GooApple 3G - high quality iPhone 4 clone running Android

Chinese Smartphone is an exact iPhone 4 replica with Android 2.2 Froyo and iOS-Icons

Chinese Fake factories have produced a lot of replicated gadgets, which are known as cheap and low quality imitates of well known brands. Products from Nokia and Blackberry are used for "inspiration" and sold with funny names like "Blockberry" and "Nckia". Of course the favourite brand is Apple and its iPhone.  The latest product is called "GooApple", where the design of Apples iPhone 4 is mixed with Google Android software technology.
iPhone 4-Design
This devices uses the iPhone 4 design in an exact way. For this reason original accessories can be used for the fake iPhone as well. The hardware components are different as well. For example insted of Apples A4 processor, the chinese phones uses a Qualcomm-Processor and instead of Micro-SIM card a normal sized SIM is used. Other specification are the same as for the original: WLAN, 3G, 3.5 inch touchscreen (but lower resolution) and a 5 megapixel camera.

Froyo in iOS-Style
Android 2.2 Froyo is used as operating system. The creators of the device do not use the standard Andoid look and feel. Insead they have developed an interface, which looks the same as iOS. For brandnames and logos they are more cautious. On the back, where you will find the Apple logo, there is and Android robot with the Apple sign on its chest. This logo is also displayed during the boot process.

No Fake
The demonstration of the gadget can be seen in following video. Therefore it is proven that this gadget already exists and this is not a fake message. The Blogger of M.I.C. Gadget tested the devices and their fazit is: The GooApple is the best iPhone 4 clone yet.
The iPhone 4 clone is available since June and costs about 184 Euros, which is not the cheapest of the chinese imitates but still a lot cheaper than the original. To get this phone you have to take a trip to the Chinese city Shenzen, which is close to Hongkong and a lot of Eelectronic companies are located there.

ArcGIS 10.1 Beta Launch and Deprecation Plan

ArcGIS 10.1 Beta 1 is now available for download to all those that have registered and been accepted into the program. Downloads have been made available from the Customer Care Portal and information and how to access this can be found on the ArcGIS Beta Community Site. This site is the portal for all information related to the beta.

One big drawback of ArcGIS 10.1:
There is no change in Desktop at 10.1 in regards to 64-bit support. ArcMap is a 32-bit application, but ESRI do support it running on 64-bit Windows. Currently ESRI is workung on a research project for native 64-bit ArcGIS application but it is not going to make 10.1.
ArcGIS 10.1 Deprecation Plan:
ARCGIS DESKTOP 10.1 ArcGIS 10.1 will no longer support the Solaris versions of ArcReader and ArcGIS Engine.ArcGIS 10.1 will be the last release supporting ArcReader for Linux.  SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 and Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server 5 will be supported.  However, SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 and Red Hat Enterprise Lin…

Tesla Model 3 - Dashboard Concept

Will 2017 be the year of Tesla Model 3? At last years Telsa Model 3 introduction event Elon Musk stated that first Model 3 will be shipped to customers by the end of 2017. Latest news show that currently production lines are set up and first Model 3 shall be produced by July 2017 and delivered mainly to employees as beta tester. For this reason it is very likely that we will see some Model 3 on Californias roads by mid of this year. Some expert expect the total production of cars for 2017 to 30000 up tp 50000 cars, where high production rates will be reached not before 2018.

The design of the Model 3 is well known since the introduction event back in March 2016, and it is expected that the outside will not change much. But there are some roumors that there will be quite some changes on the interior of the car especially the dashbord.

Recently I came across a new dashboard study. Have a look here.

Precize 3-D model of Mount Everest

The highest mountain on earth is now available as 3D terrain model free for download. The resolution of the model is 50 by 50 cm. Not everyone can climb the Mount Everest (even though several hundred cimbs are registered each year, and still claim their victims) from their living room.

Scientists of the DLR (Deutsches Institut für Luft- und Raumfahrt) together with 3D Realitymaps and Digitalglobe have calculated a realistic three-dimensional model based on satellite imagery. The software for calculating the model was originally used for making 3D models of Mars. According to scientists currently it is not possible to create a more precise model based on civil satellites. The 8848 meters high mountain was recorded by various satellites and different angles. These data builds the foundation of the terrain model and 3D textures. To use the model on your personal computer you have to install a special viewer which can be downloaded via htt…
