"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.

Kim Kardashian: Hollywood lets you lead the life of a celebrity right on your iPhone or iPad. Work your way through the social ranks to gain more fans and make your way to the A list. As elegant as it sounds, you’ll need to do some serious work to climb your way up the social ladder, even with Kim K herself on your side. You’ll need to network with the right people, choose the right outfits, and choose tasks wisely. Stars, cash, and energy don’t grow on trees and you’ll want to make sure you’re using them wisely. Here are our favorite tips, hints, and cheats to becoming an A-lister before you know it!

1. Change your outfit often

You can change your outfit and redo your makeup and hair whenever you’d like in Kim Kardashian: Hollywood. If you’re changing into something you already own, it’ll cost you nothing. Not only that, but changing outfits regularly gets you noticed and you’ll accrue points more often. So whenever you go on a new job or start a new quest, change outfits first! Just be sure you don’t wear the same thing for too long or people may start talking.

2. Watch video offers for free stars and cash

You can watch videos every so often in exchange for free cash and stars. If you don’t mind spending a few minutes every time you play doing this, they can add up. And who doesn’t like free money? Be sure to visit both sections of the store as there are different sets of videos for both.

3. Bring friends to gigs and earn more

You can use the phone menu to call contacts and connections while you’re on jobs. If you bring someone along with you, you’ll earn more stars and level up faster. The more prominent of a figure that shows up with you, the more you’ll earn.

4. Start a long task right before you finish playing

If you decide to work a full or half shift at work, don’t waste your energy on finishing the task quickly. Instead, start these kinds of tasks before you close the game and go with shorter tasks while you’re playing that don’t require as much energy. This lets you explore more without having to pay real money or trade in stars for energy.

5. If you buy anything, buy stars

Cash is pretty easy to come by during game play and can be racked up fast. Your energy meter will also add one bolt every 5 minutes. If you’re going to spend money on anything, spend it on stars. This way if you absolutely need more energy, you’ve got stars to trade for them. There are also a lot of items you’ll want or need that you can’t buy with cash.

6. Don’t use stars to buy clothes

One of the few things you don’t want to use your stars on is clothes. As you level up, you’ll unlock lots of items that are tempting but you really don’t need them. Wait until you’re at a point in the game where you can really afford it without having to skimp elsewhere. Save the stars to go on dates and network. People may make comments if you wear the same things but they’ll still hang out with you, and that’s what matters.

If you’re going to buy clothes, aim for cash buys, not star exchanges.

7. Gifts get you to the A list faster

If you want to climb your way to the A list faster, there’s no better way to get to that inner circle than showering the people in it with gifts. Use the phone section of the game in order to find out what people are already popular and give them gifts. They’ll like you more and in time, you’ll build a relationship that’ll pay off in the long run.

8. Date lots of people, but don’t get dumped

There’s no rules when it comes to dating. Date as many people as you want and you’ll climb to the top of the A list even faster. But don’t get dumped by someone as it could negatively hurt your popularity. Instead, you don’t even actually have to pay for a date. Just call someone up to meet you but don’t actually go on the date. Basically, bring them to the place but don’t tap on their conversation bubble. This will keep them interested enough to stick around.

Microsoft has released a new, extremely good looking application for iPhone called Snipp3t. The name doesn’t say much, but this is no productivity tool, no game. No, what this is, is a celebrity news application. From Microsoft. Perhaps not the first developer you’d go to for such a thing but it’s here and for what it is it looks really nice. Well, it looks really nice so long as you’re in the U.S. and can download it, at least.

SNIPP3T (pronounced “Snippet”) is a Celebrity News app that snips everything you want to know about your favorite celebrities from all over the web and puts it in one place.

  • Subscribe to your favorite celebrity with one click, and the hottest stories about them will show up in your personalized stream of headlines.
  • Tap on a celebrity to view their detailed profiles and explore a timeline of news stories surrounding them. You can also tap into a news story to get all relevant story content (news articles, photos, videos, and social mentions) in one place.
  • Share your thoughts about the latest news with other fans of your favorite celebrities.

It leverages the power of Bing to keep you in the know with all the news about the Justin Biebers and the Katy Perrys of this world. And with the friends feature you’ll be able to hook up in cyberspace with your fellow fans and get chatting away about, well, celebrity things.

It’s free to download, so if it’s your sort of thing hit the App Store link below and get crackin’!

The Weather app for iPhone provides easy to see temperature and precipitation information for one or more locations, all at a glance. But what about humidity level? Chance of rain? Wind direction and speed? And what the temperature actually feels like when you go out? Luckily, Apple’s built-in Weather app provides all of that information as well. It’s hidden behind a gesture, but once you know it, you can get to all of it with just a simple tap.

How to switch to humidity, chance of rain, wind speed and direction, and more in Weather for iPhone

  1. Launch the Weather from the Home screen of your iPhone.
  2. Tap the large temperature number at the top to switch to Humidity, Chance of Rain, Wind, and Feels like.
  3. Tap again to switch back.

Note: iOS 7 only. In iOS 8 all this information, and more, comes out from behind its gesture and is listed in plain sight, right at the bottom of the screen.

In search of the best iPad apps that let you access your desktop PC or Mac from anywhere? Let’s face it, sometimes as humans we can be forgetful. Ever walked into a meeting and realized that you didn’t remember to transfer a document or presentation you needed to your iPad? Or perhaps you forgot to email your finished lab assignment to yourself before leaving your dorm. Remote desktop apps for iPad let you take control of your computer, or someone else’s if given permission, in order to view and transfer files while on the go. If you get work done both behind a desk and on your iPad, it’s not a bad idea to have a remote desktop app handy. These are currently the best remote desktop apps available in the App Store for iPad!

Screens VNC

Screens VNC is dead simple to set up and start using. Just install Screens on your iPad and on your desktop computer and you’re ready to fire up connections. Screens VNC has native apps for both iOS and Mac, but you can still create connections with Linux and Windows machines. Screens supports multiple displays too so if you have more than one hooked up to your Mac, it’s not a problem. There’s also support for shortcut keys, touch and trackpad modes, hot corners, AirPlay mirroring support, and more. Since Screens supports iCloud syncing, set up your computers on one of your iOS devices and you’ve got access from every device your iCloud account is linked to without any additional setup.

If you want a streamlined remote desktop experience, it doesn’t get much better than Screens VNC.

TeamViewer: Remote Control

TeamViewer is available on virtually any desktop platform you can think of including Mac, PC, and Linux. Once TeamViewer is running on your desktop computer, you can easily access your files on the go. TeamViewer also has support for multiple displays as well as wake-on-LAN functionality so you can access your desktop remotely even if it’s asleep. Since anyone can go to TeamViewer on the web, it’s a great tool for remote support too. Just direct someone to the website and they can give you an access code to quickly and easily take control of their desktop. The best part is that TeamViewer is completely free for private and personal use.

If you provide remote support to friends and family now and again, or only need sporadic access to your own desktop computers on the go, TeamViewer is a great choice.

Splashtop 2 Remote Desktop

Splashtop 2 is one of the more flexible remote desktop apps available for iPad. If you just want to access your files from your iPad, you should be good to go with a one time purchase. However, if you want more than that such as the ability to annotate on the screen, play games with a built-in game pad, and much more, Splashtop 2 gives you those options as additional in-app purchases. Without them you can still access your remote desktop anywhere, view files, and use any application installed on your computer just as you would on your desktop.

Splashtop 2 is a great option for those that need advanced features such as annotation and full support for gaming with a dedicated gamepad.

Currently on sale for a limited time for $ 4.99

iTeleport Remote Desktop

iTeleport is an incredibly powerful remote desktop app that gives you complete control over as many desktops as you’d like. Need support for international keyboards or Bluetooth keyboards? iTeleport supports them all and also offers SSH encryption for all platforms. There’s also wake-on-LAN support, multiple display capabilities, and tons more. And if you plan on using iTeleport for education, there’s even discounts available by contacting them directly. iTeleport also uses Google accounts for login which means there’s one less username and password for you to remember.

If you have multiple computers to access and manage, iTeleport gives you truly unlimited access to all of them.

Microsoft Remote Desktop

Microsoft Remote Desktop is Microsoft’s official remote desktop app for iPad.

If you’re workflow is heavily Windows based and don’t need a ton of advanced features, Microsoft Remote Desktop gets the job done.

What’s your next dream Mac? Find out!

Posted by On August - 8 - 2014

There are rumors of a Retina MacBook Air, of a 4K iMac or 4K Thunderbolt 2 Display, we’re still waiting on the Haswell Mac mini and some even hold-to-hope for an iOS MacBook Air that can detach into an iPad Air. So far this year Apple has only done minor processor bumps and price cuts to their existing Mac lineup. But what happens when we get whatever is coming next? That’s why we asked the question — What’s your next dream Mac?. Well, here’s what you answered!

Turns out, as of publication time, the largest number of you wanted a convertible MacBook Air/iPad Air combo device — something that likely only makes Microsoft sadder about the lack of Surface sales. (Or maybe they simply learned that such devices currently work better in our dreams than in reality?). With several thousand of you voting, here’s the breakdown:

Dozens of you took the time to elaborate on your votes as well. For the ones who want the transformable MacBook Air/iPad Air, good news — you can pretty much have that today with the existing iPad Air and a good keyboard case. Though that clearly won’t satisfy everyone:

I’m still holding out for my MacBook / iPad hybrid. :) But it has to be able to do everything I want it to do. I need the full *nix-based OS X when I need it, and I want iOS when I want it. ;)

And hell, if I can run iOS apps inside OS X when it’s in OS X mode that would be pretty fantastic Apple. :D

I am willing to pay a fair (near what the combined price for a MacBook / iPad is) for this magical device filled with rainbows and unicorns.

The Retina MacBook Air still fascinates a large amount of people as well, even if expectations can run too high at times:

I honestly think a MacBook Air with an IPS screen, slightly better graphics, support for dual monitors and that doesn’t overheat would be a pretty perfect computer. The Air gets way too hot when gaming. I hate the viewing angles but don’t mind the resolution of the screen. The graphics are descent but no where near dedicated. I don’t expect integrated to be as good but just a little closer would be nice. And I hate only being able to run one external monitor. An extra Thunderbolt port or HDMI/DVI port would be such a huge deal for me.

If all of these things were true I could probably get rid of my desktop altogether.

Not many seemed into the idea of 4K iMacs or displays, but some did want them for detailed graphics work:

‘d rather a iMac 4K display cause I would like to use it to see every detail on my drawings 3D modeling etc. though some kind of MacBook/iPad hybrid (not quite Air/iPad Air but like Pro/iPad) but that maybe asking a lot

Others feel 4K from Apple isn’t likely anytime soon:

It’s tricky. Looking at the panel market, high quality 4k panels (and a 2x 27″ iMac or TB display would be even more than 4k) still go for more than $ 2.3k, and that’s only the panel. The cheaper 4k displays all compromise on something (gamut, refresh rate, viewing angles etc.). So, we look at either something extremely expensive, or something below current standards. I guess the device everybody would want (somewhat affordable and high quality) is still not in the cards there. A Retina Air with acceptable battery life will have to wait because of Intel…

Somehow the recent MBA and MBP price cuts / spec improvements make me believe that we won’t see much in terms of Macs for most of the rest of the year.

The Mac mini is still a favorite, desperately so:

Mac Mini!!!!! Where are you????

I’m good with the current size and shape. Don’t mess with that because there are those who have rack mount solutions in place for these as they are used as servers.

  • Add PCIe capability to it (that’s fine), but I can continue to live with SATA-III SSD.
  • I actually use BOTH drive bays currently in my 2011 model, but having two PCIe slots would be a performance boost (awesome).
  • A better graphics chipset option so that we can play games at higher frame rates and resolutions (AMD or NVidia) which would also support UHD.
  • Latest Intel processors
  • Support for 32gb ram or 64 (for those folks who need this) << Makes for a great DB server

On a “like to have” note. Perhaps offer it in two colors (same as iPod Classic: Black or Silver).

And some even want a Mac mini maxi:

What about a “Mac Medium”?! Mac Pro chassis, mobo/daughter boards, “thermal core” & connections but with i7 instead of Xeon & desktop GPUs instead of workstation? I would also accept “classic” SATA SSD & non-ECC ram.

As long as the next Mac Mini checks off that wishlist I’ll be happy. It would be nice if the soon to be announced Mac Mini had broadwell, but that’s not Apple’s fault.

Either way, I voted for Mac Mini. My 2010 Mac Mini is really hurting these days, and it’s sole purpose in life is iPhoto & iTunes. (Upgraded RAM & SSD)

My guess remains we’ll see the Retina MacBook Air-style machine when Broadwell materializes. I’m not sure what the holdup is with the Haswell Mac mini, but I’m waiting just like everyone else. 4K will come when panel cost and yield fit within Apple’s requirements. Whether that means they ship first in the iMac, as usual, or Apple switches things up and goes for Thunderbolt 2 Display for premium Mac Pro customers first is harder to say.

As for hybrid iOS/OS X machines, 5 or 10 years from now that’ll seem like an old-fashioned idea, won’t it?

If you haven’t voted yet, go vote now and check out the other comments while you’re there. Then let me know — is there a Mac, any Mac, that if Apple announced it tomorrow you’d order it immediately?

Following roughly a week of user reports on the Skype support forums, Microsoft has confirmed (in an awkward way) that Skype will no longer support users running OS X version 10.5.8 or older. Skype’s official response to user complains explained that Skype still works on OS X 10.6 and higher, and encouraged all of its users to stay up-to-date with the latest version of OS X and Skype.

Users are finding different work arounds that include downloading previous versions of the app and using apps to restrict Skype’s access to the internet to stop automatic updates, but nothing really beats having proper support from Skype.

Considering for a moment that Mavericks runs on MacBook Pros and iMacs from 2007 onward, and MacBook Airs from 2008 and onward, though — with Snow Leopard (10.6) support going further back than that. You have to have a pretty old machine to be “stuck” on OS X 10.5.8 and unable to run Skype. That said, it definitely doesn’t hurt any less if you’re someone who relies on Skype and a Leopard machine.

WWDC 2015 speculated to kick off June 8, 2015

Posted by BMetts On August - 7 - 2014
Featured Image

Apple doesn’t pre-announced their World Wide Developers Conference (WWDC), but they do have to schedule the traditional Moscone West venue and any and all other logistics involved in hosting 6000 of its closest developer and designer friends. That leaves a week-long gap in Moscone’s schedule, and that leads to people speculating any such gap in June might be for WWDC. Such is the case for the week of June 8, 2015. Macrumors did the sleuthing:

Apple’s 26th annual Worldwide Developers Conference will most likely commence on June 8, 2015, and last through June 12, 2015, according to dates blocked out on the Moscone Center’s 2015 summer schedule.

The June 8 to 12 time period reserved at Moscone West also coincides with a multi-year convention calendar for the San Francisco Convention and Visitors Bureau that was discovered in 2010. Thus far, the listed dates, which cover potential WWDC events from 2010 to 2015, have been accurate for the past four conferences.

WWDC 2015 would likely include the first public looks at iOS 9, OS X 10.11, and more.

Of course, we’ll likely not get any official word on the dates until April 2015, and while past behavior is often the best indicator of future behavior, Apple can and sometimes does change things up.

So, if you’re tempted to make plans, keep ‘em flexible.

Apple and Samsung announced in a joint statement that they have agreed to end patent litigation outside the US. The two companies have been engaged in patent disputes in nine countries outside the US, including Australia, Japan, South Korea, Germany, Netherlands, UK, France and Italy.

Both organisations have been at loggerheads with one another over alleged patent fraud — Apple claimed that Samsung copied its iPhone design, while Samsung hit back stating that Apple infringed upon its wireless transmission patents.

Patent litigation will continue between the two smartphone giants in the US as Samsung and Apple have announced that they will not be venturing into any licensing agreements in the country. Apple already managed to secure over $ 1 billion in damages in two patent related lawsuits thus far in the US, one in 2012 for $ 929 million and the other earlier this year for $ 120 million.

Both Samsung and Apple combined have accounted for 107.2 million smartphone shipments in the second quarter of 2014, with Samsung selling 74.5 million handsets and the Cupertino giant 35.2 million devices worldwide. The move to bring an end to their patent litigation outside the US stems from the fact that neither organization has managed to secure an outright victory thus far. While there doesn’t seem to be an end in sight for the patent disputes within the US, today’s settlement at least shows that both organisations are willing to negotiate to a certain extent.
