The Google Nexus 4 – A Surprisingly low priced, amazing phone

   The latest of the Google’s own nexus devices is manufactured by LG but has its own core and a vast collection of pre-installed Google apps and the new Android 4.2 Jelly Bean OS. Instead of inventing new high –end specifications in an expensive phone, this version of the nexus has incorporated the premium specs in an affordable handset. The quad-core processor, 4.7 inch display makes the Nexus 4 compete with the Iphone 5 and the Samsung Galaxy S3, but this champ comes with a far lower price tag than the other two.

Design

   We would not go so far as calling it the best handset in the market, but it a looker. The dots on the back make it look snazzy, which many men may not fall in love with at the first sight. Apart from that, it is 9.1 mm thick and feels comfortable in the hand. The close resemblance to the older apple phones can be noted in the Nexus 4’s design. The plastic feel of the back glass, absence of a removable back plate and mounting of the sim on the side tray are some design features borrowed from the apple phones. The screen is relatively smaller than the Samsung S3, but the pixel per inch density is much higher than the latter. The biggest advantage of the screen is the expansive viewing angles.

Features

   The Nexus 4 has two cameras, the 8MP primary camera on the rear and the 1.3 MP front-facing camera. These however, are a tad disappointing. The camera app is easily accessible, but has poor contrast ratios. The LED flash is just average, but the digital zoom is a disaster. One new feature incorporated in the phone is the Photo Sphere, that lets users take a 360° panorama shot for an impressive and rounded picture. The video recording capabilities of this phone are amazing; it has provision to capture stills while recording videos.

Multimedia

   The Nexus comes with limited memory storage, you have to choose between either the 8GB or the 16GB variant and the memory is not expandable. Except for heavy multimedia users, this phone is a joy to use for smart-phone amateurs like our writer. The high quality video play, fast refresh rates and excellent color management makes this phone visually a treat, compared to its more expensive counterparts.
   Despite housing a chunky 2100mAh battery, the battery life of this device is not too great. The processor and display drain the battery extensively and this is accelerated during the use of apps and games. One would be pushing to use this phone for a whole day. The newest features like the NFV (bumping the phones to transfer data) and wireless charging were promised by Google, but yet to be tested for effectiveness.   

   In short, the Nexus 4 comes with a smooth processor, hitch-less operating system and fully loaded features – all with a relatively small price-tag. This phone may not change the phase of smart phone markets, but is sure of a head-turner and might, with future models, force the other companies to lower their phone prices.

Beware of the Facebook Account Hackers

I was checking my facebook profile last week when this message saying hackers finding new ways of hacking the accounts of the users caught my attention. So I checked my settings, reset them, changed the user id and password as per the specifications. I still wanted to find out more. So i just googled the words, facebook hacking on Google and was shocked to find out many links that provided ways to successfully hack peoples facebook accounts, boasting of a guaranteed access to other persons account.  Even to think that there are people who are very interested in viewing the details of the other person gives me a sickening feeling. And these people are most of the times on the friend’s list or acquaintance list of that person’s facebook account. This shows the level of intolerance growing among us. Even greater is the surprise to know that the hackers have so much free time to kill. The value of privacy, dignity and relationships is on a decline. Nevertheless, those of us whose a

Facebook can Become an Unbreakable Prison

Facebook – Why do I hate it? 10 th anniversary of Facebook was recently celebrated on 04 February 2014. And the meter of Facebook’s achievements did not stop. For example, Facebook has a strong presence of over 1.23 billion active users as of January 2014. Facebook has an approximate market capitalization of over $134 billion. Facebook CEO also appeared on the list of biggest charity donors. Yet we find many of the facebook veterans or members who have used facebook for the last decade or so are getting wary of the site. The list of people who hate facebook is increasing. Surprising? Not really. We all know that. For example, from ‘Did you see the wedding photos of XYZ on facebook?’ ‘Did you see her baby’s photo on facebook?’ ‘Did u see their honeymoon photos on facebook?’ to ‘Did you see the rain photos on facebook?’ Did you see the morning sun’s photos on facebook?’ ‘Did you see the photos of the sumptuous lunch on facebook?’ ‘Did you see the photos of the twinkling st

Windows Live Hotmail

   Think of E-mail and Gmail comes to your mind? Well, it had not been this way always. Ask your father or uncles and they would still be using Hotmail. Teenagers of the late 90’s would know this pioneer in E-mail services too. It is back now, with a new avatar and chic looks. One of the world’s first webmail services, Hotmail was founded in 1996 by Sabeer Bhatia and Jack Smith in Mountain View, California. In 1997, Microsoft acquired Hotmail for about $400 million and launched MSN Hotmail, which was later renamed as Windows Live Hotmail. The last version of this Webmail was released in 2011 and awaits future updates. Windows Live Hotmail is being used by about 360 million users and comes in 36 different languages. Recently Hotmail was replaced with the page, Outlook.com and as the name says, the site resembles Microsoft Outlook. Outlook.com also features Metro Design Language, unlimited storage, Ajax, Calendar, SkyDrive, People and Skype. The Security Hitch    In the year
