iPad Mini with Retina Display is coming in late November.

Apple has debuted a new iPad Mini, it is not called as people thought, it called iPad Mini with Retina Display. The new tablet will obviously feature a much-requested 2,048x1,536-pixel Retina Display, comes in space gray and silver, and houses Apple's A7 chip, last seen in the iPhone 5S.

It ships in late November, starting at $399 for 16GB of storage for the Wi-Fi version, continuing to $499 for 32GB, $599 for 64GB, and $699 for the brand-new 128GB configuration. Cellular Minis start at $529 for 16GB and from there it's $629 for 32GB, $729 for 64GB, and finally a whopping $829 for 128GB.

That's a surprisingly high starting price given that the first-generation iPad Mini debuted at $329. I guess Apple feels the new display is worth the hike. Incidentally, the old iPad Mini now gets a price slash to $299 for 16GB of storage.

The new tablet feels exactly like the first-generation iPad Mini. This is a good thing, since the first Mini has a near perfect feel.

However, while it feels great, it's all about that screen. And given the Mini's smaller 7.9-inch size, it looks even sharper than the full-size iPad Air. But to take advantage of the new pixel-dense screen, you will be paying up over last year's Mini. It's gorgeous, though, so I'd imagine the new premium will definitely be worth it to some people.

Apple says the new iPad Mini is four times faster than last year's model and has eight times the graphics performance, while still providing a purported 10 hours of battery life.

While that's good and all, the first-generation iPad Mini isn't exactly a performance monster, especially in the gaming department. And -- based on these specs -- I'm expecting identical gaming performance to the iPhone 5S, which makes me a bit disappointed.

I fully expect the Kindle Fire HDX 7 to continue its reign as the most graphically impressive small tablet. At least in benchmarks, that is. Actual games performance might be a different story. We won't know until we've spent some quality time with the new Mini.

Other new features include MIMO Wi-Fi and -- on the LTE model -- support for extended LTE bands. That should equal even faster Wi-Fi performance and better and faster cellular coverage.

A new version of the iPad Smart Case -- think of it as a smart cover that surrounds the entire tablet -- now for the Mini, will be released at $69.

Latest Rumours for Google Android 4.4 KitKat.

What are the most popular phones recently? Except for iPhone, the most answers must be Samsung Android phones including, Samsung Galaxy S4, Galaxy Note 3, Galaxy S3 and more. Android OS have the biggest marketing in the mobile market. There are many Android users are expecting for the new Android 4.4 OS which named KitKat.

When KitKat will release?
KitKat is expected to ship with the Google Nexus 5 smartphone first, and then later come to other Nexus devices via over-the-air updates.
If history is an indicator, the most recent Nexus 4, Nexus 7 2013, and Nexus 10 devices, as well the previous generation Galaxy Nexus and Nexus 7 2012 to pick up the release first, maybe a few weeks after the launch.
In terms of all other devices, I suspect the same rules still apply; newer and more popular models will get priority seating aboard the S.S. KitKat, like the LG G2 and HTC One. Note that phones that use custom interfaces (that's most of them) will take longer to get the update.
Handset makers are becoming ever more vocal over social media so look for OEMs to detail specific devices in blog posts and status updates. Realistically, if you are running 4.1 or 4.2, you might expect some Nestle love this winter.

What are the update features?
As far as the Pure Google app experience is concerned, we may see Drive, Keep, and Quickoffice come preloaded by default (right now they're optional downloads or bundled with one carrier or manufacturer experience). As many of you know, this trio of products and services work seamlessly with other Google properties and adds a layer of productivity.
To get a sense for how Android 4.4 KitKat might look in action, be sure to check out the video below. Again, the details are not all that obvious and easy to overlook. However, the experience seems to be one that is smooth and fluid. This is to be expected; Google will continue pushing for performance optimizations across the board.
You might miss it the first time around, but the messaging app is nowhere to be found in the video. As the standard app for sending and receiving SMS and MMS, it's possible that Google is transitioning to Hangouts for its communications. We have long expected to see a unified chat and messaging service from Google; this could be the sign of such an animal.

What's missing?
Taken as a whole, the 4.4 KitKat version of Android looks like it's a minor, not massive, step forward. But, given this is still a version-point update and not a full 5.0 release, we should keep our expectations in check.
Is there something in Android that you see as lacking at the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean platform level? Which features in other smartphones that you would like to see come to Android? I invite you to share your thoughts in the comments below.

Step by Step Tutorial for Creating a Responsive Site.

The trending for designers to make a responsive website (and this post will show you why you need to make a responsive website.). Responsive Web design helps you display your site perfectly on the ever-growing number of devices and different screen sizes that exist now. And WordPress has the most users for website users to create a website. This post today will show you how to make a responsive site with WordPress.

1. Choose a responsive WordPress Theme for your site.
People have different intention for making a website like blogging, sharing, earning money and more. So people choose different kinds of style WordPress Theme to decorate their sites. You can select one for your site on this post -- Top 8 Free Responsive WordPress Themes Sharing. Maybe a free one can meet your requirement.

How to choose a very responsive theme?
Looks. This should be your first consideration when choosing a theme. A theme should be able to give you the look you want without having to spend days and hours customizing it.
Performance. Themes may often affect your site's loading speed, so stay away from themes that call on too many files, or forces you to load files with too many kilobytes. A theme should not slow your site down.
Customizability. This is probably not a problem if you are buying a theme, but if you are looking for free ones, then there might be some limitations on what you could customize and personalize with your theme.

2. Transform your current theme into a responsive one.
Once you have already get a favored WordPress Theme but it is not responsive. How to handle this problem?
Get your media queries in order.
When you get a WordPress theme, you should have a stylesheet that is used on both mobile and desktop versions of your site. You would only have to specify how particular screen sizes would be different from this default style.
You would need to define the maximum width that this set of styles changes would apply for. To do that use:
@media screen and (max-width: 320px)
This means that for screen sizes measuring 320 pixels wide or smaller, a different set of styles would be used.
Other screen sizes you might want to use are 480 pixels, 780 pixels and 1024 pixels.

② Know how to deal with images.
Images can be a problem if they are too big and they spill out of their containers. To ensure that this never happens, add the following code to your CSS
body img {
max-width: 100%;,br /> }
Either that or you upload different image sizes, which will be loaded accordingly depending on the size of the device used.

③ Use the appropriate text size.
When working with a smaller layout on a small screen, your text might appear very big. So just adjust the text size using this handy code:
body {
font-size: 60%;
line-height: 1.4em;

Change other elements appropriately.
Other elements in the layout that you need to change include the overall width of the site, the sidebar, the content, footer and widgets.

Know how to deal with navigation.
There are a lot of techniques to help you get a more responsive navigation on your site. For one, you could use a drop down box rather than a navigation bar. Or you could have your navigation menu take up an entire page and create an app-like environment for your site. Or even getting plugins to handle the navigation menu for you.
