iOS 7 May Be Present with Further Integration into LinkedIn

A recent report reveals that iOS 7 might come with further integration with LinkedIn like integration with Facebook and Twitter that are already present on iOS 6.

9to5Mac reports, the source code in iOS 7 beta for developers contains references to the LinkedIn single sign-on system similar to those used for Twitter and Facebook. With integration into LinkedIn, users only need to log in to the service once, and they will be able to share content directly to the service from either Safari or other applications (such as camera roll).

The further integration of iOS 7 with LinkedIn might become apparent considering this service gets the same treatment on OS X Mavericks. LinkedIn will be one of the “share sheets” on OS X 10.9, allowing users to share content from the Safari browser and other Apple applications such as Photo Booth.

According to the developer who initially found the code reference, some of the code needed to complete the integration is still missing. This makes us ask, why is it not present in the iOS 7 beta for developers. That could mean Apple is still finishing its finishing or hasn’t reached an agreement with LinkedIn to integrate the business-oriented social networking service.

WhatsApp instant messaging service now has more than 250 million active monthly users. This achievement was revealed by WhatsApp to The Wall Street Journal.

With a monthly active number of users reaching 250 million, putting WhatsApp in the same position as services such as LinkedIn, which has more than 225 million users, and Twitter, which passed 200 million active users last December – although there are likely more accounts which is not active too.

WhatsApp, launched in 2009, is an instant messaging application that allows users to send messages for free from all major smartphone platforms. Earlier this month, WhatsApp revealed that it had reached a new daily record in terms of the number of messages sent via WhatsApp. This was revealed by WhatsApp through his official Twitter account.

Google and Facebook are both rumored to have considered acquiring this startup with a value of around $ 1 billion, but WhatsApp’s CEO firmly denied the rumors.


Android 4.3 Leaks Present For Samsung Galaxy S4

The latest iteration of the Android OS, Android 4.3 has leaked and looks already there for the public, after previously seen running on the Samsung Galaxy S4 Google Edition. The latest Android OS is still not officially confirmed by Google itself but here it is still referred to as Jelly Bean, has been leaked to SamMobile, where it is described as functioning well without any significant obstacles.

Android 4.3 is available for the regular Samsung Galaxy S4 (GT-I9505), not the GT-I9505G variant and Google is selling directly to consumers starting this week. According to SamMobile – which has previously shared screenshots of Android 4.3 running on Google Edition – ROM has completely changed from how the source they provide, does not require modifications to work and is available on more common variants.

Of course, installing an unofficial ROM – even believed not to come from Google itself – will create and pose several dangers. The biggest problem is using an unofficial ROM will void your warranty.

Hashtags Present on Facebook’s Mobile Web

After launching the hashtag feature (#) or what we are familiar with hashtags to the desktop version of Facebook, Facebook now also has a hashtag feature to Facebook users from a Mobile device. So from now on, Facebook users who access Facebook from mobile devices can also experience the hashtag feature and search for a specific topic using that feature.

Although the Facebook hashtag feature is present in the mobile web version of Facebook, the hashtag feature is not yet present in the native Facebook application for iOS and Android. Of course, this is not a big problem, we just need to wait for the time until Facebook presents the latest application updates that might bring the hashtag feature for iOS and Android applications. Apparently, Facebook is slow enough to present the hashtag feature to both of these mobile platforms.

Facebook also launched a related hashtag feature, a feature that allows users to view search results pages with all other related hashtags and post them at the same time. Previously, users could only search for hashtags from the search bar or click on hashtags from other services (like Facebook’s Instagram).

Twitter is a social media service that has been a pioneer of the hashtag feature, and since then many other online services have adopted the same sign, because why not? Twitter’s biggest competitor, however, is slowly coming in to use it too. Instagram has hashtag support since it was first released, and other services like Google+ and Flickr also have hashtag or hashtag features.

The hashtag or hashtag feature for the Facebook mobile web is coming in stages. When we opened Facebook, we already saw the feature and could use it. But there are some other friends who still haven’t seen the feature. Has a Geek friend seen this feature when a Geek friend accesses the Facebook mobile web? If so, let’s share what Geek’s friends think about the hashtag feature on this Facebook mobile web. Share with us via the comment form below this post.

IPhone Plastic Body Appears in China

After some time there have been a lot of rumors about the cheap version of the iPhone, today we have information that in China a body or plastic case appears to be the body of a cheap version of the iPhone. What appears in the photo of the iPhone’s plastic body leak seems to reinforce rumors that say that the latest iPhone iteration will come at a low price and comes with a colorful body.

This leaked part of the iPhone first appeared from a post on Weibo by someone known as 7mob who had a connection to one of the workers from a factory based in China. In this case, the person who posted claimed he had a “friend” who worked at Foxconn, one of the biggest manufacturing lines that assembled and produced Apple devices in recent years.

This device appears with a single LED flash hole to the right of the lens hole (both circular), with a microphone hole between the two. A black Apple logo is located in a standard location in the middle and the top of the device, while the normal “iPhone” brand name is located in the same location at the bottom.

The green color of the body that appears in the photo also requires that the color is one of six color choices for the device. The news says other colors are yellow, blue, pink, white – and we will no longer see a black iPhone here. It is possible to differentiate between this low-cost model and the high-end version of the iPhone 5. However, we are not sure, whether the leaked plastic body from the iPhone is really like the iPhone device that will actually be released by Apple. So far there has been no confirmation about this from the related company.

Cheaper iPhone versions will appear more colorful

Tim Cook’s statement at the time of the release of the iPhone 5 some time ago that said that did not rule out the possibility that Apple will release a cheap version of the iPhone immediately triggered the emergence of many rumors about the iPhone “lite”.

Of course it won’t be the same as the iPhone with the “lite” iPhone, the difference between the processor and packaging. Rumor has it that the iPhone “Lite” uses plastic material. Not Apple if it’s not full of innovation, the iPhone “lite” will present more colorful, even Apple plans to offer 4 colors namely yellow, red, green and blue.

Another rumor says that the specifications of the iPhone “Lite” will use the specifications of the iPhone 5. Of course, this is very interesting because in Indonesia alone, the price of the iPhone is still difficult to reach for the middle class.

For when Apple will release a cheap version of the iPhone itself is still not certain, but certainly not this year.

Focus On Yahoo Search, Yahoo Close Altavista Search Engine Starting Next Week

Before the emergence of popular search engines that we often use today, such as Google, Bing, and Yahoo, there is a search engine that is quite popular, namely Altavista. Launched in 1995. Altavista became a very popular search engine, but shortly when Google was launched and other large companies followed Google’s steps by creating their own search engine, AltaVista quickly began to collapse. And the latest news, Yahoo (which has AltaVista) will turn off the classic search engine on 8 July.

Yahoo said that they closed AltaVista to “sharpen” their focus on new products, and the company asked AltaVista users (if they still exist) to start using Yahoo Search, and the AltaVista URL would automatically redirect to Yahoo Search.

AltaVista was acquired by Yahoo in 2003 after becoming the exclusive provider of search results for Yahoo starting in 1996, and Altavista is a search engine that is far more advanced than the search engines that existed in the mid 90s when it was able to index more than 20 million at that time. website, thanks to the innovative “crawler” web technology. Of course, that’s not so revolutionary anymore, because most big search engines have quite a number of types of technology they use.

The closing of AltaVista is just one example of the various steps to close some of Yahoo’s recently announced services. Many users are disappointed over several other service closures that have occurred at the company. FoxyTunes and Yahoo RSS Alerts were closed yesterday, and Neighbors Beta, and Downloads Beta and Local API will also be closed later this month.

Garuda Indonesia Tests Inflight WiFi on Boeing 777-300ER

The news of the presence of WiFi features on airplanes actually has appeared since last year midterm. Several leading airlines in the world began to compete to bring internet access via WiFi (inflight WiFi) to their service users. They are competing to make the passengers comfortable traveling by airplane and can keep working and being connected to the internet while on the plane. United Airlines is one of the airlines that has implemented Inflight WiFi on several of their aircraft.

On Saturday (06/7) yesterday, one of the number one airlines in Indonesia, namely Garuda Indonesia, did a flight demo or joy flight with the sophisticated Boeing 777-300ER. Joy flight is done by flying a plane from Jakarta to Denpasar. Not only trying out the latest series of Boeing 777-300ER aircraft, the flight demo also tested Inflight WiFi for Garuda Indonesia’s fleet.

In the test flight, 8 people from the Communication and Information Team took part in testing and checking the Inflight WiFi feature on Garuda aircraft. The team is led directly by Gunarto, Head of the Sub Directorate of Postel Implementation of the Directorate of Standardization and Equipment of the Directorate General of SDPPI. In addition there were also representatives from the Ministry of Transportation and PT Telkom.

During the joy flight from Jakarta – Denpasar, the team conducted physical testing and checking of the device, measuring the signal to the access point and its cellular pico BTS on GSM 1800. All devices tested were functioning properly. At the time of testing, the use of WiFi on board did not cause interference, both interference with the cockpit communication channel and the use of other frequency channels.

Even though the results of the Inflight WiFi test on the Boeing 777-300ER are going well, it does not mean that the use of WiFi is also permitted on other types of aircraft owned by PT Garuda Indonesia, because to bring the Inflight WiFi feature on a fleet or other aircraft, comprehensive testing is still needed.

In the use of the Inflight WiFi feature, telecommunications services in the form of voice are not yet permitted, even when testing can have a telephone conversation. This entirely depends on the decision of the management of PT Garuda Indonesia. Wifi-based services that may be used include internet browsing, social networks, e-mail and instant messaging.

On Wednesday (10/7) local time, Facebook’s popular photo-sharing service has just presented the ability to Embed Photos and Videos. Now users can find the Embed button on the right side of public photos or videos. This embed button is only available on the desktop version of Instagram. The button provides a code that users can use to insert a collection of photos and videos on Instagram into other blogs and websites.

In posting the announcement of the presence of the ability to embed photos and videos, Instagram said that the photos and videos we embed will appear with an Instagram user name, number of photo likes and number of comments. And when other users click on the Instagram logo will bring these users to our profile page on where they can find more collections of photos and videos that we upload to Instagram.

Here it is Nokia Lumia 1020, Windows Phone with 41 MP Camera

Thursday morning local time, Nokia held a press conference in New York which the company called a way to “reinvent zoom” – find back Zoom – with the main star is the Nokia Lumia 1020. The news of the emergence of the latest Nokia Lumia series has actually begun to be intensively discussed by the media the past few weeks. There is still a lot of info and confusing news about this latest Lumia. And this morning, at the event everything became clear. Finally Nokia presents Nokia Lumia 1020, Nokia’s newest Windows Phone with a 41 megapixel resolution camera with the PureView label.

For specifications, it turns out there is no striking difference from the leaked specifications of the Nokia Lumia 1020 that circulated before the announcement with the specifications presented by the company. Nokia Lumia 1020 comes with a 4.5-inch AMOLED screen, 2 GB RAM, and 32 GB storage media. In addition to coming with a 41-megapixel main camera on the back, the Nokia Lumia 1020 also comes with a front camera with a wide lens.

The PureView camera on the Lumia 1020 also features a Xenon flash and F / 2.2 lens, alongside the latest Camera Pro application and OIS stabilization. The camera application will allow users to adjust white balance, ISO, focus, shutter speed, and other settings through a radial menu interface. We understand that the Nokia camera application is a pretty “heavy” feature, with the option to switch the aspect ratio of photos and the ability to activate the “dual shot” mode which takes pictures at different resolutions at the same time.

In the Nokia Lumia 1020 sales package, we will get a Camera Grip accessory, a body that has support for mounting a tripod and a two-stage camera button. Camera Grip is attached to the back of the Lumia 1020 which also has a USB port and battery. Nokia will also sell separately the wireless charging cover for the Lumia 1020 as an optional accessory on this particular model.

Then, what is the latest Windows Phone in Nokia? Until this article is published, we have not received an update on how much the price of the Nokia Windows Phone with this 41 megapixel resolution camera. We wait for the update information.
