Nintendo will invest in the mobile market

Surely you remember the Nintendo gaming console that early in the 90’s was a favorite toy of many children, but from then until now the company has lost ground to competitors and new models did not respond to the modern demands of gamers, so no wonder that face a failure in the last decade.

Nintendo Wii U gaming console

Nintendo had to admit that their greatest asset console Wii U is a complete failure and cannot deal with the powerful PlayStation and Xbox so they need a new strategy to take out of this difficult situation.

Satoru Iwata, the president of Nintendo said that the company has to introduce a new strategy, which is based on offering games for mobile platforms like Android and iOS and tap into the mobile gaming field, preferably their own devices.
Nintendo 3DS and 2DS

Interestingly, mobile consoles such as 2DS and 3DS are still popular mostly in Japan, indicating that there is still interest in the legendary games like Super Mario, so no wonder if in the future we see gaming Smartphone or tablet created by Nintendo.

Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro

With a few years experience already behind, Samsung is preparing to bring more tablets in 2014. The feeling in the Tab range was already stagnant: few changes between models each year that did not fully justify the passage from one generation to another. Keeping the level of fairly discreet, but this year comes with major improvements.
Samsung Tab Pro

 His name is Pro and Galaxy Tab comes to cover the gap left by his brother, very similar but without the addition of the stylus and the software that accompanies it. At Tech IT Corner we could try to bring you our first impressions of a family of tablets aimed at professional use but, we will be the ones that define the boundaries, use and finally its utility.

What goes with professional Samsung Tab Pro family?


 In terms of marketing, many companies use professional very vague concept. What is a commercial? In some categories such as photography is best understood: the reporter dedicated to covering the news, who works in a studio but cooked into categories that encompass more possibilities, such as a tablet, what do we mean by professional?

 By advertising and images they use, it seems that the typical businessman is also public college age looking for a device to take notes, take it all in digital format instead of folders and folios books ... This seems to be the age of this Tab Pro since in the range Note is clearer who the target is: the creative people who are always scribbling.

Samsung Tab Pro 2


 We take the tablet and see that Samsung has risen from the classic design of the Tabs so far to appropriate aesthetic keys edition 2014 Galaxy Note 10.1 . Plastic back that seeks to imitate the feel of the body, a very thin body and the feeling of being in a well-constructed and where terminal care has been taken than thick or heavy.

 The screen is also an early legacy of what we saw at IFA: WQHD resolution panel in two models, the eight and twelve inches. Speaking of the latter size: it is not as big as it seems, is very comfortable with two hands and no seems like we're taking the screen of a laptop. Great, of course, but not huge.

 As for the other specifications we find nothing new and we have not seen to date: leading specifications that can review our data sheet, which show clearly that this is a terminal that goes with an Android 4.4 fluid of KitKat series and a layer of software with many new features.

Samsung Tab Pro 3

TouchWiz is renewed in tablets to improve its image


 If we did a survey of layers of software in Android, TouchWiz probably not come out as one of the top rated. It is a good example of who much covers and all trades. Has strengths but the final feeling is to want to be present in many aspects but not always perform their work.

 Thus, we get an update that TouchWiz can give us some hints of what we see in smartphones also: simple icons and menus plus a desk that is completely renewed and happens to consist of a series of widgets as panels to show information of all kinds.

Samsung Tab Pro 4


 Remember a little work already done for instance Chameleon Project and HTC with their One Much information on the desktop but clutter. I personally liked and Samsung has taken advantage of the virtues of customizing Android with a big screen that invites us to see many things at once.

 Not only that, the system of floating windows back and now we can have up to a total of four at the same time across the tablet screen. We also have them in multi advantage system, with the ability to resize and doubt whether having four windows simultaneously can be useful and not simply a technical example of what to do with it.

Samsung Tab Pro 5

Conclusions after the first contact


 Although previous leaks at CES detracted surprise, after trying in Las Vegas should be recognized that Samsung has done a remarkable job with this new Pro range interface makes the difference against a well known hardware and does not hide any surprises.

 Some doubts remain in the air: Pro absorb this range her sisters without this designation? All indications are that no, because these are two different uses. The other is the price, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 Edition 2014 is not a good omen and considering that brings functions is unlikely to be an economical terminal but personally, hope to be wrong saying this.

Mac Pro is on sale, but it costs a whopping $ 3,000

Apple released the new Mac Pro comes with a cylindrical design to sales. The computer comes with a quad-core Xeon E5 processor of 3.7 GHz, RAM 64 GB, and a combination of two AMD Fire Pro in Crossfire with available memory to 6 GB. The pre-order for the MacPro starts today, and the news of his release are from the personal profile of Tim Cook.


 The entire computer is designed for performance, and that affects the price. The version that comes with 12 GB RAM, dual Fire Pro D300 and 256GB SSD buyers will have to allocate $ 3,000 , a variant of the 6 -core processor and dual FirePro D500 which comes with 16 GB RAM seems almost incredible $ 4,000 . Because of the powerful graphics cards, computers can run 3 monitors with 4K support Thunderbolt, or 6 monitors.

 These performance Mac Pro is one of the best computers available to professionals who need power primarily for video editing, 3D modeling and photography. But although the hardware is impressive, the show will still steal the design on the computer that unlike the usual boxes this time a cylinder and looks like R2-D2 from Star Wars. The idea behind this revolutionary design is to make more efficient cooling for the powerful computer. The housing has a single large fan on top, but is designed with a “thermal core “through which air passes and cool parts.

ATM Malware

A group of ATM cash machine in Mexico recently was aim of new samples of malware known as Plutous. This was part of an attack that allowed hackers to remotely manipulate the denominations of money dispensed by ATM at these positions.

 But while this new type of attack directed against ATM is a serious risk of fraud, but the skimming is a bigger danger (for experts). The skimming is nothing else than copying private user data using the magnetic stripe of the card. Precautions should be taken against both immediate threats, they say.

 Most problems that compromise the security of the ATM responds to insufficient physical and network security, If the locks used in the ATM platform are easy to break or network connections fail to encrypt transaction data, the data of the owner of the credit card will be at risk.

 It is proven that the locks used at ATMs are still not enough to physically protect the devices. Alarms In some situations do not jump when they are open, so that a machine could be altered and no one would know. We tried a lot of different ATMs and other point of sale devices, we still see lots of traffic also un-encrypted.
ATM machine

 But new malware attacks could mean a change in the ways of attack on these platforms. I think the malware is a crime far more dangerous and potentially harmful. While technology exists that can be applied to protect skimming attacks or we can educate the client to adopt a safe environment for your transactions, malware is hidden and out of our control."

 Services ATM and POS (Point-of-Sale) at risk

 ATM Exchange research includes a number of different constructions of ATMs, models and operating systems. And, apart from the mark, ATM Exchange concludes that a number of ATMs are susceptible to remote attacks, such as those found in Mexico and caused by poor computer security and/or lack of a system of data encryption protocols transaction such as the NDC and 912.

 In their tests, the experts were able to alter the transaction without requiring physical access to the device. Just needed to know the type of network on which the cashier was operating. Although ATM Exchange detailed vulnerabilities in their study appear to be different from those operated in the case of Mexico, the company specialists conclude that these recent threats could provide similar results.

 The attacks in Mexico came from a first physical attack ATMs were infected by introducing CDs in their optical drives, which contained the malware Ploutus.

 In most cases, there is simply generic malware (with ability to analyze memory) used against POS devices. In this case, the malware can also transfer funds and even control the type of output banknotes money.

 There was also a special code required to activate the GUI (graphical user interface) in the malware . The malware may have been designed for a specific bank ATM used, but although other banks are at risk. The good news , to call it , is that this phenomenon requires physical access to the device, which would limit the scope of the attacks on the self or standalone units .

Soon we will be able to build our own Smartphones

Rather than complete replacement of mobile phones you could soon buy only certain components in the form of accessories for your mobile and thus upgrade the phone by yourself.

Project Ara

 Companies Google and Motorola earlier this month introduced a mobile phone named Moto X with a large emphasis placed on its personal customization so users through the website MotoMaker will be able to compile phone with their performance and to buy it.

 Later, Dive Hakens presented his idea of cellular phones to be composed of blocks, units can easily be replaced without having to buy full phone device. So the users themselves will have to manually compile their mobile phones , as fans of good battery you can put a block to a larger battery or lovers of good pictures can upgrade the phone to block stronger camera etc.

Motorola block phone

 Companies looking way as the devices themselves can be upgraded by software need it to do and hardware in accordance with the needs of the user. So, the goal is to develop Motorola hardware platform for which developers will develop components that users can upgrade their Smartphone’s - in a similar way today people upgrade the software on their phone and in the future to be able to upgrade the hardware. ...

 If your processor is outdated and doesn’t support new games, then you can simply buy a block with optional processor and a second fastener to your phone.

 Motorola project is at an early stage and still remains to be seen whether it will bring a true revolution in mobile telephony that would stop you from buying a new phone when you would simply have to upgrade them - cheaply and simply.

What Google teaches us about mobile marketing

Google recently organized a conference in San Francisco. The objective of the conference was mobile marketing. It was a great opportunity for some tech enthusiasts to see the big shots of Google. “Googlers” presented their valuable ideas to people. I find some of these strategies very inspiring. At one point you feel as if it’s too much of a cliché but there are important advices for people who are interested in mobile marketing.

nexus 5

 Google are also masters of the well timed "leak" and have a habit of creating buzz around their products by revealing snippets of information. Just last week we saw the Nexus 5 appear in the Google Play store only for it to disappear a short while later. Of course it was there long enough for people to grab screenshots and start a wave of speculation. This will give you a good idea of how smartly they go about their business. So any tips they provide must surely be very useful.

 These are the seven of the best mobile marketing tips Google presented at the conference.

Customer first policy


 Matt Lawson the Director of Search Ads Marketing at Google said that in order to attain a “profitable mindset” you have to deploy the policy of “always being there for the customers.” Lawson says that marketers should use mobile bids to ensure that they are hitting the right people at the right time. The communication between you and your customer is the key – even if he doesn't find it fruitful at first, even if he doesn't leave a feedback, even if the correspondence amounts to nothing in the end, it would still have its benefits.

 Make your mobile apps accessible This is more common sense than an incisive policy. If you make your mobile apps difficult to get, people will not buy them. Lay out a platform which is easy for them; easy to buy, easy to download, easy to install.

Use your apps to involve customers in your company


 There are more than a million apps on the app store, while there are 0.7 million apps on iTunes. An average smart phone user spends no less than 650 minutes using different apps on his phone. This means that in order to connect with the users the best bet is your apps.

Take extensive measurements and feedbacks


 Measuring everything is very important - even if it’s a small thing. When you are making strategies, the measurements and feedbacks help you more than you can imagine. Feedback from the customers is the only way you can know how to improve your product for them.

Make strategies, do mind work instead of “leg work” that can be automated


 I found this simple yet brilliant strategy quite compelling. In today’s world almost anything, any kind of work can be automated, then why waste your time in “doing it yourself” when you can use your creativity to make strategies. Strategies get you the market share. Make good strategies, you will get good customer base for your app – it’s as simple as that.

Ensure that the platform, the apps and the user connects well with your business


 Matthew Eichner, Director at DoubleClick says that you can only judge the real experience of a customer when you can see everything he is doing with your app. Therefore, he should be able to swiftly use your app while getting a positive image of your business in his mind.

Become familiar with Google ad types


 Google is leading with way with some popular offers like click-to-download, mobile sitelinks, call-in app ads and other apps that relate to locations, weather, calls and what not. If you want your mobile marketing campaign to be successful you need to be familiar with Google ad types.
