Schedule Content With WordPress Plugins

Posted by Vasim Tamboli 3 Comments

Many people think that it's rather easy to be a blogger. Many people are wrong. I'm not going to delve into the problem of how hard it is to make it through all the steep competition and how many people actually try and fail. You need to be familiar with the grounds of the blogging community, you need to know what in the world you're doing and you need to produce top-notch content on a regular basis. But I'm not here to talk about how tough being a blogger is. I'm here to describe the wonder of scheduling content plugins and the way they make the whole process much easier. When you're a blogger, it's sometimes difficult to keep the content up. Some days you just don't feel well, or don't feel like writing at all. Other days you're just too busy to upload the content in your blog. Even if you're accepting guests posts, it can still be difficult. Worst of all, some days you have the time and energy to write a lot and come up with lots of content, but by the end you're too tired upload it. Whatever the case, scheduling your content is the perfect way to deal with the situation.

Before you start flaming, I know that WP has a native scheduling system, but that thing has been due to an update for ages. It's slow, clunky and has limited options. Instead of using it, you can always download some additional plugins and make your life a bit easier. And when I say a bit, I actually mean a lot.

Time Release

Let's face it, we all get lazy sometimes. It's in our nature, we can't help it. Especially when you're running a blog for a living, it's easy to get carried away and do anything for a few days. This is bad, though, because you can lose readers and ad revenue rather quickly. If you don't want that happening, there is an easy solution – write a few extra posts when you have some time in excess, then queue them up in Time Release and the plugin will publish them one by one, in order of queue if you haven't posted anything for a given number of days.

You have to save your posts as drafts when you're queuing them, though, because Time Release is quite particular about that. The “pill” icon for showing you which posts have been queued is an interesting choice. Overall, it's a great plugin but you really need to be careful.

Automatic Post Scheduler

Automatic Post Scheduler is even better because it basically creates an automated editorial plan of the times you will publish your posts. You see, instead of publishing a post right away and letting you post two posts in a row, it automatically schedules the second post's publishing. Then, if the interval is too small and the plugin schedules the publishing of the second post sometime in the future, if you really want to publish it right away, you can do so because you can easily override the plugin. It's a neat tool because of its level of automation. It's easy to use and saves you a lot of work. Generally takes a lot of the work you should do manually and automatizes it.
If you prefer having more direct control of your content, then Time Release would be a better option for you. If you're looking for a plugin to take as much work from your hands as possible, then Automatic Post Scheduler is just for you. It all depends on your preferences.

LG Flex: Features and Review

Posted by Vasim Tamboli

This is a phone that is literally flexible. Instead of being rigid and built with glass and hard plastic, it is made of up flexible components. This means that it may literally be bent and even compressed. It is possible to stand on this phone and not break it (be careful in testing that theory).

It is a very thin phone that is flexible but still rigid. The images of it bending over online are a bit of an exaggeration. It is very light and very thin and it built with plastic substrates that are flexible. In other words, it is curved and rigid, but flexible (it’s hard to describe without having a play with it yourself). You cannot bend the camera, battery or the processors, so look upon it as a phone that is simply more durable (or less fragile) than other phones. And, a phone that has a bit of a curve to it.

The battery is placed within the curving flex phone by the use of stack and folding technology. It reduces the stress that is put on the battery when some fool tries to bend it or tries to stomp on it. It makes it harder to destroy the battery with bending forces.

Features and Review


The LG Flex has the Android 4.2.2 operating system for its UX and UI. Its dimensions are 6.32 inches x 3.21 inches x 0.31 inches, which is 160.5 x 81.6 x 7.9 in mm. It weighs 6.24 oz which is 177g which is against the average of 4.5 oz which is 129 g.

Display

It has a 6 inch screen with a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels. The pixel density is 245 ppi which is pretty standard (not too good or too bad). It uses P-OLED and has a multi-touch feature to it.

The LG Flex Sensor

It comes with a proximity sensor and a light sensor. It has a battery that is 3500 mAh, which is a massive battery for a phone. It is far bigger than most which is going to guarantee you a nice long standby time and a very good talk time.

Battery

The battery is one of the most inflexible things on a phone. You can create bendy and squashable components for many types of phone innards. But, the battery is where they have really done well to make sure it does not split or burst when compressed or bent.

Sound

It has notifications such as haptic feedback and it has musical MP3 ringtones and well as polyphonic ringtones. It has a vibration mode, flight mode and silent mode as well as speakerphone. It comes with sensor such as a digital compass and an accelerometer. You can use voice recording, you and use voice dialing and voice commands on your phone too.

The Processor and RAM

It uses the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 MSM8974 processor. The processor is a quote core which means it has four processors. They run at a pretty good pace of 2260 MHz. It is a Krait 400 processor, and its graphics processor (GPU) is the Adreno 330.

The RAM on the phone is over two GB, which is very good. It is 2048 MB RAM, so along with the processor it is going to be tough to overstretch the systems on this phone. It is going to be able to handle most of the tasks that you throw at it. It also comes with a massive 32 GB of storage, which is very good for a phone, and is more than most people are ever going to need on their phone.

Camera

The LG Flex camera is a 13 mega pixel camera. This is very impressive and 13 mega pixels is currently the biggest mega pixel that phones have. Samsung were the first to install one on a popular mainstream phone, and it is now the highest mega pixel you are going to find on modern mainstream phones.

It is able to take videos and has a Flash LED for your images too. It has a front facing camera so that you can take photos of yourself or so that you can conduct video chats with other people.

Network and communications

It uses GSM: 900, 850, 1900, 1800 MHz and has LTE and HSPA compatibility, as well as EDGE and GPRS compatibility. It uses GPS and A-GPS and has navigation software. It can use Bluetooth 4.0 and has Wi-Fi: 802.11 a, b, g, n, ac. It also has USB 3.0 and microUSB. It also has a mass storage device and USB charging.

E-mail Scanning Tool Gets a New Name - LinkedIn Intro

Posted by Vasim Tamboli 2 Comments

It is a fact unanimously acknowledged that the growth of mobile e-mail is looming large. 5 years ago, hardly 4-5% of emails were read on mobile but now, it is rather surprising to note that more than half of all emails are read on a mobile device. So we have no other option but to set ourselves at par with the challenge, that of bringing the power of LinkedIn, the technology of Rapportive straightaway to the Apple Mail app on your iPhone. This is what is called LinkedIn Intro. Through LinkedIn Intro, you can see the LinkedIn profiles in the mail app on your iPhone. The business network LinkedIn always had plans to enhance and beautify the emails of the users on iPhones by adding some detailing through a proxy server. This has always been criticized as a security risk but the company has always replied back to such controversies calling them purely speculative.

LinkedIn recently outlined its plans of introducing the new ‘Intro’ service and said that this will help filter emails through a LinkedIn server before sending it to the user. Intro will also have the ability to identify and recognize LinkedIn users and embed their details into the emails through a different interactive box, which will appear at the top of every email. It is undoubtedly true that all those engineers who have invented Intro must be patting themselves but little do they know that this can have some ghastly implications. No, it’s not that the engineers have created Intro with some malicious intentions but security is not a part of the website’s DNA and this is what is troubling the experts. 



LinkedIn Intro - A middleman for emails

The LinkedIn servers require full access to their e-mail accounts and also require connecting directly with the email servers of the user in order to inject the Intro service into the top of the user’s email. The email server will then forward the forwarded mail to the iPhone by using a custom security profile that the users install on their iPhones. On the contrary, the critiques are of the opinion that they don’t see any security-conscious firm letting its employees handle LinkedIn to its emails as it just introduces yet another link within the privacy chain. This could be potentially exploited in the near future.

The LinkedIn security team has offered a reply to these contradictions by saying that these are totally incorrect and are nothing but speculations. They are of the opinion that the entire team was presented with this core design of LinkedIn Intro and they’ve made sure that they built the most secure implementation that was possible for them. According to them, they’ve explored different threat models and have kept challenging each other about the possible threats that they might come across.

The LinkedIn Intro is based on the technology acquired by LinkedIn after its purchase of email company Rapportive in the year 2012 and Rahul Vohra has described this service as all that one can need to add faces to names. Although there are discussions on the security risks, the LinkedIn Intro seems to be too useful on the surface.

Foray Into The Cloud Future and See What It Holds

Posted by Vasim Tamboli

If you’re to go by some of the latest reports that have come in regarding cloud computing, then you’ll realize that almost 49 percent of the business executives look at the whole cloud business as a rather strategic measure when it comes to their businesses. Forbes again says there’s another 40 percent that have actually gone on to ask their IT departments to conduct a thorough research. This research will be essentially directed towards how the cloud technology can be effectively used in the business domain. Well, it’s more than obvious that there has been an increased fervor in cloud computing and along with it the various ways in which businesses make use of the cloud.

Certain Noticeable Trends in The Cloud World

Take a look at the following noticeable trends when it comes to the world of cloud computing:-

1.    The cloud performance bit:

When it comes to meeting the demands as far as business computing is concerned, then cloud vendors these days are mostly focused on the platform performances as well as the cloud applications. When it comes to the world of cloud evolution, then the concern here has been to make the functional and available factors more viable and effective. The idea is for the vendors to actually compete on the basis of performance as far as attracting customers is concerned.

2.    The hybrid cloud factor:

Now that various companies are migrating their operations to the cloud domain, hence they’re more inclined towards choosing multiple cloud platforms instead of relying on any sole vendor.

3.    The high tech cloud bit:

This is again for those companies that are rather tech savvy but have a tight budget. Here there’s the scope of being able to create their own infrastructure in the cloud essentially. Actually the cloud companies have evolved to such a level that special hardware requirements are being met here. This gives companies the scope to have far more sensitive operations in place.


What The Future Holds For The Cloud

Here are certain things that the future holds for the cloud :-

1.    The art of balancing: Performance being one of the most pertinent factors when it comes to the cloud technology, companies in future might be given the option of choosing the performance they want for a specific operation.

2.    The Big Data Service: Fact that companies of almost all sizes are using large data sets for the purpose of making products and marketing decisions, there is a future prospect of analyzing this data on cloud itself.

3.    The payment for cloud: When it comes to cloud computing, then in conjunction with the performance operations, there’s a new model in the making wherein customers would be paying for the performance and space used.

Yes, the world of cloud computing has some noticeable trends to sit up to and more to consider in the near future. This technology is here to take business operations to the next level altogether. So if you haven’t adopted this yet, then go for it now!

5 Tips for PC Health:Organize Your Folders, Update Windows, Run Antivirus Software

Posted by Vasim Tamboli
Working on a slow, disorganized computer can be frustrating and it happens to the best of us. This article will give you some easy-to-follow guidelines on how to keep your computer on the right track using tools in Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP, and Microsoft Office 2010.

1. Organize Your Folders:

We all know how easy it is to dump files into the wrong folder when we're in a hurry. But one way to make sure you keep your files organized is to remove the clutter with a filing system that makes sense for the way you use your computer.

2.  Start Clean:


Begin by deciding which files you no longer need on your hard disk drive.

3. Think It Through:

Take the time to plan the best way to organize your files. How do you spend your time on the computer, and what do you create? Do you work with photos and image-editing software, surf the web, write short stories, research school projects, or play games? The folders you create in Documents (called “My Documents” in Windows XP) can be easily tailored to show you just the kind of data about your files that you need to track. For more tips about creating a well-organized filing system.

4. Use Subfolders:

After you have an idea of the kinds of items you produce and want to save, create folders and subfolders to store your files. Be sure to use logical, easy-to-understand names. For example, within Documents, you might create additional folders called Projects, HR Benefits, and Career. Then, within the Projects folder, you could create subfolders for each different project.

5.  Clean Your Files Periodically:

After you have set up your file system, inspect and clean it regularly. Routine maintenance tasks, such as deleting old or duplicate files and folders and making sure that important files are in the right folders, can save you a lot of time and frustration.
