Written on August 18, 2011 by Avlya Jaie

Comments Off

The new app for iPhone lets you donate money to a non-profit every time you hit your alarm clock's "snooze".

Have you ever imagined yourself donating money in charities and helping non-profit organizations just by oversleeping? Well, with a new iOS application for iPhone devices, you could make this thing possible.

Recently developed by LetGive, a company that supports mobile technology and charitable donations, the Snooze alarm clock app allows you to give 25 cents of your money to non-profit LetGive networks every time you hit your clock’s “snooze” button. Your extra slumber could also be a huge help for the Business Center For New Americans, an organization that provides financial aid for refugees and immigrants in NY. Aside from that, hitting the “snooze” button also enables you to give enough school supplies for kids through Classwish, and might even support the nation’s artists through Music For Tomorrow.

This app works very simple: You will be asked to set your desired charity program, and then the application will calculate how many times you pushed the “snooze” button. Take note that you will be given two choices every month.

You can download this new alarm clock application at the iTunes Apple Store for FREE.

Amazon’s New Tablet Computer, to Hit the Market by October

Written on July 15, 2011 by Avlya Jaie

Comments Off

New tablet computer from Amazon, scheduled for a release in October.

Amazon finally intros its new tablet computer which will be launched in October. The said device will be produced in order to compete with Apple’s iPad, and also to help its own digital content store in marketing their music, movies, and other content.

Entering the tablet market would probably be a hard battle for Amazon, knowing that Apple has been the leader of tablet sales — with 19.5 million worth of devices that were sold since the iPad launching last year.

Though the company had not yet revealed some features of the upcoming tablet, few reports have leaked out that it will be a nine-inch screened tab running on Google’s Android platform. The new Amazon tablet would not feature any camera, unlike the iPad 2, but will be available in a pricing that is much affordable — making it the best choice over other tablets in the market.
