LEAK: Apple Works On 3D Gesture Control Tech For iOS

Apple Inc. has filed a new patent for 3D gesture control with a physics metaphor control. Hopefully Apple is just experimenting with future technologies because I can’t imagine the iPhone 5 having NFC, 3D video recording, and virtually every ‘latest and greatest’ feature we’ve been learning about recently.

I mean, can’t a phone be *too powerful for its own good? Anyways, the developing technology was first reported as a patent leak and people suspect Apple will use this as some kind of tool for developers to better aid themselves in the workplace.

Awesome Samsung Fridge With Built-In Tablet

We’ve covered a couple of interactive refrigerators, but this new Samsung LCD fridge is just full of awesome. The fridge comes with a built-in notepad application that lets you leave notes for yourself to remember to fulfill your daily list of errands.

Flash Player 10.3 Leak, Watch Hulu On Your Tablet

If you’ve ever missed one of your favorite shows, you know you can check out www.hulu.com and hopefully catch what you missed through the episode streaming service. Unfortunately, while Hulu is free on the desktop, tablet owners were not allowed to use the service on mobile devices. Although people can opt to purchase Hulu Plus, who wants to pay $8 a month to watch reruns?

According to XDAdevelopers, the latest Flash Player update (Flash 10.3) exposes a leak in Android, and this time it isn’t a security leak! XDA member bigrushdog has successfully modded his Xoom to allow for Hulu watching on the tablet device.

Google Works On Addiction To Adobe Flash

Google announced yesterday that it has added Flash support to its Instant Previews feature even though it is cautioned against using Adobe’s plugin too heavily. With support for Flash, users will be able to use a regular web browser to see a Flash-heavy, website’s animations, layout, and videos in the quick view sidebar instead of having plugin errors. The method would implement whenever a website’s details were scraped by Google’s bots but would also be turned off when the preview had to be generated on-demand.

First of the many updates, and probably the first thing you’ll notice when you boot up the computer is that you’ll be taken to the Unity desktop, by default.
