BlueFinity Debuts Rapid App Development Platform for Business

Developing and deploying the right business apps are a proven way of helping companies become more efficient and profitable. Business apps that integrate with existing IT infrastructures or provide new applications can either help management teams and employees run their operations more effectively, or can be a really effective way to better engage customers to boost growth.

To date, the creation and implementation of quality and high functionality apps has been considered challenging, resource intensive and expensive. Many companies have been deterred because of concerns about the speed and cost of development, how to cope with multiple device types, the integration with different databases or existing systems, changing business requirements and technology, and how to ensure growth potential and flexibility in to the future.

BlueFinity International has provided a solution with the release of Evoke, a new Rapid Business App Development platform.

Evoke is a cost-effective product that delivers web, hybrid and native apps, it integrates with all major SQL and MultiValue databases and can be deployed across multiple devices and platforms, all from a single design project.

Designed for the rapid development and deployment of mobile, desktop and web apps, Evoke allows companies to build business apps more easily and to extend their enterprise applications to customers, employees, and partners in a fraction of the time and cost of traditional methods.

It offers all the major features of a typical RAD environment, including menu creation, integration of device specific features, styling and data management, along with a WYSIWYG screen designer. A key benefit of Evoke is that it is future proof — no matter how much the business needs change or technology evolves, it still offers an unlimited growth path.

Evoke offers an extensive array of UI widgets,…

Three 100GB SIM-only deals. Big data, not-so-big cost.

Three 100GB SIM only deals. Big data, not so big cost.
It’s Friday! Clucking Friday!

Now, although this isn’t “all you can eat”, it’s still a lot of data. Yes, yes, I know there’ll still be the “die hards” out there who really, really want the completely and utterly unlimited mobile data pipes, but if you’re looking for that then Three still offer their “AYCE plans”.

This, though, is a 100GB plan. It’s still a lot of data, and more than I’d ever use in a month. You can choose between one of these 100GB deals if data is your thing. The deals on offer are as follows, and both have all you can eat minutes and all you can eat texts..

100GB Data – 12 month SIM-only plan – £25 per month.

100GB Data – Rolling monthly plan – £29 per month.

As you can see, there’s a £4 difference depending on whether you want a monthly or a yearly contract. If you’ve got a phone already and you need plenty of data (but not quite unlimited) then these SIM-only deals might be just up your street.

Friday. Yess….!!

  • Innovative New Wireless Antenna is Dramatically Smaller

    Researchers at Northeastern University have demonstrated a new type of radio antenna that operates in the frequencies used for some cellular networks and Wi-Fi, but is up to 100 times smaller than current antenna designs. The new antenna can be manufactured on a single chip approximately 1mm across. It receives radio signals by first converting radio waves to acoustic waves, then to electrical signals, and the same in reverse for transmitting. The existing method of converting directly between radio and electrical signals requires an antenna with a physical length 1/10 the radio wavelength. The new technique uses the properties of acoustic waves to permit an antenna made of a piezomagnetic membrane that’s just 1/1000 the physical length of the radio wavelength. The piezomagnetic material is joined with a piezoelectric material to create the necessary electrical link. The technology could shrink the size of phones and wearables. It may also open up lower frequencies — which today require antennas too large to carry around — to mobile devices.

    What We Know So Far about New iPhone, Galaxy and Pixel Phones

    With the dog days of summer now past, the season bringing a new generation of flagship smartphones is rapidly approaching. And the coming season promises to be a big one, with the arrival of Apple’s 10th anniversary iPhone, Google’s new Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, and the just-unveiled Samsung Galaxy Note 8.

    While new iPhones are typically launched in September, design and supply issues are expected to delay the next star in Apple’s lineup until later this year. However, a French technology site reported yesterday that the next iPhone, likely to be named the iPhone Edition rather than the iPhone 8, could debut on Sept. 12, with the device hitting the market on Sept. 22.

    Meanwhile, Google appears set to unveil its second-generation Pixel smartphones on Oct. 5, according to a leak revealed on Twitter yesterday by mobile tech writer Evan Blass. The new handsets will be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 836 systems-on-chip, according to Blass.

    New Multi-Window Mode on Galaxy Note 8

    For now, one smartphone launch is more certain than the rest: the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 (pictured above). Officially revealed yesterday at Samsung’s Unpacked event in New York City, the Galaxy Note 8 is available for pre-ordering today.

    Set to hit stores on Sept. 15, Samsung’s latest smartphone will feature a large, 6.3-inch Super AMOLED “Infinity Display” with curved edges and minimal bezels at the top and bottom. The large display makes the Galaxy Note 8 “the ultimate multitasking smartphone,” Samsung said.

    A new “App Pair” feature will enable users to launch two apps at once, making it possible to, for example, watch a video on one half of the screen while texting a friend on the other half.

    The Galaxy Note 8, which can be used with an improved S pen for writing and drawing, will…

    South Korea's 'Trial of the Century': Samsung Heir's Fate Looms

    Until a few months ago, Lee Jae-yong was well on the way to securing his status as South Korea’s most powerful business leader.

    But on Friday, the heir to the Samsung empire could be starting a lengthy prison sentence for his alleged role in a bribery and corruption scandal that has already triggered the impeachment of the country’s former president, Park Geun-hye.

    Lee, AKA Jay Y Lee and Samsung’s vice-chairman and de facto head, has denied trying to seek political favors from Park in exchange for making large donations to foundations run by her close friend and confidante, Choi Soon-sil.

    The billionaire’s fate rests in the hands of the Seoul central district court, where a panel of judges will deliver a verdict on charges ranging from bribery to embezzlement and perjury.

    The 49-year-old, who took over the reins at Samsung after his 75-year-old father, Samsung chairman Lee Kun-hee, suffered a debilitating heart attack in 2014, faces up to 12 years in prison.

    More than 450 people applied for just 30 seats in the public gallery to witness what has been billed as the “trial of the century.” Millions of other South Koreans outside the courtroom will be glued to coverage of the first major legal battle prompted by a scandal that has rocked the country’s political and business worlds.

    Samsung’s alleged involvement in the Park scandal has highlighted the collusive ties between politicians and powerful, family-controlled conglomerates — or chaebol — and called into question the foundations on which South Korea built its postwar economic success.

    Public anger over Park’s conduct while in office has heightened pressure on the court to convict Lee. While he has denied that he paid bribes to further his career at a company founded by his grandfather Lee Byung-chul in 1938, Samsung executives have been accused of lying in their testimony…
