Airpods Fall Short of Mark As Expected

Posted by on Dec 20, 2016 in Technology | Comments Off on Airpods Fall Short of Mark As Expected

Apple surprised the tech and gadget community when it declared that they are removing the headphone jack in its newest iPhone device, the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7+. The announcement got mixed reactions as a slew of wireless ear buds have already been introduced, and all failed to capture the eye of gadget enthusiasts. Some publications have gone out of their way to specifically warn consumers not to buy Airpods for reasons ranging to inferior Bluetooth audio quality to superior cabled Lightning headsets on market.

The Pros

The AirPods are in many ways foreseeable, and that includes Apple’s signature presentation. Inside the box is a small, and white charging case with all the AirPods tucked inside, some basic product instructions (although they practically operate themselves) and a standard issue USB to lightning charging cable. The AirPods’s charging case has a magnetic hold to keep it secure. The each AirPod holds firmly to their cradles because of its magnets. A multi-color LED shows the charging status of the airpod. Fresh out from the box, the buds will be ready to pair.airpods suck

The Apple Airpods, though especially made with the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7+ in mind, might be used with any gadget that has a Bluetooth. Compared to the contemporaries, the Apple AirPods clocked the quickest amount of time in connecting with a device. Not merely did it register the fastest time to connect with a device, requirements is also crisper in the iPhone 7 AirPods compared to other top wireless ear buds found in the market today.

The five-hour battery life of the Apple AirPod came as a good shock for its the gadget enthusiasts. Considering how small the AirPods will be, having five hours of continuous use is already much for Apple iPhone 7 review websites to give Apple’s cellular ear bud a positive mark.

On arrival, the AirPods are already in pairing mode. As you flip open the case, the AirPods will appear in your Phone’s Bluetooth menu with the name “AirPods.” Just choose this to connect, and the pairing is completed. If you are an iCloud user, all of your Apple devices ought to recognize the AirPods like a sound output option, and sound switches among them instantly. To force the AirPods into pairing mode for use with any non-Apple system, a small nearly invisible switch on the back of the recharging case will force the pairing mode when held down.

The Cons

It might have been easy for Apple to jam-pack as many functionalities as possible into the AirPods. Competitors have tried but it ended up not working out. Apple has demonstrated some restraint here and loaded the wireless buds with enough tech to make them quite interesting, yet easy to use.

The Apple AirPods would be the first truly wireless ear bud that works reliably. You are able to tap the outside of either AirPod to call Siri just as you would by hitting and holding the home key on an iPhone and she will be at your support. Don’t ask her to skip the song in your Spotify playlist, although she cannot help you there. If you want to do any track navigation, or have Siri pull-up your favorite tune, you will need to go through Apple music.

Apparently there can be quite a long lag period between requesting Siri to adjust the volume and ACTUALLY getting the volume adjusted, much to the annoyance of wearers as Gizmodo has explained in greater detail.

Siri can help you with any of the additional tasks you are used to depending on her for though. Ask her to set a reminder, set an alarm, place a contact to someone on your connections list, or to even adjust the volume of your music up or down. When receiving a phone call, Siri will announce this and a double-tap to either AirPod’s outer covering will answer the call.

Within the AirPods, accelerometers and other detectors determine when the buds have been inserted and pulled out from ear. This triggers a few energy and time saving measures. For instance, if you are listening to music and take out one AirPod, the music will pause until the removed AirPod is re-inserted.

At that point, the background music or podcast starts from where it stopped before removing it. If both AirPods are removed, the music stops completely and the AirPods go off, saving its battery. If the buds are replaced, they will power up and connect immediately.

Advantages And Disadvantages Of Technology

Posted by on Oct 8, 2016 in Technology | Comments Off on Advantages And Disadvantages Of Technology

Technology is ever-changing. Since the dawn of time, humankind strove to better itself, and it was primarily done through technology. Some might argue that it’s the best thing about us, some might argue that we are doomed because of it, but everything has its good and bad sides.

Ergo, the pros, and cons of technology:



1. Education

Education has never been easier. Information is only a few clicks away from us at any given moment. If we want to learn something, all we have to do is search google for it and surely we will find what we are looking for. However, not only can we self-educate, but there are thousands of credited online universities which you can finish from your home and get a degree.
The only problem with internet fact checking is that the information we find might not be accurate. For example, take Wikipedia. It’s a website which can be altered by anyone. Sure, most of the information we find will probably be legitimate, but if someone wanted to make you believe in something that’s not true, they could easily alter the page and make it seem like a good source of information.

2. Access

We’ve mentioned access to information in the education segment, but we haven’t pointed out just how important it is. Before the internet, or better yet, before a huge amount of population had gotten access to the internet people searched for information through books or by asking someone who knows. This process can take ages. Lots of research would be required just to find maybe one or two facts that interest you. If you never had to search for something manually, first through the library for appropriate books and then through the books themselves, you don’t realize just how fortunate you are for having access to the internet.

3. Networking and communication

This aspect of technology is maybe the most important one out there. By using the technology, we can now achieve something which took weeks in the previous centuries or fortune while only the landline telephones were active. We can now communicate with each other in real-time, without any latency from anywhere in the world, for free. That’s something people only dreamed about.

Also, it’s a great way of meeting new people. Social networks like Facebook or Twitter had such an amazing impact on civilization. Who knows how many friends you would’ve had now if you weren’t able to socialize via the internet.



1. Distraction

Despite having many benefits, the Internet can easily distract people nowadays and make them waste hours in reading or watching certain nonbeneficial contents as well as spend too much time on social networks. As much as it is good to a certain point, it’s bad when you cross the line. It’s fine to have some leisure activity online, watch some videos, chat with your friends, but these activities take a majority of people’s time, and it’s destroying their productibility and creativity.

2. Data Security

Anyone with high knowledge about computers, programming, internet can take advantage of you and steal some valuable information from you. It’s not as safe a place as you might think.
