Will iWatch Wireless Charging make it Device of the Year?

Will iWatch Wireless Charging make it Device of the Year?

After Samsung launched Gear, now it is Apple’s turn to pull something out of its sleeve. Rumor mill is buzzing with news that the prototype of iWatch is already done and will soon hit the market. Apple’s smart watch is one step ahead, as it comes with the proximity-based wireless charging. The only challenge is that this smart watch will have is the recharging. It would have to be recharged frequently. It will be based on a magnetic device which will automatically charge the watch within a range of 1 meter.

Wireless charging

Wireless charging is a growing concept and is soon catching up with several gadgets and device. Though this is a fairly new concept, it has a lot of future and room to go. Wireless charging is still in its teething stages. Many industry experts are wondering if this technology would soon seep into other smart devices like the iPad and the iPhone. Knowing Apple, they will probably adapt this technology to all their devices. Will the next launch be called iPhone 6 and will it have proximity-based wireless charging?

An interesting concept

It is only a rumor, yet an interesting one. Apple products, especially the iPhone lost its steam over the last two years. Samsung Galaxy had taken over the industry expert’s seat. If Apple comes up with the proximity based wireless charging to its next iPhone launch, then it could reclaim its position as the world leader in the mobile phone market. Today, the biggest challenge with devices is their battery life.

Even though mobile phones offer a lot of apps and tools, they usually tend to drain the battery life. Constantly charging the device is annoying. Proximity-based charging may not be the perfect solution, but it can make app user’s life easier.

Market stands

There are too many wireless charging standards in the market already. Will Apple’s upcoming technology, as being slated; be able to withstand this competition? This is yet to be seen. However, if the rumors are true, then this is the right time for Apple to launch such a technology. Apple has everything going for it, their seamless design, sense of perfection and flawless working make Apple products great. Nonetheless, the only problem as of now seems to be stiffer competition. Apple is losing out in the competition by delaying the launch of its products.

Challenges

Samsung Gear was launched first and it has received a positive response from the market. They are already improvising on the gear standards. The challenge with proximity-based wireless charging for Apple would be to prove its mettle. It is a gamble and a concept that may or may not take off.  If it does, then it could be a blessing in the form of a device for Apple. In the last decade, wireless technology has become successful by and large.

However, it lies in the hands of mobile engineers at Apple to take the wireless technology in devices one step ahead. If they are able to prove that this product has a seamless functionality just like other Apple products, then it could be the device of the decade. As of now, the prototype or the model watches from Apple are doing the rounds in the form of pictures. They look cool and are rumored to come in two different sizes. The rest is left to be seen when the actual watches are unveiled.

Conclusion

Every innovative technological product is like a breath of fresh air. With so many devices being launched every year, hopefully the iWatch will be launched soon. The markets are always willing to welcome new entrants as it makes business brisker. And if iWatch’s proximity-based charging can be extended to iPhone 6, it would be the ultimate icing on the cake!

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!
