Acer TravelMate P648 - Commercial Notebook #CES2016 @AcerAfrica

Hi Guys,

Acer recently announced the TravelMate P648 series commercial notebooks at CES 2016, which runs on Windows 10, boasts powerful Intel® 6th generation Core™ i3, i5 and i7 processors, industry-leading tri-band 802.11ad wireless, and Thunderbolt™ 3 for ultra-fast data transfer and 4K displays support. Combining a durable, ultra-slim chassis and speedy wireless technology, these notebooks are the ideal traveling companion for even the most active road warriors. 

This new series builds upon the Acer TravelMate P645, which earned Red Dot Awards in both 2015 and 2014, and an iF product design award in 2014. The powerful processors translate to faster wireless processing, long battery life of up to 8 hours, vivid, clear visuals and fast video conversion.

“Lightweight, durable and powerful, the TravelMate P648 commercial notebooks were designed to meet the demands of executives and other business travellers,” said Jerry Kao, President of Notebook Business Group, Acer Inc. “In addition, IT professionals will appreciate the stringent security for safeguarding the systems and valuable corporate data.”
Light Yet Durable Traveling Companion
The Acer TravelMate P648 is built to withstand the rigors of frequent travel. A high-strength carbon and glass fiber lid is light, yet strong, while the system weighs only 3.5 pounds (1.7 kg) and measures just 0.83 inches (2.12 cm) thin. The palm rest and bottom cover are made from magnesium-aluminum, allowing the notebook to handle extreme pressure and protect it from drops. To maintain its high performance, a fan keeps the system cool and Dust Defender technology safeguards it from dust. A full-sized chiclet keyboard provides comfortable typing with 1.4mm travel distance, and a spill-resistant design safeguards the keyboard from accidental spills. The keys are LED-backlit, so they can be seen in dimly-lit environments, such as red-eye flights.

Industry’s First Notebook With Tri-Band 802.11ad Wireless
Featuring the latest tri-band 802.11ad wireless technology from Qualcomm®, the TravelMate P648 can utilize the 60GHz band wireless spectrum to deliver speeds up to 4.6Gbps, which is up to 10 times faster than 802.11ac. The tri-band solution supports 802.11ac in parallel, for longer range data transfers in larger spaces, as 802.11ad is ideal for short range, high volume data transfers which works best in smaller spaces. With less latency, 802.11ad can reduce the time delay of projecting wireless content from the notebook to a mere 30 milliseconds.

Ideal Office Mate
The TravelMate P648 is ideal for travel as well as life at the office. In addition to a card reader and HDMI for connecting to an external display, it’s conveniently outfitted with a super-fast Thunderbolt 3 (USB 3.1 Type-C) port and three USB 3.0 ports with one supporting power-off charging. The optional Acer ProDock features a full gamut of ports for connecting a vast array of digital devices and peripherals, including two USB 3.0, DisplayPort, DVI, HDMI, VGA, and Gigabit Ethernet.

The new Acer TravelMate P648 models were designed to fulfill the rigorous requirements of commercial customers with 14-inch displays, offering choices up to Full HD with IPS technology and up to NVIDIA® GeForce® 940M graphics with 2GB VRAM. They also boast 4GB DDR4 memory upgradable to 20GB and ample storage space with up to 1TB hard drives or up to 512GB solid state drives (SSD). Optional RAID 0 SSD configurations provide fast boot times up to twice the performance than traditional SSD. The LED-backlit displays leverage ComfyView™ anti-glare technology to protect the eyes from blue light emissions and decrease eye fatigue. 

Optimized for conference calls, the TravelMate P648 comes with a HDR HD webcam with wide view support, dual microphones and two speakers, a mute key, high-definition audio and Acer Purified.Voice for enhancing voice sound and reducing background noise and keystrokes. Near Field Communication (NFC) supports paperless payments and tickets.

Tight Security and Time-Saving Management Tools
The TravelMate P648 is outfitted with powerful security software and hardware as well as time-saving management features to simplify the service and upgrade of many of its internal components. 

Acer ProShield Manager, a suite of both security and management tools, safeguards valuable data. It uses pre-boot authentication to protect the notebook from the BIOS to the application level. Users can create a Personal Secure Drive (PSD) to seamlessly store and encrypt all critical files, preventing data from being accessed if the notebook is lost or stolen. In addition, it provides an automated solution for managing IT assets remotely.

An integrated biometric fingerprint reader paired with a Trusted Platform Module (TPM) reader protects the system from unauthorized access and a Kensington lock enables it to be secured to a desk.

Acer Office Manager (AOM), a manageability solution, lets IT professionals deploy security policies, monitor IT assets, and schedule maintenance tasks. Plus, Intel vPro with Active Management Technology enables them to administrate software and hardware computing assets.

The Acer TravelMate P648 commercial notebook line will be available to customers with Windows 10 Pro.

“The new Acer TravelMate P648 series provides the latest in design and portability, as well as serious horsepower under the hood through the newest 6th Generation Intel® Core™ vPro™ processor, designed for the modern workforce,” said Tom Garrison, vice president and general manager for the Intel Business Client division. “Once again, Acer validates an understanding of what businesses need with a sophisticated, secure and manageable system that can keep up with increasing demands on power and performance.”
Pricing, Eco-Compliance and Warranty
The Acer TravelMate P648 series commercial notebooks will be available in South Africa from Q2 2016 at the suggested RRP of R20 999

Acer professional notebooks are submitted to a series of reliability tests and are compliant with strict industry standards. The TravelMate P648 series commercial notebook models are Energy Star® qualified and meet the criteria to be titled as EPEAT Gold. They also come with a standard two-year parts and labor warranty, which can be extended to three years of Acer Advantage service. Select models have longer warranties via specific channel partners. All Acer notebooks are backed by toll-free service and support.

Acer's Liquid Jade Primo #Smartphone #Windows #CES2016 @AcerAfrica

Hi Guys,

Acer announced the new Liquid Jade Primo, a 5.5-inch premium smartphone running Windows 10 Mobile. The Liquid Jade Primo provides ultimate productivity for professionals through Continuum, allowing Windows 10 universal apps to provide a PC-like experience when the smartphone is connected with a secondary display.

Award-winning Sleek Design
The Acer Liquid Jade Primo features Acer’s award-winning Liquid Jade design language, with a sleek and slim profile, curved back cover that fits comfortably in the hand, and ergonomic 2.5D Corning® Gorilla® Glass screen. The rear and front covers feature a fine hairline-brushed finish, while a sharp diamond-cut band wraps the chassis and gives the smartphone an even more polished look. The cohesive circular-shaped receiver, rear camera, and speaker inherited from the Jade family adds a touch of elegance.

Multitasking Multiplied
With a USB Type-C monitor, wireless display accessories, or the Display Dock, the Liquid Jade Primo can provide a PC-like experience on an external display with Windows 10 universal apps. It can be used as a touchpad and virtual keyboard, or a keyboard and mouse can be connected for multitasking on both the screen and on the external display; this unlocks use-cases such as:
  • Connecting the smartphone to a TV or monitor at hotels or anywhere on the go for productivity-intensive applications, so that the heavier laptop can be left at home.
  • Projecting presentation decks to a projector or large screen, while displaying the “Presenter View” on the smartphone.
  • Playing videos on the TV while using other apps on the smartphone simultaneously.
The Liquid Jade Primo features a stunning 5.5-inch Full HD AMOLED display that supports 100% of the NTSC color gamut, with 10000:1 contrast, and 176-degree wide-viewing angles. A hexa-core Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 808 processor, along with 3GB RAM and 32GB of internal memory provides powerful performance needed for multitasking, while LTE Cat. 6 and 802.11ac MIMO connectivity options makes downloads a snap. The 21MP f/2.2 auto-focus rear camera has dual LED flash and supports up to 4K (3840 x 2160) video recording, and the 8MP f/2.2 front-facing camera boasts a wide-angle of up to 84-degrees while supporting up to Full HD 1080p video recording.

Engineering Excellence
To reduce the heat that resource-intensive multitasking brings, the Liquid Jade Primo features an advanced cooling system that efficiently dissipates the heat from the processor, while also reducing the overall rear surface temperature.

For a slimmer chassis, the Liquid Jade Primo’s antenna is formed by laser direct structuring (LDS) technology, allowing integration of the antenna and back cover. Also contributing to the slimmer profile is on-cell touch technology, which moves the touch layer onto the outer glass surface of the screen, eliminating the touch substrate layer.

Enterprise-Grade Security and Device Management
With BitLocker technology on Windows 10 Mobile, the Liquid Jade Primo allows for full encryption of all user data stored on internal memory, protecting the device from offline hardware-level attacks. For corporate users, the Liquid Jade Primo also supports device management solutions such as Open Mobile Alliance Device Management (OMA DM) v1.2 and Microsoft Intune, so that IT personnel can help users be productive while safeguarding company information.

Pricing and Availability
The Acer Liquid Jade Primo will be available in South Africa in Q1 2016 for the suggested retail price of R 10 999, 00. To find out about availability, product specifications and prices in specific markets, please contact your nearest Acer office or retailer via www.acer.co.za It will a great device to review being Windows operating system with some cool specs under the hood!

Huawei and Swarovski Brings #SMARTWATCH Jewel and Elegant #CES2016 @HuaweiZA

Hi Guys,

At the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Huawei Consumer Business Group (BG) unveiled Jewel and Elegant versions of 2015’s premium smartwatch. In collaboration with Swarovski’s Gemstone Business, the HUAWEI WATCH Jewel and Elegant mark a new female focus for the company.

Timeless beauty, for any occasion
Joining the Classic, Active and Elite smartwatches released last year to critical acclaim, the new Jewel and Elegant editions offer two stylish options aimed at women. Featuring 68 Swarovski Zirconia dotted around the rose gold-plated case, each measuring 1.5mm in size, the Jewel glistens and shines like nothing else available on the smartwatch market today. A more understated option, the Elegant edition has a knurled pattern effect around its rose gold-plated case. Complemented beautifully by the two genuine Italian leather watch straps, available in pearl white and sapphire blue, the HUAWEI WATCH Jewel and Elegant comes pre-loaded with over 40 watch faces as on the original model, including 10 exclusive feminine designs.

Huawei Watch, where fashion and technology embrace

With the same best-in-class specs of the original Huawei Watch, the Jewel and Elegant’s classic designs, inspired by Swiss watch manufacturers, sees scratch-proof sapphire crystal (the favoured choice amongst high-end Swiss brands) coating their fully circular 44mm faces. Cold-forged stainless steel, plated in rose gold, cements both models’ strength thanks to its durable nature.

Powered by Android Wear™ and both Android and iOS compatible, the Huawei Watch displays alerts for calls, texts, instant messages and emails. The Watch also features Bluetooth connectivity for wireless headphones usage, meaning you can listen to offline music downloads while you work out. With voice commands capable of controlling music as well as navigation, it’s the perfect running device. A heart rate sensor accurately measures heart rates, and the 6-Axis motion sensor can track activities including walking, running and mountain climbing.

A premium watch inspired by classic timepiece design, it truly embodies the space where fashion meets technology.

Availability and Accessories
The standard models of the Huawei Watch are available in more than 20 countries and regions, including: Austria, Australia, Belgium, Canada, Costa Rica, Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Finland, Germany, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Russia, Sweden, Singapore, Spain, Switzerland, Taiwan, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom, and United States. HUAWEI WATCH Jewel and Elegant will be on sale in the same countries and regions, from March 2016. 

Here in South Africa, I still need to try the Men version out as soon as review devices are available. Looking forward to the same.

Acer’s New 11.6-inch #Chromebook @AcerAfrica #CES2016 #Portable

Hi Guys,

Acer has rolled out the newest model in its Chromebook 11 line, now with a more durable design that features a premium nano-imprinted cover matched by solid everyday performance and a portable design that makes it an excellent computing device for anyone on-the-go.

“Acer’s position in the Chromebook market is unparalleled because we offer the range of Chromebook products that our customers want –including larger 15-inch displays and convertible models,” said Jerry Kao, president of Acer Notebook Business Group. “We know what our customers want most in a Chromebook are the attributes that complement the mobile lifestyle – great performance and a portable design at an excellent value – all this can be found in the Chromebook 11.” 

According to data from Gartner, Acer Group is currently the world’s leading Chromebook brand with over 34% market share for the first three quarters of 2015.

Portability with a premium, durable design
The Chromebook 11’s cover is made with a nano-imprinted pattern which gives it a premium look and feel while also boosting durability. The Chromebook 11 has been reinforced like Acer’s models for commercial and educational customers to handle extra-stressful environments. It can handle up to 60kg of downward force on the top cover, while the corners can tolerate up to 60cm drops without damage. The reinforced case results in greater resistance to twisting and stress.

The slim and portable form factor makes the Acer Chromebook 11 ideal for use anywhere – at home, school, work and on-the-go. It measures only 0.73 inches (18.6mm) thin and weighs only 2.42 pounds (1.1kg).

The Acer Chromebook 11 has an 11.6-inch display that features non-glare Acer ComfyView, so it limits eye-strain even after long hours of use. The display has a 1366x768 resolution that ensures sharp and legible text as well as vivid, clear videos and photos.

Customers will enjoy video chats on Google Hangouts and capturing crisp, clear photos with the high-dynamic range (HDR) camera. The webcam experience is further enhanced by the two stereo speakers and integrated microphone for top-notch audio and video capabilities.

Solid Performance and All-Day Battery Life
The Acer Chromebook 11 delivers solid everyday performance using Intel® Celeron® quad-core processors. Further contributing to responsiveness and a fast boot time, the Chromebook 11 features 2GB or 4GB of memory and a 16GB or 32GB eMMC storage. Customers on the go will be able to experience all-day productivity and fun since it provides up to 9 hours of battery life.

Keeps Customers Connected on the Go
With the fast dual-band 2x2 MIMO 802.11ac Wi-Fi on the Acer Chromebook 11, customers can stay connected and in touch with up to three times faster wireless connectivity compared to 802.11n. The device connects easily to peripherals via Bluetooth 4.0, or the USB 3.0, USB 2.0 and HDMI ports. Customers can transfer files to or from the Acer Chromebook 11 and access media on SD cards with the SD reader.

Acer Chromebook 11 Simplifies Security and Collaboration
Chromebooks are simple to use and ideal for sharing by multiple users. Customers simply log into their own Google account to accessGmail, Google Docs, favorite bookmarks, and other information. Plus, the Acer Chromebook 11 CB3-131 can be used by customers tocreate, edit and collaborate both on-line and off-line in programs, such as Office documents.

Security is a key benefit of the Chrome OS, as it’s automatically updated to guard against ever-changing online threats. Every time Chrome OS boots, it checks the integrity and validity of system files. In addition, user files stored on the device are in a separate partition to keep data secure. Many customers prefer to keep all their files on Google Drive which protects files, documents, and photos safely in the cloud, and ensures that the most current version of the file or document is always available and safe, even if the Chromebook is lost or stolen. In addition, the Supervised Users feature helps get children online in a safe, controlled way.

Models, Availability and Pricing
The Acer Chromebook 11 line (CB3-131) will be available in South Africa from Q2 2016 at the suggested retail price of R 4 499. A lot has been happening in this price range and this year there will be a lot for the customers to buy and cherish!

Huawei Introduces the Mate 8 Globally @HuaweiZA #Smartphone #CES2016

Hi Guys, 

At CES 2016, the Huawei Consumer Business Group globally launched the Huawei Mate 8 smartphone, a productivity-driven device with significantly enhanced power, efficiency and battery life. The Mate 8 continues Huawei’s track record of delivering high-end devices that reflect global consumer demand and inspire loyalty in their users. 

Featuring the most powerful chipset, a high-capacity battery and stylish design – including a unique mocha brown color option – the Huawei Mate 8 is the ideal smartphone for today’s on-the-go professional. The Mate 8 is designed from the ground-up for productivity and its hardware and software have been fine-tuned to provide an elegant, efficient experience. 

“With the Mate 8, we have delivered a device that meets the needs of a new style of business. With this fast, impeccably designed smartphone, users can work more efficiently and free up valuable time to spend with friends, family and on personal pursuits,” said Kevin Ho, President, Handset Business, Huawei Consumer BG. “The Mate 8 is the ultimate high-end smartphone. It strikes the perfect balance between high performance and long battery life, enabling people to stay connected and be more productive in every facet of their lives.”

“Professional smart phone users have a lack of choice when it comes to devices that meet their requirements. We have tried to keep this in mind when positioning the Mate 8. It is perfectly suited to business users with its large battery, super efficient rapid charging, large screen and additional security features. In the New Year, work life balance and increased productivity is what we wish for all our mate users,” added Charlene Munilall, General Manager, Huawei Consumer Business Group SA.

Designed for Performance and Efficiency
With new groundbreaking hardware, the Mate 8 is the first smartphone to run the Kirin 950 chipset, with CPU boosting power up 100 percent, GPU performance up 125 percent, and power efficiency up 70 percent compared to the Kirin 925. The device’s architecture balances energy efficiency with high-end performance through 4 x A72 2.3 GHz processors and 4 x A53 1.8 GHz processors. 

Equipped with a 4000mAh high-density battery, the Mate 8 delivers industry-leading power efficiency offering over two days of normal usage. And with rapid charging technology, the phone is able to charge a day’s worth of power in just 30 minutes. In fact, regular users can go without charging their phone for 2.36 days, and heavy users can go without charging for 1.65 days. The Mate 8 also features advanced six-layer thermal mechanics, which allows higher heat dissipation, leading to an excellent handling experience and lower power consumption.

Built for Productivity
Running on Huawei’s EMUI 4.0, based on Android Marshmallow 6.0, the Huawei Mate 8 offers hundreds of user experience tweaks and improvements, including a built-in automatic defragmentation service that continues optimizing system performance. Additionally, the Mate 8 features a split-screen mode that enables enhanced multitasking between apps.

Smart and Secure 

The Huawei Mate 8 introduces a new generation of fingerprint security with enhanced protection technology. The circular fingerprint sensor improves the effective identification area by 10 percent. In addition, the fingerprint friction ridge matching has three levels of security, providing a higher level of protection for users. The new sensor design also increases the unlock speed by 100 percent.

The Mate 8 maintains two sets of fingerprint interface standards to improve smartphone payment experiences—the Fast Identity Online (FIDO) and Android M standards. The strong CPU also supports real-time encryption of full storage for better data protection. The Mate 8 provides a microSD card lock, preventing anyone from accessing content in the card without a password. If a phone is stolen, user data cannot be obtained.

Stunning Photography
Huawei invested $98 million over three years to develop the first proprietary image sensor processor for faster focusing, higher clarity, and more accurate color shading. A leading research team was assembled in France to increase the processing speed of the camera, resulting in increasing the process bandwidth by four times with 14-bit precision. 

In addition, the Mate 8 adopts the revolutionary, all-new Sony 16MP IMX298, increasing the sensor size by 23 percent for breathtaking images. The Mate 8 also features an 8 MP front camera with a new beauty algorithm for taking the perfect selfie.

Efficient Conferencing
The Huawei Mate 8 features “Super Hands-Free 3.0” technology that enables hands-free operations in a variety of environments. Whether you’re in a car, a conference room or at a crowded party, users can enjoy clear conversations from up to 3 meters away. With a 120 degree range of audio pick up and directional noise reduction mode, conference calls are crisper and clearer than ever before, no matter where they take place. 

The Mate 8 features omnidirectional recording and directional playback. Three microphones automatically detect sound sources and record voices from all directions. During playback, people can choose any direction of the sound source they want to hear. Additionally, the Mate 8 provides document readjustment camera mode, which automatically straightens images that are captured at an angle for better viewing.

Globally Connected
The Mate 8 supports global connectivity and more bands than any other dual-SIM phone, including four 2G bands, nine 3G bands and 18 4G bands in 217 countries and regions with 1,334 operator settings. This makes it the perfect device for the global business traveler. 

Beautifully Crafted 
The Mate 8 features a refined, elegant design that highlights its beautiful 6-inch high contrast display. With a leading 83 percent screen-to-body ratio, the phone is able to stay sleek and compact without sacrificing a large display. The 2.5D curved diamond cut glass and aerospace grade aluminum metal are joined seamlessly, giving the device a blend of beauty and practicality.

The Huawei Mate 8 will be initially available in 30 countries including: Spain, Germany, France, United Arab Emirates, Mexico and Australia. The device will cost 599 euros for 3GB +32GB and 699 euros for 4GB + 64GB. It is available in four elegant colors: champagne gold, moonlight silver, space gray and mocha brown. 

“We’re delighted to also announce that from an ESA point of view we’re planning to launch the Mate 8 in March this year, at the same time across nearly 20 of all our main African markets such as South Africa, Kenya, Angola, Uganda, Tanzania, Congo, Zambia, Mauritius and many more. Pricing will be confirmed closer to launch,” concluded Munilall.

3 Years of www.thelifesway.com #TheLifesWay #Birthday #Blogpost

Hi Guys,

The Life's Way was started way back on 27 December 2012 with the intent to do blog posts for Indiblogger and Blogadda communities and win some contests. I also wanted to attend all the Indiblogger meets to meet the fellow bloggers and learn from them. I did meet one of the top most movie reviewer - Murtaza Ali Khan from "A Potpourri of Vestiges" in the first meet I attended. Later, I came to know that he would also be working for the same employer I am. He was the one behind convincing me to buy my own domain address from the start and I did so. 

It was a good move as I slowly learned from various social media channels and started building my blog. I was able to attend several Indiblogger meets and participated in all their contests. My first gift voucher thought came from Blogadda for Rs.400 from some contest from Gillette where there was vouchers for fastest entries submitted on the same day. My biggest win came in the form of a HP Sleekbook for my post on HP Connected Music for Windows 8. I really loved writing the post and shared my love for hindi bollywood songs. 

In the first year, I also used to participate in a lot of Twitter contests and used to get a lot of goodies from several brands. I featured some of those in my 2013 posts. It was awesome to get invited to some of the technology event launches where I met those people whom I used to see on TV. Though I never got the gadgets from the brands that year but it was awesome to meet all the biggies of the industry. I contacted some of the brands and got some positive response too. I always tried to provide value by the images as well as written content on my blog. 

I traveled to Johannesburg and the blogging took a back step during it's first anniversary due to internet connection problems during the initial days here. It was the time I had to start meeting the brands once again from scratch and Sony Movies put me in contact with Ster-Kinekor and I slowly build my relationships with them. I also bought my first DSLR Nikon D7000 in May 2014. The first event I attended in Joburg was with 4ElementsMedia for Augustine Gold and also attended the launch of CinePrestige SterKinkor at Sandton City. It was also a great time as Samsung launched their first bloggers challenge and I eventually won myself a Samsung NX300 mirrorless camera in my birthday month. There was no looking back since that time. At the end of second year, I wanted to touch 100,000 pageviews which I successfully did on 31 Dec 2014. 
The Life's Way in its third year has been in touch with a lot of PR's representing several brands and took a step further to design new visiting cards. I got my biggest break by working with paid assignments for some brands in India and also for Indiblogger Happy Hours to buy myself a Nikon SB910 flash. Also, I won the Samsung Blogger's Challenge to win myself a 65" Curved UHD TV. On my birthday again, HTC sponsored me my first ever mobile sponsorship which I always wanted to have and tried with many brands. I got HTC One M8 from them and loving the phone a lot for its camera capabilities. I achieved more than 640,358 pageviews in a single year with the help of Tweet Jukebox and TweetCaster app. My @thelifesway followers crossed 5800 compared to 52 when I came to Johannesburg as I was only using @araijain at that point of time. 

I am really enjoying the passion I have towards my blog #TheLifesWay and I am really looking forward to make some great changes in 2016. I need to increase my followers base to get into the Webfluential Tier 3 for some of my social media channels. I got my first payment for the very first assignment for Webfluential to do 2 tweet about a brand. It's  really a nice network and you all shall join the same here. I am really looking forward to achieve a lot more this year by scheduling daily posts or on alternate days. Let's begin and Enjoy 2016 to the most!

A Memoir - This Month Last Year - Jan 2015 www.thelifesway.com

Hi Guys, 

January is always a month where we create resolutions to forget about them later. We all have high hopes from the new year and slowly they keep on increasing and decreasing with time. Life is indeed a roller coaster ride and it's time we accept the same instead of living in a virtual reality of dreams getting fulfilled automatically. It ain't going to happen and if you want to achieve any of your dreams, start taking a step towards the same now - at this very moment. That's the truth and will remain reality of this materialistic commercial world. 

Year 2015 started with a hope for the Grand Finale of Samsung to start but that didn't happened till April 2015. Indiblogger started Happy Hours which took me some time to understand but eventually it was a great concept and I was able to get enough vouchers slowly and steadily to buy my dream Gadget Nikon SB910 Flashlight. 

1. Indiblogger Garnier Pure Active Neem - Difficulties of Oily Skin - http://www.thelifesway.com/2015/01/indiblogger-garnier-pure-active-neem.html - I loves sharing the problems I faced all my teenage for having oily skin. Though I didn't won anything in this contest but it was great to share the post. 

2. Product Review - Kinivo BTH240 Bluetooth Stereo Headphones - http://www.thelifesway.com/2015/01/product-review-kinivo-bth240-bluetooth.html - Kinivo has been the brand which remain closed to my heart in 2014 and start of 2015 with all their products and I am still using them from time to time. I will again get in touch with the brand to check if they have launched anything new for TheLife'sWay to blog and review. 

3. Indiblogger TimesofIndia -The Great Indian Litterburg - http://www.thelifesway.com/2015/01/indiblogger-timesofindia-great-indian.html - This was one of my first attempt at the Happy Hours posts for Indiblogger but I took a serious stand on the topic. The post reached the Top 10 posts for TheLife'sWay in 2015 in terms of pageviews eventually. 

4. Stephen Alvarez Windows Lumia Phones - Capturing the World - http://www.thelifesway.com/2015/01/stephen-alvarez-windows-lumia-phones.html - Photography is something everyone loves and smartphones have given the ability to do so to us all the time. Instagram has given the opportunity to share the same with around the world. It's always better to check the tips from famous instagramers and photographers so as to create a style for yourself and earn the followers. I plan to cross 1000 followers this year on my instagram channel

5. Windows Phone Apps to Stay Fit! - http://www.thelifesway.com/2015/01/windows-phone-apps-to-stay-fit.html - That's a goal which we have all of our life and it remains the biggest challenge of our lives. Some have achieved the same via their strong willpower but some needs constant nagging and reminders via someone close or now a days smartphones apps. Check out these apps which eventually have made it for Microsoft Windows phones too. 

6. Disney's Entertainment for South Africa in 2015 - http://www.thelifesway.com/2015/01/disneys-entertainment-for-south-africa.html - Disney has always created new content or recreated the old content with new to age creativity. Some of the Disney movies this year was awesome and I closed the year by watching "The Good Dinosaur". I loved "Quantico" series which was showcased at the annual press release in 2015 because Priyanka Chopra - an Indian Superstar was the main lead actress of the show. Slowly Hollywood has accepted the Bollywood and now I see all the digital effects for Disney and Fox Star movies are mainly created in India. Kudos to the entertainment world as boundaries are getting closer.
