How To Unlock A Forgotten Apple iPod Touch Pin Code

While unlocking a forgotten passcode on basic Apple iPod is not very hard neither is the resetting of volume lock as shared earlier, you might be unlucky if you have a non-jailbroken Apple iPod Touch and does not have the PC you last synced via iTunes with you as the only option to unlock the disabled iPod is to use your original PC with iTunes. The only solution to get rid of this situation is demonstrated ahead.

Disabled Apple iPod Touch After Forgotten Lock PassCode

The only way To Unlock the disabled iPod is to restore it via iTunes which also means you will loose all your data/music on the device. Here is how to go about it :
  • Make your device neter the DFU mode as shown below.

  • Once your device is in DFU mode launch iTunes and it should be detected as "in recovery mode".

  • If you have a .IPSW file ready for your device browse for it using Shift + Click on restore button, if not simply click the restore button and let iTunes download the firmware file.

  • iTunes will now wipe the device and you will have a blank device without the passcode.

Hopefully, the Next Google Nexus Will Look Like This

Google is hard at work with the development and designing of their future Nexus device, but nothing specific has slipped for the time being on how exactly the device will look like. 

Of course, we already learned some details on the hardware specifications of this device, and even heard that it might actually be nothing more than a larger Nexus S, yet we have nothing solid on its outer design. 

Only a concept phone for the time being, but a highly appealing one, we might add, the next-generation Nexus phone from Google might actually look like the handset in the photos to the left.  

Featuring an innovative interface based on the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system flavor, the handset will appeal to users both when it comes to its looks, as well as when its performance capabilities are involved.

The concept device that can be seen in the images attached to this article comes from Ciccarese Design (via), yet it might become the new Google phone some day. 

On the front, one can clearly see the slightly curved touchscreen display, similar to the one present on Nexus S, along with the touch buttons usually found on Android phones, and what could very well be the homescreen of Ice Cream Sandwich. 

Undoubtedly, this concept device easily makes us dream of a Nexus handset that would live up to all expectations that previously leaked details on the Nexus Prime created. 

Just imagine it with a powerful 1.5GHz application processor inside, 1GB of RAM, 16GB or more of internal memory, an 8MP camera on the back, front camera for video calling, NFC, and other high-end features as well, and you'll see what we are talking about.

The future Google Nexus phone should prove appealing in every aspect, just as the Nexus 3 concept device does. Hopefully, Google and its hardware partner that will release the phone will pack at least some of these goodies with it, if not all of them, and will make it at least resemble the Nexus 3 concept phone.

Microsoft Windows 8 Picture Login

Official Microsoft Windows 8 Developer Preview Build is now available for downloading, apart from the major new changes the major-upgrade to Windows operating system has a lot on new smaller features and functionality. One of such cool new edition is the "Picture Login Feature" which allows users to login into their computers without typing any passwords and by simply using a picture of their choice, a video demonstration of this is posted below.

AMD C-50 and Z-01 Windows 8 Boot Performance Compared, Video Included

AMD was present at Microsoft's BUILD conference with a series of tablet designs based on its low-power accelerated processing units, the C-50 and Z-01 to be more precise, which were put in a head-to-head battle to see who can boot up Windows 8 faster.

The two tablets used for this test by the Netbook News website were the Acer Iconia W500, powered by a C-50 APU, and the MSI WindPad W110W that is based on the new AMD Z-01, or Desna, tablet chip.

We have come to know pretty well both of these slates in the last couple of months, but this is the first time we've seen the Metro UI running on them.

The first thing to note when taking a look at the video is just how smoothly these seem to work with Windows 8, the Metro UI responding quite nicely to the limited set of commands they were put through.

As far as boot performance is concerned, the two tablets seem to behave nearly identically, although the Z-01 definitely takes a little more time than the C-50 to reach the home screen. However, this is normal considering Desna wasn't optimized for Windows 8 yet.

The AMD Z-01 APU, or Desna, is a specially developed version of the C-50 that features the same dual 1GHz out-of-order x86 Bobcat cores as its older brother as well as the built-in Radeon HD 6250 graphics core.

However, the APU's TDP was lowered in order to make it better suited for tablet use, and the Z-01 requires 3.1W less than the C-50 to operate (5.9W in comparison with 9W).

Most of the energy savings were achieved by using lower core and north bridge operating voltages as well as a new local hardware thermal control mode that wasn't previously available in AMD's Ontario chips.
