Apple iPhone 5 Price, Features

        Apple launched the iPhone 5S & the iPhone 5C amidst huge hype and brouhaha over its features and pricing, most of which were already leaked out pretty accurately. We bring to you all the information you would need to know about the iPhone 5S & iPhone 5C.   Apple iPhone 5S Features & Pricing in India Display & Body The display on the iPhone 5S remains the same at 4.0 inches with a pixel density of 326 ppi. As expected, the design is also the same as the iPhone 5. 64 bit A7 chip and M7 motion co-processor The iPhone 5S comes with the new A7 chip which Apple claims to be the world’s first 64 bit desktop-class architecture in a smartphone. Apparently Huawei Ascend D Quad launched in Feb 2012 last year also boasted of a 64 bit chipset. M7 motion coprocessor gathers data from the accelerometer, gyroscope and compass to offload work from the A7 for improved power efficiency. Apple has allowed developers’ access to the new CoreMotion APIs that take advantage of M7, thus allowing them to create better fitness and activity apps. Touch ID – Fingerprint Scanner Built into the home button, Touch ID uses a laser cut sapphire crystal, together with the capacitive touch sensor, to take a high-resolution image at about 550ppi of your fingerprint. Touch ID will allow you to authenticate Appstore purchases and app updates besides providing security lock to the iPhone 5S. 8MP iSight Camera with True Tone Flash The iPhone 5S boasts of a new 8MP iSight camera, which features a larger f/2.2 aperture and a new, larger sensor with 1.5μ pixels for better sensitivity and low-light performance. The camera has capability to shoot 10 frames-per-second in burst mode, and 120 frames-per-second slow motion video at 720p. The dual LED Flash, called the True Tone Flash by Apple adjusts colour and intensity for over 1,000 combinations to give better images under dark light conditions. Colours The new iPhone 5S now comes in three new different colours called Gold, Silver and Space Grey. Apple has also introduced new leather covers for the device with 6 colours to choose from i.e. beige, black, blue, brown, yellow and red. iOS 7 The iPhone 5S comes with iOS 7, Apple’s latest redesigned UI along with the option to download the iWorks apps Suite for free which includes iPhoto, iMovie, Pages, Numbers and Keynote apps that are otherwise paid for apps.

Protect Your PC from Malware

A computer needs to function properly in order to be able to get the required results in proper time and condition. The main advantage of computer usage is in its efficiency in producing output that is direct to the input in timely fashion and accuracy. When this is compromised, the merit of the computer ceases to exist. Malware, the shortened form for malicious software, is a big threat to this. As the word suggests, these are software and programs in the computer, aimed at stealing or corrupting data and slowing down processes in your computer. Malware includes worms, viruses and Trojan horses.  They are quite dangerous and you should deal with them appropriately. You can achieve this by the help of antivirus programs installed in computers. Antivirus software/programs combat this menace in the following ways. Make sure to consider all of the following five qualities before selecting the best free antivirus programs for windows. Protecting the computer completely ensures that you will suffer no harm in the near future. 1. Real-time Protection This means that the software is able to protect your computer from incoming threats. This means that anything foreign will be analyzed first and if there is a threat, it will not be accepted. This is the primary function of the software so that it prevents infections from outside. Prevention is better than cure. 2. Threat Detection This means that the software is able to ransack folders and files in your computer to detect any threats therein. A good anti virus program should be able to scan the whole computer in the shortest time possible and be able to detect as many threats as possible. The software then deals with the threats accordingly. This helps you to deal with threats that already made their way to the computer before acquiring the software. 3. Alerts Another function of anti-viruses is to alert the computer user on the condition of the computer. You can program your software to do regular scans of the whole computer and give back reports on how many threats it detected and how it dealt with them. The software also alerts the computer user on threat detection and questions him or her on whether to allow or prevent access. 4. Automatic updates Antivirus software needs to be up to date to deal with new and developed threats, which are more dangerous. The software should be able to update itself automatically. Manual updates are not ideal as the user may be forgetful and fail to remember to update the software. An outdated antivirus program is as good as no program at all. 5. Additional functions Apart from threat detection and elimination, it should also be able to carry out other functions. These include prevention of window pop-ups and protection against outbound email, instant messaging and identity theft. The more capabilities antivirus software has the better. This ensures that at the end of the day your computer is fully protected from a wide scope of threats, whether common or rare. Antivirus software is designed to eliminate all threats whether incoming or in-house. They are available online ready to install to computers.
