At this point Google already has an assortment of options that cleverly lock your home screen, including the ‘trusted places or devices’ feature. However, Google has now added a whole new impressive security unlock/lock feature which is being called the ‘Trusted Voice’ option. What this basically entails is if you say “Ok, Google” your voice will automatically unlock your phone, but importantly, anyone else’s voice will not be able to unlock it.
Laptops are built to be portable but can still be a little cumbersome to carry around. iPhones and iPads however are more geared toward comfort and portability. The one issue with those devices is they tend to lack the storage capacity which desktops or laptops have. The clever people at Apple have come to the rescue with four different helpful features that make it easier to add higher storage capacity on recent iOS devices ranging from 64GB to 128GB, depending on the device. Now that’s a vast improvement on the measly 16GB basic model. When you consider the need to store all of your thousands of photos and videos, 128GB may still not be enough storage space for an iPad.
Remember sitting in class and coming across the three ‘Rs’: Reuse, Reduce, and Recycle. Now the same can be applied on a new level with Electronic Recycling. Electronic recycling is a process in which the functioning parts of complicated electronic devices are saved and subsequently used for other purposes; while their outdated parts are done away with and discarded. This growing phenomenon helps reduce electronic waste and helps ward off environmental issues. When electronic waste is disposed of like regular garbage is, it can have alarming effects on the environment and our well-being.
Ever since the introduction of ‘Pong’ in the 80s the evolution of games and gaming has been a fascinating whirlwind of an experience. So much development in the realm of gaming has been revolutionary, almost transforming the concept of gaming into an art form rather than an activity one engages in to pass the time.
As is expected technology has had a large hand in why gaming is at the point of where it is today and how much further it can go in the decades to come. With all the improvements surrounding the gaming community perhaps the biggest to come out in recent memory is the introduction of 3D technology. This new technology has revamped and taken gaming to a whole new level as more developers and gamers are beginning to appreciate and implement the technology.
It’s hard to believe that Apple’s iPhone 6 was released 5 months ago now. But time marches on and as it does our attention inevitably turns to new and better things. The iPhone 7 chatter is already gaining serious momentum as all the latest rumours surrounding its release date, specs, and other components start to send out ripples of excitement across the globe. When it comes to the subject of design, we think we can expect no major changes between the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 7 Plus. Apple has a tendency to stick with similar designs for at least two generations of the iPhone. So the lighter, thinner, more rounded design of the iPhone 6 will most likely be present in the iPhone 7S.
With the launch of the iPhone 6 came the predicted avalanche of new and exciting accessories for Apples new offering. From portable charging devices to detachable camera lenses to the latest range of protective cases, the accessories are as innovative as they are numerous. These accessories are designed to help you get even more from your smartphone and we have picked out 10 in particular that we like the look of.
Thanks largely to the release of its new smartphones, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, Apple notched up a staggering, record breaking, $18 billion in revenue in the last quarter. Yet again Apple cleverly recognised a gap in its market for devices with larger screens and bigger memories and plugged that gap with its trademark beautiful devices.
By tweaking the storage capacity of its new iPhones, consumers now opt for the higher-priced 64GB and 128GB models rather than the 16GB capacity models. That boosted the average selling price of the iPhone to $687, up from $603 in the September 2014 quarter.
The advent of 3D Printing has fascinated many, yet few know the inner workings of 3D Printing. Sometimes referred to as ‘additive manufacturing,’ 3D Printing is comprised of a printer used to create a solid, three dimensional object from an electronic or digital file.
It takes time for the printer to churn out the object, as layer upon layer of material is added. Materials that can be used by a 3D printer are plastic, metal, and many other substances. Continue reading
