A busy week for companies, hardware and software alike. Although software took the abundant announcement share. We got iOS 7, BlackBerry Messenger, Cyanogenmod and Google Hummingbird to just name a few. Let’s give this article a twist – No long paragraphs, just short,crisp sentences which convey the same information as those long thesis you would find on other websites.
—- Google’s new Bird—-
Google announced a new search logarithm to make those long search queries be answered better. So expect better search results for those humungous questions of yours. And all this on Google’s 15th Birthday!
—- Cyanogenmod goes Cyanogenmod Inc. —–
Sometime back I had written an article on Rooting (http://rajnitech.wordpress.com/2013/07/04/android-back-to-the-basics/), in that I had mentioned custom roms, well the king of Custom Roms CyanogenMod – Just became a company after getting 7Million$ in funding. It also teamed up with Oppo to put Cyanogenmod in their latest best offering the Oppo N1 (more on this later).
—- New iOS causes ripples —-
The day Apple released the new iOS it caused a social outburst. All of my feeds were filled with people posting about how they love the new iOS or how they can’t download it. iOS 7 cover here: (http://rajnitech.wordpress.com/2013/06/11/june-10-11-technology-parade-part-1/) And now the apps in the App Store are being updated. Instagram, Facebook, Twitter to name a few have been updated and they look jaw-dropping. Wondering why didn’t Android get these flat-designed apps yet, either ways, loads of apps are being flattened and given the iOS7 look. Hoping Android gets the same treatment soon as well.
—- BlackBerry Messenger Crisis —-
Blackberry was supposed to launch the highly awaited BBM for Android on 21st September and for iOS on 22nd September. However a leaked Android app led to it postponing the launch. They patched the leaked app for Android and the officially released app for iOS was brought down. However the people who downloaded it from the App Store could continue to use it. BlackBerry says they got about 1.1Million users in 8 hours which is simply mind-blowing.
—- Grand Theft Auto lives by it’s name? —-
Grand Theft Auto, the most expensive game of all-time, expensive than all other Hollywood movies except the Pirates of the Carribean Series, costed 270Million$ to develop. However the franchise, probably the most awaited and most fan-based game ever, grossed a billion dollars only in 3 days. Rockstar has a great winner with them, which in my opinion is going to be the winner of every game award out there, be it gameplay or graphics, GTA V delivers nothing but the best and hey it’s GTA, I mean who doesn’t love GTA?
