4 Pieces of Technology Your Business Needs

If you are an entrepreneur who has just opened up a new company, you might have already determined that it isn’t easy to run a business without technology. We all know that technology serves a variety of benefits for businesses, from providing research tools to simply printing out our critical work documents. When we think of technology at work, we typically think about the usual, common items such as computers with internet service, keyboards, and projectors. However, what if there were other technological advancements which could provide you with a plethora of advantages? For instance, did you ever consider how beneficial an envelope printer could be? Here is a list of incredible forms of technology which can be useful for either the office or outside of work, which you might have not previously considered.
1. A Tablet
A tablet works almost like a mini computer, with all of the touchscreen features of a smartphone. With a tablet, you can access important apps, such as Dropbox, Kingsoft Office, TouchDown, and much more. These devices are light enough to carry with you to your meetings or even out to lunch. A tablet allows you to access your email as well, helping you to stay updated with important work information. This is a great way to stay in touch with your work outside of the office, since it can be transported nearly anywhere.
2. Envelope Printers
If you are searching for a way to mass-produce your mail, why not consider an envelope printer? Envelope printing is the ultimate way to meet the demands of high volume mailers. Envelope printing increases the efficiency of all of your direct mail campaigns by allowing you to place unique and even personalized messages on your envelopes that will encourage customers to take action. This is an excellent marketing strategy which will simultaneously boost your company’s productivity.
3. Scanners
A scanner is a very important part of your business. In the event that you need to digitalize a certain document, a scanner can make the process significantly easier. Once an image is scanned on the computer, it can be copied and edited accordingly. Additionally, it will remain stored on your work computer instantly, allowing you to always have that particular document. Scanning frees you from having file cabinets full of paper and allows you to have digital access to the documents needed. This preserves space and provides a greener alternative to filing.
4. Ergonomic Keyboards
Although these aren’t necessarily considered as technological as a tablet, ergonomic keyboards serve extremely helpful purposes for your business. For starters, an ergonomic keyboard can ensure the comfort of your employees through the ergonomic properties of the keyboard tray. It is a good way to avoid carpal tunnel or RSI (repetitive strain injury). Sometimes technology can serve our physical needs as well.
Whether you have just started out or you have been in business for years, these four ideas are perfect in case you are looking to spoil yourself or your employees. These pieces of technology serve a bountiful amount of purposes and will be sure to assist your company in the long run.

All new Apple Mac Pro

Mac Pro

Yup the long awaited time has come folks!!! The All new Apple Mac pro has hit the market with a big bang. Dec 19, quite a day for the Apple Company. Apple Company had made a revolution by creating a footprint. With just $3000 dollars to spare you could even own this baby yours.

Well what is it? 

Now there arouse a question in all your minds what is it? Seems so shiny and attractive. All could see is that it’s pretty. Some may even think what’s there in this cylinder and why should i buy the shiny, pretty cylinder for $3000?

Apple’s MacPro is a computer’s CPU can you believe it? Quite the shape it has isn’t it. It is the most powerful computer released till now, with extraordinary features and outstanding performances. Don’t be stunned till you hear out its features.

Mac Pro-1


Now let us go into the details. Now basically what does a CPU have? Probably a great processors, storage, Graphics and expansion etc. So what did the company do? Did they make new components to make the CPU? No. Your guess is wrong. They just thought of a way to make these components to arrange and work in a different fashion rather than an old boring way. Well what did they do you ask. Here let me show you.
Outstanding Features:

OS- Mac OS (Mavericks[10.9] 


First things first, the architecture is stunning with a sleek black (also available in metallic silver) cylinder and a hole at the top to drive out the heat from the inner parts. 9.9 inches tall and has a diameter of about 6.6 inches. Withe help of Thunderbolt 2 ports the size is also considerably reduced and the connections for USB 3.0 are present at the back.

To connect the peripherals with your MacPro rotating it would be just fine rather than pulling it and getting hit at the table while making a connection.

  • Unified thermal core:
All our computers consist of several heat sinks to cool off different processors. Apple Company thought why all the components can’t be cooled with a single heat sink leading to the production of a single unified thermal core. In that case if 1 processor doesn’t work, the heat transfer is shared among all other process.

  • Single Breakthrough Fan:
We all have processors fans in the same size of the processors inside our PC’s and we all come across a problem of this fan not working in most of the cases. This consists of a single large fan with back curved impeller blades with few rpm/minute.

Possible I/O connections: 

The I/O connections that can be made through the computer is Thunderbolt 2, 2 Gigabit ethernet (allows you to connect with multiple users), USB 3, HDMI 1.4 (provides with the latest TV, projectors, displays[supports upto 4K displays])


Processor is New generation Intel Xeon E5(processing speed of 3.7 GHz) with a processing speed of max. 12 core (Quad core) process on a single die. Beyond our imagination right? And 30MBL3 cache memory, 256 bit wide floating point instructions might also add a feather on its cap.


RAM-12GB and SSD hard disk-256GB. 

With a 4 DDR3 memory controller and the type of memory used is ECC (Error Correcting Code- tests the accuracy of data when it while it runs in the memory system) memory and also SATA storage interface. The storage also consists of the next generation flash storage where it is 2.4 times faster than the last released SATA cable


Both Wi-Fi and Ethernet connections are available. Wi-Fi specifications (802.11a,ac,b,g,n). Also Wi-Fi encryption is made by WEP, WPA, and WPA2. 2 Ethernet ports available (10/100/1000GB)


The current generation computers have graphic cards in MB size alone. Whereas here we’ve upto 2-6GB VRAM with 2408 stream processors. So imagine the quality of video by yourself and this is suitable for the heavy gaming champions out there.


The technology might be well equipped with a different perspective to enter into the market, but it takes some time to settle down. Coz we’re not sure about this technology anyway. We’ve always worked out our problems in the same usual and boring way and this venture of Apple firm is appreciable but it takes some time to adapt to the technology.

Moreover new technology needs new members to guide them. So whenever there’s a problem in it (after all it’s a machine right? How much can it handle?) we need highly educated technicians who thoroughly knows each nook and corner of it.


You know what the best part is too. Energy is saved pretty much. MacPro goes green. Just a corner at your table would be just fine. It’s the dream of every person to own such a computer.
Well then off you go. Place your orders as soon as possible. The firm has started to take orders.

The world's toughest Cases

Anybody who uses firearms in their job performance, or is a serious, responsible gun collector, knows the importance of gun safety. They also recognize the necessity for gun protection, maintaining the integrity of their firearms in a safe, dust-free gun case. There is no wiggle room when it comes to firearms safety; guns must be kept away from children and those who might misuse firearms. It is to that end that contemporary gun cases are crafted with specific features including locks and a durable outer construction with high-tech materials.

Naturally, the protection of human life is the primary concern, but firearm protection is crucial to keeping the gun in perfect working order. If the gun's integrity is compromised, the firearm is on its way to being totally useless, a sad loss to the collector or user. Without exception, sporting weapons as well as working weapons require a reliable, padded gun case, one that won't deteriorate, one that will keep the gun in prime condition.
Quality gun case manufacturers like Casesbypelican.com, for example, provide top-notch gun cases that are designed to protect guns for years. Pelican actually provides a "forever" guarantee. Such a powerful guarantee is exemplary and not necessarily the industry standard.

If you use or collect firearms, and do not already have a quality, lockable, rugged gun case, do not hesitate to get that taken care of immediately. Choose a high caliber gun case website and order now to avoid unfortunate accidents or regrettable incidents. Keep you family, friends, neighbors and guns safe.

Review of iPhone 5s

Apple iPhone has been released by the Apple Corporation recently and release of iPhone 5s has impressed many people who were apple fans. Apple iPhone 5S has entirely a new model after the release of iPhone 5; the outer look of the Apple iPhone 5S is very fantastic when compared to the other models.


Apple iPhone 5S has a stunning design and it will perfectly hold in your hand. Apple iPhone 5S comes with aluminium and glass outer case. Apple iPhone 5S has new combination of colors which includes champagne and space grey color. Apple iPhone 5S comes with low weight and it look very less in weight.

iPhone 5s
Processor and Performance: 

Apple iPhone 5S has Apple’s A7 processor which is a 64 bit ARM processor. Apple iPhone 5S processor has two cores which are running at the speed of 1.29GHz.

Apple iPhone 5S finger print scanner works effectively in many regions and it works pretty smarter. It will unlock your device if your thumb impression is found and then only you can able to buy the apps from the App store as well as the iTunes.

Dumb and Fun Phone Apps

At its most basic, a mobile phone should be an effective tool for communication. However the brilliance that is a “smart” phone takes fun and function to a whole new level. Programmers continually devise both handy and hilarious apps to install, and though some are more sensible than others it certainly doesn't hurt to add programmes that exist solely to provide a little levity, right? And who knows? Maybe some of the following oddball selections can be of true benefit some day.
The Star Wars Lightsaber app is available for both Android and iOS platforms. In addition to movement activation it has perfect sound effects and flashing lights suitable for both Jedis and Troopers. At first glance this app may seem like frivolous good fun but there's also the benefit of working out issues with another via a make believe saber fight than letting aggravations fester. Also there's the geek cred of just having the app to have it.
The Whipcrack app is one users love having but hate others having. Again, motion activated and with great sound effects—this one is particularly handy when telling a spouse what to do. Granted it may not be received with the same joy it was delivered, so use at your own risk. This is also an app that kids never tire of so its installation may be cause for password protecting one's mobile to avoid hearing it 30 whips a go.
Shazam is a brilliant app that can listen to whatever music's playing and identify it. Think it's an obscure little ditty just because it's unrecognisable? Well not to Shazam! With a surprisingly vast library, this app will also provide cover art, YouTube links, etc. if available. Plus one of the best benefits is that this app provides a similar service to the iTunes song identifying app but with less of a proprietary nature as Apple products. Available for both Android and iOS platforms.
An ability to pop bubble wrap on one's mobile may seem like a total waste. However, those with an obsession with the stuff know this app could save both money and potential embarrassment. It's astounding how many stores keep bubble wrap out and within reach of just anyone. Now mobile users can get a virtual fix that includes a satisfying popping sound, a visual pop to coincide and even a phone vibration. Not really as good as the real thing but what is?
The Magic 8 Ball is an oldie but still a goodie. The best versions stick as closely as possible to the original toy, yet some programmers inadvisedly removed the satisfying shake function that most resembled the kitschy fortune teller. Though answers to life's tough questions are limited at best with this toy, it's kind of Zen zoning out whilst seeking answers.
Speaking of Zen—there are various versions of Zen garden apps available that warrant checking out. The best apps offer a choice between using rake or finger for drawing in the sand, as well as a variety of stones to place just so. Look for one with tranquil music or turn down the sound if you like everything but the music. Think there's no benefit? Wait for hours in a doctor's office and say that again.
One app that never seems to lose its charm is Songify or some variation, thereof. Combining speech recognition and auto tune, a brief conversation can be recorded and then automatically mixed into a dance song. It's ingenious, incredibly useless and loads of fun. Again, this is one kids never tire of but could possibly drive adults to drink so know that introducing this app to youngsters could prove harmful to one's sanity.
Of course there are countless mobile apps for both Android and iOS that serve actual purposes other than time killing and silly entertainment. Yet the fact that technology can become so advanced without causing humor to mature is somehow comforting. Sure the medium has changed but the jokes stay the same. Thanks to a world of silly apps adults are allowed to be only as grown up as they choose to be.

OS X Mavericks is specially made for desktop, it is most advanced operating system for desktop it allows mac user to experience the latest features, latest advanced technology and security. Mavericks make the mac experience better (by adding more apps to operating system) at less power consumption.

Apple, Less than one week to delivers OS X 10.9.1 to consumer apple launched its first beta version next OS X 10.9.2 on 18th December 2013 and it was maintenance update to developers. Mac OS X 10.9.2 have feature FaceTime audio, which is voice over internet protocol, basically this feature is made for iPhone with iOS 7, this feature allows the apple users to communicate (voice chat) between the any apple devices namely laptop and iPhones.

Focused areas of Mavericks OS X 10.9.2 are

• Mail
• Message,
• Virtual private network (VPN),
 • Voiceover and
• Graphics driver.


FaceTime allows user to make a voice call with other FaceTime user without any streaming trouble and turning of video feed. But Mavericks only used to access the FaceTime app, which contain both audio and video.

There is a similar app like FaceTime which is best for the users having interest in voice communication called Skype, it is a third party application allows both the video chat and voice chat.

FaceTime is made for iOS7 to make a voice call on mobile device and now FaceTime audio is comes with update of OS X 10.9.2 which allows to make a call on desktop.

FaceTime is also uses high-quality Voice over internet protocol (VoIP), for high quality audio (voice) it uses the AAC-ELD codec. AAC-ELD is designed to provide high clarity audio like CD for voice calls, it delivers high audio quality at a low coding.

Apple launched its beta version OS X 10.9.2 so early because it has some issues to rectified, the issues was Mavericks had a problem on viewing mail, so that only major part of update of OS X 10.9.1 mainly concentrate to fix that issues. But till now user had same issue with Gmail and smart Mailboxes.

Battery life of an iPhone has really been an issue, and doesn’t know how far iPhone developers taken into to account, Apple will surely make a note of this problem and try to solve this issue let’s make yourself to protect the battery life.

Some idea’s to improvise the battery life on your own way, here are some technological tips to watch out for. Following ways are not only for iPhone rather to iPad also.

People will surely like to attain more attention towards the home screen. Perceptive to this scenario iPhone has enabled flashy looking 3D effect on home screen. The icon’s present in home screen tend to float behind as you move around the screen. This looks really attractive but surely going to use some resource and needs to be noticed.

Radios drains your battery than any other app prevailing default in iPhone. So whenever you move away from Radio just make a simple note to turn off.

Drones aren't the only way your package will be delivered in future

Amazon caused a stir earlier this month when they announced they were working on a drone that could deliver parcels directly to your door within half an hour of your order being placed. Amazon CEO and founder Jeff Bezos showed Charlie Rose from American TV news show 60 Minutes one of the drones being put to the test. Nicknamed the "Octocopter", the drones will deliver books and other small, light parcels to customers who opt for the "Prime Air" service - predicted to launch as soon as 2017.
While Amazon caught the headlines for their drone project, a revolution has been quietly going on in delivery technology over the past few years which means that we're all able to experience added convenience and speed Amazon claim their drones will deliver without the risk of being hit by an oversized toy helicopter. These innovations might seem rather mundane in comparison, but they will undoubtedly lead to more frustration free deliveries and customer satisfaction in the near term.
Make no mistake: delivery as we traditionally know it is broken. Thankfully experts and innovators from across the industry are working on fixing it, and they're closer to realising their goals than Amazon is to launching their drones. Customers report two major frustrations with deliver today: it doesn't arrive quickly enough, and when it does arrive they're not in to receive it.
While some delivery companies appear to be happy to continue with the current broken model, others have realised that future business from online retailers will require better customer satisfaction. These smart delivery companies have already fitted their fleets with a technology called telematics. Telematics has been around in different forms for several decades now, but is currently mainly used by fleets to track vehicle and driver performance. Shippers using this tech have been able to drastically reduce their fuel bills by intelligently routing deliveries based on factors such as traffic conditions, vehicle whereabouts and time left in the drivers working day. These innovations have already reduced the cost of home delivery, allowing more online stores to offer customers free delivery options.
But telematics is beginning to offer more customer convenience too. By integrating fleet tracking and package tracking, the best fleet telematics systems are now able to give customers more precise delivery times. No more worrying about popping out to the shops on the day you're parcel is due to arrive, as you'll get a text an hour before delivery informing you of precisely when your order will arrive.
While evening and weekend deliveries are also becoming a common option - typically for an extra fee - another cheaper option for those who work long hours is already taking off. Delivery lockers, placed in venues such as local shops, parking lots and even subway stations are becoming a common sight in cities across the world. Boris Johnson, the Mayor of London, recently announced he was closing London Underground ticket booths in order to make space for delivery lockers like these where you can even get fresh groceries delivered. While Amazon is a big player in this market, there's many startups trying to get a piece of the pie.

OS X 10.9.1 is available now!

OS X 10.9.1
After several weeks of beta reserved for developers, Apple has released the final version tonight OS X 10.9.1 If you have already installed Mavericks on your Mac, you can update to the new version via the Mac App Store. As always, the manufacturer recommends the update to all users. It is supposed to fix bugs first of the new system and especially the disastrous management of Gmail accounts.

Based on the feedback received during the period, all the problems are not yet solved, and is still underway. Further bug fixing may happen after seen whether this new version fixes the remaining bugs or not. This version has build number 13B42. The latest beta availability of developers had to number 13B40. Other corrections listed by Apple Mail still concern, its smart mailboxes and contact groups.

VoiceOver function that sets all the text on the screen for visually impaired users sometimes had trouble with Emil. Another point discussed, shared Safari links were not always updated as they should. Note that Apple also offers an update of Safari (6.1.1) for owners of Mountain Lion. On the other hand, this version includes specific improvements for the last MacBook Pro Retina 2013.

The slowdowns especially with the video display on the 13“may be resolved with this update. Apple said nothing about it, but we imagine that one of the novelties of this version also is support for new Mac Pro, whose marketing is imminent, finally, if the Apple brand continues to meet its promise to leave in December. After OS X and Mac Pro, you should have the right in the wake of updates to Apple's professional software, including Final Cut Pro X and Aperture.

To return to the Mavericks, the first update "minor" is long overdue. 10.9.1 was released 55 days after the release of Mavericks. Previously, usually Apple always offers minor update to its operating system in the months following its release.

 From the list of given browser it takes the lead to satisfy the user with more options. It is innovative, powerful and free. This browser is little faster than Safari can work with, provideddownloading management and crash recovery in case of failure. One of the best in the list, but lack of iPad support and doesn’t import bookmarks form Safari.

3. Opera Mini Browser:
 If you are searching a perfect alternative for Safari then I would recommend you to go with Opera Mini, faster than the build in browser of iPhone and difference is surely noted while surfing heavy graphics websites. Opera is faster due to compressed version of web pages that is routed to its servers.

4. Atomic:
Atomic unlike other browser can be availed at $.99 and not a full replacement of Safari. This full version is better than Dolphin, Atomic allows you to import book marks form Safari. Varity of options and setting are available when you opt for web development

5. Mercury:
 Clearing bugs this provides a solid browser with full screen, tabbed browsing, bookmarks importing and gestures. Download manager is buggy and if it’s cleared then it will be top contender.

6. Photon:
 Photon deals best with flash. It takes remote desktops Flash and map to your iPhone. Sometimes this cause slow connection, or cause user-interface creepiness, or it works well. Desktop version is not that good at considering iPhone is worthy. This version is Available at $3.99 in Android Market.

7. Switch:
Switch is aiPad specific browser, that includes multiple account and can have a privacy to the user accounts, it supports Airplay and HTML 5 video. Browsers much faster than Safari while loading.

8. Webout:
Webout worthy if you tend to have Apple TV. It supports both audio and video for second generation Apple TV and you can notice video loading a much faster rate.

9. Cloud Browser:
 Many iOS browser not supports Flash or Java. To overcome n this Cloud Browser can be installed, it runs full version in Firefox as server and streams this to iOS device. Problem with this is that audio and video get out of sync and jerky during play.

10. Knowtilus Pro:

This provides more feature and different from other app, while focusing on this basic are being missed and needed to redefine. This app is available at $5.99. Feature offered by this is RSS reader, a barcode scanner, text-to-speech capabilities and efficient than other browsers.

Life on a Smartphone

First off, the existence of tiny little computers that are also phones is an amazing thing. That just needs to be said from the start. It is an absolutely amazing time in technology—an amazing time to be alive. A world of information waits patiently in a pocket, until some pub debate spurs a trivia challenge; got a wager on the answer? Bring out the mobile. Not having to wait to get home to check emails has helped people land jobs and quick texts have made it possible for milk and nappies to come home without a second trip. Not to mention sharing video, promoting cool new businesses, and GPS conveniences. Smartphone technology is awesome.
But even as wonderful as it all is there are some new behaviours that have developed as a result of the widespread adoption of mobile usage, and not all of them are pretty.
As strange as this may sound, it's true. Though technologically more easily connected to friends around the globe, it is all too easy to get sucked into staring at a phone and ignoring the people you're sitting with. Look around and notice how many people are sitting together but staring at individual phones and only halfheartedly speaking to one another. At what point did common courtesy and the communion of eating together get ditched over the allure of the status update of someone you've never actually met in person? Being overly attached to a mobile also means the opportunity for chance meetings or impromptu conversations with strangers are also greatly diminished. Less connection in a far more connected world.
Photo Frenzy
Phone cameras are absolutely brilliant inventions, there's no denying that. But it's become so commonplace to spend more time documenting life than actually living it. It's terrific that everyone's now a budding artist or documentarían but how about putting down the mobile and actually doing stuff for the sheer joy of doing it instead of stopping every two seconds to snap a pic? Plus when caught up in the moment there's a real habit of instantly sharing something that not all might want shared. Everyone has different privacy boundaries that are consistently trod on by well-meaning, yet overly enthusiastic photographers. And again, there's the disconnect of watching an event instead of actively participating in it.
Always On
Sure, parents want to be able to hear from the sitter and there are doctors and nurses on call. And then there's the rest of the world. If the mobile is constantly on and in hand it's something you might want to look at, particularly if you feel really stressed out. Being constantly bombarded by news and other peoples' status updates fills one's life with a lot of unnecessary noise. If having trouble sorting through anything in your own personal life first try to filter out some of the updates on everyone else's. Even if it's just a matter of taking your tea without technology, turn the phone off and hear yourself think.
Safety Last
In addition to lapses in courtesy, the incessant breaches in safety on mobiles is highly alarming. Many social media profiles are left wide open to public viewing, where some may post an image of their street address and then mention going on holiday. Seriously? Too, checking in to a location is just asking for a stalker to stop by. At no time should anyone post where they are and that they are alone. So why has this become such common practice, because everyone's doing it? Homes have gotten burglarized after posting images of expensive items and then giving an open announcement on when the home will be unattended. Remember when setting privacy settings on all social media that your mobile settings need to be checked, too. And try to be wise about telegraphing your movements on any given day.
Mobiles are marvelous. They aren't the problem. Yet technological advancements should never take the place of common courtesy, investment in life, or simple street smarts. There are simple ways to enjoy the benefits of mobiles but to also be sensible, empathetic and engaged. And until there's an app reminding of these things, it's still up to the humans to make it so.
