Sony Lifelog App is out!

The very anticipated Sony Lifelog App, which is a companion to Sony Smartband SWR10 was released yesterday and it is now availabe on Android Market.
I've been able to install the App on my Sony Xperia Z ultra, and Xperia Z2. For my Samsung Note 3 however, despite having the latest Android 4.4, the app is not available to download yet.
The Smartband itself is only available in a handful of online stores at the moment. Sony's website has pushed back the release date to the begining of May, although you can pre-order it right now. It is worth noting that when I placed my pre-order in March, it clearly stated the begining of April for the shipping rather than May.

Jon Philips at TechHive did a first-hand unboxing review of the product last week, though the App hadn't been released back then. Now that the App is availabe, I'm sure he'll be the first one to add more details on the Smartband functionality with thorough review of the Lifelog App soon.
For now, here are a few screen shots of the Sony Lifelog App taken on Sony Xperia Z Ultra.

And here's a screen shot taken in landscape mode

This App is amazing and defienitely is the one I've been looking for a long time.

It lets you open 4 differnet webpages, notes, dropbox, PDF files or a combination of those side by side.

Here comes the long-awaited Samsung Galaxy Note 2 !!

Today at this very moment, Samsung announced the most creative semi-tablet sized phone (or let's say Phablet)  the Samsung Galaxy Note 2. Galaxy Note 2 ,like its predecessor Galaxy Note which was launched last year, integrates a stylus or what Samsung calls the 'SPEN'. SPEN is a great stylus to input handwriting as well as providing the ability to crop and paste pictures or texts amongst different applications. Note-taking is a great experience using the SPEN and that's what made the galaxy note a huge success.

It comes with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean,  massive 2GB Ram, 5.5' Display  and 1.6 GHz quad-core processor and operates on both 3G and 4G LTE.

Can't wait to get my hands on it!!

Retina Display MacBook Pro

Apple announced a couple of product upgrades yesterday and despite many rumours, there was neither a Mini 7inch iPad nor was any iPhone 5!!

The old version of MacBook Pro had been around for quite sometime and it was time to be re-decorated with some new features. Not that there was anything missing in the previous version, but users had been impatiently anticipating to see a possibly slimmer body and a better display with some sort of anti-glaring layer like the ones on MacBook Air.(that's what annoys me most)

On the first day of WWDC event in Moscone centre, Tim Cook unveiled a new version of MacBook Pro with the amazing Retina display with 2880x1800 resolution topping over 5 million pixles.

The Retina display makes MacBook Pro the highest resolution product in laptop market.

The other promising feature of Macbook Pro is the intel i5 and i7 "Ivy Bridge" CPU and the upgraded graphics.

Having all those features packed into the new MBP, Apple also managed to slimed down its thickness by almost half and only a few millimetres thicker than MacBook Air.

Having seen other MBPs overheating at some point under high loads, I was immediately alarmed about the heat dissipation in the new MBP, given how much thinner it's got resulting in less space for the airflow. however it seems Apple as always managed to keep the heat under control with even less fan noise through the vents.

Here are some details about the new Ivy Bridge and the Retina display from Engadget and PCMag.
