Keep the iPad Screen Clean

By Ed Raine

iPad is based on a touchscreen technology. That means that our fingers tap, slap, flick on its smooth face. If we want do that on normal glass, it will end being sticky, smeared and dingy from our hands. The iPad's surface has a special coating that repels the fingerprints. But this has its limits too. If your iPad gets dirty by, let's say ice-cream or chocolate, you must clean it with a softly lint-free cloth, like the one you use to clear your glasses. Under no circumstances you should use products like Windex, Formula 409, or everything that is based on alcohol, ammonia or scratching cleaning pads. These types of cleaning products will compromise the coating and will make it very difficult to use.

Take a light watered lint-free cloth and slowly wipe down the front and the sides of the iPad. Make sure that the device is not connected to a dock or a USB and be careful not to drop water into the openings like the dock connector or headphones jack. After you finish the cleaning with the water-damped cloth, take the same type of cloth, but this time make sure that it's a dry one.

The screen is resistant to scratches, but if you by accident drop it on a solid surface like concrete it may crack. If this thing happens and the screen or a chip is damaged, don't use the iPad or try to pry out the broken glass. It's recommended to go at the nearest authorized Apple service for repairs.

There is another solution for both situations - keep the iPad clean and protected in case that you drop or scratch it. The accessory dealers come with a bunch of solutions that range from all kind of stately leather portfolio models to a variety of colored rubber covers that have the purpose to protect your iPad from everything that could damage it (including the situation in which you keep your iPad in a shoulder bag among with car keys, glasses or credit cards).

Juvenile Light Emitting Diode Lighting Holds Great Expectations

By Ann Jone

As a new kind of light source which is energy saving and long-life, the light emitting diode has long drawn great attention. After the large-scale utilization of the light in the 2008 Olympics, which achieved great effect, the light emitting diode industry has obtained substantial support and a lot of demonstration zones have been established. At the same time, an increasing number of enterprises have set foot in this field and some even say that the light emitting diode is on the top of the world. Is it a real prosperity of the industry?

There is no industry that has been put great hopes than the one of the light emitting diode, but this is shortage of customer basis due to its slow development. A dangerous signal appears: companies have put the cost reduction on the first place. They also have the lighting current increased with the luminosity keeps steady, thus the number of wick will be reduced and the cost is able to saved. It is not good for the whole lighting industry.

There are some disadvantages for this kind of lighting. As is well known, the heat endurance of the light emitting diode is not very good and the current heat dissipation design does not meet the requirement in such a strict and high requiring field. As a result, a perfect method for both the heat dissipation and the weight has not been promoted yet. Then is the problem of its life-span. The wick life-span in the light reduces as temperature rises and half of life-span will be lost at the condition of the rise of electrolytic capacitor temperature.

By only replacing and imitating, the current light emitting diode market will not have space to develop. Some outstanding products must be invented and companies producing the product must be have the knowledge of the combination with the customer and the features of the light. That is the point that people pay little attention to. Related chip of the light emitting diode is: M54583P.

Software Judge Review

Software Judge allows you to write their software review whether in positive or negative views. You can pick any software you like and it can be free downloaded. If your original review has been published, you will get paid between US$1 and $50. As I know, the reviewers are usually getting paid between $1 and $5.


If you are a newbie in software review, you can read the other reviews first then after try the software, write your honest review with your own words. Don't submit several reviews in once, but submit only one first. After it's published, just write another one. Remember, they published only the good quality review.


You will get paid in two ways, i.e. the first, if you have $200 in your account, you can ask them to send your money via Western Union. Second way, if you have $20 in your account, you can request to purchase any their downloadable product such as eBook, game, or software.


The problem is, if you have written several reviews, you always got $1 for each review and you don't want to buy their downloadable product (after you have $20 in your account), so you have to write 200 reviews and you could be need several years to receive your money.
