  1. Hi RimWebians... I am sort of a newbie here.. I searched the whole forum for this topic but did not find anything related so made a new page. I have been trying to get CDMA RUIM working on recent Apple iPhones as iPhone 4 and 4S were the last iPhone I had made working and used on Reliance(via MEID Registeration). I have heard a lot about Verizon iPhone (Recent Ones - 5 5S 5C and Probably 6) work on CDMA RUIM maybe via tweaking or directly. Till now I have tried RUIM in Indian sets and US unlocked sets and can confirm non working. I met a man online who says he has tried RUIM in a Verizon Unlocked Phone and Calls and SMS work straight away. After researching more I came to know about a special sim that comes with MIN Programmed in it and you need to get your no. transferred over it (Via WebWorld). This sim when inserted in Verizon iPhone work with Data SMS and Calls all without any problems. Could someone throw some light on this matter. I tried searching over every area and wanted to know if the above is correct.If yes,then where can I buy these "Special SIM" that support data. I will be buying Verizon iPhone 5S and 5C accordingly. I have almost made my mind to order as it will work with GSM anyways but I want it to work with Reliance CDMA and with data if possible. Need Help from Experts. Thank You
  2. Lets just say that Apple is mighty generous when it comes to releasing new updates or upgrades to its mobile and computer OS. The new generation os was announced at WWDC this summer and today its been finally made available to the app store. Whats surprising is that the hefty 5.29 gb download comes for free for machines already running os x 10.6..8 Snow Leopard or later os.(I checked it on machine as old as 2009 Macbook Pro) Here are the key features taken from CNET.com Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks is now available, bringing iOS features into the fold along with other additions, including iBooks, Apple Maps, Finder Tabs, and a number of other time-saving enhancements. With Windows 8.1 hitting last week, Apple's Mavericks provides a stark contrast to the vision of Microsoft's operating system. Microsoft's stated intent was to break into the mobile space by creating a touch-centric OS that worked on both desktops and mobile devices. Apple, on the other hand, is keeping its mobile and desktop OS separate, while bringing over iOS apps and features without significantly changing the way you use your computer. What results is a Mac OS that remains familiar to its users, gives apps a cleaner look, fixes old bugs, and improves core technologies for power efficiency and responsiveness. On top of that, it features new interface elements for Safari, a new tagging system for file management, and much more. But let's stop talking and start looking at some of the more important new features. Finder Tabs are just like tabs in Safari. Drag to move them around, and hit the plus sign at the right to add a new one. (Credit: Screenshot by Jason Parker/CNET) Finder Tabs The new Finder Tabs work much in the same way the tabs do in Safari. A plus-sign button on the right lets you open a new tab, and you can drag and drop tabs just like in a Web browser. With Finder tabs, you'll be able to have two folders open side-by-side in one window, and you can simply drag and drop files across rather than copying and pasting like you would need to in earlier versions of the OS. Having multiple tabs in the Finder also means you could open one tab for Documents and another for AirDrop, letting you share files with a nearby Mac user in a snap. Finder Tags With Mavericks, Apple has chosen to go with a more flexible system for organizing your documents, letting you add tags. Now you'll be able to search on one or more tags to get just the documents you want in front of you. To give you an idea how it works, you could, for example, have a tag for "work" documents and then another for "pictures." If you searched for work, you would get all the items with that tag, and if you searched for pictures, you would get all the images in your library. But by searching on both pictures and work, you'll only get the pictures that are related to work. I think this is a welcome addition to the Finder and a great way to narrow your searches, but it will obviously only be useful if you are dedicated to adding a tag to all your documents. Still, it makes searching for obscure documents on your hard drive much easier. Full-screen apps Full-screen apps were unveiled originally in Lion, but users quickly realized the feature wasn't perfect, especially if you use multiple monitors. Fortunately with Mavericks, the feature now finally works the way it should. You can now put full-screen apps on multiple monitors and switch among them effortlessly. This fix has been much-needed for two years now, so it's good to see the problems ironed out, but I have to wonder why Apple waited so long to do it. Along with being able to sync directions with your iPhone, you can check out Apple Maps' 3D Flyover views. (Credit: Screenshot by Jason Parker/CNET) Apple Maps Apple Maps got off to a rocky start with iOS, but has improved considerably over time. Testing it out on a MacBook Pro, the app felt great when navigating with a trackpad, with smooth movement and intuitive gesture control. Everything works about the same as it does on iOS, but some extra features will come in handy for getting directions before you leave your computer. Apple says you'll now be able to find locations on Apple Maps for Mac, then sync directions with your other devices, and as in the iOS version, driving times even account for traffic. This will be especially useful for planning your trip at home, then quickly syncing with your iPhone for turn-by-turn directions when you hit the road. Apple Maps is built into the Mail, Contacts, and Calendar apps, too, so any time you see an address you can quickly find it on a map and switch to Apple Maps for a better view. iBooks As one of the features brought over from iOS devices, iBooks looks like it is pretty close to its mobile counterpart. Though it wasn't available in our preview version for this post, Apple showed us at the WWDC keynote that you'll be able to read and shop for books on your Mac and sync them with iCloud so you can switch devices and never lose your place. You'll also be able to swipe to turn pages (using your trackpad), pinch to zoom in on pictures, and scroll smoothly from page to page. You can have as many books open as you want simultaneously (great for students), and you can highlight sections and take notes -- all of which is synced on all your iOS devices. It doesn't seem to be much different from the iOS version, but it's good to finally see these features available for Mac users. The new sidebar is incredibly convenient for running through your bookmarks on the left and looking at Web sites on the right. (Credit: Screenshot by Jason Parker/CNET) Safari According to Apple, Safari now demands less from the GPU, uses less energy, and is faster than ever before. Apple says new Nitro Tiered JIT and Fast Start technologies in Safari mean Web pages feel snappier and the app doesn't waste power on Web pages and plug-ins that might churn continuously in the background. That all sounds great, but I tested the latest Safari with the older version side by side on two laptops, and didn't notice a huge difference in performance. Perhaps the performance increases are something that would be more obvious on a slower connection, but we'll have to wait and see if it really makes a difference when we review the OS. One big improvement is the new sidebar that keeps your bookmarks close at hand, and you can use tabs at the top of the sidebar to get to your Reading List and another new feature called Shared Links. Shared Links are recent links from people you follow on both Twitter and LinkedIn, giving you another option for discovering new Web sites and other interesting content from people who use those social networks. One of the more interesting new interface tweaks is the Top Sites screen, with its new, flatter look. With Mavericks, you can change your Top Sites by dragging to rearrange them, and you can drag a bookmark from your side column into Top Sites if you want to keep it handy. The Calendar app has a clean new look, with design elements that help you focus on the week at hand. (Credit: Screenshot by Jason Parker/CNET) Calendar The Calendar app got a fresh look in Mavericks, adding Facebook integration to show Facebook events along with an Event Inspector that lets you get more information about a party, meeting, or location. Now you can mouse over an event to bring up the Inspector, where you'll find handy information like driving time to the event with traffic information supplied by Maps and current weather at the event location. Clicking on the map portion of the window launches Apple Maps, where you can take advantage of the 3D views, switch map overlays, get directions, and do other useful things. The interface has also been tweaked to include smooth, continuous scrolling between days, weeks, and months, and it worked very well using the MacBook trackpad. Notifications The Notifications system got some tweaks as well. Notifications are more interactive in Mavericks, so if you receive a message, an e-mail, or a FaceTime video call, you can react within the notification window with a reply or launch FaceTime straight away. When you get an address in the Mail app, your Mac will recognize it and give you the option to see it on a mini map. Click again to go the Maps app. (Credit: Screenshot by Jason Parker/CNET) You also can allow Web sites to send you updates like the latest scores from ESPN, breaking news stories from CNET.com, and more via Notifications, even when Safari is closed. When you return to your Mac when it's in a sleeping state, you'll be able to get all the notifications you received while you were gone in a brief summary before unlocking your screen. This means it will combine messages to show you had six new messages, for example, and it will tell you the number of e-mails you missed while away. Mavericks will also update your apps automatically and let you know via notifications when the process is complete. iCloud Keychain keeps your log-ins safe There have been a number of great third-party apps over the years to manage usernames and passwords, but iCloud Keychain brings the functionality straight to your Mac for added security (not to mention relieving you of remembering all those passwords). It also makes your saved Web site usernames and passwords available on all your iOS devices. All of this information is protected using 256-bit AES encryption both on your devices and while in transit. Apple says that it only sees the already encrypted data and -- the way it is set up -- does not have the key to decrypt it. Like popular third-party password managers, iCloud Keychain will suggest complex passwords, then push them to all your devices. It also autofills log-in fields so you don't need to remember them. (Credit: Apple) Pricing and availability Apple Mavericks should be available today, October 22, and -- in a surprise announcement at the Apple event -- will be free to all users, even if you're currently running an OS as old as Snow Leopard (2007). Mountain Lion cost users $19.99 to upgrade, and I expected it would be the same for Mavericks, but it's a great move for Apple to decide to make the new OS free when Windows users are stuck paying quite a lot more. Conclusions Mac OS X Mavericks is not a sweeping change, but improves upon a solid foundation, with new features brought over from iOS to give Mac users more to work and play with. For Mac users I think the added features provide definite benefits and, as a free upgrade, why not add new useful features? But is Mavericks ambitious enough to woo Windows users into making the switch? Probably not, but I think there's more to consider than just the feature set of the latest Mac OS. Though with Windows 8.1 Microsoft has made some concessions to people who didn't like the touch-focused interface (adding a Start button and letting you boot to desktop), it's still off-putting to many mouse-and-keyboard desktop users. To be honest, I happen to think Windows 8.1 is a fine upgrade on many fronts, but I know some people are resistant to change. For them, that change is too big to bear. So, what we're probably going to see are Windows users making the switch to Mac more in protest of Microsoft's vision rather than for what they think Mac OS X has to offer. For Mac users, it looks like Mavericks will be a solid (though not life-changing) upgrade, especially when it is no cost to current OS X users. And for Windows users looking for anything other than "Metro," Mavericks will be an easier transition than ever, with more features that add convenience and speed to a (now) familiar way of computing.
  3. There is chance for all smartphone users except motorola to rejoice . soon all who thought lapdock for motorola should have inspired others will have a chance. since lot of people who already own other brand smart phone (android & apple) can get this neat clambook and have a smartphone convert into netbook. for your jobs on the go, you dont have to buy ultrabook or netbook . specially people who feel their superpower phone does most jobs for them if only it can get a bigger screen and KB with trackpad. its like the exorbitant attempt asus made with padfone. Right now they are selling clamcase for 149$ which works for ipad (all generations) and soon launching (Holiday 2012) clambook for android smartphones. specifically phones that have MHL output. there are few models in most brands which has this port support. check on wiki http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mobile_High-Definition_Link For more details please check and follow http://clamcase.com/clambook-android-and-iphone-laptop-dock.html
  4. Probably the most exciting new feature found with the new iPad is its Retina Display. The resolution is now incredibly high - 2048x1536, up from the iPad 1 and 2's 1024x768 px res. This is currently the highest resolution on any tablet out there, and by the looks of it, things will probably stay this way for a while. Of course, everything on the iPad will look much better now, including text, pictures, video and apps. Additionally, the screen has gotten a 44% increase in color saturation. Well, the new iPad didn't get a real quad-core A6 SoC, but that doesn't mean the silicon wasn't improved at all. Although it stays in the dual-core realm, the A5X sports a new quad-core GPU, so the graphics performance of the new chip should be its main strong point. Actually, Apple claims that the A5X will be about 4 times faster than the Tegra 3. Too bad we can't compare them appropriately, as we can't have them both running with the same configurations. 4G LTE. Of course, for those who aren't blessed with LTE yet, the tablet will also be equipped with global HSPA+ support, so you should get fast 4G (HSPA+ style) speeds pretty much everywhere such a network is available. The camera has been vastly upgraded in the new iPad. Now, the device features a 5MP shooter with pretty much the same setting as on the iPhone 4S - it has a 5-element lens, back-illuminated sensor, etc. And we already know that this technology produces some very good-looking images. Plus, the iPad 3 will now be capable of recording 1080p video, with all the additional goodies such as image stabilization and noise reduction. Apple didn't make a big deal of it, but the new iPad also comes with Bluetooth 4.0, up from 2.1 that we had in the previous iPad. Although this doesn't really mean much today, it sure will tomorrow, when Bluetooth 4.0-capable devices start to emerge. Among the most important improvements in the Bluetooth technology with this 4th iteration is its new low-energy protocol, which will make it suitable for use in a number of other types of gadgets, like heart-rate straps, pedometers and wrist-watches.

  5. Today I came across an article on cnet.com titled 'Why Apple is winning?' The article praises Apple as if there is nothing beyond that. It also highlighted short comings of Windows, Windows Phone, Metro UI and Adnroid. This is the same author, who few months ago, was all praise for Android against Windows Phone. To me, it seemed more of a PR work from Apple. Now coming to the topic, lets discuss really Apple is that great. Since the launch of iPod to iPad, most of us have used one or the other product of Apple and mostly 'iProduct'. What are your feelings? Ease of use Ease of data sharing and syncing with other devices (PC/net etc) User interface liking Simplicity cost of ownership I had used Mac about 10 years ago and after that never really get a chance. That time, I was coming from Windows 98 and found it to be good enough and learning curve was low. During that time I was using both Windows and Apple. Recently, about 3 months ago, I again got a chance to use Macbook Pro. I used for 2-3 days and then found there are lot many things to learn. On PC, I can work with closed eyed but not with Mac. May be its new environment and never used. But I also found that Mac limits the access to various settings. though they were not that essential and for most users, those settings never make sense. My nephew also has iPod (2nd gen) and I always make fun of him due to limitation like non sharing of files and need iTunes. Further, upgrading itunes is also headache. Download ~85 mb and then install it. Any problem in syncing htrough iTunes, be assured to loss your data. Even one of my friends had same problem. She lost all her pictures and never got it back. After that she never touched her iPod. I've seen those who used Apple products, they simply feel windows is useless. But I beg to differ. Many are so much engrossed with Apple that they feel uncomfortable with other products. I also fail to understand why Macbook Pro is more expensive than a laptop of similar configuration. They use same Intel processor and what differ is OS. I always argue in favor of windows because its easy, cost and getting help is always easy. while for mac, you have to visit service centre. Many argue that you do not need any help for Mac. THey do not have virus problem, they work out of the box with other products like wi-fi netowrk etc.(also mentioned the same in cnet article). But then today's PC industry is because of Windows and not Mac. If there was no Windows, there would not have been Dell, Acer, Lenovo etc. even our Rimweb would not been there. There are many developers developing windows app, thanx to VB. There is entire PC based eco system for development tools to user software. we have wide range of hardware that we can select and similarly for software. The main idea for this topic, bloody Apple has $90 Billion in cash and stock prices are up by $100 in a month. Its profit is sky rocketing. A company is in consumer product but not FMCG and still so much of cash. Definitely there is something about the prodcuts. Either we hate it or love, Recession or boom, Apple don't give sh**t about it. It has mastered the art of marketing and creating hype for its products. I want it, you want it, everybody wants it.
  6. (Source: slashdot/zdnet) It seems RIM, Nokia & Apple have already provided back doors to Indian Military Intelligence for snooping on smartphones and MI has even managed to snoop on various US Govt communications from their Indian Embassy and other representative offices etc. I am forgetting the name of one of our RIMWEB members who was really really pro govt having power to tap RIM BBES etc without court orders, and i guess he would be really happy to hear this !! Though its really bad for privacy and citizen's rights and opens up only innocent people to misuse of govt powers, it does make me feel a little happy that at least our MI has some competence to snoop on Uncle Sam. On the other hand, there's a pdf "posted on the Net" showing the scanned memo about this from MI which really shows our security in a bad light - overseas hackers are able to get their hands on confidential GOI documents. Thankfully some portions are redacted. From: http://apple.slashdo...-to-governments Voline writes"In a tweet early this morning, cybersecurity researcher Christopher Soghoian pointed to an internal memo of India's Military Intelligence that has been liberated by hackers and posted on the Net. The memo suggests that, "in exchange for the Indian market presence" mobile device manufacturers, including RIM, Nokia, and Apple (collectively defined in the document as "RINOA") have agreed to provide backdoor access on their devices. The Indian government then "utilized backdoors provided by RINOA" to intercept internal emails of the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission, a U.S. government body with a mandate to monitor, investigate and report to Congress on 'the national security implications of the bilateral trade and economic relationship' between the U.S. and China. Manan Kakkar, an Indian blogger for ZDNet, has also picked up the story and writes that it may be the fruits of an earlier hack of Symantec. If Apple is providing governments with a backdoor to iOS, can we assume that they have also done so with Mac OS X?"
  7. Google’s Response To Siri is Codenamed Majel, Could Be Released Partly By End of Year Source Taylor Wimberly. I wrote about Google’s response to Apple’s Siri voice assistant several months ago and over the last couple weeks I received further details about the secret project. For starters it is codenamed Majel, which comes from Majel Barrett-Roddenberry, better known as the voice of the Federation Computer from Star Trek. Majel is an evolution of Google’s Voice Actions that is currently available on most Android phones with the addition of natural language processing. Where Voice Actions required you to issue specific commands like “send text to…” or “navigate to…”, Majel will allow you to perform actions in your natural language similar to how Siri functions. Speaking of actions, it sounds like only Google search queries will be included with the initial release, that could come as soon as this year. I say this year because I’ve heard that engineers at Google X are working around the clock on finishing the first release and the NYTimes previously reported that one product would be released by Google X this year. December if nearly half over, so a January or February release might be more realistic. Other more advanced features like controlling phone actions and applications with natural language commands are expected to come later. Google’s Matias Duarte had previously given hints about the future of Android’s voice actions in an interview with Slashgear. Matias said, “Our approach is more like Star Trek, right, starship Enterprise; every piece of computing surface, everything is voice-aware. It’s not that there’s a personality, it doesn’t have a name, it’s just Computer.” I had previously speculated that Google’s approach might actually include some kind of animated avatar, but it appears I was way off on that one. However, we still expect greatly enhanced computer voices that sound more human and fluid, thanks to Google’s acquisition of Phonetic Arts, which occurred at the tail end of 2010. Hopefully more concrete details will leak out soon. People smarter than I will read this article and I’m sure they will be able to dig up additional iformation. In the mean time, enjoy Data talking with Computer in the video below.
