Apple's iPad mini 2 is said to have 324ppi Retina display which will make it an awesome display even topping the iPad 3 and also the ipad 4. so far reports are not clear as to if the end users like the larger screens or prefer the Mini. Only time will tell if Apple will continue to push the mini series.
As of Jan 31 2013 A new law went into effect called the the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”) . In the nut shell it is no longer to do without your carriers permission. Permission would always be in writing if given which I assume will take a lot of work to get if at all.
The way it is written Unlocking is in a major grey area under the DMCA. The law was put in place and supposed to protect creative works, but it's often been misused by electronics makers and Carriers to block competition and kill the used phone markets which in return increase both their bottom lines and keep share holders very happy.
Just imagine if this happened to the auto industry and you could no longer buy or sell used cars only new ones. Or if you could no longer sell or buy a used home only a new one.
Home builders and auto manufactures profits would sky rocket but the consumer would suffer. Just think what that would do to our already hurting ecconomy. We do and never really have unlocked phones but Why single out the Cellular industry and mandate someone that pays hundreds of dollies for a smart phone can not do what ever they want with their purchase or if they elect to sell it why can't the buyer have the right to deactivate the phone they just purchased on the carrier of their choice??????????
Rumor has it that Apple is developing a dick Tracy style smart watch. Could it be others have tried like Fossil, Palm and Motorola and all failed could Apple be the one that makes it work and if so I wonder if the battery will last more then 20 minutes. The battery has always been the main reason others failed. It would be awesome if they figured out a solution.
Did you crack the screen on your Iphone 5. WAIT do not replace it yet if it is still working and just cracked. The reason is simple. There are very few aftermarket replacement parts available as of yet and the part is in great demand.
In another month or so when the aftermarket manufactures start to flood the market Apple should lower the price of their parts as the competition starts to become readily available. I have seen this happen with the IPhone 4s, 4, 3s, 3 along with every IPad so far.
Do you have an Iphone, Ipad or Ipod this tip is a must. Once a month turn on your device and let it run totally dead then recharge it fully. Once fully charged continue to let it charge another 30 minutes then remove it from the charger. You are now set and try to do this once a month.
Want to get more talk time out of your phone. Here are a few tips that will help. Shut off all apps that are not in use. Turn off the wifi when not in use or it will continue to search and run the battery down 25% faster. Turn down the brightness of your screen, a little less bright my add that extra 30 minutes you need before the battery dies.
