In the face of its first major news event in the post-Jobs era, the announcement of the iPhone 4S, Apple fell flat. Why? Mostly because the tech blogging culture that has grown up with the resurgence of Apple expected an iPhone 5. Traditional media fell flat too. Truth be told, many expected the iPhone 5 four months ago at WWDC.

Maybe Apple simply plans to have a 24 month release schedule for the iPhone? It does fit nicely with the 2-year agreement required by most carriers. Consider the timeline. The original iPhone was released in June 2007. Then the 3G was released about a year later, July 2008. Early iPhone adopters couldn?t upgrade to the 3G as they were still under a 24 month contract. Not a good experience for Apple customers, or more importantly mobile network operators, which have to heavily?subsidize?it for hundreds of dollars. Which for all of Apple?s successes, and and control of the supply chain, it is not mobile network operator. The next release, a year later in June 2009, the 3GS was a refresh and much more contract friendly. The all new iPhone 4 was released two years after the iPhone 3G, in June 2010. Leaving earlier adopters of the iPhone 3G at the end of their contract, and again in a much better position to upgrade. An iPhone 5 release in June 2012 would fit nicely with iPhone 4 users upgrading when their contracts expire.

clean-lcdLCD screens are everywhere. The most sensitive ones are probably on your HDTV, computer monitor or notebook. However, many smart phones, tablets and e-readers have non-glare or oleophobic (grease resistant) coatings on their LCD screens. While you may be tempted to grab a bottle of window cleaner, chances are the ammonia in it will eventually remove the coatings, or even cloud the plastic screen. Here are 5 alternatives to glass cleaner:

  1. Hands down the best choice, whether it’s finger prints or dust, is a microfiber cloth. Avoid using liquid if you can. Clean in a circular motion. To avoid permanent damage use a light touch. TIP: Washing your microfiber cloths with liquid or sheet fabric softeners will reduce their effectiveness. Read the rest of this entry »

Years ago, the two biggest factors when building a new desktop computer are price and performance.? Today, there is a new added component to consider when putting together a machine, which is energy efficiency.

Modern computers must be powerful, cheap and equally importantly, they must be green!? Computers that use less power promote green initiatives within small to large corporations and also provide financial relief from costly power bills at the end of the month.? We went out in search of a good compromise of power and energy efficiency which led us to pursue the new AMD Fusion E-350 processor APU which supports faster performance than an Intel Atom chip while only consuming the same amount of juice.
