You keep playing, and then it hits you. You go to do something – access a certain feature, for example and you’re greeted with something like this: “Accessing this feature costs 5 gold/keys/gems. Buy now?” [Read more...]

Apple is unlike any other smartphone manufacturer. Companies like Samsung, HTC and Blackberry are constantly revamping the style of their phones, and sometimes even completely changing the operating system running on the device. Apple has yet to do this. Since the release of the original iPhone back in June 2007, not much has really changed – the look of the phone externally is similar, and the operating system looks almost exactly the same.

If you’re below the age of 30, you’ve grown up around the time technology was evolving. Just 10 years ago, we didn’t have touch screen phones, or HD televisions, or virtual assistants. Heck, we barely had Bluetooth. But today’s world is completely different than it was 10 years ago. All sorts of new technology is coming out, and while the majority of people who have grown up with it know all about it, a lot of older folk have been left bewildered. They aren’t used to the kinds of stuff the younger generations of today are. So what should you get your older friends if they aren’t technologically smart? The iPhone is the best phone for senior citizens, and here’s why.
When Apple released the iPad, it was an extreme success. Apple had sold over 19 million iPads before they even released the second generation of them.

More tablets are being made at a faster rate than they previously have been, and it’s only going to increase as time goes by.
One of Apple’s best selling points is the fact that the iOS App Store has over 800,000 applications available for download at any time, around 30% of those being free. So essentially, when you purchase an iOS Device, you have a limitless amount of free media, applications, and games available for download. But how would Apple be different today if they did not allow free applications on their App Store?
