This new iPad “mini” has a 7.9 inches display. It is definitely a very handy gadget. Accordingly, what’s good in this kind of gadget is that it has a 4:3 aspect ratio and its viewing area is large and wide enough for both portrait and landscape views, respectively.
I have no plans to buy myself an iPhone 5 since I am still having a very functional mobile phone at this very moment. However, while I was browsing for Zeal Eclipse Ski Goggles for a preparation for an upcoming out-of-town travel of my cousin with his friends, I stumble upon the Verizon iPhone 5 which has a very interesting feature, it is ‘unlocked’.

When one says an iPhone is ‘unlocked’ it only means that the said mobile phone accepts a “sim card” that identifies any wireless network. Pretty cool, right? But I am still having two thoughts whether to buy new phone or not the price exceeds my budget. LOL!

At long last, a new Facebook app for iPad is out now!
Facebook App for iPad
This time, it is said to be better than the one existing because the newly released app is having a more pleasing in appearance where the fonts and font sizes are just enough to the screen.
I am really waiting for this app since the Facebook app for iPad that I am using today ain’t that good to look at. It looks like messy in my iPad. Another app or software that I would want to have my iPad 2 on is the document management software. My documents saved in my iPad is also getting messier every time I add more everyday. My mom suggested me to look for one, actually, and up until now I am still lurking for it.
Hopefully, soon enough I could grab one.
Upon reading the news about the death of the Apple co-founder and former Apple CEO, Steve Jobs, I really looked for my iPad and stared at it while thinking and even imagining stuff inside it running smoothly after the magnificent minds of Steve Jobs. He died after suffering from pancreatic cancer.
Steven Paul “Steve” Jobs was born on February 24, 1955. He is an American entrepreneur and a computer inventor. He was a co-founder of the Apple company. He was also one of the former CEO of such company.
As an inventor, Jobs has been listed as either primary or co-inventor in more or less 300 patent applications related to technology.
For you Steve Jobs, may you rest in peace!

As much as I wanted to get an Apple iPhone smartphones, I still could not because of my so sweaty hands. Not just an iPhone but all full-touch screen phones. It ain’t a good phone for me, as per advised.
To all Apple iPhone and techie Apple fanatics, iPhone 5 is going to be released by the Apple company this year.
And for the exact date? That still a question.
According to MacWorld.com, there are two theories to when Apple iPhone 5 be released this year. Would it be on the first week of October or on the latter weeks.
If I were to ask, when would you prefer for Apple iPhone 5 be released?
I don’t know if I’ll be ecstatic or what with the newest update from Apple company that they will be releasing the next generation of Apple iPad. This is basically because I am having iPad 2 and absolutely, the next generation of any gadgets is better than the present.Accordingly, the Apple iPad 3 will have a higher resolution 2048-by-1536 pixel display. Comparing it to the recent Apple iPad 2 which has only 1024-by-768 display.
How I wish the new iPad 3 could have features to enable it to directly connect it to any dlp projector so for many not to have difficulty during any report presentations and more.
Anyway, If and only if there will be a FREE SWAPPING of iPad as soon as the next generation iPad will be released, I won’t hesitate to swap my iPad 2 with iPad 3. LOL!
