iOS6 Gives More Reasons to Keep your iPhone Secured

Along with the launch of the all new MacBook Retina, Apple also revealed that iOS6 will be taking the iPhone (as well as iPad and iPod touch) to entirely new directions this fall. Here are some of the new features that will make your iPhone one of your most valuable possessions:

iOS6 Passbook iPhone4S

Fluid Maps. Enjoy a clearer and smoother display that can be easily manipulated by panning, tilting and zooming. Arrive at your desired destination effortlessly with its turn-by-turn navigation, spoken directions and experience photo-realistic interactive 3D views of the amazing Flyover. Get ahead with real-time traffic information, alternative route suggestions and local search information for over 100 million businesses.

Smarter Siri. Also to be made available for the new iPad and iPhone 4S will be a multilingual Siri that includes language support for English, French, German and Japanese, and added support for Spanish, Italian, Korean, Mandarin and Cantonese. Siri will also keep you posted on latest sports scores, make restaurant reservations, update your Facebook status, post Tweets or launch an app. The smarter Siri will also enable you to interact with your iPhone using solely voice command, taking the hands-free functionality to a higher level.

Facebook Friendly. Probably the best integration ever for a mobile device is the built-in Facebook that will allow you to sign in once and post from Notification Center, Siri and FB-enabled apps. Never miss a friend’s new contact detail, a scheduled event or birthday as information is kept updated across all your iOS devices whenever your FB friends make the changes. You can also “Like” and see your friends’ recommendations directly from the App Store and iTunes. No more “I wish I knew that before I clicked Install App” disappointing moments.

Personalized Photo Sharing. Thanks to the success of the iCloud, sharing photos with family and friends are made personalized yet easier using Shared Photo Streams. All you have to do is choose the photos for sharing, select which friends you would like to view the album and the shared photos are instantly accessible on their iOS devices. You don’t ever have to worry whether you look hideous in a photo because you know that you’re sharing it with people whom you’re really comfortable with. It’s like putting “privacy” in a shared environment. Just knock yourself out leaving comments and liking photos in shared albums.

Passbook Worthy. If you’re always on the go, the new Passbook app will be your best aide as it organizes all your passes in one place. Boarding passes, baseball tickets, coupons, concert tickets, hotel check-ins. It displays your passes on your Lock Screen automatically based on a specific time or location. So if you happen to enter your favorite coffee shop, you can scan the loyalty card from your phone to buy coffee or check points balance. Passbook also comes in handy at the airport by alerting you about flight delays or last minute gate changes.

And More… There are more features in the new iOS6 such as guided access for learning, Safari enhancements, offline reading lists, support for FaceTime and wait for it, a VIP Mailbox! What does this do? Once set up, you will be able to quickly view messages from important people whom you label as VIPs. This is good news especially for those who are focused on whatever their doing, as it filters out not so urgent messages like those subscriptions that we don’t really bother opening at all (we hope our newsletter gets labeled VIP, by the way). You can also decline incoming calls with a quick message, set callback reminders and activate a “Do Not Disturb” option.

Next Gen iPhone? These iOS6 advancements are just a sneak preview of the next generation iPhone. Word is coming out that the new iPhone prototypes are built with NFC chips (Near Field Communications) technology that will enable contactless transactions where one can simply use the iPhone to pay for gas, groceries, bills, and practically anything as long as the merchant has an NFC reader that will accept express payments. Given the more than 200 million plus credit cards that Apple has in its iTunes database and a little kick of integration, this feature seems very likely to happen in the not so distant future.

iPhone Security. Such exciting innovations only give more reasons for you to protect and secure your iPhone. More than just a smart phone, the iPhone not only makes our work and personal routines easier, it also allows for greater mobility as we leave our credit-card laden wallets behind.

These all amount to a greater need to keep your device safe. At Colcasac, our protective sleeves are smartly designed and made with biodegradable materials which are better for both you and the Earth. Each iPhone sleeve that we create has a heavy-duty exterior canvas that is incredibly soft yet strong. Lined with recycled polyester, our iPhone sleeves protects your device with a snug fit minus the bulk and our unique and minimalist design also acts as a theft deterrent, giving you peace of mind and comfort for your iPhone.

  10. One of the main misconceptions about glass is that it is rather dull with
    practically no privacy. With all the new advances in technology- that
    is simply just not the case anymore.

    Over the years, glass manufacturers have come up with various types of glass like double glazed windows
    and patterned glass. You can use glass doors for your bathroom, patio and
    other places at your house to give your home
    an ultramodern or elegant look and feel.

    So you do not have to worry about the glass being dull or plain.
    Purchasing glass that has etched designs of nature like flowers and trees or any other categories based on your personal taste is
    possible nowadays. So finding the right kind of glass to blend with other furnishings in a particular room is indeed possible.
    There is no shortage of choices in terms of glass

    Another benefit of glass is in terms of insulation. Glass is not a good conductor of heat.
    During our hot summer season, with all the advances in energy efficiency
    with glass, glass will not absorb heat, making the room hotter.
    During a winter or autumn period, glass will not cause much heat loss. 

    So you and your family might enjoy a more cooling effect during summer and a warmer
    effect during winter or autumn. You also save money in terms of utility bills.
    Since there is less heat loss, you can turn down the heating
    system to a lower temperature, which results
    in less energy consumption. During summer, there would not be any necessity
    to lower the temperature. 

    Another benefit of using glass doors and windows is that it just makes your home brighter and more cheerful feeling.
    With our famous sunny days, there might be no necessity to switch on lights to light up
    a particular place since there is sufficient natural

    LinkedIn has a great feature that connects with your existing email accounts and allows you to invite anyone you have interacted with to your network.

    This means that you might reach people you interacted with once or twice,
    or people that you haven’t spoken with in a while. This is a powerful tool,
    but are you using it effectively in your marketing?
    LinkedIn as a Data Collector
    Look at all the ways you can collect data from people.
    The easiest metric to track for most is their email addresses,
    so ask people and promote their use. Create mailers or offer contests via
    email registration. Remember, each email you collect is another potential LinkedIn profile waiting to be connected to.
    Also, you might convince someone to join LinkedIn when they receive an invite from you, which means more customers to interact with.

    Easy Ways to Connect on LinkedIn
    So, what are some easy ways to connect with users and get them to want to network with
    you? Many companies have started suing LinkedIn as a corporate blog to promote brand
    awareness. These blogs might not even have anything to
    do with the products being sold, but they might tie in with corporate culture
    or offer up some helpful knowledge or technique.
    This is called generating substance, and if you want
    people to see a value in your postings, you
    need to provide that substance, otherwise they simply won’t care.

    The nice thing about this is you don’t have to be a multi-faceted business guru to provide content.
    Maybe you promote an interesting link of the day, or maybe
    you repost a news story about something company-related (please give
    credit if you do this.). It could even be a humorous blurb or story, or even a business-appropriate joke to keep
    your network’s attention. The only constant is that the postings stay constant.
    If you start it, then maintain it to help build that brand
    awareness. Remember, people won’t actively look
    for you if they don’t know you exist.
    One great way that some companies have started building a loyalty network is through promoting their
    employees. Some companies will offer a spotlight
    on their employees, showing off the projects they have done or discussing their high points.

    This not only helps to ensure your employees feel valued, but it also helps to paint your company as more human, which is
    something you want when trying to get people to connect with you.

    Pitfalls and Things to Avoid With LinkedIn
    Most of what has been discussed here has been the positives of
    using LinkedIn for your promotions, but there are some pitfalls
    you may want to avoid. Again, not all marketing works for all
    niches and some can be turned off more easily
    than others.
    For starters, when advertising with a graphic, consider the context
    that your audience will view it in. LinkedIn is business to business networking.
    Is your picture one that would be considered safe for a business networking
    platform? Yes, attractive, nearly-naked people tend
    to get clicks, but are those the kind of ads people at major corporations
    are going to be more than likely be turned off due to lack of professionalism?
    Consider your content in your pictures before posting and make sure your graphics are a good
    match to your audience and marketing message.
    Second, watch your language. While on the surface, this could be taken as do not
    swear, on a deeper level, you have to consider what
    a company will filter for and what they will allow.
    Some words tend to trigger web filters pretty easily, so be careful about your verbiage.
    Also, look at the message your words send. Are you trying
    to be edgy, dynamic, endearing? Do your words properly convey the message
    you want people to see? Sometimes people get so wrapped up in sending out a strong message that they fail to consider if it is the right one.

    Third, don’t verbally tie yourself to a region or company if you can help it.
    While you may want to highlight a company on a landing page
    or maybe you are geared towards a certain region of the world, you don’t want to inadvertently exclude
    potential customers because they think your ads don’t immediately apply to
    them. Remember, you can focus your ads in terms of companies and locations ahead of time, so listing out that info in the
    actual ad might prove redundant.
    Fourth, don’t slack on your content. It can be easy to start
    with a big push, but the number one thing that kills an audience’s
    interest is inconsistency. Don’t slouch on your posts.
    Make sure you dedicate a certain period of time each day to providing some form of content.

    If you can’t or think you might have problems with this, hire someone to do it for you or spend a day or
    two generating multiple posts so that you can just plug and play.
    However you do it, just be sure to keep doing it. You are setting
    an expectation of service as accompany when you post, and to do
    so inconsistently will send a bad message abour what your company considers professional.

    Fifth, be careful on rebranding. Some smaller companies take the philosophy of experimentation a bit too far and keep
    trying to reinvent themselves every month or quarter, but the truth of it is that many companies
    form bonds over the long term with clients, and just because you announce a name change or
    a new logo, that doesn’t mean that your clientele is paying attention. To build
    your brand, you need consistency, so stick to a logo or name and try to avoid
    being so edgy that you can’t make up your mind about your name.

    Remember, you’re a business, not a rock star.

    You might peek at Yahoo’s home page and note how they create news headlines to grab people to click.

    You might add a video or a picture or two to grab readers excited about what you’ve got to say.
    In my opinion, it could bring your posts a little bit more interesting.
