IDG Contributor Network: Facebook’s plan to own (and destroy) your smartphone with AR

Mark Zuckerberg already controls much of how we regularly interact with other humans, but now he appears to be taking things a step further and change how we view reality itself. At Facebook’s F8 developer conference, Zuckerberg talked about a world where augmented reality merges with the real world, letting us see and interact with objects in ways which feel like something out of a video game. For now, our smartphones will be the avenue through which we experience this combination of the digital and the real until Zuckerberg can come up with something better.AR developments Facebook’s interest in augmented reality and its cousin virtual reality is hardly news, as was best shown when Facebook acquired VR headset maker Oculus Rift back in 2014. And the success of Snapchat and the Pokémon Go craze last year already showed the potential of AR.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

IDG Contributor Network: Dell 5220 is a beauty and a beast

When I reviewed the Dell XPS 13 Developer Edition, I concluded that it was the ‘best’ Linux laptop ever. I just found the big sister of that laptop — the Dell 5220, one of . five new Linux-powered systems that Dell recently announced. I have been using the Dell 5220 for over a week now and I have totally fallen in love with it. And it is not mmerely love at the first sight or just specs deep. Before I talk about my hands-on experience with this laptop, let’s get the specs out of the way. This unit comes with Intel Core Xeon E3 1505M v6 (Quad Core Xeon 3.00GHz, 4.00GHz Turbo, 8MB 45W, w/Intel HD Graphics 630, Nvidia Quadro M1200 w/4GB GDDR5, 15.6″ UltraSharp UHD IGZO (3840×2160) Touch Wide View LED backlit, 32GB DDR4 RAM, and M.2 PCIe 512GB SSD.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

IDG Contributor Network: Microsoft OneDrive slowness irks Linux users; Netflix supports Linux on Firefox

Is Microsoft degrading OneDrive performance in Linux? Some Microsoft OneDrive users are reporting massive performance degradation on Linux, whereas everything works buttery smooth on Windows. There is no OneDrive client for Linux; you can access it only through a web browser. A user reported on Reddit that if OneDrive detects you are running Linux, the performance goes down but if you change the user-agent settings in the web browser, fooling it into thinking that you are running Windows, the performance goes up:To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

IDG Contributor Network: Is the new, cheaper iPad worth buying?

iPad sales have been sluggish in recent years, and Apple has become painfully aware of how its tablet sales pale in comparison to iPhone sales. Now the company has released a new, cheaper iPad that starts at $329 for 32GB and goes up to $429 for 128GB.But is the new iPad worth the money?Well let’s start with the tech specs of the new, cheaper iPad. MacRumors has a list of what you can expect from the new iPad in terms of hardware: The new 9.7-inch iPad is similar in many ways to the iPad Air 2, which had an A8X chip and started at $399, but slightly thicker and heavier with a faster A9 chip and a brighter Retina display. Another difference is that the new 9.7-inch iPad does not have a fully laminated display or anti-reflective coating per its tech specs.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

IDG Contributor Network: Is the new iPhone SE worth buying?

When Apple first released the iPhone SE, many people scoffed at the idea of an updated 4-inch iPhone. But the iPhone SE proved to be quite popular among iPhone users, and the small phone naysayers were left with egg on their faces.One of the biggest complaints about the original iPhone SE was that it offered only 16 GB of storage in its cheapest model. Apple has now fixed that problem and buffed the storage up to 32 GB for the entry level model which will sell for $399, and 128 GB for the next model up which will sell for $499.So is the new iPhone SE worth buying?The new iPhone SE has larger storage but no other hardware upgrades Obviously the upgraded storage adds real value to the iPhone SE and makes it much more attractive for many users. Let’s face it 16 GB was a bit of a joke, and it was far too easy to fill that up without even trying very hard. 64 GB was a bit better but even that can be easily filled up with 4K photos, videos, games and various apps.To read this article in f

IDG Contributor Network: Why your small business needs a mobile app

Are you app-solutely missing the boat?These days, we carry our smartphones everywhere. People are using them to play, order food, make purchases, do research, communicate, check reviews, read books, find love and generally get by day to day. Some people are even running their business from their phone! In fact, many of you probably prefer using apps over your desktop when it comes to things like checking emails, updating your social media accounts or checking your online banking.Smartphones have already revolutionized the way brands can market to consumers through branded apps that connect businesses to their customers 24/7. Brands are already using apps successfully to connect with their customers, think of Dominoes and Starbucks, Ebay and Amazon they are using apps really successfully. Apps offer a far more direct marketing channel now than ever in the past, from an push notification that offers you a personalized offer  when smart geolocation technology detects a customer is near

IDG Contributor Network: How to watch 3D movies and use the external hard drive on PlayStation 4

Sony has released a software update (version 4.50, codenamed Sasuke) for PlayStation 4 (PS4) that brings many new features to the device, including the long-awaited support for external hard drives.My PlayStation 4 Pro comes with 1TB of storage and it is at the brink of filling up. I only have 200GB of space remaining and the upcoming games — UNCHARTED: The Lost Legacy, Ghost Recon, and Watch Dogs — are going to eat it all up.While my Xbox One allows me to plug in an external hard drive to expand storage, with PlayStation you have to manually remove the internal hard drive and then replace it with higher capacity one. This is a less-than-ideal solution for a majority of users.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

IDG Contributor Network: Apple: Transgender bathrooms instead of new Macs?

One of the things I liked best about Steve Jobs was that he more or less kept Apple out of partisan politics. Oh sure, everybody knew that Jobs himself was a liberal in terms of politics, but he never used Apple as a platform to push a partisan political agenda. Steve Jobs knew quite well that people with all different kinds of politics were Apple customers, so he steered the company away from getting directly involved in politics. This had the beneficial effect of preventing people from resenting Apple on the basis of partisan politics. Tim Cook, on the other hand, seems completely unable to follow in Jobs’ footsteps when it comes to using Apple as a political platform. Cook has gone full SJW [social justice warrior] and seems unable to keep his politics to himself while acting in the role of Apple’s CEO.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
