iOS 6 released for downloading


iOS 6 official version is available for downloading from 19th, September. Devices like iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPad 2, the new iPad, iPod . etc can be downloading via iTunes or devices themselves to upgrade to iOS 6.

You may be familiar with 200 new features with iOS 6, but do you think makes much sense to upgrade to iOS 6 for your device? For example, iPhone 4 doe not have siri, features about siri make no sense to iPhone 4 users.

Problems like wifi connection is not as steady as iOS5, but it is said that the problem has nothing to do with the new iOS but resulted from the Apple server, anyway, this problem has been resolved. But it is understandable, even though a few beta versions have been released for developers but no doubt that problems are there, and solutions will be found meanwhile, and we know solutions always more than problems. Apple can made all things go well and fix in a decent way, that is the art of Apple products.

Besides, about the new Apple map, no Google map now but users are used to use Google map and they do not like the new map yet. Will the map of different location will be better and better? Need to wait for some time to confirm. No need to worry too much, as Apple is good at making people like its products all the time.

More problems or bug would be found when a new iOS ver

sion released, I guess iOS 6.0.1 will be released soon, too~~

Anyway, if you ask me, I will definitely upgrade to the iOS 6 as I will not buy the iPhone 5 in recent days and I really want to see the new features with my 4S… (Read how to convert DVD to iPhone 5 for your copy protected movie DVDs)

iPhone 5 preorders 2 million in 24 hours

Apple announced an actual number for its latest iPhone preorders- 2million in 24 hours. That is twice of iPhone 4S last year.

I think that is not surprising. Even the public said the iPhone 5 is no that good as expected, that is not a problem for selling lots of it over the world.

What is that? And why?

The brand. iPhone 5 may not win itself in some ways but it is still one of the best smartphone in the world currently, and most apple fans or other fans like to purchase one to use, to learn the art of Apple style.

Tablet vs Laptop

Did you buy a tablet? iPad or Samsung Galaxy Tab or Kindle? Do you still use your laptop?

Tablets have become quite popular thanks to their extreme portability, easy to use interfaces and the wide range of ways they can be used. In many ways, they can almost replace a laptop for someone on the go.


Input Method

Tablets do not have a physical keyboard, need to touch the virtual on the screen to input text or words. Laptop with physical keyboard is more convenient for inputting words and with more sensitive finger feelings. While Tablets virtual keyboard is limited and not as convenient as that of laptop, for example, when need to enter numbers, then need to shift to number panel. To some degree, that cost more time and not very flexible or convenient.

Result: Laptops for those that write a lot, tablets for those that do more point interaction.


This is the most important advantage for tablets. Tablets are convenient to take or hold by hands and would not take much space on our bags. Tablets generally are below 10-inch screen, and without physical keyboards, all make tablets are so easy and convenient to take.

Result: Tablets

Storage Capacity

In order to keep their size and costs down, tablet PCs have had to rely on new solid state storage memory as a means to store programs and data. While these have the potential for faster access and low power usage, they have one major disadvantage in the amount of files they can store. By comparison, most laptops still use traditional hard drives that hold far much more. Extremely affordable netbooks still have 160 gigabytes of storage which allows for ten times the amount of data as the most affordable tablets.

Result: Laptops

Battery Life

Tablets are design for efficiency because of the low power requirements of their hardware components. In fact, the majority of the interior of a tablet is taken up by the battery. In comparison, laptops use more powerful hardware. The average laptop would only run for roughly three to four hours with a few systems able to stretch it out to eight hours but that still less than a tablet. This means that tablets can achieve all day usage which few laptops can achieve.

Result: Tablets


Laptops could run steadily even with multi tasks. Tablets are not that steady during multi tasks running. Besides, some software cannot be installed on tablets like that of to laptops. Even popular or famous software would release applications to android or iOS tablets, however, that does not mean the same to that of laptop. Software runs on laptop can perform in the largest degree and users could run the software with most convenient user experience with larger screen size and flexible keyboard input method.

Result: Laptops


Tablets are relatively new to the market and as a result, they tend to carry a fairly high price premium for the new technologies they have installed in them. The average starting price for a tablet PC seems to have settled around $499. By comparison, there are laptop computers that can be found for as little as $300 to $400. Of course, most people are probably not going to be looking at the least expensive laptop. The average price of the laptop is more around $650 which is slightly more expensive than the mid range tablet PC cost. Laptops still have the advantage over tablets though if you look at equivalent performance and features. After all, netbooks start below $300 but can generally handle all the same tasks as a tablet, just in a not as easy to carry or use format.

Result: Tie

Stand Alone Device

This category is describing a situation where a tablet PC would be your only computer system. It isn’t something that many people would necessarily think about when looking at the devices but it is pretty critical. A laptop is a fully self contained system that one can use fully as a computer system in terms of loading data and programs onto and backing up. Many tablet PCs actually require an additional computer system beyond the tablet for backing up the device or even activating it. The iPad 2 is a good example of this as the first thing a user is required to do is hook it up to a PC to activate it.

Result: Laptop


Tablets are good and play big role in long way trip or for fun. But I do not think it can take place of what laptop works in our daily lives. Maybe I should not compare them as they are different kinds of products in some degree. And we can see, we like to use tablets and laptops in our daily life to make our work more convenient. Or we can say that tablets are for fun and non-inputting works while laptop is more for formal works. Tablets like T-shirt, for causal style while laptop is like a suite.
