Rumored Changes for the iPhone 7

Iphone

Rumor has it there are some significant changes coming to the newest version of Apple’s famous iPhone. Apple is notorious for having their newest iPhone edition launch in the month of September, yet they always keep the actual date under wraps up until days before. As with every launch, there is major buzz around what enhancements and new features will be added. With the iPhone 5, users were introduced to Siri. A year later iPhone 6 came out with HDR video and picture quality. So what is the buzz around the 7? Keep reading to find out all the rumored changes that will come with the iPhone 7.

 Headphone_iPhone

See you later regular headphones, wireless headphones are taking over. In an attempt to remove wired accessories and move in the direction of wireless, it’s been said that Apple is removing the headphone port at the bottom of the phone. This is to aid in making the phone even slimmer than it already is. Don’t freak out just yet, there are already multiple companies creating adapters to enable regular headphones with a cord to be plugged into the charging port. But again, that’s just rumored.

Paint-It-black_IPhone

What is one of the most popular colors for electronic products that seems to be missing from the iPhone color palette? Black of course, but not once the 7 comes out. According to www.macrumors.com, Apple will be replacing the space gray color with glossy black. This will now give buyers the color choices of gold, rose gold, silver, white, and the new glossy black.

PoweredUp_Iphone

The new iPhone 7 will feature a16nm Apple A10 processor and 2GB or 3GB of LPDDR4 RAM depending on the model. And all that tech talk translates into an upgraded camera that will include a new dual-lens setup on the iPhone as well as a bigger battery that will stay charged longer.

Water_IPHONE

The dreaded fear of getting water damage or dust inside one’s phone causes many users to purchase a bulky case to protect the phone. It has been rumored that Apple has made some major changes to the build of the phone that will make the 7 dust resistant as well as completely water proof or more water resistant than previous versions.

So there you have it. All the rumors that have came out regarding the changes that will come with the iPhone 7. On September 7th Apple will be having a special press event where it is expected they will unveil the 7th edition to the iPhone family and put the rumors to rest on all the changes.

Your Guide to Scoring Free Stuff Online

FREEBIES

 

Getting some of your favorite name brand items for free is easier than you might think. There are multiple sites that offer free samples of household products, beauty products, food, and many other items. What’s the catch? They simply want your email address. But along with boxes of free samples, you will also get tons of spam sent to the email you signed up with.

 

workaround

 

So here is the deal. When you’re signing up for free samples you’re also signing up for your information (name, address, email) to be used by companies to send you promotional marketing material. You will usually have to take a short survey when signing up, which consists of questions like your age, gender, and household income, or how often you eat out. The work-around is to create a new email address with the sole purpose of being used to sign up for free samples. This way your personal email address won’t be bombarded with newsletters and weekly deals from stores you never signed up with and you’ll still get all the free samples. You can even create a completely different name, just make sure and use your real address so you actually get the free items. DO NOT give any banking, debit or credit card information whatsoever. If a company is actually offering free samples then sensitive financial information should not be necessary.

 

signup

Like we already stated, there are multiple sites you can sign up for free samples. Some you will know the exact items you’ll be getting and others will just be a surprise of items like a box of cleaning products. When searching through sites that advertise free samples, be realistic about the offers and what they are offering. Chances are if it’s an offer for free luxury products that seems to good to be true, then it’s a scam. You can expect to get household items, beauty products, non-perishable foods and snacks, as well as other gadgets and knick-knacks from legitimate free sample offers. Below is a list of the best places to start signing up for free samples.

Cookies

Facts You Never Knew about the Chocolate Chip Cookie

cookies

It’s one the most famous desserts enjoyed all around the world. The chocolate chip cookie has been around for decades and has been implemented into many different desserts. To pay homage to the famous chocolate chip cookie, we have created a list of some interesting facts you might not have known about this delicious treat.

first-cookie

Way back in 1937, a woman by the name of Ruth Graves was making Butter Drop Do cookies and didn’t have Bakers chocolate to mix in with the dough. To improvise, she reached for a bar of Nestle chocolate and chopped up chunks to mix in with the dough. Ruth expected the chocolate chunks to melt and mix in with the dough, but instead the chunks kept their shape and, VIOLA! The chocolate chip cookie was made.

largest

In 2003 the world’s largest chocolate chip cookie was made by the Immaculate Baking Company. The cookie weighed a whopping 40,000 pounds with a 101 feet diameter. To create a cookie of this size, it took the team over 8 months and they used a total of 30,000 eggs.

numberone

With an average of 7 billion eaten in a year, the chocolate chip cookie is proven to be a favorite of all. In a study about cookie preference, 50% of Americans chose chocolate chip cookies over oatmeal, peanut butter, and any other type of cookie. In another study, 13.5% of Americans admitted to haven eaten 20 or more chocolate chip cookies in one sitting. The famous cookie is one of the 4 foods that the pickiest of eaters accepts.

cip

If you wanted to buy a bag of chocolate chips before 1937 then you were out of luck. Chances are you probably would not have been looking for them though, cause they didn’t even exist. Nestle created chocolate chips specifically to be used for making chocolate chip cookies. The average cookie contains 6 to 8 chocolate chips, yet one tablespoon of cookie dough can contain a maximum of 50 chocolate chips.

butter

One of the most important ingredients, other than the chocolate chip of course, is butter. Butter contributes the most to the actual taste of the cookie and depending on how you use it in your receipt can change the outcome of the texture and taste. Using melted butter when mixing the dough will create a denser cookie while using a creamy butter makes the cookie have a more soft, cake texture.

Comparing Wal-Mart’s Version of the Yeti to the Real Yeti

To appease our curiosity we also performed an experiment to compare the two tumblers and see if the result Barnes got would be consistent with the 20 oz. tumbler as well. In our experiment, we found that the 20 oz. Ozark Tumbler, priced at 7.97 and available at Wal-Mart, had the same amount of ice melt as the 20 oz. Yeti, priced at $29.99, after sitting for 12 hours. Check out the video below.

So if you’re looking to save some money, we recommend purchasing the Ozark tumbler at Wal-Mart rather than paying more than double for the Yeti tumbler.

There is a video currently making its rounds on the Internet where news anchor Matt Barnes, of NBC4 Today, compares the 30 oz. Yeti tumbler, priced at $39.99, with the 30 oz. Ozark tumbler, priced at $9.74 and sold at Wal-Mart.  In the video Barnes fills both tumblers with ice and lets them sit for 24 hours. He then pours out all the water that resulted from the ice melting and compared the amounts for each.
