Ever since Apple announced its iPhone 4S phone, most of the iPhone fans and the rest of the non Apple eaters were disgruntled with what Apple announced and expected much more. I completely do agree that the new iPhone 4S looks exactly same as the iPhone 4 but you should realize that there was no iPhone 5 coming! Did Apple ever say that they were going to launch an iPhone 5? It’s just the press and the media that bragged about the iPhone 5.
From the yesterdays Apple media event- Let’s Talk iPhone we got to see the new iPhone 4S, iPod Touch 5th Generation, iPod Nano 7th Generation and some info on the iOS 5 and iCloud. For most of the iPhone fans this event wasn’t very convincing as most of us expected an all new iPhone, i.e.; the iPhone 5. All we got to see is a Samsung Galaxy II inside an iPhone 4 case. Also, the iPod Touch 5th Generation has exactly the same features as the fourth generation. However, it now comes in a new white color, runs on the new operating system iOS 5 and features an integration of the iCloud. The only interesting thing here is that the price has been dropped.
I was stunned to see all the expected features of an iPhone 5 in an iPhone 4S. This raises the question, “If that’s iPhone 4S then what’s iPhone 5 going to feature? a Quad core, 1GB RAM and a better camera?” Well, the best thing we can do is keep our fingers crossed and wait. For now, we can think about the 4S. From the Apple let’s talk iPhone Event, it is clear that the iPhone 4S will feature a 8 Megapixel camera, 1080 full HD video recording, A5 Dual core processor, graphics and longer talk time all in the same old iPhone 4 shell.
Every user on a Windows computer can shut it down by simply going to the start menu. Well, Windows 8 is an exception because there is not start menu! However in other editions, if you have many users on a particular computer, you may want to disable certain users from shutting down the computer. This may be necessary in a college or school environment where students use the college computers. If one student shuts down the computer, the other student won’t be able to use the computer immediately as it will take time to start. For this purpose you may hide the shutdown option from non administrator accounts. Here’s how you do it:
I like the privacy options on Facebook but I’m not very convinced with the range of privacy options available. Recently, Facebook has been working hard to combat the threat from Google Plus. Facebook has introduced major changes including the Timeline Profile page which will roll out officially on the 30th of September. Few weeks ago when Facebook introduced new privacy settings for posts I was very impressed. Users can now select and hide status updates from certain friends by creating lists. This feature was present in the popular Chinese social networking site renren but missing in Facebook.
If you watched the Facebook F8 event, you definitely might have been mesmerized by the eye candy facebook profile page changes know as ‘The Timeline’. Timeline not only looks great but is amazing too. Facebook is going to roll out the timeline profile page on September 30th. But, if you are a hungry Facebook fan like me, I’m pretty you’ll be dying to try it out. Luckily anyone can try the all new Facebook Timeline profile page at this very moment. You can do this by being a developer.
Are you a good photographer? Do you like to click snaps on your mobile phone? Did you ever wonder that it can fetch some money for you? Well, if you haven’t wondered then you should! Because you can!
