The New iPad

Hi Everyone! This will be my very first gadget review and let’s take a look at the astonishing new iPad, the one that started the tablet era.


The new iPad has a high resolution Retina display, a whopping 2048×1536 display on a 9.7inches screen. The images and videos are very crisp thanks to the astounding 3.1 million pixels and that is four times the amount of pixels compared to iPad 2.

Apple did a great job in improving each pixel by elevating it onto a different plane to separate it from the signals telling the pixels to light up.

The new iPad is equipped with A5X processor and 1GB ram for the resource-hogging Retina display which is much faster compared to the A5 processor that is running on 512mb ram. There is a confusion that the new iPad is running on a quad-core processor but the truth is Apple A5X still uses dual core processor for the ARM Cortex-A9 processing cores it uses just like the previous generation of A5. The battery life of the new iPad can last up to 10 hours depending on the usage. The new iPad also have a 5 megapixel which they call Isight camera that can shoot video up to 30 frames per second with 1080p resolution.


What do you think of the new iPad? 🙂

Most people are using the computer nowadays, it is essential for us to learn how to key-in the letters and numbers on the keyboard accurate and fast. Productivity is the main reason why we need to build up this skill. Practice plus proper knowledge on hand and finger keyboard positioning, good memory and proper sitting posture are the most important things to consider in increasing typing speed.

  1. Sitting position

You have to comfortably sit straight, avoid slouching while typing.  Chairs with ergonomic design will help provide comfort and protect your body posture.

2. Know your home keys

If you’re used to the “Dot System” wherein you only use 2-3 fingers to type on the keyboard, it is about time to utilize the other fingers by learning the home keys A, S, D, F, J, K, L and semicolon assigned to each finger, with the thumb situated on the space bar. As you type words, your fingers should be on the home row. Typing with correctness is needed  to be developed as you train to speed up your typing skills, at first it will seem to slow you down but eventually as you get used to the it, accuracy and rate will improve.

3. Memorize the keys and the use of shortcut keys

Familiarization on the position of the letters and keys on the keyboard is another important factor to consider in speedy typing. Use shortcut keys such as ctrl+v (paste), ctrl+c (copy), ctrl+x (cut), ctrl+s (save), ctrl+z (undo) and ctrl+y (redo) for your convenience and to save time.

4. Practice more often

There a lot of free typing softwares and online tools available for your typing exercises.  As much as possible allot a daily one hour practice for your typing session.  Record your speed. Words per minute or WPM is the unit used to measure our typing speed, wherein five characters is equivalent to one word. If you’re confused on how to get your WPM, just follow this formula:

Total words (5 characters = 1 word) divided by the number of minutes minus 2 for each error equals to Net words per min.

Practice makes perfect, surely in no time you’ll be a very good typist.  Good luck!
