The site 9to5Mac found a file called "BiometricKitUI" by downloading the iOS 4 beta 7.Apple has released the latest version of iOS 4 beta 7 to developers last night. Some changes are from the previous version and one of them confirmed the rumors by spotting the code. A biometric reader could equip the future iPhone 5S of Apple brand. According to the latest rumors, the new Smartphone from Apple should be presented in the fall of September or October. Hamza Sood, a developer has identified in the code of iOS 4 beta 7 data suggesting to the next integration of a fingerprint reader in the "Home" button on the Smartphone. Code, after consideration shows that the iPhone user will have to put his thumb on the Home key and imprint will appear in the image and provides access to the Smartphone, instead of a PIN . This code is written in a file named "BiometricKitUI" and a line indicates "fingerprint." The biometric reader is not the back of the device but rather integrated into the Home button.

Apple Releases Logic Pro X, MainStage 3

Apple today announced Logic Pro and MainStage X 3. They work from OS X 10.8.4, with a 1280 x 768 and 4 GB of RAM. Note that the rewriting means that all 64-bit Audio Units must also be used.
This software is available on the Mac App Store. They are respectively the rates unchanged 180 € and 27 €. They go out accompanied by a free application for iPad Remote Control. The Loop offers a test preview of Logic. The interface evolves into the shadows, like Final Cut Pro X, and it gives better access to controls and instruments. There are also some small changes in design or color icons and positioning libraries. It was also an option to hide the interface and to further the content being worked on. Users less familiar with this application should nevertheless be able to work more easily. This version introduces X Track Stacks to classify and merge multiple tracks into one, or create multi-layered instruments. Assemblies that can be saved and reused at will.

Then there are the Smart Controls to manipulate in one step several plug-ins and settings. Other new features include Drummer, a support tool for drummers including different styles of percussion. It is described at length in a video by Dalrymple. This application is accompanied by a plug-in to assemble their own kits by drawing in a collection of instruments. Apple has also added the feature to adjust Flex Pitch melodies or voice playing each note individually through a waveform. As for MainStage, Apple dresses as a new interface and compatibility with changes in Logic Pro X. Logic Pro Remote allows you to control Logic since its tablet by WiFi. For example, to transform the iPad fretboard, drum pad - as we know it with GarageBand - mixer or transport control. It will need at least iOS 6 and a mini iPad or iPad 2.

Mavericks DP4 integrated with LinkedIn

The fourth version of OS X 10.9 released yesterday, currently it is only reserved for paying developers. The integration of professional social network LinkedIn has been known since from the early versions, but it was not effective before the DP4. After entering the password in System Preferences, you can send a status from Notification Center. The principle is exactly the same as Twitter, Facebook, and iMessage, and even the interface does not change. Incidentally, a fourth icon is added to this place and we would choose the icons whether it should be displayed or not. OS X Mavericks, however, imposes activate all icons sharing, or remove them all.  As with other social networks already built into OS X, the integration of LinkedIn is also done in the browser for internet addresses, or by selecting the text and choosing the right option of sharing in the secondary menu.

Compared to Twitter and Facebook on the other hand, we cannot share a picture.
Another common point is the integration of the address book. Your LinkedIn contacts are automatically retrieved and stored in Contacts with a separate group and the fusion of information for those already present. It can also, in System Preferences, expand its address book with pictures of the profiles on the network. Beyond the integration of LinkedIn, a few more minor changes are noted in the fourth beta. The installation screen has been modified and adopted a very white minimalist interface that is reminiscent of iOS 7.  Finally in Mission Control, you can scroll through the office windows using the usual gesture trackpad (three or four fingers to the left or to the right). This is very convenient for you to quickly find the window you are seeking. The self-correcting OS X Mavericks did not change the operation, but it changes slightly on the form. The words are not corrected automatically underlined in blue, but bright green. The goal was to make them more visible, it succeeded.

Motorola rdu2020 two way radios

Many smaller sports venues are beginning to take advantage of all the beneficial features of two way radios. Here are some of the ways that the employees at these venues are making good use of their walkie-talkies.

With two way radios, employees working at small baseball or football fields can remain in contact with one another. This can help when visitors are looking for seats to watch the game. One employee with a walkie-talkie in the entrance area of the field can talk to another who is circulating throughout the seating area. He or she can report the number of seats available in a certain section. This helps visitors to the ball field to avoid the frustration of walking around looking for empty seats.

Another place where small sports venues use walkie-talkies is in the concession area. One employee in the concession area with a walkie-talkie can contact another employee who is close to the storage facility. The person can request various items that are running low in the concession stand. Once again, this helps employees to avoid wasting time walking back and forth from storage to the concession area.

Finally, security employees working at the ball field can easily communicate with one another via walkie-talkies. Not surprisingly, security personnel who are in constant contact with one another are able to take care of any disturbances at the ball field in quick, efficient fashion. The motorola rdu2020 two way radios are capable of accomplishing these tasks at a small sports venue.

VLC is back on the App Store

The iOS version of VLC media player is available again after being removed from the App Store in January 2011 due to a compatibility problem with the GPL. This is good news for iOS users; the VLC player is back on the App Store after being removed in January 2011 and by that time, a dispute had arisen between the developers of the open source media player which was published under the GPLv2 license. However, the conditions of use of the App Store in some respects contradicted the terms of such license. As a result, one of the developers had obtained the removal of VLC. Now, VLC 2.0 is released under GPLv2 and MPLv2 (Mozilla Public License) dual license. Incidentally, this new version brings changes in depth, including the management of multi core architecture and the management of all video codecs supported in the version of VLC Desktop. Also on the menu, subtitles and AirPlay compatibility for playback on external displays. VideoLAN also indicated that SDK will arrive later this summer.
