A little later, to his 'big' brother joins compact iPad mini with a screen Retina . In the U.S., the price Apple iPad Air starts at $ 499 for a tablet without support LTE, with 16 GB of memory. Buy iPad mini there will be at least $ 399.

In this case, as usual, the price of 9.7-inch iPad next generation has not changed compared to its predecessor (all the same $ 499 in the U.S.), but the 8-inch tablet "violated" the current years tradition - the price of iPad mini new generation this time increased and being quite markedly, from $ 329 to $ 399.

The Apple Store has recently made updates available for its German news provider app, de Deutsch Online. Apple describes the app as a simple, straightforward e-news reader that would supply Germans with all the latest news and information that might come from reputable and reliable German news sources. However, before considering several app downloads, some privacy issues have been forwarded and it seems like Germans need to be more aware of how their private information is being used.

Sourcing a consumer group's statement on its website in a report by Karen Matussek of Bloomberg, eight out of the fifteen provisions in Apple's general data use terms have been hacked down by a Berlin court. The reason for this is that Apple's general data use terms are too farfetched and deviate from German laws. The Berlin court also reiterated that Apple cannot summon global consent to be able to access and utilize customer data, including their locations.

With the advent of apps being essential to many smartphones and tablets including the iPhone and iPad, ranging from social media like Facebook and Twitter to other mobile applications from PayPal to VoIP to City Maps, private information sharing is something many should be wary about. In the EU5 alone which includes France, the United Kingdom, Italy, Germany and Spain, there are about 73 million cell phone users who play mobile games on their smartphones and tablets. Eighteen million of them are so into it that they find themselves playing for several hours each day.

Individual websites have made measures to assure the privacy of users and shopping haven Nordstrom is one perfect example. The mobile shopping application makes sure that their terms and conditions are easily accessible and that their FAQs include information about their secure servers, and how users' information is being used. Social games like poker, puzzles, RPGs and many others are just some of the top applications being installed on millions of iPads and smartphones and it is only imperative for users of these mobile applications to make sure that their personal information is safe and secure by being aware of the terms and conditions of each app. So, whether you are busy in an add-to-cart spree on Nordstrom or checking on status updates over at Facebook,, make sure your personal information is being used properly and securely.

Apple's customer data sharing policies have been found violating Germany's consumer privacy protection laws. The iPhone maker has been ordered to redo the way it deals with some of the consumer data as a result, ModMYI.com reports, sourcing Bloomberg. Apple Inc. is already in the midst of a privacy lawsuit regarding its methods of information-sharing and the German situation seems to be proving that they are in quite a debacle when it comes to properly handling the private information of their users.

The head of the group Verbraucherzentrale Bundesverband or VZBV Gerd Billen intimated that the Berlin court's ruling only showcased the unparalleled but often overlooked importance of data protection for consumers in a highly and widely digitized world. "Apple had already signed a binding declaration that it wouldn't use seven of the 15 clauses VZBV had objected to before the German suit was filed, the consumer group said. The remaining eight provisions were invalidated by today's ruling, VZBV said. German law allows recognized consumer groups to sue companies over illegal terms and conditions. Apple asked customers in the terms for "global consent" to use their data, while German law requires that clients know in detail what data is used for what purpose, VZBV said. Apple also may not ask for permission to use names, addresses and phone numbers of users' contacts." (Stephen Warwick)

France is one of the easiest smartphone markets to penetrate in the world but with the French government's proposal to put taxes on mobile computers, things may get tougher for smartphone manufacturers. According to the Local News, smartphone and tablet producers like Apple and Amazon might be subjected to tax rules that will help protect the country's cultural industry. This development might trigger smartphone companies to increase the prices of their products. If this happens, only major players will get the chance to stay in France for an extended time.


One smartphone brand in France that seems unfazed by the government plan is the iPhone, particularly the iPhone 5. No, it is not because of Apple's plan to sell low-cost smartphones to cover the quickly growing smartphone market in this part of the world but because of the country's transition to the LTE network. While some smartphone brands are racing to improve their features, iPhone 5 got unexpected support from France's Bouygues Telecom. The local mobile service provider has just been authorized by French regulator Arcep to refarm its 1800Mhz spectrum the same band that is used by iPhone 5. This move will expect rival operators to step up their LTE roll-out plans, which will benefit thousands of smartphone users in the country. Once implemented, the refarming will give LTE-enabled iPhone 5 units a lift. LTE is much better than the GSM services, especially when it comes to 4G services. Smartphone units that have this capability will definitely get an advantage in market share.

LTE services, or long term evolution, will change the way the French select smartphones. People in France are very dependent on mobile internet. Mediametrie reported that the French mobile internet now has 18.3 million users or more than half of the total internet users in the country. It helps French owners easily connect to the internet to send electronic messages, do online shopping, download mobiles, or take advantage of their carriers' VoIP services. With an LTE-powered iPhone 5, everything will seem achievable on their smartphones. With LTE, they can now play mobile games or scour YouTube for videos anytime and anywhere. The dependency of the French on mobile phones and other modern devices is hardly surprising. In fact, it isn't only the French who get their routines derailed without these devices as almost anywhere in the world; people find it hard to go about their daily lives without their handy smartphones. "It's the gadget that many of us would feel lost without. And so dependent are we on our mobile phones that we check them every six-and-a-half minutes, research suggests. It found that looking at their phone is the first thing many people do each day - as they use its alarm function - and is also the last. In between, phones are used to check the internet and read emails, as well as to make calls and send texts." (Ben Spencer)

Apple's iPhone 5 may look at Bouygues Telecom's plan of LTE revolution as its main advantage in the French market. The truth is, it is more for the growth of the country's telecommunication industry. It is for the sake of online-dependent community and this is why it needs to be pushed. It is endearing if you really think about it. The French government's aim is to protect its own like a mother to a child. Imposing additional taxes on computers and other mobile devices as well as streaming of foreign music and videos would help ensure the place and growth of local talents and artists for the hugely benefit from government funding. Yes, part of the tax collected is going to be used to fund and support French artists, filmmakers and talents.

In recent decades, there have been a lot of technological innovations that surely made our life easier. We continue to do research to produce information that is vital in the invention or creation of new technological tools, which are essential in making our life more convenient. In addition, we want to have a simpler way of doing things to improve the quality of life. Below are some of the technologies that have been making our life more convenient and enjoyable:

Smartphones for Better Communication and Instant Entertainment

The latest in the evolution of electronic mobile phones is the Smartphone. Unlike cellular phones, Smartphones have more functions and features. It can be used to perform several communication actions such as checking and recording of voicemail messages, sending and receiving of SMS or MMs, making and receiving of local or long distance calls, and so much more. Aside from these, Smartphones can be used to browse the web and to check emails. This is particularly helpful if users want to visit online stores or social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. This can be done easily as Smartphones are Wi-Fi ready. Many models and brands support 3G and 4G.

Today, some of the most popular brands are Apple, Samsung, Sony and Blackberry. This year, the most recent models that consumers can purchase are Samsung Galaxy S4, iPhone 5, Blackberry Z10, and Sony Xperia Z.

eBooks for a More Convenient Reading

Since the advent of the Internet, there have been a lot of technological innovations that followed. One is the ebook or books in electronic format. Unlike the physical titles, people can store ebooks in a very small card or memory space. There is no need for bulky bookshelves and tables. Reading ebooks is much more convenient as these can be carried anywhere and anytime without suffering from any hassle. It is also advantageous as it is environmentally friendly. Why? Simply because there is no need to cut trees just to produce thousands of copies of ebooks. In this way, ebooks become much cheaper. Deduct to the cost the expenses for ink and cartridge which are also eliminated. With these, it is very clear that ebooks are more beneficial and advantageous. However, book lovers must ensure a device that has long battery life.

Voice over Internet Protocol for Enhanced Communication System

The Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) is another technology that has become possible when the Internet was invented. It is a technology or phone system that relies heavily on the Internet in so far as communication is concerned. Today, it is considered as one of the most affordable yet effective type of phone system. That is why more and more businesses such as the small to medium-sized businesses (SMBs) are switching to it. This resulted in the establishment of numerous VoIP phone service providers that offer phone services in various packages or plans. One good example is the RingCentral business VoIP that has been making a stir among SMBs. This is so because businesses particularly smaller market players found out that they can have a phone system with greater functionality and flexibility without the need to fork out huge sums of money.

Very clearly, these technologies make our life more convenient by streamlining processes. In this way, we can do more tasks within a short time frame.
