Amazon making Firefly available on all Fire HD tablets

Posted by wicked February - 26 - 2015 - Thursday Comments Off

Amazon_Fire_Phone_Main_TA

Last year one of the most buzzworthy stories of the tech world was the release of the Amazon Fire smartphone, the giant retailer’s first foray into the mobile phone market. The device, despite all the attention it received, never seemed to generate sufficient sales interest as revealed by the $83 million in inventory Amazon was holding at the end of the third quarter. In what may be a sign of cannibalization of the Fire smartphone, Amazon is making the Firefly software that came on the device available for all Fire HD tablets.

Firefly is Amazon’s answer to an app like Google Goggles, the plethora of QR code scanners, and music identification programs like Shazam. Firefly combines all of these so users could use their device to scan objects, books, movies, posters, QR codes and other items to get more information about them. Amazon included 245,000 movie and television episode titles in the library, 160 live TV channels, and 35 million songs. Users of the app did note that it had an unsurprising tendency to direct users to Amazon for potential purchases whenever they scanned an item if it was available from the retailer.

The Firefly app update is being pushed out as an OTA update to all Fire HD tablets, although the Fire HDX 8.9 tablet already had access to it.

The other big piece of software that Amazon included on the Fire smartphone was called Dynamic Perspective and created the 3D effects on the phone. Amazon may eventually decide to push that out as well as a way to make their line of tablets more attractive to buyers in the tablet market.

Nexus 6 now on Amazon, Moto E soon with Verizon (maybe)

Posted by wicked February - 24 - 2015 - Tuesday Comments Off

Motorola has been on a smartphone roll of late, being the OEM of choice for Google’s Nexus 6, and receiving good reviews for their newer handsets, including the mid-range Moto E. The main problem has been availability though, as they usually run out of stock and people have to search far and wide (well, on their computers at least) if they want to get a unit, specifically for the Nexus 6. But now Motorola is widening their reach, with both confirmed and rumored news.

If you’ve been frustrated by the fact that the Google Play Store is always running out of stocks of the Nexus 6, now you can avail of the device on Amazon. Hopefully, they will have enough stocks to satisfy those wanting to have the 6-inch Quad HD smartphone as their new best friend. However, there are no discounts if you choose to buy it from the online retail giant, and it will have the same price as when you avail of it elsewhere (if you can find it).

Meanwhile, there are unconfirmed reports that the mid-range Moto E will soon be available through Verizon. An image of the device with the carrier’s logo was leaked by a guy named “Terd Ferguson”, so we don’t know how reliable that is. If the picture (and user) is also to be believed, this version will have LTE, as compared to the original
handset which only has 3G.

What has been confirmed is that the 2nd gen Moto E is now available through Best Buy for $99.99. Meanwhile, the other confirmed news is that the Nexus 6 is available in Amazon for $649.99. This is the unlocked 32GB edition of the smartphone, which comes in Midnight Blue or Cloud White.

oppo find 7 review aa (8 of 20)

Amazon is currently selling the Oppo Find 7, a rather good QHD display smartphone, for only £310 in the UK until the end of the day, complete with free delivery.

The Find 7 originally went on sale in Europe back on December 17th. The 16GB variant initially cost £319, while 32GB of storage brought the price up to £379. The current offer works out to a £69 or 18 percent saving.

For your £310, the Oppo Find 7 comes with a 5.5 inch QHD display (2560 x 1440 resolution), a 2.5GHz Snapdragon 801 processor, 3GB RAM, 13 megapixel rear camera, 5MP front camera, 4G LTE connectivity, a microSD card slot, 3000 mAh battery, and Oppo’s customised Android based ColorOS.

The 32GB LG G3, probably the Oppo Find 7’s closest competitor in terms of specifications, typically costs around the £350 in the UK, making the Find 7 a rather good deal right now.

Amazon’s offer applies to both black and white colour options and can be combined with one day delivery if you want your Find 7 fast.

Samsung overtakes Apple, jumps to number 3 in Reputation Quotient in Harris Poll

Posted by wicked February - 17 - 2015 - Tuesday Comments Off

harris_poll_rq_top_ten

The Harris Poll has released the results of their annual poll of corporate reputation and Samsung has moved all the way up to number 3 in the rankings, surpassing Apple along the way for the first time. Samsung moved from seventh in the prior year while Apple fell from third down to ninth. Some other notable tech companies also made the top ten including Amazon at number two and Google slid in to the tenth place.

Amazon continues to be one of the strongest performers year after year on the strength of their breadth of products, customer focus and public trust, although they did get supplanted at the top by Wegmans Food Markets. Meanwhile, both Microsoft and Sony slipped out of the top ten even as Google managed to slide in to grab the final top ten spot.

On the longer list, Sprint Corporation found itself as one of the biggest gainers from 2014 to 2015, gaining 5.3 points to land in the 72nd spot on the list of the top 100. Competitor Verizon found itself in the 66th spot and the leader amongst telecom companies.

The poll asks respondents to rate companies on 20 different attributes that are grouped into six dimensions of corporate reputation:

  • Social responsibility
  • Emotional appeal
  • Products and services
  • Workplace environment
  • Financial performance
  • Vision and leadership

The Reputation Quotient, or RQ, is the sum of the ratings on the 20 attributes divided by the total number of attributes answered multiplied by seven. That result is then multiplied by 100 to give a final RQ score with the maximum being 100. Wegmens Food Markets top score was 84.36.
