Show Note #012 Cyber Monday – Thứ Hai Điện Tử

Cyber Monday (Thứ Hai điện tử) là ngày thứ Hai đầu tiên sau ngày Black Friday (Thứ Sáu đen), ngày khởi động cho mùa mua sắm trên mạng tại Hoa Kỳ giữa dịp Lễ Tạ ơn và Giáng sinh. Nếu như dịp Black Friday được gắn liền với hình thức mua sắm truyền thống (khách hàng đến các cửa hiệu để mua bán) thì Cyber Monday tượng trưng cho hình thức mua sắm mới, mua sắm trên mạng, khi các giao dịch được thực hiện chủ yếu thông qua Internet.

AT&T and LG Mobile Phones Announce the First 1 GHz Smartphone in the United States, the LG eXpo

AT&T and LG Electronics,  today announced the LG eXpo, a Windows Phone will be available online beginning December 7.  Featuring the first 1 GHz processor in the United States, the LG eXpo allows business professionals to meet their demanding data sharing needs while on the go.

image Available exclusively for AT&T customers, the handset will be compatible with AT&T’s High Speed Packet Access (HSPA) 7.2 Mbps technology, which provides a considerable speed boost to the nation’s fastest 3G network.

The LG eXpo is the first device in North America to support an optional integrated pico projector.  The LG Mobile Projector snaps onto the back of the device and allows users to share presentations, slideshows and even online videos straight from their mobile phone.  Weighing only 1.8 ounces and small enough to fit into the palm of your hand, the LG mobile projector provides users with powerful new technology in a compact design, featuring a projection distance as far as eight feet.

 "LG eXpo adds to our growing portfolio of smartphones that operate on the latest upgrade to our 3G network and offer customers a great choice," said Michael Woodward, vice president, Mobile Phone Portfolio, AT&T Mobility and Consumer Markets.  "As we move to HSPA 7.2 technology, it is crucial to provide our customers innovative and future-proof smartphones."

With the upgrade to HSPA 7.2 technology, AT&T continues its investments to deliver the nation’s fastest 3G network.  AT&T plans to deploy HSPA 7.2 initially in Charlotte, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles and Miami by the end of the year. The company plans to deploy HSPA 7.2 in 25 of the nation’s 30 largest markets by the end of 2010, and to reach about 90 percent of its existing 3G network footprint with HSPA 7.2 by the end of 2011.

LG eXpo also eliminates the need for pin codes and passwords with the exclusive "Smart Sensor" fingerprint recognition from AuthenTec, which delivers a new level of added smart and personal security unlike any other mobile phone in the market.  AT&T is the first to offer U.S. subscribers a smartphone that leverages the features and functions of a smart sensor.  The Smart Sensor complements the touchscreen user interface of the eXpo by also providing precise cursor control for text editing, 4-way menu navigation, and AuthenTec’s unique turbo-scroll feature for rapid browsing of long emails, contact lists or websites.

The LG eXpo is loaded with Windows Mobile® 6.5 Professional to help power users stay more connected with email, calendar and Microsoft® Office Mobile.  The phone’s projection feature allows users to display Web pages, documents, photos and videos on the go.

Boasting a 3.2-inch external touchscreen with 16M color, LG eXpo features a sophisticated slider design with a full size QWERTY keypad.  For the dynamic multi-tasker, LG eXpo provides users with powerful functionality that supports an RSS Viewer, Podcast and aGPS. In addition to a crystal clear 5.0 megapixel camera with built-in auto flash, LG eXpo can support up to a 16GB removable microSD memory card for premium music and photo storage.

Beginning December 7, LG eXpo will be available to enterprise customers and for purchase online at www.att.com/lgexpo for $199.99 after mail-in rebate.  Pay $299.99 and after mail-in rebate receive a $100 AT&T Promotion Card.  Two year agreement on a minimum $69.99 plan required. The LG Mobile Projector will be available in the coming weeks for $179.99.

Show Note #011 Black Friday – Thứ Sáu Đen

image Ngày được người Mỹ gọi là Thứ Sáu Đen, là ngày sau Lễ Tạ Ơn, và cũng đánh dấu ngày khởi đầu của mùa mua sắm vào dịp Lễ Giáng Sinh tại Hoa Kỳ. Mời các bạn theo dõi mẫu phóng sự ngắn của TechTiVi.

Ý nghĩa của chữ đen trong ngày Thứ Sáu Đen có liên hệ tới sổ sách kế toán, khi làm ăn lỗ lã thì trong sổ sách kế toán các con số được viết bằng mực đỏ, đưa đến cụm từ tiếng Anh “in the red”, tức là các số liệu được ghi bằng mực đỏ. Ngược lại, làm ăn sinh lợi, thì gọi là “in the black”, các con số ghi bằng mực đen.”

If you are 18 or older and a proud owner of an Xbox 360, Microsoft just opened up social networking feature with Facebook, Zune Video, Twitter and Last.FM  integration.

  • image The Facebook integration lets you update your status to share details about what movie you’re watching or game you’re playing. It also acts as a Facebook application, letting you see your friends’ status updates, the News Feed, and new photos your friends have posted. And best of all, you can now see which of your Facebook friends are on Xbox LIVE so you can friend them there, too.
  • With Twitter, you can post and reply to tweets, view profiles, watch trends, and do Twitter searches. Both Facebook and Twitter will appear in the new “My Community” channel on your Xbox dashboard.
  • Last.fm, which will be under the Music channel, lets you love, ban, or skip tracks. There’s also a “gamer stations” section which offer game-related music for the U.S. and U.K. gamer communities.

In addition, Microsoft also integrated Zune HD to access to video (rented / purchased) from Xbox.

To get the update, just turn on your console and log into Xbox LIVE with your Gold membership. If you only have a Silver membership, you can demo the new features for free from November 20th until the 23rd.

Note: The update is only available to members over the age of 18 for now. Here’s why.

Google Enhances Search for Movie Goers

There are so many benefits carrying a smartphone when it comes to find a restaurant or movie to see. Of course they all have an app for that. But the most ubiquitous search engine Google, today launched a new Web-based mobile version that should greatly simplify the planning of a trip  to the movies.

Just go to google.com in the web browser on your iPhone, Palm WebOS, or Android-powered device, (no Windows Mobile nor Blackberry mentioned, but it should work fine) search for "movies", and then tap on the "More movies" link.

After a quick approval request from you to use your location, you can either browse a list of movies or select the "Theaters" button to browse a list of theaters near you.

From Google Blog: The new movie listings page now includes buttons to play trailers right on your phone, ratings and categories, movie posters, upcoming showtimes, and a concise list of the nearest theaters and their distances from you. We keep information on this page succinct so you can quickly browse through shows and showtimes to help you decide which movie to see. If you want more details about a specific movie, just touch the poster or movie title and you’ll see our new movie details page that has a synopsis of the movie, a more detailed list of showtimes, the cast and crew, and pictures.

[youtube width=”500″ height=”318″]NKYX5Hf4T00[/youtube]

When you browse by theater, you’ll see a map of the theaters nearest to you. Then, just tap on the link to any particular theater to see what shows are playing there and what times they’re playing. Of course, you can also search for specific movies or theaters and see their listings right away. Try searching for recent movies like "New Moon" or "Where the Wild Things Are" or search for "glendale 18 los angeles".
