New 'Anti-iPhone' Nokia Lumia 1020 Ad





Microsoft has posted a new video on its Windows Phone YouTube channel. As usual, it’s a short clip that mocks the iPhone 5’s photo sensor and claims that the Nokia Lumia 1020’s 41-megapixel camera with six physical lenses is a lot better, which is quite obvious even without watching the ad.

Here’s the description of the clip:

A kids's play is one of those times when you want to get the perfect shot. But most phones aren't capable of capturing quality photos at a distance. Even if it's just a few rows back. With the Windows Phone Nokia Lumia 1020 you get 41 megapixels so every seat is the best seat in the house.

You may watch the ad below. What do you think about it?

Apple patents interface for 3D objects creation



Apple is going to obtain a patent for 'Working with 3D objects'. It implies the technology of generating, modifying, and manipulating 3D objects with the help of 3D gesture inputs.

Three-dimensional objects can be modified using 3D gesture inputs. For example, a 3D object shown on a touch-sensitive display can be detected, and a 3D gesture input that includes a movement of a finger or a pointing device in proximity to a surface of the touch-sensitive display can be detected. Detecting the 3D gesture input can include measuring a distance between the finger or the pointing device and a surface of the display. The 3D object can be modified according to the 3D gesture input, and the updated 3D object can be shown on the touch-sensitive display.
