Continuum

Microsoft mengumumkan Continuum:

In an on-stage demo, Microsoft’s Joe Belfiore connected a phone to a monitor, keyboard and mouse, and instantly the UI he was using adapted to the new inputs and outputs. While the operating system interface we saw on screen didn’t look exactly like Windows 10 on a laptop or desktop computer, the applications shown (especially PowerPoint) did. Instead of making minor adjustments to a presentation using a 5-inch screen, you can simply connect to an HDMI-compatible monitor and have all the space and tools you would on a full PC.

Kalau diperhatikan, Continuum ini sangat mirip dengan Convergence dari Ubuntu. Dan sepertinya akan ada adu balap antara Canonical dengan Microsoft karena menurut kabar “Ubuntu Phone as a PC” sudah akan tersedia di tahun ini. Semoga saja benar. Semoga saja Canonical deliver.

Nice try, Samsung!

Samsung cukup cerdik memanfaatkan iklan seperti ini, karena spot iklannya akan muncul paling atas 😀

Grooveshark resmi ditutup

Setelah beberapa tahun yang penuh kontroversi, Grooveshark akhirnya resmi ditutup. Dalam pesan yang diposting pada situs resminya, Grooveshark mengakui kesalahannya dan menyesali praktek bisnisnya yang telah merugikan perusahaan rekaman dan merekomendasikan orang-orang untuk beralih ke layanan lain seperti Spotify, Deezer, Google Play, Beats Music, Rhapsody, Rdio dan layanan lainnya yang tentu saja legal.

Berikut kutipan pesan dari halaman depan situs Grooveshark:

Dear music fans,

Today we are shutting down Grooveshark.
We started out nearly ten years ago with the goal of helping fans share and discover music. But despite best of intentions, we made very serious mistakes. We failed to secure licenses from rights holders for the vast amount of music on the service.

That was wrong. We apologize. Without reservation.

As part of a settlement agreement with the major record companies, we have agreed to cease operations immediately, wipe clean all the data on our servers and hand over ownership of this website, our mobile apps and intellectual property, including our patents and copyrights.

Dan sebagai bagian dari perjanjiannya dengan perusahaan rekaman, katanya Grooveshark akan langsung berhenti beroperasi dan juga menghapus seluruh data-data pengguna yang telah diupload ke server mereka. Kepemilikan situs juga akan dialihkan dan aplikasi mobile Grooveshark akan dihapus.

Wow. RIP Grooveshark :'( , sayang sekali, padahal ada banyak playlist favorit saya tersimpan di Grooveshark.

Memory leak di Lollipop

Dikutip dari artikel SamMobile yang berjudul “Poor RAM management affecting the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge”:

Android is designed to remove older apps from memory to free up RAM for current tasks, but the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge seem to take it too far despite having 3GB of RAM (and considerably less bloat than previous Samsung devices taking up memory.) However, the fact that despite killing apps too quickly the phones seem to have very little available RAM suggests it’s a bug and not something deliberate.

Ahh.. Android.

Ada yang bilang ini masalah di Galaxy S6/S6 Edge, fans Samsung bilang ini salahnya Google. Apa pun itu, kasihan pengguna Samsung yang sama sekali belum kebagian Lollipop sampai sekarang. Mereka bersabar berbulan-bulan demi software yang buggy.

Rooting Galaxy S6 akan mematikan Samsung Pay

Saya baru tahu, kalau ternyata rooting akan membuat pengguna kehilangan fitur paling penting di Samsung Galaxy S6.

Dikutip dari SamMobile:

we advise you to refrain from rooting your device, as it will disable Samsung Pay, just like KNOX. When you root your device, the integrity gets breached, which is necessary for important and sensitive features like mobile payments.

Rooting di smartphone Android lainnya tidak mematikan Google Wallet. Apple Pay pun masih bisa bekerja dengan normal pada iPhone yang dijailbreak.

Apa ada expert Samsung/Android yang bisa memberi penjelasan ke saya, kenapa rooting di Galaxy S6 bisa mematikan fitur Samsung Pay? Apa Samsung tidak mampu membuat Samsung Pay seaman Apple Pay sehingga harus menempuh jalan anti-rooting?

What? Samsung anti-rooting? Kedengaran sangat Apple sekal… Oh, wait… ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

Fanboy level: baku tikam

Dua orang pria yang merupakan teman sekamar di kota Tulsa negara bagian Oklahoma, AS, terlibat perkelahian berdarah gara-gara memperdebatkan mana yang terbaik, iPhone atau Android. Luar biasa.

Dikutip dari KTUL.com:

Two men are hospitalized after an alcohol-fueled argument began over which phone is better: iPhone or Android.

Tulsa police say a woman found a man covered in blood, stumbling around the parking lot of the Evergreen Apartments around 1 a.m.

When police arrived at the apartment complex, they learned that the roommates had been drinking and arguing over their mobile phones.

Police say the two men broke beer bottles and stabbed each other with them. One of the men smashed a bottle over the back of the other man’s head.

“There are so many fakes”

Oh well… CEO Xiaomi komplain karena produknya banyak dikloning…

Dikutip dari Business Insider:

At a press conference last week, Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun lamented the proliferation of counterfeit manufacturers capitalising on the company’s wild popularity. “What is the biggest problem? There are so many fakes. If there were no counterfeits, our sales would be double or triple,” Lei said.
