As the saying in the World Wide Web goes no juice they are all tablets. Your head buzz from all the beatings it got from those oozing press releases about the latest in iPad, the wonder Kindle Fire and the lukewarm Blackberry Playbook. They may be all tablets but each is a tablet on its own.

Let’s take the apple iPad this is the great old ancestor of these trendy tablets; trust apple to always come first in anything techy. This is the one most desired by many technology savvy personas including yours truly. There are so many things you can do with this apple iPad away from your desk tops and laptops that you’ll feel bereft without it after owning one. The only con for the apple iPad is it doesn’t support Flash. All the others; uses Flash on their tablet. One other thing is it has no front facing camera and cannot support video chat. This also has no support for sending messages because it can only connect to Wi-Fi and not to 3G.  You can never multi task with an iPad.

Then let us do the kindle fire turn in the pit. Grilling the kindle fire will reveal flaws or heighten its spitting image more. The kindle fire by Amazon the newest addition to the family is still in infancy or shall I make it a little mature “a kid”. Amazon’s first tablet the kindle fire has been recently launched in the market without much ado, unlike the buzzing electrifying wait for the release of the iPad. This latest genetic generation of the tablet has a promising future or like the rest of Amazon’s wonder child will die a slow death. This is powered by Amazon’s promise that battery life is akin to immortal’s life or somewhat a little lesser. This is also supporting the Flash which apple has banned for their iPads. This also sports the Amazon’s latest browser that makes downloads a breeze.

We’ll do the blackberry playbook last but not as the least. This tablet shows a lot of multi-tasking features. Its speed makes email sending and updates like an expressway cruise. Managing accounts and communication is a love dance. This blackberry playbook belies its name but validates every online workers dream. This packs all the jack of all trades productivity dream. This features the most ultimate in reliability operating system. Just connect your blackberry smartphone with your blackberry playbook and use the smartphone as keyboard and mouse. With your blackberry playbook you can send messages and video chat. And you have to go visit someone in the great rural wilderness who is out on vacation you wouldn’t get lost with it GPS navigation system. This is great for business and work.

You have one or the three; nothing else you’ve missed. One is slightly higher priced than the other and one offers lesser features. Just choose what work best for you and go buy the hottest addition, the slightly hot or the ultimate hot. Which is which it’s up to you.

 

 

 

 

Stocks stay positive for the whole week

by jscreationzs

For the first time in a long time, we have had a full week of growth in the stock market. I honestly don’t remember the last time where the stock market went up every day for five straight days. Today marked the 5th straight day of winning in the stock market. Although I wouldn’t call today’s upward motion of the stock market a “rally” but it was still a positive days. Most stocks went up (although some still suffered losses) which resulted in another day of win in the sock markets all around the world.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average today finished with a gain of almost 76 points. It is over the 11,500 mark and it is getting closer and closer to our targeted 12,000 mark. There is still a long way to go and this weeks Rally of the stock market (after the 3 day slump we saw the week earlier), could trigger another sell off by investors because they may use this opportunity to sell at a moderately high price. Hopefully that won’t happen and investors continue to invest in businesses which would be great for everyone.

The NASDAQ Composite gained more than 15 points finishing at over 2,622 points. The S&P 500 Gained almost 7 points making this week the biggest gains for this Index since July. Currently the S&P 500 is at 1,216. And finally, the NYSE gained more than 19 points, finishing at 7,348 points.

Overall, today was a great day for the market. This turned out to be a great week for the market. I was hoping that the updraft in the market would stick for the whole week and it did. I had my doubts, especially earlier this week when we received bad news from Greece defaulting as well as losses here in the US. At first it seemed as if the negative trend from the prior week would continue into this week and I’m glad it didn’t. The little hope that we saw at the end of the Market day this past Monday triggered the rallies that we have seen all week long all around the world.

Lets hope that the momentum continues and goes over to next week and the following weeks to come. If consumers and investors keep doing what they have been doing this week, we will be on our way to economic recovery in no time. And if President Obama’s Stimulus plan actually gets passed and this time, actually works, we may see the unemployment numbers decline greatly in the next year. It would be great for President Obama with his reelection coming up and of course, it’ll be great for everyone else in the country as well.

Not all stocks prospered this week. I mentioned Netflix (NFLX) yesterday and how it dropped nearly 20 percent after reporting a loss of more than a million subscribers thanks to their new pricing. Netflix’s (NFLX) negative momentum carried over to today and it saw another big drop. This time a drop of over 8.3%, or $14 per share. It is getting closer and closer to its 52 week low. The drop wasn’t as big today as yesterday which could be a good sign that the drop will eventually stop and then slingshot back upwards. It won’t be the first time we have seen that and I won’t be surprised if Netflix recovers just as quickly. It is still a huge company with a lot of stock power in the market, I don’t think Netflix is going anywhere any time soon.

One stock that rallied and had a great day today was Amazon (AMZN). Amazon gained more than 5.5%, or $12.50 per share. It’s current price is $239.30. This week turned out to be pretty good for Amazon and the news from Netflix helped Amazon grow as well.

Unlike last week, I’m glad to saw that this week ended on a very positive note. Lets hope that everything continues into the coming weeks. The holidays are approaching soon and if we can get consumers to spend and investors to invest more, we should be able to pull ourselves out of the recession that we put ourselves in several years ago. Keep a positive mind out and we’ll be out of trouble in no time!

What do you think will happen to the stock market in the coming weeks? Will we be able to go over the 12,000 mark soon? Or will we plummet back below the 11,000 mark that we have fought for this week?
