Aliyun - the brand new mobile OS by Alibaba with Ali-Cloud

aliyun mobile os china

          Alibaba to be the google of china and even launching their own mobile payment services AliPay, we have to admit that seeing them launch their own mobile operating system really did not come as big a shock as we expected. Aliyun will be launched on china's K-Touch cloud smart phone W700 by the end of this month.

          Aliyun focused on the web and cloud services. it focus on the web elements like e-mail and search but should also support web-based applications and will back up call,photo,and text data in the cloud.  Moreover, users can seamlessly synchronize, store, and backup data such as contact information, call logs, text messages, notes, and photos to AliCloud's remote data center. The stored data can then be accessed across all supported PC and mobile devices. Interestingly, online storage service promises to provide 100 GB of data storage absolutely free! .The Aliyun OS will apparently be "fully compatible" with apps from Android through a proprietary Waterloo-style emulation layer.

          Linux runs underneath the platform and allegedly lets the device runs Android apps, although this hasn't been checked and might not apply to some apps. Most of the W700's features aren't known, though it has 3G, a back camera, and GPS.

           Also Alibaba expects a tablet based on Aliyun Os by the end of this year and will also have an English version for other countries near the same time.

           Although with Mozilla planning their own mobile operating system too, it looks like the smartphone operating system wars just got a lot bigger which can only be a good thing as consumers will have more variety to choose from.

Google Plus (Google+) Looks Like Everything Else

google plus profile

         Google Plus is a new initiative from Google, which aims to simplify your social sharing experience and connect with people who matter to you in real life.Google plus takes a different approach towards social sharing and has better privacy control on the features provided. 
don’t we already have Facebook, Twitter? then what is the difference ? 

          Are you fed up with people who mass tag you in photos and videos which really gets in the way of your social privacy?  You don’t want to remove those friends from your social life, it’s just that you want to prevent them from doing nonsense stuff over and over again.In Google Plus, your friends or followers will have to take prior permission from you, if they want you to tag in a photo or video. There is no Wall so the question of spam links and malicious apps being posted on your profile is burned to death. If you tag someone in a post, and share it only with him, none else can see it. Not even mutual friends !

here's an easy way to understand Google+:

  • ·         Circles = Facebook. Share content with your friends, only you don't have to share everything with                         everybody at once. You can pick and choose specific groups.
    ·         Sparks = Google Reader. Subscribe to news and information sources and get a constantly updated   feed.
    ·         Hangouts = Tinychat. Live video conversations with multiple friends at once.
    ·         Instant Uploads = Microsoft Kin (and iCloud, and...). Snap photos with your phone and they're automatically uploaded to an online storage spot on Google Plus.
    ·         Huddle = GroupMe. Group chat.
    ·         Stream = it contain updates from all the people whom you are following. This includes photos, status updates, videos and comments from people whom you have added to your Google + circles.

    Everything in Google + works through Circles.
    A Circle is an identifier for the network you create and it is visible to you only. You can create as many circles you want and add friends to one or more circles that you have created. Noone except you would be able to see the name and visibility of your Google Plus circles.
    The best thing regarding Google Plus is that Google will automatically scan your email contact list and Android contacts and suggest you people whom you want to follow. You may add these people to your circles one by one.
    If you want to follow a celebrity or a famous person on Google Plus, simply search for his name on the search box and add him to a circle you have created. Again, this circle is visible only to you so you can safely name it anything you want.

    Android users can install the official Google plus application from market.

    At the moment, google testing with a small number of people. so you can't join without an invitation. 
    but i can invite some of you. so if you want invitation contact me
