Small Takes – Apple 9.9 Event

9 Sep

Bigger phone size is very welcome. Still a pity that the small size no longer here. There’s a real market for small flagship device.

iPhone 6 Plus’s real purpose is probably to give a better option to 9.7” iPad users.

Brilliant on Apple’s part to have extra button’s on the bigger iPhone’s keyboard.

Apple Watch’s hardware looks gorgeous. I am only liking the steel band though.

The default watch face on Apple Watch is also very pretty, but the rest of the UI looks very non-pretty in a original iOS look way.

Loved bringing back the “One more thing…" in a appropriate manner.

Surface RT vs. New iPad: A Comparison

17 Oct

And so it has finally surfaced(pun intended), and the tech world is going into their analysis mode to determine which is better and why and which deserves our hard earned penny. So I am going to jump onto the bandwagon and offer my 2 cents. Rather than simply posting a chart and compare few bullet points, I am going to talk about what’s behind those bullet points. Bullet points are easier to look at, but there are always more to those points that everyone should take into consideration before taking out the wallet. What does higher/lower resolution means? What are the benefits of having a keyboard? What about the apps? How does having a USB port benefit me? Let’s take a look.

First thing first and let’s get this over with, that is resolution. I must say I am kind of disappointed about the resolution on RT. The resolution of 1366*768 is kind of disappointing to have, it should have been 1080p, not less but not more either. But I shall thoroughly disagree with iPad fans here and say more resolution is not necessarily better. Yes higher resolution and in turn higher pixel density is great to look at, but it does inarguably come with a few caveats, weight(if not battery life), heat, performance. iPad 3 despite having a stronger SoC inside compared to iPad 2, had visibly worse gaming graphics as this article finds.
