What to Expect for iPhone 5S?

So far, Apple introduced its iPhone – with one exception – in rhythm. The date for the phone would be accordingly revised October 2013. But this time, many expect an earlier date. Reason: Apple needs to catch up! Other smart phones are the current iPhone 5 superior in many respects.

That’s why many think we know: Apple will soon release a better equipped version called “iPhone 5S“. Even a more favorable cost-method no longer applies as excluded. First design studies and possible feature lists are already circulating on technology websites and blogs. So what will bring the iPhone allegedly coming?

Design

The iPhone is not only high-tech, but also fashion object. Therefore the unanimous opinion: the glass and metal materials mainly used to stay at the top iPhone series.
The rumors of a cheaper iPhone model will not tear nonetheless: conceivable that this model then gets a plastic housing. It would be nothing new: The iPhone models 3G and 3GS stuck in a plastic sleeve. As unlikely is a smaller iPhone. The iOS has not yet been prepared for this.

Display and Camera

It has long been a retina display at all the top smartphones the rule rather than the exception. Newer models can display full HD videos without scaling. IPhone coming from the fans at least expect that Apple will catch up. The dream of a bending-display or even a 3D holographic screen is probably still unfulfilled.
Tellingly are probably the speculations about the built-in camera: next iPhone model it should snap pictures with twelve megapixels – technically quite feasible.

Hardware

Samsung and Apple warring for months in court – yet Apple is still good Samsung customer when it comes to semiconductor chips. That could change with the next-generation iPhone. Rumor of Apple’s upcoming A7 chip will already be done – and no longer be produced by Samsung.

At interfaces and extensions Apple will probably maintain its course: As an extension, there is a USB port for the iPhone 5 although already – but what the Lightning interface to give up, though it can still make money with additional hardware?

Release Date

It’s true: The iPhone does not lead technologically far in all areas – yet it still sells better than any other smartphone. This success is not based on the weight of features, but the successful concept.

Therefore, Apple could still leave time with a new model quite well. And maybe that’s also wise: Finally, from an iPhone much more is expected than any other smartphone. Only technically catch up with competitors is not enough there.
But who knows, maybe Apple surprised not only with a premature date, but also a completely new iPhone concept.

In this guest post,  Ken Myers shares 5 websites where you can download professional stock photos for FREE! 

When it comes to your website you know that having visuals is a great way to catch people’s attention. As the vast majority of internet users are visually oriented, an image on your webpage can increase your traffic and draw attention to posts or places that you want visitors to click or read.

With that in mind you also do not want to spend a lot of money adding images to your website. However you do want professional looking pictures that amplify your website rather than make it look shabby.

Well, here are five great sites where you can find professional stock photography for free:

1. FreeDigitalPhotos

FreeDigitalPhotos is my absolute favorite site to get free stock photos. Everything on their site comes in a free version.

The small size which is around four hundred pixels wide is always free to download and use with an attribution. After that it is only a few dollars to upgrade the size or buy the photo for use without attribution.

Almost all the images are professional quality and it is very easy to download the images. You do not have to sign up for an account or anything!

With an intuitive search engine and an easy to find photo format, this site is definitely the first place I look for free stock photos for my website.

2. Woophy

Woophy free photo site has an unusual name but it stands for world of Photography.

The great advantage to this site is that you have access to professional photographs from all over the world. There is even a map that you can click to see photos from different areas.

It is a great site to find images for an ethnically diverse website or specific cultural images. Look up images by city, country or subject.

3. Stock Vault

Stock Vault is a great source for more artsy photos. If you love color, bright lights, and unusual shots then this is a great site to check out. It is also good because they offer large photos for free as well, not just small ones.

Unfortunately it is owned by ShutterStock, so many times it will refer you to paid images on that site.

4. Morgue File

Morgue File is a great one for a mix of professional and non-professional images.

With photographs in sizes no less than 800 x 600 pixels, there are a wide variety of images that you can find to use on your website.

Attribution is required, but you can contact the original photographers and see if you can purchase the photo for cheap. Best of all, all the images on this site are free!

5. Stock.xchng

Stock.xchng free photograph site is full of great images that are royalty free. You can use and distribute these stock photos anywhere and most of them are very high quality. Although they do not have a large range of images to choose from there are some very good stock photographs on this site.

These are just a few of the free photo sites that you can find online. As I said, each one has its pros and cons, but if you are looking for a great free image for your website you can check out these five great sites!

As smartphones are able to process images at incredible resolutions, do digital cameras have a place in general society? Although digital cameras have increased the resolution of images provided by them, smartphones such as the LG Spectrum 2 can handle 8MP of HD recording and image snapshots. Is there any reason why the average consumer would need to invest in a personal digital camera?
