Google Goofs Up With Too Heavy Price Tag For Chromebook Pixel, Wonder Why I Broke My Bank!

Since the time I got hands on the Google Chromebook for $250 , I have been wishing for time to fetch me the sequel soon. And now that it is out, I am not too sure if all my prayers were worth it after all. My Chromebook gave me immense pleasure to surf like a breeze and all my cribbing for more disk space found oblivion with its awesome app support. With Google Chromebook Pixel- its younger sibling—the price climbed upped by about five times from the Chromebook, yes. But what does it actually bring for me? A stylish looking metal body for starters—sexy, slim and crisp. A great track pad, for the main course and the awesome light display as per wake or sleep mode—for the dessert! However, is that all I would get at the bank breaking tag?

On closer thought, I fell in love with its high resolution display bit—239 pixels/inch—wo ho—that could even beat the Retina Display from Apple. Before I forget, the Pixel comes with TOUCH. How could it not, no that we are in 2013! Honestly, this ups the funk quotient but reduces the functionality for users like me. I mean, with the websites as they are today, why would I drool on the touch feature for work purpose.  It merely adds to the weight. How I wish for a breezy laptop! The Pixel stands at 3.3 pounds. The bottom line remains that the Chromebook Pixel comes sans a DVD drive, hard drive et al. I just had to suffice with USB 2.0 ports at a time when most laptops have USB 3. For me the Pixel is not extravagant—it is flamboyant!

     Sony Xperia Z Tablet: Known as the world’s thinnest tablet, this gorgeous 10-inch tablet weighs just about 1 pound, is dust and water resistant, has a quad-core 1.5 GHz processor, an 8.1 MP camera and a 6,000 mAh battery.

The Photomania Factor: With 400 Effects And Cloud-Based Servicing Add A Refreshing Spin To Your Facebook Photos

Cloud-based service and instant effects make Facebook app Photomania the undisputed champion of photo editing, Aiswarya Gopan finds out by conversing with  the Co-founder and CEO, Ofir Yosef

PhotoMania is a social photo editing service that is currently available as a Facebook app. Developed by Trionity, it provides users with over 400 different effects that they can choose from to enhance their pictures. With over 35 million users, it is one of the fastest growing apps on Facebook, and will soon be available as a mobile app as well as for web use. The Tech Thirsty team got a rare glimpse into PhotoMania through an interview with the Co-founder and CEO, Ofir Yosef, and learnt a lot about what makes this app click so well.

Here are some more interesting figures about PhotoMania:

  • It ranks number 1 on Facebook among the photo editing apps and is among the top 20 entertainment apps on the social network.
  • Ever since its launch about 1.5 years ago, the PhotoMania Facebook app has managed to get over 35 million active users
  • Over 900 million photos have been created on the app so far, of which over 150 million have been shared on Facebook
  • The app’s Facebook page has over 3.5 million Likes, and growing
  • Over 2 million photos are created using PhotoMania every single day by more than 200,000 active users

PhotoMania is not just one of the fastest growing apps on Facebook, but is also among the biggest on this social network. It’s an instant solution that gives users over 400 effects and filters to apply on their images, including sketches, painting, etc. With such a wide range of effects to choose from, it’s no wonder then that the average user spends over 15 minutes per session on PhotoMania, a much higher average than the usual 1-2 minutes spent on other apps.

What makes PhotoMania unique is its cloud-based service offering. Unlike traditional photo-editing apps or software, the image processing doesn’t take place at the client side. Users upload photos via the app to the PhotoMania servers, where  the app processes them, applies the selected filters, and then sends back the finished image to the users. Thanks to the cloud nature of the app, it also enables users to store images directly on the PhotoMania servers and access them remotely.

Another key strength of having a cloud-based service is that it is essentially platform-independent. Since all the processing takes place in the back-end, the company can easily delve beyond their current Facebook app and make mobile versions or desktop versions of the app. All that changes is just the front-end or the user interface. And that’s something that’s definitely in the works, as confirmed by the CEO, Ofir Yosef. For all the photography enthusiasts, you can expect a PhotoMania mobile app to come out anytime within the next 6 months, with the long list of effects as that of the Facebook app.

So why did PhotoMania choose to begin as a Facebook app? According to Ofir, the answer lies right within the basic purpose of the social network. It gives a lot of importance to photos, with most people using Facebook to share their own photos or view their friends’ albums. It’s a great platform for working with photos, and PhotoMania saw just the right target audience in the millions of Facebook users.

PhotoMania has some amazing figures to quote, and that’s why we know for sure that this is an app that will capture a lot of attention in the near future. Over 900 million photos have already been posted on the platform, of which over 150 million photos have been uploaded on PhotoMania so far. Once the company has established its presence across the different platforms, its long-term plans do include going more social, e.g. having profile pages for its users and giving them the ability to view, like and comment on others’ photos as well.

The world of social media has evolved quite drastically, especially over the past couple of years. 2012 was hailed as the year of visual social media, what with Pinterest and Instagram hogging most of the headlines. In such a competitive age of visual social media, looks like PhotoMania will gain to be noticed. And although Ofir insists that his current priority is to focus on developing PhotoMania into a mass-market product, he agrees that the next big step will be towards generating revenues and monetizing on the success this app is sure to experience.… Read the rest

Nexus 7 vs. Nexus 10: Which Google Tablet Makes Most Sense for You?

nexus7 vs nexus10Google made quite a grand entry into the tablet arena during 2012 with its affordable Nexus 7. So it’s no wonder then that later in the year, Google came out with a full-sized, 10-inch offering of its bestselling Nexus tablet. Google’s Nexus 7 and Nexus 10 tablets boast of superior tech specs at highly competitive prices, and make for a sensible alternative to the highly priced tablets like the iPad. So, which of these is right for you?

Nexus 7: The Nexus 7, like the name suggests, features a 7-inch display with a 1280X800 pixel resolution. The Nexus 7 may be tiny but sure does pack a punch with its 1.2 GHz quad-core processor and 1 GB of RAM. If you’re among those who need a camera, the Nexus 7 could be a bit of a disappointment since it comes with just a 1.2 MP front-facing camera. The 16 GB model of the Nexus 7 costs $199.99 while the 32 GB comes for $299.99.

Nexus 10: The big brother of one of the most popular tablets of 2012 will surely blow your mind. Its 10.05-inch display has an amazing resolution of 2560X1600 pixels, making it a treat for the eyes. Within the Nexus 10 is a 1.7 GHz quad-core processor and 2 GB of RAM, making multitasking a breeze for this gadget. Another good thing about the Nexus 10 is that it has two cameras – a 5 MP rear camera and a 1.2 MP front-facing camera. If you’re willing to shell out a little extra, you can pick up the 16 GB Nexus 10 for $399 while the 32 GB will set you back by $499.

Both these tablets run on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, so in terms of OS, they’re equally matched. However, with a better processor and more RAM, it’s not surprising that Android runs much better on the Nexus 10. One of the biggest drawbacks of these tablets is the lack of a microSD card slot, limiting storage space. Another drawback is the lack of 3G connectivity option for the Nexus 10 – it can only be used on WiFi.… Read the rest
