    PS 4 and Xbox one

    Here is the time to finally decide. What should you opt to buy, a PlayStation 4 or an Xbox One. Understanding the system of both by differentiating it with some facts is an easier way to decide than just blindly following rumors and propaganda. So here we give a definite overview on how these two new consoles stand up next to each other. In the first glance, Microsoft’s Xbox One and Sony’s PlayStation 4 have a lot of common features. As both of them have a 500GB hard drive. Both have an AMD Eight-core processor.  Both have the capacity to play Blu-rays or DVDs , both have Eight GB of RAM, but the PS4’s RAM has a different and more powerful variety that gives it better graphics than Xbox One. All the gaming consoles are similar but not created equal. The Xbox One and PlayStation 4 look a lot similar but also have some key differences that give them peculiar characteristics. Controllers and their efficiency The Xbox One’s controllers are amazing to hold, and the triggers are too cool. They definitely make a big difference. But at the same time, Sony’s built-in captivating touchpad, and PlayStation Vita as a PS4 controller, is also not very easy to beat. The debate related to the better quality and performance of the Xbox One controller versus the PS4 controller is the one that can’t be won easily as, mostly gamers’ already have their own locked in choices and preferences which are hard to change. Sony is still stuck with the typical dual analog sticks, but at least has given a central divot recess for easy gripping. Microsoft also slightly modified its controller for Xbox One.

The good news is that there is a steadily growing arsenal of technological tools available to entrepreneurs; tools that allow you to make your mark in the marketplace, without exceeding the constraints of your budget. Some of the must-haves in this list are fairly obvious, but it’s often the most obvious ones that we fail to see until it’s too late. However, this list isn’t only about the apps and software you can get to grips with; there are also one or two basics worth thinking about Your web connection is important. It allows you to share data, communicate with your clients and even conduct conference calls. What you don’t want is a connection that threatens to pack up every time you share a large file or in the middle of an important meeting. This may be going against the grain, but it’s worth spending that little extra on your web connection and get a dedicated business internet connection. Not only will you be able to perform all your necessary tasks without any worry, but the standard of technical support available to business owners is far superior to that offered to domestic customers. Your company relies on data. Figures, leads and expenses are all vital to gaining an accurate overview of your business’s performance. Leads and figures can help to decide how marketing strategies perform and those vital financial figures will tell you just where your money is best delegated.

  • Nowadays, there’s a computer in almost every house. Because of this, more and more people are trying to learn how to maintain their own computers to save themselves the hassle of having to bring it to the shop as well as the money they have to pay for labor. While computer components are not as sensitive as some people would believe, there are still a few things you need to keep in mind when opening up and doing maintenance on your PC. Here are a few tips to get you on the right track: Unplug the power supply when opening the pc This may seem obvious but I’ve seen quite a number of beginners and even intermediate to advanced users who keep the power supply plugged in. While this is fine if you know what you’re doing, it’s still best to err on the side of safety and completely unplug the power supply from the socket. Use anti-static wrist straps, an anti-static mat or simply ground yourself on the case Static electricity is the enemy of every computer component. A bad electrical discharge can fry ram chips, motherboards, video cards, and add-in boards such as sound cards. So if you plan on installing any components or even just popping your pc open to give it a good cleaning, be sure to wear an anti-static wrist strap or use an anti-static mat. In an emergency, you can simply plant your feet properly and just touch the casing to ground yourself before performing any maintenance on your system. Be sure to do this constantly to keep yourself grounded. Don’t force components into place This may seem funny right now but there are a lot of people who tend to just force the components into place. Each component was designed to fit in...

    Samsung Unveils the Galaxy S4

    Samsung has finally unveiled the next in their line of globally available smartphones, the Galaxy S4.   The Galaxy S4 comes with Android 4.2.2 on board, making it the most up to date Android phone that isn’t a Nexus, but still packed with the latest from Samsung.  Samsung is making the Galaxy S4 available in Black Mist and White Frost on all four of the major US carriers as well as most of the major international carriers. Samsung has created what is essentially two phones here. There’s the Exynos based Octo-Core processor clocked at 1.6 GHz and the Snapdragon based Quad Core 1.9GHz processor. These two chipsets are expected to behave differently, but performance is supposed to be similar for most tasks between two chipsets. Regardless of which processor your carrier wind up with, your Galaxy S4 will also be packing 2GB of RAM and either 16, 32, or 64GB of storage depending on which model you purchase. Both the 2600mAh battery and the microSD slot are accessible though the removable rear panel, and the microSD slot can support up to 64GB. On the other side of that removable panel you’ll find a 5-inch Super AMOLED display with 1080p resolution at 441ppi, coming out just under the HTC One’s 468ppi at 4.7-inches. The 13MP rear camera and 2MP front camera are certainly the high end of what is now considered pretty standard fare, but the software that drives this technology is brand new. Samsung is placing a premium on the ability to use both cameras at once.  Whether you are video chatting, taking a photo, or recording video, you’ll be able to use both cameras simultaneously. The front camera alone also gets some special treatment, being capable of 1080p video at 30FPS. Read Full Article

    LG has no plans for Windows 8 Phone

    LG’s reluctance to embrace Windows Phone 8 underscores the difficulties that the platform faces with both consumers and vendor partners. LG was one of the early partners that signed on with Microsoft, releasing the LG Quantum in the first wave of Windows Phone devices. Microsoft’s has a great relationship with Nokia, which is considered in the industry first among equals when it comes to Microsoft partners, has some vendors reassessing their own support for the operating system.   Over the past year or so, LG has been focusing on Android and has started building phones running on Mozilla’s Firefox mobile OS. Bill Gates has been very open as of late about his disappointment in Microsoft’s mobile strategy.  Windows Phone slow to catch on with consumers I am sure Microsoft would love to get another big phone vender like LG on board to sell there products.

    Samsung Galaxy S4 Will Launch March 14

    Samsung Electronics will unveil its next flagship smartphone the Galaxy S4 on March 14.  The next generation Samsung flagship smartphone Galaxy S4 is no longer a rumor. The tech giant confirmed that it would launch the new Galaxy S smartphone at a March 14 event in New York.  Samsung released the first Galaxy S smartphone during the CTIA mobile trade show in the U.S. in 2010.  Samsung has named the conference “Samsung Unpacked”. Samsung Galaxy S4 is expected to heat up the rivalry with Apple’s iPhone in the U.S. mobile phone market.  The Galaxy S3 took Samsung to a great Q4 of 2012 and clinched them the top spot in the mobile market. Apple would regain the lead but reports show that Samsung beats Apple in connected devices sales in 2012.  The new Galaxy S4 and the expected new Galaxy Note (expected to release this year) are slowly pulling Apples market share away.
