iphone battery1 300x225 iPhone 4s Coming Third While Android Phones Take The Top Two SpotThere has always been a constant niggling about how bad these smart phones are when it comes to their battery life. One should not forget the kind of task these gadgets are capable of. Though these devices are really smart bringing the functionality of a Desktop Computer in to your palms, they do need some serious energy to keep on with it. Once out of battery they are as dumb a machine can be.

We can’t obviously compare these to the first or second generations mobile devices. For example the Nokia phones that lasted days with a single recharge. Mobile back then were communication tools, SMS, calls, radio were all the high end features they offered. With the iPhone, Android devices, things have evolved, your mobile phones are pocket PCs. You can’t expect them to last for 7 days on a single recharge, however one can expect the manufacturers to build more powerful batteries. If not days, they should at least last for a day.

123592314 Steve Jobs Biography Already Selling At Heathrow Airport In London Before Official Release October 24

Steve Jobs was great, so great that his death left a massive impact on every one around. To us Steve Jobs was more of a Mindset than just a man. Everyone who knew about the man, anyone who had ever used an Apple product.

Steve Jobs book, the biography was certainly one of those that everyone anxiously waited for and with his death, the demand has grown by leaps and bounds.

 iPhone 5 Release Makes Japan’s KDDI Pull Off Android Site

What could be more demeaning than the fact that someone takes off your product in an anticipation that another product is ready to surface in the market. I would find it absolutely lousy and discouraging but then that’s how businesses work, you promote what will sell. Especially when both products compete severely with each other, and both are bound to make you huge profits. I am talking about the Android and the Apple iOS based iPhone.

image thumb25 Google Acquires Motorola, Why Exactly?

Riddled by the recent happenings of Microsoft firing ferociously at it, Google for some odd reason appears to be on wobbly grounds. The entire issue from this to the Google Plus saga paints quite a different picture that we usually see about Google. Not that controversies and a few hiccups here and there are new to Google, but the search giant has never really been on the defensive. Not until now.

That is exactly what the hype is all around though I doubt this messenger ousting any of the existing instant messaging apps on a mobile device. Had it been that way, many other apps would have already got  a better chance to oust these mobile applications.
