Camera and photos

The iPhone features a built in 2.0 mega pixel camera located on the back for still digital photos. It has no optical zoom, flash or auto focus, and does not support video recording. Version 2.0 of iPhone OS introduced the capability to embed location data in the pictures, producing decoded photographs.

The iPhone includes software that allows the user to upload, view, and e-mail photos. The user zooms in and out of photos by sliding two fingers further apart or closer together, much like Safari. The Camera application also lets users view the camera roll, the pictures that have been taken with the iPhone's camera. Those pictures are also available in the Photos application, along with any transferred from iPhoto or Aperture on a Mac, or Photo shop in Windows.

The layout of the music library is similar to that of an iPod or current Symbian S60 phones. The iPhone can sort its media library by songs, artists, albums, videos, play lists, genres, composers, pod casts, audio books, and compilations. Options are always presented alphabetically, except in play lists, which retain their order from tunes. The iPhone uses a large font that allows users to touch their selection. Users can rotate their device horizontally to access Cover Flow. Like on iTunes, it shows the different album covers in a scroll-through photo library. Scrolling is achieved by swiping a finger across the screen.

The iPhone supports gap less playback. Like the fifth generation iPods introduced in 2005, the iPhone can play video, allowing users to watch TV shows and films. Unlike other image-related content, video on the iPhone plays only in the landscape orientation, when the phone is turned sideways. Double tapping switches between wide-screen and full-screen video playback.

The iPhone allows users to purchase and download songs from the iTunes Store directly to their iPhone over Wi-Fi with the iTunes Wi-Fi Music Store, and as of Mac world San Francisco 2009, over the cellular data network.

The iPhone allows audio conferencing, call holding, call merging, caller ID, and integration with other cellular network features and iPhone functions. It only supports Voice dialing through third party applications and video calling is not supported at all.

The iPhone includes a visual voice mail (in some countries) feature allowing users to view a list of current voice mail messages on-screen without having to call into their voice mail. Unlike most other systems, messages can be listened to and deleted in a non-chronological order by choosing any message from an on-screen list. AT&T, O2, T-Mobile Germany, and Orange modified their voice mail infrastructure to accommodate this new feature designed by Apple.

A music ring tone feature was introduced in the United States on September 5, 2007. Users can create custom ring tones from songs purchased from the tunes Store for a small additional fee. The ring tones can be 3 to 30 seconds long from any part of a song, can fade in and out, pause from half a second to five seconds when looped, or loop continuously. All customizing can be done in tunes, and the synced ring tones can also be used for alarms. Custom ring tones can also be created using Apple's Garage Band software 4.1.1 or later (available only on Mac OS X) and third-party tools. Custom ring tones are not supported in some countries.

TRS connector

A TRS connector (tip, ring, and sleeve) also called an audio jack, phone plug, jack plug, stereo plug, mini-jack, or mini-stereo, is a common audio connector. It is cylindrical in shape, typically with three contacts, although sometimes with two (a TS connector) or four (a TRRS connector).

It was invented for use in telephone switchboards in the 19th century and is still widely used, both in its original quarter-inch (6.3 mm) size and in miniaturized versions. The connector's name is an initialize derived from the names of three conducting parts of the plug: Tip, Ring, and Sleeve – hence, TRS.

In the UK, the terms jack plug and jack socket are commonly used for the respectively male and female TRS connectors.

In the U.S., a female connector is called a jack. The terms phone plug and phone jack are commonly used to refer to TRS connectors, but are also sometimes used colloquially to refer to RJ11 and older telephone plugs and the corresponding jacks that connect wired telephones to wall outlets. (The similar terms phonon plug and phonon jack refers to RCA connectors.) To unambiguously refer to the connectors described here, the diameter or other qualifier is often added, e.g. 1/4-inch phone plug", "3.5 mm phone jack, and balanced phone jack or stereo phone plug for the three-contact version.

Touch screen

A touch screen is a display which can detect the presence and location of a touch within the display area. The term generally refers to touch or contact to the display of the device by a finger or hand. Touch screens can also sense other passive objects, such as a stylus. However, if the object sensed is active, as with a light pen, the term touch screen is generally not applicable. The ability to interact directly with a display typically indicates the presence of a touch screen.

Until the early 1980s, most consumer touch screens could only sense one point of contact at a time, and few have had the capability to sense how hard one is touching. This is starting to change with the commercialization of multi-touch technology.

The touch screen has two main attributes. First, it enables you to interact with what is displayed directly on the screen, where it is displayed, rather than indirectly with a mouse or touchpad. Secondly, it lets one do so without requiring any intermediate device, again, such as a stylus that needs to be held in the hand. Such displays can be attached to computers or, as terminals, to networks. They also play a prominent role in the design of digital appliances such as the personal digital assistant (PDA), satellite navigation devices and mobile phones.

Text input

For text input, the device implements a virtual keyboard on the touchscreen. It has automatic spell checking and correction, predictive word capabilities, and a dynamic dictionary that learns new words. The predictive word capabilities have been integrated with the dynamic virtual keyboard so that users will not have to be extremely accurate when typing—i.e. touching the edges of the desired letter or nearby letters on the keyboard will be predictively corrected when possible.

The keys are somewhat larger and spaced farther apart when in landscape mode, currently available using the Safari web browser and certain third-party applications with Landscape Mode support. A lack of focus on text-messaging is widely considered a chief weakness of the iPhone, although a large number of users evidently have no issue using the device for this purpose. The lack of a physical keyboard allows for the keyboard to be optimized for different applications and languages via software changes only, instead of requiring a costly additional fabrication process

Drinking Water

Every living creature needs clean and safe drinking water. How much do you need? It depends - your size, activity level and the weather all make a difference.

The water you drink is a combination of surface water and groundwater. Surface water includes rivers, lakes and reservoirs. Groundwater comes from underground. The United States has one of the safest water supplies in the world, but drinking water quality can vary from place to place. It depends on the condition of the source water and the treatment it receives. Treatment may include adding fluoride to prevent cavities and chlorine to kill germs.

Your water supplier must give you annual reports on drinking water. The reports include where your water came from and what contaminants are in it.

iPhone Battery

The iPhone features a built-in rechargeable battery to is not user-replaceable, similar to offered iPods, but unlike to most existing cellular phones. If the battery in advance reaches the end of its life, the phone can be return to Apple and replace for free while still in guarantee, one year at purchase and extensive to two years with AppleCare. The cost of having Apple provide a new battery and restore it when the iPhone is out of guarantee is, in the United States, US$79 and US$6.95 for delivery.

Since July 2007 third gathering battery packs have been obtainable at a much lower price than Apple's own battery substitute program. These kits often include a small screwdriver and a teaching leaflet, but as with many newer iPod models the series in the original iPhone has been soldered in. Therefore a soldering iron is necessary to install the new battery. This is not the case with the iPhone 3G as it uses a different series fitted with a connector.

The iPhone 3G's battery is stated to be competent of only if up to seven hours of video, six hours of web browsing on Wi-Fi or five on 3G, ten hours of 2G talk time, or five on 3G, 24 hours of music, or 300 hours of reserve.

iPhone's Audio

The iPhone's headset are similar to those of most current smartphones, incorporate a microphone. A multipurpose badge in the microphone can be used to play or pause music, skip tracks, and reply or end phone calls without moving the iPhone. The 3.5 mm TRS connector for the headphones is situated on the top left corner. The headphone socket on the original iPhone is buried into the casing. The recess is narrow when compare to many headphone jacks, making them unsuited without the use of an adapter. The iPhone 3G has a flush mount headphone socket.

Wireless earpieces that use Bluetooth knowledge to converse with the iPhone are sold unconnectedly. It does not support stereo audio.

The loudspeaker is used both for handsfree operation and media playback, but does not hold voice footage.

Composite or part video at up to 576i and stereo audio can be output from the dock connector using an adapter sell by Apple.

iPhone Hardware

Screen and interface

The 9 cm liquid crystal display HVGA touchscreen with scratch-resistant glass is purposely formed for use with a finger, or multiple fingers for multi-touch sensing. Because the screen is a capacitive touchscreen, bare skin is necessary; a stylus or a normal glove prevent the essential electrical conductivity.

Almost all input is given throughout the touch screens, which understand multifaceted gestures using multi-touch. The iPhone user interfaces enable the user to move the content itself up or down by a touch-drag movement of the finger. For example, zooming in and out of web pages and photos is done by insertion two fingers on the screen and dispersal them farther apart or bringing them closer together.

Similarly, scrolling during a long list in a menu works as if the list is pasted on the outer surface of a wheel: the wheel can be "spun" by sliding a finger over the present from bottom to top.

A single "home" hardware button below the show brings up the main menu. Subselections are finished via the touchscreen. The iPhone utilizes a full-paged display, with context-specific submenus at the top and/or bottom of each page, sometimes depending on screen direction. Detail pages display the comparable of a "Back" button to return to the parent menu.

The iPhone has three physical switches on its sides: wake/sleep, volume up/down, and ringer on/off. These are made of artificial on the original iPhone and metal on the iPhone 3G. All other multimedia and phone operation are done via the touchscreen. The iPhone 3G features a full plastic back to augment GSM signal strength. It also comes in white wholly for the 16GB model.

The iPhone is an Internet-enabled multimedia smartphone deliberate and marketed by Apple Inc. It has a multi-touch display with virtual keyboard and buttons, but a minimal quantity of hardware input. The iPhone's functions take in those of a camera phone and portable media player in adding to text messaging and visual voicemail. It also offers Internet services including e-mail, web browsing, and local Wi-Fi connectivity. The first age group phone hardware was quad-band GSM with EDGE; the second age group also adds UMTS with HSDPA.

Apple announces the iPhone on 9 January 2007. The statement was proceeding by rumors and speculation that dispersed for several months. The iPhone was initially introduce in the United States on 29 June 2007 and is in the procedure of being introduce worldwide. It was named Time magazine's creation of the Year in 2007. On 11 July 2008, the iPhone 3G was unconfined and supported faster 3G data speeds and assist GPS.

Types of protein

Proteins are prepared up of amino acids. Think of amino acids as the build blocks. There are 20 dissimilar amino acids that join jointly to make all type of protein. Some of these amino acids can't be finished by our bodies, so these are recognized as essential amino acids. It's necessary that our diet supply these.

In the diet, protein source are labeled according to how many of the vital amino acids they provide:

* A complete protein basis is one that provides all of the necessary amino acids. You may also hear this source called high excellence proteins. Animal-based foods; for example, meat, poultry, fish, milk, eggs, and cheese are measured complete protein source.

* An incomplete protein basis is one that is low in one or more of the necessary amino acids. Complementary proteins are two or more unfinished protein sources that together give adequate amount of all the necessary amino acids.

A flower, also identified as a bloom or blossom, is the reproductive construction found in flowering plants. The biological function of a flower is to intervene the union of male sperm with female ovum in arrange to produce seeds. The process begin with pollination, is followed by fertilization, most important to the arrangement and dispersal of the seeds. For the higher plants, seeds are the next invention, and serve as the primary means by which persons of a species are discrete across the landscape. The grouping of flowers on a plant is called as inflorescence.

In adding to serving as the reproductive organs of flowering plants, flowers have long been accepted and used by humans, mainly to beautify their situation but also as a source of food.
