Good riddance 2009. It was not the best of years for certain things.
2009 brought only the marginally better Apple iPhone 3GS – whoa, it looks the same, but has a faster processor than the iPhone 3G, big whoop-de-doo. AT&T continued to drop so many phone calls that they finally made an app for that.
Crunchpad The Joojoo finally came out to a hailstorm of litigation and a Paypal pre-purchase that totally violated their terms and conditions for accepting money on unreleased items. 2009 brought out the Nokia N900… and not many applications for it – nor utilize the darn forward facing camera in Skype… before let’s say Apple does it perhaps?
2009 became the year where a rumor inflated the stock prices of a company… somehow. And FINALLY I got my 17,000 song music library in order.
But… 2009 showed where the #4 wireless telecom start to get some traction by offering cellphones and wireless/internet packages at a price that was a step or two below the other wireless telecoms. 2009 saw a maturity in Google Android, a shot in the dark by Google that had finally gone from a 1.0 version to 2.1 in real quick steps by actually listening to their customer and vendor needs. 2009 saw Barnes & Noble finally bring out their Google Android based Nook and saw the Amazon Kindle become the highest selling “gadget” at Amazon.com. 2009 saw Motorola come out with a phone that people actually wanted… the Droid.
2009 saw that the Sony PlayStation 3 finally step down from that high price pedestal and figure out that you know… some people would love to be able to afford the hardware to play the killer games like Killzone 2, Uncharted 2, Tekken 6 among many others. 2009 saw the release of Square Enix Final Fantasy XIII which sold over 1.5 million units in under a week… yes, one week. 2009 saw that Microsoft was willing to admit that the XBOX 360 might still fail, but they stood behind it and continued to grow their XBOX Live Network to a point where if you’re a gamer that loves being online, you owned a 360. Nintendo continued to do whatever Nintendo and Shigeru Miyamoto wanted to do. And sell whatever it was by the boatloads.
2009 saw Barack Obama sworn in, a global economy crisis, a underwear bomb, Lindsay Lohan set loose on the world, less drama surrounding Britney Spears, more drama around Google Voice, and above all… 2009 brought forward growth, reviews, fun… and some other craziness to Remove The Labels.
From me to you… Happy New Year. 2010 will be fun with the January announcements by Google and Apple with many more things, such as the CES in Las Vegas, in tow. Have a good one and please do not drink and drive. Hire a taxi… or get a designated driver. And don’t light an entire bag of fireworks on fire (see above).
The Internet has come a long way since its inception. There are now several different ways to get an internet connection. One can do this by inserting wireless internet card in computer or can use DSL. Apart from this, internet phones and ip phones are there as well to help people connect internet through phones. Internet telephony is not the last option available, wireless internet providers are there as well to offer internet connectivity.
