I keep up with pretty much all of the latest Techno stuff, whether it be new style Smart phones, iPhones, laptops, Surface Pros, or Amazon’s large variety of E-readers — etc etc.
Certainly don’t know everything, by a long shot, but I make an effort to keep an eye on new products coming out especially those that may assist me in my business career.
Such an amazing variety and breadth of different tools – some more helpful than others of course. It is hard to believe some of the things now available to the public, both for personal and business use.
Take the new Kindle Oasis E-readers for example – not only durable but having a number of advantages. Take note thought it is the most expensive by far one yet. It is a radical redesign of the top-selling e-readers with a base price of $449 (includes a Wi-Fi connection and no lock-screen ads).
Now that is about five times the price of a standard Kindle. So what do you get for all that extra cash? Worthwhile to check out if you are a keen and prolific reader (as I am) who doesn’t like to carry a heap of books with you when you travel.
Now when it comes to Smartphones you really need to check out the Huawei P9 – which is said to be the equivalent of a double-barrelled shotgun (photos instead of bullets are shot though).
Chinese smartphone makers are now really turning up the heat on both Apple and Samsung, with this latest iPhone killer, Huawei’s P9.
It has two 12-mexapixel cameras. Why two? One shoots colour and the other black & white images, with software combing the two into a single image – fascinating (well it was to me).
The P9 has a great unibody and a grippy finish and has a larger (than the iPhone 6) display (5.2inch against 4.7inch). Will not go on and on about the great things on this phone, enough to say its well worth anyone checking it out!
Free Tool for making Smartphone Apps — from none other than Microsoft! Okay so building your own apps takes not only need know-how but resources. Microsoft is now making it easier for any who is into doing that (not me, by a long shot) thanks to a free tool called Xamarin.
Microsoft says the free tool helps developers build apps for both smartphones and tablets and does so in three different ecospheres too.
Now I will not pretend to understand much more than the basics here (flat out doing that too I do not mind admitting) but several of my friends are into designing and implementing their own apps and are thrilled at this news – you may be too?
