The iPhone 4 – New Features, New Design, Brand New All in One Gadget

The new iPhone is finally here. More technology packed then ever before, it sets new benchmarks for other mobile phones manufacturers that have been overwhelmed by the success of Apple's iPhone.

But I guess you're more interested in the features of then new phone rather than the impact it has on the business world so let me share with you the novelties it brings along.

Design:

The new iPhone is thinner, sleeker and better looking then its predecessors. The stainless steel looks good and refined giving it a more futuristic look. The metal buttons add to the overall feel of sturdiness without dramatically increasing the weight. It is heavier then the iPhone 3GS by only 0.1 ounces and it feels great in the hand.

Technology:

But the most obvious improvement is by far the new screen. The "Retina" is a 3.5 inch display which looks absolutely superb, mainly because its pixels are only 78 micrometers wide. It has four times more pixels then the previous version and it is by far the best display I have ever seen on a handheld device. The zoom is flawless and not a single bit of detail is lost in the process.

The "camera system" (as Steve Jobs called it) is comprised of a 5MP capturing device on the back and a VGA one on the front. The image can be shifted between cameras at any time during a video call. Apple calls this "Face Time" and although it has been praised by company officials it is pretty hard to believe it will revolutionize mobile communications or set a trend for other manufacturers to follow. It is undetected a clever feature but it is overshadowed by other technological marvels such as the flawless screen.

iMovie:

iMovie is an app that allows complex video editing like nothing I have seen before on a mobile phone. You can trim out a section of a movie, add a musical soundtrack to any clip, insert pictures in movies and many more. It costs $ 4.99 in the Apple applications store but it is really worth the money.

Conclusion:

The iPhone 4 is a great device with major improvements from the previous versions. Technology packed but also a looker it will unduly become a favorite among geeks and fashion savvy teens alike. A true all in one that certainly describes your attention.

Beachfront Vs Inland Real Estate Ownership In Miami

Miami real estate is one of the fast-selling and bought after pieces of real estate in the market nowdays since it is considered by many to be one of the best places to live or vacation in.

One of the reasons as to why a lot of people would like to invest on a real estate in Miami is because of all the other things that people will be getting when they do decide to purchase a real estate property in Miami. These Miami real estate owners know that they are not only getting the property, but they also get to benefit from all the other things that goes along with the property, such as the pristine beaches and the culture in Miami.

Owning a real estate property in Miami can be a real treat, especially for people who are very much into the whole Miami culture and lifestyle. However, there are a lot of real estate property types to choose from, ranging from condos to hotels. Although there are a variety of real estate properties in Miami, two of the more ideal property types that people can purchase are the beachfront and inland real estate properties. These two property types are very different from each other, although they both offer great real estate properties for potential buyers. In order to be able to decide which one bests suits your taste, you need to know what makes each of these properties unique.

One of the things that make the two property types so different is the aesthetic aspect that these property types offer its potential investors. Of the two, the beachfront real estate properties offer the better esthetic quality since the property is situated along the coastline along the coast of Miami.

These beachfront real estate properties is made more beautiful by the fact that the beaches that made Miami so bought after and popular is the backyard of such properties. All you need to do is look out your window and you can see the beaches that draw such diverse crowds into Miami.

Inland real estate properties, however, although are beautiful in their own right, still can not match the aesthetic beauty that the beaches add to the different beachfront real estate properties. It is one thing to have a beautiful house with nice amenities in a nice neighborhood, but it is another to have white sandy beaches very close to your home.

Another thing that differentiates these two property types is the level of their appeal or popularity with the different investors and potential buyers of the real estate properties. Beachfront real estate properties are moreought after than inland real estate properties since these beachfront properties are very close to the beaches, which is the major reason for its appeal. Inland properties may be closer to other structures, but people do not wish to live or vacation in Miami because of the malls and the stores in the city. People wish to come to Miami mostly for the beaches.

Although both real estate properties can be used by its owners to earn profit, especially if they do not intend to live in Miami permanently, beachfront properties are still the more popular choice for people who want to rent out condos or houses in Miami, especially for those people who are just vacationing. Vacationers go to Miami for the beaches, and if they are able to live near one, then the better it is for them.

Whatever real estate property you may choose to buy, it is important to remember that these types of properties, especially if they are bought after in the market, may cost you a lot of money if you plan on investing on Miami real estate. However, inland real estate properties tend to be more reasonably priced, as compared with beachfront property types. The high cost of owning a beachfront property is the price that any potential buyer have to pay in exchange for all the perks that goes along with the property.

Create canvas print

A nice photo, printed on canvas and framed as per your choice, is the right option for a nice New Year Gift for the occasion. A gemstone will not be as precious as a canvas print of the favorite photograph. In case your friend stays far away then you can send a roled-out print.

Some photo-sharing sites help create memoirs out of your memories and photobook is one of them.

Personalized mugs

Get a nice photo printed on the mug and place the order as per your choice. The photo sharing site will print that photo and create a nice magic mug as New Year Gift to your kid.

Name Calendars

This is the most special New Year Gift. One can choose among the various photographs to be printed for different months on the calendar. Put the names to be printed on each page of the calendar. These names may be of different person or for the same. The income will be worth adoring and worth a million dollar gift for the closest person on earth. In fact, you can simply place the calendar on the work-desk of the person concerned-for a beautiful surprise.

These are some of those personalized New Year gifts which are meant to strengthen your relationship, friendship and whatever relation you are in.

Old School Online Gaming

Ever wondered what your parents and the adults played for fun back in their day? Or before the existence of Nintendo Wii's, Playstations, and World of Warcraft, what were the games that people played with the computer? Online gaming back then was not as high-tech as what you play now but they delivered the same amount of fun that today's online games give you. Take a journey down old time geekery and see what was deemed as hi-tech back then:

1. # TradeWars 2002
A space game developed in 1984. In TW2002, the player is a galaxy trader where the main objective is to gain control of a limited set and amount of resources, as you travel in different sectors of the galaxy. Using your earned wealth in trading, you can upgrade your spaceship, get better weapons and fight for control of planets and starbases.

2. # MUDs
Also known as Multi-User Dungeon, this is a text-based multiplayer real-time virtual world that started in 1978. It combined elements such as role-playing games, hack and slash, player versus player, interactive fiction, and online chat with a fantasy setting populated by fictional races and monsters. The objective of the game is to slay monsters, explore a fantasy world, complete quests, go on adventures, create a story by role-playing, and advance the character.

3. # MUSHes
MUSH, generally called a Multi-User Shared Hallucination, is somewhat of a text-based Second Life where you can create anything you want, be anyone you want, and do anything that you want in a multi-user game. With the popularity of MUDs in the 1980s, many variations emerged such as TinyMUD in 1989. MUSH was then created by Larry Foard who used TinyMUD's code and added a different programming language.

4. # Hunt
The old school Before Doom, created in 1985 by Conrad C. Huang and Gregory S. Couch, is represented using ASCII characters on an 80×24 terminal screen. Hunt is a multiplayer game where each player wanders around a maze, killing off other players using guns, bombs, and slime. Players can also form a team. The maze, when destroyed, regenerates over time, during which "deflectors" appear, changing the direction of the projectile. Sometimes a "wandering bomb" appears, exploding when contact is made.

5. # Empire 3.84
Considered as the grandfather of all Internet games, Empire 3.84 is a risk-like conquer-the-world game with its original version appearing in 1971 on a PDP-11/45 mainframe computer at Harvard University. It gained popularity for being cited as one of Sid Meier's inspiration for Civilization PC game series.

6. # BBS Door Games
Since the technology in the old days was pretty much text-based, online games back then usually were also text-based games played over the modem on an amateur-run bulleting board system (BBS). Supporting only one phone line, there was not WiFi back then, so players usually had to take turns when playing, but still they can compete against each other.

7. # FIBS
The First Internet Backgammon Server pretty much tells us what it is, it's the first backgammon server on the Internet. Started in 1992, it has become one of the most popular online games to play backgammon against other players around the globe.
