Microsoft admits he should have been more aggressive with the iPad

No one is aware that the products of the family iPad are enemies to beat in the world of tablets. I have been since the explosion of this new market segment, and it seems that it will continue to be for a few more years.

Although Microsoft's priority remains its new operating system, Windows 8, the truth is that would love nothing more than your new tablet Surface triumph in the eyes of critics and audiences. However, it appears that this is not so and so Steve Balmer, CEO of Microsoft, has confided in some U.S. media.

According to Electronista, Balmer announced to its shareholders at an annual meeting on Wall Street are not taking advantage of the opportunities offered by innovation, which affected the braking of the benefits of investors.

He also admitted that Microsoft should have designed, developed and released their tablet Surface long before Apple had done with the whole market. Have been slow to adapt to the process of innovation in software and hardware, which comes when the train was leaving.

However, as a good CEO is confident that his company following movements in the world of tablets, will give good results. He added that he was very pleased with the level of innovation achieved by its designers and engineers.

Do any of you have the Microsoft Surface? Are you happy with your performance? Do you think that the Redmond company has been late to juicy market for tablets, or you still have a chance? In my opinion, the tablet has not liked as much as you would expect from a device on which they had placed too many bets. What do you think?

Apple patents a wireless charging system

ipad apple Apple patenta un sistema de carga sin cables

One of things that most users were asking was for Apple to offer the ability to sync iOS devices without having to connect a cable to your computer. Finally this functionality came, and now you can sync your music, apps, movies or just make a backup of your iPhone or iPad without connecting through a cable.

You can also play content on an external TV or remote speakers without any cable through AirPlay technology, but at the moment there is a section where we can not completely get rid of the wires, the battery charge.

Different accessories to charge the battery through an induction system, although still necessary to connect a device to a jack and place the iPhone or iPad in a particular place, it is also necessary to place the device accessories that are often more annoying as the cable itself.

Apple could create a wireless charging system for iPad, iPhone and peripherals

Luckily it seems that Cupertino are looking for solutions and power transmission NFMR (Near Field Magnetic Resonance) could be a good solution.

Apple has patented a system that would allow complete charging the battery of the iPhone, iPad or other devices without connecting them to any cable, accessory or have it be supported in a given area.

patente carga inalambrica apple Apple patenta un sistema de carga sin cables

This technology would enable an area of about one meter from the issuer where all devices may take the energy to fill your battery. For example, the sender could be an iMac, a computer that is always connected to the power supply. Thanks to this connection as an issuer NFMR could send energy wirelessly needed to charge the battery of an iPhone, an iPad and could even charge the battery of the keyboard, mouse or Magic Trackpad with which we manage our team, so that would not be necessary to remove the batteries for them to load.

No doubt this is a very interesting idea, an idea that Apple has already patented and we could see become reality at any time, although you may never see it come true. You know, often patents are only patents.

On the other hand, it would be important to know the influence that this technology could have on health. It was always said that electromagnetic waves can be harmful and add more frequencies to which we are exposed do not know what the consequences might be.

What do you think of this technology? Would you like to see something?

Is iPad Mini the perfect gift for Christmas?

In a study recently conducted by Nielsen, 36% of children 6 to 12 years said they most wanted gift for Christmas was an iPad Mini.

ipad mini9 ¿Es el iPad Mini el regalo perfecto para estas navidades?

Adults and older consumers aged 13, also had a desire to have an iPad Mini and up to 11% placed the iPad Mini in the top ten most desired gifts to be festive season.

The iPad Mini is one of the perfect gifts for Christmas

There is a very good reason why the iPad Mini is so high on the wish lists of many people. This is a small, portable and a perfect size to use with one hand and take it around with you. It weighs only 308 grams and has 7.2 mm of thickness.

Although the price is a little higher than its direct competition, the iPad Mini offers a larger screen, a high quality camera and a battery more powerful than its competition. In addition, the iPad Mini has something for now is impossible to find in other options like Google Nexus 7 or Amazon Kindle Fire HD, Apple's App Store and the entire ecosystem of content from Apple.

The App Store has over 700,000 apps available, and all are compatible with the iPad Mini. Moreover many of them are designed for use on a tablet , which does not happen with stores competing applications. In the list of applications available there for everyone and there are plenty of games that are not available for other platforms. In addition, the catalog of music, movies and books Apple is really extensive and complete.

Of course, the iPad Mini is not a perfect device and could be better. Given that Apple products launched in recent times, are missing a high-definition Retina screen.

So it seems clear that the iPad Mini is a great gift for Christmas. You can choose to give away some toys that will be forgotten within a few weeks or give away an iPad Mini to be a hit for many months or years.

Another option to value and take into account, especially if money is not an impediment is the iPad 4. This is a device with a larger screen and high definition, as well as having much more power than other devices and even the iPad Mini. Of course, the starting price is a little higher, but we also think it's a much more complete device, but heavier and less portable.

The iPad Mini is a great gift and I'm sure anyone who receives one will be happy with it (except maybe Android fans). Of course, if you're thinking of giving an iPad Mini this Christmas, hurry to buy it, because the stock may suffer breakage at any time and be difficult to find available units.

Do you plan to give away an iPad Mini this Christmas? Who?
