An Apology

Hey guys, I'm really sorry I haven't posted in so long now, my schedule's been really crazy and I've had several exams too. I should be back to posting here in a few days though, and I'll cover all the stuff I missed since I last posted.
Thanks for bearing with me,

Samsung DoubleTime

AT&T has announced the DoubleTime, a new entry-level smartphone from Samsung that should appeal to messaging fanatics. The DoubleTime has two touchscreen displays and a flip out QWERTY keyboard.
The DoubleTime has 3.2-inch, HVGA (320 x 480 pixel) touchscreen displays on both the inside and outside. The inside of the flip contains a four-row QWERTY keyboard and shortcut keys for menu, home, back, and search. The DoubleTime is powered by a 600MHz single-core processor, and has 260MB of internal storage. It supports microSD cards of up to 32GB in capacity, and comes with a 2GB card pre-installed. The back of the phone features a 3.2 megapixel camera with camcorder functions.
The DoubleTime runs Android 2.2 Froyo with Samsung's TouchWiz interface. It will be available later this year in a white and pink color scheme. Pricing has yet to be announced.

Your opinion on the iPhone 4S

So what do you think about the iPhone 4S? Do you think it's a great improvement? A disappointment? Why do you think what you think?

Let me know in the comments below or in an email to

iPhone 4S New Features

On October 4th Apple unveiled their newest addition to the iPhone lineup, the iPhone 4S. Many of us, myself included, were hoping for something more than just a slightly heavier iPhone 4 with features that have already been on Android phones for the past 6ish months, so the iPhone 4S was a letdown to many. Nonetheless, I have no doubt that the iPhone 4S is a great phone and that many people will be willing to buy it, especially now that it's available on Sprint.

Here's a list of new features:

  • 1080p HD Video Recording w/ stabilization
  • 8MP Camera with an advanced color and IR sensor, faster shutter, & face detection
  • Apple A5 Dual-Core 1GHz processor
  • CDMA & GSM capable (World phone)
  • Siri voice assistant
  • 4G Capable
  • Improved antenna for fewer dropped calls and better reception
  • Longer battery life
Note: I didn't include any of the features being added in iOS 5 because they aren't iPhone 4S specific.

Let's Talk iPhone Roundup

So as you may have heard Apple held their "Let's Talk iPhone" event today at which several announcements were made, the most notable being about the new iPhone 4S.
Here's the official CompJunkies roundup: (The iPhone 4S is being omitted because I'm writing a separate article about it soon)

At the "Let's Talk iPhone" event earlier this day, Tim Cook made the announcement that Mac is the number one selling desktop and notebook in the USA.

Apple stated that there have been no hardware changes to the iPod touch, as many were hoping, but rather the availability of a white iPod touch. In addition, Apple mentioned that the iPod nano is getting some new clock skins and a Nike+ adapter.

Coinciding with the release of iOS 5, Apple is planning to launch their could service, iCloud, on October 12th while their new service, iTunes Match, will be available at the "end of October" for $24.99 a year.

iOS 5
This is one of Apple's most significant iOS upgrades to date. They've added many new features and apps, here are just a few of them:

  • News Stand - A native app designed to facilitate your newspaper and magazine reading habits.
  • Improved notification system - Strikingly similar to Android's, in my opinion.
  • Siri Assistant - Your iPhone is now akin to that of the Starship Enterprise's computer!
  • Launch your camera app straight from the lockscreen
  • Faster web browsing
  • Native todo list app
  • Twitter integration
  • iMessage - Similar to RIM's BBM service
  • Photo editing straight from the photo app
  • PC/Mac free setup
  • Over the Air (OTA) updates
  • iCloud integration
  • Family location services
