Why I have a love Relationship With My Windows phone 8 ?!

Image

Microsoft’s brand new mobile operating system. If you have ever used a Windows PC (which applies to most of us), then the learning curve for Windows Phone 8 is remarkable straightforward. Everything is intuitive and easy to navigate: in three weeks I have yet to reach for the set-up manual or watch an online tutorial to understand how something works.

As well as being easy to pick up, Windows Phone 8 has some very cool features that set it apart from other operating systems. Here are just a  few of my favorites:

1. Xbox Music
If you have any doubts about sticking with a Windows Phone, then Xbox Music will quickly change your mind. Xbox Music is Spotify, Pandora, Rdio and even iTunes all rolled into one amazing music-streaming app. There are millions of songs to choose from; you can search by title, artist or album and instantly play whatever you want; you can download music and listen to it offline; and you can even purchase a song for your permanent collection. Xbox Music is free for the first 6 months and then you get up to 10 hours of music a month after that. Or you can upgrade to the Xbox Music Pass for unlimited privileges.

2. Linking e-mail
One of the most annoying problems with other smartphones is having your e-mail scattered all over the place. The more accounts you have, the worse the problem gets. However, Windows Phone 8 allows you to link your e-mail accounts together, so all your e-mail arrives in one place. Simply go to one of the e-mail accounts you want to link, tap on the 3 dots at the bottom of the screen and choose link inboxes. You can unlink at any time.

3. Customizing the home screen
Don’t be put off by those clunky-looking home screen tiles when you first power up your Windows Phone. Tap on a tile to make it smaller, move it to a different place on the screen, or remove it from the screen completely. Similarly, you can bring all your favorite apps onto the home screen and even get ever-changing images through photos or other ‘live’ tiles. And don’t forget to change the color of the built-in apps – there are 21 different colors to choose from. (Visit Settings/Themes.)

4. Kids’ Corner
Worried about handing over your phone to your kids? No problem – Windows Phone 8 has Kid’s Corner, a wonderful feature that lets you set up a password protected area on your phone just for your kids. Visit Settings and select the Kid’s Corner option, then follow the instructions. You can add games, music, videos or apps, so your kids have a ‘fenced’ area to play in with no possibility of them getting to the more sensitive areas of your phone. Leaving Kid’s Corner is as simple as pressing the power button.

5. Family Room
A great way to make sure that you are only sharing with who you want to share with. Family Room is a subset of Groups, allowing you to set up group chats, and share calendars, photos and notes, so your nearest and dearest are the only ones in the know. Tap on the People icon and Windows Phone will walk you through the rest.

6. App Store
We all know that the Windows App Store has less apps than Apple’s App Store or Google Play, but what it lacks in volume it makes up for in layout and ease-of-use. There are different featured apps every day and, as well as the top paid, top free and best-rated lists, there are 20 or more Collections, including Holiday Shopping, For the Kids, Winter Travel, World News, Fitness Trainer and more. If you’ve ever fretted about how to find great apps, your worries will be over!

7. Syncing with the Cloud
Never worry about losing your valuable data again! Windows Phone 8 automatically links you to your SkyDrive account from the Office and Photos areas of your phone, so you can upload and save documents or photos. You can also download the SkyDrive app for even greater flexibility.

8. Taking a screenshot
This was always a bugbear for me on Android phones but with Windows Phone 8 it couldn’t be simpler. When you are on the screen you want to capture, just press the home and lock buttons at the same time. You will hear a camera shutter sound and you can find your screenshot in photos/albums/screenshots.

9. Data sense
No more wondering how much data you have used, or waiting for a dreaded “over your limit” notification. Just click on Data Sense and you will get an easy-to-understand readout of exactly how much data you have used in the last 30 days, split between cellular and Wi-Fi networks. You can also set limits for future use. The secondary Usage screen will also give you a useful breakdown of which features are using the most data, so you know where to cut back.

10. Nokia City Lens
OK, this isn’t strictly a Windows Phone app, as it was developed by Nokia, but it’s still one of the coolest apps on the planet. Nokia City Lens uses mapping software and your phone’s camera to overlay points of interest on your camera view. Just choose from a list of 8 different categories, including food, hotels, fun and famous landmarks, and point the phone in any direction. The nearest points of interest for your specific category will come up on the screen, together with a distance in miles. Just tap on any icon and it will give you more information, including an address, phone number and tap-through directions.

The Best 30 Features In Windows 8 , Look to the innovation touch .

Image

1. Interactive tiles

The Metro start screen may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but it does have undeniable benefits, chief of which is the interactive tile.

2. Task Manager

Nobody really wants to spend any time in Task Manager, but should you be forced to manually terminate a program or a task, the new-look utility makes it much easier to find the guilty, resource-hogging culprits.

3. Run ISOs and VHDs natively

Windows 8 throws a meaty bone to power users – namely, the ability to run ISO and virtual hard disk (VHD) images natively. It’s possible, for example, to download the ISO of a Linux distribution or another piece of software to the desktop, double-click to “mount” the file, and run the setup executable without having to physically burn the ISO to disc.

4. No new hardware requirements

As with Windows 7, Microsoft isn’t raising the hardware requirements for the latest version. That means – in theory, at least – that any PC capable of running Windows Vista should be able to handle Windows 8.

5. Airplane mode

With Windows 8, there’s no more scrambling around for Wi-Fi or Bluetooth switches.

6. SkyDrive integration

Until now, Microsoft’s SkyDrive has lacked a purpose in life. Beaten on features and flexibility by Dropbox and others, its chief benefit was 25GB of free online storage – but that was hard to take advantage of due to stringent file-size limits.

Image

7. Windows Store

The Windows Store, while sparsely populated for the all version of Windows 8, shows tremendous promise. Microsoft has borrowed the best features from other app stores and added a couple of unique features of its own.

Image

8. Interactive lock screen

The Windows lock screen is no longer a glorified password prompt. The attractive, customisable lock display now includes snippets of information, such as how many unread email messages are waiting in the Metro Mail app inbox, or the charge state of a laptop’s battery.

9. Split-screen apps

While other mobile OSes boast of multitasking, Windows 8 executes this in a meaningful way. Metro Style apps can be run split-screen, with most of the display devoted to one app and a thin slice down either side to another.

Image

10. Split touch keyboard

Nobody could accuse Microsoft of failing to put enough thought into its soft keyboard for touchscreen users. There are two types on offer: a keyboard that spans the full width of the screen, and a split keyboard that makes it easier to thumb-type on larger tablet screens.

What’s Meaning of Word ” Technology ” ??

Thinking

Technology is the making, usage, and knowledge of toolsmachines, techniques, craftssystems or methods of organization in order to solve a problem or perform a specific function. It can also refer to the collection of such tools and machinery. The word technology comes from Greek τεχνολογία (technología); from τέχνη (téchnē), meaning “art, skill, craft”, and -λογία (-logía), meaning “study of-”. The term can either be applied generally or to specific areas: examples include construction technologymedical technology, and information technology.

Technologies significantly affect human as well as other animal species’ ability to control and adapt to their natural environments. The human species’ use of technology began with the conversion of natural resources into simple tools. The prehistorical discovery of the ability to control fire increased the available sources of food and the invention of the wheel helped humans in travelling in and controlling their environment. Recent technological developments, including the printing press, the telephone, and the Internet, have lessened physical barriers to communication and allowed humans to interact freely on a global scale. However, not all technology has been used for peaceful purposes; the development of weapons of ever-increasing destructive power has progressed throughout history, from clubs to nuclear weapons.

The Future Of Windows : Metro UI Windows 8

Earlier today, Steven Sinofsky (the president of the Windows Division at Microsoft, as we all know by now) has posted another entry on the “Building Windows 8” blog, centered on the UI of Windows 8 and how the new Metro experience could affect consumers.

An important goal for Windows 8 he emphasizes is the harmony of the two UIs: one similar to Windows 7, and a Metro interface. The inception of Windows 8, he reveals, began in the summer of 2009, before Windows 7 shipped, and the goal? To completely reimagine Windows and asking some important questions: How do you attract a wide set of developers to a new platform? How can installing and removing applications be made painless and easy? How do you prevent applications from draining battery power? With these questions and more in mind, the building of Windows 8 began.

There is no doubt that Windows 7 has been a huge success. “Hundreds of millions of people rely on the Windows 7 UI and existing Windows apps and devices every day, and would value (and expect) us to bring forward aspects of that experience to their next PCs.” Sinofsky writes. He recognizes that Windows 7 powers business software, a wide variety of apps that people rely on, and provides a level of precision and control that is necessary for certain tasks. In other words, the desktop experience provides things that you can’t do as easily with a touch-only interface. Sinofsky points out that people don’t want to carry around two devices; those who have embraced tablets also usually own a laptop for those times when they need more precise control or need to use an application that is not/will not be available for use on tablets.

The bottom line is that Windows 8 brings together all the power and flexibility you have in your PC today with the ability to immerse yourself in a Metro style experience. There are no compromises. You carry on device that does everything you want and need, which is connectable to the peripherals you desire.

What do we think? I personally applaud Mr. Sinofsky; I agree wholeheartedly with his approach. I think we can all agree that no one uses tablets exclusively. Whether at work or at home, you have another PC. For more “heavy” tasks like modeling 3D objects or animating video, we automatically look to our desktop or laptop. Isn’t it peculiar that almost no one writes applications for a tablet on a tablet, while desktop programs are always written on a desktop? The unification of the tablet UI and the desktop experience is a necessary process and one that must be well thought out.
