One Minute Political Survey

Hey Everyone please take this survey. It will only take a minute.

The Pros and Cons of updating to IOS7

     Last Month Apple released their newest mobile software by the name of IOS7. Overall the ratings have been for the most part negative. I think this is mainly because people who normally get iPhones like for how simple they are and this new update made it slightly more complex. 

     For the younger crowd though most people very much like the new update. The main downside for people like me though is that there are many glitches and apps are crashing a lot more often. My main complaint though was the music app. They added the iTunes radio to it which is pointless if you have Pandora One because it is the exact same but with ads. 

     Also the app kept crashing as well as the iTunes app. The recent IOS 7.0.3 update though fixed most of the problems. Overall though I am very happy with the new update. I love the new control center because you access almost all of your settings just through swiping up on the screen. Also the new lock screen allows you to swipe anywhere on the screen to unlock it.

Ipad Air Review and comparison

On Tuesday, October, 22nd Apple released their newest tablet. It's called the Ipad Air. This Ipad is not only much lighter than its previous model it also is much more  powerful. Another plus about the new Ipad is that it is still the same price. Some people were worried that this model would increase in price but they were very happy when it didn't. One thing that disappointed me very much about this Ipad is that they didn't add the new fingerprint scanner.

This is the primary reason I might not get this tablet. Also I am a big fan of buying Ipads used because that way you don't lose nearly as much money. Recently I have done research on the new surface 2 from Microsoft and it was very impressive as well. Microsoft includes Word, Powerpoint, and Excel with the Surface 2 and so Apple just recently announced that Pages, Keynote, and Numbers will all be free for new Apple devices.

If you want these on your Ipad for free but you don't want to buy the new one there is one other I found out. If you have bought either the Iphone 5c or the Iphone 5s then you can download them for free on that device and then it will show up as a free download on your Ipad. Make sure you have the same apple ID on your devices or else this won't work.

The Headphones industry

Headphones are a very key part of almost every young person's life in the world. There are many companies that solely make their money off of headphones. The leader of these companies is Beats By Dr. Dre, they can sell a pair of their headphones for $300. Other companies have tried to compete with them in the luxurious headphone industry but they are not nearly as successful. The main reason for this is that Beats have established a name in the industry as the best of the best.
Recently Monster cable company and Beats By Dr Dre have ended their partnership, this was mainly due to the fact that the monster cables were breaking and customers were mad that they paid so much money and their headphones were breaking. Now that Beats make their own cable, they don't have nearly as much of an issue with them breaking. Monster Cable decided that they would decide to make their own luxurious headphones. They sell theirs though for about $100 less than Beats but they still do not sell nearly as many. 

Headphones are now very important to people and they want the quality of their music to be high. Skullcandy sells headphones as well but they charge as little as $10 for a pair of their headphones. They are trying to appeal to the lower class market and for the money their headphones are very good quality. If you do have enough money to spend on Beats I would definitely recommend doing so.

My IPhone 5s and 5c Review

Apple has just released the new Iphone 5s as well as the new Iphoe 5c. I personally am a really big fan of the 5s because of how powerful it is. They put their brand new a chip inside of it which increases the graphic quality without using more power. This is due to their new 64-bit chip they have put in the new phone. The Iphone 5s also has a very nice slow motion video camera so you can see some exciting moments in your life slowed down to enjoy it even more. As well as the new flash, it is much more responsive and clear.

The reason I like the 5s a lot more than the 5c is also because only the 5s has the fingerprint sensor. I think this is a very useful piece of technology. Because it will not allow anyone else to get into your phone if they steal it or something. The 5c is coming in a bunch of different colors but the power behind it is very weak. Also the screen is not nearly as high of durability. they did a drop test of the two phones from the same height and the 5c shattered and the 5s did not even scratch up a little bit. The other main difference that I like is that the 5s is made of metal and has an aluminum back, whereas the 5c is made of plastic.
