New iPhone 4g: Rumors or Reality?

Considering that I traded my beloved BlackBerry Tour in for an iPhone 3G just a few weeks ago I am kind of upset and happy at the same time. I am happpy because I now have the phone I have always wanted since it came out but I am kind of upset because the iPhone 4G is rumored to be coming out this summer somtime in July.

The new iPhone rumors started after a guy found the concept iPhone in a bar in Redwood City. Compared to the iPhone 3G and 3GS it is significantly better and has many new features. It now has a front facing video chat camera,higher megapixel camera in the back,camera flash, improved display, and a larger battery just to name a few of the new attributes. The reason for believing that this is actually the new iPhone instead of it just being a rumor is because Apple connected John Gruber stated that Apple has indeed lost a prototpe iPhone and they want it back. The screen is another reason for believing that this is the new iPhone 4g because the screen resolution is much more higher than the newest iPhone the 3GS. Also the iPhone that is speculated to be the iPhone 4G runs on 4.0 operating system that is also higher the the 3GS.

I plan on getting this new iPhone soon as it comes out even though i just signed a two year contract two saturdays ago. I hope this phone is all it is mentioned to be because I really want it and am willing to pay full price for it whether it be 500 or 600 dollars. I believe it is much more than a rumor but just the way it was discovered is probably why people just believe it is a rumor, Apple should have announced the beginning process of coming out with a new iPhone before someone lost it in a bar. Hopefull the new iPhone 4G is a reality and not just a rumor!!

Smartphones... Cant live without them

Almost every one that is old enough and able to buy a cell phone has one. Most households to everyone just has a cell phone and no landline because that's how it is at my house. Cell phones have advanced so much from when they first came out you barely could do anything else with them but call, but now we practically live our lives through our cell phone because I can remember losing my cell phone a few times and also remembering how miserable I felt without it. Now cell phones allow you to text, browse the internet, check email, watch and record videos, its just so much that phones can do its almost unbelievable. We call these advanced phones Smartphones. There are many different types of Smartphones such as iPhones, HTC's and Blackberrys just to name a few.

Other features of Smartphones include expaned memory like for example the iPhone has different phone with either a 16 gig or 32 gig just for storing personal information. Gps is also another feature that is very helpful in the phones we use today because you can just use your phone to help navigate you on a road trip instead of buying a gps system for your car if it doesnt already come with one. In a few years i believe you will be able to see the person you are texting or holding a conversation with on the phone maybe by virtual images or something of that nature. With the way people use cell phones today i think we should just have a phone book with all cell phone numbers. My preference for Smartphones is the one that i have now and that would be a Blackberry. I have a Blackberry Tour, I havent had it for that long maybe only about four months now and I love my Tour. It just allows me to do so much stuff that you cant normally do on regualr phones like text multiple people at once and all my school and personal emails come right to my phone. My Blackberry is like a computer that fits in my pocket that i take with me everywhere i go. Smartphones are here to stay and they are only getting smarter which makes them even hareder to live without.

NBA Playoffs or NCAA Tournament?

NBA Playoffs or NCAA Tournament? It's your choice whichever one you like the best but both are very exciting. My choice would have to be the NCAA Tournament because i like to see upsets and they rarely ever happen in the NBA but they happen almost every year in the NCAA Tournament. The last time a team got upset in the NBA Playoffs was in 2007 when the last seeded Golden State Warriors beat the top seeded Dallas Mavericks in the first round of the playoffs in a seven game series. Their have been plenty off upsets this year in the college tournament because only one number one seed has made it to the Final Four. This year in the NCAA Tournament Kansas lost to the University of Northern Iowa a relatively small school compared to the competition and Syracuse lost to Butler. Those a just a few of the many upsets that have happened this year in the college tournament. Even though my choice is the NCAA over the NBA that doesnt mean that the NBA is a good game though. The NBA players are much more skilled and athletic so it makes for a much better game but when wathcing the NBA playoffs pretty much the best teams always win on a nightly basis, but when watching the college tournament you should expect the unexpected. So can it be that Butler will be our 2010 National Champions?
