WHEN SHOULD YOU WORK WITH A REALTOR?
WHEN SHOULD YOU WORK WITH A REALTOR?
When you have property to sell at a premium, you want to work with someone who keeps his finger on the pulse of DC’s housing market, with someone who sets realistic expectations for sellers and who does not jump on the first offer that comes in.
The last few months have been an unforgettable experience, trying find the right buyer in one of the hottest neighborhoods in D.C. Proudly representing the seller of this exchange and selling at 100% of list price. http://www.LukeTheRealtor.com
#BreakingNews for Apple fanatics! The most recent whispers reveal a dramatic size increase and rounded edges for the new iPhone 6. The new iPhone will come with either a 4.7 inch screen or a 5.5 inch screen – this innovation trumps the current 4 inch screen – and brings an important philosophical question to light: at what point will the iPhone become an iPad with a phone? How many more inches are needed to bridge the gap between the two devices, and how will this merger affect the well-being of Humanity?
The latest iPhone 6 leak, which comes courtesy of Russian website Rozetked, shows exactly what Apple’s next smartphone will look like from the front, back, side, and any other angle you could possibly imagine.
The video, which was first spotted by 9to5Mac, shows the 4.7-inch iPhone 6 alongside the iPhone 5s. This is one of the rare times we’re actually seeing the front panel attached to the rear plate. Luxury designer Feld & Volk posted photos that had reportedly shown a rendering of a fully assembled iPhone 6, but this might be the first time we’re seeing the real thing.
We’re expecting to see the iPhone 6 debut at Apple’s upcoming press event on Sept. 9. Rumor has it that Apple will also unveil a larger 5.5-inch version of the iPhone 6 that day, but the two phones may not launch at the same time. We might also get a preview of Apple’s long-rumored iWatch, which is now expected to be released in 2015.
Other than a larger screen and a new design, Apple’s next iPhone will likely come with a new chip dedicated to monitoring your health statistics and support for NFC, which means you’ll be able to tap your iPhone to make payments.

Apple is suddenly, somewhat unexpectedly, in the middle of its most exciting period of activity since it launched the iPhone seven years ago.
Tim Cook has taken over the company and is changing it in ways both small and big that will alter how the world thinks of Apple. For the most part, we think the changes are pretty good.
Here’s a quick rundown of what’s happening:
We are firmly in the post-Steve Jobs era, and Apple is doing a lot of stuff that Jobs would not have liked. Whether that’s for the best won’t be known for a few years, but as of right now these changes look good and necessary.
Because Jobs was such a powerful, brilliant executive, his flaws tend to be swept over. But he had flaws. For instance, he was opposed to putting iTunes on Windows-based computers. However, that was the right call as it led to widespread adoption of the iPod, which kick-started Apple’s comeback. Jobs was opposed to an App Store because he wanted total control over the iPhone’s software. The App Store was the right call.
After Jobs died, I spoke with a former Apple executive, and one thing he said has stuck with me. Basically, Jobs created bottlenecks at Apple because every major decision flowed through him. With Jobs gone, and power more diffuse, it seems as if Apple can do more within its product categories.
Cook has taken over the company, and it looks like he’s managed to balance Jobs’ obsession with secrecy and control with just enough openness to make the iPhone and iPad better products.
Things are changing at Apple, and it’s going to be exciting to see what happens.
It said suppliers of the iPhone’s screens are set to ramp up production to hit the September release.
Nikkei said the iPhone would come in two screen sizes, 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch.
Right now Apple’s iPhone 5 and iPhone 5S have four-inch screens. Apple is the only major phone manufacturer with a screen that small.
The latest flagship Android phones from Samsung and HTC have five-inch screens.
As a result, the iPhone’s screen feels small and cramped relative to its Android competition.
In addition to enlarging the screen, Apple will make the resolution of the new iPhones significantly higher, said Nikkei.
For Apple, this has the potential to be massive.
Brian Marshall at ISI said this would be the “mother lode” of upgrade cycles for Apple. The new iPhones, with their larger screens, will be significantly different from older models, and as a result Marshall expects big sales to existing customers.
Following the news last week, of a woman in China being electrocuted by an iPhone charger, Apple has announced that it will sell its iPhone chargers for $10 to anyone who exchanges a third-party charger – valid up until October 13.
If you need a replacement adapter to charge your iPhone, iPad, or iPod, we recommend getting an Apple USB power adapter. For a limited time, you can purchase one Apple USB power adapter at a special price — $10 USD or approximate equivalent in local currency. To qualify, you must turn in at least one USB power adapter and bring your iPhone, iPad, or iPod to an Apple Retail Store or participating Apple Authorized Service Provider for serial number validation. The special pricing on Apple USB power adapters is limited to one adapter for each iPhone, iPad, and iPod you own and is valid until October 18, 2013.
They should do a full exchange! I’m not paying $10
I find this article a little hard-to-believe based on the number of times I have used an iPhone while it was plugged in. Investigators are still uncertain how a 5V USB cord delivered enough current to electrocute Ma Ailun’s neck, which brings into question whether there was foul-play involved.
This article is sketchy! They don’t know what kind of phone she had or what kind of charger…? She died while speaking on her phone connected to her charger! Whose in charge of this crime scene? Come on MacGyver, I think you can do a better job interpreting evidence. #AppleConspiracyTheory
