iPad Controlled Variable Street Lighting To Be Rolled Out Across Central London

Of course its no surprise about the new Apple’s tablet is the most popular and highly-integrated slate that is available currently, and when talking about street lighting, Wesminister City Council has officially announced that it will soon be rolling out new smart street lighting that can be an iPad controled variable. With over 100 million iPads shipped since the original launch in 2010, and that total being added to daily as consumers grab the fourth-generation iPad and iPad mini, Apple are streets ahead of the competition in the tablet market.

Need any proof? The Central London is preparing to make significant investment in iPad controled street lighting throughout London shoulg go some way to provide it. Street lights which can alert the local council when they are broken or need replacing are to be installed in central London.

When talked about street lighting, Councilors and local government officials have been far looking for a way to reduce the cost associated with the vast amount of lighting along the streets in the central London and have been running a pilot scheme involving the system in an attempt to gauge how successful the move would be. The new smart street lights roll-out of the scheme will take place over the next four years will replace around 14,000 central London street lights adapted with the new smart technology.

Replacing the local street lighting with the iPad controlled system will allow council employed engineers to easily monitor the status of the lighting network and quickly respond to any issues or problems that are highlighted on what would essentially be a dedicated mobile or web app running on the iPad.

In an effort to save the cost associated with running the UK’s vast public street lighting system, local councils have experimented with actually about switching off street lights to save energy and costs, but this was not considered appropriate for Westminster, so an alternative, or ‘third way’, variable lighting solution has been found.

The council says roll-out means an initial £3.25m investment which will be recouped through energy and maintenance savings within seven years, and the technology will go on saving council tax payers £420,000 a year from 2015/16 onwards.

This is the first system of its kind to be used in the UK and it will offer an excellent way to monitor street lighting levels and reliability, and the use of an iPad application, engineers will be able to instantly see when a street lamp is not functioning correctly; it even has the intelligence to predict when a lamp is likely to fail too. In addition to the seven-year payback period it has also been estimated that £420,000 a year will be knocked off the bill of council tax payers in that vicinity. Westminster City Council have calculated that the scheme will come attached with a seven-year payback period.

There are many parts of the country were local councils are already trialling different cost saving schemes for street lighting and most just involve turning them off. The smart lighting system is yet another example of local government adopting the advanced technology on the market to maximize efficiency in the area. The iPad controlled scheme may offer the savings that the councils need to make without degrading the current levels of street lighting.

With the education industry and local government having enough faith and confidence in the iPad, the device can only go from strength to strength. (source: West London Today | via: BBC)

7.85″ Sized iPad To Be Called iPad Mini “Confirmed”, iPod Nano To Get Wi-Fi Support [REPORT]

According to the recent reports the smaller sized Apple’s tablet would be named the iPad Mini will definitely receive the “mini” moniker, whereas the iPod nano will be treated to some WiFi connectivity – allowing users to connect to the cloud in order to access music, all came through the Japanese Apple blog Macotakara about the smaller iPad.

Though we’ve seen package of handful leaked front panels that reportedly belong to the next-gen iPod touch, information regarding the mp3 player has been extremely scarce as of late. Here are some images that said and believed the cases of the purported new iPad touch, surfaced on the internet web.

According to the previous report from Japanese blog Macotakara pointed to a similar mystery hole on the rear of the iPod touch, which is believed to be either a rear microphone, or a new speaker. The cases could also give away possible details as to the spec of the 5th generation iPod touch 5.

While the blogosphere has, since day one, referred to the purported 7.85-inch iPad as the iPad mini, but been hesitant on confirming whether this is the particular reference Apple will choose upon launching it. The device is expected to arrive in October – around a month after the next-gen iPhone is unleashed.

Continuing with Macotakara report, the iPod nano, runs on software reflective of iOS, will also be getting some kind of Wi-Fi support. The Apple’s design ill utilize its watch-sized device to direct more consumers towards the iTunes Stores. iPod Nano users with WiFi connection will be able to re-download past music, movies or TV shows onto their small device whenever they’re connected to wireless hotspot.

With regards to the nano, the Wi-Fi claims could well be true, and it seems only natural that, after grooming the device by offering an iOS-like feel to the current generation, Apple would step up the connectivity stakes once more. This is a ggod though to connect additional devices to the cloud. Apple seems to be getting things running smoothly with iCloud and associated services.

Apple will be holding two separate media events in the next two months. We expect to see these new iPods appear in the second, October-based event, alongside the new iPad Mini.

The Way To Turn Your iPad Into A Rugged Notebook With This Nifty Little Utility [VIDEO]

Considering Apple’s words that says it won’t make tablet-laptops when the iPad launched two years ago, many add-on products, I mean accessories based on hardware came in to the scene to produce a product that can turn your iPad into a work-friendly Notebook. Similar to that today we came through on of that utility called CruxSkink, promises to transform your Apple tablet into a powerful iPad laptop. Details after the jump!

We have been still dreaming about a notebook form factor device that runs iOS, and we, you, have invested in purchasing iPad, so, it is now possible to ditch your tablet for your business trips or even work. Apple’s iPad really changed the way of computing technology, with the used to fold-out structure complete with a physical keyboard, the Cupertino company’s offering was truly touch-based.

Being an iPad 2 tablet user, I have seen lots of other products that includes the NoteBookCase and the Brydge in the past. Now we are today adding another one to the list: the CrunxSKUNK. The team behind this amazingly rugged accessory, the Crux is promising the case will be able to turn your iPad into an lll-conquering Notebook. The iPad is the device of choice for browsing, checking e-mail, listening to music and watching movies, the notebook is still at the heart of productive computing.

Since two-and-half years of the iPad in and out, accessory makers have built a sort of products to morph the iPad into some like laptop, with varying levels of success. The ability to dock a device and type and comfortably using a physical keyboard has its obvious appeals, unfortunately, a few manufacturers seem to have pinned the tail on the powerful device.

Let us talk about SKUNK, first of all take a deep breath of fresh air “turning your tablet into a notebook” market comes in the form of a beautifully-crafted product. CruxSKUNK is yet another Kickstarter campain, thus still requires your support to generate and bring the quickery-named peripheral to the market, but the progress has certainly potential to be a real winner.

So, what can you expect from CruxSKUNK that makes it an unique product? The Crux team like a genuine product designer has really assessed the current state of cases which create that laptop feel, and identified the common constraints such as lack of strength, inability to mount on the lap.

The SKUNK is machined from a single piece of aircraft-grade aluminum — similar to the process Apple uses to machine its MacBooks — and its parts are sandblasted and anodized to match the finish of your iPad. The keyboard looks almost identical to that of the world’s thinnest notebook, and despite the Apple logo pointing in the wrong direction and it’s full-sized, with a QWERTY layout, and has raised keys for easier typing.

The project enables all the default functionality in order to connect your iPad via Bluetooth, and Crux says that it only needs to be charged once a month via a USB cable. But, it needs $90,000 through Kickstarter, and with 40 days to go.

If you want to get your hands on one, check out CruxSKUNK’s Kickstarter page, where you can get your name on the pre-order list for $135. Shipping is expected to start this December 2012. Think about it and imagine your iPad transformed into a Alienware-style notebook with a lap.

Separate iPad Mini Event ‘Confirmed’ For October, Followed Next iPhone Launching In September

This rumor is coming true? Whereas everyone thought Apple would be announcing the next iPhone, iOS 6, and a new, smaller iPad at a single event, but this latest report says, that Cupertino will indeed hold a separate iPad mini announcement in October following the release of the new iPhone in next month “September”.

According to this report from John Gruber a few days back – repose towards the idea of the smartphone dropping first in September, with the “iPad Mini” following October.  Daring Fireball’s John Gruber originally proposed this theory, and the well-sourced Jim Dalrympleseconded Gruber’s take.

Check this out on what AllThingsD has ‘confirmed’ that Apple will hold two separate events to launch the iPhone and iPad.:

“Apple’s next generation iPhone and its so-called “iPad mini” will debut at two separate events this fall, rather than a single one as has been widely speculated, according to several sources.

    Only after the next generation iPhone is out the door and on sale will Apple announce the smaller iPad it’s been working on. That device, which is expected to have a display of less than eight inches, will be uncrated at a second special event, which sources said is currently scheduled for October.

Means Apple would be announcing their mini tablet and next-generation iPhone in two seperate events according to the yesterdays report. The iPhone 5 (new iPhone) will be more likely be showcased on September 12th before on general sale nine days later of 21st, while smaller posing a 7.85-inch, cheaper iPad Mini is expected to follow at some point in October.

It is near us not more than a couple of weeks we’ll see the next iPhone’s release, and what it gets we already know. The form factor will remain strikingly similar to what we’ve seen with the iPhone 4 / 4S, although there will still be quite a few significant changes.

More considered with the new iPhone would be the screen that will become longer, width and dpi remains the same, with 4-inces diameter of the display a first for iPhone. To access the new screen, the device itself is purported as becoming slightly larger, and the home button looks a tad smaller from the leaks we already shown off.

With the polished, aluminum finish to the back, the FaceTime camera will take you up more central position, with the headphone jack will move to the bottom of the device, whereas the smaller USB dock connector will be significantly tiny than we have seen in previous iDevice production.

It said that the iPad Mini would also include the same smaller dock connector, imitates like an larger iPod touch due to thinner bezels along the side, and of course this isn’t the perfect news, while there will be some changes in store and also expected a front and back-facing snappers to capture. Storage space is likely to settle wth an 8GB, and the price are unlikely to surface until the special event in October, which would cost in retail at 200-300 buck or so.

Stay tuned and check the tow back-to-back Apple events, one for next iPhone launch in September and followed the next iPad Mini event confirmed for October? Still no words from the Cupertino company yet.

iPhone 4S Siri Successfully Ported to iPad 1

iPhone 4S‘s Siri was successfully ported to iPad1 by a developer Jack. A few days ago, hacker Steven has got Siri Working on iPhone 4, but was unable to communicate with Apple Servers. This was due to the missing GPU Driver in iPhone 4. However, Steven has given up his work on Porting Siri to iPhone 4 and is hardly working on it. Now, another developer Jack, has taken up the work to Port Siri on iPhone4. Though he could go little forward, he managed to Port Siri onto iPad1. Below are the few screenshots of Siri on iPad1:

SIri ported to iPad 1

Though Jack could successfully Port iPhone 4S onto iPad 1, it isn’t communicating with the Apple servers. But, as Steven told, any iOS can be
spoofed like an iPhone 4S and communicate with Apple’s Servers. If nothing works, Siri Voice can be used to send queries to Google.
