The year in Review: Apple

Apple had its share of much-hyped product releases and headline-grabbing controversies in 2011, but late on Oct. 5, the gadgets and drama were overshadowed by the passing of Cupertino's enigmatic co-founder. Steve Jobs was gone.
The news hit early in the evening on the East Coast, one day after Apple had unveiled its new iPhone 4S. Jobs had battled cancer for years, taking several leaves of absence and even undergoing a liver transplant, but by August 2011, the time had come to say goodbye. Jobs resigned from his post as Apple CEO, handing the reigns over to Tim Cook, and two months later, he passed away surrounded by family.
Upon hearing the news of his death, fans flocked to Apple Stores around the world to pay their respects, and Apple later held a star-studded memorial service at its Cupertino headquarters. His life was chronicled in a Walter Isaacson biography, published about three weeks after his death, but for more, see PCMag's look back at Jobs's life and career.

But Jobs likely would not have wanted his death to overshadow all that his company had accomplished in 2011, though he probably would've been OK with it eclipsing some of the gaffes, like location tracking, iPhone battery drains, and contentious patent battles. Let's take a look back at the good, the bad, and ugly to come out of Cupertino in the last year.
The Products
Apple fans spent much of the year waiting for a product that never arrived—the iPhone 5. We got a new iPhone, but it failed to include a totally revamped form factor, larger screen, 4G, or any of the other far-fetched, rumored features that made the rounds in 2011.
Instead, the iPhone 4S arrived looking exactly the same as the iPhone 4 on the outside, but with Siri, a souped-up camera, and dual-core processor inside. Any disappointment over the lack of an iPhone 5-branded device did not hurt sales, though. Apple sold at least 4 million devices in the first few days it was available. The smartphone was also added to two new U.S. carriers—Sprint and C Spire.
Earlier in the year, however, Jobs was still well enough to take the stage and unveil the iPad 2—a thinner, faster version of its predecessor with front- and rear-facing cameras. It went on sale in March, prompting long lines at area Apple Stores. By July, Apple revealed that it sold 9.25 million iPads during the quarter, a 183 percent increase from the year before.
Rivals like RIM and HP have struggled to compete with the iPad. The closest competitor appears to be the Amazon Kindle Fire, but the 7-inch, $199 tablet has really emerged as a low-cost alternative to the iPad rather than a potential iPad killer. Apple execs quipped recently that the Fire might help iPad sales; people will purchase the Fire, realize they want something more powerful, and trade up.
With the new devices, meanwhile, came a revamped operating system: iOS 5. It took a page from other OSes, like Android's notification center and BlackBerry Messenger with iMessage. There was also the launch of iCloud and iTunes Match for on-the-go access to files and music. The company's Mac and iPod lines also got an overhaul, while the next iteration of Mac OS X, Lion, finally hit the desktop.

7 Apple Stores to Visit Before You Die

Covent Garden Store
Apple opened a location in London's Covent Garden in August 2010. The fifth London store is quite a superlative. Aside from being the biggest Apple store, it is also the most expensive to date, ifoAppleStore noted. It's housed in a three-level space in a restored 1870s-era building with exposed brick detail. Although it's been restored, the store retains most of its original features, like a glass staircase and stone culled from a Wales quarry.

New York's Grand Central Terminal
One of Apple's newest retail outlets, the 23,0000-square-foot store is housed within New York City's Grand Central Terminal. It opened its doors on Dec. 9, 2011 and is one of the largest Apple stores in the world. Be sure to check out PCMag's extensive slideshow of the store, which features photos snapped during a pre-opening press preview.

New York's Fifth Ave Store
Visitors to New York City often want to walk along Fifth Avenue to take in the impressive window displays in stores like Bloomingdale's and Tiffany's. Just across the street from the famed Plaza Hotel sits a 32-foot glass cube fitted with an illuminated Apple logo that appears to be floating inside of it. Opened in 2006, this spot sees more traffic than any of other three Big Apple Mac shops combined. This mecca for Apple fanboys is open 24 hours a day, too.

Ginza Store
The Apple Store in the Ginza district of Tokyo was the first location to open outside of the U.S. ifoAppleStore calls this flagship location a “showcase store for Apple.". The building was constructed in 1965 and has with a stainless steel façade, adorned with a pair of Apple icons. With a signature glass display window on the outside and products begging to be tested on wooden tables on the inside, it looks similar to many U.S. locations However, this four-story store features two continuously-running elevators, an 84-seat auditorium, and a 27-foot-long Genius Bar. It's also the tallest of the Apple stores. Don't speak Japanese? No problem. Ten different languages are spoken at this store.

This store served another purpose recently. After a devastating 8.9-magnitude earthquake hit Japan in early March, Apple kept this Tokyo store open, allowing access the store's public Wi-Fi, watch online news, and contact friends and family via social-networking sites and check their e-mail. Apple also reportedly allowed stranded employees to sleep at the store.

Shanghai Store
Apple's first Shanghai store is positioned right next to a slightly larger monument: the 1,535-foot-tall Oriental Pearl Tower, China's second largest building. Opened, July 10 of last year, this spot is characterized by a 40-foot-high glass cylinder surrounded by a shallow glass moat. Similar to New York's Fifth Avenue Store, shoppers must descend a spiral staircase to get to the 5,000-square foot store.

It's one of four stores in China. The first, in the Sanlitun District of Beijing, was opened in 2008, just before the summer Olympics kicked off. Apple is said to be emphasizing retail locations in China and hopes to have 25 total in the country by 2012. The four China locations have been widely reported as some of the busiest of in Apple's fleet.

Paris Store
Apple's first Paris store is stunning. Located in the Carrousel du Louvre, a shopping center in the bowels of the famous museum, it is marked by a huge, inverted glass triangle that allows sunlight to pour into the store. Shoppers are greeted by a 30-foot glass window sandwiched between two entrances. The architects maintained much of the original integrity of the building, and left the original stone walls unchanged, allowing the store to fit in with the overall design of the space.

Sydney Store
Apple's opened its first Southern Hemisphere store in Sydney, Australia location in June 2008, just before the release of the iPhone 3G. An all-glass store front complete with a suspended Apple logo reveals the guts of the store, a three-level 4,400-square foot space on the corner of George and King streets in Sydney's central business district. Although this was the first store in Australia, Apple now has 10 stores down under.

Mega Man 25th Anniversary

Globally, 2012 will be a special year for countless gamers. What event will take place? On December 17, 1987 was published in Japan's first title of one of the longest running series in the industry and introduced one of the most beloved by those who have ever moved a control. We're talking about Mega Man ​​and turns 25 next year. We know that there are still 13 months to reach this anniversary, but expectations could not be higher. This year was the 25th anniversary of Zelda and we saw the work that was Nintendo. So we ask: in 2012, what game (s) can fans expect from the Blue Bomber to celebrate?

I, as a fan to the bone of Mega Man, in early 2011 could not be happier, as they were two titles in production all eagerly awaited. However, in March Mega Man Universe is canceled and a few months after Mega Man Legends 3 would suffer the same fate. And, today, the future of blue titanium hero may seem very bleak. Capcom has given no indication of a new project or because of loss of a redición-release-version-of-director-HD-Turbo-Ultimate Mega Man

In other anniversaries Capcom really delighted us with a variety of titles for all the Mega Man series of games does not matter if were regular, good or bad, were years in which we could still enjoy the games of Mega Man ​​But in the last five years, except MM MM 9 and 10, this series has fallen into a spiral that ends in a bottomless pit, just like those found in games.

As Asher said recently: "There are more mega manes than you can imagine" (or something), and that either the classic series or a subsequent series (X, Zero, ZX, Legends, Network or Starforce) nobody can deny the relevance of Mega Man ​​in this industry.

For those who have their sights set on December 2012, and time running out and it is disturbing that Capcom is still not announce anything. Is this the worst anniversary of Mega Man? How early will receive a signal coming we happy? We only have to wait, just as it says the end of Mega Man ​​X: "But Only Time Will Tell, When and why".

To you, what game (s) would like to surprise that Capcom published in the 25 th anniversary of Mega Man?

To me, I'd love to revive the project of Mega Man Mania, which was to be a compilation of the five Mega Man games that were released on the Game Boy. Obviously, it would be great to have a title in the Mega Man X series, but considering the anticipated time that Mega Man 9, I doubt that a new set of MM X is in production.

Also, what was the first Mega Man ​​played and how important was your series?

Android 4.O

Google's new version of Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich), brings enough new features that it's worth making sure your phone will get an update if you're buying a new one for the holidays.
Some manufacturers have been more open than others when it comes to planning their ICS upgrades. Of course, if you get the Samsung Galaxy Nexus whenever it comes out on Verizon Wireless, you'll get ICS first—although as our full review shows, it will lack Facebook integration and Mass Storage support, which other phones may have.
HTC has announced that several of its high-end smartphones will get ICS upgrades in 2012, and that's sure to include HTC's Sense overlay, with its better social-networking integration and improved lock screen. No carrier is left out: You can choose from the HTC Vivid (AT&T), HTC Sensation and Amaze 4G (T-Mobile), HTC Rezound (Verizon Wireless), and the HTC EVO 3D and EVO Design 4G (Sprint).
Sony Ericsson has committed to ICS for many of its phones, but most of them aren't available from U.S. carriers. The only one we've seen in carrier stores has been the Xperia Play gaming phone, available in both Verizon and AT&T models.
Motorola says the Droid RAZR and Droid Bionic, both for Verizon Wireless, will get ICS updates. No word on the rest of the company's phone product line.
Samsung has been less forthcoming, confirming Ice Cream Sandwich only for the unlocked Galaxy S II, and with no particular date. AT&T's model is the closest to the international unit, though, so it's the most likely U.S. Galaxy S II to receive the update.
If you're a killer geek, of course, you'll probably be able to push ICS onto almost any phone you can get your hands on. Hackers have already adapted ICS for the Samsung Nexus S, which may be your best no-contract budget buy for the new OS; it's available in T-Mobile ($99.99 at Wirefly), AT&T, and Sprint ($99.99 at Sprint) flavors.
We're sure to hear more about Ice Cream Sandwich upgrades now that the OS has been open-sourced. But if you want to assure yourself of a smooth upgrade, it's best to go with one of the phones that you know will be getting the new software.

HTC Vivid

The HTC Vivid is a powerful Android phone with a beautiful screen and fast 4G LTE data on AT&T's brand new network.
Sony Ericsson Xperia Play

The Sony Ericsson Xperia Play 4G is an excellent phone for gaming, and a solid phone in its own right; just make sure it has games you want to play.
HTC EVO Design 4G

The HTC EVO Design 4G is a comfortable world phone that offers solid performance and 4G speeds at a good price.
Samsung Nexus S 4G

We found the Nexus S 4G's call quality and reception to be sorely lacking, but you can't deny that it's been the darling of the "pure Google" geek crowd, and it's the first phone to get new hacks.
HTC Sensation 4G

The HTC Sensation offers a great balance of dual-core power with the elegance of HTC's Sense UI extensions to Android.
HTC Amaze 4G

The HTC Amaze 4G has a big beautiful screen, a great camera, and fast HSPA+ 42 speeds, making it a top choice for Android smartphones on T-Mobile.
Verizon Wireless
Motorola Droid RAZR

The Motorola Droid RAZR is stunningly thin for a 4G LTE smartphone, made from cutting-edge materials to deliver a slim body without sacrificing power.
HTC Rezound

The HTC Rezound is an amazing Internet and multimedia machine that fits into your pocket, but it's a bulky piece of kit
Samsung Galaxy S II

One of the finest Android smartphones available today, the unlocked Samsung Galaxy S II delivers in almost every way. Thing is, it's so expensive, it almost prices itself out of the market.

Barnes & Noble Nook Tablet

The reader's tablet is back. The new Nook Tablet delivers the best color e-reading experience available, especially for magazines and for childrens' books. It's a better e-reader than the Amazon Kindle Fire ($199, 4 stars), our Editors' Choice for small tablets. But the Nook doesn't quite match the Fire on music, video or apps, and the Nook Color ($199, 4 stars) offers the same great e-reading experience for less money. Make no mistake, the Nook is a very good small tablet, but the Fire delivers a better all-around tablet experience, and the Nook Color offers better value as a color e-reader.

Physical Design and User Interface
Feeling a little more 'book-like' than the Amazon Kindle Fire, the Nook Tablet is significantly taller and slightly wider at 8.1 by 5.9 by 0.5 inches (HWD) thanks to its much bigger bezel, but it's lighter at 14.1 ounces compared with Amazon's 14.6. There's a standard 3.5-mm headphone jack, and a curious little loop in the bottom left corner, which serves as both a handle and a way to conceal the reader's MicroSD card slot, just like on the Nook Color. In fact the Nook Tablet and the Nook Color are almost identical save for the a slightly lighter-color metallic finish. The Tablet has physical Power button and volume controls on the side panels as well as a single, "N"-shaped home button at the bottom of the 7-inch, 1024-by-600 touch screen.

Motorola Atrix 2

Motorola is doubling down on its docking smartphone. The original Atrix 4G was a fun, if somewhat buggy cell phone that converted into a laptop. A major firmware update resolved many of the bugs. Now Motorola is back for more with the Atrix 2 ($99.99), an incremental but welcome refresh—and one that finally delivers on its original 4G promise. The Atrix 2 is still an idea that's ahead of its time, but if you're the geeky type, you can have plenty of fun with it.

Design, 4G Connectivity, and Call Quality
Like the original model, the Atrix 2 is a big slab measuring 5.0 by 2.6 by 0.4 inches (HWD) and weighing 5.2 ounces. It's also somewhat shinier than before. The newly textured, soft touch back panel and smoked chrome accented sides look sharp. The slightly larger, 4.3-inch screen is a beauty, with 960-by-540-pixel resolution and deep, vibrant colors. Any Android phone with a screen of this size is pretty easy to type on, even in portrait mode, and the Atrix 2 is no exception. The infamous PenTile display is gone; consequently, fonts appeared sharp and crisp this time around.

The Atrix 2 is a quad-band EDGE (850/900/1800/1900 MHz) and tri-band HSPA+ 21 (850/1900/2100 MHz) device with 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi. We dinged the original Atrix "4G" for its HSPA+ 14.4 connection, which amounted to roughly 3G real-world performance; this time around, the 4G support is real, and the phone virtually screams it with a stylized 4G icon next to the signal strength bar. But I live in a rural part of Massachusetts, so I only saw average speeds of 2 to 2.5Mbps down and 1Mbps up (with three bars of "4G" signal). That's roughly HSPA 7.2, not HSPA+ 21, but it's because of AT&T's network, not the phone. The Atrix 2 also works as a 4G mobile hotspot for up to five devices with the appropriate data plan.

Voice quality was stellar, with a warm, full tone in the earpiece, and clear transmissions through the microphone. Even high-end smartphones sometimes give up voice quality in order to pack in so many other features, but not this one. Reception was solid.

Calls also sounded clear through an Aliph Jawbone Era Bluetooth headset ($129, 4 stars). But voice dialing was a total fail; Motorola and AT&T replaced the stock app with their own, which either missed what I said entirely, or heard half of the digits incorrectly. The speakerphone was clear and undistorted, if a little tinny, and went just loud enough for outdoor use. Battery life was very impressive at 10 hours and 43 minutes of talk time; credit the oversize 1785mAh battery.

OS, Hardware, and Docks
Android purists will be miffed, since Motorola once again MOTOFIED its Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) build. You get five home screen panels that you can customize or swipe between. This time around, the icons get another refresh, the menus swipe left to right instead of scrolling vertically, and you can now change the four quick launch icons at the bottom. It's all pretty attractive, especially the dial screen, although much of it appears to be change for the sake of change—at the expense of timely OS updates later. The 1GHz dual-core processor looks similar to the original model's on paper, but it's actually a TI OMAP4430 chip; the Atrix 4G had an Nvidia Tegra 2 CPU. It benchmarks slightly faster, with a roughly 10 to 15 percent improvement across the board, including frame rates.

The ten commandments for entrepreneurs by Steve Jobs

1 .- Do what we love
Life is short, that we hear and repeat it constantly, but there is little we actually apply it ... How many times we have felt "trapped" in jobs that do not give us anything more than a paycheck (sometimes not even give to live)? If you have to fight with yourself every morning to get out of bed and go to the office, you may have a problem, not just laziness.
"The only way to do a job is to love what you do. If you have not found yet, keep looking. Do not despair. As in love, you know when you've found, "Jobs said in a speech at Stanford.
So if you find yourself several times a day watching the clock and counting the hours to leave the office ... you're in trouble also. When things motivate us when we are passionate about something, time flies by, and work gives such great pleasure and satisfaction that are as fuel energy that renews us hour after hour, day after day.
So if life is so short as we know it, are you going to waste it working on something that fills you? We all have to eat and pay the place where we live, but while you have to work in something that fills you up, do not stop dreaming about what you really want to do and when you know, when you clear your idea, leave everything and dedicate yourself to it: Steve Jobs dropped out of college and devoted himself to what he wanted. Mark Zuckerberg did the same and so a lot of cases.
Note: This is not to let readers Fayerwayer studies, is studying or working in what they are really passionate about. When you are clear, put all your energy into achieving it: The worst that can happen is you fail and have to find another job to pay the bills underpaid and debts while still dreaming and try again. The key: Do not lose hope.
2 .- Follow your intuition
In the speech he gave Steve Jobs at Stanford University in June 2005, recalled that leaving the race, no longer had to attend the required classes, he decided to take a course in calligraphy at Reed College, which according then offered said "the best calligraphy instruction in the country." Although he had no practical use at the moment, it was not useful for making money was something he was passionate about ... I did and enjoyed it.
Ten years later, when we were designing the first Macintosh computer, Jobs said "everything made sense" to him: "Everything we design on the Mac was the first computer with beautiful typography." Follow your instincts gave him a knowledge then applied and became one of the differential values.
A key plus for entrepreneurs: Do things that you like, but for now do not know why you attract. You do not know if some cooking classes that you see today as a hobby, in a few years will give you the key to your enterprise. Also, in my particular way of looking at the artistic cutting activities that stimulate creativity should always be welcome, but yours is throwing codes PSART life. Do not cut the wings: Follow your intuition.
3 .- To investigate, monitor, investigate ...
Research is essential to undertake: You must learn from the sector in which you want to move, detect and study the competition, understand the market to go to him best. If you have an entrepreneurial idea in mind is essential to encounter the competition, who investigate, you see things as he does, what is right and what is wrong.
They say that when designing the brochures of Apple, Jobs studied in detail the use made of the Sony fonts, layout and paper with a certain weight. Also, when it came time to design the cardboard box for the first Mac, was walking across the parking lot fixed with Apple's attention on the bodies of German and Italian cars.
"You can ask the customers what they want and then try to pass it.For when you have built, they will want something new, "said Jobs.
Observation is critical for entrepreneurs: It gives you a privileged view of the environment that allows you to identify market needs that are dormant, that people do not even know they have ... That's one of the teachings of Jobs: How many needed iPad? Now the tablets are part of our technological equipment.
4 .- Profiling the best
An important issue for entrepreneurs: The selection of your team.Jobs are always concerned about recruiting the best: He hired the architect IM Pei to design the NeXT logo and recruited Mickey Drexler, Gap, to serve on the board of directors of Apple with a view to launching chain company stores.
This advice is necessarily useful when we begin a venture, and I say this from experience: An entrepreneur can not (or have reason) to know everything. While it is necessary to know the world in which we're going to get, be it technological, restoration, or transport, it is virtually impossible to master all areas.
That is the importance of strategic partnerships, where if your forte is technology, find someone who knows marketing and sales, and help you position your product or "fishing" for clients, for example.
5.-Maintaining a small staff
On one occasion in which he spoke of the early Macintosh, Jobs said that the payroll was a hundred people: If required to hire a worker, before saying goodbye to another. The reason? He said he could only remember a hundred names, so I ran the template that number to have a better relationship with each of the workers we have.
Obviously when the company took off, the number of workers grew, but while it is a good idea to maintain a limited staff: It certainly gives the employer the chance to have a closer relationship with its employees, and thus make them feel part the project, seduce them with the idea that drives the business, engage with the results.
For entrepreneurs this is a common mistake: I have known cases of those who go into debt to hire staff and create a template from scratch (and a paycheck to pay) without even walk the project and provide profit to pay those costs ...
In other cases, not having the budget to hire, then we can think of the "bright idea" of going through life by recruiting friends and relatives who feel they know more than us in certain activities, we told the idea, excited, lovers and rode the boat. Beware! You have to know who to rely on more than we know, but in perspective: These associations may end up with friends and families to fight.
I believe this must be a minimum of equipment able to deliver the project, and as you see how it works, you incorporate the "professionals of your dreams." Neither Google nor Facebook, or Twitter born perfect: His designs, for example, left much to be desired, but on the fly, once took off, have made the adjustments that have as we know them today. I think it's a matter of patience and perseverance. Do not you think?
6 .- Seduce your employees and partners
By following teams talking about this part I found very important: The difference between "seduce" and "threatening" to your co-venture, to be your partners or your employees, is that the latter, although they pay for their work If you fail to fall in love with your project does not get 100% capacity.
They say that Jobs had a personal charisma that kept employees motivated: His infectious enthusiasm was the reason why the staff designed the first Mac spent three years in a row working 90 hours a week. When an employee is given to a project, the best incentive is to see it completed with the highest quality because they feel part of the company and thus its success.
Actually I have no employees of its own, but when I held command positions in other companies, I experienced firsthand what it is best to use "the carrot than the stick" is better motivate always oblige. I do not understand why the bosses so difficult to understand this ... I hope that when I have my own employees remember it clearly. I think the key is, like life itself, always take someone else's shoes.It's easier to get a perspective on the things that are asked and how they ask.
7.-The quality as a religion
They say that on the eve of launching the first iPod, staff employees spent the night replacing the headphone jack because Jobs did not felt that "click" of the precise and desirable. Maintaining a quality criterion is critical to entrepreneurs: Let us not be so easy, so practical, or "what sells".
"Have a quality criterion. Some people do not use it to create the atmosphere of excellence that is expected, "said Jobs.
Commit to doing quality work is critical to the development of an idea: You can not leave things half, settling for "what is". It aspires to more, but without stopping. It is not that you have to get a perfect product the first, the question is that everything can be improved.Achieving this is a very important point of difference.
"Quality is more important than quantity. A home run is much better than two doubles. "
Suppose you move, and I in the world of marketing and communication: While we often see that what sells is the "sensationalist" and "sensationalist" can not be satisfied with giving people more of the same. You have to evolve to the messages and quality content, even if it takes more time and effort, because those that people also interested. Quality beyond the amount and immediacy ... Having time to stop and think is fundamental to doing things of quality.
8.-Learning from failure
The enterprises are complicated and risky: Nobody knows for sure what will happen, and that uncertainty is often scary. At some even paralyzed. The possibility of failure is just around the corner and no doubt is a high probability of occurrence, the secret is in how you accept it: A defeat or a lesson.
"I'm the only person who can lose a quarter of a million dollars a year. It is very constructive, "said Jobs.
In the speech at Stanford, Jobs recalled when he was fired from Apple, the company he founded. Although told as an anecdote, noting that "sometimes life hits you with a brick in the head", remember that he was fired because he could connect with their most creative again and then with the experience accumulated in his career:
"The heaviness of being successful was replaced by the light of being a beginner again. It freed me and I entered one of the most creative periods of my life. Over the next five years, I founded a company named NeXT, another company named Pixar, and fell in love with an amazing woman who became my wife. "
Jobs did not sit in a corner complaining that he had been fired. Not content to collect unemployment assistance (if it exists in the U.S.) or resumes throwing was stunned to see if anyone called him to offer him a position that would earn a living wage and little else. He tried again. Search again connect with what he was passionate about and dared to take it again ... For some say that this undertaking is addictive.
"Sometimes when you innovate, make mistakes. It is best to admit them quickly, and continue betting your other innovations, "said Jobs.
Bottom line: Learning from mistakes and understand once and for all, that failure is a major source of learning.
9 .- Risking the idea
When we are undertaking, and we tell our friends or relatives the idea we have in mind, one of the things that is often asked what is the business model? or what is the same: Where will get the money. Jobs, although successful in their projects, reflected:
"Being the richest man in the cemetery do not care ... Go to bed at night saying we've done something wonderful ... that's what matters to me."
There are businesses that are born without knowing how it will be profitable, such as Twitter. And that does not mean it is not a successful venture. While the idea from a business model that lets the proceeds to cover expenses and make a profit, I am convinced that if you do what you really like, find the way to monetize your efforts and live doing what you love is a gain in itself, is not it?
10.-The time is now
"Never put off tomorrow what you can do today," says a popular proverb, very wise indeed. And is that while we say that life is short, what do we expect? Jobs said:
"You want to lose the rest of your life selling flavored water or want an opportunity to change the world?"
It is important to understand that the conditions for undertaking never be 100% good: The perfect moment is now. Have to take risks and try. After all, the worst that can happen is that you should try again ... what are you waiting to take?

iPhone 4S!!!!!!

The Apple iPhone 4S won't be available until Oct. 14, but PCMag got some hands-on time with it shortly after it was announced Tuesday. Cosmetically, the iPhone 4S looks exactly like last year's iPhone 4, but as Tim Cook boasted, "Inside it is all new."
Apple's new smartphone has a dual-core A5 CPU, an 8-megapixel still camera, a 1080p video camera, and of course, iOS 5. What does all this mean to the average user? We will have to get it into PC Labs before we issue a judgment, but in the short time I spent with the iPhone 4S, it seems like an improved version of an already very solid smartphone.
Hold the iPhone 4S in your hand and it is impossible to tell it apart from the iPhone 4. Apple would not let me shoot still photos or video of the device, so you'll have to take my word on this. I asked five different Apple representatives and none of them could point out a single difference between the phones. That isn't a bad thing; I rather like the iPhone 4's industrial, almost steampunk design.
I point it out only to explain that if you want to show off the fact you have an iPhone 4S, you'll have to do it verbally or keep the phone the box it came in. The models are identical, at least on the outside.
In my short time with the iPhone 4S, I tried to tax the new A5 CPU, the same processor that is used in the iPad 2 tablet. The stunning Infinity Blade 2 game that was shown in the demonstration wasn't loaded on my unit, but it did have Real Racing 2. The game was fluid and had richly detailed backgrounds, but to be honest, there is only so much detail you can fit on a 3.5-inch screen. I'd really like to see what it looks like when you use AirPlay to stream the game on a WiFi-connected HDTV. Then we'll see what the iPhone 4S can really do. Even so, it is more than a match for the average Android phone and should continue to give Sony and Nintendo nightmares.

September 15th

This post its about the holidays of day independence in México exclusively, the party its in everywhere in large of the country, cause we are mexicans and we proud of that, but not only for the day for the day of independence, also the history and the raices of all the people born here.

Well, chaching the subject a little, I'll gonna talk about the real party in my city, I live in Mérida city, best know as "The White City". A truly calm city in the south west of México, when the criminals don't exist, literally, and the night party is short comparing with another citys of México.

The party of independence day begins at midnight and everywhere start to scream "VIVA MEXICO" life to the heroes of independence and all kind of that stuff. Actually this year was less funny that the last one, I have share a lot with my friends, I drank tequila (just a little) for my luck I didn't get drunk!!! and nothing, just that, It was another simple party... but It was fun after all, I'm very glad not  getting drunk.

I hope you guys enjoy this little history
