iPhone vs BlackBerry – which one to choose?


Voting is now closed.

The iPhone was the clear winner, but not as far out in front as I was expecting.

Iphone 58.62%

BlackBerry 41.38%

There are plenty of smartphones, but only two celebrities. Like other big celebs, they go by one name: Blackberry and iPhone.

Oh sure, there’s the HTC powered by Google’s Android mobile OS. Palm is back in the game with the Pre. Nokia is a force to be reckoned with in most of the world. But, with the enterprise business pretty much sewn up by Research in Motion and consumers snapping up Apple handsets like there is no tomorrow, there is really only one question: Which one would you choose?

Solar Panels

Solar Panel Information

Solar panels are one of the most effective renewable energy products currently available as they can provide you with between 50% and 70% of your domestic hot water. Solar panels or collectors are the main elements of a solar system.

Many people are still under the misconception that solar panels work solely from the direct heat from the sun’s rays, and therefore solar panels wouldn’t be feasible for use in the UK. However this is wrong, because solar panels actually also operate by diffusing light (as well as heat) from the sun using a special fluid (water and glycol) that is being circulated through the panel/collector.
The heat gained from this fluid is then transferred to the stored water via a coil/heat exchanger within the cylinder, thus providing substantial hot water for the home.

Kambala Concept Phone


Concept Phone

Don’t get so confused, the Kambala is a mobile phone that transforms to a earphone as well. Pop the center piece and the earpiece clip pings out; clip this to your ear, and you got a phone-earphone! Multilayered Polymer which hosts all the electronic components is used in its construction. A continuous flexi-screen with plenty of sensors makeup the surface and it has the ability to transmit the image on the inside of the phone to the outside. It even does a chameleon act by blending in with your skin tone when you clip it to your ear.

The different new technology being placed in cars today.


With time, the new technology updated in cars changes quickly in order to make car driving safe and comfortable for the car owners. Owing to this, the price range of cars has increased drastically over the years making some cars very expensive.

Some new technologies installed in the cars are,
● Navigation systems,
● Fuel Economy giving much more miles per litre of fuel,
● Hybrid Model,
● Safety features.

All of the above features can be seen in both cars.

Which one would you prefer to drive?
