  • Gadget Displays – LCDs, AMOLEDs and Retinas, oh my!

    High Definition, High Resolution, AMOLED, Super AMOLED, “Retina,” etc. These are the buzzwords electronics manufacturers throw around when marketing their new and improved phone, tablet or computer.

    But with consumer technology (especially mobile) growing and advancing every day, how can the average gadget fan keep up with the “latest and greatest.” How long until your HD Retina display iPad 3 becomes obsolete? How many patents will Apple have to secure before unveiling their newest tablet or phone? What must Samsung, Motorola and HTC do in order to keep Android devices in the race?

    Gone are the days where display is valued by size only. Now, true value is measured in pixels as well.  Sure, the technology behind your electronics matter; buyers are still concerned with processor speed, battery life and storage capabilities. But when the average consumer goes to the store looking to buy a new toy, they pick it up and play with it before reading the specs. The visual appeal of electronics comes first with many buyers.

    Under this line of thinking, display technology is the first line of defense when selling electronics. It’s never been as vital to protect phone, tablet and laptop displays in order to preserve the value of your expensive gizmos. Screen Protectors and clear protective Cell Phone Skins, Tablet Skins and Laptop Skins help protect these technologies from scratches and blemishes – protecting your investment.

    Let’s take a brief look into the different display classifications:

    LCD

    LCD screens produce very accurate colors and gray. The technology behind LCDs can consume battery power slightly faster, unless the manufacturer calibrates it to produce weaker shades of red and dark colors. Although, these displays maintain the same level of brightness and color for over thousands of hours.

    AMOLED

    AMOLED, Active Matrix Organic Light Emitting Diode, is an old yet new technology. AMOLED screens have been around for a while, but only recently made a surge in high-end consumer electronics. AMOLED screens are made of a thin layer of polymers which displays light when agitated by an electric current. Because it doesn’t require a backlight, these screens can produce deeper blacks and contrast. This also saved batter life.

    Retina Display

    How do you market a standout display in a market where every company claims that their HD is higher definition than the rest? Use and market a new brand name. Enter Apple’s “Retina Display.”

    Apple’s approach at creating the next wave in display technology was to simply out-do the rest of the market in terms of pixels per square inch. With the release of the newest MacBook Pro, Apple created computer screens that crammed in twice the pixels than that of a high-end HDTV. Apple claims their newest advancement in display technology has a high enough pixel density that the human eye is physically incapable of noticing pixilation at a typical viewing distance. Although, the term “typical viewing distance” is fluid depending on the size of your device, Apple’s approach at display technology is still king among the average consumer.

  • Protecting Your Technology: Top Laptop Disasters and How to Avoid Them

    Your laptop may be one of the most significant investments you’ll make in a long time. While MacBook skins may be great against scratches or blemishes, make sure you avoid these Top Laptop Killers, compiled by the Gartner Group:

    1. Drop while carrying.  Laptop skins cannot protect your notebook from crashing to the ground. One might argue that they can keep your laptop from slipping out of your hand, but let’s be real. In the end, a clear protective cover can’t defy gravity. Be sure to have a solid grip or carry it in a bag or other padded case.

    2. Fall off desk or surface while in use.  Are you sensing a theme here? Clear Skins are great against scratches and blemishes, but not so much against falls. Avoid clutter in your workspace and provide ample room for your technology to sit comfortably away from ledges.

    3. Object dropped on it.  Lighter objects like pens and pencils won’t do much damage, but drinks, books and keys may not play as nicely with your fragile little machine. Just be careful and avoid lifting heavy or sharp objects above your laptop.

    4. Normal wear and tear. Busy, bustling students on the way to class or commuting workers can bump or scratch their machines in any number of ways. Luckily, this is where a screen protector comes in really handy. Blemishes, dirt and dust are right in the wheelhouse of clear laptop covers and skins. Protect your investment without sacrificing usability.

    MacBook Screen Protectors and full body skins are specifically designed by model to protect your MacBook, MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, etc.

  • Happy Birthday, iPhone!

    Happy Birthday iPhone! Five years ago, you were introduced you to the world and the mere idea of your development was met with thunderous applause. Before you, your older brother iPod was the big dog on the block. It was the ultimate mobile device, replacing the long-standing reign of the Walkman and portable CD players. Just like big brother iPod, you changed the mobile technology world, to the point where multi-million dollar companies have copied off of some of your ingenuity in their own technology.

    You’ve done a lot over the last five years. It seems like just yesterday, Steve Jobs announced your release at the January 2007 MacWorld expo. You were boasted as being five years ahead of the game and five years later, you’ve generated over $150 billion in revenue. Along the way there were some stumbles: jailbreak softwares, antenna-gate, so on and so forth. But in the long run, it’s safe to say that you will be remembered as the game-changer that launched the early 21st century mobile boom.

    Let’s take a look back on memory lane and look at the iPhone that was and the iPhone that is now…

    iPhone The original iPhone debut in 2007. The concept combined the functions of an iPod with a revolutionary touchscreen display, a cellular phone, a digital camera and essentially a mini-personal computer. See: iPhone Skins

    iPhone 3G; iPhone 3GS The oldest version of iPhone still in production, the iPhone 3G boosted the speed and hardware of its predecessor. With twice the RAM and just under twice the processor speed, the iPhone 3G and 3GS answered many performance questions from original iPhone skeptics. See: iPhone 3G Skins

    iPhone 4; iPhone 4S And last, but certainly not least, today’s iPhone 4. The 8 megapixel camera, 1Ghz processor, AMOLED display and latest iOS make the iPhone 4 a giant in today’s super competitives mobile device market. The iPhone 4 combines the latest and greatest in design, display and functional technology, trademarks of the Apple brand.
