Android and iOS are very popular operating systems and considered as the best today. Those who have knowledge about technology can make difference between these and know about their pros and cons. But most of the people are not familiar with them and it is hard to choose one since they don’t know anything about them that will help them make a good decision. This is for those who want to learn the difference between them; here are few reasons why to choose one over the other.

Reasons Android is better than iOS:

1. Better notifications bar – When you see something in Android’s notification drawer, you can take action and respond without opening whatever app first.

2. Images with Contact list – Android can automatically import photos for your contacts (or allow you to set them yourself), so it’s much easier to see your friends’ faces in your virtual address book than it is with iOS.

3. More free applications – Android’s Google Play Store doesn’t always offer better quality, but it does offer far more options than the App Store.

Reasons iOS is better than Andriod:

1. iOS is more intuitive.

2. User Interface lags – Android phones suffer from lags in UI responses, even with the latest android version. iOS prioritize tasks or apps if user initiate new app or task. So iOS is lot smoother than androids.

3. Support and service.

4. Longer battery life.

3D printing is also known as Additive manufacturing and it means making a three-dimensional solid object from a digital model.

Many people were focused on this but up until 1980s there was no 3D technology. In the next 30 years, until 2010, the printers became widely available. This shows how fast 3D printers and the technology in general is developing. The oldest-known way of printing was woodblock printing which was 1800 years ago. Until 1900s, there was one innovation related to printing every 50-100 years. Since 1900 until today, there are over 10 different new ways including 3D printing, Digital press, Laser printing etc. The first 3D printing was created by Chuck Hull in 1984. Today, 30 years later there are many kinds of 3D printers such compact 3D printer, desktop 3D printer, experimental 3D printer and many others. There are companies that are focused on improving them, there are companies focused on selling them and it is easy to buy one. The cheapest one you can buy is around 250$ but also there are very expensive ones that can cost up to 25.000$.

You can easily find companies that will sell you one if you make a simple Google search. Also you can visit Amazon and make a search there as-well. The 3D technology is used for prototyping and disturbed manufacturing with applications in architecture, construction, automotive, military, even fashion, footwear, jewelry and many other fields.

Lots of people travel in places that are unknown for them and they don’t have a place to stay. That’s why the hotels are used but, how to choose the right hotel? Well here are some things to consider when choosing the hotel:

1. Location. Check its location. If you’re going on a holiday I believe you don’t want to travel an hour from the hotel to the beach.

2. Extra fees. When choosing a hotel, you need to decide what amenities you’re going to need and find out whether they’re included in the rate. For instance, if you need access to Internet, then you may want to look for a hotel that offers complementary Wi-Fi.

3. Number of stars.The star rating is the most common way by which hotels are categorized. Essentially, the more stars, the better the quality of the facility is. This is a good way to compare hotels and also to determine whether you are looking at something that’s more economical or more luxurious.

4. Reviews: Finally, when choosing a hotel, always consult the online reviews. There are websites that are solely dedicated to this purpose, and you can read recent experiences of real customers in order to get a feel for what you can expect.

5. Parking: If you’re arriving by car at your hotel, you’re going to need a place to park. Things to consider here are if the hotel offers parking, how much it charges for that parking, and how secure the parking lot is.

Honeymoon Travel

It is synonym for a trip that includes two married people in love with each other. There is increasing marketing aimed at couples for “honeymoon-like” holidays. A honeymoon usually begins few days after the wedding ceremony and it is usually a trip to a place that includes either hot weather, beaches and islands or colder weather on mountain or lakes. Sometimes some couples choose to go on a cruise.

There are many dedicated honeymoon packages offered by travel agents, hotels, cruise liners and almost every other travel vendor. Typically these include “romantic” extras like massages, spa baths, and bottles of champagne.

How much a honeymoon travel costs?

A honeymoon may require careful budgeting. It is an expensive trip and it’s cost can be around the same as the cost of the wedding itself. That’s why it is recommended to include a honeymoon budget in your wedding budget
Your honeymoon can cost any amount that you choose to spend on it, of course. You can even skip it. But many agents are encouraged to suggest options that cost about half of your wedding budget, but that’s just their guide to the rough amount they can get you to part with, not an iron clad rule.

Some travel agents offer honeymoon registries in which the guests can contribute to the cost of the honeymoon as a wedding gift; you could also arrange this informally by asking for cash gifts from guests who want to contribute to the honeymoon. The acceptability of asking for what is always essentially a cash gift varies between cultures, families and couples.

Many people have experienced a culture shock, and those who haven’t, will experience it for sure. It is reaction to finding oneself in an environment that is culturally very different from the one in which one is familiar. There are many different elements of culture that can lead to such an experience. Travel takes one out of one’s comfort zone where things are the way one knows, and people in different parts of the world have different ways of life.

By traveling the chance of experiencing a culture shock is increased. There are many cultural elements that may lead to one. Such as:

1. Language – When two people speak different languages and do not know each other’s languages, they are locked apart from each other, no matter how physically close, and any and all communication is difficult if not impossible.

2. Food – Some food is disgusting in one society are delicacies in another.

3. Hygiene – Some societies put a heavy value on cleanliness, washing themselves daily. Others are more accepting of natural body odors and a bath is a rare event in one’s life.

4. Manners and social norms – The behaviors that are widely accepted in one society may be outright offensive in another. These include everything from greetings and gestures to table manners and business interaction.

5. Technology – Even we live in a high tech world, some countries are still lagging behind.

Cruise ships and freighter travel

Traveling by boat is great and can be a lot of fun no matter which of these methods you use.
Cruising on Cruise ships is a means of travel with some substantial benefits, but a few drawbacks too. The majority of people love them, but some people hate them. Cruising makes it easy to visit several places in a single trip without the need to repack your belongings and sit in a car/train/bus/plane to travel to each one; your hotel room comes along with you, and even provides the transportation. Cruise lines offer widely varying itineraries. They can last for

1. A few days at sea or to a nearby port-of-call. These may be offered as an introduction to cruising, or just as an opportunity to party.

2. One or two weeks to visit ports and sights in a particular region, per “Cruise types” below.

3. A month or more to see a region of the world, or three or more months to go around the world; a lifetime experience.

Freighter travel is a less crowded, cheaper alternative for crossing a sea or ocean, not using airplanes or commercial cruise ships or ferries.

Two short advices:

1. If you become ill: Report it as soon as possible, very preferably by cabin phone!

2. Don’t spend too much time on the sun unprotected.

When someone mentions travelling, it is also considered for fun and pleasure. But business travel is not really like it. It is usually a trip where you don’t have any time to do anything you want in that other country. Classic high-travel job is travelling salesman. Consulting is also considered as high-travel job but of course on a somewhat less intense scale. Business travel has upsides and downsides.
Upsides:

1. It’s free. The company is paying for everything. The travelling ticket, accommodation, food, everything.

2. New experience. Even you don’t have a lot of time to do what you want being in another country brings new experience.

3. Bonus money. Some companies give extra money to the business traveler.
Downsides:

1. Relationships. You will not be able to see your family and everyone else you love during that time.

2. Health. Being in another country is always new and the risk of getting sick is higher because your immune system is not prepared. Also practicing sport and eating well is hard when you’re on a business travel.

3. More stress. It is harder to work alone in another country. After you’re done, you don’t have friends to tell how bad your day was or anyone you trust to say what you’ve done.

4. Cost. If you’re independent contractor, this is big downside. If you decide to go on a business travel as independent contractor, make sure you will bring back success.
