Apple Watch が来た!

Apple Watch Sport の白を買いました。会社の同僚も何人かが Apple Watch を買ってます。
数日使ってみた感想を書いておきます。
自分はあまり出歩く仕事ではないので、電池の保ちは十分なように感じてます。あと時計としてはごく普通な感じです。周りの人からも注目されますし、だいたいどうやって使うのか?と聞かれることが多いので、十分に使いこなせるようになっていない自分はちょっと人前で出すことは恥ずかしいです。
iPhoneアプリとの連携もできますが、まだあまり便利だとは感じませんでした。対応アプリが出てきてから買っても良かったかもしれません。
でも、とても目立ちますよ。営業の同僚は客先ではとても話題にできるから役に立ってると言ってました。
こんなレビューがあったので参考までにどうぞ。

애플 펜슬 1세대가 지원되는 애플(Apple)이 깜짝 신제품을 발표했다. 이전과 달리 이례적으로 조용히 공개된 제품은 2015년 9월 이후 3년 반 만에 선보이는 ‘아이패드 미니’와 ‘아이패드 에어’ 2가지. 7.9인치의 콤팩트한 사이즈의 ‘아이패드 미니’는 지난해 출시된 아이폰 XS/XR과 동일한 A12 바이오닉 칩을 적용해 시리즈 중 가장 높은 화소 집적도를 자랑한다. 또한 주변 광량에 따라 색온도를 자동으로 조정하는 트루론 기술이 추가돼 시각적 편안함을 제공하기도. 3세대 ‘아이패드 에어’는 10.5인치 레티나 디스플레이를 탑재하고도 500g도 채 안 되는 가벼운 무게가 특징. A12 바이오닉 칩과 뉴럴 엔진을 장착해 전작 대비 70% 향상된 성능으로 강력한 멀티플레이 기능을 과시한다. 두 모델은 모두 애플 펜슬이 지원되며 저장 공간은 64GB, 256GB 2가지. 컬러웨이는 실버, 골드, 스페이스 그레이 등으로 가격은 미니 49만 9천 원, 에어 62만 9천 원부터 시작한다. 유심칩이 지원되는 셀룰러를 추가하면 약 17만 원 상향. 애플의 혁신적인 기술로 구성된 이번 시리즈는 현재 미국과 일본, 캐나다 등에서 바로 구매 가능하며 다음 주부터 중국에서도 만나볼 수 있다. 국내 출시 시기는 미정. 자세한 사양은 이곳에서 확인하길. 더 자세한 내용은 <아이즈매거진>링크에서
R2-D2型移動式冷蔵庫が欲しい!けど…
12月のスターウォーズ祭りを盛り上げるべく、いろいろとスターウォーズコラボ製品が出てきています。その中でも私が欲しいのはコレ! 写真を見ればすぐにわかる、R2-D2の形をした冷蔵庫です。 中国のメーカー「ハイアール」が発表していたものが、今日の昼から予約開始だそうです。 https://otakumode.com/shop/haier/aqua/R2-D2-Moving-Refrigerator ただ、問題になるのはその価格なんですよ。その値段はなんと 998,000 円(税抜)なんです。税金を入れると 1,077,840 円という 100 万円オーバーの超弩級価格の冷蔵庫です。 もちろん、100万円という価格に見合うのが商品力。「R2-D2」を等身大(高さ95センチ)で再現し、胴体部分に保冷機能を内蔵。缶やペットボトルなどを冷やせる移動式。赤外線利用のコントローラで前後左右に操作でき、頭部にはプロジェクターを内蔵し、ワイヤレス技術「Miracast」でスマートフォンなどに表示した映像の投影も可能。おお、すごい! でも、肝心の冷蔵庫としては缶飲料が6本入る程度の容量です。 だったら、缶一本だけ冷やすことのできるダースベイダー冷蔵庫(39,800円)の方がまだ現実的な感じがしますね。 等身大「R2-D2」冷蔵庫に、缶1本を冷やすダース・ベイダーのマスクも──ハイアール「スター・ウォーズ」コラボで“日本家電の覚醒” http://www.itmedia.co.jp/news/articles/1510/29/news089.html
Taylor Swift vs. Apple...Taylor WINS
Taylor Swift just went up against the biggest company in the world and WON. That's unheard of. No one has ever had that kind of star-power before. But now, Taylor Swift has it. Taylor was pissed that Apple thought it was going to get away with not paying the artists whose music would be played on their new music streaming service for the first three FREE trial month period. AKA BS. Taylor wasn't having any of that so instead of dismissing it since it really didn't hurt her either way, she pounced. Attacked politely. And claimed an utter victory! This will definitely go down in the history books!!! So here's how the battle went down: Swift tweets at Apple by attaching a letter of hers from Tumblr. Taylor speaks politely and confidently ending with a snippy, "We don't ask you for free iPhones. Please don't ask us to provide you with our music for no compensation." AND TAYLOR STRIKES AGAIN. Not only does Taylor get an outpour of support from her millions of fans, but she also gets backing from major celebrities and recording studios. Like woah. Taylor Swift then gets a personal call from the Apple VP himself as well as this personal tweet. And as the world watches...everyone gasps because for the first time in Apple's history...Apple loses. TAYLOR FOR THE WIN. The media is celebrating on every major platform known to man. Everyone's shocked she did it and it only took 48 hours. Insane. Taylor attacked and conquered the most powerful company in the world by posting a message to Tumblr. She's stronger and more powerful than ever and now everyone knows it. And Swift thinks to herself, "All in a day's work." NBD
에어팟 2세대, 이전과 달라진 점은?
혁신은 어디에? 수많은 유출로 많은 이들의 애간장을 태웠던 무선 이어폰 에어팟 2가 지난밤 깜짝 공개됐다. 연일 지속된 아이 패드와 아이맥 신제품 발표에 이어 가장 손꼽아 기다리던 에어팟마저 등장한 것. 과연 1세대에 비해 어떤 점이 달라졌는지 지금 바로 확인해보자. 디자인 에어팟 2의 외관상 모습은 이전과 동일하다. 당초 유출된 블랙 컬러 혹은 매트한 소재의 신제품을 기대한 이에게는 큰 실망을 안겨준 터. 새롭게 선보인 차세대 버전은 1세대와 같은 형태, 질감으로 전반적인 디자인 요소를 그대로 가져왔다. 성능 1세대 제품과 달리 음성으로 시리(Siri) 구동이 가능한 에어팟 2는 이를 통해 볼륨 조절, 곡 변경, 전화 통화 등 이전보다 쉽게 활용 가능하다. 또한 애플은 차세대 버전에 헤드폰 특화된 H1 칩을 새롭게 탑재했다. 이로써 아이폰, 아이 패드 등과의 연결은 최대 2배 빨라지고, 통화 시 음성 감지 가속도계가 대화를 인식해 외부 소음을 걸러내고 보다 분명하게 전달하는 장점까지 갖췄다. 케이스 무선 충전이 가능한 케이스로 탈바꿈된 에어팟 2는 Qi 호환 충전 매트 위에 제품을 올려두면 LED 표시등이 충전 여부를 표시해 보다 손쉽게 충전 가능하다. 뿐만 아니라 한 번 충전으로 5시간의 재생과 최대 3시간의 통화 시간을 제공하기도. 완충 이후에는 무려 24시간 활용 가능해 사용자의 편의성을 높였다. 가격 무선 충전 케이스 모델의 경우 24만 9천 원, 일반 충전 제품은 19만 9천 원으로 책정됐다. 1세대의 가격이 21만 9천 원인 것에 비교하면 3만 원 상승된 것. 다만 일반 모델의 경우 오히려 2만 원 하락했으며 별도로 무선 충전 케이스만 구매시 9만 9천 원에 구매 가능하다. 에어팟 2는 미국 등 1차 출시국에서 다음 주부터 판매될 예정이며 국내 발매일은 미정. 혁신적인 기대감에 부흥하지 못했지만, 차세대 제품을 기다린 이에게는 당연 반가운 소식이 아닐 수 없다. 자세한 사양은 이곳에서 확인하길. 더 자세한 내용은 <아이즈매거진>링크에서
Emojis Are Not Made The Same
Not all devices are alike. Apple, Android, and Windows, to name a few, are very different operating systems and that key difference also makes for very different variations of emojis. The most popularized Unicode Consortium, or the body that selects which emojis will make their public debut, is the Apple version. They are used in marketing campaigns, commercials, apps, texting, food delivery, etc. However operating systems like iOS, Android, Windows, Blackberry, Samsung, LG, etc. don't always have the same variations of emojis that the general public is accustomed to. This leads to an ultimate dilemma, emojis are basically a language all their own and somehow they are getting lost in digital translation. Thanks to Yahoo tech, a comprised list of varied emojis from device to device: 1. Woman With Bunny Ears You may recognize this emoji normally as the Bunny twins, tap-dancing girls, showgirls, or any of the other various nicknames. However when you transfer over to Android, you'll be in a surprise that the emoji becomes a yellow gumdrop looking face with a brown wig and bunny ears. The dynamic duo is no longer, which probably leads to some confusion at Halloween for Android users who are curious as to when there was an emoji of two Woman With Bunny Ears. 2. Colored Hearts This one is all about design. Apple keeps the hearts very uniform, vibrantly colored, and as basic as can be. For Android, the emojis hold a lot more meaning while also being somewhat cheesy. There is practically no color variation and I don't even know what to think about the fuzzy heart. Emojis are supposed to be playful and I think Android really missed the boat on this one. 3. Watch Obviously iOS looks classier but I am definitely a bigger fan of Android for some reason. I think sometimes less is more and I think it translates well in this instance. After all, a watch is a universal symbol so it's really hard to mess that up between devices. If anything, the emojis from device to device just show a different kind of watch that is solely exclusive to it's own device which seems cool in this example. 4. Eggplant You know exactly what this means if it's sent in iMessage. And you know exactly how hilarious this emoji can be because let's be honest, there is really no everyday use for an eggplant so you might as well spice it up a bit if you know what I'm aiming at. Now as for Android, it's a poor example of an eggplant to begin with but there is no way that it'd ever be used for alternative purposes within messaging. Just no way. 5. Slice of Pizza Okay Android wins on this one. The iOS version looks like a horribly designed emoji that is trying way too hard to be life-like. I appreciate the pic-art look of Android's emoji in this comparison. However, Dominos Pizza is using the iOS emoji in their brand as you can order a pizza now just sending that emoji. After all, that's pretty clever but the pizza emoji could get a generic facelift. 6. Rowboat This is a BIG difference. iOS looks certainly more appropriate and attractive on an interface. The Android immediately signals a date instance which could be totally misconstrued. Also Android needs to keep up with the times as emojis no longer have one option -- with LGBT and racial skin tones being introduced, their emojis need to be updated. Emojis are great because they include everyone and the rowboat needs the same. 7. Glowing Heart Either way, they both accurately depict what you're trying to show. Personally I like the iOS version more however the Android heart isn't horrible. A heart is a heart no matter how you dress it up. Good work to both. 8. Pistol/Gun Windows is the only operating system that doesn't include a gun that looks like iOS. Instead they've opted for a less serious space gun that could easily be more appropriate for Star Trek than anything else. With weapon emojis being taken more and more serious in the media, Windows will have to figure out how to not cause any trouble for its users who may be using their version of the gun emoji playfully while it will be translated into a more serious message. 9. Love Hotel Well to be honest, I've thought the 'H' on iOS stood for hospital and the heart symboled health. Apparently that's the exact opposite of what it meant. Windows does a much better job at representing this but they are both confusing. It wouldn't have killed them to spell out "hotel" on the building, you know. 10. Mobile Phone We get it, you love your own phone. 11. Donut Hmmm these are all very stereotypical of the interface they appear on. To be honest, Windows looks the least like a donut and I personally am not a fan. Android does a pretty good job and iOS is the most life like. I guess this one boils down to pure preference but it should be understood between each device fairly easily. I guess Windows doesn't like chocolate frosting. 12. Alien Monster Well these have very different connotations from the get-go. For iOS, most believe this emoji is a representation of an arcade game that you use with a joystick. For Android, however, it's actually alien monster that looks like an evil version of Pearl from Finding Nemo creepily ready to say "Awww you guys made me ink muhahahahahha!". We have an alien emoji already in iOS, why do we need this one? 13. Tennis Either way, they fit the bill and do a nice job at symbolizing. 10 for 10 on both.
すべてのリモコンをひとつに+かっこいい『HUIS/ハウス』発売決定
IT化が進んだ今でも現代でも、 自宅についたらまず手に取る事が多いであろう「リモコン」。 いよいよここに手がかかろうとしている。 クラウドファンディング『ファーストフライト』で1000万円を超える出資を集めたスマートリモコン『HUIS/ハウス』がいよいよ発売されるとのこと。 リモコンの再発明とも言われるこのハウスは、テレビ、ライト、エアコン、Blu-rayプレーヤー、あらゆるリモコンをひとつにまとめてしまうという意味ではいわゆる学習リモコンだ(登録はソニー以外も大丈夫だ)。画面のカスタマイズができつつ、電子ペーパーで省電力というもの良い。 なにより良いのは、かっこいい所。 真っ白で、必要なボタンだけを表示させられ、使わないときは立てておけるという。 よく使う道具なのに(手垢で真っ黒になるくらい)、蔑ろにしてきた今までが申し訳なかった。 値段は張るが、家庭のIT化はここから始めてもいい、と感じさせてくれる一品と思う。 HUIS REMOTE CONTROLLER HUIS-100RC 発売日 2月15日 お届け 3月以降 価格 27,950円(税込) インターフェース:電子ペーパー、赤外線接続 ※Bluetooth接続機能も追加予定 http://www.sony.co.jp/SonyInfo/News/Press/201602/16-012/ ソニー、多すぎるリモコンをカッコよくまとめる『HUIS』 複数家電の操作もこれ1台、 ソニーが電子ペーパーリモコンを一般発売「HUIS REMOTE CONTROLLER」 Sony、電子ペーパを用いた学習リモコン 「HUIS REMOTE CONTROLLER」の一般販売を開始
遂にオープンしたamazon books!その実態に迫る。
 数々の本屋に大打撃を与え続けてきたamazonであるが、 11/3に実店舗である「amazon books」をアメリカ、シアトルにオープンした。 何故今になって実店舗?という疑問が浮かぶが、amazon側としては ”ハードウェアやコンテンツ配信で急速に拡大している同社エコシステムの拠点 として打ち出したいようだ。” http://wired.jp/2015/11/06/amazons-first-store/ より引用 「Fire TV」や、「Fire」タブレット などを実際に手にとって利用することが出来る上に、ここに売られている商品は実際のamazonと同じ値段であるというメリットがある。また 「Amazon Prime Music」 からの音楽がスピーカーから流れていたり、 「Amazon Echo」 といういわばiPhoneにおける「siri」のような会話の出来る人工知能を体験出来るなど非常にコンテンツが盛り沢山となっている。  しかしながら一般的に本屋で求められる静かな空間で本を手にとって試しに読んでみたり、のんびりと本を適当に探したり、といった要素はこの「amazon books」にはなさそうである(そもそもここが本屋であるのかすらあやしい)のでその点は個人的にではあるがあまり足を運ぶ気になれない本屋かなとも思う。 とはいえ安くバリエーション豊かな商品が並ぶ空間というものは少なからず楽しく過ごせるものであるし、シアトルに仮に足を運んだ場合はチョロっと10分ほど訪れてみたいような場所かな、という気もした。
入力の極みを知る人の、21世紀タイプライタ「freewrite」
パソコンとディスプレイとキーボードとインターネットが バラバラになってきたこれからの道具。 ちょっと前までパソコンはなんでもできるがトゥーマッチな道具だった。 仕事で使う人間には必要ではあるが、パソコンの機能をすべて使いこなす人はいないだろう。「道具」としてはいまだベストとはいいがたい。 キーボードも普通の人にはボタンが多過ぎるかもしれない(笑) 物理的なキーボードの入力の優秀さとインターネットを存分に使う事とはイコールではないのだ。(「blackberry」という存在があるがここでは割愛する) スマホ、タブレット、Iotなどなどもはや自由な関係で良い時代になったのだ。例えばディスプレイのみでネットを活用する方向は、仮想キーボードや音声入力など現在模索中だ(ほぼフリックという人は少なくないだろうが)。 しかしキーボードの単体での価値の向上はどうだろうか。 以前紹介したPortabookは、キングジムが入力面だけを切り分けた道具であったポメラの発展形であったが、やはり道具としての魅力が増幅したかといえば、やや残念であった。 現時点で、キーボードは入力装置として最高の仕組みだ。しかしこれを魅力を格上げする流れはあまり無いようだ。界隈で名が知られているのは「東プレ」のREALFORCEだろうか。とにかく疲れにくく壊れにくいメカニカルキーボードとして有名だ。これを発展させることはできないか。次のキーボードとは。 ということで今回見つけたのがポメラとREALFORCEの合体ともいうべき、「フリーライタ」である。 https://store.getfreewrite.com/ モノカキ向け作業没頭用タイプライターFreewrite発売。 日本語対応、最大4週間持続のバッテリーでどこでも執筆 http://japanese.engadget.com/2016/02/24/freewrite-4/ 最近のノートパソコンでは実現できないしっかりと気持ちよく押せるキーボード。 必要な情報だけが表示される表示部。なにより思想を反映しているのが、右と左についているつまみだ。右はクラウド(icloudやEvernoteにもつながるという)につなぐかどうかの切り替え、左は保存する3か所をえらぶだけ、という。 重さは約1.8kg。確かに重たいがむしろ軽いようではしっかりした打鍵ができない。正しい選択だと思う。 現在は$449。決して安くはないが、集中した入力時間を得ることができるフリーライタは、次のキーボードと言ってもいいのではないだろうか。 ソリティアなどやって時間を過ごす社員のいる新聞社には、ぜひ導入すべきではないかと思う。 日本語もしっかり対応言語にはいっているようだ。 ------- What languages does the Freewrite support? At the time of this writing, we have committed support for the following languages: English (QWERTY, DVORAK, and COLEMAK), International English, German, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish, French, Danish, Swedish, Greek, Dutch, Turkish, Hebrew, Korean, Russian, Chinese, and Japanese. -------
圏外になれちゃう電波遮断ケース「Yondr」って知ってる?
以前から、通信可能地域が増えるほど、どんどん圏外である空間が貴重になってくるという話があるけど、この「Yondr」はスマホをこのポケットに入れるだけで電波を遮断しちゃうらしい!能動的に「圏外」を作れちゃうんです。こういう「圏外」つくれる村や装置に興味があったので、ちょっとときめく。w 公式サイト:http://overyondr.com/ 公式サイトは英語だし、あまり詳細が書いていないので、Yondrに関する他の記事も見つけてみた。 今のところの用途は、コンサートとかコメディショー、演劇とかを見に行った時に観客にスマホを入れてもらって演目に集中してもらうこと。このYondrを採用したコンサートなどでは、上の図のようにスマホを使えないゾーンと使えるゾーンを分けている。 (左側が使えないゾーン、右側が使えるゾーン。) コンサート参加者は、左側の使えないゾーンに入ると一切スマホを使えなくなるが、必要であれば右側のゾーンに出てスマホをオンラインにすることもできる。 実際にこのYondrを使用したコンサートもサンフランシスコでいくつかあるようで、今後の展開が楽しみ!!圏外になる不安に慣れてしまっている現代人がどうなるのか、ちょっと見たい気がするw 参考記事: http://www.geekwire.com/2015/meet-yondr-the-company-that-wants-you-to-put-your-phone-away-and-enjoy-the-show/
