Apple is going to host a secret summit for iOS developers in California next week. Read in the Business insider, the summits starts next Tuesday and and going to last for three days. There are no exact detail about the events but there is a leak that this is about the improvement of iOS applications that are available in the Apple Apss Store.
Well it seems that apple is making its move in improving their operating system for more quality features and more advance application to compete with other OS. What do you think.?
We’ll be updating this post.. so lets just wait for the event. ^^
Read in The Week today that NASA Ames and the Pentagon’s Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) just started a project called the ” Hundred Year Star ship ” . With $1 million funding from DARPA and $100K This project is designed to take astronaut a one way trip to Mars or to another planets. So what is this project really is? what do they mean by the term “one way trip” . Evan Dashevsky at GearLog mention that space is “annoyingly, impractically huge” and it will took a long time for us to travel, assuming that the nearest planet to earth is 24 million miles away. ” Also, it will cost a lot less, since the major expense of any plan to travel to other worlds is bringing the astronauts home, say geologist Dirk Schulze-Makuch and physicist Paul Davies in the Journal of Cosmology.
Now, who would volunteer for this kind of task? Rebecca Boyle in Popular Science, noted that price tag does not include the inestimable cost of saying goodbye forever,” “It would really be little different from the first white settlers of the North American continent, who left Europe with little expectation of return,” says Davies.
NASA is looking at electric and ground-based microwave thermal propulsion systems to boost the ship into space, rather than using heavy rocket fuel. This will cost less in achieving this mission.
“Within a few years we will see the first true prototype of a spaceship that will take us between worlds,” he says. “I think we’ll be on the moons of Mars by 2030 or so.”
Microwave thermal propulsion (Kevin Parkin)
The microwave thermal thruster using beamed propulsion is an excellent idea,” said Dr. Narayanan M. Komerath, a professor at Georgia Tech College of Engineering and a NASA Institute of Advanced Concepts Fellow. “[Kevin Parkin] picks the 140 GHz window, which apparently offers strong advantages in absorption by the materials that he uses in the propulsion system.
Well I think they should also try this technology in commercial flight. It would be cheaper and will benefits us all including our environment. Less carbon emission means less pollution…. What do you think?
AUSTIN, TX, October 25, 2010 – The WiFi Alliance announced that they had begun certifying device that are capable of connecting each other without the use of other network device. Pretty cool huh’ , a device to device connection. The connection is protected by WAP2 security Wi-Fi Direct connection requires active agreement: one device must request access, and the other device grants permission. Well this new technology can help us connect with friends and other people with just one push of a button.
We designed Wi-Fi Direct to unleash a wide variety of applications which require device connections, but do not need the internet or even a traditional network, Wi-Fi Direct empowers users to connect devices – when, where and how they want to, and our certification program delivers products that work well together, regardless of the brand. said Edgar Figueroa, CEO of the Wi-Fi Alliance.
The following WiFi device were the first to be certified as a WiFi Direct.

Robots, they had been my favorite toy since I was a kid, and still fascinated whit them up to now . Well, now in our daily living , as technology evolves, robots and robotics has been a part of it not only in toys but also in some industries like car manufacturing , some medical instruments, agriculture and military equipment. Some of us is aware of that and some are not. There are people who are interacting with robots yet not noticing it. Maybe the reason is some of us think that robots is the same as what they see in the movie or television. As mention by Alicia Jones (Supervisor, Corporate communication American Honda) in the video below, she said that some people are watching to much television, and I agree with her that we could imagine lots of possibility in a scifi movie but in reality, applying it, is a very difficult task to achieve.
Now the big question is, are we ready to accept them as part of our community? Let’s put ASIMO as an example, a bipedal robot created and developed by HONDA, who could walk like human, run and climb stairs. Almost 24 years of experiments and development, ASIMO’s technology is evolving little by little from walking, running, avoiding obstacles and now they are even developing ASIMO’s AI capabilities. This leads many other robots developing institution and companies in making robots that could help us in our daily living . I think accepting them as part of our life would motivate developers to continue in researching and perfecting this kind of technology.
Manny people think that robots will dominate us in the future. Hmmmm.. it only happen in the movie like irobot and terminator. how about you?,…. are you ready?
