Don't Let iPhone See You NAKED !!!

The iPhone 4 is a wonderful gadget developed under the supervision of Mr. Steve. It was announced on June 7, 2010 at the WWDC 2010 held at the Moscow center, San Francisco and was updated on 24 , 2010 in U.S, France, Japan. The iOS of iPhone 4 is similar to previous ipad and iPhone. It is known as touchscreen smartphone with features like A4 , Retina Display and Facetime.

Iphone and Facetime:- The iphone is built with two front cameras one on the front and other on the back to serve the facetime feature properly. The iPhone software developer has designed facetime feature in such a way that only a single tap can make you use this feature. If you want to start a video call with your friend just tap on its name and tap the face time button. It is awesome as it works in both portrait and landscape modes. Someone has rightly said that Rose has thorns too same is with facetime.

Issues regarding Facetime:- Many users are complaining against facetime . According to their complains they have seen some photos taken iPhone front facing camera, which they never clicked.

Some complains are as follows:- One of the girl stated in her report , "My boyfriend and I have both recently experienced this problem several times - when one of us is calling the other via FaceTime, an old picture freezes on our screen, while the person receiving the call only sees a black screen," wrote kar0786. "It's kind of creepy, because it brought up photos of both of us at work, where I have used FaceTime a few times but he never has.

We're just wondering how/why this is happening, and if there is a fix. It's not terribly inconvenient, but it's definitely unsettling, where is seems that even if we haven't taken a picture or used FaceTime, the camera is keeping images." Another wrote, "I have a dashboard mount for my phone. I had left the phone in the car when I ran in to get my sandwich. This was at a strip mall that I had never visited before and never connected to any WiFi. I parked in the middle of the lot, about 75ft from the doors to Subway. Ran it, got my food, hopped back in the car. I hit the button to see if anyone called me (no one did) and drove off. After I got in to where I was working and ate my sandwich, I tried to use FaceTime and saw a frozen image of me in the car from 20-30 minutes prior!"

So, lets be careful while accessing Facetime.

Android And Market.

Android is finally beating up iPhone and blackberry phones, in U.S market. After evaluating the statics of the Android sale chart we can say that 33% of the U.S citizens owns a smart-phone, Android is on first number in the race and Blackberry stands second with 28.9 % and on third is iPhone with 25.2 % sale rate. But still android needs a lot of work to do so, that it can gain the trust of the customers in the market.

- The biggest draw back of Android application development platform is the inability of smart-phone to stay current on software. So, Android developers should reduce fragmentation. As apple stressing on new software to increase its portability and ability with new operating system like apple the android should also be in touch with latest software as the latest phones are using a version of android that became updated four months ago. So, its a time for something new.

- Android is very well known for its open source platform as codes are all ready available and you can just go on its store and develop any application with the help of given codes. It is heard from one source that Google is now paying attention to the " Non fragmentation clauses " upon licensees. It is quite upset for that users who always want to see his handsets different from others. I really appreciate this but it is very much risky concept for Google because if the other OS proves more attractive to users like Window Phone 7 they will ultimately move towards it.

Switch off GPS Geo location features in any other app that makes use of it as well.

Disable Adobe Flash:- Adobe Flash is required for the functionality of certain websites. Flash gives an enriching web experience but also consumes a lot of battery. Switching it off is one possible way of reducing battery consumption. You can set the browser to load Flash only when you want it to load. To do this, open the internet browser, go to Settings > Enable Plug-ins and set it to On Demand.

Use Battery Usage Screen:- Android phones have a nifty little utility, which lets you monitor what apps consume the most power and thus affecting battery life the most. This is the Battery Usage Screen and you can access it by opening Settings > About Phone > Battery use. You can then decide what action needs to be taken.

Apple TV is a blessing for an industry

Apple TV is a blessing for an industry trying to move the needle forward on sales

We all are quite familiar with Apple TV Programming. Apple TV allows consumers to use an HDTV set to view photos, play music and watch video that originates from limited Internet services or a local network. The first generation (white) had iTunes, Flickr, Mobileme/.Mac, and Youtube. The second generation added Netflix. Both models supported downloading/streaming podcasts. And soon we will be introduced to "Smart TV". Developers at Apple , Inc are apparently working on this device.

Basic features of Smart TV:- It is quite clear by the name that this device will surely include some combination of TV content. It will also include input from OTA/Cable cards. It will also include variety of TV apps and other apps like Facebook, twitter and web browser integration similar what we have see in Google TV. This device will be fully loaded with variety of games applications for all age and sex and it will also offer a combination remote and keyboard. It is likely ARM based running on the latest version of iOS involving Apple's dual core design. Munster previously remarked that “While Apple’s commitment to the living room remains a ‘hobby’ we continue to believe the company will enter the TV market with a full focus, as an all-in-one Apple television could move the needle when connected TVs proliferate”. It is under development stage so, it is hard to know what exactly Smart TV will be offering. It is likely that it will offer some sort of iPhone/ iPad/iPod Touch docking support. It will offer several streaming options and some other programming.
