How To Trace Your Lost Or Stolen Smartphone

Trace your stolen smartphone
Both Android and iOS feature very useful tools that allow you to quickly locate your smartphone if it gets lost or stolen.Even if you are unable to recover the phone, you can still remotely lock it and wipe all your data.
The first step is to make sure that your device can be located.
In Android, go into Google Settings, then Security, and activate the option "Remotely locate this device", if it is not already turned on. Then you only have to connect to with any Internet browser, whether on a computer or mobile device, to access real-time information on the location of your smartphone.
Other options allow you to have the phone ring to alert you of its location, or remotely lock it and erase all your information.
Some brands offer their own solutions, like Samsung with its "Find my mobile" function, which allows you to synchronise your smartphone with your Samsung account, and activate remote control and tracking.
In iOS, open "Settings", then iCloud, and activate "Find my iPhone". Then make sure that “Location Services” is turned on in your “Privacy” settings. Once this is done, in the event that your iPhone is lost or stolen, you can connect to and sign in to your Apple account to see exactly where your phone is.
You can also do this using the "Find My iPhone" app using any other iOS device, once you have signed in with your Apple ID. You can then remotely lock your phone, have it play a sound, display a message, or erase all the data on it.
It goes without saying that these solutions will only work if your smartphone is turned on and connected (via a cellphone network or wifi). They also work for any other device that is connected to an Apple or Google account.

How Touch Screen Works And What Are Its Types? (infographics)

touch screen
An infographic shows the working of a touchscreen. The beautiful graphic illustration also describes the types of touch screens currently used in most of the devices like smartphones, tablets, televisions, etc.
Touchscreen is a user input device implemented in various electronic devices ranging from smartphones, tablets, televisions, computers to digital control screens installed car dashboards. This type of input device requires physical contact between its touch sensitive part and the hand of the user, more precisely, the fingers. However, touchscreen even works if you try to use it with your foot or nose. They just require the contact of a human body part.
Touch screens are of two types:
Resistive – Touch is detected by pressure applied to the screen by a finger or stylus.
Capacitive – Touch is detected by the charge present in our finger. A special type of stylus is required for such screens.
Other types of touch screens also exist but the capacitive and resistive are the most popular type. Even the resistive type touch screens are becoming obsolete with time and they are inferior to the capacitive type.
Here’s an awesome infographic by How Stuff Works which will take you into the world touch screens:

Fitbit tried in convincing investors that it is still alive

Fitbit smartwatch
Fitbit’s shares are not much more than 10% of the highs it reached of $47.60 in July 2015, the month following its public debut. On Wednesday, Fitbit closed $5.07, just barely a “unicorn” at $1.16 billion in market value.
But the stock saw a rare boost after the company reported quarterly earnings, sending shares up over 4% in initial after hours trading.


Google's Project Fi Cell Phone Service Is Now Available Without an Invite

The company reported $353.3 million in revenue from selling 3.4 million devices, above the $341.6 million revenue that analysts expected. But this is still a sharp drop from the $586.5 million in revenue we saw in the same period last year. Adjusted losses of 8 cents were much smaller than the negative 15 cents Wall Street was forecasting, but last year Fitbit posted a profit at 12 cents.

When major players like Apple entered the space, Fitbit tried to send the message that it was more than just a fitness tracker, but a smartwatch as well. Fitbit released competitive products, but Wall Street wasn’t convinced that it was good enough.

Check out:

Fitbit CEO James Park insists that its next smartwatch will be the big one. “Our smartwatch, which we believe will deliver the best health and fitness experience in the category, is on track for delivery ahead of the holiday season and will drive a strong second half of the year,” he said in a statement.
No one knows for sure how Apple Watch sales are going since the company hides it in the “other revenue” category, but CEO Tim Cook announced on Tuesday that sales are up 50% from last year.
But one competitor that has not fared well is Jawbone. Originally seen as Fitbit’s biggest foe, the company is now getting liquidated. 
Fitbit is still alive, but the company has had a difficult year with layoffs and production problems.   The stock is down 63% since the same time last year.

Tesla has completed its first ever Solar Roof product installations

Tesla completed first ever Solar Roof product installations
Tesla has already completed the first installations of its Solar Roof products, which use integrated solar panels to gather energy. The solar tiles were first introduced last year, and are designed to look essentially indistinguishable from traditional roofing materials so that they present an aesthetically attractive option to consumers who might shy away from traditional panel designs.
The first installations have been made on Tesla employee homes, which mirrors the way it’s distributing the very first Tesla Model 3 automobiles. This is partly a reward for their contribution to the immense effort represented by bringing these things to market, but it’s also likely a strategic decision that allows Tesla to test and monitor its new products early on in their production life.
“I have it on my house, [Tesla co-founder] JB [Straubel] has it on his house,” Elon Musk said on the call. He specified that the first installations were already generating energy as well as being installed.
Tesla started pre-orders for Solar Roof installations during Q2, and is offering a warranty for the lifetime of the house on which they’re installed, “or infinity, whichever comes first.”

Google's Project Fi Cell Phone Service Is Now Available Without an Invite

Google's Project Fi Cell Phone Service
Google’s cell phone service, Project Fi, is now available without an invitation. Anyone with a Nexus 6P, 5X, or 6 can sign up for a plan today.

Also read: 

Using Google For Hacking.

All you need to do to sign up for Project Fi is head to the sign up page and log in with your Google account. From there, you’re on your way to getting cell phone service started. The point of Project Fi is to keep the pricing plan simple. For $20/month you get unlimited talk and text. Then, you pay $10/month per GB of data and any unused data is credited back to your account. As far as coverage is concerned, Project Fi piggybacks off of T-Mobile and Sprint, so anywhere you can get coverage with those services, you’ll get with Project Fi. Project Fi only works with Google’s current line of Nexus phones, but as far as off-contract phone plans go, while it’s not the cheapest, the coverage is pretty strong.

Subscribe to Facebook Posts to Get Notifications Without Commenting

Get Notifications Without Commenting
I really like using groups on Facebook. I’m in a ton of different writing groups where writers swap advice, as well as a few beer groups where people swap, well, beer. One thing that has become painfully obvious across both groups: a lot of people don’t fully understand how Facebook works. There are a lot of odd offenses that pop up, but the one that tends to bother me the most is when people respond to posts with just the word “Following.”

Also Read:

How to Turn Off Auto-Playing Sound for Videos On Facebook

People write “Following” as a comment on posts presumably because they want to keep up with them. This happens most often on posts where someone has asked a question that those people would also like the answer to. Once you comment, you’re default subscribed to the thread, so you’ll get a notification each time someone comments.
It seems like an ok solution, but the thing is, you also get a notification each time some other person decides to write “Following.” on the post as does every other person that’s commented. It’s annoying, and Facebook actually has a feature that lets you do this without notification spamming everyone in the conversation.
If you see a post, be it on a friend’s wall or in a group, you’d like to keep track of you can subscribe to get notifications by literally just turning on notifications for the post. Here’s how to do it:
  1. Go to the post in question, and then click the tiny arrow at the top right of it.
  2. Select “Turn on notifications for this post” from the drop-down menu
Yo might like:

That’s it. When you do that you’ll get a notification whenever anyone comments on the post.
 Get Notifications Without Commenting
The feature also works great in the reverse. I tend to run into issues whenever I comment on someone’s new baby picture or engagement announcement. When you comment, you get everyone else’s “Congrats!” message sent your way as well. You can stop it by going to that same drop down menu and selecting “Turn off notifications for this post.” Your friend still gets your congratulatory message, but you don’t have to read the hundreds of others that pour in after yours.

3 Terrible Myths About Achieving Musical Greatness (And Why They Are False)

Achieving musical greatness is almost unattainable when you believe in common (false) myths followed by other musicians. Staying away from these three myths makes it much easier to become a great musician:

Myth #1. Musical Greatness = Being Original
Musical greatness comes down to this: being able to express exactly what you want with little effort. What you express might be original or might not be original. Classically trained pianists achieve greatness through technique and musical ability despite only playing the music of other composers. It is also possible to be original without expressing yourself.
The thing that matters the most is that you have something to express and are ready to find out how to clearly express it in music.

Myth #2. You Must Be Talented To Become A Great Musician
False: musical greatness is simply a byproduct of mastering musical skills and integrating them together. People who have natural talent were not born talented. They figured out on their own how to master the right skills to become good musicians.
It is 100% possible to become a great musician regardless of how much talent you began with. Tons of great musicians started their careers with absolutely no skills or talent. Anyone can become great and learn the right musical skills by working with an experienced teacher.

Myth #3. To Be Musically Great You Must Play Many Styles Well
You can express yourself very well in one style (that you love). Most of the greatest musicians in the world were specialists in a single style (or closely related styles). For example, two great musicians Steve Vai and Yngwie Malmsteen never strayed too far from their respective genres. Musical greatness is about acquiring skills needed to express the sounds you hear in your head and mastering them.
Rather than trying to become great in many genres, stay with the genre you are most passionate about. Then work with a teacher who understands how to teach you things that help you become great in any genre. For instance, ear training, music theoryScience Articles, music writing and live performing.
When you stay away from these 3 myths you get rid of the obstacles in the way of your musical greatness.

How to share multiple photos in one Instagram post

The drudgery of uploading one photo at a time to Instagram has ended! Now you can add up to 10 photos and videos at once.
Don't worry about overwhelming your followers with a slew of photos, though. It's kind of like a Story. A bulk upload is consolidated into one post. The first image is displayed in your feed and blue dots at the bottom of the photo lets your followers know that they can swipe to see more images.
Adding multiple images and videos is super easy:
  1. 1. From the home screen, hit the + icon at the bottom of the screen.
  2. 2. Tap the first image you want to add.
  3. 3. Tap the Select multiple icon on the bottom right of the image.
  4. 4. Tap on the additional images you want to add and tap an image again to         deselect it. If you don't like the order of your images, tap and hold on the         image you want to move, then drag it to the right spot.
  5. 5. Tap Next at the top of the screen as usual to edit your photos. You have the     option of editing each photo individually, or adding the same filter to all your     images at once. If you want the same filter on all the images, just tap on           your chosen filter without selecting a photo. If you want to edit photos               individually, just tap on one, edit and tap Done. Rinse and repeat.
  6. 6. When you're done editing, tap Next and add a caption. Unfortunately, all of     your photos will just have one caption.
  7. 7. Tap Share when you're done.
On your profile grid, your followers will see an icon in the upper right side of a photo to let them know it is a post with multiple images. They just need to tap and swipe on the photo to see more.

How to Securely Dispose of an SSD

Solid State Drives (SSD) work a little differently than hard drive and no amount of drilling holes, degaussing, or zeroing out will actually properly secure the SSD. If you need to get rid of an SSD, you have a couple options, encrypt or shred. Here’s what you need to know.

If you’re curious about the technical reasons why traditional formatting or hard drive destruction isn’t the best way to securely erase data on SSDs, Backblaze has a great guide that details why old hard drive methods don’t work. The short version is that there is no standard method for securely deleting data from an SSD, and that means there’s no universally accepted secure format option for SSDs. Some manufacturers make their own software for formatting their own hard drives, but it’s tough to independently verify any of them.
Instead, Backblaze (and others) suggest two approaches, encrypt the SSD and throw away the key, or shred it. Shredding an SSD requires a special machine that most of us don’t have access to, so let’s just focus on the encryption method. This is good enough for most of us who aren’t working on top secret projects because without the encryption key, an encrypted SSD is basically just a drive full of random ones and zeroes.
If you’re getting rid of an SSD for whatever reason, the process is simple, encrypt it first, format it, and if you want to be super careful, encrypt it again.
This guide assumes you want to remove, destroy, and never again access data on your computer, so make sure everything is backed up because you will not get access to it again.

How to Encrypt an SSD on Windows

Windows has built-in encryption software called Bitlocker that’s very easy to set up, but it’s limited to Pro users. So, as a free and accessible option, we like VeraCrypt just as well.
  1. Download and install VeraCrypt.
  2. Launch VeraCrypt and select System > Encrypt System Partition/Drive.
  3. Choose Normal encryption when prompted then click Next.
  4. Select “Encrypt the whole drive.”
  5. Assuming you only have one operating system installed, select Single-boot and click next.
  6. For Encryption Options, you can leave this on the default setting: AES for encryption algorithm and SHA-256 for Hash Algorithm.
  7. Create a password. You will need to enter this one more time before the process is over, so write it down for now.
  8. Follow the on-screen instructions to move your mouse around, and click Next when it’s all done.
  9. When asked to create a Rescue Disk, click Next. This is a required recovery option that assumes you want to continue using this SSD.
  10. Select “1-pass” for the Wipe Mode and click Next.
  11. Finally, click Test to test everything out. Once your computer reboots, you’ll be asked for your password. Enter that, then follow the on-screen instructions to complete the encryption process.
Once your done, you can toss out the encryption keys, making it nearly impossible for anyone to recover data from the SSD if they find.

How to Encrypt an SSD on Mac

You can easily encrypt your SSD on a Mac using the built-in encryption tool, FileVault:
  1. Open System Preferences and head to Security & Privacy > FileVault.
  2. Click the lock icon and enter your password.
  3. Click, “Turn on FileVault.”
  4. When prompted, choose the “Create a recovery key and do not use my iCloud Account” then press Continue. Normally, you’d make a special note of this recovery key so you can access it later. Since you’re destroying the SSD, it’s not an issue.
  5. Restart your computer when prompted.
Your Mac’s SSD is now encrypted.
You can now format the drive. If you want to be extra careful, after you format it, encrypt it again. This ensures the first encryption key is overwritten completely. Doing so won’t make a huge difference in the likelihood of someone accessing it, but it’s a little better for peace of mind.

11 Ways to Make Money While You Sleep

There is a proven sequence of steps you can follow to guarantee your success when you're starting a small business online, which are by doing the following:
  1. Find a need and fill it.
  2. Write copy that sells.
  3. Design and build an easy-to-use website.
  4. Use search engines to drive traffic to your site.
  5. Establish an expert reputation for yourself.
  6. Follow up with your customers and subscribers with email.
  7. Increase your income through back-end sales and upselling.
Anyone, from newbie to seasoned online entrepreneur, can benefit from this process in learning how to start a business online.

Step 1: Find a need and fill it.

Most people who are just starting out make the mistake of looking for a product first, and a market second.
To boost your chances of success, start with a market. The trick is to find a group of people who are searching for a solution to a problem, but not finding many results. The internet makes this kind of market research easy:
  • Visit online forums to see what questions people ask and what problems they're trying to solve.
  • Do keyword research to find keywords that a lot of people are searching, but for which not many sites are competing.
  • Check out your potential competitors by visiting their sites and taking note of what they're doing to fill the demand. Then you can use what you've learned and create a product for a market that already exists--and do it better than the competition.

Step 2: Write copy that sells.

There's a proven sales copy formula that takes visitors through the selling process from the moment they arrive to the moment they make a purchase:
  1. Arouse interest with a compelling headline.
  2. Describe the problem your product solves.
  3. Establish your credibility as a solver of this problem.
  4. Add testimonials from people who have used your product.
  5. Talk about the product and how it benefits the user.
  6. Make an offer.
  7. Make a strong guarantee.
  8. Create urgency.
  9. Ask for the sale.
Throughout your copy, you need to focus on how your product or service is uniquely able solve people's problems or make their lives better. Think like a customer and ask "What's in it for me?"

Step 3: Design and build your website.

Once you've got your market and product, and you've nailed down your selling process, now you're ready for your small-business web design. Remember to keep it simple. You have fewer than five seconds to grab someone's attention--otherwise they're gone, never to be seen again. Some important tips to keep in mind:
  • Choose one or two plain fonts on a white background.
  • Make your navigation clear and simple, and the same on every page.
  • Only use graphics, audio or video if they enhance your message.
  • Include an opt-in offer so you can collect e-mail addresses.
  • Make it easy to buy--no more than two clicks between potential customer and checkout.
  • Your website is your online storefront, so make it customer-friendly.

Step 4: Use search engines to drive targeted buyers to your site.

Pay-per-click advertising is the easiest way to get traffic to a brand-new site. It has two advantages over waiting for the traffic to come to you organically. First, PPC ads show up on the search pages immediately, and second, PPC ads allow you to test different keywords, as well as headlines, prices and selling approaches. Not only do you get immediate traffic, but you can also use PPC ads to discover your best, highest-converting keywords. Then you can distribute the keywords throughout your site in your copy and code, which will help your rankings in the organic search results.

Step 5: Establish an expert reputation for yourself.

People use the internet to find information. Provide that information for free to other sites, and you'll see more traffic and better search engine rankings. The secret is to always include a link to your site with each tidbit of information. 
  • Give away free, expert content. Create articles, videos or any other content that people will find useful. Distribute that content through online article directories or social media sites.
  • Include "send to a friend" links on valuable content on your website.
  • Become an active expert in industry forums and social networking sites where your target market hangs out.
You'll reach new readers. But even better, every site that posts your content will link back to yours. Search engines love links from relevant sites and will reward you in the rankings.

Step 6: Use the power of email marketing to turn visitors into buyers.

When you build an opt-in list, you're creating one of the most valuable assets of your online business. Your customers and subscribers have given you permission to send them email. That means:
  • You're giving them something they've asked for.
  • You're developing lifetime relationships with them.
  • The response is 100 percent measurable.
  • Email marketing is cheaper and more effective than print, TV or radio because it's highly targeted.
Anyone who visits your site and opts in to your list is a very hot lead. And there's no better tool than email for following up with those leads.
Step 7: Increase your income through back-end sales and upselling.
One of the most important internet marketing strategies is to develop every customer's lifetime value. At least 36 percent of people who have purchased from you once will buy from you again if you follow up with them. Closing that first sale is by far the most difficult part--not to mention the most expensive. So use back-end selling and upselling to get them to buy again:
  • Offer products that complement their original purchase.
  • Send out electronic loyalty coupons they can redeem on their next visit.
  • Offer related products on your "Thank You" page after they purchase.
Reward your customers for their loyalty and they'll become even more loyal. The internet changes so fast that one year online equals about five years in the real world. But the principles of how to start and grow a successful online business haven't changed at all. If you're just starting a small business online, stick to this sequence. If you've been online awhile, do a quick review and see if there's a step you're neglecting, or never got around to doing in the first place. You can't go wrong with the basics.

It's called TrackR. It is a state-of-the-art tracking device the size of a quarter. It's changing the way we keep track of the important things in our lives.
                              With TrackR you'll gain peace of mind, knowing you can find your car quickly.

How Does it Work?

It's easy! Install the free TrackR app on your smartphone, connect the app to your device and you're ready to go! Simply attach TrackR to whatever you want to keep tabs on. The entire process of setting it up only takes 5 minutes or less.
You can attach it to your keys, briefcase, wallet, your latest tech gadgets and anything else you don't want to lose. Then use the TrackR app to locate your missing item in seconds.
Forget expensive GPS systems or tracking services. Nobody wants to pay expensive monthly subscription fees. We understand how stressful these things can be, and this is the reason why TrackR was created. This device is your VIP when you need to take care of more important things in life.
Remember the car scenario above? If you have the TrackR, you can just hide it under your car's floor mat, in the trunk or in the glove compartment. Somewhere it won't be found if your car gets stolen.
If you forget where you parked your car, whip out your smartphone and open the TrackR app. Tap on the "lost item" icon on the screen and the app will tell you the exact coordinates of the last known location of the TrackR.
