Apple Responds to the Market With New Products
New products are on their way from Apple. The tech firm made it clear they have lots of items in their pipeline at their WWDC Conference this month.
First off is the company’s answer to Amazon’s Echo and Google’s Home called the HomePod. It is a seven inch device that will integrate Siri into an Echo/Home like case. You can use it to check the news, weather and control your smart home devices.
HomePod will offer an enhanced music experience. A feature called “Musicologist” will work with Apple music and stream the songs you request from Siri. The sound is designed to fill the room and take it to a level beyond what Amazon and Google are offering.
The device will be available in black or white. Price is around $349. The launch date is anticipated in December just in time for the holiday season.
Need a new desktop? Apple is updating its iMac with improved retina displays, a boost in graphics, Kaby Lake processors and a USB-C plug-in.
An iMac Pro is also on the way. This high-end machine has a 5K display with improved cooling capacity, and 8-core Xeon processor which is upgradeable up to 18-core. It also includes up to 4TB of SSD, up to 128GB of ECC memory, four Thunderbolt 3 ports, and built-in 10GB Ethernet.
Pricing is what you would expect from Apple. The new iMac starts at $1,099 for the 21.5-inch model, and $1,299 for the 4K model. MacBook Pro starts at $1,299, which includes the updated Kaby Lake processor. For those with deep pockets the iMac Pro with the Xeon processor starts at a whopping $4,999. Again a December shipping date in expected.
Speaking of “Pros” how about a new iPad Pro? The device will be available in three sizes including a brand new 10.5 inch model. Similar to the iPhone 7 it comes with a 12-megapixel camera and a 7MP selfie cam.
The iPad Pro supports USB 3.0 with 10 hours of battery life. A new feature called ProMotion reduces the Apple Pencil’s latency to 20 milliseconds. It adjusts the refresh rate based on what you are watching and can double it up to 120Hz. The 10.5 inch iPad Pro starts with a 64GB configuration. Pricing begins at $649. You can pick one up now.
Also of note is Apple’s new operating system, iOS11. It is in beta stage and has been released to developers. One area it will improve is multitasking on the iPad. Users will be able to pull up an app from the dock and drag it onto the screen in split-screen version. Like a MacBook you can use touch to hold and drag folders, files or photos. You can even drop them in a different app such as Mail or iMessage. The Apple Pencil will also enable handwritten text to be searchable from the Notes app.
The Apple Watch is also getting a “face lift”. New faces will display new bits of information such as Siri reminders. A Fitness Focus update provides NFC-enabled data sharing with gym equipment. Pair the two and you get the latest calorie burn and activity level.
Apple is letting developers know their tree is full of interesting new products and upgrades. It will be interesting to watch how the public responds in this latest round of Apple picking.

Network Design Process – Effective Network Planning and Design
The network planning and design methodology describes a process with 9 specific steps and a sequence for those activities. As mentioned it is an engineering life cycle that supports technical initiatives such as Windows migration, IP telephony and wireless design to name a few examples. The methodology begins with examining company business requirements. It is absolutely essential that you understand the company business model, business drivers and how they are growing from a business perspective. That will build the foundation for a design proposal that serves the business, technical and operational requirements of the company.
STEP 1: BUSINESS REQUIREMENTS
Any design project starts with an understanding of what the company does and what they need to accomplish from a business perspective. This begins with an understanding of their business model, which really describes how their company works from an operational and business perspective to generate revenues and reduce costs. Many vendors today have conducted their own return on investment (ROI) studies for new implementations such as Unified Communications and Telephony. It is an effective sales tool that illustrates the cost benefits compared with investment over a specified period of time.
This is a list of some typical business drivers:
• Reduce Operating Costs
• Generate Revenue
• Client Satisfaction
• Employee Productivity
This is a list of some typical project business requirements:
• Budget Constraints
• Office Consolidations
• Company Mergers and Acquisitions
• Business Partner Connectivity
• Telecommuter Remote Access
• Implement New Offices and Employees
• New Data Center Applications
• Reduce Network Outage Costs
• Cost Effective Network Management
• Vendor Contracts
STEP 2: DESIGN REQUIREMENTS
Now that you understand the basic business requirements of the company, you can determine the standard and specific design requirements. The design requirements process is focused on defining requirements from a technical perspective. Those requirements along with the business requirements will build the framework that is used to define infrastructure, security and management. Design requirements are defined as standard and miscellaneous. The standard design requirements are generic and represent those considered with many design projects. Miscellaneous requirements are those that aren’t defined with any of the standard requirements.
• Standard Design Requirements
• Standards Compatibility
• Rapid Deployment
STEP 3: NETWORK ASSESSMENT
A network assessment is conducted after we have finished the business and design requirements of the company. A network assessment provides a quick snapshot of the current network with an examination of the infrastructure, performance, availability, management and security. That information is utilized for making effective strategy recommendations and design proposals to the client concerning specific information systems modifications. The network assessment model has 3 sequential activities, which are assessment, analysis and recommendations. The current network is examined using five primary surveys: infrastructure, performance, availability, management and security. When the surveys are completed, the information collected is then reviewed for trends, problems and issues that are negatively affecting the network.
STEP 4: INFRASTRUCTURE SELECTION
After doing an network assessment we are ready to start selecting specific infrastructure components for the network design. This phase starts building the infrastructure with a specific sequence that promotes effective equipment selection and design. It is important that you consider business requirements, design requirements and the network assessment when building your infrastructure.
The following numbered list describes the specific infrastructure components and their particular sequence.
1. Enterprise WAN Topology
2. Campus Topology
3. Traffic Model
4. Equipment Selection
6. Routing Protocol Design
8. Naming Conventions
9. iOS Services
10. Domain Name Services
11. DHCP Services
STEP 5: SECURITY STRATEGY
We must now define a security strategy for securing the infrastructure. The need for enterprise network security shouldn’t be ignored with the proliferation of the Internet. Companies are continuing to leverage the public infrastructure for connecting national and international offices, business partners and new company acquisitions. The security requirements and network assessment recommendations should drive the selection of security equipment, protocols and processes. It identifies what assets must be protected, what users are allowed access and how those assets will be secured.
STEP 6: NETWORK MANAGEMENT STRATEGY
This section will define a network management strategy for managing all equipment defined from infrastructure and security. It is necessary to define how the equipment is going to be monitored and determine if the current management strategy is adequate or if new applications, equipment, protocols and processes must be identified. Management components are then integrated with infrastructure and security to finish building the proposed design. These primary elements comprise any well-defined management strategy and should be considered when developing your strategy.
• 7 Management Groups
• SNMP Applications
• Monitored Devices and Events
STEP 7: PROOF OF CONCEPT
All infrastructure, security and management components must now be tested with a proof of concept plan. It is important to test the current design, configuration and iOS versions in a non-production environment or on the production network with limited disruption. Implementation of newer network modules at a router, for instance, could require that you change the current iOS version that is implemented. Making those changes could affect WAN or campus modules already installed at production routers. That is the real value of doing a proof of concept and certifying that the new equipment and iOS versions integrate with each device as well as the network. The following list describes the advantages of doing a proof of concept with your network design. The proof of concept test results should be examined and used to modify current infrastructure, security and management specifications before generating a design proposal. The proof of concept model suggested here involves prototype design, equipment provisioning, defining tests, building equipment scripts and examining test results.
1. Prototype Design
2. Provision Equipment
3. Define Tests
4. Build Equipment Scripts
5. Review Test Results
STEP 8: DESIGN PROPOSAL/REVIEW
With the proof of concept finished, you are now ready to build a design proposal for the design review meeting. Your intended audience could be the Director, CIO, CTO, Senior Network Engineer, Consultant or anyone that is approving a budget for the project. It is important to present your ideas with clarity and professionalism. If a presentation is required, power point slides work well and could be used to support concepts from the design proposal document. The focus is on what comprises a standard design proposal and the sequence for presenting that information.
The working design proposal is presented to the client after addressing any concerns from proof of concept assurance testing. The design review is an opportunity for you to present your design proposal to the client and discuss any issues. It is an opportunity for the client to identify concerns they have and for the design engineer to clarify issues. The focus is to agree on any modifications, if required, and make changes to the infrastructure, security and management before implementation starts. Business and design requirements can change from when the project started which sometimes will necessitate changes to infrastructure, security and management specifications. Any changes should then go through proof of concept testing again before final changes to the design proposal.
STEP 9: IMPLEMENTATION
The final step will have us defining an implementation process for the specified design. This describes a suggested implementation methodology of the proposed design, which should have minimal disruption to the production network. As well it should be efficient and as cost effective as possible. As with previous methodologies there is a sequence that should be utilized as well. Once the implementation is finished, there is monitoring of the network for any problems. Design and configuration modifications are then made to address any problems or concerns.

How We Write Cell Phone Reviews
We test a variety of electronic products in our test center and our cell phone review team is the busiest. This is because phone market is the busier as compared to other gadgets. Lots of cell phones are coming in market; some are master pieces while some are disaster pieces. When we write cell phone reviews we look for the following factors.
The display of a cell phone is the first thing that you are bound to look at in a phone. If the phone is high end, we need a big resolution because it gives you lot of real estate to work on. Phones mostly uses LCDs for screen but some high end devices have now started to use AMOLEDs and OLED displays. This technology gives you better quality but they also come at a premium.
Not all phones have keypads. Smartphones are dumping this to have a bigger screen. Some smartphones have a slide out QWERTY keyboards. If the phone has a slider interface we look for smooth movement at the joints. The keyboards must be spacey and should give good typing experience. The buttons should also be elevated above the surface which makes typing easier.
Music player is very important in a cell phone. People look for good music player in a phone because they don’t want to carry a separate PMP. Service providers also offer a variety of services for music purchase. When we write cell phone reviews we check if the music quality is good. We also look for features like playlist creation on-the-fly and repeat and shuffle modes. Finally a high end smartphone must have a 3.5 mm jack which lets us plug in any standard headphones.
If you are a shutter bug freak on a stiff budget, you are likely to purchase a smartphone with good camera. 2 MP cameras are outdated; we think manufacturers should put in 5 MP or atleast 3.2 MP cameras on their products. In our reviews we also give additional points if the camera is equipped with mirror and flash.
The cost of the phone must do justice to the features. When people read our reviews they will probably check the cost first. If the handset doesn’t have good features or if the features don’t perform well (for example – a 5 MP camera might give poor photos) then a high price will turn off potential customers. Also if the price is low and the features are good, then we strongly recommend the phone to our readers.
This might depend on the type of the phone. If it has inbuilt GPS, it must perform well, if it is a business smartphone, the messaging features must be top notch. While writing reviews, we also check if there are any games to play during leisure. Finally the battery life must be good. We seldom find a phone with poor battery life but we always perform battery tests.

Presently, the number of mobile users has increased unlike before. It’s because of the growing technology and the lack of time tech-savvies are more into checking the apps on their smartphones more than the desktop websites on their PCs or laptops. Besides Android, Windows, BB etc, iOS has also made a cult of its own. The Apple product users have to depend on the iPhone apps that are built for the iOS exclusively.
Today, iPhone is the hottest and the most expensive mobile handsets for its sophisticated technology and impressive designs. The iOS apps have opened a new horizon in the eCommerce business. Gamers are also happy to get the support on their iPhone. The apps are now lucrative tools for launching new products, games and movies in the market going gaga over the fresh apps.
Here, a few steps are discussed that are usually followed by the people on the verge of developing iOS apps-
A Great Idea
The process of iOS/iPhone App development is complex, time-consuming, and expensive. Hence, if you are intending to develop such an app for the iPhone or Mac users, you need to have a mind blowing idea first. The app should be attractive, user-friendly, spiced up with all the ingredients to compete with the existing competitors in the market right now. It should be simple yet amazing and the flow of the pages should be smooth so that the users enjoy the 100% UI.
The first impression is the last impression! In the case of an iPhone app, there is no one ready to compromise. You have to strategize the designing and the content in such as way that the users don’t find a loophole to leave to lose interest in a few hours and delete it. Hence, you have to apply the master techniques and designers for the designing part and you need superb developers that can be trusted to do their job flawlessly.
Get the best team!
If you are not going to DIY the iOS/iPhone app development, then you need a master designer and a developer for accomplishing your idea of developing the app for the iPhone users. If it’s for a game or any eCommerce business- let the designer and the developer have a clear idea about the plan. Share each and every feature you want the app to be made. Transparency is required for the perfect execution of the plan flawlessly.
Make sure that if you are targeting 100% UI and UX then you need killer designs. Hence, look for an extremely talented and experienced designer that can also add more ideas in your idea so that together the app can be a huge success.
Get a developer available 24/7. Web developers have a 24/7 job and for the apps, you never know when the users face any glitch! Rather receiving negative comments, it’s suggested to keep an eye on the app so that you may not lose traffic and get more conversions.
These are some of the most effective steps of an iOS/iPhone app development process.

7 Ways You Can Accidentally Ruin Your SmartPhone
Anyone who owns electronic gadgets will tell you that accidents can happen very easily. A SmartPhone owner will have the same sentiments. If you want to take good care of your unit, then there are certain things and situations that you need to be cautious of:
Some of the ways a SmartPhone can get scratches are by dropping it or leaving it in your bag with other objects such as keys. Although scratches may not always affect how your phone operates, it definitely ruins its exterior and screen. You can avoid scratches by getting a case and screen protector for your phone.
2. Water damage
Many people have accidentally ruined their SmartPhones because of water damage. They may have spilled a glass of water on it or gotten it wet in the rain. To avoid this, you simply need to be extra careful. Never leave your SmartPhone on a table where there are liquids. You may also want to purchase a waterproof phone case or pouch for your phone in case it rains or you’re going on a boat ride.
When your SmartPhone falls to the ground, it could possibly break. Many people have ruined their phones by leaving it in their laps when driving and forgetting about it when getting out of the car. You can purchase a lanyard for your phone so that it never drops because it is safely hanging from your neck.
4. Short battery life
Many owners of SmartPhones overcharge their batteries. In order to avoid a short battery life, never leave your phone charging overnight. Make sure to unplug the unit once it is fully charged. Also, try to maximize the battery life by charging your SmartPhone only when the battery is completely dead.
Many SmartPhones are ruined because of viruses. One way to avoid viruses is by turning off the Bluetooth on your unit. Many owners aren’t careful when accepting files sent over Bluetooth and simply accept whatever is sent their way. Make sure to only accept files from people you know.
6. Heat Exposure
Heat exposure is one way to ruin the battery or receiver of your SmartPhone. Never leave it fully exposed to the sun, such as in your car seat on a really hot day or even on your beach towel as you go for a swim in the ocean. Always keep your phone shielded from the heat-such as in your bag or in your pocket.
When you’re at the beach, the last thing on your mind is probably sand getting into your SmartPhone. Unfortunately, sand can get in your phone and ruin it in the process. Be cautious of sand and salt water the next time you go to the beach, because these two things can corrode the insides of your SmartPhone.
