Strum For iOS Combines Short Music Videos With Instagram-Style Effects & Social Sharing


Smule has always been creative when it comes to app concepts, and they have done it again. If you’re a fan of Instagram but aren’t content with sharing mere static images, you might grow to love their newest app, Strum. The app won’t make you sound like T-Pain, turn you into a rapper or let you sing karaoke with the world, but it’s still fun to use and can come in handy every once in a while.

For several days we have been having news of the possible launch of a new Note Galaxy, a device highly criticized because of the size of your screen, and finally ended by defining a new type within the species known as Phablet.

Today the existence of Galaxy Note 2, seems to be confirmed by a leak coming from GSMArena. Apparently, the new Galaxy will come with a 5.5 inch AMOLED screen and have a design inspired by the Galaxy S3.

Inside include a dual-core Exynos, 1.5 GB of RAM and an 8 megapixel camera with enhanced optical.
Although no specific dates, is expected to be released for sale during the month of September, to compete with Apple iPhone 5.

Since its launch the Amazon Kindle Fire laid the foundation for success in the low price, which allowed segemento position in the low end. Mindful of this, Google developed its own tablet at an affordable price, the Google Nexus 7, which is positioned as a direct competitor of the tablet from Amazon.

Without delving into the comparative analysis, my intuition tells me that the Google guys have dethroned definitely to Amazon, which is that to see a tablet with a Tegra processor 3 Quad-Core and the latest operating system Android 4.1 Jelly Bean for just $ 199 I can only think of buying.

By now the Amazon are probably rethinking the Fire Kindle price to compete at least in price / performance with this new tablet that will undoubtedly sweep the market. But let's leave aside the fables and see who end the fight.


Being the developer of the operating system, Google gives a substantial advantage, and like the rest of the devices Nexus, the Nexus 7 is the first device to include the new version of Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, and probably one of the first to receive future updates.
Winner: Google Nexus 7

Both the Nexus 7 and the Fire possess Kindle 7-inch screens, but the differences are obvious to say a few specifications. While the Nexus 7 has an IPS display with a resolution of 1280 × 800 Amazon device has a resolution of 1024 x 600, which implies a 66% higher pixel density for the device from Google.

Winner: Google Nexus 7

Processor and GPU
The differences here are avismales, since the Kindle Fire has a dual core processor TI OMAP-4430 at 1 GHz with 512MB of RAM, while the Nexus 7 has a Tegra processor quad-core 3 to 1.3 GHz and 1 GB of RAM.

But that's not all, the Nexus 7 has an amazing 12-core Nvidia GPU ULP which means a significant superiority SGX540 PowerVR graphics on a single core that has the tablet from Amazon.

Winner: Google Nexus 7

Something that has attracted considerable attention is the absence of a rear camera in the Nexus 7, but to understand that this has been launched to compete with the Kindle Fire has not any camera, this is completely reasonable.

Thus, the Google Nexus 7 that only gives a front camera of 1.2 mega pixel camera, is positioned above the tablet from Amazon.

Winner: Google Nexus 7

Fire The Kindle comes with 8 GB of built-in storage capacity while the Google Nexus 7 is available in two versions, an 8 GB and a 16 GB of internal storage. Both devices have no Micro SD card slot.

Winner: Google Nexus 7

Currently, the Fire has a Kindle for $ 199, while the Google Nexus Tablet in memory of the same model cost $ 199. To this we subtract $ 25 to spend on Google Play and some forthcoming content including free on the tablet.

Winner: Google Nexus 7

At this height a conclusion that is more redundant, so I can only congratulate the guys at Google, who have done an impressive job to offer a very low-cost tablet in relation to the excellent features it offers.

As usual, with each new version of Android, Google changes its Easter Egg (Easter Egg). This is an animation that is hidden in every version of Android and how could it be otherwise, the new Jelly Bean also has its own.

The Easter egg this new version is a bean with antennas is characterized by being much more interactive than before.
To view the Easter Egg, go a-Menu -> Settings -> About your device and click repeatedly on "version of Android."
Here is the video courtesy of Droid-Life to see it for yourself:

After a long period full of rumors and leaks, the new Nexus 7 has been officially presented at the Google I / O 2012 Android 4.1 with Jelly Bean, and the truth is that it has complied with what we all expected, as it is a high-end tablet at a price more than accessible.

  • 7-inch IPS display, resolution of 1280 x 800
  • Corning Glass
  • Dimensions: 198.5x120x10.45mm
  • Weight: 340 g
  • MP 1.2 front camera
  • WiFi 802.11 b / g / n, Bluetooth
  • Tegra processor quad-core 3
  • 1 GB RAM
  • microUSB port
  • 4325 mAh battery (9 hours of use)
  • Android 4.1 Jelly Bean
  • Microphone, NFC, accelerometer, GPS, magnetometer, gyroscope

Seeing these specifications might think that there are better alternatives, especially in the absence of a good front camera, but the Nvidia Tegra 3 four-core 1.3 GHz, accompanied by a 12-core GPU and 1 GB of RAM we stop thinking it another way, as a high-end tablet.

Google This new device will come with the latest version of Android that includes improved user interface to which Google has been defined as Butter Project, which allow more flexible use of the device and greater customization, especially in the case of widgets. For the rest of updates to Android Jelly Bean can login here.

The Google Nexus 7 will be available in mid-July in the U.S., Canada, Australia and the UK in two models, one with a capacity of 8GB internal memory and another with 16GB.

Google promises that come from other countries as well but no estimated dates.

The price will undoubtedly be one of the determining factors in choosing the Nexus 7 for users, and this positions it as direct competition for Amazon Kindle Fire, but with vastly superior features.

Thus, the 8GB model will cost $ 199 while the 16GB model will cost 249 dollars.

free your s3 galaxy free and easy way to sim unlock voodoo galaxy S III

 Many times we bought a building on the supply terminal of an operator thanks to the offers that we offer but often (almost always), we have the added problem that despite having a permanent contract with them is the terminal itself locked so that only you can use with your network. What happens if for any reason you want to use another SIM from another operator? Well we spent the money to release it (there are many companies that offer this service) or we endure and hope for the period set by the operator to ask for the unlock code. There remains a third option, which is that in some cases and by an application can unlock the handset with the only requirement to be Root.

The thing does not always seem dejarnoslo so easy, but this time the holders of a Galaxy S 3 are in luck. Supercurio, known for his creations Vodoo project and cooked roms Voodoo has launched SIM Unlock Galaxy S III, a completely free application that will allow us to release our terminal with little effort. The only requirement is that we will be Root, something otherwise quite easy to get.

The mechanism is simple. We can download the App from the link below and we installed it. Then we would just throw it and click on the button Unlook. If we fulfill the requirements, in a moment we will have our Galaxy S3 unlocked and ready for use with any carrier.

Should not Root or may not have a compatible device warns us

A new tablet from the hand of the Spanish company BQ Reades, with this amount and three different mounting models Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

With this new model, BQ Tesla, the company raises the quality level of their previous models, starting with a lower 7 "screen, 800x480px resolution, which became the weakest point of the tablet (BQ Pascal 2) , to 8 "800x600px resolution at its next model with Ice Cream Sandwich, Kepler BQ 2.

The model stands now presented with a screen of 9.7 "IPS technology and outstanding resolution 1024x768px (an aspect of 4:3)

The use of IPS technology in this screen guarantees a viewing at angles very good, reaching nearly 180 degrees, and accompanied by a resolution of 1024x768px (that the iPad 1 and 2 have) will make this screen highlight very sharply against her younger sisters. On the other hand, have given the new tablet of a higher capacity battery, reaching the 6,000 mAh, a Full HD 1080p HDMI output, as Kepler 2, and a 16GB internal memory base, which may end up making the jump to 32GB, although this is unconfirmed.

All in a size of 187 x 241 x 9.5 mm. and weighing 596 g (like / similar to Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1)

The other specifications of the new Tesla BQ does not stand out very much against Kepler BQ BQ 2 or Pascal 2. All of them maintain their 1GHz Cortex A8 processor, 1GB of RAM, front camera, micro-USB 2.0 OTG, micro-SD slot up to 32GB, and so on.

And finally, best of all, for a price of 219 . In his shop is advertised as "coming soon", but in places like Fnac, the pre-sale is available now.
