Never Get Locked Out Again

1399470_girl_with_mobile_phoneNo one can deny the greatness of the iPhone.  I know that I was in line the day that they hit the market and I wasn’t the only one!  Since I travel overseas so often and my carrier’s international roaming rates are so high, I went with the unlocked iPhone option, so that I can use any provider’s SIM card, giving me the option of using an overseas carrier with lower rates, while I am in Europe. Of course, the office does pay for a portion of those calls, since we are there on business, but the lion’s share of those expenses are paid by the employees who made the calls.  Little do my coworkers know just how easy it is to unlock the iPhone to get those lower rates.


Why Unlock Your iPhone?


For the most part, people don’t realize why they would have a need to unlock their iPhone and the general public tends to stick with the plan that their provider offers.  Well, I’ve never been the type who likes to be boxed into the first contract that is put in front of me.  Perhaps it has something to do with my fear of commitment…At any rate, having an unlocked iPhone means that I don’t have to just take what cell phone service providers are offering, to anyone who walks through the door.  An unlocked iPhone means that I can pick and choose which provider I want to use, even giving me the power to switch between carriers for different situations, simply by switching out the phone SIM card.  In other words, unlocking your iPhone gives you the freedom to make your own decisions, when it comes to your service.


Unlocking The iPhone


Now that you know why you should unlock your iPhone, you probably want to know how.  Don’t worry, I didn’t know how at first either!  It’s actually pretty easy and if you go through the official routes, it won’t void your warranty or interrupt any service.  The best way to get an officially unlocked iPhone is simply to buy one from Apple directly.  A few years back, iPhone started offering unlocked iPhones, for purchase directly from their stores and websites.  Your phone’s serial number is added to a database that keeps track of unlocked phones, so that the phone isn’t tethered to a specific provider.  This really is the best way, but there is also software available that will help you unlock the phone.  These unofficial “hacks”, however, may limit your warranty, so keep that in mind.


Unlocking your iPhone means unlocking its potential.  Isn’t that what the iPhone is all about?  It’s easy and there’s no reason to ever be locked out again.

If you are shopping for a gadget lover, you do have some options to choose from that will make your shopping experience easier.

Taking Inventory

When you first start your shopping adventure, it is always a good idea to get a “feeler” put out there for your hard to shop for family member.

Videos are Central to Successful Online Learning

Making the decision to pursue your education beyond the secondary level is a major undertaking and one that requires a careful selection process. Knowing what method of education best fits your lifestyle and the everyday demands on your time should be an important factor in your choice. Many institutions of higher learning have successfully integrated online learning or e-learning into their curriculum. These courses designed to make the course material more accessible to a larger audience have provided an environment for learning that is more available to students. Proponents of this learning environment share common core standards regarding the importance of consistency and standardization of the process of learning and the content of the learning material.


Student-Centered Learning

Students can for the most part set the pace of the learning process and work around their individual schedules, because flexibility is built into the design. Each student is for the most part free to work within the boundaries of their interest level, technological skills and outside classroom restrictions. The pressure some students experience in a classroom setting is dissipated, there is a level of freedom to participate or not as the student chooses, and for some students this is a make or break factor. In a traditional online course the collaboration and conversations that take place are verbal but not visual. With the implementation of media into the instructional process video conferencing opens up the immediacy factor into e-learning.


Verbal and Non Verbal Cues


Media technology and elements have taken online learning to a much higher level and many agree that the integration of this technology has greatly enhanced the effectiveness of the factors that lead to learning. Understanding how the mind works during the learning process helps us to understand how audio and visual components in the online classroom optimize learning. Allowing the instructor and the student to communicate and to project their individual personalities provides a rich learning experience. Teaching is the process of sharing what you know with others, in the video classroom both student and teacher can share with the online classroom community. It has been proven that the retention level is higher in an online classroom as opposed to a face-to-face environment. Video technology in the classroom marries these two methods into a forum that has been proven to be an effective delivery agent for the learning environment.

Apple Plans Your Halloween Party

 Here we go again with the double entendres. Are we talking about Apple as a company, as in technological devices; or are we referring to the good old fashioned piece of fruit that, supposedly, keeps the doctor away when consumed once a day?


Apple—The Company


Having a party that could be labeled ‘All Things Apple’ could be started with Halloween invites in the shape of a laptop (with the obligatory apple on the front) that, when opened, resembles an open laptop with the party information printed on the ‘screen’ and a ‘keyboard’ fashioned on the bottom page. Costumes and decorations could represent all things computer or social technology related: i.e. laptops, iPads, iPhones, Facebook, apps, etc. Now when you start talking about apps, you open up a whole new area of concepts. Games! Angry Birds and other such games have taken the world by storm. Need an idea? Google the Apple App Store and just look around.


The Apple of My Eye


Used to be that no Halloween party was complete without a good old fashioned game of ‘Bobbing for Apples’. Personally, I find it repulsively unhygienic…but so much fun that I can’t resist a shot at it! A Halloween apple pie can be created by throwing a bit of orange food coloring on the topping crust and lightly using some black or bright yellow frosting to fashion the face of a jack-o-lantern. Your invites could even resemble a big apple with the face of a jack-o-lantern ‘carved’ into it, rather than a pumpkin. Of course you’ll need to decorate with as many variations of apples as the mind can ever conceive of and someone is going to be required to dress like an apple. (If it’s not a kids party Ada and Eve could be worked in at some point.)


Lastly we have…The Big Apple. All things New York. Now that’s easier than anything. Just make sure not everybody comes as the Statue of Liberty!
