Apple Tops Wireless Consumer Smartphone Customer Satisfaction

This article was sent to me and as you can see I am an “Apple” fan and have been for years. It is rather interesting especially if you are thinking of going the iPhone way. It may help you with your choice.

Apple iPhone won the J.D. Power & Associates 2011 “Wireless Consumer Smartphone Customer Satisfaction Study” . The smartphone has been a hit with consumers who have been snatching up iPhones in droves and the iPhone 4 features easy to use technology such as FaceTime which allows users to see each other when talking.

Cobra iRadar iRAD-100 Radar Detector for iPhone and iPod Touch

Do you want to know where the ‘Red Light’ camera’s are at intersections?

Well this is just the gadget, it is called Cobra iRadar iRAD-100 Radar Detector(IRAD)

I hate red light camera’s, I believe them to be totally intrusive, and just another Big Brother spying machine. They are everywhere unfortunately and we have to learn to live with them.

When I found out about this device I was so excited about it, I had to share it with you.
I must make it clear, that to run red lights is rather foolish but sometimes we do tend to misjudge and we get caught. Very painful for the wallet I have to say, so hopefully this device may help to prevent this pain.

Here is a list of the great things about it.

1. IRAD alerts drivers of on coming red light camera’s.
2. It is a high performance detector and detects all radar & laser guns currently in use.
3. 360 degree protection
4. iRadar app displays visual alerts from the detector on the iPhone
5. iPhone features also include view alert history on the radar map, alert logging of frequent speed trap activity, speedometer and compass.
6. IRAD reduces false alerts in City and Highways

This device sounds amazing.
The Cobra iRadar iRAD-100 Radar Detector can be bought on Amazon.com for $109.69 which is at least $10 -$20 cheaper than anywhere else that I have found. It has 4 star reviews also.
Keep in mind it is probably cheaper than a speeding ticket or a ticket for going through a red light.

10 Items Cheaper in 2011 Than 2010

1. Full-Size Digital SLR Camera

Price in 2010              $319

Price in 2011               $299

This camera is  great value. Point and shoot cameras are very popular and have caused the price of these heavier type cameras to be reduced.

2. Kindle

Price in 2010: $130

Price in 2011: $99

Because there is so much competition now in the retail market, the kindle price has dropped considerably.

3. HDTVs

Price in 2010: $699
Price in 2011: $599

 

The price for the 42″ and the 55″ HDTVs have been dropping for the last couple of years. The technology is getting better each year and the components cheaper. The price between the 42″ and the 55″ is very little so buyers lean towards the 55″. I expect the 42″ may be replaced by the 55″
4. Blu-Ray Player

Price in 2010: $50
Price in 2011: $39

 

Blue Ray is now being built into a number of tv’s and the price of the individual unit will probably come down. More than likely they will eventually become obsolete.
5. Wii System Bundles

Price in 2010: $150

Price in 2011: $99

 

There is so much competition out there with the Xbox, Sony Playstation and Microsoft knect is getting very popular. So the basic Wii becomes much cheaper as the demand drops.
6. 16GB SD Card

Price in 2010: $17
Price in 2011: $12

 

As memory cards get more powerful, the 16GB card just doesn’t stack up to the rest anymore. So the price is dropping significantly.
7. Portable GPS

Price in 2010: $45
Price in 2011: $40

 

Portable GPS is now built into cars or on phones and iPads, so basically they are becoming obsolete. $40 is about as low as they will probably get.
8. 15″, 16″ and 17″ Dual-Core Laptop

Price in 2010: $218,

Price in 2011: $199

As tablets are becoming more popular, computers are dropping in price.

It has been said that Tablets will replace the use of laptop because they are lighter and much more portable. Not so heavy to carry on the plane.

9. External 2TB USB Drives

Price in 2010: $90

Price in 2011: $50

 

“Technology is getting better and faster, and with all the things people are doing on computers, they need more storage, so this USB drive is less popular,” said Pinsker of dealnews.com.

 

10. iPhone 3GS

Price in 2010: $97
Price in 2011: $49

 

You can already find one from AT&T for this low price.

The iPhone 5 is reportedly coming out in April so the price of the old one of course comes down. Still a great phone and good price if you need one now.

This Could Be Your Next Wallet

Why does this not surprise me? My iPhone does everything but cook me breakfast, so to pay my bills seems like the obvious.

THIS Will Be Your Next Wallet
By John R. Quain

Are you ready to give up cash, and maybe even give up your credit cards? I’m not, but there are plenty of companies — from Google to AT&T — that think we will.

The idea has been around for more than 20 years but has never come to fruition, because the basic technological tools weren’t readily available. Now they are. They’re called smartphones.

Earlier this month, Google waved around a prototype Android phone with a special chip that lets customers pay simply by waving the phone near a cash register. Known as near-field communication (NFC), the trick is to use short-range radio signals to send your credit card or bank account information directly to a register so that you don’t have to swipe or sign for things. Or get your hands dirty with all that filthy lucre.
In one sense, such technology is overkill. Many of us can already wave a credit card at the gas pump or Quickie Mart and have a sale immediately rung up on the register. Credit card companies call it contactless payment. But contactless payments use a one-way system where your credit card info is simply passed from the card to the scanner. You don’t receive, say, any information about what you purchased or about what your current balance is on the card itself.
