More RAM is more important than Processor

Intel Processors Comparison – Part 2 of 16

Intel During our discussion of finding a faster processor and comparison between different processors, it is important that first of all, we make sure that having more RAM is a must to have a great computing experience. Though processors are always busy and anything and everything that happens in your computer, needs to go through the CPU, importance of large RAM can never be neglected. So if you have a computer that you think is slow, simply go buy some more RAM and try out your good old PC performing much better. This is the cheapest way of improving your computing experience.

Intel Processors Comparison – Part 1 of 16

Core 2 Duo vs Core 2 Quad vs Core i7 vs Core i5 vs Core i3

Several people have been asking me this question and I had this research pending for a quite a few days now. In this article, I will discuss about the comparison between different processor technologies by Intel. This looks like a very technical question but when you go to buy a desktop or a laptop computer, this turns out to be a core question.

To make things look simple I’ve broken this introduction down into following topics. You can go ahead and read the section that interests you the most.

Android running on iPhone

This is big for me at least. This fellow has found a way to install a boot loader and install Android OS on iPhone. We all know that Apple’s iPhone has strong hardware capabilities but due to software restrictions, iPhone users have been deprived from a lot of features and functionality that they could use just by simple software ad-ons. With this hack, which obviously is not supported or accepted by Apple, a whole wide range of possibilities are in your hand. Check out the demo video.

Cant say Good bye to my N82

Noka N82
Nokia n82

N82 by Nokia, just a little over two years I was so excited to receive my new handset. An amazing dual processor phone with dedicated graphics processing unit, an amazing five mega pixel camera with Carl Zeiss lens and Xenon flash…… Series 60 3rd edition and a mono block, unlike N95.

It happens that after six months, you start feeling that your phone is too old for some of the features that you’d love to use but after a couple of years in case of N82, I don’t tend let go my phone. I have always been a Nokia fan but Nokia has unfortunately been slightly quiet in past couple of years. They have not released a phone that could make me thing of switching my handset. Just as a convention, I thought I’d rather change my handset now anyways.

My eyes got glittered and deceived by the Blackberries and Androids and I decided to say farewell to my beloved Nokia N82. Now I have an android based HTC G1 as well as the top of the line BlackBerry Bold 9700. No offense with these amazing handsets, but two weeks away from my N82, I am actually handicapped due to  two main reasons.

My very ordinary looking Nokia N82 has a set of features that are still unmatched by the latest smartphones today. In addition, the wide range of software that I keep using, well at least so far, has not been available on other platforms. The problem of the software can be solved gradually as the software becomes available for the new handsets, but the feature set has no match.

The Xenon flash, that usually comes in point and shoot digital cameras only has kept me enjoying night time photography with an accompanying Carl Zeiss lens, five mega pixel camera and a great camera software to support. Even the most recent phones don’t have such flash and all of them only depend on LED based flash, if a flash at all is there.

Unmatched multi-tasking all the time on N82, chatting on favorite IM services, surfing the web using at least 4 different browsers, downloading a few torrents over wifi, listening to Mp3 music all at the same time and a few more software standing by is a normal way how I use this phone. And this doesn’t happen that great on other handsets.

Showing off the photos and videos I took over the weekend to friends and family on the TV is another great feature I miss in my beloved N82. Dont BlackBerry owners need a presentation mechanism in their business phones? Come on, you could give a TV out for heaven’s sake.

I have a feeling, I may have to come back to my Nokia N82 till another phone comes out with such great features. Thank God I haven’t sold it out yet ­čśë
