STREAMING: Google launches Google Play All Access in Germany as Google Play All-Inclusive
Posted by Arne Hess - at 10:01 CET under 04 - Android News

The land of poets and thinkers, the land of Goethe and Schiller is also the land of one of the toughest digital rights and copyrights and therefore it took Google a little bit longer to bring its Google Play Music All Access service to Germany. But today, a year after it originally launched and months, after it hits the European neighbors, Google Play Music has also reached Germany as Google Play All-Inclusive. If you know Spotify, Deezer or Rdio, you know what it is about - it's a monthly music rental service. It allows to play millions of songs, instantly, on any Android and iOS device as well as on the web. On top of this, it brings custom radio which can be created from any song, album, artist or genre - with no skip limits.

Quip is a modern word processor that enables users to create beautiful documents on any device, from phones to tablets to the laptop or desktop. It combines documents and messages into a single chat-like "thread" of updates - making collaboration easy.

Posted by Arne Hess - at 17:20 CET under 01 - General News

Schneider-Kreuznach is one of the more renowned optical manufactures in the world, and it's U.S. subsidiary Schneider Optics, which has been producing the highest quality optics on the market for over 90 years, has recently announced the availability of its iPro Lens system for the Samsung Galaxy S4. The idea behind the iPro Lens (which was so far already available for the iPhone and iPad) is that it's not to offer you another camera, but enhances the one you already have. Your smartphone or your tablet. Therefore, each Lens easily twists on and off and lets you capture more in every shot. The pocket-sized Lens case securely protects your Lenses, doubles as a universal tripod mount, and also makes a comfortable handle.

The Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) announced the adoption of updates to the Bluetooth Core Specification. Bluetooth 4.1 is said to be an important evolutionary update to the wireless specification, which experienced a revolutionary update in July 2010 with Bluetooth Smart, the intelligent, low-energy technology enabling the Internet of Things (IoT). The updates will improve consumer usability with increased co-existence support for LTE, bulk data exchange rates and aid developer innovation by allowing devices to support multiple roles simultaneously. The new release also lays the groundwork for IP-based connections, extending Bluetooth technology's role as the essential wireless link for the IoT.

Posted by Arne Hess - at 12:34 CET under 08 - Reviews

Announced back in July, I finally got the chance to play a little bit longer with Nokia's Windows Phone camera flagship, the Nokia Lumia 1020, which went first on sale in the U.S. The Lumia 1020 is the Windows Phone successor of the Symbian-based Nokia 808 and like its step-brother it's featuring Nokia's unique 41 megapixel PureView technology. When launched, no other Windows Phone was as powerful as the Lumia 1020 which runs Microsoft's Windows Phone 8 and is powered by a 1.5 GHz dual core Qualcomm S4 CPU. The European version supports quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE at 850/900/1800/1900 MHz, quadband UMTS/HSPA+ up to 42.2 Mbps at 850/900/1900/2100 MHz as well as pentaband LTE up to 100 Mbps at 800/900/1800/2100/2600 MHz; the AT&T version features slightly different bands, optimized for North America.
