Free IPhone 4 For Everyone By Christmas

By Heather Green

Do you want a Free iPhone 4 in time for Christmas ?

The shiny new iPhone 4 has been released and is currently the fastest moving handset on the market. Despite the recent signal problem just about everyone in the land is snapping them up as soon as they can on contract.

Of course there are people that want this phone but cannot, or will not have a contract and this is where there are going to be some problems.

The iPhone is not available as a PAYG package and the cost of a sim free handset is astronomical. Weighing in at 499 and 599 for the 16 and 32gb models it's probably too far out of reach for Joe Public to just go out and buy so what is the answer then. The answer is to get one completely FREE.

There is a new strategy being milked by large companies such as LoveFilm at the moment called Affiliate Marketing and these companies pay out big money to smaller affiliate organisations for them to find new customers and invite them to try the service on a free trial basis. In turn these smaller companies are offering Free Gifts to people like you to help them.

Here's how it works.

First step is to join a network. Visit for more information and signup links.

You need to then select an online offer to complete to fully activate your account and I recommend the 14 day free trial from Lovefilm, which is an online DVD rental service.

If you now look in your control panel there are a few sections and one of them is called 'Refer Friends'. If you select this you will find your own completely unique referral link. Now you need to get other people to do exactly the same as you have just done using this link.

In your control panel there is a section called Refer Friends and here you will find your own unique referral link. This is what you need to promote.

Give your referral link to as many friends and family as you can, each person who joins and completes one offer will gain you one credit towards your free iphone.

When you have collected enough credits a new button appears called Verify. Hit this button and it tells the affiliate organisation you are ready to redeem. They run a few security checks to make sure you have all played by the rules and there are no attempts at fraud, they take this pretty seriously so you must remember to make sure that you and all your referrals sign up only once, and only one account per IP address for both your account and any offers that are completed.

The time it takes to claim your free iphone is really down to you and how fast you can get friends and family to join in. The more and quicker you work the sooner you will have your free iphone.

There isn't much more to it really, follow the rules, play nice and it won't be long before your Free iPhone 4 comes knocking at your door looking for a new home.

The Motorola Milestone XT720 : The Basics Explained

By Mark Walters

The Motorola Milestone XT720 is actually the newer version of the modified Motorola Milestone, which whilst an impressive feature-packed smartphone, wasn't as well-received as hoped because of the slide out keyboard. Relaunched as the same feature-packed smartphone, but this time with more market-friendly touchscreen, and a few millimeters thinner, can the Milestone XT720 do better second time around?

The new Milestone was always going to look different to the original version, ditching the slide out keyboard has meant the new touchscreen version is slightly thinner and a little lighter - all of which counts in this market. Motorola also took the opportunity to make some other design tweaks, without straying too far from the original look, and the result is a phone that can look different depending on which side you view it from. But the end result is appealing if not stunning.

The rather unique look to the phone is designed it seems, to highlight its camera credentials, and well it might blow its own trumpet - the new Milestone comes with an incredible 8 megapixel camera. But it's not just the fact that this is larger than any of the other Android smartphones on the market that's impressive. You also get face detection, image stabilization and multi-shot features, not to mention hi definition video capture.

The Motorola Milestone XT720 runs the 2.1 version of the Android operating system, which helps make the most of the phones features, as well as giving you access to the Android market and as many apps as you could want. As you would expect form Motorola's flagship smartphone, you get the usual connectivity features such as 3G, the latest Bluetooth and WiFi. The phone also has GPS and an FM radio, but with all these features, the processor does sometimes get a little overwhelmed, and the performance can suffer. However, wishing that the phone was a little faster on occasions is a small price to pay for all the positives.

If there was any doubt that this phone was slightly underpowered, especially when compared with the usual big names in the smartphone market, Motorola users old and new will find that 8 megapixel camera hard to resist. Combined with the rest of the features that compare pretty well with the Apple, Google and HTCs of the world, the Motorola Milestone XT720 provides a feature-packed alternative that many will enjoy.

Buying Yourself A Domain Name

By Alfred Lancer

Domains are an important part of your web page, one of the most important parts because it is the address individuals will use in order to load your page. So, having a catchy and easily remembered domain name is important. The problem is, too many individuals you use domain names that are provided to them by their internet service provider. This is not the name you want your web site to have if you want to rise to the top and make the most money possible. You need to rent or buy your own domain name that has something to do with the product or service you are offering on your web page.

There are many ways in which you can register domains, or domain name, and most of the time it is relatively inexpensive and sometimes it is even free. You simply need to do a little research in order to find the domain name that works for your business and fits your budget as well.

Another thing to keep in mind when registering domains is what names are available, are the .com, .net, or .org, and if so how many of the same domains are available with different endings. For instance, if your company sells tires and you buy the domain name then you will want to know if and are also available. If so, you will also want to buy them and have them linked to your web page in order to garner more traffic.

If you already have a web site set up with a domain name you are simply using, you do not have to start completely over when you buy a new domain name. All you have to do is buy the domain name or names that adequately reflect your web sties and then have your current web site hosted by a new server that will link it to the domain name you bought.

This is not immediate and generally takes a few days, but it is worth it because now you will have a serious domain name which shows your web page is serious and not a joke. The few days you spend waiting for the transfer will be well worth your while.

So, go ahead and step up to the big leagues and get your domains today. Just go to the web and search domain names and you will be able to check and see if the names you want are available and if so you will be able to buy them. It really is as easy as that, so go ahead and try it out today. You will make up the small investment on the domain name in no time, probably even the first day!

Is The Blackberry Bold Worth Buying?

By Mark Walters

Blackberry phones have always been popular, but mostly with the suited corporate types. While some non-business consumers have seen their appeal and adopted them over the other more widely accepted smartphones, Blackberry wants more 'regular' users, and the new improvements it's made to the Blackberry Bold are designed to make this Blackberry a little less stuffy, and a bit more fun.

The new Blackberry Bold still has the same layout and design as the previous version, and the majority of Blackberry's mobiles, but a few pinches and tweaks have created a phone that is a little lighter and thinner. The polished materials and great build quality mean those who get on with the full QWERTY keyboard will get a very attractive phone, that looks and feels every bit like a high end smartphone. One of the benefits of the Bold being slightly wider (even after the recent reduction in its dimensions) is the decent sized display, with widescreen proportions. The resolution is high enough to make watching movies and viewing images enjoyable, and the text in emails, messages and on webpages is clear and crisp.

There's no shortage of connectivity options, which is usual for most smartphones, and especially one that has built its reputation on being the communication device of choice for businesses all over the world. As well as 3G, Bluetooth and WiFi, the Bold has GPS for use with the built in Blackberry Maps application. With a 3.2 megapixel camera that can record HVGA video as well as taking still shots, the Bold will have most image capture situations covered, especially as it also has auto focus, a 2x digital zoom, and an LED flash.

The Bold has also seen an improvement in its operating system, with the new Blackberry 5 OS. It's designed to be more user-friendly and intuitive, with a better design and layout that should be more appealing to the non-business user. The new Bold has better media integration, so images, movies and music are now a part of the interface, and not just an add on. The web browser performs well but can be a little slow on content rich sites. One thing you would expect the Blackberry Bold to be good at is communicating, and it doesn't disappoint. Integrated messaging and apps like Facebook Connect make keeping in touch easy and fun.

With improved looks that will help the Bold's unique look appeal to a wider audience of non-business users, and a better user interface that will be more in keeping with what the majority of smartphone users are looking for, the latest Bold could have what it needs to convince people it's not all work and no play.

Blackberry Curve - It's Out And It's Good!

By Mark Walters

When you mention the name Blackberry, most people think about suit wearing business types, who simply couldn't live without their quirky looking mobile phone that keeps them in touch with emails and share prices 24/7. Blackberry knows it has a bit of a reputation as the business-only smartphone, but they have set their sights on taking Blackberrys to the masses, and with the increased demand for sophisticated smartphones, has the time come for the Blackberry Curve?

Blackberry phones are renowned for their full-sized keyboard and rather chunky looks, and the Curve is no different. Most people will either love or hate the keyboard layout and slightly wider feel of the Curve, although it doesn't feel overly big, and its size does have the additional benefit of allowing space for one of the few 'widescreen' displays on the smartphone market. With a choice of colors to give your phone a little personality, Blackberry is keen to make the Curve a little less stuffy.

The Curve has had a few cost-saving changes made to it, which also help to make it more appealing to the everyday user. Gone is the chrome trim in favor of a rubber one, and a trackpad has replaced the trackball seen on the business versions, but these changes don't do anything to reduce the appeal of the look and feel of the Curve.

Blackberry hopes that consumers will love the Curve for the same reasons that business users have loved the other Blackberrys, and that's for keeping in touch. With more and more smartphones being used for email and social networking, the Curve's software and QWERTY keyboard, plus it's WiFi connectivity, mean it's ideal for this purpose, even if it lacks the 3G and GPS features of it's more expensive smartphone competitors.

Blackberry's intuitive operating system works well on the Curve. The user interface is nicely laid out and simple to use, and there is access to a wide range of applications via Blackberry's App World, to add even more of the features that you need. Despite its business roots, the Curve has a very good music player, with dedicated keys for the main functions, and the technology inside the Curve keeps everything running at a decent pace.

It seems that Blackberry has been able to come up with a smartphone that will be as popular with consumers as it has been with business users, for much the same reasons. Easy to use, great for what most will need, and not as expensive as the other big names, the Blackberry Curve offers a real alternative.

The Nokia N8

By Mark Walters

Most people who have a mobile phone will more than likely have had a Nokia at some point in their life, which is an indication of just how big a part of the mobile market the Finnish company are. However, you'd be hard pushed to find many people who would say they have ever had a true smartphone from Nokia. There have been feature-packed mobiles but nothing that was ever really going to worry HTC and Apple - until now. With the launch of the Nokia N8, Nokia is looking to show its smartphone credentials.

There's no denying the Nokia N8 is a good looking phone, which is nothing new in today's smartphone market, but is quite an achievement for Nokia. With attractive lines and good proportions it looks like Nokia has been taking design lessons. The shape and size are enhanced by the quality of the aluminum casing, which all works together to give the N8 the quality look and feel that offers a serious challenge to the current market leaders. The fact that there's no way to remove the battery doesn't just help make the phone look good, but also sends the message that Nokia have got the operating system right as well, and you won't be fiddling around with the battery to try and reset your phone.

The 3.5 inch touchscreen display is a decent size without being anything outstanding, and is capable of providing clear and bright images on the N8. What is outstanding however, is the amazing 12 megapixel camera that Nokia has shoehorned into the N8. With claims that it is the best phone camera available anywhere, Nokia is obviously keen to demonstrate that it still has the ability to compete in the smartphone market. As well as the incredible still shots you would expect from such a hi-spec camera, you also get the ability to record video in 720p high definition. Plus, if the 3.5 inch screen on the N8 isn't quite enough for you, the mini HDMI output that's neatly tucked away, will let you hook it up to your HDTV and watch your videos in all their glory.

Nokia was keen to make sure the N8 wasn't just a one trick pony, and the amazing camera is only part of the N8's story. It also gets a new operating system, being the first phone to offer the Symbian 3 platform. A powerful processor makes sure everything zips along nicely, and with 16GB of storage for your music files, and an attractive player to make the most of them, the N8 certainly has a few more tricks up its sleeve.

It's not often that you find yourself getting excited about the launch of a Nokia smartphone, but this time it looks like the Nokia N8 could actually be a serious contender. As long as the headline grabbing improvements that Nokia has included all work together, the N8 could at last give Nokia a seat at the smartphone top table.

The Expected Future Of Apple's Iphone In The Next 5 Years.

By Jordan Pizarro

If we are to consider the facts and figures, the Apple Iphone has already made approximately 12.992 million sales of its unit world wide since its release of the iPhone 3GS.

With this, they have also reported that they too have sold the newly released iPhone 4 a awesome 1.7 million units in the first 3 days alone since they released it at stores just last June 24. Just basing from these figures we maybe able to conclude that the iPhone will still be quite popular even in the next coming 5 years or so.

With such popularity, one may think why does the iPhone attract so many patrons and users considering the fact that there have been some negative reports about it in the past.

Specially when they first introduced the iPhone 4, we have already heard some rumors that it has some issues regarding its reception and just recently, its a concern that was actually acknowledged by Apple. They have given a formal apology and have promised to release a free download software to correct this flaw on the phones signal bar strength.

They have already told their clients that if they are just completely not satisfied with their iPhone, then they can simply get a refund on their money providing that they return the unit only within 30 days upon purchase with out damage.

In the midst of these issues, we can still find a very large number of people in US, Canada and in UK who are still interested to get Apple products. In a recent survey, at least 83% of users would still prefer their iPhone compared to other brands of smart phone in the market and would even be interested to get iPhone insurance as well for their Apple unit.

Though in Japan, they have a more different way of looking at the iPhone. It is very unpopular amongst Japanese citizens due to the fact that they are more into pictures and videos which are some what weak points in the Apple iPhone.

Analysts are assuming that it will take some marketing ingenuity to actually tap at least half Japan's phone consumers since most of them do not really patronize foreign brands.

But Apple need not worry since we see a very stable trend in other countries in US and Europe. The demand for iPhone apps and accessories are still a consistent high ranking term in Google searches.

The continual demand for iPhone insurance and production of other accessories sure does prove that the iPhone is here to stay until the next generation. There will be another version of the iPhone, maybe an iPhone 5 or iPhone 6i but the basic look and feel of the original will never be taken out of Apple's design.

4 Reasons Why Some People Aren't Crazy About IPad

By Alfred Lancer

Many waited in line for the release of Apple's 'revolutionary' tablet PC, the iPad. But many, too, shrugged their shoulders with indifference and dissatisfaction over the fact that this almighty device would not deliver on its promise. Well, these two opposing views clearly show how polarized people are with iPad. Let us take a look at a few things that make iPad a not-so-hot item for some.

iPad 2.0 will be available soon, so why bother? This is a big issue. The currently released iPad is a big disappointment for many and that doesn't help much with Apple's efforts to make its newest tablet PC a big hit. Whether the disappointments of the general public - techies, mostly - are justified or not, it still hurts Apple's sales. It still, in many ways, discouraged quite a huge number of people from buying the product.

But on top of this issue is the expectation that Apple will release a new, upgraded version soon. (Maybe this time, iPad will come with a built-in camera.) People would rather wait for the upgraded version, which many expect will offer a substantially improved version of its predecessor. Following this line of thinking, people would rather wait for one full year or two than dole out their more than $500 on a device that will soon be replaced.

It doesn't support Flash. Ok, big deal. Apple seems to have a thing for Adobe's Flash, a standard on the web. Flash is what most websites and rich media are built with. It's the program that runs videos, audios and games that have saturated the online world. But Apple seem not to like it. The company prefers a more stable, less vulnerable to hack platform. It prefers its own HTML5. It only makes perfect sense that all Apple's products - iPad included - runs on this platform and not on Flash.

What most people don't quite get though is that nearly all websites on the internet use Adobe Flash. For the end users, this means that when visiting websites using iPad's browser, Safari - glorious and beautiful as it is - there would still be some problems that may be encountered. Big problems. No Hulu and HBO for now, buddy.

No built-in camera. Na ah. Before Steve Jobs formally presented iPad to the public, everyone thought it's a no-brainer that Apple will attach a camera to the device. Apparently, iPad doesn't carry one and there seems to be no clear indication that iPad 2.0 will have one. For now, iPad can't be used for taking snapshots of yourself or for making video calls over Skype or YM.

You only get to multitask when running Apple's native applications. iPad runs on iPhone's OS, fine. What is not okay though is that the same limitations on iPhone are experienced with the iPad. Say goodbye to multitasking.

If you are a regular user and if you see iPad as nothing more than a sophisticated, multifunctioning multimedia player/toy/laptop hybrid, it won't be much of a problem. But if you live your life online, you'll be stumped. There is no way you can listen to iTunes while making a video call using Skype.

A Garmin Nuvi 260W has its own antenna built-in to it already and it doesn't make you recharge it from time to time because it has rechargeable lithium-ion battery that can survive even up to five hours of straight use and that's even without power. That is why it's great even when you're on a long trip. A JPEG picture viewer, world travel clock with auto time zones, currency converter, measurement converter, calculator, and others are some of those useful travel tools that are also parts of this device's package.

Normally, the standard content of that Nuvi 260W box, aside from the device itself, are its quick start manual, dashboard disc, vehicle power cable and the vehicle cup mount. What's not available, though, are the SD card and the USB cable that can also be plugged into this gadget. Despite its absence, you don't have to worry because both are compatible with various types. Therefore, you can look for them at any store and if the need arise, you can even purchase several of them.

Despite its wonderful features and capabilities, this nuvi lacks a certain capability, and that is to work with operating systems such as Windows 95, 98, or Millennium. The rest are compliments and admirations. Through this unit, travelling is not only safe and sound; it's also full of fun and entertainment. Basically, that makes it the best tool that you can ever have while you're taking down that road towards anywhere you wanted to go. No doubt, features such as the FM traffic receiver, auto reroute, and the free Garmin Garage will surely be in for most drivers. So, what are you waiting for?

Getting A Cell Phone That You Dont Pay For

By Tony Earls

A technological era is one way to describe the age we are living in. Ten years ago, touchscreen phones were only a distant dream but now they are a norm. But not everyone can afford them. When you have a family to feed and bills to pay, getting a phone falls from your list of priorities. Luckily the government understands such dilemmas, and offers free phones to the individuals that cannot afford them.

These are not exactly the next-generation phones with Wi-Fi and operating systems, but they will get you talking. Only one is given per household as per the regulations. They are best used during times of emergencies since they dont have a lot of talk-time. This is dependent on some states though, but the range is from 55 minutes to about 250 minutes per month.

If you are on the lower end of this range, then its best to use the phone during emergencies only. If by some chance you dont, the minutes are carried over to the next month, so in time they do accumulate. If you need more minutes than the government is offering, you can always purchase more.

You will not be eligible for these free phones if you have a lavish lifestyle. But if you struggle with low-wages and are a member of a public aid program like Medicaid, then you can qualify. Records of how much you make every year are important in finalizing the decision.

The free government phones are not available in all states- as of yet. Its not exactly easy with so many specifics to address, but its a long term goal to have every state within the program. You can confirm the eligibility of your state by logging in to a providers website like Lifelink. And if it is included, you can make the application, as it is simple and straightforward. If you qualify, the free phone is given to you together with the approved free minutes.

Perhaps a round of applause should be given to the government for this attempt to enable people to stay in touch. Being a low-wage earner is now not reason enough to stay without a phone when the government is giving them away for free. There are no strings attached, so you neednt be skeptical about it. And when you finally want to give up being in the program, you can keep the phone if you want to.

News And Public Record Search

By Thomas Jaytee

It seems like you can find out an awful lot about other people with a public record search, does it not? Whether or not this is a good thing is certainly up for debate, though. But the point remains that your history, and that of many others, are sort of up for grabs on the internet, so who is watching out for you? And why are you looking for anybody else?

To begin, why would one want to do a search on an individual. Businesses in the process of hiring individuals certainly would, and have long relied on information provided from those who know the applicant. This serves to weed out liars and otherwise undesirable individuals from entering into that particular work place. This seems fair enough to most.

Another common example of acceptable background checks is when entering into a lease agreement. After all, would you want to rent an apartment to a person who writes bad checks or has been evicted previously? Chances are that you would not. Whether or not this is fair is debatable for certain, but the fact that this sort of information gathering is commonly practiced is not.

Potential mates have been known to look each other up online, with mixed results. Some dating coaches advocate looking up things like financial records and arrest reports of potential partners. While this is usually rather difficult to do, some have had some success, much to the embarrassment of others.

As to those with pasts, or questionable presents, many have been irreparably damaged by dug up dirt and gossip. An example is the spate of homosexual outings that occur from time to time. Here lines may be crossed as well, for what consenting adults do on their own is up to them, or so it would seem. Some feel that public figures deserve greater scrutiny. The problem is that with the internet we all have the potential for being a public figure.

This is not to say that this sort of information is all bad. In fact, some has been tremendously good. Families have been reunited, children separated at a young age have found each other, and genealogists are at the forefront of putting together vast amounts of personal information into historical wholes. Research of this type, in general, has been very beneficial to many.

Doing a public record search is something that is available to all of us. Whether you are the searcher or the one being searched seems to skew the opinion one has on the process. Privacy is changing very rapidly in this electronic age, so where does the responsibility lie? Perhaps the individual on either side of this issue should rethink their reasons for doing so.

We've Found The Very Best Top Paid Android Applications

By Jennifer Christian

Nobody wants to drop their hard earned cash on things they won't use. This is true whether you are spending one hundred dollars, twenty dollars or fifty cents. Of course, there are simply some applications that are just not as good as the trial or free versions. Figuring out which paid Android apps are superior to the free versions of the same programs is difficult. Obviously you want the best applications available but you don't want to spend money on an app that turns out to be a dud. This means that you should keep reading this article. Here are the best top paid Android applications that we could find.

No matter what you think of the name, Greed is a very affordable application for Android. It's name makes it sound money-related but it doesn't have anything to do with money management. You will use this Android app to keep up with all of your RSS feeds. The app costs less than three bucks and for that small amount you will be able to share and track all of your favorite site feeds that you read through your Google Reader. For people who enjoy reading blogs and news sites, the app will allow them to keep up with all of the latest posts and uploads to their favorite sites. You don't have to worry about missing any stories or posts. In addition to allowing you to read your feeds even when your phone is offline, it also helps you manage podcasts and connect to twitter.

QuickOffice for Android is one of the most popular paid apps for the Android phone. Though there is no actual price listed, the app is great for people who spend a lot of time at work but not in their offices. This app allows you to open MS Word and Excel files that you store on your phone on the memory card or as Gmail attachments. This application allows table formatting, text wrapping and images. Unfortunately the type of files this app allows you to access is limited. You will only be able to access the most recent forms of MS Word and MS Excel.

Android users who do not have the patience for scrolling through menus to get to the apps they want would be well served by the BetterCut app. This paid Android application helps you create shortcuts to any application and place that application on your home screen. This is good for those who have favorite apps but not a lot of time to look for them in their phones. App users can also make new icons and change old icons without having to use their slide out keyboards.

Most people purchase smart phones because they want the fun of being able to play with apps. You might have even purchased your Android phone simply because you had app fever! Obviously, figuring out which of the top paid Android applications is the most worth your money can feel scary. This is probably because you want to have fun but you're afraid you won't make good investments. The last thing you want to do is spend money on an app that isn't worth your time or that you end up not using often.

What Is Television On Internet

By Areelitaha Joahlanski

If you are like me you are wondering what television on internet means. There are several advantages to using the Satellite direct software that is offered. You can not only get rid of the need for a technician but you can also get rid of the monthly bill that you are currently paying for your satellite television.

Not to mention the price for installation and the price for activation. We all know that we can watch a few television shows and movies on the internet and we can even listen to music.

Another advantage is that you can connect directly to your television from your computer. This is a lot better than paying a monthly fee because it is only a one time fee. I am a person who does not like to pay a fee each and every single month because it gets to be quite costly and I would love to be able to have this service.

One of the best things about this service is that you can take your laptop with you and watch satellite television whether you are on a trip (as long as you are not driving) or if you have to sit in a waiting room for a long time. You can listen to music and even watch movies and news on your laptop.

The other advantages are that you do not need the extra equipment that other companies offer, you can cut back on the price that you pay the company to rent their products. It is so easy and you can even watch thirty five hundred channels without having to worry about your dish going out if there is a storm.

If you have not considered the television on the internet you should research it and see what it is all about. If you think the price they charge is too much then you should add up how much you are paying annually for the service that you have already. You will probably come to find that you will be saving a lot of money by switching.

Developer Platforms To Develop Mobile Applications For In 2010

By Adriana Noton

If there's anything more exciting than the flood of mobile applications being churned out, it is the race among platforms to develop applications for in 2010. Old players like Nokia are jostling with Apple and Google, with the BlackBerry app in between the old and the new.

Let's start by listing all the major mobile application development platforms. The main ones are, of course, the RIM Blackberry, Google Android, Apple iPhone, Nokia Symbian and Windows Mobile. Industry insiders will also know of Qualcomm BREW and Sun J2ME.

BlackBerry application development has a clear head start over Apple and Google - 55% market share in North America, 20 million subscribers on App World and app downloads approaching a million per day. So the RIM platform offers a better view of how this application will look over the next year, or in the next 5 years.

It's best for new developers to gain an understanding of how data moves around on wireless networks. Next step is to decide on a development environment. In this case, developers have a choice of either Java development or web development.

Working with Java necessitates a certain amount of expertise and comfort with direct coding and the logic behind it. Web development, on the other hand, is recommended for new developers who might be more comfortable with the 'put-it-together' environment offered by Microsoft Visual Studio. The RIM developer portal has plenty of documentation, downloads, support and simulators for both environments.

The RIM developer portal also offers useful mobile app development tools. Developers should start by downloading either the BlackBerry Java Plug-in for Eclipse v1.1 or the BlackBerry Widget SDK v1.0. This means using either Java 5.0 or BlackBerry Device Software v5.0.

Another helpful download is the BlackBerry Theme Studio, used to create custom smart phone themes, mobile websites and animated content for these kinds of phones. The themes and graphics can be tested on all devices and operating systems using the simulators. Developers can also submit themes on the App World vendor portal.

Minimum requirements before downloading the web plug-in for Eclipse or Visual Studio include a system that has as the OS Windows XP, Windows Vista or Windows 7. Developers will need to have either Eclipse or Microsoft Visual Studio installed before the web plug-in can be installed.

New developers usually get bottlenecked at the beginning, when it's hard to make choices without knowing what it means. BlackBerry makes it easy by taking them forward in simple steps. There's also a support network in the form of local developer groups and a video library that demonstrates clearly what needs to be done.

Note that BlackBerry is not the only one that offers all this. Apple developers looking to build an iPhone app or Google's Android developers have all the same help. But there is a certain difference in how easy (or not) it is for new developers. Developers can jump right in and start off on day one - the tools are that sophisticated and easy to use.

The Galaxy S, The Samsung Vibrant

By Mark Edwons

Another recent entry into the global smartphone market, Samsung's Vibrant is a highly discussed phone of the Samsung Galaxy S series, creating new competition for contending phones like the Droid, iPhone and Evo. The exciting new phone, which features a four inch display with a Super AMOLED touch screen and HD quality videos, has become the most talked phone for many users. The Samusng Vibrant is slimmer and thinner than the Droid X and EVO, and weighs the least of these cell phones, at 4.16 ounces. The Samsung Vibrant runs on the android 2.1 OS and uses the TouchWi 3.0 interface, designed by Samsung. The Samsung vibrant also features a 1 GHz processor and 16GB of internal memory.

While the samsung vibrant does not have flash, the high quality 5.0 megapixel camera ensures high quality videos and pictures. In addition, Samsung loaded its phone with many goodies, including James Cameron's feature length film Avatar, the Sims 3, and access to Slacker Radio. Other notable entertainment programs include: MobiTV, Amazon Kindle, GoGo Inflight internet service, and the Samsung Media Hub. Consumers can download and purchase thousands of applications through the android market.

The Samsung phone, newly released, is already attracting much attention, and has instantly barreled its way to the top of many consumers' wish-list for pda phones. Out of all the Galaxy S series phones, the sleek Samsung Vibrant earned top marks for its smooth design. The new phone features many new developments of the Samsung phone industry, such as the super-crisp Super AMOLED touch screen, which delivers stunning, rich colors and gives reason for the phone's name. Adding to the functionality of the touch screen, which should be protected with one of the many Samsung Vibrant screen protectors, the phone utilizes the Swype software, which allows for more efficient typing and texting.

Along with all the great preloaded content and applications, the Vibrant also delivers excellent call quality. This smooth, sleek phone serves as a great entry point for Samsung's involvement in the pda phone industry, however, due to all the features stuffed into the phone, it suffers a bit from bad battery life. A customer should invest in some Samsung Vibrant accessories like an extra wall or car charger to combat the poor battery.

Despite minor complaints of the plastic and slick feel of the phone, which can be remedied with Samsung Vibrant cases, the phone overall has substantiated much praise in major review sites as well as blogs. The improved interface, vibrant screens, and included applications have immediately set the phone as a direct competition to the iPhone and other related smartphones. Furthermore, Samsung promises a faster and more efficient platform after the release of Android 2.2. As such, the release of the Samsung Vibrant has also provided a long awaited alternative to the myTouch for T-mobile's smartphone industry. Though late in the race to dominate the smartphone market, Samsung proved it could deliver with the release of the Vibrant. Ultimately the Samsung Vibrant presents a lot of potential among competing phones as well as Samsung's involvement in the market as a company.

How To Geocode Business Address And Increase Search Engine Optimization Through Maps

By Drew Kesler

There are thousands of business websites around the world that show maps to promote their business locations. These maps are common sights for any one surfing the net. However, how are these maps made? What other purposes do they serve aside from simply showing location? In this article find out how a map can affect search engine optimization. Also, find out how you can geocode your addresses to create more dynamic maps that are perfect for your business.

Whenever you search online you may notice these pages: "Locations" and "Contact Us." Usually, these pages include simple maps that basically show where businesses are located. There are some websites that display their maps in a more interactive way. These maps are hyperlinked to free mapping softwares like Google Earth and Google Maps for better viewing experience.

You would agree that an interactive map is far better than a simple map right? Yes some interactive maps are products of costly geocoding services but there are again free mapping software that lets you map minus the cost. An example is Google Maps API. Here are some tips on how you can use it effectively.

1. Sign up with Google Maps API to secure the API key you need to transport the map from your domain name.

2. Geocode your address. Wikipedia defines geocoding as "the process of finding associated geographic coordinates (often expressed as latitude and longitude) from other geographic data, such as street addresses, or zip codes (postal codes). With geographic coordinates the features can be mapped and entered into Geographic Information Systems, or the coordinates can be embedded into media such as digital photographs via geotagging." Quite simply, you need to change your business address into latitude and longitude coordinates manually or with the help of software mapping tools. Manual geocoding requires GPS but it is not necessary to purchase a geocoder if you will use it only once. Again you use free geocodes like what Google Maps API offers. Just a down side, this may prove challenging to those who have little knowledge in programming languages.

3. After geocoding, always check the map to ensure that everything is without error.

4. Finally don't forget to include your business information such as business name, address and contact numbers. These are needed for search engine optimization. The details you provide will be used to affiliate your website to business directories. Keywords are as you may know the backbone of SEO.

These tips should allow your business to be noticed in the world wide web. You can now create dynamic maps and market your business effortlessly.

For Kids Who Need Help With Writing

By Danny Ricks

It is a nice feeling that one is able to raise children. However, once children grow up and are sent to school, things change very quickly. Somehow, there are many things that must be done at some points as there are a lot of qualms that should be overcame. And although it is a bit wearisome, you need to be there for your kids. Children love it better when their parents set time aside for them and that also means that you must extend help to them when they need it. Is there any reason for a parent to strip his or her children that kind of joy and assurance? Well then it is very important that they should get help with writing like their kids too.

Having this kind of help do not necessarily mean that parents should hire all the best teachers that they know of, that would be a bit expensive, if not totally unrealizable. Although there are times when parents could not really hire the best minds to teach and impart knowledge to their kids, it is also very important that they get some keys or tools that would help them learn effectively. Here are some of the things that would help your children in school.

The very first thing that would help you is a tool in phonics. By definition, it is a way of teaching someone to read and write through association of the word to the sound that it makes. For instance, you may want to teach your kids how to read and write words or illustrate the difference of p and f sounds, and then you would have to look for tools that will back those up. A very common thing t use is the visual aids. You may get words that begin with those and let the kids identify and jot down the word.

Another means to help your kids write is to have this "a word a day" wall in their bedroom. Each day, they will look at the word, learn how to spell it and the next days after it, they will be able to speak and write it well. You need not go overboard you know. Their need for help with writing should be systematic and not too drastic.

Third of the great options is by using games as a way of teaching them. There are a couple of times when children get bored with the very stiff and plain setting in the classroom. Well then, they would need some new and sizzling games to help them out with that. There are available resources available online that will provide you with games and some other similar activities that are going to please children.

Lastly, it will help if you would check your kids on a constant basis. It might be through small talks with the teacher or through scanning their notebooks. Often, there are kids who know but are just shy. Thus, they never get to show how intelligent they are. Hearing the feedback from the teachers will help you evaluate how good your kids are faring in the school set up. Most often, the teachers will give you the hint on what type of help with writing they will need. With that, you could find better ways to make kids learn better.
