Sony Xperia Z2 a next level Gadget with 5.2-inch display, and built in Camera captures 4K ultra-HD recording launched

Sony Corp. is borrowing innovations from its audio and camcorder businesses and incorporating its new Xperia Z2 smartphone with noise-canceling technology and ultra-high-definition video recording.
Noise cancellation works with an in-ear headset sold separately, while the Z2's built-in camera can capture video in so-called 4K resolution, an emerging standard that offers four times the details as current high-definition video.
"With Xperia Z2 we have taken our premium Z series to the next level, delivering unique experiences that only Sony can offer," Kunimasa Suzuki, Sony Mobile's president and CEO, said in a statement.
Monday's announcement at the Mobile World Congress wireless show in Barcelona, Spain, comes just weeks after Sony said it was selling its Vaio personal computer operations and making its Bravia TV business a subsidiary company. Sony also plans to cut its global workforce by about 3 percent, or 5,000 people, by the end of March 2015.
Sony, once an electronics powerhouse when its Walkman music players defined what portable gadgets should be, has had difficulty keeping up with Samsung and other rivals in various consumer electronics.
Phones are no different. Despite favorable reviews, Sony phones haven't had much traction in an industry dominated by Apple Inc. and Samsung Electronics Co.
With the Z2, Sony is trying to innovate on hardware, while many of the groundbreaking features in rival devices have been in their software.
The Z2 sports the same 20.7 megapixel camera found in its predecessors, the Z1 and the Z1s. Most other smartphone cameras have 8 to 13 megapixels. The Z2 is waterproof, like the Z1 phones, and its screen is slightly larger, at 5.2 inches diagonally instead of 5 inches.
Sony also announced a high-end tablet and a separate, mid-range smartphone.
The tablet is also called the Xperia Z2 and features a 10.1-inch screen, larger than most full-size tablets. It is also waterproof. The Wi-Fi-only model weights 426 grams (0.94 pound), which is lighter than Apple's lightweight iPad Air, despite the Z2's larger size.
Sony's Xperia M2, meanwhile, is meant as a cheaper alternative to the Z2. Its camera isn't as powerful, at only 8 megapixels, and the screen is only 4.8 inches.
Sony is making a version of the M2 with two SIM card slots, something in demand in emerging markets, where plans vary so much that people often have service with multiple carriers and use what's most economical for the circumstance.
Both Z2 devices will be available in March, while the M2 is slated for April. Sony did not immediately announce prices or specific U.S. plans. Sony sometimes makes phones available in the U.S. later than elsewhere around the world.
Sony also took the wraps off its latest premium tablet, dubbed Xperia Z2 Tablet and mid-range Xperia M2 smartphone, at MWC 2014 in Barcelona.

Google's - new Project " Tango! " bringing real 3D technology to smartphones

Google announced a new research project Thursday aimed at bringing 3D technology to smartphones, for potential applications such as indoor mapping, gaming and helping blind people navigate.
The California tech giant said its "Project Tango" would provide prototypes of its new smartphone to outside developers to encourage the writing of new applications.
Project leader Johnny Lee said the goal of the project, which incorporates robotics and vision-processing technology, is "to give mobile devices a human-scale understanding of space and motion."
"What if you could capture the dimensions of your home simply by walking around with your phone before you went furniture shopping?" Google said on its Project Tango web page.
"What if directions to a new location didn't stop at the street address? What if you never again found yourself lost in a new building? What if the visually impaired could navigate unassisted in unfamiliar indoor places? What if you could search for a product and see where the exact shelf is located in a super-store?"
The technology could also be used for "playing hide-and-seek in your house with your favorite game character, or transforming the hallways into a tree-lined path."
Smartphones are equipped with sensors which make over 1.4 million measurements per second, updating the positon and rotation of the phone.
Partners in the project include researchers from the University of Minnesota, George Washington University, German tech firm Bosch and the Open Source Robotics Foundation, among others.
Another partner is California-based Movidius, which makes vision-processor technology for mobile and portable devices and will provide the processor platform.
Movidius said in a statement the goal was "to mirror human vision with a newfound level of depth, clarity and realism on mobile and portable connected devices."
"Google has paved the future direction for smart mobile vision systems and we're excited to be working with a company that shares our vision to usher in the next wave of applications that fundamentally alter how a mobile device is used to experience the world around us," said Remi El-Ouazzane, chief executive of Movidius.
"Project Tango is truly a groundbreaking platform and we look forward to seeing the innovation the developer community achieves," he added.

Yamaha is ready to preparing R15 Version 3 and a big FZ updates for India

We  have learnt from our sources that Yamaha plans to launch one more scooter before it shifts focus back to motorcycles. Yamaha says the volumes are important and being in the scooter space and consolidating its success and sales growth is critical.
To that end, the company has oft late, been reluctant to talk motorcycles lest the message about Yamaha scooters be diluted. That, however, is set to change.
We understand that while the R25 is still some time away (and we think the IndianR25 may not have that international parallel twin engine), Yamaha is working hard to bring to market a new R15 V3.
Yamaha has only rolled out one significant update in the entire history of the R15 and we believe 2014 is when the second update comes. We believe that there will be updated styling and bits but the significant update will be a change to the the ECU which will bring most likely a smoother, fatter torque curve and perhaps a minor rise in power. There is no official word on this motorcycle’s launch plan, but we believe Yamaha will have this on sale before the festive season this year.
Yamaha is also working on an update for the FZ and contrary to the rumours of a 250cc FZ, what we are likely to get is some styling updates – see the FZ concept images for the sort of look we are talking about and a larger engine, perhaps 165-170cc for more torque and power. If Yamaha rolls this out at the same or similar price tag, then the FZ, which is a popular motorcycle in the 150cc segment, should see its popularity reignited.

Apple currently plans to release iOS 7.1 in March and the very next content with Images shown you the proof of iOS 7.1 beta 3 version ready to release official downloads for Apple

iOS 7.1 is currently scheduled for release in March, according to 9to5Mac. The long-awaited update is said to include numerous bug fixes and slight tweaks to iOS 7's user interface. Apple recent distributed the fifth beta of iOS 7.1 to registered iOS developers, so 9to5Mac's timeframe isn't by any means unreasonable. The site previously reported on some of the visual changes included in the betas so far; Apple has made small changes to the dialer, Music app, and users also now have the option of turning off wallpaper motion, or the "parallax" effect, while keeping folder animations turned on.

Perhaps more important than any visual changes, iOS 7.1 is also said to contain significant bug fixes. Apple previously said it was working on a fix for an issue that's been causing devices to randomly reboot since the launch of iOS 7 almost five months ago. Users can likely look forward to those stability improvements in iOS 7.1. 9to5Mac says that Apple isn't planning any other major surprises for the release, however. The site speculates that Apple may choose to announce the update during a press event next month — which may also serve as the introduction of a new Apple TV set-top box.

here the Given info from other site as i mentioned above which shows you the complete details that iOS 7.1 UI's with some screen shot images of it's dev version . so now we can get to download that beta to standard and official release by Apple on March 2014. 

Apple released the third beta of its iOS 7.1 software (build 11D5127c) to registered developers today. Apple released the first iOS 7.1 beta for developers in November bringing with it a handful of UI tweaks, performance improvements, and accessibility features. That release was followed by a second iOS 7.1 beta in mid-December which brought button shapes as an accessibility feature as well as a calendar design mirroring iOS 6 and prior.
We’ll update you of changes as we come across them. Leave us a note in the comments or at tips@9to5mac.com if you find something interesting as well.

Which Social Networks Should You Care About in 2014 and few detailed infographic view about Facebook ,twitter,you-tube,goggle+ ... from 2014

It’s hard to believe that Facebook will be ten years old this February and yet social media still seems new to many of us. Brands are struggling as much as they ever have done to understand what to do with it, and which networks actually have any real value. I noticed a number of social challenges that brands faced in 2013 but probably the two most common questions I got asked were:
  1. Which social networks should I focus on?
  2. How much of my time and resources should I allocate to each one?
The answers to these questions are not as complicated as people often think, but neither is there correct answer to either of them. Many people have written blog posts suggesting that they have the answer – but rather than add my own opinions to that long list, I thought I’d just look at the data to see where the world seems to have been spending it’s time over the last 12 years. (Infographic created in Adobe Photoshop obviously!)…

The figures… source by backtohack
I’ve purposely focused here on the total number of user profiles for each network*. I did this purely for the sake of comparison (rather than daily / monthly active users), so before anyone bursts a blood vessel and calls me out in the comments, let’s save the messy debate around active v inactive fans for another time. All I want to do here is look at which social networks people have chosen to join over the last decade or so.
 The figures themselves highlight a couple of interesting points that social media executives often miss:
  • There are almost as many social profiles just among these 21 networks, as there are people in the world!
  • Many business people forget that China has 3 of the world’s largest and most powerful social networks. (Sina Weibo for example has the same market penetration in China that Twitter does in the US).
  • Some of the Middle Eastern brands I spoke to last year told me that YouTube was far more valuable to their brand than either Twitter and Facebook, and they built their social strategies accordingly.
  • Many Spanish brands have chosen to focus their efforts on the local network Tuenti instead of Facebook.
  • The oldest social network on the list Friendster, has a surprisingly large and active fan base (admittedly now with a different purpose than it was created for).
  • Bebo is still going and planning to be properly re-launched again by original co-founder Michael Birch.
  • Google+ (the network we all like to poke fun at), has become the place for commenting on YouTube.
  • Market analysts suggested in 2013 that Pinterest (not even 4 years old), had double the click-through-rate of Twitter and drove 2x the average order value of Facebook, even though it only has 5% of the user base.
  • Russian network VK is bigger than Instagram globally with a massive 228m registered users.
  • SnapChat (hacking issues aside), 2013 saw more photos distributed on SnapChat (up to 400m each day) than there was on Facebook.
  • But… old-timer Orkut (the forgotten Brazilian network owned by Google) is still “bigger” than the trendy new kid on the block SnapChat.
“All of this is very interesting, but just because these appear to be the world’s largest networks, still doesn’t mean you should be paying attention to them…”
