The new PS4

The new PS4 is set to be released at £349 later on this year around Christmas time, it will be cheaper than it’s rival XBOX 1. The XBOX 1 is priced at £429. The PS4 should get high sale ratings, it should sell well as a Christmas present.

The element that may annoy users is the fact that the console isn’t backward compatible, you won’t be able to play all of your old PS2 and PS3 games to work on this, so it depends, if you haven’t got any games from any previous Playstation consoles then it won’t be a problem for you. Another way that you can play your old Playstation games through the PS4 would be via an online stream. 140 games are currently in development for the PS4. 100 of which will be released this year.

The Sony PS4 has been criticised for it’s camera not being as good as the XBOX one.

For the time being there is only one PS4 being released compared to the PS3 when there were two GB sizes available depending on what you needed the console for. The PS3 has a move controller feature with a camera, many good games are compatible with this feature such as Harry Potter and Just Dance so be expected for an even better camera with the new gaming system.

Hardcore gamers will pay anything to snatch  up the latest consoles and will pre-order the console before it’s release date. If people wait a few months then the price will increasingly drop.

The best element of all is that there is no DRM restrictions which means you don’t have to be online to be able to play the games, compared to the XBOX where it is predominantly online gaming, you will be lost without an internet connection.

The new PS4 dual shock wireless controller looks pretty impressive, it includes a mic with jack, and a share button next to the triggers which enables users to share content with their friends; a similar concept to the XBOX. The controller looks sleeker and better than ever! You will be impressed!

It will be possible for players to take control of other peoples games- like Remote Assistance on a PC.

There are also many well- known franchise title games which will be released such as Kingdom Hearts and Final Fantasy ( perfect if you are an RPG geek like myself) !!

Samsung VS Apple

This is an up and coming discussion between the two rival companies- do you go for Samsung or Apple- that is the ultimate question! They are both competing to be in the top spot.

 

Apple iphone 5 VS Samsung S4.

Apple iphone 5: £199

Samsung S4: £400

 

There is definitely a big difference in price so we have to weigh up the pros and cons

Samsung are ahead of their game and surprisingly are making more money than Apple.

 

Samsung:

 

Takes photos with a front and back screen

4G Technology will be added on later this year

Can connect without a wifi signal

Talk time: 17 hours

 

Apple:

 

Has a 4′ retina display

Camera is 8 megapixels

 Most people seem to prefer Samsung over Apple. They have all of the same apps that Apple do: some people do find Apple more user friendly though, so it depends what you want to use your phone for.

The majority of people that come into our shop come in with iPhone trouble/ cracked screens issues, they are much more common than with Samsung phones.

 

My personal favourite is now the Samsung phone as opposed to the iPhone. The Samsung phone looks ultra fast and sleek- a smartphone more like a tablet and phone in one. My previous phones have been Apple but I think it is time to convert.

A good time for new technology!

Apple has some great new things on the horizon. The new OS System which is set to launch  in the Autumn of 2013 and also the new Macbook Air. Upon researching these two areas in these two completely different fields of technology, it seems like both of the new products have positive reviews. 

The new OS system review:

IOS 7-Ios 7 is making a appearance later on this year around September.  The format of the new system looks much more colourful and sleek.Also the weather widget will look better than ever, it literally will be like you are looking directly out of the window.

A admirable little feature is the Siri, it now can speak as a female or a male and soon enough in time to come Siri will also perform in a few different languages, something that you can ocupate with at your leisure in your free time.

 There is an added feature to the Phone function; if you are busy you can send a custom message such as “I am busy ” or “Talk to you later”, you also have the option to “reply with message” which means you can reply back via text message set to your own custom default.

Icloud is also a very useful device as you can pick up where you left off from your last web page session in Safari. This is very convenient and to a high standard and efficient.

 All in all, the features in the new Apple ios seem informative and impressive with all the latest added features. I can’t wait to try it……

Macbook air review:

 The new Macbook air now holds up to an astonishing 12 hours capability of battery life. The Macbook air is immediately lighter and more portable if you were to correlate with other laptops.

The new and improved Macbook air is now equpped with two USB 3 ports are installed

The new adapted mic performs well and is consistent as it reduces background noise from everything in the surrounding environment and it has a dual microphone so you are assured to be heard loud and clear.

The lighting has drastically improved, the laptop can be used any place whether it is dark or bright and you will still be able to use your laptop at its optimum performance, current arrousing issues i find with my current slightly older macbook is that when i am using it under sunlight i have difucutly viewing it.

This new Macbook Air sounds reputable and to be built to a high standard, so a positive review- 8/10
