eBay is a great portal where anybody can find so many great deals in just about anything. I am sure recently you heard about the iPhone 6’s release in September. Bet you are as giddy as everybody else, huh? Now is the best time to upgrade.

Well, I have written some eBay guides which you can find useful to help you with your decision if the iPhone 6 is really the phone for you.

One of the guides I wrote talks about one of the iPhone 6’s strong features, the camera. You can visit the guide Camera Features of the iPhone 6 That Make A Photographer Happy to know more about it.

Now, if you truly are decided in getting one, this is the best time to do so. Sell your old phone in eBay and use that money to get yourself a new iPhone 6.

If you are still new to eBay and have no idea on how to use the service, I wrote a guide for it titled How To Score The Most Cash For A Phone In eBay. It contains some tips on the best possible ways to get the most cash from things you sell.

androidWith everything from smartphones to iPads being sold in store and via sites like  it poses the question – are Android tablets driving the adaptation of laptops in emerging markets?

Well, let’s start with Windows 8. With its dramatic new style, bold Live Tiles, innovative Start screen (replacing the traditional Start button and menu of Windows 7) and a host of incorporated applications, it’s clear that Microsoft has made an epic attempt to bring Windows into the new world. A world of touchscreen mobile computing that’s taking the world by storm.

Not only was it designed for tablets, but for traditional PCs as well, which led to mixed reviews. While some people loved the clever new software and touchscreen capabilities, others criticised it for being over complicated and difficult to use, particularly with a keyboard and mouse. This led to the first revamped edition being released in October 2013, aptly named Windows 8.1.

Like all reputable technology companies, Microsoft listened to the feedback from its consumers and made various attempts to make its revolutionary new technology more user friendly. Not only did they reintroduce the Start button (with the traditional Start menu thought to be planned for Windows 8.2), but they also improved many of the applications.

The photo app, for instance, now came with many editing tools and users could choose from a wealth of other customization options. In short, Microsoft worked hard to make their innovative Windows release more appealing.

As well as Windows 8, many hybrid laptops also seem to have been inspired by Android tablets. Not only do they offer the practicalities of a regular laptop, they are also available with a full-functioning touchscreen offering the best of both worlds. They can be docked (ready to use with a keyboard and mouse) or used on the go providing users with a range of options!

The downside? Some are slightly heavier than traditional tablets making it more difficult to hold them for long periods of time and others don’t have the full capabilities of a traditional laptop. Other than that, they’re a great compromise for anyone that enjoys touchscreen technology but also prefers to type longer documents using a keypad.

What’s more, with the introduction of iCloud storage – a development which lets you access photos, documents, videos and more from whatever device you’re on – it’s now more tempting than ever to purchase devices with this functionality to allow for more flexibility. So, if you have an iPad, you might also want a hybrid laptop or an android inspired device to make working that little bit easier.

So while there’s still a place on the market for trustworthy desktops and standard laptops, it seems more devices are going down the lightweight, touchscreen route with clear Android influences.

Kickstarter is really a haven of new ideas. My first pledge was of the Muku Shuttr. After I watched the video, I knew I had to get one.

Muku Shuttr is the world’s slimmest remote camera control that is compatible for the iPhone, iPad, Samsung Galaxy S4/S3, Notes 2, LG Nexus 4. No app is needed to use this. Only bluetooth is required.

Other new phones may be on the works so this remote control can be compatible.

So what use can the Muku Shuttr give you? Doing selfie shots for example. You can just place the camera in front of you and do the pose that you want without the hassle of having to extend your arm just to take a good shot of yourself.

Muku Shuttr is designed to solve all these problem by resting in your keychain and allow you to take photo with yourself, your friends and your kids anytime you want.

Taking photos using the remote control is not just its only use. You can use it as a Powerpoint remote. Just pair up with you computer (Mac / Windows), switch the Shuttr to Android mode. And it works right the way.

This project had already been funded so if you want to get one yourself, you will have to go to their official site and purchase it there.

Here is my actual Muku Shuttr that I just received. It worked great when I tested it on a Samsung Galaxy S3 but this will be used by my wife’s iPhone device. The remote certainly worked well. It can even control the zoom in and zoom out features of the camera.

Make sure you place the back stand of your camera at the right place so you can get the perfect angle when you place your smartphone on any surface. Once everything is in place, let your trigger happy fingers do their thing ;).
