iPhone 8 Launch Date and Details

With the much anticipated iPhone 8 being prepped to hit stores soon, I wanted to give an update on the projected launch date and my thoughts on the upcoming technological marvel. Apple has been forced to push the release date back at least October and possibly November, as they cited supply chain issues as the culprit. With much of their parts manufactured in China, some difficulty with the OLED panels has caused for production to be pushed back and in turn caused the release date to be pushed back as well.

With that being said, the new phone has been reported to have a few new innovations that would really entice users. The first of those is wireless charging which is something that has been very exciting for users since the new headphone adaptor was introduced on the iPhone 7. Wireless charging would allow for users to charge their phone up to 15 feet from the charger which would enable users to be a relative distance away from their charger and still listen to music through their headphones while with the 7 you were unable to do so without a pair of wireless headphones.

Apple also considered the possibility of “The Ultimate Accessory Connector”. This is what they had to say on the topic:

“Apple is also said to be working on another major innovation for the iPhone 8, with an entirely new type of connector set to appear in the iconic smartphone. The Ultimate Accessory Connector delivers an eight-pin connection, smaller and thinner than either USB-C or Lightning ports. The precise specifications and advantages of Ultimate Accessory connection are not known as of yet, but it will be interesting to see whether this indeed features in the iPhone 8, even if we may have to wait a little longer than usual in order to get our hands on this device”.

It looks like Apple is doing some very big things with the newest iPhone and it will be interesting to see how much of what they’ve proposed actually comes to fruition.




Ways to Lifestream the Super Bowl without cable

How to Live Stream Super Bowl 51 on Any Device, Even If You Don’t Have Cable

This idea is becoming so much more widespread as we see our lives turn to almost completely handheld. With so much at our fingertips through the internet, social media, and other streaming cites that there are a lot of people who don’t even pay for cable anymore. Instead they pay for Hulu, or Netflix, or whatever it may be to get any sort of program they would like.

You can also take any gaming console and stream it off of that, and as the video game industry grows bigger and bigger that option is becoming more and more attractive to a large population. Kids all over the world play Xbox and Playstation, and as long as you have an internet connection then you have the ability to watch the Super Bowl without having to pay for cable.

Taking all of that into consideration, I think we’re headed in a very negative direction for television companies and moreover for specific programs and networks. You’re taking away thousands of viewers from these stations which immediately takes money away from them. Now, on the flip side of the coin this is a huge bonus for the viewers. Not having to pay for cable and being able to watch or stream whatever you want for a minuscule percentage of what it would cost total.
