Apple’s latest iPhone probably would be the biggest leap since the launch of the original iPhone four years ago. In the age of mobile internet and apps, Apple has surpassed Nokia and Blackberry, its prominent contenders in the mobile industry. With Facetime , a feature supporting video calling on the latest iPhone with the highest resolution display gives it a high standard for mobile communication. Let’s have a look at how Apple’s iPhone is setting the bar for other smartphones.
Facebook already has 750 million users compared to 500 million last year. It goes on to show the way people want to connect and enjoy sharing between friends on the site. The amount of sharing is also an indication of how people are engaged with the site. There were also reports that the major shareholder of Facebook, Microsoft agreed to buy Skype in May allowing Facebook to grow even more closer to Microsoft.
Amazon’s new tablet is averred to be having color LCD touch panel instead of the conventional black & white E-ink panel which is the trademark of Amazon’s Kindle.

Many sources now claim that twitter is the one who has shut it (News of the World). However, the point am and many others are emphasizing currently is that it’s not twitter, who’s behind shutting of the newspaper.

While Apple has 3 million more users added to its existing 17 million users (in U.S) RIM has lost 1 million thus falling down from 19 million to 18.

In a week Google+ is the buzzword all over the webosphere. All the credits go to the promotions and the hype. We can neither underrate nor overrate this Google+, but one thing is obvious Google+ is will surely not join the Google flop list (Orkut, Wave, Buzz). I can hear you guys saying “enough of praising Google+”.
Within a week of 3DS launch retailers shifted about 400,000 units which came as a shock to the Nintendo (as they weren’t hoping this) albeit this doesn’t seem that bad. Nintendo is again following the prime cliché of surmounting the flaws of the current 3DS with help of their new venture Wii U which is going to be launched officially on Easter Day 2012. Let’s hope that at least Wii U would bring cheers to Nintendo on the auspicious day unlike the current 3DS which became a nightmare.
While Apple is retaining its throne since its launch, certain rivals like Droids, Amazon, Motorola, etc are trying by all possible means to pull down the King from his throne. However Apple which has never been known for being succumbed has decided to give the counter attack to all its rivals in the form of iPad2.
