Ufone is now charging WhatsApp calls as per the standard data tariffs, and that is 20 PKR for the 1st MB and then 19 MBs for free. The standard WhatsApp usage will be charged from the data bundle volume as per schedule. The new price method is effectual immediately.

WhatsApp calls, with an amazing voice quality, has turned out to be a great threat for the Pakistani telcos, particularly in the emergent markets where the voice revenues are still prominent and put in a key share towards the overall revenues of the telecom operators.

Even worse for such telecom companies, WhatsApp calls are more like a charm on the 3G networks and this is from where Ufone would like to gain more profit, and is now going to charge the WhatsApp calls as per the regular tariffs instead of the bucket volume.

Best Smartphones For Year 2015

Posted: 29th April 2015 by Sarah Aslam in Technology
Tags: , , , , , , , ,

With the market for Smartphones growing every year, it is tough to select merely one or two that stand out as exclusive. I have been able to select seven of them, which are the ones I believe are ideal for the modern-day user. Most of these have been unveiled at the Mobile World Congress that was arranged in March, 2015, in Barcelona, Spain.

Here are the smartphones I believe are performing the best at present:

–          The Samsung Galaxy S6

This is a Korean Smartphone that has actually generated a great deal of speculation regarding its features, both offline and online. Samsung has released a variety of other designs recently, but this appears to be one of the greatest flagship variations for the year 2015. There are basically two different versions for this phone; one comes with a metal case and the other is with a super-thin plastic casing with typical Samsung design. The device is now available both online and in shops for just 800 USD.

–          iPhone 6

It is a brave new world for Apple’s device, and it is certainly making a mark in this world. This Smartphone with a beautiful appearance and super-fast features totally supports the typical definition of a flagship Smartphone. The device is available for just 650 USD.

–          Samsung Galaxy Note 4

Samsung has launched the finest phablet seen to-date. In addition to a smart new look and a Quad HD display, Samsung has also greatly improved up the battery life, speed, camera quality and numerous other features. Big-screened smartphones cannot get any better! The Samsung phablet is available for only 800 USD

–          Nexus 6

The Nexus 6 has taken everyone by surprise. The battery life the device offers is good, the camera offers amazing results and the design and build are second to none. Even though its rivals hold an edge over it in several other areas, the differences are not huge. The device is available for only 700 USD.

–          Huawei Ascend D8 

The Chinese brand has come up with this amazing device with a high resolution panel, a 5.5″ display and 4GB RAM with 64 GB internal storage capacity. The Smartphone is intended to be launched in May, and is most likely to cost 800 USD.

–          Microsoft Lumia 1030 

This American Smartphone supports 5.5″ display as the older model, but with an amazingly high resolution electronic camera and four speakers to play and record sound.

–          Sony Xperia Z4

This assessment can absolutely not be complete without mentioning this Japanese Smartphone. Sony has come up with a 5.4″ QHD panel, using the 1080p display resolution and chipset Snapdragon 810. The latest update is that Sony has a 21 MP camera, which enables users to capture real-time HDR stills; It also supports a 192-point AF tech feature for shooting fast-moving objects without getting blurry results.

All of these smart phones might be considered high-priced, but compared to the prices of tablets and laptops; they are a lot less costly while providing nearly all their features. For most of the world, their Smartphone is actually their connection to the World Wide Web. It has now been a number of decades since mobile phones are being utilized most for calling and messaging family and friends, and these smartphones take this communication to a next level.

In general, all the great recent and upcoming smartphones seem to have a couple of features in common. They all definitely have amazing cameras along with enhanced storage space. Several other features are yet to be disclosed, and more details will be uncovered when some of these devices will be launched.

Apparently, China got in love with the iPhone 5.

Apple released the iPhone 5 in China on December 14, 2012, and was able to sell more than 2.1 million phones just within the first 3 days.

Tim Cook mentioned in a statement that the customer’s response towards iPhone 5 in the Chinese region has been unbelievable, which has set new records with the bestest first weekend sale even in China. For Apple, China is an extremely imperative market and customers there simply cannot wait to get their hands on the Apple gadgets.

By the end of December 2012, the iPhone 5 has been made available in 100 different countries. Apple marks it as the fastest and greatest iPhone roll-out to date.

Soon after so much wait, Apple finally has unveiled its iPhone 5 on September 12Th, 2012. IPhone fanatics have been dying to get their hands on the gadget. After too many rumors and speculations that have been around since the start of 2012, the gadget does not happen to answer to the prayers of millions of Apple fans worldwide as well as of its competitors.

There are two imperative aspects of this Smartphone that people do need to understand before they opt for it. First and foremost, Apple’s software designing department has completely focused on the software to make it more user-friendly and enhance the usability rather than improvising the hardware configurations. The second most important thing to consider is that even though the iPhone 5 has been stylishly designed, making it a Smartphone of its own class, still it happens to be a mix of two extremes as there are several positive as well as negative points that simply cannot be set aside.

Considering the specs, most users fail to realize what the Smartphone must be worth. It happens to be the lightest among most of the hottest gadgets around simply being 112g whereas the Apple’s iPhone 4S weighted 140g and the Galaxy SIII weighs 133g. Another vital aspect to take into account is that the device is quite thinner, and that’s only 7.6mm whereas the Galaxy SIII s 8.6mm, the iPhone 4S was 9.3mm, and the HTC one X is 8.9mm thick, which makes it pretty easy to hold and use the iPhone 5.

The design and body must have been one of the primary matters of interest and for this reason, when mostly gadgets are available with bigger screen sizes such as 4.3 or 4.5, Apple iPhone 5 has a ravishing 4” screen. Its pretty fine slightly capacitive backlit TFT touchscreen with 640 x 1136 pixels with Apple oleophobic coatings and Corning Gorilla Glass.

Like other Apple devices, iPhone 5 also does not support external memory option, and the users are provided with the options of choosing from 16, 32, and 64 GB inbuilt storage capacities. The iPhone 5 supports the new A6 processors which is quite smaller in size, drains lesser battery, better is speed as compared to the prior versions from Apple. The operating system was very much anticipated, the iOS 6 was launched a few months ago. Some other impressive features include the iCloud service, the Siri natural language support along with the iBooks reader. Compared to various gadgets out there, the iPhone 5 offers users with an incredible battery backup which is approximately 10 hours of music play, 8 hours of talk time and 225 hours of standby.

The negative sides of the gadget are equally there. Firstly, compared to all the hot Smartphones out there, the iPhone 5’s display isn’t much impressive. Moreover, it is not very understandable why Apple developers keep restricting the storage capacity whereas Smartphone users prefer more and more space which is useful for them to keep all their images, videos, music and a lot more right on the go! The camera, on the other hand, is nothing fancy when compared to the results of Nokia Lumia 920. Once again, it is pretty childish of Apple to come up with Smartphones that support only nano-SIM whereas most of the telecom carriers do not deliver such services, specially in the International market. The price again happens to be way overboard. Smartphones users fine HTC One X and Samsung SIII much more affordable compared to iPhone 5, which certainly isn’t cool for Apple.

The gadget certainly is reliable and a status symbol but when it comes performance and delivering extra that what users actually anticipates, the iPhone 5 from Apple doesn’t impress at all!

Timeline happens to be a name of a new profile layout for all the Facebook users that was initially only available to the beta developers and testers. The new layout was applicable to users at the end of 2011 as an optional feature that Facebook users had to enable manually. However, later on, there was a forced switch to the Timeline profile, most users never happened to like it and want to remove timeline.

Some users even did not switch, and one day when they signed in, they received an official message from Facebook stating ‘Dear User, you have been switched to Facebook Timeline’. Now, Timeline enables users to enjoy some of the most exciting features, and make you illustrate your entire life in a graphical manner since the day you have signed up for Facebook.

That’s the positive side of Facebook Timeline, now the opposite one is mentioned below.

As there are others who like the Timeline feature, whereas some users totally hate it, and never want to sign up for it unless they are forced to switch. But, there is a solution to everything!!

I recently came across the same issue, and I don’t find myself liking the new Facebook profile layout at all. So, here you go with the easiest approach on how to remove or disable Timeline from your Facebook profile. This technique works in Google Chrome, FireFox, Safari and Internet Explorer which are the three major Web browsers.

  • First and foremost, you need browse through google.com
  • In the browser, type in timelineremove.com in the address bar.
  • You will get to the particular page
  • As you scroll down, you will see different browsers, and you will see the one highlighted and that would be the one you are currently accessing.
  • You are only required to click on the highlighted icon, and it will lead you to an app/file download.
  • Click on the Install button, And, the extension will be installed on your browser
  • Once installed, you will see the extension icon on your browser
  • As you click on the icon, it will either show a green mark with a message as ‘Timeline Removed’
  • Now, go back to your timeline profile and click on the extension icon. If it shows the green mark, then it means you can easily remove / disable the timeline profile layout.
  • You must refresh your page and check the extension icon, as it shows green, you have successfully disabled Facebook Timeline layout and have reverted to the old profile on Facebook.

That’s pretty nice and clean!

However, someday you really change your mind and want to opt for the Timeline layout, you need to click on the extensions green mark, it will turn into a cross, refresh your page, and there you go with the Timeline layout on your profile !

The Facebook’s IPO happens to be one of the most eagerly awaited events in the industry. As I have seen, very few companies have been able to accomplish what has been done by the Apple Corporation in the last few years.

what I mean to say here is that there is an extremely high probability that Facebook is going to beat down Apple when it comes to the ROI (Return on Investment) as well a that Facebook – the social media giant stock purchases in the Initial Public Offering perhaps beats the return on Apple over the next 4 years.

Let me have a comparison of both of these:

Recreation

Often a unique set of certain events leads to the birth of an enterprise in such a manner that it can never ever be recreated. The biggest example we have with us is Facebook. Given any amount of money and talent, Facebook is something that cannot be recreated at all.

Google, on the other hand has tried its best and came up with Google+. It has both the money as well as the talent and Google+ is good enough. In most of the analysis, the reports states that the entire design and user-interface of Google+ is a lot better than what Facebook offers in several respects.

 

As Google has predominance when it comes to search engines, there is a considerable incentive for all such users who prefer showing up in the Google searches and for this reason they need to be an active user on Google+. However, Facebook is never able to meet up to this particular incentive. Such a feature has really helped Google+ to attract more than 125 million users in an extremely short span of time.

Apple itself is unique in its own ways but not when it is about the recreational aspect. Samsung is the leading brand that is simply nipping on the Apple heals. There are numerous competitors that are fully capable of manufacturing what Apply is offering to its users, and in the near future they will be on par as compared to Apple in the near future.  Apple needs to play this game a lot faster in comparison to its competitors so that they cannot catch up.

The conclusion here is that Apple does not support the unique advantage as Facebook does. In the recreational aspect, Facebook makes Apple lose. Facebook is the Winner!

Windows 8 – Is It Going to Succeed?

Posted: 31st March 2012 by Sarah Aslam in Technology

Windows may not turn out to be the most superior application program in the market. On the other hand, if you get to come across the operating system statistics, one point is very much clear. 80% to 90% of the computer users make use of Windows operating systems in their machines. windows 8

The application program supports a large number of hardware models, offering a user-friendly and simple platform to work with and also available within a reasonable price range. These aspects have turned out to be one of the key factors when it comes to the success and achievement of Windows.
With the advancements in the field of Information and Technology, there are more software and hardware challenges in the market where Microsoft Corporation needs to prove with a solid and robust solution.

Two-time CEO as well as the co-founder Apple Corporation, Steve Jobs has offered his resignation to the company’s board of directors.

He has been suffering from poor health for quite some time. Back in January 2011, he took a medical leave from the company. He came back to the public spotlight in the month of March on the Launch of iPad 2.

He believes he is not enjoying a good health and as a result he will not be able to perform the duties of Apple’s CEO; however, he has recommended the name of Tim Cook as Apple’s new CEO.

He further stated that Apple’s most innovative and brightest days are ahead of it and he would be looking forward to contributing and watching the success in a totally new role. He truly was being thankful to all his associates and friends at Apple Corporation.

Cutting long story short, the guy isn’t doing well and certainly is not coming back to the company which has made this a sad day for the company as well as its fans all around the globe.

That reaches the figure of about one trillion.

Coming to the stats, Google’s DoubleClick Ad Planner states that Facebook has got more than 870 million unique users. These figures certainly make it the leading web portals when it comes to broad reach of Internet users.

The YouTube service by Google is ranked second while having 790 million unique users and100 billion page views.

The Google Ad Planner services does not measure portals such as Google Search but measure only web portals by their domains rather than the company on the whole.
