  • Clicking with the consumer | Teic.ie
    it s coming to a head now though While some consumer focused 12 megapixel cameras have already begun to rear their heads including some on Canon s own IXUS range the importance of pixels does seem to be shrinking as consumers now see little real improvement in going from one high number to another So what is going to be the next big selling point There are three important things when it comes to cameras firstly the lens then the image processor which decodes what the lens sends it and finally the pixel count said Kid A That always comes third out of three in importance However much of the advancements on the horizon are far more marketable than lens quality even if they are arguably less practical One of the more intriguing examples is the WiFi ready camera which uses medium range signals to communicate with various devices This may allow the user to transfer their pictures to their computer without having to tether the two with a USB cable or even have them sent directly for print to a WiFi enabled photo printer The final application for a WiFi camera is the one that will have compulsive social networkers salivating however Assuming the user is in a wireless hotspot at the time the right software will allow the person to upload their pictures online immediately be it to a private folder or their public Flickr account Nikon s Coolpix S52c has such functionality and even allows users to e mail photos directly from the camera Another antenna that is also finding itself into some very niche digital cameras is for GPS added to allow geo tagging to take place The concept of geo tagging is straight forward a user tags a picture with a geographical location and uploads it to a photo sharing site which in turn allows people to view albums of photos taken from a particular area With enough photographs the user can theoretically see a specific location from any angle and could even piece these disconnected pictures together to create a far broader view than each individual photograph allows for Multinational GE has already released a camera the E1050 with GPS built in and many high end smartphones also house the same feature along with some relatively respectable quality cameras For companies like Canon this gradual improvement of camera phones would logically be a threat to them however the reaction is quite the opposite Camera phones have been great for us they ve gotten people taking pictures again said Mr Brady Before people would only take their camera out of their drawers for special occasions but now people take pictures of everything What s great about that is that they take a picture with their phone and quickly decide they would get even better results if they got a dedicated compact camera instead A lot of Canon s business also comes from those customers who upgrade to the more professional cameras having grown an appetite

  • HTC TyTN II Review | Teic.ie
    but is justified by the fact that it hides a slide out QWERTY keyboard extremely useful for sending e mail visiting a website or editing an office document and all are easily done with this handset Of course such a small keyboard and screen is no replacement for your laptop where practical but as a means of keeping in touch with work while on a short journey above and beyond tracking e mail the TyTN II is ideal It seems a shame so that such a variety of input methods are wasted by the very uninspiring Windows Mobile 6 operating system which handles almost like a downsized version of Microsoft s decrepit Windows 95 system HTC does its best with what it is given and even affixes a very user friendly front end on to make controlling the phone as easy as it should be but once you delve beneath this polished surface as you will need to do eventually things turn sour The TyTN II is an imperfect device in many ways from its physical shape to what makes it run It does what you would expect from a business focused smartphone but you cannot help but feel it could have done so much more perhaps with just a centimetre taken off the depth of the phone and a more usable piece of software running under its hood If this kind of polish can be added to the TyTN III assuming there will be such a device HTC may have an unstoppable force on their hands An edited version of this review appeared in an issue of Business Finance in September 2008 Related Posts Review Apple TV 1 Comment Oct 18 2010 Samsung Solid Extreme review 1 Comment Oct 4 2009 Canon Powershot A2100 IS review No Comments Oct

  • Feature: Cyberpsychology | Teic.ie
    done in IADT already suggests that conscientiousness is a negative predictor of usage the less conscientious users are the ones more likely to use it which is very strange he says One of the biggest predictors of Facebook usage is narcissism I m quietly confident that that is going to have a big correlation Dr McMahon goes on to point out however that narcissism can be seen as a positive as much as a negative as it could also be used to describe someone with a certain amount of self belief and drive While not an obvious match Facebook already benefits from trusted psychological principles For example the changes it made to its News Feed some time ago were unpopular at first but have since proved a hit because of the addictive hit it provides which Dr McMahon characterises as variable reinforcement In the case of Facebook this is where users get a reinforcing reward such as an interesting message in their news feed but at a variable rate In order to get the reward they must keep returning until they happen upon one once more However Dr McMahon also believes psychology could be the undoing of Facebook especially as its membership expands more and more As he sees it human brain s ability to interact properly with a limited amount of people means that a list of friends beyond a certain number becomes pointless As the noise level increases people begin to share and communicate less and what they say gets noticed less by others and so the rewards of being on the site decrease Mix this in with a growing unease over privacy and you may have a potent combination for a mass exodus from the site Facebook doesn t recognise that people s lives are compartmentalised and what I want to share with one group of friends I may not want to share with another says Dr McMahon If a site can come along that can offer that in a very user friendly way as well as strong privacy options I think it could do very well Dr McMahon reckons that understanding the motivation of the average Facebook user will help him to predict when this is going to happen although he says he is beginning to believe that Facebook is here to stay even if it does become less popular in time He also points out that it could be a lucrative thing to know what the early adopters those who tend to use services or devices before they become mass market want as it will make it easier to see where they are going next So is there a challenger to Facebook s crown Well MySpace is still trying hard to regain its lead but the site was never a strong player in Europe and has a lot of ground to make up even in the USA A new start up called Diaspora is creating some buzz however as it promises to have privacy at
