Apple Bakal Memperkenalkan iPad Baru

Khabar-khabar angin di Internet mengatakan Apple akan melancarkan iPad baru pada 7 Mac nanti. Hari tersebut adalah jatuh pada hari Rabu, iaitu hari yang sama Apple memperkenalkan iPad 2 pada tahun 2011, malah Apple juga melancarkan iPad pertamanya pada hari Rabu 27 Januari 2010. Tarikh itu juga kena dengan ura-ura yang mengatakan Apple akan lancarkan tablet baru itu pada minggu pertama bulan Mac.

Ipad
Ipad-rumors
Kebanyakan pakar percaya iPad 3 akan didatangkan dengan ciri-ciri skrin resolusi tinggi (Retina) dan pemproses yang lebih laju (mungkin pemproses quad-core pertama Apple), serta juga penambahan memori dalaman. Tablet itu juga mungkin akan dipasarkan dengan harga bermula dari US$499 (RM1,515) dan ke atas. Mengikut ramalan oleh penganalis Wall Street, iPad 3 dijangka akan melonjakkan jualan tablet Apple kepada 11.3 juta untuk suku pertama, iaitu sehingga 140% daripada 4.7 juta unit yang syarikat itu jual dalam tempoh yang sama tahun lalu

What to expect in Apple's new iPad 

 

Apple perkenal tablet iPad  lebih murah?

TAIPEI 2 Mac - Apple Inc. dilapor bakal memperkenalkan komputer tablet iPad 2 yang lebih murah serta dua lagi model iPad 3 dalam satu majlis pelancaran pada minggu depan, jelas laman berita teknologi Taiwan.

Laman web DigiTimes yang beribu pejabat di Taiwan memetik satu sumber pembekal gajet itu sebagai berkata, Apple akan melancarkan dua model iPad 3 yang menawarkan kapasiti 16 gigabit (GB) dan 32 GB serta model iPad 2 dengan kapasiti 8 GB.

"Selain produk iPad 3, Apple juga akan memperkenalkan gajet iPad 2 kapasiti 8 GB dengan membenarkan tablet komputer peribadi (PC) itu menampung segmen berbeza dan melindunginya daripada tablet PC lain yang berasaskan program Windows 8," kata DigiTimes.

Jelas DigiTimes, dengan tempahan yang semakin banyak diterima, pengedaran iPad 3 pada suku pertama tahun ini dijangka meningkat dua kali ganda daripada anggaran asal.

Model iPad 3 yang akan dikeluarkan dijangka mempunyai panel skrin sebesar 9.7 inci definisi tinggi sepenuhnya QXGA dengan resolusi 2048x1536 (264dpi) serta dua lampu LED sebagai cahaya latar tablet tersebut.

Sementara itu, satu artikel berasingan di laman CNET menyatakan, gajet iPad 2 itu merupakan antara usaha Apple untuk mencabar tablet alternatif lain yang lebih murah dan popular seperti Amazon Kindle Fire atau Barnes & Noble Nook.

Katanya, Apple telah mengikut strategi sama pada tahun lalu apabila mereka mengeluarkan telefon pintar model iPhone 4S yang menawarkan kapasiti 8 GB pada harga AS$99 (RM296) dengan perjanjian selama dua tahun.

Telefon pintar iPhone 4 kapasiti 16 GB dan 32 GB dijual pada harga AS$199 (RM596) sebelum pengumuman itu dibuat.

"Dengan beberapa cabaran daripada tablet alternatif di pasaran, Apple terpaksa menawarkan iPad yang lebih murah kepada pembelinya.

"Jika syarikat itu mengikut model iPhone, mereka akan menawarkan gajet iPad 3 pada harga penuh dan gajet iPad 2 pada harga diskaun," ujarnya. - AGENSI

Use Facebook in varsities

201202223-usefacebookinvarsities

Social networking sites such as Facebook have become an integral tool in institutions of higher learning.

NST 23 February 2012, KUALA LUMPUR: Higher Education Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Khaled Nordin has welcomed the trend of institutions of higher learning using social networks such as Facebook and Twitter for educational purposes.

 

"I believe that higher education should grow along with the latest developments in information technology in order to stay current with students. Social networks get the message across effectively and that is what matters most.

"Students usually respond faster to Facebook threads when compared with university portals. Hence, it is a good move."  

Khaled said institutions of higher learning  should look into using more interactive teaching methods, adding that communicating via social networks was a good start.

Universiti Sains Malaysia Associate Professor Mohd Kamarul Kabilan said the use of social media for educational purposes inculcated a more positive attitude towards learning.

He said his research  showed that 67.9 per cent of the students  interviewed said  they had gained confidence when communicating with their classmates as well as   their lecturers.

Kamarul said the question of whether the tool was useful or not depended on the lecturers and   students.

"Facebook's features such as the 'wall',  'notes'  and  'video uploads'  can be used for learning in the form of exchanging and sharing of ideas, thinking critically and encouraging collaboration."

International Islamic University Malaysia macroeconomics lecturer Riasat Amin said communicating with his students through the Internet had  a profound impact on the dynamics of his classroom.

"Social networks have definitely helped bridge the gap we had with my students. We connect better in class now."

 

Riasat explained that online platforms had made the teaching and learning process more interactive as students who were too shy to raise questions during class could express themselves online.

A survey conducted by Taylor's School of Communication found that students tend to respond better through Facebook compared with university online portals.

"When they use student portals, they feel like it is work.

"But communication through social media is a more relaxed process," said Taylor's Communication and Media Management programme director Catherine Lee Cheng Kiat.

She said 99 per cent of her students had Facebook accounts, hence the possibility of students being left out of online discussions was rare.

Students, in turn, have responded positively to this new method spearheaded by their lecturers.

Communications student Hoh May Kay, 22, said social networks had made it more convenient for her to follow course announcements and assignment updates.

She said she preferred chatting with her lecturers through Facebook as she could get an immediate response from them.

Mechanical engineering student Mohd Akram Mohd Yusof, 21, said social media could become an important tool for teachers to reach out to unresponsive students.

"We spend half our time on the Internet and by engaging students here, lecturers get to reach out to those who are beyond the barrier." By Nicholas Cheng and Kanyakumari Damodaran
