I'm An Android But Want To Be An Iphone

There are moments in our life when we envy. Its not a good feeling but when we are in that moment we want to be someone other than ourselves. 
I have experienced this at different stages in my life. I am however grateful that my faith in God led me to realize that I am unique, beautiful and capable of great things. 
Believe it or not but someone envies you. Even if you don’t think you are worth much, someone would kill to be in your shoes or live your life. So we got be grateful for what we have got. 
I know it’s not easy and this inspiration literally just fell on my lap. So I wrote this poem using smart phone technology that I feel will paint a different picture of envy. 
I know android lovers will be pissed at why I am making android envious of iphone but don’t take it personally ………. also don’t ask for my opinion on that as well.
Well here is the piece I hope you like it:
I’m an android dreaming about going to the big Apple to become an iphone.
Thus every night I sleep in 4g to enable the connection to be faster.
My pastor claims my dream is impossible.
I say he doesn’t believe in miracles, 
For my cousins in Dubai and China have already made the change and are now iOS 
I Own Self, is selfishness claimed the pastor
Why do you wanna change from unique to oblique?
Delete your unique to deplete your belief that you are beautiful?
Not content with your content
No longer seek consent from your beauty cos you think that it is nonsense
So your conscience now condescends
And I wonder whether you descend into an illusion of greatness or whether you are all together
LOST!
I may expand on it later but for now this is the poem. Here is a pic for you to share on instagram if you like.

Remember keep it One HONDRED!

Google Pixel – Will You Buy One?

Google yesterday released its new smartphone, Pixel and though efforts by the Alphabet company to sway IOS users, my bet is that Apple won’t lose much of its pie in market share. 
I can’t however say the same for other Android phone manufacturers like Samsung, HTC and Huawei. 
As we await consumers response to the release, I want to point out few points from yesterday’s presentation that I found interesting.
Best Apple Jab
Though many punches were thrown at Apple at yesterday’s presentation (of which I don’t think we’re enough to make Tim Cook flinch), a nice uppercut was thrown which got me laughing really hard. 
The colour names of the Pixel phone:

  • Quite Black
  • Really Blue
  • Very Silver

I found this the highlight of the presentation as it mocked the iPhone 7 new colour announcement: Jet Black 
(Jet Black is not really a new colour if black already was an option for consumers. I bet some were expecting indigo lol)
Why can’t people just stick to the colours we are used to for smartphones: Good ol Red, Chelsea Blue, Man City Light Blue, MTN Yellow and ECG Black 😂. (I will take ECG Black anyday by the way, just don’t charge me)
Photos and Camera
I should have guessed that the name of the phone was related to its camera and photo features. 
With 12 MP in the back and 8 MP in the front (along with other specs I won’t bore the non technical person with), this is apparently the best camera on a smartphone yet according to DxOMark which gave it an 89 rating. (That’s better than the IPhone 7 plus if you were wondering).
If you are like me and aren’t moved by that, Pixel takes it a step further and adds that Google offers FREE UNLIMITED STORAGE of photos in original quality on Google Photos. 
(Wonderful Google, now give me free credit to buy the phone and I won’t bother you this Christmas)
Aside these two features everything was same old news. 
Pixel is a great phone entering into the market. You can pre-order one now or like others wait till MegaPixel comes out LOL.
(I am not sure whether MegaPixel is their next model but it sure is a good name)

Pixel-The New Google Phone

Are you looking to buy a new android smart phone? If you are you then you timed your buying just right because Google (The company that some see as the Internet) is releasing its new smart phone handset dubbed Pixel, tomorrow 4th October 2016.
But what happened to Nexus? Why did Google start over? 
I have not yet found answers to these questions but Pixel’s rumored features alongside other Google technology such as Google Allo, the messaging app designed to make us do and say more in our instant messaging chat rooms (watch out Whatsapp, someone wants your spot reaaaaaaal baaaaaaad!) shadow the reason for the company’s branding changes.
I guess Google just want to be more in control of the hardware that houses Android. 
The phone looks sweet though. I am tempted to call it the Google iPhone since it debuts with an XL version as well. 
There price range is rumored to be about the same as its Apple and Samsung counterparts. My bet is that they would slowly overtake the Android handset market.
I hear a 15 minute charge will give the phone 7 hours battery life. This looks likely as the Nexus 6 in this article provided 6 hours battery life after a 15 minute charge. (That was in 2014. Did we have to wait 2 more years to add an extra hour? 🤔)

The phone looks promising but until the launch tomorrow that’s about all I have on this scoop. Will discuss the features more after the launch.

NDC & NPP – Who is Apple and Who is Google?

Blackberry finally admits defeat and bows out of the phone handheld game (and it’s about time).
They had a great product but weren’t fast enough in adapting to the ever changing playing field of consumer expectations.
The same could be said about the political parties in Ghana outside NDC (National Democratic Congress) and NPP (New Patrotic Party).
I am forever amazed that in 2016, parties haven’t figured out that you either join one of the big two parties (NDC and NPP) or stay out the way.
There is a third option however involving the minor parties unifying to form one party but ego’s and view points greater than Kanye West prevent this great idea from seeing light (Maybe ECG is to blame. LOL)
Well Nokia bowed out and this week Blackberry exited. I believe the same fate awaits the minor parties. The question on  my mind as I ponder this half baked theory is which of the major parties is Apple IOS and Google Android?
I am an IOS fan and admire greatly the power of Android. I am not a political scientist to dissect and conclude the above matter; neither am I political party follower or loyalist. I am just an artist in love with Apple products who just had a eureka moment revealing that in our current political climate, the major party that behaves like Android and draws brands like HTC, Samsung, Huawei and LG to it is likely to gain the trust and vote of the people.
So what do you think? Who is Apple and who is Google? NDC or NPP?
I look forward to your comments
(NDC coming before NPP is due to alphabetical order and nothing else)
