Utility App: JuiceDefender Battery Manager For Android

One of the major problems that comes with smart phones is the rate at whcih battery life is drained. Its not a virus eating your battery life away or your Android device not in good condition, neither is it the screen resolution (even though its partially responsible).

If you are a heavy data user, then you are sure your battery life would not last 12hrs even when fully charged and when heavily used for mobile application such as twitter, facebook, skype, yahoo messager, whatsapp messenger just to mention a few.

Two years ago, we would have been hard pressed to come up with reasons for an iPhone owner to switch to Android. That’s no longer a problem, thanks to the advent of super-fast 4G phones, high-resolution 4.3-inch displays, free GPS navigation, and the Android Market’s expansion.

Fast Broadband Internet in Nigeria is said to be a luxury to have. It is seen that most upwardly mobile young Nigerians carry mutiple Internet connection devices, just in a bid to be in connection to the rest of the world. Whose responsibility should it be to provide adequate and reliable Internet access at an affordable cost to the people of Nigeria?

A Review Of The New IPAD

Since the launch of the New IPad on March 7th, 2012, I have being looking for reviews of people who were at the launch and were able to have a look and feel of the new device from the stable of Apple.

Personally i am also concern about the weight simply because, when attached to protective cases the weight would increase and then make the device much more heavier.

Gizmodo has come across an inventory sheet from accessories manufacturer Griffin that uses the new name for the latest iPad. The sheet lists a number of color options for an ‘IntelliCase for iPad HD (3)’.

Since the new Apple tablet is expected to come with a much higher resolution(2,048 x 1,536 pixels), naming it the iPad HD would make sense. It will apparently boast a Retina Display with twice the current generation’s resolution and a greater pixel density than a full 1080p HD TV.
