What is an Ultrabook?


With a lot of types of computer these days, some of you may get overloaded with these techie words and information with the latest technologies these days. So what is an Ultrabook?

Here are some definitions I found online that may help you tell and find out what is an ultrabook.

An Ultrabook is a higher-end type of subnotebook defined by Intel. Ultrabooks are designed to feature reduced bulk without compromising performance and battery life. They use low-power Intel Core processors, solid-state drives, and unibody chassis to help meet this criteria. Due to their limited size, they typically omit common laptop features such as disc drives and ethernet ports.

- Wikipedia -

The definition from wikipedia may be too techie or brain overload to some of you so hopefully this definition below from Tech Target will be more definitive and help you understand.

An ultrabook is a category of thin and light laptop computers designed to bridge the market gap between tablets and premium notebook PCs. Ultrabooks provide more business-friendly features than tablets and more portability than enterprise-class notebooks....

Ultrabooks are sometimes confused with netbooks. In comparison, ultrabooks use more powerful processors and have better video performance, faster storage, more RAM and larger screen sizes. As a consequence, ultrabooks are significantly more expensive than netbooks. However, ultrabook prices are expected to drop as low as $500 as Intel transitions to its "Hawell" system-on-a-chip (SoC) processors.


- Tech Target -

Now, to people who are like me who can learn and understand more through visual learning here is a video discussing about "WHAT IS AN ULTRABOOK? " from Channel Intel - I'm not sure but I think it's the official YouTube Channel of Intel.




Here's another one from Locker Gnome - one of my favorite source in YouTube, some may find him weird but I like him very much. I find smart people sexy! Anyway, go watch this:



What I like about Ultrabooks its thin and light - I like this not because I'm fat it's because it means it will be easy to carry around and that's a total plus for a home base worker like me. One of the plus features for me is the long battery life, I sometimes go out and work in a cafe or somewhere since I do travel from time to time and being able to use my computer longer can help me be productive while in a travel.

One of the things I don't like living in my country is that we don't have access on the latest technologies. If we do, they're totally expensive. I've seen (in person) few ultrabooks so far. I don't visit much the computer shops here in Cebu Philippnes because I just get envy and droll on these technologies. I felt like I'm killing myself in getting envy.

Ultrabooks are totally more expensive compared to the netbooks. The netbooks are already expensive for me and how much more the ultrabook? I've been to the Toshiba store here in Cebu and saw this really awesome ultrabook. It has all these specs that I need and want and of course it is very expensive (5 to 6 months of my salary - that's how expensive it is for me) but I really would love to have that.

Introducing Google Page Rank And Alexa Rank

Introducing Google Page Rank And Alexa Rank

There are some bloggers who tries to get in touch with me asking me about SEO, page rank, alexa, why they have to rank and so on. That's why I'm including this topic here at Bloggers Tech because of this, in this way at least through blogging I could help to you guys in getting to know the importance of SEO and how to do it yourself. 

I know I haven't discussed it that much here but I'll try to get some of my time to discuss it thoroughly with everyone. I want to start at the basics since I don't want to overload everyone with terms that you're not familiar with.

So if some of you are new, please do take time to watch the video discussing about "What is Search Engine Optimization (SEO)?" where I tried to explain in simplest way that I can.

Today, I want to talk about Google Page Rank and the Alexa Rank, in this way you could tell the difference between the two and you'll also get the basic information and get the idea out of it, just also to add up to our blogging tips.

Google Page Rank signifies how crucial your website is in comparison to all other websites and Alexa Rank is the amount of site visitors your website will get in relation to all other websites for the Internet. You're aiming to have a higher Google Page Rank(also referred to as PR) and a lower Alexa Rank. 

Taking a look at both of these calculated features does is provide you some plan of how effectively, or how terribly, your website is accomplishing compared to all other websites. Allows discover both of these rankings inside of a small a lot more depth.

What is Google Page Rank?

The co-founders of Google, Larry Page and Sergey Brin, illustrate Google Page Rank to be a tool created to rank a website that is definitely outlined while in the Google search index. 

A Page Rank of the web page is presented over a scale of 0-10. Page Rank 0 may be the lowest probable rating for the website and conversely a 10 is definitely the optimum rating probable. The higher Page rank is outlined because of the total, importance (Page Rank) and relevance of websites that link towards the web page in dilemma. 

Whenever a web page backlinks to a different web page, Google take into account that to get a vote to the web page in problem and so of some value.

You will find a formula connected to how Page Rank is calculated but to the applications of the posting it truly is as well in depth, but when you might be considering the idea driving Page Rank (PR) then a fast search on Google will present successful.


What is Alexa Rank?

The Alexa Rank differs to Google PR. Alexa rank websites based mostly exclusively on traffic to your website. Alexa rank websites in descending purchase in direction of 0, exactly where essentially the most hugely visited website about the Internet is provided a rank of 0. At this stage in time the highest a few rated websites (most guests) on Alexa are, 0 - Yahoo, 1 - Google and 2 - MySpace. 

In accordance to Alexa these 3 websites obtain the most traffic to the Internet. Alexa Rankings differ from one into a billion. Just about every website within the world is provided during the Alexa Rank, therefore the scale on the Alexa rating is continually shifting in relation to other websites within the Internet.

The Apple iPad vs iPad 2 vs New iPad

The Apple iPad vs iPad 2 vs New iPad

As some of you may know and though we do have an iPad giveaways here in Bloggers Tech, it's ironic that I don't have an Apple iPad of my own. Honestly, I'm just waiting for the iPad to be cheaper and then the iPad 2 came out and obviously the first iPad becomes cheap but then I want the iPad 2. Now, the New iPad (a.k.a. iPad 3) came out and it's crazy! So I ask myself when can I grab the new iPad, maybe someday but my hands is itching for it. :D

Before we start, I would like to inform everyone that Bloggers Tech is now an affiliate of Apple but I'm just affiliated with their apps and not the whole Apple store. So yes, they're not hosting or sponsoring the iPad giveaways. 

But then nothing's gonna stop me on letting you guys avail the Apple iPad here at Bloggers Tech and have the iPad best buy now. As of now I only have the Amazon store for Bloggers Tech, I don't like the current Apple's third party affiliate program for the Apple store.

Amazon Store of Bloggers Tech

Below is the amazon store of Bloggers Tech, first generation of iPad to the new iPad is available. I didn't include the iPad with a network (AT&T and Verizon) but you could make a request and let me know if you prefer to include that too.

It will be really great if you could buy iPad through Bloggers Tech because you could help me in maintaining and keeping this blog alive. Keep doing what I am doing now and sharing some tips, tricks, information and news. So if you're planning to buy an ipad, then have the best buy iPad here at Bloggers Tech!

But to help you decide and know the difference among the Apple iPad released here's an informative and helpful infographic on the Apple iPad. Below you'll find the comparison on the iPad First Gen, iPad 2, the New iPad also known as the iPad 3. So I hope this will enlighten you all about the Apple iPad and get the best buy iPad gadget!


iPad vs iPad 2 vs New iPad best buy

I don't have my own Apple iPad yet, even just the first gen Ipad, or the iPad 2 or the new iPad 3 because it's really expensive and I want to have the best buy iPad price I could grab. Though some of you may say it's not that expensive, it's expensive $300 in my country could already pay one semester for college, or pay all my monthly bills and groceries. So rather than buying iPad, I go for keeping it for any emergencies and paying bills.

For those who have used the Bloggers Tech iPad Store above, thank you so much for grabbing the iPad best buy price through us. 


How about you? 

Do you already have the new iPad or are you still in the first gen iPad? How useful the iPad for you? Share your thoughts and cheers!

Blogging for Children: Starting them Young

Blogging for Children: Starting them Young

Encouraging youngsters to partake themselves in today’s modern technology may be hard and troubling, specifically once they devote the majority of their time on it. If you happen to figure it out, the positive aspects of getting in front of your computer and recognizing the fundamentals, you may teach it for your children and voila!

The child’s development in the art of writing at a flourishing age is really an enrichment of one's child’s revolutionary thoughts. Moreover, blogging can have a number of positive aspects:


Sense of Responsibility

Let your kid realize that blogging will not be basically posting any particular accountabilities are brought up like updating, posting on their blogs, answering reader’s queries, sources and many more.

12 Things to do AFTER You've Written a NEW Blog Post

12 Things to do AFTER You've Written a NEW Blog Post


I've been blog hopping awhile, just visiting blogs to know more about them, what their writing, how they're doing and so on. So I noticed some of their mistakes and needed steps they should take but they've taken for granted, a step that may help them get more what they have now and be among the successful blogger.

Since I found this infographic online, I thought I should share this with everyone to help and inform you on the steps that you should do after you've written and published a new blog post. As this is also a part of the Bloggers Tech blogging tips!

Doing at least 6 steps might also help in getting the best out of your blog. I don't do everything said here since I don't have that enough time to do it but I make sure that the importance steps are being done in this way I could gain traffic, help people and spread the news! But then, if you could do all 12 would be great and you'll surely get a quality traffic, that means visitors to your blog that are really interested about your topic.

I believe this will be also be really helpful to everyone in taking that step forward in being a successful blogger. This will eat time, I know but if you can do it or afford some automation tools then go for it!

So here it is, the 12 things to do after you've written a new blog post and publish it.

12 Things to do AFTER You've Written a NEW Blog Post


So to summarize (and since you can't copy and paste it on your notes) here are the 12 things to do after you've written a new blog post:


  • Keyword Optimize your Post
  • Syndicate your Content
  • Shorten your URL's Content
  • Tailor Your Status Update
  • Post Teasers on Other Relevant Sites
  • Bookmark Your Content
  • Comment on other Blogs
  • Seek and Assist on Twitter
  • Add to E-mail Signature
  • Share your Blog Post to Target Customers
  • Add your Blog Post to your Next News Letter
  • Ask Other Bloggers to Mention Your Post
I would advice that you grab these and post it on your notes so that you can easily be reminded of these steps and be able to experience and be one of the known successful bloggers.

I'll be discussing about this next week here at Bloggers Tech to help you out and guide you in doing these steps, since I know the last step might be hard to some who are shy like me. But just write an e-mail to these bloggers, close your eyes, take a deep breathe and click send. :D


Don't just keep on writing new blog post without promoting them online and marketing your blog. People will not just discover it when you publish it, you need to love it first before others will. That's why I always say that you must love and passionate about your niche so that you're motivated and will love to spread blog posts and information about your blog.

Social Media Image Sizing Guide - Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, YouTube, Pinterest, Google+


Bloggers do need to have a social media account - personal or not - for many reasons. It is important that we also make it look at least inviting for our readers and if you can we should also make a trademark on our social media accounts on these social media websites so that people and especially your readers can easily tell that it's YOU and/or your blog account. They could tell the difference between other blogs or sites and you through making that stand out look online.

The problem of some designers and some people who would like to create a customized image for their accounts is that the image sizing for the social media accounts. From Facebook covers, Twitter back drop, or Google+ covers, etc. they have different sizes that they require so that your image will be the exact fit and will look great when your readers and fans sees it.

I found this infographic from ORIGINAL GINGER wherein it has all the major social media image sizing guide and I would like to share it with everyone here in Bloggers Tech.


The social media included in this image sizing guide are the following:

  • Facebook
  • Twitter
  • Linkedin
  • YouTube
  • Pinterest
  • Google+

So obviously in this guide you'll find the sizes for Facebook cover, Facebook profile picture, Facebook favorite app, Twitter Background, Twitter profile image, Linkedin avatar or profile image size, Linkedin banner size, YouTube channel avatar size, YouTube channel background, Pinterest avatar, Pinterest maximum image size for pinning, Google plus single banner and Google+ profile image, and of course Google plus company page banner size.


Anyway, here is the Social Media Image Sizing Guide:




If you've got some corrections or update on this feel free to leave it as a comment. So that everyone would know the latest update on this. I would totally appreciate that too. :)

Hopefully soon I'll be able to include this in my services wherein I could create and design this for you. But with my busy schedule and the pricing for this - since I have to make it affordable too - it's quiet complicated.

Thanks guys and enjoy!
