So What's With The New Iphone 4S?

Real Estate Agent with (512) 786-8300

Real estate is a business that is becoming more and more in touch with technology. For years, we in the business, have discussed the importance of technology, and what gadgets are necessary to provide our clients with the best service we can deliver. Perhaps I'm in the minority, but I believe anyting that makes us more efficient is worth a look. I happen to like Apple products, because I think they are able to give me the equivalent of a mobile office. Because of that, I upgrade my phone every year, and this fall, that means the Apple Iphone 4S. 

Kim Kommando, my favorite techology guru, explains the new Iphone 4s, in detail, in this informative video.

Scott, while I like some of the features, I still have a year left on my current iPhone4 contract. So, I guess I'll have to wait on the new iPhone 5 whenever it comes out. I still have the original iPad and will upgrade it when the iPad 3 is released.

Let me know what features you like best.

I recently swapped my iPhone 3GS with my daughter. Her ipod had died and I was looking to save the $300 on a new ipod. I purchased an iPad2 instead. I am finding the iPad2 does everything I used to do on my iPhone. Except, of course, making calls. I am using my daughter's inexpensive Pantech and am thinking I may have found a way to keep my expenses down. Having the iPhone and iPad is a little redundant? No?

Hey Scott, if you saw any of my blogs on the Droid you'd know I'm a Droid head. I watched this video because curiosity killed the 

I bought an ipad2 not realizing its a single platform - iTunes; I returned it the next day.  For those who use iPhones the iPad2 is probably best since it eliminates the need to learn a new product. I didn't' like that it wouldn't let me us Mozilla Firefox which is something I already know. I couldn't write comments because I couldn't differentiate between the others and mine, took too much time.

I will say that iPhone and iPad2 are easy to find help and accessories, and usually more attractive accessories too.  If you're a gamer, the 4s is good with 7 times the power of their previous version. But I'm into the cloud so Droid is best for me. That and I get miffed at proprietary platforms; it's a pet peeve.

Have a good one!

I pre-ordered mine last week and can't wait to get my hands on it.  I hope Siri works as good as the vids show.

Kim Komando is one sharp lady.  Love her show.  I don't listen often, only when she's on when I'm driving.

I haven't pre ordered my 4S yet, but it's only a matter of time. Improved speeds is really a draw. But the camera going to an eight megapixel, with stabilization is really cool. Just think of the good picture we can capture quickly for our blogs

Scott, technology is the way to go...ask any teen! Well even in grammar school they have iPhones and when I don't know how to work something this younger generation definitely does!
