New iMacs this Friday by Apple

They say great things come in small packages! Apple also had the same idea when they release their newer and slimmer versions of the all-new iMac! Once the computer goes on sale this Friday, Apple will also start taking orders for the larger version of the same. However, for the larger pieces, the shipping won’t happen until December so people will need to wait to get to own their pieces for good.

The smaller screen measures up to 21.5 inches while the soon to be introduced bigger model is said to have a 27 inch screen. The dimension in cm for the first one is approximately 54.6, and for the second one is 68.5. The difference of cost between the two sizes is about $500, with the smaller one costing $1,299 and the larger one, $1,799.

One of the USP’s of the new iMac is how incredibly thin it is. Phil Schiller, who is Apple’s senior vice president and is in charge of worldwide marketing of the product, demonstrated the slimness of the product in San Jose, California recently.

Since these new iMacs, which will be available for sale posts Friday have no disk drive, the thickness of the computer has been reduced to one-fifth of its original size! Beat that! However, towards the centre of the back, a slight bulge is noticed for those who peer closely.

What the new iMac also does is pins the computer’s components to the back of a large LCD screen. While these new models were revealed a month ago, they will only go on sale post Friday.

New Nokia Asha 205 and 206 – For those who want it cheap!

There are so many varieties of phones in the market, with thousands of handy apps, cool features, access to the whole world with fast internet, and amazing looks, off course who can forget one-touch-go display. But when you go out to buy one for yourself, you always keep in mind, the budget. No worries, as Nokia has thought about us & introduced its Nokia Asha 205 & 206 for people like you & me, who doesn’t want to finish their salaries in one go.

Nokia Asha 205 & 206 is designed for all the budget conscious mass, giving them the access to Facebook with a dedicated button. A new feature called slam that enables you to transfer & share data from your phone to any other phones. We know of the traditional way of sharing files & photos to any other mobile via Bluetooth, but Nokia has come up with the revolutionary instant sharing that happens without pairing the two devices. And the best part is, the receiving device doesn’t have to be slam-enabled phones.

It also includes latest version of Nokia Express browser, which is similar to the cloud-based servers. Teenagers will love it as it also comes with an electronic art gift pack of 40 free games, as well as preinstalled twitter & chat application like eBuddy.

Due to the similarity in features, to that of smartphones in the market, the Nokia Asha devices are termed as feature phones. Both the phones are to be released in the market by the year’s end. However, these phones are limited to those countries where Nokia doesn’t offer its windows phone because Asha phones are incompatible with Microsoft windows OS for phones. Therefore, the U.S will be deprived of its availability


Facebook’s external advertising network

As people say, if you are nowhere to be found, then you are on Facebook. Looking at the time you spend on Facebook and the activities that you do every day, like posting comments, liking posts, playing, news feeding, etc, Facebook gets a data about your likes & dislikes, based on which Facebook has come up with something new. As a part of the upcoming changes to Facebook’s privacy & governance policies, it has come up with an external advertising network, in which you will get ads outside of Facebook, using the same data it has about your likes & dislikes.

One can easily say that these are strategies, similar to previous ones with winning mobile & click-through ads, which generated enough revenue to make Wall Street & other investors happy. However, Facebook also came up with a voting process, as a way to improve its governance policies, which failed before it could actually get started.

Google with its Adsense is topping the charts when it comes to external ad network. But if Facebook manages to get such an external ad network then it could double their revenue, taking them to $10 billion from its current $5 billion level. To have the access to the information of the browsing & liking habits of a billion people isn’t something that comes along every day.

We have to wait & watch, if Facebook with its data is able to effectively target ads on external websites, then Google, with its multibillion dollar advertising business, which is dominating the ad world, may get the first major competitor. And if Facebook manages to achieve such a bench mark, then we may actually feel proud to have helped Facebook achieve something by doing nothing.


Apple using Harley Davidson Lightenening Trademark

Can you think of anything that relates big names as Apple & Harley-Davidson, off course, apart from them being a brand name?  The answer is the word Lightening. Now, how is the word lightening is related to these companies & how can this term become an interjection between the two? For the answer to this, you need to understand the term trademark. This is the term given to any word, name or symbol chosen by a company to represent itself.

Apple, wanted to use the term lightening, for branding its new product of dock connectors. However, before it could use the word for its product, the iPod maker had to talk to Harley Davidson, as it owns the trade mark for lightening in different areas, which includes video games motorcycle parts & even sunglasses. Therefore, Apple had to take the permission first, before it could use the name with its new product.

Harley Davidson has the trademark for the word lightening until 2013, so he granted ‘partial transfer’ of the trademark to Apple. This, not only enabled Apple to use the trademark freely, but retained the rights of Harley Davidson to use it for its other products. This arrangement will be valid till 2013, thereafter, according to the companies requirements, they may enter into any such terms or contract for its extension.

These kinds of ‘partial transfer’ of trademarks are granted by companies to any other companies, with prior permission, to ensure smooth relation & usage of rights being granted by the trademark protection acts & laws. Any violation of such law may be harmful for the company’s (violating the law) reputation & this may even lead to the end of such a company.
