The Nokia Lumia 925 : Camera Review




The new Nokia's flagship smartphone Lumia 925 allows you to take sharp and clear photos even in low light. It can capture 10 frames in a shot and create dramatic action shots.

The phone is amazing, but it is the innovative and powerful camera functions that are the jewel in the smartphone's crown.

The sleek aluminum body and attention grabbing 4.5 inch HD+ screen makes it attractive and classy.


The varied photo and video functions make it a great choice for those who want a little more out of their phone snaps.


Low light shots never looked this good in a phone


The Lumia  925 uses unparalleled PureView Technology, Carl Zeiss optics, a 6-physical lenses and a 8.7 megapixel sensor.

Having a 6-part lens along with Optical Image Stabilization gives the camera a slightly longer exposure time for low light shots reducing image noise drastically.

Coupled with it is the software, tweaked specifically to deal with low light noise reduction.

The result is that you get some amazing shots even in the dark.

All action in a single snap



Nokia's Smart Camera Technology lets you take 10 snaps at once and make a number of innovative/creative  things with the help of the tons of built-in apps.

You can meld 10 snaps taken in quick succession with the help of Action Shot to give a creative impression of movement and also giving your albums a true creative flair.

Controlling the Shot


Say, no to random people walking through your scene or a bird flying over ruining your shot.

Thanks, to the Remove Moving Object feature lets you erase all unwanted details to get your picture looking just the way you want it.

Make everybody smile


Capture everyone at their best with the Smart Camera Change Faces feature. 

Combine your favorite expressions from a series of shots into a single perfect group photo.

 Allowing you to take 10 shots at once (in quick succession) means the freedom to swap over various elements from one to another photo. 

This means that even if a person blinks in a group shot, you can amend it quickly with just a few taps.



CONCLUSION : It is a great smartphone with an amazing camera and display. It is worth the money and great for entertainment (videos and pics) and social networking.

Get the new Apple iOS 7 in just 5 easy steps

Apple’s interface has looked more or less the same since the first iOS was released back in 2007. In its evolution we have seen the face change only in terms of hardware and the iOS started looking stale.And  finally we get to see something new. Apple has kept the basic quintessential structure of iOS but it has redesigned its icons with a flatter, more stylized look. It has become brighter,efficient and more user-friendly  while cutting out the gradients that were eminent in its previous versions. When scrolling through things like the Home screen or Messages app you’ll see an amazing subtle parallax effect.
In the new iOS 7, fonts have been slimmed down, there’s a new version of the classic slide-to-unlock function, and a new translucent control panel that slides up from the bottom for quick access to frequently used settings. Touch gestures have also been expanded allowing you to swipe and pinch. There's also a tilt feature which changes the interface. And you can put as much as a cent apps and files in the newly designed folders previously which had a capacity for only 12 to 16 apps.And a plenty of other cool new stuff.

The iOS 7 comes this fall and that would be damn too late for us Apple lovers to get hands on. Well, here's your treat on how to install the new iOS 7 without a Deveoper's account or a UDID registration in just 5 easy steps.


Step 1:You need to download the latest official iOS for your device that will update to the latest version. This will be iOS 6.1.4 for iPhone 5 and iOS 6.1.3 for all other supported devices. I am using an iPhone 4S so it is iOS 6.1.3 for me. Download Link : http://www.felixbruns.de/iPod/firmware/
(Download Link for iPhone 5 GSM AT&T 6.1.4: http://tinyurl.com/iPhone5GSMAT-T )




 Step 2 :Download iOS 7 for your device: http://imzdl.com/ios.php

 Step 3 : Ensure that your device is connected via USB and open up iTunes on restore; hit the shift and left mouse click buttons down together (Mac users, press Options key and left mouse click buttons together) this will allow you to manually search for the iOS you have downloaded for iPhone 5 you would select iOS 6.1.4 for all other devices you would select iOS 6.1.3



Step4: Once the device has restored make sure to set this device as new  and that you should get to the home screen.


Step 5 : Now on the Check for updates button hit shift and left mouse click down together; this time you need to select iOS 7 for your device. Now after the device finishes updating your iOS 7 gets activated.


NOTE: Before you get started make a backup definitely, the device will work as normal and you will be able to sync from the saved backup, install apps, make calls and messages etc.I advice you guys to have an account on iCloud which would make things pretty simple and you don't need to worry about a backup then.


Congrats and now you are ready to use the most advanced iOS ever.
Cheers!

PrizeRebel : Website Review - Online Money




Most of you must be familiar with PrizeRebel, the world's most famous complete-survey-for-money website. Indeed, if you don't mind completing surveys by entering you email (make a new one) on websites this is perhaps the best source of online income for you. You get paid in the form of points (which you redeem for money). The website is free for life too and there are at present >4.7 Million users.

Not only can you redeem your points for money, you can get other things too. Infact most people visit PR not for the money but for the other things they have. The other things include Games (all consoles) , Gaming Consoles (yes a PS3 for 200 surveys), gift cards (including Amazon) , there are also gaming cards (like ultimate gaming card and World of Warcraft card) , guitars , clothes,shoes, headphones , Mobile Phones, iPad, iPods and pretty much everything the young person needs today.

How do you get your things after redeeming them? At your doorstep of course, PR ships all over the world and the delivery is free of charge. In case you want to take the cash instead of the "other things" they have PAYPAL for cashout and the payment is made within 2 days.

How does this work you ask? Here's a picture of their FAQ.


They even have a REFFERAL system so if you have enough reach you could get points by doing nothing at all.

If they have 4.7M users they surely cant be a scam, and unless it was Santa Claus in disguise, they didnt cheat me either.

Here is a video tutorial.

It gives you a massive 2TB of storage . Uniquely designed as a cloud which looks very cool and sober. Allows any Android or iOS device to connect with the cloud .

Unfortunately the company has not revealed neither a firm release date nor any further tech specs so we have yet to scrutinize any or more aspects of the device, but you can have a look at the hardware on the photos below.

Your Next Smartphone, Made Of Concrete







Have you ever thought about your smartphone made out of concrete , no isnt it ?. Well its no joke. Researchers around the world at a conjunction at US Department of Energy have found a method to turn masonry to metal.  It is a process of turning cement into a glass-metal fusion.
The material shows exceptionally positive behavior at conducting heat and electricity. The process discovered by the researchers can be used as a semiconductor inside electronics providing good connectivity, improved resistance to corrosion compared to  metals in use,low energy loss in magnetic fields, less brittleness than  glass and high fluidity making it easy to process and mold during construction.
The researchers working on the project used a phenomenon called electron trapping which is a condition occurring when free electrons and polycrystalline materials are trapped in cage like structures that form around them. The process for creating the material  involves suspending the material in the air using an aerodynamic levitator. The levitated hot liquid consists of a material called melted mayenite which is at a temperature of around 2000°C, is unable to form crystals allowing it to cool into a glassy state that traps the electrons required for electronic conduction. The mayenite is heated using a carbon dioxide laser beam.
So now it wont be just your houses made of concrete but your smartphones as well.

Studio Beats by DR.Dre



                                                               
The Original Beats That Took The World By Storm

Headphone are one of the main tools used to listen to the most important quality of the the music you are listening to.Beats help you to listen to the sound of the music exactly how they sounded when the artist recorded them.Normal headphones often fail to deliver the rich,full sound in today's digital audio tracks.Beats and Monster's have come together to give you this quality.The isolation technology by Monster's actively cuts external noise so all you hear is the music.
I have been using the headphones for like...the past 10-11 months and I know these headphones are expensive but they are worth each penny.The bass they provide is just too awesome.Before I bought them I naturally listened to many headphones,you know there is a market out there with all brands like bose,sennheiser,skullcandy etc.But when I listened to the studios I was like wow! at that time I did not even know what beats were.
The studio comes in many funky colours .

  Features:

  • Powered by a pair of AAA batteries.


  • Super soft and covered with ultra-soft breathable materials,  The  logo on the right side also acts as a mute button when you press it. No need to take them off to talk.


  • Take calls, skip songs and  adjust volume right from the cord of your Beats Studio headphones.  



The Studio Beats by Dr.Dre headset comes with a 4.26-foot long connector cable with a standard 3.5 mm connector. It also includes a Monster iSoniTalk cable, which allows you to connect simultaneously to the headphones, your cellphone  and the microphone in order to take and make phone calls. There are also two adapters: a two-pronged adapter and a ¼-inch adapter. Both adapters allow you to plug the headphones into a more powerful audio source such as a jack on an airplane. A carrying case and cleaning cloth are also included with the headphones.

     I give the headphones a 4.8/5
Well if you are planning to buy headphones I advise you to go for the studios.

Make Money Blogging - Chitika



Blogging in today's date is much more than a side income. People quit their jobs to turn to full time blogging. Today we review Chitika a service similar to (and better) than adsense. Adsense is known to randomly ban their users and take their life earnings away from them (yes no warning nothing) and nothing can be more frustating.
Adsense needs you to earn 100$ before they can payout. Hell they dont even have paypal. Chitika pays out every month if you earned at least 10$ that month via paypal. If you couldn't get to 10$ in a month dont worry it carries forward to the next.  A Win-Win.
Adsense allows only 3 ads per blog. Chitika allows infinite ads on infinite blogs/websites(even once you dont own). You can hence place your ads on a friends website and gain money.
Chitika even has a referral system so if people join chitika from your link both of you get a 15% bonus.
If you don't use paypal chitika pays out via check as well, at your doorstep.
I had a problem initially with their referral system so I mailed them and I got a reply within 12 hours something we cant expect from adsense.
If you care even my blog uses chitika.
If I couldn't convince you yet I probably never will.Let the money roll in!   - Sign Up from here to get a bonus along with me

Metal Gear Solid : Peace Walker (PSP) - Game Review

As the PSP reaches its near final stage, one can look back and say that this is one console which could not have been much better.If you still have yours lying around , here is a review on one of the best games. One for which its worth picking it back up again -



                                              Rating : 9.5/10  HIGHLY Recommended

Tactical espionage at its best. Finally a game where Stealth and Patience , give you a distinct advantage both in the long and short run. The game takes well over a 125 hours to complete and the story is amazing in its own way. This is a game which rewards its players for using a nice gameplan. We  of course play as SNAKE , and the main objective as we find out as the game proceeds is to stop an all out nuclear attack by War Machines called Metal Gears. The Co-Op version is even better than the singleplayer and almost all the singleplayer missions can be done as a team wia WLAN. Tranquiliser guns , smoke grenades , empty magazines are the main weapons you use to maintain your stealth.


You can sneak around in a special stealth suit , Jungle fatigues and even an all out battle suit.Each suit has its own advantage say more weapon carrying capacity or a more stealth index. You can dispose of enemies by either forcing them to sleep using tranquilisers or "stunning" them by using a stun rod or even choking them till they faint.Then of course is the option to go all GUN HO and do the job.


A major part of this game is fighting automated machines and not humans. And that is when the game gives you a chance to go all guns blazing with your RPG launchers and heavy Machine Gun.


There are near endless routes to take and an endless ways to do the job.Maybe you can just let the enemies patrol while you are silently (and slowly) making your way up towards the next checkpoint.


All in all, its the best game I have played on my PlayStation Portable. By quite a margin too.
