128 GB Variant Of iPad 4 Announced

In a press release, Apple announced that its 4th-gen iPad will now come with 128 GB of internal storage. This new 128 GB variant will be available from 5th February. It will cost $799 for the iPad with Wi-Fi version & Wi-Fi + Cellular model at $929. 

There are storage devices (like Seagate Satellite) already available in the market which wirelessly
connects to your iPad and offer large amount of space to store data. Not only that, you can use the same storage device to connect to PC, Laptop etc. But overall, its a pretty decent step taken by Apple to attract customers towards iPad and choose it over others.

Now with Apple offering iPad with 128 GB of storage, it will be interesting to see if they do the same with iPhone.

which gives us the hint that the unthetered jailbreak could be out on Sunday.

Remove Unwanted Call Logs From Your Samsung Smart Phone Using Samsung Log Converter

If you have a Samsung Smartphone having Android you must have faced a major glitch of unnecessary logs in your log menu. These futile logs contains stuffs like SMS, MMS, SNS, IM and email appearing all on the logs screen. I know Samsung has tried to show off it's lucrative smartphone feature in all way by including multiple logs feature but that may not be very useful practically.

I mean it really makes stuffs more complicated when you always wanted to use logs as only as logs. Just for checking dialed, missed and received calls as always. Well there is an app for most of the things you needed the way you want. 

A free app written by "Noah Seidman" called "Samsung Log Converter 4.0+" solves this problem and make your log very simple just showing the calls logs. The best part about this app is you don't need to change various settings to block other notifications on the log. Just installing it makes all other logs disappear. 

Get it for free now on Market for free.

If you have any questions please let us know in our comment section.

Book My Show Now Working Properly On Nokia Lumia 920 & Lumia 820

Book My Show,as we all know,  is a very famous website which is used for booking movie tickets, event tickets etc. It made life simpler when they released it for all popular mobile platforms like iOS, Android and 'Windows Phone'. 

While this app runs smoothly on almost all demanding windows phone 7 devices with window's beautiful interface, it was quiet a disappointment when users found it not working on Nokia's much awaited smartphones, ie, Lumia 920 & Lumia 820 running Windows Phone 8.   

Well, then came an update from Microsoft yesterday which seems to fix this problem and the app is now working properly on Windows Phone 8 (Lumia 920 atleast). Check the screenshots below :

The update was quiet small which brings us to the conclusion that Microsoft released it so that all Windows Phone 7 applications will now be supported by Windows Phone 8 too.

Windows Phone WhatsApp Bug

Windows Phone is undoubtedly becoming famous day by day. Microsoft has provided users with a completely different mobile interface to play with. Well, I recently got my hands on Nokia Lumia 920 and trust me it's freaking awesome!! 

Now, like any normal user I too installed Whatsapp and was pretty impressed with the UI. Then, I thought why not explore the music player on this thing and as soon as I opened it I saw 'paused' button showing up. But Wait!! I never dumped any music on this thing so out of curiosity I tapped on it. Guess What!!?? From nowhere 'Whatsapp popped up'!! Strange!! It seems to happen all the time I tap on that 'paused' button. It seems any undefined space left on Windows phone opens up 'Whatsapp'. Check out the video below.


 Well, Microsoft should resolve this issue as fast as possible because users are not liking it at all.

"Facebook Graph search" Is It Good Or Creepy,Girls beware !!

Last week Facebook announced it's Graph search and all expected it to legen...dary,but is it really that awesome ?? I was one of the few who registered for the beta version and so i got an opportunity to explore this feature and trust me it's good and bad because it can get really creepy !!

When i logged it into in my Facebook account today,I got a notification and I was guided and given a tour of this graph search which I will show you in a sequence in these photos.

You will see certain changes like your home buttons are shifted to right and graph search option is on the Left.I think it's time for you change your privacy settings and take matters seriously especially for girls.
No doubt Facebook has done an awesome job because it shows quite accurate results and it's algorithm is just right .

I will show you certain examples How Good or Bad it Can get !!

First when you click on search you will get some customized search options like this as shown in the image.

It will automatically retrieve some of the predefined search just as the Google search does and when i click on the "who work in Hackinthus" in the second choice,I get a perfect result.

Now let me show you the ugly Part !

What if I search for Married people who like prostitutes.You can see more than 1000 people,wait that's not it now you can narrower your search by selecting different criteria as shown in the next image.  

 Now what if I search for My female friends who are single and you can see a whole lot of options that Facebook has worked out for me.Now isn't that creepy ??

It actually depends on how people use it and for what  purpose they are using it for.I will say Facebook has just done an awesome job with this.

My personal request to all girls to please got to their privacy setting and make certain changes about what you want to show about yourself and what not .

The saying might not be right but it’s hard to look at something like the newly launched Facebook Graph search, and not feel like the whole of your being has been stripped down.

iPhone 5S May Feature Mixture Of Both iPad mini & iPod Touch Design

We all are excited about iPhone 5S and there are lots and lots of rumors about it's features like fingerprint reader, different colors and about it's build factor. Well, what we have here is a design concept by Alexander Kormishin (alexkormi@icloud.com) which looks like a mixture of iPad mini's build quality and iPod touch's colors. 

Chances are negligible about Apple releasing iPhone 5S in so many colors but who knows!!

HTC Sense 5 UI Leaked Screenshots

Android is undoubtedly the most customizable  mobile OS. One can change theme, add widgets, customize boot screen  and much more. This allows manufacturers to build a unique theme which reflects their UI. And the most popular among all, till now, is HTC's Sense UI

While Sense 5 is not yet out to users, XDA's developer, mdeejay, believes he has the new sense UI, from which he is frequently providing teasers to the XDA community(Refer link below).

Sense 5 will be HTC's upcoming UI and we are expecting it to be out during MWC(Mobile World Congress) 2013 next month.

Mozilla Firefox OS Gets It's First Two Smartphones! Is this the Next Big thing?

Did you ever notice how Android sneaked in Mobile Technology and later captured reasonable amount of market share. Maybe someone would have never ever thought how these small innovation changed the whole scenario, you know what i am talking! Today when we look around while opting any mobile phone we also check it's OS which suits us the best indeed why not if i am a mid-level cell phone user buying too expensive high end smartphone is just a waste of money. While we may be attached to iOS or Android we may ever have looked around why?
    Well that's not we are bothered here we are looking for maybe the next big thing or you can say gonna-be. Yes, It's about Mozilla Firefox OS. It was recently under development and significantly even ready. Truly speaking if you look around the competition that exist today, it stands nowhere. However, until now Mozilla has confirmed that they will not work for any Hardware for their OS and they will depend upon other vendors. So today it's out they have teamed up with a Spanish start-up company Geeksphone to offer pair of developer devices.

The devices having Mozilla Firefox OS will be called Keon and Peak. Certainly these devices are meant for developers and look beyond the way mobile technology are these day and compete with existing giants Android and iOS.

Given Mozilla’s focus on emerging markets, it’s Keon, the entry-level device, that the company appears to be pushing most. Powered by a single-core 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S1 processor, the device sports a 3.5-inch HVGA (480×320) display, 512MB of RAM, and 4GB of internal storage. It also offers a 3-megapixel rear-facing camera, and a microSD card slot.

Peak is a little more advanced, packing a 4.3-inch qHD display with a 960×540 resolution, and a dual-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor. It also offers 512MB of RAM, 4GB of internal storage, and two cameras: an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera, and a 2-megapixel front-facing camera.

Prior to it's public release Mozilla is aiming for developers to test the OS not for the consumers so that the development takes place. Shipping of these devices are not yet confirmed neither it's price.

After the launch of Firefox OS it will just like Android Open Source platform that any third party mobile phone manufacturers can adopt.

Hackinthus At The #originalcopy In Association With Indiblogger,HP and Harper collins !!

Yet another awesome meet by indiblogger in association with HP,I have to say it was quite better than the last meet #NokiaAppTasting for a simple reason that we had ample amount of time for interaction with fellow bloggers than the last one which was a Nokia meet rather than a bloggers meet though it was not as fancy as Nokia's meet.

As the name suggests #originalcopy,the main agenda of this meet was to encourage people to buy original Hp printer cartridges rather than getting it refilled.It was quite well explained by a member of HP saying when you pay for an original you get quality and guarantee,that's quite true whether be it shoes or merchandise.

Panoramic view of the meet at Park JP Celestial
The meet started 2:30 what the hell,we kept on waiting for an hour or so and Anoop took no hesitation on putting the blame on us saying your fellow bloggers were late and so we started late,God help that guy :P.

But no soon it started it was Fun for me atleast the first thing which Anoop says "Any Guy with a Turban" and I win a HP 8GB pen drive.There are benefits of being a sardar sometimes :P.

After this we were told to switch tables and not to sit with people we were sitting with and move  to a black table if we were on white and vice-versa,this was actually a good idea to meet the people you never met we were then asked to say hi to the bloggers sitting next to you and then began a long session of introduction and the best intro would get a HP printer and yeah not to forget you had mimic your favorite character and even this time I was not called :(.

Then we had too many fun events like mime,photoshoot,debate and a unique competition where you were given a White sheet with a QR code,you had to scan it look,for the code written and you had to carry it on your back to find people who had other codes which completes your sentence.

                                                        White sheet with the QR code

I even made some friends with whom I participated in the Photo shoot comp and din't win anything.The photo had a very deep meaning for one to understand.I hope you all know the three monkeys of Gandhi,the fourth monkey depicts "STOP RAPE".

Then we had a little snacks some fun and returned home.I have a lot to talk about but let's keep it short and wind up.

Overall the event was a great success and had a very important message which was said in one of the Tweets pointed by Anoop."Plagiarism to us is Forfeit to them".

So never go for a refill of cartridges because it may ruin your Printer and may coz you more money which you were trying to save.Always buy Original HP Cartridges .

Samsung VP Confirms Galaxy Note 8.0 Tab To Be Unveiled Next Month At MWC Barcelona

Image Source: news1
Lately, Samsung Vice-President JK Shin has confirmed to a news website news1 that Galaxy Note 10.1 little brother Galaxy Note 8.0 will be unveiled in Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next month. However this was lately in rumor these days but finally the official from Samsung has himself confirmed about the release. SamMobile has also leaked some of it's specification and is a trusted source to rely on, however it's nothing official yet about the specs.

Here is the list of specs we know so far :-

Code name: KONA
Android version: 4.2 Jelly Bean
Official name: GALAXY Note 8.0 (3G, Wi-Fi)
Product codes: GT-N5100, GT-N5110
Battery: 4600 mAh
Dimension: 211.3×136.3×7.95 mm , 330 gram.
Display: 8.0”1280×800 TFT (Super Clear LCD)
GSM networks: EDGE (850/900/1800/1900) HSPA+21.1Mbps, HSUPA 5.76Mbps (850/900/1900/2100)
Camera: 5 Megapixel (BACK)
Camera: 1.3 megapixel (FRONT)
Processor: 1.6 quad-core processor
RAM + Storage: 2GB (RAM) + 16/32GB (optional) + micro-SD (up to 32GB)
Connections: BT 4.0, USB 2.0, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, A-GPS

It looks like Samsung is trying to compete with the latest iPad Mini around in market but as we are not sure about the specs we can't compare anything much. But seems a good move for Samsung. As for the Galaxy S IV, that won’t be unveiled at MWC — as we suspected — but it will be arriving “soon,” Shin said.

SamMobile has also received a tip on their website which looks like the Note 8.0

Anything to say? Let us know in our comment section.

iOS 6/6.0.1 Untethered Jailbreak Now Worked By Pod2G And Planetbeing

Everyone owning iPhone 5 must have their iOS as iOS 6/6.0.1 and also the people who have upgraded their iOS are impatiently waiting for the untethered jailbreak. As we know, untethered jailbreak is normally a permanent jailbreak for iPhone unlike tethered jailbreak which requires tethering it again and again when the device turns off. Tethering is much required for iPhone users in various aspects whether you want cracked apps or you want to unlock your device. No doubt it's use is huge but the hackers have kept us waiting for long and we always look for untether updates from various iOS jail-breakers or what we call them iOS hackers. Recently the progress on iOS 6/6.0.1 was covered here.

According to the tweets, Planetbeing was working on the development of iOS 6/6.0.1 untether jailbreak. Last Friday, he spent with famous iOS security researcher Pod2G figuring out the way of iOS jailbreak.

Made some nice progress today with @pod2g. I think I’ll try to reward myself with a nap.
This morning, Pod2g, who was previously busy with setting up his own company called 2G Lab, tweeted this in response to Planetbeing’s tweet, confirming that he too is now actively involved in making untethered jailbreak for iOS 6.
@planetbeing oh yeah! 2 new vulnerabilities in a day, chance was with us. But we still miss that initial code execution for a public jb :/

What tweets from today suggests that all they are missing now is an initial code execution for a public jailbreak. It is important to note here that iOS 6.1 release is just around the corner. The dev teams involved in iOS 6 jailbreak will likely wait for Apple to release iOS 6.1 before releasing any untether tool for newer devices.

For people waiting for untether iOS 6/6.0.1 this is pretty good news as two of the famous iOS hackers have been spending their time on this.

Facebook Announced It's Own Search Engine

At Facebook's much awaited event, the company's CEO Mark Zuckerberg introduced Graph Search, a fresh social search engine which will compete with existing ones.
Unlike others, Graph Search does not index the web: as Facebook says, it quite simply does not need to, since the Open Graph platform already has access to “Almost a million new people every day. 240 billion photos. 1 billion people. 1 trillion connections.” Instead of using familiar search engine to look for result, Graph Search makes it really easy to search through your friend’s interests, in order to provide results that might be expecting.

Lets take an example, if you search for "Movies", it will get you list of those movies that most of your friends have 'liked' on Facebook.

Graph Search also works the other way around, means finding users in your friends list that match a specific interest. Like, you can search for "Friends who like Assassin's Creed".

And not to worry about privacy at all : no information can be searched unless you make it available to users.In addition to it, new privacy settings have been introduced in case users wish to hide any of their data from being searched. 

Incase Graph Search doesn't show up any results, Bing is integrated to show web results.

Beta version of Graph Search is currently being rolled out only to a small set of users running Facebook in US English. However, Facebook is inviting those who are interested to join the waiting list at: facebook.com/graphsearch.
