Top 10 reasons why the HP TouchPad is better than the iPad

Make no mistake: the iPad is a great device for what it is. But here at Top10, we are trained by ninja monks to look past Steve Jobs’ reality distortion field and recognise a better product when we see it. The HP TouchPad, which runs on the same webOS platform as the ill-fated Palm Pre, looks the part and may finally give what is doubtless a fantastic OS its due. Here are ten reasons why.

1. Faster, smarter

hp touchpad snapdragon processor 520x300x24 fill Top 10 reasons why the HP TouchPad is better than the iPad

The TouchPad is the first device to use Qualcomm’s latest, snappiest Snapdragon processor yet – the APQ8060. This comes paired with an Adreno 220 GPU and 1GB of RAM – four times that of the iPad – to deliver the most powerful multitasking tablet yet, with unmatched 3D graphics processing for gaming and buttery smooth video playback in HD. The iPad can’t touch this.

2. UI to die for

webOS has a user interface that makes Honeycomb look like a bad metaphor for Windows 95 and makes iOS feel a been-there-done-that. Not only does it ooze elegance, it scales beautifully on the TouchPad’s massive screen. Take the virtual keyboard, for example, which is resizable in small, medium and large to cater for even those who grew up near a nuclear plant. The iPad, meanwhile, only comes in extra large iPod Touch.

3. Front-facing camera

Unlike some devices, the TouchPad doesn’t cut corners with obvious features just so HP can fleece you for your roubles with another slightly updated version of its tablet a year later. No, that’s Apple’s job. A front-facing camera with video calling, is it so much to ask? HP, says no.

4. No multimedia apartheid

hp touchpad kindle and flash 520x300x24 fill Top 10 reasons why the HP TouchPad is better than the iPad

Apple may treat Flash like a redheaded stepchild, but the rest of the world knows better. Flash is ubiquitous and the dominant multimedia platform on the web. While we certainly have high hopes for the wondrous HTML5, we can’t fathom why you’d keep Flash out in the meantime. HP TouchPad supports Flash AND HTML5. Who says the two can’t co-exist?

5. It talks to your phone

Not only does the TouchPad automatically sync data with the Pre 3 (that would be HP’s upcoming, all-improved threequel to the Palm Pre), meaning you’re never too far from all your important data, it even receives calls and messages right on the device.

Why get up from your comfy sofa when you can answer your call and receive messages on the TouchPad? Did we mention it takes video calls too?

6. Just Type

Just Type takes the concept of universal search and gives you something better. Want to see if there’s any new mail from your chum? Just Type. Want to tweet how great your day has been? No need to launch the Twitter app. Just Type. I’m sure you can see where this is going.

If this were a feature in the iPad, it would be hailed the second coming. With webOS, innovation is not a feature, it’s just there for you to enjoy.

7. Sharing is caring

hp touchpad touch to share 520x300x24 fill Top 10 reasons why the HP TouchPad is better than the iPad

Speaking of innovation, and we do not use the word lightly, the TouchPad also features what HP calls ‘Touch-to-share’.

Suppose you’re browsing a website on your TouchPad and need to go out but can’t take the tablet with you. No worries. Simply touch your Pre 3 on the TouchPad and it will automatically load up the page on the handset. And you can do the same with documents, pictures, anything the Pre 3 can handle. Touch the iPhone 4 anywhere and it might as well cough and die.

8. Look mom, no wires!

Like the Pre, the TouchPad has its own wireless charging dock, the TouchStone. And by ‘wireless’ we mean no connecting bits to the tablet itself. Just place it on the dock and it will start charging, even when it’s inside its case. And while it charges, it will go into Exhibition Mode, which can display anything to your liking, be it a slideshow of your family photos, agenda of the day or your social network updates.

9. Wireless Printing

hp touchpad wireless printing 520x300x24 fill Top 10 reasons why the HP TouchPad is better than the iPad

You don’t become the world’s largest technology company without selling a few printers along the way. And HP has sold millions, no wait, tens of millions – all of which will be compatible out of the box with the TouchPad.

10. ‘True multitasking’

hp touchpad multitasking 520x300x24 fill Top 10 reasons why the HP TouchPad is better than the iPad

This is not just some marketing jargon HP keeps throwing around. It’s actually true. There really is no mobile OS out there that does multitasking better than webOS. No one even comes close.

The ever-mesmerising ‘cards’ metaphor in webOS gives you an actual view of the apps you’re running, not just a set of icons of apps in limbo. Open an app related to one you were looking at before and it will automatically get ‘stacked’ with that app. If you need to, you can always relocate it to another stack or give it its own space. Switching between apps is simply a matter of flicking through the cards or stacks of cards and tapping the one you want to open. And once you’re done, just flick it upwards to throw it off the screen. That simple.

HP’s product manager Sachin Kansal sums it up best: “in webOS, multitasking was not an afterthought”. We couldn’t agree more.

Top 5 Best iPhone & iPad Apps for Exporting and Importing Your Photos

With so many wireless iOS networking apps for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch available, there’s very little reason to connect any of these devices to iTunes, except to update the software. Besides, importing and exporting photos using iTunes has never been one of the best features of Apple‘s mobile device process. Let me introduce you to 5 useful apps for importing and exporting photos to and from your iOS device(s).

1. DropBox

634408901472223022 Top 5 Best iPhone & iPad Apps for Exporting and Importing Your Photos

First off, if you’re an iOS device user, you should definitely have a file sharing DropBox account and app. Dropbox is one of the best ways to sync files between computers and mobile devices, because all your files can be accessed, over Wi-Fi and 3g, via your online account. The latest version of DropBox now allows bulk upload of photos and videos to your account. With the Dropbox installed on your Mac, it’s really easy to drop image content into a folder and then download it onto your iOS device, and vise versa. Another benefit of having Dropbox is that you can connect to your account from within many of the leading wireless file sharing apps, such as they ones I’m describing in this article.

2. PhotoSync

634408901750197109 Top 5 Best iPhone & iPad Apps for Exporting and Importing Your Photos

What I like best about PhotoSync is that it allows you to selectively choose photos and movie files that you want to sync between your iPhone and iPad, and any computers on your Wi-Fi network, or with a BlueTooth connection. You can even directly import photos from your iOS into your iPhoto and Aperture libraries. PhotoSync also includes a free Mac client for exporting images from your computer to your iOS device(s). And like many photo syncing devices, you can use PhotoSync to transfer files to your Dropbox and Flickr account.

3. RemoteSnap

634408902156923668 Top 5 Best iPhone & iPad Apps for Exporting and Importing Your Photos

RemoteSnap almost instantly transfers your images directly to your Mac or PC over Wi-Fi—as you snap them on your iPhone, or select existing images from your iPhone Camera or Photo Library. To use RemoteSnap, you will need to download app to your iOS device, and then install the free “RemoteSnap Server” client on your Mac or PC. The setup is very easy. With RemoteSnap’s instant transfer feature, you could set up a Hazel automation to automatically open and display images as they are sent via RemoteSnap, which means others can view your images as you take them.

4. PicBox

634408902366927700 Top 5 Best iPhone & iPad Apps for Exporting and Importing Your Photos

If you would rather not waste time selecting photos in your iPhone Camera Roll to upload to Dropbox, download a free copy of Picbox, which automatically copies entire Camera Roll of photos and/or videos to your Dropbox account with one single tap. On top of that, Picbox keeps track of which images it has already uploaded to your account. It does not erase your original images on your Camera Roll, it simply copies them to your account.

5. CameraSync

634408902590212505 Top 5 Best iPhone & iPad Apps for Exporting and Importing Your Photos

As you may have noticed, each of the apps I have described do basically the same thing, but in a slightly different way. But for a completely hassle-free uploading of pictures and video from your Camera Roll to your Dropbox, iDisk, FTP server, Amazon S3 bucket, Flickr or Box.net account—CameraSync will automatically begin the upload process right after you open the app. CameraSync can do all the uploading in the background, which means you can switch away from the app and do other things on your iPhone. CameraSync will also keep track of which images and videos it has already uploaded.

Yes, CameraSync and PicBox are nearly the same, the only difference is how fast you want the upload process to begin.

Well, the above are my picks for the top photo syncing apps. Let me know which ones you prefer.

Top 5 Great Laptop Bargains to Consider

Lenovo, AcerAsus, Dell and HP all have good bargains right now on laptops equipped with older CPUs. But should you wait for laptops powered by new Ivy Bridge chips to hit the shelves? We break it down.

good laptop bargains Top 5 Great Laptop Bargains to Consider

Laptop manufacturers are hard at work updating their laptop lines and making new models using Intel’s latest Ivy Bridge processors. If you’re in the market for a new laptop, however, it may make more sense for you to buy a slightly older laptop running second-generation Sandy Bridge and save a few hundred bucks. Here’s how to decide which purchase is your best option.

 

Ivy Bridge: Better Battery Life and Graphics Performance

 

 Top 5 Great Laptop Bargains to ConsiderSave $362 now on a Dell XPS 15z with a Sandy Bridge processor.As with every new chip release, Ivy Bridge promises improved performance and greater power efficiency compared to last-generation Sandy Bridge chips. The general performance boost for the new processor, though, isn’t really that much. In PCWorld benchmarks, the new processor ran only about 5 to 10 percent faster. You might not really notice a difference, especially if you’re running chores that don’t task the processor much–for example, if you’re browsing the Web or editing a document.

 

So what’s Ivy Bridge good for? If you do a lot of tasks that are processor-intensive, you’ll save some time. These tasks include media transcoding and playing video games.

 

Ivy Bridge: Graphics Booster

 

The biggest Ivy Bridge benefits, in fact, are on the graphics side. The new integrated GPU (graphics processing unit) in Ivy Bridge is so improved that you might not need a discrete video card in your laptop for running 3D graphics or playing most games. Intel benchmarks using 3DMark* Vantage show graphics performance gains ranging from 18 percent to 105 percent.

 

If you’re not a gamer or media wrangler, you might prefer a new Ivy Bridge laptop for the 20 percent increase in battery life. Intel has stated that these power savings can add as much as an hour to your Dell inspiron 1545 battery life, so Ivy Bridge laptops may be ideal for road warriors and others who want their laptops to last all day on one charge.

 

Finally, buying an Ivy Bridge laptop has another advantage that has nothing to do with the processor itself. Updated laptop models and new laptops often come with other upgrades besides the CPU: The latest graphics cards, more hard-drive options, thinner and lighter designs, and so on.

 

Buy an Older Laptop to Save Money and for Instant Gratification

 

hp pavilion dm1 4050us 11357355 Top 5 Great Laptop Bargains to ConsiderSave $170 now on an HP Pavilion DM1-4050us with a Sandy Bridge processor.Perhaps you don’t need the latest and greatest laptop model. If you don’t play games on your laptop or work with media files–and if an extra hour of HP probook 4710s battery life won’t make much difference to you–you can save hundreds of dollars buying an “older” laptop as retailers try to clear their inventory to make way for the new models. Some Sandy Bridge laptops are just a few months or weeks older than the latest Ivy Bridge ones and may be perfectly suitable for your needs.

 

For example, you can get a 15.6-inch Asus laptop (model A53SD-TS71) with a quad-core Intel Core i7 Sandy Bridge processor, 4GB of memory, a 750GB hard-drive, and an Nvidia GeForce GT610M graphics card for just $750 at aussiebattery. The laptop dropped to its new lowest price in April, right before Intel launched Ivy Bridge.

 

By comparison, the 15.6-inch Asus G55V with an Ivy Bridge Core i7 processor, 12GB of memory, a 750GB hard drive, and an Nvidia GTX 660M graphics card costs more than twice as much–$1449–at J&R (with a $50 discount).

 

(Choosing an older Sandy Bridge processor instead of Ivy Bridge when you’re configuring a laptop won’t get you as much savings, but if your priority is to save as much money as possible, selecting an older processor can help. When configuring an Alienware M14x, for example, choosing a second-generation Intel Core i5-2450M instead of the third-generation Intel Core i7-3610QM will save you $100.)

 

The Asus G55V is a gaming laptop, but only high-end laptops got Ivy Bridge updates in the first wave. This is another reason you might want to buy an older laptop now: You want one right away.

 

According to the Ivy Bridge launch schedule, budget Ivy Bridge laptops–those running Core i3 processors–won’t arrive until the end of the year, while Ivy Bridge mainstream laptops and Ultrabooks are expected to start popping up in June.

 

lenovo 4960855 sa 11357371 Top 5 Great Laptop Bargains to ConsiderSave $119 on a Lenovo 1068B9U laptop with a Sandy Bridge processor.Here’s one more reason that may sway you to opt for a cheaper older model, besides price and availability: Sandy Bridge is cooler for overclockers. That is, Ivy Bridge runs hot when overclocked, so if you want to push your laptop’s CPU to its performance limits and need a laptop right now, a Sandy Bridge system is your better bet.

HP Touchpad – Looks Like An Oversized iPhone 3GS

HP‘s first tablet running Palm’s WebOS software is launching tomorrow, hoping to give Apple‘s iPad a run for its money.

It’s the same price as the iPad ($499.99 for the 16GB version, and $599.99 for the 32GB version), but for now, TouchPads only have Wi-Fi built in.

We got our hands on the TouchPad for the first time today, and we’ve taken some huge pictures of it, many of which include an iPad as a point of comparison.

Say hello to the HP TouchPad hitting store shelves tomorrow.

It runs WebOS 3.0, the newest version of Palm’s mobile operating system software.

it runs webos 30 the newest version of palms mobile operating system software HP Touchpad   Looks Like An Oversized iPhone 3GS

Keep your eyes peeled for our full review next week, but here are some initial impressions thus far:

  • When we turned on the device, it took us about 10 minutes to get it to connect to our Wi-Fi network. Once we did, it took another 5 minutes for our WebOS registration to go through.
  • The screen looks great, but the TouchPad isn’t ultra responsive. Even with only a couple apps open, there was noticeable lag.

  • WebOS 3.0 is wonderful. Messaging, notifications, and Synergy (bringing in Google and Facebook integration) are all a huge breath of fresh air.
  • The TouchPad hardware feels a year old. It’s the same size as the original iPad, and it doesn’t feel as fast as the original iPad.
  • Typing is tough because auto-correct is poor, double tapping the space bar to insert a period doesn’t work, and apostrophes aren’t added to words like “don’t.”
  • YouTube (Flash content) videos play inline as if you were watching them on your computer
  • We really want to like the TouchPad, but it’s less than impressive thus far. Check out the full review next week.

Top 10 mobile phones to look forward to now

The world of mobile tends to go into a prolonged summer snooze after the endless announcements of Mobile World Congress and the rush to best those phones quickly in the following months. But that’s not to say there aren’t stacks of amazing new blowers set for release later this year. Here’s our Top 10 to look forward to now.

1 iPhone 4S/5

Apple’s new blower looks a dead cert for September, when the Cupertino company usually shows off its new iPod range. With the next-gen phone missing from WWDC, rumours are still rife about what we can expect. A four-inch screen? NFC tech? An eight megapixel camera? All are plausible.

As for the name, expect it to be dubbed the iPhone 4S as Apple looks to 2012 for a major revamp.

2 HTC Sensation

htc sensation 520x300x24 fill Top 10 mobile phones to look forward to now

The Sensation has just hit shelves, after garnering some serious hype since launching a couple of months back. With a stunning 4.3-inch screen, lightning fast 1.2GHz processor and 1080p video skills, it looks as if it’s going to be the phone to beat in 2011.

The only issue is whether HTC can get future versions of Android to work on it.

3 HP Pre 3

The third iteration of the stunning, but low-selling Pre is almost here, pegged for release at the start of July. HP revealed the device back in February, with a similar design to its predecessors, but with improved internals. There’s a super-fast 1.4Ghz processor, five megapixel camera and the excellent webOS under the hood.

4 HP Veer

hp veer 520x300x24 fill Top 10 mobile phones to look forward to now

The smaller HP Veer is also about to debut on these shores after its initial US rollout last month. This tiny smartphone uses the same webOS as the Pre 3, but comes with a slightly slower version of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon processor, 8GB of storage and measures just 54.5x84x15.1mm.

5 Google Nexus 3

Still only a rumour, but one which is likely to materialise in the last quarter of the year. Being Google’s own handset, it’ll come with Android Ice Cream Sandwich, a screen that’ll be capable of HD Ready video playback and even 1080p video recording. There’s no word on who will be making the device for Google though, although LG has been mooted.

6 Motorola Milestone 3

Apparently not coming to the UK, but the Milestone 3 has been officially revealed. It has a huge four-inch screen and a five-line QWERTY, so tapping out numbers is far easier than on older versions. There’s a dual-core processor and it comes with Android 2.3 Gingerbread inside.

7 Motorola Pro

The UK version of the US’s Droid Pro is coming out next month. It has a full QWERTY keyboard aimed at business types, a five megapixel camera and 8GB of storage. However, it only comes with Android 2.2, meaning you’ll miss out on the very latest Google smartphone features.

8 BlackBerry Bold 9900

Hitting Three in August, the Bold 9900 is BlackBerry’s latest attempt to claw back some of the ground it has lost in the professional space. With its trusty keyboard, 1.2GHZ processor and super-slim 10.5mm frame, it promises to be one for email fanatics everywhere.

9 Nokia Windows Phone W8

One of two Nokia Windows Phones expected later this year. Word is that it will mimic the Nokia N8 in terms of the hardware, with an aluminium finish and 12 megapixel camera. Windows Phone Mango will be on board this device, which will be do-or-die for Nokia.

10 Nokia Windows Phone W7

Mobile watcher Eldar Murtazin says this will be the first Nokia Windows Phone to be released. It takes its cues from the beautifully designed Nokia X7, with an 8 megapixel camera and Qualcomm chip.

Top 5 More Handy Web Apps to Save You Time at Work

Web apps are a friend to all who mash the keyboard from nine to five. They live in the cloud, are accessible from any Internet connection and are great for chopping those mundane work tasks off at the knees.

We’ve previously highlighted a batch of Web apps that reduce the headaches and keystrokes associated with common tech chores, and after receiving some great feedback from readers, we thought it only right to hunt down a few more worthy bookmarkables.

See below for five more picks, and remember to leave your own time-saving Web ditties in the comments.

1. PrintFriendly

print friendly 640 Top 5 More Handy Web Apps to Save You Time at Work

While we all strive to live in a paperless world, sometimes you’ve just got to ruthlessly murder some innocent trees. Does that make you a bad person? Probably.

The next time you need to print something from the Web, stop over at PrintFriendly first. It’s a ridiculously simple way to distill nearly any Web content down to a clean, ad-free document suitable for paper. And the best part? You can also generate beautiful PDFs that retain links and other formatting.

Goodbye, extra pages that are mostly empty space except for one banner ad and a URL at the bottom!

2. Vector Magic

Imagine this crazy scenario: The boss needs you to print up event flyers, but all she has is a tiny 100 pixel logo from the corporate website. (I warned you this was going to get crazy.)

Resizing this graphic with standard imaging software will render it pixelated and unprofessional. What you need is a vector asset—a mathematical representation of the logo that a graphic designer would use to scale the image at any size without sacrificing quality.

Vector Magic is a remarkable little app that translates standard Web images (JPG, GIF, PNG, etc.) into scalable vector art. We gave it a shot with batteries-company.com’s logo, and the results were impressive and crisp. Mileage may vary depending on the complexity of the image, but even small, multicolored icons made great vectors in our testing. Photographs might get dicey, but it’s worth a shot.

Vector Magic packs a bit too much power to be totally free, but you get the first two vectors on the house, and a basic account is only $7.95 per month for unlimited use—well worth it, especially if you’re making a lot of PowerPoint presentations or laptop battery shop.

3. Dummy Image

Speaking of images, are you ever building a presentation or website and find yourself in need of a visual placeholder? You you’ve got a killer stock handshake photo coming, but right now you’re just getting your layout down, and the measurements need to be precise.

You could fire up ol’ MS Paint, slice out a 600 by 300 pixel box, color it red, save it to your computer, open PowerPoint, import the image, what did I name the image?, I swear I just saved the image, is it in My Pictures?, I can’t find the image, seriously where is this thing, restart MS Paint, ad infinitum.

Or, you could snag Dummy Image from your bookmarks bar, type in your dimensions and drag the graphic onto your slide.

I think we’re done here.

4. SimplyNoise

simplynoise 640 Top 5 More Handy Web Apps to Save You Time at Work

Let’s face it: Your coworkers are annoying and their incessant chatter makes it hard to focus on anything but cat pictures. Sure, Keith from accounting is a nice guy, but enough about Idol already, you’re a grown man for God’s sake.

We kindly recommend SimplyNoise, a white noise generator you can fire up with one click, should the office get rowdy during crunch time. In actuality, the app can generate three different kinds of static noise: white, pink, and brown. If you’re looking for warmer, less grating frequencies (like those found in a waterfall or an ocean), go with brown. The app even remembers your volume preferences.

Headphones sold separately.

5. ShowMeWhatsWrong.com

If you’ve ever provided tech support over the phone to a coworker (or a friend or family member, for that matter), you’ve probably already killed yourself, so no need to read any further.

If you are alive, and foresee this being an issue in the future, you’ve got to check out ShowMeWhatsWrong.com. It’s a dead-simple way to share screencasts with a tech-troubled colleague.

There’s no account to create, but you’ll need to provide your e-mail address so the app can share confirmations with you. Send a link to your coworker where he can record up to five minutes of his on-screen troubles. When he hits “stop,” the app uploads and processes the video, and shoots a private URL back to you. View the screencast almost instantly, diagnose the problem (likely that the printer was not, in fact, plugged in), and be heralded as office hero. The videos are lightweight, smooth and expire after a week.

Considering how frustrating it can be to reliably capture on-screen video for other purposes, the ease of this Web-based solution is pretty refreshing HZ9SD6KZHETV.

If you aren’t fist pumping at your desk right now over these life-changing websites, there’s probably little hope for you. Did we miss one that you can’t get through the day without? Share and share alike in the comments below.

Can Mango really power Windows Phone to the top?

Windows Phone’s 7.1 Mango update has dominated headlines this week. And rightly so. The updates make the already excellent mobile OS even more appealing, with brilliant advances in terms of Bing search, improved live information delivered to the homescreen and full-on Twitter support.

And that’s before we even get to the belated announcement of Windows Phone Marketplace’s arrival online, offering punters the chance to buy and sync apps on the web as well as on their phones.

mango official batteries company.com  Can Mango really power Windows Phone to the top?

But while on paper, and in the flesh, these updates are undoubtedly impressive, Microsoft still has some big work to do to get itself to the top. New partners, in the form of Acer, ZTE and Fujitsu will help globally, if not in he vital US and European markets. But there has to be a question about why this update isn’t being released until autumn.

There is some logic behind the move. Microsoft wants to ensure devs have the chance to bring the new features to existing and future apps, hence they’ve released the SDK now. And trailing operating systems is nothing new: Google did it with Ice Cream Sandwich at I/O earlier this month and Apple will do the same with iOS 5 in the next fortnight.

However, the fear is that Microsoft will take three months to get it ready for devices, only for manufacturers and networks to take their own sweet time testing it and getting it out into the wild. This has already happened with the Big M’s previous Windows Phone update, causing much embarrassment and awkward headlines for the Redmond batteries company.

On top of this, Microsoft will be releasing its Windows Phone update around the same time that Apple updates current iPhones with iOS 5 and rolls out the sequel to its best-selling blower. Just a few weeks later, Ice Cream Sandwich will land on Nexus phones, with new Android hardware doubtless not far behind.

This is tough on Microsoft. Rush the release and risk getting it wrong. Hold it back and they’ll have to go mano-o-mano with the biggest players in the smartphone space. Of course, its Nokia Windows Phones will cause some buzz and generate sales. But will they be anywhere approaching the volume it needs to start pushing up analysts’ smartphone charts?

It’s highly unlikely, especially as Google and Apple look to redouble their efforts in the run up to Christmas. Mango looks the part, just as the first version of Windows Phone 7 did. But there has to be the fear that this will remain, for the time being at least, a niche concern for discerning mobile users.
