Yeah, that's the ticket. You made a killing by shorting it from $7.50 all the way "down" to $500.

Your choice of screen name is quite telling.

Wikipedia's description of Sylvester:

Sylvester shows a lot of pride in himself, and never gives up. Despite (or perhaps because of) his pride and persistence, Sylvester is, with rare exceptions, placed squarely on the "loser" side of the Looney Tunes winner/loser hierarchy.

Nokia video teases Pure View camera handsets for MWC (VIDEO-click link)
Nokia ramps-up MWC buzz
By Chris Smith
17 hours ago

Pure Definition, Pure Depth and Pure Detail coming to Nokia's MWC line-up

Nokia is planning to launch at least one new smartphone with an enhanced 'Pure View' camera, according to a teaser video posted by the Finns on Tuesday.

The brief 22-second video shows off a host of beautiful, snowy photos and promises all will be revealed at MWC next Monday.

The clip, named Pure View, switches between various shots showcasing what it calls Pure Depth, Pure Definition and Pure Detail.

Windows Phone or Symbian?The new camera tech is almost certain to be part of a new handset at MWC but it remains unclear whether the handset(s) will be running Windows Phone or Symbian?

It is thought that Nokia will launch multiple devices on both platforms in Barcelona, so it's possible that the Pure View camera tech may feature on both.

The company, which has restored its damaged reputation since the launch of its first Windows Phone devices last year, has produced some fabulous cameraphones down the years, so we're excited to learn the full details next week.

Google Docs For Android Updated, Brings Real-Time Collaboration, Rich Text Formatting, New Layout Tools, And An Improved UI
Posted by Cameron Summerson in Applications, News

The Google Docs for Android app just received an update that makes it even more like its desktop counterpart. It brings a number of new features to both phones and tablets:

Create, view and edit Google documents with our new Android editorRich text formatting (bold, italics, underline, font color, background color)Layout tools (bulleted lists, numbered lists, indentation)Real-time collaboration - see edits from others in secondsCursor presence and highlighting

Here's a look at the new interface:

Unfortunately, this new interface only applies to standard documents; spreadsheets still use the mobile web interface inside of the app. Hopefully El Goog is working on an update to improve that interface, as well. Oh, and while we're making feature requests, offline editing would be nice.

Still, this is definitely a pretty major step forward for Docs' mobile app, so hit the widget below to grab it.

Google Docs app updated with rich text options, collaborative editing (VIDEO)
by Alex Dobie on 2/22/2012 | Filed Under: Applications, News; Tags: android, apps, update, applications, docs, google docs | 1 comment

The Google Docs app for Android has received a substantial update today, adding some significant new features which to bring the phone and tablet app in line with the full desktop version.

First up is collaborative editing, which allows multiple people to work on the same document in real time -- this has long been possible on the desktop, but has been lacking in the mobile app. And it's also possible to set document permissions and invite others in your address book to work on a document alongside you.

In addition, rich text controls are included for documents, and pinch-to-zoom now fully functional too, making possible to manipulate text, undo and redo just like in the desktop version. Unfortunately these new features only work in documents, not spreadsheets, but regardless, it's a big step forward for the mobile version of Docs.

We've got Android Market links, and an official introductory video, after the jump.

Report: Wearable Android Google Goggles Will Debut in 2012 for Under $600
Jason Mick (Blog) - February 22, 2012 11:30 AM

Glasses will cost about as much as a smartphone, alert you when friends are nearby, look like Oakley Thumps

Since Seth Weintraub of 9 to 5 Google first leaked news of "Google Glasses" in December, a steady trickle of information on the top secret project has been filtering out.

I. Meet the Google Glasses

Not to be confused with the infamous "Google Goggles", which helps unscrupulous users avoid drunken emails, the new project looks to offer unique differentiation for Google Inc.'s ( GOOG) Android by taking wearable electronics and augmented reality to the next level. The New York Times is citing "several Google employees" as saying the glasses are not only the real deal, but are very near to market.

Nick Bilton writes in the "Bits" blog:

[T]he glasses will go on sale to the public by the end of the year. These people said they are expected “to cost around the price of current smartphones,” or $250 to $600.

The glasses would be packed with motion sensors for navigation (more on that in a minute) and GPS sensors. They would use a 3G or 4G connection. And they would come with a small glasses-mounted screen, which would site inches away from the eye.

The literal "retina display" equipped glasses are described to resemble Oakley's Thumps. They would be released as a stand-alone Android device, though it is possible that Google could bake in a connection to your traditional handset via local Wi-Fi or 3G routing, as well.

II. Are Wearable Electronics Ready for Primetime?

In a recent update Mr. Weintraub writes about the glasses' unique system input system:

The navigation system currently used is a head tilting to scroll and click. We are told it is very quick to learn and once the user is adept at navigation, it becomes second nature and almost indistinguishable to outside users.

The glasses will offer walking directions to users. They also come with a low-resolution camera, which will view the current perspective and overlay information on it, such as landmarks or alerts that one of your friends in the area.

Of course, this wildly excited connected futurist vision comes at a price, as you'll essentially be video-taping random strangers on the street. Google is reportedly well aware of these issues and is working out the privacy aspects of the new electronics devices.

The glasses are reportedly being built at Google's "Bat Cave" of sorts, the Google X Labs, located just off the main Google campus. The New York Times describes the staff involved, writing:

One of the key people involved with the glasses is Steve Lee, a Google engineer and creator of the Google mapping software, Latitude. As a result of Mr. Lee’s involvement, location information will be paramount in the first version released to the public, several people who have seen the glasses said. The other key leader on the glasses project is Sergey Brin, Google’s co-founder, who is currently spending most of his time in the Google X labs.

Google reportedly is thinking of the devices as a public "experiment", not an immediate profit opportunity. Thus, like many of its services -- Google Books, Google Maps, etc. -- it is using its unusual model of " design first, worry about monetization later". Thus far that model has served Google well and propelled it to billions in profit.

Potentially assisting in the project will be the company's new top-secret $120M USD "precision optical technology" testing facility, first revealed by the San Jose Mercury News. The facility will reportedly come with advanced radio frequency-proofed buildings, and will be a hotbed for testing advanced materials such as rare gases and optical coatings.

III. Universities, Competitors Preparing Unique Augmented Reality Visions

Outside of Google, researchers are working to bake display electronics onto contact lenses, raising the possibility of less-bulky future augment reality devices. The devices could eventually provide HUD readouts similar to those depicted in the dystopian science fiction Terminator franchise.

Apple, Inc. ( AAPL), Google's key mobile competitor, is reportedly going a different route. It's looking to build 3G-connected watch-like devices (wrist-worn). Apple is in the midst of its own construction push, looking to construct a gleaming new "spaceship"-like headquarters -- one of the final projects of late company co-founder and CEO Steven P. Jobs.Sources: The New York Times, 9-to-5 Google [1], [2], San Jose Mercury News

ASUS UK: Android 4.0 ICS Coming To Transformer TF101 In The Next Week
Posted by David Ruddock in ASUS, Eee Pad Transformer, Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0, News

After ASUS's Singapore Facebook stated an Android 4.0 OTA would be hitting the OG Transformer as late as March, it now seems that ASUS UK's Facebook page is indicating that said update will be landing in the next week:

A quick refresher on the TF101 ICS Update that you are all so patiently waiting for. Our engineers are working hard on getting this ready for you as soon as possible and are still aiming for a February release. As always as soon as we hear any further news or a definitive date we will let you know.

ASUS UK Facebook

While different regions do have differing release time frames for various reasons (eg, language support), you'd think ASUS would go about announcing this sort of information in a way that might be slightly, uh, organized. Still, good news for Transformer owners holding out for some Android 4.0 action, given that they've been waiting since CES.

We'll see if ASUS makes good on this promise in the coming week.
