iPad Mini release date confirmed & Microsoft Surface price revealed

This is a big week for the tablet market, two new competitors were announced, well one, as usually Apple sent the media invitations but they don’t say what is about but we are 90% sure that is going to be the new iPad mini or nano. Microsoft on the other hand has announced the Surface RT price and they are ready to be pre-ordered.

The price of the Surface is quite a big surprise, 499 USD (the same as an iPad) and being honest, I can’t find what justify that big price. The Surface is bigger than the iPad (10.6 vs 9.7 inches) but it lacks on some points as for example the connectivity  Wifi only, and the big weak point is the screen resolution, it is a 147 ppi screen (the iPad has 265 ppi) which is just lame. Microsoft has announced the dead of Surface when they announced those prices. You can’t compete with the iPad if you have less things to offer than the iPad and definitely, you can’t put a 499 price tag on it. The so announced Touch Cover is going to cost an extra 100 USD so the model with the touch cover or the type cover will cost 599 USD.a

The rumors about the iPad mini are very strong but we know very little about it. We think the iPad mini will be as same as technological level as the iPad 2 but a little bit smaller and cheap. We are betting on a 299 USD price tag for the basic 16 GB version but we don’t know that yet, next week we will have the Apple presentation and the summary of it.

iPhone 5, Should I buy it?

Well let’s be really quick here for the answer, if you have an iPhone 4S the answer is that IS NOT WORTH IT, but if you don’t have and iPhone or do you own the iPhone 4 or 3GS yes, you should buy the iPhone 5, why and why not?.

Why not if you have the iPhone 4S?

Well…the change is not that big, I mean, getting another iPhone just for what Apple announced if you have the iPhone 4S is not very clever, let’s list here the things that Apple presented and we think is not a big advantage above the the iPhone 4S.

Hear Review: Improve your Mac’s or Windows PC sound!

The sound from our Mac may be good, but if you have a speakers set, a home theatre or a pair of high quality headphones you may be lacking the proper equalization to truly exploit all the potential those sound systems have. The easiest way to improve your computer’s sound is through a sound card, but they are not only expensive, but many times your computer is not compatible.

In OSX and Windows there is an easier (and cheaper) way to do it: Hear

Hear is a simple yet powerful application that allows you to fully customize all the audio coming from the computer, from equalizing and selecting volume base on decibels, to more complex things, like adding a 3D-effect to your music and sounds! This software is fully compatible with Mac OSX 10.5 /10.6 /10.7 /10.8 or Windows XP/Vista/7.
