Top 5 Reasons Not to Own an iPhone

Top 5 Reasons Not to Own an iPhone

Apple has done a great job telling the world about their iPhone. The advertising has worked and the iPhone is one of the hottest cell phones to own. For those interested in keeping up with the Jones’ the iPhone is a must have item this year and probably next year too. The question is does the Apple iPhone live up to the hype. Is the iPhone really worth top dollar? What do the users say? Here are the top 5 reasons not to own an iPhone.

The first reason is the price. This is a very expensive cell phone. The average price for an iPhone is between $500 – $600. That is a lot of money for a phone. At this price it is really a luxury item as there are phones that offer similar features for a lot less money. For internet and email capabilities you can get a Blackberry or Motorola Q for a lot less than an iPhone. If you are looking for touch screens and music, there are hundreds of phones that will suit these requirements without having to shell out so much money. Although the iPhone’s advertising is geared toward teens and young adults, does a teenager really need a $500 cell phone? This is the fist reason in our Top 5 reasons not to own an iPhone: Price.

Reason number two in the top 5 reasons not to own an iPhone, the battery. Did you know that you cannot replace the battery in your iPhone? If that battery dies, you are out of luck. Apple decided that soldering the battery to the unit was preferable to offering a proprietary battery or any standard cell phone battery. This way when your battery dies, and without a doubt it will in under two years, you have to get a new iPhone. Apparently many users did not realize this as Apple made no effort to make this common knowledge. Now they are in litigation over the battery issue. Therefore, if you are considering buying an iPhone be sure to get a warranty that covers the battery if you can. Otherwise you will be paying for another phone within 24 months which is the average life of a cell phone style battery.

Reason three: Internet access. Although the iPhone is touted as having amazing internet capabilities, there are many shortcomings to its browser. The browsers search capabilities are severely lacking. This makes finding what you want on the internet difficult and time consuming. The other feature the browser lacks is the ability to store passwords. This may have been done as a security measure as cell phones are not as secure as a laptop, PC or Mac. However, keeping track of a lot of passwords is difficult. Internet searching and browser issues is our third reason.

Reason four not to own an iPhone is memory. You can purchase a 6 GB, an 8 GB, or a 16 GB iPhone. When you use up all of your available space on the iPhone, you must delete or back off content to another device like your PC or Mac. Many iPhone proponents claim that this storage capacity removes the need for a separate MP3 player, such as an iPod, therefore saving you money. In reality, teens can download 16 GB of music and video in an amazingly short amount of time. This leaves no memory for other applications or photos. You will still need a separate MP3 player so there are no real savings to be had here. There is no ability to upgrade the memory via a memory card or flash drive. This is another area where the iPhone is lacking.

Finally, reason number five in our top 5 reasons not to own an iPhone is the service provider. You are limited to AT&T’s cell phone service packages for the iPhone if you wish to use it. These packages are expensive as they all include data and internet. AT&T has no incentive to change their iPhone service pricing because they have exclusive rights to provide service to the iPhones. This has led to a great number of hacked iPhones on the market that can be used on other networks. As long as Apple and AT&T’s agreement stays exclusive, you will have hackers.

Overall, the iPhone is an overpriced, over hyped, cell phone. These top 5 reasons not to own an iPhone are valid and you should consider this before you buy one.

Creative Birthday Party Ideas

Creative Birthday Party Ideas

I love throwing parties. Anyone who knows me well knows that there is nothing that energizes me more than planning and throwing a wonderful birthday party. It took me several years of planning parties for myself, my family and my friends before a wise soul suggested that I look into becoming a professional party planner. Why the thought had never crossed my mind, I have no idea, but I took her advice and quickly checked into a possible profession. My biggest reason for becoming a party planner was that I loved coming up with great birthday party ideas. Why not get paid to do what I love?

Birthday party ideas can be as simple or as ornate as you want them to be. I have been to amazing parties where the food, the decorations, and the activities were all very simple and it turned out well. I have also been to many lavish parties where each element of the event was given a great amount of detail and care. The important thing in coming up with birthday party ideas is to think carefully about the person you are celebrating.

Remembering the birthday person is the most important thing you can do in gathering birthday party ideas. After all, you are celebrating the birth and life of a person you care about, so why not make their celebration something they will love. Think about their interests, passions and likes when you are coming up with birthday party ideas for them.

Some of the best birthday party ideas are planned around a theme that reflects the birthday person. Try to come up with a great theme that will be fun to celebrate and that will allow you to easily incorporate food, decorations and events into the party.

What I love about party planning is sitting down with my clients over lunch or coffee. I always begin by having them tell me the kind of celebration they are hoping for. If people have no goals in party planning, then it will be really hard to come up with the perfect birthday party ideas. I’ve been surprised to find that people have many more ideas than they even think they do. All they need is a little help organizing their ideas for the party.

Grab a notebook and make a list of initial birthday party ideas for the next event you are planning. And enjoy the planning process. It can be fun, rewarding and even relaxing when you start with great birthday party ideas.

Troubleshooting Your iPhone

Troubleshooting Your iPhone

Where you can turn to and what can you do if you are having problems with your iPhone. There are many reasons that you might be experiencing problems. Before you can correct what is wrong, you have to know what is causing your problems. Apple’s website has a lot of information about what you can do to correct your iPhone problems. Listed below are some common issues. Troubleshooting your iPhone is not as difficult as you would think. Let us take a look at some common problems and solutions.

Is your iPhone “frozen” or not working? If so, let’s take a look and see why. Does it need to be recharged? You can charge the iPhone with a high-powered USB port, not on a low powered one. If you are using your PC to charge your iPhone, be sure that your USB port is a high-powered port. If you are using a USB hub, check the power, some are low powered, your keyboard USB port (if you have one) is low powered. Only a high-powered USB port will charge your iPhone.

If you are sure that your iPhone is fully charged, try restarting it. To do this hold the sleep/wake button and wait for a red colored slider to appear. Then slide your finger across this red slider and this will turn off the unit. Wait at least 10 seconds before you restart. You restart the iPhone by holding the sleep/wake button until you see the Apple logo.

Is your iPhone locked up? Did an application freeze? If you press the home button and continue holding for about 6 seconds or so you should be able to cancel the program that is locked up. Then restart your iPhone.

There is the ability to actually reset the Apple iPhone. To do this you need to press and hold the wake/sleep button and the home button at the same time. Keep holding these two buttons down at the same time until the Apple Logo appears. Ignore any other symbols that may appear. It is important that you wait for the Apple Logo before releasing the two buttons.

Sometimes content that is not synced properly will cause problems for your iPhone. This will require more than a restart. Connect your iPhone to your computer and go to the iTunes site. Change your sync options for each of the following categories: contacts, podcasts, calendars, videos, and MP3s. You may have to remove several files that may be causing problems.

If none of the above items work when troubleshooting your iPhone, try resetting it. Go to settings and then general, then reset, then reset all settings. This will reset everything but keep all of your files and documents intact. Hopefully this will solve your problems. However if you are still having problems with your iPhone at this point you may have to reset the phone. This will unfortunately remove all of your saved files, folders, and content so do this with caution. You may want to try to backup all of your content before attempting this. To reset all of the iPhone’s settings, go to settings, select general, then choose reset, and finally pick erase all contents and settings. Everything on your iPhone will be reset and all of your content that you have saved will be erased. This will include pictures, music and videos, text messages, files, folders, added on applications and more. It puts your iPhone back to the state when you first bought it. Use this option with care.

As you can see there are many ways to reset or unfreeze your iPhone. If you are still having problems the best advice I can give you is to go to Apple’s website and click on the troubleshooting guide for the iPhone. They have an enormous amount of information out there for you. Just go to apple.com and follow the links to get to the iPhone troubleshooting area. This may be the best way for troubleshooting your iPhone.

Childrens Birthday Party Planner

Childrens Birthday Party Planner

Planning a children’s birthday party is no easy task. There are some well-meaning parents who choose to set up and organize their kids’ parties themselves, because not only is it cheaper than having to hire a professional birthday party planner, it also allows them to feel more bonded with their child. Do it yourself planning, however, requires a significant amount of time, effort and energy.

Hence, given the extremely busy schedules of today’s parents, it seems very practical to have someone else, an expert on the matter, do the nitty gritty. After all, the working parent surely can’t commit to being on the phone talking to caterers and party supplies shops all day.

Even if he or she will have a big hand in deciding what kind of children’s birthday party will be thrown, there are very minute details (like what to put inside the goodie bags) that will need attention.

Small Stage Hire For School

 

You may scan the local yellow pages for a listing of children’s birthday party planners in your area. Or you can also surf the Internet for reviews. If you don’t have the time to visit the party planner’s office, the worlwide web is your best source. Since professional party planner are becoming more in demand right now, you definitely won’t run out of prospects in your search.

Of course, in choosing a good party planner, go with one that has been tried and tested, or whose reputation has been consistently positive. You don’t need to go for the big-ticket party planner to ensure a fun and smooth-sailing event, but you do need a planner who is in tune with your child’s interest and needs.

If the planner does not seem to like children, then it’s not likely that he or she will be able to come up with a fun and memorable children’s birthday party.

Referrals from friends and relatives are also valuable. At least you are assured that somebody you know has good things to say about your prospect. In addition, referrals also decrease the awkward stage of having to check on your planner’s business background. You’ll be able to break the ice faster and express your needs better because you already have, in theory, something in common.

Thus, if you’re willing to pay a premium for convenience, then hire a professional party planner for your child’s birthday. You might not have the time to deal with the little details yourself, but the beaming look on your child’s face after will be well worth the extra expense.

The Apple iPhone for Business

The Apple iPhone for Business

If you view the advertising for the Apple iPhone, you would think that it is strictly for young adults to be used for pleasure. Most of the advertising focuses on the iPhone’s entertainment value. They focus on music, video, and Facebook. Overall, not very business like. However, the Apple iPhone for business purposes is something you do not see advertised much. Perhaps this is due to the fact that the only service provider for the iPhone is AT&T and they are not looking to cut anyone deals on iPhone services. Nevertheless, the iPhone can be a useful business tool; one just has to decide if the cost is worth it.

Is using the Apple iPhone for business really a viable option? It can be. Your particular business situation will dictate if this phone is something your company should consider or if it will be impractical. There are situations where the iPhone will shine and then there are other situations that will make it totally impractical.

You should consider the Apple iPhone for business if you need to stay in contact with others constantly. This would include texting, chatting, email and cell phone communications. An ideal example for an iPhone in a business environment is a buyer for a retailer. When the buyer goes to shows or other purchasing events, using the iPhone as a camera to send potential product to management can give the competitive edge to your business. The fashion industry lends itself to iPhone use. If you are attending the fashion shows in order to see which designer lines to bring in, then the iPhone is what you need. You can snap a picture or take a video of the hottest items still on the runway, send them to purchasing and orders can be placed before the end of business that day. If your business thrives on having the latest and greatest designer fashion in your shop, then the sooner you can place orders for the upcoming season, the more profitable you will be. If you do not get the new styles in first, someone else will. Antique dealers and art collectors will benefit from having an iPhone. There is no better way to send pictures of art and antiques to clients and to your business than with an iPhone. When you are looking to make purchases, you can keep customer wish lists with you, along with their contact info. If you find something they are looking for, you can let them know before you make an offer on the item. In a sense, you are pre-selling your inventory! It does not get any better than that. These are some of the ways that using the Apple iPhone for business purposes can be profitable. This would justify the cost.

On the other hand, if you are in an environment that is less than safe for a sensitive device like the iPhone then using the Apple iPhone for business probably will not make much sense. Construction sites, factories, assembly lines, shipping and receiving departments, and anything near water are not favorable to iPhone usage. The touch screen is very sensitive. Dirt, debris, water, moisture, grease and oil are not friends of the iPhone or any other cell phone. Industrial environments are too tough for this delicate phone. It does not handle being dropped well. There is a high risk of breaking the screen or damaging the unit. This is really a phone for a less stressful environment. If this is your particular business situation, then using the Apple iPhone for business is not a wise investment.

Therefore, now that you understand which business applications are suitable for iPhone use and which are not, you can decide where your business fits in. Should you buy the Apple iPhone for business? If you can justify the high costs of the phones, and using AT&T for your business cell phone service the perhaps it is worth it. You are the one who knows your companies finances. If the iPhone fits in then you can consider it. However, if you are in an industry that tends to be rough on laptops and cell phones or if you require an industrial strength walkie-talkie phone due to your working environment, then using the Apple iPhone for your business is not a viable option. What should you decide on?
