As an app creator, you must now face some substantial hurdles before you can see your app sitting on the virtual shelves of Apple’s App Store, and being downloaded by potentially thousands of people worldwide.

There is no point in creating an app that you know is going to be disliked by Apple, as it will never get past the starting mark.

You’d be surprised to find out that there are actually a lot of people who would immediately blame their slow internet connection rather than checking out their PC first. Most of these people fall under the category of casual social gamers, this means these are people who likes to play social media games on their browsers such as the ever popular Farmville on Facebook. Usually they don’t really care about the technicalities of how a PC runs as long as they can play their games on their favorite browsers. They are quick to think that whenever their game is starting to slow down or has been very slow from the start that it’s their internet connection’s fault, although this may be the case for those who really have slow internet connections (dial-up, still? C’mon!) most often times it still boils down to your PC. In this article we try to find the 5 most common and the best solutions we can find to help speed up your PC.
There have been rumblings in the Internet space for a while that providers want to move to a usage based model as opposed to the current “all you can eat” approach. This is not a new idea, and in fact the entire industry started out charging by usage following in step with the first monster provider America Online. AOL charged customers by the minute for years until smaller startup companies such as FlashNet Communications and others began offering unlimited access and absorbing large chunks of market share because of it. Out of necessity to compete all ISP’s migrated to the new model.
Now it looks like cable companies are interested in returning to the old ways of doing business. Comcast is the first to step up and make a change in pricing, and considering they are the largest U.S. cable operator it’s a big deal. Comcast has announced that it will be dropping its current plan in two markets and replacing it with a 300 gigabyte base plan where users pay $10 for every 50 gigabytes they go over. This is a lot of data throughput, but a line is being drawn for customers. The impact to other businesses that rely on streaming such as Netflix or Amazon Instant could be enormous. Streaming a 2 hour movie can range between 3 and 6 gigabytes. This, plus normal Internet use and downloads, can eat up data rather quickly.
My BT Vision is taking a bit of a pounding at the moment I must admit. Since I realised I could watch new releases, or relatively new ones anyway, on my Vision Box Office I took advantage of the rubbish weather to catch up on Sherlock Holmes: Game of Shadows.
Now I’m a bit of a Sherlock fan actually. I’ve read all the books about a million times and seen plenty of episodes of every TV incarnation (Jeremy Brett is my favourite – watch out for reruns on ITV3 from time to time).
And unlike most Sherlockians, I have to confess to liking Game of Shadows just as much as the BBC’s recent slick modern Cumberbatch version.
Fellow BT Vision users seem to take exception to the special effects and technical whizz-bangery that characterises Guy Ritchie’s latest movie. The general complaint seems to be that a man capable of producing such godawful twaddle as Revolver shouldn’t be let anywhere near the hallowed text of Sherlock.
Being an owner of an Iphone 4s, I have always been curious of actually how does an Iphone cost. Having such a hefty price tag, it nice to know or at least have an idea of how the parts and labor actually adds up to the total actual cost of the Iphone. We cant really avoid the fact that the Iphone is a thing of beauty and it’s the overall design, packaging, and the iOS that makes up for the price and not just by judging the the cost of the individual parts.
Ever wondered what’s going on in A Day in the Internet? Ever thought of how much the amount of data is exchanged and transferred throughout the inter-webs?
