Besides the iPod, is there any other music player quite as well known, quite as popular? The answer is no. Many people wonder just what makes it so good, what makes it one of the most popular fashion. The truth is it’s a combination of things.
It seems weightless at times, and with its very slim design fits perfectly into my pocket or bag, rather than those chunky MP3 players which are very uncomfortable. The 20GB model is a moderate size with the amazing ability to hold 5000 songs it’s no wonder. That’s right, I can leave this thing on for days and it still won’t have repeated the same song. Not only that, just think about it, how many other 20GB portable hard drives slide into your pocket? None!
The look is another thing which draws me to the iPod. A clean white outer covering, a sleek LED display and a seemingly flawless click wheel which allows me to scan through thousands of songs in seconds, without even lifting a finger. If all the things I’ve discussed above isn’t enough, this thing can also do everything from setting reminders, waking me up to my favorite songs, leaving myself notes as reminders, playing games and closely monitoring my contacts. Ease of use is another great feature of this phenomenal unit. Adding hundreds of songs to the iPod is only a matter of a few minutes.
So in conclusion, if you like to carry one of the hottest pieces of technology in your pocket, the 20GB iPod is definitely for you.
It is a game like this that makes you question if there are too many teams invited to the postseason.
Carmelo Anthony scored all of his 26 points in the first three quarters, and Denver thoroughly dismantled New Orleans 121-63 on Monday night to take a commanding 3-1 series lead.
The New Orleans Arena was mostly empty by the end of the third quarter, when Denver led 89-50 on its way to matching the most lopsided victory in NBA playoff history. The Minneapolis Lakers beat the St. Louis Hawks 133-75 in 1956.
Looking twice as quick as New Orleans on both ends of the court, the Nuggets stifled Hornets All-Star Chris Paul, whose four points and six assists amounted to one of the worst games of his career.
I’m surprised New Orleans managed to win one game in this series. Denver could make it to the Championship finals.
The first reason is that I’m sick of flip phones. Ever since the iPhone has come out I have wanted one. Since the first flip phone I have owned, I hated them. On my list of the flip phones I have owned and broken, are: a Nokia flip phone, an LG one, and most recently a Motorola Razr V3. A person like me who constantly drop, throw, and accidentally step on your belongings, you need a sturdy phone. My only problem with non-flip phones in the past was making calls while the phone was in my pocket. The Instinct allows the user to set a specific amount of time for the screen to lock after inactivity.
The second reason is its ideal price in its class. After a great amount of research, I decided that it was the best deal for the money. The Apple iPhones will cost me more than several cars I have owned. A 3G iPhone with $199 as the marketing price, cannot be found on eBay for less than $400.
The various features of the Samsung Instinct is also an attraction. With live TV and turn-by-turn navigation, this device would be worth the price even if you couldn’t make phone calls, text messages, and surf the web. The television channels offered are the dream of a sports lover (like me). You can choose freely among Fox Sports, SPEED, and even NFL Mobile!
The LG Versa is a touch-screen phone， but not a usual one. It’s not bragging to say that it is the most versatile phone one’s ever seen. The unique option of adding external modules to increase its function versatility is what makes it outshine others. For instance, the Versa comes with an attachable QWERTY keyboard, but if you loath having the extra bulk annoying you, just detach it and you can still type with the virtual keyboard on the touch screen. Additional modules are being considered to be added in the future, such as a game pad controller which makes LG Versa a cute PS3 and external speakers.
Even if you omit the amazing addable modules, the Versa is still a very good touch-screen phone. It provides an animated interface, where you can customize three home screens. The Versa has a full HTML browser with support for Flash Lite, which means watching your favorite YouTube clips is not just a dream any more. Other features include GPS, stereo Bluetooth access to V Cast Video and V Cast Music, and you also get a 2.0-megapixel camera.
Though the lack of Wi-Fi and the less satisfactory browsing experience should be blamed, Versa’s promise of future modules is still impressive.
There are some things you need to notice when suing it:
1. One good thing is the push open button but eventually it causes the phone to crack
2. The battery is ok at first then it starts two wear away. This problem results from its lack of a power-save mode meaning you can’t turn the lights off on the phone or keypad, and this increases the battery consumption.
3. Converting songs from mp3 player is easy and the other accessories as well are pretty easy to use especially if you are a technology person.
4. When taking pictures, make sure that the lens are clean given that the pictures will be blurry and you can’t close the phone to take pictures.
5. For people who travel a lot, you may want to have another phone because when I travel, I sometimes don’t have a signal for hours which can be dangerous.
6. Sending pictures are good but it may take a lot of trouble shooting and complaining in order to receive pictures as text messages from all carriers.
7. If you look at the general picture, the phone is nice and durable. I’ve dropped this phone plenty of times and it has no scratches or cracks. That’s an incredible advantage and the main reason I got the phone.
It is a good choice for you, isn’t it?
Generally speaking the Vaio JS190J resembles the look of a typical all-in-one PC. It has a built-in webcam lens bon the top of its edge, a Blue-ray drive opens out from the side as well as an adjustable foot on the back. Its new keyboard design even borrows its looks in no small part from Apple’s iMac keyboard. The unit itself measures approximately 16 inches high by 19.1 inches wide by 2.1 inches deep, stand excluded, which makes it about 2 inches shorter than the iMac.
The Vaio JS190J is remarkably faster than its competitors whose impressive performance wins can be attributed to the Sony’s desktop CPU. As for the other all-in-one computers, they all use slower laptop chips. But not the Vaio JS190J, whose integrated graphics chip, though holds it back from playing advanced 3D games, still for all other tasks, no other all-in-one desktop can match the performance of the Vaio JS190J. If you need an all-in-one PC for productivity of any kind, don’t hesitate to get this system. It’s worth your faith and fee.
Other ports on the system comprise a Gigabit Ethernet port, SD Card and MemoryStick Pro inputs, five USB 2.0 jacks, analog ports for headphones and as well as a microphone.
