It was all about the wearables. This years CES conference was the real inflection point for wearable devices, John Curran, a communications and tech consultant, told the Financial Times. Its about these devices moving from niche applications and early adopters into much more mainstream products. Wearable computers include a variety of devices, from eyewear such as Google Glass to smartwatches such as the Samsung Gear. In general, though, wearables are defined as miniature electronic devices that are worn somewhere on a users body and enable users to more tightly integrate computing experiences into everyday life. That makes sense when you think about a runner being able to look down at her smartwatch to find a new route or check her pulse, but what does this look like in a business? Companiesand IT depart- mentsare just starting to figure that out. The promise of these devices will start to be seen in businesses in 2014, said JP Gownder, a Forrester Research analyst who follows wearable computers. Enterprises need to start putting together a road map for thinking about how wearables can improve their busi- nesses. 6. 18 AVRIL 2014 - Vigie Piranha 6 CarPlay sintgre chez Alpine et Pioneer -Journal du Geek CarPlay, le systme daffichage et doptimisation dapplications iOS dApple dans les crans des tableaux de bord, ne va pas se limiter une poigne de vhicules neufs et hors de prix, les premires voitures quips CarPlay cette anne devant sortir des lignes de production de Ferrari, Mercedes-Benz ou Volvo.

The major developments were in the creation of steerable antennas and efficient radio amplifiers for the hotspots. DARPA also created a housing for the hotspots, which will eventually be mounted on drones that have traditionally been used for surveillance. DARPAs hope is to have the hotspots communication speeds rival those of a 4G cell network, eventually allowing the drones to easily extend connectivity into remote locations where the military may be otherwise unable to access intel- ligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance data. The hotspot program began back in 2012, and it just started its second phase last month, in which it will begin to integrate the wireless radios onto ground vehicles. The hotspots will eventually be tested on a network of multiple drones in the third and final phase. Though its not stated how the hotspots are currently communicating, DARPA stated back in 2012 that it expects to take advantage of commercial technologies, such as Wi-Fi, WiMax, or LTE. The hotspots will be compatible with military pro- tocols too, however. Were pleased with the technical achievements weve seen so far, DARPA program manager Dick Ridgway says in a statement, referring to the programs work on antennas and amplifiers. Though DARPA clearly has a far different goal than Google and Facebook, their similar ideas suggest that this type of project could become an increasingly easy one to get off the ground. 8. 18 AVRIL 2014 - Vigie Piranha 8 Athos Base Series : les vtements connects de fitness - AthosBaseSeriesestunelignedevtementsconnectspourlefitnessquimesurelactivitde16groupesmusculaires distincts et de prodiguer des conseils en temps rel.

Bloomberg Businessweek Designed by a small team from Israel, the app is intended as an alternative to the smartphone loyalty cards offered by the likes of Starbucks (SBUX). Its a similar service, says Gilad Rotem, a co-founder of the startup, which is also called CUPS. Were offering a mobile app, prepaid plan, but its for independent, higher-quality coffee. New Yorkers will pay $45 a month for brewed, drip, pour- over, or filtered coffee (or tea). Latte drinkers will pay more: The unlimited espresso subscription costs $85 a month. Rotem says the prices are equivalent to about 22 cups, or roughly one java beverage per workday per month. On average, Americans consume 1.7 cups of coffee a day, according to Studylogic, which means a CUPS subscription may not be a bad deal. 11. 18 AVRIL 2014 - Vigie Piranha 11 Scanbot Scans and Uploads Multipage PDFs Directly to the Cloud - Lifehacker Android: In the future, paper (much like running) will only exist for recreation, for fun.
