MotoNav TN700 series is a new line of portable navigation device produced by Motorola. It seems probable that this is Motorola's answer to the unfavorable reviews of its MotoNav TN30 PND. Instead of releasing minor updates with fixes, it decided to challenge its competitors with a whole line of better researched and designed products.
TN765t has the distinction to be the first model in this new line. The PND design is retooled, the onscreen experience optimized with the menu screens and map merged into a slick and seamless interface. It is obvious that the TN765t is sporting a cinematic wide-screen display. Its 5.1-inch color LCD features an aspect ratio that is much wider than the 16:9 aspect ratio of other wide PNDs. It also has the advantage of taking up slightly less windshield space than other 5-inch devices, allowing a better view of the road ahead for the driver. The screen unsurprisingly comes with a matte finish to preserve visibility even under direct sunlight.
The MotoNav package ships with a windshield-mount car kit. The car kit incorporates an FM-traffic data receiver. One of the advantages offered by the TN765t's cradle is that it can draw power from the PND's internal battery, allowing it to be used without a 12-volt power connection for short trips. Other accessories include a 12-volt power cable, an adhesive dashboard mounting disc, a Micro-USB cable, and a multilingual user's guide.
The interface of the TN765t is pretty standard for a PND. There is a main map screen with info bar along the top edge and soft keys for voice command. There are additional left and right panels from beyond the edges of the screen, providing routing options and preferences and other information.
The MotoNav is able to download free traffic data for major highways when it is connected to its charging cradle. It is also worth mentioning that the TN765t has support for phone function integration through Bluetooth connectivity. Not only will you have better voice call and SMS experience while travelling, the integration also makes it possible for the system to fetch latest data for fuel prices, weather forecasts and flight status through your phone's voice connection and report the information to you.
The device performed reliably throughout testing. Some initially reported Bluetooth connection stability issue has apparently been fixed with a firmware update. However, the TN765t is also known to have trouble maintaining an accurate position representation when one is in urban cities surrounded by highrise buildings. Apart from this and some minor voice command recognition issues, we could safely conclude that the TN765t represents a markedly improved product by Motorola and is a serious threat to other PNDs out there.

The review today features the first Atom Netbook with a next-gen Nvidia Ion processor. Unfortunately, for whatever reasons, Asus EEE PC 1201PN is packed with a single-core Atom N450 CPU instead of the tried-and-tested package of dual-core atom processor in netbook. Even before we tested the netbook, we already have reservations about its processing power.
Nevertheless, let us be objective and look at the rest of the hardware in this little machine which initial price is expected to be about $500. Powered by 1.6 GHz Intel Atom N450, it has 2GB 667MHz DDR RAM, 250GB hard drive and 512MB Nvidia Ion graphic card. Display size is 12.1 inches. To be honest the specifications are quite good so much so that its capability does not differ much from a middle-range laptop. The curious question is this: isn't there a mismatch between its processing power and the decent graphic card?
Anyway, we do not have much to say about the overall design and the body of the netbook. It has pretty standard aluminium and black plastic look, comfortable keyboard. Its small LED-backlit 12.1-inch glossy LCS display could support a resolution of 1,366x768 pixels, suitable for modern web browsing and working with other applications and multimedia presentations. The Asus EEE PC 1201PN also comes with Bluetooth, not a norm among netbooks yet. HDMI is probably the thing you want to indulge in with this netbook which promises smooth 1080p playback of video files on an external HDTV thanks to the Nvidia graphic card. The 2GB RAM and a 250GB hard drive is not overly generous but are sufficient for the preinstalled Windows 7 Home Premium to perform reliably.
A review about netbook would not be complete without some words on the battery endurance. In a video playback battery drain test using a six-cell battery, the netbook ran for about 4 hours. There is no doubt that you can prolong or reduce the battery life depending on what tasks you perform. Keep to the essentials and it might just last up to 6 hours, sufficient for most outdoor trip at any one time without the battery charger.
Included with the netbook purchase is an industry-standard one year parts-and-labor warranty. That is as good guarantee as I could get for a $500 electronics. For self-repair and maintenance the Asus website is always available for FAQs, driver downloads, list of authorized service centers and latest news about your netbook.
Conclusion: This netbook does not offer anything that is not already in the market. Being the pioneer in offering an Atom Netbook with the next-gen Nvidia Ion graphic card, we would have expected a massive discount on the package to make it sell better. But what do we know about marketing? We are only sure that there are better things to look ahead to in the near future, something that comes with Nvidia Ion GPU and has much better overall performance.
At first glance, the new iPhone 4 looks nothing like its predecessors, the iPhone 2G, iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS which have kept basically the same external design. The new design and look is like a complete face-lift and we feel that is exactly what is needed by Apple to keep the euphoria about the world no. 1 best selling phone brand at a high. While some preferred the old look, others cannot help but to admire the beauty that is the iPhone 4. It has a more industrial and elegant feel, seems like every tiny spots on the device is crafted and polished to perfection by Apple.
For the more active or careless users, here is a good news. Apparently the face-lift does not only affect the look of the device, it is also superbly strengthened by ultra-strong scratch-resistant glass in front and at the back. We are pretty sure that it will take a lot more than a simple drop or bump to dent your beloved iPhone 4.
iPhone 4 comes in either 16GB or 32GB capacity. If we have to choose, we would definitely go with the 32GB unit, especially because we are tempted to view some high definition videos on the crystal clear screen and we need extra storage space to go with the improved 5MP camera. Other enhancements to the hardware include more powerful and faster CPU chip and 512MB RAM, double of what was available on iPhone 3GS. A longer lasting battery capacity, a VGA front camera, a flash for the back camera, a second microphone used to combat background noise while on calls and additional sensors are worth noting too.
Major improvement is also made to the device's display. Named "Retina Display", the screen is very detailed and clear with rich color. Another thing that immediately distinguishes your piece of gadget from other cheap imitations - iPhone 4 screen is visible in full sunlight and it performs decently in low light and at extreme viewing angles.
Next, no review on iPhone would be complete without covering about its software. iPhone 4 has a re-branded iPhone operating system (OS), the iOS 4. Some new features are available under this OS, namely smartphone multitasking, FaceTime video calling, folders and enhanced Mail support. Book lovers will be delighted with iBooks to help them download ebooks and facilitate transfer of them between Apple devices. Last but not least, the iMovie app enables users to quickly do video recording and editing, producing their own memorable movie clips.
There are a lot of things to look forward to in iPhone 4 which has just been released for sale. As it is, it is already head and shoulders above other Smartphone's in terms of software functions and usability. We are confident that within a few months' time, there will be many new advanced apps developed to fully utilize the capabilities of the device's hardware's. Keep yourself busy with these until another summer (and presumably another iPhone?).
There are not many smartphones that could command massive excitement around its launch since the annual iPhone release. However, HTC Evo 4G has been able to do just that. People are excited about the HTC smartphone which runs on Android and supports 4G connectivity.
Let us take a sneak peek at this new challenger in the highly competitive smartphone arena.
First, the overall design of the HTC Evo 4G. It is a relatively large phone, measuring 4.8 inches tall by 2.6 inches wide by 0.5 inch tick. The good news is that the engineers have rightly opted to keep it real thin, at least that way you could still call it sleek.
Users will probably be too mesmerized by the large and beautiful display to complain about the slightly large size of the device. It is an understandable sacrifice especially for people who use the device to view Web pages and read text. The device also has a built-in light sensor that will automatically adjust the backlight based on the ambient light, rendering the screen suitable for viewing in most environments save for very bright outdoor sunlight.
I don't think many will disagree if we were to say that the engineers place a lot of importance on the multimedia capability of HTC Evo 4G. It not only has a convenient Micro-USB port but also a Type D connecter HDMI port, making it easy for you to hook the phone up to your TV. When you don't have your TV handy though, you can always watch video and view photos right on the screen of the phone. The kickstand on back allows user to prop the phone up on a desk for a comfortable viewing experience.
The operating system of HTC Evo 4G is Android 2.1. Being the latest Android version, users not only have access to the standard Google services and Android apps but also advanced apps such as Google Maps with Navigation, live wallpapers and voice-to-text entry. We're also crossing our fingers, hoping that Sprint will announce Android 2.2 update which will have support for Flash 10.1 and other features.
The Evo has a front-facing 1.3 megapixel camera and a main 8-megapixel camera capable of shooting HD-quality video. There are plenty of apps to choose from in the Android Market. However, a few proprietary apps by HTC is thrown in for the users' benefits, such as the Peep Twitter client and Footprints (GPS). The Evo 4G provides 1GB of internal memory but you can insert external memory cards up to 32GB through the microSD expansion slot.
Powered by 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon QSD8650 processor and 512MB RAM, HTC Evo 4G performed reliably well under our test. It ships with a 1,500mAh lithium ion battery. As with most smartphone the battery life varies depending on usage and other factors. A casual test leads us to estimate 4-5.5 hours of talk time or heavy usage and 12 hours of standby time for the phone.
The iPad has to be one of the biggest gadget releases within the last decade and has almost certainly taken the gadget and electronics industry by storm. You can’t beat playing about with a new gadget but the iPad offers its users a completely different dimension.
You will never get bored when using the iPad just because it caters for everyone and has everything from games, videos, books, the internet and so much more. The iPad is very thin and pretty much weightless so travelling regularly with the iPad is so easy and possible. In the gadget industry you do get the odd ugly gadget but this sleek modern looking iPad is very simple and looks good on the eyes – so it’s not all looks but you also get a product that has everything you need.
There are already a variety of different iPads available to buy which is quite surprising seeing as it’s a brand new product, but these can range in colours, screen size, hard drive size and of course speed and technology. The only problem with the iPad is the fact it has no USB ports so this can be a very big problem if you’re looking to upload or transfer work from a different apple product.
If you are looking for something different than the boring desktop pc or something with just as many features as the regular laptop and more then the iPad is definitely for you! iPad with all the features it come with – its definitely isn’t cheap but I’d definitely say it is well worth the money you spend on it.
Proceed with caution. Search Engine Optimization isn’t an easy industry and requires a lot of time and hard work for your website to reap in any rewards. As an experienced web developer I have encountered working with SEO on a regular basis and all that hard work implementing SEO can go out the window if you lose motivation or don’t do something right. SEO is definitely more about trial and error and the more you get wrong at the start the less you will get wrong as you go along.
The following 5 tips won’t help you master SEO but they will definitely give you the chance to succeed.
- Your content is key – Make sure all of your content is well written in perfect English with no spelling errors because search engines determine your ranking with the quality of your content.
- Deep linking is vital – When you have quality content other websites and blogs will link to your website so then search engines will recognize the fact your content is being linked elsewhere therefore you will be ranked higher.
- Submitting your website is important – Submit your website or blog to as many blogs, directories, social networks and other means of submissions as possible. Search engines will take into account how many back links your website or blog has and rank you accordingly.
- Regularly update your website – Not only should all of your content be well written and unique but you should also spend time on a daily basis (if possible) to add and update more content on your site.
- Use different titles and meta tags – When creating new pages for your blog or website you should be creating new titles and using different keywords otherwise search engines may class your content as spam and you’ll not be ranked too well.
These tips won’t make you a SEO master overnight but if you are careful and implement these tips as much as possible you will get there one day!

Google chrome is undoubtedly a great innovation in the web world. It might need quite an effort and time to beat the robust and high-speed browser like Google chrome. Surprisingly the design of the user interface is one of the most loved ones in the internet browser arena. However, it requires certain minimum configuration to install Google chrome in a system for the browser to work properly. In case your home PC is an obsolete model or would you like to try your hands on some creativity, you can make the Firefox browser look like Google chrome.
The creativity and innovation of open source platforms are well known to the world. The Firefox community has developed themes that resemble Google chrome within a short span after the release of the legendary Google chrome. This Firefox extension named as Chromifox could make the Firefox browser appear as if it were the Google chrome browser. It works well on all operating systems including Windows, Linux, and Max OS X.
While this provides cute looks with its soft blue theme to the Firefox browser, you should also be aware that a few third party extensions might not function properly.
