There is no doubt that Google Now is one of the best features and selling points of Android. Now Android fans will patronize their favorite mobile OS even more once they hear that Google Now actually has a built-in pedometer. Just recently, a few Android users have spotted a newly-added card into Google Now. Looking at it closely, it appears to be a pedometer which will display the distances that you’ve walked or covered with your bike in the previous month.
It’s important to note that Google has yet to officially announce the feature. For now, we can only rely on the few Android users who were able to see it. “That new card is a pedometer that has been tracking their steps and miles biked over the last couple of months, behind the scenes. I say ‘behind the scenes’ because this is a card that we have yet to see or hear about. In fact, I took a quick look through Google Now settings and could not find this feature mentioned,” writes Droid-Life.

Oakley, the world-renowned creator of sunglasses, sports visors, and ski goggles, is taking the game to a whole new different level. Oakley has just announced a new Android-supported goggles called Airwave. Now available for a hefty price of $599.95, Airwave promises to revolutionize the whole skiing and snowboarding experience by combining its leading optics technology with Android’s wide range of tools and functionalities. Airwave features integrated GPS, Bluetooth support, and a heads up display to gain instant access to information such as maps, temperature, jump analytics, speed, playlists, and even the location of your buddies.
What makes Airwave unique is its ability to view all those vital information within the goggles itself. This will be nifty since users won’t have to take their eyes off the road in order to access information. If you’re still not getting the idea, just think about Google’s Project Glass. Oakley puts its best, “When your teachers and scientists used to describe what would be possible in the future, Airwave is what they were talking about. Built on the bedrock of Oakley performance optics and goggle technology, Airwave is complete with Switchlock Technology that enables you to swap lenses to match your environment without disrupting Airwave?s integrated technologies.”By Ubergizmo.

Just a day after the U.K. court reprimanded the Cupertino-based tech giant for issuing a rather lame and non-compliant statement on its website last week, Apple is now publishing its public apology in U.K. newspapers. If you can still recall, Apple was previously ordered by the court to issue a notice on its website and in several British newspapers that rival Samsung did not copy the iPad. One of the U.K. newspapers publishing Apple’s statement today is Guardian, as seen above.
If you’ll read it carefully, it’s actually the same statement it issued last week on its website, but minus the commentary that got the company into trouble in the first place. Apple’s statement today appears to be printed in 14-pt Arial font, which is the required format that the court ordered. But as to the statement Apple posted on its website, it has since been removed following yesterday’s court order. Apple has yet to post an updated statement. Apple might be able to work its way around the ruling. After all, the company was not required to apologize. It was simply ordered to acknowledge the decision of the court.By Ubergizmo.

Yesterday, the modding gurus at iFixit managed to tear down the iPad mini to pieces and confirmed that it does have stereo speakers and a display driver that is surprisingly made by Samsung. Today, in an attempt to thoroughly understand the differences between the iPad 4 and the iPad 3, iFixit is baring the fourth-generation iPad’s body for us to see. The first obvious difference of the iPad 4 is its Lightning connector and the new model number A1458. But after opening its adhesive-riddled body, iFixit found a new iPad LCD that has been manufactured by LG.
This supports the previous reports that Apple is beginning to move away from Samsung as a supplier. The iPad mini, on the other hand, was a different story. And finally, for the first time, the A6X processor has been uncovered together with its supporting hardware that includes a Hynix H2JTDG8UD2MBR 16GB NAND Flash and an Apple 338S1116 Cirrus Logic Audio Codec. However, iFixit notes that Apple didn’t save any space when it switched to the smaller Lightning connector. “They (Apple) let the Lightning cable sit in a frame the same size as the 30-pin dock connector. We were hoping that space savings would yield bigger, better speakers. Very disappointing, indeed,” iFixit added.By Ubergizmo.
