WE’LL BE BACK POSTING THIS FRIDAY, AND MAKING VIDEOS.
We’ve got the full team ready to get all the tech and gaming news you’ll need, so stay up to date on this site, and also www.YouTube.com/TechSquaredTV
Small favour, can you please check this YouTube video out, and give it a ‘Thumbs Up’, it’s for Pokemon Black and White 2 that we’re dead excited for!
After introducing the Angry Birds RC helicopter , iHelicopter are launching their luxury iPhone-controllable SUV, saloon and sports cars.
The new luxury RC garage consists of an Audi Q7, BMW 5 F10, BMW X6 and Audi R8, each costing $59.95, which is considerably less than their full-size versions. iHelicopter has even gone to the trouble of taking these bad boys out for a spin and recorded a video for your viewing pleasure. Check it out.
Pretty cool, eh? The BMW X6 and Audi Q7 measure 25.0 x 10.0 x 9.0 cm (1:20 scale) and come with three or four 1.5V AA batteries depending on which model you go for. Charging takes 60 minutes, which interestingly is the amount of fun you’ll have with the RC cars once they are fully charged.
So, what’s your take on that iPhone controllable RC goodness? Which one do you like best?
Wouldn’t it be nice if you never had to take up a USB port on your computer with your phone’s cable? That is very possible and it’s a one- time process. You will need: an Android device and a Windows computer. If you have any questions, please refer to my video below for a step by step guide.
First, download SwiFTP Server to your Android device. This is a free application. Next, open the application and hit the setup button. Fill in the client log in information (remember this information for later). Leave the port number the same; it’s not necessary to change it. Everything else is optional. Save it and hit start on the main screen. Then go to your computer.
On your computer, navigate to your start menu and click on “Computer” in the start menu side bar. Once that opens, click on “Map network drive”. Once that opens up, click on “Connect to a Web site that you can use to store your documents and pictures”. After that, hit “Next” in the window that pops up. Make sure the option “Chose a custom network location” is selected, then click “Next”.
Go back to your phone and on the main page of the app. You’ll see the Wifi URL, type that URL into the “Internet or network address” box. Once that is done, click next, name your device and then you’re done!
From this point on all you need to do is start the app and click start. Then navigate back to “Computer” on your computer and whatever you named your device will be under “Network Location”. You can send and receive files wirelessly from your phone.
The reason this works is because you’re creating a server on your phone, so you’re accessing a server from your computer. Thanks for reading and watching!

While it isn’t until February that we will be seeing the PlayStation Vita (Others calling it the PS4), we have had numerous reports on the device from CES, including videos, new images and more! Unfortunately, we cannot be at CES 2012, so we’ve managed to find some videos about the PSVita, thanks to YouTubers SoldierKnowsBest and Jon4Lakers, we’ve been able to find out more information of the Vita, so sit back, and enjoy these videos!
Hey guys, here i’m reviewing the Sony cmt-fx300i hifi system, this hifi system also works as an ipod docking station. In this video you can also get a feel to the hifi’s sound quality. The sony cmt-fx300i is a good quality budget docking station, cd player and radio. It features both am and fm radio offering many radio stations. The sound is always very important in hifi system and to be honest I have to say it’s the best sound i’ve heard in sometime on such a low priced hifi system. The output sound is 10w, this is fairly loud. The sony hifi has a nice simple design to it and offering more navigation and options on the controller. The radio it’s self is very small for it’s sound quality, it would be ideal for a bedroom or a shelve. Audio in input is also available. Best price: 80 pound.
Sony Ericsson are in for a busy week, they are currently in the process of dropping the ‘Ericsson’ phones and updating their Android Smartphone ‘the Xperia range’ to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. As we know the CES 2012 is coming up in just a matter of weeks now and Sony Ericsson are getting prepared to show of their sparkling new Smart Phone the Sony Xperia LT28.
So is it going to be a stunner at the CES 2012?
Well it’s Specifications has been given away by its Bluetooth certification entry and it looks really promising. We are now very sure that the phone will feature a 13MP camera, 4.55-inch HD 720p Reality Display screen, front-facing camera and LTE compatibility. Bluetooth though is not quite so stunning though with only Bluetooth 2.1 rather than the snazzy new Bluetooth 3.0.
Example Picture from the Sony Xperia lt28
We’ve gathered together details on its possible specifications including chips, cameras and retina displays – with a little bit of help from mysterious, unnamed people who can’t possibly be identified.
So what’s the word on the street about the next iPad?
We’ve put together a video wishlist of the features we’d like to see in the next iPad.
Apple iPad 3 release date
On 1 July, Digitimes reported that Taiwanese-based component suppliers were gearing up for production of the iPad 3. In October 2011 it was later reported that production would certainly start before the end of the year.
However, during August, a rumour broke that Apple was set to delay the launch of the iPad 3, due to a shortage of retina displays from its suppliers LG and Samsung – more on the display shortly.
Digitimes reported in late November 2011 that panel makers had already started shipping panels for the new iPad 3 – a million in October and two million in November.
Interestingly, in November 2011, Digitimes suggested that the spring’s new iPad would, in fact, be a revised iPad 2, with a brand new iPad design due later in 2012.
Foxconn, Apple’s major manufacturing partner, is also said to be starting production on the iPad 3 in January. Digitimes says the new model is expected to meet the heady heights of 9.5 to 9.8 million units over the course of Q1 2012.
The iPad 3 release date looks set for Spring 2012, with Citi analyst Richard Gardner even predicting it could be as early as February.
The Apple iPad 3 UK release date is a mystery
With Apple unable to meet initial demand for the iPad 2, we’d expect a staggered release date for the iPad 3 too: Apple will most likely follow the pattern it has with the previous two iPad launches and have a US release first, followed by a UK release days later.
According to the Korea Times in November 2011, the A6 processors are to be manufactured by Samsung, despite the companies’ ongoing patent battles.
The Apple iPad 3 specs include a dual-core processor…
It’s possible that the iPad 3 will have a brand spanking new processor, Apple’s A6 – which will surely be a quad-core ARM-based processor. Quad-core designs are imminent from all ARM partners.
Apple iPad 3 display
A retina display was widely predicted for the iPad 2, but of course the current iPad doesn’t have a double-resolution display: for now, that’s something you’ll only get in the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S. Could an iPad 3 Retina Displaybe on the way? It’s the very first thing on our iPad 3 wish list.
The exciting news is that it looks as though it is happening, with Apple reportedly testing suppliers’ current shipments of 2048 x 1536 resolution 9.7-inch displays.
However, rumours continued over the summer and autumn of 2011 that the retina display in the iPad 3 was continuing to be a challenge.
Back in May 2011, we reported that the iPad 3 could launch with a Samsung-made AMOLED screen, following rumours that Apple has been in talks on the matter with Samsung execs. There have also been more LG and Samsung rumours, too.
However, according to the Wall Street Journal in late November 2011, Sharp will manufacture panels for the device. Apparently Apple is investing in infrastructure at Sharp’s LCD plant. Further rumourssaid that Apple is looking to implement some nifty dual LED lightbar technology into the iPad 3, apparently in a bid to counter-balance the brightness issue that the Apple tablet may have, due to its super-high pixel density.
A part leak in early December again pointed to a Sharp-manufactured 2048×1536 retina display and dual lightbar.
Will the iPad 3 have a smaller dock connector?
Parts previewed on some websites indicate that, although the iPad 3 will still have a 30 pin dock connector, the packaging is streamlined. Well, if this is true, we knew it would happen sooner or later.
The iPad 3 hardware could include an NFC chip
Apple’s very interested in Near Field Communications, and one particularly tasty rumour at Cult of Mac suggests that the iPhone 5 will use NFC to take over nearby Macs, enabling you to use your data and settings with a flick of the wrist.
The iPad 3 specifications will include more storage
The iPad 2 has the familiar 16/32/64GB storage options, but as flash storage comes down in price, a 128GB option for the iPad 3 isn’t impossible – although that might depend on the situation in Asia, where natural disasters have caused chaos in parts of the electronics industry this year.
The iPad 3 features could include a Thunderbolt port
Two generations of USB-free iPads suggest that Apple just isn’t interested in adding one, but the new Thunderbolt port found in the 2011 MacBook Pro andMacBook Air could be another story: it’s a combined accessory/display connector with astonishingly fast performance.
iPad 3 to be a 4G LTE unit?
Cnet.com believes that the new iPad may feature a Qualcomm 4G LTE Gobi 4000 chip for next-gen connectivity.
There could be more than one iPad 3
TUAW says the iOS 5 code features new code files for USB devices in the iOS 5 firmware, Through this, TUAW found references to an iPad 3,1 and an iPad 3,2.
The iPad 3 could be thicker
The iPad 3 might be bulking out, reportedly so it can house a higher-resolution display than the iPad 2, and the extra girth is all down to pixel density.
The iPad 3 could be made by someone other than Foxconn
Apple was said to be in talks with another Far Eastern manufacturer as the release of the iPad 3 nears. Digitimes says that as there was a fire at usual supplier Foxconn in May, Quanta Computer and Pegatron Technology could benefit.
On 1 August it was reported that a contract had definitely gone to Pegatron rather than Foxconn.
The iPad 3 specs might include an SD card slot
This was widely predicted for the iPad 2 and, like the Retina Display, didn’t materialise. One for version 3, perhaps? Using a separate adapter to read camera cards is rather inelegant and clunky.
The iPad 3 specification should include a better camera
The rear-facing camera on the iPad 2 isn’t brilliant: an iPhone 4S-style camera and flash would do nicely.
The iPad 3 might use gesture controls
Could the iPad 3 have Kinect-style gesture controls? We’re not so sure, butrumours suggested so in late October 2011.
The iPad 3 could feature a carbon fibre case
Apple has hired a carbon fibre expert, senior composites engineer Kevin Kenney, fuelling speculation that the next iPad could be encased in the lightweight material.

It’s slimmer and lighter than the iPad 2, and it’s the best Android tablet yet
Welcome to the top spot, Samsung.
The outstanding Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 Honeycomb tablet is lighter and a hair thinner than the Apple iPad 2, and has a smaller footprint than either the MotorolaXoom or the Acer Iconia Tab A500, which are heavier and bulkier than most tablets.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is a major contender.
We reviewed the short-livedSamsung Galaxy Tab 10.1Valready, but that thicker and heavier device has since been discontinued (It looked as if Vodafone might pick up the 10.1V tab but it is now waiting to release the newer 10.1 model).The only other important players in the tablet market, are the brilliant 10.1-inch Asus Eee Pad Transformer as well as theBlackBerry PlayBook and the HTC Flyer, which are both so-so 7-inch models.
The Galaxy Tab 10.1 is currently slated to go on sale in the UK at the end of July/beginning of August.
And if you want to take a closer look at the slate, you can check out our Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 video review.
So what sets the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 apart? For starters, this is one light and thin tablet. At just 8.6mm, it is 0.2mm thinner than the iPad 2. And you know what? At 565g it’s also 36g lighter.
It’s as though someone at Samsung sat down and demanded that the 10.1 have world-beating raw system specs.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is a marvel of engineering, given its size. Holding one in your hand, you might mistake it for a truncated version of a Samsung LED HDTV, which are also market leaders. There’s a slight edge around the screen that is not touch enabled, a silver edge, and an all-white back.
The device just feels right. Unlike the Acer Iconia A500 and the MotorolaXoom, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 finds that ideal balance between a pick-up-and go e-book reader such as the Amazon Kindle 3 and a 10-inch tablet that’s perfect for watching movies on a long car trip.
By including Android Honeycomb (version 3.1 to be exact) Samsung has also one-upped the competition (though 3.1 has also already landed on the Transformer). The point release includes a few new additions. You can resize widgets and scroll through open apps in the pop-up thumbnails for the “recent apps” list.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 doesn’t have a USB port, so it doesn’t take advantage of the new Android 3.1 feature to support USB-connected peripherals which is a shame, but that’s not the direction Samsung is going with this tablet. This is all about pick-up-and-go functionality and portability.
Samsung actually downgraded the built-in camera on the Galaxy Tab 10.1 compared to the Galaxy Tab 10.1V, which had an 8MP rear camera. Still, the new model has a 3MP rear camera, which is three times higher than the Apple iPad 2‘s camera. There’s also a front-facing 2MP camera.
There are quite a few interesting perks and additions on this tablet. Some may seem underwhelming at first, but as a whole they give Apple a good run for the prize.
One subtle change is that the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 has a 7000mAh battery for all-day tablet use. In our tests, it lasted about nine hours for everyday tasks. The Apple iPad 2 battery is 6600mAh.
The 10.1 also has a four-way accelerometer and gyro (the Apple iPad 2 uses a three-way accelerometer and gyro – starting to see a pattern here?). That may seem like a minor upgrade, but most of the games we tested on the Galaxy Tab 10.1 responded faster to quick turns and screen rotations, and generally worked better for controlling games. It also has great side speakers for playing music and movie audio, and plays smooth 1080p video.
And of course, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 matches the features of other Android tabs: built-in GPS, support for Adobe Flash in the browser (you still have to download it on your own), 1290 x 800 screen resolution, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, the Nvidia Tegra 2 dual-core processor and Android tablet app.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 is a smart buy for anyone who wants a light and portable Android tablet. Google still has a ways to go on apps for Android – there are only a few dozen that are seriously worth downloading, compared to thousands of worthy iOS apps.
The ecosystem for media is a bit underdeveloped on the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 as well. Sure, you can watch movies stream on the web, but for downloads you’re mostly on your own.

MuscleNerd recently gave an update on the Status of the iPhone 4S and iPad 2 Jailbreak and released pictures and video of the work in progress:
Video Mentioned -
It is not uncommon for pictures and videos of proof of the Jailbreak to be posted within a few weeks of a released jailbreak, so here’s to hoping those of us with newer devices can get back to customising soon!
Will you be jailbreaking your device when it is available?
