What is 5G and why is it important?
You might be enjoying or loving your wireless 4G service right now. In fact you might even be using it right now to connect to this website. But in the near future, namely 2017, 5G will fundamentally change what is possible to do with wireless internet. Besides some of the obvious benefits of having faster speed, what can we expect when Verizon & AT&T become the first carriers on the planet to offer 5G service to their customers? The first thing to know is that 5G will offer way connection speeds than 4G. Right now it takes between 75-100 milliseconds to connect your phone to an online server just to make a request for information. That means each time you're opening the mail app on your iPhone over a 4G network, it ...
Big money is about to flood the App Store
And nothing will be the same again. Monetizing a site can be done in a number of different ways, but monetizing a search engine can only be done in one way... stuff it with ads and paid searches. There was a time when Google used to be free and everything under the sun was searchable. Since science and advertising have taken their biggest ever leaps in history however, Google decided to open up something called Adwords. Thought Adwords users can now pay per clicks and competitors can blast your ads all day long to rip money out of your pockets and feed the great search engine giant. You might have even found our site by clicking on one of our Adwords listings for cell phone repair in Schaumburg. Apple is about ...
Apple TV is going to have a live access feature now.
The new feature is called "Live Tune-in" and it's designed to get you special access to live news and entertainment events. Part of Steve Job's vision was a more connected world that involves unifying users into a whole new platform or experience. The new Apple TV is designed to enhance usability and get users plugged in to share live events, like last night's democratic debates in New York for example. The TV will also be able to be used for things like Disney Entertainment and Apple also has the technology to allow streaming on multiple devices in the near future.
How do you use Live Tune In?
The controls are pretty easy. You just have to speak into your Siri remote and say "Watch CBS" or "Watch ESPN." Though other's have ...
Cell Phone Store Gets Robbed
We came across this random video on YouTube and we can't believe our eyes. We've seen so many different kinds of store break-ins caught on camera and even a few in cell phone stores. This one is especially crazy because *spoiler alert* the guy running the store gets into a wrestling match with the robber. You can see quickly at the beginning of the video that the robber pulls out a black bag onto the counter and appears to be instructing the man to quickly hurry up and fill the bag with iPhones or other valuables. They walk around the back for a while and it looks like the owner/representative points to the front of the store and points to the most value being there. They clear out most of the shelves on the left, stuffing ...

Apple's new iMac featuring FinFET
If you invested in nVidia at the beginning of this year, you've probably made a sizable return on your investment. The stock prices keep flying upwards to everyone's surprise for both Apple and nVidia. Now news has broken that nVidia is going to introduce never before seen graphics technology that will be the most dramatic upgrade for iMac graphics technology since 2011. The big deal is about nVidia's move to a smaller graphics processing architecture which will allow them to pack more of a punch, fit into smaller profiles, and reduce the amount of heat generated by the graphics processor. An article on Macrumors.com reported the partnership between Apple and nVidia for the new iMac graphics processor and based on this information, consumers can expect to see an even thinner body for the iMac. Better ...
iPhone 7 Curved Glass Screen
Just when it looked like Apple was going to innovate something new and exciting, they jumped into the curved glass screen market. Samsung made the biggest waves with their curved glass screens like we saw in the Galaxy Edge series of phones. According to an article on Macrumors.com, it looks like the 2017 iPhone is going to more closely resemble the iPhone 4 generation of phones. KGI Securities Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo reports that Apple is "Seeking to move away from the metal casing designs that are no longer unique, Apple will reportedly take the glass-backed design used for the iPhone 4 and 4s 'to the next level' in building the 2017 iPhone." A curved screen would dramatically affect the way companies perform iPhone repair in Hoffman Estates.
