ITS UPGRADE TIME

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Time has come for me to upgrade my cellphone contract and i’m  having a crisis. I really love blackberry but what they have on the market at the moment is not comparable to the iphones and the androids . At the peak of the androids we have the Samsung Galaxy S III a beast of a phone that comes with a  quad core processor and Android 4.0 ICS . Its the best Android phone at the moment and some say its  better than the iphone 4 S . Also on  the android camp we have the HTC One X a phone  with the  best customized android  UI and also comes with with a quad core processor and android 4.0. There is nothing really that separates these phones , but i would prefer a Samsung because they have a better chance of unseating the iPhone as the best in the industry.

After having bought an iPad in Dec 2012 , i had a chance to experience iOS and i was really impressed with the simpleness of the UI . Everything just works for iOS and i really love using the iPad . Apple in iOS have the best OS in the industry at the moment . This has created a crisis for me as i am tempted to wait for the iPhone 5 , but i cant do that because it will probably be released in SA  2 months after its official release in the US , which may mean waiting until Dec 2012 and i cant  keep using my old Blackberry 9700 bold as its giving me a hard time with its constant freezing and memory leaks .

Blackberry currently is not an option as the phones they have on the market are lagging in many features . Upgrading to a newer blackberry would mean waiting another 2 years before i can upgrade and i cant wait for  BB 10 as its not certain when its ever gonna be released . The Bold 9900 is a great phone yes, for a new smartphone user, and if you have never used  a BB before . I really hope RIM come out with their  guns blazing when they release their BB 10 as we desperately need a third option .

That’s my crisis folks , but as it stands i leaning towards a Galaxy  S  III .

BGR’s BIASED REPORTING EXPOSED

The Boy Genius Report (BGR) a blog founded by Jonathan S Geller was exposed yesterday as nothing but an immature blog with nothing constructive to offer. Geller apparently went on a twitter rant because he was not given the Blackberry Alpha Device.

To our knowledge Geller is not a developer but a mere blogger , so he shouldn’t be complaining for not getting a device. His rants really showed he is immature and he really needs to grow up. It was a total embarrassment for him . He thought he was gonna get support from his readers but they turned the table on him accusing him of nonobjective and biased reporting .

Of the more than 135 comments none sided with him. Even his fellow apple fanboys criticised him for his lack of ethical journalistic skills.

Greg Kelly had this to say.
I have been planning on unfollowing BGR on Twitter and Google Reader for a while now, but I finally did it. Not because BGR hates RIM, but because articles like this are embarrasing and amatuer. I’m sorry that RIM didn’t want to give you a Dev Alpha for you to rip on for the next 6 months. Can you really blame them? Stop acting like a 5 year old and focus on your business. Articles like this show your true colors and make people like me stop reading your site. Good bye for good.”

Michael Hayes · Tampa, Florida also added in.
“Congratulations on thoroughly embarrassing yourself today by acting like a 15 year old. With all RIM is doing and has shown with bringing devs and games to the Playbook and BB10, for you to spout off about them bringing huge businesses on board like Cisco and Salesforce is beyond shallow and stubborn. Immediately following those announcements they went right into all the new game partners. Good job.”

A voice for Zimbabweans in SA

20120213-115827.jpg

I was at a function over the weekend and I was very delighted to meet and converse with my fellow countryman . We pretty much talked about everything from sports, politics and business. One of the ideas that came up was of an Internet radio station. It all started wen we were listening to some old school grooves and we started reminiscing the good old days of Peter Jones , Kudzi Marudza , Kelvin Sifelani and the Hitman . We came to the conclusion that SA radio stations do not cater for our musical tastes as Zimbos and that we might have to start an Internet radio station specifically targeted at Zimbabweans in SA .

So Guys please send us some ideas on how we can hatch this baby up. Even what you might think as a silly idea we will take into consideration .

You can send emails to blessing@mutwira.co.za

Is the apple iPad really worth it ?

20120210-101559.jpg

A month after buying the apple iPad 2 I’m starting to wonder if it was really worth it ? Compared to the other tablets on the market the iPad comes really short . Then the question is what makes it the top tablet in the world ? I think the answer lies in the great marketing campaign done by Apple.

To begin with the iPad lacks connectivity , you are locked to what apple wants u to have not what you want to do. I believe I should have the option to do what I want to do with my property after all it’s mine I bought it ? Apples closed system is very boring and contains so many restrictions. This is where android is coming in slowly but surely becoz it’s offering an alternative that has all the features the iPad has and more. In the end the iPad will end up like the Mac pc that lost out to windows.apple don’t have the consumers at heart , because they love to make profits even at the expense of slave labour in China .

Apples choice of its 30 pin connector is ridiculous … I mean who is still using that today ? Haven’t you heard of mini USB ? Then there is the lack of flash support, no hdmi connectivity, poor camera, the list goes on and on . The famed app store is full of crap apps . There is no angry birds or cuttherope games on the south African store. I can’t buy music on iTunes. so what’s the use for it . In fact I believe the blackberry playbook beats the iPad hands down if not for it’s lack of native email support. Apple has a reputation as being good starters but poor finishers . I stand to be corrected , but only time will tell.

Anyway thats just my opinion, but I am not liking what I bought and I’m regretting every cent I spent .
