Wireless World Of Ramsey

"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.

Best iPhone and iPad apps of October

Posted by BMetts On November - 1 - 2014
Featured Image

Hopefully you guys are gearing up for a fun-filled Halloween, but we wouldn’t let October slip by without rounding up the very best games and best apps for iPhone and iPad that have been released in the last 30 days. We’ve got a ton of running and racing games this month, plus one of the best RPGs we’ve seen in the App Store in awhile. There are also lots of high quality creative apps to check out, whether your into music, art, or videography.

We’re always eager to hear what you guys have installed, so be sure to hit up the comments with your favorite new apps. With that, let’s dig into our top ten new iOS apps that were released in October.


Vektor

Vektor is an aggressive cyberpunk endless runner. You’re a futuristic courier trying to deliver sensitive material to a corporate customer, and mercenaries are busy trying to take you out. Simple controls help you weave through traffic while avoiding would-be attackers. The neon, Tron-inspired art and music style is entirely hypnotic and the ever-increasing challenges are likely to keep you coming back for more.

Run Sackboy! Run!

Run Sackboy! Run! is a simple platforming game that ties into the upcoming Little Big Planet 3 for PlayStation. Grab coins, avoid obstacles, and make sure you don’t get slowed down too much, or the The Negativitron may catch up with you. The graphics and premise are very kid friendly while maintaining a lot of charm for the older folks too. The signature real-world textures of everything in the game makes everything instantly comfortable. In-app purchases are employed to score you extra lives or cute new costumes, though you can play your way to new outfits too. Best of all, those costumes will become available to you in the console game as well. Grab Run Sackboy! Run! if you’re looking for simple, down-to-earth fun.

Daddy Long Legs

This is a free game similar to the awkward long-distance runner QWOP. Players have to delicately maneuver a giant two-legged spider-type creature for as long a distance as possible. Every tap of the screen switches which legs are moving, but make sure to time it right, because Daddy Long Legs has an awful sense of balance and it’s a long way down. Best (worst?) of all, the game keeps tabs on how many falls you make over the course of playing.

Daddy Long Legs has quick replay value, a sharp art style, and a high difficulty curve.

The Banner Saga

The Banner Saga is a highly polished tale chock-full of Norse mythology. Jump between meaningful dialog sessions and turn-based tactical combat with 25 different characters spanning 5 different classes. Manage scarce resources to improve your heroes and keep your band moving across a cold and desolate landscape.

The art style alone in The Banner Saga is enough to pick it up, but it also strikes an excellent balance between strong, character-driven story and classic RPG-style combat.

Tilt to Live: Gauntlet’s Revenge

Tilt to Live: Gauntlet’s Revenge, is the latest iteration in an excellent action game series. Instead of being stuck in a static arena and having to tilt your device around incoming enemies and towards power-ups, you have to work through a continually scrolling stage, similar to an endless runner. Gather blue cubes as best you can without getting hit. Take too many hits, and it’s game over. The finely tuned gyro controls make for a really tense and fast-paced game.

Inbox by Gmail

Inbox is Google’s reimagining of handling e-mail, that bundles in reminders, and collapses similar messages together. Particularly important messages will bubble up to the top, and Google will go ahead and pull in useful information from outside sources for certain messages. You can also snooze e-mails and reminders, so you can tune out from threads you aren’t directly involved in, or tasks you can get to right now. For now, you need an invite to use Inbox, but Google seems to be giving those out pretty liberally.

Pixelmator

Pixelmator is a hugely popular photo editing and art app for Mac that has found its way to iPad this week. As you might expect, you can work seamlessly between the two devices, so you can keep working on your projects while on the go or at your desk. Correct colors, set white balance, blur, sharpen, distort, add text, and do just about everything else you could need to do with a big boy image editor.

Adobe Premiere Clip

Adobe Premiere Clip helps you easily import video shot on your iPhone or iPad onto your Mac for editing, in addition to enabling some light editing of your own. Trim your videos, make some color adjustments and transitions, plus drop in soundtracks, including a handful included with the app. The Auto Mix feature will make sure audio quality is consistent between clips. Of course it all ties in with Adobe Creative Cloud so you can upload your video and keep working on it on other devices seamlessly.

Adobe released a whole bunch of other great iOS apps this month that are also worth checking out: Brush, Shape, and Color, plus significant updates to Line, Sketch, and Mix.

Autodesk SketchBook

Autodesk revamped their freehand drawing app and the new version is fantastic. Fine tune a wide range of brushes, some of which are bundled, some available through an in-app purchase. A layer editor and a mirroring tool unlock once you set up an account, plus you can plug into DeviantArt to share your stuff instantly. Tablet and smartphone screen sizes are supported.

SketchBook is worth a download if you do any doodling.

Auxy

Auxy is a fresh new music creation app with a really fantastic interface. Simple gestures and four different types of instruments looped and layered together help you create some interesting music. Add and distort different bass, synth, and drums, tweak the tempo, change the key, do whatever tickles your fancy and make something unique. Final creations can be shot out to iTunes, uploaded to SoundCloud, or opened in any other supporting apps. If you’re looking for a basic way to get into music creation, Auxy is a great starting point.

AT&T upping data available on $40 and $70 plans

Posted by BMetts On October - 31 - 2014

AT&T is bumping up data allotments on their $ 40 and $ 70 plans from 2 GB to 3 GB and 4 GB to 6 GB, respectively. The change kicks in November 2 and applies to Mobile Share Value plans.

To sweeten the deal, AT&T is extending their Double the Data deal for another two weeks, so you can grab 30 GB of data for $ 130 a month (which would normally get you 15 GB to split with family or colleagues). Include your tablet on the plan for another $ 10 a month, and tack on unlimited international messaging for free, and this isn’t a bad deal at all. Just don’t forget that you’re paying $ 25/month for each line on top of that. Head over to AT&T to sign up, if you’re into it.

How many of you guys are with AT&T? For those of you that aren’t, is the extra data enough to get you to switch?

A Virginia Beach Circuit Court judge ruled that law enforcement officials can compel you to unlock your smartphone with a fingerprint, but that they can’t force you to enter in your passcode or password to unlock your device. Judge Steven Frucci says that obtaining a fingerprint is like obtaining a DNA sample or a physical key, things that would have to be surrendered in an investigation anyways. Passcodes would be considered knowledge, and not a physical object, so they deserve more protection under the law.

The ruling arose from a case surrounding Emergency Medical Services tech David Baust, who was charged for strangling his girlfriend. The attorney for Baust tried to stop authorities from gaining access to his phone, where he may have stored video footage of the alleged crime.

Do you secure your phone with a fingerprint ID? What do you think of the ruling? Will you switch back to using a PIN?

Microsoft has announced a new version of Skype for the iPhone that adds a number of new features and improvements, including a way to save or delete photos in its chat UI.

Here’s what will be included in the 5.7 update, which should be available from iTunes sometime today:

  • Save and delete photo – If you want to save a memorable photo to your camera roll or delete a sent photo from a chat, simply press and hold the image and the options will appear.
  • Faster chat load time – Now when you receive a notification and tap it to open the app, the message will be there waiting for you without any delays.
  • Avatars for all chat – You can now see all avatars for groups and people, and if they’re changed on other platforms, they’ll update in the app too so you always have the latest showing.
  • People list UI improvements – In 5.7, we’ve made it easier to find the people list search and filter options, so you can quickly and easily find the person you want to chat with and get started.

How often do you use Skype on your iPhone?

CurrentC could switch to NFC tech in the future

Posted by On October - 29 - 2014
Featured Image

It looks like Apple Pay and Google Wallet rival CurrentC, which is backed by some of the largest leading retailers, is looking into NFC for the future. In its current implementation, CurrentC converts banking information into a scannable QR code for payment at the register, and the group said that it could change and quickly pivot to an NFC-based payment system if the market demands it.

The head of CurrentC’s parent group, Dekkers Davison, said in a virtual press conference:

We’re agnostic about technology. We started with QR code-based technology that allows us to go to market broadly. If we need, we can pivot to NFC.

News of the change to NFC follows news that user email addresses may have been hacked and clarification from CurrentC saying that it would allow its partner members to accept competing mobile wallets without any penalties.

Thanks to Jeb for the tip.

Every week Apple adds tons of new media content on iTunes — music, books, movies and more. It’s impossible to keep up with all of it, but it’s not impossible to pick out the very best. Here they are! This week we’ve got new J-Pop music with a vampire theme, Saw, Treehouse of Horror, and new work from cyberpunk author William Gibson!


Bloodsuckers – Vamps

OK, it’s Halloween this week, so I had to throw something in here that was at least thematically appropriate. I recognize Japanese rock, or J-Rock, isn’t for everyone, but Vamps is positive J-Rock royalty: Hyde, vocalist of L’Arc-en-Ciel, and K.A.Z, guitarist of Oblivion Dust. Bloodsuckers is a very different sound, though: More of a poppy commercial sheen. They sell the sexy urban vampire mythology in 13 tracks, sung in English. A good starting point for anyone who’s been interested in J-Rock but have found it impenetrable up until now.

Backspace Unwind – Lamb

Andy Barlow and Lou Rhodes released their sixth album together a few weeks ago; Backspace Unwind doesn’t fall too far from the formula they’ve established. Lamb falls within the electronic music genre, with influences from drum and bass, trip hop and jazz solidly in place. Rhodes’ soulful vocals are offset by Barlow’s haunting arrangements — too downtempo to be club-friendly, but great mood music that’s not just ambient background noise. Four of the tracks include string arrangements, which add some nice flair. If you liked Portishead back in the day, there’s a lot to enjoy on this new album.

Saw: The Complete Movie Collection

Looking for something creepy to watch on Halloween? How about Saw: The Complete Movie Collection? All Seven saw movies from the original all the way through to the Final Chapter, here, budget-priced at $ 29.99. A terminally ill psychopath is intent on teach his victims the value of life by trapping them in a game of survival. Brutal, gory fun featuring Jigsaw, one of the most memorable characters in slasher film history.

22 Jump Street

I’ll admit that when I heard they were rebooting 21 Jump Street as a buddy comedy I had my doubts, but those doubts were allayed by Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum’s hilarious depictions of two bumbling undercover cops back in high school. 22 Jump Street finds our ridiculous heroes on an undercover job in college, instead. Hill and Tatum are a great bromance, and a fun cast of supporting characters including Peter Stormare, Ice Cube, Jillian Bell and others make this a hilarious romp.

The Simpsons: Treehouse of Horror Collections

Among my very favorite episodes of The Simpsons are the annual Treehouse of Horror episodes, which always air around Halloween and often send up pop culture and current events with the usual Simpsons flair. Now the Treehouse episodes have been gathered into value-priced collections, each with six episodes, all of which are worth getting. If you’re looking for something Halloween-themed that’s not quite as horrifying as Saw, here’s a great choice!

Treehouse of Horror Collection I – $ 6.99 – Download now Treehouse of Horror Collection II – $ 6.99 – Download now Treehouse of Horror Collection III – $ 6.99 – Download now

The Peripheral – William Gibson

William Gibson, cyberpunk author behind the seminal Neuromancer is back, this time with The Peripheral, a near-future story set in the world after “the jackpot,” an economic and ecological collapse. Gamer Flynne Fisher is helping her brother a new game when she witnesses what she thinks is a gruesome murder. What happens next has ramifications for Flynne and humanity as Gibson weaves together a time-traveling tale as only he can.

Newly-leaked Microsoft presentation documents show that the company is planning to launch Office 16 for Mac sometime in the first half of 2015 and that it wants to give those users software features that will be similar to the ones found on the Windows version.

The leaked presentation, posted on the Chinese language site CNBeta, shows that Office 16 for Mac programs will gain features previously reserved for Windows users, such as a presentation view for PowerPoint. Office 16 for Mac will also have better integration with Microsoft’s cloud services such as OneDrive. A beta version of Office 16 for Mac could be launched by the end of 2014, if these documents are accurate. It’s likely that Microsoft will give Mac owners a way to access the new version via an Office 365 subscription, which starts at $ 6.99.

While Microsoft has not launched a major new version of Office for the Mac since 2010, it did launch full versions of Office apps for the iPad in March. Is Microsoft taking too long to launch a new Office for Mac owners?

Apple responds to Apple Pay being shut out from CVS, Rite Aid

Posted by BMetts On October - 28 - 2014
Featured Image

After the debacle of CVS and Rite Aid turning off NFC in their payment terminals inside stores and thus shutting out Apple Pay on iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus customers from mobile payments, Apple had gone on record to issue a response, stating that so far customers and merchants who support Apple Pay are happy with the service.

CVS, which is a member of another mobile payment consortium called CurrentC, said:

At this time CVS/pharmacy cannot accept Apple Pay or other mobile payments that use NFC technology. We are in the process of evaluating mobile payment options for our customers.

In a statement to Business Insider, Apple said:

The feedback we are getting from customers and retailers about Apple Pay is overwhelmingly positive and enthusiastic. We are working to get as many merchants as possible to support this convenient, secure and private payment option for consumers. Many retailers have already seen the benefits and are delighting their customers at over 220,000 locations.

Apple’s statement is similar to what it had said when it gave an update to Apple Pay’s status at the iPad launch keynote recently.

Another large retailer, WalMart, which does not support NFC or Apple Pay at this time, is also part of the competing CurrentC consortium as Rite Aid and CVS, offered the following explanation:

There are certainly a lot of compelling technologies being developed, which is great for the mobile-commerce industry as a whole. Ultimately, what matters is that consumers have a payment option that is widely accepted, secure and developed with their best interests in mind. MCX member merchants already collectively serve a majority of Americans every day. MCX’s members believe merchants are in the best position to provide a mobile solution because of their deep insights into their customers’ shopping and buying experiences.

iPad mini 3 review

Posted by BMetts On October - 27 - 2014
Featured Image

The iPad mini didn’t get the same update as its bigger brother, iPad Air this year. There’s no laminated display with antiglare coating, and there’s no monstrous Apple A8X chipset. Internally, that which the iPad mini 2 had, the iPad mini 3 mirrors. So what do you get with Apple’s newest version of its smallest iPad? A 7.9-inch high-resolution window into the internet and apps, made even more convenient thanks to the addition of Touch ID and Apple Pay, a slightly-more-fashionable model thanks to an optional gold finish, and more affordable pricing thanks to a reduction in price for the 64GB and 128GB models.

It’s still supremely portable, and powerful enough for almost everyone. But two years after launch, and one year after Retina, is the iPad mini 3 enough?

Read our review of the iPad mini 3 to find out.
