Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge Announced – First Peek At the Specs and Features

Samsung Galaxy S5 was a hit in the Android world. Now Samsung has announced two of its new phones which are Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge. Galaxy S6 is far better in design than all its predecessors.

This gorgeous smartphone is made of eye-catching fusion of metal and glass. It has a much better feel than the other smartphones of its range. It’s quite compact and can easily fit in your hand. Due to its new premium design, the removable battery option is no more available. It also lacks micro SD slot. The curved sides make the phone look more attractive. The first advantage of the curved edge is that you can assign five different colors to your favorite contacts. When the face is upside down, you would easily know who is calling simply by seeing the color on the edge of the phone. The edge also lets you see notifications, texts and calls without even opening the phone cover.

Galaxy 6 has a beautiful 5.1 inches Super AMOLED display. It has a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels which makes the colors of the phone very striking. The phone is quite fast due to its Exynos 7420 processor and 3GB RAM. It is available in 3 different versions 32, 64 and 128 GB according to its storage capability. It has a great 16 MP rear camera with OIS and an excellent 5 MP front camera with 90 degree wide angle lens which is great for taking selfies. Both S6 and S6 Edge have almost the same specs other than the battery and the edge option.

The other features include WiFi connectivity, Bluetooth 4.1, NFC, GPS and GLONASS. It also offers LTE cat 6 300/50. It comes with WPC and PMA wireless charging system due to which it could be charged really fast. S6 has a battery of 2,550 mAh, whereas S6 Edge has a battery of 2,600 mAh. The phone can be fully charged in 80 minutes. It runs on Android 5.0 Lollipop. It is available in four striking colors; black, white, gold and blue.

Samsung-Galaxy-6

So will the S6 perform well on release? It looks set to and the only real concern is the Apple Watch taking some of the limelight away</a>.

The new S6 phones have many handy camera features like the HDR mode. It has a new tracking autofocus feature which tracks moving objects in a picture. If you double tap the camera, it would launch the camera in just 0.7 seconds. Both the models offer IR Detect White Balance and Smart Optical Image Stabilization which helps in taking wonderful quality of pictures.

Useful Pieces of Technology to Help You Keep Track Of Your Personal Finances

Making money is difficult, but spending it is often far too easy–and that’s not a good thing. Considering how important money is in the world that we live in, it’s simply unwise to blow it recklessly on things that aren’t absolute necessities. Unfortunately, many people have trouble with managing their personal finances because they don’t pay attention to details. Keeping track of this and that here and there is too much work for some, so it’s worth looking at this list of convenient financial technologies to keep our bank accounts in the positive.

Check.me

This useful app helps users keep track of their payments. While it’s not the most comprehensive money management tool out there, Check.me works great as a constant reminder of the bills that you have to pay in the near future and offers suggestions for how you can do so. Basically, the app will keep you updated on what needs to be paid, whether it’s a credit card, utility bill, or charity donation, and gives you ways to fix the problem as soon as possible if you’re late on payments. As a free app, Check.me is definitely worth checking out, and it is available online or as a download for iOS and Android.

Mint.com

Mint.com is an awesome personal finance site, and there is also a free smartphone app that you can download for major operating systems. This money management software is perfect for those who want to monitor their spending down to the smallest detail because it links all your bank accounts–whether it be checking, savings, credit card, investment, retirement, or others–to provide you with real-time statistics on your spending habits. You’ll be able to view account balances along with spending numbers that are separated into different categories such as dining expenses, mortgage/rent, or recreational expenses. No matter how you choose to burn through your earnings, Mint will show you exactly how you did it.

Doxo

By connecting to all your service providers, Doxo displays all your bills on a single screen and makes checking up on your financial responsibilities quick and painless. This app is also free to download, so don’t hesitate to add it to your arsenal of management tools.

YNAB

YNAB is an acronym for You Need A Budget, and it’s an innovative app that aims to teach users, using videos and tutorials, why they need to have a budget. Although YNAB will allow you to manage all of your finances, there is no syncing option to connect to your accounts, which means that you’re required to enter everything into the program yourself. This aspect is a bit disappointing, but the focus of YNAB is to inform people of budgeting tips and tricks. TopTenReviews.com rated the app as the third best personal finance software for the coming year, even with its price tag of $60.

YNAB

Gathering receipts isn’t the most efficient way to record your spending. Its 2014, so you should be taking advantage of advanced software and hardware to aid you with managing your personal finances. You won’t even need to spend a penny in order to obtain some of the most effective budgeting software available. Talk about a bargain.

iPhone App Reviews – Top 5 iPhone Apps of 2013

top 5 iphone apps

There are more than one million apps on the App Store. There is an app for everything these days, literally. The common perception is that the gaming apps are the most popular ones. But that is not necessarily the case. You’ll be surprised to see how many non-gaming apps are frequently used by people.

To get the most out of some of these apps you’ll need a fairly powerful device. As iPhone is sort of a given, I would like to provide an Android alternate for Android users.  Therefore, look no further than the Nexus 5 which performed extremely on the GFXbench tests earlier in the year and considering its affordable price point, it is ideal for both casual and hardcore mobile phone gamers.

Top 5 iPhone Apps of 2013

Here we go, here are the top five:

Afterlight

Afterlight is a photo editing app that allows the iPhone users to crop, rotate and edit photos. There is an advance set of tools such as filters, gradients, color shades, bordering and texturing etc. The good thing about this app is that it can turn an ordinary photo into an artistic one. You can get this amazing app just for 99 cents.

afterlight app

Duolingo

Duolingo was recently nominated as “app of the year” by Apple. It is a teaching app that allows users to learn new languages. At the moment there are five languages it can teach: German, Spanish, French, Italian and Portuguese. There is both verbal and visual assistance provided to the users. And remarkably enough, this app is free!

duolingo app

Temple Run 2

You probably knew that this app would make the list. Even though it is a free app, it is the most widely played iPhone game in the world. Great graphics, adrenaline rush, skill, hand-eye coordination – this game will push your limits. Based on the sample principle of collecting coins and trying not to fall or get hit by objects, this game has been treating iPhone and Android users the day it came out.

temple run 2

Venmo

Venmo is another creative app that addresses a very common problem: retrieval of small loans you give to your friends. Don’t worry about that $5 you lent! This app enables users to connect their checking account with the app and pay money with a click or a ‘touch’ would be more appropriate. The best part is that there is no processing fee for Venmo, the transactions are completely free! The app is not only about payments, one can also use it for “recovery”. The app sends reminders to your friends, family and coworkers to send your money. And hold onto your hats: Venmo is a free app.

venmo app

ThirdLove

ThirdLove is another example like Venmo of a small technology solving a real life issue. When ordering clothes online, there is always a threat that the clothes won’t fit. This is lingerie making company’s app that allows woman to send pictures so the appropriate bra-size can be determined. It is another useful app that is free. However, since the company that owns the app is an online store, they make money when you purchase anything from them.

How to Make Money off Your Old Technology

make money with technology

If you’re like most people, you probably have a pile of old electronics lying around your home. This includes older TVs, cell phones, computers, entertainment systems, and even appliances that you don’t use anymore. Instead of leaving these things to sit in your basement collecting dust, however, why don’t you turn them into cash? Try these suggestions to turn your old electronics into cash.

1. Pawn shop

A lot of pawn shops give cash for a wide variety of electronics. In addition to the car stereos and laptops that everyone knows about, according to a shop that does gold buying in Columbus, these shops are also willing to buy kids’ toys, video games, and even a lot of professional equipment. You’ll clean out your house and make some money.

2. Yard sale

If you have a lot of smaller items and/or children’s items, consider a yard sale. While they might be a lot of work to put together, you could potentially make hundreds of dollars. While you’re setting up, include a lot of other items from your house that you just want to get rid of. Don’t worry about anything being too old; you’ll be shocked at what people will buy. If you don’t think you have enough stuff to attract a crowd, ask your neighbors if they would be willing to hold one with you and split the advertising costs.

make money with technology

3. Donation

There are a lot of charities that are always looking for donations of cell phones, appliances, and professional equipment. If you’re not using your stuff, give it to someone who can use it. You’ll help them and be able to write off the cost of the items on your taxes.

make money with technology

4. Recycle

Even if you can’t sell your old electronics to anyone, you might be able to earn some money by selling them to a recycling service. These services dismantle the devices and separate them into their individual components. From there, they can sell the pieces that people still want and get money for the rest by selling pieces with heavy, precious, and rare earth metals. While you might find people who do this via word of mouth, also check with a few local pawn shops that buy gold and silver. Because many electronics contain these elements, many of these dealers are willing to buy or know someone who will.

Apple iPad Repair – Top 5 iPad Problems

Apple iPad Repair

Over 100 million iPads have been sold worldwide, but this doesn’t mean they don’t come without any flaws. Apple iPad repair is something many tablet owners still have to deal with. The iPad is Apple’s flagship tablet and the fourth generation came out at the end of 2012, alongside the iPad Mini. They are popular among adults, elderly people, and children alike and are now even used widely in the classroom. Generally, the iPad is a reliable and user-friendly tablet that has a lot to offer, but if you have one it might be useful to read up on easy ways to repair yours if it ever goes ‘belly-up’.

So, we’re giving you some tips on how to go about fixing the most frequent and annoying problems you may happen to encounter with your iPad.

WiFi / Internet Problems

A problem with internet connectivity seems to be the most popular and frequently talked about issue with the iPad, but there are some simple solutions to try if yours is playing up. If you’ve seen the TV comedy ‘The IT Crowd’, then you may snigger at this suggestion, but simply turning the tablet off and on again as a troubleshooting method does often work. Turn the router off and back on whilst you do the same to your iPad; this refreshes everything and may prompt your Wi-Fi to wake up. You should also check the basics: got to Settings > Wi-Fi on the iPad and make sure that it is turned on.

Apple iPad Repair

Ensure that you have the latest iOS software by going to Settings > General > Software Update. Before you update the software, make sure you plug your iPad into the power adapter. You can update the older version of iPads with iTunes. You will see the option ‘Check for Update’ on the Summary tab.

Frozen Screen

Is your screen lagging? Frozen? Or generally not being its speedy self?

When your iPad refuses to respond to your touch, the most likely reason is a fault of a specific app. If it happens regularly, make a note of which apps you have running at the time and uninstall one at a time to see if it fixes the problem. However, you may not want to do this if the app is one that you use often.

Apple iPad Repair

So to reset the iPad, press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for at least 10 seconds, until the Apple logo appears. If the problem persists, try consulting an Apple iPad repair technician or head to the Apple store. You might be surprised to find out how cheap iPad repair can be.

Running Slowly

Giving a similar experience to that offered by the frozen screen, your iPad might be feeling a little ‘bogged down’ and thus be working slowly. This can be irritating when you’re used to a super-quick tablet and, is most likely to occur when you’re in a hurry.

Make sure your iPad and iTunes are both up-to-date and are running on the latest software as this can often be the root cause of many problems with Apple iPad repair.

iTunes Doesn’t Recognize the iPad

Again, a main issue here often lies with outdated software, and in particular you should make sure that you have the latest version of iTunes.

Firstly, begin by restarting your iPad, then your computer.

Check the USB connections. Try disconnecting and reconnecting the iPad. Whenever possible, always connect iPad to a USB port that is built into the computer instead of the keyboard or an external USB hub.

For Windows users, it may be necessary to completely uninstall iTunes and then re-install the latest version of iTunes. It is not necessary for Mac users to uninstall or re-install iTunes.

iPad Won’t Turn On

If your iPad won’t turn on at all, don’t go straight into meltdown panic mode. It could all be fixed in a matter of minutes.

Apple iPad Repair

You may have to hold two buttons at the same time, namely the Home and the Wake (or) Suspend button. Once you do this, you will see the Apple logo become visible on your screen after pressing the Home and Wake (or) Suspend buttons for about two seconds. And this means your iPad is booting up and should be good to go in a little while.

However, if this doesn’t work you could have a hardware failure on your hands. In this case, your best bet is to take it down to an Apple iPad repair facility and get it checked out by the Apple doctors.

How to Manage the Use of Electronics in Your Family

Use of electronics

It seems like there are more mobile phones being created than people these days, so there are bound to be a few problems that pop up when it comes to how you are going to be able to manage all of the different electronic devices in your family. While most electronic devices come packed with an immense number of positive benefits, there are also some negative aspects of giving a little computer to every single member of the family. Whether you are getting a Blackberry Canada or you are just trying to figure out how many hours of video games your children are going to play per day, it is important to remember that electronics are a part of our daily lives at this point. Let’s take a look at how you can manage the electronics owned by the people in your household.

Use of electronics

Let the Kids Use the Computer

The first thing you should look at when it comes to what your children should be allowed to do is the computer. While there are a lot of terrible things that can be found on the Internet, there are also plenty of tools at your disposal to make sure that your children do not end up on some of the most problematic websites on the Internet. There is nothing wrong with letting your children use the Internet for many hours during the day, especially if they are actually learning something along the way. Playing Counter Strike or World of Warcraft all day is one thing, but you should not try to prevent your child by learning about the world through that electronic box.

Use of electronics

Should Your Kids Have Mobile Phones?

Some parents do not like the idea of giving mobile phones to their children because they think that kind of access to information could somehow be harmful. The first thing you need to realize when it comes to preventing your child from owning a phone is that it would be a mistake to leave your child without a phone in certain situations. The reality is that you are not going to be standing next to your child at all hours of the day, so you need to make sure that they are able to contact you if they find themselves in some trouble. At the end of the day, you also need to be able to contact them when you haven’t heard from them for an extended period of time. It is also important to remember that not all phones come with the Internet. You can give your child a regular mobile device if you are worried about that.

Use of electronics

Limit the Video Games

The most important thing you should limit when it comes to the electronics in your household is video games. While having fun is definitely not something that you want to disrupt when it comes to your children, the fact of the matter is that many children end up wasting their lives away on these devices. You do not need to take an authoritarian approach when it comes to video games, but you should at least explain to your children how video games can give them a false feeling of accomplishment.

How Do Digital Cameras Help in Taking Great Panoramic Pictures?

Panoramic pictures

There is a certain trick in taking panoramic pictures that excites the professional photographers who enjoy taking wide angle shots. These kinds of wide angle pictures can cover the 360 degree views. More often than not, these kinds of extreme shots are taken from the top of a tall building like a skyscraper or from a helicopter or from any point that is high enough, and then stitched together using a professional photo stitching software.

Wide Angle Shots with Your Digital Camera

Most of the new digital cameras today come with a dedicated mode for panoramic shots and in fact some of the smartphones also have the panorama feature. One cannot precisely define what these kinds of wide angle shots are all about. Many would just define it is a photo taken with a wider angle but one can quantify the term “wide” here. One can say that the angle is wide enough to be not seen by our naked eyes. With the help of special lenses such wide angle shots can be taken with one click but of course this technique doesn’t hold true for all degrees of wideness. For example, a 360 degree shot can’t be taken with just one click.

Panoramic picture

Creating a Panoramic Photo by Stitching Several Photos

Many professionals also create these panoramic pictures by attaching a series of separately captured pictures. This process is called as ‘Stitching’, which earlier used to be a very tricky process. Today, with the advancements in software, stitching different pictures has become quite easy. Some of the feature-rich Panorama software programs like Panorama Maker have made life easier for professional photographers who love to create panoramic views.

Panorama maker software editing

Panorama software programs like Arcsoft panorama maker come with easy-to-use tools and a very intriguing interface that makes everything a cake-walk. They not only help in capturing wide angle views or landscapes, but are equally efficient in taking pictures of huge objects that cannot be otherwise shot due to closeness with the object. For example, if a photographer is standing very close to a tower, it can get difficult to take the shot of the tall tower, but with the help of panoramic mode, a couple of shots can be taken to make a final panoramic view of the tall tower.

Tricks of Taking Panoramic Shots

Most of the modern digital cameras come with panoramic mode with which, the lens of the camera is optimized for a wide angle shot to be taken. But, the functionality is not just limited to the settings of different optical parameters but these cameras also offer features that help the photographers to capture the series of pictures with ease and stitch them seamlessly after that.

Arcsoft Panorama maker software

Usually when a camera is switched to panoramic mode, the photographer is prompted to choose between vertical and horizontal mode. You also have the choice to go for the combination of both.

Once the desired panoramic mode is selected the camera allows you to start taking shots. Usually on the LCD screen you can see the photo you recently took and the one you are taking right now. This helps in complementing your older picture with the one you are shooting at the moment. You can smartly overlap the new picture with the older, which helps in stitching of the photos and making a good panoramic photo at the end.

Panasonic TX-P65VT20B- The Best 3DTV out there

The all new panasonic TX-01

The Panasonic TX-P65VT20B is quite simply one of the best 3D TVs available in the market today. The Panasonic 3D plasma TV is also the company’s first 3D TV which only makes its accomplishment that much wondrous. 3D is now right up there with other innovative products like touch screen LCDs. Ever since Avatar made its big entry to world cinemas everywhere, the need for 3D has sky rocketed. Everything from mobiles to television jumped on to the whole 3D bandwagon. But many failed miserably. Their attempt at capitalizing on the latest trend went right down the tube because they didn’t make a quality product. But all that changed with the entry of TVs like this one.

The Panasonic TX-P65VT20B offers both freeview HD and freesat tuners to get you a lot of non subscription HD channels. The interface is simple and quite ugly to look at. But it is extremely simple to navigate through the various options. One of the bad points about this set is that there are ads running in the channel listing space. These ads cannot be disabled and can be quite an inconvenience at times. But if you can bear the flashing ads, you won’t find a better Panasonic 3D plasma TV or any 3D TV for that matter.

Amazing 3D TV - panasonic TX-02

Another cool feature of the Panasonic TX-P65VT20B is that it is DNLA compliant. It comes with an Ethernet port or an optional wireless dongle to play content from other networked devices. It also supports various video file formats like AVI, HD MKVs and DiVX whereas only the Mp3 format will be recognized for music files. It also provides you the ability to go online to Panasonic’s Viera Cast service portal.

Enjoy the real experience of 3D in panasonic TX-01

The Panasonic TX-P65VT20B is extremely stylish and will go with pretty much any décor you can throw at it. It also has a nice brown finish which lends a certain air of sophistication. The appearance along with its features easily makes it the best Panasonic 3D plasma TV to date. The image quality is just brilliant but you will need to play around with the settings to utilize its full potential as the standard setting isn’t that great. Skin tones look great on this TV and the colors have a very natural feel to them.

Motorola Zoom Tablet- Will It Be the New King?

Motorola recently released the Motorola Zoom tablet. Ever since the iPad came into being many companies have flooded the markets with their own unique tablets. But so far only a few have really stood out. This zoom tablet has been made to dethrone the current king of tablets, the Apple iPad. Or at least that’s what the company hopes for. But can this tablet successfulltake over the title from Apple? Even though it might be too early to tell, it sure is a product that stands out from the many others.

The Motorola Zoom has a sturdy build and is as strong as the iPad in its construction. The Zoom tablet however is bigger than the iPad. It has a 10.1 inch widescreen display and a high resolution of 1280×800 which is actually a little better than its Apple counterpart which only has a resolution of 1024×768 pixels. The large screen improves the viewing experience by a noticeable amount, but ultimately is subject to personal preferences. It also has got a rubberized back to provide extra grip and to prevent any slippage.

The Motorola Zoom runs on the 1 GHz Nvidia Tegra 2 dual core processor and comes with 1GB DDR2 RAM. It also has a pretty good internal storage space of 32 GB and dual facing cameras with duel LED flash. The dual facing cameras are another feature in which the zoom tablet betters the iPad. It has a 2 MP camera in the front and a 5 MP camera on the rear side. Apart from having a 32 GB in built memory, this tablet also has a micro SD slot that can support an additional 32 GB of storage space. It also has flash support which the iPad sadly doesn’t have.

The Motorola Zoom runs on the new Android Honeycomb operating system and has a slight advantage over others as this new O.S is specifically designed for tablets. It also boasts a very attractive user interface. The various menus are quite snappy and screen rotation function is fast and flawless. Another exciting feature of the new O.S is that the Home, Menu and Back buttons are placed on the lower left side of the software interface. This makes navigation more convenient and easier when the tablet is tilted or held vertically. You can also get Honeycomb apps which may not be as diversified as iPad apps , but will also be available in widescreen modes to suit both tablets and other smartphones.

There are also some great accessories for the Zoom tablet to improve the user experience. There is the leather case that can also be used as a stand, a standard dock for charging and display purposes and a speaker HD dock. The speaker HD dock has three USB ports, HDMI output and built in speakers. The tablet also has an impressive battery life of about 10 hours. With so many different features, the Motorola Zoom can certainly turn out to be an iPad killer, but for its steep price of $799.99.

An Insight into Mobile Number Portability

Mobile number portability helps mobile telephone users to hold on to and use their existing mobile phone number when changing their network provider. Number portability can be a boon or a curse depending on how you look at it and what your needs are. For some, changing their mobile numbers every time they change their mobile network operator is a hassle. They will have to send their new number to everyone in their contact list to inform them about the change. Sometimes sending your number to everyone, particularly if your contact list is large can be very troublesome.

Here’s where mobile number portability comes in. Using the number portability option will enable you to keep the same number you have right now, even if you change your service operator. But the implementation of MNP (Mobile Number Portability) is different in the various different parts of the globe. For instance, the European user will have to contact the new provider to arrange for the necessary process with the old provider. This process is called Recipient-Led porting. The new provider is the Recipient whereas the old provider is the Donor. India is the latest country to join the number portability bandwagon using the recipient led porting system.

On the other hand, the process of mobile number portability in the U.K is quite different as any individual who wishes to port their number will have to get a porting authorization code from the old provider and pass it on to the new one. The new provider will then arrange for the porting of the user’s mobile phone number. This process is called Donor-Led porting. But unfortunately this process has been criticized by some for being inefficient.

Mobile number portability unfortunately also has its disadvantages. When using the number portability facility, one has to get in contact with both the old and new service provider and has to go through various clerical formalities. This process can be frustrating especially since some countries take a number of days to complete the process. Some countries are very efficient in their approach and will finish the process in a matter of a few seconds or minutes whereas others take as long as a week.

But Mobile number portability surely cannot be dismissed as being troublesome as it still offers plenty of convenient and comfortable uses. Countries that have high populations like India or China can find many benefits to this concept as they have millions of cell phone users. But no matter how you look at it, one cannot deny the benefits provided by the concept of mobile number portability to cell phone users everywhere.

Facebook Worth- $50 Billion?

facebook worth 50 billion1

It has been reported by Goldman Sachs that $50 billion is the total Facebook worth, which is a staggering figure. Almost everyone has their pointers near the Facebook login button at some point of the day. The popularity of this social networking website is undeniable. Ever since it came into existence, it has completely wooed people all over the world with its simplicity and efficiency. No other social networking site has ever been as addictive and appealing to people. But still, is the Facebook worth of $50 billion really true? Some points are discussed below.

To determine whether the Facebook worth is likely to be 50 billion dollars, one has to go through several points. Today, there are three main websites online that have been undeniably the most viewed and used websites in recent times. They are Google, Yahoo and Facebook. Out all these three, Facebook is the fastest growing one, not to mention that people are spending more time on Facebook than any other website. In 2010, Facebook made about $2 billion in revenue.

Now by comparing where Google was during its early stages, one will be able to get an idea of the real Facebook Worth. Almost a year after Google went public; it had made about $2 billion in revenue trailing twelve months. Today, it has a $200 billion market capitalization. Market capitalization is the measurement to denote the total value of the company in the stock exchange. So if Facebook goes public next year one can see that Facebook is actually growing faster than the rate at which Google was moving along before.

Another point that reinforces the value of Facebook worth is the mere fact that one in every four page views made in the United States is Facebook. Slowly Facebook is becoming the new home page. People all over the world press the Facebook login button and stay immersed in it every single day. Even though Google is the current king of the search ad market, Facebook is slowly inching in towards capturing the display ad market. Apart from the ad market scenario, Facebook has other sources of revenue too.

The fact that there are almost 500 million users can ensure that Facebook Worth is just and very possibly accurate in being valued at $50 billion. Even though it may problems in certain countries like China , it stands strong and proud. With more and more people getting into the social networking site, it is very much possible that the Facebook worth will rival Google in the future.
