Tablet, Phablet, Smartphone 2015

Last year at this time I wrote an extensive post on this topic. As expected there are big changes. Prices have dropped.

  • Nexus 6 smartphone $349
  • Amazon 7 ” Fire Tablet  – $50

More importantly apps have become more productive and entertaining.

  • Amazon Photo – Unlimited photo and video storage
  • Amazon Music – Tens of  thousands of popular songs
  • HBO Now – Latest series and movies
  • Medium –  A new publishing forum from the creators of Twitter
  • What’s App – Free texting and phone calls
  • Pocket Casts – Listen to public radio and podcasts all over the world
  • OK Google / Siri – Search assistants to explore the web
  • 4K Video – Broadcast quality movies


The smartphone has now become your computer, camera and messaging appliance that fits in your pocket or purse.




Video Sharing Services – YouTube

How popular is your YouTube(Google owned) video? YouTube is the second most visited web site after I upload 90% of my videos to YouTube for the following reasons:

  • Universal recognition around the world
  • Easy and intuitive User Interface
  • Free and unlimited storage including High Definition
  • Superb analytics

It’s the 4th bullet point I want to briefly discuss in the screenflow video below and a certain beautiful Moluccan Cockatoo is the reason for many of my views.
