These change the color and quality of the photos, making them less realistic but lending a different feel emotionally. Though professional photographers don't usually use preset applications, the everyday photographer might find the settings helpful to their technique. Not only that, but these types of cameras cost around $200 are typically small enough to carry in your pocket, and are sturdier than their more professional counterparts.

Swype is a solution to a problem many cell phone and smart phone users have today. That problem is slow typing which can be frustrating and annoying at times. Most people can hardly do 10 words a minute, but experienced texters are lucky to do 50 words a minute. Compared to how fast our minds can move, and how fast we can type on a computer, this number falls short of what we want. So, Swype was created, and it addresses that slow texting problem. Swype is similar to what the name implies, and that is that instead of tapping the screen with a stylus or finger, you slide or Swype the stylus across the screen to create words.

The implications of cloud computing is that you can access your information through a wireless phone, through a tablet PC, through a laptop PC, through a desktop PC, and basically any other device that connect through the internet at any time and sometimes at the same time. This allows you to watch movies or videos on your phone or any of your electronic devices, or view documents and edit them from the various electronic devices or in some cases, work on projects in the same way Google Docs works. It means that you can work with a number of people over the internet on the same document, meaning that instead of each creating their own and then someone piecing it all together, you can have everyone working on the same document at the same time.

There have been 3 iPad versions so far –the original, the iPad two and the third that just came out. Most people agreed that the iPad 2 wasn't different enough from the original to be worth the upgrade. The only upgrades were: the iPad 2 is thinner and lighter than the original –the original having a 13.4mm thickness and 680g (WiFi) or 730g (WiFi + 3G) weight, whereas the iPad 2 weighs 601g (WiFi) or 607g (Verizon) or 613g (AT&T) and has a thickness of 8.8mm. Well, here's some exciting news: the iPad 3 is! While it doesn’t offer any sort of aesthetic upgrade, or any external upgrade in the slightest, it boasts a huge rework of the innards and more geeky side of the product. It has faster graphics, comes with a camera (which is claimed to be as good as the iPhone 4S, one of the best smartphone cameras available). The newest iPad is also easier on the eyes, with better displayed text and imagery in general. It connects to the internet (and has a faster connection) and is generally a definite upgrade from the original iPad. If you already have the iPad 2, upgrading may be a more difficult choice –what if they come up with an even better version in a year or two, and you want that instead? Whether you should upgrade or not depends on how happy you are with your current one. If you enjoy taking pictures with your iPad but you find the quality frustratingly lacking, the iPad 3 will help. Similarly if you are a gamer you might prefer the superior graphics of the iPad 3. Then again, the iPad 2 already has very good
