Objects of Desire http://www.themoneytimes.com/taxonomy/term/136/all/feed en "Winky" - Google Glass's new Android App takes snaps as you wink. http://www.themoneytimes.com/featured/20130503/winky-google-glasss-new-android-app-takes-snaps-you-wink-id-1701713161.html <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Who knew winking at someone or flirting could end up capturing their memory by taking a snap? Google Glass's latest app, 'Winky' let's you snap photos by simply winking. This sure sounds fun, being able to take a snap of someone who really caught your eye by a simple universal eye gesture, a Wink. </p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img src="http://www.themoneytimes.com/files/imagecache/picturethumb/image_35.jpg" alt="" title="" class="imagecache imagecache-picturethumb imagecache-default imagecache-picturethumb_default" width="180" height="117" /> </div> </div> </div> <p><Strong>Winky</strong>, an unofficial Google Glass app enables wink-photography enabling its internal camera to snap a photograph whenever the wearer is blinking an eye. </p> <p>The internal camera notices the eye gestures and captures the moment. Isn't it something which we would all want to be wearing??This feature is sure going to be a great hit amongst youngsters.</p> <p>This new feature was developed by <Strong>Mike DiGiovanni</strong> Emerging Technology Lead at Roundarch Isobar. He also is the man behind Winky's high end tech specifications. Also known for his famous "Bulletproof" lock screen for securing the Google Glass to properly adjust to your face settings. </p> <p><Strong> Features of Winky:</strong><br /> -Winky is an Android App.</p> <p>-It notices and monitors the eye gestures of the wearer and when the user gives an exaggerated blink, it captures the moment by taking a snap. </p> <p>-No need to flash a snap by using the voice commands like, "Ok Glass, take a photo" etc. </p> <p>-A snap can also be taken even if the Google Glass screen is turned off. No need to manually press the physical shutter release button on top of the screen.</p> <p>-It will not capture an image with the natural eye blinking, it needs to be for a few seconds at least and thus the term an 'exaggerated blink". For the sensor to be able to pick it up, the wink needs to reasonably obvious. </p> <p><Strong>Winky released as an Android App</strong><br /> Mike DiGiovanni has released Winky as an Android App. It uses the Android source code which will require it to run on the application package file or APK.<br /> The Google Glass users would also require to get an hands on experience in using the Winky Feature before they could finally set their hands on it. </p> <p>With the Google Glass Explorer Edition already known to the users, the usage of exploring the Winky Feature will not be much of a problem. </p> <p>According to DiGiovNni, he says, “Winking really changes things. Winking lets you lifelog with little to no effort. I’ve taken more pictures today than I have the past 5 days thanks to this. Sure, they are mostly silly, but my timeline has now truly become a timeline of where I’ve been”. </p> <p><Strong>The source Code of Winky:</strong><br /> The source code of the Winky app can be downloaded through GitHub site. This site is DiGiovanni's official site for Google Glass users. </p> <p>After the users have created and run the APK, they only need to calibrate and activate the Winky to start its operation. The Winky would be activated by a simple Wink by the Google Glass Users. Now that's one of the easiest ways to activate an app...isn't it?</p> <p>Spotted recently by Reddit user, Fodawin, the DioGiovanni's code activates the Wink Option easily spotted in the MyGlass companion app for Google Glass. </p> <p><Strong>Expected price:</strong><br /> Currently the expected price which the developers have quoted for the Google Glass Explorer Edition would be roughly $1500 but reports suggest that a slightly inexpensive regular model for regular consumers would also be launched in the near future probably sometime next year.</p> <p>So will Google Glass's Winky feature go down well with the privacy advocates? This is something which would worry the Google Glass developers. There is news of Google adding a notification LED in front of the Glass as an indication for those in close vicinity to the wearer, that probably he is being captured. </p> <p>However photos triggered simply by winking is something we would all want to try. </p> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-imagecaption"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Winky Feature lets Google Glass wearers take snaps by simply winking.</p> </div> </div> </div> Android app Cell Phones features of Winky Gadgets google Glass Handhelds Hourly Update India Internet Markets Mike DiGiovanni News Objects of Desire source code Technology Top Story Winky Fri, 03 May 2013 05:40:50 +0000 Shikha.hyd 1701713161 at http://www.themoneytimes.com Spectacular features of the new Audi R8 http://www.themoneytimes.com/featured/20130410/spectacular-features-new-audi-r8.html <div class="field field-type-text field-field-teaser"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>With the new upgraded version of Audi R8 Coupe launched in the market, its features have already created a buzz. Money Times talks about the great new features of the Audi R8 Coupe in detail.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-lead"> <div class="field-label">lead:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Showcasing and discussing at length the great new 8 features of the Audi R8....</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>Starting at a price of Rs 1.34 Crore(Ex-Showroom price), the upgraded version of Audi's R8 model has been launched. Audi's R8 has been an ultra-lightweight car showcasing clear structured side lines, muscular body and high performance capabilities.</p> <p>The design of the Audi R8 Coupe mostly emphasises on its origin which is motor racing which is seen by the way the car is structured. We shall discuss the 8 new features incorporated in the new version of the awesome looking sporty Audi R8 in detail.</p> <p><Strong>8 great features of Audi R8 Coupe:</strong></p> <p><Strong>1. Front:</strong><br /> The four rings signature of the Audi Class is no longer in the usual position in the grill, they are above it on the bonnet. This makes the front end seem closer to the road. The two wide air inlets are an important design element and also guaranteed sufficient cool air is supplied to both the engine and the brakes. They are an highlight to the slim Audi single-frame.</p> <p><Strong>2.V8 or V10 mid-engine:</strong><br /> The mid-engine showcases itself beneath the rear window and is truly picture perfect and a unique blend of style with high performance. The optional engine compartment lighting gives it an extra edge and is quite impressive to look at when the vehicle is stand still.</p> <p><Strong>3.Applications:</strong><br /> The new applications in aluminium look as well as the highlights in high-gloss black portrays its high quality interior further more.</p> <p><Strong>4. Side-blades:</strong><br /> The latest most striking feature of the car's exteriors are the sideblades. Their main function not only involves routing intake and cooling air in the engine but they add a key characteristic design element to the vehicle. On the V10 version, the sideblades are flared, and on the V10+ version, they are made of carbon to emphasize the lightweight character. </p> <p><Strong>5.Exclusivity:</strong><br /> Optional full leather upholstery is available along with trims in fine Nappa leather and diamond-patterned stitching, thus providing an appealing and visibly exclusive interiors. </p> <p>The option of Alcantara headlining is also available on request along with the sports seats and the door trims which are available in diamond-patterned stitching in contrasting colours.</p> <p><Strong>6.The LED headlights:</strong><br /> The head-light design pattern of the new Audi R8 makes is easily recognisable either during the day or at night. The daytime running light strip provides great characteristic appearance emphasizing on the floating dipped beam lens.</p> <p>The LED lights all shine together with a spotlight to illuminate the road evenly. There are 6 LED arrays in the reflector chambers that throw a bright and a pleasant light color. The Audi R8 also has a static turning light which gets activated automatically at speeds of up to about 70km/hr or at 40km/hr with the indicator switched on to illuminate the road course more brightly. This depends on the steering angle.</p> <p><Strong>7.Customisation:</strong><br /> The ambience and the interiors of the car is exclusive because of different storage possibilities, precise workmanship and a alarming choice of customising possibilities. </p> <p><Strong>8.Storage:</strong><br /> The large storage capacity of the new Audi R8 is another great feature allowing almost 100litres under the bonnet and around 90 litres behind the seats. Spacious luggage space proves to be another strength of the vehicle.</p> <p>With the awesome new features, great sporty looks and a motor racing origin, Audi R8 proves to be a great deal...</p> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img src="http://www.themoneytimes.com/files/imagecache/picturethumb/image_17.jpg" alt="" title="Audi R8 upgrade with the 8 new features" class="imagecache imagecache-picturethumb imagecache-default imagecache-picturethumb_default" width="180" height="135" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-box"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>The new features of the new version of the Audi R8 include:<br /> 1.Front<br /> 2.SideBlades<br /> 3.Exclusivity<br /> 4.LED array Head Lights<br /> 5.Customisation<br /> 6.Applications<br /> 7.

Dr. Gadget is impressed with its slew of features and a price that seems hard to beat.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-lead"> <div class="field-label">lead:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Dr. Gadget has a detailed look at the best small tablet -- Google Nexus 7</p> </div> </div> </div> <p>Even after the release of several small tablets, Google Nexus 7 remains the tablet to buy. The Android 4.2 environment, sharp screen, a long battery life and an incredibly low price make it immensely popular, especially among price conscious shoppers. </p> <p><strong>Specifications</strong><br /> The Nexus 7 measures 7.8x4.7x0.4 inches and at 0.76 pounds, it weighs less than Amazon Kindle, but heavier than Apple iPad Mini. The volume rocker and power button rest towards the right edge of the device. A Micro-USB port and a headphone jack are located towards the right hand bottom. </p> <p><strong>Android 4.2</strong><br /> The Nexus 7 has the latest Android 4.2 OS, and has access to Google Play’s close to 675,000 apps. There are plenty of useful apps like Play, Music, YouTube, Gmail, Google Maps, and a number of others loaded by default. Accessing the tablet settings is easier than before and all you need to adjust the brightness, Wi-Fi settings, and Bluetooth and others is to swipe down from top right corner. </p> <p><strong>Hardware</strong><br /> The Nexus 7 runs on a 1.3GHz Nvidia Tegra 3 processor, has 1 GB RAM, support for Google's NFC-based technology, Bluetooth, an accelerometer, and a gyroscope. The Android Beam lets you send files, maps and web pages with other compatible Android devices, when kept close to each other. </p> <p>The Nexus 7 has 1,200X800-pixel resolution and has a quite sharp screen, though the Kindle Fire HD and the Nook HD offer a better display. Playing games is fun, but the frame rate can be slow at times, especially for memory intensive games like Asphalt 7 or N.O.V.A. 3. </p> <p><strong>Conclusion</strong><br /> At $199, the Google Nexus 7 is a great purchase. With a slew of features available at this ridiculously low price, Dr. Gadget feels it is the best small tablet, way ahead of its competitors. </p> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img src="http://www.themoneytimes.com/files/imagecache/picturethumb/Google%20Nexus%207.jpg" alt="Google Nexus 7" title="Google Nexus 7" class="imagecache imagecache-picturethumb imagecache-default imagecache-picturethumb_default" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-box"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Salient features of Google Nexus 7</p> <p>1.

The retro icon features the same power-trains, namely a 140 hp 2.0-liter turbo-diesel inline-four, 170 hp 2.5-liter inline-five and 200 hp 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-four.</p> <p>There are two transmission modes available: six speed DSG dual-clutch automated and six speed manual transmission. However, only six speed automatic transmission is available in the I-5 version.</p> <p>The focus on safety for passengers is enhanced as Head-thorax airbags have been installed for front passengers. Two roll bars have been positioned to set off from behind the seats in case of a rollover. </p> <p><strong>Distinction of sorts</strong><br /> Wonder what is unique about 2013 Beetle Convertible? Well, it is the only diesel convertible currently being sold in the US. This makes it a darling for the green car enthusiasts and will definitely give a fillip to biodiesel conversion efforts. </p> <p>Though it has a size advantage over its competitors namely Mini Cooper Convertible and Fiat 500C, the driving experience is bit tardy when compared with them. </p> <p>Another point worth noting is that convertibles being less aerodynamic than hatchbacks, the 2013 Convertible is bit slower than its hatchback counterparts. </p> <p>The Beetle cars have a definite advantage over Mini Cooper when it comes to acceleration. It zooms from 0 to 60 mph in 8.0 seconds while Mini Cooper does that in 8.9 seconds. The same holds true for the convertible versions of both the models. </p> <p>It beats Cooper Convertible hands down as far as fuel economy is concerned. On the highway it gives 41 mpg while the former is good for around 35 mpg and the 500 cc even lower. </p> <p><strong>Overall</strong><br /> All in all, Volkswagen has a winner of sorts in the form of upgraded 2013 Beetle Convertible. It is likely to interest car lovers, especially those concerned about the environment, all over the US. </p> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img src="http://www.themoneytimes.com/files/imagecache/picturethumb/2013-Volkswagen-Beetle-Convertible-front-1024x640.jpg" alt="" title="" class="imagecache imagecache-picturethumb imagecache-default imagecache-picturethumb_default" width="180" height="180" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-box"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Salient features of Volkswagen 2013 Beetle Convertible:</p> <p>1.
