The world of consumer electronic products gets more exciting by the day, but 2011 will shine as the year of the iPad and the Kindle, so it is no surprise that the two devices are competing with each other for the consumer’s vote.
Consumer Electronic Products
The I’s have it Apple, despite the loss of its leader, Steve Jobs, continued in its tradition of innovation. One of the most successful and popular products of all time, the iPad, was followed in March 2011 by the iPad2, a sleek, thin, lighter and even faster version of the iconic device. Apple addicts camped out in front of stores to get this version, and tens of millions of the iPad2 were sold.
Since too much of a good thing is never enough, Apple introduced the next iPad in March this year, but with one important innovation: a voice control system, known as Siri, that performs tasks and answers questions without the user having to type a search. It features powerful multitasking, improvements in mail features, and Game Center integration that offers the closest quality as possible to actual games systems.
The most innovative features of all must be the AirPrint and AirPlay features. These allow you to use your Wifi network to interface with certain printers and to certain T.Vs (Apple, of course.) What this means is that you can print directly from a number of apps on the iPad easily with properly configured printers and that if you are watching a video or listening to music on the iPad, you can switch the sound to one of Apple’s compatible speakers.
I’m on Fire
The incredible popularity of the Kindle was bound to stir the creative juices of its developers and spur them to further feats of technological strengths. The Kindle Fire is the first low cost device to threaten the throne of the iPad. Its real strengths lie in its low price (under $200) and it has access to the huge content library (18 million movies, TV shows, songs, magazines and books as well as the thousands of Kindle Fire apps) available from Amazon.
Its hardware competes with the iPad, in that it has a dual core processor and excellent screen resolution and a sensitive and responsive multi touch screen. It even has an email system, although a very bare bones one. Besides reading books and articles, you can enjoy movies and Netflix has released a new version that is specifically designed to run on the Kindle Fire. Kindle is like the baby sister or brother to the more powerful iPad, but at more than half the price, it still garners a lot of votes.
Consumer products are great for use in the workroom but if you want to give something expensive to an employee, you have to make sure they are reliable. This article will help you find background check services that you can use.
