Apple's 5K iMac, 14.7 Million Pixels



What is up people?

Apple's annual Keynote was a pretty nice event overall. We got to see some pretty impressive pieces of tech such as the iPad Air 2 and the iPad mini 3 with Retina display. But I think Apple's 5K iMac was the thing which caught a lot of people's attention.

Apple's new iMac features an incredible 27- inch display with an insane 5210 x 2880 resolution. Yep people that's 14.7 million pixels in total. Now I know that this is the type of display which a lot of video professionals and photographers would love to get their hands on. During Apple's Keynote the words which really stuck out to me were "You've never seen the level of detail that you'll see on the new iMac." 

The thing which I've always loved about the iMac is that everything is together with only that one cable running from the back of the display to the socket. It's a pretty cool idea if you think about it. You'll find a 3.5GHz Intel i5 processor in the new 5K iMac but for a pretty steep price you can bump that up to a 4GHz Intel Core i7 processor. 

Apple's new iMac with Retina display has a starting price of $2,499. If you do however decide to purchase the iMac you'll also receive 8GB of memory and a 1TB drive.

GTA Online "The Last Team Standing" Update



What is up people?

It is time for another update roundup and this time I am bringing you guys the latest info on Rockstar's brand new update which goes by the name of "The Last Team Standing". Over these past couple of months Rockstar have been rolling out their content like crazy. But did anyone else notice one thing? The day when Rockstar pushes out new content is usually a Tuesday. This time the DLC was released on a Thursday and who knows? Maybe they wanted to see how the people would respond or maybe they just had a really bad bug on their hands which they had to get rid of, in order to ensure a smooth experience for the player. Okay here's the update.

Update:

Vehicles: In this update you get three vehicles in total. One is a brand new Lampadati Furore GT, which features amazing handling, a pretty nice sounding engine and sadly there isn't much you can do in terms of customization. If you do plan on purchasing this vehicle I highly recommend modifying the engine. Trust me you'll need it.

The next two vehicles which are recurring vehicles from Grand Theft Auto V's predecessor The Lost and Damned are the Shitzu Hakuchou, which is a sweet sport bike and a LCC innovation chopper which sounds just as bad ass as it looks.

Weapons: Two new weapons are ready to hit the streets in this update. For all of you shotgun and sniper freaks out there I have some good news for you. Two new firearms are available the Heavy Shotgun which does some serious damage and the Marksman Rifle which can guarantee you a one shot kill. On top of that you get a bulletproof helmet, which means that your friend will no longer be able to shot you by "accident" in the head. You'll also get some new masks, tops and much more.

On top of everything which you have read here Rockstar have also added the Last team standing creator mode. Here you guys can create your own GTA online jobs where two teams fight to the end and there's no second chances, so think before you try and take out eleven opponents on your own.

Make sure to take part in the event weekend where you'll be able to take part in jobs such as Skyscraper, Paleto Bay-Tanks and much more.

2nd Generation iPad Air may be offered in Gold


What is up people?

When the first generation iPhone came out back in 2007 it was offered solely in the color black. As the years went by Apple began to experiment with different color options for its devices. It was proven in being a major success for the company as consumers all around the world suddenly began to demand colors such as white, space grey, silver and most recently gold. 

A device which has not yet been introduced to the color gold is the iPad. According to Bloomberg Apple will add a gold color option for it's full-size iPad in order to "boost a category which is in decline." To me it's not surprising at all that Apple is experiencing a decline when it comes to their tablet sales as the iPhone 6 plus features a pretty large 5.5" retina HD display. 

Apple is set to unveil their brand new 9.7-inch iPads at the end of this month and will more than likely include gold as a color of choice for the rear panel of the device. Hopefully this addition will boost Apple's sales slightly as in 2010 when the iPad was first introduced the company made $5 billion. That figure continued to grow rapidly and in 2012 that figure became $30 billion. Last year that figure only rose by a disappointing $2 billion, which clearly shows a decline in the tablet market. 

Apple's second generation iPad Air is also expected to feature Touch ID, a thinner design, improved cameras and a much faster processor.

App Review "Clear"


What is up people? 

I haven't done an app review in a really long time and it's something which I've been meaning to get back into. As a journalist, organisation and time management is crucial and oddly enough it is something which I have struggled with for a long period of time. I read a few articles here and there which were specifically created  for people who want to apply a better structure to their day. All of those articles had one thing in common and that was "Write down what you want to accomplish in a day."

It seemed pretty straightforward at first but I was never that pen and paper guy and I knew that an alternative to that would be my iPhone. I fired up the App Store and in the search bar I typed in the words "To-Do list". I got various apps which claimed to be easy and effective to use but sadly they weren't. I found it difficult to navigate through my tasks and oftentimes it took me more time to create the task than to actually do it. I knew there had to be something better out there and after a few rounds of trial and error I came across "Clear".

The first thing which caught my attention was the app's bright orange logo which is very pleasant to look at. I scrolled through a few preview images of the app and I already knew that it would be perfect.

Without hesitation I bought the app for $4.99 and within seconds I was creating events, adding reminders and deleting events which had been completed. The app also gives you the option to prioritize your events by dragging one event above the other. By simply swiping down you can create a new event and add a reminder which will also be present in the notification center. To be honest with you it is one impressive app and due to its simple design and ease of use it really allows people to get work done efficiently and helps them to focus on important tasks throughout the day.

I give "Clear" a perfect 10/10 as it has met all of my To-Do list needs and I'm sure that it is going to meet all of yours as well.

WordLoops website...coming soon

What is up people?

It's been a long time since I sat down and wrote something just for fun. I miss it though, I miss the feeling which I used to get when I pressed the keys on my keyboard. I miss the feeling of satisfaction and pride when I saw my view count go flying up because all of you people were enjoying the content which I produced. For a moment I was blind with photography and videos, but deep down inside, something wasn't right and that was I was born to be a writer. From a young age I promised myself that I would not be one of those people who hated what they were doing in life. I strongly believe in two words and those are "Just Live" That's why I got them tattooed on my arm. It's something which I want to be reminded of every single day. Don't overthink things, just do them. 

I was lost. And I started to notice that a few weeks ago. "Do I want to write? Do I want to take photos? Or do I want to make videos? I knew my only option was to go to the source which would suck the life out of me. My grandparents. I love my grandparents but let's just say they're very conservative. They never believed in me and still consider whatever I do as a child's game. They see me as a child. When I came back everything was clear to me I was born to be a writer, words run through my veins and it's a talent which I want to develop and take full advantage of. That's why I'm coming back stronger than ever and ready to bring you guys some awesome content. I know I'm a bit rusty but give me a few days and I'll be back with the highest quality content. I PROMISE. All of you people have been amazing supporting the site by commenting and sharing and that's why I want to finally launch the official WordLoops website which will only make my content more enjoyable and easier for you people to navigate through. I'll upload some photos which you people can check out to see what I've been up to. Follow me on Twitter for the latest game and tech news @WordLoops  and as always...

See you all soon !!!
