iOS 10 is not crazy dream

iOS 10

The Apple Developers Conference is just around the corner and if you follow the script scheduled on June 13 will know the surprises that we have prepared in iOS, watchOS, TVOS and yes, probably macOS. Surprises we expect tachen the maximum number of boxes on our wish list particular starting, of course, by iOS 10.

iOS 9 is already installed in 84% of mobile assets of the apple and the latest update has left us which probably is the most stable and refined version of the advantaged younger brother of OS X. Perhaps it is time to dream about their future more immediately, right? They say dreaming is free and here we have spared no expense.

Siri

Siri in iOS 9 stepped forward to become a much more proactive assistant, for example, suggesting apps or contacts depending on our usage habits. I hope that Apple will put your house in order and continue moving in this direction with IOS 10, but also cannot forget the foundation on which rests all, the knowledge base of the wizard and his ability to know what we talked about him and offer answers tools.

The Siri is already a classic, but Apple would appreciate the same discomfort to answer more useful questions. It cannot be that three out of four questions I ask are misinterpreted or, at best, I invite Google search. While this is not resolved, we continue using the wizard in a rather anecdotal way.

Facebook knows what you visit and use it to show … even without advertising account?

Facebook

“Bringing people better ads.” So Facebook has titled his article that explains a major change in their Facebook Audience Network. So far, and through this initiative, the network enabled applications and websites display targeted advertising to each Facebook user according to their interests and other information they had about him. From today, apps and pages can serve personalized ads to non – Facebook users.

Wait, wait … Announcements nonusers? How does the social network that information if these people are precisely nonusers? About this does not delve into the statement, although in a later interview with the Wall Street Journal. Do you see the button “like” that appears on almost every page of the Internet? Or the typical “widgets” that show the followers of a page? They serve to “follow” wherever you go , even if you do not have it.

ASUS Zenfone 3

Besides the new ASUS ZenBook in March, the Taiwanese company has used Computex to unveil the successor of Zenfone 2. Yes, successors, in plural, because we will have a base model (the Zenfone 3 to dry), a model with specifications more powerful (Zenfone 3 Deluxe ) and one with the giant screen (Zenfone 3 Ultra).

ASUS Zenfone 3 at the mid-range

The most affordable of the new models will be the ASUS Zenfone 3 than what first draws attention is its design. ASUS moves over the plastic to bet on the Gorilla Glass glass both on the back and the front of the phone. Around them, a metal frame will handle them together and cover the sides of the terminal. The company also claims to have reduced frames, with 77%, front of the phone being occupied by the screen.

The most powerful Core i7 Intel has 10 cores and costs $1723

Core i7 Intel

Intel also often featured in Computex and this year wants to be with their new processors ‘Extreme Edition’. Among them we find what we can consider as the flagship of the short list, the Intel Core i7-6950X. What makes it special? For many things, but mainly the presence of ten cores on your CPU.

In the world of desktop computers the race for the cycle rate stood aside to make way for the cores, and although in 2011 and offered Xeon processors with the number of cores, we have not seen in the domestic supply so far. The economic leap is also striking, because for it we will ask $1723.

Asus Zenfone 3, Asus Zenfone 3 Deluxe and Asus Zenfone 3 Ultra, first impressions with good feelings

Asus Zenfone

This year ASUS wanted to prolong a little moment of glory to his Zenfone 2delaying the presentation of his (or her) iteration not in January, but five months later. A line was expanded Zenfone 5, the Zenfone Max, the Zenfone C and Zenfone Zoom among others, and after seen at Computex 2016 time seems to take a different pace, after attending the presentation of the new Zenfone 3 Zenfone 3 Deluxe and Zenfone Ultra, which we could try.

Design terminals that update with respect to the above while retaining many features like opt for the back to insert a physical button, but in this case we will have a fingerprint reader (this year itself) in any of the models presented. Finished in metal (at least partially) and betting on their own for screens and cameras technologies, new Zenfone seek to do more than just hawking rivals like the iPhone 6s. Will they make more than tickle the competition? For now we are left with these first impressions.
