On occasion this time We Trying 5th generation iPod nano is. IPod nano at a glance it does not differ from previous versions in terms of appearance. However, when observed more closely, this iPod has a screen more relieved than his elder brother, namely equal to 2.2 inches.
But unlike his brother, the iPod nano now has a camera lens behind the screen. This lens is one with an aluminum body wrapped in the body of a young iPod. Also other parts of the body design seems not to show a significant change.
When viewed on the display there are several new menu, such as radio, video camera, and fitness in the extras.
Apple finally buried a radio in the iPod nano. Simple and elegant, like a character who always carried Apple, so the form of FM radio display on this iPod. With forms like the classic radio show, Apple is also completing his radio with RDS system.
This system can identify the song information display, artist, and album on a radio frequency that plays the song. Just like several other players, Apple also enabling the earphones as the radio antenna. For some users who have poor-quality earphones, just get ready for the radio signal is bad.
Video cameras strange
With a VGA camera with a resolution up to 640x480, the video iPod nano can even reach 30 fps. As a result the quality of the resulting image did not seem broken. Features that deserve more proud of is the existence of 15 types of preset special effects unique video, such as the cyborg (style of eye effect Robocop), Kaleido, motion blur, Mirror, Light Tunnel, Dent, Stretch and so on.
When tried to record a video, there seems awkward with this camera lens position. Position is located in the lower right uncomfortable held. When held with one hand, the lenses covered with palms, and the picture becomes dark.
In addition there is a bit disappointing feature of the camera image. My new iPod nano is it can not be used for photos ria. It turned out that the lens is planted in the body of the iPod nano is only enabled for video recording.
Features 'iPod nano fat burner'
iPod nano can become friends for users who like exercise habits. Whether for athletes, or users who simply want to 'burn' fat on his body.
Pedometer Section located in the menu Extras> Fitness can calculate our steps when walking or running, and also calculates how many calories of fat that have been 'burned' from our body.

iPod is basically carrying the complete feature. Not to mention with the Genius feature Mix. Like a personal DJ, this feature will automatically create a mix of songs from the user's iTunes collection that would sound good in a circuit.
For voice quality problems, the iPod can not be doubted. With a capacity of 8GB and 16GB, 5th generation iPod nano is capable of storing around 2000 songs and 4000 (128-Kbps AAC) fruit. Or for the duration of a video store about 8 hours-16 hours.
Basically, the iPod has a design 'cheerful', lightweight and solid body can be the right choice for adolescents or children, as well as intimate chum for athletes. Unfortunately the iPod nano has a shortage of innovation in the video lens. A device with this 9 color choices range dibanderol USD 149 (8GB) and U.S. $ 179 (16GB).

internet is increasingly developing into a source of news and information. Even now have beaten the other media except television as the primary source of national and international news. So is the survey conducted by the Pew Research Center for the People and the Press in the United States in December.
40 percent of respondents admitted that they obtain national and international news from the Internet, jumped 20 percent compared to September 2007. For the first time since the survey was held, people said that they mostly rely on the Internet as a news source, compared with a newspaper, which is only 35 percent of respondents selected. Television, still the most superior as the main source of information, which is chosen by 70 percent of respondents.
Trends in the Internet as a source of primary information applies to the young. Nearly 6 out of 10 respondents aged under 30 or rather 59%, stated that they have national and international news online. Meanwhile, the same percentage also said the television. Earlier, in September 2007, 68% said the main news source is television, the Internet compared to 34%.
Among the news of the most widely observed by the public include the financial crisis, rising fuel prices some time ago, the problem bailout, and the U.S. Presidential Election.
Shows the percentage of young people who make it big in the internet as a source of information. This is probably because they are also more active in the Internet and utilize the latest technology. In contrast to their older, perhaps more like the conservative media like television.
Now the news and information circulating on the Internet not only through the news portals only. Starting from emails, blogs to social networking sites played a big part in spreading news and information quickly. Through Twitter, for example, people can directly distribute updates in a few seconds and then immediately spread throughout the world. Then, bookmarking sites like Digg, Delicious and others also play an active role in the spread of news and information important.
So this shows that it is not possible in the next few years, Internet and television roles become equal as the main source of information. In fact, the Internet has a big chance to beat television, given the increasing trend. Estimated, with more and more Internet users around the world, the Internet's role in life will also become increasingly large
Internet giant, Google, also became one of the victims of the economic crisis now engulfing the world. After announcing that they will do layoffs to 100 people and closed some branches. Google also decided to lay off six of their services. 6 service include Dodgeball, Google Catalog Search, Google Mashup Editor, Google Notebook, and Jaiku. One more, Google will remove the ability of users to upload videos on Google Video. This step for efficiency but also for the sake of focus.
Dodgeball is a service which allows users to convey a message to his friends when he was located at a location close to them, so that might be arranged a meeting. However, this service is only useful if the user's friends are listed in Dodgeball.
Dodgeball was acquired by Google in 2005, but unfortunately not much cared for Google with serious consequences in the year 2007 the two founders of Dodgeball quit Google.
Google Catalog Search
Google Catalog Search, launched in 2001 is a Google service that allows users to search for various product catalogs. However, this service was not too popular. Even so, the technology developed for the Google Catalog is the basis of the Google Book Search
Google Mashup Editor
Google Mashup Editor is a set of tools that allows developers to create web applications and combine them with other Google services like Google Maps and Google Base. Google Mashup Editor is currently in closed beta testing phase. The possibility of this service is stopped because most of the functions already available in the Google App Engine. Thus, the Google Mashup Editor users can switch to Google App Engine.
Google Notebook, which is similar to Google Docs just more simple, would not be dismissed completely. It's just that, Google will continue its development and there will be no features that increase. This service will be maintained, especially since a lot of users. The reason for this development does not proceed is because Google has other services that offer seruipa functions, such as Google Docs, SearchWiki, Tasks Gmail and Google Bookmarks. However, many argue that these services have not really match the Google Notebook.
Jaiku, which is social networking with a fate similar to Dodgeball, which is less developed post-acquisition. Jaiku shape similar to Twitter, which is a micro-blogging service, but has other advantages such as can import feeds from other services. Google acquired Jaiku in October 2007, but then Google closed the registration for new accounts. In the future, Jaiku will not shut down completely, but uses code that will be open source and entered into the Google Code.
Google Video service also will not close completely, but only the possibility the user to upload a new video. Moreover, Google now has a Youtube that much more popular. Google this step simply because they want the focus to the search engines, thus helping users to find videos that they want, such as Google expressed in this blog.
In focus, sometimes we need to sacrifice some things that may deviate from the intended focus. That's what Google is doing now. Just Google it seems necessary to better listen to customers, because Google Notebook was so popular and caused many to lose.
