优秀科技

技术通常是不被它原本打算的方式所使用。手机上的短消息基本上是一个副产品,但现在大多数人觉得它是不可缺少的。意想不到后果的法律意味着消息可能是媒介,但技术以不可预知的方式作转移和改变。我们唯一可以肯定的,这是比以往任何时候都更快地移形。 目前技术无可争议的王者苹果公司,刚刚公布了创纪录的利润,其在iPhone和iPad的销量增长超过一倍以上,创造了2011年的净收入在第二季度为美元71.3亿,而营业额为286亿美元。 在这三个月中,苹果公司售出了超过2千万部的iPhone和925万台的iPad。苹果公司已经成功地生产具有吸引力的,期望的和相对实惠的小玩意,证明了其品牌的持久力量。 手机其实是盗用其他的工具,所有的手机都有一个摄像头,一个时钟和一个计算器。手表销售一落千丈。你想象的专业摄影师会随身携带一个摄像头,但事实并非如此。 辉桑山和巴拉兹嘎迪都是战争摄影师,使用iPhone及一个应用程序,称为Hipstamatic,拍摄了一系列在阿富汗的照片。该应用程序允许iPhone用户拍摄数码的“宝丽来”。这两个用它刻录了美海军陆战队的一个营队。 桑山说:“我们一开始没有去期望使用Hipstamatic。我们有几个不同的相机,镜头和录像机。”最后,他们决定使用这一技术,因为它复古的审美,二期因为iPhone“对于阿富汗南部来说是理想的,坚固的齿轮件。”凭借其简单的触摸屏,它不会象较大的相机一样吸灰,可以在沙漠很方便地使用。 这是嘎迪的第二个阿富汗的使命,他说道:“之前,我有过三个相机。只是使用iPhone让我更容易移动。“缺乏一个长镜头强迫他们去接近物体,导致在一系列亲密的阿富汗平民和美国军人的肖像们。 这两个被称为基地探查的新闻努力群,试图绕过主流媒体,并为现任海军陆战队员的朋友和家人提供了一个私人新闻源。桑山说:“iPhone是在每个人的口袋里,每个人都有这种无处不在的东西,它符合我们的想法去解秘新闻。” 他们还会再次使用iPhone吗? “不作为一个电话 - 它甚至从未有一个SIM卡,” 嘎迪说道。 “不过,我已经使用它作为我的主要相机。” 迈克尔塞勒是商业软件组微型策略的首席行政长官。在近日,在蒙特卡洛举行的社会化媒体营销和信息商务的首脑会议上,他说iPad是在平板电脑市场方面走向垄断。 三星,戴尔和HTC的内置片都使用谷歌为首的自动系统。塞勒说:“消费者正在重新定义智能手机和平板电脑市场。而自动联盟在说服消费者们有一个对iPhone的替代品方面,已取得了重大成就,在平板电脑市场,iPad是唯一的在大众市场的成功故事。” 塞勒说,除非获得了自动联盟牵引,“苹果公司将有一个垄断,就像Windows与电脑共享”他补充道:“平板电脑市场是一个发展中的不稳定状态。一旦你的企业应用ipad因素,有可能在市场上成为引爆点。” 他在首脑会议上,展示了许多新的软件平台品牌,其中包括一个新的基于云的服务,及Facebook网关。该平台位于Facebook的社交图表的顶部,使品牌直接向消费​​者提供客户关系管理的市场营销,销售,忠诚度和移动应用服务。 '云计算'是一个目前非常受欢迎的术语,被认为是信息科技及业务的未来。云计算实际上是一些趋势的总称,它们都涉及互联网和它的潜力,以简化我们使用电脑的方式和扩展他们的能力。 云是一个真正的互联网,云计算意味着把你的材料搬出来,在自己运行的电脑或服务器上少放一点。我们的想法是外包服务器和应用程序的维护负担,利用能够从任何有互联网接入的地方可以访问数据的好处。 一些规模较大的企业都希望用云计算利益,但不用承担任何把他们的数据泄露给第三方,而可能出现的风险。他们可以创建自己的云基础设施,与一个私有云。公共云是指像亚马逊,谷歌和salesforce.com,其共享的服务提供给所有供应商。混合云将利用公共和私人服务。 不过,有谨慎的理由。索尼公司最近承认黑客窃取了个人信息,可能是信用卡的详细信息,其在​​线游戏和娱乐网络的7700万用户。亚马逊遭受了它出租的巨大的服务器区域之一的故障。 这两起事件提出客户是否可以信任云计算的基本概念问题,你可以从因特网上购买计算服务,如从一个公用事业上消费煤气及水。公司和个人需要意识到过于依赖单一供应商的风险,消费者也应确保它们不会在多个联机系统上使用同一密码。 35%的美国人拥有自己的智能手机,有内置宽带的接入,这意味着我们访问互联网的方式是瞬息万变的。如果我们通过严格控制和监管网络访问来拜访互联网,这将使得巨头公司以自己的步伐促进创新,排斥新来事物。这恰恰违背了互联网的民主原则,其正在越来越多地被视作为一种商业工具。 人们,包括诺基亚,对智能手机的增长速度并未做好准备,而他们肯定是未来。 技术作家,直到最近,一直建议一个寻找智能手机的人,换一个iPhone。但苹果公司现在有一些适当的竞争,三星银河的S2,是iPhone 4的主要竞争对手。它设计美观大方,具有出色的界面,并提供不可用在其他地方的一些功能。 S2(大概700.英镑)有全高清的录像,一个4.3吋屏幕,极快的速度,是一个自动手机,有新的应用程序,如直接与WiFi连接,这意味着它可以连接到其他设备。如果你有一个三星电视,它将有作为一个遥控器的功能。 索尼爱立信的Xperia播放(约英镑270)已经推出到手机的PLAYSTATION游戏,摩托罗拉的DEFY(约.英镑230)是具有防水溅功能,其Atrix(约350英镑)可以插入到他自己的笔记本式码头。 LG的Optimus 3D(约650英镑)提供了无需佩戴眼镜的3D内容。宏达电的感觉(约英镑700)是该公司的旗舰自动设备和HD7(约.英镑420)运行Windows的电话,这会在今年晚些时候进行更新。最后,黑莓的火炬(约600英镑)采用了一个触摸屏和一个滑出式键盘。 但iPhone 4(约500英镑)依然称雄。这是一个美丽的设计,其巨大的应用程序商店,它提供了一个娱乐和功能的世界。苹果公司已经成功地做到了其产品的实用性和理想性,即将发布的icloud更新将意味着,比如,照片可以自动上传,并在​​您的苹果设备中共享。 (约500英镑)的iPad 2看起来很棒,你可以同步拥有一个iTunes帐户,基本上变成了一个巨大的iPod,但它太大了,不能成为一个方便的MP3播放器。如果你已经签署了每月手机合同,你可以在世界任何地方连接到互联网,但国外的漫游费将望而却步。这使得它像一个iPhone,但你不能发送短信,用它作为一个电话,你会看起来荒谬的。 作为一名记者,我想要购买一个单独的键盘,以充分利用它写文章;我需要购买所谓的页面,这将使我可以做一切在笔记本上做的一切,除了慢一些。所以,问题是,为什么不干脆买台笔记本电脑?此外,iPad不运行Flash播放器,所以从上千个网站的内容是不可用的。 从本质上讲,iPad 2的是一个超大的iPod和一个业绩不良的笔记本电脑,我想要一个。这是一个美丽的玩具,将继续销售及主导未来一段时间内的技术景观。 Nigel Phillips

Pressure mounted on George Osbourne last night not to push through the radical banking reforms that will be recommended by Sir John Vickers next month. The ICB has already suggested that the retail arms of British banks should be ring fenced from their other activities. Angela Knight, head of the British Bankers Association, said that the plans could derail the recovery of the banks and threaten the health of the economy. THE ITALIAN government back tracked on parts of its widely criticized austerity package yesterday, scrapping a tax on high earners and scaling back cuts to local authority funding. The government said ministers had reached unanimous decisions on the package which caused serious tension in the centre-right coalition. SHARES in two of Greece’s major lenders soared yesterday after they announced plans for a full scale merger that will create the region’s biggest bank by assets. Alpha Bank and EFG Eurobank saw their stock leap 26% and 29% respectively, with their rivals’ share prices also rising as…

The old and the restless.

Few employers will just come out and say ‘you’re too old' for a position, but there are plenty of other sneaky tactics they can adopt to put off older workers or pass them over for promotion. A survey on attitudes toward older workers was conducted by the Department of Health and Ageing and revealed that 44 per cent of younger workers felt that hiring them would increase costs while 66 per cent said it was unlikely they would increase know-how and experience. Not only was there little value given to their skills, but 35 per cent felt they would actually have a negative impact on the organisation’s image and 28 per cent said they would stifle creativity. These sorts of beliefs are impacting heavily on the employment prospects of older workers. The Australian Bureau of Statistics said that while 45-64 year olds might have lower unemployment rates than those in the labour force generally, unemployed people in this age group often have more difficulty in…

US GDP grew at a 1.1% annual pace in the second quarter, down from the 1.3% that the government estimated last month, according to the median of responses in a Bloomberg News survey of economists. UK unemployment claims climbed the most in more than two years in July and sales of clothing and household goods dropped, government reports showed this month. A leading Nobel economist has backed Labour's warnings that the UK is slashing spending too fast and risks tipping a fragile economy into another downward leg. "Britain has jumped on the band-wagon of fiscal tightening in a big way," said Professor Edmund Phelps from New York's Columbia University. Prime Minister David Cameron argues the plan has made Britain a haven from the debt crisis engulfing the euro region and that it’s also protecting its top credit rating after Standard & Poor’s downgraded the US this month. Critics say the cuts will prove self-defeating by hampering the growth required to narrow the deficit. GREECE’S central…
