Features of New Android M

Google announced new features of the upcoming Android M. These new features have made the operation of the Android M so simple.

These Android M features were announced at the annual I/O developer conference. In this article, we are going to discuss these features and the roles they play.

Features of New Android M o

Improvement on how apps communicate with each other: Currently, when a user clicks a link on Twitter, they are asked to choose between the Chrome browser and the official Twitter app, but this feature will enable the software to automatically verify which app is suitable to open the link. No announcements have been made so far about what happens if the users install third party Twitter apps and whether the new feature will give the users an opportunity to decide for themselves.

1. The Doze:

This feature has improved the standby battery time of the Android smart phones and the tablets. Burke said that it automatically shuts down the dormant apps to double the battery standby time

2. Adoption of the USB Type C connector:

This feature gives room for new standards for charging devices. The operating system provides the users with an option to choose whether they want to charge their devices or to charge another device using it. For example, the user can use an Android M tablet that has a USB Type C connector to charge a smart phone that runs on the same OS and vice versa.

3. Fingerprint scanner support:

This feature is also found in an iPhone with Touch ID and it enables the users to unlock phones and authenticate payments within apps by use of a fingerprint for security purposes and easements.

4. The Chrome Custom Tabs:

This feature enables the users to read online and it operates when apps have a dedicated Chrome Custom Tab button that when clicked, opens the Chrome browser within the app.

5. chrome Network Quality Estimator:

This feature detects weak internet connections and strips away contents like images for the page to load faster. The same thing happens on Apple’s Safari.

6. Android Pay:

It is located on the mobile payments front. The platform operates on NFC standard and enables the users to make payments within the apps or at the retail store. Even though Google Wallet was not mentioned, 700,000 retail chains within the US have already signed up to be part of the new platform. It enables the users to pay for things without opening an app in a simple and more secure way

7. Apps permissions system:

This feature enables users to control the behavior of apps and how they use the features of the device. For example, users can revoke or modify the permissions to apps and select individual permission. For example the user can give Whats-app access to the contact list instead of giving it to the microphone

8. A browser window customized just like the app:

This feature can pull the requisite data from the Chrome browser, allowing the users to log into apps and fill forms. It will be released to users in the third quarter.

 

The small Android M features are; improved text selection, remembering most frequent contacts and apps, sharing data, bringing back data and volume stream control.

The above discussed Android M features will increase the experience of the users and the Android M will be released to the users in the third quarter 2015.

 

How does Computer Connect to Internet

Every computer that is connected to the Internet is part of a network, even the one in your home. When you connect to your ISP (Internet service provider), you become part of their network. The ISP may then connect to a larger network and become part of their network.
The Internet is simply a network of networks. Most large communications companies have their own dedicated backbones connecting various regions. In each region, the company has a Point of Presence (POP).

The POP is a place for local users to access the company’s network, often through a local phone number or dedicated line. The amazing thing here is that there is no overall controlling network. Instead, there are several high-level networks connecting to each other through Network Access Points or NAPs.

Example: Imagine that Company A is a large ISP. In each major city, Company A has a POP.The POP in each city is a rack full of modems that the ISP’s customers dial into. Company A use fiber optic (a cable) to communicate.

Imagine that Company B is a corporate ISP. Company B builds large buildings in major cities and corporations locate their Internet server machines in these buildings. Company B is such a large company that it runs its own fiber optic lines between its buildings so that they are all interconnected. In this arrangement, all of Company A’s customers can talk to each other, and all of Company B’s customers can talk to each other, but there is no way for Company A’s customers and Company B’s customers to intercommunicate.

The Function of an Internet Router (Message passing) Therefore, Company A and Company B both agree to connect to NAPs in various cities, and traffic between the two companies flows between the networks at the NAPs.

In the real Internet, dozens of large Internet providers interconnect at NAPs in various cities, and trillions of bytes of data flow between the individual networks at these points. The Internet is a collection of huge corporate networks that agree to all intercommunicate with each other at the NAPs. In this way, every computer on the Internet connects to every other.

Gmail Officially Adds Undo Send, Turn It On Right Now

Do you ever wish that there was an undo button for email? Gmail has offered this experimental feature for some time now. Six years, in fact. But today it’s officially a regular part of Gmail.

No more accidentally sending that killer turkey burger recipe to your boss when it was intended for your aunt. How embarrassing! Was your strongly worded email to the neighborhood association about Mr. Vanlandingham’s obnoxious mailbox colors a bit too strongly worded? Just click undo and delete all those what the fudges and holy shoots. Problem solved!

So how do you enable Gmail’s undo feature? Go to the little cog icon in the upper righthand corner and select “Settings.” About a third of the way down the page you’ll see the “Undo Send” section. You can choose between 5, 10, 20 and 30 second windows of unsendability. Make sure you hit “Save Changes” at the bottom and you’re all set.

Then, the next time you hit send on an email that you probably shouldn’t have, you’ve got precisely that many seconds to change your mind and hit the undo button at the top of the page. Decide after 31 seconds that maybe you shouldn’t call your sister’s new boyfriend a dull, shit-breathing knobhead for spilling his entire Zima over your head at last weekend’s barbecue? Well, you’re out of luck in that case, friend. Technology can’t solve all your problems.

Reasons Why WordPress Websites are Better

If you’re still new to the world of blogging and websites, you may have heard of WordPress and might be wondering what WordPress is. WordPress is publishing platform used for building websites and blogs. It powers millions of websites worldwide, and many big brands use WordPress: Simmyideas Tech Hub uses WordPress!!!

My observation as been soo clear that wordpress based website are far better than the always prefered tranditional webiste. Today, WordPress is used by more than 74 million sites that publish new posts every second. No matter the size of the blog that is using WordPress. This widely used CMS has become a favorite among businesses because of how powerful of a tool it is. Just how powerful is WordPress exactly

About 3 years ago I started messing around with WordPress and have been deploying WordPress based sites ever since — because they are simply better, here’s why:

  1. Save Money – No longer do you need to send the most basic text changes to your designer or even have your designer add new pages for you. Make the edits yourself whenever you want and save the money you would’ve paid your designer for more important things by adding new pages on your own. Times are tight and managing your own content for your Web site is a great way to contribute to saving costs.
  2. Greater Accessibility – Make changes or add content from any computer in the world with Internet access and a browser without the need for additional software or fixing firewall settings.
  3. Speed of Communication – Since you don’t have to wait a few days for your designer to make those basic changes, the content on your Web site and be altered immediately by you, thereby giving your Web site visitors the most timely and current details possible.
  4. Consistency – No matter how many pages you add in page template format makes visitors less confused
  5. Better Time Management – Add content and then schedule those posts to publish on your site on whatever day and time you want. You could write an entire 12-week e-course, for example, break it up into 12 pieces and have each automatically post to the site at the same day and time each week for 12 weeks.
  6. Ease of Membership Site Rollout – With the addition of a few plugins, a WordPress blog can evolve into a full service membership site with as many levels as you would like.
  7. Social Networking Friendly – Automatically integrate your blog posts with social media like Twitter, facebook, Linkedin instead of having to go to each one, login, and make a post that you’ve just added something new to your website.
  8. Engage with Current Media – Easily add audio and video to posts and pages.
  9. Creative Welcoming – Integrate any design within an hour or two in comparison to other CMS (Content Management System) tools that all look alike because of their stringent design constraints.
  10. Ultimate in SEO Friendliness – The construction of WordPress blog code is consistent and streamlined without excessive HTML code that Google finds very inviting for indexing. Plus, with the right setup, you’re able to customize every page or post you make to give you the highest possible probability of getting your pages in high search results positions.
  11. Inspiring – Participating by adding posts and pages and managing your own content becomes “fun.” When you see the results from your OWN efforts instead of farming out everything, you become fueled even more to add more content.
  12. Search Engine Magnetism – As a result of your inspiration to post content more often, your frequency of contribution will attract Google robots and other search engines like magnets. The robots will search your entire site every day looking for new content and new pages and changes they can index. New pages get indexed in hours or even MINUTES when you commit to adding new content over time. Many of our HereNextYear posts and WebsiteWaves.com pages have been published and displayed on Google’s organic search in under 30 minutes! Try that with a traditional Web site!
  13. Growth potential – No need to update navigation when you add pages; links to new pages will be added automatically based on what “category” or categories you assign your posts and pages to. This all happens in the admin area instead of manually editing javascript menus and complex PHP include files.
  14. Insanely Fast Learning Curve – Learning to edit content, post new pages, add photos and images is as easy (maybe even easier) than using MS Word. Figuring out these simple procedures on your own would only take a novice a few hours. With initial one-on-one training by phone from an expert WordPress trainer like we offer at HereNextYear, all of these functions can be performed by YOU in under an hour…even if you have no design or programming experience. There are two and three FULL-day classes just to learn the BASICS of Dreamweaver or FrontPage. I know…I used to teach them! WordPress blog software is by far, the easiest tool to learn how to maintain content on your Web site.
  15. Improved Security – One of the subjects “against” WordPress or other blog software that use plugins (plugins are small add-on programs to enhance the capability of the blog software) is that hackers can break in to your Web site. But, the exact opposite is in fact true: If you have the right people involved in the setup of your WordPress installation, your blog site can be hacker-proofed even more securely than a traditional Web site. How can that be true? Because there is an actual process to “hardening” a WordPress installation. But, you just don’t hear designers or developers hacker-proofing traditional Web sites. See the difference?
  16. Inspires Repeat Visitors – The fact that you are inspired to add new content frequently will also encourage and increase your repeat visitor numbers. When people like what you contribute to the Web, they want to know when you add more. That’s where RSS feeds (Real Simple Syndication) come into play along with automated notices by email that new posts have been made. These announcements trigger former visitors to come back to read the rest of the article, or in the case of RSS, visitors can subscribe to receive the entire post through their RSS reader or mobile device. This is not just the “future” of how communication will evolve in a few years, but this is NOW, TODAY. If you are not experienced with how RSS works, having a blog site will introduce you to its importance for sure.
  17. Two-Way Communication with Visitors – Through the use of blog comments, you are no longer restricted to one-way “outbound” communication with visitors like you would be with a traditional Web site. Sure, you can always have a “contact us” page on your traditional Web site, but blog comments allow for anonymous two-way discussion between you and your readers. And, every time someone makes a comment to one of your posts, the inclusion of their content full of keyword phrases helps you to build better search positioning. It’s like getting free SEO help from the general public!
  18. Increase Your Perceived Industry Authority – Making frequent posts and sharing your opinion on what’s happening in your industry offers so much more potential for establishing rapport with your audience than a traditional Web site could offer. Why such a difference? Because traditional Web sites just take too darn long to format. Even if you open Dreamweaver and copy an existing page to create a new one, you still have to format all that content, upload it to the right directory, assign page permissions, add the page manually to navigation….UGGG! A WordPress blog will allow you to add new pages in as little as five seconds! Period! And, that page can be set to appear in navigation on every other page on on your entire Web site in the click of a button. You just can’t afford to spend that much time to make that many additions of content pages in such a short amount of time with a traditional Web site. And, when you’re “reporting” on industry happenings, and giving your opinions, speed is of the essence. That’s the difference.
  19. More Brand Awareness – Since the common approach with a blog site is to build out the site into an industry-specific authority resource with hundreds or even thousands of pages of content, the number of opportunities for the general public to see your brand identity is multiplied exponentially over and above the traditional 10 to 30 page Web site.
  20. Immediate Identification of Hot Topics Among Your Audience – If you make 10 posts and get one or two…or even no comments at all, and then all of a sudden you post a topic that brings 20 comments, you learn immediately of an interest. This is a highly valuable opportunity that you normally don’t see with a traditional Web site, unless you pay for a bunch of custom programming to create some forms and surveys. The utility to allow blog comments is included with every Blog installation automatically with no custom programming required.
  21. Better Anchor for Original Articles – When you publish articles to directories and blog networks, you first want to post it to your blog site. Why is a blog site “better” for this than a traditional Web site? Because of the automatic archiving feature within every blog setup.
  22. Automated Syndication – Blog posts can be automatically converted to RSS feeds and syndicated to blog directories and other peoples’ websites.
  23. 24-Hour Listing in Bing/MSN – Adding the RSS feed to Bing/MSN is the fastest way to have your site indexed and it is common for even new sites to appear in Bing/MSN within 24 hours using this method.
  24. One-Step Posting – It might sound like I’m repeating myself with “ease of use” or “ease of learning” already listed as a benefit, but this one is different. How many ways are there to add content to a Web site where you truly only click a single button to make the content appear live online? Only one that I’ve found and it’s through blog software. There are no 10, 5 or even 3-step processes to publish content live. It’s one single step.
  25. You Control the Discussions – With traditional Web sites, the “old school” way of communicating with visitors was to add a forum or chat room. The problem with those was the need for maintaining the posts from spammers and removing discussions and predatory accounts that could threaten the integrity of your business. Blog sites changed all of that. You begin the topic of discussion. Your visitors make comments to the discussion you started. But, the comments people make are approved by you before anyone ever sees them on your Web site. It’s the best of all worlds without the worry of defaming your business with unacceptable posts.
  26. Re-Ignite Your Ideas – By having the ability to add content to your Web site in a way that is easy, fast, and requires no technical skill, you will be amazed how ideas for “what to add” will no longer be a problem. In fact, you’ll be more worried about what to write about….first! Create content about industry happenings, product reviews, or educational steps. The limits are truly endless. You’ll never run out of things to add to your blog.
  27. Increased Functionality with Lower Cost – Thousands of pre-written programs called plugins can increase the functionality of your out-of-the-box blog software. Traditional websites require everything to be programmed. Even if you find an available PHP or ASP script to work with a traditional website, there is usually significant integration work and customizing required, whereas WordPress plugins are usually a 3-click install process.
  28. Multi-User Capable – WordPress offers multi-user capability so that larger companies with marketing departments, for example, can offer editing power exclusivity or even read-only mode to others.
  29. Free Upgrades – Unlike traditional Web site software like Dreamweaver, PhotoShop or Flash, upgrades to WordPress blog software is free.
  30. Universal Platform – With the economy the way it is, designers and Internet marketing service providers are closing their doors and disappearing even more quickly than when I got started in this business in 1996. You’ve got to be careful these days. With traditional Web sites, very rarely will a new service provider agree to pick up where the old designer or developer left off. The result is that the new provider will want to charge you for starting from scratch. Conversely, almost anyone with basic PHP and MySQL experience can jump into your WordPress blog site project in a moments notice if something was to happen to the helper(s) that got your blog site setup for you in the first place.
  31. Safety – Add images and media by uploading to server from within your secret admin area instead of through traditional ftp and risking deleting important files or uploading to the wrong directories
  32. Freshness – Easily change your site layout and appearance by swapping themes. Great for temporary changes for holidays or seasons.
  33. Reduced Loss of Work – Your work is automatically saved as you type even if you haven’t published your blog posts live to the web yet.
  34. Mobile Readiness – No need to produce a second Web site just for mobile users. WordPress automatically recognizes if a person is viewing the site through a Web browser or mobile device and configures the content to be viewed appropriately on either.

Did I miss any benefits of WordPress blog sites over traditional sites? Let me know and please contribute to this important post. Does WordPress have any problems or limitations? Absolutely — it is an evolving application — but it is much better and cheaper than trying to get someone to build a content-based website from scratch for you. Setting up a website in a couple of days should not be a headache

Tech Q&A: What is switch?

In a telecommunications network, a switch is a device that channels incoming data from any of multiple input ports to the specific output port that will take the data toward its intended destination.

Check Out more Definitions and Functions of a Switch

  • With a computer keyboard, a switch is what is beneath each key that gives the key a response when pressed. For example, a scissor-switch is a type of switch used with laptop computers. In the picture, is an example of a scissor-switch and how the key is compressed when pressed
  • On a network, a switch is a hardware device that filters and forwards network packets, but often not capable of much more. The first network device that was added to the Internet was a switch called the IMP, which helped send the first message on October 29, 1969. A network switch is more advanced than a hub but not as advanced as a router. The picture shows an example of a NETGEAR5 port switch.
  •  A switch is a piece of a physical circuitry component that governs the signal flow. Having a switch or toggle switch allows a connection to be opened or closed. When opened the switch allows a signal or power to flow through the connection. When closed the switch stops the flow and breaks the circuit connection.
  •  A switch is also a button or lever that can be switched to turn a device on or off.
  • When referring to another command, a command switch is an available option that can be used with the command. For example, the command: “fdisk” can be used with the /MBR switch, using “FDISK /MBR” would allow the user to recreate the master boot record and not just run the fdisk program.
  • When referring to the switches command, this command is loaded through config.sys and allows you to add and remove various functions of MS-DOS.
  •  Switches is also a config.sys command that allows the user to add and remove features of early versions of MS-DOS and Windows.

How to Choose the Right (SD) Memory Card

SD cards are the most common form of removable data storage for portable devices that we have to date. However, many people have had situations where they put the card in their device, and it does not read. Other times, it fails to record. Often, it always ends with the person saying, “Well, I thought I had enough storage!”

But that’s just it – SD cards aren’t all about storage! In fact, there are several other factors to consider, and when purchasing your cards, you should make yourself aware of them. That said, SD cards aren’t all created equal, and it’s important to be educated as to what separates each one from the rest.

Most digital devices we have today have a special slot for memory cards, which can be useful when you want to add storage capacity to the device. Your smartphones, music players, digital cameras, laptops, and tablets are mostly equipped with memory card slots so you can buy whatever memory cards for your needs. However, you need to remember that memory cards come in different sizes, speed, and also storage capacities. After all, different devices will require different types of memory cards, so before you march to the nearest store to buy the memory cards that you want – and waste money for the stuffs you don’t actually need – know your facts straight about different kinds of memory cards.

As a given, all types of data are different, and although I can’t tell you exactly what to buy since I don’t know your device, I can supply you with the proper information to make that decision on your own.

The Capacity

Just like other devices, memory cards have different storage capacity. The standard SDSC has 1 to 2 GB of capacity, with the biggest one is 4 GB, but 4 GB isn’t the standard capacity. the later SDHC has 2 to 32 GB of capacity while the recent SDXC has 32 GB to 2 TB in capacity. you also need to choose the right devices that support SDXC or SDHC cards. Most general devices support SDHC while devices that support SDXC is less common because it is basically pretty new. At this point, the vast majority of devices should support SDHC. In fact, the SD cards you have are probably SDHC cards. SDXC is newer and less common.

The Size

Memory cards also come in different sizes, with microSD card as the smallest, miniSD as the medium one, and the standard one which is pretty big and the biggest from the three. Yes, the standard memory card is quite small actually, but it is still the biggest when compared to the other two. With cut-corner design, these standard cards are often used for most digital cameras.

MiniSD cards have the dimension of 20 x 21.5 x 1.4 mm with total weight 0.8 grams so it is pretty small. Originally, this kind of card was designed for mobile phones, but today mobile phones are using even smaller memory cards, which is the microSD card. As the smallest cards among the three, it weighs 0.25 grams with a total dimension of 11 x 15 x 1 mm. aside being used in modern smartphones, these cards are also used in other gadgets, such as tablets.

Each SD cards has their own matching slots. Naturally, you can’t plug in a microSD into a medium or a standard one into a microSD. However, it is possible now to use the smaller card for bigger slots. For instance, you can use microSD for the medium or standard slot, as long as you have the adapter.

The Speed

On the contrary to what people think, different memory cards have a different speed. The reason why this is designed is because there are different work and task that require a quick response, while some are quite standard. If you are a professional photographer often dealing with snapping pictures in fast successions or you have to make fast high-resolution video recording, you will need a memory card with high speed. Using DLSR camera with high-res RAW format require a memory card that can match the high speed, so your camera can save all the results safely immediately. However, if you are casual camera user – with standard smartphone camera and you don’t need snapping fast images with high-quality result, then you only need the standard memory card – no need to bother buying the high speed one.

The speed classes are basically a recent standard defined by SD Association. There is a certain guideline provided so users like you can make use of it. Speed classes are divided into four classifications: 2, 4, 8, and 10 with class 2 being the slowest and class 10 being the fastest (and also perfect for HD quality photo images and video recording). Class 4 and 6 are the standards, and they are pretty good to deal with standard high-quality results.

Aside from the general four classes, there are also two additional UHS (Ultra High Speed) classes. They are costlier and definitely designed for advanced and professional usage. Naturally, these UHS cards can only be accessed by devices that are compatible. General smartphones, digital cameras, or tablets generally use class 4 or 6, while the cheapest smartphones or digital cameras may use the class 2. High-end digital cameras are generally able to support the class10. Finding the logo on the card isn’t difficult at all, as the class speed is generally embedded in it. if you buy the cards from online stores, there is also information about the speed class. If you can’t find any symbol for the speed class, you probably have the so called 0 card, which was produced before the rating system for the speed class was introduced. As you can guess, 0 class is even slower than the class2.

Is Your Computer Compatible with Windows 10 & Can You Upgrade?

It’s looking more and more likely that Microsoft will achieve its announced aim of shipping Windows 10 sometime around the end of July or thereabouts. The May 20 announcement of build 10122 seems to indicate that most of the important feature changes are in. So we may have reached the point where it is time to start considering if you are going to take advantage of the free upgrade to Windows 10 that will be available to many people. A lot of the people who are eligible for an upgrade probably have older machines so it is worth looking at the system requirements for running Windows 10.

If you have a system already running Windows 8.1, you are probably good to go. However, because of the space needed for certain hidden partitions and for backup installation files, make sure that you have ample spare free disk space. Before Windows 10 is installed, the installer will run a check of system requirements.

Those with older systems can take a look at the graphic below, which shows the general requirements for desktop systems. It is taken from a Microsoft presentation at the recent WinHEC show. These requirements are for new PCs and intended for OEMs but they are indicative.

win10-system-requirements

Personally, I find the memory and storage requirements given in the graphic to be unrealistically low. I think you’d be a lot better off doubling the amount of RAM listed. I also think a minimum system volume of ~60 GB is a good idea. Most PC users will want even more space for storing files but that can be on a separate disk volume. Note that the UEFI requirement is only for new PCs. Old BIOS systems are still supposed to be able to run Windows 10. Not stated in the slide but you also need a CPU that supports PAE, NX, and SSE2. Almost any PC processor of the last few years will have this support but, if need be, you can check with the Sysinternals command-line utility Coreinfo.
