In the past, when people want to watch DVD movies, the common way will be either purchase or rent from a neighborhood video outlet. But, in this internet technology world, it is totally different now. These days, people will just download DVD from the internet, right from the comfort of their home.

There are many websites that allowed purchasing and downloading of DVD. There are mainly two different model of website, one is using the membership schemes and the other one is single download purchase model.

The difference between the two different types of model are membership sites normally offer unlimited or fixed number of downloads for a fixed price per month whereas single download site is charging you by per download basis.

There are pros and cons between these two different model. Depending on how often you watch movies, they may be benefit to you. For example, if you are going to download and watch many movies every month, then, it is more economical to join a membership site as they provide more download options.

Cost Of Lasik Surgery

In the past, when people started to wear glasses or contact lens due to poor eyesights, they are basically no longer able to get rid of them, meaning, they are going to put up with glasses or contact lens for their whole life. But, with the arrival of lasik surgery, it is now possible to go for the procedure once and eventually no longer need to wear glasses or contact lens anymore.

Lasik surgery has been around for quite a while, it is not so popular in the past because the price then is high and too costly. But, as technology advances, years goes by, the cost of lasik surgery dropped to a level where many people are able to afforded to pay for. For example, a New York Lasik Surgery will cost roughly three to four thousand dollars and although it still look high, but, when you count the total cost of changing glasses and contact lens for years, the lasik surgery looks much cheaper.

When you decided on going for a lasik surgery to correct your vision, never ever consider price as the main factors. Beside cost, there are many things that you need to consider; things like the surgeons track record, skilled, success rate. You should seek advices from friends or relatives that had been for the procedure before. Try to find out more information before you set your mind on the surgeon.

Cellphone Camera And Digital Camera

It looks impossible that a cellphone camera will ever replace a digital camera, at least at the moment. But, when you look at how the mobile technology evolved, there is still a distant possibility that the most unthinkable thought can be realized in times to come. Take a look at the latest range of cell phones models, they all comes with the standard functionality of having a high resolution megapixel built-in camera and just a few years back, it is non-existent at all. Again, the picture taken with the cell phone camera is almost comparable to the one take with a digital camera, so, is it possible?

If you consider the many advantages of a cellphone camera over a digital camera, you may likely hope that one will comes across soon. First, it is almost a straight knockout when you consider the weight of a cell phones and a digital camera. If you are traveling, which one is lighter and easier for you to carry? Then, if you saw a nice scene that you want to take a quick snapshots, which is easier for you to aim, focus and shoot. Thinks of the various steps you need to do with a digital camera, you will need to take it out from your bag, then, removes the casing, switch the power on, and then wait seconds wait before it is ready for taking picture. It is so much easier with a cell phones camera, just aim and shoot, isn’t it?

The most important of all, cell phones has become part of everyone’s life. It is more likely that you will forget to bring along a digital camera rather than a cellphones as we tempt to check that we carried the cell phone whenever we leave the home.

There are still many areas that a cellphones needs to improve between it can catch up with a digital camera. In my opinion, it probably won’t be able to replace a digital camera, but, in certain area, like when you travel, it is more handy and easier.

It will be interesting to see if there will be any changes in the technology that will help to take a cellphone camera further and eventually replacing a digital camera. With Nokia, Samsung and Sony Ericsson Phone being constantly doing research and updating their technology, don’t ever rule out that chance.
