There are some genuinely fantastic deals to be had with the original ipad, so should you rush out and buy the new ipad 2? Lets take a look at what’s on offer…
For gadget lovers all over the world we are now a few weeks into the launch of the new ipad 2 in the UK. So will you be tempted to buy? Or should you stick with the original ipad because there are some great deals to be had?
So the ipad 2 will offer video calling and is up to twice as fast because of a new dual-core A5 processor and of course is thinner and lighter. At around the same price you can see why people may be tempted by the ipad 2.
On the other hand the ipad (original) is available with some great tariffs as mobile operators look to boost ipad sales before the ipad 2 takes over.
Orange is offering 16GB Wi-Fi + 3G version of the original iPad for just 99 on a 24 month contract. Existing customers pay 25 a month, new customers, 27, for 1GB of anytime and 1GB of ‘quiet time’ data, plus unlimited BT Openzone Wif-Fi access. The 64GB version is even better value; 100 less; 249 for existing customers.
Personally I like my laptop to be mylaptop, my mobile phone to be my mobile phone and my desktop PC to be my desktop PC. I like to go running and I certainly would not take an iphone out to listen to music, let alone with an ipad stuck under my arm; that’s what my ipod nano and ipod shuffle are for! Keep things simple when it comes to gadgets that is my thinking. Perhaps that’s just becuase I’m an old fashioned kind of gadget lover…
So how does recycling your old mobile phone impact on the environment?
When you recycle something like a mobile phone it creates a circular supply chain. These types of supply chain benefit the environment in a number of ways. They reduce carbon emissions, as there is no longer a need to produce all of the components such as printed circuit boards. This has an effect further back on the supply chain, as less of the primary materials are sourced-so the carbon footprint reduces further.
Another benefit is waste management. At this point emissions are reduced as there is less metal and electronic waste (e-waste) which ends up in the landfill recycling process. Nearly all metal waste can be and is melted down to its purest form and re-used: It is important that we do this to keep scarce natural resources in circulation. Although the waste from your recycled mobile phone still has to be recycled, this it carried out by specialist, private companies and does not impact on government waste management funds.
There is an estimated 20-50 million tonnes of e-waste produced each year which can house harmful components such as lead and cadmium. This waste makes up 5% of all solid waste and with an average lifespan of only 2 years for a mobile phone (in developed countries), it can only increase.
Still think its just too much hassle to recycle your phone?
Perhaps you should think about not only the long term environmental damage e-waste will do to our planet, but the long term damage it will do to your finances. When you choose to throw away your phone with general household waste it is taken away by your local Council. This service is paid for with your taxes and if we continue to increase
Taking a slightly different take, the Nokia C3-00 cellphone offers not only a fully dedicated front-mounted QWERTY-style keyboard, but also a small, but highly effective color screen that delivers 262K colors and high-resolution for a small device. This phone operates at 75 to 1375 kbps or fast-enough to support a wide range of messaging and capability.
As you one can see, the Nokia is meant to work with the older Internet 802.11 b/g standards while it offers full texting and messaging modes. More limited that other, newer phones, the Nokia still can offer up to 8 GB of memory through optional cards. Standard memory is 55 MB.
The Nokia is a Series 40 platform and offers software updates through the Nokia Software Updater that you install on your PC. Further, it is fully RDS Radio capable and not only shows you the radio station to which you are listening, but also the artist and music or information type of the radio station. RDS (Radio Directional Service also offers roadway informational services on a sideband of the main frequency, a nice feature).
The Nokia also offers full Bluetooth compatibility so that not only can you use a Bluetooth device with the cellphone, but you can also use its Bluetooth capability to stream music through the device. It is a nice extra.
The Nokia’s video capability is a bit more limited than other cellphones on the market as it offers only 2.1 MP camera capture capability, however the camera offers up to 4X zoom as well as a full-screen viewfinder and multiple effects.
In addition, the Nokia C3-00 is compatible with the following standards, MP3, WMA, AAC and eAAC, as well as such audio formats as H.263 and H.264, AVI, MPEG-4 and WMV. Incidentally, MPEG-4 files may be stored as.mpg or.3gp files.
Sony has made the HT-CT150 3D Sound Bar System the key to all of its interconnects so that all you really need is one device to put everything together.
For example, let’s say one purchases a 65-inch Sony HDTV and Playstation III and adds in a set of Sony speakers which leads to the question: how do you connect everything up into one system that uses only one wire to take care of typing all the various pieces together?
The HT-CT150 may be that device. In reality, it is a low-powered HDMI repeater that takes audio and video signals from the pieces of your Sony home entertainment system and it ties them together, using just one cable as the return cable for audio and video.
It’s not a small system. It can’t be small to handle all of the audio inputs that it has to handle (HDTV, blu-ray player, Playstation III, Surround Sound System, 3D system, for example) and bring them back to your speakers with just one wire.
This is the tool that completes your Sony Home 3D system by providing simple interfacing ability yet yielding full surround sound ability at the same time.
The HT-CT150 has the latest decoding technology built-in so that it not only can sync up all of your varied home entertainment systems, but if you have any other Bravia systems – it is Bravia compatible – it is also able to handle syncing the Bravia systems, as well.
The HT-CT150 is versatile in that it can be shelf-mounted underneath and in back of a false front in your home entertainment center. Or, if you don’t mind having it sitting on a shelf by itself, you can also mount it on a shelf in back of your system so that it shows just how important
