Happy Birthday, iPhone!

Monday, July 16th, 2012

Happy Birthday iPhone! Five years ago, you were introduced you to the world and the mere idea of your development was met with thunderous applause. Before you, your older brother iPod was the big dog on the block. It was the ultimate mobile device, replacing the long-standing reign of the Walkman and portable CD players. Just like big brother iPod, you changed the mobile technology world, to the point where multi-million dollar companies have copied off of some of your ingenuity in their own technology.

You’ve done a lot over the last five years. It seems like just yesterday, Steve Jobs announced your release at the January 2007 MacWorld expo. You were boasted as being five years ahead of the game and five years later, you’ve generated over $150 billion in revenue. Along the way there were some stumbles: jailbreak softwares, antenna-gate, so on and so forth. But in the long run, it’s safe to say that you will be remembered as the game-changer that launched the early 21st century mobile boom.

Let’s take a look back on memory lane and look at the iPhone that was and the iPhone that is now…

iPhone

The original iPhone debut in 2007. The concept combined the functions of an iPod with a revolutionary touchscreen display, a cellular phone, a digital camera and essentially a mini-personal computer.

iPhone 3G; iPhone 3GS

The oldest version of iPhone still in production, the iPhone 3G boosted the speed and hardware of its predecessor. With twice the RAM and just under twice the processor speed, the iPhone 3G and 3GS answered many performance questions from original iPhone skeptics.

iPhone 4; iPhone 4S

And last, but certainly not least, today’s iPhone 4. The 8 megapixel camera, 1Ghz processor, AMOLED display and latest iOS make the iPhone 4 a giant in today’s super competitives mobile device market. The iPhone 4 combines the latest and greatest in design, display and functional technology, trademarks of the Apple brand.

Samsung – Apple’s Greatest Foe?

Friday, June 29th, 2012

Samsun Galaxy Skin - Samsun Droid Screen Protector - Best Skins Ever

With a philosophy driven by design and focused on foolproof usability, Apple products appeal to a large consumer base in the US. Buyers in the American market enjoy easy-to-use phones that also look pretty (processor speed and App selection are just bonuses). And with a rabid fan base, “Apple people” stay loyal to Apple products – iteration after iteration, for better or for worse.

But can a heavyweight contender from the Android market break through and threaten Apple’s share of the smartphone market? Samsung, the arguable king of Android phones, certainly looks to be the best choice to challenge Apple for their fan base.

The third rendition of Samsung’s Galaxy S phone quietly made its way to the mobile phone market  – with Samsung pulling out all the stops to protect their new phone’s concept and design. After debuting overseas, the phone came stateside in June 2012, being touted as an iPhone killer.

The sleek design and HD AMOLED display made Samsung’s latest Android an aesthetic competitor to the iPhone. But the Galaxy S III is more than just a “pretty face,” It’s powered by a 1.4GHz quad core processor and 1GB of RAM along with Android OS 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

Apple fans fear not – the tech giant is still very much innovating and will likely announce some new line of products in the fall that will keep every tech blogger, columnist, reviewer and developer on the edge of their seats. This will follow a mad dash to storefronts in person and online where you hope to be one of the lucky few to hoist the next iSomething with it’s innovative design, display and functionality.

But if nothing else, Samsung’s Galaxy S III appears to have capitalized on the Apple formula.  Could Samsung finally unseat Apple in the Smartphone market?  Time will tell.

Design, Display – these kinds of aesthetics drive the value of an investment like a smart phone. That makes Smartphone accessories that much more important. Be sure to protect your latest investment with Samsung Galaxy Skins and iPhone skins to help prevent scratches and blemishes.

MacBook Pro: The Laptop King

Wednesday, June 13th, 2012

The MacBook Pro, Apple’s premier notebook, ranks supreme in the laptop kingdom. Since 2006 Apple has dominated the industry and set the bar in design, usability and (to some) most importantly display technology. The mastery of “less is more” design set Apple computers aside from the rest in aesthetics, and with every model the tech giant made great strides in display resolutions – making their incredibly user-friendly interface pop out visually.

After years of Apple’s push towards mobility, CEO Tim Cook’s latest new release announcement at June’s World Wide Developer’s Conference finally had to do with a product that didn’t start with a lowercase “i.”

Apple will roll out a new line of MacBook Pro computers, which, according to Cook will be the most advanced Mac ever created. With a price tag starting at $2199, Mac buyers would sure hope the latest Apple computer came with enhancements. Good news to the Apple-faithful, the newest upgrades are what Mac does best.

Design will have slight modifications – with the newest MacBook Pro weighing in just under 4.5 lbs, measuring up to .7 inches thick.

Performance is sure to boom with an Intel quad-core i7 processor, 16GB of ROM, up to 768GB of internal storage and over 7 hours worth of battery life.

But the biggest, baddest upgrade to Apple’s signature laptop – its 15.5 inch “retina display” which will boast over twice as many pixels as most HD televisions.

Similar to the upgrade in The New iPad display, Apple has shown a mastery of aesthetics with a high-resolution screen.

With such a hefty price tag, Apple users are sure to be on guard against anything that may hurt the design and display of their beloved devices. In order to protect their MacBook Pro’s while still showing off the signature aluminum look – clear skins and screen protectors could be the answer. Using clear, protective skins means scratches and blemishes don’t stand a chance to ruin your $2000 investment.

MacBook Pro skins and screen protectors are specifically engineered to fit and protect almost any MacBook – the user doesn’t have to cut out holes for ports or leave any edge/corner uncovered and unprotected.

Mac users don’t have to stop at their laptops either. iPhone skins, iPad Skins and other clear skins can be used to protect the sleek designs and displays of Apple’s latest and greatest devices.

Apple looks to iPad Mini, iPhone 5 to deliver ‘exciting’ September? (CNET)

Once again the iPhone 5 and iPad mini rumors continue to circle the web. From manufacturer blue prints to “inside sources,” all speculation continues to point towards a September release of Apple’s newest smartphone and tablet upgrades.  While there’s no solid evidence that either product exists even in a developmental stage, Apple fans across the globe will be looking to early fall for some sort of hardware update. In the mean time, owners of The new iPad and iPhone 4 remain at the top of the Apple product food chain.

Google to Sell Nexus Smartphones and Tablets Direct (Mashable)

Google is cutting out the middleman as they begin to directly sell Nexus android phones and tablets. This powerplay allows Google to take back some control from carriers that install their own services on Droid phones and tablets while blocking certain Google apps & services. Not to mention, the move will prove to be more lucrative for the tech giant.

Tablet Skins: Protecting your Gadgets One Screen at a Time

Thursday, May 31st, 2012

Everyday the world is becoming a little more mobile. The demand for data has become up-to-the-second. It seems like just yesterday, “the internet” was considered to be those free sample CDs AOL used to mail out. Today, if you’re unable to check your email, order a latte and stream your favorite TV shows at the same time than your commute is ruined.

We want data: always.

To keep up with the heavy-duty demand for data – your mobile device (be it mobility phone, tablet, netbook, etc.) has to be pretty durable.

How do you go to work on a tablet from dusk until dawn and still keep it free from finger smudges after lunch, coffee/tea/other wake-up beverages, and other variables that can lead to scratches and blemishes?

Tablet skins and screen protectors can help your cause. Designed to the manufacturer’s specs and easy to apply – full-body skins and screen protectors provide a clear, protective layer between your precious tablet and the everyday dangers at home, in the office or on the commute that can harm or tarnish your tablet’s display or casing.

Now is where the fun begins: Are you an Apple or Android kind of person?

Do you prefer a tablet with an HD display, out-of-this-world processor speed and the operating system that essentially paved the way for all mobile giants? If so, you’re probably an Apple person – and you’re most likely in possession of the new iPad. If so, how do you feel about having an unprotected HD screen with its 2048×1536-pixel resolution at 264 ppi?

I think its safe to assume your screen would rather go untouched – perhaps an iPad 3 Screen Protector or full body skin would do the trick?

That is, unless, you prefer the dynamically growing line of Android-based tablets ranging from Amazon’s Kindle Fire to Samsung’s new 10” model of the popular Galaxy Tab. Whether you’re seeking ultimate entertainment or proven performance – Android tablets are strong stakeholders in the mobile market. That being said, Kindle Fire Skins as well as other newly emerging tablet skins are becoming that much more important on a daily basis.

Whether you prefer iOS or Droid products – the solution is clear – protect your beloved tablet today.
