Reviews for the New iphone in July

Compares New Iphone to be release with old.

-32GB and 16GB to replace current capacities
This upgrade in storage is very plausible and is almost expected. Last year, the iPhone 3G was introduced with capacities that were double that of its predecessor. It stands to reason this would occur again with the natural progression of the technology. This increase in storage has also been reported by several news outlets.

-Current subsidized price-points to be maintained
There has been a lot of speculation that Apple may attempt to reduce the price of the iPhone in an attempt to gain market share or battle the upcoming Palm Pre. With these new features, including an OLED screen, it seems unlikely they can lower the price points. At the same time when the iPhone 3G was introduced at the subsidized price, it sold in record numbers. To increase the price now would not likely be in Apple’s best interest from a sales-volume perspective. All things considered it seems likely that the prices won’t come up or down. Given Apple’s track record of upgrading products without raising prices, it is safe to assume that prices of the iPhone will more than likely remain the same.

-3.2 Megapixel camera
According to our source, the new iPhone will take much better and clearer pictures. This will likely be achieved by offering the ability to focus the lens as a new feature. This has also been reported by multiple sources, and therefor seems very credible.

-Video recording & editing capabilities
The iPhone finally having the ability to record video seems possible given the strong demand. But the ability to edit the videos you record on the iPhone itself? This feature has been in multiple rumor reports, however it seems highly questionable. If the ability to edit pictures was already present it would lend credence to this rumor. All of this considered, our source says video editing on the device will be implemented.

-Ability to send a picture & video via MMS
Sending MMS messages is one of the most anticipated features expected in the upcoming revision. This ability was officially announced alongside the iPhone OS 3.0 roadmap. With the capability of sending pictures via MMS it would make sense that you could also send video. It was already announced that voice memos will be able to be sent, so video is a natural extension. The size limitations of videos in MMS was not available to our source.

-Discontinuation of the metal band surrounding the edge of the device
This detail is of little concern, but it may suggest significant design changes.

-OLED screen
An OLED display would be a welcome change from the LCD screen the current iPhone utilizes. The main benefit of using an OLED screen used on the iPhone is a possible increase in battery life. Its difficult to judge the accuracy of this rumor; it would certainly be an excellent choice for the display, however OLED screens are relatively expensive at this time and my prove difficult to transition to while lowering or even maintaining the iPhone’s current price point. The source did not detail if the new OLED screen would come with a 640 x 960 resolution. (note: this resolution is what would be expected to maintain backwards compatibility with applications currently deployed)

-1.5X The battery life
Improved battery, possibly as a result of the OLED display; this may also be due to improved battery technologies. We always hope for battery improvements in a new model and with the new features it is likely to expect better battery performance.

-Double the RAM and processing power
According to our source, the next generation iPhone will have “roughly double the RAM and processing power.” He elaborated by explaining that the increase in processing power would be partially achieved through over-clocking.

-Built-in FM transmitter
It’s unclear why Apple would ultimately introduce this into the iPhone. Currently, none of Apple’s products include an activated FM transmitter. This feature has been rumored by other news outlets. We just don’t understand why - we didn’t buy a Zune for a reason.

-Apple logo on the back to light up
Our source described this feature as being similar to the illuminated Apple logo on the back of the notebook line. The light will be white and always on while the phone is powered on. There have been no reports of this to date, and it seems to be an odd cosmetic choice. Frankly, if iPhone users had a choice between an Apple logo light and increased battery performance, it’s an easy guess as to what users would choose. Due to the battery considerations this seems hard to believe.

-Rubber-tread backing
Another significant design change, our source described this as being “similar to the back of a blackberry.” It would be similar to a blackberry in that instead of smooth plastic back, the new iPhone would have a treaded rubber-type back. This would certainly provide a better grip, as well as may devastate the third party iPhone case market.

-Sleeker design
Our source was not able to be more specific. He mentioned this in passing while describing the cosmetic changes regarding the metal band and rubber back.

-Built-in compass
A digital compass is a new feature to be added as well. Naturally, the purpose of a compass is to show you what direction you are facing. This certainly seems like a reasonable add-on and has been reported previously.

-Revolutionary combination of the camera, GPS, compass, orientation sensor, and Google maps
The camera will work with the GPS, compass, orientation sensor and Google maps to identify what building or location you have taken a picture of. We at first had difficulties believing this ability. However, such a “feature” is technically possible. If the next generation iPhone was to contain a compass then all of the components necessary to determine the actually plane in space for an image taken. The GPS would be used to determine the physical location of the device. The compass would be used to determine the direction the camera was facing. And the orientation sensor would be used to determine the orientation of the camera relative to the gravity. Additionally the focal length and focus of the camera could even assist is determining the distance of any focused objects in the picture. In other words, not only would the device know where you are, but it could determine how you are tilting it and hence it would know EXACTLY where in space your picture was composed. According to our source, Apple will use this information to introduce several groundbreaking features. For example, if you were to take a picture of the Staples Center in Los Angeles, you will be provided with a prompt directing you to information about the building, address, and/or area. This information will include sources such as wikipedia. This seems like quite an amazing service; and a little hard to believe, however while the complexity of such a service may be unrealistic, such is actually feasible with the sensors onboard the next generation iPhone.

-Turn by turn directions
Although a hot topic since iPhone 2.0, this has yet to be officially introduced to Apple’s Maps app. Previous reports have specified that Google maps could not be utilized due to licensing issues, however our source claims that these issues have recently been overcome and will be available in the OS 3.0 software. While this would be an exciting leap for the iPhone, its very questionable that this would be completely true.
-July 17th release date

Info on New Iphone

Breaking News on the iphone set to be released in 2009

The UK mobile phone network O2 who has had the exclusivity agreement with Apple and its iPhone might be about to end in 2009. This could be a huge blow to Telefonica-owned O2, as having the iPhone smartphone as an exclusive has been key to its success.
You have to wonder if O2 had already knew that Apple were thinking of allowing other UK networks the right to offer the iPhone, as they have since signed a deal with Palm to offer its Prehandset. IT Pro Portal reports that the agreement between O2 and Apple was not meant to run out until 2011, but it looks as though rivals in the UK are going to push Apple on the matter.
The iPhone has proved popular in the two years that it has been available in the UK, and offering the handset to more than one carrier willl be a big boost for Apple in these troubling times. Apple have seen a reduction in profits in key areas of its business, it is the sales of the Apple iPhone that has helped give them a steady income, so offering the new iPhone to other carriers in the UK could be the best decision that they have ever made.

Iphone of 2009

New 2009 iPhone and mobile video chat

Apple looks set to release the best iPhone yet; there have been so many rumors about what the new smartphone will offer in the summer of 2009. One such rumor is that the new iPhone will offer mobile video chat capability, which is supported by MMS.
The list of specs keeps growing each day; some of the other rumored specs will be a massive blow to the Palm Pre. One of the best new features is that Apple are dropping the 8GB model in favor of the 16GB and upping the higher storage model to 32GB. Computerworld have raised a good question, why “doesn’t Apple have an expansion card slot for unlimited storage capability.”
Apple might have missed out on something here, if the new iPhone will now come with video capability, then users will be storing huge amounts of date on their handsets. Unlimited storage capability is a must.

Key SAT scores: Better understanding of your SAT score.

Understanding Your Scores

In addition to your scores, your SAT score reports also include percentiles and score ranges. Admissions staff use the percentiles and ranges to evaluate the scores because no single score can tell everything about how you performed on the test. Keep in mind that colleges use more than your SAT scores when making admissions decisions. Your high school record is most important, and colleges may also consider essays, recommendations, interviews, and your involvement in extracurricular activities.

SAT Reasoning Test

What is a good SAT score, SAT scores are reported on a scale from 200-800, with additional subscores reported for the essay (ranging from 2-12) and for multiple-choice writing questions (on a 20-80 scale). Your scores tell college admissions staff how you did compared with other students who took the test. For example, if you scored close to the mean or average—about 500 on SAT critical reading and 500 on SAT mathematics—admissions staff would know that you scored as well as about half of the students who took the test nationally.

SAT Subject Tests

All currently administered Subject Test scores are reported on a scale from 200-800, with Subject Test subscores being reported on a scale from 20 to 80. Reading and listening subscores are reported for all Language Tests with Listening, and a usage subscore is also reported for the Chinese, Japanese, and Korean tests. The English Language Proficiency Test™ (ELPT™), which was last administered in January 2005, is reported on a scale from 901 to 999 with subscores that are reported on a scale from 1 to 50. Your scores tell college admissions staff how you did compared with other students who took the test.

Key SAT Scores: Understanding SAT scores

Average SAT Score: How Your SAT is Scored.

Raw vs. Scaled

In order to reach the number you see on your score report,

two calculations must take place.

First, your raw score is calculated. This is the number of points
you earned, based on the number of questions you answered correctly,
minus a fraction of the number answered incorrectly. Questions you
skipped are not counted and no points are subtracted for incorrect
Student Produced Response mathematics questions (grid-ins) on
the SAT Reasoning Test™.

SAT Reasoning Test™: Calculating the Raw Score

Each CORRECT answer: add (+) 1 point

Each WRONG answer for a

  • Multiple-choice question: subtract (-) 1/4 of a point
  • Student-produced response: no points subtracted

Each OMITTED question: no points subtracted

SAT Subject Tests™: Calculating the Raw Score

Each CORRECT answer: add (+) 1 point

Each WRONG answer for a

  • 5-choice question: subtract (-) 1/4 of a point
  • 4-choice question :subtract (-) 1/3 of a point
  • 3-choice question: subtract (-) 1/2 of a point

Each OMITTED question: no points subtracted

Scaled Score

Your raw score is then converted to a scaled score
(reported on a 200-800 scale) by a statistical process

called equating. Equating ensures that the different forms of the
test or the level of ability of the students with whom you are tested
do not affect your score. Equating makes it possible to make
comparisons among test takers who take different editions of the
test across different administrations.


Writing Section Subscores

The raw scores for the multiple-choice writing section are
converted to scaled scores that are reported on a 20-80 scale.
Every SAT Reasoning Test contains a 25-minute essay. The essay
subscore is reported on a 2-12 scale. (Essays that are not written
on the essay assignment, or which are considered illegible after
several attempts at reading, receive a score of 0.) Each essay is independently scored from 1 to 6 by two readers.These readers'
scores are combined to produce the 2-12 scale. If the two readers'
scores differ by more than one point, a third reader scores the essay.
The multiple-choice writing section counts for approximately 70% and
the essay counts for approximately 30% of your total raw score, which
is used to calculate your 200-800 score. For more information, visit the Scoring Guide.

Subject Test Subscores

Subscores on the Subject Tests are used to compute the total score,
but their individual contributions differ between the different tests. Subscores are reported on a 20-80 scale. For the French, German,
and Spanish with Listening tests, the reading subscore counts twice
as much as the listening subscore. For the Chinese, Japanese, and
Korean tests, subscores are weighted equally. For the Subject Test
in Writing (January 2005 and earlier) the multiple-choice subscore
counts twice as much as the essay subscore.

-Don't rush your selection. Consider all the answers to make the best choice.
-Use the context of nearby words to figure out unknown words.
-Don't overlook the reversing effect of negative words (like not) or prefixes (like un-).
-If you're really stuck for the meaning of a word, try to think of other words that have similar prefixes, roots, or suffixes.
-Eliminate choices in double-blank questions if the first word alone doesn't make sense in the sentence.
-Let transition words (like although and likewise) help suggest the best answer.

-You should base your answers to the questions solely on what is stated or implied in the passages.
-Read the italicized introductory text.
-Skip questions you don't know. Return to them after answering other easier questions.
-First and last sentences of each paragraph are critical.
-Find the right spot in a passage by using any line reference numbers that appear in the questions.
-Answer questions on familiar topics before unfamiliar topics.
-Read the passages before reading the questions.
-Don't waste time memorizing details.
-Passage content comes from the Humanities, Social Science, Science, and Literal Fiction.
-Some passages are presented in pairs. Read the brief introduction first to see how they relate.
-Spend more time on answering the questions than on reading the text.

-Write a short (about 250-300 words), persuasive essay on an assigned topic.
-Keep in mind the structure of an essay - 5 paragraphs consisting of an: Introduction, Body (about 3 paragraphs), Conclusion
-The alloted time frame is 25 minutes. Read the essay question quickly and think about the topic (about 5 minutes). Allow most of your time (about 15 minutes) to write the essay. Spend the remaining 5 minutes reviewing and editing your work.
-Introductory Paragraph should state the position that is being taken. It should also state about 3 points that support this position.
