Anker SoundCore Wireless Speaker


Anker SoundCore

(Dual-Driver Portable Bluetooth 4.0 Speaker with Superior Stereo Sound and Incredible 24-Hour Playtime)

Wireless Speaker with Enhanced Bass and Built-in Microphone

Key features of this speaker:

Well First of All it’s Pretty Snazzy Packaging, not obtrusive and easy to take out the Product. Came in Black Packaging and a Subtle “Anker” logo on the front of the box and on the Back you have the Unit Details. Once you open the Box you are met by yet  more Anker  Advertising letting you know that 18 Month Warranty and the company has heard a 99% Positive Review.

Inside the Box is the Anker BT Speaker in a soft Plastic bag, kudos to Anker on that and also the fact that it’s easy to take out and a knife is not required take out unit. The unit has a USB cord on the left hand side in a small box for charging no Brick in the unit I got. Any Standard USB will do I used the one I use to charge my Tablet. Or if you prefer you can charge from a Laptop or Desktop a Multilanguage Welcome Guide is included as well. Please be advised to pull out the insert box to find the Welcome Guide.

 

The unit weighs 365g/129oz and size is 165X45X54 mm or 6.5 X 1.8 X 2.1 inch. Has a Rated range of 10mm/33 ft. Input is rated at 5 V/1A and Audio Output of 3W X 2

 

The unit itself is a Black Finish with 5 Buttons on the top side. From Left to Right you get Power Button, Volume Down/Pause, Volume Down and BT Button and a standard USB port on the right side with an Aux Port and a red light that lights on while charging. The Mesh on the Speaker side is nice and The Anker Logo is on the Grill very subdued as well, a nice touch as well. Press the Power Button to turn on was easy and I loved the Sound it makes letting you know that it is turned on and off and Blue light comes on in the Front through the Mesh. Pairing with my Phone and Tablet was a Breeze but note that you cannot pair with two Devices at a Time. Tested with Music on Phone and streaming Tune in radio from Tablet. The Output is Pretty Loud even at Maximum and very little distortion either. The Hands Free Calling paired with Phone is Pretty Sweet and audio was clear enough that I and the other person could hear myself clearly as well.

 

In Summary, it’s a Pretty Good Toy to use and a price Point of under USD 50  would do nicely anything above USD 50.00 would have a hard time selling.

I was supplied a sample for test and evaluation, and I promised that my review is fair and honest

What Does Microsoft Smell Like?


Well i imagine that it would smell like Crisp 100 Dollar Bills…i mean they screwed us a couple of years back(remember ME and VISTA) but that another story for another day.

Unless you have been living under a rock then Windows 10 is the upgrade from windows 8.1 and the last Windows that is being released and  is coming this summer in 190 countries and 111 languages.Microsoft announced that Windows 10 would be served in the  Flavors that were announced are as Follows:

1.Windows 10 Home

This Version is basically the version that you would find in a consumer version aka home setting.Also inluded in this Package will be Cortana aka the world’s most personal digital assistant(hmm not entirely convinced).

2.Windows 10 Mobile

This is the version that is applicable to Mobile Devices.In addition its would  enable some new devices to take advantage of Continuum for phone, so people can use their phone like a PC when connected to a larger screen.(Cool !!!)

3.Windows 10 Pro

This is a desktop edition for PCs, tablets and 2-in-1’s and could be better suited to a small Business type setting.It also adds Windows for Business and as i understand this including enterprise-grade security, identity and information protection features, reducing complexity and providing a better experience for the modern needs of business. We’ve simplified management and deployment to help lower costs, including in-place upgrades from Windows 7 or 8 that are focused on making device wipe-and-reload scenarios obsolete. We’re also providing businesses with more choice in how quickly they adopt the latest innovations, and are delivering continued improvements based on customer feedback.

4.Windows 10 Enterprise

Geared to Medium and large enterprises and would in theory  support the broadest range of options for operating system deployment and comprehensive device and app management.

5.Windows 10 Education

This edition will be available through academic Volume Licensing, and there will be paths for schools and students using Windows 10 Home and Windows 10 Pro devices to upgrade to Windows 10 Education.Hmm sounds kind of luckluster and why would i want a Student version if i could get the Full Version?? Now if these is going to be a Discounted Version for student then it would make sense,but at What Price?

6.Windows 10 Mobile Enterprise

Apparently this is geared to business customers on smartphones and small tablets.So what is the difference between this and Windows 10 Mobile edition?Perhaps it also brings greater level of security and mobile device management than Windows 10 Mobile and is flexible when it comes to updating employee mobile devices.

7.Windows 10 IoT(Internet of Things) Core

This is an interesting Edition(flavor) it supports small footprint, low cost devices like gateways.Is this a signal that Microsoft is finally embracing the Internet of Things(IoT).Microsoft has a Website dedicated to the IoT as well please check it out.

NOTE TO ALL USERS

Free upgrades will be available for Windows 7, 8.1 and even Windows Phone 8.1 users for a full year.According to Terry Mason he stated that While our free offer to upgrade to Windows 10 will not apply to Non-Genuine Windows devices, and as we’ve  always done, we will continue to offer Windows 10 to customers running devices in a Non-Genuine state.He went on to stay that When we can’t verify that Windows is properly installed, licensed, and not tampered with, we create a desktop watermark to notify the user. If you ever encounter this watermark on a new machine, I encourage you to return the device immediately to the retailer from whom you purchased it and request a Genuine Windows device. Non-Genuine Windows has a high risk of malware, fraud, public exposure of your personal information, and a higher risk for poor performance or feature malfunctions. Non-Genuine Windows is not supported by Microsoft or a trusted partner.

Internship Advice


Summer is around the Corner and a lot of students are about to begin their Summer internships.While as exciting as it may seem REMEMBER THE FOLLOWING;

When you enter a real work environment for the first time, especially as a college student starting an internship, remember why you want to be there: First and foremost, to learn real marketable skills that can enhance your resumé and to secure a strong referral from your supervisor.

Sigh!!


The rate i am getting rejections is crazy this last few mths..Makes me wonder whether i made the right decision as far as Career choice..i have not got a single bite as far as Internship opportunities:I Really really despise the Rejection letters that are so transparent that you can tell it was a cut and Paste Format.

  • After careful review of your credentials, it has been determined that we do not currently have a match for your background and experience.
  • Kelvin, well, I’m very sorry, but the position didn’t come to fruition after all
  • After careful consideration, we regret to inform you that we have determined your skills are not the right match and we will not be progressing with your candidacy for this particular position.

I wish we had feedback given to better ourselves in the future,it surprises me that Entry Level Internship opportunities require so much knowledge beforehand that you very well know was never in the curriculum…or wanting  2,3,3,4,5 years experience is crazy for Internship Requirements.
