"For All Your Wireless Needs"

Welcome to my website

  Located at 88 East Main Street, in lovely downtown Ramsey, New Jersey is an authorized Dealer for AT&T Wireless Services. They have been in the wireless business since 1999; but their cumulative wireless experience totals over 40 years. This type of experience can only benefit their customer base. Since day # 1, the owner and staff have tried to steer clear of the stereotypical wireless dealership mentality. It has been their goal to be more of a consultant; than a salesperson. They treat “word of mouth” or “referral” business as their driving force.

Cook confronts analysts on iPad sales

Posted by BMetts On April - 23 - 2014
Featured Image

No sooner did Apple announce its second quarter 2014 financial results than financial analysts and reporters called it a miss, because iPad sales were lower than analysts’ expectations. In his preamble during the conference call to discuss those results, Apple CEO Tim Cook took a moment to address the discrepancy.

“iPad sales came in at the high end of our estimates,” Cook emphasized, uncharacteristically taking issue with analysts’ projections.

Cook suggested that analysts had a skewed perspective on Apple’s prospective sales for the quarter because of two factors: Apple greatly increased iPad channel inventory for the same quarter a year ago. Separately, Apple exited the December quarter with a large backlog of orders for the iPad mini with Retina display, while it worked down that inventory over the quarter.

Cook’s explanation of channel inventory was expanded upon by Luca Maestri, Apple’s VP of finance and corporate controller. Maestri explained that iPad sales declined only 3 percent year-over-year in sell-through: the number of iPads in new customers’ hands. That’s a slightly less harsh measure than the 16 percent decline in sell-in, or the number of iPads actually in distribution.

Cook also noted that about two thirds of Apple’s iPad customers have never owned an iPad before — a strong indication that plenty of new customers still want the iPad.

Apple launches new iPhone 5s ad ‘Powerful’

Posted by BMetts On April - 23 - 2014

Apple has released a new iPhone 5s ad called “Powerful”. It’s set to the song Gigantic by the Pixies, the ad highlights the iPhone 5s’ utility with several kinds of musical instruments and vocals, as a connected controller for lighting, gaming, and rocket launching, for slow motion video, videography, live translation, blood pressure measurement, and finishes with the line — “You’re more powerful than you think”.

It’s a good ad, not as intense as Verse and a lot more fun. It’s the kind of ad that once again shows people what’s possible with the iPhone and with App Store apps. It’s the kind of ad that sells.

How do you like it?

  • Adds a preference to turn off push notification prompts from websites
  • Adds support for webpages with generic top-level domains
  • Strengthens Safari sandboxing
  • Fixes security issues, including several identified in recent security competitions

You’ll find your update in the Mac App Store, and word of warning — this one requires a reboot.

Son of Batman now available on iTunes

Posted by BMetts On April - 22 - 2014
Featured Image

The latest DC animated movie, Son of Batman is now available from iTunes and ready and waiting for you to stream to your Apple TV or download to your iPhone, iPad, or — and still the only place you can watch the iTunes Extras — your Mac.

Based on the recent Grant Morrison and Andy Kubert comic book arc, Son of Batman introduces the character of Damien Wayne, the son of Bruce Wayne and Talia, the daughter of one of his greatest enemies, Ras Al Ghul. Damien spent his formative years being raised by Ras and by the League of Shadows to be an assassin but his father challenges him to become something more, to become the next Robin. Nightwing shows up along the way, as does Killer Croc and the villain of the film, Slade Wilson, aka Deathstroke the Terminator (who is currently also the villain on the WB’s Arrow TV show).

Son of Batman is really well done, but sadly is also really, unnecessarily violent. My 5 and 8 year old godkids love few things in this world more than Nightwing and Robin, and I can’t even contemplate showing them this until they’re 13. And that’s a shame. Paul Dini and Bruce Timm didn’t need gore to make the transcendent Batman: The Animated and DC doesn’t need it here. Whatever “mature” audience they think they’re pandering to with it can’t make up for the new audiences they’re missing out on engaging. But such is the tragedy of modern comics as well.

Still, this is easily my favorite DC animated movie since Batman: Under The Red Hood, which is also not for kids, but which also investigated similar themes of vengeance vs. justice and the incredibly thin line that separates Batman, Nightwing, and Robin from the monsters they hunt.

It’ll be interesting to see if DC follows Son of the Batman up with the rest of the Damien Wayne story. Next up, however, at least for now, is Batman: Arkham Assault, a film based on the video game series.

If you check out Son of the Batman, let me know what you think!

Apple TV adds A&E, History Channel, Lifetime

Posted by BMetts On April - 21 - 2014
Featured Image

Apple TV users in the United States have three new channels to get content from today: A&E, History and Lifetime have been added to the more than 40 other channels available on the Apple TV.

Each channel contains popular programming from each cable television channel, including clips and full episodes of TV shows. Programs like Bates Motel and Duck Dynasty are available from A&E, while History has programming from both the History Channel and H2, like Vikings, Pawn Stars and Ancient Aliens. Lifetime’s available programs include Dance Moms, Preachers’ Daughters and Devious Maids.

Like many cable and satellite channels that offer content through the Apple TV, the three A+E Networks-owned channels that activated today require you to log in to an activation page on a web site, verifying your cable or satellite TV provider to gain access. As the channels launched, only DirecTV, Optimum and Verizon FIOS were supported.

Are basic cable channels like A&E, History and Lifetime important for you to have on your Apple TV, or are you looking for something different? Sound off in the comments.

Are the best games on Android or are the best games on iPhone? That’s a question that’s becoming increasingly important to both Apple and Google, and they’re reportedly willing to help developers get massive marketing pushes in exchange for periods of exclusivity for hot new games. This will come as a surprise to precisely no one familiar with the console market, or the basics of running any store, real-world or virtual. Mario, Sonic, Halo, and other exclusive franchises made the console wars of the past, and on mobile, and for iOS and Android, that’s now translating into Plants vs. Zombies 2, Cut the Rope 2, and many others. Ian Sherr and Daisuke Wakabayashi, writing for the Wall Street Journal:

As Android’s influence has grown, Apple’s editorial team has been factoring in exclusivity to a greater degree after it deems an app to be attractive, according to people familiar with the process. The editorial team also will give greater consideration to titles recommended by its developer-relations staff, they said.

Android, both in the form of Google’s Play Store and Amazon’s appstore, are working promotional angles in their own way as well:

Google has struck deals to help promote apps that integrate Android branding. [...] Amazon.com Inc, too, has gotten into the act. The online retailer has sought exclusivity deals with game developers as a way to boost the appeal of its Kindle family of Android devices. Amazon is offering premium placement on its app store’s home screen in exchanges for exclusivity, according to people familiar with the matter.

There’s apparently no money changing hands, but the massive marketing boost preferred placement in Google, Apple, or Amazon can provide in terms of downloads and purchases is just as good. Apple once-upon-a-time made a game of their own, Texas Hold ‘Em, but has long since removed it from sale. Google acquired and maintains Ingress, their own Android-exclusive game. None of them have gone to Mario, Sonic, or Halo levels yet when it comes to exclusive gaming, however. But is that just a matter of time?

How do you feel about platform exclusives? Do they influence your buying decision or just frustrate you if and when you have to wait?

Game of Phones is a great-looking card game in the home stretch of its Kickstarter campaign. It resembles Cards Against Humanity or Apples to Apples in that a judge plays a single challenge card, and decides which response from the other players he or she likes best. The difference here is that instead of playing cards as a response, players meet challenges with their phones. This means doing stuff like showing the last picture they took, the most yuppie app they have installed, or be the first to get a Like on an Instagram picture. The winner gets the card, and the first to gather ten cards wins.

I really like this idea because it highlights phones as the fun, connected objects they are, not some antisocial black hole that they’re often perceived as. Plus, in larger groups after a few drinks, this game is bound to be tons of fun. The Game of Phones developers have already blasted through their modest funding goal of $ 6,000, but if you want to be among the first to get a deck, the entry-level funding tier of $ 25 will get you one with free shipping within the U.S. If you’re feeling generous, there are still a few $ 100 tier rewards left, which include a swanky laser-etched rosewood box.

Head on over to the Game of Phones Kickstarter page to pledge now, before the campaign wraps up on April 24. Who’s in?
