Microsoft to announce DirectX 12 on March 20

Microsoft will be giving game developers a closer look at the next version of its graphics API set on March 20 at Game Developer Conference or GDC. Microsoft didn’t reveal much about it right now and all we know for sure is that AMD, Intel, NVIDIA and Qualcomm are onboard with it right now.

But while Microsoft did not reveal much on its website, the GDC schedule for the DirectX event does give a good hint at what we can expect. According to the description, it seems DirectX 12 will offer lower-level access to hardware, similar to AMD’s Mantle API. Having low-level access to your hardware means you are able to get the most out of it and make better use of it.

Although DirectX 12 will be announced later this month, it is not expected to release until next year. Considering Microsoft usually releases major version of DirectX with new versions of Windows, we could see it arrive with Windows 9 next year. DirectX 12 will also be in future versions of Windows Phone and will supports the same features as on the desktop version of Windows, so a game made for DirectX 12 on Windows will technically run on Windows Phone.

We’ll find out more details couple of weeks from now when DirectX 12 is announced.

iPhone 6 Rumors

iphone   iPhone 5S and 5C

Though the iPhone 5s and the iPhone 5c have only been available for a couple of months, rumors about the next generation iPhone have been surfacing since long before Apple’s newest iPhone’s debuted.

One of the strongest rumors I have heard  are that Apple are planning on bringing the release this year forward from the usual September slot as in previous years to July, Many analyst sight different reasons for this change but the majority say it is all down to making sure the device or devices are ready and in stock for the holiday season, Only time will tell on this one but id expect to see an announcement about a planed event coming out in May or June.

The above rumor of the early release has all but been confirmed as false after GT Advanced confirmed they would be making sapphire screen-coatings for their next line of smartphones and analysts have noticed that GT Advanced future shipments for the screens point to a September release (more on this below).

Another rumor is the reported upgrade to iOS 8, I can see this happening as new iPhones tend to be realised with the new iOS, there won’t be a big facelift like iOS 7 was as it’s still relatively new but may come with minor upgrades and improvements, not to forget iOS 7.1 the first major update to hit the new iOS is out mid March.

         iPhone 6 Render

Other common and popular rumors are the iPhone 6 will be coming in 2 or 3 different sizes this would be to allow for different size screens pointing to a 4.7, 5.7 and 6 inch screens, the screen maybe also slightly curved, and other rumours suggest it will go edge to edge or as on some of the videos below the screen will go over the edges forming the side of the phone if this is the case then the iPhone 6 will look very impressive.
We also have rumors apple will drop the home button, some say this will be replaced with just a touch pad under the screen (like the example above) overs suggest that the button will go but there will still be the home button logo for people to press, this last one seems less likely as the on the home button on the iPhone 5s we have already lost the home logo of old but one thing we do know the finger print scanner is going to stay and with some of the patents Apple have produced there’s room to speculate that it will be enhanced and further developed.

Some news we can confirm Apple and Gorilla Glass will be parting ways with the release of the iPhone 6, as the Cupertino-based tech giant will be switching to sapphire screen-coating for the next line of smartphones. Sapphire coating has been used in high-end watches for a while due to its high-durability and scratch-resistance. Currently, sapphire coating has only been used on iPhone camera lenses and the iPhone 5s fingerprint sensor. The upcoming iWatch will supposedly enjoy sapphire coating as well. And the company behind Apple’s sapphire coating, GT Advanced, stands to make a pretty penny from their deal. They are looking at $500-$700 Million for the first six months, since coating a display with sapphire costs 3-4 times more than coating it with Gorilla Glass (which only costs $3 per screen). Although the specific number of displays GT Advanced will be producing isn’t known, we do know they haven’t produced enough to make a May shipment date of the iPhone 6. Analysts believe that, based on GT Advanced’s shipments, that the iPhone 6 will be ready for sale come September 2014.

There is also a small rumor that the name may change depending on the size of iPhone you purchase, the largest version will be the iPhone Air (this ties in with the iPad and Mac names) then there will be the iPhone 6 and an iPhone 6C this could be true looking at the change in name of iPad ect.

Other rumors include like Samsung and Sony before them Apple will bring out the iWatch as mentioned above, this will also have a sapphire screen coating and will act as an aid to like and health and fitness.

Other rumors heard that could be true or become true in one way are

  • Camera app upgrades and Camera upgrade to 10MP or higher
  • Thinner and lighter device
  • New chipset in include a 64Bit A8 processor
  • iPhone 6 will be water resistant
  • iPhone 6 will come out a wide range of colours

Some of these ruomors leave us asking more questions like, What dose all this mean for the iPhone 5C? will there be a 6C from the outset? will the camera match the Galaxy S5? Will it be lighter than a 5S? What screen will we be getting? Will any of the above happen or will Apple surprise the world?

Below are some video renders of possible iPhone 6 designs.

The Samsung Galaxy S5 Behind In The Game?

gsmarena_001 gsmarena_003

The Samsung Galaxy S5 has just been announced live at MWC, Specs and details will follow below.

So, the Galaxy S5 is going to pack a 5.1″ SuperAMOLED display with 1080p resolution, not much of an upgrade over its predecessor the S4.
The camera got a significant update though – it’s now a 16MP one with just 0.3s shot-to-shot time, selective focus and 4K video recording. The Selective Focus seems to be similar to Nokia’s Refocus app – it shoots a picture and you can choose the focus after the fact.
There is also a new HDR Live mode which allegedly lets you see how the HDR photo will look like even before you take it.
Another new addition is the heart rate monitor placed just below the rear camera under the LED flash. You just need to put you index finger there and the device will tell you your heart rate. The Samsung Galaxy S5 will focus on fitness apps (S-Health 3.0 on board), especially with Samsung’s newest wearables having a heart rate monitor, too.

Galaxy S5 will come with a fingerprint sensor (who would have guessed!) and it will be embedded in the Home key. You will need to swipe your finger 8 times to record it and after that you will be able to unlock the S5 with your fingerprint. You can also authorize PayPal payments with just a single swipe of your registered finger.

Finally, the Galaxy S5 will  be water and dust resistant. This means we are probably not getting an Active version as it was with the Galaxy S4.
Other specs that matter are USB 3.0 port, LTE connectivity with download booster mode where you can use both Wi-Fi and LTE for super-fast downloads, Android 4.4 KitKat with support for OK, Google command to launch Google Now anywhere, new TouchWiz skin with flat and round icons (probably the same as the Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 slate).
Unfortunately, the design of the Galaxy S5 is nothing ground-breaking. The front looks quite the same as the previous Galaxy S4, though the back features a matte plastic with some dotted texture. If the Galaxy S5 will become available in black, white blue and gold colours.

The verge with a first hands on

Samsung began the event saying they had listened to their customers, listening to some of the customers I know I know their not happy with this phone but time will tell if the S5 is behind the times from launch.

Sony Xperia Z2

gsmarena_001

After weeks of speculation and social media build up from Sony, the anticipated new flagship device from Sony was announced to day as the brands flagship device it needs to stand out from the crowd, the spec is up there and follows on from the much popular and successful predecessor the Xperia Z1, the Z2 is water-resistant, in the tradition of the Z line before it.

Below are the promotional videos for the device

The Xperia Z2 flagship, a refinement of last year’s Xperia Z1.
It has a 5.2″ screen – a 1080p Triluminos IPS screen, with the same Bravia tech used in Sony’s TV.
The 20.7MP camera has been updated with 4K video recording (at 30fps) and a number of new effects. The camera features the same 1/2.3″ sensor with 27mm G Lens with f/2.0 aperture.
One of the new effects is Timeshift, which records 720p video at 30fps. Another one is the Background defocus, yet another is a dedicated mode for Vines.
It’s powered by Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 801 chipset with four Krait 400 cores at 2.3GHz and 3GB RAM.
Despite the size increase, the new flagship is only a little taller and actually narrower and thinner. The battery capacity went up a tad to 3,200mAh, while the weight went down to 158g.
As before, the Xperia Z2 has an IP58 certification, allowing it to work under water.
The phone will launch in March at €600 / £600. The initial color options are White, Black and Purple.
Sony will also pack an advanced headset with digital noise cancellation, the Sony MDR-NC31EM (normally £40).

Why So Serious !!!!!!!

The_Dark_Knight_Faces_by_jblackcat13

For this next post I’m looking at one of my favourite films.

In 2008 Christopher Nolan brought us the second of his 3 Batman films The Dark Knight.  This is the film where Batman, Gordon and Harvey Dent launch an assault on the Mob during which they let the clown out of the box, The Joker who in turn became bent on turning Gotham in on itself and bringing any heroes down to his level.

As many fans of the films may or may not know The Dark Knight earned $534,858,444 in North America and $469,700,000 in other territories for a worldwide total of $1,004,558,444. It became the fourth film in history to gross more than $1 billion worldwide and the highest-grossing film of 2008 worldwide. It is currently the 16th-highest-grossing film of all time worldwide. It made $199.7 million on its worldwide opening weekend which ranks 28th on the all-time chart.

In an attempt to cross $1 billion in worldwide gross, and in order to increase the chances of the film winning Oscars since the voting for the Academy Awards was approaching, Warner Bros. re-released the film in traditional theatres and IMAX theatres in the United States as well as in other countries on January 23, 2009.  It finally accomplished its goal to cross the $1-billion-mark, in February 2009. Therefore, as of March 2009, its total earnings stand at over $1 billion worldwide.

But there was a marketing campaign that helped push the film to reach these heights that many people don’t credit as much as they should. A company called 42 Entertainment where given the task of looking after the viral marketing for The Dark Knight they came up with a plan and strategy that brought us events which would appear on the time line of the trilogy to bridge the gap between Batman Begins and The Dark Knight. It would show us the Joker coming to the front of the criminal world and the campaign to get Harvey Dent elected as District Attorney. The fact it was just a simple use of materials already available to promote the film, and all they did was just deface it with a joker smile, eyes and a “HA, HA, HA” written in red font really worked. Couple this with custom built websites for Dent and The Joker plus campaign materials designed and produced under the slogan I Believe In Harvey Dent – It became iconic.

Below are photos of fans backing their sides cause

pic5 jokerprotesters-viral-bril

Below is the quote of the 42 Entertainment website.

“Why So Serious?” was designed as a 360° alternate reality experience that played out over 15 months leading up to the release of The Dark Knight. Spilling out over a multitude of different platforms, this deep immersive campaign recruited the audience to become real citizens of Gotham City. Over 11 million unique participants in over 75 countries fueled the rise of the Joker as henchmen, campaigned for Harvey Dent to get elected as District Attorney, and even took the law into their own hands by becoming copycat Batman vigilantes.

Below is a photo of the I Believe in Harvey Dent pack you could get and a copy of the Joker Poster

From calling phone numbers written in the sky, to hunting down GPS coordinates in order to find mobile phones baked inside of birthday cakes “Why So Serious?” was an experience like no other. As these fans collectively scoured the globe in search of clues, their incredible passion generated billions of impressions in the press and blogosphere setting a new benchmark for immersive entertainment.

Below are some short videos summing up the campaign.

The stats for the campaign are on the videos below and are really quite impressive:

4 Ways Social Media Can Be Used To Replace Christmas Cards

fireplace

It’s only a matter of time before your Letterbox, Doormat and Floor is packed with Christmas cards filled from family and friends with the usual bad Christmas puns. That’s when you know it’s time to send your own.

If like you me you can’t find the time to stuff envelopes, your on a tight budget or you just want to go with a more up todate techie twist this festive season, the wonders of social media can help you spruce up this year’s Season’s Greetings.

Below I have a few ideas for getting the most out of social media this Christmas Period. Whether your strengths lie in Facebook, Twitter Instagram, Youtube or Pinterest, you’re sure to find an option that suits your expertise the best.

The most obvious option for Facebook is to post your Christmas photo or picture on your Timeline with a message open and dedicated to everyone. It’s just that quick, simple and does the trick.

FacebookpostThis is my Facebook sending out a picture with some text as a Christmas status

Another option available is to create a Festive album, giving each of your family members their own photo — meaning no more “I look terrible in this picture” ”Can we take the photo again” ”I don’t want to be in a family picture I’m to old or cool for this” complaints — as well as adding in pictures of your Christmas goodies, Christmas trips to winter wonderlands, Christmas tree ornaments or your pets in cool Santa outfits (like Bruno below).

Pictures-North-Dogs-Christmas-Costumes-Reindeers

Why stop there when you can do so so much more? There are plenty of resources to take it a step further, some cool examples of this is TouchNote  and JustWink, these websites/apps will help you easily create and share e-cards through Facebook, Twitter and email bringing our Christmas cards to life.

facebookThis is me creating a Christmas life event on Facebook

If like me you find yourself looking for the more personal written element, and lets be honest a status update just doesn’t seem big enough or good enough, you could create a custom life event for your Christmas greetings, this will highlight the post more prominently on your Timeline for everyone to see (like above).

1465177_471996902919848_281878589_nHere is a picture I shared on Instagram of th outside of my house this year.

It comes as no surprise to you or me that probably the most obvious way to share a social media Christmas card and maybe the easiest would be through Instagram. The photo/Video sharing site/app makes it so easy for you to edit your smartphone pics/videos instantly, you can treat them with a filter, add a blur effect and then send them out into the world for everyone to see.

There are apps like Instaquote for example available on the iOS and Android platforms that let you add a “Season’s Greetings” message to your photo before you share it to Facebook or Twitter. You can also take a 15-second video of your family at a particularly cute holiday moment, like decorating the tree or baking cookies.

And if your in the more American tradition at Christmas and have a famliy shot as your card picture and this is the only time you can wrangle the brood together for that oh-so-rare family shot, you can still get the picture printed from Canvas Pop to hang as cool wall art.

Pinterest-Christmas

It  may not be the best platform to share your “Christmas Card,” but Pintresst  gives you an easy method for grouping together your photos, videos or messages. You can even add a personal touch in the comments.

Pinterest will allow you to create a totally different kind of card — one that showcases your family’s entire holiday season, this can include the cookie recipes you plan to use, photos of them after their backed, your home decked out in its Christmas finest and so much more.

with Pintresst you can also upload files straight from your Laptop, PC or Mac to create an interactive wall of photos and content. Record a message of the kids saying “Merry Christmas” and save it as a video file to your board, or cover it with photos from your holiday party so family members or maybe work colleges who can’t make it home or to the office party can still feel like part of the fun.

Once you’ve finished your board, email it with a personal message attached, or share the link via Facebook and Twitter and choose your favorite picture to share on Instagram.

One final option is the option for those who like to really go all out , so if you want to be all singing and all dancing then the YouTube video option is the way to go, and it’s much easier than you think. Most digital cameras and mobile phones are more than enough to take a decent video but I find from personal experience the digital camera on my iPhone is perfect for making nice little movies/trailers for/from events and special occasions, and anyone can figure out basic video editing software such as iMovie, I use this a lot and the options available to you on an app for a tablet or phone are really quite impressive and there are a load more on the full programs for Macs and Laptops.

If you need an idea to get you started, here’s some inspiration:

Motors Trade Need To Engage More With Social Media

car_logos_w1

Since being asked to carry out and run a blog in work I have looked for ways that local companies in my area use social media to market them self’s and engage with customers, after 4-6 weeks of research I have noticed a varying difference from some companies having no social media and some actively using social media . But this just goes to show that a study into social media use by car dealers from 2012 was correct and is the trend not just for car dealers but throughout the motor industry.

The survey from the US highlights the growing importance of social media for car dealers.

The survey carried out by Digital Air Strike found that the majority of car buyers, 69%, use social media in their dealership selection process.

The 2012 Automotive Dealership Social Media and Online Reputation Study found dealers need to increase engagement with car shoppers on social networks and review sites during the car buying process.

This was a trend highlighted at the Motor Trader Social Media conference in 2011.

The study, measuring usage trends on Facebook, Twitter and Google+, surveyed 275 car buyers who purchased a vehicle in the last six months.

Highlights include:

  • 69% of consumers said social media sites helped their vehicle purchase decision
  • 68% of car shoppers said that dealership reviews impacted which dealership they visited when shopping for a vehicle
  • 50% of consumers said that reading reviews affirmed their original choice of dealership
  • 18% of consumers said they either selected a dealership based on the reviews they read or changed their choice of dealership after reading reviews on multiple dealerships

“This study highlights the importance of social networks and review sites in the car buying process,” said Alexi Venneri, co-founder of Digital Air Strike.

As you can see from the study the motors industry seem to be jumping on the social media bandwagon slowly, but there are rays of sunshine, showing the many how its done and the industry is starting to sit up. One of the key examples on the big world-wide stage is Ford Motor Company

Ford has brought the social experience to the forefront of their marketing efforts.

Each time they add a new blog post, they pull in the image, headline of the post and the comments from readers onto the front page of their website. Those new to the site or those browsing for a new car get to experience the company and its culture from a social viewpoint right from the start.

Their blog, The Ford Story, is also unique. In the image below you can see their innovative layout where viewers can start reading the comments before they read the article, putting their fans’ and followers’ viewpoints first. Introducing your blog and your readers’ comments to new viewers sets a welcoming and friendly first impression for any company.

ford

Notice the placement of the Stories button in the image below. Ford takes the social sharing component to the next level by not only asking their customers for their Ford stories, but also asking their community to share ideas that are in popular categories like Safety or Personalization.

Ford uses this as a way to get new ideas for their next generation of cars. These ideas are not taken lightly; Ford has used many of these innovations to advance the technology of their cars. They do a great job of involving their fans and customers into their company growth.

ford stories

Also, photos are always a great way to attract new viewers and draw in existing audiences. In the image below Ford has added a Flickr widget to show off some of their latest photos, making their site more interactive and fun. (One little-known fact is that Flickr is a fantastic tool for search engine optimization. When you load your photos onto Flickr, you can tag them and optimize the descriptions.)

ford flickr
 
Ford also use the usual platforms of Facebook and Twitter and engage with customers and fans alike, they use these platforms to upload photos, videos, updates and news.
 
twitterfordukFordMotoes twitterford
 
As you can see above are little snippets of their online profiles, as you can see the followers, likes and shares are very good and growing all the time and as one of the leading companies in the motors industry are setting the trend for others to follow. This goes for local dealers brand new and 2nd hand and other companies in the motors industry, Locally one of the better companies are Transporters R Us they are based in Swansea South Wales, Transporters R Us is the UK’s largest and most trusted VW T4, VW T5 and VW Caddy parts & accessories retail specialist.
 
Transporters R Us actively use Facebook and Twitter to continually engage with fans, customers and future customers by uploading offers and photos. Their pages grow day by day and their content gets likes, shares and comments from all over the UK, they know that be keeping interactive in this they keep interest up in what they are doing, why they are doing things and how.
 
trans1
 
 
On summary the motors trade in all areas but mainly locally needs to improve and grasp the social media revaluation before it gets left behind, and this can be achieved by some simple yet effective steps,  local motors trade industry can gain the expouser they need without a lot of work being put into it its just a case of following simple rules in engagement as covered in some older posts and making everything relevant.
 
I am here to help and if you have any questions about social media get in touch having had over 8 years of promoting events, clubs pubs and more on Facebook and Twitter I’m happy to answer and help in anyway possible.
