Canonical founder Mark Shuttleworth, said that the work to put Ubuntu on phones and tablets should be done in time for the release of Ubuntu 14.04 in April 2014. In the announcement today, Shuttleworth said that the Ubuntu Phone OS had been designed from the ground up to offer a "crisper, sharper" experience on low-end phones.

He expects these low-end phones to drive adoption, much like Ubuntu's Linux-based cousin, Android. Ubuntu will have a "lean mode" which would run well on a device with an A9 ARM processor and 1GB RAM, and a "heavy mode" for high-end hardware. Shuttleworth says that Ubuntu will also target emerging markets by offering a "less complex" user experience than the competition.



In the demo showing off the phone (Watch it below), Shuttleworth showed how that "less complex" experience may look. For instance, an Ubuntu phone won't have a lock screen, but rather a "welcome screen" which will be personally tailored to you and the information you want. Ubuntu will also supposedly offer more screen space for apps than other platforms.






NFC (Near Field Communications) is not yet that popular between smartphone users but its included on all the current mobile devices and tablets in the market. There is no many Applications for the NFC use, but if you've ever dreamed of being able to use your smartphone to unlock or start your car with just a tap... just get a Smartphone with NFC cupport and wait till 2015.

We've already got cars like the Toyota Prius that doesn't need to have a key physically inserted into the car, it just uses RFID to know when the key is inside the car, and allows the car to start only then. But, the tap-and-go option of NFC could be a nice way to make it work as well.



The new Hyundai Connectivity Concept wants to give you that option. The trouble is that the Hyundai isn't planned for production until 2015. The concept car would also include an inductive charging pad like the Toyota Avalon that we saw recently.



Nasa 12 21 12 end of the world


The space agency said it has been flooded with calls and emails from people asking about the purported end of the world which, as the doomsday myth goes, is apparently set to take place on Dec. 21, 2012.

The myth might have originated with the Mayan calendar, but in the age of the Internet and social media, it proliferated online, raising questions and concerns among hundreds of people around the world who have turned to NASA for answers.

Dwayne Brown, an agency spokesman, said NASA typically receives about 90 calls or emails per week containing questions from people. In recent weeks, he said, that number has skyrocketed from 200 to 300 people are contacting NASA per day to ask about the end of the world. "Who's the first agency you would call?" he said. "You're going to call NASA."



The questions range from myth (Will a rogue planet crash into Earth? Is the sun going to explode? Will there be three days of darkness?) to the macabre (Brown said some people have "embraced it so much" they want to hurt themselves). So, he said, NASA decided to do "everything in our power" to set the facts straight.

That effort included interviews with scientists posted online and a web page Brown said has drawn more than 4.6 million views. It also involved a video titled "Why the World Didn't End Yesterday." Though the title of the video implies a Dec. 22 release date, Brown said NASA posted the four-minute clip last week to help spread its message.


Nvidia tagra 4

NVIDIA Tegra 3 Quad-core CPU was a very huge improvements to NVIDIA in the Mobile chips market with its 4-PLUS-1 Architecture that dedicate a low-powered core to handle the simple tasks or for stand-by in order to save the battery.

NVIDIA Tegra 4 will offer 72 dedicated graphics cores. All that silicon should deliver 6x time the raw performance currently offered by the Tegra 3, which has "only" 16 GPU cores at its disposal.


The new "Wayne" chip will be capable of handling screens of size up to 2560 by 1600 pixels and will have no troubles recording or decoding 1440p video. In addition, the slide mentions the support of a high-speed imaging chip, USB 3.0, and dual-channel DDR3 memory.
