When purchasing your first camera the many bundles and accessories that a shop can offer can be daunting and confusing!
In this post I will run through the Essential first time camera Accessories for any camera!!
When you choose your camera it is important it suits your needs, meaning that if you are going to go to the odd family party and take some photo’s for yourself then you will be able to get away with a compact point and shoot.
However, if you are a more advanced camera user then you might want to purchase a Hybrid or SLR Camera, these range in price from £200 all the way up to £7000 for the Pro Photographer gear!
A memory card is Essential for storing photo’s that you have taken! Cameras do normally have built in storage but these normal only hold 2-5 Photo’s, which is not enough for a trip to the zoo or the beach!
SD Card storage ranges from 1GB to 64GB with costs ranging from card to card. As well as cost, speed varies from card to card. SD Cards have whats called Classes, Class 2 being the slowest and class 10 being the fastest, think of it as gears in your car, gear 2 is for slow speeds but higher gears equals more speed!
A great place to purchase SD cards and all kinds of storage media is: Memory Bits
No one wants to find out that there camera battery’s have died half way through a party or a day out, because of this an Extra camera battery is essential for a day out!
Apple has released iOS 7.1 in a beta form for developers only, and there are a few UI changes that are found in the release notes. Betas for .x updates aren’t new, iOS 6.1 saw a beta as well as 5.1 (which actually saw multiple), so an iOS 7.1 beta was well expected. But what is new? Besides a good amount of under the hood changes to miscellaneous frameworks and APIs, there are some new accessibility changes and some minor UI changes. iDownloadBlog put a preliminary list of changes up which can be found below:
instead of saying ‘No Missed Notifications,’ it now just says ‘No Notifications’ when NC is cleared.
new Yahoo logo is now present in NC, as well as Weather app
seems to be a number of bug fixes related to stability/performance
new ‘HDR Auto’ feature in the Camera app
new ‘Upload Burst Photos’ option in Settings app (Photos & Camera tab)
new ‘Use Dark Keyboard’ option in Settings app (Accessibility tab)
Also, after installing it on my personal device I was able to spot a few different changes as well:
Notification Center “Calendar” now has line indicating current time
Lock Screen non-simple passcode keyboard has changed
With Reduce motion turned on, multitasking now fades in instead of doing the zooming out/in effects
Other miscellaneous things pointed out across the internet include:
New animations for pinch to home screen on iPad
New accessibility options for “Reduce Transparency” and “Darken Colors” which cause the dock and folder backgrounds to turn a dark grey
The Flickr logo in Settings was changed to the current white version instead of the grey gradient from before
Notification Center’s X and Clear buttons are now larger and easier to press
Animations are slightly faster (see below)
As mentioned, animations appear to be ever so slightly faster. Below you can see my iPhone 5 (right) and iPhone 5s (left). The iPhone 5 is on iOS 7.0.4 and the iPhone 5s is on iOS 7.1 beta.
So far, that is all that I personally have been able to notice. Nothing too major, but changes nonetheless. If you are a developer, you can head on over to the Developer Center and download the beta for your respective device. According to iH8sn0w on Twitter, today’s beta expires on Monday, January 13, 2014.I will keep you posted as any other updates are found.
Nowadays, business people, SEO specialists, and even bloggers, have come to understand that it is important to optimize a website in order to gain any profit. This is because without SEO, there is no chance of appearing in the first pages of Google. The reason why appearing in the first pages of google is important is quite clear: it will help you attract organic traffic. Nevertheless, during the years, SEO and Google have changed a lot. First of all, it is more difficult to grow a website nowadays, because Google’s algorithms are doing all they can to eliminate spam, low-quality content and unethical practices. So which are the most pathetic SEO strategies that will bring nothing but misfortune? Let’s take a look:
- Guest-Posting for Links
It is true that guest-posting is the most effective way of creating high-quality back-links that will last forever, but this will only happen if you truly add value to the website that you are writing on. The whole point of guest-posting is to add value to a website, but if you send in duplicate content, or spun articles, chances are that you will either be ignored, or only be approved by low-quality sites. Maybe you are not looking forward to spending a lot of time with guest-posting, but you can’t change the way the internet works. Be patient with SEO, because it is not something that happens overnight.
- Using Black-Hat SEO Techniques
There are two ways of improving SEO. First, there is the ethical method, used by digitalnetagency.com and other companies, that takes a lot of time and effort. It is referred to as white hat SEO, and it is focused on guest-posting, high-quality content creation, blog commenting and social media outreach. On the other hand, we have black hat SEO practices which include keyword stuffing, cloaking, gateways, fake pages and many other things that you can’t even begin to imagine. While the second method is very fast, I guarantee that it is not viable on the long run, because Google’s algorithms will eventually find you, and punish you.
- Ignoring Social Media Platforms
We are the living witnesses to the social media revolution. These platforms which were developed for interaction, fun, communication and promoting businesses can no longer be ignored. They have become part of our lives, and most of us use them on a daily basis. It would be a shame to lose the tremendous opportunities that can be found on them. Whether you are promoting your eCommerce site, blog, or website, there is a way to help it grow faster on social media. Google loves social signals, and it is very important to harness the power of platforms like Facebook, Twitter or Google Plus.
Don’t believe all the stories you read about online, and don’t click the get rich schemes that claim that you can rank overnight or win a million dollars in a week (they are another example of unethical SEO strategies). It is impossible to win big without working hard. If you are prepared to invest time and effort in your website, constantly learn and abide Google’s rules you will see your website growing each and every day. All you need is patience and discipline.
A few Reasons Why You Should Use eBooks
There is no other constant in life other than change and while this may be exciting for some, it can leave the rest of us in a complicated situation. The situation where we have to make the decision of whether or not we move with the train or stay behind at the station and catch a later one. This was what happened to me when, in light of technological trends, books became obsolete and reading books online was the new “thing”. Because I was so in love with the smell of fresh printed paper and the feel of the pages in my hand, it took me a while to get used to gadgets like Kindle or The Nook.
But I did see the light eventually; when some things convinced me that I could still live in a world where books were no longer the norm. Portability was a key factor: accessing a book is possible via smartphone, laptop, tablet or other devices, so the carrying part is immediately removed from the equation.
I am also a calculated person. I know what two plus two is and I am aware of it at all times. So when I became aware of the fact that eBooks are available at sometimes half the price of normal books a light inside my head started blinking and the shift happened. I would be able to save up some much needed cash for other purposes like buying a bike- which was essential for me as a student, without having to sacrifice any academic advancement. Not a hard decision, I’ll tell you.
Searching every library known to man for specific books would also cease to be an issue because all the eBooks you can think of are available at a mere click of a mouse, and all for reasonable prices. There are countless online book stores that even offer discounts when buying a certain number of books, and be assured, there has yet been I book I could not find and purchase online.
For eco reasons, eBooks are also a buck well spent, because not only do they save reasonable amount of space, but they save countless lovely trees that would otherwise come to a swift demise in order to ensure my and your reading pleasures. Like guest posting services, they offer real quality with little to no money. You never have to wait for the next lot of books to arrive because they have already sold the last copy at the library and you can easily transport hundreds of books inside a device that weighs less than your water bottle. Now that is what I call efficiency.
Last but not least, for those of you who so fondly remember your grandfathers reading your favorite bedtime story in their hoarse voice every night before you went to bed, why not give the audio versions of eBooks a shot? You get the chance of educating yourself while listening to the most beautiful actor voices- and the best part, you can practice your foreign language skills since you find audio versions read by native speakers.
In fact, all technology has done is increase our comfort levels while reducing both the financial and the logistical burden students had with traditional books. So get your eBook today and see if it also is something you could give a go!

So, many of you may be wondering, just what is a SIM-only mobile contract and how is it different from a regular mobile phone contract? Well, we can start answering this question by focusing on just what is a SIM card to begin with? Well, SIM stands for Subscriber Identity Module and the SIM card is how your mobile phone provider tracks your data usage, your remaining minutes, and knows just how much to charge you at the end of each month. It is also how they give your phone its unique phone number and how it connects to your mobile phone provider’s network. Your SIM card is crucial to your phone’s proper functioning.
Ok, But SIM-Only Contracts?
Most mobile phones have a place somewhere inside the phone where your SIM card actually sits. In many cases you can remove this SIM card and replace it with another. This is essential in case the SIM card should ever become damaged. Most of the time your phone will only be compatible with the SIM cards from the provider from which you purchased your phone. However, with many mobile phones it may be possible to “unlock” it, which if done, allows your phone to work with the SIM cards of any mobile provider. This is useful because then you can switch your phone to whatever service you want. You can switch out your old SIM card with the SIM card of any provider at all.
Great, But How Is This Relevant To Me?
You can select whichever mobile provider you want, even if your phone isn’t a model that is typically offered by a particular mobile provider. Also, you can purchase a new plan without needing to buy a new mobile phone. Often, a lot of what you are paying for when you invest in a new plan is the cost of the new phone that comes with it. Mobile providers that offer SIM-only plans often steeply discount them because there’s no associated cost for providing you with brand new equipment. Even if you do decide to get a new phone, your mobile provider isn’t providing it for you so the discounts still apply. And because all you’re getting is the SIM card, it gives you the ultimate flexibility in choosing the mobile phone that’s right for you. There are a lot of reasons to invest in a SIM-only plan. You can keep your current phone if you want to, and if not, you get to select whichever phone you want with no restrictions on what you can have. Because your phone company isn’t providing your equipment either, they can afford to steeply discount your mobile plan because they don’t have to worry about covering the extra associated costs. If you are considering a SIM-only plan for yourself, I recommend you compare SIM-only contracts to find the best one for you depending on the minutes, texts and data allowance that you require. It will only take a few minutes and it may be the best thing you do. Author blurb: Laura Ginn is a professional writer and blogger.
