iCloud and iWork Beta Review and Price

Apple has now updated its with a new official login page that’s built onto a virtual machined aluminum unibody badge. Those of you rocking iOS 5 or 10.7.2 and who’ve also created an iCloud account are probably already busy frolicking through email, editing contacts and slinging calendar events all from the comfort of your browser. A screenshot from MacRumors also shows the addition of an iWork section, which we’d surmise means the previously siloed iWork beta now has a new place to call home.

And if you’re wondering how much it’ll cost you to claim more than those 5GB that Apple’s tossing in gratis, the folks over at Electronista have confirmed that an extra 10GB will cost $20 per year, while an extra 20GB runs $40 / year and an extra 50GB will demand $100 per annum.

Research in Motion (RIM) has announced the Blackberry Messenger 6.0, a significant update that takes one of the smartphone’s most popular apps and turns it from being just an instant messaging app into a social platform for other applications. This spring, RIM showed some of the capabilities of the new BBM at the BlackBerry World, and while it may not cause so much excitement for developers to make BlackBerry apps, it sure will benefit those who do.

Toshiba Qosmio F750 glasses-free 3D laptop,review and price

Toshiba is rapidly increasing their growth in the field of 3D gears and glasses-free 3D displays. Toshiba just unveiled what it claims is the world's first glasses-free 3D laptop, the Qosmio F750. It's a heavy-set beast dedicated to gaming and movies, with a 15.6-inch Full HD lenticular screen that can display 2D and 3D simultaneously in separate windows. It also rocks an HD webcam that follows your movements and adjusts the 3D effect accordingly, so you can peek at the that lovely third dimension from almost any angle you like. Innovative stuff indeed, but we were underwhelmed when we caught a glimpse of Toshiba's concept model back in January.

The Toshiba Qosmio F750 has a lenticular lens sheet display which makes slightly different images to be seen by the left and the right eye, thus creating the 3D effect. The laptop also has an HD webcam which further enhances the 3D formation.

It runs on a high performance Intel Core i7 Sandy Bridge processor, comes packed with a 640GB hard drive, 6GB DDR3 RAM, nVidia GeForce 540M graphics, a Blu-ry XL optical drive, WiFi, Bluetooth 3.0, two USB 2.0 ports and one USB 3.0 port. It has a screen size of 15.6 inches and comes in dimensions of 380.55 x 254 x 37.6 mm.

It is however not perfect for 3D gameplays. As it requires you to sit without any movement to watch 3D graphics, it will not be ideal for displaying 3D graphics for gaming because gamers are used to shaking their heads and body during gaming!

The Qosmio F750 will be available from August 2011, and it’ll likely be priced around $2,100 USD.

Samsung Galaxy S II Could Also Be Sprint Bound

Ok, we agree that the image here is not all that clear, but the body of the phone, its noticeably jarring rear cover, and somewhat inverted base are blabbermouth signs of Samsung’s Galaxy S II model.

This image is one of the images that show Sprint marking on the handset. The image of the handset also clearly displays the 8 megapixel camera of the handset, which also is a major highlight for the Samsung Galaxy S II.

Though, this model is an unofficial model and is pretty much like the unlocked device that we saw, everything else here is different enough suggesting that Samsung will be following the same game plan for their Galaxy S series, which is launching similar, but not all that same products for different carriers.

For instance, this particular device is curved than the unlocked variant of the handset that we saw, from the bends of its body to the housing of camera and the volume rocker given on the left hand side seems to be a lot lumpier metallic component, than Samsung’s Galaxy S II’s skinny dark plastic strip.

Though, we haven’t got the confirmed details for the handset, but its pretty sure that Samsung will be launching the Samsung Galaxy S II, especially considering the huge success that the device is getting in Europe.


Windows 8 will have same requirements as Windows 7

Upgrading from one version of Windows to another is not an easy process, especially if you have an old hardware that needs to be upgraded. Since this is quite the problem for many people, Microsoft have decided to go easy with Windows 8 requirements.

As you remember, many people didn’t switch from XP to Vista due to the high system demands of Vista, but it seems that Microsoft has learned its lesson from all of this. According to Microsoft, hardware requirements from the upcoming operating system, Windows 8, won’t be higher than those of Windows 7, so you’re able to run Windows 7, you’ll be able to run Windows 8 on your system without problems. As for Windows 7 requirements, they are 1GHz processor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of hard disk space, and DirectX 9 graphics.

Although Windows 8 will be able to run on your current system, it’s certain that you’ll have better experience if you’re running Windows 8 on a latest hardware. In addition, Microsoft has added a certain level of intelligence to Windows 8, so it will adapt to the user experience based on the hardware of the user, so you’ll get the most of Windows 8 without upgrading.
