Occasionally those rare times in our life come up where we become extremely busy and we’re not able to carry out our duties. Additionally, sometimes people feel like they just need a break from all the busy things in their life and they want to get away from it for a little bit. For people with an offline job, doing so might not be quite a huge deal. However, if you’re a blogger or webmaster, that’s a completely different story. Due to real life issues, I have had to stop blogging for nearly two weeks, and here’s the effects it had on my website.
We often require computers, be it office or home, for number of reasons. Hence you will find people often are surrounded by stuffs like Laptops, Smartphone’s, Palmtops and other type of wireless devices. However, the users want more flexibility; therefore the concept of wearable computers came into picture. This has led the designers and researchers to embark with number of opportunities to think of having wearable computers of wide range. These are the smaller devices which can be easily worn over the human body for a wide range of professionals as per their needs and requirements. Every profession has its own specialized device which will help the respective professional in aiding and augmenting his daily life at work.

It is believed by many people that the Kindle Fire has been a real competitor for Apple’s iPad since its release. In fact, although the iPad has had more sales for the first three quarters of 2011, Amazon’s newest Kindle has sold more in the final quarter of the year then the iPad has. The Kindle Fire sold many, many copies during the holidays this year, but should people have saved their money and instead bought an iPad? We here at TechPopper have had the opportunity to use both devices for a fair amount of time, and will be comparing based on three categories – hardware, software, and price.
Even though it is online, making a website is still a business. You still need to think like a business person, and having basic business knowledge helps. However, you don’t need to have taken any classes on business in order to be successful online. With that being said, it’s important to know the differences between online and offline business. Here are some key differences.

The iPhone is one of the best devices available in the market today. With the release of iPhone 4S, sales have considerably increased as more and more people are purchasing this revolutionary smart phone. Featuring state of the art technology with a dual core A5 Processor, the iPhone 4S provides cutting edge speeds and a beautiful 3.5 inches Retina Display. The camera has also been increased to 8MP, providing a sharper image and a greater picture resolution. Image quality has also been considerably increased. However, the reason why the iPhone is so popular is because of the gazillions of apps that are made for it. The App Store is the largest online application store, and it is fitting to say the least, as the iPhone is the world’s largest selling phone. Here are some of the best iPhone apps that you can download for yourself:
A couple months back, we wrote about a huge update for Facebook profiles called Timeline. It was first able to be accessed by developers in September, and was set for public release on October 4th. But October 4th has long passed and we have yet to see the timeline update, but that’s about to change.
One of my friends, Troy Gessner has offered to start writing for TechPopper.com. That means more articles for you to read. You can identify which posts he has written because it will say “posted by TroyGessner”. So far he has written an article about a windows phone versus an iPhone and a post about the dementia effect. This news does not mean I will write any less. It simply means there will be an extra writer cranking out articles for you guys.

Google. The most popular website out according to Alexa, which is not a surprise. Most people use Google’s search engine on a regular basis, you may have even found this website by Google. But Google is becoming much more then just a search engine like it was in it’s early stages. The company has branched out to many different technologies that we use in our everyday life, and many like myself believe that Google is gaining to much power.

Jailbreaking your iDevice allows you to do many things such as access hidden settings, install third party applications not approved my Apple’s app store, and tweak your device almost any way you see fit. Unfortunately, Apple doesn’t make it easy for users to jailbreak their iDevice.
