Apple Open Jobs in Indonesia

Whether you are looking for work? What if you work for the best technology companies in the world?

We recently discovered information that Apple is expanding into Indonesia and is currently a job opening for Indonesia. The outstanding job on LinkedIn and Apple's corporate page for positions related to Apple's retail business in Jakarta.

Currently Apple is looking for Human Resource Manager, and now these jobs are very popular on LinkedIn. And if you look at Apple's official careers page for Singapore, also found three open positions in Singapore for 3-6 months before being formally placed in Jakarta.

Apple on a career site, an open vacancy for iPhone Channel Manager, CES (Consumer Electronic Stores) Manager, and Account Manager foriPhone / iPad Carrier in Jakarta. To some extent this is a confirmation of the rumor that we found some time ago about Apple that is working with Indosat for billing App Store using the pulse.

Open positions that are highly oriented to the retailer, and has long been speculation that Apple is bolstering its global expansion, especially to potential markets in Asia Pacific. And even Apple has expressed his concern to the Indonesian market with the support of local smelly stuff in the latest release of iTunes.

This strategic move is interesting, especially if we look at the fact that Indonesia as one of the world's largest mobile market, has the lowest rate to the growth of adoption for IOS devices.

According to the research institute Effective Measure, IOS largest market in Indonesia is only 10% owned by iPad from 10.06%-owned niche market products in Indonesia IOS. In neighboring countries like Thailand, Singapore, Philippines and Malaysia, IOS has a penetration rate of more than 50%.

From the other hand, Apple could have seen the catch compared to competitors such as Android and BlackBerry are first entered in cooperation with the operator to obtain a larger market niche.

Cooperation with the operator is of exceptional importance to Apple, especially to come out with the financing structure for the upper class of Apple product, too high for most mobile consumers in Indonesia.

Let's see which comes first obtain a larger market niche and also memonetize Indonesia mobile market, because whoever it is (Apple / Android / Windows Phone / Blackberry) can change many things in the mobile industry in Indonesia.

In a different topic but related, Steve Wozniak (Apple co-founder) will travel to Jakarta to speak at seminars on creativity and innovation.

Microsoft's mystery Tablet Surface

Microsoft has just announced the presence of homemade tablet Windows 8, the Tablet Surface. However, Microsoft still keep the "innards" of the tablet before it officially on sale.

Of the specifications have been released, the giant software company was still hides some of the specifications. Among other RAM size, camera resolution, screen resolution, Bluetooth connectivity and 4G, accelerometer, light sensor, gyroscope, digital compass or a GPS. So is the price.

Here are 10 things that remains a mystery of the Microsoft Tablet Surface:

1. Price
Microsoft does not explain the price of the newest devices. But reportedly, Surface tablet will have a price that is comparable to tablets or ultrabook. As an illustration, the average tablet typically sells for 500 dollars. While cheap Ultrabook sold for about 800 dollars.

Microsoft released two models of Tablet Surface, namely Windows RT and Windows 8. Microsoft Surface tablets prices are not expected to be far from 400 dollars (for Windows RT) and 1,000 U.S. dollars (for Windows 8).

With these prices, is expected to directly compete with Apple iPad which is still sold from 500 U.S. dollars.

When confirmed, the President Director of Microsoft Indonesia Andreas Diantoro also declined to comment about the price of these devices. He submitted fully to the global Microsoft.

"I do not want to mention the price, especially in the global release schedule as well as Indonesia," he said.

2. Availability in the market
Because it uses Windows 8, the tablet is expected to be released at the official launch of Windows OS 8, scheduled to be launched in October or November.

3. Vendor partners
Until now not known which companies are producing Microsoft Surface. This is different from Apple that has begun a partnership with Samsung.

4. Reaction partner
The introduction of Microsoft Surface tablets are not coincided with the launch of Windows 8 is going to openly satirical partners. That is because the vendor that works with Microsoft's new tablet will release Windows 8, after the OS is officially released.

Registered vendor Hewlett Packard, Dell, Lenovo and even Samsung are also interested in releasing a tablet with Windows 8. However, Microsoft also needs to convince the vendor partners to continue to cooperate, especially for Windows tablet RT.

5. Is able to beat the iPad?
Of course not. Apple is still leading the tablet market share. It is impossible when this tablet will get rid of Microsoft as the manufacturer of Apple tablet with the most sales in the world.

These tablets appear to represent Microsoft's vision for the future of computing. It is also one of Microsoft's long-term effort in making the devices, especially tablets.

6. Is able to compete with Android tablet?
Google may be uneasy at the presence of this Surface tablet. Although many vendors have made a tablet with Android OS, but it turns out these vendors also have not been shown to have significant advantages.

But if Microsoft can provide a special experience for users, especially the experience of wearing the same as using a tablet PC, then it might be able to shift the trend of the Android OS users to switch to Windows 8 tablet.

7. Xbox Component
The tablet is rumored Xbox will get the content, the same as content offered by Xbox to the device with another OS Windows 8. Likewise with technology adaptation SmartGlass.

8. 4G connection

These tablets are not yet clear if the network connection using 3G, 4G or Long Term Evolution (LTE). This could be because Microsoft has yet to get a partner operator.

9. Battery life
Battery life for Windows Surface RT about 31.5 hours. While Surface Windows 8 about 42 hours.

Battery life is nearing the latest iPad approximately 42.5 hours. However, the iPad battery capacity is intended for high-resolution screen that requires a great battery life.

10. Why be in LA?
This device was introduced at Microsoft's activities in Los Angeles. But the public and the media really had to ask why the activity is done in LA.

Even at the last minute before the introduction of the rumored tablet was not clear where the implementation.

Surface, Superhero Tablet from Microsoft

Surface, Superhero Tablet from Microsoft was launched. Microsoft has finally announced a tablet device operating system Windows 8, Monday (6/18/2012), the Los Angeles, United States. Tablet Tablet Surface named it is predicted to challenge Apple's iPad.

To counter Apple's success with iPad, Microsoft started as a manufacturer of tablet itself, as well as create a special operating system Windows 8 tablet, which is named Windows 8 RT.

Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer said the Windows operating system that runs the 8 RT Surface tablet, has the same look with Windows 8 that runs on personal computer (PC).

As is known, the Windows PC operating system is the most widely used in the world. Microsoft wanted to bring the same experience when users run Windows 8 on the tablet and the PC and laptop computers.

According to analyst Sarah Rotman Epps from Forrester research firm, he did not see that Surface will kill the iPad. "I do not see the Surface as an iPad killer. But Surface has a lot of potential," he said.

He added that the announcement yesterday in Microsoft berfokusi on hardware innovation, but do not talk about service. "Microsoft is unique assets makes Surface a great product," added Sarah.

Surface will slide in two versions and is available in a choice of internal memory capacity. First, the ARM processor architecture, the so-called lighter and thinner. Surface with ARM processors come with internal memory capacity of 32GB and 64GB. Will slide into the market first, scheduled for the Christmas holiday season this year.

The second version, Tablet Surface with Intel architecture processor. Tablet version of this form is heavier and thicker, but equipped with a larger internal memory capacity, the 64GB and 128GB. The plan, Surface with Intel Ivy Bridge will be available three months after its launch Surface ARM version.

To attack the weaknesses of the other Apple, Microsoft Surface provide a cover that serves as a cover as well as keyboard (keyboard). Not only that, there is also available touchpad to navigate with a finger, just like when you use a laptop.

Microsoft has yet to give pricing details Surface.Namun tablet version of the ARM Surface prices will be competitive with the popular portable computer ultrabook Intel.

AndroMax, CDMA with Android 'Ice Cream'

AndroMax, CDMA with Android 'Ice Cream', now is available. Smartfren increasingly keen to peddle his own brand mobile phones. This new champ is AndroMax CDMA operator that has been embedded with the operating system Android 4.0 aka Ice Cream Sandwich.

The device is actually made by Hisense and positioned to compete in the lower middle class. Automatic price is also priced quite cheap, but its performance does not mean cheap.


AndroMax carries a fairly ergonomic design. He was wrapped with a capacitive touch screen that is multitouch response.

When tested, the sweep hand is so easily recognizable and goes at will. As a result, this screen can be relied upon for navigational matters. Including when asked to type through the virtual keyboard, easy and responsive.

It's just the screen that carried AndroMax not too big, and uses only 3.5 inch TFT LED type, HVGA (480x320). In fact, if equipped with a larger screen, the user must have experience with the touch screen can be more nampol.

Turning to the back, there is the plastic casing that has a texture. This is actually a plus, because it so make the handle more mantab and not slippery.

At the rear is also a place to bury a 3-megapixel camera is powered. The camera in this device is just one, not available at the front of the camera.

As for the affairs there are two physical buttons are mounted. On the left for the on-off and lock, while in the kana for the volume. At the bottom of the screen there are touch keys for home, back, and search.


With the price of USD 1.2 million for the official price and $ 880 thousand for the promotion, you certainly can not expect the ability AndroMax class III or HTC Galaxy S One X. But when juxtaposed with the Galaxy Pocket or LG L3, may still be on my level.

Display shown AndroMax admittedly not too sharp, but when invited to watch the video a heavy, mobile phone with a 800 MHz processor is able to eat it quite fluently.

Back to the camera. Fairly decent shots with the power of 3 megapixels. Including for the affairs of video recording.

The special performance is considered sufficient in terms of OS, which has been equipped with Android 4.0. Of course it is still rarely seen in Indonesia CDMA handset that carries the OS 'ice cream'.

The resulting user interface like a premium phone that carries the same OS. But it must be recognized if the picture is less sharp beam. Fortunately this can be covered with a smooth touch-screen capabilities while taking surfing fingers.

Other more value in terms of connectivity. AndroMax comes with the CDMA 2000 1x EVDO Rev A, where the connection is on paper ciamik enough to bring the user is surfing.

Even so, still, it is still dependent on network conditions Smartfren around you. If that is capable of this will be very significant, but otherwise it remains useless.

Smartfren himself had proclaimed that the active center service sales data. So they should really think about the quality of service will be used by the data user to surf.

In conclusion, a fairly decent AndroMax ogled for smart phone users in the medium segment down. Moreover, it costs less than $ 1 million when the promotion, it was already equipped with the Android OS Ice Cream Sandwich. The performance is fairly decent.

In the benchmark calculations performed, recorded AndroMax value when using the application Quadrant 1187. While the AnTuTu carve score 2429.

Curve 9220 does not include Mobile Hotspot. BlackBerry Tag to share content and data with the power of NFC technology was not there. WiFi Calling is also not supported here. Similarly with discount offers via BlackBerry Maps.

However, RIM does need to move fast or get run over. They still have great power, speed and security such as sending email through RIM's internal data center. And messaging services BlackBerry Messenger (BBM).

"Email on the phone the other flying at random on the internet, only God knows. What does RIM from the beginning was to build a reliable network security," said Gwennap.

In the construction sector cell phone, BlackBerry is still winning in the keyboard. "RIM is still the best keyboard in the business smoothly. BlackBerry in general have long-lasting batteries," said Sascha from PCMag Reluctant.

However, RIM still has not been able to meet consumers' desire for a touch screen phone. "Consumers today seem to want a large screen and full-color, which always made RIM badly," added the Reluctant.

Advantages Working at Google

Those selected to work at Google can be successful. First, they never had to join the great people in the world of the internet giant that is also touted as a dream.

Secondly, after they were given a lot of Google's knowledge and experience to apply, though no longer working at Google. The company even has a line of 'unwritten rules' that have to do all of their employees before leaving Google.

HTC One X Review

HTC X One, put forward the unmatched ability of the camera, as well as kitchen runway that claimed the fastest in its class. Multimedia features on this phone is also fairly interesting with the sound setup ala Dr Dre by Beats Audio.

Yes, HTC claims it could have been so. The following Media Kita have prepared a review.

Teasing Design

Design issues are absolutely depends on your taste, but according to Media Kita HTC One X is one of the phones with a display that is quite alluring. The combination of the colors look right, the button layout and size that was proportional.

Big screen with 4.7-inch size makes it difficult not grasped, coupled with a very light weight. One body HTC X is made slightly curved, with the volume buttons on the right and the micro USB port on the left.

At the top there is a water-resistant speakers, 1.3 MP camera, power button, and a hole 3.5 mm jack for listening to audio through the headset. Then there are behind the 8 MP camera lens protrudes to the outside, a unit of LED lights to take photos in the dark, external speakers, and a slot for a micro SIM card.

In the material is nothing special about this phone. The entire body is made of plastic, but still impressed because of the premium and wear sturdy unibody form factor.

Matter of taste when used, although this is still great but the phone can be operated easily. The screen with almost no edge to make this phone quite comfortably held in one fist. But still need a bit of adaptation before the user can type smoothly with just one hand.

One X providing 3 HTC touch panel for navigation. From the left there is a Back button, and then Home, then a button to bring up a list of recently opened applications. Very different from the previous HTC Android phones that always comes with 4 buttons with different functions.

Expansion Beats Audio

Like the previous HTC phones on board, at the One X also embedded voice suits the style of Dr. Dre, but this time slightly expanded functionality Beats Audio.

There are some differences than ever before. For example, it beats the sound effects can be used on all earphones, not exclusive only to the output of Dr. Dre.

Then the sound effects can also be obtained when the user plug in to external speakers, then this feature can also be active when you were watching a movie.

HTC itself had claimed that the Beats sound effects embedded in the smartphone is a combination of chipset with software. But the claim is now broken, when the effects can be inserted into another phone.

HTC beats in no more than an equalizer matched with Dr Dre headphones sound character. Thus, the feature is indeed only be maximized when used together.

So what if paired with another earphone or external speakers? Character of the Beats is likely hardware equalizer with bass domination. So for the love songs jedag jedug hear this effect must be highly favored, it is different for those who prefer the sound detailed and crisp.

Unfortunately, the Beats and the music player application congenital One X does not support music format Free Lossless Audio Codec (FLAC). Though this format is used more audio lovers are concerned with the quality of sound.

Stunning camera capabilities

The camera is a feature-‘favored’ at One HTC X. Even claimed this phone is a smartphone with the best camera to outperform the iPhone 4S, both in quality and capability of capturing images.

Of technical data can be seen that the lens is used by 8 MP with the ability to capture images at a resolution of 3264 x 2448 pixels. Among other enhancements, touch focus, face and smile detection, and take pictures simultaneously without stopping. This is rarely found in other phones.

In this mobile phone users can be snapped without stopping simply by holding down the picture taker, then the user can choose which of the best photos you want to keep. Fun is not it? It reminded Burts mode which usually is in top class digital cameras.

When tested, the camera is pretty impressive. Especially beginning with the lens aperture F2.0. This feature will be felt when the user wants to snap in low light conditions.

Because it can absorb more light from the phone in its class, then the resulting picture look better too. Even very good for a camera phone, with an average size of 2 MB per photo in JPEG format.

Beyond quality, other features was carried no less compelling. For example, the ability to record HD video 1920 X 1080 pixels and takes 3264 x 2448 pixel images at the same time. Wow, as if in disbelief, but this feature is indeed real.

Fun again, the camera X One can focus instantly when the camera application is opened. But obstacles arise when trying to take close-up photographs, macro alias. In the camera automatically setting the focus is very difficult, so it should be moved to a close-up mode to get more leverage.

Talk about shooting mode, the phone there are several types that can be used, Panorama, HDR, Portrait, Landscape, Close up, Low Light, as well as other modes. The process of taking pictures in all modes is also very fast without any lag symptoms at all.

HTC One X or Galaxy S III, which one???

Homeland gadget enthusiast who wants to woo upscale may be Android phones had to wonder, which is better between the HTC One X or Galaxy S III. Both also have their respective advantages are difficult to surpass.

One either X or Galaxy S III is the best product of the two vendors are the best Android manufacturers. No wonder if they both have very loyal users.

One X is present in HTC in May 2012 and then, faster than the new Galaxy S III went on sale last week. This of course has a distinct advantage for a vendor HTC launched the first mobile quad core in Indonesia.

But does that mean HTC One X will be more in demand than the Galaxy S III? Not guarantee it, because so many variables that affect whether or not selling a product.

Well, as a reference, Media Kita are going a little compare some excellent features that exist in the Galaxy One X and S III. What are they?

Just Slender Body
About the design, it is absolutely a matter of taste and the results can vary. But no doubt these two phones on board has been able to attract at first sight.

Galaxy S III and X One brought together a solid plastic material polycarbote. The difference is, mobile phones made by HTC made the unibody package, so it looks more sturdy and solid.
While the Galaxy S III, the materials used are the same, but the back cover feels very thin. Only about as thick as two sheets of HVS, so it seemed fragile when removed. But when the phone is held in the hand feels mantab.

Media Kita compared coincidence that both of them are white. But Samsung chose the easy shiny white scar on his hands and smooth, while the HTC wearing a pretty white ivory sticks in hand.

About the weight and dimensions of the latter is also not far adrift. One 4.7-inch X using the screen, while the Galaxy S III is slightly larger by 4.8 inches. Automatic, the phone made by HTC is a little lighter than a Samsung. But only 3 grams so not too pronounced.

Even so about the view angle, aka the point of view. One X screen has a wider angle. So the screen is still pretty sight to a certain angle without reducing quality.

Duel 8 MP Camera
Incidentally both have the same great camera, the same 8 MP, so it is fair to be matched.

Galaxy S III shots outdoors is very good. The color is sharp, with decent lighting combination of raised thumbs. But while in the room One X is appropriate because it has superior aperture F2.0 lens, so it can absorb more light.

Both cameras can also direct the focus quickly, and both have supported the touch focus. And when pressed 'shutter button', each captured image was stored in a flash.

Well, armed with a camera other than a very good quality, they are also equipped with a myriad of features are good. Start of the burst mode, panorama, HDR, macro, and others.

But it must be admitted that the burst mode X One more comfortable than the Galaxy S III. To use the user simply pressing the shutter button for as long as desired, but if the Galaxy S III process is a bit complicated.

Users must first activate the burst mode on the application used, then the new camera can be used to quickly snap. But that was only limited to 20 frames.

But when it comes to macros, aka take close-up photographs, X One must bow the knee before the Galaxy S III.

Samsung-made phone that is capable of capturing images up to a distance that is very close, the detail was good enough for the size of the phone. Unlike the One X is very difficult to focus when targeting objects at close range. And when taken of the results are erratic.

Processor 4 'Brain' Powerful
Indeed, both are armed by the processor core 4 which is very powerful. But HTC chose Nvidia Tegra 3, and Samsung use a homemade chip Exynos 4212 Quad. How it performs in comparison?

The resulting overall energy level Exynos 4212 Quad on Tegra 3 is faster 100 MHz. These results are not absolute and depends on each application penujian.

In the benchmark application Quadrant for example, the Galaxy managed to outperform the S III One X with a score that far adrift. While in AnTuTu and NenaMark 2 results were also similar, Galaxy S III proved superior.

Even so Nvidia Tegra 3 still offers a number of advantages, upamanya processors 'reserve' that makes it more power efficient. Not to mention the support of dozens of games that can be downloaded on the Tegra Zone.

Much-Most Features

Meanwhile HTC have Beats Audio is held. Here Beats functions can be activated on all types of headset, and with these features mengatifkan then heard the sound track that will be felt more 'kick'.

So, Better Where?

Which is better is difficult to determine. Galaxy S III which has many outstanding features and power, and priced around $ 7 million. While HTC One X is no less sophisticated the most expensive sold Rp 6.6 million.

Both also have unique characteristics, so the choice is still falling under each of the needs of prospective users. Want a great power pnya, abundant features, may be meilirk Samsung Galaxy S III.
