WorldWide Telescope, created with Microsoft’s high-performance Visual Experience Engine, enables seamless panning and zooming across the night sky blending terabytes of images, data and stories from multiple sources over the Internet into a media-rich, immersive experience. The WorldWide Telescope experience scales from a web browser all the way to multi-channel full dome in some of the world’s most advanced planetariums. About 10 months ago, China’s first planetarium driven by the WorldWide Telescope (WWT) was launched at the Shixinlu primary school which enabled students not only to see and study the stars and the universe in an immersive planetarium setting...Turn your browser to windows8newsinfo forum for the latest.

NO - IE for Android or IOS

They are not in the plans for Microsoft. The demand for both versions is rather high, and even though Redmond has developed for iOS and Android, Internet Explorer is not on the cards. The software titan wants to keep its flagship web browser exclusive to the Windows platform — that is, Windows and Windows Phone. Even the recently released (and discontinued) Nokia X2 Android powered handset came with an alternate browser. Anyway, the IE team disclosed this in an AMA session on Reddit, explaining that everyone is busy working to make Internet Explorer better on Windows. Obviously, porting Internet Explorer to iOS and Android (and doing a good job of it) could help Microsoft negate the negative perception that affects some of its software these days. But then again, the company believes that there is a lot of merit in keeping a few goodies exclusive to users of its platforms, Windows and Windows Phone....Find out what the company has to say on this on our forum.

Levitating Om/One Speaker

The speaker itself was originally posted with an $100,000 goal, but the concept has attracted over three times the required funding, bringing in a staggering $336,088 from just 1435 backers at the time of writing. The speaker system brings the sound by using electromagnets to make a ball shaped speaker levitate above its cradle using electromagnets, with creator Om Audio claiming that the rechargeable device should have a battery life of around 15 hours. Pairing two of the devices together is also enabled, meaning with a pair of these amazing speakers, you can generate true stereo sound with the Om/One’s high quality speaker. The product also includes a microphone, according to the designer, and can be used as a stylish speaker phone as well as a music player. Not only is it a fantastic oddity and amazing to look at, but the speaker offers impressive options for users, with three colors to choose from, black, white, and, the coolest of all, disco ball...For more and to see a video clip turn your attention to our forum.

Evidence of a new virus based on Zeus Gameover

Microsoft recently brought down the Zeus GameOver BotNet with the help of the FBI. Nonetheless this did not stop the virus from being copied and modified. For those who don't know, a Botnet is a collection of connected computers which are used maliciously to spread spam usually without the owner of the computer aware of what is happening. This new threat, know as newGOZ, has recently been spotted traveling across the world infecting computers. NewGOZ behaves differently than its predecessor Zeus GameOver in how it is delivered. This new variant uses domain generation algorithm (DGA) to find victims and send them malicious emails. These emails have also been improved to pass through auto-spam detection used by email providers. Between July 14th and July 25th, newGOZ's victims rose from around 127 to 8494. This is a concerning rise of computers infected by a new virus...Read more and learn how to protect yourself from this virus on our forum.

Linux Trojan

You may have heard about game titles being ported from one operating system to another, but how often do you read about a malware changing routes? That’s exactly what’s happening with a Linux Trojan that has found shelter inside the Windows operating system. Earlier this year, a set of malware designed for DDoS attacks were spotted on Linux operating system. One such malware that goes by the name "Trojan.DnsAmp.1" is now after your Windows running machines. What’s even more fascinating is the file name it poses as. "It is installed into the system under the guise of the Windows service Test My Test Server 1.0 whose executable file is saved in the system folder under the name vmware-vmx.exe", the security firm announces. The file first finds shelter on a Windows running machine, and then launches signals to let the attacker know its whereabouts. The malware then waits for the further commands -- upon hearing, it initiates the DDoS attack....Want more, I am sure you can find it at windows8newsinfo forum.

Internet Explorer 12

Well, more speed never killed anybody, so why not? Internet Explorer 12 is the upcoming version of Microsoft’s flagship web browser, currently on track for release with Windows 9. And now some more information about this brand new build of IE has been revealed. The Internet Explorer team got together in an AMA session on Reddit and promised to deliver a faster, more streamlined browsing experience with Internet Explorer 12 — at least, as compared to the existing builds of the web browser. A team member further confirmed that they are also looking at some accessibility changes for the next version of Internet Explorer. And although no specifics have been provided, the development team is also planning a substantial amount of bug fixes. Speed improvements are fine, but the big question is whether IE12 can become faster than two of its closest rivals, Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome?  Follow the development in Internet Explorer 12 at windows8newsinfo forum.

issues in Windows 8.1 August Update

Earlier this week, Microsoft released an upgrade to Windows 8.1 Update, dubbed as August Update. However, it seems that the installation files available through Microsoft’s website aren’t completely ironed out. After several complaints from users, the company has acknowledged issues in the August Update, and is now advising users to uninstall some of the modules from the computer. Additionally, Microsoft is currently investigating it and, for the time being, has pulled the download links. The company has acknowledged a few issues, such as inaccurate rendering of fonts, inability to recognize fonts residing in a location other than the default fonts directory, as well as a system crash that is leaving users with a 0x50 Stop error message. For system crash issues, the company has asked users to delete specific update files (the procedure is a bit long, and can be found at the via link below)...Learn what to uninstall and how to accomplish uninstalling at windows8newsinfo forum.

 

 
Transparent Phone and Tablet PDF Print E-mail

Transparent Phone and Tablet

While perusing the interwebs in search for the next “big thing”, I came across the following concept of a transparent phone and transparent tablet created by Tran Nhat. The UI shown here is basically a sketch, in black and white and only demonstrates how a transparent device like this would work. First of all, the phone… it’s a glassy and glossy thing with an edge-free facade and a top and bottom black area, probably holding the components. While the phone can afford this approach, the tablet uses side edges, a top and bottom, where it most likely stores all components. Both the phone and tablet adopt formats that feel like the iPhone and iPad respectively. Transparency gives birth to a lot of applications and features, but a good idea would be to turn it off when need be. It would be distracting to play a game with a transparent background, to be frank. The camera applications and augmented reality ones will look great on these devices, but what about the rest? Find this interesting see more images at windows8newsinfo forum.
