Building a 2012 PC

We've passed the midway point of 2012 and as far as Computers are concerned a lot has been taking place. Intel released the 3rd generation Ivy Bridge processors earlier on in the year, nVidia pipped AMD with their Tahiti GPU's and SSD's are becoming fast a key requirement in current PC builds. My current 2008 PC is running flawlessly except for the cooling fan on the X1960 GT which died but it's about time for an upgrade, or better yet, a complete new 2012 system.

Setting up iOS [Part 2]

If you own an iOS device, staying informed about the features or latest additions to the OS is useless if you can't find a way to make these new features work for You, and not the other way around. The number of iOS users are ever-increasing but along with this surge in ownership figures, so is the ignorance or, more appropriate, failure to understand how some of the major features work. I would like to think that new technologies are released to build on previous iterations and to make tasks more efficient or convenient or better yet, accessible.

The following post talks about how you can set-up iOS to streamline day-to-day tasks such as checking email or keeping your files in sync in one place ('the Cloud', nowadays). In the next post I share some of my favourite iOS apps. Read on to find out how to make iOS work for you.

iOS for beginners, A practical walk-through : Part 1

"There's no chance that the iPhone is going to get any significant market share. No chance." Out of all the things a person can be quoted to have said, Microsoft CEO Steve Balmer hopes that everyone would have forgotten this gold nugget by now. Steve's remarks came shortly after the release of the iPhone in 2007. 

Apple's iPhone has gone through 5 major versions over the past 7 years compared to numerous different phones released by competitors. The iOS system has a significant market share and others including Microsoft and their fledgling Windows Mobile are desperately trying to make up lost ground to the World's most valuable company.

Owing to the domineering presence of iOS we thought our guide below would be of help to you by revealing a few tips we encountered along the way. 

Read on if you own an iOS device or are curious about the goings on behind the glassy walls of the Cupertino tech giant. Let's start with the basics.
