Apple pulled out all the stops today in one of the biggest Apple events ever

I’m sitting down in my hotel room. It’s evening, and I’m taking a deep breath.

Today we had one of the biggest Apple events I can remember. Between hardware and software, Apple announced at least six new products today, seven if you include Apple Fusion Drive, and a whopping 23 new products if you include different models and build configurations.

Here’s the full list:

Tim Cook spoke to the huge number of new products — and his team’s effort — at the end of the event.

“We told you we’d deliver amazing innovation this year,” Cook said, “and I hope you’ll agree we did.” Leer más “Apple pulled out all the stops today in one of the biggest Apple events ever | venturebeat.com”

Dropbox para Android soporta transmisión de vídeos en su nueva actualización


 | http://wwwhatsnew.com

Hace escasos días que tenemos con nosotros la nueva versión 2.1.4 de Dropbox para Android, donde destaca el soporte de transmisión de vídeo, de manera que cuando seleccionemos cualquier vídeo de los que tengamos albergados en nuestra cuenta de Dropbox, comenzará su reproducción en lugar de iniciarse la descarga, como hasta ahora.

Lo mejor de todo es que admite una amplia variedad de formatos de vídeo, y además, si queremos descargarlo e incluirlo en nuestra tarjeta de memoria, también es posible. Esta novedad está presente para aquellos de nosotros que tengamos instalado en nuestros terminales la versión 4 de Android. La otra novedad de esta versión es que se añade soporte al idioma coreano.

“I’m Feeling Lucky” button launched last year | Improving video awesomeness with one click

This breakthrough in video awesomeness is possible thanks to our research team who expanded on the “I’m Feeling Lucky” button launched last year, automatically detecting if stabilization or color correction would be helpful for you. The result is a one-click option rolling out over the next few days that cures these two symptoms now, and more planned in the future.

So you keep capturing those awesome moments, and we’ll keep on ways to help you make those videos even more awesome.


http://youtube-global.blogspot.com.ar/

Whether you’re perfecting your double backflip at the park, capturing a flash mob on your phone, or enjoying singing in a subway, it’s not easy to get your video quality perfect. Sometimes videos suffer from symptoms like “shaky-camera-itis” or “augmented-darkness-levels” that keep viewers from seeing just how awesome your video really is. We made a big step last year with the YouTube Video Editor, and now we’re adding a feature that does the work of curing these symptoms for you.

If you uploada video that’s shaky or dark, we’ll automatically offer to fix it for you, creating an updated version of your video on YouTube.When you upload a video that could use a fixup, you’ll see a notification bar on the Upload page and in your Video Manager. Click the button to fix it, and you’ll see a side by side preview to decide if you want to accept the edits.

Select “Okay” if you’d like us to update your video to the preview version (you can always undo this later). Even if you’re uploading a video from your mobile device, the Video Manager on the desktop will give you a notice if this video can be cured as well. Here’s an overview: Leer más ““I’m Feeling Lucky” button launched last year | Improving video awesomeness with one click”

5 Alternatives to Consider After Spotify’s Free Music Cutoff

Trendsetting music lovers who signed up for Spotify when it first hit the U.S. on July 14, 2011 will soon encounter roadblocks. For instance, come the six-month deadline to switch to Spotify Unlimited ($4.99 per month) or Spotify Premium ($9.99 per month), Spotify users will only be able to play their favorite songs a maximum of five times, and free streaming will cap at 10 hours per month.

It’s no doubt the unlimited access to a huge library of music — about 8 million tracks — is one of the features that loyal Spotify users love.

Other features include the ability to make playlists of favorite songs (up to 10,000 tracks per list) and social integration to Facebook. Songs you play automatically display on your Facebook Timeline and desktop sidebar. Plus, access content via share buttons and a convenient search bar. With Spotify Premium, users enjoy an offline mode, which means they can listen to playlists on the plane, train or beach. Finally, radio stations specifically tailor to a user’s specific artist or genre preferences.

If you’re an early Spotify user, you may be looking for a new, free music-streaming service as Spotify’s six months of free listening comes to an end.
