Reflection: TechOverMe

After several months of establishing this blog I can say that it’s been a success.I never really thought that one day I become a blogger, or even follow other blogs. Not only did I get to write about one of the things that I love the most, technology, but I learned what it truly means to write to a bigger audience. This was my first time I really had the opportunity to write to a big audience without limitations. I would definitely encourage others looking to write about something they care about through Social Media. The world is changing, and the way we receive our information is also changing. Do you remember the last time you read a newspaper? Rapidly, our lives will change and there will no longer be physical newspaper or magazines. Social Media is the newspaper of the future.

If i where to make my blog differently  i would have decided to try to get more followers to comment and read my weakly posts. This blog is not over so I still encourage people to read this! 🙂

Social Media’s Influence

For the past few days I have been thinking on the various uses and ways Social Media has impacted the internet, and especially  my blog. Without social  media, blog sites such as WordPress would not exist. It is important to understand that with the improvement in technology Social Media came to be something strong and powerful.

Not only does Social Media help spread information faster but allows people to connect to their interests and values through the web. TechOverMe was created to find a specific audience who’s interest is technology and the web. This is a very similar audience to the one Social Media has brought up for the past years.

This blog targets a similar audience as several Social Media programs, it also uses other Social Media sites to find and keep people updated.  People who are in the world of Social Media belong to several sites, interest groups, or fan clubs, and perhaps one day they will follow my blog.

Windows 8 Finally Out!

Microsoft’s vision for the future of computers builds a new world for Windows. It works well with a mouse and keyboard, and it’s great with touch screens. Believe it or not, it takes some time to get used to. Things don’t look the same. Windows’ new features include new application system and screen, sync, and real-time updates. Not only has Windows shown they have made a strong OS but Microsoft has also stated that they will be making new hardware to accompany W8.

Apple Maps, Really?

Today I want to talk about an issue that has been on the news lately. With the release of iPhone 5, Apple promised a new fully developed Maps navigation system, but unfortunately it failed to succeed. Apple decided to kick out Google Maps on its newest operating system iOS6 and replace it with its own app called Apple Maps. A nice idea but as many users have found out, there are quite a few bugs in it. The app not only lacks accuracy, but it fails to lead people to their final destination. This application came with the new iOS6, once updated there is no turning back! Current iPhone users: DO NOT update your phone if you need a map app that works.

iPhone 5! The reviews are in

Perhaps the most anticipated phone in 2012 has finally been fully revealed by Apple. Is it the best one out so far?  The iPhone 5 adds everything we wanted in the iPhone 4S: 4G LTE, a longer, larger screen, and a faster A6 processor. Plus, its top-to-bottom redesign is sharp, slim, and feather-light. We know everyone has been waiting for this review for months so lets gets to it.

The iPhone 5 completely rebuilds the iPhone on a framework of new features and design, addressing its major previous shortcomings. It’s absolutely the best iPhone to date, and it easily secures its place in the top tier of the smartphone universe. But will it compete with Samsung’s Galaxy III and Nokia’s Lumia 920?
