Best Nexus 5X cases you can buy right now

If you’re planning on getting the $379, LG-made Google Nexus 5X, you may want to allocate a further $15 to $40 for protection. We mean for a case. If you have any cash leftover after that, you might also want to consider adding Nexus Protect insurance, too. But we suspect most will be fine with just that aforementioned case.

Speaking of cases, there’s already a whole bunch of them available. Some of them pretty good, too. And for the sake of thoroughness, we also picked a few budget options, as well. Those are for them folks who just can’t rationalize spending hard-earned cash …

Buying the right memory card can be big ordeal for the non tech savvy among us. It is essential to know that a right memory card could make your phone or camera achieve the optimal performance, while a wrong one can hamper your experience by slowing it down or to even loss of data. Here is a simple basic guide to explain memory cards in general. Types Presently there are three types of major memory cards, they are : 1. Secured Digital Cards or SD Cards 2. Memory Sticks 3. CompactFlash Amongst them the SD cards are the most commonly used ones. They are widely used in phones, cameras, tablets, etc. Apart from the regular stamp sized SD cards used commonly in cameras, there are two variants called Mini SD and Micro SD cards, with later being the more popular. The Micro SD cards are the ones that is being used in smartphones and tablets. The Memory Sticks are designed by Sony to be used in some of their electronic products, while CompactFlash is used only in high resolution cameras.

Apple’s new product announcements: Rumor mill had it mostly right

Now that Apple has ended its eagerly awaited media event, it is time to look back and see how the rumor mill fared with the almost never-ending predictions for the event and the devices that were introduced. When it comes to the Apple iPhone 6s and Apple iPhone 6s Plus, the earliest rumors called for Force Touch to be included. It wasn’t until the last few days that the name 3D Touch and the three levels of tapping started to get bandied about. Regardless, that was still a good leak.

By the time May rolled around, KGI Securities Apple analyst Ming Chi-Kuo, already renowned for his amazingly …

4 reasons why you should not buy an iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus right now

Love them or hate them, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus are good smartphones. It’s not just our reviews (see here and here) that are giving the two iPhone models the credit they deserve, but most reviews out there agree that these may just be the best iPhones yet. This has a lot to do with the fact that they’re the first Apple smartphones to offer screens larger than 4 inches, but also with their features and build quality. Still, that doesn’t mean you should buy any of these two iPhones at the moment.

We actually have several good reasons for which you should not buy any iPhone right now. …

Microsoft’s Bing for Android offers its own contextual search feature right now

You might remember the Google Now on Tap feature that is coming with Android Marshmallow (still feels funny to type that). With this feature, you don’t have to leave the page you’re on to get more information from Google Now. For example, let’s say that you open an email on Inbox from your pal Joey who wants to take you to a restaurant you’ve never heard of. A long press on the home button will activate Google Now and you will see a card related to the eatery. The feature takes advantage of Google’s Knowledge Graph that helps connect people, places and things.

Bing’s Android app has just …

IT Business Products : Mobile CPU Roadmap: Picking the Right Intel Chip

Intel’s Core family of chips has the right stuff for laptop users, from the Core i3 all the way up to the deluxe Core i7. Choosing the right laptop means knowing your mobile CPUs. We’ll explore the key features of Intel’s mobile chips to help you find the best one for your needs.

Samsung recommends Windows® 8.

Processor speed has peaked in recent years, but core counts, power-saving features, and built-in functionality have continued to climb. And with the industry emphasizing power consumption and performance per watt, mobile CPUs are where much of the most significant innovation is happening these days. As these CPUs have proliferated, deciding which one is right for you can be confusing.

Case in point: Intel’s Core family of processors, with an alphabet soup of names like i3-350M, i3-330UM, i5-520UM, and i7-720QM. Confusing? Yes. But fortunately, there’s some logic behind the numbers. Let’s simplify matters by looking at what all Core Mobile Chips (CPUs) have in common.

Things All CPUs Have in Common

All of the chips mentioned above come with multiple Hyperthreaded CPU cores that can run at least four simultaneous threads. All of them carry Intel’s Smartcache technology that allocates cache to each CPU core as needed. And every Core chip carries Enhanced Speedstep technology that lets the CPU clock- or power-down areas of the chip to save juice.

Ultra-low Voltage

Some of Intel’s chips go even further in saving power, shipping with clock speeds of around 1.2GHz, compared to the 2GHz-plus you’ll find in normal laptop CPUs. These chips–identified by a U in their processor number–each draw less than 18 watts. You’ll find at least one of them in each of the Core mobile families, and if you’re more concerned with battery life than pure performance, one of these Ultra Low Power chips makes a great choice.

Turbo Boost

While CPU manufacturers have concentrated on multiple cores and parallel processing, software vendors have been slower to make the jump. So while your CPU may be capable of performing four to eight simultaneous tasks, the software you’re running may still be focused on just one.

Enter Intel’s Turbo Boost. This speed-boosting technology detects such situations and ratchets down the clock speed on the core that’s not doing anything, while bumping it up on the core that’s doing all the work. By doing that, Turbo Boosted chips can run a single-threaded load much faster while drawing the same amount of power (and putting out the same amount of heat).

Intel HD Graphics and Clear Video HD

Graphics processing can be one of the biggest power draws in a mobile system, especially in systems with dedicated graphics chips. Intel addressed this by moving HD graphics and video processing onto the CPU itself. While Intel’s integrated graphics aren’t recommended for serious gaming, they can accelerate streaming video and even handle decoding for Blu-ray and other HD video.

Trusted Execution

The ever-expanding danger of viruses and other malware requires hardware as well as software solutions. Intel’s Trusted Execution Technology allows applications to run in their own protected space where code from other software can’t touch them.

So which specific chip is right for you? Here’s a look at Intel’s Core mobile families and how they break down:

Core i3

Chips in Intel’s least expensive mobile processor family run at lower clock speeds, carry a smaller 3MB cache, and lack features such as Turbo Boost and Trusted Execution. Found in machines starting at around $600, Core i3 chips are a good choice if you’re more concerned with value than performance. Such machines also make good alternatives to netbooks. You’ll give up some portability, but gain a substantial chunk of performance, often for about the same price.

Core i5

Move up to Intel’s midrange mobile line, and you’ll gain faster clock speeds, Trusted Execution, and access to Turbo Boost. That makes Core i5 chips well-suited to mainstream business computing, and a good choice in machines costing around $1000 or so.

Core i7

Intel’s highest-end mobile chips incorporate all the features listed above, and boost cache sizes to 4MB. This line carries the fastest clock speeds among Intel’s mobile chips, and even allows you to trade a bit of clock speed for a pair of additional CPU cores. The i7-720QM and 820QM chips come with 6MB and 8MB of cache, respectively and each carry four Hyperthreaded cores. Those high-end chips are meant to be paired with dedicated graphics processing, so they omit Intel’s integrated graphics.

Core i7 machines start around $1200, and are capable of replacing most desktop machines. More expensive Core i7 laptops with dedicated graphics can tackle high-performance applications such as HD video editing or high-end image processing.

IT Business Products : Which is Right for You: Netbook or Notebook?

Netbooks are ultra-light, ultra-affordable, and easy to carry. Notebooks are full-sized, full-performance—and full-priced. Here’s what you’ll need to know to make the savviest and most cost-effective choice.

Samsung recommends Windows® 8.

Light vs. Ultralight

Both styles of PC are designed for easy travel, yet there’s a notable difference between the lighter-than-air netbooks and the more substantial notebooks.


Netbooks are all about computing on the move. Weighing less than three pounds, with screens that are 12 inches or smaller, a netbook can be tossed easily into a backpack or purse, or even carried comfortably in one hand.  If you lug your machine around all day long, that’s a major consideration.

Netbooks are leaner, and better suited to web-based usage, as they rarely have a CD or DVD drive. Their processors make them both energy-efficient and power-conscious, but that also means they’re designed to run fewer programs simultaneously.

If you have a web-driven lifestyle, such as blogging for work or pleasure, netbooks are a sleek way to go. Less hardware means less power drain, so netbooks have a longer battery life, lasting up to twelve hours without a charge. If an ultra-light machine can handle your needs, it’s definitely the better choice.


Notebooks are more substantial, with larger keyboards and screens, built-in DVD drives, and more computing strength. With a weight starting at about five pounds, notebooks are built with the heft to edit massive video files, create graphics, or manage large music libraries. Keep in mind that more tech muscle requires more human muscle (to carry) and electric muscle (to power).

The larger hard drive of a notebook delivers power and speed, capable of storing huge amounts of content while easily running multiple data-heavy programs. If your priority is strength over convenience, then notebooks are the best.

LCD vs. Battery Life

There’s a clear trade-off between the size of the LCD screen and the length of battery life. If a large screen is your main priority, notebooks are for you. Just remember that increased screen size has a corresponding battery drain, too.

Power vs. Convenience: The Choice Is Yours

Are you creating content or consuming it?  If you need a machine that offers “heavy lifting” in terms of performance, you need a notebook. If your lifestyle allows you to travel lightly, then netbooks are the best choice for you.

Many working adults have troubling falling asleep, while others find it difficult to stay asleep.  According to the CDC, 42 million American workers do not get the recommended seven to nine hours of shut-eye per night.

When you sleep well, you wake up feeling refreshed and alert. Sleep, or lack thereof, affects how you look, feel, and more importantly, the way you perform during the day. The amount of sleep you get each night can have a major impact on your overall quality of life.

During the four stages of sleep, your body recoups from the various daily activities by relaxing muscles, growing and repairing tissues, restoring energy, and releasing hormones, such as: Growth hormone, essential for growth and development, including muscle development. Sleep can help you thrive by contributing to a healthy immune system.

Here are a few foods that may get you closer to dream land.

  1. Fish- Salmon, halibut, and tuna can boast vitamin B6, which is needed to make melatonin, which helps control your sleep and wake cycles.
  2. Whole Grains- Bulgur, barley and other whole grains are rich in magnesium. Not consuming enough magnesium may make it difficult to stay asleep, according to the Journal of Orthomolecular Medicine.
  3. Bananas- Bananas, are rich in potassium and are also a good source of Vitamin B6.
  4. Walnuts- Walnuts are a good source of tryptophan, a sleep-enhancing amino acid that helps make serotonin and melatonin.
  5. Lettuce- Lettuce contains lactucarium, which has sedative properties and affects the brain similarly to opium. Therefore, having a salad for dinner could speed up your bedtime.
