iOS 7 – Swiping has never been easier

12 Jun


Not that I think the use of an iPhone could be any easier, aside from small irritations off course. I do have to admit I got a little bit excited when I heard about IOS 7, mainly because it looks like they’re actually changing quite a bit. It seems the keyword is once again simplicity, aside from the new look, their purpose was to make it even easier to access all types of features. For instance by using the newly integrated Control Center, which allows you to adjust Wi-Fi, Bluetooth or pause a song within a single swipe. I could tell you a lot more, but that’s what the video is for. And remember to update come fall, even if it’s just to get that annoying red number off your screen.



Samsung Galaxy Note 0.1

25 Feb

Samsung just announced the Galaxy Note 8.0, which is supposed to compete with Apple’s Ipad mini. Samsung already had a similar sized tablet out, the Galaxy Note 2, but they had to make one that was just a little bit better than the one from Apple. The Galaxy Note 8.0 is obviously 8 inch, where the Ipad mini is 7.9. The resolution is also slightly higher and the camera has 1.3 megapixels, where the Ipad mini has 1.2. You’d think this is a joke, but this is what the rivalry between Samsung and Apple has come to; making it 0.1 percent better than the competition.


The danger for both companies is that these  tiny and relatively cheap tablets are taking a chunk out of selling regular sized tablets and thus lowering profits. I think when it comes down to it, if you have to choose between Apple or Samsung, wether it’s a phone or a tablet, it just depends on what system suits you best. Considering together they are leading the market in a big way, you’ll probably end up with a pretty okay product. It might just be 0.1 better or worse than the one your buddy has.
