Apple copied its iOS 5.0 update from the list of Android features

It's a Sunday and I'm totally free. So, I was chasing few tech news to its latest. And found, all news on tech at Google news was attached with a word, 'iOS 5.0'. As like its a tradition, news on Apple and its devices are more interesting to any one, it forced me too, to review it. And a list of features pop-up.

It was mentioning that over 200 new features are added to this latest version of iOS to its predecessor. But that list was little surprising as it was comprising features like notification center, tab browsing, gaming community, instant access to camera, advanced alarm and calendar activity, clou d music, etc. And that disappointed my reaction on this new technology. As all this advanced features are available from the very first public release of Android; version 1.6. And those were not the part of iOS till its latest publicly released versions. With this version its now there, included. Till the current version the notifications were available as just a red button, and now they copied the concept of single center dedicated to notifications, by tapping the upper status bar only. The feature of fast access to camera is available from the day the camera introduced in Android devices. The release cycle is also following the Android's market strategy. And the GUI of some applications also changed according to the Android UI. And they say it the powerful OS till date; I mean WTF, 'the powerful OS till date'!!

The survey says the iPad uses internet and battery, the most than other smart OSes. Even the set of Google's extraordinary services are not available; I mean what's the role of an smart devices if this outstanding features by Google are not there. The Android comprises all of them, even the latest feature helps us searching by just capturing the image of it, and also  the power of embedded gmail and docs. And to me, in near future the Apple mobile devices will be converted in to the costly Android alike devices, offering same features at different platform; as they have done with this version of iOS 5.0.

However, the above posted material was based on my analysis and point of view. But you can post your view as by commenting on this post!!

Why we need 'Smartphone'!!?

The topics, currently booming around the world are having one thing common and that is the term 'Smartphone'. Everyone, starting from a 10 years old child to the old-age person, are willing to talk on this. But my point is that what's the need of this; I mean <b>is really there a need for one to even think to go for buying this kind of sophisticated devices?

Firstly there was Apple's iPhone, only then the devices by BlackBerry and HTC, which are known as the business phone. And Nokia for simple communications. But now-a-days each company, irrespective of their size are interested in making their own space in the market of Smartphones. The arrival of Android and its business strategies are the major reason of this booming trend. Considering only Indian mobile phone manufactures like Micromax and Spice have made this Android based smartphone as cheaper as the Nokia's dominating mobile phones having simple mobile functionality with camera and music player features. Thus there is a huge rush after this(smartphone).
But my question is also laying here as, "WHY SMARTPHONE? WHAT'S THE NEED OF IT?". Before buying a smartphone, bought just a week ago, I had this query and its still running on my mind. But I found some reason from my own experience on using my Android based phone. So, with this post I'll try to present some of the thoughts running on my mind.

As we all make use of internet for carrying out any work and Google's contribution in making that happen. Now-A-days each of us can't think of a moment without accessing any of the Google's service or product. We are engaged with either Google's search, gmail, docs, blogspot, dictionary or with any other service; but the point is it have attached to our daily life and accepted as an important part of our lifestyle. All products and its features have so much for an individual to deal with; irrespective of their age group. But one thing is raising a point here is that all this services are internet based, and we need a computer device(mostly, Windows based) for getting connected with internet. And we all know the price range of this beautiful devices; I mean those are quite costly. Here I think Google are on a way to prove theirself as a powerful organization, again. And have joined the race to become a technology major in web as well as in advance devices and want to fight with existing majors like Apple, Nokia and Microsoft. But the point is, up to what extent we need this kind of devices for regular, day-to-day activities?

My answer would be more on a positive side but I'm also against it with some underlying reasons. As we all know this 21st century is era known of powerful information technology and its affection to every life. And to make survival easier: we all can experience it everywhere. And according to me this smartphone can act as an easiest gateway for becoming more powerful in this new world. We can have an instance of all services provided by Google or any other provider. At a touch of our finger we can access all of them, even in a smartest way. The communication, for the business purpose or personal, have become greatest. We can use our smartphone at shop for getting others review on it and understanding the pros-cons of that thing, before buying it. Prior to  shopping we can arrange list of items or add an alarm for future buys. Although of this much of tasks with the help of powerful processor we can listen to music/fm and even can stay connected with friends in the social medium. Or like me, create posts for your blog and later on can add it to your Wordpress or blogspot or even to your tumblr. We can also stay updated to the news without a need to subscribe to it. Use email or create/delete important business documents or you can write your book or read any soft books/ebooks. In all this smartphone concept acts as a micro laptop. And provides same functionality, reliability and mobility comparing to any latest personal computer devices available in the market. And all this available cheaper than a regular Windows based laptop. I'd like to make a point that as Google's Android or Apple's MAC, both are based on Unix/Linux and this makes them most secure than any Microsoft's windows OS based devices. That's all, I think all you expect from an device can be fulfilled by this extraordinary mobile devices.

As two sides of any coin the above mentioned features have something that makes against it. We must provide an internet connection to use this smart devices up to its potential. But an internet service is a very gaunt service in its nature that it comprises all that stuff which are inappropriate for the child. Also the loss of privacy is the major concern with this kind of active devices. However the chances of violation of copyright or patent is much higher as everyone does share their status as a update. However the above mentioned cons can be avoided but one can't be which is the major concern. This is the higher level of 'RADIOACTIVITY', as most of the times we stay connected with the internet.

However I've not designed this post to restrict you from buying the devices you like. But this post focuses more on facts, what I've analyzed and experienced. I also have a smartphone which have all those parameters I've discussed. Many of the mobile device manufacture have focused on this disadvantages and eventually have designed their devices free from many cons and some are on their way. I insist you to buy the devices as per your linking and access it and feel powered with this devices but before buying please have an opinion or read review on this parameters and then go for biting. Yes, smartphone are the smartest than our traditional high-end computer devices and are very mobile even. Go ahead and have a fun.

define: VAIO

Since, the purchase of  my VAIO CR Notebook during the summer of 2008, the plot behind the well-known name 'VAIO' was merging with other curiosities at my mind. I surfed the web but that didn't work that time. But after keep-on searching from 2008, I finally succeeded here, now. One wiki-page is the helper. So, with this post I'm pasting a portion of the actual information available till date.

Why we call it "VAIO"?

VAIO is a sub-brand used for many of Sony's computer products. Originally an acronym of Video Audio Integrated Operation, this was amended to Visual Audio Intelligence Organizer in 2008 to celebrate the brand's 10th anniversary. The branding was created by Timothy Hanley to distinguish items that integrate consumer audio and video with conventional computing products, which functioned as a regular computer and a miniature entertainment center.

The Beautiful and Impressive VAIO Logo has a Creative Intense:

The VAIO logo also represents the integration of analog and digital technology with the 'VA' representing an analog wave and the 'IO' representing a digital binary code.

Although Sony made computers in the 1980s exclusively for the Japanese market, the company withdrew from the computer business around the turn of the decade.
