Apple iPhone 6

The biggest release of this year so far, but more likely the reason that this is one of the most anticipated product release for over generations of technology and smartphone innovations.

Apple has officially announced the release of it’s latest product range namely the ”iPhone 6, iPhone 6 plus and smart watch” technologies as said by the CEO of Apple Tim Cook. The big day happened the 9th of September at a big keynote presentation  held at Cupertino featuring full product launch and specification review, we got a chance to round up the new and latest key features of the Apple iPhone 6.

Design and Display

The iPhone 6 will come out with a 4.7-inch LED back-lit display with a 1334 x 750 resolution, with the all new retina HD display. The screen with boast up to 1334 x 750 pixel range which is the same as that of the iPhone 5S. Although iPhone 6 will deliver higher contrast and wider viewing angles than the iPhone 5S and it even features an improved polariser, so that colour’s look more natural when you use it while wearing sunglasses. With the seamless design of the anodized aluminum and stainless steel to the curve of the polished glass which the iPhone 6 is made of, it still manages to pack all the features into a device which is only 6.9mm thin.

The Enormous Power

The iPhone 6 packs in an A8, 64-bit second generation processor and a next-generation M8 motion co-processor too. The iPhone 6 sticks with 1GB of RAM and has a 1.4GHz dual-core processor, compared to the 1.3GHz dual-core iPhone 5S. And because it’s designed to be so power efficient, the A8 chip can sustain higher performance which means you can play graphics-intensive games or enjoy video at higher frame rates for longer than ever. The A8 processor uses an advanced 20-nanometer process. It’s a remarkably small and efficient chip on which two billion transistors deliver incredible performance with up to 50 percent more energy efficiency than the previous A7 chip.

”Say Cheese”, The Camera 

The iPhone has not changed much in the camera megapixel as compared to the iPhone 5s, which in this case is the iSight 8MP camera but it came packing with other features and improvements. A new wide angle iSight lens, true tone flash, f/2.2 aperture, greater noise reduction, digital image stabilisation and a 2 x faster autofocus provide even better images. The rear camera can shoot 1080p video and the Slo-mo video mode has been boosted to give you the option to record in either 120 fps or 240 fps. Videos also benefit from continuous autofocus, plus Apple has added a new time-lapse mode to the mix.

The iOS 8 operating system

With the release of the latest iOS 8 system which would be released and available the 17th September, which could be downloaded and updated on the previous iPhone models such as the iPhone 4s, 5, 5C and 5S. The iOS 8 system features tighter Mac OS X Yosemite integration while loosening the restrictions on Apple’s Touch ID fingerprint sensor. This goes a long way to the Passbook-integrated Apple Pay. New software kits also bring once fragmented security and health gadgets together, something that this year’s “one more thing” surprise, the Apple Watch, will takes advantage of in early 2015.

Other New Features

Barometer – The barometer senses air pressure to determine your relative elevation. So as you move, you can keep track of the elevation you’ve gained. It can even measure stairs climbed or hills conquered.

Accelerometer – The accelerometer can measure your distance for walking and running. And by using GPS to calibrate for your running stride, the sensor more accurately captures your movement.

Gyroscope – In addition to knowing whether you’re on the move or stationary, M8 works with the gyroscope to detect when you’re driving. It also kicks into action when you’re taking panoramic photos or playing games that react to your movement.

How to achieve success – Joel Baloyi

How to achieve success

One afternoon on my way to the office I heard an advert on radio from our local South African radio channel. This ad was a man who called a plumbing company to help him with fixing a baking problem, then at the end of the ad a question is asked about you calling a plumber for either a baking problem or anniversary tips. The answer is simply NO!!!

Many small medium businesses are affected by these problems because they can’t afford to pay for expert advice and services like larger businesses — they rather go for anything that can help them save a buck. My question is how many times are you going to call a plumber to assist with muffins that aren’t coming out of the oven as they are supposed to ?

Everyone in business wants to have a website so people can find them anywhere they are, but for SMB’s its hard to find a web developer that can develop a website that is equivalent to a top quality website that they can afford with their small and limited budget. This is why we created buildmysite.co.za — a website builder that creates custom websites with a price plan that best suits its target market of Small to Medium businesses. This product was developed by Thirdrail, a strategic marketing and web development studio that wants to see SMB’s succeeding online.

With many amazing features from cross platform websites (meaning that your website will look beautiful on any type of device) to an easy content editing system that enables any user to add, remove and edit content, without the need of having special technical skills. In fact, adding and editing content is as easy as working with a Microsoft Word document. For up to 10 great features and a monthly maintainance fee of as little as R250.00 it’s a deal worth looking into and investing in. As a small or medium business you don’t have the time or money to waste on getting tips and advice from a plumber about a baking problem.

So this is the time to consider in investing in something that will be worth your while. I would advise visiting buildmysite.co.za to any small medium business that wants to invest in a quality website that brings results.

OppiKoppi ”Odyssey” 2014

The pre-oppi build up just was so huge, with all the artist and line up which was listed, there was no way anyone could have missed out on this one. It has been my first year in Johannesburg, so by default i was making the long trek to Northam, Limpopo.

This has been the 20th annual OppiKoppi Festival, in which it was just a little gathering on musicians and bands which performed on the little koppi back in a weekend in May 1994. The event organizers had no idea back than that the festival would turn out to be what it is today. The crowd has grown to over 20 000 festival goers, some of them which has just broken their Oppi-Virgin or some which are Oppi-Veterans.

The journey to Oppi was very much a mental and physical preparation for what was about to happen over the next 3 days, which if you ask me those 3 days felt like weeks/months. The sight of the koppi gets bigger and the music gets louder as you just approach which seems to be a magical musical wonderland. We decided to just set up the base-camp, which we didnt see much over the 3 days as the magical land was too vast and too much happenings going around throughout the 3 days.

Before heading to Oppi-Koppi, i did some homework and read many reviews on what i was about to get myself into and what our days in Odyssey was going to be like. That reviews had nothing on the what i was getting myself into. The friendly, 20 000 faces welcomes you from the time you set foot onto the farm. It felt like i knew and met these peoples for over 20 years, it was the spirit of one and no one was about to judge you for how you looked or even what you were or weren’t wearing in that case.

The music, performance and artist just took the whole festival to a whole other level and experience.  The music genres from which started off as just a Rock n Roll festival, we were coming across all genres of music such as Deep House, Trap, Dub Step, Drum and Bass, Classical, Hip Hop, Rap and even some poetry just to say. So if it was music which brought you to Oppi, than you would have gotten it all way around. The line-up of artist has us mission from one stage to the next, not wanting to miss out on any one of the artist which were performing out there. The festival lineup was just too hectic but the main headline acts were” Newtown Knife Gang”, ”The Kiffness”, ”The Wrestler, The Slut and TheDealer”, ”Metro Ticket”, ”DJ Capital”, ”DJ Soulo Starr”, ”Miss CJ”, ”Da Capo”, ”Reason”, ”Van Coke Kartel”, ”PHFat”, ”HHP”, ”The Sunday Punchers”, ”Cassper Nyovest”, ‘DJ Fresh”, ”Das Kapital” and ”Mr Green”.

(This should have been the part of the article in which i tell you much more of the 3 days events, but unfortunately that part is very much vague and was lost somewhere in the dust)

The overall experience at Oppi was really and truly a real magical journey (We witnessed many fairies, creatures, warriors, onesies, birthday suits, flying tents and magical jamming MK trojan horse). It was definitely a festival in which you had to experience and witness once in your life, but for me i would say that this was my first but it wouldn’t be my last.

Thanks to all which was involved in the Oppi-Koppi and we hope to see you all around for the next 20 years.

Big ups to all those involved with this festival and all the sponsor, ”Hilltop Live Media”, ”Windhoek Draught”, ”MK”, ”Red Bull Studio”, ”5FM”, ”MTV” and ”Rolling Stone”.
