In the case of mobile devices, until recently, we’ve talked about single-core processor with a frequency of around 1 GHz and memory of 512 MB, and now such values seem archaic and do not allow for efficient handling of mobile operating systems. But are you sure they don’t? Manufacturers of device who make use of the Android OS have begun the hardware race, as it has always required a fairly large capacity and very large amounts of memory – now smartphones and tablets with less than four cores and 1 GB of memory are considered representatives of the medium or even low-end, which some time ago was unthinkable.
Apple has adopted a completely different strategy for the development of its mobile platforms – they have placed a much bigger emphasis on optimization and maximum use of available hardware resources – smartphones and tablets with the famous logo do not have multi-core units and memory with large capacity, and are still doing quite well with applications support for the operating system. Currently, the latest tablet, Apple iPad Air, has a 64-bit Apple A7 processor and M7 coprocessor, which allows traffic to relieve traffic from the CPU when it has to calculate the data from various phone sensors.
It is no secret that the Cupertino company have been preparing the launch of the new iPhone quite for some time already, which, in addition to the larger display, is also to receive a new processing unit – very accurate information about it appeared on the Net, so you might want to know what we’ll be dealing with – Apple A8 processor will not be equipped with four or eight cores, unlike competitive units for smartphones with Android. The manufacturer has once again chosen to go with two cores, but they will be clocked quite high, at least 2 GHz.
The system will be manufactured in 20-nanometer process mainly by Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC), so Samsung can slowly count the losses associated with a further reduction in orders from Apple. IPhone Developer was looking for a long time for alternatives to Samsung products, and as you can see it’s going quite smoothly – orders for Apple A8 processor are to provide a tenth of the total production at TSMC, so Taiwanese manufacturer may be the most satisfied.

In recent times there has been a trend for abandoning the technology offered by Microsoft for open solutions in the form of Linux and software that is distributed under open source license. The first country that has not reached an agreement with the corporation from Redmond and decided to start abandoning Windows machines was China. The most populated country in the world was trying to get along with Microsoft concerning the extension of support for Windows XP only for their country – in China, virtually the entire public administration operates under the control of that operating system. It was to be expected that Microsoft would not agree to such a contract, because the intention of killing this legendary system was already in the plans for a long time. China in response to the decision announced they do not intend to pass on Windows 8 and commence work on its own, open operating system.
A similar strategy was adopted South Korea, which by 2020 wants to get rid of Microsoft technology forever. It will not be an easy task – many web applications offered by public administrations use the ActiveX control. The same situation also applies to the commerce, but the most common system is fortunately Windows 7, and its support will be completed already in 2020.
There was a special conference hold on 25 June, where a flow chart of a plan to create their own and independent of the operating system was presented, which in addition to a number of tools will have its own ecosystem. Not only they will be making their own open operating system, the ActiveX format will be replaced with HTML 5, and public documents will be presented in several popular formats, including PDF. The first part of introduction is planned to happen before 2018, and after that the government is to evaluate if the change is brining any savings, and if so, it shall continue.
Some Korean experts point out one very serious problem in this bold plan – lack of standardization of document formats. Each of us knows how important it is to standardize – the more formats, the more applications you have installed on your computer. In addition, developers creating alternative software must deal with the proper implementation of several solutions.
Microsoft has so far not commented on the reports. Will South Korea fail to implement this bold plan? We will be able to tell in just few years, I guess.
The configuration is the most important decision, with respect to the laptops. It directly affects the quality and cost of the laptops. It should be decided, considering the utility factors of an individual.
Many branded laptops come with a rigid configuration standards, which might not suit our requirements. In such situations, it would be worthy to go for local, unbranded laptops. These cheap laptops are sufficient to cater our needs in such situations.
Understanding the elements, which influence the configuration, can help in selection of best configuration, based on our requirements and budget.
Motherboard and processor
The computer functioning and working completely depends on the motherboard, which includes the processor. There is a high variation between the levels of processor. Selecting a branded medium level processor is important. Such processors do not get outdated and present a good resale value in future.
The hard disk can influence the cost on a very low percentage. But, if you are looking to purchase an extremely large capacity of hard disk, you might have to shed a lot of money, as large capacity of hard disk, are generally available only for high end configuration laptops.
The hard disk should possess a reasonable size, as we tend to store a lot of movies, games, files, etc, for viewing it, on the move. A 350GB or 500GB hard disk would ideal for any laptop. Big hard disk space should be avoided, for low configuration laptops.
RAM is described as Random Access Memory. It is an important element, which decides the processing speed of the computer. RAM directly affects the browsing speed of the computer. A good capacity of RAM can be quite useful.
A RAM of 4GB for normal procedures and a RAM of 8GB for multi tasking procedures should be preferred. The RAM considered should be upgradable in nature, especially when lower capacity of RAM is bought, it should be easily upgradable for future needs and requirements.
RAM should be considered, looking into other configuration elements. For a cheap processor, high capacity RAM will result in waste of money. Similarly, using low capacity RAM for high tech processors, can lead to ineffective performance.
For people running high graphic applications, it is an important area of concentration. People, who like to play games, watch movies in HD, perform CAD work, etc, should consider a good graphic card.
The graphic card come with dedicated or in built option. The dedicated graphic card is quite costly and should only be used for running extremely high end graphic applications. In built graphic cards can be used for running normal operations of work and play.
The graphic cards come in various capacities. The apt capacity can be selected, based on our requirements.
The branded laptops come with a pre organized configuration. Not many options are available, in case of branded laptops, with respect to the configuration. They are suitably configured naturally. In such cases, selecting the most important element of the configuration, based on the utility and requirements is important. That item should be used as an element, which indicates the type and capacity of other configuration elements.
In today’s world, webcams play a huge role in communication. While we may have a great front cameras on our phones, allowing us to make calls in HD resolution with other people on online services like Skype, our computers have been left a bit behind on this aspect – not only our PCs don’t come with a webcam built in, neither do most of the laptops, and even if they do, they are low quality. That’s why I’ve decided to write an article about how to choose a webcam for your computer, as you WILL be needing it!
Webcam main task is to provide a steady and clear image to the computer, so it can be viewed by the person on another part of the world. I assume we can all agree that talking face to face instead of photo to photo is a more enjoyable experience, in general. Not only that, but being able to take a picture of your face for random occasions may turn out to be a necessity.
Now, to the main topic. What should you be looking at when deciding to buy new one? Well, the first thing that probably came to your mind was megapixels – and that’s not really a bad thing. You have to know though, they are often not a measurement of the quality. It’s better to browse the internet for sample pictures taken by one in order to justify their “skills” in taking pictures. The next thing is the connection to the PC and compatibility with your operating system. It would be a pity to spend some hard-earned money on a new webcam only to find out it doesn’t work with your new Chromebook. Nowadays, it’s rarely the case, but better safe than sorry.
All in all, I believe webcams are a necessary part of equipment for every personal computer nowadays. Not only they allow you to talk face to face with people online, they might come handy for when you need a new Facebook profile picture.

The next Humble Bundle is all about the core origins of the project – a pack of games originally sold by indie developers that need some more renown than their originally aimed for. With the success all bundles have got in the past, it’s not a surprise that more and more publisher are looking for a chance to put their work on sale in the well-known “pay-what-you-want” scheme now. Enough of the introduction – let’s get to the thing everyone is waiting for, the games that you can get your hands on this time!
This bundle may be a bit different in comparison to the last few ones. We have six games at the moment, with a confirmation that more are soon to appear in the bundle for people who pay over the average. None of them share a developer or a publisher, hence the difference to the previous ones. One of the most important things – all of the games available at the moment are playable on all computer operating systems, namely Windows, Mac OS X and whatever Linux distribution you might be using. This plays a huge role in case someone possess, for example, a MacBook Air, which has a limited processing power and a different operating system, but will be able to run all of the games in the bundle – pure magic!
As to the games, in the basic pack we have 4 indie games, namely Guacamelee! Gold Edition, an interesting combination of a fighter and a platformer game, set in Mexican world, Dust: An Elysian Tale, an adventure game set in a hand-drawn world with a easy-to-learn combat system, Giana Sisters : Twisted Dream, a demanding platformer for the hardcore gamers and The Swapper, yet another platformer with puzzle elements that has won numerous indie awards, set in the outer space.
If you pay more than the average, which at the moment stays at the level of 4 dollars 58 cents, you get two more games – Antichamber, a very interesting puzzle game which has won tons of awards in the indie community, including PAX and Make Something Unreal, and Monaco: What’s Yours Is Mine, which is the winner of 2010 IGF Grand Prize competition. Made specifically for co-op gameplay, it revolves around getting out of jail.
All in all, Humble Bundle came back to the origins with this one – we get 6 awesome games made by independent developers for as much as we desire to pay. Is it worth getting? Most likely, but if you don’t like puzzle and platform games, you might want to think about it.
I’ve recently stumbled upon the indie gaming category and I’ve been amazed since then. There are a lot of great games available, created by studios that often contain less than 5 people working on the game. The prices themselves can make a big point while pondering on the purchase, as they are way, way lower than the AAA level games. Humble Bundle became famous for selling bundles of indie games, allowing the no-so-known producers build up their name and gather money for next projects, but from time to time they manage to get some good deals with well-known studios and this week’s sale is perfect example of that!
Codemasters will always have a place in my heart for their epic game series of Colin McRae Rally games. As a teenager, I couldn’t stop spending all day playing them with my brother. I remember making bets who could get a faster time. Nevertheless, the company is now one of the oldest British game publishers and producers, having started out in 1985. Richard and David Darling founded Codemasters after leaving Mastertronic and rapidly gained recognition on the ZX Spectrum games market, most of it due to the Dizzy puzzle game.
This week’s bundle is, as always, divided into two parts – one for as low as you want to pay and one for over 6 dollars. In the basic pack, we can find two shooters, one RPG and two kind-of strategy games. Overlord and Overlord: Raising Hell DLC will let you become and evil overlord and command over your band of minions to win over the world and rebuild your Dark Tower, using four kinds of your servants. Operation Flashpoint : Red River and Operation Flashpoint : Dragon Rising are two realistic modern warfare simulators, which will try to simulate the Russia/USA-China conflict over the oil as realistic as possible for your enjoyment. Rise of the Argonauts is a stereotypical RPG with a bit of love, monster slaying and gods set in ancient Greece. Become the servants of gods you always wanted to be in this RPG game.
If you pay more than 6 dollars, you will gain access to two racing games and another strategy game. DiRT Showdown and DiRT 3 will take you for an adventure through the Grand Prix tracks with realistic driving engine that will make even the best racers struggle to complete the tracks, meanwhile Overlord 2, the sequel to Overlord, will let your minions have their owns minions and wreck oven more havoc on the battlefield.
I believe this pack is one of the best deals I’ve seen in a long time, with 7 action-packed games for as low as 6$. Get it while you can!

Minecraft is basically an online sandbox indie play first developed by Markus Persson and later engineered and gained publication by Mojang. This expansive and equally pretty sandbox game welcomes the player to the world of creativity while at the same time allowing them to roam within a geographically accurate representation of Britain with ease and proficiency. What is more, the game was able to race over 100,000 players during its first year of inception only pausing for a whooping reputation across all ends. And now two years down the line, Minecraft reaps from a whooping 33 million players globally.
Because of this, many platforms are finding it awarding to offer the game for free as it is currently at the peak of fame. Minecraft for free therefore saves a lot to avid and regular players while at the same time opening doors for further development to the game. This has therefore made the video game a solution to players driven by playing concerns but still need the best playing solutions in the shortest time possible.
Minecraft for Free – The World of Creativity
Minecraft for free puts players in a randomly-generated world where they can design their own contraptions and structures solely from textured cubes. This therefore means that the game is about philosophy, tactics and strategy and that part of the fun is playing across the board. Further, with two primary modes, creative and survival, the game allows the player to engage the mind and sharpen the brain and especially for the latter mode. This makes every playing encounter quite fascinating and an opportunity to reap from increased thinking and creativity.
And anytime with all these merits, features and capabilities, minecraft for free is proving really worth game for anyone. Thankfully, as many online and video games lag in the implementation of interoperable systems that can increase playing experience and empower both players and developers, then, minecraft for free will always be there to solve these inefficiencies.
