The 5 Best Alternatives to the IPhone 6

Compared to the IPhone 6, there are plenty of other phones I think you might want to take a look at. They used a better processor, it has a better camera, it has a much sharper picture and it has the aluminum casing that is nice. I do think there are some serious competitors in the race though, so here is some information about a few others. As of January of 2015, these were the top choices for their overall details in a smartphone.

Apple’s iPhone 6 is the smaller phone from the Iphone 6 plus, it has a 4.7 inch High Definition display screen with the new A8 processor, a 8 megapixel camera, a great aluminum body, a battery that last a long time, three different ways to store things, iOS 8, and other extras. It’s a nice for if you want a high end phone and don’t mind the price.


This is a great phone to look at; it has all the extras without the size and bulk and is the lightest of the IPhone. This was Apple’s big seller and the most popular phone two years ago. It might not be the IPhone 6, but it has plenty of extras and doesn’t have nearly the price. It comes with the newest, most updated iOS 8 and A7 processor and a great camera, there won’t be another update needed for a while and it only cost $99 for the 16gb version or $150 for 32gb. That is a really good price for a great Apple Iphone for those that don’t want to spend the big bucks. Even though this phone hasn’t really been in the spotlight since the Iphone 6 hit, the iPhone 5s is the closest thing to the Iphone 6. This phone is going to be around for a while.


The Sony Xperia Z3 is a very close competitor to the Iphone 6; this phone is at the top of the list as well. The design and the visual look of the phone has a classy look to it and it has some great software that runs the phone and a top of the line camera for great pictures. It is supposed to have the brightest screen out right now, is waterproof and comes with a top of the line processor that work quickly and a battery that lasts for two whole days. You can even play games from a Play Station 4 remotely from your phone. You can get this at a great price and is definitely worth looking at.


The new Moto X delivers a lot for the buck, some people say it’s the best phone out right now and very competitive to the iPhone 6. It has a new look, a great display screen, impressive software and camera to work with. It is almost the same phone as the Nexus with a few extras added on, a somewhat plain phone but a good phone none-the-less. You can get this phone rather inexpensively when you sign a two year contract his so that puts it in competition with the Iphone 6.


The LG G3 is one of the top, high-end Android phones out there right now; it offers high-level hardware, great software and it is very inexpensively priced. It has a large size Quad High Definition screen and a fast processor, a great camera and a long battery life. The LG G3 is the newest in the LG series and one of the best competitors against the iPhone 6 especially for the price. The LG G3 is now very inexpensive as they try to make it more competitive against the newest in Android phones.


This phone was picked as the best Android phone for 2014 and is the follow-up to the HTC One. It has a metal casing with an aluminum finish and the same notable design just like the IPhone 6, and it is now currently cheaper than the IPhone 6. It has a super-fast processor, and a duo camera and a brighter, sharper picture. It is 4G and has 32 megabyte storage with expansion room with an SD card, and 2 megabyte of Ram.

Why to Use Cloud-Based Services?

Cloud computing is one of the usual suspects on every year’s “trending technology” lists for years now and we would like to add, deservedly so. Beside the fact that it is very convenient and everybody uses it, whether they know that or not, what helped cloud computing to rise to such prominence is the strong embracement from business community. No wonder, considering that clouds are making huge shifts in the business landscape and helping various companies, especially the smaller ones and startups, to overcome common obstacles in the way it would be impossible not that long ago. So, it is evident that cloud-based services are “the big thing”, let us see why.

Ease of Access

Smart devices are becoming smarter and smarter as the time goes by and we won’t have to wait for too long until they catch up with our PCs. Cloud computing allows us to utilize this extraordinary advancement to its fullest extent. Ability to access, view and edit all the important documents through cloud, wherever you are and from whatever smart device you have on disposal, enables improved efficiency and better communication. With such foundations, increased productivity is the only logical outcome.

Already Developed Infrastructure

There is nothing suspicious about buying operating systems, new servers and all the applications that are necessary to keep in-house IT department ready and running, but why would you even bother if you can skip this completely and save some money in the process? Reliance on the already established cloud infrastructure becomes even more lucrative proposition when you are trying to scale your business up and extend it to the unexplored territory that demands additional investments in short time. If you however need to scale the business down, it is much easier to unsubscribe form some service than to get rid of all the unused equipment.

Easier Setup and Management

Whenever your IT staff gets some new and unfamiliar OS or the application it will face some, if even the slightest, learning curve. Why would you force them to do that on themselves when cloud providers have experienced personnel whose sole purpose is to support specific applications? In a recent conversation with the people who are providing managed services in Brisbane, we found out that this convenience plays a major part in dealing with ERP environment, which is notoriously hard to set up in-house. So, not only you are spared of getting all the hardware and software modules and making them work together; by using cloud services, you will be able to skip the maintenance process also.

More Features for Less Money

Cloud providers are earning money by providing their services for many different businesses so they are in dire need of expensive and cutting-edge hardware and ability to operate at highest possible level. This, however, doesn’t mean that your company has to invest equal amount of money to gain an access to similar level of performance. As a matter of fact, with cloud based services in the arsenal you can operate on optimal level with up to 20% less costs than you would have if you choose the other rout.

Flexible Storage Space

Last but not the least, storage space in the cloud environment is very elastic, meaning that you will able to expand it to whatever extent you need in a matter of seconds. Opposed to real-life hard drives that have limited functionality, demand replacement, file transfer and possibly complete OS overhaul, there is not even the slightest chance that you will face the message “Hard Drive is running out of space” on the cloud in any foreseeable future.
So, these are five ways how cloud based services can be beneficial for your business. Decisions will you utilize them and to what extent are only up to you. Take all the time you need, but be aware that if your competition is not yet on the cloud they are ready to jump the bandwagon. Why wait to be the last in line?

Why You Need A Gaming Mouse

Both enthusiast and professional gamers look for a gaming mouse that is designed to offer maximum performance at high speeds while being comfortable to use for so many hours every day.


Designed to meet gamers’ requirements

Whether you choose an optical or a laser mouse, wireless or wired, and even if you play games only as a hobby, a gaming mouse with an ergonomic and ambidextrous build, like the ones used by professional gamers, can help you improve your style, skills and times.

A design that is compact and sturdy is essential if the mouse is to withstand long gaming sessions. Using it for many hours per day, every day, also means that it should have a lightweight body and comfortable grip that does not strain your hand, and ideally, you should be able to identify each of the side buttons simply by touch; a natural build not only enhances comfort, but also shortens the time it takes to coordinate your eye with your hand. 

Quick reactions

Often times, fast mouse gestures can be detrimental to precision, so ideally you should look for a gaming mouse that provides both speed and accuracy at once. Optical sensors are great for superior tracking, but regardless of the type of mouse you choose, remember that sensor precision is key for achieving the utmost high speed performance.


Both left and right buttons should be reliable and respond quickly to your in-game commands. Most types of gaming mice can be customized to suit your gaming style, given that they are typically fitted with several buttons that are within easy reach and that can be re-programmed for easier game playing. For instance, you can assign to a specific button those actions for which you need to access the menu, and with a mouse of this type, you can stop wasting time and trigger the action with the push of a button. Note that setting up button triggers for specific menu actions requires the downloading of appropriate gaming software, so make sure to check product specifications carefully before making your purchase.

Going wireless

Mice can also be wireless and run on batteries, but make sure your gadget provides the same level of performance as a wired gaming mouse. In the case of a wireless mouse, it is best to choose one that has a wireless connection with a report rate of 2 milliseconds, and a battery life of several hundred hours but that maintains its accuracy throughout. With some models, you can even remove one of the batteries in those gaming situations where you need more balance or a lighter mouse.

Mouse pads

A quality gaming mouse offers speed due to its sensors that turn the movement of the mouse across the pad into cursor movement. This means that, for further accuracy, you will also need a mouse pad that is comfortable, stable, and ensures low surface friction so that you can move the mouse quickly across the pad, even with the slightest hand gesture.

Handibot – Why You Shouldn’t Miss This App Driven Power Tool?

Handibot is a powerful CNC tool. This portable tool is integrated with a software part as well, which can be run on any tablet or PC running Windows operating system. They have designed this as tomorrow’s smart tool. The app can be handled from a smartphone as well. This tool is perfect for DIY projects as well as professional work. Usually, CNC mills are not known as portable ones and this tool is an exception. The usual CNC mills are as huge as big trucks. To change this scenario, a company named ShopBot Tools has come up with small, portable CNC mills known as Handibot.

The basics

Let’s learn more about the Handibot. It is a three-axis mill that can be controlled using an app running on tablet, desktop computer or smartphone. How do you work with this tool? The first part is to design whatever you are planning to drill, cave or cut in the app. As stated before, they don’t function like the traditional CNC equipment. When it comes to the traditional big mills, you bring the material to the machine. Here in the case of Handibot, you can carry it to the material, wherever it is. Or in other words, you have lots of flexibility here. Material can be anything, be it wood, plastic, aluminum, etc. You can effortlessly carry it around to various places. This machine is still in its evolving stage and we’ll see some really cool designs in the future.

It’s a smart tool

If you ask me to put it simply, I would say it is a smart tool. This is a digitally-controlled new tool that is still evolving. You can use this power tool for a number of purposes, including drilling, carving, cutting and many other similar operations. We use industrial CNC tools everywhere and you are already familiar with this. CNC stands for Computer Numerically Controlled. Handibot is the same as a CNC mill; just that former one is portable and small.

The convenience

The convenience is the biggest aspect of this machine. You can use it wherever you want, be it on the floor, ceiling, the table, the wall, etc. The software will help you to accurately design your project. Also, it will ensure the precision in cutting, carving and drilling. Once you press the start button, you will have a smooth ride ahead. You can compare this machine to the “3D Cutter” or “3D Printer”. The Handibot is equipped to deal with all sorts of material including aluminum, plastics, wood, composites, foam, etc. The efficiency and precision are the biggest assets of this small machine. Also, the digital control gives it an altogether new edge.

The software

As we have stated before, the software is the most important aspect of this machine. Let’s see how you work with the software. You will need the apps specially designed for this machine. You can download the app needed for the specific task and install it on your smartphone, tablet or PC. After downloading and installing the app, you will be entering the settings of the app. Let’s take the simple example of cutting a hole of any size. There is an app available for this specific task. Here is how you will deal with this particular scenario. First, you will open the app on your device. Then you will enter the depth and diameter of the hole you intend to create. Then you select whether you want to cut through the material or pocket out the area.  And finally, you simply press the Load button. Now this information will be sent to your Handibot. You will position the material inside the Handibot and you will press the “Start” button. The machine will do the rest of the work. At the end, you will have the desired result with efficiency and precision.

The Capabilities Of The Machine

This machine has capable of doing incredible tasks. Be it complex shapes, curves, arcs or 3D forms, this machine will do a neat job. So this machine is equipped to do lots of special tasks. Repeatability and precision are big qualities of this machine. When it comes to the tasks, it can do unimaginable range of tasks. What will you do if you have a bigger work area? You can make use of the intelligent systems and jigs to register the tool on the larger work area.

Crowd funding

This project is growing bigger by the day. For the same reason, they have taken the route of crowd funding to ensure that this project reaches its potential. They opted for crowd funding mainly because of the fact that the software applications require bigger participation and expert input. The crowd funding was done on Kickstarter. The parent company is a small manufacturing company and they don’t have enough money to fulfill this dream project. They want to develop an efficient tool that has no limit. For that, they want to gather help from all quarters possible. As you can see, this project has a huge potential and they just need more funding and support to build it the way they envisioned. They are targeting a sum of $ 1,250,000 on the crowd funding platform.

The Vision For The Future

They have an excellent vision for the future of this amazing tool. They have used amazing engineering techniques to ensure that they have the best design possible for it. They plant to use the digital fabrication techniques extensively. Most of the parts are produced on digital fab equipment. They have used other CNC tools as well in fulfilling their vision. Or in simple words, you can produce the parts of a Handibot using another Handibot!  That suggests that this product is self-upgradable as well. However, for large scale production, they are planning to use larger CNCs. This is a unique machine with immense potential. You can carry it to your workplace as it is portable. Above all, the apps will give you immense freedom to design the parts in the way you want. All these factors make it must-have equipment for your job site or your DIY project.

How to choose mobile signal booster

The pace of life is increasing with each passing day. This increase means that people need to be reachable for the better part of twenty-four hours each day. As a result, there are very few places in the world where there is not at least some type of cell reception. Some areas are not as strong as others though and could use a mobile repeater.

These repeaters can be purchased on a large scale basis. A smaller size may also be purchased depending on what you need the device for. When searching for 
your next mobile signal booster, it may help to keep a few factors in mind.

While technology is something that many societies in the world cannot survive without, it is not always cheap. When searching for a mobile repeater it is important to keep cost in mind and set a budget before purchasing a system.

After setting a budget for the purchase, the next major decision to make is where the mobile repeater will be located. There are two places the repeater is typically placed. One is in a building such as an office or house. A repeater here could help you ensure there is a strong signal at your location.  In terms of a home, this means you the home owner can have a good signal wherever you happen to live including on top of a mountain. The second building that may need a repeater is an office building.

Besides a building, the other location where this technology can be useful for you is in a vehicle. If you drive long distance trucks or have an emergency vehicle it is important to always have cell access. This is why the repeaters are a good idea.


After choosing the location where the mobile repeater will be placed, it is time to choose the style. A desktop unit will be a good choice for office or home settings. Just make sure that it is placed high enough to have a clear a signal. It is also important for you to keep them away from other equipment that may interfere with its function.

If you are going to place the unit in a vehicle, you are going to need something smaller that is just as reliable. The first type available for vehicles is the cradle. This can serve two functions for you. It will boost your cell signal and give you a place to store your phone. The second style here is a small broadcast type station.

Regardless of the location or style of the system that you will be purchasing remember that you will need two pieces. The first is the base unit. The second is the antenna that will serve to boost and then broadcast the mobile signal.
