Our brothers and sisters over at Engadget are holding their first red hot, super exciting conference called Expand in SF in March. The event will feature all the boring old commercial hardware you could imagine, including the latest from all the hardware greats but, more important, they’re also reaching out to a contingent dear to my heart: crowdfunded gadgets.Having a brilliant idea isn’t always enough. Bringing a product to market requires support, marketing and above all, funding. Lots and lots of funding – but don’t worry, we might be able to help you get there.Engadget is proud to announce the launch of Insert Coin: New Challengers, a new competition aimed at helping to make those dream gadgets a reality. If you’ve seen our long-running series about the most promising crowd funded hardware, you can imagine that concept taken to the stage for a live competition between the best of the best new inventions.
Remember: this is for unlaunched products only and, knowing the field, this will be pretty competitive, so those with solid sterling-silver iPad stands will have to take a seat. If you’re ready to run with the big dogs, pop over here and submit and let us know how it goes. You know I love the smell of fresh crowdfunded projects in the morning.
A new patent application from Apple spotted by Patently Apple describes a modification to the OS X dock that combines elements of the iBooks shelves it uses in iOS devices with Launchpad to provide quicker access to more apps from a user’s desktop. The application, filed in May 2011, could be an indicator of how Apple is thinking about changes to OS X’s current app launching tools for upcoming iterations of its desktop OS.
The patent describes a multi-level dock, that resembles the 3D bookshelf-type interface it uses for iBooks and Newsstand in its graphic renditions. The feature would be optionally configurable, and would feature quite a few more apps than it’s possible to include in the dock. The dock could be configured using a settings tool available when it’s fully extended, and there are also sort tools described in the patent for arranging the elements it contains according to different criteria, or for searching for the app you’re looking for.
The app drawer concept actually has a lot of benefits over the Launchpad feature Apple introduced in OS X Lion. It sounds like it might be a little more useful to the concurrent computing model of the desktop environment where you’re running multiple apps at the same time in side-by-side windows. Still, it also seems to have some of the skeuomorphic design elements that departing Apple iOS chief Scott Forstall was known for, so I have to wonder if we’ll ever see it make it into shipping products, at least as described in this patent. Still, it does represent an alternative to the traditional Finder file system, which is something Apple seems to want to move away from.
If there’s anything really worth taking away here, though, it’s the usefulness of those auto-sorting and search features. Launchpad now has a dedicated search bar, but the other features, including easy sorting and labels that could classify files and apps in different rows on the 3D dock would genuinely benefit usability, albeit at the expense of simplicity. Rumors are flying that we’ll see Apple’s OS X 10.9 sometime next year, however, so we shouldn’t have to wait too long to see if any of these concepts become reality.Related Posts:
Apple is reportedly looking into ways to replace its Intel processors in Macs with new chips based on the designs it uses for its iOS-based devices. The company has previously been rumored to be contemplating such a move, but Bloomberg reports today that Apple’s engineers are now more confident in their underlying chip designs and the ability of those designs to power Mac desktops and notebooks.
Bloomberg has reported similar planned changes in the past, in a retrospective reflecting on the year since Steve Jobs’ death. And around a year ago there were rumors that it was looking at alternatives to Intel as well. The hurdles involved include making sure that software works on Macs based on the new processors; when Apple went from PowerPC to Intel, the transition left a lot of legacy software incompatible and led to transition issues around porting software.
Apple would also have to be extremely confident in their new chipmaking powers in order to drop Intel, and this isn’t likely something we’ll see happen overnight, even now that they’ve achieved greater maturity with their mobile efforts. I’d expect Apple to deliver new architecture alongside a significant OS update, maybe an evolution that finally carries us out of the OS X generation.
Apple designs based on ARM designs would enable the company to create hardware that theoretically runs cooler with less significant power demands, and would make it easier to get OS X and iOS closer together (it seems to be wanting to do just that with its recent executive rearrangement) in terms of cross-compatibility of software and code. But unlike Microsoft, Apple is taking the long-view approach to that unification of platforms. So again, it seems like we’ll probably not see this make its way to actual shipping products for a while, but it’ll be a huge shift for all involved (Apple, users, developers and especially Intel) if it does come to pass.Related Posts:
Definitely the droid I was looking for — get it? Because I like beer so much. Just kidding, I’ve never had a sip in my life. I’m lying. Or am I? I’m an enigma. An enigma wrapped in a baby blanket surrounded by a cloud of B.O. This is an LSU themed R2-D2 kegerator spotted at a tailgate during this weekend’s game against Washington. Based on the extension cord leading out of the thing, it looks like it’s plugged into a dog. Personally, I think that’s just as noteworthy as the actual kegerator itself.
Hit the jump for a video of R2 dispensing a beer.
Microsoft’s Bill Cox, senior director of Windows Phone marketing communications, has reacted to the Samsung vs. Apple verdict today. Moments after the jury awarded $ 1.05 billion in damages to Apple for Samsung’s violation of various software, hardware design patents, and trade-dress dilution, Cox tweeted that “Windows Phone is looking gooooood right now.”

Samsung failed to win any damages from its Apple patent counter-suit after the jury determined that no monetary damages are owed for its claims. Samsung had claimed that Apple violated five patents with the iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, and others. Today’s verdict is a big win for Apple, although the…
This is a waaaaaay too realistic looking albino snake cake from North Star Cakes in England. I was pretty sure it was Photoshopped at first, but there’s a bunch of closeups after the jump (including one of the thing actually cut up), and it’s definitely real. Now call me old fashioned, but I still like my cakes plain and round — not like something my first reaction to is to scream and poke with a broom handle. *ahem* I’m looking at you, Mom! (She made me a giant spider cake one year)
Hit the jump for a bunch more eshots, including one of the insides (SPOILER: no mice, thank God).
Panasonic’s financial year runs from summer to summer, so its first-quarter results for 2013 has just hit the wire. The figures proudly show that the company has managed to turn around the losses it suffered so badly in the previous period — with $ 23 billion in turnover generating a tidy profit of $ 164 million. While sales dropped by six percent compared to the first three months of the year, it’s been reducing fixed costs and restructuring each segment of the business to ensure a return to profit making despite the worsening financial crisis in Europe. The company’s even been able to stick some cash into the savings account, tucking $ 16.6 million into the piggy bank for a rainy day.

iPod Nano straps have been around for a year or so now and they’ve been approximately exciting as tying a string to an iPod Classic and hanging it around your waist. Here’s something completely different. The Syre is a Bluetooth-enabled Nano watch case that transmits the audio wirelessly to compatible headphones. That’s right – no more looking like a weirdo with headphone cables sticking out of your wrist.
No battery specs but the entire watch encases the Nano, protecting the headphone port and jack from water and perspiration. It has a built-in battery.
The case, created by Anyé Spivey, is about to launch as a Kickstarter project but you can check it out now right here. They’re going to sell the watches with Bluetooth for $ 50 and they’re aiming for $ 75,000 in funding before they manufacture.Related Posts:
