Look it’s Windows 8!

Our era is literally based on marketing. There is a good chance that almost anything you decide to do or buy, is based on marketing. Someone was cleaver enough to find a way and plant you a seed for the need of a product and when you reached the point to buy that product, the brand decision was somehow already made. A good example of that could be a good movie. Once a movie hero captures your complete interest, you tend to want to do things like he does. So if the hero is holding the new Nokia and pretends that he is hacking through pentagon with a single tap, you have to get that Nokia too! As if you’re gonna be a hacker just by holding that particular brand.

Leaking marketing.

Using Apple’s products for more than a decade, I can only say that I’m thrilled every time one of their keynotes is coming up or whenever they announce a new event just to introduce new products. One of the things that turned me into a true Apple fan, was the keynotes that Steve Jobs was presenting. Not only because of it’s unique keynote style, but also because of the hidden surprises he always had for us.

Can’t innovate anymore, my ass!

iPhone 5 doesn’t need a bigger screen!

Before the iPhone started to reshape the whole cell phone industry, there were a couple of standards that even though they weren’t written in any manual most of us – consumers – were basing our choices. I am referring to the design and the size! Two major points that still define the success of any device. However, after looking at most of the smartphones that pop every year, I’m starting to worry because it looks like big companies are going out of style!

Why I don’t like folders on my iPhone.

It’s in our nature to ask for what we don’t have and whine about it when we get it. I believe that’s the case here and I’m referring to how much I thought I needed the folders feature on my iPhone and now that I have them I stopped using them. Last night when I plugged my iPhone to my Mac I noticed that it has less than a gigabyte of free space! Really? I’m using 8, maybe 10 apps every day and I have zero music and videos. How can I possibly run out of space?
