  • Facebook Home vs. iPhone 5

    Facebook Home is one of the newest innovations to hit the smartphone market. Using Android's open-door policy, this new application replaces the existing user interface on Android phones with a new interface that focuses on social networks, as opposed to applications. Because the new app is compatible only with Android products, iPhone users aren't able to utilize it. However, some iPhone users still proclaim their devices to be superior. To help consumers form an opinion, a detailed comparison of Android phones equipped with Facebook's new app to the well-respected iPhone 5 is included below.

    Comparable Devices

    Although Facebook Home utilizes the Android operating system, it is not compatible with all Android products. Currently, the only devices that can tolerate this new app are a select few from HTC and Samsung. One such phone is the HTC First, which is the first to come preloaded with the software. For the purposes of comparison, consider the HTC First as the original "Facebook Phone". See what other phones are compatible with Facebook Home here.

    Hardware

    When compared to the iPhone, the HTC First's hardware is lacking. The storage is more limited, the camera isn't as strong, and the speed of the phone is slower. The core operating system of the HTC First is more likely to experience delays, and some lag is also present within individual apps. That being said, Facebook Home seems to function very well in conjunction with this hardware.

    User Interface

    The user interface on the Facebook phone is very different from the user interface on the iPhone. Although Facebook Home isn't actually a different operating system, it will feel like one for most users. After turning the device on for the first time, users log on with their Google and Facebook credentials. On every subsequent start-up, images pulled from the user's Facebook friends will rotate constantly across the screen. Users can also view recent status updates on this screen.

    Users can scroll through all of these initial images and messages without even unlocking the phone, and users can "like" these displays by simply double-tapping the screen. Comments can also be posted directly from the home page.

    As for the iPhone's user interface, it is much more similar to the original Android OS. The interface is centered on applications, many of which can be accessed directly from the home screen. To view Facebook, users must install and click on the Facebook application, or they must visit Facebook via the phone's internet browser.

    Summing Up

    These two phones are very different, but neither is overtly superior to the other. When choosing the ideal phone, users must consider the features that are most important to them. Users who are heavily engaged with social media and are constantly logging on to Facebook during the day may prefer the Facebook phone, whereas users who aren't as addicted to social media may prefer the more classic, application-based approach of the iPhone.

  • What Is Facebook Home?

    The powers that be at Android and Facebook have teamed up in an effort to topple the almighty iPhone in the hearts and minds of social media lovers everywhere. What is the creation this meeting of the minds came up with? It’s called Facebook Home; and if you haven’t heard of it yet, you probably will – very soon.

    Facebook Fans Rejoice

    Who doesn’t have a Facebook obsession these days? Whether it’s crazy cat videos, silly little postcard witticisms, or the ability to keep in touch with friends and family in one convenient location – and without the necessary round of ten thousand phone calls and text messages to share big news with everyone in your social circles – Facebook is becoming a larger part of society every day.

    What Are the Benefits of Facebook Home?

    For people who spend a lot of time navigating in and out of Facebook apps on their mobile phones, the benefits are immeasurable. For one thing, updates, new posts, and Facebook notifications go directly to your Facebook phone screen. Chat heads allows you to send and receive Facebook messages and texts in a single location. You can even continue chatting while using other mobile apps. The bottom line is that this is the definitive Facebook tool for anyone who takes their social networking seriously.

    Who Can Get the App?

    Currently, the Facebook Home app is only available on certain phones that have been named an official Facebook phone. They include:

    • HTC One X
    • HTC One X+
    • Samsung Galaxy Note II
    • Samsung Galaxy S III

    While you are able to download the Home app from the Google Play Store for any of the above phones, the phone that’s getting the most attention as the definitive Facebook Phone is the HTC First. In addition to being available on phones, the Home app should be available for tablets this summer.

    What’s the Big Deal?

    People are living their lives on the go more and more. This means more people are looking for ways to stay connected without being tied to their laptops or tablet devices.

    Facebook Home puts that information in the palms of people's hands and makes it easier than ever for young and old alike to carry on long Facebook conversations, check out videos, and even vote on their best friends cute kid contest entries. Whether they’re watching their kids practice soccer, standing in line at the bank, or waiting on movies to start at local cinemas, people can connect with their friends at any point. You can even fill your phone screen with friends and family and their posts to your Facebook news feed so that you’re always up-to-date with what's going on with your family tree.

    If you love Facebook and use it regularly, you really can’t go wrong with a phone that includes Facebook’s new app as a major feature. Download the app today if you already have a compatible phone and let us know what you think.

    Whether you’re using an HTC One or Samsung Galaxy to use Facebook’s new app, be sure that your phone is protected with the best skin ever.

  • Matte and Glossy

    Not only do we provide our standard Glossy material, that you have all grown to enjoy, but now we offer a Matte material option as well.  This option is available on many of our new devices, along with our best sellers.  The glossy material provides invisible protection for your device, with a shine.  The matte material has a satin finish that truly enhances the look of your gorgeous new device.

    Glossy or matte, is the question.  For some devices we feel that matte is the hands down the way to go and with other devices we tend to leave that choice up to you.  There is also the question as to whether the matte material is appropriate for the screen Skin.  While the matte material screen Skin option has been requested by many, it seems to create a slight distortion but tends to minimize fingerprints.   It really comes down to personal choice, satin versus shiny.

    So if you don't see the material option you are looking for offered on our product page, send us an email and we will see what we can do to help you out.

  • Cloud Computing: What is It and How Does it Work?

    As technology has progressed over the last several decades the computer industry has developed many different ways to store information. In the beginning, the amount of information people could store in a single location was relatively small. As time went on, however, larger and more effective storage methods emerged. Today, we have a particular method of storing information that is virtually without limits: cloud computing, more simply known as ‘the cloud’.

    What is the Cloud?

    The term "cloud" refers to a network of machines owned and operated by third parties. When you have permission to use this network, you can store your files, applications and other data on these machines. The data you store is accessible from any location, and you no longer need to worry about running out of storage space on your own computers. You can also use cloud computing to run certain operations and applications, which is often faster and more effective than using your own machines.

    How Does it Work?

    When you utilize a cloud computing system, your computers connect to the cloud system via the Internet. Some cloud systems allow you to use your existing programs, such as web browsers, to access their resources, while others require the purchase and installation of specialized software. The cloud system to which you connect to is composed of servers, computers, and data storage systems that can include a variety of applications and programs. A central server that monitors interactions with clients to ensure that everything runs smoothly manages the entire system.
    Many cloud computing companies offer security guarantees along with their basic cloud services. Such companies have measures in place to keep their clients' information secure, and they back up all of their clients' data to ensure that nothing is lost if the system breaks down. Most companies offering security guarantees are paid providers.

    Cloud Computing Options

    If you decide to use cloud computing for your company or to store personal information you will have many options to choose from. Some larger companies create their own private cloud to store the information from multiple operating locations. Creating a private cloud for your company often involves the services of a third-party cloud provider who helps you establish the cloud. Other cloud users subscribe to a public cloud that they share with many other clients.

    There are advantages to both of these approaches to cloud computing. While private clouds are more secure, they may also be more expensive or difficult to operate. Public clouds, on the other hand, require less participation from clients, but they may not always offer enough security for client data.

    When choosing cloud storage, you must also decide whether to purchase cloud space or use free space. Free cloud storage providers don't typically offer as much security or support to their clients. However, if you are storing information that isn't confidential, or if you don't need much technical support, free storage may be the best option. Paid cloud storage providers typically charge clients based on the amount of storage or operational resources they require, and most paid providers offer plenty of support to their clients. Thus, paid cloud storage is usually the best option for clients who need a secure environment and extra support.
    Let us know your thoughts on cloud computing and if your business takes part in this new trend.

  • What Service Provider Should You Use as a Business Owner?

    Apple® introduced the iPhone 5 at the end of September of 2012. Not surprisingly, devoted iPhone lovers and users flocked to cell phone providers to pre-order the new release. Initially, AT&T was the only cell phone provider to offer iPhone service with Verizon following, and Sprint later jumping on the bandwagon. It wasn't until March 27, 2013, that T-Mobile became a player with the other three major cell phone providers.

    Important Things to Consider Before Deciding on a Provider

    Price is always an important consideration, but you also want to look at what you get for the price. Even more important than the price, you will need to look at each cell phone provider's coverage area. People who live in major metropolitan areas won't need to be as concerned as people who live in smaller towns or rural communities. Most providers have fairly decent coverage in all of the big cities. According to a report by Herb Weisbaum for NBC News.com Technology, Verizon came out on top as the best city provider. The findings were based on a Consumer Reports subscriber survey to which 63,000 readers responded.

    All of this being said, depending on your location, you may not have as much of a choice when it comes to choosing a cell phone provider, whether for business or personal use.

    Consider The Purposes For Which You Use an iPhone

    As a business owner, you may use your smartphone for many purposes. The iPhone 5 is the lightest iPhone to date, and it is arguably lighter and sleeker in design than any of the comparable Android, Windows, or Blackberry smartphones. With some providers you can actually talk on the phone and surf the Internet simultaneously.

    The iPhone also has an excellent camera, so some business people may find the high quality of the camera and the ability to easily upload photos useful. The flip side of that is that doing so uses data, and with the exception of Sprint, all of the cell phone providers limit the amount of data subscribers can use, even on their most comprehensive plans.

    Cost of the 16 GB iPhone With Each of Four Major Providers

    Length of Contract

    In an attempt to lure users who don't want to be tied to a contract, T-Mobile has done away with the requirement that their subscribers lock themselves into a two-year contract. AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon all require a two-year contract commitment for subscribers who want to take advantage of their most cost-effective plans. It is also worth noting that Sprint and Verizon can charge subscribers up to $350 for terminating their contracts early. AT&T charges up to $325.

    Other Considerations

    When you break down the cost of the three providers who first carried the iPhone, Sprint charges the most. The caveat to that is that you don't have to worry about keeping track of the amount of data you use, and you don't risk being throttled (or having your Internet speeds slowed) if you go over the maximum amount of data use that the AT&T and Verizon allow. If you are a business user and you use your iPhone a lot – either when you're away from the office or not at home, then Sprint may be a viable option.

    If you are a business user and your business frequently sends you to different locations for significant time periods, then you might not want to be locked into a contract with any provider – especially if you don't know which provider will offer the best service where you are. In that case, the flexibility of the T-Mobile plan may be better for you, but that won't take effect until after April 14, 2013.

    Ultimately, your decision as to which provider to choose depends on where you are. Check the service area map for each provider before making a decision. Analyze the amount of data you use, and how much you think you'll need when using your iPhone as a mobile hotspot. Be proactive and look over each provider's website to see all of the possible options.

    The best plan for a business user is the one that offers consistent reception and one that spells out everything that is included in the plan. Be sure you understand what additional charges you may incur for exceeding the data limits. Those extra charges can be pretty significant. Don't forget that you're locked into a two-year contract with every provider except T-Mobile, so you'll wind up paying between $325 and $350 to break the contract. Another consideration is that most providers have locked phones. This means that you won't be able to use the phone with a different provider should you decide to switch.
