Nintendo Switch Online Play

06/06/2017 Main

Hey everyone, and a warm welcome back to my computers and electronics blog. I haven’t had much time to post lately, thanks to getting a launch version of the Nintendo Switch a couple months ago. I love this machine, it allows you to play anywhere in your house (or somewhere else entirely for that matter) and the whole console is extremely user friendly and easy to master. Plus, Nintendo has finally nailed online play. Not only have they managed to make a great console that works for home and mobile gaming, they have an online service that people want to use and at the moment, is free. But according to a new announcement from Nintendo, this freebie will not last long.  Read more

Best Cameras To Get Used

Hello everyone, and welcome back to my computers and electronics blog. I am a photography addict as I am sure some of you know. But, I am also very cheap and I hate to pay full price for something especially something that will be released next year with a different color scheme and a couple of buttons moved around. This attitude has helped me not have to buy a new digital camera in 5 years, but now my camera shoots pictures that looks worse than my phone. That is why I went to my favourite classified ads site http://www.for-sale.co.uk/ and looked at these digital cameras.  Read more

Cancel Itunes Music

18/04/2017 Main

Hello readers, welcome back to my computer and electronics blog. Me and my friend have a shared iTunes account, and recently he decided to try out Apple Music. For those of you that have been living under a rock for the past year and don’t know what Apple Music is, Apple Music is a new music program similar to Spotify. You pay a certain amount of money each month to Apple and in exchange you get access to all the songs available on iTunes. Now, this was a great idea from Apple to try and take back their revenue from programs like Spotify and Soundcloud, although for us that have already spent a large amount of money on this music paying to ‘own’ it again seems silly. That is why I had to find out how to cancel. Read more

Best Home Speaker for your Iphone

14/04/2017 Main

 Hey everyone, hope you all are having a great week. I would like to welcome you back to my computers and electronics blog. I plan on having a small party at the house soon, and for that I wanted to get a nice speaker to use that can be brought from room to room as we go along. I knew I had to buy myself one, so I thought that if I bought I used one I would be able to buy more ‘party supplies’. That’s the reason I went to www.used.forsale/canada and looked at the different speakers they had for sale. The only thing I was looking for was the ability to connect my speaker to the Apple TV, so that the party can go on in the living room and wherever else we end up. Read more

Is your PC slowing down

Is your PC slowing down
 

Personal computers, desktop or laptops, generally have a shelf life of 3 years, if used in a work environment. By work environment we mean powered up a minimum of 8 hours a day, running mid range heavy apps and obviously internet browsing. It’s not unheard of for business standard, especially desktops, working 5 years or longer. However, at some stage your PC is going to slow down. Web browsing becomes slower, processing requests from applications slows and the general ‘refresh’ regardless of what you have open does the same. Read more

The Reasons Why People Look To The Communication of Steve Jobs

When it comes to communication, you will find that Steve Jobs gets praised for it a great deal. It’s not just the tech industry that speaks highly about what he accomplished in his life, it’s those that are dealing with public speaking, and other communication industries.

Welcome back folks, hope you are all as excited as I am for the return of my electronics blog. Did you guys know that you can buy older generation electronics like video game consoles, computers, and phones online brand new? I didnt until I found this website called http://www.easyprices.com/ that has links to electronics and other items from all over the web. I bought myself some last generation video game consoles and phones and have been installing some free homeware apps on them to really test the hardware of these now considered old electronics.

Blogging with Technology 

Welcome back folks.  I’m back again with an another electronics installment, but this time I wanted to look at how things have changed over the years for the solo-traveller who likes to keep an online travel blog – or travelogue, if you will.  Travel blogging is a lot more popular these days as it once was and changes in technology have assisted greatly.  These days it’s all about tablets, but when I left England and hit the road in 2004, the most advanced technology available to me was basic PDAs and Bluetooth keyboards.  Read more

Apple TV

Apple TV

Hey folks. What have you all been up to recently? Anything interesting? My life has been pretty uneventful of late. I have been busy with work and not had much time for much else in all fairness. I’ve decided that I need to create a bit more “me time” for relaxing and rejuvenating. I intend to spend this time working on my fitness by cycling and working out. But in terms of relaxing, I like nothing more than to sit back on my sofa in front of the TV. I am pretty bored of my current cable network, it really is not value for money. So I was having a look about online for other options and found that Apple’s latest offering for sale is Apple TV. It is a TV service not unlike the service offered by the Android boxes that are now so abundantly popular. Apple TV is what it says on the tin. It is actually a TV rather than a set top box, (although an Apple TV box is also available). But of course, as with all Apple products, it is designed to perfection. Streamlined, contemporary and slick. So I’ve decided I want one, regardless of the cost. I guess I could find a used second hand Apple TV for sale online but I think in this case I am going to fork out and get myself a brand new one. But one can I look forward to once I’ve got one?

Apple could join Netflix, Amazon by offering exclusive streaming content

After encountering difficulties with third-party vendors in order to launch its own TV service streaming, Apple may be found the right solution. Indeed, the giant of Cupertino would have opted for a different tactic, focusing on providing its own content, like Netflix, Amazon and others do. Read more

Apple's Health App

03/07/2016 Main

There is an abundance of fitness bands, watches and clip-ons that record information about how many steps you have taken, how active you have been, how many calories you have burned, how many calories you have consumed and how effective or ineffective, as the case may be, your sleep was every day. These devices are a genius invention and certainly seem to be able to support people in reaching their fitness or weight loss goals. But another wonderful creation is Apple’s Health App and I want to know which devices will be compatible with the app? Read more

The recent trend for streaming TV is evolving at a rapid rate to move beyond the regular online streaming sites.  Apple brought out Apple TV in 2011 and, since then, many companies have been offering their own TV streaming devices or boxes, which can be attached to any television or device with an HDMI output and a WIFI connection. Channels such as Netflix, Amazon TV and Apple TV have made streaming television an increasingly popular way to enjoy home entertainment. With far more variety to choose from, these streaming channels host al the big shows, as well as movies and documentaries. The streaming devices help users to receive a wealth of television without the inconvenience of streaming via a laptop or tablet. A TV streaming device means you can watch what you want, when you want, on your big widescreen TV.  I love my TV shows and am fed up of watching them on my tiny Macbook Air screen so I’ve done some research to help me find the best streaming device.   Here is my breakdown of the best of the best: Read more

The Miniscule of Sound

11/03/2016 Main

As you know, I’m a huge fan of Apple products and I’m interested in all the latest advances in technology that the brand has to offer. I have a few friends who make music and I’ve always been envious of the reception they receive when playing their latest tracks amongst our social group. I’ve always thought I’d like to dabble in it myself but I’ve never been confident enough in my musical ability to splash out on expensive equipment. Read more

Windows 10

04/11/2015 Main

In my first proper entry, I would like to discuss Windows 10. At home I am an Apple user, but at work and for study, I have to use Windows systems. There were some dark days in recent times, mainly during the release stage of Windows 8, where Microsoft really looked as though they hadn’t a clue as to what they were doing. Windows 7 was a particular success, and it seems they sat back and thought they could do nothing wrong with Windows 8. Oh how wrong they were! The OS was so muddled and difficult to navigate, that it was hard to believe this was something from the 2010s. Three years of hell was to be endured until this year, with Windows skipping “9”, we had the introduction of Windows 10. Read more
