iPhone 4 is out today

The Apple iPhone 4 is out today on Thursday June 24 2010.

Retina Display

I think the Retina Display is one of the coolest things on the new iPhone 4. Its has a resolution of  960 by 640 PX. 326 Pixels per Inch which is more then the human eye can see, It can’t even distinguish each individual pixels.

FaceTime

FaceTime is video calling for the iPhone 4. You can only call other iPhone 4’s and it works over Wifi only.

iOS 4 Overview

iOS 4 is Apple’s Mobile operating system System for iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad. Apple renamed it to iOS, It was iPhone OS but it does not just run on iPhone so the new name is better suited i would say.
Two features that i really like is Folders and Multitasking. One downside is not all hardware is supported, and some is supported to run it but not multitasking and wallpaper.

Ad Blocking Is Piracy In My Opinion

In my opinion blocking advertisements online is piracy due to the ads cannot be viewed, therefore the site will lose money. Sites will use the money they make to pay for servers, upgrading web servers , spend money on themselves and other things. There are ad networks who will pay for so many views of the ad and clicks. If the site does not make money than their content, programming and severs do not get paid for. If you go to a store and steal a magazine that’s stealing. If you steal a magazine the writers and editors do not get paid for their content and cost to print to put on store shelfs.

Now you may say not everyone blocks ads or steals magazines but it still takes away money from the business.I believe blocking Ads is just as bad as illegally downloading Music, software or a movie. When you buy a song, software or a movie your paying to be allowed to play or use that media. Cloud Application and Websites like the one your on now does not cost the user anything up front to be allowed to use it, the service is paid for by the ads. So I think blocking ads is the same as not paying for your movie, song or software. Now I do believe ad blocking is okay if the reason to block Abusive ads. I don’t think a site should be allowed to profit from abusing the consumer. Continue reading

echo “Hello World!”;

Hello World! Welcome to my blog. My name is Kevin. I just installed WordPress on my VPS. I’m not much of a blogger but I’m a big Tweeter. My twitter is @keverw. I am 17 now so this hosting account is set up for me by a trusted adult and will probably stay that way even when I am 18 since I don’t have a credit card(I don’t want one, So don’t even send me offers because you will just be wasting paper and ink.). I’m a web Developer. I am working on a social network. I wanted to start a blog because some times I run out of Space on Twitter and I’ll tweet when I have a new blog post. I am also planning on having a blog on the social network I’m working on but that’s not open yet.
