Misguided Geek Tech Update
Quick rundown of the Tech news of the day:
- Reportedly Apple has pre-ordered 10 million units of its new iPad Mini
- What will the new Apple tablet look like you ask? From the same guy who brought us those fairly spot on iPhone 5 renderings, designer extrodinare Martin Hajek, now brings us the georges projections of what the new iPad Mini may indeed look like. That is some sexy tech.
- With the recent announcement of a new Nook and the new Fire HD’s, Google has released some updates to keep their flagship tablet Nexus 7 relevant. New features include an updated gesture search to make it compatible with the tablet, improving the user interface, boosting overall performance, and upgrading the contact search feature. The update is out NOW on the Google Play Store.
- From the “ohhh, thats sad” deparment comes Like-A-Hug jacket concept, where the jacket inflates a little bit, simulating a hug, whenever someone likes something you did on Facebook. In a time where so much of our social interaction happens online, is the idea of tech simulating interpersonal interaction so hard to fathom?
I know I keep making this excuse, but I cant re-state it enough, my life is INSANE right now, so sorry for the dearth in posts. I will try my best to keep up 3-4 a week, but the site will be a little slow for a while, but stick with me, I should be back up to normal in a few weeks.
