New and Emerging Trends In Real Estate Technology and Practice

The real estate business has taken a shape where technology plays a pivotal role in the search of houses. The property business has emerged as one of the most prominent industries for investment in the New Year. The business had suffered through the recession period but with the formation of the new government; the whole scenario changed. 

The overall growth in demand for housing across the country emerged as prominent and the investors are looking for the best houses across the country. At such a time, internet and mobile technology have come to be of great use. 

There are numerous online resources offering property details but no one does it like property portal housing.com. The portal has emerged as a prominent tool for searching property online and merely after three years of inception, it has a marked presence in the country. The overall growth in demand for housing across the country has been effectively captured. 

Additionally, one can also find other information like a home loan for purchasing a house in Mumbai or real estate brokers in Chennai. The use of technology and innovative new use of data analytics has helped the portal create an affirmative action related to search of homes across the country.




How is technology being used in the property business?

Over the past few years, property business across the country has suffered because of the recession that hit the markets of the country. This was a time when the golden goose of the Indian economy stopped laying eggs. Builders were forced to get creative to reach out to the end users. In the process, they supported those who created services that helped property seekers find homes reliably. This was the time when the technology also emerged in the country quite prominently. 

The overall growth of the use of internet and the success of online retail established internet as a popular medium across the country. The advent of the mobile devices and their popularity globally added another facet to the technology incorporated in property business. Portals like housing.com started to utilize these services to offer the best kind of online services literally in the hands of the end users. The overall growth in demand for housing across the country has emerged quite popularly. 

Property portal housing.com has emerged as one of the most prominent new sources for finding properties or property agents. The portal and the app of the portal both allow end users to search properties as well as real estate agents in Chennai and fifty nine other cities. The overall growth in demand for housing across the country has been considered to be positive and such online resources have made it very easy for the end users to find houses and property related products.


Why would technology prevail?

It is believed that the there would be billions of smart-phone users across the planet by 2020. The availability of smart-phones and world wide web has allowed the property business to proliferate to the furthest extents of the country; which was not possible using conventional means. 

The availability of information at hand has not only helped end users but also the builders who are now able to track the preferences of the property seekers.


In Conclusion

Technology in real estate sector is here to prevail.

Capdase Beat SOHO Portable Bluetooth Speaker Review

I recently got this beautiful little but powerful item from Capdase, their Beat SOHO Portable Bluetooth Speaker!

Just last year I’ve been slowly buying devices that are wireless, especially if I need it for my laptop, like for the computer muse for example, I’ve gone wireless! There is NO wired mouse that have lasted at least 6 months to me, it’s even a miracle that it will last for 3 months. So I’ve decided to go wireless, even though I have to buy batteries for at least once a month.

I’ve also gone wireless for my headset, it’s a miracle that a headset will last for about 2 months to me. Though it’s expensive comparing to the wired once, I did go for it – I’ll post the review of that headset soon!

The BAD About Capdase Beat SOHO Portable Bluetooth Speaker

LAG
Since I already have my own wireless headset, I let my Mama use it. She sometimes use it while she’s in the bathroom (to have some music while taking a bath) and since most of the music that she wants are on YouTube, I’ve noticed that there’s a delay to the sound, and the video seems to load really slow. I’ve transferred the speaker nearer since I want to make sure it’s not slow because of my internet connection, but when I transfer it the video stream is fast again.

But then again if you’re going to use it far from where you should be watching, the lag is just fine.

Limited Distance
I was able to compare how far it go wireless, comparing it to my headset my wireless headset wins! I was able to go to the kitchen with my headset, but with the speaker I was just able to reach the dining area

Cut Off When Blocked
I actually discovered this when I left the speaker on the living room and I was passing by and the sound goes off because I seem to be blocking the signal. I tested it again, walk away and it was back, I put my hands (blocking the signal) on the speaker and the sounds goes off.

The GOOD About Capdase Beat SOHO Portable Bluetooth Speaker

Capdase Beat SOHO Portable Bluetooth Speaker Review
Great Sound for a Tiny Speaker
I was actually really excited to try it out when I got home. The good thing about it is that I think it’s already charged, so I can test it out immediately. I was amazed by its sound for a tiny thing. It sounds better when everything around you is quiet or you’re in a bathroom.

My Mama was so fond of it too. She loved it that now she claims it to be hers. She’s still learning how to use the Bluetooth though – she said at first “huh? What’s Bluetooth? There’s no tooth here!”.

Compatible with NOT ONLY Smartphone and Tablet, but also to your Laptop
As I was reading the manual, I was worried that it won’t work with my laptop since I do watch TV series from time to time, especially now that HOOQ just gave me a 1 month free access. So I’d love to use it from time to time.

What’s great is that it works very well with the laptop. But I did have to update my laptop’s Bluetooth software since I was having a problem connecting it at first with my laptop. No problem with my smartphone and tablet.

Next and Previous on the Speaker
Another thing that I love about this speaker is this. I don’t have to go to my phone or tablet to go for the next song or play it back again. I just have to move a switch left to right or vice versa to go for the next and previous song.

Conclusion

The Capdase Beat SOHO Portable Bluetooth Speaker is worth around P1,200 and if you’ll ask me if it’s worth it to buy? Yes it is! Bloggers Tech blog would like to give this speaker a rating of 4 stars out of 5 stars. There are still some problems but it’s fixable.

UrbanDenoiser Player – Safe Music in My Ears


As someone who spent a lot of time on my gadgets like my smartphone, and as someone who loves music, I do listen to music on my phone even I’m just at home, waiting or hanging out at the mall, or travelling to somewhere. And I’ve noticed, for the past years my hearing is not that good anymore.

But then, I was introduced to this app which is (as of now) available at the Apple Store and Windows Store (they said it will be soon available at Play Store) called Urban Denoiser Player. What is it? It’s simply a music player that will automatically adjust your phones volume when playing music depending on where you are. So, yes that’s why the title of this blog post is “safe music in my ears” because it will adjust the volume that will be safe for your ears and still get the best and satisfying sound.

What it does? Well, you’ll be surprise.

Automatic Volume Adjustment

There are features on this app, options that you can choose on how you want the app will act on when it comes to noises. Like for example, if you’re at home and don’t want to be disturbed or hear your siblings playing and laughing, you may want to choose the “Denoiser” mode, if you’re at the street walking or at the mall you may want to go for the “Surround” mode wherein the app will detect any noises and will adjust the volume when someone talks or ask you – isn’t that cool, no need to get your phone to adjust the volume or remove your headset.

Personalized Sound

We all have different preferences on how much is too loud, my Mom and I surely have a huge different. Sometimes the sound that is not loud enough for her, is too loud for me.

With Urban Denoiser Player’s “Natural Sound” mode, first you’ll be spending few minutes to the app so it could study or know what is the natural sound to you. Then of course, after that every time you choose this mode, the sound settings will be automatically adjust to your pleasing.

Sound Mode Combination

Of course, you want the sound settings that would be ideal for you and safe for your ears, at the same time ignore the noises around you or let it automatically adjust when there’s a noise that needed to be heard- like someone asking you something.

So, there’s an option to combine the modes. You may combine the Natural Sound to the Denoiser, or the Natural sound to Surround – so cool!

Anyway, I’m still waiting for it at the Play Store since I don’t own any Apple or Windows smartphone or gadgets. So hopefully, they’ll soon release their version for Androids at the Play Store soon!
