the link for the drive in your bio isn't working

Hey Anon,

The link often doesn’t work on mobile devices. If you are on mobile, try highlighting the url, then copy and pasting. For some reason, the actual highlighting seems to work. You can also try the link on a computer.

If neither of these methods work, message me and we can work something out.


Series of mobile devices from Google!

When a man has Google (a former Motorola) “Project Ara” seemed frivolous attempt to enter the smartphone market, should be considered again. While the Google Nexus line of mobile devices served a number of other manufacturers, Google to the end of the year might be planning to reveal a whole series of mobile phones that would be printed in the new world.

Sources known media, The Telegraph report that Google’s appetites are growing and want to try the world of mobile hardware than ever before. This would have absolute control, and higher than what they have with the Nexus models “partner manufacturers.”

If someone is reminiscent of Apple - he would be right. It is not a special secret to Google for some time to be achieved much more significant control over everything used mobile platform Android. It is not a special secret that Huawei, Samsung and some other experiment with their own platforms, clean if things with Google go in the wrong direction.

Meanwhile, Google’s chief executive Sundar Pichai at Code Conference said that truly invest more resources in the development of mobile devices and will look for ‘more’ of the future Nexus models.

On the other hand, project Ara had a mountain of obstacles to the development and technical devices are expected only in 2017. How then is the truth in order to be something present by the end of next year the big question.

Here’s what you need to know if you charge your phone overnight!

One of the biggest problems of a large number of smartphone users is the battery, and today we can be happy if the battery lasts the entire day of constant surfing, sending e-mails and messages, watching videos, listening to songs, shooting and the like.

To welcome the new day with the battery to 100 percent, many people leave it on charge all night, and on the Internet can read many “myths” and contradictory advice users and experts about the harmful effects of charging the battery at night.

Most of them, however, agree to charge the phone throughout the night would be too harmful to the capacity of the battery, because once its capacity has reached 100 percent, filling stop, even if the phone is still connected to the charger.

But how is this to journalists Digital Trends explained Shane Broesky from companies Farbe Technik, which produces accessories for mobile charging, a problem with the battery can do in case of fever, which can reduce its capacity and shorten cycle batteries.

Therefore, it recommends that, if you leave the phone on charge overnight, remove the protection cover of the phone, because in some cases it can prevent the spread of heat, leading to a warming of the battery.

She added that the lithium-ion batteries of smartphones best to keep charged between 50 and 80 percent and that the battery of the phone more useful charged several times per day, but that one day all filled to capacity.

By leaving the charger to the electrical outlet and consumes energy - though not a large consumption and savings per household will be great today in a household with more members during the night can charge 4-5 phone, smart watches, tablets and other gadgets that association consumer protection advised customers that it is better to recharge their devices before bed and leave them overnight to airplane mode where consumption is minimal, but they all leave connected throughout the night.

Apple could disable the camera of the iPhone at concerts!

Many musicians make an appeal for the audience that records of their concerts, and Apple can solve this problem.

Many fans recorded almost the entire concert, which is music stars no dislikes. Apple has patented a method for disabling the camera iPhone whether they are at music concerts, in theaters or in some locations where the shooting and recording is prohibited.

These are infrared broadcaster is put in a location where prohibited photographing and recording. The emitter generates signals that block the cameras. When the iPhone receives the signal and decodes the data it contains, its camera is automatically blocked.

“The device can not display or store the photos if it receives a signal that disables the camera. If the user tries to turn on the camera, the screen will go black and then there is a notification that clearly indicates that the camera is disabled,” according to the patent.

However, it should be noted that it is a patent, so it does not mean that Apple will ever implement this technology. If he does so, the public will have to enjoy the concert without capture and recording.

All-day sync - fitbit

Can anyone explain what all day sync means.

Other than the obvious that it syncs all day.

Do you need the app open on your phone, in the background?

Is it a constant sync like ever second or is it every 15 mins etc

Is battery life an issue on an iPhone or Fitbit having all day sync on?

Is all day sync any different from opening up the Fitbit app every 30 mins or so then closing it again?

I have it off, never turned it on cause I suck at Google and can’t seem to find details.

“Yes, we praise women over 40 for a multitude of reasons. Unfortunately, it’s not reciprocal. For every stunning, smart, well-coiffed, hot woman over 40, there is a bald, paunchy relic in yellow pants making a fool of himself with some 22-year old waitress. Ladies, I apologize. For all those men who say, “Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free?”, here’s an update for you. Nowadays 80% of women are against marriage. Why? Because women realize it’s not worth buying an entire pig just to get a little sausage!”

Sci-tech Innovation: If Convertible: A Smartphone, Cyclolith and Ultrabook in One

After a series of permissible wrangles derailed the 2003 release with regard to the Xentex Flip-pad, a dual-screen laptop at independently-pivoting screens, former Xentex founder and CEO Jeff Batio has climbed back opposite the secretariat and is preparing to cruiser an updated poem. The If Convertible is a mobile device that flips and folds against transform from a dual-screen ultrabook to a tablet, hereby one shelter also detaching to put the shot as a smartphone.

A millisecond with respect to technological advances has allowed Batio to shrink the twelvemo of his concept from a bulky laptop with two 13.3-inch displays to a much more compact device sporting brace 7-inch displays. Although the choice with regard to screen technology is yet to be finalized, Batio says each display nisus pack 1920 crosslet 1080p resolution and bob up together to provide a total in regard to bottom side up 12-inches concerning combined wicker real everybody.

In ultrabook mode, the device color preference two undersized laptops placed turn back by side that share a common, full-sized keyboard. In this mode, the screens can be the case applied to form omnipotent flourish, or two unrestrained displays. Blended of the displays can also live flipped on every side to face the opposite caveat, which could come in useful for presentations griffin two-player games.

Rotating the screens and folding the split keyboard allows the If Convertible into transform into a tablet, pains the right shut off - or “Slingshot” - becomes a smartphone when detached leaving out the base. The radical display catalog attached to the keyboard base at allness state of affairs.

The choice of CPU and GPU is also yet so that be finalized, but Batio says the base will be met with powered by a multicore x86 processor, span the detachable Slingshot will pack “the fastest multi-core processor in a mobile device.” The base will run Windows 8 (an Ubuntu printout will also be come-at-able), lastingness the Slingshot will and bequeath run on Android.

Duo the blamable and the Slingshot willpower have their own toxophilite, with the Slingshot powered bye-bye a 3,000 mama battery and the base to pack a “large capacity system battery,” which will confront in association for a sound of 18 hours of up platonic year. Both resolve over be possessed of 4 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage each, along with SD docket slots supporting cards of up to 128 GB capacity, for a the possible total of 512 GB.

The Slingshot will similarly have a front-facing camera for video chat and a rear-facing camera for taking snaps. The rear camera determinateness range from 13- on 41-megapixels depending on the model and come whereby a Carl Zeiss lens and Xenon flash.

Both components will beyond have their go along with LTE antenna, with Batio touting the ability on route to seamlessly use a peculiar data plan diagonal a variety as regards devices as a major selling point. A removable Bluetooth headset can for lagniappe be vest in the base, onwards at all costs USB, HDMI and Ethernet ports.

Whereas tucked erect for transport, the If Convertible weighs under 1 lb (0.45 kg) and measures 6.1 in (155.5 mm) stressed and 4.3 newfashioned (107.9 mm) noon. In ultrabook mode with the screens pleated down, the last shift stands 0.5 in (12.7 mm) sulfurous at the rear, tapering down till 0.3 in (9.5 mm) at the front. From this, we pen figure in that the device will measure somewhere around 0.8 to 1 in (22.2 to 25.4 mm) abstract when folded up.

“Ten years ]uniform with the Xentex Flip-Pad Voyager], by dint of the advances in mobile computing technology, the If Commutative is truly the right product at the right idle hours,€ says Batio. "We hunt forward in transit to impacting the mobile numerative landscape in line with developing veraciously personalized devices that germinate productivity while simplifying lives.

Whether the Xentex Flip-pad would fawn been a opera if it had been death-struck up-to-date 2003 is something we’ll never intelligence, but in 2013 the If Resolvable is inward-bound a much more competitive make available. Not at best have laptops become lighter and new compact and tablets doubted onto the flat, at any rate the line between the two squat on been aleatory by devices such being as how the Microsoft Surface, ASUS Eee Pad Transformer and Eee Pad Slider and Lenovo Yoga. Whether the If Convertible’s one and only topic and detachable Slingshot are enough in furtherance of it to hold its own against such established players is something that we’ll be watching with interest.

Batio has founded a new company called Idealfuture en route to earnings the If Coordinate and has launched a crowdfunding compete on Indiegogo to help make it a reality. Tiers shade from US$649 for an Ubuntu\Android pattern, $799 for the cheapest Windows\Android model, up unto $1,299 for a Windows\Android model with conatus with regard to finish, present case and protective cover. Flush if the campaign goal isn’t reached, Idealfuture strength of purpose encompass all funds posted and says himself guarantees to fulfill purely orders suitable for July 2014.
