Today, more people are bypassing the option of purchasing a new computer in favor of getting a refurbished one. Many individuals like this idea because they can get a computer that serves their needs while saving money in the process. Look at some examples of individuals who choose to get a refurbished computer instead of a new one.

College Students

Most college students use their computers every day and on the weekends. They may be doing research for an assignment or typing a paper for a class. A refurbished computer can fulfill the needs of a busy college kid without taking a big bite out of the student’s limited budget! Students can keep track of all of their assignments and not have to worry about losing or damaging a brand new computer bought for their time in school.

High School Kids

Like a college student, a high school student needs a computer to complete assignments and conduct research. A refurbished laptop is perfect for a high school student to take along to the library or to a friend’s house to study. Parents who choose to purchase a refurbished computer for their high school student don’t have to invest in a new computer. They know that a refurbished computer will give their high school student all of the tools he or she needs to complete assignments.

Work-at-Home Moms

A mom who works at home is a perfect candidate for a refurbished computer. Data entry, proofreading and freelance writing are just three examples of jobs done by a work-at-home moms. A refurbished computer is capable of helping a mom complete all of these tasks and more! Furthermore, work-at-home moms who have a strict household budget will not have to put forth the money to purchase a new computer. The refurbished computer can do all that she needs it to do! A work-at-home mom or any other individual in search of a computer may want to think about the option to buy used Apple computers at a discount.

Typists

Finally, a person who works as a typist only needs a word processor to accomplish the job. Refurbished computers are reliable and are capable of anything a new computer can do. A typist who is paid a modest salary will be able to do the work without investing an inordinate amount of money in a laptop.

A few days ago, when I read the headline of an article that Google surpassed Apple as the most valuable brand in the world, it did not surprise me. They were bound to catch up sooner or later.

Google has been innovating so many different things. While Apple? It cannot be denied that they were the first who took the bold step in producing touch screen devices but after that, they have been in a slow pace.

People keep saying because Steve Jobs had passed away that Apple has not been innovating after that. I do not agree.

Just like how computers came to be, the models have been the same ever since. Only the hardware kept upgrading.

This is the same case as smartphones and tablets and Apple has been stuck with these products.

True, they have made millions because of them but again, Google has many newer things and it is only fitting that their stock value rose up.

Congratulations Google! Here is hoping those exaggerated overpriced price tags of Apple devices go down. Not now for sure but in the long run, that could happen.

Blackberry manufacturer RIM has been taking a considerable battering in the smartphone market in the past 2 years. Their phone was once the sign of a successful business man who was on the bleeding edge of technology.

But nowadays, businesses have moved onto more advanced handsets offered by the likes of Samsung and Apple. Many people have claimed that this shift has marked the end of RIM, however on closer inspection this appears to be far from the truth.

Developing countries

Despite falling sales in Europe and North America, the Blackberry continues to control the market in countries such as India, Holland, Saudi Arabia and South Africa, among others. With India being one of the most rapidly expanding markets in the world, the Blackberry still has a chance of staying in the market if they choose their target market correctly.

Blackberry 10

There has been a lot of talk about the BB10 operating system. There are rumours that the latest operating system will be supported by handsets made by other companies as well, which could be a massive move by RIM to help it regain a market share in developed economies. This software licensing has only been rumoured, but it makes sense that Blackberry try and collaborate instead of compete in such a competitive market.

Blackberry 10 Handsets

Expected to drop in 2013, there is a little information floating about regarding the blackberry 10 handsets. One of the company’s largest failings has been its inability to provide handsets that can match other smartphones on the market. The Blackberry Curve deals with most everyday business needs, but lacks any processing power when compared to other smartphones currently on sale.

What we can tell by the information out there is that the new handsets will be technologically relevant. The screen resolutions have been released for both the touch screen and QWERTY models and they mark a huge improvement. The touch screen handset will have a resolution of 1280×1720 whilst the keyboard handset will be 720×720.

If these devices prove to be successful, we could see Blackberry reclaiming its crown. That being said, doubts have been voiced over varying screen resolutions, and how they may be off putting for app developers and cause compatibility issues.

RIM’s chief executive Thorsten Heins has recently been quoted saying that the Blackberry 10 will not only challenge Android and Apple devices, it will beat them. Only time will tell if this fighting talk means anything, but RIM can only hope their latest developments can turn their fortunes around.
