What are the Expected Features of iPhone 6?

What are the Expected Features of iPhone 6?

The iPhone 6 is rumored to come out in the fall of 2013. This latest iPhone should be an improvement over the iPhone 5 and give Apple enthusiasts the opportunity to find even more to love about the company. Some of these features are only rumors and have not been confirmed by Apple. This is supposed to be the rumored budget iPhone that should make the phone more affordable to consumers. It may be the phone that you were waiting for. If you are on the market for a new phone, you may want to wait until this model is released in the fall to get a new one.

Kill Switch

When you lose your cell phone, it is a pain to have to rebuild all of your contact information. When you lose your smart phone, you run a greater risk of identify theft through the private information being found on your phone. The kill switch would allow you to turn off the phone and lock out any users remotely. It will also feature a GPS feature that will allow you to track its location and find it. This is a great feature that makes it a lot easier to control your phone and helps make the information on your phone more secure. This is a feature that many users have been wanting for a long time, and it looks like Apple will finally be able to provide it.

New Icons

Although this is not a real feature, the new icons may change the way you view Apple. This has been confirmed with beta testers. The icons will change the way that your welcome screen and other programs look on your phone. The reviews on the new icons are mixed. They are flatter in appearance, but designers are complaining that the shading is off in the program. Additionally, the icons are not yet consistent across all of the Apple products.

Transparency Feature

If you love to multi-task, you will love the new transparency feature that is rumored to be coming to the iPhone. This will allow you to work on one task while seeing through that program to whatever you were doing before. This will allow you to check your mail or texts quickly without interrupting your videos or other programs. It can make it easier to manage the multi-tasking you may face. This will make switching back and forth between programs much easier for most users.

Budget iPhone

The Budget iPhone is one the terms being used to describe the latest iPhone release in the fall. Apple is working to build a more affordable model that will make it easier for people to purchase it. The dummies and pictures on the Internet show that the iPhone is made of plastic instead of metal. In order save on costs, the resulting iPhone is a bit thicker than the iPhone 5. However, the savings may well be worth the different design. The model is being compared to that of the iPod touch and should still appeal to most Apple users.

Increased Speed

One promised feature of the new iPhone is that it will have increased speed over the older models. With data plan speeds picking up and the ability to do more and more with the apps available, speed is becoming an important feature when looking for a phone. The iPhone 6 should deliver the type of speed you need to easily open new apps and to perform a variety of functions. If you want to upgrade just to gain more speed, this new iPhone will make the expense worth it.

8 Replacements for Google Notebook

8 Replacements for Google Notebook

Exploring alternatives to Google Notebook? There are more than a few ‘notebooks’ available online these days, although choosing the right one will likely depend on just what you use Google Notebook for.

  1. Zoho Notebook
    If you want to stick with something as close to Google Notebook as possible, Zoho Notebook may just be your best bet. The user interface has some significant changes, but in general, Zoho Notebook has pretty similar features. There is even a Firefox plugin that allows you to highlight content and drop it into your Notebook. You can go a bit further, though, dropping in any spreadsheets or documents you have in Zoho, as well as some applications and all websites — to the point that you can control a desktop remotely if you pare it with something like Zoho Meeting.
  2. Evernote
    The features that Evernote brings to the table are pretty great. In addition to allowing you to capture parts of a website, Evernote has a desktop search tool mobil versions (iPhone and Windows Mobile). It even has an API, if you’ve got any features in mind not currently available. Evernote offers 40 MB for free accounts — if you’ll need more, the premium version is priced at $5 per month or $45 per year. Encryption, size and whether you’ll see ads seem to be the main differences between the free and premium versions.
  3. Net Notes
    If the major allure for Google Notebooks lays in the Firefox extension, Net Notes might be a good alternative. It’s a Firefox extension that allows you to save notes on websites in your bookmarks. You can toggle the Net Notes sidebar and access your notes as you browse. You can also tag websites. Net Notes works with Mozilla Weave if you need to access your notes from multiple computers.
  4. i-Lighter
    You can highlight and save information from any website while you’re browsing with i-Lighter. You can also add notes to your i-Lighted information, as well as email it or send the information to be posted to your blog or Twitter account. Your notes are saved in a notebook on your computer — but they’re also synchronized to the iLighter website. You can log in to the site from any computer.
  5. Clipmarks
    For those browsers interested in sharing what they find with others, Clipmarks provides a tool to select clips of text, images and video and share them with friends. You can easily syndicate your finds to a whole list of sites such as Facebook, Twitter and Digg. You can also easily review your past clips and use them as references through Clipmarks’ website.
  6. UberNote
    If you can think of a way to send notes to UberNote, it can handle it. You can clip material while browsing, email, IM, text message or even visit the UberNote sites to add notes to the information you have saved. You can organize your notes, tag them and even add checkboxes if you want to turn a note into some sort of task list. You can drag and drop information between notes in order to manage them.
  7. iLeonardo
    iLeonardo treats research as a social concern. You can create a notebook on iLeonardo on a particular topic, collecting information online. You can also access other people’s notebooks. It may not necessarily take the place of Google Notebook — I’m pretty sure my notes on some subjects are cryptic — but it’s a pretty cool tool. You can keep notebooks private if you like the interface but don’t want to share a particular project. iLeonardo does allow you to follow fellow notetakers and receive the information they find on a particular topic.
  8. Zotero
    Another Firefox extension, Zotero started life as a citation management tool targeted towards academic researchers. However, it offers notetaking tools, as well as a way to save files to your notebook. If you do a lot of writing in Microsoft Word or Open Office, Zotero might be the tool for you — it’s integrated with both word processing software to allow you to easily move your notes over, as well as several blogging options. Zotero’s interface is also available in more than 30 languages.

I’ve been relying on Google Notebook as a catch-all for blog post ideas — being able to just highlight information and save it is a great tool for a blogger.

In replacing it, though, I’m starting to lean towards Evernote. I’ve found it handles pretty much everything I want, especially with the voice recording feature. I’m planning to keep trying things out for a while yet — I’m sticking with Google Notebook until the Firefox extension quits working — and if you have any recommendations that I missed when I put together this list, I’d love to hear them — just leave a comment!
