In a statement, the vacancy is looking for a programmer who is able to integrate the Android system in the car. So later on a vehicle head unit is expected to replace the role of a smartphone while driving.

The driver can make calls, send messages, and do other things just by the sound. No need to be bothered to punch a series of buttons.

In January 2014 and Google has worked with Audi, Honda and General Motors to create an organization called the Open Automotive Alliance (OAA). Well, the ‘Projected Mode’ allegedly a follow-up of the association.

Exciting Play Games Use Google Glass

Google Glass is made not for any serious work. Because in reality, this smart glasses can be made to have fun, play one of them.

As performed by the developers of Google, they showed how Google Glass can be used to play games. Through a short video on YouTube, look how exciting mini-games to play.

Yes, although just a simple game, but how to play the game of Google Glass was not serious. Because, like Augmented Reality-based games there are to play a two-way interaction.

The official video uploaded by developers Google. One goal for the game developers also enliven the experience of using these smart glasses.

The game shown is not the first made, but dedicated to the Google Glass This is the first time.

Google expects in the future there will be other games made specifically for smart glasses. Because Google will not only serve as a tool for work, but also able to play the game.

Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.3 At Launch

Red Hat offers a hybrid platform that combines datacenter virtualization and management across the public and private cloud with Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.3

redhat

Designed to give a traditional data center virtualization technology which at the same time Red Hat continues to compile against OpenStack technology, Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization enables companies to deploy traditional and elastic workloads on their existing infrastructure without affecting the level of service, performance or scalability.

The latest version of Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization allows customers to use a set of services OpenStack (Compute, Storage and Network) that can be used by their datacenter virtualization platform via the Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization, as well as their private cloud via the Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform.

With a cohesive environment between Private Cloud and data center, various companies claimed now able to deploy traditional workloads and elastic without having to duplicate the infrastructure layer.

The latest release of Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization includes several features of infrastructure, network and storage to increase developer portability across heterogeneous cloud environments, including:

-. The new self-hosted machine, allowing the implementation of Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Manager as a virtual machine on the host, reducing hardware requirements;

-. Back-up and restore API integration now includes a new backup infrastructure that provides a broad set of APIs for third-party software vendors to perform backup and restore to their virtual machines.

-. Support for OpenStack OpenStack Glance and Neutron, which allows users to store their virtual machine templates and allows configuration of advanced network infrastructure that can be shared between the private cloud and datacenter virtualization.

Radhesh Balakrishnan, General Manager of Virtualization & OpenStack Red Hat said, improvements of Red Hat KVM hypervisor consistent to open and offers simultaneously virtualization management now enable more customers to take control of their data centers and build individual path to cloud infrastructure personal.

With the new addition to third-party plug-ins offered by Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.3, this offers the fundamental core for bargains OpenStack cloud supported Red Hat.

Potato Battery Could Be Resilient 3 Years

The sophistication of smart devices have not been matched by battery endurance. That is why, Creator gadgets were competing to make them durable battery device.

Well, the latest discovery from researchers at Virginia Tech University could be the solution. They achieved a breakthrough by using bio-energy from natural sugar substance, rather than chemicals such as Lithium batteries are common in gadgets.

Batteries with natural sugar energy sources claimed the researchers is ideal for use on mobile phones. In contrast to other energy such as bio Hydrogen and Methanol, sugar material arguably more secure because it is non-explosive or explosive and flammable.

“It is logical when we try to ‘harvest’ natural energy source with an environmentally friendly way, for use in the battery,” said Professor YH Percival .

Interestingly, this natural energy source obtained from starch in the daily diet, one potato. Zhang mentioned starch is broken down gradually using enzyme cascade.

In this way, the electrons with significant quality would appear to generate energy flow. Previously, there had been research on energy sources of sugar. This latest breakthrough, Zhang and his team claimed could produce significant energy.

“The method can now store 10 times more energy than the energy source with basic materials chemistry,” said Zhang.

The report, published in the scientific journal Nature Communications wrote, batteries made from potato starch can be used batteries powering up to three years in a single charge. Wow!

COS, Android & iOS Competitors from China

Rumors are saying China is developing a mobile operating system finally proved. Bamboo Curtain country recently announced COS, Chinese Operating System.

Interestingly, the Chinese statement claiming that the operating system thrusting better security compared to Android and iOS.

“Open source operating system that is no pose a security risk, and foreign-made systems difficulty adapting in China (with different languages), a problem that is fixed in COS,” wrote the Chinese Academy of Sciences in one of his articles as reported by the Times.

But it became a hot conversation is looks very thick feel of Android. Although the Chinese government declared COS was built from scratch by the selected team, a number of analysts also called COS is actually a modified heavy Android. Even in the website Sina Weibo, China’s Twitter-his, COS often quipped.

Name is Copy Other System. It is not open source, they (the development team COS-ed) certainly afraid that others will eventually see that the source code is the same as Android, wrote byxu, one user of Sina Weibo.

Contek action performed COS also seemed increasingly strengthened through a video demo. Inside COS run on HTC Butterfly S which is actually an Android phone. So needless to say profound adjustments to enable it.

Even so, as quoted from Ars Technica, Thursday (01/23/2014), mobile operators China Mobile and China Telecom is reportedly testing the device operating system COS.

Hybrid Cloud in Eyes Open Source

Currently, many companies began to look a hybrid cloud implementations. It is not independent because the conditions of cloud computing is increasingly complex.

Red Hat, as one of the companies that provide solutions that said, the hybrid cloud mix of private cloud combined with the public cloud.

Hybrid cloud itself comes from the demands of the enterprise who want the flexibility of cloud computing, but with the level of security in the style of a dedicated infrastructure.

Many technology vendors are trying to offer its cloud solutions respectively. Generally, the vendor claims his is the best solution in the implementation of the hybrid cloud. But the drawback is, almost all of which are proprietary software.

This means that users are forced to use it according to the standard that is applied to each vendor. In fact, sometimes the user is also required to buy the devices required by the solution offered.

What if the user can develop their own platform which uses the hybrid cloud? Well, this is trying to offer Red Hat. Known for the reliability of open source solutions besutannya, Linux distributions invites users to work on own solution you want to use the hybrid cloud.

According to Gordon Haff, Cloud Evangelist Red Hat, open source offers a high flexibility for enterprise IT offenders because it provides flexibility development. “(Open source) invites developers for an all-out in the (implementation) cloud,” he said at the office of Red Hat in Ciputra World Jakarta.

“Open source also eliminates the existing restrictions on proprietary software. In addition, 76% of companies are now beginning to assume importance in the open source cloud infrastructure,” he added.

He also mentions Google, Amazon, and Facebook which debuted using open source, and still continues to develop until today with Red Hat.

Subject doubt some companies who doubted the security of cloud computing, Haff said the use of open source developers can add the kind of protection that limits between the cloud and access devices.

If you do not want to bother, Haff added Red Hat also has a security solution that can fill the gap.

Furthermore, as the development of cloud computing, virtualization hardware Haff predict the future will also be popular. Because this solution is considered to be more efficient, especially in terms of price and flexibility. Moreover, when compared to a dedicated infrastructure where the users are not required to disburse a little if you want to upgrade.

Red Hat itself as the company exists in the world of open source has recently announced its latest enterprise solutions Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 7. This solution be the answer as the foundation for the hybrid cloud-based open-source or the start-called open hybrid cloud.

“So Red Hat offers a Platform as a Service via RHEL 7. Furthermore, developers can develop them according to business needs,” he concluded
