Why we think the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus is so cool.

Apple released the latest iPhone (Nigerian time) at its yearly event in the US yesterday, (Sept 8 2016) and the good news is that iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will be available in more than 25 countries beginning Friday, September 16. Trust Nigeria, we’ll definitely be among those countries! (But look price first before you buy, because you know, recession. Lol.)

Note: We rarely critique phones and mobile apps here on the Pishon Blog, but technology is running away from how we know it now, and the future of design – both web and print – is now mobile. That being said, let’s tell you the cool new shiny features of the iPhone 7! I may just dump my HTC M9 for it!

CAMERA

The iSight camera on the 4.7-inch iPhone has a six-element lens and a 12-megapixel sensor. The camera now comes with optical image stabilization (OIS), just like all the iPhone Plus versions before. The OIS mechanism reduces motion and handshake and allows 3x longer exposures than the iPhone 6s.

Top 4 Web Hosting Companies in 2016

One of the things to look out for when choosing a web host is pricing, storage space, bandwidth, number of domains and subdomains, email services, wordpress integration and more. In this post, I’ll share with you the top 4 hosting companies to use for your business. In no particular order.

InMotion Hosting: I only just recently started using InMotion. I loved the simplicity and interface. I found out about them when I had to login to a clients Cpanel which I didn’t purchase for them.
inmotion-hostingInMotion Hosting offers a broad range of services, from three different shared hosting hosting plans to VPS through to dedicated hosting. The company ethos is to provide a first-class service from well-trained staff without cutting corners on support or overselling server space. Personally, I think they are a bit expensive than the usual – but i hear that it’s deliberate and their packages are mainly aimed at business and corporate users – people who can afford to pay a little more for reliability and support. They offer only LINUX hosting (no Windows) but they offer a range of packages which cover all bases pretty comprehensively. Business Hosting is $4.89/Month – about N1800/month. Multiply that by 12 months, you’re almost at N22k/year. Which is not a bad amount to invest in for quality. The first year you’ll get 30% off. Continue reading “Top 4 Web Hosting Companies in 2016”

Why Use Social Media Ads?

Social-Media-Ads

Social network advertising, also social media targeting is a group of terms that are used to describe forms of online advertising that focus on social networking services. One of the major benefits of this type of advertising is that advertisers can take advantage of the users’ demographic information and target their ads appropriately. (Wikipedia)

Social network advertising is not necessarily the same as social media advertising. Social media targeting is a method of optimizing social media advertising by using profile data to deliver advertisements directly to individual users. Social media targeting refers to the process of matching social network users to target groups that have been specified by the advertiser.

Social media advertising helps businesses find new potential clients by using users’ own shared information to identify interest. Rather than reactively targeting users who search a certain term, social media advertising proactively targets relevant users before they even begin their search.
