10 Predictions For The Iphone Of The Future !

1) Super Processor

Considering the fact that the hardware on an iPhone is limited, iOS is great for a mobile operating system but it will never match the functionality of a modern day desktop operating system. That might change in the near future.

With modern day phones getting quad core processors and gigabytes of ram, the next iPhones may be available to afford the load of stripped down version of desktop operating system. We might see the popular mac OS running on iPhones. The thought of the possibility of having the power of a desktop in the grip of your hand is indeed a majestic one.

2) Return of Google Maps

Due to the uptight response from the proud owners over the removal of Google Maps in iPhone 5, reinstating them would not be a bad idea in further models to say the least.

If by any chance Apple had decided not to pull it off, then their custom Maps could definitely reach an improvement on their part. Continue reading

The new Global Super Power…….China ! …..and The Land Of Sandy??

In North America, it’s become almost a cliché in science fiction to turn Japan and Korea into superpowers of the future. From William Gibson’s first cyberpunk novel Neuromancer, to David Mitchell’s Cloud Atlas (now a movie), we are bombarded with images of a hyper-futuristic world dominated culturally and economically by these Asian countries. And yet, despite intense political debates (and fearmongering) over China’s growing hold over the U.S., we rarely see science fiction stories that depict it becoming a superpower. It’s like we’re afraid to imagine in fiction what the U.S. presidential candidates argued over repeatedly in their debates. Even the remake of Red Dawn shies away from a Chinese future; the movie was about a Chinese invasion, but that detail was changed in post-production to North Korea.

Still, there are stories like Looper and Maureen McHugh’s novel China Mountain Zhang that are set in a future where China has eclipsed the West. A few themes emerge from stories like these, where most U.S. and Canadian fiction fears to go. Continue reading

Samsung Teams Up With Yahoo For Interactive TV Service

Samsung has just teamed up with Yahoo, creating a multi-year partnership that will bring the search company’s interactive Connected TV platform to Sammy’s 2012 lineup of smart TVs

Connected TV—software that brings interactive content like trivia, program statistics and playable games to the shows you’re watching—hasn’t gotten off to the best of starts so far. Clearly, though, Samsung thinks it shows promise. In particular, the tie-in will allow Samsung TV users to use their smartphone or tablet as an extra remote, or as a means through which to consume Yahoo’s additional content. That sounds pretty good.

The one major downside? Yahoo’s service also recognizes commercials—so you could expect twice the advertising along with your entertainment.
