dipjar 640x640It does look as though the world is making a slow but sure move to a cashless society. After all, carrying a bundle of cash around is never safe regardless of where you are, not to mention that you will also have less peace of mind and one more thing to worry about. A debit card would work a whole lot better, while credit cards too, will be able to help you out in a tight spot during an emergency. How about the tipping jar? Where does cashless come in then? The answer to that question lies in the DipJar.

engoWe all live in an era where mobile devices are the norm, and some of us even tote around at least a couple of gadgets whenever we leave the home. Can’t live without them and all that jazz, of course. Well, there will be times when our device starts to run low on juice due to over-extended use on a particular day, which is why the idea of an ENGO charging station can be rather appealing.

iphone 6 plus ram 360x640

Apple doesn’t like to talk about the amount of RAM its mobile devices have during their announcement and it stuck to that tradition on September 9th when announcing the new iPhone 6 models. Both are powered by the new A8 chip with a M8 co-processor but Apple didn’t say if it increased RAM from 1GB. Purported iPhone 6 part leaks show that it may only have 1GB of RAM but a new report today suggests that things might not be so different for the iPhone 6 Plus as well.

There aren’t many differences between the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 and 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus apart from the obvious display size. Both have the same processor and same camera but the latter does have optical image stabilization as opposed to the former’s digital image stabilization.

Some believed that perhaps the larger model will have a greater amount of RAM. While it does have a larger battery as opposed to its 4.7-inch sibling it doesn’t look like the iPhone 6 Plus has more than 1GB of RAM.

An alleged screenshot from an iPhone 6 Plus running an iPhone monitoring app called System Status has appeared online and it shows the device’s RAM hitting its ceiling around 1GB. The authenticity of this screenshot has not been verified but then again there’s no official word from Apple on the RAM capacity that we can go on.

It is easy to criticize Apple for sticking with 1GB RAM on its flagship smartphones even when rivals have pushed up to 3GB, but we know that Apple doesn’t work that way. It evens everything out with battery life and performance, and strives to achieve the desired results through perfect cohesion between hardware and software. Apple probably won’t increase RAM size just to have more on paper while having it compromise on battery life.

That’s not to say that more RAM in a smartphone is a bad thing, but its just not the way Apple works.

sprint desire510At the end of last month, we saw the official announcement of the HTC Desire 510, and were alerted to the fact that this particular smartphone will eventually make its way over to the folks at Sprint. It looks like there was not too long to wait since it has been revealed that the likes of Sprint, Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile in the U.S. are set to launch the HTC Desire 510.

office lens update

Microsoft describes the Office Lens app for Windows Phone akin to having a scanner in your pocket. Users simply need to take a photo through the application to digitalize notes on blackboards or whiteboards. It also makes it easier to easily store important documents and business cards in digital format. Today the Office Lens app has been updated with a new functionality that will allow users to create Office documents out of the pictures that they snap.

Office Lens is already quite capable of converting notes written on a blackboard or a whiteboard to a digital format. Starting today the app will be able to convert those pictures of whiteboard and blackboards directly into Word documents and PowerPoint presentations.

That’s not all. Users will be able to edit, author and then re-edit those documents and presentations as many times as they like, regardless of the fact that they got their start on a physical blackboard or whiteboard.

Taking a picture of a hardcopy document also converts it into a Word file which is automatically saved to OneDrive so that its available across all of the users’ devices.

Keep in mind that the resulting digital file won’t simply be an image import inside a Word or PowerPoint file. Office Lens will create proper Office documents with the relevant extensions so that they can be accessed and edited through any device on which Office is available.

Office Lens for Windows Phone is available as a free download from the Windows Phone Store.
