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.

Samsung’s Gear VR works with its own range of Galaxy devices, but what if you want to use a similar head-mounted visor with the iPhone 6? Carl Zeiss has the answer in the form of the VR One, a visor that pairs with an iPhone 6′s screen and processor to drive visuals. Currently available for pre-order for $ 99, the VR headset is set to launch later this year.

In addition to being compatible with the iPhone 6, Carl Zeiss has mentioned that the headset will work with several Android handsets with screen sizes 4.7 inches to 5.2 inches, and that it will provide unique trays for most compatible devices, which will retail for $ 10 each. The screen size restriction means that the headset won’t be compatible with the iPhone 6 Plus.

The VR One is built on an open-source platform, and while the base unit comes with a limited set of apps that allow you to view movies in 3D, browse through images, access Street View and interact with augmented reality, Carl Zeiss is offering an SDK to developers to build additional functionality to the headset. VR One is currently available for pre-order for $ 99, with the first batch of orders set to commence shipping by Christmas. Carl Zeiss is estimating a wider release sometime next year.

What do you guys think of Carl Zeiss’ attempts with VR One? Any of you interested in pre-ordering one the headset?

Best iPhone and iPad apps of the week: Diner Dash and more!

Posted by BMetts On October - 11 - 2014

It’s another week, and we’ve gathered together the very best apps and games that have been released over the last seven days for iPhone and iPad. If there’s a running theme for the games this week, it’s racing. We’ve got a fresh endless runner, a casual game, and some more classic racing racing games to take in. On the app side, there’s a healthy selection for the creatives out there, with art, video, and photography apps, but also something for the left-brained iPhone owners.

Enough yap, let’s start downloading some sweet apps for iPhone and iPad.


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.

Zombie Highway 2

Zombie Highway 2 brings back the classic endless racer where players need to avoid post-apocalyptic debris and shake off ravenous zombies. To do that, you can scrape them off by barely missing obstacles, or load up your death machine with ramshackle weaponry. 6 cars, 10 zombie types, 55 different objectives, a daily challenge, and 15 upgradeable weapons make for a fun, gorey ride. In-app purchases are available if you need a hand mopping up the undead.

Zombie Highway 2 as fast, ridiculous, and an awesome way to kill time.

Cars: Fast as Lightning

Cars: Fast as Lightning is a casual city-building game with light one-touch racing elements. It features the whole cast of the familiar Pixar movie, and even has a dash of original voice acting. Players build up their own little town of Radiator Springs and customize tracks with outrageous stunts. Race against fierce competitors in one-on-one battles relying on tight turns and big jumps. Expect the usual freemium elements here, such as resource gathering at regular intervals, premium currency, energy meters, and upgrade timers.

Cars: Fast as Lightning is kid-friendly, and offers some unique mechanics in the grand scheme of casual games.

Reckless Racing 3

Reckless Racing 3 is a gorgeous rally racing game with touch-friendly controls. Work your way through 36 different routes in career, arcade, or single events. If you feel like you’re on your A-game, you can give the obstacle course a try and hone your drifting skills. Gamepad and iCloud support are both included, plus if you’ve got the urge to fast-track progress, there are in-app purchases available.

Sporty drivers will have great time in Reckless Racing 3.

Diner Dash

The classic mobile time management game has been revamped with fresh graphics. The new Diner Dash has players hopping between receiving new guests, taking orders, delivering meals, gathering checks, and clearing tables from a wide range of over-the-top (and often picky) customers. There are over 90 levels and three diners to work in, and 20 customer types to serve. The usual freemium tropes are here, such as energy meters, social tie-ins, and premium currency.

If that’s alright by you, Diner Dash is a tried-and-true recipe that is long overdue for a fresh serving.

Clips

Clips is a handy little Notification Center widget that helps you keep tabs on content you copy to your clipboard and need to paste later. Multiple items (either text or images) can be saved, which is perfect for folks who are jumping between apps regularly. It even ties in with the keyboard for future pasting. With a premium upgrade, you can access Clips between iPhone and iPad.

Clips is a light, helpful, and free app that can make your life just a little bit easier when putting together documents or messages.

Prompt 2

Prompt 2 is a highly functional SSH client for anyone managing web servers. The brand new version introduces Clips, which offers one-tap access to common commands thanks to a customized keyboard bar, private key generation, Touch ID lock to keep server access secure, and not to mention a sleek redesign for iOS 8 and the latest iPhones.

Prompt 2 is a great way to ensure site admins can fix things fast no matter where they are.

Reflect+

Reflect+ is a fun little photography app that lets you drop in reflections in your images, and add haze or ripple effects as desired. Mirroring of existing subjects is easy, but you can also drop in fireworks, rainbows, lens flares, and other skyborne objects seamlessly. Various presets ensure your reflections are convincing, plus filters can help add just a little extra atmosphere to your shot.

Anyone itching to get creative with their iPhone pictures will find plenty of opportunity in Reflect+.

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 week 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 for iOS, 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 whatsoever.

Fitbit may not have any plans to offers support for Apple’s HealthKit platform anytime soon, but another smart devices company, Withings, is jumping in full force to add support to HealthKit, including a new version of its Health Mate app for the iPhone and iPad.

The actual device support includes the company’s Smart Body Analyzer, the Pulse O2 fitness band, the Wireless Blood Pressure Monitor and the Aura sleep tracker. The Health Mate app has also been updated to synch its data from Health Mate’s Profile screen to the HealthKit app. Touch ID support for securing that data has also been added.

More updates are in the works including adapting the app so it works better on the larger iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus screens. Do you use any of Withing’s products with your iOS device?

The launch of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus were bonanzas for Apple, with more than 10 million devices sold in the first weekend, but the new devices were also a huge boon to mobile device accessory makers. According to an analysis by the NPD Group, accessory sales in the two weeks following the new iPhones’ September 19th launch surged by 43%, hitting $ 249 million.

For comparison’s sake, the launch of the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c a year saw a more modest (but still substantial) bump of 17% to $ 195 million for the two weeks that followed.

Unsurprisingly, it was screen protectors and cases that drove the majority of the increase:

Screen protector revenue increased 120 percent versus the pre-launch period, and cases increased 78 percent in revenue and 63 percent in units. Other accessory categories saw growth, but not near the levels of the protection devices; revenue for mobile power products grew 5 percent, headphones with microphones were up 10 percent, and Bluetooth speakers increased 5 percent.

You can, of course, check out a wide variety of accessories for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, including cases, pouches, headphones, and more, at the iMore Store.

Jony Ive: Apple nearly gave up on touch with the first iPhone

Posted by BMetts On October - 9 - 2014

Apple’s senior vice president of design Jony Ive did not mince words about the competition at today’s Vanity Fair New Establishment Summit. When he sees designs from Apple in the products of other companies he isn’t very flattered.

The official Twitter account for Vanity Fair tweeted some choice quotes from Jony Ive. Here are some of our favorites:

"I think a beautiful product that doesn't work very well is ugly" "I don't see it as flattery, I see it as theft, and it's lazy." - on Xiaomi's copy-cat phone "There were a thousand reasons, and many occasions, where we nearly gave up" on touch 

Hit up the Vanity Fair Twitter stream to see some more. There should be video shortly posted online of Jony Ive. We’ll share it when it does go live.

Zynga is rebooting one of its most well known and popular games, Words With Friends, with an update for the iPhone and iPad that not only adds some new features but also changes the name of the game slightly to New Words With Friends.

Here’s what’s new in the game

  • Solo Play – As the most requested new feature, players now have a way to practice on their own without a direct opponent and without an Internet connection. Solo Play adjusts to a player’s level, so winning a game is within reach, yet still challenging.
  • Community Match – Looking for the ultimate opponent? Community Match provides players with a personalized way to find more opponents and opportunities to play more games. ‘Opt-in’ to browse profile cards that showcase stats and photos of potential new opponents and then tap or swipe to start a game. Players can choose to ‘opt-out’ at any time. In addition to Community Match, players can still enjoy the Smart Match feature to find new opponents.
  • Dictionary and Word of the Day – Build your vocabulary and learn the meaning of more than 170,000 words in the Words With Friends lexicon using the new Dictionary feature including definitions, audio pronunciation, and a word’s frequency of play. Word of the Day presents a new word each day directly on the main screen to expand players’ vocabularies and word savviness. Dictionary and Word of the Day are powered by Dictionary.com, the leading online and mobile dictionary.
  • Profile and Stats – Present your game face and show-off your victories with new Profiles and Stats. Players can now track their all-time playing history including high score, number of games completed, and their average word score. Player Profiles also enable players to compare their stats with friends and recent opponents in a fun, animated format.

Do these new features, especially the single player game mode, make you want to play this game again?

On Tuesday of this week Samsung shocked much of Wall Street. The South Korean mobile giant said it would bring in a profit of $ 3.8 billion for the quarter compared to analyst expectations of about $ 5.2 billion. This also represents a year over year decline of about 60%, so it’s a huge downward swin

For quite some time, Samsung has been the dominant name in Android land. In North America and Europe, where there is a larger appetite for high end phones, Samsung made a ton of money because they priced products similar to Apple’s iPhone. Presumably they pulled in similarly thick profit margins on their hardware.

Samsung also has the advantage of controlling much of its supply chain, unlike smaller Android phone makers like HTC or Motorola, and scores of lesser known Indian or Chinese suppliers. But with such a big shift away from feature phones and towards low end smartphones around the world, Android volumes are steadily rising and the supply chain is maturing. Perhaps Samsung’s advantage is diminishing at the low end? And at the high end the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus has essentially closed any of the big gaps left that would cause a would-be iOS user to adopt Android instead. Screen size was a big factor here.

Because Samsung and other Android vendors don’t have any particular differentiation to offer outside of hardware. which is arguably becoming more of a commodity, how can we expect any one vendor to generate significantly higher gross margins?

I don’t think we can, and it’s finally starting to hurt Samsung.

Just like Microsoft controlled the software (and much of the profit) on Windows PCs in the last few decades, Android now holds that position in mobile. Where Microsoft was once the “barely debugged stack of drivers” to manufacturers the world over, now there’s Google, and the hardware vendors are again fighting for thin margins because they don’t control the entire user experience like Apple does.

In fact, for Apple, things are very much like they were in the PC space. They’re the #2 player by operating system volume, and they command huge margins because they control everything. Android’s largest supporter, Samsung, is seeing a collapse while Apple is growing and posting awesome numbers.

I also think the big difference between the PC space and the mobile industry is the idea of digital app delivery done through a single store. Microsoft never was able to make much money from software that it didn’t write itself. But Google has replaced Microsoft in the transition to mobile and they do profit, as does Apple, from all app sales.

Long story short: Google and Apple remain powerful because they control the operating systems, app stores and digital sales. Vendors who make hardware that is as good as Apple’s are unlikely to ever make the same kind of profit. They simply don’t control enough of the experience to command Apple-like margins.

Photo submission by lessismore17

Changing leaves crunching beneath your boots, laughter filled hay rides, crisp cool air, and pumpkin everything… that’s right, it’s Autumn again! This week we want to see what fall means to you. Feel free to look beyond the leaves and pumpkins and get creative, however if your photo doesn’t fit the subject in an obvious way it could get looked over, so make sure you leave a back story or explanation with it.

The contest begins now and ends Tuesday October 14th at 11:59 PDT. Good luck!

It’s also time to announce the winner of our last photo contest! The winner is…

Now on to the details of this week’s photo contest…

The prize: Arkon Mobile Grip 2 Universal Smartphone Flexible Mini Tripod Mount!

The winner of this week’s photo contest will snag an Arkon Mobile Grip 2 Universal Smartphone Flexible Mini Tripod Mount. Say hello to the perfect mobile accessory for capturing images and video in the most obscure locations!

The Mobile Grip 2 Mini Camera Tripod works with smartphones up to 3.6-inches wide and even digital cameras that utilize a standard 1/4″ – 20 camera pattern. The spring-loaded device holder on this unique mount expands to accommodate your phone, some even while wearing your favorite case.

You can submit as many photos as you’d like, but remember, this is a contest, so make sure you submit your best work!

Resources

Now, before you run off to take your photo, remember that it’s not technical skill alone that will claim this prize. Even if you’re not the best photographer (yet!), a great eye and a great subject can still get you the win.

However, a little help can never hurt, so make sure you check out our iPhone photography series for some tips.

How to submit

Submitting your photos is easy. just head over to the iMore Photography Forum and post your photos to the official contest thread. Don’t forget to state what device you have and which apps, if any, you used to edit your photo!

Facebook may be working on a new stand alone mobile app that will allow its users to interact with others but without using their real names, and that app could be released in a matter of weeks.

The report comes from the New York Times, which cites unnamed sources. It claims Facebook has been working on this project for close to a year. According to the article, the idea is to allow Facebook users to chat about topics that they would be uncomfortable talking about with their real names.

The article doesn’t have a lot of details of how this rumored app will work, although it does say the effort is being lead by Josh Miller. He was brought into the company when it acquired Branch in early 2014, which developed tools for online conversations. For its part, Facebook won’t comment on the report. If Facebook did release such an app, would you use it?
