Apple iPhone 4S unveiled

iPhone 4S is no doubt faster than iPhone 4! Should you upgrade it or not?

iPhone 4S was officially revealed on October 4 by Tim Cook. Everybody was expecting an iPhone 5 but instead Apple Inc. startled us by announcing the iPhone 4S.

Apple iPhone 4S releases

iPhone 4S has many advantages over its predecessor iPhone 4. Lets take a look what those advantages are down below.

Looks and display:

iPhone 4S carries the same looks of iPhone 4. You won’t notice any major changes in its design. It has the same size and weight. The display too remains the same i.e. a 3.5 inch 960×640 pixel retina display.

Powerful new camera:

Apple iPhone 4S Camera

Yes, the iPhone 4S does hype-up the camera features and believe me each and every minute detail is captured, so make sure you photoshop your pic if you have tiny pimples on your face. Seriously, iPhone 4S comes with an 8 megapixel camera with autofocus and flash and a CMOS sensor to brighten up your pics. The new sensor allows 73 percent more light and will certainly make your images more lively even in dark light conditions. Also the integration of a new Infra-red filter means your pictures will define more colour. You can now shoot videos in 1080p HD and the built-in image processor just makes face detection a lot more fun!

Fully boosted Processor:

Apple iPhone 4S A5 chip

iPhone 4S runs on Apple’s A5 dual-core 1GHz processor and has a dual-core graphics unit too. And the crunchy part is iPhone 4S comes with Apple’s latest OS i.e. the iOS 5. Many people are excited about iOS 5 and what its new features are and we will soon come up with an article to discuss about the same. By the way Apple says iPhone 4S operates twice as fast and offers graphics seven times faster than the iPhone 4. And you know what i say, i say “Try to beat that, rivals”.

Welcome to Siri (The new voice assistant)

Apple iPhone 4S Siri Voice assistant

Siri is a female voice assistant featured in Apple’s latest smartphone, the iPhone 4S. Consider this feature similar to the Google Voice Search, but a bit more Apple. Just press down your Home button on the iPhone 4S and command Siri to do anything by your voice. Such as you can add new reminders, search for a destination or book tickets anywhere around the world by just speaking to Siri. Isn’t it ubercool? I found this feature very innovative and it performs searches with so much efficiency.

Battery Backup:

Apple claims the phone can offer 8 hours of talktime over 3G, 6 hours of browsing on 3G, 10 hours of video playback and 40 hours of music playback. I think this much battery is more than enough if you are traveling countries (i.e. by plane of course, hehe).

Not a 4G, but definitely a HSDPA

Apple iPhone 4 already offered HSDPA connectivity but iPhone 4S is

just twice the step ahead of it. iPhone 4S now fully supports HSDPA 14.4 which means you get download speeds upto a whopping 14.4Mbps and a 5.8Mbps upload speed. I mean what the hell, that’s brilliant.

Release Date and Price:

As of now, iPhone 4s is available to preorder. However, it is expected to be officially released on October 14 (in U.S. only). iPhone 4S is as usual available in colours of black and white. iPhone 4S 16GB model costs $199, 32GB model costs $299 and 64GB model costs $399.

Why should you buy it?

Apple iPhone 4S looks slick

Personally i think iPhone 4S packs a lot more than what it looks like. The experience of Siri, an improvised camera, high internet speeds where battery backup has not been compromised at all and not to mention the debut of iOS 5, i mean that’s big! My personal opinion is it is a must buy for every Apple boy, not even is it faster than the iPhone 4 but there has been a lot features newly introduced in this smartphone.

So what do you think? Share your thoughts by dropping a comment. Do you think you will buy iPhone 4S or will wait for iPhone 5?

Except you’re letting people know when you’re leaving your car unattended with the exact make/model, they know you have an iPhone which means you have a ton of money, probably a computer and you’re also a dumbass because you leave your car unlocked because you have a stupid app that let’s people know when you’re leaving your valuables unattended.

New iPhone app, Pepsi Loot. Get freebies for an entry in restaurants!

I have some good news for all Pepsi lovers who love to enter any venue which contains Pepsi products that now they can earn rewards in the process thanks to the newly released iPhone app — Pepsi Loot.

Pepsi Loot

This app made with help of Pepsi will allow iPhone users to locate Pop Spots (Pepsi-selling food service venue) in the Base section of the app and can visit the venue to earn rewards. iPhone users can also use a detailed version of map which allows them to filter pop spots or such venues by cuisine type. Users can access a more detailed map that allows them to filter Pop Spots by cuisine type.

Once accumulated enough rewards points they can visit Loot Section to view various goodies available and watch music videos from featured artists. For every three checking or visiting three such pop spots, each consumers will earn a free digital song download at the Pepsi Loot Store.

Some restaurants will offer freebies to Pepsi Loot users or consumers, so consumers and customers checking in a Pop Spots may find that certain venues or pop spots offer free Pepsi with the purchase of an entry. It should be interesting to see how consumers respond to the one-off brand-specific location app.

Pepsi is now also a non-beverage partner of Foursquare. Though the terms are still being worked out, Foursquare’s Tristan Walker tells us that they will be conducting several experiments with retailers to see if they can move more Pepsi products.

He also clarified that Foursquare isn’t involved with the Pepsi Loot app. So any user using this great app can share his /her reviews with us about the application.

iPhone’s Tiger Text Application gives Privacy Rights back to Sender

This is a Guest Article by Brandon Gerson from NYC

With the recent launch of the Tiger Text Application for the iPhone (Blackberry and Droid soon to follow), texters can now rest assured that their text messages will only be read by intended parties. This new app allows the text message’s sender to give the message a lifespan, ranging from one minute, to multiple days. After the recipient opens the message, a timer begins a countdown, deleting the message from both parties’ phones and the server upon expiration. Like a modern day Mission Impossible, the messages self destruct, and cease to exist in a matter of moments, keeping the text message confidential.

Most bloggers are relating the application to Tiger Wood’s infidelity. They refer to the scandalous text messages he sent his mistresses, and claim that this product would have saved his tail. Ironically, this app would have prevented his messages from leaking to his wife or the press, but the application is named after the animals which are notoriously difficult to track. As convenient as this app may be for cheaters, Tiger Text keeps all of the text messages sent between users private, regardless of their motive.

I cannot recall a time when I have sent a text message that I wanted retransmitted…but it happens. Whether it is a business idea, a drunken text, spreading gossip, or just a friendly chat, I would prefer my point be understood by the recipient, and the message not passed on.

The Internet has created limitless global communication, and with the social media phenomenon and new startups as strong as ever, the ability share information has never been easier.

With privacy rights constantly being challenged by free speech on the Internet, I am glad that there is finally an application that will prevent my text messages from ever going public.
