We’ve listed the most common issues below, and exactly how you’d go about resolving them.

Weak Phone Battery Life

Low Battery on an iPhone
Low batteries are the worst, especially when you just charged them up…

AppleCare covers this, however if your saving your replacements for something more crucial like a damaged LCD or broken screen, then this is also not a big problem to solve. Often times the connection between the home button assembly becomes disconnected and this is definitely frustrating. Local cell repair shops often see these problems all the time, and can get this problem fixed faster than Apple, and without the delay that comes through the Apple location and process in Fort Worth and Arlington.

Broken LCD Screens

Cracked iPhone 6
Virtually everyone knows the plight of the cracked iPhone screen…

Everyone has broken their phone screen, and if they haven’t they have that one friend that is so clumsy they keep smashing their phone. While Apple has made serious improvements in fixing their screen replacement process in Fort Worth, but it still takes more than a day to get a new replacement phone (usually two actually).

While this does void your Apple warranty, if you are already looking at upgrading or simply want to solve an annoying hardware issue, your existing coverage is likely expired so local Fort Worth cell phone repair will be your best bet for convenience and cost.

Pharma Companies taking the fight online with E-commerce

A rapidly developing E-commerce industry in India has not only successfully tapped into the lifestyle and pattern of needs of their targeted buyers but have also managed to connect various other industries and retail chains with itself. The apparel and accessories, cosmetic, electronic and food chains are not being followed by the pharmaceutical industry too. E-commerce markets are no longer limited to lifestyle products but have begun including FMCG (Fast moving consumer goods) products and essentials like medicines too.

What are the advantages of E-pharmaceuticals?

The online platform has significantly reduced the time required to market a new product. Especially in the case of drugs and medicines, where these Pharmaceuticals would have to rely on retail stores, doctors and salesmen for their promotion, the advent of an E-commerce platform has completely changed the game. Each medicine or drug is now available with all details, users can not only research their preferred medications, but also purchase them right away from the comfort of their keyboard.  This author research and found out how to purchase peptides online within a matter of minutes. A new drug will have an established platform for marketing and promotions. This process makes the medicines very visible to the buyer. A buyer who is aware of the basic composition of a prescribed drug, will now be able to compare the rates of the same medicine being marketed by different pharmaceutical industries. E-pharmaceutical industries also make it possible for people to have access to medicines are all times of the day. Where in contraposition, a retail medical store would have been shut after a particular time. E-pharmas also provide extensive reductions in price and frequent discounts.

E-Commerce is now affecting almost all industries, even pharmaceuticals.

How big are these E-Pharma industries?

According to the IBEF (Indian Brand Equity Foundation), the Indian Pharmaceutical market has expanded by 17.46% in the last decade (2005-2016). In monetary value, it has grown to become an industry worth US$ 36.7 billion, where the online sector is alone worth around US$ 18 billion. Currently India has about 50 E-Pharma startups.

Are there disadvantages?

While e-pharmas may seem to have tremendous advantages, there are some loopholes and drawbacks. For instance, there isn’t a very well-articulated legal framework for electronic pharmaceuticals. Consequentially, this also means that there is a lot of illegal activity that ranges from the unregistered E-pharmas to selling unauthorized and banned drugs. This also includes networks through which illegal drugs are shipped cross-border without any valid prescription. Adjoining to this, the site being the seller; there appears to be no way of assessing if and whether the pharmacist happens to be a certified one or not.

The only existing law for the pharmaceutical industry happens to be Drugs and Cosmetics Act that was introduced in 1940. Ostensibly this law doesn’t include the electronic or internet section to it as it was framed much before the advent of internet. The only basic E-commerce regulating law that exists is the IT Act or the Information Technology Act of 2000 which falls under the Cyber Law section of India. The IPA or the Indian Pharmacy association, which is a panel board of the main players in the pharmaceutical industry, have managed to put forth the problems and loopholes existing in the system. While there might be a burgeoning number of these E-pharmas, it doesn’t mean that the process is any easier. These industries continue to face legal harassment because of a stringent set of rules that are either outdated or do not have a clear framework to abide by.

Brexits Affect on Small and Medium Sized Tech Businesses

One of the most shocking moments on the geopolitical arena in 2016 was the decision of the UK to leave the European Union. As a completely unexpected event that stunned the world, the voters in the England, Wales, Scotland and the Northern Ireland decided to take their country out of the EU. For practically all analysts and experts, the result came as a shock, but more worryingly, the same reaction was provided by the political establishment on both sides of the English Channel. In the immediate aftermath, there was no indication what would happen next, especially when it comes to the economic and financial repercussion of the decision.

Several months later, Theresa May, the new PM of the country, declared that the UK will trigger the article 50 of the European charter which begins a two-year separation between a country and the EU before the summer of 2017. Now, when it is clear that the UK will leave the EU well before 2020, many are wondering what will be the repercussions, especially when it comes to those who work in the tech and IT fields. Because of that problem, here is an analysis of the repercussion and Brexits affect on small and medium sized tech businesses operating in the country.


Loss of EU Funds

A range of funds of the EU which are now accessible to entrepreneurs and businesspersons of the EU will dry up with the separation of the two entities. This would be a big problem for all tech startups and small emerging companies which desire to somehow lessen the burden of starting a new business. The same would also apply for subsidies and any other forms of financial support coming from the EU funds. It is certain that the UK will not be able to replenish all of these in a fast manner, which places these current and future businesses in a tight spot if they received any EU financial support. Some might alleviate this problem by moving to the EU country, but not all of the startups can or could do this.

Potential Travel and Work Permit Issues

As pointed out in this article where WebCreationUK reviews the effect of Brexit on small businesses, the issue of immigration was one of the biggest in the Brexit referendum. But, once the UK leaves the EU, the ability to easily acquire work visas and other permits for EU citizens in the country will stop. The same will also mean that the British expats have to do a lot more to start working in the EU nations. All of this will provide a strain on the exchange of skilled labor, which is one of the most important factors in running a small and medium IT or tech business. Without the possibility of easy introduction new employees into their systems, UK companies will probably get into a position of being under-staffed with senior and specialist workers.

Access to a Single Market

Like with the movement of people, the movement of goods during any type of trading will also be different. When the UK leaves the EU it will also leave its single market. While many British politicians want to keep this agreement even after Brexit, it appears the EU leaders are adamantly against this. For tech companies, this means that they will need to work additionally on making sure their projects adhere to the EU regulation. Additionally, those companies which fail to do this will lose access to an incredibly important market, so everyone will have to invest money and time in making sure this does not happen.

For the current perspective, UK tech companies, especially medium or small ones, have very little to gain through Brexit, but plenty of things to lose if the divorce process ends with an isolated UK that could struggle to access the EU market in any meaningful business sense.
