Posted by in Android, OS and Apps, Personal Computing

Ever wished an Android-based PC working environment, complete with taskbars and resizable windows, to use for home media or productivity?

It’s said to compatible with any keyboard and mouse, and has features never seen on most Android iterations such as a dedicated file manager and taskbar, and support for resizable windows which may be akin to Microsoft’s own Windows operating system. There will be two versions: a 1GB RAM model with 8GB of internal storage, and a higher 2GB RAM variant with 16GB of storage onboard. Remix Mini specs 1.2GHz 64-bit Quad-core Allwinner chip 1GB RAM / 2GB RAM 8GB internal storage / 16GB internal storage expandable via microSD card slot 2x USB 2.0 ports, Ethernet port, HDMI port, Audio mini-jack WiFi  802.11b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0 Remix OS (based on Android 5 Lollipop) The Remix Mini is up on Kickstarter with early bird prices of $20 and $30 for the 1GB and 2GB RAM models, respectively, which will return to original prices of $30 and $40 once the product is out in the market. Most of the earlybird perks have now been sold out, but higher-tier support prices are still available. You may view the kickstarter page here.

Hands-on with the Intel Compute Stick

May 06, 15 Hands-on with the Intel Compute Stick

Posted by in Personal Computing

Do you know how much power you can have at the size of your hand? That’s what we felt when ee were able to attend Intel’s event in Makati last Tuesday wherein they unveiled the new 5th generation Core processors and X SoFIA chips for mobile devices. Among those launched at the press conference is the Intel Compute Stick, touted to have a generally decent performance in a small package at a very affordable price. The Compute Stick turns any HDMI-enabled device into a fully-functional computer. It also has several ports you can use to further enhance your portable computer experience, and it can be powered by a DC wall charger or even a power bank. Bearing a glossy finish, it’s lightweight and compact enough to be stored in your bag or front pocket of your jeans, and can be brought just about anywhere. It has a ton of ports located on both of its sides such as a USB port to connect peripherals and a micro SD card slot for additional storage, and connectivity options likeWi-Fi and Bluetooth for connectivity. Its performance is something that should not be underestimated as well. Bearing an Atom chip, it can handle most lightweight to moderate tasks. In fact, all the presentation material held at the event were powered by the stick, and was only revealed during its demo. Two versions will be available: a Ubuntu Linux model sporting 1GB of RAM, and a Windows 8.1 version with 2GB RAM. Intel Compute Stick specs  STCK1A32WFC STCK1A8LFC Operating System Windows 8.1 with Bing 32-bit Ubuntu 14.04 LTS 64-bit System Memory 2 GB soldered, single channel, DDR3L memory 1.35V, 1333 MHz 1 GB soldered, single channel, DDR3L memory 1.35V, 1333 MHz Flash Storage 32 GB eMMC storage soldered down Micro SDXC v3.0 slot with UHS I-Support 8 GB eMMC storage soldered down Micro SDXC v3.0 slot with UHS I-Support Processor Intel® Atom™ Processor Z3735F Supports Intel® Virtualization Technology (Intel® VT-x) Intel® Atom™ Processor Z3735F Supports Intel® Virtualization Technology (Intel® VT-x) Graphics Intel® HD...

Hello Microsoft Edge, Windows 10’s new browser

May 01, 15 Hello Microsoft Edge, Windows 10’s new browser

Posted by in Personal Computing, Software

Say hello to Microsoft Edge, the Redmond giant’s new moniker for the Project Spartan flagship browser in the Windows 10 operating system. Sporting a basic and minimalist interface, Edge has support for Microsoft’s own Cortana digital assistant, giving intelligent suggestions whenever needed. It also has a digital annotation function for easy note-taking whether you’re using a pen and touch input or a mouse and pen, and a built-in reading list for easier web viewing. Edge also has the ability to support browser extensions from both Chrome and Firefox, making it one of the most decorated browsers right before it hits consumer shelves. It’s still unclear on how it would work as of this writing, and we hope Microsoft would shed light on it soon. The new name isn’t surprising, since Microsoft already mentioned that the new browser runs on an updated fork of Internet Explorer’s rendering engine called EdgeHTML. Edge is slated to be Windows 10’s default browser, as already seen in its early builds. So, what happens to Internet Explorer? It may not be included in the Redmond Giant’s new operating system for consumers, but rather be part of the software that will be given out to Business and Enterprise customers.   Related posts: Microsoft Windows 10: What to expect, Technical Preview and Windows Insider Program You can now use reworked Android and iOS apps on Windows 10 Continuum turns your Windows Phones into...

Continuum turns your Windows Phones into PCs

Apr 30, 15 Continuum turns your Windows Phones into PCs

Posted by in OS and Apps, Personal Computing, Software

Microsoft’s Keynote speech in this year’s Build Conference has a ton of great announcements, and the Continuum feature for Phones might be changing the way you use your mobile devices. The Continuum feature will enable a user to use his phone in another way unimaginable: as a near-standalone PC experience. Once hooked up to a monitor and connected to a bluetooth keyboard and mouse, users can work on Sure, it’s not the full OS that will be present, but key elements will be present such as the nearly-identical taskbar, a task switcher, and Microsoft’s array of Universal apps present on your device will work as their full-sized desktop versions. “What we’re trying to show here today, is our unique vision for phones and enabling them to scale up to a full PC-like experience,” said Joe Belfiore. While it’s just a simulation that’s been presented at today’s keynote, Microsoft still hasn’t given any concrete roadmaps on availability on Windows 10 for mobile builds aside from the fact that it needs new hardware to fully function well, and they plan to share more of that feature soon.   Related posts: You can now use reworked Android and iOS apps on Windows 10 Windows 7 Philippine Pricing Cool, new features of Microsoft Office 2010 Windows 8 Upgrade only $14.99 for new PC owners Microsoft Windows 10: What to expect, Technical Preview and Windows Insider Program Smart, Talk ‘N Text and Sun brings FREE Internet to the masses via Internet.org app by...

You can now use reworked Android and iOS apps on Windows 10

We will be able to enjoy using Candy Crush Saga and Dubsmash on Windows soon! A game-changing announcement from Microsoft from their keynote speech at the Build Conference today includes four new options for developers to add content into the Windows Universal Store, including importing Android and iOS apps straight-up without much code editing. This means that iOS and Android app developers can pretty much port their apps directly by allowing the use of Java, C++, and Objective C software to run on the newest OS. The idea is pretty much simple: to get as many apps as possible to hop onto the Redmond Giant’s new platform, compatibility issues notwithstanding, by recompiling it through Visual Basic, replacing the APIs with Microsoft’s, and launching it onto the Windows Store. Aside from allowing Java/C++ and Objective C, the Redmond Giant has also allowed compiling web-based apps and those that are based from .NET and Win32 to be available on the Store. .NET and Windows 32 apps will have a dedicated section for them, and will be available starting with the launch of Adobe Photoshop Essentials on the Windows Store. “With Apple you choose to invest in iOS and OS X. With Google it’s Android or Chrome OS. Windows is the only platform that lets you bring apps to all these devices efficiently,” said Terry Myerson. New updates seen at the conference highlights phone apps running on desktop, as well as seamless integration of Universal apps from desktop to mobile and XBox. In two to three years, Microsoft expects that the incentives it had laid out in previous keynote speeches will pave way to dissolving fragmentation issues and create an estimated 1 Billion devices running on the Windows 10.
