A New Name for the Samsung Application Sore-Galaxy Apps

Samsung has decided that the time has come to bring something new for its clients. Thus, it rebranded its applications store and decided to make the switch from Samsung Apps to the more glamorous Galaxy App.

Samsung has brought in not only a new interface and name but also countless new applications that run only on mobile gadgets wearing the Samsung Galaxy touch. These have been categorized by the company in Best Picks, For Galaxy, Top and some others.

The category named “For Galaxy” is divided in four parts which offer the user several applications such as: Galaxy Specials, Applications for Professionals, Galaxy Gifts as well as Galaxy Essentials. The Specials have been made to be used mainly with Samsung SDKs.

The electronic company stated that the whole purpose of the Galaxy Apps is to provide the users with several options to customize the mobile gadgets they have in their possession. Moreover, they want to make a platform for making public their special promotions as well as deals.

This rebranding movement might diminish quite a bit the market sector that now belongs to Google Play. This might also be due to the fact that Samsung produces lots of Android gadgets that are very popular among users worldwide. In spite their cooperation in various domains, there is always room for some more cooperation in the world of hi-technology.

The new Samsung store, the Galaxy App, is going to start its activity on the 10th of July and soon it is going to be available to customers all over the globe.

Scaune Auto Copii omologate la preturi mici

Poate știți, poate nu, dar din 15 februarie vor intra în vigoare noile reglementări rutiere, ce prevăd, printre altele, obligativitatea folosirii scaunelor auto pentru copii, care au o înălțime mai mică de 135 cm. Legea mai prevede că scaunele auto trebuie să fie omologate. În acest context este și acest material, din care puteți afla unde găsiți scaune auto pentru copii omologate, pe care le puteți comanda online.

De exemplu, puteți alege Scaune Auto Copii DHS 835 Albastru, dacă greutatea copilului este între 0 și 18 kg. Are două nivele de reglare a spătarului și tetiera reglabilă în funcție de înălțimea copilului. Vă poate fi livrat, prin curier rapid, în 24 de ore, împreună cu certificatul de garanție și aveți drept de returnare în 14 zile. Culorile disponibile sunt albastru și roșu, iar produsul îl puteți plăti în numerar, atunci când îl primiți, online cu cardul sau prin ordin de plată. Mai multe detalii găsiți pe site (click pe link-ul anterior sau pe imaginea de mai jos).

S-ar putea ca unii dintre noi să-și spună că nu sunt mari probleme dacă acel scaun pentru copii lipsește din dotarea masinii. Din păcate, nu este deloc așa, putem plăti 400 de lei amendă în cazul în care nu respectăm această prevedere legală. Iată mai jos un extras dintr-un material, pe care l-am găsit aici, pe această temă.

„Codul Rutier a fost modificat si spune ca minorii care au pana la 1 metru si 35 de centimetri inaltime pot fi transportati cu automobilul numai daca sunt asezati in scaune sau pe niste perne speciale. Astfel, Romania se aliniaza legislatiei europene.

In trei saptamani veti plati 400 de lei amenda daca veti transporta copilul cu masina fara sa respectati masurile de siguranta impuse de lege si anume obligativitatea de a avea un scaun auto copii atunci cand calatoriti in masina cu copilasul dvs.

Nu usile blocate va salveaza copilul in cazul unui impact, ci un scaun adaptat pentru micut, cu centuri de siguranta in trei puncte.

Iata ce se petrece in habitaclu atunci cand are loc impactul: copilul este aruncat si izbit de peretii masinii, forta unui parinte, care l-ar strange in brate, nu are efect, iar copilul ar fi aruncat ca un proiectil.

Asa ca legea romaneasca a fost adaptata la cea europeana, pentru ca sa oblige parintii sa-si protejeze copiii. Noul regulament spune ca minorii care au pana 135 de cm inaltime, sa fie pusi intr-un scaun special.”

Și cum trei săptămâni trec repede, folosiți cu încredere, în următoarea perioadă, scaunele auto omologate pentru copii de la bekid.ro, pentru siguranța copiilor voștri și evitarea neplăcerilor provocate de nerespectarea legii.

The Government asks for More User Data claims Twitter

The social network, Twitter, has announced that the requests referring to user’s data and information grew a lot during the past six months. More and more states are asking information about the users of social networks.

However, the government of the United States of America is the most interested in this kind of information since almost half of the Twitter requests came from it. Usually the requests came when there was some sort of a criminal investigation going one. In order to get non-public information about various users the law representatives must obtain a court order or a subpoena. Direct messages as well as non-public tweets can be obtained only by means of a search warrant.

The report has been made public without the requests concerning the national security of various countries. Twitters as well as other Internet based companies are not allowed to disclose requests as such. All these companies have tried to obtain the right to publish more data on the orders referring to national security.

Twitter said that it had got 2,058 requests from more than fifty-four states during the first half of 2014. It has also received requests from eight states that had never asked for such information before. The social network does not fulfill all the requests. Thus, Twitter has honored only fifty-two percent of the requests coming from various states throughout the world and seventy-tow per cent of the requests coming from the US authorities.

In the second half of 2013 the short messaging service was confronted with no more than 1,410 requests. It has to be pointed out that the vast majority of Twitter users live outside the US borders.

These increased with thirty-eight percent in comparison with the second half of 2013. In that period Twitter registered around 9,199 copyright notices.

Companies such as Apple, Google, Facebook or Microsoft have also made public similar reports.

The Apple-IBM Team creates Worries for Microsoft and the Companies’ Partners

The electronics domain had been taken aback by the partnership of the former rivals Apple and IBM. This association has created a lot of concern not only for Microsoft and Blackberry but also for the partners of IBM and Apple.

However, the two companies have high expectations from their joint venture. Most of the details of this partnership are known only to Apple and IBM. For this reason the resellers working with Apple are a bit worried about their future collaboration with the company.

Andy Nunez, director of services employed by Liberty Tech, is concerned about the future of his company located in Griffin. He remembers how his company had to wait for its turn in order to receive the famous iPad 4. The bigger Apple partners received the tablet first. Nunez also claims that larger companies working with Apple have received higher revenue shares than his company. Nunez considers IBM a competitor not a partner and complains about the pricing structure of Apple hardware that leaves little income to small companies.

But not all are as upset as Andy Nunez. Bob Venero, the CEO of Holbrook a partner company of both Apple and IBM, hopes that this new partnership will give Apple what it takes in order to win the enterprise area and defeat Microsoft. Nonetheless, Venero is a bit concerned because the details of the deal have not been made public yet. Venero hopes that Apple will not work exclusively with IBM and leave aside its former partners.

Rival companies have more reasons to get worried. Blackberry might be completely wiped out in spite of its HIPAA devices and experience in the enterprise domain. Obviously, there is no need to point out that the financial problems that Blackberry has been experiencing recently are not helpful at all.

The IBM-Apple team has to face Microsoft and its latest “cloud first, mobile first”. Mark Skilton, a reputed professor employed by the Warwick Business School considers that this so unpredictable alliance might turn into a huge challenge for Microsoft and the newly taken over Nokia.

Skilton considers that Microsoft might have serious problems with its attempts to have the lions share from both enterprise and consumer markets. He points out that Amazon is also tackling the market with its Amazon Fire Phone and with its reading devices. Skilton says that Microsoft should definitely pay more attention as it has the example of Facebook which has failed in its attempts to introduce its phone on the market.

Starting with the month of April, Microsoft has permitted to everybody to install the Windows Phone 8.1 upgrade. They just had to sing up in order to receive a developer preview.

The Lumia Cyan upgrade allows Nokia to deliver some extra features besides the one already given by Windows Phone 8.1. Thus, the Nokia officials claim that the upgraded has simplified the interface for the camera applications and as a consequence the pictures are much easier to share and edit.

Fantastic News for Online Shoppers: the “Buy Now” Twitter Button

In the attempt to charm its financial gurus and demonstrate that it is equipped for producing advertisement income, Twitter has been testing new aspects that could provide it with a better income. A gimmick we have been hearing for a long is the ‘Buy Now’ amazing button straightforwardly installed into a tweet.

A two month old Wall Street Journal report had said that the micro-blogging website was trying various promotion sorts including “shoppable” Twitter advertisements. Presently, Re/Code has detected a few tweets that have been implanted with the help of the “Purchase Now” new button that redirected clients to the Fancy shopping site. For the time being the button can be found on the portable application, but not on the UI web.

A “Buy Now” new button inserted inside the tweet could mean that clients would be straightforwardly rerouted to the organization’s store or they could turn into potential regular Twitter buyers, if the organization has the right implicit devices installed. Despite the fact that we would like the last, the first choice has more chances to come true. This appears to be a greatly required move for Twitter to support its income, since brands could utilize the stage for more than simply making themselves aware for the public at large. As it has been pointed out by Mashable, “Adding buying functionalities to Timeline would appear to be a clear win for Twitter. Clients are acquainted with both ads and pictures at this point, so the expansion of a “Buy Now” would not be exceptionally troublesome. It would bring new income streams for Twitter and some of its brand clients.” A button as such might determine clients to linger on the Twitter platform for a more extended period.

The button is going to add Twitter as well since it will definitely boost social media shopping. The sites created for communicating online are known to play an indispensable part in increasing the local e-trade business sector. ‘Twitter Commerce’ as it has been named could further support it. In the past we have seen a few brands collaborate with sites having a social aspect in order to make people aware or promote their items.

Recently, we have run over the new peculiarity called #AmazonCart that permits clients to add Amazon items to their shopping cart without needing to leave Twitter. However, that does not mean that clients could buy items by means of Twitter. The characteristic just saves it into your account record with a choice to request it later. Essentially, it gives you a chance to include an item in your shopping cart, at whatever point you see an Amazon item interface on Twitter. In order to save the item, the client just needs to react and answer to the Amazoncart tweet.

On the other hand, Twitter Commerce aims to be diverse. In the event that some prior unauthorized reports and mockups are to be taken into consideration, then clients may have the capacity to buys items straightforwardly from Twitter. Clients will need to give Twitter their names, locations and all Mastercard data, which, as indicated by the archives, will be “taken care of safely inside the Twitter application.”

Twitter Commerce comments and posts will be similar with another tweets and they will appear in-stream, in the same way as Promoted Tweets. They could additionally appear under Twitter’s Discover area, which would hold the users’ activity concerning their buys on Twitter. Clients can get more insights about the items they acquired and additional data about the dealer.

Twitter is additionally known to be trying the “retweet with comment” feature, which would further permit clients to include their remarks or explanations so as to suggest a certain brand, item or product. This implies that a retweeted message will be transformed into a picture, leaving clients with about 140-characters to express their views, opinions and experience. This could also be one of Twitter’s business plans. With everything taken into account, Twitter is preparing its stage to turn into the following enormous e-commerce place to be.
