iPhone-5-LED-Indicator

An unknown source Mr.T says that next iPhone is going to be a LED indicator next to camera which would apparently flash whenever any App causes notification alert built into iOS or whenever simply notifications pop up like most commonly receiving a text message.

Recently announced iOS has taken notifications to the next level which also suggests the coming of next iPhone equipped with such enhancements so as to bring iPhone at par with other devices. Like Blackberry’s phones, this feature if used in iPhones would certainly make it easier for users to make out if their phone demands their attention.

Are you bored with those old screensavers with bubbles and 3D text? iPhoneLS is a new and awesome screensaver which enables you to use iOS style screen locking system. Once you have this screensaver running on your screen you will see a slider with “slide to unlock” written on it. You have to slide it towards the right and you will be back on your desktop. iPhoneLS has a few system specification requirements, it needs a .NET 3.5 version in your system or even higher. This .NET framework has to be built in your Windows 7 operating system. If you are using any other prior version of Windows then you need to download .NET 4.0 from the Microsoft website. Once you have your system ready with .NET framework, installing iPhoneLS will be an easy job. You just need to follow the following simple steps to install iPhoneLS on your system:

Step #1 You need to download iPhoneLS from the internet. Make sure that you download from a safe link.

Step #2 Then you have to extract the .RAR file. For doing the same you need a tool like 7Zip. You will have three files: one executable file, a screen saver file, a text file. Make sure you save them in a directory which will not be deleted in future. If the file is deleted your screensaver will stop working.

Step #3 Then you need to make a right click on the screensaver file and click on install. From this point ensure that the file is not moved or removed.

Now you can Charge your iPhone while wearing this T-shirt

Orange, the telecommunications company has come up with a t-shirt with which one can use to charge their iPhone. They have named this new technology embedded t-shirt Orange Sound Charge. Currently only a working prototype has been made. It obviously doesn’t look too good but the technology is amazing. The principle behind this piece of clothing is that it converts sound energy into electrical energy and thus one can charge their iPhones. Orange aims to enable this t-shirt to charge a variety of mobile devices in the future.

In a post where Orange announced the t-shirt, they also explained the working of this t-shirt and the technology behind it. It is an eco charging device and it reverses the principle of a piezoelectric film. An A4 sized panel of the film is embedded inside the t-shirt. This then acts like a huge microphone which absorbs the sound and pressure energy waves. By the compression of quartz crystals which are interlaced converts the sound waves into electrical energy. This energy is sent to an internally built reservoir battery. From this battery, via interchangeable leads the mobile devices are charged.

There are two basic conditions which need to be satisfied for the working of this t-shirt. Firstly, it has to be worn. The second condition is that it needs to be located at a place where the ambient sound level is sufficient. The required sound level is about 80 decibels. This is almost the sound level at a busy street. Below this level of sound the t-shirt will not be able to absorb the sound energy and convert it into electrical energy to charge the mobile devices. The t-shirt is to be tested at Glastonbury Festival this year, there will be a number of live performances their and so the sound levels will definitely be around or above 80 db.
