When you receive calls from someone, the iPhone offers two options: that’s Decline or Accept, tapping the green Accept button lets you answer the call, while tapping the red button sends your call to the voice mail. If the phone is on battery preserving locked mode and when you receive a call, by swiping your unlock slider it will automatically answers your call.

The keypad can be used during calls to dial extensions or navigate the phone trees. Tap the Speaker button if you want to the call on the speaker-phone, this way you able to chat on your iPhone without holding it against your ear. When you want to look for an address or number while you using the phone, click on your Contacts to have the address book accessed. You able to have more than just one person at a time on the phone, while you on a call and decide you want to include another caller then simply tap your Add Call button or Contacts button.

As soon as someone answers, then tap on the Merge Calls to combine both calls to a conference call, or tap the Swap if you like to move in-between both calls while you keep each calmer separate. You are only able to have two callers- besides yourself on the call at once.

Using Windows Vista in Netbook

Windows Vista
Windows Vista

Windows Vista hasn’t been a smashing success Microsoft expected it to be. Since Windows Vista was introduced in 2007, a lot of computer users expressed their satisfaction with Windows XP (especially Service Pack 2) by choosing not to migrate. And with the sales of desktop and laptop (which come pre-installed with Windows Vista) down, Microsoft hasn’t been able to create as big of a dent in the user base as it thought it would.

Vista requires more computing horsepower and memory than previous Windows versions, and it is where Microsoft made a poor assumption.  Up until now, computer components have evolved very predictably – latest computers have faster processors, bigger hard drives, better graphic cards and more memory than earlier generations. Microsoft assumed that the Moore’s Law would continue, and that PCs would eventually and naturally beef up to meet Windows Vista’s demands. Unfortunately, the emergence of netbooks in the end of 2007 flipped this assumption on its head – underpowered, no-frills laptops are selling like hot cakes.  For many consumers, internet access and better portability have taken priority over computer performance. Because basic netbooks have only one gigabyte or less of memory and relatively low-performance processors, Windows Vista isn’t the best OS to use. A few netbook users have attempted installing Vista on their midget notebooks and were disappointed at the performance and speed. That’s why most netbook users still use Windows XP as their favorite operating system. (Cost factor is one of the reasons, as copies of Windows XP have a cheaper licensing fee than Windows Vista.)

Although certain manufacturers do use Vista Home after various system settings, netbooks can be fine-tuned to accommodate Vista.  If you are a hardy soul, bound and determined to run Windows Vista on your netbook, then follow these tips to make your life easier:

  • Upgrade your RAM to at least 2GB. A 512K of RAM may give you plenty of excruciating experiences in Vista, and 1GB is better, but can be slow in a few occasions.
  • Make sure there is enough storage space. Windows Vista is big, and it is not recommended to install it on a low-capacity SSD.
  • Download vLite at http://www[dot]vlite[dot]net, it is a free utility that creates a stripped-down version Windows Vista. You need to have a legal copy of Vista; as it needs a Vista installation disc to extract the “lite-Vista”.
  • You should get an external DVD player to install Vista. It may be possible to install Vista from a USB flash drive or an SD memory card, but the optical drive is always the easiest route.
  • You need new drivers for your netbook hardware. Check the availability of Vista-compatible drivers for all of your hardware before deciding to install Vista.
  • Search popular search engines for your netbook model and Windows Vista (for example, search for “MSI Wind Vista”) to read about other netbooks owners who may have successfully installed Windows Vista.
  • Or, better yet, skip the above steps, sell your old XP netbook, and find a new one with Vista preinstalled.
