iPhone survey conducted
Visible Energy has launched its Monostrip smart electrical outlet that can be controlled via an iOS device. The Monostrip is a Wi-Fi enabled, two-socket outlet that acquires energy usage data every 5 minutes. By using the free EnergyUFO iOS app users can view this energy usage information, as well as turn each of the outlets on and off remotely. Secure use of the product over the Internet and remote energy data collection is free of charge for the first year, but will cost $4-annually thereafter.
A new survey conducted by Ipsos Public Affairs has revealed what customers most dislike about the current iPhone. Roughly 40 percent of the people interviewed said the battery life was the most disappointing aspect, followed by the software keyboard, phone reception, Siri libations, and volume controls. The survey also found that 42 percent say they will only upgrade if their contract is over and they are eligible for an update, while only 13 percent upgrade from the desire to have the latest technology.
