Le NFC bientôt utilisé pour remplacer les clés de voiture ?

Posted by phil under IPhon on Vendredi oct 31, 2014

Avec l’IPHONE 6 Apple a fait le choix d’intégrer la technologie NFC à son smartphone. Si pour le moment, la puce est limitée à l’utilisation du système Apple Pay, sa présence dans un produit Apple amène certains à prédire un avenir prometteur à cette technologie. Apple a déjà des idées pour étendre son utilisation et du côté de chez NXP, fournisseur d’Apple et leader sur le marché des puces NFC, l’adoption de la technologie par le géant américain a donné des ailes : Forte de l’adoption du NFC par Apple, NXP est en train de présenter une solution qui devrait permettre d’ouvrir et de démarrer une voiture avec son smartphone. Vous l’avez compris, plus de clés, plus de carte électronique, c’est le smartphone qui dialogue avec la voiture. Le projet semble même bien avancé puisqu’il pourrait équiper des berlines haut de gamme dès l’année 2016. Pour Drue Freeman, en charge du projet, le NFC ne devrait pas révolutionner l’automobile mais pourrait grandement la simplifier. On imagine par exemple pouvoir apparier rapidement un smartphone à l’ordinateur de bord d’une voiture. Autre idée, une compagnie de location pourrait autoriser le smartphone pendant la durée du contrat et ainsi se passer de clés. Voilà quelques idées intéressantes que l’on ne demande qu’à voir à l’œuvre. Si elles s’appliquent ici à l’automobile, de nombreux autres secteurs seront également concernés. En attendant, on aimerait bien que les usages basiques du NFC soient ouverts sur IPHONE … A lire également : tous nos articles sur le NFC source Suivez l’actualité iPhon.fr Devenez fan sur Facebook Suivez nous sur Twitter Abonnez vous au fil RSS Vous aimez ?

BlackBerry’s instant messaging service BBM will be seeing an update across all OS platforms in the next few days. It has been available through BlackBerry Beta Zone for some users from a few weeks now and it now ready for everyone. The most notable new feature is Timed Messages which allows users to send a ‘secret’ message to a contact for a pre-set duration of time. You will also be able to retract any accidentally sent messages. We’ve all been there, so that may be a handy addition. New BBM features include: Timed Messages: Set how long contacts have access to messages and pictures shared in a chat* Message Retraction: ‘Retract’ a message to remove it from your BBM chat* A quicker sticker picker: Adding stickers to your BBM chats is now even quicker with a new picker HD Picture Transfer: It’s easier than ever to get a high quality version of the pictures you receive in BBM Discover Music: See what music your contacts are listening to in BBM Feeds. It may take up to 24 hours to propagate through the servers, depending on your region. One note to take from the Press Release is that it states the Timed Messages and Message Retraction features will be a premium paid feature in the future. It will be free for everyone over the next three months, after which \ »unrestricted access to these features will become part of a broader bundle of features that will be offered as part of a BBM subscription\ ». The update isn’t quite showing for me yet but do keep checking over the next 24 hours. Press Release BBM Introduces New Privacy and Control Features Offering Creative Ways to Chat and Share WATERLOO, ONTARIO–(Marketwired – Oct. 31, 2014) – BlackBerry Limited (NASDAQ:BBRY) (TSX:BB), a global leader in mobile communications, today announced that it has released several new features for BBM™, offering users new ways to chat and share with more privacy and control over their communications. At the core of the BBM experience is privacy and control. These two notions are more important today than ever before as people are looking for simple ways to help guard against their messages getting into the wrong hands or being seen by anyone other than the intended recipient. New features for BBM introduced today enable users to communicate with more discretion and freedom. Features introduced today include: Timed Messages(i): By setting a timer you can control how long messages and pictures you share with contacts can be viewed within BBM. The message is hidden until the recipient touches and holds on the chat. Then, once the timer has expired (or if the recipient takes their finger off the screen), the message is no longer visible. The user also receives a notification if BBM detects that the recipient has taken a screenshot of the image or message. Message Retraction(ii): Users can now retract their message to remove it from their BBM chat before it has been read by the recipient or after it has been read so that it is no longer visible within the BBM chat. High Quality Image Transfer: When a user receives a picture in BBM, they can quickly request an HD version to enjoy the image in full detail. Faster Sticker Selection: It is now easier for users to browse BBM Stickers and quickly add them to their chats. Discover New Music: See what music BBM contacts are listening to and show others what songs you’re playing. IPHONE users can tap the song and be taken to iTunes for a quick and seamless purchase. \ »These new enhancements to BBM were highly requested so we’re excited to be delivering them to users today,\ » said John Sims, President Global Enterprise Services at BlackBerry. \ »These capabilities will allow our users to be more creative in how they deliver their messages while also being confident that their content is kept private and seen only by its intended recipient.\ » Timed Messages and Message Retraction are premium features that will be available free and without restriction to BBM users over the next three months. After this time, unrestricted access to these features will become part of a broader bundle of features that will be offered as part of a BBM subscription. Today’s announcement underscores the commitment to making BBM a world class privacy-focused instant messaging application. New features are available for download over the next couple of days for BlackBerry 10 smartphones, IPHONEs and Android smartphones by installing the latest BBM update in BlackBerry World, Apple App Store and Google Play. For more information, visit the Inside BlackBerry Blog and check out new BBM videos on the BlackBerry Youtube Channel. About BBM Introduced in 2005, BBM set the standard for mobile messaging and continues to drive innovation in messaging and private social networking. Today, BBM is one of the largest private social mobile networks, driving real, active conversations. Customers love BBM for its privacy, controls and immediacy with Delivered and Read statuses and message-in-progress notices. About BlackBerry A global leader in mobile communications, BlackBerry® revolutionized the mobile industry when it was introduced in 1999. Today, BlackBerry aims to inspire the success of our millions of customers around the world by continuously pushing the boundaries of mobile experiences. Founded in 1984 and based in Waterloo, Ontario, BlackBerry operates offices in North America, Europe, Middle East and Africa, Asia Pacific and Latin America. The Company trades under the ticker symbols \ »BB\ » on the Toronto Stock Exchange and \ »BBRY\ » on the NASDAQ. For more information, visit www.BlackBerry.com. (i) While the timed message feature is designed to remove the message or picture from the recipient’s BBM chat view, it does not prevent recipients from capturing an image of the content by taking a screenshot or using an image capture device. (ii) Retracting a message after it has been read by the recipient will remove the message from the BBM chat view, but will not affect copies of the message that the recipient may have made prior to the message being retracted.

Jony Ive talks design challenges of the Apple Watch

Posted by phil under The IPhone Blog on Vendredi oct 31, 2014

Apple design head Jony Ive has given some insight into how Apple approached the design of the Apple Watch. Ive spoke about designing the Watch at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art this week. He said that the project was more challenging than the IPHONE, in part due to the societal views on watches, according to the Wall Street Journal: \ »Even though Apple Watch does so many things, there are cultural, historical implications and expectations,\ » Ive said. \ »That’s why it’s been such a difficult and humbling program.\ » Ive also emphasized that the wrist is a great place for quick interactions like looking at messages, but that the Apple Watch wouldn’t be suited for bigger tasks like reading a long document or email. What are your expectations of the Apple Watch when it launches early next year? Leave your thoughts with us in the comments. Source: The Wall Street Journal

How to connect to Instant Hotspot on your iPad

Posted by phil under IPAD, The IPhone Blog on Vendredi oct 31, 2014

Instant Hotspot is part of Continuity in iOS 8 and can be used to tether your wifi only IPAD. That basically means that as long as your IPHONE meets the requirements for Instant Hotspot and has an active cellular connection, you can share that connection with your IPAD. Here’s how! Before moving on, remember that the IPHONE or other device sharing a cellular connection must support Instant Hotspot and be running iOS 8.1. These are the supported models — IPHONE 5 or later IPAD 4 or later with cellular connection IPAD mini or later with cellular connection How to connect to your IPHONE‘s Instant Hotspot with your IPAD Launch the Settings app on your wifi only IPAD. Tap on Wi-Fi. Under Personal Hotspot, tap on the name of your IPHONE. That’s it! Your IPAD should now be connected to your IPHONE‘s hotspot. You don’t have to enable personal hotspot or perform any trickery any longer since both devices are tied to your iCloud account. You’ll actually see any devices that have a cellular connection and are compatible under the Personal Hotspot section automatically. When you select them, iOS will take care of the rest and enable what it needs to. When you disconnect, the Personal Hotspot feature will automatically be turned off again if that’s what you had it set to. Some people have experienced issues getting Instant Hotspot to show up or connect. If you do, be sure to check out our troubleshooting steps below! How to fix connection issues with Instant Hotspot in iOS 8.1 and OS X Yosemite

I’ve had a Sonos system since the beginning of the year and can’t imagine my life without it now. Put it this way, I love Sonos. And if I could think of a stronger word, I’d use it. However, one irritation of mine has always been that it doesn’t come with built-in AirPlay support. It also doesn’t support iTunes Radio, another minor annoyance to me. However, I did some thinking and poking around yesterday and found out that depending on your system setup, you can trick Sonos into streaming iTunes Radio throughout your entire home. Here’s how! Before continuing, you’ll need to have one of the following in place for this trick to work — An Apple TV that’s connected to your Sonos system – either directly or via your TV or entertainment system An AirPort Express that’s connected to your Sonos system via a line-in As long as you have at least one component of your Sonos system connected to one of the above, you should be able to get up and running by following these steps — How to trick Sonos into streaming iTunes Radio via AirPlay Launch iTunes on your Mac or PC. Click on the AirPlay icon at the top. Click on your Apple TV or AirPort Express that is connected directly to your Sonos system. Once iTunes connects, play whatever you’d like via iTunes Radio. Now launch the Sonos Controller app on your Mac, IPHONE, or IPAD and group your speakers together with the Sonos component you AirPlayed to in step 3. That’s it! You should now hear multi-room iTunes Radio streaming from your Sonos system. Is it a perfect workaround? No. But it does work. I’ve noticed a few connection issues here and there but nothing so terrible it would prevent me from using it when I want to listen to something on iTunes Radio. Theoretically, you can AirPlay from any IPHONE, IPAD, or Mac to any connected Apple TV or AirPort Express and stream virtually any audio. It’s not perfect but it works. So if you’ve got a Sonos system, give it a try and let me know what you think. And as always, if you found something that works better, let me know that too! Also, be sure to check out my colleague Serenity’s guide to hacking together your own speaker system using Sonos, Airfoil, and older iOS devices. How to hack together multi-room music with Sonos, AirFoil, and old IPHONEs

Test : Skater remet le skate à l’honneur sur iPhone

Posted by phil under IPhon on Vendredi oct 31, 2014

Les bons jeux de skateboard ne se comptent même pas sur les doigts d’une main dans l’App Store. Il y évidemment l’incontournable True Skate que nous avons testé à sa sortie, mais aussi également Touchgrind 2 et puis… c’est tout. Étant un grand amateur du genre, je ne peux résister à essayer chaque nouveauté et me suis précipité comme il se doit sur Skater, qui vient tout juste d’arriver sur l’App Store. Voici mes impressions : Skater est disponible ici sur l’App Store pour 4,49 € L’un des aspects les plus importantes de ce genre de jeu c’est probablement la manière dont on dirige le skater. Contrairement aux autres qui ont opté pour le fait d’avoir deux doigts (souvent l’index et le majeur) sur la planche comme s’il s’agissait des jambes du skateur, ici, le jeu se joue avec les pouces et il faut bien avouer que c’est terriblement pratique et surtout beaucoup plus simple à maitriser. Au début du jeu, une série de tutoriels nous explique comment avancer, comment se diriger et surtout comment réaliser les figures de base. Bientôt Ollie, Flip et autres Shuvit n’aurons plus aucun secret pour vous. Reste ensuite à entrer dans le vif du sujet. Évidemment, on peut commencer par se promener pour découvrir le premier skatepark. Au départ, il est le seul à être disponible, mais on peut réussir à en déverrouiller 4 autres. Pour espérer pouvoir rider dans différents paysages, c’est dans la partie ’Runs’ qu’il faut se rendre. Concrètement, ici notre mission est de reproduire à l’identique des séquences qui comportent une ou plusieurs figures. Pour nous y aider, des indications au sol nous montrent quand sauter et de petites boules en haut de l’écran comment réaliser les figures. Pour autant, il faut faire preuve de beaucoup de synchronisation pour arriver à ses fins et, croyez-moi, c’est loin d’être facile. Réussir ces Runs permet également de gagner des étoiles et de s’offrir de nouvelles planches, et de nouvelles chaussures. Si cela ne change rien au niveau du jeu c’est toujours agréable d’un point de vue purement esthétique. Skater propose également un autre mode de jeu qui permet d’affronter un ami. Le premier réalise son run et le second copie. A chaque fois, le perdant,celui dont le run a été copié parfaitement ou celui qui n’a pas réussi à copier , perd une lettre du mot Skate. Le premier qui n’a plus de lettre a perdu. Avec de beaux graphismes et un gameplay plutôt réussi, Skater vient se glisser dans mon top des jeux de skate sur iOS. Facile à prendre en main, il est ensuite assez difficile de reproduire les différents runs ce qui ajoute un peu de piquant. Certes ce n’est pas le plus réaliste de tous, mais il est particulièrement agréable. Si vous aimez le skateboard, alors n’hésitez pas, avec ce jeu vous allez vous régaler !
