First Surface With Pro Version Of Windows 8

First Surface With Pro Version Of Windows 8
The first Surface with Pro version of Windows 8 are ready. The new 'tablets' and have left the production line and will be available to users in the coming weeks.  

Thus, it seems that Microsoft is going to fulfill its Surface calendar 2013.
The range of 'tablets' Surface is the big bet for Microsoft to promote its new operating system in the field of 'tablets'. 

The company has already launched in several markets, not in Spain, the first models that incorporate Windows RT. However, by the time nothing was known about the Pro version of Surface.
These models incorporate boast more power and performance. So far Microsoft had no advance details about the release of these terminals. However, as reported in the Microsoft Surface product manager, Panos Panay, has ensured that the Surface Pro are just around the corner.
Through his Twitter account, Panay confirmed Tuesday that the Pro Surfaces were coming off the production line and, therefore, will be available to users in the coming weeks.
Microsoft expects the arrival of Surface Pro is the device that gets off on the market do its 'tablets'. This week one of the UBS analysts said that sales of 'tablet' in the fourth quarter of 2012 were well below the estimate. Specifically, the company had only managed to sell one million units of its 'tablet' with Windows RT.
This data is not encouraging, especially when compared with estimated sales of Surface great rival, the iPad. Specifically, it appears that Apple has sold 20 million different models of 'tablet', which remains the market leader. Thus, the Cupertino continue well ahead of Microsoft in this market.
The explanation of the low volume of sales is based on two aspects. The first is the limited initial sales campaign developed by Microsoft.  

The company has been limited to a few points marketing your 'tablet', which for example has not come to Spain. Second, the delay of Windows 8 Pro version has also been a factor that has limited the sale.

Asus Padfone Want To Make A Windows

Asus Padfone Want To Make A Windows: Asus and Microsoft are in talks for the Taiwanese manufacturer to create smartphones with the company's operating system.

Inside the Asus interest would also be the possibility of creating a version of its Padfone with Windows 8.
Asus has managed to carve a niche in the catalog of interesting mobile device manufacturers. 

The company has signed important agreements with companies like Google, to who makes the successful Nexus 7. In addition, Asus has some devices that excel in quality, among which shines the Padfone.

More than one device, the Padfone is a concept. The idea is to have a 'smartphone' powerful you can become a 'tablet' as required. For this, the Padfone has a phone and a stand with screen size and 'tablet', which is activated when the 'smartphone'.

The idea that Asus has served to have an almost unique device that has managed to differentiate the company.  

However, it seems that Asus has not triumphed in the U.S. and is considering an alliance with Microsoft for this. Until now, models of smartphones and Asus Padfone with Android have been released, though that could change.
The Taiwanese company is negotiating with the ability to launch Microsoft mobile devices with Windows 8 and special sense for Asus would do with a new Padfone.

According to The Wall Street Journal, the companies have held talks to reach a licensing agreement that allows the release of smartphones Asus Windows Phone 8. Thus, Asus would compete with other manufacturers like Nokia, HTC and Samsung, which already have WP8 terminals.

However, a Padfone with Windows 8 is the idea that best fits the desires of Asus. In fact, one of its officers has already confirmed this possibility. "Our concept Padfone, more phone 'tablet', I think it makes sense with Windows 8," said the vice president of mobility Asus, Benson Lin. 

In any case, before you see a Windows 8 would launch Padfone smartphones with Windows Phone normal.  

The reason could be to start the relationship between the two with the most simple, and then launch a more complex equipment as would be the Padfone. 

However, the decision to start with only smartphones could be due to the difficulty of choosing a version of Windows for the Padfone.

Microsoft currently has three main versions of Windows shared kernel. On one side is Windows Phone, for a 'smartphone'. Furthermore is Windows 8, which is divided into RT version basically for 'tablets' and ARM architecture computers, and Windows 8 Pro, and more powerful devices PC.

The problem would be to choose between these versions for the Padfone, a 'smartphone' which becomes 'tablet'.

Faced with this dilemma, the differentiation of versions is blurred by Microsoft, making Windows Phone and Windows RT mix. Thus, Asus could wait to see the future of Windows before launching a terminal as the Padfone, half 'smartphone' and half 'tablet'. Meanwhile, it seems that the company did try her luck with simple phones with Windows Phone.

Flexible Displays From Samsung

Flexible Displays From Samsung: One advantage of OLED technology is that it allows much finer screens than the conventional LED.
Flexible Displays From SamsungSamsung has used this feature to further the development of a flexible screens that could revolutionize the industry.

South Korea presented their progress in this field in the CES 2013 held last week in Las Vegas. In one of his press conferences, taught the display, which has a name, Youm, and several concepts and prototypes.

The screen has a negligible thickness and can play with different designs as possible with current technology. An official of Samsung first demoed a functional screen which reproduced Need for Speed ​​Most Wanted.Since this show is quite impressive.

It almost looks staged. Then Samsung showed some design concepts, some more finals as a device in which the screen is folded into the song to show notifications.

Much more surprising are other concepts, like a sort of strip in which a screen is wound. This device has dimensions almost of a pen, but the screen can be unrolled to take the size of a tablet.

Fold looks like a mobile phone, but inside is a folded OLED screen. Once opened, the screen dimensions are doubled to facilitate the consumption of certain content.

Certainly, an interesting concept, but so far away. However, Samsung seems unwilling to give ground on innovation not to abandon the privileged position that is gaining in the field of mobility.

China Plans To Launch 20 Spacecraft In 2013

China has announced its spatial plan for 2013, which is intended to put into orbit a dozen space vehicles, including manned spacecraft Shenzhou-10. 

China plans to launch 20 spacecraft in 2013As reported by the Corporation China Aerospace Science and Technology told Xinhua, currently in Earth orbit devices operate over 200 launches as China, representing one-fifth of all space bodies in the world.China has indicated that 2013 will prove to be the Chinese space station, Tiangong 1, with the arrival of three new astronauts to the module. 

This time the mission the crew will perform a manual coupling between the space station and Shenzhou-10 in the traveling.The Eastern country in 2011 had already tested the coupling of another ship, in this case the Shenzhou-8, the Tiangong-1 module, but automatically, as it was not a manned spacecraft. It was the first coupling of this type in the country's history. 

In fact, China became the third country after Russia and the United States, to conduct a two-orbital coupling automatic space vehicles.It is hoped that the arrival of Chinese astronauts to space occurs in June, becoming the fourth manned mission holding the country and the second in which a woman involved.After the trips made in 2003 and 2005 and a spacewalk in 2008, in June 2012, astronauts Liu Yang, Liu and Wang Jing Haipeng, all pilots Chinese armed forces, successfully completed the Shenzhou mission in September, ten days in space, where astronauts conducted scientific experiments and technical tests on Tiangong 1.The goal of the Chinese space program is to turn the module on a space station by 2020 and, as indicated by CASC, in the coming years will continue performing tests to verify proper operation.

66% Of The CEOs Worldwide In Internet

66% Of The CEOs Worldwide In Internet
66% Of The CEOs Of Large Companies Worldwide In Internet: 66 percent of CEOs of large global companies are present on the Internet through the company's Web site, video and social networks, up from 36 percent in 2010.

According to the study, the rapid growth between 2010 and 2012 of the CEOs in the network comes mainly from its participation in the company's Web site, from 32 percent to 50 percent, and in this video, 18 percent 40 percent.

Specifically, 50 percent of CEOs visible on their company websites usually appear in the main pages and tabs or links, for example, letters, photographs and videos.

"The use of the company's Web to add information on the CEO is a first step in the socialization of this and is the basis of sociability in some global markets," said the agency.

As for social networks, these managers have increased their presence only through these forums, from 16 percent in 2010 to 18 percent in 2012.

For the creative director of Weber Shandwick Digital practice, James Warren, while public use of social networks by CEOs has grown considerably, the overall increase sociability of these indicate the likelihood that the networks are monitored as social tool 'business intelligence' and use this knowledge in other sector of its activities outside the networks.


In this regard, the agency has indicated that deserves special attention "false profiles" of CEOs in social networks.

Approximately one third of CEOs have their names attached to these accounts, with profiles containing inaccurate or false information about companies and executives or, in some cases, several false accounts of the same CEO.

Strange Planet With A Radius Of Proportion

Detected A Strange Planet With A Radius Of Proportion To Its Mass: An international team of scientists, including researchers are from the National University of Distance Education and the Instituto de Astrofisica de Canarias, has discovered a planet outside our solar system that has features " unusual ".  

Strange Planet With A Radius Of ProportionAs explained by experts, has a radius of proportion to its mass does not follow the current theories of planet formation."It is a special planet because it has a very large radius, given its mass and age, and according to current theories of planet formation," said researcher Luis Sarro UNED Baro, who pointed out that these theories predict that radii of the newly formed planets decrease with the passage of time as they radiate its internal energy.So, if you consider that the discovered exoplanet and its parent star formed 600 million years ago, the body should be sized 20 percent higher than that of Jupiter and not 50 percent, as shown.To perform this finding, published in 'Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society', astronomers have worked with the United Kingdom Infrared Telescope located in Hawaii and have used infrared photometry techniques.The infrared photometry used by scientists is a common technique to detect planets in direct images, but not to find them through their transits or eclipses.  

By measuring the brightness of hundreds of thousands of stars in the same region of sky over time, can detect bodies in orbit around them if the motion is such that, at some point, the planet passes in front, an eclipse occurs and decreases the apparent brightness of the star.With this technique has been shown that the exoplanet is a gaseous body, known as 'hot Jupiters', because it shares the characteristics of the gas giant, but orbits its star (WTS-1) at a distance much less than that This makes the Sun"For comparison, the Earth is one astronomical unit away from its star, Jupiter is 5.2 astronomical units and WTS-1b, only 47 thousandths of astronomical unit (0.047) of yours," he explained astrophysicist.Four times the gas giantThe exoplanet's radius is 1.5 times the mass of Jupiter and its four times higher. It is located in the disk of the Milky Way, 10,400 light years away from the Earth. Meanwhile, the star has a radius about 15 percent higher than the Sun and its temperature is higher.Another common feature of exoplanet-any 'Jupiter caliente'-is believed to not be created in the same location where you are now, but much farther from their star and subsequently moved to the current position.The closeness between the two bodies WTS-1b places away from the habitable zone but that does not necessarily mean that it can not accommodate lifestyles. "On Earth, life exists in places such adverse conditions as Rio Tinto, Antarctica or ocean vents, and that years ago was unthinkable," he pointed Sarro.
