  • Smartphones are becoming smarter as we have advanced technologically over the past ten years. Smartphones as well as their smartphone platforms usually all enable support touch-screens and/or keyboards, and let you browse the Internet; run applications view photos and play games/music/movies. In reality, while many of the Smartphone platforms may act the same on a fundamental level, not all Smartphone platforms are created equally. Here's some of the most popular Smartphone Platforms:


    Cross Platforms: The Difference in Smartphone Platforms


    The Apple OS was developed and distributed by Apple Corporation in 2007 for the iPhone and the iPad touch with adaptability to support other Apple Devices such as the iPad and Apple TV. In 2012 Apple iOS has a collection of more than 650,000 iOS applications, which have collectively been downloaded more than 30 billion times, according to Apple.com. Most users who use the Apple iOS have an average of forty eight usable applications at any given time. Whereas; Android users follow with 35, a number which is 27% lower. The Apple iOS platform which currently resides on iPhones, iPads and iPod Touches has a combined platform reach of 37.9 million among all United States mobile devices including phones, tablets and other such connected media devices. The newest Apple iOS 6 is said to include Siri which can query for sports scores, dinner reservations with OpenTable, and movie times via RottenTomatoes. The Apple iOS 6 is expected to features a few new surprises. Apple is adding a new service called Passbook, which will let people store tickets, passes, gift cards, and other documents in digital form. However, some of the best new features of the iOS 6 include its new Facebook integration which will allow users will be able to fire off status updates, share photos, and share links directly from within other iOS applications.


    "iOS 6 continues the rapid pace of innovation that is helping Apple reinvent the phone and create the iPad category, delivering the best mobile experience available on any device," said Apple's iOS software chief, Scott Forstall. "We can’t wait for hundreds of millions of iOS users such as iPhone 4, iPad 3, etc to experience the incredible new features in iOS 6 including the new Maps app, expanded Siri support, deep Facebook integration, Shared Photo Streams and the innovative new Passbook application.”


    Cross Platforms: The Difference in Smartphone Platforms


    While the Apple iOS is very popular among iPhone 4S, iTouch and iPad users it still has some very tough competition with the Android OS. The Android OS is considered to be a computer geek's greatest dream, tragedy and triumph. In layman's terms the Android OS is completely opened source meaning that any feature you want on your Smartphone can be achieved or received through or by the Android OS. Some other features of the Android OS including improvements to speed up processing, but the big news is it now supports Flash 10.1. Google has also added improvements to speed up processing, but the big news is it now supports Flash 10.1 and Google Voice Search adds a slew of features you can control by voice. So yes, I guess it’s true Smartphones are certainly smarter and so are the Smartphone platforms.

The suspect was booked into jail on charges of possessing stolen property and has an extensive criminal record of arrests and convictions for similar crimes.


    Apple Store thieves arrested after robbery:


    Apple Stores continue to be a target for theft around the United States this time in Scottsdale, AZ where a trio of young thieves busted in the glass doors on an Apple Store, and tried to get away with $75,000 worth of Apple devices. The group robbed the store at around 2 AM on the second day of 2012 and thanks to an alert cab driver and the Find My iPhone” applications the thieves were nabbed within hours of the Apple Store robbery. The robbers actually started firing guns on the taxi driver, who followed them anyway, and was able to make enough of an identification (along with security camera footage) that cops were able to arrest the three thieves. Thankfully, the Apple Store suffered no more damage than a few broken windows.

  • Smart Shopping: Smartphones for Shopping


    Smartphones are common electronic device that incorporates multiple computing capabilities into the basic form of a cellular phone with basic capabilities beyond basic phone and text capabilities, Smartphones typically offer audio/video playback, personal organization applications, Internet access, and global positioning system. Smartphones such as iPhone 4S, Galaxy S3. HTC. etc are also now offering the capability for shopping too (for many women that is a very exciting concept). Currently more than 30% of consumers with smartphones said while at a store looking for a product, they scout out better deals on their device. Simply put more consumers are using their Smartphones for “smart” shopping, mobile shopping is tearing down the doors, walls and windows of traditional brick-and-mortar stores by giving consumers the ability to easily find a cheaper price in a store down the street. Some of the more common Smartphone applications being used include Google Shopper, RedLaser and TheFind, allow consumers to look up a product by scanning it or typing in the bar code by allowing a list of prices for the same item at nearby stores or through online retailers.


    A recent study conducted by Greystripe has discovered that mothers make up more than two thirds own an iPhone, Android or other type of Smartphone use them in the shopping process for locating stores, comparing prices, and learning about new products are all ways that phones can make their lives easier. Other studies show that 45% of mothers use their Smartphones to locate the nearest store, 36% of mother's use their phone for price comparison and 31% of mother's use their Smartphones for price comparison.


    Smart Shopping: Smartphones for Shopping


    “Smartphones have become the super tool for busy moms on the go,” said Dane Holewinski, director of marketing at Greystripe. “The majority of moms with Smartphones are using those devices for their day-to-day tasks especially shopping, making them the ideal target for advertisers.”


    With the widespread news that many consumers are using their Smartphones like BlackBerry, Apple, Samsung, etc.. for “smart shopping.” offers some opportunities to challenge retailers to meet the changing demands of smarter shoppers with smarter technology. Some suggestions include:


    1)      Begin by improving your multichannel shopping experience for your Smartphone shoppers by focusing on your services that adapt technology such as how can a service be integrated between Smartphones, laptops, tablets and traditional mailing services.


    2)      Remember it’s about pleasing your customers in order to lead to  better acceptance and build trust with customers, companies should limit pushing offer notification to the customers because too much notification is unnecessary.


    3)      Smartphones can be used to scan bar-codes and QR codes and companies could integrate this within their app to help customers make their shopping decisions.


    4)      Make the Smartphone users shopping experience relevant to your business because there are certain advantages that smart phone have and those advantages should be highlighted by every business whether brick-and-mortar or Internet expenditure.

  • It's always been said that a woman can literally talk your hand, head or even your ear off. Well last year  in 2011 an Oregon woman was kindly escorted off an Amtrak train for a reportedly very loud and very long sixteen hour cellphone conversation on her BlackBerry smartphone. Lakeysha Beard, a 39 year old traveling from Oakland, CA to Salem, OR was kicked off the train for allegedly yapping on her smartphone for nearly 16 hours of the ride, while sitting in the prestigious car. Let me also note that she wasn't finally escorted off the train until after many multiple and unsuccessful attempts, from both passengers and Amtrak crew members, at asking Ms. Beard to stop because after all she was supposed to be sitting in a “quiet car” aboard the Amtrak Train.


    Woman Kicked off Train for 16 hour Cellphone Call


    Amtrak does have a policy against obnoxious blathering, specifically in "quiet cars" like the one Beard was supposed to be traveling in and of course, if those policies aren't follow well Amatrak reserves the right to escort you off their train system. In a follow-up interview with KATU.com, Beard confirmed she was blathering away on her mobile device, but that “she didn't understand why she had to be escorted off the train.” She was also charged with disorderly conduct and perhaps were long winded conversation may even make the Guinness Book of World Records for the longest conversation on a train.

  • In early 2009 with the arrival of the newest Apple creation and innovation, the Apple iPhone a teenager in France claimed that he was injured after his girlfriend's iPhone exploded, sending shattered glass toward his eye. It got even worse when a man in the Netherlands had his iPhone 3G burned a hole in the seat of a car. In a statement released in September 2009 Apple told the Commission earlier this week that "these are isolated incidents and that there is not a general problem.” However here's some of the Funniest (Human) iPhone Catastrophes caused by human error, an accidental mistake or even a simple oops moment.


    The Six Funniest (Human) iPhone Catastrophes


    1)      “My iPhone went through the washing machine.” Yes, as we all know water is an electrical devices worst enemy. It's been discovered that the iPhones have a red line on the base of the phone where the charger attaches aka its also known as a liquid submersion indicator. Unfortunately, water seems to be the cause of the highest mortality among iPhone users because of the thorough and prolonged penetration of the water.


    2)      “I plugged my iPhone into my car charger, and it started to smoke.” Whereas most 12 volt electrical system of today's modern car are necessary and primarily for headlights and interior lights was not designed to handle the loads of modern cars with their big stereos, myriad gadgets and electronic features. The good news is that your iPhone can an be repaired cheaply, unlike the iPhone in the washing machine. Usually it simply means you'll need an inexpensive dock connector replacement because most Apple iPhones have a built layering of surge protection.


    3)      “I dropped the iPhone and the screen cracked.” The average iPhone users dispatched their iPhones at least 40 times per day whether putting or pulling the Smartphone in and out of your purse, pocket or handbag. Luckily, once again most Apple iPhones have a built in screen connector and worse case if it does get cracked or scratched screen is easily replaceable or fixable.


    4)      “My iPhone won't charge.”  Too many iPhone users tend to assume when their iPhone battery won't charge it's a conspiracy against Apple Corporation and a secret iPhone Lemon Battery scandal. The good news is the rumors aren't true and the advice is simple: take care when plugging the cable into the iPhone and always verify you're using the right cable and have plugged it into the right charger or outlet. Apple advises to to run the iPhone completely dead and then charge it until it can't take anymore charge and the repeat the process because this will allow the chips to become fully synced again.

    5)      “I tried to repair my iPhone myself, and now it doesn't work.” This is the worst mistake any novice Apple iPhone user can ever make or attempt to make. If you don't know what's wrong with your iPhone, its always best to seek a second opinion and usually from someone who knows something about iPhones i.e. an Apple Corporation Repair Technician.


    6)      “My son (or daughter) says nothing happened, it just stopped working.” There are two kinds of parents in this world those that believe everything their child tells them and those that tend to know better. Sometimes it's a parent's intuition to know that their iPhone was dropped in water or that an iPhone was accidentally jammed the wrong cable into the iPhone dock connector.
