Mum’s been the word from the Jolicloud camp over the past few months — summer vacation, we get it — but the company has apparently been working quite diligently on what’s next: the “new Jolicloud platform.” According to a mildly vague blog post from the outfit, the next edition of the OS will introduce “the personal cloud,” enabling users to access the information stored there from “your iPhone, your Android phone, your tablet, your computer and pretty much any connected device with its API.” In related news, Joli OS has been open sourced and is now available to the community, and if you’re interested in finding out more about the whole ordeal, sign up for the private beta in the source links below. Invites are going out soon, or so we’re told.
Sony has announced that the PlayStation Vita will be hitting shelves February 22nd at retailers in the US, Canada, Latin America and Europe. In addition to all your favorite gaming titles and a pocket filled with 512MB of RAM, you’ll be able to chat it up with your fellow assassins cross-game or via Facebook, Foursquare, Skype and Twitter. If that’s not enough, the 5-inch OLED display, dual analog sticks, dual cameras, and front and rear touch panel should be enough get you amped for a Call of Duty campaign on the handheld device. Keep in mind: this bad boy will sport 3G from AT&T for $299 or you can snag the WiFi-only model for $249. If you’re looking for more details, hit that source link below.

Apps are the heart and soul of the Android tablet experience–but for new tablet owners, it isn’t always easy to figure out where to begin. While Google’s Android Market offers a small section of “featured” tablet apps, it doesn’t provide a comprehensive list of programs that are optimized for the larger screen.
And, while most Android apps will run on a tablet, those that are built explicitly to take advantage of the devices’ larger screens tend to provide the best experiences. I’ve spent countless hours finding and testing Android tablet apps to uncover the best of the best.
Here are 10 essential apps every Android tablet owner should consider :
PicSay Pro :
Android tablets pack plenty of multimedia potential, but what good is having photos if you can’t edit them on the fly? PicSay Pro, available for $3.99 in the Android Market, gives you everything you need to make your images pop.
Its tablet-optimized interface has easy-to-use tools for resizing, rotating, cropping, and flipping photos. Aside from being useful, I found the app fun to use: A couple of taps, for example, will let you paint on your pictures or apply a dizzying array of advanced effects, ranging from contrast and color adjustments to red-eye fixes and funky filters. If you plan on handling photos in any way from your tablet, you’ll definitely want this app in your arsenal.
Accuweather for Honeycomb :
Get the weather in style with Accuweather’s free Accuweather for Honeycomb Android app. The app gives you a gorgeous graphical display of current conditions in your area, using your tablet’s GPS to figure out where you are. You can put that info right on your tablet’s home screen, too, thanks to the app’s attractive multicity widget.
Within the program itself, you can see the forecast hour by hour or switch to a 15-day view to plan ahead. You can even get detailed info about how the weather looks for a specific factor like grass growing, bicycling, or asthma risk. The Accuweather app has interactive radar and satellite maps; it also offers a selection of national and regional forecast videos as well as the latest weather headlines from around the world.
News360 for tablets :
When it comes to news and tablets, no one does it better than News360. The News360 for Tablets app acts as your own personal news aggregator: While other apps allow you to browse specific sources or access RSS subscriptions, News360 tracks all the current hot news topics and gives you lists of sources to choose from, kind of like Google News. If you want, it can even study your social media and Google Reader habits and use that data to automatically find content that caters to your interests.
I found News360′s interface to be clean, crisp, and carefully crafted to take full advantage of Android’s tablet-centric features. Best of all, the app is free.
FileManager HD :
One of Android’s advantages over other tablet platforms is that it allows you to browse your device like a computer: You can drag and drop files from your PC and access the tablet’s full file system, moving through directories and opening, copying, or sharing files as you wish.
In order to do this, you need a good file management utility. My pick is File Manager HD, available free in the Android Market (with an optional $2.49 in-app donation to eliminate a small on-screen ad). File Manager HD makes full use of your tablet’s display area with its multipaned, intuitive interface. It even boasts integrated support for file compression and decompression, as well as the ability to access remote systems via LAN or SMB connections.
SwiftKey Tablet X :
Google’s standard tablet keyboard is fine, but trust me, you can do better. Grab SwiftKey Tablet X, available for exactly $4.99 in the Android Market. It gives you a pimped-out keyboard that does all the hard work for you (well, most of it): SwiftKey uses a special “prediction engine” to analyze your typing habits and thereby predict your words before you type them.
I never cease to be amazed at how often SwiftKey’s predictions are right (and how much key-tapping that saves). SwiftKey is fully customizable, too, with multiple color schemes and an optional split-screen mode for thumbs-only input. Altogether, this app is a must-have add-on for any Android tablet.
Who doesn’t love movies? The aptly named Movies app, offered free from Flixster, gives you everything you could possibly want to get your Hollywood groove on.
When you open the app, you see a list of all the current movies showing that day. Tapping on any film brings up a panel with a detailed description, local showtimes, images, trailers, cast info, and reviews from critics and users alike. You can browse through upcoming theater releases and DVD releases, too, and search for any movie–past, present, or future.
I like the app for its ease of use and the sea of information that it puts at your fingertips. The Movies app even features Netflix integration, allowing you to manage your streaming queue and to add any title with a single tap.
Need an awesome way to take notes, make lists, and save all sorts of info? Springpad is just the thing for you. The free app lives in the same neighborhood as note-taking services like Evernote and Catch, but its outstanding Android tablet interface puts it miles ahead in my book.
Springpad lets you input text notes, audio notes, image notes, or product notes (via scanned barcodes) into any number of “notebooks,” or categories, that you create. You can even input the name of a movie or book that catches your eye, and Springpad will automatically attach a full profile of the product to your note. Springpad continuously syncs your data, so all of your stuff is always accessible on the Web or via the company’s free Chrome extension.
QuickOffice Pro HD :
Tablets are great for note-taking, but sometimes you need to do more. That’s where Quickoffice Pro HD comes in. Quickoffice Pro HD, available for $20, is a full-featured productivity suite made specifically for Android tablets. It gives you robust word-processing, spreadsheet, and PowerPoint editing capabilities, all in a tablet-optimized interface that’s a pleasure to use.
Quickoffice Pro HD can integrate with a number of different cloud storage services, too–Google Docs, DropBox, and SugarSync, among others–allowing you to save files directly to the Web in addition to your device. For my money, no other Android tablet office app even comes close to comparing.
Wyse Pocketcloud Pro :
These days, you don’t have to be in your house to get on your home PC. Android tablets are the perfect tools to run specialized software that lets you remotely access and control your computer. I’d recommend Wyse PocketCloud Pro, available for $14.99 (or free in a limited-functionality version).
Setting up PocketCloud Pro is simple, and once you’ve installed the PC or Mac client, it takes just seconds to get your desktop up and running on your tablet’s screen. You can swipe around the desktop with your finger and use mouse or keyboard tools to interact. PocketCloud Pro supports RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol) and VNC (Virtual Network Protocol) connections; it also offers TLS (Transport Layer Security) encryption and the ability to connect to multiple computers.
Plume for Twitter :
Tablets and tweets team up triumphantly with LevelUp Studio’s Plume for Twitter application. Plume, available free with an optional $2.99 ad-eliminating upgrade, gives you three customizable columns of Twitter-filled goodness. Any column can be set to show your main Twitter timeline, @mentions, direct messages, favorites, lists, or searches.
Tapping on a tweet causes it to open in a side panel on the screen. Plume has its own built-in browser, too, meaning that you can view linked pages without ever having to exit the program. Add in multiple account support and a completely customizable interface, and you’ve pretty much got the total package.
When one thinks of multiplayer gaming on the iPhone, turn-based board games like Words With Friends come to mind. They’re extremely convenient, allowing friends near and far to play games together at their own pace and convenience.
However, these games lack action and immediacy. After all, there’s a special kind of satisfaction that comes from beating a friend, and instantly being able to view his reaction. Thankfully, iOS is full of games that can help satisfy that desire through live multiplayer action.
Below are the best five games on iOS which will certainly grab your attention :
1. Street fighter IV volt :
This modern entry of Capcom’s famous fighting game series has an elaborate, near-console quality iOS version. The Volt version enables online play, allowing for battle between two players anywhere in the world. Capcom has also shown a commitment to post-release support by adding new content and addressing technical online play issues. Those who fear that a fighting game won’t work on a touch screen as well will be pleasantly surprised to maneuver Street Fighter mobile play.
2. Star legends :
This online role-playing game allows players to tackle quests with others all over the world. A player can auction items and acquire special equipment, just like the traditional MMORPG games, but now it can be played during the morning commute. The game is free, with no subscription costs, and as a bonus, is a universal app on iOS. Player accounts are cross-compatible with Android, making it possible to play as the same character on both devices.
3. Deadlock :
A surprising rarity on iOS, this dual-stick shooter features competitive online play in both deathmatch and objective modes, alongside standard single-player survival modes. Players hunt down opponents using two virtual joysticks, one for movement, and the other for firing in a given direction. Players can earn experience that goes toward better weapons and equipment.
4. Real racing 2 :
Firemint’s racing title is possibly the best-looking game in the App Store. It features online racing for up to 16 players. Participants can take their speedy vehicles earned in single-player mode into multiplayer, and race around each of the game’s tracks. Watch out for a racing field that won’t be afraid to run you off the course — or just win via precision racing.
5. Sonic & Sega all stars racing :
Sometimes it’s just more fun to launch a precision missile at other racers. Kart racers (think Mario Kart) features a variety of Sonic and Sega characters that race around crazy Sega-inspired tracks, deploying weapons and special abilities to get to the front of the pack.
Android apps except for Honeycomb are completely open for any manufacturer to use as they please, but Google’s apps — Gmail, Maps, YouTube, Books, etc. — are closed and only available for Google’s Android partners to use. Of course, people who are loading alternative ROMs on their Android devices know where to get the Google apps to install them. However, as of today, it seems that GetJar, one of the alternatives to the Android Market, has all of the Google apps available for download! If you do a search for “Google Inc” on GetJar, you’ll see them all.
It’s not quite clear how GetJar got access to these apps. A quick glance at GetJar’s blog didn’t offer any explanation. These apps aren’t even available in the Android Market! It’s additionally baffling since Google’s closed apps require tweaks to the Android system framework in order to work properly (those of you who have installed other ROMs on your Android devices know this). However, Jerry from Android Central tried both Google Music and YouTube, and both apps seemed to work fine. I’m curious whether devices that specifically do not have access to the Android Market would be able to properly load these apps? If you try this out on such a device, let us know in the comments.

Bose has introduced the Bose Bluetooth headset Series 2 with Bose technologies to offer an experience unrivaled in the vast marketplace of Bluetooth headsets. The luxe, over-ear attachment doesn’t discriminate as to your best side, coming in both right and left versions. There’s a whole load of hyperbolically-named proprietary tech bundled into it to reduce background noise and adjust listening levels accordingly — exactly the performance you’d expect at this $150 price point. Bose is offering this BT 2.1 headset now, so you can snag it if you’re nearby one of its boutiques. Or, make like the rest of us and order it online. Official PR after the break.
FRAMINGHAM, Mass.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Bose has introduced the Bose Bluetooth headset Series 2, debuting new Bose technologies to offer an experience unrivaled in the vast marketplace of Bluetooth headsets: conversations remain clear and natural — even in challenging environments, or when surrounding noise levels change suddenly. The Bose Bluetooth headset Series 2 integrates Bose full-range audio and A2DP, and comes in right- and left-ear versions. It will be available beginning October 3, 2011, directly from Bose and select authorized resellers worldwide.
New Microphone System, New Technologies, New Clarity
The Bose Bluetooth headset Series 2 includes a proprietary dual microphone system to improve speech intelligibility far beyond that of conventional Bluetooth headsets, rejecting background noise and dramatically reducing the audible effects of wind. Bose proprietary signal processing further counteracts the unwanted sounds of a wide variety of places — gusty walkways, commuter rail platforms or airports. Regardless of the environment, the Bose Bluetooth headset Series 2 ensures the user’s voice is better heard during calls, while background distractions are heard less. Bose
To keep incoming voices clear, Bose® TriPort® acoustic structure and Bose Adaptive Audio Adjustment technology react automatically as noise levels change; there’s no need to adjust volume settings or strain to hear a conversation. Whether an owner is in a quiet office or on a train — or moving from a hushed lobby to a busy street — the headset adapts seamlessly, making it effortless to hear the person on the other end.
The new internal antenna in the Bose Bluetooth® headset Series 2 is custom-designed to provide category-leading range performance. Acoustic artifacts — the “pops,” “clicks” and “buzzes” familiar to Bluetooth headset owners –- are substantially reduced, and reception difficulty, even between a headset and a phone being carried in a pocket, is minimized.
Left and Right Versions, Easy Controls, Exclusive StayHear® Tips
Bose engineers have developed separate left- and right-side versions of the Bose Bluetooth headset Series 2, allowing consumers to choose the version they prefer, while enjoying the same easy access to controls. Taking calls requires just one simple top-to-bottom pinching motion on the buttons, and clearly labeled LED indicators make it easy to check battery life and confirm the Bluetooth connection.
The Bose Bluetooth headset Series 2 features Bose StayHear tips designed for long-wear comfort and stability, making it ideal for driving, commuting, working or multitasking at home. Made of soft, flexible silicone, the StayHear tips gently conform to the ear, eliminating irritation or the need to reposition.
Mobile Audio Content with Exclusive Bose Audio Technologies
Through the Advanced Audio Distribution Profile (A2DP), the Bose® Bluetooth® headset Series 2 provides benefits beyond a communication device. Proprietary Bose audio technologies, also featured in the company’s IE2, MIE2, and MIE2i headsets, ensure clear, rich audio reproduction from podcasts, apps, or other mobile content.
Compatibility and Availability
The Bose® Bluetooth® headset Series 2 is compatible with devices using the Bluetooth 2.1 (or earlier) specifications that support the Bluetooth hands-free or A2DP profiles. For consumers who want to maintain an active connection between their headset and two Bluetooth enabled devices, it includes multi-point functionality.
The Bose Bluetooth headset Series 2 includes a portable zipper case, a one-foot USB cable, a power adapter with fold-flat prongs for easy packing, and three StayHear® tips (small, medium, large) for a personal fit. It’s available from Bose for $149.95, and replaces the original Bose Bluetooth headset. The Bose Bluetooth headset Series 2 will be sold at select authorized Bose dealers, Bose retail stores, http://www.Bose.com, and toll free at 1-800-444-BOSE (2673).
Google Docs app for Honeycomb tablets has been updated to be more tablet-optimized. It now has a 3-pane layout for easy viewing of your documents list, filters and collections, and document details all at the same time. The document details panel on the right has a thumbnail view so users can preview documents before opening them. It also shows a useful list of people who have access to the document, as well as information about whether or not they can edit the file. Furthermore, when sharing a document, the updated app will autofill collaborators’ e-mail addresses to make sharing easier. The updated Google Docs app is available in the Android Market now.
If you own an iOS device then you know how annoying it is to have to plug in your mobile device to a PC to get it going or make any changes to it. With iOS 5, you no longer need a computer to own an iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch. You’ll now be able to activate and set up your device wirelessly, right out of the box. This includes downloading iOS software updates directly on your device. And you’ll be able to do more with your apps — like editing your photos or adding new email folders — on your device, without the need for a Mac or PC. Of course this is integrated with iCloud and you’ll be able to back up and restore your device automatically. Click on the source link to learn more.
