 !!

Unveiled at CES in January, the US based company confirmed at an Intel Developer Forum in Beijing that the dual 7-inch screen laptop is set to take on the Nintendo 3DS and the Sony NGP for the portable gaming crown.
Chinese internet company Tencent will be working in collaboration with Razer to develop games for the platform of which four titles will be pre-installed on the device.Commenting on the decision to enter the Chinese market first, Razer CEO Min-Liang Tan said, "We think we have a phenomenal opportunity in China," adding, "I think that our focus is on China, and then we'll explore the rest of the world."
Specs-wise we know so far that Razer has been working with Intel, so we can probably expect some Atom processor technology packed inside. Strongly focused on PC-style gaming, the lower screen incorporates changing keys, which take on different functions depending on what game you’re playing.
Razer have set no release date as yet, but we can expect further announcements later this year. With the 3DS already out and the possible arrival of the Sony NGP (PSP2) before the end of the year, portable gaming fans look like they have plenty to look forward to in 2011.

Digg’s Kevin Rose is the newest investor in the Square iPhone payment system unveils by which you can accept credit card payment using iPhone. The combination of credit card readers and the iPhone could soon mean almost everyone can take credit cards, from hot dog stands to homeless people begging for change.
A cool new startup has come up with a handy dongle-plus-app combo that lets you authorize, accept, and process credit card payments anywhere, directly on your iPhone.
The process is simple enough, using an accessory which will connect to your iPhone using audio input jack just swipe the card you want to charge and then an app takes information from the swiper, and transmits it out for an actual credit card payment, with a finger doing the signature.The app, as Kevin says, will even upload GPS information, so you can make sure that payments are happening in the right place. Square is going to launch it’s beta version shortly this year.
