Another iPhone 5 design concept surfaces on the web by Antoine Brieux from NAK Studio which won’t surprise me a lot when it comes this fall. Apple must change the iPhone 5 design to bring a great number of customers as most of people now have an iPhone 4 and it’s very good.

The concept makes the iPhone 5 much simpler than older products as it’s a one body of metal edged off with two pieces of curved glass. Have fun with the gallery below:

Awesome, isn’t it?

Have you been invited to Google+? Well, I’ve already been invited and I think it’s awesome but Facebook gonna do something about this. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has today announced that Facebook is about to launch something awesome next week, Reuter reports.

Chief Executive and founder Mark Zuckerberg told reporters in a visit to Facebook’s Seattle office on Wednesday that the company planned to “launch something awesome” next week.

He said the project had been developed at the 40-person Seattle office, Facebook’s only major engineering center outside of its Palo Alto, California headquarters.

Reuters suggests that it may be the much-much-waited Facebook app for iPad. It could be also the photo-sharing app, something like Instagram or PicPlz. Reuters asked Facebook to comment but they prefered to keep this things private. May be a dislike button?

Thoughts?

Google is doing great efforts to satisfy its users and here’s something it’s doing right now. Google is officially pushing new GMail interface. Thanks to Google’s users’ feedback, they could launch a new interface with two new themes to try out as a sort of sneak peek at what we’re up to.

Here’s what one of the new themes currently looks like:


And in conversation view:

 

Starting today, you’ll see the “Preview” and “Preview (Dense)” themes in the Themes tab in Gmail Settings. Why two themes? Our new interface will eventually expand dynamically to accommodate different screen sizes and user preferences, but until then you can pick the information density that you prefer.

To try it now, simply go to Gmail Settings, click on the Themes tab and select “Preview” or “Preview (Dense)” as your theme to try this yourself then tell us what do you think?

Are you surprised? Yes that’s right we have got some news that the most-famous hacker Geohot behind LimeRa1n jailbreak tool which still used till our day to jailbreak iOS devices. Anyway he dissapeard for some time but today we found that George Hotz (aka Geohot) is actually working for Facebook since May, but why do you think Geohot is working for Facebook? Check Geohot Facebook profile below:


The come-back of Geohot to Facebook amazed all the Dev-Team members and especially P0sixninja who made a video talking about the come-back of Geohot again. Surprisingly, you can’t add Geohot on Facebook as there’s no “Add as a Friend” button. Interesting, isn’t it?

Now give us your thoughts about what kind of work is he doing for Facebook?

 

As Richard Nixon destroyed happiness with his war on drugs, the 1970’s saw the world’s first personal computers, inspiring five geeks to start a pair of companies which would go on to shape the future of computing as we know it.

In January of 1975 Bill Gates and Paul Allen called up Micro Instrumentation and Telemetry Systems claiming to have a working BASIC interpreter for the MITS Altair 8800 microcomputer. While that claim was entirely fictitious, it took Gates and Allen just two months to create the product they claimed to already have.

With the interpreter working flawlessly, MITS agreed to distribute the software under the name Altair BASIC. Microsoft was officially established just one month later, on April 4th, 1975. After launching their first Disk Operating System (DOS) in 1980 Microsoft quickly began to grow into one of the biggest names in personal computing.

Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak and Ronald Wayne founded their company, Apple, on April 1st 1976, just short of one year after the inception of Microsoft. Unlike Microsoft, who chose to focus on operating systems for other people’s hardware, Apple began their business by selling bare-bones hand-built computer kits, named the Apple I.

After Wayne sold his shares of the company to the Steve’s for just $800, Apple incorporated on January 3rd, 1977. With the backing of Multi-millionaire Mike Markkula, Apple Computers Inc. had the funding it needed to develop the most advanced personal computer to date, the Apple II (launched on April 16th 1977).

With color graphics and an open architecture, the Apple II set the course for personal computing, beginning the battle for dominance of what soon proved to be one of the biggest un-tapped markets in history.

99% of Computer users either use Apple’s Mac OS X or Microsoft’s Windows but let’s see which is older and which is better. The below infographic by Manolution shows you the history of Computing in the last 30 years and shows a great time-fighting between Apple and Microsoft. Have fun.

A year back, Gmail started letting users drop images from their desktop right into the compose window.

“Now, when you are running the latest version of Google Chrome, you can paste images right from your clipboard too,” Google announced.

“So if you copy an image from the web or another email, you can paste it right into your message. This is especially handy for passing around screenshots — you don’t have to save the files any more (I have been using Ctrl-C on my windows to save screenshots directly to the clipboard). While this currently only works in Chrome, we hope to enable it on other browsers soon,” Google added.

Facebook now enabled IPv6

Posted: June 8, 2011 in Internet!, News

Facebook’s Donn Lee has been getting the social network ready for this first worldwide test flight of IPv6 since last fall when plans for the June 8 event were put in place. Wednesday is the day that the giants of the InternetGoogle, Yahoo, Microsoft, Verizon and Facebook – will give IPv6 a whirl and see how it works.

Lee, who came up with the idea for World IPv6 Day with Google network engineer Lorenzo Colitti, said he’s confident all will go well and he’s not expecting any surprises.

“I’m completely excited,” Lee told Computerworld. “It’s grown into a life of its own from our initial idea that we had in the hallways of a conference last summer. Seeing all the excitement and energy around this day is immensely rewarding. This is when the Internet enters into the next stage of its expansion.”

IPv4 is the Internet’s main communications protocol, but it is quickly running out of unique IP addresses for all the computers, smartphones and other devices that need to be hooked up to the Internet. Hence, the development of an upgrade — IPv6, which is said to provide more than 4 billion times more addresses than IPv4.

Some people worry that migrating to IPv6 will be time consuming and expensive. World IPv6 Day is designed to test IPv6 and see how well it works. Internet users on Wednesday can think of themselves as test pilots.

Participating companies will flip the switch at 8 p.m. EDT Tuesday.

“This is going to be like opening night,” Lee said. “It’s a 24-hour test. We’ll turn it off after 24 hours. Most participants will… We think we’ve covered all our bases.”

He added that the participants have been going through “dress rehearsals” and he’s confident that most Facebook users won’t see any difference in the site’s performance Wednesday.

“We’ve already done some very comprehensive tests and simulations here and we have not had any effects to Facebook users,” Lee said. “We’ve tested users to see what their IPv6 and IPV4 connectivity is. We’ve been collecting data for many months. We pretty sure that our data is sound.”

Lee, who previously worked at Google and Cisco Systems, said a handful of Facebook engineers have been working on updating the company’s network so they can run a dual stack, which means running both IPv4 and IPv6 at the same time.

The site will check a user’s system and if it supports IPv6, it will use IPv6 for the first time. Most people don’t have IPv6 and will fall back to IPV4.

Lee figures that 0.2% of Facebook’s more than 500 million users are capable of using IPv6 at home or at work. That’s 1 million users.

He also contends that 99.97% of users will see no difference whatsoever. The other 0.03% can probably expect some slowdowns because of bugs either in their own systems or on the larger networks.

For Facebook, getting ready for Wednesday’s test has been in the works for months.

Lee said most of their efforts were focused on the company’s software, specifically, making code changes. “Most of our costs were having software engineers go through our code,” he added. “Where it expected a legacy address to now expect and support an IPv6 address.”

He said he didn’t know how much the migration cost Facebook.

The Internet is our business,” Lee added. “As far as we can tell, the future of the Internet is important not just to us but to all Internet companies. There aren’t really good solutions when you run out of addresses. I believe that IPv6 is the answer to the future of the Internet.”
