LTE....where you at?

What I don't get is all of this LTE 4G stuff. I understand what it is, I don't understand why they're making so many products when it's not even available everywhere. Also companies will charge you even if you don't use it, because your device supports it. I say stick with 3G, but make it better. Don't introduce something new if it's not even available everywhere! Jeez.

Cell Phone Chaos!

Don't get me wrong, I love the newest and coolest thing! It's great, but it seems like no matter what piece of technology you get there is an updated, upgraded, or new version available. What I'm frustrated at primarily with, is the cell phone industry. Just a month or so ago, Motorola released the Droid Bionic for Verizon. They've been talking about this phone for over a year now, hype was huge! Best processor, screen, memory, it has it all....until now. Next month, Motorola will release the Droid Razr....just fyi, it's better than the Bionic. I'm not saying innovation is a bad thing, I just feel over-whelmed with what's out there. I'm slightly bias towards Apple but they do it right! One model of a product for a period of time, but update it frequently to keep it competitive and comparable with what's out there. Plus, these phones are expensive! An unlocked phone, that has all the bells and whistles can run anywhere from $400-$900.....for a phone people! So we sign the contracts so we get the lowest possible price! However within a few weeks...your new phone is now a dinosaur! It's just silly. I say cell phone manufactures should make a couple models a year but continuously upgrade the devices. Personal issue I have, you probably disagree....oh well. Ha! Leave comments, and give me ideas for future posts!

Big Month For Apple

Well it's end of the second week of October and it has already been quite an eventful month for Apple.

October 4
Apple has their keynote address, where they announced.....nothing new! Sure there is the iPhone 4S and now a white iPod touch, but that's it. I'm intrigued why they didn't unveil anything redesigned or brand new. This is the first time in 10 years were nothing was redesigned or new tech was announced. I will say price cuts on the iPod and iPhone models is very good news however. I'm also intrigued by the iPhone 4S' "Siri" technology. A personal assistant that doesn't just listen to your commands, it knows what you mean to say! Watch the full keynote for a demo at Apple's website. The new iPhone also has an upgraded processor and enhanced camera, nothing major, but worth noting.

October 5
Steve Jobs former CEO and newest member to Apple's board passes away. Already covered this in past blog posts. Still unfortunate to hear about this.

October 12
iOS 5 was released on iPod touches, iPhones, and iPads! I have it on my iPod and iPad and I'm loving it. Notification center is a great way to manage all my tweets, notifications, weather, stocks, and on iPhones it manages texts and voicemails! There are so many additions to iOS that I can't cover them all but check it out at Apple's website. Watch the videos!

It's so busy for them now, I wonder how the rest of the year will be like for the folks at Apple. Let me know what you think! You liking iOS 5? Getting iPhone 4S? Leave a comment below!

Truly amazing! Love this!

Steve Jobs Dead at 56.

A sad day for Apple

I'm sure all of you are aware that former CEO of Apple, Steve Jobs past away today, Wednesday October 5. Jobs had been battling cancer for years and it finally got him. It's so unfortunate. Steve was a roll model to me and I still look up to him for his vision of Apple. He made the company what it is today. He will be truly missed. RIP Steve Jobs.
