The Next Big Things Coming From the Tech Giants of the World

The Next Big Things Coming From the Tech Giants of the World

It would not be wrong to say that in the past few decades, the world has relied so heavily on technology that it would come to a stop if all the technology from the face of the planet was suddenly taken away. People talk about the Stone Age, but it would be worse when people who rely on technology are made to live without it. However, the biggest tech giants of the world are never satisfied with what’s out there. They want to do some more to take the world to a point where people will be living in a world they have only seen in sci-fi movies.

These big tech companies of the world have segregated the world audience into several groups. Supporters of one company would strongly support their company in all it does and often debate with the fans of other companies. What people don’t realize is that every tech company has a different take on technological offerings, and it is the diversity in their work that makes the technological world so interesting and attractive. So what can you expect from the biggest tech companies of the world in the coming times? Here’s an overview.

Apple

Apple has been the biggest innovator in the world in the past even though it has lost its touch a bit in the recent years. However, the company continues to release some of the most powerful tech gadgets in the world such as the iPhone, iPad, Mac, etc.

The most recent announcement from Apple was of its iOS 10 that will be on its upcoming devices. The most awaited device from the company is of course iPhone 7. iPhone 7 will be quite an experience for iPhone users since a lot of new stuff is being introduced on iOS 10.

Apple has also announced that it will not release phones in cycles of 3 years. Within a 3-year cycle the aesthetics of the phone won’t change much, and it will be more about updates on software and upgrades of hardware. IPhone 7 is supposedly going to have to dual cameras on its back.

Some have rumored that iPhone 7 will not have a headphone jack on it. The company is said to have ditched the headphone jack to bring an even slimmer phone to the market. Is there any innovation coming in from Apple? This seems quite unlikely.

Samsung

Samsung is already doing pretty well with its two smartphone lineups: Galaxy S series and Galaxy Note lineup. Samsung’s new Galaxy S7 has been the most admired phone of the year. However, Samsung has been looking into doing other big things in the recent years. It is evident from the presence of its own chips on “some” of the Galaxy S7 models it shipped. Some reports have revealed that Samsung is now going full-on on making chips for not only its phones, but for smartphones made by companies all around the world.

The technology Samsung has developed is said to be more power efficient and it has been given the name of FoWLP. FoWLP stands for fan-out wafer level packaging platform. Samsung has claimed that this particular technology will completely get rid of the need of having a circuit board.

This will allow smartphone makers to make their smartphones less thick. This technology will also consume less energy so the phones will last longer on their batteries. According to some rumors Apple will be using the new technology from Samsung on its iPhone 7. If that’s true, Samsung is definitely on its way to make some name in the world.

Google

Google is probably the biggest tech giant in the world, as it has its hands and feet in so many things, you could write books about them. The company is involved in projects like head transplants, and it is working on creating modular phones that will be like desktop computers (i.e. you can change whatever components you want on your phones).

It is also coming up with a technology that will allow you to do several activities at home with hand gestures. For example, you could reduce the volume of your TV without needing a remote by just gesturing with your hands in the air.

When it comes to the smartphone world, Google is on its way to make Android N a big thing. The company has not been able to come up with a name starting with N. It has a new utility, called Instant App, coming up that has received great attention from reviewers. This tool will allow you to use applications without installing them on your phones. Allo is a messaging application coming from Google with several new features. Google Assistant is now like Siri but several times better as it can answer your questions and converse with you based on your previous conversations.

Sony

While Sony does not get the attention it deserves in the smartphone market, people who have been buying Sony products seem quite satisfied with them, and they never seem to shift their purchasing habits. However, Sony is a company that always likes to experiment with things and bring in innovation. Sony came up with the idea of waterproof and dust-proof phones that is being used by the biggest tech giants of the world, like Samsung, today. However, the future of Sony will be Future Lab Program.

In this particular program, the company is looking at changing the world and how people have been interacting with technology. Sony has promised to bring changes to technology that have not been thought of yet. For example, it is working on a project where a person can see a video and listen to the audio without using any headphones. Sony has promised that it will unveil many prototypes and projects that are going to change the way people have been living with technology. The project N from Sony has already been unveiled and you could say it is the less controversial form of Google Glass.

8 Replacements for Google Notebook

8 Replacements for Google Notebook

Exploring alternatives to Google Notebook? There are more than a few ‘notebooks’ available online these days, although choosing the right one will likely depend on just what you use Google Notebook for.

  1. Zoho Notebook
    If you want to stick with something as close to Google Notebook as possible, Zoho Notebook may just be your best bet. The user interface has some significant changes, but in general, Zoho Notebook has pretty similar features. There is even a Firefox plugin that allows you to highlight content and drop it into your Notebook. You can go a bit further, though, dropping in any spreadsheets or documents you have in Zoho, as well as some applications and all websites — to the point that you can control a desktop remotely if you pare it with something like Zoho Meeting.
  2. Evernote
    The features that Evernote brings to the table are pretty great. In addition to allowing you to capture parts of a website, Evernote has a desktop search tool mobil versions (iPhone and Windows Mobile). It even has an API, if you’ve got any features in mind not currently available. Evernote offers 40 MB for free accounts — if you’ll need more, the premium version is priced at $5 per month or $45 per year. Encryption, size and whether you’ll see ads seem to be the main differences between the free and premium versions.
  3. Net Notes
    If the major allure for Google Notebooks lays in the Firefox extension, Net Notes might be a good alternative. It’s a Firefox extension that allows you to save notes on websites in your bookmarks. You can toggle the Net Notes sidebar and access your notes as you browse. You can also tag websites. Net Notes works with Mozilla Weave if you need to access your notes from multiple computers.
  4. i-Lighter
    You can highlight and save information from any website while you’re browsing with i-Lighter. You can also add notes to your i-Lighted information, as well as email it or send the information to be posted to your blog or Twitter account. Your notes are saved in a notebook on your computer — but they’re also synchronized to the iLighter website. You can log in to the site from any computer.
  5. Clipmarks
    For those browsers interested in sharing what they find with others, Clipmarks provides a tool to select clips of text, images and video and share them with friends. You can easily syndicate your finds to a whole list of sites such as Facebook, Twitter and Digg. You can also easily review your past clips and use them as references through Clipmarks’ website.
  6. UberNote
    If you can think of a way to send notes to UberNote, it can handle it. You can clip material while browsing, email, IM, text message or even visit the UberNote sites to add notes to the information you have saved. You can organize your notes, tag them and even add checkboxes if you want to turn a note into some sort of task list. You can drag and drop information between notes in order to manage them.
  7. iLeonardo
    iLeonardo treats research as a social concern. You can create a notebook on iLeonardo on a particular topic, collecting information online. You can also access other people’s notebooks. It may not necessarily take the place of Google Notebook — I’m pretty sure my notes on some subjects are cryptic — but it’s a pretty cool tool. You can keep notebooks private if you like the interface but don’t want to share a particular project. iLeonardo does allow you to follow fellow notetakers and receive the information they find on a particular topic.
  8. Zotero
    Another Firefox extension, Zotero started life as a citation management tool targeted towards academic researchers. However, it offers notetaking tools, as well as a way to save files to your notebook. If you do a lot of writing in Microsoft Word or Open Office, Zotero might be the tool for you — it’s integrated with both word processing software to allow you to easily move your notes over, as well as several blogging options. Zotero’s interface is also available in more than 30 languages.

I’ve been relying on Google Notebook as a catch-all for blog post ideas — being able to just highlight information and save it is a great tool for a blogger.

In replacing it, though, I’m starting to lean towards Evernote. I’ve found it handles pretty much everything I want, especially with the voice recording feature. I’m planning to keep trying things out for a while yet — I’m sticking with Google Notebook until the Firefox extension quits working — and if you have any recommendations that I missed when I put together this list, I’d love to hear them — just leave a comment!
