The ultimate app for magazine lovers is ready for Android 2.2, 3.0 and 3.1. Get thousands of magazines instantly, many with special interactive features built especially for your Android device. Discover the premier mobile reading experience.
Zinio’s Android app, which has recently been unveiled for Honeycomb tablets, is no longer limited to select few markets. Rather, users from all around the world can now access and read various magazines from their phones and tablets.
On Friday Zinio added support for Google Android handsets, bringing content from more than 1,000 digital magazine publishers to smartphones and small tablets running Android versions 2.2 and 2.3, approximately 78 percent of all phones currently powered by Google.
The application requires that your device runs Android 2.2 or higher, meaning pretty much any smartphone or tablet bought this year will do the job just fine.
Although Zinio hasn’t mentioned this in their news release, I suspect more Android phones will come with the Zinio client pre-loaded. you may have noticed that Zinio was already on the phone, for example. Those types of pre-installation partnerships between Zinio and carriers are likely to help attract digital magazine readers, perhaps even more than having the free Zinio software available in the Android Market.
You can start to browse magazine content within a minute or two of starting a magazine download, but the optimal experience won’t happen until the entire title is downloaded. Until the magazine completely loads high-quality page images, it can show some text fuzziness when zooming in. And on the 3.7-inch, 800×480 resolution display of the new myTouch phone, there’s plenty of zooming required.
If you’re reading magazines on Zinio — and you already can with an Apple iPhone, iPod touch or iPad — I’d be curious what device you use most to do so: a tablet, a computer or a smartphone?
Apple Inc manufacturing a lower priced version of its hot –selling iPhone 4. According to the rumours in this iPhone 4 smaller 8 gigabyte flash drive used.
Apple done that because of the asian suppliers.
The flash drive for the 8GB iphone 4 is being manufactured by a Korean company, one of the people said on Tuesday,
Sources don’t mentioned the exact name of that Korean company because the information has not been made public.
Apple, which demands high levels of secrecy and security from suppliers and employees, declined to comment. Samsung also declined to comment.
The existing iPhone 4 was first launched in June 2010 with 16 GB and 32 GB versions, with a white version added to the lineup in April. The 8GB version is expected to launch within weeks, the sources said.
Some analysts said the cheaper 8GB iPhone 4 could help Apple boost sales in emerging markets.because apple iPhone are so costly so it’s not possible for an emerging markets to purchase apple’s item.
Apple may want to push into the emerging market segment where customers want to switch to low- to mid-end smartphones from high-end feature phones, which usually cost $150-200.
“But I think for an 8GB iPhone 4 the price is hard to go below $200, so Apple will still need a completely new phone with low specifications for the emerging markets.”
The new forthcoming iPhone 5 will be a blessing for technology having all in one features in one device such as multiple networks(supports CDMA as well as GSM),Assistive touch,icloud,voice control system.The Assistive touch is basically an overlay menu which is displayed in front of the user with commands that usually require certain physical actions, such as rotating the screen or shaking the device.

Once bill gates saw a video lecture and he called that 12 minute video lecture “the start of revolution”.
That lecture will now be linked with the material in some digital textbooks.
Etextbook maker Kno announced Monday that it will integrate thousands of tutorial videos from Khan Academy into its books.
Salman Khan, started creating videos in order to help his cousins with their math homework. Video production quality does not extend beyond the capabilities of Microsoft Paint.
Kno will be linking them to its books through a new “smart links” feature. When students click on a Khan Academy tutorial from a new tab on one of Kno’s digital pages, Khan’s explanation of that topic plays within the book.
Khan said that “We’re excited that Kno sees the value in our mission and has integrated our videos and study tools directly into their books,” .
Dozuki is a Japanese word which means a Saw used for very precise cuts.
iFixIt, which is basically known for providing Apple upgrade guides and supplies, is branching out into cloud services for hardware, appliance, and chemical manufacturers. The new project of iFixIt called “Dozuki”, is currently in beta and it aims to streamline the process of technical documentation by creating a Wiki-like environment for documentation.
The company has been testing their software with Make Magazine for the past year and they point to Autodesk’s acquisition of Instructables as an example of how ripe this environment is for disruption.
Dozuki has been used to create simple instructions for iFixIt customers and the plan is expand to companies like Ryobi and Home Depot. For example, a client can create a manual like this one for a RROD fix for the Xbox using a cloud-based server that supports multiple editors at once. An entire team can talk about each part of a device separately – think a folder of “how-tos” for major hardware items for woodworking and metalwork, for example – and offer helpful tips to customers in store or after purchase.
The site is in beta now and will launch this Fall. You can sign up for a beta account and the service will cost about $100 for small corporate clients and $499 for larger organizations.
