IPHONE VS ANDROID- A NEARLY BIAS FREE OPINION

This has sparked quite a debate recently with Apple's new Iphone 4 launch. As an IT professional or even as a regular person one should be as informed as possible about these two phones, then make a decision on which phone to buy.

Now I will say that Apple's Iphone has revolutionized the industry, when this smartphone came out I wanted one, you wanted one, everyone did. If you denied the power of the Iphone when it first came out then you were being bias as it was a moajor player in paving the way for all smart phones today.

Speaking paving the way by Apple, I want to give you my opinion and a little know fact about Apple and Steve Jobs. Steve Jobs seems to do things his way only and not budge, as back in the day when Macintosh ruled the computing world. It was the breakthrough company that led to Microsoft. Apple lost the computing market share to Microsoft because Jobs was closed off and did not have the ability to adapt and see that people wanted more. And although he revolutionized the personal computing industry then as he has done now with the Iphone he lacks the ability to upgrade and give into popular demand. This man is like a one hit wonder, although he seems to have a one hit wonder every century. So we can't really put him down, he is a brilliant man, without him we might not be where we are today. I hope on the next version of the Iphone he will not be so closed off, then he might have a future with the Iphone. Frankly where is the Iphone going to go from here? HTML5 is it's savior? His client base would be so much larger if he puts his ego down, because he is already losing his market share in the phone industry which I will get into further in this blog.

With that said lets get into the proper discussion.

  1. Although I agree with you that Steve Jobs is egotistical, I would disagree with you that the iPhone was as revolutionary as people make it out to be. Certainly the iPhone has become increasingly more effective at selling itself, but during iPhone's break into the market, it was piggy-backing on the iPod. The iPod was what sold the iPhone. Without the iPod, the iPhone wouldn't have been as popular as it is today.

  2. It certainly was a breakthrough for the industry .. regardless of how it got there.. no other phone at that time did half of what the iphone did and so seamlessly.. you were able to view full web, something we take for granted now and they virtually created the apps department. Yes they revolutionized the industry, but as with the Microsoft case Mr. Jobs does not want to give into popular demand, so Android came out and it can do more than the Iphone. All that's left of the Iphone shares are people who are stubborn and swear by the iPhone or people who don't care about specs of the phone.. Android phones can do more and do more faster. However their battery life is limited due to this..

  3. indeed the android os is superior to the iphone os but the battery life loss is due to hardware not software

Wordpress Illdy Jumbotron Video Background

Having an animated background for your homepage is something that a lot of people would like to do. For Content Management Systems (CMSs) like WordPress, it gets a tad more complicated as you're working within a preset frame. Luckily, I like the idea of an animated background too. And I like to do it easily. But before you attempt this, you need to get the prerequisites set. 1) Get WordPress installed on your webhost. 2) Install the theme 'Illdy' 3) Upload your video that you'd like to play onto your YouTube channel. Once you do these things, you're ready.

Qualcomm Atheros AR9285 + Windows 10 Issue [Resolved]

So, I installed Windows 10 after reading about it and getting over the insane amount of data Windows mines from you . I figured that most companies do something like this and Microsoft just so happens to be quite candid about it -- after it was brought to light by someone on a site which shall not be named (I'm sure those of you who know can guess). Be that as it may, my Lenovo G580  stopped being able to reach the Internet and I clicked on my WiFi was grayed out and could not, would not connect to my wireless connection no matter what I did. Luckily I managed to resolve it through a workaround. So, if you're stuck then you should just follow the instructions. This should work for any WiFi connectivity issue (you just have to download the drivers that pertain to your particular WiFi hardware model. Mine just happens to be the Qualcomm Atheros AR9285 .

Installing Open Biblio on Third-Party Webserver

So, you've decided to use Open Biblio the free online library system? But, you want to attach it to a website that you're hosting outside of your building (somewhere on the Internet). Why would you want to do this? Well, I find that in-house servers can be a cumbersome thing to maintain. You have to ensure that backups are properly working and scheduled. If something happens, and your server goes down, it's your responsibility to ensure it gets up and working. It takes up space. It uses bandwidth. I could go on and on and on. So, hosting it elsewhere resolves most of these problems. The most distinct disadvantage is it's advantage; it's not in your hands. So if something happens to your external server, then you're screwed. So get a good web service. Here, I have taken the trouble in actually setting up Open Biblio on a third-party server since I already have an external webserver and don't want to clutter my personal one with this. It's not ha
