Tablet shipments experience largest decline since 2009 category...

For branded tablets, the year 2015 is off to a rocky start. For the first time since inception, the popular consumer item experienced its largest QoQ [quarter-over-quarter] decline to date of 35%. In addition, tablets experienced its largest YoY [year-over-year] decline of 16%.

According to marketing intelligence firm ABI Research (www.abiresearch.com), there is no denying the market is losing its momentum and leading vendors are feeling the squeeze. Apple and Samsung have been key market players and continue to dominate a significant majority of the tablet market.

"2015 is the pivotal year for smaller, competing vendors to step-up, build their business, and gain market share in advanced and emerging markets," says Senior Practice Director Jeff Orr. "The tablet market lacks a truly competitive playing field needing a strong third even fourth vendor to drive the market out of stagnation."

Softube announces availability of Heartbeat drum synth software

Softube has released Heartbeat — its first software instrument for Mac OS X 10.8 or newer (VST/VST3/AU/AAX) and Windows 8 or newer (VST/VST3/AAX).

It's drum synth software that draws its inspiration from Eighties-era-defining analog drum synths, HeartBeat does not emulate any existing drum machine.

Eight instruments are included — two different bass drums, two different snare drums, two percussion instruments, plus hi-hats and cymbal.

Heartbeat includes an effects section. Softube’s TSAR-1 reverb is included in a slightly modified form alongside the separately available Valley People Dyna-mite compressor/limiter/gate. The third effect, Filter Echo, is a new and characterful delay.

Gartner demand for enterprise mobile apps to outstrip...

By the end of 2017, market demand for mobile app development services will grow at least five times faster than internal IT organizations' capacity to deliver them, according to Gartner, Inc. (www.gartner.com).

The research group forecasts mobile phone sales will reach 2.1 billion units by 2019, which will fuel demand for apps in the enterprise that meet the high performance and usability of consumer apps. Gartner principal research analyst Adrian Leow says enterprises find it a challenge to rapidly develop, deploy and maintain mobile apps to meet increasing demand, as it is exceedingly difficult and costly to hire developers with good mobile skills.

"Organizations increasingly find it difficult to be proactive against competitive pressures, which is resulting in their mobile apps becoming tactical, rather than strategic," he adds. "We're seeing demand for mobile apps outstrip available development capacity...

Consumer ability to access the internet and connected services while in the car remains strong, making driving or parking tasks easier. While interest is especially high for services which provide traffic updates, weather updates, open parking spaces, and navigation instructions, interest in social media functionality remains low.

A new report from Automotive Consumer Insights group (ACI) at Strategy Analytics (www.strategyanalytics.com), surveyed consumers in the US, Western Europe, and China regarding their interest in and preferred payment models for in-vehicle connectivity and connected services. Consumers remained interested in services which provided drive-relevant information; with access to in-vehicle connectivity playing an increasingly important role in the purchase decision of a vehicle, across all demographics.

Limelight Networks (www.limelight.com), which specializes in digital content delivery, has released new data that shows consumers are nearly always plugged in and are increasingly updating and adding content to their phones and other connected devices.

In addition, the research shows that consumers, especially Millennials, expect and demand a seamless and consistent experience when downloading digital content. Other findings illustrate the hunger for consuming digital content on smart phones, tablets, computers and gaming consoles. Forty nine percent of Millennials report that they are more likely to download content than just one year ago, versus 43% of all respondents. However, 75% of those surveyed currently find downloading content frustrating, especially when it takes too long to complete, gets interrupted, or simply doesn’t work.

A recent study from the In-vehicle UX group at Strategy Analytics (www.strategyanalytics.com) surveying consumers in the US and Western Europe has confirmed low interest in wearables for automotive use-cases.

While younger males and luxury car owners appeared to be most interested in the US, strong interest was below 20% across all Western European segments. Despite the market for wearables (and in particular smartwatches) poised for strong growth, wearables in automotive remain arguably a solution in search of a problem.

Investigating two key use cases for wearables in the car - i) detecting and monitoring a driver’s medical condition (i.e. a supplementary heart rate monitor); and ii) remote functionality, (such as remote start or automatic parking) – Strategy Analytics noted that interest in the use of wearables for on-board heart rate monitors was below 45% for both regions.

A new report from 451 Research (www.451research.com), an information technology research and advisory company, says cellular Internet of Things (IoT) and machine to machine (M2M) connections will increase nearly fourfold globally from 252 million in 2014 to 908 million in 2019. A monumental increase in active cellular IoT/M2M connections will be driven by a number of key factors, according to 451 Research.

First, hardware and bandwidth costs have dropped to a point where nearly every enterprise can reap the benefits of virtualizing the physical world. Second, cloud-based middleware and data platforms are making it easier to securely generate insights from machine data at greater scale than ever before possible. Last, the buzz around this topic is generating overall awareness of the transformational potential of IoT/M2M in terms of return-on-investment, competitiveness and support of completely new business...

Head mounted display market growing at 49% CAGR to 2019

The head mounted display market (HMD) will grow at a compound annual growth rate [CAGR} through 2019, according to ReportsnReports (www.reportsnreports.com).

Core virtual reality works well with the interactive world of games as currently no technology can give a fully immersive, 360 degree 3D experience, says the research group. Cost also has a considerable impact on the adoption of HMDs. Currently, the industrial sector is witnessing high adoption of these devices, but adoption among individual consumers is difficult unless low-cost micro displays are integrated in this technology to bring down their overall price, says ReportsnReports.

However, demand for Light-weight HMDs and need for enhanced safety and convenience are major head mounted display market growth drivers. Customization of HMDs and integration of HMDs in multiple tasks are market challenges while VR gaming and possibility of...

New data from Parks Associates (www.parksassociates.com) finds global OTT [over-the-top] video service subscription revenues will increase from nearly US$9 billion in 2014 to over $19 billion in 2019.

Currently, 57% of U.S. broadband households subscribe to an OTT video service. Among European broadband households, 57% in the U.K., 29% in Spain, and 24% in Germany subscribe to an OTT service. The research group also finds that in 2015, approximately 7% of all U.S. households, or 8.4 million households, subscribe to broadband and at least one OTT video service but do not subscribe to pay TV.

This figure includes consumers who have discontinued pay-TV service and those who have never subscribed to pay TV.

The growth of sensor-based data combined with advanced algorithms and artificial intelligence (AI) are enabling smart machines to make increasingly significant business decisions over which humans have decreasing control, according to Gartner, Inc. (www.gartner.com).

"As smart machines become increasingly capable, they will become viable alternatives to human workers under certain circumstances, which will lead to significant repercussions for the business and thus for CIOs," says Stephen Prentice, vice president and Gartner Fellow. "In the 2015 Gartner CEO and business leader survey, opinions were equally divided on this issue and indicate that business leaders are starting to take notice of the advances being made and more readily acknowledge that the threat to knowledge work is real."

The research group says the growth will be fueled by three key markets: electronics manufacturers and electronics manufacturing services companies, small-to-medium manufacturers, and manufacturers seeking robotic solutions optimized to support agile production methodologies.

"Collaborative robotic systems, such as ABB’s YuMi and Gomtec/Roberta platforms, Rethink Robotics’ Baxter and Sawyer, Universal Robots (Teradyne) UR family of robots, KUKA’s LBR iiwa and Kawada Industries’ Nextage, were developed in response to a number of pressing social drivers and businesses imperatives, and aided by ongoing technological innovation and dropping prices for powerful enabling...

New data from Parks Associates (www.parksassociates.com) finds that 51% of pay-TV subscribers are very interested in having unlimited space to store DVR recordings, which indicates strong consumer demand for cloud-based DVR services.

Currently, over 50% of U.S. broadband homes either include a DVR as part of their pay-TV subscription or have purchased one at retail. The research firm estimates the total number of cloud DVR subscribers in the U.S. will exceed 4.6 million by the end of 2015 and total 24 million by 2018.

"Consumer interest in cloud DVR features is strong, particularly the idea of unlimited storage capacity. As with any transition, there are challenges and opportunities for operators looking to expand their services into the cloud," says Brett Sappington, director of research at Parks Associates. "Operators are interested in cloud DVR because these services will reduce their...

Just a few days after updating the terms of its AppleCare+ Protection Plan for iPhone, iPad, iPod and Apple Watch to cover batteries that retain less than 80% of their original capacity within the extended warranty period, Apple has extended the same policy to the AppleCare Protection Plan for the MacBook, MacBook Air and MacBook Pro. Apple previously only replaced defective batteries under the old terms of the AppleCare Protection Plan for Mac, but a support page updated today now outlines that the company will also replace a MacBook's battery at no charge if it retains less than 80% of its original capacity. If the notebook is not covered by AppleCare, replacing the battery requires paying an out-of-warranty service charge ranging between $129 and $199. The new battery...

Apple Watch Sport's Display With Ion-X Glass Outperfo...

Although there has been much comparison of the scratch-resistance and weight differences between the two Apple Watch display cover options -- sapphire crystal and Ion-X glass -- not much has been scientifically tested regarding each model's reflectiveness. A new report by DisplayMate out today, however, shows just how much lower reflectivity and higher contrast there is on the Apple Watch Sport's Ion-X glass compared to the higher-end Apple Watch models with sapphire. As DisplayMate points out, the two models have identical OLED displays internally, but thanks to the different outer coverings, the different models react uniquely in bright light situations. In summary, the site found that the Apple Watch with sapphire crystal display reflects 74 percent more ambient light than the Ion-X glass of the Sport model. The two displays behave almost identically in dark environments given the low levels...

Enhancing mail flow security for Exchange Online

Protecting your incoming and outgoing emails is a top priority for us, which is why we are always working to mail flow encryption. With the new security vulnerabilities constantly being uncovered, and communication privacy being in the spotlight now more than ever, we seek to upgrade our service to only use the most secure Transport Layer Security (TLS)-based encryption available.

Today’s post was written by Anne Mirtschin, teacher at Hawkesdale P12 College, a small rural prep school where students are culturally and geographically isolated. Anne is an active Skype Master Teacher.
Picture the ideal classroom where there is fun, frequent laughter, intense concentration, powerful research, dedicated learning, lots of questions posed, and thinking in different ways. Students are pushed outside their comfort zones, confidence is being instilled, valuable 21st century communication skills are learned in a collaborative work environment. Deep, powerful learning is taking place.
Mystery Skype can bring this atmosphere to the classroom—a classroom that can include any age group, culture, race and country across the world. Everyone loves a mystery and hence the increasing popularity of Mystery Skype. In this ‘game,’ students connect with another classroom or educator using Skype. Students... | Read more »

Video showcases iOS app built with Xojo

Xojo Inc., the company formerly known as Real Software, has posted a video of an iOS app that was built with Xojo. Xojo is an object-oriented, cross-platform software development tool that enables developers to create software for OS X, Windows, Linux, the web and mobile.

A look at SkySafari for iOS, Mac OS X and 2012 DA14

This Friday, Feb. 15, a 180,000-ton asteroid with the thrilling name of "2012 DA14" will fly past the Earth. Don't worry, we're not talking a "Deep Impact" scenario. Which is good, right? And you can follow the asteroid using Apple devices.

The 50-meter space rock will come within 17,200 miles of earth -- that's closer than our orbiting geosynchronous communication satellites. Although we don't have to worry about a collision, the passage of 2012 DA14 is a record close approach to the Earth for an object of this size.

Southern Stars has released update to its SkySafari Plus and Pro apps for iOS, Mac OS X, and Android to let you track 2012 DA14. If you want to track the asteroid you'll want the updated apps. Why? Because the Earth's gravity affects the asteroid's orbit so severely, most desktop planetarium programs -- and all other mobile apps -- will completely fail to predict the asteroid's position correctly, says Southern Stars founder Tim DeBenedictis.
