The sale of internet enabled consumer electronics devices is expected to surpass that of personal computers over the next few years.
According to the Consumer Platforms Report released by market research company IHS iSuppli, the sale of connected consumer electronics devices, which include TVs, set-top boxes, gaming consoles, Blu-Ray players and tablet devices, will reach 503.6 million units in 2013, up from 161 million units in 2010.
Meanwhile, the personal computer market will grow from 222.3 million units in 2010 to 253.3 million units in 2013. The research reported that by 2015, the shipments of connected devices will rise to 780.8 million units while PC shipments will be at 479.1 million.
The rise in shipments of internet connected consumer electronic devices will be led by tablet PC devices, which will ship 61.9 million units in 2013, up from 19.7 million units in 2010, the study claims.
“These new figures are the latest evidence that the Internet is not just for PCs anymore,” said Jordan Selburn, principal analyst for consumer platforms at IHS.
“The Internet now is revolutionising the consumer electronics business by delivering a range of products that can bring Web-based content to homes. In the future, consumers will be more likely to access the Internet through their televisions than via their PCs,” he added.
Recently we blogged about the Free Windows Live Skydrive Desktop PC Client – Gladinet
SkyDrive is a fantastic cloud storage option that many people still don’t know about. With 25GB of free space for your synced files, Hotmail attachments, and Office Web docs, it’s worth signing up for an account (if you don’t already have a Windows Live passport). What’s even better is that SkyDrive storage can be accessed by other apps — like sorami-skydrive for Android.
Install the app, enter your credentials, then tap the back button, and you’ve got full access to your SkyDrive storage. Not only can sorami download files, but the app can upload files to SkyDrive from your Android device. You can also create new folders, and the home button quickly returns you to the top level of your SkyDrive folders.
Sorami-skydrive is currently in beta, so expect a few bumps along the way. After creating a new folder, for example, the app became stuck on a ‘loading’ alert and I had to kill the task. The developer is very responsive to bug reports, however, and sorami-skydrive is improving at a steady pace.

Adobe has released an early incarnation of its new un-Flash web design tool, Adobe Edge.
First revealed last October at the annual Adobe Max show in Los Angeles, Edge is a means of building web animations using standard technologies such as HTML5,
Flash Professional tool when fashioning animated web advertisements, widgets, and other similar “interactive” media.
“We see both of these technologies – Flash and HTML – coexisting, just as they always have done,” Paul Gubbay, Adobe’s vice president of engineering,
design, and web, tells The Register. “With Flash, we’re focused on the upper echelon of rich interactivity – gaming apps, rich media apps, including
Built atop the open source WebKit rendering engine, Edge is part of Adobe’s ongoing effort to reposition itself in a world where
Apple has banned Flash from its mobile devices and even Microsoft has put its weight behind the latest web standards. Over the past
is the sort of work that would have gone into the proprietary Flash platform in years past.
“What we’ve been doing for a long time is focussing on our runtime: Flash. And because the HTML5 ecosystem wasn’t really moving, we weren’t doing a lot
there,” Gubbay says. “But over the last couple of years, there’s been a tidal wave of change [with HTML], and as a result, as we’ve been listening to customers, we’ve committed to doing more in the browser.”
The company has also beefed up the HTML tools available with its Creative Suite, and now it’s releasing an HTML animation tool
to the public much earlier in the development process than it normally would. The Edge “public preview is available from the Adobe Labs site, and it’s free of charge. Designers are
encourages to provide feedback that may help shape future releases. The preview will be regularly updated.
With the tool, you can add animations to existing HTML documents or fashion animations from scratch. You can import standard web graphics, such as SVG, PNG,
JPG and GIF files, and style them with CSS. The preview, Adobe says, will be regularly updated as it adds new tools, and it will remain free.

Google’s Chrome is Britain’s second most popular browser, a sign of the internet giant’s increasing grip on the UK search market.
Three years after launch, Chrome last month captured 22% of UK users and marginally overtook Mozilla’s Firefox browser, according to the web metrics firm Statcounter. Microsoft’s Internet Explorer is losing market share to Chrome but remains the most popular browser for UK users with 45% – although it has a head start by being pre-installed on almost all computers sold in Britain. Apple’s Safari is UK number four, with a 9% share.
Google’s rise in the browser market is in part down to nationwide advertising – Chrome is the first Google product advertised on British TV – but is largely attributed to its speed.
Lars Bak, the Google engineer responsible for Chrome, said the goal had never been to attract a huge user base, but to energise a dormant browser market: “Speed is a fundamental part of it, but it’s also about the minimal design and the way it handles security. If you as a user try [to load] a webpage and it feels snappy, it’s really hard to go back [to another browser]. It has shown that people spend more time interacting with the web.”
Unlike most of Google’s talent based at its Mountain View headquarters in California, Bak works from a converted farmhouse in the Danish countryside two hours from Copenhagen. He has become obsessed with speed, and despite numerous tests that show Chrome outstrips all rivals, he thinks it could be much faster. “You should never be happy with [existing] speed,” he said. “Of course it gets harder to make substantial gains, but it’s all healthy competition. From the beginning we wanted everybody to be fast, and now all browsers are fast. I’m absolutely flabbergasted [by the improvements made by rival browsers].”
Chrome is the number three worldwide, with a 20.65% market share according to Statcounter. But analysts expect it to edge ahead of Firefox, which has dipped steadily since January. Microsoft’s Internet Explorer has also fallen heavily, to 43%, with warnings about security vulnerabilities.
Google last month announced its Chromebook laptop, based on its browser and seen as another ambitious attack on Microsoft; it will be made by Samsung and Acer, companies that previously made computers running Microsoft’s software.
Unlike most computers, the Chromebook has almost no capacity to store and hosts most data online in a “cloud”. Bak said: “The Chromebook is really important because it tries to simplify the machine – it is basically no maintenance, which means you can cut the price. If all you are doing is using a browser it’s a fantastic tool.”

Dropbox, Sugarsync and Zumodrive are some of the great online storage services that you can use to store, sync and access your files right from your desktop. However, they only offer a meagre free storage space (less than 5GB) that may not even be enough to backup your MP3 files. On the other hand, Windows Live Skydriveprovides a whopping 25GB of online storage space, much more than the storage space of some of the 1st generation netbook and it is even enough to install a whole operating system on it. As good as it seems, there is one limitation. Skydrive is purely web based and does not provide any desktop-based application for you to sync your computer data with the cloud.
If you are looking to access your Skydrive account from your desktop, Gladinet is the application for you.
Gladinet Cloud Desktop is an application that allows you to mount cloud storage services as local folders and integrates online applications with the local desktop. It supports services such as Amazon S3, Google docs, Picasa, Adrive, and of course Skydrive.
Download Gladinet Starter edition (FREE)
Start the installer. At the end of the installation, it will prompt you to do some initial configuration.
- Select a drive letter for Gladinet to mount to. Make sure that the drive letter does not conflict with any existing drive. Click OK to continue.
- In the next window, click on the Mount Disk Storage
- Under the service provider, select Windows Live Skydrive from the dropdown bar. Of course, if you are using other storage services, you can also configure them the same way here
- Enter your login credential
- You can now access your Skydrive right from the desktop
The advantage of using Gladinet is that it mount the online storage as a network drive in your system (and it does not do a sync), so even if you computer has less than 25GB of space, you can still mount it and access all your data (you will need an Internet connection though). In addition, the ability to mount several online storage services mean that you won’t ever face the problem of insufficient storage space again.
Gladinet comes with a Starter edition (free), Professional edition ($29.99) and a Premium edition that is due to be released soon. Personally, I have found that the Starter edition contains features more than I ever need and is sufficient for me. However, if you require more features, you can always upgrade to the Professional edition easily.
