Google acquires Word Lens app recently featured in Apple’s iPhone ad “Powerful”







Google just bought the company behind a smartphone app called Word Lens that visually translates text in real life scenarios right on your device using the camera and some behind-the-scenes intelligence.

With Word Lens, we’ve seen the beginnings of what’s possible when we harness the power of mobile devices to “see the world in your language.”

By joining Google, we can incorporate Quest Visual’s technology into Google Translate’s broad language coverage and translation capabilities in the future.

As a thank you to everybody who supported us on our journey, we’ve made both the app and the language packs free to download for a limited time while we transition to Google.

We’re looking forward to continuing our work at Google – stay tuned!

The kicker? Word Lens was recently featured rather prominently in Apple’s latest iPhone ad “Powerful” and even listed on Apple’s microsite promoting the film as an app to explore.

Google, of course, offers a lot of apps on the iOS platform (36 alone if you just look at iPhone) so there’s no reason to suspect Google will remove the app from the App Store as Apple would likely do if it were to purchase the software (based on previous buys like Siri).
And it’s really a good fit for Google’s portfolio as far as acquisitions go. Word Lens even boasts support for Google Glass for translating words on the fly using visuals and its feature set somewhat resembles that of Google’s own Google Goggles app which can translate text by snapping a photo. As per their own announcement, Quest Visual, the company behind Word Lens, will work as a part of the Google Translate team.



As for acquisition details, no price has been disclosed for the purchase but Word Lens appears to reside on the more casual side of recent mergers and acquisitions unlike Google’s $3.2 billion deal for Nest (which is still being sold by Apple). Google has confirmed the acquisition to multiple outlets.



Word Lens first debuted in 2010 and is available on the App Store as a free download with packs to unlock for additional translations. Previously, these packs were sold as in-app purchases.

Wireless Companies Agree to Add ‘Kill Switches’ to Smartphones to Prevent Theft




A trade group for wireless providers said Tuesday that the nation’s biggest mobile device manufacturers and carriers will soon put anti-theft tools on the gadgets to try to deter rampant smartphone theft.

CTIA-The Wireless Association announced that under a “Smartphone Anti-Theft Voluntary Commitment,” the companies including Apple, Samsung, Verizon Wireless, AT&T, U.S. Cellular, Sprint, and T-Mobile have agreed to provide a free preloaded or downloadable anti-theft tool on smartphones sold in the U.S. after July 2015.

Owners’ options will include remotely removing a smartphone’s data and preventing reactivation if a phone is stolen or lost, the association said.

It appears the wireless industry has somewhat reversed course as law enforcement and elected officials in the U.S. demand that manufacturers implement a “kill switch” to combat surging smartphone theft across the country. Industry officials have previously said putting a permanent kill switch on phones has serious risks, including the potential that hackers could activate it.

“We appreciate the commitment made by these companies to protect wireless users in the event their smartphones are lost or stolen,” CTIA CEO Steve Largent said in a written statement. “This flexibility provides consumers with access to the best features and apps that fit their unique needs while protecting their smartphones and the valuable information they contain. At the same time, it’s important different technologies are available so that a ‘trap door’ isn’t created that could be exploited by hackers and criminals.”

The wireless industry’s announcement comes nearly two weeks after Samsung announced that it had added two anti-theft features, “Find My Mobile” and “Reactivation Lock,” to its recently released Galaxy S5 smartphone.

Apple created a similar “Activation Lock” feature for the popular iPhone last year and has offered a free tool called “Find My iPhone.”

Almost one in three robberies in the U.S. involve phone theft, according to the Federal Communications Commission. Lost and stolen mobile devices — mostly smartphones — cost consumers more than $30 billion in 2012, the agency said in a study.

Earlier this month, California legislators introduced a bill that, if passed, would require mobile devices sold in or shipped to the state to be equipped with the anti-theft devices starting next year — a move that could be the first of its kind in the United States. Similar legislation is being considered in New York, Illinois, and Minnesota, and bills have been introduced in both houses of Congress.

San Francisco District Attorney George Gascón and New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, who have given the manufacturers a June deadline to find solutions to curb smartphone theft, said in a joint statement Tuesday that while CTIA’s plan is “a welcomed step,” it still falls short of effectively ending smartphone theft because the measures will rely on consumers to seek out and turn on the technology.

Gascón added, “This approach is a losing strategy, and that’s why this commitment falls short of what American wireless consumers need to effectively end the epidemic of smartphone theft.”

But Jeff Kagan, a longtime tech analyst in Atlanta, said Tuesday that the wireless industry’s commitment may be the closest to solving the smartphone theft problem. He believes the industry’s commitment occurred because it saw that government is in the process of making sweeping changes.

“I’m sure there will be a lot of back and forth, but this is the next natural step,” Kagan said. “I don’t think the wireless industry would’ve done this if there wasn’t pressure from lawmakers and the public to come up with some solutions. Sometimes it takes a nudge.”

Filippo Bigarella Posts Update Regarding Springtomize 3




Filippo Bigarella, the developer of Springtomize, has posted an update regarding Springtomize 3, the version that will support iOS 7 and 64-Bit devices.

For those that do not know, Springtomize is the ultimate tweak to customize your device, allowing you to modify just about anything.

Springtomize is the only tweak you'll ever need to customize your device, in all of its aspects: from its capabilities to the look of your SpringBoard. You can disable elements you don't use or that may slow down your device performances, you can customize the look of your icons, the dock, the folders and the Status Bar, or even your Lockscreen. Springtomize also allows you to save your SpringBoard layout and to restore it later, without wasting time moving icons inside folders or to their original positions! You can also customize various animations of your SpringBoard or add nice mods to current ones, like choosing the color of the screenshot flash or to dim your device screen like an old tv when locking! Finally, in the Theming section you can choose to apply a custom dock or battery; you can also make your icons transparent and set the brightness of your wallpaper!

In the blog post regarding Springtomize 3, Filippo Bigarella notes that the app is going to be completely re-written and is 50% complete.

As most of you know, I had already been working on Springtomize 3 before the release of evasi0n7: unfortunately, while I managed to get a lot of work done, I can’t really say I got much farther than 35-40%.

This is mainly because of the fact that it’s not an update, at all; it’s a complete rewrite, based on a completely new structure designed to solve many of the technical challenges that a big project like Springtomize brings to the game (and if you’ve ever developed an iOS tweak, you may be able to guess some of them).

From that 35-40%, I think I can safely say that, as of now, it’s at least half percent done: the “foundation” on which everything is based is nearly complete, many “hooks” have been written (which means that it already has a lot of features). What’s missing right now is expanding even more the number of available features and… Settings.

Yep, settings are a big missing point when it comes to Springtomize, and require a lot of work and testing: oh, not even counting that they need to be designed to be as user friendly as possible, because I don’t want people to get lost.

Beta testers have been chosen and I’ve just let them know they’re part of the team; I feel like they’re all very competent people with the skills required to help me make Springtomize better.

I can’t really wait to show you Springtomize 3’s full potential, but please, bear with me while I try to do my best to build a product that people will enjoy. You will not be disappointed.


For those on iOS 5 and iOS 6, Springtomize is available in the Cydia Store for $1.99.

Sony to Launch Vaio Branded Windows Phone in 2014?




Sony is reportedly considering the launch of a Windows Phone in 2014, according to The Information.

Sony, whose mobile unit has exclusively made smartphones powered by Google’s Android software for nearly four years, has considered launching a Windows phone as soon as mid-2014, according to a person who was involved in the talks and a person briefed about the device.

The two companies have reportedly held numerous discussions with Sony even drawing up designs for a prototype device. If released the phone is said to be branded under Sony's Vaio line.

Talks over the device have continued despite Microsoft's acquisition of Nokia's devices; however, nothing has been finalized yet. The deal could fall through if the two disagree over licensing fees, preloaded software, and other topics.

Microsoft's Windows Phone platform is finally starting to get see some growth; however, getting other manufacturers on board is important. Apparently, Microsoft has also had discussions with ZTE to produce low-end Windows Phone devices in the U.S., China, and Europe.
