With Apple not releasing its latest iOS6 update with all the new bells and whistles to the iPad 1 or the ‘original iPad,’ the company has placed many users in the spot of wondering whether to remain loyal and obedient, or to jailbreak their iPads. Many have already chosen to download redsn0w to jailbreak their tablets which aren’t really all that old and still an amazing mobile device. But in Apple’s world of rapid change and releases of newer gadgets the poor lonely iPad now kicks back error messages from apps you already own and paid for, but you can no longer use because you “must have iOS6 to run this app.” So many will opt to at least enjoy the freeing tweaks and themes and benefits from the Cydia store on their Apple step child. Get with it Apple and release your updates across the entire retail line of devices or run them from the iCloud. Not everyone upgrades with each of your device releases. Your customers deserve better.
With hurricane Sandy approaching the northeast coast we gadget fiends start to think about how we will connect to the internet or keep our gadgets charged if the power goes out for an extended period of time. So I went into my local Radio Shack store and stumbled upon this little power source. It’s made by company called Better Energy Systems Inc, “a private company based in Oakland, California with teams in the United Kingdom and Kenya. The company was founded in 2002 to design, develop, and market power products for hand held electronics.” They sell this portable solar panel under the brand name “Solio” that is powered by the sunlight, by USB charger connected to your computer, or by USB charger connected to wall outlet. This little solar panel retails for about $70 and at first I thought it was a bit steep. But it is capable of giving 2 smartphones a complete charge. If not used the charge lasts for one whole year. I’d say that is worth the $70 bucks if you are a power hungry gadget junkie like me. I’ve read that some in Kenya use this to power their home. I knew right away that I would not be the only one that would be interested in this product especially with the impending storm and the storms that come throughout the winter in the northeast that could lead to power outages. I may just go back tomorrow and buy myself a Solio pad. Sun power is the way of the future!

Windows & Operating System Tour For
We’ve been upgrading some client laptops from the old clunky Vista Home Premium or Home Basic operating system that Microsoft threw together around early 2007. ”Criticism of Windows Vista has targeted its high system requirements, its more restrictive licensing terms, the inclusion of a number of new digital rights management technologies aimed at restricting the copying of protected digital media, lack of compatibility with some pre-Vista hardware and software, and the number of authorization prompts for User Account Control. As a result of these and other issues, Windows Vista had seen initial adoption and satisfaction rates lower than Windows XP.“
We generally agree with the criticism above about it’s bloated almost restrictive use. But those with Vista on their 4-5 year old laptops are not stuck with that. If you’ve taken good care of your laptop and it has at least 3 gigs of (RAM) memory installed it would be wise to upgrade it to Windows 7, and still cheaper than buying a new laptop with the same specs. Of course you’d get much more memory and hard drive space buying a new laptop for say around $500-600, but if you cannot afford that luxury right now, and you are in the local North Jersey area, NYC, Rockland, feel free to call on us at http://www.DrMillComputerWiz.com and we will give you an estimate. Generally without the cost of the software our fees range within $160-180 for a full clean, reformat, install from Vista to Win 7 and replacing some of the software you had on there previously. Of course some of the software depends on you having the original discs, software keys, etc. But a cheaper Windows 7 upgrade option is also available if you are a student. Call us for more info and if you have been upgraded take a few minutes to watch the Win 7 Tutorial before you dive in and enjoy your new Win 7 machine!
