My iPad Air Review: 1 year later!!

                                              

       Looks: So the iPad Air is pretty much a slightly bigger version of the iPad mini 3. Apple claims that because it's lighter it is easier to carry around. When it comes in at about 1 pound it is lighter than most tablets and even some phones. Apple worked hard for the ultra thin design that most companies are busting there butts off to make a success. There's nothing really that special about the outside. 

     Specs: The iPad Air comes in with has a Retina display that's 9.7 inches diagonally. It has a 2048-by-1536 resolution and 264 P.P.I (pixels per inch). It has a fingerprint-resistant oleophobic coating. It has an A7 chip with 64-bit architecture and a M7 coprocesser. 

     Durability: Now, I have dropped the iPad Air a couple of times. The case is in sort of bad condition. The top right corner has a minor scuff. I haven't dropped it screen down but many other people have and it didn't end well. Generally, Apple doesn't have good screen protection. 
      
      Function: With my iPad running at IOS 8.1.2 it runs at decent speed. It's not as fast as a iPhone 6 or Note 4 but it's pretty good. Granted my iPad Air isn't as good as it used to be so when I ran a benchmark on Geekbench 3 it is not too far behind the factory fresh speed.
      
       What should I get??: Well if you don't own an iPad and you are planning to get one then go for the iPad Air 2. If you already have an iPad Air and is considering getting the iPad Air 2 then just stay with the iPad Air. You aren't getting that much of a different package. The iPad Air 2 has Touch ID, is not too much thinner, and has different color choices. That's really all that's different in the iPad Air 2.
    
      So I give the iPad Air 4.5 stars. The iPad Air is a good product. With it's bigger brother the iPad Air 2 coming even thinner than the normal iPad Air. If you want another tech review then comment below and let me know. And keep up with me if you want to see more posts!!!!

The Giver: Movie Review

                                                                                 

               So I just saw The Giver at my local theater and my immediate first thought of the movie was it was  half like the book. Most questions were left unanswered so the movie supposedly tried to answer most of the questions. I would have left the unanswered questions unanswered but some people don't like unanswered questions. You look at some of the new movies based on books and some are faithful to their book and some aren't. You take Mockingjay, for instance, the other two movies were pretty faithful to the books. The director of the Hunger Games is Gary Ross, Francis Lawrence has taken charge for the finishing movies. They were both faithful to the book. You look at Percy Jackson, Chris Columbus and Thor Freudenthal did those movies directed those movies and fans like me are thinking: what the happened?! This comparison gives me evidence that the movie quality depends on the director. The Giver's director was 60% loyal to the book. Thanks for tuning in and I'll see you soon!!

Clash Of Clans


  

Clash of Clans is made by Supercell. It is a simulation game. It is when you have a village and you attack people and defend as well. It may not seem interesting but when you play long enough you get addicted. Trust me I speak from experience!! I, myself am addicted!! But be SUPER careful it in the app store it is on the first page for top grossing. It is very tempting to buy things. I almost paid $5 for something not worth it (This is my opinion not a fact!). Later in the game you rebuild the so-called ''Clan Castle" which allows you to join a clan or start a clan. There are 3 resources used for various reasons. The main one Gold used for essential upgrades, the secondary one Elixir used to train troops,
upgrade troops in the Laboratory, create spells for battle in the Spell Factory, and to upgrade Gold Mines (You upgrade Elixir Collectors with Gold) other uses as well, and last but not least Dark Elixir is used to upgrade Barbarian King(Town Hall Level 7), Archer Queen(Town Hall Level 9), (You do not start with Dark Elixir) to train Dark Troops(earned at Town Hall Level 7) and other uses.






Working on it!!!!

Even though I haven't posted in a LLLLLLOOOOOONNNNNNGGGGGG time i'm working on posts to be revealed!!!! Bye!!

Review on the Newbery Award winning book The Giver

                                                 THE GIVER by: LOIS LOWERY
The Giver was a great book!! It was a satisfying and a great book. It is about a boy who's name is Jonas and his world is perfect. Here is the summary in my own words: Jonas is an 11 who chosen at the ceremony in December to receive training from the Receiver who holds the memories of many things. There is going  back. The beginning is kind of slow but when you get far enough into the book it gets interesting. I am just starting the second book to the series and it is called Gathering Blue. I will make a new post when I am done reading it and tell you(my fans) my feedback.

Tradenations

Tradenations is a great game!!! In the game you can get villagers and can assign them jobs. I think it teaches you the basics of business, there is taking inventory, there is also a market where you buy and sell your stock. I can't spoil the entire game for you but I can tell you that it is free and it got great reviews!!
