No Console Required: Samsung And Sony Team Up For Playstation Now Service

With the advent of Playstation Now, the console is no longer required to play some Playstation titles. Sony have collaborated with Samsung to bring the game streaming service, PlayStation Now, to Samsung Smart TVs next year in 2015. The Sony gaming service will be made available in the first half of 2015 beginning with US and Canada.

What Will The Mobile Market Look Like in 2015?

While you might be content with the phone or tablet that you bought in 2013, you’re still probably curious about what new gadgets are coming out in the market in the future and how much influence they will have on device manufacturers going forward. This simple curiosity is what keeps some people excited about technology and enthusiastic about its evolution. In the end, consumers will dictate how the market will look. However, if there’s one thing I have learned, it’s that whatever catches on towards the end of one year will continue its trend into the next. Here are some predictions concerning the state of mobile technology in the year 2015.

Skype Can Now Translate Video Calls!

When you actually stop and think about it for a moment, a service like Skype is pretty amazing. It doesn’t matter where you are in the world, Skype allows you to share a video call with any other user.

We’ve used it for so long we’ve probably gotten a little used to it, but the technology behind it really is incredible. And now, it’s about to get even better. On 12/15/14, they released a preview of a new feature called Skype Translator, and it does just what it sounds like it should do – it translates video calls if the callers are speaking different languages. And it’s not something that just came out of nowhere – it’s the culmination of a ton of work over the past several years.

In the preview version, it worked with English and Spanish speakers. Skype hears the callers speaking, translates their words into text, and then audibly speaks the text into the correct language for the other person in real time. And here’s a neat fact: each person will hear the text in the correct accent of the other speaker.

It is hopeful that this service will be especially beneficial to schools all over the world.

It’s unknown when the final version of the software will be available, but I wouldn’t think it would take too awfully long. What do you think? Let us know in the comments section below!

WhatsApp on Web soon?

The popular cross-platform mobile messaging tool WhatsApp has made a mark in the smartphone arena and now the service is planning to make its grip on the web platform as well. If the rumours are to be believed, WhatsApp may soon come up with a web version of its widely-accepted messaging app.
As per a report by, the screenshot of the HTML programme above encodes word ‘WhatsApp Web’. In addition to that, the code also embeds logging into a web service and checking online status, the later feature is seen on the mobile version. However, there is no definite evidence in support to the report, and an official announcement from the largest mobile service is still awaited.

In today’s day, where everything is about seamless interconnectivity between web and mobile, WhatsApp shouldn’t remain constricted to smartphones.

Meanwhile, WhatsApp is the only popular messaging service which doesn’t have a web version. Its competition such as Line, Viber, Telegram and WeChat allow users to text both via phone and web. With a user base of over 600 million, the tool definitely needs a web version.

Facebook Preparing a Social Network For Business in 2015

Facebook has over 1.3 billion people on the social network, but the amount of time spent on Facebook is less than ideal — at only 40 minutes per day — it drags behind other social services. One of the reasons for the low average user time may be the fact Facebook is blocked at work. Most companies block Facebook from being accessed, to stop time wasted on the social networking platform.

However, Facebook wants to enter the workplace, with a new work service. CEO Mark Zuckerberg is apparently working on the project with a team at Facebook, creating a service to rival LinkedIn and get the social network unbanned from the workplace. Facebook at Work would have a few similarities to the regular Facebook service, but would focus on calendar updates, quick messages and separate work-friends from others.

Texting Hurts Your Spine!

That’s correct – a back surgeon from New York has done all kinds of research on the subject, and he’s convinced that the way we normally text, by looking down at our phones, exerts around 60 pounds of additional force on our heads. Given the fact that many Indians spend hours a day texting, Whatsappin friends over time, that pattern can really have a damaging impact on the spine. If left unchecked, it can ultimately lead to back surgeries, etc.

How long do you spend texting each day? Have you suffered any spinal problems directly related to texting? If so, please tell us about them in the comments section below. It will be interesting to see how common this problem really is!

TextSecure Protocol Used to Encrypt WhatsApp

Are you ever concerned that the messages you share between friends can ever be read by others? Most messaging services such as LINE and WhatsApp have more features than just text support; you can send audio and video as well. So should you be overly concerned about your data? Well, I wouldn’t worry too much about it if I were you as it appears as though your privacy is being taken quite seriously by WhatsApp.  They have just made a deal with Open Whisper Systems this week to use TextSecure protocol to scramble messages, thereby hiding the message.

“Open Whisper Systems said in a blog post, “WhatsApp deserves enormous praise for devoting considerable time and effort to this project…Even though we’re still at the beginning of the rollout, we believe this already represents the largest deployment of end-to-end encrypted communication in history.”

The TextSecure encryption is enabled automatically as a default setting in the most recent version of WhatsApp for mobile devices powered Android software. Open Whisper said. “Brian Acton (WhatsApp co-founder) and the WhatsApp engineering team has been amazing to work with…Their devotion to the project as well as their thoroughness in getting this done are inspiring in a world where so many other companies are focused on surveillance instead of privacy.”

Open Whisper is an open-source project that is supported by grants and donations.During the South By Southwest conference earlier this year, former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden is known to have praised the encryption tools offered by Open Whisper.

The announcement was confirmed to AFP but apparently they declined to comment any further.  In October, Facebook completed its purchase of WhatsApp, with the mostly stock deal reaching nearly $22 billion.

Duck Hunt is Coming to the Wii U

The first video game we can remember playing is Duck Hunt on the original Nintendo (NES) System.  Duck Hunt first came out way back in 1984 and was one of Nintendo’s original classic games. It’s not staying “classic”, though, as Nintendo has announced they’re re-releasing it for the Wii U.

Guy Bought 99 iPhones to Propose & Got Turned Down

Who knew there was such a thing as Single’s Day? (Props to you if you did know that!) Apparently it’s celebrated dreaded in China on November 11th. Unfortunately, one Chinese man is going to be remembering this Single’s Day for the rest of his life. Deciding he didn’t want to be single anymore, he decided to propose to his girlfriend before the unfortunate “holiday” could visit him again. And this particular man spent a ton of money just to pop the question – and I’m not even talking about an engagement ring. He went out and bought 99 iPhone 6’s, set them up like a gigantic heart, and proposed to his girlfriend inside of the iPhone heart.

Unfortunately, love was not in the air, and she said no. I hope all those iPhone 6’s were still within the return period, because the heartbroken guy spent somewhere in the ballpark of $82,000. And no, I have no idea what he planned on doing with the iPhones if she’d said yes. So if you think you’re having a bad day, just look at the photo below.

YouTube adds Support for 60 Frames Per Second. Why?

YouTube has made a new feature available in which videos will be able to stream at 60 frames per second as opposed to its usual 30. While the majority of video buffs and avid gamers out there will be excited about this, it’s kind of hard for people on the sidelines to understand what’s so interesting about doubling the amount of frames that each video displays per second. Also, there is a lot of science here that I think we’re missing out on in the middle of all of this excitement. YouTube’s move towards 60 frames per second is a break from a very long tradition that goes back to when black and white television was aired.

The Darknet: How do I access it?

You would imagine that an underground network such as the Darknet would be quite difficult to access. In fact, it is not. It is extremely easy to gain entry. This is because the true security of this network is the decentralized threat model of anonymity engines like TOR and I2P. By this, no one on the network can identify anyone else on the network, because of the way information is passed between peers.

iPhone fans Camping Out For New iPhone

We are less than a week away from Apple’s big reveal on September 9th, and while many people are excited, some people are extremely excited. While that’s the date we expect Apple to officially reveal two new iPhones and possibly the first iWatch, apart from rumors and speculation, there’s not much to go on. So in theory, Apple could technically reveal none of those things, but they’d probably have a lot of angry people on their hands were that the case. Chances are, they will reveal the new iPhone(s), and the world will go crazy once again as it always does before a new iPhone releases. Some people already seem to be going crazy, though, as they are already camping out outside of an Apple store in New York City.
