The New Xbox One Announced, Recreated Console And Game Controller Unveiled

Microsoft has officially introduced its next-generation Xbox console, obviously not the Xbox 720, Infinity or fusion, but announced as Xbox One. Microsoft's big Xbox Reveal event is finally here, and Don Mattrick took the stage to announce Redmond company's next-gen console: the Xbox One.

After months of speculations, Microsoft has finally revealed its redesigned consoles and game controller along with the Xbox One announcement. Laden in a glossy, black finish, Microsoft has really placed its design game with this one, and with a real focus on software innovation and interactive applications.
Microsoft called its new system as an "all in one system" for games, entertainment, and television and the general user experience with the Xbox One looks enthralling at first glance.

Microsoft's Xbox One will also support Ultra HD 4K gaming and certainly the new console is described as an amalgam of the traditional gaming portal and the modern set-top box. After a numerous rumors surrounding what the console would actually be called, it was fair to see such monikers as "Xbox 720" and "Xbox Infinity, Xbox 8, Fusion and Loop" never bore fruit.

Microsoft's accent on molding the entire entertainment experience into a singular entity is big, and lies the rationale behind the name. Recreated, and the company wants the Xbox One to replace your DVD / Blu-ray player, your preexisting console, your set-top box and any gadget that to do so.

Voice Recognition software in Windows OS is also integrated on the new Xbox One, that allows you to control almost every aspect of the Xbox console. One of which can flit between your apps and live TV stream, thanks to the new Instant Switching, and with an even deeper emphasis on Kinect than ever before, the appeal of the Xbox One cannot be amplified.

The system includes 8GB of RAM, an 8-Core CPU, a 500GB hard drive, a Blue-ray drive, HDMI in and out ports, USB 3.0, 802.11n wireless, and on. Xbox One also includes a new version of the Kinect sensor and the console will not every time require an internet connection.

Different apps/elements can run side-by-side, allowing users to, say, browse the Web on IE while watching a downloaded video, and in my thought, Microsoft has really presented the gaming and entertainment world with something to consider. SmartTV technology?
Finally, console and Kinect hardware gets a complete new look, like the game controller with redesigned d-pad. It also ends the need for the system’s long-running codename, Durango.

How To Backup SMS Text Messages On iPhone And Export To PDF, HTML Or MS Excel

 Being an iPhone user many have a doubt about restoring their conversations. Unlike emails which are stored on the cloud, SMS's are saved on your smartphone and in the time being anything happens to your phone, you'll never see your SMS text messages ever again. Reason behind this is, there are certain limitations to Apple's closed iOS ecosystem that makes it a real pain to deal with at times, and not being able to do much about your SMS/iMessage conversations is one of them. But with Android, iPhone's major rival, you get tons of solutions for backing up and retrieving your SMS conversations from the device and keep them safe on your computer. However, with iOS, you aren't so lucky enough. Because, Apple never allow apps or people to play around with such sensitive data recovery in the name of security. Nevertheless, there are techies at work and found one guide, on how to backup iPhone SMS conversations to your PC and then retrieve them for later reading and safe keeping.

Today, we'll show you how you can safely backup data on your iPhone and find the special file where all your iPhone's SMS data is stored.

The whole process relies on creating an iTunes backup and then extracting the SMS database within the backup files, later exporting them to a readable format using a third-party compatible applications. Check this on how you'd do it.

 It might also possible to backup your iPhone SMS with iCloud, but doing so will never save the file you need to extract, on your computer.

Step 1: First of all, you need to backup your iPhone to your computer. Generally, an automatic backup would be created as soon as you connect or Sync your device with iTunes, but if you're saving data to iCloud and not to the local computer, you can either change the settings altogether in iTunes, or use the Back Up Now button (image below) to create a one-time backup on your computer without changing the iCloud backup settings. Or change the setup to backup iPhone data to "This Computer" and press the Back Up Now button. Once the backup is complete, you may proceed.
Step 2: Now, you need to locate the iPhone SMS backup files on your computer's hrad drive. The path would be different, depending on the type of the operating system. iTunes stores the SMS data in a backup in this file in a long encrypted file name, as shown in the screenshot below. The location of this file would be sa follows:

* Windows XP: OS hard drive C:\Documents and Settings > [your username] > Application Data > Apple Computer > MobileSync > Backup, assuming that Windows OS is installed in C: drive.

* Windows 7 or 8: C:\Users > [your username] > AppData > Roaming > Apple Computer > MobileSync > Backup
* On OS X, the backup file is located at User> Library > Application Support > MobileSync > Backup

Step 3: Copy the SMS database file to safe location, and there you have your backup stored and secure.
Finally, this step is purely required, to find a way to decrypt the message data contained within for which there are best apps and online serives that you may turn to. With (recommended), which requires you to provide your extracted SMS database file, and web app will let you export the readable text messages as HTML, MS Excel or PDF formats. Once the file has been uploaded and exported, you will be able to view all the SMS’s you sent. I bet, most other online services that provide such functionality, this one better works.
