    Android vs iPhone VS Android vs iPhone

    Hardware, durability and cost are not the only considerations that go into deciding between an Android or iPhone.

    The software or operating systems that power our devices do as much to shape the character of a particular phone as the look and feel of the machine itself. It’s also in this internal software that the most stark differences exist between Google’s Android and Apple’s iOS.

    Android vs iPhone                           VS                  Android vs iPhone

    It’s the debate that only gets more intense as smartphone ownership nears 50 percent of the American populace — which phone is right for me? Android or iPhone?

    Choosing the right device can be a tough decision. After all, given a two-year commitment requirement with a mobile provider, the device you choose can be with you for quite a while unless you want to pay a hefty early termination fee.

  3. Which Tablet to Buy

    Leave a Comment

    Tablets are one of the hottest products on the market. Which tablet is right for you? When you consider all of the features they offer, you can understand why so many people are using them to not only supplement their laptops but also to replace them entirely. Indeed, the trusty tablet is predicted to outsell laptops by 2016, and some say the laptop is already well on its way out.

    But what’s so great about tablets, you ask. Well, let’s take a quick look at some important features:

    • Instant On – no waiting for lengthy boot-ups
    • Versatility – Entertainment, Games, Videos, Music, Content, eBooks, Web browsing, emails
    • Easily transported and light-weight
    • App Stores make it easy to add programs
    • Less worries with regards to security, configurability
    • Easy to use
    • Pricing – even a top of the line tablet cost less than typical laptops
