TechZone360 Week in Review

By

It seems like each and every week brings a head-spinning amount of news about the technology and telecommunications industry. That’s why it’s best to check out the top stories on TechZone360 to get a full-circle view of the top stories you need to know. Here are some of the highlights from the past week!

One big story this week addressed the possibility of a smaller iPad from Apple. Dubbed by some the “iPad Mini,” the rumored device will purportedly have a screen size of less than eight inches. This will put it in direct competition with tablets from Amazon and Google, but it might also hurt Apple itself. There is a possibility that this smaller iPad will erode the demand for the extremely popular 10-inch version of the device. If the iPad Mini is in fact released, it’ll be interesting to see if this is so.

Speaking of Apple, everyone knows that their devices support a wide variety of apps, and if you were interested in taking photos in any weather condition, well, there are apps for that. There’s the Photographer’s Ephemeris, which helps you know when the sun and moon will be in your landscape shots, and there’s also the Weather 2, which can tell you if weather conditions are ideal for outdoor photography. There’s also Camera Awesome, which “awesomizes” your images, and Pro HDR, which can help the high dynamic range of your shots.

In one final Apple-related story, point guard Deron Williams signed a five-year, $98 million contract to play point guard for the Brooklyn Nets. What does this have to do with technology? Williams used the SignNow app on his iPad to ink the contract. Next thing you know, he’ll be using an Angry Birds app to help him work out the best angles for shooting long-range jumpers!

Those stories just scratch the surface of what went down in the tech space this week. Check the TechZone360 homepage for more and come back each week to learn the latest and greatest!
