Google’s Chromecast could throw your mobile and browser games onto your TV

Google was announced The Chromecast, a small WiFi-enabled HDMI dongle that may well prove big news for bringing mobile and browser games to your living room.

The Chromecast plugs into your television’s HDMI slot, and allows you to send content from Android and iOS devices to the TV screen via Wi-Fi, while also supporting Chromebooks, and the Chrome web browser for Mac and Windows.

As such, there’s no word as-of-yet regarding whether games will be fully supported, or whether input lag will cause issues for this particular line of fire.

Sony Launches Laptop Weighing 770 Gram

Computer manufacturers are competing to make the laptop with the smallest possible size and weight as possible. Sony did not want to miss the issuing Vaio laptop that they claim to be the lightest in the world.

Vaio laptop in question is a size 11-inch Vaio Pro which was launched to the market of Indonesia in Jakarta, Friday (05/07/2013), Sony Indonesian President Satoru Arai. In addition, Sony also launched a Pro-sized 13-inch Vaio, Sony Vaio laptop hybrid Duo 13-inch Vaio E Fit as part of their flagship line up for the summer of 2013.

With a weight of 770 grams, meaning Vaio Pro 11 is only slightly heavier than the iPad tablet. But it does not have the Vaio lightest touch screen capabilities. For Vaio Pro 11 which has a touch-screen capability, weighs a little heavier, which is 870 grams. Both are much lighter when compared with, for example, the Acer Aspire S7 11-inch or 11-inch MacBook Air which weighs about 1 kilogram.

With light weight, the Sony still reluctant to sacrifice the ability of computing the two variants Vaio Pro 11’s. The fourth generation of Intel processors (which are named Haswell) claimed more energy efficient so as to save battery more than 50% when compared to the previous generation of Intel processors.

Though tiny, do not underestimate the power of this Vaio Pro 11. Material uni-direction carbon fiber wrapped her body is material that’s 50% lighter 25% stronger than aluminum. In addition, convenience Vaio Pro 11 to work in a long time is also optimal with standard-size keyboard design and a comfortable palm rest.

As a gadget aimed at mobile users, Vaio Duo 13 count battery life up to 15 hours after a single in-charge. In addition, the weight of the Vaio Duo 13 is only 1320 grams also make it light enough to carry anywhere.

Vaio Duo 13 comes with Triluminous display, high-resolution screen that was adopted from the Sony Bravia TV screen. In addition, to maximize his ability as a tablet, Vaio Duo 13 also comes with a stylus pen for writing, sketching, drawing even.

Other security features Vaio Duo 13 is the 8 MP camera that can take very sharp photos. Not only that, this camera can also function as a scanner, so that when a user photograph a document, the picture can be converted to PDF with ease.

Indonesian Sony Vaio series mentions that Pro 11 and 13 and the Vaio Duo 13 will be available in Indonesia on August 30 at a price of around Rp10-17 million for Vaio Pro 11 and 13 and Rp15-24 million for the Vaio Duo 13.

Sony’s latest laptop introduced for this summer is the Vaio Fit E. This 14-inch laptop and is intended for home users who want to enjoy the visual and audio capabilities ala Sony with a relatively affordable price.

Not vary much with Vaio Pro 11, Pro 13 Vaio also comes with a very light weight. Although a 2-inch screen is bigger, but the weight of the Vaio Pro 1060 only 13 grams, making it practically lighter than the 13 inch ultrabook output of other producers.

Facebook’s Balancing Act: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

The good news: Facebook (NASDAQ: FB  ) turned fabulously profitable in the just-reported second quarter thanks to a redesigned ad flow on mobile Facebook apps. Revenues jumped 23% from the first quarter to the second. Last year, the same comparison yielded just an 11% seasonal gain. The year-ago quarter’s net loss turned into a tidy profit.

In response, share prices jumped more than 30% overnight and sit very close to all-time highs that were set during the stock’s IPO.

The bad news: The ad assault is interfering with the user experience. A fresh survey (free registration required) from the American Customer Satisfaction Index shows Facebook dead last among online media sites in terms of user satisfaction. “Facebook users find the numerous changes to the site’s interface taxing,” says the ACSI. Twenty-seven percent of users surveyed complained that ads are ruining their Facebook experience these days.

The ugly news: The good news may not last very long. Facebook had better dial back the ad blitz if it wants those disgruntled users to stick around.

It’s a high-wire balancing act between monetization and user satisfaction. Lean too far in one direction, and you won’t make any money from those billions of page views. Err too far in the other direction, and those profitable page views will melt away as unhappy users find greener pastures.

Don’t think it couldn’t happen. Facebook is not too big to fail. Unless the company strikes that crucial balance before it’s too late, we could very well see another mass exodus from one leading social network to another.

Facebook itself killed MySpace by launching a better service in the same genre. Before that, MySpace trampled all over social pioneer Friendster in much the same way.

And there are Facebook alternatives waiting to crush the current king at the first opportunity, believe it or not.

Chief among these is Google (NASDAQ: GOOG  ) and its Google+ service, which benefits from tight integration with the world’s most popular search engine as well as with leading video site YouTube.

Twitter sings a somewhat different tune but can fill many of the functions of a Facebook account. LinkedIn (NYSE: LNKD  ) is basically Facebook for corporate users and could very well expand into the consumer side of things if it wanted to.

All of these alternatives offer fewer ads and a cleaner experience than Facebook. LinkedIn ties with Facebook at the least satisfied end of the ACSI survey; everyone else runs miles ahead. Yes, even the much-maligned Google+ “ghost town.” And even LinkedIn reports fewer ad-taint complaints than Facebook.

That’s why I’d take this week’s Facebook share-price pop as a temporary boost, and not as a sustainable clean bill of health. The service currently leans far too heavy on the monetization side of the fence and runs a very real risk of finding out that the next era of social networking doesn’t include much Facebooking.

So my bearish CAPScall on Facebook stays in place until Mark Zuckerberg and company adjust their strategy again. If you can’t keep your users happy, the money will very quickly cease to matter.
