The bad fate sealed the future of HTC First phone

Not all Smartphones that get launched have the same fate as that of the Apple iPhone 5S. HTC First is definitely not a gadget that would leave you spell bound with optimum performance. No wonder that the device flanked so badly in the market this year. Although it became a budget device but there were very few people who actually preferred to buy it. The cost of $99 also did not lure the buyers towards this model. Even extensive Facebook chatting feature and quick update viewing plug in couldn’t save this HTC First device.

The Touch case launched by Apple must be included

Although we have nothing against our beloved Apple who gave us beautiful products like iPhones, Macbook etc, but many people still don’t understand why Apple touch case was launched. The Apple iPhones are self sufficient and they don’t need any structural or functional editing as such. Also the touch screens of the Apple Smartphones work good enough. So, definitely people wouldn’t want to confuse the usage the functionality of their high end devices by the complete outer cover of their Smartphones sensitive to touch. Won’t that create unnecessary trouble in handling the phone? But that’s what this Apple touch case does.

 

There is a reason why Samsung Curved Television fails

Samsung Curved TV's failed to impress

Samsung Curved Television failed to impress

Although Samsung has always believed in bringing high end products to the market, but sometimes we can say that it goes too far in exploiting the technology. It launched a television set that has a display screen which is curved! Now this doesn’t mean that you have to view distorted and curved images on your TV screen. This Samsung curved TV is definitely a new experiment worth clapping but it’s definitely not worth buying. After all, you wouldn’t want to sit in a particular position to watch the TV comfortably, right?

Whenever a gadget is rejected by the market, then it doesn’t always mean that the product wasn’t good enough to be used. It simply means that there might be better competing products in that same price range and category that attracted more attention from the buyers. Every time that assumption won’t be true because some of these gadgets do lack in giving optimum performance. So, you would definitely not want to gift the less accepted products to your closed ones, right?

When you are living miles apart from your partner, the only mode of communication you have is through phone. You cannot be with each other but you can certainly hear to each other’s voice to lighten up your world. Keep your telephonic conversation a regular thing and include it in your routine so that you can tell each other about stuff and try to suppress the distance by being there for each other over the phone.

Send unexpected gifts

Choose the right diet for you

Choose the right diet for you

Most of the time if we are ready to start considering the dieting, we vow not to keep foods that are unhealthy. We promise to ourselves not to buy foods that are not advisable for us for it can cause gaining of weight. Buying of foods that are unhealthy yet we find it just normal or common at home should not be bought as soon as possible.


By keeping those foods out of the house can force you not to eat those foods anymore. It is normal for us that we have food cravings, thus, if we buy those kinds of foods we really can’t stop ourselves from eating them and once done eating, we just feel sorry. However, even if how sorry we are of what we have done, we can’t change the fact that we cheat upon ourselves, and we keep on doing such thing, it also means that we can move on and will eventually stop dieting because we already find it hard to suppress our food cravings.

The shifting of focus is one effective way of losing weight. Just like for an example, if you want to something sweet which is of course strictly prohibited during dieting, you can do something to shift your focus like going out with friends and play outdoor sports. You cannot stay inside your room listening to the ticking of your side clock and thinking when to stop that craving. You need to go out and do something that will take away that feeling of yours.

Diet and workout is the perfect combination

Diet & working out is the perfect combination

You can also do something like doing work outs in a gym or even at home. You can make your own equipment or you can gather tools that will be the best substitute if you can’t afford to buy your own equipment. If time comes that you are looking for something to eat which is not allowed on your diet, grab that equipment of yours and do exercise. But of course not all people are open for that idea, because there are people who would rather get a good book and read. Well, such idea is effective only if you really love reading. But for someone who would just read to get the idea of eating sweets, well, that won’t be a good idea.

Meaning to say, when you try to do something to shift the attention, make it a point that you love what you are doing and you are not just doing that for the sake of running away from your feeling of eating. Of course, you should also know that dieting is not about starvation, because it is about control. Discipline is a one key factor for a successful dieting, and of course if you do this everything will just follow.

Change your eating habits and see results

Lastly, choosing the right diet plan as your partner will play a very big role on your journey. Do not waste your time, effort, and money on diet plans that are impossible or too good to be true. Start within yourself as your warm-up so that when the actual diet program buts in you won’t feel uncomfortable.
