iPad Pro hardware and software features detailed in new report

See full gallery on TechnoBuffalo

The iPad has been on a slow decline over the past few years, and Apple is very aware of this fact. But it’s not going to just sit back while one of its most successful products fades into obscurity. According to sources speaking with 9to5Mac, the Cupertino company is looking to make several improvements over the next year, culminating in two new 12-inch models. Looks like we’ll see an iPad Pro at some point after all.

9to5Mac says Apple is working on larger iPads currently code named “J98” and “J99,” essentially a larger version of the existing iPad Air 2—one will be Wi-Fi-only, and the other will be Wi-Fi + Cellular. No other major details about the hardware were revealed, though a lot of the focus on Apple’s part seems to be on software, which we could hear more about next month at WWDC.

The larger iPad will run iOS as you and I know it now, though it’ll sport a new feature allowing users to run apps side-by-side. This is a feature that has been talked about for a while now, and we actually expected Apple officially unveil it last year, though the company apparently needed more time to polish the software.

“Sources now say that Apple Plans to show off the side-by-side feature for iOS 9 using currently available iPad models,” 9to5Mac said. “The latest plans suggest that the split-screen mode will support 1/2, 1/3, and 2/3 views depending on the apps.”

The goal here is to make the iPad a more powerful machine for productivity. Samsung devices have had a multi-window feature for a long time, while Microsoft’s Surface lineup also boasts multi-window support. The iPad has always been a device for consuming media, though the new feature (and larger iPad) could put Apple’s slate into a different plane entirely.

Additionally, 9to5Mac says Apple is ready to introduce multi-user support, which is something the company hinted at all the way back in 2012, and is a feature already offered by Android.

9to5Mac notes that the software could get pushed back as Apple continues to add polish. There’s a chance these features will be held back until the larger iPad is introduced. As to when that’ll happen, nobody but Apple knows. We’ve been seeing supposed cases and renders of the larger iPad floating around, so hopefully Apple shares details soon.

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…
