After my very stressful trip in Abuja, I returned to work on Monday to clear up my desk that i had left for over a week but my stomach needed food. As i munched on the very delicious beans and plantain prepared by our local restaurant the first bite on the meat gave me a sharp painful sensation. I was terrified, one of my front tooth i earlier did a root canal on had broken in two. The sight of it was terrifying. The only though that came into my mind was; why did i not put a cap on the tooth.

Apple Unveils iPhone 5

With the growing trend in technology Apple has unveiled its latest phone which is the iPhone 5 according to Apple it's the thinnest, lightest, fastest and most powerful phone that Apple Inc. has ever made it 
looks a lot like the iPhone 4S but it's thinner, by 18 per cent, and lighter, by 20 per cent. The screen is taller too, at 4-inches corner to corner, but the phone, held in portrait mode, is the same width. Instead of a glass back, the iPhone 5 back and sides are made from a single piece of aluminium.                                                                               

Philip Schiller, Apple's senior vice president for worldwide marketing, said as he introduced the device during a splashy invitation-only event in San Francisco. The event starred Apple Chief Executive Tim Cook and the Foo Fighters, who performed several of their hits. The iPhone 5, which will be available in white and slate black, weighs 112 grams, or about 4 ounces, has a processor that is twice as fast as its predecessor, high-speed 4G LTE connectivity and a widescreen aspect ratio.

The iPhone's voice recognition feature, Siri, also got a makeover, with Apple executives saying it would understand a wider range of commands such as sports scores.Apple has also ramped up the device's battery life and improved both of its cameras, giving its front camera 720p high-definition video; users can also take panorama photos now. The company also is coming out with a smaller dock connector for the device and a new cable charger called Lightning that is 80% smaller than its predecessor. 

New iPhones will also come with revamped earbuds, now called EarPods.Apple said  that it has overhauled other products such as its iPod media player andiTunes software. And it's said to be putting the finishing touches on a new iPad with a smaller display, an iPad mini, that it could launch in time for the holiday shopping season.                                                                                                                          

"The combination of today's new iPhone features and the likely release of an iPad mini will help Apple distance itself from the competition," Yoshikami said. "At this point it would appear that only Samsung has a real shot at competing.

Personally i cant wait to get one.......................this seem to be pretty sleek and fast too.
