The Best Wearable Gadgets

The Best Wearable Gadgets

Whether it’s a top 5 or a top 10 list, every year starts out with something to look forward to. 2014 promises to be an exciting year for new consumer gadgets, not so much from new technologies, but from years of evolving into something that either puts you ahead of the crowd or be the talk of the party. Take a look at what you can expect over the next 12 months.

(1) Wearable Technology

Samsung made technology headlines in 2013 when it released its consumer Galaxy Gear brand of smartphone wristwatch last September. It had earlier tested the waters with Sony to release wearable wristwatch cellphones and while it has yet to win market following, the idea of a communicator used by Dick Tracy or in Star Trek movies remains a promising consumer product. Apple might just be sitting on the fence to have a similar product deriving from its smartphone market leadership. The Apple iWatch has been in the rumor mill for some time now. Will it be released in 2014?

Another is the Google Glass rumored to be released since 2012. Several companies already market entertainment gadgets in the “wearable eyeglass” format especially with 3D imaging technology enjoying a growing market following. Google Glass is said to allow the wearer interact with the web, take pictures from its in-built camera, and may include Augmented Reality features using voice-activated commands. There is no certainty any of these will reach mass production prices, but if they start appearing on specialty stores this year, expect to be the talk of the party wearing one in the next 12-18 months after they get released.

(2) 4K Television

Once in a while, a breakthrough in home entertainment creates a fanfare that is difficult to ignore. You had the DVD in 1997 and the High-Definition Blu-ray in 2003. With the last 2 CES in Vegas featuring 4k television sets (that’s twice the current 1920x 1080 resolution of HDTV), 2014 promises to be the year when 4K or Ultra HD television starts to pick up steam. Prices are expected to be high and could easily carve an upscale niche for the rich and famous wanting only the finest in home entertainment.

(3) Apple TV

Another online rumor subject since 2012, and fueled by no less than the late Steve Jobs who had successfully sent fears among giant HDTV makers in Korea and Japan, the Apple TV could well be a reality in 2014. Promising a level of computer operations powered by the iOS that allows for seamless integration with your iPad, iPhone and Mac applications and games, this large screen format Apple TV is expected to be head and shoulders above what the best HDTVs today offer in terms of functionality and convenience. If it appears this year, expect only the rich and famous, and moneyed Apple fans to afford it.

(4) iPhone 6

Every year, it has become a sort of commercial tradition to expect the Cupertino maverick to release an upgrade of the now iconic iPhone. Two years is the average waiting time for the next iteration and with the last iPhone 5 released in September 2012 and the iPhone 4 in 2010. Apple fans expect 2014 to see a new iPhone 6 released towards the end of the 3rd quarter, now that the iOS 7 has already been released.

(5) Electric Cars

Those hybrid car models have proven to be a commercial success for the likes of Toyota. Gas companies may not it, but it is clear that the trend to a more environment-friendly road experience has taken roots. With charging stations increasing across the country, expect more affordable electric cars to come out of the big car makers.

Except for those that are new applications of mature technologies, there won’t be many that the masses can readily afford. It may take another 2-3 years before their prices of 4k TVs and wearable gadgets to go down. In the meantime, anyone seen to own these gadgets will surely turn heads and be the center of attention in any gathering, whether at the mall or in a party. Enjoy the short-term exclusivity while it lasts.

In The Dating´s World A good Profile Makes All The Difference

In The Dating´s World A good Profile Makes All The Difference

Your personal dating profile is your personal tool of promotion and it can decide whether you are contacted by people or not. If you are able to get your dating profile right, you can have an amazing virtual dating experience. However, if your profile is not written the way it is supposed to, your overall experience could be frustrating and annoying. This is the reason why it is important for you to write your online dating profile of good quality. You will not only have more people contacting you, the people who will contact you will be of better quality.

Do you really know what are you looking for?

The answer to this question may seem pretty easy to you but in reality it is not. Go around and ask as many people as you can and the only answer they will come up with is that they want to create online profile because they want to date. This is a very generic answer and if you are on a dating site it is pretty obvious that you are there to find the date. The trick is in creating a profile which is very specific to your needs and preferences. Being specific will not only make it easy for others to find you, it will also be more attractive. So start by making a note of all the things you want or prefer. For instance, determine what kind of relationship you are looking for; whether it is short term, serious long term or perhaps marriage. You should also mention the age group you are okay dating. You can also specify whether you are okay with having children.

Be very clear about your ‘must haves’ and ‘must not haves’

The most important thing in any relationship is compatibility. If you get into a relationship without knowing the other person, it might cause trouble later. However, if you are able to clear most of the things about each other, it will help in a long term relationship. Therefore, it will be a good idea to clearly specify the things that the other person must have in him or with him (if it is something physical.) The must have is something that you will not be able to do without. There are things you would prefer but if the other person doesn’t have it, you will still be able to get by. Do mention such things as well. The last are the things you can’t stand and they are a strict no. They should also be mentioned in your profile.

Choose an easy to remember screen-name

While choosing a screen-name don’t make it too complicated. Instead keep it simple and attractive so that it is easy to remember and recall. It is always better to have a screen-name which reflects your personality traits and uniqueness. A short and sweet screen-name will do the trick.

To conclude, your dating profile must be specific and descriptive. But you also need to make sure that it does not become over detailed and boring. Strike a good balance, choose a quirky screen-name and upload a nice profile picture. Once you have all this, you will get a lot of visitors.
