Well It’s been a while !

Well Its been a while
It has been a considerable amount of time since i uploaded a new blog post it has been the busiest and most hectic few months of my life.

On the 21st of January i started my advanced apprenticeship with Shape Creative based in St martins square Leicester. My apprenticeship is officially in Social & Digital marketing. However i have gained so many new skills and expanded my view on what marketing is. Previous to working at shape i was solely focused on social media marketing, strategies,platforms and integrating the latest tech into all of them.

A New Train of thought
Since i started my apprenticeship i have completely changed my view on marketing and my mind set has changed for the better. i now have a strong understanding of not only Social media marketing but i have vastly improved my knowledge of my industry over the last 3 months i have put in a Herculean effort to learn the ropes of how a creative studio works. i have began to learn to code HTML and css and will shortly be moving on to app development for iOS and Android. I was quite surprised how fast my HTML and CSS skills developed i went from knowing very little to creating HTML content that went on to clients live sites in the space of a few days. Aside from these technical aspects i have learn’t to create high quality reports for customers as well as SDA reports and i have just recently the journey in to In-depth product descriptions and copy-writing i greatly under estimated how hard product description writing would be, I’m glad to say i have improved greatly at writing them now.

By far the biggest change in my tech life is the change i made from PC to Mac
i never thought id prefer the Mac platform and I’m still not a 100% sold as I’m a bit of a sucker for windows 8 in all fairness but that’s a post for another time.

To conclude this post.
I have learn’t so much so fast it’s hard for me to express via this blog post
i am committed to getting my skills to an intermediate level by the end of the year and i hope to get an advanced skill set within a few year.

Apple Unveils the IPad Mini

Apple Ipad mini

Apple just announced their 7.9-inch iPad mini and is now officially ready to enter the fight in the ultra portable tablet market.

The Ipad Mini comes in both black and white. The 7.9 inch screen with 4:3 aspect ratio gives the iPad mini a size advantage over its 7-inch competitors. The area measures 29.6 square inches to 21.9 on a 16:9 7-inch tablet. It has the same resolution as the original iPad & iPad 2, at 1,024 x 768.

The iPad mini has an A5 chip which is the equivalent of the current iPod touch. It has a front-facing FaceTime 720p camera, with 5-megapixel camera in back. It also includes Apple’s new Lightning connector, which first debuted on the iPhone 5. The Ipad Mini weighs in at 10.9 ounces, the iPad mini is less than half the weight of the full-size iPad. And is  just 0.28 of an inch thick.

The iPad mini pricing for the U.S. is

16 GB Wi-Fi only – $329

16 GB 4G LTE – $459

32GB Wi-Fi Only – $429

32GB 4G LTE – $559

64GB Wi-fi only -$529

64GB 4G LTE – $659

Pre-orders begin Oct. 26. Wi-Fi devices ship Nov. 2, and the cellular models will come about two weeks later. Also The popular smart cover is getting shrunk as well for the new iPad, with multiple colors offered, including blue, green, pink and black.

Apple – Ipad 4

Apple Ipad 4

Everyone expected today’s Apple event to be all about the iPad mini, but as it turned out Apple unveiled the fourth generation of its iPad iOS-running tablet which has surprised everyone.

The iPad 4 features a new A6X chip LTE for mobile versions and faster Wi-Fi This is the same chip that is in the new iPhone 5 and is supposed to be twice as fast as the iPad 3.

The iPad 4 has the same 10 hour battery as the now-obsolete iPad 3 the iPad 4 will sell for the same price as the ipad 3. Here are the U.S. pricing’s

16GB Wi-Fi – $499

16GB LTE- $629

32GB Wi-Fi – $599

32GB LTE – $729

64GB Wi-Fi – $699

64GB LTE – $829

Undoubtedly, this is a great device for new iPad owners (or iPad 2 owners) — but for iPad 3 owners, the feeling is a bit bittersweet. The iPad 2 will also stick around – it will retail, starting at $399 now. Shipping of the Apple iPad 4 Wi-Fi units starts on November 2, with the LTE-packing ones coming two weeks later.
