朋友還在用滑蓋式的鍵盤手機,想當年一支要價不斐,位居9999頂級手機之列,然而今天在眾人面前拿出來用,還會覺得蠻丟臉的。是的,主流手機的面貌已經改變:上一代手機拼的是硬體功能,要愈多愈好;這一代手機比的是軟體功能以及操作介面,螢幕大不用說,更重要的要有多點觸控介面,而且要能下載多樣的應用軟體...

This Is How iOS 4.1 HDR Photos Look In Reality

This Is How iOS 4.1 HDR Photos Look In Reality

Apple's iOS 4.1 will give us the ability to take HDR photos with our iPhone devices, but how will those photos look? We spent some time with the iOS 4.1 Gold Master and found out.

The idea behind HDR photos is that they look more similar to what our eyes see than regular photos. In many cases this leads to particularly bright and vibrant photos, but in the case of the iPhone 4 and iOS 4.1's HDR feature it didn't always seem that way.

While we've only played around with the feature for a while, we noticed that it seems to favor—or even privilege—highlights. This makes some of the HDR photos seem washed out next to their non-HDR counterparts while making the colors look more natural. It also means that the iPhone 4's tricky white balance troubles are practically an issue of the past.

 

 

It's worth nothing however, that the HDR feature does seem to struggle a bit in case of environments with low level lighting or situations where there isn't a dynamic range to exploit. My bathroom appears to cause one of those situations because my poor rubber duckies confused the HDR feature and resulted in a funky, messed up image despite the iPhone being held perfectly still during the photo:

That little quirk aside, the HDR feature seems to lead to far more natural looking photos in general. But since it's not always easy to predict when this will be the case, I recommend toggling the photo settings to save both the HDR version of a photo as well as the normally exposed version.

人眼的受光範圍與自然界的發光範圍.及CCD與CMOS或傳統銀鹽軟片(FILM)的曝光寬容度不同,或許HDR是要修正影像反差與顏色使人眼視覺實體經驗相當吧?!

What Are HDR Photos?

What Are HDR Photos?

The most surprising nugget Apple's including in iOS 4.1 is the ability to take HDR photos. You've seen plenty of these before—photographs with vibrant, unreal colors—but what are they exactly?

They're photos...

You know, photographs. The HDR stands for "high dynamic range"—the range between the lightest and darkest areas of the image—and the idea is that they look more similar to what your eyeball sees than regular photographs.

...made of several photos...

HDR images are achieved by blending several photos with different exposures—usually at least over-exposed and one under-exposed—to make for a more dynamic scene. Jobs suggested that the iPhone and iPod Touch would be shooting real HDR photos, that is, a combination of a few shots snapped in rapid succession, as opposed to just some software approximation of HDR.

...that look kinda unreal but pretty awesome.

HDR photos have long been maligned as a gimmick, creating over-saturated circus shots. But on a smartphone they kinda make sense—tons of people use apps like Hipstamatic and Camera+ to jazz up their photos, and built-in HDR is bound to give iPhone shots a bit of extra punch.

Future Apple Gadgets Getting AirPlay Wireless Music and Video Streaming With iOS 4.2

Future Apple Gadgets Getting AirPlay Wireless Music and Video Streaming With iOS 4.2iPad with iOS 4.2 is almost everything we've wanted in the iPad since getting an iPhone 4, plus something we've wanted from the beginning: streaming music and video from iTunes to iOS devices with AirPlay. It's coming out in November.

AirTunes has been remade into AirPlay, which now streams more than music over iTunes—it streams video, photos and music from iTunes to devices, or from say, an iPhone to an Apple TV. The other new wireless power is wireless printing, which Steve demoed from Pages.

On the iPad, multitasking looks and works just like iOS 4 on the iPhone 4 and 3GS.

The only bad part? It's not coming out until November—for iPads, iPhones and iPod touches—which means our iPads are going to keep feeling like fossils until then.

Sony announces cloud-based music service V.S. Apple Music Services

Music Unlimited will let people select from a variety of genres.

BERLIN--Sony announced a new service Monday called Music Unlimited that will turn many of its electronics products into online libraries for streaming music.

"It is a cloud-based digital music streaming service that gives music lovers access to millions of tracks stored and synced with your devices," said Fujio Nishida, president of Sony Europe, at a press event here. The service "will be going live by the end of the year," he said.

Music Unlimited joins the already available video-on-demand service of Sony's Qriocity service, which now sports a two-part tagline: "Music that follows you. Instant blockbuster movies."

Sony announced Music Unlimited at the IFA electronics show here. The timing, though, illustrates just how hard it will be for Sony to fulfill its ambitions: on the same day, Apple refreshed its dominant iPod and iTunes product line that has thwarted Sony's music ambitions for years. This isn't the first time it's tried, either: Sony closed down its Connect music store, after years of effort.

Sony's service is very different from Connect and from Apple's approach, though. With iPods and iTunes, customers buy music online or copy it from CDs and store it on their iPods, iPhones, iPads, and in their iTunes libraries. And of course, it includes video as well.

It's a device-centric approach so far, Apple's LaLa acquisition notwithstanding, and it's proved successful: Through it, 12 billion songs, 450 million TV shows, 100 million movies, and 35 million books have been downloaded so far, Apple said Wednesday.

With Sony's Qriocity services, though, the music and video lives in the cloud, a dramatically different model.

With it, the music is sent over the network to a variety of devices: Sony's TVs, Blu-ray players, PS3 game consoles, and Windows PCs.

What about portable media players to answer the iPod? "It will increasingly become available on range of portable devices of the future," Nishida said.

Streaming audio over the Net is fine for broadband connections, but portable devices don't always have them, and when they do, data subscription plans can impose limits. However, mobile devices will be able to cache data on their own storage systems, said Chris Thielbar, manager of product planning for Sony's network services.

Some details are unclear still, including pricing and the range of music that'll be available. Sony still is negotiating with labels, Thielbar said.

Nishida promised a "huge libarary of music tracks in the cloud," though. In addition, Qriocity "will become a platform for a wide range of third-party service providers who can make the entertainment experience compelling and entertaining," he said.

In demonstrations of the service at the press event, a remote control could be used to select music, including selecting various genres such as classical and alternative; eras divided by decade; "premium" content; and music delivered by Sony's SenseMe technology to pick music based on a person's mood.

Users will be able to "discover music through channels personalized to their tastes," he added. "There's no need to manage music files. Music Unlimited powered by Qriocity will change the way we all enjoy our music."

Sony Walkman outsells the iPod in Japan

September 2, 2010

Should Sony celebrate now? Should Apple worry? Maybe not yet but soon. You see, the iPod has been selling like pancakes all over the world for years but not this time and in Japan. Sony has finally outsold Apple with their Walkman against the iPod.

According to research firm BCN, Sony is the no. 1 in the PMP category last August. It was the first time since the group started their sales surveys.

Last August, Sony Walkman had a 47.8 percent share against the 44 percent of the iPod.

Will this change now that new iPod models have been revealed yesterday?

新的iPod touch拆解照曝光
來自:weiphone
 
緊隨四代的iPod touch的發布,負責電子產品驗證的美國聯邦通訊委員會(FCC)的已將蘋果為該產品提交的申請材料對外公佈。申請圖片顯示,iPod的觸控擁有一根完全內置的天線,背殼部分不再使用黑色塑料材質。同時從圖中可見,天線部分被絕緣層所包裹以減少干擾由於沒有跡象表明金屬背殼將用於訊號接收,干擾可能主要來自機身內部。

這組機身內部圖片為公眾提供了搶先洞察新的iPod所用組件的途徑,但由於缺少專家鑑定,部分組件難以辨識。除了一眼可認出的a4的處理器外,我們還看到了海力士提供的內存以及附屬的一顆“蘋果”晶片。這顆未知定制晶片或許充當南橋的角色,提供數據連接或音訊等功能。

電池方面,尺寸似乎與現售的iPod相當或略大,但厚度更薄。

更多的詳細信息需等下週 iFixit等網站收到新機型並進行拆解後才能獲知。新的iPod中許多零件應系直接借自iPhone 4,例如512內存,802.11n標準的Wi - Fi以及前置攝像頭。

Win版iPhoDroid一鍵安裝Android到iPhone
來自:weiphone
 

開發者塞爾吉奧 Mcfly果然很守信用,他如約推出了視窗版的iPhoDroid,可讓 iPhone 3G的用戶一鍵安裝Android到iPhone。

他首先非常感謝大家耐心等待這款軟體的發布。之所以到現在才發布是因為他希望能盡量做到最好,特別是Windows 7的(64位)系統很難接受未授權的DLL中。

不過現在他找到了安全的方法來運行 iPhoDroid。那就是現在發布的視窗版iPhoDroid,無需安裝,輕鬆一鍵就能將Android系統安裝到iPhone上。視窗版的iPhoDroid如今已支援XP的和遠景(i386硬件和x64)的系統,目前iPhoDroid暫不支持3G版iPhone和iPhone 4。
