Apple Disapoints With Sept 2013 Release Of “New” Iphone 5s – Samsung Board Sighs With Relief

Here we are with yet another incremental iPhone update from the 4s. The world is still waiting for Apple to catch up to the feature set that has made Samsung take ever more market share from Apple mainly the larger screen size of the Galaxy and Note series. For the second time Apple has ignored what the market wants in lieu of telling the market what it wants. Only time will tell if Apple is correct in not making the large screen Iphones.

Samsung has made it thier goal to meet sonsumer demand no matter what it takes, and it appears for the most part to be working as they take more sales away from Apple, even having die hard Apple Iphone users dumping thier phones for the large realestate screens. Those that switch like the features although they are clearly not as refined as an Apple product, but by the time Apple releases a compatible size screen Samsung will most likely worked all the bugs out, leaving Apple wondering what happened.

Ignore the market place at your own risk, and I want a big screen. The only thing that has kept me from switching are my apps (not that big of a deal) and the plastic feel of the Samsung Galaxies (big deal).

Grace Digital GDI-IRA500 Wireless Internet Radio Adapter Featuring Pandora, NPR and SIRIUS Review

Wow, this little radio is really impressive. It has wonderful sound and was quite easy to setup. You can get many stations that are not available locally. This is great for those who have moved or those who travel and want to listen to their favorites from back home.

There are so many radio choices, its overwhelming. Pandora has become one of my favorites even though I have a sirius account. Thinking of droping the sirius because Pandora is so good, and its free. That is so amazing!

Setup can be problamatic sometimes but that is usually just the learning curve of our electronic gadgets.

For the modest price this radio continues will provide hours of enjoyment.

Lowepro SlingShot 102 AW Review

I use this now with a cannon xsi and a L 24-70 cannon lens, and a large strap. You have to be a little creative to get things right and move some dividers out of your way and out of the bag. Have room in top for full size pro flash. No room for anything else. No other lenses. I might be able to get a small lens in if I left the lens hood of my zoom out but it would be jammed in there. Fun bag that doesnt look like its screaming I have two grand and a half grand of stuff here. No one notices. This is my third Lowepro and the one I now use most
