Android’s new Google Photos app leaks out early

See full gallery on TechnoBuffalo

Google is expected to announce a new photo service at Google I/O later this week, and thanks to this leak, we get to take a look at its new Android app early. It comes with a whole bunch of new features and a revamped user interface, plus a new editing tool called Photos Assistant.

An early copy of the new Photos app was obtained by Android Police, which has published a whole bunch of screenshots that show the app in action. Like a lot of Google apps, it comes with a quick how-to guide that appears when you open the app for the first time.

The guide walks you through a number of the app’s key features, including search, sharing, and auto-upload. Some of them you’ll already be familiar with, because they’re already present in Google’s existing Photos app for Android.

For instance, search lets you find photos with specific people, animals, or objects; while auto-upload continues to send your photos and videos to the cloud automatically to keep them backed-up (providing you give it permission to do so). But there are plenty of new additions as well.

You’ll instantly notice the new user interface, which splits photos into days, months, or a “comfortable view.” When you find a photo you wish to edit or share, you can pinch outwards to open it, and then swipe it away again when you’re done.

To select multiple images for sharing, deleting, or sorting, you can drag your finger around the screen — just like you would drag a mouse pointer to select multiple items on a PC. By far the biggest change with the new Photos app, however, is Photos Assistant.

Assistant replaces the Auto Awesome feature Google currently offers, and “allows users to create their own goodies including albums, movies, stories, animations, or collages,” Android Police explains. The editing interface is also much-improved.

Photos.google.com will reportedly give users a web-based interface for the Photos service when it launches, but right now, it simply redirects to Google+ Photos, which will be replaced by the new Photos app.

Hopefully that will happen later this week at Google I/O — the app certainly appears to be ready for prime time — but Google may make us wait until Android M makes its public debut this fall.

Algunos de mis amigos están ahora me llaman un apologista BlackBerry

Algunos de mis amigos están ahora me llaman un apologista BlackBerry, e incluso un fanboy BlackBerry, sólo porque resulta que tengo probado, y lo disfrutamos, el Z30-libre del teclado. Sin embargo, a pesar de mi predilección por ambos teclados y el RIM avances (er, BlackBerry) ha realizado recientemente, el Nexus One de Google 5 sigue siendo mi smartphone defecto de elección.
Pero eso cambió hace dos semanas - al menos temporalmente - cuando Jon Rettinger me retó a tratar de vivir con el dispositivo insignia de BlackBerry, el Pasaporte. Y ya que estoy por lo general para cualquier reto tecnológico que decidí darle un paso - y así que me puse el Nexus a un lado y se zambulló en la parte más profunda.

Gears of War remaster screenshots from footage leak

See full gallery on TechnoBuffalo The only thing Black Tusk and Microsoft have left to do on the Gears of War remaster is actually announce it. We’ve seen it hinted at, denied, and rated.Now we have some footage accidentally leaked onto the Xbox DVR site, likely by a developer who forgot to disable the automatic upload.This isn’t gameplay footage per se – the enemy is standing still in the clips while the player attacks them. It’s likely test footage for some of the gore physics or something like that. But it’s definitely footage taken in-game.The two images above were pulled from a NeoGAF thread on the leak comparing the screenshot of the new clips to one from the original Gears. Microsoft is likely scrambling to take the footage down, but currently the thread, linked to in the source for this story, has links to the videos.If you decide to click through and watch the clips, it’s important to note that they were filmed using the Xbox Game DVR and were filmed three months ago, before t…

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt launch trailer take 2 – Go Your Own Way

You can call it another lonely day. Haven’t we been here once before? CD Projekt RED believes that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is far too amazing for just one launch trailer, so it has decided to create yet another just to drive home the fact that you need to play this game.The new “Go Your Way” launch trailer features more in-engine graphics instead of impressive pre-rendered CG, and its focus this time around is not our big, bad hero Geralt but rather the Princess Ciri. Don’t be fooled by her puppy dog eyes and adorable freckles. This girl will kill you in a flash! The trailer tells her tale of how she wandered from home, and tells of how Geralt sets out to find her.The relationship between these two is not the only star of the trailer either. Geralt’s fantasy world is full of real life horrors that extend beyond mere monsters. Slaughter, torture, executions, dangerous seductions. The trailer bares all that you will find in this horrible yet beautiful place, giving you a taste of the s…
