  • 16 MAI 2014 - Pira- 5nha Skylock Is the Bike Lock of the Future, and Its Awesome -Gizmodo Bike locks, while incredibly necessary, are way behind the times. Even the best of them will break under brute force, and then where are you? Bikeless and alone. The new Skylock, from ex-Boeing and Jawbone engineers, is about to leapfrog the competition and bring bike protection into the 21st century. It looks amazing. Skylock has Bluetooth 4.0 in it. Just like keyless unlock- ing systems youve seen on cars, you can do the same thing for you bike. Via Skylocks smartphone app, you can press a button to unlock the lock. Or set it up to have proximity detection, so as soon as you get right up next to it, it unlocks. If your phone dies, you can still unlock it via a combination (pattern) lock on the lock itself. In addition to being as strong as any U-lock on the market (or so it claims), Skylock has built-in acceler- ometers and Wi-Fi. It works like this: When you lock up your bike, you can connect the lock to a nearby Wi-Fi network. If someone starts messing with your bike, the accelerometers will detect it, and it will send a push notification to your phone via the app, so you can run out and thwart any evil-doers. You can adjust the sen- sitivity, too, so its not disturbed by a single, accidental jostle. Obviously, if there isnt a nearby network you can connect to youre out of luck (it works over Bluetooth, too, but youd have to be within 30 feet of it), but this is still an awesome feature.

  • 16 MAI 2014 - Pira- 9nha A Smartphone Turns These Fast Food Trays Into Tiny Soccer Fields -Gizmodo Decades ago McDonalds realized that food wasnt the only way to draw kids into its restaurants. Toys, playgrounds, and cartoon characters all help the cause, and now a Brazilian food chain called Giraffas has come up with a clever way to lure soccer fans into its restaurants, just in time for the 2014 FIFA World Cup. After downloading a free app, you can prop your smartphone up on its side on one end of the serving tray, allowing its front-facing camera to detect the soccer field graphics on the paper insert. Folded paper balls are torn off the edge of the placemat, and can actually be flicked at a virtual on-screen goalie, with the cameradetectingtheirmotionanddetermining whether a goal has been scored.

  • 16 MAI 2014 - Pira- 10nha BillGuard Launches Its Personal Finance App On Android And Adds Data Breach Alerts -TechCrunch Personal finance startup BillGuard has been working hard over the last several years to help its users to identify fraudulent charges on their credit and debit cards, and also to keep track of their spending on the web and on its iPhone app. Today its expanding its reach with the launch of an Android app, and also adding a new feature that will alert users when their cards have been affected by a Target-style data breach. The company, which was a Battlefield Finalist at TechCrunch Disrupt a few years ago, launched with the goal of alerting users to hidden fees that would appear on their bank or credit card statements. With the introduction of its iPhone app last year, it expanded to include so-called grey charges i.e., recurring fees that users might have agreed to but forgotten about. Last fall, it added tools to help its users track their spending and compare outflows in different categories on a month-over- month basis to give them a better idea of where their money is going.

  • 16 MAI 2014 - Pira- 11nha Never Forget a Photoshop Shortcut Again With This Interac- tive App - To use Photoshop like a pro, you need to know your keyboard shortcutsbut with so many to remember, you can easily feel more rookie than ever. This interactive app should help you out, by telling you in a jiffy which keys will help you get to work. Gizmodo Application Shortcut Mapper was created by Waldo Bronchart, and its an interactive web app designed to be a visual shortcuts explorer for popular applications. So far, it caters for Photoshop, Lightroom and Blender. The keyboard layout is shown as it would be when you open the program, telling you what keys will help you out. But it gets better: press another key, like Shift or Space, and the display changes to tell you what each key will now do. Its all color-coded, too, so you know which key brings about what change when youve chased down a particular keyboard rabbit hole. Lire le reste de larticle --> ici
  • 16 MAI 2014 - Pira- 12nha Foursquares Swarm And The Rise Of The Invisible App - Swarm is a new app from Foursquare out today that chisels off the check-in and proximity features of the main app and places them in a sparse, focus-driven new home. The app is nicely done, though it will be of most use to those in dense urban areas with lots of friends. TechCrunch The underlying mechanics of Swarm are whats really interesting here and more importantly what it says about the next generation of apps youll be using on your smartphone. Theresafundamentalshiftinthewaythatweuseappsunderway, and the symptoms are all over the map. From a deeper, more thoughtful approach to push notifications to the breaking apart of large, unwieldy apps into smaller more focused components. The shift were seeing will be the third strata of user interaction since the iPhone popularized the mobile app in a major way. The initial offerings for the iPhone and then Android devices adhered fairly closely to the information appliance model. Using software, you transformed your phone into a mostly mono- purpose device just like it said on the tin. Now its a phone. Now its a calculator. Now its a messaging tool.

  • 16 MAI 2014 - Pira- 13nha Tapsule Lets You Create Time Capsules Of Photos, Video And Text On Your iPhone - A new mobile application called Tapsule, launching today, combines group messaging with photo and video-sharing. TechCrunch The concept is not that dissimilar from a number of other photo- sharing apps on the market, like Albumatic, Eversnap, Cluster, Bonfyre, and those dedicated to collecting photos and other media from big events, like parties or weddings, for example. However, in Tapsules case, the idea is less about organizing photos into albums, and more about creating what founder Jeff Jackel describes as collaborative media, where a group of friends comes together to create stories which others can find and follow through Tapsule, or by viewing the posts as theyre shared more broadly across social media platforms, like Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn. Ive always had a firm belief that, when anyone sees a piece of social content, what they really care about is the story behind it. Finding that story requires the ability to go deeper, says Jackel.

  • 16 MAI 2014 - Pira- 15nha Team Collaboration And Closing Efficiency Gaps In Responsive Design -Smashing Magazine Responsive design ushers in complexities that require a more involved design and implementation process. Because of this, the effort has piled up on the front end. Working in silos, where you talk to each other only occasionally or during scheduled meetings, has too many unknowns. Lets look at how these new challenges create opportunities to work together better. We have to kill the mentality that there is an assembly line of workers waiting for it to be their turn, and instead embrace more focused collaboration across the projects entire team. Four or five years ago, before responsive design was a thing, I was asked to make a comprehensive checklist that our team could follow when building any website. Inevitably, an unexpected task or two would come up, along with a tightrope of a deadline, and we never looked at that checklist during the build. These days, the thought of making a step- by-step checklist for a responsive design build sounds like a cruel joke. Ive been on a small team building a large media website over the last year. It did not take long after the project kicked off to realize that our design teams best work is done in tandem. Wed solve small problems, create momentum and then solve bigger problems.

  • 16 MAI 2014 - Pira- 16nha Let It Go: Say Farewell To These 5 Web Design Trends -Forbes Tech Trends come and go, especially in the fast-paced world of web design. Yet sometimes we hold onto old trends for too long when we should really be letting go and moving on. As technology evolves, its easy to fall into the trap of repeating old patterns. The web design industry is constantly moving forward. Holding on to old trends can only weigh you down, putting you behind the competition. Here are five design trends its time to bid adieu and the new design elements taking their place: Goodbye: Mobile Versions of Websites Instead of building mobile-switched sites (i.e. m.websitename.com), many innovative designers and developers are now focusing on responsive design. Its not enough to detect devices and switch users anymore. Mobile users are looking for a more fully integrated experience. With 55% of Internet usage in the U.S. coming through mobile devices, the best shops are doing mobile-first design and treating desktop and laptop design as secondary. Responsive design allows the layout to adjust based on the contextual experience of users. This means site designs need to be built so they respond to the width of the device, regardless of the gadget type. In more extreme cases, functionality itself can even switch, providing an even more contextually optimized experience. Lire le reste de larticle --> ici

  • 16 MAI 2014 - Pira- 19nha The startup emerged at a time when the industry was questioning whether or not Facebook commerce, or f-commerce, as some had abbreviated it, was actually worthwhile. Soldsie, which first launched in May 2012, found that Facebook commerce could work, when it wasnt just some other tab for users to click into, but could instead leverage the social activities already taking place across these retailers, sellers and businesses Facebook profile pages. On Facebook, sellers were sharing photos of their items for sale, which fans would then comment on, like and re-share. Soldsie then added another layer to that ongoing activity allowing visitors to comment SOLD in order to make a purchase. Consumers would only have to register one time with the Soldsie application, which allowed the business to access their personal data, including their email address. On the backend, Soldsie provides an interface for managing the invoicing process, with tools for tracking sales, invoices, inventory and more.

  • 16 MAI 2014 - Pira- 24nha PDC Markets Smart Tablet RFID Reader The tablet will enable hotels, resorts and amusement parks to read a visitors RFID wristband in order to provide access or services based on the ID encoded to that bands passive tag. RFID Journal PrecisionDynamicsCorp.(PDC),aproviderofIDwristbands and related products, has begun marketing a tablet reader known as the Smart Tablet, designed to allow users to capture the ID numbers encoded to high-frequency (HF) 13.56 MHz passive RFID tags at such locations as resorts, hotels and water parks, thereby enabling faster check-in, payments or other services. The tablet, which PDC debuted last month at the RFID Journal LIVE! 2014 conference and exhibition, acts in the same way as a kiosk with a built-in reader, but enables a companys staff to be mobile and thereby go directly to people wearing the RFID bracelets, rather than requiring them to seek out a kiosk. PDC partnered with software company Kioware, which provides the tablets software for capturing and interpreting read data. The tablet can then forward the collected data to a back-end server via a Wi-Fi connection or GPRS. The device could also store that information and upload it to the server at a later time.
