Why Do People Keeps on Changing Their Phones?

          Every time I go down the street I met a lot of people and I've noticed that they have different phones. I went to the mall and saw many people looking at glass where different phones are displayed and most of it are the most popular ones. In a small office there are a lot of people who are having a registration for a promo where you are to choose a phone and plan for it on how you are going to pay for it. At school, lots of students keeps on changing their phones when there are new model of nice phones.

          Today, there are a lot of new model of phones that are released in the market. Most of this phones can function like a personal computer. The features of personal computer are there. Aside from sending message and calling, these phones includes taking photos, reading ebooks, watching videos, sharing files, playing music, playing games and surfing the internet which allows you to use your fingers to point the screen.  You can also install software to these type of phones. Like android phones that uses the Google-developed android system and platform, which I think is the nicest phone this time is really awesome. As I can see, these phones are the topic of most people. My friend is planning to buy one and still saving money for it. Most students likes to have an android phone. This phones are really awesome which makes the people change their phones. Most of them changed their phones because it is damaged and could not function well. But some people changed their phones because they don't want to be left behind. People want to use the technology in a smaller gadget like these phones. I also want to have one but I can't afford it. I'll buy it if I can earn money on my own. As long as I can contact my family and friends using my my phone is fine. If I have my own money I would probably change my phone. But I would make a research first about the phone before buying. hehe.

Online Games!

Computers are made to help the people save more time with his work, to communicate with the other people, for business either big or small, and to entertain people with music, videos, and computer games. Among these, computer games has the highest percentage of what the internet users really needs. In addition, computer games have bigger sales compared to other computer software. 

Computer games especially online games keeps on updating their games which makes the players eager to play it several times a day. Almost all of these games can be played for free and that's what makes it great. After downloading and installing the game, there you go, the game is now ready and you may start playing. The game is free to play and there are those things which will help you earn more power in the game and only a few of this are for free but you can purchase it also. I really don’t know why this computer games is so addicting. We just can’t deny it that once we try the game, we’ll try to find a way to play it again and we didn’t noticed that we’re addicted already. It’s really true. I’ve been addicted with computer games too. The game is really cool. When I feel that the game is getting harder, I tend to find another game and now I’m addicted with another game again. I just don’t know what’s with this online games and what makes them so addicting. I just don’t get it. I love playing online games because I found new friends from different countries and I also learn something that's why I forgot to eat my lunch sometimes. Grrr… I don’t think I’m hungry. I sleep late at night. Arrhhggg… My eyes are still awake and my body is not yet sleepy. Wake up early every day. Ahh… I need much time to play this. Oh! It’s time for school. Ohh… I’ll just skip the class, need more time with this game. This is really true. I’ve been to this before. You need not to be like this. You also need to take a break for yourself.

Playing online games is just fine but you need to remember not to spend all your time by playing. You also need to eat your lunch. Don’t skip classes. Take a break.

What are the Benefits of Photoshop?

In this blog post, we’ll be discussing about Photoshop and the benefit we’ll be able to get in using this application. But let me ask you first, “Are you interested in photo editing?”, “Do you know how to use Photoshop?”, “Are you interested on what benefits you could possibly get upon using this application?”. So if your answer is yes, let’s proceed.

Before I share the benefits of Photoshop, let’s first discuss what application is this. Photoshop is the leading image editing application. It is commonly used by photographers, graphic artist, designers and even common people like you. This application is composed of many tools you can choose to enhance your photo and make it more attractive. I admit that learning Photoshop is really hard especially when it is your first time. Before, I really don’t like to practice editing with this application but later on, I found out that it was really great editing photos. I think editing photos is fun and amazing. Actually, I had just started editing photos and I really want to dig more and learn deeper about this application. The picture above is the first photo I’ve created using Photoshop. I know it’s not that good but this is all I can share.

Did you know that using Photoshop gives you lots of benefits? Photoshop helps photographers, graphic artist, and designers to make their photo look wonderful. You can change the color of the photo as to black and white type, or make the clouds look wonderful, makes the ocean‘s color to blue, make the picture lively, and make it 3D with the help of Photoshop cs5 extended. The past versions of Photoshop are enhanced giving the user more features. Photoshop’s newer version has so many tools but it’s not necessary to memorize all of them because that’s impossible. One good thing even if learning Photoshop is quite hard, you’ll have a great benefit with it. Did you know that by making your own tutorial and publishing it, giving your own tips and techniques originally made by you, will make you earn money? There are few sites which offer this kind of job and you could really earn big amount of dollars. You maybe had a bad time practicing Photoshop but in exchange, it’s really worth it. Actually it’s not the kind of job that you are required to submit your tutorials at a given time, it really depends upon you.
So if you like to have a job like this, better get practicing now. You can download Photoshop here: click here

How I Use Facebook

Today, most of the people are engaged with social networking. One of the most popular social networking sites is Facebook. According to the Company’s Statics, there are about 800 million active users. Almost all countries can connect with Facebook making the people/users to connect every day.
Facebook is not like other social networking site which has very high graphic design as their template because its main purpose is to make people connected. I used Facebook to communicate with my friends away from me. I like using Facebook because I can easily see the latest updates about my friends. I can share to them what I am feeling by simply posting it in my status bar. It offers me unlimited posting of photos or videos as long as it is not pornographic. Facebook also offers the companies, organizations, etc. to create their own page without any fee. Big companies have benefits with Facebook too because they can place their advertisements in Facebook. Even though it requires some payment, but their payment is worth it. For example, I am using Facebook and there is an advertisement which attracts me so I would probably click the ads and read about it even if I do not know about that product/company before. Even if their purpose is just to make their clients updated, they also make the other people know them. This gives more benefits to the companies. Facebook also offers lots of games. There are times when I feel so bored that's why I play their games too. There are thousands of games you can choose without leaving Facebook. In Facebook, I found new friends too. I make friend with a Romanian and it was really great. For me, Facebook is created to make communication in easy way.

So..., stay connected…

How did they do that ?

All About Web Page

          Have you tried to ask yourself how a website came to be? When I was still young my sister is surfing the internet for my assignment and for me it was really great so I wonder, “How did they do that? My sister is just clicking and in just few seconds there are some changes in the monitor of the computer”. I really got confused with the improvement of the technology. When I graduated in high school, I decided that the course I’m going to choose must be related to computer studies and now I’m a Computer Science student.

         Now I realized that behind these web pages, there are lots of markup languages. Even a single simple page could have hundreds of characters or what we’ve commonly known as letters or numbers. I’ve research about web page and I’ve found out that markup language is composed of markup tags and these markup tags make up a web page. One of these markup languages is the HTML. HTML is a Hyper Text Markup Language. If you’re thinking of creating a web page right now, it would be great to study the basics of HTML like knowing on how to create markup tags. In creating a single web page using HTML, you need not to install anything. Just a simple notepad found in your computer is worth it. A couple of markup tags can create a single HTML document. Just make sure that upon saving it, the file extension would be .html to make it look like a web page or else it is still a piece of text.

          I’m not an expert about this but I just want to share the basics so that you’ll have a little bit knowledge about it. If you want to study more about HTML, you can found many websites on how to make a webpage.

It’s Halloween!

Halloween is a yearly celebration which is called Satan’s holiday but it’s not true. People celebrate Halloween to remind them the people they loved which are dead. I’ve read some articles about Halloween but unfortunately; there are many different ideas because no one really knows what Halloween is supposed to be, and how it came up. You maybe have different idea about Halloween but I won’t be arguing with you because that’s what you think it is and it’s all up to you.

Even if Halloween is a holiday which seems to be spooky, what’s great during this holiday is - having lots of great activities. One of these activities is costume party which I think the most popular activity during Halloween. It is an activity wherein people wear costumes and went to a Halloween costume party. If I am going to attend in this kind of costume party, I would probably wear a princess dress because I think that this would be the strangest costume during Halloween. Like most countries, during this event children wear some Halloween costumes and travels from house to house to ask for candies. Carving pumpkins for Halloween lanterns is also a great idea during Halloween. During this holiday, some group of people likes to visit haunted house or haunted areas. And if you’re planning to invite me, just expect me to answer “no” because It’s not a good idea for me. In this holiday, it is also a great idea to tell some scary stories. I can still remember one night during the last week of October few years ago, my family and some of our family friends were sharing scary stories outside our house and suddenly a dog staring at a tree few meters away from us howls strangely. My cousins shout and ran away which makes our neighbors looked at us. And the last activity which I think is great during Halloween is watching horror films. It is great to watch horror films but for me I think it is not because I can’t sleep well at night, I’d rather watch action films eating popcorn.

                How about you? What are your plans this Halloween?

Student Tips

Summer vacation is ending and my college days are coming. During that day, I felt afraid. Afraid of what will happen in my college days. Am I one of those students who only care for parties, hanging-out with the other students, skipping classes, and wasting time for such useless things? Am I the type of student who happened to be serious for my studies? Am I a nerd? Am I what? I’ve searched for many guides on how to succeed in college. I’ve gathered lots of opinions on how to succeed and I've formulated this tips:

Ø  Start studying now. As if you have a class every day. When I was in my secondary level, I used to say "I'll get started studying when school starts". But I realized that it is wrong. You need not to be enrolled in a subject to have the responsibility of studying. Set up regular study hours. You must allocate a time to study and do it daily. Studying everyday will help your mind mentally healthy.  Read. Choose anything you can read. Just read daily. Start keeping a daily calendar. This will help you manage your time.  Write constantly. Don't be afraid to write what's on your mind.

Ø  You must attend all your classes. Never try to skip classes. Once you've tried it, it can't be denied that you'll like to try it again. You could possibly miss assignments or left behind. I have a classmate before, he just ask me for my notes every time he is absent. Even if he had the notes, he still missed some of the unwritten explanations. You must have a goal of showing in the class 100%. Try to communicate with your teacher. Try to keep some notes from the other students. And double check the assignments and handouts.

Ø  Study your teacher as well as the subject. Many say that "Only the subject material matters". I strongly disagree. You must know the attitude of your teacher and how he delivers the topics in the class. This will help you out. Talking to the other students who had your teacher before is also a good idea. Listen to the discussions well and ask questions in the class if possible. Asking questions will help you learn more. Don't be afraid to talk to them. Remember that your teacher is also human.

Ø  Try to have a Group Study with your classmates which have the same interest with the subject. I thought that doing it alone is a good idea. But I found out that group study is much better. By the first few days, you need to create a group in order to survive. Group study will generate more ideas while brainstorming. Group can help measure which is better idea. Your group must set regular time and place in studying. Everyone in the group must be determined.

Ø  From the very first day of the class, you need to secure regular Study Habits. Before, I only study if I have an assignment. For me, studying is not a big deal. What matters most is your future job. I asked myself one day, "What will be my job in the future?” If I won't study, I won't learn. If I won't learn, I don't have a job. You also need to find what time in the day you learn best, is it during daytime or night time. Find a place to study, either in a crowded place or wherever you like.

Ø  Attitude will determine you success in college. What will you do with your skills and ability without a positive attitude? You need to avoid making negative comments about the course or the teacher. Think that your course is easy. Love your course as well as the teacher. You don't need to hurry. You need to hit the best.

Ø  Don't give up on your course. Don't think that you can't do it. If others can do it, so you can. Don't be afraid with your teacher. Just believe in yourself. Try to compare yourself with the others but don't be competitive. Note: Quitters never win, and winners never quit.

Ø  Lessons are learned from your mistakes. You need to learn from it, don't bother yourself. Have a sense of humor. Even great people fail. You need to keep moving forward. You need to remember, Failure is not a big deal, it is how you respond and learn from it.
