Lately, the toy car market has become quite competitive, resulting in some pretty cool and fast toy cars, that every kid would like to have. Today, these kid’s toys are a dead ringer for actual cars, and they involve a lot of technology which makes them faster, stronger and more durable. One of the most exciting models that have been made recently is the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray For Kids, which is made by Power Wheels, one of the most popular toy car manufacturers. Apart from the Chevrolet Corvette, Power Wheels have been making models of other popular vehicles, such as Ford Mustang, Cadillac Escalade, and Jeep Wrangler.

The Power Wheels Chevrolet Corvette Stingray is a small scale version of the seventh generation Corvette, which was unveiled in Detroit earlier this year, and is supposed to be available for purchase in fall of 2013. This is one of the fastest, most powerful Corvettes made so far, and the Power Wheels version of the 2014 Stingray is the fastest toy car ever made.

It has a single racing seat, and there are the fake chrome five-spoke wheels, along with Power Lock Brakes. It can support 65 pounds, which is 15 pounds more than what the KidTrax 2013 SRT Viper GTS, the main rival of the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray For Kids, can support.

Problems about Wi-Fi and other issues grips Microsoft surface users

The Microsoft surface tablet that was launched with much fanfare  during the month of June by Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer at a Los Angeles event at Milk Studios is now drawing flack with some users complaining about Wi-Fi connectivity issues that are preventing them from getting on to internet. The first complaints appeared within two days of Microsoft shipping the tablet on October 25. Some users had posted complaints on the Microsoft’s Surface support forum stating that the wireless option showed “limited” connection and rebooting the tablet had temporarily resolved the problem.

Some users even thought that the problem could be with their wireless router instead of the tablet, but the connectivity problems appeared to be consistent across different router brands. Other users complained that the problem was happening with their Surface tablet only and not with other wireless devices. Microsoft declined to comment immediately on the issue.

According to Zeus Kerravala – founder and principal at ZK Research, the problem may be due to software issue caused by buggy code or it may be due to a driver conflict. Kerravala opines that limited connectivity was a problem with older Windows laptops resulting from conflicting Wi-Fi drivers. Microsoft is now required to patch the Windows RT OS on the surface tablet.

Lenovo edges out HP to become world’s No.1 PC maker

The Lenovo Group has been ranked as number one PC maker for the first time in its history by edging out Hewlett – Packard or HP.  The latest data released by the research house- Gartner still ranks HP in the lead but by less than half a percentage point when compared to Lenovo. The global market share of Lenovo is estimated to be 15.7% and that of HP is 15.5%.  HP’s shipments fell by more than sixteen percent to 13.55 million whereas its rival Lenovo had shipped 13.77 million computers during the third quarter.

However the third quarter numbers from IDC a rival research firm showed HP as having a slight lead with 15.9% against Lenovo’s 15.7%. The PC industry as a whole is supposed to be on decline with an 8.6 percent decline in shipments compared with the last year as per the report of IDC. Gartner further informs that Lenovo had made a crucial market share gains over the past two years, the main reason being that Lenovo in addition to acquiring other vendors had also indulged in an aggressive positioning on pricing especially in the professional market.

The overall perspective of PC market is dull as demand for computers has taken a beating due to the availability and popularity of the smart phones and tablets which enabled the people to do the basic computing things on the move. Some consumers are also not buying the PC’s until the launch of Microsoft’s latest operating system – Windows 8 that is not likely to be available until the end of this month. The other aspect that has weakened the share of HP in the global PC market is the tough competition from Asian rivals like the Taiwan’s Acer and other Asian PC manufacturing companies.

Apple sets a record by selling two million phones in just 24 hours

Apple incorporation has created a record of sorts by booking orders for over two million iPhone 5 models in the first twenty-four hours that reflected the higher than expected demand from the consumers for this iPhone model.  The icing on the cake is that the share price of this corporation rose to $691.28 per share on NASDAQ. The shares had gained nearly 22% in the past three and half months towards built up to the launching of the Apple iPhone5.

Wall Street analysts forecast that Apple may sell over 42 million units this year alone.   However, some analysts believe that early sell out may be due to supply crunch on part of Apple.

Censoring the online voice or censoring the online noise: Where to draw the line of Internet Censorship

InternetA recent virtual uproar which incidentally went viral in India was the censorship flag raised by Kapil Sibal who holds the ministry for communications and information technology in the Indian governing cabinet. An article in the New York Times without quoting anybody, pointed the finger of meddlesomeness at Kapil Sibal and the news avalanched into a huge outcry amongst Indian internet users which constitute to about 40-45% of the Indian population who are currently more so empowered and encouraged by the current wave of anti-corruption protests. This act was indirectly viewed as one that could possibly curtail the censuring of political leaders for their actions and hence ended up being snowballed into a vehement and to an extent spiteful campaign against the minister.

    In my opinion that a property foreclosures can have a significant effect on the applicant’s life. Home foreclosures can have a 8 to several years negative effect on a debtor’s credit report. A borrower who have applied for a mortgage or any kind of loans as an example, knows that the actual worse credit rating is usually, the more challenging it is for any decent personal loan. In addition, it can affect a borrower’s chance to find a good place to let or rent, if that will become the alternative property solution. Great blog post.
