Best Windows 8 Devices till date

With around 250 windows 8 devices launched ,here’s a look at the best of them…

1.) Microsoft Surface

Microsoft has launched its Surface tablet just like any apple product.Because,both the software and the hardware are manufactured by Microsoft.Due to this there is no problem of integration for the in-house apps,because the hardware is designed to run the apps and the programs buttery smooth.

It boasts a 10.6 inch screen,giving a tough competition to ipad and Nexus 10.The look is fresh and with the added VaporMg coating,it becomes three times lighter than aluminum.

Microsoft Surface review

The snatch factor of surface is its Cover and Kickstand. Touch Cover is a pressure-sensitive keyboard and cover.Type Cover, the dual cover and mechanical keyboard that offers a classic typing experience.Of course, the rear kickstand is an iconic part of Surface. It’s also made of metal, and does a good job of propping up your tablet – to an angle of 22 degrees – even when on your lap.

2.) Nokia Lumia 920

In Short,Nokia Lumia 920 is a very pretty, shiny phone with a very pretty, shiny operating system that’s got just a few flaws–but they’re not small flaws.

Nokia Lumia 920 Wireless chargingThe third generation of Lumia phone, the 920 has a big 4.5-inch screen, 4G LTE speeds, a very fancy 8.7-megapixel camera with floating lens technology, and fancy new ideas like wireless charging and near-field communication.

3.) HP Envy X2

The tablet measures about 8.5mm thick and weighs 1.5 pounds, while the dock weighs 1.6. Unlike competing products, the device combines magnets and a mechanical latch to keep the tablet from falling out of its dock.

The $904 HP Envy TouchSmart Ultrabook 4 is a good-looking notebook that serves up plenty of power with a blazing fast boot time, good audio, and a fairly responsive touch-screen display. Using the screen to navigate Windows 8 worked well, as did the touchpad. However, this system loses points for its below-average battery life. And, you have to take a leap of faith that a lot more Windows 8 apps will make it to the marketplace. But if you’re willing to make those concessions, the HP Envy TouchSmart Ultrabook 4 is an above-average Windows 8 notebook.

4.) Dell XPS 12

Dell XPS 12 review

Though the XPS 12’s size and weight make it a bit unwieldy as a substitute tablet, it’s still a compelling option if you’re in the market for a high-end, touch-enabled Ultrabook. The XPS 12 is almost as light as other Ultrabooks, with a premium industrial design, comfortable keyboard, gorgeous 1080p screen and a super-fast boot-up time. The biggest drawbacks seem to be the flaky trackpad and the relatively short battery life, which doesn’t improve much when you dim that 400-nit display.
It’ll be curious to see how other touchscreen Ultrabooks fare, particularly those with similarly versatile designs. In the meantime, though, the XPS 12 represents a solid start for this new wave of Windows 8 shape-shifters.

How to use Free SMS feature of Gmail

Gmail introduced its free message service feature in india.Gmail has now started rolling out Free SMS feature from Gmail for users in India. One can send SMSs from chat window to mobile phone.

gmail free sms2

  • Use Gmail Chat to send SMS
  • Responses will appear as a reply in Chat 
  • Conversations will be stored in your Chat history, just like regular chats.

Step 1: Type the phone number you want to send an SMS to and click Send SMS

Step 2: Add the SMS recipient’s name and country, then click Save

Step 3: Write in your message in the chat window and press Enter on your keyboard

Done! Your message has been sent.

The service starts with 50 SMS credits for each user.SMS credit is an allocation of SMS (text messages) that you’re able to send to a mobile phone:
Initially, you’re granted a credit of fifty messages.
Every time you send a message, your credit decreases by one.
Every time you receive an SMS message in Chat (for example when a phone user replies to one of your messages) your credit increases by five, up to a maximum of 50.

If your SMS credit goes down to zero at any point, it will increase back up to one 24 hours later. So, you won’t ever be locked out of the system.

Keep in mind that if you’d like a higher message credit, you can always send an SMS to your own phone, and then reply to that message multiple times. Every time you send a reply message, your SMS credit is increased by five. Effectively, you’re buying more messages by paying your phone company for these outgoing messages.

Block SMS from Gmail

If you receive an unwanted SMS message from Gmail Chat, you can block future messages from the sender. Just reply to the message with the word ‘BLOCK’. If you change your mind about that sender, you can send a message with the phrase ‘UNBLOCK’ to the phone number from which the message was sent (the SMS messages sent from Gmail Chat have their own number associated with the sender’s email account).

All mobile operators are supported in India for SMS Chat in Gmail.

UPDATE: Tried sending SMS via Gmail to mobiles on Airtel ,BSNL service providers but getting error & SMS credit too shown at that moment as decreased but later gets credited if SMS not sent. So at present the service might not be properly activated.

Google has teamed up with various India cellular operators to roll out the service. The partnership hints that the operators would also receive a share from Google’s SMS service. Currently, eight telecom operators support the service; they are – Aircel, Idea, Loop Mobile, MTS, Reliance, Tata DoCoMo, Tata Indicom and some circles of Vodafone. Airtel and state-run MTNL and BSNL are missing from the list.

Practical tips to increase Laptop battery life tremendously

Well, there are plenty of   battery suckers present in your laptop . One has to agree with the fact that the advancement in technology is making us dependent on it. Definitely laptop is one of the biggest devices we just can’t do without these days and also you cannot stand your laptop giving less backup. You can’t carry on with the quick wiping out of battery power. The rapid battery exhaustion leaves you clueless regarding what drains the battery most? Care has to be taken as battery life is the most important and certainly can’t be replaced very frequently.

Read on to know how you can maximize your laptops battery life.

  • Defrag on a regular basis.
  • The faster the hard drive performs, lesser is the burden sited on the battery. Therefore, defrag in order to make your hard drive efficient.
  • There are lots of programs that are always running in the taskbar such as firewall, antivirus, etc. Shutting them down while you aren’t working on the internet would be beneficial.
  • All USB devices are the worst battery power drainers. Unplug them all when not in use. From an external mouse to iPod, all of these devices consume battery power like hell.
  • Spinning CD/DVD drives are the major battery suckers. They consume battery power even when they aren’t active. Even if you have one, get rid of it.
  • Dim the LCD light. They consume battery power much above your assumption. Modify your settings and bring them down to the lowest level you can bear.
  • Put the speaker on the mute mode when not in use. Installed sound schemes play a huge role in wiping out the charge of your laptop battery.
  • Screen savers are prime battery suckers. Deactivate or switch off the screensaver in order to maximize battery life.
  • Both XP and vista is en suited with advanced power management features, make the most of it. There you can find lot of options to choose from. Manage, control and modify settings in order to maximize battery life. Set it up so that power usage is optimized.
  • Hibernate and not standby. Hibernating will save power alongside shutting the laptop itself while standby mode will slow down the CPU and ooze out battery life to keep everything in memory.
  • Do not simultaneously run two or more programs. Keeping too many files and programs in the taskbar will weaken the battery. Do not run those many files while you are working on one or two.
  • Process more with the memory your laptop has by adding more RAM. You won’t have to rely on virtual memory which is less power efficient. RAM consumes more energy thus, it is recommendable if you require running of memory intensive programs.
  • Keep the air vents clean. If the air vents are blocked it will generate more heat leading to battery exhaustion.
  • Do not leave your laptop under direct sunlight. Too much heat will kill your battery, slowly by surely. Avoid leaving it in a jam-packed environment.
  • Do not recharge your battery repeatedly. Discharge the entire battery power and then plug in charger. Avoid recharging when the battery is only partially discharged. Recharging the partial discharged battery will destroy battery life.
  • Keep updating software’s and drivers. This is because newly launched software’s and drivers are less resource hungry and more efficient.
  • Use original adapters. Make sure that the adapter you are using is the original one and has correct specifications. If not, then it will deplete the battery as well as your laptop.
  • If you don’t plan to use your laptop for quite some time, remove the battery and store in a cool place.Also ensure that the battery is at least 40% charged.
  • Pick your priorities wisely. Playing games will drain more battery than playing games. You should priorities your activities and use battery power efficiently.
